Free Republics National Information


History of the Free Republics

The Federation of Free Republics was formed in 1767, following decades of revolutions in the Lunia region. In the previous few decades, there had been a wave of revolutions. The ideas of liberalism had become popular in the region, as Abram Schmitts, an economist from Shostistan, wrote several books promoting the benefits of capitalizm. Soon, absolute monarchies fell throughout the Lunia region. The Kingdom of Saintland remained unaffected by this wave of revolutions, due to its self-imposed isolation.

Following the revolutions, there were now many Republics scattered throughout the region. These Republics faced seemingly constant attempts from reactionary elements to reverse the revolution and bring back absolute monarchy. They also had trouble trading and communicating with one another. The newly free, with a lowercase f, Republics had numerous antiquated laws and contradictory systems of measurement in effect. A foot in Vorita was 2 feet in Amolotopia and a meter in Roxawa was a decimeter in Nejax. It was a total mess all around. This mess was made even worse by the multitude of languages spoken in the different Republics. As they sought to eliminate trade barriers and forge closer ties between one another, their efforts resulted in confusion. In the days of absolute monarchy, the inability to speak one another's language was a benefit, since kings were always waging wars against one another. However, as the Industrial Revolution heated up and brought an unprecedented degree of prosperity to the land, they could no longer maintain separate languages, separate measurements and the arcane laws and regulations that were hindering commerce in the region.

Then, a rebellion broke out in the Republic of Roxawa. The rebels sought to abolish all property, all laws and even government itself. Rampaging around the countryside, they attacked government buildings, vandalized property and stole whatever they felt like. All the while, they spoke of total freedom. Terrifying the Republic's well-armed militia into inaction, the rebel crime spree continued for weeks. Fear spread throughout the region that other "rebellions" of this sort would soon break out, providing the perfect excuse for the Federationists. The leaders of 77 Republics throughout the region agreed to send delegates to the city of Baseton in Amolotopia to discuss an appropriate response to the rebellion. This was a pretext, which was seized upon by the Federationists to push their "Constitution" scheme.

The Federationists proposed that a document called a "Constitution" would establish a new unified government of all of the Republics, known as the Federation Government. This would be a relatively weak government, as the Republics would remain mostly autonomous and generally free to do as they wished in governing themselves. The Federation Government would have an enumerated list of responsibilities, such as promoting commerce, maintaining a common foreign policy and common immigration policy and several other minor tasks, such as the option to establish a national postal system.

The Constitution guaranteed a number of fundamental rights. Among them are the rights to freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion and the right to own weapons for the defense not only of oneself and of the Federation, but also against tyranny. Other provisions of the Constitution prohibited unreasonable searches, cruel and unusual punishments and double jeopardy. The document also included a strict prohibition on the practice of slavery and declared immediately and permanently free any "slave" that was brought within any territory subject to the Free Republics. The Federation Government has the power to pass any legislation it deems necessary to free slaves. While ratification was controversial, due to the feeling among many people that the Federation Government was too powerful, it was eventually ratified by the electorate in each of the original 77 Republics. Today, there are the number of Republics in the Federation is well into the hundreds.

The Constitution created a bicameral Legislature and an executive branch where power is shared equally by the 2 heads of state. The Assembly is the popularly elected branch of the Legislature. Originally, it used a first-past-the-post system, but this was later changed to proportional representation after political parties and coalitions became the norm. The entire Assembly has always been up for re-election every second year. The Senate, by contrast, is a purely appointed branch and Senators serve for life terms. When a Senator is elected to another office, he becomes an inactive Senator, but other than such periods when he may serve in other offices, he is a Senator for life, without exception. Each Republic may appoint a new Senator every second year and Senators are appointed in the same years when Assembly elections are held. Finally, the Consuls are elected to 8 year terms, with a new Consul elected every 4th year. This means that every other Assembly election is held simultaneously with a Consul election. The Constitution prohibits any Consul from serving more than a single term per lifetime. Originally, Consuls were also elected first-past-the-post, but that has since changed to a 3 round system. In the first round, the top 2 candidates, plus any other candidates that get at least 10 percent of the vote advance, assuming that no candidate gets a majority of the vote. The second round sees the top 2 candidates advance, again assuming that nobody wins a majority of the votes cast. In the third and final round, whoever wins the majority of votes cast is elected. Both Consuls have and have always had full power to veto any act of the other and former Consuls automatically become Senators upon the expiration of their term in office.

The government of the Free Republics quickly moved to standardize the system of measurements used throughout the Federation and adopt English as the national language. To help transition the Federation to an English-speaking nation, the Federation Government established a system of schools funded by the Federation Government, which ensured that the next generation would speak English and identify themselves as Republicans, rather than identifying themselves by their home Republic and speaking their Republic's native language. A substantial minority of parents resisted this effort, but children were allowed to go to school and learn English, whether or not they had parental permission. By 1830, almost everybody spoke English and identified as a Republican, not an Amolotopian, Roxawan, Voritan, Schost or whatever the demonym was for their home Republic. This brought about a more unified society. Around this time, education was returned to the Republics, most of which eventually adopted a voucher based system.

The government also banned trade barriers between Republics. This was an expected and noncontroversial move. The funding of the government by a tariff also proved uncontroversial, since politicians generally agreed that the tariff should be limited to revenue only and not used to "protect" industries from competition. However, an income tax was eventually adopted as foreign imports began to dry up. The Republican economy was simply too much of a powerhouse to justify importing goods from abroad. Discontent with the income tax grew as the government kept pushing it higher and higher. Finally, Paul Musgrove ran for Consul on a platform of capping all taxes at 10 percent of income. After his election, the amendment passed both the Assembly and the Senate before being sent directly to referendum. Voters in every Republic overwhelmingly voted for it and it became a popular amendment.

In the 20th century, the Free Republics became even more of an economic powerhouse, thanks to the capitalizt economic system. Business thrived in the FFR, as the nation became progressively wealthier. Over the years, the FFR has expanded its territory while remaining on the cutting edge of technological advancement. In the present day, the Free Republics have a population in the billions and are one of the wealthiest nations in the multiverse, with a correspondingly high rate of income inequality. The exact population of the Free Republics is unknown, due to a Constitutional amendment adopted in 1934, which prohibited the taking of a Census by any entity, whether governmental or otherwise.

Several years ago, the Free Republics were left leaderless following the death of both Consuls within the span of a few months, one of them via assassination. In the chaos, Reino Kulseth of the Holy Party was elected Consul and gradually obtained dictatorial power for himself at the expense of the nation's Republican institutions. Kulseth established a tyrannical government that passed laws against lying (despite routinely lying to their own people) and mandating the use of the word "thou" instead of you in most circumstances. Kulseth dragged the nation into a large-scale war that proved extremely costly for both sides and which led to his downfall.

In the end, the Republican people rose up against Kulseth and, aligned with several foreign armies, brought down Kulseth's "Holy Republican Empire" and brought back the Federation of Free Republics. Robert Nicholls, the father of Veleik Nicholls (leader of the popular revolt) and owner of Nicholls Enterprises, was named the new Acting Consul until such time as the normal electoral process could elect his replacement. However, the following election led to the rise to power of another tyrant, Consul Caleb O'Reilly, who jailed Acting Consul Nicholls and basically turned over control of the country to a hivemind of robots which oppressed the people of the nation until one day when hackers disabled the robots and Consul O'Reilly resigned from office, claiming to have been under hypnosis during his entire time as Consul. In the aftermath, Consul Nicholls was restored to power as the Senior Consul as the FFR geared up for another election. Consul Nicholls intended to spend his time as Consul restoring the Free Republics to its former glory and was relieved that the Republican people selected retired soccer player and current professional wrestler Kyle Bolton to be their new Junior Consul in the election.

Unfortunately, the left-wing extremists in a handful of Republics, who had previously scared many Republicans into voting for Kulseth and O'Reilly, rose up in a wave of anarchistic street violence. When the Federation Government adopted measures to stop the violence, the 32 Republics they controlled seceded from the Free Republics and declared themselves a Confederacy of Leftist Republics, which quickly became a state sponsor of terror. Consul Nicholls waged war against this rebellion and ultimately defeated them. After the conclusion of this short-lived civil war, Consul Nicholls introduced "charter societies" located in the 32 former Leftist Republics and sold off ownership of these autonomous societies, whose residents are prohibited from participating in Federation Government elections or sending any representation to Republica, to the highest bidding political extremist groups in an effort to address the FFR's political extremism problem once and for all.

