RP: We're Comin'!
Preparation of factories and efforts to modernize the military have been slow, due to the makeup of East Evvia's land. Many of the country's civilian factories have been repurposed as military factories to temporarily supplement this.

RP: Split into 2
After a long discussion, the Northern Territories has finally been split into 2 states.
The eastern side of the Northern Territories will be called the Steve State, after the Republic's national animal, the Steve Shibe.
The western side of the Northern Territories will be called the Genesen State in honor of the New and Old Republics' strides for greatness for all Doge Landians.
In light of the truth revealed by the Blayredeshian government and past records of instability, disregard for sentient life and aggression to icewindia's neighbors, the Silver Throne hereby denounces Hemlock Winter as a war criminal and will from this point forward refuse to acknowledge his status or authority within Icewindia or its vassal states. Hemlock Winter will be refused the right to negotiate with Etrian authority figures and barred from travel to the territory of the federation or its territorial waters under penalty of imprisonment. The only recognized authority within the winter kingdom are to be the Divine Esolda,King Napoleon and Supreme Empress Wolfy of Werewolf Islands
Relations with the country are to go unchanged however as Hemlock Winter does not represent Icewindia as a whole in the eyes of the Etrian people. Trade and positive relations are to continue on as before is the current leadership is willing to do so.
In the case of meeting with Rose, since Natalia loves her wife, the royal vessel 'Hospitality' is to be taken outside of Etrian territorial waters under destroyer escort for a meeting place between the two.
RP: Syndicalist Secure Presidency
After many heated debates in the congressional bodies, Syndicalist Candidate Adrienne Benze has won the presidential chair. Adam Quincy was noted to 'bow' before her when she took to the podium earlier today.
"It is an honor to stand before the nation as its next president. I want to assure you, the great people Basaran, that I will keep going with what she started. Better Together under the gear."
RP: The First Spit
Later that day, Charles Mannfred began making public commentary claiming rigged elections, tampered with foreign influence citing the two damages to government offices where millions of votes were lost. Notably, those votes that were lost were in two cities that had Totalist dominance but flipped Syndicalist after a recount. Furthermore, he attacked the Syndicalist majority congressional bodies citing an "expect bias via party politics"
Charles Mannfred has further made a claim that "HE" is the rightful president and that Adrienna Benze is an illegitimate president. He called upon his totalist supporters to fight back against the now apparent party corruption that was the Syndicalist party. The following week, the nation found itself divided. The north, held largely by the Syndicalists and the South by the totalists. The new south has referred to itself as "Rio Insurrection". This is seen as an old nod to Marlyn's Uprising against the Celtic Council well over a century ago in 1970.
This image is also on display in the "Civil War Factbook"
Grand Marshall Hemlock despite only being the Grand Marshall of the Empire in a retired position as his position is only really used for War seemingly retains alot of Power stuff through his Family Connection and Wife's.
Grand Marshall Hemlock states there are no Laws of war in Kalrania and that what he did was merely Necessary Devastation of Southern Cong in which he is actively rebuilding the South. However he has made it very clear. In Future meetings if the Royal Family visit Etrius he will go and if arrested it will be an Act of War and Icewindia will retaliate Kindly.
Esolda Leaves No comment remaining Neutral.
King Napoleon, Hemlock's Son is a bit Angry at this and Will Remember this. However he cannot Deny his Father's Brutality in War. He is Glad his Father is in Peace and is Happy with Catherine, Aerial and Wolfy.
Catherine is annoyed She was not even Mentioned at all.
The Supreme Congress is currently debating weather to Do the Same to the Entirey of the Silver Throne Dynasty. Just when it seemed the Supreme Congress was in Favor and willing to call a Vote Early on the Matter. King Napoleon Forced the Decision as No and closed it despite Supreme Congress Grumbling on the matter
King Napoleon appeals to Queen Natalia for an meeting on the matter.
IIS begins to investigate into Basaran to see if there is any CIS Activity going on. Goal is to Find Hard Evidence of CIS Activity with Totalists Pre-Civil War.
