  1. https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Acadia A WIP, partially done, thought it would be nice if I posted my progress thus far
  2. Jacques rushes over to the President's office, folder in hand and plan in mind. He slides through the entrance to Emmanuel Séverin's personal work space. When he walks in, the President looks up at the little man. "Jacques, what have you that is so important that you have to bother me this day.", complains Séverin. "We're having issues with the Diné Republic again, they're demanding the borderlands, and if we don't comply, they're pressuring all the wurld to make us do so.", explains Jacques. "So, what can we do about it.", inquires Séverin. "I was talking with Defense Minister Desroches..." Suddenly, Jacques was interrupted by an outburst about how someone had the ability to nuke any fast food location if they wanted to. He continues, "Like I was saying, Desroches suggested that we fund revolutionary organizations in our neighboring nation, then invade once they are weakened." "Okay, which organizations would we fund then?" "I would suggest the one with the largest foundation, the Worker's Front Movement. We have investigated into worker's conditions in the Diné Republic, and found that they have one of the worst conditions in all of Eurth. Further investigation signals that many members of the WFM work in Arms Factories in the Diné nation." "How do we keep it a secret that we are funding them? How do we supply them?" "I got someone to flow the cash from the government to these organizations, and he's agreed to fly the weapons in disguised as arms part shipments." "Fine, I guess we could give it a shot. Any instability for those nagging hooligans sounds like a deal to me.", Séverin finally agrees.He sighs and looks out the window, but then comes back down to Eurth and looks at Jacques as he hands the President some papers. "These are some documents for the contracting with the guy I mentioned earlier, along with some documents concerning of the aid of the revolutionaries.", says Jacques, and he hands President Séverin a bundle of papers and a pen. The President takes the pen and signs in the necessary areas, then takes a stamp from his desk and stamps his approval onto some others. He hands the papers back over to Jacques. "Thank you, Mr. President." Jacques walks back out the door. The President proceeds to sit at his desk and ponder if he truly made the right the decision.
  3. [RAA] Home | Acadia | Wurld | Politics | Business | Tech | Sports A New Era: AASA's Mun Mission Takes Flight January 5, 2020 by Léana Bonnet EVERYONE'S BEEN WAITING for this moment, that magical day we've all been waiting for, the day the rocket is sitting there on the launch pad and the launch timer hits zero, and the narrating voice says, "we have lift off." The day finally came, and it was practically a holiday, everyone has Sunday off, and almost everybody was sitting in front of their television sets watching to see with their very own eyes history be made. Many made the pilgrimage to Cape Georges and the town of Havre Beach, overwhelmed by the massive tourist influx, to experience the launch themselves. In the seconds before the rocket flew up into the sky, the crowds gathered at Cape Georges began waving towards the rocket, a gesture apparently started by a small child in the large audience of the launch. Whether this is true or not, it is amazing that in this day and age that people can come together like that. It truly shows that Acadia is going into a new era of prosperity, as stated in the President's speech later this afternoon. "This day is one of the greatest days in the history of Acadian flight.", President Emmanuel Séverin had begun, "It goes down in importance next to the first arrival of planes in Acadia, the creation of the Air Force, or even the conception of the very organization who started this, the Administration de Aérienne et Spatiale d'Acadia. But this is not just a day celebrating flight. This day marks a momentous occasion in the history of Acadia, because it shows that when we work together and put our minds collectively to something, we can accomplish big things. It shows that, when we say we will do this, we will do it, because we are a strong people. It stands as an example of what we are capable of. And so, that is why, Acadia is on the path to a new era of prosperity." The best part is, all research will not be lost when the pieces of the rocket come back down to Eurth. The technology used in the rocket is currently being shared with Acadian vehicle manufacturers, allowing citizens access to the kind of stuff before experienced only by astronauts. The research conducted on the rocket will also allow the AASA to eventually develop new, better, recyclable rockets that will be able to take several astronauts up into space. So why don't you go out there and celebrate this wonderful moment in Acadian history! After all, rooting for your country's space program isn't rocket science. This is Léana Bonnet, writing for RAA.

