Point of Divergence V 5.0 : It's Alive! (OOC / OPEN)

Postby Speyland » Mon Jul 05, 2021 5:04 pm

Point of Divergence V 5.0 : It's Alive!
An alternate history ISOT RP by Speyland (validated by Democratic East-Asia!)

“If there’s a zeppelin, it’s alternate history. If there’s a rocketship, it’s science fiction. If there are swords and/or horses, it’s fantasy. A book with swords and horses in it can be turned into science fiction by adding a rocketship to the mix. If a book has a rocketship in it, the only thing that can turn it back into fantasy is the Holy Grail.”
-Debra Doyle

So what is this?


Greetings comrades! This, my friends, is a reboot of the old "Point of Divergence" RP. The fifth time, actually. It utilizes the concept of ISOT (a common alternative history term taken from Stirling's Island In the Sea of Time trilogy) to make a nation RP that should produce interesting results, and operates somewhat like a sandbox. Anyhow, what might the term ISOT mean?

alternatehistory.com wrote:Essentially, an ISOT involves taking a large area of land, say an island or a country, and sending it back or forward in time to another era. This usually also results in the land from that time being sent back to 'now' to replace that country, but this is not necessarily part of the definition.

For example, a scenario with the premise of “2006 Germany ISOTed to 1942” would mean that the territory of 2006 Germany replaces that of 1942 Germany. This would serve as a set up for a story, where the ISOTed 2006 Germany and the rest of the 1942-Earth have to react to this strange event and to each other's presence. Coping with the ensuing culture shock and various differences would also be a major issue, especially early on in the story. Incidentally, this kind of “coping with the aftermath of an ISOT” is a very common theme (or trope) in works that use it.


Often, there are many ramifications associated with the concept of the ISOT (as stated above), something this RP will seek to explore. The world we'll be RPing will be a diverse one, one not confined by the mere boundaries of complete realism and factual truth. There will be variety, and it will (in many cases), be rather "out of earth".



It's quite simple: nations and organizations from all over the multiverse (fictional franchises, personal fiction, alternate history, etc) are teleported to a version of Earth completely bare of sentient life (note, all weather patterns and plant life still exist, as do geographic features), a "Virgin Earth". The RP that follows focusses on the post-teleport (from now on, we shall call this "The Event") situation of the planet, and what happens in a world where everything seems different from how the various nations once saw it.

I've been on this insane train before, and I do believe it can succeed if implemented properly. For those interested, hop on board and prepare for a ride of your life! Forwards to a brave new world we go!


The Event

"I have no clue what's going, but we've lost contact with the rest of the world!!" -Anonymous individual

"So you’re telling me there’s no way to get home, Mister Lasky?" -Captain Matthew Yelland of the USS Nimitz , The Final Countdown


Hitler rants about the situation


It might've been a hot, sunny day for some, and it might've been a cold, snowy day for others. However, none of that mattered in the end, as the event spared no one. Across many worlds within the greater multiverse, The Event happened. Whether it took seconds or minutes; whether it was a flash of light, or a sudden darkness, when the Event was over, societies and organizations from all over existence found themselves on a new world, one spared from the excesses of civilization, conflict, and strife. It was an empty world, one where no soul had ever stepped a foot upon. What the future has in store is yet to be known, but it will certainly be anything but static...

Things to know about the New Earth:
- All claimed lands have nothing changed to them (resources, ecological health, etc)
- All water sources around the planet are now clean / returned to their pre-human settlement state
- Resources in unclaimed regions have returned to pre-human settlement levels (they've been replenished)




