Great Nortan Railway Tour: OOC [Telegramme]

Postby Great Nortend » Thu Jul 12, 2018 9:14 pm



It is not necessary to delve very deeply into the reasoning and purpose as to why the Great Nortan Railway Tour was conceived and organised, however it is sufficient to say that the Board of Trade, on the personal recommendation of the patron of the Board of Touring, Her Royal Highness, Susanna, the Princess Royal, thought it a good enough idea as to give funds so as to enable the Board of Touring to plan and co-ordinate the entire venture for the benefit of Nortan tourism.

Young ladies and gentlemen from favourable nations are invited to participate in this great tour of six days, which will encompass the sights, sounds and scenes of all across Great Nortend. A full itinerary is published below. No chaperones, nurses or other guardians are permitted, and the Board expects that tourists will be capable of living on their own for less than a week. The minimum age is seventeen and the recommended maximum 24.

The price of the tour is relatively highly oeconomical, being only eight pounds ten shillings for the entire tour's accommodation, set dining, admission fees and more, not including any spending money for dress, souvenirs, tips, stamps and other sundry costs which must be paid out of the individual's own spending money, or the price of obtaining leave to enter from the Home Department. Invoices will be posted after the tour to home addresses. Unfortunately, no wheel-chairs or bath-chairs can be accommodated on this tour.

Small electronic machines such as mobile telephones and photographic cameras are permitted, and can be re-charged with the appropriate adapters, though there is no mobile telephonic reception. Larger electronic machines such as laptop computers may not be brought into the country.

INFORMATION

Touring Great Nortend can be a very daunting and difficult task, as it is quite unlike many other countries in the world. The Board of Touring, however, wishes to make this tour as easy as possible for its participants and thus they shall all be given a small book on the most important things to know when touring in Great Nortend. The three most important chapters are summarised here as a guide.

Currency
The currency of Great Nortend is the Pound Marten, whereof the base denomination is the pound (£). It is subdivided into twenty shillings (/), which are each divided into twelve pennies (d), which are each divided into four farthings (¼d), which are each divided into two octaves (⅛d). Octaves ceased mintage in 1942 and it is unlikely that they will be encountered on a holiday in Great Nortend by a tourist. A rule of thumb for tourists is that one penny marten is worth approximately 50 US cents, and hence a shilling marten approximately 3 US dollars and a pound 120 US dollars.

Dress
As tourists, one will be expected to dress decently by Nortan standards. Blatant failure to comply at all will mark one as a tourist and may lead to harsh words by passers-by and even possible arrest by the police for the most egregious cases. Though it is not expected that one dress entirely in the Nortan fashion, it is highly recommended that one bring at least some of the following garments and accessories, for general day wear in town:

Ladies in the Summer: Summer dress to at least under the knee, not showing shoulders; summer skirt to at least under the knee; blouse; cardigan; straw-hat; gloves; stockings or long socks; shoes. Ladies should not wear trousers.
Ladies in the Winter: Winter dress to at least mid-calf, with or without petticoats; coat; cardigan; scarf; muffler; wool-or-fur-hat; gloves; stockings; closed shoes. Ladies should not wear trousers.
Gentlemen in the Summer: Collared shirt; light jacket and trousers; straw-hat; socks; shoes or boots.
Gentlemen in the Winter: Collared shirt; heavy jacket and trousers; coat; scarf; gloves; jumper or pull-over; wool-or-fur-hat; shoes or boots.

Etiquette
Etiquette is a large part of Nortan life. Whilst tourists and foreigners are not expected to fully observe Nortan etiquette, it is always polite to attempt. Most Nortan items of etiquette are simple and well-known in other nations, though some are more esoteric.

1. Gentlemen should open doors for ladies, or hold them open.
2. Ladies should be introduced to gentlemen, and not the other way around.
3. Gentlemen should stand, if a lady is presented to them, and bow appropriately. The lady should courtesy appropriately.
4. People should talk softly in public and not spit or urinate in the street.
5. Handkerchiefs should be used to muffle sneezes or coughs, not to blow one's nose.
6. It is polite to speak to foreigners in French, not English, unless they express a preference for English.
7. Tipping is not expected at restaurants, public-houses, tea-rooms or other dining establishments, but is for personal services rendered.

