Welcome to the World That Might Be...






╔═══════════════╗
Introductions
╚═══════════════╝



You're an old soul in a new world. You are given no explanation - no cause of knowing how you arrived here - nor reason for being here. You don't know where or when you have landed. You are alone, you are naked, and no one is looking for you. You have come just in time to witness the end of humanity's blank slate: the time before history and civilization. Man is finally beginning to understand his real power, and will soon understand his place in the world. You, are the product his quest for knowledge and mastery over the Earth. You have seen the culmination of 5,000 years of labor, before miraculously being sent back to the beginning of it all. No reason was given to you for arriving here, so you must make the reason! Why were you sent to the beginning of time? How did you shape our journey? The history books are blank once again, and you - you shall be the Author!

»»————-  ————-««

Welcome to New Civilizations! A writing project, which sends you, either your literal self, or a person very like yourself, back five thousand years into the past - the dawn of history, and civilization. There is no explanation of how you arrived, or even why you are here. Not only has the world changed around you, but you have changed as well. From the day you arrive in the past, forever onward, you will not age. You've become a timeless immortal! What is more, you are able to, unconsciously and instinctively, understand and speak every language you come into contact with; your body has become immune to receiving or transmuting disease - though you are still able to be killed by other unnatural means. Sent to the past, as a timeless and near-immortal, you are free to shape history and mankind's journey over the millennia as you see fit - restrained only by your reason, your means, and the will of other Authors. Typically though, you are expected to fashion some kind of civilization or culture - this is an ultimate sandbox game. New Civilizations is one of the oldest and most successful Role Play games in the history of NationStates.net, with the very first iteration having been made all the way back in 2016! In joining our ranks as a fellow Author of mankind's new history, you shall count yourself among some of the most accomplished and imaginative members of the role playing community! We're always open, to new and old players alike!




╔═══════════════╗
Rules and Expectations
╚═══════════════╝


1.General NS rules
2. You may not post your author profile to the author list until you have been accepted by the Opening Poster, G-Tech Corporation, or Saxony-Brandenburg, his Co-Op.
3. Your Author should not be someone who just happens to be perfectly suited for the time period. You can't be an expert in metallurgy, blacksmithing, masonry, and carpentry. Your Author should be an otherwise normal person with normal skills. It is preferred that your Author resemble you as much as possible (be yourself if you want), though exceptions will be made if deemed reasonable.
4. The people of the year 2,950 B.C., are not stupid - or even that ignorant. They are, in their own way, usually just as logical and reasonable as you are now - you crafting some bronze and making a shovel isn't going to make people think you are a god. What is more, these people aren't going to make you chief of their village simply because you killed the old chief in a fight. That'd be unreasonable today, it'd be unreasonable then. Treat the ancient humans like they were actual human beings with fully functioning brains.
5. You arrive in this world naked - literally. You come in with nothing.
6. There is no set rule for timeskips. At opportune moments in the story, I will do a small global skip a few years into the future. Every participant will be warned ahead of time of when this skip will happen. Prior to these skips, try not to jump more than a few months or a year ahead in your characters development - and significantly less when you are just starting out.
7. You are free to write the reactions of denizens of the past as you see fit. On occasion, I or a CO-OP might intervene simply to make the story more interesting. You are limited in reacting for the ancients of another Author's civilization by what that particular Author will permit (if allowing you to react on their behalf at all).
8. You will arrive in this world after having awoken from sleep.
9. Your Author should not just instantly comprehend with their situation; some kind of panic should be expected.
10. Skills listed in your Author Profile should be specific, relevant to your current situation, and things to which you posses a degree of expertise at. You actually must be an knowledgeable expert at the skill which you list, in order to declare that you have it.
11. Do not list any of the following as a skill: historical knowledge, oration, charisma, leadership, military tactics - unless you have very hard skills in these areas. Do note that skills which are deemed too broad will have to be clarified until they fit our criterion for acceptance.

Frequently Asked Questions

A big question which often plagues Authors is how fast technology should progress, and what kinds of technologies would be available to them. You are free to explore off in any direction you want to, technology-wise, but you should probably keep some things in mind.

1. If you personally do not know how to do this thing right now IRL, your Author won't either.

2. You are starting out from as scratch as literally possible. You are coming into a world naked, during a time were writing and numeracy are practically unknown to anyone outside of other Author civilizations. Very basic laws and concepts of science and the world have not been invented yet, and are likely unknown to the average person. Most places are still using stone tools, and others are just beginning to use copper. The people of this era may be as rational and logical as you are, but that isn't to say that they have access to any specialty tools or knowledge. You will pretty much have to reinvent all the basic concepts of science

3. You are constrained by your resources. If you want to make some bronze, but the area you live in doesn't have any tin - well then you're almost certainly out of luck.

4. You can learn new knowledge and skills in the IC, it just takes time. Say you wanted to demonstrate your Author's ever growing affinity with carpentry, then you should show them, over a series of multiple posts, experimenting and figuring out the skills needed to be a carpenter. This goes with pretty much everything: blacksmithing, chemistry, tactics, medicine, sailing, etc.