A Warning to not Intervene was not given as The Golfing Meeting was needed and they did not want to start something over something What a War Hero Wanted to. Plus Napoleon wants to Maintain Good Relations.
Air Core is being sent in to Support the Syndicalists in Basaran 200 Huey's with Air lifted Infantry of 1,200 Infantry is being sent. Armed War Advisers will be sent to instruct, Arm and Train Syndicalist Militia then send them off to Infiltrate into the Southern Jungle in which they nickname Syndicalist Militia Trained by Icewindians the Vietcong or VC's in Short.
RP: Very well
Queen Natalia offers to go in the stead of Heir Apparent and First General Saleem, to the negotiations in Deija so that all Etrian-Icewindian affairs may be straightened out at once. An escort fleet will be brought into Deija harbor due to the apparent tensions from members of the winter dynasty, we will not risk our queen's safety to an accident or misunderstanding. Though a personal gift will be brought for Napoleon as a sign of good will.
RP: Big Fleet go brrr...
This is accepted however Catherine begins to Flex her Fleet towards Queen Natalia's ships. Even firing Practice Rounds from SS.Esolda II. It seems Catherine is a little annoyed.
Meanwhile in Deija its safe and King Napoleon enters the Snow Tower where Icewindia normally conducts all its business and waits for Queen Natalia to arrive. She is considered an Protected Guest in Icewindian Territory.
Blayredeshia’s elections concluded today as the Imperial Fatherland Party secured sizable portions in state and national legislatures as well as having their candidate for Chancellor, Calhoun Wallace, winning the position. The Conservative Whig Party numerically is the dominant party in the national and state legislatures and both the Governors of Texar and Dixia are Whigs. The Liberals won the third largest amounts of seats and the remaining small portion of national seats were run by Hiram Long’s Freedom Party and Joseph Stahl’s National Collectivist Workers Party.

RP: beep boop
With Cametz saved and Oil Deal on Mainland Archron Secured Oil is being purchased. Hemlock returns home to check up on whats going on with Navy in Deija.
RP: This will not go ignored
The meeting between Queen Natalia and King Napoleon of Icewindia goes wrong as The winter King takes Lady Natalia hostage in the Etrian occupied city of Deija.
With an arranged signal being given, the Etrian fleet thats been blockaded in the harbor makes frantic calls to stategic locations including:
- Etrian Naval Command in Nina to prepare the Fleet to depart for Icewindia
- DEG Headquarters within the city to begin organizing the 16,000 strong force to relockdown to prevent reinforcements from gaining easy access.
- 6th AEF in Comaraka to prepare rapid response reinforcements and Comarakan aid if the need arrises
- Saleem Kavorah's apartment in Kiros to assume emergency powers
Dwarfing the current military assets in the city by more than 53 to 1, the Etrian troops receive rapid orders to secure the city under emergency guidelines, taking the icewindian attempt to corral them as hostility and use their numbers to imprison them in turn but being careful not to fire the first shot. The heavily armed escort bringing the queen and her guards to the fortified police station does not go unnoticed but with so few troops in a position to stop it, the simply follow and report the findings back to HQ.
The several missile cruisers and destroyers in the harbor don't need to leave to aid in the effort if things are to get worse, as their payloads can be unleashed on any forces that decide to attack by land against Etrian personnel. But for now their guns are silent.
The videos of peaceful interaction between Etrian soldiers and Icewindian civilians are uploaded to social media by those that weren't deployed during the events to avoid the possibility of being labeled hostile during the occupation.
RP: Not Deija!
After an phone Call Occurs Catherine Recives an Panicked Napoleon in Panic Room reporting that Natalia pointed Guns and threatend him.
Catherine Makes the call and has Fleet aim there Weapons and have Carrier's Planes ready. If they try to make a break of the Blockade the will open fire. Catherine sends issue to Hemlock.... Hemlock contacts Kemonomica immediedly triggers TSE Articles of Defense and sends word to Werewolf Islands about there son. Admiral Catherine is with the Navy ready. Many hope TSE can resolve this Conflict peacefully....

