RP: Beginning construction of the border
Avidina would soon begin its construction of widespread infrastructure across the lands. However, with the Lohani now moving into Avian lands, Queen Arcwind has ordered for the Wolfinite-Icewindian Dominion border to begin fortifications has a large spread separation. Queen Arcwind has also delivered a statement to both Basaran and Akulda that Travel from the Dominion to Avidina is now further banned from any travel at all. Queen Arcwind has also demanded that Basaran become more further active within Avidina and begin boosting its infrastructure.
Gathering on the mountain
With the Icestorm forming, The Lohani had no idea what was going on. Past the statue, Arkomi and Ixion would have no further instructions. Ixion would have no other choice but to surround himself with fire, keeping him warm from cold.
[Ixion] “Gah! What is this?! At this point my flames will just die out!”
[Arkomi] “Just deal with it for a bit longer! I have no idea what... Whats even going on...”
The two would be rather confused, but await for further instructions
- RP: The Goose That Didn't Cry Wolf.
The Untamed Northern Territories
A long time ago.
There lived a family in a farm, in the middle of the forest the majority that lived in these areas were humans but they were no threat to the families that lived here.
In this farm there were cows, pigs, sheep, crops, and even geese. One such goose was a mother of 6 eggs that were about to hatch.
A feline girl had entered the nesting grounds of the mother goose and witnessed the hatching of 6 of these chicks, and named them right on the spot.
There was George, Tom Tom, Huckleberry, Goosey, Toots, and Betty Boop.
She brought bread for only Sneaky, the mother goose. So she went back to bring 6 more loafs of bread.
Time went on and the geese aged until the goose were 4 years old. The feline girl had reached the age of 12.
Things were running usual though reports from recent scouts of other settlements in the Northern Territories suggest of several field scientists from the League have been sighted around the area. In which people of the land were warned to carry a firearm or a weapon in the case of confrontation.
Night came and the farmers went to sleep, all the other animals of the farm also slept. Then several men from the forest approached the barn and opened the gates of the barn, they sneaked inside on their tip toes.
Woman 1: "I take the Goose, you guys take the baby pig, understand?"
Man 1: "Understood ma'am," one of them said as they tiptoe to their targets. The woman got out her bag and grabbed one of the goose by the neck and stuffed them in the bag. The goose woke up and struggled, it let out a faint honk. When stuffed into the bag, the woman turned around and pointed to the men she got the goose.
All of a sudden she felt something snap at her left leg.
Woman 1: "OUC--MMMPH!" She muffled herself as she looked down to see one of the geese biting her leg. Her shout attracted the whole darn barn. The 4 other geese woke up and started to honk creating more noise, soon enough, all the animals will wake up and the farmers will also be awaken to the noise coming from the barn.
Woman 1: "Ditch the piglets! We are getting out of here!" She shouted as she made her way out with the one goose as well as her team, as all of the scientists exited out of the barn, the goose tried to swarm her but eventually as she got to the gate, she was able to funnel them and kick off the one goose that latched itself around her leg.
Woman 1: "Off you savage beast!" She said as she threw it off her leg and away back in the barn. She then closed the gate and the scientists ran off.
The farmers woke up to all the commotion, the father brought a shotgun and the mother brought a lantern as the little girl followed behind them.
Feline Father: "Alright what is all of this commotion about?" He says as he looked around. Though nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Until the little feline girl spotted what was wrong.
Feline Girl: "Wait, where is Goosey!?"
- Three Months Ago
In an Unknown Site in the League
Male Scientist: "Are you sure this is gonna work ma'am?"
Female Scientist: "Yes, put the cage in the middle of the area." She says as he takes out the cage with the angry goose honking and trying to bite the bars of the cage."
Male scientist: "Also shouldn't we have more protection? I'm a bit unsure why the directors of the Department of Tech and Magic have given us a perimeter of steel walls and only two guards armed with Service Rifles." He says as he placed the cage in the middle of the site.
Female scientist: "We will be fine, now I need you to put this armor on him. I will test our new prototype rifles to see if they can defeat dark magic, we will also be seeing how it is triggered, naive chicks and piglets proved of no activation of dark magic. So now we shall see an angry one."
Male scientist: "uh, okay. . ." He says, still unsure about this all.
Female scientist: "Now put this necklace around the goose, it contains a rune of darkness." She says as she gave it to him, he gulped as he approached the cage of the goose.
