I fixed some formatting (and one fact), and this should be ready for posting in our embassies. Ambassadors, get to it! After you post it, take a look, and make sure the forum doesn't mess it up.

EDIT: Actually, you'll need to remove the space in the [/ code] tag right under the Ygg Cup results - if I fix that, you only can see half the code here.

[b][u]Elections are in the Air![/u][/b]
Yes, at long last the Senatorial Elections have returned to Yggdrasil!
On the ballot this season are [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=elke_and_elba"]Elke and Elba[/url] for the seat of Aesir, and [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=doombringers"]Doombringers[/url] for Vanir. 
Since they are currently running unopposed, it seems that both candidates will get into office. Sources say that the current senator, [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=vrolondia"]Vrolondia[/url], has chosen not to run this season, and is instead taking a firmer stance towards inter-regional relations.

The current votes are as follows:
Aesir: Elke and Elba - 8 For / 0 Against
Vanir: Doombringers - 4 For / 3 Against

[b][u]Yggdrasil Immigration Report[/u][/b]
With GRO's on a recruitment rampage we see a return of activity moving through Yggdrasil. More specifically, our region has grown significantly from what it previously was, raising from 107 nations to the current [b]159[/b], the[b] 63rd[/b] most in the world.

[b][u]New Embassy with Canada[/u][/b]
Yggdrasil has recently opened an embassy with [url="http://www.nationstates.net/region=canada"]Canada[/url], our neighbor to the north (Well, for some of us anyways). Sources say that Canada is an old region, founded way back in 2003, and has been founderless ever since. They have embassies with at least 4 of our current friends; 10K Islands, Texas, Wysteria, and Global Right Alliance. A fifth, Equinox, is rumored to have previously had an embassy with Yggdrasil as well, but this may very well just be Vrolondia's crazy wall whispers. [i]I'm not crazy. [b]You're crazy[/b]![/i]

Regardless of the vocal state of my walls, both regions have similar populations, Ideologies, and Friends. Here's to hoping the Friendship lasts a long time!

[b][u]Midgard Refounded[/u][/b]
Our Development Minister and Cartographer General [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=silvadus"]Silvadus[/url] has refounded the region of [url="http://www.nationstates.net/region=midgard"]Midgard[/url]. Previously owned by [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=Goddess%20Relief%20Office"]GRO[/url] as a Sister Region to Yggdrasil, the Council has voted in favor of keeping it as family due to the historic and cultural ties between not only the regions, but the inhabitants.

I hope the best for you Silvadus, may Midgard become as powerful and prosperous as you dream. Yggdrasil will always be here for you and Midgard!

[b][u]YDS See action in SPACE[/u][/b]
The YDS Participated in a failed liberation of [url="http://www.nationstates.net/region=SPACE"]SPACE[/url] earlier this month in an attempt to free it from [url="http://www.nationstates.net/region=the_black_riders"]The Black Riders[/url]. Rumbles say leading the charge were members of the FRA, with various nations from other, smaller defender organizations.
[url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=Senjard"]Senjard[/url] was the first confirmed casualty of Yggdrasil, followed closely by [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=South%20Titania"]South Titania[/url], and [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=Goddess%20Relief%20Office"]GRO[/url].
It was around this time our endorsement count on the Defender Lead (Who shall remain anonymous for obvious reasons), peaked at 34, before settling down to 30, a mere 5-8 Endorsements to victory (Due to the actions of late sleepers, the endo count on the Invader lead lowered from 37 - 34, but they acted too late to change the outcome).

With the Invaders' counterattack, the defender line broke; but no retreats were seen in the RMB that day, only Insults and Banjections.

In the end, [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=zybodia"]Zybodia[/url], [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=silvadus"]Silvadus[/url] and [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=vrolondia"]Vrolondia[/url] also faced the almighty Ban hammer, and [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=fmxsoul"]FMxSoul[/url] retains his position over SPACE... For now.

