Just a bit of a random idea that I decided to expand upon.

Nothing concrete on this just yet.

THE IRON CURTAIN
What if the Soviet Union won the Cold War?
"Gaiety is the most outstanding feature of the Soviet Union."
Joseph Stalin

    In the early winter of September, 1939, the German Wehrmacht marched on Poland, marking the beginning of the greatest conflict in human history. Before the month was over, the curse of general European war was renewed once more, and the former Entente powers found themselves at the mercy of the German onslaught. All around the planet, the iron claws of war had dug deep, from the forests of Finland to the coast of China. By June of the following year, German troops were in Paris, and it appeared all Europe would fall to the ambitions of the German Reich's Military Dictator, Anton Drexler. It was then, with the United Kingdom in the crosshairs, that Drexler's forces launched a surprise attack into the territory of the Soviet Union.

    The Soviet Union, the homeland of the worker's revolution, found itself facing a threat unseen since the Great War. The forces of the Red Army were pushed back again and again. Victory was inevitable in the eyes of the German Reich. Communism would be destroyed in the very place where it had taken root.

    Then, German troops marched on Stalingrad.
    Image

    The Red Army, bolstered by conscripts from as far as Siberia, made one final stand against German imperialism. Their battle would mark the first turning point in the conflict, ending with an entire German army surrounded and starved out until surrender. All throughout the Motherland, the Red Army would rise to the occasion, leading the Great Patriotic War to retake their homeland.

    In the European theater, the United Kingdom was at the brink of collapse. The United States, under the presidency of Alf Landon, chose the path of neutrality. Landon invoked the words of John Quincy Adams, stating that "America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy." The reality of American neutrality was far less high-minded, however. The country's economy was still in shambles after the Great Depression, and would remain in a state of economic disparity throughout the war. Without American aid, the British Isles found themselves facing the Germans alone.

    By 1946, the German army had begun a tactical retreat from Soviet territory. Seeing their opportunity, the Red Army pursued. By the end of the year, Germany's allies in Italy had succumbed to French and English counterattacks, while Japan faced a Soviet invasion of Manchuria. Seeing the writing on the wall, Drexler fled Germany for South America, leaving his second-in-command, Adolf Hitler, to die for the Reich. Hitler would commit suicide four months later when Soviet forces stormed the Reichstag and seized Berlin. By 1948, Soviet troops had pushed the Japanese from Korea, only relenting with the unconditional surrender of Japan in August of the same year.

    With the end of the war came the rise of the Warsaw Pact, an alliance of Communist nations created after the Soviet "liberation" of Germany. Most were merely puppet states of the Stalin regime. Germany and Italy were balkanized into several lesser Soviet puppets, while Japan was forced to cede their colonial holdings to similar Soviet-controlled countries. France and the United Kingdom, devastated by the conflict, could do little but watch as the Russian government partitioned the world like a child would to a cake. The final straw came with the liberation of Holland, which saw war between the French and Soviets. Predictably, Pétain's nationalized France stood little chance against a battle-hardened Red Army. France would be split in a manner not unlike the former Axis powers, with the United Kingdom forced into isolation by the threat of Soviet blockade.

    In the ensuing years, the new Soviet hegemony would begin to exert its influence on the world. With the workers of France liberated, the regime turned its attention to former French colonies. Much of the former French government had retreated to West Africa, establishing their own state with the intention of eventually liberating their homeland. To counter this, the Central African Union was established to keep French nationalists in check. At the same time, the former British colony in Egypt seized its own independence and promptly conquered Libya, forming Greater Egypt.
    Image

    Elsewhere, the Chinese Civil War would conclude with the victory of Mao Zedong and the Chinese Communist Party. Ho Chi Minh would come to command the Indochinese Socialist Union after the region faced it's own civil war. Kim il Sung would lead the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to eventually invade and annex the Japanese home islands.

    This would eventually culminate in the invasion of Canada by Soviet forces in 1956. Despite having begun its own economic renewal from the Great Depression, Canada was woefully unprepared. Facing total collapse, Canada would capitulate to the Soviets, becoming the first casualty of the Russo-American War. Predictably, despite having recovered from their economic woes, the United States lacked the military apparatus to counter a full-scale Soviet invasion. President Eisenhower would eventually agree to the conditional surrender of the United States of America in 1959, following two years of gruesome guerilla warfare in the Soviet occupied States. Though the United States would continue to exist, it would remain a shadow of its former self. The United Socialist States of America was established in the East under Prime Minister James P. Cannon. Additionally, the United States would cede considerable territories to Central America, a socialist union between Mexico and other states, and Cuba.

