  1. Football's coming home, and that's reminded me that we're coming up on the 2022 Wurld Cup. Last time out, the victors were the Sunset Sea Islands. Since they can't host the tournament for obvious reasons, I figure we can open it up for applications like they do IRL. Additionally, we can replicate the continental tournaments as qualifiers - or, if there aren't enough nations, it can be a sort of warm-up tournament. By my reading of the map, Argis is the only continent with enough active players to host a tournament - the rest of you lot would have to group up. Yuck. I'm happy to take the lead on Argis, and I understand @Oyus has an interest in handling things too, so between the both of us we can figure out the qualifiers stage and prepare for the 2022 Wurld Cup. I suppose this post is just putting the feelers out - seeing who's interested and who would participate. We can use a match generator for the fixtures, we have lineup builders, and kit designers. Calendar: Now - July 18: gauging interest, menial behind-the-scenes planning July 19 - end of July: tournament planning & buildup August: tournaments start & finish For now, we can see where we're at with active participants so we can see which continents need grouping together to have enough teams. Let's get ready for a summer of football!
  2. IC topic here: http://www.europans.com/topic/4364-the-antargic-treaty/ Reasons Three claims in 24 hours is perhaps a bit much, don't you think? Topic of discussion A good way to keep everyone happy and to keep activity up is organising a RP conference about an Antargic Treaty. Something to divvy up the terrority, while also leaving room for others. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antarctic_Treaty_System Check RL for inspiration. http://www.ats.aq/e/ats.htm If possible I would like to safeguard some area for future claimants in Marenesia and Aurelia, the two continents which are closest. Parties involved People to invite (in order of appearance): ISTC EOS @The Eurofuhrer everyone else involved Takes the lead If they are willing, I wish to leave this in the capable hands of the ISTC. Please take this opportunity to RP the negotiations. It will be much more interesting than just OOC. It can also reveal some nice IC drama for us to re-use later.
  3. So the OOC thread is here and I'm going to take my time here to explain exactly what I'd want to happen. What is Ceris? Ceris is the large island west of the island of Seylos and south of Derthalen. It's a complicated placed populated by a variety of nations and peoples. It's defining features are that of a poor and unstable place with frequent conflict between these nations. It is also home to the Ceriser culture, a rugged group of people formed long ago after Anglish, Alban, Cymrian, and Germanic cultures intertwined while settling the land. Below the surface, a forgotten threat has already begun to sink its teeth into the societies of Ceris. Who Are the Sentists? The Sentists were a radical cult formed over a year ago and made their appearance in the Dolch See Halloween RP. The nations of @Seylos, @Fulgistan, and Adaptus engaged with the mysterious seafaring pirates on the open ocean only for them to disappear again. The only thing known of their faith is that they greatly desire to send a message to their diety, whatever that message may be. They've already infested parts of Ceris and have started to sow chaos, though their involvement isn't strictly known just yet. A Look at Ceris Above I've numbered every territory that could make an appearance in RP's about Ceris. Of course not every one of them needs to make it into the RP or be mentioned at all, but their possibilities are there. I've assembled a Google Doc giving a brief description of each country and what it may be like at the onset of the RP. Click Here To Look At It (For the moment ignore numbers 26-31. They are only there if we need them in the future) How do I join? Won't this cause war with Seylos if I get involved? The majority of the island is of the Ceriser culture, and while distantly related to the main Seylosian cultures, relations between Seylos and these Ceriser countries has been sour. So don't worry! Seylos isn't going to throw a fit (in the beginning at least) over your involvement. As for how to get involved, you can get involved any way you see fit! With the exception of countries that have very xenophobic views almost all of them will accept help in whatever form from a country willing to offer it. These nations are on the brink of collapse and social upheaval and in general are very weak. Once your merry band of adventurers (no matter how big that group is ) gets into Ceris they will have free enough reign to move on with your bit in the story. Just don't forget you may get into conflict with another player's vision for that land. How will the story progress? Through myself. I will be making core story posts for Seylos's own adventure in Ceris and my posts will contain the major events that can effect everyone in the RP simultaneously. However don't let this slow you down, you can effect the world too without my posts. So if you're interested or have any questions that I can clear up go ahead and make a post. This is a very open ended RP and it's a story we can all build together.
