Well shoot, I'll through my hat in the ring!

Can I take Nicholas Gilman?

Certainly.

Hell, I may have to start this tomorrow with the current number of players, but the factions do need to be filled.

No problem, welcome!

Also, important announcement.

The vast majority of the game will be played in the forum, but since given the nature of the game there may be times in which player interaction requires a faster medium than PM's (which can slow the game a bit), we will have our own Discord Chat to keep the game better organized.

Do bear in mind that as a general policy I don't like what Discord has done to Atlasia, so it will be open only to the players and meant for the game, not for any drama whatsoever. Not_Madigan will be messaging all you with further necessary details.

We have six factions now, I'm allowing one extra faction to be formed and we close forming new factions until after the election.

We have seven factions, and 12 out of 13 players have already joined one. First turn will be up tomorrow.

So how far do you plan to take this game? If we end up getting into a war with Britain at some point, I have a decent map of the US and Canada that might be of use for charting who occupies which seat.

As long as we can, Sanchez. Whether it's ten years or we can do time jumps to reach a more modern era will depend on activity and interest. Please feel free to bring forward materials such as that map!

THE ELECTION HAS BEGUN.

Campaign thread and Press thread are now open. You have exactly one week from now on to contest the election. Do remember to ideally pick a seat for extra immersion into the game, unless you're running in a state who elects its delegates At-Large.

For obvious reasons denied, sorry. Lafayette is, to put it mildly, rather busy in France and won't meddle in American politics.

Muhlenberg is fine. You'd have to join a faction or stand as an independent.

(This is the last sign-up allowed, btw, as first turn has begun)

What's the date of the election?

It takes place across the month of April, considering states would realistically vote on different days (but avoiding a months-long period of voting).

This was an extremely fast start to an Atlas game.

I'd love to join, but it seems it's too late and I have a strict no-discord policy.

To be fair no formal/official game business are conducted through Discord (as I am enormously distrustful of it after Atlasia), so the game can be played without being a part of it with no downsides. I won't accept more people running for the election itself, but you're more than welcome after the results are in and we move into government phase.

Gentlemen, good work on the press! But the dates of some publications are in 1787, we're in 1789.

Gentlemen,

Fantastic work thus far, I must say the amount and quality of posts is enjoyable. I do think I may have been excessively pessimistic when setting up a weekly turn, with this material we could certainly end much earlier and during the week end.

Originally the election was set to end on Wednesday, but I'd like to propose Sunday if the player base wants to move a bit faster.

Thoughts?

I support a move to Sunday given our post rate.
