RP: Strange lands Indeed
Tazōd would hear the conversation, the Dzē being an analytic race, he quickly picked up not the language that these foreigners were speaking but with their tones he deduced one was curious, the other was weary and what he saw as the leader of the group was calming the situation. After recieving his tablet back he said:
Tazōd: "Aye, Ňōmdzōgdzōtur Kamvēnkēr can be seen. Soldier can guide you"
He then would turn his mount and make a tsk sound to make it start troting to a few tents where some soldiers met with him. He explained his purpose of report and explained that the foreigners needed guidance, he then assured that the Tribe's Militia could patrol the border section in their absence. Then the foreigners could see how 10 Soldiers mounted on these six-legged horses covered in scale armor approached. The 10 men wore a combination of plated and scaled iron armor with leather and apparently a layer of clothing below everything. The leader of the group then approached them and said:
Revan: "I am Revan of Tänd, i will guide you to the Shaman-King, please, follow us Trōdzō of Unknown Clan"
The group could see another 10 soldiers packing the military camp into what seemed to be bags made of Pelts and Leather, the entire camp was easily divided into wooden structures to support pelt covering, food supplies and medicinal supplies. One of the soldiers then let out a seemengly soundless vibration, which could only be felt as a vibration, then a majestic yet peaceful sound was heard...then they could see a marvelous site, not only was the previous Herder and his tribe responsible of taking care of Horses and Lizards, but of a group of 5 Sauropods, 20 meters in length. The Sauropods had visible mounts with attachements to easily pack up all of the camp. 5 soldiers then climbed through ladders to the Sauropods, who treated them as longtime friends.

Since the war has already concluded and everything had been done, the Kiamaian Government has refused to meet as it has other things to tend to and the meeting would be just a waste of plane fuel, money, and time considering relations hadn’t been established in the first place so things would barely change.
RP: OOC NOTICE
This is for everyone to take note but this also directly affects Blayredeshia. I'm doing a religious change, please refer to the attached FB for information. This change will be treated as if Basaran has always been worshipping this faith, and not Catholicism. This is simply to further separate my nation from IRL ideologies and issues.
' And the trees bent over and shook violently, dropping piles of sticks onto the floor. "Go tell the others of my gift to you, the stick runes shall speak for you..."'
The text goes on to refer to the tree as "Speaker of the Oakengrove" or simply, "Oakengrove". Oakengrove made a deal with the early Basars that, in return for receiving the ability to talk to others, they'll honor the forest by protecting it and paying homage. Later down the line, a moral compass was introduced which provided the foundation for modern laws.
The guiding rules of Florism are simple
1) Honor the Trees: This rule has 2 main interpretations, one being that no tree shall die under Basar care, the other being that any damage must be undone, the latter being the more accepted option
2) Honor the Season: This rule set the basics for the agricultural calendar informing the early Basars of when to plant what for the farms, as well as creating a timeline of what holidays came when
3) Honor Life: Controversial as of the latest era, it was largely believed to have been to deter early Basars from driving themselves extinct with needless infighting but as millennia passed and war became commonplace, the meaning adapted to instead refer to childbirth and cruel punishments
4) Honor the Grove: This rule set the style of worship and where to worship. Early Basars created grove circles within clusters of oak trees in which a large stone was then carved with the runes that spelled "Oakengrove" in Barunic as the original tree was believed to have been felled and burned after it died a millennia ago. Annual ceremonies dictate that ritualistic dancing and the use of incense and candles to re-bless the shrine in Oakengrove's name. The dancing would be performed by Dryads, women with a lot of natural beauty and in good health, often handpicked by the Druid.
Druid- A person who represents the will of the Grove, is often picked during the ritual of the Wisp
Ritual of the Wisp- A ceremony in which the Dryads perform a dance and communicate with Oakengrove and then collectively decide on the next Druid
Life After Death- A topic that has had much thought over the millennia. To put it simply, those who honored all 4 of the dictations aforementioned would become a plant in the garden of the now spiritual entity of Oakengrove. This metaphysical garden is presumed to be a heaven of sorts with a caretaker "tree of life" concept on the spiritual level in which plants are often removed and added every time someone died and someone else was born. Life as a "plant" on Oakengrove's garden is a life free of any physical need or want, a life of blissful mindlessness.
