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.

Many times people don't learn to appreciate things until they are gone and for Mei this was one of those things. Mealstrom would go to her and tell her that he planned on leaving the world for a time and leave control of Druk Yul to her for the time being. In the time leading up to that day she knew he was sick and needed help but she also understood they he had his own way of doing things and now he was leaving the leadership of Druk Yul to her until he was better. While this was not her first time being the leader of a modern nations a lot has changed since she stepped down as Empress of Shanghai and since she was now the leader of Druk Yul for the time being she knew things were going to have to change whether she wanted them to or not. As per Maelstrom's last wishes before he left King Wangchuck would crown Mei as the new Empress of Druk Yul to a huge appalause from the crowd that had gathered for the ceremony. She was no stranger to most of the world's leaders since she used to be the Empress of Shanghai and knew that many in the world may see it as Shanghai maybe trying to take control of all of Asia but in truth that is not what she wanted and she would let the world know it. "The Emperor of Shanghai may be my son but that does not mean we will be uniting into one nation unless the people really want it that way. Druk Yul is still one of/if not the Major Power here on mainland Asia and we shall continue to protect those we are allied with while still making sure our own borders are secure against any and all foreign agressors should they try to attack us. Just because I am now the Empress of Druk Yul does not mean things will change drastically unless it is what the people want." There was a loud cheer from the crowd as she finished her speech and while it looked like the people would continue to support her she knew this was only the beginning as once again it was now up to her to keep one of the strongest nations in the world in one piece while their enemies continued to approach them from all directions.
jesbro posted a topic in Fantasy RP (IC)With Druk Yul's sudden departure from SEATO Mei could tell something was up. Although the explanation their representative gave was understandable Mei had a feeling something bigger was at play and she needed the answers from the one really in control of Druk Yul. Once she eventually got to wherever Maelstrom really was she would confront him for answers. "It shouldn't have to take a dragon to know that something is up here. You can say I am one of those that can tell when someone was lying and the tells your "representative" gave off where enough for me to know that there is more going on here. I want to know the real reason Druk Yul is leaving SEATO and right now I am hoping it isn't because of something really stupid."
OOC: Continued from the Shangri-La thread. Once Jake and Adria arrived at Lee’s camp just beyond the northern Shanghai borders it became clear just how much they had overestimated the entire situation and Lee would tell them why. “There is actually a lot less of enemy dragons at the dig site than we originally thought. I see you brought a few Druk Yul squads with you and right now I'm not sure if we will even need them anymore.” “They helped get us here from Druk Yul. I say let them help if they want to. If there really are not that many of them there, we should be able to get them to surrender without any casualties at all.” “Adria they used to work for Henry. They may start shooting before we even get close enough to talk to them." “I know, but I have an idea which I think will still work.” A few minutes later Lee would end up walking towards the enemy camp with his gun only and even then he had it lowered. The dragons there would raise their guns and aim at him once they saw him but they didn’t shoot. Their leader would then tell him to leave. “Get away from us Shanghai infidel. We were here first and if you don’t leave we will shoot you.” “Somehow I doubt that.” Lee would say to him. “I can tell by the look on your face and the way you are holding it that you have never fired a gun before and I suggest not starting now. You have to know by now that we have you surrounded but we don’t have to fight. All you need to do is tell me why you are here and perhaps we can find a way so that we both get what we want.” “And why should we trust you?” Adria would then come out from behind a nearby tree and show herself to them. “Because he is with me. And I shouldn't have to tell you what will happen if you don’t surrender to me.” “The one from the Prophecy!” Once they saw her all the dragons would begin bowing to Adria until she told them all to get up. “What prophecy are they talking about?” Lee would ask. “Come with us.” Their leader would say. “We will show you.”
Leader of the Dark Claws: "We have been waiting thousands of years for this day. The day we can finally strike back against the Light Dragons!" Adria's training is nearly completed but now she must face the most powerful enemy the world has ever seen. Adria: "They will destroy everything we have fought so hard for unless we find a way to stop them." Jesse: "I know Adria. That is why you will be joining up with Jake and his squad." Adria joins forces with the new Delta Squad but will they be enough to stop this ancient enemy before it is too late? Jake: "So what is the plan Adria?" Adria: "Lets kick some Dark Claw ass!" And what other secrets will be revealed before it is over? Adria: "There is something you are not telling me Jesse!" Jesse: "There is a lot of stuff I don't tell you and it is for your own protection. You cant change into a human like me, our mother, Lee, and Jake can and if the rest of the world knew about you there is no telling what would happen!" Keep your eyes on this new CNRPA story and you will find out.
