I don't speak for the entirety of /mep/ but I'm not opposed to a union nor to the canal. My oshi already has positive connections reaching all the way to /zomg/ and /hirys/, but the canal could open up easier communications with /uuu/ and /who/.

That said, it might be better if /inf/ can focus more on making allies and trade partners instead of protectorates in the future (even if those threads are fine with it), so that it won't turn into a Scramble for Inactive Splits situation.

Agreed. We prefer an alliance and trade partnership with /mep/ over a full protectorate deal.
Would that be to your liking?

>> No.19937023

Yeah, I said that because /risu/ became a protectorate and >>19934602 asked if /mep/ is interested in becoming another protectorate first, so I want to raise that point first just in case. If more threads are getting more protectorates, then we might have to limit that kind of interaction with countries representing threads not active in this project. I mean no offence, though.

>> No.19937070

Right now /nasa/'s priority is to repair the engines in the station so we can move it out of the crater. By using what we learned about this chuubanite we think we may have a breakthrough in how to apply chuubanite safely to fuel. We may even invented a new and better form of fuel. But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Building the canal is going to take months of planning and years of convencing to make it happen. It is a good idea on paper. But we may lack the resources and technology to make it happen at this time.

I vote against this because that makes the game dull diplomatically wise.

If we got dead generals, you might as well let countries vie for them. However, they're only allowed to take them as a protectorate if the general is still around and it can be confirmed that the people there really don't care about the game. If the general is dead, the country is turned into schizo territory that will be transferred to whatever new split shows up with new vtubers.

And also put a limit on how many other splits you can annex or turn into protectorates. That way you don't have to worry about /who/ annexing the entire western part of hololive, or /infinity/ turning themselves into the Great Britian of the world by having protectorates around the globe.

It is, would that information change your stance on the issue?

Yeah, I'm not saying we should have a complete ban on interacting with threads that don't participate in this project, just that some kind of limit on how many protectorates a country could have might prove necessary in case the active threads here pull a Scramble for Africa on the inactive ones, hence me suggesting the /inf/ rep to try not to make more new protectorates/vassals out of them in the future. (sorry for the run-on sentence)

>> No.19938063

Yeah we don't want more protectorates, which is why I'm glad /mep/ is more open to an equal union. That being said I support a limit on colonies / annexations / protectorates, but trying to get more generals interested in /vtwbg/ and offering and alliance is more interesting than more "we don't care about this autism, go ahead take our land". It's just that /risu/ was very disinterested.

>> No.19938078

That's why I say there should be a cap on how many countries you can annex or turn into a protectorate at this phase of the game.
And for further balancing, there has to be some logical reason for it happening. /infinity/ annexing Risu makes sense because the canal there would greatly boost their trade influence.

Just saw the post in KFP. While I'd like to agree to it for reasons of being on very good terms with the Kronies, realistically there's no geopolitical/financial incentive for us to do it. It will cost us a lot, and will not especially benefit us either, in fact it could be actively detrimental to us. We have are on significantly better terms with the Nijis than most other Holo splits, and we have a certain understanding with the Pomudachis who have agreed to let ships baring a /KFP/ flag through unmolested, which has given us an effective monopoly on that trade route.

HOWEVER the winds of change are coming. We understand that if this project goes through this little niche for ourself we've made will disappear, so I believe that it is for the best that we help, but on a condition. We will assist in funding as long as we are given reduced tariffs when moving through the canal.

>> No.19940147

Of course! All who help fund the canal will have reduced tarrifs in accordance with their contribution. You won't regret this, KFP. Thank you very much

I do hope now that it's so much easier to get to one another, you'd be open to an alliance that would see even less tarrifs for you, as well as new offers of technology. Honestly I just love Kiara and KFP, I already included a KFP-based unit in our police force lore kek

Either bump the entire world to 1850's tech or blast /infinity/ back to 1700's. They, unsurprisingly and as before, went against their word.

They are trying to build a canal approximately the length of Japan, 2000 km. Panama canal is 80 km long, and half of it consists of preexisting rivers and lakes. This doesn't even mention that the terrain appears to be "flat", but "flat" on this map can still mean hills or elevations up to 400-500 meters, probably, given how few colors the map has.
People said that it was a project for decades, but with your tech, it's a project for centuries and unimaginable upkeep. You've clearly had the idea and pushed for the thread to agree that building the canal is feasible/good idea anonymously, despite having zero justification for it. You've abandoned your previous pleas, those that made people accept your tech in the first place.

We were told we couldn't be isolationist and a trade hub at the same time, so we chose the latter. I'm fairly certain it was you who said so too. So what's the problem exactly?

I'm open to everyone being bumped up. The only reason we wanted to have a tech advantage was because we wanted to be post-Industrial Revolution, not vice versa. We invite the rest of the world to join us in the 1850s, it's cozy up here.

And we have never gone back on our word before. If anything we are very autistic about people keeping to their word.

And also we all have magic man the fuck you mean we can't terraform a canal given time and effort

Whatever we do you will be opposed to it. I cannot fathom why, but it's very obvious this is the case.

Magic wasnt supposed to be used as a "fix all" solution to everything. It should be a rare and valuable thing, not something used in everything and everywhere. Turning chuubanite/magic into /vtwbg/ version of "A wizard did it!" is just lazy writing and incredibly boring.

>> No.19940766

yeah alright, that's a fair consideration. I don't have an issue with Infinity going for some punky a-historical tech, or even being a little ahead, but building a canal that big would be drudging work unless we're going to retcon in a bunch of lakes to Risuner, which is one map change I'm not actually willing to support since it really doesn't make any sense thematically.

You being isolationists was the reason your island was to the east to begin with. There's a very easy fix to this - move the island westwards. I can't believe we're at this timeloop again.

While I agree withy our point about the impracticality of the canal, I feel you're being unfair to /infinity/. They had a vision of what they wanted to be LONG before a setting was even imposed, and even then it was basically universally agreed that the setting should be loose to allow threads like /Infinity/ to have their aesthetic without it clashing with the rest of the world.

I also find the accusation that this is /Infinity/ trying to capitalize on lack of activity incredibly unfounded considering that they went to 3 other splits to ask for their consent on this project, which lead to the two of those threads (/mep/ and /risu/) getting reps where they previously hadn't.

>> No.19941369

Personally, I would rather not have the base tech level of the world bumped up again (at least while keeping the general low fantasy setting at the same time), because it's already starting to strain plausibility to have /meat/ be in the 1700s, and later inventions up to the mid 19th century will make it even hard to accommodate than before.

