EurthVision Song Contest 2018

Recommended Posts

eurthvision-canastota.jpg

Hello, community.

1. Contest Name

The name for this song contest is not yet established. The image above is just one example. Suggestions are welcome.

Update: It has been decided that our contest will be called the EurthVision Song Contest.

2. Hosting Bids

We're looking for players willing to host an international music competition. Besides having the honour of being the host nation, you will be responsible for providing a venue and welcoming participants. If there are multiple bids to host this event, the person to make the strongest case for their nation will be selected by public vote. Some relevant examples of earlier stories include:

Update: The single hosting bid we received was from @Prymont. They have the honour of hosting the 2018 event and will be your Game Master for this RP.

3. Contest Signup

Why reinvent the wheel? The description of earlier NationStates Song Contests helps explain how a contest like this is run. Here is how to participate:

Quote

Source: Song Contest 57

  1. SIGNUP. To start, you must sign up for the contest. Do so by using the form below and posting that you sign up in this thread. Make sure you sign up before the cutoff date. You won't be penalized if you sign up and don’t end up posting a song. You then post the song in the IC thread after a host vote (see previous contests to see what a "normal" post looks like).
  2. HOSTING. At the end of the host bidding period, all nations which have signed up at that point may vote for the nation that will host the contest. Instructions will be posted by this account, and all host votes should be telegrammed to this account as well. The winning bidding nation will then create the IC thread.
  3. ROLEPLAY. The contest is based upon the Eurovision Song Contest: nations will RP the performance of their song. No real-life song can be entered into the WorldVision Song Contest; of course, the melody can be used (usually linked via YouTube). At least 80% of the song’s lyrics must be original, and translations are not allowed. Nations are free to choose to host a national final or internally select their representative. English is not compulsory, and other languages are encouraged.
  4. VOTING. Once the IC thread has been posted whenever the winning bidding nation chooses, nations will submit songs before the deadline. After the deadline nations may not edit or alter their song in any way, unless otherwise instructed by the Committee. Also, after the deadline and any interval act (wait for the signal from the host nation), nations vote, ranking their top ten songs in the following format: 12-10-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 in the IC thread. Nations may not vote for themselves. All nations that post a song in the IC thread must vote.
4

This will also serve as the official participant's signup sheet. Name your participant, and perhaps include an example of their music. YouTube anyone?

[b]Nation Name:[/b] Your nation's name goes here.
[b]Official Broadcaster:[/b] Your official broadcaster for EV goes here.
[b]Song Title:[/b] The IC Song title goes here.
[b]Artist(s) Name(s):[/b] The name of your act goes here.
[b]Tune:[/b] The real life tune you're basing your song on goes here.
[b]Lyrics:[/b] The lyrics to your song, must be 80% original.

Have fun and enjoy!

Iverican: Kiss me with your full beard mouth
Derthaler: Sure my Iverican friend

Variotan: We have big gay get-together
Iverican: You’re so beautiful
Derthaler: Do I get to see your c*ck?
Variotan: Surely, I don’t wear any pants
Derthaler and Iverican: No pants

CHORUS
All: We’ve banged out on the Ygros
Iverican: And practiced butt gymnastics
Variotan: We’ll meet again
Derthaler: Goodbye my friend
All: Next Saturday we’ll bang on Ygros, once again, once again.

Song: "Looking for Freedom"

One morning in June
some twenty years ago
I was born a rich man's son
I had everything that money could buy,
but freedom I had none

I've been looking for freedom
I've been looking so long
I've been looking for freedom
Still the search goes on
I've been looking for freedom
since I left my home town
I've been looking for freedom
Still it can't be found

I headed down the track
my baggage on my back
I left the city far behind
Walking down that road
with my heavy load
trying to find some ease of mind

Father said: "You'll be sorry, son,
if you leave your home this way
And when you realize
the freedom money buys
You'll come running home someday"

I've been looking for freedom
I've been looking so long
I've been looking for freedom
Still the search goes on
I've been looking for freedom
Since I left my home town
I've been looking for freedom
Still it can't be found

I made a lot of dues
had plenty to lose
travelling across the land
Worked on a farm,
got some muscle in my arms
but still I'm not a self-made man
I feel the run for many years to come
I'll be searching door to door
And given some time
some day I'm gonna find
the freedom (freedom, freedom) I've been searching for