  4. [Pretend that this is a day later, not a month later.] Crowds gather in Cape Georges to watch history flash before them. The town of Havre Beach, housing little over 50,000 citizens, is packed with tourists from around Acadia and even outside of the nation, thousands gathering to see what has been in the making for decades. They walk across the platform to their new accommodations for the coming week. They walk, no, it's more of a waddle, awkwardly in their bulky white suits, in their giant helmets and large boots. But they were nothing to laugh at. They were the four astronauts making history today. These four would do something never before done in Acadia. They would go on a mission to orbit the moon and back. This was the beginning of a new era. Those who were lucky enough to get quite close as to be able to better make out these figures walking across the platform cheered them on as if they were their favorite players on the television in a soccer match. A child steps forward from this crowd. He should be barely noticeable, but the little, possibly four year old steps forward as to be seen by those celebrities walking across the platform. He waved, a simple gesture, but such a sentimental one for the astronauts. It symbolized the newest generation saluting them, and their final goodbye with Eurth until they return. Maybe, one day, that kid, that little kid, will become an astronaut just like them. The four now famous figures of Acadian culture enter the rocket, as Mission Control scrambles to review all systems to see if this baby's ready to take off. "Everything's lookin' good.", says a man looking into a screen displaying some graphs back in Saint-Louis, location of Mission Control. "All good here.", says someone else. Everyone else nods reassuringly or gives some kind of sign of approval, and so it would seem, everything was on track to create a perfect launch. "Well, let's get her into the sky then!" Back in Cape Georges, the rocket, with its systems all set for launch, has gotten down to ten seconds. "T-Minus ten." says the automated voice coming from the speakers surrounding a huge clock just outside the launch pad. Excited whispers sweep across the crowds as the bottom of the rocket begins to light up. "Nine." Guillaume waves out the window to the crowds below, and then says childishly, "This is gonna be fun..." "Eight." "You bet.", says a just as childlike Samuel. "Seven." The child continues to wave back at the rocket crew, smilingly, then turning to his parents so they join him in this final wave before the rocket leaves the Eurth's atmosphere. Clouds of white steam begin to envelop the bottom half of the rocket, with the bottom of the cloud a glowing orange color. "Six." Groups around the happy waving family begin waving as well, as the rocket's engines begin to sound across the cape. "Five." The glowing brightens clearly. "Look at all those people waving us goodbye", says Emy looking down on the crowds. All the astronauts begin to wave. "Four." The whole crowd begins to wave and cheer at the rocket, though the sound is quickly being dwarfed by the engines' roar. "Three." The steam begins to billow the around a hundred yards around the rocket, and the flames of the rocket glow bright. "Two." The sound of the rockets deafen anything within one mile's radius of the launch pad. "One." The rocket propels itself into the air, leaving a trail of smoke behind it as it ascends into the atmosphere. The crowd's cheering overrides the departing engines of the rocket to become the new dominant sound of Cape Georges. Those in bars across the nation, who had turned the television set to the launch instead of local sports events, clink their beers, cheer rowdily, and yell, some singing the national anthem of Acadia in national pride. Welcome to the newest era of Acadian greatness, the newest era of space dominance, the newest era of the Federal Republic of Acadia.
