The Charlesland wrote:RP: New Relations

In light of the recent and ongoing conflicts in the region, members of the Charlesian government have expressed concerns over the safety of commerce within the Sea of Pontricare.
Following a televised address by president Fabrèga, diplomatic delegations have been sent to the neighbouring Saint Shokai and Evacasia to establish relations and explore possibilities of land trade-routes. Additional delegations were sent to Srednjaci, Windardia and Rekken to establish relations.

The Charlesland is a modern nation, the Charlesians are known for their colourful and poetic use of language, perhaps to the amusement of others.

All of these delegation are preceded by troubadours adorning traditional Medieval attire, singing poems and songs of courtly love and the praise of mythical heroes of old.

They come bearing fragrant bouquets and essences of lavender,
the scents of which brings one to the sunny lavender fields amidst majestic mountains.
They bring delicacies such as the sweet còcamel, a traditional honey pastries,
and some of the countries' finest foie gras and most savorous of
cheeses (the latter of which pleases some senses and not others).
More importantly however, the delegations bears world renown Charlesian wines,
arriving in quantities deemed excessive even by Charlesian standards.
The wines are selected from the finest vintages across each of the country's regions,
the taste of which serenades one's palette and enamours the soul (and are proven to be healthy for the heart).

The Charlesland awaits with impatience to establish diplomatic ties with its neighbours.

RP: Gift back

Welcoming The Charleslandian delegation and their gifts, the Rekkenian high-throne has gathered and sent a gift back.
The gift would include:
-1lx24-pack of Red Pentagon Vodka,
-Rekkenian delicacies like kalakukko
-A litter of four Demiran Desert Cat kittens
-A letter sealed with the seal of the Rekkenian high-throne.

The letter would have a reminder of the Rekkenian trade route and free trade policies on non-government monopolized fields in within Rekken (movement of goods through and trade by foreign companies on non-government monopolized fields like alcohol and glass industries within Rekken is completely legal, even encouraged as long as the field-specific tariffs are payed as usual).
The letter would also contain an add for RIG convoy escort services aimed for companies trading through Rekken.

Athejia wrote:RP: Time for a Plan

With nearly half of the army currently being throw into Arcadia, and 3/4ths of the navy providing fire support, the military has succeeded in securing safe zones along the coast. Captain Elsinore and the XFNS Tseng Wuxin would be directed to the city of Essence, given its position on the tip of a peninsula it was easy to cut it off from the rest of the island. Esolda would similarly be flagged down by one of the many angels supporting the ground troops. Essence would be the de-facto capital of the nation until Austera was retaken, and many of the Sword Saints were present there preparing to discuss a more effective plan of attack.

The brutality of the fighting was made apparent for any who saw the city, bullet holes and spent casings covered nearly every surface, smoldering craters, cruel slash marks, and blood was to be found anywhere one looked. Bodies, both Athejian and... otherworldy... floated listlessly in the water, piled up in street corners, and draped over all manner of objects. A constant stream of soldiers flooded into the murky darkness to the north, ships went to and fro, leaving for more ammo and returning to resume their incessant bombardment of Arcadia.

{ RP | Another Plan, Perhaps? }

The arrival of the Xin-Fael battleship at Essence would mark the first time any people or vessels had reached the Athejian islands in two years, and they were likely to be the last for the time being. The carnage that permeated the city would be a terrifying sight to behold. Xin-Fael personnel often shared stories about the awesome angelic peoples of the Athejian islands and many believed them invincible. Of course, the Conglagateian War proved that sentiment wrong, but still, the myth persisted among the ranks of the Federation. To see so much carnage, both angelic and demonic, was too much for many of the sailors aboard the Tseng Wuxin to bear.

Captain Auresse Elsinore would lead her team to meet with the Sword Saints, making their way through the ruins of the once-bustling city. The swirling mass in the backdrop gave the whole situation an ominous feel, and rightly so. Entering into the meeting room with her lieutenant, Gi Nakasa, the pair would listen in on the consulting of the various Sword Saints and, to their surprise, the Icewindian leader Esolda. After hearing Esolda's... simple plan, Captain Elsinore would pipe up.

Elsinore: "So what tactics have we tried? I'm not sure the continuous shelling is doing anything but keeping that at bay, and we certainly can't just fly in there without any protection. I also doubt that killing everything that comes out of there is a viable long-term solution. I figure the best solution is to go in there and stop whatever unholy abomination is at play. Do wards have any effect in breaching the storm?"

