September, 1791. On the eve of elections to the first French assembly, the Revolution is still far from accomplished. The National Legislative Assembly is fledgling and untested; the new Constitution irks the radicals as much as the rightists; a conservative reaction is brewing amongst the army and the aristocracy; and the King himself remains in power, isolated but not impotent. All the eyes of Europe are on Paris, to see whether this novel exercise in popular rule will end in triumph, or failure. But not all countries are content to let events pan out: France’s neighbours fear for their own authority, and even liberal Britain – though sympathetic to the revolutionary cause – remains hostile to French power and influence. If the revolution is to succeed, its champions shall have to chart a careful course, to avoid inflaming opposition at home and abroad, while still preserving the gains of the people. The destiny of the republic is in their hands.

Game Summary

You are the political leaders of Revolutionary France in the late 18th century. It is your goal to lead your faction to victory (and by extension, France). How you achieve this, is up to you. You will compete for parliamentary dominance, control of the government and national prestige.

This game is not bound by history: from the very beginning, the course of the revolution shall be decided by player activity rather than by pre-determined events. You will respond to developments or you can instigate them. Updates will come in several forms: Election Updates, which are self-explanatory; General Updates, which give you an overview of the situation in France; War Updates, should France become embroiled in war; and Popular Updates, informing you of the mood of the people. In public, players will draft legislation to advance your faction's agenda; behind closed doors, you will plot to improve your faction's influence by any means necessary. The fate of France rests on the players - they may guide her to glory, or run her into ruin.

Aside from the Assembly, there shall also the Cabinet, lead by the First Minister, which will be responsible for the administration of France. Appointed by the King but answerable to parliament and thus the people, they must tread a thin line between appeasing their royal master and appease their popular electors. The King himself shall be a player character, who shall have to contend with the Assembly and the Constitution.

This game owes a debt to Frymonmon's Crisis in the Reichstag and Thunderhawk3's Shadow of the Andes for inspiration and borrowed templates.

Rules and Regulations

IC, OOC and Civility

All posts in this thread, with the exception of character applications and enquiries, should be IC. As a rule, there must be no OOC comments unless it is a question to the GM on game mechanics, which should be phrased in double brackets ((example)). Certainly, OOC should never be used to comment on another player, to question their actions or to support an IC argument. Obviously, this game will feature heated political rhetoric, but please make sure that your IC speech cannot be construed as a personal attack on another player and reassure others if they feel that this is the case. Above all, stay on good terms with your fellow players so that everyone will have a good time. Remember that you are playing to have fun, and not just to win.

Note that this game is a political simulation based on the French Revolution. By definition, it will be a bloodbath. You may be betrayed by friends and allies; your character may be subject to impeachment, detention and assassination. Random events may disrupt your agenda and your preferred faction or government may fall or be overthrown through no fault of your own. You have to accept that this will happen and appreciate it as the fun of the game.

Please always recall that this is a game, and more than that a role-playing game; nothing should be taken personally. And obviously, always obey the rules of the forum as set by moderators.

The Players and their Characters​

"What is the Third Estate? Everything. What has it been hitherto in the political order? Nothing. What does it desire to be? Something."

Every political, military and religious position shall be filled by players in the form of characters. With the exception of the Royal Family, all characters must be original and ahistorical. Contrary to the epigram, they can come from any sector of the population: clergy, nobility and bourgeoisie. But your background is not meaningless; it affects how you are perceived by other deputies and the people.

To create a character, you must post the following character template, like so:

Name: Napoleon Bonaparte
Date of Birth: 15 August, 1769
Estate: Second
Religion: Catholic
Culture: Corsican
Biography: A lowly second-lieutenant who'll probably never amount to much.​

Just as in the real revolution, rhetoric and oration shall be decisive factors. Players align themselves with political parties, but they represent only one vote; their real power comes from persuading other (NPC) deputies into supporting their cause, by targeted appeals to emotion, principle or pure pragmatism. A successful debater can even convince deputies from other parties if his arguments are sound enough. The more political achievements a character has under his belt, and the higher the office they obtain, the greater their influence in the Assembly: the First Minister will always command more respect than a random deputy, for example.

The National Legislative Assembly​

"For the establishment of liberty and the safety of the nation, one day of anarchy will do more than ten years of National Assemblies."

The sole legislative organ of the State to which all characters belong. Any member may introduce a bill for the consideration of the Assembly. The Assembly also scrutinises the conduct of the King and his ministers and has powers to override their decisions. The Legislative Assembly shall be subject to mandatory elections every two years. Aside from that, the Assembly may voluntarily dissolve itself by a simple majority. Players will choose a faction at the beginning of an election. They will be bound to this faction for the remainder of that parliamentary session, unless their character is killed.

