OlivedrabiaThat was amazing rp smh

We going on vacation?

Deliberating over the recent events in Astoniland, a nation which has greatly helped Serbatiya in it's past war, the Serb government considers a small intervention a duty in order to protect Serb populace there that has just barely migrated into Sotnian isles and repay the debt that Astoniland has placed on Serbatiya. Serb government has hence forth taken these measures: Special units of Chetnik Corps numbering 2000 men, the most elite Serbatiya has to offer, the People's Militia numbering 4000 men who have experience in handling rebellions and guerilla fighters such as the case in Krayina. But along with this 2000 members of regular Serb People's Army, veterans from Krayina war, as well as 2000 Astonilander volunteers whom were a part of foreign legions who participated in Krayina war and have experience both from recent war and in Astoniland itself. Total strenght numbering 10.000 men. They are to be sent to Astoniland capital first to meet up with local troops before making their way to Sotnian isles to help quell the rebellion and rescue Serb civilians from potential slaughter.

Along with the troops, the Serb government is also going to send leftover weapons from Krayina war. Everything from repeaters, bolt-action rifles and pump-action shotguns along with proper ammunition. If the conflict drags on for longer period the government considers option of sending in experimental sub-machine guns and semi-automatic rifles to test them out on actual battlefield for when they are ready for proper use. The expeditionaries legion will simply be called Serb Foreign Legion, and for when they return they will return with more experience which will be put in proper use for back home...

Kiss the sea breeze

With increased interaction with across-the-world countries, the Serb state has decided to commission construction of new naval ships to protect it's trading vessels and the country's surrounding waters. Namely the ships that are commissioned are: 1 dreadnought battleship, 5 protected cruisers and 5 torpedo boats. Construction of these vessels is estimated to be completed by years 1902 or 1903.

Dissidents in the Army

Ulysses Jacobson and Cale Allsebrook are probably the most loyal generals in all of Kerris' army. They've been with him ever since the revolution happened, and have so far, passed all loyalty tests that they have done. But a mere loyalty test means nothing if you hide secrets, and that's exactly what they're doing. Both men are actually the opposite of loyal, they're simply there because they wanted the career and the money, they're Machiavellians, and they're proud of it. They will do anything to further their own goals, even if it's at the expense of a person or the whole nation. But well, if these men are not what they seem, then what are they?

Ulysses Jacobson is a devout Oremian and secretly a staunch supporter of the Brotherhood of Deus. He has helped the terrorist organization by giving confidential information about Outremerian supply lines in the war and important targets that are potentially strike-worthy. He has been a general for a long time, and to avoid being potentially killed by the Social Nationalists, he swore loyalty to Kerris when the revolution occurred. He along with other influential "Old Guard" generals have done this to avoid being purged, and one of those other men is his best friend, Cale Allsebrook.

Cale Allsebrook is ideologically the complete opposite of his comrade. He's a staunch Anarcho-Syndicalist and was a member of the National Confederation of Labour, the most influential anarchist organization before it was banned and forced underground by the Kerris administration. He's a supporter and friend of fellow anarchist Harrison Kemp-Welch, and he helped the man secretly escape to Olivedrabia when the revolution happened. He's the most daring out of the two, and has often been in close-call situations while covertly aiding his leftist brothers, but so far, he hasn't been caught and will continue to aid them until the true revolution is accomplished.

While both generals are completely politically opposite of each other, they have agreed to do an alliance due to similar goals, that being, somehow overthrowing the Kerris regime. They hope that due to Kerris' brute attitude, the war will go against him, and when the time is ripe, they will strike and save the nation from this brutal regime and bring forth a new era of peace and democratic values....or at least that's the plan.

The wild chase

In the recent weeks, the advancing communist forces used their time and the tactical retreat of the fascist troops in order to fortify and organize their troops. The terribly failed offensives, which resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths, ravaged the strength and the organization of the People’s Liberation Army, which, in some areas, terribly lacked things as essential as food and rations. The slow, but steady advance of the communist troops only worsened the situation in part, as the railways and roads have been destroyed by the retreating rival troops, but the top military generals and the Chairman himself wanted the conflict to be over as fast as possible. However, the more rational military personnel of the People’s Liberation Army were aware that they will, at one point, encounter very strong resistance from the rival army, and therefore argued that first the re-organization of the troops is essential in order to maintain the advantage of the Socialist Republic in the civil war.