On a more upbeat note, [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=Senjard"]Senjard[/url], due to his courage on the battlefield, was officially accepted by GRO into the YDS on the spot; something that has never happened in YDS history. Kudos to you, Senjard!

[u][b]Cross Regional Games[/b][/u]
[region]Wysteria[/region] has chosen to host an RP Olympics of sorts in the nation of [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=herzil"]Herzil[/url].
Those who are interested in signing up can [url="http://www.half-hp.net/yggforums/index.php?showtopic=6337"]go here for more information[/url], or should contact [url="http://www.nationstates.net/nation=vrolondia"]Vrolondia[/url].
Sources say the participating regions are Wysteria, Yggdrasil, Texas, 10,000 Islands, and Canada, so if you would like to test your mettle in the biggest cross regional event since the Nation States World Tour, this would be the time!

[b][u]Yggdrasil Cup Returns to Yggdrasil[/u][/b]
Yes, the Yggdrasil Cup has returned to Yggdrasil; and is in it's second tier. The winners of the previous round are as follows;
FCNobreloen[Elke and Elba], KF Stálhöfn[Senjard], The Almugaurd Parliament[Alyekra], Pharallyx Basin Blues[Zybodia], FCDominions[Elke&Elba], with Doombringers junior football team in the lead by a landslide.

The current round score is as follows:

[code]                                                       PL  W  D  L  GD  PTS    

FCDominions[Elke&Elba]                                2   2  0  0  +2   +6
KF Stálhöfn[Senjard]                                  2   1  0  1  +3   +3

[u][b]The United Provinces of Senjard[/b][/u]

The United Provinces of Senjard is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sigurður Helguson with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 2.24 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

This month, I decided to share with all of you a poem I wrote in honor of the fallen at SPACE.

[i]From little towns we came and fought, and marched into the throes,
the hellish nights of endless fears that heaven only knows
a thousand leagues across the sea, a hundred years from home
we gave them our eternity, and withered into bones

From little towns we came, and left, fought within, and died
from cannon bells and bullet shells ripping through the skies
and in the trenches we would see just who of us survived
the mornings hate of mortar shells while running for our lives

It doesn't matter who we are, who we fought or felled
if only you could understand that where we fought was hell
while marching forth to heavens gate with nothing but rounds
our memories and broken dreams, with family in the ground.

From little towns we came and fought, and marched into the throes,
To save the lives of someone else, we gave them all our own
but god forbid, a thousand leagues? I think we've always known
it was never for our freedom, and we didn't have to go
[/i]

Panic! In the Land of Vegetables!

One month ago, Garden Rocket, the founder of our ally, The Land of Vegetables, ceased to exist. About a week later, the Black Riders invaded the region. The Yggdrasil Defense Service was preparing for action, but Goddess Relief Office was able to contact Garden Rocket, and the region was restored. She has since placed The Land of Vegetables under a password, reflecting the reality of her activity and time commitments, but we look forward to the region's continued freedom.

Yggdrasil Immigration Report

In the last issue of the Observer, we were pleased to report that our region had soared to 159 nations. Now, four short weeks later, Yggdrasil is home to 263 nations, the 33rd most in the world. Historically, we have tried to keep our population around 220-260 nations, so it will be interesting to see if GRO continues recruiting, or if she takes a break for a while.

Valhalla Immigration Report

GRO has started recruiting for Valhalla in earnest, and the results are already impressive. One month ago, Valhalla had 11 nations - after hitting a four-year low of nine in December and January - and as of today sits at 75 strong, good for 153rd in the world. Things are looking bright for the region's continued growth.

Yggdrasil Senate Election Results

As the last issue of the Observer went to print, senate elections were ongoing for both seats. Our government has been running at full capacity for the last month, as Elke and Elba claimed the Aesir seat 15-0 and Doombringers won the Vanir election by a vote of 10-4. Both candidates ran unopposed.

