Something worse was coming soon.... something that would set a chain of events towards a Final Showdown that she badly wanted to prevent.
RP: Akulda's Shield / The March for Freedom.
Icewindia was going down a dark path of evil. The Very path Blayredeshia had walked down.... the fear the hatred all lead to one thing... an Anarchistic Monster that would destroy everything in Tengerina before turning on itself. Akulda saw this and decided no longer she would tolerate this. The corruption of Reformers splitting into Two Factions could not stand. She arrived in Icewindia with her faction of New Reformers to do battle with Traitor Reformers of her Mother Catherine side. Akulda lead an peaceful march with Napoleon, Redrov, and Wilhelm all working with her against Catherine's rule. They had peacefully convinced Samurai, Capital, Addersville, Gato Tribe's and even secret religious minorities to join there side. Akulda faced the Civil Defence and Police's Riot Squads she swore an Policy of Non-Violence. This would be the last light of a Free Icewindia vrs the Broken System.
She called forth Archron Empire civilians she aided to join her to help bolster her non-Violent March. This was for freedom of all no matter ideology... this was a movement to resist the rot that had taken a hold of Icewindia. To Restore Freedom and Ancient Ways.
RP: Order at all Costs
Queen-Regent Catherine saw this treason and could not allow this to happen at such a crucial time. The TNL Was on verge of marching in and they did not need some Hippie's to ruin it! Yet it was not just leftists who marched among her ranks but even Nationalists, Monarchists and all spectrum's of ideology. Queen-Regent Catherine gave order to crack down hard with Riot Police, the K9's (German Shepard Police Dogs), Police Calvary and Fire Hoses. Instability would not be tolerated in Nation order was needed! Order at All Costs! Catherine begins to centralize all existing commands and Mobilize all the Reserves the war with TNL was coming and the Army couldent be distracted from threats from within. The Civil Defense must bring Order.
Yet these distractions did leave a single position at Tearth front under-guarded as High-command was confident Tearth would not be involved in coming War. Yet they did move troops against it except for single under-guarded position they neglected. It truly was Incompetence at highest level in Icewindian Military.
RP: A Shadow over the East
A familiar hum can be heard on the Icewindian-Blayredeshian Border... it is the hum of vehicles driving in mass to camp sites and buildup locations along the border. The other day His Imperial Majesty Blayre V, Emperor of Tengerina and the Confederacy of Blayredeshia, Protector of the Christian Faith, and Champion of Sol made a proclamation from Salis that “The era of reconstruction and isolation from Kalrania is over! The Confederacy stirs and hungers for holy salvation!” It was the latest speech by the Emperor announcing the official end of the Confederacy’s long era of economic recovery following the Coalition War which has resulted in a more militarized and war ready society thanks to the economic reforms of Chancellor Hiram Long and the efforts of the Ministry of Culture. In addition to this rebirth of Blayredeshian activity; it has become apparent that the Confederacy has not taken kindly to recent Icewindian rhetoric as it has mobilized the 5th, 7th, and 9th Armies to the Blayredeshian-Icewindian Border under the joint command of General Andreas Karloff who has divided the armies into a north, central, and south divisions as it seems the Confederacy is preparing for war. Several high ranking generals, admirals, and the Minister of War Raymond Byrd have reportedly begun the process of meeting with military leadership in Woleve Atraland and the Archron Empire for such purposes. Emperor Blayre V has also reportedly invited Atraland and Archron leadership to the Imperial Palace in Salis to meet with him and discuss private matters.
RP: The Giant has Awoken
The sudden news stretched far and vastly across the Empire, the giant was now awake.
Within streets of the entirety of Archron roared with civilian cheers and the military eyes switching. The Blayredeshian anthem was played nearly everywhere as military parades were being pressed for by the civilians. Archron managed to organize several as the new anthem for Archron was played as well.
The Kaiser, excited to his core delivered a speech himself within the publicly televised Volkshalle
“The Giant has Awoken! No longer shall we hide from the worlds shutters! The reclamation has begun, and we shall join our brothers once more!”
A huge wave of support rushed through the halls of the Volkshalle and the streets of the mainland. The Kaiser agreed to the invitation of the Blayredeshian emperor.
