Random events proposal

Postby Xah » Mon Feb 15, 2016 9:01 am

I've made a table containing some random events that may afflict a nation. Once or twice a week I'll use River in the chatroom to roll a dice and select an event. I'll then, using the same technique, select a nation. If the nation selected wishes to, they can use that event as a jumping point for some RP or even just a news event. If anyone has any more suggestions, put them below.

Now, some events aren't applicable to some nations, due to the climate, or location, or whatever, so if you want to be a part of this, post below with the following information:

Code: Select all

a) Nation name:
b) Desired frequency of events:
c) Any events you feel are inapplicable to your nation (give reasons please):


Event list:
  1. Flooding - A major incident involving water being where it shouldn't be
  2. Hurricane - Or any other high-speed wind related weather event (eg tornados, winter storms, sandstorm)
  3. Earthquake - Seismic event, can be offshore and cause Tsunami
  4. Riot - Civil disobedience on a large scale.
  5. Chemical leak - Scale is up to the nation involved, as is the specific chemical
  6. Nuclear meltdown/leak - Radioactive hazard or varying types
  7. Asteroid / Space debris - It fell from the sky and caused a lot of damage
  8. Volcano - If your area isn't in the proper zone, it still might affect travel, or you had researchers elsewhere
  9. Drought - Lack of potable water. Might even be a failure of desalination or filtration systems
  10. Heat wave - Higher that usual temperatures. Causes trouble with infrastructure too
  11. Wildfire - Uncontrolled fires, can be natural or man-made
  12. Solar flare - It is possible such events are localised, causes disruption to most unprotected electronic systems
  13. Epidemic - Outbreak of a disease, doesn't have to be lethal
  14. Network failure - A scourge of all modern nations. Was it a virus? Hackers? Or just a 404 error?
  15. Domestic terrorism - Everyone has dissidents, what if they got hold of something deadly?
  16. Structure collapse - Accidents happen, is someone to blame?
  17. Power outage - Just like networks, a problem for modern nations
  18. Major transport accident - Planes, trains or automobiles. Human error or not
  19. Political incident - Who's sleeping with what? The vote was rigged? They took how much for a bribe?

a) The Imperial Matriarchy of Qora
b) Weekly sounds fun
c) N/A

I'd like to propose the random events;
Famine - Either due to disease, locust swarms, or a bad season you have a lack of food and people are starving.
Murder - Someone got murdered. Could be someone important or... not that important. Could this be a civil war? A coup?
Pirates - Pirates are disrupting your international trade with naval ships, interceptor aircraft, or recording movies in the theater and selling them for quick cash. Whatchya gonna do about it?
Just your average friendly neighborhood Xeno that dropped out from the skies that happened to have displaced a technologically focused Imperialist Nationstate.

Well we're just shy and scared in this place. We're just fish out of water from the cosmos. You can see the trip has left us tired and drained so how about you be a pal and give us your Industrial Capacity? We can give you many shiny rocks. You may know them as "Gems" and "Transition Metals."

a) Væbnede Republikken Sverinovo
b) Weekly is probably best, monthly is too long, daily is too much
c) N/A

a) Nation name: The Cynosure Temple
b) Desired frequency of events: Weekly across all nations. If you're rolling per nation though, I'd prefer monthly.
c) Any events you feel are inapplicable to your nation (give reasons please): Nuclear meltdown/leak (we don't use nuclear power; all our nuclear plants were shut down)

a) Nation name: The Draco Aeternum
b) Desired frequency of events: Weekly
c) Any events you feel are inapplicable to your nation (give reasons please):
8. Volcano is not applicable because the Aeternum does not have any volcanoes. Could this perhaps be substituted for "Major Sandstorm" if rolled?

This will be being restarted, with a greater emphasis on me, as your Roleplay Councillor, instigating the thread that the event happens in. As usual, it's consentual and the event will be planned beforehand with the nation randomly chosen. An event will happen every other week.

To ensure the proper running of such things, please indicate below if you are willing to take part in this.

Cheers
