Hab grad festgestellt dass es einige Regionen gibt die sich wohl auf NationStatesKarten spezialisiert haben. Die findet man wenn man nach Card Farm sucht.

Around the Islands

~ August's LinkFeatured Nation was Margaux, a prolific roleplayer who has also served in TITO, as a recruiter, and as Deputy Senator for Himes West. Keep up the good work!
~ XKI's first-ever LinkTacoVison, hosted by Hakketomat, was a resounding success, with over 20 participating nations, a Discord listening party, and a live vote count. HN67 proved his excellent music taste with his winning song entry LinkMoney Run Low by The Score. Congrats!
~ Minister of Immigration, THX1138, gave recruiters a chance to win tons of Tacos during the LinkTreasure Beach Summer Recruiter Event. Although the event was briefly interrupted for Accelerator maintenance, recruiters were eager to continue the race to draw in new nations, and the competition has been extended into September.
~ A multitude of fantastic flag designs were submitted for the LinkA Taco Archipelago Flag Contest, sponsored by Taco-Island-Charities. After much consideration, Islanders chose the entry by Free Las Pinas, making it A Taco Archipelago's official flag! Congratulations FLP and thank you to all who participated.

They also gave Islander's a chance to share a laugh and snack on popcorn during XKI's first official Linkmovie night, watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Big thanks to the Cultural Office Staff for their amazing work!

Islander Achievements

We're trying out a new section for this report, dedicated to the individual achievements and efforts of XKI members. Don't forget to drop by and congratulate them on their success!

~ Blogotopia was ranked as the #6 Top Issue Player early in August. Little wonder, given that they're Number 1 in Welfare, Public Education, and Youth Rebelliousness, and are in the top 0.1% for an astounding 38 stats.
~ Not to be outdone Tzo was ranked as the #4 Top Issue Player in the same dispatch, being first in Intelligence, Culture, and Inclusiveness. They are also in the top 10 ranking for a grand total of 16 stats! Congrats to both of XKI's premier issue players! We hope to see you both continue to rise in the rankings.
~ Paffnia has been busily typing away with his latest issue draft Parking? Lots! Filled with humor and Paff's signature charm, the draft is shaping up nicely for submission. Here in XKI, we're keeping our fingers crossed for a quick publication!
~ Wischland was too humble to mention her own issue drafts when writing this section but she has at least two in the works, Spare a Couple Endorsements, Leader? and Of Wealth and Health, as well as one already submitted! Most definitely a promising career of issue writing in her future and fingers crossed on publishing!
~ Despite being just a few months old in NS, Free Las Pinas has already become an important figure in the realm of trading cards. With a deck valuation at an incredible 2553.78, FLP is already ranked in 100th place for International Artwork. As if that wasn't awesome enough, he's also been a boon to the region with his card mentorship and contributions to the LinkXKI Card Co-op. Thank you FLP, and keep up all the good work!

XKI Game-Side

A poll by THX1138 held this August made stomachs rumble, asking Islanders about their favorite type of pie as we approach the fall season.

Meet A Nation Interview

This month we had the pleasure to sit down with a relatively new nation in XKI, Free Las Pinas, and chat about their work in the new XKI Cards Coop that launched recently within the region. Aside from within the Coop, FLP works assisting the XKI Casino, as Ambassador to Texas, and as Deputy Senator for Lyonnesse East.

GK: Thanks for doing this FLP, why do you talk about how you ended up in XKI?

FLP: Like everybody else, I began with founding my nation, which was pretty boring. I did everything most of us probably did. Once I was done with the issues and reading the new policies, I noticed I had a few telegrams. I read through a few and laughed, but what I really liked in particular was this one I got that mentioned me being “a hot commodity”. After reading the telegram in full, I decided to see what 10000 Islands was all about, and thought huh, white-sand beaches and blue-green waves? This region is perfect for me [my nation being an archipelago and all]! So I hit the join button and never looked back.

GK: Of course! Obviously you quickly got involved here, especially in cards, what/who got you into trading cards?

FLP: A few days after my founding, I created new puppets, because I got really bored of waiting hours to answer issues. I soon also applied for the Cultural Office Assistant position, and one thing led to another, I was handling about 50 nations, with half of them devoted to the Cultural Office. With that many nations, I quickly got involved more with cards and I began farming every single day.

GK: So, then what exactly do you do in your new role as a Cards Coop Administrator?

FLP: As of now, I handle the Co-op Mentorship program, wherein I assign members to a mentor and I also teach Co-op members who are new to card farming. I also help in processing recruits, and I’m soon going to handle our Shared Transfer Card System.

GK: Can you explain what the Cards Coop is for those who don't know?

