Hi guys,

I've got a game called Victoria II and I'm thinking we could use it to do some "roleplay".

For those who've never heard of Victoria II, this is a game in which you take the control of a country between the years 1836 and 1936. You make important decisions for your country and shape its destiny... it is a quite difficult game though and quite long. It looks like RISK but in much more complex.

So my plan is to make YOU decide what to do with the country that the members of the forum will choose and follow thoughout the game, the members will take the decisions, choose how to solve the problems that are posed to their country ... and trust me ! Their will be a lot of problems.

I plan to ask your opinion every 6 months, and everytime there is an important event (events happen very often).

So, could there be some interested members ? Interested members can tell me what nation they'd like to play. You can virtually play any nation that existed in 1836, although, I'd advice not to play a "great power" (first 8 nations : UK, France, USA, Russia, Austria, Prussia, Spain, Ottoman Empire), but a "secondary power" (countries like Belgium, Sicily, Mexico, Netherlands...).

After the great powers and secondary powers, there are the "civlized countries", and finally, most countries are "uncivilized".

If you are interested, I'm okay to start a game this saturday at 16 pm (GMT+1).

------

Votes :

1 - Two Sicilies : 3 votes.

-----

N.B : The game will last long and I can only encourage even the North American or Asian members (or where ever they come from) to vote for the nation they like Smile, because they will probably play as well.

Nope, I'm sorry if I did not expressed my self well. There is one country for all of you. It will be like "race to 2012" games, but with a lot more details, and a much more restrained period (1836-1936). Since I wont be able to play until this week end, I thought asking you to pick a country until then could be a nice idea ...

To Nornbear : In the end of the XVIIIth century, Poland was involved in many conflicts. It finally was conquered by the growing russian empire, Prussia, and Austria, it only won its independance back in 1918. Some factions like that can be freed or are "culturally close" to each other. Maybe that could be an objective for an upcoming game, but we wont be able to play Poland saturday, I'm sorry.

Italy did not exist as a whole, until Napoléon III's campaign (against Austria) in the 1870's that really disturbed the political situation of the country.

There are many italian factions : There is the two sicilies (southern italy, the sicily island + the south of italy), the papal states, piemont (milan and the surrounding), genoa, sardinia, venice, and some other minors italian cities and states (like parma).

As one of them, one of your goal is to, of course, unify italy, and later we'll probably have to face the rise of fascism and deal with it.

Glad to see some people are interested :p.

Actually you do not have to be good at history. You have to be good at making history. World War I can happen a lot sooner, with different sides, or even, not happen at all. The confederates can win the independance war... the important events do not HAVE to happen, yet some events are more likely to happen than others due to the choices you will make.

It looks like Two Sicilies is winning... but I can't edit my original post. I'll do a sum-up at the end.

I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one who've played Pandemic II.

So yeah... Madagascar was not a french colony in 1836, we could actually play it... but that'd be hard to make something out of this country.

Well, the game is starting in three hours, are you ready to expand your empire, colonize, industralize and make Two Sicilies a great power of the 19th and the 20th century ? We'll see Wink.
