RP: Real-estate Crumbles

London Homes Incorporated, the largest real-estate in the Vale has declared bankruptcy. The company has been building vast numbers of residential infrastructure in the Vale with the goal of attracting immigrants and workers. Due to the irrational fear and unreasonable opinions by foreigners in regards to the Empire, the actual housing demand in the vale was far under what was the expected demand. As a result, the company was left with millions of empty residences with few people to fill them. Many of the residences are now practically worthless and a sale of the company's assets and properties will begin next week. It is unknown at this time how this bankruptcy will effect the real-estate throughout the Empire.

    RP - PROBABLE CAUSE
    (SET IN JANUARY OF 2017)

    Another day dawned over Neuerstaat, within the Siebzehn Nationales Amt (Headquarters of the AES), an ever growing record of rumors regarding some form of mass killing within Nonadia targeted (but not limited to) towards Laurentiean expats can be seen as the office appears quite busier than usual. The nation's social media was rather slow to catch on to something happening in the mainland (of Vesperia), though as the story slowly caught on over a few days, it would begin to get harder to find definitive proof instead of simply tales and rumors.

    Organizing a task force to sift through the ever growing mountain of content, it would seem to yield some results, as posts and videos posted by various Laurentieans within Laurentiea would seem to allude to some form of disappearance occurring, many would claim within a close timeframe to have suddenly lost contact with their family members or friends that had emigrated to Nonadia, starting around roughly November of 2015, continuing on to this day, though the numbers of new reports have seemed to stay at the same level. Groups on popular Laurentiean social media sites would also be analyzed, with many people coming together to form the consensus that some sort of targeted mass killing is occurring. In relation to recent Nonadian reports regarding criminalization and murders in Nonadia, many would believe that the Nonadian government seemed to be in on the killings. The groups would also seem rife with testimonies from deported Laurentieans that claim that the Nonadian legal system was rigged against them, forcing many to be deported swiftly.
    With Nonadian census data reporting only a sudden and rapid rise in prosecutions for crimes such as possession of controlled substances, robbery and shoplifting rising rapidly, yet seeing zero such rise in murder numbers, the groups would conclude either that the Nonadian government has sealed away the expats or simply killed them all and lied about the murders (since capital punishment is prohibited by VU law).

    As the Laurentiean government rapidly descended into a cycle of violence against the Greyshirts, a conundrum would arise, as higher ups were split between either focusing investigations into foiling greyshirt plans and finding strategic locations within Laurentiea or prioritizing an investigation into Nonadia. Though with the unsavory repercussions to a civil war right off the coasts of Neuerstaat, it would seem that NORDFALL would soon step in to create a intelligence network within Laurentiea to monitor the situation as well as provide advantages to the NV operating within Laurentiea, the AES would see this as further incentive to trigger an secret investigation into Nonadia.

    Though of course, with the Nonadian government sending away any official investigation, only further casting suspicion on the Furman administration, as well as being given sparse and inadequate evidence of some large drug cartel solely run by Laurentieans within Nonadia, the AES operatives assigned towards the investigation would conclude that perhaps the Nonadian government bypassed standard legal procedure and began a paranoid imprisonment campaign specifically targeted towards Laurentieans, likely based on the grounds of racist paranoia.

    While the AES plans out an operation to begin implanting operatives and start investigations within Nonadia, the AdA (Department of Foreign Relations) would assure Nonadia and their representatives no such investigation will take place. Though now with a covert plan underway, the transfer of intel between the AES and other VU member state intel agencies would become more closely monitored as to not alert any other party of such an investigation taking place.

    The main issue would be reliably obtaining information while preventing any Nonadian governmental agencies from catching a whiff of suspicious activity.
    Suspecting likely that there would be significant activity near the border, operatives would be planted in three key areas and given orders to first secure their privacy, then to expand the network of informants while remaining relatively unknown. (OOC: But you know what would really help with privacy nowadays? That's right! NordVPN, NordVPN is the bes-) The aforementioned key areas would be within Port Lagnoe in close proximity to Monrovia, Kalsan, which lies relatively close to the Laurentiean border, as well as Eaubonne, which too lies near the border.

    With such an investigation's privacy being crucial, a rather large team of operatives would be assigned both on site (less on site) and a lot more within management and securities positions back in Neuerstaat in order to catch any potential people who may suspect something is up.

