Realism and RP - Recruitment and Application Thread

Hello and welcome to Realism and RP's recruitment thread. This thread will host general information about our region as well as applications from prospective members.

Realism and RP is a Modern Tech, Realistic, Worldbuilding region. This means that we are set in roughly the modern day, are limited to what is currently feasible technologically, and focus on fleshing out a believable, interactive world. Our nations exist on the planet Karaban, and have no connection to real life countries. This means that our languages, common currencies, religions and more are original creations. We use realistic populations, plausible economics, and reasonable politics. Rather than attempt to grind out yet another conflict RP each month, our members assist each other OOCly in developing the stories behind their nations. Our focus on realism should not be mistaken with elitism, we are more than happy to take in and work with new RPers.

Realism and RP has been on NS for three years and is composed of a motley crew of individuals. We have a diverse array of members, hailing from nations such as Poland, the UK, Sweden, Mexico, and the United States. Realism and RP also boasts a healthy line-art community, though this is by no means a requirement for entry. We hang out on a regional Discord channel as well as our RMB, where we plan RP's, collaborate on projects, and develop a unified lore. Additionally our region has hosted off-site DnD campaigns and organizes matches of games such as L4D2, Wargame: Red Dragon, and ARMA 3.

Your application to Realism and RP should include:

  • An RP sample.
  • A rough map of which land you are interested in claiming.
  • A basic idea for your nation, including government type, resemblance to real world cultures, and population estimate. An IIwiki or Factbook link would be immensely helpful in this area.

This is the bare minimum required, you should include as much as you can.

Here is an example of a good application:

Full Nation Name: The Republic of Korva
Demonym: Korvan
Population: 37 million
Government Type: Parliamentary Republic.
RP Sample: viewtopic.php?p=26355328
Factbook Link: Here
Map: Here
12345


Please note that usage of a factbook or wiki can save you quite a bit of typing. That said, you are welcome to join even if you do not entirely know in which direction you wish to take your nation. Just hop on our Discord and chat with whoever is there.

You will be notified of acceptance or denial via a post in this thread within 48 hours of your application.

To make sure we can find your application, please put '12345' at the end.

I want to rp a small nation, with little to no military. Like a spanish Luxemburg B)! My citizens will speak language similiar to Spanish, maybe one of the variants. Haven't decided on religion yet.

I'd be very happy to join your ranks!

Hey, I am glad to see that you are interested in our region.

My primary concerns with your nation are that 1) you have no factbook and 2) no demonstrable RP experience. Normally that might be dispositive but given that you are making such a minor claim (both in size and influence) I think you should be ok. You will definitely want to work on your nation should you join us.

I will give some time for my regionmates to post their opinion but personally I am in favor of having you join the region.

Thanks a lot :D You too, Galmarch!

Hello, I am happy that you are interested in the region but it seems that you are confused as to what this region is about. Your map shows a claim on Earth, which does not exist in our region. Please see the "Region Map" link under Regional Resources.

If you are still interested in this region you will have to figure out a new claim to make. Can you please link to your old nation as well?

I would like to apply, and I have many past nations as RP proof. However, I would publicly like to be a clean slate, and would rather TG links to OP. Is that OK? (I've never been banned/suspended ;) )

Hello, your factbooks and information are a bit sparse, you should hop on Discord so we can give you some input.

Hello, your application looks fine. There are minor details in your factbook not really worth quibbling over, if you join us on Discord we can hash them out. I am in favor of you joining but I will give my regionmates some time to give their input.

Hello, I have looked at your TG and everything seems fine.

When you say your gameside nation reflects your RP nation, you just mean along policy lines, correct? We do not use NS stats of any kind as they quickly become absurd.

The map is not covered in glaciers, the white areas are simply regions that have not been claimed. Any colored in region without a number attached to it was land that was once claimed but the nation has left/been deleted/etc. The area you have claimed is massive (if you look at the scale 1 pixel : 10 km) and frankly rather far from the "center of gravity". My concern would be that in my experience nations that claim far from everyone else tend to wither from lack of activity.

Otherwise I am in favor of you joining but will give some time for anyone else in the region to comment.

I second my good friend's doubt about your choice of land, but everything else sounds alright. When you join we can discuss that.

Can I boost my population to 130 million and inhabit that area west of the Emeraude, then?

And yes, the gameside just reflects the policy lines of a corporate bordello.
