THE IDES OF MARCH
A Commonwealth Society Roleplay

IC | Timeline of Events | The Commonwealth Society | Regional Map


“Does anybody read? By the gods, is anyone there? This is Major Artemus Karas of the Cimmerian Garrison. We’re being overrun! I repeat, we’re being overrun!”

As the sun rises on the easternmost territory of Kaarland, the dawn breaks on a new Cimmeria, one ruled by the Cimmerian Liberation Front. A violent secessionist group, the CLF launched all-out attacks on the local garrison during the past few days, and achieved complete control of the island by 0500 hours today. In the chaos, many civilians were killed, and Kaarite prisoners of war are now being executed on the streets. Shipping lanes and Kaarite merchant vessels have already come under attack by raiding forces.

As the last of the Kaarite forces are murdered in cold blood or flee to the mainland, CLF forces toast their victory, and anarchy reigns. With Cimmeria lost, all eyes are on Kaarland and Britcan, waiting for the former to act, and the latter to spur the Commonwealth Assembly into action. But, unbeknownst to the CLF, their rebellion is only the first of a series of coming events that will come to change Albionia - and indeed the entire Commonwealth - forever…

Welcome, one and all, to the first RP of our rebooted Commonwealth Society! We’d like as many of our Member States to get involved as possible, so don’t worry if you’re new to roleplaying or new to NS in general – we’d still like you to join in! No application necessary – as long as you’re in the CWS and on the map, you can join (If you’ve been accepted onto the map but I haven’t put you on yet, you’re welcome too). If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask on this thread and I or one of my faithful Co-OPs will respond!

For this RP, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with the history and governmental structure of Kaarland, as well as the IC structure of the Commonwealth Society.



How to join

This RP is for members of The Commonwealth Society only. If you are not a member of our region, you are more than welcome to join the region – please check out our Discord server for details on how to apply to the Commonwealth.

Commonwealth Member States should post a message on this thread stating that they are participating to be allowed to post in the IC thread.



Rules

1. The OP/Co-OP’s word is final.
2. No godmodding – try and be as realistic as possible while keeping artistic flair.
3. No metagaming – OOC knowledge does not transfer to your IC characters/nations.
4. Keep OOC in the OOC thread (be civil!) and vice versa.
5. No inadequate IC posts (I.E. No one liners, grammar and spelling to be at a decent standard).

"Power is a curious thing...Three great men, a king, a priest, and a rich man. Between them stands a common sellsword. Each great man bids the sellsword kill the other two. Who lives, who dies? Power resides where men believe it resides; it's a trick, a shadow on the wall, and a very small man can cast a very large shadow."

Hi - this RP is for CWS region members, but we are recruiting and you are more than welcome to apply as laid out in the OP!

Just as a warning - this is a Modern tech RP, and our region is 'detached' from RL earth. After a quick look at your nation, it seems more geared toward FT and quite integrated with the real world, so unsure if you'd be willing to change those things.

Do you mean the 'detached' part? We are not part of Earth, nor do we use a real Earth map - we have our own custom one. While some of our histories contain references to things in the real world, we are detached in that we exist largely separately in our own little bubble, our own world. You won't see any concrete links with the real world in any of our RPs - e.g. there won't be any references to what real world countries like the US might think of the situation in Cimmeria. And everyone in the region exists on our custom map. In your factbook I saw things like references to a NATO merger and whatnot after a brief look; this wouldn't be permitted in our region.

Sorry if you meant something else!

So I'm not apart of what you're apart of but I created a morale system for RPing wars and I have used in an RP I created which worked out for me and the other RPers that were apart of it but your group looks like it could use something like this for your planned RP as it looks to be about a massive war and I want to improve on the system but I don't know what it would need to improve maybe you could have your group look at it and discuss it maybe agree to use in your RP if you all like it. link to the dispatch below mostly just looking for feed back.

Hi man, generally the plan is to stay away from direct state-on-state "hot war" conflicts in our region, so I'm not sure it's too applicable to us, and generally I don't use systems like that for RP as I prefer to just write things out. After having a brief look though, it seems straightforward and simple enough. Best of luck with it.

No problem also you would still write things out but at the end of your post you would add up what you did like if you RP'd that a USO event happened then you would add the related score associated with the event but the system does take a bit of planning as all of the people involved have to agree what points are associated with what event what do you think would improve it

That makes sense, generally I prefer not having things like morale too tied down to numerical values however. If you want to discuss this further, I'd suggest starting a thread for it somewhere, as this is the OOC for an upcoming RP and I'd like to keep it fairly on-topic.
