Cyber Nations Forum Rules 07/03/2016Cyber Nations Forum Rules
In the process of registering on this forum, all players--including you--agreed to accept these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of Invision Power Board. In doing so you essentially signed an electronic contract pledging to have read the rules and TOS and agreeing to follow the rules and TOS as written. It is your continued responsibility to read, follow, and keep up-to-date with the CN rules.
The following are basic guidelines for use of the Cyber Nations community forum. Anyone caught disobeying these guidelines will be issued a warning. The forum staff works on a five warn limit policy unless the situation calls for more appropriate action ranging from a verbal warning to a double warn and suspension to an immediate ban, etc. Just because something is not listed specifically here as illegal does not mean it's allowed. All players are expected to use common sense and are personally responsible for reading the pinned threads found in the Moderation forum. Questions regarding appropriateness or other concerns can be sent via PM to an appropriate moderator. A permanent ban on the forums results in a game ban, and vice versa. Please note that the in-game warn system works on a "three strikes you're out" policy and that in-game actions (including warnings and deletions) may not be appealed. For more information regarding in-game rules please read the Cyber Nations Game Rules. 1.) First Warning
2.) Second Warning
3.) Third Warning (48 hour suspension at the forum)
4.) Fourth Warning (120 hour suspension at the forum)
5.) Permanent Ban Game Bans and Forum Bans
If you receive a 100% warn level on the forums, you will be subject to removal from the forums AND have your nation deleted and banned from the game at moderator(s) discretion. If you are banned in the game, then you will be banned from the forums. Process of Appeals
Players may not appeal any in-game actions. This includes cheat flags, canceled trades, content removals, warn level increases, nation deletion, and bans from the game. Players may appeal individual forum warnings. You may only appeal a warning if you can show with evidence that it was unwarranted or unduly harsh. If a reasonable amount of time has passed (no less than one month and preferably longer) in which you have demonstrated reformed behavior than you may request a warning level reduction. Wasting staff time with inappropriately filed reports and/or unfounded appeals will result in a warn level raise. Repeat incidences will result in a ban from the forum. Bans are permanent. Banned players may appeal to the Senior Staff if they believe grounds exist (very, very rare) in which they state their case with evidence and why explain why they believe they deserve to be allowed back into Cyber Nations. This process is not quick and the investigation into cases may last three minutes or three weeks or more depending on the individual situation. The only place where discussion of moderator action is acceptable is in the appropriate Moderation forum. Posting commentary on or disagreement with moderator action elsewhere will result in a warn level raise. Posting
All posts must be in English. Common phrases in other languages will be allowed so long as they are translated upon request. Foreign languages are permitted in signatures and avatars, however. Certain areas of the forum require you to have a nation in either standard CN or CN:TE. If you have... A SE and a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are allowed to post in either SE or TE areas of the forum. You must have your CN:TE nation name listed in your profile to post in the CN:TE section of the forum.
Just an SE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are not allowed to post in any TE areas of the forum.