I've been looking for freedom
I've been looking so long
I've been looking for freedom
Still the search goes on
I've been looking for freedom
Since I left my home town
I've been looking for freedom
Still it can't be found
Still it can't be found

So, obviously, I'm in. In regards to rules, sign up sheets and whatnot, I suggest we look at the WorldVision Song Contest and the World Hit Festival that are held on the regular NS forums. These have existed for years (especially WVSC) and the rules are basically easy yet rigid enough to properly enforce. https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=414503

In regards to the name, I think something like EurthVision would do perfectly. EuropaVision would make more sense in regards to the region name but seeing as Europa is only one continent of Eurth, that'd be strange.

Any, signup:

Nation Name: Het Huisselant Variota
Official Broadcaster: Nasionale TeleSicht Variota (NTSV)
Song Title: National Final to come
Artist(s) Name(s): See above

I'm definitely down for this. I wouldn't mind hosting, and I do have a national music festival coming up in the summer that I'll write about in my newsroom - EuropaVision or whatever could be the grande finale if I'm chosen. 

As for the name of the contest, I propose Euravision - like Europa is Europe but with an 'a', Euravision is Eurovision but with an 'a' too. Original, I know. However, I like @Variota's idea of EurthVision too, and I'll also steal his sign-up format.

 

Nation Name: United States of Prymont
Official Broadcaster: Prymont Television One, or PTVO
Song Title: You & I
Artist Name: Foolish Bandit
Tune:

[Hook]
You and I, you and I, you and I
Now it's you and I, you and I

[Verse 1]
Pull up in that K3, outfit cost 10G
Nobody can top me, better when you're with me
Together we are free
My place, we can do what you want at your pace
Memories of the night we erase, can't go back
Acting out on set, we making out, getting some flak
Now look at us, they can't catch up, we run the pack
Was feeling so alone, gotta cry for a minute
Send a text out your way, you be over in a minute
I be over in a minute, girl cut me some slack
We were destined together, it's the zodiac
I'm putting all these thoughts down on the track
I make masterpieces, nah this ain't whack
I tour all the globe, I do not fall back
The bandit era, people hear her, fear attack
Too big for y'all, Noah Marshall
Nah we ain't you, we don't play ball
I'm waitin' right here to throw the curveball
The harder they rise, the harder they fall, I hate the rise
I'm feeling so alone on the tour bus, can't write the chorus
Just got you on my mind, can't believe you're taken
I write it on paper, my mind is mistaken
Ah, damn, forgot the words, so caught up, man I lost the verse
Die in the back and the hearse in reverse
I ain't going nowhere in the front seat, nah, deceased
I don't act, I just play a lot, I ain't rich, I get paid a lot
Wannabe rappers wanna be me
So why ain't they singing that Foolish B?
My life isn't simple, it's in 3D
Nah, man, it ain't easy
Crowd goes wild, lost in her smile I ain't seen for a while
Got her on speed dial
Free at last, gonna chase her down man, yeah I try it, yeah I try it
And I need you now, so come on now girl, go figure out
And my fans all sayin', oh, they going out?
Turns out that they fake it, hide out in the public
Come and find you, paparazzi hound you, people beggin'
Say something, say something

[Hook]
You and I, you and I, you and I
Now it's you and I, you and I

SYSTEM EURTH: SYNTHETIC SOCIETY

(0:00 - 0:35 talks about the internet unifying people across the globe regardless of nationality, race, or religion)

The dawn of synthetic society 
Connecting mankind more than ever 
All around the world people are looking 
Down at screens in search for new faces in there
Everybody wants exactly the same 
Find new friends to hold them tight 
Where they're from doesn't play a role 
In the dawn of new society

Who are you people 
Do you know who I am
I just want to be friends 
Are we all one 
Every day this world becomes more interconnected 
How long will it take for us to unify

(Is somebody out there) x16

Who are you people 
Do you know who I am
I just want to be friends 
Are we all one 
Every day this world becomes more interconnected 
How long will it take for us to unify

Billions

Harmony 
Diplomacy
Unity

Synthetic world
We are all one

Nation Name: Kingdom of Cristina
Official Broadcaster: CrisTel
Song Title: Vendeta
Artists Names: Insanguinata

Tune:

 

-----

OOC: Translation of the original lyrics by Rosae Crucis:

 

Believe in us!

