    Default An 18th Century Roleplaying Game

    Related enough, I figured, to warrant a post:

    http://s1.zetaboards.com/18c/index/

    For those interested, we've got a little roleplay going set (currently) in 1793, playing on the national level (IE: You control a country, not a person).

    The rules section is pretty intimidating, but it's not too bad in practice. If you need any help, feel free to drop me a PM. I'm pretty sure anybody who's been on the ETW forums for any length of time will be able to figure out who I play fairly easily

    While most of the big powers are currently occupied (France, the UK, Russia, Austria), there are currently openings for a number of countries of interest, a lovely civil war in Persia and all sorts of conflicts brewing. A Prussia would be nice as well :P

    If anybody is looking for a less time consuming role it's also possible to sign up (with the original claimants permission) for a position as either the military or political arm of a country, splitting control and dividing up responsibility. It's quite a handy system. Anybody interested in signing up as the Russian military is welcome to do so.

    So jump in. Sign up. Conquer the world

    I should have known.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    It sounds like fun though, and could be a nice diversion to some people who are climbing the walls trying to wait for ETW. I have no idea if this is the right space though, local mods probably will

    Since this isn't really related to Empire it probably doesn't belong here.

    Instead I'll move it to the Entrance Hall, and leave a record here for a few weeks so people browsing here will still be able to see it.

    Sounds like an intersting game though. Should keep people occupied while we wait for Empire.

    Curses! Foiled again! And I'd have gotten away with it if it wasn't for you meddling kids!


    But yeah, it's a good distraction during those long waits between classes, or, if you happen to not be in college, any time you happen to be bored and in a wordy mood.

    Good to know I'm not getting instabanned, though

    EDIT:
    Alrighty, that'll work. It'll probably get more exposure there anyway :D

    Tsk tsk, you should be LEARNING right now.

    Speaking of classes, I have to go learn to math. Ah, the joys of early semester review accompanied by daily quizzes

    You guys should learn from home like me! I get to earn a degree while simultaneously doing whatever I like.

    It's the only reason I can spend so much time browsing The Guild .