Just a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your TE nation name or ruler name. Your must have your CN:TE nation name listed correctly in your profile. You are not allowed to post in any of the SE areas. You are allowed to post in the water cooler, question center and the moderation forums. Other than that, all your posts need to stay in the TE area. Flame/Flamebait/Trolling
Flaming is expressing anger or lobbing insults at a person/player rather than a character, post, idea, etc. Flamebait are posts that are made with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking another user into rule-breaking. Trolling is submitting posts with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking a specific group into rule-breaking. Forum users should not be participating in any of these, and doing so will result in a warning. Topic Hijacking
Hijacking is forcing the current thread discussion off of the original topic and usually results in spam or flame from either side. Forum users found hijacking threads will be given a warning. Repeat Topics
One topic is enough. Repeat topics will be locked, removed, and the author given a warning. Users found creating repeat topics after others were locked by staff will receive a warn raise. Joke Topics
Topics created as a joke are prohibited. Joke topics will be locked and the author warned. This includes topics in which the author is making an announcement “for” another in-game alliance. Humorous threads are permitted; it is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what is merely satire and what is actually a joke topic. Spam
Spam is defined as creating posts or topics containing only contentless material of any kind. Users found spamming will receive a warning. Examples include (but are in no way limited to) posts containing nothing but smilies, "+1", "QFT", "this" any other one/few-word contentless combination, joke threads, or posts containing quotes and anything that counts as spam by itself. Adding words to a post with the express intent of avoiding a spam warn will result in a warning. These posts and other similar contributions have no substance and hence are considered spam. Posts of "Ave", "Hail" or any other one word congratulatory type are acceptable as one word posts. Emoticon type posts such as "o/" without accompanying text is still not allowed. Posts containing only images are considered spam, unless the image is being used in the Alliance Politics sub-forum and then the actual text of the image be placed into spoiler tags. Posting in All Caps
Posting large amounts of text in capital letters is not permitted. Use discretion when using your caps lock key. No Discussion Forums
There are forums that are not for discussion and are used strictly for game and forum staff to address certain issues, bugs, etc. The following forums are not open to discussion: Report Game Abuse, Report Forum Abuse, and Warn/Ban Appeals. Only moderators and the original poster may post in a thread, period, with absolutely no exceptions. Users found disobeying this guideline will receive an automatic warning for each offense. Moderation Forums
All Moderation forums also maintain pinned threads clearly marked as required reading before posting. Failure to read and follow required reading and procedure in a Moderation forum will result in a warning. Examples include posting requests in the wrong forum, failure to include all required information in posts, etc. The standard of conduct and enforcement of rules in Moderation forums is strictly enforced and the repercussions for disregarding rules or disrespecting staff are harsh. Read the pinned threads before posting and you will be fine. Namecalling
Excessive or unqualified namecalling is not allowed in IC forums; namecalling should also never make up the bulk of a post. Namecalling is prohibited entirely in all OOC forums. Filtered Words
Any attempts to evade the word filter will result in a warning. The terms we have filtered are filtered for a reason and no excuse for evasion will be accepted. Filter evasion includes censoring or deliberately misspelling part of a filtered word. If you link to a website, image, video, etc., containing profanity, please post a disclaimer before the link. The moderation staff may still remove links if the content is deemed too obscene. Harassment
Forum users should not be stalking/harassing others on the forums. Anyone found stalking players from topic to topic, etc., will be subject to a warning. Gravedigging
Gravedigging is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Gravedigging is "bumping" old topics which haven't been active for quite some time (four to seven days is standard depending on the nature of the thread and how many pages back it had been pushed before bump). Your warn level will be raised if you are caught doing this. The Suggestion Box and Black Market forums are partial exceptions to this rule. Suggestions/ideas in that forum may be posted in regardless of age PROVIDING that the reviving post contains constructive, on-topic input to the original topic or discussion. Black Market threads may be bumped by the author if there is new information about the offered exchange (i.e open aid slots). In the Player Created Alliances forum it will not be considered gravedigging to bump a topic up to a year old, so long as the alliance in question still exists and it is not a duplicate thread. Signatures
Those who fail to read and abide by these rules will have their signatures removed and receive a warning. You may have only one image per signature which may not exceed the maximum size of 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. You may have no more than 8 lines of text and text size cannot exceed size 4. Each quote-tag, image and empty line count as a line. Inappropriate Images and Other Disallowed Images
Images that are sexual in nature or have sexual overtones are prohibited. It is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what constitutes sexual overtones. Depictions of kissing are permissible provided there are no sexual implications. Images depicting female nipples are prohibited outright. Making “ASCII art” is prohibited regardless of the image depicted. Using photos or likenesses of another Cyber Nations player is also prohibited. Drug References
Images and posts promoting illegal drug use are prohibited. References to drugs are acceptable only if the moderation staff deems that it is not promoting the use thereof. Obscene Content and/or "Account Suicide"
Anyone caught posting vulgar material (including but in no way limited to pornography, "gross," "tubgirl," "lemonparty," photos depicting RL illegal acts such as violence towards humans or animals, child pornography, death photos, and any other obscene or offensive material in either text form or picture form) will have their account(s) permanently banned, and their ISP contacted along with any other applicable internet and RL authorities. OOC Threats / Revealing Personal Information
