ANN Update

“Due to several unneeded outbursts of rage Arul will be shutting its borders to Rlyeh as well as in acting trade sanctions”

The President stands on a podium in an administrative center in Quito.

We have witnessed firsthand the anger that has formed between all parties. I have decided that we shall not close our borders to any nation, nor shall we engage in antagonization. Civilians who are displaced, either directly or indirectly by this conflict are allowed safe haven in the halls of Bolivaria. Our compassion shall not be compromised by squabbles, nor our logic by hatred. All are welcome in the Empire, no matter nationality, side, faction, or team.

In conjunction with Antarcticao's plans to do so, it only makes sense for us as well. We intend to improve relations with the The Xll Legion Fulminata, as we seem to be the only ones with any sense in the world.

To all those in the world who require aid, heed our words and do not instigate conflict. Join arms together and enforce strength and cooperation, not intimidation and disillusionment.

Bless all of you, my loyal friends and countrymen!

The Dictatorship of Arul

ANN Update

Even though our leader is in agreement to close its border and shut down trade deals about half of the council (2 people) and High General Alkaptar hate the new policy and says that if they don’t revoke it now there will be consequences. And also non violent protests have sprung up in the capital city new Arul against the Policy. The General is also the one that is the most against it going out publicly saying what he thinks about it.

2-Arul is in shock of what happened a few days ago, Our great Leader Walter Lighre is dead. And High General Alkaptar has stepped up in becoming temporary leader until next week when elections start. The Candidates are Alkaptar, Counsel Leader Hal-Mine, and Top Soldier Mink Lide.

An announcement has been made today that as a result of the threats made by the leader of The city or Rlyeh's brother Mr. Ho-Zor, borders have been cosed to ALL Rlyehian ships, and people.

ANN broadcast starts by showing a man in a suit with a caption under him saying Election.

“Election season came early here folks sense Arul is in desperate need of a Leader, the election for a new leader will take place all week, And currentaly every one of the candidates are in a tie but we think that that will change soon, so get your votes in and we will update you along the way.”

ANN broadcast:

Antarcticaon hero and Emperor David II has just revealed that the assassination of the The city or Rlyehian general was perpetrated by disturbed ex-Crimson Officers. Due to their bravery and undying support for the empire, they are being honored and reinstated later tonight.

In other news, all Rlyehian vessels are now banned from either entering or leaving the Empire. Any found will be shot down without warning. We ask the citizens of the Empire to report Rylehian citizens to the authorities so that they may be expelled from the empire.

Hail to the Empire!

1 hour after the announcement, the Emperor’s approval rating rose by 23%.

The President of Rlyeh and her brother, chief diplomat to the ML, stands before a massive crowd of people. She looks like she's been crying.

"People of Rlyeh. Today is a grim day. After hearing the announcement made by Antarcticao I have been pushed by the council and my vice President to make war appon them. But it is my unfortunate duty to say we cannot. For several reasons we may not make war appon our former allies and friends. The laws of this great League we are a part of forbid it. We cannot make war upon the traitors to our kindness. But. We can still harm them. We will be seizing all property owned by Antarcticoan businesses and immigrants. Now. All Antarcticoan property is forfeit to the state. This is what happens to traitors."
All the people begin to clap. The sound is thunder.

As the President moves away podium a loud CRACK is heard. The President stumbles. Then she falls.

She has been shot by an assassin. She was proclaimed dead within minutes.

Thousands of helicopters fly over the city of Rlyeh as men in black suits storm over impromptu barricades, as they completely overrun the city's defenders.