Meanwhile, the National Army was retreating slowly, leaving very little supplies and munition behind, only to slow the rival army. Over the last months, predicting a communist advance, the National State has been focusing on a project named “アイアンライン” (Or “Iron Line”), which involved the building of latest-generation forts and trenches along an established line of hundreds of kilometers, in order to prevent the push of the People’s Liberation Army and potentially to strike back with a counter-attack. As the communists were pushing, the line was ready for the red human wave that would strike it.

In the south, the things did not slow down even one bit, as the bombing along the Nipokkoa river continued on both sides. It is estimated that the military infrastructure along the river is completely ruined, and after months of bombing, this should not be a surprise. Despite the treaty of collaboration between the organizations, the use of cluster bombs continued on both sides. Moreover, the war has brought a new premiere, the use of the Phosphorus bomb, a deadly gas bomb that is highly inflammable, causes plenty of damage when inhaled and can cause damage to the eyes if too close, inflicting temporary or even permanent blindness. The bomb was first used by the National Army on the 1st of March on a military convoy of the People’s Liberation Army that was advancing near the north of the city. Most of the soldiers in the convoy either died due to the gas, being burnt alive of inhaling it, or are severely injured.

Kill the snakes

Ever since the beginning of the war, the National-Socialists, despite having a disadvantage, played their cards better. The party behind the Ueshidese fascist movement initially had very close ties to the communist movement, as the leader of the party himself was initially a vocal communist. Thus, the fascists managed to build a network of spies inside the party even since before the war, as the communists slowly grew to become their rivals. After the war started, the National State was able to also infiltrate the ranks of the rival army, often holding many pieces of information regarding the organization and logistics of the enemy division before the battle, along with information regarding the positioning of the troops during bombing campaigns, explaining the wild success of the National Army in their bombing campaigns along the Nipokkoa river. Over time, the enemy’s superiority began to raise question signs regarding the loyalty of the enemy generals and troops, especially when the telegram communication of a People’s Liberation Army lieutenant towards the enemy troops was revealed. The lieutenant was executed for treason, and suddenly, everything began to make sense for the communist troops. This discovery led to a full-on purge of the suspected communist troops, ordered by the Chairman Nishusi Tamurai himself, despite the objections from the top military personnel, who argued that it would halt the growing morale. The executions of the suspected members were very chaotic, as plenty of times completely innocent soldiers were killed. The terrorizing purge led to thousands deserting from the army, some of them ending up on the National State side and taking up arms for them.

Project “黒スズメ”

Even though it was a statement that many in the National State did not see with good eyes, it was obvious they were losing. Despite the massive number of casualties inflicted to the rival side, the fascists were slowly pushed to the more mountainous area of the nation, where the military infrastructure was obviously much harder to operate. Among the many plans to defeat the Socialist Republic was the “シークレットウェポンプログラム” (Secret Weapon Program), which was focused on developing new weapons that would potentially revolutionize warfare and, upon developing, would help the National State defeat the communist forces. Despite its potential succes, the Program was thrown at the bottom of a large drawer and forgotten there for many months. That, until the young scientist Misiyoku Kotora presented his new flying prototype to the military heads of the National State, which were very impressed and already were thinking of a use of the plane, in order to damage enemy troops, by attaching a machine gun to the plane. However, the overall structure of the plane needs to be modified, in order to be safer and capable of longer flights. The engineers of the National Army are working side by side with Kotora in order to develop a second version of the prototype, while a hundred versions of the first prototype have been ordered to train potential new pilots. The subproject ended up being called 黒スズメ (Black Sparrow) by its inventor, Kotora.

The Land in Our Control
Or so we thought...

The Valedorian Army won many battles along the border. The 2nd Armeo divided its forces and rushed inland, encircling smaller Rhomanian troops and capturing various strategic locations in the west. The Valedorians have made many successes; however, the fighting still rages on, and the supply line from the north is becoming overstretched. As a result, troop movements have slowed significantly. The west may be in occupation by the end of the season, after which military commanders can hunker down in the province, seeing the disparity between army sizes. The Valedorian Armies relied on speed for the initial attack, but its forces proved temporarily inferior to the enemy resistance. Defensive positions will be taken up in the plains and near the mountainous far west until reinforcements can arrive.

In the fields of battle, the enemy used chemical weaponry to stall the invasion: phosgene gas. Valedorian soldiers have already begun calling it "Sufoka Morto," or the choking death, a characteristic of its effects on the lungs. Valedori did not anticipate the use of chemical warfare in isolated Rhomania; thus, defenses against it are inadequate for now. Dozens of soldiers have already been killed due to its usage in Rhomanian artillery shells.