The Government​

"The principle of any sovereignty resides essentially in the Nation. No body, no individual can exert authority which does not emanate expressly from it."

Under the Constitution, the King shall appoint the Cabinet First Minister. All ministers are responsible to him and serve at his pleasure. Nonetheless, they are still answerable to the Assembly, which they must furnish with updates and annual accounts.

The Cabinet is composed thusly:

First Minister – responsible for the entire Cabinet
Lord Chancellor – responsible for the judiciary
Controller-General of Finances – responsible for the budget
Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs – responsible for diplomacy
Secretary of State for War – responsible for the army, fortifications and the border
Secretary of State of the Navy – responsible for the navy and naval infrastructure
Lieutenant-General of Police – responsible for public order
Archbishop of Paris –responsible for the Catholic Church in France​

Under the Constitution, the King of the French has superior authority, especially with respect to the armed forces, diplomacy and the maintenance of public order. It is the will of the Assembly, however, that the King defers to the judgement of his ministers on these all matters.

Ministers must present a plan for their ministry at the start of every parliamentary session. The Controller-General must also formulate a budget each year. The Archbishop must be from the Second Estate. The First Minister is the head of the Cabinet and its liaison with the Assembly. Ministers will be responsible for all policy decisions relevant to their ministry.

Being a minister grants a character prominence and authority, giving their words more weight in the Assembly and with the people. It also offers the opportunity to declare a coup (see later) and to exploit your ministry for political purposes; the War Secretary might embezzle funds to aid his faction or a corrupt Chancellor might persecute his opponents, etc.

The People of France​

"Any institution which does not suppose the people good, and the magistrate corruptible, is evil."

In principle, the people have delegated their authority to the delegates of the Assembly; in practice, they are the sole source of power in Revolutionary France. They are roughly divided in their allegiance: the affluent tend to favour the moderate democrats, the intellectuals and their commoner allies the radical republicans, and the rural peasantry and parishes the old order.

Periodic updates of the popular mood will indicate how they feel about pressing issues of the day and particular parties, factions and clubs. Deputies are warned to take heed; this does not just affect elections. The people will be a constant, non-player-controlled influence in this game. They can be stirred up by agitators or placated by parliament. If sufficiently riled, they may turn against the Assembly altogether. Should you try and pass unpopular laws over the heads of the people, there will be repercussions…

Coups, Insurrections and Civil Unrest​

"Liberty, equality, fraternity, or death; - the last, much the easiest to bestow, O Guillotine!"

There are three categories of extraparliamentary activity: coups, insurrections and civil unrest.

Any general or minister can declare a coup to change the government or the political system. The success of the coup will be dependent on their office and their accomplices; a general can (usually) depend on his army to obey his orders, while the Lieutenant-General of Police can exploit the police forces answerable to him. Coups are more easily controlled than insurrections and have set objectives, but they do not have popular backing and are reliant on the plotters themselves. When a coup is declared, every other general or minister must declare either for or against it (or abstain).

Any character may call for an insurrection. The success of this call will be dependent on their personal standing, their public perception and their argument. The more players that support the call, the more likely it is to be successful and the greater the strength of the insurrection. A long-standing and leading member of the Assembly with a bevy of supporters and an eloquent argument will have a greater chance at instigating an insurrection than a novice with neither. If successfully instigated, an insurrection will generally follow the principles of its instigator but cannot be controlled and has an unforeseeable outcome.

Unlike coups or insurrections, civil unrest is not controlled by the players. It may occur randomly or in response to character actions. Players may choose to deliberately stir up unrest to undermine their opponents, or to ruthlessly suppress it to uphold stability. If unrest becomes so great that it triggers outright rebellion, players may choose whether to side with or against it (no abstentions).

Participants in coups, insurrections and rebellions risk death during and after the events. This is a serious consideration, as character death will forfeit your influence in the Assembly and your popularity as your new character will have neither. If a faction is implicated in a failed coup, its popularity and electoral prospects will suffer.

The King of the French​

"'Little by little, the old world crumbled, and not once did the king imagine that some of the pieces might fall on him."

Louis XVI Louis-Charles I, held in rather luxurious confinement in the Tuileries Luxembourg Palace. While ostensibly the supreme authority in the Constitution, the King is a prisoner to parliament and the people. But He is far from helpless; he receives a steady stream of conspirators, both from the royalist and moderate camps, and though he retains the support of vast swathes of the countryside. The Palace is as much a fortress as a prison, protecting himself and most of his family and providing an epicentre for counter-revolutionary activity.

