Thread: E Pluribus Unum - An Interactive AAR

    E Pluribus Unum - An Interactive AAR



    What is E Pluribus Unum?

    E Pluribus Unum is an interactive AAR concept where YOU the reader have choices in matters that happen. this isnt a simple option one, option two concept, but you're own fellow AARlanders will run for office, form parties, and generally shape the Kaiserreich world.

    The basic premise of this AAR is a 1936 Kaiserreich start on Normal/Furious with The United States of America. Updates will be written by me in a newswire or in status updates to Congress. Congress will be elected once every two years starting in 1936. All readers will then be encouraged to form their own political parties with other players, choose ideologies, and respond accordingly on issues put forward by me, the GM and host. Then during election a ruling party will be chosen by voting of all readers. Parties are also allowed to form coalitions to come in control.

    To keep things simple, ruling parties use a sort of triumvirate system: ruling parties will have to appoint a President (Head of state and main diplomat) supported by an Army Affairs Minister (controls all military assets and conduct of war) and Internal Minister (Production, technology). The president –advised by his party members- then dictates how policy should be formed, while trying to appease both the public and the opposition. Be warned that leading a country is no easy task, and the inept president may soon find his people to demand re-elections, or even have his country sink into the throes of revolution... (shamelessly stolen and re formed slightly from TRP)

    To make things simple, we will use the "vote by bloc" system. This means that Policy will be dictated by the ruling cabinet, but it will first have to be passed through the senate. the leader of each party will vote FOR their party and will have a voting share equal to the number of votes won in the election. coalitions are allowed and encouraged. bribe, compromise, anything to get that 60% majority.

    Elections are open

    Rules, read before playing

    We as host(s) reserve the right to veto any action any player wishes to undertake: To consolidate the stability of the AAR, to stop interference with the normal functioning of the thread or simply because we feel like it

    - Rule 1 of Democracy In Action: Democracy is absolute. Even when the nazi's or communists are elected into office, they will still have to answer to the opposition and face elections every two years

    - Any member is free to establish or join a political party of his choice. A member can only be member of one party at a time, although he is free to switch allegiance whenever he sees fit.

    - Every two ingame years an election shall be held, the first election will be held in March 1936, or in real life, the election will begin when I have the starting events planned out . The week in between will be granted to all parties to organize, unite and campaign to get as many people as they can to vote. Note that everyone registered on the Pdox forums is eligible to vote

    - Parties are allowed to form coalitions. At the end of an election, all votes are tallied and the party or coalition with the largest % of votes wins the election

    - The parties that did not win will be sent to opposition, where they can comment on the policy of the leading faction. We will monitor opposition closely, and the leading player has to understand that failing to appease the public will lead to us penalizing Germany ingame(dissent, economic shortages). It is therefore very important to listen to the public, who can demand re-elections as well. In addition the opposition can make plans to subvert the government using *string pulls* that will change the game, and might bring the opposition into a better light.

    - The winning party or coalition will come into office the ingame update after the elections. They will have to put forward three leading figures for the government: A President of the Republic, Army Affairs Minister and Internal Affairs Minister. These three people, backed up by their party members, will be responsible for making decisions ingame. We will PM the President personally before each play session, where he has to dictate us the course The USA takes

    - Every reader (including players) has two votes in the election. Putting in two votes for a single party is not allowed. However, if parties want to play it smart they'll seek coalition with a like-minded party so players can put two votes into their front

    - It is strictly forbidden to campaign outside of the EPU thread (spamming up other threads): This is unacceptable behaviour that will risk getting you banned and is in clear violation of both the forum rules and Realpolitik rules. All parties found doing this will not ongly be punished by the moderator, but will face being excluded from voting. RealPolitik had issues with this. Even though i spend my every waking hour here I still need to sleep. Ad hominem attacks, blind rhetoric and the like will NOT be tolerated. If you chose to infringe upon this rule you (and your party) will be punished.

