Title: Game Suggestion Thread - (Proposals, Ideas, Reserves)
Post by: Lumine on February 17, 2018, 05:13:03 pm
Evening!

I've started this thread as one of several measures I'm considering to address either an excess or a lack of games (both of which happen from time to time).

The purpose of this thread is multiple, including proposals for games you'd like to see on the board, ideas for games you plan to host (so people are aware of what games may come in the future), reserving a concept or a scenario to avoid having too many games on the same subject, and so on.

If well used, I'd imagine this could allow us to coordinate games more efficiently, as well as measure public interest on the ideas people may have.

Alright,
First of all, a game based on 1914 will start either in April or May.

To make games work, the best way to guarantee that is I believe to write scenarios making sure this isn't one clan against an another but more many forces, candidates seeking various goals.

This or a 1948/1988 Election Game

As for myself I'm fully occupied with Forward (2012 Election Game) and The Death of Kings (ASOIAF-based game), but I would like to reserve a concept for an historical game to host at some point, although I have no idea when.

()

Provisional Title: "Dynasties and Empires"

Context: A game set in 1519, right at the onset of the Protestant Reformation, the Spanish Conquest of the Americas, the supremacy of the Ottoman Empire, the conflict between the young monarchs Henry VIII of England, Charles I of Spain and Francis I of France, and an election for Holy Roman Emperor which might decide the future of the Empire.

Among the playable characters one would find famous monarchs such as Henry VIII, Charles V, Francis I, Manuel I (Portugal) and Selim I, as well as other relevant characters such as the beleaugered Pope Leo X, James V of Scotland, the infortunate Louis II of Hungary and Bohemia, the Republic of Venice, the conflicting King of Denmark and the Swedish Regent and so on.

And, given the richness of the moment, the wide cast would also allow interaction with characters such as Cardinal Wolsey, Martin Luther, Moctezuma and the conquistadors, Richard de la Pole (last of the Yorkist claimants), Catherine of Aragon, the explorer Magellan, and so on. The game would most likely feature turns of one year, so we can advance into a much different world.

I was bored the other day, so I also took the time to make a map for future use (with the undiscovered areas hidden, as players will have to be both skilled and lucky to discover much of the New World):

I guess I could either reserve or Propose this idea:

Provisional Title: "After the New Blue Dog: A 2016 Election Game"

Summary: Based off my surprisingly smash hit of a Timeline "A New Blue Dog for America's Health" (Here: https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=281052.0), it is the year 2015 and the impressive Presidency of Phil Bredesen has gone by Eventfully and now he is no Longer eligible to run for Office, With both parties hoping to get their own Candidate in the White House.

For the Democrats, currently, with the current President not being allowed to run for another term. With the Vice President, SOS, SOT, and Senator Bernie Sanders taking prominent roles in the Leadership of the party, it seems that the party may have to discover new leadership. With this in mind, the new leader does certainly look to be an establishment Candidate from either the Administration or Congress.

For the Republicans, after two big landslide defeats, they are completely shattered with both outsiders and Establishment Candidates vying for control for the party. With the GOP totally divided, anyone could become the Nominee. The question is, will they be able to re-unite a destroyed party.

With both parties getting ready for war, could a Third Party be able to sneak through and win?

(Things that happen in this game might be retconned in the TL, but everything that happens here will be it's own separate timeline from the TL once it starts)

In Case anyone was wondering, here was the Primaries and the 2012 Election in this version:

2012 DEM Primary:

()

Pres. Phil Bredesen (D-TN)
Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)

2012 GOP Primaries:

()

Former Gov George Pataki (R-NY)
Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR)
Former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA)

2012 General:

()

Pres. Phil Bredesen (D-TN)/VP Blanche Lincoln (D-AR): 529/59.8%
Former Governor George Pataki (R-NY)/Former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK): 9/30.1%

With odds like that, he probably would just say to running again at all.

In this Mad Season a 2020 election game.

Robert Muller indicts President Trump in May 2018 which leaves Mike Pence to be president. He later picks Ohio Govenor John Kasich as VP and the Republicans end up losing the senate and barely keeping the House.

I need a co mod to do this with me.

I don't think you know what indictment means..

Someone can be indicted but still not convicted. Indictment just means you have charges held against you.

Yes, he was indicted with charges but the charges were eventually dismissed. The case stated that Fletcher had no actual relation to the scandal, and the person who gave him the charges was a hyperpartisan attorney general.

I'd recommend a 2020 game...though I don't want to run it, and ideally it shouldn't start until after the midterms.

Someone would have to agree to play as Delaney too, as he's already in the race.

While I can't compel people not to host games, I've said several times oversaturation of election games helps no one. In fact, it hinders games, reducing potential players and dividing up efforts an energy.

with the recent death of The War of the Three Kingdoms, I would like to offer a Historical Alternative for it called
Brother vs Brother

()

Summary: It is the year 1861 and the American Civil War has just begun. With the United States in chaos over the issue of slavery, France is looking to create their own empire in Mexico while Prussia looks to expand her power in the German Confederation. While this happens, the United States is fighting it's own civil war with the South fighting for her own independence from the United States and preserve her southern culture while the North fights to hold the Union Together. With the world now in chaos and with the ability that anyone may be able to come out on top, the top dog may be the unexpected one.

