The International Incidents Stickies

Postby Euroslavia » Thu Jan 21, 2010 4:21 pm

Getting Started with Nationstates


Welcome to 'Getting Started with Nationstates'. This thread will provide the basic framework for general rules and learning and all things in regards to how to properly Role Playing in the International Incidents and Nationstates forums. If you're looking for Euroslavia's International Incidents Information Desk, you can find it here.

Additionally, a link will be available at the bottom of each of the information posts in this thread for easy access.

> Work things out OOC <

First piece of advise is fairly simple; you will find that when you start an role-play with a nation you may have combat with, you will find that most of the time you will both have different technologies and ideas on how the role-play will go. As such it’s important to work out any problems OOC before you start the RP. You can do this in MSN, telegram or even in a separate thread… if you don’t do this you may waste a lot of time arguing with the other nation over the power of your weapon, why they aren’t taking enough damage and so on.

> Spelling, Grammar and Format <

This is a quick addition, but basically if you want to be understood you should make it easier to read for everyone else. Basically you should try and make sure that you’re spelling it reasonable, your grammar is ok and your format makes it easy for people to read. The best way to achieve this is to use a program like Win Word to spell check your post and maybe even point out some grammar problems.

> Its freeform baby! <

Yeah, I know I should have pointed this out earlier, but it goes without saying. You can RP anything you want and there is little anyone can do about it. Remember, while you can role-play anything, you can also ignore anything. So while you can RP your nation being the best in the universe, everyone else can ignore such a claim and choose not to RP with you. That’s the beauty of freeform, and it’s greatest frustration. This is why you should be reasonable.

> Be descriptive <

This isn’t really as important, but it makes the thread a whole lot better. The more description you put into it, the more interesting it is to read and the more you will enjoy the role-play on the whole.

> Have fun <

It gets forgotten a lot of the time but Nationstates is just a game; albeit an addictive game which takes a lot of time and effort for some people. The important thing is to have fun; if you are not having fun then you should try something else. Tired of having wars with everyone? Chill out and try something else, make peace with those you fight or have a peace conference… that way you automatically have a character/diplomatic role-play.

What is Godmoding?

Postby Euroslavia » Thu Jan 21, 2010 4:43 pm





Definition of Godmoding

1) Saying what happens to other people's stuff.
2) Refusing to take any losses. Or lose. Ever.
3) Having übertech armies that are too large, etc.
4) Having your nation’s geography to your extreme advantage.


1) Example: "Okay, I just blew up 300,000 of your troops!"

Why this is Godmoding: Because in free form role-play, it's up to the person being attacked to determine their own losses. This leads to OOC (out of character) bickering which in turn, ruin the entire RP. Trust me, it’s happened many times. Don’t let it happen.


2) Example: "Oh, well, my soldiers had personal forcefields so none of them were actually hurt."

Why this is Godmoding: This is probably where godmoding gets its name (from God Mode in Doom, where you were invincible after typing IDDQD). Naturally, if nobody ever takes a hit, the fight degenerates into "I HIT YOU!" "NO YOU DIDN'T!", etc. Remember now, roleplaying isn’t about winning or losing, it’s about telling a story. A nation who is willing to accept defeat gains a lot of respect from others, in turn. Refusing to lose could permanently damage your reputation, making not too many people not want to RP with you.


There is no device known or yet to be invented which is perfect. There is no perfect stealth, there is no perfect radar, there is no perfect acoustical protection, there is nothing which cannot be defeated. Therefore you cannot tell someone what their results are in trying to find you! You can tell them how your system works, but you can't off and say "you can't see me nyah!".

> Military Involvement with Nations NOT Bordering You <

You cannot directly invade a nation that doesn’t border you. There has to be a way to get there, whether it be with transports, airdrops, or permission to march through another nations’ territory. You cannot just say that your troops arrived at their border and are invading. That, in itself, is a godmode, coinciding with the “Very Fast Troops” explanation.


> The Effects of War <

Wars on your soil damage your infrastructure and economy in ways not quantified by the game in NS1. Wars abroad typically cost lots of money. Keep that in mind, for those of you who are frequent warmongers. Mobilizing troops, tanks, artillery, planes, etc, takes a surprising amount of money each time you do it. Be careful about how you do it as well, especially for you younger nations out there. Your first action being a mobilization, is definitely not recommended. Other things that’ll cost you money is keeping your mechanized military up-to-date, and refurbished. You can’t just let it sit in the shop, its gotta be checked every now and then for problems, and tested out. Don’t forget the amount of supplies each soldier will need too. They’ll obviously need food, water, and for those of you out there who take things safe, gas masks, and things like that [do not mistake this for needing to KNOW the exact amounts].

Details about War

Postby Euroslavia » Thu Jan 21, 2010 4:54 pm





Details about War


Q: Um...where is the 'declare war' button?
A: There isn't. War on NationStates is entirely role play, there is no actual game engine that makes war. What is that you may ask? Make believe story telling, plain and simple. NS war can be fought in a few ways, and many NSers have their own style they like to use.


