A Word from the Monarch

Wintreath Unites to Fight Terrorist Scum! the first official roleplay put together by our revived roleplaying guild, the Rollspelskra!

The History Behind Rollspelskra
Rollspelskra is the brainchild of Thane of Roleplay Svipjoth, who ran on reviving the guild in the December 2021 Thane elections. Parts of that platform were controversial at the time, especially a provision that would move RP from the NationStates RMB to Wintreath's off-site forums. Svipjoth and others in favor argued that the move would allow for RPs to be better organized and moderated, while those opposed argued that some on the RMB wouldn't be able to join the forums and others preferred the simplicity of the RMB. The discussion was so heated that the entire idea was initially shelved, but a recent incident where players sabotaged a peaceful RP with spies and snipers led to a change of hearts, paving the way for Rollspelskra to be established.

The conclusion of the "peaceful" RP that paved the way for Rollspelskra

What is Rollspelskra, Exactly?
Once in, members have access to monthly official RPs with themes suggested and voted on by members. The terrorist incident RP mentioned at the start of this article is the first official RP, tasking nations to respond to a terrorist attack on every nation's capital city. Members can also create and join other members-only RPs, like the silly "Tooth Fairy Incident" RP where players investigate just what's going on with all those missing teeth. In its first week, the guild is going strong with 13 members, 2 RPs, and nearly 70 posts made so far!

The Welcome Wagon
Aloha to our new and returning Citizens!

Since our last edition, we've had a number of new and returning Citizens!
  • First off, welcome to Eliza (Bird State), who found Wintreath after spending a few years in the British-themed regions. She’s a lover of all birds and a mother of two (including a newborn! Congratulations!), and has become a familiar face on Discord.

  • Also welcome to Thejoker (New Kasztan), who has already introduced themselves as part of our LGBTQ+ community, joined Rollspelskra, and became involved with the NationStates RMB and Tooth Fairy Incident RP.

  • Welcome to Joslisonoria, who became a Citizen to better communicate with the community and has become a familiar face on the NationStates RMB. They also like to draw, roleplay, and make maps, making their arrival in Wintreath quite timely!

  • Welcome to Sprinkles257 (Sugarica), who has become probably our most active new member across the forums, Discord, and RMB and is becoming known as a particularly friendly and wholesome person.

  • Last but certainly not least, welcome back to Chanku (Terra cinis tonitrua et justitia), Wintreath’s first original native, who returns home after a year-long absence following the dissolution of the Underhusen, an institution she adamantly supported. Chanku’s return continues a trend of returning Wintreans that has seen our community become whole again, and it is awesome to have her back with us!

I always think we have great people become Citizens, but I must say I think we have a particularly wonderful group of new and returning Citizens this time around! Welcome again to each of you!

If you would like to become a Citizen of Wintreath, all you have to do is join our off-site forum and then Linkfill out this form. Citizens gain full rights under our regional constitution, gain access to Citizen-only areas of the forums and Discord, and can participate in our government from our all-Citizen assembly to the Cabinet that runs the day-to-do operations of Wintreath.