Important characters will be important Union and Confederate Generals, Otto Von Bismarck, Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Napoleon III, Maximillian von Hapsburg, Alexander II, Franz Josef, and Queen Victoria.

The most important area will be, ofc, the United States though there will be other places to be involved depending on what happens in the region. Factors will include War Exhaustion, the Economy, Starvation, and Manpower.

Will post this game if I get enough of a response.

How does this sound:

Quote
The New Normal - A 2024 Election Game

2020 Result: ()

Pres. Trump (R-NY)/VP Pence (R-IN): 350/48.7%
Gov. Cuomo (D-NY)/Sen. Booker (D-NJ): 188/46.3%

Closest states were Minnesota (within 3 points), Michigan (within 2.5 points), Nevada (within 3.1 points), New Hampshire (within .6 points), Colorado (within .4 points), and PA (within 2 points)

2022 Senate Results:

()

57-43

House

260-178

Summary: After the Election of 2016, the polls showed President Trump behind every Democratic candidate except for a few outliers. Andrew Cuomo of New York was said outlier and due to a terrible performance by him and his running mate, Cory Booker of New Jersey, they lost the 2020 Election in a landslide. With President Trump's second term finished, the Republican party are split between Trumpists, Never-Trumpers, and Hardcore Conservative, each of which supporting a candidate with varying results. For the Democrats, with Senator Bernie Sanders announcing that he won't run, they are scrambling to find a candidate that will carry the same success as Sanders did though the idea is lacking somewhat. Due to how unnormal the Trump Presidency has been and how each candidate is strange in their own way, Journalists have dubbed this election: The New Normal.

Rules: 1. You can get 3 endorsements per turn. A player endorsement does not count as an endorsement. these endorsements can boost your polling a tad bit but don't expect them to carry you over. (PM me for Endorsement confirmation)

2. You can air ads depending on the circumstances: If you are polling 8-10% Nationally, you can air one ad. If you are polling more than 11% Nationally, you can air 2-4 ads.

3. Just like every other game, this Election Game will have three phases:

Primary Phase: Assuming campaign announcements to have come earlier in the year, this primary season will take us from September 2023 to June 2024, with players from the Democratic and Republican Parties fighting to emerge as the frontrunner or even the nominee of their respective parties.

Convention Phase: Both main parties will enter this phase to decide on their eventual nominee, although the gameplay will be very limited if a player has already won his respective nomination. Should a party lack a clear nominee, a gameplay system encouraging backroom deals as the ballots move forward will be put in place. (Takes place in the month of July)

General Election Phase: Taking us from August 13th to November 4th, 2024, with eight turns of a week to account for the final stage of the campaign as players play the Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates, and potentially some key surrogates for their campaigns.

4. Debates are very important and may hurt or help you in the polls depending on whatever happens

5. Until the Early primaries, a Turn lasts the length of a month In-Game and is 96 Hours IRL. If a candidate hasn't posted what they deem necessary, they will be affected greatly in polling.

6. Like other games, I will use a number randomizer to determine positive and negative news for the candidates. 1-5 will be positive experiences (1 being great news) and 95-100 will be negative experiences (100 being terrible news). 6-94 will be no news. Real life news will also feature as part of the game for players to exploit (or influence).

7. Third Party candidates are allowed to join, but their respective gameplay will be focused on the General Election. The only exception is the Americans Elect Primaries, which may be a factor if a player wants to run for their nomination (thus making them more successful and relevant than in OTL).

8. If your candidate is not included in the provided list below, make sure to personal message me so that I can approve/reject the candidate. Please make your candidates realistic (they must be real people who would plausibly seek the nomination in 2024, if you don't know if they could work, just ask). Wink

How does this sound:

Quote
The New Normal - A 2024 Election Game

2020 Result: ()

Pres. Trump (R-NY)/VP Pence (R-IN): 350/48.7%
Gov. Cuomo (D-NY)/Sen. Booker (D-NJ): 188/46.3%

Closest states were Minnesota (within 3 points), Michigan (within 2.5 points), Nevada (within 3.1 points), New Hampshire (within .6 points), Colorado (within .4 points), and PA (within 2 points)

2022 Senate Results:

()

57-43

House

260-178

Summary: After the Election of 2016, the polls showed President Trump behind every Democratic candidate except for a few outliers. Andrew Cuomo of New York was said outlier and due to a terrible performance by him and his running mate, Cory Booker of New Jersey, they lost the 2020 Election in a landslide. With President Trump's second term finished, the Republican party are split between Trumpists, Never-Trumpers, and Hardcore Conservative, each of which supporting a candidate with varying results. For the Democrats, with Senator Bernie Sanders announcing that he won't run, they are scrambling to find a candidate that will carry the same success as Sanders did though the idea is lacking somewhat. Due to how unnormal the Trump Presidency has been and how each candidate is strange in their own way, Journalists have dubbed this election: The New Normal.

