The being emerges from the tree line. It towers above the men, unknown whether or not the skull is its head or some adornment, the skin and flesh creak like wood yet do not break like wood, and long claws at the end of its apparent fingers are sharpened, and look quite capable of causing significant harm. Ravens perch upon it's antlers. The whispers echo from within the skull.

RP: spreading?

A cloud defying weather patterns is seen heading for Ygdzenge. It appears to drop in altitude and become more similar to a fog than a cloud and it still moves toward the Shaman king. Some might see outlines of individuals within the mobile mist.

RP: meeting the locals

The ravens leave the wall and return to the tree tops in silence as a portion of the wall parts to allow for the outsiders to enter. On the other side, there lies a veritable natural haven, The sun shines clearly in among the brightened and fogless trees, despite the whole land being completely unobservable from the top due to clouds. Suddenly, this scene begins to look like an escort as 4... armed and armored unknown beings with canine heads riding enormous wolves the size of horses appear, two from either side.

"Follow" One manages to get through its hoarse and gravely voice.

There are a few cloaked in pure white robes which had casted the light from within the fog, one woman armed with a thin longsword and dressed in an all black dress from where the fog recedes into as its forced to disperse by the light, and the last individual is a large man with hair that moves like clouds and a glaive on his back.

RP: Successful Forge
(About a year late on this)
The month spent on creating Saint Michael the Archangel's spear was a long month spent down in the belly of the volcano. The intense heat utilized by the forge masters created a spear that had a tip made of pure tungsten and a shaft of steel, mined from the Middean Mountains. Yet it had other properties to it. It was imbued with power beyond just the strength of the metals, power of divine strength. Pope Castias Hranji blessed the spear once it was finished by bathing it in a pool of holy water and smoking it with incense. The spear glowed with a sort of "otherworldly" light, one that was radiant but not blinding.

The testing chamber was a hollowed-out lava tube that was converted from a storage area into a testing chamber with various objects set up to test the strength and sharpness of the weapons made in the forge. Hranji held the spear and made a lunge, testing its weight with a simple strike. Out of the spear came a bolt of white lightning that connected with the metal chains in the room and blew out the lights. "God has given us the power of lightning. This spear, a replica of the Archangel's, is now ready to be recognized as a holy artifact."

RP: Creating the next weapon
The forge was now confirmed to be a holy site. The successful testing of the Spear of Michael the Arch Angel has given the Church what it wanted, a place to create useful holy artifacts. The next item on the list was a greatsword for the now-retired king of Basaran, Ulysses Marlyn.

The specifications were simple as Ulysses' greatsword was to be used as the model. The forge masters were put to work with the new slew of materials being demanded from the mines in Middea.

RP: The Ephyra Trials and The Queen's First Order
With the civil war now behind the nation and the people finally settling down to return to a life of normality, the new queen of Basaran, Mirvelle Marlyn, disturbed the soils. Many high-ranking officials were arrested during the war with all but Charles Mannfred put into prison. Charles Mannfred was found dead in his bunker, shot by a suspected usurper or traitor. The remainder of Charles' government awaited trial for their "Crimes Against Democracy and the People of Basaran." The people arrested also came from the Syndicalist government as well, those who had survived the wrath of the Totalists.

The trial lasted 2 years and of the 107 arrested people, 40 were sentenced to death, 4 died of illness, and 3 committed suicide, the other 60 to life in prison. The men and women accused in the trials were questioned for 3 things:

Crimes against the Republic: Conspiracy or action to destabilize, falsify or sabotage the electoral process
Crimes against the Basars: Conspiracy or action to deliberately target civilians, neutral ships, or use unconventional weapons against soldiers (Excessive use of fire and napalm)
Crimes against Peace: Conspiracy or action to destabilize the nation, incite violence, or spark a war

To be sentenced to death, a person must be convicted of all 3 crimes or committed enough or serious violations against one of the 3. The choice of death was narrowed to 3: Hanging, firing squad, and napalm bath.

Charles Mannfred was convicted post-mortem and his corpse was subjected to a napalm bath. He was the only person to receive the napalm bath.
Field Marshall Derek Walsh, who led the fight against the Archian and Monarchist front, was convicted of all 3 crimes and sentenced to death by firing squad
Field Marshall Isaac Carols, who led the fight against the Blayredeshian and Icewindian front, was convicted of all 3 crimes and sentenced to death by firing squad
Former President Adrienna Benze was convicted of Crimes against Peace and sentenced to life in prison
Admiral George Hansen, of the Totalist Navy, was convicted for Crimes against Peace and the Republic and sentenced to death by hanging
Scientist Fredrick Gerrand, a scientist who led the Totalist's research on methods of torture, was convicted for crimes against Basars and sentenced to death by hanging
The list went on to name a dozen more people of notable caliber in the former governments and the punishments alternating between them...

