RMB RP FOR DUMMIES
Welcome to the TNP RMB! The TNP RMB is diverse, dynamic and fun community. This is a guide on how you can succeed here!
To get started, you first must TG the creator of the map that you wish to be on that you want land, and include your claim that you can outline with screenshot editing software. (there are sometimes other maps, but the one below is the only consistently RPed one.)
This is the main map of the RMB, and is the only one with an extensive moderating system. It also is the most active.
Your next step is to join an alliance. These RP organizations are basically blocs or factions of nations. It is recommended that you join one since the chance of you getting invaded is drastically reduced with membership in an alliance.
If you want to be on Strangereal's most tumultuous continent then the OSEAN League is probably the best for you. Originally founded by longtime RMBer Toshavo III, and currently run by me, it is Osea's largest alliance.
If you want a classic military alliance, look no further than Illusia and Neverendia's Ironblood
Or if you are a dictatorship and want a stable and peaceful alliance, joinFriently's Warsaw Pact, which is for dictatorial nations.
If you're looking for a cosy and individualistic alliance, then you might consider Ironblood Zwei, run by Rynese Empire.
Dispatch temporarily unavailable. Enquire for information and membership with Rynese Empire.
Our penultimate alliance is the frozen world of the Legion of Doom, created by The Sanada Clan
Finally, if you wish to be in the vanguard of the world revolution, the Soviet Commune by Lapathiya will organize the struggle to overthrow the imperialists and capitalists of SR.
I do wish to inform you that you are not allowed to join an alliance until you have spent one week on SR.
Growing your power and influence in this world is a game of patience and strategy. You will almost certainly start off very small unless you were part of this community before. Start wars with non-alliance aligned nations for expansion (Puczovska is notoriously stingy with giving out land), or, once you have made your presence felt, then make your own alliance! You may someday have it featured in this guide here!
You are recommended to have a high Defense Forces statistic, since that is the only way to build a larger military. The RMB average Defense Forces statistic is very high, being at around 20,000.
I have recently created a guide on making alliances, which is presented here.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO RECRUIT NATIONS IN OTHER ALLIANCES OR RECRUIT NATIONS WHICH HAVE BEEN ON SR FOR LESS THAN A WEEK.
It is beneficial if you join the RMB Discord, as much activity happens there, and one can meet experienced Rpers there as well. Link: https://discord.gg/QRCxEYZ
1. We take a dim view on caps lock. Don't do it.
2. Use correct English grammar. If you don't, you may look stupid to some nations here.
3. Triple posting is considered spam.
4. Don't quote spam posts. If you do, you may get the post that quoted spam suppressed.
5. And, as with most message boards online, spamming and flaming are not taken lightly here. If you do either, you will almost certainly get reported to the NS mods and you may get your nation deleted, or even IP banned from NS.
6. Be nice OOC. Being rude and insulting IC is fine, but once you act rude and insulting OOC, then you will almost certainly fail at geopolitical life in the RMB
7. Also: Posts that measure more than 5 inches long (30 lines) should be put within the [.spoiler] and [./spoiler] tags. (Without the dots)
8. In addition, don't threaten to leave the community only to come back later. It's considered immature.

Examples of RP
There are several categories of RP, which are listed as follows:
For Military RP
Here are the rules and restrictions on military sizes:
And the restrictions on invading nations:
When actually writing your RP posts, please include the number of what doing what going where.
Example of good war RP:
The HIS DDG-87 Juniom, HIS DDG-54 Nilek, HIS DDG-926 Lokem, HIS SDDG-724 Silenk, and the DDG-62 Hundier silently glide through the icy waters of the Arctic Ocean, approaching the coast of Tanabon. The crew, not trying to freeze themselves, hid under the deck except for the watchmen. The sea was covered in fog. I was sitting with some seamen, playing cards. I remember it precisely, I had just gotten a royal flush.
Suddenly, a cry rang out, but not from our ship. Then, a loud bang as a ship collided with another. I got up to inspect with the other crew. Some thought that the helmsmen had turned into each other. As he got out, we heard alarms ringing. But,
As the other ships' crew reported to the armories, we knew that something had happened. Something bad. Suddenly, our ship lurched and started to turn. It was going east, back to Hardonius, but it slowly glided around. It activated its stealth drive, moving slower but silently. We watched as sailors and soldiers clashed. The The Sanada Clan and Tanabon troops shot and killed even the surrendering sailors.
We saw the other destroyers and the hostile escort ships bombard each other. Only about 7 minutes after the battle started, it ended. An enemy victory. The Hardonian ships were burning slabs of dead metal and fire. As soon as we knew our men lost, the ship pulled into the fog, disappearing back towards Hardonius.
For Diplomatic RP
Be formal, as if you were representing a nation in real life. Also, approach the RP with an attitude to compromise.
Example of good diplomatic RP:
For Self RP
Be as descriptive as possible. You are showcasing your RP skill to the rest of the RMB.
Example of good self RP:
28th of January, 2040.
