Wittenberg / Happy Pride Month!
June 01, 2023, 03:22:30 PM
June is Pride Month. The LGBTQ community is alive and well here in Talossa, making our nation a diverse and inclusive place.

For those of you celebrating in America, I recommend that you do so with caution. Have fun but stay safe.

What's the Talossan word for "racing"? I want to make a Kinetic Racing logo in Talossan. I know what Kinetic is, "Chinetic" but I don't know what Racing would be.

Thanks in advance.

I apologize for the delay. Here are the proposed changes to the club.

Club Name
Our organization has long been know as the Toxophilite Club. However, I propose that we change the club's name to El C'hlub Saxhitourófil to reflect our Talossan heritage. Furthermore, it has come to my attention that there are other clubs that already use the Toxophilite monicker. Given that the proposed name is quite complicated, I also propose that we abbreviate it to ECS.

This club has created to preserve and promote the study and practice of "traditional" archery. While I still believe that is a noble goal, it limits our ability to be competitive at a micronational as well as macronational level. Additionally, "traditional" archery is dedicated discipline within competitive archery and our definition is incongruent with the current competitive rules.

Therefore, I propose that the club be divided into three separate yet equal divisions.

The "Deport" or Sport Division will be dedicated to modern competitive archery and all competitions will be contested under World Archery Federation (WA) rules.

The "Traditional" or Traditional Division will adhere to the rules set forth by the Traditional Archery Society except in cases where WA Traditional rules take precedence.

The "Primitiveu" or Primitive Division will be dedicated to the preservation of ancient archery traditions and practices. This division is non competitive in nature and is dedicated to the more academic side of archery.

Let's discuss this for the moment. I'd also like your input on club structure. I'm looking forward for your input.
I will be posting the Club Bylaws on May 1st. All members will have the opportunity to discuss the posted bylaws and suggest amendments. Once the bylaws are approved, we will vote to enact said bylaws.
We haven't done a Virtual Shoot in awhile and, I'll be honest, the last shoot didn't go very well.

Instead of organizing a month long competition, I think we should organize a one day event. Maybe we could hang out, chitchat and do some shooting in real time.

I was thinking we could do this on the 6th of May, 2023. Planning this far in advance gives us some time to practice and figure out how we can socialize during the event.

Let me know if this works for all of you.
Fiôvâ / Cuntat Manáweg - REPOST

Below, you will find my preliminary map for Cuntat Manáweg.

Additional Information

The county seat, hereafter referred to as the 'Siada', will be El Proïs.

The county pennent, also know as the 'Vexilour', will be a triangular swallow tail with the top half being white and the bottom half being green.

The county colours are green and white. Green represents prosperity while white represents peace.

If this requires a proposal to make things official, I'm more than happy to write such a proposal.

I initially started this club to promote traditional archery in Talossa and I intentionally excluded crossbows. For whatever reason, I've always thought that using a crossbow was "cheating" because it requires far less training and practice to be proficient with such a weapon.

However, crossbows have existed for a long time. They first appeared in China around the 7th century BC and emerged in Greece around the 5th century BC. One can assume that the crossbow wouldn't exist without the invention of the hand bow.

Here's my question for all Toxophilites: Should we include crossbows in our organization or should we focus solely on archery?

I need someone to send me a Club invite. I'll DM you my friend code. Just shoot me a message. (Pun only slightly intended)
Fiôvâ / Question concerning townships.
February 02, 2023, 02:04:44 PM
I've been working on naming the townships of Manaweg County and I've stumbled upon an issue.

If you look at the map with the townships, there is an unnumbered section in Manaweg County. It's located south of township 69 and east of township 65. I'm unsure which township this unidentified section belongs to. Logically, this section should be part of township 69 given that a large wholesale company occupies both township 69 and the unnumbered section. However, that section could very well be part of township 65 and I'm simple unaware of some law that makes it part of said township.

It's not the most pressing matter but it is something I'd like to address.

What are your thoughts on this topic? Is there a law that I am unaware of? Am I investing too much time and effort on this subject?