    - The hosts (Alexon47 and affiliates) retain full right to ban any party that has violated these rules. Spamming parties, parties inciting hate or parties that are found obtrusive for the normal functioning of this thread will be banned from the elections indefinitely.

    - Id humbly ask you not spam my PM box, any questions can be directed through my msn alexjbyrne@hotmail.com


    - By voting, joining a party or performing any other form of interaction with this AAR, you declare that you have read and understood these rules to the letter. We don't want to be jerks guys, so keep it clean!


    Stolen and reworded from TRP, original AAR concept is also the property of Totally Random Productions

    OFFICIAL DEBATE RULES

    The ruling party/coalitions leader will post his idea of policy. Each individual is allowed to make TWO posts addressing concerns or bringing forward a criticism. The ruling leader is allowed to respond to these and will then call a vote. Individuals will be assumed to vote with their party leaders unless expressing dissent in the following format.

    I ___ do not vote with my party ____ and vote (yes/no) to issue ____

    All debate is to be in character, and ad hominem attacks and the like will be crushed...brutally.

    Hammerhand Party

    Economic Conservative


    The Hammerhand Party is founded on the belief that American ingenuity and innovation in industrial, social, and political spheres has placed her in a position to become a dominant world leader. In particular, the American economy is a complex, powerful entity, driving social and political trends before it.

    Economically, the party will endeavour to enforce her industrial system based on private enterprise on other nations, particularly in N. America/S. America, trading American support and technical know-how for the alignment, support, and raw materials of minor powers. Industrially, she will be led by large corporations and conglomerates organized by Liberal government departments (Free trade, interior, public works, etc.)

    Militarily, the growth of the US forces will be a direct correlation to her strength vis-a-vis her American hegemony. When America begins to dominate the Western Hemisphere, her fighting forces will represent her ability to impose US ideology.

    Politically, the Hammerhands will butt heads with the socialists, who will seek to redistribute the hard earned wealth of innovative Americans to undeserving immigrants and malingerers. Minor Powers in South America may find Hammerhand methods to be somewhat self-serving, and may seek to break free of US hegemony. This would mean discarding American protection and technological know-how in favor of national freedom.

    I don't know the leaders of Kaiserreich very well. Someone who does may be able to provide some input. Armaments minister should be drawn from a large private or semi-private corporation. Foreign Minister should provide a bonus to trade deals and influence at the cost of increased expense (more technology and expertise being exported). Head of State would have a bonus to forming Alliances at the expense of decreased belligerence decay. I will try and look up the appropriate minister classifications (guns-or-butter, man of the people, etc.

    Edit:
    Head of State: Resigned Generalissimo
    Head of Government: Ambitious Union Boss
    Foreign Minister: Idealogical Crusader
    Armaments Minister: Resource Industrialist




    United American Party
    Social Conservative

    Together We are Unbeatable, Unbreakable and Unstoppable

    The united American Party wants total freedoms for all races and wishes to liberate all oppressed people by tyrants who don't believe in freedom toward the people. We serve America first and support a more powerful America by getting all parties to stand on a united goal. we do not oppose leftest ideas but stand in the right due to more conservatist ideas. Our goal is to create a strong America and then a free world! We support a council as our HoS because it does not centralize power but the head of the council will represent it as president. Contact me for Council seats! I will not be the permeate leader and every 2 years in the game the council elects a new leader to head them so any one can have a chance.

    On life's journey
    Faith is nourishment,
    Virtuous deeds are a shelter,
    Wisdom is the light by day and
    Right mindfulness is the protection by night.
    If a man lives a pure life nothing can destroy him;
    If he has conquered greed nothing can limit his freedom.

    The Buddha


    Namaste, my fellow American citizens.

    In the last few years, our people have faced hunger, poverty, conflict, and sorrow.

