Welcome to Quebec and Shingoryeo!


Transportation

To arrive in Quebec you'll likely just want to fly in to the city that you will be playing in. While Halifax International Airport is one of the six major gateways to Quebec, Bathurst International Airport has limited flights available outside of Quebec and its neighbouring nations in Anaia, which mean that it may be better for you to fly via Quebec City on a domestic flight, or take the high-speed VELO from Quebec City or Halifax.

While travelling inside country, there are main methods you can use for this. Various levels of services exist per speed, route and also the overnight availability (this option remains very popular in Quebec), and they are also extremely punctual/on-timerelatively punctual compared to other methods (one or two-hour delays are better than what you'd get in other options, with this bad of a weather), popularcramped (best option out of any right now) and frequent (one train per 30 minutes, with more coming due to demand), making it a very cost-effective and attractive option. Even with such situations the services in Quebec National Railways (QNR) are high-quality and well-maintained, so don't worry about your comfort while riding trains.

As for Bathurst-Halifax services, both cities are connected to one another by train service once every two hours:
  • VELO - High Speed Rail - 1:40-2:05 - 7x Daily between Quebec City Reneegrad and Halifax Bujeon via Bathurst
  • MACH - Medium-Speed Service, Daytime services - 3:30-4:00 - 8x Daily between Quebec City Reneegrad and Halifax Bujeon via Bathurst
  • Nightstar - Medium-Speed Service, Nighttime services - 5:00-5:30 - 2x Daily between Quebec City Reneegrad and Halifax Bujeon via Bathurst


Languages

There are three official languages in this nation: English, French and Korean. All 3 languages are taught in school curriculum and with great depth, causing most of the population to be at least trilingual. Additionally, in this part of the nation there are some other First Nations languages being recognised as regional languages and are used+learned to great depth in schools, so please note this when you're RPing in Quebec. Most Quebecois you'll meet are at least fluent in two of the languages and that will show with way they speak.

Money

The national currency of Quebec is Quebecois Pound, with the exchange rate of $2 NS for 1 Quebecois pound. With the nation being rich with huge economy, almost everyone will have at least has a good deal of money here. So please don't feel surprised if the products are much more expensive here than back home, excluding alcohol and certainly marijuana.

Things you'll need in your stay, prices in NS Dollars (NS$) and Quebecois Pound (Q)

- Hotel: NS$50-400, Q$25-200
- Public transport in both cities: NS$2-6, Q1-3
- An one-way ticket between Montreal and Quebec City: NS$8-40, Q4-20
- Average cost of food: NS$6-34, Q3-17
- Sports tickets: NS$40-600, Q20-250
- Bottle of water: NS$8, Q4 (Sale of bottled water itself is extremely limited, with public fountains providing very low interest for the people)
- Alcohol: NS$10-100, Q5-50 per keg
- Public phone: NS$2 per 5-minute call, Q1 per call


Cuisine

Quebecois cuisine has evolved through centuries of social and political change. Originating from dominant Korean and elegant French cuisine that came with settlers, as well as materials and existing food of the First Nations living in the area, Quebecois cuisine has evolved through a complex interaction of the natural environment and different cultural trends and is the best mix of it all.

Quebecois cuisine is largely based upon rice, other diverse kinds of grains, vegetables, and meats(in this area moose and caribou, and to rare cases bears). The meals are noted for the number of side dishes (banchan) that accompany steam-cooked short-grain rice. It varies on the personal preferences but often in every meal they eat at least some form of maple syrup, Kimchi and/or bread. Commonly used ingredients include sesame oil, doenjang (fermented bean paste), soy sauce, salt, garlic, ginger, pepper flakes and gochujang (fermented red chili paste). In this part of the nation, fish are caught off the rivers and lakes to be eaten in whatever the way one prefers as well.

Ingredients and dishes vary by region to region, with many. Many regional dishes have become national, and dishes that were once regional have proliferated in different variations across the country. Meals are regulated by cultural etiquette, which are very hard to follow for even the average Quebecois due to all the processes they take.

Feel free to ask me for any questions if you have any in mind.

Religion

Quebec is a religiously diverse country, though divided when it comes to dominant regions. In the cities where the World Cup of Hockey will be hosted, First Nations' religions are widely practiced, with Quebecois Catholic Church and Buddhism right behind. Due to these differences, all three levels of Government keeps some separation from any religions, though they still hold some influences in those levels and receive lots of funding. It is also not recommended to argue about politics or religion in Quebec, as political and religious apathy is not really a thing for the Quebecois people.

Laws

Culturally and socially, Quebec is in bit of a mix. Another handy chart will be in place to explain some of Quebec's laws in place:

Recreational drugs: Legal, though selling them without a provincial licence can lead to up to $10,000 in fines and 5 years in jail.
Hard drugs: Illegal, with punishments up to $50,000 in fines and 5 years in jail for possession and consumption of the drugs.
Prostitution: Legal. People won't be talking about it, but will nod along. That said, any form of human trafficking involved will come up with minimum 25 years of jail time.
Pornography: Legal, aside from child pornography (applies to any pornographic videos or anything else starring people up to 18 years of age). Possession of child pornography will land you straight in jail for 7 years, while production and distribution of it can lead to potential death sentence. So, don't try it as it's a big no-no.
Legal age for tobacco: 18
Legal age for alcohol: 14
Maximum BAC to drive: 0.03.
Saying the word 'Coconut': Legal


All the foreign citizens caught under the Federal and/or Provincial law will not be extradited, unless of a special order given by Christine II and the Prime Minister.



Host Clusters

The Ministry of Sport and Recreation, as well as its internal body, the Imperial Sporting Council, has recently shifted from a nationwide to regional-based hosting system on the international tournaments hosted in Quebec and Shingoryeo, to promote easier, more environmentally-friendly travel, as well as fostering regional interest in a sport of concern.