    RP - ALIO MODO
    Shhh secret!
    (Set in mid 2010s)

    As the K366 returned from it's scouting mission, the reports of some missile launcher in the depths of the countryside would be once again confirmed in person, though with the self elimination of the launcher as indicated by the dramatic explosion, it would seem like the skies were clear, though with the presence of such a machine, surely this is no basic crime syndicate, nothing Neuerstaat has seen before. As so, a reaction would be swift as loads more of military forces from NV and NL flooded into the hastily built Riensetch site that saw it's capacity expand rapidly as more personnel arrived.

    Several more recon operations would be carried out in the rough area where the AA-52 disappeared. With one lucky recon group spotting the wreckage of the AA-52, successfully leading to the recovery of the crew that was onboard when a crew of the recon group wandered off to relief himself. With the group recovered, the question would still remain where such a group expert enough to establish a missile launcher would've based their headquarters.

    (OOC: by the way, the reason why the giant obelisk was not seen, is because it conveniently landed in a point in the valley that was a bit further away from Riensetch, taking it outside of the area where the searches were carried out. )

    With the swarming amount of military personnel at the Riensetch site, it may seem that the CFC may soon attempt to hide itself and the glaringly obvious obelisk to avoid inevitable destruction.

    RP - INTERVIEW WITH IROA FELKE
    Same stuff as before, shh secret, set in mid 2010s etc

    [UNTERSUCHUNGVONAUDIOAUFNAHMEN-RIE,SSS CASE]
    [Entering the room, interviewer Kiana Larosich, the person being interviewed, Iroa Felke, which is in a relatively good state of mind compared to the recent past]
    (Light scratching of a chair against a concrete floor)
    KL : Okay, we can start now. Are you aware of what happened to the town of Riensetch, Mr Felke?
    IF : Well I don't remember much but I remember on a wednesday morning that there was reports of gunfire in the north side of the town, so me and two other officers got in the car and rode to check it out.
    KL : What did you see at the site of the report?
    IF : The sounds only got louder when we neared the site, it wasn't single fire too, it was like in a chain and disorganized like several people were shooting at the same time. When we arrived, we saw a group of five that were armed and were just firing at a random wall, but then they pointed at us and started to open fire.
    KL : What happened afterwards?
    IF : We immediately fled the scene, though when we rounded a corner, there was another armed group, again we fled and there was more, it seemed like the town was surrounded or something.
    KL : Do you know where the two other officers are or what happened to them?
    IF : One of the officers got hurt when a round went through the side of the car, I remember they went into the police station when we got back, i did too, but i didn't see them afterwards.
    KL : What happened within the Police station?
    IF : Everyone was dispatched to different parts of the town, I got told to stay back though incase anything else happened.
    KL : Were you able to contact nearby police departments?
    IF : No, the phone stopped working and everyone's signals were cut, the station's wifi stopped working too.
    KL : Did anything happen in the station?
    IF : A group of officers came in the station around 11:00, they were wounded and said that there was a armed group numbering about 10 approaching the station in some sort of makeshift armored vehicle. After that they started to barricade the building and tending to wounded.
    KL : What happened afterwards?
    IF : Like half an hour later, a few more arrived and said similar things, then something started shooting at the station and everyone hunkered down and prepared to fight, but then I think i passed out, I only remember waking up here.
    KL : Interesting. Do you have any vague memories you can place between you blacking out and arriving here?
    IF : Uhm, I don't think so.
    KL : Okay, thank you then.

    RP - THE LAST EMBER
    Set March of 2019
    As the last organized force of the greyshirts are defeated at Kasaltmen, at last, war in Laurentiea would come to an end.
    With the nation suffering over 3 years of continued active conflict on it's soil, the amount of damage done has been enormous. With the majority of Laurentiea's once developed infrastructure and capacities now turned to ash, dust and rubble under constant fighting between VU intervention forces, the Greyshirts and independent cantons. The majority of Laurentiea now lies destroyed and in rubble, with only the far west, areas around the central like district (like Aalagen and Alhavn) and the Southeast (Apelhoven, Kalsterdam and Arnolle in addition with the islands) being relatively undestroyed due to simply lack of combat or protection by VU forces.
    With the complete collapse of the Laurentiean government occurring earlier in July of 2018, now in addition to being completely wartorn, the once united confederacy of Laurentiea now lies disunited and split back into it's pre 1990s constituent states.

