Hello everyone,

I've decided to open a new RP in this forum. My idea was something new and different - let a player assume the role of a country's president, and let the players negotiate and face their opponents. As being the president, they will fly over to meetings, talk to their ministers, create their domestic and foreign policies and so on and so forth.

I've got two questions for all of you out there - one, would you participate in such an RP? (if not - why?) and two - if you ARE interested, I have two scenarios available - one takes place in 1991, where the Berlin wall didn't fall and Gorbachev was assassinated, and the cold war is going at full swing.
The second is something I put together. It takes place in the year 2024, when a series of unfortunate events made the USA become totalitarian, gather allies and take on the modern west. I'll give more details later on, should you be interested.

So, what's it gonna be? 1991, 2024 or neither?

Alright, Alright. In that case, I'll use my plan B - I will make a post-fallout war, noone really remembers what happened or why. Technologies are reduced almost to none, but all the world's nations are gone. Then comes a time of restoration, in which nations begin to reestablish, and each player can take over a new, completely different than today, fiction state. Is that alright?

and Darkreever, I accept your descision but I really can't see why this is offensive. the 1991 scenario is just cold war settings. the rest is determined by the players. also, the 2024 one doesn't just make "evil Americans from space" - they have a good reason to be that way (hint: nuke and serious economic difficulty), and their affairs will also be run by a dedicated, serious player. But... suit yourself.
And I never pointed out religion. It doesn't really matter in my RP.
Every nation could be changed according to world state and standings. I'm israeli - I don't mind letting RP's israel be destroyed or become totalitarian, if that would make it even to you. Things like that COULD happen, and looking back on history - nations becoming totalitarian or paternal autocrat isn't such a crazy idea.

Sorry if I insulted anyone, surely, this was not my goal.

Alright, then it's settled. I'll create A whole new world, with fictional countries, leaders etc. Making a map's a pain, though.

Just one last thing about what you said, BlackApostleVilhelm - I really disagree with you, although I can see your point. the USA became totalitarian for an actual reason (a good one, too). It is NOT an antagonist. There is no antagonist in world diplomacy. And supposedly, a player would lead that county too. Just so you know - I invented a whole system of controlling the players - they can't go crazy, they have to be politicians. If someone wants to destroy nation X just because he doesn't like it - he's out of here. The fun thing about real-world politics is that there is no good and evil. But suit yourself...

All you interested, wait a few days, and a recruitment thread for my RP will be open.

Edit: IT REALLY IS a pain to make a map. If anyone knows some good random world map generator or anything like it - please PM me. I'd be happy if it's alright to use our world map only with fictional countries etc.

What I have in mind is a fictional world where not only you can select your country, you can choose its policies and world standings. I can't seen to get past that stupid map obstacle... I'm really not up for making one myself, both because it'd look silly and it would take quite a lot of time.

Sorry for double-posting, but...

Ladies and gentlemen, I think I have it!
It grew out to be something completely different then it was. The theme will not be 40k, but something close to that.

All of you come from advanced, space-faring civilizations that came to find a planet that is almost an exact duplicate of earth when it comes to terrain and landscape. With atmosphere, an abundance of natural goods and colonization space, and the fact that there are currently no life on it makes the earth a wanted planet. You all came here, military leaders, with given resources and a small-sized army to secure the planet and cultivate it so that later, pioneers can come to live on the planet and companies can exploit local resources. You all have but one problem - each other...
Make alliances, fight and use deception. You can always ask your emperors for more resources - operate poorly and you're sure to be replaced...

I'll open the recruitment thread very soon.

Thanks for the advice Farseer Darvaleth - but it's all ready and set.

My new RP is open. I'm afraid it's not really what you said (which also makes a good idea!) - it DOES involve space travel and futuristic techs. Just not strictly Warhammer.
