The Eagle The Last Republic Newspaper TLRs First Summer Approaches by Colonel Bernhard Klein

As we approach May and TLR’s first summer, I am glad to say that things on the growth front have been indeed very promising. One month after exiting the global war it seemed that the Republic was on the road to a leisurely, albeit comfortable, recovery. But our reconstruction has continued to surpass expectations: as of the 28th of April, only 8,000 units of infrastructure would be needed to return to prewar levels. To put it in perspective, after a loss of just over 49% of the alliance’s infra, only 10% remains to be rebuilt – after a loss of 44% of the alliance’s overall strength, only 17% remains to be made up. Things are indeed looking up in the economic domain for TLR! As for the Republican Guard, the ground forces, once depleted to a low of 164,000 troops, has returned to a formidable force of 270,000. In addition, the Navy of the Republic has expanded significantly from its pre-war force of a mere six ships to a fledgling fleet of 32. Though we have lost several members in the past month, new cadets (and comrades too) take to the ranks of the Republic and offer us a future of hope – a future of promise.

TLR Members Speak Out By KittyKat KittyKat sent a message out to get feedback on how membership feels.

up, I might say something involving The Eagle (aka writing).

How affective do you think the government is at helping members who are having trouble?

I guess I'm willing to help in the aid apartment. I'm not a warmonger, I believe in achieving economic power over military power. To this extent I'm happy to make free aid donations to weaker members for nothing. So as long the money is used well for good intentions.

As the government of the TLR I guess I have the expectation that you protect weaker members from raids. Unless they provoked the attack themselves, Check up on them once in a while to see how are they doing., trades, links to higher powers, setting a foot on the place in which to support other members.

So if you want committed members of the TLR you have to state you expect them to try to strive for that extra mile. I know some will try others will lazy around, that's life you know.

Do you think members are friendly and eager enough to the extra mile whatever may be asked of them?

We do want to hear from you...what can we do to help you and what can you do to help TLR.

I still recall my first week in TLR - I think every council member (and SH was deputy I think) helped me at some point. If any new member ever asks a question of me (which is unfortunately rare) I try to help them out the best I can. From what I've seen on IRC and skype, they seem to make every effort to help when asked to help. I guess the key is to ask questions when you need something clarified.

We need a team of active members willing to use their talents to help make TLR into a strong, meaningful and fun group. The political climate right now is changing dramatically and it is important that we stand strong and grow. Many smaller alliances have disbanded or merged recently, but we are committed to never allowing this to happen to TLR. Council is always open to suggestions and questions. We are here to help everyone be strong individually as then we are strong together. SPEAK UP...............................

How willing are you to help within the alliance and why? Milcom and FA stuff. That's the stuff I find interesting, though if I had to triple

TLRs New Home by zouzou

A lot of changes have been happening in The Last Republic these couple of months and the best is without a doubt the launching of the alliance’s new forum. Even though there was an old forum this was an important event. The old forum had several flaws in it which made it impractical and even annoying to some who used it. Since it was being hosted on a free server it was limited to whatever that host made available. With the new forum the alliance can now hope for unlimited extra features such as the potential to make your own blog and fully customizing the look of the forum to name a couple. On the 31st of March, Stockhunter the Forum Administrator purchased the new domain name: and began working on the project that will certainly impact the alliance in many positive ways. It took 14 days and 3 to 4 hours daily to achieve the initial transfer of topics and initial forum set-up. Some of the first problems he faced was the fact that the new forum software and database needed to be installed on the hosting server before anything could be done. Thankfully there was an option for easily implementing forum software on the domain. Yet after the first step toward completion problems continued to arise, but they were no match for Stockhunter who dismissed them one after the other. After the finishing touches were added, all the old data from the old forum was transferred into the new one: work could once again resume in the heart of the alliance’s new workplace. At the time of the writing of this article there is more than 25 masks (ranks) to try to achieve and over 80 forums and sub-forums where the alliance can work in. Thank You to Stockhunter for making this possible.

Trade Circles By sojourner (information provided by zouzou)

The Internal Affairs Building On the previous page you will find a list of TLR members and some very important information. This list shows the resources, trades slots filled and whether the nation has a harbor. (thanks zouzou for the list) One of the most important things to do when building your nation is to join a trade circle which will allow you to gain valuable bonus resources. Joining in your team color adds even more. Take time to look on the forum at the guides and trade circle openings, check the list here, and contact IA staff or Council with questions.... Help yourself, Help The Last Republic.
