AN's most surprising moment.

Postby Broader Confederate States » Tue Aug 25, 2020 7:48 pm

Whether IC or OOC, the moment you most found yourself caught off guard at some event or fact. Bonus point for every second you were left dumbfounded and/or trying to connect the dots after the fact.

This should go without saying, but please only publicly available information (i.e. stuff they've said/done on NS and associated public forums). This includes RP, factbooks, dispatches, things of that nature. Don't dox anyone.

I'll start with an example:
Valentine Z is a dude?!

>Nation has confederate in name
Hmmmm

>Political compass in factbook, as expected libright
It is typical for neoconfederates to be libertarian right, I know a few myself and they are quite rebellious against authority

>sees how progressive they are, then reads the rest of the factbook
!!! That is no neoconfederate!
Btw, whether you are neoconfed or not doesn't matter to me, so long as we can get along

They've put quite a fair bit of thought into number-crunching an economy of a beefed-up Southern States, along with the demographics of a later 21st Century United States...makes my page about WW2-era strategic bombing seem simple. Back on topic, the social re-arrangements behind later 21st Century race relations in the US has got to be interesting.

Perhaps the entire factbook on the German occupation. I expected a full-length, detailed account on the social and political life of Germans after the war. But even better, we get a comic strip of neko catgirls admiring the view. :clap:

Most surprising moment about AN:

Checks the Alastairs factbook at first time: ''Oh yeah, an another alcoholic leader who's alcoholism will either be a sidenote or be like the entire character and out of realism realm.''

Some time later: ''Wait, it actually portrays really well what toll alcoholism has on a person and those around them, even if they try to stop? It sounds interesting.''

After reading the small news cycle about King's condition: ''Woah, this is actually serious, well done.''
