"Civilization is the order and freedom is promoting cultural activity."

- Will Durant


Albion's ridiculous activity levels have not at all declined in recent months, with the daily post count consistently totalling over five hundred posts. Remarkably, this is not actually the result of rampant spam, but can be largely attributed to general discussions, and particularly to our very active role plays. Total post counts for the month usually reach around fifteen thousand, and of these at least three thousand or so are active role play posts. The region as a whole is sitting well within the boundaries for ideal activity levels, and it's good to see this being achieved without an overdose of spam. In fact, we just concluded our participation in National Novel Writing Month, with citizens of Albion contributing to an impressive total word count of 58,862. At this rate, Albion is set to break one hundred thousand total posts before christmas, making it officially one of the most, of not the most, active forum in NationStates.
Following the conclusion of the Falling Leaves Festival, which totalled approximately one and a half thousand posts, Albion has dived right into the next cultural extravaganza. The Albion Ice Festival has been set up to celebrate the winter as christmas approaches, and is already proving even more successful than the last festival, already achieving almost two thousand posts. Aside from the usual spam games, the festival includes a game of werewolf, and a snowball fight which has escalated rather quickly into a full scale ground war, with entire armies clashing in the snow. As always, all are welcome to attend and join in on the festivities.

In roleplay news, trouble is brewing on the horizon of the Founding of Albion. A menace grows in the western isles, bolstered by power from an ancient artifact, and determined to impose their will on an unsuspecting world. Their leader, Emperor Asvars, grows tired of the disorder and corruption of the mainland kingdoms, and increasingly resolves that ultimate peace can only be achieved through overwhelming force. The attack could come any day now, and the mainland appears completely unaware of the impending danger. Will the fiefdoms of Albion stand together against this threat? Or will their past disagreements prevent them from working together? Only time will tell whether they are able to muster a force soon enough to defeat the evil, and drive back the darkness. The fate of the world hangs in the balance.
Meanwhile, an entirely new role play has recently started up in the Crucible, called the Chaos Knights. This is set in the mystical Kingdom of Noviom, a land rife with magic and mystery. Across the Kingdom are groups of talented people who work together to solve the problems of the land, for a fee of course. These groups are referred to as Guilds. Players of this role play are invited to create a warrior of their choosing and style, and join the new Guild called the Chaos Knights. From here, they embark on quests to increase the fame and prestige of the Guild, and of course to make plenty of money. Already, the players have successfully repelled an assault by a giant and a disturbing large number of gnomes, who proved quite the annoyance to the experienced warriors. An active and exciting new role play, new players are always welcome to come over to Albion and join in the fun.

Albion continues to make its presence felt in military gameplay, as the United Imperial Armed Forces continue to march across NationStates unopposed. With up to ten readily available updaters, and twice that number of reinforcers, the Albion Division now contributes the single largest force to the UIAF from any of its member regions, and is able to undertake considerably large operations by itself. To this end, the UIAF recently participated in a series of operations in collaboration with The Black Riders to conquer and secure a number of large regions. Highlights include the tagging of Slavya under a UIAF flag by a force exceeding ten units, and the interference in the refounding efforts in Angola. Our forces also assisted the Black Riders in numerous smaller tagging and delegate removal operations. Only shortly after this, the UIAF actively assisted The Black Riders again in the seizure and subsequent occupation of New Zealand, a region that should be rather familiar with our presence by now. As always, the commitment and professionalism we seek to inspire in our troops shines through in all our operations.
As already stated, Albion is now able to field a formidable force by itself, and recently the Royal Albion Legion was deployed independently of the UIAF in support og the Delegate of Osiris. Albion maintains a treaty and strong diplomatic relations with Osiris, and it was our pleasure to assist our allies in their delegate transfer. At the moment, Albion forces comprise the single largest group deployed to assist Osiris, outdoing all other regions that moved troops in. Albion always stands by its friends, unflinching and undaunted, against any foe.
Albion News Network
The following may or may not be true, which is true is for you to decide
- It was recently decided that welcome threads for new arrivals to the forums were not meant to be short threads with lots of "Hey!"s and "Welcome's, but rather were destined to become 7 pages of synonyms and dipping people in chocolate. Apparently, you'd have better luck predicting the AI singularity than having a normal introduction thread in Albion. Probably.
- The unsuspecting citizens of Albion were subjected to capital pun-ishment! Facepalms were abundant as the following lines derailed many a thread:
Broken pencils are pointless.
I changed my IPods name to Titanic, it's syncing now.
I'm reading a book about anti-gravity. It's impossible to put down.
Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He's all right now.
I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me.
There was a sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center that said 'Keep off the Grass'.
Have you heard about that online origami store? It folded.
What's Forrest Gump's password? 1forrest1
Whiteboards are remarkable.
Did you hear about the guy who got hit in the head with a can of soda? He was lucky it was a soft drink.
Yeah. The list goes on, but you get the point.
Thanks for reading, have a fantastic day!
Always yours,
