The Iceberg Lounge Regional Message Board
The latest Force Flyer is out!
A New Constitution has been announced, Sword BJ has been given Dot Citizenship, three Cabinet members have resigned, the population decline has finally ended and growth has come back, Salibaic has been elected Prime Minister of Heart, and efforts are being made to grow RGBN's population.
Question Asked: Why did you resign?
Ingloniania: Well I resigned because I was getting really stressed because of the things I was expected of because I had a lot of other things that I had to do daily and I got really busy with other things such as friends, school, projects, etc.
Sword BJ: The real reason is I have no will to play NS anymore and the other reason is RL issues that prevented me from doing my tasks.
Lashnakia: As real life commitments and problems build up, I no longer feel able to serve Force to the best of my ability.
The latest Force Flyer is out!
The Heart Government has been dismissed, elections for the House of Representatives have been held, elections for the Court have been held, and more Ministers have been dismissed and replaced.
Western Chosetus: 7-0
Great Latinoamerica: 6-1
For Sword BJ: 7
Against Sword BJ: 0
Western Chosetus: 6
"I think that the people of Force should be able to have more of a say in Democratic elections. This is because the citizens who aren't on the Force Chat on The Force Regional Forum are unable to vote. So I think that you should put a vote on the Force homepage on NationStates. Make it easier for the citizen to vote, and whats more, a telegram can be sent to everyone in Force to notify them about an election. This is just a thought to make Force a better place to be."
"Less than a week ago the Heart government voted to let Force intervene with the government to help Heart recover from the last few months of emigration. Libertatis Regalis, the prime minister of Force, also deemed that a rewrite of the constitution was necessary and that their goal was to get 75 residents within the region.
Heart has had a rocky relationship with recruitment in the past anyway, primarily because any recruitment it has ad, it lost because Force was the region in charge. Many residents left because this is where the action was at. Libertatis will not be able to reach that lofty goal of 75 members and be able to keep it for long.
Kicking out the government is also an unnecessary action. How does Heart have any leadership in the future if Force overtakes the region without retraining or future assistance? The answer is that they can’t. All of the previous government officials are left in the dark and have no way of learning how to run a region, therefore leaving the region to fail in the future.
It seemed the only way to keep recruitment up in the region was to draw attention to it. My first governmental job was under the controversial Bennisia as the Minister of Communications (MoCom). He at least brought the desired attention to the region that it needed to get people to stay, even proposing regional mergers to keep the community strong."
Hi, with over 250 embassies, the process I have for delivering news has become too inefficient. I feel bad for doing this, but I'm going to streamline by closing our embassies. If you'd rather keep the embassy open, please let me know on The NewsStand RMB.
If you want to keep up with the news, you can always add The NewsStand to your dossier, and catch up whenever suits.
Thanks for having had the embassy with us. It has genuinely meant a lot to have had your support for so long.
Dionysus enters the bar, happily muttering thanks to Satan for giving him a job, running a bar of all things. He is followed by a group of wine spirits. They begin to clean up the bar, they replace the doors and windows, they clean the water, they bring in more liquor, they grow some vines on the walls and much more. When they are done, they open the bar.
I'll have a Brandy Alexander.
Let's talk about entertainment. I have an Indie band and represent a Swing band. Any interest?
Hello? Where's my drink?
Lady Vera walks in
"Huh, a bar in Hell?" She wonders aloud.
She sees no one around. Then proceeds to the bar's counter. The blue LED lighting theme makes her skin glow.
She reaches for a bottle with an unidentifiable label. And begins to chug deeply. Some of the bottle's bitter fluid leaks out from the large gash upon her neck.
"I'll have to fix that sometime."
She can see the oozing black fluid mingled with the bottle's contents in the mirrored wall behind the bar. Her new demonic visage will still have to get some getting used to.
Nuke Day is here once again and I reach out to you today to join the Horsemen of the Apocalypse! We won last year and plan to do it again!
Count down is here: page=news/2020/09/22/index.html
“We impose order on the chaos of faction evolution. You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.”
- The Stalker when asked the purpose of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
The non-aggression pact, the shameless megafaction, the backroom agreement, these are the tools of cowards and weaklings. True glory rests in the hands of those who succeed on their own merits. Strength is the only currency accepted by The Atom, and only the strong will prosper on N-Day. The Horsemen of the Apocalypse are the greatest faction in N-Day history, that is a simple fact, the highest score ever, the highest faction population ever, the most nukes ever, the most shields ever, the only faction to ever finish at #1 with no radiation, our accolades are limitless, our abilities are peerless. You all know who we are, and you know what we're about. If you wish to free yourself from the shackles placed upon you by bickering cowards and sycophants then seek us out. The ability to choose what is destroyed, when, and in what manner is the exclusive prerogative of the powerful, following the weak will only lead to you being counted among the vanquished.
RP aside, we dominated virtually unchallenged last time, and we're going to win again this time even if it requires us to actually try a little. If you want to be in the #1 faction then join us, accept no substitutes. As [v] herself said, 549 out of 574 Factions finished with a negative score, of the 25 positive scores one was us and the other 24 stayed positive solely because we couldn't be bothered to wreck them.
If you want to flex on all the other nerds that play this game join our Discord now and join our faction once the event starts.
And I heard as it were the noise of thunder, One of the four beasts saying come and see and I saw, and behold...
The Count Down: page=news
It's time for round five my friends, The Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride once again.
For those not around last time and for those of us in need of a refresher please read over the NS News dispatch here; page=dispatch/id=874170
1. Join faction to start building production
2. Spend Production on missiles or shields
3. Use missile to strike foes for points, use shields to stop incoming missiles
4. Read ^ dispatch, V read the Plan.
5. Be on the Discord! >>> HERE! <<<
This year we show no mercy. Join us and you will be free to attack whomever you wish, we have only targets and make no non-aggression pacts.
Join us on the discord for organization hits, or pick your own targets on your own.
Stick to your specialty, if you're military build nukes, if you're strategic build shields. If you're economic do whatever you please. Whatever your specialization be ready to fight at the start, who knows how many losers from last year will try and fail to get revenge on us early.
Altmoras is the Lord of War, leader of the Horsemen, follow his orders.
Like last time we work from the shadows again. We don't start fights or hit randomly, we won't draw blood, we will slaughter them all at once. We will focus on small or inactive groups. We will avoid taking strikes and create truces.
Best way to avoid becoming a repeated target will be to keep our defense strong, if they can't land a strike on us, and we don't attack them, they will move on. While we'll focus on earning points.
I wanna encourage folks to have a 40% offense, 60% defense slant on production. Particularly at the start of the game and while people are more active. At the start we will see a lot of attacks coming in from everywhere, so have your defenses ready. Remember it is better to stop the first attack to discourage future attacks, strikes only get easier later on.
All of this will be organized through our discord.
Altmoras is the Lord of War, leader of the Horsemen, follow his orders.
How many nations to use?
Short answer, as many as you can manage, and in relationship to the time you plan to put in.
Everyone should use at least one nation, if you plan to put in the time and effort use a few more. Remember you build resource/"production" only when the nation is in the Faction. Allowing you to buy shields and missiles, more nations means more you can build up, have one nation just for defense, one for missiles, etc.
However more nations also means more targets for our foes to target! So you gotta pull the weight of the nations you use. Lots of inactive targets is bad, what we want is the right amount of active folks making best use of the max production they can handle.
Does this affect my nations stats??
No! There are no long term repercussions.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
And I looked and behold, a pale horse
And his name that sat on him was Death
And Hell followed with him.
