INTRODUCTION:

The two countries on the continent called Promethia have lived together without any scrap of conflict. That is, until now. For you see, both counties now have a new set of new leaders and office-holders. And both countries are now preparing to overthrow the other's monarch, and take control of all of the continent. However, everyone on the inside, everyone in the government, has their own...Special Interest.

GAME DESCRIPTION:

Basically, there are 2 countries. Each has a monarch, 5 cabinet members, and 1 parliament. The obvious goals of each of the two countries is to kill the other one's monarch. However, everyone has a certain "special interest," a special win objective, from something as mundane as having 1000 gold in the treasury at the time of winning, to something as dastardly as killing your own monarch before yor country wins.

To gain defenses and troops, as well as preventing a domestic uprising, you need to keep your people happy, as well as obtaining and keeping money. During the day, in a forum thread, obvious activities are put out in the open (like uneasy trading betwixt countries.) However, in the PMs, at night, are where the shady deals take place...

I have to say that it is an interesting game....I wonder if I could ever use some realpolitik in my role. I hope the diplomatic interactions are interesting as the outline of the game itself.:)

As long as the (nominal) allegiances are known publicly, I can play; if you are keeping those secret, and we are trying to figure out who is who like in the mafia games, my irregular hours will make me suspect.

Shady deals, a need of diplomatic posturing? This might be interesting.

Hey guys: how would you feel about not playing this for a while? I realized that there are too many kinks for this to work.

Eh. Maybe another time. I hate to disappoint you, but that was a bit of an impulse. I literally conceived the whole thing when I woke up yesterday, and posted sign ups without any real planning.

I hope this doesn't hinder your willingness to play my mafia games, though! As F16 knows personally, I spend a sh1tload of time on those.

Of course and doesn't and yeah I know how hard you work on the mafia games. I am still looking forward to your game. Are you doing the HP one or did you change it to something else?
