Oh I can recognize tupe. I just can't recognize their random puppets

Tupe uses K-pop artists as their flag and in defending, so its pretty sad.

It's sad if I cannot recognize every set of puppets based on their flags even if it's someone I literally never interact with, got it.

Because, just like seeing a jump on the NPO on New Year's Eve, most of us won't be seeing a naked lady that night.

The logo is pretty, though.

I think the odds are better for the jump than the naked lady. :(

We had a fun little training session tonight. 20 people, most of which had never jumped before, showed up to their first military operation ever, and did great! Training operations will continue until New Year's Eve, with targets ranging from St Abbaddon to St Abbaddon.

I never saw it until I saw this post, but now I cannot unsee it.

Why must NS corrupt these things? I looked at that logo a hundred times without seeing anything, I even couldn't see it after they said it looked like that. Really shows you what shading the subject can do to something.

Was it 20? Seemed closer to 17. Not that either number makes any difference.

I may have miscounted.

Of course, I only counted 6 that were WA. So if we take your number of 18 and just speculate that each player also jumped two puppets, well, you get the picture...

All 21 nations that jumped were in the World Assembly. Some resigned from the WA after the jump and put their WA on other nations. This is what's called "switching," a term familiar to those of us who didn't peak sometime when George W. Bush was still President of the United States.

In other news, when were you appointed Consul of the Pacific, and why aren't you a Regional Officer like the other Senators?
