As was announced on January 23, 2020, Reformation of The Sacred Order was Initiated by The Grand Inquisitor. And now the time has come for the Three Phases of Reform to begin: Phase One: Reformation Phase Two: Reorganization Phase Three: Ascension High upon the Sacred Mountain, The Grand Inquisitor entered his mountaintop retreat to meditate and prepare for the coming Reformation. As Betelgeuse dims in Orion and the Sacred Numbers aligned in the first Palindrome Day in 909 years on 02/02/2020, a day of Wealth, Abundance, and New Beginnings, The Universe provided ample Confirmations and Agreements that the time of Reformation has arrived. That time is Today, a Master Number day on the Calendar. "I, Westwind, Grand Inquisitor of The Sacred Order of the West Pacific, hereby Invoke the Fourteenth of the The Thirty-Six Stratagems of Ancient China; Jiè shī huán hún (借屍還魂／借尸还魂):" "Take an institution, a technology, a method, or even an ideology that has been forgotten or discarded .... ..Revive something from the past by giving it a new purpose or bring to life old ideas, customs, or traditions and reinterpret them..." The Sacred Order of The West Pacific was built upon Foundations and Ideals that pre-date The Sacred Order. Thus, The Seven Concepts shall remain in our Heart through this Reformation: The Guidance of Max and Admin The Primacy of Game Mechanics The Authorities of Delegates and Founders The Sovereignty of Regions and Nations The Rights and Obligations of Rebellion The Necessity of Activity in it's Many Forms The Harmonies and Diversities of Communities All with Respect and Thankfulness for NationStates Creator Max Barry, the Beneficent actions of his Administrators and Moderators, and all Players that have Enlivened the Spirit of the Game. Today, I announce the Phase One Reformation. From this time forward we shall no longer be known as The Sacred Order of The West Pacific,and today restore our Foundations as, The Crimson Order Phase One Reformation: 1. The Sacred Order, while no longer an organization with membership, shall remain in our Hearts, in recognition of the Many Orders of NationStates that adhere (formally or informally) to The Seven Concepts. 2. The Crimson Order, being Inter-regional in scope, shall no longer append "of The West Pacific", or any other regional name to it's designation, except in cases where a Local Regional Membership or Individual Membership may append the name of the Region in which they reside. 3. The Grand Inquisitor of The Sacred Order is hereby Reformed and Restored as The Crimson King. 4. The Crimson Order shall be Reorganized in Phase Two by Decree of The Crimson King. 5. All Members in Good Standing of The Sacred Order are now Members of The Crimson Order. 6. All titles of The Sacred Order are hereby Translated to The Crimson Order, until otherwise Reformed in Phase Two. 7. Members-in-Waiting shall attain Ascension to The Crimson Order in Phase Three. Thank you for your kind attention and May the Blessings of Max and ADMIN be upon you! Hail The Crimson Order!

Sorry for the late forum publication.... Press Release From the Office of The Grand Inquisitor of The Sacred Order The West Pacific January 23, 2020 Greetings to all Friends and Members of The Sacred Order of The West Pacific! It is my privilege to announce to you today that a long overdue overhaul and impending Reformation of The Sacred Order has been initiated by this Office. Under consideration of The Grand Inquisitor are a number of Reforms, as The Sacred Order looks forward into the new Decade in NationStates. These Reforms will be announced as they are implemented. Reforms will aim to bring greater relevance, recognition and organization to The Sacred Order, as well as to modernize membership and purpose in alignment with the current State of The Game of NationStates. The Foundations of the Ideals of The Sacred Order will remain true: The Primacy of NationStates Game Mechanics, The Sovereignty of Individual Nations, The Inherent Authorities of Delegates and Founders, and The Necessity of Activity. Cardinals, Knights, and all members of The Sacred Order of The West Pacific, are hereby given Official Notice of The Impending Reformation of The Sacred Order. A bit of history. The Sacred Order of The West Pacific Imperium was announced six years ago on February 11, 2014, in order to provide a theme for the Imperium Government of The West Pacific under Grand Inquisitor and Delegate All Good People. That change was unanimously ratified by The Holy Grand Assembly of the West on February 22, 2014. "Take a look at the use of a theme in Lazarus as a recent example. Or look to the longevity of the NPO. Or the successful works to bring activity to a dead NationStates with The Crimson Order and others. Look to our fellow GCRs. In addition to Lazarus and The Pacific; Balder has its Nordic theme, Osiris has its Egyptian theme. The Rejected Realms has it's defender focus, and The East Pacific has adopted defenderism along with its Masonic backgrounds and long history of RolePlay. The South Pacific focuses on it's form of Democracy and widening it's military activity. The North Pacific is a bastion of legislation, legalism, and debate." Following the Delegacy of [nation]All Good People[/nation], the Sacred Order of The West Pacific continued as a non-governmental entity within The West Pacific, with relationships that extend outside of the region. This continues to be the status of The Sacred Order today, while The West Pacific has progressed through time into the Imperial China theme that was announced by then Emperor and Delegate [nation]The Holy Principality of Saint Mark[/nation] one year ago tomorrow, January 24, 2019. A listing of the Membership, Titles, and Organization of The Sacred Order of The West Pacific as it exists prior to Reformation can be reviewed here: https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=218063 Thank you for your kind attention and May the Blessings of Max and ADMIN be upon you! Westwind of All Good People, Grand Inquisitor of The Sacred Order of The West Pacific
