    "From the desert, the dawn of a new age shines upon humanity, the age of the masses." ~ Muammar al-Gaddafi

    The inevitable conflict has come and gone – the Reich had pushed its way across Europe, the Emperor across Asia. Africa had collapsed long ago, and America’s leaders agreed – the end was nigh. With their final push, the world splintered; once great nations fell to bits, and the people of the world set their eyes upon a virgin planet yet again. That was 20 years ago, and the dawn rises on 1965.

    But from the rubble, countries once shattered begin to reunite. Washington and Lincoln, the Caesars of Rome, Napoleon, Lenin, and Bismarck – these figures pale next to those who now rise like the morning sun. A new age of imperialism is born from the ashes of the old, and only the greatest of men will be able to... RULE THE WORLD!

    Hello, hello and welcome! Johnny’s got a brand new spin and this time we’re gonna be in for one helluva fight. The rules are simple, as they have been – claim countries, and by hook or by crook, make the world yours.

    But there are a few changes.

    First of all, as in The Huntsman’s games, you will get resources and have citizen happiness. It will work somewhat differently, though. Each round, you will get +X resources and +X happiness. Resources allow, well, everything. You can purchase investments, expand to new countries – IT COSTS 2 RES TO CLAIM A NEW COUNTRY – and for every resource point you have more than your opponent, you will get that many additional points in a battle.

    But do not thing you can simply do whatever you wish. If your citizens are unhappy, beware; once their happiness falls far enough, some may choose to secede from your country, will be less willing to fight, and they may even choose to overthrow you! Be sure to remain in the good graces of your people.

    Now, you will need to choose THREE (!) modifiers, which will alter how you obtain these resources. Normally, you get +0 RES and +0 HAP each round; these will alter those numbers.

    A) Economy
    There are three economic models – Socialist, Capitalist, and Autocratic.


    B) Government
    As with the economy, there are three models – Democratic, Monarchist, and Dictatorial.


    C) Leadership Traits
    There are five traits total, and unlike the others, all effects are positive.


    Now, as I mentioned before, Investments! For RES, you can purchase one of the following...


    Now, now, now... war. It is, on the whole, the same as it has always been, using rolls of the dice. The same modifiers...

    • +10 – Invaded Without Declaration (First Round Only)
    • +2 – Connection to your Capital
    • +2X – For Each Flank on your Opponent
    • +1X –For Each Ally Directly Engaged With the Enemy
    • -5 – Capital Movement
    ...and the same rules. However, there are some slight changes – you must now DECLARE war at least 12 hours before I post the update. This gives your opponents the ability to ACKNOWLEDGE this war – if they do not you get +5 for the first round. If you declare war to me in private, you will gain a large boost in the first round, but the world will look unfavorably upon you, as will your people – this is considered a UN sanction.

    In addition, your resource output will be halved as long as you are at war, and you will get -2 RES and -2 HAP for each enemy you are engaged with, a number that doubles for both with every five years that goes by. So, if you have been engaged with three enemies for fifteen years, you will have -12 HAP per turn, averaged to your normal output.

    Speaking of which, I am the head of the UN. I cannot obtain new countries, cannot go to war, cannot invest, and cannot lose – or win. Any disputed land will be taken by me. Any dispute between nations will be handled by me, and all compromises will go through me. In addition, I can pass RESOLUTIONS, or sanctions. A sanction is something you must or cannot do – use nuclear arms, for example, or draft over 20 HAP. You are free to defy these resolutions and sanctions; however, your citizen happiness will drop significantly.

    ...

    SO! In the first post is the map. Please, if you would, sign up in the following manner...

    Nation: Nation Name
    Leader: Leader Name
    Government Type: Democratic Socialism/Capitalist Dictatorship/Etcetera
    Trait: Artistic/Moralistic/Etcetera
    Location: First Country Claimed
    Capital: Capital City

    Leader: Solomon the Sultan
    Government Type: Autocratic/Monarchy
    Trait: Imperialistic
    Location: Israel
    Capital: Jerusalem
    Color: Maroon

    Hello. My name is Solomon and I have just now been named Sultan of the Holy Lands. My English is not perfected so please do not ridicule me for this. I look forward to meeting all of my fellow leaders in the coming years and I hope you all look forward to meeting the new Sultan also.

    I would like to be known as "Sultan" because it means "Strength" in my country and I am indeed very strong. If you do not call to me as "Sultan" I will have you executed, no matter where you live.