    With the imposing of the Treaty of Kalsterdam (An ultimatum issued by the Intervention forces to wholly prevent the establishment or positioning of any military units that are not units under command of the VU, as well as several other articles, also subject to change by a council) on all Laurentide nations done with, the issue now shifts towards the topic of reconstruction.
    As Vespirsceptics (equivalent to Eurosceptics) still remain dominant across Laurentiea (now referring to the region instead of the former nation), an integration of region, unified or not, back into the VU remains off the table as doing so would require widespread political approval. Instead, perhaps reconstruction should come first before attempting reintegration into the Vesperian sphere.

    Believing that Laurentiea would be better off redeveloped and stable compared to a bunch of instable and impoverished states that will inevitably attribute it's poverty towards it's neighbors, only ready to brew ambitious warmongers and radical terrorists. Through the Vesperian Commission, investments in reconstruction and redevelopment will begin, as well as directly sending aid money, providing food to the displaced as well as carrying out search and rescue operations across Laurentiea. It is expected that the funds allocated to reconstruction within Laurentiea will rise to over 100 billion (Ǥ) by 2022.

    RP - Lumina I
    Durraki has long peaked the interest of researchers within Neuerstaat's NAR(Civilian space agency), with it's potentially habitable surface (though barely) and hospitable atmosphere. Though so far, no mission has been launched to study it's atmosphere.
    Though with the launch of the Lumina I probe, this is soon to change. Carrying onboard instruments such as a magnetometer, cameras (for global imaging), imaging spectrometer, radio sounding equipment and other anaylzers to study the Durraki atmosphere.
    The probe is expected to launch on February 2nd and should arrive at it's destination of orbit in January.

    Though an important aspect of the mission is to avoid the accidental contamination of Durraki with life, since though the atmosphere and surface appears to be hospitable, it wholly lacks any form of life, atleast from distant observations. The study of it's atmosphere will hinge crucially on studying any potential evidence of life, therefore ensuring that no extremophiles are able to live past the transit will be crucial, this includes several procedures to ensure all lifeforms are erased from the surface of the probe before it begins it's studies on the atmosphere of the planet.

    RP - Elynas 1
    Coinciding with the launch of Lumina 1 would be the launch of Elynas 1, it's intent is to perform several flybys of Kalrania, Luna, Durraki and Tralcanor.
    Carrying onboard several components and instruments, Elynas 1 will carry an accelerometer, solar intensity Xray and particle spectrometer, magnetometer, thermal infrared spectrometer, gamma ray and neutron spectrometers and a imaging xray spectrometer. In addition, it would also carry a smaller magnetospheric orbiter that will carry instruments to measure plasma and dust as well as a high gain antenna.
    The craft will be carried by a transfer module that would allow for the adjustment of the craft's orbit, direction and acceleration, equipped with a solar electric propulsion system, carrying two large solar panels that would power the propulsion. This module will aid in the usage of gravitational assists to reach the probe's intended target of Tralcanor.
    Though due to the amount of flybys carried out by Elynas 1, it will take roughly 5 years until it can enter tralcanor's orbit.
    It is expected to launch soon within late march.

    RP - Buevir 1
    The outer planets continue to allure the astronomers of Neuerstaat, their immense distance making it hard to yield much data via observation. Most eye catching of the outer planets would be the twin system of Niklentak (Allenmarche and Meyramarche, OOC : These aren't established names, its just they arent named so im making my own crap up), with the barycenter lying outside of the two planets, it certainly will provide interesting data regarding the interaction of two strong magnetospheres so close to each other, as well as the study of the system's satellites (as in, moons).
    With the launch of Buevir 1, the NAR seeks to uncover the mystery behind this system, in addition, in a past campaign to obtain public funding, the team behind Buevir 1 has promised that it would deliver stunning imagery of a distant world back to Kalrania.
    The probe would take only 5 years to reach it's aimed target, with crucial instruments onboard that will allow for the gathering of crucial data and info, as well as photos.

    RP - Homerya Telescope
    Though Vesperia does possess capabilities to observe distant stars from it's own ground observatories, it lacks the ability to observe from space itself, which would cancel out disturbances, blurring and cancelation of wavelengths as a result of Kalrania's atmosphere.
    With the approval of grants by the Vesperian Commission, a project to put in place a deep space telescope within the L2 orbit around Kalrania would be able to begin planning and research.
    Such a project is expected to revolutionize the understanding of other systems, potentially helping in the search for extraterrestrial life as well as to gather valuable scientific data on other solar systems.
    Though with the project's name uncertain, the telescope has been simply nicknamed 'Homerya', randomly picked from a box of names (of stars) within the southern skies.

