[PASSED] Commend Riemstagrad

Postby Westinor » Sun Mar 26, 2023 10:44 am

Hihihi! Another draft that has been in the works - Commend Riemstagrad! It's a bit more of a historic approach, but I just wanted to say thank you to Ballo, Blaat and Rav for being so helpful with research on that end!! Please leave any feedback, criticism, etc. - it's all greatly appreciated!
The Security Council,

Recognizing that while many have stood steadfast against the scourge of invaders that plagued countless defenseless regions in the long history of this world, only a few names symbolize such unwavering vigilance and passionate resistance against the forces of evil as [nation=Riemstagrad],

Looking upon Riemstagrad’s beginnings in [region=Belgium], a region that has persevered through the eons while remaining founderless since times before history, rendering them open to constant attacks overcome time and time again by Riemstagrad in a foundational model for regional self-defense,

Amazed that following the disappearance of Belgium’s delegate Paq and news of an impending invasion, which often signaled the doom of many powerless regions like Belgium, Riemstagrad quickly fortified the region and mobilized its native citizenry. They would elevate [nation=West-Flanders] to the Delegacy to retain the operationality of Belgium's defenses and initiate the drafting of a constitution in a astonishingly quick and effective response against raider forces, leaving Belgium safe and sound under Riemstagrad’s impressive foresight and leadership in a situation that had claimed so many other defenseless regions,

Awestruck at Riemstagrad’s work in securing Belgium following this first attack, developing its citizenry to counter raider forces by founding Belgium’s army, whose soldiers stood vigilant when few others were watching to ensure the safety of their homes and others. They would also galvanize activity in the region to ward off appearances of idleness that often attracted raids by creating its regional forums for further residential engagement and forming closer ties to their linguistic neighbors of [region=Nederland], resulting in the creation of the Belgium-Nederlands confederation that served as one of the first regional cultural alliances and open the door to stronger relationships with the defender sphere,

Admiring Riemstagrad’s guidance of Belgium abroad, building their reputation as a cornerstone of the early defender community in historic defender alliances like the Allied Liberation League, becoming a fundamental member of a defending apparatus that introduced stability into an incredibly chaotic world, and the Global Liberation Alliance, where Riemstagrad joined forces with defenders like Ballotonia and Ananke to mount numerous defenses against attacks like the one on Belgium,

Grateful for Riemstagrad’s leading role in the defense of innumerable regions against tough odds, helping to pioneer early defender tactics when few tools existed to facilitate the often incredibly difficult protection of regions, resulting in legendary feats like:
  • Riemstagrad’s successful 2004 liberation of France against nigh-impregnable invader defenses in a brilliant tactical maneuver that allowed their forces to outpace raider forces without the help of well-developed coordination technology, as well as
  • the trouncing of raiders led by DEN and Blue Moon in Imperial Europe, a region controlled by a seemingly inactive Ballotonia. Riemstagrad infiltrated raider forces and baited nearly all the raider militaries in existence into the region while coordinating a fake defense against them, before unveiling the trap and allowing Ballotonia to eject the invaders in a ploy that distracted raider armies from laying waste to truly vulnerable regions,

Astounded by Riemstagrad’s continuous defense of Belgium through innumerable attacks over two decades as its ubiquitous Vice Delegate, repelling or outlasting each one without fail. They kept the region alive even through dire scenarios like the 2009 Macedon invasion that sparked the creation of the Liberation proposal type in this council, during which Riemstagrad acted as a crucial native voice broadcasting the situation to the wider world and and helped to mount the resistance in a seemingly hopeless scenario before the passage of SCR#4,

Grateful for Riemstagrad’s continued dedication to the defender cause through the decades, working in the United Defenders League to help protect regions that historically fell prey to raider sights, helping to create a massive sleeper network of nations that were instrumental in the protection of many regions like England, and saving the region of Austria from raider clutches by refounding it alongside Ravania,

Convinced that while Riemstagrad’s history in their continuous defense of regions has been truly epic, their work in the international artwork scene also goes unmatched, exemplified by their awe-inspiring collections of every single “Epic” rarity artwork ever produced, a feat matched by none that only compounds the weight of Riemstagrad’s dedication to any cause they strive to see through,

Proud that through the shifting tides and relentless winds of time, Riemstagrad has persevered, and in their continued and determined existence stand as a symbol of the undeterred and unfaltering,

Hereby Commends Riemstagrad.

I remember this. They were trying really hard to get most of the Season 1 epics down so they reached out to multiple players across several weeks-months. And of course they've repeated this process for seasons 2 and 3!

They're a dedicated trader; would like to see this pass

also why are all of your drafts so good

I think it's worth noting that Riem was also heavily involved in keeping the invasion of Belgium in the public eye. There's probably a dozen other significant players you can see in that thread who had a leading role in this (e.g. Nai, Goobs, CG, Todd), but while Riem wasn't so involved in the discussion of technical solutions, he was probably the key "native voice" in persuading others of the value of Belgium's community and that changes were needed to better allow it to protect itself. It's that thread which prompted site staff to eventually come up with SC Liberations. Previous such invasions, such as France, hadn't attracted the same attention and those regions and their communities died as a result.

!! Gotcha gotcha, I've added this in and hopefully it fits in okay. That's an awesome bit of historical context.

Collecting all epic cards across all seasons is something that no other player has done or will likely ever do. S1 epics are essentially impossible now without pull events and S2 epics are pretty near impossible. I remember the end of their S1 epics collection quite well and even with pull events it took an insane amount of effort and convincing people to sell or put up their cards for pull events.

Put simply, it's commendable for its uniqueness and the impossibility of replicating it.

I remember reaching out to various former players by sending them messages on the off site forums and prepping any puppets of mine to be handed over to get wa and endorsement.

It was a tough time. And I'm happy to see riemst getting commended.

Hi west I'm not good at politics so IDK how this would affect the passing chances, but Riem is expected to finish every epic and legendary within the year hell be the first player to ever accomplish it and quite possibly the only one considering how hard both the legendary and epic s1 collections are now and ofc s3 legs rn is also very hard, so his collection of every single epic and leg is an enormously commendable task

Rambling aside, I feel like it would be good to, if at all possible, wait until his s3 leg collection is finished and update the draft accordingly

Hi West - I do have some comments, nothing major. This is another epic draft, phenomenal research into the history of a much storied nation.

Okay, criticisms. When I read a draft or even (especially) my own reports for work I am on the lookout for repetition of words or phrases used in relatively quick succession. I find it jarring and disruptive to the flow of the text.

“Foundation” or “foundational” seems to me a bit overused in your draft. “Regional” is as well. I would highlight them but I’m on my phone with a small screen and with my eyesight…..

Not expecting you to be a walking thesaurus, but a little judicial editing wouldn’t come amiss.

In terms of the cards, well I think what you have is sufficient - even without the cards there seems to almost enough material for two Commendations. Almost. :)

There were a couple of very minor grammar edits but they’ll have to wait until I’m on a bigger screen tomorrow.
