Fellow Fanatikese, I look across the tree tops of the Sacred Forest today and see a nation in turmoil. We are still knee-deep in a war with our hated enemy, the Gamecatcher Alliance and we have witnessed the demise of our most staunch ally to date, the Elucidians. And yet, we have much to be happy about as well. Our nation has continued to grow despite the setbacks of war and we are holding our own on the front lines against a numerically superior enemy. These are indeed things to be pleased with. However, I get the sense that all is not well within the borders of Fanatikou. Our citizens seem discontent. It seems the fall of Elucidia has affected us in more ways than we seem to admit. We seem to have lost some of our unity of purpose. I come today to begin the road back to that unity that we once had so that we can continue our quest to glory. This poll shall be used to establish our policy with respect to the war with the Gamecatcher Alliance. Once established, this policy shall influence (if not outright govern) all future decisions for quite some time. <><><><><> No Peace In Our Time - I was there when those vile Gamecatchers razed the beautiful new town of Yun Feng. Their actions demand equal and absolute retaliation from us. This is a holy war. Never surrender! Never stop until the last Gamecatcher is driven from the planet. Kill Zem (if we can get help) - Peace with the Gamecatchers is foolish and should not be considered unless we cannot get assistance in our fight. We cannot hope to stand up against this foe without an ally to assist us in the fight. Get APO to help or make peace. Give Peace A Chance - This war is senseless and everyone knows it. Unless we stop the bloodshed, we will find ourselves hopelessly behind the other nations no matter who emerges victorious. We should attempt to reason with Gamecatcher and establish a reasonable border with them and try to coexist peacefully. Heck No, We Won't Go - GCA has the blessings of the gods or how else would they have beaten the Immortal based military of the Elucidians so quickly and so decisively. Apolyton won't be able to send any comparable force to assist us against them so we shouldn't try to fight any longer lest they conquer us as they did the Elucidians. Make peace now, at any cost. Then, later, we can consider possible (if any) retaliation. Write In - Please post your suggestion below. There is no Abstain option for this poll. If you can't contribute, then don't vote. If you don't like my options, feel free to post an alternative below.
