@All I don't have problem with previous contact or engagements. Mutual history is always good. I just can't allow it to affect starting numbers. I'd love to see you guys work together on a collaborative history.
If a couple of you do want to be, only mildly aware or unaware of the other, then that's cool too. Stats have to remain the same. I mean like three of you could already have relations and pay for the overseeing of the relays and the other three are newer fledgling nations looking for a foothold that's cool too. The balance doesn't have to be 3-3 could be 5-1 or 4-2 or whatever.
Guys it's your RP too. Just incorporate whatever and I'll be happy with it as long as it doesn't break or affect the numbers