The invasion proves initially successful, but unsustainable. We must hold off for now.

Propaganda and Economy

Since the beginning of the war, the Ministry of Peace has made propaganda and security the two main priorities in Valedori. Across the country, posters depicting Olivedrabians as pigs are displayed. Citizens are encouraged to distrust anyone they know to be of Gladian descent. On loudspeakers and radios, citizens are fed exaggerated information about the war effort, including descriptions of the triumph of Valedorian soldiers. The Valedorian flag is flown over every building of every city. By the decree of Duriton Chenarel, the expression of foreign culture in public is forbidden, to promote national unity and boost morale. With the reality that the war will be long and grueling, the Ministry of Economy has issued war bonds to help raise funds to sustain the war effort. Rationing is soon to be implemented.

"As expected, there are dissenters among the general population. Whether in public or secret, they voice their distaste for this war of ideology. We cannot allow this to continue. Find them, round them up, and remove those bad apples from our glorious produce. Destroy the Gladians, and any others who attempt to oppose our grand undertaking. Strong morale demands absolute obedience. Hail Chenarel."

-Treher Lafiant, Minister of Peace.

The Dismounted Crusaders of the East, marching and greeted with joyful smiles and praise from local rallies of locale men and women in the Cobbled and kept streets of the Urban center. This presents a good opportunity to establish an excellent first impression upon the true populace of Gladia Superior - The Olivedrabian heartland. To achieve this they have been given a cleaner redesign in Combat uniform - Showcasing the Nation's colors of Coal Grey and Blood red: With fine fur collars, and the prize item adorning all their heads: A standard Ushanka emblazoned with the icon of the Greater West. Their weapons cleaned, their boots shined, their postures and form rigorously perfected - And of course a strict blanket rule to respect the customs and locale traditions of the people.

Ignore the war. Look at our mainland!
In an attempt to keep people from paying attention to the current rebellion Astoniland has invested a considerable sum of cash into advertisements abroad and locally, trying to get people to focus on the beautiful nature of Astoniland and the touristic cities, promising fun, games, and safety stating that Astoniland remained untouched by the chaos going on around the globe! But, of course, this ignored the chaos going on in the Stonic Isles.

Not only did it go to the advertisement but also the companies themselves, stating that the best ranked and the most used company would get a prize, that prize being a plot of land on the Western Isles, an excellent hotel in such a place could be a nice place to ski and other rare commodities in Astoniland so many did their best to use the investment to prop up attention into their companies and improving their facilities, some lowering their places due to wartime expenses.

Reports of the war were drowned out by advertisements and good news basically limiting the reports of the Stonic rebellion limited to a few politically aware citizens and the opposition which being honest, was too small to be a nuisance, for now, that's.

A New Warship

With the navy undergoing expansion in response to the war, a new class of warship has been proposed. It is a battleship, but it has diverged heavily from its predecessors. The class does away with the secondary armaments of previous battleships, instead posessing 3 centerline twin 12 inch turrets, as well as 2 wing turrets of the same configuration. This gives her a total armament of 10 12 inch guns, with an 8 gun broadside. She is the first warship of her class to also be powered by steam turbines rather than triple expansion steam engines, also making her the fastest battleship in the world, with a top speed of 21 knots. With a 21,000 ton displacement, she will also be the largest warship upon completion. To flex it's industrial might, the Empire has elected to make construction of the warship as rapid as possible, using the newest techniques, and dedicating a lot of manpower, hoping to go from laying the keel to launching the ship for her inspection in around 5 months. This is not to be standard practice, but the goal is to demonstrate to the world that the Empire can not only make revolutionary ship designs, but also build them quickly. The ship is to be called the INS Audax, and it will revolutionize ship design.

Counter Attack

There they go marching all in step so gay!
Smooth-cheeked and golden, food for shells and guns.
Blithely they go as to a wedding day,
The mothers' sons.

The drab street stares to see them row on row
On the high tram-tops, singing like the lark.
Too careless-gay for courage, singing they go
Into the dark.

With tin whistles, mouth-organs, any noise,
They pipe the way to glory and the grave;
Foolish and young, the gay and golden boys
Love cannot save.

High heart! High courage! The poor girls they kissed
Run with them : they shall kiss no more, alas!
Out of the mist they stepped-into the mist
Singing they pass.