Rules, Regulations, and some Basic Information

  • Follow the given rules. I am willing to take criticism and make certain exceptions in some cases, but don't count on it.
  • OP's word is final. If OP is not available, defer to CO-OPs.
  • No god-modding / meta-gaming. While the concept of balance within this RP may be questionable, please consult with players if you plan on doing anything that will affect them to a large extent.
  • As state above, be realistic in your actions. 1940s propeller planes won't do well against modern jets.
  • 3 strikes and you're out. I won't tolerate flaming or trolling of any kind here. Each time you're accused of doing so, you'll get one strike and a warning to stop.
  • A minimum requirement of 1 paragraph posts for anyone. We want to maintain some level of in depth content.
  • Keep WMD use (against other players) to a minimum, unless common consensus can be made. WE'RE going to avoid any world ending apocalypse. Also, nukes with the potential to destroy a city are not allowed.
  • Realism, what's that? Depending on your play style, your nation could be totally realistic or rather fantastical. All up to you, just nothing that's blatantly OP. Dieselpunk, steampunk, (other punk categories), alternative history, fiction (sci-fi, fantasy, etc) are all possibilities when creating / selecting (if you're taking RL ones) a nation / organization.
  • HOWEVER, remember that your actions should be realistic within the scope of the setting, and actions have consequences. Example: don't declare war on people expecting that nobody else will care.
  • There is no "victory": the goal of this RP isn't to wank off and win every single confrontation as your "favorite" faction. We're trying to create a story / scenario where things can develop.
  • Warhammer 40k and anything on that level is banned.

**NOTES:
-We are trying to limit the number of overly advanced factions (I'm looking at you, future tech states). IF someone does choose to do a nation / organization of the type, please keep it low key and small.
-Magic will be allowed (for those nations and groups that it applies to), so long as it isn't absurdly powerful.
-Your nation doesn't necessarily need to be from Earth, it simply needs to be able to fit on Earth, although nations originating from Earth-like worlds / Earth itself are preferable.

-Yes, you can be alien space bugs if you want (just tone it down).
-Yes, you can be some anime-esque nation of the sorts.
-Yes, you can be an insane atom-punk totalist dictatorship.
-Yes, you can be robo-stalin leading some red-alert USSR.
-Or you could just be a totally normal nation, up to you.
-You get the point.

-IMPORTANT - Organizations with no set location (companies, pirates, mercenaries, etc) can choose where to spawn / teleport to initially (if within another player's borders, permission is required). Most assets (buildings, infrastructure, etc) will come along.

-Nations DO NOT need to have their entire landmass ISOT-ed. You could honestly do some sort of rump state if you really wanted (ex: out of the USA, only the western states come along)

Things to keep in mind:

1. I apologize for the images on the OP being absent. They weren't working, and I was trying to figure out another way to make them appear, but nothing came to fruition, unfortunately, so I have to go without them. It may not be fancy to you guys, but it will do for now.
2. Since Democratic East-Asia seems to retire from RPing on NationStates, I'll be taking over his place for this reboot and that he validated it upon granting permission.
3. I'm new to operating OPs. I tend to mess things up, and I tend to be naïve sometimes. If what I'm doing is wrong, please let me know, and I'll correct it. I hope things go well for you guys and me as well.
4. I won't be as active as I usually do. For that reason, I need a secondary moderator to take my place while I'm away, so it's currently for hire. Let me know on the DM if you're interested.

Well, that should be everything.

Another things to keep in mind:

1. As usual, claims are relevant for one week!
2. You will have four days for initial claimants, so apps must be filled!
3. Those who have talked to the moderation team regarding personal matters will be given two-day extensions max.

Other than that, I hope to see you there and have fun! The legacy will recommence!

well i disagree with ms d.d.'s definition. real science fiction is fiction ABOUT science. doesn't matter a drizzling bit if its rural or urban, past, present or future.
if its not about science, and it can be the 'soft' sciences as well as the hard, it can have all the techno eye candy it wants, and still be fantasy. not high fantasy perhaps, that's the provence to tolkin, the s.c.a. and unicorns and dragons. good fantasy is consistent with itself too.

at any rate, isot CAN be science fiction, and a lot of it HAS been done in that genre, it just has to be about the science, people believably doing it, the social implications of the results of their doing so, and so on. it may not even have to seem all sciencey, but for me the most fun is when it is.

sending self regenerating nanites back through time could create all sorts of wonderful fun chaos. actually hadn't heard the term "isot". been years since i've had much of a chance to keep up. after all that, i'm probably not smart enough to do the real sciencey stuff, even things like social psycology.