Thus, in a bid proposed by the Acadie province and the Royal Quebecois Volleyball Federation, there will be two city clusters for the group stage, followed by the knockout round in the third city cluster, to be OOCly released before the MD10-11 cutoff. All three will be located in the Acadie province, the largest Quebecois province outside of the two metropoles in Montreal (Montreal) and Quebec City (Capitale-Nationale).

Group A - Bathurst

The Group A, which includes the hosts Quebec and Shingoryeo, and the top ranked HUElavia, will be centred on the historic city of Bathurst. Wildly considered as the midway point between Quebec City, the nation's capital, and Halifax, the third largest-city with strong economy and industry, it also connects the industrial southern half of Acadie and agricultural Saguenay province on the northeast of the country. It is generally viewed as the centre of the Acadie province's less developed, mountainous and more traditional northern half, and has leaned more conservative (small-c-lettered, mind you) in past. The powerful presence of Quebecois aristocracy, as well as the landed gentry, often means that their political and economic representation have gone somewhat back and forth in the contemporary period.

Having served as the provincial capital until 1868, Bathurst is traditionally associated with its status as the regional centre in almost every capacity, with its relative prosperity and modernity attributed to the industries it were able to keep. Economically it still holds a lot of its stakes to agriculture and fishing, with by the Gonyang Plains to its direct west (some bordering and within Gaspesie province), and the fishing villages to its east (and if you cross the bay from the Plains, Gaspesie), even as the largest employers are the Quebecois Government, the Royal Quebecois Air Force and museums. Centred by historical buildings that house those institutions, as well as its three universities, including Mount Ester University, one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the country, and many secondary and other post-secondary institutions that attract students from all over the province, Bathurst has survived the past waves of economic stagnation in the region and emerged a stronger city.

Due to its relative distance from the largest cities, as well as the social climate of the region, Bathurst is a relatively homogenous city in terms of demographics, with most of the ethnic minorities coming from those of the Quebecois Commonwealth and/or their time as students. Greater concern does come from the language dynamics in the city, where the aristocracy and the middle class tend to be English and Korean-language speakers, and likewise with those to the west of the city's boundaries, while those east of city's borders are primarily French speakers with greater disgruntlements. Otherwise, the city has stayed relatively quiet, conflict-free and peaceful, with the key focus lying upon rural affairs and the much-opposed development of its suburbs. The residents are often proud of their city and may identify closer to Quebec City than Halifax, due to the great three-way divide inherent in the province.

1. Hersey Centre (Capacity: 13,450)

Just two squares walk from the QNR station and the City Hall lies the Hersey Arena. Sponsored by the Hersey Investment Group based here, it is located in the city's Downtown, which has stayed quaint and charming even as the city continues to evolve. The Downtown residents, usually of Middle Class or the Mount Ester students, are usually known to be snobbish, early-adaptors with particular attachment to local sports teams. The multipurpose arena, built twenty years ago for the QOVO-women's team Drillers and QBL team Spurs, is two-year olds with two dozen boxes on the top floor, and a local sports museum attached to it.

2. Norman Williams Arena (Capacity: 10,890)

The defending Quebecois men's collegiate champions (and the women's powerhouse), the Mount Ester University Lancers, call this gigantic arena home. Built by the alumni donations in year 1954, the Williams is consistently renovated with latest, state-of-arts features to welcome the university students and local fans who would come here to watch the Lancers basketball and volleyball matches. It is located in middle of the Mount Ester University campus, mostly known for its redstone buildings, situated on the Southern half of the city, and the fans and the locals usually spend a great deal of time available for nightlife or food in the University District as well.

3. Ssangye Arena (Capacity: 5,680)

Ssangye is a small city located about thirty minutes drive or twenty minutes train ride just west of Bathurst. While a small city of 45,000, Ssangye is an inland city known for its mountains, small villages draped across the boundaries, and the neverending rice paddy layers over the rolling hills, and its own reputation in volleyball. Ssangye Arena, while usually for the Ssangye College, a local liberal arts college, as well as the Bathurst Board of Education, is a decently-sized arena eligible for IBC and VWE regulation matches, and is selected for that purpose. The arena, home to occasional youth national teams' training, too shares a long history of national team and professional alumni coming from the city, and its intimate atmosphere with banners reflect such. Outside the arena, there is a beautiful flowers festival that's renowned across Quebec and Shingoryeo, so if you are curious to enjoy the late-May vibes, this time of the year may be the best time to do so.

Group B - Halifax

The Group B, which hosts the defending champions Mytanija and the finalist Cassadaigua, will be based in Halifax (Population: 2,130,800), the capital of Acadie Province and the largest port city in the Southeastern Quebec. Due to its significance as the historical entry point of immigrants entering Quebec until 1950s, as well as the maritime of the city's industries, Halifax has stood as one of the most defining cities of the country. Perhaps this is of nobody's surprise that the denonyms, Haligonians, carry an implied meaning of hot-headed, leading person in a group, or that much of the country's countercultural arts and culture scene began there before eventually becoming mainstream in Montreal or Quebec City.

Gifted by its location and history of leading the charge in the Quebecois Industrial Revolution two to three centuries ago, Halifax has set itself in an unique blend of nation's histories forming layers after layers into one. Built in year 1612 as a trading outpost right next to the newly-built Royal Quebecois Navy Base, Halifax is a port city with longstanding history of light and heavy industries that continue to this day.

From the old factories on the western end with products set for exports and the suburbs to the inner half of the city, the rest of Halifax is largely maritime, with its City Centre containing historical buildings of the bourgeoisie on the west, and the seafood and agricultural markets, restaurants and business towers on the east end, as well as well as old districts built into the hills and the mountains all over them. To the east of City Centre, Halifax has Leith, the centre of its Schottian population originally of working class origin, as well as the famed Eastern Beaches where much of the city's younger population have been heading.

