[EASTER EGG] The Issue with Trading Cards

Postby Jutsa » Sun Apr 01, 2018 9:05 am

Title: The Issue with Trading Cards
The Issue: Trading Cards throughout Nationstates have been promoting gambling among our future generation. Administrators, concerned parents, and some other guy have come to your office asking you to do something.
Validity: Must have a trading card, gambling is illegal

Validity: Nation is not in the World Assembly
Option 1: "I can not believe you let this happen, @@LEADER@@!" shouts @@RANDOMNAME@@, holding a sign that reads "cards are evil and should be banned for the sake of human decency and salvation". "The World Assembly has gone too far! We can not allow these childish leaders to gamble with cards. You must ban them and publicly denounce them!"
[effect] postcards are banned

Validity: Nation is in the World Assembly
Option 2: "I can not believe you let this happen, @@LEADER@@!" shouts @@RANDOMNAME@@, holding a sign that reads "cards are evil and should be banned for the sake of human decency and salvation". "The World Assembly has gone too far! We can not allow these childish leaders to gamble with cards. You must ban them and publicly denounce them — by leaving the world assembly!"
[effect] postcards are banned

Option 3: "You sound like a loser who owns no cards," says Saluvatoniagoid Viola, forum administrator and avid card collector. "It's just some hardless fun that doesn't involve using real money. Maybe you want to collect a full region. Maybe you want to drive up the value of your own card. Maybe you want to fill the gaping void in your life with some kind of meaning, even if it's virtual card-based. I don't know. But I do know we have sweet cards!"
[effect] gambling is fine as long as it's not called gambling

Option 4: "This is military gameplay, short and simple and to the point!" says Ensign Vincent Soul, holding a suitcase full of cards. "These cards display information about our nation. We need to target as many people as possible from collecting our cards while at the same time collecting as many cards from others as we can. Put more funding into the military and my boys will pick up as many as we possibly can, and you'll have my full endorsement."
[effect] the military has a warehouse filled with 180,000 playing cards

Option 5: "You can do that just by looking on our website," reminds [DATA EXPUNGED] from the World Assembly. "Just go to https://www.nationstates.net and you'll even find a nation we've been tracking on suspicion of terrorism. Go ahead, take a look! In fact, to help with our services, how's about you give us all your records and passwords. We'll make your cards look way more awesome."
[effect] @@NAME@@ has been hacked for being a suspected terrorist

Option 6: "These things are useless," moans the random person that I mentioned earlier. "All the resources and money spent on making these... it's disgraceful. Go ahead and use them for something, like cleaning nails, or putting them in your bike to make it sound like a motorcycle."
[effect] @@LEADER@@'s coasters have national statistics printed on them


April Fools, everyone. :D

Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

Stunning! I do believe Option 2’s validity should be exclude the word ‘not’, though. :P

Well done! Is the repeated Option #1/#2 part of the joke?
I still can't believe that Brazil lost to Germany 1:7. Copy and paste onto your sig if you were alive when this happened.