Rules: 1. You can get 3 endorsements per turn. A player endorsement does not count as an endorsement. these endorsements can boost your polling a tad bit but don't expect them to carry you over. (PM me for Endorsement confirmation)

2. You can air ads depending on the circumstances: If you are polling 8-10% Nationally, you can air one ad. If you are polling more than 11% Nationally, you can air 2-4 ads.

3. Just like every other game, this Election Game will have three phases:

Primary Phase: Assuming campaign announcements to have come earlier in the year, this primary season will take us from September 2023 to June 2024, with players from the Democratic and Republican Parties fighting to emerge as the frontrunner or even the nominee of their respective parties.

Convention Phase: Both main parties will enter this phase to decide on their eventual nominee, although the gameplay will be very limited if a player has already won his respective nomination. Should a party lack a clear nominee, a gameplay system encouraging backroom deals as the ballots move forward will be put in place. (Takes place in the month of July)

General Election Phase: Taking us from August 13th to November 4th, 2024, with eight turns of a week to account for the final stage of the campaign as players play the Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates, and potentially some key surrogates for their campaigns.

4. Debates are very important and may hurt or help you in the polls depending on whatever happens

5. Until the Early primaries, a Turn lasts the length of a month In-Game and is 96 Hours IRL. If a candidate hasn't posted what they deem necessary, they will be affected greatly in polling.

6.

More people in one game means more competition and more gameplay overall. We hardly have any candidates who actually ran in the 2012 game.

Considering how amazing Concert of Europe was and how disappointed I was when the English Civil War game was cancelled and Windjammer's World War I game was delayed, I believe that someone should make another historical strategy game. My recommendations are a 16th century Italian Wars game, a Thirty Years' War game, or a Louis XIV wars game.

I'd like to strongly endorse this and encourage someone who wishes to host a historical game to do so. I am in no state to host (nor will I be for a while), but I would very much enjoy playing one of these games.

Basically just BoP in the Kaiserreich world. If I were to host, I would definitely need your help on doing so. I know a couple of folks were interested.

Oh, I'd love that! I played Kaiserreich on DH and I love the mod, it certainly offers much potential as a BoP style game. Myself I cannot host because of my present condition (which led to my inability to continue The Death of Kings) and would wish to play, but I can offer necessary input and advice (or help with maps, backstory and the like) without problems.

As for myself I'm fully occupied with Forward (2012 Election Game) and The Death of Kings (ASOIAF-based game), but I would like to reserve a concept for an historical game to host at some point, although I have no idea when.

()

Provisional Title: "Dynasties and Empires"

Context: A game set in 1519, right at the onset of the Protestant Reformation, the Spanish Conquest of the Americas, the supremacy of the Ottoman Empire, the conflict between the young monarchs Henry VIII of England, Charles I of Spain and Francis I of France, and an election for Holy Roman Emperor which might decide the future of the Empire.

Among the playable characters one would find famous monarchs such as Henry VIII, Charles V, Francis I, Manuel I (Portugal) and Selim I, as well as other relevant characters such as the beleaugered Pope Leo X, James V of Scotland, the infortunate Louis II of Hungary and Bohemia, the Republic of Venice, the conflicting King of Denmark and the Swedish Regent and so on.

And, given the richness of the moment, the wide cast would also allow interaction with characters such as Cardinal Wolsey, Martin Luther, Moctezuma and the conquistadors, Richard de la Pole (last of the Yorkist claimants), Catherine of Aragon, the explorer Magellan, and so on. The game would most likely feature turns of one year, so we can advance into a much different world.

I was bored the other day, so I also took the time to make a map for future use (with the undiscovered areas hidden, as players will have to be both skilled and lucky to discover much of the New World):

()


I really like this idea and will put it in my pocket, with Lumine's permission, for when the Encore of Europe reaches its natural conclusion.

developing another game, in the case that WofE is DoA. If you want to know what it'll be about, PM me. I'll allow WofE another 3 days until I say it's officially dead and I post the new game. I'm working on the replacement right now just in case and no, it won't be an election game.

I wouldn't mind attempting to run the game...but I wouldn't be particularly good at it either, so I'd need a co-GM. If you were interested in doing that (or if NHI was, as I like when he does election games) I'd be happy to to at least co-run the game, doing the Democratic Primary, and being partially responsible for a general election should we get there.

So. Question, and I realize I'm new at this, but I was actually a long time player of older Nation sims if anyone remembers those ( Qpawn, SPC, Nations, etc ) back when I was a lot younger.

Would anyone be interested in a game centered around the United Nations and role playing the respective member nations? Perhaps primarily focused on the UNSC at first, and then expanding to the UNGA if enough people want?

Just an idea I had.

Assuming you plan on having Hillary as President in that scenario, I would be happy to sign on as an incumbent President Clinton.

In the case that Dynasties and Empire dies off (which I hope it doesn't), I might have a game ready. But I would need a Co-Mod for it and it would need to be decided from these 7. Whichever one gets the most support, I'll do :

1. Hundred Years War game
2. Eighty Years War game
3. Seven Years War game
4. American Revolution game
5. EU4 Game (1444-1821) game
6. Fall of Rome game
7. War of the Spanish Succession game

Remember, when the one with the most support is decided, I will only post if D&E is officially dead. I won't dare try and run a game separate from it at the same time and I would need a co-mod for it.

