    Hi, nice to see you! Bit of background if you want it (I know a few of the recent intro posts didn't include it, but I don't like single-sentence posts) I've been on and off NS for years, usually getting bored and letting my nations CTE before wanting back in and creating a new nation... Anywho, Roglaria is my latest attempt, and this is me introducing myself. Hi!

    The Codes are REALLY BUGGY. When copy and pasting on another forum, please make sure to re-write the IMG tags so the images show property. The CODES in this forum have a tendency to auto-convert {img}something something link{/img} to........ {img=something link}. The forum's being a smart ass and screwing things up.

A few months back, our Yggdrasil Defense Service Officer, Wordy had ceased to exist. In the meantime, our founder Goddess Relief Office temporarily took the position. Happily for everyone, Wordy returned about a month ago and reclaimed command of the YDS. The first mission after Wordy was refounded was to [b]10000 islands[/b] to secure Markanite's position of delegate after Markanite had accidentally resigned from the WA. YDS also deployed to [b]Wysteria[/b] to place [b]Hydroponic Nation[/b] back into the delegate's seat after the region was hit by an update raid. The most recently deployed mission of YDS was to defend the region of [b]Philippines[/b] after the region was being invaded by The West Pacific and other invaders, which removed the rightful delegate [b]Ariusgrad[/b]. Evidence shows that the invasion happened shortly after its founder, The Holy Kingdom of Zombies of Puan Puri Naduk, ceased to exist. Spear Danes, along with other regions including Yggdrasil had come to an agreement to defend Philippines against The West Pacific. The mission ended successfully with Ariusgrad retaking the position of delegate.

With Gahiland's CTE, the interview series came to an end. Unsatisfied with this situation, Tiku suggested that the series be continued as everyone missed it. Conversations started as many opinions are stated that how should it be done. Telegram out for participants in the region is also suggested. The person who would take over the series is also unclear. So the series is now an unaddressed issue. Until lately, [b]Imperium Germania[/b] stated in the RMB that he might be able to do with the series. Keep it up! We are looking forward to the series!
