An Official Visit

Today the Queen received a very unexpected visit from her brother, King Antonio of Cordania.  A messenger arrived only moments before  in a ceremonial carriage to bring news of the King's  plans. The lengthy but swift motorcade escorting His Majesty made it through the capital city without any hold ups.  The escorting military choppers ensured maximum safety from the air. It is reported that His Majesty and the Her Majesty met at the palace entrance and after a small reunion proceeded to the upper level.

Island Economics & You

Over the course of our 102 day existence we have been approached by many individuals from many alliances ranging in top dog to underdog sizes. All of these individuals ask the same question - who is the bat man? That's obviously a joke - but, the real question is how we run our economic system, what our programs are, and how we are able to throw around so much cash to boost our members 10+ cities while advertising 0 tax for cash and resources.  It's really simple.  Very few know of our secrets and those that ask are told this: The Island utilizes in-game mechanics to boost our own profits. Most of this comes from using the market correctly instead of just low-ball or quick-selling. Why break even when you can leave the marketplace a god? This is why we opened our Loot Lake program to the world! Utilizing bulk resources and our ancient chinese secrets, we make bank. Tie that into our other, internal, 'secret sauce' programs and you have a recipe for success.....with a side of a bunch of people asking you how you do it.  Sadly, our secrets aren't for sale and our sauce, well, its just for the family. How would you feel if I asked you for your family sauce? Next time you're in the grocery store or any public place, go up to the first person you see and say 'Can you give me some of your family sauce?" - reaction will not be positive.

So, maybe you're wondering - what have these people said to you after you turned them off? Well, we have been called names, told we were doing it wrong (then why you askin?), called whales and told we were just relying on donations, & even told we were exploiting the game! I guarantee you no exploits, cheaters have small wieners and I guarantee there are no below average size wieners on The Island. Guarantee. (its part of our app process)

Because of this exploit scare, I slid into Alex's Dms, told him to investigate us for an exploit and explained why we were asking. 

Another thing we were told was The Island is a cult and you know what, maybe it is, but its a family and we love each other, and I'm daddy, and we share each other. Sound like a cult? Possibly.

Trials by Fire part 1

[The sound of soldiers marching awakens residents on the outskirts of the capital city of Rome] "Thump! Thump! Thump!" [One boy looks through the window to see what is occurring]   "Forward!" The soldiers are returning as quickly as possible to Rome as the General received a message via an eagle stating that Rome was besieged. They hasten forth. When they arrive they find that the enemy has been repelled and have been chased back to Carthage. The City of Carthage has been a long time rival of Rome and this presented an opportunity for the Romans to wipe their rivals out completely. So they sent the army that just arrived to Annapolis so they could accompany the navy across the Mediterranean.  The Carthaginians were not at war with Rome at the time, however they were providing safe haven for Rome's enemies. What's more s that the City of Carthage was near to the mountain that Achilles was left to be tormented on.      The roman army arrived in Africa one month later after fighting countless naval battles with both pirates and the Carthaginian fleet. By the time they  arrived, Carthage was well prepared for a siege. However Rome had no intentions of waiting t out, so they called upon their ally, the Atlas Empire, to assist them n battle. The Emperor responded by sending an army under the command of Apollo to crush the Carthaginians.   Together, Rome and Atlas crushed Carthage once and for all and ended the Black Wars. During the battle, one of the soldiers heard a cry from a nearby hill and rushed to investigate. He found Achilles chained to a rock and slayed the eagle before setting Achilles free. Achilles thanked the man and sped off to find Athena, who was the only one who would truly help him.   Meanwhile the Romans together with their ally achieved a decisive victory over the Enemy.   Since Carthage was in Africa, the Romans gave it to the Emperor as a sign of good will. The Emperor made Apollo ruler over Carthage and a subject to his Empire.    Apollo spent the rest of that century away from Atlas, but always in its people's hearts.       But this was only just the Beginning.   A Easter egg for future parts.

Does Trump Fear China?

