(GBW) Phase 2 - Information Reveal & Discussion

Recommended Posts

Phase 2 

The year is 2019. The Brick World is, as it often finds itself, in a state of tension and uncertainty. The eastern countries on the super continent find themselves plagues economically and politically due to strains caused by the international Drug Cartels based out of Val Verde. 

Val Verde has become a ripe breeding ground for not only narcotic influence, but also a home to freedom fighters from all walks of life and sections of the world. The international community has been both unable and unwilling to take any joint action against the country. Run adrift due to corruption stemming from drug money, the goverment puts on a face to the international community some times throwing them a bone to try and show some form of progress. The unspoken truth is that those with money and power behind the scenes are the real government. Aside from the actual problems founded in narcotics and weapons coming in and out of the country, it has also created a number of tense relationships between neighboring countries. Trioluan and the Coral Islands are often at ends with each other over enforcing travel through the Straigh of Pellon cutting through the continent. On the other side, Plantasea and the Coral Islands over enforce traffic coming into Eagle Ridge Bay and often times find each other in tense stand offs over who has the right to enforce control over the waterway entry. 

Unilateral talks to commit any international efforts in Val Verde collapsed due to failures from Fulkasho and Latveria. Fulkasho was once a rich agriculturally based country which fell victim to religious extremism. With it's close proximity to Val Verde, both narcotics and weapons are often trafficked back forth between the two countries through both Plantasea and Toohati. The Fulkasho Government has turned a blind eye to its neighbors troubles as long as the money and guns keep flowing across international boundaries. A recent attack on a freighter from Filace was traced back to a group in Fulkasho. The Filace Air Force leveled the compound in which the attack was planned in an overwhelming show of force drawing sharp criticism from the international community as the Fulkasho Government claims this was a Red Brick Medical Facility providing aid and relief to international refugees. 

On the other hand the government of Latveria has shut itself out from the world after strong economic sanctions nearly crippled them a few years prior. Latveria attempted to handle the influx of terrorism in Fulkasho and the drugs flowing from Val Verde on it's own with no international support. Their actions were sweeping and brutal boasting some of the most skilled and advanced military forces in the world. Many atrocities were committed relating to international war crimes, but the international community did not risk open war by charging any of those involved. Latveria turned their economy around and is now largely self sufficient. Restructuring was carried out under the leadership of Dr. Victor Von Doom, a prominent political leader who siezed power early in his rise. Von Doom transformed the country into a totalitarian state with little pushback from the people as he was seen as the hero who saved their country. Von Doom has not been seen publicly in over 5 years after several failed assasination attempts. The last was made by an agent from Plantasea who was put on trial and executed on Television for the world to see. Often considered an aggressor nation, the world has largely left Latveria alone in recent years in hopes of not provoking anything.

The north east is plagues by it's own problematic situations. Another secluded nation sits atop the continent in Tosul. A socialist country with a crippled economy that threatens stability to the world through constant provocation of it's neighboring countries. Tosul's people starve while they develop long range rockets to try and reach some of their most out spoken oponents in Erotema and the Deland Republic. Neighboring Spriznulo often finds itself in border disputes with Tosul, some times ending in small skirmishes in the mountainous region.

Turning westward, a piracy ring has formed in the northern sea based out of the Isle of Rahz. Government forces have struggled to try and keep the situation at bay but are losing the battle more and more every day. Last year a fleet of old war ships out of Bandaud that had been quasi-converted and used for humanitarian efforts were sailing to the islands off the coast of Deland and Tosul to provide relief to Tsunami victims. Enroute the vessels were attacked by pirates from the Isle of Rahz and the ships were siezed. The ships have since been converted back to military purposes and are being used to confront vessels coming within range of the Isle. The issue has yet to see any form of resolution by the international community. 

Further West, the country of Walara has been engaged an a long war with Priunulia in an attempt to retake control over the area after they broke away from Walara over 15 years ago. Walara has been supported in it's endeavor by it's close ally in Plighia but Priunulia has been getting aid in all forms from supporters in New Brickika and Erotema creating a small proxy war setting between all of these nations; though shots thus far have only been fired inside Priunulia. 

In the south, New Selussia and the Commonwealth of Souther Territories have found themselves fending off claims to territorial rights over the nearby islands with Plighia, Swintoc, and Fulkasho. 

With powder kegs spread throughout the world, one must question which one will go off first?

There are things on the map that are intentionally blank. Do not assume because something is blank that it belongs to one country or another. Consider these areas off limits until they are revealed. We will be updating things as we go.

  • 1 or 2 players per country?
  • The players will allowed to establish new alliances? If yes, more that 2?
  • Will you publish the players that will keep their countries, so the new players will choose from the free? 
  • Will be any backround for the countries besides the geographical details that are in the map?
  • Ι got more questions. But: Will you publish new set of rules so I must stop asking?
  • Can we have the map in better quality/size so to add cities and other details in our countries? Also there are details that are not clear (names, borders)

Looking the map, I saw that Alsarh appeared in 2 spots. D2 and F14. Is it a mistake or an overseas occupation?

This is a mistake and we all missed it. Thank you.

1. Any country that currently has 2 players will still have 2 players (provided they don't decide to change countries). Any new county or country with no current players will be restricted to just one at the beginning. 
2. Alliances are not a priority for round 2. We agreed as a staff that the alliances seriously hurt the game play. The game will primarily be focused on single player game play this time around. Alliances may come down the road, but not in the beginning.
3. We will do a roll call at some point for everyone to confirm they are still here and have the intent to continue.
4. Some of the newer countries will get a little write up, especially those that will not be playable in the beginning. 
5. More rules will come in time. 
6. Map will eventually be posted in the highest res available, this is just a preview. The borders are the bright lines you see all over the map. All of the names are clear, but some look a little smaller due to current resolution.

The map is quite great like this !

I have just a little remark : many borders are still strait lines and are not really following some natural borders, not that I am really concerned of it, and IRL some countries have such borders (but mainly made by colonialist countries when decolonisation occured after WW2), but respect of natural borders could be a plus !

And @TheBeeze an other remark then, directly concerning the Deland Republic : could the northern border of the Deland Republic include mountains and follow the highest peaks of those mountains, actually all the mountains are in Tosul territory, and I would really keep my specialised team of Hercynian Hunters in these mountains. Thanks !

Just because you don't own them doesn't mean you wont be fighting in them in the beginning. :thumbup:

@TheBeeze Anything going to happen with Isla Sorna south of Refnor?

Yes :wink: You'll have to wait and see.

So, except the geographic details that changed due the new map, the other details for the exist countries are valid?

If you want them to be. It will be up to each player to shape the country as they see fit based on the missions you are given and how you elaborate on them with side missions.

We haven't announced which countries will be playable yet.

I would ask that all members who intend to return for Phase 2 please post up here and state whether or not you will be keeping your current country. Existing players will get first crack at new countries.
