[b]GRP Proposal: 002 051018. Rules Regarding Expansion in RP.[/b] This proposal is intended to create rules in regards to territorial expansion in RP, in an effort to ensure that no future conflicts occur and to keep the RP fair.[hr] [b]• Expansion Rules.[/b] 1. - Nations may only colonize up to [b]two real life nations[/b]. 2. - Colonies may only be on [b]one other continent[/b]. (Example: Nation [Tropico] is located in Europe and wants a colony in Africa, they must not colonize outside of Africa.) 3. - In order to expand into uncharted space, and establish colonies, you must first state where you are expanding to and then confirm that no one currently claims that territory. 4. - An expansion RP can only take 1 real life nation at a time. 5. - [b]Be realistic[/b] you cannot just take an unclaimed territory without any resistance. 6. - After you establish a colony/colonies, you must wait at least a week before you can expand again. 7. - Colonies take time to develop, no instant cities, bases or friendly governments. 8. - Expansion takes multiple posts that aren't just one-liners. 9. - [b]The most important rule, period![/b] If a new nation to OEU wishes to claim a map spot on your colony you [b]must[/b] let that nation take the territory. There is nothing worse than a new nation joining OEU and leaving because the were told that territory [Example: Iran] is a colony and can't be taken.[hr] [b]• Punishments for rule violations.[/b] 1. - If a nation violates rules 1-8 their RP shall be considered null and void. 2. - If a nation violates rule 9 they will be subject to having their map spot terminated for a length of time determined by the RP manager.
