NSG Senate Daily Life: Gal I Hear Ya

Postby NSG Senate Administrators » Sun Feb 11, 2018 3:34 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 Politically Dynamic nation of Galatea, 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 Zurkerx and co-admins Maklohi Vai, Merizoc, and Electrum; our roleplay has existed in several iterations for the past several 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 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, is 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. The fourth is the National Database, where you create a profile for your in-game characters, places, or organizations and where you'll be bombarded with questions ranging from where you stand on the issues to your pet cat's name. And last but not least, Daily Life in Galatea and the thread you are currently in, 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.

OOC: I strongly disagree with this. The twitter posts can be used to great effect in terms of roleplaying a realistic politician, and in terms of interacting with other players in the Senate, which we desperately need more of. There are a lot of people (me among them), who are happy to use a forum-side simulation of social media but don't want to take roleplaying offsite to actual twitter for any number of reasons. Nonetheless, I've made a separate, unofficial thread for Twitter posts to continue on here.