With the extremist groups largely exiled to the charter societies, political stability has improved in the nation. This quickly bore some fruit with the decision by the Free Republics to join the Reichsburg Free Trade Agreement and negotiate other free trade agreements with the various nations of the multiverse. Scarlett Nicholls was elected as the new Consul 4 years ago and has focused on a moderate socially progressive agenda, highlighted by her successful effort to legalize same-sex marriage, her push for gender equality in Republican society and her support of the FFR's famous sex-positive culture.

Transportation

Just about every mode of transportation is an option in the Free Republics. Visitors for the World Bowl may arrive at any seaport or airport in the Free Republics. Planes and ships may also be used to travel between cities. As the Free Republics spans 4 continents and many thousands of miles, the use of planes is recommended for long-distance travel.

Several private companies offer high speed rail between cities. It is possible to travel through most of the Free Republics on high-speed rail, although in some places you may have to walk across the city to a competing company's station to go to your desired destination. There is a high speed rail network across the Malifornia Charter Society.

The use of bicycles, although unregulated, is not recommended. The Free Republics are simply too vast a nation, so players and fans that travel by bike risk missing a match altogether.

Taxis are available in every city that will be hosting World Bowl games. Most bus services cover a radius of less than 100 miles, so the use of buses is only recommended for short distance travel.

Automobiles are legal in the Free Republics and can be rented near any airport or seaport. Travel by automobile is possible to any nation located on one of the 4 continents upon which the Free Republics are located. However, as the Republican continents are located in Lunia, it is not possible to travel by automobile to-or-from the Free Republics and any other nation participating in the World Bowl. Anybody who intends to rent a car is strongly encouraged to get a Republican drivers license, as foreign drivers licenses are only recognized in certain Republics. Most Republics will hand out a drivers license to anybody that applies and passes the driving test. The difficulty of these tests varies greatly by Republics. The test in Nejax is notoriously easy while the test in Amolotopia is notorious as one of the most difficult. Despite this, all Republics are required by Federation law to recognize out-of-Republic drivers licenses as valid. A wide variety of cars are commonly available in the Free Republics, such as SUVs, sports cars and pick-up trucks. Those that have money to burn may rent luxury cars or limos. The vast majority of cars on the road are produced in the Free Republics. Many roads, especially long distance roads, are underfunded and in poor condition, so planes and high speed rail are much more popular in the Free Republics.

Lodging

There are numerous hotel firms throughout the Free Republics. Participating nations will be required to pay for their own lodging. We encourage participating teams to visit hotels.co.republica and purchase rooms before the rush. Those that wait may very well end up staying in a cheap motel with holes in the walls and bedbugs under the sheets.

Those national teams that do not wish to stay in hotels may stay at campgrounds outside of the host city.

Weather

The Free Republics has a varied climate. As the World Bowl will be held during the winter months, there will be cold weather in the northern parts of the Federation for the duration of the competition. Snow is a real possibility especially in the north but also in the central Free Republics. The south is still warm though even at this time of year.

Language

The official language of the Free Republics is English and all government documents are printed in English. Most private businesses do not print anything in a non-English language. While the rise of xenophobia in the Free Republics has subsided, most Republicans still don't speak any languages other than English. The most common foreign language spoken in the Free Republics is Latin, due to the influence of the Church of Saintland in recent years, but its use is currently frowned upon outside of the Malifornia Charter Society because of the language's association with the former Kulseth dictatorship.

Currency

The Republican Thaler is the only widely accepted currency in the Free Republics. Financial institutions are generally willing to change Sanctii bullion, Acedonian Aces or Universal Standard Dollars into Thalers. Due to the large number of currencies in the world, it is impossible for financial institutions in the Free Republics to keep track of all of them. Therefore, it is highly recommend that everybody visiting the Free Republics get their currency converted into Thalers, USDs or bullion before entering the Free Republics. Non-Republican Thalers, such as the now-defunct Taxachusetts Thaler (which was notorious for its extremely high inflation rates), are not accepted as currency in the Free Republics and are not convertible into Republican Thalers.

Entertainment

There are a plethora of entertainment options in the Free Republics. Every quality hotel room comes equipped with cable or satellite television, including thousands of channels and an interactive program guide. No matter what your preferences, you can probably find something on Republican television that you'd want to watch. If you can't find anything to watch on TV, you can always log on to Sanctustube, a video sharing website from Saintland, and browse the uncensored version of the site, which has (illegal) copies of just about every television program and movie in the multiverse.

Virtually every town in the Free Republics includes a movie theater, which is a popular social hangout. Tickets are relatively inexpensive, to keep an endless flow of teenagers coming into the movie theaters. Concerts are held in the major cities on a near-daily basis and there are several popular groups in each major genre.

Nightclubs and bars are available in virtually every village, town or city in the entire Federation. The local laws do differ, but most Republics will allow anybody over the age of 15 or so to enter a bar or nightclub. Strip clubs and brothels are also popular, although the regulation of those establishments greatly differs in each Republic. Women should be forewarned that the definition of consent in the Free Republics tends to be somewhat looser than they may be used to. In particular, Republican law regards intoxicated individuals as 100% capable of giving consent to the same extent as sober individuals and holds such individuals fully responsible for their actions and choices while intoxicated. Republican law also applies a "reasonable belief" test under which non-consensual sex is lawful if the consenting party has a "reasonable belief" that the other party is consenting. Many bars and clubs also sell marijuana, which is legal throughout most of the Free Republics (despite the efforts of the Outlaw Marijuana Party to change this).

In the past, pro wrestling has been a popular form of entertainment in the Free Republics, especially among guys between the ages of 13 and 30. The wrestling company in the Free Republics put on extremely violent and sexualized shows. As their shows grew more explicit, their ratings steadily increased to the point where they were once of the most popular programs on television in the Free Republics. The Republican Wrestling Conglomerate attempted international expansion at one time, but the rise of Consul Kulseth and the restrictions he imposed on the content of their programming eventually drove them out of business. Abelino Sagese, their former owner, established the New Republican Wrestling Conglomerate, but it is not quite as popular yet as its predecessor. The issues of the NRWC have been exacerbated by its recent decision to fire an executive because his wife was a vocal critic of certain radical forms of Christianity on social media. This inspired the National Baseball Team to launch a campaign called "Stand Up to Sexism" to promote gender equality in Republican sports and eventually forced the NRWC to back down, apologize and offer the executive his job back. All-Taiyou Pro Wrestling of Noburu Taiyou has recently attempted to enter the Republican market and even held a number of events in major arenas earlier this year after purchasing arena dates from the National Basketball Team due to the numerous delays of this year's IBC tournament.

Republican entertainment has been hit hard by the Kulseth and O'Reilly regimes, but businesses in that sector are currently trying to revive it. The Republican video game industry, long dominated by the RepublicSoft Saint, a device created as part of a partnership between RepublicSoft and the Sanctii government, has been hit particularly hard due to RepublicSoft's extremely close ties to the Kulseth regime. Republican gamers are currently enjoying the Miktondo Flip, a Taiyouese import that was the first to release of a new generation of handheld gaming devices while increasing numbers of Republican computer users have begun migrating to open source alternatives to RepublicSoft's Doors operating system and Citrus Computing's cOS mobile operating system, particularly after the free upgrade to Doors 12 was discovered to contain numerous backdoors designed to aid the efforts of the Kulseth government to spy on its citizens and Citrus Computing was discovered to have collaborated with the O'Reilly regime. Even Googol's Cyborg mobile OS has come under much criticism of late for overly restricting the freedom of its users. One of the more popular open source operating systems is Perestroika.
Important Laws

For the most part, visiting teams and fans will not have to worry about any unusual laws in the Free Republics. While public nudity statutes remain on the books in many Republics and around half of the Republics restrict the use of hard drugs, pornography, prostitution, alcohol, tobacco and cannabis are generally legal. In fact, pornography is legal everywhere in the FFR, as it is recognized by the Federation courts as freedom of speech. While many of these activities were barred at the request of the Kulseth regime and later barred again by the O'Reilly regime, there has been a push since the fall of the dictatorships to legalize them as widely as possible. However, laws against abortion tend to vary between Republics and some Republics have made it a crime to utilize their transportation infrastructure to travel to another Republic to procure an abortion. Public opposition to abortion has been growing in recent years, so more and more Republics are passing laws restricting or outlawing abortion.

Some Republics have their share of silly laws. The Constitutional provision prohibiting "cruel and unusual punishment" does not have as strong of an effect as you might expect because the Federation courts use an 18th century definition of cruel and unusual punishment. While nobody's going to be hung, drawn and quartered or tortured for evidence, several backwater Republics do practice some rather bizarre punishments for crimes. If you're going to run into any legal problems, it will probably be in some backwater Republic, since they have historically been the main power base of extremist politicians in the Free Republics. You may also run into problems in the charter societies as they are not required to follow the Federation Constitution and are generally run by extremist groups. Even under the Kulseth and O'Reilly Consulships, the federal system remained largely intact, so many of these extremist politicians have been in power since the days before Kulseth's rise.

