      How about some raids on Gunnish banks with a presence in Amstov as part of the Vacant Bank scandal? I'd imagined Trivodnia's capital being something of a regional financial centre as well, although we probably lost a lot of Kadikistani clients after the Christmas Crisis...

      Would Cardinal Stewart obey a summons to Eiffelland to see the pope? What would be the best venue for a conversation on the cardinal's role? A thread of its own?
      1. Gunnland

        Yes and yes, we could open a thread with @Retalia about the bank scandal and the status of the VC in general.

        Stewart can arrive whenever he's ready. I'm not really one for exposition posts.

      I want to integrate a bit more into the fabric of RP. So, one option I'm exploring is for Elben to have regular visits by his Pope to the Vacant City in Tibur.

      As Gunnland is so staunchly Catholic, maybe an area to explore is supporting the Order of Saint Lothar in the management of the Vacant City within Tibur?

      I mean, we've finally found Tibur, let's use it!

      I took the liberty of assuming Chief MacLeish is still in Trivodnia. Also do we have diplomatic relations? If so I'm gonna kick your ambassador out! Might also cancel some Gunnish work visas for fun.

      I always presumed I did this, since early on, but never really RP'd it specifically. I would most certainly be interested in acquiring a bank in Ayr, maybe even going back to the 1930s?
      1. Gunnland

        Sounds good. Perhaps I'll even have the Gunnish banking sector grow up around the "(Ivar) People's Bank" headquartered in Ayr, and say it really took off in the 1970s/80s as Ayr grew in importance.

      I'll be there. If there is prestige to be won, Kadikistani Union is in. I'll give you some names later, as I'm gonna have the diverse republics each have their own field of excellence (thus also different ethnic groups and names). I was planning on finishing my contribution to the '1950's decade of war" thread first, unless you need them right away?

      Out of curiosity, do you have go-to sources for things like the ecclesiastical calendar?

      11/10 news post. Nice to see people read my stuff then use it as their own. Also if this government/clan Gunn is quite anti Semitic I'm sure Amstov backs and covers for the MacLeishes quite heavily. Maybe that can be used against them (collaborating with Christ killers etc)

        Nice! Let's build some sort of weird esoteric "Gunnish Israelism" into Duncan MacLeish's bio, which is why the MacLeish is so willing to defy the Church. This would be secretly held by some, but not all, of the anti-Gunn clan leaders.

      Hey, I understand you offered the Kadikis a land route to CBS. It's unlikely that will stay entirely hidden, but I wanted to check with you before I do anything. Basically, Deliverance still has to get back at your country for its travel restrictions and if it were to learn of this deal, it would make sure it would become public knowledge. You cool with that?

        Hmm. Could pass it on to SWR as an olive branch following our recent spat and minimise chance of Clan MacLeish being caught out?

        I imagine there would be no way of knowing _how_ Deliverance finds out, _if_ it's even possible to know that Deliverance is behind the leak.

        I'll do a post and let Revy roll from there though I'm not sure why SWR would care so much tbh

      If someone wants to extract/eliminate MacLeish, might I offer some discount rates on shady extralegal mercenary kidnapping?

      Clan MacLeish can expect a warm but discreet welcome from its Yiddish friends in Trivodnia should it need to

      I continue to be insanely jealous of both the brevity and quality of your writing skills. :P

      Hope that is okay with MacGuire being on Gunnish TV. I thought after I should have put Gunnish language TV or something.

        No that's cool. I don't think Gunnland is a big cultural power, but KGB-1 can broadcast our in-game MacGyver knockoff!

      I second Engellex's comments. Great writing indeed. Would love to rp with you sometime ^^

        Thanks pal. Well let's bend the king's sword through Gunnland somehow. Robert Gunn, the well-connected college professor/clan chief is my "main character"... perhaps he and Langstrom are old buds.

      I read through Engagements last night, and I am really enjoying it. Good writing!

        Thanks. It's been fun to write miscellaneous backstories that touch upon the big international stories. I sense budding interest for some of the sordid backstories of Hammersmith's red light district...!

      I might actually be interested in the same. I'd originally thought to write a humorous news piece over it, but I think I'd rather go the same route as the previous poster. If you care to amend the list with us included I have a few names to add ready, will include them in a message upon request.

        That will allow for the best of both worlds well enough then, naming at least one or two institutions in the aforementioned (good natured in the dryly academic way) humorous news piece.

        The Patrimonium Institute has an agenda, to be sure. It's a sort of conservative thinktank interested in promoting traditional Western humanities, hence the "probation" for all kinds of universities I assume would objectively be highly ranked.

      4. Chernovy

        That might work towards a favorable ranking, depending upon how conservative exactly. Higher education is inextricably linked to Orthodoxy in Chernovy, playing upon an unbroken tradition of Medieval Orthodox learning in the way of "mystical scholasticism." This will have flowered into a parallel but structurally similar/equivalent university tradition, and educational tradition overall.

      Hey there, any chance I can get some of our books/university onto your lists? Thanks. :)
      1. Gunnland
        Gunnland
        Yes. Drop something in your newsfeed. I generate my lists by searching things like "book," "author," "university," etc. The plan is to update them every ~2 mos. Also happy to host distinguished foreign humanities scholars at the Marian University in Windhaven.

      I must admit it's a little bit bizarre to see you with another username even though it of course makes sense given you are playing another nation now. It kinda was very ingrained into your identity here, so certainly a change of pace.

        I always played 'Gunnlandia' here even with a 'Capitollium' username tied to the NS country I created in 2004 or something. The new name-change feature allowed me to simplify things.

      Hello. Was gonna do a post in the hidden king re the kidnapping. One thing I'm not sure of is whether princess Julian actually was ever taken to Trivodnia. Up to you.
      1. Gunnland
        Gunnland
        Yes. There was a shootout in Kretyn between rival Yiddish gangsters, the upstarts who worked as subcontractors for the MacLeish (who were in turn contracted by the Church), and the established mafia.

        She obviously survived, but this was the catalyst for getting her the hell out of Kretyn to Eiffelland.
