RP: Full Mobilization
Today, apparently in response to Nonadias hostilities towards the nation of Demira in support of Rekken, the military has begun preparations for full mobilization. Airbases across the country are being put on high alert as the army reserves are being called to arms, gathering at military bases and awaiting orders, with the expectation by the end of the year the reserves will be fully mobilized. The carrier fleet currently operating in the sea of Pontricare has been recalled to the main port of Sol Vitorri, along with all 162 deepwater combat ships in the Imperium Navy. They are to depart eastward to link up with Icewindian, Blayredeshian and Demiran naval forces in the seas of Helandriel and Letanrica to combat Nonadain forces and stop their warships from firing upon the shores or landing troops in support of Rekken. Naval forces are expected to arrive within a week with the carrier fleet expected to arrive a few days after the bulk force. A standardized income tax has been announced as a temporary measure, with expectations that the economy will suffer during the war. A variety of 600 or so A22 Mk3 Multirole fighters armed with ASW weapons have been dispatched to begin operations in the sea of Helandriel, seeking to engage the Nonadian forces, using airbases in Blayredeshia and mid-air refueling to reach the area. The Sol Invictus Aleksandre Mikhov II held a press conference earlier, in which he directly attacked Nonadia for their decision, with the statement,"The Nonadian cowards and their idiotic king whose name isn't even worth saying have made their last mistake. Atraland and Blayredeshia have faithfully defended Nonadia as a member of The Nationalist League for well over a decade now, and this is how they repay us. They have chosen a path of subversion to the greater cause of nationalism and will be exterminated like the rats they are. If Nonadians value their nation and their lives, they should surrender now, because this transgression will be repaid in full should they continue down this path.". Following these heated words, the Head of Press Petir Datur has announced that a total trade embargo has been leveled against Nonadia, and that if their forces have not surrendered to the Nationalist League by the time the Imperium Navy reaches the seas of Helandriel and Letanrica that a state of total and open hostilities will exist between the Solis Imperium and Nonadia. Following this news, multiple lucrative government contracts for the mass production of various cruise missiles and long-distance bombers have been posted, along with hundreds of smaller contracts for the procurement or production of various items to supply infantry and armored forces, with stock callers encouraging investments in various weapons companies across Atraland. It seems the true winner of this entire war will be the military-industrial complex.
RP: Swamplands forming
Following the deforestation of much of the south of Atralands sprawling jungles, the flatter southwest has seen a sudden rise in the early formations of what eco biologists have predicted will one day be swamp and wetlands. Large lakes have begun to form as rainfall remains at the same rate as when it was a jungle, however without large trees to soak up the rain, it has taken to pooling and saturating the ground. Imperial mining operations in the region have reported an increase in mud and cave-ins, with conditions worsening. Invasive Pevery trees, a type of mangrove, have begun sprouting up in the region. Also of note is the new wildlife forming around the new wetlands, with the South Moselyian Bullfrog migrating northwards from the southernmost extent of Atraland and moving into the region. Reports of the Bekir Crocodile have also been present in the region, the nearly extinct beast being considered critically endangered due to hunting and deforestation, seems to have found a new home in the wetlands.
RP: A Reasonable Price for a Life
Today the Sol Imperium finally reached out to the newly formed government of Slozvekkania, marking the first communication between Atraland and its former city-states in over a decade since the bloody ethnoreligious conflict that was the Fourth Atralandian Civil War kicked them out for good and killed the vast majority of the minority populations. A price has been set for the freedom of the 134,000 Slozvek and Akzvanian slaves currently held in prison by the Solis Imperium. Slozvekkania will have tp pay 100 Arctoes per slave, for a total cost of 13.4 million Arctoes. The Solis Imperium has notified Kemonomica of this, respecting Slozvekkanias request that Kemonomica mediates.
Evacasia had only been a member of the NL for a year, and it already faced a dilemma over continued membership.
Evacasia and Nonadia have been historically close for almost a century. Through the different regimes and hardships faced, Nonadia had served as the nation's only continuous ally, providing aid of all forms no matter the struggle. Although at times a strained relationship, Kaiser August wasn't keen on severing relations and placing embargoes as Blayredeshia had ordered the NL to do. It was a stab in the back, he thought.