As he was about to open it he took a deep breath and opened the cage quickly, he grabbed the gooses neck and strapped the necklace onto him, securing the necklace firmly onto his neck.
Male scientist: "Phew, I did i---" Suddenly a burst of darkness sent the scientist flying onto one of the guards and knocking them out cold. She looked in shock as the Goose seemed unharmed by it and was staring at her. She then looked to the guard who was standing there trying to get a grasp on what he just saw.
Female Scientist: "W-WELL DON'T JUST STAND THERE!" She shouted as the guard took his rifle and pointed at the goose, suddenly the goose screeched which made the scientist and the guard jump in terror and the guard to drop his gun. As he tried to pick it up the goose seemed to run up to the guard and knock him down. The goose then began to poke several holes into the guard as he screamed in agony.
The female scientist tried to open the gate and flee but as soon as the goose was done with its prey, it changed its target to the female scientist and ran to her, it used her whole body to knock down the gate and break it. Soon enough the gates couldn't hold the momentum of the two much longer and the gate broke as well as the female scientist knocked out dead.
The goose then fled into the wild. Never to be seen again. Or will it?
- Present Day
In The Northern Frontier
11 Oct 2157
The Goose was drinking water from a nearby river as it had traveled alone in search of its former residents, it honked and sometimes it got angry at trees and destroyed them. People have complained of the noise and the destroyed trees and when they found the goose a farmer took him home.
As he entered the house he had his back to the family.
Feline Father: "Hey, guess who I found?" He said as the mother and the girl tried to look around his shoulder inquisitively. He then turned around and the Goose honked.
Feline Girl: "Goosey!" She said cheerfully as she walked towards the Goose and gave it a big hug. The goose nuzzles around her neck.
Feline Father: "Woah there Cherish, you gotta clean up Goosey otherwise she gonna get you dirty as well,"
Cherish Hays: "Alrighty dad!"

21 May 2157
As Scarlet went down to check on the freezer to see how much food they have left to spare, it seems as though they had enough for breakfast, she decided to take loaf of bread and a bottle of ale. She then head up to her office to see if the scroll's crimson ink had dried off.
She then wrapped it around with a ribbon and head out onto the upper deck. As she made her way to the edge of a ship, she then spoke in old tongue.
Scarlet: "Ealiuqa murarbenet tneracov," she says, a bird suddenly appeared with a crimson look and dark aura. She then gives the scroll to the menacing bird, "Take the scroll back to Nightingale, the Imperium High Command," she says, the bird then leaves her shoulder and travels far into the distance as she observed it fly away.
Once out of sight she then takes a trip down to the lower decks, as she traveled down below she heard the faint noise of music and chattering, she followed this noise to the canteen. People were singing and playing music; drinking ale and rum and having fruits and bread. As the captain came in the room slowly fell into silence. As if waiting for the captain to say something.
Scarlet sighed and waved.
Scarlet: "Let the party continue lads," she says as she walks away from the canteen, the music once again started and the captain walked back up to the upper deck observing the ocean. As the rain continued to pour.

This is to hopefully reduce the carbon footprint to nothing within the next few years, by the early 2060s at the latest. The economy will most likely take a small hit but will most likely bounce back relatively quickly afterwards. Wolfy has made it clear, fully renewable, now.

RP: Operation Brightburn Ends
After roughly a year and a half of constant skirmishing and offensives at the northern border of Demira, over a million Solist soldiers lay dead and almost 25% of the vehicles involved have been destroyed. With little reason to continue the offensive, orders have been given across the front to dig in and fortify positions, preparing a defensive line. Artillery and airstrikes will continue as normal, with a particular focus on bombarding Floredan with long-range howitzers. Troops are now being largely drawn from the reserves, placing soldiers with limited experience and at times mediocre gear along the front lines. As the economy churns to keep up with demand for equipment, a worrying reduction of monetary velocity has been noticed in the economy, as people are apparently hoarding what money they have in anticipation of harder times. Stocks fell by 4% across the board when trading opened today on the Atralandian Central Stock Market, but trading was halted after only a few hours due to "technical issues", which some who the state has claimed are conspiracy theorists have taken as evidence that a potential recession is inbound. As food continues to be diverted to the war effort, people are more than ever being encouraged to grow vegetables and raise chickens at home, with a somewhat worrying report of bird flu appearing in an apartment complex in Tyvin, a large city in the center of Atraland. Local authorities say that improper hygiene when handling chickens was to blame, and have dismissed it as a nonthreat for now.
