This event obviously isn't about being inclusive or diverse, and it obviously isn't open to people of all ideologies and beliefs (as it falsely claims). It isn't even about gay pride. (Just look at the two flags featured in the event's logo.) It's about Europeia, like always.



Bit late to the party - Several major members of Gay were involve with the event & we would gladly consider co-hosting any future pride events




Congratulations to Sopo for winning the election.
Personally I'm more curious as to what Jay will accomplish as culture minister (..considering the above post by CD)


Hopefully more Pride events. I'd attend happily.

The Europeian Republic Navy was pushed back into the spotlight with the release of Calvin Coolidge as Grand Admiral to be replaced by Writinglegend. In his nomination hearing, Writinglegend stressed the importance of bringing in incentives for members joining the Navy and bringing much needed activity back into Europeia’s military. To cover his nomination and career as Grand Admiral as well as his time as IJCC Chairman, Vlaska sat down with the now Grand Admiral for an interview.


Taking his place as IJCC Chairman, Rach, known worldwide as Solorni, was appointed by the voting members of the IJCC. Her appointment received much support from the Europeian population who saw her as a natural choice for the role given her experience in Balder. To gain more insight on her experience and the IJCC as a whole, we had Olde Delaware provide an opinion piece on the future of the IJCC under Solorni.


Interview with a Legend


Interview By: Vlaska


The EECT had a sitdown with former chair of IJCC (Independent Joint Command Coalition) and current Grand Admiral Writinglegend to talk about the situation with Europeian Republican Navy and its cooperation with our allies within the IJCC as well as general situation within the ERN itself.


Vlaska: What do you perceive to be the biggest advantage of the IJCC?


Writinglegend: The main advantage of the Independent Joint Command Coalition is we better position ourselves in a more UCR-hostile geopolitically world. In military gameplay, numbers are everything. Through working with The Land of Kings and Emperors and Balder, we enable ourselves to increase our collective power and identity due to an overall increase in forces. More forces on the battlefield increases our military influence abroad. The Independent Joint Command Coalition allows us to do just that.


Vlaska: What, if anything would you change about the way IJCC operates?


Writinglegend: The main change that I would make is the internal division of command within the IJCC. Right now, we operate under the basis of Division Commanders who are in charge of each division of the IJCC. Divisions include the Europeian, Balder, and The Land of Kings and Emperors military respectively. The past two months have shown that such a command system is ineffective, especially with such an unwieldy amount of duties needed to be accomplish. Instead, we should be focusing on providing objective-specific positions, such as a commander for training and a commander for update operations, in order to better use our man-power.


Vlaska: Do you feel that you have accomplished everything you set out to in your chairmanship?


Writinglegend: I don't think any leader ever accomplishes everything they wish to in a leadership position, and there are always points of reflection where you wish you could have gone on a separate route than the road taken. But I am happy with what we accomplished, although more could have absolutely been done.


Vlaska: What do you think about your successor to the position, namely Rach/Solorni?


Writinglegend: I think Rach is an excellent successor and will do well in the role. She has certainly shown her immense talents in other high-stakes positions before, and this time will be no different. Everyone should be looking forward to the great things the IJCC will accomplish under her leadership.


Vlaska: You are now appointed to be the current Grand Admiral, how many times have you served in this capacity?


Writinglegend: I believe this would be my sixth term as Grand Admiral, but someone feel free to correct me.


Vlaska: What do you think the Europeian Republican Navy needs to focus on the most?


Writinglegend: Recruitment. The numbers in our force are low, and we realistically cannot be an influential military partner until that is brought up. With low turnout in piling and update operations, we are no longer an attractive option for high-stake operations. The key to change this is running an aggressive bottom-to-top recruitment campaign through all mediums, and then better engaging those who do join to turn their application into movement towards operational activity.


Vlaska: What is your policy regarding triggering seminars and training successors to the Grand Admiral position?


Writinglegend: Triggering seminars remain a stable addition to our training regimen to prepare our sailors for leadership in the Europeian Republican Navy, but they cannot and should not be the only medium for training available mainly due to the large time gap in between seminars that are run. We need to do a better job at supplementing triggering seminars with other identifiable avenues for training in operational command.


Vlaska: Thank you for your time.


Writinglegend: Not a problem! Thank you for the opportunity to be interviewed. I look forward to renewing my participation in the Europeian Executive after my rather brief departure.


IJCC gets a Spark


Written By: Olde Delaware


Solorni, more commonly known as Rach here in Europeia has been appointed the 2nd Chairperson of the IJCC, replacing the esteemed WritingLegend who resigned the position to take the role of Grand Admiral after his nomination passed the Senate late last week. The current Delegate of Balder and Europeian Associate Justice, Solorni comes into the position with a bevy of military experience having well over 8 years of command experience including a term as Grand Admiral and time as the head of the Jomsvikings of Balder. When reached by the EECT for comment, the new Chair indicated that she intended to work on "strengthening the organization's communications skills and work toward larger operations in the future."


