Congratulations, Fark. For too long, you've let those evil 40k NS nations keep you down and oppress your peoples. Surely, sanctioning someone with no trades or other ties to Aqua will turn the tide of this great war in your favor. Your strategy and wit is to be commended.
So a couple weeks ago I accidentally remembered my login information for my old photobucket account, did some looking and found this. I figured I'd share it just for the humor aspect as well as for the historical note.
I present to you... the PIAT web I used to maintain back in 2007. Observe the beautiful simplicity, the treaty spamming of RIA, and the fact that probably well over half of the alliances represented are long dead.
Well, I decided to dust off my blog again to give another glance into my views of the politics of CN. For this one, I decided to look into an issue that a great many have aruged about for a long time. Nearly every group since the Great Patriotic War have asked those outside of direct conflict to think about what is wrong about the game, and to somehow rise up and do battle against it. Kudos for those groups for convincing me to sit down and think. It's not a common occurrance.
I will prefac
With all the argumentation and lecturing on why people fight in the OWF, I figured I'd throw in my own analysis on why people really fight.
Simply put, war and fighting is fun. It breaks the monotony of sitting around so that every 15-19 days you can re-arrange some pixels, collect some pixel money, and build up your pixel stats. Unless you are enamored with number-crunching and pixel building (also can be read as "Unless you're GPA or similar groups"), that tends to get old after a
The government of Solamnia is one that has shifted significantly over time since the first time the country was unified, but many of the titles have maintained their traditional, if not antiquated, names.
The Executive Government of the Solamnian State
This is the part of Solamnia's government that handles all nationwide and foreign issues. It is led by the Lord Magistrate of the Realm (LMotR), a title currently occupied by Lord Boris. The LMotR traditionally has final say in any and all dec
(OOC: I thought I'd try my hand at some RP entries about my nation)
Lord Boris walked down the corridor leading away from his office, footsteps echoing along the way. It had been a month since he had stopped by the facility that he had taken to calling "The Glowing Candy Shop." He had decided at breakfast that he would spend the morning touring the nuclear launch facility just outside of Palanthas.
"Sir," one of his aides interrupted the silence, "the Department of the Treasury is requesting
Well, I felt I'd continue my blogging series here with a discussion on the types of things we'll likely see in future wars. The way wars are fought in CN has evolved not only in line with changes to the actual game, but also with changes in the strategies and playing philosophies of the playing community.
This strategy relies on declaring war and commencing attacks on an alliance just moments after it declares war on one of your allies. We started to really see this heavy duri
In the last several months, there has been marked increase in the number of smaller alliances bursting onto the scene. Some people feel that this is a bad thing, while others believe it makes no difference or is beneficial to the game.
Reasons why I believe so many small alliances have been popping up:
1. Desire for leadership - Many people feel that they have what it takes to try their hand at leadership. Given this, it is only natural that small groups of these people will group together
The GPW quite possibly has been subject to more revisionism than anything else in CyberNations history. The interesting thing about the majority of the revisionism is, I believe, how wrong most of it tends to be.
The staunch NPO crowd makes the claim that they won the war. Those who opposed them believe that the Orders lost and that their group was the true winner. I believe a third case is true.
Both sides lost the war.
To truly "win" a war, one side must eliminate the other side as a thr
Well, I think I'll start this blog to give props to those who also flew the McCain signature that I started to use in the weeks leading up to the election. I started to use the sig on here and on a few other forums. I received many PMs and IRC queries from people both loving and hating the image.
What impressed me most about the response though, was that the response was so overwhelming with others also flying the image (keeping the source link the same) that it tipped me over the bandwidth l