The opposing option was equally beneficial, however. Such a young Empire as Evacasia needed to stand by powerful allies, using them as a shield until it could act independently. The NL could serve such a purpose, and serve it well. After all, a history had also been had with the alliance, albeit for a lesser period of time. The dilemma could be boiled down into a choice over comradery, or cupidity.
From the beginning, honour had played a huge role in Imperial society. It was described as Ernst von Hindenburg to be the 'core of Evacasia', the guiding principle in decision making. To betray a faithful ally, be they a nation, ideology, or person, is to betray oneself. August recognised this, as did his cabinet, and as did the Evacasian people.
- "The actions and statements of the NL's leaders are a disgrace to honour and integrity. They refer to our trustworthy colleagues in Nonadia as 'cowards', as 'idiots'. These people value not respect, but their own greed and power. They are blinded by it. Evacasia cannot stand with them, Evacasia does not belong with the NL.
We wished for our future to align with this alliance, but it clearly does not. It aligns with our loyal and truehearted comrades in Nonadia.
Evacasia hereby rescinds its membership of the Nationalist League. We will not partake in any ongoing wars, but we cannot allow our Empire to fall into such a dishonourable group of nations."
RP: Land Ho!
Ships flying The Gardurlands naval jack would be seen approaching the Nonadian Isles from the Sea of Letanrica. As the ships approached they would begin to break off into separate battle groups. One of the groups would take position around Topago in order to block the north mouth of the straight. The other two groups would begin to continue south in the straight towards San Lata.
Admiral Øymann would begin to try and contact the Nonadians through radio
Adm Øymann:" This is Admiral Øymann of the Gardurlands Imperial Navy requesting to speak to Nonadian authorities in San Lata."

If the nation listed above does not post an In-Character message within 48 hours, they will be removed from the map.
RP: International Troubles
The Schwypian government looks to the west and sees the increasing tensions between Nonadia and TNL in regards to the current state of affairs in Rekken. First and foremost, Prime Minister Hethwyr speaks out against the actions of the Nationalist League, which Schwypia sees, once again, as making imperialist advances on other, insubordinate nations. "When they are undermined, their natural instinct is to throw their weight at the problem," PM Hethwyr said directly. The Prime Minister, as well as the Queen, make an appeal to both sides of the struggle by inviting them to, as of now, neutral Schwypia to hold dialogues to prevent an all out war outside of Rekken. The Prime Minister states that the affairs in Rekken should run their course unimpeded by outside forces, as the result will be the natural will of the nation.

RP: Arrival in the Sea of Helandriel
Today all 162 warships and carriers of the deepwater fleet of Atraland have arrived in the Sea of Helandriel. They've begun movements to link up with Blayredeshias fleet and a small detachment of helicopters launched from the helicopter carriers coupled with the 600 A22 Mk3 multirole fighters have begun extensive patrols to locate Nonadain forces in the area. The last warning has today been broadcast to Nonadia, stating "You are offered a last chance to undo these wrongs. Pull your navy from Helandriel and cease combat with TNL forces. This message will not be sent again.".
RP: Atraland Accepts
The Atralandian government has accepted the offer to go and discuss the ongoing tensions, however, makes it clear that if TNL forces are fired upon, they will withdraw from the meeting and support their allies.
Following the Lirana-Tanda war, Chancellor Gerissen recognised Western Katanga as being rightful Reru Tanda land. He denounced the quote/unquote 'resurgence of Liranaholm imperialism', spiraling Evacasia down a path of economic ruin and societal upheaval. Now, almost a full decade after the incident, Kaiser August I has undone this perceived blunder. The Empire of Evacasia has officially recognised the region of Western Katanga as under the sovereignty of Dwarf Land4.
The Neutrality Act had been all but forgotten. Military buildup was a given, and the recent (albeit short-lived) membership of TNL showed a complete disregard for the Act's effects. However, it was never officially repealed, meaning it was still recognised as Evacasian law. Kaiser August I has therefore repealed the Act in its entirety, ending the final vestige of Republican beliefs in the reformed Evacasian society.