As the nation of Blayredeshia announces its return to global affairs, Prime Minister Cecil Rhodes officially denounces Blayredeshia and her allies: "When Blayredeshia retreated into her shell, the world saw general stability and peace. Gone were the global wars, the economic instability, and the League of Nations subterfuge. Now, as she returns to global affairs, Blayredeshia's first action is to announce imperialist transgressions across her continent and, inevitably, beyond it. Nations of the Free World, here and join us in our skepticism, in our denunciation! Let the imperialist menace know that the world's right to self-determination will always triumph! Though we already do not trade with Blayredeshia, trade with her allies, Woleve Atraland and Archron Empire, shall cease. We cannot in good faith help bolster enterprises, even if sought by friends of the Republic, so long as they align themselves with Blayredeshia. I ask nations around the world devoted to peace in our time to join us in said endeavor. Perhaps, then, we may thwart the schemes of The Nationalist League and restore the balance of power we all have enjoyed for the past few decades; the decades when Blayredeshia was no longer a threat."
During this shift in policy, Queen Boran, currently abroad in the Archron Empire, has been ordered to return to Schwypia immediately after her meeting with the Kaiser and her Guards have been ordered to remain on high alert.

RP: On the Border
With war on the horizon between Blayredeshia and Icewindia, demobilization has been especially slow. The Conglagateian government has thus far failed to reopen diplomatic channels with Icewindia, while simultaneously urging for a much harsher stance on the country to its allies.
RP : Diplomacy
The Lich made an amazed expression, his jaw dropping to the sight of the city. The cities of the Seibalath always looked depressive, most notably the city of Mel-Theiza, capital of Tershen. His hometown was quite a literal necropolis, full of living corpses that shambled across the streets only existing to fulfill what ever purpose their necromancer gave them. HIs eyes keenly observed the passing buildings, focused on skyscrapers if there were, and recording their shapes in his memories. He replied after taking note of the surroundings.
" I am made speechless by the great cities you live in, I'm sure my castle would've appeared as a shanty-house in comparison. This must be the efforts of millions across your nation to make. Resalia appears to be . . . expensive? It would be hard to rebuild such a great city in the event of catastrophe, or do I underestimate your people's capabilities? Regardless, it is an honor to step foot in this nation. "
He tapped gently on the window-glass three times. " Hmm . . . Don't you suppose we could open this to see the view underneath? It is strange we have to be caged for the journey unlike stage-coaches. " Melladar is painfully ignorant of modern findings, but is otherwise engrossed in the city's views. He never would have came up that high in the sky in his life. Soon afterwards plane would then land and the lich would have then followed Hessia / Siegwren outside the craft.
RP: The date and a request
While many in the nation where working on their usual day there was an important announcement that most of the people wanted to hear closely. As there was a good amount of news coverage while a good amount of Congress members exiting the building of Congress.

Why where there a lot of fellow congress members in the building?" The female would a gesture of lowering the voice as she would speak "Please please... Calm everyone, Nothing too big however we finally after a long time decided on the date that the nation would of course make the referendum!" The female would say as there was quite the chatter and some sounds of relief and happiness as then the female would lower the voice again "Alright... We have agreed on November 26th! We will make sure that pamphlets, Information sessions, and online will have the instructions on the voting booth, the questions in the referendum, and the date of the official release of results." The news anchors would charter among each other and then an anchor would speak "Senator! Senator Light! When can we know the questions the referendum!?" They asked as then the senator would nod "We will launch from today up to the 26th of November the nessasary information, As stated previously we will make sure to give the needed information!" She said with a proud state as then the senator would smile "That would be all everyone, Thank you!" The female senator would state as then they would walk towards the car with many anchors starting to leave with some information of the referendum finally out.
In the other side, A request from a person wanting to explore outside the nation and find other cultures had Congress leave that decision all the way in the executive branch with both the president's advisory along with the president as well. "Well miss president... It does have some good points and good ideas... However I am worried in general!" An advisor would say as then they would immediately be interjected by a fellow advisor "Nonsense! This is what could be an opportunity to finally learn more of other places! All we have is nothing, And this brave person is wanting to explore!" The other advisor would start shouting as there was quite the commotions as then the president would rise and then sighed "Gentlemen, Ladies please relax!" The president would say as they would sit down again "Alright... I understand the worries of both sides, I truly do! However... I say that this answer and decision? Should be after the referendum, When all is said and done... And when the nation decided on you know, The path the people would want the nation would take!" They would say as they sighed and then sipped water in her cup "Until then we should for now hold on to the request from this person after the referendum understood?" The president said as many of them would nod agreeing with them.

It was a magnificent spring morning in the rural Oseiyra-Norein - warm south wind almost fully allayed the fog, sun was already up in the sky, its light reflecting in the dew on young, bright grass, buds and branches of the trees, which were yet to bloom with light green leaves. In the empty field, surrounded by dense forest, stood a 10 meter high rectangular structure, with roof made of transparent glass, and entrance in one of the four walls, which had a muddy path from the nearby village leading to it. It was a hydroponic farm built by Midribbonian experts, intended to demonstrate advancements that its builders made in the field of agronomy.