I think the answer to the last question is "yes".  ;D
During the 1800's, longbow archery saw a resurgence in England. Interestingly, in a time when there were few options for women, archery was considered a healthy pastime.

I stumbled upon this article while searching for the history of the archer's tassel and I found it very interesting. Having read the descriptions and seeing the illustrations, I think I'll stick to jeans and t-shirts. ;D

Archery is a great hobby but it can also be dangerous. Follow these simple rules to keep yourself and others safe.

1. Only point a bow and arrow in a safe direction.

2. Only nock an arrow when it's safe to shoot.

3.Be aware of your target and what is in front, immediately behind and beyond it.

4. Only shoot when you have a safe range and a safe backstop or background.

5.Never loose a bow without a nocked arrow. This may damage the bow and can injure the archer.

6. Do not shoot arrows straight into the air.

7. Wear protective equipment when shooting.

8. Use caution when handling arrows.

9. Inspect equipment prior to each use. Repair or replace any worn or broken equipment immediately.

10. Store archery tackle in a safe and secure manner.

How the hell do you say "kicker" in Talossan?!

I struggle with Talossan. I look up "kick" because I know that's going to be there. It's a verb, great. How do I make it a noun?

Before you lambast me, I know little to nothing about language.
El Glheþ Talossan / Language assistance please

I'm working on a glossary of archery terms in Talossan. Some of the terms have been easy to find while others are a bit more problematic.

Archery is typically shot in "rounds" with each round consisting of multiple "ends". I don't know what term would best be used for a round and an end. Your help is greatly appreciated.

We will be using the Archery Club app for this month's virtual shoot.

You can use any equipment that have however, boosters are prohibited.

Each pairing will have one week to post their scores. You can post your scores below.

If an archer is unable to shoot for any reason within the one week time frame, they must forfeit the game and points will be awarded to their competitor. If both archers are unable to shoot within the one week time frame, no points will be awarded.


Each game will be contested under "best of three" rules. Therefore, each game must have a minimum of two matches.

Each match will consist of two rounds. If the scores are tied after two rounds, there is a third tiebreaker round.


One point will be awarded for each round won.

A bonus point will be awarded for a "shutout" (i.e. one archer winning the first two rounds of a match).

Maximum points awarded per match = 3 points.

Welcome to the Toxophilite Club Headquarters

The Toxophilite Club is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the skill, practice and sport of traditional archery.

What is "traditional" archery?

Traditional archery is often defined by the equipment used. The most common bows used for traditional archery are the longbow and the recurve bow. While the longbow is often associated with traditional archery, the recurve bow is considerably more popular.

The longbow and recurve bow might be the most common bows used today but they are not the only options. The history of archery goes back thousands of years and cultures around the world have developed their own archery traditions and equipment. From the simple "selfbow" to the more complex Asiatic "horse bow", traditional archery takes many forms. The Toxophilite Club embraces all of these archery traditions and encourages it's members to explore those traditions.

Is Republican Witt gone? I was hoping to find it online and see when I started the Toxophilite Club. Can anybody help me with that?
Wittenberg / Talossan Street Food
August 16, 2022, 03:42:53 PM
Was watching a program where the host was eating street food in Japan and it got me thinking. What would Talossan street food be like?

For me, street food should be convenient, inexpensive and delicious. What would you consider to be a good choice for Talossan street food?
Wittenberg / Thoughts on Honorary Citizenship.
July 29, 2022, 02:11:16 PM
Has the idea of Honorary Citizenship ever been discussed? Is that something we want to discuss?

I've been watching a lot of Mystery Science Theater 3000 lately and I vaguely remember MST3K was (or maybe it still is) the official TV show of Talossa. I think if anyone would accept an Honorary Citizenship it would be the cast of that show. A citizenship from a crazy little nation going to the cast of a crazy little show.

It's just a thought I had and I was curious what everyone else thought about it.
Wittenberg / Talossan Time zone?
July 04, 2022, 07:54:34 PM
I'm too lazy to look it up. Do we have an official time zone? Is it the US Central Time Zone? Wouldn't it make more sense to use UTC?