Evacasia accepts the offer of a meeting in Schwypia. With ties to both sides of the dispute, Kaiser August is keen to see a de-escalation of the situation, viewing a war as detrimental to all involved.
Having repealed the Declaration of the Rights of Sentients, and having gotten the Red Cross out of Evacasia, Kaiser August I resumes the reforms he had undertaken. Only a handful of holdovers remained from the Republican days - holdovers which the Empire could finally be rid of. Two final reforms are made:
RP: Surprise Attack
With word reaching Hill that the Concordaian Forces are beginning to cross the Ulken River; he orders the Nationalists to hide in wait nearby until a sizable portion of the Concordaian Army is across the bridge at which point his forces will launch a surprise attack. The goal being to destroy the army while it’s split in two. With his forces in wait General Hill waits for half of the Concordaians to cross at which point he order the attack to begin. Now all that remains is to see how it will play out.
RP: Enraged Demands
The News of Evacasia’s withdrawal over the Nonadian issue was met with fury back in Blayredeshia with many accusing the Kaiserreich of hypocrisy. The Imperial Ministry of State began lambasting the Evacasian justification due to reasons such as “Backing Nonadia’s Imperialist efforts to enforce a Communist regime in Rekken” and debunking the Evacasian claim that embargoing Nonadia for attacking a NL ally such as “dishonorable” due to the fact Demira which had essentially joined the Nationalist League and therefore an ally, and many privately run newspapers across the country began calling Rekken’s socialist and centralized government as a “Rekkenian version of the Heydrich Regime which Evacasia ironically seems to endorse against the Federationist Demirans who have only asked for liberty”. Meanwhile, a more level headed Emperor Blayre IV sent a letter to Kaiser August requesting to meet with him immediately so that the two could act as the “Cooler heads to calm the growing unjust rhetoric in both our realms”. The Emperor has offered to either host August in Blayredeshia or to fly to Evacasia himself.
While many private newspapers in Blayredeshia mocked Prime Minister Hethwyr as a “crypto-socialist more willing to defend the socialist dictatorship in Rekken comparible to the Hunt Dictatorship just to trash on Blayredeshian foreign policy than to aid the pro-democracy Freedom Fighters of Demira”; the Imperial Ministry was more amiable and has agreed to send diplomats and possibly the Emperor himself to Schwypia with the intention to settle a peace agreement and make a case for the Demiran cause.
The mere mention of the Heydrich regime caused uproar among the Kaiser's circle. Drawing a comparison between Evacasia's darkest chapter, and the relatively calm perception of the Rekkenian Imperium, was seen as a disgrace.
Though the Kaiser was not one to disregard diplomacy. Wishing to rescue the rapidly worsening impression of the NL in public eyes, he accepts the meeting, and will fly to Blayredeshia to meet with their Emperor.
The Empire wishes to form relations to our new western neighbor of the Serlain States. We also wish to form relations with the nations of Weccandia, Qatamar, and Nonadia. We wish to form relations due to interests in forming an economic bond with these nations, and to be able to form a political bond with these nations, and to be able to form relations with the Council.
The nation wishes to assist the Socialists of Windardia, though, it seems that the Socialists are corrupt in mind, and does not wish to help the people. We ask Sapy and Moonflower for permission to help the Socialists in Windardia. Although, they must conform to the ideology of Democratic Socialism, and to conform in the belief of democracy. We wish to send supplies and political support to them. May the people of Windardia prosper.
RP: 2nd Meeting.
Queen Mirvelle Marlyn is invited to head to Icewindia to meet Wallace in Person. While War Time Measures are in effect the Icewindian Mainland is safe thanks to the Navy's effort so far. King Regent Wallace is proud of his Daughter's naval ability. Wallace's is bringing a very Special Guest his "Buddy" as he calls him.
RP: Excuse me?
Icewindians are Insulted they are not Invited to the Meeting. Given that Nonadia was once one of its closest ally's as a True and Shinist Nation. Its Rumored ICewindian Government has Nonadian Sympathies within it. Especially King Regent Wallace who has often visited the Nonadian POW's to give them comforts of a home, a Radio and allowing them to Write letters back home uncensored.
