Birth of TRR's Diplomatic Corps in earnest
Neq holding a press conference after a long meeting with his secretary, Ann
Although our ambassadors have long been referred to internally as our Diplomatic Corps, our recent embassy assignment overhaul and adoption of new expectations have led to the birth of the Corps in earnest.
For you, this overhaul means either someone new has been assigned as your ambassador after preferencing your region highly or your continuing ambassador has had some of their prior ambassadorial duties divvied out and can now focus more time on our friendship with your region.
As for how our new expectations will play out, you are going to be seeing our ambassadors a lot more! Our ambassadors will continue to play their pivotal role of delivering our Foreign Updates, keeping you up-to-date on all things the Rejected Realms from upcoming events to the latest happenings, but they will also now be inviting you to our events in your RMB (and Discord servers) in a more consistent fashion. We want to build an enduring relationship with you that goes beyond posting infrequent updates!
We hope this more personalised experience will encourage more of our allies and friends to attend our regional holiday celebrations as well as participate in our interregional and invitational projects, such as The Rejected Times' Outlander Program. We look forward to seeing much more of you as well!
Officer Elections Conclude in the Rejected Realms
By Aga (from The Rejected Times)
Speaker Dyl removing Minsk after he was eliminated
The Rejected Realms' December 2020 Officer elections concluded on the 9th of December, with Nakari, Jamie, Robespierre, and Nequedum emerging victorious, in that order. Nakari was assigned the role of Officer of Culture, Nequedum made Officer of Foreign Affairs, Jamie given Officer of the World Assembly, and Robespierre assigned as "Officer without Portfolio".
The elections were highly competitive, with Kral and Minskiev also running. You can read more, including coverage on each of the elected Officers' campaigns, from The Rejected Times in Brief News III.
Your Invitation to Rejectmas 2020
Neq having a serious chat with Rejects about keeping AI Dungeon contributions PG this year
We invite you to celebrate another hairy and smooth Rejectmas with us!
Every year, from 26th December to 1st January, the Rejected Realms celebrates Rejectmas. This is a holiday to celebrate being a Reject! (Though non-Rejects are welcome to join in, of course.)
Activities will again be divided between gameside, discordside, and forumside (yes, discordside is a thing now, shush!).
Gameside we have the Lord of Misrule taking over our RMB, a Card scavenger hunt, and a flag contest where the winner will have their flag flown during New Year's Day! Discordside we have a Home Alone movie night on the 29th and a game of Popmaster on the 26th! And last but not least, forumside we are yet again decorating the Rejectmas Tree, adventuring thanks to AI Dungeon, and running our 4th annual chess competition!
Show Rejectmas 2020 some love by upvoting our dispatch, and keep an eye on the dispatch as links and updates are added throughout the holiday.
Sneak Peek: Harry Potter and the Festival of Friends
Harry Potter and the Festival of Friends, this year brought to you by the Rejected Realms, 10000 Islands, Greater Dienstad, The East Pacific, and The South Pacific, will be taking place once again. From the 30th of December to the 6th of January, there will be everything you have come to expect and much much more!
Activities will include art and writing competitions, Yule Ball roleplay, a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure game, multiple movie nights (I bet you can guess what we'll be watching), and a whole range of games!
The Discord server will be advertised on the 28th, allowing for sorting to commence—although Slytherin will no doubt win again.
