Hello! Welcome to World in Revolution: 2020! This game is the brainchild of both myself, Frymonmon and my friend, Red Cesar. I present this forum game for your enjoyment. After seeing the success of World in Revolution: 1861, World in Revolution 1900, World in Revolution: 1836, I have decided to branch out into the modern era. Due to the fact that only I shall be moderating this game, there shall be a small amount of players.
Nation Registration: OPEN/Closed
Nations Taken: 15/50
The basic idea of this game is that it is that after another Financial Collapse in 2016, the World as we know it is currently devolving into revolts and riots. Greece, long standing as the country with riots and other problems, has finally broken out into full Revolution. After the collapse of several unity Governments, The People's Association – Golden Dawn, a Fascist Party, gained political control in Greece. One of their first acts was to spurn the European Union, and Germany, which had been calling for Austerity. In the European Union, only Germany stands as the dominant power, as the French Republic under François Hollande saw the economy shrink, and falter. While not collapsed, the French Republic ambles along, selling bonds at sky-high interest rates, most of which Germany buys. The United Kingdom, under Prime Minister Nigel Farage, has withdrawn from the European Union and is experiencing its own Recession. China, India, and Brazil are all rising powers, while the world's lone Superpower, the United States of America, remains on the decline under President Hillary Clinton.
Rules & Procedures
The rules are fairly simple. As the leader of your nation, you send the orders you wish to do to me, Frymonmon. The orders you choose are basically unlimited, your only restraints are the time period and your imagination. This means, if you want to hatch a crazy plan of trapping African Gorillas and letting them loose in Washington, D.C. well. Go ahead. If you want to build a Faster-Than-Light Spaceship in 2030, it's not going to happen. Keep in mind, you can trade with other nations, create secret treaties, wage war and all of that fun stuff. Also, Nuclear Weapons. But don't use them.
Each turn will constitute a single year. We start off on January 1st, 2020. I do not forsee any reason to speed up or slow down the game. It's been in the rules since WiR 1861, but it's never been done so this is just filler space to make the original post look longer than it really is.
Now, what is your main goal in this entire game? Guide your nation through this turbulent era. This basically means you will need to try and survive this huge uprising and economic crisis facing the world today. World in Revolution takes into account for your population. Although you can ignore these movements and even suppress them, you should keep them in mind. This is to make sure the game is kept to a degree of realism. This will not be an absolute strict restraint on your nation, but it will be an underlying factor. World in Revolution is built on the underlying factors, which the GMs take care of, don't worry. At any time you can ask the GM the "Mood of your nation", and you can request a run down from me.
In this game, if you Leader gets voted out, and is not replaced by someone of the same party or your chosen successor, you will be removed from the game. You may not re-join once this has been done unless I approve it.
If you are going to post something In Character (IC) then you simply post in the thread, using a flag if you wish to help others know what nation is speaking. If you are saying something Out Of Character (OOC) then you must add the tag "OOC:" before your post. If you do not do so, your post WILL be taken as IC, and can be used against you by other players in IC.
A Nation shall submit their orders to me via Private Message. In the title of this message it MUST have your countries name and the date, as well as the months this order is for. For example, for the United Kingdom at the game's start, it would read "WiR - United Kingdom 2020"
The orders are fairly simple. Every nation is allowed to send me 4 orders of any kind encompassing anything. However, there is a twist. If your nation is at war, you get a supplemental "War Plan". You must clarify what is your War Plan, and you are entitled to using 4 lines or sentences to describe what you want done. In order to try and make sure I remain sane (That's a funny one.), and can produce updates, each nation is limited to using only two sentences for their orders. The 4 normal orders can only be two lines long.
There are two types of updates. A Normal Update encompasses on entire year. This is the largest update and most of the action takes place here. Wars, Diplomacy, Nation Building ect. The next type of update is a War Update. A Mini-Update is similar to the Normal Update, but it takes place alongside of the Normal Update, and it uses up normal orders. This can encompass anything a Normal Update normally would, but is generally more specific, such as details of a specific battle in a war, or turmoil in a country that would normally get two lines in the Normal Update.
* All Mobilization by countries must be announced 24 Hours before the official order deadlines.
* Declarations of War are final, and cannot be taken back. Only a Peace Treaty may resolve the conflict