Under the Constitution, France is a Parliamentary Monarchy Crowned Republic. The King still retains his powers to appoint commanders of the armies, declare war, direct the war effort, allocate military assets and make treaties. the First Minister. and his Cabinet is appointed by and accountable only to him. He may also exercise a veto over certain legislation, which can only be overturned by two consecutive sessions of the Assembly.

The King – and his successors, should there be any – will be controlled by a player. Aside from the Constitution, his actions are also constrained by the people; they abducted him from Versailles, and if provoked again, they could do much worse. It is his objective to balance his power with the popular interest. He may choose to reconcile himself to the Revolution, or to try and reverse it. But most importantly, he must try and survive.


All game-related activity should be confined to this thread.

The French Constitution of 1791 is found here, subject to the following amendments:

Universal Suffrage
Crowned Republic
Parliamentary Government
Majority Amendment

Note, however, that I am ignoring certain clauses (such as that which forbids sitting members of the Assembly from entering government) for game reasons. So if your plot depends on powers that you've read in the Constitution, please confirm these with the GM first.

There is an unofficial IRC channel run by Ab Ovo on Coldfront at #France.

I did consider using historical characters, but I wanted to remove the temptation to follow history.

Name: His Most Christian Majesty, Louis XVI, King of the French
Date of Birth: 23 August, 1754
Estate: First
Religion: Devout Roman Catholic
Culture: French
Biography: Originally third in line for the French throne, his father the Dauphin passed away before the death of Louis XV, allowing the young Duc de Berry to succeed him as first in line. Upon Louis' ascension to the throne he initially pursued a liberal policy including financial reforms and the Edict of Versailles; which allowed for greater religious tolerance and was an important step for religious freedom in the country. However a fierce reaction by the nobility and other elites forced him to inept increasingly inept financial advisors, leading to rising discontent and failure. Soon he was overtaken by events and the National Assembly was convoked, the Tennis Court Oath followed, and the storming of the Bastille began the long and sordid tale of the French Revolution.

After being dragged from Versailles to live amongst the people in Paris, the increasingly hostile atmosphere in the city and always-escalating fights with the National Assembly over the most trivial of issues lead for him and his family to attempt the Flight to Varennes in the summer of 1791. The intended goal was safety in the bosom of the Queen's homeland however they were soon identified and arrested. In the aftermath, the Royal popularity rather decreased along with a non-coincidental rise in Republicanism and he remains somewhat of a prisoner in Paris. His support among the countryside remains, if not strong, at least moderately healthy and the simple peasant remains thinking of him as more a benevolent father than the tyrant seen by urbanites.

Name: Édouard-Alexandre Blair (formerly Lord Edward Alexander Densley-Blair)
Date of Birth: 17th June, 1763
Place of Birth: Llyswen, Wales, Great Britain
Estate: Troisième
Religion: Protestant
Culture: Welsh


Born in 1763 as the sixth son of Edward Densley-Blair, 3rd Marquess of Llangoed, Blair was raised as a member of an established Whig family in the British nobility. Never expected to inherit, he was groomed from an early age in preparation for a career in the military, gaining a commission as a Cornet with the newly created 1st Welsh Dragoon Guards in 1784 at the age of 21. He proved a precocious military talent, reaching the rank of Captain by the age of 25.

Deeply Whiggish and with a spirit of romantic adventure, Blair was fascinated by the French Revolution when it broke out in 1789. Largely ignored by his father in favour of his older brothers, he quickly became disillusioned by his life at home, clamouring for the adventure of fighting for liberty. In September, he fled to France to support the Revolution. When fighting began to subside, he remained in the country, settling in the southern city of Marseilles. In 1790, he married Olympe Marie Barbaroux and had his first son, Alexandre-Marie Barbaroux Blair. Later that year, he was elected to the Third Estate.

Originally aligning with those on the left wing, he soon fell out with the radical republican policies of the Jacobins and now identifies as a Feuillant. Aside from his career in politics, he is looking to rejoin a cavalry regiment in the nascent Revolutionary Army.

Name: Sous-lieutenant Vincent Parént
Date of Birth: 15 December, 1770
Estate: Third
Religion: Catholic
Culture: Norman
Biography: A Second Lieutenant of Artillery in the French Army, Vincent was raised by freeholding peasant farmers on their small plot of land south of Caen. The oldest of six brothers, he decided that the best way to bring money to the farm was to join the military. There he showed great merit in the control of artillery, an minor aptitude for ranging and a easy, fraternal bond with the men. Due to these reasons, he was promoted until he reached his current station as Second Lieutenant.

