Sure, but it is awfully similar. Helen of Troy is a classic trope, even if it's not used a lot these days. Not saying you can't put in a whole original framework around that is unique to your canon and the nations who join in on this, and I'd be very interested to read the results. So good luck to you and I hope you can make it successful.

I am planning to eventually make a War RP about restoring a ‘Dynasty of Xingqiao’ that I’m thinking up history for and I have a rough map drawn up of that land. It will progress along a peninsula that looks like Greece and will be fighting through both thick jungles, steep mountains and dense cities. It’s going to be PMT and there will be more of a wider ‘front’ view with snippets of views of the different soldiers instead of a first-person view.

I've got an open PMT-tech RP in signup stage.
It's inspired by both real-life current events in Venezuela and an exaggerated version of Chilean history, as well as the campaign storyline from Call of Duty: Ghosts. The tech, weaponry, and gear references previously-mentioned CoD, Fallout, Rainbow Six: Siege, and other games and works of fiction. Tropical Amazon landscapes based around infantry, naval rushes and standoffs, and skirmishes around urban areas are offered.

This is one of the first RPs I've ever hosted (my second, actually), and it's also my first RP involving a sort of grand-scale conflict. I want to be able to write stories and elaborate on the experiences of a lot of characters, from a Peruvian doctor and military veteran tending to Chilean mercenaries to a Venezuelan special operations team and its plan of operations, instead of the common 1-liner cutthroat competition to glory we see a lot. It's open, too, so anyone can start or continue their RP experiences here.

My RP concept involves inner Beta, and the struggles to make it relivant again. Trying to setup trade networks, pick up the ruins of all the wars, and trying to exploit all the wormholes in the area to make inner Beta a strong, stable place for Betaians.

I'm going to do an alternate history RP around what's probably the first war Earth has faced, long before humans were around. Tech level would be FT or a really hard PMT to reflect the Jinns' advanced civilizations despite being set roughly 3 million years ago (actual time still subject to change, prbably to the late Cretaceous)

Before God created Adam, the first human and the first Muslim (Prophet), He created Jinn and had them live on Earth. They were advanced, but so corrupt and horrible that the only thing that stopped them from slaughtering each other to extinction is the war angels declared on them under orders from God.


Devastated from the war and scared of further conflicts, the Jinn put a large amount of magic and tech to 5 living creatures to use as organic WMDs in case such a large conflict arises again. Since in this timeline, Jinn live in the same dimension as animals before Adam arrived, they would probably have found an alternate dimension to move to by the end of the war, which explains why humans live on a different dimension from them.


Two questions:

1. Should I make this RP open to everyone, or a narrative only I contribute to?

2. Should the 5 ancient beings be dragons or a variety of species?

Made this nation to see if there’s any interest in a long-term alternate history roleplay? It’d be in a world kinda like The Man in the High Castle, where the Axis won World War 2. Alt nations required. I won’t be able to write up the full lore and make the map for about a week since I don’t have my laptop with me, but this is the basics of it and available nations.

BACKGROUND: The point of divergence is at the Battle of Stalingrad, where German forces were able to win a decisive victory, causing the Soviet military to slowly fall apart. Japan declared war on the USSR and invaded from the East, while they also attacked the US at Pearl Harbor. The Soviets could not reorganize enough to fight a two front war and surrendered. The war continued in the Atlantic and Pacific as well as in Africa, where Italy and Germany managed to push through the Middle East. Britain and America attempted to land in France several times, but each time were pushed back. The war continued in a slight stalemate, until around 1946, when Germany invented the atomic bomb and promptly dropped it on London. America developed it soon after, and an uneasy white peace was created between the Allies and Germany. A similar ceasefire was created once Japan acquired their own nuclear bombs.

CURRENT STATE OF THE WORLD: The year is 1948. A Cold War not unlike the one in our world is taking place, with the remaining superpowers racing to develop new nuclear weapons, explore space, and establish puppets in smaller nations.

STARTING POSITIONS OF AVAILABLE NATIONS:

GERMANY (claimed by: me): The Third Reich, arguably the most powerful nation in the world, owns most of Europe. France, Denmark, Norway, Poland, most of Yugoslavia, Benelux, and half of Russia all are part of the Greater German Reich. They own large parts of Africa and some of Asia as well. They are a strict fascist empire, under the command of one Führer, Adolf Hitler. The Second Weltkrieg has taken a heavy toll on the Reich however, and many people in the empire still yearn for liberation from their occupiers. The horrors of the Holocaust have not been stopped, and with the war ended Hitler appears to be even more concerned with eliminating races he considers “undesirable”.* Their military is still considered nearly undefeatable, and their nuclear program is stronger than any other.