===

On the morning of March 4th, 1901, the quiet Rhomanian countryside was interrupted by the sounds of marching men. They had just moved their entire army by train, and after gathering at the regional capital, they began to march north. Onlookers stood beside the road as they marched, some cheering, while others, some of whom had seen the last war, just watched solemnly, as the column of men, horses, and artillery went past. Carrying through the air were old Gladian marching songs, many dating back to the days of the ancient republic. Spirits are high, and discipline holds, as the Sons of Gladius march to face off against the Western Barbarians. Their destination is the center of the front, with the goal of halting the Valedorian advance, and allow for allied reinforcements to arrive and help to turn the tide of war.

Taking Notice

Olivedrabia was impressed by the Rhomanian use of Phosgene Gas against Valedorian forces, and quickly established its own Chemical Warfare Department. Tasked with researching and developing different kinds of chemical weapons, both to kill and incapacitate, the department is well funded, and staffed with scientists, officers, and analysts alike.

To Kill

While Phosgene is an effective weapon, Olivedrabia feels that it can develop an even more effective chemical weapon based 9n it. While Phosgene is deadlier than Chlorine gas, the denser nature of Phosgene means that the gas does not cover as wide an area. Olivedrabian scientists theorize that, by mixing 1 part Chlorine and 1 part Phosgene, a sufficient mixture of lethality and coverage can be reached. Tests on Phosgene-Chlorine mixtures are to begin immediately.

To Incapacitate

While the obvious benefit of lethal gas attacks make them seem to be the more useful option, many military theorists believe that Tear Gas, if deployed en masse ahead of an Olivedrabian assault, could cause disorder in the enemy lines. Such chemicals are not a new concept, and the Olivedrabian military had started developing them during the latter stages of the Great War, though it was never deployed. With this war shaping up to be more brutal than the last, however, its use has been authorized, and tear gas is being manufactured on an industrial scale.

To Protect

The biggest downside to using chemical weapons is that they are indiscriminate, and will harm both friend and foe. To avoid this, the Chemical Warfare Department has also been tasked with developing a means of protecting Olivedrabian soldiers from aerosolized chemical weapons. Inspiration was taken by various forms of masks employed by miners, industrial workers, and chemists, and the Mark I Gas Mask: an awkward, bulky design, was proposed and approved. The masks have their downsides, however. They don't work against every kind of chemical weapon, and are virtually useless against chemical weapons designed for skin contact rather than inhalation. Nevertheless, production has begun, and it has become standard issue kit for the soldiers.

Ascension of the Heavenly Emperor - Fate Betwixt

Kasirye looked at the bloodied desk that stood before him. He sighed deeply and pushed himself away from the ruined paperwork that sat on its surface. He looked to see an aide cowering in the corner, remaining deathly still as though he could escape detection. Kasirye looked at his revolver and then back to the aide. "What are you still doing here?"

The aide remained silent and stayed still, so Kasirye raised his revolver and turned his iron mask to face the hiding man. "Did you want to follow him?"

The aide whimpered and Kasirye sighed. He lowered his revolver to the ground. "I am not a cruel man, I am not here to kill you. I'm here merely to ensure that this timeline lies secure and that weak men," he turned to the broken window ledge where bloodied stars glinted in the broken window. "Weak men like Texicali won't lead us to ruin again."

"You-you're crazed."

Kasirye leaned forward a bit, causing his mask to take on a red tinge as bloodied sunlight reflected across it. "Is that so? I am a patriot of this great nation, I would do whatever it takes to see it survive and prosper. Assistant to the Premier would you do the same, if you knew what I know?"

The aide finally seemed to gain his bearings, he stood and spread his posture. "What do you know?"

"I know that this timeline is the closest our fair lady has made to that Garden, here on Coldonia we may not have the luxury of the divine but at least there's still embers of hope."

The aide raised an arm. "You really are mad."

"I watched my own death, I was sacrificed at an altar to bring about the end of the world in a time almost the same as ours. Lady Lavosi gave me this second chance to prevent the war against the aberrations from being invoked before its time. Is it madness to preserve the longevity of our world?"

The aide fell silent and Kasirye laughed faintly. His laugh echoed about behind the iron mask. "Now then, I know Parliament is in session so I should go break the news in person. Help me carry our late Premier to there and then I will let you go or you can go the same route as our venerable avatar of weakness."

"You will never reach the Garden, Kasirye."

Kasirye rolled his eyes. "Then at least I'll die knowing that everyone else will, for my actions. Now then, come along."