Yggdrasil Cup Ends

The Yggdrasil Cup football championship ended in February, as FCNobreloen shut out KF Stalhofn of Senjard 2-0 in the semifinals to set up an all Elke and Elba final, their countrymates FCDominions having crushed the Doombringers junior team 4-1 earlier in the day. The final was a tense match, but FCDominons clinched the 2-1 win with a go-ahead goal in the 74th minute to become the Yggdrasil Cup champions. In the third place match, the boys from Senjard took down a much tougher than expected Doombringers team 4-3.

The final standings are:

1st: FCDominions [Elke&Elba]

2nd: FCNobreloen [Elke&Elba]

3rd: KF Stalhofn [senjard]

The top three competitors received cash prizes, while all teams that participated were awarded a limited-edition Yggdrasil Cup 2014 pin.

Cross Regional Games to Begin

One sporting event ends, but another begins, as registrations are closing for the first ever Cross Regional Games, hosted by Wysteria. Delegations from 10000 Islands, Canada, Texas, Wysteria, and Yggdrasil are busy preparing for the medieval-themed games, which begin March 11-12. Sixteen different disciplines will be tested, ranging from Jousting to Goat Throwing to Witchcraft by Dunking. We wish all our athletes the best as they make their journey to Wysteria to compete.

Regional Award Ceremony Held

On Medal Day, which fell this year on the 28th of February, Goddess Relief Office hosted the Eighth Regional Awards Ceremony. In addition to praising the contributions of the members we have lost over the years, specifically King Lionheart, RedIron, Travancore-Cochin, and WookieO, the Goddess presented a number of awards. For their lifetime service to the region, ministers Silvadus, South Titania, and Zybodia were all awarded Distinguished Service Medals. The Shield of Freya was awarded to both Alyekra and The Phoenix Flame for their actions in protecting the region when GRO ceased to exist. For their work in the World Assembly, Elke and Elba was awarded an Achievement Medal. Finally, for their work and assistance in strengthening our region and our relation with 10000 Islands, Islanders Grub and the late Shelter from the Storm were awarded the Order of the Rising Sun and the Harbinger of Peace medal respectively.

Congratulations to all the winners! A description of all the awards of Yggdrasil may be found here.

Anime Girls, and Puppies, and Dragons (Oh my!)

A Cutest Flag contest was held on the Yggdrasil RMB earlier this month, using the new poll feature. Ten nations participated, and thanks to a bit of sympathetic voting, nobody ended up with fewer than two votes. South Titania's cute planet was crowned the winner, with eleven out of the forty-seven votes cast. Doombringers and Space Nekos took second and third with eight and seven votes respectively. Well done to all who participated - we saw some very cute flags during that time, and some of them have stayed with us.

Valhalla Reignites Historic Flame with Council of Narnia, The Proletariat Coalition, and others

Valhalla has been active in foreign affairs this month, opening relations with a total of five regions, including New Warsaw Pact, The Crown Federation of Recon, Nordland, and The Proletariat Coalition, and reopening embassies with The Council of Narnia. Combined with the population boom the region is experiencing, this is an exciting time for Valhalla, as they expand their presence both domestically and abroad.

GA Resolution at Vote: Reproductive Freedoms

Votes For: 7,542 (68%)

Votes Against: 3,558 (32%)

Voting Ends: in 9 hours

Amongst Yggdrasil residents, voting is currently 17-3 (85% For).

Your Regional WA Delegate, Alyekra, has not voted on this resolution.

SC Resolution at Vote: Commend Auralia

Votes For: 5,532 (66%)

Votes Against: 2,913 (34%)

Voting Ends: in 1 day 21 hours

Amongst Yggdrasil residents, voting is currently 7-6 (53% For).

Your Regional WA Delegate, Alyekra, has not voted on this resolution.

With the recent news that this resolution is illegal, having been submitted by a WA multi of Auralia, voting is trending Against, despite the now-irrelevant nature of the vote.

Speaking of illegal resolutions, our own GRO - in the guise of Anime Daisuki was the subject of the previous Security Council commendation resolution, which would have passed by a 4-to-1 margin if a Rule 4 violation had not been found while the resolution was already at vote. We are all confident that the well-deserved commendation will happen in time, but we're starting to despair of an SC resolution actually making it through voting.

