Title: Europe Section?

A Europe Section would rock ass. Seriously, just think of all the possibilities!
Why not just like an "Other Continents" section.
Because what about incidents in Africa? Europe? Asia?

We could but then we'd have to have to have seperate agencies, and we couldn't just have people being part of more than one agency. So we'd have something like a VIB guy, but he'd be stuck waiting for the occasional mission in Britain. Or a French FVZA equivilent agent would be stuck waiting for a mission in France.
So yeah, we're staying in the USA for now. Otherwise we'd have to choose between imperialist plotholes or having people be completely segregated from the rest of the forum.

I remember both asking this exact question and being asked this question by Raike, due to his character living in Korea. It is true that the scope of the missions would be expanded, but, again, forces would be spread out over 2 or more continents, and because the FVZA is an underfunded government agency that isn't really supposed to exist, the financial backing needed for shuttling people from country to country would be both difficult to aquire and even more difficult to explain away. Not to mention the jet lag from going America -> Europe -> Asia.
Some private individuals would possibly be able to afford it (most of the older vampires), but I doubt that there are enough agents to spread out across the world.
That being said, maybe some sort of special mission in Europe? Vampires retreating to the homeland etc. Not that we'll let that happen without a fight.

Hmm... perhaps a special mission, like once in a blue moon rare, would be interesting. But it'd need to be one of those things we do only rarely, and it'd have to be very well thought out.

Yeah, I was thinking it might come under some emergency. Maybe some emergency in some European country where the US FVZA is called in because local authorities fail. I don't see how we could fit our Order characters in, however, so it would probably have to be a zombie mission. Unless the Order makes a huge strike at a small country (Luxembourg, anyone?) and calls in as many vampires as possible from all around the globe. Whatever, you and Templar are the mods, so you have the power.

Hmm... not a bad idea. A mass invasion by vampires, or zombies being planted by vampires. That could make for an interesting scenario.

I only posted the bare bits of the idea. I have the whole thing up here *taps head*. Drop me a PM if you want to use it all.
I estimate we would need about, say, 300-400 active members on the forum to be able to spread out into Europe. I don't think it would actually go that well though, because we'd have a limited space for mission both in the US and Europe, and we can't just continually bring NPCs in because both sides would obviously suffer major attrition over time, and PC's would need a relevant reason to move.