The aide grumbled but followed Kasirye as he led the way through darkening halls. Rays of sunlight seemed to erase into darkness and statues that had recently bit lit by that brilliant gold were not reduced to cold clay and marble. Kasirye paid this no mind, even as one statue, a statue of Lavosi, seemed to track them as they walked. The aide whispered a prayer under his breath as they descended through the political office and soon arrived on the ground floor. Kasirye led the way outside and saw that no other soul remained in the area, he raised an eyebrow and then turned to the aide, who spoke. "Everyone else likely fled at that gunshot."

Kasirye nodded. "A shot to be heard around the nation."

The man in the iron mask walked quickly through the central hallway, paying the crystal chandelier above no mind, nor the red carpet that unfurled about him. He looked towards the doors in the distance and strode towards them, the aide leaned towards the right side of the hallway as though he could open a separate door and flee. Kasirye looked back towards the aide. "How bold you are, trying to flee at the first given opportunity."

The aide shook his head. "Why would you think that?"

Kasirye turned to face the aide. "Oh, no reason, I assure you."

He clicked off the safety on his revolver and continued walking, he pushed open the heavy doors and stepped outside. Kasirye held the door as the aide stepped through and he led the way towards the Premier's ruined form.

Texicali's ruined form still lay in the hedges as Kasirye rounded the corner with the aide, no one had spotted it yet. Even as he pointed to the aide, the man grabbed the Premier's form and almost crumbled under his weight. Still, he pressed on and lumbered forth out onto the secluded path that linked the Premier's offices to the Parliamentary Hall. Even now, no one was in sight. The aide raised an eyebrow and Kasirye ignored it, instead of focusing on the warbling tendrils of mist that thrashed sporadically about them. Their destination seemed to recede before them as the mist thickened, yet still, they walked in silence, and seemingly in naught.

The aide spoke. "Does it not seem that the road is rising up to meet us?"

Kasirye replied instantly. "Does it not seem that the wind is at our backs?"

The aide raised an eyebrow but did not respond. He continued lumbering along the misty path until something seemed to corporealize before him. An old building built in the Abyssal style. Non-euclidean pillars made of fallen meteors rose before them and the main hall stood just behind them. Kasirye looked about and saw only one security officer standing there, leaning against a pair of meteorite doors that had had abyssal symbology etched from head-to-toe. A latticework of endless seams stretching outwards in the Lavosian ensign, among other such symbols lined those doors. Kasirye raised his revolver and fired once into the mist.

The shot flew true and the security officer collapsed bonelessly to the ground, were it not for the deafening echo of the bullet, it could almost be considered quiet.

The aide gritted his teeth then spoke, shifting the weight of the Premier's ruined form about his shoulders. "You wanted to let everyone know we were here?"

Kasirye turned an impassive face to the aide. "Yes."

He stepped to the front doors and placed his ears to them. The aide cursed. "What are you doing? I'm not going to sit here forever, this weight is killing me."

"Then that'll make two."

The aide looked to the security guard. "Surely you mean three?"

He pointed to the security guard and Kasirye simply looked away and focused on the conversation inside.

Voices fluttered weakly through the heavy doors. "And I tell you, in these times what we need is a strong leader!"

Another voice called from far away. "What we need is to believe in the democratic institutions that have served us and our ancestors faithfully!"

Another spoke "Order, order!"

Kasirye raised a hand and put a hand on the door, preparing to throw it open.

"A leader is someone who can put himself before others, and is willing to be thrown onto the floor of destiny, if only for the sake of his people!"

Kasirye threw open the door and stepped inside. The aide followed quickly, still struggling with Texicali's ruined form.

Kasirye looked about, seeing the wizened old men arguing amongst each other. He looked as a revolving staircase spun ever upwards at the center of the floor and the elderly politicians sat about it, watching it spin towards the higher levels of the Parlimanetry Hall. The floor fell silent as Kasirye strode across the parliamentary hall and left a trail of blood in his wake as the aide lumbered forth. The politicians remained silent as Kasirye reached for the spiralling staircase and stepped onto it, with the aide in tow. The two men began to ascend. Kasirye remained silent until the pair had ascended to match the height of the bookshelves which lined the walls. "Gentlemen of the assembly, behold, a leader!"

He looked towards the aide and grabbed Texicali's ruined form and threw it off the staircase. "Az-Bandai cannot survive under such weak leadership, gentlemen we need an Emperor!"

One of the politicians shouted. "As I've said! We must build firmer institutions, one with legacy!"