I would hate to see Dynasties and Empires die off, but Lumine's prolonged absence has got me worried. In the event of its demise, I would love to play one of those games, especially 80 Years' War, War of the Spanish Succession, or Hundred Years' War. I'd also be tempted to co-host, but I have no idea how hosting works and I'd need to be taught from scratch. It has always been a goal of mine to host a 17th century game.

Who would be down for an althist game? It's loosely based off of an old EU3 game I had as Poland, and will be largely influenced by OTL events. Some of the people will be familiar.

You've got 3 choices:

1. Full restart from 1836. Most of the theater is in northern Erikssonia, with a dispute over the Aroostook Territory in OTL Maine, Teian independence, Jerusalemite colonization plans, and Russian and French plans to colonize central Asia. There's a bit more room to go off and freelance here.

2. We continue on from where the guys on AAD left off in 1842 (along with a simulated turn). Here, the Aroostook War would be an Erikssonian victory, Teias would already have seceded, and the fracturing of the Sikh Empire creates an interesting power dynamic in India. Also, Louisiana and Scandinavia are reaching a crisis point in Oregon Country, which may take a turn for the worst. In essence, it would be a continuation of my game in AAD.

3. We do a time-skip to 1850. The Crimean War probably won't happen - nobody really cares that Russia expanded into Georgia, and the Intermarium has its own problems to deal with. Interesting features are Louisiana dealing with the newfound abolitionist movement in the Rust Belt, Jerusalem's impending colonization plan, Russia's modernization, the expansion of the Brasiglian Empire in South America, and the start of the Taiping Rebellion in Asia. This is a bit more structured.

Although Dynasties and Empires has yet to finish, and afterwards NTP's game will presumably occur, I'd like to reserve a game for future use:

King and Country

In 1669, Europe is at a crossroads. Although it has been over 20 years since the Peace of Westphalia, Germany has yet to fully recover. The fortunes of the House of Habsburg are being eclipsed by a rising French hegemony, and some fear that Louis XIV, the "Sun King" of France, may attempt to establish a universal monarchy on the lines of Charles V's over a century earlier.

Meanwhile, religious differences are largely being displaced by political and commercial interests. Reasons of state are now more important than ever. The notion of a "balance of power" is also just beginning to be established. In the Age of Absolutism, the fate of Europe depends on the whims of the crowned heads.

Some of the playable characters would include Louis XIV, Charles II of England, the Spanish, Portuguese, and Swedish regents, Leopold I, Johan de Witt, Mehmed IV, and more.

It's a creative idea, but we'd probably have to start somewhere before Election Day 2017, so we can include the Virginia and New Jersey Gubernatorial races (because those are really important too).

If we did that, I'd happily call either Barack Obama or Joe Biden, because they are the Democrats strongest surrogates who are not up for election (though Biden would at least have to think about about a possible Presidential run).

Also, if we did this, we could agree to continue on to the 2020 elections afterward, doing both the Presidential and Congressional/Gubernatorial races.

I'm drafting up a new type of game - a world-building game.

Basically, instead of being given a historical scenario and building off of it, we start from scratch. Everyone picks their own nation on a map, their own capital, and builds from there. In essence, instead of me giving people prompts, it's completely open-world. If there aren't enough players, I'll make up NPCs.

I'm not sure if the EU3 game I previously mentioned is more interesting, but I'd like to see the world-building tried out (maybe after Spamage does it).

How do you think a midterms game would work? It does sound rather interesting. We could form teams of players, maybe, and have them be candidates with team leaders (Pelosi and Trump, maybe), and the other players play as candidates. It sounds pretty fun, actually. I'd be down for being Pelosi.

Have you ever played President Infinity? Something like that with fundraising, ads, organization... something like that. Throw some RNG content in there. I like the idea of teams too. Maybe by party and or caucuses. Progressives, Blue Dogs, Neo-Cons, whatever you call a Trump-aligned ideology, et cetera. There was a game called President Infinity: The Race to the White House - A Political RPG​ on AH, I'd we should look in to that for some ideas.

But if indeed the game meets its demise, I might like to host my King and Country game that I proposed earlier in the thread. Would anyone be interested in that?

I'd let you take the next spot, ftr. My intention's obviously not to screw NTP over.

Title: Re: Game Suggestion Thread - (Proposals, Ideas, Reserves)
Post by: DKrol on January 10, 2019, 06:47:38 pm
There are three game ideas I am currently working:

1) The War of 1812. The British have just burned Washington to the ground, forcing President Madison to flee the city. How does this war progress? Has the American experiment failed? Meanwhile, war rages in Europe, with the British fighting Napoleon's French Empire on the continent as the Frenchman looks to build an empire from Iberia to Siberia.

2) A New Era. Set in 1901, just after the death of Queen Victoria. The young King Edward VII sits on the British throne as fissures in the great British Empire began to develop. How will he respond to these challenges and set himself apart from his mighty mother? Across the Atlantic, the American President William McKinley is seeking to build an empire of his own and has come into conflict with the Spanish in the process while also having to deal with a rise in radical labor at home.