Days after the trials finished, Queen Mirvelle released a collection of notices to congress which read:
"We've witnessed the destruction of the left first hand. We've seen what they are capable of and what lengths they will go to, to secure victory. We can't let them take root in this country again. The deaths of the former left-ist leaders have given us lifted spirits and a road to a new and better Basaran. Today, I myself propose a bill to the congressional body, one that'll forever ban Syndicalism and Communism from this nation. Today, we turn over a new leaf, and tomorrow, we'll be renewed."

There was a mixed response from both the media and the public, some of whom feared a sudden rise in political oppression as a result of this "Ban of the Left". Many middle-aged Basars grew up during the reign of Syndicalism and only understood the life of the union worker. Though, as they're set to replaced by the younger generation, who witnessed the disaster of the civil war, seem to be much in favor of the Queen's resolution. Time will tell however if the new monarchy will retain its light of liberation or if it'll fall victim to the toils of politics.

With the militaries of Archron empire and Nonadia in place to secure the peace, most of the chaos of factions vying for control of the islands outside of the military bases dies off. Kowenian civilians continue to swarm aid outlets established by the Archian and Nonadian governments, as the infrastructure and supplies the local island governments had before the collapse were either almost entirely destroyed, in disrepair, or consumed.

Nonadia
The Nonadian side of the Kowenian Islands (or as the Nonadians refer to as the “Point Lovin Islands”) has seen a lot of civil disobedience as most of the citizens there protest the fact that the Nonadian government is continuing to move Nonadian citizens to the islands. The arguments against the move range from the lack of resources that already cause the islands to suffer to the violation of the islands’ sovereignty.

Any civilian Nonadians on the islands expect it to be a sort of vacation in a new place, but instead are thrown into an unwelcome environment that doesn’t want them there. Regularly the reorganized police force of the Third Imperial Provision Government (and even the Nonadian military in dire circumstances) is forced to put more resources into keeping the peace and protecting Nonadians from Kowenian locals, with the outbreak of violence against the Nonadians have seen a rise as more and more Nonadians are moved to the islands. The Kowenians have also objected as most of the islanders continue to live in poverty and that the Nonadian government (and Third Imperial Provision Government) is more focused on ensuring they don’t revolt instead of improving their quality of life as well the Nonadians.

Archron empire
Soon after the chaos dies down, many are in question of what will happen next to the Archian side of the Kowenian Islands. Immediately, locals have begun to reconvene on their own to reform their own local government. Others fear the Archians may form their own government for the islands like what the Nonadians did, which will subvert the islanders choices.

Artaecus
While the Archian/Nonadian side of the islands tries to pick it self back up, the Artaecusian side of the islands has seen an accelerated rate of economic growth which is comparable with some of the mainland Kowenian States. This is thanks mainly in part due to technological and infrastructure development that has made fishing much more profitable and able to catch more types and loads of fish, shellfish, and other types of seafood which has seen a spike in demand of the Kowenian mainland. The local Kowenian government of the Artaecusian side of the islands has reached out to the Artaecusian government for help in funding and planning out the development of nuclear reactors on the islands as well (or other energy plants) to help feed the continuing cycle of growth and demand the Artaecusian side is undergoing.

Artaecus wrote:RP || East Kowen: Reform

    After seeing a period of stability, and with the construction of new and highly efficient nuclear power plants across East Kowen, the Artaecusian Government has decided it is now the time to continue reforms within the nation to improve both the quality of life and give East Kowenians the same kind of opportunities Incheonians have.

    One of the largest changes was the dismantlement of the East Kowenian Army, and the establishment of the East Kowenian Defense Force (EKDF). This newly formed defense force will be tasked with the main objective of defending East Kowen from external and internal threats, including terrorism and will be exclusively volunteers only. Citizens ranging from 18 to 25 are able to volunteer for the force, and if they pass background checks, are immediately cleared to start their training. The force itself will be trained, and equipped, by members of the Artaecusian Legions. Excercises shall be conducted alongside the Artaecusians, and occasionally, members of the Incheon Defense Force to better prepare for a hypothetical invasion by neighbouring countries.

