Sorry everyone but I am going to have to reign in and say no to this idea. Remember that at the core of the matter, this RP will be about political and religious stuff (even if some of it may delve into fiction) and that belongs in World New and Current Events.

I have already got multiple messages from members who find this offensive or crossing a thin line.


Do not be surprised if this thread is locked or gone in the near future. And again sorry Fog Of War, while you are free to do RP's that pertain to other things there are just some things that we cannot go with in the end.



And before any of you decide to complain about this, or to whine, or whatever. All said and done this does devolve into a political thread, something that is out of the correct section and therefore placing any member of the staff within their right to remove it without the courtesy of an explanation beyond: no.

Lets see:

1991, where the Berlin wall didn't fall and Gorbachev was assassinated, and the cold war is going at full swing.
Alright so if you do the one from 1991 then its all about politics, and current events, and possibly the impact all this has on nations and religions and so on and so forth. Yeah your talking about an alternate timeline and delving into the realm of fiction but its 'recent' political and religious stuff. Not something that takes place almost forty thousand years in the future where god knows what could have happened.


2024, when a series of unfortunate events made the USA become totalitarian, gather allies and take on the modern west.
Once again gonna lead to politics and the impact of it and religion; come on now we aren't even delving into alternate reality but what can be construed as speculation into the future.


However, the important thing to keep in mind here is that regardless of which is chosen, this RP becomes a thread about politics and the like.

The Rules said:
Political and Religious topics are to be discussed in the World News & Current Events and Endgame forums only. ... ...Any topics or posts outside of this forum will be deleted immediately by the Moderators.
Notice anything important in the heading of that rule? In the end, roleplay thread is still a part of Heresy, it still abides by all the rules, and threads are still focused on a topic. Yeah in roleplay threads our topics are focused on a story and the discussion is members playing out that story but it is still a thread discussing a topic.



Now, if someone wants to run an RP that deals with 'politics' in the 40k universe then by all means go ahead. Anyone who even tries to claim that they have any relation or bearing on anything in the current or near future of the real world is grasping at straws. But just like any other section of Heresy that is not one of the two above, threads about current events, religion, or politics do not belong.



Call me stupid but I don't see how this is offensive at all????
Well if you insist, but not because you don't actually see how an RP that is supposed to be about current world politics can be offensive or against the rules or anything. Maybe for the overuse of things like question marks and exclamation points; because using more than one actually denotes some sort of greater importance. Yeah right.. :rolleyes:
