I mean, my character was not even in the area and I plan on starting fresh. You claim you did not want to replay him, which I can understand, because how would playing a character like that be fun? The personality quirks are nifty, but the powers are atrocious in my humble opinion. It does not em too hard to justify Rickard simply leaving in favor of a new life.

BC does not want to accept harm could have befallen his character. Who saw that one coming. I will probably create a new character, considering my last one was a bit awkward, all things considered. (It was an Ottoman who’s powers allowed him to take over the powers of others, as well as their appearance, upon killing them. Through his journeys he killed a merchant who had the power to shrink items to a fraction of their size, which proved invaluable in the production of bombs. They slew a German soldier who was quite apt with fire, but more so smoke in particular. They later assassinated the Queen of England and took over their job, feeding info back to the Germans, and the Ottomans who wished to steal the German superweapon.)

I can understand where you are coming from with many of your rebuttals Mr Godson, however I would like to state that recent studies have shown that drone operators suffer from comparable levels of PTSD, if not more so than their peers who serve as combatants in the field. I would also like to reiterate that I am not speaking out, in protest of the drone pilots who may mistakenly kill civilians, but rather the heads of state that commission their usage against all targets, regardless of who they are. However, you, and I seemingly have opposing views on a multitude of international issues. I personally oppose the usage of drones in the Middle East. Forgive the boldness of my statement, but I think missiles will only strengthen the opposition, as we are not facing an organized state with clear cut borders, and political institutions, but rather facing an ideology that frames the western world as a heartless oppressor. How do you expect anonymous drone strikes raining fire from the skies to change that view?

I want to confirm that it was the president of Israel who was assassinated, and not the prime minister. I just want to ensure it was not a mistake, as although Israel has both, the president is mostly a figure head whilst the prime minster serves as the executive leader of their government. Thank you for the inevitable clarification.

Mats Tollefsen, Prime Minister of Norway

As our session winds to an end, I would like to broach a rather important topic regarding the future of how conflicts are handled. In the days of old, issues were settled in a rather face to face matter. Arguably one of the most important battles in history, the Battle of Tours, saw a civilian death count that was ultimately nonexistent. As technology progressed over the years we have made the settling of differences into a less personal manner. The Battle of Warterloo, another influential moment in western history saw many casualties, and it was not even the most bloody of engagements within it’s era. The ability to bombard our foe from long range began to transition battles more towards a matter of who had the better positioning, and technological prowess. ’

However, as artillery technology advanced, and became more readily available, war again shifted. War quickly became a numbers game, as noted in the first Great War. Many battles were decided by which faction was willing to dispose more soldiers in order to gain ground. Horrible, chemical weapons were created and launched via long range artillery in order to quickly uncover how much we were willing to spend to advance from one trench to another. After that horrible war winded down to an end, the Germans managed to develop a new method of advancing at a much more rapid rate, without employing the chemical warfare that had since been taboo’d and outlawed. This lightning warfare, fast moving tanks coupled with aerial bombardments allowed people to march in safely, and quickly assimilate new territory. Albeit at the cost of civilian. Men surrounded by motorized steel would pull levers, and press buttons that would casually extinguish life in exchange for the furthering of political goals. The only deterrent to these bombers were the threat of a fighter ace, or anti-air gun shooting them down. Although the risk was low, it was still there.

However, that risk has been eradicated with the implementation of drone warfare. No longer is war an pointed,and direct confrontation between distinct parties who have been driven to the only solution they see viable. War is a cold, and calculated contest to see who could throw more money into the war machine. When the only risk is a possible loss of funds, there will be little empathy left within the great generals of the world. Please forgive me for rambling, but I have been rather distressed by all the nations who are furthering drone research despite the questionable ethics behind it. Perhaps I am old fashioned for being uncomfortable with a family being wiped out by a man staring at a screen from many of miles away.

Regardless, I am formally requesting that the United Kingdom, and Canada cease all current, and further research projects that involve the advancement of drone technology. Thank you.

