[PASSED] Condemn Darkesia

Postby Xoriet » Thu Mar 28, 2019 12:52 pm

Second proposal time! So, I originally planned to Commend Darkesia in adherence with my original intent to recognize nations that are known but maybe not in their full capacity and haven't been fully acknowledged by the community in regards to their history, but was asked to make it a Condemnation instead. After interviews to collect information, I decided it could be done and wrote up the first draft.

As with last time, please offer any comments or suggestions to improve the quality of the proposal.



The Security Council;

Acknowledging that Darkesia has taken part in the world of NationStates for fourteen years, and during that time has done many things that would be considered Commendable.

Emphasizing that Darkesia has a history involving far less benevolent acts that have gone largely unremarked upon, something that should be corrected and noted by this Assembly. This history of manipulating foreign regions for the benefit of an egregiously notorious region should not be overlooked by the World Assembly body.

Beginning with the fact that Darkesia served as a Senator in the New Pacific Order during the tenures of BlackAdder goes Forth and Pierconium, repelling attempts at entering the region to work on liberating The Pacific from the New Pacific Order by the Alliance Defense Network and their other allies in their later days. Darkesia’s efforts further enabled the continuance of the New Pacific Order, an entity that now stands as twice Condemned by this Assembly.

Disturbed that some of Darkesia’s greatest works in Gatesville involved the initiation and execution of intelligence operations against other regions. Darkesia was inducted to the school of infiltration initially so that they might aid the defenders in their battles against the invaders of old. Instead, Darkesia turned these skills against their teachers and proceeded to use them for raiders and coupers in their future career, influencing other regions for ill by means of these abilities. A considerable amount of that influence was achieved under the banner of Gatesville.

Appalled that Darkesia has spent time engaged in subversive activities in the Feeders, supporting numerous operations by nations seeking to claim the Delegacy. Such activities include:

- Participation in and support of multiple coups of The North Pacific. One such coup was Pierconium's North Pacific Directorate. This was done under the banner of Gatesville.

- Spying on The West Pacific in 2008 to support Lots of Ants, another Gatesville national operative situated in the Delegacy. The leader of Darkesia was then granted complete control of the nation by its former masters before the end, leaving them in charge of the coup of The West Pacific.

- Supporting Empire’s coup of the East Pacific in late 2008. Darkesia, with Gatesville, aided Empire in their quest to hold the region against the will of its natives. Gatesville's support kept the natives from reclaiming the sovereignty of The East Pacific for many months.

Surprised by the fact that Darkesia, under the name SheWolf, served as a spy for the first Invaders region. SheWolf also was a member of the original incarnation of The Black Hawks and participated in numerous raids and occupations with their fellow Hawks.

Adding that, under the name The Edge of Night, Darkesia served as a minder for the original Illuminati, taking a leading role in a project intended to mold nations in a certain shape befitting the interests of the region. This intention was not in the best interests of the international community of NationStates.

Reiterating that Darkesia has a history of engaging in espionage, supported numerous coups and raids, has committed grave violations of regional sovereignty in regards to the international community, and thus is well deserving of a Condemnation.

Hereby Condemns Darkesia.

Darkesia was inducted to the school of infiltration initially so that they might aid the defenders in their battles against the invaders of old. Instead, Darkesia turned these skills against their teachers and proceeded to use them in support of those unlawfully seizing Delegacies of regions, influencing other regions for ill by means of these abilities. A considerable amount of that influence was achieved under the banner of Gatesville.

Disappointed that Darkesia unapologetically served as part of an infiltrating force in The North Pacific in their capacity of an operative of Gatesville during multiple coups of that region. One such coup was the North Pacific Directorate, executed by Pierconium, where Gatesville served as support. Efforts by Darkesia contributed to the perpetuation of several coups, the end result of which prolonged violations of regional sovereignty of the residents of The North Pacific by invading forces.

Shocked that Darkesia once served as a spy for Gatesville in The West Pacific. They were in the region in support of Lots of Ants: a nation that deceived the natives of the region as to their true identity and couped the region for Gatesville in early 2008 after an extended time of infiltration and maneuver. Darkesia later was granted custody of the nation Lots of Ants, leaving them in control of the region by means of leading said nation until the end of the coup, which was later exposed by Biyah.

