RP: The Western Question.
Given Icewindia really cares not for West since Wallace Administration. Marshall Hemlock normally would be willing to back Federal Council and not the Socialist Monarch however.... He instead decides to back Imperial Restoration Movement helping to Put Diplomatic Pressure on Nation. The Reasoning for this is there can always be better monarchs in future and to help Back Oswald Decision. Noting Icewindia is willing to help put Diplomatic Pressure on almost any issue Basaran needs help on.
RP: Campaigning (CDC) and Tour.
The Funds have almost guaranteed Election for CDC as other party's begin to worry heavily. With Marshall Hemlock looking concerned at Election itself.
Akulda has scheduled an Live Televised Debate between top Canidates of Election including her and Kishi Kennedy.
Marshall Hemlock agrees as Arko and Akulda are allowed to visit Icewindia at any time. They are Family afterall.
RP: Governor Cristian Seizes Power, Declares End to "Democratic Experiment"
Bucuresti, Rumania - Following his sudden rise to power in the July Coup, Governor Cristian went about securing his base of power in Bucuresti. In the days following the coup he ordered the evacuation of all Legislators and key officials from Bucuresti citing "lingering security threats." Over the next week, he conjured up claims and accusations of subversion and collusion to levy against Virtuvece and several other powerful Social Democrats; it was using these claims that he ordered them to be arrested. This did not work to complete success as Virtuvece and six other high ranking Social Democrats were able to avoid arrest and flee to Cenagrad where they have petitioned the government for political asylum. Regardless of whether Virtuvece was arrested or fled, his absence removed Cristian's main political rival and the head of the opposition, allowing his to consolidate power. After the arrest of many Social Democratic legislators and the removal of Virtuvece, Cristian called a joint-session of the National Legislature where he publicly declared that: "decades of decadent and incompetent democratic infighting and partisanship has divided and weakened the nation, it has been made clear time and time again that this state cannot function without a single, unified, leading force. It is for this reason, for the continuity of the state and the welfare of the nation that I have chosen to dissolve the National Legislature, annul the Constitution, and finally put an end to the disastrous democratic experiment." Although he legally had no right to do any of what he had declared, he had the support of the Capitol Security Force (the closest thing to an army the nation has) on his side, thus making him powerful enough to do what he wanted. Surprisingly, he was met with little backlash. It appears as though the decades of civil conflict and government ineffectiveness had built a growing sense of apathy within the Rumanian psyche, or not wanting to suffer through more conflict the people decide that it was within their best interests not to fight back, not to oppose the change. Whatever it was, Governor Cristian was able to successfully, and with little more opposition, seize total control over the nation in a matter of mere weeks.
RP: Rumanian Coast Guard Detains Kowenians Under Suspicion of Piracy
The RSCG has detained all 13 Kowenian sailors under suspicion of Piracy as Federal Authorities launch investigation into collision and East Kowenian Merchant Company operations. RSCG, though facing waning odds, has continued the search for the missing sailors and captain from the Kowenian vessel, as well as debris, in hopes of piecing together a story and collecting potential evidence of criminal actions. The 13 detained Kowenians have been refused access to the Merchant Company and their families while in questioning by Federal Authorities. The questioning aims to find out why the Kowenians did not signal for help, what their ship was transporting, and about any other information which could hold clues regarding their actions and operations. Additionally the Merchant Company has been contacted by the investigators demanding they release information about the ship, the crew, and the cargo. The request for extradition to the Liranaholm has been denied, but the government has agreed to share evidence gained from investigations and questioning.
RP: A trade deal for home.
The Backlight Diplomatic Envoy got a trade deal of black steel, silver ingots, and light armors for night honey and furs, the furs is a help for the people living in the arctic part of the Backlighter Knightly Order, since most of the furs there were wearing out, and the night honey helped with calming down most of the Shadow Marshal and Sea Marshal.
Steel, silver and armours!
Recent deal resulted in the Inkhaganate receiving an influx of materials and defensive apparel to which will be studied to see if they are of any use. The steel and silver is already disparched to be turned into whatever is necessary, preferably with the steel going for weapon manufactoring to soothe the weapon firearms demand for the Inkhaganate's horde. And to also make the Inkhaganate more self reliable than relying on Icewindian supplies.
RP: Digging In
Believing that the terrorist group was more than willing to hire their own race over others, given the nature of their goals, Turgon would be given the task of infiltrating and giving weekly reports on the group's plans and whereabouts. Basaran's spy arsenal was his to utilize.
