ebrk85 Posted April 14 Share Posted April 14 I have the sheets ready to go already so welcome to the 1800 Playtest!! We are entering a new era where the first real organized parties have developed. The "Blue Party" or Democratic-Republicans seem to have the advantage, as it champions the expanded rights of the common American over those of the Eastern establishment. The power of the nation is certainly shifting westward and the "Red Party" or Federalists are lagging behind in representing this new crop of America who have fewer ties to Northern banks and foreign trade. The "Red Party" must decide whether to adapt to population shifts or to use political means to curtail the power of the other party. Internationally, British maritime practices have been especially aggressive as late, mostly to do with their ongoing rivalry with France. However, we are frequently caught in the middle of all of this. While the "Blue Party" favors an aggressive response to Britain, going so far as to seek an embargo or war, the "Red Party" wishes to do nothing that could disrupt trade.
