Hello! We’ve released the following statement alongside our allies in XKI, Euro, and TL related to recruitment in the upcoming F/S update:
Recruitment in the Frontier and Stronghold Era
As the much-anticipated Frontiers and Strongholds update draws closer to greatly re-shaping the NationStates world, many questions have been raised in the public discourse that it will be incumbent on the regions and communities of the world to answer.
One such issue is the nature of recruitment and how a post-F/S world will approach it, with speculation occuring on whether or not frontier regions will continue to perform active recruitment in addition to whatever nation spawns they may receive.
Recruitment, especially the more effective forms thereof, is a serious matter. It is the cornerstone of any successful User-Created Region, one that they cannot thrive without. As sizable User-Created Regions, we have all put countless hours and intense organizational effort into building quality recruitment infrastructure. Additionally, we have no firm concept of what return on investment an individual Frontier can expect during the immediate stages of F/S, or the eventual stabilization of the update and the climate surrounding it. It would be careless and irresponsible to entertain the suspension of our current growth infrastructure without first seeing what the return on investment for a successful Frontier region would look like. Abandoning our recruitment frameworks to rely on an unknown and irregular number of nation spawns would undoubtedly open our communities up to security vulnerabilities that we are not interested in creating. Furthermore, with manual recruitment being a centerpiece of Internal Affairs and Integration participation, we do not see it appropriate to reduce avenues for activity and contribution within our regions The direction in which Frontiers and Strongholds will take UCR management and growth is still far too nebulous to choose stagnation over growth.
In recognition of these factors, the signed regions affirm to the public our intent to continue engaging in telegram recruitment at our discretion and consistent with pre-existing treaties following the rollout of the Frontier/Stronghold update. Our regions’ size and credibility is in no small part the result of these programs, and we will continue to utilize them to our best efforts for the benefit of our communities and allies.
Thank you for delivering this update. I can’t say I’m shocked or dismayed by this proclamation

February Featured Warden: Kanglia
Constable Bestinor Sightings Confirmed
Fanatic fans of TGW will be happy to hear of the latest promotion of Warden Constable Westinor!
Another godtier rank up for our roster? Can never have too many! West has been kicking butt and taking names as a defender which their much welcomed experience in R/D paying off dividends in the sieges on England. Personally front-lining much of the triggering for the operation, west has owned how they can thrive in the responsibilities of an officer role and relentlessly rally fellow troops alongside them during update.
Their talent hardly ends there, though, as they’ve stepped into a defining role preparing TGW’s frontiers for the upcoming F/S update without missing a beat when offered such a large challenge. More than that has been how west has invested themselves in TGW as a community and defending as a whole, constantly uplifting others and bringing encouragement as they go. All of this and more makes me ecstatic to bring west onto the Constable roster, and, like each up and coming member of our Command, see what they accomplish going forward — because you know it’s going to be unreal!
Congratulations to the new Warden-Constable!