    Education is also being reformed, to better fit the Artaecusian comparatively high standards. With the addition of certain subjects like Artaecusian being a mandatory language now, the education system also focuses on building tolerance of other Kowenian nations such as Incheon to attempt to cut down on the unnecessary hatred and discrimination. Electives are also being implemented in the education system, allowing students of East Kowen to pick and choose two or more subjects of their liking.

    Several changes regarding import laws have been altered to be more lenient with the situation within East Kowen becoming more stable. This has allowed countless of Artaecusian products to flood the market, ranging from commodities to tech-related products such as Hyperion smartphones and VR headsets. With import taxes still somewhat high however, some East Kowenians may not be able to afford some of the more expensive and high-tech commodities from Artaecus.

RP
With the dismantlement of the old regime’s East Kowenian Army, there are a lot of questions still regarding how to help people transition from a life in the military to a civilian life. With the old communist East Kowenian government using a conscription system, it has now seen a large reduction in personnel and a lot of those personnel who have their new found freedom and struggling to adjust to the new government and life they find themselves in. This has led to a reasonable concern of large groups of ex-military joining or finding themselves in extremist or paramilitary groups, which would result in a rise of terrorism and cause more instability within the nation.

There have been mainly two proposed solutions to solve the issue, one coming from each side of the political spectrum in East Kowen. The political left has suggested turning any experience or training that conscripts gained be transferred over into qualification and credits for education to help them gain access to more, and better paying civilian jobs.

The right of the political spectrum has instead suggested that the East Kowenian Defense Force offer bonuses to conscripts, advancements, and other incentives to stay within the East Kowenian military or offer similar incentives to work with the federal East Kowenian government (although the main focus they admit is the military.) East Kowenian conservatives argue that their plan would retain a large amount of conscripts, and would allow the East Kowenian Defense Force to survive long enough until newer generations of volunteers can pick up the mantle where the ex-conscripts left off.

“The last thing we want is for our military to completely disappear over night, we could be starting from square one all over again with the amount of personnel who ditch the military simply because there’s no benefit to stay in.” Said a conservative host of a local talk radio station in the capital with an interview with The Kowenian Star.

The new military high command, while being created under the guidance of the Artaecusian government, has also showed to be resistant to the idea of training and cooperating with the Incheon Defense Force.

The changes to the East Kowenian education system have been more welcomed though, as the old system was seen as nothing more then another mode of propaganda for the communist government to exploit for their gain. The idea of having electives in education seems pretty revolutionary to the Kowenians, as most had been used to a system where they had to take mandatory classes for their degrees and studies rather then being able to change them for other subjects.

The conservatives, however, seem appalled by the idea though of the Artaecusian government attempting to reform the education system to be more tolerant of other governments within Kowen. While the communist East Kowenian regime encouraged it’s citizens to ridicule and foster hatred for Incheon City, and even Nakatoro; it has been a taboo subject to talk about with most of the public.

The Artaecusian companies attempting to flood the East Kowenian market has seen some limited success, as most Kowenians have begun to indulge in some basic consumer goods (such as owning a car) although only the economic elite of the East Kowenians are able to enjoy some of the more high tech products Artaecus has to offer. The lack of infrastructure, such as cellular towers and widespread internet connection, is also a major reason why most higher end Artaecusian products seem to not be taking off with the public as a whole.

The Cadarian Diplomats accept the Kowenian position and will negotiate trade agreements with each nation. The diplomats do suggest exchanging embassies to allow easier interaction for trade but also for possible future agreements.

RP: Damned if you do, damned if you don’t
As the diplomats with New cadaria continue to negotiate trade deals and the ideas of setting up embassies, they also notice a sort of rivalry between the Kowenian States. Each of them claim to be the legitimate government of Kowen, and truly represent the Kowenian people as a whole.

The Cadarians also notice something... larger at play as well.

Looking at the surface, the Cadarians see a sort of almost hostile nature existing between:

The various governments of the Kowenian States and the Artaecusian backed Incheon City.

Along with the various Kowenian governments and the Schwypian recognized Nakatoro.

