1983: Doomsday

Hey, I read on Yanks talk page that you wanted to sign up for 1983: Doomsday. Basically, you don't need to sign up. You just write whatever you want, as long as its possible. Arstarpool 02:53, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, to put maps is pretty difficult, but it's quick to do. Go to another nation page, and click source code on your edit bar. You will see that there is a thing that says something like this:

"Name=

"Map=(the name of the file goes here)"

Coa=

Leader=

...things like that. Your going to copy and paste that whole thing onto your thing, and then fill it in. If you find it difficult, I could do it for you.

Here are some of the last places nations can be made:

Southern U.S. Coast (keep it small)

New England (make like a very small nation there.)

Spain

East Europe

The Balkans

Kalingrad (also called East Prussia)

Africa

Chinese coast

Texas Coast

The Middle East

Thats about it... Arstarpool 17:44, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Britain (keep it small)

Arstarpool 17:44, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

It can be started anytime after 1983. I think, though, that a newer nation would be cooler, but it's your choice. And yea, we have room in South East Germany.Arstarpool 18:24, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Are you going to go ahead with a new nation? Arstarpool 01:24, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

I decided not to, I think I'm just gonna go with the Map Games for now, if you want you can take over the country I've already created, its called the Second Polish Republic Ownerzmcown 1:53, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Could I work on the Macedonia page with you? BoredMatt 01:53, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I need a map for it, not a map of OTL Macedonia, but of a region called Greater Macedonia. Ownerzmcown, 2:00, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

It's looking pretty good, although I haven't been able to find any information on the "King". Arstarpool 03:40, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

I haven;t made a page for the king, but he's a real person, look up Alexander, Crowned Prince of Yugoslavia. Ownerzmcown 03:42, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

Neither. It can be written in by you that it's a member, an observer, has sent an application, or is banned. Arstarpool 02:51, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations! You made a much more interesting article than I could have ever made. I had an unoffical agreement with Vladivostok that I created the Serbia and Macedonia articles, while he wrote the Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia articles. I thank you for taking Macedonia off my plate.

what did you think of the TL other wise, though? Tbguy1992 02:50, August 21, 2010 (UTC)

Negotiations

Owner, I'm terribly sorry for any offense I caused you at the negotiations;but they were just that-negotiations. I'm going to be honest-I was a complete wanker to you all because I took the fact you didn't ask me about Macedonia's relationship with Greece far too grieviously. Now you probably won't believe me, but I'm legitimately trying to make this up to you and even become friends. Do you have to believe me? No. Will you? Probably not, for which I don't blame you. All I'm trying to do is make this right and culminate a friendship; a nuked-city and a naming-discrepency are nothing to sweat about, and I'm sure you have more. Also, since Macedonia is a monarchy and the young adults (as in 17-30, not what American-fiction deems "young adult") are becoming more-and-more infatuated with neo-conservaticy, the old Kingdom of Greece and Greece's long history as the heir to the Athenian and Byzantine/East Roman Empires as well as the Kingdom of Greece, the people would probably become more and more pro-Macedonian each day. Who knows, perhaps Macedonia can tutor Greece on how to become a proper, democratic/constitutional monarchy. Mr.Xeight 21:36, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Xeight, I have to thank you for your professionality and for being mature in this matter, although the idea of negotiation has by now broken down, but perhaps the idea of Macedonia and Greece having a freindship in the post-DD world have appeared to be impossible, Macedonia has made contact with a country, Turkey, that has horrible relations with Greece, and now the two countries are great partners and I'm afraid that Macedonia and Greece must stay enemies. Ownerzmcown 23:41, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

I apologize, friend, but if you don't mind, I'd like to at least keep trying until we work something out.

The bad relations all stem from me being a complete prick to you over a simple misunderstanding, am I correct? Well if you'd accept my apology, we can't not change the past-I did it with Greece years ago (originally Greece was part of a state that unified with Turkey after I decided to go with the idealistic "Doomsday changes everything, let's set aside our differences and survive), and really nothing is written in stone so to speak. Though I'm a true "Son of Hellas" if you will, post-Doomsday the name-dispute in my opinion doesn't really matter anymore, and Greece isn't a victim in this-merely one faction in an old dispute. Since Greece's control over the North is widely shattered, I'm willing to completely forsake any claims to it, minus the Thracian Reclamation Territory. If I may propose something, perhaps even the Balkan-states work together to repopulate the territory? Now it might be crazy, and thus if we all work together then the territory would be fairly new. If Greece goes it alone, it's going to take decades for a farily-stable population to result. If say Rhodope, Greece, and Macedonia all work together (I'd even be willing to include Turkey), then it'll be easier to stablize. Also, perhaps we need to see beyond what divides and see what unifies us: Orthodox Christianity. Constantinople is a holy city for Orthodox-Christians everywhere, no matter of what Patriarchate. If the powers got together and work together to reclaim the territory, then well, it would take significantly less time. What are thoughts? Would you be willing to rewrite the past and save Constantinople from being forgotten in time with me? Mr.Xeight 23:54, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Look, if you can get the following, then I'll give consideration to the concept:

  • The go ahead from Lordganon (Rhodope) and Caeruleus (Turkey) for the idea
  • Create a list of ideas for the name of such a union thats good by me
  • Finally, agree that if we decide to create such a union that the center will be a rebuilt Constantinople (The old name makes more historical sense to me) although a privisional center will probably have to be selected

Graduating Macedonia

Can I help you get Macedonia graduated? I've seen the arguments and I just want to help. If it means scaling down a bit I will be willing to do it but I want it to be graduated. Arstarpool 22:37, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Yes! Please and thank you! Ownerzmcown 02:43, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Yugoslavia

Well, I think that any alliance between Serbia & Montenegro with Macedonia would automatically exclude Croatia, Bosnia or Slovenia. That being said, trade wouldn't of course be off the table. Generally, I think the relationship would be peaceful and productive, although since Slovenia and Croatia are planning on joining the ADC, while Greece is in a dispute with Macedonia, that would perhaps lead to relations being cordial, friendly perhaps, but definately not an alliance.--Vladivostok 21:30, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

A pact between Serbia & Montenegro sounds good to me, but what would we call it and would there be other members? Ownerzmcown 21:56, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

Well, it doesn't necessarily have to have a name, just a firm international relationship. But, on the other hand, I realize that relations between Macedonia and Serbia are not my strong suit. That would have to be looked into, to see if there is lasting anymosity in the region.--Vladivostok 22:06, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

The Wikipedia page on the subject says that they have good relations, although because Kosovo would likely never become a problem in this timeline, then they would remain good friends. Ownerzmcown 02:53, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, and they could have a strong relationship then. But I saw on Oer's talk page that your initial idea was to have them create an organization, or group. People have been always trying to lump these nations together, but it really isn't doable, unless it is forced. Perhaps a yearly summit, or council in which they discuss regional politics, I could see that.--Vladivostok 06:40, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Almost There

Just a little more until Macedonia is finally canon! All Mitro wants is for you to change the map.

So what's next? Europe is pretty filled up...there's still room for city-states and such in North America, though. The New York Rangers page mentions at least a dozen city-states that haven't been written about yet, and Oaklahoma looks promising with a couple city-states mentioned too. South-east California has room with lush farmlands. Central Florida is pretty empty too. Missisisippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana are surprisingly empty as well. Arstarpool 04:03, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Macedonia and Turkey

These two pages are always getting objetced. With your permission I would like to temporarily take the reins of Macedonia and get it graduated. I may have to give up a (small) part of the Greek lands and a large chunk of Serbia if you want it to get graduated because these are the two places everyone keeps on getting into arguments about. Get back to me soon. Arstarpool 19:20, September 5, 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry Arstar, but as much as I would like to have my article graduated, I find it necessary to keep being the caretaker of the Macedonia article. Ownerzmcown 21:45, September 5, 2010 (UTC)

I agree, honestly, I just said the thing about the frigate to force the subject, maybe we are going a bit going to war all of a sudden, what do you think? Ownerzmcown 03:02, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure. If I were a general of the age, I would be almost sure that a war between France and Florence was soon to start. It is a bit of a forced start, yes, but it is not sudden. Although this will be an extremely good war. Fedelede 03:06, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

Are you pulling Muscovy into this? Fedelede 03:07, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

Well, it is Poland-Lithuanias main ally, I'm just advising, also, I agree, but maybe we should just leave this war to France and Florence. Ownerzmcown 03:08, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

It's true. But I only started offering alliances to the West and Poland-Lithuania because you had the Pope ready to excommulgate me if I invaded you, Venice in my heels, and were offering an alliance to England: It would have only been a fair match if I had parted from the Pope and had founded my own branch of Christianism, so that I could ally with the Mamluks and Ottomans. Even if Florence is mighty, compare it to the French Behemoth! Fedelede 03:12, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

This is also true, so what do you think we should do? Ownerzmcown 03:13, October 20, 2010 (UTC)


The war with Florence is over, Ownerzmcown. At least as far as the Papacy is concerned. Florence has been so badly mauled by England, Ireland, and the Papal States that it has been begging for its life.

The Florentines have offered to pay you thousands of florins per year and give you Corsica if you make a ceasefire with them. Personally, I (and the Map Game pope) recommend this. As noted on the negotiation page, they will pay you so much wealth per year it will drive them to bankruptcy. You will also get Corsica, a traditional French territory OTL. Once you have bled the Florentines dry in a few years, you can start the war again sometime (Since it's a ceasefire, not necessarily a white peace) and achieve more profitable and strategic results.--Emperor of Trebizond 21:01, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

Macedonia

Arstar has moved that since you've not worked on it in a while, Macedonia should be opened for adoption by others.

Though you should know - though, I'd be willing to add the details I mentioned to the thing to make it up to specs, if you'd like. Would shut all that up, lol.

Lordganon 07:11, November 19, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, Owner, what's your game plan for Macedonia? If its just going to sit there there's a lot of willing people, like LG who would be willing to get it graduated or else its gonna end up being a proposal forever :P Arstar 16:18, November 19, 2010 (UTC)

Serbia

Nice to finally see Macedonia done, lol.

At any rate - Serbia! How about we turn that one into a joint project? I've got some things in mind for it in relation to Transylvania and the Bulgaria articles, and I'm sure you've got a few things in mind in relation to Macedonia.

