[OOC] Scramble for Antargis

Recommended Posts

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):


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.

@Sunset Sea Islands: You know those words were just for postering. And I never called you a "puny lesser nation". It was more a general reference to "Antargic claims of some other, minor nations". wink.gif Not sure why you seem to self-identify with these words.

Also, if at all possible, I would like to have a simple poll up over at NationStates so we can consult the nation about how to go forward with this. Something easy to vote on. For example:

    An Antargic Treaty is in order to define the use of Antargis. Which option do you support?


    a. We should not explore Antargis

    b. Minimal scientific research is ok

    c. Nations can claim (part of) the Antargic as their own territory

    d. Full economic exploitation: first come, first serve!

Let me know what you think of this poll. Anything to add here? I will put it up in a few days, and probably leave this open for the 7 days.

f) science the sh*t out of that continent


For the sake planning this treaty, it would be good to have a map of the claims of EOS, etc. I believe I sent Orioni a map of ISTC claims, but this is adjustable. The ISTC could go for one single chunk or we could vote against claiming altogether.

After everyone has introduced their characters, can you, @Orioni, start the discussion?


Will do. For those who are reading this later, we will assume you are present (in person or per video), and can take the microphone when you have something to add. I forsee us RP'ing this for maybe 20-30 posts before coming to some sort of an agreement.


Good luck, have fun!

Are we still waiting for @Akiiryu and @Magnaeus or are we going on without them? I suppose they could always do something like "Suddenly, the representative of the Magnaean Confederation raised his arm. As a member of the Initiative Scientifique Trans-Continentale, his words were of importance for all of the attendees..."

@Orioniin your last post in the RP, you have mentioned "slices" of Antargis. @Fleur de Lyswhipped those up in his first draft of the treaty already. How do we explain that? We cannot just say that the ISTC whipped up a whole draft featuring the zones in the five minutes that have passed since Lydia Mauve spoke, can we?
