Hello there,

I'm Bran Astor, a Guardian of The West Pacific. I've been a part of NS for nearly 12 years, most of which has been spent making things for others to enjoy. I figured it was time for me to find a place where I can experiment, explore, and have some fun without the responsibility of dragging a region of 6,000 along with me.

My nation of Tara and Cambray is inspired by the tales of Tephi Tamar, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, and Terra Mariana.

This is an impressive community you all have built. I hope I can add something to it.

Well this community has plenty of long time veterans (and I used to think I was a veteran of some sort on NS). Welcome to the community! Excited to see what you'll bring to the table.

Do you have any RP experience? īģŋīģŋ

I would imagine in 12 years in a region as large as The West Pacific he would have some semblance of experience.

The bulk of my RP experience actually comes from the old AOL rooms dedicated to Rhy'Din and the various dice councils like UGC and UAC. I later spent time with an AIM variation called Urth's Legacy. They were character-heavy, much like D&D.

In NS, the first half of my career was spent designing and drawing in the LineArt and #Draftroom communities. Those forums were anchored by people like Hogsweat/Questers, Lamoni, Automagfreek, and The Maccabees (Haven, Gholgoth, and Greater Dienstad regions. The second half has been spent in TEP, a defunct UCR called the Kingdom of Alexandria, and most recently in TWP. The biggest obstacle in each comes from the heavy gameplay influence that believes it is fundamentally opposed to roleplay.

Here's a recent interview I gave for Escade's Gameplay Magazine. https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1232920

One of my old warships that I'm only now realizing is 10 years old... 


One last regional map that is currently in the works.

Welcome Bran the Old. Your reputation precedes you.

It feels very good to see the hard labour of a fellow content creator. I enjoyed reading your interview.

We can only wish that your experience here lives up to what you heard before.

Feel free to use this topic or Discord for those all-important first questions.