Imperial Nalvetland wrote:An Address To the Nation:
Soundtrack: https://youtu.be/vCHREyE5GzQ
|On BBS 1 and globally on the BBS World Service, Prime Minister Gary Lowry, delivered an unusually sober and consice address (albeit written by the Foreign Secretary) from behind the grand mahogany desk in No.10 Upping Street. The address, was not just aimed at the general public, to inform and reassure, but was also aimed at the international audience. In his usual dry yet dulcet northern tone, he began sombrely:

"Good Afternoon. Yesterday Evening, I gave our Armed Forces a directive to commence a series of airstrikes against the Wolfinite Republic. This decisive action was pre-emptive in nature and for the purpose of our own self-defence. This was a decision not taken lightly, however it remained the only option available to this government, for reasons which I will explain forthwith. Several days ago, our armed forces began a series of joint exercises - they were locally confined, not unduly large, and in their usual exercise areas. However, this seems to have provided the Government of the Wolfinite Republic with the Casus belli, the excuse, they had evidently been looking for. It is normal to place some forces on alert when your neighbour conducts an exercise, what is highly unusual however, is to mobilise upwards of 5 times as many troops, and then - critically - begin placing regions of the border into a State of Emergency; one does not curb the rights of their own citizens because of a small exercise in a neighbouring country. This indicates that a genuine war was not only expected by the Wolfinite Republic, but far more likely, that they intended to start one. Granted, we cannot be one hundred percent sure of this, however, with the overwhelming force arrayed against us, taking the de-escalatory step - as the Wolfinite Government demanded - would have left us defenceless entirely and, frankly, was nigh suicidal. Thus the only option left to us was to take a gamble, and do exactly the opposite of what the enemy expected us to do, making the best use of the limited means at our disposal. I ask that you all spare a thought for our brave fighting men and women who protect us in this dark hour. Additionally I would like to reassure governments around the world, that this is not an act of blind imperialism, or aggression. This is not an attack on the TSE, our quarrel lies only with our neighbours, and besides, this is is a defensive conflict. Allies of the Wolfinite Government (Icewindia, Fiercewood, Dwarf Land4) have nothing to fear and their interests in the country will not be harmed, provided they are made known to us. I thank you all, and may god see us to victory."

MI7, the nation's intelligence service, was ordered to help this message - that the Wolfinites were the aggressor, and peaceful Anglorussia was no danger to anyone else - spread somewhat more fluidly. On social media sites like Tangent (Northern New Solingarch) legitimate accounts, gov and private begin circulating infographics and posts indicating the disparity in troops numbers, highlighting the aggressive response of the Wolfinite Government and its past history of imperialism in the Kowen Islands. This was amplified by bot accounts, some old, some new. On somewhat more disreputable sites such as 2Tel (Artaecus?) similar information is posted anonymously, often of a slightly more conspiratorial nature, talking of a Wolfinite desire to control from Akschoss to Letanrica. Additionally, other accounts are used to leak the first snippets of combat footage - mainly HUD tapes spliced together with comms recordings from the Tornado bombers - the idea being portray the fight as a David versus Goliath style struggle, with Anglorussia starring as the plucky, yet apt under dog.|

In Hostile Skies:

|Aboard the lead E-3D Sentry AWACS plane circling 150km from the border, the systems operators and intelligence officers responsible for tracking the strike's progress had collated more or less all of the reports available to them into one picture, and it looked good. Nodding with grim satisfaction, at the latest brief, the strike commander - an Air Commodore and former Tornado Pilot himself - summarised the progress; all targets hit, though for 3 Tornadoes lost to ground fire. Nontheless, it was time for part two. Turning to his Senior Communications Operator, he gave the nod.

The remaining 76 Tornado GR.1s, holding at low level over enemy territory, are cleared onto their targets: the 9 biggest naval bases and ports on the mainland. Climbing to 25,000ft to get above much of the anti-aircraft fire, their attacks were far less adrenaline-fuelled and far more surgical in nature. Each Tornado packed a pair of 2,000lb Paveway laser-guided bombs, with 8 aircraft per target, they target piers, container terminals, cranes, berths, ferry terminals and drydocks. It was hoped the 16 bunker-busting warheads would break up the foundation of much of the harbour, making repair far more difficult. But primarily, for a good while, it was hoped it would make it a great deal more difficult to offload anything, be it men or materiel, on the mainland.|

2nd Army Prepares to Move:

|The Wolfinite Artillery fire was not entirely unexpected - it was obvious that there would need to be some sort of reply to the Air Force's attack, what form it would take was another matter. With the only intel guiding the guns being hours old satellite imagery, at best and with no forward observation, the effect of the barrage was appreciably not brilliant, with a total of 6 casualties across the dug in I Corps. The response was a rapid one, with one of the Corps' Rocket Artillery Regiments - guided by their COBRA Artillery-Spotting Radars - unleashes a full salvo of 216 M30 GPS-Guided cluster rockets at all of the detected enemy firing locations. Within a minute, the Regiment's 18 M270 MLRS vehicles had stowed their launchers and were moving rapidly cross country to a new firing location. As they did so, a Rocket Artillery Regiment from the newly arrived III Corps stood up in the counter-battery role.