An OOC threat of any nature will equate to an automatic ban from the game and forums. Likewise, the publishing of personal information of any other player without their explicit permission is grounds for warning and/or a ban from the game depending on the severity of the offense. Death Threats / Death Wishes
A death threat or a death wish of any nature (including but not limited to telling another player to commit suicide) will result in at very least a 40% warn level increase and 2 day suspension from the forums, with harsher punishments, including a complete ban from the forums and game, up to the discretion of the moderation staff. Quoting Rulebreaking Posts
Do not quote any post with obscene content or any other content that has to be removed by the moderation staff. Doing so makes it more difficult for the moderation staff to find and remove all such content and will result in a warn level increase. Putting rulebreaking posts of any kind in your signature is prohibited. Forum Names
With the exception of moderator accounts, all forum accounts must match up exactly with the ruler name or nation name of your in-game country. Those found not matching up will be warned and banned immediately. Forum account names may not be profane or offensive. Multiple Forum Accounts
With the exception of moderators, if you are caught with multiple forum accounts, the multiple account(s) will be banned, warn level raised, and your identity will be announced by a moderator to the CN community so rule-abiding players can take IC action against you. Multiple forum account offenders will receive a varying percentage warn level raise and/or a permanent ban on a case-by-case basis. Posting For Other Players
Posting for banned or suspended players is prohibited, as is posting for any person without a nation. This includes making warn and ban appeals on their behalf. Imitation &. Impersonation
Imitation in terms of this forum is mimicking the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in an attempt to be satirical or generally humorous. Impersonation in terms of this forum is copying the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in order to present the illusion that the person is in fact that user. Imitation is fine and can be quite funny. Impersonation is disruptive and is warnable. Please pay attention to the subtle difference between these two concepts. A player may not impersonate another player by emulating the characteristics of someone else's past or present account in an attempt to harass, stalk, or flamebait. Creating a new forum account in an attempt to impersonate a standing account will result in deletion and banning without notice. Any attempt at imitation and/or impersonation of moderators and game staff is strictly prohibited and will be met with harsh repercussions. Avatars
Size for avatars is limited by the forum mechanics, therefore there is no size issue for a user to worry about. Avatars must be in good taste, and any avatar containing a picture that is too violent, disgusting, sexually explicit, insulting to another player or staff member, etc. will be removed. Avatars that are potentially seizure inducing will not be permitted. Players may not "borrow" the avatars of any moderator past or present without permission. Swastikas and Nazi Imagery
The swastika may not be used in signatures or avatars. Pictures of swastika's are acceptable for use in the In Character (IC) sections of the roleplay forums, so long as its context is In Character, and not Out Of Character. Pictures of Hitler, mentioning of the Holocaust, etc... have no place in the roleplay forums, since these people and events existed in real life, and have no bearing or place in the Cyberverse. Other Nazi or SS imagery is forbidden in all forums. Moderation Staff
The revealing of the private identities of any Cyber Nations staffers past or present is strictly prohibited, and thus no speculation/accusation of identity is allowed. Doing so is grounds for moderator action against your account appropriate to the offense, including a full forum/game ban. Claims of moderator bias should be directed to the highest level of authority--the Head Game & Forum Mod/Admin, Keelah. Claims of moderator bias without supporting evidence is grounds for a warning. Blatant disrespect of the moderator staff is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to spoofing moderator accounts in any way, sig/avatar references, baiting, flaming, rude demands, mocking, attitude, and unsubstantiated claims of bias. They are volunteers hired to enforce the rules. If you have a problem with the way a moderator is enforcing the rules or the rules themselves please contact Keelah. Attempting to use the moderation staff as a weapon by abusing the report system in an attempt to get another player warned or banned is strictly prohibited. Do not ask about becoming or campaign to become a moderator. The moderators are drawn from CN membership but moderation positions are by invitation only. Asking to become one will substantially decrease your chances of ever being asked. Aiding Rule Violators
Any user found to know of a serious rule violation without reporting it to a game moderator (eg. knowledge of a user with multiple nations) will be given a warning or, in more serious cases, have their nation deleted. Aiding Banned Players
Any user found to be harboring, aiding or otherwise knowingly helping a banned user will be deleted. This includes knowing of their existence within the game without reporting it to the game-moderation staff. Questionable Actions and Content
The forum rules are not designed to cover every scenario. Any action that is seen to be counter-productive or harmful to the forum community may be met with moderator action against your account. The Cyber Nations Moderation Staff reserves the right to take action against your account without warning for any reason at any time. Private Transactions
Nation selling and other private transactions via such auction sites like eBay is against the Cyber Nations terms and conditions. While our moderators cannot control what people do outside of the game you are not allowed to promote such private exchanges on our forums without expressed permission from admin only. Anyone found to be engaging in such activity without permission will be banned from the game. Advertising
Advertising other browser games and forums is prohibited. Soliciting donations towards commercial causes is also prohibited. If you wish to ask for donations towards a charitable cause, please contact a moderator before doing so. Extorting Donations
Donations are excluded from any kind of IC payment. Anyone found extorting others for OOC payments will be warned in-game and/or banned. Third Party Software
Third party software is not allowed to be advertised on these forums by any means (post, signature, PM, etc). These programs can easily be used to put malware on the user's computer, and as such can cause huge security issues. Anybody who is caught spreading links to these will at the very least have their warning level increased. Other Forum Terms & Rules Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below.