5. If you aren't sure about the feasibility of something, just ask either myself, G-Tech, or post it up in the OOC. You will get helpful feedback and advice from your fellow Authors. Don't try and just fake it - you will be found out eventually, and may be asked to retcon your actions.


History is just a record of the actions of man, and culture is just a man's history remembered. Civilization isn't some arbitrary numerical measurement of a people, it is subjective. What kind of society do you want to build? What actions will propel the people around you towards that goal? What obstacles must you overcome? There is no objective way for a civilization to form, you've just got to figure it out on your own. Look to other Author's for examples if need inspiration.


A lot like regular non-civilized natives do - except a whole lot tougher. These guys aren't barbarians with clubs, these are civilized early nation's in their own right, with developed cultures, political systems, and reasonably advanced technology. Uncivilized peoples are pretty easy to conquer or convince to join your civ, by NPC civ's are a very different story. Your interactions with them will largely be left for you to write out in the IC - with occasional intervention perhaps from either of your OPs.


Eh, that depends. 1. How long were you gone in relation to the IC, 2. Are you still active.

For the first, if you were only gone for say, a single timeskip, and nothing significant happened to your civilization since you've been away, you'll be free to retake command of your old civ. If you were gone for longer, or something significant has happened to your civ, you may be asked to start again somewhere else in the world.

For the second, if you are gone, and your account goes inactive - your author is just presumed dead


Short Answer: Not Central Europe!

Long Answer: Depends. If you are story centric, and don't mind being on your lonesome for a long while, you should probably pick an area far away from any other Author Civ. There, you will have time to explore your own culture, free from having to worry about others interfering with your long term plans.

If you want to interact with others though, and desire rapid technological growth, I would suggest either East Asia, the Levant, or the Red Sea region. Those places have other authors, and they're not typically as murderous as the Europeans are.

China will grow larger.
“It is difficult for me to imagine what “personal liberty” is enjoyed by an unemployed hungry person. True freedom can only be where there is no exploitation and oppression of one person by another; where there is not unemployment, and where a person is not living in fear of losing his job, his home and his bread. Only in such a society personal and any other freedom can exist for real and not on paper.” -J. V. STALIN
Ernest Hemingway wrote:Anyone who loves freedom owes such a debt to the Red Army that it can never be repaid.

Fingers crossed, aye. I'm hoping personally for someone to pop up in Indochina, or the Gangetic Delta, or even the Amazon. The strange things such geographical spaces would do to civilization would be fascinating to observe.

An interesting premise. Been looking over your previous threads and I think the best thing for me is to settle down in an undisturbed corner of the globe where I can develop my land without any foreign interaction- at least not for a very long time.

Author Application
Name: Lucas Williams
Age: 21
Height and Weight: 5 foot 11, 194 pounds
Physical Description: A thin but strong build with some muscle, Lucas is relatively fit but hardly athletic. He is tall, with neatly cut black hair and tanned skin, and a short beard.
( Optional ) Picture: Lucas Williams

Prior Profession: Undergraduate student in Classics at the University of Exeter
Level of Education - Formal or Informal: Formal
Physique: See physical description.
Useful Skills: A good knowledge of linguistics and therefore able to learn local languages well.
National Origin: Resides in the United Kingdom; his parents were from Spain
What were you doing prior to falling asleep and awakening in the past?: Revising for final exams. Fell asleep while revising.
Description of Personality: Haughty and impatient, and willing to take risks to get what he wanted. However, also absolutely determined to complete his objectives.
Where in the world are you landing?: New York, New York

Autobiography/Biography: Lucas was born in London, in 2004. His parents were Spanish-born who arrived in the UK in the 1990s, his mother as a nurse and his father as a freelancer journalist, both hoping for a better standard of living than in Spain. He attended state schools and did reasonably well, eventually hoping to become a journalist like his father, or perhaps return to Spain and become an English teacher, which, he was told, would pay quite well. However, one of his teachers, seeing his skill in linguistics without having prior experience, suggested he study classics at university. His inherent skill in piecing together languages served him well, and he was accepted into the University of Exeter. There he has studied Latin and Greek ever since, until being sent back into the past.

Writing Sample: viewtopic.php?p=41235489#p41235489


What are your intentions for this RP; what do you think your Author will seek to accomplish?: Hopefully build a large, prosperous civilisation in Central America without having to interact or conflict with other nations.
What people or places are you taking inspiration from?: The Iroquois, principally, although I may be using Roman or Ancient Greek societies for certain aspects, especially the economy and maybe government.
Why did you chose to land where you did?: Undisturbed, undeveloped and far, far away.
What vibe should we get from your civilization and its culture, if you seek to establish one?: Given its isolation, mostly peaceful with slow conquests across the continent. Will focus on trade and development for the most part.
What are your character's motivations?: Don't die.
Theme Song?:
What do you wanna see in this RP? What would make it better?:

Ah, and here my wish is immediately fulfilled. Planning to migrate from NYC down to Central America? That should be an interesting story of heroism to read. And I love Iroquois influences.

Since you don’t have anything to work through, I’m happy to say you are accepted. Welcome!

