Bastion Time

It's that time, friendos, where I will once again distribute payments from the legendary Warden coffers. Or perhaps they are the Warden's legendary coffers. Either way! Bastion VI has wrapped up and, even though summer has been hitting NationStates hard, we had a strong uptick in Guardian activity this time over last. I see that the sum of everyone's completed missions is about 30 higher than it was last month. There's nothing I appreciate more than those who turn up to combat the Blight, and the Guardians are a great way of doing exactly that.

Here are the results of the endorsement competition. The top 20 players in bold hit that threshold and each won a copy of the Season 2 legendary card The Grim Reaper:

One additional mystery card will also be awarded which has a Market Value of over 1,000.00, and is guaranteed to generate a gold badge in International Artwork.

Wardens, many militaries of the world extend their power only to the battlefield and neglect to appreciate that there is an opportunity to confront the enemy at every turn. The Darkspawn are relentless and, left unchecked, would slowly consume the World Assembly and all those who depend upon it for swift justice. The Grey Wardens are not of this number, for we remain vigilant, even in times of peace. Our World Assembly delegate is among the top 25 most powerful delegates in the world. This is an incredible testament to the strength that our region has politically, and it's all thanks to the multitude of nations who have come together to make this possible.

It is truly great.

We can do better

There are enough World Assembly nations within the region to raise our voting power to the top 20 in the world, or go even further. All it takes is a single endorsement from each of you, given to The Order's delegate, Saint Tomas and the Northern Ice Islands, it just takes a second, and you only need to do it once. To help push things in the right direction, we're throwing a little bit of incentive behind it by holding a card lottery -- not only for those who have been helping the region out already, but everyone who has yet to do so as well. All it takes is supporting our delegate with an endorsement to qualify.

In addition to all nations endorsing the delegate qualifying, if the Guardian official records reflect that a Guardian completed at least ten missions during the competition, they will also automatically qualify for the Stack Edition lottery drawing. This means members of The Order will never need to choose between Guardian missions and boosting our vote. It also means legendary card awards are even more accessible.

For this lottery, we will be distributing ten valuable legendary cards. Here's the full list:

But that's not all

We live in strange economic times, where there are cards which have values well beyond that which can be explained. Hyper-inflated, expensive cards can be fleeting, or their value can stick around. But all the same, these cards have made their way into The Grey Wardens' coffers, and we are absolutely ready to part with them for your help. So, in addition to the above legendary prizes, a mystery hyper-inflated card will be awarded to an eleventh nation endorsing the delegate, bringing their net worth up by at least 1,000.00, and guaranteeing them a top 1% in the world, gold census badge in International Artwork.

Every nation endorsing the delegate will be qualified for the drawing. So lock in your candidacy today by endorsing Saint Tomas and the Northern Ice Islands. The Lottery takes place Thursday, July 28th.

In Peace, Vigilance

Hey guys,

I'm here to give you an update. At 2:30 in the morning. It's the conclusion of the Bastion VI round, wrapping up a total of six months for the program. Hooray! I've been pretty swamped with work lately so, many apologies for the delay. But! The lottery has been conducted and I'm pleased to share the results with you. For this round, an impressive fourteen guardians qualified for the drawing. I'd like to thank both them and those of you endorsing the delegate for help keeping our region fully powered during the long summertime lulls.

Here are the winners of the last round:

Move a World Assembly nation to: Do what you want
Endorse: Upper michigania


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)

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)

Right, you lose your endorsements when you resign from the World Assembly. This is why most Wardens are not WA members in the region unless they are on leave.

Especially if it's socialist

I can offer to give protection to the royal family if Fortisbellator wants. We will soon finish our civil war and we will be safe. We can offer a small force to be with them for safety.