Our senators for the month of April are as follows! 1) Northern Empire [Ruler: Northern Empire] [Alliance: The Templar Knights] 10/23/2008 [Team: Maroon (Since 10/23/2008)] 111 2) Benfica-Land [Ruler: Ninja] [Alliance: Nordreich] 2/1/2007 [Team: Maroon (Since 3/1/2014)] 108 3) Creepville [Ruler: Steve Buscemi] [Alliance: Non Grata] 2/7/2007 [Team: Maroon (Since 9/25/2011) 76 4) Kickastan [Ruler: Chuck Normis] [Alliance: Coalition of Royal Allied Powers] 3/4/2007 [Team: Maroon (Since 3/4/2007)] 67 5) Frontier [Ruler: hackerhog] [Alliance: Random Insanity Alliance] 1/9/2008 [Team: Maroon (Since 1/9/2008) 63 For those of you keeping score at home!
Shimmer posted a topic in Alliance Announcements (IC)Official Announcement from the Bills Reduction Agency (BRA) The Bills Reduction Agency (BRA) has been collecting past due notices from Children of the Morrighan for the past 44 days. We currently only have 2 bill collectors on staff and I fear the other has gone inactive. Thus far, I have collected 76,305 Infra, 43,224 and returned 537,388 Infra back to its rightful owner. The Bills Collection Agency has opted to outsource its current accounts in collection and you may view them below. Shimmer, Head Collections Agent tl;dr (It's longer than the announcement) I have been attacking CoTM since some time in January. Nothing personal, but they are a majority black team alliance and hitting Sparta would be cliche. Got bored with CN and wanted to burn some pixels. Posting their top 25 WC info in case they decide to join this war. There are some juicy details like 78 million dollar WC's and someone has close to 30B. What a variety. Probably going inactive after this fun ends. Running out of nukes sucks. yolo.