  5. Hope everything goes well and that you'll be doing better soon!
  6. [RAA] Home | Acadia | Wurld | Poilitics | Business | Tech | Sports Acadian Rocket Launch, Is the Space Program Taking Off? January 4, 2020 by Léana Bonnet AFTER OVER SIXTY YEARS of no real space activity from the Administration de Aérienne et Spatiale d'Acadia, things down at Cape Georges are heating up. The launch pads down there are being used! That's right, you heard me! Tonight, if all goes well, the Vulcan III Rocket will by flying high above Eurth. But first, here's some context. The mission, called simply "The Mun Mission", has an important goal. The four astronauts that have been assigned to man this mission will conduct a study from above the Eurth's lone satellite to gather and document information on both sides of the Mun, both what can be seen from the surface and on the "Dark Side of the Mun." It is rumored that this launch and mission has a second motive: of course to cement Acadia as a possible player in space and a power on Eurth. The first funding for the mission began three years ago as a plan for the revitalization of Acadia's long lost projects. Over the past three years the team at the helm, the mission planners, put together a modern, up-to-date rocket, a group of ripe astronauts-in-training, a team of scientists and experts to work behind the scenes, and most importantly, a mission. The four astronauts manning this mission will be Guillaume Tremble, Samuel Cosineau, Emy Oliver, and Barbara Leclair. The scheduled launch time is around sunset, so make sure to take photos! Over the past week, the AASA has been running tests for the rocket, and so far they have proven successful, with the most successful recordings being yesterday, which of course, gives quite a bit of optimism for the team at the mission. We talked with Samuel Consineau this afternoon. "This is a really exciting moment in my life and the lives of my countless teammates, mission directors, my friends at AASA, and all Acadians.", Cosineau told us earlier today. "Today's the day that we make history in Acadia, in all of Eurth. Me and my peers were talking about this and joking about it yesterday, but this is a really big moment, a really exciting moment." An exciting moment indeed. This is Léana Bonnet writing this evening for RAA. Courtesy of Le Réseau d'Actualités Acadiennes, and its associates. All rights reserved.
  7. Le Réseau d'Actualités Acadiennes RAA Home | Acadia | Wurld | Politics | Business | Tech | Sports The Acadian News Network, or Réseau d'Actualités Acadiennes, more commonly referred to as simply the RAA, is one of the main news providers in Acadia, and is popular among both television and online viewers. The news organization also publishes a newspaper, simply called Les Actualités, meaning "The News." The company was founded in 1956 as the Huere Nationale (National Times), which mainly reported over radio waves. In 1960 the company was relabeled to its current name as the nation transitioned to watching at their screens. The network provides relatively unbiased and direct news coverage of not only events within Acadia but all the wurld.
  8. "So, how do you feel about being the first Acadians in space?", asks Samuel in the Center's break room. A few days had passed since the revealing of their names, and they were preparing for the big day. Launch was tomorrow. "You mean the most hated people among all of our peers? Eh, decent.", jokes Guillaume. "Big day's tomorrow. Can't wait to be celebrated back here down on Earth!", says Barbara enthusiastically. "Can't wait to float around!", adds Emy jokingly. They all laugh. "Well how about we look at the rocket.", says Guillaume. "Sounds like a plan.", replies Emy. They nod in agreement. Image of Vulcan III Rocket. Real image is an artist's projection of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket on a launch pad. They look up at the towering white cylinders that make up the rocket. The tall rocket is the latest product of the AASA, and has all the bells and whistles of the 21st Century. "The future's coming.", whispers Samuel. "And with it, so is Acadia.", adds Barbara.
