I want to go on a Great Crusade

Day 1,976, 18:20 Published in USA USA by Bucephalus92

Greetings Bros,

Would anyone like to go on a Crusade?

For the past couple weeks I've been logging onto erepublik less and less, partially because my schedule is busier.

Who else is preparing for finals?

However as time went on I realized that my fuller schedule wasn't the only thing that was making me less interested in erepublik. It has also been our lack of a narrative. I don't think we've had a single great campaign since I returned to this game. I thought for a while that SPQR would develop into something but those praising SPQR have been silent for quite a while now. Whether thats because they are (hopefully) just biding their time to make some big move I don't know. What I do know is that I'm bored.

I don't think this is necessarily anyone's fault, but rather the result of our circumstances. When there's a mindless idiot and his horde of minions trying to PTO the country its generally better to focus your efforts on preventing the PTO than embarking on some difficult narrative driven Quest that will take up much of the country's time and effort while the PTO grows stronger. It is also to difficult considering our recently unstable foreign relations. When your alliance situation is uncertain, establishing a good narrative and embarking on a crusade grows increasingly difficult.

I must say however that I am growing more hopeful that such a thing should come about. This is primarily for three reasons. First is because I believe Vanek has done and will continue to do a good job. The second is because hopefully now that we are officially a member of CoT our alliance situation will become more stable. And finally because we have made substantial gains against the PTOers in recent months, and so long as we continue this trend I don't think it could be that long until we are on solid footing domestically, and internationally.

At least thats what I hope for anyway, because otherwise I think this game will become too boring for me. I want to have something to rally behind against, whether its retaking our land from imperialist aggressors, standing ready to kill redcoats, or retaking Lion King, Hello Kitty, and Karmic Taco in the Three Pillars campaign, the times that are the most fun in this game (for me) are when we have a great narrative.

Narrative, it is nothing and it is

Me want a massive real war

I'd like to see the US go for 10/10 bonuses. Some of the most fun we ever had was fighting Spain and Poland.

Bucephalus92 Day 1,976, 19:19

We actually conquered London once, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't mind doing it again

Time for a real campaign

The whole time I was reading, I was going "YES! THIS MAN HAS TASTE!" and I think I only read the article because Kingdom of Heaven.

This said, as a new player, I really want to see some war, a charge across a continent, some glorious conquest, all-or-nothing battles... I'm even tempted to join whatever foreign country to enjoy THEIR wars if this all keeps up, since we don't seem to have them at all. I finally convinced myself to just build strength and wait--it's for my own good, yes... >>

All in favor of an NE on Spain to free Canada and keeping/renting British Columbia (deer region) as a prize?

creitzell Day 1,977, 14:45

I've always thought the most fun was when we were being invaded/wiped.

Bucephalus92 Day 1,977, 18:40

Agreed 100%

Strength and Honour

Please consider this your invitation to visit Glorious Indonesia.


Bucephalus92 Day 1,977, 18:41

I've always considered Indonesia to be a cool place, bit of a language barrier though unfortunately.

TemujinBC Day 1,977, 18:47

In Indonesia, we speak only English. You may, from time to time, see strange words and phrases that are unfamiliar to you. Please do not fear. We call this "Maho Bahasa", and it is quite frequently used throughout Jakarta, Bandung, Sumatra and of course Taman Lawang. Our President, Canester, is a proud supporter of "tunjukkan pantatmu in Taman Lawang". And it is considered a great honor to send him a PM and remind him of this fact.

But if you ever worry about the language barrier in Indonesia, allow me to alleviate those fears.

For in Indonesia, we are all truly Top Sexy Maho.

And in that, we share the same language.

Kingdom of Heaven was biased.

In reality most of the inhabitants were enslaved, and the ones who were freed were RANSOMED off. In the movie Saladin so kindly allows everyone to just go on and leave.

AGREED 100%. And STFU Ajay