Faith is a cause that

the Power of the masses will elevate

Hot blood will flow like fire in your veins

Like lava from a volcano our anger will explode

 

Vengeance! Vengeance!

Now the enemy will know it

He's already lost

He's afraid

And so he'll pray

The Rose Cross

 

Faith, Power, Vengeance and Liberty

Our weapons raised to Glory

Faith, Power, Vengeance and Liberty

To Light, to Glory

 

On the ground I see the bodies of brothers

they paid for the honor of the motherland

that the past had erased with blood

But her sons are ready to rewrite history

Like their fathers, their ancestors, they still raise their swords

 

The reasons for their fighting, living, and dying

Faith - in a god

Faith - in a creed

Faith - in a people

Faith - in a man

 

Power - over nature

Power - over reason

Power - over life

Power - over death

 

Vengeance - for honor

Vengeance - for wrongs endured

Vengeance - for misery

Vengeance - for lost sons

 

Liberty!

Nation Name: Orioni

Official Broadcaster: Orioni Broadcasting Company

Song Title: Give It To You

Artist Name: Kokega

Tune: https://youtu.be/IIj7j7mtNS4

Lyrics: 

(First three verses of nonesense.)

I saw a man who was packing-packing
Oh now I need to know
So should I chase him now, night and day
Gotta see this now, 'cause I need to know
Before the shock-a, after the shock-a
Choose this kiss or what?

Oh wa-waw
I see a man with a dog
Matchy matchy
They're jogging
Okay Okay
Call me up

(Chorus)
Hey come, show it to yah
Come here man, show it to yah
Ori-babe give it to yah
Nothing's gonna stop me, and you know
Let me give it to you
Say it to you
Hey hey come
I said come here now

Now hey, I know what you've done

(OOC: This topic really needed some more girl power. And so we recruited all eight girls from SNSD as our band, and took some liberties with the Korean lyrics from another band.)

In collaboration with the government of the United States of Prymont, Northern Music Entertainment (NME) are deeply honoured to put forth the United States' bid to host the first global song contest, EurthVision! NME has worked closely with event organisers across the country to find a suitable location to host EurthVision, and we've come to a provisional agreement with the Canastota City Council. If the United States were successful in securing the bid, NME would be able to provide the services of the OstportX Arena, the largest indoor arena in Prymont.

Millenium-Dome-1.jpg?itok=4_fYSN59

Built in 1999, the OstportX Arena has a capacity of 20,000, and has hosted national and international events before such as Prymont's Year 2K Party, the 2003 Argic Tennis Championship Finals, the Argic Heavyweight Boxing Championships since 2005, and multiple concerts from various global artists including Foolish Bandit and Leon Haugen. 

The city of Canastota is also the largest city in the United States, with over two million inhabitants. The city can comfortably accommodate over 2,000 delegates, journalists, and spectators in a variety of four and five star hotels. The Canastota International Airport is the second busiest airport in the city, which maintains two runways and four terminals. In recent years, Canastota has received over ß100m in funding from the Transport Ministry to improve its infrastructure, and can offer cheap taxi, bus, train, metro, and bicycle journeys by using the country's unique Salmon travel card. 

Canastota, Ostport, and the United States in general offers a rich, deep, historical culture, one of fascinating tales and exciting endeavours. Since the formation of the United States in 1995, the country has strived to appeal globally as a rising hub of culture and entertainment. While motorsport is held dear in the hearts of many, the people of Prymont are also fans of music, performance, dance, and diversity. Hosting the 2018 EurthVision song contest would open the possibility to bring thousands of visitors to enjoy the fun and excitement that Canastota has to offer. 

NME has allocated ß15m to host EurthVision, and believes that the United States will benefit further than that from tourism and culture boosts. In the name and heart of EurthVision, NME is also considering the potential of hosting annual national song and talent competitions, to inspire locals to bring out the best in themselves and entertain the nation. Canastota would also offer cultural days, allowing people of varying backgrounds and histories to line the streets and show the best of Prymont. NME are dedicated to bringing out the best that the country has to offer, and believes that hosting EurthVision will only support our cause.

