I'm planning for most of the characters to be nuns, though there can be a few other characters, and they are well-integrated into the community as both caregivers and authorities. There is, of course, one twist: nuns can produce miracles. It's not really magic in the sense that most RPs employ it, but more like gifts granted by God/saints/angels/whatever mixed in with a bit of Italian witchcraft, and is not used very frequently (simply because that would be an abuse of the miracles, and God would probably stop granting them). I'm also planning for there to be references to Italian folklore, though as of now I'm not completely sure how that element will play into the plot.

I happen to be Neapolitan.

Actually, I was hoping that you might be able to answer some of the questions that may come up about the setting that I can't find the answers to online (as I continue my research, that is; atm I can't think of any). Luckily, though, I'm able to decipher a lot the info found on Italian Wikipedia (thank god I speak French and the two languages are fairly similar, because the English Wikipedia has almost nothing).

True that. I admit that I've occasionally had trouble understanding a few Americans (though most I can understand fairly easily), and a couple of those times I wasn't even sure whether they were speaking English at all.

'Murican (as we call it down South) has some funny dialects. I live in North Carolina, and you can understand folks from every part of the state, except for the mountains. All my friends from the western part of the state pronounce their words much differently; for example, they pronounce "hush" as "hursh," and "right" as "rit." It can be a hassle when you're lost up there, and you have to ask for directions as some old country store.

Pretty much the same down here. North Georgia mountains are completely different accent-wise from the rest of the state. People from Atlanta also doesn't usually have the southern-type accent for some reason as well.

Saint Louis has our own "non-accent", although many have southern-type.

It's a similar situation in Canada; there are regional variants (which, really, is only to be expected considering the size of the country), but unless you've spent a lot of time living in different provinces and learning different variants (as I have) it's hard to tell the difference. Myself, I don't really speak any one variant, because (as I've said) I've moved around a lot, and my mother has too (both in her childhood and in her adult life), so she never taught me any one variant either. Interestingly, aboriginals are fairly easy to distinguish by their accents no matter the region, even though most of them speak English as their first language; but in general their accents aren't very noticeable unless you know what to listen for, so no one has any trouble understanding them.

The Newfies are a special case. No one can understand them.

In French, on the other hand, there's a bit more variation (most notably the differences between Québécois and Acadian, though I'm sure the other francophone groups across the country have distinct variations in their speech; I haven't heard enough of any of those variants to know), but that probably has to do with the fact that for most of their history, those groups have been isolated both from Europe and from each other, so their dialects have been developing independently for centuries. Honestly, I've heard some Canadian francophones whom I've been almost completely unable to understand aside from a few words here and there.



Anyway, we're drifting off topic.

I can understand them. Because I'm one of them. I've lived out west for most of my life though so I don't have the accent.

Same in TN. The East Tennesseans, the Middle Tennesseans, and the West Tennesseans all have different accents. Basically, as you move farther from the mountains and towards the Mississippi, the accents become slower and less twangy (or more twangy, I can never remember).

Also, I haven't really noticed much of a non-accent in Nashville. Its pretty much the same as in the surrounding areas.

Anywho. An idea I had a few minutes ago.

Basically, an alt-history RP where the Western Hemisphere (the Americas and Pacific Islands east of the International Date Line) of 2010 gets sort of temporally transferred to the world of 1940 (likewise, the Western Hemisphere of 1940 gets temporally transferred to the world of 2010). I'm thinking some sort of alien (who won't show up, but that's the OOC explanation) wormhole drive miscalculation.

So, we RP in the scenario with the hemisphere transported to 1940 (as opposed to the 1940 western hemisphere in 2010)?

Yes. The beauty of the whole thing is that the second arc could deal with the other world's timeline, and there could be a third arc where the two make contact.

A very original idea! It would be interesting to see the changes in society that would inevitably occur. I imagine that a lot of telecommunications would be cut off due to the sudden lack of satellites, and heavy militarisation might be necessary due to the military conflicts that would still be present in the Eastern Hemisphere (which would inevitably affect the West).

Well, I imagine 50% of the satellites would still be up.

Also, I'd imagine that the US would lock down the Western Hemisphere (including the internet and mobile devices) tighter than those cases they keep the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution in, so that no advanced information gets to the Nazis, Japanese, or the Soviets. This will probably produce some tensions between the uptime Western Hemisphere and the downtime Allies (basically just the British Empire, the various European governments in exile, and China, with the Soviet Union still working with Nazi Germany at this point). The WH would probably also majorly step up its manufacturing capabilities to outsource explosions to the Axis (and, given advanced jet technology, spy satellites, GPS, missile tech, computers, stealth, and nukes, they could probably obliterate any significant production capabilities the Axis could muster, as well as most large military formations.

Indeed, at least for the first part.

Though, I don't think downtime WH in uptime would be as completely screwed. After all, they'd probably be helped out by non-WH NATO members, and places like Japan, SK, Australia, New Zealand, etc. Russia and/or China would probably seize whatever opportunities it could, but with the US's manufacturing capabilities and the flood of new knowledge coming in along with their allies, they might be able to hold off and repel the attack.

Basically, an alt-history RP where the Western Hemisphere (the Americas and Pacific Islands east of the International Date Line) of 2010 gets sort of temporally transferred to the world of 1940 (likewise, the Western Hemisphere of 1940 gets temporally transferred to the world of 2010). I'm thinking some sort of alien (who won't show up, but that's the OOC explanation) wormhole drive miscalculation.

I'm down for this if I can be a super high speed low drag Delta Force operator wreaking havoc behind Nazi lines.


Just be a Navy SEAL with over 300 confirmed kills.

Same thing, really.
