WORLD CUP OF HOCKEY 50: GROUP STAGE VENUES
Submission Information


IC: The fiftieth World Cup of Hockey, in an effort to celebrate the long history of Ice hockey across the sporting Multiverse, will be looking to have accept bids for prospective venues in the Group Stage.

While Hockey Quebec, the organising body of (ice) hockey in Quebec and Shingoryeo, has won the hosting rights for the tournament, the bid was also run with the specific intention to bring together the international hockey world together, as they have done so back in World Cup of Hockey 26 and Basketball Quebec with the International Basketball 35, before 16 of them come together to Joongyeong, Quebec and Shingoryeo for the single-elimination knockout stage.

With this in mind, the Hockey Quebec, in coordination with the World Cup of Hockey Federation (WCoHF), will be opening the bidding process with seven hosting venues for the seven out of eight group stage. The eighth venue, Kingston Garden, in Kingston, Mahan, Quebec and Shingoryeo, will be hosting the Group A.

OOC: Please consider that depending on the number and quality of bids, I may consider extending it from eight to twelve bids to reflect the pool of bids, but let's not consider that at this point in time. So, with that in mind, this is also an opportunity for participating nations, whether they make it or not, to roleplay it out a hockey venue your federation (OOCly you, of course) would like to submit for an international championship. For quite a few of you, this is a good time to maybe tell us more about a past WCoH venue. For others, this may be a good opportunity to present a new venue that could be used for a future World Cup of Hockey!

So, with that in mind, here are some of the steps/points that you should consider when bidding:

1. Please post your application in an RP form here. Please do not PM or TG me your submission, or post them on the OOC thread, or they will not be recognised. You are welcome to post it on a separate post to your roleplay, or as part of your roster. That said, if you are adding your arena bid after your roster's done, please PM me via Discord or send a Telegram. Safer bet at this point in time would be via Telegram.

2. One arena per nation may be submitted. In your RP, you must state a detailed description of your venue submission. The very minimum and basic you will need may range from arena location and possible facilities (accommodation, practice venue, etc) to other miscellaneous info which you deem helpful for RPing purposes. It is also helpful to add information about the city and the nation to help others roleplay about the city - feel free to include a link or more to past information (article/IC info post/etc) about the city as part of the submission.

3. The deadline for the bids will be 23:59 UTC, of 4th of February. Seven hosting venues selected will be announced as part of the group draw, set to be held by the 2359 Eastern (Toronto-New York Time).

4. You, dear participant, may be overly concerned with whether your respective venue bid will pass or not. As the host I'd specifically advise you not to think too much about it, especially as 1) the numbers of accepted venues (aside from Joongyeong, of course) may increase up to twelve, and 2) your roleplay submission will be counted for MD1, whether accepted or not. So, with that in mind, I'd advise you to put out the best and see how it comes along.


Have fun folks.


Quebec & Shingoryeo Information
Quebec & Shingoryeo is a gigantic nation of 94 million people located in northwestern Arrosia.

The land that is now known to be part of Quebecois Realms is inhabited for millennia by the indigenous people present in the region. In the year 1404, the fleet of Joseonite exiles from the would sail into the so-called RL-verse move into areas that nowadays constitute the Acadie province and the capitol of Joongyeong, where the kingdom was founded in the same year by Henri I, who negotiated treaty of coexistence among all peoples of the nation, whether indigenous or Koreanophone.

Over the subsequent centuries, the nation would grow in size and technology. With the quiet incorporation of the neighbouring peoples, the expansion of maritime trade between Atlantian Oceania and Rushmore (and to some degree Tyran and Esportiva), subsequent industrialisation of the country's industries, and inconsistent operations of the interrealm portal, the Quebecois Empire would grow to incorporate territories across many regions.

The Empire, while formed by military warfare and supported by its allied nations (see: Gatchingerrak Union's constituent nations), was an odd one of own. It did not suppress the peoples or the cultures, but focused on the equal standings between the locals (this being mostly the ruling elites of the territories) who would fall under the mostly similar administrative and economic frameworks (citation needed for latter btw). Thus, the Empire was stood to be a short-term option with nations fostered to develop their own, nationalistic path over time. With the growing inequalities faced domestically at home, and the overseas territories becoming increasingly unmanageable in economic terms by the early-1900s, decolonisation and the further bloc-ification of the Quebecois Empire and its allies were inevitable and encouraged.

Eventually, the Empire would turn into that of the Quebecois Commonwealth, a loose political and economic union of two-dozen nations, with the process finished by year 1949. The nation, now without a glitter (and grime) of an empire, had to embark on their own path to redefine themselves. Continued encouragement of immigration from both Commonwealth and non-Commonwealth nations, which had coincided the postwar decades' excitement and calls for cultural liberalisation, would further diversify the nation. At the same time the resilient strength of the nation's economy, even after all the booms-and-busts of economic cycles, nationalisation and privatisation and re-nationalisation policies, would too ensure that Quebec and Shingoryeo, just over a century after the nation-defining Southern Rushmori War and the de-markation of the Quebecois Empire, and just under a decade after historical Foxchester Declaration, is still a darn good place to live, if slightly expensive.

Quebec and Shingoryeo is a federal parliamentary democracy and semi-constitutional monarchy, currently led by Christine II as the head of state. There are three official languages - English, French and Korean - with local indigenous languages spoken in regional capacity. Quebec and Shingoryeo has one of the largest economies in both regions, which is built upon its strengths in heavy industry, finance and agriculture.

As the seat of the former Quebecois Empire and the current Quebecois Commonwealth, Quebec & Shingoryeo has stood as a major power in Anaia and Atlantian Oceania. It has also maintained its historical status as one of the major international powers in culture, science and philosophy - a feat achieved partly through the existence of Quebecois Commonwealth and its geopolitical location between Anaia, Atlantian Oceania and Rushmore, but also through long history of social and cultural homogeneity that originated from the nation's founding day. That said the nation, once an active participant in international wars, has stayed peaceful and relatively conflict-less, and is expected to uphold the past forty years of peacetime.
Some Questions



Travelling to Quebec and Shingoryeo is a fun, multi-planar experience of own. So, with this in mind, here are some travel tips you could use during the course of the Olympics:

1. Laws, laws and laws.

Quebec and Shingoryeo is known to be a fairly liberal country in terms of certain laws, and it's partly true. That is probably why you are smelling a bit of marijuana and may be drinking too much on an outdoor patio of a local delicatessen while walking down the street.

The minimum age to purchase and consume substances vary in what substance - 14 for alcohol, 16 for marijuana, and 21 for tobacco. Possession and consumption of said substances (which also include a narrow list of recreational drugs) outdoors are predictably legal as well, though some boomers and fitness maniacs may openly judge you if you do them in a park or somewhere that is public.

There is a total ban on indoor public smoking, however, and this extends to sporting events in general. Drinking on indoor venues, while not prohibited, will be frowned upon. Besides, why would you drink indoors when there is just a pub down the road with way cheaper and better quality Anju? Drugs trade, unless they are from a legal vendor and for legal substance, is banned. So if you are a local or a tourist, you are more than welcome to go to a state-owned Cannabiscorp or a co-op store and buy stuff instead.

What is no different than other past hosting nations are firearms. Firearm ownership, let alone use, is heavily restricted in Quebec and Shingoryeo with exceptions only given to those whose work requires it (e.g. shooters, pentathletes, some members of the police and the military), or those who have likely survived months and several dozen pages of the application process for a hunting rifle. For the sake of this competition, let's just assume that it's probably not a good idea to not bring your favourite Glock or Colt .45 to Quebecois soil.

2. Quebecois Pound (Q£) is the national currency. The exchange rate is roughly Q£1 = NSD 2.00. Foreign credit cards will be accepted into most bank ATMs.

3. As seen above, Quebec and Shingoryeo has three official languages - English, French and Korean - with local indigenous language(s) also used on a regional capacity. While all three languages will be used in an official capacity, the language dynamic there is a bit more complicated - the best way to describe this is by using a quote from Sylvain IV 'The Thinker', the great-grandfather of current Christine II - 'I speak English to a Banker, French to a Dancer, Korean to a Thinker, and the Original Tongue to a God.' In the Northwestern part of Quebec, English and Korean are primarily spoken.

4. Quebecois people are usually known to be talkative, celebratory and most importantly blunt, and they will rarely apologise or remain polite unless on close capacity. While those in need of help or directions will always be helped, and you will be set for a long time after that, it is expected that the help is asked first by those to whom this may concern. That said, once the help is sought out and all goes well, you will be set for the rest of your time here, and may have found yourself a lifelong mate to come stay over or drink with.

5. The rights of freedom of speech and assembly are guaranteed. That said, this does not mean freedom from consequences.

In adherence to the security protocol established back back in the Games of the 16th Olympiad, there will be strict security checks when entering the venues and team hotels, with additional personnel placed across the city. Unlike with the Olympics, however, there will be more lax security regulations -- flares, obscenely large banners and limited display of hooliganism will be tolerated. Displays of hate speech will not be tolerated, however.

6. The question of religion is a complicated one, perhaps even more so than languages. Traditionally, Roman Catholicism, Mahayana Buddhism, Anglicanism, and Indigenous religions are considered as four religious pillars of state and are viewed with particular interest by the state and people. All four pillars, as well as other minor religions, incorporate various elements of native shamanism and folk traditions and do not always follow the rules from Vatican or Canterbury, something that has complicated the authority-to-authority relations over the Interrealm portal.

The rights of religion are unquestioned here, and this will remain the same throughout the course of your stay in the country. People tend to be careful being aware of other person's religions though, and their way of addressing it is usually not asking about them. At least not on the first impression/moment, or else they are viewed as rude.

7. If you need police, fire or most importantly medical help, please call 777. (Yeah, it's literally 777).

Visitors and athletes of delegations will be able to receive excellent and prompt care from the city's hospitals and walk-in clinics under the People's Healthcare Services (PHS). Specialists may take a little bit longer time to reach, but for the most part, will be there for you in time. Those interested in consulting services re: traditional medicine will be given referrals, but those likely require a friend or two, or a local jack, who knows one.

8. Food and alcohol here should be fine, if slightly spicy. Influenced by the indigenous fare and the influences of haute cuisine coming from the Joseonian settlers of old, the Quebecois cuisine is largely based upon rice, and other diverse kinds of grains, vegetables, and meats. In this part of Calania, moose, lamb and caribou are known to be particularly popular, which have long survived the wave of delicacies that are no longer eaten.

They are also known for their intensive use of spices, sauces and pastes. Seafood is extremely popular across the country, though their affordability remains up in the air unless you reside on the West or East Coast - more inland parts usually consume freshwater fare instead. Quebecois do not have a particularly picky taste of alcohol in general, though what alcohol you drink usually depends on your cultural background and socioeconomic demographics. Smoking culture is massive here, and while cigarette smoking is very slowly declining over the years, marijuana's prominence in society is not something that's being challenged anytime soon.


Welcome to Joongyeong!

