RP: Offer Accepted
After the letter was finally intercepted and sent to FreeTheLeaf's clandestine headquarters, a letter was sent in return. These are its contents.
"We have received your message, and accept your offer. Two representatives, whose names and titled will only be revealed to you on their arrival, are to be sent. Much appreciation."
The Avidinan presence on the island seems to still not be noticed, or so it seems. Scouts see various groups of locals continuing on as if the Avidinans weren't there.
The armed militants don't seem to be interested in the Avidinan offer, with the militants shouting what appears to be commands which the Avidians don't understand at the marines. The situation grows more tense as more armed militants arrive, and the Avidinians even noticing in the distant treeline overlooking the beach head they were on the irregulars were setting up a belt fed machine gun that was aimed right at them.
Many of the Kowenian locals soon quickly gather at the zones which the Nonadian military has a presence in, in hopes of getting any of the new wave of supplies sent by the Nonadian government. Many of the local factions which competed against the Nonadian presence on the island, have since either completely disbanded or merged with other groups in efforts to stay afloat. Although groups remain, hostilities have calmed down over the time between the Nonadians and the few remaining local factions, which the camps have been switching from a more militarist approach of trying to take other parts of the islands to more self sustaining in promoting any members to focus on resource gathering.
Iasi, Rumania - The first meetings between Rumanian and Schwypian leadership since the Treaty of Cetea Alba have gone well, according to Rumanian Prime Minister Lascar Golescu, who was happy to announce that the two nations had agreed upon several deals; in the meetings, the two nations agreed to establish a free-trade and travel zone between the nations, as well as a non-aggression pact. Talk of a potential economic alliance occurred, though no such treaty was agreed upon, and such a topic is likely to be the center of future meetings and discussion. The Royal Families of both nations also met, graciously hosted by the Schwypian Royal Family. King Sasa announced that he was glad that the two nations had finally rebuilt their ties after several tumultuous years in the past, and he hopes to strengthen ties between the two nations in the near future. As discussed between the two families, should the Rumanian Princess and Schwypian heir marry, the Princess would live more often in Schwypia, it was agreed that Princess Margareta would live in Schwypia for sometime, to become accustomed to the nation and build relations with the family and people.
RP: Emergent Parties
Several parties have broken off their primary parties due to the rising political tensions between the Democrats and Technocrats. The Social-Technocrats, Liberal Union of Technocrats, Socialist Technocrats, Communist Meritocratic Movement, and the Specialist Libertarians have risen to oppose the current Democratic parties. Will this affect the political landscape of the Republic? Will there be a reformation of the Technate? Find out after the advertising.
Many Central Kowenians are happy by the move of the Rumanian States government to get re-establish the Bucuresti-Shinai Agency. The country's economy, which has been largely fluctuating from periods of stagnation to periods of mild growth following the recession that occurred nearly 23 years ago. A few economists have wrote to the agency, encouraging them to use their power and influence to pressure the Central Kowenian government to take steps with the Kowenian states to start construction of a unified power grid across the entire nation of Kowen (one of the grids central locations would be located in Central Kowen) which the Kowenian states agreed to, but haven't taken action on due to what was blamed on excessive regulation and quarrels between the governments on the details and specifications of the large project.
Critics however have also been vocal to the agency, and have demanded for them to take further action on the Kowenian side of the funds. Many of them citing statistics from an independent government corruption watchdog organization (that has operations throughout most of the Kowenian states) that found seven city council members (from various local city governments throughout CK) and even a province governor being convicted of charges of misappropriating public funds (four of the cases involved funds from the Kowenian side of the Bucuresti-Shinai Agency.) With the case regarding the governor, a 54 year old ex-construction company executive named Sonu Tae-Hyun, being charged with perjury; who lied to the court and investigators even found evidence that the governor attempted to cover up the act.
RP: The Nightingale Incident
As the Kowenian States have over the decades slowly increased in technological progress, so has the quality of life and the amount of disposable income to the average Kowenian household. With just a few decades ago, a radio was one of the most advanced forms of mass media and entertainment. Now, some households have begun to install a television within their homes.
