It's not as good as I'd like it, because I'm bad at making Year in Reviews - but nevertheless the 2017 Year in Review is finished (only three months late!).

I would love to have a go

Would love to have you, there's a link on the OP that'll give you the basic rundown on getting involved - can always PM/Steam me if you're confused.

Looks neat! I like the map.

Glad to hear it!

* reserved, just in case *

I'm posting this thread here because I was hoping to grow our player-base; I'd like to expand the world, but I also don't want to add more NPCs.

Ziemia: A Forum-Based Medieval RP
or, how Monkey copes with his autism

What Even Is This?

Ziemia is a role play game set in a non-fantasy (with a fictional world) medieval period. The game revolves around players controlling their own dynasty, principally through that dynasty's head, and their dynasty's holdings; striving to achieve their own power and influence in the world. The game itself is run by means of both a forum and personal communication between players; the game has mechanics and light rules that the admin (DaMonkey) uses to guide everyone's story forward.
How Does It Work?

Players use a wide array of means - politics, diplomacy, intrigue, military - to cement and/or expand their dynasty's power and influence in their realm and world. The holdings players own, either directly through their dynasty or indirectly through vassals, possess certain resources that they can use to expand through force of arms or economic power; or, players can use politics (namely marriage) to better their position in the realm. Ever fifth day of the month, a new "turn" begins (which in peace-time is a month of in-game time).

Yeah, Ok. This all seems pretty ambitious for a forum game...

Well it kind of is. But in regards to this point itself, this isn't a "new" thing; it's the third iteration of something a few of us have been refining for a while now. It admittedly isn't the smoothest thing ever, but its depth is great and it has provided some very memorable moments to its players. Current and past players you may know are myself, Xethos, and Olafson.
So how do we even find information on this?

Though this is a forum-based RP, it's expansive enough to where I cannot run it simply off of an FSE thread. Thus, there is an external forum that I run it off of. You can click THIS LINK to be taken to a thread on our external Forum that will give you some more basic rundowns on the game. Currently, there is a large war taking place in the RP, so you have plenty of time to think and contemplate on it before being placed in the world. It also, contrary to first glimpse, does not require a massive time or effort investment - you can be as involved as you'd like. Groups of people and communities are also welcome to join in bulk, though placement in direct proximity to each other is not guaranteed.

In my opinion it's not the best for things like linebattles, since if RNG decides you fall off your horse you're unlikely to get it back, and since there's no reliable way to furnish a new horse even if you don't die you're less than useful to the team afterwards.

The feature itself is neat.

I'm not sure how Xethos will react to becoming a meme.

The great thing about no one posting here is that I don't have to actually bump threads.



Not that I'm any good with decent ping, anyways.  ;)

"Majority systems create stronger trust in politics! They create stability!!!!1111 THINK OF THE WEIMAR REPUBLIC!!11".

I've heard of the Weimar Republic being used as refutation of some things, but not that. I can tell it perturbs you, though, from all those numerics.

I'm not so sure that holds much water. States are still going through all the trouble of holding elections, those votes are just not being calculated for a national plurality/majority. Amusingly, it was a measure to ensure that Virginia and its similar southern States would not impose its will through brute political force on New England (remembering that back then, Virginia was basically the mack daddy); it's basically the reverse now but it's the same purpose.

EDIT Also note that it wasn't even particularly difficult to hold election, as not many people even actually voted. Remember that it was restricted to adult white men who were at least (40? I can't remember the age requirement) and owned land or some form of real estate (house or business that wasn't rented).