The Hockey Quebec, in coordination with the RQOC, welcomes all to Joongyeong, capital city and second-largest city of Quebec and Shingoryeo, for the milestone fiftieth edition of the World Cup of Hockey. In the past, Joongyeong has hosted multiple qualifier events of both the Games of the XI Olympiad and the XVI Winter Olympics, and has hosted over several dozen international competitions within the city boundaries.

Located at the midway point between Fleuve Saint-Henri and the mouth of the River to the East Sea (also known to those outside as Grinshem Sea), Joongyeong is the nation's capital and widely viewed as the 'Soul of the Nation'. Founded in 1504, when Henri I, the founding monarch of the Jeong House, established the kingdom on a treaty between the indigenous tribes of the area, and named it 'Joongyeong', as the centrally-located capital, on the meeting place of all forces of power. Like with Songak Joongyeong quickly grew as did the Quebecois nation and subsequently the Empire, as Quebec City was the heart of the country where the intelligentsia argued about its identity, the nobility about how to survive and evolve in consistently changing world around them, and the foreign interests looking to take part in their own missions.

As the Quebecois Empire peaked in mid-1800s to early 1900s, the finest legacies of the era were often said to be 'built on Songak, Kingston and Halifax's might, the reach of the Quebecois National Railway Company, and flowered in Joongyeong'. That's why what we remember as Quebecois fin-de-siecle, one of the finest periods mentioned in history, literature art history textbooks, is heavily focused on the city itself. Unlike Montreal, where the romanticist and ideological movements were based more around nationality and also the class, philosophical and political movements continued to remain more abstract and existential in the 'Northern Paradise', guarded by Universite St. Croix's famous Seongyoongwan University College and its constituent colleges, as well as its cafes, sporting venues (horse races, polo, Taekgyeon and Sseuireum were lot more common back then) and salons.

There was for a period of time, especially in the 1940s-1960s during which the Capitol, partly due to the divide between Quebec and Novopetrogradian Soviet Union that brought temporary cold war before their reconciliation, as well as the Post-wartime euphoria, had seemed to be frozen back in time. Unlike Montreal, however, Joongyeong was able to maintain consistency in its own significance as both the Palais Royale, the Parliament and the house of all four Quebecois pillar religions (Buddhism, Anglicanism, Catholicism and Indigenous Religions) remained in the country (not that it was gonna leave anyway), and with innovative urban planning processes, Joongyeong has become the seat of relevance it sought on own.

Being the heart of Quebec, the 'City of Eternal Lights' is a traveller's paradise as hundreds of museums and monuments form the city. Among them, the most popular ones are the Commonwealth Museum, the Garam Museum of National History and Northern Calania, as well as Sainte-Victoire Gallery and Royal Shingoryeoite Gallery. The Royal Quebecois Ballet and the Quebec Philarmonic Orchestra, two largest among hundreds of classical arts organisations, are hosted in the Royal Walton Hall and Pavilion Bakhmeteff. While the nobility and haute bourgeoisie usually stays out of public celebrations and events, the city's force majorite is usually out in many festivals that dot the city's calendar - the most famous being QBC Proms that mark the city's summer. For those who come here to see some of the city's older histories, they would be charmed by the Daemyeonggong Palace, Sandringham Abbey and also Arlene and Richard Museum which do their best to explain the fabled history of the royals.

Parc de l'Armistice announced as host venue for WCoH, with multiple inner-city venues to be used for additional WinterFest festivities


Bryan Chun

JOONGYEONG, JOONGYEONG -- The knockout stage of the World Cup of Hockey 50, the hosting rights in which have been awarded to Hockey Quebec by the World Cup of Hockey Federation a year ago, has been finalised to be hosted at the recently-rebuilt Parc de l'Armistice in central Joongyeong.

The Hockey Quebec chair, Magalie Prestman, made the announcement this morning at the Hockey Quebec headquarter in Rue d'Arras, east Joongyeong, Magalie Prestman said the opportunity itself presents a possible record-breaking crowd for the World Cup of Hockey, with no shortage of around 80,000 fans being able to attend the game in the former home of the Q-League side CSKA Quebec.

'The history Quebec and Shingoryeo holds with the World Cup of Hockey, combined with this opportunity that allows us to extend our sense of hospitality and tradition of outdoor games in the competition, ensures no less than that of success here in Joongyeong, right in front of eighty thousand fans each and every game of the way,' said Prestman.

'We are beyond thrilled to offer international hockey fans unparralleled, two-week spectacle in which the hockey fans will not be left disappointed. We promise and expect to deliver a milestone experience fitting of a milestone edition of the hockey's premier tournament.'

The announcement of the venue choice, which is also accompanied by twelve-day competition calendar between 6th and 17th of February, 2062, arrives after months of speculation about possible venues to be held in Joongyeong. The long-anticipated hosting of the milestone World Cup of Hockey, which would feature competition hosts Quebec and Shingoryeo, as well as a Commonwealther sporting coalition of Vatmarkian nations in Gatchingerrak Union, have seen discussions of possible hosting venues range from The Reneegrad, the current home of Quebecois national football team, to bringing back retractable, 20,000-seat stadium at Parc Girardot.

In the end, however, the Hockey Quebec has decided to hold the competition, which will be held in the Arrosian state for the sixth time following successful hosting of the WCoH 25-26, 29, 40 and 44 on its own soil, in the established, state-of-art domains of the Parc de l'Armistice, where the stadium's track surface will be adjusted with additional rows of seating, giving it no less than 80,000 seats per game.

While the Parc de l'Armistice will be hosting the competition, there will be no shortage of events available in a continued commitment to providing opportunities for fans and media that had last been displayed on this competition here at the home soil, when the Rink of Dreams had hosted the knockout rounds of WCoH 44.

Over the course of two-week period, the Parc will be accompanied by numerous arenas and stadiums, which include the Parc de Joongyeong and l'Arc-en-Ciel, that will be hosting various events during and leading up to the two-week period that is currently promoted as 'WinterFest Joongyeong', separate from 'Le Carnaval de Joongyeong' that is held in late-December.

This include and are not limited to the QHL All-Star Game, which will be hosted at the Arena Jacques-Lee-Woodpecker in Alexandre-IV District, as well as exhibition matches between the alumni of various Quebecois sides - including that of the World Cup of Hockey 26 championship squad (whose age should average at around mid-upper eighties) - and possible inclusion of foreign all-star/alumni sides. Also on table are Hockey's Best celebrity games, with teams and coaches to be determined in the coming days(OOC: feel free to contact me or RP out the opportunities listed here, of course).

And while the plans for the reassembled Arena-de-Parc-Girardot did not secure the rights to host the knockout rounds, it is expected that the reassembled pieces of the Parc-Girardot will be rebuilt into six, open-air hockey arenas with 1,000 to 2,000 seats that, with advanced reservation, could be used for hockey matches of various levels. Several hours of 'shinny hockey' would be available as well.

'The plans for this milestone edition of World Cup of Hockey are to fully utilise the resources and opportunities available in the nation's capitol, thus going above and beyond the limits of a single stadium,' Prestman said. 'The QHL All-Star game, the arenas in Parc-Girardot and other possible alumni games and whatnot are there for a full, immersive experience of the sport and the Joongyeongite winter. It is about the passion and the game.'

DARKMANIA

A new World Cup, a lot of changes. From the adoption of an official nickname for the national team to picking a permanent national arena, to hiring a coach.

After how much time has passed, the darkmanain national team has now an official nickname. Named after the national animal, the Golden Eagle, the national team will be ready to duke it on the rink and fly high in the sky. The pernament national arena has been decided to be Dëritee Arena in the capital Örkendrem, the host venue for the JWCoH21.
Secondly, The Golden Eagle now has a brand-new head coach. Andrew James "Andy" Bailey, from Elejamie, is our new head coach, following Andy’s termination as head coach for Junior Ice-a-phants, the junior elejamian national hockey team. He got the offer right after Elejamian Ice Hockey Board (EIHB) terminated his contract due to poor performance at the JWCoH.
What a difference 4 world cups can make for a once-scrapping national team…


NICKNAMES: Dë Gÿldöns (The Golden Eagles)
NATIONAL VENUE: Dëritee Arena, Örkendrem
KIT: Green, blue and red in that order.
RANK: 17th (as of up to this tournament)
STYLEMOD: -2
OFFICAL GOALHORN: here. (Yes, Darude - Sandstorm is our goal horn.)

OSTERHALTIAN BID FOR WCoH 50 GROUP STAGE HOSTING

Hockey Osterhalten hereby states their desire to host a portion of the Group Stage in the 50th edition of the World Cup of Hockey.



THE VENUE

The Forum at Marzstraße is a hockey-only arena home to the Ingny Wolves of the Osterhaltian Hockey League, and seats 22,600 fans at full capacity. The arena has three sections; the 100 level, or Lower Bowl, 200 level, or club seats, and the 300 level, or Upper Bowl. Built 6 years ago, to replace an aging facility a few blocks away, the Forum is one of the newest professional stadiums in Osterhalten and has the amenities to boot. The arena sits in near the middle of the city, in an area which has recently undergone great growth and redevelopment. New mid-size towers and builds surround the Forums neighborhood, yet in three directions you are just a five minute walk or one stop away from a perfectly maintained neighborhood with traditional Baroque architecture from the late 18th century. All seats in the lower bowl, club level, and upper bowl have padded seats with drink holders, and miniature trash dispensers every few seats to prevent messy floors. Concourse areas are spacious, well-lit and clean with many restaurants and drink fountains to prevent large line which are prohibitive to getting food or watching the entire game. Additionally, there are TVs broadcasting the game within view of the lines to make up for any missed game time spent in line. Food options range from affordable pizza and hot dogs to more expensive dining options in the club levels, with views of the action. Ticket and security lines have been expedited, with a walk-through scanner that scans your ticket and one that scans for any harmful objects or substances without need to take metal objects from your pockets. As a result, security and ticket times are consistently well under half a minute, including the line.

As for team services, the arena has six locker rooms: a large and state-of-the-art locker room reserved solely for the Wolves, another locker room of similar size for another home team or the Osterhalten National Team, and four large, well-equipped rooms for away teams- not to the level of the home rooms, but still very nice and comfortable. Teams will be assigned home or away; if the team is home, they will use the second home room, and the away team will use an away room. To ensure fairness, all teams will be home and away an equal amount of times. The home team will be listed first in scheduling. Player and staff entrance info will be given to teams once it has been confirmed which group Osterhalten will be hosting. Lodging can be arranged through HockeyOsterhalten as well, if the team so desires. Three practice venues have been decided upon: the Whitmer Pavilion, the Cambridge Rinks, and Couthorn Garden Rink. Whitmer Pavilion is the closest of the three, located 20 minutes away by car, in the Whitmer neighborhood of northeast Ingny. Couthorn Garden and Cambridge Rinks are 25 minutes away in different directions, Couthorn to the east and Cambridge to the north. All of these arenas have had ice time properly secured so that teams may practice whenever they desire. Maximum ice time available to be reserved at once is two hours, unless no other teams have expressed their desire to practice by the night before.

