The Senate Chamber: Make the Senate Great Again

Postby NSG Senate Administrators » Sat Feb 18, 2017 9:55 am

The NSG Senate
The Worst State of a Republic
Join Us


An Introduction

Welcome to the NSG Senate. This is democracy at its worst.

In brief, we are a character-driven and dynamic government simulation roleplay where you will be a politician in the fictional nation of Fernão, where your actions and the actions of your fellow senators will shape the present and the future of the country, for the better or the worse. Will you choose to be a good and trustworthy representative or will you rise to power through backhanded maneuvers and shady deals? Will you be a crossbencher? A minister? Even a general?

Founded by Denecaep and maintained by chief admin (OP) Zurkerx and co-admins (co-OPs) Beta Test, Maklohi Vai, Merizoc and Collatis, our roleplay has existed in several iterations for over three years, and we are the non-NS political RP.


Where do I get started?

First off, there's the Senate Lobby which is our OOC thread, where we discuss about everything related to the roleplay, and sometimes even things that aren't. When needed, it also doubles as a thread where we can roleplay character interactions and other events that are RPed to occur in the legislative building's lobby. Then, there's the Coffee Shop where we propose bills for peer scrutiny and have lively debates on them. The third and arguably most important thread is the Senate Chamber, where we debate bills right before they come to a vote, and cast our ballots to decide whether a bill passes or fails. We also have a thread for applications to join the senate, where you let us know which party you want to join and register a new party should you choose to create one. And last but not least Daily Life in Fernão, where roleplay that does not happen in the legislative building goes, whether it be a bus ride, a television broadcast or a neo-fascist terrorist attack.

Senator Alexios Viel walks in, setting his briefcase down at his seat and making sure all of his documents are in order. He smiles at the others, and gets a glass of water; he knows he'll need it for the sessions to come.
