    I think that's a wonderful idea and I am glad to see that you went ahead with the river delta options.

    HA. Not as much briefed as in me spending a considerable amount of time going through the various areas of the forum and soaking up as much information as possible. Plus, I did read the friendly roleplaying guidelines lol. We'll connect over Discord in short order.

    Organisation of Worldbuilding Forums

    Thank you @Adaptus. I will give this another 48 hours for comments before moving ahead with the reorganisation. This task has been on my list for far too long, and I want to finally cross it off.

    Astriedan's News Agency The ANA jingle plays as the ANA logo fades out to a presentator in front of images of various diplomats and salesmen shaking hands. "-Good morning, in the news today the recent announcements made by His Majesty the Emperor Syra Aïl III concerning the recent deal between @Sunset Sea Islands and @Astriedan to install the high tech surveillance system "Synapse" in our country. This continue His Majesty's work to make our country safer trough surveillance. While some human rights organizations have called the Synapse system an "obvious violation of privacy" and "a useless system", the legislator of the Imperial Internal Security Bureau said he was "very happy about this new system", claiming that it will "not leave a bit of privacy to any potential dangerous person. Crowd movement and movement patterns, medical and criminal databases about every astriedanian, and more, this new system will definitely change astriedanian surveillance. The Emperor did not, however, gave the price at which he bought the Synapse system. In other news, the Imperial Army and the Imperial Guard has announced the deployment of the vehicles bought from @Iverica a few months ago. The price of the transaction was still not declared to the public but the Imperial Army Public Relations Office declared that "a modernization of the equipment was necessary". Finally, the Noble Houses Eennso and Atria have announced that great change was to come. We still don't know what this change will be about but our best political analysts are currently trying to make predictions. More infos on all these subjects this evening at 20pm. May your day be as joyous as Symis and glory to Astriedan." The ANA jingle plays again as the ANA logo appears again.

    KAP World Grand Prix Series

    COUNTRY: The Grand Duchy of Limonaia NATIONAL RACING COLOURS: Blue and Gold TEAM NAME: FAC Racing Team TEAM PRINCIPAL: Marco Bucelli NATIONAL CIRCUIT: Menzane Circuit (IRL: Monza Grand Prix Circuit) The Menzane Circuit is the oldest track built solely for Motorsport in Limonaia, and was constructed in 1924 and is 5.793 km long. The modern circuit was built in 1979 but the two older circuits are still there and are sometimes used. The track is located just outside of the city of Celano, Limonaia's third largest city. It features a separate train station. Today it servers as Limonaia's primary track, being used for various Motorsport related events throughout the year including the Limonaian Grand Prix (Gran Premio di Limonaia). OOC: This is probablty a tad too late, but I thought I'd give it a try anyways

    In Amongst the Enemy

    Outside the village of Gongtakh, Kunduz Province. July 15, 0400. "Company, dismount." Captain Huang's men and women clambered off their horses in relative quiet, sliding their Brownies off of their shoulders and unhitching the saddle-strapped Chili Con Carnes, Dollhouses and Kittens. Huang pulled his monocular out of a belt pouch and surveyed the village. Several dozen houses in the main compound, some ten more in outlying fields. If they wanted to stop the insurgents escaping, they'd need good coverage. "Lieutenant Qasim, stay here with the horses, and take Second Platoon's Chili; cover the main block of houses with both machine guns, and get the horses in some shade. Sun's coming up fast, and I don't want them giving us away." He turned to Second Platoon, Lt. Otkur's unit. "I want you to go around the fields and end up west of us, perpendicular to First Platoon's arc of fire. And keep a Dollhouse trained on those outlying houses; more than likely there's a weapon store in one or more of them. Third Platoon, you'll be splitting up. Sergeant Hedayat's squad is going to advance into the ville with the @Valacians; if you find any insurgents in the houses, do your best to get them alive. Sergeant Yeg's squad will secure the entrance to the village, while the Valacian IFV makes a circuit around the east side and winds up blocking off the road leading northwest out through those fields. I'll stay here with First Platoon. Move out." As the company split off into its various duties, Captain Huang turned to the Valacians who'd followed them. "As we say in Fulgistan, gentlemen; 'batter up'. Good luck out there."

    Oh man, someone already briefed this guy. Love the idea! hmu on the discord, I'd like to chat about your nation!