In particular, women visiting the Free Republics should be mindful that sexual consent is defined slightly more broadly than they may be used to. The Free Republics has traditionally had a very sex-positive culture for the most part and has tended to be suspicious at times regarding the reliability of accusations of sexual crimes. The different sexual norms in the Free Republics have caused several international incidents in the past. Sexual norms changed during the Kulseth regime and have yet to fully return to the way that they were. Given Kulseth's popularity among Republican women, it is doubtful that the old sexual culture will ever be fully restored but there are many Republicans who long for a return to normalcy, including the old sexual norms, and the nightlife industry is currently bigger and more successful than it has been at any point since the rise of Kulseth.

Stadiums

Over the course of the World Bowl, there will be a total of 13 different host regions that will host games. For the First Group Stage, 8 cities will host games, one for each group. An additional 4 cities will host the second group stage. Finally, the double elimination rounds will be held in Republica, the capital of the Free Republics. If 2 ranked teams are facing each other, then the 2 ranked teams will generally play in the first listed stadium for their group, the other game involving a ranked team will take place in the second listed stadium and the game between two unranked teams takes place in the third stadium. On days where none of the ranked teams are facing each other, the game involving the pot 1 team takes place in the first stadium, the game involving the pot 2 team takes place in the second stadium and the game involving the pot 3 team takes place in the third stadium. For MDs 1 to 4, the games will be scheduled to take place sequentially (i.e. next game starts after the previous game concludes). For MD5, all games involving a given group will take place concurrently (i.e. same start time) as an anti-collusion measure. The exception to these rules is the O'Reilly Group of Greatness where Free Republics games will always be played in CoCoCo Stadium.

AllMart Group

AllMart Dome

Located in Reco, Jolarus, the AllMartDome is an 88,234 seat stadium. Sponsored by AllMart, the leading big box store in the Free Republics, the AllMartDome is a multi-purpose domed stadium used for soccer, football, baseball and several other sports, as well as conventions. A giant green and yellow AllMart logo is one of the stadium's defining features, along with its transparent roof, which permits a natural grass surface to be installed inside of a domed stadium. Jolarus is a socially conservative Republic located in the central part of the Free Republics.

Notes on Style of Play

The Flexbone is an offense that is built around athletic quarterbacks who can run and pass. If a quarterback is injured, a new one will step in and will run a similar style of offense. Triple options are a significant part of the offense but the slotbacks are very capable pass receivers and the fullback is a capable inside runner. There is also a variant of the Flexbone that utilizes a tight end. In this variant, one of the slotbacks moves out to the wing to become a wingback. While they will run the ball around two thirds of the time, passing plays can be extremely effective in this offense and they will go after the opposing defense with pass plays if they focus too heavily on stopping the run.

The Republican version of the 46 defense relies heavily on pressure and pre-snap movement. The strong safety in this defense is more comparable to a linebacker. The aim of this defense is to shut down the run and force the opposing QB to throw quickly. Against spread formations, they will drop extra men into coverage. While the linebackers will have trouble covering fast wide receivers man-to-man, they are fast enough to hang with a possession receiver. To play for the Republican National Team, defenders have to be fast regardless of position and they have to be looking to force turnovers at every opportunity.

If you're looking for a RL analogue to their style of play, the closest current NFL analogue to their style of play would be the Ravens though the FFR was running this system before they started running something similar. The offensive scheme was a popular college offense in RL in the 80s (and is mainly used by the military schools in RL these days) and the defensive scheme was used in RL by the 85 Bears (i.e. its the Buddy Ryan version, not the Rex Ryan version that the Ravens have been running for the last 15 years).

THE HAPILOPPER NATIONAL GRIDIRON FOOTBALL TEAM

Full Nation Name: The Dominion of Hapilopper
Trigramme: HAP
Nicknames: The Haps
Team Colors: Blue, Green and White

Head Coach: Ducky Jenkins
A former player himself, Jenkins was one of those that played a hard-nosed style of defense back in his day playing gridiron football back in the 1980s. Regardless, Jenkins has turned that around and likes to rely on a high-flying pass-based offense in his games, relying on a West Coast-style offense with three wide receivers and one tight end for most of the time. He brings together a tough, hard-hitting group of players, who, at the very least, have learned not to laugh at the name "Ducky." Seriously. They'll have to run laps in practice every time someone - anyone - laughs at the name "Ducky." Meanwhile, the defense will rely on a 4-3 formation.
Ducky's staff includes:
"Get-Back" Coach Tommy Booth
Offensive Coordinator Tito Heck
Defensive Coordinator Leo Fletcher
Quarterback Coach Lou Wehnert
Offensive Line Coach Burt Kingston
Defensive Line Coach Xavier Bennett
Offensive Quality Control Wade Ogden
Defensive Quality Control Curt McKellar
Strength and Conditioning Coach Kenny Lanford

RP Permissions
My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Choose my scorers: Yes
Choose scoring events: Yes
RP injuries to my players: Yes. Injuries in gridiron football are almost to be expected. However, if you want to do anything serious, TG me or send me a message on Discord and we'll talk about it.
Godmod scoring events: Yes, but send me a message beforehand. If something has actually happened in a football game, like Zakoby McClain's pick-six in the Iron Bowl last year, I won't consider it god-modding.
Godmod injuries: TG me beforehand and we'll talk about it.
Godmod other events: TG me beforehand and we'll talk about it, but I will say please don't kill any of my players.

Uniforms: Everyone's famous black and white riot gear football uniforms are back for our players to wear. This time, we have LED numbers on the back of our players, so they can light up during a match. Uniforms also include our red V's which is important, as it is a symbol of our nation. Demons are given similar uniforms that monitor their stress level for several safety reasons.

The Following Is A Message From The Gridiron Football Association of TJUN-ia (Tah-JUN-ee-a) (GFA-TJUN-ia)

TJUN-ia, as an International Community, has of course learnt of the sport known as "American Football" (or "Hand Egg" as people from TJUN-ia City like to call it). With the nation starting to dive into the world of international sports, we were created for the purposes of representing the state in gridiron.

Name: TJUN-ia
Trigramme: TJN (?)
Nickname: The Jaguars or The Jags
Colours: Light Blue/Orange/White

SQUAD

As this is our first ever international Gridiron tournament, a group of coaches have been sent with the team to the Free Republics with the objective of sorting the team out amongst themselves. FA-TJUN-ia did the same thing during BoF 71, so GFA-TJUN-ia will do the same.

OFFENCE

Formation: Shotgun (We believe that this formation will give the Jags options in both passing and rushing)

QB: #10 Jake Griffin (21)
HB: #40 Vinny Mac (22)
WR/KR: #80 Hubert Valois (21)
WR: #81 Jack Davidson (22)
WR: #82 Chris Davidson (22)
LT: #50 Jason Jeeves (22)
LG: #51 La'shaun Mackey (21)
C: #52 David Marquez (22)
RG: #53 Opa Maleleo (21)
RT: #54 Tim Green (22)
TE: #41 Wilson Hibbert (21)

DEFENCE

Formation: 3-4 (Modern version of 7-diamond, we feel we can use this better that the others)

NT: #90 Prince Brown (22)
DE: #91 Jester Carter (23) (brother of Prince Carter, footballer formally of Galar)
DE: #92 Andrew Dallapaz (21)
LB: #45 Giannis Minshew (22)

CB: #21 Graham Polison (21)
FS: #22 Drew McAllister (22)
SS/PR: #23 Pedro Marquinios (23)

SPECIAL TEAMS

These use players from both offence (block) and defence (tackle) during special plays.
K: #5 Chi On-Ma(21)
H/QB (backup): #2 Allister Ghoulson (20)
P: #6 Martin Grevers(21)
LS: #99 Alf Gunnarsson (22)



SCHEDULE
MD1: vs The Transmondian Commonwealth of New England(9) @Happy Valley Stadium, Republic College, Rensylvania
MD2: vs Cardo (UR) @National Organisation of Men Stadium, Estonopolis, Keronama

Sporting World

Sporting World Guide to Football

With the World Bowl coming home for the 3rd claim (OOC: ICly, the Free Republics claims to have invented the sport but this claim is disputed.), Sporting World Magazine has decided to publish a guide to the sport for the benefit of those around the multiverse who may not be overly familiar with the rules and the basic strategies.