King Napoleon was soon evacuated by Helicopter and Queen Natalia was placed in a Holding cell given TV Meal and Water. Police begin to Fortify the Station as an Military Helicopter with Special forces will come soon to Pick up Queen Natalia and her Guards to move them to an more Secure TSE POW Prison.
Media Helicopters begin to fly up in the Sky Reporting the Scene of the Standoff going on. Icewindian Front news covers an Tiny News Station on scene.
Katy Yahma:"I am Katy Yahma at Channel Fish News. Here we are in the heart of occupied Deija and over here we can see the massive navy Standoff and Enemy Naval Fortress in area from the top of this Apartment building... we can see Patrolling troops all around forcing an Lockdown on the City. Civilians are being asked by national Radio To Stay in there Homes. However we can see Mass Protests occuring around city but have avoided the Station and Port area where most tension is..."
Dragon News Host:"So Katy what has the National Guard Unit done there and what of the King Napoleon."
She waits 5 seconds before nodding.
Katy Yahma:"Yeah we saw an Helicopter leaving the Snow Tower earlier howeve-"
Camera shifts and alot of Gunfire is heard. As 12 National Guard Members are spotted at an Wolf Burger in a firefight between Etriun Forces.
Katy:"Are you getting this!"
Camera Man:"Holy @$@)!"
Katy:"It - It appears that National Guard Members are surrounded in the Wolf Burger as Etriun Soldiers are attacking!"
National Guard Units across the are attempting to Arresting Etriun Units would find themselves on the Run as many took cover in Apartmens or in Defensive positions. Often times being chased they opened fired to prevent capture. However 105 National Guard Members are captured without struggle however rest seem to be engaging Etriun Units in buildings.
Phone Uploaded video's of Firefights going on and from Anti-Occupation Marches are uploaded with peacefull interaction videos mysteriously being Backtrended to Page 5 or more or not recommended on Fishgle as if Algorithm was being altered. With Violent Video's and Protests going to Top Trending.
What is Most concerning is the Diplomatic Relations Building which Hosts Most of Icewindia's Foreign Communications is in the Occupied City. By them invading Icewindia one could say they are putting hundreds of Foreign Diplomats and Ambassadors in threat. Diplomatic Relations Building has ushered in an Lock-down and broke out the Guns to Protect the Foreign Ambassadors until Rescue can arrive.
Mainland Soldiers attempting to go through Deija Walls are repelled back and Icewindian Army is being sent over of 200,000 Peace Time Forces to the wall. Jets Fly over the City to scout out the area. As phone calls and Preparations are being made on how to re-take the Occupied City while Frantic Politicians are making calls.
Media press recently leaked audio from Foreign Minister. Yhi
Yhi: "I can confirm there is indeed Foreign Etriun Presence in Deija has taken place. That Deija is now occupied by Etriun Military Forces."
Grand Marshall Hemlock organizes an Address to the Nation for this Afternoon in which he and his Wife Wolfy and most Family will appear. An sample of his speech is given here....
Hemlock:"Earlier Today April 21st, 2131 an Date that will live.... In Infamy. Imperial Icewindia and Republic of Wolfinite Islands our Empire... Was suddenly and Deliberately attacked by Naval and Ground forces of Socialist Etrius. The Empire was at peace with Etrius and yet they sent Forces to occupy the City. my Son Demanded they withdraw and at the word of Etrius talks were being carried out for an Etrius Withdraw in which I trusted my Son could resolve many issues at hand. However instead I hear My Son in a Panick room an 14 Year Old Boy.... And that Etrius attacked Deija, The People, Our People the Empire's People. Blatantly Ignoring that this Nation Stands United with the Serene Either."
Hemlock would go on to appeal to the TSE that he is sending in the Special Forces to extract Queen Natalia and her Guard from the City so they may put her on Trial in an TSE Court.