Valhalla is looking for a map! Anyone interested in creating and managing it please message GRO II or Goddess Relief Office

Silvadus is a month behind on Yggdrasil's map, but we ask for anybody who has claimed some land to go ahead and roleplay as though you are already settled there; after all, it does take time for maps to be created, even in the real world.

In addition, since I am writing an issue of the Observer for the first time, and I highly suspect nobody reads this far anyway, I would like to point out that 'cartography' only has one 'r', and this has been bothering me for years.

"*looks from afar* God this region is kawaii." - Gamhound

"Have u seen the Dateline episode where someone murders his neighbor's family due to prolonged stereo blasting? He couldn't sleep, so he poisoned them all by injecting cynide into coke bottles lol ♥" - GRO, in response to Thembria's excitement over blasting the radio

"*Is now feeling left out with nothing sitting on his head*" - Vrolondia, with no context necessary

"Everything is single serving size if you put your mind to it." - Zybodia, discussing the metric system, and the possibility of meterlong sub sandwiches

The Hobbits of Lullary

The Hobbits of Lullary is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Octavian Eladar with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 1.099 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

miscellany.jpg

Vrolondia Taking Leave of Absence

Vrolondia posted on the RMB on February 28th that due to something coming up in real life, he will not be around for an unknown period of time. Although not a current government official, Vrolondia is one of our most active members, being a regular both on the RMB and in the Spam areas. He ran the most recent Yggdrasil Cup, and he is also a diplomat, serving as our emissary to Wysteria, as well as our representative on the Cross Regional Games committee. In addition, he is the editor of the Observer. His presence will be sorely missed, not least of all by Thembria, who has taken to perching atop Vrolondia's head.

If I were Vrolondia, I would have composed a poem to honor his service, but instead I will just offer my heartfelt wish that his real-life issues may be dealt with swiftly and excellently, and that he comes back to us as soon as he is ready and able.

Emissary - 100ƒ per Month

Zybodia is looking for a new Emissary for Global Right Alliance.

The chosen representatives responsibility's will be posting any news and official government statements in our embassy there, and become an active member of the community, while fostering good relations between our regions.

Those interested are urged to browse this thread for more information.

Valhalla Cartographer

The region of Valhalla has no cartographer, but with recent growth is in search of somebody to create and maintain a map in consultation with GRO. Interested parties should speak with GRO.

Cross Regional Games Representative

For the Cross Regional Games, hosted on Wysteria's forum, we will need somebody to cross post results. Ability to be on both forums at least daily is a must. Contact Zybodia for more information.

Your Regional WA Delegate, Alyekra, has not voted on this resolution. 

With the recent news that this resolution is illegal, having been submitted by a WA multi of Auralia, voting is trending Against, despite the now-irrelevant nature of the vote.

Speaking of illegal resolutions, our own GRO - in the guise of [url=http://www.nationstates.net/nation=anime_daisuki]Anime Daisuki[/url] was the subject of the previous Security Council commendation resolution, which would have passed by a 4-to-1 margin if a Rule 4 violation had not been found while the resolution was already at vote. We are all confident that the well-deserved commendation will happen in time, but we're starting to despair of an SC resolution actually making it through voting.

Valhalla is looking for a map! Anyone interested in creating and managing it please message GRO II or Goddess Relief Office

Silvadus is a month behind on Yggdrasil's map, but we ask for anybody who has claimed some land to go ahead and roleplay as though you are already settled there; after all, it does take time for maps to be created, even in the real world.

In addition, since I am writing an issue of the Observer for the first time, and I highly suspect nobody reads this far anyway, I would like to point out that 'cartography' only has one 'r', and this has been bothering me for years.