III Corps, entailing a further 55,000 personnel and three fighting divisions: 4th Armoured, Guards Armoured and the 49th (TA) Infantry Division, took up responsibility for the Eastern/Southern end of the border, and I Corps shunts itself up, to stand to on the Northern half of the border. This new 2 Corps formation needed a parent formation, as such the new "2nd Army" was formed using the local "South-East Command" HQ. Anticipating offensive action, the 400+ little Scimitar Reconnaissance Tanks, Spartan APCs and Striker AT vehicles of the 6 Formation Reconnaissance Regiments cross the border. Carefully bounding forward in pairs (under the careful overwatch of hull-down Strikers) looking for hostile forces, enemy Recce Forces, potential engineering problems such as rigged or blown bridges and minefields. Supporting this are 12 of the rocket-like CL-289 drones, streaking across the border at low altitude, linking their sensor feeds back to each division HQ.

In the rear areas of I and III Corps, between 30 to 50km from the border. RAF engineers begin constructing six forward dispersal airstrips. These are constructions made with pre-fab metal runway matting (so as to let the grass grow through the hardened surface) in small forests, or near blocked-off sections of roads, with taxiways. The runways themselves were very short, and the aprons, fuel storage ammo bunkers, and maintenance areas are hidden under the trees in camouflaged hides large enough to support small aircraft or multiple fuel trucks. Squadron and base headquarters elements either operate from tents or from impromptu bunkers made from reinforced shipping containers. Finally, the RAF Regiment (the Air Force's own infantry) arrive to secure the sight from ground attack. The process only takes a few hours, and shortly after they were done, the first of 72 Harrier GR.5s began their vertical descent to their new homes. |

TF.217 Moves in, TF.164 Puts to Sea:
|Just 20km from the Southern Island (which I still haven't been told the name of btw), the two Upholder Class SSKs slow to just 5 knots, slowly creeping just above the seabed to designated points 10km North and South of the island on silent running. In their cramped confines, each sub hosts an 8 Man Patrol team from the Special Boat Squadron. And so the anxious wait begins. Meanwhile on the carriers, within striking distance of the Southern Island, regular flight ops continue, though the 16 Harrier GR.5s dispersed over the ships are fuelled and loaded. The first 4 are launched from the light carrier HMS Implacable in quick succession, loaded for an Armed Recce flight prior to putting the SBS ashore. Sweeping in at 200ft over the sea, they keep a close eye on the threat warning systems as they approach the coastline.

On the 3 other carriers of the Task Group, 28 Sea Harriers are prepared for action. In the cramped hangars the fighters are checked, fuelled, and loaded with a pair of Sea Eagle missiles each. The strike was set for a few hours time. 150km North of the Group, one of their Nimrod MRA.4s swings north, listing away with the ESM.|

TF.164
|On the other side of the country, departing Belfast Naval Base into the Gulf of Konscoss, Task Force.164 begins to make steam, pushing West at a good 20 knots. TF.164 was a fast-carrier strike force, centred on the Centaur Class fleet carriers HMS Colossus, HMS Majestic and HMS Formidable, with the Invincible Class light carrier, HMS Indomitable. The purpose of this force was two-fold: 1 to ensure safe passage of commerce in the seas West of Anglorussia; 2. Situation permitting, conduct strikes on military and industrial targets - if the Wolfinite Navy was going to tie itself to it's own coastline, may as well make them pay for the sacrifice.

The escort force was near identical in size and position to TF.217's (it was a generic formation, applicable to many situations, which is why it was chosen), with only the submarine force differing, and rather than an L-shape, the force maintained a broad wedge ahead of the carrier group, with the remaining escorts forming a rear ward semi-circle around the Task Force.