A Random Insanity Production Finally an answer to all those asking where's Cactaur? We have been watching as our allies have been attacked needlessly and a supposed bloc was created by our former treaty partners in OBHFA to attempt to take over our sphere. We do not believe that CRAP nor GOD has done anything to destabilize the maroon sphere, and in fact the actions of M3D have already harmed our sphere recklessly. As such, this senate cycle we are running our own senator to combat the scourge facing our beloved maroon sphere. In light of the hostilities faced by our allies, we have decided to declare a state of war between Random Insanity Alliance and Nordreich. As always we remain hopeful that those within M3D realize that only through unity shall Maroon truly become great, and we hold open diplomatic channels to solve any perceived issues that may have transpired among those on Maroon. We hold no ill will towards our fellow maroon alliances, and perhaps after a few rounds of war they shall forgive whatever years old grudges they may still hold. #notmysenator #fakecactus
TREATY FOR MAROON DOMINANCE Article I: The alliances of Non Grata, Nordreich, and The Last Remnants (“Signatory Alliances”) join together for the mutual domination of Maroon. Article II: Should the Signatory Alliances’ dominance of Maroon be threatened, the Signatory Alliances are obliged to use any and all means necessary to address such threat and to defend one another when in pursuit thereof. Article III: The Signatory Alliances agree to refrain from hostilities against one another, and to resolve all disputes peaceably. Article IV: The Signatory Alliances agree to distribute the Maroon senate seats as follows: 1) Non Grata will hold two (2) senate seats 2) Nordreich will hold two (2) senate seats 3) TLR will hold one (1) senate seat 4) The distribution of senate seats may be changed with the agreement of all signatory alliances Article V: Signatory Alliances agree that they will not sanction the member nations of any of the Signatory Alliances. Article VI: Which alliances constitute a threat, for the purposes of Article I, and how to respond will be determined by the Signatory Alliances on an ad hoc basis. For Non Grata: Abshire, Duumvir Erwin Schrodinger, Duumvir For Nordreich: Oro Iban Aozpi, Kaiser Latexi, Kronprinz Kaiser Hansen, Reichskanzlerin PuliSher, Cancertroll For The Last Remnants: Triumvirate of TLR Kestral Hombre de Murcielago Jgoods45
Following a minor dispute on the Maroon senate a few days ago, presumably regarding the “Pro peace” proposal, the leaders of TTK and RIA received these messages: As the remaining signatories are all either allied to one another, or essentially no longer exist as alliances, we are hereby announcing that “One Big Happy Family Accords” is considered defunct. We are not certain as to why the cancellation was necessary but are open to communication between our respective alliances to solve any misunderstanding that might exist, OBHFA had allowed for over 2 years of a peaceful maroon. We hope to continue good and amicable relations despite this cancellation.

An open letter to Non Grata Dear NG, We are glad you were able to put together this Bloc to take down the alliances of CRAP and GOD, with a combined NS of 2.6 million, compared with your own 5 million NS, Nordreich’s 4.6 million NS, and TLR’s 2.7 million NS. However we’re slightly confused, the treaty of M3D seems to effectively act as a DoW on the entirety of Maroon, yet strangely enough TTK was absent form the declaration of war. This is especially strange given the number of occasions on which your members have expressed distaste or contempt for us. You have declared war on the inactive, unprepared, and unconnected, but we would say we are the ones you most want to fight, although it seems you are unable to declare on us directly due to some crippling cowardice. Perhaps you want us to run headfirst into the jaws of Oculus, or perhaps you do not wish to offend those who may be somewhat sympathetic to us. Maybe you just wanted to test us, and call us cowards should we not do as you intend. So we will make this simple; if you want to fight us, come and fight us, no need to involve inactive AAs that are mostly a means to an end for you. No allies, no ghosting, #19 on #23, 1 on 1. For once NG show some honour. We will be waiting.

Treasure Island. Who wouldn't want to find an island with buried gold? This story starts in 1700 with a girl named Kiyoko, born on the island of Dejima, Nagasaki, Japan. Born the daughter of a servant woman and an employee of the Dutch East India Company, Kiyoko was not given a very enjoyable life until 1712, when her family moved to Amsterdam with her father, though he did not acknowledge her as his daughter he maintained her mother as a Servant as a sort of atonement to ensure Kiyoko was not living in what he saw as the complete poverty of the Asians in comparison to his refined European taste. Her mother, Yoshiko died soon after they reached Amsterdam, and Kiyoko took it poorly, culminating in her eventually burning down her Father's Manor and escaping to England. Now being a young exotic girl in England all alone was not the wisest of ideas, but she had enough money taken from her father that she would manage for a few days until she had thought of the next step in this rather rash plan she had come up with. The first Inn she had reached that she felt seemed inactive enough that she would be left alone was the The Quiet Horse's Inn. A run down looking place, the furniture was nothing like she was used to in her father Manor and far closer to what she had remembered in Dejima. So much for refined european tastes, she thought to herself. Kiyoko paid the Innkeeper, an old Irish woman, for the next week and asked for her meals to be brought to her. The next several days were spent reading, she had learned how to read both Dutch and English at an early age due to her father's business, and soon learned that the so called "New World" the Europeans had found were said to be lawless, the Caribbean no longer a place for unhindered travel. Piracy had existed in Japan as well, it was common knowledge on Dejima who needed to be bribed to ensure safe passage, and with the Dutch East India Company as the monopoly of the island, they quickly made friends with those who did the pirating, turning a blind eye to their actions in exchange for their selection of targets focusing on the other East India Companies, providing the Dutch goods to be delivered cheapest and safest to Europe. Rob Selby, a poor sailor and occasional pirate, had checked in a few days later. The two finally met downstairs around the fireplace just before dinner time, the crackling of the fire the only sound other than their voices in the tavern. The exotic woman had inspired many questions for him, and for her, an attraction to the freedom and anonymity the seas provided. The two talked for hours and as the liquor flowed and with careful topic selection on Kiyoko's part, Rob came up with the idea the two should run off together to the new world and have a new start. Of course they would need money for this, she had a reasonable amount saved up, but Rob was wise enough to have her get a taste of the pirate life before trusting his future with the beautiful but mysterious stranger.

