Cold War RP


Adaptus

Recommended Posts

I had an idea for a nice new RP. I was thinking Cold War style, something post-Long War. I was thinking it could be like the US and the USSR, where we have a large armes race between 2 alliances or pacts, say left-wing nations Vs Right-Wing nations, sort of NATO vs Warsaw Pact. Then, toward the end of a load of political tension we could have somthing to spark off a war between 2 large weapons powers. I was thinking of setting it at about Late 50's, when the arms races starts, and by the early 60's the war kicks off? how about it?

This is how i was thinking about setting it out.

 

The Long War has just ended, and Europa is split. A groups of Leftist, capatilist nations, are on one side, and a group of Rightist nations are on the other side. each group has a large influensial nation with is the main arms producer of each side. A bit like the US and USSR. after a while of each side trying to out gun eachother in a arms race, something happens between two of the lesser nations fromboth sides, a bit like Vietnem or Korea, which leads to a large 2 sided war between both the Capatist nations and the Socialist nations.

Fair enough, how about, political tensions start in the late 60's, then come mid 70's we have war?

 

Also, consering the side, we need a Capatilist, Right wing side, and a socialist/communist left wing side. lets call them, Capatilists, and Communists for now, and we could have a sort of cenral side, who sort of stay nutral.

 

so whos for what side? Back then, the Federation was a firm right wing nation. so i'll take the Capatilist side. and Vickers could be one of the big suppliers?

Rekamgil is in the centre... neutral. This is also the stance of the Commonwealth of Independent States (the alliance curretnly between Rekamgil, Upper Stratyclyde, and Vocenae). So I expect that those two nations will also declare their "neutrality". Of course, the US and I are interested in participating in this RP... but as "central neutralists"... Correct US??? viking.gif Vocenae?

Emakera was finally turned into a country in the late 70?s, but i think we?re on it. Back then, Emakera was a Communist country, until a series of political and economical reforms in the late 80?s, and then the rise of a young Richard Haller to the Purple House. Since it happened peacefully, to these days communists and the government "get along".

 

EDIT: How about 70?s to Late 80?s/Early 90?s?

Ah, 90's is a bit to modern realy, what we need, is when the threats of mass invasion across Europe was the main thing, where every country was planning of a mechonized war in Germany. that would be cool.

Perhaps you could create a communist alliance. Discuss it here a little more, and if you feel you've worked out a pretty decent proposal for an alliance, you could post it on the military board. Other members could always join you later.

Ok, so thats the nutrals sorted. What we should have is say, a communist bloc, lead by a major communist nations, back then, say for example, then a few other communists, say to take the role of the 2 waring countries, and so on. Also, smae for the capatilists, lead by a major capatilist of the time. Or rather then saying, lead by a major power, lets say influenced, by a major power.
