In that case, I believe @Antaglha Xhenerös Somelieir is the new Chair of the Council of Governors.

In that case, let the voting begin. If you would rather not have your vote made public, then feel free to PM or email me unless there is a different procedure I am unaware of @Eðo?

Given that situation, I reopen the floor for nominations.

That said, given the text of El Lex and the Cézembrian constitution, something doesn't match up here. El Lex states that the Governor-General, in this context, is the leader of the Council elected by the rest of the Council. The Cézembrian constitution refers to a Governor-General appointed by the King under a provision of the OrgLaw that I cannot find. I'm not a lawyer, and especially not the lawyer for the Government, but that doesn't make much sense.

I have been informed that it is now my role as Interior Minister to organize this Council. The roll has been called, all necessary seats filled, and a chair nominated, so I believe a vote is required. Past that, El Lex is very unclear is to what role, if any the Interior Minster is to play in the functioning of the Council, so unless my involvement is required I shall watch from the sidelines.

Trying to come up with these without sounding like a jerk is difficult...

If I had to pick, I'd go with intelligence, duty, and justice.

Wittenberg / Talossan Video Gaming

Would anyone be interesting in playing video games with your fellow citizens? It wouldn't have to be anything serious or competitive, (though that's certainly an option), but I'd like to get a group together if people are interested.

A few options running through my head are: Stardew Valley, Among Us, Tabletop Simulator, and there's always Cards Against Humanity. Another possible option that might work well is Warzone (not Call of Duty), which is similar to Risk but is free and can be played much like chess-by-mail in that you would have a set time to make your move and we wouldn't all have to be online at the same time. I'm open to pretty much anything though.

I've also made a group on, which is here:

Pending my appointment by the Regent, I submit my resignation as Permanent Secretaries for Immigration and Webmonkey Business and NUMBskullery.

I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve the Nation, and hope the Cabinet will be able to put up with my learning the new role.

I remain amazed at the raw volume of work there is to be done, and what you've gotten done so far. I still have a lot of reading to do.

When you get those Støtanneu archives online, I'd be very interested to take a look. I was looking for a specific article from 1996, and basically gave up because I assumed the only person with a copy was Ben.

My apologies for not getting back to you sooner.

I like that a lot, and while I was considering another possibility after reading through the old thread I'm not entirely sure that would pass muster.

Is there a site where I can play around with tincture and blazon options anymore?

Would music be permissible? I might be able to get something recorded.

OPR would also like to note that despite any evidence to the contrary, this was planned in advance and absolutely not a result of loss of power to the OPR Barracks as a result of the weather.

Armed Forces / OPR Conducts Readiness Exercises

For Immediate Release
Col. Adam Grigoriu

OPR Conducts Readiness Exercises

The Office Of Preparedness and Response recently conducted a readiness exercise. From 2100Z 15 NOV 2020 to 2000Z 16 NOV 2020, OPR personnel tested our capability to function in an operational environment with confounding environmental factors with minimal power, equipment, and personnel. No serious deficiencies were noted, and minor issues with communications equipment were noted and have since been rectified. Practical training exercises in the mitigation of serious weather-related natural disasters were also conducted.

OPR would like to use this opportunity to remind the wider Talossan Defense Ministry and Talossan citizenry in general that preparedness is the responsibility of every service member and citizen, and that given the current issues facing Talossans at home and around the world, we all must do our part. Combatting the novel coronavirus is an utmost priority for OPR and we lend our invincible moral support to those on the front lines. If there is any aid OPR personnel may lend to the Talossan civilian government, Talossan citizens, or Cestours in our area of operations, we stand ready and willing to assist. MOD personnel are advised to send their requests via normal channels.

I think that would look quite good, honestly. Is there a possibility of including an officer's sword?

The Lobby / Re: [TERP] Interior: 'deed poll' names used during immigration
« on: November 05, 2020, 02:31:19 PM »
I haven't been in the job very long, but in the event it sheds some light on the issue at hand this is the rough process I use.

1. Does the profile exist and is it something I can access? I had a case recently where an applicant sent a link that was behind a login page, and one where they sent a dead link citing privacy concerns. The first case ended up being reviewed by Ministreu Grischun, and the second refused to provide further information was was thus rejected.

2. Does the name match? If not, as has also happened recently, I send out a request for further information.

3. What site is the account on, how old is it, and how active is it? This is the critical one. While sure, it is possible to make fake accounts on legit sites that have enough activity to look real, it's quite difficult. The date accounts are created is generally pretty public, and it'd take a lot of work to make an account years in advance and then seed it with activity. If an account is new or doesn't look legit, then I'll ask for further info. or forward the case up to Ministreu Grischun

4. At any point if I'm not confident it's legit I'll request further information or forward the case to Ministreu Grischun. I've bothered him more than a few times with specific cases or unusual issues. Generally, people don't have that much of an issue with providing the requisite info, and if they're cagey those are forwarded.
