Secretary: "What is the exact intention of the caller? What exactly is the meaning of the call?"
“I believe it is a warning on the extent of the AMF.”
"Ok then... Please report this to the enforcement then. God bless!" says the secretary, then hangs up.
The Embassy official calls again.
Different secretary: "Who's this?"
"I'm forwarding the call..." he says. After this the Khazar Lechian Anthem starts playing for waiting. It takes two minutes, but Khan picks up.
"The Eternal Skies Reign Forever!" Khan says to greet the caller.
“I’m sure they will. Now, we haven’t met yet, since you were close to Dyfed I didn’t dare to talk to you after what I... did. Now, I have come to, first of all, apologise for exploiting a loophole to gain power then trying different methods to neutralise the threat of Dyfed Synnove, it was a bad thing to have done. But what I really want to discuss with you is the AMF. They are trying to get a handle on political power, something that, if they had, could tear my country apart. You see, Mr Bulan, I am not evil. I am just an opportunist. You can make a deal with me, and we could make good political allies, if you let us.”
"Thank you for saying all this in the most recorded line in the entire region. I will make sure this will get to all the media. Now have fun for the little time you have left..." says the Khan as he hangs up. The entire recording is obviously sent to the media in the entire region as well as the previous attempts to contact the Khan by Godwinson. The Army of Khazar Lechia is moving to the border with Cielearda yet again...
OOC: He literally said "Hi! I'm the guy you hate! If you don't help me I will lose power and will become defenseless, so please help me and we will be friends!"
“Please God, forgive me for I have sinned greatly. Please, great shepherd, allow me to return to the flock, and with me return my nation as a whole.”
“Powerful words from Prime Minister Godwinson there, who has appeared to have returned to the Celtic Protogeni Church and is now encouraging all of us to return to them too. From what we can gather, there has been a huge outpouring of support for the new Prime Minister and for his confession. Wait, it appears he is saying something else...”
“There is a storm coming, my people. A dark and evil storm. Khazar Lechia is threatening to invade us yet again. In our poor and weakened state, the cruel bully next door is kicking us and kicking us, and do you know why? Because they get a kick out of it. They enjoy doing that, because there is nothing else to do in their miserable country. They just sit about in their dirty trailers all day and praise their lord and saviour Mr Bulan. They are approaching our border, and I fear they will take over our country yet again. But we are Cieleardan’s. We have been invaded and pillaged and destroyed, time and again, yet still we rise, challenging our oppressors and taking back our land. Be prepared. Good night, God bless.”
Khazar Protogeni Patriarch of sends a message to the protogenis in Khazar Lechia and Cielearda as well as to the celtic patriarch:
"Glory be to The Father in heaven!
I heard about Godwinson using the church politically... You also happen to know Synnove is indeed alive... This is a concern... I will do all I can to figure it out, but know that Khan does not plan any invasions on Cielearda. I can personally make sure of that.
Godwinson can't insult us like that. There are many celtic protogenis here and the khazar protogenos here and in coelearda know that our true saviour is Jesus Christ and neither Godwinson, nor Bulan! Such a claim is blasphamous and an insult to all of us.
Do not allow anyone to divide us brothers and sisters in Christ! We will prevail, as we always did! One day Synnove will return to you and the blasphemers will be gone..."
“This is CBC news, Wilfred Godwinson has ordered troops to be moved to the borders of Khazar Lechia.”
"A civil war has broken out in Thialrer. The Black Cell has reformed. We need international aid from our allies."
After the inconclusive end to their last meeting, Axel Farreau and Isla Oreth) now the newly anointed Minister of Foreign Affairs) have been tirelessly working to further strengthen their ties to the other nations. Naturally, the two ministers are eager to help put an end to the conflict in Thialrer, and they have already scheduled their departure into the Capitol.
Patriarch Lucas Sutharlainn writes back.
“Dear Patriarch Yehudah,
I understand your desire to hold together this community we have created, but if I were you, I would call into question your trust of your Khan, Bulan. I would ask, what purpose would moving an army to our border serve if not to facilitate an invasion? It would serve none. I come to you, brother, a broken man. My people are sick and tired of this uncertainty, they just want a strong leader, someone they can trust. They trust Godwinson, now that he has turned to God. But they do not trust Khan Bulan, for he has done them wrong. A year ago, the Khan, upon the advice of a Cieleardan government official, intervened in the Second Cieleardan Civil War. This intervention encouraged support from the Cieleardan populace for the Khan and Khazar Lechia. Unfortunately, if the Khan wishes to intervene in Cielearda yet again, that support will drop immediately. Why? Because there is no ethnic cleansing, no tyranny, no sin. Nobody in Cielearda asked for the Khan to invade their sovereign land. The Khan will simply be doing this because he doesn’t like the way that PM Godwinson came into power. Now, I do try to stay out of politics, but on this occasion the people whom God placed under my care are weary and in danger, so I will ask you, only once, to tell your Khan that he must reconsider, or death will reign over this once beautiful land.
Patriarch Lúcas Sutharlainn.”
The Patriarch Yehudah does indeed request Khan to meet him in the cathedral of Saint Arius. The entire event is recorded and even streamed to bishops (including Patriarch Lucas). After the divine Liturgy in which Khan takes the body and blood of christ by himself, as customary for monarchs, he must take a vow in the name of Jesus to never harm any christian, or to never order any harm to any christian in the region. He does so.
After that he is asked to prove himself to the Protogeni community as a whole, as some church leaders mentioned that some suspect him of decadency. He is asked many questions about recent decisions of his. He is asked to explain most of those which were most important.
Khan explains that intervention in Cielearda was supposed to prevent Mantesa from gaining too much power in the country and he supports it with some evidence consisting of orders given to his people, said by the army officials and tactical plans of the operation. He also proves that at least two times Protogeni Churches were protected by Khazar Army instead of attacking the main target which was chosen by Mantesa.
Then he explains the fact Octavius was pardoned. Khan explains that the act of complete bow to the heavenly skies was an act of penance. He says that as a Khan he is still under God and cannot judge a person who officially performed an act of penance toward God, especially in the case where Octavius did most of it out of ignorance and not by a plan. He goes to great detail explaining everything Octavius was charged with and justifying his decision.
Lastly he is told to explain the army close to the border with Cielearda. Khan smiles a bit and says:
"You heard the recording of Godwinson telling me about AMF trying to get political power. I do not plan to intervene. I plan to keep the AMF out of Khazar Lechia. My army has been there, during the ethnic clensing, when they protected people who escaped from it. If the AMF does anything similar my people will be on the border to help anyone who would want to leave. I am no democrat. I have no right to decide who rules in Cielearda as they are not feudal, nor nomadic. I do not plan on doing so. My army will stay on the border to help in case AMF indeed does what Godwinson warned me about, which is tearing Cielearda apart, I will defend the border in case anyone wishes to escape to Khazar Lechia... I understand your concerns and I can replace them with double enforcement if the people of Cielearda feel scared of it. That was not my intention at all to attack anyone."
"Do you think that's enough?" asks Yehudah after Khan is done talking "He is still anointed by heaven, so there can be no questions left... We have to finish this, so if you have any concers, then speak now"
“I need to speak to Khan Bulan.”
Secretary: "He is busy. He has been called for a meeting in the Cathedral..."
“Can I speak to him when he gets back?”
Secretary: "This is not my decision"
OOC: the meeting of Khan and patriarchs must end.
