Sure! You might consider doing a 'this is my nation for the purposes of NS RP' factbook and/or/as well as a 'this is my nation for the purposes of this other RP' or a 'I also like to do this other RP elsewhere' dispatch. Something to help others keep things straight, perhaps?

That's not a problem, it's just a matter of communicating this with people. I run multiple nations folded in this (misnamed) account, for example, and I do try to be clear with who I'm acting as in my threads; I have otherwise encountered no issues.

I got this useless and most annoying international issue

Issue Series

“An International Incident”

No chance to develop your nation stats, no chance for cards, just a waste.

Why?!

So I can delete my nation for this has all become pointless.

Other get useless issues to develop and grow, and I'm doomed with this crap?

The last issue didn't even let me a choice...I could just dismissed it.

I'm gonna bite, even though I suspect this is a set up due to your almost 17 year old founding date.

So, this isn't a roleplaying question. This matter would go to the Got Issues? forum.

Also, you would delete your nation over this? How you answer issues has nothing to do with how you wish to RP or world-build your nation. Most players expanding on their IC canon of their nation on NS don't really pay attention to issues or how any gameplay affects their nation, and you shouldn't get too concerned about it, either.

Again though, you don't actually seem concerned about RP at all, but rather GP aspects of this site. Head over to the previous linked forum and hopefully you'll get the answers you seek.

Hi there! I was just wondering where I could learn to start roleplaying as I don't feel particularly good and feel incredibly overwhelmed by how in-depth and extensive the RP is here. Where would be a good place to start for baby's first RP session on NationStates?

F7, or, Forum 7 is a little subforum here where you play small games (and not for AltHist). But on NationStates, you are generally free to do whatever you like RP-wise. You can literally make up your own world if you want, and roleplay it here. The choice is yours.

You could post something just like this over in the RP Think Tank - or create a new thread and then link it along with your concept - 'Baby's First RP Session' - over in the same! I would suspect with a thread titled 'Baby's First RP Session' you'd get at least a few looks. Lay out what you're interested in doing - 'I would like to RP my leader's new baby daughter having a play-date with your leader's baby' - and then do some back-and-forth with whoever bites. Though unless there is actual biting involved such an RP would probably be better suited for the NationStates sub-forum rather than International Incidents. Biting another baby is definitely casus belli.

Or at least cause for crying.

List your expectations and your own level of commitment; 'Slow paced, smaller posts and replies are okay, no kids over the age of two,' etc. You will get more and better participants if you reply and interact in a timely manner though, so keep that in mind. Unless you already have an extensive canon - your nation and character's backstory, flavor, culture, and the like - you might also mention that you'll essentially be making things up as you go along. That's fine, of course - it just helps set expectations. Then... Just watch and see what happens. Sometimes a post will stay on the front page for a while, sometimes they'll fall off quickly and you won't get any interest. If it happens it happens - try again and see if you can tweak things a bit. You might also ask some of your region-mates if they are interested, or even directly ask another specific player. Again, timely replies help a lot - even if they're short!