While the amount of televisions in households is quite limited, so is the amount of channels available to televisions in Kowen. The government mainly have monopolies, some intentionally (such as in North Kowen) and others unintentionally due to the lack of starting capital and technical know how to establish private broadcasting centers.
Central Kowenian authorities then were suddenly left with many questions after hospitals throughout Central Kowen were filled with hundreds of cases of patients complaining of migraines, numbness, dizziness, and sensitivity to light within the timespan of less then 24 hours. There were even a few cases of seizures, decreased cognitive ability, and loss of consciousness. Medical experts were able to rule underlying medical illnesses, as many of the cases did not revolve around them (such as epilepsy.) Although when authorities began to question some of the patients, they had all reported watching television, specifically a Central Kowenian government channel which revolved around being an educational channel offering various documentaries and other similar subject matter. The channel was having a new episode released on the day of when most of the cases began to pop up, that regarding the common nightingale (a fairly uncommon bird in the Kowenian States.) Many patients agreed that during the broadcast of the episode, or following the end of the episode is when their symptoms began to appear. The public has began to pressure the government to find the meaning of the sudden rise of cases, which intensified after two Kowenian schoolchildren died experiencing symptoms similar to many of the cases.
The Central Kowenian government spent two months on the incident, but was unable to find a definitive cause and left the case unsolved. Some fringe members of the public have attempted to create an outcry regarding the incident, while a handful of citizens have begun to spread theories that the Central Kowenian government deliberately created the incident (as it all tied back to the episode of a government run broadcast station) and was attempting to cover up the true reason.
RP: Step 2
Fort Sakdrona, the current administrative center of the island, located on the southern island, is to receive massive funding to improve infrastructure and make the islands less primitive and more, civilized. A small highway will be constructed connecting the entire island, with small towns being constructed along it. Fort Sakdrona will have a port constructed to allow international trade, to give the islands more money to improve. Fort Sakdrona will construct many suburbs for Kowenians to move into, and many apartments will be created near downtown Sakdrona. Fishing will become a staple industry, with Nonadian fishing companies, some impacted by the new tax from Avidina, creating many jobs for Kowenians to take.
Many elementary, middle, and high schools will be constructed to teach Kowenians how to do many things. Nonadian Spanish will become a mandatory lesson, to improve communication between the Nonadian Government and local Kowenians. This entire project will take 15 years at the least, with an unconfirmed amount of Nanoes being spent on the project, at least a few 100 billion by small government leaks.
RP: 4th Annual Nonadian Prime Minister Election
Prime Minister Jafas has announced he will not be running for a fourth term, despite no term limits on the job. The Green Party has announced candidate Rejaz Bavielar, the Governor of the Province of Topago, who's policies have allowed the city to grow past alot of problems, such as a massive unemployment problem, which is on the verge of being non existent. He looks to solve Nonadia's population crisis through welfare and affordable housing. The Traditionalist Party has announced candidate Paya Ezona, the representative for the district which contains Greentown in the Nonadian Parliament. He looks to cut government spending to end a massive problem which has plagued Nonadia; Government overreach. Due to this, funding has been juggled around and the government frequently finds itself at dead ends.
The Nonadian voters would not only choose who represented them in the Higher Government, but which problems they focused on. Among richer and rural communities, Paya Ezona had a huge advantage, as they cared about the problems he was focusing on. Less rural and poorer communities, mainly cities, voted massively for Rejaz Bavielar, as the overpopulation crisis was becoming a huge problem in most cities. He won San Lata by a 92% margin, a massive victory for the biggest city in Nonadia. With Nonadia becoming increasingly less rural, it was becoming clear that the trend would give Rejaz Bavielar an advantage. Many predicted he would win.
