Ben morgun and welcome to the 2015 RUMP convention! Seven days where the party will define itself, redefine itself, and have a dang good time. I'll hope you'll join us.
To get the basics out of the way, this thread will be for speeches and announcements. The Floor thread will be for party member voting, and the Gallery thread is for general chit chat and revelry.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the RUMP's founding, a history of which I have witnessed about one percent. But that's one of the great things about Talossa - there's always new folks coming in, new ideas, new dreams and new dreamers. At the same time, Talossa draws it's strength from its long history and proud culture. In the RUMP, we work to acknowledge the old and elevate the new, to strike the balance that keeps Talossa healthy and ever-growing while still firmly rooted.
The RUMP isn't opposed to change. We have a long record of reforms, which I'll leave to be better enumerated by those who had the pride of enacting them. We want to keep what works, and fix what doesn't. We want a friendly, active Talossa for all. We want to find common ground with our fellow citizens, whether on political issues or cultural - the RUMP is proud to boast an active contingent of Ladintschen and cultural contributors, including the man who literally wrote the book on ár glheþ, the translator of Tolkien and Lovecraft, and the editor of the only newspaper currently on the stands. The RUMP stands for fun, and for getting things done.
As I said, I hope you'll join us this week. It's an exciting time for the RUMP, and you'll see us set out our goals and principles for all to consider. And with that, it's time to get moving. ¡Qe noi venadrent, Talossa!