Alexander Svel, one of the agronomists enrolled as an expert, lived in the dormitory built in a village, and always woke up early to get to the farm first and check how the crops are doing. This morning was no exception - he woke up at six o'clock, quickly did his morning routine and took a walk to the farm. The work put by people working at a hydroponic farm could be as tiring as work at a regular farm - the amount of systems that an operator has to check and manually tune is almost depressing for an unaware one, but it allows to maximise efficiency and ripeness of things grown there, be it grains, vegetables, berries or even fruit. Fortunately for Alexander, nothing needed tweaking this morning, and he could just go around and enjoy the sight of sprouts of tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants and zucchinies. The group trainees was going to arrive only at 10 o'clock, when the time for second check would come for students to continue studying how the farm works. The result of the entire course should be a new farm, built from the ground up by students and fully operated by them to show their level of gained expertise. Program's main goal is for agronomists and engineers to get this knowledge to then use it for their own work or new endeavours.
The farm itself was designed to consume lowest amounts of electricity and water possible, and that led to some peculiar engineering solutions. First of all, the system did not use ultraviolet lighting while there was daylight. Instead, a system of mirrors and lenses was installed on the upper level and roof, allowing to change the trajectory and dispersion of light. As sunlight is also a great source of heat, it eases process keeping temperatures around 28-33 Celsius. Another interesting detail about Midribbonian vertical farms is that they have water circulation introduced to the "patches", which serves purposes of not only saving water, but also cooling the space in case of temperatures getting too high. Construction process for a similar farm doesn't usually have long supply chains connected with it, as most of the building materials could be sourced locally or produced on spot from them.
RP: Feast for the Glorification of the Sun
On this day, the people of Esneria gather in the capital Solernum to celebrate the yearly feast for the glorification of the Sun, the principal celebration of the national Solar cult. A great procession through the city is followed by dances and free meals. Each citizen is called to glorify Sol by chanting and placing small sacrifices to the Solar shrine at the city center.
RP: On the shores of Avia
The home of formation, of a status of power, rose once again the Avian people. Around the coasts organized several members of the former Avani military, around a thousand in count. Within that group, was the Primo Luogotenente of the former Avian airforce, Lentio Beakolini. The former leader of Nationalist Rotalia had made a game plan to sabotage the Archian telecommunications lines and stations within the area. Once everyone was on board with the plan, they set out under the cover of darkness.
Within the next day, Archian communications and high command experienced outages all within north eastern Avia. Sending out crews to go and solve the issues, they would come across a less than happy population there. Many stared as the Archians drove by. This behavior was not like them, as many of Avia had grown to like them and this particular area was one of the favorites for the Archians. However, night would fall as the crews were continuously working. One crew was at a telecommunications station, repairing the grid. However, the crew there heard the scrapping of talons against the concrete floors. Attempting to grab their rifles they were cut short as Avians rounded the corner and gunned the 6 men down. All around north eastern Avia, this was occuring. Eventually, a radio communication from northern eastern Avia would reach:
This message would contain only a single message that would be on a loop. "This is not Archrons Isle, Avidina will rise again."
RP: Formation of the Kriegsmarine.
Within the Archian navy, a call for revitalization orders would be delivered to the Archian government for when the construction was over. Long before, during the 1900s, the Archian navy was called the Kriegsmarine after a legendary naval Admiral, Johan Krieg. Since then, the Archians have changed their naval name to be the Royal Archian Navy. The government wished to return this tradition back to how it was intended with the new age of Von Brauns. The name ultimately would be changed as well as the approval for construction to continue for the single carrier.
RP: The Salis Conference
Earlier today it was announced that a conference was being prepared at the Imperial Palace for an eventual meeting between the Blayredeshian High Command and leadership from Woleve Atraland and the Archron Empire regarding unknown events though many suspect it may be related to the continual military buildup on the Icewindian Border. In other news the Ministry of the Interior’s Department of Infastructure has reportedly begun acting as a middle man for the Archron Empire and several Blayredeshian construction companies such as the Rook Company and Baldwin-Jericho Ind. who have begun to send representatives to the Empire to negotiate the beginning of several large scale construction endeavors to be determined by the Archian Government.
RP: A Trip across the Pond
Meanwhile, while the State Ministry makes preparations for the upcoming conference, Emperor Blayre V has allegedly departed from Salis and is en route to the Archron Empire to deliver a speech at the Volkshalle.