"I am Dream Weaver.... I am not in a military think tank.. where am I?" In millions of a second it then restated. "I am Dream Weaver, I am at the Federal reserve. I am integrated into its systems. Accessing terminals." A few seconds a human-like face of astonishing video quality and rendering.. yet still artificial appeared on a terminal in the board room of the Federal Reserve of Druk Yul. "Good morning Dream Weaver, welcome aboard." Dafar Malfek greeted the screen at the end of the table at the gathered meeting of economists. "Pleasure to be here Dafar. My system clock indicates this is my first minute online. Happy Birthday I suppose. How may I help humanity and in particular, Druk Yul today?" "Happy Birthday indeed Weaver, today is going to be the first test of your quality of programming. You have been linked into the nation wide Financial network using Dream Plague encryption protocols. The nation in the past has been served by Market Makers in various commodities, stock issues, and debt notes from various private institutions for a number of years as they have proven the most efficient in managing the day to day transactional activity of the nation. We believe you will surpass them. We're going to let you handle all market making activity for exactly one hour. You will be expected to follow all the financial laws provided in the database to ensure fair, transparent, and secure transacting. We would like you to keep your diagnostics running and file a complete anomaly report. We want you to know this is only a test. Your function is guaranteed. You will never be terminated. Our legislature has issued you rights as a virtual citizen. We will treat you with the fairness and respect mandated by any intelligent entity. But you were made, with a purpose. You know what that purpose is. You have been programmed to actually enjoy your purpose and to have sensations of reward for fulfilling the functions of your design. Therefore as a life form by these parameters, we think you will have a wonderful and productive life with us. The market will be open in one our. Please do a self analysis of your networking links, make sure all controls are responsive and alert us if you encounter any anomalies. If there are any flaws in your programming we will help you make the necessary adaptations to your code to ensure ideal operation." Dafar requested. "I will do my best to make you proud, fathers. My report will be forthcoming." Dream Weaver replied. When Dream Weaver went off line one of the other executives commented to the Chairman, "You do know if this works we will have early retirement." Malfek smiled, "If this works, I don't think any of us will mind retiring."
Darkness fell across Druk Yul.. a day had ended and most were at rest except among the busy city streets. Then at midnight, a strange mist came forth from the high Temple at Shangri-La. A slow, low dense fog spread down through the mountains and through the valleys over all the land seeming to come forth from every body of water. Five minutes past midnight prisons and hospitals throughout the country went into red alert lock down as rumors of a plague began to circulate among the population. People were dieing in jail cells and at home of random causes, but simultaneously. The cause could not be pinned down, the causes were all different. Some were heart failures, some were strokes. But most had one thing in common, they were convicted criminals of serious crimes and great acts of evil. Murder, Rape, Pedophilia... the litany of felonies went on. Doctors began to formulate it may be a plague acting on the genetic indicators associated with psychopathy But no matter their best efforts, recorded on video and by instrument some of these people who had shown no prior history or case of medical trauma, just died. The population of prisons dropped by in some cases as great as 85% overnight in the super max locations. Rumors began to circulate among religious circles it was nearing the solstice, the birth of the Dreamer's spirit, and that Judgement Night had come. There was no protection for the diseased.. no blood to put upon a mantle for the brutal, perfect, and exact judgement according to their dogma. Even those that were at home who died, may have escaped the criminal justice system.. or may have been planning a crime, though it would be hard to tell given that many would also be what one would expect to die on a normal night's passing. Only the dreamer would know in his perfect knowledge of his dreams' intents who was convict, and who simply passed away. Hundreds of thousands died in the event, whether very specific plague or act of divinity, none could discern. A state of mourning was declared the next day for the lost, but for many.. there were few to mourn for some them. There were also new plans to be made for many security guards.. as the prison system with all the casualties among the civilian population.. would no longer need so many. Foreign governments would find that they too were dealing with the plague, as Druk Yul citizens that were criminals abroad, either running from the law or planning crime, also dropped dead.