  9. Welcome to the wonderful region of Eurth!
  10. Long has Acadia been looking at the stars. Such a faraway place, so much to learn. Even the ancient Dinénahasdzáán Empire looked up and imagined the possibilities, created patterns in the sky to represent their legends. In 1958, the government founded the Administration de Aérienne et Spatiale d'Acadia (Acadian Aviation and Space Administration), or AASA, with the hopes of exploring the cosmos. Unfortunately, despite the effort to construct spaceships and other vehicles that could transport man to space, the dream of reaching the stars has not been achieved. Yet. Not all hope is lost. Because at Cape Georges, there is something happening. "Thank you all who have participated in all previous training sessions.", begins Mission Trainer Félicité Perrot. "You have been specially trained for your mission, which is to travel in the Vulcan III rocket and embark on the 6 day mission to orbit the Mun and examine its surface. This mission is to be conducted for research to conclude information about the Mun. Is this understood among all of you? Most nodded or said some kind of indication that they understood. "A select few have been chosen to be on this Mission. Me and a special group of scientists and experts have been overseeing all of your training sessions. We were examining your skills, the way you dealt with situations, and your readiness and preparedness for different environments and such situations.", explains the Trainer. "Depending on these circumstances, we have chosen who will go on this Mission." There was a sweep of whispering and chatter across the small audience of astronauts-in-training who hope to lead this important mission in Acadia's history. "The following are the names of the four astronauts who will man this mission." "Guillaume Tremble" "Samuel Cousineau" "Emy Oliver" "Barbara Leclair" "I will ask that the rest of you leave." Much of the crowd disperses as they flow through the doorways of the room. Four were left. Two men and two women, all of average height. "Hello my apprentices.", says Mission Trainer Perrot. "Welcome to the first Acadian Mun Mission."
  11. Welcome finally to the forums!
  12. A small man shuffles his way out of a limousine, carrying a file of somewhat importance. After all, he did just come out of a government vehicle, and is travelling quite fast through the premises of the Presidential Palace. But what is in those files? "Pardon, excusez-moi!", he says as he squeezes through an assortment of watching tourists, governmental workers, and janitors as he makes his way to the Ministry Offices. Finally he makes his way through the cloud of tourists, and finds a clear area as he nears the off-limits area, where tourists not roam, and the Ministers of all kinds do their important work; where the government does extremely boring stuff. The man enters the quarters of the Acadian Defense Minister. Now here, my friend, is where we find out what is in those files. "I told you I don't want your cheap lump of food, no matter how you spin it or how high the discount price is!", says an angry Bertrand Desroches, Acadian Minister of Defense. He is holding a dart, poised to shoot into the target across the room. "Oh, it's you. Entre" "I have news. Bad news.", says the man. "What is this bad news then, Jacques?", inquires Desroches. "It's the neighboring Diné nation*. They're demanding that the lands on the border be liberated through an annexation, telling us and the international community that it's, and I quote, 'to incorporate all Diné people under the rule of a true Diné nation.' The file I brought contains all the details." "What bull! Why don't we just go ahead an invade 'em and get rid of all these issues. Shouldn't be too hard." Desroches grabs the dart again and throws it to the target, missing it by mere inches. "But that's the problem you see. Invading them now would make the rest of Eurth believe that you are on some sort of an ethnic cleansing mission. That would bring countless issues to the great nation!" "Jacques, you know I'm not the best at this kind of thing. How 'bout you just go to the Foreign Affairs Minister and let 'em talk it out with the Diné." "But sir, with all due respect, we've tried that previously multiple times, they just won't let go of this idea that they are this savior nation. The only option now is too invade them." "Well then maybe we can ignore them and wait for them too invade? At least the blame won't be pinned on us if we don't write the war declaration." He tries once more to shoot at the target, and even though he manages to end up closer, he misses just the same. "Possibly. Only problem is that we could risking our troops sending them to fight the military of the Diné nation. You do know that they have been increasing recruitment for the past five years. And who knows who will support them." "Maybe say that we're spreading democracy?" "That trick has aged. Besides, you would just make all those nations that are not... acceptant, per say, of these democratic ideals, it would make them go and support the Diné regime." And that is when an idea is hatched. "Jacques, I have an idea. What if we fuel a revolution against the Diné regime. We fund organizations looking to overthrow the government. The Diné living inside Acadia have expressed a lot of distaste about how their brothers are abused and oppressed under our neighboring dictatorship, they would surely support this! Then, while their manpower is weakened, we can strike! The international community will see us as supporting the Diné overthrowing an oppressive dictatorship, and because we are not 'restoring democracy' per say, it may not concern other regimes as much! It's a perfect plan." Desroches shoot his last dart into the target, directly hitting the bull's eye. "Well, it's the best idea you have had so far. Do you mind if I bring this up to the President's desk?", asks Jacques. "I most certainly do not. I really think we're on to something now, Jacques, I really do.", says Desroches. "It's an improvement.", agrees Jacques. He leaves Bertrand Desroches, Minister of Defense, and his offices, seeking now the office of the President where this grand scheme will be unveiled to the leader of Acadia. And a salesman advertising the opening of the newest location of the fast food joint for which he works walks up to the Minister's office. Will this scheme prove to actually function as a military campaign. Will the President approve. That is to be revealed, to be revealed. *Diné nation: Neighboring dictatorship with a culture most similar with that or Acadian natives. Founded in the 1830's as an Acadian puppet state, the nation never moved on when Acadia returned to a democratically-elected government. Though they share a similar native culture, both countries have grown apart and now resent each other. The future of their relations is unclear, though it is appearing to only go downhill.
