The Democratic Republic Regional Message Board
Good Evening The Democratic Republic,
The Pangaean Union welcomes the exchange of embassies between two nations with simillar ideals.
We look forward to the changing of ambassadors and both regions supporting eachother with regional activities, helping both regions grow and stay stable.
Magnus Phoenicia is currently in your region and will act as an ambassador until we formally appoint an ambassador to represent us which will be done once our government is up and running.
It is finally time for us to make our move. Mobilising 700,000 men, with other German states providing a significant amount of force. We march into Kalisch, a town on the Prussian-Russian border. The town of Ostrowo, which is in our domain, will be used as a staging ground to start our advance into Russian land. Using 8 brigades of cavalry (40k) we plan to break through the Russian defences in the city quickly to split up any troops that stand in our way. If we are able to split defences up into two parts, we will be able to destroy them and occupy the city. Quickness is the order of the day again, moving with lightning speed to break them and end this. Before we can do any of that, however, we will need to use some of our cavalrymen to scout the city to see if there are any defences that we expect to be there. There being none would be wishful thinking for our strategists, but we hope that this campaign will be done with haste. Artillery will be there too, as to shell the defence into dust. May this war end soon, for one of us will perish in it.
Establishment of Russian Intermarium
One Night in Melbourne
Bloody rain again, thinks James as he stands under the pub veranda, smoking his cigarette. In front of him lies Sandridge, the sprawling Port of Melbourne, where he works as a docker, unloading the ships that roll into Port Philip every day carrying goods and people from across the globe. He flicks his cigarette out onto the ground, stamping it out and goes inside, where the raucous noise of workers enjoying beer and conversation after their shift was loud enough to be heard from the street. Inside, the bar was packed with people nursing pints of lager and ale, while the tables were filled with people playing cards and enjoying more substantial drinks, whiskey and gin. As James climbed the stairs, the atmosphere began to change as the noise faded away. Where most of the pub was there for pleasure, James was there for business, as a representative of the underground Victorian Dockers Union, an illegal trade union that sought better working conditions for the workers who kept Melbourne running. As he reached the top of the stairs, he saw the people he was there to meet and walked over to the table, taking a seat opposite them.
"Hello Mr. Murphy", says one of the men, "I'm John, and the man on my left is Bruce. We're representatives of Mr. Lalor."
John steps up from the booth, indicating for Bruce and James to get up as well, and begins walking back towards the stairs. Reaching the bottom, he walks over to the bar, nodding at the bartender who rings a bell. Almost immediately, a waiter opens a door, carrying two plates of food out to one of the tables. A man behind him holds the door open, and the three men walk through into the kitchen. Bewildered, James continues to follow John as he walks through, exiting through a door out the back and walking out into the rain, stopping in the muddy alley behind the pub that serves as a loading dock, currently blocked by a covered wagon. John walks around to the back and knocks on the wagon. To James' surprise, the flaps at the back open, revealing ten men and two dozen muskets and pistols. John turns to James and says, "I trust this will suffice?"
As they began to get closer to the city, word began to spread and rumours began to fly, the men were storming the Legislative Hall on Bourke Street, or the Victoria Police headquarters or Melbourne Gaol on Russell Street, or even the Bank of Australasia on Swanston Street. Crowds of onlookers, supporters and police began to line the streets, waiting for the men to cross the Yarra and enter the city. Yet the crowds gathered in vain, for the mens target was never in the city. Instead, they skirted the south bank of the Yarra and continued east, heading towards the only target worth seizing outside the city, the home of Governor LaTrobe. The men knew what they were about to do was treason, and if it failed they'd be executed. The heavy burden of the potential consequences weighed on them, and they took a moment to compose themselves in the trees outside the cottage perimeter.
"You ready, James?", asked Rob, "You're absolutely sure we should go through with this?"
Once police realised the men weren't moving on the city, they urgently sent cavalry troops to the cottage but by the time they arrived it was too late, the armed men in James' group were already positioned in the windows and the Eureka flag flew defiantly over the cottage, a symbol of solidarity amongst the working class of Victoria against the tyranny of the colonial government.
