LAZARUS SURVIVES N-DAY

Lazarus experienced nuclear Armageddon, before an arms control treaty could be reached through diplomatic channels. Fortunately Lazarus avoided a post-Apocalyptic nightmare to the disappointment of many doomsday cultists. While Lazarus did not have an internal war between Wolfists and Communists/Socialists this N-Day, it did join the fellow regions of Osiris, The West Pacific, Gay, Hartfelden, and Caer Sidi,in the Pirates of the Nile faction. Congrats to the Pirates of the Nile for a successful fight, and our friends in UPPERCUT who became the reigning champions.

Cormac resigned as Speaker of the Assembly, and has been replaced by McChimp, so best of luck to Cormac in what he plans to do next, and to McChimp in his new career as Assembly Speaker. In other news, Imaginary was appointed as the Minister of Inter-Regional Relations, Killer Kitty (otherwise known as Evil Wolf) has been appointed Recruitment & Outreach Minister, and New Rogernomics has been appointed as the Media & Events Minister. Lastly, there has been a more recent appointment of TempestShadow as the Deputy Speaker of the Assembly, so best of luck also to TempestShadow in that new role. 
 
Commentary:
IMAGINARY, A VERY REAL INFILTRATOR
By @Amerion

Canary Wharf — In a stunning admission, Imaginary publicly came out as a long time infiltrator of the Undead Dominion of Lazarus. 

In what was perhaps the greatest gameplay upheaval of 2017, the Celestial Union of Lazarus dissolved into civil war when then Sovereign Funkadelia staged a coup and installed the Undead Dominion. Over the course of two months, belligerents on both sides made their case before the World Assembly and the gameplay community at-large, while simultaneously attempting to capture or maintain the Delegacy. 

Imaginary underscored his displeasure at these events and states that it was his steadfast resolve to remove Funkadelia from power which led him to join the Dominion under false pretences. Owing to his unknown background, he was able to maintain this facade for the course of the Dominion’s short-lived history.

In early 2018, the Dominion transitioned to the Khanate of Lazarus under the control of Lone Wolves United and was controversially removed in an internal coup by Imki, now Delegate of Lazarus. The new Delegate was not immediately trusted by all residents, as Imaginary himself notes.

‘When Imki took over I didn't know her so I decided to remain incognito’, Imaginary recalls, ‘until I could trust that she wasn't going to use the region in the same way Funk and co. did.’

The revelation of this deception was greeted with understanding. Roavin, himself a seasoned game-player, testified ‘Just from a player's perspective, there's nothing wrong with infiltration - it's an absolutely valid form of playing the game, and in a way, credit to you for being able to successfully do it for a year.’

As to his future, Imaginary said it was up to Lazarus whether it would accept him after his misconduct. The former member of the Dominion expressed hope that he could ‘continue to draw Tubbius pics and hang as an ambassador in our embassies, and most importantly be a part of the region's current community, which I have fallen in love with.’
 
Opinion:
TRIBUTE TO NEW ROGERNOMICS
By @Amerion

On the 2nd of September, Delegate Imki announced her nominations for Cabinet Ministers. In the week that followed, New Rogernomics, Imaginary, and Killer Kitty were confirmed by the Assembly to the postings of Media and Events, Interregional Relations, and Recruitment and Outreach, respectively.

And while there is much to be said of their efforts, or rather, lack thereof in an instance or two, I believe the community as a whole can and should come together in agreement that New Rogernomics is worthy of our highest commendation. 

At risk of inserting my head into his bottom, I will note his smooth transition from a member of the Council of Natives to a Cabinet Minister, a portfolio which he has shown great dedication to; having authored all but one of the articles in the September issue of the Lazarene Gazette, a publication which he took it on himself, at nobody’s behest and at no one’s pressure, to organise, write for, publish, and distribute. What is more astounding is that while he has been serving this region in a ministerial capacity, he has also all but single-handedly provided administration for the forum. It should come to no surprise to any Lazarene that this individual is responsible for the continual provision of forum-services. 

For this and so much more, I would like to express, on behalf of Lazarus if I may, our gratitude to New Rogernomics for his service.