>> No.19941803

You're correct about using guns, and out-of-universe at least I'm more interested in developing the culture. That said, the issue is that while I think I think accommodate it while still having /meat/ able to raid for captives logical with 1700s technology (due to the lack of effective range for guns at the period, as well as generally lower centralisation and state control), the period between 1700 and 1850 see significant improvement in both regards, so porting what we have for /meat/ when it comes to military to 1850 will make it rather unlikely that /meat/ can actually succeed in taking captives for sacrifice. While some use of chuubanite might be able to compensate for that, I'm not sure if that would fit under the predetermined low fantasy setting of this world.

How is vague ambivalence combined with a "wait and see" approach for the borg cube "majority of the thread voting in your favour"?

I'm bringing it back because it's relevant. The location of the island does matter if you wish to be a "trade hub" - there's a reason why New Zealand isn't a bustling trade hub like the Malay Peninsula.

You are ignoring all the other generals who already made their aesthetics align with the world, or those generals that would benefit from medieval/renaissance aesthetics. That being said, it is unsurprising since you don't give a rrat's ass about the project from any other perspective than circlejerking /infinity/.

Also, don't do historical revisionism, as most Kronies tend to do apparently. The initial age of the world wasn't exploration, it was Renaissance, 1500's. It was then bumped to 1700's, at which point inter-hemisphere diplomacy was very much viable.

The response they got from Risu was "we don't give a damn take our land". They are basically abusing indifference of other threads (Risuners have posted here before the dama, mind you) to score cheap "gains" before the world is even set up.

Not me. Also, I assume that /infinity/ is now aiming to "cut all ties" with anyone who disagrees with them trying to impose themselves on /vtwbg/ now? Anyone who calls you out for utter bullshit?

>> No.19942268

I think /meat/ has always been into asymmetric warfare (which also includes guerrilla warfare), but the issue of that is two-fold, at least in the way I see it.
For in-universe, the main issue is that guerilla more or less requires knowledge of, and support from locals, which is most probably not going to happen when /meat/ is targeting other countries. Granted, kidnapping and human trafficking will still work, as another part of /meat/ lore is that there are cultists in other countries spreading their practice. It is still possible to rely on those for sacrifice, or just opting for domestic /meat/, but that brings me to the other part of the issue.
For out-of-universe, part of the /meat/ aesthetics is its raiding (as found in Vikings and Aztecs, both being /meat/'s main source of inspiration) foreign coasts to bring sacrifice back to its altars. That is also how /meat/'s military and, by extension, Mai's blessing is designed around, so if we're to adopt a more stealthy approach, those elements will no longer be viable, which I would rather avoid if possible.

Mostly ships, shipping, and storage.

I'd like to hammer out a contract between infinity (hereinafter "you") and the Chronobanks company & it's extended partners (hereinafter "we"), concerning the rights of storage and carrying of goods.

I propose a deal where we are allowed to buy and store goods which you are trading with other nations or factions, and sell these goods back to those factions AND ONLY those factions. In short, I want shipping rights, not exclusive shipping rights (unless that is what you are into. Would allow you to keep your isolationist approach since technically it wouldn't be you doing the trading), just shipping rights.

I believe this deal would be beneficial for both of us. You wouldn't have to risk your ships on the stormy and pirate-infested seas, there would be no risk of losing profits since you get paid in your home ports. Additionally, I can promise you that /infinity/ ships and their crews will have a safe and affordable place to stop by, refuel, re-stock, and relax in the Serene Republic for as long as the deal holds up.

Oh and I want to buy some of the goods you produce for personal use.

The exact details of the contract can be worked out later, this is merely a proposal to begin negotiations.

Different anon from the conversation but I'm gonna nip this in the bud before it spirals into another autism arc.

False. Kronies were originally granted that island by silence/lack of people going against it. Due to Zone autism was a thing happening at the same time. Not by popular vote. (If we are talking about original grants)

Neutralfag made a proposal to put the same island in the West just so the placement matched the rest of the maps, then kronies harassed him out. Nothing to do with isolationism or the island. The eastern placement was defended with the desire to be isolationists and no requirement to be close to the gens. (Which technically there is, since most other placements were made with that logic, according to Neutralfag anyway)

The concessions kronies had to make was literally for your own island, something no one else got. You don't get to say "we made compromises", when your compromises was to make your idea fit in the first place. It's only plural when it fits, and further comprise are made post fact.

This is a literal timeloop of frostpunk influence or not, tradehub or not, isolationist or not.

Being put the West would be a compromise, anything done before the finalization of /inf/ island is just buy-in and shouldn't be counted as consessions.

It was defended because it was promised to us. Sorry, "promised" is what we said at the time but we've been corrected to say it was "given" to us. It's not for isolationism. It's because it was the area given to us waaaay back with the invites.

Enough of the timeloop now. No one in this argument ii going to change their minds no matter how many deadposts and screenshots I pull up.

Infinity wanted the island and the Borg cube because that's what was given to us in the invite.

Neufag tried to change that, twice, after the fact and I made a poll to see if people were in favor of us having what we wanted. They said yes.

A schizo falseflagger stirred up infinity into harassing out Neufag even when a few Kronies such as myself tried to keep him on board and be more civil about our disagreements.

we already do both of those things. if the world were 300 years into the future, one solution could be to make our magic more powerful, however we already were forced into conceding that our magic is basically just a background sort of thing. we get hurt, we go back to a medic out of combat, and maybe we'll get a month's worth of recovery out of a weeks, but if our head gets disconnected we are irreparably dead. if we said this was no longer the case, and that we could heal more accurately to the source material, that could definitely help us in dealing with this problem, while still not making us overpowered since anyone who knows how it works can kill us for good. this is all hypothetical, of course.

Age of Exploration coincides with Renaissance but takes place slightly before it. Renaissance is a cultural term, but in this case it was agreed to be 1500's, which is later than early age of exploration that took place in the 1400's.

It was given to them originally before western position was suggested. my memories foggy on it, but I'm fairly certain they also didn't want to be put with their own gen due to reasons of them not feeling especially close to them, which is in all honestly quite fair. using my own split as an example, I'd say we have more cross post with Mep, Duck, and the Pomudachi part of Lazulight than we do with anyone in our own gen.

On top of that, moving them West, or to the mainland, at this point would be destructive, and would serve only as a mockery ritual. both me and the infinity rep have written a good amount of lore that's contingent on them being where they are right now, so moving them would uproot all of it.

The western spot was first for "Council", The eastern island was given by silence and a map anon just placed it there with no debate due to Zone autism.