Victoria Police and the colonial militia rapidly deployed more troopers to the cottage, fearing both for the safety of the Governor and for the potential ramifications of the crisis on the government as a whole. But the movement wasn't done for the day, far from it. While the authorities were racing to deploy troops south of the river to the cottage, the Eureka miners mobilised by Bruce and John made their move on the city itself, filtering into the crowds gathered on the streets of Melbourne and spreading rumours about a tyrannical government, an incompetent Governor and an ineffective police force, agitating the crowd into a furore before directing them at their main objective, storming Melbourne Gaol and freeing the interned miners taken prisoner in the Goldfields.
Already overstretched and operating on a shoestring budget, Victoria Police was hardly ready to handle the crisis at the Governor's cottage, let alone the storming of Melbourne Gaol. With the Yarra River splitting their numbers and hindering their ability to effectively communicate and the situation rapidly escalating at the Gaol, all it took was for one trooper to open fire before the situation devolved from a riot into anarchy. And devolve it did. A shot fired from the second-story window of the Victoria Police Headquarters opposite the Melbourne Gaol killed a rioter and turned the full force of the mob away from the Gaol and onto the police. Guards of the prison were savagely beaten and left for dead as the mob swarmed across Russell Street and smashed through the thin line of police guarding the building and began ransacking the offices, going room by room and beating the defending troopers. As the mob reached the second floor, they swarmed into the room from which the shot was fired, throwing the trooper out the window to the crowd below baying for blood, dooming him to a violent end. While bloody, the storming of the two buildings was over within an hour and the will of the Victoria Police had been broken. When word reached the cottage south of the Yarra of the massacre on Russell Street and the decimation of the troopers north of the river, the remaining troopers fled, leaving the Governor in the hands of the VDU.
Advanced Machine Shops
Workshops were transformed into better-developed machine shops as more and more automated systems began to take over industries, most prominently, the manufacturing sectors. These shops were established inside the bustling cities within the western and eastern provinces as demand offered incentives for metal workers and engineers to work and contribute to the growing economy. As the Ministry of the Interior issued notices for talented craftsmen in machine tooling and published their plans of advancing workshops, tens of thousands of candidates flocked into the governmental buildings and applied for their grand project. Every paper that detailed valuable information on manufacturing techniques, workshop safety, etc, was recorded, and many craftsmen themselves were provided with the opportunity to build the upcoming engines and factories.
Plans for these machine shops were to have them stationed inside the first series of factories as these would provide quick and essential repairs and modifications to keep the engines functioning. More machine shops will be built inside other factories manufacturing mechanical parts as well. These shops were a heavy investment in due part to both the owner and the government, but it was a necessary option to get a factory operational. It was a place where the dream would happen as officials claimed, and without this single shop, it would take ten more years just to get to one of their hundreds of goals. As a result, all-metal workers, who’ve had years of experience creating parts and tools, and their shops were considered highly valuable resources, just on par with their miners. Many of them had an innate talent for what’s called subtracting manufacturing, controlled material removal, additive manufacturing, and many more as they worked and produced guns, military tools, civilian tools, etc. Knowledge of calibrations, housekeeping, recycling, inspections, and safety was a bonus for the craftsmen. And from their knowledge, the government issued all of their techniques, proficiencies, routines, habits, etc, to be taught to the new schools of engineering. Both the Ministries of the Interior and Education were collaborating on this idea to generate greater numbers of engineers, designers, and scientists; these are all for the sake of advancing the country even further than the rest of the western nations and empires.
In a few weeks, an initial number of 200 machine shops were employed with the government. They collaborated with them to figure out the best possible options to continue their line of work, and an additional 500 will be planned if everything had worked out correctly. Factory construction had included several spaces for machine shops in their architectural floor plans. And with that added space in their layouts, it resulted in cheapening the manufacturing processes.
Okay I'm out but I will back later! See ya
The Pangaean Union is delighted that both of our regions have connected on an embassy level.
We look forward to engaging and building each other up.
As part of our establishing embassies with TDR, one of the benefits is your members ability to post on our NS Roleplay thread.
Can act as an ongoing roleplay or world building. And if you want to interregional interact, just state TDR region is in an area of the Pangaean Map. And if one of you chooses a direction I.e north, east, etc, probably all state u are from that direction.
Any questions just ask. But that is one of the benefits.

Formerly known in Ye Old Wintercrest Days as the Revolutionary Daily, we've decided to rebrand and rename our regional newspaper. So with that being said, I give you:
The Winter Gazette
Correspondent of the Wintercrest Central News Agency, District of Internal Affairs - Office of Information
You're reading the VERY FIRST EDITION of the People's Constitutional Republic of Wintercrest's (hopefully) monthly regional newspaper, the Winter Gazette! Where all regional and external affairs of Wintercrest are journalized in one factbook for the People.
