NSG Senate House of Representatives: Shutdown Dilemma

Postby NSG Senate Administrators » Sun Feb 11, 2018 3:35 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 Political 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, Electrum and The Miaphysite Church of Coptic Archism; 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 and the thread you are currently in, 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, 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.

Senator Niccolo Fallaci walks into the chamber with a smile and a box of pizza. He sits down in the crossbenches, saving a spot for Senators Michelakos (Van Hool Islands), Arrighetti (Dormill and Stiura), (Hakons), (Jutsa), and (The Sarian).

Lilika Samaras walks down the corridor smiling widely as she admires the architecture of the building. As she enters the chamber proper, she locates her seat among the other Alliance senators and greets them warmly. After she sits down, she pulls a ziploc bag of trail mix out of her pocket, forgoing the tempting but unhealthy pizza in the FDP seats.
