[NSG Senate] Lobby-ing a Scimitar

Postby NSG Senate Administrators » Fri Jun 24, 2016 12:42 pm

The NSG Senate
The Worst State of a Republic


An Introduction
Welcome to the NSG Senate. This is democracy at its worst.

In brief, we are a character-driven and dynamic government simulation roleplay where you will be a politician in the fictional nation of Elizia, where your actions and the actions of your fellow senators will shape the present and the future of the country, for the better or the worse. Will you choose to be a good and trustworthy representative or will you rise to power through backhanded maneuvers and shady deals? Will you be a crossbencher? A minister? Even a general?

Founded by Denecaep and maintained by chief admin (OP) Maklohi Vai and co-admins (co-OPs) Britanno 3, Zurkerx, Merizoc and Arkolon, our roleplay has existed in several iterations for over three years, and we are the non-NS political RP.

Where do I get started?
First off, there's the Senate Lobby which is our OOC thread and your current location, where we discuss about everything related to the roleplay, and sometimes even things that aren't. When needed, it also doubles as a thread where we can roleplay character interactions and other events that are RPed to occur in the legislative building's lobby. Then, there's the Coffee Shop where we propose bills for peer scrutiny and have lively debates on them. The third and arguably most important thread is the Senate Chamber, where we debate bills right before they come to a vote, and cast our ballots to decide whether a bill passes or fails. We also have a thread for applications to join the senate, where you let us know which party you want to join and register a new party should you choose to create one. And last but not least Daily Life in Elizia, where all roleplay that does not happen in the legislative building goes, whether it be a bus ride, a television broadcast or a neo-fascist terrorist attack.

Who are you people?
OOC Administration
OP ("Head Admin") - Maklohi Vai
Co-OPs ("Co-Admins") - Britanno 2, Zurkerx

Alright folks, I'm getting on a plane to Europe tomorrow morning, t minus 18 hours. I will be offline in all likelihood from that point on for about 36 hours. Brit and Zurk will be handling the admin confirmation vote. There shouldn't be much else pressing. I'll be on later tonight and tomorrow morning before leaving.