RP: Tempestas Here
Upon the horizon a rolling wave of black clouds seemly form at the islands edge as the airships enter the beaches shoreline below. Heavy rains blocked the view from the bridges windows and howling winds played with the vessels flight.

Caught within the gust of a downstream the nose of the White Lacy barrels down at a great speed crashing into the ground below compressing itself from the impact as flames bellow from its mass. The Little Carrot fairs better having launched its harpoon anchors below reeling itself closer to the ground before being slammed down itself its control tower cutting down into soil leaving a scar breaking off parts of itself and the cargo crane as it drags forward from the crash. Glory of the Snow seeks to make an emergency landing dropping its own weighted anchors reeling itself down before crashing onto its side.

Emone arm still latched onto the wheel would seemly be broken with the unnatural angle it was now in other members ship would be in similar messes with how sudden the storm appear and crashed them worse yet water would begin the leak from cracks within the glass and seemly walls. One more thing Aster thought getting wet would make any day worse but this was already a disaster. She would flutter up to the controls of the ships speakers system and given an order along with opening a radio channel to any of the nearby ships that should be tuned into it.
Aster: "All members of Glory head to main cargo room if able swept rooms as you go by and help the injured anyone listing outside follow cords to beacon 54A4U search teams will be sent out to help those unable message will be set to repeat."
Aster to flutter over to Emone and dislodge her painfully lowing her to the wall which was now the floor along with a few of the more able crew to carry her to the cargo room for medical treatment. Aster now would have parts of her 400 sprite crew well enough to form hazmat squad crews to mark the area and help those of the other airships if any others would fair better in their own prioritised landings.
16th December, 2157
In the year and a half since the Valean Ceasefire was declared, much had changed across the East.
The Valean Armed Forces had rapidly secured the VOT's Border, to then dissolve the VOT into 4 new Valean Satellite Republics. The Commonwealth of Predonia, Federal Republic of Proysau, and the Ardhalis and Athemery Metropolitan Republics were created out of the ruins of Rubati and Skorravik. They were created with Valean Satelite Republics, with Valean Advisors sent to guide the nations. Valean Soldiers kept the peace in the form of Martial Law for 4 months, until the nations could begin to operate on their own. In the months since, the 4 Republics began to rebuild from the ruins they had been left in. Infrastructure was rebuilt, homes slowly built and the displaced moved back into homes and houses across the Republics. Soon, the new Valean Republics began to prosper, in a sense. Commerce and trade began once more, construction beginning to be undertaken without the infrastructure of Vale required to do so.
Of the 4 Republics, the Ardhalis Metropolitan Republic struggled the most. Most of Ardhalis's Industrial Infrastructure had been destroyed in the dirty bombings of the October Tragedy, with much more of it's infrastructure unusable or contaminated by radioactive debris. It took months of work to clear the debris and rebuild in Ardhalis, and still was struggling to stand on it's own even a year after the Ceasefire. Of the Valean Republics, Ardhalis was the most dependent on Vale. As such, it had the most loyalty to Vale, despite the damages caused by Vale in the War.
In the months following the Ceasefire, the border between the Confederation and the Commonwealth's territories had disarmed significantly. Though a border guard still remained along the border, it was significantly less than it had been during the War. Border Forces had turned lax in their procedures; many of them were young adults in their late teens and early twenties, who wanted to go back home to their families and significant others. Others had joined the Valean Armed Forces out of necessity, their families and themselves not able to sustain their lives any other way. Some were students, who couldn't pay for school any other way. Others were people who couldn't get a job, or were laid off of their jobs, and had nowhere else to turn to. Of the border guard, many had grown disloyal to Vale following the War's end, some even yearning to cross the border in hopes of finding a new life in the Confederation. A very slight few retained their loyalty to Vale, be it out of desperation or pure belief.
Furthermore, the Valean Armed Forces had been split apart among the various Valean Republics, with only part of the original force still remaining to Vale. Vale had grown weaker, as a result of the post-war environment. Military Recruitment was at a low point, with not many if any enlisting into the Valean Armed Forces.