Monday, May 21st 2018; Does Trump Fear China? On Sunday, May 20th, in a surprising announcement from the Trump Administration, the United States announced it would pull back on its plan to impose tariffs on Chinese goods. This is a surprising move from the United States and the Trump Administration in particular, because for months now the Administration has been tweeting about how China's "unfair" trading practices. The Secretary of the Treasury for the United States called the hiatus "putting the trade war on hold." Many members of the Congress from the Republican party are saying that China is winning the negotiations and say that the United States is being blocked by China without tariffs China can keep stealing intellectual property & keep blocking our companies while they invest in the United States without limits of how China can do this. The abrupt reversal had even seasoned trade experts scratching their heads, with some expressing concern that the United States had weakened its position with on-again, off-again threats of a trade war. 
 

Queen Shannakay and Prince Charles

The long awaited news has finally arrived. Queen Shannakay and Prince Charles have gotten married. Much of the speculation leading up to this moment was whether or not the Queen would have married King Papi, a strong ally and trade partner of Pegasus however with the public announcement made this morning, and the photos and highlights being released to the public, such speculation has been eliminated.    Accompanying the Queen were her two sisters, Arryha and Sky along with her uncle, the former King-regent. From left to right in this picture are; the Queen's uncle, Prince Charles, Princess Arryha, the Queen, and Princess Sky. The Imperial Guard was also present, wearing their respective ceremonial outfits.[Note the sword being held upright] Prior to the wedding, the Queen had to be relocated to ensure maximal security as the nation was at war. However with all the fighting finished, Her Majesty returned to the Imperial Palace and was married less than three days later.

Pegasus News WARRRR

Citizens of Pegasus, this is not a drill.  I repeat this is not a drill. We are being attacked. Proceed to the nearest shelter immediately. The Imperial Palace has issued a full-scale red alert and the Royal Family have been relocated to a secure location. I repeat this is not a drill. We are at war with some of the NSR players. They have launched a surprise attack on us and are gaining immense ground. All military capable personnel are requested to report immediately to any army base.    Pegassian troops have began mobilizing all over the country.  The Erusean military has also been mobilized as it is a client state of Pegasus.  Reserves have been called up for both countries and the DOAB missile system has been activated as the nation enters a new phase of war.          As of right now, any personnel of the NSR and Arrgh are to be exterminated with extreme prejudice.  The Pegasus Empire formally recognizes these alliances as aggressors and will declare war in an effort to defend itself.

The War Ends

@18:00 hours Yesterday, Pegasus Forces broke through the last defensive line of Emperor Ukunada's Forces. As the troops stormed the capital there was unfortunately much loss of life as the civilians were mostly hostile towards the invaders and were thus shot on sight. The city was left in ruins as Erusean planes carried out multiple air strikes alongside the Pegasus Air Force.  As the army made their way through the rubble they were greeted by a detachment that was sent a head to secure Princess Arryha.  The princess had evidently been released by a local who wanted the war to stop and was making her way through the forest when the militants found out she was missing and began pursuing her. Pegasus Special Forces found her after she made an emergency phone call to "Command". They found her, eliminated all hostiles and transported her back safely.  With the Royal safe back home, the soldiers were ordered to rap up and return home. After a few more bombings, military control was returned to the Emperor's forces as the Pegasiian Military withdrew. 
The navy also withdrew and cargo ships which had been stopped by the blockading navy were finally allowed entry into the nation's ports.  A peace treaty was signed between Emperor Ukunaka and Queen Shannakay. This is the second peace agreement and the second war between the two countries however this is the first war which did not end in a truce.

The War is Almost Over

As Pegasus Forces push forward looking for a decisive victory, efforts to locate the princess have been maximized to the highest possibility.  Pegasus's ally, Erusea e have sent troops to assist in the rescue missions and it is estimated that she will be found within the next 12 hours. If this is the case, the war can be expected to be over within 24 hours tops as the invasion was only done to locate the princess.  A detachment from the Imperial Guard is being sent off to join the search. Reports suggest that they have a lead on the location of the princess and will be heading off at an unknown time.  
 

