I think I only really noticed it recently because I saw one of those same "MT-PMT nation that exists to spew numbers onto the page and go 'haha, i desert stormed ur poor-ass shithole nation, look at how smart i am i read tom clancy once'" people call a rather well-written bit of FT material wank just because it happened to be described as not being bad at its role, and it just sort of irked me the wrong way.

As a fully MT nation I would honestly say MT and PMT are the worst tech levels for wank on NS right now. But II is completely overrun with horrendous one liner war RPs as a whole anyway, the fact that it's all MT and PMT nations who read Tom Clancy for the first time a week ago or play too many arcade shooters doing it is merely a coincidence.

Reverberating Days wrote: Join me in creating militaries that are weaker than their neighbours' and have to use guerilla tactics.


These above goes with a lot of things, but I'd say that MT is simply the tech level most prone to powerwank. And no I'm not talking about the obvious "We sent 1,000,000 soldiers on your shores to conduct an amphibious invasion" on some irrelevant international affair no one cares, but they're included. MT low-key powerwankers are known for their incessant ignorance of logistics no matter what, industrial base, Godmodding diplomatic relations like "this nation allowed me to land my troops there, airbases and missile silos for no good reason and now they've joined my alliance for no good reason", difficulty of amphibious invasions and ignoring guerilla warfare.

I'd say that's probably because FT and PMT as purely imaginary domains are unexplored and can be host to creative writing, but since MT already happened IRL you have to play by a modicum of RL knowledge to play realistically, which simply needs time and effort that most people either can't afford, are simply disinterested or simply willfully ignorant to partake in. The same goes for PT, but PT is moreso obscure that you're not going to partake in (especially in earlier timescales) unless that is simply your genuine interest.

Another cliche I've noticed among MT nations, especially among the neoliberal nations of Grail, SETA, LITA and others is the stubborn compliance to First World NATO and US military models without effort or explanation as to why their nations suddenly had amassed an industrial base or economy that allows them to, or why do their nations even need it in the first place.
It's always "ooh I have Gerald Ford supercarrier!" "ooh I have F-35 Lightning stealth aircraft! "ooh I have nuclear SSBN!" "ooh I have stealth destroyer!" "ooh I have powerful exoskeleton suit!" without deconstruction as to how their nation has suddenly amassed weapons that only Russia, China and US has IRL even if "they are trying to play as a realistic MT nation". Bonus points if they're playing as a First World liberal democracy that's not really going to be threatened by anyone and suddenly feels the need to amass a powerful military and nuclear program.

I consider these as low-key MT versions of having "interstellar space ships that spew lasers" considering that I've seen very few MT nations that diverge from these cliche models such as one based on asymmetric warfare, guerilla warfare and other unconventional forms of modern warfare. Realistically, if your nation focuses too much on the military and if you're not US, China or Russia, you'd inadvertently sacrifice other areas or you lack resources so you are forced to play asymmetrically - an interesting angle I simply don't see among NS nations. There are very few nations here that go the narrowly traveled path when in fact MT military need not be uncreative - such as Viet Cong's guerilla tactics, Albania's bunkers, Iran's Mad Max navy tactics, midget submarines, human torpedoes, Somalian pirates, Afghan Mujahideens and DPRK's general shenanigans -that MT military building in NS as it for now seems to be overall monotonous and dull.

See this nation canonically only has like 30,000 people in its military because, you know, not gonna exactly have a huge military with less than 6 million people in my population. I admit that maybe it's a bit small (I think Denmark IRL has like 40,000 active troops and they have around the same population that this nation officially has) but I also don't do war RPs at all, so who really cares?