In contrast to Vale, however, the Confederation's Joint Armed Forces had never stepped down after the Ceasefire was declared. The opposite had happened, in fact, with the Confederation's Joint Armed Forces entering mass mobilization and moving to rally points. Military Enlistment was also at a high across several of the Confederate Republics, especially in Caerus, Akara, Audoti, and Asheakhan. Military Forces had been preparing for a large conflict, and those available were being moved to rally points closer and closer to the Confederate-Commonwealth Border Region.
Joint Military Planning and Discussions had also been undertaken, with the Nonadian and Etrian Armed Forces having been in close discussion with Confederate Joint Command since just before the Ceasefire. Plans had been arranged and set, waiting for the order to be given and the operations to be executed.
Many who had newly enlisted in the Confederation's various armed forces had been among the displaced from the Valean Conquest. People whose homes and cities had been destroyed, their family members and close ones killed as a result of collateral damage or in combat against the Valean Armed Forces. Others had seen the destruction wrought by Vale's Conquest and wanted to repay it, who wanted to enlist to oppose the Valean Conquest. Closer to the Northern Border, people had enlisted to support their Concordaian allies. People who had been immigrants from Concordaia, or were from immigrant families who had fled from Concordaia's Civil War, enlisted to oppose the rogue High King. They had enlisted to pay retribution to the King who had torn their nation asunder, whose soldiers had killed many and destroyed so much.
It was on the 19th of December, 2157, that the Confederate Joint Command gave the order to begin the operation, and that the Confederation's constituent Republics unanimously declared war on the Valean Commonwealth and it's Satellite Republics, breaking the year-and-a-half long Ceasefire. Immediately, Confederate Forces who were stationed near to the Border Zone began their move into the Commonwealth's Territories. Mechanized Infantry units rolled through the roads along the border with little resistance, fighting only against those who were still loyal to Vale. Many Valean Soldiers along the border surrendered peacefully as soon as Confederate Soldiers reached their positions, laying down their weapons without conflict and of their own will. They didn't want to be there, and they didn't want to fight against the soldiers who would bring their homes peace.
Once the border zone had been taken, Confederate Soldiers advanced with ease, the region's soldiers nowhere near ready to respond to the invasion. Conflict was sparse and rare as the Confederation rolled through the countryside; in stark contrast, many rejoiced as Confederate Soldiers advanced through the towns and farmlands of the region. Some families and homesteads even waved Confederate Flags as the soldiers went past, even throwing flowers and gifts to the advancing soldiers.
Conflict erupted as Confederate Soldiers breached the border into Athemery. Athemerian Soldiers, many loyal to the Commonwealth, entered combat with Confederate Soldiers near 4pm Kalranian Standard Time on the 19th. Athemerian Fighter-Bombers engaged Confederate Convoys on roads leading into Athemery, dropping bombs onto Confederate Soldiers as they entered into combat positions. Confederate Casualties were taken as Athemerian Aircraft held the Air Advantage, but began to turn the tide as the Confederation's own Air Superiority Aircraft and Anti-Aircraft Weapons entered the scene. Dogfights between Confederate and Athemerian Aircraft took place over Athemery, as Confederate Forces engaged with Athemerian Guardsmen. As hours passed, Confederate Forces pushed further into Athemery until they reached the Athemerian Suburbs. Unevacuated Residential Areas, Confederate Forces had difficulty engaging Athemerian Guardmen in the residential zones, and so combat quickly turned into a close stalemate, with Confederate Forces relying on precise artillery strikes and air support to take out Athemerian Armor, so that the Confederate Infantry could advance.
Combat in the Athemerian Suburbs waged for 2 days before Confederate Forces finally broke the stalemate, pushing forward deep into Athemery with the support of artillery and air support. At noon on the 21st of December, the Athemerian Metropolitan Republic officially surrendered to Confederate Forces, with Athemerian Soldiers across the Republic surrendering their weapons to Confederate Soldiers.
By the 23rd of December, Confederate Forces had already advanced through Athemery and halfway into Prosyau, with Confederate Forces in Predonia making similar success as they approached Ilnoria. Conflict in Prosyau and Predonia had taken place in smaller cities, though had been generally easy compared to in Athemery. On the 24th of December, just past 5am Kalranian Standard Time, Confederate Forces entered combat along the western regions of Ilnoria. Furthermore, Confederate Naval Groups had arrived outside of Ilnoria, and were prepared to engage in combat with Ilnorian Defenses and to provide seaborne fire support to their Landborne brothers.
