Editorial:
LAZARUS SURVIVES N-DAY
By New Rogernomics
Image

Lazarus experienced nuclear Armageddon, before an arms control treaty could be reached through diplomatic channels. Fortunately Lazarus avoided a post-Apocalyptic nightmare to the disappointment of many doomsday cultists. While Lazarus did not have an internal war between Wolfists and Communists/Socialists this N-Day, it did join the fellow regions of Osiris, The West Pacific, Gay, Hartfelden, and Caer Sidi, in the Pirates of the Nile faction. Congrats to the Pirates of the Nile for a successful fight, and our friends in UPPERCUT who became the reigning champions.

NEW POLITICAL APPOINTMENTS
By New Rogernomics

Cormac resigned as Speaker of the Assembly, and has been replaced by McChimp, so best of luck to Cormac in what he plans to do next, and to McChimp in his new career as Assembly Speaker. In other news, Imaginary was appointed as the Minister of Inter-Regional Relations, Killer Kitty (otherwise known as Evil Wolf) has been appointed Recruitment & Outreach Minister, and New Rogernomics has been appointed as the Media & Events Minister. Lastly, there has been a more recent appointment of TempestShadow as the Deputy Speaker of the Assembly, so best of luck also to TempestShadow in that new role.

Commentary:
IMAGINARY, A VERY REAL INFILTRATOR
By Amerion
Image

Canary Wharf — In a stunning admission, Imaginary publicly came out as a long time infiltrator of the Undead Dominion of Lazarus.

In what was perhaps the greatest gameplay upheaval of 2017, the Celestial Union of Lazarus dissolved into civil war when then Sovereign Funkadelia staged a coup and installed the Undead Dominion. Over the course of two months, belligerents on both sides made their case before the World Assembly and the gameplay community at-large, while simultaneously attempting to capture or maintain the Delegacy.

Imaginary underscored his displeasure at these events and states that it was his steadfast resolve to remove Funkadelia from power which led him to join the Dominion under false pretences. Owing to his unknown background, he was able to maintain this facade for the course of the Dominion’s short-lived history.

In early 2018, the Dominion transitioned to the Khanate of Lazarus under the control of Lone Wolves United and was controversially removed in an internal coup by Imki, now Delegate of Lazarus. The new Delegate was not immediately trusted by all residents, as Imaginary himself notes.

‘When Imki took over I didn't know her so I decided to remain incognito’, Imaginary recalls, ‘until I could trust that she wasn't going to use the region in the same way Funk and co. did.’

The revelation of this deception was greeted with understanding. Roavin, himself a seasoned game-player, testified ‘Just from a player's perspective, there's nothing wrong with infiltration - it's an absolutely valid form of playing the game, and in a way, credit to you for being able to successfully do it for a year.’

As to his future, Imaginary said it was up to Lazarus whether it would accept him after his misconduct. The former member of the Dominion expressed hope that he could ‘continue to draw Tubbius pics and hang as an ambassador in our embassies, and most importantly be a part of the region's current community, which I have fallen in love with.’

Opinion:
TRIBUTE TO NEW ROGERNOMICS
By Amerion
Image

On the 2nd of September, Delegate Imki announced her nominations for Cabinet Ministers. In the week that followed, New Rogernomics, Imaginary, and Killer Kitty were confirmed by the Assembly to the postings of Media and Events, Interregional Relations, and Recruitment and Outreach, respectively.

And while there is much to be said of their efforts, or rather, lack thereof in an instance or two, I believe the community as a whole can and should come together in agreement that New Rogernomics is worthy of our highest commendation.

At risk of inserting my head into his bottom, I will note his smooth transition from a member of the Council of Natives to a Cabinet Minister, a portfolio which he has shown great dedication to; having authored all but one of the articles in the September issue of the Lazarene Gazette, a publication which he took it on himself, at nobody’s behest and at no one’s pressure, to organise, write for, publish, and distribute. What is more astounding is that while he has been serving this region in a ministerial capacity, he has also all but single-handedly provided administration for the forum. It should come to no surprise to any Lazarene that this individual is responsible for the continual provision of forum-services.

For this and so much more, I would like to express, on behalf of Lazarus if I may, our gratitude to New Rogernomics for his service.

