The Black Riders elite cavalry rides victorious into battle again, taking the region of Coffee House. Even though the cowardly defenders are trying to change the game in order to put an end to raiding, we will always find a way to outsmart them.

Also, with this occasion I want to announce that I, Feuer Ritter replaced Nordic Arbor as The Black Riders Chief of the General Staff. He decided to step down from the highest command position of TBR after one year of honorable and distinguished service, he still remains a respected Marshal of The Black Riders.
Beside this, The Black Riders "wonder woman", Camo5768 is promoted to the rank of General, thus becoming a member of the TBR General Staff, Congratulations!


The Coffee House Raiders are:

Gest
Kknight
StarWars101
Volanowsh
Socialist Ecuador
Wraith_FIN
Queen Ravenna Fontainon
Deutschland150
Suchasmallthing

Many thanks to our allies The United Imperial Armed Forces for joining the battle.




Training
Bravery
Ruthlessness

The three forces that drive every black rider to victory.

Very nice.
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.

The Black Riders' new recruits rode into battle with the veterans watching over them. A team of privates organized the raid and took control of Death Star. TITO moved against the Eagle Division Private, Ravarx, but the seasoned defenders stood no chance. TBR seized the region. Huzzah!

The following raiders rode into battle:

Ravarx (PVT)
UNOD (PVT)
Suchasmallthing (PFC)
Gest
Kknight

Oh man, two endos on the native delegate. Huzzah! Hail the Black Riders, the fearless men and women who truly take the big risks. :bow:

I suggest that you show the world your prowess by raiding the impenetrable fortress that is The New, I'll hold the door open for the innumerable legion of TBR.

I'm Brick Flair. Nations seem to like me because I am polite, and I'm rarely contentious. I like to surf update, and I really enjoy a nice coup. Years later, a script will tell me that I have a SPDR of 48 and am what some regions call "moderately influential."

Once again The Black Riders rode into victory and easily crushed the pathetic "defense" of Orion!

The charge, inspired and led by Private The Armia Krajowa which was clearly a large success, was comprised of the following riders:

The Armia Krajowa
Gest
Cervas
Ravarx
Suchasmallthing
UNOD
ScienceFiction


We'd also like to point out the defender bad infinitum who made a lulzy fail and endorsed the raiding delegate at the time of the update!

58 minutes ago: Bad Infinitum endorsed Transkila.
58 minutes ago: Bad Infinitum relocated from Nord to Orion.

Personally Orion should be thanking us, after all we are revitalizing their dwindling region!

And this time the founder better NOT come back otherwise the next region shall be annihilated.

The Black Riders once again rode into battle commanded by Captain Koth. Koth began celebrating his birthday by leading a band of frenzied and fendah-thirsty raiders throughout the land. Always pushing forward, though a few comrade fell in the heat of battle, he crushed the natives with his bare hands, proving once again that he is one of TBR's most feared commanders.


20 Regions fell to his relentless attack:

Where the Wild Things Are
Soviet Supreme
Advocates Of Change
Josesa
Il Aureus Republique
The Romulan Star Empire
Halo
Babylon The Great
Insert Name Here
Sapientia
Kingdom Of Iceland
The Civilized World
United Supreme States
The Texas Alliance
Iraq
Monster Island
Sumer
Carpeinia
The Greater Yolo Coprosperity Sphere
United States Of Northwest Territories
Tequila


Into the battle rode the following riders:

Koth II
Gest

Wasn't as much of a battle as it was watching toddlers building sand castles on the beach but good effort nonetheless. Real shame your raiding is no more impressive than a 12 year old spray painting "I wuz here" on as many trains as he can.
