Abydos Regional Message Board
Thank you for the question. I'm still on the fence on whether or not to make a seperate region, on one hand, like you said it will give us more chances to promote, on the other hand, especially at the very beginning it will take a lot of messaging back and forth that I would feel bad subjecting people who didn't sign up for it. But given the input I've gotten I'll will be editing my plan a bit. I really appreciate the input
I really dislike the idea of moving people away from the region as it makes no sense. The people are here that you need to grow your guild/party. It's one thing to have a subregion for military operations, it's another thing just to move the people themselves out.
The Citizens guild is the default guild. Everybody joins it once they become citizens of Abydos. Moving them out kind of makes the entire application for citizenship fairly pointless. You answer something to be a citizen only to then jump somewhere else. Yeah...no that makes no sense.
I ran because the Defense guild has gone stale, and we haven't done anything in weeks, even though we had plans to something at some point in the last few weeks.
I will say that I'm all for getting every guild in Abydos active and lively. Abydos has grown so fast so far and getting people into leading roles that can jumpstart the guilds is something I'm game to see happen.
That is the type of motivation we need around here. There are dozens, sometimes hundreds of opportunities to defend or raid every single update. At 50 chances to do something, 2 times a day, that means that the Defense Guild has missed over 3,000 opportunities this month! That is a ton of missed opportunities.
And it's not like the Defense Guild has to be huge... It is just as easy to team up with another defender or raider group and jump with them. Nothing wrong with that and usually they want the help... and that leads to new allies for the Diplomays Guild and plenty of news stories to write about in History Guild. All this is connected.
Run again, I'll support you. Bon Nese seems motivated to make things happen as well with Citizens, hopefully he can support you too. Let's transform some of these Guilds and have a fun time at it.
We have about 26 days until the next General Election and things are already heating up. Zyris, who is running for Vizier of the History Guild, has pledged to completely overhaul the derelict and defunct History Guild and give it new, strong leadership and a total thematic overhaul as the new Phoenix Guild. That reason alone is why all citizens should vote for Zyris.
But there is More:
The first 10 citizens who join this new Guild will be designated as a Founding Phoenix for life. This is an honor that all nations need to have. Pledge now by showing your support on the RMB and vote Zyris for the win.
We will host events for Abydos regularly. Poetry contest? Art Competition, History Lessions, Cultural debates, Rap Battle, Scavenger Hunts? Abydos can have all that, and more when Zyris wins this election. Want to be a Chief of Events, telegram me.
Regional Newspaper? No problem. Promotion of our history? Easy. Just think, We can promote the history and culture and events all in one convenient newspaper for all Abydos Citizens to enjoy. It's all about making the job easier, and having fun in the process. A Phoenix makes it happen.
The Future could look like this:
A B Y D O S
Any citizen can support the creation of the Phoenix Guild by voting for Zyris on June 5, 2021 in the History Guild Elections. If Zyris wins the election the History Guild will be disbanded and the Phoenix Guild will replace it.
If Zyris wins the Election, The first 10 citizens who join the Phoenix Guild will be designated as a Founding Phoenix, and their names will be preserved here forever. Pledge your support now on the RMB.

As a first step toward a brighter future for the History Guild, I have decided to implement the Power to the People Address.
The goal of this Address is to give every citizen their own chance to show what theyre capable of, and to see what their current styles are for gameplay, roleplay, and various other things within Abydos. They can request help from guild members or do things their own way.
History will also be a major focus. This partly in due to me being the solo person running the newsletter and I would like to put the best interests of the nations who are Guild Members
Finally, we will still support foreign relations and will gladly help making dispatches to show other regions our events.
This is my first step into reform, and to help spread equality across the region.
The Power to the People Address is a major step forward for the History Guild.
-Promoting Smaller Nations
-Stepping Forward in History
-Stepping Backward in News
-Regarding Foreign Association
I neglected to mention, guilds get to have their own say whether or not they give their guild free speech, but it might interest the members enough who arent happy with being censored