"Here, here!"

The vast majority of politicians remained silent, some looked away in disgust as though they could not bring themselves to look at Texicali's fallen form. A few brave souls shouted. "You monster, did you do this?"

"Who's supposed to become Emperor? Yourself?"

Kasirye spread both his arms wide as he ascended up the spiral staircase. "Gulivan."

The politicians looked toward each other. "Richard Gulivan..."

Kasirye smiled. "Emperor Richard Gulivan, the first to his name! Long may he reign!"

The politicians remained silent and Kasirye gave a maniacal smile. "Emperor Richard Gulivan, the first to his name! Long may he reign!"

"I shall serve as Premier and the Emperor shall court the course of this nation, a glorious new future indeed."

The politicians looked to Texicali's ruined form then to Kasirye who had now reached the height of the windows near the end of the spiral staircase. He was bathed in the light of an ethereal glow and his movements seemed to be traced by pure benevolence. None could withstand that image, even if they knew it not to be true. "Emperor Richard Gulivan!"

"For Az-Bandai, and the Heavenly Emperor!"

"The Heavenly Emperor, Richard Gulivan!"

Kasirye's blood ran cold as he listened to the title.

We Cannot Ignore This War!

In the Republic of Deskhs and Slovs, the government and the general public are at odds. News of Astonilandian and Serbatiyan troops moving to crush the Sotnian rebellion has inflamed public opinion and brought the minority Revanczist faction's political influence to a new level. Some of the country's leading newspapers print highly-embellished stories of innocent Sotnian women being molested by the dark-skinned brutes of the infamous Kolonial Trope, further driving public opinion toward an armed response. In the republic's western ports, overly-eager volunteer militias have taken to performing weapon drills with improvised wooden rifles in the streets, hoping for the chance to retake the Isles and liberate their former brothers.

In spite of the overheated rhetoric from the revanczists, the Deskoslovakian government is taking a much more measured approach. Under the direction of Foreign Minister Josef Prometyan, the Astonilandian request for non-intervention is taken very seriously. The republic's geographic proximity and access to large weapon stockpiles puts it in a position to decide the fate of the entire rebellion- the rebels have openly admitted that they are depending on Deskh support to drive the occupiers from their lands. Prometyan instructs two secret diplomatic cables to be prepared - one to Astoniland, one to Serbatiya. These messages are intended to help peacefully resolve the bloodshed in the Sotnian Isles through international cooperation.

However, orders are also quietly issued to prepare a limited mobilization in the tragic event of a war. Furthermore, the Channel Squadron of the republic's undersized navy has been put at the highest level of readiness.

Oh, What A Lovely War

All Deskoslovakians welcome the exploits of Valedori's army in New Rhomania as the hated easterners are driven back by Valedorian courage and steel. The national press decries the use of toxic gases by New Rhomania as a crime against humanity and a new nadir of Gladian degeneracy. Some of the more radical revanczists even try to enlist as volunteers in the Valedorian army, although the government officially discourages this practice. Yet, despite the Deskoslovakian people's sympathies with the Allied powers, the republic reiterates its neutral stance and remains uninvolved in any official capacity.

If They Strike, We Do Too!

While we have chemical weapons of our own, we've never used them in actual combat. The only time our chemicals have been used was in Astoniland, which was by a foreign government. But with recent news of Olivedrabian usage of such weapons, we cannot be left behind in such a vulnerable state. We must use weapons of this type ourselves, even if it is cruel, but really, who cares about cruelty? The Ministry of Defence's Pharmaceutical Corps has synthesized and started producing new and revolutionary chemicals that will surely aid us in combat. Out of the many newly-created chemicals, two stand out due to their high toxicity and deadliness:

Propan-2-yl methylphosphonofluoridate/C4H10FO2P, more commonly known as Treox (named after its creators Alain Trézel, Curtis Reckord, Jean-Louis Echochard, and Abel Oxley) is an extremely toxic synthetic organophosphorus compound. The colourless, odourless gas/liquid has been designated as a chemical weapon due to its extreme potency as a nerve agent. Exposure is lethal even at deficient concentrations, where death can occur within one to ten minutes after direct inhalation of a lethal dose, due to suffocation from respiratory paralysis. No cure is known to exist. The first Treox tests on dissidents have fetched positive results, and the weapon has been authorized to be used against Olivedrabian targets.