Nx̱aan x̣ḿeŋxatʻyqʻulqʻiq, ntsʻannq̇ełqʻiq
Servus Sōlis Invīctī sum, Restitūtor Orbis sum

Tʻoqułʻmuq made her way, alone, through the dense and tall woods that laid east of the Alx̣ Valley and Shinkokyo; ancient and mighty were these woods, of trees wider than a tent and as tall as mountains, which she traversed on her Lequn's back. A trail could not be seen, yet she knew perfectly where she was going and she could feel the presence of those cloaked by shadow watching over the woods, making sure no strangers traversed these lands. The clouds above her head signaled a wind from the east, softly whispering in her ear, as she made her way to a mountain pass, ever steeper, until she reached a small cobblestone stable, where she would place her Lequn, while renewing the animal fodder, and made the rest of the trek on foot, as the path narrowed to the extent where only single-file walking could be done; with nothing but a walking staff, a pouch, a water bag and some rations she began to make the journey upwards. For half an hour she made her way to a waterfall, where a natural tunnel appeared beneath, and at the other side two, mighty totems stood, older than any found within the lands she called home, for these were of a time before writing, before words themselves were spoken, when the stars were young.

After making a prayer to the totems, she moved forward and got to the location she had been seeking: The Grove of Xanaaq̇ut, her great-grandfather. Unchanged since its construction by Ł̣utʻtońat, it had been recently cleaned by someone, whom she could presume, while the totems of her ancestors placed their gentle gaze upon her. From her pouch she would take a strange-looking incense of silver dust, while silently sitting in reverence to one specific totem, that of Xanaaq̇ut himself. Muttering a spell more ancient than the legendary bloodline of Qułʻaq, her first ancestor, she would light up the spice and wait in contemplation and absolute nothingness. The eastern wind passed, whispering a final wish as it gently grazed her face, and the clouds began to gather, while the nearby trees creaked and rumbled. After a few minutes the clouds would dissipate, while nearby her a presence she could feel in her meditation, a barely detectable sound of glittering dust, forming nearby, until it took on the shape of the old Tsotʻaan, as he was before his passing, tall, proud, of deep eyes and yet a gentle stare. She dared not open her eyes, until the spirit placed his hand on her shoulder while sitting in the same position, speaking to her mind.

Xanaaq̇ut: "You have his eyes, my dear Saańuŋ. Do open them, please"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "...It works...¡It works!...wait, ¿how did you know who I am, and who my father is?"

After a small chuckle, he would get up and start talking once more, walking around the grove.

Xanaaq̇ut: "I can sense it, afterall, only my family can pass through here and, well, a daughter will always take up on his father. ¿What do you wish to speak to me, Saańuŋ?"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "I have had a desire to hear more of you since I was little, my father always spoke with nostalgia about his time with you, and your legacy still resonates after six decades. I need your counsel, as that which you have given to my father, and my grandmother still, and your children"

Xanaaq̇ut: "Ah...I see Ńṭhuuḿ's knowledge is well kept in our family...your grandmother, yes, she spoke to me once, only once, before her own time ended and she re-joined me in the plain of night and stars. Few come here to speak, more so to care for the grove which I built...¿what advice do you seek of me?"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "With all due love to my uncle, who now rules, I fear for what comes after him, for few in our family wish to continue the legacy...I want to be like you, to keep the legacy alive"

Xanaaq̇ut: "Ah...my grandson. He always was more of a warrior than a leader, much like his second brother... Ńiin should've ruled. Well... It is hard, to balance rule and your own desires, to never act with the sword, but not leave it behind the seat. If guidance is what you seek, then my words you can heed; that is within my boundaries."