Submarines were still the primary concern - it was entirely plausible that the Wolfinite Navy could have positioned several in their path in an attempt to shut down the Gulf, so 16 Sea King HAS.5 ASW helicopters are kept on station at any one time. With active sonobouys and dipping sonar, they patrol up to 50km put from the group, working with smaller Lynx HAS.2 from the Frigates to identify spurious sonar contacts. From the mainland, 3 Nimrod MRA.4s are kept on station, sweeping up to 200km ahead of the fleet, in addition to the regular Nimrod patrols flown over the seas around the Anglorussian Union. These Nimrods lay sonobouy fields and search with radar and ESM gear for radar contacts or emissions.

50km North-West and North-East of the group 2 Sea King AEW birds are kept on station, with two CAPs of 4 Sea Harrier FA.2s 50km further than that, plus a third CAP kept over the cruisers. The submarine force (3 Trafalgar and 4 Swiftsure Class SSNs), again was 150-200km ahead, in a broad screen ahead of the force, sprinting and drifting under the thermal layer, fixed and towed sonar systems operating on passive.|

RP: *cracking knuckles*

With Nalvetland's attacks crippling the air force, the Republic orders the divisions in the Far East to fall back 120 kilometers from the border and dig in and hold out, artillery is affected but isn't terribly destroyed, but definitely wounded. The Navy is ordered to fall back and leave the Southern Island of Tatoon. The National Guard in the Far East is to be mobilized into the Eastern Militia to perform sabotage to slow down the enemy. For now the strategy is to slow down the enemy and await reinforcements. Air fields begin to rebuild as quickly as possible.

RP: (Secret to all but TSE members and Icewindia)

Wolfy authorizes a platoon of 25 submarines, 3 destroyers, and 2 light-carriers to secretly patrol and wreck havoc on Nalvetlandian shipping in the South around the Peninsula and the Southern Islands on the Southern Archipelago. Small dingy's outfitted with explosives are to be sent into kamikaze into enemy ships. Wolfy also hands Hemlock of Icewindia the missile codes to him in order to keep it secure in case something happens at home.

DER STAATSBERICHT # 1

"Was auch immer im Staat passiert, bleibt im Staat."
"What happens in the State, Stays in the state."

Allen geht es gut im Staat. Das würde jeder verbalisieren, aber in Bezug auf die Authentizität ist das Leben im Staat schrecklich, wenn Sie nicht für den Himmel als würdig erachtet werden. Diejenigen, die es nicht wert sind, werden zu einer Halbpension in Hölle und Verdammnis verurteilt. Obwohl sie auf dem Boden, an dem sie an Tore gefesselt sind, Tag für Tag dem Bergbau gehören, sind die "nicht makellosen" schmutzigen "Bewohner" bloße Werkzeuge des Regimes.

All are doing well in the state. That is what anyone would verbalize but in authenticity, life in the State is horrible if you aren't deemed worthy for the heavens. Those not worthy are sentenced to a sempiternity in hell and damnation. Though on the ground where they are shackled to gates they are owned by mining day out in and day in the "Non-pristine" dirty "denizens" are mere implements to the Regime.

The Great Proletarian Reform!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSyJKgSyAWc

After the fall of Beilan, the People's Liaoxian had entered a massive time of economic transition. The single greatest land reform movement in history had recently taken place, giving lands back to the people through means of sprawling agrarian communes and heavy industrial blocks. As the indoctrinated red guard lead the enthusiastic march to a simpler life free from the complexities and abuses of the Nian Dynasty, the Revolutionary Party of the Beloved Motherland began to shift its priorities into the long-term liberation of the worker from the shackles of foreign capitalism. Thusly, it fell on the Party and Liaoxianic Revolutionary Red Army to form society into the revolutionary principle of discipline and martyr-like fervor.

The first target of destruction? Euphorium. Through either direct selling or indirect smuggling, it had become an epidemic in the Nian Dynasty's ruling period, keeping the proletariat in poverty and hindering national production by its lethality. As Section 1 of the Party's "Cleanliness and Order" notice of the Revolutionary Purification and Pacification Agenda for the Foundation of the Nation had declared, any Euphorium found in the country would be promptly and securely burned, and any addicts sent to the mines or farmlands to shed their old afflictions through the detoxifying process of work.

Evve Terre would be referred to as a nation of "two-faced scoundrels" and publicly called out upon the 1st Party Congress for the alleged origination of the drug. "They have brought the pride of our nation and sanctity of our Party into question through their de-regulation of this violent substance, which invariably lead to a worldwide black market." Comrade Congressman Pi Xifeng would declare to the sound of roaring applause.

