Thought of them as a pretty darn interesting take on Russia, and perhaps the world of Slavic nations as a whole. Of course, after a while and reading more then I knew what it was all about. I mean, it is still very interesting and captivating, but yes, I thought they were on Earth and the like, whoops.

And yes, I thought you are a dude!

when I first saw their nations name I instantly gravitated towards the "Valentine" part of the name, and initially thought it would be a nation that was just perpetually Valentines day. I'm kinda glad I was wrong.

I remember first seeing Cavirfi and back then I believe the sig mentioned that Crabaiaia got DEAT'd and my first reaction was "Wait, Crabaiaia's dead?" and then I heard them mention they were atoning for past misdeeds and my second thought was "Wait, what went down?" Needless to say I was quite confused.

First tought they would be something like a PMT/Early FT militarized group. Not too far from reality, except the tech level and the fact that I never dreamed of the motivations they claim (overthrowing the creator deity is pretty original ngl).

So, I've already said my first impression of Val, so I suppose I'll do my second to keep the thread alive and keep you from being stuck. Anyways, I suppose that after thinking "hey, this Val fella seems pretty sweet!", I ended up clicking on the spoiler in your sig, and I was immediately taken aback by how massive it was. I mean, that very clearly wasn't 800 characters! Of course, I later learned that that was because text in a spoiler is most of the time not considered by the char checker, but still- it was a bit of a surprise to see that much text and that much color, yeah?

Well, I'd say my first impression was rather tame in all honesty in regards to the nation itself. So, the one thing that instantly struck me at first is that I felt it was somewhat familiar in concept to a game called Six Ages: Ride like the Wind. A storybook strategy game of sorts. If you haven't heard of it, I think you'll very much enjoy the foundation of the story behind Six Ages, not ot undermine your own work of course. Your lore is miles ahead a small indie game like Six Ages but I feel like you might appreciate the aesthetics because that's what Kiu Ghesik first reminded me off.

So the very, very first impression I had and thought on this nation was being a crossover or a spin-off of Bloodshade and Ambrosia in terms of lore and character. Of course, it was something different when I found out, but nothing wrong with that. It's all good! ^^ My first thought was "Oh hey, is this if Ambrosia went to war more often?"

As an user, that was over years ago, and I thought you were a woman, that's a first. Then I sort of thought you are another older nation's puppet.

At first I thought it was going to be a meme nation, in all honesty. Most NS nations that take place in the Balkans (bar Greek/Turk wanks) are usually such. However, then I was admittedly surprised when it turned out to not be a meme-y Balkan nation but actually quite a detailed exhibition of horror and warfare. I mean, sure, there are pockets of non-aristocratic resistance. But a country where the major factions are a feudal military autocracy and a legion of presumable war criminals digging their way to perhaps a literal hell sprinkled in with raiders and bandits, you know something went wrong. And the fact this all took place in Albania just blew me away.

All in all, my first impression was not at all what the nation was actually like.

Well, I guess that they appeared to be an okay player who follows the forum etiquette but my first impression remained that they are not really my kind of nation, both aesthetically and narratively, and when I checked first time the factbooks were quite barebone.
Arpent de Niege (Monegasque Republic)
Setting: 1926 (PT/FanT)

After the Monaco Succession Crisis of 1918 ended up with the Grimaldi being exiled from Monaco and the microstate being taken over by pro-French politicians, lobbyists, businessmen, Sicilian mafia and odd string of cultists, the little country on Cote d'Azur now becomes hotbed of excesses and degeneracies that rivals Weimar Republic. Now a gambling table for the struggle of power between multiple factions, in a state where money equals power and vice versa -- both in this life and the next. Major influence here.

Really fun to read thru their factbooks, realistic (aside from the occult stuff obviously) alt-history "slice-of-life" nations are some of my favorite kind of nations on this site. Love it's layered multi-facetiousness too, with it's politics & history having a sort of nihilistic (and frankly realistic) marionette-esque "the house always wins" feel to it

NS stats are surprisingly pretty accurate
