    Yggdrasil's Relationship with 10000 islands/ TITO

    The treaty above has been superseded by the following:

    Miscellaneous Stuff from the 10000 Islands

    So pleased to confirm our new treaty between our two regions!: http://www.half-hp.net/yggforums/index.php?/topic/904-yggdrasils-relationship-with-10000-islands-tito/&do=findComment&comment=55307 http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/36451/treaty-announcement

    Miscellaneous Stuff from the 10000 Islands

    For Immediate Release In the long history of the 10000 Islands we have defended many regions from outside occupations, many of those defenses consisting of User Created Regions but some consisting of Game Created Regions. We have always stood as proponents of native rights, the right to sovereignty and the right for them to run their regions the way they desire without outside interferences. From the deployment of our military to The North Pacific in 2004 to the deployment of our military to Lazarus in 2015, we have stood against the aggressive expansion of the New Pacific Order (NPO) into other Game Created Regions. The Council of Nine, in this instance, feels that a statement about current events within the Gameplay sphere is necessary to establish our stance upon the NPO and their apparent operations in other regions. While no military deployment of TITO against the NPO is forthcoming, the Council of Nine would like to publicly denounce the NPO and their operations to undermine and destabilize other Game Created Regions throughout NS. Such actions taken against lawful governments are not to be tolerated, and is a betrayal of the trust bestowed in the NPO after their apologies for other such past operations. These egregious acts over the last couple of years not only hurt the regions the NPO targeted, but also hurt relations between their targets and regions those targets were friendly with. Due to NPO interference in Lazarus in 2017 which destabilized the region and ultimately lead to LWU couping the region for their own interests the 10000 Islands lost relations with a region we were friendly with, and that act alone is enough to poison the NPO in the eyes of the Council of Nine. Therefore, with the utmost sincerity, the Council of Nine and the 10000 Islands condemns the New Pacific Order and their actions within TNP, Osiris, Lazarus, and TSP. While we do not have diplomatic relations with the New Pacific Order at this time, we can state that until further notice The Pacific will not have diplomatic relations with 10000 Islands nor will they have military assistance from TITO. 10000 Islands is adopting a neutral stance within the current war being waged upon both sides, as we will work with neither side to help them in their confrontation.

I hope the new office finds you well! - Fantasy Football XKI is here, hosted by the Lou Chance Gambling. Come one, come all! - A landmark decision to open a new NSGP forum thread was passed this month by the Council of Nine. - Embassies were established with the region of Heart (our very own Alemputo brought this request forward) and with Conch Kingdom. An embassy with Carolingia was rejected by the Council. - Taco Island: ~ What do you say to interrupt a conversation? I chime in with some of these jewels. ~ The Taco Island Board of Directors has been presented with the following proposals. ~ The Taco Island Technical Support is back! August's Special Feature: The Answer to Life, Universe and Taco Island - The Mayor This month, we start a two part interview with the ever busy mayor of Taco Island, Ater Nox. His eternal majesty, Lord of the Taco and Cream Cheese filling, among other things, graciously offered some of his time to answer a few questions for us. Take a look: Kozmix: Thank you for your time. So, Mr. Mayor, what is it like, now that you have made it? What is the life of a Taco Island Mayor like? Ater Nox: First of all, let me point out that I didn't personally make 'it', the construction of 'it' was outsourced to independent contractors and so any damages or injuries caused by 'it' is in no way my fault. Secondly, my management of 'it' ensured the project came in only mostly over budget and behind schedule, ensuring Taco Islanders will not be pay quite as extensive an 'it' tax that they may have. You're all welcome. Finally, 'it' is very good, which is a reflection of my own skills, expertise and genius. The life of a Taco Island Mayor is very hard, and I can say that with a completely straight face. Every day I have to work incredibly long hours to send bribes, receive bribes, solicite bribes, ignore the requests of my constituents, blackmail Council of Nine members, institute unfair laws, transfer money from the treasury to my secret offshore accounts, ignore the demands of my constituents, slander my political opponents, spread rumours about people I don't like, laugh at poor people, donate official funds to my fake chairty, cover up my more heinous crimes and that's just on one of the quieter days. I know it must be hard for you to imagine, but some days I even need to get out of bed before noon in service of Taco Island. I truly am a man of the people after all. Kozmix: That sounds like a lot of busy work, Mr. Mayor. So, tell us more about Taco Island, and how Mayor Ater Nox, the first of his name, has been different from the mayors before you? Ater Nox: Well Taco Island has a long and complicated past, going all the way back to ancient times when it was lead by great and mighty Pharaoh's. After many long years of war and destruction, society was brought into some semblance of order under the first and very wise Mayor of Taco Island. Since then, the Mayors of Taco Island have ensured it leads the way in economic development, and thanks to our record breaking spam production, we are quite possibly the greatest island in all NationStates. Now, am I going to claim to be the Greatest Mayor of Taco Island of all time? No, not explicitly. But I'm not saying I'm not the best, and I'm certainly not saying that I'm not not the worst. Kozmix: What has been your favorite thread thus far? Ater Nox: Which thread is my favourite? That's a hard question, I've made so many amazing threads. I mean, at the end of the day, what makes one work of art better than another? Of course, some pieces truly transcend the bounds of mortal art, threads such as d, The Schnitel thread, The SS Ator Boltor and my mansion all come to mind of course. Kozmix: Do you believe that Taco Island is open to all? Ater Nox: Of course, Taco Island is open to all. Assuming of course they have filed the proper paperwork, paid the appropriate fees and bribes, pay their taxes on time and don't try and bring any sembalance of sanity with them. This made me question a lot about who I am as a person, and therefore the conversation had to be stopped here for now. We resume it in due course. Written by Kozmix

