Wait, what exactly are we supposed to be PMing you? I have no idea what moves I can and can’t make.

Its up to you what you can or can’t do. If you want to colonize the moon, go do that. You wanna change to a fascist government? Go on ahead. Nuke Puerto Rico? Fine by me. Enforce public nudity in Estonia? You get the picture. The game changes depending upon who plays it, and never have two games I managed ever had the same way to play it.

For example, in one instance, everybody seemed hellbent on annihilating the human race, and the game became heavily oriented on who could develop the best destructive technologies (or defensive, if you wanted to survive). In another, it was all about who controlled the Uranium producing regions for nuclear weapons due to unrestricted nuclear warfare wiping out the nations that had no access.

In one of them, somebody made it his goal to collect ever single monument in the world, and by 2014 the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Big Ben, A Pyramid and the Sphinx, and a huge chunk of the great wall were all in Sydney, Australia. In exchange for the monuments, he traded masses of Uranium to their respective countries. Rediculously pointless, but that is what he wanted to accomplish.

So, I’m wondering, how does this get updated? Do you tell everyone what happened in the world’s last six months, do you keep some things secret?

I tell everything at the next post, which I will try to keep at the same time each day.

The only things I keep secret are where spy actions are coming from (unless you are extremely unlucky and it creates an international incident) and certain technologies (and even then, the technology is only secret until it becomes logically impossible to hide anymore).

Techs:

-Egypt invades Libya. Caught in the midst of a civil war, the Libyan military stands no chance whatsoever, and collapses rapidly. Egypt opts to annex the nation into their own territory.
-Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi (Libya’s despot) has fled into exile in the Saharan Desert, and possibly across the border into Niger, with a small band of soldiers.
-The annexation of Libya has proven to be a massive boon to the Egyptian economy, and very few rebels are resisting the occupation.

-Military propaganda has begun to litter the streets of Norway’s major cities, causing a spike in nationalism and volunteers.
-Medical priorities are given out to soldiers, and prison terms can now be redeemed through ten years of military service. Norway’s already small prison population practically vanished overnight.
-New oil platforms are being errected in the north sea, causing foreign investment in Norwegian oil to skyrocket. Norway will soon outpace minor OPEC nations, causing a stir in the internation oil producing community.
-To appease environmentalists and keep the north green, clean energy programs have been instituted, and new technology in this field is being funded by the government.

No, New Zealand was already taken. Sorry :(

Note to those looking at the map: the cross hatching represents territory you occupy but have not yet formally annexed. You must either occupy the entire nation or agree on a peace treaty to annex land, and you cannot annex a nation if it still resists your occupation (which NPCs will usually not do, but player nations can form resistance groups after you have conquered them and they refuse to bow to your demands).

-Egyptian officers are ordered to peacefully integrate Libya into the nation, as if they were first rate citizens, to cut down on racial and nationalist friction between Egypt and Libya. No major insurections have occured.
-A democratically elected government replaced the military junta rule, and elections are held in December of 2011. The Egyptian people rejoice, and the Arab Spring Revolution all but dies out in Egypt.
-Egypt is being hailed by people all throughout the Arab world as the leading force of democracy and freedom in the middle east and North Africa. Riots intensify in Iraq, Syria, and Morocco as a result, and Algeria breaks down into civil war.
-Gadaffi is discovered to be leading sporadic attacks from across the Algerian border, as well as lending his remaining forces to upholding the Algerian regime.
-Libya is rapidly undergoing economic growth as reconstruction of infrastructure and restoration of order begins. American companies begin to invest in Egyptian oil, bolstering the economy.
-Colonel Gadaffi is placed upon the top of the most wanted list in Egypt.
-Research into various forms of alternative energy is started, but unless this project is narrowed down into one specific item, it may take a long time to complete.

Italy – Derpy Hooves – Blue
Military: Average Specialist

Techs:

-An invasion of Germany is commenced. Having no direct land route to the nation in question, Italy is forced to drift its armies through the Mediteranean and North Seas, complicating logistics to no end. Heavy bomber support and the unexpected nature of the attack are the primary causes of the modicum of success the Italians have had.
-Italy has been ousted from the European Union for her unprovoked invasion of Germany.

