For those of you who wish to become a part of the Roleplaying community here on the National Affairs

subforum of Politics & War, this is the thread within which you should apply!

 

Current map (updated as of 1/18/17)

Spoiler

Are you a new member to P&W, looking to try out some roleplaying? Or are you already a seasoned roleplayer, looking to develop his/her skills in RPing? Well, all I can say is that with this post, I hope to establish a friendly, low-drama roleplaying environment for those among us who have an interest in roleplaying out our nation's actions. Whether you're an experienced roleplayer, or completely new and inexperienced to roleplaying, allow me to say that I'll do my best as your OP to be friendly and accepting of every type of roleplayer.
 
High quality roleplay and constructive world-building are encouraged.
For in-depth roleplay (multiple paragraphs, extensive posts) you should make your posts and threads here.
For more natural roleplay not directly associated with your in-game nation and less restrictions, you should make your posts and threads here.
For casual roleplay, the National Affairs subforum itself should do.

(However, this does not mean that you are free to do as you please in the National Affairs subforum. It will still be moderated, as it is meant for in-character posts and interactions.)
 
(Note of interest: Several members of our roleplaying community have based their nations or leaders upon those inspired from anime and other fictional sources. This is perfectly acceptable so long as your roleplay is constructive and well-intentioned. However, this style of roleplay does not give you an advantage in terms of wars, or anything. Similarly, you cannot use it as an excuse to develop incredibly advanced technology in short periods of time, as it is unfair to those who put much time and effort into their roleplay. You're free to be as creative as you like, so long as it is within the rules. This is to avoid Godmodding and OP posts.)
 
Interested in joining? Don't be shy, and fill out the application below.
 
Even if you choose not to reply in this thread, you're free to make use of the subforum. This is merely a thread within which we can see who has, and who hasn't, read the thread's specific rules and accepted them.
 
*Before applying, be sure to read the rules of the National Affairs subforum here.*

APPLICATION

Official nation name:

Population (P&W numbers):

GDP per capita (P&W numbers):

Population density (sq. km):
Form of Government:

Politics & War Wikia link (leave blank if you don't have one):

Describe your Nation IC:
Describe yourself in OOC terms:

Have you read, and do you agree to abide with, the rules? (Yes/No):
(You must not have a history of continuous rule breaks in the national affairs subforum!)

Where on the map do you want to be located? (Using real-world geography/nations, or a self-provided map):

Nation flag link (if you have a specific one you want to be used):

(Map-wise, you're limited to a maximum of 50 provinces. If you go higher than that, I'll personally adjust it down until it's at 50, or ask you to re-do your own example until it fits within the 50 province limit. Note that expansion is allowed, but at a maximum of four provinces per month as to be as realistic as possible. This rule applies to nations under 50 provinces as well. Nations are permitted to own colonies, but at a maximum of 5 with no more than 20 provinces each. Provinces are unable to be moved from one location to another. Gifted land is also capped at four provinces per month. Land gained by a nation as a result of war can be more than this.)

(You are required to post at least once a month in the national affairs subforum to remain active. This means creating your own topic, not just commenting in someone else's posts. Inactive nations will be removed from the map.)

 
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me in-game or here on the forums. To view the map with no flags, click here.

Expansion beyond 50 at a rate of 2 a month?

If not then I don't accept that as I only have like around 30 or so provinces, two a month won't do at all.

I've been considering allowing nations under 50 provinces to expand to 50 whenever they want, then having the two/month rule take effect.

I'm going to have to go ahead and withdraw/abandon my claim. I don't have the time to do this proper, what with an increase in school prep and work.

Alright. I've removed your claim from the map. If at any time you wish to come back, you're more than welcome to.

A concern I have regarding expansion: If nations under the 50 province limit start claiming however many provinces they need to reach 50 all at once, it may or may not ruin the realistic side of things depending on how large the land area is. I'd also hate to make exceptions for certain nations if the land area they might claim in this case is small, but larger for another nation. And if I outright allow this, other nations may start try to land grab all at once just because they can. Let me know your thoughts on this.

I honestly think 50 is to big. Like maybe for small provinces, but like for Russia, you could grab like all of Russia in asia and then some if you were allowed to have 50 provinces. I think we should come up with a reasonable sized province and say like you can like 10 times the size of this province or something. But yeah. I considered, since I can still get 50, taking like all of Canada...

As of today, the QE has its allegiance with the Black Knights. The Quarians are very resourceful. They are masers of engineering vehicles and Genetics(Umbrella Corp. being the largest and most powerful commercial entity in the Quarian Empire).

You should require some RP to support any expansion. And make clear that you'll enforce some realism, so people with small militaries can try, but should know they wont be able to defend huge chunks of territory.

This is great guys. 

 

I'm glad you guys are offering up your opinions on the RP in this forum. My general rule of thumb is, if you have added RP - it will be a good time.

You should require some RP to support any expansion. And make clear that you'll enforce some realism, so people with small militaries can try, but should know they wont be able to defend huge chunks of territory.

It should be limited to nation city size as well, take for instance Hequ who doesn't mind role-playing as a 1 city state both here and in-game which I think is fascinating but wouldn't agree with. 

But I don't think a 1,4,8 city nation should be taking over 50 provinces. I think they should be allowed to have a certain amount of provinces that they can expand on as they grow. 

Military should probably be factor, how are you really taking over land if you can't defend it with in-game numbers but I don't like the idea of forcing people to have military.

 

Limiting and reducing land claims for already existing nations would improve the longevity of the RP. 

 

 

I'd also hate to make exceptions for certain nations if the land area they might claim in this case is small, but larger for another nation.

 

The thing about that is people want the land in the "good" positions, I'm not the worse offender of taking areas where provinces are large, it certainly wasn't my intention as it just so happens that is where my nation has being located for over 2 years now probably.

I will say one thing, The United states provinces look way too small, I assume it was measured off population density to some degree, something looks off about it though. 

 

 

But yeah allocating a limit based of nation/no of cities and then two a month is probably a better way.

Flag added to the map.

It's two per month currently, so you're able to expand whenever you want.
