Empire of Man (EoM)
« on: January 19, 2018, 04:24:48 PM »
I made some python code to generate royals and so on.   And I am going to use it to run the background in my first Aurora Game of 2018. 

Some rules for this.

1.  Running it as a imperial government.   Politics will exist, but not elections since I don't want to deal with that. There will be a imperial senate and more importantly, a imperial household. 
2.  Ships will not be able to be upgraded very much.   No engine or armor swaps.  only able to upgrade some weapon systems or sensors.   
3.  Conventional start since I like those starts
4.  The Military Industrial complex means that I will have a fair bit of ships, even when as a player it makes no sense to build stuff early on. 
5.  25 research, and 4 shipyards 800 million population start. 
6.  As always, I welcome anyone who wants to recommend ship names, propose ships to the bureau of ships, want to have your name put in as a officer, and so on.  Also of course, royal family members need names. 
7. Generally I will not, but I reserve the right to SM in stuff if needed. 
8.  My generator does give personality to the created folks.  So when a empire changes hand to the next one, there could be a change in both how the empire operates and priorities and so on. 
9.  Long live the Empire!  :P 8)

War in the 21st century is a terrible thing.

Some still debate what was the trigger, and some argued that the war started in the early part of the century, and just never ended, until it suddenly did.  On November 11, 2038 the world ended for billions of humans.  By 2045, 6 billion where dead but  the world had cobbled together five blocks of surviving nations.   The Trans Pacific partnership, the North American Union, China, Russia, and the Council of states.   However the environmental and physical damage to earth was massive, and only 800 million survived.   However the survival of the species was guaranteed by the work of Gideon Wessex, a Anglo-american who discovered how to grow food in the wasted lands of earth, and how to generate the power to keep the cities lighted.   However his company held a monopoly on some of the key items needed to feed the starving earth, and he called forward representatives from all major powers and made a Faustian bargain.  He would sell the needed chemicals at cost to each of the nations, in return they would form a new world government, that him as emperor, and they could send representatives to a imperial senate, which had oversight on his actions.  Each of the five powers were given leeway on internal governing.  And then he leaked it to the press.   The concept of cheap food for all was too strong for the starving mass of humanity, and the stability afforded by the Imperial peace has allowed for investments to once again be made. 

(Note, I will update in 5 year intervals unless something cool happens, which might be 20 years from now, or if I figure out a cool story.)

Imperial Family in 2050.

Gideon Wessex - Age 25 - First Emperor of Man.     Noted as Kind, Gruff, and somewhat easygoing.
Stella Wessex (Nee Vickers) - Age 20, Empress.    Noted as being Cruel in person, a defender of the poor, and a believer in odd things and dark rituals.  Sister to the Senator Vickers.

Imperial Senate

All are Earth based senators.  Listed in seniority.   The number in () is their age as of 2050.

Victor Cruz (53)
Paulo Sao  (35)
Elina Chang (40)
Rebecca Samulson (38)
Lukas Vickers (51)
Xemin Xi (59)
Savely Baskin (48)
Oleg Rudnik (43)
Akira Ito (52)
Mr. Tanaka (71)
Grace Park (35)
Luis Park (38)

Power Factions
TRA - Terran Republican Army - They feel that Terra should be under the rule of a republic with elected government
Power: Weak 
Influence: Weak

(Note, the TRA, and other resistance groups will occasionally carry out terror attacks (blowing up ships, killing Senators or imperial family).  Won't bore you with the details.  Once colonies are made there could be resistance groups that want independence of colonies.

2050 had a few items of note. 

The Imperial couple carried out there constitutional duty,  and had twins!

One male, one female.

Jamie Wessex is now Heir to the throne.   
Contessa Wessex is now 2nd in line to the throne. 


In addition, the Empire of Man started to launch ships, of course, these ships where promptly outdated by the development of Trans-Newtonian Technology.   See attached photo for a description and drawing of the classes.   Tokyo Commercial shipyard is building the Jules Verne, while Bengal Shipyard is handing the smaller Asimov Class.

The Berlin and Bunker Hill Classes

(Yes, I know they are not amazing designs, and note these are very early in the game. 


As a note -

I am going to just run this game till it gets to a fun part.  I have some Python code I have written that automates elections, How long kings live, how many kids (and if they are legitimate or not) and so on. (and since the elections are automated, I will run elections that drive policy. (Parties might be expansionists, pro navy, pro PDC, and so on).

So when I get to something worth writing about I will write about it. otherwise, it would just be stuff like election reports, which I do not think people will find fun.

Interesting idea to generate the royal family. As someone less technical I wonder if I could let Aurora do something similar using the commander names. Maybe give a 5% weighting to an easily distinguishable race and then rename them all to be members of the royal family with a huge promotion bonus. If at any point they all die then the line of succession is declared broken. I suppose you'd have to keep reducing the family % as you built more academies or you'd be overrun with princelings. 

On topic I have to say that the rng name generator has been a little cruel to you. Stella Wessex nee Vickers and her children Jamie and Contessa are not the most... "Imperial" sounding of names. I suppose you could make it an "The Only Way is Essex" inspired game, main colony worlds of Ibiza and Magaluf?

The RNG helped with the future names - Leo, Elizabeth, and Haakon.

I do like those coloney names, The Manchester system worlds just had names for them.

I am working up something for the 2066-70 era.  Now in 2069.   Sadly, not encountered any bad guys yet to provide action, so I might make a terror strike story or something.    ;D

Not a actual story, but more of "background" for the story that being worked on.  This goes into detail about the noble houses, which provide story fodder as right now I not even met spoilers yet. 

The Year is 2070, the 20th Year of the Empire of Man.

Imperial family. (House of Wessex)

Gideon (Age 45) Emperor of Terra
His wife, Stella (age 40), Empress

Their children are
    Jamie (age 20), Duke of Luna, Heir to the throne.
    Contessa (age 20), Duchess of Volksgrad (Honorary)
    Leo (age 17) 2nd son of the Emperor.
    Hakkon (Age 10) 3rd son of the Emperor.
    Elizabeth (Age 7) 2nd daughter of the Emperor.

Also noteworthy
William FritzGideon, (Age 5), the illegitimate son of the Emperor.   

Noble Houses and other notables

Sol
House Mayon - 2nd Duke of Mars
House DeWitt - Duke of Europa
House Kim - Duke of Callisto
House Zombeck (f) - 3rd Baron of Io
House Viklander - Baron of Ganymede
House Thewlis - Baron of Titan

Outside of Sol
House De Vere - Baron of New London (London System)
House Redgrave - Baron of Ibiza (Manchester system)

(Titles are giving by population. < 1 million, no titles, 1-5 million, Baron, 5-100 Dukes, 100+ Archdukes).   On marriage females of the imperial household form a new house.   When a new Baron is to be created the priority is.

Younger sons of the emperor who are 18+
New Houses distaff of the imperial household
New House

The lesser houses are only detailed as I need them, and as you may guess, I have a python script to automate every 5 years to see if there is any change of their status (new house takes over, or it becomes vacant to be refilled) the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so on is how many generations of that house have held on to that title.     

The Duke of Luna is the heir to the throne. 

I also welcome colony names, as I will need some soon.  House names are fine too.