-Non-aggression pacts are offered to anybody who will accept them.
-Government investment into training the army in the art of defense for specific locations has led to supreme mastery of the Alps, causing the Swiss army to be claimed as practically invincible.

-After fierce street fighting for the majority of six months, Honshu has been all but entirely conquered, and Japan is on the brink of collapse.
-China encourages an economic triumvirate between itself, France, and Brazil.
-India, Nepal, Bhutan, and the United States declare war upon China and invade from the south, into Tibet. India has made their most significant push into Kashmir, capturing the region.
-Due to harsh terrain in the Himilayas and an even harsher winter for those heights, China has not had to invest many troops at all to slow the enemy advance into Tibet, and progress for Nepal and her allies is slow at best.
-Trade relations with India are pushed, but the Indian government has declared war and thus, trade is not possible.

-Chemical reineries being built in major cities are processing crude North Sea oil into refined gasoline and other petrolium products. More and more nations are turning to Norway for their oil needs, especially those in Northern Europe.
-Nuclear powered submarines have made their way into the navy, but as of yet, no nuclear warheads have been produced in Norway.
-Weather research satelites have been launched into geosynchonous orbit over Norway, although for some reason the secret servince insists on monitoring all data gathered from them.
-In a generous donation, the Norwegian government has agreed to subsidize half of the Estonian undersea research projects, leading to major breakthroughs.

I used to do random things like that, although I always thought it unfair to randomly target players for disadvantages, so the random events would always be funny (like Mt. Rushmore turning into a volcano), but people took them too seriously, and thought I was trying to tell them to investigate Mt. Rushmore for some secret power. They were then disapointed to find it was just an ordinary volcano.

It was just annoying people, so I stopped doing it.

@RedSyndicate Ah okay, thanks for clearing that up.

I have just one more question though. When mulitple countries invade another (such as the four invading China right now) do they evenly split the conquered land between the invaders?

Is it possible for nations, before the war starts, to agree on who gets what share of the land?

I don’t think it has been made as clear as I wanted it to be, and I was thinking of posting an explanation; apparently one is needed.

OFFICIAL STATEMENT BY THE SOUTH ASIAN COALITION

Our recent military action in the western section of the People’s Republic of China is primarily in the interest of creating a free Tibet. We have no intention of encroaching on Chinese territory beyond the western half of Sichuan and Yunnan provinces, and may stop well short of that. Whether this will result in the creation of a new Tibetan nation or some combined entity such as a “United States of South Asia” is going to be left up to the will of the Tibetan people as determined in free democratic vote once fighting has subsided. What with the previous 60 years of oppression of the peoples of this region and the recent attack on Nippon, we urge all freedom-loving nations of the world to stand up to Chinese imperialism.

Egypt – Doc – Green
Military: Small Specialist
GDPpc: High
Techs: Solar Power(developing)
Trade: USA
Embargo: Syria, Morrocco, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Jordon, Palestine, Sudan, Iran, Algeria, Tunisia

-Egypt formally supports the reform movements in the other Arabic and north African nations. The leaders of these nations have snubed Egypt by placing an all encompassing embargo on her.
-Demands of the turnover of Gadaffi as well as the dismantling of the Algerian government has led to widespread love of the Egyptian leadership by revolutionaries throughout the islamic world, and hatred from their leaders. However, neither of these demands are heeded.
-Formal condemnations of the Chinese invasion of Japan, and Italy’s attack on Germany, are made.
-Investment into the military has provided higher quality leadership and weaponry.
-Egypt attempts to create a coalition called Nations ofr Africa’s Development. However, being seen by their neighbors as a pariah rather than a visionary republic, Egypt is instead barred from the African Union.
-Loans from Switzerland, fused with the increasingly modernizing Egyptian economy and the outpacing of OPEC in oil production, Egypt has made great strides to improving her economic might in a very small time frame.
-Research focus is changed to Solar Power.

Italy – Derpy Hooves – Blue

Switzerland – Christopher the Pimp Abra – Orange
Military: Miniscule Invincible
GDPpc: High
Techs: Anti-Balistics, National Redoubt (developing), Hydroponics (on hold)

-All across the Swiss Alps, a series of forts and tunnels are being constructed. This National Redoubt will serve as a first and final defense agaisnt invasion. Using high tech weaponry, automated weapon systems, and post-modern construction methods, the Swiss hope to morph half of the nation into an inpenetrable fortress.
-Hydroponics research is being encouraged.
-Due to the stressed relations between Germany and Italy, Swiss corporations and banks are finding it hard to make good bussiness with their traditional partners. THe Swiss economy thus, is suffering.

