  1. Elisa nodded and led Rovetti to the back room after the strange occurrence with Mr. Tenki. "I think these are the last of those in this odd meeting. Enjoy your time, I need a damn coffee," Elisa groaned and stepped out of the room. "Well, I'm glad you asked. It was found in Aresi, where I think I'm going to name it off of. The Aresi Stone...how does that sound?" he questioned, wondering his own opinion on the matter. Matteo turned, hearing the grumpy voice of the museum secretary, and approached Pietro, "hey! Pi..." he paused, trying to remember the name again, "Pietro! Welcome! I'm so glad to have you here, this Limone dialect is something that I'm not sure if I can read. It makes some sense, but it's choppy. With you on our side and with the help of cross-referencing of the Limonaian Merchant Texts, we're sure to find out these primitive people's identity!" He patted Pietro on the shoulder and then turned to face his friend from the @Sunset Sea Islands. His eyes widening, and a smile growing on his face. "Houen!" he shouted, running over and pulling him into a hug, patting him on the back! "Ah, dear friend!" he looked around Houen, "urm, you said you'd be bringing Trai." He placed his hands on his hips, almost scoldingly, but still trying to tease him at the same time, "did you forget her at the airport while you were spacing out?" "Seriously, though, where is she? Not that you're any worse, but I was hoping to have her alongside this mission too. You brought up a lot of good things about her," he chuckled of nervousness, "sorry. I have a lot on my mind, this meeting hasn't gone very according to plan," Matteo lowered his voice, "I didn't expect the Ambassador to be here, and I'm a little irritated about the situation." His voice returned to a normal pitch, "still, I'm thrilled you're here."
  2. Once again, the SBC introduction sequence plays as it opens up to the scene of an anchorwoman. The woman was wearing a dark red, business-formal suit, reading off of the teleprompter. "Good evening, thank you for tuning in. I'm Emilia Sada," the woman was incredibly gloomy in her expression as she began. "As many of you are already aware, a harsh terrorist attack on multiple @PyeMcGowan cities have left hundreds of citizens dead. In a few minutes, King Damocle La Pollo will be delivering a speech to the...citizens of PyeMcGowan. No one knows who the culprit is, or what their intentions are, things are still incredibly chaotic. The speech will be beginning, I believe, now. We will broadcast after commercial break, thank you for watching. The final commercial ends, and it opens up on a bronze-skied Virunum Palace with the seal of the king, a dark blue circle with a crescent moon and harp resting in the middle, on a podium. A medium-sized man steps out on to the podium and has the crowd play the national anthem as King Damocle La Pollo steps on to the stage. The anthem fades out, and he speaks. "Good evening, everyone. As you know, we stand here today to mourn the attacks on PyeMcGowan yesterday and today. I wanted to make a few comments on it, and offer my condolences. Once again we've seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians. This is an attack not just on Charleston, or Dawson. It's an attack not just on the people of PyeMcGowan, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share. We stand ready to provide whatever assistance the PyeMcGowian government may need, for they have stood next to us time and time again multiple times throughout our history. They were with us when we were freed from @Limonaian colonization, and stood with us against their tyranny. We will stand together against this threat of terrorism for as long as it looms in our borders. Those who think that they can terrorize the PyeMcGowians and the values they stand for our wrong, because they share them with us, and we will fight to the ends of the Eurth for it to stay that way. We don’t yet know all the details of what has happened. We have been in contact with PyeMcGowian officials to communicate our deepest condolences to the families of those who have been killed, to offer our prayers and thoughts to those who have been wounded. We have offered our full support to them. The situation is still unfolding. I’ve chosen not to call King George or Prime Minister Willowston at this time, because my expectation is that they are very busy at the moment. But I am confident that I'll be in direct communications with them in the next few days, and we’ll be coordinating in any ways that they think are helpful in the investigation of what’s happened. I’m sure that in the days ahead we’ll learn more about exactly what happened, and my teams will make sure that we are in communication with the press to provide you accurate information. I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this. It appears that there may still be live activity and dangers that are taking place as we speak. And so until we know from PyeMcGowian officials that the situation is under control, and we have for more information about it, I don’t want to speculate." "Thank you very much," and with an applause, King La Pollo steps off the stage.
