Basically, myself and the other starting players are in charge of a small, fledgling nation, that has emerged from the breaking up of the much-larger country of Klintanistan.
Set in the Inter-War years of the early C20th, Klintanistan is a completely fictitious location that Clint (the Games Master) has cleverly left none-specific in detail, so as to allow it to be anything to all players and readers alike. In fact, one of the clever design features of Clint's game is the lack of detailed specifics, and lack of maps, which allows freedom of imagination for all involved and a real ability for the game play to be only restricted by the player's imaginations.
But enough with all that, let us get down to business.
I am in control of my own little nation. I've even given it a name! Centralandesh. Chosen a couple of features that should populate it's bite-sized map, and given them all names - Though if my country becomes invaded, or I'm ejected from office, there's nothing stopping other player's altering these names once they're in charge.
So, I've a country to rule. I've decided I'm the President. Supposedly I'm a Socialist, but this being the mad-cap time frame of the Inter-War years that doesn't count for much.
The largest settlement is called Comchar, and it is situated on the banks of the Cama River. It once was connected to a rail network of a single track, but now Klintanistan is no more, the Railway Company has fled and the track has been vandalised and the parts taken for firewood and scrap. The only way people are able to get from Comchar to the nation's other large settlement, Khulpur Junction, is either by horse and cart or to walk there!
In the game each player's playing nations begins with Five Regions (we all know what each of us have).
Centralandesh has these Five Regions:
Meaning the economy of Centralandesh is dependant upon farming, and the wealth of the citizens unequally distributed (land owners being wealthy, and land workers being poor).
Other than all of that, my game position is free of specific details. I could go further, but at the moment I'm keeping it simple.
All that is left to do now is see how I, and everyone else, goes onward in-game.
Wish us all luck!
