Okay, the setting of this roleplay will be on an alternate, fictitious Earth. Every nation that exists today does not exist. This Earth is a little larger than RL Earth with many more countries of much larger size. There is a World Assembly similar to the UN but it lacks anywhere near the power and the world's superpowers are largely left to work things out through diplomacy (and quite often) military force. Technological advancement, species, and different races are all the same as in real life, it's just the actual nations and geography that are different. The RP takes place in 1995, during the height of a war between Tauron, a massive, Christian, Capitalist, Constitutional Monarchy and Troperan, a tropical Communist dictatorship similar to Cuba (albeit much larger)
A few years ago, Tauron found itself engulfed in a civil war between loyalist and communist factions that led to millions of deaths and injuries and left the nation economically depressed for years. The Emperor and his regime eventually accused the Troperanian Government of supporting the Communists (and rightly so) and in 1994 declared war and invaded. The war has progressed steadily since then with heavy casualties on both sides and the Tauronian (tahr-on-ee-un) Military claiming more than half of Troperan's territory during a series of systematic victories last summer. It is now the beginning of winter, 1995. The weather is beautiful, the temperature mild and comfortable and the nation ripe for violence. You can play a Communist soldier or guerilla fighter, a Tauronian conscript or just a civilian caught up in everything and trying to survive.
So, what say you RP Guild? Are you open to the idea?