  3. KING DAMOCLE LA POLLO DELIVERS WONDERFUL RESPONSE TO THE DAWSON ATTACKS After the sudden terrorist attacks on the people of @PyeMcGowan today and yesterday on the King Wendover Statue, Queen Wilhelmina Street Metro Station, and many other landmarks, His Royal Highness delivered a response to the attacks later this morning at the Virunum Palace, many press accounts being taken by 3rd party news agencies and our own Sarbo Broadcasting Channel. The speech has been documented on the SBC channel and will be replayed for those who can't watch it. We give our major condolences to the people of PyeMcGowan and their families. This is a truly tragic day, but hope will be found. "Once again we've seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians. This is an attack not just on Charleston, or Dawson. It's an attack not just on the people of PyeMcGowan, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share." - King Damocle La Pollo
  4. I wanted to bring this up to the OOC chat before engaging this to find out when it would take place. If you all remember the Kogaan Preservation Union (KPU), they are incredibly opposed to Limonaia's presence in the meeting. My proposal is that the KPU launches a terrorist attack against the museum, warning Matteo and trying to kill Pietro. Whether it kills him or not is up to interpretation. How does this sound?
  5. He was immediately greeted by the bored, sour, and indifferent museum secretary. She looked up from her computer and swiveled his desk over to him. "May I help you?" she asked, ready to take whatever request the man had. Meanwhile, Matteo saw the Rihannsu ambassador enter. Still irritated at his sudden intrusion, he feigned gratitude surprisingly well. "Ah! Good, you're here! Welcome, Mr...tr'Rukon, right? I'm so glad to see you! Tell me, what's a hot-shot ambassador doing at an archaeologist meeting? The stone must be making waves if even Rihan is interested," Matteo smiled towards him and waited for the response he had in store.
  6. He smiled at Mr. Halbert and turned his attention to the stone sitting on the display behind him. "It's a beauty, isn't it?" he smiled warmly at the stone as if it was his own child. "I always thought I would be able to accomplish something like this, but I couldn't do it alone. I'm glad that you're here to help. Now, sadly, not all of the archaeologists are here yet. Now, I want to tell you something that the letter did not tell you." Matteo paused for a short moment and mentally punched himself. He never wanted an ambassador to be here, but he can't say no to him either. "There will be a Rihannsu-Alenveil Ambassador visiting us as well as the archaeologists. Now we have the ambassadors and the KPU to deal with." He placed a newspaper, the ANT, on the table for Mr. Halbert to read. "I think they may become an issue in the future. They hold old grudges from 500 years ago that have improved. Now while I can somewhat agree with them that Limonaia is a cause for the need of archaeology, we need them for this. 'Roksek' is being dramatic, Limonaia won't try to do something like that again." Matteo sighed, "they're civilized." He held a piece of paper to the stone and began using a pencil to mark down the Kogaanzul runes onto his piece of paper, having a paper copy with him to study, even when he isn't with the stone itself. He placed it on a table and looked over at the paper, then to the stone.
  7. If I remember correctly, the last time we did this he said that he wasn't going to come back, but that might have changed, and I do agree with @Variota in the sense that this will require some higher moderation. I'll make sure to add various dock cities and...well, maybe that's it because I don't really have that much room to place. In the bottom blue area, I'll open a dock town. "Biramo" will be its name, after this is completed.
