Well, if he can at least know what exactly they are up to, then it's still a powerful weapon. But maybe he should just get another one and ask it when the update is. Just in case the first one doesn't have a good sense of time.

:palm: He gets his information the same place most other people do. The gameplay forum, and most of that info is at least a week old if not more.

I figured that would be how he got his information. I was being sarcastic and going along with the joke about the Magic 8 ball being Luxdonia's source of information.

If it means anything, I get my information from boxes of cats we pass by while running through the update.
Strange that I always manage to get people jumping in before defenders have a chance...

Believe what you want. You are pretty much guaranteeing that no defender organization will ever look at your numerous applications seriously, so you may as well quit applying. 8)

Recruitment Moratorium Over!

For three months, we were forbidden to recruit. For three months, we were without our life-blood. For three months, we slowly lay dying. For three months, we waited in agony for time to pass. For three months, we were barely alive.

But how the months fly by. As soon as the recruitment moratorium expired, our recruiters spearheaded campaign after campaign, raising our regional population by over 700% from 30 nations at the beginning of May, and watching it skyrocket to 226 nations at the time of writing, less than a month after the ban’s expiration. We had fallen, but we have risen again. We were dead, but we are alive again. We struggled in the beginning, but we rose above all adversity, emerging stronger than ever before.



Morning’s End: A Fictional Narrative

Unable to be present in the initial offensive, I, Sgt. Tyegëa, encounter Brigadier-General Knot, as he managed to hold off the initial front line of liberators:

Though Knot was evidently determined not to discuss these events, I found another occasion to seek him out.

“The founder I told you about, the one who I thought had suffered such a crushing defeat — I have heard that she is still alive. She has come on unhappy circumstances, I am told. It all seems very unlikely — but then the way she disappeared was unlikely too. And so the rumors I have picked up may not be so unlikely after all.”

And he described them in more detail. He chose his words carefully when we touched upon Otaku, and he did not speak at all of our victory that night.

“I was rather frightened when I had the story from the high priest, and did not listen as carefully as I should have. But how could my wife possibly have learned of it? I know all about her nature, and have no doubt that news of this sort would leave her in mourning. The talk I pick up from her about Otaku worries me terribly.”

I knew that he would never, in what seemed to be the frankest of conversations, let slip something he had learned in confidence.

The mystery haunted us, day and night. In what far reach of the world would Otaku be? How might we, with dignity, hide the news from her, the news of Japan’s fall at our hands, lest she come rushing back, with an army? Knot needed the facts directly from the high priest of Raideron. He made solemn offerings on the thirteenth of every month, sometimes in the remote shrines most sacred to Lord Raideron himself. This time he would go on to Nugut. He took his wife with him, and I also accompanied them. He did not mean to tell our families for the moment, not until he had more precise information. Perhaps he hoped that the girl’s presence would bring an immediacy to an encounter that might otherwise seem unreal. If the girl in the high priest’s story should indeed prove to be Otaku, and if, further, she had indeed returned, even in a strange new guise, off among a strange new entourage — the truth would not be pleasing.

Such are the thoughts that troubled him, his wife and later, myself, along the way.

After several BBQ's with Guy in TRR, defenders have conceded their defeat!

A big shout-out to all of our allies supporting the occupation in Japan: The Black Hawks, Lone Wolves United, Ile de France, The South Pacific Special Forces, the Imperial Army of The Land of Kings and Emperors, the Imperial Navy of The Kingdom of Great Britain, the Royal Albion Legion, the Europeian Republican Navy, the Peoples' Revolutionary Armed Forces of The Communist Bloc, the Vikings of Funen, and the Mafia of Equinox.

We look forward to working with you in the future.

Victory In The West Pacific!
Image

Thanks to the brave, courageous, and physically attractive actions of Lt. We Are Not The NSA and Cpl. Shadoke, DEN has conquered one of the fabled game created regions, The West Pacific, and have taken possession of all their chocolate! Thanks to the WA Delegate, United RussoAsia switching sides, we have successfully taken over the region with no resistance! The natives of the region currently cower behind the delusion that it was all a joke, yet the DEN flag still flies over their conquered region!

These three brave raiders triple handedly accomplished their stealth raid, which took minutes upon minutes of planning to orchestrate. The raid was so secret that one of the raiders was not even aware that he was a raider, and the other two raiders didn't even know the op was going on until a few minutes beforehand. Now that's what I call opsec!

Rest assured that this raid report is 100% accurate, and is totally not leaving any details out. Do not research the claims made in this thread because spoiler alert: they are all true. Just accept the DEN occupation and endorse We Are Not The IRS, because there is no point in resisting. Did I mention how physically attractive and intelligent the participants in this raid were? Yes? Good, just checking, although I probably didn't need to mention it, since it is a well known fact.


In case you don't believe me, here are some completely unbiased quotes proving that this was a raid:
