Title: 1914: The rising dangers (Sign up-Rules Thread)
Post by: Chief Justice windjammer on February 14, 2018, 04:47:52 pm
Hey guys,
As some of you may know, I have been thinking for a while about hosting a game. I have no experience in that matter but I suppose I will have to try one day haha?
So I plan to start a game focused on 1914. I believe that WW1 and its environment was fascinating and so interesting politically, economically and there is so much thing to be done regarding  this period.

Anyone interested in playing? I plan to start the game as soon as either Lumine or DKrol's game ends, considering they are both promising I don't expect the game to start before some months so that will give me time to harass Lumine regarding GM stuff haha.


Anyway, for now, the current countries available are:
- France Dr Novella
-Austria-Hungary: Ypestis
-Russia: Malcolm X
-Germany: New TN
-The UK: gotfan
-Italy: Dereich
-The Ottoman Empire: Kalwejt
-The USA: Kingpoleon
-Serbia: Timturner
-Romania: Louisville
-Greece: Henry Wallace
-Bulgaria: BK
-China: DKrol
-Japan: Lumine


Feel free to seek any of them. If there are many players interested, I will open new countries.

And I know it's a bit weird to open a thread for a game that will not start before some months, but as it is my first game I will have to make many searches.

Obviously its hard to tell what my workload will be like when this starts, so I don't know if I'll be free to play once the game starts, but for now I'd like to reserve Italy.

He won't start now as there are already 2 games. As soon as one of these 2 ends, the game will start.

Other than Romania, what other countries could feasibly be allowed? I might want to play from the start after all.

Lumine,
I suppose China?

I know quite well of China under Cixi. While she's dead I think that shouldn't be difficult to make it playable considering my knowledges of China.

In rewards to all the great games you hosted, you can choose whichever country you want.

I think I'll want to join. What would you say to me playing as an African nation. Perhaps the Union of South Africa, under Louis Botha?

Well, with all due respect, as much as I would love you to join the game, I absolutely don't know anything about this realm. As you are being a great GM, you can be whichever european country + China/Japan you want!

I will not open any other countries for now.

The game will either start on 1st april or 1st May, as I believe that both Lumine and DKrol's games would have quite advanced.

If any other posters want to play, please PM me.

I have a question. In the game, will I play as King Constantine I of Greece, or will I play as Prime Minister Eleftherios Venizelos? This really does matter, as the King and his Prime Minister were on complete opposite sides of the National Schism, with the King supporting the Central Powers and the Prime Minister supporting the Entente Powers.

That is a good question lol. You will play as King Constantine, unless you absolutely want to play as the Prime Minister.

This would be interesting... If King Constantine I and Romania ally with Germany, we could see a completely different aspect of the Balkan front of this war.

I prefer to do this now when there's time, I won't be playing (at least from the start). Classes begin tomorrow and potentially I'll start working within the coming days, so I won't have the time (and may even have to outsource one of my own games). Best of luck with the game!

Hey guys,
After some thought I prefer not to start this game right now:

- I need to get more informations about Italy and the US.
- I might have internet problems soon.


So thank you for having shown your interest but it is preferable I dont host this game rigjht now. I will lock it and start much later.
