Hello!

A while back, in my heavy Nationstate MMORP'ing days, I participated in this Roleplay of the Spanish Civil War. It, however, got stopped in its tracks. The Mods never did revive it (unlike what they initially said so), so I am going to try it here on DDo!

Introduction:

In the 1930s, Spain was a deeply divided country that was politically torn between right-wing Nationalist and left-wing Republican parties. The Nationalist party was made up of monarchists, landowners, employers, the Roman Catholic Church and the army. The Republicans consisted of the workers, the trade unions, socialists and peasants. The country was so divided and unstable that in 1936 the army rebelled and forcibly removed the Republicans from power. Civil war ensued.

The fight against Fascism drew young men and women from all over Europe and the USA to Spain. Fighting for the Republicans, these idealists, socialists and communists, formed a rag-tag army determined to uphold democracy against the right-wing threat. At any one time up to 20,000 people were fighting in the International Brigades. Hitler and Mussolini both sent thousands of troops and weapons to Spain to aid the Nationalist forces. In this RP you will assume command of one of these units fighting for your cause, whether it be democracy and socialism or authoritarianism and fascism.

Rules:

-Godmod: A major issue in these RPs. Godmod is the act of controlling everything to the way you want it. What is a Godmod?

This is godmod:

"I have 300 men. I charge them into yours. You lost 129 men, while your forces retreated to a division."

Firstly, this is heavy godmod. If I say, IRL, that "I force you to eat Hersheys" that doesn't mean you have to necessarily eat Hersheys. So you can't infer that THEY lost 129 men before they even reply!

This is also godmod:

"Without any opposition, my forces drove down and reached your base"

This is light godmod, but happens every there and then. Without any opposition? Wait a minute, mate, isn't that too weird? If I charged down into your house, and came right into your bedroom, would I meet opposition?

So then, how does this work. Its like this, you write half the story, and the enemy writes the other half. For example, I'd say "My forces attack with full strength upon the forces at hill x" Then the enemy would have to reply, REASONABLY, that "Hill x was preserved with the losses of x number of men."

This was the original thread in which I got my ideas from. In Nationstates. MMORPG is fun lol

-No Metagaming. Metagaming is the usage of OOC information to use for IC purposes. For example, if someone says:

"Hey [insert random name here], I'm going to launch a surprise attack!" Then the enemy notices you and uses that info against you, then that is metagaming.

Firstly, if I whisper to someone "Boy I hate that person" No one automatically knows that I said that to you. Tough luck.

And lastly, but not least:

HAVE FUN. This is a requirement. If you do not have fun, then I swear, I will debate PRO on a GAY MARRIAGE DEBATE. LOL.....I mean it....its gonna hurt me..... :(
