The Black Hawks and the gang from EPSA, Lily, Aurrelius and Thaecia were enjoying their day when they heard some very confusing news.

Apparently, a group of internet netizens had engaged in some highly risky and speculative investments which is in the process of costing hedge funds millions of dollars, and generally sticking it to the financial establishment.

Image
TBH embassies are a hot commodity rn, only going up!

Anyway, fancying themselves quite the savvy investors, the crew consulted their copies of the Barefoot Investor, read every book written by Warren Buffet, watched the Big Short, read the Wolf of Wall Street, watched the Big Short again, and finally they were ready to take on the forces of finance capital.

Armed with nothing but determination, disproportionate skills at clicking buttons in a web game, and the solidarity of those never likely to own a home, our intrepid investors set out to short stocks, initiate hostile takeovers, pumped and dumped dogecoin, and purchased shares based on their true market value with absolutely no behaviour from big capital influencing the free market.

Well not that last one, we live in the real world after all.

What we did instead was make sure every single one of our investment team remained on the ball, by taking regular hydration breaks, and making sure our hands were warm. The Atlae Isles certainly did not disappoint on the latter, with this pair of rather impressive updating gloves!

I am once again asking for regular hydration breaks. Water is a fundamental human right, and the bottom 11% of people don't have access to clean water.

Gameplay,

I'm going to assume by now you've read this thread.

First and foremost -- the views expressed by Jakker aren't those shared by the rest of the Council and overall the Black Hawks. Jakker tied in XKI/TSP with CCD, a fascist region, due to views on regional sovereignty, then doubled down on this. Jakker should know better then to say CCD's views on regional sovereignty and XKI's views on regional sovereignty lump them together. Defenders are our IC opponents, and tying them in with the fascists is a take that should have never happened and one that we on the Council of Hawks condemn.

Secondly -- After a discussion in Council chat, we've decided (all of us) that Jakker resigning makes the most sense. Jakker will be moving to the Council Advisory Board and taking time away from the game.

Finally, I'll be rejoining the Council as Overseer of Blade Corps. Aquila (Talon), Dom (Talon), and Dax (Terra) will be maintaining their current positions within the Council.

Soda Switching

Sergeant Miravana was tired of big soda bossing around the cola industry. In order to combat these beverage beasts, a cheap and delicious soda would need to be developed. He knew they would need to cut down on production costs, so he snatched his friend and professional syrup stealer, Frenchy II, from the campaign trail. Together, they infiltrated unsuspecting regions in order to steal their High Fructose Corn Syrup! With all of the supplies gathered at a minimal cost to the hawks, they began to concoct Dr. Hawk! After some frivolous taste testing and redesigning by Corporal Baedan, the soda was ready to hit the shelves!

Final Design of Dr. Hawk

Once the product had been finalized, it was time to sell it! With the assistance of Sales Manager, Sakana, supermarket "contracts" with various regions were "negotiated." Pleased with the vast sums of wealth obtained, the hawks subsidized the development of more flavors, making Hawk Sodas Inc. a new cola powerhouse.

European Roulette wheels and the lack of Craps makes these casinos a lot less appealing. I hope Zizou and BearBear weren't trying to compete against each other and not the dealer.

Also... that's a craps stick the Black Hawk is holding, not a Chip Rake which is what a roulette dealer would be using.

Carl the Skeleton watches from above as the Hawks set out on their mission.


The Carl Chronicles.

In the beginning, Carl created NationStates. Now NationStates was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface, and the Spirit of Carl was hovering over the waters.

And Carl said let there be two updates. And there was two updates. Carl saw this was good, and called one update minor and one update major.

Then Carl said "let there be Absolute Update Fuckery". And there was Absolute Update Fuckery. And Carl saw this was good, and called this variance.

~~

Now we could cover all the stories from The Carl Chronicles, but these were all stories that we learned in Sunday School. So let's get to some of the stories that you may not know.

One of these stories was when Carl came across a group of raiders calling themselves the Black Hawks. The Black Hawks were an odd bunch. They talked about liquid dog. They believed in J. They held up little yellow men as deities. They were a misguided community, but they weren't so misguided they were lost to the ways of Carl.

Carl decided to visit these hawks. He came down to their nest from his ceiling fan in the sky. From his observations, he was expecting them to welcome him. After all, he was a talking skeleton. Instead the hawks were hostile. They threatened to steal his kneecaps. They threatened to dye his hair ginger. They told him he was not, as Baedan would say, "poggers".

This angered Carl immensely. Carl was the most "poggers" skeleton to exist. Whether he was living in the closet of a closeted lesbian, living on a ceiling fan above the m o r t a l s, or scaring small children on accident (skeletons are scary sometimes on accident ;-;), he was a Based:tm: skeleton.

Carl decided that the hawks must pay for their transgressions. They would either need to go out on a raid to promote the good word of Carl, or sacrifice the kneecaps of all the baby hawks for the next three months. While the Arkansas and Michigan Dumbasses had no problems with some kneecap sacrifice, for the greater good they set out on a raid. They invited their allies in The Joint Task Force, in Lily, and in 3 Guys to come worship Carl The Great Skeleton with them.
