Sorry to hear that you think so little of me, Transvaldime, as to express the above. I take a great deal of time and effort to ensure that what I put up on Lyran Arms is well thought out, technologically do-able within current understanding of science (ie, requiring no new research other than what c...

Isn't that the whole reason the Longsword is so big? So that it can just barely cram a OTH radar set into it? Thats at least is what Lyras claims anyways, though I have seen that it would be rather hard to cram said OTH radar into the Longsword. Yep, that's his explanation. He still needs another s...

It does seem oddly unjust that the Raider answer to this issue is 'do things which participate in our mechanic, so as to stop us if you can'. If I'd said 'you have to RP properly, otherwise I'll RP my invasion of your territory, and prevent you from raiding as you'd like', then I'd be laughed at, bu...

Just more food for thought, if confessors can't trust that their priest will keep their confidence, then they won't go. Then the (theoretical) voice of conscience won't be heard. Thus, nothing is gained, and a social good is lost.

British got there first, and colonised the place.
No indigenous population before that.
Islands wish to remain British.

Argentina's persistence is almost admirable.

We have every right to disagree with Mod appointments and every right to call for a Mod to step down. It's not against the rules and has been supported by Mod ruling on numerous occasions.

An update from another thread, quoted below for convenience. It's about the reaction I expected. Closed ranks, chilly-down warning, etc, etc. Oh no. The mods have been slightly annoyed at our response to them insulting us, made clear they don't care about our arguments, and then told us to move on ...

No. Lyras is picky about alliances. We'd be perfectly ok to help it defensively, however.

RP players getting dragged in to GP is completely fair. IRL, militaries attacking a country's citizens drags the civilians unwillingly into combat. It's the job of Defenders to stop and protect the citizens, just like the militaries oppose each other. And this is supposed to be a simulation, is it ...

Link to the complaints thread for Mallorea and Riva, which I think needs to be added to the OP, so that the two topics no longer become confused. Duly added. This is, actually, part of the underlying issue. To R/D folks, this is a storm in a teacup. Just another region to invade or defend. No big d...

Nothing is sub-proof or missile-proof. Many things are missile-resistant, and you could argue Longsword is one of them. Subs pose issues, but that's why you (should) have escorts... Lots of escorts.

Beat the Longsword in length, NS is now over. Thanks for playing. There do exist many NS ships longer than the Longsword. And heavier. And deeper and wider and so on. The Longsword was the only supercapital that fielded an OTH radar, and thus is why it's the only one you tend to see around. Others ...

Not the rod itself, that which fires the rod. Plane, satellite, etc. The rod doesn't just appear out of thin air (unless by the expression you mean space... ergo, orbital).
