Hello! I'm new to TWI but not new to NS. Used to very active years ago and am taking another go at it. The Trultin Isles are supposed to be a small, leftist confederation of several islands that banded together at some point in their history to provide for a common defence and unified trade policy. They were, at one point, subordinate to a monarchy which was deposed at the turn of the 19th-20th century at which point it became a confederation/federation of various islands. Presently they are a small, environmentally conscious nation that relies primarily on fishing and tourism as their main industry. I'm still developing the exact details of the government.

RP-wise I am looking for trade disputes (especially over fishing rights), possibly spats over law enforcement and jurisdiction, friendly relations, and promotion of peace, welfare, and the brotherhood of all mankind.

Welcome! Sounds interesting. If you haven't picked a spot on the map, the northern sections of the Southern Sea could be a good fit.

Hi, I've just joined TWI about five minutes ago at most but I didn't join NS at the same time. I used to have an active country West Saltar but I had to discontinue it for multiple reasons, but I'm back with good old Fahrdonnar. In essence the Community of Fahrdonnar is a young nation forged from the fires of rebellion after the Overseer viewed the democracy that was the precursor to Fahrdonnar a tyranny, but the more detailed history is in my factbook.

As for RP, I don't really have a specific idea of what I want to get into, I just sort of want to do if you get my meaning. But anyway, That's my introduction

I was eyeballing that spot or perhaps a spot in the Lotus Sea, since I'm writing up the Trultin Isles as a tropical/sub-tropical nation.

Hello there!
I have been playing NationStates for a couple of months now, and I have moved here to look for a new challenge.
I don't really have much to say, so I hope it was a good choice to come here.

Hello all, returning NS player coming your way. I've had some experiences with RPs, most notably Project Warfighter, as well as two years of ingame experience. I 'm looking forward to contributing and becoming and active member of the Western Isles community, as well as expanding and refining my skills as a roleplayer. See you guys around!

Hello there!So I've been on NS a few months before but I left out of boredom, but now I'm giving it a another try, and hopefully enjoy it. Also a small note: I am not a big fan of reading long things like the official stuff and guides I should read, so I might be confused on a lot of things. I like to have someone just say what I need to do to me as I go along or be straight to the point. Just a heads up.

Anyway, for my nation, I want it to be a trade center in at least it's general area. Kind of like the dutch, swiss, and venetians. The land it stands on sucks but got rich through trade. I hope for some rival over trade power and maybe a trade league if people are willing, but it's kind of on the back of my mind. I hope I can make this place a bit more interesting. :)

Felicitations, fellow roleplayers! ^_^

How did you hear about The Western Isles?

I found TWI through the "Role Player" tag.

What's some information about yourself (hobbies, interests, country, etc.)?

My hobbies include roleplaying, vexillology, and meditation. I have a keen eye for politics in my ancestral lands of Portugal. I observe Eastern Standard Time (EST).

What kind of nation are you trying to make?

My nation will be centered around a system of nonpartisanism, direct democracy, and neomercantilism. The legislature will serve as a big tent of sorts.

Salutations! I am rather new to the The Western Isles and its role-play, but I am an experienced NS player. I am really looking forward to doing some role-play in the future! I do hope I can join a few alliances in the region, and perhaps cause a few wars(?).
Dasko is a capitalistic nation, with several regulations (like the EU); the nation advocates for fair trade and is economically prosperous. A left-wing government currently holds control inside Parliament, it also holds the Presidency; it is stable. Military-wise, the government spends most of its money on the navy and air force, along with research. The military force is moderate. Foreign policy-wise, the nation scorns dictatorships, nations that don't respect civil rights, and rogue states; the government will intervene if allies are willing to do so.

Not a new player - RP IDEA

On the advise of Vancouvia, I'm posting this RP plan on both here and the rmb.

I'm going to be setting up a factbook and thread for a new RP which shall be designed to get the region mobilised. It is another NPC RP, but one that doesn't end in the dominion of one nation, quite the opposite in fact.

After gaining inspiration from research on the Iraq War and the Cold War, I am interested in creating an RP that ends in the partitioning of territories after a preliminary invasion, (Iraq/Post-War Germany). The NPC nation will be a much larger nation than usual for bold territories so that partitions can make some affect. This is also to allow a larger 'sandbox' experience as there is a wider playing field.

Van and I discussed the possibilities of this nation and came to an understanding that it would be a very Iraq-esque situation, with the NPC having its economy mostly based on primary industries with its natural resources and it would be lead by an aggressive government. The government will become aggressive with the League or conduct humanitarian crimes which will then lead to an international response.

Instead of a unified response, I hope that there can be several sides, mostly from those in alliances. For example, we can run a situation similar to Post-War Germany with the EUSR taking one section, the MSTO taking another, the CFN taking another, the C6 taking another, etc. This means that this RP will remain relevant for (hopefully) a long time as it will allow for tensions to be raised over border disputes in the territory. This may lead to a wider war, I don't know, I'm just interested in setting something like this up.

Now, as you can tell, this is very bare-bones at the moment as all I'm trying to do is gain support and interest. If you have any ideas on the matter, feel free to reply to this or telegram.

(P.S: the NPC will hopefully be situated in the space under Segentova)

Hey everybody, new nation here; new to The Western Isles but not to NS or RP! The Confederacy of Atriano is an extremely laissez-faire nation focused on political and economic liberty. I'm looking forward to RP, and I'd especially appreciate it if there was somebody that would be willing to butt heads with Atriano and become a rival nation (preferably some degree of authoritarian, something that is a polar opposite of Atriano's political outlook).

If you really want to, you can rival anyone regardless of characteristics. Sometimes rivals are very similar kind of nations that compete for the same things

Postby Tuna Union » Thu Oct 12, 2017 7:48 am

Hello all, New to TWI, and still somewhat new to RPing on NS, but hey, I exist at least.

Despite the moderately ridiculous name, Tuna Union is a Theocratic religious powerhouse Nation in modern times, built on a legacy of conquest with it's own unique pantheon of Gods and a firm belief in defense and spirituality above all else. Despite technically being a Dictatorship, the leader has genuine cares for the people, partially due to the fear that treating them poorly would anger their chief God. I'm looking to take a different spin on this kind of nation, opting for a passive approach as opposed to aggression, while carrying enough weaponry to deter any outside threats and maintain the security of the nation's borders. While that's my intent, I'm a fairly flexible roleplayer, and can adapt my gameplan to fit something similar if need be.

Seeing as I'm just starting in TWI, I'm looking for any real kinds of interaction. Allies, Rivals, someone to gossip with over tea, you name it, and I'd be game to try my hand.

Well, we're obviously going to be rivals, since my people are kind of well-known of being against theocracies. One of my neighbors (San Jimenez) had his church be very influential in his nation, and I actually protested when a large TWI alliance (the CU) gave him membership. So if you're looking for rivalries - I can fill that spot.

Hate to barge in on the conversation but my nation is also very anti-theocracy(or at least I intend for it to be) so if something involving all three of us interests either of you we could discuss it!

Namaste! I am new to the Western Isles, but not new to the Nation States, my last nation in the game was called Himana and it was one of my most favorite projects. I have family and friends who play this game and they have been showing me some pointers which I hope have made my factbooks and appearance look good! I am hoping to start out as a small and insignificant nation, but am hoping to gain gory (or notoriety/notoriousness) through possible war through escalated sea tension or unmeetable ultimatums!
