Tiki: Woonsocket made me laugh a lot but I can not remember 1 time only. I got little bit upset when people accused that I am a invader. HS: Do you have anyone that you'd consider like a mentor to you in NS? Why and what did they do for you? Tiki: Yes Woonsocket When I got a question always I tell him also he told me how I better do TITO missions and such. HS: Do you have any goals in NS that you're working towards that you haven't accomplished yet? Tiki: I wish I will get 100 battle stars but it is little bit slow now because I am using my phone for posting and it is harder to do missions on my phone. Thanks all for reading! Until next month! -HumanSanity and THX1138, Senator and Deputy Senator for Blue Canaria North, your 10KI Update staff

    Miscellaneous Stuff from the 10000 Islands

    10000 Islands' embassy with Valhalla has been officially classified under "historical status," meaning that while we will continue to have an embassy on NationStates, we will no longer assign an emissary nor continue active diplomatic efforts. Thus, I am no longer serving as Emissary to Valhalla. If activity picks up again, we look forward to restoring a full embassy. This change does not affect our relationship with Yggdrasil.
