    Right, so. Empires and Revolutions seems to be popular with the crowd, so I figured I'd bring back one of the RP's that started it, and certainly got RedSyndicate known on the Wurm forums.

    World in Balance.



    Players:
    •Azothia [Dark Grey] - Seed Eater
    •United Petrograd [Green] - Sobotnik
    •The Sol Confederacy [Orange] - UrbanMachismo
    •Escova [Harvard Crimson] - wizard`

    Turn List

    Turn 1 - 5000BC
    Turn 2 - 4500BC
    Turn 3 - 4000BC
    Turn 4 - 3500BC
    Turn 5 - 3000BC
    Turn 6 - 2500BC
    Turn 7 - 2000BC
    Turn 8 - 1500BC
    Turn 9 - 1000BC
    Turn 10 - 500BC


    How to join:

    PM me with this sheet filled out

    Nation Name: (Do not use real world nations. Make something up. i.e. The Grand Confederacy of the Rhine)
    National Religion: (No real world religions. Give me a name and a brief [one sentence] description)
    Flag: (250x150 flag. No other sizes will be accepted.)
    Colour: (You cannot be Yellow, Light Blue, Black, or White)
    Location: Crop the map down and put a dot where you'd like your capitol to be.

    I will be starting this game Friday, February 3rd at around 12n to 1pm Eastern Standard Time. You may still join after this date but you will be somewhat behind the other players.

    After the introductory turn where everyone's nations are established, send me a PM with the following information

    Subject: [Nation Name]: Turn #

    Technological Research:

    Military Endeavours:

    Economic Endeavours:

    Diplomacy:

    Internal Affairs:


    Technology:
    The game starts in the NEOLITHIC era. Technology research should reflect that. You may research up to 3 things at once. Whether or not you succeed is based on a 1-100 number roll on www.random.org . If you roll 1-50, you succeed. 51-100 you fail. I work down the list, if you fail to research technology 1, you go on to technology 2, and then 3 if you fail again. When you succeed at researching a technology you stop research for that turn.

    Things that are not technology research
    -Language/Writing
    -Mathematics
    -Money
    -Anything that isn't a tangible development.

    Things that are technology research
    -Metallurgy
    -Bronze tools
    -Weapons
    -etc

    Please do not write paragraphs I will not read them. Turns should be short and concise, like so:


    Technology:
    -Tech 1
    -Tech 2
    -Tech 3

    Military:
    -Invade nation X
    -Build defences along the border with nation Y
    -Expand the nation to the North into unclaimed territory

    Economy:
    -Develop a form of currency

    Diplomacy:
    -Host Olympic Games for all nations to attend

    Internal Affairs:
    -Execute all religious heretics


    The Map:

    White territory is unclaimed. You can colonize it at a slow to moderate pace depending on how many units you dedicate to it.

    Units:
    Your armies will be represented by small light blue dots. One dot is one contingent of soldiers. Each turn your cities will each produce 2 soldiers.


    So. Let's begin.

    This is prone to cheating.

    Monthly thread clean. Any thread with, like, 3000 posts or something gets locked at the end of the month now, except for super-slow threads.

    It only had like 1,300 or something like that.

    Edited:

    Also so that's stupid. If it's a popular thread why fuck with it? They should close the ones that ARE super slow.

    It doesn't take long to progress out of it. Don't be a wuss and join in on the fun.

    Neolithic just means stone tools. Then comes Bronze tools then Iron and before you know it you're in the medieval age.

    It's just a nation name bro. It doesn't matter.

    Do you really want a bunch of nations called "Ugathur" and "Oog Boog Nim Buk"?

    Considering you are starting way back when and you get to choose where you start, why not try with an original map? Might be more fun that way

    How is it too much information, you don't use it until you have to. When some people get in an argument over why they have better food output they can say, well it's because my country is by this large river, and the temperature range is optimal for farming etc

    I say use complicated maps IF we use a fictional planet. Though I don't care too much if we use Earth or not.

    I wouldn't mind using a fictional map, but I'd prefer Earth.

    At least, if we use a fictional map, make it Earth-like. No islands or anything, have actual continents that are mostly connected.

