  1. There's a family in the city of Acquafondo that the police have suspected for a while to be smuggling drugs, weapons, and other contraband to other syndicate groups for their own personal gain. They cover their tracks well, however, and haven't been convicted of anything yet.
  2. I guess it can be the...start of an answer? Maybe more exposition along the way to fill space. You can do whatever idea you deem fit, but the attack is still going to happen either way. Do whatever!
  3. I'll be boasting about posting, or maybe just ghosting.
  4. The mountains to the north of Alenveil are referred to as The Kendovstrunmahhe (Jesus, that's a mouthful. This can be shortened however you see fit). Their name is the only thing left of Kogaan culture that has stood the test of time and avoided Limonaian conquest, but their true meaning and translation are unknown. (OOC: Kendovstrunmahhe is "Soldier Mountains.") The largest mountain that looks like an ax is called Hahkunstrunmah. Hahkunstrunmah is divided by the Ysgram Valley into two pieces. The southern portion is called Vurstrunmah and the northern portion is the Tuzstrunmah. (OOC: Hahkunstrunmah is "Axe Mountain," Vurstrunmah is "Valor Massif," and Tuzstrunmah is "Blade Massif.") The circular-shaped mountain south of the curve of Tuzstrunmah is known as Key Spaan, and the cylindrical mountain to the southwest of Key Spaan is called Key Zahkrii. (OOC: Key Spaan is "Mount Shield," and Key Zahkrii is "Mount Sword.")
  5. Okay. An even larger idea has sprung into my head like Alenian Wheat. So, it's pretty obvious that Roksek is the leader of the terrorist group that's going to lead the attack on the museum. BUT, (and this is in a future sense,) what if Roksek denies having anything to do with the attack, and keeps trying to have the KPU in good faith (Maybe blaming another terrorist group, like the AA of PyeMcGowan). All of this is to weave together a plan for one of Roksek's motives: revenge. I'm not sure how this is going to work yet, but what if Roksek, or a puppet of Roksek, cuts a deal with Rihan to sell them the Aresi Stone and gain funding...for a presidential campaign. With Matteo gaining popularity and archaeology rising along with him, could it be possible for Roksek (or his puppet) to gain a political foothold, start a campaign, and win by promising to fund archaeology? (Obviously, he's just trying to rise to power so he can get revenge on a Spaghetti Boi destroying some natives' culture.) This seems unrealistic because third parties rarely win in politics, but tell me what you all think!
  6. Matteo assumed that this was perfectly natural. People were curious about his finding, and this stone was a monumental achievement. "Well," he began, "we believe that it has a link to the Kogaan, preferably why @Limonaians decided to wage war. It was written in around 1540, in both the Limone dialect and in Kogaanzul, their native language." He paused, "now, I'm hoping that, by cross-referencing artifacts with the help of all of you, and translation of the dialect with the help of Pietro, we can find out what happened to the Kogaan in the first place!" He turned his head to face the @Rihanssu Ambassador, "I would never think that you would actually be interested in archaeology like this, being a man of the present and not the past," he leaned closer to Nemus, "why do you want to know?" A fist slammed down on a table in the offices of the KPU. "Damn you, Matteo! You're just paving the way for the Limonaians to take our land again!" Roksek, head of the Kogaan Preservation Union, growled in annoyance at the actions of the "local legend" Matteo Arlotta. Fueled by his spite for Limionaia and the destruction of the heritage that he would've lived in, and maybe a bit of nationalism, he found this organization to uncover what was, and what used to be. A relatively young organization, the KPU has successfully contributed to the donating of ancient artifacts and has only recently begun working with Matteo Arlotta. Roksek, beginning to think of him as a traitor to the cause, has begun using his money for other reasons -- reasons that no nation would ever think an organization about archaeology would want to do. "I suppose," he began, talking to himself and staring down at the newspaper he was interviewed in. He didn't want to do this at all, but he also felt like he was entitled to. This was his heritage, his life. He stepped out into the cafeteria of the Kogaan Preservation Union's headquarters, based in Ascorese. He pointed at three people, two men, and a woman, punctuating his pointing with a "you." Then he motioned behind him with his thumb, "come with me." They got up and followed his lead, prepared for whatever Roksek has planned for them. They would do anything for this cause. Everyone in the KPU felt just how Roksek did. They weren't some Limonaian clay doll, made by some explorer 500 years ago to fit the image they wanted. The KPU believed they were true Alenians, and they would do anything to prove that this was a fact.
  7. Hello, there! I know from experience and new-nation wide-eyed curiosity that this place is a wonderfully accepting place. I'm excited to see what you have to offer!
  8. 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 to the @Rihanssu wondering his own opinion on the matter. Matteo turned, hearing the grumpy voice of the museum secretary, and approached Pietro, the @Limonaia n scientist, "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, "um, 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."
  9. 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 the 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 are 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 applause, King La Pollo steps off the stage.
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
