It's a shame that the event's random element played so much of a factor, but it was still an interesting April Fools' for the year.

Wow, that's amazing! I hadn't noticed, my apologies.

I agree, it was interesting. And a very good change from the usual clicking with time-outs... I'm really tired of events like Z-Day, where it's all about not leaving the monitor, acquiring carpal tunnel syndrome and creating as many puppets as one can. It was nice to finally have something laid-back. I wish more events were like this.

You would have to have been actively watching my rankings to notice, it only lasted maybe half an hour tops before I started sinking again.

[v] mentioned that one of the ideas behind this event was to not advantage large puppet-farm owners, and I'm glad that was the case. It was much better.

Hi I've been gone for a loooooooooooooong time

You could always disable those.

So annoying they got rid of the "jump to last RMB post" button on top of region pages :-\ Now I have to use the "End" key on my keyboard like a normal person.

With the new admin team setup sounds like they may be making changes/adding features to the game.

I have propose the following idea if folks wanna voice some support/input on it.


Basically a means for founderless regions like Hell to get a founder of sorts appointed, "Security Council proposal type could be targeted at a nation and a region at the same time, and would appoint the nation as Custodian of the region, giving it access to regional controls."

Hey, SherpDaWerp, congratulations on getting another issue through!

Hello my friends here in the Gallows. First off I must start off by saying all forms of this fine assembly of nations, whether it was Tiamat, Gallows or anything in between has been crucial to my nations development. Culturally it has created something great for the Primotavien Empire. I am forever grateful to all of you for how you have helped my nation develop. You have added much to Primotavien Lore and you have helped to create much of my nations history. Even when Glass Gallows had its forum, that was a lot of fun. I mostly enjoyed it for the roleplays and the stories that were created there. I will forever be loyal to Gallows and the vision you all have here.

With this being said, I am reaching out my arms to Gallows and opening an invitation to join the Novian Galactic forum. This forum was constructed by the ideas and creative minds of Darnoc and EJB. I am not asking you to leave this region. I believe Gallows and its ideas must remain. I am only extending an invite to the Novian Galactic Union for those who miss the days of roleplaying with your fellow nations.