The Winter Gazette is not responsible for any nausea, fatigue, diarrhea, stolen newspaper copies, death or other illness which might be caused when reading the ensuing articles, nor do we refund...
A New Era
By Belungia || Tuesday, June 21, 2022 || 1825 CST
Two months is all it took. When Wintercrest officially shut down in March of 2022, there was no hope for the region. Activity was dead, the population dropping by day and the people who were keeping Wintercrest "alive" were busy in the real world. But then something was realized. A spark of hope, lit aflame. The Independent States of Allied Forces realized he was unable to abandon the region, let it sit and collect dust. So he brought together a team, consisting of Morograd, Uponda, and Piper Winter. Using their one shared brain cell, they brought forth new ideals unto the land of Wintercrest and in doing so, let go of tradition, relics of the past.
The first step was removing the role of the now former Revolutionary Mothers, Zenny and Piper Winter. The Independent States of Allied Forces when questioned about this noted that "While the role of Zenny and Piper as not only the Revolutionary Mothers but as the Founders of Wintercrest can not be understated, they are simply no longer around. This is through no fault of their own, but the question aises. Wintercrest is a People's Republic, with the power residing in the People. So why then must two people, who are not active, give their assent to all legislation that comes through the Revolutionary Peoples' Congress? This, among other things, adds yet another layer to the already complex onion that is Wintercrest's regional government. This is something that must rectified when the new Wintercrest is put into motion." With the unveiling of the newly renamed People's Constitutional Republic of Wintercrest, the ISAF says "Our motto is forever forward. This is why we must not be stuck in the past but instead adapt our region to meet the standards of today's more successful and active regions."
Already this new edition of Wintercrest is seeing a resurgence with regional population rising from the low 30s to the mid 60s in just over a week and a plethora of activities to boot. Only time well tell if Wintercrest shall befall the same fate as its predecessor, however.

Group of Humans Play Card Game Online Instead of Going Outside Like Normal People
By The Independent State Allied Force || Wednesday, June 22, 2022 || 1204 CST
Regional Leader The Independent States of Allied Forces (not to be confused with the writer of this article) hosted an online session of Cards Against Humanity in the regional Discord server, the game where people try to make the darkest jokes they can instead of socializing normally. I mean seriously, go touch some grass! The game was attended by our friends in The East Pacific and The Free Nations Region with many laughs being had. But the last laugh was by the ISAF, who defeated his opponents handily, winning two games in a row. As is typical, the victories have gone to his head, with the ISAF declaring himself "The greatest CAH player to ever grace NationStates." Somebody please knock him off his high horse...

On Thursday, June 23rd, Wintercrest proudly announced the passing of the Wintodor Accords with the region of Odrya. The Accords is a mutual defense pact between the two regions and the move comes several weeks after an official opening of gameside embassies between the two regions. Wintercrest's President of the State Council the ISAF, a citizen of both regions, said in a press conference Friday that "Odrya and Wintercrest now embark on a prosperous journey of friendship, one that we hope shall continue onwards for a long, long time."
Wintercrest TV 📺
Miles "Pudge" Halter wants to gain a deeper perspective on life, so he enrolls in boarding school. While he's there, he gains a group of loyal friends and falls in love with Alaska Young. When an unexpected tragedy strikes, the close-knit group of friends try to make sense of what they have been through. The limited series is based on the John Green novel of the same name.
Ok, listen. John Green's book is an amazing read and I highly recommend to anyone. The TV series does it justice in most regards with good script writing and great casting. Charlie Plummer (Mile "Pudge" Halter) did an excellent job of catching Pudge's awkwardness and cringe (I caught second-hand embarrassment soooo many times) and the rest of the casting was spot on. I was disappointed in some of the things they left out but creator Josh Schwartz and the episode directors more then made up for it with what they added. This is a show about substance abuse, coming-of-age, teen drama, etc. Bittersweet and beautifully performed, it's a show that will make you cringe, laugh, maybe even tear up a little. At the end, it leaves you questioning life. What does it mean? What should I do with it? How do I adapt to it?
That, my dear friends, is Looking For Alaska.
