Establishing a military alliance like NATO

Posted by theruler on 14 April 2019 in English (English)

Hey,

Right now, there is a lot of turmoil between countries (not in the community in general), and there is a need for an alliance, like IRL Nato, or Warsaw Pact (pre-1991). This can create more stability and protect smaller countries with smaller economies (My landmass is small, but i have a large and stable economy - so i am not a "small country with a small economy")

If this is a good idea, then we could create an alliance!

Ulethan Military Pact, Ulethan Pact, Ulethan Pact for Democracy, Ulethan Imper- ahem, Worldwide Peace Union, Assembly of Nations Peacekeeping Alliance etc. These names can probably suit the purpose of the pact.

Communism? Theocracy (yum)? Democracy? Anarchy? Monarchy? You name it, an alliance also needs an ideology, a way of thought.

I can agree with the idea. However, I think roleplayish things should be at a different place. Now the problem is, there is no "roleplay place".

OGF is mapping based, not roleplaying. I firstly think we need a separate place for roleplaying that will stand on the menu on top (along with View, Edit, History, User Diaries, etc), where we could have fun, and not intersect with the main topic of OGF - mapping.

If any of the admins see this, please react with your opinion, and take it into consideration.

If you are wanting role playing, then you are on the wrong site.

I think FSA has the role of "protect smaller countries" (I just think)

As I understand it, the difference between OGF and role playing is the following: OGF users can construct all kinds of alliances between their countries for mapping-related purposes, but not alliances between users for the purpose of competing with other users. Users can own countries that are in war with each other and at the same time cooperate in all possible ways as mappers. OGF community is all about cooperation. We have a shared goal: realistic, contemporary alternative world map. All that we do here should serve this purpose, not any hidden roleplayish purposes.

Roleplaying was not the correct term i meant. More correctly, i should have said diplomatic.

Even then diplomatic ties is a form of roleplay though....

The best thing you can do about the "roleplay" is to map an embassy between your and another country, discuss privately about your ties, and just make deals that would involve mapping. For example a ship route if possible, a neighborhood of the specific-nation's people. For example, Antigo, a North Korean inspired country made a huge nuclear launch site, because that's how they want to roleplay. Map a thing based on your roleplaying wishes, but don't overwhelm yourself with it too much.

If this happens, the totally democratic dictator of Skalenia is down for it.

The whole roleplay thing is a mess, in a sense we already are roleplaying by building fictional lands.
