    EVENTS GENERATOR

    As you may have noticed, there's been a great decrease in roleplay activities inside our Region during the last months. To diversify our RP, and in order to give more inputs to players, then, we administrators have decided to come up with this: a random Even Generator.


    What is the purpose of the Generator?
    Th Generator has one, simple, goal: to give to players random inputs for roleplay.

    How will it work?
    Here it is the big question. Which needs a long answer. First of all, a new kind of countries is to be introduce: NPC countries. They will fill up the whole map, joining our fictional International Community as NPCs (the lands they occupy, however, will still be claimable). The Generator will allow us to pickup a possible event (see the list below), and to attach it to a specific country. At the end of this first stage of the process, the event will look like: "Event X happens in State X". The event is thus posted here. Then, it can be further expanded through the addition of PC countries, like: "Event X happens in State X, with consequences for States Y and Z (PC countries)", or with other details, at the discretion of the running administrator of the Generator. After few days, then, the event can run in the Regional Diplomacy section as a normal RP event.

    Who will administer the Generator?
    The administration of the Generator, and the responsibility for generating RPs, will be shared by the Regional administrators on a rotational basis, usually one month per admin. Of course, if a player wishes to participate in the process, he can do so by informing us of his intentions.

    How many events will be generated?
    Basically, the random events will be generated everytime roleplay activities on the forum are decreasing. This could happen once per month, or twice, or more. It depends.

    Is it compulsory to participate with my country if it has been picked up by the Generator?
    Of course, the answer is: no. As I already said, player countries will be involved in the events only in the second stage of the process. When the results of the pick up will be posted here, the player involved could refuse his participation. In that case, the administrator will pick up another player country.

    Who will start the consequent RP on the forum?
    In theory, everybody willing to do so. If the administrator's country isn't directly involved in the event generated, then the choice could fall upon a player involved. But there are no limitations.


    Here follows a list of the macrocategories and their elements to be used by the administrators during the generations.

    Events:


    Political Events:


    • Coup d'ètat
    • Dangerous elections

    This is a fantastic idea.

    If I may suggest one NPC country, it would be the Free States of Argentine. Located to the north and east of the Aloian territories in continent of Diamanto, it is the successor state to the Argentine Republic. The Argentine Republic was formed when Aloian colonies rebelled in 1821 and the Republic dissolved in 2013. The Free States are a loose coalition of the former provinces of the Argentine Republic. Most of them have Spanish names and aesthetic, reflecting their initial colonization by Spanish-speaking Aloian priests, but they speak English now as a result of relations with English-speaking powers like New Zealand and Aloia.

    For suggestions about the States, submit a message directly to Arveyres Smile He's preparing the map with the new States. I'll simply collect the name from there. (of course, if we wish to give them some background as Aloia did, feel free to submit it here. Maybe at the end we could collect them in an apposite section).

    New map coming soon with NPC states, albeit unnamed (except for three, one by request of Aloia as Argentina, and two by my own request as Silla and Baekje).

    Here's the map I've come up with, I've made not as many huge states so we can have variation as to location of events with some form of randomization
