New World Game

Postby Æxylis » 2011-04-30, 23:28

Okay, I came up with a really odd idea for a game. This game is fairly politically based and will do well with the whole "no english" thing. The only place where English is to be used here is in the neutral representations of worldwide decisions as the lingua franca for other lands. The idea is somewhat similar to a model UN in that people can come up with political discussions, elect ambassadors to represent their countries, and even propose individual sovereignties should they so choose (such as the idea of a scandiavianland as opposed to merely a germanicland). Then, when you know who are all in your country, you can indicate which country you're addressing with your messages and said messages will be meant for those in that country.

So here's how it works:
* There will be a set of lands represented by a common language family. The three primary lands will be Romanceland, Germanicland, and Slavland. For each land, there will be a common representative language that will be used for intercommunication between other members in the land. This language will be the most commonly used language between members of each land. So, for example, Germanicland may use German. This means that every member of Germanicland can use their own Germanic language to communicate with one another, but to communicate with the group as a whole, the main language, German, is to be used.
* Each land makes a list of choices given by any person as presented in English and added to the core dialog (the one directly following this one). Each member of the land discusses and votes with other members as to the different choices available (name of the land, representative language, and various political questions and whatnot).
* Each person can be a member of as many lands as he/she so desires, but can use only languages in that land.
* The members of each land, as well as the land's name, representative language, and other political decisions and actions under discussion will be listed under that group in the core dialog.
* New lands may become available if there are at least 3-5 members that speak a particular language family and are able to use a common representative language of that family.
* If you would like to discuss any topic for a group aside from its representative language you must do so in one of the languages of that group. Members listed as read-only may not vote on topics for a group unless they change their status to read/write for at least one of the languages in the group.
* You can discuss any topic you'd like in whatever language you have listed under read/write. Any translations/spoilers for it will be into that group's representative language, not English.

To join the game, indicate which land you would like to join, what languages you can use that are representative of that land, and which language you feel should be the main representative language of that land.

Je m'intéresserais tentativement (et irrégulièrement) à ce jeu ; je joindrais la terre romance, où je proposerais l'espagnol comme langue commune. Moi, j'écris français, espagnol, et un peu d'italien, et je lis français, espagnol, italien, et portugais.

"Romanceland"
En fait, je n'ai aucune idée. En général, créer des noms ainsi n'est pas facile pour moi. Je suggérerais peut-être quelque jeu de mots avec le mot « romance » (« Terre d'Amour », par exemple), mais ça me semble trop cliché.

Por Romanceland, devemos usar galego como a língua oficial. É moi neutro.

Mhm. As president of Swedojaponia, the first thing is to announce the official languages.

Våra officiella språk är båda japanska och svenska. Från och med nu måste alla viktiga saker diskuteras på japanska eller svenska.

Purely to up the presence of Irish outside of the Irish and Translations forums (and also because it may be beneficial to the new learners to read and use the language as much as possible), can I suggest Gaelland? (I was going to suggest 'Celtland', but there'd be no point - Brythonic and Gaelic languages aren't mutually intelligible in the slightest, although I know a few Gaelic speakers here also speak Welsh or Breton, so maybe they'd prefer a 'Celtland' to a separate 'Gaelland' and 'Brythonland'?).

What else... oh:

Gaelland - Irish*, Scottish Gaelic, Manx Gaelic (*representative language)
(Celtland - also include Welsh, Cornish and Breton?. Maybe Celtland would be an officially bilingual land with Welsh and Irish as the official representative languages?)

I'm not entirely sure what happens after the details of the land are settled.... just general chat?
The British Isles are awesome - I know, I live there - but Ireland is not a part of them. K thnx bai!

Inscris-moi à "romanceland", en outre, mes propositions:
- langue officielle: l'espagnol
- nom officiel: Empire de Romania/Empire of Romania (mot latin désignant l'ensemble des pays où une langue romane est parlée)
- devise: L'union fait la force.

Je sais lire et écrire le français et l'espagnol, en plus, je lis et comprends plus ou moins bien le portugais et l'italien.

Inscríbeme en "romanceland", además, mis proposiciones:
- lengua oficial: el español
- nombre oficial: Imperio de Romania (palabra latina que designa el conjunto de los países donde se habla un idioma románico)
- lema: La unión hace la fuerza.

Sé leer y escribir el francés y el español, además, leo y entiendo más o menos bien el portugués y el italiano.

Put me down for "romanceland", furthermore, here are my propositions:
- official language: Spanish
- official name: Empire of Romania (Latin word referring to the group of countries where a Romance language is spoken)
- motto: United we stand. (Not a literal translation, but sounds better.)

I can read and write French and Spanish, on top of that, I can read and more or less understand Portuguese and Italian.

You may chat about anything you'd like, but since we're split up into different countries, here's a few examples of simulations we may do, should you so desire:

* splitting up of a larger country into smaller countries in opposition to one another that decide to go to war
* deciding on an official stance in regards to anything, including individual parts of languages and whatnot
* countries may not necessarily split up over subfamilies, you may decide that you like one thing that's present in a group of languages better than another... for example the romanceland group may have some members that decide they like the use of the cedilla in romance languages and some members that don't... these groups may then decide to branch off and create countries where the languages are the same but the orthographies are different

really, you may discuss anything, but the idea is that it should be somewhat like a political simulation in the sense that people group together based on certain ideals and organize themselves in a particular way... but if you just want to discuss random things, that's okay too

also, I've updated the core dialog with all the changes stated... please look over the member lists to make sure I've input your selected read and write languages correctly... if not, please inform me of any necessary changes