Oi, why is /infinity/ trying to cut off the defining trait of /nasfaqg/ and /#/, which is trade? What is this?

I claimed our location basically before anyone else, pretty sure that only /meat/ claimed their land before us. At that point in time, I thought we'd be in the centre of the Hololive continent due to zoning, but then the continents flipped. While the current position isn't as good as before, trade and money is still basically the defining trait of /nasfaqg/, so I object to it being hamfistedly taken away by /∞/ just because, with the canal.

Besides, the canal would likely not be worth it there. Extremely long, which means high costs and upkeep, but also very slow transit. When travelling through canals you need to periodically pass through water locks, which makes the travel much slower. For example, in the Panama Canal, traversing it takes about 10 hours despite how short it is, five times slower than on the open sea. If the elevation of Risu's nation is uneven, it'd take even longer, and the strait you're trying to avoid is not only rich in different trading spots for generals, but also much, much shorter of a trip than going around South America.

>> No.19943711

Hmm, maybe it will be flexible. As we progress into modern times, maybe /meat/ will be able to heal themselves in the field without having to run to the medic, but it's still mortals taking time to recover. As we progress into the future, when its getting close to high tech nanomachine healing blood or whatever, /meat/ will have an edge by being able to heal from deadly wounds without recovery time.

Yes, but the point is still that the more we rely on chuubanite to patch the growing problem, the more it becomes high fantasy (40k is definitely high fantasy despite its SF trapping, given all the BS that can be pulled from the warp, but I digress), and I *really* don't feel like asking the rest of the thread if it's fine to change both the tech period and the fantasy level of the setting at the same time (I don't think we ever decide on if the world will progress OOCly).

the time period was voted on and discussed. We AGREED on punk history/floating history set sometime around the Victorian, the same way we agreed to have low fantasy and Chuubanite.
On top of that, moving forward was in the interest of threads OTHER than infinity. Nasa and RBC would function worse in the 1500's than the Luknights would in the 1700's. AND it requires very little technical effort.

On the other hand, moving infinity would require more work in photoshop, would uproot a ton of pre written lore, and benefits literally no one. No one in council especially cares about it, I don't want it, infinity doesn't want it and climate anon would have even MORE of his work invalidated. The only reason to do it would be to let you feel like you got one over on infinity.

go start a NijiEN hate thread or something. I'm not humoring you anymore after this post

>>On top of that, moving them West, or to the mainland, at this point would be destructive, and would serve only as a mockery ritual
>Can say the same about dropping the isolationist policy and the canal.
while I agree that the canal should probably be dropped due to it being impractical, I don't believe your comparison is at all fair. Infinity coming out of isolationism would be incredibly messy, but it would lead to more lore being created without completely destroying things that were previously written, since its a chronological development. China, for example, often swung in and out of isolationism.

Moving infinity island would, however, effectively retcon a lot of what me and Infinity have written, and put a lot of what Council have written for themselves on shaky ground.
Once again, doing it would serve only as a mockery ritual.

At this point we should do what we can to work with what's already present and make changes where they're requested by threads. If a threads wants to move its borders, then we consider it, but saying "well why can't other threads move" when no other thread currently wants to move is pure whataboutism

Just keep the status quo. The tech isn't that big of an issue if we're going with punk history, but the canal would be both unreasonable and disruptive. Moving the island is an alternative (since eastern position was argued using isolationism), but if /infinity/ doesn't want it nor do other posters, it's pretty much moot.

Just give /infinity/ a civil war or some nice lore about Black Ships over isolationism, so we get some good stories out of it.

In other words:
- Dropping isolationism: Aye, although some other threads (including mine) will likely increase the tech level.
- Canal: Nay. Hard to argue for using contemporary tech, likely will face technical difficulties/would be unfeasible IRL, and in-thread would debilitate several other threads reliant on trade.
- West Island: Abstain, but it seems /infinity/ doesn't want it. It's just a potential solution to the trade woes.

>Dropping isolationism
Abstain. I think having INF be a dynamic regional power that people worry about would be cool and lead to a lot of very interesting writing, but I don't want to speak for other threads that could potentially take issue with it, or want time to establish themselves and write their own fluff before being put under the hammer. My personal compromise is that /infinity/ can start to open up, but they have to write lore that justifies it first.

I think it's more of dropping Isolationism opens up the West Island debate since West Island solves both the "not Isolationist" and "Canal" change.

If /inf/ wants to drop isolationism, they have to come up with why they are in the East and not just historically be non isolationist. As another anon says. Eastern Claim can be defended with a civil war lore entry.

>> No.19944908

Like others said, it'd be more interesting to write us as having been isolationist but slowly coming out of our shell. Like Japan without the Commodore Perry.

I will let kronies decide if we push through or not. I want to minimize my use of veto power as much as possible.

40k is a great model to work off of. for some reason, few people seem to know that warhammer refers to two entirely different time periods. one medieval fantasy, the other sci-fi distopia. we have been having a problem with how /inf/ is so advanced, lets have a good understanding of the progression /inf/ took inorder to get where they are, and where they will be going. /meat/ is probably the easiest since we started as one of the most primitive societies due to us basically being the first to do any lore at all, not because /meat/ is inherently a bunch of savage, primitive barbarians. see our first green text and look for any prior if you can and the end result will be nurgle chaos marines i'm the guy who made the spoilered mai-chan post, a bit after posting that, i compared us to plague marines, your welcome but i'm sure others have an idea of how their cultures progressed. we also, agreed to have multiple timelines, which i think we should use more often to solve some of these problems. the solution to the grandfather paradox is realizing the timeloop can be fixed by creating two separate instances, two different universes if you want to see it that way. otherwise it just repeats ad nauseum.

That's admittedly another issue with the tech level bump, even if it is more sociological than technological - as time goes on, and as countries become more centralised, they're less likely to tolerate people who keep raiding their shit (even if they're not doing that out of the goodness of their heart). That's why the time between RL 1700 and 1850 saw events like Russia capturing the slave port of Caffa (which was a major port for serf-turned-slave to Ottoman Turkey), and USA beating the crap out of the Barbary states (which were the main source of maritime piracy in the area).

If they decided on it then I guess, sure, not like voting against this would change their mind.

