A Voyage of Discovery - Open

Recommended Posts

The Royal Scientific Institutes Head of Ocean Studies, Dr. Katarina Maydorft stood on the quay side looking at the vessel, the final touches were being put together but she could already see the shape of it. The ship stood like a giant sail poking through the waves that gently buffeted it. Beneath the waves she knew that much more of the vessel existed, a perfectly designed ship to allow her and those recruited from across the globe to observe the ocean depths. It was a unique project and she couldn't wait to welcome those willing to join her. She made her way to her office and pulled out a folder of personnel files telling her about the crew. She'd meet them all in a weeks time when the ship's grand unveiling was carried out by her nations own Queen, a ceremony that was exciting her. 


 

OOC - So I essentially plan a wander around the world looking at weird fish and stuff. Chance for a bit of a character driven RP. Everyone welcome.

Maily had many friends who went to Argis at some point in time. Maybe they studied in @Prymont for a semester or went to @Iverica during their holidays. It was ironic that Maily had first gone to Antargis before her first trip to the original Argis. She had spent most of her life learning, first for school, then for university and finally for her doctorate. In the meantime, she learned @Fleur de Lysian, Anglish and Oharic and how to play the piano and the violin on behalf of her parents. Now, that she was an esteemed scientist at the young age of 31, she finally had her life in her own hands. Her maritime expertise secured a spot on the first mission to Simon Station for her. Now, that mid-winter raged on the frozen continent, Maily applied for a different mission. She wanted to see as much of the world as she possibly could, therefore, she was delighted when she received the letter of acceptance from the @Morheimian Royal Institute of Sciences.

Earlier, an MRIS employee came by to pick up her equipment. One of her main tools she did not give away was her camera. It was probably the most expensive thing she had ever owned. From atop the cliff on which her hotel stood, Maily could see the harbour. She walked up to the small stone wall separating the pavement from the brink of the abyss. The yet unnamed ship was a speck of white, right next to the harbour. She mounted the objective with the most powerful magnification she owned onto her camera and took a look again. Now, she could clearly see the futuristic vessel and the security preparations for the Queen's arrival.

Maily smiled. It was a smile of excitement.

She put her camera away and walked off towards the harbour. Soon, the Queen was to christen the vessel. Maybe Maily would even have the chance to drop a curtsy in front of her. But most importantly, a new adventure was awaiting.