  4. Hello everyone, this as many of you know has been in discussion for ages. What is the Alharun War? The Alharun War was a conflict that officially started in 1945 with the declaration of war between Seylos and Gallambria. Of course, the war spread quickly from there as Seylosian Mandate ambitions grew and much of Alharu become embroiled in the conflict, to the extent where much of the fighting occurred in the continent. The History In 1937 in Seylos the Mandate Party was formed in response to a growing idea that Seylos should use it's riches and importance along the trade lines between Europa and the New World as a way to grow its influence, especially by force. By 1939 the Mandate Party had orchestrated a coup and taken control of the government, though much of the Seylosian navy and loyalist forces fled to @Gallambria. In 1942 Seylos annexed @Galahinda which marked the official formation of the Seylosian Mandate. In 1943 Seylos invaded Ceris with intention of conquering the entire island. and in the same year secured the previously Royalist Seylosian city of Kaseka, inside of @Metztlitlaca, causing a diplomatic incident along the way. By 1945 the Seylosian Mandate attacked Gallambira, annexing some of their northern island holdings, only being stopped by a combined Seylosian Royalist and Gallmbrian raid halting ship production. With this, the Mandate turned its conquests to Alharu embroiling itself in a war in the continent for the next several years. Along the way @Salviawould join the Seylosian war attacking Gallambria in Marenisia in a bid to expand its own territories. Several other nations along the way became embroiled in the conflict such as @Oyus and @Eulycea spreading the fighting even farther. So this OOC thread is to mark interest in either joining the RP or any sort of comments that need to be made concerning your own nation's history regarding the conflict.
  5. Link to IC topic I've been working on a draft of a simplified version of the major conventions pertaining to the law of the sea. I'll get into specific provisions later, but this would provide a baseline for maritime law, allowing us to operate for the most part based on the real life rules. My thought is we could RP this convention occurring (and actually debate the couple of interesting noteworthy issues), and then just establish that the many smaller RL maritime rules were subsequently adopted by the international organization created by this convention. My thought is that this convention should happen 1-2 decades after a major global conflict, and should be based in the main port of a major maritime power. Would people be interested in participating? Any ideas on when/where the convention should occur?
  6. References (in order of appearance): Machina Haruspex News Reports (Search Term: "Christians" Gallambrian Response Iverican Response Haru Open Channel Seylosi Response This OOC Planning will service the upcoming "Cussian Humanitarian Coalition" RP which will be posted on the "Affairs" subforum. Questions and inquiries may be posted here. Note that direct involvement with the Coalition must be vetted and confirmed before any IC accepted posts can be made. Indirect involvement for ease of posting may be made through donations or passive aid (e.g asylum pledge, funding, material donation). Once this RP is launched, it will proceed as planned regardless of any late joining parties. --- The action plan draft as of now: Revised Draft PHASE 1 Goal: Evacuate as many persecuted Christians from the Cussian region as possible. Objectives 1. Secure terms of evacuation with MH (Before All Else) 2. Send observers, get statistics 3. Secure investors from NGOs, governments and private citizens 4. Assemble evacuation force (civilian vessels, aircraft, staff) 5. Request pledges from charitable nations for asylum 6. Use Evacuation forces to transport Cussian refugees to designated asylum areas. Scope • Scale: Evacuation of refugees numbering as little as 50,000 to as many as 100,000-200,000 • Duration: 1-2 months IC (action plan Phase 1 only) Notable Caveats • TERMS-This entire plans relies on terms being met with MH gov first. No detailed announcements are to be made until this is secured. • DISPOSITION-Avoid any opportunity for provoking or engaging in combat