Welcome GuideNES: The First Step for Lurkers and Newbies Indeed, welcome to the wonderful world of Never Ending Stories! In this you take the helms of a nation at the very start of civilization (1000BC) and shape it as you desire. This NES is designed to be user-friendly to those looking at this for the first time. It is espicially so since every new player will have a veteran NESer assigned to them. This "Buddy System" will ensure there is always someone to plot and plan with. To get involved, fill in this template: From here JosefStalinator will place your nation on the world map and we will assign a veteran neser to you as an Advisor. Once we have several nations placed on the map Josef will write update 0. This will place the other NPC Nations on the map, and give the world its general setting. Then you will work with your Advisor to write your first set of orders before a given deadline. These will be messaged to JosefStalinator. Once all orders are collected, Update 1 will be written, and the Never ending story has begun! Notes: - If you have any questions whatsoever (including clarifying questions about things insufficiently or not at all covered by the stats), ask the moderator because you will probably end up doing that anyway if you really want to know the answers; - Want to do something that isn’t covered by the rules? Contact the moderator all the same - if you could persuade him to allow you to go ahead then you can do that; - Let us begin. Err, right after I post some more stuff.
