  1. New management. We've definitely had coups, but the government is stable right now This is a spiritual successor community.
  2. Also, I am not affiliated in the management or running of this group. I'm not staff there, just a player that's been absorbed in roleplay for months in it.
  3. Oh, I also left out: The Military You can join the military! There's a large ranking structure and you can get promoted up through the ranks! You will be involved in planning the nation's military strategy leading up to war and partaking in roleplay events involving ship combat and fleet battles. The Research Foundation Write research papers and vote on the research selected in the Stellaris game as a scientist in the Research Foundation! Overseen by an Ethics Committee and Research Director - and divided into four divisions of science, there is LOTS of room for creativity and advancement in this section of the executive government.
  4. The year is 2383. Our nation is successful, and has survived many civil wars and conflicts with neighboring empires. Our longest reigning King has just died and the Universal Monarchist Party has swept into power for the first time - leading to a revitalized effort to lead the Commonwealth to glory. The Judiciary is beginning to falter, having their Chief Justice and Associate Justice resign to seek other jobs, leaving a singular inexperienced Justice on the bench managing the entire Court. A terrorist has just been released from prison (by me, the Director of Prisons), as their right to a speedy trial was activated when they were held past 74 hours without a trial. Does this all sound like fun? It's called Discord Plays Stellaris, and we're a community that engages in a discord-based political/government simulator that actively affects a Stellaris game that is hosted weekly to progress. There are bots integrated into the server to facilitate roleplay including political power points, aging and death of characters, and events. There are many ways to get involved, so let me explain the branches and other groups you can join and some opportunities in them. The Executive The Executive is led by the Prime Minister, who is elected every two weeks from the nobility of the nation. They then appointed their Ministers and Executive Agency Heads. The Executive has many different Ministries and some positions are still unfilled if this is something you're interested in! Positions (some taken, some not) range from: - Minister of the Interior - Minister of the Foreign Office - Minister of Agriculture - Minister of Defense - Minister of Welfare - Minister of the Treasury - Minister of Development - Director of the Directorate of Commonwealth Security - Director of the Directorate of Commonwealth Communications Security - Director of Prisons - Attorney General - Solicitor General - Crown Prosecutor - Child Welfare Commissioner The Legislature The legislature is overseen by the Chancellor whom chairs the meetings of the 'General Assembly', which is the primary legislative body of the nation. This legislature passes a majority of our legal codes and laws and is a great first stop for people looking to get involved. You can be a representative and draft your own bills, rally support for them in the form of sponsors and then have them voted on by the Assembly! (doing this gets you political power points too!) If you're particularly daring, you can ask to become appointed Vice-Chancellor or even run for Chancellor when an election happens - the Chancellor handles the docket (the official list of matters to be discussed at the daily meeting) and maintains order during the assembly. They also post bills with the required sponsors to a vote. The Judiciary The Judiciary was my lovechild for the longest time. It is made up of the Supreme Court, the General Commonwealth Court and the Independent Commission Against Corruption. The Supreme Court handles all cases of constitutional interpretation and is the final court of appeal for cases originating in the lower General Court. The Independent Commission Against Corruption is an arms-length law enforcement body with a LOT of power and access to almost any information they want in the government. I was once the Chief Justice and helped manage ICAC, here is a report I made in that time: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1eDCoPohjJ05ARDkf_3qIZiQ-rWDmJb3xC-d4encf1vE/edit?usp=sharing In the Judiciary you can be a Justice of the Supreme Court, a Judge of the lower General Court, a defense attorney or even an Agent of ICAC. Those looking for advancement could easily find themselves taking the Deputy Commissioner position that is currently open! The Clergy Within the game and roleplay, a majority of the population worships a God called 'Aether', and the religion has a strong focus on machine-worship. This religion is led from a holy city and by Council of Paragons and the High Paragon of Aeacus (former capital of the nation and a holy planet). The Clergy's Paragons (essentially bishops/cardinals) are very influential and powerful within the nation as they get automatic seats on the penultimate executive/legislative body known as the Grand Council. DCS/DCCD The DCS and DCCD are the domestic and foreign intelligence agencies respectively, and also enforce the law as a sidejob. They are incredibly clandestine and the former Director of the DCCD who held the post for a long time attempted to use his position to assassinate the King! You can become a DCS/DCCD Agent by contacting their Director who is currently one individual bestowed with both directorships. If you have anymore questions, just contact me on discord (XanderDox#2835) or JOIN THE GAME HERE https://discord.gg/Zj2FWyU It's honestly super fun and if you love politics and government and creating roleplay documents this game is for you!
  5. [b]BYOND Key:[/b] XanderDox [b]Staff BYOND Key:[/b] queenofyugoslavia [b]Game ID:[/b] I don't remember the GameID, but here is when the warning was applied which was during the round: 2018-12-06 02:22:29 [b]Reason for complaint:[/b] Misapplying a warning [b]Evidence/logs/etc:[/b] Warning is as follows: "Please remember that while attacking security as a antag to avoid being arrested is valid, going as far as mid conversation with no threat and killing them and decapping them is far over whats allowed escalation wise. Please review the rules on escalation [b]Additional remarks:[/b] The reason I am contesting this warning is because the situation was fair. I was a Dominian Priestess traitor, I was going to have an anti-synth gimmick because Dominians hate synths even when they aren't antags. Here's where everything went wrong. Random bluespace crate spawned in behind my office - I thought oh cool, let's see whats in it (half the server rushes for these, it's a common thing). I found a posibrain and I was like oh cool, so I took it and two other things that were non-contraband and I handed the crate over to security. Mind you, the CRATE IS NOT OWNED BY NANOTRASEN. The announcements clearly say it's an unregistered teleportation and that 'crew' should investigate it. So, I activated the posibrain which became alive as a player - I then told them they were a soulless husk of a non-being and cremated them (the player thought this was funny in LOOC). Security then filed a warrant on me for 'destroying valuable station property' and 'detroying/altering a synthetic without authorization'. I found this out because I was passing out in the hall from a random even cloud of pepperspray. Officer Edward Sholl walked up to me, and tried showing me the warrant projector while I was literally passing out and stuttering. Finally, I stopped passing out but I was still walking slow from the pain - I asked him if I could see the warrant so he showed it to me again. At this point, I HAD to act fast. I had an energy sword, shuriken, four EMP grenades, and a chamelon project on me. ALL of my crystals went towards this stuff and literally every inventory space I had on me was occupied by a traitor item. I was FUCKED if this officer brought me to the brig. So, I had to kill him. If I had been taken to the brig, I'd be in a confined space (processing), where I would be searched by a warden armed even better than normal officers - and the AI would have a much easier time locking me down until more officers could arrive. I told the officer "Well.... I can't really get arrested right now" (which QoY did NOT find in her investigation, and blatantly lies about in the warning - this was a clear indication I was about to resist). After I said this, I drew my energy sword and activated it, I then hit the officer three times, and his head flew off while he was still standing. I did not sit there and murderize him while he was on the floor, his head flew off because the speed of my attacks against his unprotected head caused his limb-separation code to activate. Doc (admin) tells me that this is not what Queen told him in msay when they were asking for advice on my ahelp, which would imply Queen did not investigate properly as she never asked me if I attacked him on the floor or not - and that she lied to an Admin about a player to get an answer they wanted. To me, it was either: 1. Kill the Officer, and run - meaning I would still have opporunitites to interact with crew and pursue my gimmick, OR: 2. Don't kill the Officer, get arrested and permabrigged after all my gear is found. OR: 3. Try to run, but not have any access anywhere because I'm a Chaplain and then get gloriously batonned, and stunned down and then immediately searched and permabrigged. So, I killed him. Now, QueenofYugoSlavia also accused me in bwoinks of 'removing him from the round', but this simply isn't true. A head reattachment surgery can be done in around 30 seconds by a competent surgeon player and a body can be cloned straight after that. The head was stolen by a DIFFERENT traitor, who did NOT tell me before they gibbed it in the kitchen gibber that they had stolen it or were planning on destroying it. I do not support the destruction of the head OOCly, nor did I have any IC or OOC part in destroying it. I was only informed after. This is not the first time I have had issues with QueenofYugoslavia. They always bwoink me in the middle of active conflict that usually leads to me being distracted and then captured. They rarely know the mechanics of the game (which is troublesome when they're relevant to an investigation like claiming decapping stops a body from being cloned permanently). Overall, I would like this warning removed and some sort of training to occur. P.S. sorry if this looks ugly, the new forums are weird.
  6. No idea when, but I've been told it was a Burger PR and I indeed tested it out and tea was not healing the toxins damage.
  7. This was implemented despite the dismissal. Might as well throw it in completed projects @Arrow768

