Under New Management

Post by Boosterh on Sun Sep 24, 2017 2:46 am

elephant elephant Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen of the Siamese Court,

It is my distinct pleasure to announce that HRH King Mongkut, the Lord over our Heads, the King of Sima, has returned from his spiritual retreat. Enlightened by the wisdom of the great gurus of our time, and vitalized by his restful retreat, it is all but certain that His Majesty will have bold plans for the betterment of the Kingdom and its peoples. Although we are respected throughout the world for our wealth, culture, wisdom, virtue, and courage, His Majesty knows that to rest upon our laurels is to invite decadence, sloth, avarice, and ruin into our great land. Let us all vow to follow the example of our King, and bend every sinew to the cause of the Kingdom.

His Excellency, Phraya Anand Chatewi, Royal Chancellor of the Kingdom of Sima

That aside, I am just letting everyone know that the Kingdom of Sima is now under a new player's control. This is my first PBEM game, so we'll see how quickly I drive this thing into the ground.

I know diplomacy is conducted in game, with an appropriate time delay, but just wanted to let everyone know that their previous relationships have just been reset, because I have zero knowledge of past dealings/conflicts/agreements that the Kingdom may have had in the past. I will of course honour all currently existing formal agreements, but I simply do not know about anything that isn't in force right now, or that may have been arranged informally.

Also, as a matter of pure practicality, I live in Western Canada, so anyone not in the New World can expect a minimum 24h turnaround on out of game communications.

The previous occupant of your seat of power was none too friendly to Her Majesty's Government. However, being the ever honourable British Gentleman, Lord Derby will certainly allow bygones to be bygones and their might well be some diplomatic mail for you.

Welcome to Scramble... If we can help answer any questions please feel free to ask.

A big welcome to Scabble........for info from the totally biased position of the HEIC I would say that Siam seems to have had too distinct Govts in scabble:

A) Govt no1 was an ally of the French and Italy and was also viewed as a front for a Trade Company/The Triads. Which tended to result in clashes with British Trade Interest in China.

- Now clashing with British Trade Interests is sort of the normal state of affairs in Scabble & if your particular rival is the Opium Carte (AKA Albion Corporation) well not even the British Govt gets on with them. If fact you can probably write the longest and most over the top attack on the evils of the Opium Corporation your imagination can come up with and Lord Derby, The HEIC & the Tea Cartel will probably agree with every word.

B) Govt no2 did not take on a trade company position as well so seemed a bit baffled as to why people thought he was a Triad and in control of half the worlds Opium. But he did have a thing about photograph and obtaining young ladies for his Harem plus the odd European Governess to improve education.

Think player was thinking cross between "The King & I" and the the historic development of Japan.

Of course this being scabble when you start to Publish photographs of young ladies flashing their ankles and as a Eastern Ruler start to seek a European Governess...........To the Triad Opium Smuggler reputation was Pornograph and White Slaver.

So basically view in the Times & Telegraph (which of course print nothing but the facts) is that your character is a Triad White Slaver & Opium dealer with the Worlds largest Collection of Pornograph.


Actually compared to Napolean III, Bismack, The Mad Mullah of the Sudan, Or the Hon James Farnworth Junior etc, etc its quite a moderate reputation almost a clean slate and I dont think anyone has sworn blood feud or war to the death. But I may be wrong:D

I know that Stuart provides a great brief that is not biased toward the British position at all. After all, Lord Derby and Lord Hardinge intend to make the world peaceful, by making it British. A job, tea and cricket for everyone!

Pornography, Opium, and White Slavery? That actually explains more than it doesn't about several of the more interesting entries on my list of possessions.

Thanks for the quick history primer, it has actually been quite helpful.
