A Guide to XKI for Ambassadors and Friends
Welcome to 10000 Islands! If you’re reading this, you’re either here as an ambassador from a region with which we have established an embassy, or just here as a friend from another region. If you’re an ambassador, we’re delighted to have you here as a representative. If you’re just a friend, the same applies to you! We have put together a guide to the region specifically for diplomats and friends of the Islands. Without further ado, let’s get started.
Friend- a visitor from another region. Usually it's one we have diplomatic relations with, but this is not always true.
Ambassador- an official representative from a region we have an embassy with.
XKI/10ki- abbreviation for 10000 Islands
Emissary- these are our representatives to other regions. Ambassadors can see who their counterpart is by going here. As our formal allies, Texas and Yggdrasil receive XKI ambassadors instead of emissaries.
Council of Nine- our legislative body. The Council makes laws and acts as the judicial branch. It is made up of the Chief Executive, the Delegate, Ministers of Education, Immigration, and Labor, and our four Senators.
First things first, you need to be masked as an ambassador. Once you’ve registered on the forums, head to the Registration and Welcome Thread and post in there, making sure to state that you are an ambassador and the region you hail from.
Generally the same process applies as above. Follow the posting instructions and make sure to state the region you’re from.
Once you’ve been masked, feel free to make a new topic in the same board and introduce yourself. Ambassadors have the added option of returning to Ambassador’s Row and finding their embassy in the list of threads. Ambassadors: that thread is your place to introduce yourself on behalf of your region to the rest of the Islands, as well as the place to post any updates from your region.
II. Things to do in the Islands
This is our board for games and spam. In it we have numerous threads of obscure Taco Island events and spam threads that have been crafted and expanded upon by our finest spammers. Feel free to take part in any or all of these threads. Spam to your heart’s content!
In addition, Taco Island is the stop in the region to play forum games. XKI is known far and wide for its popular and frequent Werewolf games. We also sometimes play Resistance. If you have a game you want to play, make a thread and garner some interest! You’ll undoubtedly have lots of takers.
Participate in the Economy
Our region has a formal economy known as tacos which can be used for a variety of things, including but not limited to:
Buying shop items
Gambling in the Casino
Paying for services from a private business
Paying for campaign ads
In addition, one can earn these tacos in an even greater variety of ways from simply posting, to holding a paying job, to payouts from shop items. For a full list of ways to earn tacos in the region, peruse this list: 10000islands.proboards.com/thread/28330/ways-make-money-10000-islands
Want to try your hand at gambling? Make your way to the region’s best Casino and bet your hard earned tacos in a variety of raffles, games, and the lottery. Many a visitor have become the envy of the region after winning big and hitting jackpots. And you could be the next!
Join a House
Here in 10000 Islands, some of our most renowned members have established Houses: places of community, merriment, and competition. As an ambassador/friend, you have the privilege to become an honorary member of a House at the discretion of the House Leader. Simply find the House you wish to join and request membership in the thread. You can read the “Guide on Houses” for more information.
Start a Business
Our Marketplace has a variety of businesses started by Islanders and friends alike. If you have a service you wish to provide while also making a profit, start your own business! The Islands will surely be better off with it. Make sure to read the “How to Start a Business” thread to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Are you the RPing type? Then stop by our roleplaying board and weave the history and lore of your nation to your heart’s content. Or participate in roleplay outside of your nation in a variety of different categories. Admittedly our roleplaying scene is a little inactive, but a breath of life from interested friends is always welcome.
Ever wanted to take a class on politics or culture? Or maybe you prefer debating on a variety of IRL topics. Maybe you even want to teach a class on a subject you have a lot of knowledge and/or enthusiasm in! If so, the University is the place for you! There you can do all of those things and more. The University welcomes new teachers, classes, and students, and even has a large variety of clubs for your indulgence. All are welcome, so stop by or enroll today!
There’s even a dedicated Discord server for the University if you wish to join: discord.gg/n6xkYKg