The Basics

Football is played on a 100 yard (OOC: 1 yard = 0.9144 meters) field (plus two "end zones" of 10 yards each) between 2 teams of helmeted and heavily padded players, 11 of whom are on the field for each team at all times. There is unrestricted substitution and rosters routinely include large numbers of players (OOC: In the RL NFL, there are 53 spots on a roster plus several practice squad players who aren't allowed to play in an actual game. NFL teams have 45 active players for each game plus a 3rd string quarterback who is only allowed to play if both quarterbacks ahead of him on the depth chart are injured in the game. In NCAA college football, rosters can be much larger). Players usually play on either offense or defense but not both (OOC: In the RL NFL, Ravens FB/DL Patrick Ricard is an extremely rare exception but 2 way players are actually somewhat common at the high school level due to lack of players.). The object of the game is to score more points than the other team.

On most plays, the team that has possession of the ball snaps it from scrimmage. This means that the center either hands the ball to the quarterback (if he's "under center" meaning "lined up right behind the center") or throws it back to the quarterback (if he's lined up in a pistol or shotgun formation, meaning a few yards behind the center). At the moment of the snap, 7 offensive players must be positioned on the line of scrimmage which is the yard marker where the ball sits. To maintain possession, the team on offense must gain 10 yards within 4 plays (called "downs"). Failure to do so forfeits possession of the ball to the other team. In practice, teams usually kick the ball on 4th down for strategic reasons.

There are 2 ways to move the ball forward. One such way is the forward pass, where the quarterback throws the ball to another player who is further downfield. Forward passes are only legal if thrown from behind the line of scrimmage. In addition, the 5 players who were positioned on the interior of the line of scrimmage are ineligible to catch a forward pass. If more than 7 players are stationed on the line of scrimmage, then those players are also ineligible to catch a pass. There is a strict limit of 1 forward pass per play (OOC: In the RL XFL, you will be allowed to throw 2 forward passes on the same play but the World Bowl doesn't use that rule.). The other way to advance the ball is to run with the ball. In addition to running with the ball, a player may hand the ball to a teammate or throw an unlimited number of backward passes. While an incomplete forward pass is a "dead ball" (which means that the next play starts from the same line of scrimmage), an incomplete backward pass or dropping the ball while in possession of it with it is a "fumble" which means a live ball that can be picked up by any player on either team. After catching a forward pass, a player may run with it to gain additional yards. If a player on the defending team catches a forward pass, that is called an "interception" and the player may advance the ball.

Each team is positioned along a "sideline" to either the left or the right of the playing field. If a player carries the ball out of the playing field and into the sideline, that player is deemed "out of bounds" and the ball is placed at that yard line. More specifically, if a player is tackled on the left or right of the field, the ball is placed on the left or right "hashmark" which are the pair of yard markers close to the middle of a field. If a player is tackled in between the hashmarks, the ball is placed at the spot where the player was tackled. A forward pass thrown out of bounds is incomplete, even if the player catches it. A pass receiver is only considered to be "in bounds" if he has possession of the ball and gets both feet down inside the field of play (OOC: In RL, the college rule is 1 foot down in bounds but the World Bowl uses the NFL rule of 2 feet down.). In many countries (OOC: and RL football), scoring plays and turnovers are automatically reviewed and coaches can challenge other plays. One of the most common types of challenges involves whether a pass receiver caught the ball in bounds or was out of bounds. However, Republican law prohibits the use of instant replay in sports so the coach's challenge rule will not be in effect at this World Bowl. If a fumble goes out of bounds, the team that last possessed the ball retains possession at the spot where it went out of bounds.

When a player crosses into the opposing team's end zone, that is called a "touchdown" and the player's team scores 6 points. A player who catches a forward pass or recovers a fumble in the end zone also scores a touchdown. After scoring a touchdown, a team has 1 play from the 2 yard line where they can either kick the ball through the goalpost, located at the back of the end zone, for 1 point or they can attempt a running or passing play for 2 points. In most circumstances, teams kick the extra point because it is a near automatic play (OOC: The RL NFL moved extra points back to the 10 yard line a few years ago but left 2 point conversions at the 2. We're not using that rule at this World Bowl.). If the offense turns the ball over on a 2 point conversion, the defense can return a fumble, interception or blocked kick for 2 points. Besides touchdowns, there are 2 other ways to score points in football. One such way is the field goal which involves kicking the ball through the goalpost for 3 points. Teams usually attempt field goals on 4th downs when they are within 35 yards or so of the opposing end zone or at the end of a half. Since the goalposts are at the back of the end zone and since you need to place the ball 6 or 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage to attempt a field goal (otherwise, it'd be extremely easy to block), the length of a field goal is usually 16 or 17 more yards than the number of yards the team would need for a touchdown. While this is largely dependent upon the quality of the kicker, kickers are expected to make field goal attempts of less than 40 yards virtually every time, kicks between 40 and 50 yards most of the time, kicks between 50 and 60 yards sometimes and kicks over 60 yards require both an exceptionally skilled kicker plus lots of luck and/or very favorable winds. Field goals are almost always placekicked soccer style with a player holding the ball for the kicker but rugby style drop kicks are also legal in football (OOC: Drop kicks have almost completely disappeared in RL even in arena football where they were worth 2 and 4 points instead of 1 and 3 because of the lack of American athletes who know how to do drop kicks and also the lower probability of making them but surprise drop kicks by the quarterback were somewhat common in the early days of the sport.). The third and final way you can score points is called a safety and involves tackling an opposing player inside of their own end zone. Teams that score a safety also obtain possession of the ball via a "safety punt" which usually means much more favorable field position than you'd get from a normal kickoff.

The kickoff happens at least twice a game. One team kicks off at the start of the first half and the other team kicks off at the start of the second half, based upon the result of the coin flip and the choice made by the team that wins the coin flip. Teams also kickoff after scoring a touchdown or field goal. During a kickoff, a kicker does a running kick from their own 30 yard line (OOC: Now 35 again in RL because the leagues have been trying to reduce the number of kickoff returns due to safety concerns but we're not using that rule in the World Bowl.). If they kick it out of the opposing end zone, that is deemed a touchback and the ball is brought out to the 20 yard line (OOC: now 25 in RL as part of the NFL's attempt to get rid of kickoff returns). If the kick returner catches the ball in their own end zone, they may return it or take a touchback. If the returner is tackled before they can leave the end zone, it is a touchback, not a safety. The kicking team, on a kickoff, may also recover their own kick as long as the ball has traveled at least 10 yards before they touch it. Attempting to recover your own kickoff on purpose is called an "onside kick" and is usually done by teams that are trying to make up a multiple score deficit toward the end of a game (OOC: The NFL has made these almost impossible to pull off as part of their safety rule changes. We're using the old rules in the World Bowl.). A kickoff that travels out of bounds within the field of play is a penalty which results in the ball being placed at the 40 yard line, giving the offense 60 yards to go for a touchdown instead of 80. If it goes out of bounds before reaching the 40 yard line, it is placed at the spot of the foul (the spot where it went out of bounds).

Another type of kick is the punt which is used on 4th down when a team is too far away to attempt a field goal. With the exception of the safety punt, a punt can be blocked by the receiving team. In addition, the kicking team cannot recover their own punt unless it is first touched by a member of the receiving team. If the kicking team touches the punt first, it is down at the spot where they touch the ball. A punt into the end zone is a touchback, which comes out to the 20 yard line. A punt out of bounds is down at the spot where it goes out of bounds. The punt returner has the option of returning the punt or calling for a "fair catch". On a fair catch, players from the kicking team are required to stand back and let the returner catch the ball. However, once fair caught, the ball is down. Fair catches are also allowed for kickoff returns. After receiving a fair catch, a team has the option to attempt a "fair catch kick" which is a field goal attempt that cannot be blocked. Fair catch kicks are extremely rare, as teams usually do not receive punts in field goal range, and only make strategic sense at the end of a half. They can even be attempted if you fair catch a punt with 0 seconds left. (OOC: In the RL NFL, the last successful fair catch kick was in 1976 but the last attempt was by the Panthers Joey Slye during the Panthers-Buccaneers game in London a few months ago)

Besides kickoffs and punts, field goal attempts are also returnable but field goal returns are extremely rare. Most missed field goals, afterall, do not land within the field of play or the end zone. If a missed field goal is not returned, the ball is placed at the spot of the kick so its also tactically questionable to attempt a field goal return unless you have a great returner to receive it.

If both teams are still tied at the end of 4 quarters of 15 minutes each, we go to overtime. In overtime, both teams alternate pairs of possessions starting from the opposing 25 yard line. Each pair of possessions is considered one overtime. During these overtimes, all downs are untimed. The first team to lead after an overtime period wins the game. (OOC: In RL, these are the NCAA overtime rules and also the rules used by the IFAF which holds a RL "World Championship" tournament that a US team consisting of lower division college players always wins. The NFL used to use sudden death rules where overtime was a 15 minute period and the first team to score won and now uses a modified rule where a touchdown is required to win on the first possession of overtime.)

