How i can declare war on someone.
you can role-play it out with someone, but there is no formal way, or in-game way to actually do it. No button to press, no keys to type, just role-play
Not a bad idea
Do I just have to wait for my influence to accumulate in order for my influence to say "Auxiliary"?
I don’t really know…I guess…
(this is Fortisbellator’s rp puppet so I am denouncing myself)
I HATE YOU!!!
Stop being a little Nazi Germany, because you’re acting like one! Conscription? OUTRAGEOUS! Euthanasia? Sounds like the Holocaust to me! “Heil”? Who’s your next leader, Hitler? Your Prussian/German-based stuff is gonna turn your nation upside down.
Shame on you, Neo-Nazi. FOURTH R**CH!
How i could role-play
This is not at all appropriate discourse for the RMB. If you have information that we should know in an administrative capacity over this region, you can telegram any Warden-Commander or higher, but shouting accusations on the message board is hot garbage that accomplishes nothing.
Guardians get missions that move hours before the region updates, but for more serious defender operations, there is often only a few seconds of possible reaction time to stop a region from getting raided, or to secure its liberation for its native inhabitants. It is not possible to coordinate over an RMB or telegram when the timing is so precise. So we coordinate in a unified defender server where we can coordinate in real time.
Alright. Do you play the endorsement game then?
I have no idea what you're referring to.
Like what’s happening in Layem—you endorse the certain people until the region is taken over.
There's also a dispatch that BT wrote up years ago here that talks about how military gameplay works. It's a bit dusty, but still largely accurate.
What is Raiding?
Raiding is when a group of nations move to a region to elect a delegate (giving control of that region over to that player), to capture or destroy the region.
What is Defending?
Defending is when a group of nations move to a region to either boost a native nation and/or delegate’s endorsement count or to elect a delegate of their own (giving control of that region over to that player), to protect the region from a raid, restore the region from a previous raid, and/or to preserve said region's original native community and/or history.
Where do the Grey Wardens Fit On this Spectrum?
The Grey Wardens primarily operate is a defender organization in that we believe that invading regions is wrong and look to prevent invaders from being successful. We take this a step further than most other defenders as we are willing to invade invader regions to give them a taste of their own medicine.
What Can a Delegate Do to a Region?
In many regions, a delegate cannot do anything to harm the region. If the region's founder still exists, they can set the delegacy role to "non-executive", so the delegate has no access to border control, appearance, or embassies, the tools that raiders usually use to deface a region. Even if the founder makes the delegacy "executive", so the delegate can do all these things, the founder always has supreme power. They can reverse any changes a raider makes.
The real danger comes when the founder has ceased to exist (or in really old regions made before founders existed). In these regions, the delegacy becomes automatically executive, so they can do whatever they want - and there's no founder around to stop them.
Provided that the delegate is has access to the regional controls, the delegate can alter and/or utilize the following:
• The World Factbook Entry (WFE)
In order to partake in military gameplay, you will have to have to be a member of the World Assembly
What is the World Assembly
The World Assembly (WA) is a large legislative body that any nation can participate in and become a member of. The WA is made up of two chambers: The General Assembly and The Security Council. World Assembly Members are open to actively vote and participate in both chambers, but are not required to do so. Legislation passed by the body affects all of its member nations.
Councils and Proposals
The General Assembly is based around Role Play, and may affect your nation stats very slightly. The Security Council can pass three types of proposals: Commendations, Condemnations, and Liberations. A Commendation and Condemnation is a badge that appears on a region or nation's page as a way of recognizing the deeds by said nation or region (to encourage or discourage their actions), and a Liberation is a badge that is placed to remove a delegate-imposed password on a region and block the delegate from making another one. This does not affect a founder’s ability to password a region, though, and cannot be imposed upon individual nations. Security Council Liberations do not evict delegates or occupying forces.
