RP:PM says No
Earlier today, Prime Minister Juan Eva pledged to remain neutral on the tension between the The Gatisland and Blayredeshia, but he also said that he is willing to send humanitarian and medical aid to its TNL counterpart. Eva's government stays loyal to the Nakatoro Treaty which is still valid up to this day. However, Queen Antonina reaches for a ceasefire between the two glorious nations of Kalrania.
RP: Remember, No Artaecusian
As the 4 Diplomats get off the plane and walk into the Artaecusian Airport, They grab their luggage and head into the restroom. Minutes later they re-appear with Body Armor, Ski Mask, and Automatic Weapons. In the blink of an eye, they begin to open fire on everyone. Firing indiscriminately not caring who gets shot. Their main goal appears to do as much damage as possible.
With Hemlock turning the age of 14, its time for his augmentations. With him being in the Spartan core, his height, muscle mass, and ocular vision has been inhanced via the branding of his armor. Hemlock is now ready to be deployed
RP: The Visit of the Emperor

RP: Firebase Mecha....
Hemlock is currently in his Bunk area resting up after Augmentation he is 10 Feet tall after Augmentation tallest Spartan to date. Meeting will occur but Hemlock doesn't know the meeting will happen.
RP: If he agrees?
Lily agrees, on the one condition that Karz needs to agree to the meeting as well. In the meantime, she continues her work on Lirana government economic and military projects
RP: What An Amazing Turn of Events
East Evvia, taking into account that becoming a protectorate of the Archronians will give it better protection from the Evves of the west, and not at all aware of Evve Terre's plans to back Archron in case of a conflict in East Evvia, is willing to become an Archronian vassal.
RP: Forever Curious
As the Encounter in Pontricare becomes more and more popular among the public, calls are being made for the government to make a statement on the matter. The Chancellor has obliged, and made a live broadcast regarding the encounter and all other matters surrounding it.
"We Evacasians are curious people. We seek to know, to learn, and to grow. We strive to be the best we can be. This philosophy carries across all aspects of modern life, and the recent happenings in the Bay are no exception.
The encounter has all but destroyed our beliefs of the world. We previously believed that all nations had been met and mapped; evidently this is not the case. But this is not a bad thing, it is not something to be ashamed or angry of. It's an opportunity. A chance to do what we do best, explore.
An expedition will begin. One to go to beyond the horizon; explore new lands and new possibilities. To carry out the greatest mission one can do, on behalf of our Republic and her people.
A new dawn is upon us, and with it, a whole new age of opportunity! We will go into the vast unknown, and will emerge a greater people than our forefathers ever thought possible! We will stay forever curious, and forever crescive!"
Soon after the statement, a second small fleet set sail from Düblinei. The fleet was similar to the first, consisting of 1 small cruise liner, 1 heavy cruiser, 3 light cruisers and 4 destroyers. Once again, the cruise liner would sail in front with the warships' cannons pointed in random directions. Leading the diplomatic mission was Konstantin Erdmann, an experienced member of parliament who was one of the NLF party's earliest members. The fleet's course follows the coastline heading west, towards the Sea of Trendaline and the Orinaca Ocean. The stated mission is to 'explore new lands, establishing first contact with any new peoples or nations found'.
RP: Evve Terre Legalizes Practice of Solism, But There's a Catch
With recent events, the Evven government finally legalizes Solism. Of course, it has only legalized Satyrnian Solism, more commonly known as Classical Solism, and requires that any practicing Solist must reside within San Solaris, and may not leave the city without proper permits.
Hearing the threats from their supposed "protector" Empress Eerika has issued an order of mobilization. Most of the active RIG personnel is ordered to defend the northern border against the TNL with most focus on the more open areas near the cities of Floreden and Defik. Especially on Defik.
The rest of the RIG has been ordered to guard the coastlines.
RP: Ignored offers
The rebels and their employer have decided to ignore the Icewindian offer- The tank is not taken and even though the operation itself was a success the dagger is not given up, rather it is destroyed and scattered across the Demiran desert so no one will ever have the possibility use it again.