Q: How do I make a military?
A: Simple, but there is no 'create army' button you press. While there is no fixed number as to what size your military can be, generally it is an age old rule of thumb that it remain around .5% to 5% of your population. However you are not obligated to follow this guideline, though most experienced RPers would agree an excessively large military will wreck your economy.

Generally most armies don't have more than a few million men total, including reserves, logistics, medics, ground pounders, etc. This number can depend on how strong your economy is and how big your population is. Simply take your population and divide it by the percentage you want. Remember, a military cannot function soley with infantry. You need mechanics, medics, support, officers, etc. Just like in real life (even though NS is NOT real life).


Q: Ok, I want to go to war! What do I do?
A: Well, first off you have to get a few things down before you rush off to battle. Some things you should think of before you attack another nation are:

* Why are you attacking that nation/alliance/region? What did they do to warrant a strike by your military?
* Is your military capable of fighting large scale, protracted wars?


Good Reasons for War:
1. Attack on your nation/territory
2. Attack on an ally
3. Human rights violations
4. WMD possession
5. Conquest


Bad Reasons for War:
1. His leader insulted mine!
2. I want to rule teh world!!!1111Shift+1
3. He said my mom was fat!

Question and Answer Session


1) So what is International Incidents?
Good question. This is one of the two forums dedicated to the role play of your nations. It generally focuses on exactly that, incidents, war, and disasters, along with pretty much anything you can think of. Character role plays, meetings, diplomacy, etc.

2) I'm not even sure where to begin.
Well first thing's first. Get your creative juices flowing. What would you want your nation to be like? Do you want it to have a dictator in charge of everything? Do you want a democracy? Do you want a monarchy? Or perhaps a nation in total anarchy? It's all up to what you think would be best. The beauty of free form role play is that you can make your nation be whatever you want it to be.

3) Okay, I think I'd like to stick with a dictator. What next?
So you've got what type of government you have. Think about what your nation as a whole would be like geography-wise. Do you want it to be full of forests? Mountains? Deserts? Also, what resources would you have available to your people? Salt? Fish? Iron? Oil? Considering these things can pave the way to developing trade with other nations, which can lead to some interesting role plays.

4) Okay, I want my nation to be an island nation with it's main resource to be fish.
Awesome! What I would start doing now is looking over some of the other role plays. If you don't feel too comfortable making a new thread yourself, just check out what other people are posting. See the detail that they put into their posts. It can give you a lot of ideas on what your posts should contain. Remember, the more detailed you make your posts, the better.

"Jane went to the store and came back home." sounds pretty bland and boring, eh?
"Jane took a brisk walk to the store that was within one mile of her apartment. She was in need of vegetables, drinks, and plates for the events that she had mapped out for the night. Walking into the supermarket, she quickly grabbed a cart, flew through the isles of food, and made a quick pit stop at the vegetable isle, and then proceeded to make a 180 degree turn towards the registers." Etc.

The difference between those two alone are massive. And that's just an example of the sort of thing that will turn one into a true storyteller. You want your readers to truly feel as if they were in that story, to feel the actions that are being committed.

5) So now what?
Now that you have the general knowledge you need to start your own RP, consider what you want it to be. Do you want to start a revolution RP, and perhaps find a nation that you could break off from?

Example: Let's say that I wanted my nation to be formed from a revolution from another country here. (First, telegram that nation and ask them if they'd be interested in doing something like this) If they're okay to go along with it, let's get a few questions tossed out. What exactly makes your declaration valid? Why exactly are you breaking away as your own nation? If you can get enough people interested in your cause, they may offer aid to you or even help you in the war (Just make sure that if people want to jump into the war, that they know exactly what's going to happen).

6) What if I don't want to start my nation off through a revolution?
Again, the beauty of free form role play. You can start your nation off however you'd like. You can make a quick post stating who you are, what your leader's name is, what your nation is like (government, resources, geography), and you can state exactly what you're looking for. Diplomatic relations with others? Trade resources? War? (I would suggest avoid war for now. You're a young nation with a very minimal population, and getting involved in a war so early will likely result in your nation being jumped by multiple people) Really, it can be whatever you want. The point of this forum is to tell a story to your liking. Enjoy it, play with it, and have fun with others.


Moral of the story: Free form role play. Mold your nation into whatever you'd like it to be. Stay reasonable. Stay respectful of other players (out of character, at least. They're here to play the game just like you). Help out new players. Follow the rules. That's it!

