1870-1900 era war (OOC, sign-up thread, interest)

Postby Sceoji » Tue Apr 12, 2016 8:45 pm

As a former Nation States user who felt the need to return, I simply feel that this time period is not given anywhere near enough love in war threads, and I would like to correct that by officially starting one; I also propose that it not merely be a "war thread". As those can grow tiresome and dull after a while; perhaps a full, three dimensional role-play world where any nations involved can engage in the politics of the time period.

This would include, but is far from limited to:

- Colonial uprisings as people began to grow frustrated with their overlords.

- Further colonization, and all out trade war

- A wide variety of interweaving alliances and things of such a nature

- late century politics, such as the belief your people's may be more civilized than another

- international incidents that explode over-night from something as small as a border skirmish over a heard of sheep

- pitched and unpitched battles ranging on the scales from a few hundred men to over a hundred thousand (no army will EVER be allowed to break 1 million.)

If anyone finds themselves interested, and actually replies to this, I'll have the application up first thing tomorrow; certainly hoping someone will as it's quite the interesting era.

With that good Sir (or Madame, depending on who's reading this) I leave you to your keyboards and hope you'll bite.

To lay down some guidelines and rules of what will be expected in this forum:

1. No million man armies; the year has not been set, but it will be well before the time when any kind of army could hope to supply a million men on the same battlefield. Besides, dysentery is a nasty creature, and overpopulation tends to give it a boon.

2. No controlling other people's attacks, unit reactions, or anything of the like. This is a particular pet peeve of mine and it can ruin a good thread.

3. No shrugging off enemy actions like they don't affect you; it is okay on occasion to have a counter, or to.intercept the enemy's master-stroke; but you are not meta, and you will be unable to defend against all their blows.

3. No name-calling (unless it's IC and pertains to the roleplay, foul language directed at other role-played, or anything otherwise unnecessarily hurtful. Constructive criticism is appreciated; bullying is not tolerated.

4. You must stick to the tech level of the time, though, I may be adding a slight fantasy/other aspect to this depending on consensus. I'm a fair fellow, and will accept ideas. Also, tech that was practical but not widely utilized is STILL considered viable if you can reasonably explain why your Nation defied the trend.

5. No spamming or posting out-of character in the IC thread; we'll either keep this open for out of game chatter, or start a new thread for it later on.

6. Non-human species will be allowed if this goes forward, so long as they have no INCREDIBLY overpowered aspects, or if it is a powerful aspect, it has drawbacks.

7. There will be drawbacks to whatever gear you choose for your men; it's just a fact. You want bullet-proof steel armor? Okay. But your men wearing this must be ENTIRELY immobile, as the weapons of the time were far better at penetration than muskets.

8. Realistic accuracy and things of that nature; your scouts won't be able to open fire at other troops at 2 miles range, no matter how good they are with their rifles.

9. Berserkers are a no-go; you may have similar, or troops of imposing stamina, size, or ferocity but they won't be able to take ten shots from a high-powered rifle and keep on trucking.

10. Last but not least, no superweapons. You may design your own weapons if you so feel the need, but I'd prefer images be provided for realism, and you CANNOT have a weapon that can kill an entire army.

Well, that would depend upon your personal preference really. You could choose to be your own Nation, or a nation that existed in that time period. It's really all up to you. I was honestly hoping to go for using our own nations, as I see more fun in creating our own spats, power struggles, military's, cultures, traditions etc.

I would like to claim the Ottoman Empire if possible. And we should probably start at 1870

That's no problem guys; you can definitely choose real-world empires, and as the first two to arrive, you do take seniority.

And to answer you Ottomann, I would like to start in 1871. I do want to be able to equip my forces with my favorite rifle of the era, which wasn't invented until as said, 1871.

I will be loosely (semi) patterning my forces off of the British army of around the same time. I won't be going verbatim however, and will be creating my own faction/Nation.

Well in theory, a joint force could achieve such numbers, and an empire that absorbed another could possibly do the same; though to field and command a million men at the same time might be a little out there logistically, so long as the weaknesses are there, I suppose it could be allowed.

Ok!

More ideas:
- Napoleon wins all the Napoleonic wars
- HRE survives
- Kalmar Union survives, and expands

Here are some far fetched ones:

- Alien invasion
- Ireland unites in 1500-1600 and makes colonies
- HRE colonies
- Crusader States survive to present day
- Atlantis exists

Sure; you've been very active and I'd be glad to have a bit of help with all of this. Do you know anyone who might be interested BTW? As soon as we get 5 on-board, I'll post the sheets. If all goes swimmingly, sometime tomorrow we may start the IC.

Although Ottomann is not that active, I think he deserves Co-OP status, after all, he was the first to arrive.

Land-Wanking

Postby New Communist and Socialist Unions » Wed Apr 13, 2016 12:03 am

So, a region mate of mine, said that some people have been claiming massive amounts of land, so with the approval of the OP, I can tell them to lessen their land.

Of course, and while I think something should be done, this RP will be carried out separately from those maps, as it is posted here and not on the offsite forum. We will simply claim what lands we seek for our nation's.

For Sceoji I would like to claim Britain and Ireland; I have an idea that works out nicely, essentially an Irish overthrow of the British Monarchy and the unison of the two islands. This occurs after Britain is weakened fighting Napoleon; the new Nation is deemed the Republic of Sceoji, an old Celtic word for unity (not actually, but it works.)

Interesting. I would and might be playing as the Philippine First Republic, assuming they have worldwide recognition (because the Treaty of Paris meant that Spain will hand Philippines and other to US possession, which made Americans assume that the independence declaration was null) and US Independence War style revolution before 1898.