Once upon a time, Mogar was wandering around IRC looking for people to troll, and since the only active channel left on coldfront was #thebearcavalry, that is where he ended up! After an all nighter involving a lot of Alcohol and Debauchery , the governments of RIA and TBC were seeking to cure their hangovers with the best known remedy, a greasy plate of bacon. While they were chowing down on a heaping pile of delicious bacon while Shurukian ate some Kale, and large servings of Shadow's private reserve, they got to talking and the following agreement was written down on a slightly used napkin. Article I: We should probably not kill one another We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves. Dalai Lama In that spirit RIA and TBC agree to a peaceful coexistence as friends and allies. Article II: Something about information and !@#$ If either signatory catches wind of intelligence that affects the other signatory, they should share it over some steak and cold glass of whiskey. Article III: I don't know what to call this Clause While bears are awesome and cacti a prize to behold, it should be noted by any would be aggressors that an attack on one may be seen as an attack on the other. In that case either alliance is encouraged to come to the defense, whether financially or military of the other. Unless said attack occurs to Keres, Shurukian, or Kaitlink, in which case Mogar's gonna nuke whoever does to hell. D: Florida: Development Clause In 30 days RIA and TBC will review this treaty and decide to either upgrade or cancel this treaty! Article V: "Becoming Vegetarian". Should either side get swayed by Shurukian's hippy girlfriend ways and won't let them eat meat they are required to give 73.5 hours notice to the other party.

The real problem of humanity is the following: we have paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions, and god-like technology. — E.O. Wilson With the world around silent, Los Angeles had swollen to a city of nearly forty million, quickly rising to rival Seoul and Tokyo for largest city within the Imperium and the world. Of course with such a dramatic population increase and hundreds of thousands of new arrivals a month, crime was a constant problem for the local Law enforcement. Surveillance was the easiest aspect but only prevented crimes in the commercial districts, the poorer residential areas were polluted with criminals and the dregs of society, but the city kept growing and the wealthy had long since retreated to their towers of glass and steel, turning a blind eye to the problems of the lower city. Though it was the City of Angels, the majority of the population felt that the gods had long since abandoned them. The Syndicate had absorbed the vast majority of the various gangs that had plagued the city before the Imperium's arrival, maintaining far more organization over the prostitution and drug trades that had filled their coffers with billions in profits that were quickly laundered through various banks under shell corporations. Ironically, the level of legitimacy required for such endeavors had meant the Syndicate had to behave just like any other corporation within the Imperium, even sponsoring several of the Formula One cars in the Imperium's global circuit. Kobayashi Corp, one of the companies originally set up to simply shovel ill gotten capital into, had managed to transform itself into a media giant, turning a healthy profit even before considering the Syndicates "cash infusions". Upon the Grand Prix of Long Beach is where our story begins, it was a typical race, with the exception of several of the audience members, the CEOs of several of the sponsors were all in a sky-box watching the race, Kelly Kobayashi had noticed her prey as he entered the spacious room. Most of the rich and powerful had augmentations that were unnoticeable beyond a metal detector or an X ray scanner, but it wasn't as though MoG[Corp]'s CEO was a normal case. The metal upon his right forearm showed clearly, allowing several small holographic projector to be open and easily used. She smiled as he walked up to the window next to her, looking down at the cars darting around the race track at over two hundred miles an hour. A blank expression crossed his face for a moment, running a quick check to ensure he addressed her properly. "Ms. Kobayashi, I wouldn't have taken you for a racing fan."