3) Gods and Men. It is 1630. King Charles II has just reclaimed the throne of England in the name of his late father. Now he must deal with rebuilding his kingdom, as well as dealing with matters of faith, as rumors abound that he harbors Catholic sentiments. The tides are also turning in foreign policy, as the Anglo-Dutch alliance established under Queen Elizabeth is fraying and there is support growing for a pro-French policy in court.

Does anyone have any thoughts or input as to what idea they like the most (or dislike the most)?

Well, the last idea sounds very similar to my proposed game, but since I don't have time to host I would indeed like to play in your version of the game. I'd certainly prefer it over the other two proposals. As a sidenote, I chose 1669 because it seemed to make more sense to me to choose a year in which Europe was at peace, but 1660 works too.

Frankly, I've always thought we need a Napoleonic Game, the last one to take place there was one of the earlier ones some five to six years ago. I'd probably play all three of them, but some Napoleonic setting is something that I think has a lot of potential.

Would people rather see a new nation game a la Dynasties and Empires or a new mock parliament a la The Great Experiment? I'm very open, and interested, in moving down either path.

I think that the nation game, if that's the path, would be a War of 1812/Napoleonic game.

Both sound excellent to be honest, and would enthusiastically play either. 1812 would seem slightly more appealing not knowing what the mock parliament setting would be, what did you had in mind?

If that is the route, I would go with something similar to your Great Experiment, although probably set a little later on. Probably either the 1860s (post-Civil War) or the 1910s (as a build up to the Great War).

I'm interested in launching a potential alternate history scenario. It would be based on Mock Parliament to some extent, but it is a different concept for the most part. I'd love to have a more experienced moderator (like Lumine) co-moderate the game with me!

I'm envisioning a game that is similar to your standard presidential election game, but with a parliamentary system instead. Each player would be the leader of a party (listed below), and would have to campaign with candidates in select ridings. I'll provide an electoral map and list the specific constituencies in the country (351 total), and the players would be responsible for targeting key districts/ridings/constituencies, winning debates, running ads, etc, etc, etc.

I'm looking for experienced players, as the number of slots are limited. The reason I'm being such a dick about this is because I intend to use the results of this game as part of a timeline I've been working on for years :P. Afterwards, I'll use the results to write the timeline's prologue and setting up the foundation for a possible sequel should this one be successful.

As an aside, I also think a 1720s game could prove to be quite interesting. An underrated period, it saw a break from usual 18th century fare due to the French and British, enemies throughout all the rest of the century, forming an alliance against the Austrians and Spanish.

So, I've decided that it'd be for the better if I write the timeline first, and then once I reach the present day, I'll try and run a scenario based on it. It'd be no different than any of our previous games aside from the setting. Each player would take a party leader, write up a schedule, campaign on various issues, make ads, support critical candidates in targeted constituencies, etc, etc. However, starting such a game without fully outlining the history behind it would leave to many blank holes to play past.

But I'll keep everyone posted in case there's an interest.

The only issue with this is that many prominent Southern politicians are minorities, and a Confederate nation would probably still have at least segregation, these people were called "Fire-Eaters", that is how committed they were to not having racial equality

What I'm envisioning is a South where slavery is abolished ~1890 and replaced with an Apartheid-like system that eventually gets abolished with the Civil Rights Act of 1991 (ie, citizenship and voting rights). Even now 2019, private businesses can still refuse services, which would be an issue.

If I created an alternate universe (IE, develop a history, fill in who is Congress, Governors, etc), would anyone want to use it for an election game? I can't moderate due to time constraints but I think the idea is fairly interesting.

I think I may finally have some time to host a game, though that time may run out in about a month (though if I start the game soon and it continues longer than a month, that'd be fine). Therefore, I'd like to host King and Country (which has been moved from 1669 to 1670) relatively soon. I'm about 1/4th done with the initial prompts. Hopefully it doesn't conflict with the new ASOIAF game. I'd also need some help learning how to host, so I'll probably reach out to some people via PM and get a co-host to be in charge of mapping.

How does the idea of an Elder Scrolls Game taking place immediately after the events of the full game, excluding the Skyrim Civil War, sound?

You could play as the Argonians, Dark Elves, Stormcloaks, Altmer, Wood Elves, Redguards, Bretons, The Khajit, The Orcs, and the Empire and weave your way through political crises, war, and intrigue in the world of Tamriel. And, because I really am focused on being fair, I'll give hints about the crisis for the next turn in the form of riddles in a PM. And since I have little to no interest in interfering, I won't touch the game outside of writing midturns and writing the new turns and post turns in a non-biased way with a cohost to help me in that sense.

If anyone is interested in being a probable co-host and making sure I don't go dumb in the game, please message me. If anyone is interested in seeing the game, lemme know.

Post by: Cabbage on May 11, 2019, 06:20:01 pm
So, when 2020's done, I was thinking of doing one of the following two scenarios:

O, Say Can You Sieg

Based on the list of Presidents I posted in the election what-ifs forum, this one takes place in 1984. More than twenty years after President Adam Hilliard's death, America is still unrecognizable. African-Americans make up less than 1% of the total population. The largest minority groups are Asians in the West Pacific Colonies (Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, and Indochina), many of whom, following the relaxation of Hilliard's racial laws by President Reagan in 1978, have moved to the West Coast states. For the first time since 1932, however, there is a challenge to Democratic Party rule: the Republicans have returned. As happened in Europe in 1969, a more lenient, moderate leader has led to multiparty democracy once more.