In the 5 days since the Confederation's Invasion into Commonwealth Territories, much success had been made. The Athemery Metropolitan Republic had surrendered to the Confederation, with headway in Prosyau and Predonia having been made as well. But in this time, Vale's Armed Forces had also been partially prepared, and a counterattack was en route to the Front Lines. However, despite this, the Commonwealth was unaware of their Eastern Neighbors. Unaware of the forces amassing in the Bordering Mountains, who could just as easily catch Vale off guard.

The Diplomatic Aircraft which had been dispatched to the Coast had encountered a large City deeper into the Coast. After finding the City, the Aircraft would send the information of the contact to the Dreamer, which in turn would give clearance to the Aircraft to make official contact with the City. Two additional aircraft would be prepared, though not sent, to the City - instead ordered to await further information from the Diplomatic Aircraft.
The Diplomatic Aircraft would approach the City, flying at a distance to be clearly visible to the City's inhabitants. It would circle the City, gaining as much visual information as it could, before attempting to land just outside of it.

RP: The Larkhall Congress
Delegates representing all aspects of the NRA's broad coalition of supporters met in Larkhall to determine the organization's path. It soon became clear to any observers the factionalism within the NRA was still prominent and very much defined. Socialists rallied under the banner of Kellum Greymoore, republicans underneath Kaiden Aldridge, monarchists underneath both Inanna von Crossfeld and Gregory Brent, and neutrals under Edward Rayne. Such a broad coalition made debate fierce and solutions critically assessed. Despite worries of an impasse, the Congress laid out the general organization and doctrine for the NRA. Local commands would be centralized and leadership consolidated in an upper council of the important leaders of the revolution, namely the leaders of the aforementioned factions. The NRA's mission was defined as one not only depose High King Oliver, but also to ensure such a leader never again is allowed to come to power or exercise power in a similar extent. Civilian lives were officially regarded as sacrosanct and collateral damage discouraged, in order to be a humane and restoring force as opposed to a new regime. Details still remained largely vague on what would happen if the NRA achieved victory, however, the Congress promised for a similar meeting to be held after the war to determine the state of affairs and future. For the foreseeable future, the NRA is even more united than before and is expected to field better in battle due to their organizational support.
RP: A Friend In Need
Amid the secret communiqués between the three nations of Northwestern Voytana, the National Revolutionary Army was forced into a strained situation. When the Confederation asked for aid in their offensive against Vale and their new puppet states, the NRA felt a need to support the comrades that had supported them in previous times. What stood in the way was the mounting strength of the government military. As a result, the NRA was originally was to avoid supporting their allies in the Valean invasion due to need for military assets. However, due to the insistence of General Inanna, the NRA has supplied a task force amounting to about one standard division of professional soldiers to support Northern New Solingarch. The move was seen as controversial across all of the NRA due to the necessity of wartime assets, which the General has justified as an investment for future Solingarchi support.
RP: Terror Across Cities
Sometime after the Larkhall Congress, a third wave of bombings from Blayredeshian CIS agents would commence. In particular, they would focus on the population centers of Hearth, Aldan, and Marewood, the latter being the de facto capital of the NRA. Unlike the previous bombings, these were of high yield and thus caused wide-scale damage that ranged from ruins to causalities. Marewood was spared of its most critical infrastructure being destroyed due to a high military presence, with security being tighetened following the attacks. The other cities were not so lucky. Morale has dipped within the NRA's holdings, especially within Aldan, where the chaos of the bombing inadvertently caused a moderately sized battle in the nearby frontlines. Security forces are stretched thin to actively hunt down the CIS bombers, though there is a widescale effort to do so, only hampered by resources.
RP: The King Returns With Support
High King Oliver has finally from his diplomatic visit to the nation of Redpeppers, achieving the support of the Unified Realms' support in the Civil War. They would be directed to arrive on the west coast at the remaining major port in the government's hands, the city of Antissis. Sights of Redpeppersian soldiers entering the city would quickly make its way to the Concordaian social media despite the information quarantine, with general reactions being mixed and negative. A base theme was a general apprehension about another group of foreigners, especially ones from so far away. Connections between the western government command and the Redpeppersians were established, with the Redpeppersians being asked to reinforce the southern line in wait for a front-wide offensive that would take place within the coming months.
