Pip For Marind Bell King!

Ok. Stop arguing and vote for me! Yes, that's right. Vote for dst!! Shall I start with the "what I will do/wanna do" speech? I would rather not. You all know me: what I did, do, what are my opinions and so on. So...start voting :)) Oh wait...until Mur puts the voting link :P
[/quote]
Hell, you get MY vote ;)

Two reasons:
>1: dst is damn sexy! I mean seriously, just look at that clown outfit she sports... rahr!
>2: I like having my account. Oh god, please don't unleash your bugs upon me! Ruuuuuuun!

~~~~~~~~

Seriously though, I have to say that so far, I don't like any of the candidates except Chewett (and dst, of course >.> please don't smite me!).
After the recent fiasco with Necrovion (read Observers post, then my next one, before you comment on Lifeline not being in the SoE), I question Lifelines ability to look out for the best interests of the land.
And Pip, as has already been expressed your connection with the land is questionable, so I question your ability to even KNOW what is best for the land.

As it stands, this may be the first vote I abstain from. You want my vote? You better have a very good argument in your application you sent to Mur. Because so far, I haven't seen much evidence of your worth. EITHER OF YOU.

Note: Not an attack on your policies, I think you both have good ones. I just don't see why those policies require you to be in that capacity to perform them. (A fact that Chewett has himself seemingly asserted, by saying that his and Lifelines plans, instigated initially by Mur, will go ahead regardless) Make MB more inviting and popular? Hell, I could do that!
Differentiate yourself from the Flock! Go earn those votes!

I think you should get your facts straight, Lifeline was not involved in that as it was the KoB that fought necro (and the KoB only) he was in SoE at the time.

lemme get this straight Pip u never even tried to apply for SoE even tho u were interested because u THOUGHT u would get rejected? now u want to become king but had fear of rejection to only ask if u could join an alliance? is this how a king would act? does this show that u are even a little close to any of the 2 MB alliances? and u being in a lot of alliance has nothing to do with it. we never had problems with ppl who were in several alliances before the only problem was when those ppl decided to quickly jump into another alliance and then come back to SoE. only then they were rejected and not because they were in like 2 alliances before.

and Kyphis what do u mean with fiasco in necro. both me and chew totally stayed out of the whole thing. none of us supporter Lib and yrth in the war against necro. i even stated before the final battle in a public topic on forums that i wont participate no matter what because it was totally against my values. let me please remind u. i stayed out and as a consequence of the war with which i had nothing to do KoB was lost. a few days ago i managed to get KoB back and it fully belongs to MB again. or wasnt that in the best interest for the land? should i have better left KoB in the hands of necro and surrendered it?

and Pip who is this last co-leader u speak of who got kicked and demoted? i have no clue whom u are talking about ... if u mean Lib he wasnt co-leader he was a full leader. and he was never forced to leave the land. he lost his alliance to the sentinels in the war and deceived to leave.
...wait maybe u mean Fenrir. then i am just really disappointed about ur lag of information... Fenrir helped us recruiting for SoE. he was the recruiter and no co-leader. then there happened an incident and HE LEFT SoE. he was never kicked.

all i can see here is tons of misinformation. i am really happy that at least some of it could be cleared here. and i encourage everybody to ask if anything is unclear. so please if u have any questions, concerns, comments, whatever post them right here.

I am in fact fully aware of that.

But thanks for pointing it out. If I hadn't already been fully aware of it, it would have interfered with my argument.

As it is, it doesn't.

I presume your referring to this: [quote]We will move on. We will make Marind Bell Better. And We shall NOT rely on one person to help us do this.[/quote]

And it does say "us" and "we" why does that make YOU think you can do the same? If your not referring to this, please clarify.

Look at EXACTLY what I say. I refer only to my ability to make MB more inviting and open, not the other things. However, I DO reference those other things when I say that OTHERS could do that just as easily.

This is getting off topic...