It is a shame that the President of the United States had such a public, and impulsive resignation, but I am sure it was for the better. Now, moving on to more current matters; the assassination of Israel’s leader has been quite a negative event. We could spend billions of dollars conducting an investigation inside their own borders, or we could accept that they are ushering in a new era, and we can focus on dealing with the present. Their new leader, whose name I cannot recall, seems to be a supporter of affirmative action, and preemptive strikes. If he was in charge of any other nation, the world would be up at arms.

Due to the volatile nature of politics within that region, I feel that the UN should take a hands off approach, because any strong decision is going to split people into factions, unless somehow, everyone miraculously agrees with the same course of action. A quick glance into our past, reveals that splintering the world into factions has traditionally negative results. Therefore, Norway will not contribute to the investigation, nor will we not initially oppose whatever actions their leader takes, as long as they stay in line with what we find ethically acceptable.

This is by no means a criticism, but rather a humble suggestion. What if the United States took a major dip to stability, and a reserve player took control of their country? Having participated in previous NOTW’s, I do not think it would have the same wonder if both China, and The United States were uninvolved.

I am afraid I have to decline. I am giving you this proposal, arguably overpaying you in the process, as an assistance to you more-so than myself. I am going to give you an ultimatum. You either proceed in the transaction, transferring all nonhuman assets to Norway before the Summer of 2017 in exchange for 50B, or you pay to remove all of your assets from Norway. If neither of these are met, we will have to reluctantly seize your military assets that remain within our borders. Thank you, President Dickson.

I would like to use this gathering to broach a topic with the President, of the United States. It does appear that you would like to reduce your international influence. This works quite in favor with our new foreign agenda. The state of Norway has decided to remove all United States military presence from within our borders. We feel that we are developed enough to handle our own affairs, and are essentially removing the baby’s mouth from the mother’s teat.

However the removal of soldiers may be cheap and simple, but from a logistics standpoint, it would be quite the annoying process to have to extract all of the tanks stored away within Norway’s borders. Therefore, I, Mats Tollefsen, leader of Norway, am offering you, President Dickson of the United States, 50B to take all of your nonhuman military assets, off of your hands.

Two great nations are willing to sever international ties in order to forge some with everybody’s favorite neighborhood Norway? I am flattered. I accept the trade agreement from Eritrea, and I offer condolences to both Russia, and the United Arab Emirates.

Mats Tollefsen, Leader of Norway

Despite our intended neutrality on the international scale, I would like to state that it should be Canada’s responsibility to sort things out. It was their issue, and they should be given a few months to sort things out. Inaction is the best action. Further inability to contain the crisis should be examined if this issue remains prevalent in the ensuing year.

I’m thinking I could lock one of you in the Dallas Turnpike, and right before you reach the point of tapping, you crawl to the corner, and tag in the other one, who comes right at me from the top rope? We are fairly new and the crowd won’t expect too much, I think that is a good enough spot to sell the show. We just need to keep the action quick, and we’ll be good, good?

Well naturally, Hardigan, and I are going to win. We’re in agreement on this, so let’s talk how we want the ending to go. Personally, I think The Walrus should start off outside the ring, just because I don’t imagine him having the best stamina.

Legal Name: Jason Daniel Dallas
Wrestler Name: “The Dallas Star” Jason Daniels

In-Ring Personality: He has done some taunting, and pandering to the fans, but he usually knows when it is time to take care of business. He is neither particularly agile, or strong, but rather a versatile in between. He uses his versatility to keep his opponent, and subsequently his fans, on their toes.

Costume: Black tights, with silver stars down the side. He wears black boots, with silver tassels at the middle of his calf. He comes to the ring wearing a black, cowboy hat.

Physical Description: He is 6’4, and 220 pounds. Shoulder length, luscious blonde hair, tan skin, and some rugged stubble complete his cowboy look. That, and his aesthetically impressive body give the woman forced to watch, something to watch. He is 24 years old.

Signature Maneuvers:

The Showstopper- He lifts his opponent onto his shoulders in a fireman’s carry. He then tosses them forward, and knees them in the head on the way down.

The Dallas Turnpike- A submission that involves grabbing their foot while they are down, wrapping one’s legs around the target leg in order to prevent escape, and then cranking their heel away form the body. (Heel hook)
