Are you confused about all the categories, forums and threads you see? Hopefully you will be a lot wiser after reading this and able to find your way around. So let's get started.
Cyber Nations Gameplay and Roleplay
Open World RP
The Open World Forum is the main, out-of-character (OOC)1 forum for discussion of game politics, current events, alliance statistics, and general social discussion that pertains directly to the game of Cyber Nations. Discussion of game mechanics should be directed to the Community Structure forums. OOC discussion not directly pertaining to the game should be directed to The Water Cooler. Alliance recruitment topics, trade circle requests, and technology / donation sales / purchases go in the Open Alliance and Team Forum and its subforums.
1 For definitions of out-of-character and in-character (OOC/IC) please see the RP forum guidelines.
This forum is for In-Character announcements and discussions of world politics as pertaining to alliances. Treaty announcements, declarations of war, alliance policy discussions, ultimatums, general inter-alliance mingling -- it all goes here!
This is an In-Character forum. World Affairs is the place to discuss the drama and intrigue of Cyber Nations politics. As long as it's related to alliance-driven politics, it's in-character and it's not an Alliance Announcement -- it goes here.
Open National RP
Open National RP is a retreat from alliance politics for those looking to do more traditional roleplaying. Open National RP roots you firmly as a national leader, or other figure on a national level acting out a scenario that may or may not be taking place in-game. This forum is not for trade requests or tech deals! Please refer to this forum for those activities. Foreign aid requests are not for this forum; they go here.
Game-related RP is In-Character and for the roleplay of things happening in-game. If another person is spying away your nukes in-game, you can roleplay it here. If a rogue randomly attacks you out of the blue, you can roleplay it here. This allows it to overlap a bit with the alliance world, so it's up to the RP author to decide whether it does.
This is the world where your imagination runs wild. If it's not happening in the game, it doesn't matter -- what you roleplay here is limited only by your imagination and the threshold across which your roleplay belongs in Game-related RP. Almost everything is left up to the RP creator. This forum is of course also In-Character.