Eerika agrees on the meeting however she does not seem to be too eager to be there.
The RIG is distracted by the Icewindian threats. The Lower Thrones are settled in their paths. The civilians are armed and many of the RIG have sworn loyalty to the new cause.
The declaration of the Common Initiative is made.
Demiran Ase Corporation has sent their demands to Empress Eerika on the High-Throne of Rekken for the independence of the Lower Thrones on Ameria, Ruvenia and Perelevia.
The Perelevians have also demanded freedom for Ömegä.
The three nations have declared they will stand together against the Rekkenian oppression and have formed a defensive union supplied by the Demiran Ase Corporation and lead by a council of the national leaders known as the Common Defense Initiative of Demira.
If the demands are not met the Defensive Union is prepared to take on the wrath of the Rekkenian Empress and those who are still left siding with her in the RIG.
The Demiran nations have begun building defensive trenches and fortifications near all major cities and defensive points on their lands and sending in men to defend said fortifications as the council sees it rather likely that the Empress is not going to give in to the demands. The RIG forces on the coast are demanded to give up their arms or join the Common Initiative.
As discussed earlier by the leaders of the Para and the Miri, a defensive pact has been formed between the two- The pact is called the Uus-Marinia (New Marinia) after an old Empire that used to stand on the place of the two current states.
With this new pact a declaration of intependance from the Imperiumi of Rekken is done and a pact of non-aggression is suggested to the newly formed Defense Initiative of Rekken.
Much like the Demiran nations the Maranians have begun fortifying their borders and looking for active RIG personnel needing to be kicked out of the area or joint into the Maranian defense force consisting of local militias and the large personal guards of the leaders of the Para and the Miri.
Meanwhile on Fokkenia the Representatives' Council has requested a status of a protectorate from Icewindia in order to secure their safety.
Knowing the RIG will most likely turn extremely hostile against the Fokkenians and the other states broken off of Rekken the Representatives' Council has suggested the hopefully readied Icewindian military to strike over the border before the RIG is given new orders.
RP: State of War
The Empress Eerika has declared a state of war against the disloyal lower thrones- The RIG is ordered to "Kill all those who oppose the Imperiumi and the divine rule of the Empress".
Due to most of the RIG being on the coasts and the norhtern border the Empress has taken her personal elite guards and begun organizing a strike against Uus-Marinia in order to connect back with her main RIG force.
Meanwhile the eastern coastal RIG force has mostly given in to the Demiran demands of joining their cause or disarming- those who have not have fortified their positions and redied themselves for battle of defense that is expected to last until the RIG from Rekken arrives to help them.
The coastal RIG who are dug in waiting for the forces of the Empress have also requested support from their Accord ally of Dwarf Land4 who have fleet basing rights on the port of Selkämä- the only actual city the RIG holds on the coast.
RP: Here we go again...
Esolda gets Kowen/Rumanian Vibes from all of this. Esolda attempts to March 200,000 Conscript Army to Protect Rekken-Fokkenians from the Mad Empress. Esolda accepts offer from Fokkenia she will defend the Holy Land from Mad Empress. Anyone else who wants to break off the Mad Empress Icewindia will protect them even if it means War with Empress Eerika however she refuses to recognize Demirian disloyal Traitors.
Esolda states that Emperor Karz of Archondia Archron Empire should assume the Rekken Throne as Regent for his Son since Eerika is not fit to rule and Rebellion has struck Rekken.
The Lirana begin allowing Volunteers from the Marine Force based in the East to go aid the Rekkenian Loyalists, with some 7,000 having joined. They do not commit the main bulk of the MEF, instead

Divine Empress Esolda States to Dwarf that Empress Eerika has gone Insaine and that Dwarf is either with Esolda or with the Mad Empress.
The NSA officially announces that the newly named Tropical Bird 1 will launch today. and it is loaded with a radar that will predict weather for Nonadia. The site of launch is attended by 700 people and the official Nonadian Space Agency television channel and Nonatube channel receive 70 million views. The launch takes place in Gady due to its location on the beach. 2 floating platforms are sent by tugboats into the Strait of Nonadia to allow the boosters on the rocket to land in the strait.
