[PASSED] Condemn The Black Riders

Postby Cormac A Stark » Thu Aug 22, 2013 12:30 pm

Condemn The Black Riders
A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.

Category: Condemnation | Nominee: The Black Riders | Proposed by: Cormac A Stark



Description: The Security Council:

Aware that this esteemed body has already condemned The Black Riders, but noting that the previous condemnation does not comprehensively address the international crimes committed by that region and that the forces of The Black Riders have committed many more intolerable acts since last condemned;

Appalled that The Black Riders are, at the time of this resolution's writing, the second largest invader region in the world, having recruited hundreds of nations to engage in wanton acts of destruction against other regions;

Dismayed that the forces of The Black Riders have recently begun targeting for invasion regions which the international community broadly believes should be excluded from such heinous acts, including regions with founding nations still active in their governments and regions in which World Assembly Delegates do not have executive authority;

Shocked by the following atrocities that have been committed by The Black Riders throughout the region's history:

  • Popularization of the practice of tag raiding, in which military forces of The Black Riders have engaged in thousands of brief invasions for the purpose of vandalizing other regions' territory and disrupting communication between native nations;
  • Development of new and insidious technologies to enable tag raiding to be accomplished more swiftly and efficiently than ever before, leaving a greater number of regions vulnerable to invasion and damage;
  • Exportation of tag raiding to other invaders throughout the world, making tag raids the most dominant and frequent form of invasion perpetrated against innocent regions and their native nations;
  • Massive operations in which record numbers of regions have been invaded, including: an operation in which a single division of The Black Riders invaded 53 regions in one night; and an operation called Operation Mayhem, in which three divisions of The Black Riders invaded 98 regions in one afternoon, resulting in the invasion of a total of 141 regions over the course of that day;
  • Construction of embassies, through the use of force, between The Black Riders and more than a thousand regions at the time of this writing;
  • Invasion and long-term occupation of multiple regions, often with the intent to carry out the total destruction of those regions, including but not limited to: Islam, Vlaanderen, Deutschland, Ether, Yorkshire, and New Zealand;
  • Destruction of the regions Charon, Whitereach, and Islamic Revolution of Iran, leaving them uninhabitable by their native nations;
  • Collaboration by senior officials of The Black Riders with two separate attempts to overthrow the legitimate government of the region Osiris: first by the nation Knights of the Round Fable, governed by a puppet stated controlled by The Phantom Knights, during the Delegacy of Zaolat; then by the nation Bachman-Turner Overdrive, governed by a puppet state controlled by Durkadurkiranistan II, during the Delegacy of Dalimbar;

Alarmed by the continued growth of The Black Riders and the appeal of the region's destructive behavior to newly established nations;

Insistent that the military forces of The Black Riders pose a significant threat to the interregional peace and goodwill that the Security Council is charged with upholding; and

Determined, in a comprehensive manner, to place the international community's permanent stamp of disapproval upon the disruptive and destructive actions carried out by The Black Riders:

Hereby Condemns The Black Riders.

Co-authored by Ramaeus

In light of repeated failures to repeal SC#91, Condemn The Black Riders, I have decided to submit this as a second condemnation.

While I do think condemning them is playing to them, this looks like a lot better of a condemnation to go with than the previous version at any rate.

I'm pulling mine tonight simply because of that blasted renegade italics tag but it should be back by tomorrow as that was the only fault with it I can see.

I heard rumour that Captain Woodhouse of Nazi Europe supports that too, not the mention LCG of The GGR. They can be harsh with their evaluations. How about UDL, what is your stance?

For preventing unnescessary blah blahs, please Just submit that Proposal and go on. :p

Much better written, but I oppose the condemnation of raiders for being raiders on principle, because I don't believe raiding in of itself to be condemn-worthy.

Opposed, but not with much omph behind my oppoisition.
Never underestimate the power of cynicism, pessimism and negativity to prevent terrible things from happening. Only idealists try to build the future on a mountain of bodies.

The Thing to Remember About NationStates is that it is an almost entirely social game - fundamentally, you have no power beyond your own ability to convince people to go along with your ideas. In that sense, even the most dictatorial region is fundamentally democratic.

I missed an "n" -- you have to decipher the code as to where it was meant to go, and act upon that revealed information as you see fit. It might not make sense now, but it will, in time I believe. Feux has seemingly already got it ;) although he's not the author. Perhaps you could ask him.

Instead of posting cryptic riddles, maybe you could say "oh, sorry, forgot an 'n'" and move on? That works sometimes, y'know.

Well, obviously. :P
If the original condemn wasn't repealed first, this one would likely be illegal for duplication (condemns TBR a second time for the same actions - tag-raiding and griefing various regions - with specific mention of RORMS).

As a note, I have no intention of submitting this before the original condemnation is repealed. It would duplicate the original condemnation, in parts, and besides I have no desire to give The Black Riders a decently written condemnation alongside the poorly written excuse for a condemnation they currently have. :P

Given the recent events with Cormac, is this still being pursued? That has a big impact on the repeal.

I don't know.

However, I'd like to do a condemnation if Cormac doesn't pursue this. I think I'll talk to Abacathea.

Popularization of the practice of tag raiding under the tutelage of General Halcones, in which military forces of The Black Riders have engaged in hundreds of brief invasions for the purpose of vandalizing other regions' territory and disrupting communication between native nations;


I would fully support the resolution only for this crime against humanity, there is no doubt tag raiding is the most boring and play-kill thing added to the R/D game. It turned the whole thing is "who clicks faster?" and both parties gave up in order to do "waves motion": raiders tag, next update defenders detag, rinse and repeat with thousands of semi-dead regions that doesn't even care anymore.