    A World in Balance, Turn 1 - 5000BC

    Current World Map

    Players:
    •Azothia [Dark Grey] - Seed Eater
    •United Petrograd [Green] - Sobotnik
    •Republic of Scandinavia [Blue] - Obnobs
    •The Sol Confederacy [Orange] - UrbanMachismo
    •City State of Hotaka [Red Orange] - Vampiresrock
    •Escova [Harvard Crimson] - wizard`
    •The Unified Holy Lands of Waterwell [Red] - MountainWatcher

    World Events:
    As people around the world start to develop stone tools and get a basic grasp of farming, they begin to settle down and form towns, rather than migrate and follow herds of prey animals. In several places in the world, enough people come together to form city states that hold a fair bit of influence on the surrounding countryside.



    Azothia - Dark Grey - [Seed Eater]
    National Religion: Order of the Old Ones
    Technology: Stone tools, Basic Farming Techniques

    -A city state in the Arabian Peninsula is founded by traveling sand nomads, which soon comes to be known as "Azothia". It governs over several small hamlets and villages surrounding it.
    -The people of this geographic location worship the gods Shub Niggurath, Dagon, Azathoth, and Yog Sothoth. The belief is held that these gods will bring doom to the world, and that by worshipping them, they can forstall their own demise.



    United Petrograd - Green - Sobotnik
    National Religion: Emernihgt
    Technology: Stone tools, Basic Farming Techniques

    -The city state of Unigrad is founded, and though the years as it grows and develops influence around the shores of what will become the Baltic Sea, its namesake eventually changes to 'United Petrograd'
    -Citizens of United Petrograd follow a religious system of Monotheistic Worship, holding weekly sermons at churches.


    NO FLAG FOR OBNOBS BECAUSE HE CAN'T FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS. FIX IT OBNOBS
    Commune of the Nordland - Blue - Obnobs
    National Religion: Secular
    Technology: Stone tools, Basic Farming Techniques

    -The city state of Nordland is founded on the coast of the Baltic Sea, all but a sister city to United Petrograd. It holds sway over the cold lands of the North and slowly develops as a maritime culture.



    The Sol Confederacy - Orange - UrbanMachismo
    National Religion: Solism
    Technology: Stone tools, Basic Farming Techniques

    -The city state of Sol is founded, a stranger place filled with many thinkers and philosophers. They quickly establish a semi rigid system of govornment over the villages and hamlets that surround the city, leaving them mostly autonomous.
    -Most people within the Sol Confederacy tend to follow the same philosophic belief of the men in the city state, that it is their destiny to reach out and touch the stars, and spread their wings and fly to the far reaches of space.


    NO FLAG FOR VAMPIRESROCK BECAUSE HE CAN'T FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS. FIX IT.
    City State of Hotaku - Red Orange - Vampiresrock
    National Religion: Hotanity
    Technology: Stone tools, Basic Farming Techniques

    -The City State of Hotaku is founded on Mainland Japan, which govorns over the small but numerous tribal villages of the now Hotakan people.
    -A religion of sorts spring up within the City State called Hotanity, which is merely a disguise for people worship, as the citizens mainly pay their homage to the leader Hotaku the Third.



    Escova - Crimson - wizard`
    National Religion: Cogitari
    Technology: Stone tools, Basic Farming Techniques

    -The city state of Escova is founded on the coast of the Mediterranian Sea, an eclectic mix of people with a large stake in both coast fishing and farming.
    -The religion of Cogitari develops among the Escovans, which holds a similar belief to Solism except that, rather than spreading through the stars, the people of Escova wish to reach ascension through philosophical and scientific development.



    The Unified Holy Lands of Waterwell - Red - MountainWatcher
    National Religion: Physicalism
    Technology: Stone tools, Basic Farming Techniques

    -The city state of Waterwell is founded along the coast of the Amazon River, within the dense rain forests of the Amazon. It controls a few larger villages along the river and within the forests.
    -The religion of Physicalism evolves in this region, which from what I can tell involves worshipping the Earth as a Fetus and the God of Compassion, which allows humans to mine his body, and the Sky as a Womb and the Goddess of Knowledge. What the fuck, Mountain?
