Who we are

It is very nice to have a shiny new home. I thank you for making our small part so nice.
This may not be the norm but that has never been a problem for me.
More important and useless posts to follow.

Gentle Persons

The dog days of summer lay hard upon us now. The political discourse of Digiterra hangs tepidly as we move through a season of quietude. This leads to the silence of discourse upon many a forum and I most embassies. This can of course be a good thing for the development of nations and alliances but gives head to boredom and disquiet.

The Rosular Kingdom recognizes that this leads to a dull embassy and thus seeks to enliven ours by introducing a new monthly feature. Each month we shall provide the kernel of discussion on a particular question. What is the best………………..

This we seek to do because the great broad range of Digiterra contains the wisdom of a wide variety of thought, age and experience. There are always lists a plenty when a best of discussion ensues and we shall provide one each time to start the discussion. Sadly those list oft tend only to the current, popular of most well known. We are hoping however to engender the thoughtful gathering of those hidden gems or time past issues that have not seen the more recent light. We also know that not all Digiterran leaders hail form the same neither geographic nor cultural centre nor thus we shall be able to curry from others those joys that they may not yet be aware of. So we invite all to provide names, and reasons for their choices. If they choose to provide links we would be all the more blessed.

Our first query
The best battle scene in a movie…………..

A standard list
10. Gladiator Battle in Germania
9. Ran Attack on Hidetora’s Castle
8. Tora! Tora! Tora! Attack on Pearl Harbour
7. Braveheart Battle of Stirling
6. The Two Towers Helm’s Deep
5. Henry V The Battle of Agincourt
4. A Bridge Too Far Parachute Drop
3. Glory The Storming of Fort Wagner
2. 300 The Battle of Thermopylae
1. Saving Private Ryan Omaha Beach Landing
Our potential alternatives less well known :) No Order

The Longest Day the Beach Landings
The Almo (John Wayne of Course) Final Siege Battle
Serenity Epic Space Battle
Red Cliff Final Assault at Night
Battle of Britain Crescendo Assault
Zulu Final Assault
Charge of the Light Brigade Fatal Charge
Gettysburg Battle on Little Round Top
Narnia Prince Caspian The Second Battle of Beruna
Alexander the Great (1956) Battle of Babylon

We welcome one and all to add to these our cherished memories by bringing other ideas to bear.

Respectfully
Dame Hime Themis

Going after the sniper in 'Full Metal Jacket' was a good one.

Where they make a desert, they call it peace.

Independence is a spirit that is dear to us. Non-intervention is not indifference; it is a belief that Digiterra can be made a better place when not all play the political game.

Independence does not mean isolation. We are aware of the rumors that swirl, but try not to engage when neutrality is questioned or disparaged. Neither of us are neutral. There are however those we admire who have chosen that path; just as we admire those who have worked hard in the political arena to become true forces. We do nevertheless have friends we have gathered and admired quietly through our times here on Digiterra.

We are not the same. Our core values remain a constant, except how and why we move the way we do makes us different but close. If we were of one mind, we would have merged, not form some bloc of theoretical sameness nor sign some treaty of undying love never to be broken. We could have simply declared, as others have, that we will defend anyone we choose to because we can. We see this as neither fair nor honest.

Therefore, we feel it only right (as is our way) to declare openly that should the dogs of war, that hunt all too frequently in packs, seek to target what they believe is easy prey, a solitary old tiger, will find that tigers may not hunt in packs but should they be threatened they can and will stand together to defend the concept and importance of the ideal of independence. It is our way to fight for principles, not names or benefits. Those who hold true to this deserve our support.

This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

To this we thus commit, we seek no advantage against any nor will we yield to isolation any of these our friends should the need of defense be thrust unbidden upon one of us. This, our fair and open proclamation, we offer in advice to those who might think that any of us would remain alone. They will not.

Go bid thy master well advise himself,
If we may pass, we will; if we be hinder'd,
We shall your tawny ground with your red blood
Discolour: and so Montjoy, fare you well.
The sum of all our answer is but this:
We would not seek a battle, as we are;
Nor, as we are, we say we will not shun it.

Hime Themis,

My apologies for not being as eloquent, but despite the fact I have supported OBR indirectly for a long time, I just don't get your RP. This has been an obstacle to having good communications with OBR (for me, anyway).

I would enjoy chatting with y'all in your mode of conversation but am at a loss as to how to do so.

Can you advise on the matter? I have an extensive reading background in most all fantasy & sci-fi prior to 1985. (used to be able to speak many made up languages and all).