Holy Site- According to Castias Hranji, the Druid from 2100 to Present day, A magically tuned forest within the political borders of Exbrenia is believed to be the physical incarnation of the paradise garden with the 4 grove tenders being fragmented remnants of the original deity
Faules Tal (ᚠᚨᛚᛖᛊ ᛏᚨᛚ)(Rotten Vale):
Those who don't follow the ways of the grove are often believed to be reincarnated as the lowliest insects and parasites. Life in this "Rotten Vale" is considered to be one of agonizing starvation, destitution, and rejection. Creatures of this realm are subjected to constant insatiable hunger. They're forced to devour dirt, rock, and feces as if it was a freshly fallen leaf. It is unknown if any can be redeemed from the realm, but legends of old have told stories of some escaping back into the real world in the form of plagues.
Marriage- Considered most sacred, marriage is an indissolvable union between a man and a woman. A marriage ceremony involves wrapping the interlinked hands with ivy (non-rash inducing) and ashes smeared on their foreheads. It is common for the marriage to be consummated the very same night. It is a rare occurrence for gay and lesbian couples to be mated in the grove.
Weekly Cermonies- Similar to other religions globally, weekly ceremonies are done to keep the presence of the faith in the mind of the people. These ceremonies often involved the ingestion of flat greens, otherwise known as spinach or lettuce. It is believed that by eating the leaves of plants, that one revitalizes their spiritual essence and reconnects them to Oakengrove. It is believed that in the early days of the faith, hallucinogenics were taken instead such as hemp or shrooms.
Followers of Florism are known as Florists
After hearing the Scouts that were sent were killed, an Emergency Session of Congress was held, and in a surprising move, the Kiamaian Government declared War on the (unoccupied) Kowenian Islands, and the Soldiers who were originally going to land in Cervenia, are now redirected towards the (unoccupied) Kowenian Islands, and the landings begin. The Air Force has ruled out the usage of bombing campaigns and missiles, as that would devastate the islands more. Evacasia is invited to tag along and split the (unoccupied) islands,

Fospspfke Terismomalto: “Yare yare”
Fospspfke Terismomalto helped the vigilante patrollers catch the petty pickpocket and have him imprisoned and punished accordingly, for petty crimes the pickpocket gets his a$$ beat by Fospspfke Terismomalto in which his jaw gets kicked and his right arm broken.
Seeing the Liaoxians fall back on the Eastern front brings with it a soaring morale boost, but rather than follow though on pushing for further gains, First General Saleem Kavorah* has taken direct control of the entire front line and refuses a large scale advance until more gains can be made in the air and at sea. The Liaoxian mass assaults in these areas - while using lower end technology - have stalled plans in the east for their sheer numbers in comparison to current available forces, setting operations back by diverting assets to combat these new threats rather than continue their original objectives.
More efforts are to be focused by the army on the western front in the highlands while the air force and navy attempt to consolidate the east. This will come in the for of an additional infantry division being brought to bare in the Khalladi mountains including more transports for ease of movement and artillery to put the vastly outnumbered etrians into a position to pressure the invaders back
*Saleem's status as heir apparent is being removed as a lore change to reinstall Abdul as head of state and Natalia as his heir since the last dynasty was so heavily dependent on Archron's involvement. She will take the throne again in the near future, probably while marrying Saleem as I originally intended
The fishermen scramble to unmatched the hooks from their smaller vessel in vain while the engine begins to slow, low on fuel from such a long voyage and unprepared for the chase. All others head back to friendly shores as the trapped men raise their only rifle in defense, popping off rounds haphazardly in the gunman's intoxicated state. Soon enough he runs out of ammunition and so the captain radios an Etrian emergency maritime channel spinning a false story of being attacked on routine routes as quickly as he can manage before being captured by the galley.
The coordinates are given to Etrian Southern Naval Command in Hassan's Golden Harbor and a single destroyer is dispatched from the second fleet to investigate the distress call
A meeting between Etrian Foreign Minister Stephan Neffari and Akshoss Representative Rheahasza has seen the combinining of the Silver Sphere and the Akshoss Federation into a dual parliamentary system so as to provide the social, economic and military advantages of a single pact while allowing the national sovereignty of those not under federation rule. A single parliament will oversee cross-bloc matters and the closening of ties between the involved nations

the representative Dzokhar Aldhaq came to the podium
"the nation of ruskoye uls accepts the security council as a political and economic aliance, but we are not disposed to make it become a military alliance, we are, like Raspotochje, undecided. About the situation in Ruskoye Uls we arrived at the brink of a civil war, so the government, the highest representatives of the people and the rebel leaders will sign a treaty for the new democratic plan for the national reconstruction, the nation will change its name to a name chosen by the people, the first proposal was the name avaristani (composed by the names of the main ethnic peoples in the nation: Abkhaz/Voytan/Adyghe/Ruskoulsian/ "stani" is a local variant of the persian "stan", which means "land of"), we'll also change flag, anthem and capital"
The Lirana Government issues a condemnation of the Kiamaian invasion, described as ‘an action based not on need but on a distorted action. A further press conference on the condemnation, held by Minister of Foreign Affairs Anna Liao, further illuminated the decision for Condemnation.
