So, thoughts on the new indiana jones movie that's been announced? Well, not announced, but you know... Going to happen

Hello everyone!
This is Talamia, General Cabinet Aide for Democratic Socialist Assemblyís Ministry of Role-Play.

I would gladly extend to all Forest members an invitation to become part of the Comrades Cup, the very first football tournament in the history of our region. My country will host the event. Itís going to be a tournament for national football teams in the style of the FIFA World Cup.

The Comrades Cup is the first official event launched by DSAFF, the newly formed DSA Association Football Federation. The DSAFF was born with the aim of encouraging sports role-play within our region. The birth of the federation is the first step in a long-term project to give importance to NationStates' Left in the football field.

It is not mandatory to be part of DSAFF in order participate to the Comrades Cup, but we would be honored if any of Forest nations would join the project and have fun with us.

Here you can find a link to the guide on how to join:

A GUIDE TO



If you are here, it is because Auxe Aggelia and Gian Gianvilipendio did it again. They set you up.

Or maybe you are just a football fan, like Talamia is.

Do you want to join DSAFF but don't know how or why?

This is the right place for you. Follow this guide and find the answers to your questions



What is the DSAFF?

  • The Democratic Socialist Assembly Football Federation (DSAFF) is a major administrative and governing body of association football. Its goal is to create a community interested in sports' role-playing in the DSA. The DSAFF will cover national and club competitions, connecting the nations of the DSA and allowing them to compete for major football awards.

    The first competition that DSAFF is going to organize is the Comrades Cup 2021, a tournament for national selections similar to the FIFA World Cup. The winner will be crowned the first-ever DSA world champion.

    The Comrades Cup will kick-start a ranking system and set the stage for the creation of the DSA Champions League.

    This tournament will be played between the winning and second clubs of the domestic leagues of each interested country. The creation of this second tournament will give way to a system of players transfermarket and to a lot more of role-playing.



Who can take part in the DSAFF?

  • All the nations within the DSA. You are not required to be a member of congress or to be on the official map.



How do I join the DSAFF?

  • Send Talamia a telegram on NationStates or a private message on Discord, in which you specify if you are interested in joining the federation, if you are interested in entering your national team in the Comrades Cup 2021 or if you interested in both.



What will happen next?

  • You will be assigned a DSAFF code. After that we will be waiting until the federation has reached a sufficient number of members to be able to start the Comrades Cup.



What do I do in the meantime?

  • Two words: role-playing.

    To be part of the DSAFF and participate in the Comrades Cup you will have to prove the existence of the football reality within your country.



But how?

  • Through a factbook, you will have to give life to your national team: players called up, uniforms, colors, badges, stadiums and any kind of detail or backstory you would like to add! This is the time to let your imagination run wild: the future of your team will depend on your initial decisions.



I'm in! But I've never done anything like this, how do I start?

  • Don't worry: Talamia is here to help you out. Useful templates and dedicated sites will be made available to all DSAFF members.

    You can start by visiting the official page of the Talamian national team or the Talamian Alfa League as references:

nation=talamia/detail=factbook/id=1352858 nation=talamia/detail=factbook/id=1250234



Where will the DSAFF come to life?

  • All activities of DSAFF members will have their own secure space. We are still working on it. A channel in the DSA server? A space on our forum? A dedicated server? In any case, we will have our own place to meet, keep the federation alive and play sport role-playing.


How will the Comrades Cup work?

  • The tournament will be mostly RP based. Pre and post-matches, interviews, match narrations. The more you will post, the more we will get to know of your national football team, and the more you will increase your chances to win the cup! Everything will be in your hands. Except the results, which are going to be xcorinated by me.

    As the founding nation of DSAFF, in fact, Talamia will host the first edition of the tournament. Descriptions of cities, stadiums, curiosities related to the Talamian football world and much more will soon be available to all!


So what are you waiting for?

Are you interested in sports role-playing? Contact Talamia and join the founding members of DSAFF!

President

Oiktirmon-Nicao Paidarion
(2021−present)

The Democratic Socialist Assembly Football Federation (DSAFF) is a major administrative and governing body of association football in Delusia. It is headquartered in Clinepalas, Talamia and counts several techincal departments in all its affiliated nations.

DSAFF was founded in February 2021, representing national football associations around the world, and running nation and club competitions. Its membership now comprises 4 national associations. DSAFF also includes other national federations of countries outside of Delusia, by invitation.