Choosing a nation
If you wish to use your World Assembly nation for defending or raiding, without needing to leave the region you reside in, it is highly recommended that you log out and create a separate nation to join the World Assembly. World Assembly nations are also used for combat, and need to travel often, so making a secondary nation your World Assembly nation is typically a good idea if this is what you are interested in. If you are not interested in this, however, regions may ask that you endorse a specific nation or nation(s) as elected World Assembly delegates.
Joining the World Assembly
To join the World Assembly, go to your settings and enter in an email address that you check regularly . Next, go to the World Assembly page and you'll see a button near the top of the page that says "Apply to Join". You'll then be sent a confirmation email.
This email should arrive instantly. If it does not, check your spam folder, it is usually found in there. Be sure to remove the email from the spam folder if you want your email provider to recognize that emails from NS aren't spam.
Click the link inside the email, and you'll automatically be logged in and accepted into the World Assembly! You can now vote on resolutions, endorse other nations, and move your World Assembly nation as your military puppet! Note that it is against the rules to have more than one nation in the World Assembly at a time; the game may eject you from the World Assembly and even ban you from it if you try to have more than one nation with membership at the same time. You can have as many nations as you want and as many applications and confirmation emails for as many nations as you want, but only one can be in the WA at a time. You must resign from that nation to transfer membership to another nation if you wish to change it. In order to help prevent you from accidentally getting a second WA nation, you should use the same email address for every nation you make. The game has a built in safety mechanism that will prevent you from breaking the rules if you follow that procedure.
Endorsing a nation
To endorse a nation, you must both be in the World Assembly and in the same region. Simply scroll to the bottom of that nation's nation page, and click the button at the bottom that says "Endorse NationName". You have then successfully endorsed a nation! You can also see who has endorsed you at the bottom of your own nation page.
How does a Nation Become Delegate of a Region?
To become delegate, you must have the most World Assembly endorsements in the region when it "updates".
What are Updates?
There are currently two updates each day.
Each update is known as the following:
What Happens During an Update?
The following is a list of all that takes place during the update:
*Major Update only
How Does Update Work?
Over the course of an update each region updates, one by one, although less than a second after each other. During this time, nations are updated within the region.
During these times, the endorsements are also recounted within the region. The nation in the region with the most World Assembly endorsements at this time becomes the region’s delegate. Each region updates at a specific time within this time frame, and can only update once per update. Likewise, each nation can only update once. Therefore, once a nation updates, it can no longer be used during the course of that update. Once a region updates, it cannot be updated again until the next update. If you move to a region that has already updated before your nation updates, and leave it there until the end of the update, your nation will not be updated, and none of the effects of update will occur to your nation.
Do I Have to Be Online During Update in Order to Participate in Operations?
You do not. Some invasions start to take place in the time between updates giving us more time to mount defenses. Many operations also take place over the course of several or many updates. During such operations, you will be asked to reinforce our ongoing effort.
Being available does have its advantages though. You will have the greatest amount of opportunities to participate in missions as well as an increased opportunity to lead missions. Many invasions these days take place during the course of update.
Where do I Go to Receive Deployment Orders?
Missions will be posted in the Warden Barracks, which is located on our discord server. Missions will be posted as pins in said channel. Make sure to check them regularly, as they have a habit of changing. The pinned post will contain the information you need as a Warden to take part of the operation. Make sure to post a reply, letting us know that you have deployed including which nation you're currently using. Once an operation is over, a Commander will notify Wardens. You may leave the region at that time.
Layem is technically already taken over as of about an hour ago, but we're building influence at this point to destroy the region since it's fascist and its membership has a history of doing some rather unfortunate things.
Hey guys sorry if i just message here i been busy these past few days...
Chapter 2: A Crack through the looking glass.
If you told the Prime President of the Filipino Union, Tenchonoblade Minecraft gonna mysteriously disappeared without an trace to it's citizens or closest friends or just an random person passing by. They would just burst out laughing at you're face as they shrugged you off as an nutjob on the loose. And shrugged off your claims as they continue to do their normal lives and errands. But not today...
It was supposed to be just like an normal day.
