    Auckland is just way too spread out and busy. I loooove Wellington and Dunedin as places to live... the atmosphere is amazing. There are some lovely charming small towns around too.

                                                                     Necromanctic to the core,

    New Zealand also gave the world the pavlova, don't forget.

    Achaea is a 24/7 game, makes sense that a few antipodeans would find their way to the night shift :)

    I love how a NZ thread starts up and the good-natured insults start flying across the Aus/NZ ditch.

    Pavlova, Pineapple Lumps, Mince (read meat) pies, Hokey Pokey Ice Cream, Anzac and Afgan Biscuits....

    Australia gave us Lamingtons though, so maybe it is a fair trade.

    I am thankful to NZ for L&P and Flight of the Conchords.

    You might be an Achaean kiwi if you...

     * see an Achaea promotion with tiny miniature versions of shop goods sold around Sapience, and know what the reference material was

     * feel the urge to perform a mass tribal chant and dance before every city CTF

     * start posting "yeah right." posters around Delos

     * claim customary fishing rights as an ex-Shallamese to the Peshwar Delta

     * your first cooking design submitted was for a sandwich with a black yeasty paste

     * or if you designed a "white sprats fritter"

     * you become Imperiate and institute a 15% tax on shop profits and 30% tax on all hunting gold to run a centralised herb and mineral cures distribution centre for all Cyrenians

     * you become Tyrannus and your first city project is to develop alchemically modified killer sheep to release in the Ithmias

     * you're a citizen of City X and wish that the bigger City Y next door would stop buying all your crafting designs and claiming them as their own

    Oh I am SO tempted to post "Yeah Right" posters around the place XD

     * you wonder why there's so much snow at Logosmas and look for the nearest beach instead

    Don't forget instead of having a big Logosmas dinner with all the trimmings, heading to the beachside, making a firebox and barbecuing food instead >_>

    Are we talking Vegemite or Bovril here?

    Also, I had a NZ customer say he wanted to courier a chilly bin. It took me 10 minutes to realise he meant an esky.

    Re Chocoades - I've never had them but people kept raving about them for some reason. Something about some lady petitioned for their return after a 20 year hiatus?

    NZ Equivalent is Marmite  (Yes I know there is a UK "Marmite", but in NZ it is sold under an alternate name, "Our Mate" or something like that)

    I prefer marmite on toast and in marmite and chip sandwiches. I prefer vegemite on baguettes.

    Is a proud kiwi, thinks marmite tastes like shit :(

    (this is not text for a "yeah right" billboard)

    I love basically everything else to come from this country ever, but I'll never sully my morning toast with that black sludge!

    Each to their own.  I love using the stuff as a practical joke for people visiting from overseas, letting them try some at breakfast then watching as they treat it like something like nutella and spread it almost 1cm thick when you are meant to use the BARE minimum (thin enough that you can see the toast underneath)

    @Alkaid we do that with Vegemite here and tell them it's the dregs of beer. It's a good laugh watching their face implode, but then I give them a mini jar of it and tell them to try it as a marinade on roast lamb. Changes their mind pretty quickly as it's pretty good.