Today, DSAFF outlines a number of objectives in the organizational Statues, including growing football trans-regionally, providing efforts to ensure football is accessible to everyone, and advocating for integrity and fair play.


History

The nations of Delusia have always come together to organize sporting events and competitions. The DSA Winter and Summer Olympics are almost a fixture on the planet. The interest in football, however, was never much.

Located on the continent of Romaxia, the nation known as Talamia, on the other hand, has a great history and culture founded on football. Internally, Talamia was the only nation to have its own football federation on Delusia: the TSS (Talamia Sports' Summaka), governing a national football team and a Talamia's own domestic league: the Alfa League. The strong cultural football tradition of Talamia pushed Talamian sports' minister Antheo Karabos to propose the formation of a body to govern football at an international level.

On February 2021, the DSAFF was born, as can be read in the official statute of the federation:

"[...] with the aim of organizing football tournaments for clubs and national teams, of spreading the interest in association football, of ensuring football is accessible to everyone, and of advocating for integrity and fair play."

Karabos appointed Oiktirmon-Nicao Paidarion president of the newly-born federation. Paidarion had already been president and founder of the Talamian club Afestosja and he is known for his revolutionary approach to sports organization in general.

The very first goal of the federation was to organize a tournament for national teams for the summer of 2021, the Comrades Cup, and one for the club teams, the DSA Champions League, to be started in the 2021/2022 or 2022/2023 season, depending on the response of the nations within Delusia.

The federation's headquarters were located in Talamia's capital, Clinepalas, along Orisma odo, the historic street entirely dedicated to football that leads to the national stadium: the EpopSfaira Stadium, home of the Ptoco and SF Lampride clubs.

In April 2021, the federation decided to expand its borders and also include other nations by invitation, outside the planet Delusia.


Image

The task of designing DSAFF's first logo was entrusted to the Talamian designer Ule Nkanki, author of the Alfa League and TSS logos.

Nkanki opted for a simple rose, to take up the flag of the Democratic Socialist Assembly, within which he decided to embed a soccer ball. The color red, synonymous with socialism, predominates within the logo. On the left of the squad, almost to give it life, the initials of the federation: DSAFF. A line between the letters separates the acronyms "DSA", underlining them, and "FF", passing through them.


Structure

In total, DASFF recognizes 4 national associations and their associated national teams and football federations as its members. As of April 16 2021, the only football federation outside Delusia is the Blueea Football Federation.

DSAFF has its own ranking system, created to ensure fairer competitions. The DSAFF Rankings are updated after the end of each tournament. They are based on club and national team's performances in competitions, qualifiers, and friendly matches. Teams are ranked based on their game results with the most successful teams being ranked highest.

Laws and governance
DSAFF is headquartered in Clinepalas and it is an association established under the law of Talamia.

DSAFF's supreme body is the DSAFF Congress, an assembly made up of representatives from each affiliated member association. Each national football association has one vote, regardless of its size or footballing strength.

Congress makes decisions relating to DSAFF's governing statutes and their method of implementation and application. Only the DSAFF Congress can pass changes to the statutes. The Congress approves the annual report, decides on the acceptance of new national associations, elects the President of DSAFF and it is also the body that decides which country will host the NSLeft Association Football Federation. In order to host a tournament edition, you must submit your application. Each application is put to vote and all member associations have equal weight in the decision.

This is a list of the nations who have an official football federation under the aegis of DSAFF and therefore recognized as official DSAFF members.

After a lot of consideration, I have come to the decision that Forest cannot afford to neglect its history. Be it in the form of ancient history, told through the venerable history dispatch, to more recent in the form of the transparency reports.

It also cannot afford to leave old versions of stuff lying around, which unfortunately is the case on the front page. Pinned dispatches with out of date information damages the image of Forest as a vibrant, active region, and is an unwelcome sign of a founderless region sliding into irrelevance.

As such, I will request Ruinenlust to appoint Mozworld, with immediate effect, as Forest Memory, with powers over Communications and Appearances.

Welcome aboard!

Also, I'll do a spooky scary skeleton version of this post if the people demand it.

So, I've just spoken to a patient who wanted to discuss feelings of isolation, plus a testicular ache. It was a telephone appointment via his mobile. However he is now in London so he probably needs a new GP local to him.

So naturally the booking notes by the receptionist read "testicles mobile in london feeling lost".