‘While the Kiamaian invasion may seem necessary in light of the death of the scouts, not only was there no prior warning to the Kowenian civilian population, in disarray already, with their actions self defence rather than an assault. In addition, Kiamai rashly elected to send military forces without prior arrangement, making the action entirely reasonable, and even worse invited other nations in with no reasoning, an action which is even less reasonable than Kiamais flimsy logic. As such, the Lirana government has recently decided to place an embargo on the Kiamaian government and affiliated holdings, and urges Rumanian States, Concordaia and Vacoul to depart the MSET.’
With the condemnation of Kiamai now public, the Lirana military is being prepared for a possible military reprisal. The two Carrier Battle Groups in the Letanrican Sea are put on full alert, with AWACS aircraft placed up in the air on a rotation. The pilots are placed on rotation, half sleeping at day and half at night.
At home, the 7th, 9th and 18th Reserve Corps have been activated, and sent to shore up fortifications in the south of the country, particularly around the Lianzhou and Leidzhu peninsulas, on which large portions of the population are located.
With portions of the reserve being activated, the Lirana 3rd, 1st, 16th and 11th infantry corps, along with the 11th and 12th Armoured Corps, have been sent to the South coast, fortifying positions from Qinzhao in the north to the Lirana-Tandan border in the south. This position secures them in the range of major air force bases, missile defence systems and other defences.
The navy has been also put to sea, with forces from Liepaja, Qinzhao and Arkangel naval bases placed along the coast.

With the meeting between Etrian Foreign Minister Stephan Neffari and Akschoss Federation Representative Magdelena Rheahasza having ended in success, steps have been set in motion to bring the Akschoss Federation and the Silver Sphere into conjunction and combination, under a Parliamentary Confederation of the two individual blocs.
Dubbed the "Kalranian Stability Initiative", or KSI, the new merger of alliances is to be overseen by a High Parliament, made of representatives from the individual bloc parliaments. Though the High Parliament would be considered a Head-of-Governance, the Bloc Parliaments would altogether hold more governing responsibility than the High Parliament.
The formation of the KSI is set to be a staggered process to take place over the coming 5 years, with steps to transition both blocs into compliance with the proposed system, with further steps to fully transition all members into the new system.
Already, across the Solingarchi Confederation, support is high for the new KSI, with vexillologists already drafting flag designs from all across the Confederate Republics. The new system has seemingly hit especially well with the youth of the Confederation, with a large majority of youth having supported relations between the Akschoss Federation and Silver Sphere, as well as generally increasing relations across Kalrania.
Receiving the Basar Diplomatic Invitation, the Confederate Government has agreed to send a Diplomat to establish relations with the Basar State. The diplomat in question, Representative Elina Weyermann is a representative of both the Republic of Rubati, as well as the Solingarchi Confederation. She is set to arrive in Basaran in two days, via airplane.
RP: Seven Inches From the Midday Sun
There is little to be questioned regarding the events that occurred in the meeting between the leaderships of the Atomic Schism and Evve Terre. Broadcasted live, the whole world watched the Schismian delegates wrestle violently as Solar King Satyrn steadily realized the truth of the Solist faith. In the chaos, Satyrn broke Emperor Śeręn's nose, pulled a knife on an Evven celebrity, and threatened to kill the Governor of the Western Territories. It was only after Satyrn was forcefully restrained that he finally accepted the reality of the situation, breaking down into tears.
The meeting was cut short and the Schismian delegates returned to the Atomic Schism, embarrassed and disappointed with Satyrn's jeopardizing behavior. And whilst Satyrn learned about Evvven Solism, the citizens of the Kingdom of Sol learned the truth on their own through Evven internet pages and forums. Following his return to his palace in Vernacularberg, King Satyrn was witness to hundreds of Solists outside his gate, begging for answers. Answers, the Solar King did not have.
