    The Great Patriotic War - TI Roleplay in Jin Gwó

    Gliame rolls his eyes, and thinks something along the lines of I DO have a voice, but keeps his mouth shut.

    Well, suppressing increasing anxiety, Gliame gets in line to await his turn...
  3. Do we get a second vote on the actual content of the statement or is this the only authorization? What will the contents of the statement be? Were the fascist members of the region we’re voting about condemning openly present or are their reprehensible views a surprise to the region of residence? Sorry, I literally never follow gameplay issues. @Caelapes or @World Anarchic Union

    Gliame rags along with Sergej, jogging to catch up. “So,” he tries, “how do they decide what kinds of jobs one does?” ( @Normansveldet )

    Though he suspects things will not go well, Fogliame says nothing at the mention of learning to shoot...

    The Great Patriotic War - TI Roleplay in Jin Gwó

    When presented to the officers, Gliamo sighs, looks into the eyes of his captor searchingly, then shakes his head. “I mean, the spy story doesn’t even make any sense, comrade. What kind of story would that be? ‘Twai traitor to his people presents himself to Heibai Resistance, is actually a spy’ only works if you don’t look at any of the details.” A short pause after this. Gliamo delivers the false story beautifully, like the storyteller he is. “Like what I was carrying. Did you even read any of the etchings in my guitar? If you look there’s no way I made those yesterday. Too worn down. If you don’t want my help that’s one thing, but come on now, do I even look like someone who would be attracted to the physical dominance worldview of Yimara?” The last part is delivered with a contemptuous gesture towards his own diminutive form.

    So many people in. This is going to be a nightmare for our dear host. Good luck varfles. I won't make it easier on you I can't wait for the start :p
  9. WAD and COEA are unchanged, but COI and COA have changed. I'm not the judge but I'd consider this nomination to be valid for @World Anarchic Unionand @Freien. I can guess that WAU will accept and Freien decline. In any case, I will decline any nominations with my name on them, but I thank you for your consideration.

    The Great Patriotic War - TI Roleplay in Jin Gwó

    Name: Fogliame d'Inverno [Nick: "Gliame," pronounced "yah-meh"] Age: 22 Origin or Species: Twai Occupation: Hired farmhand during the harvest and planting seasons, founding member of local folk band in high demand at local pubs and events. Physical description: Slim male build, 5'8" (173cm), light skin, hazel eyes, straight black hair that tends to fall across the face, no notable facial hair. Characteristics: Charismatic III, Agile II, Perceptive II, Intelligent II, magical aptitude/spellcaster, lightweight, weak (low strength), persistent (strong willed, will perform low physical requirement tasks for a long time), curious, has difficulty understanding other peoples' perspectives. Abilities: Performance (musical/storytelling) II, survival (firemaking, tent setting, etc), sneak/move silently II, Simple Illusion II, persuasion, bluff, detect magic, investigate II, knowledge (music), knowledge (nature), knowledge (history/lore/arcana). Inventory: Classical guitar in carrying case, guitar care kit (contains strings, tuner, etc., also in case), decent Swiss army knife (pocket), canteen (beltloop), flask (pocket), binoculars (beltloop) Picture: [[Perhaps later; I haven't the time to draw or search atm]] Backstory: Gliame was raised in a traditional Twai household, taking easily to the pacifistic, naturist, and vegetarian outlook of the culture. As such, he spent much of his childhood outdoors with a small group of friends. He discovered much about the natural world through his own exploration in this way. As the runt of the family, and the youngest of 4 sons and 2 daughters, Gliame's childhood was allowed to last longer than those of his siblings. He was sent to school for two years, but resented the walls and the reliance on memorization rather than exploration. He did learn his basic mathematics in that time, how to read, etc., being a relatively fast learner, but he left school to instead lend his labor to the community during the harvests and planting seasons. Reading was a hidden treasure, because absent the structure of standard education, he studied what he wanted about history and folklore, weaving these things into folk songs, and rediscovering and reviving old ones once forgotten. That led him to found a folk group that also experimented with visual tricks to improve their performance. Gliame knew he had some magical aptitude from his childhood explorations, but given focus, he quickly learned to captivate his audience with small visual effects that seemed to be woven of light itself. This period didn't last long, however, as the war shattered the peace on the continent. Gliame sympathizes strongly with the Yaroi, as his own story is one of the imposition of his individual will as resistance to oppression. Although to use the term "oppression" with relation to his own life when compared with the immensity of the real oppression the Yaroi suffer might seem presumptuous to the reader, it doesn't to Gliame. He remains committed to the pacifism of his parents, but felt called to some kind of action by the war. He committed to participate, but has difficulty conceiving of the struggle outside personal terms. That is, he sees his participation as part of personal growth and not as a part of a greater struggle, or an altruistic struggle, against oppression in general. This should strike the reader as a character flaw, but hopefully one that doesn't often lead him to wrong action...

    AT VOTE: Omnibus Charter Amendment III

    Records indicate that @Mesopoto has vetoed the change to tagging requirements for TI embassies, but has not left a justification in the thread here. Vetoes must be submitted with justification to count. If Mespoto justifies their veto, that change will not pass unless they are convinced to change their mind.
  13. pickaxe/wrench is almost cheating... it's like hammer/sickle (lite) :p

    PROPOSAL- Omnibus Charter Amendment III

    I like everything Freien wrote except to exclude the WAD from voting on issues. Part of the reason we elect a WAD is to help guide us. We don't all spend all the time looking at everything. When the WAD has an opinion, they should share it. That's what they were elected by us to do. I also want to point out that since we use a consent model instead of a majoritarian model, the WAD's ability to influence things unduly is quite severely limited from the outset.