I am publicly calling out inf for going against their word. The whole claim of being ahead in tech but not using it for military purposes because you're isolationists is thrown out the window, as I predicted. You even have a protectorate on the mainland, which they waltzed up to with steam boats and an army. Do you still blame others in this general for having concerns about your policies, current and future?
>>not being isolationists loses part of their Eastern claim, so this has to be decided and finally be put to rest.
Nah moving them is too much trouble, same as the making a new map suggestion. They made the claim early and deserve it, not to mention all the lore already written. Though one of the core reasons the island was put so far out in the ocean to the east was isolationism so I'd like to see a convincing lore explanation for this instead of "Starting from today we're not loners teehee ;>".
>>The canal is disruptive to other generals and lore.
Nay on the canal. It would be difficult, expensive and time-consuming to build with our irl current technology, nevermind 1900s tech, even if we try to use Vitubium to ease the process somehow, not to mention the upkeep. It would be on the level of a world wonder, and wouldn't bring much of a benefit in the area even after the long years it would take to build.
Refer to the post I made in >>19427400 with all the votes. It seems like the eras voted were 1650-1850 averaged at 1750 (roughly), punk/floating history with low fantasy elements. This would likely be around the time when raiders start getting suppressed.

Currently, magic in this world is powered by a substance called chuubanite, which works by binding with other materials for different effects. If you want /risu/ to have magic, you might want to see if that can be worked in, perhaps leaning more towards alchemical and medicine-making than the usual magic which I reckon is also closer to Ayunda's lore

>Any smart civilization will send armed guards with diplomats and surveyors in case of conflict
Yes, obviously, though one could just as easily predict they would send a force with intent to impress and/or intimidate the nation they're visiting. Since you mentioned boats of iron and smoke, which are I assume steamships and not ironclads, this can be interpreted as a show of tech superiority, nevermind that prisuners didn't give a flying nut about them. The size of the force wasn't mentioned either. The point isn't if you attempted to take the land by force or not, obviously that's not the case. The point is that not only did you send army outside your island, it now has an excuse to stay in /risu/, as I would assume you'd place army there to protect them since they've become your protectorate. Let me make the point clear, this means you have army on the mainland. Again, do you see why this would raise concerns?
>>we want to be more advanced
>>we want to be in the east of the continent because it was given to us in the invitation
Because you asked for it. For lore. For isolationism lore partially.
>>We want to be in the east and have high tech because of isolationism.
That is not what I'm arguing. My argument is that your claim of "we want high tech society and army, but won't use it offensively because of isolationism and civil war" is, at least partially, invalidated.

Hey buddy, been a while since we sat down like this, huh?
The station has been buzzing the last couple of days, ever since we recieved the signal from our Goddess,
and boy do i have things to tell you!

We had a major spike in power before the signal was recieved, but before we could react to it, we... we were raided.
It was unlike anything we had seen before, seeming more like and endless invasion than a simple raid, and many of our own were lost...

Huh? No, no i'm okay...we survived, and that's all that matters. It only goes up from here.

While we aren't up to 100% yet, not anywhere close, we have been able to get more systems up and running
over the last few days. The research boys are all huddled up in their labs, drooling over the meteorite that crashed
near us when the raid happened. From what i understood, they speculate it might be the missing piece that will get us
out of this hole we were stuck in the last couple of months. Seeing them this excited after this long does make me smile.

Oh, and it seems the power spike jumpstarted some door lock systems that were previously completely offline. Not many, but we did
get access to some sectors of the station that were previously locked shut. The bakers and farmers were able to put up a few more
greenhouses because of that, and traders that departed south are apparently returning with more of this land's produce.

The top brass also decided that now that the station has more power, some could be redirected to the systems on the bridge.
Me and the other navigators have been sifting through all the navigation logs, and trying to pinpoint where our weapons vault
crash landed. The fact it broke off during our descent was a blessing in disguise, otherwise it would have been buried and destroyed
completely during the crash. We do think that a big part of it might be ruined along with the weapons inside, but we still need it.
the last raid showed us that.
The scout teams should be able to find it within weeks once we have the general location. I just hope that it didn't crash too far north...

But it's getting late, and i should get to bed. Tommorow will be another busy day again. But should all go well, we will be in the warm
embrace of our goddess up in the stars soon, just you wait buddy.

Now come here, you deserved some headpats for helping me through last couple of weeks. Really... thank you.

If it means anything to you, I'd be happy to write that the civil war worsens now that we're not isolationist. So instead of our nerfs being "isolationist and in the middle of civil wars" it's now "so many civil wars we just can't think to use our military offensively". Maybe we have a new faction of extremists who want us to go back to isolationism, and since they had power and influence back then, they're more organized and dangerous than the other factions that were more akin to domestic terrorists.

Inf, since you wait 24h for your polls in your own thread, don't you think it would've been fairer to wait more than this to make a decision? Maybe ask for more posters to reply? As the other anon that seems to be representing risu has appeared, and seems to not mind the end result, it's fine, but it's still something to keep in mind alongside the immediate proposition of a protectorate. Again, it's these actions that raise eyebrows, and you've already been warned about taking rash decisions with the whole /yeah/ matter.
While it does sound like an interesting idea, I was and still am of the opinion that isolationism and civil war are not valid excuses. However, the thread has disagreed before, so other reps should give their own opinions as well.

>> No.19951507

I'm more receptive to isolationism and civil war in exchange for that, as long as it's being written more about. That said, it does make one wonder if that put a serious strain on trying to maintain /risu/ protectorate on top of the potential canal project. Granted, I don't think there's enough opposition in /risu/ to destabilise the land, but it's still something worth considering.
I do agree that it might be prudent to wait longer, even if the thread's generally not interested in it. It's not like we're in a hurry, after all.

>> No.19951652

It is a day like any other. Nothing of interest is happening. Trade deals are going on, poor people gonna poor, rich people gonna rich. All of a sudden, a ray of light shoots down from the heavens. It's a wide-angle disintegration beam. The Rushia nation vanishes without a trace, leaving a hole in the map.

>> No.19952644

Looking at the thread itself.
if /risu/ cared, someone else would have posted to say no. And to /infinity/'s credit, they didn't immediately announce they took over /risu/'s land before the ink of the agreement dried so if anyone there had objections, they had time to raise them. This also reduces the claim it was just /infinity/ talking to themselves because if /risu/ was interested in playing they'd have immediately exposed the plot.
Likewise I'm against holding a poll after the fact because the whole deal is now public and people know what /infinity/ is plotting. So it's a given third party groups will now vote to influence the outcome since all eyes are on /risu/

Finally, it's not an end all sitution, /infinity/ can't even do what they intended without spending decades of resources, assuming it can be done at all.

