Nationstates Name: Camelone

Faction Name: Kingdom of Niagara, Heir of Rome
Faction Type: Kingdom
Flag (Optional):

Governing Ideology: Senatorial Feudalism
Leader(s): King Edward Alfredson Roma
Territorial Claims: Niagara and Orleans County, New York
Population: 5,500
Armed Population: The Great Cohort, 770 soldiers organized into 7 Centuries
Technology Level: High Metal Age

History: The early days of the Kingdom of Niagara comes not from the region itself but instead stems down south in what was once Pennsylvania. There, born to a man and wife of great learning, was the illustrious founder of the kingdom to be born and raised in the old Free Hold of Clinton to grow and learn the art of literacy, faith, law, and engineering. It is said Alfred the Indomitable surpassed all his peers in matters of intellect and nothing but the frailty of his youthful body kept him back, yet Providence was with young Alfred for one day he found his weak lungs filled with air and his heart full of energy to his delight. With health restored the young Alfred accompanied the other young men through their initiation process of scavenging the old ruins for anything of value. After almost a year of searching Alfred grew frustrated and struck out on his own going to the ruins Pittsburgh despite the dangers in the search for something which would propel him to the heights of popularity and allow him to undertake a cushy and comfortable future of law and order. At first things did not go well, Alfred nearly died several times but eventually he made his way to an abandoned technology company, sneaking in he found what he had been searching for an exo-skeleton. With this in hand, equipped with the necessary materials Alfred knew he would become presider over his community in no time.

Leaving the city turned out to be more difficult than entering and again Alfred found himself in danger, deciding to take shelter in an old museum he happened across the old exhibits of Rome throughout its history. Alfred had always been intrigued by this history, he heard about it every now and then back home but never truly envisaged the glory of it until he saw those paintings, sculptures, and exhibits so much so that he took the clothing off of several of the mannequins as his own. His mind filled with thoughts of glory and imperium he turned his back on the thoughts of going home instead diving deeper into the books until he states that he saw a vision from God to go north and establish his kingdom along the mighty falls. That was when Alfred left the ruins of Pittsburgh as Alfred Roma the landless king, 2111 AD.

Through his travels north Alfred created a small following behind him, the King of Metal, with rumors of his strength, intellect, and charisma drawing a small army around him. It was with this army, the 1st Century, that he subdued Niagara with in 2120 AD and had himself crowned King Alfred Indomitable Roma with his reign established he set about writing a law code, a system of government, restructuring the Christian pastors into a hierarchy with himself as the High Presider and stamping out heresy, and organizing what would become the Great Cohort and the Licensing Colleges. The reign of King Alfred Indomitable was a Golden Age for Niagara with the rebirth of formalized education, both in regards to the Church Schools and the founding of the Royal Niagara Academy and Library, and the security of a strong military force and the rule of law. By 2156 AD the Kingdom of Niagara was a flourishing realm with a functioning court system, economy, military, and educational apparatus but alas it was also the year King Alfred breathed his last. It is said at the same moment King Alfred breathed his last his fabled suit of armor would move no more, now taking residence in the relic room of the royal palace.

The reign of King Moses Alfredson Roma was one of maintenance, he continued as both King and High Presider of the Niagara Church the policies of his father. From 2156 AD to his death in 2184 AD King Moses expanded the realm and the size of the Great Cohort, incorporating what was known as Orleans County into the kingdom. His was a conservative and steady reign, continued patronage to the Church and education as well as keeping a tight leash on the Licensing Colleges he also continued his fathers policy of sending scouts throughout the ruins of libraries, schools, and university's to collect any information they could gather and send it to the Royal Academy for its copying and archiving.

From 2184 AD to 2201 AD the reign of King Eric Alfredson Roma was one of reform and internal development he relinquished control of High Presider back to the clergymen but retained the right as King to settle matters of organizational dispute and call Grand Synods. An additional reform was the establishment of the Assembly of Sheriffs as a lower house to the Senate and the granting of seats on the Senate to the Licensing Colleges ruffling the feathers of the landed gentry, which was smoothed over by an expansion of the Great Cohort and investment into new weaponry such as a standardized black powder musket.

King Edward Alfredson Roma is the most recent of the Roma dynasty and he has great dreams for the Kingdom of Niagara, he sees himself as the great agent of the Prophecy of Alfred. By his hand shall Niagara become a glorious kingdom, a realm of law, prosperity, justice, learning, and most of all strength. King Edward knows that aggression is needed and from early in his reign has he been wining and dining the Senators and College Masters, influential Sheriffs and Presiders, to be granted the funds and support necessary for great expansion. He has secured the loyalty of the Great Cohort by promises of his land and the Church with the prospect of new believers. The Kingdom of Niagara will march onward till wherever the banners fly people will know the might of the folk of Alfred.

