    10000 Islands Monthly Emissary Update Date: November, 2013 Population: 1,304 Delegate Endorsements: 443 Forum: 10000islands.proboards.com/index.cgi The following is the Emissary Report for October, 2013. Political Events: October is a non election month in the Islands, so no surprises there. Our New Republica South Senator, Tsim, had a baby daughter, so at least we know someone's been getting some around here, married men, am I right! ..... *ahem*. Moving on, there is a discussion in the Council of 9 on renaming Taco Island to "Shelter's Taco Island", in honor of our recently passed Mayor of Taco Island, Shelter from the Storm. The current Council of Nine (the government of 10000 Islands) is: Grub (Founder) Malecia (Minister of Labor) Markanite, (Minister of Education) Aersoldorf (Minister of Immigration) Cerberion (WA Delegate) Tsim Sha Tsui (Senator, New Republica South) Randomain (Senator, Himes West) Ater Nox (Senator, Lyonesse East) Valoniah (Senator,Blue Canaria North) TITO News The merciless slaughter if invaders continues for TITO. Big profile mission for the month of October include Discordia 1 million, I mean 5, as well as a liberation of Middle Earth. You think those hobbits could look after themselves... Aersoldorf received his 100th battle star, and has thus been promoted to the rank of TITO Knightt Commander. As is tradition here in the Islands, we ripped off the the arm of the invader lead from his 100th mission and mounted above his door. Taco Island The chaos continues in Taco Island, with the spamming and whatever the heck it is they do in there. Werewolf 31 is on like donkey kong, so get your silver bullets ready, daddy needs him self a new throw rug! Also, Aersoldorf won the poet laureate contest. Here's his poem: On The Forum If your teacher's on your case And you're looking for a place Where you're not a big disgrace - Try our forum When your girlfriend makes you mad Or your parents have you sad And you're feeling really bad - Hit the forum If your boss is riding you Or your spouse has made you blue Then you know just what to do - Spam the forum O the characters you'll meet A zany crew that's quite offbeat Waiting gladly just to greet You on the forum There's a packing chimpanzee Who will cap you in the knee While the duck just hollers 'squee!' On the forum You can meet a dirty sock Who will shoot you with her Glock If her bleeding eyes you mock On the forum Start your own religious cult Unbelieving folk insult Then proclaim the net result On the forum At the Uni, take a class Hit the bars and hoist a glass O the many hours you'll pass On the forum You can role play if you wish Or just share your favorite dish Run for office, post your fish On the forum Play some werewolves just to cope Threaten Ketab with a rope You can find both fun and hope On the forum You can politics discuss, Filthy, raiding bullies cuss Or just chill and spam with us On the forum Spend your tacos buying stock Cook a camel in a wok Sing of schnitzel 'round the clock On the forum So the next time you're maligned And you need some peace of mind Sheer Nirvana you can find On our forum So it's been a big month for Aerso, good job buddy! That's all folks, until next time anyways. Report written by Valoniah; edited by Cerberion

    10000 Islands Update

    Hello, y'all - here is the June update for 10000 Islands. Date: June, 2013 Population: 2,080 Delegate Endorsements: 623 Forum: http://10000islands.proboards.com/index.cgi In June, ProBoards upgraded the forum and this caused a great deal of upheaval to our home board. As it stands now, most of the issues have been resolved. The Awards system, Taco system and shop have yet to be restored. However, Founder Grub is hard at work on these issues and we anticipate that the forum will be restored within a relatively short period of time. Political Events No elections were held in June. In July, the Senate seats of Himes West and Lyonesse East will be up for grabs. The Council of 9 is: Grub (Founder) Cerb (Minister of Labor) Markanite, (Minister of Education) Aersoldorf (Minister of Immigration) Woonsocket (WA Delegate) Malecia (Senior Senator, Blue Canaria North) Humansanity (Senator, Lyonesse East) Tsim Sha Tsui (Senator, New Republica South) Randomain (Senator, Himes West) Delegate Woonsocket has announced the appointment of four new Emissaries: Duckyian Empire - Texas, New Ecopia - Jethnea, Benevolent Thomas - FRA, and Land Filled With People- The South Pacific. Good luck to our four newest Emissaries in your missions to your respective regions! TITO News * TITO Battles in June included: Quebec, Band Camp. * There were several changes to TITO Command in June. Improving Wordiness has moved on and her replacement is the very capable Land Filled with People. * Tactical Officers Eist and Boltor, as well as XO Ad Infinitum have stepped aside and have been replaced by T.O. Benevolent Thomas and XO Kanaia. * We should take a moment to remember the service of Wordy, who led TITO through some of its finest hours, including the recent liberation of The South Pacific. * We should also take a moment to remember the contributions of Bolt, Eist, and PAI. To paraphrase a great leader of the last century: Never has so much been owed by so many to so few. * Last, As Senior Senator, I want to convey my fondest and most sincere wishes of good luck to Filed Commander Land Filled With People, Tactical Officer Benevolent Thomas, and Executive Officer Kanaia. Public Service, whether as Delegate, a Senator, a Minister, or a TITO Command Officer is oft times very burdensome. Many do not realize the demands placed on those who serve in these posts. This is particularly true of TITO staff. While Senators have the tri-annual challenge of running for office, TITO staff and the decisions they make are a direct reflection on the Islands and on our claim as the "Finest Fighting Force in Nation States." So please join me in wishing all three of our new officers the very best in the challenges they will be facing. TITO Command is: Grub (Commander in Chief) Land Filled With People (Field Commander) Benevolent Thomas (Tactical Officer) Kanaia (Executive Officer Taco Island Among the events on Taco Island this month: Werewolves 27, moderated by Pengu, is underway. This month’s game is called the Dreamer Trials. Random Happenings As stated in the opening, announcements regarding the upgrade to proboards will be made as new information is made available. Watch the 10000 Islands thread for news. Authored by Malecia Edited by Woonsocket