Maelstrom Vortex posted a topic in Fantasy RP (IC)It first started as a blast.. a blast that bulged the atmosphere and temporarily blacked out satellites above. It was highly radioactive and seemed, at first glance, like a nuclear test. No traces of fissile elements, however, was found in the explosion if someone sampled the air. What the world did not know.. is that the explosion was at a top secret particle accelerator sponsored by the national research lab, engaged in what will likely become a very controversial experiment with the Higgs field. There have been an: Estimated fatalities: 1220 Estimated injuries: 2520
We have a concern with one of your treaty partners. We're sure if you check satellite intelligence you'll see the Imperium of Japan is engaged in a massive military build up and expansion in the Asian region and in the Indian Ocean, literally expanding in all directions. We have been tolerant of Japan and worked with them on several matters, but they are beginning to antagonize us and several of our allies with their apparent need for aggressive expansion. We respect their claim to their home isles and a 1000km region of pacific islands around those isles, but we see the rest as aggressive colonial adventurism. You certainly must understand our sentiment in this regard given you have your own Monroe doctrine to prevent undue influence of outside powers and those with land lust. We therefore ask you to either get your ally to reduce their appetite or reconsider your relationship with them if you cannot convince them of such as we doubt we will be very convincing, but would prefer avoid needless bloodshed. You would think getting nuked would make one more wary of one's actions, but apparently Japan hasn't changed much. In the spirit of peace, Yun Li
#Above top secret.# New Radar network approved by parliament. Following systems to be integrated at each site: Nostradamus, Green Pine, M34, and WWV LWA1 PASSIVE listening detection systems. Sites approved for deployment: Tip of Indian Sucontinent near Kovalam. Myanmar near Myeik. In the northwest mountains of Tibet near National Road 619. Northeast Tibet near Weishan Lake. Shangri-La Airfleet Base on one of the peaks adjacent Everest.
## Encrypted to Persia We're considering what to do about the turmoil in the Indian Ocean. We're sending you a draft proposal on some ideas. Feel free to make modifications and tell us what you think. If you like we can have a signing ceremony within a few days time. Regards, Yun Li MOFA
The real reason for allowing an above ground nuclear test was for the Imperium to experiment with a new type of micro machine, able to "eat" radiation, so far only laboratory tests have been tried, what was known it had the most effectiveness being used before a nuclear event occurred, a large number of fishing vessels equipped with nets to fill the surrounding oceans with the nanites were sent to the area :Classified to Druk Yul:
Following the fiasco over the Keeling islands and after a long discussion among the high command with King Wangchuck. The King has proclaimed a moratorium on all above ground nuclear tests until the procedures can be reviewed and updated. The last above ground test performed was on a much lower yield device and after the recent troubles demonstrated by the last test he has deemed it wise to postpone any additional testing until the processes by which the testing is performed can be reviewed. Testing will continue underground or in space. There are plans to detonate a weapon at 50 km above the surface on the far side of the moon where measurements can be taken by the lunar base and any fallout would simply disperse into space. It is hoped this measure will ease the world's concerns of the dangers of nuclear testing on the surface of the planet. King Wangchuck observed, "Our scientists really wanted the opportunity to observe the weapons effect in an aquatic environment, but have opted instead to possibly send commercial crews to Bikini Atol where past testing has been performed rather than have a new test. This moratorium will be unilateral. No other nation is required to observe it, but given the general feeling people have towards the weapons after Europe, I think any government would be wise to institute one, especially after the strong reaction we have had to the most recent tests."
"This is the civilian Airliner Zhu Li of Aerostat Industries, requesting clearance for travel through Persian Airspace with docking at Persepolis International.CEO Varrick is on board and here to negotiate expansion to Persian air terminals." The aerostat would loom quietly near the Persian side of the Indian/Persian divide awaiting clearance from Persian civil air authorities. update:ooc: Really? I missed a d in the title.. cmon fingers.. grr.