Russia – Turquiose – RussianFedora, Tsar of Fedoras
Military: Big Specialist Nuclear
GDPpc: Medium
Techs: Stealth Missiles (developing)
Trade: Canada

-Stealth technology and might-tech modern jet engines are being applied to balistic weaponry.
-Uranium mining operations are subsidized and encouraged by the federal government. It is mostly exported to Norway.
-Petrol drilling is also encouraged, and Russian oil is being exported en masse, draving down global market price per barrel.
-Windmills are built in the far north and the siberian mountains, reducing the energy industry’s dependence on coal.
-Eceonomic policies are rapidly driving up Russian potential for GDP.
-A few expeditionary divisions are sent to Germany to help stem the tide of Italians invading from the North Sea.

China – Red – Frozenpwn
Military: Massive Specialist Nuclear
GDPpc: Low
Techs: Weaponized Energy Beams(developing)
Trade: France, Brazil

-The East Turkestan Islamic Independence movement has risen once more, and has found recruits among radical muslims in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyztan, Tajikistan, and the West China provinces. Seizing administration of towns and cities in western China, they have taken it upon themselves to declare independence.
-Japan is finally conquered completely, with Hokkaido being easily tramled after the fall of Honshu’s last defenders. Scorned by America’s refusal to send direct aid to the islands, Japan has had no choice but to allow China to annex the islands.
-Aircraft soar over the Himilayas to carpet bomb major cities in Nepal.
-Mass infantry rushes into the Himilayas find themselves picked apart by snipers and hidden machine guns. Nepali and Tibetan freedom fighters are littered throughout the mountains in powerful defensive positions, making it nearly impossible to advance.
-Attacks into the western deserts upon Indian divisions leads to thousands dead, although most casualties are Indian. Regardless, very little progress in land capture is made.
-Indonesia refuses an offer of friendship, prefering not to get involved in mainland Asia’s crisis.

-Popular Sovereignty is publicly announced as Nepal’s policy towards Tibetan independence, and intends on holding a referendum after the war to determine the fate of Xizang Province.
-With the attention of China now diverted to the Himilayas, Nepali troops have turned to guerilla warfare to hold their ground. India however, has not followed this pattern, and instead engages the Chinese in a seemingly endless sereis of confrontations, killing thousands.
-Aid from Switzerland has kept the Tibetan nation from collapsing under Chinese bombing runs.
-The idea of an integrated Tibet and Nepal, titled Sagarmatha, has begun circulating among the troops and government officials.

Trade: Russia

-Post-modern anti-balistics defenses are purchased in exchange for subsidised exports of chemicals and ploymers used in solar cell construction, for Switzerland.
-The submarine fleet launches a daring raid on the Italian navy, and emerges victorious. This eventually helps to completely drive out the Italian army from North German soil.
-For some odd reason, nothing happens to Norwegian oil derricks in the north sea this summer besides normal production. THere was a stir about possible terrorist attacks, but it seems that this didn’t occur.
-The Norwegian military is further improved upon, with many new helicopters and low altitude bomber squadrons being attached to the new air force.
-Better weapons and equipment are purchased for the army, and diverse tactical training excersises are being applied to improve the quality of Norway’s armed forces.

Realized that I made a tonne of typos. Not gonna fix them, as some are funny (like “might-tech”, sounds like Skynet’s competitor) and I’m just a lazy bastard. How I wish notepad had a spellcheck.

Also, to the last two posts, no. I am not going to let brand new members join the game. Usually I restrict these to only people who have been members for at least a few weeks and have a couple dozen posts (to ensure activity, and repulse cheating).

Brazil rainbow? I thought you wanted Nigeria.

Or is there a specific type of rainbow colour you want, called the Brazil Rainbow?

Or, perhaps you want to turn Brazil into a rainbow. That’s be hard to pull off.

@Christopher Can Spain and Switzerland have a truce?

Yeah, a truce suggests spain and switzerland were at war. What you want is an alliance.
