No limits in tech, WA membership, types of play, or anything else reasonable. Anyone's welcome who wants to hang out and not be a nuisance - using my region as a base to raid from is a nuisance.

We're in it to have fun. Don't spam tg boxes or RMB with regional merge offers. It will be reported.

Regional Happenings


The Vast Regional Message Board

Hamsters with needles... I'm not sure if that's cute or terrifying.

Teamwork effort: Kajal, Sunset, Taraskovya.

All nations are under 1 billion zombies.

Wulfhelm and Sigma are at 0.

From active Cure players:
Sunset,Treznor, Roania are at 0.

Regional picture looking good, waiting for folks to come online to start spamming nations down to 0.

So apparently Max lifted all border controls. But I put that back in place, because bulding walls creates jobs in several cascading industries, so I guess walls are good.


It looks like we're clean. Well done everyone!

Sigmans solve all of their problems with violence.

(Really, I was checking on my phone and didn't read back up the board on the region plan.)

Once again, I forgot about Z-day. I don't think I've actually remembered it except maybe twice since it started.

7 years, 11 days ago - my last comment on z-day in region chat. oooof


I was in the hospital, my sister in law passed away. Sorry folks.

On a side note maybe she was one of the zombies??

There's no need to apologize for that. Family takes precedence.

Um...too soon?

Top 5% in the world in Foreign Aid Spending? That would make sense, with our mission.