G-Tech, is it alright to post on the old IC? The chapter will be where Rain arrives at the place where Orostan's author Aaron sent him to.

I don't want it to post on the new IC.

Do we need approval for 10 year timeskip developments?

I was plotting just a montage IC post - I'm essentially not doing anything too crazy, but rather, Aradin having stabilized the regional political situation and plugged into some of what Nux had going on before - he's going back to Mehgarh and the Bolan to go back to what he'd been doing.

Or can I just put it up and ya'll can critique and we'll edit it in post.

I will assume I can until otherwise directed.

I think as long as they're reasonable developments, major assertions or changes should be written out as to not skip over the juicy details. If you need clarification on specifics feel free to ask.

Ah, this is your first timeskip! So, you can TG me your thoughts if you want. Generically though, 90% of what happens as time passes is societal and civic development, since we want to see all the big events and fun stuff RPed out.

some questions i have , regarding to possible future development with my South American tribe.

Domestication and Cultivation
I'm guessing civilization cannot grow productively and consistently without agriculture as a base for settled societies [though several settled societies in Florida, North Japan, and Africa may have not initially practiced agriculture, though that might be because of the almost bountiful stocks of fish, which I cannot access ]. coincidently South America especially lacks many animals to become good domestics, and what little they have is often very regionalised. For example, a flightless bird that was historically domesticated was only in Lake Titicaca. I am in the cerrado, a good position for trade to perhaps get these animals later, but not in the immediate, which is important, as Europe and the Old world is only increasing technologically wise [China and the Imperium stand like this], and i do not want to be stuck in the Neolithic.

Several species i consider viable candidates for domestication in the localized Cerrado area, and i need to advance at least 2,000 years in as little as 100 or be crushed at the hands of the most developed powers in like 100 years. Once the whole arable old world is devoured they will go to the Americas. What I am asking here, is what is arguably the best candidate for domestication out of the small list i have procured. Of course best case scenario is that a complimentary assortment of these should used , but what should be a priority.

also disclaimer, most of these are insects, because i have most knowledge on them.

South American Locust
It's fast to mature and reproduce, needs comparatively little water and food compared to other animals [also can eat waste that other domesticates simply would not eat], can survive in very cramped spaces with many individuals and is very readily edible. However, it has many disadvantages [one being how to collect individuals from enclosures without them or their nymphs escaping as they have wings ]. My best deduction could be making small holes to slide food in and then when you need to collect indivduals, smoke it out like you would a bee hive? This would also need way too much carpentry to acheive that my character could feasibly acheive rn , as making an enclosure out of fabric or e.c.t [perhaps even resin] would be devoured bye locust. Its also hard to upscale, unlike other domesticates on this list.
Capybara
A giant guinea pig? What's not to love? They are social and rather tame, especially when grown around people. Though they need sources of Vitamin C and also need ample water.
Peccary
A mostly inferior Wild boar from Europe, though there is precedent for domestication. [i think the Maya kept herds of these, and perhaps they could be domesticated like their wild boar cousins]
Snails
Most of the benefits of a Locust, and most of the disadvantages [due to different factors such as the snail being able to climb on walls] Bands of copper or salt paint could deter these escapees. This can actually be upscaled very well, though i would argue that the conditions they have to be kept in are more encouraging of zoonotic transfer and parasites.
Woodlice
Most of the benefits of a Locust, and suprisingly little most of the disadvantages [due to different factors such as the woodlice being unable to climb on walls as long as its smooth]. Also needs minimal food [bark could do it, and rotting food] Needs to be kept very very moist though.

I'm writing up my first 2950 post and Aradin is going to start doing some probing of the boundaries of reality here.

He's conducting a number of language based experiments based around our 'language powers', and I need definitive answers to the following tests he's doing.

1) Is our ability to speak a language dependent on the vocabulary of the person we are speaking with? Or can we utilize the full range of that language as it exists regardless of limitations of the listener? Is there a range limit? Can we talk to ourselves in strange languages? Do we need to hear it, or is it enough for someone to simply know the language for us to talk to them in it?
Test 1: Speaking with someone with language deficit
Test 2: Speaking with someone with limited vocabulary
Test 3: Foreigners

If 'yes'

Then
2) Can we discern information about the knowledge base of those within the listener's language group by what vocabulary we are able to utilize?

For example, can Aradin narrow down his search for sulfur - for example - by asking travellers from other tribes/regions whether they know of sulfur/brimstone. Because either he can speak the word, or he has to default to english or describing elemental sulfur as like a weird, flaky, yellow, possibly stinky porous rock.

I'll say too, this isn't just about his search for chemical reagents - if this language ability allows us to, indirectly, tap information held by groups of people we have no contact with... this is going to radically affect his perception of reality.

A while ago I put down an app, and even an introductory post for a Minnesota based Author.

Would I be able to continue on where I left off, if I re dropped by app?

Certainly - I recall your application and intro. Would be happy to have you continue; I would just work as if there was no timeskip for you, since you were still in the throes of an introduction to your fellow. We can just retcon as if he landed in the present date.
Quite the unofficial fellow. Former P2TM Mentor specializing in faction and nation RPs, as well as RPGs. Always happy to help.