My opinion on the isolationism and civil war is mix them. The ruling government wants to open up /infinity/ whereas there's a conservative faction that wants to maintain /infinity/'s isolation, so they are constantly attacking /infinity/ and its interests to hurt the ruling government and their standing in the world.
Didn't someone from /infinity/ stage a false flag that tricked them into attacking a Nijisanji split? That's a perfect lore piece for that. We can even combine this to where the isolationists constantly target the canal project which further delays it being completed.

>> No.19952694

It doesn't have to be that extreme, also a hole in the map there would mess up a lot of things, including the climate.
What was suggested before was, since the Rushia nation was an area full of storms, after Rushia's fall from grace, one or multiple supermassive storms raged within the nations borders, wrecking it. I'd suggested things about deaths=people leaving the hobby, refugees=people waiting out the shitstorm, immigrants=people changing oshi's etc, but I don't think we've decided on anything.

No. You cannot feasibly buildd that with your tech, and even if magic allowed it somehow, it would represent no gain.
It would also absolutely fuck over with the identity of the trading threads like /nasfaqg/ for what? A vanity project?

Which leads me to:

I'm against moving your island again because I want the map to remain stable, but you really need to stop and take a look at yourselves.

They used it to justify having a technological advantage, now that they've got boots on the ground others have taken issue with it, also, civil war can spill over into other countries now that they've got a land border, so basically, they should really reconsider some of their lore and technology if they go ahead with it.

I actually want /inf/ to defend this. The claims given to the Kronies built on each other (east island, higher tech, and isolationism) and since 1 of the claims is being invalidated (isolationism), the matter has to be resettled.
>Kronie: can we be on the east? Map anon gave it to us!

It's too much work to move the damn island now, but FFS, what's the point of fucking over the project to get the Eastern Island, if you won't follow through to why people gave it to you in the first place.

I don't think the island should be moved but /inf/ should be given a penalty card and put on notice for demanding a change, justifying it with something, and then removing that something later on.

>> No.19957600

/wg/ rep here. This shift against isolationism is precisely why people took issue with that being considered one of /infinity/'s drawbacks. Civil wars being a nerf have the same problem: they can be written out too easily later on if the split changes their mind about that facet of the lore.
I don't mind the canal being attempted, but clear limits have to be set now. As others have stated, such a project would likely take decades and be extremely costly and labor-intensive. It also does not provide that much of a time save compared to going through /ahoy/ and /nasfaqg/. If /infinity/ wishes to proceed with putting so much of their limited resources into its construction to avoid those splits, then fine, but it shouldn't be an easy undertaking.
I'm not a fan of nations expanding their influence so early on. The game hasn't really started yet and the majority of splits are still unaccounted for. If things are going to keep moving at this speed, then we should send out another round of invites to the inactive threads asking if they want to participate. The fates of any nations which don't want to join in can then be discussed here in this thread with everyone instead of reps seeking out certain threads and taking apathetic shrugs as a blank check to move in. I'm not saying that's what /infinity/ did here but I don't want that to see that become an issue.
>moving /infinity/
No. I don't want to enter that timeloop again.

I think having a looser system will lead to bad actors getting away with more. We can still have fantasy elements and the like, but clear limits need to be in place.

I think it makes sense.
1. The general has focused on nations and people, and no people could survive long-term right on the poles.
2. As you say, poles get deformed as fuck on Mercator projections, which is what the general is using, makes more sense to cut off at a given latitude.
It would be useful to decide whether each pole has a polar ocean or an Antarctic-like continent.

I am going to have to say hard no on the canal. The technology we have right now is impossible. I can't see the canal sooner than 21st century technology because we need machines and explosives to dig through the hard bedrock. Plus we would need walls for the canal so the dirt doesn't collapse in on itself. And we would need pumps connected to powet plants to raise the water in the middle of the canal to get it going. Have you ever dug a mote for your sand castle on the beach only to find the water doesn't reach the back unless you dig really deep? That's one of the big problems we face with this canal.

Okay, I was expecting issues with the agreement between /∞/ and risu, but I'll try and bring some more clarity to what happened.
You can call me /∞/'s diplomat, I'm not /∞/'s repm Archivebud, but I'll do a better job of explaining the sitution given I'm the one who negotiated risu becoming a protectorate of /∞/ and I was given authority by Archivebud on diplomatic matters. So let me try and clear up misconceptions given our past behavior hasn't been doing us any favors.

First off, the conversation between you and Archievebud is distorting facts by claiming that Risu become a protectorate as a result of a military incursion or gunboat diplomacy. This is clearly not the case, if you follow the records. Specifically the first contact post.

>I didn't see any lore for your thread, so j wanted to see if you guys were interested in joining [/vtwbg/].
The first question was if they were interested in joining /vtwbg/. If they said yes, that ends the discussion and we get another player.

>If not, would you mind if you become a protectorate of /∞/? You're still your own country, but we'd make sure you aren't conquered.
The second question was a direct question and why. No coercion or deception. Again, risu could have said no and the discussion would have ended there. But said they just didn't have anyone who would have the autism to take part. So this lead to a conformation question.

>Then could I get your approval for /∞/ to turn Risu's land into a protectorate where they'd run it for you in game?
Which again, Risu could have declined, but they responded by saying /∞/ could do what they want. In this sitution, one could argue /∞/ could outright annex risu, however /∞/ stuck to the original agreement. /∞/ also intentionally delayed making the announcement of the agreement to see if anyone else in risu had an opinion. But no one did.

So that is how Risu became a protectorate of /∞/.
Also for transparency, I asked in the previous thread as well, but only got the response 'Lore". So I made a second attempt to get a definitive yes or no on if risu wanted to get involve in /vtwbg/, and if not, if they could become a protectorate. No pressure, no show of force, just asking if they wanted to get involved.

>Moving the island to the east.
It was always in the east, this was always the agreement, the fact you are trying to use this as an excuse to open old wounds and time loops makes me question you motives.
However, if it's over the isolationism, it was one of the original justifications, I won't deny that. However the second reason, internal conflict, not only more than makes up for it, but recent events show it's 100% legitimate for how /∞/ still manages to not be a world threat. In fact making risu a protectorate could inflame domestic tensions like >>19952644 >>19954468 suggested.

>advanced technology
Which is now a completely moot point with the introduction of magic and Chuubanite.

As for the canal, It's very clear this will be a multi decade project and I like the idea of the isolationist extremists conspiring with any government that is against the canal's construction attempting to sabotage it, you have to admit that is a good world event. And it would be great to have an event that is not war.