RP: Going All-Terrain
Mountains were expected to be a staging point for attacks and this only confirmed the initial suspicions. Reconnaissance vehicles, predominantly in the form of technicals, common cheap brand pick-up trucks with .50 caliber MGs strapped to them. These vehicles would patrol areas near and around known caves.
RP: Meeting the Eastward Brethren
The Schwypian message would be received by Avidina first, as apart of its radio jam against the Mayori, no communications were to come to the Isle in or out unless it was granted by the Avani government. Once it was, it would be passed through to Rose whom would become ecstatic about this news. Sending out an agreement to travel to the Schwypian mainland to speak once again. Bringing along her personal guard as a "blast from the past" in her own words.
RP: Unveiling the Curtain
Before her departure, scientists from the remnant lab would begin to fear something greatly. A project, designed to be only revealed during times if crisis would see itself beginning to break down from age. With no possible way to fix it, the scientists would call in Rose to overseer the unsealing.
Arriving on time, her patience would be worn as she was expected to leave the following day. Lowering herself into a constructed bunker, the sight of wires and cables would not be unfamiliar, but would be more of a shock to see after so long. Before the Kaiseress, lay 6 pods containing what appeared to be Spartans.
"Mein Kaiseress! It is an honor to have you here!"
Stated one of the engineers on the project
"Yes Yes... Lets get on with it."
Without question, the engineers would begin the decompression cycle. after a few minutes, the pods would slide open and reveal a pure white mist. Coming out of the pods, Spartans from the old world would emerge and stay utterly silent. On their right shoulders would be the mark of the Phoenix, and Rose hated it.
"They are from his era?"
"Y-Yes my Kaiseress! We plan to fix this however!"
"Good, I want that removed immediately. A rose is what keeps this nation and people alive, not the ashes of a failure."
These Spartans would look to their hands and move their legs. Rose slowly stepped forward and examined these marvels of tech and steel. One would slightly turn towards her, showing her the mark of a headhunter.
"237 has this mark... Why was I not informed they were headhunters?"
"Erm... We didn't... We didn't know either! Those files were lost during one of the raids from the locals. That was from the breach..."
She swiftly turned back and observed the 6 figures and cleared her throat
"The year is 2164. You have been asleep for nearly 70 years, I am sorry it has taken us this long."
"What is the threat?"
One would speak up, a female
"There is no threat, your pods were too aged to be repaired, however this is good news for y-"
"Who are you? Where is Emperor Karz? Where are we?"
One would interrupt, surveying the room and attempting to find any traces of information.
"I am Kaiseress Rose, Rose Von Braun. Karz is in Demira with my mother. As for where we are... We are on an Island called Remnant. On the surface well... is the remnant of our people."
The Spartans would stay silent, cold. They would not know how to take the situation with all that had unfolded. However, they would come to an understanding and accepted it quickly.
"If everything you say is true, then that makes you the daughter of Karz..."
The Spartans kneeled before Rose and looked to her
"What are your orders?"
Rose raised a brow to this sudden show of loyaltly, but went with it.
"Well... First, you are known as Noble team. Noble 1,2,3,4,5,and 6."
She would point to them Individually for each number. She would look to 6 however the most.
"As of what you are to do, you are headhunters. You will be assigned to 237 and work under his command. I am looking forward to when I return."
RP: The Operation
As the days pass, Ranger would be dreading the moment he would have to go under. That day would arrive much faster than Ranger believed it would. Arrving at the Hospital within the morning, Arcwind would order guards around the entire facility. Worried this could be a chance for the opposition to strike, Paranoia would get the best of her. As ranger would be operated on, Arcwind would wait just outside the room and noted to be staring straight at the floor, worried sick. However, hours later he would come out with very little complications during the time. Being placed within a room, Arcwind was not and will not leave his side until he wakes. given the news that due to the extent, he would be staying within the facility for just a little over 2 weeks or more, depending on his healing and bodies acceptance of the new lungs. He was alive however, and thats all that mattered to Arcwind. The Children would occasionally come and see as for Arcwind preferred little interaction with Ranger at this time. She did not want them to see him within this state but still wanted them to know he was ok. This was a low point within the family but would keep them together oddly enough.
Overdue rp, this took place few years ago
...Victorious, we are.
For a brief moment did the ground tremble as the airship plummeted onto the floor-- the airship was decimated with the unison projecting of the Wind Casters, it did not help when the ship meet its demise hard against the grassy terrain.