Getting to and from the arena is an easy task for fans and will be even easier for players. Multiple below-ground metro stations meet right in front of the arena, connecting directly from the airport, central train station, and many tourist areas. The 3 Line connects De Roschvall airport to eastern commercial and residential areas to the arena, and west towards Ingny's central business district and the central train station. The 5 Line runs North-South, connecting the major inner-ring city of Hesse to northern residential areas, the Forum, Ingny's Old Town, Südbahnhof (which is a stop on multiple commuter rail, intercity rail and high-speed rail lines) and south to other inner-ring suburbs. Shuttle buses directly from the arena's player entrance to team hotels will be provided, ensuring ease of access at all hours of the day. Players will be provided free InGOt transit cards, as public transit is the premier way to travel in and around the city.


THE CITY


Image

images are AI generated

Though not Osterhalten's capital, Ingny is a massive city of nearly 15 million citizens, making it the largest municipality in Osterhalten by almost five million people. Including the surrounding cities, a few of which are also above one million citizens, Ingny's metro area comes to approximately 25 million residents, accounting for 1/4 of Osterhalten's total population. As a result, there are vibrant scenes of just about any culture or cuisine you could imagine, meaning no visitor should feel too far from home. Located on the banks of the large and scenic Charleston Lake, Ingny's population and economy grew as a result of becoming a major shipping and trading port in the mid 18th century. Though already one of the largest cities in the nation, Ingny exploded in population, nearly tripling in size in a 10 year span. Since then, Ingny has enjoyed steady growth with little downturns.

The city is generally referred to by 9 general directions, Central, West, Northwest, North, Northeast, East, Southeast, South, and Southwest. Though every area of the city has a non-directional name, there are generally too many to remember off the top of one's head, so directions tend to do in casual conversation. Of course, you can ask most residents and they'd be happy to help you around the city. The West and Central areas of the city are where tourists tend to head towards: the oldest areas of the city and most major museums, palaces and attractions are located within the two. Ingny's central business district is in the Northwest area of the city, a bit away from the older city. The Forum is located in the northeast of the Central area, nearby some of the more famous boulevards and attractions of the city. Famed attractions include the Isomberg Palace (pictured above), Marzstraße, and the Carolean Museum.

Blessed with a non-oppressive summer climate and little chance for major storms, Ingny has great tourism potential year-round. In the winter months, Ingny averages a low temperature of -4 degrees Celsius, and a average high of 23C in the summer. The city is moderately hilly, while eastward larger hills begin to appear, making an attractive destination for snowboarders and skiiers in the nation's northeast. Ice hockey in Ingny has a massive fanbase, just like in basically the entire rest of the nation, meaning no matter the participants or importance of the game, the Forum will be a nearly guaranteed sellout every game.

Nearly every resident of Ingny and its surroundings will be bilingual due to standard programs in youth schooling. The dominant languages of the area are Terranean and Stetchen (OOC English, German), while some will also be fluent in Azertienne (French). For international travel, visitors will arrive at either the De Roschvall International Airport or the slightly smaller Ingny International Airport. Internally, air travel is heavily restricted, leading to nearly all air travel to or from those airports being international. If the team desires to visit internally at any point before, during or after the group stage, the rail system is heavily recommended. Travel within the city is dominated by public transport, cycling and walking, though driving is an (albeit slower) option.

The Last Gunman

Malekith Rodriguez is the last world-beating expert on guns in lawful civilian employment in Corporate City 1, the second-largest constituent nation of the Unified Sea Dome. He started as a simple young boy, scarred by violence like anyone, uncomplicated like any child, and as full of uncountable multitudes at the same time according to the dual nature of things. His knowledge of things unknown by the foolish leaden bloody kill crazy generations all around him and most of his own was frightening if you were the previous kind of gunman. Fittingly, the lone gun man is the one who most hates every firearm manufactured, used, designed or even contemplated and with the most equally unyielding destructive intent. This necessarily makes him the man of the hour. Under the Unified League, essentially a geopolitical governmental simulacra of the existing Sea Peoples League multisport organization, the City has no more excuses for its gun-toting "extraditions" straight to hell, much to the relief of surviving Credit Cartel financiers who got in over their heads in the Crime Wars. With those left any remaining, paltry excuses for civilian and military use of firearms within city limits soon had begun to seem as obviously what they were. No more guns in CC1.

He has one need in life, quite without his conscious agreement to the fact, never the less urgent, and that is to hate every gun more than the last. Unbeknownst to our poor man, but really known in his gut where all this world's most unacceptable truths bred like so much engorged fungus, this must be true simply by dry industrial and economic fact alone. From the complete banning of guns even for police are some heavy new facts uneasily inferred with as much celerity. One, the retraining bill is going to come due. Two, more to the point, the old kind of gunman must either develop a new employment- very possible here, to be sure, and to some degree accessible- or become even more a criminal than they may have already been. To expect any significant number to develop such a new employment without any use of similar devices, grips, or (simulated) combative engagement customary to them would be purest folly and probably not widely recommended. This leaves our new and old criminals, and certain defensive and foreign sporting applications: biathlon, simulated laser gun sports, and the like. Malekith was no biathlete himself and with equally little use for the simulated. Real life was bad enough, he had to figure.

No, his war is a real one, as completely deadly as any other. His is the last death stick of justice, and it cannot be loaded nor fired. His patented adjustable device, illegal even here to describe in much of a technical sense, fits neatly into the barrel of any such weapon by drone insertion and explodes it, dispensing as much of that outward force in the way of anyone present deemed responsible for the presence of killer contraband. This of course involves containment protocol effectively classified as a high security procedure in the new police force. Malekith tolerates no rank and is not asked to do so, but counts his coups in guns exploded. The acquisition of that number is greatly eased by the technology of his time and its fluctuating physical context but not so much that it can be summarized here, other than to say he has blown a ton of guns to hell where they each belong. Though single-minded careerism is usually otherwise frowned upon by the culture, it is hard for anyone not to respect his unceasing hate campaign, all as legal as it is dangerous. His death is inevitably coming, more urgently so than the average civilian that is, and it is already as deeply his truth as the undeniable fact of his productive life and beating heart. Life is death for a gunman.

It takes a lot of adjustment to explode every possible gun to make in the flux-future. For one thing, Earth alone had enough of a mess of guns and the like, a horrid number where century old guns didn't even die ever. To this day a spaceman is unlikely to carry absolutely zero tools inspired most greatly by a WW1 design because nothing has changed in war or the business of killing otherwise since then. There have been changes, yes, but deepenings, not structurally different paradigms. What is a thermonuclear bomb but the ultimate stick? Our man will insist the ultimate stick is one that can be adjusted to explode a lot of different kinds of guns. Some must of course be gathered for evidence and destroyed in more or less traditional ways. But whenever possible, that gun will explode, hopefully with no further loss of life involved but who would not shoot il Duce? Who would not shoot Franco, or Hitler? This truth is beyond his power to avoid or ignore. It is difficult to call this time peaceful if you have observed him or the criminals at work.

His death stick cannot afford to hesitate any more than whatever unfortunate self defense tool you or I might have, can it, then? Nobody willing to break the strictest imaginable gun laws, enforced by such frigid sick humanity, could possibly hesitate to kill officers or the gunman or anyone else. It would be the height of absurdity to imagine them unwilling to kill and endure pain and attrition. The latest gun is the subject of his waking nightmare, but what else could possibly be? At any rate it is hot-plastic laminated, which does not mean the plastic is hot during manufacturing or handling although of course it is by the by. No, the City's hot plastic fad can only even be wielded by an individual whose hands are burned to the point of desperation already. Hot contact gloves made this trend inevitable as soon as they made it possible, but the City needed a way to force compliance without guns, and that awful and messy business even by his standards was obviously not for Mr. Rodriguez. The wielders themselves, after all, were necessarily burned by device malfunctions after assault by way of illegal or rogue contact gloves. He wears the nigh-indestructible kind of gloves, the kind you have to wear if you spend time around the current type of criminal, and avoids close contact warfare by absolute necessity. As might I, or you, he refuses to die by malfunction of his death stick unless he were himself turned into some kind of gun criminal. In exchange for tolerating the legal restrictions of interdimensional writing, I will grant you foreknowledge that this is not how our protagonist dies.

His hands are smooth, covered, safe. From the usual stuff at least. That's a strangely rare thing in the flux-future, so don't go there. Returning to our business, the hot-plastic laminated gun buries its minimal use of metals underneath a lot more material of hot plastic, often plasma, always needing to be scalding hot to operate. It is not new for a profession to require the lamentable scarring and scalding of hands with the callous heat of life under literal fire, of course. A ringmaker worth her precious metals can count on employing heat at such temperatures, even in medieval times as your own, as to make life under the necessary layers of protection feasible. No one can or ever has bothered to use the gloves, nor will they ever, one must assume for one's sanity. What is a ringmaker who refuses the sacrifice every one of his profession has taken before? Do you want to pay a ring's price for such a ring, and do I? Not our man but in the world he attacks daily, there is no point squeamishly holding on to every nerve cell just because it's crucially important to life as a non-ringmaker. Loss of the fingerprint is as always one more asset in the repertoire of the criminal who operates outside in the free world. One more biometric to not be tracked. Maybe one fewer arrest, or even fewer than that, and maybe not execution for some time. I wouldn't bet on that last one but certain assumptions are inherent to the criminal mind, though of course they be ever subpositioned to culture and law and those things.

The first obvious problem once Malekith has obtained this awful stuff away to his lab, the last legal civilian gun collection to eyes of a certain sort and the last gun-obsessed crime lab to others, is to study a gun you can't possibly handle without making a pointless sacrifice the way he saw it. His thinking, anyway, you'd expect there to be some way of investigating the thing in unlimited time which meant that there was always a nonzero possibility this scientific advancement in forensic research could come about tomorrow. A scientist can be disabled, and who isn't by this absurd reality, anyway? But he needs to feel guns again to do his job once the fad for hot-plastic is waned. He never intends before retirement to lose any possibility of as fully as reasonably possible knowing every gun that comes into existence. There is really only one gun, but that's true only if you understand the other guns, a queasy business he is on top of in the rest of his working hours. To deal with an adversary with a sense universally limited by artificial destructive action can be turned into an advantage with the proper work, after all. He forfeits no advantage except to join the criminal lifestyles made possible by the abjection of not being the man who prints himself honestly on surfaces or at any rate on the inside of gloves, gloves in his example not being capable of taking any life except by containing the hands of he who would dispense that sick justice.

This hot plastic laminated gun refers to one of a few distinct but universally simplified handgun designs, in the sense that any safety precautions have been ripped out by the designers to replace with the new priority of completely avoiding detection as a gun. If you're in his world and you're dealing with guns you're pretty fucked whether or not he gets his hands on you because the nature of the thing is to kill and die, but this baby will take the sense of adventure up a notch in your short remaining life even by that standard. But criminal or gunman, he who kills and does not die can only live as the walking vampire impossible for any sane person to understand or covet, he figures. He's already toast spiritually so he can only honor his gods by the temple of his physicality and thinking. Our protagonist, aside from recently qualifying for Olympic speed skating assuming the new unified government can actually do that (an open question at this juncture but certainly a domestic sporting achievement), Mr. Rodriguez is the antivillain who will prevent the assassination of Unified Sea Dome Lemon Sharks Left Wing Indira Winters by a legal act of slaughter saving her life and endowing the ultimate punishment on those who would seek to end it in the undue haste inherent to taking up a weapon in anger. There is no illusion that he is something better than a killer in doing so but the law is what it is. He takes a long, indulgent bite in whatever is in the #1 combo from Trip's Sandwich House on 1728 Affordance Drive, Midnight City. A good restaurant always has a #1 combo and it's always something that is popular because, among other reasons, it is good to the kind of people who would be attracted to go there. Eating "whatever is #1" as potentially your last meal every day is a kind of adventure that gets your hands dirty without burning them if you're lucky.

