Text-based "New World" forum game

Artan is a fictional continent set in the Atlantic. Players can either join as indigenous peoples (who are created by said players) or as colonizing powers (who are real countries, e.g. England, France, Spain, etc.)

The game is turn-based. It is a simulation of sorts, the game becoming increasingly complex as the years go by and players are confronted with developing societies. Politics, economics, culture, religion, and pretty much every facet of life are increasingly simulated in some way.

Users can join at any time.

For a while all stats and maps can only be viewed by players, so those not joining the game can't actually see what's going on till we're many turns in.

If you wish to join, you have two choices:
1. Play as an indigenous population (either created by you or joining as part of an existing player's population)
2. Play as part of a colonizing country (you get to choose which role, e.g. a colonial expedition, conquistadors, the church, planters, aristocrats, Puritans, etc.)

Send me a private message stating which of these you want to be.

The indigenous players will be able to play the game immediately, having access to their own private forum areas, and the first turns will represent hundreds or even thousands of years going by as these players form societies and possibly interact with each other.

I figure some on here may be interested. I don't think the community contains more than one conservative. The rest consider themselves as part of the left or liberal in some way.
