I could see telekenesis perhaps working though I am struggling to work in a suitably MT or PMT science wizardy explaination for it. Maybe limit it to one or very few people. Renegades from a science experiment gone horribly wrong. Through careful administration of hallucionagenics they are able to fundamentally alter objects on a subatomic level, moving them telekenetically at some distance. The process would of course be limited and very taxing on the individual.

Obviously that is all science sounding bollocks. Is it suitably sciency enough to pass muster?

I just don't see what the purpose or application of telekinesis would be. You could... open a locked door maybe? Scare some people?

Sure, if you want to join with a puppet, join with a puppet. Puppets are welcome.

Now for the telekinesis, sometimes I like a bit of darkness and mystery. I think it would be best if Frachen gives us a bit more insight. Throwing a truck with the power of the mind is out of question. Opening a lock while messing around with a paperclip and actually believing it was opened through telekinesis seems fine with me. The more other players can ignore the telekinesis and blame it on coincidence and so on the better I like it. Having a special unit of combat magicians or such would need a bit more discussion. Using Telekinesis is a bit like stating to use magic. It needs a bit more explanation. What do you want to do with it and to what extent? That might be helpful.

If it's not too late I would love to join this RP! This would be my first RP on NS, and I'm excited to learn more about Rivienland and RP in general!

Overall, I'm seeing Rivienland as supporting the restoration of the monarchy as an attempt to expand the Grand Duchy's influence abroad.

The royalists eh! Yes, that could be fun.

My recent post. I think a Forestian summit is a good idea. THere's more than a few of us involved in this and it also gives Cat Herders United a springboard for their fact finding mission story arc.

So I’ve read the post itself, interesting stuff. Would really like to take part in roleplaying.
But all of the roleplaying comments on the thread are a complete mess, can’t understand who’s with who and what happened so far apart from the backstory. Please send help, I’d really like to roleplay in this story it truly does sound interesting.

From what I did understand, I think I’ll support the Republic Of Posteastan as they seem as the best option to ensure a post-war democracy. If someone thinks I’m wrong, I’m here to listen. Maybe I’ll change sides eventually.

You could try to establish contact with Great Nortend and carefully enquire what they think about the situation. It is common knowledge that the 'king' resides there.
For additional fun you can check out Great Nortends embasy and stuff to flesh out the characters a bit.

You are welcome. I am a bit short on time at the moment so there is just this quick summary:
Order collapsed Posteastan split into various fractions, each holding a piece of the cake. Other nations have chosen to support one side or the other, either through action or propaganda. And than there are some nations who just have their own agendas and play along with one of the fractions as long as they need to. I have already stated that there are no real good guys in this setting. If you chose one side, make it look good. If you ask for something like previous media coverage of crimes against humanity, than the seperatists probably have the best press because they don't have much attention anyway. But than again, what good would do supporting them for the rest of the nation and the suffering people? And isn't a strong state the only guarantee for the survivel of civilization? Why not support the stateists? They have the best claim to legitimacy. So many questions... Just pick a side and join or ask others IC for their reasons why they came up with their decison.

I would argue that the Royalists have the best claim to legitimacy... but then I'm biased.

Rivienland, I would be pleased to work with you on advancing the Royalist cause. If so, I would recommend your ambassador to Great Nortend write to my foreign office informally inquiring after the matter.

That's why this RP is so great! Everyone thinks differently, so every side has its own claim for legitimacy!

I didn't understand what's going on with the hostage situation. Who's holding hostages? Who's fighting who? And, of course, is the situation known to the public and therefore to me or is it hidden and I'm not supposed to know anything?

Indeed I am. I try to be as fast as I can but sometimes it will take a while to reply. I like to do things in one post but I have really kept the paras waiting for a bit long.

In regard to ISIS, well there are no ISIS cells in Posteastan. Posteastan has never been involved in the middle eastern conflict. We have nationalists and we have moralists and I can offer you the organized crime syndicates but there is no ISIS involvement.

Yeah I was gonna say, I don't really see how ISIS would fit into the picture really.

Fellow Forestians, how do you all want to handle the summit? We could do it in this RP, or create a sperate self contained short RP for the summit. Either approach has worked in the past.

Danlina, are you writing events happening at Rotechko or Pibtsy? I ask because of the presence of Construction Enterprises at the former, which could cause some interaction as we both have been involved with the Syndicate.
A representative democracy with a parliament of 535 seats
Kenmoria is Laissez-Faire on economy but centre-left on social issues
Located in Europe and border France to the right and Spain below
NS stats and policies are not canon, use the factbooks
Not in the WA despite coincidentally following nearly all resolutions