Upon a further investigation by the Cadarians, they soon realize while these Kowenian states all claim to be the legitimate governments. Incheon City and Nakatoro seem to be existing outside of the idea of being part of Kowen (or in Nakatoro’s case, is recognized as being part of a foreign nation entirely.) The Kowenian States don’t recognize them being independent, or straight up call them terrorists and rebels. The Cadarians are left with three pretty interesting options after making the discovery:

1. They can continue on as plan to negotiate trade deals and open up embassies with the Kowenian States, Incheon City, and Nakatoro.

2. They can withdraw their diplomats from Incheon City and Nakatoro, essentially standing with the Kowenians in the position that Incheon City and Nakatoro are illegitimate nations. This would almost certainly have the Kowenians view Cadaria in a more positive light, as they support the Kowenian side of the issue. This could also be seen as a plus with the Cadarian nationalists, as they would be seen as standing in solidarity with the Kowenian nationalists. This could, however, be grounds for reprisal by Incheon terrorist groups or the Incheon and Nakatoro governments directly.

3. They can withdraw their diplomats from the Kowenian States, and instead focus their resources on Nakatoro and Incheon City. This would unquestionably make the Kowenian States hostile to Cadaria, but would make the Cadarians seem sympathetic towards the cause of these breakaway states from the dysfunctional nation that is Kowen. (This could also serve as to boost Cadaria’s reputation with Schwypia and Artaecus, by backing their claims and interests in the region.)

4. The Cadarians could withdraw their diplomats from the region entirely; which could anger all parties involved, but could save the Cadarians from making some tough decisions later on by not being involved in such an unstable region.

The Assassin missed, and the Secret Service quickly apprehended the man. The Empress looked over to the assassin as he was being taken away by local authorities and said “Missed me” in an attempt to calm the panicking crowd. After further investigation, it has been discovered that the man was Paul Monson, one of the most influential leaders in the Communist Party and member of the CPM. (Communist Party Militia). The reputation of communism in Kiamai was down-spiraling fast.

Artaecus wrote:RP || Archron empire: Proposal

    The Artaecusian Government has pushed forward a request to the Archian Government on the procurement of liquid Archinite both military and testing purposes regarding the substance. It details the specified amount to be supplied to Artaecus every month, with payments being made every six months. The procurement request will last a minimum of 10 years, with the possibility to increase this upwards to 30 years. The procurement for liquid Archinite has been largely influenced after research had been conducted on the substance in a slightly modified M8A4. It was found that after some modifications to the Gas Turbine, the vehicle is able to accept liquid Archinite with combat effectiveness and range increasing upwards to 75% compared to regular consumption of JP-8.

    On other matters, a company has pushed forward their proposal to the Archian Government regarding their aging jets. Coming from the developers of the Advance Tactical Fighter program that spawned the F/A-23, the proposed fighter was noted to be more radical in terms of design and capability. While no prototype has been built, data from simulations while not fully disclosed, has been stated to be just as capable as the F/A-23 while introducing newer technology that the F/A-23 could not use due to design compromises of being a multi-role fighter.

RP: Accepting the Artaecusians proposals

As Artaecus comes forth with its request and of[ proposals, Archron has agreed to both. Archron has begun shipping the Liquid goods, and has also sent its designs and blueprints to the Artaecusians, for a more in depth and cooperative approach.

Panicked by the Artaecusian and Nonadian military forces on their border with East Kowen, the South Kowenian government sends a diplomat to East Kowen to negotiate in an attempt to reach a peaceful end to the disagreement. With the diplomat offering an open investigation into the alleged involvement of the South Kowenian government with Kowenian terrorist groups in Incheon City, he also states that the South Kowenian government would like to help in combatting terrorism in Incheon City with the help of Artaecus and Nonadia.

The South Kowenian government also appeals to the Werewolf Islands, due to them being responsible for the creation of the current South Kowenian government. They ask for the wolves to mobilize their forces in South Kowen, to send more troops, and to publicly state they would back Sourh Kowen in any conflict it could get into.

RP: Uhhhh...

After debate amongst parliament, parliament was pretty much in agreement to get involved to help the South Kowenians, siting a guarantee the Republic made decades ago. It was brought up to Queen Aerial for her to approve it only for Aerial to squawk furiously at the paper. It seems to be a hard no from Aerial to get involved. This move will have a good chance to damage relations with the South and the Kowenian Refugee Population.