However, I am curious if the world is in 18th century technology, how does everyone nation already know about the canal plans? It strikes me as odd that there's 21st century communication in this game. Can I get a reasonable in game explanation given we're in an era where it takes weeks and months for messages to be sent?

Or the fact why /∞/ constantly gets singled out for everything action they take for the crime of staying involved. When /who/ announced they took over part of /uuu/ and /uuu/ ceased to exist >>/9687899 and /cgl/ openly their declared their plans to conquer their neighbors. >>19299826 it was met with crickets.

I got an idea. Instead of a canal why don't we have a road? It probably won't go into fruition until we can build a steam engine train. I was thinking you can sail to one end.

>> No.19959569

No one is complaining about the acquisition of /risu/ by part of /infinity/ and multiple generals have stated how moving the island is useless.

What others have been questioning you was on how that makes your isolationism a moot point, it all comes down to technology once again, /infinity/ wanted to mantain their technological advantage and used the points of isolation and civil conflict as reasons for why they wouldn't break the world order by just existing, now they just simply declared that they are not isolationist and will act in world affairs.

Magic from the get go is not a full on solution to technology, but a way to supplement those nations that are lacking in it like /meat/, this is why the 1700's was chosen in the first place, as the last time non industrial societies would not be instantly crushed by those that are.

/meat/ here
Considering we have magitech, instead of a canal I propose semi-flying caravans. Maybe floating jsut over 1 meter off the ground.
On flat plains like /risu/'s geography, having caravans is much more efficient especially if we give them floatation magic.
So, instead of a canal the size of china which is a resource sink and waste years of effort, I propose we invest in magitek caravans.
/risu/ can profit off this and their environment wont be permanently destroyed, the triumvirate /nasfaqg/-/#/-/ahoy/ monopoly can be curtailed, and /infinity/ wont have their fingers in other people's cookie jars.

Because from the get-go they announced that they wish to be a militaristic nation, developed their lore in such a way, never demanded advanced technology or special treatment citing "isolationism" as if it was a "concession" or they were "nerfing themselves".

In other word, they are just a militaristic nation, who at this point just write a ton of army lore without invading anybody.

Infinity, on the other hand, is a two-faced, lying cancer of a nation that's seeping life out of this very thread. It's very clear that you cannot trust Kronies, since the so-called "isolationist" thread is the single most militaristic and imperialist thread in this world right now, mass-meddling in affairs of other threads.

I saw you discuss in /infinity/ how you shouldn't say that /infinity/ won't get any more protectorates since you had hoped /mep/ would also fold due to inactivity. I saw you turn this entire endeavor into an "us vs. them" affair. I saw you openly discuss creating a fucking /risu/ terrain map that'd have a lot of rivers and lakes JUST TO BUILD THE FUCKING CANAL.

>/nasfaqg/-/#/-/ahoy/ monopoly can be curtailed
Why is trade-oriented nations having large volumes of trade passing through them a problem again? Especially since /nasfaqg/ announced they'd have nearly nonexistent tariffs.
Besides, I'm pretty sure that they can just make regular caravans work with a road. The bigger issue is having ships on both sides of the landmass,

>> No.19959957

The canal is impossible until 21st century. Before then it would be more practical to build a railroad to carry goods to the other side instead of trying to dig bedrock with steel. And railroads are impossible for a century. We can clear land roads to carry goods by oxe and wagon, but it'd still be faster to sail around the peninsula. I've been dealing with logistics crisises since I took interest in this project for /nasa/. The only advice I can give is focus on research and development for land vehicles instead of wasting resources and man power digging out a canal. Work smarter, not harder.

The locomotives were given a large, resounding "no" from the thread before, and steam engines were questioned because of the locomotives.

And now we're in a problem with time loops where everyone else doesn't want to be in the industrial revolution. The industrial revolution is the beginning of globalization where everyone relies on nations with machines and factories for goods and weapons. I can see both sides. Advancing the age is going to demolish independence of smaller nations or else they embrace technology. Chuubanite is suppose to prevent industrial grade tech. However if Chuubanite is going to cause another industrial revolution then we're going to have to nerf Chuubanite to no longer be a fuel source.

Dunno to who this was addressed too, but I feel like I fall under this category (me >>19942460), so let me explain my position. I am not advocating to move the island, but question the "agreement" that the island is to be there.

I've already made my case, it was a placeholder, the "popular vote" cited is not placement but for mainland/island, and the last time it was brought up Neutralfag was forced to resign, the OP had an explanation of events, and then the matter was dropped entirely. If there is further development/discussions on island placement I'd like to hear it.

>However, if it's over the isolationism, it was one of the original justifications, I won't deny that.

This is why I'm bringing this up. It's because other people brought it up. They made the Western placement proposal in exchange for isolation and canal. /infinity/ tried to shut down with their evidence that I feel is disingenuous (see above).

That's why the West/East should be on the floor, so it can finally be discussed (in good faith) and have actual non disingenuous records of /infinity/ being in the East.

I got a compromise for /infinity/. I think we're going to have to remove the combustible elements of chuubanite from the world completely. Yes this also means chuubanite can no longer be used as rocket fuel for /nasa/ and we're stuck in the crater. However /infinity/ can create mechanical wind-up mechanisms that have "time dilation" thanks to chuubanite engraved springs. This could give /infinity/ the ability to use wind-up clock technology like fuel. You can freeze time for the wind-up clocks when not in use so you can have better control of your ships and locomotives. And to refuel you wind the clock back up and freeze time. To activate time stops on the gears you need to understand rune programming. Such technology would be restricted to the church as much of runes require prayer to use.

As for /nasa/ we're just going to have to figure out rune programming on our own to manipulate gravity to move the station. This means we're looking at 6 months to a year before we reach breakthroughs on how to move the station.

>by claiming that Risu become a protectorate as a result of a military incursion or gunboat diplomacy
I didn't say that, in fact I specifically said this wasn't the case, reread the post. What I said was that it can be *percieved* as such.
I've told kronies before and I'll say it again, it doesn't matter what you call your actions, other nations of the world will perceive them in their own way. USA invaded however many countries in the name of freedom, and you've all seen the memes sprouting for that. This will *especially* be the case if said nation is already known to be ahead technologically, meaning they have an edge over others, meaning they are dangerous. I was and still am giving you the benefit of the doubt, that you won't attempt to expand militarily, but you're making this hard.
The argument we're pointing out, and this goes out to you specifically since you've introduced yourself as the diplomat of the negotiations, is that the immediate alternative suggestion was a protectorate. No alliance, union, border freedom etc, but instead reduction of their status.
>Also for transparency, I asked in the previous thread as well, but only got the response 'Lore"

>not only more than makes up for it
Sorry, but I disagree. You said the exact same thing about isolationism and it was written out. This point has lost most of its credibility.
>Which is now a completely moot point with the introduction of magic and Chuubanite.
Not completely, you have access to chuubanite/Vitubium we should have a vote for the name btw too, you know? What it does is help nations that are further back behind the world average age, ie 1750, have a fighting chance for survival if they write the lore for it.
>how does everyone nation already know about the canal plans?
A vessel of an unnamed nation saw your fleet of "boats of iron and smoke" approaching risu, took interest, followed you, anchored a bit after you, overheard your conversation, left after you, went to their nation/nasfaqg as their interests were in jeopardy, informed them, then informants were sent to other nations in the hopes the project gets backlash (hint: its working). Does this work for you?