And they were not long, on election night, he would win 58% of voters. Much less than Jafas, but good for a relatively new politician. Rejaz Bavielar would be promoted to the Traditionalist Party President, so he would still win, albeit not the highest spot he was hoping for. The Parliamentary Elections reflected the Parliament results, with the Green Party winning 102 seats, the first absolute majority in the history of Parliament and the highest they have gotten. The Traditionalist Party would win 65 seats, the People Of Freedom would win their lowest amount, 21 seats, the Socialist People's Party would win only 2 seats, Martial Nationalists would win 2, and the Libertarian Council would win 8.
King Uzanad would remind Catherine that Nonadia is now part of a military alliance, though would be open to her coming and discussing a merger, or if she is very persuasive, maybe she can get Nonadia in her proposed alliance.
RP (Secret): Operation Veles
Schwypian counterintelligence agencies made a massive breakthrough after the North Kowenian whistleblower had revealed thousands of North Kowenians were given fraudulent Nakatoro identification in an effort to sway Nakatoro elections nearly 12 years ago.
Not only did Schwypian counterintelligence operatives confirm that the North Kowenian government did attempt to sway Nakatoro elections, they also had discovered some of these Kowenians had used their Nakatoro IDs to apply for valid Schwypian ones. This led to Schwypian intelligence agencies in a panic, and had teamed up with law enforcement agencies to crackdown on those who used counterfeit Nakatoro IDs and were currently residing in Schwypia or had Schwypian identification.
The massive breakthrough came after Schwypian law enforcement conducted a raid at an apartment complex in the capital of Milare, they had come across a treasure trove of electronic documents, hard drives, and stashes of weapons and bundles of the currency Xollak. The law enforcement agency, immediately alarmed by what they had uncovered had flagged Schwypian intelligence agencies to get involved.
Upon seizing the various assets from the apartment, agents went to work analyzing everything they had taken. They soon discovered that this apartment complex was a safehouse of sorts in a grander conspiracy in what the intelligence agency believes to be a intelligence gathering operation happening within the heart of the Schwypian homeland codenamed "Operations Veles".
The operation appears to be more of a general intelligence gathering operation; with the Schwypians finding collections of information regarding high profile Schwypians both in the government and private economic sectors, security of numerous government buildings, great quantities of information of various private Schwypian citizens, and other things.
Three people were arrested in the initial raid, with one having committed suicide while in police custody. The other two are believed to be high risk of harming themselves.
RP: Border line gets blurrier between Kowen and Asukiro
While the diplomatic relations have been for the large part non-existent between the two nations, Asukiro has seen their share of chaos and destruction spilling over from the Kowenian states. There have been times in the past where local Asus living by the border were forced into taking shelter as armies of the Kowenian states clashed, and on numerous occasions spilling across the border. In the aftermath; Asus would find the burned out remnants of vehicles, abandoned supplies, and corpses littering the area. With one incident, Asus found corpses of Kowenian soldiers as far as 32 km into the lands of Asukiro.
While large scale wars have (for the large part), have become increasingly rarer in the Kowenian states. The shadows of the past are still haunting them, including the Asus. Militant groups from capitulated governments, radical extremist camps, and even a banned religious cult attempting to elude capture by crossing the border into Asukiro. While the Kowenian states have mainly kept on their side of the borders, with the exceptions of spillovers from military conflicts, the Kowenian states have begun increasingly encroaching in the Asu land to eliminate or capture these groups. Which has led the groups to go even further inland in Asukiro, which these groups had been isolated from local Asu communities are now having more encounters between them as the groups relocate further into the interior.
The Asukiro government now finds itself in a difficult situation, as these extremist groups had been mainly passive in the past have been increasingly more hostile as they approach local Asu communities, with even isolated incidents of violence that led to deaths occurring between the militants and Asus.
The Asus however also find nothing better on the Kowenian governments side, due to the lack of diplomatic ties between the states of Kowen and Asukiro many don't want to cooperate or even recognize any Asukiro government as they continue to pursue the extremist groups inland. Some of the Kowenian states even see the land of Asukiro as unoccupied, and view the Asus as "collections of uncivilized barbarians."
The entire Atralandian military have been issued orders to begin fully mobilizing, with troops being recalled from days off and organizing in units. Air forces have begun prepping aircraft across the nation and the naval forces have begun to accumulate into a fleet at Sol Vitorri.
