How are you?

So

I wanted to know what you think of this prospal

Mars is terrafromed right, Meaning, its core is reactivated, and therefore geothermal voclanos and activity are possibily

This means, Life...COULD evovle on Mars in RP. because of How mars would need to be terrafromed to have you know plant life and stuff. This mean Bacteria and Microbiotic Life must have also been exposed to planet, theere is nothing to say that this life, couldn't evole on Mars? I mean sure, that process takes millions of Years. But this is main RP and things are known to be extremely unreaistic, so. I mean hell, this could happen n all of the terraformed maps, like Venus and the Moon. also, Mecury was terrafromed, but i don't think a map was ever made for it.

This story begins in the Ballastford Paddock, a fairly large paddock within the Royal Moldovan Gardens in Lower Balti.
It had been decided that the fine gentlemen of the Lower Balti had lacked any form of entertainment nor physical activity to retain their muscular bodies over the winter period.
So, on one particularly sunny Saturday afternoon, one man had brought a round ball from Ireland, it was naturally a rough 2 near 3 score of men joined to play a small game.
There weren’t very many rules to this game, it was mainly just a big scrimmage between two teams, ‘Blues’ and ‘Whites’, each designated by a sash coloured the same. Once a player had crossed the line with the ball, they declared it was a ‘conversion’ and equated to three points. After about 2.5 hours worth of play, it was deemed too dark to continue play, with the Blues winning 6 to 0. The men agreed it was a jolly good game, and a handful of men decided to continue to refine the game and continue to play it. These four men will be of particular significance for a fair bit. They are George Ivan Aleksandar Militovic, or Gia Militovic, Seamus O’Connor, the ball supplier from Ireland, Ivan Hakkalin, and Thomas Thompson, also from Ireland.
The next day, these four men started debating creating rules for this game they had created, which would be Moldovan Rules Foot-Ball. The two teams, formerly Blues and Whites, would now be known as Balti Football Club, known as the Blues, and Vadubice Foot Ball Club, known as the Royals. Vadubice took their name from the suburb in Lower Balti that the Royal Moldovan Gardens was based, and was one of the upper-class suburbs of the city.
After about a weeks worth of debating, they came up with a set of rules.
Moldovan Rules of Football
  1. A conversion may be declared should a player place the ball on the ground behind the two posts in which they are attacking

  2. the ground shall be no less than 100 metres and no more than 750 metres. The ground shall not be more than 500 metres wide, and shall not be less than 200 metres wide

  3. The ball may not be taken in hand while on the ground, and only taken in hand from being in the air

  4. Should a player taken the ball in the air directly from another player’s foot, they may declare mark and shall have an unopposed kick from 7 metres behind the place that the mark took place, besides the opposition player standing where the mark took place.

  5. The ball may not be knocked along the ground by anything other than the foot of a player

  6. Once tackled, a player must dispose of the ball at the next opportunity

  7. A player may not run with the ball more than is necessary to kick

  8. A player may not hack at or trip up another players legs, nor push them from behind.

  9. Should a player violate these rules the captain of the opposing team may declare that they are owed a free kick from where the violation has taken place.

To be continued.

The game was still very much a primitive game. There were no set rules on how many players could play, but captains generally decided a stronger team, a team that won more usually, would play with less players as a handicap. These clubs, in particular Vadubice Football Club, were often suspected of becoming superior clubs in ‘dirty’ ways. Moldovan Rules Football was often regarded as a amateur sport, a sport for entertainment, unlike Rugby and Football, to very prevalent sports in Romania, rugby less so across Transleithania. It was often suspicious that players joined Vadubice from clubs around Balti and the rest of Moldova, rather randomly. A few pound usually sealed the deal, along with some form of housing. Clubs were forming up all across Moldova, but were still mainly prevalent in the game, Vadubice, Greater Balti United, East Balti and Floresti. The grammar school team, Balti, had appeared to have just died off. There were very few records of the first team, but they seemingly fell off the map in the latter years of the 2200s, but it will never truly be known what happened.
There were also other flaws in the game. Often before a conversion was all but imminent from an opposing team, the cries ‘free kick! He has broken the rules!’ could often be heard along the grounds. The shape of the grounds was often rather undetermined. They were usually in the shape of an oval due to most clubs playing in two or three grounds, those being the Balti Cricket Fields which was rarely used but still heavily administrated by the Balti Cricket Club (BCC) and the Floresti Athletics Track and used the oval shape as a matter of convenience, and did the same at Ballastford Paddock bar a convenient set of trees also being a boundary. However, one club made a large step forward. In the summer of 2287, Singerie Football Club applied to use the Singerie Rugby Football Club’s pitch, known as The Terrace. It was the ideal arrangement. It kept use of The Terrace in the summer, preventing the hardening of the soil in the tough summers of central Moldova, and would also earn money for the rugby and Moldovan rules clubs, vital especially for the latter as they generally relied on volunteers or the kindness of leather cobblers to lend them a ball.
The ball, too, was a matter for concern. There was no set shape. In most matches, a rugby ball was used, but in others, a football. In 2273, an except could be read:

