We'll be using the Standard Rules, no fancy stuff:
SpoilerShow
Diplomatic Actions
Push for government reforms in NPC nation (-50 credits, if succeeded more support globally towards ideology plus increased relations with nation, name what reforms are requested)
Negotiate End of Conflict [-20 credits, can only be done for NPC-NPC conflicts (such as NPC nation vs. rebels) or You vs NPC, name what you will do to end the conflict]

Players may also send money to each other secretly or publicly as a means of funding. Mention in your turn whether you intend for your funding to be private, or public.

Economic Actions
Send Aid to NPC Nation/Rebels (-50, will improve stability and perhaps economy of nation while also improving relations with nation, -100 will improve relations more, -200 will dramatically improve relations, if given to rebels it will be secret and giving aid to a nation helps weaken rebels in said nation.)
Investments [-100 or in blocks of 100 (eg 200, 300), will raise economy, used too much and you will lose popularity.]

Covert Actions
(Note that if you do a covert action but don't get news of the results, but your treasury was affected, then assume it failed but wasn't caught)
Set up rebel movement in nation (-75 credits, if succeeded rebel movement appears in nation, if failed nation becomes enemy)
Influence rebels towards ideology (-30 credits, if succeeded rebels adopt your ideology, if failed drop in relations with nation with rebels)
Frame foreign nation (-30 credits, pick nation, then framed nation, will frame nation, causing loss of relations with other nation, if caught both nations become enemies of yours)
Organize secret bombing campaign against nation or rebels (-100 credits from nation, nation becomes enemy and diplomatic relations with other nations decrease if caught, will hurt stability, economy, and possibly military of bombed nation)
Coup government (-150 credits, if succeeded gain a new, loyal government in nation, if failed make nation your enemy)
Assassinate leader of nation (-30 credits, international condemnation if found, if not then new leader rises with stability hit)
Fund political opposition in NPC nation (-20, will help opposition win in selected nation when elections are held if successful)

Military Actions
Deploy/withdraw troops (-10 credits from nation each deployed unit, automatically counts as an attack.)
Attack with troops (-10 credits for each unit that attacks, inside your nation or in another)
Buy another unit (-50 credits)
Bomb nation/rebel group (-25 credits, nation becomes enemy and diplomatic relations with other nations decrease, will hurt stability, economy, and possibly military of bombed nation)
Increase nuclear program (-100 credits for level 1, increases by 100 each level)
Decrease nuclear program (+100 credits for turn)
The goal of the game is to roleplay the best and achieve your aims, whatever they may be. The game is played via private messages. The GM will send a credit report to each player for the turn and they select a list of actions they wish to do. This usually takes place every day or two days.

There is a system of nuclear war breaking out in the game. Any power attacking a nuclear opponent three levels or more below his own nuclear level is able to achieve nuclear primacy - effectively saturating and incapacitating the opponent's arsenal and avoiding MAD.

A nuclear level of 1 represents functioning tactical nuclear devices, massively increasing defense against conventional attack.
A nuclear level of 2 effectively precludes successful conventional invasion.
A nuclear level of 3 represents a number of functioning offensive nuclear missiles, allowing offensive threat of nuclear attack.
A nuclear level of 4 represents functioning ICBMs.
A nuclear level of 5 represents a larger arsenal of ICBMs.
A nuclear level of 6 represents a massive arsenal of functioning long-range ICBMs, enabling the complete destruction of an opposing player.
A nuclear level of 7 represents ICBMs equipped with MIRVs and deployed throughout the world on a sizable boomer fleet. At this level, it is impossible to saturate one's nuclear defenses.

The Doomsday Clock was started in 1947, and counts down the minutes til Midnight, with 1200 signalling nuclear war. The closer the minute hand is to midnight, the closer the world is to nuclear war, and hence, the higher tensions are running.

Mutually Assured Destruction ends the game.

Foreign spending and such do not require action points, you can freely adjust them each turn. Deficits siphon credit income away the larger they get, and if left unattended can slowly grow over time. Nations with the exception of the USSR (with the exception of perestroika) are able to 'pay' for an action by putting it under deficit. Large deficits should not be paid off immediately, as that can cause economic instability. Instead, it should be gradual (For example, 200 creds each turn towards reducing debt).

Master of Oblivion as... The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the first proletarian state in the world and also the largest, holding a commanding influence over the rest of the socialist camp, it's also widely seen as a tired old bureacracy-riddled project trying to get its groove back.

Gesar as... The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, a once proud world power laid low by war, the ever-increasing independence of its colonies and Yankees ascendant, facing troubles in the Emerald Isle as it continues to juggle decolonization and containment.

Scorpion as... The People's Republic of China, the second-largest Socialist state in terms of landmass and the indisputed leader in terms of population, it separated eight years ago from the USSR and boy has the split been weird for China: currently in the middle of an internal Revolution of sorts, it's also been busy remixing Marxist ideology and forming a Communist Third World camp for itself.

Snacks as... The French Fifth Republic, very similar situation as the UK's, except that it's led by world reknown personality and World War Hero Charles De Gaulle himself, it's also managed to maintain its status as a global center for intellectuality and culture despite everything that's happened, for all the good it does it in the geopolitcal stage...

Huojin as... The United States of America, the greatest and most powerful imperialist power in the world today, standard-bearer for Capitalism and Western Civilization, self-declared leader of the free world and "communism's worst nightmare." It's got the resources, it's got the guns, but most importantly, it's got the attitude to wage a veritable undeclared world war against its Russian-speaking counterpart.

Coin as... The Republic of India, probably the largest and most influential member of the "Third World" camp of underdeveloped and geopolitically-disputed nations, one of the first countries to be borne out of the post-war decolonization period, it's currently undergoing an economic upturn at the hands of its charismatic leftwing leader Indira Gandhi. To the West, there's its problematic muslim brother, and inside it's got a growing tribal revolution problem. (DISCLAIMER: I may have fucked this one up, lemme know what I got wrong and I'll adjust it, this here's just for shits and giggles anyway).
(It goes without saying, but it doesn't so I'll say it: RP'ing in Diplomacy and Newpapers gives you a better chance of success)

The idea is to aim for a turn every week or so. :burnshitfuckschool: So BE PUNCTUAL, once a due date is given out I swear to fucking gosh I shall be ruthless with late senders.

Sign-Ups are open as of this posting. Only nation-states not in the big NPC quote block are eligible. Slots are assigned on a first-come-first-served basis with complete utter disregard for seniority, personal preference or experience.

Have you ever played the BoP games, by the way? I once found one in Abandonia or somewhere like that and it was terrible. :(

India's good, though just FYI I'd rather we round up the Commie side before starting. If you wanna stick as India that's aight, this is more of a general request than a hard-and-fast ruling.

Well I'm quite happy with anything really. Though the UAR would return memories of former '68 games I'd rather forget :p India I chose as a broadly leftie realm, if neutral.

What would you prefer?

If Coin remains as India, I'd suggest we make an exception so that someone can also sign up as Pakistan (since they're not listed as a player nation).

Also in case anyone is curious/wants to sign up, my unofficial suggestions include Cuba, N.Vietnam, the UAR, and Israel. And Pakistan, if Coin remains as India. Though we'll seeee.

Good idea, makes more sense to have India if there's a Pakistan. Also, N. Vietnam is a more important Soviet-side country than East Germany at this juncture, good call.

You could always pick Cuba instead, so you can vaguely shake your fist at Miami and cause trouble in Africa :P