He would put his hands over her eyes, the dust in her sight paving its way for a vision. In there she would see first the life of her grandmother, all thirteen decades passing through in minutes, all the emotions, all the experiences striking her like wind against the trees. All her joy, her sadness, her anger, her proudness, permiating through the heart of the young princess. Then came the life of her great-grandfather, this time like an avalanche striking the valley, overwhelming her; the suffering and the pain, aching in her heart like hot blades, suffered for nearly a hundred years...until it gave way to a healing love, the love he felt for her daughter, for his grandchildren, the pity he took on the one that now guarded his resting place and the love for his adoptive daughter, barely a small child when he first saw her. The storm of emotions she encountered by the life of her ancestor flashing before her would end up overwhelming her as the silver hands of the spirit were lifted from her eyes, with Xanaaq̇ut wiping the tears off her grand-daughter's face, letting his old eyes, those he once had before the war, flash briefly as he made eye contact with her, the starry glow helping to relax her, now turbulent, heart and mind.

Xanaaq̇ut: "I would wish no one be like me, I hope you see why"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "But we need someone like you, grandfather, if not as a ruler then as a guide"

Xanaaq̇ut: "I was the Restorer of the world our people wanted, the Servant to the stars and to them that they needed. What I foresee is not the need for either, but for those wise enough to guide through that is already united forward. I can see in your eyes, despite your young age, that Alx̣tsʻoŋ has taught you much, for you are wiser than most young, certainly more than me" -he said, his warm laugh felt around the grove- "you have potential, but you will have to wait for your time with patience. Nothing comes free and handed over in our world"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "That much I have felt, but my uncle does not have much more time within him, at most three decades"

Xanaaq̇ut: "We've been given the grace of a long life, and the ability to leave it when we desire. Three decades will be enough for you to aid your family, in whatever capacity is needed"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "My father has taught me lore and has made me travel all the expanses of the Confederation, yet I feel unprepared still, yet impacient. ¿Could I come here for counsel later on?"

Xanaaq̇ut: "Of course, Saańuŋ. Though, remember, I can only advise you, not interact directly with the world. Go on your way now, the sun is soon setting"

As a gust of wind suddenly entered the hidden grove, the dust spirit would vanish, back into the totem and the ethereal plain. The young dze would get up and walk away, but not before she felt a presence nearby, watching her from afar atop the mountains, then seeing the small figure move, revealing the identity of her stalker: Meta, Daughter of the Storm.

Meta: "I see you talked to the old man, you still have dust on your face"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "¿Really?" -wiping small crumbs of dust, she keeps speaking- "¿What are you doing here aunt?"

Meta: "Making sure no one outside of you people get here, but I am more curious as to what you spoke with him"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "I...I asked for counsel, that is all"

Meta: "I am a sphynx, girl, just breathe it out and I will not use my magic on you"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "Fine...I am afraid for the state of my uncle's rule. I see him paying no mind to much of it all and weakening his position, my cousins sharing in a similar mindset, focusing solely on how to fight, drink and travel, and little else. I have spent all of my years listening to parents, to my tʻuq (adoptive mother), you, aunt Enko, grandmother; learning from, and travelling with you. I am a mother now too, and I worry for my little Starborn and the future that is being set for him, I seek to become wise enough to help guide our people one day"

Meta: "Well, no lies nor secrets I can sense. I am surprised you came to speak to the old man of all those you could talk to, but it appears it did good on you"

Tʻoqułʻmuq: "That, I hope so"

Meta: "Very well, be on your way now, I'll guard him tonight"

Nodding at her great-aunt, the young dze made her way back to the cobblestone stable as the sunset shone in the west, mounting her lequn and making her way back through the woods as the the last light of day faded, unable to take off her mind the emotions brought upon her by her great-grandfather's revelations still, she would tread with a heavy heart; reaching her home in the night, happy to find her husband put their son to sleep, gently slumbering with peaceful dreams. She and her husband would then go out to stargaze in the clear night sky, cuddling eachother as they spoke of their day to eachother, letting the ambience of their surroundings fill their ears with delicate sounds, relaxing songs of winged creatures, steady winds passing through grass and the chirp of small critters around them as the moon rose in the sky, only going to sleep after an hour of talking and marvelling at the universe above them, dynamic and alive.

