Actually, I'd feel tempted to have a crack at running this, if trainman1432 or anyone else is OK with that. I have experience running forum games on other forums, in case anyone needs a bit of extra reassurance, so to speak. Would other people be happy with that?

I think we should start the game in 1800, with the same timescale as the original game (1 day = 3 years until 1900, 1 day = 1 year afterwards). I've found the map used in that and used it, with the same key and stuff. Let's keep it simple. :)

Regardless, I shall start the game, by establishing the country of The Germanic Reich, between the Oder and Elbe rivers, which was born from the ashes of the previous kingdoms of the region. The great city Berlin has been made capital, with several other cities founded as well.

MAP UNLOCKED

If you want to add your own country, add it to this map and type it's name in the column at the top left, in the colour you chose. Also, be realistic for the time period, there isn't gonna be any airplanes or nuclear power stations in 1800. :P

MAP UNLOCK

The United Germanic Reich expands into the valleys of the Rhine and the Danube, with several other cities rising, to help create a strong industrial base. We have opened another port at Wilhelmshaven, to go alongside our one at Rostock.

Some stats about the UGR:
Capital: Berlin
Other significant towns: Hamburg, Frankfurt, Köln, Stettin
Currency: Reichsmark (RM)
Population: ~5 million
Language: German

We wish to trade with the Eastern Balkanic Union. Our leader, Frederick William II, is willing to head to Constantinople to negotiate a trade deal to aid both nations.

The Eastern Balkanic Union expands in new territories: Thessaloniki, Silistra are new significant towns, and experimental petroleum extraction has begun, with usage in lighting at this time. With the new acquisitions the population is now at ~650 000 people.

The trade offer from the United Germanic Reich is accepted, with conditions to be decided.

The Great Kingdom Of Scandinavia is a northern power player of Europe, centered around Baltic Sea but also stretching all the way to Atlantic. Population, infrastructure and commerce of kingdom is centered in area from Skåne to Stockholm with Oslo being the major year-round Atlantic port. While the kingdom inhabits large areas on other side of Gulf Of Bothnia, it is largely uncivilized wilderness lagging behind the heartlands of kingdom in technology, population and wealth. Official language of kingdom is naturally Swedish but some areas have secondary languages like Finnish and Norse. Capital city containing King Gustav IV's throne is Stockholm. Besides Southern Sweden, region of Österbotten is breadbasket of region providing wheat to feed the cities of south. Atlantic coast provides lots of fish and mountains in northern part of kingdom contain ore deposits.

Just for reference, here are the rules:
1) STARTUP AND GENERAL RULES
1) One country per person
2) Size: Countries must initially not be larger than the US (10 mln sq km). Size on earth must be kept smaller than 18 mln sq km and may be vetoed (see Rule 3.1)
3) Slight terraforming is permitted, but no moving of large landmasses like continents
4) Technology may be introduced at approximately the appropriate time according to the in-game time rate and year. Development of advanced technology (e.g. nuclear tech, rockets, aircraft carriers etc) must be announced before it is completed. Technologies that are too early for the timeframe or implausible may be vetoed (see Rule 3.1).

2) WARS AND SECESSIONS
1) Wars are to be fought with reasonable forces. Some aspects may be vetoed (see Rule 3.1) if necessary. During armed conflict a player may not report casualties or damages done to the other party, the other party must respond to attacks in a way that is considered realistic.
2) Nukes may not be overused and must have a blast radius of less than 0.5 miles. Abuse of this rule can be vetoed (see Rule 3.1).
3) Seceding is permitted, only if the "leader/owner" of a country decides it. The new territory must merge with another country or become a new, separate country administered by someone else.

3) ADMINISTRATIVE RULES
1) Veto Power: If a player disagrees with another's action, they may veto the action. At least two players are needed for the veto to succeed and the action to be taken back. Moderator's word is supreme to all other players, EXCEPT when the moderator is alone in his/her position. If this is the case, the moderator will be overridden (to prevent abuse).
2) Rule Changing: After these initial rules are agreed upon, a majority vote is required to change a rule. A game moderator counts as two votes.
3) Restarting: A 4:1 consensus is required to restart. Game mods count as two votes.

The Reich would like to establish trading links with the Scandinavian Kingdom.

The Reich has expanded eastwards into Silesia and Prussia - the cities of Breslau and Posen, as well as the ports of Danzig and Königsberg, being set up for trade and for civilians. We have also expanded south into Bavaria, with the city of Munich popping up, as well as taking the rest of Schleswig-Holstein in the north. The population has gone up to roughly 10 million. The military of the Reich - the Wehrmacht - has been formed, with the army - the Heer - having around 500,000 soldiers, and the navy - the Kriegsmarine, having around 500 ships so far.

MAP UNLOCKED

The Reich has further expanded, taking the Danish Peninsula and islands, and forming its agricultural sector, with some farms, and building industry across the lands. The Wehrmacht has expanded to 1,000,000 soldiers in the Heer, and with 1,200 ships now in the Kriegsmarine. The Kaiser is willing to further expand into the Netherlands, provided there isn't resistance from Dutch peasants, and start colonising lands further afield than Europe.

MAP UNLOCKED

The Eastern Balkanic Union is expanding towards new places: Budapest, Szeged, Kecskemet, Debrecen, Oradea, Timisoara, Novi Sad, Belgrade, Adapazari, Bursa, Canakkale and Balikesir. Its population has increased a lot, being now ~ 2 200 000 people.

The king Mustafa V is proposing the leadership of the United Germanic Reich a program where the water routes between our countries will be established, and also research into railway building will be conducted. Some is already in progress, but with external help it will give useful results much faster.

What would you like to trade? We have a fairly large industrial base, and can send raw materials extracted from your mines to our factories. We shall thus convert them into processed goods and send some back to you, with our trademark German engineering used to manufacture them giving you and your citizens an assurance of quality and durability.

We are also willing to send the Wehrmacht to help train your army up and give them some equipment.

Yeah, that would be OK. In exchange for your high quality manufacturing, the Eastern Balkanic Union will give some fresh crops. Your citizens will absolutely love them. Also, we will give you some petrol, for lighting purposes (so far). Our research in petrol exploration resulted in an increased production at our sites. Research like that will eventually lead to a sustainable railway network.

The United Germanic Reich agrees to this deal, and we shall send our barges down the Danube to collect the goods. We believe both the agriculture and the oil will be of great use to our citizens. The oil also may or may not be useful in a secret research project. :P

That is fine - however we are keeping the offer on the table should you wish to take it up.

The Reich has initiated a further recruitment drive in the Wehrmacht - we have approximately 1,200,000 men in the Heer now, and an extra 100 ships are in the Kriegsmarine. We want to develop the world's most powerful army, and will keep on doing that.

The Eastern Balkanic Union, with help from the Reich has successfully finalized its railway prototype. And it was a great success, connecting the Thessaloniki factory with the Kavala's port and mine, and providing it a more efficient way of acquiring raw materials and distributing its resulting products. A steam train with a maximum speed of 15 km/h is used, with coal from the country's mines being used. To celebrate this great achievement, the northeastern Egypt was acquired as a colony. Some petrol-rich soil was discovered, and exploration started there. A shipping petrolier will be developed for transporting the oil to the mainland. The deal with the Reich will continue, this time for building a passenger train line upon the preexisting railway.
