So I tried streaming CK2 on Twitch for the first time. Gotta say, it could be a hobby.

╚═══════════════════════════════════════╝










My name is ClocktowerEchos, otherwise known as Clock or Echos. Before you ask, yes Echos is misspelled. This is totally because I did it fuck with people and totally not because I don't know good Ingrash. As a professional Asian, my Ingrash is well versed. Still learning English though, tricky language that fucker is. On a serious note, my English is a bit all over the place even though I am an ABC (American Born Chinese) since I've picked up a whole bunch of different bits from different places like books, TV, movies and just being around a diverse amount of people.

I live in the US northeast and thus in the EST timezone, although given how I life my life (read: not paying attention in class or staying up far later than I should), I can have some wonky ass online hours. That said, anything past 10:00 PM-ish and I tend to get a loopy and even derpier than normal, you have been warn. And yes, that's possible amazingly enough. As of right now in my life, I'm currently getting my ass handed to me while going through the wonderful American educational system and in the process of getting my ass shipped off to college that I got into by some miracle. (No its not Yale or some shit like that; I'm a professional Asian, not a stereotypical Asian.)

Personality wise, I've been best described as "a ball of contradictions", I'd call it some lowkey form of multiple personality but its probably more like mood swings in reality; my views and actions can vary depending on my mood. Don't worry, doesn't mean I'm going to be all sweet one second and then wanting to kill you and your family the next, its more of a slider of optimism vs cynicism (its more or less always on the cynical side as of late). I fully admit to my own flaws such as being a liar and being a hypocrite, I'm only human and accepting one's flaws makes one stronger; personal strength always triumphs over excessive safe spaces and cowering.




As of writing this (Dec. 20, 2016), I have been RPing on RPGuild for about 1.8 years (holy shit that's a larger number than I thought o_o). I have interest in a bunch of different areas but generally inhibited by my flirty interest in RPs which depends on mood and whatever captivates me at the moment. I take pride in my creativity but it seems to also have the unfortunate consequence of making me every easily influenced by neat things I see, generally on YouTube.

I have a personal fixation on Nation RPs (and even made a basic introduction guide here), having done everything from fantasy and sci-fi to World Wars-era nations and primitive Neolithic tribes. My love of NRPs stems from a love a strategy games I've played since my childhood. That said, I do RP more traditional character-drive RPs on a equal if not greater level due to how much more common they are compared to NRPs. Characters I make tend to be eccentric in one ways or another, just because I have a distaste for the generic average-antisocial-but-helps-friends-edgelord-blood-darkness-magic-katana-teenager-wanting-sexy-romance. That said, I do enjoy smut RPs whenever they pop up and catch my fancy, my favorite kind is perversion of canon types and I've been told I write good smut but that's for a 1x1 interest check to be made in the future. I enjoy deeper writing and little subtleties, if my viewing of dissection and analysis videos I watch on Youtube are anything to go off of.

In terms of GMing, whenever I get off my ass and do it, I am a hardass GM. I am not going to sugar coat it, I can get what other people consider nasty or rude or oppressive. This is because fundamentally my goals as a GM are different than that of a player and even myself when I'm just a player; if "creative freedom" is clearly leading down a path that's causing issues, than I have no qualms about heavy handing a norm in. If someone's character is clearly just shoehorned into the RP since the player just wants the character and not wanting to really form anything to the RP, than I will shoot it down mercilessly.

That said, I am more than willing to help people create characters/nations should they need help, same goes with RPing assuming that it catches my interest.

@Rultaos That's why most of the vehicles and stuff will likely just be "reskins" of the same unit as I call it. So people don't need to worry about if this tank's 120mm cannon can damage that vehicle's 50mm armor with reactive plates at a 60 degree angle or what have you. Its also why I'm not having it be PvP but more PvE so that people can focus on writing for character's and personal tactics over what counters what and why this maneuver would best that action.

@neogreggory I'm going to use what Yenn (original creator of the idea) had written down mostly:





Its going to be very similar except that there are plenty of videos online on how to train MockZ and even sort of MockZ "boot camps". Think like how there are videos on how to train your dog and doggy camps and such. Plenty of people in universe even have MockZ who they just use as like glorified ant farms and watch as they build cities and such in their backyard or living room. I will also say that they can repopulate themselves but have gestation times of at least half a year with only special types of MockZ that are fertile and invetiably cost much more.

tl;dr - humans only, they can learn other skills besides war and can grow their own personalities beyond what you first make for them, customization is from you being able to alter how they physically look and their clothing, they can form relationships and they can die from battle.