Northern Music Entertainment have also contracted Noah Marshall, who performs under the alias Foolish Bandit, to represent the United States of Prymont in EurthVision 2018. The global entertainer, with millions of fans worldwide, has recently released his third studio album, Inspire Your Love, and will perform the new single You & I for Prymont's song. Marshall was born and raised in Canastota, and currently stars in, writes, and directs a TV comedy show of the same name, displaying the lives of aspiring Canastotans. NME is confident that Foolish Bandit is the best man to represent Prymont, and will bring much needed attention to EurthVision.

real name: Quennel Motte

Tune:

Lyrics:

 

[Verse 1]
Venez frères et venez soeurs, Venez de près et venez de loin
Venez célébrer cet homme qui nous a libérés dans ce coin
La lutte est arrivée, mais nous avions rien fait du mal.

Alors viens, il est temps pour la chanson finale:

[Chorus]
Ô Jacques! Fier et brave!
Il nous a montrés le chemin, Il nous apportais de l'égalité
Ô Jacques! Saints et saufs!
Il nous a mis dans l'chemin vertueux (Ô Loi)
Il a marché l'chemin d'égalité

[Verse 2]
Venez pères et venez mères, venez un et venez tous 
Viens le voir toi-même si vos oreilles ne dites pas tout
Il a vécu seulement un moment, mais on se souviendra pour toujours
Maintenant, il n'y a pas d'oppression dans nos jours

[Chorus]
Ô Jacques! Fier et brave!
Il nous a trouvés l'chemin, Il nous apportais de l'égalité
Ô Jacques! Saints et saufs!
Il nous a mis dans l'chemin vertueux (Ô Loi)
Il a marché l'chemin de l'égalité

[Verse 3]
Venez les anciens et venez les enfants, venez de partout 
Il faut voir la fortesse dans la collective, quand on lutte contre le loup
L'ancien pays nous a promis mais ce sont de menteurs!
Alors prends le livre et saute dans le choeur 

[Chorus]
Ô Jacques! Fier et brave!
Il nous a trouvés l'chemin, Il nous apportais de l'égalité
Ô Jacques! Saints et saufs!
Il nous a mis dans l'chemin vertueux (Ô Loi)
Il nous a mis dans l'chemin vertueux (Ô Loi)

Il nous a mis dans le chemin vertueux!

"Coffee break!" Rebecca squeaked. Well, for Rebecca coffe break was all the time. As the chief forensic scientist of the Central Bureau for Public Safety of the Sunset Sea Islands she was entitled to do her job however she wanted to, as long as she did it. Usually, the way she fulfilled her tasks was more than unconventional, but her quirky and lovable personality made her popular with everyone in the bureau. Now, her eyes were glued to one of the screens in her office. As a young girl she used to travel a lot. The Commonwealth of @Variota had earned a special spot in her heart. Never could she forget the long nights she spent in the pulsating clubs of Ferrefaaierhafen. It was only natural that she was interested in who would become the artist who Variota would dispatch to @Prymont to compete in the EurthVision Song Contest.

When she saw Cor Wilm Heukroot,  the presenter of the show, she tought that they would get along great. Their clothing styles were equally flamboyant and she immediately felt her sympathy for the Variotans reignite.

Rebecca let out a long "Awwwww" when the first song came up. The Keltterrakkers twins always made her heart melt. Those boys were just the cutest things ever. "I don't care what others think about them, they are kawaii as frick! Who cares if they play around with some weird stuff in the depths of Ferrefaaierhafen, they're young for Pete's sake! That's what we all did at that age! Computer, send a message to the VarioVisie hotline voting for number one!"

Next up was Hete Hank. Although Beccy really loved the song as it made her think of the Sunset Sea Islandian beaches and the never-ending parties of the Variotan seaside, it could not overcome her love for cute little boys.

The last contestant was Filomedes 'Filo' Jonkheere, but Rebecca was only listening with one ear.

She noticed that her coffee went empty meanwhile. "Wellp, time to get some caffeine and cut up some baddies!" Rebecca laughed before sprinting to the coffee machine.

OOC: Vote goes to the Keltterrakkers

Short reminder for @Shffahkia, @Derthalen, @Girkmand, @Cristina and @Orioni that tomorrow today is the last day of EurthVision. So far, only three songs have been performed and it would be a shame if the final selection was only between those. (Although I shouldn't be the one to point this out since I've barely managed meet that deadline myself, lol.)