And, of course, having to bring it into line with Macedonia, lol.

Lordganon 20:59, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Sounds fine with me! Ownerzmcown 21:45, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

I'm curious - what do you think the eventual result would be for Serbia in the future? They are surrounded by hostile and semi-hostile nations, after all - and many would love a crack at it.

I've also begun a history, etc. for Serbia. Thoughts on a date for when the Serbs first deal with Macedonia? (i.e. the dates for the first skirmish after landing, the encounter with the general in Macedonia, and the date that the northward advance halts) Or can I just make them up to fit the story and the Macedonia history?

Lordganon 08:41, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Well considering Macedonia has already bean canonized, I'd say that we work with the Macedonia article. Also, Serbia's only real ally is Greece, Greece would try, and likely fail, to get help from the ADC if war broke out. The most likely thing to happen would be one of the other smaller former Yugoslav nations will begin a war with Serbia, Greece will try to help, Macedonia would absolutely join in that case, or vice versa. Then when Macedonia gets involved, Turkey gets involved and the most likely result would be Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, and Turkey vs. Greece and Serbia. The end result will most likely be a victory for the "Coalition" and most likely Serbia and Greece would end up giving sizable amounts of land. Ownerzmcown 22:25, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Croatia and Slovenia are applicants of the ADC. I highly doubt that they would get involved. Bosnia, on the other hand, is already an ally of Turkey, so no problems there. Where does it actually state that Serbia and Greece are close? I always assumed that Serbia and the ADC wouldn't have strong relations.--Vladivostok 23:11, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Although I'm not entirely sure who first told me, it might have been Xeight, which he might have just said to be "afraid" of Greece. I guess it would then just be Bosnia, Macedonia, and Turkey vs. Serbia, which would likely mean Bosnia regaining the entire nation, Macedonia getting more of southern Serbia, and Turkey might end up with political influence in Serbia or possibly some Serbian coast. Ownerzmcown 23:40, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Speaking for Greece, I can honestly say that they don't like the Serbians much either. Actions like they will have done in Bosnia/Croatia are a little hard to forget. No love is lost between the two, nor would they ally.

I'll cook up dates, then - Macedonia doesn't actually have any for parts of its early history. It'll work out.

I was more so thinking that we could have all of the neighboring nations form some sort of loose alliance if/when the nationalists in Serbia (warmongers, may I add) come back to power. Divy up the whole thing, lol. Most would probably go to Macedonia, if that helps - call it the kingdom of Macedonia and Serbia after that, lol. Croatia/Bosnia would get back their territory, and I can honestly say that some areas inhabited by other minorities would get "eaten" by other eastern and northern "neighbors" of Serbia. Montenegro could go either independent or in the kingdom, mind. Turkey or Greece could get involved, but I kinda doubt that any nation would invoke an alliance for a dogpile like that, lol.

Lordganon 00:01, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

So we're actually going for this? Fine by me. Either Macedonia would take all of Serbia, or maybe just large parts of it. I can't really think of any other nations besides former Yugoslavia getting involved or dividing up Serbia. Ownerzmcown 00:43, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

I wouldn't say actually going for it. More like a half-idea for some point down the road.

As for the other half of that, Transylvania has claims in Serbia.. and there are areas with majority Hungarian and Bulgarian populations.... ;)

Lordganon 00:46, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, what I imagine is that Macedonia would gain parts of Macedonia, give independence to Montenegro, possibly leave a small part of Serbia independent, although under a pro-Macedonian regime, and giving the Hungarians and possibly the Bulgarians their own nations. If this course of action is taken, then I believe that the creation of a "Yugo-Sphere" of some kind would be possible, some kind of Macedonia dominated alliance or organization that would likely be military and economic. Also, what do you think would be the size of the three branches of the Serbian armed forces, it under conscription, so I'd imagine large. Ownerzmcown 00:54, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Something for the future, really. Though I meant that Partium/Rhodope would join in if Transylvania did ;)

As for the size of each branch, I would base that somewhat off of the Macedonian numbers. In my mind, they'd be about equal, except the navy. That'd be the size of the Macedonia Adriatic Fleet, plus another thousand or so at most for Danube river boats.

Lordganon 02:14, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

You'd have to give a good reason for either to intervene in what would likely just be a former Yugoslavia conflict. As for the river boats, they won't help much because the Danube River doesn't extend into Macedonia. Ownerzmcown 03:21, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

As I said, both of those would actively go along with a Transylvanian attack.

The river boats would be to keep the river secure, not anything to do with Macedonia.

Lordganon 04:09, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Where would the Serbian originally get their weapons, and would the Serbian industry be able to produce its own weapons. Ownerzmcown 22:59, December 3, 2010 (UTC)

Serbia definitely has the industry needed to make its own weapons. Most of those industries are not in Belgrade, but in central Serbia. By the looks of things, in fact, only 2 or so of the major companies that would be involved with that production (ammo included) are headquartered there - the rest are in the center.

As for where they got the weapons originally, that's pretty simple: a definite majority of Yugoslav military bases (planes, etc.) are in Serbian areas, a majority of the troops were either Serbian or Montenegrin, and a large majority of the officers were Serbs.

Yugoslavia was basically dominated by Serbs, realistically. As things stood, while under Tito things were fairly multi-ethnic, by 1983 the Serbs and their allies had control.

Lordganon 03:41, December 4, 2010 (UTC)

Err.. what I meant was that they would have kept control of the bases and factories - no need to search for old weapons or resume manufacturing. The bases would have stayed under their control, leaving whatever was not used in the wars under their control. The factories, while suffering from a slight shortage of materials, etc. would have held the same manufacturing abilities, outside of Belgrade, that it had started the wars with. This includes all the arms factories, pretty much. Like I said, central Serbia - which is the Nis/Krusevac regions of Serbia, plus a bit further north.

Lordganon 22:06, December 4, 2010 (UTC)

So when will Serbia's next general election be? Because a little after that I believe would be the best time for Macedonia and Serbia to go to war. Ownerzmcown 16:23, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

I set up the Serbian election cycle to mesh well with the Macedonian Civil War. It's every 5 years, starting in 1989. So: 1989 > 1994 > 1999 > 2004 > 2009 > 2014 Meaning the next one would be in 2014, barring some sort of major voting failure in the Assembly, which wouldn't happen legally at this point - the governing Socialists are propped up by the various minority parties, who have issues with the nationalists and would not vote with them as a result.

Dont forget though, you'd need a few allies besides Turkey to pull off a major victory. All you need to do is look at the population numbers to see that, lol.

Lordganon 16:44, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

So clearly the legal and electoral way appears to be out of the idea, so the most likely thing would be a Nationalist revolution, or something along the lines.

And the sides at this point I'm thinking would be Macedonia, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Turkey, Transylvania, Rhodope, and Turkey, vs. Serbia. This "coalition" I believe would clearly outnumber the Serbian army. Ownerzmcown 19:59, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

I'd just like to say once more that Croatia wouldn't enter a war against Serbia, and Slovenia would definitely not want to enter another war. Croatia led a defensive war in OTL and TTL and would only be in this coalition if it were directly attacked. Bosnia is fair game though, and is already in an alliance with Turkey and would then probably have good relations with Macedonia.--Vladivostok 21:17, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

Agreed, Vlad.

True that those all combined would outnumber them.

Really, a war is somewhere off in the future. All things considered, a nationalist revolution would be unlikely - something that brings down the government and gets a new election, however, would not be impossible. I myself would prefer to wait a while. We'll revisit it sometime in the spring, I think.

Lordganon 02:13, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Fair enough.

Ownerzmcown 20:23, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

I think that we may be just about done lol

Anything you can think of that needs adding still?

Lordganon 05:25, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

Although I'm still working on the military part, I think all of the other important parts have been taken care of.

Ownerzmcown 20:17, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

I'll ask for objections then.

Lordganon 21:19, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

Do we ever increase the population number on these articles, its not like the size of the country's population stays the same forever? Ownerzmcown 01:15, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

You are correct, we do change the populations periodically. But, it is something that should be done every couple years real-time, at most, like real census-taking.

Lordganon 02:18, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

I'd think that in this world, there would be a census like every 2 years or so.

Ownerzmcown 19:42, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

It really would depend on the country, and how fast it grows.

At any rate, Serbia has now been graduated! =)

Lordganon 07:28, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

Albania

Thought I'd let you know that we can ignore that Albania article completely - it was made obsolete.

More room for us to make articles, lol.

Lordganon 07:55, November 27, 2010 (UTC)

Hey LG, I was thinking that now Albania is obsolete, do you think I could make a page for the Republic of Albania that the Macedonia page talks about? Ownerzmcown 22:09, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

Power to you. I've been working on a couple ideas for the south of Albania myself, lol. Just remember to keep it in the north/center of the country. Lordganon 22:14, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

Common Defense Organization

Owner, if you remember, we discussed creating a common defense organization between Turkey, Macedonia, and other allied countries. I finally came around to remembering that conversation recently, but do you still want to do it? We can co-write the article. And, if you're still interested, what do you think it should be called and who would you want included? Caeruleus 01:09, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I absolutely believe this would be a great project for us to create, it would likely consist of Macedonia, Turkey, and Macedonia and Turkey's other regional allies. I can think of only the Eastern Mediterranean Security Organization at the moment. Ownerzmcown 01:48, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

Cool. I was thinking of including Bosnia, New Erzurum, and Greater Patnos. I talked to Fxgentleman previously and he agreed that Lebanon, and possible some Syrian survivor states, would probably join. As for the name, I only came up with Meditterranean Defense League/Organization (MDL or MDO), though the name really doesn't matter to me. You can pick the name if you want. Caeruleus 01:52, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

What about Israel? Ownerzmcown 02:00, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

According to Fxgentleman, they probably wouldn't join because Israel, Jordan, and the GSU would form their own defense organization focused on opposing Iran. However, cooperation between the two organizations is possible since they share some common goals. Caeruleus 02:20, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

I originally thought Croatia and Slovenia, but their joining the ADC and that would definetely interfere, so I think we should first come up with a definite list of possible members. Also some kind of reason, like the ADC and Sicilian aggresion. Ownerzmcown 02:30, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

