So anyone who missed it on the previous place, this is Balance of Power, a turn-based game of geopolitics, beginning in 1961. Players take on the roles of the world's major nations and attempt to further their own goals amidst the espionage, underhandedness, and backstabbery of the Cold War, while trying not to see the whole world turned into a smouldering nuclear ash heap.
It took a long time typing everything up in the old thread, which I can't bring myself to redo right now, so I'll answer any questions people have if they don't remember what the old thread said. For now, I'm tentatively re-opening sign ups. If you signed up previously, you just have to post to reclaim what you had before.

If you want a nation not listed here, have a chat or ask a question here and we'll see what can be done!
I'd like to argue in favour of anyone who's even remotely interested in the Cold War to join this. It's not only a fun, collaborative experience, it also gives you plenty of reasons to investigate and research the obscure, not to mention get new perspectives on things.

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies — God damn it, you've got to be kind.
futurist: Good luck to you, MN!

MinnesotaNationalist: well, that was the most underwhelming jury duty ever. Came in one day, was told to go home, and now I'm told that I'm not needed anymore for this session.

ieph: I've been actually thinking of just spending my time here, gradually decreasing my presence in AH.com. But in the meantime, I'm spending my time reviving one of my old WIPs sadly lost to the sands of time (I guess)

ieph: In fact, I'm even thinking of reviving my wikibox TL right here.

jennysnooper87: If that's the case, would it be okay if I moved the TL from AH.com to this site?