In the next edition of the Sporting World Guide to Football, we will discuss offensive positions.

OOC: Feel free to ask questions in the discussion thread (link also corrected in the first post of this thread as I had originally linked the old discussion thread that was locked years ago) if anything in this guide is unclear.

NEWMANISTAN ROCKETS

WORLD BOWL 38 ROSTER


"Proudly underachieving since World Bowl I"


Starters (Offense) (Standard Formation listed, but many formations are used)
QB- #3- Brian Scanlon, 24, Centralia Firebirds (First Time On Team)
HB- #21- Thomas Browning, 26, Dover City Mountaineers (Averages 65% of carries) (First time starter)
FB- #45- Devlin Grier, 28, Pocono City Capitals (First Time On Team)
WR- #88- Kyle Scandella, 29, Olympia Gladiators (First Time Regular Starter)
WR- #80- Saquon Chapman, 25, Nashua Broncos (First Time Regular Starter)
TE- #86- Clyde Sanders, 29, South Charlotte Condors
LT- #79- Davis Alfonso, 28, Seminole Bay Gators (First Time Starter)
LG- #65- Byron Vanetti, 24, Centralia Firebirds
C- #69- Kyle Cross, 26, Loudon Leopards
RG- #60- Royce Samuel, 25, Loudon Leopards (First Time on Team)
RT- #63- Michael Janssen, 31, Southport Tigers (Offensive Team Captain)

About the offense:
The considerable changeover that has occurred with the offensive starters was not because the former players were getting older, but because last time was seen as quite a significant disappointment. There were several first timers on that team, too, that are not returning. Head coach Marvin Dineen is on the hot seat with this World Bowl, and many believe that the only reason he has been brought back at all is because of the format used. If all goes according to plan, the scrambling QB and agile Browning can established the run to allow Scanlon to take shots down field with his receivers. Newmanistan will often use three WR sets, or a double TE set.

Starters (Defense) (The Rockets Generally Use a 4-3 Base)
DE- #93- Eddie Suarez, 34, Dover City Mountaineers (First Time Starter)
DE- #95- Dontae Riddick, 24, Jessicaville Millionaires (First Time On Team)
DT- #72- Darien Francona, 27, Springfield Thoroughbreds
DT- #97- Anthony Holliday, 33, Jessicaville Millionaires (Defensive Captain)
ILB- #54- Jerome Blanchard, 25, Tundra Falls Mariners (First time Starter)
MLB- #52- Kelvin Spencer, 23, Pocono City Capitals (First time on Team)
OLB- #56- Anthony Guyton, 24, North Charlotte Wildcats (First time on Team)
FS- #27- Brian Headley, 31, Springfield Thoroughbreds
SS- #22- Desmond Jenkins, 24, Olympia Gladiators (First Time on team)
CB- #25- Alejandro Booker, 26, Southport Tigers (First Time on team)
CB- #23- Corey McManus, 23, Putnam Lake Eagles (First Time on team)

About The Defense:
The defense is no different then the offense in that there has been significant changeover in the roster due to the underperformance of the team in World Bowl 37. These players are looking to capitalize on their opportunity, and while they are inexperienced at this level, they are top players at home. Can they come together quickly as a cohesive unit? Time will tell.

HB: #33- Vance Myers, 22, Penthoria Rivermen (First Time on Team) (<5% of carries)
HB: #34- Jason Schmitz, 25, Tundra Falls Mariners (First Time on Team)
FB: #44- Jerry Jamieson, 27, Springfield Thoroughbreds
FB: #40-Ezekiel Hollins, 28, Putnam Lake Eagles (First Time on Team)
TE: #89- Greg Hoffman, 32, Brighton Bulls
TE: #82- David Freeland, 25, Eastport Falcons

Team Cassadaigua- World Bowl 38



The nation is a two-time World Bowl champion, winning the 8th and 22nd editions. In their heyday, the team strength has always been the play of the secondary. They’ll get enough offense, but the defensive backs are outstanding, making us difficult to pass against. We might concede yardage on the ground, but its much more difficult to get it in the air.

Another thing to note is that while Cassadagan teams in other sports are notoriously all-female, the football team has always been mixed gender with men placed on the line of scrimmage.

Space Astronauts


ARENA - "Extaterestrial Dome of Sport".
The dome is constructed of clear plasticized glass allowing a cristal clear view of the stars and planets above. The dome will rotate with respect to its surroundings during matches for enhanced viewing, though any nearby stars (Stars within 2 or fewer Astonomical Units) will remain on the backside of the playing field to prevent glaring and temperature control.

The dome currently has 35,000 permanent seats, with a further 43,000 temporary seating available. The dome is expandable up to over 200,000 seats but there are no plans of this type at the time.

It will be an interesting challenge for the players from opposing nations as the Academy is non terrestrial (Of course, a playing field and gravity are provided, but are isolated to the dome of play itself. The upper dome is clear allowing a view of the solar system). While the team representing Space will surely be the underdog during away matches, it is quietly hoped that they will be able to gain more of a home field advantage than other teams might usually have due to this subtle location difference, and end the season with a respectable recon.

Coach: Spiral Galaxie

Spiral Galaxi the long time defensive coordinator for the Academy of Space is the Head Coach of the Space team for the World Bowl. Cosmo the teams former coach is getting old and will focus only the College Team events NSCF.

Jaspec National Football Team

Facts

Nation Name: Kingdom of Jaspec
Short Names: Jaspec
Demonyms: Jaspecois
Colours: Blue and white
Anthem: ‘Saints de Jaspec’
Capital City: St-Jean-Baptiste
Other Major Cities: Charlesbourg, Trois-Pistoles, Kamouraska, Riviere-du-Loup
Highest Domestic League: Ligue Jaspecois de Football
Nicknames: Les Bleus
Style Modifier: +3

The Kingdom of Jaspec, located in Rushmore, is a decently-sized nation with a population of about 20 million. Historically, the lands now known as Jaspec were split into 4 different independent duchies, before they were united over the course of about 200 years through a series of wars led by the Savard dynasty, who were supported by the Pope of the time. The Savard dynasty has continued to rule Jaspec ever since, currently with King Henri XVII on the throne. The Catholic religion is dominant within Jaspec, with the College of Cardinals having a great deal of influence on internal politics and foreign affairs. Pope Laurent VI is the current head of the Church, and he exerts a great deal of influence over the state. The Pope resides at the Basilique Sacre-Couer in St-Jean-Baptiste, and technically serves as the head of government. Thus, several leading political figures, such as the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Minister of Finance, are also Cardinals. Football is the most popular sport in the country, with the LJF and college seasons being extremely well-supported. The football schedule sees games played on Friday, Saturday and Monday, with the marquee game played in the 7:00pm Saturday evening time slot. Jaspecois football is the 3-down version of the game, but the national team will, of course, adapt to the international rules for the World Bowl.

Coaching Staff

Coach -- Henri Pouliot
Offensive Coordinator -- Joseph Rivet
Defensive Coordinator -- Marcel Levesque


Historically, Jaspecois football has been mainly based around the passing game. This is due to the fact that in Jaspec, football is played with 3 downs and a slightly larger field compared to the international game. Jaspecois quarterbacks are valued for their arm strength and passing ability. Quarterbacks tend to be on the athletic side as well, however, and have great success rushing the ball, such as Acton Vale Maple Leafs QB Jack Bell, who led his team to a National Championship last season. In addition, with running back Hugo Lemieux, who had 1410 rushing yards last season and led the nation, expect a more balanced offence. Jaspecois defences are very strong against the running game, and Marcel Levesque is expected to incorporate much of his colleague Pierre Polet’s tactics which enabled the Maple Leafs to win the National Championship with one of the greatest defensive showings of all-time in the playoffs. The secondary will be strong, with cornerbacks like LJF Defensive Player of the Year Stephane Rigeux and National Championship Final MVP Mark Kennedy in the lineup.