A Sad Story [FTE part 4]

As the battle continued, Pyrrha and those behind her managed to break through the right flank of the enemy at last. They began driving back the monsters and claiming ground with lightening speed. Meanwhile, Arryha as well began gaining ground but was slowed down by the heavy bombardment from archers mounted on a nearby hill.    Female warrior accompanying Arryha In the plains, things were much different, the enemy had driven dobby and the army back. It became clear that unless the battle on the flanks were won and those detachments joined in the centre, all would be lost. The archers in Pyrrha's guard began accelerating their rate of fire as they fired with precision and accuracy into the eyes and hearts of the creatures they were fighting. They had received a morale boost after managing to successfully break the enemy and were now simply cleaning up the left overs. At the same time, Pyrrha took her infantry and charged into the bulk of the enemy's main force from the right flank. This sudden attack managed to crush a large amount of elite units which had been focusing on the battle ahead. They were given little time to realize their mistake and were hence punished for it dearly. Arryha's detachment had also  been successful on that flank and crushed the remaining archers that had taken refuge in a cave. She then turned her attention to the enemy in the fields and also dealt a crushing blow to their army. The Queen of the darkness was not to be defeated this easily however and she made one final charge before attempting to retreat. She charged the one who had dealt a massive blow to her plans, Pyrrha. Pyrrha did not see her coming as she had her back turned towards her allies so she considered herself to be safe. Dobby on the other hand saw her charging and realized whom she was aiming for. Having made a promise to Epi to protect his daughter, Dobby intercepted the Death Queen's blow with his own body. Her weapon went clear through his chest and stopped only inches away from Pyrrha who turned around and drove her sword into the heart of the Queen thus ending her, once and for all.  However the damage had been done. As the enemy retreated, Pyrrha fell beside dobby and took his hand in hers. Dobby, with his last breath created for her, a necklace signifying her ascendancy to take over his role as Titan and told her to let him rest in peace. She closed his eyes after the last breath of air left his body and rose with the necklace still in her hand. She had changed back into her normal self and was doing her best to appear strong.  But truth be told, sh was torn apart inside. They had one victory, however though decisive it may be in truth, the losses Atlas suffered were never to be forgotten or forgiven.  The Romans arrived to a scene of utter destruction. There were dead bodies, blood, crows, flies and other remnants from the war scattered as far as the eye could see. There were only a few spots for one to walk without stepping on the dead or wounded. A scout from Pyrrha's Guard watches from above as the enemy retreats. The survivors of the battle for the victors could be seen resting after 18 hours worth of constant clashing with the enemy. One such survivor was a member of Pyrrha's guard who greeted the newcomers. She was seated in front of a pile of weapons which her comrades had gathered up from nearby bodies. All over the battlefield, different persons could be seen taking up weapons.  The battle had been won but a a terrible cost. There were many sacrifices but in the end Evil lost.  
 

Pyrrha and Dobby [FTE part 3]

6,24,48 A number that up to this date still pains the empire to its very core.  Though it marked the turning point in the war, it also was scarred with an unimaginable loss.  The battle began as both the 1st Army and the invading force charged forward. As both sides crashed into the other, crows began circling the battlefield knowing that they would soon be filled. As the fighting continued, Dobby could be seen rallying the men and leading the offense against the enemies skirmishers which were currently dealing plenty of damage to their opponents.  There were over 255,000 men of war on the field with 150000 of them coming from the darkness that seeked to devour all. The roman army was to reinforce the 1st Army before the battle however due to the ambush, they were held back and would not be able to join the battle.   Pyrrha's ability to change how she looked kept the enemy very busy as they could never truly tell whom they were fighting. Four representations of her would surround them and each looked more convincing than the rest. She attracted much of their attention and drew off the bulk of the massive army towards nearby ruins where she dominated them in battle.  The fighting became more and more intense as monsters both unseen and unheard of for thousands of years were released on the battlefield to lay waste to Atlas's army. Many men died attempting to fight or flew the creatures whilst the wizards and witches fought hard to drive them back. Further reinforcements were transported by the By-soft directly into the midst of the battle. Arryha was one who came with the detachment as she wanted to ensure her sister remained alive knowing how reckless she could be. However as soon as she arrived she was faced off with an old enemy as Morgana sent three spirit bombs at her.  The battle had now been separated into different parts with Morgana and her minions clashing against Arryha and the reinforcements on the left flank. Titan Dobby and The main bulk of the 1st Army against Cerberus and the entirety of the enemy in the middle. On the right flank was Pyrrha and her guards and the witches and wizards against all the monsters the enemy had to offer. On both flanks were ruins which made the battles there more of a tactical approach than just a simple head on, fight to the death collision. In the midst however was a large open plain and this was where the battle really took place.  The battle rages on with no end in sight.      
 

