Mid-1800s BOP

Post by CarpeVerpa » 22:21:38 Tuesday, 14 August, 2018

Simple enough, I'm considering running a BOP roughly around this here frame of time. Feel free to vote and discuss which year you think would be the best time to start out at.

Also doubles as an interest check, I suppose. :v
Russian Empire - Balance of Power: 1845
Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia - Balance of Power: Overlord
Union of Soviet Socialist Republics - Game IV: BOP 1971

Not actually an ancap, thank God.

So, from an outsiders perspective, what would be the difference in the particular years at offer?

1830 would be a more basic start. Not much immediately going on, and stuff that can happen isn't due to happen right away.

1836 is the Victoria 2 start date, which I pretty much just added out of obligation.

1840 is sort of the same as 1830, but with a bit more development and closer to upcoming revolutions.

1848 would throw us right in the midst of the aforementioned revolutions.

I could help out with British Africa, if needed.
1990: Israel
Metal Gear: Iran
New Vegas: Salvador
Brazil: Proletarian Unification Party
1936: Empire of Japan
1971: China
Kaiserreich: CSA

Since basically no one (except 1 person) wanted 1830, I'm using it as a proxy for my write-in for 1861.

#DraftCarpe #1861OrBust


(Mostly joking, obviously do whatever you like... tho 1861 would be more exciting.)

Been awhile, but to show you all that I'm still interested in and working on this, here's a working map for an 1848 scenario.

Stats will be forthcoming whenever I get the mental wherewithal to finish them.

Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia - Balance of Power: Overlord
