Why are there so many entries specifically mentioning Astholm? It's kind of jarring, no other nation is getting near that many name drops.

Mod Question-

Is there a Star Wars Mod for this game?

Only the first section of examples (tropes about the actual game part) should be kept. The rest need to be deleted. Particularly the "Forum 7" section which consists entirely of in-jokes about posters on an off-topic board.

If you want to list examples from a Nationstates roleplay you did, you should follow the example of others and create a page about it. Or maybe find the Troper Tales wiki if that is actually a thing.

I added a Troper Tales page where people can list the Tropes that apply to their nations. Let the troping begin anew!

This was on the previous discussion system, but I'll say it here since... well, I can.

90% of the stuff in this page is Troper Tales stuff from the roleplaying forum stuff. Stuff that means absolutely nothing to a person reading this page because he or she wants to know what the game is about.

To that end, I'll be editing the page. I'm not going to delete anything, but I'm going to split the examples between Actual Game Stuff and Non Game Stuff.

This needs a massive cleanup. All sorts of circle jerky junk has been added by people to make themselves look better and flame people they dislike.

I did some work on this to remove a lot of the pointless chestbeating/flaming.

No offense, but the page was a lot more interesting before you edited it. Even if most of the things you deleted didn't make much sense to people who never played the game, it would give them incentive to look them up and maybe start playing the game themselves.

Not really the point of the page, or the web-site. Natter, This Troper and subjective opinions have no place here, and as somebody who could lovingly create a whole page about his own nation (And don't think I haven't already done it in my mind) I still agree it doesn't belong.

Pages on games should not have "I did this" or "This was a hard part;" they should have examples of tropes present within the game itself, and Nation XXXXX being ruled by a Complete Monster is not an aspect of the game, but is an aspect of the player playing the game. It belongs in Troper Tales.

Did some more cleanup to fix some things I missed.