They haven't officially joined the ADC yet, so this organization could offer a tantalizing second option for them.
But as a preliminary list, here are the nations I could see joining:
  • Turkey
  • Macedonia
  • Bosnia
  • New Erzurum
  • Greater Patnos
  • Azerbaijan
  • Lebanon
  • Croatia (maybe)
  • Slovenia (maybe)
Also, I could see some states around the Black Sea, such as Crimea or the Don Republic, joining as a way to oppose Siberian expansion. Caeruleus 02:36, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

I think the Mediterranean Defense League would be the best name, but possible we would might need to change the name if those members join. I think it should be founded in order to defend from other states such as Siberia, Serbia, and possibly Iran. If we made this the idea, then the possibility of more states joining increases. Ownerzmcown 03:00, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

Opposing Siberia, and too a more limited extent Greece and Serbia, would definitely be the main goals of the organization. However, opposing Iran would be a difficult position since Turkey and Iran have an informal agreement due to their aligning interests and the GSU and Israel don't really care much about Siberia, Greece, or Serbia. But opposing Siberian expansion should be enough to get several former Soviet survivor states to join.
And here's the link to the page: Mediterranean Defense League
Caeruleus 04:28, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

I created the page and added a few basic things. Check the MDL talk page for specifics. We can carry this conversation there now. Caeruleus 04:53, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

I've had another idea for post-Warsaw Pact states for a while now so I hope you don't think I'm stealing your idea, but it'll include many to most of the former Warsaw Pact/Soviet states. I wouldn't have a problem with them being on good terms/allied with the MDL however. Arstar 05:22, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

<cuts in for a half second> Azerbaijan will not be joining, and Vlad has said that he wants his Slovenia/Croatia articles to join the ADC. And as a reminder, you will need his permission to deal with Bosnia in such a regard as well. Lordganon 07:26, December 13, 2010 (UTC)
Why wouldn't Azerbaijan join? And Vlad ok'd Bosnia joining weeks ago. Caeruleus 12:36, December 13, 2010 (UTC)
Because as its caretaker, that is my wish. Verbatim. Lordganon 12:48, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Owner, I was rereading through our articles and realized that we haven't really done much with this one yet. Do you want to add something to it or have the MDL actually do something? We don't necessarily have to but its quiet start is less I imagined it to be. Caeruleus 05:40, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

Sicily War

Hmm.. Well, maybe, lol.

What's the view held by Macedonia on Sicily? Note that no direct intervention either way would occur, but there's a few things I could have happening otherwise depending on there views.

Lordganon 03:09, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

Macedonia views Sicily as an enemy to the world and kind of imperialistic militiants, it says something like that on the Macedonia page. Ownerzmcown 03:12, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

Heh. What I thought I remembered, more or less.

How would them taking up an "armed neutrality" stance following the invasion of the Ionians sound? It would limit Sicilian movements even further, helping the ADC/IPA.

Lordganon 03:29, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

Sounds very agreeable. Ownerzmcown 03:30, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

Nuclear Devastation

The Nuclear Devastation (Map Game) is starting now PitaKang 05:14, January 16, 2011 (UTC)


Doomsday

Well, there is several areas something could be done, even if a lot of it would be city-states. What part of the world would you like to work in? lol Lordganon 07:51, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

North America, Asia, or Africa. Ownerzmcown 21:40, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

Also, you sure don't want my help with the military section for Greece? Ownerzmcown 21:47, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I'm sure. Should start on it sometime in the next few days.

NA, Africa, and Asia, eh? Hmmm..... Note that most of these would be small countries for you to do as you wish in, following their collapse.

  • Africa:
    • The two Congos, outside of the capital city-state and Katanga, are empty.
    • Liberia, outside of the Port of Monrovia, has only got state names in place (Democratic Republic of Lofa and Republic of Nimba both have articles, though are undeveloped stubs with virtually no content - there is also the Democratic Republic of Liberia and the Revolutionary Republic of Liberia that were planned at some point, having existed between 1985 and 1991 or so).
    • Kenya, which canon says is somewhat stable.
    • The mainland portion of Tanzania, which canon says went to hell.
    • Uganda, which collapsed, outside of Buganda.
    • Malawi
    • Zimbabwe, which collapsed.
    • Zambia
    • Fate of Lesotho and Swaziland, outside of their survival, has never really been determined.
    • Rwanda
    • Burundi
    • Angola, collapsed, has several half-started articles, in addition to space for more.
    • Central African Republic
    • Gabon
    • São Tomé and Príncipe
    • Algeria has several Greek-aligned states, like Kabylie - Chaoui, and Souk Ahras - and other states, Tamanrasset, Tamahaq, and M'zab - info about these would start on the Algeria article.
    • A breakaway version of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, the Independent Republic Sahrawi Arab, which controls around half of Western Sahara as well as nearby parts of Algeria and Mauritania.
    • There's room for small things left in South Africa.
    • Several west African nations - Benin, Burkina Faso, Gambia, Guinea, and Niger, for starters - could be created, so long as canon follows what is written in the West African Union, and its members, articles.
    • There is areas of southern Libya that may hold a city-state or two... little, but maybe.
    • Note that probably half of the current articles in Africa are stubs and could use expansion.
  • Asia:
    • There is a large amount of work in India that can be done. Almost none of the breakaway states have their own articles.
    • China has some room left.
    • Afghanistan, so long as the state is small, has some room for work.
    • Central Asia, and other nearby areas, has some room for small nations.

As for North America..... Any specific region? There's a ton of room for city-states in some areas, lol.

Lordganon 23:09, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

In the US, I was thinking South or Southwest.

I think I don't want in on Asia or Africa much now that I think about it. Ownerzmcown 23:12, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, that's a touch daunting, lol.

South/Southwest...... Well, for starters, Prescott is open for adoption. Kinda a lawless frontier thing in Arizona. Note that all of these are city-states - there is no room for more than that in NA, in that region anyways.

Past that, from various articles.....

  • Georgetown, as seen in other articles, in South Carolina.
  • Silver City, a haven for outlaws and the like, in New Mexico.
  • Pine Bluff and Hope in Arkansas.
  • Apalachicola, in Florida.
  • Greenville or Kannapolis in North Carolina (there's also a ton of tiny communities, if you look at the North Carolina article)
  • Darien or Toccoa in Georgia.

And some ideas from my own lists....

  • Something in the area of Stone County, Arkansas.
  • St. Joseph or Hannibal, Missouri.
  • Guymon or Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
  • Vicksburg, Mississippi.

Texas and Louisiana are full, unless you can sucker Brian into letting you edit one of his Texas ones, lol.

Hope this helps.

Lordganon 23:43, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

I notice the southern coast doesn't appear to have been hit. Ownerzmcown 00:06, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

A lot of it wasn't directly hit, but for the most part it's been established that a fair amount was effected by refugees and radiation. Truth be told, most of the intact coastline on the Gulf is already part of organized states. Apalachicola is pretty well the only one the definitely exists on the coast there.

Off hand, I can only think of one more that would survive: Gulf Shores, Alabama. Texas and Lousiana are done, Missisipi and Alabama, as things stand, hand theirs largely destroyed, and Florida is pretty well either destroyed or in North Florida (out of Gainesville)

Lordganon 07:16, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

On second though I think I'll just stick with what I've got right now. Ownerzmcown 21:40, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Why does everyone say that when I give them a list like that? lol Meh. Lordganon 00:07, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

Qu'il Tous

Heh. I'd be willing to do that, though I can definitely say that you'd be the one primarily responsible for it. I do like your basic idea, mind.

We do work quite well together, after all, lol.

Lordganon 05:42, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much! Ownerzmcown 14:05, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

All righty. Finished the war itself, in NA. Lemme know what you think.

So, how is all of this going to work, with boundaries in NA? I've got the Americans having captured more or less all of it, with minimal French support.

Lordganon 12:46, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

I would say the Americans would probably keep all of it, with France being more concerned probably with African and Asian colonies than in North America. Ownerzmcown 21:59, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Glad to hear it. Lordganon 00:07, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

I also need a good map for Africa and North America. Ownerzmcown 01:46, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

North America I can do, readily enough. Africa, you'll need to tell me what areas would be french, in your mind.

Are you meaning a war map, mind? And what are the overall intentions towards Spanish America?

Lordganon 04:02, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

Just after the war, the article says, all of Britain's African colonies were given to France, so basically just work with that. But I'm not sure on South America, either Iberia would inherit them, or France would annex them after the Peninsula campaign. Ownerzmcown 21:31, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

Heh. Won't get the French much, then, unless the Brits manage to seize the Cape from the Dutch and the French get that. Until the mid-1800s no one really held much of Africa.

Considering all things Owner, otl the rebellions were already starting before the British naval losses atl happened. By the time the French secure control of the oceans to any great degree atl, things will have already begun to boil over in Spanish America. The rebellions would probably end up worse as well, because of perceived French domination and puppetry in Iberia. Past 1812, any fighting would largely be in vain, though I could see both still trying to keep much of it in Spanish hands.

Brazil would likely become independent as well, likely within days of them hearing of the surrender/capture of the Portuguese King.

Lordganon 03:53, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

I actually came up withe idea of Brazil and the rest of South America rebellion, receiving help from Mexico, and trying unsuccessfully to be defeated by France, Iberia, and the United States. Another idea I came up with would be like having a Britain and France on North and South America, in North America, it would be the US with France, and Mexico with Britain. And in South America it would be Argentina with France and Brazil with Britain. Ownerzmcown 04:07, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

Well, I honestly doubt the US would be able to help much. Nor that they would want to. Having different "client" type states is a good idea, mind - though I dont think the USA would really be one, more likely some sort of ally. But I really doubt that the French and Spanish could reconquer the area, especially when holding down all of Europe like that. Lordganon 05:31, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

A thought: I'd like for the HBC to keep their territories, for the most part. That would be a British-supported nation, easily enough. Some sort of concession as in otl with the otl borders too, but with the BC coast going to the USA. Thoughts? Lordganon 09:40, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I don't know what HBC and BC mean exactly. Ownerzmcown 11:45, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

HBC = Hudson's Bay Company

BC = British Columbia

Lordganon 11:55, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good, we can let the Americans get Lower and Upper Canada, and the Hudson Bay Company can keep the rest of its land. Also another idea I had was that Spain's colonies rebel, helped by Mexico and Brazil, already independent, and fight France and Iberian troops. Ownerzmcown 21:27, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

Works for me.

