Izhtat wrote:Ritual cannibalism here refers to post-mortem cannibalism, as pre-mortem cannibalism would cause positive harm to individuals, but post-mortem arguably would not.

If states want to regularise any religious practice that involves deceased humans then they can regulate that though their local laws.

Izhtat wrote:While this may seem appealing at face value, I'm not sure it holds up. For example, do you support any regulations to protect endangered wildlife? Based on what you said about endangered species, it seems you would, but that doesn't harm citizens, yet the state would still be getting involved.

However religious freedoms are fundamental rights and by having no law on this we offer room for doubt to prosecute basic religious practices. Once a law is in place it can be analysed and ammended

Amu-Daria Confederacy wrote:"No individual may be penalised for performing a bona fide religious practice which does not cause positive harm to other individuals. Any restriction upon this right must be vital for the furtherment of a secular interest which outweighs the public's interest in religious freedom."

I think the law wants the protection of those religious rights that do not harm any human being which includes ritual cannibalism etc. I don't see why states should be concerned when their citizens aren't being harmed. When it comes to endangered species, an ammendment to the law can be proposed. By not passing this resolution we are offering room for the persecution of all religious practices by oppressive regimes.

Amendments cannot be proposed in the GA so this is unfortunately no a solution

States can't regulate that through their local laws if the resolution passes because they're bound by the resolution, so they can't violate it. And yeah, you can't amend, only replace.

Disappointed

I can only appeal to our memeber states to vote FOR the resolution on Religious Freedome.

The Order of the Grey Wardens: Guide to being a Guardian
Region | LinkForum | LinkDiscord

What is a Guardian?

Being a Guardian is for warriors who are unable to engage the Darkspawn on the frontlines and yet are still willing and eager to fight the raider blight.

For those busy during the two game update times, you can still conduct military operations and make a difference as a Guardian. Guardians choose to guard and cleanse the regions of NationStates from the Darkspawn in-between update times with a more flexible schedule. Guardians move into target regions during the 12-hour windows between game updates and provide vital WA endorsement support to their leading officers, as well as conducting detags and off update defenses.

Guardian mission updates are found on the RMB (Regional Message Board) and World Factbook Entry for Guardian missions which are updated every 12 hours. There are also notifications given on Discord, if you are able to join.

You don't need to sign up or register anywhere, either on NationStates, on Discord, or the forum. Just start participating by following this guide! This guide will remain pinned in our region to serve as a handbook whenever you need it.

How to Participate:

We call your current nation in The Order of the Grey Wardens your "main nation". For Guardian missions, you will need another nation, which is called a "puppet nation". You can name this nation whatever you want when you create it. To get your puppet nation setup, follow these steps:

1) If your main nation is admitted to the World Assembly, resign now.
2) Login to your puppet nation, or create it if you have not done so already.
3) Go to the Settings page.
4) Associate a valid e-mail with your nation (make sure this is the same e-mail address as on your main nation).
5) In your Motto, make a reference to the name of your main nation in some fashion (so that we know it's you!)
6) Set the LinkGuardians Flag on that nation
7) Apply to join the World Assembly.
8) Check your e-mail, and confirm your admittance into the World Assembly.
9) Move to the current region listed in the newest Guardian RMB post and endorse the selected nation
10) Remain there until the lead nation gains the delegacy position

Between missions, keep your puppet nation in The Order of the Grey Wardens, endorsing our delegate Frilless Islands.

Total mission counts and ranks are calculated at the end of each month by Guardian leadership, typically pinned on the main region page when published.

There may be times where the format of a Guardian mission changes, depending on the needs or goals of the mission. It's important to check your telegrams on your Guardian nation in case you receive special instructions, but here are some you might encounter generally:

  • If asked to move to a region, you move your puppet nation to that region by opening the region page, scrolling to after the World Factbook Entry, and then clicking "Move (Nation) to (Region)". (Note: Do not post on that region's Regional Message Board unless invited by native nations to do so)

  • If asked to endorse a nation, open that nation's page, scroll to the bottom, and click the button "Endorse (Nation)". (Note: You can only do this if your puppet nation is in the same region as that nation)

  • If asked to cross-endorse on a nation, you not only endorse that nation but also every other nation endorsing that nation. To see the endorsees of a nation, scroll to the bottom of the page to "Endorsements received:", which is followed by a list of endorsing nations.