However Icewindian Government are a People of Honor and they will continue to Back TNL Alliance to keep there Word.
RP: First Contact?
Icewindia looking at former NL Member wishes to make Formal Contact. Knowing NL is strained with them atm they hope to just set up Relations as just Icewindia and Evacasia.
RP: Not so Plenty of Fish 2
After a few months, Vennos has begun facing a shortage of fish. In some regions of Vennos the prices have already doubled since last year, which got people talking, what can be done about it? Some companies cannot decide what to do, either reach out to overseas fishing corporations or to buy fish from our neighbouring nations to sell for more at home.
RP: Fish Time
Hearing of the shortage, numerous capitalists in charge of the various highly profitable fishing companies across Atraland have begun exporting fish to the nation of Vennos, seeking to establish themselves as the primary fishmongers in the region.
After much discussion, the government of Slozvekkania has officially agreed to pay what they consider an outrageous amount for what they see as their own natural citizens. The 13.4 million Arctoes were transferred today at around noon.
Following the first national elections, a coalition between the National Democratic Socialist Charter and the Slozvek Industrial Party has achieved the majority in the National House of Law, with 68% of the vote. Their chosen High Chancellor, Pertoni Tkon, was confirmed as the new head of state by the Supreme Judiciary this morning. In his confirmation speech, he stated he will focus on building a strong free-market economy in the country while maintaining social programs with a tiered income tax. The following parties make up the rest of the National House of Law, with their percentage of the seats shown to the left and a short description on the right:
10%: Freedom United (Socialist and Leninist coalition)
6%: Akzvanian Tribal Party (Akzvanian interests party, focused on tribal matters and ecological protection)
4%: Slozvek Transhumanist Council (Radical hyper progressive transhumanists and technocrats)
4%: Terra Verde (Akzvanian eco-fascist party)
3%: Workers Coalition (Hardline bolsheviks)
2%: Liberated Earth (Anarchists, largely anti-civ)
2%: Unionists (Anarcho-Syndicalists, also largely anti-civ)
1%: Reintegration United (Fringe coalition of various groups all seeking reunification with Atraland.
RP: Formation of the National Militia
Today the Slozvekannian government has officially formed the National Militia, recruiting from veterans of the Fourth Atralandian Civil War. The National Militia is seeking to grow a force of 100,000 recruits to train. The National Militia will be split 50/50 across the two city-states that form Slozvekannia, with Slozeks defending Slozvechino and Akzvans defending Akzvania. The national government has also announced its plans to begin small-scale construction of various tunnels, underground bunkers, general fortification, and anti-air missile emplacements within and around the two cities to protect them from a potential Atralandian invasion.
RP: Declaration of Union Day
With the first elections held and a head of state chosen, November 1st has been announced to be Union Day, the day where the government of Slozvekkania, a union of the city-states of Slozvechino and Akzvania, was finally formed and solidified as a permanent measure.
(((OORP Date bookmark 01 Nov 2142
Seeing as the Keiser is attempting to avoid having to attack an old ally they would agree to send a diplomat to the meeting. The government is adamant however, that the only deal it is seeking is one where Nonadia ceases to engage TNL forces and ceases to support TNL enemies abroad.
the fardlandian government is in disarray after a series of counter coups. With the original duke in control once more, the populace Is starting to calm down.
RP: reinforced relations
With the offers from Kynthes seen as viable, the government of Qatamar believes that it would be beneficial for an alliance, with little time spared, embassy and consult setups are provided and requests are made to have in the nation. Military base requests have also been made, and Qatamari government has sent wishes for a major military presence from Kynthes to help defend the nation.
RP: Operation "Panssarisopuli"
With the CKG's plan of attacked finally mapped out and the main strike force readied, even with the issue of recon many recon groups who got behind the Rekkenian lines never answering, presumably due to death of said troops, Stormberg would give the order to initiate operation "Panssarisopuli" (common: "Armoured Lemming"), the grand assault against the Rekkenians. The assault would begin with a series of smaller concentrated attacks near the springs of the lesser Demonnia river. This would be done in attempt to distract the Rekkenian mobile defence force and to bind them into a battle giving the CKG's main strike force a much easier time to push through the Rekkenian defences on the Para Steppe.