Culture: Niagara's culture derives much from quasi-Roman influences due to Alfred's influence and the imposition of this culture upon the people of Niagara, though beyond that it is mostly an agrarian culture with a strong combination of quasi-Romanism, Christianity, and upstate survivalism. Education, skill, endurance, and piety/virtue are the four main pillars of Niagara thought and it is believed that the citizen and realm are woven together so if the citizen lacks it so to will the realm. This has propelled the propagation of learning, militia training, and religious revivalism throughout the kingdom for if even one pillar is weakened then the entire realm can crumble and no citizen can allow that to happen.

This leads directly to the class structure of Niagara at the top sits the King and his family, then is the Senators who are large landowners or wealthy families and/or prominent military families though just because one is from a Senatorial family does not guarantee ones placement on the Senate, underneath them are the Yeomen who are small self-sufficient farmers or high ranking members of the Licensing Colleges as there is a great degree of mobility between the Citizens and the Yeomen. It is generally from the Yeomen that Sheriffs are elected by the Citizens who are the lowest of the recognized orders. Freemen are unrecognized foreigners or conquered people and can not apply for membership into the Licensing Colleges or take a clan or branch name.

Naming conventions in Niagara follow loosely the old Roman style of a personal name, a tribe or clan name, and a branch name generally the tribe or clan name would take the name or title+name of a distinguished person in their family's history. Women take the man's name unless specified otherwise which has happened but is generally an exception and not the rule.

The Licensing Colleges are organizations of craftsmen who quality control their respective crafts, currently these include Metalworking, Carpentry, Law, Medicine, Engineering, and Bookmakers. There are subdivisions within the Licensing Colleges and it is not unheard of for some masters of a College to have mastery in a few of the subdivisions and lower levels in the remaining. They hold substantial economic power but their creation and authority extend directly from the throne, without which they would hold no official powers. This is what separates a Licensing College from a Craft Company.

The Church of Niagara is very orthodox and dogmatic Church, since its formalization in 2123 AD the three Creeds and a codified Prayer Book has been established along with the Niagara Confession. Worship wise it focuses on Holy Communion every Sunday with revival and prayer meetings every day of the week, Sunday's hold a very reserved and subdued atmosphere while every other service is filled with energy and excitement with itinerant and circuit preachers talking about the Word of God, the true official canon which has been unchanged since the Collapse. Organizationally the Church has the laity, then the elders who act as deacons and caretakers of the church and community, then pastors who administer the Sacraments and preach, above them is the preacher who is given free reign to roam wherever they wish to preach, and finally is the presiders who oversee a geographical area and administrate it by Sacraments, preaching, and administration. The High Presider is the first among equals and the head of the Church of Niagara. The Church runs all of the schools, minus the Royal Academy, and is the center of community life and community welfare.

Nationstates Name: Tayner

Faction Name: The Realm of North Texas
Faction Type: Kingdom
Flag (Optional): Visual Aid
Governing Ideology: Royalist
Leader(s): King Blake Brownel
Territorial Claims: Sherman and Dallum counties, TX
Population: 6,000
Armed Population: 1,000
100 Knights
100 Guards (Standing Military)
100 Light Cavalry
300 Archers (Levy)
400 Levy
Technology Level: Metal Age

History: In Dallum county, TX, there were a few families of Aristocratic standing that rose to power through holding land. After some times of loosing technology, they would use their power to rebuild into a metal stage society, building castles and forts as they expanded. A hundred years ago, the Brownel family rose to power through cleverly marrying into the leading family and exploiting the line of succession. This marks the rise of the Realm of Northern Texas as we know.

Henry Brownel would raise an army of 500 men, and conquer Sherman County, home to brigands who often raised trouble for the Realm. After annexing the lands after breaking the raider presence, Henry would focus on securing his family's future by having many children. However, when he would die, this would backfire as each of his children would want to become the head of the Realm. Following this, a brief fight would break out between each of the children and their allies, however one would survive, the youngest, Blake.

Blake secured the loyalty of the Knights of the Realm, and while under their protection, would detain and exicute each of his relatives for betraying him. Blake would consolidate his power within the Realm, securing loyalties where he could and destroying those who he would suspect would betray him. He would raise a large military, and prepare to expand his kingdom much like his father did before, wanting to continue on the family legacy of bringing honor to the Realm and expanding it.
Culture: Northern Texas's real draws much of it's culture from the southern culture of old. Their flag draws homage to their home state, however the new color pallet shows how something new was born out of the collapse. They also hold a sense of rugged individualism despite the fact they usually depend on their community when struggling.

