United Nations Interactive Tales
« on: August 01, 2016, 10:04:37 AM »
Just for some background for the Setup for the United Nations Interactive Tales.

The United Nations Interactive Tales (UNIT) stories will be following the United Nations starting in 2050 as they start with a conventional start, and explore Sol and systems.   However, to make it more fun for the readers, it will be interactive.

Have a political party idea ?  Throw it in, want to submit a ship design? submit it! Want to name a ship? submit it!   As the story grows organically and guide the UN to its greatness, or watch it fall from gross failures.   

Classification Conventions

These are guidelines, not hard and fast rules. as you can see, I generally run a smaller ship navy.

< 5000 tons, commerical engine = Corvette
< 5000 tons, military engine = Frigate
>5000 tons, < 10,000 tons = Destroyer
>10000 tons, < 18000 tons = Cruiser
>18000 tons, < 25000 tons = Ship of the Line
>25000 tons = Capital ship

Some ships are named by role, not by size and tonnage. Some examples include Jumpship tenders, Carriers, SDBs*, and gunboats.

*SDB = System Defense Boat. 

Naming Conventions

I will accept name ideas submitted by readers.   I will generally accept any name that isn't offensive (thus, Boaty Mcboatface will get put on the list, Adolf Hitler will not)  and I will try to name ships with some semblance of logic (a epic name like Bismarck would be reserved for a key ship, while Mcboatface might end up on a SDB or a cargo ship.) 

Former UN Senators (which includes Former UN presidents by default), heads of the UN navy, and Star of Terra winners names will be added to the List as well.  Also ships retired from service (lost or scrapped) names will be added to the name list.  as well. 

Naval ships will have a UNN prefix.  Support ships will have a UNNA prefix.


Political Parties

Political parties will have policies of up to six things.   (Unless they are a single issue party)

1.  How to subsidize (if at all) shipping lines
2.  Exploration vs. exploiting what already discovered
3.  Tarraforming, Genetic engineering, and just leaving things alone
4.  Officer naming lists
5.  The overall militancy of the UN.
6.  Research goals

Readers can submit a political party who will be added to the lists of parties that will come to office when a chance allows them too. 

Ship submitting

The UN navy does not have full control of what gets built.   Readers can submit designs (closer to current technology the better) and many times the UN will build ships that the UN commanders will have to figure out how they wish to use.   So feel to submit a rail cannon broadside with all the missile ships.   Do remember that I will have a lot more smaller ship slots then big ship slots.

Note on what stories will come out of this.

I am starting with a conventional start - so some of the years will be..well boring. 

I will be doing 5 year updates in those cases, which may be more political then anything else. 
in events such as battles and so on there will be detailed writeups.  Also, you may have writeups when sometihing curious happens like wrecks found, first time leaving Sol, and so on.

Due to database corruption the space time continuum of the UNIT tales fell apart. 

I will have to make another tale game.  Perhaps a multi-faction start.