With Mount Asphalt's main eruption concluded, the mountain continues to erupt quite peacefully, spewing magma into the air vertically as ash and smoke continue to billow upwards gently. Lightning can be occasionally seen in the ash clouds producing a unique display of fire and lightning, especially at night. Ash begins to gently fall up to 34 kilometers west of the volcano, Yellow River, a city of 40 million, well within that 34 kilometers. The ash isn't extreme, up to a millimeter has fallen, however to the East, up to 4 inches has fallen, any homes that have survived could see their roofs collapse, up to a million have begun leaving to get out of the way. Parliament has begun voting on evacuation orders as a State of Emergency is declared. Evacuation teams begin helping volcano refugees leave the affected areas as masks made to help prevent people breathing in the ash begin mandatory across Fang Island as Air Traffic is redirected to avoid the ash cloud. Highways are shut down and curfew is in place in Yellow River. No deaths have been recorded but injuries in the thousands are noted, mainly lacerations from glass, blown ear drums, and other injuries. The volcano could continue to erupt for many days, weeks, or even months. However this eruption could give insight on how to predict these disasters as it came with little warning. The volcano when it stops, will most likely not erupt for up to another century. The eruption has been cataloged as one of the most powerful in the nation's history on the Volcano Explosivity Index of 5.

Cametz, New Sedran Mainland. Zekeian Bunker #5, Harbinger of the last remnants

The air wisps of brisk ice and the ground hard as steel. Hired guns, a group of 20, follow Eden herself. As they step foot to the Zekeian bunker, the sight rubs against Eden. Betraying her homeland for power has never felt so wrong.

Upon stepping forward, Defenses would trigger. Automated Turrets would drop and point to the group. However, within a few seconds, clicking would be heard from them.

“Herman, the door”
Her accent would slither its way to a young man. He would step forward and begin opening the door. Has the door was open a third of the way, heavy walking could be heard

“Well Well Well... The Archians have found us... They shall not destroy us here!”
A robotic yet metallic voice would form from the walking. 4 Proto blades, two being blue, and the other two being green, would shine bright. However, something more troublesome would shine. Zekeians, laid dormant, standing, would come to life. The Young man would stand in shock. That shock, would be fatal. Severe coughing could be heard as a 7’3 machine would lunge forward, and plant all 4 of its proto blades into the boy. The Door would open wide as Droids, acting as Zombies, would dredge forward. The Machine would laugh and pull its blades out
“I, Pilate, will not be made a fool!”

The Archians would raise their weapons
“Halt! We come to compromise! Banshee must be stopped!”

Pilate, wearing his aged armor, would have what remaning parts of his former body, being his eyes, brain and heart, all shutter
“Stop... Stop!”

The Droids would cease, and turn to Pilate
“Banshee... Who are you? What gives you authority to use that name?”

“I am... Eden Von Braun. The Daughter of Olga Von Braun, I heard you two worked togeth-“

“I will not speak of that witch... She is what got Zekeia into this state!”

“Listen... I want the Karz side of the Family, to drop dead. You want Numotu, we can work this out”

Pilate would stare at her

“Come... Must we not speak in the open... Archron is always watching...”

Pilate would lead the Archians within the vault, and sealed it.

“That.... Karz should have let her rot in Prison!”
He stood and laid his blade down
“I want men on that bunker, to hell what New Sedran says!”

RP :SOUTH VOYTANA SECURITY COUNCIL

INTRODUCTORY WORD BY PRIME MINISTER DANIJELA MILANOVIĆ: Dear friends, welcome to Katanija!
What we do here and what we run can change the world and make it a better measure of life.
Instructed by the recent events in Ruskoye uls and Windardia, our task would be to ensure democratic processes, to protect the parade of refugees and displaced persons, and to ensure the possibility of return.
The only way to do that is if we unite.
The Security Council is not an alliance as some interpret it, the Security Council is a political body with the aim of acting in the preservation of democratic principles, sovereignty and integrity of borders protected by the most vulnerable groups of societies.

In case we want to turn our actions into an alliance that will have an economic and military aspect, I suggest that all countries of the Security Council declare themselves and make proposals.
We are here to be democratic through talking about the situation and the turbulent times we are surrounded by.
The Government of DR Srednjaci always acts with aspects of respect and mutual respect.
So it will be now. For the benefit of all of us and the continuation of the dialogue, I propose the following vote
We ask the following members and their representatives to vote in favor of the two proposals:

- The South Voytana Security Council should remain only a political body that will only have the role of discussing and giving guidance.
- The Security Council of South Vojtana should be an alliance of members for better protection of borders, social order, protection of citizens and economic alliance with the aim of free trade.

