    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.

    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.

    Hello!

    Looks like you made it. Welcome. We've chatted before. Now I hope to find us getting along in story writing as well.

    No feedback in a month probably means you all agree. I'm moving this out in the open for further feedback.

    Responsibility to Protect

    From: Anna Hackney, EOS delegate To: the joint quorum of the Entente of Oriental States, including observing members Good afternoon dear friends. As the senior representative for the Orioni Empire, I am delighted to share with you the following motion. But first, let me frame our motivations for doing so. We believe that sovereign nations have the responsibility for protecting their population from human rights violations and mass atrocity crimes. This "responsibility to protect" or R2P is based upon the commonly held understanding that each nation is responsible for protecting its populations from war crimes, ethnic cleansing, genocide and crimes against humanity. We believe that EOS should accept that responsibility, including the active prevention of such crimes. This will make EOS stronger in response to a changed security environment. To be more precise: we propose to expand the Charter of the Entente by adding an additional security clause 3.F with a defensive and proportionate commitment to address key concerns such as the prevention of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. As allies, we are deeply committed to EOS. Together, we are what makes peace and security possible. Our partnership makes Europa and Eurth safer and more secure. I look forward to discussing this proposal with you.

    From Skies to Safety (OOC)

    To further this discussion I have gone ahead and replaced the mentions of Vocenae with the nearby nation of Deltannia. I will check with Deltannia via Facebook to make sure he agrees to be mentioned as a part of this RP.

    A Great Europan Collapse

    Hello @Seylos. It's an interesting idea that's been floated before. The collapse of some of these older Europan nations was part of an earlier long RP story. http://www.europans.com/topic/4030-reopening-international-relations/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-22054792 In fact, some might even claim we sort-of have this going on already. If you look at the anti-piracy actions built on this. http://www.europans.com/topic/4092-the-imperial-navy-sets-sail/ If you look at the crisis situation in Afropa. http://www.europans.com/topic/4141-war-on-violetist-liberation-army/ Here are some of the questions that require an answer before moving forward on this: What do the other (semi-)active Europan nations say? I'm tagging them in alphabetical order: @Adaptus, @Afropa, @Cristina, @Fleur de Lys @Magnaeus, @Suverina, @Tagmatium Rules Which areas of the old Europa are going to be in crisis? Who is going to be involved? What would be some possible outcomes? What will happen to the territories that are occupied?

    All the Empty Land is....?

    Quick update. I've made a rough draft with the potential cultures of these open spaces. Moderators of each area are commenting on the draft. Once that round of review is done, I'll publish it here as well for a broader debate. Thanks for your patience. It's good we finally see some progress on this.

    [OOC] Construction Efforts

    @Sunset Sea Islands You've done the right thing in asking this question here. With uncertain issues like this, consulting the RP mentors is the right reflex. And if it is an RP you yourself are involved, an independent opinion can help you find what might be missing or added. Now, about the Manamana project. It's on the equator. You're probably dealing with the rainy season. I'd expect something of 9-12 of RP before it is finished. Is this what you had in mind at the outset? The comments of @Variota are helpful as well. Especially the "letters to home" would be lovely. I already noticed your positive reaction to this. On Tenma I can't really comment right now because I need to read more.
