The conflict is at an end and Martial Law has been declared. Emergency powers have been granted to the victor of the crisis who has promised to the Federal Assembly to restore peace and order to Noronica.

The end?

From what I can see, Malagwi and Greater azea were two promising players who left out of the blue, which is annoying as Malagwi and I were in talks over collaboration. However, as there was a recent ban/ejection due to plagiarism, it's possible that there is a larger issue involved?

PAST TWO WEEKS
What should I be putting here
28 January-12 February Edition

Gday Islanders! Look who’s back…. Back again… Aussie’s back… back again. Most of you know the deal around this but for those who don’t I summarise the TWItter thread, the League thread and the news thread with a pinch of salt and opportunistic memes. I’d like to extend a somewhat warm, although empathetic, welcome to the nations who have made their way into Past Two Weeks for the first time: The gaya, Malagwi . So here’s this fortnight’s classifieds brought to you by Enchantan diplomatic maneuvers.


Classifieds
  • Want an extremely dangerous spider native to your nation (And a free factbook too?) Contact Osteran today!

  • Feel like getting some tea, a good arm chair and reading a short story about the descent of a terrorist involved in one of the biggest attacks in Suvurnian history from loyal citizen to communist zealot? Read Suvurnia’s citizen’s post today!


Legislature attempts blame shifting in bureaucratic Almorea, Rebels attack somewhere in a nation with a flag that’d get you a visit from the CIA and/or NSA. The Athara Magaratis attempt to fool us into thinking they have a democracy as individuals can now vote for the heads of their subdivisions whom will rotate holding the top job in the nation whilst the Totzkan Government starts up a new friendship group with Dragao Do Mar and Almorea featuring a “classic turbulent world, this alliance will give us strength to face challenges” speech. Almorean President mocked by heckler who is probably laughing at this alliance whilst looking at MSTO.

Thank you Almorea, Dragao do Mar and New Totzka.... You have no idea how long it’s taken me to get a way to incorporate this meme into Past Two Weeks.

Cosian Government brings in a new flag designed by some hip, trendy, [i]off dah streetz artist. Hillbillies vote in Ainslie and kick up a mini political storm whilst cricket teams in the nation get ready to face off in a 2 month long domestic Twenty/20 competition. The Dormill-Stiuraian and Noronnicans finally agree about something in Arvan and decide to split up the territory Korea style whilst the Chancellor of Malagwi decides a budget increase in healthcare isn’t such a bad thing.

Might need to convince his people (who nominally earn $15,000 a year) though.

Leader of Menna Shuli apparently has made a recovery and will appear in public soon whilst the Noronnican civil war they’re not calling a civil war continues. Scientists and Politicians in The Gaya claim an island in the name of Gaya science whilst the head of Menna Shuli gives us a statement on their health. Roendavarian Government trolls their neighbours, stating that Sawneeak is claimed by the nation as a “claimless national park”, “standing with nature”. People on Dulung, a kind of Suvurnian island get super angry with Roendavar. The nation of Belle Ilse en Terre opens a new airport and a new island. Leader of Enchanta is preganant whilst a religious school isn’t following the curriculum. The Mennan government increases trade regulations and checks for goods from San Javier. Martial law declared in Noronica courtesy of an ominous speech from the totally not foreshadowy overlord of Noronica.


And in the League


Miklanian delegate shows concerning concern about a nation halfway across the map whilst the Athara Magarati jumps unsurprisingly to conclusions. Ahnslen delegate ponders a passive aggressive response. Suvurnian delegate questions motives of Miklania and the League whilst the Miklanian delegate is put a bit off guard by little diplomatic fire brewing. Noronnican delegate hardly eases people’s minds about Arvan. Athara Magarati delegate backs down whilst the Corindian reminds us we shouldn’t count the militant, destabilising chickens before they hatch.

Athara Magarati government attempts to quietly kick up that whole canal thing again as a threat whilst the Corindian shuts her down. Dormill and Stiura plays the “we’re the defenders” role, leaving the Miklanian delegate continues to shut down the Athara Magarati. Wellsian delegate controversially sides with the people that haven’t been democratically elected whilst the Dormill-Stiuraian and Wellsian delegates get into a legal argument over a third party’s constitution. Athara Magarati delegates hopes that there’s a mobile-friendly version of the Noronnican constitution and then the Ahnslen delegate suggests that perhaps experts in the law should be interpreting the law.

And on that note…

The Athara Magarat circus continues as the nation apparently gets more democratic and their who knows how manyst diplomat makes a hasty exit to run in the national elections. Ahnslen delegate is confused whilst the Svalbardian delegate continues being aggressive and annoying. We get an introduction from the new Athara Magarati delegate whilst the Almorean delegate has IW Flashbacks. Athara Magarati delegate attempts to twist the already-manipulated perceptions of Athara Magarati collectivism into an argument of democracy as the Enchantan delegate re-enters the League chamber. Vancouvian delegate acts like an angry middle school teacher whilst the Enchantan delegate replies with a sassy none of your business style comment. Suvurnian delegate criticises the Vancouvian delegate and then the Mennan delegate introduces a bill to get Keverai observer status in the League (as a result of a back room deal in which they get surplus power and short term temporary skilled labour). The Wellsian delegate gives out an ultimatum to Dormill and Stiura whilst the Balniki delegate attempts to make Dormill and Stiura seem like the aggressive belligerent. The Athara Magarati supports Keveraite’s ascendance whilst pondering a contested territory’s entrance into the League. Ahnslen delegate links fufilling Keverai’s wants with ensuring its still a democracy whilst getting angry over the suggestion Kachee could join the League. Athara Magarati backtracks. Dormill-Stiuraian delegate keeps nice and quiet as the Wellsian delegate hastely leaves. Mennan delegate has an unsatisfying encounter with the Enchantan delegate outside of the chamber with its origins being this:

In my imagination, at least.