with MH military personnel while the evacuation is underway. This operation OOC depends on smooth humanitarian action. • PLAN B-Depending on the number of refugees being evacuated, PHASE 2 must be ready to support an overwhelming amount of civilians--many of which may be unemployable or disabled. Action Plan PHASE 1 1. Terms reached with MH a. Must allow civil and military assets to onload refugees. b. Must be guaranteed safety by the MH gov and military forces. c. Must be permitted to retain basic security detail d. Must guarantee suitable berthing while at MH ports/airports 2. Statistics confirmed a. Exact number of refugees confirmed b. Average age & sex confirmed c. Prioritise Women, Children, or Men with complete state documentation (Passport, Birth Certificate, etc.) d. Low Priority: Criminals 3. Investors secured a. Private Citizens, Governments, Corporations b. To reduce strain on governments, attempt as much private donations as possible. 4. Evac force assembled at Norfolk, Seylos. a. Evac fleet will be mustered in groups. Composition: mixed civil liners and lightly armed military vessels. i. Task Group Tagmatium with minimal security detail ii. Task Group Haru with nominal security detail b. Consumable supplies must be maximised. Make use of donations. c. Task Groups will have a queueing procedure. Refugees will be profiled and documented prior to onload. Vessels must be ready to dock, onload, undock, and depart quickly. 5. Evacuation Proper a. Group A "Haru"- must be evacuated directly from MH ports by boat or by plane if possible. b. Group B "Tagmatium"- any number that the Tagmatine Empire can receive temporarily for holding. If Tagmatium can host any number permanently, this group would be divided here. c. Groups will be sent to pre-determined nations that have pledged asylum. Each nation MUST provide exactly how many refugees it is willing to host. 6. Excess/outlying Refugees a. Unaccommodated outliers will be sent to Iverica or Gallambria where they will be given a residency card and shipped to an undefined Terra Nullius area. --- Updates to come.
  7. I was thinking about regional organisations. And the spectrum of sea-based nations came to mind. The working title is GIN: Group of Island Nations. Premise We could discuss common socio-economical topics challenges as economic development, trade and shipping, ecology, fishing, and much more. Because there'd probably be some shared problems and solutions there. Different from those other, land-based neighbours. Leadership. From a practical point of view, perhaps rotating leadership role where the Secretary-General changes every 6 months. Agenda. The Sec-Gen is responsible for organising a conference on 1 topic. That's not too much pressure to post. Look to the PIF for more RL inspiration. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_Islands_Forum Or a similar RP organisation in Forest. https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=392607 Setting. Founding this somewhere in the 1970s would make sense. This would place it after the events taking place in The Law of the Sea (1959). Any interest? Off the top of my head, I'd ask these players if they're interested: @Andalla @Asgeirria @Astriedan @Bulgenstaz @Gallambria @Kipan @Llalta @Little Flau @Miiros @Orioni @Oyus @Pallamara @Sancti Imperii Catholico @Selayar @Seylos @Sunset Sea Islands @Synturia I'll attach a quick poll to gauge the amount of interest. If there is >50% positive votes, this can be considered a viable idea and we move onto establishing further details.
  8. As a reawakening nation within Europa/Eurth, although not a dead race, perhaps not as focused upon the region about them as they might have been. It has been some time since a visit was conducted within the Haru lands, be it for simple curiosity or ventures of trade and economy. Recent events, a war, a return of the old ways, the acknowledgement of old friends and perhaps old enemies, brings the slumbering beast from its reverie once more. The Occident is in a different state then when the Empress first, and the Emperor that followed, had paid attention to it. A new emperor is about to be crowned, banners once more shall rustle in the breeze. Shall this be more of the same, or a different approach to the realm as it knows.