Traditionally, Halifax has been one of three major battlegrounds in Quebecois politics. Due to the city's odd coexistence of many colours, whether it be its mountainous shantytowns located near the wester half of the Downtown, or the increasing tensions between Leith and the Eastern Beaches, it has become even more of the litmus test for the Quebecois public. It was one of four major cities where the centre-left Parti Justice et Liberal du Quebec (PJLQ), led by the charismatic Prime Minister Arsene Kim, had made major gains, winning nine seats to the shock of then-incumbent NPD or then-opponent BQ, whose grip on the city was not lost, but taken some hit.

1. The Acadium (Capacity: 20,854)

The usual number one choice for arenas in Halifax, The Acadium is a multipurpose arena that is home to the QHL team Halifax Tempest, the QWBL team Halifax Sun, and also hosts occasional Quebecois national team matches for both basketball and volleyball. Built almost fifty years ago for the 2002 Quebecois Commonwealth Games hosted in Halifax, it was rebuilt from a gigantic white-domed structure to a grey rectangular cube with comfortable seating and all the needed facilities and overpriced refreshments for the fans to enjoy. Nearby the arena, there is Sajik Park, home to Haligonian's IFCF and Coupe du Roi matches, the Commonwealth Games Park that contains the venues from the 2002 Games, and the Giants' Park, home to the cursed QBO franchise that is Halifax Giants.

2. ​O'Neill Arena (Capacity: 9,640)

Leith's an unique situation. Built on the southeastern tip of the Bay where the Maybin Shipyards and OB Heavy Industries & Construction is located, Leith has long established itself as the mini-Schottia within Quebec. The 380,000 locals there hail their ancestry to the Schottian immigrants who immigrated to Quebec in search of better lives in late 1800s, and found themselves welcomed to the industrial workforce in the area that had needed as many hands as possible. While most of its inhabitants have become Quebecified, and speak largely in the Southeastern dialect of Quebecois Korean language, they retain their heritage in various aspects, one of them being Haligonian Football Club located just 5 minutes walk away. The local arena, named after the women's national team legend Mara O'Neill, was recently renovated for the use of the women's QOVO team Halifax Antebellum, and is in fit shape to host VWE-IVF tournament matches.

3. Seunghakpo Pavilion (Capacity: 4,580)

If you are looking for a quieter area to enjoy the beaches Halifax is known for, Seunghakdo, the beach located on the southwestern end of Halifax, the may be the right place to do so. Dotted by small, numerous houses in dense layers across the beach, the cinematic views and less crowd on the area (most of those not local would usually pick the ones on Leith or East End) mean that plenty of film shootings and locals would be found here. An old, community arena built back in the 1970s, Seunghakpo Pavilion went through a couple of renovations in recent years to be able to host VWE or IBC games when needed.

Feline Roster for the 12th Volleyball World Expo


Volleyball in Felinetopia is quite popular as both the male's and female's tournaments consistently fill up arenas in the feline world. In the most recent championship, The Tiger Territory beat the Cheetah Republic in a 5-set thriller. However, no tigers are represented on the Felinetopian roster as the Tiger Territory has not joined the Union of Felinetopia yet. Felines do play with a different ball made to be durable against claws. This will be the first multiversal athletic sports competition that the Felinetopian Sporting Council will be sending a team to. They wish all teams at the Volleyball World Expo good luck and health and to cheer on the felines!

Bollonischian National Volleyball Team

Bollonischian Volleyball Union


Volleyball in Bollonich was a large number of years was a sport not present in the common eye, however received a healthy amount of participants. The hierarchy of sports in Bollonich with Football and Cricket at the top was something the populace and sportspeople had taken into account already and didn’t seem to want to change this. Recently the formation of the Bollonischian Handball Cup and the Bollonischian Handball Federation propelled the popularity of handball in Bollonich. Following the success of the 23rd Handball co-hosted by Bollonich, led the Bollonich Sporting Federation along with the Bollonischian Olympic Committee to create the Bollonischian Volleyball Union to oversee the development of Volleyball as a sport and the Volleyball League. The National Volleyball team have been taken from the various franchises taking part in the Bollonischian Volleyball League. The Franchises are the exact ones that are present in the Handball League with different Volleyball Squads.

MYTANIJA SQUAD FOR VOLLEYBALL WORLD EXPO 12

Radina Ristic has named her squad for the 12th Volleyball World Expo as Mytanija look to defend their title this time around. Ristic has had the luxury of being able to return twelve of her team from the run to the championship, with only three newcomers named among her fifteen-woman strong squad. One of the players she has had to replace is the team's captain and veteran libero Nevzeta Majstorovic, so often the team's motivational speaker and lucky charm, she is now 38 and her career is beginning to wind down. The move is slightly controversial back home though as she showed no signs of that purported slowing as she drove her team to a runners-up spot in the MOF Top League domestically, challenging for the title for the whole campaign and only pipped to it by the all-conquering Litala ’93 by a single match. Many supporters would be much happier if they could see Majstorovic's name in the squad. Zumreta Kapilovic - Majstorovic's colleague at Olympic Thessia - is another veteran who misses out despite solid form domestically as Ristic looks for a younger age profile across the squad.

Radina Ristic has decreed that the team have to refresh where possible and that is possibly why she has introduced the Avnalia Odbojka libero Oana Asenova to the squad. Asenova has tough competition from other young players at the position like Atletik's Devleta Besic and OK Rauchnya's Anusa Kaluza, but she was picked ahead of them for her lightning fast reactions and on-court awareness. Mytanija's chances of going back-to-back could be dependent on just how well Asenova takes over from Majstorovic at a key position. Amalija Kolar has taken over the captaincy, the 28 year old was crucial in all phases of play for Mytanija last time out and demonstrated strong motivational and organisational ability. Milka Marovic may be slightly disappointed to still only be vice-captain, but she will be on hand to provide plenty of experience despite not quite getting the promotion she might have been expecting to receive with Majstorovic not being selected. There isn't expected to be any tension as a result of this decision but it may be a storyline to follow throughout the tournament.