  8. The Proven Existence of Parallel Universes Or Travels in The World of “Earth” Kristen Breeland Foreword This is not science fiction, nor is this a philosophical book about the possibilities of parallel universes, nor is this a campaign for the world-renowned game of Dungeons, Dungeons, and More Dungeons. It is personal documentation that I have decided to write to tell the world of my experiences through a parallel universe similar to that of our own, almost unnaturally so. It is a common fact that “Eurth, Earth, and Avaris” is what our world is known as. This parallel world has come under a conglomerate term of “Earth.” There are a few other key differences, such as politics, geography, and technology, that I will be sharing with you know. Chapter 1 There is little I can do to explain or describe what I felt that night. On the night of October 12, 2018, I had continued to watch the main event of Prymont’s world-renowned racing week SpeedWeek. I got up to prepare a snack for myself when I felt something that felt like headrush. Dark spots clouded my vision and I felt dizzy and light-headed like one normally does, stumbling about my living room and trying to regain a sense of feeling. The dizziness didn’t stop, however. I started to feel like I was being pushed against my will. Light escaped my vision and then the dizziness stopped. There was nothing, and then there was light. Chapter 2 At first, I thought that I’d just gotten so dizzy that I blacked out outside and then woken up out of nowhere. I’d woken up in a bustling city that resembled Kipan, their symbols are very similar to one another but the layout of the city somewhat different than it. Although, I saw a small globe on a broadcasting news program and saw that the world was completely different. I went to tap someone on the shoulder and they didn’t notice me. They couldn’t see me at all. This force made me intangible to others like I was just an observer of this new world. I felt no need for food or drink, and I stayed in this world for months. I’d traveled around the world and I saw so many different cultures that were similar to my own. I found a place that seemed like Alenveil or Limonaia, a place that was structured similarly to Derthalen, a land structured like Dniester, a larger area with a flag similar to Prymont, and many more. All these nations founded under so many different names and all of them were so different from one another. Even history was different, but the same. In the 1st Century into the 4th century, a continent that’s known as “Europe” was dominated by the Roman Empire, similar to our own Aroman Empire. Nations and empires rose and fell all across this new land, but one thing that was stagnant within them was the technology that they utilized, even if they were under different names. Chapter 3 Certain social media that we have access to in our own world is structured very similarly to our own. Tinder, a dating platform used for finding people you could be attracted to. Flickr, an image hosting service. Twitter, a social media platform that allows you to group certain things in different categories using the hashtag, similar to Wittier. Their mascots are even the same. Both Twitter and Wittier hold a bird as their mascot and are structured similarly. Businesses are different as well, like video game corporations Playstation, Nintendo, and XBOX, and the search engine Woohoo, Elgoog, and Bonk. In this world, they are replaced with Yahoo, Google, and Bing. The kPhone here is different as well, there is a device known as the iPhone. There is also a car delivery service similar to our own Unter that goes by the name Uber. The country of Japan, similar to Kipan in a lot of ways, is actually the birthplace of a similar form of ‘Stanime that Earth calls anime. I don’t understand the concept behind it, but I can understand why people would create a certain subgenre of anime (Hentai). These technologies serve the exact same purpose as their cousins on Eurth and it’s unnatural how similar these worlds can be, even as deep as their diplomacy. Chapter 4 Diplomacy on Earth is in an unusual patch, simply because of how chaotic it is. One can never truly pinpoint where the world’s diplomacy will turn, an example being the chaotic leader of the United States of America. Things have gotten so out of hand that the nation wishes to build a wall between its southern neighbor. Communism isn’t as high as it is in Eurth in the present-day, and I believe that was mostly in part of the United Nations stamping out every trace of communism they could get their hands on. Some nations that were labeled as communist have now taken a more economic and capitalist turn, such as the nations of Vietnam and the People’s Republic of China. Other nations have labeled themselves as a communist state, but they’ve adopted a completely different ideology, such as the Democratic Republic of Korea, which has actually been turned into an authoritarian regime. Diplomacy is truly chaotic and unusual, and the world seems like it could erupt into global, nuclear war at any minute. At least they don’t have the threat of zombie attacks every October. Conclusion After living in this new Earth for months and examining all that I could about technologies, geography, and world affairs, I began to feel the dizzying feeling stated in the first chapter about my travels to this new realm. These travels are clearly accidental, simply because of the sheer randomness of the event, but they have helped me to see a new light, that we are not the only ones. There are more alternate universes, thousands even. The writing of this book has helped me to realize that yes, parallel universes and those who inhabit them are in fact real. If we could find a way to harness this traveling power, we could no doubt breach this dimensional barrier and see what awaits us on the other side. Nightwalk Publishing, 2019, Kristian Breeland.