Another target for criticism would be remnants of the old Nian culture which inherently promoted gluttony and mindless lust. Party members would be seen enthusiastically smashing apart porcelain and ivory sculptures of the bourgeoise. Former landlords would be tried and hung for their long-stretching abuse of the peasantry in public mock trials. Any literature counter-intuitive to the Party's message would be burnt, all in the name of consolidating the rule of the worker.

As the Maoist state looks beyond its borders towards the neighboring states of Etrius, Empire of Gora, and Areleand, one could only hope that things in Liaoxian mellow out soon.

The process only takes a few hours, and shortly after they were done, the first of 72 Harrier GR.5s began their vertical descent to their new homes. |

TF.217 Moves in, TF.164 Puts to Sea:
|Just 20km from the Southern Island (which I still haven't been told the name of btw), the two Upholder Class SSKs slow to just 5 knots, slowly creeping just above the seabed to designated points 10km North and South of the island on silent running. In their cramped confines, each sub hosts an 8 Man Patrol team from the Special Boat Squadron. And so the anxious wait begins. Meanwhile on the carriers, within striking distance of the Southern Island, regular flight ops continue, though the 16 Harrier GR.5s dispersed over the ships are fuelled and loaded. The first 4 are launched from the light carrier HMS Implacable in quick succession, loaded for an Armed Recce flight prior to putting the SBS ashore. Sweeping in at 200ft over the sea, they keep a close eye on the threat warning systems as they approach the coastline.

On the 3 other carriers of the Task Group, 28 Sea Harriers are prepared for action. In the cramped hangars the fighters are checked, fuelled, and loaded with a pair of Sea Eagle missiles each. The strike was set for a few hours time. 150km North of the Group, one of their Nimrod MRA.4s swings north, listing away with the ESM.|

TF.164
|On the other side of the country, departing Belfast Naval Base into the Gulf of Konscoss, Task Force.164 begins to make steam, pushing West at a good 20 knots. TF.164 was a fast-carrier strike force, centred on the Centaur Class fleet carriers HMS Colossus, HMS Majestic and HMS Formidable, with the Invincible Class light carrier, HMS Indomitable. The purpose of this force was two-fold: 1 to ensure safe passage of commerce in the seas West of Anglorussia; 2. Situation permitting, conduct strikes on military and industrial targets - if the Wolfinite Navy was going to tie itself to it's own coastline, may as well make them pay for the sacrifice.

The escort force was near identical in size and position to TF.217's (it was a generic formation, applicable to many situations, which is why it was chosen), with only the submarine force differing, and rather than an L-shape, the force maintained a broad wedge ahead of the carrier group, with the remaining escorts forming a rear ward semi-circle around the Task Force.

Submarines were still the primary concern - it was entirely plausible that the Wolfinite Navy could have positioned several in their path in an attempt to shut down the Gulf, so 16 Sea King HAS.5 ASW helicopters are kept on station at any one time. With active sonobouys and dipping sonar, they patrol up to 50km put from the group, working with smaller Lynx HAS.2 from the Frigates to identify spurious sonar contacts. From the mainland, 3 Nimrod MRA.4s are kept on station, sweeping up to 200km ahead of the fleet, in addition to the regular Nimrod patrols flown over the seas around the Anglorussian Union. These Nimrods lay sonobouy fields and search with radar and ESM gear for radar contacts or emissions.

50km North-West and North-East of the group 2 Sea King AEW birds are kept on station, with two CAPs of 4 Sea Harrier FA.2s 50km further than that, plus a third CAP kept over the cruisers. The submarine force (3 Trafalgar and 4 Swiftsure Class SSNs), again was 150-200km ahead, in a broad screen ahead of the force, sprinting and drifting under the thermal layer, fixed and towed sonar systems operating on passive.|

RP: News

It was a quiet day at the Office of the President when a team of Secret Service agents entered the room with Minister of Defense Alphonse Hunt at the helm. President Hoffman almost dared question it, but he knew his place; he knew who was really in charge. As Minister Hunt took the seat on the other end of the President's desk, his security detail exited the room. Hunt's cold eyes locked with Hoffman's, sending a stinging twitch down his spine. Part of Hoffman wanted to break from underneath his thumb. He hated this act of corruption with every fiber of his being; he just wanted to be a good President. Yet here he was, a puppet to his own Minister, the mastermind behind the encroaching full takeover.

"President Hoffman, its time I briefed you on a... troubling matter," Hunt stated in his gruff, unrelenting voice. "A few months ago, I received a call from Blayredeshia. They told us, now get this, to 'back Boran's claim to the throne.'" President Hoffman's brow raised and the corners of his mouth twitched.