We can have Mexico gaining independence in 1812, with the rebellion in 1810 that started their war of independence succeeding because of Spain being more liberalized due to the situation with Napoleon there. The landowners support the rebellion, and it succeeds. Brazil becomes independent when Portugal surrenders. Mexican monarchy, Brazilian republic.

Lordganon 23:16, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good I'll get started on it tonight. Ownerzmcown 00:37, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, come to think of it, unless you want the Portuguese royal family held hostage by Napoleon, it is likely that both would end up with monarchies. A Bourbon one of some sort in Mexico in the end, mind. Lordganon 02:22, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

Was about to do a map of North America, but remembered something - Florida we can assume went the US - that was basically a given, really - and the islands would stay with Iberia - but what about the boundaries of Mexico? Will they lose territory to the USA like otl? Way I figure it, that war was more or less unavoidable, as was its result. Lordganon 11:21, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

Florida would defintely be given to America at the end of the war, and Mexico would just have the territory it would have pre-Mexican Cession. They will go to war with the US, but that'll come later, probably 1840's like in OTL. Ownerzmcown 13:08, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

I made this map of North America, for modern times, a couple weeks back. Forgot about it, lol. I've got a file of state names and capitals for the US, Alaska, and Rupertsland as well.

Northamericamapquilpresent.png

Your work on the American-Mexican War reminded me, lol. I figured here, with more Northern reps overall, a version of the Treaty with more of Mexico in it - the one otl was appealing to the south, given the anti-slavery, etc. of Mexicans to get it passed - would have gone through instead. Alaska, call it more populated and controlled given Russian defeats in Europe, kinda similar in some regards to King's timeline.

Lordganon 11:09, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

I like the idea, and it gives me an idea for another war, I was thinking the Oregon War, US vs. Britain, US wins, and gets all of British Oregon. Thoughts? Ownerzmcown 12:08, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, I wrote the US as getting the rights for most of that area in the treaties following the earlier wars. The claims, though disputed, had been in place before then. As it stands, the US has about 2/3rds of the entire "Oregon Country." Lordganon 12:34, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

Good that sounds better, and Russia having Alaska is okay (No Palin, LOL), but I;m not sure what the name of that state abbreviated as SU is.

~Owner

It's more so that it's independant of Russia. Don't know how yet, but..... suppose it would depend on what path Russia takes.

SU = Superior. Neither of the two areas would be states on their own, and thus under other areas - but together, however, the situation changes to work out in their favor ;)

Lordganon 13:24, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

What about them getting independence amid the Russian Revolution or Civil War, whether or not they'd be communist is kinda a tough decision. And goof idea on Superior, and I'm presuming that NI is Niagara, right? Ownerzmcown 13:36, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

I like that idea, actually. Though, it makes more sense to have them as the bastion of the Whites from the Civil War, with the rest going communist, than the other way around. Whites controlled the fleets otl, figure that would be the same atl. And yes, NI is Niagara, lol. Lordganon 13:46, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

So is this just the map of NA after the Mexican-American War, or NA today? Ownerzmcown 14:09, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

Today. Lordganon 21:54, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

Another thought: To be a little more original, have about a different name for the treaty ending the War between Mexico and the USA? It was signed in a town just outside of Mexico City otl that is now inside the city - but how about a different town, instead of Villa Guadalupe? Would be lots of choices. Lordganon 11:50, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

History is full of insignifigant details, I don't see the point in just changing the name of a treaty. Ownerzmcown 13:24, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

Byzantine Glory

Just wanted to leave you a note here before I forgot. I noticed that it looks like you're going to have the Aztecs survive into the modern era.

There's a major problem, however, with that. Note that I think it's possible to work around it, but it has to be dealt with.

Simply put, the Aztecs were a small warrior kingdom, who through force, managed to make all of their neighbors into their vassals. These vassals combined outnumbered them a great deal, as the Spanish showed otl when they used these people to aid them in taking the Aztec capital. Maps that show them controlling most of Central Mexico really aren't right, as that territory is newly conquered, or vassals, not long-held Aztec territory. Really, this had only happened under a couple good kings right before the Spanish came, and for most of its history the Aztecs had controlled only a tiny amount of territory outside their capital.

Basically, however, the Aztecs were like the Mongols, if any comparison is possibly valid, in that they conquered and vassalized lots of territory, very fast, and that a single bad leader would take them out, like what happened with the Mongols. A failed Spanish invasion would likely have similar effects on the Aztecs as time had on the Mongols.

Lordganon 11:58, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Well then maybe I should add that they brought their vassals under direct control with their new Byzantine weapons. Ownerzmcown 13:33, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Not quite that simple, I'm afraid, unless its a process that takes a very long time. There's just too many of them. Lordganon 13:45, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

But remember that the Spanish diseases would have affected them too, causing them to either hate the Spanish like the Aztecs, or just simply to have been wiped out. Ownerzmcown 13:56, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Not saying that they wouldn't help get rid of the Spanish, but that they wouldn't just submit peacefully to the Aztecs afterwards. Lordganon 14:01, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

What if I just add the natives were too affected by the plague to help either side, and the Aztecs just spent the next decade or so subjagating the vassals into their empire. Ownerzmcown 15:42, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Heh. Yeah, that sounds good, so long as you use the word "violently" and similar words to describe how it would go down - would not be pretty, given the nature of the tribal religions and what would have to be done for them to manage the takeovers. Lordganon 15:46, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Revisting The Idea

Hey LG, I was just thinking about how we said we were gonna revisit the Macedonia vs. Serbia war idea in the spring, well the idea came back to me, and I was just wondering what your thoughts were now? Ownerzmcown 21:21, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Just leave the notes on my talk page, I'll find'em faster, lol.

Spring to me is more like May, lol. Comes from being so far north, I'm afraid.

I figure, in light of the recent events in NA, we'll just hold off until later, and aim to have it start with a coup or something on some Serb holiday later in the year.

Lordganon 08:04, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good. Ownerzmcown 11:04, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

Like I said, hold off until later. Your Glory timelines are making good progress, and I've got a few things that people messed up I have to fix, and maps to make for people, etc. May is more so spring to me, true, but I'm thinking the fall is best, lol - all the May comment was about was that to me spring only hit in May ;)

Aim for November 10th, the day that the last medieval Serbian state ceased to exist in 1540, for the war. The coup that we discussed, which would lead off to the war eventually, on maybe..... June 28th, the anniversary of the Battle of Kosovo in 1389? Dates like that are best because of it being the Nationalists overthrowing the government, and they would feel them incredibly important - something about "Serbia rising again" for the 28th, and the other one just being a good date in general. Few cooked up events done by Serbia, with responses from their neighbors, eventually leading to the war, in between.

We'll discuss what to do with Serbia later on, lol.

Constable?

I've been doing some thinking, Owner, and came to a decision. How would you like to be invited to join the admin team as a Constable? Means you'd get some rollback powers to help fight vandals. Lordganon 10:15, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

I would be truly honored, thank you. Ownerzmcown 20:01, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

You have been nominated. Head on over the to "request for user rights" page and accept it, as well as saying why you would like to hold the position. Lordganon 09:22, March 29, 2011 (UTC)

Ahh, good. You accepted it. Don't forget that you do need to explain a little about why you'd like the position, as well. Lordganon 12:35, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations

Membership badge of the TSPTF

Congratulations, you are now a Constable in the TSPTF. This allows you to showcase the TSPTF membership badge on your user page. Furthermore it gives you the rollback power on this wiki. In the History page of an article you will notice a new option called "rollback". This is an anti-vandalism tool. It allows you to quickly undo edits in case someone has made more than one edit to a page. By clicking rollback it will immediately revert the article to a time before the offending editor edited the page. This is your most important duty. By agreeing to be a constable, you are promising to do your best to patrol for vandals and trolls.

When you get the chance, please go to the TSPTF page, and sign up for some responsibilities. In reality, none of us have the time to devote to all of the duties that are expected of an administrator of the wiki. You are expected, however, to sign up for at least three responsibilities listed in that section. These are duties that you are agreeing to carry out to the best of your ability every time you are on this wiki. I'm hoping that by doing this the members of the TSPTF can efficiently share the work load of the wiki and gives us time for the real reason we are here. Since you are only a constable and do not have the power to delete or block, do not feel obligated to sign up for any duties you do not have the powers to do. Please inform myself or others in a position to do so if you see a problem that involves a needs for either of those things.

Again, congratulations on being elected to the TSPTF and good luck.

Qu'il Tous

Well, the American Civil War, considering all the extra "free" states the USA has, more than likely wouldn't happen. At most, I would say a rebellion in South Carolina, but probably not even that. Avoid the whole thing entirely, in my opinion.

Besides that, the only other real wars fought in that time-frame otl were the first couple wars of German Unification, the Danish-Prussian War and the Austro-Prussian War were fought in the 1860s. Some sort of war in that area of the world - note, I've no idea what the current plan there is - would be good, over some of the same issues.

Lordganon 17:44, April 18, 2011 (UTC)

Heh. Noticed those undos that you did - you have powers now, you could have just rolled it all back, lol.

Well, Prussia is much weaker atl than it is otl in the 1860s, so they would more than likely lose such a war, and badly. Doubt they'd fight Denmark, either. It's a touch more likely that it would be Prussia and Austria against the Rhine nation, with a chance at Danish support.

Note, that the Hungarian revolts in the Austrian Empire otl, which were put down by the Russians otl, are very likely to happen here, and succeed. As an fyi on the whole matter.

Lordganon 07:25, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

Well, as a whole the Confederation, even by this time, wouldn't really be unified enough to fight off much of anyone. Prussia and Austria would likely make inroads, true enough, but once the French saw that the two powers were beating the Rhiners, they would - diplomatically, mind - force them to leave the entire matter as a draw. Don't know how you have planned Denmark-Norway in all this, but I'd have them back the whole matter against the Rhiners in some non-military fashion. In the aftermath of the war, angry at the debts taken on for nothing, and the increased taxes, the Hungarians, already angered by the same factors as in otl, revolt against the Austrians. Without Russian intervention like otl, it succeeds.