  9. Once again, the SBC introduction sequence plays as it opens up to the scene of the two normal reporters. Donning a black 3-piece-suit, the man sat with a small stack of about 3 papers in his hands, and the woman, fitted with a business formal outfit, sat with her hands folded against the table. "Good afternoon, and thank you for tuning in. I'm Emilia Sada." "And I'm Marco Messore." Marco began to read off the scrolling teleprompter, reading off the report that had been written for him and his coworker. "Today, a breach of PyeMcGowan national security has been discovered. A multitude of highly confidential information has been stolen, including information about @Theodoria and the @PyeMcGowanian navy, and the majesty is somewhat worried for the state of the Auraid bay." Mrs. Sada jumped into the conversation with her own input, changing the subject and following the command of the teleprompter. "In other news, Matteo Arlotta, the nationally acclaimed archaeologist, is reported to be heading in for a meeting about the recently discovered Aresi Stone. He will be heading to the Alenian Museum of National History in Sarbo incredibly soon and will be accomplishing whatever he needs, but he won't be doing it alone." "Reports have stated that he's also invited multiple archaeologists from different nations, including his old childhood friend and companion Tenki Houen from the @Sunset Sea Islands, as well as those from PyeMcGowan and even an ambassador from the @Rihan Republic. We weren't able to get ahold of Matteo Arlotta to hear his thoughts on the matter."
  10. Matteo heard a ping on his computer and opened his email application. His eyes flicked across the screen and read through his usual mail. Junk, advertisements, occasional fan-mail from those kids that really like dinosaurs and are thinking he's a paleontologist, and one name in particular in his inbox that seemed oddly familiar. A name that seemed to come from Sunset Sea Island roots, a name from a time long gone. Matteo thought out loud in shock and surprise, "Houen?" He could feel joy fill his heart as his old friend had finally caught up with him, and had caught him in such a great position. With the gentle clicking of his keys and mouse, he sent a reply to everyone who had responded to his email. After sending it, he climbed into his car, wiped off the dashboard of dust, and drove off from his home to Sarbo to wait at the museum for the directors, specialists, and his invited companions. His eyes shimmered with hope and excitement, ready to decipher anything he could to finally unearth what had been hidden from Alenveil for so long... ALENIAN MUSEUM OF NATIONAL HISTORY STRADA DELLA VITTORIA 1534 00184 SARBO CR ALENVEIL Matteo's small car rode up to the front of the museum, and he stepped out of it and marveled at the Grecian architecture that so many had adapted to use in their building. The Corinthian-styled pillars resting as support of the pediment with Aroman writing carved into it: "SICVT FVIT ANTE BELLVM" "As it was before the war," Arlotta muttered to himself. He stepped into the museum, echoing footsteps sounding against the marble-tiled floor, walking up to the front desk and resting his hands on the table. The receptionist at her computer looked up at Matteo with piercing eyes, her thin glasses sliding down her nose. Her chestnut hair tied into a messy bun shimmered in the evening sun. She slid her chair over slightly to be directly in front of her. "Yes?" she asked, seeming to be uninterested in this entire situation. Matteo read the bronze-painted nametag on her shirt, "Elisa Pizzini." He looked back up at her, "the director has asked to see me. Um, the name should be under Arlotta." Matteo stepped backward and waited patiently for her to check. The woman leaned back in her chair and then slid to her computer, resting her fingers on the keyboard. "You said your name was Arlotta?" "Yes, Arlotta." Matteo wrung his hands, beginning to grow impatient with her. "Ah, here we go...the meeting says that it will contain you, someone from the Sunset Sea Islands, PyeMcGowan, and...the Rihan-Alenveil Ambassador." "Wait, an ambassador is coming to this meeting? I wasn't told this, I never even got a mail confirmation." Matteo's face shifted even more irritated at the things that weren't going exactly right. Ambassadors aren't archaeologists, they are not the same thing! The woman gave a gentle shrug, "that's what it says here. Sorry," she said in an incredibly passive-aggressive way. Matteo sat down in the room where the stone was supposed to be. He examined the stone, running his fingers around the carvings in the rock. He was waiting for the sounds of doors opening, hoping that he may recognize those who entered. He waited patiently for the entering of PyeMcGowan's entrant and his friend Houen, or maybe he was there on time and they were late? His mind was spinning, he couldn't figure out how to act and where and what was even going on. This plan had somewhat fallen apart. He brushed off his suit and straightened his tie. Waiting, and watching the clock on the wall tick by.
