For military preparedness, TKR requires all of our members to maintain a warchest of resources required for war.  Are you ok with this? (Y/N)

If TKR asks you to go to war where your nation may take heavy damages, would you do it?

What made you pick TKR over other alliances?

[9:53 PM] wild_toa: yes
[9:53 PM] Indger: If TKR asks you to go to war where your nation may take heavy damages, would you do it?
[9:54 PM] wild_toa: most likely, but if it is unnecessary damages I would question
[9:55 PM] Indger: 👍 .what do you mean by unnecessary damages?
[9:56 PM] wild_toa: war comes with a price of course, but if the cost was exaggerated greatly for little or no point, I would question why
[9:56 PM] Indger: Okay
[9:56 PM] Indger: Have you played any similar nation sim games before (example: cybernations, nationstates): (Y/N)   If yes, which alliances were you in, and for how long?

[9:57 PM] Indger: What made you pick TKR over other alliances?
[9:58 PM] wild_toa: I had applied to Name Withheld, however they had too many people applying at the time. I was referred here by one of their members
[9:58 PM] Indger: Ohh!cool!
[9:58 PM] Indger: How active will you be?
What time zone will you usually play the game in?
[9:58 PM] wild_toa: I am in the Chicago time zone
[9:59 PM] wild_toa: for activity, I am fairly active on checking P&W (but not always doing stuff there). for discord, I am on every few days, but sometimes more often
[10:00 PM] wild_toa: slack I just rely on my email notifications to check it (though that may be too many if its for P&W?)
[10:00 PM] Indger: That's great! But I do have few more questions. Just few more questions and we're done! Let's get to know a bit more about you.
What would you do if TKR would ask you to do something which you do not want to do? (We never ask people to break the game rules). Explain.
[10:01 PM] wild_toa: depends on how much I disagree with the order
[10:01 PM] wild_toa: if it is minor, I would
[10:02 PM] Indger: What do you consider as major?
[10:02 PM] wild_toa: if it is something I severely disagree with, I would question the reasoning
[10:02 PM] wild_toa: um
[10:02 PM] wild_toa: unprovoked war
[10:03 PM] wild_toa: acts that would majorly harm my nation (other than war, as there is always the chance of losing there)
[10:03 PM] wild_toa: things along those lines
[10:04 PM] Indger: Okay
[10:04 PM] Indger: we advise our newcomers ,not to build above 4 cities,reason we will tell you later,Do you agree?
[10:05 PM] wild_toa: I believe I have five, but why?
[10:06 PM] Indger: Because one gets more loot when they are on less cities
[10:06 PM] wild_toa: ah
[10:06 PM] wild_toa: makes sense
[10:07 PM] wild_toa: what should I do about my extra city?
[10:08 PM] Indger: Destroying it will be better.You will earn more .One of our member came down to one city from 5 cities and is now raiding 150m each week
[10:08 PM] Indger: You can destroy Destral
[10:08 PM] wild_toa: alright
[10:08 PM] wild_toa: ok
[10:09 PM] wild_toa: I will take care of that tomorrow (in my time zone) if that is alright, as its getting a bit late here
[10:09 PM] Indger: What are your expectations for TKR?
[10:09 PM] Indger: i have 3 more questions only.
[10:10 PM] wild_toa: a community that I can look to for guidance when I need it, that I in turn can help when other members need help
[10:10 PM] Indger: You have come at the right place
[10:10 PM] Indger: Explain in your own words, which kind of a nation you want to become, and what kind of help you expect from TKR in this:
[10:12 PM] wild_toa: I would like to have a nation that has respectable economic and military strength, but also retain a 100-high 90s approval rating with low(ish) pollution (because I for some reason care about those a bit)
[10:12 PM] Indger: 👍
[10:12 PM] Indger: What can you bring into TKR? Why would we want to accept you?
[10:12 PM] wild_toa: TKR can help me achieve this with guidance where needed
[10:13 PM] Indger: Yes,you will be assigned a mentor who will help you with everything
[10:13 PM] wild_toa: I would like to help newer players once I am more experienced, as I would like to give back to groups (or individuals) who help me
[10:14 PM] wild_toa: as for why you would accept me, I can be an active community member (once I warm up to you guys), and will help others if they need it
[10:15 PM] Indger: LAst question
[10:15 PM] Indger: What makes a good alliance and what makes a good member?
[10:15 PM] wild_toa: a good alliance supports all of its members, old and new, and has a good community
[10:17 PM] wild_toa: a good member is respectful, and can take advice (and other's opinions) in a good manner, but can still have their own opinions and thoughts (bringing them up when it is suitable)
[10:18 PM] Indger: Thats great!thank you! i am done!now i will forward your application 
Over to you @Internal Affairs  @WarriorSoul @Kyu're here forever
[10:18 PM] wild_toa: I think I used "good" a bit much. hmmm...

You've been accepted into The Knights Radiant academy.
Please read the guides and take the entrance exam in Steps 1-3. The exam isn't difficult, it's more so meant to ensure that you know where the guides and other important information is within the alliance. It should take 10-15 minutes tops. You will find the exam in the end of each step.
All information needed is provided in this subforum: http://www.knightsradiant.pw/forum/21-the-academy
You will have 72 hours to complete the exams.

not yet, I got through the first part. unfortunate life got busy for a bit, and while I've been able to check P&W occasionally, I havent been able to complete it. I have a to-do list of stuff for this weekend though, and this is on it

(what are the rules on multi-posting here? I forgot)

 

I have a question:

would it be beneficial to both the alliance as a whole and my nation to run a resource farm and sell stuff? the reason behind this is that I have a farm town (Le-Koro), and I sold 5,000 food a while back. Im already getting back up there a bit, and my farm town isnt all that efficient, as it was originally built to keep my nation self sufficient (before I joined TKR), but I made a good sum of money off of it. that, combined with other resources and base income would be more than enough to allow me to keep a somewhat large military ready at all times.

the other major reason is simple: the academy (which unfortunately got pushed back a bit more) recommends that everybody simply buy food and other resources, but those have to come from somewhere, right? and wouldnt it be more beneficial to have money flowing from your alliance back to your alliance, instead of into independent nations or other alliance's nations? especially when it would also bring the benefit of a large(ish?) military to be ready at a moment's notice?

(just to note, I wouldnt have gouging prices, I actually sold the 5,000 for a bit less than the going price at the time, and it went within the first five minutes of posting the offer. also, on the flow of money, it would allow for money to flow into the alliance from outside nations.)

 

I guess let me know if I should go for it or finish the academy
