Tiki: I thought its gonna be about making my nation and laws and government and such HS: How has that differed from why you've stayed around? Tiki: I didn't know there will be a lot about acting with other nations and also I didn't know there is gonna be regions HS: What specifically about "regions" and XKI specifically attracted you initially? Tiki: I like to react with other ppl and also I like to be a defender. TKI is specially active. HS: And what keeps you coming back day-in and day-out to play? Tiki: Counting threads are fun also I like Tito Knights missions but I am using a app now and missions are hard to do. Probably I'm gonna not use the app soon. HS: What would you say is your proudest accomplishment in NS? Tiki: Being a TITO knight HS: What is the time you've laughed the hardest playing this game? The time this game has upset you the most? 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!

    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.

    10000 Islands Emissary Update Date: March/April 2019 Population: 1,116 Delegate Endorsements: 286 Forum: http://10000islands.proboards.com TITO Command Has your region been invaded, or do you want to get in touch with TITO? If so, contact one of the following nations: ~Chief Executive: Markanite. ~Field Commander: Kanta Hame. ~Tactical Officers: Kortexia, Shy Guyia, Smugglers and Mercs (EF), Sorya. ~Executive Officers: Aschente, Hakketomat. Election Season March saw an unusually busy election season, with a Delegate election and a vacated Senate seat meaning that we'd need to hold a total of four contests. Islanders hoping for a hard-fought election with plenty of fireworks were surely not disappointed by the Delegate election, which featured Lower Columbia, United Royal Islands, and Witchcraft & Sorcery. In the first round of balloting, no candidate won a majority, with Lower Columbia receiving 3 votes, and United Royal Islands and Witchcraft & Sorcery each receiving 24, sending the election to a runoff. This runoff was one of the more intense elections in recent memory, with both candidates and their supporters campaigning vigorously on the forums, the RMB, and our regional Discord. Further, the runoff saw a live Delegate debate on Discord, which is perhaps the first debate of its kind in regional history. During the debate, the candidates made their case to the voters, exchanging competing ideas on foreign affairs, transparency and reform, and the R/D game. The runoff election was a real barn-burner, with the two candidates remaining within 3 votes of each other for virtually the entire 3-day runoff period. In the end, however, United Royal Islands carried the election, with 27 votes to Witchcraft & Sorcery's 22. In the other elections, Twobagger emerged victorious against Hakketomat in the campaign to fill the shoes left behind by Sargon Reman, while Kuriko and Triora both ran successful (unopposed) campaigns for the other two senate seats. At the time of writing, the Council of Nine is as follows: Chief Executive: Markanite Delegate: United Royal Islands Ministers: Paffnia (Labor), Sargon Reman (Immigration), Tuga Nation's Dragon (Education) Senators: Jabberwocky (Senior Senator), Triora, Twobagger, Witchcraft & Sorcery* *Note: Kuriko resigned shortly after taking office, and Witchcraft & Sorcery was appointed to the vacancy. Fun and Games in the Islands While many Islanders were busy paying attention to the regional elections, others were enjoying the wide variety of regional games that 10000 Islands has to offer. March saw the newly knighted Mingulay Isle host a Cold War-themed Werewolf game, titled "WW63: Werewolves and Rockets." This game ended with the Americans securing their advantage in the Cold War, prevailing over the Soviets. Thanks to Mingulay Isle for hosting, and for everyone (guests and Islanders alike) for participating in a great game! Also wrapping up in March was our region's take on nation creation competitions, the Fifth Annual Hahiha Contest for Nation Creation! Named for a prominent Islander, this contest had a total of 17 different nations vying to create the best (or least worst!) nation, trying to stay away from the bottom of each day's World Census Report. In the end, the Republic of Tikistan outlasted the competition, taking home the grand prize. Close behind were Mingulay Isle in second, and Neutrality United in third place. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to Taco Island Charities for hosting, and to all participants for helping to ensure that the competition was a success. Finally, our regional baseball league, the 10KI Baseball League, heads into its first ever postseason. The Maple Bats (from Cromwell Protectorate) emerged from the regular season as heavy favorites after rampaging through the regular season. The Peoples Players (True Pacific) and New Austin Express (Texan faction) also qualified for the playoffs, with the Sola City Bandits (Twobagger) juuuuust squeaking in to the last playoff spot. As of this writing, the Maple Bats and Peoples Players have advanced to the World Series, with the Maple Bats holding a 1-0 edge in the best of 3 series. If you think playing games with friends sounds like fun, or if some of these games mentioned above have piqued your interest and you want to see what it's all about, or you just want to see your nation's name in articles like this one, why not take part in the games yourself? Most games are open to the public, including Werewolf games. Feel free to hop on in to our regional forums or Discord for information on how to sign up for the next round of games. Around the Islands March's Nation of the Month was none other than Free Earthian Yap, who is new to our forums and discord this month. Despite being new, Free Earthian Yap hasn't been shy about wading onto the WA part of our forum to debate some of the resolutions with other Islanders. Congratulations! Also this past month, our University saw a bit of a revitalization under the direction of our Minister of Education (Tuga Nation's Dragon). We've had a plethora of debate threads pop open, with Islanders weighing in on topics from the ethics of assisted suicide/euthanasia to whether or not recreational marijuana should be legal. A hearty thanks to Tuga Nation's Dragon for spurring activity in this oft-overlooked part of our forum! Last, but certainly not least, Mingulay Isle has been knighted this month! Mingulay Isle has been ever-present on our forums and Discord lately, so it came as a surprise to no one when he was knighted. Congratulations to Mingulay Isle, our 110th Knight, on earning membership to this hallowed group of defenders.
