    Growing Unrest

    Thousands have taken to the streets to protest against what some have claimed to be an 'alarming' rate of reforms undertaken by the new government. An unlikely and most likely temporary alliance between conservatives, religious fundamentalists and elements of the green movement has united under the common cause of stopping or reversing actions made by the government. While divided on issues such as polygamy and military spending, the one thing all these protestors have in common is their disapproval of genetic engineering. In response to the recent bill ordering an investigation into human genetic engineering, protesters have threatened further actions if a future bill legalises it. Some have even suggested insurrection. "A nation which treats its citizens as customisable items doesn't deserve to exist. We'll ensure, by all means necessary, and to our dying breaths, that such a bill doesn't pass. There'll be no compromise." says Alex Erikson, leader of the Genetic Heritage Foundation, an extremist anti-GM group. Members of the USNE government have proposed a live and televised discussion about such issues, stating that 'it is important for all views to be considered'. While some demonstrators have slammed the proposition as an obvious trap, some of the organisers of the protests have agreed to appear on Q&A, the show in question.
  3. Today
  4. It had been time to officially establish contact with the British Internationale, and see where each other stood. Whether they would be met with hostility, or peace, would be unknown. Before now, the Scottish people had been more or less content with their "occupation," only speaking out when asked. If a movement was to begin, they first had to establish if the British Internationale was going to open up political talks, or be an enemy. The new Queen couldn't just open up with force or aggression, the vast majority of their people were under British Rule, and in doing so may result in harm to the Scottish people. The new Queen has loose ties to the Scottish nobility of old, but she did not force herself into the position. With the world taking its current course, it was proposed an independence should be tried for once again. She is young and inexperienced, but trying to be cordial and keep proper in the face of a massive empire. With little in the way of technology, or the ability to get technical communications to the British Internationale, they sent a messenger via military patrol boat. An old design, whose weaponry would be no match for a single British military vessel and posing no threat, they hoped they would be met with kindness, and not the firm hand of the British Navy. The military vessel would be waving two flags; their national Scottish flag, and a ceremonial white flag. [OOC: I would like it if we could roleplay together, Rimski. Please PM me if you see this and have questions :)]

    Until it turns out they weren't and I have the videographic evidence. @OP Just a note about the game. A former friend told me this was the most toxic game he's ever played, and that's how the game is designed, to be honest. From the very beginning, the game is supposed to be about beating other people's teeth in. The speed of combat engagements mean that it's very hard to win a war when you're losing, and the most effective strategy early on is to raid inactive or, more upsettingly, weaker nations. The loot mechanic in game encourages incessant warfare, with the initial stage often contentious, but with the later stages approximating a glorified raid. I think in other games you have a dynamic between "moralists" and raiders. In this game, the concept of moralist barely exists. The last people who tried to stomp out lower-tier raiders also were probably attempting to deliberately get themselves rolled as well, and the "moralist" factor is not a "cultural" thing, but rather a structural thing; raiding, warfare, etc, these are all part of the game. I recall a rather "carebear" alliance that migrated from a more sedate game. They got rolled repeatedly, then their descendant ended up being populated in part by aggressive and offensive !@#$. And they are probably winning as a result.

    Even the bastard lovechild of Partisan, Roq, Ripper, Nizam, Buor, Pre and Roz all rolled into one couldn't bring world peace despite all that influence, so obviously you're off to a flying start. Also I call dibs on tCW's spot.

    Why Trump Will Not Be President in 2018

    I'm just going to step in here and say that the recent release of court documents related to Michael Cohen's indictment from federal prosecutors put Trump under criminal charges of campaign finance fraud. For those of you who don't know a lick of US law, the burden of proof in a criminal case is much higher than it is for a civil case; in a criminal case, you have to be without a doubt. In civil cases, only the consideration of a higher likelihood. Translation: the fact that Cohen is going to jail shows that prosecutors have overwhelming evidence that Trump violated those laws. Trump is going to jail, or he's going to initiate a constitutional crisis where a sitting president looks to pardon himself. There is even speculation that Trump will resign 10 minutes before he leaves office and have Pence pardon him. If Trump runs in 2020, he'll have to do it behind bars or on the ashes of the American republic. The irony of all this is that Trump didn't need to pay hush payments to his mistresses. If Trump fricked a supporter's wife, that supporter would have still voted for him. That's how degenerate and broken Trump supporters are, they just don't care. Whatever the case, the Republican party is now the party of Trump. If Trump doesn't run in 2020, nobody is going to show up at the polls for Jeb Bush.

    I certainly don't see how he's claiming to have done 8bn damage, or is that TKR doing that much damage?

    Just checking out on what the fuss was all about and my results is that... it looks bare and nothing is talking about peace or anything, just raiders and that was it. Let's just get it straight, peace isn't going to happen right now. I think some alliances on both sides are waiting/looking for Vacation Mode nations to blast away and trying to negotiate deals before it continuously drags on. But still, for now that my thoughts and predictions would say before or after Christmas or New years that peace would show up. But for now, will have to wait and see on how it'll end.