"What?" He exclaimed, taken aback. "What does that even mean? Who is 'Boran'?"

"I had no clue either, so I did a bit of digging," Hunt explained. "Turns out she's the younger sister of the Emperor of Khosrau, daughter of the exiled Solara Anushirawan-Alore. Even worse, this Boran is here in Schwypia attempting to lead a coup and reinstall the monarchy."

"A monarchist plot..." Hoffman's voice trailed off as he looked down to his desk. He was quite familiar with the Anushirawan-Aloreian line, as he had long taught it when he was a professor. The matriarch of the line, Dawn Alore, had seized control of the nation almost exactly 100 years ago, give a few months. In truth, he admired the work of the now deposed royal family. For a moment, he thought of himself on the Royal Council by the Monarch's side, but shook away the thoughts as his head rocked from side to side. "So, what's the plan then?"

"Blayredeshia threatens to cut us off if we don't comply. Heh, how resolute of them... and utterly useless. Just another mean to an end, I say. Screw 'em. They don't want to give us guns any more? Pfha! We have no need for their simple trinkets. We control the army, the navy, and hold a coalition majority in Parliament. We have no need for them any more."

"Then... what of Boran?"

"Simple: eliminate her."

RP: Boran: In Too Deep

100 years ago, Boran's grandmother took control of a nation. It seemed almost scary how history repeated itself, so Boran observed. Seeing the people around her, she could tell the Schwypians didn't know exactly what to think. Should they be celebrating a national hero, or would that undermine the Republic? Regardless, it was undoubtable that Dawn was still seen as that shining hero. This was proven by the face that watched them on their 50 Xollak notes and by the thirty foot statue of her in the city's downtown. Yet Boran feared that they would fear when the time came. It would be natural, of course, as she would be speaking treason, but she ultimately hoped that they would at least listen, even if they trembled during. She would reveal herself in early October to align the event with Queen Dawn's Coup: October 8th-October 11th, 2035. But for Boran, it would be different. There would be no military coup, just a call to arms. She would reveal the intentions of the current administration and, ultimately, stop the Nationalist Mastermind from usurping the nation; this would be her test of strength.
Just then, a suppressed, yet ever-prevalent bang rippled through the dusk air. The bricks of the building mere inches from her face exploded from a bullet's impact, slashing her cheeks with the debris. Thinking fast, Boran dived behind the dumpster in the adjacent alleyway.

An assassin! Boran rapidly thought. Who's work is this? It couldn't be Alois; I don't think he has the heart. Could it be?... Boran stopped thinking; there wasn't time. Weaving her way through the alley, she emerged several blocks away and hailed a cab. She didn't even remember where she told the cab driver to go, she just knew it wasn't home and that she'd given him a lot of money. Her mind lingered on the visage of death which confronted her not moments before. She rubbed at her raw cheeks, reflecting on just how close she'd come to death. She knew the government was now after her. Who else could it be? Well, it didn't matter to her. She knew it would happen eventually. She would have to be more cautious from here on out. And that would start now; she had a meeting to attend.

Archron Empire. Roma. I'm coming.

RP: Zeta

Before Boran boarded her flight for Archron, she felt a rumble in her pocket. Odd, who would call at this late hour? At the E-16 terminal gate in Milare International Airport, she raised her phone to her face. There was no number on the screen; it simply read 'Unknown.' She didn't care.

She raised the phone to one ear and said, "Hello?"

"Hello Boran," a robotically distorted voice replied. "Consider me an ally. You were attacked today, where you not?" Boran's eye widened as she drew the phone close.

"What do you know about it?" She asked in a whisper. "Who are you?" There was a brief pause on the other end.

"Call me Zeta," the distorted voice responded. "I know that the government wants you dead. I'll be your personal eyes and ears within the government; I'll warn you if they intend to strike again."

"How can I trust you?" Boran hissed.

"You'll have to. Anyways, I hope you don't mind, but I've done a bit of tinkering with your phone. I've erased all of your contacts and have taken you off the satellite grid. The government can no longer track you... well, except for me. I've made it so that this secure line is the only connection your phone can make. Think of it as a paired walkie-talkie. I'll continue to feed you information when it arrives. Zeta, out." The call was dropped and Boran lowered her arm.

A mole? She smiled, damn-near laughed. Alright, I can work with this.

