A Starving Republic in Turmoil (MT/OOC/Open)

Postby Xofrautan » Sat Feb 10, 2024 7:56 pm

The IC Thread

An OOC thread for planning out the RP

The Republic of Xofrautan is experiencing the worst famine and food shortage since the early 1900s under Phibetan Rule. Factors including drought, government corruption, religious apathy, and extreme capitalism have turned the land of plenty into a hellhole. Xofrautan is now on the brink of revolution and civil war as half of the population, mostly of the lower caste, starve to death, and it seems nations would want to take advantage of the land again.

Didn’t think I would need an OOC thread, but with all the ideas going around,

1. The game takes place in the modern era.

2. As I said at the top, you can RP as humanitarians, politicians, journalists, military officers, revolutionaries, and tourists/residents. No military invasions, or nukes. No military deployment unless as humanitarian aid. No large warships or aircrafts for members outside of Greater Dienstad.

3. The current status is that the president is not assassinated, this is a slow rise to revolution as the situation gets worse. Rumors of the president being assassinated is currently allowed.

4. Diplomatic gifts (bribes) and small humanitarian aid is allowed but at the discretion of the OP.

5. All other standard RP rules apply

6. If you have any other questions, please TG me

7. No God-modding or over empowerment, OP is The Arbitrator.

8. This is also at the discretion of the nations that run Greater Dienstad and the GDRC who I am closely working with for the RP (Since Xofrautan is apart of the region)

9. Because the OP is dealing with classes and such, OP updates may take some time to deal with. Please be patient as I try and process through every single post.

This thread was definitely necessary.

Maybe post the link on the first page via editing the post so more people can see it?

Heh, yeaaaah. Very needed. I love how the president read the newspaper about his ‘assassination’ and was confused. That was great!

News of the famine has reached Sondestadt and a response is coming once I work out which to do. I'm currently wondering whether to just send a load of foreign aid (as in, more than the port can deal with, Velstrania is a very food-rich state) or send an offer to the government stating that we'd love it if they'd just export their starving people as we need the workers.

Know there is also an active discussion in the GDRC, for your GD member-state.

I know, however if Velstrania has decided to send out huge quantities of food I'll make the post like they've been sailing for a long while. My response in the gdrc will reflect that, so I need to work out what to do prior to posting in either.

I cobbled together a map to better visualize the situation in and around Sanktum.

Sorry for shit quality, but I'm not the best map-maker - just something to have as a visual aid.

Purple dots denote sites controlled by the Arakhkhar-backed militia, blue dots denote Xofraustani government aligned sites in the region.

I think visual aids are most helpful, thanks for this.

That is not actually to far off of what I thought of, and what my map is like.

please give me a text-based description of any ships that might possibly be in the way of something coming from the GVH. I plan to have my humanitarian ships come pretty much now.

They aren’t participating in combat. As of the moment, the Federation’s crew and mine are just talking outside Xofraustani borders.

Yeah, but I got a private message about how someone got a large warship at a major port with nobody noticing apparently.

Also, if I may ask. Can everyone at this moment please write down their intentions at this time? Thank you

Short term: Build up the militia, use Lieutenant Jatal to rapidly spread influence among the poor and disaffected, smuggle more arms, food, medical aid, and use a black-ops team to capture the wealthy politician from earlier to be ‘interrogated.’

Long term: Install a Arakhkharan-friendly government in Xofraustan.

This, but without the need for an actual deal to be present.

Short term goals: Greenhouse LLC will make a lot of money off the famine

Long term: Greenhouse will use the famine to make their economic prevalence permanent.

Short term goal: Vanya wants to kill a white tiger, as it’s a rare beast in Volkovograd.

Long term goal: drug peddling by Volkovogradian cartels, and Organ Harvesting of the Dalits to sell to a distinguished international buyer.

Would have been nice to know about this early on with some basic rules. We have fighters at your international airport that have only attacked an Arakhkhar battery after one of our drones was shot down. Both the Arakhkharis and I are currently engaging in talks several miles off the coast. The tiltrotors can be RP'd to leave the mainland, but I would be RPing that with Arakhkhar since we are in the process of forming an alliance.

Short Term: Assist Arakhkhar and their operatives in creating a revolutionary movement

Long Term: Extract a slave force from Xofrautan, and possibly set a mining outpost.

Arakhkhar, if you plan on military action against GD, it would behoove you to coordinate with us OOCly. We are a long-established region.

Edit: I would also recommend slowing down your posting. Even the OP can't keep up. Quality > quantity.

Edit 2: For reference, a map of our region:

Xofrautan is not yet on the map, but it's "up north." They can confirm where they requested their location on the map.