When you reply to this, please start a new "Qu'il Tous" section on my page, lol. Getting a touch hard to find it ;)

Lordganon 16:10, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

I wouldn't so much use the word "negotiate" as "demand" with the two sides retaining small conquests, maybe. But overall, I'm in agreement. Lordganon 08:31, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

Off hand, I'd say we need to get some stuff down on nation articles, lol. But, war-wise, there was a few wars in South America at the time, so maybe a war there. A war either in Russia, or involving Russia and the turks, sounds likely too. Lordganon 01:24, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

Macedonia-Serbia War

Well, that really depends on who fights the war. Serbia and Macedonia, obviously, but you know that Rhodope, Partium, and Transylvania will be in on it as well. Is there anyone else?

I know what area Rhodope will get, and know what areas Transylvania claims. The area Partium wants should be pretty obvious too.

Personally, I still think that having Macedonia become Macedonia-Serbia, or some such thing, is a good idea.

What were your thoughts on territory? Seem to recall you had an idea of what you wanted for Macedonia.

I'd also go with the name being the "4th Balkan War," myself. (WWI is quite often referred to, at least academically, as the 3rd Balkan War). I suppose maybe the "Third Balkan War" would work too, though I won't like it, lol. At the very least, calling it the "Macedonia-Serbia War" isn't really an option.

Lordganon 04:09, May 5, 2011 (UTC)

Well, I wouldn't call it either of those names, to be honest. Yugoslavia is just not possible, given the communist activities, and failure of that Kingdom, which make it something Alexander would not want to be associated with, and neither would his government.

The "United Kingdom of Serbia and Macedonia" does sound better, but given the boundaries we'd be talking about, would be really going into the arms of the Radical Serbs that had just been defeated. Macedonia is more of a multi-ethnic nation, and I feel that a name like this would just cause problems. At the same time, however, you have to keep the Serbs happy. Bit of a quandary, really. Myself, I would just stick with the current name, at least for now. If you want to change it, then "Macedonia" would have to be in front, without question.

Montenegro would be a must to be included in the Kingdom, as well - with the deaths of the old Montenegrin Royal Family in Paris, Alexander is, if not the heir, a very strong claimant to it.

Like I said before, there is no need to involve the Turks. At most, they'd be helping defend Bosnian territory. With our coalition against Serbia, they don't stand a chance anyways.

Bosnia - and maybe Croatia - would definitely get involved, though I only see them securing the part between them being realistic. Splitting it between them, of course. The part of Bosnia to their east the the Serbs took is a touch unrealistic, being much easier to defend.

Areas claimed/will be taken are:

  • Rhodope: Dimitrovgrad Municipality, and parts of Babušnica Municipality.
  • Transylvania: My map on that page is a touch off, I admit. But, it amounts to parts of South Banat, Central Banat, Bor, Braničevo, and Zaječar Districts.
  • Partium: Parts of South Bačka District, small parts of the Central Banat District, almost all of North Banat and West Bačka Districts, and all of the North Bačka District.
  • Bosnia and Croatia: Banja Luka and Doboj Regions split roughly in half between the two, all of Brčko district and parts of the other regions of the otl Republika Srpska going to Bosnia.
  • Macedonia: takes the rest, which is most of everything.

I'll work on a map roughly showing this later.

Also, a thought on my part. If you didn't already guess, the long-term future of those small states in Southern Albania is Greek annexation. Given that Serbia is the only real sort-of "potential ally" (not that it will/would ever happen atl, let me assure you) the Greeks has in the Balkans, I've got a proposal: In exchange for them not opposing Greek annexation of these areas, how would Greek blessing for a Macedonian conquest of Serbia sound?

Lordganon 10:22, May 6, 2011 (UTC)

Good, good. Hoped you'd like that deal, lol. Makes my planning easier.

I will try to come up with a better name for you. There's got to be something.

Yeah, I know about the Croatia thing. Given the Serb politicians that we are talking about, I think we can safely say that they would go after the Croats a touch, lol. At the very least, I see no reason why the Croats would let the Serbs conquer Bosnia. But, we can very well just have it be Bosnia and not Croatia, if you'd prefer. Would mean more territory for Macedonia in the end, lol.

Lordganon 12:45, May 6, 2011 (UTC)

Not a final map by any means - extremely rough - but this is kinda the thought:

Serbiasplitmap.png

Lordganon 14:14, May 6, 2011 (UTC)

Well, the UK is often called "Britain" because its name is actually the "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland," and Britain is the island that most of the UK consists of as well. Not really the case here.

Yugoslavia is a name made up in the twenties, no reason why we can't do the same. Or, if my memory serves, there are other names for a country with the same idea that Pan-Slavs came up with in the same era, which will work nicely. Will get back to you on that.

Bosnia and Macedonia together, I'd think, would be their targets, though more so Macedonia. Even with some Turkish support - the Bosnia garrison, and supplies - they'll be roughly evenly matched. The Vidinites, who currently receive some sponsorship from Serbia, will see it vastly increase, and begin launching attacks, which when combined with their own claims and the Serbian nationalist claims on both of them - look at a map of "Greater Serbia" for more - will lead to the others becoming involved as well.

Lordganon 22:50, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

Well, you're forgetting that in many regards, Serbia is the equal or the better of Macedonia. A total blockade, even with some Turkish support - which I really would rather not deal with at all if we can help it - is really not likely, and a no-fly zone is probably not possible either.

Some sort of military threat by Serbia would be met by an equal response by Macedonia and Bosnia, with some sort of letter of Turkish support, with as much as they can spare. Remember, Turkey has it's own problems elsewhere and can't really commit much to help like that.

Following the exchange of threats, Serbia invades Macedonia and Bosnia, without a declaration of war. After losing some border areas, Macedonian forces, backed by Albanian forces, manage to stop the Serbs in their tracks. In Bosnia, the Turkish Garrison, Bosnian soldiers, and most likely some Croatian forces - I really doubt they'd just sit by and let a potentially hostile neighbor conquer another peaceful one, though they won;t do offensive operations or the like - fight a losing war, but eventually manage to stop them near the capital (kind of a siege, similar to otl but with a line of supply from Croatia and point west).

Feeling cocky, they get the Vidinites to launch their attack in Rhodope, with the aim of furthering their claims on Rhodope-controlled territory. Pretty obvious who does it, and it gets the other three in on it. About this time, the Greek offer goes through, allowing Macedonian troops to be moved from that border to the front. This allows them to counter-attack, along with Serbian forces having to pull out to fight the Partiumites, Rhodopians, and Transylvanians that are invading. In Bosnia a counterattack, after all of this, goes through and starts to push them back.

Macedonians, with their Albanian allies, are very successful, with their armor taking most of Serbia, including parts of Bosnian claims, which the Bosnians are not able to reclaim completely, though they do retake part of it and their original territory. The BSA nations (Rhodope, Partium, and Transylvania - don't worry about what it stands for, you'll find out in the next few weeks, lol) more or less stop at their claimed areas, though Rhodope, being the furthest south, does encounter the Macedonian spearheads at roughly its edge. Greece, per the agreement, gets the tiny Albanian states.

Air war is mostly a draw, until when the BSA nations intervene, adding their small forces to the fight. Naval war would eventually go to Macedonia and its allied forces, but not by much.

Something along those lines as an outline, with the details to be fleshed out later on. Thoughts?

Lordganon 09:30, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Figured you'd like it. Won't be the first war I'm written all or part of on here, lol.

No doubt, that'd be a definite goal for them. Naval war will be entirely up to you for this one, lol.

Yeah, that map is kinda what I had in mind.

Well, it only really will involve nations under my watch, but it's an alliance that I've dropped a few hints around with regards to negotiations that will lead to its formation. Won't be involved in this, though some of its members will be. Stands for "Black Sea Accords." Of course, you're welcome to contribute when the proposal is made =)

Lordganon 10:45, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

I'd just like to point out that if that map is accurate, and Macedonia just absorbes Serbia, Macedonia will have about 7 million Serbs and about 2 million Macedonians. Not really a sustainable occupation I think. I don't really see any reason Serbia would attack Bosnia other than its alliance with Macedonia. And Serbia has a cassus belli for war, the Macedonian occupation of Serbian territory in the south, so why wouldn't they use it? Attacking without a declaration of war makes them a pariah state, when if they have justification they would be seen in the right by much of the international community. This would likely keep Croatia, Rhodope, and Transylvania out of the war and keep it between Serbia, Bosnia, Macedonia, and Turkey. Looking at it this way Serbia would be morons to act in this way.Oerwinde 18:10, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

These are the same nutjobs that started the 1980s wars atl, and the 1990s wars otl, coming back to power (well, their political descendants, but still) They've every right to attack Bosnia, and more, in their opinion.

The view of Macedonia is that the territory is rightfully theirs, as is the rest of Serbia. Won't be easy for them, but it'll work out. Both have equal justification for the area.

Rest plays out as planned above. Serbia, until the terrorist attacks in Smolyan and the Macedonian deal with Greece, will actually have an advantage. Not morons, just very risky.

Lordganon 21:59, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

I still don't see why they wouldn't use a valid cassus belli to get international opinion either on their side or at least split. A war to liberate occupied land would be much more acceptable than an unprovoked attack. They have to be competent enough to realize that.

And whats the justification for the Macedonian claim? Just imperialistic goals? I'm behind on the discussion so all I see is Owner wanting to create a new Macedonian empire.Oerwinde 08:21, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

The discussion has taken place pretty much since before Serbia was done, in several different locations.

The King of Macedonia hasn't dropped his claims to the Serbian areas of the former Yugoslavia, as per his status as the Crown Prince of Serbia, as well as being King in Macedonia. They've also had military issues over similar issues on several occasions - both claim the territory of the other. Macedonia isn't recognized in many fashions by the international community, and Serbia barely is - which won't last beyond a couple months of the new regime, I assure you.

By and by, the international community will ignore this war. Neither of the main parties are in the LoN, being barred atm, and none of their neighbors that are actually members will complain, each having a reason to see Serbia weakened. And the regime that will come to power in Serbia first will make Milosevic and his cronies otl look nice in most regards.

