What are your plans for Callista, Togeria? Not necessarily ICly, but in general.

In general I want Callista to become the Rome of the New World in sense of prestige, glory, and all that and from there develop into something of its own. It's one thing to just be copy but it's another to steal because when you steal you make something yours, and from the Latin influence that will hopefully mix with cultures that will likely migrate to Callista I can make something entirely new in this world.


That sounds awesome ^_^ I hope that you succeed in that, since having the Rome of the New World as an ally would benefit me, and it'd be cool to see Callista become an even more interesting component of this roleplay.
Depression kind of goes along with not being liked, especially when you ask for help, and don't get it. Remember that, okay? There are people who need someone, even if in a small way. Don't avoid them because of a misunderstanding, them having a bad day, and definitely not because everyone else does it. Even if it's just a fifteen minute conversation about nothing, it might help.

I am deeply sorry for the attacks on your nations capital, and pray for those affected by the attacks both in Paris and throughout France. As a fellow Muslim I apologize deeply and in place of those who use our religion to commit such an heinous crime. I pray for France, for Paris, and for all those affected.

Right now I'm most worried about my navy. My nation needs a large, strong navy to defend itself, and to maintain its trade interests (like routes and the shipments it makes on a regular paces).

Those nasty Europeans also might want my land.

Full Nation Name : Kingdom of Germania, or Germanic Empire
Majority/Official Culture :German
Territorial Core : Germany, Denmark, Prussia, Silesia, Iceland (Eismark), Cameroon on map, South Africa on the Map, New Zealand, Norfolk Island, and New Caledonia (Neues Deutschland), Mauritius and Reunion Island (Germanic/Deutsche Madagaskar), St. Helena (Sudatlantik),
Territorial Claim :Rest of South Africa, rest of the Baltic coast, Poland, Bohemia
Capital City :Hamburg
Population : 53 million

Government Type : Constitutional Monarchy
Government Ideology/Policies : militant
Government Focus : Largely focused on Economy with Military focus to enforce colonies, trade, etc.
Head of State : King Otto V
Head of Government : Dictator Johann Kleiner
Government Description : Most of the power still resides with the King, the elected Senate is administrated by the Dictator who is appointed from their number by the king. The Senate can veto the King's decree's with a 2/3rds majority. Laws made by the Senate must be okayed by the King unless the Senate overrules him with a 2/3rds majority. The King has full executive powers and can grant amnesty or declare a state of emergency giving him full power with just the acceptance of the Dictator.

Majority/State Religion : Teutonist
Religious Description : Combination of Catholic Christian Hierarchy with Old Germanic Pagan gods and Myths into the religion. Each of the old gods is worshiped as a patron angel sent by god to watch over and guide humanity. Except Hel and Fenrir who fell with Lucifer and satan which are separate beings in the Teutonist Psuedo Pantheon. The Teutonist symbol is a upside down Hammer inlaid into the Cross. The Term Apostle is used for the leader of the Church, much like a pope. The Church is centered out of Koln or Cologne.

Economic Ideologies : Protective Capitalism
Major Production : Refined materials and processed and manufactured goods.
Economic Description : Largely set up to refine imported materials as well as those found in the homeland regions of Germania. The exported items include weapons, textiles, building materials, and completed machinery and machinery parts among several others.

Army Strength : High Morale, Very Well Equipped and trained.
Army Weakness : smaller force, has a small fraction of forces outside wartime, continuously changing equipment can lead to logistical problems
Naval Strength : Hardy and fast ships with many ironclads armed with rams
Naval Weakness : few vessels compared to non military ships
Further Military Description : The Germanic Military has a long and proud history often stretched to include Arminius who defeated the Romans in the Teutoburg forest in antiquity. With extreme pride and loyalty to Germania the Army boasts a strong morale and being one of the most advanced nations on the globe the troops have top of the line equipment and training. Sadly they are a smaller force and often cut their troops down to a token force outside of wartime. A major flaw in the Germanic Army is the continuous striving for better equipment. While not always a problem when it is it cripples the forces as some units will have little to no access to ammunition for different weapons from their sister units. This can lead to problems and even fighting over ammunition and equipment between units.

The Germanic navy boasts some of the finest ships in the world, often behemoth in size and extremely durable in construction these vessels are very fast compared to many counterparts due to the Germanic engines used. Sadly due to the expanse of German shipping in time of total war old obsolete vessels must be brought into commission to enlarge the forces. The main problem lies outside of full on naval engagements however as the many Germanic merchant and civilian flotillas require naval protection which spreads the Germanic fleets out considerably.

National Goals : Expand via territories and economy.
National Issues : weaker nations must be defeated more trade must open up.
National Figures of Interest : King Otto I, Arminius, Queen Kunigunde the Catholic, King Augustus III, King Frederick the Teuton.
National Ambition/Aspirations : Dominance of Continental Europe and massive colonies.

