  1. Climate Gang Three: 4 Faster 4 Furiouser Last post, 17th of June. Yikes. Welp, time to get this show on the road. Since the previous post, the main push within the group is to get a complex global Eurth climate map draft completed. And im happy to say, we finally have one! The new climate bands and biomes were built from the ground up using both the warmer and cooler climate maps as references along with an ocean current map, along with a basic atmospheric pressure map. Borders for nations were also added to make discerning your nation's climate clearer. In total, this new draft has

  2. Vyktoria Parker was an older woman, born in the decades after the Great Alharun War and Agglomeration; she watched as the country she grew up in spiral until she could no longer recognize it. It was almost a relief when she was asked to become the ambassador to Tagmatium. It was sad, but she almost felt more at home in her office at the Galahindan embassy than her modest apartment in Cascadia. At least her office wasn't constantly bombarded by the lights and sound that characterized Cascadia. Working with Tagmatium and its representatives wasn't too terrible either. They were nice enough and s

  3. Leader of Galahindeia insults Arhomaneia A song and music video was released by the Galahindiki musician, Aliyah Arotica, who is known for the crude content of her music and as a result is one of the foreign artists most often banned by the Logothesion ton Deeseon, the Ministry for Information. Her music is considered to be too vulgar and not fit for Arhomaioi to listen to by the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion, and therefore prevented from both being bought in Arhomaneia or played by radio or television stations based in our nation. Whether this manner of censorship is actually effective,

The room was empty, save for his chief aide, who hovered in the corner of the office. Late summer rain was beating against the window and a low rumble of thunder could occasionally be heard, booming out across the Tagmatine capital. The office was in a much more modern and subdued style than the suite set aside within the Basilikon Synkrotima Palation, the Imperial Palace Complex, for the Megas Logothetes ton Barb

Godless Nation mocks God's own Nation Leader of Galahindeia appears in video attacking religion and culture In a move that was considered surprising, the head of state of Galahindeia, Yiu Amistacia, appeared in a music video that mocked not only our ancient and glorious nation, but our faith as well. At the moment, it appears that the barbaros is refusing to even acknowledge that what they have done is an insult to our nation and our people, but that it was an unprovoked attack as well. So far, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion has responded by asking for an explanation for the Proed

The MYNE HQ was one of the newer buildings in the urban core, but what it lacked in history, it made up for in sheer attention-stealing.