Nickname: The Ice-a-phants

Ice hockey is the most popular sport in Elejamie, followed by football/soccer (both are acceptable in Elejamie) and rugby [union], In fact, the men's national team - nicknamed the Ice-a-phants as of 2021 - are one of the best teams in the multiverse, winning five times (29th, 31st, 35th, 43rd and 49th), being runners-up in the finals four times (30th, 32nd, 44th and 48th) and getting three bronze medal games (28th, 37th and 46th); although the B-team won a gold medal in the men's ice hockey at the 12th Winter Olympics and a bronze at the second IBA Sports Championships, they're considered a different team and as a result their achievements are not counted. Anyway, current head coach Simón Montenegro turned out to be an excellent hire thanks to him leading his side to two consecutive finals and turning them into reigning champions. However, with a whole load of new players and a title on the line, will his more defensive approach be able to lead his team to the vaunted double or will he prove to be a flash in the pan?

Win song: Queens of the Stone Age - Smooth Sailing

Home to the Davenport Dockers - the most successful team in the ENIHL (Elejamian National Ice Hockey League) - and the national team. Built in 1992 to replace Dockside Stadium, which was eventually demolished in 1995, Davenport Stadium is the largest ice hockey arena in Elejamie, with a capacity of 18,500. The stadium was originally known as the Davenport Stadium but it also spent a brief spell in the early 2000s as the Rapid Beer Co. Stadium. Eventually, it was renamed the Declan Madgwick Memorial Stadium just in time for the start of the 2015/16 season, in honour of famed politician and diplomat Declan Madgwick (1927-2015).

For the record: In the northwest of Elejamie, the term "stadium" is used for any building which hosts a professional sports team even if they don't play on a pitch.

Coventry City Arena, Coventry, AVEN

Horn: Coventry Blaze 2021/22 horn

Win song: Tiesto - Ten Seconds Before Sunrise

Built in 1989, the Coventry City Arena is also known as the Coventry Arena and, with a total capacity of 17,000, it is also home to the Coventry Puffins. It's also the backup stadium for the national ice hockey and basketball teams; home to the junior and U-18 ice hockey teams; and home to the Coventry Nets basketball team. Following the end of a sponsorship deal with furniture store HomeFiller, one that had been ongoing since 2013, they reverted to a variation of their old name while they wait for a new sponsor.


My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Choose my Scorers: Yes
Choose Scoring Events: Yes
Godmod Scoring Events: Yes
RP Injuries to my Players: Yes (but nothing too serious; one person at a time and they can't be out for anything longer than two games. Killing is definitely out)
Godmod Injuries to my Players: Yes (see above)
Assign Penalties to my Players: Yes (but try not to make my players seem dirty, especially since Cerin Meloten and Harrison Blackburn are two of the nicest players on and off the ice and Stacy Saunders is more interested in getting points rather than getting himself into trouble)
Eject my Players: Yes (one ejection per match with a one game suspension and they have to serve their suspension before another player can be ejected)
Godmod Other Events: Depends on what it is but I'd recommend TGing me if you've got any other ideas


  • Stacy Saunders is still a guy, if anyone's wondering. So, if you do mention him in your RP, make sure you say "he", "him" and "his" instead of "she" and "her".
  • In the event that any of my players interest you and you want to sign them, please tell me which one you want, which club wants them and all the details.
  • Elejamie will wear their alt kit on MD1 and either the quarter-final or the semi-final if they're not the home side for the QF.
  • Danilo and Felipe Barajas are twin brothers, with Danilo being the oldest by about five minutes. If you choose to start them in your RP then please have them both on the same line.
  • Ideally there should be an acute mark over Simón because Hispano-Elejamian but I'm not too bothered if you miss it out in your RP.
  • Not only did I give Darkmania permission to make Andy Bailey his team's new head coach but I actually got in touch a while back about giving him a new head coach. Placing fourth in the WJHC gave me a good excuse to follow through with that.

There's a saying that goes "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." However, that doesn't apply if your sport's governing body sends a bunch of minor leaguers to a World Cup-style competition.

Sarzonia did just that, sending what was, in effect, a scab team of minor leaguers to the previous edition of the World Cup of Hockey. The scab players did relatively well, all things considered. The ScabStars went 3-1-2 during the group stage, losing out on a trip to the knockout rounds courtesy of a 4-3 defeat at the hands of Valanora. The ScabStars were done in by goal differential. as they were level with final qualifiers Kimi-Suomi and first eliminated third placed side Squornshelan Remnant States in won-draw-loss record. Kimi Suomi qualified for the knockout rounds with a plus-6 goal differential to the Remnant States' plus-4 and Sarzonia's plus-1.

Now? Most of the scabs are back; only this time, several of them are now suiting up with the major leaguers. And they're now joined by some of the veterans who were on the picket lines during the previous edition. Brett Tanguay, Sr. also returns to manage the team, taking on Thomas Brown as his lead assistant. Several of the veterans of previous editions also join the current team, headlined by star right wing Brett Tanguay, Jr., who brings immediate star power to a team lacking it in the previous edition. Second line centre Alyssa Hannigan also returns to the fold, along with right winger Calan Leftwich, joining her on the second line.

Veterans also join the goaltenders room with Owen Franks returning to the starting lineup. Previous starter Jacob Parsons also comes back, relegating Jack Michel, the previous edition's starter, to the role of third choice goalie.

Brett Tanguay, Sr. said the decision to go with a majority of younger players was a deliberate decision.

"We didn't want to get stale, and we believe the previous team did. That said, we wanted to have some players with experience on this team. That's why we have an Alyssa or a Calan on the team. He didn't answer when a reporter asked him if it extended to adding his son to the squad. However, that's where Brown stepped in in his introductory press conference as the top assistant manager.

"One thing our squad lacked in the previous edition was a superstar, pardon the pun," Brown said. "That's what Brett brings to the ice: He's a guy who can force the other team to assign their best defenceman to mark him and leave the door open for the rest of the players." For his part, Brett Tanguay, Jr. isn't publicly addressing the rancour that developed during the strike.

"The past is the past, we're letting it go," he said. "A lot of my teammates on the national team had been at this a long time. Several of them felt ready to either retire once and for all or focus exclusively on the domestic season. Those of us who came back are here to provide some experience and go after our goal of winning a World Cup."

Whether Sarzonia will have an opportunity to do so in this edition remains to be seen. Sarzonia entered the 49th edition as the 39th ranked team in the hockey multiverse, and only increased to No. 26 for this edition after Sarzonia failed to qualify for the knockout rounds in either of the two previous editions. That followed a missing both World Cups 46 and 47, and a first round knockout by Ko-oren in World Cup 45. Sarzonia haven't even sniffed the final since the 10th World Cup of Hockey when the Stars lost to Plutoni three games to two. Speaking of Plutoni, they're back, albeit as an unranked side.

However, the first priority for this Stars team will be to focus on what they can control.

"We can only control what we do on the ice," Brett Tanguay, Sr. said. "We're not thinking anything else."

As for the Incorporated Ice Hockey Federation, it's now shifted their focus to applying to host group stage matches at Bank of Sarzonia Arena in Nicksia, Benatar.

The arena, which just underwent a recent modernisation programme to add more robust WiFi, improved accessibility for disabled persons, and more comfortable seating, is well positioned to serve as a host venue, according to a statement issued by the IIHF.

"Bank of Sarzonia Arena is convenient to a variety of modern hotel accommodations and includes plenty of activities for any and all visitors," the statement read. "We would gladly welcome all visitors to Sarzonia for the World Cup of Hockey, or for any sporting event."

The letter also specified that the Department of External Affairs has also rescinded any restrictions previously imposed upon Anaian nations, stating that "it is the DEA's view that the restrictions no longer serve anyone's best interests. We believe it is in our best interests to turn the page and roll out the welcome mat for countries we previously unfairly withdrew it from."

TEAM CASSADAIGUA- World Cup of Hockey 50


Coach- Samantha Hudson (49)- 1st WCoH
Assistant Coach- Hailey Lockhart (42)- 1st WcoH

While the team was not necessarily terrible in the last World Cup of Hockey, they did fail to make it out of the group stage and that has led to hiring of new coaches. Hopefully, this can get the team back on track!

Typical Starting Lineup:

(Line and defensive pairings listed below are the typical pairings, but things can and will be mixed up from time to time)

Line 1:
LW- #17- Emily Barton, 25 (6'4, 201)- Power forward, very accurate shot. WCOH Debut.
C- #9- Cayla Wade, 26 (6'2, 195)- Playmaker and should do very well between these two. Although she’s got a great shot herself. WCOH Debut.
RW- #21- Tori Davis, 28 (6'1", 203) (Captain)- Sniper, but despite size, she's not afraid to get physical. One of the few on the team returning to the same position she was in before.

Line 2:
LW- #16- Amanda Norton, 24 (5'8", 174)- Speedster who handles the puck well. Small, but is able to "take hits" without getting hurt. Would be 1st liner here if taller.
C- #14- Brianne Deschamps, 25 (6'1", 188)- "North" Cassadagan recently burst onto scene. All-around shooter and passer. Elevated from the 4th line.
RW- #20- Hailee Cortez, 31 (6'6", 229)- Power forward, but loves to drop the gloves. Will make sure no one takes liberties with Norton.

Line 3:
LW- #64- Carlee Carrigan, 23 (6'4", 231)- Physical presence but does know how to put the puck in the net more than most may realize. 1st time starting.
C- #27- Brittany Hedstrom, 30 (5'10, 189) (Alt Captain)- Defensive forward, excellent checker. Brilliant on faceoffs.
RW- #28- Darrell Wesley (6'6", 233)- Defensive minded former North Cassadagan who enjoys hitting. WCOH Debut.

Line 4:
LW- #34- Thomas Needham, 22 (6'3", 200)- Power forward. Streaky. WCOH Debut.
C- #33- Sarah Prusinski, 21 (5'11", 190)- All around player. Young so prone to some mistakes, but she’s expected to develop well. WCOH Debut.
RW- #39- Pavel Romanov, 29 (5'10", 183)- Smooth stickhandler and passer. 1st time in starting lineup.

Defensive Pairing 1:
LD- #2- Hannah Briscoe, 33 (6'3", 216) (Alt Captain)- Offensive D-men, PP quarterback. Only returning d-man from last starting lineup.
RD- #3- Natalie Reynolds, 27 (6'5", 229)- While she plays with a physical edge, she’s deceptively agile with a great shot. 1st time starting.