In terms of other newcomers to the squad - apart from Asenova - we have another fine player from the Avnalia talent factory in 22 year old setter Tamara Duleva as well as the 23 year old opposite hitter Alenka Kokot. Kokot has long been mooted as a potential superstar back home after coming through the ranks at OK Rauchnya, this could be a real breakout tournament for her as she is expected to be a first choice selection ahead of Kostenceva and Brajdic who were in the squad last time. Other big name talents which are returning include Mira Gushtanova, the team's leading point scorer on the way to the world title; Sara Gemac, a middle blocker with plenty of length at the net who excels in all phases of play; and Milena Spasojevic, a player who hasn't been in the best form in the MOF Top League but has justified her selection based on her history of performing well for the national team. Radina Ristic will hope Spasojevic can affect games from the bench as much as she did at VWE 11.

There will be a lot of rotation in this team and whilst the players listed first at each position (and first two MBs) will generally be those who play the most minutes Ristic will give everyone plenty of playing time, domestically the sport is viewed very much as a team game and players are rotated regularly and this will continue with the national team. Volleyball is the number one sport among Mytanar women and is extremely well supported, domestic games draw large crowds and receive the same treatment as football games with regard to the presence of ultras and the sort of atmosphere they create within the stadium. It is also pretty lucrative, with the best players receiving salaries which are on a par with the sort of money a good Mytanar Top League footballer would be paid. Indeed, the best players even draw comparable transfer fees to some footballers - Mira Gushtanova was signed by Litala ’93 from Avnalia Odbojka for a domestic record fee of MC 1.25 million/NSD 420,000 - further demonstrating the importance of the sport within Mytanija.

Normally, the talk among the Sarzonian national volleyball team camp would be about expectations, and the sudden thrust of them onto the team.

The team made a shock run to the semifinals of the ninth Volleyball World Expo in Cassadaigua, and spirits were riding high heading into the 10th edition. Then Taeshan announced their intent to host the tournament. In the wake of objections by several Sarzonian governing bodies to the prospect of Taeshan hosting anything, Sarzonia's volleyball leadership opted not to send a team at all. Then the Stars made an appearance in the next edition, pulling off not only a shock appearance in the knockout rounds, but a massive upset of the heavily favoured top seeds in the Round of 16.

However, there was a lot more on the team's plate than talk about whether they should deal with the spectre of expectations. There was the whole matter of Quebecois-Sarzonian relations in the wake of the Anaian split that threatened to rip apart Atlantian Oceania, a region Sarzonia has been part of almost since its very inception. There was the fact that the Sarzonian governing body convinced President Haffner of the importance of sporting diplomacy by sending a team to Quebec and Shingoryeo. There was his subsequent missive to Health and Athletics and to the External Affairs Department to allow Sarzonia to compete in the World Volleyball Expo.

Manager Alan Ryan said he was going to direct his team to not get involved in the political ramifications of a Sarzonian team playing in Quebec and Shingoryeo.

"That's something completely out of my pay grade," he said. "I've still got a couple of players who are dealing with final projects and the like, so they really can't afford to get into the whole mess of geopolitics."

The decision by Haffner to personally authorise the team to compete in Halifax may have rankled some of the louder anti-Anaian voices, but the fact that Atlantian Oceania stalwarts -- and multi-sport Sarzonia rivals -- Banija were also in Halifax was seen as a major help to the Stars contingent. Even so, Sarzonia will begin the tournament with a match against Græntfjall, but the Banijans are up next. Perennial powers Cassadaigua, Kohnhead and Siovanija and Teusland are the three top-five teams in the Halifax cluster. The other teams are Mytanija, emergent multi-sport rivals Abanhfleft, Recuecn, Hebitaka, Malandrin, and Felinetopia.

"We can't afford to be distracted by the Banija match," Ryan said, making clear that he was already planning his "trap match" speech for that match and for the Malandrin contest just before the Stars face Cassadaigua.

"There's a lot of work to be done," he said. "And that's just talking about the volleyball."

The Karvian Chronicle

Drawn against HUElavia and Baker Park; VWE 12 Group Draw

Volleyball as a sport has been on the rise in Bollonich following what were innumerable changes made to the structure of how volleyball is run in Bollonich following the grand success of the 23rd Handball World Cup which was hosted by Bollonich which had a great reception by sporting fans. Hence as a part of the developmental process of volleyball, The newly formed Bollonischian Volleyball Union shall be sending a team to take part in the 12th iteration of the Volleyball World Expo. The 12th VWE being hosted by Quebec and Shingoryeo will be contested by 24 teams divided into 2 groups of 12 from where the top 4 teams make it to the quarterfinals. Bollonich has been drawn into Group A along with some exemplary volleyball teams such as HUElavia, Commonwealth of Baker Park, the hosts Quebec and Shingoryeo and many such notable teams. We also have strong teams such as Chromatika, Hispanis and Permecutan. These are all teams against who winning would be a great challenge one we would have to give our heart and sole into to overcome. HUElavia is the 1st ranked team in the world who shall be the main contenders for the title with Baker Park and Quebec and Shingoryeo fighting for qualification. Bollonich will have a jam-packed schedule as we start off with a match against the Commonwealth of Baker Park, a team where our Lacrossee Team had massive success two years back in their first World Lacrosse Championship. Facing off against the 4th ranked team in the world won’t be easy and we would need to be at our complete best if we wish to have a slight chance of winning.