      OOC: @Fleur de Lys, you weren't contacted about the invitation of these new members because you'd left Europa. You still haven't returned to the Discord, which is where we discussed these changes, so it's very obvious that you weren't consulted. Why would we consult someone that's left the region?

      OOC: Only gone in the sense that I don't park my nation here anymore. I visit the forum and RMB quite frequently. After all, I didn't put years of keeping the lights on just to entirely walk away. And just in case anyone was wondering, my nation uses soft Cs, not hard. As such, you pronounce the full name as: vOH Sin Nay, and the capital city as: vOH See Ah. Otherwise, on Discord or as the name I go by most everywhere else "Voc", that's a hard sound, like saying the word "Voke".
      Anyway,  I'd rather do this in a OOC thread, but as there is none, well, gonna do it here. Sorry.
      For the record, I authorized the use of mentioning Vocenae while visiting the Europa Discord, but I did not, however, authorize full use of it, or characters, named or otherwise, within it. This is a very clear use of another player's IP without permission, and while the scenario surrounding it is different, the problem behind it is no different than is I or any other player decided to go "And a group of corrupt Andallan politicians and soldiers had reached out for supporters of a coup". It's taking control of another player's assets, no matter if they're 'here' or gone entirely and it's not acceptable.
      Sorry if this comes off as harsh. I've had more than a few people steal things from me and my nation over the years and it's left me more than a little defensive when people take liberties with my stuff.
      Again, for the record, here is the amount of content that I gave permission for:
      This was the extent in which I was led to believe you would be mentioning my nation, which again, I gave permission for.
      I did NOT, however, give permission for use of anything else involving my nation. As such, I'm going to have to ask you to remove all references to my nation, beyond the above, from your post. Again, sorry if this sounds harsh, blunt or mean-spirited. It is not intended that way, but I will defend my IP. And as a basic creative rule, always, ALWAYS try to get permission from another player or if that player no longer exists, use a NPC nation. Don't ever use someone else's property without permission.
      And if anyone EVER needs to contact me concerning the usage of my nation in an RP, or just RP ideas in general, I am always a simple Telegram, PM or Discord Message away. PLEASE contact me as get my permission before using my nation again in the future. Thank you.

    • BREAKING: President Duval announces snap general election for late November; first Prymontian Rus elections due November 2nd NEW HALSHAM, COURTMARSH - President George Duval has confirmed that, amidst the rumours of the past few days, the United States will be holding a snap general election on November 30th. This will come as a surprise to few, as rumours and hints have been circulating since September that pressure within Courtmarsh House has been building for a new parliament. The public are holding Duval to account for the failure to meet election promises: lower military spending, reduce unemployment, increase public services spending, and stabilise the chaotic political situation of central Argis. Politicians are also unhappy with Duval, as the National Party are now being accused of rigging the historic July 2017 elections to hand themselves an overwhelming majority. Prymont's five main political parties have been given just under six weeks to prepare and publish their election campaigns. The National Party confirmed that Duval will be their President if their campaign is successful, and despite their declining support figures, they are still the party to beat. The People's Party, a centre-right conservative group headed by Felix Frey, are believed to be the biggest threat to the National's majority, as they appeal to the public by promoting capitalism and promising the generation of thousands of jobs. The United Prymont Future Party, another centre-left organisation much like the Nationals, are believed to be a slightly riskier alternative, as they promise to reverse the recent tax increases and lower the cost of living. PNN will provide detailed coverage of the lead-up to election day. In addition to this news, the President has also revealed that the newly formed Prymontian Rus will have their own general election on November 2nd, after months of trouble and turmoil. The USP humanitarian groups have been successful in quelling the disputes of the land, and have sought enough former and new politicians to create a varied political landscape. The National Party-backed Iskander Yegerov, of the National Rus Party, is a firm favourite for voters and fellow politicians alike to win the Premiership.  This news has not been met without trouble in the United States, as voters have gathered on the streets of New Halsham to protest Prymont's involvement in the new country. Many believe that the National Party are using the former Hellenic Rus state to gain further political control over central Argis, and to channel funds into boosting the United States' military capabilities. However, the 'takeover' of the country can be a positive investment, as engineers have already started work on the Canamo Canal in newly purchased southern lands bordering the Mediargic Sea, which will massively improve maritime trade with the area and propel local economies into significant wealth.