Defensive Pairing 2:
LD- #6- Jessica Barnett, 27 (6'4", 215)- Stay at home defenseman, 1st time starting.
RD- #5- Rylie Sutton, 20 (6'1", 192)- Mobile defenseman, can QB a PP very well. Plays like a much older player. WCOH Debut.

Defensive Pairing 3:
LD- #4- Addie Mitchell, 25 (6'2", 204)- All around player, can take on any role. WCOH Debut.
RD- #7- Shannon Benford, 23 (6'5", 219)- Could use her size more, but is mostly a stay at home type. WCOH Debut.

Goalies:
Starter- #35- Ashley Christian, 25 (6'2", 197)- Butterfly style, strong puckhandler. WCOH Debut.
Backup- #30- Jesse Hall, 24 (6'4", 213)- Relies on his reflexes, also a good puckhandler. WCOH Debut.

PP Unit 1- Barton-Wade-Davis; Briscoe-Reynolds
PP Unit 2- Needham-Deschamps-Romanov; Mitchell-Sutton
PK Unit 1- Hedstrom-Wesley; Barnett-Benford
PK Unit 2- Carrigan-Cortez; Reynolds-Mitchell

Also traveling with team (scratched unless otherwise noted)

G- #31- Tyler Sherman, 33 (6'2", 200)
D- #29- Lauren Jackson, 21 (6'0", 187) WCOH Debut.
D- #26- Adam Fenton, 22 (6'2", 204) WCOH Debut.
D- #24- Tara Picketts, 33 (6’1”, 189)
D- #58- Michael Crossman, 24 (6'5" 218) WCOH Debut.
F- #90- Jerome Regnier, 25 (6'5", 222)
F- #10- Hailey Brooks, 21 (6'0, 177) WCOH Debut.
F- #8- Steffie Martinek, 25 (6'4", 211) WCOH Debut.
F- #51- Julie Herron, 23 (5'11", 181)
F- #18- Adrienne Lancaster, 22 (5'9", 173) WCOH Debut.
F- #46- Olivia Harrison, 21 (6'7", 220) WCOH Debut.

My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Choose my Scorers: Yes
Choose Scoring Events: Yes
Godmod Scoring Events: No
RP Injuries to my Players: Yes, but only say they are hurt
Godmod Injuries to my Players: No
Assign Penalties to my Players: Yes. Fights are okay with a player of mine who’s description is logical for one. I'm fine with a female player of mine getting into a fight with a male player (they know this comes with the territory) of yours as long as you have my player, at the least, put a good fight.
Eject my Players: Yes, but nothing over the top.
Godmod Other Events: No

Ko-oren - WCOH 50

Team Colours: Green, blue, yellow
Demonym: Ko-orenite
Nickname: Dragonflies, Green-and-blue
Head Coach: Deniigi Kuang (GKI)
Assistant coaches: Peter Zakharov (PLI)
Stats: Here

Goalies
G Bertus Bitterboom (23) - Lamau-Dartha Hunters
G Aduse Aedevo (20) - Aevanna Scouts
G Arame Augoven (24) - Arboren Vortex

A clear top three of goalies emerges in the Aevarea League. Bitterboom enters another WCOH as the easy choice for number one goalie, but don't rule out Aedevo's rapid development - while Bitterboom has all the fundamentals and adjustments, Aedevo's freak reflexes make him a good backup if the game calls for it. Augoven isn't far behind though, but media see his talents tied to luck more than skill - fans of the Vortex as well as the actually knowledgeable know the Arboren goalie manufactures situations that make him shine - it is skill.

Defencemen
Line 1
LD Reinier van Angelwoud (22) - Lamau-Dartha Hunters
RD Aennirin Ehoni (33) - South Aevanna Storm

Line 2
LD Audupu Aunopial (22) - Aevanna Scouts
RD Riquard Winterhaag (28) - Launott Polar Bears

Line 3
LD Evsa Aehiv (32) - Aevanna Plains Wanderers
RD Assanor Aiaros (34) - Lamau-Dartha Hunters

Substitute
LD Aenoi Alrella (26) - Serevne Northerners
LD Aedeti Aenec (29) - Noordrug Bi-state
RD Aomo Eadalin (21) - Serevne Northerners
RD Ushku Shadongudhen (26) - Aevanna Scouts

Pair 1: physical. Pair 2 is all vibes and chemistry. Pair 3 is allround and fully relying on veterans. There are options to pair up players from the same club: Aunopial with Shadongudhen, Alrella with Eadalin.

Van Angelwoud entered the league as a somewhat bland defenceman but has found his place on a hard-hitting Hunters pair. Aehiv has laid off the biggest hits as she's realising she's going to have to retire at some point and she'd like to stay in decent health after quitting - a few injury scares over the last two years made her focus on some other aspects of her game beyond brutality. Aunopial's just a really friendly guy - not the best in positioning but his ability to link up with just about anyone and making it look so intuitive makes him a decent offensive threat as well. Alrella is probably the cleverest defenceman in the league and able to communicate his thoughts well and is a good complement in any situation, but lacks physicality. Aenec is pretty alround, experienced, and is rarely caught making mistakes, so if we need an anchor, Aenec remains the go-to.

Ehoni can do it all, old but still more than good to go. A brutal hitter, but also a fantastic captain and an unmoveable object in adversity. Winterhaag is a decent offensive option, complementing Aunopial, but what the Scouts defender lacks in tactical ability, Winterhaag more than makes up for. All in all this could be a sneaky good line adding a lot in scoring. Eadalin and Shadongudhen are surprisingly allround given their shaky starts in the league - but we have to acknowledge that Shadongudhen has been in the league for 6 years and he's one of the bigger names in there - especially difficult as a Gehrennan. Eadalin is a more defensive sub option, while Shadongudhen is exclusively defensive.

Forwards
Line 1
LW Moen de Zwaluw (26) - Launott Polar Bears
C Aoere Aegomenna (22) - Arboren Vortex
RW Aerine Aorifi (36) - South Aevanna Storm

De Zwaluw is a rare option on the left wing - we don't exactly excel in producing fast, offensive players. The Polar Bear is an allround option but is very good at setting up teammates through vision and placement. Aorifi is still the best option on the other side, productive as always. Aegomenna is the best player in Ko-oren, easily. A genius in the sense that he's in the right spot, consistently great at placing shots and passes, but lacking in the ability to send his teammates where they need to go. De Zwaluw and Aorifi will have to act independently but always rely on the Vortex centre to be where the team needs him to be.

Line 2
LW Koddagana Perral (19) - West Coast Blizzards
C Birtle Montrose (24) - Aevanna Scouts
RW Woutre Heerekornuit (30) - Straudum Ice

Perral is just at the start of his career, slow-ish so far but his skills in keeping away pucks from defenders and deliver them either on goal or with a teammate and his general elusiveness are quite something. Heerekornuit is quite the opposite: lightning fast and strong, meeting opponents head-on instead of going for a quirky move. Montrose is a good middle option, the Scout knows roughly where his teammates will be at what moment and he's got all the physical tools to get to the right spot - and he's got the communication to get his teammates on board as well.

Line 3
LW Robert Dartett (26) - Straudum Ice
C Vigisaruu Lumjagau (22) - West Coast Blizzards
RW Aenva Avdu (28) - Aevanna Scouts

Purely attacking - Dartett is always directing his action at goal and will only pass back if it sets up someone for a completely clear lane shot. Avdu is the opposite option here, with good passing and even better judgement for who should have the puck at any moment. Lumjugau is just getting started but will feed very well off of this very attacking lane. The idea is that he gravitates towards Avdu in play style but can cover for any mistake Dartett might make.

Line 4
LW Enoni Aolubi (31) - Egevea Islanders
C Tiele van April (23) - Straudum Ice
RW Arinia Aolopei (30) - Serevne Northerners

Aolubi is a safe option, never makes your grouping worse but might not always add as much as you'd hope, especially for a player her age. Aolopei is largely forged in the same mould, a pretty good addition but has been described as 'dumb as rocks'. Van April should be able to glue them together and lead the charge. Let's hope it's all a little more than the sum of its parts, but doubts about the trio are warranted.

Substitute
LW Aohise Aemenenna (23) - Aevanna Scouts
C Aiaa Aolunelin (23) - Serevne Northerners
C Mathias Loenaren (28) - Lamau-Dartha Hunters
RW Tiele Loenaren (26) - Noordrug Bi-state
RW Aenime Aivobelin (24) - Aevanna Plains Wanderers

The starters at the right wing are 'experienced', a safe way to say they're getting on in age. Tiele Loenaren's star was so bright not very long ago but Kuang is going for seniors this time. Aolunelin and Mathias Loenaren could fit into any line hypothetically. If things aren't working out, expect an all Straudum line, with Dartett, Van April, and Heerekornuit. Perral and Lumjugau might both be Blizzards, but their youth make sit a little less likely to force them together hoping it will work out against the best of the multiverse. Aemenenna, Montrose, and Avdu could work out as an all-Scouts line.

Powerplay
Pair 2/Line 3 will keep the pressure on and find lanes and ways to score, dragging defenders out of position and looking for ways to punish.

Penalty Kill
Pair 3/Line 2 (or what's left of it) are defensively solid, good on the puck to keep away and whittle down the clock.

The Ko-orenite league cracked down on fighting to speed games up. Don't be surprised if the Dragonflies don't respond to a call to arms. Ice hockey is a regional (but not necessarily small) sport in Ko-oren, limited to frigid Aerellen, the temperate (but cold) northeast, and parts of the unwelcoming west coast. Venues are limited, and Aerellen's largest venue hosts multiple games per day while the season is on, so speeding up games and keeping them plannable is key. Languages used by the team are Dutch and Aerellen (Ko-orenite). Aerellen names are easily recognisable, they start with vowels, featuring many Au, Ao, Ai, Ae combinations at the start of each word. Tarrashall is also a culture that you'll run into, famous players from there include Hallady Buck and Yaller Nyan, and they often play for the West Coast Blizzards.

The league has made the move from amateurism/semi-professionalism to fully professional over the last year. To get there, some teams were moved, some merged, others folded while new teams (in different locations) sprang up to fill the void. This has left part of the fanbase bitter and resentful: their team might have moved, a 80+ year old rivalry might have disappeared, etc. The rest of the fanbase has been very welcoming: more of Ko-oren can enjoy the fastest team sport in the multiverse. Still, the league didn't exactly expand beyond its usual borders (Aerellen, the northeast, and the north coast). There's also the matter of Banija's team in Schemerdrecht: while opening up the city to ice hockey, it has taken away expansion opportunities.

Being born in the Fire Nation doesn’t exactly exude a future storied career in a sport played on ice. Yet in the small village of Kajinazumi, a household name would be born in the Kuang family; in their middle child Deniigi. Playing youth hockey all the way through the system before getting a full-ride scholarship to Republic City State University, where under one of the best hockey programs in the Republics Kuang would find himself making the Reserve Roster for the Gyatso-kai National Ice Hockey team at the age of 19 for the Seventeenth Edition of the World Cup of Hockey. He would make nine appearances on the reserves, often times subbing in for an aging Ito Pakku. His transition to starter after the retirement of Ito, as well as his continued development, led to an integral part in the first World Cup of Hockey victory for the Ice Bisons.

