Copa Rushmori XXXVIII - Sign-Up Thread (ONLY Rushmore)

Postby Rushmore » Sun Jun 20, 2021 10:29 pm

[OOC: This thread is intended to be used exclusively by nations in Rushmore, so if you are not a nation in Rushmore or a moderator performing his/her duties, please refrain from posting here.]

Another World Cup cycle is about to end, and this means it's time for a new Copa Rushmori edition, the thirty-eighth one! With Nephara claiming victory in the thirty-seventh and most recent Copa Rushmori, held in Eura, now we move on to a new edition in which a new winner could potentially claim a piece of silverware and inscribe its name in the Roll of Honour, and that winner could be YOU!

Sign up in this thread, and if you wish to submit a host bid, you can do so here as well.


  • Regulars returning from CTE status after the moment this thread was posted may join, provided that they have competed in at least two (back-to-back) of the previous 37 Copa editions.
  • Only one puppet will be allowed per OOC user (who must declare it as such when entering it) and their final inclusion into the tournament will be entirely up to host discretion.

San Ortelio, your favorite pseudo-Italian, coastal microstate. Less than half a million inhabitants who stand for a rich culture, are governed
by an delicate yet marvellously balanced system and remain economically viable due to fishing and funky tax laws.
But enough about us. Come vai?

We're no international threat, so have our domestic thread.

Puppet something something, confirm something something, yes,

OOC: Cuttable in case of numbers not lining up.

ADDENDUM: Given with everything that is happening at the same time, I will likely only be able to post a roster for Norrhem.
