I've revamped the GPA page some months ago, but my nation page has largely stayed in the same format since I started it. Any tips on how to improve these pages?
Here's another short story from me, it's called "Crushed".
It’s a late night. The TV is running. I sit in the middle of the sofa, while she sits to the left of me. There is a silence, and then she puts her feet on my lap. Those legs… Those brown, silky, long legs. I find myself resisting the urge to kiss and lick them, as if they were Fudgesicles. Trying to fight this feeling is futile. Maybe I should give into temptation just this once.
It almost seems like the OWF is made up entirely of straw men. Is this the way it has to be? Rational argumentation should have a prominent place here. Why? Some may say arguing a point logically is boring, but to those that say that I say "You must never have studied philosophy." Rational arguments are chess matches, they require finesse, they require strategy. In other words, they're difficult. I know it's easier to eat the chips rather than the eggs or chicken, but the chips aren't wor
DBDC has many relationships with many alliances, many of which have significant upper tiers. The alliances best in a position to destroy DBDC are also unlikely to do so because of these connections. However they all have something in common: most view DBDC as a partner of necessity to keep their upper tiers safe so they can focus on other threats and keep aid flowing. However, they all share a common interest, being significant upper tier forces, in preventing DBDC from becoming too much to m

After glancing at the wiki with the intent of updating the forum link, I realized that it's been 6 years and a month since I started playing. There's been so many great times that I can barely remember them all.
Despite all the doomsaying, the sea of !@#$%*ing, complaining, and butthurt, (or perhaps, sometimes, because of it) this has been a great community.
Thanks to everyone for being your awesome selves!
Any Hip-Hop fans out there will appreciate this. Last night, I found a song by 2Pac called Runnin' From the Police. It features the Outlawz, Biggie, Stretch, and Buju Banton. It was recorded in 1994. It's significant, and almost scary/creepy/weird to listen to, because it is the only known collaboration between 2Pac and Biggie while they were alive. Nonetheless, it's a really good song. The beat is amazing, and everyone in it had good verses.
Three of the Outlawz dropped the first three verses,
Here is a short story I just wrote called "Wasted".
By: George Gordy
I’m wasted. No, not wasted as in drunk or high. I mean wasted as in my entire life, thus far, has been a waste. I’ve wasted so many opportunities to do better out of selfishness and stupidity. My mistakes have caught up with me, and I don’t see the point of doing this whole life thing anymore. Should I end it all, right here in this bedroom? Should I put my loved ones through the shock and horr
I wrote a short piece, I was thinking of submitting it to my college's literary magazine. I wanted to get some feedback on it before I submit it, though. So tell me, is it interesting ,is it !@#$, is it worth submitting?
I appreciate any feedback.
Hypocrisy is an oft slung critique on the OWF. It's an easy argument to make because everyone in this game who's played for almost any amount of time can somehow be made out to be hypocritical on just about any topic. However, there is a massive problem with this:
It doesn't work as an argument.
Calling out someone for being hypocritical in their arguments is an ad hominem attack not a valid critique. Yes, the person in question may very well be hypocritical, but that hypocrisy does not nec
The link I have provided is to a five-chapter short story I finished writing this past summer. It's called Plummet, and it's about a kid named Chris Winslow who basically has a rough life and falls in with the wrong crowd. I've put a lot of time into it, and I haven't gotten a lot of reviews. If you get around to it, try to read it and leave reviews on the blog. Thank you.

I noticed that there hasn't been a global war since 2013, when, in the past, there have been global wars every 3 or so months. I can imagine that by now, everyone is very restless and waiting for the next big conflict. I imagine that since we've waited so long, when the next global war comes forth, it will unleash a tidal wave and shake the very fabric of this game.
What do you think?

I look in the forums and all i see is fantasy RPing, alliance drama and the rise of team drama. But we need to think about the fact that in CN, you play as a NATION. It has grown to the point where the alliances seem to be the real nations and your nation is just like a
