NS Parliament Life Outside [IC]

Welcome to the Parliament of Saint Hilda!

What is this?
This is a character-driven RP in which we roleplay as politicians in a fictional nation. This RP, now the NS Parliament, has origins in the former NSG Senate. We have two simple starting guidelines:

    1. We are the island nation of Saint Hilda, located in the northern Lesser Antilles near Guadeloupe.
    2. A parliamentary system of government is being established, taken from Sweden, from which we just gained independence and with which we share a monarch.
The rest is up to the players! In this RP, we will legislate and politick, ally and backstab, and so much more! It is your choice what your character will be. Prominent and outspoken? Shady and quiet? Progressive? Conservative? Fascist? Communist? Centrist? Government? Opposition? Crossbencher? Journalist? Activist? The list goes on!

As soon as you submit you application, unless rejected, you become a Member of the (imaginary) Parliament of Saint Hilda (or Sankta Hilda in Swedish). You can then feel free to begin participating in the RP. You can do things like drafting a bill, voting on bills, and joining or creating a political party.

Where does it all go on?
We have four threads. There's this one, for applications, creating/joining parties, and all OOC discussion about our RP. There's the Chamber, where bills are debated, amended and voted upon. There's the Office, where bills are presented, discussed before they reach the Chamber, and kept before and after going to the Chamber. There's Life Outside, where all RP that happens outside the Chamber (campaigning, news stories, daily life, etc) goes on. Finally, if you want to flesh out your characters, use our Character Database in Forum 7. Any other threads that may be created also go in Forum 7. Our official Discord server can be found here.

Parliament OOC/Apps
As the name suggests, for applications, bill drafting, and OOC discussion.
Parliament Chamber
For debating, voting, and amending bills. Strictly IC.
Parliament Office (Archived)
This thread has since been locked, but it contains old bill drafts.
Life Outside (You are here)
For all RP outside the Chamber, from a walk in a park to a bomb planted in a restaurant. Strictly IC.
Character Database
For cataloguing all characters, from politicians to companies to pets. Mostly IC.

Who's in charge?
Our administrators run the RP and their decisions are final.
We don't have strict rules, other than that godmodding is prohibited and our admins are fully in charge.
In the case of rule violations or unacceptable conduct, the offender will be warned. After two admin warnings within a month, disciplinary actions may escalate to a suspension or eventually a ban.

How do I get started?

The so-called "Legislative Bill 88" is a ridiculous, racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Black, anti-reason farce and I refuse to associate with any individual, party, or organisation who supports it or it's vile, scummy fuckwit of an author. This is not your country.

As Lance stepped out of the Chamber, he laughed and shook his head, closing the door behind him. What a silly way to start the fist argument in the Chamber.

He looked up at the sky, wondering what was in store for Miss Viktoria. After a moment, he turned and glanced down the street, wandering around until he found a small restraunt. He stepped in, ordered a glass of wine, and waited for a moment before it was delivered.

He took a sip, considering his colleagues. Viktoria did not take kindly to insults, sarcasm, and a little bit of fun. Seč, conversely, seemed near pacifist in his approach to politics. Easy to break, then. Robin seemed like somebody Lance could get along with, though the two hadn't discussed much.

It took a couple moments for Lance to realize he was trying to take a sip out of an empty glass. He laughed at himself.

Lance laughed at everything. He laughed at other people, he laughed at himself. He knew that positivity was the only way to keep one's mind sharp in the cold arenas of business and politics.

They were quite similar, in essence. Both were built on connections, deals, and betrayals. Yes, betrayals. Lance had long understood that betrayal was fundamental if one held ambition. One couldn't become King without killing their opponents.

Lance signed a check and left a large tip in payment, before walking outside. He sat on a park bench, staring at a small bird that fluttered about across the street.

Hello, it's Zap! If you read this it's most likely on a P2TM roleplay thread. I'm not a native English speaker (or writer for that matter), so if you notice mistakes I am happy to receive feedback. I know I'm prone to dangling modifiers, capitalization mistakes, use of commas, and other errors. If I were to use a semicolon, there's a 97% chance I just put it there because they look fancy; I have no idea how they work. If it's spelling it just means Grammarly wasn't cooperating. Thanks.

Education is the single most important thing for this island. We should use the natural beauty we have at every opportunity. Natural schooling increases self-reliance, self-esteem, communication skills, and fine/gross ability. Let's work for a school system that makes this a priority just as much learning you letters and numbers #NatureEducation