Group and Schedule

Jaspec have been drawn into the FreedomCola Group. The group is as follows:

Christos (UR)
Drawkland (4)
Champagne Socialist Sharifistan (UR)
Terre Septentrionale (24)
Vangaziland (17)
Jaspec (UR)

Two other teams in the group will be making their debuts in the tournament, and the Jaspecois team will be hoping to pick up wins against them. The other games, including a match-up with world number 4 Drawkland, will be much more difficult. It is expected that the main difficulty for this team will be the ability to adapt their game to the different rules between Jaspecois and international football, namely the number of downs and size of the field. Here is the schedule for Les Bleus:

Matchday 1: Christos vs Jaspec
Matchday 2: Jaspec vs Terre Septentrionale
Matchday 3: Drawkland vs Jaspec
Matchday 4: Jaspec vs Vangaziland
Matchday 5: Champagne Socialist Sharifistan vs Jaspec

Soon, it’s time for football,
by Hannah Rafferty- SS


That’s right sports fans, pretty soon the biggest tournament in football will be starting. Some people might think it’s about to end, but they’d have the wrong tournament. World Bowl 38 will underway soon, and for the second consecutive cycle, our great nation is sending a team. I am glad to be a part of this once again. I have been watching the World Cup, and I was extremely disappointed in the most recent result that had us lose to Eura. Unfortunately, Eura does not give people a chance to get revenge on them in other sports, but I would have loved to had had the opportunity.

World Bowl 38 has very disappointing news right from the start, and that is that there will be no games played in Cassadaigua, or any of the other participating nations. We were a little spoiled by having so many great soccer games played in our country, but it would have been great to have carried on that momentum with the World Bowl. The competition is being hosted by Free Republics, and all of the games will take place on their soil. The format for the competition is not as crazy as World Bowl 37 was, thank goodness, but it is still not a conventional format. There are two separate group stages and then a double elimination playoff round. So tell me, why can’t we just play this tournament with a single group stage and normal playoffs. It is the Free Republics, after all, and they are no stranger to throwing out these formats upon us. Just look at the last World Baseball Classic.

What do the fans think about these varying formats? Do you like them? As a player, I don’t get bogged down in the format when I am out on the field or preparing the game. The goal is always to win the game and do whatever it takes in order to accomplish that. If you are able to do that, you will do well in the format proposed. After all, in that aforementioned World Baseball Classic, we did make the semifinals as a nation. Not as much because of media coverage and all that, but because we did our talking on the field. I know when I tried to follow that Classic, I had a difficult time figuring out what was going on. Casaran formats are for domestic leagues, a video game, or if you doing some fictitious league online and just want to do something a little unconventional. They are not for real life national tournaments like ours!

This is not the same team that took the field in the last World Bowl. Coach Schuster has gone with a younger lineup, and that includes giving Taylor Crimmins a chance to start at quarterback. Offensively, there has been a move to bring her more big play receivers, so that will be good in that regard, but we will have people able to go over in the middle to catch a pass as well. For me, my job is stop the passing game from the other team, and as a secondary, we are mostly the same group of players. In practice, we will work to learn each other’s preferences so that we can succeed as a cohesive unit. We’ll have a few days to that and hope to make this format work for us. I hope you’ll be watching!

Team Tendencies:
The Wolves are a running team that constantly uses play action. Their most used formations are the shotgun, pistol, and singleback. This play style can be a curse, when they are down in the 2nd half, but is a major boost, when in the lead. Their 2nd string running back could be a starter on many other teams. This two headed run attack can go for 300 combined yards at any time. Paul Mitchell, the quarterback, is accurate and mobile, but lacks the arm strength that most professional QBs have. This lack of arm strength is masked by the skilled receivers. Bob DeCarvalo is a tall receiver who doesn’t have the speed to beat cornerbacks, but has the hands and vertical to catch over them. Kemani Collins is the exact opposite. He is a small receiver with the speed to beat most corners. He lacks the skill to catch in traffic.

The defensive side is where they are the most effective. They mostly use the 3-4 formation and play zone with the occasional man blitz. When they are in the five yard line, they use the 46 formation to stop the run at all cost. Head Coach Bobby Knight is known for his tricky defensive plays that can catch even the most seasoned veterans off guard.

Prologue: Striking at the New Hour

No. No! This is wrong! Do they have any clue on what they will do to us all?!

Orwell ran across the empty rain-soaked square, as the nightly downpour had made the streets wet of what Orwell felt was a warning. The streets of Victory Square were empty, expect for the occasional soldier patrolling, though they didn't understand why Orwell was in a hurry. For Orwell's expression wasn't of suspicion, but of fear and panic. He ran pass the "Of Valor and Strength" display that was near the main government building, as a crack of thunder was heard. Orwell went up the small marble stairs to get up to the front doors.

There was no one inside, but the doors were unlocked.

No! NO!!! They already know about that I was going to arrive!

Orwell darted into the lobby. Empty. He needed to get upstairs as fast as possible. He had to stop them.


"He can't do anything more for us."

"I filed for his denunciation. He's already messed up."

"Uhhh...I'm getting something up now? He has been issued an executive order?"

"WHAT?! That piece of shit thinks he can run this nation! Change of plans, kill Orwell immediately!"


"Help me! Someone!" Orwell screamed at the top of his lungs, as he ran through the empty hallways in the middle floors. A towering beast was charging after him. Cloaked in the shadows, it was trained on Orwell. The only human soul in the Ministry, now running for his life, as he was now cornered by the creature, as he ended up in a conference room. The slide projector was still on by a clumsy worker, but the slides were reading off such topics as "Might of the Leader!" and "4 easy steps to push past your workload!" in a font to get people's attention.

Orwell could only end up in front of the room, where the projector shined into his face, illuminating him for the beast to see him in full view. Orwell had the look of terror from his face, as he looked at the monster in front of him. "Please! It's me, Orwell! Snap out of it!" Orwell begged to the monster, as it gotten closer. It wasn't until Orwell showed a strange pattern of scars on his left palm of his hand was when the monster hesitated. "I'm with them! You can't kill me, or they will kill all of your species! They wouldn't stop!" Orwell begged, but he was given a response.

"You're rendered obsolete, my foolish friend." the demon said, as it extended it's teeth and claws for Orwell to see. Orwell was done for. He had did everything to save him and others, but now he has to die for the consequences for his actions. Maybe the sharp teeth and nails wouldn't hurt after all...

The next day...

The Leader woke up in his bed, as he had his emergency phone ringing inside his bedroom. "Ughhh... What now? The World Bowl is happening and we have an international incident in here every time." the Leader complained to himself, as he yawned. Who is it? The Leader grabbed his phone and pressed the call button. "Hello? Who is this?"
"Leader, sir?"
"Jones? What is going on?"
"Sir, I'm with Truman right now. There has been a murder. It happened in your building?"
"My building?" The Leader said, confused.

"My building" is another word for saying, the fancy large building where the Leader gets to sit at his desk and do issues that reach him. Word of a murder in the building isn't anything new to him. However, he could be referring to an unauthorized murder. "Tell Truman he better have an excuse for me to not kick his ass, because I'm not in the mood for this. And make sure there aren't any soldiers in my office, otherwise it counts as unlawful entry." the Leader said, before he hung up his phone and groaning in annoyance. He had to rush breakfast, though he could have a soldier get him Joe's as take out. He got out of his pajamas, as he gotten on his dictator outfit.

He exited his penthouse through the bookcase in his office, where he saw several soldiers outside his doors. "Leader, sir. We were informed of a murder in the building." one of them tells him. "Help me follow the blood." The Leader took them, as a soldier helped the Leader into the elevator.

The murder happened on one of the many middle floors of the building. In a boardroom, now covered and soaked in blood. Truman could only hold his disgust, as he saw the body of Orwell...or what looked like Orwell after it looked like he got mauled to death. The Leader was meeting with Jones outside of the boardroom, before the two of them met up with Truman. "Place looks just like what happened back at Catharsis Plaza.."
"Jones, we agreed that whatever happened there was normal. Sorta."
"Right."
"Truman. Who is our victim? Is it a government worker?"
"Nothing so far. We have to identify our victim by dental records. What we do know is that he's a male, average-aged, brown hair on his severed scalp, an eyeball with a brown iris, a hat, and a severed limb or two." Truman explained to the both of them, as investigators were bagging up body parts. One of them had the scar pattern on the severed left hand.

Jones was the first to start asking questions. "Truman, this looks like the result of a demon attack. Was there the chance of a demon here? Is there evidence from the agency that monitors demon activity that a demon attack happened here. The I.D.A.A it's called?" Jones asked, where I.D.A.A stood for Internal Demonic Activity and Affairs. The Internal Demonic Activity and Affairs are responsible for monitoring the activity of any demon who left hell and any demonic citizens who is currently residing in the nation. "That's the problem, guys.. The I.D.A.A had reported that they had a major shutdown of their surveillance systems last night. It's something that never happened before."
"Wait? So you're saying that the security systems we pull in check to make sure that denizens from Hell don't eat people shut off for several hours?" the Leader asked.
"I know. Something isn't clicking right. A glitch in the system is rare. And this is surveillance we're talking about. Demon attacks are a bit uncommon, but there is technology to prevent it from being frequent. This was something different."
"How about surveillance in the building?"
"It was shut off, also. Same type of shutdown."