Context: Post-Brennus War & Post-Coup
Conclusion to Ultimate Spy Games
Secret too all except Brennus Int

Much of the items of supposed alien origins had been damaged in the war, two states pulling inevitably caused things to break and Otyken was wildly unsuccessful at recovering some artifacts, indeed even the Extraterrestrial had escaped their grasp by mere moments. In the end the state had recovered the mythical Enigma Conduit a puzzle box of immense complexity and a core element in the secrets that had been hidden amongst the world and pseudoscientific history which had caused this huge mess and the previous cold war actions, Brennus had been solving the puzzle box it was a long effort but they got pretty damn far without the Rosetta somehow they had managed to translate large potions perhaps with the help of a native of the species who through some unknown way managed to translate some of a language that she never heard only applying blood memory if such a thing exists. The heavy lifting for the puzzle box was completed an intricate precise device Otyken ran some extensive scans and computer simulations with their rather expensive language database formed from decades of Xenoarcheology months had passed the state was crumbling around them they had possibly destroyed everything over a box that might just contain dust, the gods themselves held their breath as one of the head scientists slid the final piece in place the box made a mechanical click, it didn't explode, but instead ejected a handle which the scientist pulled to take out the drawer with the devices contents...

Inside they discovered more folded up borophene papers, blue prints which would accompany the previously discovered instances, and intricate beyond imagination Ruby much like the Rosetta Sapphire, undoubtedly a device for translation among a few dozen small fossilized ambers coated with something and many insects and seeds inside. The puzzle assumed that you were able to bring the girl to life and had mastered the art of genetics possibly wanting these insects or whatever data they contain to be brought to life again.

Further investigation into the ambers indicated they were not naturally created and instead were an aesthetically pleasing seedvault of sorts, how the extraterrestrials produced the devices were unknown, but the ability to preserve and egg in the cryptex for this long was a sure indication that whatever was inside was useable. The final item was a disk made of solid diamond, it was a data storage device requiring lasers, they expected the papers would have some instructions.

There was something above the North Pole awaiting activation, the Otykenese government has known about it for ages it was the source of many conspiracy theories the black knight satellite, supposedly it's been above the planet for atleast 13,000 years, carefully disguised as a rock possibly even monitoring the planet itself the Enigma Conduits next clue embedded on the diamond disk was a device and frequency to activate the satellite which they had built over the span of several months the device required immense energy and sophisticated equipment the worst part was it had to be activated at the north pole, the equipment was fitted to a ship for easy deployment and a team of the SI, MAJIk-12, and other high ranking Xenoarcheologists grabbed their cameras and set sail beginning their expedition to the north most point of the world... Upon arrival through most treacherous terrain and a few deaths along the way the device was setup and pointed to the location of the object and activated, the supposed satellite which just resembled an oddly shaped rock. The activation caused radios to crackle with something drowning out the buzz of distant pulsars. The visitors didn't descend from space, instead they rose from the icy sea of the north arctic, fridig seawater falling from the sleek vessels which moved above the expedition group with a dazzling display of lights.

RP: 40 Years of Fascism

Schools, shops, banks, and public businesses were closed today as part of national celebrations for the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the National Fascist League (NFL) which was founded in the chaos of the Allessian Civil War and has ruled the country with an iron fist since the September Revolution of 1984.

The League itself was founded in 1980 at the conclusion of the Long March which saw the remnants of the National Volunteer Army (NVA), who had risen in communist-occupied Allessia during the Civil War, escape the grasp of the Communists and make their way to safety in Anti-Communist Allessia and created the NFL as the political wing of their movement.

The celebrations aside from the closing of public institutions and paid vacation of their employees, the main ceremony consisted of some televised events starting with a morning event where the Emperor himself appeared at the site in Alabam where the NVA successfully crossed into Anti-Communist territory and delivered a speech eulogizing the lives of those lost in the initial October Rising of 1978 and those who lost their lives in the Long March that followed. The final big show of the day was an address by the Emperor to the People's Hall at the capital which consisted of an audience of Senators, Congressmen, Senior Ministers, Judges, High Ranking Military Officials, and even some senior representatives of the Baltocarpathian Workers Union formed under the Allessian Labour Front as part of the construction program between those countries.

The speech was predictable in its content as the Emperor went over the economic growth the Confederacy had witnessed since the end of the Civil War and how the country had "purified itself and stood up for itself as a true member of the international community" with evidence of this claim mainly being his retelling of the Confederate interventions in the Baltocarpathian Wars out to the west. It was not the speech itself that stood out to the people though, but instead, it was the Emperor himself; he was now in his 60s and looked vastly different from the young man who had seized the country and set it ablaze with fiery speeches of national rejuvenation. He still maintained his stern demeanor projecting strength but his voice, his skin, his whitening hair, and his general appearance all betrayed the progression of age that was upon him. Most notable too was the presence of his son, Crown Prince Amleth, who was seated at his father's right-hand side dressed in the uniform of a Special Forces Lieutenant Colonel. This has been seen as a big deal by many private political commentators as the Emperor signifying his son's readiness to inherit the torch and succeed him when the time comes. Unlike the Emperor, who has often gone out in public and interacted with the masses to foster his cult of personality as the nation's father, the Crown Prince has rarely been seen in public outside of official ceremonies with the rest of the Imperial Family.