RP: Congress Passes Neutrality Act
The rise of the Humanist Approach sect of Florism also brought with it a wave of isolationism. The sudden cancellation of the UBI program caused an uproar amongst much of the population who saw the extra income increase their quality of life, doubly so when the foreign fighter aircraft acquisition was leaked to the public. Nothing short of a hundred petitions containing hundreds of thousands of signatures each, mostly from the northern half of Basaran, were dumped onto the Speaker of the Congregation’s podium during a session of congress.
The tagline for these petitions, when it came known to the media was “Never another Pontricare” which cited the spectacular failure of the BNS to hold the bay against a sudden onslaught of Blayredeshian and Woleve ships. This massive defeat also caused famous Admiral, Alvin Valkrie, to retire after the “Peace With Honor” was signed.
Additionally to the resistance to intervention in Tengerina’s giants, the petitions also called for a withdrawal from the heavily resistant puppet state of Tearth. After a long week of debates and measures, the Tengarina Neutrality Act (TNA) was signed, prohibiting the nation from sending soldiers, equipment and performing other aspects in the area.
The withdrawal from Tearth was not a favored move by the military upper brass but they were not given a choice on the matter. The stockpiles of Basar equipment were emptied, with some of it being handed over to the current government to keep it from falling to internal resistance forces should another arise.
The Viking’s Influence Wanes…
Arko and Akulda returned home, prompting Arko to begin a large military spending to begin upgrading and adding new Technology. The goal was clear to the people as Arko told them the tale, they were preparing for unification.
RP: The Path of Unity
Queen-Regent Catherine marches up on stage so her people can see her. On the Balcony she gives a speech to the people with television and Network live stream and radio broadcasting her message. "Alone we stand against Blayredeshian Horde. Alone we prepare to March West on the Precipice of victory. But our Old Enemy returns.... the North Mobilizes and is preparing to plunge its dagger into our Imperial Lands. The Imperial Confederation stands alone...." She points to Basaran Flag "We can rely on no one! We shall defeat the Northern enemy as we have defeated Blayredeshian Horde. If we must win this next war alone. Then we shall do that too." She refers to north as Atraland however does not use the word directly.... as it can also be interpreted as KSI. This was a political move as Akulda's friendship with Sol Invictius has opened a path to possible peace with TNL. Somthing Queen-Regent has considered to take but like her husband she knows peace must be secured by deterrence. Weakness leads to War.
Queen-Regent Denounces King Asvard Jorgeson accusing him to selling out to TNL and to KSI. Denouncing Rose and other Outsiders. Immediately accounts are Frozen as Icewindia begins to cut trade and investments into the region. Icewindia is already aligning itself to shift trade to new Markets in south with increasing reliance on Nonadia markets. This helps a little but the Economy is hurting from this blow in the economy. However the Military buildup should fix this.
Marshall Hemlock has been brought back only because he is needed for strength. There can no longer be hesitance. Soon the Reformers see nightmare of Military Rule coming back. But they dont resist... everyone knows whats coming and only one Person can stop the Nightmare. Queen Akulda of Frostwindia has already taken stance of Civilian Rule and wishes to find a peaceful route. Her Mother Queen-Regent has already restored Hemlock's Role in Military and Nation and begins the path to War. But first the Path of Unity must be done.
RP: Day of Short Claws
After a mysterious fire in the Imperial Senate Queen-Regent/President Catherine centralizes her position and declares emergency powers as she begins to accuse and have over 210 Officials killed most of which are reformers who are not of Catherine's side. She then merges Presidency and Queen-Regency position into one. Akulda flee's Icewindia back to Frostwindia as she see's whats going on. Even though Akulda was not under threat she brought Redrov with her and other key figures.
With this indefinite Emergency Powers Remains. Hard fought for Democracy is trampled on as people look to Security over Freedom for the coming Conflict. Its noted recent sightings of Kah'rokta talking to Catherine is noted.
