OOC Discussion

Post by PresidentDavid on Wed Jul 27, 2016 8:08 pm

This thread is for any and all OOC discussion on the game, or anything else one might want to mention. It's a great place to ask questions, and a great place to vent frustrations.

Everyone be sure to check out the welcome page again - there's an updated history there. I'm going to ask Owl to also post it in the map thread. http://nationrp.forumotion.com/t12-welcome-to-the-roleplay

Realistic empires/annexations

Post by Euphaia on Fri Aug 05, 2016 7:23 am

Empires IRL are/were very difficult and very expensive to maintain. That is why everyone relinquished them. Native populations wanted independence and grew increasingly unrestful. The more area an empire claimed, the more the amount of disgruntled people there would be.

I think something along these lines should be in the rules.

That's an interesting idea. Generally, in RP, we try not to have anyone roleplay other people's characters or people, but if done correctly that could potentially be a way to keep people from blobbing without challenge. Once we have GMs elected, they can possibly look into such measures.

Well, my idea isn't so much about RPing other people's citizens, as it is about creating some sort of rule that limits blobing, or at least makes maintaining blobs/empires increasingly more difficult the larger they become.

A good example would be the Civilization PC games;; each city costs money to maintain, as well as potentially increased your civilization's overall unhappiness.

Yeah, I understand what you're getting at. I don't think it's a bad suggestion, it's good to have things in place to make sure people don't expand too quickly.

Having played Civ III and Civ IV, city upkeep can be manageable. Especially with communism, which eliminated the distance-based rise in cost/corruption. Unhappiness I never experienced. That was more related to cities becoming too large.

So I asked on irc if I should join and then proceeded to get shot down by everyone bombarding me with "no." Until then I guess I'm going to toot my horn here and argue about how the Komet is better than what half of you said or somethiny.

I think that was just people being silly Greatkitteh. If you are willing to abide by the rules, then you can join. Just go post in the "Join Here" thread.

I just found an interesting place to recruit new players who are doing something similar to what we are. Hopefully it pans out.

Yo, newface! Well, the one RPing in Denmark-Holland.

I just wanted to point out, the correct German expression for your legislative would be "das Vereinigte Parlament", given Parlament is neuter and singular. Adjective got capitalised because it's a name, otherwise non-capitalised.

If you need any help with any such thing, feel free to ask, I know German.

Thanks, I just pulled it off of Google Translate so it probably does have errors. I'll change it. Do you know German because you are German or just like the language?

I'm not German, yet to say I learned it for my love of the language would not be the truth. I am Austrian, I do appreciate my language though, more so since I learned English.

You know, the Polish NPC isn't going to just sit around and watch you violate their sovereignity. You can try salvage ships that sunk in your waters.