[url=http://www.nationstates.net/nation=vrolondia]Vrolondia[/url] posted on the RMB on February 28th that due to something coming up in real life, he will not be around for an unknown period of time. Although not a current government official, Vrolondia is one of our most active members, being a regular both on the RMB and in the Spam areas. He ran the most recent Yggdrasil Cup, and he is also a diplomat, serving as our emissary to Wysteria, as well as our representative on the Cross Regional Games committee. In addition, he is the editor of the Observer. His presence will be sorely missed, not least of all by [url=http://nationstates.net/nation=thembria_ssr]Thembria[/url], who has taken to perching atop Vrolondia's head.

If I were Vrolondia, I would have composed a poem to honor his service, but instead I will just offer my heartfelt wish that his real-life issues may be dealt with swiftly and excellently, and that he comes back to us as soon as he is ready and able.

Is that a Skeleton in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Our own Minister of the Interior South Titania (Or, as he claimed, that dashing rogue "Vrolondia ") once again started something with The Skeleton Army. Soon after, Yggdrasil received a lively visit from the dead who decided to invade us with Barbecues, Flap-jacks, and a series of hi-jinks involving a fridge, squirrels, and Bilge Rat Ronnie .

Regardless, despite some resistance led primarily from Doombringers and Royal Imperious Yggdrasil fell to the skeletal hoard. After a few days of fighting, though, the war took a turn to the tasty and Yggdrasil has never smelt better.

Our sources say after the invasion of Yggdrasil The Skeleton Army moved on to Glorious Nations of Iwaku, let us all pray for their safety.

The skeletons safety, I mean, as Iwaku is known for it's Monsterous Cuddlotus.

Yggdrasil Immigration Report

Falling a little bit since last month, from 263 to 249 nations, the 39th most in the world. Let us all raise our hands in thanks to the great celestial goddess in the sky for keeping our little tree afloat!

Valhalla Immigration Report

Valhalla is falling a little bit harder than Yggdrasil, down from 75 to 49 nations, the 243rd.

More Elections!

More elections this month, with Minister of Development and Yggdrasil Union speaker up for grabs. So far, only Vrolondia and Elke & Elba have jumped for them, the latter having dropped out shortly after.

Goddess Relief Office had decided to become the new speaker of the Yggdrasil Union since nobody is running; this is sure to be an interesting term!

Cross Regional Games, anyone?

With the Cross Regional Games coming to a close let us recap on the Medals Yggdrasil/Valhalla has won thus far:

Hardy-Thoor family from Lullary has claimed Gold in Motte and Bailey; good work, Hobbits!

Cpt. Volon Holdens team from Junto has claimed Gold in Leech & Ditch; Good job Junto, you looked the most anemic of all the contestants!

Anysu Anir from Vrolondia has claimed Silver in Archery; Good work Handsome Devil!

Sinni Merseburg of Solskin has won Silver in Horse Racing; Good work... you... you!

Jack Hart from Doombringers also won Silver for Wrestling; good job Doombringers!

From this it looks like we god Big or go Home; no Bronze medals to report this year.

Next up is Siege Weapons, though, lets try our best to win that too!

The Empire of Royal Imperious

The Empire of Royal Imperious is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its compassionate, cynical population of 207 million are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

I don't have time to do a full proofread of this - and especially not to fix tags like I normally do - as real life is going full-tilt, but this looks good for posting in our embassies. Ambassadors who post it, please try to fix any broken tags. We are pretty much the only region which uses [nation] and [region] tags, and there are usually a couple other differences as well, depending on the region.

Closing of the Yggdrasil Union

The Yggdrasil Union, an RP based assembly of nations created by a former Development Minister, was shut down this month due to low activity. The Yggdrasil Union was responsible for giving a voice to non council members by passing laws and regulations to it's members; similar to the WA, but throughout Yggdrasil.

It was active for the first couple months of it's creation in 2009, but eventually dropped off in activity, and despite numerous attempts to revive it by the Speaker it remained that way until it's closing on May 27, 2014.

Vote! Vote! Vote!