The rocket launched at 3:50 P.M on the 23rd of December 2112, and it was celebrated around Nonadia and it seemed a new age of space exploration was among Nonadia. The sattelite made it into orbit at 11:30 P.M, and the Nonadian Weather Service updated their app to rely on the Nonadian satellite for cloud looks and height data and hurricane size data.
RP: ok then
With the recent launch of rocket, the Nonadian government sees it as a time to take sides in the Rekkenian Rebellion. Due to 60% of imports coming from Rekken, Nonadia sends a message to Rekken, in which Rekken will sign a free trade agreement with Nonadia (which Rekken can withdraw from at any time) and in return Nonadia will aid the Loyalist cause.
RP: Liisa discovers her heritage
Within the Archronian libary, her wife, Rose, offered her a book on the legacy of Otto (Sorry if I spelled it wrong)Gulak. She read and read until she got to Ottos descendants. She read that she was the only known descendant. Later that week, Liisa would get a genetic test to only find out the book was true.
RP: Liisa requests aid
Seeing the situation in Rekken, Liisa wants what is rightfully hers. She, along with Rose, approaches Esolda of Icewindia and requests her aid
RP: Aid is appreciated
The Augustine Junta has decided to give League forces control over certain zones, designating several recently conquered areas that the Nationalist forces have issue controlling (either due to it's rebelliousness or remoteness) that will be garrisoned by League forces until the end of the conflict.
Though the Nationalists are uneasy about the operation, they let it go ahead in an attempt to drain northern morale. They also propose creating a unified air command between Blayredeshia, Icewindia and the small but growing Nationalist Air Force
RP: A cease-fire?
While the federal government has entertained the idea of a cease fire and spoken of it's possibility, the nationalist Augustine Junta has refused a cease fire in the present. Claiming that such action "would only buy time that the scheming northern socialists do not deserve" and has refused a cease fire at the present moment.
RP: The Offensive Swings East
The Mec II offensive has been incredibly succesful in leveraging league support and airpower for immense gains for Nationalist forces. The nationalists now appear to be making a play for the east as the bulk of the advance has been eastward towards the Paysanie province and southeastern Vossefaire province. This new part of the offensive appears to be pressure on the remaining socialist forces in the east of the country to surrender as the north of Ourandois remains under socialist control despite repeated attempts from Tiberi to push past the Black Mountain's pass. The new offensive has leveraged the ever flattening terrain of the Gatisian north to use mechanized forces from Blayredeshia to drive a wedge through socialist forces. The mechanized forces quickly pushed through much of Paysanie, pushing back it's demoralized and thinning garrison and capturing most of it's territory. The gains here have increased the role that Gaultier province plays as they are now the only socialist controlled zone connecting northern Ourandois to the north with it's section of the national highway becoming a "road of life" for the socialists as it remains the only reliable way to ferry supplies and soldiers to the battered north as the east slips further from their grasp. In Vossefaire the nationalists managed to push further towards the former socialist capital of Therveux (Currently occupied by Mayor Garreau and his free zone) taking more land in it's southern half however they were stopped by a contingent of Gatisian armour divisions from pushing further and the socialists still hold the small contingent of land south of the city, though the forces there remain in an incredibly precarious position.
RP: Paysanie province surrenders
With the capture of much of Paysanie's land, the socialist governor of the province has announced his signing of an armistice with the local League commanders and a representative of the Augustine Junta, declaring that "Paysanie can no longer continue to labour under the pain of conflict and must put the pieces back together and continue on the road to prosperity". In the stipulations of the armistice, Paysanie will now fully be occupied by league forces and will be governed by an appointed military commander that will govern the region and it's affairs and the governor shall order that all of the Agrarien militias in the province must disarm and hand over their arms to the new occupying force. Though the resolution has been welcomed by the Augustine Junta, the federal government has decried the surrender and announced it will continue to occupy the east of the province as it sees the armistice as illegitimate. Though not all of the province was gained, the forcing of a provincial authority to it's knees is an important political victory against the government.
