Well, I thought with the recent success of some of the mafia games it might be interesting to try another forum game.

Anyways, essentially what this game becomes is a more in-depth version of RISK. Although unlike RISK, the goal isn’t necessarily to just conquer your opponent. You can establish alliances, build a militaristic empire, or decide to build economic utopia, etc. You can declare war if you like, or walk the route of peace. I suppose if I had to sum it up, it’s like an awesome version of RISK combined with something like model U.N.

I won’t go too crazy into some of the rules or explaining the game, as I’m not sure how interested people will be. Essentially the game is pretty relaxed though. Depending how active people are, or aren’t, the game can slow down or speed up as needed. People post in an “actions” thread, as well as use PM’s to send other types of actions (actions aren’t from a set list, it’s basically whatever you like to do).

I've done this on other forums with a lot of success. People usually have a blast. You don’t necessarily need to be politically minded or have a ton of knowledge of certain countries as there are a lot of information resources to rely on to help you out. I try not to make the game too complex. This is usually a pretty good game, as I mentioned before, as it doesn't need to go a hundred miles an hour in order to get things done. Also, because of that, I don’t think it would interfere if the mafia games pick back up, or if people get busy with everyday life.

Basically, each week you write up a post (it can be long if you want, or succinct and straight to the point) detailing your various actions of your country. Declare war, make spending cut backs, or open diplomatic relations with any number of countries.

Well, that’s probably enough of me blabbering on, so if anyone wants to sign up just say so here. This thread is just to gauge interest, and if enough people do sign up, I’ll get into some of the rules (there aren’t too many!) and we could pick countries later, which will probably be done draft style so it’s fair.

I'd say if we can get at least 8-10 people to sign up we can go forward and I'll explain exactly how everything works.

ALSO, I'd like to point out that I will be acting as the "moderator." Essentially, the moderator determines how successful certain actions are, as well as throws in other interesting elements (such as natural disasters, outcomes of wars, etc.).

Although you CAN do whatever you want, the moderator attempts to keep it in the realm of realism. For example, if you're the US and try to convert to a communist nation over night you'll probably have wide scale riots and your government would be toppled (just an extreme example). Or if you nuke Canada, that might cause some issues (as much as we all want it to happen).

Is this going to require multiple looks throughout the day? I'm usually a little limited at times mostly weekends.

It really just depends. Essentially it's turn-based. Everyone has to make their post on their countries actions and then we wait until they're all in. Then I make my response and post it and so on. It's very self-paced. I might start off slow with requiring a person to post their actions once a week and go from there.

Depends how many people sign up. More people = longer it takes to advance.

So basically, no to answer your question. You can look at it a few times a week, if we're not going too fast.

Neat. And I'm not sure when to start. I wouldn't mind starting it off a little smaller to begin. Honestly, another thing that is awesome about this game is people can join up even when its in progress (or at least after a turn is completed). Any country that isn't occupied people can hop in.

I MAY start it at 10 people.

We have 13 so I'm going to temporarily cut off sign ups until at least the first turn is over. If more people want in, they can hop in on the next wave and choose their country on a first come, first serve basis.

It doesn't look like there will be many conflicts with countries. I'll send out a PM asking you all to pick your top 3 countries though. If there are issues I'll resolve them likely by flipping a coin (sorry!).

Also, I'll likely put up a very detailed version of what to expect and the rules. I apologize because it's fairly lengthy but bare with me and read it!

If anyone doesn't want to participate, let me know but I'll send out PM's shortly requiring you to make a list of countries you'd be willing to run. Be sure you have good back ups because you might not get the country you want if it is conflicting.

Granted, I like that we're in the subforum because it isolates things a bit but at the end of the day its just a game.

Still waiting on quite a few people's lists. Another nice thing about this game is you're welcome to talk privately to anyone you want. There's no real way to cheat. If you wish to form secretly alliances, that's fine.

However, if you try to gang up on individuals for no reason whatsoever I do have control over countries that people aren't using so they could easily come to the rescue of someone unfairly attacked and such.

Makes it sort of fun too. If you attack without good reason, you could end up starting World War III.

Also, I wanted to point out, any responses MUST come in the next turn. For example, if someone is invading your country and you post AFTER the persons invasion you can't preempt their current and ongoing strike in the current turn.

This is why the covert action summary is important too. If you want to attack someone without them having any idea its coming (in the small chance they could somehow mitigate the damage in their own action summary) then the covert action summary is the way to go. Granted, unless this is a small surgical strike then it will become known but you will maintain the complete element of surprise.

I just wanted to clarify that. This is a turn based game. You can't react to certain things until the next turn.

It's difficult to sum up exactly how long one turn is, but needless to say if you're doing something like..trying to increase education spending or research over a five year period it will certainly take some time to take effect.

China receives nearly 3 billion in foreign aid and the US being one of the main countries that gives us that money. Where do you get your money you ask? The US takes out a loan from China to finance it only to give it right back to us in aid and also build up an even bigger debt against us.

So basically I'm telling you that you did not think this plan out very well. You're only thinking with your military and it will take more than that to be a bully.

China has been trading and exporting with Korea it's known world wide so it's nothing new so telling me to stop with little reasoning is not going to make me stop. North Korea is surviving BECAUSE of China. China provides North Korea with about 80% of their consumer goods and almost most of their food. So here it is no, I will not stop aiding North Korea. And export/import with Iran is very important to us with them providing us with Oil so no I will not cut ties with them.

I am assuming covert actions are set in stone when sent so you don't get 50,000 PMs, lol.

Hmm. This is usually a tough rule to deal with. I've done it both ways. The problem with allowing editing is people will try to adjust their own posts based on what other people post before them, even if it is subtle.

