    what if we all become GMs and run the game as we desire, regardless of the GM's will, eventually establishing dictatorship of the proletariat over the game

    Time to roll out!

    I will for the sake of consideration register this as 4 directives.

    10: your agents were able to detect notable signs in Newfoundland, Jamacia, Greenland, Iceland, New Zealand and Wales but were unable to determine if they were of Project Wardrobe or not. The Manx intelligence services have not noticed your operations.
    10: your forces were slow to mobilise towards the undead of New York.
    4: Saber's popularity has been demonstrated; your researchers converted to Saber and now have staged a revolt in your science departments, barricades and all. [your research roll suffers -1 until your solve the Revolting Science crisis]
    18: your recruitment campaign was a smashing success, granting your three new divisions, one of which shows particular promise that have specialised in paratrooper operations. [gain +1 to combat rolls and three army divisions: the Howard Bisions 3rd, the 22nd Washington Guard and, most promising, the 202nd Airborn. +1 prestige.]

    18: your assault on Washington DC was a particular moment; you have hold the city and its Congress hostage, though the Senate and the Presidency were able to leave. [Congress is now your hostage, gain +1 combat bonus from a successful operation. The Union suffers -1 to administration until it gets DC back. You gain +1 prestige]

    6: your establishment came to nought. [USSR suffers -1 prestige]

    6: my friend: are you well? [Poke's next roll must involve the drinking of tea]

    1: Dr Charles Jehonathan Kwan has booked you on a lesson on the impracticalities of mech warfare. [all mechs in game -5 to combat]

    2: The Imperium of Man has arrested you for attempting to claim the power of the GM. [Marcher Jovian is now detained in a jail in Jurby, the Isle of Man]

    3: I bring news to you...



    [USSR -1 to philosophy rolls until it came solve the GM Ego crisis]

    6: you end up in a deadlock. [Australia suffers -1 prestige]

    Turn Γ



    Spoiler map :
    A New Dawn of Salt.png

    Things remain in deadlock, save for the success of the Undead Army of the Vampire Coast's victory over Washington DC. Will the Union's new army divisions drive both the undead and the Imperium out of America?

    Will the other powers counter the tyranny of the D20 rolls?

    What will cometh from Project Wardrobe?

    Find out soon as our actors continue their performance!

    would be great if it wasn't for the fact you're not the GM, because there is *no* GM

    Time for the vampire coast to let loose the dogs of war! Release the scurvy dogs to make mincemeat of US mobility

    Conscript Washington DC to our navy. With a little bit of “turning them into undead deckhand mobs” we can make these guys into passable sailors yet

    Yargh me matey a pirate belongs on the sea, burn everything we can’t take, board our hostages and set sail. The landlubbers will never catch us on the waves!

    Our great democracy continues to be threatened by the Undead and the Mann - we are forced to continue to combat these lethal threats to our soverignty with all of our resources and might. Send the 3rd Howard Bisons to finally liberate New York and dispatch the Washington Guard to free our capital and Congress, preferrably before the undead escape with them. We cannot let our Republic fall!

    Next, we shall gather the 202nd Airborne for their first assignment: to paradrop and disrupt the potential Project Wardrobe site in Newfoundland. Even if there is no such site there, those paradropped forces will be vital in securing the territory from Manx occupation and perhaps integrating it into the New Union should its populace be willing. For the New Union!

    In the light of the potentially catastrophic effects of the 'Project Wardrobe', the growing threat of the 'Imperium of Mann' and its 'Cult of Saber', and the occupation of Washington, D.C, a National Emergency shall be declared so as to allow for dramatic restructuring of the current government of the Union. The entirety of our science department shall be removed from their positions and in their place shall be put loyal, non-Saberist scientists - this is not a violation to the First Amendment as they are not being prohibited from practicing their faith, only removed from their offices due to their rebellion against the Union. In addition, any and all Saberists in non-elected positions in the government shall be removed and replaced in the same fashion to prevent further rebellion, revolt, and treason from their like, unless they publicly swear that they will not allow their religion to interfere with the administration of the Union. While this may straddle the line of violating the First Amendment, the dangerous influence of the Cult of Saber cannot be ignored especially having been proven in the case of the science department's revolt.