As the Basars began their process of withdrawal from Tearth, the turtle population began to celebrate. Huge crowds celebrated out in the streets of big cities as they knew they were finally independent and safe from the threat of terrorist groups and insurgencies. The XY and members of parliament gave speeches on live TV on how the nation of turtles shall strive now that it was fully independent. With almost 10 years of fighting, terrorism, more fighting, and insurgencies, the turtles could begin to live a life of normality.
RP: Preparing for the Worst
As the Sol Invictus attended his meeting in Archron Empire, the vast networks of spy satellites kicked into action, building a full photogrammetric map of Avidina. Key locations, including airbases and naval ports, as well as large military garrisons and government buildings, have been marked and their coordinates marked down, sent to the hundreds of missile sites armed with thousands of munitions left over from the Great Continental War, with each silo being issued a list of targets to fire upon the Sol Invictus’ command. Meanwhile, the Deepwater Fleet has set sail for the waters of Archron Empire, bringing with them the 78th Marine Landing Force and the Blue Berets, to prepare their temporary transfer to Archron Empire command. The entire Imperiurm Air Corps has likewise been temporarily transferred to the command of Archron Empire, though a small amount of fighters have been retained for the defense of Atralands airspace, as the various AA defenses across the nation come online to shore up the defenses. The remaining Knights of Sol forces have been sent northwards, alongside Task Force Alpha of the Imperium Army, while the remaining forces of the Imperium Army, Task Force Zeta, have been sent southwards to cover the borders.
With recent talks assuring a non aggression pact with Basaran, Atralandian companies have taken a keen interest in setting up shop in what is now considered a good investment opportunity, with industrial metalworking giant Kalinski Incorporated requesting permission to open a variety of steel and aluminum forging plants in Basaran. Alongside them, the biomedical and pharmaceutical giant EJK Industries has also sent a request to open three mesecine manufacturing plants, as well as a research facility in the country.
RP: Turtle Bros
Hearing of the independence of Tearth, the Sol Invictus is keen to rekindle their friendship with the southern nation, offering to sign a free trade deal, as well as to invest substantially into the infrastructure of Tearth. An Atralandian mining company, Previn Extraction, has made a request to the Tearth government to grant a mining permit, so that they can open a variety of mines in Tearth.
OORP, sorry for double post, I forgot to include these
RP: An Assurance to Akulda
Hearing of the restoration of military rule in Icewindia, the Invictus has offered a standing offer for refuge for Akulda and any of her government or friends in Frostwindia should Icewindia decide to try and incorporate them. A copy of the Book of Fire has also been sent, per her request.
After receiving the offer, the Tearthian government would accept it. They would also grant the mining company a permit to open mines in the country.
RP: Stronger Together or more economic investments?
Icewindia has offered friendship and offered to give Tearth Protection. If they accept they would officially be incorporated into the Empire. Icewindia clarifies its not an Ultimatum and they can refuse the offer. Icewindia still seeks to invest in country of Tearth as there investers are already using vertical integration in economy and begin to try to use Horizontal Integration to try to bully Woleve Atraland Business in Tearth.
RP: Pledge to Peace (Frostwindia)
Queen Akulda of Frostwindia pledges friendship with Sol invictius and Atraland. She thanks them for their support and will remember this. She reads the Book of Fire and is very interested. She decides to send a copy of the Book to Icewindia but only after translating it into Icewindian this is to cause mayhem among Solists in Icewindia hopefully.
Queen Akulda still has connection from her Mother and she asks if it would be possible to arrange a sit down between Sol Invictius, herself and Queen-Regent with hopefully Blayre 5th to hopefully avoid the coming War. This is her pledge of peace. She hopes to convince her mother to stand down should Icewindia try to make a move against TNL. To prevent the Worst Case Scenario. She hopes she can have Atraland support to help prevent worst case scenario.
RP: The Fall
With the Basars pledge of neutrality within the content of Tengerina, Beakolini was going to hold a speech within the Capitol building. Rallying the nation, he stepped forth to the balcony and began speaking. However, a abnormally strong gust of wind pushed against his back, sending him over the railing. Beakolini fell nearly five stories down onto an awning, catching his fall for a moment before bouncing him up and slamming him onto a car. Avani police rushed to him from below and immediately called the medical services. The Nation was in horror, shock, as he was barely moving from the fall.
