Darn it, I was really hoping to be in the first turn,  I guess I must wait, unless I misunderstood something(I haven't slept in 2 days)

The first turn runs tonight - I am sending Erik requests but since we are starting with a conventional start for the most part, turn 2 will still be very early in the game.

You said you would PM each team  with screenshots, I have received no such PM, and I have seen in the people speaking like they have seen them. Has turn 1 even run yet? Did you not send the PM's yet, or did you just forget about me?

Turn 2 thread in your side forum will have a link to the zip file of screenshots.

Just as a note - I will be away from the computer for the next 24 hours.  Next Friday I will also be away from the computer all day.

Have a good weekend teams.

Thank you once again for working hard to get the first orders in.  Right now both teams have valid orders and once you decide if you want to make any changes we can run the next turn.

Orders are due by Wednesday at 5pm EST.  That said, if no orders are given, I will just continue the pre-existing orders.  Of course, if you have changes, please submit them before then. 


Also, if both teams are okay with the orders as is, letting me know before Wednesday will mean I can run the game sooner, which will move the game along.


Also, as of right now, upon detecting a new built ship is a "turn stop" event.

Hope all had a good weekend.  make sure you are finalizing the turn so you are not rushing at the last moment.

That in the UN thread currently is a mess I have to say, but I have some suspicion why you react this way now. Our system of voting and which position singular players hold is vastly different to yours, so I guess Red Dot felt we didn't represent us seriously (both, in the Cafe and now) when sending people that aren't highest rank?
That would explain this ridiculous lieutenant colonel invention, or the third secretary nonsense, because in your system every player is already ambassador or some sort of leader of military or design or whatever, and you would only speak in their name normally - an important name.

The system we have however works much different. We randomly drew 5 officers from the official list each, who then grant us voting influence in different sectors, depending on what position these officers hold. (positions have been given meritocratically to talented officers so far, and more responsibility means more vote)
Though we are not technically restricted to not invent other characters, these 5 likely form most of the RP of each player. If we want to say something, we use one of those that seems most suited, but of course far from everyone can be Admiral-Super-Chef, so you see us presenting Captain of 2nd Rank (=Commander), Colonels instead of Generals (which is still Captain equivalent, mind), or non-leader politicians (still interim-ambassador though).
They are of course especially low ranked now in the beginning, because the original seed only gave each nation a single admiral for example, and the rest captains. So this demographic will likely rise in time, but it is good this way, because that gives opportunity for growth stories for your officers.

Since you all invented your own characters, who all get some major administrative fleet admiral, or science director uber-position I assume, I get that it may strike you as odd to be dealing with normal personnel, but really, who cares, because it is still realistic (probably even more - the king doesn't build every house personally), and there is no difference as long as these people have their mandate for negotiation.


So now you know that this is no lofty or snooty acting on our side. Both these meetings were meant completely serious, and I hope that it was just this misunderstanding that you were reluctant to bring up the same on both these incidents.
It is just agonizing to see having well prepared meetings completely ridiculed and disregarded. We might as well drop RP altogether if that continues to go this way every time.

Well, it was never clear who we were talking to. We discuss foreign policy internally, and the ambassador speak for everyone (he has no real power otherwise though: anything serious will go back to be discussed and voted on by Congress, where we each have a vote with Red Dot being tiebreaker as president).

So, are you each representing only yourself, or are you talking in the name of the Russian federation?

I think this is just a misunderstanding that the NAU was not under the impression that this was more in the lines of offical representatives and not just role playing minor figures.

We also counsel about what we want to do. Plans are presented, including for diplomatic course and points on a meeting, and when we agree, then the people you speak with here are actually representing Russia's opinion, yes.
Hmm, there has recently been more liberalization in dealings so as to speed up talk ignition, because that has been lacking in the past. However, I figure whenever something is really at stake, like in some trade deal, that would need asking back, so you can't buy all our ICBM bases by promising someone Swordlord to give back Alaska. ;)

Anyway, really formal meetings that have been introduced for, what, weeks now, are of course ratified, with negotiation mandate and all.

I think this is just a misunderstanding that the NAU was not under the impression that this was more in the lines of offical representatives and not just role playing minor figures.
Yeah, these figures we have are indeed our outer face. ..And inner too btw. .
Well, well, the song of different ideologies and misunderstanding.

I am glad my Third Undersecretary of State for Global Affairs got this mess untangled. I was getting very frustrated about the perceived lack of profile of our RC discussion counterparts.  I think I even used the term "underling" and "minions" in our Team Thread. With Vandermeer's explanation, we have a better idea of who we are dealing with.  IRL, we would have had a better idea of the system of government of the RC and better knowledge if our counterparts were adequate to the level of discussions. With that being clarified, Dr Pinscher-Doberman will not be attending the meeting in South Dakota.

All Delegates have been empowered with the voice and Authority of the Central Committee, to conduct all business in accordance with the prescribed objectives.

The Central Committee votes on Policy, then the delegates are directed to actively pursue that policy, bring critical matters to the central committee to vote as required.

Any dealings with the delegates of the Russian Confederation, should be conducted as if the meeting is with the Chairman of the Chairperson of the Central Committee themselves.

Ok, make sense. I'll provide a copy of our Constitution to Jane's Information service so you have an idea how we're working.
