Topid Regional Message Board
Hello dear friend!
Due to this region being tagged "Recruiter-Friendly", it has been selected for our every-now-and-then RMB campaign!
We would like to invite you to Ioraqus. Here at Ioraqus we have plenty of RP opportunities, a flexible timeline at the moment, and three different communities! Raider/Defender, Casual, and Roleplay! We have a "community" for everyone!
We are also quite new, but we have relatively experienced NSers, meaning you can get far ahead right now! You can aim for a position in politics, the military, or try to be such a good roleplayer you make it to the upper tiers of the Powers List!
Don't delay, move to Ioraqus today!
Note: If you wish to establish an embassy, please do request one.
The Pacific Committee of Nations has invited you to a seat in the Pacific Union!
We would like to invite you to the Pacific Union (Pacifia) which is a roleplay region based off the European Union except in a fictional continent called Pacifia/Pacific.
We are currently in production of our charter, which a quick link can be found in our World Factbook Entry. We are taking contributions and ideas to put in our Charter so it would be helpful if you gave us any ideas.
Here is a brief overview of our region:
The Pacific Parliament ~ Based off the European Parliament, it's the highest legislative authority in the Union. You act as a MP in the Pacific Parliament representing your nation. You each have one vote in proposals and Speaker of Parliament Elections.
Court of the Pacific ~ The Court of the Pacific is the judiciary of the Pacific. All of the Justices are elected by the Pacific Representatives and are Judges of the Court.
The Pacific Council ~ The Council is the Executive Branch of the Pacific Union. They contain currently 4-5 Councils, each of which you can find in our off-site website forum "Pacific Council." The Councillors are elected by Pacific Representatives and can assign their own staff.
The Delegate is the same as everyone else in the Forums and is just there for Security. You can't become the Delegate, because there is no Head of the Region as we are a Union of Nations.
I have removed the 'recruiter friendly' tag temporarily to allow the following important post to hang on the RMB for a while.
Alright, something I should make infinitely clear here apparently. A previous version of the region Pacifica (which is mine) displayed an anti-NPO WFE and has apparently attracted their attention and ire. I should explain the full history of this region, I suppose. I'm going to go full OOC on this post, and acknowledge things that cross several different personas on NS that I don't normally link (mainly my NSG/Right-wing self and my former activities as a defender).
First, I originally founded this region (Pacifica) with the intent of it having nothing at all to do with the NPO / The Pacific. These telegrams are probably lost to history, but I even spoke to Krull and Elegarth prior to doing so. Pacifica is just a good name for a region of any type as I'm sure anyone can acknowledge. It has a good ring, and lends itself to a broad island theme that could go in any direction. I imagine this occurred in 2014 but it might have been 2013.
Second, skip forward to early 2015. In my mind I was fully done being "Topid," I spend my time being "Conservative Values" the founder of a right-wing region and totally out of Gameplay, as I generally consider Conservative Values to be my totally OOC persona. During this time I assumed that Pacifica would just never go anywhere, as I was done with Gameplay. Throughout 2015 a series of events temporarily brings Topid "back", those being (in no particular order) 1) The RL rise of Trump, within the primaries, which anyone who knows me OOCly knows I was very much the personification of #NeverTrump during the 2016 campaign and just could not come to terms with what was happening and if I was still "Conservative" if this is what it meas now - which was pushing me away from my current persona. 2) The Lazarus coup, which felt like an all-hands-on-deck moment for the persona as a defender, and I brought back "Topid" to participate in the counter-coup. 3) Towards the end of 2015 (November IIRC) the St Abbaddon raid.
Third, during mid-2015, the newly reincarnated defender persona known as "Topid" began to imagine using "Pacifica" in an anti-NPO role due to recent events in Lazarus and the inadequate response of the NPO. I believe I even mentioned the possibility once in Lazarus post-coup. I still hadn't fully committed to the idea- though admittedly it was probably more likely than not- when I tried to refound the region. I did so without a trigger and fairly sloppily (from a mobile, even) since I assumed no one other than me had looked at the region in months - which was a mistake. Knot (then of DEN) successfully refounded the region. IIRC this was some time in summer of 2015.
The mods gave me Pacifica back in 2016 when the Predator scandal revealed that basically everything DEN achieved was either directly illegal or fruit of their poisonous tree that was generating publicity and members for them that other orgs couldn't compete with.
By the time I got the region back however my grievances with NPO had almost completely subsided. It was a year under the bridge, and in the immediate aftermath of regaining this region the new Emperor issued an apology from NPO for the events in Lazarus which in my mind totally closed the books on the issue of that misdoing by the NPO.
I nevertheless designed the region (again, Pacifica) in my spare time with the aforementioned anti-NPO theme because I liked to think about what things might have looked like had that past future come to pass. This was clearly just an attempt at a fun style for the purpose of a fun style because I never recruited for the region or did anything like that. I just enjoyed designing the flag, the WFE, the banners, the forum, and imagining what would have / could have happened in 2015 if things had gone differently. Might seem a bit weird, but I've always been one to actually enjoy that aspect of NS (the styles, themes of regions, etc).
Anywho, this anti-NPOism shouldn't have been read as my real feelings post-2015. Nor do I have any intent to interact with the NPO at all - pro or against - or use Pacifica for any purpose. It was just me killing time. And since I realize now I've hit a nerve with certain people, I will take it down.
As a separate note, having nothing to do with the aforementioned NPO issues:
I also just want to make an FYI note for everyone out there that has apparently done enough looking into my status to find this region: I'm fine! I'm still playing NS daily but I'm back to considering the "Topid" persona fully retired. I won't be back in the defender-sphere. I won't be back in St Abbaddon. I maintain that St Abbaddon is a great opportunity out there for someone: it has historically founderless status that also has a strong back-story that can provide a unique RPish story that is the basis for a great potential story. Basically, there's such a strong foundation there it would be so much easier for someone to actively lead it than to found their own region, if they are seeking to build a standard NS region. I think for myself, with my involvement in the defendersphere and my involvement in the right-wing of NS (not fascism or anything, just regular old capitalist / classic conservative stuff) I've generated far to many OOC enemies to effectively lead a project like that.
You can count on "Topid" staying dark and me sticking to the right-wing persona. I've just let go of everything associated with "Topid," so I don't see anything else out there that could cause me to feel like I have to "come back" again.
Greetings nations of Topid! I'm here to ask that you join Embassadia.