    Now is the year of our lord, 1975, and the Communist revolution still stands astride the planet. However, all is not well in the worker's paradise. Underground rebellions continue in the United States, and tensions remain high all along the American Demilitarized Zone. The Warsaw Pact has long split apart, ending the alliance between the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union. The Asian Economic and Defense Union stands in opposition to the Soviets, sparking worries that the two alliances may break out into global thermonuclear war any day. Humanity, it seems, is poised once more for a third, perhaps even more terrible, world war.

The Colony

[PLACEHOLDER BANNER]

>>IC<<
Theme
The Pub
OP: Anowa
Co-OP(s):



ark (ärk)
noun
singular proper noun: ark; noun: the ark
A vessel or sanctuary that serves as protection against extinction.
ex: "a starship ark built by their android protectors"


It has been 177 years since the establishment of humanity's first extraterrestrial colony. In that time they've discovered how to make fully functional and realistic prosthetics, artificial intelligence, medical advances that can extend one's natural life past 140 years, and most important of all, commercial sized fusion reactors. With a power source to field car sized fusion reactors, humanity all but exploded past the golden zone. Terraforming on the large scale became possible, asteroid mining became the norm, and colonies were set up outside the asteroid belt, on the Gallilean moons, Titan, and with a space station orbiting Neptune. Yet now humanity takes it's first steps past the Oort cloud.

With construction starting in 2203, the first colonial ark, The UTS Blissful Horizon, was finished and commissioned in 2210, with recruitment for humanity's first extra-solar expedition running from 2211 to 2215. The Blissful Horizon is the culmination of human achievement, equipped with an Alcubierre drive, ion thrusters, fusion based retrothrusters, a hydroponics deck, manufacturing deck, and cryogenics complement holding over 9000 colonists. The ark is designed to be stripped into a colony on their new world, splitting into two while in orbit, and landing in succession to one another to form two separate structures on the planet.

You will play a member of the ark's establishment crew, numbering less than 30 people you will be tasked with getting the basic necessities up and running; you are all that stand between success and the ultimate death of over 9000 people. You will play as a botanist, engineer, security officer, geologist, or any number of background, all working together in the vital mission of setting up a colony on Proxima Centauri b. An inability to problem solve or work together will result in the death of the colony, and the loss of human kind's future among the stars. Welcome to the Ark Program.



1. OP is veritable God, Co-OPs are veritable Archangels.
2. No Godmodding, Metagaming, or 'dickish' OOC behavior.
3. Keep it roughly PG-13.
4. No directly controlling another player character unless given permission to do so. As stated above you may freely control any and all NPC’s that are not central to any major plotline.
5. Posts must be a paragraph minimum. One-liners are unacceptable.
6. You character cannot be overpowered. You can die and every challenge should be just that, a challenge. Any overpowered characters will bring forth the wrath of the OP in the form of even worse obstacles and outcomes.
7. Be active should you apply. No need to be online 24/7 (as I certainly will not be) but don’t go through the effort of joining and never post anything. If you will be gone for any significant amount of time please leave a message stating that you will be gone. Those who do not risk having their characters killed off.
8. Have fun.