ITINERARY

1: Arrival at Airport and train journey to Saint-le-Cross railway station and check in at the Saint-le-Cross Railway Hotel. Visit the Second Tower of Lendert.
2: Lendert-with-Cadell, including: the Palace of St Michael'sgate with a parade of guardsmen, Pole Library, St Peter's Cathedral and the Castle of Lerdenstone. Depart on chartered train in afternoon.
3: King's Rhighton, including: hunting in the Royal Forest of Rhighton at Corswall and a visit to the baths of Hanbath.
4: Chepingstow and Aldesey, including: the ancient University, walking in Grant Woods and along Chepingstow High Street.
5: Isle of Sulthey, including: famous boats across the Sulthey Strait, Sulthey Cathedral, town of Sulthey, Fiddler's Ford.
6: Return to Lendert, train to Airport and departure.

RULES

1. Your posts must be of an appropriate length and contain sufficient content to suit the context. One-line responses in a conversation are not permitted; you should predict what would be asked in response and answer accordingly.
2. You should read through all information and material supplied, to ensure that you understand what is happening.
3. I will be aiming to get through about a day of the tour every few days in reality. Please make sure you check back every few days at least to ensure you do not fall behind too much. If you are unable to meet this commitment, please at least ensure your posts are comprehensive when catching up.
4. Respond NO to the last question in the application.

Questions:

1) Is this RP limited to young characters?
2) Can political or other highly-placed personages apply? Will they be accorded special treatment mandatorily, by their request, or not at all, IC-wise?
Moscareinas is an unexpectedly prosperous democratic republic whose territories include 54% of the western Indian Ocean, the IRL BIOT, Comoros, the Seychelles, Mauritius, and Reunion. Not included: Madagascar.

Moscans are torn about Madagascar.

1. Yes, 17-24 approx would be the range. Must be unwed though, as that complication would be likely rather off-putting for such a tour.
2. They may apply, but they may not be accepted. Children of politicians are fine though, as long as they're not the Prime Minister or something like that. No special treatment will be given unless reasonable, so no armed body-guards or diplomatic immunity. As stated, this is essentially a privately run tour, not a diplomatic tour, that happens to be run by a government board for some strange, undisclosed reason (I didn't want to contrive a reason that would be unrealistic). Bring your common, or rather, common genteel folk!

This could be interesting... pork being such a staple meat in Great Nortend. They could hardly believe some people don't eat bacon, ham, gammon or other forms of pork. Could you include a short description of his appearance though? Also, is he addressed as 'Lord Ashurbanipal' or by another form?

Of course. He basically appears like this, and he's addressed as "Lord Shalmaneser" (or sometimes "Lord Shalmaneser Ashurbanipal"). "Lord" here is a courtesy title granted to sons of a member of the peerage (like in the UK).

The Nortan accent, or at least Standard Nortan Pronunciation, is very clear and easy to understand. Miss Hakase should have no problems if she is able to understand Indian English.

What do you mean, 'a fine suit'? Do you mean suit as in clothing (not really something that is particularly relevant in a tour), or suite as in accommodation?

Oh, that's fine. The default option is a double room at the hotel and a double compartment on the train. She can have a single room (hotel) and a single compartment (train), if she pays £12·0·0 instead of £8·10·0. I'm sure she can afford that... right? Alternatively, a suite de luxe (both) for £17·0·0?

Well, I suppose if you want to really emphasise the distinction between her and the others, a full-carriage suite might be a good idea.

Fair warning: Anyone who's read Purgatio's last RP will know who this guy is, so Nort -- are you cool with a steaming pile of bigotry, mass murderer worship, and sHitler hatred?