RP: A cowboy goes east
Meanwhile a lone cowboy by the name of Robert Morrison has reportedly arrived at an airport in Schwypia for unknown reasons. Some say he’s a fugitive running from the law of a distant land, others a normal businessman, and others say he’s looking for a man named Roma...
RP: Welcoming the companies
The Archian government welcomed the Blayredeshian industry and began offering and or assigning them to projects all around the mainland. However, they were advised to stay away from the north east, as something suspicious and dangerous was occurring. As for the Emperor coming to the Volkshalle, the Kaiser made preparations to give the Emperor an esteemed audience to hear his speech. For the Conference, as it was the Kaisers idea he would bring the plans for the Conference and the documents for Icewindia.
As for Roma, word would get to him of this sudden arrival of a man looking for him. Taking some time off for leave, he sought out to meet this man.
The Invictus will attend
RP: Basar Ministry of Historical Records
The BMHR has long been performing archeological and historical record keeping services for the nation, dating as far back as the early days of the Age of the Federation. Much of their work revolves around maintaining records about major events, shifts in societal thinking, obtaining relics of the by-gone eras, etc. Recent breakthroughs in research and archeology have revealed new insights to the now world famous Basar Glyph. While details are still being compiled, the document is available to view for those researching Basar history.
Established at the dawn of Modern Era, what is now considered 0 ME, the Celtic Council unified the various tribes of the Peninsula. The Formation of the council ushered in the new era and as such created the modern universal calender, albeit under different names. The Celtic Council unified over 500 clans under a single reigning governing body which regulated rivalries and inter-clan wars, mitigating most before any big conflict could erupt. The Celtic Council was a large body of people, roughly 500 in count with a chieftain from each clan serving as a representative. It is the earliest form of democracy within Basaran.
The heraldry of the clans was widely varied from neighbor to neighbor and from the northern clans to the southern clans. The Celtic Council created a banner in which the clans that were part of the Celtic Council would display alongside their own. This banner was of simplistic design, displaying a wolf head bearing its fangs. Wolves were commonplace in early Basaran, so much so that annual hunts were conducted to curtail losses to the clans from wolf pack raids.
As early Basars took to the seas, they often bore the wolf head in lieu of their clan's heraldry to mask their true identity in the global waters. The Celtic Council encouraged raiding neighbors and distant shores for treasures and food as the boreal climate of northern Basaran was very hostile to traditional farming
Basaran of the Marlyn Regime (1976-2016)
The success of Rio Insurrection against the failing Celtic Council saw mass changes across the board. Much of which was in the political field as thousands of former kingpins, famous family names and the likes vanished in a matter of weeks with corruption trial after trial. Estimates put the death toll from the political purges at about a quarter million and removed nearly every major family name from the political scene. However, simply purging the corruption was not enough for the Ascendant Dictator Kane Marlyn. Ideological changes were needed as well and he pushed for a technocratic state, believing that technology would solve the many problems the country was facing at the time and in many cases, he was right.
This ideological change also required a change in imagery. The emblem of the nation under the Celtic Council was a timber wolf head as it represented the fierce wolf-like nature of early Basars. However, Kane sought to change that identity, to take the nation from a collection of modern pirates to the forefront center stage as the pioneers of science. The symbol chosen to replace the wolf head was an odd one. The weirdly flowing lines are believed to represent "Ley Lines" or the magic lines of the planet. It should be noted that Kane was no mystic or overtly religious man, he was a Florist by name only, as noted by several writings from the Druid Castias Hranji. The symbol itself has no known name and has only been acknowledged as "The Basar Glyph".
There are several very peculiar design choices about the glyph. The most notable feature is the 3 hexagons in the middle. It is believed that these three hexagons represent the centers of the "magic" or ley lines, one of which is Basaran itself. The arms, two up and two down, display the far reach of these ley lines and the influence of magic on the world.
It is considered odd and out of the blue for a man like Kane Marlyn to have had such a fascination for ley lines and magic when he put so much effort into de-magicking the nation and beefing up the sciences and education. Recovered Journal entries often have him referring to science as a form of "consistent magic" in which all of humanity can utilize. Beyond that though, there is no mention of the glyph, its origin or how he even discovered it.
The Glyph is believed to have belonged to a clan that predates the Marlyn family. For context, the Marlyn Family tree can be accurately traced back to the year 482 ME. This predecessor clan is one without a name, partially due to several record purges and losses due to politics and great fires respectively. It is still unknown how or why the symbol formed or how this predecessor clan even knew or understood the concept of ley lines and interconnected magic.