  11. @Rihan It's best if we find a way to include your character early on...I was thinking at some point your character could contact someone after this first meeting with the director of the museum? I don't know, this idea was half-baked...ideas from anyone else? Edit: Wait, I just saw your character's idea with sending someone from the Rihannsu embassy. I'm including him as I write.
  12. @Rihan Wonderful! Not only do we have the KPU, but we also have your aristocratic character! Do it, my friend!
  13. I do think that this is a really good way to get people involved and help revive this server to a point. Of course, there are a few ways that this could go wrong. As @Variota mentioned, these NPCs should be kept only in the mods hands and not be made to the point where everyone is planning on creating NPC nations or taking control of dead nations. Maybe those who are balanced and can be trusted could be used as NPC nations as well, but I can assume that this would be very rare and could pave the roads for exploitation. I don't think I should be trusted with this input because I'm not good at moderation, but it's good enough to do something. All in all, this is a good idea to bring this server to live in any way we can.
  14. This isn't necessarily an OOC chat, it's more of a way for me to ask what Eurth has that RL Earth does not. For those who don't know, this is regarding the alternate universe novel that I brought up in Discord about a month ago. An artist has been whisked away into the alternate and fictional universe of Earth that holds various similarities and also, hopefully, differences with Eurth. I've already written about and mentioned the map layout of Eurth and Earth, the similarities between different social media platforms, like Twitter and Wittier, but there are more things that I could use to compare them. Any ideas?
  15. INDIANA ARLOTTA AND THE ARESI STONE Matteo Arlotta is at it again, and this time he's enlisting help! Enlisting the help of @PyeMcGowan, @Limonaia, and even the @Sunset Sea Islands to help decode the Aresi Stone. It is currently being sent to the Alenian Museum of National History in Sarbo to be examined by Arlotta, his team of archaeologists, and the other nations invited to the museum. "Uncovering something this big has been my dream since I've been a child. Never once did I ever think I would accomplish something like this!" says Arlotta, examining a slab with the Alenian primitive language inscribed all over it. Not only are Arlotta and the archaeology community excited, but a new group of people that have been popping up all over Alenveil have been excited about it too, and are ecstatic about what Mr. Arlotta plans for the stone. Under the name "The Kogaan Preservation Union," they preserve the culture of the ancient societies that once lived in Alenveil and have ensured that multiple archaeologist companies keep the artifacts in museums. A side-effect of this preservation is, however, that they harbor a strong hatred from Limonaia, the ones who are credited for "tainting the culture itself and destroying what we lived for," and they despise the action of inviting Limonaia to this council. "This is, quite simply, an invitation to do what they've done in the past. Limonaia will infiltrate our society, act nice and passive, open trade opportunities, and then take us over once again. They still refuse to apologize for what they've done to us and our culture. It's disgusting to think that this country has diplomacy in Limonaia after what they did to us," shouts the group leader who insists that we call him "Roksek." "I respect his [Matteo Arlotta's] decision, but I don't think that Limonaia should even be here," Roksek continues. "Once they finish their tests on the stone, the Limonaian archaeologists should get out and then Arlotta can donate the Aresi Stone to the museum where it belongs." Matteo Arlotta does seem to be going through with the action of including Limonaia in this, which will likely cause tensions to grow within the KPU and Arlotta Archaeology. The archaeology community, however, looks to the future with hope as this chapter in our history is finally being unearthed.