    Aboshehab Letter of Resignation

    I'm very sad to see you go. You were by far one of my favourite admins.

    The Vault is a meme and has to be improved.

    This sounds like an icly issue. I can't reasonably stop this sort of thing from occurring without just making the vault a room without doors. CCIA have already said that crew are allowed to use vault equipment if the Captain says so.

    Seedless K'ois for the Chef

    Make a K'ois Tofu that is created by mixing universal enzyme and filtered k'ois, use K'ois Tofu where you would traditionally use a K'ois fruit. Problem solved.

    Player Complaint- Kaedwuff

    I don't have an issue with how Kaed converted me at this time anymore - as it was handled by staff as they saw fit and I am not filing a staff complaint to contest their decisions. I can confirm, as seen in screenshots, I was ordered as a thrall to make an announcement about intruders and swipe for code red - I was never told why we were doing this from an IC standpoint if there was any IC reasoning for it.
  12. EFTPOS is not even used by Cargo anymore. Plz get learnt before you dismiss threads.
  13. i120 - Misuse of Department Funding To allow a purchase of recreational or irrelevant items with department funds without the approval of a relevant head of staff to go through. Punishable with a fine of up to 5 times the bought item's value, demotion/suspension on repeated offense. By irrelevant items, it's meant "literally anything not in the tab with the same name as your department". It doesn't mean, though, that the charge will always be applied - I imagine, for example, that Research ordering some minor items from the Medical tab is reasonable. Okay I'm on board if this regulation gets added.
  14. Also if a Cargo Tech charges my department without asking me and it's not something worth charging to my account - I'm either having them arrested for theft or neglect of duty. There will need to be clear rules (maybe on a poster in cargo or on the noticeboard) about when something can be charged to a department account without that Head's permission.
  15. No. Talking with your Heads of Staff and the Head of Personnel about getting the money increases roleplay interactions.