    10000 Islands Update

    XKI Update Date: May, 2013 Population: 2,605 Delegate Endorsements: 687 Forum: 10000islands.proboards.com/index.cgi Political Events There is a lot of news to report from the XKI political sphere for May. * Elections were held for 3 senate seats. The seat for Blue Canaria North was uncontested and therefore retained by incumbent Malecia * With the retirement of 3lit3 from the Senate, 3 candidates vied for the New Republica South Seat. This was a very long race and ultimately had to be decided by the Council of 9. The candidates were The Islands Party Candidate Tsim Sha Tsui, Valoniah, representing The Defender Party, and Ketab, carrying the banner of the Mayor Shelter Political Party. Per 10000 Islands Election Law, with no candidate receiving a 50% majority in the General election, a runoff had to be held between the top two candidates. The runoff ended in a tie between Valoniah and Tsim Sha Tsui. The race then moved into the Council of 9 where Tsim prevailed in a very close vote. * With Aersoldorf now serving as Immigration Minister, a special election was held for the Himes West seat. MSPP candidate Randomain prevailed over Olivia the Pig and Duckyian Empire, and will serve out the remainder of Aerso’s term. This seat will be contested again in July. * With the new Senators, the current Council of 9 is: Grub (Founder) Cerb (Minister of Labor) Markanite, (Minister of Education) Aersoldorf (Minister of Immigration) Woonsocket (WA Delegate) Malecia (Senior Senator, Blue Canaria North) Humansanity (Senator, Lyonesse East) Tsim Sha Tsui (Senator, New Republica South) Randomain (Senator, Himes West) The Council held the following votes: By a vote of 7-1, the Embassy with The North Pacific has been closed and our emissary has been recalled. By a vote of 8-0, the Council declined to establish an Embassy with the Royal Alliance By a vote of 8-0, the council declined to establish an embassy with The Rejected Realms By a vote of 8-0, the Council voted to establish a “Fund to Advance XKI.” Details can be found here: Fund for XKI TITO News May battles included: Furry Federation 5 Liberation, Disciples of Christ United, Italy 7, Asia 6, Imperial Joselltopia. TITO Command in May: - Grub (Commander in Chief) - Ad Infinitum (Executive Officer) - Improving Wordiness (Field Commander) - Boltor (Tactical Officer) - Eist (Tactical Officer) - Land (Tactical Officer) Taco Island Among the events on Taco Island this month: Werewolves 26, moderated by Lyonesse East Senator Humansanity, is underway.

Malecia received the Lockeria Green Star for brining in 450 confirmed recruits. For his outstanding work as a recruiter, the Council of 9 has granted Ater Nox his own House.

Good luck to Aerso leading the Immigration department as our new MOI! -With Minna’s retirement and Aerso becoming the new MOI, a special election will be held in May for the Himes West seat’s remaining term. - In addition, the seats for Blue Canaria North and New Republica South will be up for grabs.

Wordy posted a speech in an award ceremony, but since this is not accessible to anyone except TITO members, it is quoted as follows: At the end of April 2013 the Elected Delegate of The South Pacific turned rogue. He abolished the regional government, Forum and enlisted foreign support. This marked the beginning of a Week long battle involving Allies of The South Pacific and Defenders from all over NationStates including TITO. During this time Milograd together with Durkistan and another un-named third party managed to purge the region of 3000 Nations. TITO contributed Nations to the battle who returned again and again until the tide was turned. The continual effort slowly leached away any remaining influence the Rogue Delegate had until the final day when he could no longer afford the influence to ban any Nation in the region at update. Due to the tireless efforts and continual support of TITO among many others The South Pacific was freed during a final liberation effort launched by the joint efforts of defenders and allies. It is my great pleasure today to award all the TITO Nations that contributed to the week long operation and ultimate Victory. The South Pacific Liberation Medal Awarded to the following nations, in no particular order. My congratulations to you all.
