    READ ME AND SEND IN TURNS AS TURN 1

       No map as of yet, I could really use some help with this.   


    Major events of 1942:
    - A meteor approaches earth at breakneck speed before slowing down considerably when entering the earths atmosphere. The meteor makes impact with the frozen Arctic Sea, from the smouldering remains demoniac creatures emerge. The organisms belong to a highly invasive species, consuming native species in order to spawn more of their kin. They spread into the Taymyr Peninsula, decimating the local wildlife and people before forming several hives in the area. The bewildered navy stationed nearby inform Soviet high command of the infestation.
    - Another anomaly is noted when a bright flashing unidentified object is shot out of the air near Los Angeles by a United States aerial barrage. The shuttle crashes into the Pacific Ocean, taking its mysteries with it, but not before sending a cryptic message into outer space.
    - The United States and its allies gain the upper hand against the Japanese during the Battle of Midway, marking the turning point of the Pacific War.
    - The Battle of Stalingrad begins. It is mankind’s bloodiest battle yet. By the end of the year the skirmish has turned in favour of the Russians and it might even turn the war in favour of the Soviet Union.
    - With Stalin occupied with other matters the parasitic aliens, dubbed ‘Taymyr,’ are able to spread into the Siberian badlands, reaching the Central Siberian Plateau by the end of the year.

    Send your turn to me in the following format:
    Technology: Give me three techs to research.
    Military: Military actions and development of military.
    Foreign Affairs: Diplomacy and non-military actions affecting other nations.
    Internal Affairs: Anything inside your own country, such as politics and law.
    Example of a turn sheet:
    Technology:
    - Assault rifle
    - Radar
    - Nuclear bomb
    Military:
    - The government requests fire arms from Germany.
    - Partisan units are created to deal with manpower shortage.
    - The military invades Papua New Guinea.
    Foreign Affairs:
    - Grain is sold to Europe.
    - An attempt is made to assassinate Stalin.
    Internal Affairs:
    - Grain is subsidized.
    - Fascist parties are banned by law.

    Maybe the people being irrelevant nations should be important nations like America.

    Should have shopped my avatar onto his face
    or kriegsmar1nes


    I may join depending on the first turn, that'll probably give a nice solid moisturized feel on what the game will be like.

    Turn 1 – 1943-1944

    Alien Activity
    - Taymyr creatures are spotted in Central Siberia. People disappear at an alarming rate. Local folklore becomes contaminated with stories of "two-faced beasts", "blood sucking wolves" and other horrors. Huntsmen often find the desiccated remains of victims until they themselves fall victim to alien attacks. Alien structure seem incompatible with the natural environment as trees sink away in its living floor, which spreads across the landscape like a mould. The Siberian Military District becomes familiarized with the Taymyr horrors as the aliens begin closing in on mineral deposits. The Taymyr threat turns more complicated as it consumes more of Earth’s resources. Creature carapaces grow thicker after being shot a great deal of time and new creature abilities requires adaptable stratagem. The military units facing the Taymyr become deranged as their forces scatter and ultimaly succumb to a new type of warfare.

    Nazi Germany
    Germany faces defeat at Stalingrad and another one at Kursk. Germany’s offensive forces are crippled as the Soviets make a crushing advance. The Nazis turn to total war and send foreign soldiers and hastily raised militia into the grinder, these expendable troops manage to slow down the inevitable advance of the red army. The German Reich sues for peace with the Anglo-Saxons but it’s to late for sympathy now.

    The Nazis try to ameliorate the situation by upgrading small arms. Beginning with their machine gun, which they improve by lowering its firing, German engineers have also made it lighter and thus easier to transport. Automatic rifles are beginning to replace submachine guns and bolt action rifles. In addition to this the Germans upgrade tank armour, which slows down the already stagnating production as the Allies continue strategic bombings. Defeatist Germans question if these improvements will make any impact on the war effort, but they are silenced shortly after.

    United States of America
    The United States Coast Guard finds a wreckage of unknown nature, it is nothing like anyone has ever seen before. It is identified as the object shot down near L.A. and is promptly moved to a remote lot for further investigation. The mysterious alloy that makes up the exterior of the craft is strong, durable but easily cut through using thermite. The technology inside is unknown and so dissimilar to contemporary American technology that it is almost impossible to reverse engineer.

    The air force is now developing interceptor planes, powered by jet engines and equipped with advanced radars. The first prototypes boast a insignificant increase in speed, which allows them to barely intercept other planes, but through advancements in engine capacity the first military fighter jets should get be faster.

    The United States government is contrite over the hardships that Japanese American service men are put through in internment camps, because of this they are released. It is seen as a rather bold move, knife attacks consequently happen which causes anti-Japanese sentiment to escalate resulting in multiple deaths. Incidentally, fascist movements seem to be on a rise after a long period of decline and it turns into a big scare.

    The military-industrial complex usurps control of military research and development funds. Even though American soldiers are already the armed with powerful semi-automatic rifles and rapid firing submachine guns the military still insists on commissioning the development of more effective small arms. Some of the most renown arms manufacturers work together to create a automatic carbine chambered in .300 savage, it is effectively dangerous.

    The air force is inspired into introducing interceptor planes, powered by jet engines and equipped with advanced radars. The first prototypes boast a insignificant increase in speed, which allows them to barely intercept other planes, but through advancements in engine capacity the first military fighter jets should get be faster.


    Brazil
    - Brazil isolates itself from the world. The Vargas regime then uses international loans to expand its security force. The government of Brazil does not interest itself in international affairs but only in solidifying its dictatorships. The economy grows nevertheless.

    I think you're a bit late to only start asking about turns. About 2 months late.