Notable Democratic candidates include: Representative Newt Gingrich from Georgia, Vice President George Smathers, Louisiana Governor David Duke, Senator Michael Gore* from Mississippi, and vaunted economist Lyndon LaRouche

Notable Republican candidates include: New Hampshire Governor Jimmy Carter, Former Connecticut Governor George H. W. Bush, Representative Jim Thompson from Illinois, Massachusetts Governor Robert F. Kennedy, and Senator Walter Mondale from Minnesota

*: Michael Gore is not related to Al Gore, Sr. or Jr., but is actually the grandson of Henry Gore, accomplice to President Adam Hilliard and in large part the architect of the American Holocaust

If this one is too dark for this section of the forum, I totally get it, but it would have felt weird to me to suggest the other and not have something for this.

Men of Steele

Based on the same post (other list), this game takes place in 1960. With the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower coming to its close, the battle to succeed him has begun in earnest. As Steele maintained some veneer of democracy during his time in office, it was easier to transition back to a full-fledged two-party system following his retirement. And so the American people are faced with a competitive race for the first time in thirty years.

Notable Democratic candidates include Senator Lyndon B. Johnson from Texas, Senator George Smathers from Florida, Governor Nelson Rockefeller of New York, Senator Strom Thurmond from South Carolina, and Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., from Massachusetts

Notable Farmer-Labor candidates include Vice President Richard Nixon, Senator John F. Kennedy from Massachusetts, Senator Hubert H. Humphrey from Minnesota, Governor Pat Brown of California, and Representative George McGovern from SD-01

I have a possibly interesting idea: a Presidential jungle primary election. After a few token primaries for each party (probably Iowa, NH, SC, and Nevada), a national primary would occur, and the top PV finisher from each party would advance to the general election (same format as today). If I do do this game, it would probably be set in a Trump retires 2020 or 2024. Is anyone interested in this?

To be honest I would be beyond enthusiastic for a game with Garlan as GM - though I'd probably wouldn't have the time to play -, it's just that with the HBO Ending being so... let's say controversial (and questionable in terms of the politics) it may be too soon? Perhaps a different setting (ASOIAF or historical) might have even greater potential.

The Freys game in which Garlan was the GM was great, maybe the idea would be better for the game to happen after Bran's death, but as for other scenarios, maybe the Dragon Dance?, Or one of the Blackfyre Rebellions ? but I think several other scenarios that may be more interesting than the world of Got after Season 8 I'll admit.

There's certainly a lot of scenarios within ASOIAF, thankfully. There's indeed the Dance of the Dragons, the Blackfyre rebellions and the Great Council of Aegon V, there could be an alternate end to Robert's Rebellion that ends with a Great Council to elect a King, and so on.

I usually walk at a time thinking about how it would be a game in which Robert's Rebellion ends differently and a Renly as a child is King on the Iron Throne and then would advance to 17 years ahead and could have several changes in the recent history of Westeros.

Not bad! There was a Fan Fic I read once - a decent one - in which Jon Arryn ended up taking the throne after a very messy end of the war, that should be interesting if you fast-forward and he dies without an heir (no Robin, for example). There's certainly room to experiment.

Three of the best games I have played were DiplomaCraft, Lord of the Crossing, and the old Roman game(in the 60s/50s BC). Iíd particularly be interested in rebooting the Lord of the Crossing.

I've given upon TT at this point as I don't have that many ideas for it anymore. I might do a 2024 game soon, but right now, I want to dip my toes into a mini-nation game where everything is determined by RNG (simply because the idea is for a TL I'm doing on the site (Yes, it's find a Remedy)) but I really don't have a general idea for the thing except for how it begins (it begins prior to game events).

anyways, this is the map ()

I'll lay out more groundwork soon, mainly background summary for it, though the far beginning of it is in the TL, so feel free to check up on that.

I would love to participate in a new version of Lord of Crossing, it was really a great game, the scenarios in the past with more potential I think would be The Conquest of Aegon (maybe an alternate version in which Aegon resolves to create the New Valyria Empire and was conquered Essos rather than Westeros), Dance of the Dragons, and almost all Blackfyre Rebellions (Blackfyre's Second Rebellion did not last long enough to set the scene for a game in my opinion).

I would love to play Dynasties and Empires again if you were able to rehost it, though it's also possible Spamage could host a third Concert of Europe game around that time. Additionally, I'm considering hosting another game (the 1725 one I mentioned earlier), so I'd like to shamelessly advertise here to ask if anyone would be willing to serve as an assistant GM to be in charge of military affairs and mapping. I'd only host though if I'm sure that it wouldn't conflict with either your game or Spamage's.

I do have a plan for an Election Game where the Democrats get clobbered after two terms of President Kerry (2004-2012) and they have to climb their way back in 2012. Meanwhile, the Republicans will be overextended and will have to pick and choose the states they want.

