      So, instead of me posting this on s1914 which I was going to, I changed my mind and posted it on the S1942 since there hasn’t been a major RP, so I have made one.
      The rules are just something you’ll have to live with since spamming is easier to do here than in s1914.

      Starting date - 1888, January 1st
      1 Day - 6 months

      History
      In 1861, April 13. The CSA had came to the Union's capital of Washington D.C and had open fire. This was the start of the American Civil war. 3 weeks after the opening bell of the American Civil war, became under siege by the Confederate armies, its leader was general Robert E. Lee. Unknow by the Confederate army. USA president, Abraham Lincoln was still in D.C along with over 40,000 Union soldier, as the Confederate army had over 100,000 men and around 300 guns aimed to level the city. The battle had last one month, wave after wave of Confederate troops attacked and fell back. Until the last wave of Confederate army came. An overwhelming mass of 30,000 troops supported by 70 guns. The Union had no chance to hold them off for another 1 day for the army from New York to arrive. The Union only had around 3,200 men left to hold the city and within 2 hours in battle, the army was down to under 600 battle ready men. Once the battle was lost, the whole of the Union army that was in D.C was called to garrison the White House to hold off as many men as they could. They didn’t last long and by 9:24 pm that same day The whole of D.C was under control by the CSA. In the White house, laid 295 Union men and the US president, Abraham Lincoln. The Union navy had been trying to help, but due to the Confederate subs along with the whole Confederate navy, no Union ship was able to help the fight in D.C, all that they could do is watch as their capital fell. Abraham Lincoln had asked his vice president, Hannibal Hamlin to leave D.C, but when he tried; he was shot and killed when the Confederate ambushed the small force that was set to keep him safe. That would leave US general Grant to lead the US. The first move that he had made, make peace with the CSA.
      1 months after the end of the battle for D.C, the CSA had won the civil war. Months after that the Union had started to fall apart as their army was shaken and its navy with no meaning to help. The Union was seen by the world as a failure to even keep its own people under their watch, but it was later found out that a mass of European countries like the United Kingdom, French, German and even some Spanish help, was the main reason to victory for the Confederates so fast. It was told that over 1,000 heavy guns and $135.1 million dollars was sent. The US was furious with Europe, thus it would lead to the US having to build up its broken army to plan again how to retake the south and possibly even Canada from the British


      Later on around 1870, a massive Ukrainian, Polish and Lithuanian revolt for its freedom from the Russian government which up until then, has been replacing the people that had lived there; with Russian supporters and Russian nationalist. The fighting had came out of nowhere with most of the Russian army still around the Japanese border after Japan’s huge military build up.
      The Ukrainian, Polish and Lithuanian rebels setted up their own governments, Lithuania and Poland had formed together to make the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth, and with Ukraine staying as it would, but those two countries would be the best of friends seeing that they have still needed to fight to become free as Russia has been moving over their lands without asking time after time.
      Seeing that if massive revolts can even take down the biggest of powers, countries like the UK, Swedish Empire and the Ottoman Empire start to make social freedoms for people that are not British, Swedish Turkish etc, sometimes if they would speak out against the state, they would be put in jail for “Seeing the devastation of the Great State”. The suppression of the of the people mostly had started in 1879
      As for the Americas. Slavery was never put out in the south and life went on like normal. June 26th 1880 Until Irish nations took the streets of Dublin and demanded freedom from the British government. When the british government put what the Irish said to the side. The Irish nationals had started a island wide revolution which took the British government by shocked hearing it but the revolution was easy to put down but the Irish people still wanted freedom. And once more, everything was fine until October 31, 1882. Much like in Ireland, the Norwegian government which more or less was annexed again by their overrules, the Swedish Empire. 2 weeks, much like in Ireland, the people of Norway had made a revolt wishing to become its own country. But it faced the something that the Irish had gotten, their revolt had failed as well. As what had happened after the Irish revolt, all went back to normal life but, the Swedish military had now started to crack down on any pro-nationalist movements.


      And without much surprise, a similar revolt happen in the Ottoman empire, Canada and Algeria. These revolts had started to make countries around the world start to think that that if they had a vassal, their vassal would want freedom. Some countries like the Netherland made countries like Indonesia a free nation; as did the Danish which made Iceland and Greenland free nations.
      In 1890 all in the month of October, a multi national revolution had came out.
      Irish, Iraqi, Norwegian, Algerian, Canadian and Syrian plus, even some Armenian.
      With this shock of multiple revolution attacks, The United Kingdom, Ottoman Empire, Swedish Empire, and the French Empire; must now fight back the waves of nationalist looking for the freedom of their beloved nation.

    • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Rebel nations

      As you can bet, most of the rebel nation or at least some will die off since the numbers and how outmatched they are. Plus since we don’t to kill off players (cough cough) I will allow nations without lands to live in other nations.

      Possible Questions
      If I am a rebel nation but no one lets me in their country, what do I do ? - Simply this, you join as another country like Bulgaria via landswap. You are not allowed to live in the sea with 1 person.