In a dictatorship such as Allessia, it is nearly impossible to get a true gauge on how positively if at all the public feels about the Emperor or the NFL with most if any protests occurring usually only targeting general dissatisfaction with some local entities, celebrities, awareness for international issues, etc. But the lack of any serious movements could be a sign of general approval or at least apathy... or just a highly effective internal security service. For now, Allessia will continue licking the long-lasting wounds of the Civil War, but some say the Emperor's eyes are growing hungry to look abroad and truly evolve Allessia from a developing country to a true great power.

RP The Old Gaurd
In the years immediately following the collapse of the monarchy in Baltocarpathia, some nobles assumed new identities and fled to the interior regions. The former king of Poland being one of notable status who survived the war and whose current whereabouts are unknown. These scattered remnants would eventually form The Patriot Bloc, an ultranationalist organization who’s official aims are Prussian domination over the new republic, but whose secret aims are a return to monarchy with an even more extreme level of authoritarian control than before. While they had won few elections in their time as an active party, their continued presence has been a thorn in the side of liberal and moderate parties alike who have spent millions on trying to sway the people to the new democratic and liberal ideals of Baltocarpathia’s new democratic government. With Allessia subtly influencing the working class in dockyards with their “cultural enrichment” programs, the Patriot Bloc would be quick to act. Meeting in secret with Allessian officials, the facist group expressed their ideas of a new empire ruling over Baltocarpathia with a rod of iron. They would seek cooperation with Allessian fascists to try to gain more support while keeping the true ideology of the party a tightly guarded secret.

Whispers of the stars

A message would reach the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Otyken, from part of the Ministrix of Foreign Diplomacy of Dzeia, Sīma Fēn. Regarding the status of the old scientific collaboration between the Dze and Otykenese, ended prematurely due to the war in Brennus that had been occurring, it was the desire of the Confederation to begin the process of re-negotiation of the deal, inviting the Otykenese to send a delegate to the capital of Łʻysxḿoˮniq to initiate talks with the Tsotʻaan. Such a desire came from both from the Dze's simplistic pragmatism, as the collaboration had only been terminated due to the honour-bound pact the nation has with Brennus and with little ill feeling to Otyken itself, as well as the reports coming from Shadecloaks in the arctic holdings of the Confederation that reported of strange movements of ships in the polar ice, probably researchers, and the Dze knew that the ever-curious scientists of the Tengerinan nation had a better idea about it than the Dze themselves, or mayhaps even being the ones crewing the ship.

The curiosity of the northern folk was inmense, but as a stargazing people they also had a right to be cautious about what came from the depths of space, as the irregularities of certain objects were...concerning to the shamans, and strange to the scientists. For the first group, they had known of that object for some time, yet its rotation was odd, almost rotating around the polar centre and almost static at times, and for the scientists it was a most intriguing object, though analysis of it revealed no strange thing, they had been unable to send a probe to do proper research on it, but now, maybe, the chance could present itself for the secrets of that object to be revealed.

Renewed contacts

Long it has been since the Tsotʻaan involved himself in foreign politics, much prefering the nomadic life and the power held in Great Meetings, rather than dialogue with envoys and the signing of papers, delegating much of that work to his Ministrix. Things would change in this decade, however, as the Khanum and Sovereign Monarch of the nations of Torimia (Il-Saakan) and Ryuvir (Great Xing), respectively, were approached, separately, by dzeoi envoys with the request, from Tsotʻaan Łʻysxalx̣, to have a formal meeting between the leaders of the Dze and those of its illustrious allies, for the renewal of ties, the establishment of new accords and deals, and for the reassurance of the bond between the allied peoples. For the same reason, the friendly nation of Midribbonia has been contacted, with the ambassador in the nation sending the same request to Director Kratov.

Secret, only for Candain (Sitruuna).

