  1. Christo Eucalyptos and his wife, Valentina Eucalyptos-Hansel, arrived and greeted Lady Wenche.
  2. A conference has been convened by the Micras Treaty Organization to discuss the recent Batavian regulations in the Strait of Barbary. All MTO members are encouraged to attend. Secondary to resolving the Barbary Straits situation, the conference also hopes to determine standards relating to maritime claims. As Stormark is directly affected by the Batavian regulations on the Barbary Strait, you have been invited directly and the conference will not begin until a representative from Stormark has arrived. Even though your shipping routes in the area are not disturbed, it is the MTO's desire to establish this treaty for the benefit of all Micras nations to maintain peace and prosperity, as such Stormark's input is invaluable. http://bastionunion.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=697 Thank you, Nathan, Deputy Secretary of the Micras Treaty Organization

    Reports From The SC

    The vote to establish new voting procedures has been successful. Therefore, the first such "Voting Day" will be held on Monday, December 12 (beginning at 12:01AM UTC). The voting period will last until Friday, December 16 (12:01AM UTC). While not every Monday will begin a voting period, MTO Representatives are encouraged to begin checking the MTO every Monday in the event of a vote or to debate on other measures previously introduced. The vote on Monday is in regard to expelling Normark and the Islamic Internet Republic on account of inactivity and removal from the MCS. Debate is currently open. The General Membership Treaty allows for the expulsion of a member with approval from a three-fourths majority of all signatories, therefore all members are encouraged to vote. http://bastionunion.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=244&t=3373 Regards, Nathan Waffel-Paine, Secretary-General of the MTO

    Reports From The SC

    There is currently a vote regarding altering the voting procedures of the General Assembly of the MTO. http://bastionunion.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=244&p=25611&sid=f96c3e51e074305e6ca5697ebfc333f2#p25611 This will basically establish Mondays as "Voting Days" and setting a week-long voting period to ensure MTO members not hosted on the Bastion forum have equal opportunity to participate in the Assembly. Regards, Nathan Waffel-Paine, Secretary-General of the MTO

    A Proposal

    Your Majesty, Thank you very much. Natopia has ratified the Treaty as well. We are currently in the process of ratifying the treaty with Frazenland. When that vote has concluded I will present the MCS with the agreed upon land transfers.

    A Proposal

    That looks fine. I will sign for Natopia. After a signature has been affixed for Stormark I will return to Natopia for ratification by the Frenzy. Signed for Natopia, Lord Nathan Waffel-Paine, Minister of Foreign Affairs

    This is indeed wonderful news for both of our nations. Thank you for demonstrating trademark Storish generosity and goodwill.

    A Proposal

    Greetings to Harald, the Most Generous King, I come to you today with a proposal. My countrymen and I feel that it is in the interest of both our nations as well as the geopolitical future of the Tapfer continent, of which both Stormark and Natopia have a vested interest in. I would like to propose an exchange of land between us. Namely, in exchange for Stormark ceding the Duchy of Port Chloe and Providence Plantations to Natopia, we, in turn, will cede a portion of the County-Palatine of Tapfer Aeterna to Stormark. This portion of Tapfer Aeterna will exceed the area of Port Chloe by nearly 50%, increasing your land. Also, Tapfer Aeterna is unbound on it's eastern border, allowing the expansion of the duchy which is presently impossible. This land also shares a long border with Alexandria, Stormark's greatest ally. Please note that this deal includes Natopia ceding a strip of land to Frazenland, creating a Natopian enclave within them and removing all land borders with Stormark. We wish to maintain as much of a land border with Frazenland as possible. If you are agreeable to these terms, I will draft a treaty to formalize the exchange. Regards, Lord Nathan Waffel-Paine, The Most Honorable The Marquis of Klaasiya, Natopian Minister of Foreign Affairs

    Reports From The SC

    There is currently a vote regarding renaming the Small Commonwealth as the "Yieldlessly Associated Micronational Organization." http://bastionunion.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=244&t=1599 This is hopefully a first step towards revitalizing the image of the SC by removing it from the shadow of Shirerithian dominance by giving it a name that has humor, appeal and interest across the entire sector so that the SC may grow into a truly representative organization for Micras. As this name change requires an amendment to the General Membership treaty, all signatories are being informed of this vote.

    Salutations, I would like to offer an explanation for the recent events happening in Klaasiya, the Natopian region adjacent to the Duchy of Port Chloe. I could not be sure Lord Karisson delivered my response to the concerns he raised on our board so I wanted to personally assure the High Realm that the Bovic Dominion has no intent on waging war or engaging in any other type of armed conflict. I apologize for any personal feelings our actions may have hurt, but they were conducted in regional boards reserved for roleplay and cultural development, not in official government boards and therefore have no bearings on official policy. The aggressive and impassioned demonstrations in Klaasiya are purely internal role playing scenarios. I do apologize for any hurtful things posted in Klaasiya, on the Hub, or said during ART. However I will not apologize for how Natopia approaches the hobby of micronationalism which may be more abrasive than Stormark deems proper. But in turn I will not expect Stormark to change how it approaches micronationalism either, as diversity is a key component to our hobby's interest. The wedge was driven deeper between our nations by hot tempers and mis-matched personalities. Obviously Natopia and Stormark have diverged since the old times of our close friendship since we both disagree with how each other engages in internal scenarios. At the risk of sounding disingenuous I'd like to suggest that Natopia and Stormark embark on "agree to disagree" terms in order to preserve the stability of eastern Tapfer. I'd also like to reiterate my suggestion of new official discussions on a clean slate between Natopia and Stormark to be conducted with new, unbiased, representatives from both sides (I will therefore not be involved in the discussions). Regards,
  11. Nathan

    My favorite was when I designed an exhibit on Haitian vodou flags and I was actually in charge of the exhibit.