  9. For 2019 I'm planning a small tourism RP. Its focus is to explore the cultures and sights of nations in Argis and Alharu. This will be semi-open depending on which nations grants a tourism visa to my character. The title is a pun on Mr Smith goes to Washington but other than the name this has little to do with politics. Story Mr Hidad Simizi has reached the pension age of 66 years. Unfortunately, his wife of Isla Raisi died in 2014. The couple had been married since 1971. His three children have all left the house. For the last 5 years he has been putting some money aside and now he wants to see the world. He is making plans to visit Argis and Alharu, collectively referred to here as "Alhargis". (If this works out well and Mr Simizi survives the trip, perhaps he might visit more places in the future.) Character Profile Hidad Simizi is a 66-year-old former tradesperson's assistant who enjoys watching television, baking and he is obsessed with photography. His other hobbies include jigsaw puzzles, knitting, football, cycling, donating blood. Backstory. Hidad has three children from his late wife Isla: daughter Halliye (born 1975), daughter Gloriya (born 1980) and son Jabril (born). He grew up in an impoverished working-class neighbourhood. After his mother died when he was young, he was raised by his father. He finished school and then left academia. Hidad's best friend is another tradesperson's assistant called Elmer Oweni who nicknamed him "Lazy Hidad". The two men have a very fiery friendship. He also hangs around with his neighbour Patsy Neali. They enjoy watching television together. Character. He is giving and friendly, but can also be very thick and a bit lazy. He is an Orinese man who defines himself as straight. Appearance. Physically, Hidad is slightly overweight but otherwise in good shape. He is short with brown skin, black hair and black eyes. He has a small moustache. He is allergic to milk. Countries to visit Once it's clear which countries are open to tourism, I'll have him apply for a Visa in each of these nations. If you're open to a visit, please start by filling out this form with additional details. VISA APPLICATION FORM * Requirement: (yes/no) * Max. duration: (days) * Health requirements: (which) TOURISM GUIDE * Top cities: (city names) * Sights worth seeing: (historical buildings, special places, parks) * Cultural events taking place: (what, where, when, how many days) * Getting around: (airlines, public transportation, taxi) * Local cuisine: (what to eat and drink, what to avoid) * Sleeping: (hotels) Itinerary Right now I'm thinking of having him visit Alharu and Argis from west to east. It really depends on which nations are welcoming enough to grant him a tourist Visa. @Andalla Can I start out by having my character travel via Arkhavn? Confirmed visits: Andalla (layover) Fulgistan
  10. The NationStates League is an international association football competition, to be contested by the national teams of UENA (Union des Associations Nationales de Football). The first tournament is due to commence in June 2018, and the winner will be decided in July 2018. The bidding process to select a location for the cup will start in April 2018. Calendar March: Foundation April: hosting bids May: tournament planning June: tournament start July: tournament finish Tournament Depends on the number of teams we have. If we have 8 teams, it will be an easy bracket of 8 to 4 to 2 teams With 12 teams, we can hold a group phase of 3 teams each, of which the top 2 advance. With 16 teams, the group phase can include 4 teams. Participants If you are interested in participating, please reply with the following information: Team nickname (optional): can be generated using https://www.teamnames.net/fantasy/random-team-name-generator Team colours (2) Team coach Team players: 11 names in total, can be generated using https://www.behindthename.com/random/ Team kit (optional): can be generated using http://dyo.blksport.com/ Team lineup (optional): can be generated using https://www.buildlineup.com/ OOC In 2004 we held our very first football league: the Inter-Europa Football League. Two years later, in 2006, this was continued by the Euro Cup. And now, 12 years later, I want to reboot the idea with a Nations League. We will use the tools and generators already available. To help get this started you can add your team and players. We will also be needing a global headquarters.
  11. OOC: @Fleur de Lys, you weren't contacted about the invitation of these new members because you'd left Europa. You still haven't returned to the Discord, which is where we discussed these changes, so it's very obvious that you weren't consulted. Why would we consult someone that's left the region?