RP: Hexiron’s stock price begins to settle after initial boom of investors
Investors say that the initial excitement of Hexiron (an Exbrenian company) has died out after the company’s stock price on the Kowenian Stock Exchange or better known as the Kowenian Exchange (KowEX,) after the stock’s increase in price has started to become more gradual after reaching a ₩7 million threshold which many average Kowenians saw as being too expensive for them and would rather spend their money on other things (although there are still some long term investors holding onto Hexiron stock.)

The spike in Hexiron’s stock price was nothing the country had ever seen before; starting off at ₩343,780 Wong to now ₩7,563,940 Wong: a staggering 2200% increase. The release of Hexiron’s stock has inadvertently made stock trading, a profession which was pretty small in West Kowen, to raise in popularity and has led to many stock brokers and investors already being well off due to buying and selling stock in Hexiron.

Gold Mount Capital, a mutual fund run by Minjae Financial and owning 40% of Hexiron’s stock, has made over hundreds of billions of Wong out of the deal. This has led to Gold Mount Capital being reclassified from a mutual fund to a hedge fund, as the banking corporation plans to have Gold Mount Capital focus on high risk-high return investments.

There has been some pressure on Hexiron to do a stock split to increase shares from the current 850,000. The company has not yet responded.

RP: A body on the beach

The young Zilita hunter Marak was fishing quietly in his small boat near the immense expanse of water that the ancients call "The great lake", when the weather suddenly darkens. Huge waves formed and drove poor Zilita away from his native land. Through the eddies and the wind, his frail boat could not resist. A huge wave rushed the small boat towards the seabed. Tossed by the sea, the corpse of the poor Zilita was thrown on the beach of a new country: The Charlesland.

Hemlock would quickly get his Hybrid Armor but would equip Tank Tracks like an WW2 Style Tank as Extra Armor then he would load up with an Standard Archian Weapon but also would bring his AG-100, his Experimental Revolver and had an Anti-Tank Gun, several Anti-Tank Grenades and his Modified China Lake as well. He would get onto his Dropship and bring along Sibir who will carry extra ammunition and accompany Hemlock on Mission. Of Course Sibir was given an Weapon for his Own Protection.

Hemlock was a good Soldier and He obeyed Orders especially ones from his Blood Brother. However this mission was personnel to him as he Knew he had a Chance to run into Eden. He believes it was her fault for Napoleons Death, so dead or Alive She is coming with Hemlock.

Kowenian States wrote:RP: Damned if you do, damned if you don’t
As the diplomats with New cadaria continue to negotiate trade deals and the ideas of setting up embassies, they also notice a sort of rivalry between the Kowenian States. Each of them claim to be the legitimate government of Kowen, and truly represent the Kowenian people as a whole.

The Cadarians also notice something... larger at play as well.

Looking at the surface, the Cadarians see a sort of almost hostile nature existing between:

The various governments of the Kowenian States and the Artaecusian backed Incheon City.

Along with the various Kowenian governments and the Schwypian recognized Nakatoro.

Upon a further investigation by the Cadarians, they soon realize while these Kowenian states all claim to be the legitimate governments. Incheon City and Nakatoro seem to be existing outside of the idea of being part of Kowen (or in Nakatoro’s case, is recognized as being part of a foreign nation entirely.) The Kowenian States don’t recognize them being independent, or straight up call them terrorists and rebels. The Cadarians are left with three pretty interesting options after making the discovery:

1. They can continue on as plan to negotiate trade deals and open up embassies with the Kowenian States, Incheon City, and Nakatoro.

2. They can withdraw their diplomats from Incheon City and Nakatoro, essentially standing with the Kowenians in the position that Incheon City and Nakatoro are illegitimate nations. This would almost certainly have the Kowenians view Cadaria in a more positive light, as they support the Kowenian side of the issue. This could also be seen as a plus with the Cadarian nationalists, as they would be seen as standing in solidarity with the Kowenian nationalists. This could, however, be grounds for reprisal by Incheon terrorist groups or the Incheon and Nakatoro governments directly.

3. They can withdraw their diplomats from the Kowenian States, and instead focus their resources on Nakatoro and Incheon City. This would unquestionably make the Kowenian States hostile to Cadaria, but would make the Cadarians seem sympathetic towards the cause of these breakaway states from the dysfunctional nation that is Kowen. (This could also serve as to boost Cadaria’s reputation with Schwypia and Artaecus, by backing their claims and interests in the region.)