  • 2089 - Martian Colonists build a drone retrieval depot, for the purpose of 'fishing' asteroids from the belt, bring them into Martian orbit, and strip mining them there. It is met with apprehension.
  • 2092 - Olympus' population breaks 1,000 people. Efforts to create an artificial magnetosphere on the red planet begin.
  • 2097 - The Singapore Space Elevator completes construction, the artificial Island it is created upon become international territory and becomes strictly regulated by the UNOA.
  • 2100 - Titan station is founded. It's mission is to aid in deep space exploration missions, and to harvest the moon's natural resources to aid in the full colonization of Mars.
  • 2106 - In an effort to generate a greater atmospheric density, as well as to create a viable construction site for a magnetic pylon, 246 thermonuclear warheads and 3 asteroids containing a majority of frozen ammonia detonate in the Martian North Pole over a period of eight months.
  • 2107 - Seeing positive effects of the previous attempt, the same event is simulated and attempted on the Martian South Pole over a similar time frame.
  • 2117 - A large year for Martian development. The first three magnetic pylons are developed on the Martian equator, as efforts to melt polar ice continues. Meanwhile Europan efforts to provide water are halted temporarily as efforts to continue forming a magnetosphere forge ahead. Mars also receives a seat in the UNOA.
  • 2123 - An industrial accident on Titan results in a hydrocarbon lake immolating and destroying roughly $8 trillion in crafted materials.
  • 2128 - The final three magnetic pylons are finished on the Martian equator, the North Pole Pylon completes three months later, and eight months after, the South Pole Pylon too finishes.
  • 2134 - After eight years of tests and deliberation, the Martian pylons come online. After six months, a notable change in the martian magnetosphere becomes apparent. Efforts to increase the atmospheric density of the planet continue.
  • 2139 - The first lab grown human is born, with no birth defects, and from fully lab coded genetics. There is not a single person alive genetically related to the child. Named "Eve" she is adopted by the program's head geneticist Igor Rostislavovna.
  • 2142 - Almost exactly one hundred years after it's settlement, Mars' atmosphere no longer requires pressure suits to traverse. Plants are shipped en masse from Earth to Mars, in an effort to finally make the red planet green.
  • 2153 - Two more colonial stations are set up on Mars: Shepard, and Gagarin. As of their establishment, Mars receives official passports, and Martian becomes a nationality.
  • 2154 - Following the example of Mars, Lunar, Titanian, and Europan too become nationalities. At this point the population of Luna breaches 13,000, Mars breaches 26,000, Titan Breaches 1,300, and Europa breaches 3,600.
  • 2157 - Mars holds it's first election after the cities of New Alexandria and Armstrong are founded. A flag is selected to represent
  • 2161 - In an expected turn of events, extremists bomb the Singaporean Space Elevator. Due to it's structural reinforcements and support redundancies, no real physical damage is inflicted. However 86 people of varying nationalities are killed. The UNOA quickly comes to the realization that they are not equipped for interplanetary warfare, and begin drafting plans to do so, as UNOA Officers apprehend any suspected extremists.
  • 2162 - Mars' atmosphere becomes minimally breathable. Walking on the surface of Mars with neither pressure suit, nor oxygen mask is possible for roughly 18 minutes before early stages of hypoxia begin.
  • 2164 - In an effort to prevent further extremist views from cropping up. The Lunar government outlaws the open practice of religion.
  • 2166 - The Martian Insurrection begins. After one of the planet's magnetic pylons is targeted for destruction, local security forces proved themselves viable combatants by defending the pylon and disarming the explosives set around it's structure. After three similar attacks in the aim of destroying major population sustaining objects, the Martian government declares martial law, and requests UNOA aid. The UNOA notes that no help can be supplied, as they themselves are also vastly unprepared for such an eventuality. In November of that year, The Elysium proving grounds are established. The Martian Security Administration changes to the Martian Armed Forces.
  • 2169 - The UNOA publishes 'Physiological changes in Extra-Terran humanity'. Within outlines the changes in the human physique on Mars, Titan, Europa and Luna. With Europans on average being the tallest, followed by Titanians, Lunarians, and Martians. Martians also seem to be the most able to adapt to low oxygen areas like the Himalayas. While Titanians seem to be the most adaptable to low light conditions. Eurpoans seem to be the most adapted to sub-zero environments, and Lunarians have extraordinarily elastic soft tissues allowing for a vastly greater chance of survival on low or even negative pressure environments.
  • 2172 - Eve Rostislavovna, the first lab born human, gives birth to twins In Gagarin, Mars. Ulysses and Hapfthor.
  • 2176 - The first fully sentient and unrestrained AI, Iris, is created in the Elysium Proving Grounds on Mars. After three months of being online it is given a connection to orbital traffic monitors, all tax records, traffic records, and helmet cams to every soldier of the MAF. He begins effectively ending the Martian Insurrection slowly and methodically.
  • 2178 - The UNS Black Valour finishes it's construction at the Athena Shipyards. It is the first martially based starship created by mankind. Bolstering a number of fusion based engines, ion thrusters and a trio of Heavy Fusion Reactors, it can safely travel to Pluto and back before requiring a resupply. It is the most powerful object ever created by mankind, armed with a number of missile batteries, three belly based mass drivers, and a Heavy Coil gun mounted into the ship's superstructure, a single volley of projectiles could result in a combined energy output of 60 megatons of TNT. In April of it's first year, the Martian government resends it's request for UNOA assistance in attacking a Insurrectionist stronghold. The request is authorized, and the stronghold becomes the recipient to a single orbital strike, reducing it to nothing but a crater. A day later, the leader of the insurrectionist movement requests a parlay in order to negotiate a cease fire. The Martian Insurrection ends.
  • 2183 - Orbital photos of mars show vast changes since it's first settlement. Large patches of green can be discerned, while superhighways and settlements dot and crisscross the now greening surface. Martian air has reached a point in which permanent removal of oxygen masks is possible. Mars becomes a fully sustainable planet should the magnetic pylons remain active. In an effort to change this, the Martian government starts brainstorming plans to restart the core of the planet.
  • 2187 - A catastrophic failure of a fusion reactor on Europa converts three thousand tons of ice into steam, before a prompt electrolysis reduces it into oxygen and hydrogen. The resultant explosion causes the formation of the Bethe Crater, 727 meters deep, and over 2,300 meters in diameter. The shockwave resulted in ice fissures up to 600 kilometers away, and killed over 800 people. It remains the most notable reactor failure of this scale since the Chernobyl or Fukushima incidents.
  • 2191 - The Oort Deep Space Monitoring Station (ODSMS) is built and deployed on the outside of the Oort cloud. Staffed by the AI Sparrow Hawk, the mission is to monitor for any transmissions sourced from extra-solar destinations and forwarding them to the nearest human population.
  • Early 2195 - Afterboth Sparrow Hawk and a UNOA maintenance team lose contact with all human settlements, a recovery team is deployed, before subsequently being lost as well. Fearing the worst, Mars and the UNOA begin the fast track to continuing their orbital ship programs. The Black Valour is dispatched the the Oort cloud, and encouters hostiles. In the form of a rampant Sparrow Hawk and the weaponized civilian ships sent to check on the ODSMS. The Black Valour rpoves to be more than a match, dispatching the AI and the civilian ships in less than a day over Neptune.
  • Late 2195 - After news of the battle reaches the UNOA, they issue a ruling that all AI within the Sol system be indefinitely disabled or recoded to no longer remain sentient. All planets sans Mars comply. The UNOA maintains their pressure on Mars as the two try to negotiate.
  • 2197
    • March - Two years of negotiations and attempts to get Mars to disable their AI reaches a head, as Mars completes it's first starship: The MSV Void Runner. The UNS Black Valour moves into orbit over Olympus, as they issue an ultimatum to the Martian Gov't, disable all planetary AI within three days, or Olympus will receive an orbital bombardment. Extra-Terran nations all protest to such a use of force, as well as a number of Earth based nations. On the third of March, at 3:47 PM, Captain of the Void Runner Ahmed Berrada and the AI aboard, settle to fire upon the Black Valour. Three minutes later a 600ky Nuclear warhead was fired from the ship's coil gun, impacting the bridge of the Black Valour and disabling all it's sytems in a nuclear detonation. The ship would then fall from orbit and land forty kilometers north of Olympus Mons. The UN-Martian War begins.
    • April - Less than a month after the destruction of the Black Valour, the Void Runner enters Earth's orbit, before deploying 2,000 members of the MAF through SSTO capable drop ships. The UN building in New York is seized, and Mars forces negotiations upon the UNOA. AI's remain heavily regulated, and are only open for use in vital postings, but Mars remains the martial superpower in the system.
  • 2200 - Mars now has several biomes on it's surface. Ranging from boreal forest to red desert. Earth based life slowly begins to be introduced to the planet. Mars' population breaks 30 million. And the cities of Hawking and Curie are built near the equator and north pole respectively.
  • 2201 - The still realtively broken spirited UNOA attends a final parlay between themselves, the Extra-Terran Colonies, and Mars. They sign the Red-Blue Co-Existence treaty. Reforming the UNOA, Extra-Solar Colonies, and Mars into the United Terran Union. Mars remains the heart of Military authority and production, while Earth remains home to the softer side of things. The Extra-Solar Colonies remain small as ever, yet still growing and adapting, supplying both Mars and Earth with supplies to keep them alive.
  • 2202 - The Ark Program begins.
  • 2203 - The UTS Blissful Horizon begins it's construction at the Deimos Shipyards.
  • 2210 - The UTS Blissful Horizon finsihes construction, and is commissioned later that same year.

