A Toarobot18 Game

ACCEPTING PLAYERS NOW AS ALWAYS! POST TO JOIN!

PLUS: Recruit a player - 40 widgets!

BZRepublic is a strategy game in which players attempt to achieve their assigned goals through the various actions available to them. It is a bit of an experiment for me, I have drafted various different but similar games through the years I've been on BZPower but never created one until now. I hope you enjoy it, and please give it a try.BZRepublic is set in BZ Nui, an Bionicle city governed by a president, a senate, and a judge, protected by police and military members, and home to businessmatoran who trade their wares.

STANDARD RULES

If you're interested in joining, this all you need to get started. Also check out the "BUSINESS" section of the Full Rules, which you can find in post no. 6 in this topic, since you'll start as a Businessmatoran. The rest of the Full Rules are useful for reference and pertain to particular positions, but are unnecessary for new players to read.1. You start with 200 widgets and 10 happiness. Happiness can go up and down and affects game performance. You can buy items with widgets and transfer widgets and items to other citizens or the National Bank.2. You can attempt theft of any items or amount of widgets from any source, or attempt murder. The likelyhood of success depends on the weapons you have and those of your target, and your happiness. However, you might be witnessed doing the crime.3. You are PMed a secret goal to accomplish in BZRepublic. You can reveal yours, but no screen shots. These goals are:

FORTUNE SEEKER: get widgets/items.

VIRTUOUS CITIZEN: minimize city deaths and crimes and increase city happiness.

HARD WORKER:

if president/senator: same as Virtous Citizen.

if businessmatoran: same as Fortune Seeker.

if judge: make fair rulings.

if military: do well in battle and obey the military leader (if not the leader).

if policematoran: arrest as many citizens who are successfully convicted as possible.

POWER SEEKER: exert as much control over as many citizens as possible.

SUBVERTER: maximize city unhappiness.

CONSPIRATOR: maximize city deaths.

4. If you die you can rejoin in a week.5. Position overviews:

BUSINESSMATORAN: This is what you are if you just joined. You can make businesses, research, and sell stuff. See your Full Rules section.

MILITARY: Attacks foreign countries and defends BZ Nui.

SENATE: Creates and passes laws.

PRESIDENT: Passes and vetoes laws, appoints various positions.

POLICEMATORAN: Charge citizens with crimes and arrest them.

JUDGE: Decides if citizens are guilty of crimes.

6. No roleplaying! Each position has certain actions it can perform, such as creating a business, arresting a citizen, creating a law. Perform them, but don't make it a story: think of this like a variation on a Mafia game, and you'll get the right idea.Player list:1.

PASSED LEGISLATION OF THE SENATE OF BZ NUII. Gun Control BillWeapon business owners may carry as many guns as they like. Henceforth, no other citizen is allowed more than two personal weapons. If any other citizen has more than three weapons, they will be subject to a 100 widget fine. If they are found with an illegal number of weapons a second time, they will be imprisoned for a week.Any weapons confiscated will be stored in a separate bank stored in a Gun Bank, separate from the National Bank, controlled by the military leader. In case of an attack, or in case of dire need by the Army or Police, the guns will be divided equally and temporarily amongst the Army and Police.

To liven things up here, although we do not have 18 players yet, I will allow elections for president to begin. I'll announce when to start casting votes. That will probably be in a day or two. For now, let the campaigns begin!I encourage anyone interested in the role of president to make a campaign post listing goals and/or qualifications.

Sorry folks for the late goal PMs, I've been rather busy lately but things are clearing up. Thanks for joining, and get your friends. The recruiter bonus is still active. We've got 12 now, we're not far away.Presidential elections should start. Right now the only candidates are Burnmad and King Joe. If you would also like to run this first election, please try to announce that intention within the next day. Zakaro, as you are a new member and have not made enough posts to use the message system, I can't send you your BZRepublic Goal yet.

I'm all for lower taxes, but if they're too low, then we have problems. I would also like to hear how you will extract this tax, and what exactly will be taxed? Income? Will it be a sales tax? Or a tax on certain items?

[ELECTION RESULTS]Since all votes must be cast within 48 hours, the election is now officially over. We have 12 players in the game so far and only 3 voted, although 2 others were active during elections and chose not to do so. To try and boost activity a bit, I will be PMing everybody who joined and reminding them that the election process has started and to visit the topic.Burnmad: Toa of Emoticons should announce his five choices for military members as soon as possible. After he does so, feel free to post your announcement on whether or not you wish to run for government.Zakaro, I'll send you your BZRepublic Goal PM shortly. Finally, if you have any friends from other sections of BZPower who you wouldn't mind recruiting, the recruiter bonus of 40 widgets is still active. Now is the best time for new players to join in, otherwise they will have no opportunity to run for government until the next cycle.

edit: OK, um... I'm pretty sure you can't choose between income and sales tax, (though I might be wrong) but if you you can, what would you guys find to be an acceptable tax amount for income and sales, while still holding me to my promise of cheap taxes? And also, what would be an acceptable price below which there are no sales taxes and an acceptable sales tax cap?

If what you guys decide is agreeable, then I will make it official.

As this is something I can do now... I want to run for government. Because I can. Also because I want to someday simultaneously make everyone happy and destroy everything.No comment on that I missed the voting.

The military having been chosen, please say so in the next 48 hours if you wish to run for government (as Impulse so kindly demonstrated). I have designated citizens' positions in the player list.As far as taxes go, you can go about making/enforcing/collecting them however you want, but there is no reason you shouldn't be able to figure out a way to institute an income or a sales tax should you see fit.