4. The Cadarians could withdraw their diplomats from the region entirely; which could anger all parties involved, but could save the Cadarians from making some tough decisions later on by not being involved in such an unstable region.

RP: And so we've been damned.

After some consideration and debate among the diplomats, the senate and the President, The Republic of New Cadaria has decided to withdrawal its diplomats from Nakatoro and Incheon City.

The Republic will continue on with its efforts in the rest of the Kowenian States, especially West Kowen, South Kowen and Central South Kowen.

RP: The Cadarian Position

Representative Eleanor Kennedy of New Cadaria votes to keep the council a mere political body stating: "The Cadarian Republic is not yet ready to be tied down by a military alliance and feels that an economic one is unnecessary as the republic is already a member of the SET.
If however the rest of the representatives present feel that a military alliance is the path they wish to take, the Cadarian Republic is willing to settle for a 'Associate Status' where in they will still serve on the security councils advisory body but not be obligated to deploy their military on its behalf leaving that decision entirely up to the republic and vice versa, however we will as associates sign on to send material aid to any member state as they will for us as its obligation."

RP: The continued rise of Cadarian nationalism and political tension.

Both the First Citizens and Sovereign Monarchist Parties have seen a steady rise in support and have decided to form a coalition for the upcoming Senate elections. In response the Social Unity Party has increased its rhetoric calling for a true 'peoples revolution' with several SUP supported fringe groups starting small scale protests, nothing major has happened yet but a few have been declared riots and had to be forcibly dispersed.
Meanwhile the ruling Republican Liberty Party and the second largest party, the Progressive Union Party, have yet to consider either a threat and continue to put on political theater on the senate floor, much to the chagrin of the middle to lower class people of New Cadaria.

Approval for limited involvement in the civil conflict is welcomed within the queen's inner circle, allowing the Defense Commission to approve the mass delivery of arms and ammunition to the incumbent government in the form of 20,000 modern combat rifles and 5 million rounds as an initial investment. As a measure to cut slack for the windardians, this will come at zero initial cost and can be paid at a later date once hostilities cease. The open offer for direct intervention or increased material aid remains open, though may take a secondary position to the new war in the North.
Windardia
Concordaia

The flood of Liaoxian forces into the northern lowlands comes as little surprise to defense planners, as they had been in the middle of preparing for just such an occasion for the better part of a year since the broadcasted executions of nobles within the country.

The front line is to be divided into 3 command groups. Army Group East will fight along the coast, using massive artillery and naval bombardment to slow the advance and pin the flank in place. Army Group Center will use what is refered as ricochet warfare through the jungles with their more mobile formations as the Kirosi of old once had when threatened by Hassani armies before the unification to defend their homes once more. Army Group West will consist of the western flank of the Northern Army as well as the Western Army spearheaded by Khalladi Armored Divisions.

Total Current forces
- 20 Divisions
- 3 Auxiliary Brigades
290,000 Personnel
20,560 Unarmored Transports
1,790 Armored Fighting Vehicles
500 Main Battle Tanks
318 Towed Artillery
104 Self Propelled Artillery
104 MLRS

1 Helicopter Carrier
4 Cruisers
20 Destroyers
50 Frigates

144 Fighters
36 Strike Craft

It is estimated that reinforcements and replacements will be made available in the coming months.

On the Ideological front, the Kiros region that makes up the majority of the front had been predominantly socialist before the unification which causes some anxiety in the queens inner circle. However with the current Capitol residing nearby and the current dynasty being Kirosi born, nationalism runs high and resistance is stubborn. The current system provides for the population's universal necessities without taking away rights or threats of violence, causing the propaganda campaign to have startlingly low results.

In the Western mountainous section of the front, invaders are to be killed with extreme prejudice, as Khallad has a 3 thousand year history in the art of war to a point of near cultural obsession. Casualties are an accepted part of the reality but the long range firepower and heavy armor focus to deny the enemy direct conflict has served the ex military dictatorship quite well. When First General Saleem Kavorah was asked about sending reinforcements to the west, his only words were:
"May the gods have mercy on our enemies, because surely Khallad will have none"
The revolutionary superstate of liaoxian

Lady Natalia and First General/Heir Apparent Saleem are currently indisposed with the war in the North, in their place will be Foreign Minister Stephan Neffari and a handful of aids to attend the summit in Ivery to discuss the merger between the Silver Sphere and the Akshoss Federation.
