Defender imperialists? And who, oh authority on all labels, are these supposed defender imperialists? Is it me who'd been a contributing native of Lazarus since 2013 until people like Evil Wolf and Funk who, in their greed and arrogance, decided I was no longer allowed to be a native unless I surrendered my free will and fell in line like a good little subject? Are they the other longtime natives that Evil Wolf and Funk saw fit to ban so as to cement their position in-game? You'll find that even I honestly didn't care what Lazarus' military alignment was. I even said so on the forum for The Celestial Union when we discussed that exact topic.

Take your time when you respond. I know you love spouting the propaganda LWU is feeding you.

Will defenders finally lead a successful liberation that will return Lazarus to being the sister region of the Rejected Realms under the Celestial Union once again?


So basically you guys are saying "Defender Imperalism is a lie" while later asking Defenders to "liberate" Lazarus from the Khanate, put it under a dead Defender puppet government that even TSP doesn't support anymore, and force it to be friends with TRR without any input from Lazarus itself.

LOLWUT.

Replying on my phone so this might look a little messy. I think it's needless to say that I had proven in the article through my premises that a liberation is not the same as a raider occupation in this case as it is a response to a coup. That is beyond reasonable doubt to any reasonable person.

Hence, it is also needless to say your reply is not reasonable, which is supported by your conclusion, which at best is a joke, "LOLWUT". I don't know what to say to you other than try reading the article again but slower this time. Good night from me, have a great day all. :)

It was meant as a reply to Souls ;)
Any decent person would allow people to make up new terminology, which is the exact opposite of what I was arguing for in the article. Conclusion? If you wish to think I'm a bad person, but do so through this line of logic, then if you are a raider you accept that you too are a bad person. We're going down together! ;)

CoS is making headway with the notion of bringing back TRT Radio, all we have left to do is write a script :)

RRA Recruitment Poster Competition Update

Postby Glacikaldr » Fri Mar 23, 2018 8:42 am

A quick little update on the RRA Recruitment Poster Competition. The original article announcing the competition states that the winner will be announced by the end of March, however upon further consultation - and in the hope of getting more submissions - the winner for the competition will be announced on RRA Day, a regional holiday in the Rejected Times celebrated on the 28th of May. This will - or at least may - mean that your poster will not be featured in Issue XLIV if you win, which is the issue that TRT's Staff hopes to release by early May. Instead, the poster will be featured in the winning announcement and during RRA Day festivities.

This means that the second paragraph of the original article should be read as the following:
"The competition will be run until RRA Day on the 28th of May, with winners being declared over on the NationStates Gameplay subforum in TRT's thread on the day alongside their poster(s). Submissions should be sent via telegram to TRR's Media Officer, Glacikaldr, preferably in the format of a gyazo or imgur link."

The original article can be accessed here.

Lazarus Reborn: Undead Have Flatlined
NEWS | WRITTEN BY Senior Journalist Marilyn Manson Freaks | EDITED BY Senior Reporter Glacikaldr

Image
Imki's overthrowing of the Undead mutt, Evil Wolf, as visualised by Intern Snow Tromia.

Recent events in Lazarus have sent the gameplay community into a odd mix of shock, intrigue, and joy. On April 22nd, during minor update, Imki (Imkiville) banjected Killer Kitty, also known as Evil Wolf, from the region and unappointed all of regional officers from the mutt raider organisation, LWU.

See, Imki had more endorsements so she became the Delegate of Lazarus during the update. Imki later changed the flag to a bold symbol of chaos. The flag chosen was simple; it is the word Lazarus with an anarchist "A" in the middle. The WFE now mentions how Lazarus was called a Warzone, which we attribute to the NPO senator, Pergamon: Imki planned to recognise that. She now sits as "Anarqueen" of "Warzone Lazarus", with a rapidly growing endorsement count of around 240, but the ban list has been cleared to ensure there will be anarchy beneath her.

With this promise of chaos, there are those among us that believe she's not going to stay as Delegate nor that she ever intended to. Instead, those in question believe she's set this up as a race for the delegacy, which many are participating in. Adytus and Minineenee are two nations of note that are currently fighting for the delegacy, with 135 and 147 endorsements respectively.

The Rejected Realms (TRR), upon enquiring its allies in the Celestial Union of Lazarus for comment, gave the following after internal consultation: "We're glad to see Lazarene natives unbanned and many of us are relieved to be coming home. Our aspirations are for a free and independent Lazarus in line with the wishes of natives, not foreign regions. For now, we are supporting Imki to ensure the region does not fall back to the foreign groups that caused this in the first place. However, we are eagerly anticipating a transition to native governance."

Nevertheless, this marks the day when the tyrannical regulations on the Celestial Union's space port are no more. Whatever happens, we hope TRR can have its sister sinker back!

Furthermore, TRR's Delegate, Catalyse, released a statement in favour of Imki's action in Lazarus, which can be found here.

In memory of the Undead Dominion of Wolfists or whatever amalgamation of names you wish to give the temporary raider occupation of Lazarus, we will now celebrate the end of the mutt-rule in Lazarus through recognising our two favourite memes that birthed from the ordeal!

I'm disappointed that Adytus and Minineenee are getting brought up as contenders for delegate without any mention of the LKE/Balder/TWP support behind them.

Research was done by MM, however - as per my end - I was not aware of who was supporting who. I imagine loyalties are changing rapidly at the moment for most other foreign interests, but I believe CU's comment highlights how TRR - as per our alliance with the CU - wants Lazarenes to have a rule of law independent of foreign influence.

I cannot speak for MM or TRR, but I find it both disturbing and disappointing that a fellow sinker, namely Balder, has already chosen a side to stand on before it would reasonably be possible to gauge popular Lazarene opinion. Balder has done nothing as of late to make me look more favourably upon them: breaking their relations with TRR just solidified my negative opinion on them. I hope I personally can work with Balder to improve that situation, as I believe I have some minimal sway that can help restore pan-sinker relations in the future.

Edit: Would it of been better if Adytus and Minineenee were not mentioned? They're third and second highest respectively in terms of endorsements so that's why I believe MM mentioned them.

I'm honestly pretty disappointed in everyone at this point.

Looking at their endorsers it appears Imkiville has endorsers from NPO and some TEP, Adytus has LKE, and Minineenee (Neenee) has LKE and TEP.

Adytus and Neenee both have Balder endorsements as well. Imki has NPO, TEP, TSP, TWP, Osiris, TRR, and some UCRs as well, I think.

Just don't want anyone to forget who stood where.

I think NSGP is moving in a direction where that coalition endorsing Imki makes sense...