A well meaning person, he has yet to say much on the revolution as he intents to keep a paycheck and his life, but he is thought to harbour revolutionary sympathies.

Name: Father Hugues Jean (Ugs Joans)
Date of Birth: 31 August 1758
Estate: first
Religion: Catholic in the extreme
Culture: Occitan

Biography: A cardinal from the city of Avignon, he saw what the nation was going through and thought he must shepard the nation through this area of unrest. He also holds several important Bishoprics all over the nation.
((Cardinals are not addressed as "Father" and it is impossible to hold several Bishoprics, beyond one's "normal see" {Avignon, for instance} or, in unusual instances, an accompanying titular see; usually in non-Christian countries. However, in countries where the Crown, rather than the Papacy, retained right of investiture, this could be changed. I believe France may have the right of secular investiture {indeed, since the title of Abp. of Paris is listed as an appointed title, I would assume so} so do furnish a list...))
Name: Paul-Aurélien de St Sebastien, Baron d’Harfleur
Estate: Second
Born: 3 December 1768
Religion: Catholic
Culture: Norman
Bio: The eldest child of Jean-Michel, Baron d'Harfleur, Paul-Aurélien was groomed from an early age to take control over the St Sebastien's family estates upon the passing of his father; his youth was largely relegated to studying mathematics, history, and other rather dull and stodgy subjects, as well as fencing, riding, hunting, etc. etc. A child during the American Revolution, and largely disinterested in the happenings of Paris, he nonetheless dutifully succeeded his father in 1790, and found himself thrust into an increasingly unstable kingdom. Largely considered a staunch monarchist, though possessing some Feuillantist tendencies, the newly installed Baron is likely in over his head as the chaos reaches new heights everyday.

Name: René Leon
Date of Birth: 30 September, 1765
Estate: Third
Religion: Catholic
Culture: Lyonnais

Biography: Born to a poor merchant in Lyon, he desired to have a say in the new liberal government and after a hard campaign won his election. Politically, René finds himself agreeing most with the Jacobins, though as he is new to politics this may quickly change.
Name: Antoine Durand
Date of Birth: April 20th, 1770
Estate: Third
Religion: Deist
Culture: Parisian


Biography: The son of a prosperous tax-farmer and owner of a small clothing shop in Paris, Antoine Durand was educated by tutors and studied at the Sorbonne where he was introduced to the philosophers of the Enlightenment. Currently he manages his father's businesses after his death two years ago. With the arrival of the revolution he has dedicated his resources and energies toward tearing down the Ancient Regime.
Name: Per Le Goff [French Trans: Pierre Le Goff]
Date of Birth: August 3rd, 1760
Estate: Third
Religion: Catholic
Culture: Breton


Enlisting into the French Army at 16, Le Goff served the majority of his service in North America fighting the British alongside the Continental Army. As an infantryman, Le Goff was recognized as an admirable soldier, not necessarily as a warrior, but as an inspiring comrade-in-arms to his fellow peers. Staying until the age of 30, Le Goff returned to a divided and tense homeland, wherein he decided he would pursue a new career in politics. Although it took him a few years to develop himself from soldier to speaker, Le Goff found himself an elected member of the National Legislative Assembly.

Although possessing a revolutionary and populist spirit, as a Breton, Le Goff is wary of certain Radical notions - specifically ones that advocate the destruction of Brittany's privileges and the militant anti-clerical tint of the Left.

Charles-Pierre-François Augereau
October 21 1757
Third Estate
Pierre Augereau was born in Faubourg Saint-Marceau, Paris, as the son of a Parisian fruit seller (in some accounts, a servant). He enlisted in the army at the age of seventeen in the Clare Infantry Regiment, but was soon discharged. Later he joined the dragoons. He became a noted swordsman and duellist, but he had to flee France after killing an officer in a quarrel. For the next 13 years he drifted across Europe. He claimed to have served in the Russian army against the Ottoman Empire, afterwards deserting. He enlisted in the infantry regiment of Prince Henry of Prussia and said he served in the Prussian Foot Guards as well. He deserted by masterminding a mass escape and reached the border of Saxony where he taught fencing.
In 1781, King Louis XVI of France proclaimed an amnesty for deserters, so Augereau returned to his native land. He joined the cavalry in 1784, and after serving in the carabiniers he was sent to the Kingdom of Naples as part of a military mission.

I think you will find it all very familiar. Welcome aboard!

I'll hold off for a little longer before I post the first update.
Liberté, égalité, fraternité!

People of Paris, the time is ripe!
The time to do away with the nobles and the clergy, to do away with this tyrannical King! Let us have a Republic and be truly free citizens, no more subjects to be chained by traditions and Monarchy!