Title: "While it would gratify me to be addressed as one would the rightful president of the United States, I would settle for the humble but still appropriate 'Master' for now."
Sex: "A superior male of the superior male of the superior race, that is what I am. Now, as to who I am..."
Surname: "... that would be 'Dwarf'. A mean name for a descendant of such noble figures as Julius Caesar, Charlemagne, and my own father Donald D. Dwarf, you might say! Wrong, for he freed the country of my true heritage from the shackles of multiculturalism! Communism! Globalism! Miscegenation!"
Christian names: "I am his faithful son David, and the only one who is healthy and alive upon this earth."
Age: " Eighteen years of age, just turned last of the first of July."
Address: "I'm currently staying at the Summerson Place, a dormitory near the University of Moscareinas in Le Creuset."

Birth-place: "I was born at the Landmark Medical Center, Independence Avenue, Le Creuset."
Appearance: "I'm white: blond hair to my ears; green eyes that especially my enemies say are piercing, hypnotizing; a complete set of white teeth; a chiseled, well-toned white body, the product of an active lifestyle; a six-foot-six-inch frame, even taller than my father."
Religion: "I'm an atheist, but I can't disagree that... your... creed... has its upside, especially with preserving your nation from the globalist menace."

Are there any special arrangements that are requested? "... I'd like to make some sovereign sandwiches for myself while on board. Will you object to me bringing a portable grill?"
Is it understood that this tour is not a diplomatic visit? "Of course, that goes without saying."

Quite an amusing character really, and I quite fancy taking him to visit Jewry Lane. It's interesting how he prefers 'Master'... given that it's normally the honorific for young boys. How are you going to juggle three characters though?! I shall have difficulty remembering that you're all the same person.

If you have any questions about Great Nortend, please ask in the diplomacy thread above.

This nation generally represents my personal views in most areas, though slightly exaggerated perhaps.

Well, as to my choosing 'Master', that meaning totally escaped me; I didn't know that connotation, but then again, the guy's a manchild, same as his poor dear departed father. And as for the juggling, I'll manage it. Not that I'll actually tailor my narrating voice to suit them, as I'm not yet that good (can you see the source of that self-regard now?), but I'll manage. As for you, well, you can always look to the side and see the flags -- the account always reflects the POV of the person doing the talking (or thinking).

So the question now is, will your characters treat David as if his father's reputation and deeds precede him? Or not? Not that I'm pushing you to, mind: Nortend's relative isolation is an excellent alibi or what have you.

Well, I don't think the officials at the Board of Touring would really have a good history of the presidents of the United States, or of their deeds or offspring, so they wouldn't immediately or even eventually know of David's predecessor. Though they might realise he harbours presidential aspirations, I don't think there'll be much recognition, if at all, of his history and views. Since I'm assuming Peter Smith never went to the Purgatio exchange, since I hardly participated in it, he wouldn't know of David either.

In general though, Nortend isn't supposed to be a sort of isolated North-Korea-like state. It's just a country like, say, Romania, which people have heard of, have a vague impression of being full of old grandmas in a head-scarf waddling into a dairy on a farm, though maybe that's just my impression of it...

There aren't any world-famous immediately recognised buildings or sights in Great Nortend such as Elizabeth Tower, the Eiffel Tower or the Great Wall, and only 2nd level attractions on par with, say Germany, New Zealand, Japan and Canada where one might know one or two landmarks but not necessarily. Your average person might just know Great Nortend as 'the quaint country stuck in the 19th century'. So it's not necessarily isolated, but rather... somewhat Romanian or Bulgarian or Czech.

A slight corrective here: David is not actually president of the United States; he only claims he is, as his father was president, and he (and eventually the government that implemented his policies) was deposed in a coup. In any case, he doesn't recognize the present US government for obvious reasons, and treats himself as a sort of government-in-exile, though beyond his delusions of grandeur no one supports him.

(But on the other hand, you did say most of Nortend would have only a vague idea of outside events and persons. Maybe we can make that a subplot point -- one kind of ignorance propping a far nastier one? Till Jewry Lane -- that one I will urge, because lol.)