The announcement to replace the Chair was well received by the citizens of Europeia with many including sitting Senators Comrade Prim, GraVandius, JayDee, and HEM voicing their support for Solorni. As only the second ever chair of the IJCC, Solorni comes into a job that is still overcoming an image crisis left in the wake of the Osiris Affair. The result of which saw the now former chair and current Grand Admiral, Writinglegend receive several substantial questions from the Senate on but the now sitting Grand Admiral stressing that the incident was "an outlier".


Over the years, Europeia has been able to enjoy a wide array of military experience from its citizens. From the famed Onderkelkia and North East Somerset to up and comers such as former Grand Admiral Rachael Archie. By positioning an expert like Writinglegend and full utilizing Solorni to her potential, Europeia is putting the NS world on notice that it is placing a stronger emphasis on the military as it prepares to reform.[/hr][/hr]

Interesting that half this article is about how great WritingLegend is, y'know, after the whole Osiris incident.

Also interesting that they were rewarded (if we can call it that) with Grand Admiral after that incident.

Yeah, he might be a legend at writing, but his military abilities and common sense communication skills seem to be lacking, The whole interview frankly reads as an attempt to whitewash WL and paint him in a far more positive light than he has earned.

Though Writinglegend has received an outsized portion of the blame for what happened between the IJCC and Osiris, he has more than demonstrated across his years in this game that he is a competent leader, military and otherwise. One mistake amidst a number of miscommunications does not negate that record. I have personally worked with WL since he first joined Europeia in 2014, and he has been a force in Europeia ever since. From revitalizing the Navy to transforming the ministry of culture to his many terms as president, anyone who has worked with WL knows his capabilities. I'm not interested in rehashing the IJCC/Osiris affair, but Writinglegend is our Grand Admiral because of his long track record of success in Europeia and because I trust him.

Look at you already trying to tone down what a mess that was.

Trust aside the decision is politically questionable. Looks like you're rewarding him for causing a mess, or at least are callous about said mess. And he did cause it -- not sure how you can claim his "portion of the blame" was outsized.

I will admit though -- nothing you guys did or have done was as ridiculously bad as the actions of a certain other member of the IJCC. So you've got that going for you at least

Ok to be real, nobody in this game goes more than a month without fucking up. None of us would have any positions if we were barred from them for doing something stupid lmao.

Also, not directly responding to Consular, but if I were looking to whitewash Europeia and our record, I wouldn't have published a whole foreign update talking about the IJCC and Writinglegend lol. I would write up a column, written by me, about how great we are.

In other news!! The Europeian Letter is actually looking for non-Europeian nationals to interview for our article. (Maybe even noted adversaries??) Let me know if you're interested.

Also worth noting, the 1 year anniversary of Commend Euro recently passed by, and I appeared on EBC Radio for the occasion :blush:

I know this is hard to believe, but it's actually been nearly two months since the event played out on NSGP and closer to three months since the event itself.

People who are naturally critics of Europeia (of which there are regrettably a few :P ) are going to give this event outsized importance when evaluating our region, but the whole thing is over and has been over for a while.

Call for Declaration of War Against the New Pacific Order

Postby Ambrella » Thu Nov 22, 2018 10:06 pm

Call for Declaration of War Against the New Pacific Order


Europeia has not issued a declaration of war since 2009, nearly 10 years ago. In many ways, NationStates is not suited to war and prolonged conflict. How one wins and one loses is oft defined by writers of history rather than meaningful, tangible victories. Success is often difficult to grasp, as wars are fought by the pen as much as they are by the sword.

Why, then, would a well-established, even-keeled, and open-minded region such as ours ever go to war? Because we are gravely threatened by something. Not an army marching to our doorstep, but an existential threat. Because at the very core of our enemy is an ideology that demeans our stature as a region and questions our very right to exist, let alone co-exist

Francoism dictates the superiority of Game Created Regions, the inferiority of User Created Regions, and the necessary dichotomy between members of the two: feederites and userites. Yet this has not stopped the New Pacific Order from subjugating the region of St. Abbaddon, which we recently attempted to free and return to native nation, Topid, alongside our friends and allies. Nor has it stopped the New Pacific Order from attempting to subjugate fellow GCRs, including seizing the delegacy of Lazarus and conducting espionage against The North Pacific and the Black Hawks. Just tonight, we received word that two long-time members of Osiris were actually pseudonyms for NPO leaders. This consistent level of subversion, both of GCRs and UCRs, is unacceptable.

We have tolerated and even attempted to find common ground with The Pacific over the years, but the NPO has made it clear that they cannot peacefully coexist with Europeia in their declaration of war against The Black Hawks, “Henceforth, the New Pacific Order will actively conduct military operations against TBH and its interests. However, the Order is not a defender organization; raider organizations that refuses [sic] to cooperate with TBH will not be opposed by us in their R/D [Raid/Defend] operations.” As The Black Hawks are one of Europeia’s closest military partners, we fall squarely into the New Pacific Order’s threat of hostility. We will not tolerate it, and we will respond in kind.

Therefore, I am formally seeking a Declaration of War from the Europeian Senate against The Pacific, a declaration which will enshrine in our region what we already know to be true: that the New Pacific Order and its dangerous ideology is a threat to not only our community and our fundamental values but to regions of all stripes; and action must be taken to counter their aggression. Europeia will always stand for freedom, democracy, and equality, and today that means standing firmly and clearly against an enemy that detests all three.