Later that day, he was reported to be severely injured but well. Members of the Government knew the truth, he was barely holding onto life. Members wanted to place the old monarchy in place, many wanted Fiia in power. They were indecisive and the military was left without a governing body. So was the economics, the political scene. All of this would lead to something more sinister.
RP: Thank You but No Thank You
Tearth would refuse the offer to be incorporated into the Icewindian empire. However, they still seek to maintain close ties with the big nation south of them. The Tearthian government, meanwhile, would not notice the Icewindian investors attempting to “bully” the Woleve Atralandian investors.
RP: Finding an Emperor
Following a visit to Blayredeshia, Atraland has recovered Dominic Von Braun, and sent him on an immediate flight to Archron Empire to claim his rightful place as leader.
RP: Turtlebro p.2
The mining companies immediately begin searching for ores in Tearth, and set out ads for thousands of miners, offering pay well above the market value. Alongside this, the Sol Invictus has requested a meeting with XY, to discuss Tearths future and it’s friendship with Atraland.
RP: Operation Eagle
News of the tragedy would hit the Island just at the right time. Archian forces placed themselves within their positions. 1 Battalion of Wehrmacht RCA (100 thousand infantry) was placed within the Naval invasion of the western coast of Whiskwindia. Archian ships began moving into place. The other controlled units from Woleve Atraland were stationed on the eastern front, preparing their invasion as well. Archron delivered the notice to the Woleves that the time was right, they were waiting on their go
RP: Operation Eagle is a Go
As the Deepwater Fleet arrives, it quickly takes a position blockading the nation of Avidina, providing naval support to Archron. The green light has been given, the Anschluss is to begin.
RP: The Path Spreads
As the Book of Fire reaches Icewindia, the Path of the Black Sun are quick to capitalize on it, with missionaries setting off to spread the word of the impending apocalypse, and to save the souls of the sinners of Icewindia, hoping to convert Icewindian Solists to Black Sun Solists, so that when the holy fire of Sol is brought by Mikhael and the Army of the Righteous, the Icewindians will be spared.
In the west, Tearth would have many ores, including metals, coal, gold, platinum, copper, and many others, while many turtles would sign up to become miners for the Woleve Atralandian mining company. Meanwhile, the XY would accept the request for the Sol Invictus to meet with her.
RP: The Annexation of Whiskwindia
The Invasion would be given the go. The forces that had arrived on the Island barely had enough time to load before heading out. the ships would take less than 30 minutes to reach the Whiskwindian shores. Along the shores were Whiskwindian citizens, minding their business before the Archian naval vessels landed on the beach. Archian and Woleve troops calming stepped out onto the beach and began moving forward. Many of the Whiskwindians on the beach were highly confused. They looked out more, seeing Archian and Woleve naval vessels within the water. Soon, they would begin to cheer and shout "Our Brethen" in Archian, or so now it was called. These troops were given the orders to march forward, until they couldn't march any longer.
RP: The Crowing of a New Kaiser
As Dominic Von Braun was located and transported from Blayredeshia, he was given a brief overview of all that had happened and occured. He was told the Von Brauns of the Karz line were gone, all around the world now. His dreams of becoming the Archian leader were coming true, and he ran with it.
Taking nearly an hour of two to reach the Archian Island, he was quickly briefed of the invasion, and greeted by the Iron Council. The people of the Island were begging for a new monarch and were soon to have one. Once he was revealed to the public, the people welcomed it with open arms. A ceremony was held but it was quick, as his decisions were needed hastily. He would begin overseeing the Invasion, but soon he would begin looking for his brother and sisters within Blayredeshia. On such short notice, he had much to prove and learn. But he was now crowned the Emperor of Archron. This was not the title he wanted, and immediately demanded to be crowned the Kaiser of Archron. This title was only given to Roma years prior and now he had taken it for himself.