The leadership of the Sitruuna Enclave would be approached by a fellow sprite, however dressed in a blend of modern mothian and traditional dzeii style, while also notably being a born imbued sprite, of commanding aura; a member of House Ontes, Þídan son of Jomdan, son of Mirä I, 2nd ruler of the Ontes Clan. He had a pin on his suit, an emblem made of iron with platinum ornaments, while bearing no arms and protective layers of protective armour between the lining of his, rather light, suit. He offered the Enclave the services of his organization, the Continental, both as the face, a nice hotel for peoples of all backgrounds and species, and the hidden side of the coin, allowing the administration of Sitruuna to hire the "Staff" for tasks such as Clean-up, Hits, be it open or closed, and related services. He would also state the conditions of the Continental: No business will be conducted on Continental Grounds and Contracts end in completion, or death. A simple deal, all things considered.

Secret, only for The Distanic Confederacy.

Lieutenant General Qihuuḿ, who served as the nation's primary representative in the A.R.C., would inform its Distanic colleagues on the regular, but extremely valuable, advances in the bioscan of czurun's spawn, as well as call for a meeting of the organization's leadership, for the commander had an idea of whom they could invite to help further research and development, as well as help in the eradication and containment of these hellspawn, with the khazdiat getting to choose the place for such a meeting to take place, as soon as possible.

Bureaucracy

After three years of being notified of the annexation of Tromark by the government of Nonadia, the Dze did not care much, neither recognizing the annexation nor defending the Laurentian right to it. In the 2020 Great Meeting, however, had foreign policy placed as one of its biggest points of focus and, thus, the nation decided to deliberate, for half an hour, on the issue. On one hand, the government had no connections to either state, but the Nonadians were in a clearly superior position in all metrics, so if the lives of the people there was the main concern, then Nonadia would do better as the legitimate protector of the island. Thusly, the Third Dze Confederation would make official its recognition of the Nonadian Annexation of Tromark this year, with the hope that the vesperian state has the best interests in mind for such an action, and with a lack of ability or desire to intervene should they not.

      Inner Heaven

    [RP - Audience of the Heavenly Regent]

For all their omniscience over the Inner Heaven, it is exceptionally rare for the Sovereign Monarch to grant foreigners an audience, and even now- the Taichang Empress remains elusive. Most, if not all international summits and meetings of heads-of-states that the Ryuviri have been involved in were handled by the State Arbiter, yet it would be disingenious to assume the Empress is merely loafing- and even more imbecilic to suggest her inexistence. After all, while most monarchs in this day and age have been thrown aside as ceremonial figureheads, the Sovereign of Dragonkind has been pulling the strings from behind the curtain- working in tandem with the Engine of Prescience of the Divination Commission to steer towards the most prosperous possible future for the Empyrea. She is the daughter and regent of Heaven, and the archon of harmony. Her omniscience over her own kind, and her longevity is the envy of all short-life Monarchs.

When it was relayed that the Tsot'aan of the Dze Confederation requested a meeting with the Great Xing's leadership, the State Arbiter approved for a schedule to accomodate this visit, and to the court's surprise, but also somewhat to their expectation- the Taichang Empress expressed her willingness to participate in this meeting... The presence of the Sovereign Monarch is often remarked as the greatest honour a visitor could receive in the Empyrea, and one that is only granted to those most deserving.

    ______

"Your Empyrean Highness, It is rather unlike you to grant an audience to foreigners... even regardless of their standing.. May I assume that this meeting is at least partially motivated by personal matters?

The young Retainer with white horns and lavender hair inquired, after setting down a scroll as the Empress requested. As acute as the retainer was, she suspected the scroll was of an important matter.. perhaps related to the meeting- The Empress never fetched for anything that would be irrelevant in the future.

"Retainer Baiqiu, the Cong'an (Tsot'aan) is a man of virtues passed down through generations of honourable men, not unlike us. That, and his people have given us indispensible assistance for our prosperity...

"... Did the Engine of Prescience advise you to attend? Or is it the will of Heaven?"

"No. it is an earnest greeting to our benefactors, from my mortal self."

The Empress with Azure Horns and Obsidian hair unraveled the scroll, revealing an aged photo. Written beside it: "By decree of the Yongsheng Emperor, the Great Xing acknowledges the Harmony between the Far Ashikuni and the domain of the Tsot'aan."