Went for a sort of Scarface-feel. Was originally going to try something similar to an old 50's movie poster, but I couldn't get the coloring to turn out right.

I'm in the mood for a political character RP and I'm thinking of establishing a P2TM party in NSG Senate. Anyone interested?

If you go open world you have to be ready to quickly present people with things to do and reactions to what they do, to keep them from getting bored if they don't find someone to interact with right away. You also have to keep track of time, or else some people will spend way too long waiting for others for time skips. Depends on the type of RP, too. Academy threads(I know, I know...) can very easily be open world without a ton of interaction from the OP. Action threads will die like that in the first few pages, however.

PSA: Mods are cracking down on Archive Threads. They'll be locked unless if they're deemed "crucial" to your RP.

Eh, I kind of agree. If there's not a ton of characters, I'm sure your second or third OP post could include a character list, which is just a little more work for the OP, and it doesn't end up cluttering the forums, since it keeps it all in one thread. Of course, you might need a separate thread if you have a ton of lore that needs to go somewhere where it won't clutter your OOC pages, like reserving like twenty posts initially just so you can jam some lore posts in there. Like, clutter should be avoided either way.

It seems rude to do that to currently-ongoing RPs. Maybe make sure this is known, and that any RP created after this ruling should adhere to this ruling, but currently on-going ones utilizing an Archive thread can continue using an Archive thread.

I'd probably get struck by lightning before I turned out an RP of my own.