‘It has been noted by the local council of Lower Balti that one Gia Militovic has fulfilled an invoice for five Size II Rugby Footballs which shall be arriving from England’

So there were definite rules and adaptions that were needed, and councils still formed. There were a few topics that dominated discussion: how a violation of the rules was determined and by who, and also the types of ball to be used. As many more clubs decided to use the Rugby ball, it became the unofficial standard of the game. But the Moldovan Football Rules Committee decided not to act, as they had greater interests for the game. In the end, the committee was interested in making rules on professionalism, something become increasingly prevalent in the game, and the creation of a league. The latter was particularly important as volunteer secretaries and captains, the former usually doubling as treasurer, mostly determined fixtures. There were a few informal cups played between a few teams, the most famous being the Metro Balti Cup, played by teams in the Metropolitan area of Balti. Somewhat ironically, the most successful team was Metropolitan Football Club. In the end, the rules were formalised by 2287, being these set:

Moldovan Rules of Football

  1. A conversion may be declared should a player place the ball on the ground behind the two posts in which they are attacking

  2. the ground shall be no less than 100 metres and no more than 750 metres. The ground shall not be more than 500 metres wide, and shall not be less than 200 metres wide

  3. The ball may not be taken in hand while on the ground, and only taken in hand from being in the air

  4. Should a player taken the ball in the air directly from another player’s foot, they may declare mark and shall have an unopposed kick from 7 metres behind the place that the mark took place, besides the opposition player standing where the mark took place.

  5. The ball may not be knocked along the ground by anything other than the foot of a player

  6. Once tackled, a player must dispose of the ball at the next opportunity

  7. A player may not run with the ball more than is necessary to kick

  8. A player may not hack at or trip up another players legs, nor push them from behind.

  9. Should a player violate these rules the captain of the opposing team may declare that they are owed a free kick from where the violation has taken place. The Mark Rule, rule IV, shall be used after a free kick is determined

  10. Each team shall appoint an umpire who shall stand under the posts and adjudicate on rules violations when appealed to.

  11. Each game shall start by coin toss, with the winning team electing to kick or receive. They shall then do what they have decided.

  12. Tackling someone by the neck or above or the feet shall be illegal under penalty of a free kick

  13. Should a player intentional kick a player above the torso they shall be ejected from the match and find £10 to the team offended, as well as the opposition team be awarded a free kick.

  14. If the ball is kicked through the posts on the full without touching anything but the foot of the attacking player, they shall be awarded two points. This will be known as a ‘goal’

  15. if the ball is knocked through the goals by scrimmage, the team attacking those posts shall be awarded 1 point.

  16. After a goal has been kicked, the opposing player must stand in the box that should be no longer than 5 yards long and 3 yards wide and kick the ball before leaving the rectangle.

  17. A conversion shall be worth 4 points.

The new rules were quickly printed and circulated across North Moldova, and Northeast Romania, where the sport was most popular. But it didn’t answer every problem, some it did well but others it only created more. Umpires were established but captains declaring a free kick had not been removed, which had been decided by the committee as the goal umpires could not always see rules violations. These rules also limited violence in the sport, trying to drag it away from being a sport of thuggery and back to its roots as a hard fought, gentleman’s game. It also finally determined scoring which significantly helped disputes over how scores would be kept or who actually won games, something rather obvious initially overlooked.

This would bring a new age to Moldovan Rules Football.

German-Austrian Civil War!
The situation is dire. Since the Steinhardt Putsch, Socialist and Communist paramilitary groups have begun growing and preparing for a civil war. The streets are filled with chaos, and families are being split between Communist and Anti-Communist forces. For the time being, Monarchists, Conservatives, Liberals, Nationalists, and the few remaining pro-government Social Democrats have united against the Red Menace.

Far away from all of that, however, stands the German-Austrian 3rd Army, in the Northern Sudetenland. The Army, led by a man named Stefan von Bauer, hasn't been made aware of the Chaos in Vienna, but has still noticed the tension throughout the Countryside. Not far away, von Bauer notices another, smaller army. Assuming it to be either reinforcements or assisting divisions, he waits for them to draw closer. While he is notifying Vienna that reinforcements have arrived, The Communist Army opens fire on the unprepared 3rd Army.
Austria has fallen to civil war.
