Well, it all depends on whether the OP is willing to be a stubborn mule, and prevent their rp from dying.

The last two posts on the OOC of that thread is me stating that I'll get the RP up when that player get's their application posted and another player responding with excitement about getting the IC started.

Such is why I'd like to get another RP in that series rolling- it had a continuity stemming from the first RP in that setting, and the RP in question was to be a sequel.

The setting is... one where Earth has a 'Counter' in it's orbit- another planet on the opposite side of the sun. That planet being Sauria, inhabited by dinosaur like bipeds. Sauria, a planet united by an Empire, is undergoing a state of global cooling brought about by volcanic soot. It's set it's eyes on Earth for settlement.

The first RP, Of Civility and Ambition, revolved around two civilian factions; one seeking to conquer Earth and the other wanting to establish trade relations and migration treaties. The players unanimously elected to trade and migrate to Earth. The IC never reached a conclusion but those of us involved came up with what happened and thus came the 2nd RP.

The 2nd set in Australia on January the 1st of 2018; with first contact having occurred in the year 1996. That RP; Migrant's Story involved Saurians living on Earth with a few human characters; mostly those unhappy with the immigrants. Sauria was introduced to Democracy for the first time and the Empire is cracking down.

For this third RP I'd like to have the setting Sauria during the time the 2nd RP would have taken place in. With Human characters living on Sauria during this time of crisis.

Here on links to both OOCs if you'd like to take a greater look and I'll happily answer your questions. I know I'll love doing so.

RP1

RP2

I'll also take any suggestions regarding what to do for the next RP- either reboot the 2nd or go with the idea for the third or something I've not yet considered. It's a setting I know has great potential.

Shall we be seeing the return of Xhotol? the lizerdman who is definitely not trying to manipulate world politics.

Seeing how he's a character you've created I'd say it's likely. Before I can get anything going I need to know weather to start a third or relaunch the 2nd one. I'm presently rather interested in how Humans are doing on Sauria- like- I imagine they are having a harder time then the Saurians on Earth- like both are experiencing difficulty I'm sure- it's just something - a situation these Humans on Sauria that hasn't really been talked about or looked into yet. I've talked about the companies that have gone to Sauria and what material is contraband when traveling to Sauria and from it.

But we've not actually seen how Humans on Sauria are interacting with Suarians.

Nor in regards to relaunching the 2nd one (or just getting the IC up for the old OOC thread from January and pretending a pause hasn't taken place); have we really got to play the role of Saurians on Earth.

I feel that with most of my information being on Sauria rather then on Earth (as in I know more about Sauria then I about Earth in this setting) I can better manage NPCs; characters that players interact with on Sauria then I can manage Humans in Australia. Which is why I largely would have relied on players playing Humans when it came to getting an impression of Earth.

Like- Sauria is largely a - 'standardized' culture- like not as diverse as Earth due to being united for 5000+ years. We know that dialects just like in China exist but everyone is part of the same cultural group.

Earth on the other hand is more difficult. Disunited, culturally diverse, and still divided by race unlike Sauria where everyone is just 'Saurian' (with some exceptions like that group Xhotol's father was/is part of).

What I'm really asking for is direction, input, in what to do.

I would stay start a third it would be very interesting to see how Humans are attempting to live in the totalitarian regime of Sauria and how Saurians are adapting to new ideas brought in by Humanity especially Human religions (really hoping that someone who joins the RP decides to play as some kind of missionary from Earth.)

Alright :) Though I do re-iterate for you that Surians have vast social and economic liberties but no political rights. Still, what you say is true. It'd be like a Canadian Tourist in North Korea- except not a 'tour' as it's much longer. Yes, it'd be that level of difficult. I'm curious as to how Humans will react and Saurians to ideas from Earth, we've already got an idea of how the concept of Democracy has been impacting Sauria :/ so other ideas- gosh it'll be a hard time to live.