After a tribal nation by the name of Homo sapiens neanderthalensis was founded on the northeastern border of Windardia, the latter's government was divided. On one hand, the President and her supporters wanted to send an ambassador to meet with the residents there. On the other hand, a number of people (mostly Nationalists) have called the nation one of "savages", one that must be left alone. After days of arguing, an ambassador accompanied by 20 military trained bodyguards arrived in Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, looking for the 3 chiefs. Countless Windardias hold their breath: the Nationalists have said if the ambassador or any of his bodyguards are harmed while in Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, it means war. This is mostly an empty threat, as the Nationalists don't hold any real power and Windardia doesn't even have a proper military yet.
However, if the ambassador, one Lamdo Corris, or any of his bodyguard are harmed, there will be diplomatic problems.

The sun was rising over the Toros Valley. Takkar got out of his hut and prepared for the hunt. Suddenly, a young hunter appeared running at the entrance to the village. He recounted that strange creatures had been seen near the singing river. Immediately the tribe began to worry. Takkar offered to accompany the hunter to the strange creatures to solve the problem. After a four-hour walk, they reached the icy plains northeast of the valley. The young hunter showed him where the strange creatures had been sighted, and then left Takkar alone. Takkar made a small fire and ignited his club. the cold was beginning to feel. Then he began to track the creatures. After half an hour of searching, he found them. The creatures had the appearance of a man taller, an iron bird were next to them. Gods, thought Takkar. He slowly approached the twenty "men." He finally came out of the thicket and slowly approached the gods. They saw him and began to designate him by speaking a language he did not know. Takkar Takkar tried to communicate by saying "Juwa Tribe". Then, he gently pulled a dead rabbit out of his purse and laid it before the gods. Then he pulled out a knife and opened the beast in half. This sacrifice would appease the gods. Then he left, looking at them one last time : As a herd of mammoths approached, the Gods looked at the dead rabbit and took him.

The arrival of the Xin-Fael battleship at Essence would mark the first time any people or vessels had reached the Athejian islands in two years, and they were likely to be the last for the time being. The carnage that permeated the city would be a terrifying sight to behold. Xin-Fael personnel often shared stories about the awesome angelic peoples of the Athejian islands and many believed them invincible. Of course, the Conglagateian War proved that sentiment wrong, but still, the myth persisted among the ranks of the Federation. To see so much carnage, both angelic and demonic, was too much for many of the sailors aboard the Tseng Wuxin to bear.

Captain Auresse Elsinore would lead her team to meet with the Sword Saints, making their way through the ruins of the once-bustling city. The swirling mass in the backdrop gave the whole situation an ominous feel, and rightly so. Entering into the meeting room with her lieutenant, Gi Nakasa, the pair would listen in on the consulting of the various Sword Saints and, to their surprise, the Icewindian leader Esolda. After hearing Esolda's... simple plan, Captain Elsinore would pipe up.

Elsinore: "So what tactics have we tried? I'm not sure the continuous shelling is doing anything but keeping that at bay, and we certainly can't just fly in there without any protection. I also doubt that killing everything that comes out of there is a viable long-term solution. I figure the best solution is to go in there and stop whatever unholy abomination is at play.

After the fall of Beilan, the People's Liaoxian had entered a massive time of economic transition. The single greatest land reform movement in history had recently taken place, giving lands back to the people through means of sprawling agrarian communes and heavy industrial blocks. As the indoctrinated red guard lead the enthusiastic march to a simpler life free from the complexities and abuses of the Nian Dynasty, the Revolutionary Party of the Beloved Motherland began to shift its priorities into the long-term liberation of the worker from the shackles of foreign capitalism. Thusly, it fell on the Party and Liaoxianic Revolutionary Red Army to form society into the revolutionary principle of discipline and martyr-like fervor.

The first target of destruction? Euphorium. Through either direct selling or indirect smuggling, it had become an epidemic in the Nian Dynasty's ruling period, keeping the proletariat in poverty and hindering national production by its lethality. As Section 1 of the Party's "Cleanliness and Order" notice of the Revolutionary Purification and Pacification Agenda for the Foundation of the Nation had declared, any Euphorium found in the country would be promptly and securely burned, and any addicts sent to the mines or farmlands to shed their old afflictions through the detoxifying process of work.

Comrade Congressman Pi Xifeng would declare to the sound of roaring applause.

Another target for criticism would be remnants of the old Nian culture which inherently promoted gluttony and mindless lust. Party members would be seen enthusiastically smashing apart porcelain and ivory sculptures of the bourgeoise.

