Aurora MP - Starbound Prologue
« on: January 06, 2016, 05:33:52 AM »
Hi everyone. After a bit of thinking about this, i decided to write an AAR of the current game. To say this game is peculiar is somewhat reductive, since i'm only responsible for imputting instructions and effectively running the turn. Every strategic decision is handled by fellow players, in a roleplay style, ranging from the Rigid Democracy of the USA to the Ordered-1984-like Socialism of Oceania.
This means that production, research, shipbuilding and the general strategic course of the nation are all decided by players in "turns".

Since the game has been running for 9 years now in-game, i'll only post about the most important events that happened and then proceed to a quick recap of the situation (by then, we will probably reach the beginning of 2040, 10 years in the game).

The starting setup had 10 major nations. 7 ranging from Superpower to Middle power levels remain on earth, albeit two of those are decaying very harshly in influence, and can be expected to either be integrated or annexed soon by the other powers. Minor powers are not included in this count.

But, remain on earth does not exclude alien player controlled races, and as always who knows what do the stars harbor...

Finally, i have to point out that some informations will have to be omitted, because the players could be reading the AAR and sensitive information they were not supposed to know. So, hands down from that survey report, let alone the number of installations or even ruin presence on a planet! Of course, the more open the society of a nation, the higher the risks of a leak...but don't expect sensitive info on Russian stuff. That's for sure.

This will be like being a common citizen of a nation on earth, so i hope you are not hit by a nuke this will be a nice and new insight on a campaign!

This afternoon i'll be posting the first chapter, which covers the end of the middle east as a political powderkeg...mainly because after the deflagration no fuel remained.

I am curious and this seems likely to be a nice reading. Player controlled games like this are the best for readers.

Can I ask how this started? I mean, is it people from a forum? How did you find these players, how do you communicate and such? Can't help but be curious.

EDIT: also, after thinking a bit (and after posting this, so belatedly). If you want you could keep separate threads for comments and updates, like Steve does. Just saying :)

We are a group of people who meets on teamspeak. The server was born some 6 years ago for paradox games and now evolved into a quite big community, although we are still separated in "national" sections (we are all from Italy).

As for the separated topics, i'll do as soon as the "Backstory" topics are done with. They will cover some 3-4 episodes. Also, i still have to decide between 1 topic = 1 nation (on earth probably this will mean 5 topics) and one single thread for everything.
