Personally I go with Eastern mecha for visual media, like movies, shows, comics, etc. But when it comes to games and novels, I find I lean more towards the western design aesthetic.

Do AT-ST count?
Nah, just kidding, I played a bit of Battletech a long time ago and they're still my favorites.

I mean yeah, an AT-ST 100% counts as a western design. Def mechs, too, I'm so so ingrained in star wars and calling them 'walkers' or 'armor' that I never thought to call them a mech.

I voted 3rd option but I would be up for Among Us

Ditto. It's fair to say option 3 is also yes.

I will mention, for those who did not vote and would like to join in on playing Among Us; feel free to TG me or join the regional discord to find out when we plan to hold the game night.

Hail friends! Nuke Day is here once again and I reach out to you today to join the Horsemen of the Apocalypse! We won last year and plan to do it again!

Count down is here: page=news/2020/09/22/index.html

I welcome you to pin the Factbook to your WFE if you wanna join as a member region.


“We impose order on the chaos of faction evolution. You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.”
- The Stalker when asked the purpose of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

The non-aggression pact, the shameless megafaction, the backroom agreement, these are the tools of cowards and weaklings. True glory rests in the hands of those who succeed on their own merits. Strength is the only currency accepted by The Atom, and only the strong will prosper on N-Day. The Horsemen of the Apocalypse are the greatest faction in N-Day history, that is a simple fact, the highest score ever, the highest faction population ever, the most nukes ever, the most shields ever, the only faction to ever finish at #1 with no radiation, our accolades are limitless, our abilities are peerless. You all know who we are, and you know what we're about. If you wish to free yourself from the shackles placed upon you by bickering cowards and sycophants then seek us out. The ability to choose what is destroyed, when, and in what manner is the exclusive prerogative of the powerful, following the weak will only lead to you being counted among the vanquished.

RP aside, we dominated virtually unchallenged last time, and we're going to win again this time even if it requires us to actually try a little. If you want to be in the #1 faction then join us, accept no substitutes. As [v] herself said, 549 out of 574 Factions finished with a negative score, of the 25 positive scores one was us and the other 24 stayed positive solely because we couldn't be bothered to wreck them.

If you want to flex on all the other nerds that play this game join our Discord now and join our faction once the event starts.

The Count Down: page=news

It's time for round five my friends, The Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride once again.

Hell, Underworld, The Order of the Grey Wardens, Lily, Glass Gallows, Middle Earth, Hippy Haven, and bringers of the apocalypse reunite for round five.

For those not around last time and for those of us in need of a refresher please read over the NS News dispatch here; page=dispatch/id=874170

Simple Version.
1. Join faction to start building production
2. Spend Production on missiles or shields
3. Use missile to strike foes for points, use shields to stop incoming missiles
4. Read ^ dispatch, V read the Plan.
5. Be on the Discord! >>> LinkHERE! <<<

The Plan
This year we show no mercy. Join us and you will be free to attack whomever you wish, we have only targets and make no non-aggression pacts.

Join us on the Linkdiscord for organization hits, or pick your own targets on your own.

Stick to your specialty, if you're military build nukes, if you're strategic build shields. If you're economic do whatever you please. Whatever your specialization be ready to fight at the start, who knows how many losers from last year will try and fail to get revenge on us early.

Altmoras is the Lord of War, leader of the Horsemen, follow his orders.

Like last time we work from the shadows again. We don't start fights or hit randomly, we won't draw blood, we will slaughter them all at once. We will focus on small or inactive groups. We will avoid taking strikes and create truces.

Best way to avoid becoming a repeated target will be to keep our defense strong, if they can't land a strike on us, and we don't attack them, they will move on. While we'll focus on earning points.

I wanna encourage folks to have a 40% offense, 60% defense slant on production. Particularly at the start of the game and while people are more active. At the start we will see a lot of attacks coming in from everywhere, so have your defenses ready. Remember it is better to stop the first attack to discourage future attacks, strikes only get easier later on.

All of this will be organized through our discord.

FAQ
How many nations to use?

Short answer, as many as you can manage, and in relationship to the time you plan to put in.

Everyone should use at least one nation, if you plan to put in the time and effort use a few more. Remember you build resource/"production" only when the nation is in the Faction. Allowing you to buy shields and missiles, more nations means more you can build up, have one nation just for defense, one for missiles, etc.

However more nations also means more targets for our foes to target! So you gotta pull the weight of the nations you use. Lots of inactive targets is bad, what we want is the right amount of active folks making best use of the max production they can handle.

Does this affect my nations stats??

No! There are no long term repercussions.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
And I looked and behold, a pale horse
And his name that sat on him was Death
And Hell followed with him.

To those of you participating in N-Day:
Good luck to you.

I should also note that even if you don't vote or don't agree with the plan we decide on, I implore you to follow the plan the rest of the members of the region. If I see you not following the plan you will be temporarily ejected from the region

Fair enough

I guess if we end up with a 3-way tie, we can just roll a d4 to decide.

Alright everyone, it seems like the choice this time around for Z-day is to eliminate the threat instead of cure this year

Lxndr, you're back in the land of the living! Just in time for the yearly zombie attack.
Machines guns go brrrr this year.

With the most recent news post from Max Barry, I'm curious to see if it's the same zombie event as always, or if there's a new twist 9 years into it.

Hello there, my fellow heathens.

Ah, I love the smell of burning zombies in the morning. Smells like victory.

Okay the little kinks max is throwing into the works by messing with settings is fun.

Hello all. Just a friendly reminder from Scandinavia to our allies that this week there is a international census being taken on who will win the Election 2020: The pink weasel🐿️ or the orange sloth🐻? We don't know if it'll be like this historic win but we hope it won't end in this. Peace and good week to all!

Sending a token of continued friendship:
