The Civil WarThe Japanese civil war shall be fought between two factions:
Inperial Japan: Led by the Privy Council and Prime Minister Kishiwada. The capital shall be Edo
Militarist Japan: Led by the Supreme War Council headed by General Yamagata. The capital shall be Kyoto
The first stage of the civil war is declaring loyalty to either the Imperials or the Militarists. This is simply done by a vote.
The second stage shall be building of arms and spreading dissent. This shall be the longest section of the civil war, and shall last about 5 in-game years. Events shall pop up for both factions as each faction tries to undermine the other. Politicians can be used to spread disent against the opposing side or raise national pride to get more soldiers. Economists can use business connections and hurt economic aspects of the other country, hurting their money supply. The armies assigned to each side shall be fully restored and armed to the max to start off each side balanced. Militarists whether NPC or players shall be assigned to fight and lead armies.
The third stage is fighting the war. It will be a tactical war, where both sides tell me how to fight, similar to the Boshin War. This time though, with two separate nations at war, the battles will not be decided by dice or luck or subjective views. The war shall be to annexed the other and shall follow in-game Warscore. Whoever wins the in-game war wins the civil war.
The Northern Army and half of the Imperial guard shall go to the Imperials, the Southern Army and the other half of the guard shall go to the Militarists. The colonial armies are free to pick their side.
Tonight shall start the vote for loyalties
