There will always be those pesky events that will somehow manage to literally flip the table and shoot the other players.
I'd be interested. I may not have a good track record, but I have been here off and on for just over two years.
Seen the region go through a lot.
I guess it really doesn't matter now with the Olympics going on.
*A large amount of Imperial Russian land and air forces break through the lightly defended Republic side of the Imperial-Republic DMZ, overwhelming the defending forces and traveling for about 11 miles into the Republic territory, bombing cities and towns beyond their new holding line, before the second line of defense slows it to a complete halt with light to moderate civilian casualties for the Russian Republic and military deaths between the two nations unable to be calculated.
Naval forces have engaged combat, firing off their main batteries in volleys at a time, ripping apart each other. Russian Imperial Naval forces have reported to breach several points of held by light Republic naval defense but still being dealt with by coastal forts armed with large, long range artillery cannons. They have ordered a few dozen infantry sea to land invasion craft to beach on several areas along the Republic coast as a way to invade their cities and towns behind lines. Russian Republic Civil Defense Forces do their best to hold off the invading forces.*
We take our flying islands for granted. The Rift is seen as a norm, and it's influence grows only stronger. But what if that were suddenly not the case? What if the Rift, that mysterious force that holds many continents in the sky, were to disappear? Surely all sorts of disasters. The world as we know it would be destroyed.
But would you be able to tough out what follows? How would you thrive, fight, and die, in this apocalypse? Would you survive the Fallen World?

---Russian Republic Defense Bunker #202---
*The numerous crew of the bunker continue their operations as usual when it comes to an invading force approaching it.*
Bunker Commander: Do not waiver against this act of aggression!
*The commander then rushes to a corner of the bunker gun slits, raises his trusted Mosin-Nagant M-59 and looks down the site to point it at a slowly advancing Russian Imperial Trooper and finally pulls the trigger. The rifle cracks as the bullet rips through the abdomen of the invading trooper, who tumbles to the ground in agonizing pain.*
Bunker Artillery Gunner: T-85 approaching and in range, preparing to fire.
*The long range artillery gun barrel slowly turns to the tank that fires before they can, hitting the side of the bunker instead.*
Bunker Commander: Take him down!
*The artillery gun fires, its round ripping through the tank's frontal armor. It explodes, killing the entire tank crew save for the tank commander who was standing through the hatch on the top of the tank, who is now just a halved body from the stomach upward that is laying dead in the field. Behind the destroyed tank comes a pack of them, the first one fires a shell at the bunker. It hits and destroys the artillery gun, killing the gunner and assistant gunner.*
Bunker Commander: Damn it! Arty is down! Grab the RPGs!
*Two regular Republic soldiers run into a back room and return with their RPG-7s along with their backpacks full of rockets. The two continuously fire their rockets, hitting tank and enemy soldier alike until one is hit and killed by a Imperial Russian sniper. A third regular soldier takes cover behind the concrete interior, taking glances now and then to locate the sniper only to see the glare coming from a scope in a shrub a mile away. Pointing at him for the remaining Republic Rocketeer.*
Regular Soldier #3: I see the sniper!
*The sniper, finding he has been discovered, tries to get out of the shrub and starts to run off but is interrupted by the rocket. The explosion rips off his right leg and sends him flying with shrapnel lodged into his chest-region organs. The commander of the defense bunker grabs his portable radio.*
Bunker Commander: Republic Command! We need reinforcements as soon as you can send them!
Republic Command: Bunker #202 Commander Pyotr Romanov, we have limited men as we speak due to enemies landing behind the line. Fortunately we still have Able Company, most of them have been ordered to reinforce any defenses engaging at this moment while keeping some back to ensure none of these defenses reporting back to be active is not a ruse by the Imperial Russian aggressors. Good luck out there.
Commander Pyotr: Copy that Command. For the Republic.
*He puts away the portable radio and continues to fight off the invading forces.*
Revolution has swept across Alossa resulting in the Emperor being forced into exile and a new Capitalist government forming. Until I am able to classify myself as a republic from addressing issues my nation description will still say dictatorship for now until i can change it which will probably take a while.
*Looks at Alossa's motto*
Well, this just got complicated.
Doesn't really matter what the category says unless you want it to be so NS-wise, that and I'm pretty sure there is no Republic category.
Didn't know there was a Tyranny By Majority category...of course that is just another way of saying Direct Democracy.
