Icewolf's musing on the cyberworld


The new wonders

Posted by Icewolf , 07 February 2014 - * * * * * · 796 views

So it appears that we have some new wonders introduced into this game. 
Federal Reserve  - $100,000,000 + (Nation Strength * 1,000) - Increases the number of banks that can be purchased +3. Requires Stock Market

So the first of them, the Federal Reserve. Now what I find interesting here is the price scale. It would cost me 120 million...


Normative rules of Cybernations-Why they have become your cage

Posted by Icewolf , 14 December 2013 - * * * * - · 506 views

Cybernations is a world with many complex dynamics. One of the more interesting things is how players engage in self regulation-they have established a system of rules as to how alliances may conduct themselves. A common standard has been established, which can be referred to as the norms of the world. 
Effectively, we reach the point were eve...


Cybernations and Psychohistory

Posted by Icewolf , 27 July 2013 - - - - - - · 555 views

For those of you that are Science fiction fans, you may have comes across the Foundation series by Issac Asimov. This series is premised on the idea of Psychohistory, a fictional branch of science in which statistical analysis can be used to predict Human behavior. Not the behavior of an individual, but of a large crowd. The parallel is of modelling a gas...


The little book of OWF spin

Posted by Icewolf , 10 June 2013 - * * * * * · 513 views

The OWF is about spin. We all know this. Every post is a delicately spun web written in beautiful owfish. Having spent more time than is healthy reading this, I have decided to construct a translation guide. None of this is aimed at any one person (translation: No one get angry please). It is all supposed to be tongue in cheek (Translation: Please don't q...


The treaties go bump in the night

Posted by Icewolf , 20 April 2013 - - - - - - · 841 views

So this is about the treaty web and the fact that so many alliances have conflicting treaties. Which people complain about. A lot. If you are not aware of this, welcome to the OWF, I hope your first time is not too traumatising.  The thing is, everyone has either very very few treaties or treaties that might seem to clash. Yet lots of people bem...


Coup d'etat and cybernations

Posted by Icewolf , 16 January 2013 - - - - - - · 765 views

We have seen an attempt at Sparta. We have seen an attempt at GPF. We have seen what may or may not have been one at BFF. This has been a month of coups. A series of aggressive and determined attempts to change the leadership of alliances.

This blog is not endorsing this method of government change. It will not take responsibility for such efforts or the...

musing on CN Law
Why then is there a constant battle over the meaning of defence?

Because it does matter. In this world of war and turmoil people must still seem legitimate. And in this world legitimate and lawful action has begun to share the meaning of the word defence. Why? Well that is obvious. There are almost no mandatory aggression treaties left. All mandatory...


The alliance charter

Posted by Icewolf , 19 November 2012 - - - - - - · 515 views

So I've spent some time think about alliance charters. They seem to be around a lot, and are generally considered vital to what people consider "an alliance." Yet at the same time they rarely seem to make much headway in the world and for the most part we don't really think of them.

Ultimately, they seem to be a strange document. They...
