    Very true there is no "formal" UN, but as I mentioned in my first post:

    PTWDemo game strictly in the public forum, which I will lovingly refer to as the United Nations

    And while schmoozing in this great United Nations that has been set up
    There is no U.N. Any evidence to the contrary is the product of a derranged mind.

    Make no mistake, I am not desiring to throw my hat into the fray and join up with any nation. I am quite satisfied stolling now and again through this United Nations and following the live actions through this smoky window. There is no need or desire on my part to get any more involved with the millitary or politics of the world which would undoubtedly take me farther away from my other interest and pursuits.

    And while schmoozing in this great United Nations that has been set up, I felt it constructive to the game as a whole to give Vel encouragement to continue what he has begun as once he made his presence known, I could feel a change in the general mood of the citizens of the world, a change for the better, and a possibility of less estranged relations between the nations.

    And before Vel could feel that he wasn't making headway, as certainly arguments and beliefs are still quite strong, I felt it would be beneficial to draft a letter of support so that Vel could continue his mission and lift the spirits of all involved in the United Nations. Having seen many of the other Stormians fight the bitter fight only to become burned out and give up, I hoped an open letter to Gathering Storm from an outsider as myself would not only engender a desire in Vel to continue his pursiuts, but to also give a place for other members of the United Nations to do the same.

    And as I look around now in the halls of the United Nations, I see this letter was not written in vain.

    And bless you UnO who was privy to this upcoming writings and waited for the letter to come to light before sending his sentiments as well. Your restraint has not been overlooked.

    An open letter?

    To the Masters of Glory of War and the Infidel Masses of Neu Demogyptica,

    lay down your arms so the Blessed Legions of Spain and Stormia may exorcise you all the more efficiently. Once that is done then you may return to your dank pits.

    Amen.

    Hmmm .. I like the more direct approach.
    Something like this ...

    .......Just know, Glory of War, that every laughing, insulting, arrogant, blaming, snotty, underhanded, wretched post that your snide little fingers have written has been read by my people.....

    .. Now that's what I call writing

    Yes, while I do truly know that Vel's words are little more than poppycock it is nice to finally have an intelligent adversary appear amongst the feathered Storm of Chicken.


    (No, you read this post right. I have no clue what I posted either. )

    I had knowledge that this thread was comming, so I waited until now.

    I fully agree with badams that there has been a certain eloquence and flow to the posts that Vel has made lately that have made them a pleasure to read, and have added something intangible that GS has lacked up to this point.

    Despite the fact that I agree with little that you have stated, Vel, I would like to say, nice job and please continue.

    To the worthy and noble Badams, UN Observer:

    Kind words indeed....a gift not often bestowed to the embattled Stormian fold, and I thank you for them!

    I realize that sometimes (and perhaps often...tho I certainly hope not), in my attempts to make my views known, I may say things...phrase things that make others squirm uncomfortably.

    An advisor finds his success, however, by speaking the truth as he understands it, even when those truths are unpopular and difficult to voice.

    To do otherwise irrepairably damages ones credibility AS an advisor....for what value does the advice hold if it is anything less than absolute honesty and forthrightness?

    And this is the vantagepoint from which I speak. Not out of a desire to ever claim "the high" or "moral" road, but simply in my unceasing quest to be a valuable and effective advisor....an unofficial position in the team which I dearly love....primarily because I have never been one popular with authority figures, and such an amorphous position gives me wide latitude to speak my mind frankly and openly, without particular regard that the views expressed may not be wildly popular.

    Again, it....comes with the job, and I accept that....both the good and the bad.

    Let me also say that I fully support a United Nations resolution, and would even be interested in playing a part in seeing another such resolution drafted, in the hopes that this, and future conflicts might benefit from such an August Body if given officiality and tangible form, and even if not, then I will continue to speak my case before you all, and bear out the truth of my words with my own actions as I ply my trade in the service of Stormia, and now too, in the service of Spain.

    She WILL be strong and free once more, despite the best efforts of her enemies, and on that day, those who cried "propaganda!" and mocked my words will be left looking foolish indeed, and although that side effect of these conversations will draw a smile, it was never the original intent of the words themselves....only to let the United Nations of the world know that Spain has a partner now....an ally....not a master, save for her own Worthy King.

    Wayward son of Stormia