I say, let the day come for the judgment. I see good things in Pip even though he's a freakin' potato fries! XD
Even a single potato can make a difference... :P

And Kyphis, sorry for Observer, he's a really, really special child who loves to destroy rituals at GGG. He just needs to seek a professional help. ;);):))

For clarification, I'm not talking about the War, and as I said when replying to Observer, they are personal reasons so I won't go into them (and no, I haven't explained them to ANYONE). If you will note, I state that because of these reasons I am considering not voting for either of you. I do not say they are reasons to vote against you, just that they are reasons for me not to vote for you.

I highly question your ability to do so due to your previous posts in this topic, you don't strike me as "inviting". And what makes you assume others can get the alliances behind them? What makes you assume they know the plans as to how to "rebuild" MB even?

Destroying rits at GGG? Only rits that have ever been killed there were because I said "not set" and people decided they wanted to attack before I did set anyway.

No... Your (maybe I have myself as well) getting offtopic by far. If you really insist on showing me your Photoshop skills sent me a PM.

EDIT: @Kyphis, maybe if you really wanted that to happen you could try not to insult me (or anyone else) next time?

Since I was replying to the candidates, not you, in that initial post, and the focus was that they hadn't as yet given any real incentive to vote for them above most other candidates, so no, perfectly valid post (unlike this one, which is completly off topic and I would appreciate if you would let it die rather than dreadging it up again and again, as I don't feel like reply again if you're going to keep making the same mistakes)

eh yes... to refer back to chews post, yeah that was deal for soe at that meeting and that meeting decided that soe will become just like chew said it while other part of ex soe would get second ally, military based, KOB, that happened but only partially... still mur promised new logo for it as current one was just temporal, in fact mur asked if i want to wait for new logo or to get ally with temporal and i said give me ally with temporal logo, well and i actually pushed him a bit on dsts advice ;) but nvm... well mine point in here is that we could do somethin more about mb (without touchin soe) at that point, but since we were focused on supposed soe event we havent done anythin

and well... i also question lifelines view on loyalties to land, becoz he is too much neutral in most cases or he picks side he thinks is in best interest of realm, so its possible situation that he goes against mb, now question is would he put his personal principals on which he build his role in front of mb, or will he stick to interests of mb

heh what do u want to hear now? a nice speech about how i love MB and would give my life fighting for it?
i think everybody is well aware of how i stand. i might have been "too much neutral" so far but is that necessarily a bad thing? u did the extreme other course of action. u waged a war against necro what cost MB a lot and was completely unsuccessful. was betting 1 of MB alliance in the best interest of the land?

and were does MB stand right now? u keep saying it is in ruins... so if that is true what is needed is not some leader who is totally obsessed about his love towards the land and willing to wage war against every possible threat but a rebuilder. somebody to restore MB to its former glory and even more. when that is accomplished there might arise issues about being to neutral. but even then there is a balance in the realm between the 4 main lands that should be respected. and what is the only situation when being to neutral is bad? yes in times of war only. when MB is under attack or wants to engage in war, that is the only point of time when being neutral or not affects anything. if MB is under attack i (if i become king) would honor my duties and do everything possible to defend it.
now the only case of an offensive strike against another land is left... is that what u are looking for? another war?

i understand very well that being king of one land is different from the role i had so far. of course it is. if i do become king i will have another tag for sure and with that tag will act according to that role. i will suffer a loss of neutrality i am aware of that and willing to accept it

ofc it was worth it, to risk whole army in order to try to take down lands natural enemy, ofc its worth it

balance maintains itself, we can freely do wot ever we want, there is no reason to keep things as they are now, that will bring no change, if ya change things, old things are no more, new things come in place

so when ya gain power ya are ready to act differently from your role, but ya was unable to do same thing when close friend asked for help?

