OPR Conducts MOUT Training

The Office Of Preparedness and Response recently conducted Military Operations In Urban Terrain1 training to enhance physical fitness, military readiness, and navigation skills while conducting urban and suburban operations. Cold-weather training and equipment evaluation were also conducted simultaneously to maximize use of the available time in the training environment.

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 servicemember and citizen. OPR is standing by to provide technical advice, referrals to local agencies, and any other aid within our current capabilities.

1. By some definitions of the words military and operations
Unfortunately, due to concerns outside of Talossa, I herby resign from the post of Permanent Secretary for Immigration. I wish @Françal I. Lux the best as MinInterior.

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:

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.

Quoting from another thread, so as to not have that thread move from it's intended purpose to politics

Question: do you really want to overthrow not only the monarchy, but the whole system of government? Please be assured that IMHO those are perfectly valid opinions! But it's been a while since someone has suggested literal anarchy in Talossa. For many of us the system of government - even, for some, the Monarchy - are an essential part of the fun.
I would like to hear the answer to this.

I am unable to confirm or deny these allegations at this time.
That's too bad.  I don't think we should be immigrating anyone who vows to overthrow our government or who says they'll essentially be lying with their citizenship oath.  I hope that, unless this is clarified a bit, that someone will exercise Section 8 on this application.

S:reu Burman, do you intend to try to overthrow the government?

I no longer call myself an anarchist, though my political leanings are still fairly far left. It's not my intent to get into a debate about anarchism outside of Talossa, but I am curious about how an anarchist Talossa would look and what we'd do.

I also want to finish my thought about S:reu Burman's immigration. I'm sure I could be schooled about the history of Talossan politics by those that have been here a lot longer than myself, but it seems like there is precedent for far-left political activity in Talossa. The wiki is fairly light on information, but there was a Talossan Socialist Party that existed as recently as the 46th Cosa, as well as a few others during the Ben era. Like I said in his immigration thread, so long as S:reu Burman will approach any planned otherthrow of the government via legal means and not otherwise break El Lex or the Organic Law, I have no problems with his immigration.
Wittenberg / "Stand Tall, Talossans" but with more notes

I've spent the last day or so working on a rearrangement of "Stand Tall, Talossans". I'm not particularly great at arranging, and if there's anything that can be improved I love suggestions. :)

Also, there's a few things that are kinda funky in the MP3 because Musescore doesn't render the playback perfectly. They're hopefully clear in the score.
The Webspace / Possible bug with verifying wiki accounts
September 13, 2020, 12:20:37 AM
While attempting to verify my email address on the wiki, the wiki, Wittenberg, and the main site all went down for ~5 minutes or so, throwing a 508 "resource limit is reached" error code.

Not sure if that was purely on my end, but I figured I'd pass it on. As far as I'm aware, there's nothing out of the ordinary happening with my local network, and my connection to the wider Internet was unaffected.

Never thought I'd utter the phrase "Oh **** I broke the country", anyway...

Woo, I'm a citizen again!

Now that I can again claim citizenship in our glorious country, is there anything I can do to help out?