JAPAN (vacant): The Empire of the Rising Sun controls the vast majority of Asia, as well as many islands in the Pacific. Although the Americans managed to defeat a large amount of the navy and retake several islands before the armistice, Japan is still a beast. While the navy was weakened, the army was as strong as ever and managed to conquer the remainder of China and eventually British India, as well as much of Siberia. Key territories in the Pacific like Indonesia and the Philippines remain under Japanese control. Japan is also fascist, and life is not the easiest for enslaved races under Japanese control. Although their fleet was damaged, Japan is already rebuilding, and their military that would rather die than surrender terrifies the world, as well as their own developing nuclear program.

UNITED STATES (vacant): The US, while being the superpower least damaged from the world war, is still in an uneasy situation. They own most of North America, while also holding bases and positions in nations all around the world. Latin America and the remaining democratic nations in the world look to America for protection. They still own a powerful military and a strong nuclear program, but a potential renewed German-Japanese alliance could stomp out the last democratic world power for good.

ITALY (vacant): Fancying themselves as the Novas Imperium Romanum, Italy controls Greece and Albania, as well as parts of Yugoslavia, France, Africa, and the Middle East. The birthplace of fascism, Italy continues to follow the rule of Mussolini. Their military still isn’t the most disciplined, and without a strong nuclear program Italians constantly live in fear of the 3rd Reich breathing down their neck.

THE COMMONWEALTH(vacant): The British Empire is a shell of its former self. With Raj and all of its African territories fallen to the Axis, Britain’s power is extremely limited. Canada is still part of the British sphere, as well as Australia and New Zealand, but as the Commonwealth as a whole starts to enter the American sphere this has mattered less and less. The island of Britain itself has been nearly destroyed by the war, as along with years of bombing by the Germans they took several nuclear attacks, including one to London. They are still a democracy, and are still very strategically important to America due to their proximity to Germany in the event that war breaks out again, even with the nuclear threat.

IBERIA (vacant): After Francisco Franco won the Spanish Civil War, he waited until it was clear the Nazis would win before entering the war. He quickly took Gibraltar, then invaded Portugal and pushed into Free France in Africa. While not as strong as most of the other fascist nations, Nationalist Iberia has a strong army and still hungry for more land, especially the Latin American nations they once owned, under the protection of the US.

OTHER NATIONS (all vacant): There are a few other nations besides the 6 main powers available. These will become more obvious once I make the map, but a minor country like Finland, Mexico, Switzerland, Brazil, or Thailand might still be fun to play as.

So TG me if you’re interested! I might have to make a new region for it just to organize it all I’m not sure, or if you have ideas to improve it let me know.

For both Groberesdeutschesreich and Insurgia, keep in mind that NS and II are usually for RP involving NS nations. Your interesting RP concepts would be better suited to the Portal To The Multiverse subforum. Plus, you're likely to get a lot more interested RPers who enjoy RPing alternate historical RL nations and maps.

* Might go for Amenria too, but the Jinn civilization twist sounds like it could go to either NS/II or P2TM.

Hello I made a RP forum about a war but no one seems to join. I wasn't to see if you people like my idea.

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=455269

That's the link and it's about some communist nations splitting from the WA and making their own alliance, and the WA becomes the Blue Capitalist Republic, while the commies become the Red Communist Confederacy.

The war is fought on a normal world map and it is just supposed to a total war. There are rules to make sure no one God mods and you can join any time.

Hope you join!

There's a reason most folks are giving your RP idea a pass. Some advice, if you care to hear it:

1. There's certain RP conventions that don't need to be explicitly spelled out. Most of your rules boil down to 'No godmodding', aside from making it 'family friendly'. Two of your rules are OP godmodding - You state when the war ends and a player can only fight in one war zone at a time. That's a bit limiting for strategy if players choose to accept those terms for joining the RP.

2. While technically you have made an 'open' RP, you have made it so overly structured that those who join must fit within 2 narrowly focused tracks, or factions, the RCC or BCR. Not everyone might identify with either side. You even mentioned a third potential faction - The Imperialists, but didn't offer them as a factional option and instead lumped them in with the left. Why would imperialists work with communists and socialists when ideologically they are so opposed? Why wouldn't they join the Blue faction? Seems some backstory is lacking there. Neutrals don't seem to be a viable 3rd option, but more of an outlier.