      If my nation is destroyed and someone is willing to let me in their nation, what do I do ? - You move whatever is left in your army and move it to that country. Note that once your nation is no longer on the map, you can ask from nations to help give men to your cause which would be given back later on in the game. They can give mech troops but nothing more than arty.

      Rebel nations can get nations to support them.
      Example - Syria loses. Syria runs away to Russia and Syria Russia make a plan to come back to Turkey forcing Syria to become a free nation if they win. Syria asks other countries to help them become a nation.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Wars

      Without question, war is apart of every Roleplay no matter what you do, and countries sometimes take more than it should have, so there will be a limit on how much land will be able to be taken in a war; it will also be broken into differ amount you can take from continent to continent.

      Africa - 4 cities/provinces
      Europe - 2 cities/provinces
      America - 3 cities/provinces
      Middle East - 3 cities/provinces

      *These Rules do NOT apply for rebellion nations until they are a free nation.*

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Vassalions

      When your nation is vassalized after a war, there will be a time limit before you can become a free nation again. The time limit before you can rebellion to be a free nation is 2 years (aka 8 months). You can not leave your “master” until that time is over, but if your master makes you do something against your will (ex - Tells you to take the blame for a war he started, wants lands that you need, treats you like a doll etc etc) then you only need to be his vassal for 1 year before you can rebellion and become free.

      If your “master” will not accept that you have won the war and became a free nation, then you have the right to take his lands as long as at least 1 nation supports you. Once it comes down to that then you can make him your vassal or take cities from him.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Units

      Units Allowed at the start of the game

      Militia
      Regular Infantry
      Armored Cars
      Anti-Tank
      Artillery
      Destroyers
      Submarines
      Curiers
      Battleships
      Commands *ONLY FOR REBEL NATIONS*

      Units *NOT* allowed
      Planes -
      Fighters in 1910
      tactical bombers in 1920
      strategic bombers in 1915
      Naval in 1921

      Motorized infantry (not until 1920)
      Mechanized Infantry (Not until 1939)
      Light Tanks (Not Until 1915)
      Medium Tanks (Not Until 1930)
      Heavy Tanks (not Until 1935)
      Tank Destroyers (Not until 1935)
      SP artillery (Not Until 1940)
      SP Anti Air (Not until 1940)
      Railguns (Until 1915)
      Rockets (Until 1943)
      Nukes (If we get this far, 1946)
      Rocket fighters (1950, good luck with that)

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Spamming

      We all know tanks and armoured cars are god OP, so to stop that, each country *CAN NOT SPAM THEM* clear ?
      All tanks and Armoured must have have an escort by infantry, since the cavalry would always have support in infantry. Also, for artillery, since I guess people still spam that *cough cough* artillery must be escorted by 2 infantry units, no army commander would ever leave their most valuable open to attack, that would just never happen.

      As for the oh so great tactical spam which we all do, *don’t even try and do that* simply put, this is a RP, play realistic. If this was a regular game, I would be fine but it's not, so do not spam. Fighters, keep it to air attack since fighters only really ground attacked in ww2.

      Until around 1917, strategic bombers are ballons. Tactical bombers are heavy bombers and fighters are biplanes. After that time, call them what they are.

      Subs, we all spam them, here, no no, no spamming subs, since A. no one really used them till ww2 to be real. and B, name me a country with over 200 subs in this time, take your time you won’t find one.
      Battleships can only be built when they have 10 destroyers and 7 cruisers escorting them, since battleships were the pride of everything back then. UK has a cut with this, they need 7 destroyers and 5 cruisers, since they had like… 50 battleships give or take.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Breaking Rules

      If you are found breaking the Rules, you will get 3 warnings, then I will build a nuke and threaten you to stop or I will simply nuke you till you stop. Deal ? good.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Admin rules

      Since a bunch of people do not know this rule, I will say it again.

      Any troops which you cannot have, due to the time of the game, you MUST give the troops which you cannot have to the game admin so they can be destroyed.

      You also can NOT tech ahead of the time

      and finally, you can NOT gain better tech from anyone else but the admin

    • This is an interesting concept for this game; limiting the extent of what each nation can research. I like that.
      Does the game do it or is it an honor system?
      By the way the history reads, The USA could be a rebel country (because they lost the war and is trying to regain what was lost) or not.
      I'm new to the game. What is trolling? Am I correct in saying it is harder to 'spam' if you are not a member of the High Command?
      It says we can't use personal names but can we use historical names?
      I agree to all the terms and won't willingly or knowingly break the rules.
      I would like to play as USA with President Grant as my leader.

      the USA isn't a rebel country since it has a standing government and isn't fighting to become a free nation, like Canada or the Arabic people.
      Trolling is kinda like..... prntscr.com/9voskl wot that says
      spamming is when you build a lot of one unit and not any other unit

      As the game begins it is 1-1-1888. The US had just finished elections and current president Grant had lost the election to the socialist Eugene V. Debs. The country is unhappy with any previous military leaders and wants a clean slate.
