You lot are the best community I've come across so far on NS, so it tears me apart to see us like this. How about we discuss the best moments of the World Cup instead! Were their any standout contenders to you? Any hilarious RP's you want to remind us of? What has happened in this cycle that made y...

Zwangzug's e-Lipogram That's a wrap A draw with Sargossa saw Zwangzug fall out of this World Cup; its "Corsair" opposition top group B and will go up against non-Banijan cohosts in round two. Fabián Guzmán would start goalscoring around a fourth of an hour in, off a diagonal pass ...

The Eagles Club had been built to mark Zwangzug's victory in the sixth Eagles Cup, and to give it a location to host future editions of the tournament (at least their own team's games).

Chloe Marcina logged back onto an Unlucky Sevens fan forum. Her campaign had stalled after two matches, and rather than resume it, she figured it was time to take a break. Her adblocker glitched, and a rare foreign banner creeped through; the Holy Empire's Beach Hunk Calendar. That cover! That allur...

( Issue 472 ) Subroto walked into Wayr Stadium as a capitalist. Not necessarily an extremely healthy one, in any sense of the word. He was still fighting migraines, and still a Namirite, which in his case and many others meant a consistent commitment to environmentalism and left-wing government poli...

Micah Angier blinked back the lights from the flash of the cameras. It should have been an easy interview. He'd scored his second goal for the national team, Zwangzug had won, and the Trink press would get the chance to talk him up rather than report on the latest atrocity that Danhy fans had commit...

Thanks all. I guess I was more interested in punning on viruses to parallel with humans, but I see CWA's point that the internet would probably expose them to more risk. I think I'd still like the main thrust to be "restore internet/don't restore internet," maybe with a third option to app...