    Y'all have got me convinced -- I'll do the river delta. I'd like to ask for a bit of a chance, though -- I'd like to have up to the Northwards fork in the river, so I can have another city there. Red would be my capital; brown major cities. How does this seem to you guys? I estimate (from google Earth) that I'd have a total area of ~160,000 square kilometers, putting me around the same size as Tunisia or the US State of Georgia.

    BS News Channel

    Good evening soccer fans. I'm Bron Urgundy, and this is BS News. Our main story tonight: Sunset Sea Islands win UENA World Cup The @Sunset Sea Islands triumphed over the @Variotan team after penalties to earn their first World Cup title. We went out on the streets and asked some clueless people what they think about this victory. Here is a random montage. “They’re just lucky that @Fleur de Lys wasn’t good enough to qualify for this World Cup.” Mr Jean Debroux, random tourist guy “I was hoping for everyone to shake hands at the end, and they did, so I feel like I won as well.” Ms Julie Trevor, Andallan treehugger “Oh, goddamnit, I was rooting for both sides!” Mr Peter Sutherland, unemployed loiterer Shocking. Absolutely shocking. Meanwhile, after a prolonged disruption in the natural structure of the universe, order has finally been restored: that guy in the office who was always talking about the World Cup is back to having absolutely nothing to do. But all that rises must one day fall, and now instead of spending his lunch breaks explaining what “in the box” means to a rapt group of coworkers hungry for his esoteric knowledge of “The Beautiful Game,” he has returned to the bowels of corporate anonymity from whence he came. Unto dust he has returned, as one day all of us will.

    Rihan Republic Foreign Relations

    Hel na Bærhiedæsnen From the Office of the Foreign Minister To: The Tagmatine Imperial Court, Tagmatika RE: Reopen Diplomatic Relations The Senate and People of Rihan, as you are no doubt aware, made a proclamation to emerge from a period of isolation. We Rihannsu were once a client people of the Empire until we had our differences that resulted in our self-imposed exile. That was hundreds of years ago and both our peoples have come far since that moment in time. In the spirit of goodwill, the Praetor and I have discussed at length over the last two weeks about the pros and cons of restarting, to some level, diplomatic relations with our former overlords. There are many senators who would wish to have nothing to do with the Tagmatines but the two of us believe that now is the time that we can come to some consensus that will benefit both our peoples. In the interest of preventing conflict here in Rihan, we should undertake these discussions with the utmost secrecy. As I have been appointed to act on behalf of the Praetor and by extension, the Senate and People, I formally wish to convey that I would like these conversations to occur. If similar sentiment is the case in the Empire, then we can move on from there. Best regards, Tevus Pranara Foreign Minister and Senator (For: @Tagmatium Rules)

    Y'all are very convincing. I'll need to give this more thought. I'm happy to take input from anyone that's willing to give it, if anybody else is following this.

    I suppose but even when colonization occurred, many colonial powers didn't have a full readout of the land's potential. Now, if you didn't take that delta region, what would your recourse be? l have taken a look at the other options presented and if you didn't take the prosperous one, I'd recommend looking at the suggestions in Aurelia, but that would mean some climate changes and probably a change in population makeup diversity-wise. I really do think you have the best option on the table.

    If there's resources to extract, we wouldn't have a problem going. Hehe

    I'd say an imperialist nation would seek such a prosperous river delta for exactly the reason you spelled out. They'd want that territory for its own economic interest. There is also an argument one could make that they claimed the land but never fully utilized the land to its full potential, giving you, a now-independent country, the opportunity to seize the moment and put both feet upon the land and turn the former colony into a very rich country in no time, assuming there are no volcanoes underneath or plague of locust that were waiting for the imperialist country to leave.

    I definitely took great interest in the delta, and I continue to agonize over which is the better place to go. Yet I think ultimately, I am averse to the delta because its so good. My nation is a former mining colony; it was indirectly ruled for all but 40 years. But such a prosperous river delta -- it would've drawn settlers, not imperialists. I'd surely have a transplant population -- and, given the natural basis for agriculture, gravel, and sand, probably an economically successful transplant population. My nation doesn't have that same level of economic prosperity. But I'm certainly open to input here. What makes you guys prefer it?

    Greetings from the Rihan Republic

    I will not lie and say that there aren't some very close similarities but what I have done is only used the cultural aspects, and will be absolutely ignoring any space-related content, as well as keeping said people within the confines of modern technology.