The Maihar Derby Heats Up, Marda Frogs take the lead, Torrijas Wizards winless; Bollonischian Volleyball League Matchdays 1-3 Round up

The Bollonischian Volleyball League, Bollonich’s Premier Volleyball League is completely held in Vreton’s Vreton City State Indoor stadium ahead of the Volleyball World Expo as a method to raise interest and also to earn a quick buck for the franchise owners through lavish deals and contracts. In the end the BVL is similar to the Bollonischian Handball League in most regards as the franchises participating are the same following a closed format with ten teams participating in a double round robin with the top 4 advancing to the knockouts. The BVL is the platform for most Bollonischian players taking part in the VWE who have earned experience and a solid reputation in Bollonich itself. It will however be interesting to see whether they can repeat their feats in international competitions.
The first matochday started off the BVL season with some interesting matchups such as the game between Maihar Lions and Maihar Warriors also known as the Maihar Derby. The Maihar Derby was a solid games and for Neutral Vretonians in the stand it was a pleasure to watch this specific game as the game took 5 sets to finish with Maihar Lions and Maihar Warriors winning alternate sets until finally Maihar Lions won the game winning the final set 15-13. Another fabulous match up was the match between the Kings of Fermont and San Pablo Rockers which is the end over the period of 5 sets was won by Kings of Fermont as they beat San Pablo Rockers 15-12 in the final set. Karvian Tigers, Vreton Bulls and the Marda Frogs took to the top of the table as they had comfortably dispatched of their opponents winning the game in 3 sets.
Matchday 2 of the BVL also kicked off in similar fashion with the first match between Maihar Warriors and Vreton Bulls, a competitive match was what was expected and that is what was delivered. The match begun in an extremely positive sense for the Warriors as they won the first two sets 25-21. Vreton Bulls however attempted to strike a comeback, winning the third set through the heroics of 38 year old Edmund Timberlake. However Edmund’s heroics failed to save Vreton Bulls that game as Maihar Warriors cam back to win the 4th set winning the game. In the meantime, Marda Frogs had risen to the top after winning a game against Maihar Lions which they comfortably won in 3 sets. Following matochday 2 only two teams had perfect records being Kings of Fermont and the Marda Frogs.
Matchday 3 played witness to something we hadn’t seen yet, surprisingly the Marda Frogs had lost a set, however easily coming back to defeat Maihar Warriors. Torrijas Wizards recorded their 3rd straight defeat after a five set thriller against Lagos Yetis who managed to record their first win in the competition. The Karvian Tigers and San Pablo Rockers also managed to win their respective games going higher up in the table as both teams stood at 2 wins. After 3 match days only one team the Marda Frogs stood at 3 wins out of 3 earning them a well deserved advantage which could easily be diminished in the following games to come as it is a large season

In the Purrlin Multiversal Airport conference room

Bump Daffon: Good morning... Before I answer any questions, I‘ll confirm that everyone listed on the roster fur the Volleyball World Expo are all ready and healthy to travel to Quebec and Shingoryeo. Additionally, leopards from the Leopard Dominion will be joining us to help us practice fur the tournament. I will now be taking questions.

Felix of The Cateroon. What do you expect from the leopard’s help?
BD: I have decent expectations fur the leopards. They have been competitive at the last couple of Feline Volleyball Cups so they should be capable of preparing us fur the Expo. Additionally, I hope that the team bonds well with these leopards. As you know, the Leopard Dominion is in the process of joining the Union of Felinetopia. So eventually, some of these leopards will be a part of this team in the future.

Kanya of the Furbanks Post. This will be the first time that Felinetopia has sent a team to a multiversal sporting event. Do you think this will be a significant event for Felines?
BD: First, this is not the first team sent to a multiversal sporting event as the cricket team in the communist era was the first team to be sent to a multiversal sporting competition. We also have our chess team being sent to New Soutlandia fur the Elephant Chess Cup at the same time as we’re heading to the Expo. Now to answer the question, this will probably be a major event for the union as many Felines do love their volleyball. I hope our team doesn’t disappoint.

Airme of Cat Sports. The first game is against Cassadaigua, the 2nd best team in the competition. How do you prepare your cats for this match?
BD: Quite frankly, I only got the film from the games at the previous Expo today so we will be reviewing the film on our trip over to Quebec. But we will also make sure that we are well-rested before the match as we have only scheduled a morning practice the day before the match. Cassadaigua is an excellent opponent who was the finalist at the last Expo so this will be an excellent test for our team.

Thor of The Spike. With how popular the sport is in the Feline world, fans’ expectations are high. How will you handle this pressure?

BD: Well, this is the first time in a while that Felines have stepped into the multiverse. We’re not sure how our cats will match up against other teams in the multiverse. So please understand that we may not reach some of our fans’ expectations of advancing to the knockout rounds. But that doesn’t mean that we won’t try our hardest to win every match in the Expo.

Zigsby of the Feline Times. Quebec and Shingoryeo is a part of Anaia who recently seceded from Atlantian Oceania. Do you want to weigh on this situation?
BD: I am not here to spark a diplomatic incident on Felinetopia’s return to the multiverse. So, no.

New Faces and a New Expectation

HUElavia enter the World Volleyball Expo as the best ranked team and with possibilities of a deep run.


For the third consecutive time in HUElavian Volleyball history, the National Volleyball team is participating in the World Volleyball Expo. The two previous appearances have had deep runs for the ladies, meaning the team is #1 in the rankings and looking to win in Quebec and Shingoryeo. The team is in Group A with the likes of Commonwealth of Baker Park (4), Quebec and Shingoryeo (6), Kriegiersien (10), Hispinas (15), Permecutan (19), Chromatika (25), Nagore (T-35), Natanians and Nosts (T-35), Srednjaci (50), Bollonich (UR), and Raspotochje (UR).

Bathurst will be the host city, with the matches being played at Bathurst-Gaspesie Cluster, playing between Hersey Centre (13,450), Norman Williams Arena (10,890), and Ssangye Arena (5,680). HUElavians are flocking to Quebec and Shingoryeo, a nation the fans are familiar with, as they look to cheer on the ladies in what can be a fun and enjoyable tournament, and maybe a possible title is in the cards for the team. The ladies are training hard and studying film for this tournament.

FORCA HUELAVIA! VAMOS HUELAVIA! GO HUELAVIA!