The Lazarene Foreign Update - Oct 2018

Postby Lazarus IR Office » Sat Oct 13, 2018 12:14 pm

Image


Government

Delegate: Imkiville
Vice Delegate: Treadwellia



Court Justices: Lazarene Roavin, D3-RP5, SheepShape



Ministers

Media and Events: New Rogernomics
Assistant Minister of M&E: Canton Empire
Interregional Relations: Your Imaginary Friend
Recruitment and Outreach: Killer Kitty



Speaker: McChimp
Deputy Speaker: TempestShadow


Before

In the early months of 2018, Lazarus was controlled by the Undead Dominion, led by Funkadelia. Power peacefully transitioned to the Wolfist Khanate when Aleister/Lamb became delegate. On April 22nd Imki, a high-ranking offical in the Khanate, became delegate, replacing Killer Kitty, and ending the Khanate's hold on the region. For a week, Lazarus was in anarchy. Many who had not participated in the region since Funk's institution of the Undead Dominion of Lazarus returned, interested in what kind of place the new Laz would be.

After Anarchy Week, Imki announced the Peacekeeper Agreement, a document signed by her and executives in the governments of TP, TSP, TRR, Osiris, TEP, and TWP, that officialized the creation of a Constitutional Convention (ConCon), run by a group of former Lazarene Delegates, to create a blueprint for the region's next government.

Amid rising tensions about who should be included in the ConCon and widespread dissatisfaction with the document the ConCon had produced, Imki dissolved the Peacekeeper Agreement and declared Mandate 12 the law of Lazarus.

Now

Over the last few months, Imki has slowly been organizing the new government of Lazarus; first appointing Treadwellia and Cormac as Vice Delegate and Speaker respectively; Roavin, Devi, and Sheepshape as Court Justices; New Rogernomics, Imaginary, and Killer Kitty as Ministers of Media and Events, Interregional Relations, and Recruitment and Outreach respectively; and most recently, upon the resignation of Cormac, McChimp as Speaker.

The community of Lazarus has calmed down a lot since the excitements of earlier in the year, yet the region's RMB, forums, and Discord continue to maintain steady activity levels. Lazarus's RMB conversation consists predominantly of greeting recently refounded nations, personalized roleplaying, and chill chatting; the forums tend to be used for more official things like government announcements, discussing legislation, signing up for jobs, and yknow, spam; and the Lazarus Discord is a convenient place for the community to relax with each other and foreign friends in real-time.



Media and Events

The Ministry of Media and Events has gotten some really cool stuff going in the region. The Lazarene Gazette, a long-time part of Lazarus's culture, is once more a living newspaper, and a Grand Re-Opening Festival is being held on the off-site forums (featuring fun things like a Wolfist v. "La Resistance" game).

New Rogernomics has appointed Canton Empire as Assistant Minister of Media and Events to assist him with his job. Canton is currently organizing an At-War game to help Lazarus and Osiris have fun together, and recently set up a Q&A for Imki on Lazarus's most recent civil war.

Interregional Relations

The Ministry of Interregional Relations has been doing well recently. Many in Lazarus who are interested in diplomacy and want to help out the new government have joined the ambassador team, which has already been able to assign a unique Lazarene to represent Lazarus abroad in each of its GCR embassies. A forum embassy system has also been set up on the off-site forums for regions that would like to have an official presence in Lazarus.

The MoIR has also been organizing interregional mini-events such as VC concerts and scribbl.io games to help the community of Lazarus get to know those of its embassies. These haven't all been great successes, but the Ministry will continue to look for ways to engage more with Lazarus's friends abroad.

Mm. Not funny.

So much for Lazarus being neutral I guess? What good does this serve? Like, okay, if you're going to raid the region for the lulz, then just tag it. Go off. But why are you kicking out the natives? Why would you need to hold the region at all? EW's not there to protect his region or his natives and they didn't do anything wrong. I would normally be the last person in the world to complain about a hold, but Lazarus doesn't even do R/D. It looks to me like you're going out of your way to be a jerk just because you can. That's not a Lazarus I can support. That's not a Lazarus I will support. LWU has been an old friend to Osiris. We could not abide them when they were mistreating Lazarus, but we will not let them be mistreated in turn.
