Re: Continent of Dreams

"White People", Part One For six years I lived in New Senland, in Landing specifically, with three other blokes; Gordon, from New Glasgow, Chiran from Khalistan and Paul from Douneray. We lived in a flat with four bedrooms and a mezzanine and a small kitchen and for those six years I share...

Re: Continent of Dreams

In my first year in the Raj Political Office I was fortunate to be posted to the Kaidailand and unfortunate enough to be posted to Lopburi, a one-lakh acre principality that straddles the Maeklong river. Her one very profitable industry is the manufacture of rubber tires, and her one ruler is the eb...

Re: About Questers

The Mutiny, Part Three In driving to Kuala Pahang, Hood encoutered scattere and frankly weak resistance. The movement of Loyalist troops was severely hampered by hordes of refugees and where they decided to fight they were beaten. Within weeks of starting his offensive, Hood was on the outskirts of ...

Re: About Questers

The Mutiny, Part Two It took one bullet to kill the Lord Protector of Praetonia and thusly to bring Praetonia into the conflict. That meant that Hood, as head of the Army of the Congress, had to act fast. His objective: the major Freeholder arsenals in Khalistan. He drove his tanks up there and capt...

Re: About Questers

The Mutiny, Part One Where did it all start? The Troubles, probably. A bunch of Praetonians decide that individuals can't own capital. They have a bit of a fight about it, but they lose. Their ideas are old, most likely - but they're really Levellers, they're not Marxists. So after that, there's sti...

Re: About Questers

Where’s your God Now? Soo-oo, Questers is a theocracy. It also has all the religions of the world present, so... what’s the state religion? No, it isn’t Congregationalism, or the common law, put your hand down. Any other answers? No? Okay. The state religion is - Arms. In America everyone believes i...

Re: About Questers

Keeping the Peace Questers doesn’t have police. Hold on a minute - your posts and wiki articles abound with references to the civil power, the Kings Men, the authorities, the Yeomanry. What gives? Woah there kiddo. Let’s rewind. The Common Law is all about the idea that after you die, your God will ...

Re: About Questers

Wait, so whose in charge then? Sure, Questers doesn't have a government - not a central government anyway. What it does have are governments, in the plural: around 15,000 of them, at a guess. I call the system in practice in Questers Estatism , because if you own land in estate, it's your state, for...

Re: About Questers

What are squatters? Squatters are people who reside on property without rent or a lease. Most major settlements in Questers are either adjacent to, or surrounded by, illegal shanty towns which would be very dangerous and expensive to remove (although they are from time to time cleared.) Residents of...

Re: About Questers

What's different? It's easy to assume a society without a central government would be radically different in terms of administration, but that's not really true in Questers: people still pay rents, ground leases, mandatory contributions and other payments in order for a central administration, which...