    We, the humble Buddhist monks of the few monasteries in the United States, ask humbly to shine light on a path for this nation in avoiding such suffering in the future. We offer, the Buddhist Peace Party. Our numerous actions in providing welfare for Americans in the major cities of the West and East Coast, are only a small part of our larger commitment to all.

    Foreign Policy:

    We, as Buddhists and Pacifists, seek to abandon aggressive intervention into other nations. We shall gladly provide any form of humanitarian assistance to the rest of the citizens of the world, but we shall not be engaged in partisan violence or denial of human aid. We are all brothers and sisters, for we all share the same hopes and fears.


    We are all united, as one woven in Indra's Net.

    Domestic Policy:

    1. Ensure all are well-fed, well-clothed, and have well-being. We have a moral obligation, to ensure all members of this nation are well taken care of.

    2. Ensure that all are safe, provide a restorative justice court in order to maintain equality.

    3. Get rid of the army, the navy, and the air force. We should recognize violence, is not the answer to any of our problems. But rather constructive dialog, and working to understand others is.

    4. Maintain territorial integrity, resist aggression in non-violent ways. We will hold and govern all territories that want to be governed. If any part of our union wishes to leave, they may as long as a plebiscite is taken.

    In short, because we have recognized that suffering is caused by undue interference and influence, disrupting Indra's Net, that we advocate what we advocate.

    -May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be well!

    The National Social Popular Revolver Party of Progressive Democracy (NSPRPPD)

    America need a new deal, a combination of socialist reforms, nationalist fervor and Protestant morality. America must crush Syndicalism ans Autocracy and choose the enlightened path of democracy, socialism, nationalism and Protestantism.

    Our neighbours are backward nations under incompetent rule; Mexico is ruled by sinful Syndicalism, Canada by british monarchist impotents and Cuba by regressive Latinos. America must take her place as the ruler of the Continent.

    Vote for Democratic Socialist Nationalism! Vote National Social Popular Revolver Party of Progressive Democracy!!





    Notional Secessionist Federation of the West.
    (National Populist)


    The NSFW is mainly party devoted to the idea of the Pacific States seceding from the Union. They're a far right organisation with several known links to Paramilitary organisations, including the Idaho Militia Movements, the Oregonian Patriot League and the No-Cal Separation Army.

    This organisation has it's own paramilitary movement - as well as a fortified compound about 27 miles south-east of Spokane. The NSFW agitates against the Union saying that in of late, the Herbert Hoover Government has dragged down the West Coast by shackling it to the economic burdens imposed by the effects of the depression. In short, they desire GLORY for Californ-i-a and associated states.

    Hammerhand Party

    Economic Conservative


    The Hammerhand Party is founded on the belief that American ingenuity and innovation in industrial, social, and political spheres has placed her in a position to become a dominant world leader. In particular, the American economy is a complex, powerful entity, driving social and political trends before it. The USA is in possession of vast agricultural, industrial, and human resources. All that is required to seize global trade from the German Empire (besides, of course, unity at home) is the right approach to foreign policy. Proof of this idea is the recent surge in trade between the so-called West Coasters and Japan, an area where Germany has a lesser influence.

    Economically, the party will endeavour to enforce her industrial system based on private enterprise on other nations, particularly in N. America/S. America, trading American support and technical know-how for the alignment, support, and raw materials of minor powers. Industrially, she will be led by large corporations and conglomerates organized by Liberal government departments (Free trade, interior, public works, etc.)

    Militarily, the growth of the US forces will be a direct correlation to her strength vis-a-vis her American hegemony. When America begins to dominate the Western Hemisphere, her fighting forces will represent her ability to impose US ideology. America will continue to look inwards until such time as a true Union is re-forged, however.

    Politically, the Hammerhands will butt heads with the socialists, who will seek to redistribute the hard earned wealth of innovative Americans to undeserving immigrants and malingerers. Minor Powers in South America may find Hammerhand methods to be somewhat self-serving, and may seek to break free of US hegemony. This would mean discarding American protection and technological know-how in favor of national freedom.
