I've never been a very active role-player, but I don't want to allow my personal style of gameplay to hold others back.  I would like to encourage role-playing on this board if others are interested. 

My idea was to allow RP to take place alongside everything else in the Isles.   I don't really want to create a special forum for RP and treat it as separate from the normal affairs of the region.  This integrated method worked for The Meritocracy in its early days.  I imagine it can work for us as well.

If anybody has any ideas on RP, let me know.  I'm willing to create additional forums if they are actually needed.

I guess the easiest thing to do would be to create a "flashpoints" forum. General history and such can be posted in the Athenaeum, and the integrated regular stuff is a great idea, but there should be a forum for those rare earth-shaking events.

Also, are we going to coordinate roleplay with the rest of the Meritocracy? Alpha Omega wants to integrate with Meriterra, and we're going to start figuring that out soon. If the Isles are going to jump on-board, I can keep up some updates here.

I have a question on RP will we be part of Meritera or are we on some other moon mostly composed of islands (hence the name)?

I think we should be integrated with Meritera.  It would be nice to coordinate RP with The Meritocracy.   We could probably get some interesting RP between regions, especially if we develop a slightly different culture than that which exists in the Senate.

Where would you recommend putting a flashpoints forum?  Should it stand alone?  Or could it fit in under the news forum (MINOS)?

I think News and Flashpoint should be seperate, as "News" is dedicated to both foreign news and could be used as a primarily newspaper-style forum. It might do well in the Thomasian forum, since it's already an IC area.

Agreed. Would part of the map would be Meritocratic Isles?

There, I guess, unless someone wants it somewhere else?

We'll have to check with Winni, of course, and I'm a bit afraid to approach him with anything including the word "map".  Wink

I have created a Flashpoints forum.   Let me know what you think.   

And while you are at it, what do you think of the forum name "The Thomasian Forum."  I was never sure about that name.   I'm considering renaming it.

That could be good for future rp.

I'm not really botheed since Thomasia was a pillar for the foundation of the old Met. And I don't think too many will be insulted.

Maybe "Lord Tom's Shits and Giggles"?  Tongue You could change it to "Acropolis" or something if the "Forum" bit sounds boring.

Curzon Academy of Statecraft


Why not just call it Britannia Academy or something similar. Isn;t their an encyclopedia Britannica? Even Encyclopedia Britannia maybe?

Lord Curzon was the leader of Britannia, who founded and funded merit.jink.org. "Britannia", as you've noted, has too many real-world applications.