It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness Chinese Proverb [hr] Mars, what a boring planet. it took decades to terraform, and even then the results were not ideal. Vast oceans covered about half the surface, funded by several EAI corporations to be a gateway to the outer rim, with Pluto being the final objective, most of the planets could not sustain life, but their moons could hold stations, beacons of humanity in the silent abyss. The trip took over a week of realtime, and honestly it was just a drag, most plugged into the latest holo game or movie, they just seemed to bore me after a while, I was left with a feeling of Hiraeth, a craving for a homeland that no longer existed. Nobody's did anymore, there were the occasional blips but mostly the various versions of Earth, Terra, they had all burned down to just a candle compared the roaring fires that once raged. Mars, to followup on some alleged ruins that were buried under the sand. The structures were not from the EAI, and looked nothing like the Tikal remnants the Imperium spent trillions chasing after among the stars. There was so much to still do, it was as though I needed to be in ten places at once. I wasn't even certain why I decided to follow this up, but the book that started my bizarre adventure what feels like centuries ago wouldn't shut up about the red dust ball. The oxygen would be breathable at least, though not incredibly appealing, similar to being on a mountain on earth on the surface, on the highest points of Mars I would require full oxygen and temperature protection, but my final destination was below the surface.
:Internal: Home Islands There were hundreds of millions in the surrounding areas all starving, with their infrastructure destroyed, food supplies ravaged by the gluttonous Mongolians. Vertical Farms, a practice the Imperium had perfected but had not required until the war began resumed in earnest, it was hoped that within a year enough grain and rice could be produced to allow for the beginning of exports to those unfortunate enough to not have a central national government. In the mean time rationing would begin, along with a propaganda campaign to attempt to keep the civilian population at least tolerant of the rationing, while they would be good hungrier than usual, they would be ensuring the survival of the surrounding peoples, one of the core tenants of the Imperium way of life, ethnicity and religious beliefs were of no meaning, a human was a human, and they all deserve equal treatment. Joseon The Peninsula had already begun its own recovery effort, Vertical farms were built in Northern Joseon, working on restoring the bread basket of the Imperium and allow them to provide assistance to the rest of Asia. Gyeongbokgung would begin restoration, having been ravaged by the war. Manchuria The last remaining mainland province was devastated, recovery of the mining and industrial sectors was of the highest priority. the population was decimated but happy to be freed from the harsh Mongolian treatment, being held in concentration camps for nearly the entirety of the conflict, the oppression was severe but simply ensured the Imperium as proverbial carrot to the stick. Aisu-shō The Imperium's R&D facilities had been working on overdrive to return to the technological dominance they once had, Kazuko had been on a tour of the province, walking along a beach just after what passed for dawn in this part of the world, just after 10:30am, a symbol of that technology, now abandoned sat upon the beach. the local governor was walking along with her and asked if they should remove it, but she gave him strict orders to leave it where it lay, yet another symbol to remind the Imperium's citizens of the cost of their freedom. Siak Republic Left mostly untouched, another Imperium industrial base needed to be recovered, more importantly was ensuring the Malaccan Economic Zone was secured. FOr this purpose a new navy was required, the old one being lost. [spoiler] Army 717,330 Soldiers OOC: I'll divide them up later, about to rebuy my moon colony tomorrow anyway.

:Private: It'd been decades since Mogar had been able to sit back and actually apply himself to something more important than himself. While there was not many things that actually managed to meet that requirement, Launch loops, while effective, were simply not enough for what he had planned to build. Space Elevators would allow the world's resources to be used upon far greater things than simply blowing each other up more effectively. Locations for three of them would allow for nearly equal capabilities for each of the continents, and ensure supply lines would not be too lengthy. The next step of course was to actually communicate with whomever remained, Alleged new super countries spawning from Belarus and Northlands meant there would be a large portion of his idea already completed, having the majority of the world under an active governance to ensure the most effective usage of resources. The first location was southeast of Singapore, and a simple phone call made that Space Elevator agreed upon. The Second and Third Locations would be slightly more effort and require someone else's pen. Congo was the next on the list, and meant speaking to Belarus. The conversation was left up to Katsuro to handle, his mother had gone off the deep end, she was somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, but that was about all she was good for as well. Katsuro would send a diplomatic cable to the Belorussian Foreign Affairs Office, with a similar message being sent to the Northlands to discuss a more civilized method of breaking up global governance. Mogar would do the same for the third location, most likely in Ecquador, for that land it would require the blessing of the United Caribbean States.
