Medieval Fanatica, 500 A.D. Tensions once again mount internally within the Empire. In the west, a movement centered in Gorina, a city world-famous for it's Great Wonders, clashes with the east, centered in the equally famous capital, Noshuret. The people of the west, long secure from invasion, yearn for a rebublican government. They argue that in such modern times, it is backwards for such a great nation to follow a single Emperor in distant Noshuret. The people of the eastern cities fully support the Emperor, pointing to the great military he controls, one that protects the Eastern Empire from Aztec and Egyptian raids and invasion. A republic, they say, would weaken the military and cause the great nation to collaspe. The two cities most involved in this debate are the two eldest in the land, Noshuret and Gorina. Gorina, since ancient times, has had it's own republican municipal government. They point to the great freedoms enjoyed by Gorian citizens as reason enough to topple the Emperor of Noshuret., to end the practice of placing the fate of millions in the hands of one person. Noshuet, since the beginning of time, has been the seat of the Empire. The fact that Noshuret, and the rest of Fanatica, has remained safe from the raids of nomads, and Epyto-Aztec hordes, they credit with the great central command of the Emperor. If placed in the hands of a weak, republican govenment, the famous ineffciencies that regularly plauge Gorina would then plague the rest of the Empire. At this time when feudal practices are started and going strong, what role will YOU play? Will you pledge allegience to the Emperor's Throne, or will you work against him? ---- Basically, this is just a story thread. No real rule, just keep it all in early medieval times. You're free to chose your own place, own position to support, etc. Basic rules: -No 'godmodding' (I kill you with my 30000000 nukes!!!!!!!1) -No gunpowder, lightsabers, and the like. -Don't post twice in row, so others have a chance. -Be nice. Don't kill off another player in just one post. Give the other player some time to respond, etc. If necessary, I'll rule posts invalid, but I doubt I'll have too. Also, in battle, if you like, I'll decide the outcome. Also, this is just based on the Fanatican story. Everything from this point doesn't have to follow the Fanatican storyline. Whoever was President back then doesn't HAVE to be Emperor now, etc. Both sides have a fair chance of winning: just because in-game we went Republic doesn't mean this one has too. Have fun!