RP: Rumblings In The Belly Of The Beast
From the onset of Operation Sunset up to the present day of the war, the Concordaian Crown Government had struggled to adapt to its new situation. Bureaucracy, low public support, and a strangled economy contributed to a slow response and a cluttered understanding of the situation. To make matters worse was the defection of the better part of the professional army to the new rebellion and the Etrian advance in the east. The chaos added with the other domestic unrest and historical stagnation had made it hard for it to act, but finally the government had finally began to pick up pace and shrug off its sluggishness that ailed. Now it found itself in a manner of energy and activity not seen in decades. This vigor allowed for the government to supplement battlefronts to prepare for a counteroffensive.
The new state of the government was primarily due to the combined efforts of High King Oliver Robin and Chief Castellan Rylan Arthrope, despite their strained working relationship. The two had set aside their differences in approach to revitalize the crown government, resulting in a tenuous alliance between the more centrist High King and the now radicalized, ultranationalist Chief Castellan. While this had worked for a time, the newly stable government has grown into a perfect sparring ground for the two national leaders. While Arthorpe had been the senior member of the partnership due to Oliver's inexperience, the High King's diplomatic success has gained him significant political weight to leverage against Arthrope. Both juggernauts have begun a silent battle behind closed doors over leadership of the nation.
RP: The Church Steps In
Its status as an official institution of Concordaia has forced the Cantalist Church to nominally support High King Oliver's reign, though in practice it has remained neutral throughout the war. Churches on both sides of the frontlines offered support to local communities, assisting the best they could in times of hardship and assisting with reconstruction efforts when need be. Yet pressure from both the NRA and the Crown continued be applied for the Church to cast its weight behind the side, leading to an official condemnation of the Civil War by the Church's central leaders. They have reformed the Order of the Gilded Templar, an order of holy warriors whose historic objective was to guard the holy sites ands relics of the Church. Its modern incarnation, instead, is a mixture of a welfare system and a militia service meant to provide order and support to struggling communities burdened by war.
RP: No Federalization
The Republic has received votes against refeseralization. The reasoning of some voters are 'due to the fact that this is gonna make our democracy too complex, as if it weren't complex enough.' However, the Republic shall give 90% Autonomy to the Republics, and the Triple Monarchy. The Triple Monarchy shall also be reorganized to a unitary state called "Talnekoi."
The reinforcement of Saleem's armies in Concordaia continues and the pieces fall into place for the next offensive against Oliver's regime. Shortly after the arrival of assets from Redpeppers, an assault and battle section from the Etrian 4th fleet arrived to begin the blockade of reinforcement and resupply totaling 70 warships. Coastal bombardment has been delayed as a respect to Inanna, who is still viewed as the rightful heir by the federation's leadership and has declared minimal collateral damage - doubtlessly saving their sole remaining port from destruction and innumerable civilian lives. The intelligence and army special forces also return to friendly lines after months of gathering the information necessary to launch the first attack on the stagnant line.
In the early hours of morning before sunrise, the over 800 total artillery pieces and rocket batteries open their fury on preselected targets in a rain of steel and fire unseen this far in the war with the aim of crippling the enemy's command structure. The largest camps and logistical hubs are targeted first creating the nightmarish hail of fragmentation, incendiary and thermobaric charges to dismantle the ability to continue the battle of attrition that has been the death of so many on both sides. Next to be targeted after an hour of fire was the storage and stockpiles of supply.
It was only half way through the second hammering of guns did the order go out for the blitz to begin. Just as before orders made the taking of prisoners a priority but only if it did not interfere with the primary objectives, so loudspeakers from helicopters would be used alongside the armored thrust to call for the enemy to surrender, that their lives needn't end in a muddy trench as martyrs for a doomed cause. Those that do accept are to be treated humanely since Concordaia is still widely considered an ally if not a misguided one, soldiers are sure to be gentle but thorough with their northern brothers.
Armored and mechanized units take the lead to create a ride of armor in hopes of overwhelming the defenders not in numbers but with shock and awe while the self propelled guns of the army continue the bombardment with the advance leaving time for the more static assets time to keep up

Premade plans in conjunction with confederate leaders are put into effect shortly after their own offensive begins to allow time to draw the Vale's attention to the west. For months Etrian divisions have been massing in the mountainous border regions preparing to invade with as little notice as possible, spearheaded by the Khalladian armored divisions at the peak of the nation's military and overseen by Second General Ria Kosova since Saleem is occupied by the larger war to the north.