That last bit is actually going to be a corner stone of my own Division. Originally they were two divisions owned by two brothers but after a series of devastating and crushing losses, they have been combined into a single Division with limited resources and quality units.
@Ben1730 The amount of work that would have to be put in to make a card like that for every division would be laborious and I'm certain most people don't have the time to fill it out like that. Instead, it'll all be text based and organized with hiders.

@All Unit Card templates are now up along with examples for vehicles and infantry. Remember, run on rule of cool with realistic reason behind it. As for tech level, I guess WW2 and the modern era will be our bench marks. I'm not using stats so don't make things more complicated than it has to be so long as it can fit within the Troop Type.






Added Doctrines! Next up is the NS proper and a unified layout for units or "unit cards" template.

@neogreggory Honestly, that's one of the reasons I made this RP. So people can just have fun making awesome army divisions they'd normally make for NSs without the additional stuff that would normally come with an NS in an NRP. My goal is that the process of making divisions is easy enough to the point where people can just quickly draw one up with limited time.
Updated with Troop Type now so anyone interested will be able to begin to figure out what kind of division they'd like to run.
Up next will be Doctrines, Division modifiers that allow special units or change the number of slots to help personalize a division to whatever theme you wan!

SETTING

Its 20XX, world peace has finally been achieved. After decades long arms races, the perfect armor was created rendering all ballistic and energy weapons ineffective but was yet cheap and lightweight enough to be used en masse on both tanks and soldiers. Short of nuclear strikes and mutually assured destruction, armies became invincible against one another. Realizing this conundrum, the Treaty of Babylon was signed that marked an era a world peace for the first time.

However, there were still those who wished to engage in martial pursuits even between international militaries. As such companies created the "MockZ": miniature, intelligent and ageless humans fully aware of their existence and accepting of it. Great debates and controversy swirled around them. But with enough money being thrown at the issue and a sizable amount of public support, the issue soon faded. Now cloned in numbers, they have become the world's fastest growing commodity with companies forming around their creation and additions like buildings, vehicles and other implements.

Any military action has been replaced with grand MockZ tournaments with entire tiny armies lead by the greatest military minds of each nation with true, old fashioned war no longer a possibility. Of course, civilian tournaments are held as well leading to a strange system where tournament winners are often approached by governments to lead MockZ troops in a true strategic scale.

While "governmental MockZ" often have specialized equipment and detailed, unique tanks between nations, the civilian MockZ market will only sell one base model of something and then allow the buyer to effectively "reskin" the blank model. For example, in a civilian tournament, while one side will have a Soviet T-34 and the other will have a Russian T-90, the two will act similar for game purposes.


Important points:
  • Focus on player creativity, make your Division's theme on whatever you want. Modern US marines? WW2 Panzergrenadiers? Samurai shocktroopers? Neo Medieval Riflemen-at-Arms? Go wild!
  • Cooprative Plot, instead of trying to balance out a clusterfuck PvP plot, all players will participate as "divisions" within a "field army" (team) as they try and reach the big leagues!
  • Four Division Layouts, Dozens of Troop Types and a number of Doctrine to help make your division really feel like your own and fit your theme!
  • But wait, this setting doesn't make sense! Look at you Timmy, aren't you smart. Guess what, the focus isn't on the realism of the setting but having a hodpodge combination of different thematic divisions fight one another!


If you have any questions do ask!
For those of you interested, here are the DIVISIONS you can play in this RP. Troop Type, Doctrines and Sheets will be to follow if enough interested is generated.






@Irredeemable Honestly, skip me for now. I've run into a wall when trying to write for this RP, apologies.
Yeah, we're going to be flying solo in our own little stories for awhile, until someone's characters have the gumption to leave home so we can have interactions.


This was one of the reasons I had an idea of being a bunch of merchant nomads who'd go cross country, so they'd have something to do and would be easy to interact with for other people.

As for my NS, I've hit a road block in terms of actually writing people. I'll probably just put up what I have to expedite things and as to not dawdle anymore.

@Andrew Blade Midwest was definitely something I was thinking of.

@Banzai Tracers I feel like Utah would be a decent place.