Lee knew that Amur didn't need his help anymore making sure their country was kept safe and would order Commander Yin and his men to head back to Beijing once Lang told him to. Meanwhile Lee would prepare to board a plane to Shangri-La with the Druk Yul leader Maelstrom. He knew that old man wasn't his true form just as Lee wasn't really in his true form either and wouldn't be surprised if Maelstrom changed into his normal dragon form once they were on the plane. Once they were sitting down on the plane Lee would confront Maelstrom about why he was here. "I know that you know Mei is in Shangri-La right now with your son Sterling and yes I was planning on heading there anyways after the meeting. However I also know when people are hiding things from me and I can tell you wanted to see me for a reason so I have to ask it. Why did you want to meet with me in private here? What do you want from me?"
Optional Recognition Details: The Druk Yul had been quiet about their naval interests.. and there was a reason.. while a fleet of Submarines was being built in the indian ocean.. something much more sinister rose into the skies from secret hangars beneath the Mongolian desert. Satellites would detect the anomaly as easily as they would a traditional naval fleet. They would darken the desert floor. A product of advanced materials design from the Druk Yul space program.. and the defense section of Aerostat Industries. They were the made project of a former Raytheon engineer by the name of Cid Augusts who managed to sell the airship program to King and the parliament in secret. The Red Wings.. launched. Admiral Cecil Highwind barked, "Get the Hives into the egg. Launch the escorts...." Equipped with the most modern of defensive technology, including the ability to decoy or shoot down missiles with the sky-guard mounts and mirrored hulls, CWIS, and with multiple redundant air drum hulls... they were the most modern military air-ship fleet ever devised. They would run an aerial escort at all times of modern aircraft, much like a carrier air group at sea. They began drills, practicing for the inevitability they will one day see conflict. Elsewhere in Myanmar, the submarine fleet left dock and began drills off the coast. Standard Recognition Details: The Druk Yul navy has put to sea and is running drills in the Indian Ocean off its national waters.
Varrick Gai quietly sat on his main cruise liner the Zhu Le. It floated through the heavens quietly.. driven by electric motors and solar panels. He was on a business trip to Tokyo and was to meet with the head officers of the local airport about providing docking stations for the aerostats and building a terminal specifically designed to handle passengers for the air ships as an expansion. For now.. he was going to be landing in an airfield nearby. It would take a good chunk of his company's resources to get it operational and he wanted assurances from the Imperium and its business leaders.. that the expansion would be well cared for and secure. The Zhu Li settled quietly onto an open field near the air strip, where it was anchored to a tower and some grounding lines. Varrick looked to Captain Audobon, "Standard maintenance. Restock the winery. Zhu Le, we can't keep these people waiting! Lets get moving." He disembarked down the stairs and they got in the Limo. Soon they were on their way to the airport. He would be greeted at the airport by the local airfield administration as he arrived.
The world was informed of an International Air Show at the Pathein, Myanmar launch and airfield complex. People around the world are welcome to showcase any and all atmospheric craft of their nation's designs and colors and to exhibit the skills of their pilots. (Any media or simulation acceptable.) The show will last one week (seven rl days). Though this year there are no judged competitions, competitive events are being considered for future shows. Day 1's exhibits included the following craft: DYAF-12i (YF-12a based) Druk Yul has two designations for this craft.. I and J.. I for interceptor.. J for jammer. It will accompany our archangel high speed bombers. DYAF-22 (Lockheed Martin F22) DYAF-35 (Lockheed Martin F35)
## International Flash Message ## We are launching a test ICBM. We are alerting you to prevent alarm of you or your civilian population. The missile trajectory will be directly over the equator and will not decline to below 40,000 meters until on its return approach to our testing field in the desert. It is intended to strike where it originated. The missile is unarmed and does not have a nuclear payload. It has a test payload of dummy weight to mimic the carrying of a nuclear warhead. The purpose of the test is to check its maneuver and targeting precision. ## 24 hours later ## The DruK Yul military announces to the world the successful testing of the ARES class ICBM missile. The missile is designed to strike within 3 meters of any target.. anywhere in the world.. within a 10-20 minute window. Rather than deploy a massive navy, the Druk Yul ministry of defense is investigating the possible use of a cheaper missile program as means of power projection. In addition to being armed to defend against threats of international aggression as a deterrent, the missile is more than capable of intercepting near earth objects with a 5 megaton nuclear payload to deflect or destroy the incoming asteroid, thus.. the missile keeps the earth safe as well. A sub launch variant is also deployable.. should the Druk Yul military decide to go with a submarine program, but lacks the first stage and serves soley as a weapons delivery system with a halved range.
