History

Postby New North Islington » Fri Apr 09, 2010 8:19 am

History

New North Islington was founded in 1993 by the New North Islington Development Company with the intent of mining the asteroids that had collected in the Lagrange 5 point. The first colony ship landed in April 1994, bringing 1.3 million residents to the initial base construced in the Sea of Anticipation. The first city dome was erected in 1995 over the Sea of Anticipation, taking its name. The second city dome was errected only eight months later, followed by the fourth, fifth and sixth in December 1996. The second asteroid was settled in 1998 when the fourth colony ship arrived from Earth.

In November 1999, an explosion in Newport Dome #2 resulted in the death of 2.4 million people. Seperatist groups claimed responsibility and this caused a crackdown on extreme political groups. It also caused the founding of the first national park and the introduction of the first Dirigible Whale into the nations ecosystem. A small civil war followed, killing 8.1 million people.

Timeline/Tech Level

Postby New North Islington » Mon May 03, 2010 8:04 am

Timeline/Tech Level
New North Islington operates as a Post Modern Tech nation, however, the number of PMT nations is relatively low, and the level of PMT-ness (i.e. how far fetched the tech is) is low. As such, New North Islington CAN be used with MT nations. However, when interacting on a purely MT basis, it obeys a couple of rules:
  1. No, or limited use of spaceships. Spaceplanes may be used, however, their use as a method of getting into space should be downplayed.
  2. No lethal lasers. Non-lethal laser weapons exist, and the US Army own quite a few, they just make it feel like you are on fire (and do very well boiling water). This is the sort of lasers they have in MT RP's.
  3. The ISN Skyward Eyes is generally used as a relay to an undisclosed location and Jacob Flemming has executive command of New North Islington's assets on Earth. Also, Jacob Flemming becomes part of the New North Islington Navy Remote Presence Unit (INRP) rather than the New North Islington Solar Navy Earth Presence Unit (ISNEP).
  4. If anyone who can't know about New North Islington asks to go to New North Islington, they are told they can have a meeting set up with a diplomat of standing equal to their own, but that New North Islington has very tight borders. Jokes MAY be made about the borders being airtight.
