[anchor=gettingstarted][/anchor][box][center][url=#gettingstarted][size=170][font=palatino][i][color=#0f5b2a]Getting Started[/color][/i][/font][/size][/url][/center][hr]

The following are encouraged as a good way to get started, particularly for new players! 

A couple recommendations: 

1. Introduce yourself on the [url=/region=ridgefield#rmb]Regional Message Board[/url]. This will help you get to know your neighbors.

2. Join the [url=/page=un]World Assembly[/url]. This is our only requirement, and it is a very easy process.

3. Check out our [url=]Discord server[/url]. This is by no means mandatory, but it opens the gates to interaction with nations in other regions.

4. Read all about what Ridgefield and the Meritocratic League is [url=]here[/url]!

Enjoy your stay, and please do not hesitate to ask questions!

Still wondering what this game has to offer? You are in luck! NS is a vast, complicated world, and you can play for years before you even break the surface. Here are a few resources to help you find something that interests you.

[u]FAQ:[/u] The official game FAQ can be found [url=/page=faq]here[/url], and a more comprehensive version is maintained on the Technical subforum [url=]here[/url].

[u]Roleplay:[/u] On NS, roleplay (commonly known as RP) is text-based, and consists of players writing collaborative stories that bring their nations (or people within their nations) to life. It usually takes place on the NS forums, player-created offsite forums, or region RMBs. 
RP Guide:
RP Questions:
Advice for New Players:

[u]Gameplay:[/u] The term "gameplay" (commonly known as GP) encompasses a number of things. It includes the "issues game," where players answer issues to build their nations in a certain way and compete on World Census reports; the "invasion game" (commonly known as raiding and defense, or R/D); and regional politics. 
NS Issues:
R/D Guide:
Region Building:

[u]Real-world debate:[/u] This is mostly self-explanatory, and takes place in the General subforum (commonly known as NSG), or on regions' offsite forums and RMBs.
First Stop for NSG:

[u]World Assembly:[/u] The World Assembly (commonly known as the WA) is a mixture of RP and GP. It is the world's only international legislative body, similar to the real-world United Nations. Many players like to spend time writing their own WA resolutions or discussing proposals written by others. This takes place in the General Assembly and Security Council subforums. If this sounds interesting to you, it is highly recommended that you begin there, by asking questions and reading other players' work.

Security Council Guide:

[u]Something is missing...[/u] So, you may ask, how does one declare war? What about setting up alliances, or trading? NS does not include functions for war or trade, but that should be no obstacle to you! If you have a large enough group, you may attack another region, which is called "raiding" (see "Gameplay" in the section above this). You can also begin an RP war with another player ([url=]complete guide here[/url]). Trade is RPed on NS, so the best place to go is the GE&T subforum ([url=]Help Desk thread[/url]). Alliances are a little more complicated, because they can take so many forms. Again, there is no built-in function for alliances, although embassies can be established between regions, and are sometimes used to signify formal agreements. In general, alliances between nations are RPed. Alliances between regions, on the other hand, are most often political gameplay agreements.