I hope this is an honest oversight, but I would appreciate if you did not blatantly lie.
I was one of the first that argued with /who/ against their initial claim on Hoshiyomia's coastline. They worked a compromise out between them however, so I had no say in the matter. I, and I believe one or two other anons, also called them out on their expansion of land with the acquisition of /uuu/, as well as on their attempts to leech technology from both /nasa/ and /inf/.
/cgl/ I believe stated in their lore they were militaristic, unlike you who claim the opposite, and they struck a deal with one of the nations in their path. I was waiting to see the development of their plans to gauge an appropriate reaction, but I believe they haven't posted an update since. They may have been dissuaded by the amount of timeloops caused by certain posters, may ring a bell, or, well, clock.
>Consistency would be nice
I once again implore you to think about the things you post, and the specific wording you use. This line can be interpretated as you asking for leniency against you as your percieved lenient treatment of other nations. However, it can also mean that you are asking the thread to be as restrictingly harsh against everyone else's suggestions as the percieved harshness against you, and it is the latter point shitposters will use to go to other threads and blame you for aggression against them, like what happened with /yeah/, not to mention it would make you look like children throwing a tantrum.

I've repeated previous posts of myself a lot in this one post, not sure if you've been ignoring them or just forgot. In any case, let me clear up one more thing, again:
The shitstorms caused during the island timeloops, no matter if you are blaming a (couple of) schizos or not, have tanked your credibility. You are supposed to be building it back up. Removing isolationism, one of your key arguments on why your island is where it is today that you were defending during the timeloop period, from your lore, only further damages your credibility. Then you have the gal to say you are being unfairly treated. Please, look a bit inwards instead of shifting all the blame on others.

It could be why chuubanite bonds with anything easy. Its energy solidified as matter. Gunpowder can still work as the combustion from the saltpeter can activate the chuubanite grains to release their energy but the chuubanite doesn't burn. It does nerf your guns where you have to clean them more often. I'm not sure how this can be used for rocket fuel as that's made with liquid oxygen.

Principal's Log:

We have successfully recovered the meteorite that landed north of /nasa/ station. Fortunately for us the atmoshere burned away the impurities of the Chuubanite... Or so we thought. It turns out this meteorite is unlike the chuubanite ore /who/ and /infinity/ digs up where it bonded to metal. Our scientists theorize the impact itself purified the meteorite, not the burning of impurities.

This dramatically changes our plans. Rather than discover a chemical component that we can mix with anything. So rocket fuel is no longer on the table. What we have is an energized rock full of energy. This could be why the last sample we had in the station exploded. We over energized the stone with lasers. Still this is a fantastic opportunity to study the kinetic potential of this chuubanite meteorite. We're going to have to talk to other nations on how exactly chuubanite works.

How could this work for flamethrowers? I was waiting until we finalise its properties before writing lore for it, but I was thinking something along the lines of finding Vitubium bonded with rocks leftover from lava from our volcano, processing them into a combustible/flammable material, and expend it as fuel.
Would this change make Vitubium rocks/crystals be unmeltable/indestructible, and used as a form of natural battery of sorts? In such a case, would they still combine with other elements to make different minerals or be their own pure rocks/crystals?

That could potentially be solved by having the rocks hold very small capacity for heat, once they hold enough energy instead of exploding they just degrade and deform to dust, so large concentrations of chuubanite would be very rare or not existent at all.

Not the anon that suggested the move, just the one against it's dimissal. But I believe the reasons are:

I think a loreposts solves the latter, but waiting for the original proposer to comment

>> No.19963605

What do you think of the section on heat in the chuubanite proposal?

>As mentioned before, I propose chuubanite would passively lose energy by radiation. A portion of this radiation would heat the chuubanite up to a certain limit, not much higher than the human body temperature. In addition to this passive heating, there would be a way to cause a piece of chuubanite to heat up even more, up to some limit. This could be used in the making of chuubanite based heaters or even chuubanite powered forges, depending on what temperature the upper limit to this heating is set to be. This limit should be below that which would melt chuubanite.
>If the system is glyph-activated, there could be a set of glyphs that each set the target temperature of the chuubanite object to a certain value (One should not be able to stack heating glyphs to exceed the maximum temperature limit).
>If the system is contextual activation, the upper temperature limit could be either dictated by the activator substance’s ability to withstand heat, or it could be set to some arbitrary value. For this, I would propose that the state of the element is important as well: Element in a solid form will produce a different reaction from the same element in liquid or gaseous form. This is so that one cannot abuse the system by enclosing the activator substance inside a vessel of chuubanite, which would then cause the chuubanite to heat up indefinitely. Now the chuubanite would only heat up to the point where the activator substance is about to start melting, and then stop.

We have a proposal for the canal issue, just that our representative should make the presentation as not to be doubted of false-flagging. He is sleeping because of his time zone. We don't want to derail the thread, can't you work on other things meanwhile? We are not going to to be headstrong about this, we will try to search for a solution for all the perceived problems, ok? We're trying to be part of the world and create fun things on it, that why we're revisiting our isolation stand, we're not playing a war game, we don't want to be imperialist.

Not trying to restart timeloop, I've said it multiple times. The evidence for the East is not enough to dismiss the Western claim. So we should just vote it to the East and end it there. Trying to re-defend the past dismissed evidence is restarting the timeloop

>> No.19963983

So your complaint is the process and not the end result. We've already fully explained how things remained balance since we're always at internal conflict and this works with our lore given the amount of schizos there are. So you're clinging to isolationism as a reason is irrelevant.