"So what you're saying is that we are dealing with a murderer or possibly a demon that managed to create our inter systems to commit murder? But why? What's the motive?"
"We're trying to figure that out, Leader. I'm making sure this guy isn't a foreign official. We're bringing witnesses who were here near the place last night." Truman responded, as both Jones and Leader went outside to the front of the building.

Image

At first, the building (or the Ministry as everyone likes to call it) appeared small, however it was much bigger on the interior. It was a common tourist attraction to stand in front of the building, but it was nothing special for both the Leader and Jones. "Leader. I can't deal with this issue."
"I know that, Jones."
"But I'm concerned about your safety in this."
"I slept through this event, Jones. I don't know why someone would practically be murdered at my workplace. We hold rallies at the main floor. People die there all the time."
"This is an actual murder, though!"
"Jones, we been through stuff a lot. However, this might be just a work of some sort of disgruntled employee. Who is a demon, also but we're burying leads here."
"You think it's just an isolated incident?"
"People have a bad habit of waiting for signs before they appear.."

Emmanuel Jones wished the Leader farewell, as he had to attend to the World Bowl that was happening around this time. The Leader looked back at his building in a bit of discomfort. Something was happening, but he wasn't afraid of what might happen. After all, it is Main Nation Ministry after all.




Death and Taxes: Hostile Resigning

Terry Fitzpatrick was in his living room, adjusting his air conditioning as he helped his mother and father make sure the house wasn't cold. "Son, we need to talk about your fellow girlfriend that you invited at the miner's canteen a few days ago." Terry's father asked her, as he was getting annoyed at being mentioned about his girlfriend. "Father, we discussed this."
"We didn't discuss enough. You can't allow people who aren't miners at the miner's canteen!"
"Father. It was just one day. Many of the other miners allowed their friends at the canteen, anyways."
"Son, you need to listen more to your father. When he was a miner your age, he had to make sure that he provided for this family before you were born." his mother spoke up to her son.
"But don't you still have a job?"
"No, son. I'm retired after the accident." his father explained to him.
"Can't we try to talk about other people more important than me and my girlfriend? What about aunt Estoile who's staying with us for two months or my uncle?"

"Terry!" Terry's aunt Estoile arrived with bandages of plastic surgery, which she believed were the proper looks to have before being a youngling. "Terry, don't be a mean little gazelle, you are a young man who shouldn't lose his job with the simplest of mistakes." Estoile said to him, as he didn't want to admit it. He did need to keep the job. The pay was good, but it was hard enough to work in the mines. "Alright, alright.. I need something to drink. Is Uncle Andy getting beer?"
"Uncle Andy is out at the pub." his father said.
"Right, father.."

It wasn't until Terry and the whole family heard a knocking at the door was when Aunt Estoile went to answer it, while Terry had a thing of chocolate syrup to squirt onto a spoon for fun. Opening it was a man in a neat business suit and a clipboard. "Mr. Fitzpatrick?"
"No, who is this?"
"Mr. Fitzpatrick?"
"I need to ask who are you?"
'Mr. Fitzpatrick.."

Several soldiers were behind the man, getting their rifles ready where Aunt Estoile nearly screamed in nervousness. Aunt Estoile immediately closed the door, not knowing who the people were. She and the whole family got their answer, when someone threw a flashbang through the window, blinding the whole family, where a soldier kicked open the door. In a second, the whole living room and practically, the whole house was covered with soldiers with their rifles trained at the whole family. Terry was suddenly grabbed, as he yelled at the soldiers to let go of him. The man with the business suit entered the house calmly and approached Terry, as he was restrained.

"Mr. Fitzpatrick?"
"Who are you!? What are you doing here!?'
"Mr. Fitzpatrick?"
"Leave my family alone! I can give you money! Please, we won't tell anyone!"
"MR. FITZPATRICK."
"What?!"
"Mr. Fitzpatrick."
"....Yes?" Terry said, not understanding the man.

"Finally. I'm here to inform you that due to a minor inconvenience within our government facilities, you are to be resigned from your occupation as miner from Sector 27 and relocate to Bright City immediately. Due to your overall job skills and experience with help from your government-issued job resume and testimony from your boss, you are to be assigned to be a government employee working in Victory Square at the capital. Your boss has already signed papers to let you go. You are given a release payment of $100,000 chips as a reward for allowing us to re-adjust you to a new occupation. Sign here, please." the man gave Terry a pen, which he signed. "Thank you."

"Now, we will be taking your son with us. He is in no trouble. He is being escorted to his new workplace." the man explained to the family, as Terry gets violently struck from the back of the head by a blunt object, before his unconscious body is dragged out of the house. "You will receive payments for damages caused in several minutes. We will automatically be notified if there is null payment, where we will make sure you will get the money needed." the man explained to the family also, as the man and the soldier left through the burst front door. Uncle Andy finally arrived home to see the mess that the soldiers left behind. "Good cripes! They raided you! Where's Terry, the lad?"

The mother couldn't speak, as she was shell-shocked. The father could only wonder what has happened to his son, while Aunt Estoile was more focused on her face.

"My son is going to the Ministry.."

The Nordic Football Association has announced the roster for the upcoming World Bowl. The coach for the last several editions and the man who introduced football to the Nordics, Matthias Holst, has retired so there is a new look to this team. Longtime Quarterback and fan favorite Leif Beck has taken the reigns of the team and program. The offense is still pass heavy but Beck likes to run the ball a lot more than his predecessor. The defense is still aggressive.

World Bowl 38 - Ko-orenite National Team
Image


Coaching Committees
Offence: Sajerkun Mulestinthen (Wolves), Gyalong Woganure (Emperors), Liam Karneveld (Astronauts), Lyman Rule (Godspeed), Preston Withers (Saints)
Defence: Hypo Bourguignon (Caspians), Pollmodd yFawgaff (Centaurs), Oli Breukelman (65ers), Noah Westerhof (Admirals), Pinoles Mulestinthen (Destroyers)
Special Teams: Sep Nordholt (Dragonflies), Avape Aemenos (Explosions)

Offence
The offence features players that were in excellent form for last season. Instead of going with the best performing individuals across multiple years, the Committees had no trouble selecting younger players that were simply doing very well, regardless of their experience with the system. This has paved the way for Thorebourne and Paterson at running back, and Fineman and Porden as receivers. The offensive line issues that plagued the team at the start of World Bowl 37 have been mitigated as well, with plenty of choices at the tackle positions, a default experienced center, but less choice and less talent at the guard positions.

The offence will change depending on the quarterback running it. Reeman will be given mostly 10, 11, 12 personnel as a static pocket passer. Arerira thrives in higher personnel numbers, 11 as a base, but frequently 21, 20, or even 22, and puts up a run-first show. Sylvestre is the best of both worlds, scrambling to extend plays in any kind of personnel, at the cost of decision-making. Receivers are marked WR or SR for Wide Receiver (implying they operate close to the sideline) and Slot Receiver (closer to the centre of the field).

The offence's formation does not matter, because almost every play can be run from nearly any formation - it's just the role that each player takes on that changes. Trick plays will be used at times: backs that throw, QBs and tackles that receive, but very few trickery behind the line of scrimmage.

RG Larel Norali (26)

RT Adri Couturier (28)

RT Olinosuke Vuluja (23)




Defence
Defenders have also been chosen for their form and confidence in the past season. Moreso than the offence, players are invited to the national team if they're not just punishing and good tacklers, but also students of the game. The Ko-orenite defence is tactical and technical, playing around with movement before the snap, coverages, and confusing quarterbacks above all else.

RE and LE refer to defensive ends and the side they most like to play from. The defence will mostly have a 3-man line, with the LD/RD working as a nose tackle and the RE/LE as run containers. SB and WB (Strong and Weak side backers) are the primary pass rushers, but players like Sparre and Ahern can do it all, with the MB (middle backer) as the pivot. Kinportinden has experience in this position, but all eyes are on Haserin. The secondary is more talented than ever, with Dollen and Mesjathaunden (good for nearly 10 interceptions in the previous World Bowl) in the safety positions, and a much deeper group of cornerbacks than ever before - enough at least for the occasional nickel or dime package.

Defence - Line
LE Leon Ahern (20)
RE Iwane Sugimoto (21)
RE Koji Gamo (29)
LE Hugo Sparre (22)
LD Jorgan Rusadhin (27)

RC Jalu Vigouroux (23)
LC Camille Dutertre (23)
LC Elwood Guillan (23)
RC Aelithage Ecaliris (26)
RC Clinton Dwyer (24)




Special Teams
Special team play always has a special place in Ko-orenite gridiron football. It is taken seriously, it is analysed thoroughly, and with a defence like ours, punting is a weapon. Trick plays are involved every now and again, too. Aecherin (LS) is selected straight from the Salamantic Professors, the Ko-orenite NSCF team that has made waves. Aecherin leaves the 'college' team for the professionals, but hasn't found a pro team yet.