RP: Yirvaire Pocket Falls
The obstinate pocket of pro-GDF towns in the southwest of the country has, despite their best efforts, fallen to a nationalist force. Though they were able to repulse them before, the fury of federal nationalist leadership over the defeat of their forces against under-equipped civilian militias seems to have bested them. The force of 3000 soldiers escorted by 50 fighters from the nationalist air force swept through the small pocket of resistance, declaring the area liberated after a scattered series of clashes over a 13 hour period with the local leadership who declared the area for the GDF fleeing across the border in fear of retaliation as the white gold and blue banner flew from the tops of the city halls as the newest gain for the nationalists is secured.
RP: The Stage Is Set
With Therveux is practical spitting distance of Nationalist forces, both sides eye the young free zone which has protected most of the city from the bombing campaigns of the League but which the capture of would immensely benefit each side. The city is important not only for the propaganda value of holding the largest city in the country and all it's iconic monuments, but as well as the city's thick outer walls present as for the government they could be a great lynchpin for a defensive line they hope will help them hold the north of the country as winter sets in and makes the recent mechanized offensives more difficult. But for the nationalists, the iconic Garabien bridge presents a golden opportunity to easily ferry armoured units north which will help them bypass the northern edge of the center valley and make their way into the northern agricultural flatlands. As both sides peer at each other through the gathering fog, both bide their time to see who will violate the free zone first and begin possibly the most important confrontation of the war.
The Republic of The Gatisland
Leader: President Mesny
Alliance: Augustine Junta
The king across the pond has come home. Exiled following his disgrace and ejection from power, President Mesny has used his position as head of the government in exile in Salis and his continued harsh critiques of the socialist government to gain both support and financial backing for the insurgent militias on the exiled government’s payroll from the wealthy community of Gatisian exiles. Now that he has returned he faces the task of a bloody campaign north and a need to regain the popular support of the people as well as the younger guard of the movement to further his aims.
National Republican Militia
Leader: Armel Marrast
Alliance: Augustine Junta
“L’armee d’Armel” as it is often jokingly referred to, represents the young guard of the nationalist movement. Arising years after the revolution as a radical student group in the Southern Agricultural University, the group separated itself from the mainstream Mesnyist groups for it’s syncretic ideology that attempts to meld corporatistic economics with traditionalist social views. Driven underground, the group found new life as their charismatic leader Armel Marrast molded it into a powerful group of militias which aims to achieve Marrast’s “Nouvel État”. Though they have cooperated with Mesny so far, the two groups often view each other with suspicion and are only united by their hatred of the central government, though even this alliance may have it’s limits.
The Socialist Federation of The Gatisland
Leader: President Pro-Tempore Charles Barthet
Shaken by a multitude of crises, the socialist central government is in dire straits, with a financial and domestic crises creating the biggest threat to the post-revolution politics and the Cazalite policies that have been implemented in its wake. Governing from Therveux, the government has attempted to further industrialise the country while pursuing a more internationalist foreign policy, though the nationalist threat has only since escalated. Barthet has managed to evade the total collapse of the federation, but the loss of southern control has already shaken confidence in his administration, and it seems unlikely he will remain as president. The units of the remainder of the federal army have professional training and equipment stockpiles, but their tactics must be chosen carefully to best the tenacity of the rebels. The government must choose a new leader and will try to manage both domestic and international relations to ensure that the federation shall not die how it was born.
Gatisian Democratic Forces
Leader: Governor Robert Marais, Jordi Calet
A union borne of need, the Gatisian Democratic Forces are a collection of irregular ethnic militias and federal police and army units which have been coalesced to defend the areas of Galtier province and the Mardoba River Autonomous Region. Though recently established the new players in the much changed political landscape of Gatisia have managed to maintain control over their claimed area and have repulsed the minor incursions made by nationalist fighters. Governed from Edennes, the newly minted proto-state is governed by a political diarchy of each entity’s leader in an attempt to balance this new union which for now remains a defensive pact against the Mesnyists but could turn into a more aggressive force for change and democracy should the sands shift in their favour.