I'll see what I can do with getting the third up;

*looks at image of a Saurian City*
Image


Yeah... it does have that 'oppressive' air to it- it's going to be uncomfortable I'm guessing. I'd lament that Humanity couldn't have seen Sauria when it was warmer, when it's civilization was perhaps in the 3350s of the Saurian Calendar (Earth would have been in the *does math* in the 29th century BC back then... so yeah unlikely. Saurians where getting telecommunication satellites into orbit back then with their space race revolving around competition between telecom companies with in the Empire; Media was regulated by not directed by the state back then but the Empire got more control in the decades that followed)

Edit: I think I'll choose a more sub-urban or rural township setting like the town the first RP's IC was in. Even with - dying plants.... and cloudy days... wow Sauria is depressing! I remember feeling the air in the first RP and wanting to get away- that's why so many Saurians want to move to Earth. The planet is literally dying from the cold brought on by the thick skies (the result of ancient volcanic activity which now settling down has also started to cool the ground it's self). An RP on Sauria can either demonstrate this dying of the planet but how much of it can be shown while still allowing the people to be 'inviting'? It's made even sadder that the people are finding detraction from their planet's state by getting wrapped up in political upheaval. Gosh I'm hit suddenly with just how bad things are on Sauria and how fragmenting will likely doom them further :(

Edit: Maybe I'm just over reacting, maybe it's not that bad- a few flash freezes- cold rain- snow- ... ok it'd bad.

I'd quite like to know what the Saurian government is planning to do as they must that their world is dying, they can't simply conquer Earth as it seems as if they are suffering at home, perhaps some deal with the Humans in which they will let the Saurians have some land that would usually be considered useless by Humans however would be perfectly habitable for Saurians although I don't think that any government would be truly willing to give up land to an authoritarian regime. Also how much time has passed since first contact had been made?

Saurian individuals are allowed to move to Earth and Humans to Sauria though no land has been set aside for a Saurian or Human government on either world. Humans are generally told that Sauria is a tropical planet cooling down to a 'temperate environment' while Saurians are generally told that Earth is a temperate world warming into a tropical one. But the truth in both cases is that Sauria is becoming a frozen wasteland and Earth a Desert unless the two worlds do something. Earth's plan is that of our world; green energy, resource conservation, etc. Saurians on the other hand had made plans to move underground hugging the warm central core of their planet. A plan that isn't going to save them as stars still die.

*sorry I'm just really hit by how bad the situation is.

Even if Sauria had taken over the Earth the planet's ecology would still decline into an arid one.

.... we need to rethink what's going on and find a solution for these two worlds or re imagine the situation to be less dire- at the time I made it so dire as to allow players to understand the desperation of those seeking to conquer Earth and escape. Maybe they both think the situation far worst then it actually is.

OH! OH! Yeah, we had an Ice Age on our planet but it warmed up. There has to be some hope in that- if the reason for the warming can be discovered.

Thanks, I'm gonna have to get thinking on ways to save both planets before the RP starts then(or just leave and go to Alpha centauri), and also how has space travel developed since first contact?

Likely very well- It's only been 23 years but in OTL those 23 have seen a rise in private space exploitation companies. With the Imperial Trade Company and some Saurian innovations Earth has likely seen investments in what the ITC would see as competitors. But it brings Humanity's diverse mind and alien (to the Surians) perspective on space flight. Humans have more 'imagination' then Saurians due to media on Earth not being as restrictive. They've had Star Trek, Rocky Jones, etc- shows inspiring them to reach for the stars. They even tried to make contact with Sauria but got no response (the USSR and USA both tried). It's still a mystery what happened to those probes and a mystery as to how (as established in background lore rather then public knowledge- as in Saurians don't know this) that Saurian's are descended from terrestrial dinosaurs meaning some third entity not yet encountered is responsible for transporting Earth life to Sauria.

But that's a bit off topic in regards to the question- space travel- NASA is still being highly funded and I imagine the EU to have actually gotten a united Space Program going; on Earth I imagine the debate between Private and State space programs is taking place but more heated. The UN has probably even got those space progams that in OTL are on the 'back burner' up and going- again Earth isn't my specialty in this setting- it's somewhat of a mystery to me.

I'm sure propulsion from Sauria has been the greatest boon to Earthling programs.