Quebec and Shingoryeo Men's and Women's National Volleyball Teams - VWE 12

Image
Quebecois national team jersey, made by Lisanderian kit maker Neo


The Royal Quebecois Volleyball Federation (RQVF), in continuation of its practice also shared by Basketball Quebec (BQ) and Royal Quebecois Football Association (RQFA), is proud to continue its practice of sending mixed teams with expanded rosters to international competitions, even as the QOVO's men's and women's league remain gender-separated. In regards to their opponents' preferences to play the men, women or mixed teams, RQVF will remain flexible in advanced consultation with their opponents (OOC note: Really up to you, feel free to TG/DM me if you have specific questions or suggestions).

Quebecois Volleyball in Nutshell


Alongside (ice) hockey and basketball, Volleyball's considered one of the three indoor jewels of the Quebecois winter sports. It is one of few countries in the Multiverse where both men's and women's indoor volleyball have remained highly popular, and the QOVO sees fairly even television ratings and attendance figures among both sides.

Part of what enables the consistent rating is much to do with the communal origins of Quebecois volleyball, where the collegiate programs set up excellent foundation for the local teams to pick their first round (run as territorial selections, working no differently than what QBO does with baseball), and this means that families would grow up cheering for their region's teams. Usually the men's and women's divisions have a team in each of its major regions, but not necessarily in the same city unless it's Montreal (Montreal Koreana) or Quebec City (CSKA Quebec), so there exists less competition within the same market. The QOVO has 12 teams on both men's and women's divisions, and the minor division for prospects/second-teamers, which does allow for a solid talent pool to stay established.

At the national team level, the Quebecois national teams have become one of the most dominant and consistent forces in the history of olympic men's volleyball. The Quebecois men have qualified for 4 consecutive quarterfinals in all four olympics they have played, including a bronze in Centralis-Nassau Games and a silver in Novonaya-Provinsk games, while the Quebecois women have won two golds with dominant performance in Centralis-Nassau and Novonaya-Provinsk Games, as well as a bronze medal in Istria-Orean Games. With majority of both national teams back in action, it is safe to expect strong performance from the Grim Reapers once more.

TOUGH GROUP DRAW FOR MYTANIJA
GROUP B CONTAINS THREE OF THE FOUR SEMI-FINALISTS FROM VWE 11


by Almedina Radovanovic

Mytanija return to the Volleyball World Expo as world champions after entering the tournament and winning it on debut with a team stocked full of the country’s best domestic talent. Radina Ristic might have thought she would have little to fear from the competition as she has been able to return 12 players from the championship winning squad, introducing only three new faces, but the group draw had other ideas. Group B is loaded from top to bottom, with three of the four semi-finalists from the previous edition of the VWE in Mytanija, Cassadaigua and Kohnhead as well as a top-five ranked nation in the form of Siovanija and Teusland. After that come some of the best multi-sport competitors in the form of Abanhfleft and Sarzonia, whilst Banija and our Rushmori neighbours Græntfjall represent some of the finest potential rising talents in multiversal volleyball. Ristic did not give anything away when interviewed: “these opponents will challenge us and get us up to speed quickly”, but she could be forgiven for perhaps preferring to have been drawn in Group A.

Despite winning the world championship last time around, Mytanija enter the tournament ranked only 7th and this may rankle ever so slightly. It’s a position that the Mytanar team will want to improve by demonstrating that their fairy-tale success in VWE 11 wasn’t a one-off. It is a team which is determined to try and repeat the feat and create a little piece of history in the sport of volleyball as a result. They will have to do it without winning captain Nevzeta Majstorovic after Radina Ristic decided that she wanted to move the team’s age profile slightly younger. It could be a huge decision, the ramifications of which we will not know until we see how the team perform without the now 38 year old libero. The question will be just how much will the team miss Majstorovic’s experience? Ristic only has two players over the age of 30 to call on and as many as seven of her team are under the age of 25. Ristic has pointed towards the fact that 12 of her team have won this competition before as justification, with their ages not mattering too much given that they have that experience behind them already.

Leaving Majstorovic out was controversial back home, but what might be slightly more contentious among the team is the fact that Milka Marovic was overlooked for the vacant captaincy as a result of that. Marovic was vice-captain in Mytanija’s VWE 11 winning squad and she remains in that role once again here, instead of a promotion for Marovic it is Amalija Kolar who will be taking up the main captaincy. The 28 year old was an inspirational leader despite not having an official leadership role last time and Ristic has recognised that by giving her the captaincy. Kolar leads both by example and by what she says and she is often one of the loudest on the court whether it is with her club side OK Rauchnya or with the national team. Her encouragement and constant tactical reminders could prove vital in ensuring that the team stays on task against some of the more difficult opposition that they will undoubtedly meet in this edition of the tournament.

“It’s an honour to be given this role and I really want to ensure that I do it justice after Nevzeta [Majstorovic] led us so well last time. She set the benchmark by leading us to the world championship and now the challenge is for me to try and do the exact same thing,” Kolar explained. She wouldn’t be drawn on the rumblings of discontent which have been rumoured to be going on among the five-strong Litala ’93 contingent in the squad. There is a belief that they are unhappy that Marovic was overlooked given that she held the vice-captain’s role last time and is coming off the back of winning the MOF Top League domestically whereas Kolar’s OK Rauchnya finished a distant 5th. Whether that decision will affect the team’s morale or cohesion during this tournament is another question, Mytanar fans will hope that they can put it to one side and pull together towards the same goal.

Cassadaigua are the highlight of the opposition Mytanija will face during the group stage. They are our Rushmori rivals but they are also the team Mytanija beat to win the world title last time. A beaten runners-up is always eager to make-up for their disappointment and how better to do that than to avenge the defeat against the team that beat you for the gold medal? Kohnhead were beaten semi-finalists, another victim of an inspired Mytanar team during VWE 11. Having three of the four semi-finalists from last time in one group makes for a really tough group and Siovanija and Teusland round out a really strong quartet of teams at the top of the group. They are ranked in the top five heading into the tournament and will want to improve upon last time’s showing and do that ranking justice. Some might be tempted to fill those four teams in as the ones which will progress from the group, but with only four qualifying positions available and strength throughout the group that could quickly prove to be foolish.