Mennan delegate then gets a summary from the Athara Magarati delegate on the chances of Keveraite membership. Wellsian somehow becomes their nation’s spokesperson to the league despite hating public speaking whilst Miklania, Polar Svalbard and Noronica second the Mennan’s motion. Twelve nations vote in support for Keverai membership (although the Roendavarian does reluctantly), Vancouvia abstains

And in the Tweetesphere


Totzkan Bureau of Foreign Affairs gives us ambiguous mini-trailer for a summit between three North Mesder nations whilst @RealPresident40 from Almorea also does so. Alteran Air Defence are wanting some new flying toys whilst that Suvurnian meme account continues. Malagwi Government continues the process to execute a person who merdered four school children.

I hope that’s enough memes for you to get through another fortnight. I’ll see you next time.

Tagging Vancouvia since he seems to like these

I had nothing to do with whatever issue occurred. I wasn't even aware that anything happened RE: a ban for plagiarism.

P.S, I left because I wanted to see how everyone in my old region was doing. I wanted to go to CoL long enough to check on people there. It'd be nice if I could talk to them through here.

I'm supposed to have labs/blood drawn this Friday but the needle used makes me really anxious. What should I do to help me get my mind off of it? Sometimes I cringe at the sensation of the needle. I'm anxious around needles like those.

I do intend to get into RP. However, Writer's block is a bitch. I'm not even able to start writing a non-NS story I am brainstorming.

I used to have to get my blood drawn twice a week to monitor my lithium levels. I found the easiest way of handling it is to just take a deep breath, let it out, and relax as much as possible. It doesn't take long, and while its not comfortable, it's far easier and quicker if you are loose, relaxed and generally chill.

Be careful with this. Hopping between regions is a good way to get banned.

Classic Advice:

You've got two options. 1) Take a break and do something else to let your mind relax and recharge, this'll take a bit of time. 2) Write everything that comes to your mind and don't stop.

I know. It won't happen again.

Anyways, I'd like to ask the region a question: Which soda do you like more? Coke or Pepsi?

I like Pepsi... Primarily because my dad likes it.

Speaking of writing, I have been pondering whether or not to introduce Citizens Thread Prompts as a means of inspiring some activity in the region and get people to write and potentially collaborate more often.

At the moment I'm mostly stuck on what kind of prompt I should use as a pilot, but I want to hear what y'all think about the concept in general and how I could implement it.

Do I have to be in the World Assembly to be on the map?

The World Assembly Telegrams are really annoying.

Yes you do. And I know just ignore them.

An average family's daily life. A normal courtship scene. Day of a low-level bureaucrat. A red carpet scene. A new museum exhibit opens. A big game for a college athlete. Two old men chatting. City police make an arrest.

All of them can work, I'm just concerned that enough people won't be interested to make it a worthwhile project.

I'm going to write my non-NS story before I start doing RP, so that way I don't have any distractions from RP.

Is this liking of Pepsi inherited by primogeniture or is there a more salian system in place?

I used to prefer (by a lot) Coca cola ("Coke" in Dutch refers to the drug only) but in early 2018 I discovered Canada Dry and since then I lost my taste for any variety of cola..

Do it. I get the most world building done when I go into the story of a ridiculously specific thing. The writing prompts are good. A Citizens one would be nice.

It's more me wanting to have something in common with him.

I lost my taste for most coca cola products after being exposed to all the flavors of mountain dew in 2015.

https://i.imgur.com/VyQKziT.png This is my script that I have made to replace Devanagari in Mitravarta. The story behind it is that during the medieval age, the ruling Svarnvati Dynasty was usurped by a rebel dynasty, who proceeded to govern the nation with a rod of iron, in stark contrast to the more free rule of the Svarnvati. The royal family took to hiding in several villages across the nation, moving from time to time. Communication between the far flung family members was needed, but they couldn't use Devanagari as their messages to each other would be intercepted within the postal system of the time, and the royals would end up being executed. So a new script was drawn up by the Crown Prince Dvarakaputr and the villagers of "Nadiyal" (located in the Western Devarohini Range) in order to send messages to other family members in other villages. Eventually, this script was taught in secret to other villagers all across the nations under the nose of the usurping dynasty and the government, and was used to write messages that eventually led to a mass scale organised rebellion against the usurpers, and the restoration of the Svarnvati line. The name of the script takes after the rebellion, and is hence known as "Vidrohi" (rebellion is "vidroh").
On the left hand side of the pic, there are place names of Mitravarta in Devanagari and in Vidrohi (red). On the right have side, there are the six "dynasties" of the various areas of Mitravarta.

Oh you poor soul.

In America we have so many flavors of the stuff you wouldn't know which one you like most.

If you're Willing to ignore the Super Saiyan Cheeto we have as president, I'd suggest you visit America.