It'll be unbiased mainly because this is what the 2012 Senate Map will look like

()

All lean or toss-ups states are Republicans and the Likely D States will go to the Democrat no matter what they do.It'll be up to the Republican player to choose which incumbent/candidate to support and which to abandon (You won't be able to campaign for them all)

Also, the Generic Ballot for the Election will be 43-43, for most of the race, though it will fluctuate a point or two for either party depending on the turn results (and no, you won't need to post images, feel free to post links to google docs for your speeches so the image policy won't technically be broken.

Anyways, I promise to be as fair and even as possible in this game and would to see if anyone is up to the challenge I will force on both parties.

(Yes, I know this scenario is unrealistic and I'm not going to try to have it to be. This is just a background for the game)

I have a game in mind but I struggle with maps and polling, if I could have a co-mod, we could get it running. Itís a really interesting idea and I think that it would be lots of fun

If I was to start a 1912 game based around Keys to The White House starting on the 20th or earlier/later that doesn't have Wilson, Clark, Roosevelt, or Taft run for President in that year, would anyone be interested in playing? Also, would somebody be interested in helping with the RNG and stuff, that way the load on one person can be lessened somewhat?

It will likely be months before I have time (perhaps the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021?) - and before things stabilize enough to make a player base likely -, but I'd like to reserve a couple of concepts for another Mock Parliament session in advance.

Mock Parliament 1: American Civil War - I have always wanted to simulate the Civil War, and unsuccessfully tried to do so in Balance of Power 1861. Not sure if the setting would be the historical war itself (starting on 1861 or 1862) or a sequel to The Great Experiment (the 1789-1794 game about a US parliamentary system) before a Civil War happens, but I'd love to see a game in which players could roleplay as politicians or generals and influence the course of the war.

Mock Parliament 2: French Revolution - Another setting I'd like to try, mostly because I'd love to see how players would roleplay Robespierre, Fouche, Danton and so many others. Likely to be either a 1792 setting or a 1793-1794 one.

Possibly start at the election of 1860 and then let it spiral from there? Either way, I am perfectly happy with either idea for the American Civil War, as I have been having a resurgence in interest following my finding of a series of videos debunking the lost cause.

Lifting my reserve on a French Revolution concept, keeping a reserve on an American Civil War game as my next tentative project, hopefully once the thesis is finished in a few months. A few more details:

Project A, Direct Civil War Game: Sort of a combination of the BoP/CoP format, some of the concepts expoused by more recent games (NTP's attempted Civil War games, perhaps the Keys to the White House format), and some ideas I outlined a couple of years ago. It essentially allows players to roleplay historical characters and influence the course of the Civil War as politicians or generals in the Confederacy or the South (or, if the cast is large enough, perhaps other groups as well), potentially starting either with the 1860 Election or, for a more streamlined simulation, April 1861.

Project B, Mock Parliament Sequel: It would be a sequel to The Great Experiment, starting in the 1850's once the party system collapses. Players would be allowed to form new parties and take it from there, dealing with a number of issues like slavery, expansion and industrialization (this is a more open ended concept, which may or may not end in a civil war).

This is a long term thing, but will be happy to hear ideas, suggestions or interest from other players as well (though god knows what things will be in the near future).

Post by: Huey Long is a Republican on May 30, 2020, 08:34:35 am
I think the Direct Civil War Game works best starting in April 1861 or maybe shortly after the Battle of First Manassas would work best? If that one gets the most support, I'd like to reserve either General Thomas J. Jackson or John C. Breckenridge.

With Out to Pasture nearing completion, I might do a 2012 Election Game, though I'd probably need a moderator to help me with some of the things that happened and I'll change a few things from 2008 and 2010 to make it somewhat different from the others (Mostly, it'll be the changing of certain Senate/House Races that were extremely close in OTL but flipped D/remained D (Such as AK, MN, and OR Sen 2008, DE Special Sen (Mike Castle).

I'll probably look for a co-host to help with the ideas and such and I do have a two-three people on my mind for that and I'll let them know if enough people say that this sounds like an interesting idea. Also, Obama, as well as the OTL Republican Candidates, will be barred from being a potential candidate that year to add more uniqueness to the campaign.

For anyone curious, CT, MA, MN, OR, and RI Gov flip Republican/Remain Republican.

I'd be interested co-hosting, or playing in the Democratic Primary in such a game (goodness knows my Hillary and Biden skills haven't gotten enough of a test).

That said, you probably should reconsider barring the real-life Republican candidates from running (with the exception of Romney, perhaps). A successful Gingrich campaign, or a successful Santorum campaign could be very interesting with the right player.

I am preparing an alternate 2016 election game in an TL in which Gore won in 2000. I know that there is already another game with that idea, but the only thing the 2 have in common is the divergence point, and everything goes on a radically different route.

I'm getting the itch to host a game again, and it's becoming increasingly hard to ignore. My idea this time is for a game set in 1683, with the provisional title of Catastrophe Mundi, the name of a contemporaneous pamphlet of astrological predictions that, among other things, foresaw an Ottoman conquest of all of western Europe.