RP: Lets talk... But not to you
Seeing the news about the events infuriates the First General. A statement is made by Saleem Kavorah on live television broadcasted specifically toward the nation's of the Serene Ether.
"Dear nations of the Serene Ether Alliance. The majority of you do not know me, I am Heir Apparent to the Silver Throne and First General of the Etrian Federal Army. I am sorry to disturb you, but I have an important announcement and a request of you. Earlier today, my Queen - Lady Natalia Attar - was to attend a meeting to negotiate the peaceful transition of the city of Deija from Etrian peacekeepers to the icewindian Winter Throne. For some reason this has resulted in her arrest and a small conflict in the city which was ironically the reason our men secured it in the first place during yet another icewindian internal struggle. I assure you that we have no reason to escalate any further."
He readjusts his hands across the podium
"The icewindians say my Queen are responsible for such actions getting out of hand. I would like to speak with her on this matter before I would render such judgement."
"I look to you, the leaders and delegates of such a close knit international community, one that appreciates the value of a sentient life, to speak with us on this issue on neutral ground and mediate. I can assure you Etrius has no need for a foreign city."
"If you truly value peace, then let us resolve this without needless bloodshed. I await your reply"
RP: Lets Resolve Issue Now.
Icewindia Tired from Recent Northern war still upholds that it was Etrius who invaded the City. However Icewindia just simply asks for Etrius to pull back to the Naval Fortress and give back the City. In Exchange they will Return the Queen and let the Navy leave from the blockade.
An White Peace can be signed Right now.
RP : Only under watchful eyes
The terms will be considered agreeable only if international observers are present and accompanying both sides. If the queen is released from custody then the Etrian forces holding the city will fall back to the fortress but not before.
RP: Meeting? The Goran Government announces that it would be thrilled to further develop relations with Ponticianre, and express their thanks for accepting Gora’s non-aggression pact.

RP: The Archians Outraged
With Tensions rising above a tolerable level for Archron between its two allies, The whole nation would be upsetter by the Actions of Icewindia. Several demonstrations have occured in which the public has stated a obvious message. “Free the Queen of our Kaiserin”
While the Archian publics choice of words are odd, None the less the Government is under pressure. Archron has pledged to attend and monitor the meeting
Kaiserin Rose, sitting on the “Hospitality” in international waters, has gained contact with Archron. She has made a statement to Saleem with the cutting words of, “If you can’t get my Queen back, I will by myself”. While Rose has respected Saleem, and still does, the capture of Etriuses Queen and hers, has left her in a mood undesired.
As news of the Etrian-Icewindian Incidents reached home, the Kiamaian Government was more than upset because Icewindia was taking extremely aggressive actions. As a result, the Government met in Shanyo to decide what to do. As there was not much they could do, Kiamai has condemned Icewindia as the official aggressor, stating the arrest was uncalled for and extends the travel ban on Hemlock and Catherine to Kiamai to a permanent travel ban until further notice. A travel ban has also been put onto Hemlock’s entire family. Kiamai does not deny the aggressive actions Etrius has taken, however, and communications between the two nations will be limited until this incident is over. Due to tensions that could come up from this, the Kiamaian Military goes into full alert, and tests of Emergency equipment throughout the country have become much more common.
RP: A Third Party Joins the Fray
The City of Pompeii was largely undecided. It suffered from bureaucratic technicalities and was not regarded as a provincial capital despite not being a part of any other province. The small city of seven million was not regarded for the election, creating a significant uproar from the local residents. Notably, the infamous pile of ballots that appeared in the City of Onor under the name "Marlyn" have been discovered to have originated from the island city. With the schism occurring in the mainland, the island city declared independence from the mainland under the name "Byzantine City-State" under a familiar leadership name. The line of Marlyn, the original liberator of Basaran from the ancient Celtic Council, has turned up in the former city of Pompeii. The City-state is set to be ruled under a monarchy instead of the usual republican set-up that Basaran has long held. King Ulysses Marlyn, a well-aged and former war veteran, is set to become coronated by the now re-established Catholic Church in the following week...