RP: Community News! Solist Churches Closed, Debate Centers Full!
Following the revelation that, 1. The Solist Prophet Satyrn DeVallier may be alive and, 2. Schismian Solism could be in fact be a gross bastardization of the original Solist faith, Churches in the Kingdom of Sol have temporarily shut down while King Satyrn discusses religious matters with the faith's leading priests. The Kingdom of Sol has in turn, also invited priests from Evve Terre to attend at their convenience.
Meanwhile, debate centers in the Kingdom have reported higher volumes of traffic following the revelation, many of them reaching maximum capacity. Many of the center's organizers have encouraged citizens to debate in their own houses in order to save space. Their statements however have only created more debates regarding the purpose of the debate centers in the first place.
RP: Mixed Reaction
While the Federalist government has praised the move, with Premier Senator Lasky calling the alliance merger as a "much needed symbol of unity, peace, and international cooperation", the general public's opinion on the action is generally split. Many within the hardliner sphere of thought view the creation of the KSI, in particular its governing body, as an affront of the "sovereignty of the revolutionary territory" and decry Lasky's attitude as further capitalist erosion. Supporters of the merger view the merger as the beginnings of a period of gradual reform for Concordaia as it finally leaves its diplomatic isolation and enters the foreign world once more. They also view the initiative as a way to facilitate international unity and achieve democratic socialism on a means of international level. The GLC has voted to remain within the KSI after Unionist-led motion to review a proposal to leave the KSI following these events failed by a small majority.

The Athejians would back skittishly away from the sauropods but would eventually get accustomed to the lumbering beasts, they had the same sort of gentleness underneath their massive power as elephants. Soon they regarded them with awe, how the Dze managed to tame them remained a great mystery. The Athejian horses however were having great difficulty getting used to them, recoiling at every massive footfall which shook the earth.
Marina: "You think they'll let us buy some of these creatures to bring back? Since the Seraphim doesn't allow anyone to cut down the ancient forests the trees have grown far too large, sending in foresters to trim them is too costly and time consuming. Their droppings would fertilize the forest floor as well," the scribe said idly as she rode forward on her horse.
Catarina: "Just try and run that proposal through the logistics corps, they would rather throw you overboard than even consider trying to put one of those on our transport vessels."
Luna would stay silent as they filed alongside Revan and the others, going through her memories trying to identify the writhing disgusting feeling she felt everytime she tried to harness the mana in this country. Unfortunately all the signs seemed to point to a single conclusion, she shook her head and lowered her visor to hide her darkening expression.

To say that the recent meeting in San Solaris, held between Western Territorial governor Jean Vernier and Schismian leaders, was eventful, would be an understatement that overlooks entire histories. This meeting, among other things (like spawning bountiful humor on Evven media), has made two great revalations to the Schismian Solist faith.
-Satyrn DeVallier is reincarnate, and
-The Schismians grossly misinterpreted the great flood Satyrn DeVallier brought to their desert in the mid 1500s as an excuse to die by drowning without ever touching a ship; something that classical Solists would view as deeply heretical.
Taking the latter into mind, Satyrn took to television to make an announcement aimed mostly at the Schismian Solists:
"...The great flood brought upon your people holds great significance; it was almost a 'baptism by sea.' However... Sol would have it that this ought to be interpreted as your peoples' introduction to a destructive force of nature that you harness and conquer in his name..."
Dancing around the absolute mess that was the Evven-Schismian meeting, DeVallier kept his composure, explaining to the Schismian people that Sol willed them to see to it that the sea was traversed in his name. He would meet the Schismian Solist Church's request for Evven Solist priests for faith counsel, sending exactly seven-hundred and fourty-six of the faith's finest.
Though the two nations may have gotten off on the wrong foot initially, the Evven people hope that this will be the start of something wonderful.
RP: Uh yes
Following the meeting, King Galiva supports Regent King Wallace and too states that Rekken's Archpope should keep the status quo and reject Sievism. The Head of Shinism supports the statement as well and says that Rekken is "...diverting away from the goals of Shinism by allowing Sieivi to infiltrate the religion..."
Nonadia also requests to build 2 military bases in the nation, with one being near Deija, and the other being up north. They will each hold around 100 soldiers and a runway to supply Nonadian planes. In return, Nonadia allows Icewindia to build 2 military bases anywhere they want so long the land it is in is not in the land of a village, town, or city.
