    Looking Deep! TKR

    If you can't tell, the sarcasm is working. I've never been a member but TKR has a strong community and they certainly aren't the worst protectorate The Syndicate has ever taken on by a longshot.

    Finding all the achievements.

    The wiki did a good job of letting me know that the Fraggle Approved achievement is the only one that really requires any actual work to accomplish.

    Live Today, Love Tomorrow

    My former wife and 2 year old son... what? He's 35 now?! My former, now remarried and deceased wife and 35 year old son as well as his 2 daughters and 28 grandchildren have asked me this question several-ish times over the last decade and none of them understand this meme:

    This is a brave new world we're living in

    I'm not gonna hold my breath on that one.
  7. I think it is unfair of you to blame Partisan - a well-renowned TGH gov member - for all of this unfortunate confusion that is resulting from the civil unrest that is currently affecting all of the fraggle folk.

    The most difficult aspect of whaling nowadays is finding a reliable boat. They don't make them like they used to.

    What Makes A Good Alliance?

    I am biased but: IA first. If you can't get nations to join, learn, or interact you're dead. Econ second: people like growing, keeps them invested and clicking. If they click wrong scold them, if they keep clicking wrong that's what rebuild thresholds are for. MilCom third: If they don't exist, can't learn or interact, and don't know how to click properly you're dead. If IA and Econ held up their end you're in a good position to thrash some shit. FA last: If your people exist, are learning and interacting and have enough discipline to click properly (or at least accept the consequences when they don't) you're MilCom is probably... at least... okay. If they are interacting superbly well you've probably adopted a culture and principles and interests, too. So it's now FAs responsibility to not frick up all that great momentum and leverage it into as engaging, fun, and not disappointing circumstances as possible. Of course, if 1/4 of these doesn't hold up their end of the bargain you will have some serious problems but there are models for succeeding at different capacities. Depending on your metrics for "success".

    Peace Terms.

    I like this idea a lot. Makes both resistance and beige matter beyond simply existing to be exploited and offers more options for strategy. Balancing it properly is the real challenge.

    When the board actually approves. God damn all this stifling bureaucracy.

    I guess this would be a very convenient time for me to go inactive, huh? As if you could ever convince me to implode harder than I'm naturally inclined to anyway. 😛

    As Officer of Strategic Planning for the Syndicate, without confirming this with the rest of the Board of Executives at all, I'd like to say that whomever posts the 1,000th reply to this thread can consider that a diplomatic obligation from the Syndicate to declare war upon them, and I can conclusively assure everyone that nothing bad will come of this per our Charter.

    >nebulous wording He said, omitting the details of the greater overall conversation that took place surrounding the decision and my clearly expressed intent to keep the war limited on our part and the effort I put into building a legitimate consensus on the expressed goal: which at the time was a strike at the upper tier consolidation. >tacit approval That implies tacit responsibility. If you had expressed your waffling conviction and conflicts of interest to me before I was committed to the war effort I would've never declared in the first place. I told you straight up it would be suicide if you declared. So don't act like your ass is all chapped now because I wasn't straight with you from the onset. I'm not the one who had to be so nebulous and vague about my goals that I can only refer to my commitment as "tacit approval" to maintain a shred of integrity.