This month saw elections Yggdrasil hasn't seen in years. Alyekra, Yggdrasils previous Delegate, and Pyronis, the Delegate of Valhalla both stepped down from their positions. Along with the Delegate positions, the terms of Senator were also up for grab in Yggdrasil.

Eventually, a whopping 4 people ran for the positions, with Elke and Elba winning Delegate with 10/2 votes against Royal Imperious, NeoPacificus beating Lullary 6/4, and Chevaux de Frise winning 11/0.

The Enemy Within

May 2016 was a very eventful month for Yggdrasil as a series of events lead to a region-wide panic and the unmasking of a traitor within our midst. Around the start of May, a nation by the name of Yugoslavia arrived in our region. At first , it seemed Yugoslavia was just another friendly visitor to our region - an assumption that was ill-advised in retrospect. He made a series of posts asking if anyone had heard of The Empire of France , an allegedly powerful raider region. Furthermore , he claimed to have information that the Empire of France was preparing a RAID on Yggdrasil.

Shortly after these posts on the RMB ,  New Fiera - the former editor of The Observer - claimed to have received telegrams from a nation within The Empire of France and subsequently sent a region wide telegram warning everyone of an imminent raid! Chaos seeped into the RMB with many nations raising questions even as the Council of Elders quickly formed an investigative committee into these allegations. It was quickly discovered that the so called "raider" region - The Empire of France - was quite minuscule in comparison to Yggdrasil and had very few WA nations. Suspicion at this point turned to New Fiera , after all....why did a Newsletter Editor receive the invasion threats rather than the Foreign Minister or even the WA Delegate, Skothafjordur

Goddess Relief Office then pulled New Fiera into a private discussion questioning these events. New Fiera was asked to explain the recent appearance of Yugoslavia (whose warnings of a raid coincided quite conveniently with the telegrams received by New Fiera) and was asked if Yugoslavia was his puppet. Unfortunately, that answer will never be revealed , for New Fiera subsequently left Yggdrasil.....making it clear that New Fiera & Yugoslavia were the same. New Fiera (now posing as Yugoslavia again) went to a number of other regions spreading word of the (non-existent) danger posed by The Empire of France. However , our agents had quickly informed these regions and Yugoslavia didn't last long before being banjected by the delegates.

Peace finally returned to Yggdrasil....and attention turned towards more pressing matters , like extinguishing the celebratory fires set by Thembria SSR.

 

This War of Mine

Barely had the flames (not Thembria's) from the invasion fiasco died down when the RMB was rocked again , this time it was a ideological war between nations in Yggdrasil. Our region is home to people with many thoughts and beliefs , discussions on the RMB are not uncommon and sometimes tend to go overboard. These discussions are always welcome in Yggdrasil and popcorn sales usually hit an all-time high during these events.

The clash in question was between Capitalism and Socialism. Decadent Capitalists lead by Neopacificus , Serjo and Tamanian held opinions that were strongly refuted by Glorious Socialists lead by Abenwald, The Shadow Republik and Canadian Davsland. A mini-war erupted on the RMB with neko-powered supercarriers , AK-47 kalashnikovs and other unrealistic weapons of mass destruction making appearances. Neopacificus even went as far as beheading Hatsune Miku to show his ruthlessness , only to accidentally turn on Abenwald.  In the midst of all this , Allemeine II decided the event would be best witnessed with popcorn while South Titania unsuccessfully attempted to create a Beer Volcano. After several million casualties were sustained by Serjo and The Shadow Republik's nations , Goddess Relief Office stepped in to defuse the situation.

One would've have thought that was the end , but the flames of war never do die down and the conflict erupted again this week with Serjo and The Shadow Republik choosing to engage in quaint Swordplay - well at least there are no more WMD's involved (not that there was anything left to bomb anyway). Stay tuned to see who will win this epic battle of empty threats!

A brand new Forum

The off-site forums received a much needed overhaul this month with nations appreciating many of the new features (foremost of which is the improved Chat room) and the ability to render HTML code directly with a simple copy-paste operation. Kudos to Goddess Relief Office on getting this setup in a short amount of time!