Lordganon 09:43, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Heh. Left a message about that a while ago on the last war section we were using, lol. But, June 28th for the coup, and maybe November 10th for the start of the fighting? Both are dates significant to this type of Serbian nationalist, and I figure that's the kind of thing that they would do. Lordganon 11:37, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, just gimme a couple days. It'll take several maps to get the general idea, have to hunt them and mark them, along with some historical research. Lordganon 06:02, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

Just a thought, Greece's support of Serbia is mostly to keep Macedonia in check, and due to Macedonia occupying part of both Greece's and Serbia's territory. Macedonia could use this opportunity to improve relations with Greece as well as their international standing. Rather than the Albanian territory, if Macedonia agreed to a timeline for the handover of much of the occupied greek territory, minus the heavily Macedonian settled area, which maybe could be like a jointly administered area? And in return Greece allows Macedonia's entry to the LoN, compensates Macedonia for any infrastructure improvements within the returned territory, and recognizes Alexander's claim to Serbia. Recognition by Greece and their allowing Macedonia's entry to the LoN would soften a lot of international opinion towards Macedonia and by and large would make them much more successful on the world stage.Oerwinde 08:23, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

We've discussed that in the past a touch, and agreed to let it rest for a bit. Currently, the idea of both having some control over much of the area (similar to the setup I put up in Thrace) with the heavily settled areas not included is on the table, though I forget where we talked about it. The Albanian deal is a start in maybe going in that direction. Lordganon 08:37, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

All right, invasion routes. There's several maps on wikipedia, I'll be giving you the links to them. Hunted through wars in the region, and figure I've got a bit of an idea where strongholds, etc. would be, or ridges, or the like. Note that between google maps and wikpedia you should be able to find out where the strongholds, etc. are.

Maps:

Topographic maps of the region, for Serbia/Kosovo/Montenegro, Albania, and Macedonia. Advances, as a generally rule of thumb, aim to go along river valleys, and other lower parts of the maps, while avoiding the higher areas, at least at first, both because they are better-defended, easier to defend, and harder to advance in terrain-wise.

Other Notes, for strong-points/fortresses, and possible fates in the war here:

- Aleksinac, Ljubic very good defense position for retreating Serbs - Plocnik, Brus, Kraljevo, Kuci(esp) defense positions on Seb lines after counterattack or shortly thereafter - Kratovo and Kumanovo seems a good defense position for Macedonian lines after initial attack - Kosovo Polje, site of the Battle of Kosovo, was chosen for it being a very good defense position for defending. Serb lines after counterattack - Veliko Gradiste, Golubac strongpoint v.s. Trans~ - Sabac, Smederevo good spot for last strongholds, but Novi Sad likely the final spot of resistance - Pirot partially invested by Rhodope, esp. fort, than Macedonians come on other side and between them it is crushed

Will keep looking a touch. If you've a question about any of this, please lemme know. I know that those topographic maps can be a touch hard to read sometimes, lol.

Lordganon 12:55, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Owner, do me a favor and tell me when you schedule this war to start. Trabizond and I were planning for the Sultanate-Trabzon War to occur sometime later this year, but that can happen whenever. That way there can be one war at a time and more Turkish resources available for each. So far this war is looking good. I'm looking forward to seeing it when its more complete. Caeruleus 22:46, June 3, 2011 (UTC)

For the record, what he said doesn't matter, as Turkey is not going to be involved in this. Lordganon 07:18, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

If you involve the MDL or Bosnia, Turkey will automatically be involved on some level. I don't expect large Turkish involvement though, assuming MDL or Bosnia are involved as your discussion mentioned. It will be primarily a Macedonian operation. Trust me LG, I'm not trying to impose here nor am I trying to change or hijack your war. I'm simply asking for some notification that's all. Caeruleus 15:07, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

No, they won't be. Simply put, you're not getting involved in this, at all, no ifs, ands, or buts. You have no control over Bosnia, so no, we don't have to deal with you at all. The MDL has not been mentioned, and will not be involved. Please actually read the discussion, instead of just glancing at it, and you'd see that. Apologies that this is on your page Owner, but he's not the type to read it anywhere else. Lordganon 21:20, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

I'm afraid I must agree with LG on this one Caeruleus, Macedonia would want to prove that it can fight a war mostly on its own, or at least without making it look like Macedonia can only fight a war with Turkey's help. Politically, I believe it makes sense. Ownerzmcown 22:12, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

Ok. That's fine. Though I think you're both missing my point about Bosnia. Turkey and Bosnia allies and Bosnia would probably need Turkish assistance to do anything significant. So while Macedonia would not be receiving any assistance, Bosnia probably would be. Btw, I hope you're involving Vlad in this discussion since Bosnia is his article. Caeruleus 06:25, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

We already have the permissions needed from Vlad. That's long been the case. Bosnia does not need any help from you, as the Croatians will be funneling supplies to them, also working within our permissions, as will others. Your Turkish Garrison will be ignored, for the most part, in all of this, especially during the fighting the Bosnians will be doing. Far as I'm concerned, there is no need to tell you anything, and I won't be doing so. Lordganon 06:46, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

That's why I didn't ask you. But that's largely what I needed to know anyway. I look forward to seeing it when completed. It's looking good so far. Caeruleus 14:26, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

Serbia and Macedonia Kingdom Name

Benn hunting for these, as promised. Erred slightly in what I told you about it before - there is a severe lack of names that those patriots used, though I feel that they are out there and just in Serbian, so I can't locate them, lol.

So, been looking through Roman and Byzantine names, trying my best to avoid the Byzantine ones, given the Greek connections atl to that time. So, that in mind, here they are:

  • Illyria: An Ancient Kingdom, and after that a Roman Province. Covers 1/3-1/2 of the potential kingdom, but the name is more so used to refer to areas now in Croatia, which the old kingdom and province largely consisted of.
  • Dardani: Another Ancient Kingdom, and a Roman/Byzantine provincial structure. Varied in size, but covered at its largest Kosovo, reaching outside its borders on all sides. Usually used more otl to refer to Kosovo, however.
  • Praevalitana: An ancient Roman Province. Occupied what is now northern Albania, most of Montenegro, parts of Serbia, and a touch of Kosovo and Macedonia. Generally associated with Albania, however.
  • Dacia: Roman Diocese, from when those were the provincial structure of Rome, half of the former Moesia Diocese. Occupied what is now large portions of Serbia, Western Bulgaria, and Montenegro. Name, however, is much more often associated with the old Roman Province of the same name, which lies in Romania.
  • Moesia: Roman Diocese, from when those were the provincial structure of Rome, later split into the Macedonia and Dacia Dioceses. Stretched from the Danube to Crete, encompassing what is today much of Serbia, Macedonia, Greece, Albania, Western Bulgaria, Montenegro, and parts of Bosnia. No real problems with it other than age.
  • Illyricum: Praetorian prefecture of the Byzantine Empire. Encompassed a territory from Austria and Slovenia in the west, Hungary and Romania in the north, western Bulgaria and Macedonia in the east, and the Med. in the south. Dacia and Moesia were both part of this prefecture, as its sub-units, once again called dioceses. However, same problems to some degree as Illyria, but with the Byzantine aspects included.

Overall, the best names, territory-wise, are Illyricum, Moesia, and Dacia, in that order. However, they all come with problems, to some degree. Up to you if you want one of them or not. All are on wikipedia for your viewing pleasure.

Lordganon 11:25, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

You'd be surprised. Illyria is still used, to a certain degree, and Dardania is very much so a name used for Kosovo in a few corners currently - it's even used in a few of their more nationalist political party names. I've no doubt that all but Dacia - as I said, more used to refer to what is now Romania - have been used in some corners at one time or another. At any rate, four more names, slightly more modern - though I like Moesia myself, lol.

  • Velbazhd: Was one of the Serbian states that emerged for a short time after the Serbian Empire collapsed in 1371. Occupied what is now parts of Serbia and Macedonia, as well as southwest Bulgaria. Ottoman vassal for almost all its existence, gone in 1395.
  • Rascia: Name of the First Serbian Principality. Contained parts of what is today Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Albania, and largely Serbia. Really not that suitable, however, given that it was in essence the start of the Serbian Empire, which doesn't fly well given the set-up atl.
  • Brankovic: Another 1371 Serbian state. Contained parts of what is now Bosnia, Kosovo, Serbia, Montenegro, and Macedonia, including the cities of Pristina and Skopje. While it did last until 1412, it was also named directly for its ruler, Vuk Branković.
  • Prilep: Another 1371 Serbian state. Contained parts of what is today Albania, Macedonia, and Greece, and was centered at Prilep in South-Central Macedonia. Lasted until 1395, but really not the best name for the state, territory-wise.

Lordganon 12:27, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Remember that you're trying to create a pretty ethnic neutral state. That's kinda the idea for the really old names - they were in place before the Serbs, etc. arrived from the east, so there won't be any attachment to any one ethnic group over another. As a touch of an fyi, lol. Lordganon 09:47, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

War Strategies

Well, that's a good plan in general. However, while it would work as you describe in areas further north, the Balkans are a touch too wide for a pincer movement of that size to be realistic.

Have the pincers lead off from the towns of Lipjan and Kamenica, in otl Kosovo, but atl are on, by my best guess, the Serb side of the border, though barely. Obviously, they aim for Skopje, with the intent of it being captured and surrounded. They do advance a bit all over, but definitely going further here.

At this, they have success to start, but they are eventually halted at the village of Studeničani, on the outskirts of the city, narrowly avoiding it being surrounded. They then slowly force them back when reinforcements arrive (here the Greek deal comes in), to otl Macedonia borders. From there, the dogpile allows them further a little later on.

Another attack, from around Podgorica in Montenegro, is also launched, with the initial aim of taking Shkoder, which they manage, and then they advance from there, hoping to help the Skopje campaign. The reinforcements, however, throw them back to Shkoder, besieging them in that city. Sometime between this point and the breakout into Serb territory north of Skopje, they take the city, and advance at the same time beyond it.

In Bosnia, again, two pincers. One, near the Croat city of Mostar but not going over the line, goes north, and another, coming from north of the Bosnian city of Zenica, heads south. Their goal, obviously, to surround Sarajevo. To a certain extent they manage this, but a small link remains open to Croatia at Prozor-Rama, where supplies and Croat volunteers come in. Past that, an attack gets launched on Sarajevo from the northeast, getting into its suburbs, but is beaten off when the Macedonian offensive, after the get to the otl Macedonia border, launches, and the Bosnians can counterattack from there. Won't be the entire Serb area of Bosnia that they capture, but should be a fair chunk of it.