The International Incidents Help Index

Postby Jenrak » Sun Oct 10, 2010 1:14 pm

The Thread Assistance Index

    The Thread Assistance Index is an informal hodge-podge-esque agglomeration of 'help' threads, questions, slight discussion and generally any informal assistance for the International Incidents forums. The main purpose of the TAI is to link and provide help to any and all players who have, do not want to, or are reading the stickies. The function of the Thread Assistance Index, furthermore, is to cut down on stickies within International Incidents by linking all threads together and leaving the threads to simply float. Finally, it is a reference point for multiple assistance areas, such as The Extranet, the International Incidents IRC and general RPing in International Incidents.

    Discussion, suggestions and any talks are welcome'd in this thread, but please keep it minimal to the relevant links or threads. Do not treat this as a conversation thread, but rather treat this as a moderation-esque thread: in other words please cut down on any irrelevant subjects.

IRC Channel: #II

    To join the IRC thread:
    1. Click on the #II link provided.
    2. You will be directed to a screen with a textbox. Type in #II (As in International Incidents, so the letter 'I', not 'L')
    3. You will be prompted for your nickname. Please use your nation name, or a similar name, or tell us who you are so we know.

    The IRC Channel is open to all IIers, regardless of tech level. You can hang out, talk, chat, whatever. Please be courteous and kind, and if you run into any problems, please let any of the Operators know. That's pretty much it.

Helpful Threads, Tips, and Discussions


    List of Organizations, Alliances, and Unions

This list is supposed to act as a helping tool for those nations seeking allies and friends who share similar (IC) views. The list is obviously inspired by the GE&T list of storefronts of which I am a great fan. Just as the list of storefronts make life a lot easier for those looking for something to buy or sell it is my hope that this list will be a help to those in need of alliances. Thus, in the interest of providing the users of NS II with a comprehensive guide to organizations, alliances and unions I hereby present the unofficial list of such entities. I hope people will welcome the initiative...

Not a single handler in the history of NationStates can openly claim to be the perfect writer; we all carry room for improvement!

    The Psychology of the States (Not recommended until you've gotten the gist of general RPing)

    Jenrak wrote:The study of the state is complex, at the least. At the least. The focus is that a state is multitude of things, but at the base, can be defined to be only one thing. But realistically, the idea of a nation state is a young entity that has only come into existence relatively early compared to Unions, Federations and Empires. It is a post-modernistic idea, still young and misunderstood. What I hope to entail, detail and describe to you, the reader, is the complexity of the state; it is not an empire. It cannot be an empire, otherwise it would be called one. But what makes a state a state? And if we're going to play a game called 'NationStates', then perhaps it would be good to define, explain and introduce those who may be uncertain to the study of the state...


    The Post

    Jenrak wrote:The situation of writing in International Incidents has been akin to a literary Realist’s wet dream. If the allusion is lost on you, then don’t worry. Suffice to say, the widespread use of different writing styles, the different application of prose and the varied effectiveness is offset by the lack of stronger and more open ‘authorities’ on writing to enforce or destabilise certain styles of writing. While the International Incidents Information Desk has touched on the foundations of managing and working with the nation itself, the fact of the matter is that RPing is a story-based activity. Understanding the mechanics and rules of war or diplomacy is nice, but applying that knowledge into a story that doesn’t revolve around explosions, sex or mindless violence (which is still equally exciting) may be difficult...

Hopefully, this will expand into something bigger, and perhaps even more so than simply a private (i.e. me only) discussion on the affairs of war...

The Featured Articles Index

    The Featured Articles Index is a listing and [at the moment of this writing] experimental change to the International Incidents' Stickies setup. The attempt of the Featured Articles Index is to tabulate and list all articles listed as Featured on the International Incidents page. These articles have been deemed through myself (Jenrak) to have been considered to be extremely helpful and worthwhile threads that can be a boon to assisting in fostering a more active, vibrant and trained II community in the ways of Role Playing.

    Articles are posted one by one, with no determined time frame for them. Submission of any article for 'Featuring' carries little guidelines, save common sense. If there is strong sentiment for people for me to take an article down (near unanimous), then I will abide by II's decision to do so. If any authors wish for me not to put it up, I will abide by their decisions.

    Like I said, this is experimental in the new II layout, so please let me know if you run into problems or issues.

I know. Some don't use Chatzilla or Firefox, and others are not used to IRC, and the Espernet link has the least amount of effort, so it's the easiest to get acclimated to it.

Interesting links - I've added them all save for Solm's given that Euroslavia has the same one as the first post in the Shortened Stickies.

Is there anything with input on RP groups and the like? Most groups get started, but I can only name two or three off the top of my head that survived three months.

Hmm? I'm not sure I'm understanding what you're saying.

Something concerning the creation, development, and continuation of RP groups (such as E:E or E2).

Not that I know of, but I could be wrong on that end.

If you go out to any of the forums, there should be a large "Newtopic" button, which will make a new thread. Hope this helps mate.

It is considered spam and everyone should really use the bookmark feature (which, in my opinion is a lot better and easier). But, rarely does one get a warning for a tag, more of a "there is a bookmark feature."

Tagging's kinda like jaywalking - it's an offense, but it's really not enforced.
