    Rules (modified from Spirit of Mankind)
    Spoiler :
    Alrighty... Lets start at the basics:
    If you do all that bad internet stuff (Spamming, trolling, whatever) then you get penalized.
    If you RP like a pro then you get bonuses.
    If you break the forum rules the Mods will come and eat you.
    If you don't work as a team then you are going to die... Sad but true.
    If you powergame then you're doing it wrong
    If you pretend to powergame then something is wrong
    If you want to complain about it being unbalanced then you don't get the point of the game.

    You start with the total number of territories you have times 2 in CP. (Tiny islands only give you 1 CP for every 5 you have.)

    So, I bet that now you want to ask about claiming?
    Well, there is none.
    This is 1914. There isn't any unclaimed territory...
    What looks like unclaimed land is actually an "inactive nation." Declare war on them and I will take control of them until you make peace.


    So what can you do?
    You can fight!
    There are 4 kinds of Land unit that you can build:
    Infantry- 1CP
    Cavalry- 2CP
    Artillery- 3CP
    Tank- 4CP


    You can build each unit for the listed price with a limit by the total number of territories you have. The higher cost, the higher strength. When you go to war you can make a war plan detailing what you want your armis to do... Will you opt for a slow and steady approach or will you strike a blow deep into enemy territory? Anything goes!


    Navy
    You can build fleets! Fleets are comprised of several ships. Ships cost 1CP to build but you can only make the same number of ships as you have coastal territories. They come in 4 catagories:
    Crusier- 2CP
    Destroyer- 4CP
    Battleship- 6CP

    Fleets can be used for 2 missions:
    Patrol - A communal pool of ships that will fight Invasion Fleets
    Invasion Fleets - Required to escort troops across seas - If you have a fleet then you can send any number of troops across the sea but if it is intercepted by a Patrol then you lose the troops.

    Diplomacy:
    You can get into alliances to fight each other and NPCs.
    You can also bribe NPCs with CP to make them do things such as attack your enemies .
    You can also seize an NPC which you gain all of their Territories. This costs 4 times the amount of Territories they control. You must have a land border with an NPC to Seize it. If one nation is influencing an NPC then it can only be seized by them unless they are outbid.

    Infrastructure:
    You can expend 5CP to build extra Infrastructure. Each infrastructure gives one extra CP. You can only build one per turn for every 10 territories you control.

    Each fully integrated territory provides 1CP, each colony provides 1CP for every 2 colonies you have, and tiny islands only give you 1CP for every 5.

    Events
    Both random and scripted events will happen.
    Everything from Parson Nathaniel's escape from the martian to an earthquake in Sarajevo. Anything can happen.


    One last thing: Real-life alliances and grudges don't exist yet, so the French can ally with the Germans, and so on.

    Anyway, BEGIN! :ar15:

    President Tambien would like to announce that a referendum for statehood in Puerto Rico, Alaska, the Philipines, and Hawi'i has been scheduled.

    Problem with your map.

    1. It's GIF, not PNG. Makes it uneditable

    2. No Danish West Indies or Faroe Islands

    3. French Haiti?

    United States of America


    Recently presdential candidate Woodrow Wilson was defeated by a Moderate Party of America candidate, Tomphson Tambien. He is the first minor party president since Teddy Rosevelt, and the Moderate Party won a majority of the seats in Congress too. The Republican Party's candidate was just a show, as they had no hope of winning in the first place. America hopes to stay out of the conflict broiling in Europe.

    President Tomphson Tambien has been quite vocal about giving the last US territories statehood, saying that America is not an Empire and must prove it by giving its people all around the Earth a voice. He is supported by the majority of the population.

    He was born in Yorktown, Virginia. His personal motto is "Sic Semper Tyrannus, LONG LIVE AMERICA!"

    I just made a map with all of the North American NPCs, so that I can keep track of them. Would you mind adding them to your map, Red?

    Ok, fine with me, as long as I see my NPCs!

    Oh, and I also added the US's Carribean claims and Midway to the map.