More News.

As the war rages on new weapons are being tested and one such weapon being prepped for combat is the MOAB launcher. Having being created last year, it still remains untested and has been loaded in case it will come in handy in the current war.   Also, the first trip to space has been concluded with the safe arrival of the space shuttle which landed in the ocean, less than 500 meters away from the battle-group sent to secure its occupants.  The men and women were overjoyed to return to their planet which looked far off when the had touched down on the moon earlier last month. They had spent a few days searching the planet before heading to the space station build site to begin creating the first ever off planet F.O.B. 
 

War Breaks Out Again.

It would be correct to assume by now that the nation of Pegasus seems to be engulfed in battle almost as often as Israel. However most times it is on a seemingly defensive term. This such case is not much different as it has been reported that Her Royal Highness, Princess Arryha has been ambushed by locals whilst on a diplomatic visit in The Ugaya Aniyvnwiya. Emperor Ukunaka has already made an appeal to the Imperial Palace requesting that his forces be given time to locate and secure the royal for transfer back to safety, however after weeks without any success, Queen has no other choice but to declare war in the hopes of finding her sister and the guards which were accompanying her at the time of the attack.  The Pegasus Army began its assault at 05:02 AM on October 30, 2027. The war began as Pegasan battleships approached the nation's main port. The ships were however ambushed and the enemy won a decisive victory over their opponents thought heavily outnumbered. This turned the battle landwards as the Pegasus Navy fell back to regroup. Emperor Ukunaka sent a peace offering to Queen Shannakay after that massive victory however as her sister was still being held in captivity she decided against it and began organizing a massive land invasion. Meanwhile the fleet was called back to the naval base to begin repairs as the navy would need to be at full strength  to be able to defend against a blockade.    As the war raged on, small battles occurred along the border between soldiers of both sides. The death toll was marked at 356 for Pegasus after naval battle in which 18 ships were sunk including one HMS class battleship. 
 

For the Emperor! [part 2]

As the army marches westward towards Egypt, there is a sense of uneasiness in the camp. None of my fellow comrades knew what we were about to go through. None, save the guard who came back to warn us. Life can be full of mysteries and this was just another one. This was what we were told. That the enemy was a bunch of savages that could and should be put easily back into their rightful place. It seems, the Romans, with whom I was traveling had heard something similar, for their was a calm among the legions until we arrived at the edge of the marshes.  The scouting party had returned and reported sights of enemy scouts. They had been heavily countered and managed only to escape with their lives because of the ever shifting fog looming within the marsh. The general in  command ordered that we prepare for an attack and the officers began ordering the troops into position. Moments later, everything was quiet as we waited.  And waited.  And waited. Suddenly, the marsh ahead of us gave way to a massive, army. Alas, no, it was more of a horde. Before we knew it, they had already began banging against our shields, eager to hammer apart or flesh and bones. The fighting that followed was one of massive blood and gore. At one point in time, i could not tell friend from foe. I simply pushed forward.  The enemy even had cannibalistic dogs that would aim straight for our throats. If not for our superior weaponry and our general's rallying capabilities and strategic mindset, we would have been totally overwhelmed by both numbers and morale.   We won a decisive victory that day. However we did not win the war and that is probably the biggest mistake we ever made. To assume, we had already won.