The gunwarriors and casters landed, surrounding the wreckage of what once possibly used to be a glorious airship of some foreign nation.
One of the Īszka casters, when grounded, looked in the direction of the few survivors that managed to run away. The Caster's mask briefly illuminated by whatever light was avaiable to them as it was dead night, just barely visible if they were to look back... a picture that will be imprinted into their mind.
These horrid, wooden masks...
Meanwhile, the group would begin to board of the leftovers, seeing if there would be anything worthwhile inside.
Survivors, trinkets and so on...
And yet, with the piercing gaze of the Wind Caster meeting their direction, it was unknown if they were seen or not. If they did not die by the hand of the harpies, then let nature take them.
The gunwarriors took lead, keeping the casters safe as they investigated the wreckage. Anyone found alive will be tied and taken prisoner, anyone resisting will be shoot and whatever is left, looted.
A small group split themselves to reach back home on-wing, to notify their Icewindian officer that organized this group of the news.
The news, that they took down the foreign entity. The ship fired first, so they attacked.
RP: Rodina and Ranger 4th
The two would usually in there free time stay at Hospital to keep there Father Ranger 3rd entertained.

Icewindia First Party - John Smith
Icewindian Independent Party- Robert Charles

It is noted Foreign Funding is legal but frowned upon. Too much foreign Interference however can lead to problems...
The Great Debates:
As the Final Debates are ongoing. Progressive Party has convinced New Wolfania Party to drop out and join them. Massive peaceful protests in Wolfinite area's try to raise awareness to Progressive Party. Icewindian Independent Party however is using Fear to try to win populace citing it is the Wolfinites who are "Foaming at the mouth" aggressive "Ethnonationalist backstabbing Separatists" who need to be tamed as only Good Wolfinite is a Tamed Domesticated Dog. Icewindia First Party is campaigning hard with Television ads and occasional on ground speeches in swing voting areas trying to win. Center for Democracy Coalition (Tengerian party lead) was going very well and they were expected to win. Akulda is on the ground with her Husband campaigning however she was heading to Debates now. Ultranationalist-Militarist Coalition has split apart as Hemlock and Abble disagreed on future of the country. With Abble arrested for agitation of Violence and Blackmail against Parties. Including a investigation into an Assassination attempt on Akulda as there is evidence a known Gato Tribe member Assassin is missing. General Kori Winter is standing in for Party trying to salvage the disastrous campaign. All parties are now going to debate stage with Arko as a Guest allowed on stage. Despite so many important figures on stage Security has been increased but not enough. Marshall Hemlock steps out to try to get Garrison troops to bolster security.
All Candidates are seen on stage all starting shaking each other hands then singing to National Anthem. Once that is done candidates get to there podiums. Each one debating with one another civilized like almost no one interrupting each other. Robert Charles is noted for his Fist slamming Populaist fury however Akulda despite being calm is noted to get masses to really cheer. The Crowd then chanting into "We want Akulda!". Once crowd calms down. General Kori in a power move is wearing Power Armor on stage is able to get crowd to chant "Death to Blayredeshia". John Smith is able to get crowd to clap and cheer a little. Promising to make Icewindia Greater then ever before. Kishi Kennedy promises necessary reforms and protection to Wolfinite Minorities that wins hearts of many in the crowd.
The Debates are nearing the end as they all begin to debate one by one policy's. However security looks agitated somthing is wrong. Arko is noted to rush forward infront of Akulda and a bang is heard. Security rushes into action as crowd screams and ducks. One Wolfinite Figure in Crowd with an Elephant Gun is seen firing again and Kishi Kennedy is hit dead on impact before Security gun down the Assassin. People are rushed as Bomb Squads head over Police and Military Garrison officials take charge of the scene. Almost all the surviving candidates are evacuated to Safe Rooms however Akulda and Arko are heading to Hospital as Arko took a bullet for his Wife. All this caught on Live Television. Marshall Hemlock can be seen on ground yelling at troops to lock area down and evacuate candidates. Camera's still rolling see him and Bomb Squad defuse an dead man switch on Dead Assailiant. Reason the bomb did not go off is because assassin died in an Locking Hand position. The Bomb was an high explosive one with Ball Bearings thrown over it meant to act like extreme shrapnel. This was too well made. Eventually bomb was defused. With Bomb defused and area secured now came the Fallout of the Incident. Marshall Hemlock is quick to try to protect sacred elections and its integrity. Doing Damage control as he tries to rally the nation. He purposely has Wolfinite Security around him trying to calm the masses.
