I’ll admit that I’m surprised to hear that. I’m glad there’s new activity being spurned there. Hopefully the competition from AWP supersedes TGW as the face of defending.

Welcome back BT.

Nice to see the peanut gallery is as ignorant as ever to operations that don’t get directly reported to them.

But Tim, if it didn't happen in a gameplay thread did it even happen?

Nakari made this


This post is going to look remarkably similar to a post I made only July 7th, 2016.

Firstly, I would like to congratulate Nakari on their promotion to Warden-Constable.

I would also like to congratulate X Arms on their promotion to First Guardian.

Some Interesting Things On the Way


Grey Warden Roleplay
The Order of the Grey Wardens will be starting a National Roleplay. We are still deciding many of the factors in starting this roleplay, but we're totally doing it, so make sure to keep your eye on it. I'm thinking of establishing some sort of federal regional government, so we can have fun debating politics on top of regular diplomacy. We are currently deciding whether or not we will be using an offsite forum.

Darkspawn Kill Points
The Darkspawn Kill Points (DKP) system will serve as a silly distraction from the often serious nature of our cause. Wardens will be awarded and lose points at the discretion and whims of their Commanding Officers. No warden may affect the points of those above their rank up to Commander. Those ranked Commander and above are free to meddle with one other's points as they please. Points will be haphazardly tracked and Wardens will reap the benefits or pitfalls of their DKP allocation in a bizarre ceremony at the end of each month.* Non-Wardens can opt-into the game.

With that, the first sets of points:

Benevolent Thomas (me): +40
Nakari: +35
Roavin: +20
Sir Merlin: +30
Haku: +20
Lyna Mahariel: +10
Vincent Drake: +25
Indo-Malaysia: +5
Pyrohy: +10
Gacrux: +5
X Arms: +5
pan²thalasso: +5


Sir Merlin: +10
Roavin: +15
Nakari: +15
Haku: +5


Benevolent Thomas (me): +15
X Arms: +10
Sir Merlin: +10
Pyrohy: +10
Nakari: +5
Vincent Drake: +25
Haku: +50


Numero Capitan: +25 For Update Prowess
+15 For Exemplary Leadership
Frattastan: +30 For Update Prowess
+30 For Tactical Prowess
Arafella: +20 For Update Prowess
Scott: +10 For Update Prowess
Matthew: +15 For Update Prowess
p.rata: +10 For Update Prowess
Penguin: +5 For Update Prowess
Miravana: +20 For Update Prowess
Guy: +5 For Update Prowess
phoenixofthesun: +5 For Update Prowess
Knight Rider: +5 For Update Prowess
Kuriko: +5 For Exemplary Leadership
+10 For Tactical Prowess
Karputsk: +10 For Exemplary Leadership
Twobagger: +15 For Tactical Genius


*Benefits entail a prominent masking in the TGW Discord and being featured on the TGW region page.

If it's 2016, I should be Pharaoh of Osiris again and exceedingly annoying to a large number of people. Someone make this happen.

But also, great to see BT back as First Warden!

Welcome to the GOAT MARKET.

Image


The Goat Market opens twice a day, exhibiting the finest goats of NationStates. You may peruse our goat wares, pet our goats, or simply observe their goaty games.

Yesterday, sir slash ma'am, we had a wonderful goat exhibition! Such a shame you missed it. Some of the less well-trained goats got out, you see, and tried to force their way into a barn full of grain! Ah, but you see these sweet goats here? These goats went and chased the others, defending the storehouse. After that, they even went around and fixed up everything that previous goat rampages had damaged, nudging knocked-over stalls back into their place with their sweet little noses! Such precious goats.




And today's goat show - oh, what a treat! The feral goats had barricaded themselves inside a smaller storehouse. But with a sudden bleat, these wonderful goats here got into a formation, bundling together into a veritable phalanx! Another bleat, and they charged, their horns pointing straight ahead. The feral goats kicked out with their gnarled hooves but they could not withstand the charge. These wonderful goats poured in and corralled the feral goats, herding them back to their paddocks.

Ah, but now you must be wanting to see our goats! Let me show you to their stalls. Many are too valuable to sell, but you can offer a price, if you wish. We have a great selection of different breeds of goat, for example:

The Grey Ferelden Goat - a breed of occasionally aggressive temper, but strong resolve
Image

Benevolent Thomas
Haku
Lyna Mahariel
Nakari (half Grey Ferelden, half Southern Curly)
Roavin (half Grey Ferelden, half Southern Curly)
Sir Merlin
Vincent Drake

The Rejected Horned Goat - despite its name, a friendly, intelligent goat

Image

Bormiar
Catalyse
Falastur
frattastan
Karp
Kyorgia
Sarah

The Southern Curly Goat - a goat originating from the southern archipelago, renowned for its llama-like wool

Image

Arafella
Mira
Nagaland
Warrior (half Southern Curly, half Free Nations goat)

Assorted other breeds

Image

Matthew (Hartfelden Highlands goat)
Bobberino (Northern Blue goat)
Rom (Northern Blue goat)
Nuca (AWP-Augustine goat)

Some Thousand Islander goats were also involved in the merriment - however, they are notoriously shy and not available for sale - I hope you understand.


Ah, you want to see the feral goats, you say? Please - I'm not sure you know what you are saying. They are not a sight for sensitive eyes. Well - if you are sure.

Image

I'm sorry you had to see that. We did warn you.

the "feral" goat pictured is actually a Damascus Goat and fetches up to $67,000 USD due to it producing cashmere fibers, excellent quality of meat, and high end quality of milk. Breeders use this goats to help increase the production of milk and increase the quality of the milk in other goats.

Awesome Report Warden Nakari. It's nice to see some good, clean fun on NS for a change.

Bobberino is a Northern Blue goat that got rejected by his herd. I doubt you could get a good price on him.