Ostport's considerable growth since the creation of the United States has been hard to ignore, and Canastota has long been the most populous city in the country. Many companies are now choosing to locate their headquarters in the state's capital, such as massive economic benefactors the Kaldestad Aamot Group, the Northern Bank of Ostport financial giant, and alpine equipment specialists Koren. It is also understood that the completion of the Canamo Canal in late 2019 will bring great trade benefits to Canastota, the docks of which are already receiving β300m for upgrades to handle the added capacity. This monumental amount of money for one state will be going to several good public causes. Public transport will be the recipient of approximately half of this capital, to invest in new transport hubs, rail and bus routes, modern equipment, and new job roles. Hospitals in the state will also receive funding to ease staff restraints and modernise equipment, while money will also go to supporting families who have lost jobs through the demise of the fishing industry as well as reorganising public services such as unemployment schemes, homelessness reduction plans, and charities chosen by the public. The plan is the brainchild of Jasper Revheim, a critical figure in Ostportian politics since the 2017 elections. Revheim represents the National Party, and hopes that this scheme will support his chances of reelection in November.
      High speed trains like these, pictured in Canastota's Sparby Station as part of the Canastota-New Halsham Line, will become common with the new funding.   Kaldestad Aamot Group purchases Central Canastota Sports Stadium KAP STADIUM, OSTPORT - The Central Canastota Sports Stadium was constructed in 1995 to bring sports in the United States to a global stage. It is the current home of the Prymontian Yetis, the country's national football team, as well as the Canastota Sharks, one of the top teams in the domestic league. Over the years, the CCSS has also hosted music concerts, rugby matches, and boxing events, showcasing the diversity of the arena. The Prymontian Football Association, the governing body of football in the United States, also calls the stadium it's home.  In 2012 the stadium underwent expensive renovations to bring it up to date with modern standards and equipment, as well as providing a higher seating capacity and providing space within the stadium grounds for public shopping areas to provide an additional source of income. In 2017, the stadium went up for sale, as the National Party sought to generate revenue and eliminate unnecessary expenditure. Today, a new owner has been found in the Kaldestad Aamot Group, one of the largest companies in the US.  The stadium has been renamed to the KAP Stadium, promoting the largest brand within the KAG, and CEO Erik Bruun has revealed plans to create a 'greater sports complex'. These plans include a superdome for domed sports and exhibition events, a velodrome, an aquatics centre, and an indoor karting circuit. The cost of purchasing the stadium and surrounding land is yet to be disclosed, but it is believed that the Group will be spending billions in the coming years to create the world standard in sporting complexes.

The Prymontian Yetis were successful in qualifying for the Cup, and drew in a friendly against Limonaia before the league commenced. In the first game, the Yetis beat @Soreana by 3 goals to 1, placing them atop the standings with the Limonaians. The second round of matches were held on the 20th, and Prymont were victorious once more, beating @Limonaia 2-1 to improve upon their previous draw. This win kept the Yetis at the top of the table, joined only in points by @Variota. Thus far, the Yetis have scored the most goals in the tournament, and have the greatest positive goal difference. The team couldn't have gotten off to a better start, and are receiving great praise from supporters, but pundits are yet to be complacent with their position. In years gone by, the Yetis have shown glimmers of hope, only to be shot down shortly after by poor plays, inadequate players, and failing leadership. Team manager Nojus Fauskanger assembled a mixed squad of promising youths and experienced veterans for the 2018 @Orioni World Cup, and while the team exited that tournament in the group stages, many applauded their performance. Now, with weak links out and new players in, the Yetis are showing stronger than ever, and many are confident that they will go on to the quarter finals in December. Others are adamant that it is only a matter of time before the team return to their old ways of failure and demise, but captain Vincent Borge hopes to silence those critics. "Our team has played brilliantly so far, and we've changed our training methods and squad rotation to ensure that we're always at our best. We've got some amazing players on board this year, and it's now the start of something great for Prymont's national football scene." The Yetis will next play @Seylos on the 24th of October.