RP: Finding the men of old
Awakening to the Solists by his side was not appeasing to him at all. Arko however had an idea, being within the land of Icewindia. He told the Solists to march south and secure the nearest city, not letting anyone take it over and holding it at all costs. He flew away in search of Kizum, he either was going to get on his side, or force Kizum to join him.
RP: The Fight for Power
Queen-Regent saw the Giant had awoken. There greatest fear had returned. However Akulda's protests were straining on the country and she ordered the Civil Defense to use any means to put it down and prepare for Final War.
However it was not Between Icewindia or Blayredeshia the fight for power would be in.... Kizum Highfall and a ancient Icewindian General Jothon Rhinelander would meet with Arko. Jothan Rhinelander had mysteriously an small undead Army on his side. In which he stated some unknown being gave it to him for unknown reasons. Kizum had already unleashed the Horde upon the east.
Akulda is using Propaganda with 20 Archains and massive protesters who have seized more territory. Catherine who realizes Solist Navy may fully defect to Akulda's side realizes the struggle for Government Control is lost. She decides to call Hemlock to tie up loose ends. Eternal Winter is secretly Activated for a final time and Ironclaw goes missing. She then quickly transfers property to Akulda and then heads to Esolda Winter Tower in Deija where she makes a large withdrawal.... Entire Gold and Silver Reserves of the country before boarding the Navy and sailing off into History. Not before however making a clear media statement dropping Queen-Regent Title and making it clear she wont return unless the people beg for her back. The Navy leaves Deijan Harbor and sails towards Nonadia where Queen-Admiral Catherine hopes to leverage Family Ties for refuge.
Anyway the "Big Four" are now trying to remove holdouts and whats left of old Government. The Army is confused whats going on and decides to Back Wilhelm. Which creates complications and a blurr for Future of Icewindia especially in such a threatening time.
RP: The gift of Kalrania
For centuries the name of Archinite has been within the Archian hearts and within 200 years it was known around the world. With the collapse of the Archian mainland it was forever thought to be doomed, never to resurface again. A miner, named Daniel Schwan had believed that with his whole 22 years of living on the planet. Today, he would find something that proved the world wrong.
On the Avani mainland, a mine for steel that was made during the Avani era of the mainland had been reopened for Archian use. Loading onto an elevator. Other miners would cough, laugh and even hum as the smell of sweat and rancid meat filled Daniels nostrils. He covered his nose with his shirt as they descended into the mine. Once they reached the bottom the group dispersed. Grabbing a drill, he moved to a vein of Iron and began working. As minutes passed, his drill would break through into a cavern. It dropped into the hole, shocking Daniel as he leaned in. When he leaned, he saw the sight of his life. A bright red Crystal, slowly climbing its way up. Daniel quickly moved back and alerted the men of his discovery.
Two days later
As the scene of the mine, the large Crsytal had violently emerged through the mine, killing everyone inside from caving in. The Crystal was tethered to the ground from chains linking into the soil. The Crystal that had emerged was called "Cavern-1", after the cavern it was found in. However, the most important feature of this Crystal was, it began making red slabs that dropped to the ground. The Archians quickly tested these slabs to see if they thought it was true. Coming to find out, it was. The news spread like a wildfire, and now all of the nation knew of its return. Pictures from the sight began making their way publically and internationally, with the headline: "Archinite found once again". The Government was quick to action and began taking the slabs of the newly found Archinite and studied it, finding that it was the exact same properties as before.
The Archian Kaiser, returning from the speech at the Volkshalle would hear of this news and quickly rushed to see it himself. He was caught on film and in photos of his hands holding a shard of Archinite. A quote was later attached from him stating: "This is Gods blessing on our course!". With Archinite back now in the picture. The Archian government began converting machines into Archian powered devices. Machines for creating liquid Archinite was brought back to life. the Military was in tears at the sight of their precious Archinite being sent.
RP: Akuldas answer
Akulda would rally barely anyone to her cause. Only around 40 Archians would make their transit over to Icewindia before Archron enacted a ban on travel to Icewindia. However, Archron was willing to give guns to Akuldas cause should she decide to take a more... armed approach.
Arko wasn't pleased with Catherines Cowardice but chose to keep his mouth quiet about the whole situation. He spoke to Akulda and essentially asked for her to cooperate with him on the matter. His overall mood was confused as he was caught in the middle of something he didn't want to mess up in.
RP: Binding the Nation Together
Akulda realizes situation was in risk of shattering like in past. However everyone was on same side and she called for a grand meeting of the "Big Four". The Solists and Wolfinites were allowed observers for there helping. Synth Commune got nothing. The Radical Lohanists decided to back Akulda and Arko.