Abanhfleft and Sarzonia may be the two most likely to crash the party, although Græntfjall and Banija could be good bets as potential dark horses in the group at much longer odds. The former two have long records of challenging across many sports and that track record means that they are likely to make things difficult once again here. A group stage meeting with Sarzonia may see a continuation of what some have claimed is ‘disrespectful coverage towards Mytanija’ amongst the Sarzonian media. These claims follow references towards Mytanija as just one of the ‘other teams’ in Group B rather than the defending world champions and a refusal to recognise that Mytanija is the same nation as Mytannion (indeed, just the name of the country in its native tongue) when discussing the meeting between the two countries in the Cup of Harmony. You can be sure that Radina Ristic might mention it when the two teams meet on match day nine, although by that point a qualifying place could be at stake and that should be motivation enough for this group of players given their determination in going back-to-back as world champions.

A pleasant start to the tournament with this tune! MD1 Cutoff.




OOC: IRL the FIVB rules give:

  • 3 ranking points for a 3–0 or 3–1 win,
  • 2 ranking points for a 3–2 win,
  • 1 ranking point for a 2–3 loss,
  • 0 ranking points for a 1–3 or 0–3 loss

With this in mind, the ranking points will be edited as needed as Xkoranate requires you to manually do this work. As I have stated earlier (and with similar precedents in mind for VWE 9 and 10), the VWE tiebreakers will not reflect the RL tiebreakers, as this requires calculating set ratios and rally point ratios.

The Karvian Chronicle

Bollonich struggle, Quebec and Shingoryeo up next; VWE Matchday 1

Coming into the 12th Volleyball World Expo, we didn’t expect much. The introduction of Bollonich into the world of Volleyball is something new and expecting results in the first match would be unrealistic. However our boys did put on a show which is what Bollonischian from all over the country would want. We were up against the Commonwealth of Baker Park a very well known side in the world of Volleyball as they are ranked number 4 in the world. A game against them would always be difficult especially with the added pressure of the stage at which the game was being played.
The match was tight, the first set was won by Baker Park by a close margin of 25-23. The 2nd set saw us out up a slightly weaker performance and lose the set 25-19. We were down, the players looked deflated. If we were to make a comeback we had to make it soon. The next set would be our last chance to make a comeback. And we did improve, winning the third set 25-18. We could have an opportunity and this opportunity would have to be capitalised on. But to the disappointment of the team the excitement of winning a set overtook the focus on the game resulting in a 25-13 4th set defeat winning Baker Park the game.
In the next matches Bollonich faces Quebec and Shingoryeo and Kriegiersien, and if we wish to score points against these strong opponents improvements are in order.

Akusha Rovers dethrone Marda Frogs, Lagos Yetis at the bottom of the table; Bollonischian Volleyball League Matchdays 4-6 Round Up

The first three Matchdays were hugely advantageous for Marda Frogs as they won all three of their games sitting comfortably at first place. These teams were fighting for Volleyball Champions League places and also for a place in the playoffs to the rights of BVL champion. In the first match of matchday 4 Vreton Bulls took to the field against the Marda Frogs, in a match were the Frogs were seen as clear favourites. However what happened next, was expected by no one. Vreton Bulls smashed Marda Frogs three sets to nil. This shows that Marda Frogs are not as unbeatable as we expected so following the first three Matchdays. Akusha Rovers also comfortably won against Lagos Yetis sending them down to the 10th position. Torrijas Wizards meanwhile recorded their first win in the BVL defeating Maihar Lions in a 5 set thriller. The other team from Maihar, Maihar Warriors emerged victorious in a five set thriller against San Pablo Rockers winning their 2nd game.
Marda Frogs suffered yet another loss on match day 5 this time at the hands of San Pablo Rockers who beat them 3 sets to one. This was Marda Frog’s second defeat in a row which literally obliterated their dominating start to the tournament. Torrijas Wizards picked up their second consecutive win defeating the Maihar Warriors 3 sets to 1. Vreton Bulls and Lagos Yetis also respectively won their games against Kings of Fermont and the Karvia Tigers. Meanwhile Maihar Lions defeated Akusha Rovers in what was another very interesting and close game as it went down to five sets where the fifth set was won by the Maihar Lions by a margin of 15-9.
Matchday 6 had the closest matches of them all as all the matches atleast went to 4 sets. Lagos Yetis again dropped back down after losing to the Kings of Fermont 3 sets to 1. Torrijas Wizards rose to number 6 after recording their 3rd consecutive win, this time against Marda Frogs. These 3 match days clearly showed us at how meaningless predictions at the beginning of the season would be. Akusha Rovers rose to the top of the table with a close 3-2 win over Maihar Warriors as Vreton Bulls also recorded their 4th win defeating San Pablo Rockers in another 5 set thriller. The initial matches of the BVL have proven to be sporadic and unpredictable in many regards showing as unpredictability is the name of the game here.

Showing their Strength and Worth

HUElavia sweeps Raspotochje in a convincing opening match victory.


HUElavia 3-0 Raspotochje
(25-13, 25-11, 25-16)
(Hersey Centre, Bathurst, Quebec and Shingoryeo)


Once again, HUElavia was participating in another World Volleyball Expo for the 3rd time in team history, and the team was coming in with expectations for this tournament. Being the #1 ranked team in the sport, Las Amarillas/As Amarelas were looking to go all-in for the WVE title for this edition. Their opening match was against newcomers Raspotochje, who were making their debut. HUElavia, who now had a solid talent system, had the very best players the nation could offer. In front of a strong amount of supporters, most being HUElavians, at Hersey Centre (13,450) in Bathurst, the team looked to make a statement for their opening match.