I'm going to say you can edit it, but it as I stated before, if someone invades you then you can't your military element in any way, i.e. suddenly ramping up your production of tanks or tightening up your border defense and what not. But yes, just one covert action haha.



Anybody who takes action against the west can expect a quick and severe counter attack.

I see the US is already trying to create tension between the powerful nation of China. We will not be bullied this is a warning.

Remember, this is the equivalent to the out of game mafia discussion thread. If you have a feud with another country please leave it to the in-game discussion thread. This is more casual. And also, clearly this isn't mafia but conflict, deception, etc. between countries happen A LOT so I wouldn't want anyone to take it personally.

Also, I just wanted to add, this is very much so NOT mafia and it should not be treated as such. You're free to do what you want, but if you try to question all your trade agreements (many have done this), stir up things, and be generally be a loose cannon your country is going to suffer for it.

I'm not directing this at anyone in particular, it's just a reminder that this and the mafia game have nothing in common. Don't play this like the mafia game. Not using common sense and acting irrationally will only hurt your country. Granted, countries have disagreements all the time but how they handle that is key to stability. If you try to start things up, it will not end like mafia does.

True enough. However, correct me if I'm wrong, they did mention a defense aspect to that agreement as well? Not to mention trade agreements can have various other incentives and stipulations that don't just include free trade.

Assuming most people get it before 7, yes. I may extend the deadline by a few hours though as some have expressed concerns that they will post but might not be able to make the deadline exactly.

I've already been writing up the responses as people send in their stuff so it's quicker to get out. Now granted, if someone did something crazy I may have to alter that but I don't expect a whole lot as our first turn progresses.

I don't mind being lenient, especially as this is the first go at it. From my understanding, it sounds like a lot of people were doing behind the scenes trade deals and such and they wanted to hold off posting until they knew the outcomes of these deals.

They do mention the military and I think its a main aspect of the alliance, which is perfectly fine. As for incentives and stipulations, they would need to walk a fine line with that, as anything that provided any country with an advantage within the EU, and thus put the excluded countries at a disadvantage, would violate EU law.

Correct again sir. I'm more lenient with the first turn, as people are just starting to get acquainted with their countries and are making more large, sweeping generalized policies as opposed to more specific policies and such.

Haha, that's very understandable. It's tough to really know about a country but there are a lot of resources that can help with this. You don't have to be too specific the first turn. Most people aren't because they want flexibility in how they react and it gives them more time to research.

Agreed. The first step is always the hardest. I've done this a lot before, and as we go on and potentially start new games people get much more comfortable when they get to see others handling certain countries and in general react accordingly.

I'll be interested to see if anyone takes any sort of military action. One thing I always do is encourage people to be specific with that. The more specific and well-thought out your plan of attack is, the better chance it has to succeed. Usually, people always attack in the covert action thread (which I will then publicize in my response if it is a large scale action as that is impossible to stay hidden).

Also, if anyone is having second thoughts and doesn't feel like they want to do this anymore just let me know. Fenikz dropped out so Iran is no longer a user-controlled country.

Since it seems like a few people are hovering around the deadline I'm going to extend it until 9 p.m. (EST) tonight.

Also, do not forget to send in your covert actions. Even if you don't want to do anything, just PM me saying so. Some have posted action summaries but not sent be covert action summaries.

I have no clue what I'm doing really so my first write up will likely be crap.

Forenci
11-27-2012, 07:56 PM
Almost everyone's stuff is in. I have not heard anything from Renji so I will likely proceed without his response. Rufus dropped out due to time constraints which is perfectly understandable.

I've already begun my write up and once I have bantx's I can really dive into it. It will be broken down, country by country, as well as a global events and news section.

Should be fun. I think you guys will enjoy the responses. Keep in mind, more detailed and specific action summaries get longer and more specific responses. The first turn is the toughest and you certainly don't need to write an essay but the more specific you are the better off you will do (more than likely).

North Korea and Iran dropped out. Lame.

Forenci

Well, I don't know of Renji dropped but I'm probably going to advance without him and determine that later.

Needless to say, I can't give an ETA when my response will be up as it's quite a bit of writing but I am working away on it.

Yeah, I'd proceed. Just a shame because those are the 2 nations most likely to stir up some serious ****.

Anyway, take your time. This obviously is an incredible amount of work.

Haha, it is a lot of writing. Normally I have 2-3 other people doing write ups.

I do a lot of pre-writing during the week as people's posts come in. They all kind of came at the end though making it somewhat more difficult but I should have it done by tonight hopefully.

I'm hoping the write up should be up within the next hour or so. Most of it was just getting the backbone in place, which makes it easier for the future.

Almost done. Just briefly checking it over. I apologize if it's got any typos and grammatical issues as it as crap ton of writing (over 2000 words worth) so I don't really feel like editing it too much.

Phew. Posted! Quite long haha. Hopefully everything looks solid. It will be fun to see how everyone responds. As you can see, the more detail (detail doesn't mean length necessarily) the more I'm able to give responses. Hopefully using my responses, as well as your fellow countries posts will be able to clarify some issues. I highly recommend getting started early on your next turns post! The earlier the better!

I will likely send out any covert summary responses tomorrow, although many of you might not get a response if it there isn't much to respond to.

You may want to ask Switzerland first instead of just inviting yourself over. Didn't your mother ever teach you any manners?

You are welcome to join. Any anyone else for that matter.

although, I really do need to find someone to help with all the write ups. It's not as bad if people get a chunk of them in early because I can do it through out the week but when they all come in at once it's difficult.

If anyone is interested in signing up, just PM the country you want, read the how to play/rules thread.

I mean, you're free to do what you see fit but part of the difficulties of being a good leader for your country is balancing what the people believe and want and what you believe. Just casting aside people because they don't agree with you is monumentally stupid and will only further hurt your country.