About the only other things is that the Serbs, who atm are reigning in the Vidinites, supply and fund them after the coup. They conduct a bombing in Smolyan, after the otl Macedonian border is reached (more or less), with obvious evidence implicating them, and from there, the Serbs, leading to a Rhodope declaration of war. Note that about 1/2 of the Rhodope Army is stationed in military camps, usually closer to Vidin than not, and much of the rest is in Smolyan.

Transylvania is on record as saying they will fight with the Rhodopians in such an event. And where they go, the Partians must follow. After that point, the Serbs collapse as they try to defend themselves on all fronts.

Lordganon 22:17, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

!!

South Slavia sounds like a very good start to a name, lol. A bit awkward, maybe, but it actually doesn't sound too bad, lol. Hints at heritage, the former Yugoslavia, and a new Kingdom, so long as the right wording is used to not be just "Yugoslavia."

Hmmm.....

"Kingdom of South Slavia" - Јужна Славија (Južna SlaviJa) in Macedonian, Јужна Славија (Južna Slavija) in Serbian, and a rough equivalent in Albanian is Sllavët e jugut (means Southern Slavs, but close enough)

Must be two words, not one, however. Otherwise, it's just "Yugoslavia" all over again.

Heh.

You are correct, good sir - I'd forgotten the exact date. We had indeed placed the 28th as when it would happen.

For the record, I had the general making the coup take the entire National Assembly under his control. No one's getting out from there. Maybe some of the Provincial assembly members, but none of the federal ones. Lordganon

Hi Ownerzmcown! I can suggest that you add Carlos Ibañez del Campo instead Bartolomé Blanche in the list of commanders of the Fifth Global War (I think is a more probable candidate). Just if you want. jeje Regards! --Katholico 20:54, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

Axis vs Allies

Hi, Owner. As you may know, the original AvA is sadly defunct. The end had dissolved into a quagmire of space race, sports, inventions. In short, it was a hell of a mess. However, I have created a new AvA, the Axis vs Allies Revised. I am not going to allow what happened to the original map game happen here. As of such, I invite you to be part of my map game. I will also allow you to be a mod, since I have played many games with you.. Once again, I invite you to the new, improved, and revised version of Axis vs Allies.

Serbian War

November 10th is the day we were discussing for the fireworks starting.

That said, feel free to add events for the leadup. Need more of them, and as it stands right now I'm going to be busy with something else a touch longer.

Lordganon 00:15, August 29, 2011 (UTC)

Heh

Nice to see you, for sure.

To answer the question, Schonhausen is definitely in Prussia. I assume you're asking because of Bismarck? ;)

Lordganon 23:34, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

Heh. Thought so.

I've been working on that to some degree. Mostly in North America, mind, as we have a "modern" map for it, but nowhere else.

Well, first we need to establish borders, what countries exist, etc. I recall having said something before about that too, lol.

I can draw up a few modern maps for Europe, if you'd like. But, we need to first flesh out more of a history.

Lordganon 00:39, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Well, I really don't consider another Mexican-American war plausible. More likely is a Mexican attempt to regain Central America, and an American intervention to save them. But another general war, no.

Suppose that answers the question - war in Germany it is.

On another note, I finished the lists of Prime Ministers and Governors of Rupertsland last night. Thinking I may do British PMs next, or have the various kingdoms I've set up get their monarchs more formalized.

More to think about, lol.

Lordganon 00:53, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Way I figure it, The Rhinelanders are gonna get knocked down a peg. They're just a recipe for civil war if I ever saw it. All it would take is a dispute between the members over the guy in charge. Have a Civil War there while the French are distracted, and Prussia goes in and takes territory. Maybe another Asian War, and the Hanover region/Saxony seized, maybe. Have the civil war between the Bavarians and Hessians, maybe?

I figure a Central American war would be a Mexican attempt to gain back control, kind of a redemption after the loss in the Mexican-American War. Fighting through Guatemala, and American moves cause the war to end - maybe in exchange for the canal. And any canal, I'd prefer through Nicaragua - makes more sense, really.

Lordganon 03:33, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Don't know why you'd think that. To me, it is definitely preferable that Prussia wins in some form. Simply put, the French and French-aligned states aren't going to win every time.

Overall, I'd like to see the Confederation eventually split into like 3 or 4 smaller states. Prussia'd eat off a bit of territory, and a bit would likely join the Swiss, but overall, a breakup into a few smaller parts. Bavaria, Hessen, and a couple-three more. I figure the next war is a good point to take care of it. Given the dates already established, probably in the 1870s - there's a few rulers of larger states that died then.

Figure I'll take care of the Central American War. I've been formulating a bit of a regional history, anyways.

Lordganon 14:31, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Well, otl it got the way it did because, for a large part, they ran out of easy room on the mainland. Not quite the same way, here, with the land from both Mexico and Canada. Really, I can see something akin to the Spanish-American War happening - they do still control their islands in the Caribbean, right? - and them expanding influence in that area. Maybe an expansion of Liberia, to include more territory, too?

Another thing is, Latin America overall is more powerful/stable here. I can see them intervening in Central America a few times, propping up there a little maybe, mind.

Lordganon 06:53, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

Serbia and Macedonia

If I recall correctly, either Macedonia is building a Serbian vessel in its yards, or Serbia is building a Macedonian vessel in its yards. If my memory is not faulty as to the overall act, which side is building for whom?

Depending on who is building it, I'm planning on having it seized. That is, if my memory is right overall.

Any thoughts overall, too, as to events inside of Serbia, and overall relations, before I forget to ask?

Lordganon 07:29, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

Ohhhhh I remember now. It was just the building plans we were discussing. How about Serbia sells them still, yet the copy received by Macedonians has a major, obvious, flaw?

Also, I've posted a few newsbits. Other ones to come are the ship plans, the 8th or so having minor border incursions in Bosnia, and then the war itself - invasions, as we discussed - on the 10th.

Basically, what I'm trying to do is show the attitudes, and goals of the new regime.

And, another thought on the KoM afterwards - maybe some sort of triple monarchy? Like, it has the Kingdoms of Serbia, Montenegro, and Macedonia in it - Macedonia would be the biggest in all ways, mind - with some sort of other name, as discussed before, overall. The King has the claim to all of them, after all.

Lordganon 06:35, October 24, 2011 (UTC)

Trust me when I say a German-style nobility is a bad idea. The nobles have too much power. As for a British one, that's actually the case in most monarchies, and here too.

But, what I'd actually meant was more so it be like a cross between Scotland/England before the 1707 Act of Union and the Modern UK - basically, actually referred to as separate kingdoms like pre-1707, but with one common government like the modern UK, and the king from both ends, being king in all three. Kind of like the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland that existed from 1801-1921, just with each formally devolved somewhat like the otl UK.

And what about the ship plans?

Lordganon 07:26, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

Near the bottom of the Albania talk page. This is the part I refer to:

I was thinking that Macedonia could buy the design to the Kotor class frigate from Serbia, build like to or 3 of them, and give one to Albania. Ownerzmcown 20:06, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

That would work, though, the frigates were never built in the 1980s here (construction was due to start like a year after DD, or not long afterwards, in Croatia). We've got the Serbia article currently saying that Serbia is working on upgrading the design, and production would start soon (I figure in summer they would be laying down the keels).

But that definitely works as something for later in the year.

Lordganon 20:18, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

So what should I put then? Also, please check the Macedonia talk page for the new section I added on. Ownerzmcown 20:20, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

Well, the keels could be laid down now, I'm sure. I would say that simply saying that Macedonia was buying the design, pending its completion, would be good, and that they will build for to give to the Albanians alongside their own.

As a general rule, modern frigates appear to take anywhere from 11 months (USA) to around 2 years (everyone else). As an fyi.

I'm working on replying to Macedonia, Owner. Give me a bit, lol.

Lordganon 20:51, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

Basically, I'm making sure the Serbs look like a nutjob regime, ala otl early 1990s. This one is designed to piss off Macedonia - note that virtually all of their other neighbors are angry at them now, lol.

Lordganon 13:41, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

Something like the military environment you describe is what we'd already decided on, lol. Picture it, more so, as Barbarossa directly leading to Stalingrad, followed by the Russian 1941-9142 winter counterattack, around Skopje. Further west would be more like the fighting in the Crimea otl.

A referendum sounds like an idea - but only in Macedonia. Don't see why the other two would be entitled to an opinion.

My thought, however....

Keep things as stands. Three kingdoms after things are done, have them all setup kinda like Macedonia now, politically. An assembly, headed up by a president, for each. Above that, institute an overall parliament more or less as you describe, with the two houses and the PM. Transfer the current Macedonian government and its leadership up to the new national one. Lower House elected, Upper House, like in Germany with the states, appointed by the kingdoms here.

More or less, this is the same setup, slightly adjusted, you see in the modern UK. To a certain extent, it's also like basically the setup of each federal country in the world. Though, the best example of this I can think of is the "Manticore Star Empire" from David Weber's "Honor Harrington" series, lol.

Restructure the areas under the Kingdoms, of course. Lose a few districts, redo them overall, etc. While I'd keep northern KoM parts - the Areas of Serbia and Kosovo - in Macedonia, I'd transfer the half district of Montenegro to that Kingdom.

Lordganon 12:54, October 31, 2011 (UTC)

Since my cohorts aren't answering, I'd like your opinion: What would your thoughts be on a regal name and a house name for the new Greek Emperor? Lordganon 15:49, October 31, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, they'd have the right to vote - but not in the referendum. This is about a big change for the Macedonians, but the other two are having an entirely new government made for them in either case. Their opinion really doesn't matter too much. But, with the Party you can have them be the originator of the change, which will mean more of a say for Montenegro and Serbia.

None of those are options, I'm afraid, for names. The goal of it is really to have a name that appeals at least a bit to all the major groups. Plus, you have the conversion, too. Really, it's not all that odd for a monarch to take a regal name entirely different, ala~ the Pope, from their given name - and when someone changes religions, they usually get a new name for that religion given to them, and often enough they will actually change theirs.

