    Welcome, conscripts!

    In ages past, IOT rules were less about gameplay than keeping forumers from flaming each other into oblivion. It was a world without limits, and a time without end, when the only IOT you found atop the mountain was the IOT you brought with you. This game seeks to emulate the old spirit by eschewing hard rules in favour of imaginAAAtion! As such, only the following are binding:
    • All orders are public, either in this thread or a tributary user group.
    • The Thorvald reserves the right to arbitration of anything and everything, especially the world map.
    After that, anything goes, but bear in mind that I will be working to keep the chaos from spiralling out of control; this is neither CityIOT nor Total Anarchy. You can claim to have 50 billion Tsar Bomba, but don't raise a stink when your backwater neighbour flattens your paper tigers. N.B.: Powergamers need not apply.

    For those tenderpads unfamiliar with Classic IOTs, the closest comparison is the pregame worldbuilding of I&B et al., but developed in real time and with unfettered irreverence.

    Spoiler A MAP :




    Do what you want because antics are free!



    You are a Nazi!

    Illiam II, Emperor of Man, declares his intent to wed one of his family with the imperial family of Germany.

    Glory to both our families!
