A Message from the Supreme Harmonious

Therefore, we humbly ask that you add an exception for our site – stormygrove.net – in AdBlock/uBlock Origin or whatever you use. Thanks, and solidarity in Harmony! 🙂

Speaking of supporting each other, the Nation appreciates contributions to the Commons of Squallbonde, from all when able.

After all, “From each according to his ability; to each according to his Need…” & we live by that! 🙂

If you got that class, then what you’ve seen so far has definitely piqued your interest! How to join, you ask? Well, there’s a couple ways.

  1. Perhaps the easiest is to join our Discord server, follow the instructions, and self-check-in to being part of this great Project – namely, one of the “Gromies!”
  2. After having read up & been down with the Manifesto, The Grove Way, and checking out the first edition of Swag*inista Radio, shoot us an email – stormygrove a-t gmail.com. Replace the “a-t” with an actual “@” symbol when you do, of course. That’s what we in the business call “trying not to get our inbox inundated with spam”.
  3. Be personally fast-tracked by a member of the Royal Court. Y’all that fall under this category enter immediately, but are still obligated to, soon after, read the Manifesto & The Grove Way, and check out the first edition of S*R.

    Welcome to the the Nation of Squallbonde, also known as the Stormy Grove Nation or simply “Grove Nation”. :100:

    Welcome to the website Hub of our Oasis; our Nation; our Family. What you’re looking at is a portal for our Citizens and Friends to provide easy access to information and resources for daily life, and beyond. While other “squads” are on the high-school mess of arbitrary uplift & inclusion, with many of the innocent & in-need being excluded, we’re Above that. If you’re on the real, you are welcome! 🙂

    The fundamental of this Universe and Beyond, that it all boils down to, is Harmony versus Divergence. Good versus evil. What’s right versus what’s wrong. Following and bathing in the Light of Nature, versus straying from Such.

    In a world that’s been overrun by Divergence, I was slowly awoken over years of youthful suffering to the Truth, and founded the Nation of Squallbonde as a result. An Oasis of Harmony in a barren wasteland of Divergence.