Tbf I don't find it unreasonable for lots of NS nation to have military resources similar to IRL superpowers, at least as long as you can roleplay it properly (and most GRAIL/SETA/LITA types don't). One of the core premises of NSMT is that it takes place on a weird fractal world with ridiculous amounts of land, which would enable many more nations on the scale of the contemporary US. The sorts of nations that tend to be widely accepted as global superpowers in MT Prime (e.g. Macabees, Lyras, MT Allanea) all have economies that put the entirety of modern Earth to shame - something US or China sized would be a rather small player relatively speaking. The much greater number of hot peer conflicts that occur in MT prime would also presumably lead to much greater military spending on average.
I consider these as low-key MT versions of having "interstellar space ships that spew lasers" considering that I've seen very few MT nations that diverge from these cliche models such as one based on asymmetric warfare, guerilla warfare and other unconventional forms of modern warfare.

On that note, the lack of proxy wars in MT is really disappointing. Trying to covertly equip guerillas, supporting with strategic SF ops/drone strikes/intelligence, dealing with conflicts of interest and idelogical difficulties etc could be much more interesting than the standard "we send 10,000 tanks to put down ur rebellion" but it's basically nonexistent in MT.

Join dates for nations in those threads are almost all post-COVID lockdown. It's probably mostly due to middle schoolers getting more internet time because of COVID.

The generic NS nation is 100% an MT liberal democracy with a huge military full of advanced hardware that hasn't fully entered service yet IRL. I'm just here trying to play a regional middle eastern power along the lines of something like Turkey IRL. But having a military with 400 thousand active personnel is just asking to get powerwanked by a huge military no matter how much I try to wage an asymmetric conflict or wreak havoc behind the lines with my fairly substantial special operations forces, or no matter how modern my equipment is since I'm basically using what was top of the line for NATO in the early 2010s which is far from outdated or useless today. Probably why I haven't done a war RP ever with this nation.

For a quick tip like I said: Try to have a few rules with your RPs. Open wars/international incidents are usually asking for trouble unfortunately, and you will need a list of rules and engagement for nations that participated, e.g. no WMDs or nukes, or absurd numbers.

It sounds easier said than done and I do feel bad that it sounds like I am a fun police, but man, you gotta have those if you don't want a hole in your leader's house over a dinner party.

I made a RP that didn't really had rules, and didn't really went bad. Granted, not many people where there.

We are a FT space federation, that uses the vastness of space, and our advanced technology, to create a post-scarcity economy, with robots and dinosaurs.

While not a cliche, a trope/trend that I see is to have "10+ posts per day" when you first put up the OP..... then eventually it got so dead that not even I / OP can revive it. I had to lock them and put them out of their misery lest someone gravedigged it. :blush:

This unfortunately is inevitable and yeah, I do play a part in being inactive too, but understandably, a lot of us just have things outside of the RP.

And yes, Honor System will screw you over, so... house IC/OOC rules will be good.

Something I have personally seen many times over the years is someone nearly kill(or, on rare occasions, successfully kill)an active thread by typing out a 5-6 paragraph response. Generally done in “YN/YL opinion on AN’s/AL’s thing”. Nobody tends to respond to those because any response you do type may seem underwhelming compared to AN’s response. I’m not complaining about a paragraph or two written about a nation. Those are fine and should be the average response. But when someone types out a whole essay on a thread, I feel as if most users do not want to respond to it or even read it. It’s kind of overkill

Honestly, though, sometimes reading and writing those sorta replies can be fun, especially when it gets into character, and if its one of those threads where you're rating something or other, those can be the most helpful responses. And I definitely prefer those sorta responses to the typical "She is a mermaid, so She is cool" and "It is a theocracy, so it is bad" ones. :p

I don't go on the other forums so I only have experience with the Region I'm RPing in. What I do see is nations that seem to think that they can't RP if they don't cause tension every once in a while. Like they can't continue making RPs unless they start a conflict or a dispute every once in a while.

The big bang and its consequences have been a disaster for all of existence.

We are a FT space federation, that uses the vastness of space, and our advanced technology, to create a post-scarcity economy, with robots and dinosaurs.

NS-stats are not used.
