    Alright, here's the map I'll give full info on the NPCs I placed when I can. Please keep in mind it's peak season at my job which means more work for me.

    Witch please, if anyone's gonna be a Byzantium-expy, it'd be the Bene Gesserit.

    dune is the (probable) result of frank herbert doing all the drugs and actually seeing the future of earth in like 2100 or something except for the weird worms those probably won't happen

    but the rest? yeah we're on that timeline, gang, desert, eugenicists religious cults, complete collapse of the environment, etc etc.

    good first two or so books, the rest is horrible, just a bad trip

    Would it be permissible to lodge an application which incidentally erases an NPC at this stage?

    I was pondering setting up a "Socialist Jamahiriya" taking up a swathe of North Africa - alla Gaddafi.

    Great Socialist Arab Peoples Jamahiriya



    High Concept:
    Tribal Congressional Islamic Autocratic Dictatorship

    Trouble:
    Alien Infiltration - psionic mutants and alien supremacists threaten the Jamahiriya and dominion of mankind and infiltrate the very congressional apparatus of the state to thwart the revolution! These reactionary elements have already usurped the Jamahiriya's dominion in Morocco and have set up an outpost of tyranny in Egypt, they must not be permitted to proceed further..

    Stunt:
    Third International Theory - +2 to charm rolls when engaging in diplomatic actions with NPC's.

    Aspects:

    The Green Book: "
    The Party" is a tool of oppression, a modern instrument of tyranny established to maintain the rule and power of the few over the many. The Jamahiriya revolutionises socialism and brings power back to the people previously shackled by the decadent bourgeois socialism of the false European doctrine that rose ascendant in the aftermath of the calamity. It does this through its peoples congresses and enlightened doctrine that works with human nature rather than against it, under the benevolent protection of the Brotherly Leader and Guide of the Revolution, Caliph of Islam and King of Kings of Africa of course.

    Humanity United:
    "the family—the tribe—the nation—the world," from the small to the great the natural bonds of blood and kinship are of foremost importance in the Third International Theory. We made use of the alien and the aquatic mutant, having stolen their secrets, their knowledge and their service, but now the Jamahiriya looks to the brotherhood of mankind that is but one family sundered into many parts for its future, and seeks to restore the unequivocal dominion of humanity over this world by hook or by crook.

    Bio-Engineering Protocol: Cloning is contrary to Islam, the union of man and woman is ideal. However natural born offspring are prone to mutation in this ravaged world and so the brotherly leader has established the genetic enhancement mandate. The seed of man and woman is to be safeguarded in the "Peoples Gestation Factories" and the children grown therein genetically enhanced with the best results of alien and human science to make it in this harsh world. In this the next phase of human evolution is clear ahead, and its supremacy guaranteed in the ever improving intelligence, strength and genetic health of the Jamahiriya's sons.


    Approaches

    Covert 0 -
    A socialist Jumhuriyat does not negotiate or resort to cheap terrorist tricks!
    Charm +2 - The Brotherly Leader is acclaimed amongst the nations and hailed amongst his subjects as the cutting edge of style.
    Force +1 - The people must unite against the bourgeois Europeans and alien tyranny. The Jamahiriya will conquer its enemies and lay waste the outposts of reaction in its midst!
    Science +1 - Alien tech and human wisdom makes for an army of genetically enhanced soldiers and a legion of brilliant scientists. The Jamahiriya will not repeat the errors of the past and put aside the cutting edge weapons of the people.
    Thrift 0 - No expenses are spared on the robes of the brotherly leader.

    History

    Long ago the first brotherly leader united the tribes of Libya against the evil kings of old only to be murdered by fanatics paid off by the European socialists and their reactionary capitalist masters who threatened by the revolutionary third way sought to extinguish it in its cradle. Alas for them however, for in the aftermath of the calamity that great mans heir united the scattered tribes of the Sahara and Arabia in a great movement known as the "Second Spring" and brought them together under the Great Jamahariya!

    Biding time to build up technical knowhow and establish the congressional system throughout the tribes and disparate arab lands the rule of the Jamahiriya became entrenched under the aegis of successive brotherly leaders. However in latter days a baleful alien supremacist movement has threatened the peace of the people, with reactionary elements seizing Morocco with the assistance of berber nationalists and setting up an outpost of tyranny in the western deserts of Egypt, challenging the peoples self-sovereignty under the Brotherly Leader. Furthermore the wretched Europeans once again look south seeking to restore their ancient colonial enterprise. Nonetheless despite these challenges the Jamahariya continues strong, and under the leaders brotherly guidance will indubitably spread its influence across the earth, for the brotherhood of man and the liberation of the people!

    I'm sorry for any lack of update, I've been sick the past couple of months and just haven't had the energy to do this. I'm very sorry about that.