June's Special Feature: The Poet Laureate's Poem for June 2018 Aersoldorf won the poet laureate competition this month, making this his 13th time holding the title. He graciously allowed me to use this poem as this month's special feature, so that our friends in various parts of the NS world can enjoy this delightful and wonderful poem. So, without further ado, this was their entry for the competition this month, with the theme "Flowers". The Flower of My Youth A forest filled with leafless trees, Beneath a sky of lead. Still sentinels surrounding me, My Muse, my Love, is dead. Their frozen fingers, rimed with ice, Claw at, and chill, my soul, Where once did beat a love-warmed heart, They probe a gaping hole. The Flower of my youth is gone, In Winter's grip I'm held, The songs of Joy, once everywhere, Have had their voices quelled. Ye offspring of the meadows, that Of sun, and rain, are born, Art hideous beside my bloom, So bow your heads and mourn. You, Gold of Kinabalu, are Most dear, in price, to own, And yet, a fortune meet her worth, No man has ever known The Udumbara, legend holds, Three thousand years 'tween blooms, My Muse, each day, more lovely grows, A fairer form assumes. O Middlemist camellia, Quite rare, but two exist, Yet common, thou, compared to her, Unique in Time's deep mist. Though trapped within an icy hell, To Hope I firmly cling, And pray each day that, come what may, She'll bloom again, come Spring Report Written by Kozmix

August's Special Feature: The Answer to Life, Universe and Taco Island - The Mayor This month, we start a two part interview with the ever busy mayor of Taco Island, Ater Nox. His eternal majesty, Lord of the Taco and Cream Cheese filling, among other things, graciously offered some of his time to answer a few questions for us. Take a look: Kozmix: Thank you for your time. So, Mr. Mayor, what is it like, now that you have made it? What is the life of a Taco Island Mayor like? Ater Nox: First of all, let me point out that I didn't personally make 'it', the construction of 'it' was outsourced to independent contractors and so any damages or injuries caused by 'it' is in no way my fault. Secondly, my management of 'it' ensured the project came in only mostly over budget and behind schedule, ensuring Taco Islanders will not be pay quite as extensive an 'it' tax that they may have. You're all welcome. Finally, 'it' is very good, which is a reflection of my own skills, expertise and genius. The life of a Taco Island Mayor is very hard, and I can say that with a completely straight face. Every day I have to work incredibly long hours to send bribes, receive bribes, solicite bribes, ignore the requests of my constituents, blackmail Council of Nine members, institute unfair laws, transfer money from the treasury to my secret offshore accounts, ignore the demands of my constituents, slander my political opponents, spread rumours about people I don't like, laugh at poor people, donate official funds to my fake chairty, cover up my more heinous crimes and that's just on one of the quieter days. I know it must be hard for you to imagine, but some days I even need to get out of bed before noon in service of Taco Island. I truly am a man of the people after all. Kozmix: That sounds like a lot of busy work, Mr. Mayor. So, tell us more about Taco Island, and how Mayor Ater Nox, the first of his name, has been different from the mayors before you? Ater Nox: Well Taco Island has a long and complicated past, going all the way back to ancient times when it was lead by great and mighty Pharaoh's. After many long years of war and destruction, society was brought into some semblance of order under the first and very wise Mayor of Taco Island. Since then, the Mayors of Taco Island have ensured it leads the way in economic development, and thanks to our record breaking spam production, we are quite possibly the greatest island in all NationStates. Now, am I going to claim to be the Greatest Mayor of Taco Island of all time? No, not explicitly. But I'm not saying I'm not the best, and I'm certainly not saying that I'm not not the worst. Kozmix: What has been your favorite thread thus far? Ater Nox: Which thread is my favourite? That's a hard question, I've made so many amazing threads. I mean, at the end of the day, what makes one work of art better than another? Of course, some pieces truly transcend the bounds of mortal art, threads such as d, The Schnitel thread, The SS Ator Boltor and my mansion all come to mind of course. Kozmix: Do you believe that Taco Island is open to all? Ater Nox: Of course, Taco Island is open to all. Assuming of course they have filed the proper paperwork, paid the appropriate fees and bribes, pay their taxes on time and don't try and bring any sembalance of sanity with them. This made me question a lot about who I am as a person, and therefore the conversation had to be stopped here for now. We resume it in due course. Written by Kozmix