  12. OOC: Only gone in the sense that I don't park my nation here anymore. I visit the forum and RMB quite frequently. After all, I didn't put years of keeping the lights on just to entirely walk away. And just in case anyone was wondering, my nation uses soft Cs, not hard. As such, you pronounce the full name as: vOH Sin Nay, and the capital city as: vOH See Ah. Otherwise, on Discord or as the name I go by most everywhere else "Voc", that's a hard sound, like saying the word "Voke". Anyway, I'd rather do this in a OOC thread, but as there is none, well, gonna do it here. Sorry. For the record, I authorized the use of mentioning Vocenae while visiting the Europa Discord, but I did not, however, authorize full use of it, or characters, named or otherwise, within it. This is a very clear use of another player's IP without permission, and while the scenario surrounding it is different, the problem behind it is no different than is I or any other player decided to go "And a group of corrupt Andallan politicians and soldiers had reached out for supporters of a coup". It's taking control of another player's assets, no matter if they're 'here' or gone entirely and it's not acceptable. Sorry if this comes off as harsh. I've had more than a few people steal things from me and my nation over the years and it's left me more than a little defensive when people take liberties with my stuff. Again, for the record, here is the amount of content that I gave permission for: This was the extent in which I was led to believe you would be mentioning my nation, which again, I gave permission for. I did NOT, however, give permission for use of anything else involving my nation. As such, I'm going to have to ask you to remove all references to my nation, beyond the above, from your post. Again, sorry if this sounds harsh, blunt or mean-spirited. It is not intended that way, but I will defend my IP. And as a basic creative rule, always, ALWAYS try to get permission from another player or if that player no longer exists, use a NPC nation. Don't ever use someone else's property without permission. And if anyone EVER needs to contact me concerning the usage of my nation in an RP, or just RP ideas in general, I am always a simple Telegram, PM or Discord Message away. PLEASE contact me as get my permission before using my nation again in the future. Thank you.
  13. Hello, community. 1. Contest Name The name for this song contest is not yet established. The image above is just one example. Suggestions are welcome. Update: It has been decided that our contest will be called the EurthVision Song Contest. 2. Hosting Bids We're looking for players willing to host an international music competition. Besides having the honour of being the host nation, you will be responsible for providing a venue and welcoming participants. If there are multiple bids to host this event, the person to make the strongest case for their nation will be selected by public vote. Some relevant examples of earlier stories include: 2006 Concert Season by @Vocenae 2017 KavuFest by @Cavunia Update: The single hosting bid we received was from @Prymont. They have the honour of hosting the 2018 event and will be your Game Master for this RP. http://www.europans.com/topic/4753-song-contest-signup/?do=findComment&comment=40008539 3. Contest Signup Why reinvent the wheel? The description of earlier NationStates Song Contests helps explain how a contest like this is run. Here is how to participate: This will also serve as the official participant's signup sheet. Name your participant, and perhaps include an example of their music. YouTube anyone? [b]Nation Name:[/b] Your nation's name goes here. [b]Official Broadcaster:[/b] Your official broadcaster for EV goes here. [b]Song Title:[/b] The IC Song title goes here.

  14. One of the main draws for me is international affairs and diplomacy. The rare times this is possible, is when someone organises an event or a meeting. I'd love to see more regular events like this happen. This is why am proposing to create our own Model United Nations. (See Wikipedia for more information.) An institution for everyone to discuss IC their complaints about other nation's actions. An opportunity to be a force for good, or condemn evildoers. A linchpin for the creation of other institutions. Yet another way for news media to criticize ineffective politicians. Practical How do I see this working? Everyone is a member, unless they explicitly demand to leave. Combination of General Assembly and Security council. Led by a Secretary-General who is elected every X months. If this works, there can be offshoots and specialised agencies, for example: UNESCO, WHO, IMF, etc.
  15. Just thought about making an OOC thread, so we can sort out the aims of our different nations. I assume Rennd's fighting for control of the island and the resources there. Deltannia's fighting to stop Rennd's grasping, as are the Mongol-Swedes. There is a Tagmatine force to shore up the Renndian forces and enable them to retain control of the island. The Aristocracy forces are being deployed to test their armaments and back up the Deltannian units. That's all well and good, but I can see some problems arising. Aristo's deployment maybe one, as Delt didn't give permission yet, as well as the attack on the airfield didn't give Rennd much of a chance to fight back against the attack. But, we're here to discuss!
  16. well, i am interested in starting some sort of historical RP, as i thnk it owuld be an intersting experiance to have RP's without the massive mussiles and WMB that so dominate matters nowadays. The problem is that in order to play out part of europas past, we all need to agree what time frame we are looking at, what sort of technological age we are in, and some indecation of where we are going. Some nations may want to play out a particuler event, others may just wish to start at a time with a nation, and see where we go from there. I suggest that all people intersted in a 'europas past' RP topost in a new thread i will create with any ideas they have about it, as we will all have to agree on a theme for the RP to work. people, pleae post here with any ideas you masy have on how to work this.