Their socal structure is hierarchical, with the Royal Family on top, followed by affluent nobles and then common citizens. There is no slave caste, as slavery is outlawed and seen as a barbaric practice reserved for raiders and bandits. Common citizens who are active military are held in higher social standing than common citizens, and Nobles often serve as officers, with active soldiers filling in the NCO roles.

Flag (Optional):
Governing Ideology: Royalist
Leader(s): King Arthur II Konnig (ruled: 2200 AD - Present)
Territorial Claims: Albany (capital), Schoharie, Renssenlauer, Columbia, Greene, NY)
Population: 10,000
Armed Population: 3,000
Technology Level: Post Collapse

History: Sometime during the Collapse, Adrian Konigg, Governor of New York declared Independence from the United States of America, and proclaimed the Republic of New York (2025 AD - 2047 AD). He managed to win all of New York to his side, save New York City itself. The newly proclaimed President Adrian Konigg (ruled: 2025 AD - 2043 AD) sent his National Guard up against New York City, however, they were defeated by the inhabitants of the Big Apple, at the Battle of Yonkers (2027 AD). After this, a ceasefire was agreed, because President Konigg had to send his forces North, to defend against a massive incursion of Canadians fleeing across the border into the newly founded Republic of New York. Unable to stem the tide, President Konigg agreed to allow the Canadian refugees to settle in the north of the State. President Adrian Konigg ruled until his death, in 2043, at the age of 79.

In 2043, with the President’s death, a National Election was called, and Adrian’s son and former Vice President, Alexander Konigg was elected President (ruled: 2043 AD - 2047 AD, 2048 AD - 2085 AD). In the 4th year of his term, the National Assembly (the former State Assembly) demanded that Alexander stand for Election, and allow an opponent to run. President Alexander has the Assembly members arrested and declared that he would rule for life like his father. This led to uprisings throughout the Republic, with the exception of the capital at Albany and some of the surrounding counties. The rebels attempted to besiege Albany, however, they were defeated by those forces loyal to Alexander. After this victory, on Christmas Day, 2047, Alexander declared the abolition of the Republic and proclaimed himself King of New York. The Throne has passed through several generations down to the current Monarch, King Arthur II Konigg.



Culture: The majority of of New Yorkers are old stock Americans, of predominantly Anglo and Dutch stock, over the centuries, they have come to develop a strong belief in their Kingdom as being “chosen of God”, and referred to their King as “God’s Anointed”.

Nationstates Name:

Faction Name: City of Charleston

Faction Type: Survivor Enclave

Flag (Optional):
Image


Governing Ideology: City State Democracy

Leader(s): The Governing Council-The The city has twelve districts similar to the far off days, but for obvious reasons, the old territorial boundaries have long been reshaped to fit the new Charleston. Each district gets one representative, and amongst them, a council is formed to deal with political matters. The title of mayor is granted honorifically in an election amongst candidates provided in an annual gathering where the cities residents divide into groups of yay or nay. The current mayor is the ironhanded Boss Albert who controls the casino ships out of the port district.

Territorial Core: City of Charleston (Charleston County, South Carolina)

Territorial Claims: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Carolina_Lowcountry

Population: 1,000.

Armed Population: 200.

Technology Level: Metal Age/Post-Collapse.

History: Formed long ago in the far off days the city of Charleston is old, and perhaps even older than most people can recount, but the plague that struck the world centuries ago struck just as hard here killing many in the city if one is to go by the old preserved papers of the museum. The age of atomic fire spared the city but did strike the former state capital causing radiation for a time to blow downwind killing even more countless numbers of people. Eventually, the civilization of the old world collapsed, but those times were long ago, and just as Charleston survived plagues, wars, and civilizational collapse before a portion of it did again. What started off as an area identity of a dozen communities within the civilized part of Charleston over a century, and a half ago united together into an official city government.

The first governing council chosen by a random drawing of twelve people transformed the twelve miniature cities of charleston into twelve districts of one city. An election occurs each year, and any citizen of charleston is free to participate. The new city had its triumphs such as campaigns to eradicate and drive off bandits, but it also had its tragedies as well. The Hurricane of 2160 killed 400 people, and caused much of the city to go underwater, and when it finally did dry up the survivors though demoralized set up working on walling off the parts of the city that were best suited for staying above the water turning the city into an island. The population since then has finally started to recover to about 1,000 with some beginning to wonder if the idyllic island enclave of the south should look to expand into something greater. Some even dream of not just expanding over what folks from the old legends detail as the Lowcountry, but reforming the "state" of South Carolina as well.

