Abstract: The date is 480 B.C.. It is a lovely day as each of you go about daily life in your glorious city states. But the beauty of Helios and sweet breath of Anemoi cannot take your mind of the peril that is the tyrant king Xerxes. He is beginning the campaign once started by his father so conquer and rule the Greek city states with an iron fist. The Spartans have begun their Battle at Thermopylae. Hopelessly outnumbered they are the only thing standing in between you and the massive Persian army. The greatest politicians, leaders, thinkers, and warriors of the time have gathered today to decide what must be done. Should Greece fight or surrender? Is an alliance between the city states possible? What is the best course of action if battle is chosen? These are among the many questions you will answer in a day that will decide the history of Greece, and the entire World. May Zeus and the gods be merciful.
Letter from the Chair: Noble leaders of Greece, My name is Tommy Colitsas and I am pleased to be your head chair at SouthMUNC! I am a sophomore here at South and I am so excited my idea for this committee was put into motion! This will no doubt be one of the strangest and most intriguing committees you have ever been a part of. It will function as a specialized committee, as everything passed will come from draft resolutions, but there will be many crisis updates along the way. However, the draft resolutions you pass will have a direct impact on the war. This means essentially you have portfolio powers as a group, but no power to act individually. A little about myself, I wrestle and play tennis and also participate in debate and mock trial at South. I love chilling with my friends and watching movies. I don’t wanna create any type of stress for you guys, and my goal is to run a genuinely fun committee. If committee is moving too fast, too slow, or if you guys just want a break at any time during the day just let me know. Also please email me with any questions you have about the brief, your character, or how I plan on running committee. Best of luck in defending Greece, do what you deem necessary to keep the people alive. Sincerely, Tommy Colitsas