Chlorine Trifluoride, nicknamed "The Devil's Water" is a colorless, poisonous, corrosive, and extremely reactive gas that condenses to a pale-greenish yellow liquid when pressurized at room temperature. While commonly used in certain industries, it has recently been investigated for its potential military use. In tests against dissidents and animals such as cows, it has been demonstrated to be an extremely effective and deadly incendiary and poison weapon. Targets catch on fire and completely explode in just a matter of seconds when in contact with the liquid while surrounding targets that weren't wiped out by the initial explosion are killed due to the poisonous gas the substance exudes.

We've also started producing a gas mask of our own, but just like the Olivedrabian design, it is rather bulky and completely useless against certain weapons.

In the Republic of Deskhs and Slovs, the government and the general public are at odds. News of Astonilandian and Serbatiyan troops moving to crush the Sotnian rebellion has inflamed public opinion and brought the minority Revanczist faction's political influence to a new level. Some of the country's leading newspapers print highly-embellished stories of innocent Sotnian women being molested by the dark-skinned brutes of the infamous Kolonial Trope, further driving public opinion toward an armed response. In the republic's western ports, overly-eager volunteer militias have taken to performing weapon drills with improvised wooden rifles in the streets, hoping for the chance to retake the Isles and liberate their former brothers.

In spite of the overheated rhetoric from the revanczists, the Deskoslovakian government is taking a much more measured approach. Under the direction of Foreign Minister Josef Prometyan, the Astonilandian request for non-intervention is taken very seriously. The republic's geographic proximity and access to large weapon stockpiles puts it in a position to decide the fate of the entire rebellion- the rebels have openly admitted that they are depending on Deskh support to drive the occupiers from their lands. Prometyan instructs two secret diplomatic cables to be prepared - one to Astoniland, one to Serbatiya. These messages are intended to help peacefully resolve the bloodshed in the Sotnian Isles through international cooperation.

However, orders are also quietly issued to prepare a limited mobilization in the tragic event of a war. Furthermore, the Channel Squadron of the republic's undersized navy has been put at the highest level of readiness.

Oh, What A Lovely War

All Deskoslovakians welcome the exploits of Valedori's army in New Rhomania as the hated easterners are driven back by Valedorian courage and steel. The national press decries the use of toxic gases by New Rhomania as a crime against humanity and a new nadir of Gladian degeneracy. Some of the more radical revanczists even try to enlist as volunteers in the Valedorian army, although the government officially discourages this practice. Yet, despite the Deskoslovakian people's sympathies with the Allied powers, the republic reiterates its neutral stance and remains uninvolved in any official capacity.

War Crimes

Seeing the reports of war crimes in Stonic lands(and a opportunity to make more alliances with Deskoslovakia), we will send supplies,oil and some weapons(and even a Mikasja ship) to the Stonic islands separatists, we also freeze assets of Astoniland due to their war crimes and accuse them of censoring the media and war reports.

To justificate our intervention,we show the 1st cape of 1 Deskslovakian newspaper and 2 Astonilander oppositionist newspapers telling about the mass rapes,burning of Stonic towns and execution of Stonic people,and also telling about how the Astonilander government is censoring and bribling the media to not tell about the war and the crimes made by their army on Stonic islands.

Our Interests Threatened? Nothing A Coup Can't Solve!

Seeing as the viperous Astonilanders have completely betrayed us and our allies, we can't obviously stand such an action. We hold key assets in Astoniland due to long-term military and economic investment in their archipelagos and said assets are being threatened by the Olivedrabian sphere of influence due to them being able to peacefully bring the Astonilanders into their fold. To counteract this move in this big game of chess, we have approached the Kolonial Trope, the most feared in the Astonilander army, about a potential offer, a very bloody one. Seeing as we have similar interests and a deeply rooted alliance due to the constant aid we've given them, we have proposed a potential coup carried out by the Kolonial Trope, in the process, putting a friendly regime that is ideologically similar in these strategically-positioned islands.

We have offered the Trope various things, such as constant, uninterrupted military funding, rapid industrialization of the islands, and further investment into civilian infrastructure. In return, the Kolonial Trope will adopt our glorious Social Nationalist ideology and practically become a puppet of ours. We've also guaranteed full protection by our navy in case the Olivedrabians decide to react to the coup, which they most likely will. While this coup can bring us a new ally into our ever-expanding Concordat, it is also rather risky, and we are putting our relations with Astoniland on the line in case the coup fails or gets discovered. But hopefully, that'll not be the case, and we can make another nation see the true light of national salvation.