    Be good now fellow leaders because Sultan is watching you.

    ...

    Oh yes. I nearly had forgotten. It appears with this special leadership I lead I have been permitted a second country to add to The Holy Lands. This country will be Egypt.

    For these sort of things, I would reccommend chosing a party name or party head to represent your power base; for example, the Chairman of hte Democratic National Committee (in the US). Party heads and such can stay in power for MUCH longer than literal leaders, and being "unelected" would having an opposing party take control.

    You need another half to your government - democracy, monarchy, dictatorship - and also, since you're Imperialistic, you can claim a second country.

    Hello! My name is Emperor Porcupine, After barely surviving my previous adventure - getting by on the good graces of Mark Nichols, who I remain in debt too, if you haven't been keeping up - I have decided to re-try my luck in this, new world.

    I am Autocratic - no point taking lip from a bunch of snowmen. In the same vein, I am a dictatorship.I am also very charismatic, so it's cool though.

    My color will be gray, and I think I'll start in Moscow.

    I think it would probably be a good idea to add Strategic Defense Initiative to the investment list. There needs to be something keeping nukes in check.

    Alright, Porcupine. I've come up with the ways you can pay me back. I want you to give me an annual payment of resources. I will let you pick the rate you want, and from there, I decide when you are paid off.

    Options:

    2 Year Plan: Pay 6 resources a year for 2 years, for a total of 12 resources. You will not be able to claim land during this plan.
    3 Year Plan: Pay 5 resources a year for 3 years, a total of 15. You will be able to claim land once during this plan, and will get one leftover resource at the end of the plan.
    4 Year Plan: Pay 4 resources a year for 4 years, a total of 16. You will be able to claim land, but you will not have any leftover resources to use.
    9 Year Plan: Pay 3 resources a year for 9 years, a total of 27. You will be able to claim land and will have one leftover resource a year.
    25 Year Plan: Pay 2 resources a year for 25 years, a total of 50. You will have two leftover resources a year.

    The choice is yours. Please select quickly, as the sooner you select, the sooner you are paid off.

    Greetings fellow nations, my name is Galileo Cartoon, son of the late Ezekiel Cartoon. I have found the lost continent of Atlantis and the citizens have agreed to return to the modern world and bring their unique culture and technology to share with the world. Together we plan to build a new Atlantian empire originating in Australia.

    I’ve decided to change my selections. I hope it’s not too late.

    These are bleak times that we live in. Less than a century after Abraham Lincoln valiantly saved the Union, we find ourselves broken once more. Despite our best efforts – despite our commitments to peace and unity – we find our country, still young in the eyes of the world, on the brink of destruction. It is for that reason that I must do whatever I can to save the United States. I understand that there is great trepidation over the fact that I have suspended elections, in addition to dissolving the legislative and judicial branches of government, but these are bleak times that we live in. I assure my fellow Americans that I do this with the best interest of our country at heart, and once we restore our country to its former glory and bring stability to the world, the constitution will be upheld in full. Until then, I do what I must.

    I am appointing Henry Kissinger as our ambassador to the United Nations.

    I am sending Spiro Agnew to New Baja, hoping to convince King Zoidberg not to expand any further north. Our countries can be great allies, and if you agree not to expand into the United States, we will recognize your sovereignty in Central and South America. You will have a friend in the United States.

    Yup, that too.

    Hm, no. Those are all completely unacceptable, and if not accepting them means breaking my deal, consider it broke.

    Here is my offer to you; I will step in when you are in trouble. You get in a war, I nuke the guy. You start to dramtically lose resources, I pass you a couple. You start to lose Citizen Happiness, I send my Secret Police over with a couple of "Nichols is Watching" signs. Essentially, until I feel we are even, I got your back.

    "We stand on the edge of a New Frontier—the frontier of unfulfilled hopes and dreams, a frontier of unknown opportunities and beliefs in peril. Beyond that frontier are uncharted areas of science and space, unsolved problems of peace and war, unconquered problems of ignorance and prejudice, unanswered questions of poverty and surplus." ~ John F. Kennedy
    Let the games begin!

    HERE is the opening map. First post has been updated with stats and such. seen19beep still need to tell me his government type, and still gets an extra country for his Imperialism.​

    There are NO Events this round.

    Remember, you may claim ONE country, at it costs two resources. Be sure to check your bonuses from traits and government types.​