The attacking army is to be divided into two groups with separate goals and equipment. Army group south is to advance along the heavily defended coastal lowlands in and armored thrust to occupy as much of the enemy troops as possible to prevent reinforcement to their western front. Army group north will be made up of infantry and motorized units to clear the less heavily protected and populated mountain regions with a slower push and potential flanking position against forces on the coast once they are pinned down by Army group south.
The attack begins with the vanguard of armor moving quietly in the early morning rather than the usual massed artillery fire. These are merely children and tired men, not necessarily deserving of an unhonorable death and so surrender is encouraged once contact is made when they wake to the sounds and sight of an enemy they didn't know was there.

RP: Battle over the Helandriel: Backup
The planes would be outnumbered, with the Blayredeshians having 200 more planes. Another 400 N-79 bombers would be sent to outnumber the Blayredeshians, and the planes would implement a strategy of staying in groups to prevent being outnumbered, and they would focus on lone Blayredeshian planes to drive Blayredeshia's numbers down. Around 1/3 of the Third Imperial Air Force was being used for the Battle over the Helandriel, hoping that it would solidify Nonadian supremacy in the Helandriel. 40 Cruisers have been sent to the Helandriel, equipped with Anti-Air to support the N-79 bombers.
RP: The Blayredeshian Front: Retreat
"Surrender is a word made up by the Blayredeshians to explain their failures."
The Nonadian Troops, retreating to Floreden, would set up defensive positions within the city. 400 Artillery pieces are being shipped to Demira to support the city of Floreden. While it doesn't look likely they will win, the Third Imperial Armed Forces believes if they are going to get the city, they mine as well have as many causalities as possible. 200 N-79 bombers, split into 4 groups of 50, begin the slip by the Battle over the Helandriel, knowing they are distracted by the battle. They hope them being split into groups of 50 will allow them to pass by and support Floreden in the skies.
300,000 infantry is to arrive in the next 3 months, and following that another 300,000 will arrive, but most likely they will not arrive until after the Battle of Floreden. General Havason is put in charge of the 1st Infantry Division, the division being used to defend Floreden. He is hopeful that the battle can delay the Blayredeshians enough to allow more Nonadian troops to come in to counterattack the Blayredeshians, and that support from the skies will allow more causalities to force the Blayredeshians to call in reinforcements, which will further delay them.
RP: Election Night: Perspective of the Nonadian News Network
Reporter (In News Room): "Good evening all, today is a special day for the Third Empire of Nonadia. Today the voting results for our new Prime Minister shall begin, with the Traditional Party's incumbent Alaz Jakson going up against the Green Party's Halzun Jafas."
Travelling Reporter (Topago): "It certaintly is a special day for the nation. For decades now, Prime Minister Jakson has dominated the position. His approval rate when he took office was around 70%, but it has dropped to 52%. May accredit this due to the lack of action he has taken and how many think he acts as a puppet of the Monarchy rather than someone who actually represents the interest of the people."
Reporter (In News Room): "And how different do you believe this election will be compared to the last one?"
Travelling Reporter (Topago): "King Uzanad's reforms have changed the dynamic of the Parliament. Now, the Monarch no longer has foot hold on the parliament, and rather, the parliament is now actually meant to represent the Nonadia people rather than the interests of a monarch separated from society. During the last election, the now disbanded Third Imperial Party ruled the also disbanded Senate and essentially, even if an opposition leader won, they could do nothing against the Nonadian government."
Reporter (In News Room): "I have gotten word that the Nonadian News Network has officially called a winner, and that will be, Halzun Jafas, of the Green Party. With the Green Party not having a majority of seats in the Parliament, it is thought he may form a coalition with different parties to make sure he can get things done while in office. The Traditional Party continues to have a majority in Parliament, although that majority not being an absolute majority."
With Northern New Solingarch making advances into the Valean Commonwealth, over 200,000 Nonadian troops have been amassed and will land on Northern New Solingarch to help the offensive within the next half year. An aircraft carrier carrying 60 N-79 bombers has also been sent, along with 10 destroyers, 20 submarines, and 10 missile cruisers to bombard Vale. The Third Imperial Armed Forces has announced as well that its budget will be increasing to 90 billion, versus the previous 70 billion (this is in USD, not Nanoes), due to Nonadia now participating in two wars.