Now, I know we are in a pandemic at the moment, which may have been the main reason my last game failed. However, I believe that this game has some advantages that my previous one lacked. In my judgement, King and Country failed in part because it was set in a relatively insignificant and uneventful year, thus dampening player enthusiasm from the beginning. This game, on the other hand, has the advantage of being set on the eve of the Battle of Vienna, an exciting scenario that could promote greater player engagement.

So, if enough people express interest and I can find a co-GM again, let's get started!

I yield the Civil War simulation concept, will eventually be doing a Mock Parliament sequel to The Great Experiment set in 1854. Partly because research has resulted in me realizing what a fascinating period the 1850's are, partly because a direct Civil War simulation has the potential to be somewhat more insensitive if not handled properly (possible Confederate apologism and all).

Regretfully I can't play Dkrol's game because of a genuine lack of knowledge of Canadian politics, but would probably sign up to play a new strategy game (particularly a Wallace-run one).

Don't have the free time now, but I've been debating doing a KttWH game starting in 1788 in my royalist America timeline. George Washington would be the king (because duh), and the Constitution would have the following edits:

  • The executive branch now consists of the king (elected for life by both chambers of Congress [i.e. must pass through both chambers by a majority vote]; likely to change to a popular vote once that stops being viewed as mob rule) and the prime minister (elected in the same way as an OTL president, except early on each elector only gets one vote). Prime Minister appoints a deputy upon taking off, but unlike our timeline, said deputy does not need to be from a different state than prime minister. This deputy is effectively vice president.
  • King is Head of State and Commander-in-Chief; Prime Minister is Head of Government.
  • While impeachment and overriding of veto against the Prime Minister are the same as OTL president, the king holds absolute veto power, but can be ousted by what's known as the doctrine of sic semper tyrannis, wherein a vote of three quarters of both chambers of Congress (or a two thirds vote in both chambers backed up by a simple majority of Supreme Court Justices) accusing the king of "tyranny, incapacity to fulfill his duties, treason, bribery, or high crimes and misdemeanors" will result in the king being overthrown and a new one being elected.
  • Everything else is pretty much the same.

The game would open on the leadup to the first prime ministerial election, with players free to form their own factions to morph into political parties, coax major political players of the day to their side, and, as time goes on, help to shape the young new kingdom (although no, you will not be allowed to get rid of the monarchy). Won't be up until at least August, and maybe later than that.

If I end up doing this, it won't be until after CoE 3 is concluded. Any suggestions for time and place that people would be interested in and also in how realistic (i.e. should deities and/or magick be a factor?) the game should be would be appreciated.

Unlike other short term interests, I find myself still fascinated by this period after several months.

The 1932 German game has been really inspiring in terms of providing a different way to do things, and I'd really like to adapt the format, which I think is also well suited to the Civil War and would allow people to roleplay a wide array of characters. Thinking of allowing players to briefly roleplay a "Prologue" with the 1860 election and formation of the Confederacy (so as to perhaps allow for different USA and CSA leadership) and then start at some point within Fort Sumter and Bull Run/Manassas.

I would be very interested in a Civil War game

I'm considering doing a game set in the aftermath of the Anglo-Irish Treaty in the early 1920s. It'd be similar to the Weimar game.

I've been thinking of doing a Keys game taking place in either the 1960, 1968, 1980, or 2000 Elections, with the latter going to 2032. I won't start this game until maybe October or November, but I'll like to see some thoughts on this game idea.

I have two ideas for games, tho given the research and prep I'd want to do ahead of time, they wouldn't start until after the election at the earliest.

Idea 1: Romance of the Three Kingdoms

Players could choose to start out as either rulers or generals. Generals would be free to try to become rulers, but a kingdom that hopes to reunite China is going to need more than a single player.  Armies with more local control will do better then those being managed from the capital.  Not only that but rulers will only be able to set general policy or run an army each turn, not both.  I could see using the basic idea to other settings, but the R3K location and time period is probably the easiest to iron out the kinks of running such a game.

Idea 2: Bronze New World
I fondly recall reading the BANW timeline on soc.history.what-if back in the days before there was a web and newsgroups were the height of social media on the internet. While the game would not use Doug Muir's masterful timeline, the game would start in 1493 with reports that the madman Cristoforo Colombo who has been plaguing the courts of Europe with a hare-brained scheme of a "shortcut" to the Orient has returned to Spain with tales that he managed to get most of the way there but that the Indians in the islands off the coast of the Orient were stranger than reports from the East would indicate.  The Admiral of the Ocean Sea has brought back various trinkets that some think a fraud, but at the least they are an interesting fraud.

I was a big fan of the first KttWH game and it's a shame it petered out.

Same. I was also thinking of doing a reboot of my Troubling Times game with the only catch being that the otl candidates/major candidates can't run, unless you're choosing to run as George Wallace. So that means no Nixon, Rockefeller, Reagan, Kennedy, Johnson, Humphrey, or McCarthy, which opens up the field quite a bit more.

Reagan was barely a factor in 1968. He should be allowed to run.

Also, replace someone on that list of Democrats with LBJ, given you seem to be implying he would be allowed to run (as the incumbent President, he'd start with a big advantage, assuming he could get through the primary)

I said Johnson, meaning LBJ. But I'll include Reagan. I might start the game tomorrow or the day after. We'll see