Appalled that Darkesia, in the same note and also as an operative of Gatesville, was involved in the coup of The East Pacific in late 2008 by the infamous organization known across the world of NationStates as Empire. With Gatesville’s aid, Empire was able to continue to hold the region against liberations by the natives attempting to reclaim it from the invading force. Empire and Gatesville’s alliance held The East Pacific hostage until it was finally taken back by the natives in early 2009.

Surprised by the fact that Darkesia, under the name SheWolf, served as a spy for the first Invaders region. SheWolf also was a member of the original incarnation of The Black Hawks and participated in numerous raids and occupations with their fellow Hawks.

Adding that, under the name Edge of Night, Darkesia served as a minder for the original Illuminati, taking a leading role in a project intended to mold nations in a certain shape befitting the interests of the region. This intention was not in the best interests of the international community of NationStates.

Reiterating that Darkesia has a history of engaging in espionage, supported numerous coups and raids, has committed grave violations of regional sovereignty in regards to the international community, and thus is well deserving of a Condemnation.

Hereby Condemns Darkesia.

This was the North Pacific Directorate, I believe.

Other then that, this looks well-written.

Perhaps you should use another word or phrase in place of "coupers"? Being a bit nitpicky, but that's the only thing I see. Looks good otherwise.

I’d forgotten the Lots of Ants incident, though at the time I was one of the ones screaming for her removal as TWP’s Delegate.

First read through and it looks good. May I suggest breaking the paragraphs up a little though and possibly use some bullet points.

Ah, the bullet points. :p The only place I could think to do that is in relation to the consecutive feeder coup areas since they have something in common, or perhaps with SheWolf and Edge of Night. What do you think would be best?

Thanks for the input so far, everyone!

No, you should talk about how horrible chocolate is for your health and why Dark is promoting unhealthy eating, thus making the Condemnation more complete.

How can you go from commend to condemn, that easily?

This is the literal definition of trying to earn scout badges for how many proposals you can get run through the mill.

No, at least that's not how the players use is, the WA Security Council is literally used as a high-school popularity contest.

Obviously because people do enough to deserve either. If you’ve been in the game long enough, chances are you can deserve either badge. There are plenty of players who could qualify for either. If you can deserve both, you can choose which one you’d prefer to be recognized for.

Darkesia stole a card from me that I was bidding on.

...I mean, they actually just placed a much higher bid than I was capable of matching, but I am still sore about it.

Surely this is condemnable. You're welcome in advance for the help.

Hardly.

Second paragraph, “despite good acts” sounds... weird. That needs rewording.

Same paragraph, “acts that has gone” should be “acts that have gone”, and “largely unremarked upon” sounds klunky. That should be reworded too.

There’s likely more, but I can’t spend any more time on this, I need to go to work. Just take your time, Xoriet. It’s a condemnation, not a liberation, you have plenty of time to get it right.

Don't worry, not in a rush. I want to get it perfect before I actually submit anything. Let me work with that and see what I can get that will fit better.

Just to support how utterly evil Dark is and totally deserving of this Condemnation here are my rememberings of the Lots of Ants (LoA) incident.

LoA arrived in TWP either during Shasoria’s Delegacy or at the start of TAO’s. They made a very good impression with everyone and took over a number of roles within TWP’s government. Performed exceedingly well in these positions. By the end of TAO’s Delegacy there was really only one contender to succeed TAO and that was LoA.

After taking the Delegacy LoA just seemed to drop out and basically disappeared from view. This caused great consternation in the region with calls for them to resign. Biyah (who else) lead an unendorsement campaign which had the TWP Guardians (of which I was one) trying to stop Biyah while simultaneously getting LoA to resign. Eventually LoA stepped down and Eli (Wickedly Evil People) took over the Delegacy pro tem.

Eventually we found out that Dark was LoA and that we’d been well and truly played. For a long time there was debate within TWP on whether or not LoA was originally a separate person from Dark or whether they were Dark from the very beginning. Us old TWP hands are still not sure, which means it was a masterpiece of cunning and deception.

Truly an act worthy of inclusion in a Condemnation.