Three days into the attack the main strike force would launch their assault on the Rekkenian front supported with a total mobilization of the front-line forces who had so far been mostly defending against Rekkenian raids and scouts. Upon the launch of the assault the Super-Heavy Railway artillery would be used to force a hole into the front after which the main force would deal with the rest of the area with the railway artillery concentrating fire elsewhere on the nearby areas of the front.
Regarding the TNL troops on the area, the land forces would be requested to advance the front into Colisser and towards the Demonnia river with the CKG's front-line forces while the Demiran armoured spearhead would attempt to blitz their way to Ganaf. The orders for dealing with hostile pockets of troops would include minimizing losses on both sides as the Rekkenians are expected to surrender once they seer their efforts will lead nowhere.
RP: The Nonadians
Very disappointed of their actions, Stormberg would order her personal guard long with 40 000 Ruvenian reservists to guard the Eastern coast in case of an unlikely invasion. Not possessing a navy she would trust TNL would keep the naval situation sorted out.
Stormberg would also send the Nonadians a public insult, mostly directed at their King a calling the king "a spineless, honourless coward who can't keep the matters of state separate from those of religion siding with an imperialist communist old hag deemed demigod by some rekkenian dude wearing robes and listening to heavy metal" and the people "his unruly hoard of lemmings".
Stromberg would also issue an embargo on Nonadia at least for the time of the war.
Hearing of Qatamar's offer to intervene Sievi would decline the offer seeing such intervention as destructive to the Qatamari people as such a small nation would be very likely to be squished by TNL.
RP: The Heart of the Defence
Whenever near the front, the Blayredeshian bombers would face a large retaliation in form of Rekkenian anti-air guns, both towed and self-propelled. The air defence would not end there as land-to-air missiles, shot by either infantry or the Ömegän sector of the missile defence system would also be in heavy use. After all, the Rekkenian doctrine is built to rely on total land-dominance, lacking a proper navy and airforce and hence having heavy emphasis on defending against hostile airforces and naval landings.
The Rekkenians would not be without casualties however as a good portion of the towed artillery of the front-line troops would take hit from the bombers. This would lead to the destruction of over 200 artillery pieces with a similar number seen on the side of towed anti-air guns. The raids would also cause deaths on the front with ~20 000 dead.
As the Demiran attacks near the Demonnia River would begin, the Rekkenian mobile taskforce would assume defensive positions to repel said attacks. Much like planned by the Demirans, while the Rekkenian mobile taskforce was stuck fighting the smaller, yet concentrated attacks, the CKG would break through the front on the Para plains. This would leave the northern half of the frontline troops encircled and the southern half retreating to a new defensive line between the Demonnia River and Mnt. Jätti, although by the time many of the troops would get to the new line, the Demiran tanks would already be taking down the weak inner defences.
It was at this point the Empress would see the defeat to come and gather the closest and most loyal generals and soldiers of the "Pirun Nyrkki" with her. In secret they would make their escape to the abandoned, mostly forgotten catacombs of Ganaf's old city. This would be a place where in his time, Sievi's father, Reijo Molotow had built unspoken emergency bunkers, quarters and barracks, something Sievi would've taken back under maintenance on her own during the last couple of years due to the regional instability in case she had to go to hiding again- this being exactly what she would do with her group.
The message left behind by the Empress would be found on the throne of Fort Imperia, Ganaf. It would say only the following. "Jos en minä kelpaa niin ottakoon Aht' minut meren iäiseen syleilyyn. Sielt' minä viel' joku päevä pallaan. Hyö ketkä tappaavat uskoa, tieättää näin. -Sievi Reijotar Eerika Molotow" (Common: "If I simply won't do, may Ahti take me into the eternal embrace of the seas. From there I will one day return. Those who believe know so. -Sievi Reijotar Eerika Molotow")
After hearing of the corrupt state of the Windardian socialists the Republic of Moonflower is extremely reluctant to allow Kynthes to support their cause. Congress had voted 33% in favor of supporting them and 66% against supporting them and for this reason Moonflower will not support the Windardian socialists.
