Discussion in 'Archive: The Senate Floor' started by Ender Sai, Apr 1, 2007.
Is it too late for me to sign up for this?
Knowing Ender, he'll have no problem with that.
Just make sure you place the envelope with the proper "incentive" taped to the underside of the toilet paper dispenser in the third stall from the left of the men's room on the fifth floor. Once he's verified the "incentive" (and given me my cut), you'll be admitted with no problems.
Remember, small unmarked bills this time.
mÃ¢che le maÃ®s Ã©clatÃ©...
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
so when will the rest of the assignments come out?
Nope. I had a great role in mind for you...
I'll let you know via PM what it is.
OK, the scenario is coming...
The roles are as follows:
1) Lowie - Italy
2) Kaicolumbia - Peru
3) Jabbadabbado - People's Republic of China (P)
4) Farraday - Iran, special invitee
5) Obi-Zahn Kenobi - Indonesia
6) FIDo - South Africa - Presidency of UNSC
7) Espalpy - Russian Federation (P)
8) Erk - Qatar
9) V-03 - Congo (Republic of)
10) JK Halcyon [?] - Panama
11) Beowulf - France (P)
12) Drago - Slovakia
13) Dark_Side_Fatty - Ghana
14) darth_paul - Director, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
15) Fluke_Groundrunner - Germany, special invitee
16) Jabba-wocky - United States of America (P)
17) Kimball - United Kingdom (P)
18) DeathStar1977 - Syria, special invitee
19) Gonk - Israel, special invitee
South Africa currently holds presidency (and would thus get VIPship and "control" of debate items for the first week or two, followed by the next states in alphabetical order (ie UK then US).
(P) is obviously Permanent Members.
Unless there's any drastic "ZOMG I HAET MY ASSIGNED COUNTRY YOU BELLIGERENT DRUNK MEGALOMANIAC E_S!!!1!", I suggest you do some research into your country's foreign policy stance. In some cases, you may want to sabotage debate for domestic reasons...
The scenario will go up later this weekend.
Mr44 and I will be Controllers - we approve any facts, deployments etc you introduce. You want to claim something happened? We ok it. You want to introduce intelligence? We ok it. Etc, etc.
I picked some of these to deliberately challenge the players (Gonk and Israel, anyone? ) and let them ham it up a bit.
The focus will be, of course, MidEastern.
Got what I expected.... oddly enough
You expected it?
So I get to choose the topics? Goodie.
The Soviet Union accepts your proposal.
(BTW I need to figure out how to type in a Russian accent, every time I read Sherylin's posts it makes much more sense if I picture Chekhov reading it)
You just need to get a copy of Hooked On Slavonics.
Just pay no mind to the shark pool.
'77 has apparently forgotten that whatever DM's politics, fact of the matter is, he DOES hail from New Orleans...
Gonk plays Israel?
*begins renting woody allen movies*
Yay! I'm the Congo!
Ender, do I get the late Mobutu Sese Seko's fortune?
Let me know so I can retire down to Hilton Head and play golf....
EDIT: Gonk playing Israel?????
This might almost be as good as Battlestar Galactica...
...scratches head, contemplates awesome Season 3 finale.....
On the other not, perhaps not ....
Obviously this entire thing is an exercise in E_S trying us to re-examine long held beliefs,
Well you'll fail E_S! farradamadinejad will be as belligerent and angry as I have always been!
I'd like to sign up
The people of the nation of Israel refuse to be impressed with the bluster of Cobra Commander... I mean, farradamadinejad.
Question: I assume you will also be controlling any unassigned nations and responses to any queries we have pertaining to them. Like if I make rude gestures to Egypt, you'll be there telling me the Egyptians are making rude gestures right back?
But let's go. If you're not for me, you're against me.
You mean if you're not for ME you're against YOU.
farradamadinejad would like to take a moment to say farradamadinejad will be talking in the third person until farradamadinejad gets the bagels promised him by Russia.
You put me as France? France? FRANCE????
Oh well. [snooty accent] Monsieur Beowulf is ready for debate. [/snooty accent]
Could be worse, he could've given you uhhh.....Kiribati.

That's pretty much it, yeah.. I also have a soft spot for NATO, if members want to potentially take advantage of international air strikes or peacekeepers.
Slovakia says Hooray! (NATO member since 2004!)
beowolf, this might help:
and yeah, i had this italian feeling. I don't quite know why.
