I do like this idea and the fictional city we created is a decent one. This is a game with a degree of potential.
So. Why doesn't this ever get far off the ground? My guess is that it's the elections element; everything else works fine, but as soon as that has loomed, things have always drifted and died.

So the logical solution is to greatly reduce that. Which I will do as I go over the rules and change them. I'll also go over the background and maybe add some things, maybe smooth some others into the setup better. I will also create a lot more NPCs in detail; many based on real people.

Anyway. Participation is always welcome. Smiley

I had a similar idea  once so.. I would love to help with this in any way I could (which, as an American, isn't going to be as much background as implementation). If you want to brainstorm anything or just need an active player just shoot me a PM.

Yeah, I'll do that. The more people interested, the better.

I never did finish signing up, did I? Oops.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

You're right - everything was good about the city we put together. As for the elections... I kept meaning to make a speech to a local chamber of commerce about how the Conservatives knew the pressures of small business, etc. Problem was, it was always going to take a half hour or so to come up with the speech and I kept putting it off. So on my part, it was just a bit of laziness.

I'm keen given my Atlasis days are over. You kept the rules as simple as you could; all it needs is momentum.

...and this game is officially active again. Some characters have been modified for various reasons, though mostly backstage Smiley

Only a couple are absolute bastards, by the way. The problem your characters may find is working out which ones are.