For the Emperor! [part 1]

Previously in L.O.A. [Legends of Atlas].   [Arryha and Pyrrha were walking in the woods together after just meeting each other. They were using the few hours they had to do all the catching up they needed to do when a howl from a lone wolf in the distance halted them in their tracks. Pyrrha drew her bow and arrow and knelt down. Arryha turned her back to her sister and looked the other way.  Another howl could be heard much closer, accompanied with more howls. The two sister moved slowly backward until they were back to back. They were both prepared to fight. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Although he was seen as the champion of the weak and a great protector, Hercules' personal problems started literally at birth. Elaine sent two witches to prevent the birth, but they were tricked by one of Alcmena's servants and sent to another room. Elaine then sent serpents to kill him in his cradle, but Hercules strangled them both. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aphrodite never liked the concept of covering up one's body right from the start and would only clothe herself if she was to be receiving a visitor. She rather preferred to be half naked or fully so, especially around her husband.  She had guardians appointed to her called 'Cupids' but they rarely needed to guard her against much danger as no man was cruel enough to seek out to hurt such a beautiful being. As such her true guards were the soldiers posted outside her  rooms door which were spelled by her niece Athena so they wouldn't fall in love with her.  --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Perseus was already rounding everyone up with a makeshift army from across the sea when Dionysus asked a destined question “Is there anywhere I can hide?” the rather naughty priestess accompanying him in purple toga whispered of a ship whom they wouldn’t dare hinder. It was there he slept, the priestess a few party goers and his cupbearer [The ex-messenger] keeping him company. Thus Dionysus went on a wine encouraged voyage and to his brother’s dismay he’d participate in a war. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Atlas, a city of wonders, pleasures, riches and might. A city with impregnable walls, gates and civil rights. It is home to every living being that acknowledges the rule of the Titans. Titans they said once upon a time. Now, who are Titans? What are Titans? Where are the Titans if ever they existed? Well, the answer is simple. Look in the palace, in the centre of the world's most thriving region and you will find them. For they really do rule the world!   For the Emperor! June 944 BT [same as B.C.] The city is silent. Though the city stretches from the steps of present day China to the shores of the Mediterranean, all is quiet with the only sounds coming from the rushing of feet. The sounds of war. Just thinking about that day makes my blood run cold. It is the day that the creatures of the underworld attacked.  It all started as a normal week. At least, that's how it is remembered. The night's watch had just finished their shifts when a horn was heard. I was at the West Gate that day, the one facing Egypt and Rome. We had known that the people in these regions were overthrown by some foreign force but as we were further east we never had any reason to get involved.  Or so we thought. A guardsman from our border with Egypt came as if with the wind. He had the look of one who had stared death in its face and lived to tell the tale. The gates opened to let him in and slammed shut as soon as he was within the city. He only gave us a brief explanation before speeding off on his horse towards the palace. The little he provided us with however was more than enough. The city guards immediately began blowing the war horns. All over the city, war beacons lit up to alert the entire region that war was coming.  As the reality of the situation struck the humans, they began to panic. The nights guard had to be recalled into active duty to begin patrolling the city and ensuring everyone stayed in doors. The First Army [1st] marched through the west gate as the day came to an end with Pyrrha and Dobby at its head. Pyrrha's Elite Guard could also be seen marching with the group. With one Titan gone, the rest were left with ensuring the continuation of Atlas.  Our allies, the roman saw the lit beacons and sent a legion to aid us even though they were fighting a war themselves. The legion spent a night at the West Gate before marching off to meet up with the First Army. I was sent with them.

P4 Summit

The Government structure has been released to the public today. This comes just moments before the annual P4 Summit during which Pegasus's Allies and the Queen along with her chief officials will meet to discuss matters concerning the different states. It is believed that during this year's summit, the issue of refugees will be addressed. It is well known that previously, the other heads of States had demanded that Pegasus accept refugees from other nations other than Erusea however this command/request was never carried out. In fact, the Queen ordered that the army mobilize and maximize border patrols. That year saw the number of immigrants to Pegasus fall by 97% and it continued declining until another summit was held to determine what must be done.  The capital city will host the P4 Summit this year and as such, security around the centre of the city should be expected to be very secure. Traffic will also be terrible if you are heading towards the centre of the city. It is therefore advised that on that day/for that week, if any individual wishes to reach the centre of the city, the quickest way would be to walk as traffic is expected to reach extremes.

Final draft of the new government system is to be completed today.

Today the people of Pegasus, more specifically, their respective representatives voted on a new system of government at the Citadel earlier this morning. The new system will give citizens a complete outline of the government however will not actually change the roles of the persons currently in power. This change does not however affect the Queen nor the Imperial Staff. A full outline will soon be made public as to the changes made.

