  1. Hello Toin. I'd like to join Salvia in welcoming you here. Thanks for joining Eurth. You seem to already have experimented with the kind of country you'd like to play. One question that already springs to mind: what could someone buy if they had 100 Terrier coins?
  2. Another Nuke Day is coming up. Is anyone interested in reforming our faction Kim Jong-nuke, or do you prefer joining up with a greater inter-regional faction?
  3. More green spaces in the blue delta ZUIDHAVEN -- A group of Zuidhaven residents has launched a campaign that aims to protect the city’s ever-shrinking number of green spaces and wildlife habitats. Called Biodiversity in the Delta, the movement will bring together urban planners, environmental experts and law students to push policies that safeguard flamingo populations and the city’s parks, forests and mudflats. If successful it will enhance Zuidhaven’s green credentials – and its character. Flamingos wading against a backdrop of the city skyline is a sight that has come to define Or
  4. The problem of our age: when rich people get the rules rewritten in their favour.
  5. This is Epic History TV's guide to building the perfect castle, based on the development of European medieval castles over 400 years of history. Castle origins They trace the origins of the castle in the feudal system that emerged in France c.900 CE, and look at the early motte-and-bailey castle, used by the Normans to subjugate England and Wales in the 11th century. Castle development They then look at how castle's became stronger and more sophisticated, with the addition of stone curtain walls, massive keeps, towers (square, round and D-shaped), as well as powerful gateho

Learn all about sailing, shiptypes, cannons and more in this worldbuilding video from Randy Ellefson, author of the bestselling The Art of World Building series, and founder of World Building University.

  7. Version 4.5.1 was finally released. https://invisioncommunity.com/release-notes/ This morning I took the time to upgrade our systems. You will probably noticed some differences. For one, our default theme was changed. I preserved most of our "look". The trophies plugin needs to be updated before it works again. Do let me know here if you find something that broke or changed for the worse.
  8. Home | Orioni | World | Business | Tech | Science | Culture | Health | Sports Getting the show on the rails NORDHAVEN -- Later this year the State Railway of Orioni will take delivery of a high-speed train constructed by the Cristinese manufacturer Locomotiva Bizantina. The leporhundo means greyhound in @Cristina's second official language, Esperanto. It can travel at up to 220 km/h and has been designed for comfort. It will initially service the O'polis-Nordhaven line along the Owara canal. Overall, the project will include a 58 km section of existing rail line and 436 km of a new h
  9. With the latest update of @Salvia and the Discord discussions, I get the feeling we keep moving the goalpost. This is what it looks like from my point of view. First it was about allowing in new members which is fine with me. The Aurelian League had already hinted at that. Then it became about redefining the zones and that was always going to happen. A more equal share for all signatories. Now it's about whether or not EOS remains a signatory to ARTHA or not. On an OOC level I have no problem with the pushback. It makes the international relations more interesting. RL An
  10. Yes, I know: December is still a loooong way off. But with the first half of 2020 over, it would seem like a good time to start collecting nominations. We don't always remember in December what was written in January. So why not use the Summer lull to open up the discussion. No need to share your complete list. You can always amend it later in the year. Nominations Nominations are open up the community. You can nominate more than once. This is an opportunity to tell everyone about that great story you wrote that went unnoticed. Are you feeling low on nomination inspiration?
  11. In two week I have a few days of vacation planned. From Monday the 3rd of August to Friday the 7th. That is, if this 2nd wave of COVID-19 remains under control. We're not flying. Just driving. But under the previous lockdown only work-related travel was allowed. If all goes to plan I won't have access to a computer, but may check my phone once in a while.
  12. Congratulations @Eskeocha on your graduation through persistence and effort. The culture you describe is a little bit vague ("Alaskan") but we can certainly work on collecting more details. From what I imagine the area looks like, it'd be a good place for historical settlements of whale hunters and other large marine mammals. The climate would fit the region. The most recent climate map shows a warm and cold current splitting off your east coast. The latest map rework will include islands towards the east as well. The land area you selected for your stats is [4] "very large" . T
  13. Mr Wayanor spilt his drink. It happened while Minister Remmen was staring at him. The glass had slipt his hand, and now his pants were all wet. It was a fitting metaphor for the position he found himself in. Minister Remmen's arguments were rock-solid. And that last little sting, using his words against him? Wayanor was sure it would follow him around for the rest of his career. "Minister Remmen," he said calmly while his assistant Ms Julia Atenas tried dabbing his pants with some tissues that quickly started to fall apart, "As you can see, I must ask for a brief recess while I change int