 

The World Destroyer strikes the forum

Just a few days after the new forum went up , a mysterious force sent several requests to the forum causing a DDOS and crashing it completely. Many were distraught and assumed New Fiera had come back exacting revenge. The IP address from which the requests were made was banned immediately. However , the identity of the true culprit remained unknown for a time thereafter.

One fine day , Abenwald reported that he couldn't access the forum as his IP address was banned. Coincidence? Apparently not , for it had been Abenwald who had "accidentally" caused the DDOS thanks to crappy decadent capitalistic Wi-Fi. Thus , the World Destroyer was born! The YDS has taken note of Abenwald's actions and has requested his assistance in covert operations to DDOS forums belonging to other nations. Go forth World Destroyer!

 

Yggdrasil's "The Observer" Newsletter gets a new editor!

In light of recent events with New Fiera's departure, The Observer - Yggdrasil's newsletter - has been taken up South Titania , a former delegate of the region.

 

A Murder of Puppets

Yggdrasil's population see-sawed dramatically over the last couple of weeks with several nations CTE'ing. The latest bunch to CTE were Miriliarith's puppets (numbering over 40) which caused the regional population to plummet to below 300 , which hasn't happened in a while. Yggdrasil's recruiters are working feverishly to correct this gross oversight. Expect more slaves to our dungeons next month!

 

Progress on the Yggdrasil Map

Anon Zytose continues his quest to create the quintessential regional map of Yggdrasil. Steady progress has been made with Zytose reporting that 60% of the work is complete. Nations held a day long celebration to motivate Zytose towards his goal and Goddess Relief Office too played her part in motivating Zytose with whips and oil (OUCH).

 

Embassy established with Osiris

One of the oldest regions on NationStates - Osiris - submitted an application to establish an embassy with Yggdrasil. Osiris is well known as one of the "sinker" regions (where CTE nations are resurrected). After deliberating , the Council of Elders unanimously decided to go ahead with establishing an embassy. Construction is expected to complete within 3 days. We hope that this will lead to a long and prosperous relationship with Osiris!

Yggdrasil's WA Delegate, Skothafjordur, has not voted on this resolution.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Observer strongly urges all Yggdrasil's member nations to take part in the regular World Assembly polls, whether you are a WA member or not. Skothafjordur cannot represent the region properly if he does not know what the region wants. All Yggdrasil WA member nations are also urged to vote on all World Assembly resolutions; voting is one of the keystone principles of democracy.

Yggdrasil Defense Service

The Yggdrasil Defense Service (YDS) is the common defense force of both Yggdrasil and Valhalla and defends our regions in time of peace or war. 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 10000 islands to secure Markanite's position of delegate after Markanite had accidentally resigned from the WA. YDS also deployed to Wysteria to place Hydroponic Nation 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 Philippines after the region was being invaded by The West Pacific and other invaders, which removed the rightful delegate Ariusgrad. 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.

 

observer%20inbrief.JPG
Philippines Proposed Embassy

Following our defense of Philippines, Yggdrasil has received an invitation to construct embassies with them. As Ramsea, our delegate stated on the RMB on the 27th of July:

Philippines proposed to construct embassies with us... we did help liberate them - Ramsea

 It is understood that the Foreign Minister has gotten in touch with the Philippines to process the application.


Tea Time With Who?

A year ago, Gahiland started the interviewing series, “Tea Time With Gahiland”.  The series included interviews with Vrolondia and South Titania. 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,  Imperium Germania stated in the RMB that he might be able to do with the series. Keep it up! We are looking forward to the series!

I'm sad I'm just discovering this now. It seems pretty fun to read. – Carrasastova

Can someone remind me, was someone going to be editor for the "Interview with/Tea with ____" series for Yggdrasil? – GRO

 

Banjection

There are not many reports of suspicious nations who immigrate to Yggdrasil but in this month, Wordy ejected a nation from our region. Nlfn is banned for moving through our region to help with a misguided raid against our friends in Forest. As Nfln was relocated to the rejected realms, it moved to Forest, and was ejected, then Texas, and was ejected, then it moved to Violet Irises and resigned from the WA.