486 AD: A unified force of German Stem Duchies and Tribes resist Frankish incursions into Germania proper. After the Expulsion of Frankish troops a bold powerplay by one of several Germanic Chieftains gives him a large Kingdom he would Dub Germania.

Helghan, are you not taking Mauritius or Reunion island? I was told that someone else was taking those, and I would like to have them if not.

Guidance Name : Islamic Dark Age

Guidance Description : The times following the defeat of the Armies of Mohammed were dark times for the people of the crescent, but they were ultimately not the only ones to suffer, for without their pioneering spirit in the fields of Academia and the steadfast heart of Constantinople standing strong the tides of Knowledge that the upheaval the Armies of Islam would have brought proved to be decimating to the peoples of Europe. As a result of Islam being forced back, the Renaissance never occurred and European Intelligentsia stuttered and faltered falling behind the power of the Imperium Romanum. Europe remained mired in an ignorant Dark Age only eventually making progress after many years. Europe however would remain in the shadow of foreign powers and the continent would be one step behind many parts of the world.

-The Roman Tech Group is considered to be more advanced than the European Tech Group

-The European Tech Group suffers from lack of ingenuity and innovation making them slow to adapt or adopt new ideas meaning that attempts to modernize are also stifled.

Um, Italia - as a close ally of Imperium Romanum - likely wouldn't be affected by this, right?

As for everyone else, not sure if this breaks too much or not. Hope an OP or Co-OP sees this and judges it. Seems interesting otherwise.

As for everyone else, not sure if this breaks too much or not. Hope an OP or Co-OP sees this and judges it. Seems interesting otherwise.


I'm an OP, so there's that.

But if you're in the Roman tech group then you will probably have better tech.


So, then yes. I'm in the roman tech group in all likelihood, to some degree or another.

Guidance Description : The times following the defeat of the Armies of Mohammed were dark times for the people of the crescent, but they were ultimately not the only ones to suffer, for without their pioneering spirit in the fields of Academia and the steadfast heart of Constantinople standing strong the tides of Knowledge that the upheaval the Armies of Islam would have brought proved to be decimating to the peoples of Europe. As a result of Islam being forced back, the Renaissance never occurred and European Intelligentsia stuttered and faltered falling behind the power of the Imperium Romanum. Europe remained mired in an ignorant Dark Age only eventually making progress after many years. Europe however would remain in the shadow of foreign powers and the continent would be one step behind many parts of the world.

-The Roman Tech Group is considered to be more advanced than the European Tech Group

-The European Tech Group suffers from lack of ingenuity and innovation making them slow to adapt or adopt new ideas meaning that attempts to modernize are also stifled.

Affected Area : Europe



Um, Italia - as a close ally of Imperium Romanum - likely wouldn't be affected by this, right?

I'll point this out Elerian is the main co-op meaning he's in charge and I'm in charge of guidances. Given Islam got crippled and much of Europe built off of Islam's intellectual ism at the time and that coupled with the fact that Constantinople never fell means this guidance is accepted.

Roman tech group would be Trace and Brazil iks Persia and possibly Novgorod your Italy has enough separation to be European though you could try and romanise.

Yeah, but I'm apart of East-Roman influence still, plus Eastern Rome owned Southern Italy at one point according to my history, and we've been friends for a while. So while I am in Europe, I still belong to the Roman Tech Group.

Plus, the guidance kind of breaks my app too much if I'm not part of the Roman Tech Group to some degree - I at least need to be industrialized and use metals and such in my ships, I think, as well as decent rifles and the likes, similar to East-Rome.

I really hope I don't need a guidance for 1860 to 1870-level military tech, lots of which is imported or has been reverse engineered.
Depression kind of goes along with not being liked, especially when you ask for help, and don't get it. Remember that, okay? There are people who need someone, even if in a small way. Don't avoid them because of a misunderstanding, them having a bad day, and definitely not because everyone else does it. Even if it's just a fifteen minute conversation about nothing, it might help.

You'd still be industrialized even if you were in the Euro tech group, you'd just be behind the Roman tech group.

Elerian told me that guidances were more for regions than nations, so I will try ro come up with something for the nations in the Indian Ocean and the various straits, gulfs, and seas in or around it (probably something economic), but it might end up beinf something entirely different.

I'm indeed quite tempted to take Nepal back.


Like, sorry Trace, but I just might go for it. Even still, you can try to pretend Sassanid is still a thing.

You'd still be industrialized even if you were in the Euro tech group, you'd just be behind the Roman tech group.


Just feel like a Roman Imperial Italia heavily allied with East-Rome for about threeish centuries now would be in the Roman Tech Group, as putting it under the Europe Tech Group makes no sense according to that continuity and lore.

There are factors other than your alliance, Void.