Share on other sites

then what about me being at the stone of twisted souls and fighting the summoned army for the east quest? why did i do that even when i say i am neutral? because i want change and had the feeling it will bring change. why did i not help u in the necro war? because ur desired outcome would have brought stagnation. u would have destroyed the sentinels completely and removed an interesting part of the game. if u devastate necro what is left to fight for? there needs to be a counterpart, u have to embrace it. its the same with a "paradise" there cant be a real one if its not tainted by evil deeds. nobody would be able to appreciate life if there wasnt pain and a dark side to make them cherish the good moments even more. its a balance both needs to be present in order to assure real living. imagen a "heaven" with only good things in it to happen... that would be the real hell. there would be no purpose nothing to live for and all the joy would become dull very quickly. u get used to it, take it for granted, would have no troubles ... u would decay and stagnate because in order to really feel fulfilled u have to accomplish it urself and not get it served on a golden plate without lifting a finger. but enough of this now i cant explain it well anyway.
it had nothing to do with friendship or anything. i think the sentinels and necro are a very important part of the game. they bring more facets to the game. i help and support my friends but surely not assist them in a task that goes completely against my values.

but anyway enough with this philosophical stuff. i will stop arguing here now and wont engage in any argumentation anymore. there has been by far enough arguing in this topic that didnt go anywhere and i dont want to keep this more off topic

PS: if anybody wants to comment on my philosophies above please pm me i failed to explain it properly here.

So here's some stuff about me:

Pipstickz is a gentleman and a man of honor. When he puts his mind to a project he finds a way to finish it, and he tries to see both sides of an issue. His knowledge of fighting and what is needed to succeed against a given ritual is outstanding.

Pipstickz would make a great king. He's trustworthy, loyal and hardworking. He's very active in MD and also owns my corn. He'd also make a great king because of his ability to lead a group to victory.
-Namespetra

To me, you have always been the joking around type, the type to have a good silly conversation, and that's good, but not exactly the type I would see as being a King.

I am not saying that you would be a bad King, because honestly I don't think I know you well enough to say that. And, compared to the other candidates (Lifeline, Liberty to my knowledge are the only others? I could be wrong), you are just as good.

I'm not sure who I'm going to vote for, but you are definitely a candidate. You are also active, which will go into my decision.

Awi

Pipstickz is a natural born leader, he has helped me many times, with many a dilemma, under his supervision I was able to accomplish much in my creature quests and other personal goals.

After reading three pages of spam and the tearing down of each others role play, I really do hope that there are other candidates who have bid privately for King of Marind Bell. Out of the whole realm there HAS to be another choice. Pip and Lifeline, I have read your arguments and I have to tell you that your not making my vote choice easy. I would hate to have to vote for the Lesser of two Weevils...er I mean Evils.

Challenge:

Any candidates who want to be King write a new thread of WHY you want to be King, and WHAT you plan to do. Qualifications are of no interest to me now. I, along with other players, want to know what YOU, the Candidate, really want to do for Marind Bell and the Realm of Magic Duel. The Past is History. The Present is a Gift. The Future may be planned but is yet to unfold.

Forum Moderators, will you monitor any new threads for King or Queen of Marind Bell and move or delete any postings that obsecure the the original topic?

Voters and fellow residents of Magic Duel. Will you be objective and keep the flaming down to a minimum?

errr i thought pip already wrote what he was gonna do for marind bell...

[quote]As King I would ensure that Marind Bell remains the open land to all and peaceful, Also when given the authority I would ensure and Unbiased reward system for people who do participate in the torch competition as it is not only those of the alliances of Marind Bell whom do so. As King I would work to keep all political ties peaceful and ensure that there are no rash, shameful actions such as with the last war against Necrovion. I would fully support the researching and defense as those are the alliance's goals, but keep things flowing in such a way that there will, hopefully, not be a need for defense other than for the sake of friendly competition.

I would also use the power given to me as king to offer full support to the sparring grounds as they have been always been a crucial part of Marind Bell.

My diplomatic goal for Marind Bell is to be friendly to all lands, but then again, most public doesn't necessarily mean most defenseless. I would like to try a competition for most stats gained in a week, running once per month, perhaps at the same time as heads contest.

Also, I promise to put a Canadian flag on top of Winds Sanctuary :D

PS: I don't really promise to plant a Canadian flag on Winds, or anywhere in MD, but it can't hurt to try!


Key Points:

-Keeping Marind Bell Peaceful by improving diplomatic relations with other lands
-Fair Rewards to those supporting the Land
-Encouraging Defense of Marind Bell
-Support for the Sparring Grounds
-Fair decisions with in Mind with all the citizens of Marind Bell