The First Mission to Space

04/03/2018   Today marks the first manned mission to space ever to be done by the Kingdom of Pegasus.    In a remarkable turn of events, the first space shuttle piloted by humans within the shuttle itself, lifted off from the Markham Space Complex. At 8:00 a.m. this morning, it was officially announced that this historical feat was finally passed by her majesty and that the mission would be under-way by evening. There were fifteen engineers on board plus the four pilots.  They will begin the creation of the Pegasus Space Station which will orbit Earth.     There was much celebration as the astronauts were escorted by the police down the streets of Markham for their final appearance before heading off on the short twelve hour trip to space.

Episode 1

The front entrance to the Imperial Palace in Pegasus. The Kingdom of Pegasus Never Forget! Never Surrender! Never Forgive!   Pegasus News Agency | Documentary | September 20, 2026     Modern day Pegasus was first known as the Kingdom of Tver located near Muscovy in the year 1444. Dmitry was the monarch of the small nation. Dmitry, even though he had a small army at the time, always looked at his neighbors around him to see which one would be an easy and profitable conquest for he wanted to reach the sea as quickly as possible so he could form a navy. The first opportunity came when the Muscovites sent a warning to Tver stating that should Tver declare war on any other nation, Muscovy would declare war on Tver. King Dmitry took this as an offense and so did his people. Even though Muscovy was much bigger than Tver, there was a public outcry for war and by September 1445, Tver declared war on Muscovy. Through the use of great strategy and the hiring of mercenaries, Tver defeated Muscovy and released their vassals. Tver also gained the region of Rzhev. Less than a month later, Tverian troops invaded Muscovy’s previous vassal, Yaroslavl, and made it a vassal of their own. This was to prove a vital move for future battles as this vassal became a major ally to their overlord and would, in the future, be the ones who break the siege on Tver’s capital city. Now that he had secured more land, Dmitry began expanding his trade with the Lithuanians. They were at first hesitant as Tver did not share a border with them but after the Tver – Muscovy war, the capture and annexation of Rzhev had put the two in direct contact with each other. With the truce with Muscovy still active, Dmitry turned his attention towards reaching the sea. One of his advisors showed him that there was a very small country to the north of Lithuania that would grant him access to the sea. However another advisor pointed out that there was no way to reach it without having to pass through foreign lands. The shortest diplomatic route would be through Lithuania but they would never allow Tverian troops to march past there capital at such a close range. In fact, the shortest route would have taken Dmitry’s army right to the outskirts of Vilna. To ensure that the Lithuanians would not feel threatened, Dmitry arranged a marriage between the princess of Lithuania and his grandson. As they were each just 16yrs old, it meant that such a marriage would provide a long lasting bond between the two nations. The Lithuanians accepted the offer as it ensured them safety from invasion and the 1st Tverian army began marching towards Riga. In the early months of 1447, Tver finished fabricating a claim on Riga and declared war. By March, the same year, over 30,000 troops besieged Riga making it the largest operation carried out by Tver up to that date. The government of Riga surrendered a month later and Riga was annexed by Tver. At the same time, the Tverian government officially gave Rzhev and its citizen’s full citizenship and recognized it as a core province. This increased regional stability for a time. Peace followed and for the next few years, Dmitry focused on rebuilding his nation, technological advancements and the upgrading of his military. However, by the mid 1450’s Dmitry had once again turned his attention to reaching the sea. Even though Riga was located at the Baltic Sea, the distance between it and the actual Tverian border prevented it from becoming a Core state which was vital to begin being able to build a navy. Thus the Tver – Novgorod wars began. The first war saw victory for Dmitry as he gained Kholm however the real victory over Novgorod did not come until the second Tver – Novgorod war. Unfortunately, Dmitry did not live to see this victory and it was his son, Dmitry II who oversaw the war. By 1476, Tver controlled all of Novgorod’s provinces with the exception of their capital. Tver also annexed all of Finland, most of the Livonian Order and had even, by using the royal marriage between Tver and Lithuania, claimed the Lithuanian throne, invaded Lithuania and capture the capital thus making Lithuania a vassal of Tver. This made the amount of land directly owned or belonging to a vassal, by Tver expand massively.
