Yes. Grand Duke. The only title that's even more pompous than "King."

Grand Duchy of Finland was hardly pompous. Poor guy probably never knew dafuq was going on :p

Well, considering that the Grand Duke of Finland was the Czar of Russia, I'd hope he did.

A civil war rp with magic would be interesting.

But the trick is that such an rp shouldn't be set in America (though it can). I personally feel exploring a different country, like Iraq (where civil war is very realistic) would be cooler.

If you want a good rp, read this shit.
Tiami is cool.
Nat: Night's always in some bizarre state somewhere between "intoxicated enough to kill a hair metal lead singer" and "annoying Mormon missionary sober".

Swith: It's because you're so awesome. God himself refreshes the screen before he types just to see if Nightkill has written anything while he was off somewhere else.

We did have a senate, which was pretty cool... if you forgot that it answered to the Grand Duke, at least.

Good times, good times. At least the Russians were more benevolent overlords than the damn Swedes.

What about one based on the years of Tsar Ivan in Russia, or the Communist Revolution in Russia?

Could work well indeed.

I was just thinking countries like Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan because I was doing some research on the FATA and realised again just how fucked my neighbour is.

Not entirely, but someone took the time to create an incredibly detailed mod importing the terrain and villages for it.

Ah, cool.

I wish that area had more Western attention. It's a true living hell, and a good example of why Partition was a bad idea in the end.

But then, most of Pakistan is heading toward greater hell.

Just saying, anywhere they found Bin Laden probably isn't a gleaming bastion of democracy and religious tolerance.

Which is too bad. I feel sad for them. They're brothers, in a way, even if we aren't friendly. There's a millennia of history between us.

*shrug*

Anyway, an rp in Pakistan would be interesting, but I doubt anyone here could do it very well.

I have serious doubts the one I'm making that's fairly straight forward will end in anything but failure, so can't help you there.

How about an RP set in Pakistan during the discovery of Bin Laden? We can play as either Pakiatan intelligence officer, Bin Laden's bodyguards....or US Navy Seal. Of course, I will limit the amount of Navy Seal to maybe 6 or 7