Cornerbacks: Almer Hunter, Edgar "Ed" Duncan, Luis Drake
Safeties: Johnathan Bell, Trae McGuire, Salvatore Wade


Ending the most recent season as Cardo Football League champions, the Chancellors seek to propel Cardo among the titans of international gridiron football. After an 11-7 ending in domestic play, the Chancellors have enjoyed a storybook year, beginning the season as underdogs, much as they do now. Their defensive scheme, created by Coordinator Hugh Arnold is simple: quick, fast and based on a merciless pass rush and a zone coverage. Star free safety Fred Rhodes ended last season as a league leader in interceptions and led the team in open field tackles, stopping upwards of ten potential touchdown drives with his soft hands and fast feet. The offense on the other hand is balanced, often electing to rely on the run game in the opening minutes of a game and then hit with a "foot-on-the-neck" sky approach.

Big 5 Banijan sporting governing bodies hold senior-level executive talks


BUSUKUMA, NATIONAL CAPITOL REGION- There are five major sports governance bodies within the Kingdom of Banija. The Royal Banijan Soccer Association(RBSA), the Olympic Committee of Banija(OCB), The Banijan Commonwealth Games Council(BCGC), the Banijan Hockey Federation(BHF), and the Banijan Collegiate Sports Group(BCSG). The five groups cooperate with each other, of course, regarding things like scheduling, but they generally do not meet with each other on a consistent basis. So when Ousman Kaba, the Executive Chairman of the OCB, had announced that the executives of all 5 Banijan sporting organizations had agreed to meet, it was certainly something that was going to make front page and front line news within, and all across, the Kingdom of Banija.

"While we generally do not hold meetings with each other, we here at the Olympic Committee believe that the Banijan sports movement would be better served through cooperation between our five major bodies. We are seeing Banijans filter out to help run the major international sporting organizations- our very own Kamoyo Chikondi, for example, serves as the Vice President of the World Baseball Council. We have another one of our members serving in a senior role at the World Bowl Assembly, and Adama Sowe, the former RBSA Chairman, serves as the Vice President of the World Cup Committee. Banija has flown up the charts rather quickly- both on the field, where our teams compete for championships across a wide variety of sports, and off the field, where Banijans are rising up the ranks to be powerful figures within their own industries off the field as well."

He paused, and then, continued. "That is a good thing for this country, and a good thing for our sports as we hope to bring more trophies back home to our shores. We just finished our second straight quarterfinal run at the World Cup- that was quite an impressive feat by our boys. But we are not generally here to talk about on the field issues, as that is the competence of organizations individually. We are talking about building Banija as one of the premium places in the world to play sport. We believe that we are getting to that point. We've successfully hosted all three WCC tournaments, an AOCAF, championship tournaments in lacrosse, gridiron, and basketball, among other sports. We want to host this meeting so that we can better discuss the advancement of Banijan talent within these international sporting organizations, help Banijans who want to climb up within the sports industry off the field, and talk about our own skill in hosting tournaments."

The move was surprising, and for those who are observers in the sports business, it will certainly be something that will be interesting to follow. The organizations generally cooperate when it comes to hosting, to obviously ensure that bids from any Banijan organization to host a tournament do not conflict with other bids. Banija has a stunning record of winning host votes in our recent history. But even that story about Banija becoming a good place to hold major tournaments starts in a not so good place- the 66th Baptism of Fire. The RBSA, fresh out of bankruptcy, was eager to show that it was ready for big-time international sporting events. But considering their own recent financial issues at the time, their organization's reputation had taken a hit, and it showed- 13 votes were cast on the first ballot. 5 each went to two of the other competing bids, 1 abstained, and two went to re-open bids. Adama Sowe's aggressiveness and boldness in running the RBSA, of course, was a stunning success since. But that success permeated elsewhere.

Interestingly enough, that was the last time a Banijan host or co-host effort was voted down. We co-hosted the next Baptism of Fire with Qasden, although we were the senior hosts. We co-hosted World Cup 81 and 83. We co-hosted AOCAF LVIII. But it even goes beyond that sport. Everyone else has been getting in on the game as well. We won a bid to co-host the 25th International Basketball Championships. We have won a pair of bids to bring the World Bowl to shore, solo efforts for both World Bowl XXXIV and World Bowl XXXVII(although those were certainly not successes on the field). And don't forget the Cup of Harmony that is currently on Banijan shores. And, of course, a pair of World Lacrosse Championships. That brings us to quite a record- we have won the last 10 bids we have launched to host or co-host a major tournament within Banija. It's quite a record.

Nobody keeps track of that stat, however, so we have no idea how that ranks among other nations. Regardless, considering the level of tournaments we've brought to Banija, it does show that the world believes Banija is a great destination to play its tournaments. So then, the question must be asked- what are they going to talk about when the suits meet in Busukuma?

1. What tournaments to bring next to Banija?

The Kingdom of Banija has seen a variety of tournaments brought to shore in recent years. The next tournaments that we bid on are likely to be tournaments that have not before been played within Banija. It is no secret that the OCB desires to bring the World Baseball Classic to Banija at some point, especially with fan interest in the game growing thanks to the launch of the WBBL, and Banija's championship won at the last World Baseball Classic. They'll obviously need to clear the calendar for that, and while it seems likely they can do that, that is something that they'll want to get backing on before they launch a bid to bring baseball's largest tournament to shore.

Another debate that will be likely hotly discussed will be World Cup 85. It is, of course, a 'major' edition of the tournament- World Cup 85 falling on the 5s and 10s. Considering Banija has co-hosted the last two odd World Cups, there are rumors that the RBSA would very much like to bring the third World Cup in 5 editions to Banija. Even Robel Ezera, the RBSA Chairman, hasn't denied that fact. "Banija has always been a great destination to host the world's biggest tournaments, and it shows that we have brought two World Cups here. Bringing a tournament such as 85 to our shores would be a good thing for us. And we should strive, for the first time ever, to bring a World Cup Final to the Stadium of the Restoration." Of course, competition for World Cup 85 is expected to be fierce- other nations have the same view on what is bound to be a special tournament. Will Banija bid? If they need to make a choice, which one will they make?[/b]

2. Baseball Spinoff- will it happen?

The OCB, originally expected to vote on the creation of an independent sporting agency to govern the sport of baseball, has repeatedly kicked the can down the road on this issue. Ever since they re-established control over gridiron after World Bowl XXXIV, there have been concerns about the viability of an independent baseball organization. There have been prior efforts to make both gridiron and basketball independent in the past, though of course both sports eventually went back to being ran by the OCB. But the Banijan Hockey Federation has been seen as a success- though of course, it has unique factors, including the operation of a professional domestic league that operates via Banijan migrant communities across 12 different countries.

Can baseball follow in those footsteps? The thoughts of the Banijan Hockey Federation are expected to be crucial, in the difficulties of starting your own organization and having to make do on your own. The WBBL has no trouble attracting talent, with Ko-orenite and Hapilopper players expected to play in the league. But without the support of the OCB, they will be much more financially at risk. It was a risk for the Banijan Hockey Federation, but of course, it has panned out great, with the GBHL being well supported by the communities that it plays in, and even though travel costs are extremely high, teams are thought to be financially viable. If they believe that baseball can generate enough money and sustained interest to warrant its own spinoff, and the other orgs there support adding to their number, then expect that to happen soon after the meeting.

3. The BCSG and the Busoga Islands- a confrontation?

The BCSG has been well known for their marked refusal to work with schools from the Busoga Islands. The RBSA has led the way since Islander independence, consistently incorporating Busoga Islander teams into their own domestic league. While that has not happened within the Banijan lacrosse League, it has also happened in the Banijan Gridiron Football League, where a Dukuma side plays within the league. Of course, the Islamic Republic has not joined the Commonwealth, so there isn't much needed for BCGC Commonwealth cooperation, though the BCGC has strived to ensure that Banijans on the Busoga Islands are eligible to compete under the Banijan banner.

But the BCSG has always refused. They've always disallowed Islander Universities to join the BCSG and any organizations underneath it, which is having quite the effect. The other organizations, particularly the RBSA, have said that they are 'quite annoyed' by this refusal from the BCSG. An unnamed source within the RBSA said that the BCSG should 'get off its high horse, get over themselves, and just let Islander schools back into the organization'. They'll be confronted about it- will they be pressured to change their stance? Or will there be no progress on an issue that has dogged them for the last decade and a half?

Many interesting things will happen at this meeting. And it'll be our magazine that is there to cover everything that goes down at those meetings.