Following his retirement, Kuang has accepted a position at his alma mater, as an assistant coach for the RCSU men’s team. He has been entertaining coaching positions for a few AHL and RHL teams, and even an Arendallic team. His defensive style of coaching, though, might be just the perfect fit for the Dragonflies of Ko-oren, who have always been a far more defensively minded team than most others on the multi-verse stage.


International sporting success has come rather belatedly, and suddenly, to Peter Zakharov, a patient, good-humoured and almost fatherly figure who resembles a popular, rarely seen uncle at a family reunion more than he does an elite sportsman. Born on the southern island of New Hibernia to parents of Soviet descent who migrated to the Plough Islands as part of the Vital Skills Programme of the 1970s, Zakharov followed his father into engineering and has been a safety inspector at the Crabble II nuclear power station for over twenty years. Always a keen sportsman, he played both cricket and ice hockey in his youth before drifting towards the latter, playing once or twice a week at the Peaceful Atomic Energy Association, where he played in goal because it left him less tired and with more time to socialise at the end of a game.

Then came the inaugural Anaian Ice Hockey Championships, where despite his greying temples, Zakharov's old friend Paul Campbell included him in the nine-player Plough Islands team he had decided to assemble for the event, as much for his organisational skills as for his ability in the goal crease. To the surprise of everybody - not least themselves - the Plough Islanders stumbled their way to the title in Koroa City, and managed to repeat the achievement several months later at the second edition in Ko-oren. Zakharov has typically spent most of the events organising practices, liaising with federation officials, and generally shepherding the small group of Plough Islanders around as a de facto team manager, but he nevertheless played seven games across both tournaments and, save for a scrappy 5-3 win over Huayramarca in Arboren, has been a resolute and dependable presence at the back of the rink.

When Ko-orenite ice hockey supremo Erji Tehauden approached the Ice Sport Union of the Plough Islands - or rather Campbell, its only real representative - about recruiting a Plough Islander to bolster her own team's coaching staff ahead of the World Cup of Hockey, the initial reaction was befuddled disbelief. It was quickly realised, though, that ice hockey in the country could only benefit from sending someone on a barely undercover fact-finding trip to the premier tournament in the multiverse, and Zakharov readily volunteered for the task. After a few phone calls to Sutton and to Crabble, a leave of absence from the nuclear plant was arranged, and Zakharov stayed behind on the Halcyon Archipelago to share what little he knows with the Dragonflies and observe, at close quarters, how ice hockey is organised and played beyond the Celestial Ocean.

Notes: The Zenician Hockey national team is on the hot seat, from the public’s perspective more so than the Ministry of Sport’s view. The two sports selected to resurrect the national sporting scene for the Empire (Futbol and Hockey) both had very rough returns but had some glimpses of promise. The surprise outing from the futbol senior squad in the recent Copa Rushmori has inspired hope in citizens across the Empire for the future of sports as a whole but has also raised expectations that the hockey squad perform similarly in this latest edition of the WCOH. The Ministry of Sport understood from the beginning that the process could take a while for either side to get back to top level and that such a process may be on different time tables for the different squads. However, should there be a distinct lack of progress in this world cup of hockey, Minister Dimi may not have a choice but to find a new staff, and some new players, in the near future.

A Look at Canadian Dominion Hockey

Canadian Dominion hasn’t had a long history when it comes to sports, but since it’s first entrance into the 45th World Cup of Hockey, it would seem Canadian Dominion would slowly be referred to as a "hockey country,” and it would seem as if Canadian Dominion is slowly looking to have a breakout year as they have been restricted to the Round of 16 as they have been sent home multiple times, but when talking to players, it seems as if Canadian Dominion is ready and has players ready to make that push after a terrible year finishing 6th in the group. Although we will say that since its first entrance into the World Cup of Hockey, Canadian Dominion has consistently demonstrated its prowess on the ice, Despite facing strong competition from other renowned hockey nations, such as Gyatso-Kai, The Canadian Dominion has remained competitive and has even taken them to thrilling shoot-outs. While there may be times when Canadian Dominion falls short in certain matchups or encounters challenging opponents, it is important to note that their performance remains impressive and they continue to hold their own against some of the strongest hockey nations in the world. Additionally, it is worth considering that the nature of hockey allows for unexpected outcomes and surprises.

International Hockey has a home in TJUN-ia and that home is New Washington and The Rink in The Gardens! You'd think that The Gardens of New Washington, TJUN-ia's Sporting Beating Heart, would demand a bigger venue for their ice hockey arena (one of the Big 4 Sports within the Amerika Peninsula of the NAU Zone), but they wanted to pay tribute to the Secretary-General as his hometown in U1 has a small rink of similar capacity, so developers decided to build The Rink to have a similar feel. While it may be small, the fans make it sound like there are a lot more people in there - NAU ice hockey fans are known for being loud and boisterous when required.

New Washington is the Capital of the NAU Zone and for good reason as this place is filled with the bureaucracy, the community spirit and the shithousery that you expect from the City of the Free and the Home of the Bravest in TJUN-ia. Just think DC and that's New Washington, just with a 25% increase of conservatives because it can't be Amerika without them. The Field of Dreams complex is located only 10 minutes by bus from New Washington train station and there are 5 hotels within a 5-minute walk of the site, so finding accommodation shouldn't be too difficult for all those who come here. In terms of facilities, The Rink itself is available as a practice rink as well as 3 other options within a 20 minute drive of The Gardens.

(N.B. This was mostly ripped from my introduction post for the 67th World Hit Festival, although I have updated some information that was out of date, removed things that were irrelevant or retconned a detail or two)


¡Bienvenidos a Playa de Rocas!

La ciudad

Image
Clockwise from top left: La Biblioteca Española; a shot of Arena Ángeles taken at the start of Pride Month; the hallowed halls of the Palacio Legaslativo; a section of Avenido Blas de Lezo; a side street in Viejo Playa de Rocas; shops and shoppers in La Ronda; Estadio Metropolitano, home to CF Playa de Rocas; one of the many rock beaches that gives Playa de Rocas its name.


Hombres, mujeres y personas no binarias, welcome to Playa de Rocas. Located in the south-east of the country, this fair city made up of 23 barrios over six distritos as well as little over 210,000 people is not only the capital of the autonomous tract of Nuevo Paraíso but is also the hub of Hispano-Elejamian culture. The vast majority of telenovelas are filmed or worked on here; a number of famous artists, writers and musicians are from or worked in the city; it was the Mecca for the Agró scene of the 1980s and 1990s that saw teenagers and young adults repeatedly jump up and down and hit surfaces to pounding electronic body music; and the Orquestra Sinfónica de Nuevo Paraíso is one of the Big Four orchestras in Elejamie. Established in the 1860s as a small town along the rocky beaches that gave it its name, there was a substantial amount of growth due to its fishing industry and arid farmland. An influx of new arrivals, some from the old Spanish homeland but also some from some of its colonies (former or then-current) and a few from elsewhere, lead to the city expanding and, by the time Elejamie had declared self-rule in 1912 the town was big enough to become a city in its own right and was declared the tractal capital of Nuevo Paraíso the following year. While the city would have its various up and downs (most notably the golden age of the 1970s that’d lead to the austerity of the 1980s), today it still remains a diverse city with many different cultures, wide open spaces and plenty of things to see and do. These include but aren’t limited to:

  • La Ronda: The ring road in the heart of the city, this pedestrianised bit of land is home to a number of shops, restaurants, art galleries, the odd food stand and even a small park (Parque de la Juventud). While getting to and from there is a small hassle by car due to it being located off Avenido Blas de Lezo, the main road in the city, there is a subway station in the area and a bus station within walking distance.
  • Centre de Convenciones de Nuevo Paraíso (CCNP): The convention centre located in the Viriato barrio, just inside the Centro distrito but a short walk away from the Primero distrito. Hosts Comic-Con Elejamie in even numbered years since 1996, the TEKNOKON computer hacking convention since 2008 and the 67th World Hit Festival.
  • Various other stadia including the 40,500-seater Estadio Metropolitano (no, not that one), home to CF Playa de Rocas as well as a stadium for athletics events; the 10,000-seater Estadio del Rey, home to the CR Los Reyes rugby union team as well as CF Playa de Rocas Femenino; the 13,000-seater Arena San Tibulo (named after Saint Tibulus, the patron saint of Elejamie), home to the Nuevo Paraíso y Valledorado cricket team as well as the Universidad de la Playa de Rocas university rugby team; and the 2,500-seater Parque Luis Ernesto García Vasquez (named after a war hero during the Anglo-Hispanic skirmishes in the 1850s), home to CF Playa de Rocas B, CF Universidad and non-league side CF Atocha, as well as the training ground for CR Los Reyes as of 2021.
  • Viejo Playa de Rocas: The old town that was the original basis for the city. While some of it is still inhabited, a fair amount of it remains in ruins following the 1909 earthquake that killed 600 people. These ruins are still a popular tourist attraction and it’s not uncommon for people to have photographs there, whether it be for weddings or for modelling shoots.
  • The two main cathedrals in the city: Catedral de Nuestra Señora de Gracia, which has space for 1,500 worshippers; and Catedral de San Jorge, which is not only one of three Greek Orthodox cathedrals in the whole country but is also only one of two non-Catholic cathedrals in the entirety of Spanish Elejamie (the other is the Anglican Catedral de San Miguel in Valledorado, VADO). When not in service, both offer guided tours available in both English and Spanish.
  • La Franja: The longest beach in the city at just over 2.5km (1.55 miles), it stretches along the southern coast of the city and is another popular tourist destination due to its uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean, the flat rocks that can be used as impromptu seats and the fine, flat sands make picnicking an ideal option even if it isn't the ideal weather for it at the moment.
  • La Biblioteca Española: One of the biggest libraries in the country, you can find a wide variety of books originally written in the Spanish language here. No matter the genre, the dialect or even how popular the author is/was, there’s a good chance that you can find a copy here.
  • Palacio Legislativo de Nuevo Paraíso: The parliament building (or Tractal Chamber to give it its proper term over here) for Nuevo Paraíso, Although it’s closed to the public Monday-Saturday from 10am-6pm as that’s when it’s usually in session, there are guided tours from 7am-10am and 6pm-8pm on the aforementioned days. It’s closed on Sundays.
  • A variety of museums including but not limited to the Playa de Rocas Natural History Museum, the Gregorio Buenaventura Art Museum, the Playa de Rocas Transport Museum, the Hispano-Elejamian History Musuem and the Plaza de Toros de Playa de Rocas, a former bullring that has since been converted into a bullfighting museum following the sport’s nationwide ban in 1997.
  • Las Tres Hermanas: Two giant rocks and a small islet just off the eastern coast of the city, more often than not used as a resting place for seabirds. There are often boat tours to and from Las Tres Hermanas to see all the wildlife hanging around there.

But you're not here looking for a quick holiday during the Winter months, even though it'd still be relatively warm here (20-22°C, 68-71°F) at the start of February and will only get warmer as the month goes on. Oh no. You're looking for somewhere to play ice hockey. We've got you covered.

