Founderless Dispatch IV: 20% of Our Board are Raiders

Postby 6ixDaze » Thu May 28, 2020 10:37 am

Hello NationStates,

6ixDaze here. Many of you will know me by my main nation, Falconias. I first started playing NationStates in 2003, 17 years ago, and my activity levels started to dwindle in the middle of the 2010s before I eventually disappeared for good in 2015.

For the past 3 weeks, a few friends and I have been planning a revival of one of this fine game's most beloved & begrudged organizations, the Founderless Region Alliance.

However, we have no intentions of actually reviving the old organization in its past form; instead, we have carried on its spirit in a new form, a singular region unironically called FOUNDERLESS.

Founderless will carry on the mission of the old FRA, and aims to defeat the raiders that continue to wreak havoc across NationStates. We will also continue to be the social home of our old friends & family, with whom I've never really lost touch with. However, our new region will bear a completely different look & feel as well as completely new governance & structure.

We have completed our new Charter, have a live Discord channel, and we are about 90% done our new website & forums which should be live by the beginning of next week.

We have filled 3 spots on our inaugural Board of Directors, besides myself:


If you too would like to get involved, we are seeking a qualified candidate for these roles on our inaugural Board of Directors, who would serve until January 2021, the anticipated date of our first full election:

  • Recruitment Director
  • Foreign Affairs Director
  • Communications Director

To our old friends, we would like to say hello, and hope you're well. To our old enemies, we would also like to say the same! To our new peers, friendly and hostile, we look forward to playing with you.

Cheers to all those that fight for the Founderless,

6ixDaze
Executive Director

We invited Frattastan to take a position on our Board of Directors, but he declined, citing priorities with TRR. He is, however, one of a few old FRA members that we are granting automatic full membership status to (Confederacy status - more on that to come when we make our website/Charter/etc public.)

I'll give myself til the end of the weekend before I'm impeached.

Zeritae wrote:Can we call this the New FRA?

We are the spiritual successor of the FRA, but we consider ourselves a different entity as our structure will be dramatically different as a region as opposed to an organization, but I imagine people will still call us the FRA anyways as it's several less letters. :P

hmmmmmmm! I see the founderless region alliance has gone through a cosmetic makeover. No surprise, they are still up to their old tricks in invading regions and replacing natives with their own puppets. The bad chamber has become the refurbished chamber, which is STILL BAD!

The region of Omashu has a rich history of being occupied, and overcoming those occupations. We were stolen by Chin the Conqueror but rose up. We were conquered by the Fire Nation (oops guess that was kinda my fault hahaha), but when the gong of opportunity rang out we threw off our oppressors. We were raided by Fire Nation descendants from Lily and The Black Hawks, and we threw off those chains as well. Now, our natural Earth Kingdom allies (defenders) have turned their back on us, and sacked Omashu.

Messages to your generals have been ignored, so let me say this to all: none are safe so long as The Founderless Region Alliance, The Rejected Realms, and The South Pacific turn their back on freedom. Any region could be the next Omashu. I urge all regions to stay vigilant, or they may, ahem, "pre-preemptively" defend you by invading as well.

A good question, but FRAvision was always open to everyone (just as the current iteration is) and whilst there are plenty of things for us to fight over IC, I don't think a good natured, inclusive and fun event like that is one of them. If we ever need to pick up the torch I am sure we would be more than willing.

For what it worth, we contacted the the best remnant of the FRA available to us, prior to initially adopting the orphaned event :) Former Arch Chancellor Wopruthian gave his approval to adapt content including the concept and rules, on the condition that the heritage/inspiration coming from FRA was explicitly acknowledged - as it still is in the handbook today.

I would hope that, as expressed alresdy here, no one feels the need to do anything silly like "take back" an event that was abandoned, found a new home, and is thriving there. But hey, if we ever hit a snag, I too would hope someone steps in to keep it alive once more!

Well Karp had been dispatched undercover to win the competition with his stirring rendition of "The Teddy Bears' Picnic" (complete with teddy bear outfit), thus allowing him to choose Founderless as next year's host, but that plan was busted.

As a backup, Falc's been nominated to don his sequined jumpsuit and give us his best Elton impersonation with "I'm Still Standing", the thought being that no-one will want to host (or attend) another RaiderVision after that monstrosity.