  • If asked to cross-endorse in the region, when you enter a region, you will want to find your fellow Guardian nations and cross-endorse on them. To find these nations, you can either scroll through all nations in the region and look for nations with the Guardian flag, or look at the activity page for that region for nations moving to that region with the Guardian flag.

Guardian Ranks:

Being a Guardian offers quick promotions based on the number of missions you complete and further leadership opportunities. Guardian missions and various Guardian tasks are managed by those who hold the following ranks:

  • Silverite Guardian - The Silverite Guardian is the leader of all the Guardian forces. They will oversee missions and make sure the deeds of the Guardians are remembered for those who come after by maintaining records.

  • Guardian Champion - The Guardian Champion is second-in-command to the Silverite Guardian. They are an experienced veteran of the battlefields and can be trusted to provide leadership in the absence of the Silverite Guardian.

  • Guardian Captain - Guardian captains are those who have shown outstanding dedication to the cause and are entrusted to take the lead on missions when called upon by their superiors.

Even when not in leadership, Guardians can earn titled ranks that reflect their experience and hard-earned effort against the raider blight. These ranks are calculated by leadership at the end of each month, as found in the Guardian mission log:

  • Guardian Knight-Indomitable - These Guardians have dedicated countless hours to protecting regions. You can recognise them by their armor, dented but still glorious, and patched up over and over. That is, if you don't already recognise their storied name. (Awarded to those who have completed more than 125 missions)

  • Guardian Knight-Stalwart - Stalwarts are loyal to their friends and their quest, reliable in every battle, and hard-working, having dedicated their time and sword to a myriad of missions. (Awarded to those who have completed 76-125 missions)

  • Guardian Knight-Bulwark - These Guardians have attended a multitude of missions, their glorious swords always ready to plunge into battle. Regions know they can depend on a Knight-Bulwark. (Awarded to those who have completed 36-75 missions)

  • Guardian Knight - When you hear the gale of wings, and the glint of metal, and the cry of the griffin, a Guardian Knight cannot be far away, ready to help whoever is in need. (Awarded to those who have completed 21-35 missions)

  • Guardian - Guardians are the shields that protect the vulnerable, and the hands that reach out to help people back up after a raid. (Awarded to those who have completed 6-20 missions)

  • Guardian Squire - These young guardians have recently taken up their sword to protect regions all over NationStates. You can recognize them by their shiny new armor and boundless enthusiasm! (Awarded to those who have completed 1-5 missions)

Grea Kriopia wrote:The General Assembly (GA) is about creating legislation on topics important to the international community, much like the real United Nations. In a roleplay sense, if you are in the World Assembly then you can consider this legislation "binding" to your nation unless you choose to resign from the World Assembly on that nation. Practically, sometimes GA legislation can impact the stats of your nation negatively or positively depending on what proposal passes. Once a proposal passes, it becomes a resolution.

The Security Council (SC) is about expressing international approval, disapproval, or enforces "global harmony" through a few different kind of resolutions. Commends are the international approval, as we commend regions or nations for doing good and extraordinary work in NationStates in almost any topic. Condemns are international disapproval, as we condemn regions or nations for doing incredibly villainous work in NationStates also in almost any topic. Then there are Liberations, which the Security Council can use to remove passwords from a region to help with "global harmony", usually to prevent malicious actors from seizing a region and passwording it forever. Lastly, and the newest type of proposal, is the Declaration which is non-binding legislation that expresses an opinion on something happening in NationStates like for example a declaration on the supremacy of potatoes!

Anyone can author GA or SC legislation but it usually takes weeks, if not months, of drafting time and learning from others. If you're in the WA, you can vote for or against proposals as they come up. Delegates hold a special position in regions where they "represent" their region in the WA by having a higher amount of votes based on how many endorsements they care. More endorsements = more votes / sway in the WA. So individual nations can vote on proposals and then so do delegates which makes up the thousands of votes you see in the WA all the time.

oh speaking of im a freshman now but in 8th grade i was in our schools gifted program and we had to write a model un resolution so i get how this stuff works kinda
and thank you bc i was mostly confused on like how the resolutions affected stuff