Would you be interested in a Star Wars RP that is not centered around force sensitives?

I was thinking of an RP in which small team of not-so-nice bounty hunters cooperate to find someone really elusive or dangerous. It could be set during the 30-year cold war period after the fall of the Empire, in which case their employer could be the First Order and the target a resistance figure. Or it could be set during the ancient old republic era in which case the target could be a Jedi or a Sith.

The RP could be somewhat liberal in terms of canon and consistency (you can use a lightsaber you've salvaged, for example) but the story and the motives should be based around SW characters, locations and factions.

Wow, that was fast. Compliment someones work and instantly you're their friend.
And now for actual review: I think this would be interesting, but at the same time see it unlikely that the Japanese wouldn't surrender. Likely the risk of the whole world against them at that point would cause them to surrender, and if they still didn't surrender then I think they would be utterly destroyed quite uneventfully with, again, the entire world against them.

So I've been thinking of making an alternate history nation RP set in an 1800s-ish era (scramble for Africa, imperialism, canals, industrialisation) in a world with NO American continents. Just handwave the climatic effects and focus on historical ones, like no influx of resources to Europe from the Americas in the 16th century, increased colonial focus on Asia, and no transatlantic exchange on stuff like tobacco, tomatoes and potatoes. The world would be less of Europe steamrolling everything and more of Huntington's clash of civilizations with Europe clawing its way to the top.

Sort of general concept map, after I got bored and drew in one paint.net, of what world geopolitics on a civilizational level might look like, along with some general regions to discuss carving up the world in in. The cream-white-yellow regions in Africa and the Pacific are not developed and are going to get steamrolled by everyone else, mostly Europeans, and I expect to see South Asia and the East Indies (although there's no West Indies) being rich areas squabbled over by the major powers (again mostly Europeans, but with the Muslims and East Asians having a fighting chance in places like India and Southeast Asia)

Kalahari, The Cape, Australasia, Siberia and arguably the Maghreb could potentially be good areas for European settlement with manageable native population densities and a decent climate, so no need to forget about settler colonies either, even if there's no Americas. Maybe a USA analogue in Cape Town or Canberra instead of DC could be to somebody's fancy?

Anyways, is anyone interested in an RP that's basically Victoria 2 without the Americas?

RP INTEREST AND FEEDBACK REQUEST
Please provide as much detail as possible.
RP's Overarching Concept: You are a member of an organized crime group in the United States. The year is 2020 and it is time for elections.
Genre/s: Crime, Murder
Character or Faction Based: Character
Detailed Description:
In the year 2020 people are praising the lords of time for finally bringing an end to the horrifying regime of McDoland Grump. With this and with the "success" of the regime, there has been tons of corruption in the government. Most of the frontrunners for the role of president are extremist leftists that claim they can fix everything and basically Hilter V.2.

With such, your overlord has decided it's time for some change. Your group has been getting more and more popular over the years, and your overlord has taken some concern. So has the general public. All of the politicians at the top are now against your group and are campaigning with that as their front runner. The overlord has decided you have to do something about this.

The soldiers are assigned to specific people to influence. These are people that may be able to endorse the overlord. You also must do this inconspicuously. They must influence them in any way possible. Influence them towards what? Towards voting for the leader of the crime group of course! You may work with other people on one person, they might ask for your help on their assignment though. You're basically the reverse sales team of a crime group, trying to get people to sponsor you so you can have profit and safety forever while giving them nothing but lies and terrible propaganda.

Your overlord has decided to run for president. He has never been figured out and has minimal amount of connections to the group. The most connection anyone can find is whenever he was younger he said something along the lines of "organized crime is cool." to someone in his high school. The RP ends whenever either the whole crime group is busted and the overlord is figured out, or all of the targets are dealt with.

Need Help With: World building mostly. Development of the crime group. What type of crimes do they commit? I'd prefer them not to be druglords. Still a bit iffy on the whole overlord running for president part.

The Indian National Army was made up of captured Indian soldiers from the British army who held anti colonialist beliefs so in exchange for supporting Japan against the Allies India would become independent.