"What's am i supposed to say to Dad?" Wilbur told himself and let out a deep and loud sigh afterwards as he continue to walked towards.
"What's you're going to say to me Wilbur?"An a sudden voice spoken behind Wilbur's back startling him. And halting his actions there Wilbur's eyes widen in horror as his eyes met another deep blue eyes, Blond messy hairline spring over his buckethat. Philza Minecraft his dad..
"Mate, i am waiting what are you gonna tell me?" Philza asked in slightly concern tone.His brow raise in confusion.
"Right, Dad have heard anything about Techno this past morning?" Wilbur asked, biting his cheeks and tongue inside.
"Mh.. No, I haven't since Tubbo seems pretty busy to stop for a chat about Techno's schedule today what's the matter mate?" Philza spoken softly.
"We'll you se-" Wilbur's answer is being interrupted by an shuffling footsteps echoing on the hallways. Wilbur and Philza's eyes turned focus on the group of politicans walking towards them in an frantic manner.
"Mister Minecraft oh thank the Prime we found you." an senator spoken to them. Breathing heavily as the senator halted infront of them.
"Have you seen Prime President Tehno?" The senator asked in an scared manner.
"Mh, nope i have not" Philza replied shortly.
"Oh dear Prime, Mister Minecraft please listen to me very carefully and please don't be shocked on what we gonna told you alright?" An JSS Agent spoken in an serious manner.
"The President, along with it's cabinet schedule to went an meeting, have mysteriously disappear in thin air." The JSS Agent exclaimed
Philza's eyebrows raise in confusion as he blink once or twice.
"I'm sorry, What do you say again?" Philza ask.
"The President and it's Cabinet members sir. They all disappeared without an trace." The JSS Agent explained nervously, quiet murmurs echoed through the other politicans hearing their conversation.
Philza felt he's gonna be sick, like his shoes nailed through the ground, as the voice of the JSS Echoed through his head, No his thoughts screams loudly, at his mind.
How do I declare war
If you mean like gameplay then that's impossible to do, however if you are roleplaying then yeah you can do that.
New Guardian Mission
Move a World Assembly nation to: Confederacy of Layem
What is a Guardian?
Being a Guardian is for warriors who are unable to engage the Darkspawn on the frontlines and yet are still willing and eager to fight the raider blight.
For those busy during the two game update times, you can still conduct military operations and make a difference as a Guardian. Guardians choose to guard and cleanse the regions of NationStates from the Darkspawn in-between update times with a more flexible schedule. Guardians move into target regions during the 12-hour windows between game updates and provide vital WA endorsement support to their leading officers, as well as conducting detags and off update defenses.
Guardian mission updates are found on the RMB (Regional Message Board) and World Factbook Entry for Guardian missions which are updated every 12 hours. There are also notifications given on Discord, if you are able to join.
You don't need to sign up or register anywhere, either on NationStates, on Discord, or the forum. Just start participating by following this guide! This guide will remain pinned in our region to serve as a handbook whenever you need it.
How to Participate:
We call your current nation in The Order of the Grey Wardens your "main nation". For Guardian missions, you will need another nation, which is called a "puppet nation". You can name this nation whatever you want when you create it. To get your puppet nation setup, follow these steps:
1) If your main nation is admitted to the World Assembly, resign now.
Total mission counts and ranks are calculated at the end of each month by Guardian leadership, typically pinned on the main region page when published.
There may be times where the format of a Guardian mission changes, depending on the needs or goals of the mission. It's important to check your telegrams on your Guardian nation in case you receive special instructions, but here are some you might encounter generally:
Being a Guardian offers quick promotions based on the number of missions you complete and further leadership opportunities. Guardian missions and various Guardian tasks are managed by those who hold the following ranks:
Even when not in leadership, Guardians can earn titled ranks that reflect their experience and hard-earned effort against the raider blight. These ranks are calculated by leadership at the end of each month, as found in the Guardian mission log:
Welp The siege of Layem is wrapping up. Not like they stood much of a chance.C