'What was it, the 100th or more time that she layed on her bed, looking at that ceiling? It seemed never ending, every single minute that she spent like that...'
It was a dark night in Königsberg. The city was quiet, but bright. Tiara wandered through it, alone, feeling the cold air of the coastal city hit her face was not a pretty feeling, but she'd bear it. She was underway to the Königsberg Central Station, to take a train to the far-away city of Brandenburg, where she would settle down again. Life in the Imperial Palace, though nice, was too damaging to her own self emotionally to ever be worth it. She knew that she was acting fragile, she knew that people would never understand her reasoning for escaping with a mere backpack and her ID, but she was still going to run away. Königsberg, a city she once loved, was now the last thing she wanted to see. Her walking pace seemed to accelerate every time that a small breeze of cold air passed, though that, to Tiara, was of no importance. She had to get away.
Ten minutes later, she found herself entering the station, and on the line for the last train of the day to Brandenburg. She got a free pass, as she was one of the Kaiserrins of the Rynese Empire, and they were excempt of travel fees such as the ones imposed on the Königsberg-Brandenburg line. Eventually, she entered the passenger car, and sat down alongside the window. It didn't take too long before the train departed, silently at first, before picking up speed. All passenger trains had a maximum speed of 130 kilometers per hour inside of large cities, though it didn't take long before the train could speed up above 270km/h, as she boarded the train on the station closest to the city's end, per se. She grabbed her backpack, opened it, and grabbed a pair of headphones that she bought, as well as a music playing device that could use them. It was time to sleep the way to Brandenburg, so, as there were many small towns on the way there, she hoped that she would get there around 6 in the morning, some 4 and a half hours later. She picked the calmest song out of the ones she had on her device, "Midnight Drive - Instrumental", and not even 10 minutes later, she was fast asleep. The small bumps that the train made as it continued it's fast way down the railroad were of no bother, as the train was designed to supress them as much as possible. She slept well, even people entered and exited the train on the several stops before hers.
At 6:09 in the morning of the 29th of January, Tiara was woken up by one of the crew members, as she had reached the last stop of her journey - Brandenburg Central Station. Located two blocks from the Spee River, it was about as close to the very center of the city as one could locate it. From there, she would need to walk just about 7 blocks to the Brandenburg Palace, where all the political advisors of the Rynese Empire lived, and where she would begin to live too. It was her best bet to stay in power, yet run away from that place that caused her this feeling of emptyness. She was a bit tired, even if she had just slept, but she thought a bit of music would get her going again. "The Mechanix", by SULFUR-7, was her song of choice. A fast, thrashy song about cars and auto repairs. It was SULFUR-7's counterpart to Battery's "The Four Horsemen", which was the next song on her playlist. Eventually, she got off the train, and was now underway to the Brandenburg Palace. Brandenburg, unlike Königsberg, had a very 'flat' city centre. There weren't a lot of skyscrapers or high-rises in the city centre, but there were a lot of parks, museums, and other important builds around that made the city a very good touristic spot, even if it was located on the very middle of the country.
The road infrastructure at Brandenburg was very carefully planned out. Every road flowed perfectly onto the other, so there weren't a lot of street lights to stop the constant flow of cars, except on intersections where people could cross the street. Tiara headed down La Plata Avenue, the very central avenue of Brandenburg, and continued down it for several blocks. The Palace, a tall, classical-style construction, could be seen in the near distance. She wasn't too far away from her new home, so she decided to take a small detour to where the Spee River and the Aperture River merged. It was a nice scenic spot where one could see very far into the cities' far away skyline. After all, Brandenburg was the most populated city of the Rynese Empire. She sat down on a nearby bench, and just watched as the rivers' waves collided with one another, forming one large wave movement down the rest of what was the Plata River.
She was calm. The metal was gone, and she just carefully listened as the waves clashed against one another. The sounds of the cars, people walking by, and the constant chatter and sounds of the city did not bother her, for she was now living.
Without that empty feeling,
It was then, when she said probably one of her most famous lines...
"To Live, one must kill parts of themselves to 'fit in'. However, i do not believe in such pale deaths. To Live, one must Die, but to Die, one must have already lived something that drew them away from fitting in. An endless cycle of living and dying, that i will not follow through with." - She didn't realize it, but when she spoke, everyone around her just payed attention. Her soft, thin voice was able to be heard even if she spoke really lightly, in such a way that it was almost as if she was speaking under her breath.
To Live... Is to Die.
Have fun and try not to get annexed on your first day.
I’m good thank you, how are you?
Yeah no into nordic
Well if these so called “Romans” have an empire that is close to our borders, then we will be on the defensive 24/7.
The usual in our nation (nothing).
But I have good chances.
Emperor Arthur IV endorses Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII as the one and only true Emperor of the Romans
Dude, Viktor Orban is a politician in Hungary and Barrack Obama is a former US President.
There is a difference in the two...
Hey there. I'm looking to wrap up the ant RP. You wouldn't be able to find your last RP post to me on it would you?