    • @Mauridiviah's Mundus Liber ranks Prymont 8th globally on Inalienable Rights - ATARA Delegate speaks out controversially on survey's flaws NEW HALSHAM, COURTMARSH - Yesterday, the Mundus Liber Institute published the results for their Inalienable Rights Survey, the third global ranking they've releases this year, which ranks nations across the globe based on rights such as working hours, bearing arms, seeking asylum, and drug use restrictions. The United States was ranked eighth overall, for:  no right to bear arms foreigners not allowed to seek asylum adultery is illegal no capital punishment hard drugs are illegal Previously, Prymont has ranked third on the Freedom Index, and second on the LGBT Rights survey, with this placement of eighth coming as a shock to many. Since 2017, the government has worked tirelessly to promote freedom and rights in the country, reversing the negative effects of the socialist tendencies that held back the country from 1995 to 2017. These positive changes were apparent in the first two rankings, but many have called for Prymont to change their stance regarding inalienable rights with the release of the current survey's results. Culture Minister Brooke Weitz agreed to walk PNN through the laws that limited Prymont's final ranking, and to provide an explanation as to why they are in place. PNN learned that bearing arms is illegal to prevent frequent public shootings that are seen in countries where the right to bear arms are present, and to generally ensure the safety of the general populace; foreigners are prevented from seeking asylum due to former legislation implemented by the socialist Freedom Party, and the current National Party are seeking to overturn it; adultery is illegal to promote healthy relationships for the younger generations; capital punishment is illegal as it is seen as excessively harsh, but minor advocate groups are pushing to legalise it; and hard drugs are illegal to ensure the health and safety of the general populace, and to prevent severe health effects that come with the abuse of hard drugs. It's easy to see why these laws are in place once the explanations have been provided, yet thousands took to Wittier this morning to express their dismay and anger at their government. Foreigners being disallowed to seek asylum came heavily under attack, with many calling for capital punishment to be reinstated for society's worst offenders. There was also some support to legalise adultery, with the more vocal citizens claiming that the government shouldn't interfere in their love lives. Despite this, there was mass support for the right to bear arms and hard drug use to both remain strictly illegal. PNN Radio 1 tackled the issue this morning, with radio host Troy Aunan providing brief clarifications upon Prymont's laws and broadcasting the varied opinions of his listeners. During the breakfast show, which usually features political discussion and special guests, the controversial ATARA delegate, Julian Nordeng, made an appearance. A self-proclaimed deeply patriotic man, Nordeng was quick to criticise the Mundus Liber rankings in his uniquely interesting ways. "I mean, where do we begin?" "How about the most criticised set of legislation, the one surrounding a ban on foreigners seeking asylum in the United States?" "What about it? It's a brilliant idea, one that we need to keep! Have you seen the kind of people that are in Argis? You know, the people that we're keeping out? Ahrana is full of commie pigs. Poland-Lithuanian soldiers are killing their neighbours to spread their commie agenda. Greater Serbian politicians are killing their own people to spread their commie agenda. Argis is riddled with the worst kind of people. Do you really want these people coming into our perfectly safe country, and posing a risk to national security as the Serbian dictator tracks them down and sends suicide bombers?" "Don't you think you're slightly exaggerating there, Julian?" "Am I? Think about it, man! Everyone listening, have a good, hard think about it! Use your brains! Clearly, those Mauridivians are twisting our amazing laws to fit their own communist agenda-" "I don't think Mauridiviah is a socialist country."
      Julian Nordeng expressing his disgust at the Mundus Liber results during his interview on PR1. "Shut up, let me finish! We've been placed in the top three in both of their last surveys, right? We're an amazing country, with amazing people who follow our amazing laws. Who gives them the right to place us so low? Let's look at the results, shall we? Number one, Variota. Bollocks. That plastic surgery abortion known as Dina Diva probably sucked off every commie working for the Mundus Liber to get number one. Adaptus, number two. Bollocks again. They sucked off the commies too, but they weren't as good so they only got second. And then Mauridiviah third! The cheek of it! But that's not all, oh no no no! Ahrana... now, are you ready for this... fourth! They're communist filth! They should be dead last! And then Lysia fifth, how did that happen? The commies were probably too drunk on that water-like Lysian wine to think properly. Sayf is sixth, they're clearly up to no good, probably threatened to suicide bomb the Mundus Liber HQ if they didn't rank well, and Gallambria is seventh. Nobody even knows what they do! We should be number one, plain and simple." A spokesperson for the National Party was quick to release a covering statement, claiming that Nordeng's views were strictly his own and were not shared by the party in any way. The statement praised the unbiased work of the Mundus Liber to spread information about the countries of the world, and assured that they'd work with Nordeng to confirm his opinions and to continue his work to further improve the country. Callers to the show were quick to shun Nordeng, who eagerly fought back before the interview finished.  Nevertheless, Nordeng's comments have only further fuelled the raging fire that surrounds the Mundus Liber in the United States. While many back the decision of the institute, some continue to lambaste them, and call for their local government representatives to debate the rankings in Parliament. The National Party have confirmed that they'll continue to make the country a better place to live and visit for all, and will take on board the criticisms provided by the controversial survey.  
    • Don't mind me. I'm not casting any aspersions or anything. I don't have sole rights to it.
    • I have had a chance to look at the wiki and I am happy to say that I look forward to working with you @Rihan to put my page together once I've gotten my factbook in order.
    • "...all of Kipan is in sadness today. Much of the country has been shut down to mourn the passing of Emperor Ozu, the most enlightened and progressive of rulers in several generations. He, like his predecessor, was a benevolent ruler who truly loved his people and strived to make their lives as comfortable as possible. It was at the start of his reign that he proclaimed that all students had the opportunity to attend higher education, outright eliminating school fees. This triggered a 55% increase in the number of students in just five years. During his later years, he even took a bold step by introducing universal healthcare, covering nearly 95% of the populace. These two reforms alone have transformed Kipan. From the outside world, these actions would seem as if the Emperor was gravitating towards socialism. Ozu always firmly reject such titles, saying that it was in the best interest of the Kipanese people." "This same rationale can be applied to Ozu's deathbed declaration of abolishing his own office. NBK found a clip from an interview it had done with Emperor Ozu six years ago in which he commented on some remarks made by the Kipanese Democratic Movement. He said the following: With his death, Democracy seems all but assured at coming. At the time in which the Emperor implied in his past remarks." "The Emperor's body has been laid in state in the Imperial Palace. Members of the Kipanese population will be able to view his body for the next three days before he is buried in a private funeral that will be attended by the Chamberlain, his surviving immediate and extended family members. A spokesman for the Chamberlain would not comment if anyone of the Hundred, the group NBK is for the time being referring to as those to be convened in Ryuku, would be present." "Individuals should be alerted that demand for rail transport to Miyako from across the Metropolis and across the Islands is extremely heavy. Kipan Railways is attempting to accommodate the surge as much as possible by adding additional services."
    • With the ban of FdL, I've been rewriting my nation to be a former Limonaian colony, instead of a former Lysian colony. This has necessarily required the renaming of my nation's cities. I'm hoping in the next map update, they could be changed. Port Jacqueline would now be New Limone
      New Lyrie would now be New Sermerio
      Orville would now be Oroa.
      Zaleville would now be Umberto. Thank you!
