    In 2020 some global disaster wiped out civilization. Now, survivors have climbed out of the wreckage and have started to rebuild. Nations are being formed amidst the ruins of former civilization. You, the player, will control one of these nations. Will you lead it to prosperity? Or will you lead it to ruin? The choices you make will determine this. But the ultimate question remains: Can you lead a civilization that will stand the test of time?

    Civilization 5 references aside, welcome to Imperium Offtopicum XII! This is my first time gming an iot. I have decided to return to the roots of Iot by having elements of iot IV in this. However, I also have incorporated elements of Rise of the American Empire into this iot. Since this is my first time gming, I have decided to make this a game on the simple side. Now, without further ado let's get to the rules.


    Joining
    Spoiler :
    To join, simply choose 5 land adjacent territories from the map and name your nation. Add any details you feel your nation should have. You gain no bonuses from choosing less then 5 territories.


    Map
    Spoiler :

    IMG_5424.PNG


    Economy
    Spoiler :

    Each territory you control generates 2 ep (economic points). You can spend 5 ep to increase Your net ep output by one.


    Military
    Spoiler :

    Armies and navies cost 4 ep each. (For the sake of simplicity there are no air forces. I'm sorry but that's the way it is.) Each army and navy costs 1 ep per turn in maintenance. For each territory you own you don't have to pay the equivalent amount of armies maintenance. (4 territories means 4 armies you don't have to pay maintenance for) I have a way of doing combat that relies on several factors such as the involved players' tactics, the terrain, flanking bonuses, and more. There is no unit experience, again for the sake of simplicity.


    Expansion
    Spoiler :

    You can claim up to 5 lands per turn. Claiming one territory costs 2 ep. Claiming an island territory close to you costs 3 ep. If 2 players want the same land then a die from 1-6 will be rolled. 1-3, the first player gets it. 4-6, the second player gets it. The losing player's points are refunded. The overseas claiming limit is the equivalent of the distance from Britain to Iceland.


    Roleplay
    Spoiler :

    Roleplaying can get you bonuses that I, the gm will decide. Nothing game breaking or big though.


    Players who miss orders 2 turns in a row will be dropped.

    History: founded by the forming of several small defence corps that sought to combine their resources to compete with the bigger players during the end of 2017 the then Pheonix United Defence had began to invest also into the energy and technology markets before the downfall . When the United Kingdom was caught up in the chaos Pheonix United Defence had a corporate restructuring to help cope with the collapse of the economy and made several strategic buy outs of security firms, both militaristic and civil.

    Roman Empire.

    Primary culture: turkish
    accepted cultures: kurdish
    Capital: Istanbul
    Emperor: Andreas I Laskaris (actually a Turkish man named Adalet Aslan who chose that name for prestige.)
    Form of government: constitutional monarchy, strong monarch powers.
    Political Freedom: strong. the people can overrule the Emperor, or have him replaced with at least 75% approval from the general populous, and a 50% turnout rating. the senate limits the Emperor's powers. this was done after Erdodan was forced out of office.
    social freedom: quite high. for the reigon. its getting there.

    backstory: the people forced out erdogan, but he had the last laugh, and took most of the administration down with him. without the central government, turkey reverted to a collection of provinces, who then had to decide who to elect, what form of government, and general outlook. the arranged for a massive election, with the people choosing the government first, then the leader, then filling out the senate with the elected people. there are no parties yet, as they are still in the process of forming.

    (its beyond evident that the turkish people are being blatant about a return to prestigious glory.)

    Union of Andalusia and the Algarves


    Capital: Seville
    Official languages*: Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Berber, English
    Government: Federal semi-presidential republic
    Currency: Euro**

    *No language is explicitly defined as an official language on a federal level. Rather any language that is official in at least one province is considered an official language of the union.
    **The Euro was unilaterally adopted as the currency of Andalusia and the Algarves, who is not a formal member of the eurozone or the European Union - if these institutions even exist anymore.


    The Second Spanish Civil War began when the Alliance of Three, a united front of Galicia, Catalonia and the Basque Country, declared their independence from Spain. This was not looked kindly upon by the Spanish government who escalated the situation into an armed conflict as the military was deployed against separatist militias. Madrid was initially successful, but a series of missteps and violations of Andorra's and Portugal's territorial integrity by both sides lead to a NATO intervention which threw the entire region deeper into chaos and instability.

    Out of this mayhem the Union of Andalusia and the Algarves was formed as a democratic multi-ethnic federation of a number of provinces in southern Iberia, defined by a weak central government in favour of strong provincial autonomy. The founding provinces of the union were Andalusia, Algarve, Gibraltar, Ceuta, and Melilla. These were later joined by Murcia and two provinces in northern Morocco.

    Truth: The State is a living being, like a human body, of a moral weight far beyond humanity.

    Truth: Human beings are nothing but cells within this great organism, providing the necessary functions that it needs to survive.

    Truth: Unchecked individualism is a cancer upon the State and is what led to the downfall of the states that came before.

    Truth: Victor West, in his role as Great Leader, speaks the will of the State. He alone can speak for the State and He directly communes with the State.

    Truth: There is no truth but Victor's Truth.

    Capital: Detroit
    Government: Dystopic Absolute Dictatorship
    Ideology: Victor's Truth a.k.a Victorism, Victor West's own brand of Fascism.

    (OOC: When you aren't sure what you believe anymore, its hard to think of an idea. So I decided to play the bad guys...)

    Signups are due on Monday 4 AM CST

    (Signups will be allowed after that but that is when the game starts and I would prefer that people get their signups in before the deadline.)