As for all your other claims, I was not involved in them, including whatever conversations with /mep/ occurred, but given they're now participates in this general, that's also a moot point and as i mentioned before I am in favor of limiting how many countries we can turn into a protectorate.
The 'us vs them' is something you are creating and others are currently exploiting with unfortunate results. As for your final claim, show us it and if it got any support from /∞/. It feels like you're trying to portray us as some group scheming world domination when we're just staying dynamic with events. Unless I'm being kept out of the loop, and everything /∞/ wanted was accepted, we'd just be trading among our allies and chilling with our steampunk tech knowing we can protect ourselves and our allies.

Pandora's box has already been opened and I'd rather we reward creative thinking. Plus for all of the stuff we've done, it's still grounded in science.
The only reason we'd experiment in magic would be to create counter measures, since I don't like the prospect of having kronies teleported into a desert.

No matter what, people are still going to perceive the worst case scenario for /∞/ so no matter what they do, people are going to have a grievance. As for the argument of the process, risu could have easily said no at any step.

>Can you clarify this part, which previous thread?
The previous risu thread.

>This point has lost most of its credibility.
The current timeloop and current thread activity discredit you.

>Not completely, you have access to chuubanite.
We'd have to discuss how it would be used, but given our steampunk tech, we'd use any chuubite to create defensive measures against any offensive cubbinite. That's my personal opinion though so it has to be polled.

>I believe one or two other anons, also called them out on their expansion of land with the acquisition of /uuu/
But it got nearly as little blow back over it and every action scrutinized.

>/cgl/ I believe stated in their lore they were militaristic, unlike you who claim the opposite, and they struck a deal with one of the nations in their path.
The difference is we haven't taken any aggressive stances with our military and our one claim was done through diplomacy.

>and it is the latter point shitposters will use to go to other threads and blame you for aggression against them
Honestly, everyone needs a tripcode who interacts in this thread in order to weed out bad faith actors who are against what /∞/ does for the sake of it and those who have legitimate grievances. Obviously I won't speak for Archivebud, but I would personally do a compromise where we abandon the canal system to create a rudimentary railway system that connects the coasts of Risu since that is within our technology sphere and we can hammer out a compromise over how it's exactly done at a later date assuming it's agreed upon by /∞/ since this is just my personal opinion.

Regardless, the biggest problem is the fact that /∞/ cannot act without making any massive concessions, having to need approval from the rest of the world, or what we're seeing now, reopening old timeloops. Ironically, based on how /∞/ acts, if we were given everything we wanted, he'd just be minding our own business trading with people want our stuff, building cool things for the sake of it looking cool or collapsing into a violent civil war.

I've said my points, I'll wait on archivebud and we'll negotiate from there.

>> No.19964101

The stones in Sakuraun are lava stones. They're charged by geothermal energy. Whatever applications Sakuraun can have for sun stones minus solar energy can work with anything really.

That can work when we're in orbit. However we need to still lift the station back into orbit first. This is where liquid oxygen is necessary. Chuubanite could be experimented on for cold-storage properties. If we can make chuubanite into dry ice houses then we can make liquid oxygen.

We still need to define what glyphs and runes actually do. I touched on this as programming instructions, which is as simple as electric engineering a microprocessor. And I know there's a risk that if chuubanite can boil water then the steam engine is inevitable. I'm looking for applications that would make chuubanite more convenient than steam in some ways.

Been thinking about how chuubanite furnaces can work. They still need outside energy like burning coal to heat up. However they can retain energy longer than other substances. Question is can this also work in reverse. Because if it can then /nasa/ can use chuubanite to create sub-zero tanks to liquify oxygen and helium. We can also make liquid nitrogen and dry ice. Which means we can also make refrigeration possible for transporting perishables. We still need to advance to the next age before portable refrigeration is possible but we can make ice houses to store ice during the summer. Thoughts?

Maybe some will get a kick out of this, here is the world displayed with a cubic projection, which is what I'll use to render it, to avoid cylindrical projection-related deformation.

But Iwant your feedback because it's more important than anyone elses here.
Do you think it's a good or bad idea given it's going to run through your country. and you'd have to deal with any implications and influence you'd get from the trade route it establishes.

It's even funnier because they both replied to a guy from nasfaqg, me.

/nasa/ is guilty as charged with memes. /nasa/ uses Sana memes with our main export being bread, pastries, and flour. We also have bread dog robots that are edible and huggable.

ok ok. one of the things i plan for /risu/ to be is a country that loves nature. If your going to make a canal then you better cause as little deforestation as possible. Risuners will definitely expect some trade in return for use of their land as you would expect. Anything else you would like to know?

Don't trust anyone who says they are from /infinity/. People have their reasons to mistrust them. Wait for the /infinity/ tripfag before making your move

The spice must flow, brother.
To be fair, /nasfaqg/ has an in-built 'tripcode-like' identifying feature if really need be in the form of posting one's wallet. It's rarely actually needed though, only if someone wants to make a statement.

>> No.19966817

Risuner, you should wait for the actual Kronie representative to work something out, current corncernts regarding the canal is "no tech for it yet"

>> No.19966903

Risuner, for the love of god, now that you're here don't turn yourself into /infinity/'s vassal, be active as your own independent thread.

>> No.19966970

I'm still Gramps /inf/, sigh, the other anons are right, you should wait for Archivebud (btw, all my post said the same thing), he is our representative, he has a tripfag and the logo of infinity. You can also talk to us in our thread if you want.

I was under assumption the /inf/ acquisiton was a done deal. My mistake. There just was a shit ton to read and i got a bit confused. Until the official kronii rep appears I am taking control of /risu/ and declaring it as an independant state. Lore coming soon im writing it in a notepad document as you all read this

>> No.19967171

If /infinity/ manages to bring in an independent /risu/ to this thread, I'll consider it one of the very few positive accomplishments they've made.

It was a done deal, you're talking with antis.

No, the poles are now empty, connected as a giant hole.

It is possible, but it'd actually require 4:1 map ratio for a toroid to work.

My plan for now is to leave the South Pole as a polar ocean with an ice shelf and the North Pole has some land in the continuation of the schizo wastelands, though how far up this goes is as yet undecided. It's probably all covered by an ice shelf though. Should fit with Climateanon's analysis.

the current settlement is what you left off (protectorate of /infinity/), but if you want to change that you should negotiate it directly with the Kronies and their representative, not with anyone else. That is all.

Coming only to ignore a deal that was closed off gives a bad first impression desu. You should go talk to the clock representative.

Still Gramps from /inf/, Archivebud is not up yet but Risuer is welcome to talk to us in the thread. That being said, nothing will be official until Archivebud announces it here. We won't get too political there, annexation was never our objective.

That's a good precedent that will won't bit us in the ass.