FLP: The Co-op is XKI’s own cards-based organization that stockpiles legendary cards and cards of significant Islanders. We’re mostly based around cooperation, wherein we help each other build collections by allowing members to request any card on our Co-op farms.

GK: Overall, do you feel like the Cards Coop has boosted regional card activity?

FLP: Definitely! These few weeks, we’ve seen individual deck values nearly double or triple for some nations. I became the first Islander to reach 2000 DV on a single nation, then HS beat that record and broke 2500 DV, and now we have Constantinolia who broke 3000, 3500, and now, 4000 DV. Additionally, Megistos has decided to begin on their own NS Sports card collection, which is off to a good start with their massive hoarding of Vilita and Turori cards, wherein they have double the amount that even Vilita has!

GK: That's fantastic! I know the Coop has adopted a more community style of organization and contribution. How do you think the cooperative community model of the Coop impacts the way it functions?

FLP: This cooperative model allows us (the card farmers) to work more flexibly, and again, easily build up collections and contribute to the region. To expand on what I said earlier, Megistos wants to create an NSS card collection. However, it can be exhausting to farm on a hundred puppets every single day, which is where the Co-op comes in. We have a rule of not selling, gifting, or junking cards until 72 hours have passed. This is so our members have an adequate amount of time to look through the cards of other Co-op members and request any cards they'd need for their collection.

GK: Very interesting. Are there any goals for the XKI Cards Coop for the upcoming future?

FLP: One of our goals would be to create an efficient cooperative cards program for any resident of XKI. What I mean by this is that we'd want to give our members access to a huge supply of cards to build up their collections. It's important not only because it creates a community in itself, but also because of the potential incentive for new players looking to create a huge card collection or help out around the region. We've started off with the Mentorship program, wherein HS and I suggest scripts and give tips on how to farm more efficiently, how to transfer more bank, etc. How I see it, there's no big rush on this. While I know it'd be fun to host events and have some fun with our legendary cards stockpile, I'd prefer we take it slow. After all, if we party now, we'll have nothing left for later!

GK: Those sound like great goals, and definitely good long term planning for the future. To wrap things up on a lighter note, what's been your favorite lucky pull so far?

FLP: By far, it has to be when I pulled a Testlandia. It was one of the first legendary cards I pulled, and when I saw that huge spike in my deck value, I couldn't help but keep going!

Until next month, your XKI Update Staff is signing off - Grea Kriopia and Wischland

Hallo Deutschland, bin neu hier ;) bin aus keine den Deutschsprachigen Länder, aber ich habe mich entscheidet, mein Deutsch zu verbessern, habe ich seit Jahren zu viel vergessen.

Hello everyone, I know this is a selfish ask, but if you have cards you don't necessarily desire in your collection, gift them to me please. I am trying to build a great collection and I would appreciate every single bit of help I could get

I just started looking into the card game and I actually wanted to gift all mine away but then I realized that I need to sell some first as one needs credits to gift cards... So I kinda decided I will ignore those cards all together.

Ich werde mich voraussichtlich nicht am Bombenwerfen beteiligen. (Habe ich bisher auch regelmaessig und ziemlich freiwillig verpasst). Aber Kartoffelkommando klingt gut.

Willkommen in Deutschland, Plakkia! Wir freuen uns über Regionsmitglieder. Du brauchst auch ganz bestimmt nicht perfekt Deutsch schreiben. Jedes Interesse an der Sprache ist willkommen.

Dankeschön, Ludwigreich! Ich freue mich, dass du gesund und munter (und vielbeschäftigt) bist.

Bavaria and Franconia, ich schenke dir gerne Karten. Wenn sie dir Freude machen, super.

Rumpelstilzchen wrote:one needs credits to gift cards

Another, quicker method of gaining credit is to junk some of the cards, those that appear less interesting. It's what I've done mostly. Then I can give some other cards away as gifts.

Die Zombies zu Halloween finde ich ganz goldig. Vielleicht können wir uns für diese spätere Gelegenheit auf eine Strategie einigen? Das virtuelle Bombenwerfen interessiert mich eher nicht. Ich würde schon für diejenigen, die interessiert sind, einer Fraktion beitreten. Allerdings nehme ich immer zuvorderst Rücksicht auf Spieler, die ohne ihre Zustimmung gestört worden sind, und sich daher nicht mit Griefern abgeben wollen. Wenn jemand eine andere Allianz vorschlagen kann, in der keine Leute drin sind, die Invasionen machen, kann ich sie in Erwägung ziehen. Ansonsten werde ich das Ereignis lieber ignorieren.

Edit: 'Oh no! Bavaria and Franconia cannot receive your gift as they have no deck capacity.'
Deine Kartentruhe ist zur Zeit voll. Ich schicke dir den Rest später. :)
