Welcome to Game of Polities! An interactive after action report in the same vein of Government and Politics and Children of the Emperor, you will lead a group of followers to gain control of the levers of power, and steer our civilization to greatness. Rules The game will always have in place a set of base rules. These will remain unchanged as the game progresses. Based on the in-game government type we have, there will also be a set of rules which dictate how decisions are made, and what roles exist in the government for players to fill. Spoiler Rules : Current Rules: Base Rules For this update we will go with the proposal that has the most supporters for each of the decisions. I will make any decisions without a proposal. In the event of ties I will use a virtual coin toss.

For those of you who have not had a chance to play an IAAR on CivFanatics, I hope recreate an experience that peaked in the Civ V Stories and Let’s Plays forum. These games were very popular and long running. They took a few forms. Governments and Politics was the ultimate story-driven roleplay game run by Civleader. Children of the Emperor was an extremely popular stats and rng-based forum game run by Yahzuk. Realpolitik was a fantastic democracy-simulation game started on this forum by Lighthearter, and reimagined in multiple forms by many GMs. It is in the spirit of these that I have created this game. For those of you who have played IAARs in the past, I welcome you back! I hope to reignite a community, and bring back some of the magic that made these games so fun in the past. Please feel free to offer your feedback on game mechanics, and propose changes that might make the game more fun from your past experiences. One notable departure from past games I’ve played is that I will be participating as a player in this game. (I think Yahzuk may have done this as well). Hopefully this will make things more interesting, and keep the game going longer! Let’s keep the game going until we make it to a victory!