Full Organization Name :furry liberation front
Type of Organization : primarily social support but also seeks equality for genetically altered sapient people, crispr'd humans, actual e.t.'s, and sapient terrestrial species, whatever their origin.
Flag / Symbols: the raised furry paw of course

Official Economic Ideology : not tied to any one economic ideology, but generally supportive more of social sharing then economic exploitation.
Official Political Ideology : again really none as such, but typical of indigenous cultures
Head of Organization : a council of nine member elected annually
Other Important Individuals :

Territory : not seeking to control territory, but recognition of civil and social rights
Territorial Ambitions : obviously not applicable
Capital City : originated among college students, more or less simultaneously, on campuses in widely scattered countries around the world
Population :
Membership : this is a slight mystery as there is no official registry, generally low balled by media, and of course probably somewhat exaggerated by political opponents.

Economic Policy :

Tech Level: as popularity of science and fiction about science began to fade after its huge rise in the 1980s. Furry fandom became somewhat of the next wave to replace it. Little known even among furrys were controversial developments taking place in fields of genetic manipulation along about the same time. Also, converging were several species from different worlds, of 'alien' observers of human social evolution, disguised as 'simple animals' such as red pandas, limurs, and a number of others.
Extra Information / Quirks: well yes of course.
Universe of Origin (if any): a bit of both of course. Crispr is real, furry fandom is real, 'aliens among us' is of course a bit speculative.

Military Description pretty much pacifistic, only rarely participating in civil disobedience, usually in the company and support of other civil and social rights organizations, and those of a mostly pasivistic nature as well.


Organization Goals :to pressure governments to enact legislation protecting rights, but also less overtly, to make real genetic options available to the furry fandom.


History : little is known about the earliest meetings between human geneticists and our clandestine extra terrestrial watchers. Tails of those first meetings have become among college students something of a popular urban legend. It began when a red panda, aluris fulgens, was about to be surgically altered for experimental purposes, to which she objected in not uncertain terms, in clear, unambiguous american english.

This began something of an ethical delema for u.c.berkely's biology department, itself no stranger to ethical delemas.

All of which was very much before my own time, and before the post ecopocalyptic times in which I and my peers were born. Born with green fur, pointy ears, retractable claws, et al, though of mostly earth human ancestral stock.

How this came to be, is as a result of ecopocalyps, un-genetically altered “pure” human infants no longer lived more the a few months, if even more then a few weeks or days, from birth, and their genetically unaltered human parents were dying nearly as fast.

Some infants though, were starting to be born already 'furry', and those had the best chances to survive.

Reactions to this were of course mixed, with those of strong religious beliefs sometimes having the most difficulty. But not always. And religious diversity beyond that aramaic core becoming increasingly popular. Several new movements emergent there too.

New forms of sapience weren't the only thing to emerge from this era, as other things, such as cities, super highways and large populations, where being largely left behind. With a more rural and self sufficient popular culture, rising from its urban ruins.

(yah I know, some of this doesn't make sense as in why would there need to be a liberation front if everyone were already furry. Well it up to everyone and game master how and where what parts might or might not, if any, fit in. such at any rate is the general ideas I have in my head. Not even sure how much i'll be able to participate, I just like to share such concepts and ideas that are maybe a little less of what seems to be currently mainstream)

Rupudska is right. All apps will remain pending for the time being until we finalize which map we're going to use for this RP. We're sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for being patient with us.

The Point of Divergence series have traditionally accepted a range of technology levels or even different technology types (so you can, if you desire, use steampunk/diesel punk aesthetics instead of real industrial-era technology). Since the concept involves pulling countries/factions from different settings, the countries/factions having the technologies (and technology-equivalents, like magic) of their respective settings is expected.

However, do be aware that I as the Co-OP will have a higher standard when evaluating applications for postmodern-tech or future-tech factions and that countries that are both very advanced and very large are unlikely to be accepted.

The Point of Divergence series have traditionally accepted a range of technology levels or even different technology types (so you can, if you desire, use steampunk/diesel punk aesthetics instead of real industrial-era technology). Since the concept involves pulling countries/factions from different settings, the countries/factions having the technologies (and technology-equivalents, like magic) of their respective settings is expected.

However, do be aware that I as the Co-OP will have a higher standard when evaluating applications for postmodern-tech or future-tech factions and that countries that are both very advanced and very large are unlikely to be accepted.

I appreciate your information. By the way, I misspelled your name on the OP, so I fixed it.

Okay, so after some thinking, I've decided that the Earth map shall be kept for the RP and not the Cretaceous one. The Cretaceous map will be saved for the sixth reboot in the future. Apps will now be accepted.
