How have you all been in TVF the last couple of days, personally I'm doing quite well, I've also been appointed in the government as the immigration deputy minister which is an oppurtunity I'm gonna try to make the most of.

Hello TVF, this is an obligatory reminder that if you are not in the regional Discord, it is highly encouraged and recommended to be there. It's a far better medium for communicating and interacting with the community.

Best members and allies of TVF

Today I have officially taken on the role as acting Minister of Immigration for The Versutian Federation which is something I'm very proud of and a responsiblity which I'm happy to fullfill.

Over the last while I have moved a new nation to TVF, made that nation a citizen, have given my advice and ideas for the Ministry of Immigration, and have tried to be as active as possible in the region. I am also the Minister of Domestic Affairs in TVF embassy DSA and thus already have other experience from which to draw from.

Tomorrow after a needed rest I will make an announcement considering my ideas and actions to overhaul the MoI and start a discussion about the ministry and activity in TVF.

Welcome Byakko to TVF!

I will be moving my nation now to a new region. I have been wanting to change now for a while. My nation's government is based partly off of the country I live in. I will now look for a region which is more like my country, culture, and beliefs.

A Curious Message: Invitation to Werewolf XIX
Greetings, friends of Wintreath! I hope this dispatch finds you and your nations well. I happened to find this message here that you might find interesting so I'm forwarding it to you.

Subject: Wintreath Calls

Hello Omega Visitor,

Greetings from your local Mercenary crew. We need warm bodies for a new mission. Or cold blooded. We donít discriminate.

Hereís the gig: It seems a few less than desirables found their way into a local colony, and there is a fair amount of credits in it for whomever helps get them out. We want those credits. You want to live.

You interested? You better be, or we will hunt you down. Better to go down fighting than to be hunted by you know who. Head to the Linkrecruiterís office, lower ring of Afterlife. Bring your own gear. Donít die if you wish to be paid.

This mission does not make you an official member of any mercenary group. It just ensures your survival another day.

Weíll see you planetside.

Werewolf FAQs

What is Werewolf? How do I play?

If you've heard of or played Mafia or Town of Salem, this is very much like it. At the start of the game, players are divided into two groups: a small group of bad guys (wolves) and a large group of good guys (villagers). The game goes in turns with two phases: day and night. During the day phase all players vote for someone they believe is a wolf, with the person with the most votes being killed off. Then during the night phase, the wolves select a villager to eliminate.

The goal of the game for the villagers is to figure out who the wolves are based on their behaviour during the game, and vote them off during the day phase, while the goal for the wolves is to hide their identity, manipulate the day vote so that villagers are voted out, and further eliminate villagers during the night phase. The group that eliminates the other wins the game.

Where is the game played?

The game is played on our Linkoff-site forums, so a forum account is necessary (you can register one Linkhere!). Citizenship is not required to play Werewolf!

How much time does it take to play?

Werewolf usually lasts a few weeks, but only requires a few minutes a day to play.

Each day phase usually lasts 2 days, and each night phase usually lasts 1. You'll want to take at least 15-20 minutes during each day phase to read what other people have posted, post your own replies, and vote on who you want to eliminate at the end of that phase. If you're a wolf or have a role that requires taking action during the night phase, you'll want to take a few minutes to send that action to the game host via forum private message.

Yes, it's an invitation to our next game of Werewolf/Mafia on our forums, which will be Mass Effect themed, starting on Saturday! Werewolf on the forums is a fun game of intrigue and deceit, and only takes a few minutes every round, which usually lasts two days. Check out the dispatch above for all the information from how to play to what you need to do to sign up. I hope to see you in the game! :)

Hello everyone! How's everyone's day been?

Alright and yours?


Been more like 3 weeks. Very sorry for the late reply, my day today was pretty good.

I would like to apply for the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs. This is my home region and I really want to give back. After the...falling out (to put it very lightly) last year I returned and wish to serve again because of the everlasting kindness of the people of this great Federation. I believe that my terms previously as MoFA didn't go too badly and I was rather capable and fulfilled my duties well. While this may be an 'archive' I still believe that the Versutian Federation can be fully restored. I don't believe there shall be elections for the position, but if there will be, I'd like to declare my candidacy prior to them.

Thank you so much and glory to the Versutian Federation!

"Unfortunately due to our lack of a minister of foreign affairs embassy requests will be severly delayed."

Can I be the Foreign Affairs Minister? Is there a election?

Not anymore I'm afraid. There isn't anyone to run in the elections or vote in them.

The Seal of the Union of Democratic States
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs

The Union of Democratic States is in the process of restructuring its embassy policy towards regions that the Union has signed treaties with. This is part of a wider effort to make foreign affairs portfolios more manageable and foreign interaction increasingly forum-oriented. Subsequently, the Union is closing its embassy with your region. Do not fret, however, the Union of Democratic States has reserved for your region an embassy on our forum. You can visit and post on your reserved board here: The Union of Democratic States harbors no ill will against your region and is closing this embassy for the reasons stated above. If you have questions or concerns please contact North Plegia.

Good evening.

After much deliberation, it has been determined that The Versutian Federation should be dissolved. Leadership has determined that effective immediately, there will be no efforts to revive the region nor the Versutian brand elsewhere. Embassies and treaties have been nullified.

Over the coming days, there will be several small events, hosted on the NS Forums, commemorating our great region's history and the leaders who made it possible. We will post a link here and in Discord to the thread.

We thank everyone for their participation in the region.

RIP TVF. It saddens me seeing this happen to a region that I once held in such distaste due to the company I was surrounding myself with. I know I have stated sorry for my actions in the past multiple times, but I am honestly still sorry. I'm sure if I had not cooperated with the one person that I was cooperating with, I would have stayed in this region and really would have tried to use my position at the time to make things right, like I originally planned. However, I left for Audax, I grew distasteful, and well you all know how that played out.

Weird honestly, I finally get the possession of my region back, and then I find out that one region I always tried to make things right by after all the controversy is now dead.