Surely enough, that was the case for HUElavia. The team dominated all three sets, scoring early from the get-go, and kept distance from Raspotochje throughout the match. Rocha Domingues, Yakovna and Agu were the main stars among the starters, but the substitutions of Tirabassi and Cusipuma were strong substitutes to put up points during the match. The first set saw HUElavia win 25-13, the second set was an obliteration of 25-11, and despite Raspotochje trying their best, HUElavia bested them, 25-16. After the third set, the crowd applauded their performance and the ladies came onto the court to congratulate one another for the great victory.

HUElavia leads Group A with 3 Points (1-0), being tied only by the host nation, Quebec and Shingoreyo. Despite the easy start, HUElavia are now given their actual first tests of this tournament. The next two matches will be against Commonwealth of Baker Park (4) and hosts Quebec and Shingoryeo (6). Both matches will be played at Hersey Centre (13,450) in Bathurst, with a solid amount of HUElavians against Baker Park, but very little amount of HUElavians in front of the home crowd. The ladies continue to train well and study film, while enjoying some of the sights, culture, and cuisine in Bathurst. On top of that, the fans are also enjoying their time in the country, including some supporters visiting family living in Quebec and Shingoryeo. One thing is for sure, these two matches are among the most anticipated ones of the Group Stage, and one can only hope it'll be a fun and entertaining match living up to its hype.

FORCA HUELAVIA! VAMOS HUELAVIA! GO HUELAVIA!

VWE 12 GETS UNDERWAY WITH A WIN
ROCKY START GIVES WAY TO REASSURING 3-1 VICTORY OVER REÇUEÇN


by Almedina Radovanovic

Radina Ristic could be seen giving her team a very stern talking to in the interlude between the first and second sets. Reçueçn had beaten Mytanija too easily in that opener, limiting them to a mere 15 points and not having to work too hard defensively either. The Mytanar team had started slowly and the execution of their often complicated offensive plays was off. Ristic’s team talk seemed to have the desired effect though, as Mytanija won the next three sets unanswered to emerge from the match with a 3-1 victory. That opening set may concern a few back home, perhaps revealing some deficiencies in this team that were covered up as they rode the wave of good form throughout the previous tournament all the way to the gold medal. Radina Ristic certainly wasn’t impressed with the manner in which Mytanija lost that opening set.

“We simply cannot give away sets like that, not against any opponent. Reçueçn came into the game fired up and were rewarded for it. We started slowly and we were punished with the loss of the first set. We cannot give too many sets away like that, teams will make us pay for it. It was good that the team raised their level straight away so the match didn’t slip away from us.” Ristic explained. She has a point too, Reçueçn come into this tournament ranked 35th and given the difficulty of the group Mytanija find themselves there are some very tough opponents to come. It would be difficult to turn around a 1-0 deficit against Cassadaigua or Kohnhead or Siovanija and Teusland even if Mytanija did turn into masters of the five-set match over the past tournament.

“We don’t want too many five-set matches early on in this tournament.” Ristic said. “We have a deep squad which is great if we need to rotate but we want to use everybody sparingly so we have plenty of freshness throughout the team towards the end of the group stage. And hopefully for the knockout stage if we get there.” It is notable that Ristic uses ‘if’ when discussing the prospect of qualifying for the knockout rounds, she isn’t taking anything for granted. If any of the squad show signs of believing that Mytanija can just cruise through the group stage with minimal effort you can be sure they will be given a rude reminder of their responsibilities by the perpetually fiery coach. The amount of depth in this squad means she has plenty of willing replacements should anyone fail to pull their weight.

There were debut appearances for libero Oana Asenova and setter Tamara Duleva against Reçueçn, although Radina Ristic didn’t use 23 year old opposite hitter Alenka Kokot. Kokot is expected to be a starter against some of the higher ranked nations in this tournament, but Ristic seems determined to keep her style of play under wraps lest opponents use video analysis to prepare against her. They will of course be able to gather some information from Kokot’s domestic appearances, but there isn’t any video of her playing with the national team and she could become an integral performer over the course of this VWE. As an opposite hitter Kokot is an excellent defensive talent but there has been discussions of using her scoring abilities in novel ways with the national team too. The less preparation opponents have for that the better.

Asenova and Duleva are domestic colleagues at Avnalia Odbojka and after a slow start in the first set they displayed a near telepathic relationship in the subsequent sets. Asenova’s defensive abilities are really solid whilst Duleva is a really creative presence in the team’s back line. Ljubena Trpkoska started alongside her two other domestic team mates and led the team in scoring for the match with 18 points. The middle blocker was used creatively in offensive schemes but also regularly scored points with opportunistic play at the net. Milena Spasojevic was second in scoring with 16 points, using her athleticism to cause Reçueçn problems. Her performance might have given Radina Ristic some food for thought, Spasojevic has generally been third choice behind Mira Gushtanova and Majda Omeragic, but she was strong here and carried out her coach’s instructions very well.

Amalija Kolar led the team to victory in her first game as captain, she was the only regular starter that started against Reçueçn and despite the poor start she was a big part in the team turning things around. The debates over whether Milka Marovic was overlooked for the captaincy is likely to rage on, with Litala ’93 supporters particularly miffed that one of their players was snubbed. It should be remembered that Radina Ristic is her coach at domestic level though and surely she wouldn’t want to cause too much disappointment given that she needs Marovic to perform at that level too. It does feel a little more like a confected drama than anything too serious, something more for supporters and the media than those involved. Marovic could be seen happily celebrating with Kolar throughout the match.

Looking ahead Mytanija have their first double-header of the tournament, with games against Hebitaka and Malandrin in close succession. Those games should give Mytanija a good chance of building up a strong record whilst some of the other top seeds have to play one another. Ristic’s team will have to be more convincing than the opening set against Reçueçn if they really want to strike fear into some of the other teams, the tag of world champions should carry a fair bit of weight but if the team can drop sets as easily as that one then opponents will feel they can get something from those matches. You can expect to see slightly stronger selections as the tournament goes on too. The next double-header pits Mytanija against Cassadaigua and Kohnhead, meaning Ristic might want to get some of her key players out on the court to ensure they are sharp for those tougher assignments.
