Founding Fathers Forum Game: A republic, if you can keep it.


@Panzeh’s Thaddeus Stevens Makes an Important Speech, gaining one influence.


It would have been better if General Grant had kept that man locked up after resolving the Kansas problems. Change can and should come, but while terrorists and extremists on both sides of the issue fan the flames of violent conflict, hidebound with their millenarialist ideologies, change without their self-fulfilling prophecies of holocaust proves more distant.

—President W.R. King, Letter to the Atlantic National Magazine, 1853.


I’ve asked @CF_Kane to clarify a card so we’re on hold at the moment.


Once @Ironsight signals that he is ready to move forward, I will distribute influence points (which I should have done prior to the draft, but it doesn’t make a difference in this instance), and @Navaronegun can start us on the people phase.


Go ahead. I’m keeping my cards close to the vest, for now.


President King does nothing of political import in the People Phase. He does however, pay a visit to his bosom buddy, and long-time pal-around, James Buchanan’s (@Cuthbert) home in Pennsylvania to encourage him to reenter politics for tto improve the comity of the Nation in these troubling times (“Please, James! I’m sorry! Forgive me. You know none cares for you the way I do!”).



Will Pass when it’s my turn in The Round.


What are we waiting on?


We’re waiting on @Brooski to decide if he is doing anything in The Round. It’s been 18 hours so if we don’t hear from him in another 6 then @CF_Kane can decide for him using the 25th Amendment.








Stevens will make a speech for free


Pass. @CF_Kane


That Thad Stevens sure can talk good. +1 popularity.

Auction for last card and impulse starts with @Brooski.