The Concordean force was utterly shattered by the ambush by the Nationalist army. While the Concordeans, though experienced and now somewhat familiar with the Windardian theater, where not prepared for a sudden change in tactics by the Nationalists. Despite harsh resistance, the Concordean line was broken and eventually collapsed leading to chaos on the battlefield. A small but sizeable contingent led by Colonel Albrecht Reith was able to make a breakthrough through the Nationalist line but were ultimately pushed back and forced in a rout. Most of the Concordean army caught across the river surrendered, key among the now capitulated elements being multiple armored brigades. Despite the horrendous loss, the remainder of the Concordean military elements in Windardia have been galvanized by the defeat and are still willing to engage the Windardian Nationalists.
Quite possibly the largest of them all is codenamed the 'R-12', Evacasia's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. Spearheaded by the company 'Könige des Meeres', the R-12 is to play a pivotal role in the Empire's future. Evacasia's location of bordering both the Marlandor and Pontricare makes naval efforts a priority, something the R-12 will lead.
Contracted to the company 'Sander', the 'W-1' will serve as one of the most important ground-based projects of them all. It is the development of a new home-grown Main Battle Tank, which is to eventually replace the imported Artaecusian M8, from which it may borrow its design heavily.
For almost 43 years, the Evacasian military had relied almost entirely on foreign designs, primarily those of Artaecus. These designs have served their purpose well thus far, though the continued reliance on non-Evacasian designs has remained a thorn in the side of leadership. Carrying on the philosophy of 'military autarky', pioneered in the Kriegswerke, the Department of Defence has begun reaching out to several Evacasian corporations regarding new equipment. The contracts range from tanks, to destroyers, to everything in between.
Many of the companies involved have served the military before. Major players such as Lehmann Industries, Rückgrat, Streikmeister and others have been taken into secretive talks. Out of all design projects begun, involving modern rifles, APCs, fighter aircraft, bomber aircraft, cruisers, corvettes etc, two stand out as of the upmost importance:
A heavy urgency is placed upon the development of these designs. Having only recently left the AkFed, knowledge gained from close cooperation with its members is still fresh in many's minds.
Still weary to cooperate with Icewindia following their war with Nonadia, the Empire leerily accepts the offer to establish formal contact and relations.
The tense meeting with the Blayredeshian Emperor had come to a close, and the Kaiser made his way back to Evacasia. The results were largely inconsequential, merely being a simple non-aggression pact with the Nationalist League.
In August's eyes, the meeting had backfired spectacularly. It was intended to repair NL-Evacasian relations, and ease worries in the public. In the end, it achieved the opposite - a perceived arrogance and ignorance in Blayredeshian leadership soured public opinion of the once hopeful ally. Although glad to have the NAP in place, many feel that Evacasia would never belong in the NL, and are pleased by a worsening of relations.
RP: Launch of the Century
With different setbacks hitting the Werewolf Islands Space Program, the launch was rescheduled numerous times. Despite this, preparations continued. Today, on December 11th, 2142 at 17:30 GMT, at Saint Fang Space Launch Facility, the Endurance rocket was prepared, one of the most powerful and high tech in the Republic's Space vehicles with heavy boosters, 3 stages, and a capsule holding the Maelstrom Rover, a high tech advanced Rover with coded AI into it to take soil samples and study the composition of a celestial surface. It's destination: the Moon. 10 seconds to launch....9....8....7....the control team holds their breath....3....2....1....the rocket's engines ignite as they kick into action, the tower pulls away as the rocket screams into the air leaving smoke and fire behind. The vehicle quickly picks up speed as its altitude rapidly increases, breaching the stratosphere within a minutes, the rocket begins its maneuvers itself to get into a stable, the boosters detach and begin its descent back to Kalrania where it eventually lands on the designated pads. The rocket stages disconnect as the main capsule carrying the Rover remains in orbit as it soon begins its journey to the Moon, ETA 2 days 16 hours and 43 minutes. The launch is a success, it'll be soon to land on the Moon.