The Los Angeles City State had continued to make progress, the population were relatively indifferent to the idea of joining a nation with a capital halfway across the world, but on the other hand, the Imperium was one of the few nations left, and realistically the strongest. The process for the French territories to be annexed had continued but a North American holding would be far more risky for the Imperium to undertake, Several harbors would begin the process of expansion to be used as Imperium naval bases, as well as airfields within the territories. Care was taken to not overstep into Northern California, in respect to Cascadia. Imperium construction companies would begin the lengthy process to bring Los Angeles up to the same specifications as the rest of the Imperium, a task that would take decades. For now though, preparations were made for the Crown Prince to arrive and personally negotiate with the local governments to transition to Imperium territory.
CNRPA is a diverse and large world. Everyone has their characters. It can be pretty easy to forget who is who. So I've decided to provide this thread and a basic template so there is an easy reference. Thank you Rudolph for this template: Quote Alphabetical Listing of Characters:
With tensions cooled, briefly at least, Kazuko's next goal after Pacific Security was Arctic Security, the Nords had worked with the Imperium in the great war, and while communications had been lacking since then, it was time to change that.
Mogar posted a topic in Fantasy RP (IC)Antasija and Mogar stepped through the gate as normal, on the other side though, he was alone. He looked around for a few moments, he was in the middle of a dark forest, so the where would be difficult, Strike one. A flick of his wrist informed him there was no satellites above, so the time period was anywhere from the early 1950s to... pretty much 4,000,000,000 BC, so strike two. The sky however could afford him some information, while not an expert he knew enough about the stars and their proper positions to quickly deduce that he was in the Northern Hemisphere. The exact time was impossible without a more in depth investigation, but he estimated perhaps the 1500s, having once visited Europe in 1493, the stars appeared as he recalled, and he was on roughly the same latitude as Rome. It took him several minutes to decide what to do, even calling out "Antasija!", several times. No such luck, for once she had even gone first, but she had always appeared next to him within seconds when he had gone first, what could have possibly gone wrong? Their intended destination, Rapture, 20XX, just before her disappearance, apparently did not sit well with fate. More interesting to him was rather than ending up in the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, he instead was in Europe. Mogar picked up his bag, sliding it onto his shoulders and set out through the woods, he could use a flashlight, but that'd raise more questions than he really needed to deal with at the moment, finding out where exactly he was would be the first step to solving this mystery. It took over an hour but he eventually came to a dirt road, it appeared to be decently traveled and he decided to head north, civilization had to exist somewhere.
The Imperium had began surveillance of Alaska over the past several months, with the strategic importance of the largest former state of America, and a history entwined with Japan, the movements begun by Cascadia into British Columbia and the Yukon were a transparent move to continue onward into Alaska. Katsuro decided something had to be done, and the more radical of the military had agreed. the 1st fleet would park itself 100 miles south of Kodiak Island, setting up a radar picket and launching AWACS patrols as well as beginning ASW operations to ensure no surprises. The 2nd fleet would make the same movements 100 miles south of the Kenai Peninsula. Ten of the Imperium's Sōryū-class submarines would lay in wait in a line across the Gulf of Alaska. OOC: I can provide a map to a GM if needed) The 2nd Corps of the Imperium marines would land on the Alaskan Peninsula. with UAVs observing the Cascadian advance, moving by helicopters to Kenai, everything to the west would eventually be claimed by the Imperium, but for now Kotzebue. Kodiak, Bethal, Homer, and most critically, Barrow would be the targets of choice for the Imperium. Military presence within cities would be kept to a minimal. The Imperium forces were used to the Arctic, they would maintain vigilance until the Cascadian response came.