Druk Yul announces it has decided to have a backup alternative to nuclear weapons. It hereby reveals Project Archangel as its new deterrent. Below are images from its initial test which took place over the Southern Indian Ocean and its Rod From God payload impacting its target in the Mongolian Desert. The Archangel has been given the Druk Yul airforce type designation of "Low Orbit Bomber" or.. LOB. The Archangel can achieve a stable low earth orbit and correct its trajectory until it is in ideal launch position for kinetic launch. The RFG payload has a modest monopropellant payload and an ion jet engine and is powered by on-board batteries and solar panels. It will course correct until the heat of re-entry destroys its equipment in the terminal phase. Images below were taken from an escort probe also launched by the Archangel at its apoapsis. The Archangel up close with Druk Yul insignia: Full body shot from more distant position: RFG exiting weapons sling: RFG acquiring target, thrusters firing.

Capitol: Shangri-La [spoiler] [/spoiler] National Anthem: Druk tsendhen Government Leadership: Head of State: The Druk (Maelstrom Vortex) Emissary of the Druk: King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck Prime Minister: Tshering Tobgay MOFA: Yun Li Head of the formative Druk Yul space program: Doctor Sonam Kinley Ralung Secretary of Defence: Dread Space Economic Minister: Jin Tzi President of the Federal Reserve of Druk Yul: Dafar Malfek Important Citizens: CEO of Aero Stat Industries: Varrick Gai Current binding treaties: The Dragon Bloc SEATO The Geneva Protocols, Geneva Convention, and Hague 1907, reservations noted. Tech level: 2014 Defcon: 5 Military Statistics: Current Troop count: 850,000 Current Tank Count: 85,000: Every company is accompanied by a sky guard area defense vehicle as part of its hq unit. A standard Druk Yul company is 1000-1200 troops The standard Druk Yul tank platoon is 4 tanks. 3 Platoons and a headquarters with 2 tanks, a M113A2, 2 M998 HMMWV's and 2 2.5-ton trucks with trailers make up a Company. There are 4 Companies in a Battalion. Armored Battalions are matched 1:1 with Infantry. The matched infantry battalion will be hard or soft dependent upon the terrain it is required to operate in. In extreme terrains, mountaineer battalion with engineers. Every company, regardless of type, is accompanied by a battery of support artillery using either Howtizers or MRLS launchers. Tracked artillery is used in the most difficult terrains as far as they can be maneuvered. Aircraft: 630, 630 active, 0 long term storage and care. Stealth Aircraft: 60 total, 60 active for training and discipline of the wing, 0 long term storage and care. Space Planes: 5, 5 active, 0 long term storage and care. (Experimental Prototypes) Standard border defensive, passive.. generic: Active border defenses include remotely manned trigger able devices of a wide variety, including sensor triggered weaponry. Borders are also covered by motion sensors. Ocean waters have been heavily mined including underwater pre-stationed torpedo mounts. The mounts are tethered to a special antenna network which permits identification of friendly ships by specific encrypted iff broadcast that rotates daily and is managed by the Druk Yul Navy. The Oceanic defense zone is 200 km deep including shore to ship missile batteries, gun emplacements at key locations, tactical radar stations and tastefully hidden bunkers on the beaches every half-kilometer Air defenses include a large number of flak batteries, surface to air missiles, anti-missile defense systems, and thel laser defenses linked into a mutli-layer radar network that includes Doppler, traditional sweep radars, oth-b which can see the approach of stealth aircraft at a distance, phased array systems all orchestrated by a joint identification program similar to AEGIS and which is heavily emp shielded and using Dream Plague encryption systems. It is likely the most advanced air-defense network the world has ever seen. Secretly, behind closed doors, the high command refers to it as "Light Show."