*raises his hands to the heavens in supplication before turning to stand before the region* My friends and fellow nations of The West Pacific. I have proposed and offered the opportunity for the region to vote upon the adoption of The Sacred Order to lead and guide our great region and government into the vast reaches of the future that lay ahead of us. I, the Delegate of The West Pacific and Imperator of The Imperium, along with the Guardians, and with a vote of 23 in favor to 12 against, have opted to agree to this adoption. The Government of The West Pacific remains the Imperium, there is no change there with the exception that I will adopt new titles for those positions within my authority. I ask The Concillium to consider my proposed name change to The Holy Grand Assembly of The West, with the Speaker's title to become The Bishop of The Grand Assembly. I recognize The Concillium's right to consider it's own name. We have been having this discussion about ways to increase activity in our region here in the Holy Ministry for Domestic Affairs. A regional theme is one means by which to achieve this. Take a look at the use of a theme in Lazarus as a recent example. Or look to the longevity of the NPO. Or the successful works to bring activity to a dead NationStates with The Crimson Order and others. Look to our fellow GCRs. In addition to Lazarus and The Pacific; Balder has its Nordic theme, Osiris has its Egyptian theme. The Rejected Realms has it's defender focus, and The East Pacific has adopted defenderism along with its Masonic backgrounds and long history of RolePlay. The South Pacific focuses on it's form of Democracy and widening it's military activity. The North Pacific is a bastion of legislation, legalism, and debate. Once I posted the ingame poll on the Sacred Order and Dispatch listing detailed titles, I have had a number of nations contacting with interest in recieving titles in the Sacred Order. These are nations that have not been heard from before, and have had no participation in the region. Does that mean they will become more active ? No. But it does show evidence of ingame interest in such themeing. And interest is needed in order to harness that interest into activity. Yet, it is the labor of love that you each provide to The West Pacific that can cultivate opportunity into action and activity. I will continue to do my job to maintain the Delegacy and ensure the security of the region. I will continue to direct policy with the valuable advice of the Guardians, and the valuable ideas and advice of our Holy Ministers and The Bishop of The Grand Assembly (sorry, Speaker). Domestic Affairs (Interior) must be proactive in providing opportunity for our community to come together in activity and building a team to work together to inform our nations of how they can get involved. Foreign Affairs must be timely in providing regular updates to our Embassies, and recruiting and maintaining our Ambassador Team. World Assembly Affairs must be available for all our WA nations for interpretation and assistance. Our Military must continue to grow and be active, becoming an ever more effective tool for activity and presenting The West Pacifican ideals to NationStates, a force that our friends and allies can count upon to join with them to remove the deadwood from NationStates, and protect us from those that would impose their false morals upon us. While subject to adjustment, I present to you the new titles of The Sacred Order of The West Pacific Imperium: The Sacred Order of The West Pacific: "No one expects The West Pacific Inquisition! But they probably should." Delegate and Guardians: The Grand Inquisitor, Westwind of All Good People The Cardinal Guardian of the Eternal Dungeons, Yy4u The Cardinal Guardian of Chocolate Righteousness, Darkesia The Cardinal Guardian Protector of the West, Wickedly Evil People. The Cardinal Guardian of the Most Evil, Bhang Bhang Duc Non-World Assembly Delegate TAO the Watcher, Unquestioning Raconteur of the West. Holy Ministries of the Sacred Order: For World Assembly Affairs, Treize Dreizehn For Foreign Affairs, Intelligent Holograms For Domestic Affairs, Charax Again, I ask The Concillium to consider the name change I have proposed, and the TWP Armed Forces will take the opportunity to consider it's name. Thank you all, and may the blessings of ADMIN and The Architect, with the mysteries of The Watchmaker in mind, be upon each and every one of you. Westwind of All Good People Grand Inquisitor of The Sacred Order of The West Pacific Imperium
