You think you want to change the world for the better? You want to help stop the rape, slaughter, and mutilation of helpless civilians? Well how about trying to heal one the bleeding sores on the African continent? You hesitate, but the good news is that I am not talking about the Congo.
I'm talking about the Darfur Conflict or Darfur War if you prefer. I'm talking about one of the principal bleeding heart concerns of rich white Americans who are Oh So Concerned about what is happening 6000 miles away. You don't really care, you are just trying assuage your conscience. Pile back into your Hummer and head out to see the latest pile of crap Hollywood has prepared for you. Or...
The UN has arranged a special conference in Khartoum. The Darfur Peace Agreement from 2006 is unraveling. Violence has escalated in the region to approach the pre-agreement levels. If a new agreement can be reached not only will it bring peace to Darfur but it will help the shore up the Nairobi Peace Agreement for the larger North-South conflict which is in deep trouble.
The world is coming out for the conference. Every regional leader will have his interests represented along with numerous global players. They will be joined by representatives from every advocacy, NGO and foundation that has some skin in the game. All present to place pressure on the principals to resolve this crisis or not.
Tried but never succeeded in committing genocide? Strived all your life to violate the Geneva Conventions but always fell short? Want your place in the Hague defendant stand but just can't figure out how to get there?
Well now as a Sudanese politician you can participate in the conference while on the side you direct the Sudanese military or Janjaweed militia to wipe out Darfurian villages aka rebel strongholds.
As a Janjaweed militiaman or a member of the Sudanese military you can terrorize the Darfurian civilians trapped in IDP camps and the not so helpless Darfurian rebels.
As a rebel you can pretend to be all for peace while you direct your men to terrorize Northern civilians.
As a stupid American activist you can whine as you stand on the sidelines 6K miles away.
As a victim you can get raped, mutilated, or murdered.
For everyone else we have an array of African Union "Peace" Keepers, NGO, advocacy, and foundation representatives along with diplomats of all creeds to cast.
One additional note, the Darfur conflict is racially and religiously charged albeit in a very confusing way especially for an outsider to understand. These aspects of the conflict will not be candy coated in anyway during the game.
Hopefully after four hours someone will have solved the problem one way or another...
Oh by the way if you are not at least 18 years old do not sign up for this game. We are trying to protect the next generation from the horrors of this generation as futile as that may seem...