Arena Ángeles is, as you can probably guess by the name, the home arena for the Ángeles de la Playa de Rocas ice hockey team in the ENIHL, although the Tigres de la Playa de Rocas basketball team (who play in the EPBL) also call it home. Located in the Zona Financiera barrio of the Centro distrito and completed in time for the 2013/14 season, around 18,250 people are able to fit in and watch a game of ice hockey. However, that's not the only thing there. There are a few extras as well. For example, there are two practice rinks, Pista Uno and Pista Dos, so teams are able to hone their skills before they officially take to the ice*. There are a few restaurants, serving the usual grub like hot dogs, burgers et al but also the official regional (and unofficial national) sandwich called the pepito; a slab of grilled flank or strip steak (or occasionally pork or chicken), topped with caramelised onions and peppers, in a roll and served con o sin fritas. There are a couple of bars around the arena, with one being a bit more expensive due to it being a brewpub, so you can either celebrate in style or drown your sorrows depending on how your team did. There are a couple of merch stores, one for Ángeles stuff and the other for Tigres stuff, so if you want to pick up some mementos of your time here go right ahead. And there are even executive and party suites, so if you're willing to shell out that little bit extra, you can watch the match in style. Just be aware that, while there is English-language signage, all the PA system announcements and commentary will be in Spanish (except in emergencies where it'll be in Spanish and English).

Getting there's not a problem, although be prepared for a huge amount of traffic come game day. If you're taking the SubteRocas metro system, the Ángeles station is only a block away and can easily be accessed from the Linea de la Estrella or the Linea del Borbón, although expect heavy usage on match days. Fortunately the Linea del Borbón also stops at Asturias station, which is usually a bit less busier at the cost of being more of a walk. While there are bus lines to and from the arena, most notably the 400, 404, 405, 407 and 409 routes, ice hockey governing boards can arrange some private bussing for fans if they so wish. There's quite a big parking lot around the arena, as well as a couple of parking garages that are cheaper at the cost of being a small distance away. And, of course, you can either take a taxi or use your rideshare app of choice.

Getting to Playa de Rocas itself. isn't an issue either. For sea-farers, Elejamie is a Pacific island nation and PdR is right on the coast, so the Puerto de Nuevo Paraíso is a good place to stop off. For air travel, you have one of two options. You can either fly into L. E. García Vazquez Airport, the third busiest in the nation that sees little under a million travelling through it every year. Or you can fly in through the smaller Aeródromo Playa de Rocas, especially if you've flown in on a private jet or you've landed in a different city first. If you're a fan we recommend the former, if you're part of a national ice hockey team in some capacity we recommend the latter. On the upside, while Spanish is primarily spoken in this part of the country virtually the entire population speaks English to some degree and signs tend to have English translations underneath, so getting around won't be much of an issue.

* Though in the event that both of these rinks are occupied the 15,000-seater Arena de Pablo Franco, which used to host Ángeles and Tigres but now serves as the home base for the Universidad de la Playa de Rocas ice hockey and basketball teams, might let you borrow their facilities to train.

The successful experiment of Plutoni is a technologically-advanced anarchy which claims to be located on the far outskirts of the solar system, colonized a long time ago (but not so long ago that it wasn't already a dwarf planet, alas). Historically it has been a robot-majority society. In recent years, it has withdrawn from the international scene, preferring brain emulations to hardware that interacts in the physical world. You can probably ignore all of this.

The current team is a throwback; they are all androids who have somewhat of a blocky, retro look. They are humanoid-shaped and -sized, and tend to be on the larger, stronger side; they are not very agile and can have slow reaction times. They tend not to be very confrontational and would rather shrug off physical play than retaliate. Style mod 0.

Several months ago

“And you’re sure we can get San Valerie and the Igloo up to Empirical AND WCOH standards by the time the group stage starts?”

Deputy Minister of Sport Heung Soo-min was silent as he looked over the data, timelines and price estimates one more time before answering the Emperor’s question. “I have been assured that as long as there are no delays, it should be done with about a week or two to spare. But we’ll have to submit the bid before the work is done as the submission deadline is before the inspection for the selection timeline.” The Emperor grumbled as the two of them looked upon the city from the Mayor’s mansion.

The two of them were on a business-related trip to the northernmost hub city of San Valerie, the only port on the U.N.S (UnNamed Sea, called so because the nations bordering said sea could still not come to an agreement about what to call it). Luckily, it was one of the least damaged cities from the civil conflict due to its natural sea border, combined with a respectable Coastal Force, allowed the Terra Force to focus all efforts on the remaining border of the city, stopping almost all attempts from the ZFS. Still, a siege that lasted for about 3.5 years and the occasional rocket assault meant that reconstruction had a slightly later start than some of the other cities.

“Will the frozen survivors be able to practice while the reconstruction is ramping up?,” asked the Emperor. “They’ll be able to play here at the moment but they’ll most likely have to transition over to Old Maiz or New Citium once we tear down both the Igloo and the Big Hall to combine elements of the two into a brand new arena worthy of a national team,” replied Heung. The Emperor wasn't excited with the prospect of not finishing in time but he knew how important getting joy and normalcy back into the lives of the citizens would be to the overall reconstruction process.

The Emperor snapped his fingers.

“Consider it approved.”

Present day

“Igloo McIglooface? Is that REALLY an option the public gave?,” the Emperor asked with confusion displayed on his face.

“There will always be pranksters when it comes to these kinds of things. The top option appears to be ‘The Big Igloo.’ An homage to both the national team’s old arena as well as the San Valerie Priests’ arena that was on the other side of the city.” The Emperor nodded, looking over the pictures in the progress reports for the arena. “I like it. Let’s make it official, with a ceremony and everything. I guess we should also be ready just in case our bid wins so we can surprise everyone with the news then and there.”

Deputy Minister Heung nodded. “Of course, I’ll get our top people working on getting everything set up and timed accordingly so there are hopefully no leaks.”

“Indeed.”

New Arena:
Name: The Big Igloo
Location: San Valerie
Capacity: 23,000 for national team (19,000 for San Valerie Priests)
Image

San Valerie is the northernmost city in the Empire of Zenic residing in the Leinz region (which covers most of the northwest of the Empire). It is a coastal city with the northern area touching the UNS (UnNamed Sea). As such, the change in climate between seasons is more extreme than in any other city: the winters are especially brutal as the wind makes the temps feel significantly less than they are while the summers are hot and humid with the breeze only helping a bit. It relies heavily on maritime commerce and tourism for its economy. The city was chosen for both its rich amateur history in hockey (winning the most amateur titles in the Empire’s history) and for always having something to do, no matter what the season.

This is the Hockey Saint-Jean-Jacques' executive board meeting.


Pierrette Lamoureux (Hockey Saint-Jean-Jacques' CEO): Today, we're discussing the national team one last time before the WCoH starts. The team has already been selected. Thank you Gilles for assembling the team and recruiting our players... So, last night I asked y'all to read Quebec and Shingoryeo's host bid that we received through fax. Especially the venue bid paragraph that I printed out. Here's a copy:

Group Stage - Venue Bids:

If the bid is successful, the Hockey Quebec (OOCly me) will accept venue bids for nations to ICly co-host the group stage. Each participating nation, regardless of their pots, will be welcomed to host a venue for consideration, with 4 or 7 venues selected to host the first group stage alongside a venue in Quebec and Shingoryeo which will host Group A.

[...]

There will be no bids accepted for the knockout round of the competition, as two venues in Joongyeong, Quebec & Shingoryeo, will be hosting the remainder of the tournament. It is also to be noted that hosting of the bids will be strictly IC, with all OOC scorinations (excluding any knockout round matches possibly involving IAQ) done by me.


Gilles Ladouceur (General Manager of Team SJJ et BoS): So, we're gonna bid?

Ryan McRae (Board Member): Yes yes yes!

Marie-Christine Poisson (Board Member): This is not a good idea. This is not a good idea. Financially we can't afford it, it will cost a lot. A lot I say!

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): Since we have one objection, we have to vote. But before we vote, let me explain that the cost is not a problem. We will have major sponsors, many tourists from participating nations and all over Anaia will come. It's gonna be big!

Marie-Christine Poisson (Board Member): Let's process the vote now then.

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): Ok, if you agree that we put a host bid, please raise your hand... (counting)... 4 votes for yay.

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): Now, if you disagree with this proposal, please raise your hand... (counting)... 1 nay.

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): Any abstention? Please raise your hand... (counting)... 1 abstention.

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): 4 yes, 1 no and 1 abstention, we will bid!

Sophie Sansoucy (Board Member): So which arena is gonna host it? Can we select a dozen of arenas and tour all around Saint-Jean-Jacques et Burnham-On-Stove and Nova Calania?

Ryan McRae (Board Member): If I'm correct, we can only select one arena... let's do it in Burnham-on-Stove! Let's say at the Burnham-on-Stove City Coliseum. Home of the Golden Seals.

Gilles Ladouceur (General Manager): Nah, my boys don't wanna go to Burnham. Let's do it in SJJ!

Ryan McRae (Board Member): Excuse me... Ethan and Emily would preffer to play in Burnham...

Marie-Christine Poisson (Board Member): Excuse me... not all of them are boys. We have 19 men and 8 women on the team, including the not in uniform ones.

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): Ok any other location proposal?

Guy DeBellefeuille (Board Member): Why not in the historic Saint-Jean-Jacques.. the Colisée DeBellefeuille, named after my grandfather, and home of the Nordiques, the best team in Saint-Jean-Jacques!

Sophie Sansoucy (Board Member): Excuse me Mr DeBellefeuille, but the Baie-Sainte-Marguerite Admirals have 2 championships since 2023 and the Nordiques have none.

Gilles Ladouceur (General Manager): That's a good choice... but the arena might be a bit small?

Bruno Vadeboncoeur (Board Mmeber): Why not in downtown Saint-Jean-Jacques... the Uranium Extracting Pledge Arena, home of the Kraken! This arena went through major renovations a couple of years ago.

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): Ok. Enough propositions, let's go through a secret vote. I'm handing down some pieces of paper. Please write your choice of arena between the following:

1) Burnham-on-Stove City Coliseum
2) Colisée DeBellefeuille
3) Aréna de l'engagement d'extraction d'uranium (Uranium Extraction Pledge Arena)

*Everyone secretly votes*

*Pierrette collects the vote in a hat and hands it down to her secretary.

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): (to her secretary) Please can you count it, François?

François (secretary): So... 3 votes for Uranium Pledge... 2 for DeBellefeuille and just 1 for Burnham.

Guy DeBellefeuille (Board Member): I can't believe the Kraken was selected instead of the Nordiques!

Marie-Christine Poisson (Board Member): It could have been worse, I'm glad no one proposed to play hockey in the Great Calanian Desert.

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): Thank you all, so we're gonna bid with the Aréna de l'engagement d'extraction d'uranium, also known as Uranium Extraction Pledge Arena in English. François, I want you to gather all the information you can about the arena and send a perfect bid to Quebec and Shingoryeo. Thanks!

Pierrette Lamoureux (CEO): This is all for the meeting, see y'all next month for the post-World Cup meeting. Thank you.

Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer is a city state of 78 square kilometers located in Anaia and founded in the 18th century by Jean-Jacques Le Boucanier (John James The Buccaneer), a pirate of unknown North or Central Calanian origin who decided to retire from piracy and found his own nation south of his country of origin.

Elections are outlawed in Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer. The national animal is the tapir, which you can see wandering in our streets. It's also our team nickname.

Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer is known for it's local gastronomy based on tapir meat. Meals like tapir burgers, tapir parmentier (cottage pie), spaghetti with tapir meatballs and tapir blanquette are very popular. The city is also a big producer of cheese, ranked first in Anaia in Cheese Exports, and known especially for the Jean-Jacquois Blue Cheese. The city, with 775 878 inhabitants, is known for it's many restaurants, pubs and night clubs. There is many hotels whitin Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer which can accomodate players, coaches, journalists and fans! Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer also have two privately owned beaches. These two are among the most beautiful Nova Calanian beaches!

Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer and Burnham-on-Stove has a tropical rainforest climate (Köppen classification of Af). We have high mean annual temperatures, small temperature ranges and rain that falls throughout the year. A tropical rainforest climate is typically hot, very humid, and wet. Average high range from 28 °C to 32 °C and average low is 24 °C all year long. Between august to november we have between 100 and 175 mm of rainfall. 250 mm of rainfall in january and february. Then 180-200 mm in march and april and finally over than 250 mm of rainfall in april to july with a peak of 350 mm of rainfall in may and june.

The 50th World Cup of Hockey will be played in may, so expect a lot of rain outside, but, luckily, hockey is an indoor sport.

There is a National Sports Complex 5 minutes away (no traffic) or 20 minutes away (with traffic) from the Uranium Extraction Pledge arena with 3 training arenas. Teams can chose wither they preffer to train at the host arena or at one of the three training arenas.

VENUE BID FOR WcoH 50:

On behalf of everyone that is a part of Cassadaigua Hockey, we would like to first thank the organizers at Hockey Quebec for the opportunity that they have provided nations to present a venue for consideration during the group stage. It is a milestone edition for the World Cup of Hockey, the 50th edition, and as a nation that has won the 50th edition in baseball and soccer, would be honored to have the chance to put our name on the 50th hockey version at least in this way, so that it can also be memorable to us.

Our Arena for Consideration is the: Dagan Airways Arena in beautiful Concord Heights, Cassadaigua.

The arena seats 22,027 people, not including the luxury suites. The lower bowl provides excellent sight lines of all of the action, and consists of 12,538 seats.

Behind the lower bowl, we have two levels of luxury suites, providing the finest of accommodations to those that are inside of them. These guests can provide finely cooked meals from a large variety of cuisines that are available. Successful chefs that are graduates of the Concord Heights Culinary Institute prepare these meals. Those meals are included in the price of the suite. However, it is not only the fans in the luxury suites that can enjoy these offerings, as they are also available at food areas around the concourse.

The upper bowl consists of the remaining seats, which is a little more than 9,500. The layout of the facility ensures that there are no obstructed views in the upper seating area, and while the fans are a little further from the action, they are still able to follow the play quite well. An alternative for them will be to watch the game from the large screen video board on the scoreboard. Speaking of the scoreboard, this not only tells people the basics, such as the score, shots on goal, and game time, but monitors time on ice for the players that are currently on the ice, and keeps fans in tune with other statistics as the game goes on.

Merchandise & Concessions: We’ve mentioned the wide variety of food options that are available, but will also provide the opportunity for each nation that is participating in a game to operate one such restaurant per game of theirs that can provide their traveling fans will cuisine that they are more accustomed to. Concessions will rotate merchandise within reason, to account for the nations that are involved in each game while also providing more general merchandise pertaining to the specific tournament, or hockey in general.

Tickets: The Dagan Airways Arena will provide tickets at a reasonable cost for all fans. 60% of all available tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis to everyone and anyone. The remaining 40% of tickets will be allotted specifically to the delegations that will be participating in the game up until three days before game time. Should any of the allotment be unsold at that point, they will become available to anyone.

Parking: There will be no charge for fans to park vehicles in the arena parking garages. This is courtesy of the Royal Palace itself, as they will cover all of our expense to provide parking services for the event.

Our Sponsor: Dagan Airways is proud to sponsor this great arena, and along with that, they will provide multiple non-stop flights per day (unless prohibited to do so) during the competition from Concord Heights to the national capital of all participating nations at very reasonably priced fares. They will also be willing to work with airlines of other countries so that connection times from one city to the national capital in that nation are reasonable and also not excessive.

Lodging: There are plenty of options within Concord Heights and the surrounding arena. The nation’s most popular brand, Sleep With Us hotels, is also a secondary sponsor of the arena and will provide discounted rates to all fans that are attending the games.

Arena History: This is modern arena that has hosted international games in the past, including the final of the most recent International Basketball Championships. It is also an active host of NSCAA Basketball every year. It’s a versatility allows it to also transition to hockey and be a concert venue without any issue.

About Concord Heights:

Concord Heights is the capital of Cassadaigua and hosted many international championships in the past. The city, which is also the most populous in the country, has a lot that one can do, whether sports themed, or not. Chances are, you are coming here for sports, so feel free to visit the Cassadaigua National Sports Hall of Fame. Here you will learn the stories of the legends of Cassadagan sport, including those who have their numbers retired from the soccer team on monument wall in the north end zone of the stadium (the concept here is like Monument Park at Yankee Stadium). While at the Hall of Fame, you can also learn about other Cassadagan legends and earn new or greater appreciation for those who helped us become the first nation to win a title in the five greatest sports in the World.

Those wishing to do something non-sports themed can find additional museums across the city, including the national museum which pays homage to the past leaders of the nation. You can also take a guided tour of the grounds of the Palace itself where the Queen resides, though access to the Palace itself is not open to the public. The city is also home to prestigious learning institutions, such as the University of Concord Heights.

The Concord Heights Beauty School will provide 30% off any services on campus during the competition. After all, at a major competition many fans will want to look their best.

Conclusion:

Once again, Cassadaigua Hockey thanks Hockey Quebec for the opportunity to present this bid. Should it be successful, we will host our games with dignity and respect for all fans that attend.

"This is our chance to reaffirm our place in the international ice hockey landscape. No player active today remembers the Cup organised right here in Ko-oren - I'm pretty sure no player who's going to be at the Cup this time was even alive back then. The problem is that we can include only one stadium in a bid to host, and in that capacity I've summoned you all here."

In the room, overlooking the city of Aevanna, five people were present.

"I appreciate you've all taken the time to come here. I also realise we don't speak to each other in a physical meeting that often, so to get everyone up to speed, it's wise to quickly introduce ourselves. I'm Elafa Adoella, interim president of Ko-orenite ice hockey, replacing Erji Tehauden who, as you know, is now the president of multiversal ice hockey. To set some expectations: I'm not going to argue in favour or against any location, but I'm interested to hear your cases."

The second speaker barely allows a pause after 'cases'. "I'm Airitu Airature, management of The Dome right here in Aevanna. Welcome to Ko-oren's home of ice hockey. I think it would be a disservice to how the sport is enjoyed in this country to even consider bidding with another stadium."

A few moments of silence, then Elafa nods in the direction of the third and fourth speakers. Two Banijans. George Idongo in charge of operations at Schemerdrecht Caribou, the GBHL club with its headquarters in Ko-oren. The other is Symon Doresaruten, the manager for anything in and around the Schemerdrecht Indoor Arena, nicknamed 'the Boombox' for its shape and acoustics. The Caribou have been in the Boombox for longer than the Aevarea League - that's Ko-oren's own ice hockey league - has existed.

The fifth: "Hildeware Dajigweladen, and I'd like to call attention to the heritage of ice hockey in Seterdahn, Launathi, Elinum, and Nyashawill - mainland cities with a tremendous history in ice hockey. Not as contentious as Shemurdar - Schemerdrecht," she nods to the Banijans, "and easier to get to than Aevanna."

The next hour went roughly as drawn up by the few members of the media who knew about the meeting. Airitu and Symon made the meeting about themselves, with Hildeware getting a word in sideways every so often to stress that there are more sides to Ko-orenite ice hockey than just the Schemerdrecht-Aevanna debate. Elafa swayed between the two sides, until the hour was almost up. "We're going to need a decision, and if you can't work it out, we'll go with any of Hildeware's compromises."

George Idongo had largely stayed out of this debate, unprepared for how heated the clash between Airitu and Symon was, but wanted to stress how much the city had embraced the Caribou - fully aware of how well that argument would land with Airitu. "But what experience represents best what the sport is about in this country?" Airitu kept interjecting - and to be fair, with the lack of answers to that question already spoiling what Elafa's decision was going to be. Hildeware was asked which of her four cities she'd propose: Seterdahn (Straudum) and it's largest-outside-of-Aevanna stadium, but without recent success? Launathi (Launott) with recent success but its barely 8000-seating dome? Elinum was barely even mentioned at this point. But there was the second-oldest club in Ko-oren and the team that represented mainland ice hockey for so long - Nyashawill. The Lacharrailu stadium was at least as historical as the Aevanna Dome in the number of memorable moments but the vicegrip of Aevanna on the sport has been unlike anything else these last few decades.

"I think I've heard enough. I will go with the Aevanna Dome - a first in WCOH history if it gets selected."

The city of Aevanna (Ehbanna in Gehrennan) hosts four out of twelve Aevarea League teams, and all four play their home games in the Dome. Originally constructed as a national team arena to counterbalance the west coast's Lacharrailu and the northeast's Marten Kuijper Stadium, the Scouts occupied the Dome for their home games immediately as it became available. And they were so successful there, stringing together championships, with finals and playoffs all getting the Dome as its backdrop, that to most neutral fans the stadium became the neutral postseason venue. Not long after, the two other Aevanna clubs, the Explorers and Mariners, left their small, dilapidated places for the Dome as well. Two suburban teams formed - the Storm and the Wanderers - and they got their own smaller suburban rinks, but after the Explorers-Mariners merger they were also allowed to play in what had become the ice hockey capital of Ko-oren and the ice hockey stadium of this part of Anaia.

With four occupants, there are plenty of practice opportunities in and around the stadium as well as the city. The Storm's and the Wanderers' suburban headquarters have good rinks as well, and the Scouts and the Ex-Ma also have their practice facilities outside of the Dome. Further out, the Egevea Islanders' stadium is also available, a 30-minute drive away from the centre of Aevanna.

The city is used to its fair share of sports tourism - in fact, that's just about the only tourism the city gets - but with large numbers expected, the cities of Egevea and Altiora are expected to chip in (for hotel rooms) as well. Aevanna is the capital of the northeast with its own small airport, while Altiora is the gateway to the far north - ferries for the northern island of Aekona depart from there. Egevea is barely smaller than Aevanna but doesn't have the same polar mythos. The three cities are well connected via rail and road. As for other things to do: Aevanna's entertainment is entirely sports-oriented. For nature, Eluvami Lake near the dormant volcano called Auka offers beautiful views and on clear days you can see the Celestial Ocean and the Salamantic Sea envelop the island entirely.