  13. [WIP, will finish soon] October 7, 2019 7:43 AM Corona Time Epsilon, Corona Territory, Aurora "Lucas, stop tugging on my tie!", yells a man at his son. The little boy, who has completely neglected his daily routine of putting on his school clothes, lets go of his father's tie. The father rubs his knuckles atop the boy's head playfully, then straightens his tie. "Dad, stop it, I need to put my clothes for school!", the boy says. The father steps away and slips on his proper work shoes. "Yes, I suppose you do. I don't think they'll let you wear your pajamas when running about in the classrooms." They both laugh and the boy runs off to the closet to change into some more proper clothing and ready himself for his upcoming lectures of education that would come in the next hours. The man walks into the living space of their small apartment. These kinds of accommodations were common across the crowded cities of Epsilon and other Coronan cities. "I'm off for work! See you later!" The man walks up to his wife and gives her an affectionate kiss on the cheek, then hugs each of his three children, including the boy who had just ran out of the closet with half his clothes on backwards. Then, he was out the door. He hopped in his car, the one three spaces away from the entrance to the apartment tower. He would have taken a metro, but those were too busy Monday, especially this time of day. So, he had about three minutes of smooth driving, until he got to Kolonie Circle, where the traffic got extremely backed up. From there it was regular Epsilon traffic habits; the cars were bumper to bumper, no room to move, no way to change lanes, just the same .00000001 miles per hour that everyone goes until something happens that makes the jam move a slight 1% faster. No wonder people left for work so early. October 7, 2019 7:52 AM Aurora Time Rabzidion, Capital, Aurora The car slipped into a tunnel that lead to Rabzidion's Business District. This car, containing the woman who took sales at the seventh cubicle to the left of the door on the 3rd floor of 43 Raesternig Street, was headed for the very building where business was to be done. And yes, it was that woman that was behind the wheel. Now, the traffic in Rabzidion may not be as bad as Epsilon, but it still wasn't a dream. Like every large city, Rabzidion was packed with people slowly making, inching, their way toward their workplace. The vehicle emerges from the tunnel, just to be impolitely stopped by the flash of red painted across one of Rabzidion's many traffic lights. The woman, as she waits for the long light to pass, looks around at the familiar grandeur of Aurora's capital. To her right was the magnificent Wetspaleis, home to the Parliament of Aurora. It's towering pillars soared above all the other cars, trucks, and buses retreating from the depths of the tunnel, making anyone around it feel small. Wonderful carvings from stone told the story of Aurora's history: An empire, once grand, falling to its knees, abused, just to rise again in magnificent glory. Up ahead, the Royal Palace, or the Koninklijk Paleis, could be seen above smaller buildings, with a statue of the first king of Aurora, Dennis I Alveon, founder of the United Kingdoms of Ardia and Aanbreck, holding a sword. A honk from the car behind that of the woman surprises her and sweeps her away from her trance. She realizes that the light had finally altered its color from red to green, signalling the movement of vehicles. She begins moving forward, but for a moment, she had drifted away from the craziness of this regular Monday morning. Thinking about the history of this fine nation she found herself in...