It is noted Akulda Winter is no longer Campaigning. She has not dropped out but she cant leave her Husbands Hospital bedside. Refusing any Media interviews. Icewindian Population confused now have to choose there candidates in voting polls.

RP: Back to where they came from
With the presence of the Avidinian jets and ships, a total recall was issued to all Exbrenian aircraft, and they would return to their fleet, this recall was able to be heard by radio operators listening to the frequency that the Exbrenians were using, though however many were on this frequency is likely to be few. Once all Exbrenian aircraft had returned to the fleet, the fleet would begin to back off from the islands and would begin making their way north. More radio transmissions would be heard coming from the fleet as well, this time directed to something else, something towards the north.

Although the search party discovered once the humans spotted them, they quickly ran into the countryside in an attempt to evade being spotted.
RP: The Chase
Local Reports would come into the local authorities. However, this would quickly be passed to the Avani government as the ship in question was not within the Avani registration. The government would begin by mobilizing the scout vehicles to tail the group, waiting for authorization to detain.
Meanwhile, a section of Frontiers would be deployed to wrecked vessel, along with air support in case they would try to flee. In addition, ADF forces would set a perimeter around the Shipwreck to Isolate the ship and the rest of Avidina.
RP: Maybe, Take this counter offer instead.
Luwuia Appreciates the assistance provided by Icewindia and is putting all assistance to use.

The soldiers demand their pay be restored and for the government to pay for lost wages. Generals warn that these strikes will only grow and that Luwuia will be defenseless if the issue is not solved soon.
The Government is looking for ways to solve this issue without putting the country back into a deficit
RP: Negotiations Begin.
Queen-Admiral Catherine is sent to begin negotiations on details of leasing the ports.
RP: The Hand Reaches South.
Marshall Hemlock offers that solution to the government... He offers to pay current years wages and lost wages for this current year up to January 5th, 2165. This would give Icewindia Influence over Luwuian Military. Marshall Hemlock is friendly to Civilian Government and wishes to help them.
Infact Marshall makes it clear he can also continue to pay beyond 2165 but this would give Icewindia Tremendous Influence over Luwuian Military. It might be wise to allow some foreign influence to give Civilian Government time to balance the budget but not rely too much on Icewindians.
Upon approaching the border, the nomads found themselves detained temporarily, however after a short period the nomads were permitted entry to the nation; though they would be followed by a group of cultural anthropologists from the University of Sol Vitorri, eager to learn about nomadic life, as well as a squad of soldiers to protect them on their journey.
Today the Sol Invictus announced that mass restructuring will be happening in the Imperium Armed Forces, with many units planned to be disbanded or restructured, as well as expansions to the Navy being planned. Alongside the military restructuring, a total governmental restructuring has been announced, with a mass audit being planned of the government, to find and disband the most ineffective parts of government. The current Head of Taxation and Tariffs, Alek Mikhael, was arrested today for charges of bribery, being accused of accepting over 18.5 million Marks in bribes in exchange for tax lenience to over 13 companies, whose CEOs have also been arrested and their assets incorporated into the Crown Corporation, the massive conglomerate that handles all Crown-owned businesses. The first governmental branch to be formed in these new restructuring plans is the Department of Taxation and Tariffs, which was formerly responsible for foreign relations as a byproduct of its responsibility for tariffs. Today the DTT lost all foreign relation powers to a newly formed office, the Secretariat of Geopolitics, which will now take over all embassies and foreign relations tasks, as well as being responsible for trade deals internationally. The Sol Invictus has deemed this a new era in Atralandian history, promising to bring the Imperium to new heights and a true golden age. The Sol Invictus has solidified his stance for the first time, promising to stamp out government inefficiency and corruption, to grow the economy heavy industry as well as the specialized sector, to expand education funding, and to start a Crown-owned alternative to private healthcare, offering an assurance of emergency medical care to all Woleves, and an affordable basic coverage plan for the poor. Many experts have speculated taxes will rise to accommodate these plans, however, the Sol Invictus has hinted that the Crown-owned private companies will be largely footing the bill, with rumors that a mass audit will be coming to the capitalists of Atraland, with any companies convicted of tax evasion or other crimes against the nation being absorbed. The Sol Invictus has also announced a national Small Business Loan, offering no-interest loans to those with a solid business plan to open up small businesses across the nation in an effort to grow the economy further.