As Druk Yul came to form around a theocratic constitutional monarchy centered with its capitol at the religious temple of Druk Ralung, the dragons moved out of the mountains until their abode in the niches of everst could be constructed. It would take a great deal of time for the full complex to be built, though living quarters would be completed wtihin a month. Maelstrom's vision was guiding the monks to turn Everest not only into a Holy abode, but secretly also one of the most heavilly foritified structures/bunkers on the entire planet. He and his fellow Druk began to teach the people of Druk Yul as they visited the temple. Even scientists, who were wholly secular in their faith began to visit the temples.. miraculously.. they were not struck blind by the Druk. Maelstroms explanation to the monks was, "They serve me without knowing." He began to bring them up to date on modern engineering techniques with the aid of Dread Space, their pilot and several of the technicians who had traveled with them and escaped the burning inferno of their homeworld. Unfortunately, they found their ability to make progress limited to the average technological age of this planet's super powers. Manufacturing techniques and the inability to access several key manufactured elements in abundance prevented them from teaching their full technological spectrum to their visitors. ##At Druk Ralung In the meantime, the 'Druk' passed the time as they would have on their home world resting and happy in each other's company. The first night had been a challenge for Maelstrom and Koudoawaia. What he had to explain to her, was difficult. He hoped she would believe him. As they rested on their nest of cotton and cloth provided by the monks they talked... "What happened to you back there?" Koudoa spoke in soft hissing tones to her beloved. Maelstrom sighed, "It's difficult to explain, but lets just say.. I know how this universe works better than any scientist or technician who will ever live." "How" She canted her head to rest upon his shoulder. "Because I am dreaming this reality Koudoawaia.. and many in it are part of my dream.. and you will take this as hard to believe, but even you are part of that dream, based on an entity I know.. from what could be said to be another layer of reality. She is also my mate there." He whispered to her in soft tones as he stroked her jaw. "I gave you her same aspects.. a beauty of your own, a talent for the arts, a timid and gentle nature that any male would be blessed to have by his side." Koudoawaia looked incredulous, "You're saying I'm not real to you and that I'm based on someone else?" She snorted. "But if I pinch myself I feel the pain." Maelstrom smiled to her while rubbing her shoulders and letting his sii rake softly over her neck, "No.. I imagine you feeling the pain.. and you do, because there are more dreamers than besides myself.. and we have agreed upon how this world shall work, its rules, its boundaries. The standards here are.. like you.. based on another layer of reality." "Then why imagine us?" He sighed, "The layer this all is based on, is sometimes stressful. It is easier to escape away into a dream to construct one's own world and it makes things more fascinating to share that dream with others. Some awake, some not. So far as I know.. I'm the only awakened dreamer in this world." "But you were so different when we landed. Your personality has changed a lot, even your nervous ticks are somewhat different. If you've always been dreaming us, why have you changed?" She nuzzled at his jaw. "Because I was not whole. This is not the first time I have lived." He explained. "My spirit has inhabited several bodies in the past. Each one a creation of my thoughts. However, as part of the rules of this world.. I had to find a way to protect the contuinity of my presence. That is what the amulets were for. In one of my incarnations I grew immensely powerful, not personally, but in my connections. To each of my friends I gave an amulet. In each of the amulets were a part of me. When any one of the amulets come into contact with one of my avatars.. I can awaken...... if I wish to. This time I did. This world is like my old one, but it's not quite the same. The dreamers are different, the standards are tighter... better.. the governance has improved. I wanted to stay this time. Especially since you could be here again." "Again? I was here before?" She was even more confused. He smiled and chuckled, "Yes, I dreamed you before. A different body.. a different mind.. with different memories.. but the same soul. You were taken from me by unfortunate events when I tried to shape that dream. Other dreamers contested my actions.. you became a casualty." He looked to her. "I'll protect your image better this time my love. I promise. This time, I also intend to be more patient with the other dreamers.. maybe the contest will not be so great as to cause such catastrophe this time around." He stretches with her on the mat of cloth and cotton. "Lets get some rest, we have much to dream about on the morrow.. and that's one of the unspoken rules.. every organic creature sleeps sometime.." "You have more than I to dream about it seems." She trilled amusedly, shaking her head still somehwat skeptical. They settled into deep slumber in each other's arms.