    • Transport Ministry, Dartha "...of course, we'll give regular updates to the Senate as requested...thank you Senator Charvanek...and a good day to you too," and he hung up the phone. Miro Tumel had just been promoted to Chief Engineer, the immediate subordinate to the Minister, two weeks earlier after his predecessor was removed from his position due to a major disagreement with a powerful Jaridan senator. The identity of this politician was never divulged but he suspected that it was his newfound senatorial backer, Livana Charvanek. Now wasn't the time to contemplate this and rather to put his skills to work on getting the high-speed railway project off the ground. Up until today, Yhfillain, the more notable face of the Ministry, had been charged almost exclusively on operating the public transport system - the commuter railways of the three major cities, the intercity bus network, and the various riverbus services along the major waterways and along the coast of the Apnex Sea. Now, this body had been ordered to be responsible for the planning and construction of a high-speed line between the capital, Dartha, and the third-largest (yet second-most important) city, Peldred to the southeast in the Chetris Province. This was a completely foreign territory for the Ministry. He knew that the Senate wanted quick results to show the masses that they were addressing their concerns. He adjusted himself in his desk chair and pressed a buzzer on his intercom. "Elvia, can you come in here please?" he asked. She was his secretary, equally attractive and unemotional in her work. "Yes sir," she inquired, getting her pad at the ready to take down his instructions. "I want you to work with Jeran and Ulik in preparing a contract posting for an engineering and design consultant to help us with the high-speed project." She nodded in acknowledgment. "Both of them already have all the details from me as to what is required of our eventual contractor," he said pausing for a moment. "And one other thing," he began, Elvia was attentive, "Senator Chavarnek and I are supposed to meet every week, can you work with her aide and set it up." Elvia began skimming his calendar as he was saying this. "I'll get on it right away. Anything else sir?" she inquired. "Not now," he responded. "That will be all." She nodded once more and left the room. After she was out of the office, he picked up his phone and called Almor. "My friend, how are you...and the children...good, good. I am sure you heard the latest over Tlaru Aihrifv Rheilhhu...you have? Then I don't have to go over the entire story with you...is it possible for you to arrange a meeting between me, the Mayor (Maiori) of Peldred, Cildan; and Chetris Governor (Jahærenen) Lakol? Thank you. Call me on my cellphone the moment you have that three-way conversation confirmed...we'll talk again soon, have a good day..."

    • "...sounding second alarm at Via Zannoni 3381, fire has spread from vehicle to nearby housing..." "...additional units requested at Via Renauld 477 for domestic disturbance, neighbor reports argument regarding footballing..." "Turn that off." "...all available units in area, respond immediately to Embassy of Asgeirria, diplomatic quarter, this is an officer needs help call..." "...10-16, 10-16, respond immediately for support to Via Rocca de Baldi 88, fire unit reports being under attack by hooligans..." "I SAID TURN THAT RADIO OFF." Senior Inspector Prisco Vigliotti bellowed the order at the driver of the police bus, who finally switched off the dispatch radio. Vigliotti did not even bother to mutter a thank you before turning back to his platoon of riot officers. "We are thirty seconds out. Remember: no deadly force. This is the eighth game in ten years that we haven't lost. The president does not want this success undermined by bloodshed." The field officer of the Faramontese Paramilitary Police had barely finished that last statement when the bus suddenly lurched to a stop, nearly throwing the man -- the equivalent of a captain in the army -- to the ground. "I can't get any closer," the driver said, "there's fire trucks in the way." "Amateurs," Vigliotti remarked with contempt, eyeing the firefighting vehicles, before turning back to his men. "Alright, then. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR. DISEMBARK, NOW. MOVE!" The thirty paramilitaries onboard jumped to their feet and quickly exited the vehicle through its three doors, forming up on the pavement outside. They found a scene of utter chaos. The local and national police had been trying to keep order near Terrome Stadium, but clearly, that effort had failed. Injured policemen were sitting everywhere, being helped by firefighters and paramedics. Up ahead, Vigliotti could see that some firefighters and other volunteers were helping to maintain the police's haphazard riot line. The acrid smell of smoke and the sound of sirens filled the air, but above all else, it was the noise of the crowd -- the screaming, the breaking glass, the brawling -- that stood out.  "Well," Vigliotti said to no one in particular, staring past the police line at mob of several thousand Faramontese football fans violently celebrating their team's narrow escape of defeat, "it would appear we have our work cut out for us."