 

New Editor For The Observer

Yggdrasil’s The Observer was inactive for the past year. Now it has gotten a new editor for our glorious region, The Jingoistic Republic of Dardona will be editing The Observer from now on. Pleased to do the work!


The Representative To The Cross Regional Games Committee

 The Cross Regional Games Committee is an interregional organization for events, especially, sporting events. The 2018 Committee consist of Wysteria, Texas, Yggdrasil, 10000 Islands and Canada. The former representative for Yggdrasil and Valhalla was Zybodia who is now resting in peace in the boneyard so in that case, Yggdrasil needs a new representative for the committee.

Recently GRO has appointed Miriliarith as the new representative for the committee and the committee has published a list of member of committee for 2018, as follows;

The PotPourri Octo of Herzil, Wysteria.
The Poetic Tendencies of Aersoldorf, 10k Islands.
The Familial Spirits of Devil Heart, Canada.
The Imperial Rule of Miriliarith, Yggdrasil, Valhalla.
The Riverboat Ron of Indian Empire, Texas
Congratulations and Good luck!


Polls, Polls, Polls

 In the past month there has been two polls in Yggdrasil;

1. Who is the best Spiderman? With the result of “I hate all three and literally a spider with that costume would have done better” beating Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland

2. Who are your closest to in your family? Why? With the surprising result of “I like ramen” beating a pet, mom, siblings, grandparents, and daddy.

Ramen is there when I'm hungry

Ramen is there when I'm thirsty

Ramen is there when I'm cold

Ramen is the only one who cares for me – Miriliarith


Attack On New Phone Site

Although NationStates is best played on the computer, it is also available on mobile sites such as android and iOS. In the past few days, NS has gotten a new look on mobile sites, with an updated menu tab and illusions of a part of the flag at the top of the screen. The picture of national flag running down at the side of telegram menu is also available.


Process on Maps

Our hard working cartographer, Anon Zytose, has finally finished his projects and the physical and national maps is now available for download in different qualities and formats on his dispatch. https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=840514 The mathematical rule for land claiming and expansion is also described.

Your Delegate Ramsea didn’t vote on the resolution

The Observer strongly urges all Yggdrasil's member nations to take part in the regular World Assembly polls, whether you are a WA member or not. Ramsea cannot represent the region properly if he does not know what the region wants. All Yggdrasil WA member nations are also urged to vote on all World Assembly resolutions; voting is one of the keystone principles of democracy.

The 📚 Novel of Wordy

The 📚 Novel of Wordy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wordy ღ with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, unlimited-speed roads, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.115 billion Nepheliad have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

“If this was the real world the USAID and other supposedly humanitarian organizations would start setting up shop in Thembria SSR while Radio Free America will start boardcasting and CIA funds your opposition.... unless you sell oil to the US and allow bases to be set up, in which case you'll be alright.

Lucky we are on NationStates! No need to worry about external influences! You can be as dictatorial as you want! Ramen” -GRO

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.

[b][u]Yggdrasil Defense Service[/u][/b]

The Yggdrasil Defense Service (YDS) is the common defense force of both Yggdrasil and Valhalla and defends our regions in time of peace or war. 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.

[b][u]Philippines Proposed Embassy[/u][/b]

Following our defense of Philippines, Yggdrasil has received an invitation to construct embassies with them. As Ramsea, our delegate stated on the RMB on the 27th of July:

[i] Philippines proposed to construct embassies with us... we did help liberate them[/i] - Ramsea

 It is understood that the Foreign Minister has gotten in touch with the Philippines to process the application.


[b][u]Tea Time With Who?[/u][/b]

A year ago, [b]Gahiland[/b] started the interviewing series, Tea Time With Gahiland”.  The series included interviews with Vrolondia and South Titania. 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!
