  1. [indent][color="#663300"][size="3"][font="Book Antiqua"][img]http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff252/b_graphix/CN/valflagtxt02.jpg[/img] [sup][img]http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff252/b_graphix/CN/regentL.png[/img][/sup]adies and Gentleman of Planet Bob. We come to you today to announce that after three years and seven months at the helm of the mighty Valhallan war machine, our beloved Regent Chefjoe of Buckwheats has decided to retire from the daily grind of leadership. Love him or hate him, I think everyone here on Planet Bob can at least respect the passion, continuity and resolve Chefjoe has consistently shown. [sup][img]http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff252/b_graphix/CN/regentI.png[/img][/sup]t is hard for Valhalla to envision ourselves without Chefjoe as our Regent, as he has been the face of our alliance for so very long. Since the vote of no confidence fell upon Valhalla's first Regent noWedge of Sweatros, Chefjoe has led us through many years of glory and hardship. He has managed to keep our alliance fresh and at the forefront of global politics. The sheer amount of time and energy he has invested into our alliance and into our allies is simply overwhelming. He is without doubt the greatest leader Valhalla could have ever hoped for, and one of the greatest leaders Bob may ever see. As we take a look at other alliances around the globe, it is clear that not many are blessed with a leader that has served as long as Chefjoe. Nearly every alliance that has been around as long as we have has diminished greatly in numbers over the past 4 years, but not Valhalla. Valhalla is almost 40% larger in numbers than when Chefjoe took the reins. We have grown in size, members, prosperity, solidarity, global power, nation strength, and most importantly, casualties! We are in a better position and have become a far superior alliance than we were all those years ago. We owe this to the stability and integrity bestowed upon us by our most beloved Regent. [sup][img]http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff252/b_graphix/CN/regentT.png[/img][/sup]his leaves us in a precarious position. Our Charter is not entirely specific as to how to choose a new Regent in the event of retirement. Thus we decided to resolve this in typical Viking fashion. We drew a large circle in the sand. We filled the circle with our favourite things... barrels of mead, wenches, and blunt instruments of destruction. We tossed all potential candidates into the circle, and over the course of a week the one who drank the most mead, bedded the most wenches, and kicked the most ass emerged as the new Regent of Valhalla. [sup][sup][img]http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff252/b_graphix/CN/regent_W.png[/img][/sup][/sup]ithout further ado and on behalf of the membership of Valhalla, it gives us great honour and pleasure to present to you the 3rd Regent of Valhalla: [indent][size="7"][font="Garamond"]T[/font][/size][font="Garamond"][size="6"]ronix[/font][/size] [size="5"][i][font="Palatino Linotype"] of [/font][/i][/size] [size="7"][font="Garamond"]A[/font][/size][font="Garamond"][size="6"]tlantix[/font][/size][/indent] [sup][img]http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff252/b_graphix/CN/regentC.png[/img][/sup]ertified on this [size="5"]18[/size] day of [size="5"]October[/size] in the year [size="5"]2011[/size] by the grand enforcers of the Charter of Valhalla, the Norn, [img]http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff252/b_graphix/CN/val_waxstamp.png[/img] [sup][img]http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff252/b_graphix/CN/regentNorn.png[/img][/sup] [/size][/font][/color][/indent]
  2. Congratulations Olympus, and it's nice to see the flags finally in use. You are of course very welcome, I'm glad I could help.
  3. [quote name='DarkEra97' timestamp='1313534826' post='2782435'] Happy to see Kry and Seipher up there Where's RePePe? [/quote] He hasn't managed to pull himself out of retirement yet. The appeal of the rocking chair is often too much to resist.
  4. That flag looks a bit familiar... [img]http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20070111203261/cybernations/images/thumb/3/32/Fan.jpg/200px-Fan.jpg[/img]
  5. Aww... I totally missed this thread until now. I'm taking this part as my shoutout: [quote name='SeasonsOfLove' timestamp='1311471141' post='2762464']The rest of the Oceanus crew - O_o/[/quote] O_o/ Safe travels out there SoL. I'm glad you're becoming a lawyer, I've always remembered you as someone who loved a good debate, and absolutely had to win it.
  6. Non Grata, I said it on our forums, and I'll say it here. You take anymore potential trade partners away from purple, you and I are going to have a problem.
  7. [quote name='TumultuousPapaya' timestamp='1308880851' post='2739849'] It bothered us enough that when a member of Valhalla came to us we were frank with them. [/quote] Oh trust me, I was most certainly not looking for a query that night. Your man was very urgent in his request for gov, and I was the closest thing to it available. There are plenty of people who were in that channel who can attest to that. Afterward I passed on our conversation to my gov and tried to forget about the whole thing. A minor detail I suppose, but it should be noted we (and specifically me) certainly weren't ever seeking out Fark's opinion on these leaked images.
  8. Needs more scroll graphics NoR. I had heard rumours, but I'll admit I wasn't expecting this today. Congratulations to both alliances, you've found a solid ally MK.
  9. I'm actually a bit surprised, I always thought NPO chain of command was a big deal over there. Brehon, you must be getting lax on these guys. On the other hand, that pesky war declaration thread has been catching up to this one, so by all means let's drag out some more dramatic history and name-calling in here.
  10. [quote name='pezstar' timestamp='1308515932' post='2734938'] To be fair, STA has never let our history with Valhalla die, but we're certainly not "coming for you." I've gotten the impression from this thread that your blocmates think SF is planning to do so. I really have no idea if this is true, but I just want to put it out there that there can be a long term, healthy dislike amongst alliances without anyone coming around the mountain to settle the score. [/quote] I've been distracted by the rest of this thread, but I just wanted to say I think our long-term mutual dislike is extremely healthy.
  11. [quote name='Rebel Virginia' timestamp='1308530782' post='2735194'] [color="#0000FF"]I am amazed the the amount of hostility towards this group though. While neither DH nor PB was given a warm reception, their criticisms were about how evil they'd be. Other blocs have been greeted with apathy. This may be the first [i]major[/i] bloc that I've seen announce itself and be threatened, however subtlety, and so soon.[/color] [/quote] I'd like to think that means we've done something really fantastic.
  12. [quote name='Proximo' timestamp='1308526368' post='2735094'] Congrats on the bloc guys! [/quote] Why thank you! Is that what this little ol' thread is about?
  13. [quote name='Lord Levistus' timestamp='1308423964' post='2734071'] It's closer to the correct pronunciation than some. [14:53] <&Keshav> M-Jol-Nir [14:56] <~Graphix> muh-jol-nerr [/quote] What? You don't like my redneck interpretation? wickedj, I'm no where near motivated enough to start making custom stone signatures for everyone. Just roll the dice and use one of the existing ones for now.
  14. [quote name='Bob Ilyani' timestamp='1308371492' post='2733646'] It could still use a little more blood to be honest... [img]http://forums.cybernations.net/public/style_emoticons/default/blush.gif[/img] [/quote] And scrolls.
