[list][*][b]The Conga Line[/b]: The Conga Line is an effort to allow Gala guests to visit other regions' Discord servers and meet their people. Please be kind and courteous while visiting.  
[*][b]Character Contest[/b]: Design a character and we'll draw it!
[*][b]Defender Games[/b]: Take some time to come compete against your fellow defenders, try out new things, and have some fun during update with challenges and games! These games will be broken up into 3 different components: team, individual, and regional as well as be hosted during both minor and major, depending on the day. This should allow the maximum amount of people to participate and provide a wide variety of experiences of what defending looks like.
[*][b]Defender History Events[/b] 
[list][*][b]Defender History Essay[/b]: [nation]Numero Capitan[/nation] has written an essay about defender history that will be shared as part of the event. 
[*][b]Defender Tapestry[/b]: A visual representation of defender history, the Tapestry will sew together the timeline of the Regional Sovereignty cause, aiming to represent each organization the way they wish to be remembered.
[*][b]Defender Family Tree[/b]: The Defender Family Tree traces the history of defender mentors and mentees.[/list]
[*][b]Evening Game Series[/b]: On some evenings, we'll be hosting a casual game on our Discord which anyone is welcome to join!
[*][b]Trading Card Events[/b]: Using the NS Trading Cards feature, we'll be hosting three collecting contests and a pull event. Two collecting contests will focus on defending -- one on collecting defender switchers and another on collecting influential defenders. Another contest will focus on creatively compiling cards obtained from packs opened during a detag run. And finally there will be a pull event for Season 1 Anime Daisuki. As always, there will be trading card rewards. 
[*][b]Why We Defend panel[/b]: The Why We Defend panel will focus on outlining a call to arms for defenders and defending in NationStates.
[*][b]Nation Creation Contest[/b]: A fun way to play an issues-focused game competitive, the [region]TIC Nation Creation Contest[/region] involves ejecting the bottom ranking puppets in each daily World Census Report ranking until a winner can be crowned!
[*][b]Advocating Defender Values in the Security Council[/b]: This will include an instructive essay/Q&A from the most prolific Security Council author in history [nation]Kuriko[/nation] followed by a group effort to write and pass a WA Security Council Commendation for a prominent defender. 
[*][b]Defender Awards[/b]: A classic![/list][/box]
