Good morning and happy Patriot’s Day from New England!

Fun fact, Patriots Day is actually a state holiday in Massachusetts, and pretty much nowhere else. I have the day off today! It’s not just because of the Boston Marathon that happens today (Boston Strong!). It commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution, taking place just outside Boston in Lexington and Concord.

Speaking of battles, who’s ready for some news?

This week’s featured image is Altepetl, Yoahtl’s capital. Honestly, this might be the best Yoahtl city to date, with large jungle vistas matching up with the towering buildings around the city as well, it’s very tasteful in terms of greenery, protection, urban design and construction. Very well done and thanks to Quauhtli’n’Mia, you can’t see any sign of a pigeon in this picture! Looking forward to actually taking a look at this on the server.

Featured Article

The Workers’ Party (often abbreviated TWP) is a communist and far-left aligned political party spanning multiple servers on Civ. Originally founded on the Golden Creeper server in Leningrad, when the nation moved to New Leningrad on Civcraft 2.0, the party came along with it. It eventually morphed into other forms on Civcraft 3.0 and Devoted before being refounded by SandFalls in CivClassic 2.0 in Mount Augusta, where it played a major role in its controversial elections, creating the Confederation of Socialist Augusta and taking hold of the Confederation of Cities, Communes, and Protectorates, a nation composed of all the primarily communist nations on the server.

Worker’s Party members consisted of any voting member in Mount Augusta residing in the country with interest in Communism, with its main goals being nationalization, anti-nationalism, anti-imperialism, worker unity and vanguardism. The Worker’s Party also contributed to builds in its territories, including a large stadium in the southwest of Mount Augusta. Today the Worker’s Party’s successor is the Mery Horde on CivMC, however Worker’s Party communes exist in Pavia and Danzilona. (Full article…)

This week’s featured image is the Palace of the Soviets in the Union of Socialist Augusta.

Thanks for reading this week’s (#48) newsletter! This is a very short newsletter. Oh well…

For week 52, I’m hoping to have a screenshot competition as we celebrate both one year of the newsletter as well as one year of CivMC (and two months of CivReign, too). There will be monetary incentives powered by our folks who donated on the Ko-fi, which was totally not the plan, but I have nothing else to use $20 on! More details on that later, including who the judges for the competition are.

Thanks to Creepi0n, Gjum, Hoover, BritishWanderer, NeoTide, Gwua, MechanicalRift, fastestgrass, and jbblocker for helping out with this newsletter.