The Best Way to help Deskslovakia

The Talks about the intervention in Sotnic Islands in the Marinokonese Rada were chaotic,with some against,some in favour,but what atracted the attention of the grand-princess and the prime minister was one group,this group defended that we could sove it with a coup

This plan was accepted...

The plan is contact an Astonilander General,brible him to be loyal to Marinokoni and ask him to coup,and purge the Kolonial Trope,the general would surrender Sotnic Islands to Deskoslovakia in excharge of the Deskhs allying with me....

The Reply from the Embassy

While the Rhomanian Front with Valedori begins to slow down, due to chemical attacks and overstretched supply lines on the side of Valedori, the Rhomanian Government begins a new wave of propaganda, largely aimed at those who support Haute-Outremer and Valedori. Most prominently, the Rhomanian Embassy in Deskoslovakia decries their press, citing their 'attempt at moralism from the sidelines', after they declared the use of Phosgene gas as a 'crime against humanity'. The diplomat went on to claim the usage of chemical weapons was out of a necessary force for the defense of Rhomania, not of desire for cruelty. Furthermore, the diplomat claimed, if the Valedorians did not want to face death, they should not have invaded.

To my esteemed New Rhomanian colleague,

It is regrettable that the recent headlines have offended your sensibilities. Deskoslovakia's considerable pharmaceutical industry could perhaps offer some products to alleviate your emotional distress.

this isn't canon, it's just banter

Pee pee poo poo

We told you to screw off!
The blockade on the Stonic Isles had been rudely interrupted by a horrifying sight. Cargo ships and a whole military-grade ship approached the islands with the navy demanding they turned around. Many refused, with only a few going back after seeing the actual number of heavily armed ships aiming their weapons at them, including but not limited to ironclads and old Deskoslovakiain vessels captured during the GCW, a show of force perhaps.

Seeing this, the navy tried to keep them busy while another one approached from behind, this would, of course, be very costly oil wise but hoped it would be worth it seeing the sheer number of ships and the chances of striking the jackpot were too good, if the tactic was successful the ships would have nowhere to run and would be forced to surrender but if they fired back this would prove quite the diplomatic incident for Astoniland and might cause war, but who really cares about war?

Boarding ships were also readied, preparing to use the same tactics they used to take over those Deskoslovakian ships, the boarding ships were painted black or blue on the top to make them harder to spot from high heights sometimes a Maxim gun was prepared on the ship, and the crew depended on the size going from 4 men to 16 men. While yes small there were many of them preparing to take over and capture the ships armed with Serb shotguns, Molotovs, and revolvers they were ready to take over and check to prepare themselves for any resistance to be dealt with. With deadly force.

If any contraband was found it would be seized and either used to pay for the trip back or sent back depending on if any guns were found, while the military ship would simply be seized and sent back to the mainland to be torn apart and analyzed maybe ransomed if Marinokoni or anyone else was willing to buy their ships back, and the crews of this ships would be arrested and interrogated by Military Police, whom by the way were known to be particularly rough having survived both the Expansion Wars and the GCW, after that, they may be sent to their homeland.

May i have a cocktail, please?

The Serb Foreign Legion has finally arrived in Astoniland capital. As they get off the ships they are welcomed by the joyfull locals whom shower them with gifts and play music to welcome their fellow brothers and sisters from the far-east. Wasting no time, it is agreed the Serb Foreign Legion will be led by an Astonilander commander due to them having more experience in Astoniland itself however any action or order that crosses with Serb code of honor will be disobeyed no questions asked.

In reply to Deskoslovakian telegram, the Serb Commite of Foreign Relations has consulted with Milosh on how to respond to this, and after a brief deliberation a telegram in return has been written, stating:

To our fellow colleagues in Deskoslovakia.

It is rather disturbing to think that we are in Astoniland to further promote violence and bloodshed. On the contrary we also seek that this conflict be ended in a quick and effective manner without blood being spilled. As you may know the Republic of Serbatiya and Astoniland are two nations that are actively engaging in cultural exchange program, as a result we have our own people on those isles that we wish to protect. You have our guarantee, that Serb Foreign Legion will behave in honorable manner with dignity and will not harm any civilian during the duration of this conflict. We understand your fears but as Serb People's Army and People's Militia have proved time and time again before, the safety of your countrymen is not endangered when it comes to Serb Foreign Legion presence there. We ourselves are willing to open any talks to bring peace to this conflict and listen to your proposals on how to end it, but we will not pull out of Astoniland till our own people there are safe from the conflict.
