Long overdue Greetings from a Raven

Hello everyone,

My name is Raven - I'm better known as Lord Ravenclaw, currently Delegate of The North Pacific.

For four years, my nation, "The Imperial Crown" - half of its life - has resided in the Desert Lands of Osiris. Until recent events, which tore the heart from the still beating body that is Osiris' community, and proceeded to shred it into pieces while it tore down the very community and establishment that had been built - with my diplomatic and political credibility two and a half years past, while spouting nonsense about security and necessity.

Clicking the "Tired of Life in Osiris" button was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made for this game, and it is one that I have agonised over for a long time.

You could say, I'm seeking a fresh start, so I can look at my nation and smile over happier memories than the sad ones that cling to it.

I'll give some background, since some may be wary of me (which is rather common these days). I am a well known neutral, with independent leanings and have only been involved with gameplay a handful of times - one raid with the old Osiris military on Nazi's three years ago, three or four defences as part of The Grey Wardens, part of the Coalition which helped liberate tSP in 2013 and more recently I was present at the liberation of Warzone Australia with KoA and TNP forces. In addition, I am the founder of the region known as Kingdom of Alexandria, and have been part of NationStates for eight years, as of about a week ago.

I have fond memories of encountering Almonaster over the years, most recently at the World Fair. I registered on this board sometime ago, with a hope that I could see more to NationStates than the limited environments I had while as a Diplomat in service to Osiris, TSP, TEP and then TNP.

So, yes. Nice to meet you all, and I hope to actually find a chance to learn more about your historic region and its community.

Hi Raven.

Sounds like you are here with heavy heart, so I won't burden it more with silly, relentless Canadian humour and spam. No promises for further down the track though :evil: :P

....nor what will follow this post ;)


Truly, I hope you find good respite here, when you just want some fun down time with good friends, science time, art time, or interesting article time. we have something of each.
You are welcome in Canada :cananim:

Thank you so much :)

Some of my closest friends in NationStates are Canadian (Diamete and Feirmont), I actually have a fairly large Commonwealth membership in Alexandria's cabinet, which is nice since they are just a joy to be around.

Above all else, I'm happy to just be somewhere new where I can explore and discover the history of this fantastic community. This forum was on the list of NS places I should visit given to me by McMasterdonia last year since even he said I needed to go out and explore more places (he was surprised that I was already registered here at the time though!)

It would not be a proper Canadian welcome without offering you a moose beer.

Should add a mass of poutine on top of that, perhaps a beaver tail?
