Secret Hitler - Game thread

4 months ago

Eight people have signed up. So we have 2 fascists and one Hitler! Here below is the list of special powers. This is the link to all the rules and the recruitment thread. (Are you too late to sign up, fear not. Announce your interest and I'll keep you on a stand-by list in case anyone drops out.)

The consequences of enacted Fascist policies
1. Nothing
2. The president investigates player's identity card (this will only confirm whether they are a fascist or not, but not whether they are Hitler.)
3. The president picks the next president.
4. The president must kill a player
5. The president must kill a player. Veto power is unlocked. (This is a permanent one. The Chancellor and president are allowed to discard their given cards if they both agree. How to do it: prez hands out chancellor two cards and chancellor has now the option to say "no" when taking a look at the given cards. This announcement is done publicly in the thread. If the president agrees to also veto it, then this batch of cards will be discarded and the presidential seat will move on to the next one in the list. This act also counts as a failed election cycle and will be tallied as such.)
6. Fascists win

Election cycle 1 

Fall, 1930
Things haven't been going so well for you, the average hardworking German politician. It's a cushy job and it does pay enough pennies to munch on multiple wiener schnitzels a day. Only bad thing is: the coalition that your colleague chancellor Herman Müller from the SDP has built up over the years is in disarray and on the verge of collapse. The ripples of that certain October day in 1928 in the US had by now turned into a raging tsunami that crashed the entire economy of your country in the blink of an eye. And the worst part is? Müller has called in sick for the eleventh day in a row. Something something bad gallbladder, doesn't really matter. Some of your other colleagues told you that he won't be coming back any time soon.  Darn it....just when you needed his leadership the most. 

As for the average German citizen?

Things haven't been going so well for them too which makes your job even harder. Rising food prices, being the losing side of a war about eleven years ago and now being told that their money is worth less than toilet paper. So... they weren't all too happy with your leadership. Their dissatisfaction was very apparent considering the number of riots and strikes. The German people are hungry, enraged and screaming for change. In their desperation they turn to a more radical party that seems to have all the answers waiting to be spoonfed to the general populace.... Return to tradition, bringing back Germany's former glory, an enemy hidden in the German population. And lots and lots of antisemitism which was very much in vogue at the time. And the worst part of their party policy? Well, you are pretty sure that they are aiming to dismantle democracy and if that happens, you'll lose your job or worse....

So of course you liberals will band together and enact liberal policies to prevent this from ever happening. No way that a wannabe fascist dictator from Austria with a bad Moustache will ever become chancellor and send Germany into another war, not with your excellent cooperation. 

Politicians. Feel free to introduce yourself, which party you're from and general life history or you may disclose nothing at all. We live in a free society after all. 

@mizal since you are on the top of the list you are chosen as the president. Feel free to choose your chancellor and you may give an explanation of your choice to the other politicians. The others may vote an ayyy or a No or discuss things a bit further.

P.S. keep every discussion about election cycle 1 below this comment (aka a reply). It keeps things tidy.

"Congratulations Frau President!" A man about 5'8, and a slim build says to the newly elected president. He most noticeably walks with a cane, has round glasses, and a mop of hair combed sideways, no beard but a pretty nice mustache. He wears a white shirt and a vest, having a nice pocket watch chain dangling from the pocket which he hides anytime he is outside his home or the public offices. 

Around his neck is one, long, jagged scar going all the way around in a giant circle. Some surgery he always hand waves, never giving specifics. 

Some say Jon Aldo is a freak of science, others say he was marred in a botched surgery attempt, and others think he was blown to several pieces serving in the Great War before being stitched back together. All anyone knows is that no one knows for sure. Despite his horrid figure and such, Aldo is quite friendly and optimistic, often heard whistling merrily down the city halls as his cane clacks against the floor.

"Glückwunsch!" commended a woman who's graying hair was restrained into a tight bun. She offered the new president an even tighter smile. "I am Frau Merkel. It's truly a pleasure to make your acquaintance," she added as she straightened out her black pencil skirt and shifted the white blouse tucked into it.

Julia Merkel had worked hard to get herself into this position, and she knew the new president's first impression of her could seriously aid or damage her ascension to greater power. She bit the inside of her mouth, thinking that she hadn't left home and gone against her parents' wishes only to be stopped now.

The halls click-clacked with the sound of pristine-soled cavalry boots, and soon enough the doors opened, as if by magic, to reveal the splendid visage of Burgrave Von Sentrechtul, in all his Sunday morning best.



"Grüß Gott, fellow Liberals!"

The venerable Burgrave was, of course, not an actual Burgrave, don't be silly! Before the nobility was disrecognized 12 years ago, he was merely an Edler. But he was given the title colloquially by the men in his fraternity after buying the castle he had spent much of the war shooting at Frenchmen from, and turning it into a public house for down-on-their luck veterans. With the votes and good will of his fellow survivors of the Great War, the man proved to be surprisingly left-leaning and pro-union for a former officer of the Kaiser's Reich. While no longer really the aristocrat he used to be on account of rapid social changes, nobody seemed to care to remind him of this fact- The man's money was good anywhere in Germany simply because of how well loved he was among his fellow citizens!

"Well aren't you a polite young man!" The Burgrave said, messing the hair of the street urchin who had opened the doors for him, and reaching under his cape for a crisp 500 TRILLION MARK bill and pressing it into the confused and filthy hands of the lad, "Here you go, dear boy! Get yourself a penny candy!"

Little did he know, those marks were barely worth 5% of a penny altogether, and they would be worth 4% by the time the boy got to the store, but what the dear old fool didn't know wouldn't hurt him. With a cheery and oblivious smile on his beak, he strolled down the steps of the parliamentary chamber, whistling a little polka ditty as the little homeless squatter was chased around the building by security guards.

"My compliments to the new chancellor! Love what you've done with the place already. I cannot wait to discuss ze legislations!"