Culture: The island city of Charleston is a place of many superstitions, and traditions. Within the Holy City an entirely new religion would be born from a mixture of the faiths present there.

How would raiding/make a vassal of NPC survivor enclaves work? I suppose I post my raid/attack/whatever and then you determine its effectiveness? Also, the neutral land. Are there any people there? Perhaps travelers, traders, etc. Or is it completely empty?

Might just be random settlements of insignificance outside of traders, farmers, hunters, and the like. Kind of like how in New Vegas or Fallout 4 you have patches of civilization mixed with raider/monster hell alongside more peaceful areas where a family or two live. Given the issues, this world faces my guess is people aim to congregate not just because they want to, but simply because of safety in numbers.

Neutral land is basically dead land with maybe a single family or so dotted far apart from one another. Might be a few caravans or wanderers. Occupied holds are generally the same but with a much higher population density, and much less sparse.

I like the idea.

I suppose I could craft up a character app for the people who don't want to run a faction.

Nationstates Name:

Faction Name: City of Charleston

Faction Type: Survivor Enclave

Flag (Optional):

Governing Ideology: City State Democracy

Leader(s): The Governing Council-The The city has twelve districts similar to the far off days, but for obvious reasons, the old territorial boundaries have long been reshaped to fit the new Charleston. Each district gets one representative, and amongst them, a council is formed to deal with political matters. The title of mayor is granted honorifically in an election amongst candidates provided in an annual gathering where the cities residents divide into groups of yay or nay. The current mayor is the ironhanded Boss Albert who controls the casino ships out of the port district.

Territorial Core: City of Charleston (Charleston County, South Carolina)

Territorial Claims: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Carolina_Lowcountry

Population: 1,000.

Armed Population: 200.

Technology Level: Metal Age/Post-Collapse.

History: Formed long ago in the far off days the city of Charleston is old, and perhaps even older than most people can recount, but the plague that struck the world centuries ago struck just as hard here killing many in the city if one is to go by the old preserved papers of the museum. The age of atomic fire spared the city but did strike the former state capital causing radiation for a time to blow downwind killing even more countless numbers of people. Eventually, the civilization of the old world collapsed, but those times were long ago, and just as Charleston survived plagues, wars, and civilizational collapse before a portion of it did again. What started off as an area identity of a dozen communities within the civilized part of Charleston over a century, and a half ago united together into an official city government.

The first governing council chosen by a random drawing of twelve people transformed the twelve miniature cities of charleston into twelve districts of one city. An election occurs each year, and any citizen of charleston is free to participate. The new city had its triumphs such as campaigns to eradicate and drive off bandits, but it also had its tragedies as well. The Hurricane of 2160 killed 400 people, and caused much of the city to go underwater, and when it finally did dry up the survivors though demoralized set up working on walling off the parts of the city that were best suited for staying above the water turning the city into an island. The population since then has finally started to recover to about 1,000 with some beginning to wonder if the idyllic island enclave of the south should look to expand into something greater. Some even dream of not just expanding over what folks from the old legends detail as the Lowcountry, but reforming the "state" of South Carolina as well.

Culture: The island city of Charleston is a place of many superstitions, and traditions. Within the Holy City an entirely new religion would be born from a mixture of the faiths present there.

Several days up the river, New England was looking a little too crowded for my liking.

Edit: Speaking of, would you like an envoy?

Could be interesting. Lemoyne may be fearful of outsiders but I would suppose that there has been trade in the past so you'd be outsiders but not them gosh darn yankees. I'd offer one in return but not sure if my little band of tribals are quite up to sending diplomats just as of yet.

I hope you don't mind me being cut from the same cloth, as in from the same migration of Louisianan Voodooists. Though we probably have very different goals in mind.

Right now, I'll give you guys a ring as soon as I figure out what's in the Free Hold and if the banditos would bend the knee, then I'll mosey down the Black Warrior to Mobile Bay.

If you support capitalism, put this in your signature.
You can be a Christian and LGBTQ+ at the same time!

People interpret the Scripture differently. Therefore, it makes sense for a group to uphold the principle, that God accepts everyone regardless of their preferrence - as long as they acceptes His grace and salvation.

Remember:
"God promises to make something good out of the storms that bring devastation to your life."
Romans 2:18

Yes, I failed miserably in Physics, and spectacularly in Mathemathics.