Lordganon 16:12, October 31, 2011 (UTC)

To a certain extent, that's what I've been looking at. Though, I'm more in favor of a new name, unused by previous monarchs. So hard to choose.... sigh. Lordganon 20:23, October 31, 2011 (UTC)

Put up the newsbits for the ship plans today. Figured I'd let you know and leave them here.

October 14th, 2011: Serbs Respond: KRAGUJEVAC, Serbia - President Delić vehemently denied the Macedonian accusation of earlier today, calling them liars and thieves, and saying that their experts were "fools."

October 14th, 2011: Fraudulent Plans: SKOPJE, Macedonia - In an announcement this morning, the Macedonian government announced that during the night, their naval experts had looked over the plans they received yesterday from Serbian representatives, and determined that they were not what had been promised, in the least. Rather, they were the original plans from the 1980s, with a few small modifications added that would make the design unsafe in rougher seas. Furthermore, they revealed that the ambassador had went to the Serbian port of Bar and traded the funds he had gotten to what the Macedonian government suspected to be arms dealers.

October 13th, 2011: Plans Turned Over: SKOPJE, Macedonia - As agreed between the two governments last December - prior to the coup in Serbia - the upgraded plans for the Kotor-class frigates from the 1980s were today handed over to Macedonian representatives in Skopje. In addition to the funds already sent last winter, more funds were given to the Serbian ambassador, who quickly flew with it northwards.

Added them to Serbia, you'll need to do so for Macedonia. Feel free to change them if you need to, but let me know.

Lordganon 20:30, November 10, 2011 (UTC)

Revolutions 1750

Hello! I am glad you are on board the map game and I hope it'll be a good one. Before I start, I just want to notify you of some things. First off, it looks like you're going to end up going to war with your French colonies when they revolt (should they survive the French and Indian War). Until then, I am a colony and you can do what you want your colonies (within reason).

I'm going to extreme lengths to prevent this game from becoming implausible. Please note that moderators will have Delete on Sight permissions. This means they can delete anything they see implausible. Granted, I'll probably just cross it out so I don't confust people, but be warned that the mods reserve the right to remove problematic people from the game.

There will be algorithms factoring wars and revolutions. Keep in mind that, unless improperly done, an algorithm's result is final. Moderators will be keeping track of the algorithms. These algorithms are to keep the game plausible and fair.

The moderators are an impartial and fair group of players that have shown enough responsibility and plausibility to hold their positions. They will not be biased or unfair. That being said, please don't accuse them of being biased or unfair.

If I didn't scare you away from the map game with all this stuff, feel free to post on the map game. Good luck!

The Third Balkan War has been - correctly - used much more so to refer to the First World War, though some do call the Yugoslav Wars that name. The Fourth would be the Yugoslav Wars. It's a name I'd really prefer to avoid.

Any other ideas? I suppose that I could always just call it "War of Serbian Aggression" or name it for some sort of precise cause at the invasion point/date.

Transylvania

Sometime in the Spring. The Vidinites the Serbs are sponsoring will conduct a bombing inside Rhodope - likely, in Smolyan, but it's TBD - getting them to declare war. Transylvania - and Partium, given things - will, as per arrangements and Transylvanian opinions, join them within hours.

I haven't gotten to the article yet, but Partium and Trans~ are going to be doing some efforts of their own in southeastern Hungary, reclaiming the area between their borders, as well as the area between Partium and Serbia. This is partially from their ambitions, and partially because of Serbian actions. This lasts early December, to probably mid-January.

Their professional military is smaller, true, though well-armed. But, they have a very large number of reserves and militia that will be called on - heck, they will actually have been used in Hungary, so they will be on active duty at the time, lol. There's also conscripts in the eastern garrisons that could be used, to some degree, as well.

About the only thing they will need is to buy arms and equipment - and for that, Greece and Crimea will prove very willing, lol.

Lordganon 01:22, December 24, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Idea

Well, Transylvania is definitely gravitating in a direction, after a fashion - it's more so commercial links to Crimea and from there, Greece, but the point remains - towards the Greeks. The Partians kinda have to follow that one - not that they'd be really inclined otherwise on their own, mind.

Really, all the states at war with Serbia will have large areas taken in the peace to digest. The Greeks will too, really, and are still rebuilding/working on their new government.

Lordganon 04:22, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, the page definitely needs it. Waiting for the 1st to do it.

I'm more of a mind that some sort of détente would be likely between the two - with the agreement during the war (Macedonia "allows" the Greeks to take the tiny Albanian states in the South in exchange for the Greeks moving forces away from the border for the rest of the war) forming a basis for it. As an fyi, two of the little states will be annexed and the other will join the Federation in some form (i.e. surrenders without fighting in exchange for membership)

Could go either way though, I suppose.

Lordganon 15:17, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Considering that the deal only helps the Greek government, shouldn't be any real effects. If anything, support for the governing coalition would increase, though. Lordganon 15:33, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Avaro

The game is starting now. Thanks for playing. Flag of South Korea.png PitaKang- (Talk|Contribs) 21:59, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

Here's Where It Goes!

Well, better terms with the Greeks, no doubt. Way I figure it, any good diplomacy is progress, and we've established there will be some. Of course, however, the obvious issues still linger.

Rhodope.... depends on how happy both are with their gains. Probably an improvement, as the increased territory of Macedonia and the end of the Vidinites will mean more Rhodopian troops can be moved to the frontiers in the east.

Your thoughts?

Lordganon 10:55, January 16, 2012 (UTC)

Don't forget, however, that while Rhodope is not all that strong, they do have concrete backing from both Greece and Transylvania. You're right, mind, about them not being a threat - they are going to be busy with their objectives for a long time to come.

Opinions of Turkey will not change one way or the other for pretty much all powers, I'd expect, at least short-term. Long-term.... well, former Serbia will not be inclined to like the Macedonia-Turkey alliance. They'll accept it, but.... well, let's just say that old feelings don't go away easily in the Balkans. In Macedonia itself, it flies well, but north of there it will not be quite so happy. Still, things will not really change overall.

For Greece and Macedonia, I expect relations are going to improve. A deal like the one to be put in place, will lead to more of them. As I've said before, we need to work out something to do with Macedonian Greece that help the situation. My preference is something like the one the Greeks have with Rhodope in Thrace over at least part of the region in question, but that's what needs to get worked on, overall, between us.

Transylvania - and Partium, for what it's worth - will have the same potential for relations as Rhodope - depends on if they are happy with what they get in the war, with regards to territory.

The Turks are probably going to be mad at the Greeks gaining more power by taking the three city-states - more troops can be directed eastwards, and a slight increase in manpower follows too. But at this point, relations between the two can't really get worse, so there's no change there, really.

Currently, there's really four big powers in the Balkans (the Croats just really aren't that tough, in the end) - the Greeks, Serbs, Transylvanians, and Macedonians. At the end of the war, that will drop Serbia. Short-term, having to digest its new lands, Macedonia will be weaker than the other two. Long-term, it will be as strong or stronger than Transylvania, but still weaker overall than Greece - and that, of course, is what the alliance with Turkey is for.

Lordganon 16:41, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

Not really, Owner.

Just because relations improve between Greece and Macedonia doesn't make them friends - I like to think of it as less of enemies, as their interests will continue to conflict no matter how much things improve. Think of it as similar to the US and Russia after the fall of the USSR, not really enemies, but not friends either. The Turkish alliance remains essential, in the end, for their defense, given that the Greeks are stronger than they are.

Turkey won't be a nuisance, really. So long as they don't do anything stupid, at least. Won't be awkward, either.

The war page I'm updating bit by bit, as time passes. Currently, it's at roughly the end of December, and the first half of January will go up after Saturday. (The idea here is that way, I can do newsbits if desired when I do updates instead of having to remember to add them later on)

Lordganon 03:02, January 18, 2012 (UTC)

More or less. The army will reduce in size to whatever it needs to watch the current borders, and operate in former Serbia.

Some sort of settlement between the Kingdom and Greece will need to happen eventually, with regards to borders and claims. About that only way for peace, overall. For the future, mind.

The Black Sea Accords, at this time, are primarily meant to be a means of giving special economic treatment to a few nations. Kind of like a souped up trading agreement. However, the other aspect is that any attack in the region - which threatens their commerce, trade, and economies - is recognized as a threat to all, and dealt with accordingly. Basically, it's a bunch of trading agreements interwoven with a security agreement. Not an alliance, in the grand scheme of things, but it is something. Though, you're right about the primary goal of the Greeks in the endeavor, and the main intended target (though, if you look at the membership, you'll note that this includes Siberia as well, long-term)

Lordganon 09:09, January 19, 2012 (UTC)

On another note, I'm starting new versions of my maps, and I'm at the point where I'm doing names. These include new borders, etc, and include what the borders will roughly be at the close of the current war(s). So, I'm in need of whatever the Kingdom's new name is going to be. Currently, as I noted in a section somewhere up this page, I feel that the "(Triple) Kingdom of South Slavia" (always with the last two words separated) would be a good option. Your thoughts?

Lordganon 11:10, January 19, 2012 (UTC)

<taps slightly as a remainder> Lordganon 01:43, February 21, 2012 (UTC)

Good, good. Allows more map done.

Bosnia's going to be digesting territory for a while, and integrating Serbs. Bet on a lot of Serbs leaving, and the Islamic bit overall getting a touch relaxed.

I suspect that Bosnia and Croatia will suffer relations-wise in the long run.

Croatia and Slovenia, probably feeling safer, will likely go more anti-Venice. Probably get closer, too.

Well, at this time one of the two frigates is gone, and the other is heavily damaged. One of the two corvettes is very damaged too, and the other one is barely nicked.

Nothing on the subs yet - I figure that one or two of the newest class will make some sort of suicide run with elements of the leadership, but the rest will be up for grabs.

Thanks, Benkarnell (talk) 15:27, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

Request regarding Macedonia (1983: Doomsday)

Hello again. Clearly you're not very active, but I'd like to reach out in the spirit of the Editorial Guidelines (1983: Doomsday). Two years ago, a user named DasBull$ wrote a proposal for Alexander, king of Macedonia. He never contacted you for permission, but the work seems to respect what you had written. I'm now asking for permission to graduate that article and mark it canon. If I don't hear from you, I plan to move it forward. The Doomsday timeline is slowly waking up, and we're addressing several old proposals. Benkarnell (talk) 17:21, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