Suddenly, a young hunter appeared running at the entrance to the village. He recounted that strange creatures had been seen near the singing river. Immediately the tribe began to worry. Takkar offered to accompany the hunter to the strange creatures to solve the problem. After a four-hour walk, they reached the icy plains northeast of the valley. The young hunter showed him where the strange creatures had been sighted, and then left Takkar alone. Takkar made a small fire and ignited his club. the cold was beginning to feel. Then he began to track the creatures. After half an hour of searching, he found them. The creatures had the appearance of a man taller, an iron bird were next to them. Gods, thought Takkar. He slowly approached the twenty "men." He finally came out of the thicket and slowly approached the gods. They saw him and began to designate him by speaking a language he did not know. Takkar Takkar tried to communicate by saying "Juwa Tribe". Then, he gently pulled a dead rabbit out of his purse and laid it before the gods. Then he pulled out a knife and opened the beast in half. This sacrifice would appease the gods. Then he left, looking at them one last time : As a herd of mammoths approached, the Gods looked at the dead rabbit and took him.

RP: Contact Has Been Made
The encounter with the two natives had taken the Windardians aback. Although they didn't understand a lick of what they had said, Lamdo Corris recognized they seemed to fear him and his bodyguards, and had offered a rabbit to them. After setting up camp for the night, Corris said "They think we're gods of some kind. I recognize them as coming from the Juwa Tribe, the most peaceful of the three. They will not harm us. For the other two, I cannot say the same." Corris took the slain rabbit out of his pack and gave it to one of his bodyguards. "Find them and return this. We must teach them we are not gods."
"Sir yes sir!" the bodyguard saluted, took the rabbit and disappeared into the night.
"You." Corris said, pointing to another bodyguard. "Contact the President. We'll report our findings." The radioman set up a signal, which was picked up by the President's secretary. They were put through to the President, who was happy to hear from them.
"Ms. President, we've contacted one of the tribes and have stopped for today. May I request we come back home?"
"I'm afraid not, Mr. Corris. I sent you there to contact all the tribes. One will not do."
Corris held back a sigh. "Of course, Ms. President." He flicked off the radio and looked back to his men. "We'll camp here until the Parliamentary Elections. If the Nationalists win enough seats, we'll be taken back." Although not the greatest of plans, the bodyguards found it better than contacting the other 2 tribes, especially the cannibalistic one they had been briefed on.

The rabbit bearing soldier made his way to the village after hours of searching. With a flashlight in hand, rabbit in the other, he looked for the man who had offered it to them. He found him, and offered the rabbit. The bodyguard knelt on one knee and offered the rabbit above his head. The bodyguard looked up to see the man was confused. The bodyguard stood up and shined his flashlight on the rabbit in his hand. "It's yours. Take it." After the rabbit wasn't taken, the bodyguard set it on the ground at the man's feet. He tipped his helmet, then began to start the long walk back.

RP : The Returning Sacrifice

Takkar was confused. One of the gods had brought him the rabbit. He had returned to the south to find the nearest Juwan village and return it to him. The gods did not want a sacrifice ? Were they angry with his tribe? Takkar watched the man walk away. When suddenly, a saber-toothed tiger leaps at the man and is about to slash him. Takkar and a few hunters rushed towards the beast, spears and bows in hand. Takkar threw himself on the beast, and after a hard fight, the beast fled injured, but alive. The god had a lacerated arm. He was bleeding abundantly. He was transported unconscious to the shaman, and treated with plants from the Toros valley. Then, Takkar and some hunters set off on foot towards the North-East, to join the other gods. Although the gods do not bleed. They are not gods, Takkar thought. Arrived at the surroundings of the camp of the other men, Takkar deposited the wounded man in evidence, well they returned to the village, the road would be long.
Not far from there, a Morok scout saw the Juwa and went back to The Glacier to warn his people.

RP: Eastern Economic Upturn Uppercuts West Evven Endeavors (Evve Terre)
As anyone who has kept a long eye on the Western Evve would know, there have been many government endeavors throughout its history to preserve culture. As a result, there have been many government agencies that attempted to dictate what was and wasn't cultured, and thus did or didn't require preservation. Enter the Evven National Recording Agency (ENRA), a government organization that was not only Evve Terre's ONLY record label, but one that somewhat dominated the Letanrican region.

This has taken a turn, however, as a rise in East Evven industrial output and general prosperity has led to the rise of its own music scenes and, as a result, its own domestic record labels.
These labels, having no government-imposed filter on who can and can't sign with them, are likely to pick up many of their nation's promising artists, as well as some of the West's rejected artists.

On top of this, East Evvia controls much of the Euphorium industry in the form of the Icewindian and Archian markets, while Evve Terre's only foreign Euphorium market is in the Archian region of New Sedran.
