    Just to be clear, the succession crisis doesn't necessarily have to happen over a monarch title, it can happen as a crisis after the death of a dictator, an autocrat right?

    Can it be used to show political crisis after some democratically elected leader that held its position for a long time dies/is defeated/retires?

    Does the succession Crisis need to be just that, a Crisis, or can it escalate to a full war?

    Yes, the crisis or its aftermath could include a war.

    Do I get bonus points if it includes both a succession *and* a secession crises? Perhaps while in the midst of a recession?

    I hate myself for forgetting to actually make the map that I had wanted to enter for 192.

    :frown: You could still make it, and post it in the main Map Thread! I'm sure people will be interested in seeing it.

    to posit another few contest ideas, how about:

    A Phoenix from the Ashes: Depict a country that has recently regained Independence after a long period of foreign subjugation

    Reunited at Last: Depict a territory that had long ago been lost by a country but has recently been reunited with it

    Here's another suggestion of contest ^^

    New Dawn, New Deal, New Day :
    Depict a country or territory that has gone through massive changes (political, economical, or other) in a short amount of time.

    I've got to say it's a bit weird that we all eventually settled on at least Nazi adjacent stories for this MOTF...

    I think there's like 75% of the whole alternate history production that's about WW2 or the US

    Just to be sure : does the country need to be formally annexed ? Or is it possible to have the subjugated country be just crushed by another force ?

    Doesn't need to be annexed, per se, but it would need to be under a significant level of control for an extended period.

    Yes, a decade seems like a good benchmark.
