I have no idea what the hell I'm supposed to say, so blah blah blah here it is.
I will be making small cities or villages on small bunches of bought land on several island areas. These areas are Australia, New Zealand, Madagascar, Hawaii, Samoa, Jamaica, and Antarctica. I did not take all of the land by any means, and all the countries or territories are running normally.
 
Anyone who wishes to oppose this say so and give specific reasoning.
 
I had this under construction long before these new empire rules, hence why I didn't account for them.

14 people don't seem to have any problem with it. A good start.

Honestly, I don't know when all of this became so serious... I like the name though.

@Sparrow_of_Aces: Don't take all of australia, I want the micronations

#5 Edited by _Psy_ (3410 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm building single cities, villages, or colonies per area. One city in Australia, one city in New Zealand, ect. I'd say all the land gained from this colonial period would be less than Texas.

@_Punk_: Might need to consult with hannigan, nowadays with current UN conventions colonization is a no no but hey have an rp mate to strengthen your claim

I've given it some thought and I think Lady Liberty would oppose the Hawaii colony. So she's down to battle for it.

But its all she cares about, the other stuff she won't fight over.

@Lady_Liberty
Just so you understand, I'm not taking all of Hawaii, only a small patch of land for a village. I'm not sure why she would get angry over that. Not only that, this is being done legally. He's not just swimming in and conquering, he bought the land. She'd likely be labelled a terrorist if she did attempt to fight it.

@Night_Rake: I think we went over that in a PM?

Anyway, we should figure out what the RPG will be. Her goal would probably be evicting the peeps and stuff of the Hawaii colony.

@Lady_Liberty: I didn't think Liberty would think herself to have the right to do that? 

There isn't much way to RPG this into existence, or at least not any entertaining way I can see.

@Sparrow_of_Aces: ...tell me then, how exactly should I RP my character? Share with me your wisdom about how the character I created thinks! Seriously now, that's crossing a line.

Well we gotta, its the rules now. I was thinking it could be Lara evicting the settlers from the Hawaii colony, and whatever force they send to try and stop her.

@Lady_Liberty: Touchy. I just didn't think that was the way she would act. She doesn't seem like one to commit a act of terrorism in the name of nationalism.
 
The main problem is they probably wouldn't send forces. They'd more than likely just ask for their resources back and pack up. They aren't soldiers, they're farmers, explorers, and craftsmen.

Are you talking about the people in Hawaii? If so, they've been modernize....

*sigh* even if its a single island, hell even just a town its still under goverment of someone not of the states. Its removed of American Soil or comes off that way to most hence LL would oppose it as its claiming American Land. Opening post Sparrow you go endepth on what was done to claim these territories and talk of starting construction. Then LL comes to Liberate US soil go from there be it fight discussion whatever. Maybe its long rp maybe its a rp done in a day. Either way we see a fun event rather then just land claim. ^.^

@Sparrow_of_Aces: Touchy? Punk you have been spoiling for a fight OOCly for a long time. We've all noticed, but we don't want to fight we just want to RP and get along. Me included. I just like to play the game and have fun. I tried my very best to be nice, and get along with you even in the times when you're behavior sometimes made that difficult.

That said I think we have all reached the point where your passive aggressive attitude needs to be confronted. I'm not saying this to insult you or hurt your feelings! Just I think this needs to be dealt with now.

All of us have to work to get along. It doesn't magically happen, we put in effort and we try. You make us try a lot harder for no good reason. We aren't all out here plotting to offend you!

Now you have been very difficult sense this rule was created, and you have been very rude to me personally about it. There wasn't any cause for it, but I ignored it. Just as I've ignored the other times you've done things like this. Maybe you have a difficult real life or something, I try to not judge. But this stuff needs to stop.

Liberty is my character. I'm the one that decides what she feels, and does. Not you.

On to the RPG part. That would work fine, if they went home she would have no reason to fight with them.

She just called him a punk. I don't know if I should be laughing or not.

But yeah, I read an old one some long time ago that was a simple meeting between Gambler and some other dude in a dojo, I think they were talking about the fate of some kid. Everything doesn't have to be a huge bust 'em up.

And this is Punk's alt? >.< I'm so late on everythinggggg. Dies

#24 Posted by CurbsideProphet (1904 posts) - - Show Bio

@Lady_Liberty: Ah. Now I don't feel wrong for laughing. I thought you were saying it like "Don't call me out, punk. I'll hurt you."

#25 Posted by _Sparrow_ (631 posts) - - Show Bio
@Lady_Liberty: This single conversation has nothing to do with me and I was never "passive aggressive" in this conversation. Your trying to dig up a murderer's grave so you can send him to prison.
 
All I said now is that I don't think that's the way she would act based on her attitude and past actions. I wasn't deciding anything. It was just my opinion. She seems like a reasonable person is all I was saying.
 
But that would be, at most, five posts. They would more than likely be tiring to write and boring to read.

@Sparrow_of_Aces

Dude, I think she was talking about the whole thing. There was the intro to this, and afterward there was the snide comment about 14 people (at least, it came off as snide). Also, in the peeve thread, then Surkit said "This isn't the passive slam thread, calm down." you went all "don't."


I'd read it. Diplomatic. Plus, errthing ain't got to be super lengthy or bash 'em up. It'll be fiiiiine.

That exact incident is what's represented as a "dead murderer" in the metaphor.

You know what, I ain't even get that metaphor. Mah bad, I'm out.

@TheDealer: Lol, I didn't get it either, wasn't sure how to reply 'cause I wasn't sure what he meant hehe.

@Sparrow_of_Aces: The point is your behavior has made things difficult for a lot of people for a long time now. I'm tell you that we've noticed, and I'm asking if you could please change it :-)

#31 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (84704 posts) - - Show Bio

@Lady_Liberty: @Sparrow_of_Aces: Maybe we could make it more interesting/longer, if you wanted to? I was just thinking that if a single individual were to suddenly begin developing small cities, or towns (for whatever reason), it would be an international story. Philanthropist, Sparrow, would make headlines of some sort with these acquisitions. Gambler sees this and believes a mutual partnership could be arranged. Having developed the original Utopia in Africa, attaching his name to the land development could attract outside investors. In exchange for his help, Sparrow would allow Gambler to build small biological experimental research facilities in secret on a few of the properties. This would mean protecting his investment against all threats, foreign and domestic. In short its a way for me to back you against Lady Liberty while hopefully creating an entertaining rpg.

@Gambler: Ah nice, I like that. He's got knowledge about her that would help with the prep too.

I have not acted that way during this conversation. If a beehive is calming down you don't go poke it with a stick.