3. You are requiring people to RP on a RL world map, with no indication of where their home NS nations would or could be, or how they fit into the canonical structure. Pick a lane. NS or RL. As said before, if it's RPing RL nations, such threads work best in the P2TM subforum. Although they happen often enough in II, they usually end in a trainwreck because the above mentioned logistical issues aren't really worked out and you have some RPing RL nations and others doing their NS nations and how they got on the same battlefield is confusing. You can suspend disbelief and be vague, but that lack of substance in canonical detail usually leads to godmodding you're trying to avoid and short lived RPs.

4. Putting it in the framework of factionalized WA politics might work, but the details seem lacking here somehow or far fetched. What actual leaders or nations helped to form these factions and what major events led up to that? This is where it helps to brainstorm an RP first with other willing players. I suggest you look at seeking out players without forcing them to accept your edicts, and come up with something more organic together, or at least put a little more thought into that OP.

Well, pretty good. Definitely improved and now you have 4 solid factions. You don't want superpowers, so... I think what you need to do is limit forces. Maybe 1 Million troop total? 3000 tanks? 700 aircraft? 3 aircraft carriers? Certain number of fleets?

Those are just arbitrary numbers, you can set limits to whatever you want. When you say people have to be reasonable about their forces, however, it's better to not leave that up to their interpretation and to set the limits yourself. That's part of the job of OP.

It's still not clear why the WA quickly said all the rest of the leftist (rogue, 'rouge' is French for red) nations are out, or that they also turned on the imperialists, but...Whatever. You don't really need an indepth excuse for the breaking into factions I suppose, to make a war. Some do like that, but for what you're focused on, it's best not to get hung up on that. Crafting OPs with more info will come with time.

Economics would definitely play a factor, but again, I think that might be getting too complicated for a starter war RP. Sometimes it helps to know on the app the GDP, major trading partners, major resources and exports/imports, but again, with time and a few more RPs under your belt, that can eventually be worked in.

Bumping: You haven't yet, but it might help to do a bumping post. Here's the thing - actually just writing 'bump' in a post looks tacky and desperate. I would say fill out your own app with the stats you're going to use. If no one else joins in a day, yours will be the last post in the thread still. Hit 'Edit' button, Copy your text, delete the post, then post again, pasting in the text you have just copied. Voila! Classy bump to get you back up at the top of the list. If someone does join, but then a couple more days lapse, you can accept their app (or reject it or ask questions about it), then you can keep copy-pasting and deleting and re-posting that post, etcetera. You can also post more plot direction points you envision for the RP in order to keep interest up.

Hope that helps.

Something else I realized. You don't need to put '(New)' and '(App)' in the title. Instead, you should probably state the tech, which we didn't cover. I would assume it's MT as would most players, probably. However, it doesn't hurt to be explicit. Some players might want to bring in fantasy tech or future tech, or not be clear on if there's a certain decade cut off at PMT (Post Modern Tech). Some might want it to be PT (Past tech). It's up to you whether you will allow FT, FanTech or PMT. Once again, that is the job of the OP is to set the tech level so everyone is on the same page from the start and no godmodding allegations arise because of a misunderstanding.

EDIT: Also, 'open' means they can just join in on the IC thread whenever. If you want them to fill out an application first and be accepted, that's not an open RP.

At the risk of entering broken record territory again...Move it to P2TM where people RP alternate history more instead of II where players most often prefer to RP as their NS nation. You are missing your target market, at least the ones that will give you quality alternate history RP.

It seems that the roleplay concerns Deutschess Kaiserreich's civilization anyway, but I do agree that it gives off more of a P2TM vibe with the description since there's little reason for other random nations to get involved as in other International Incident roleplays.

Just your average edgy weeb writing about accidental exaggerated fantasy-tech version of America who really thinks they need to get less ridiculous.
Fantasy-tech & right-before-steam-machines tech nation populated by Demons from Heroes of Might & Magic V that got too much chaos. Now they can form a high functioning civilization!
If you compliment/thanked me, assume I've thanked you/said you're welcome but didn't write it out (feels like a waste of time for you to check your thread for something like that)

The thing is that this is the beginning of a big series. This will set up the first dominoes for the greatest and most decisive era in earth history. It will lead to a war in which not even space is safe. This is my beginning of my “Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Reich.” Series.

On the fact on world building this is where I plan to focus more on the cultural impacts of the event and how my government reacts to it. I also plan to finally explore in detail the alternative world I have created such as the Persian state, Empire of Japan, a fractured America etc etc etc.

But I’ll change it. Should I just show you just in case?