Therveux Free Zone
Leader: Armel Garreau
Armel did not wish this upon Therveux, but his hands were forced after some of the worst communal violence the city had seen since the revolution broke out and exposed the deep divisons in the city. After he saw the government continue down a path of "pacification" he saw as suicidal and counterproductive he has declared the capital a "free zone". Though the declaration has given the city a much needed respite from the clashes and violence that have been tearing at it's once famous stability, the pressure on the new administration is great. The ire he has raised in the north is great and the nationalists have only since been emboldened by his concessions towards them which threatens to break Armel's dream of a peaceful and prosperous city at every step his administration takes.
The Nationalist Government of Ourandois
Leader: Armand Tiberi
Alliance: Augustine Junta
Tiberi had though his career in politics was over. After stepping down following two terms as the popular elected governor of the province of Ourandois. He retired to his summer cabin in the southeast of the province, expecting a quiet retirement. When public opinion turned against the political right following the Wheat-Stalk Revolution, Tiberi fled to Salis. There he settled in a majority Gatisian exile neighborhood and attempted to live a quite life, initially refusing to return and support a faction due to his centrist leanings and dissatisfaction with the beliefs of the various insurrectionists. It is perhaps this centrism is the reason that the two nationalist factions picked him for their great gamble. Though his popularity seems to have won him control of the south of his province, it is not a job he wants and he now faces the task of juggling the influence of the two factions who forced his return as well as scrutiny to attempt to present his government to the wider country and world as something other than a weak nationalist puppet.
The Blayredeshian response to Ponticianre choosing to stay out of the war was one of confusion and anger as the Imperial Marshal Cleburne Bell stated in a speech:
“It seems to me that our once gallant allies in Ponticianre have chosen to abandon their sacred oath of commitment to the Nationalist League to combat the spread of socialism in favor of kowtowing the dying powers. The Great War is behind us and the powers in the Accord that forced Ponticianre to disarm are either dead or dying. I am not sure why else the Poncitianre government has chosen to only call the full scale war we are involved in ‘tensions’ but it only further emphasizes my point: Ponticianre should abandon that dead treaty and resume its place in Kalrania as a military power. To those in power in Ponticianre consider this my version of extending the olive branch: rejoin the crusade against communism and abandon the dead treaty of Nakatoro.”
It is unknown how Ponticianre will react but many noted the Blayredeshian Marshal did have a point; the nations that bound Ponticianre to the Treaty of Nakatoro are in weakened or collapsed states or completely separate from their Accord past entirely. The only question remaining is: will Ponticianre rejoin the anti-communist crusade?
RP: The Free Staters
With the permission of the Nationalist Augustine Junta of The Gatisland; Major General Andreas Karloff has begun preparations to transition territories under Blayredeshian-Nationalist control in the north to the Gatisland Free State with himself as the Governor General of the Free State. The Free State is meant to operate as a transitional government to govern the northern conquered territories of the Gatisland and purge them of left-wing influence meanwhile promoting neutrality between the Conservative Mesnyists and the Far-Right Marrastists. The end goal being for Karloff as Governor-General to have purged leftism from the north and prepare the territories as well as all provinces for the eventual elections between Mesny and Marrast. Although winning the war is still General Karloff’s first priority as many expect him to attempt to blitzkrieg the north in the coming campaigns given its flatter terrain.
RP: Space faring
The Space Agency of the Commonwealth has made new strides towards interstellar exploration, including the creation of a star way and an surface to orbital elevator connecting with part of the space station allowing for even easier access than shuttle faring which takes significantly longer. In addition to this the one of the space expeditions and projects launched has created a permanent settlement and structure on Kalraina's moon (OORP: correct me if there is no moon plz). To add to this, the Commonwealth has reached out to Nonadia, to increase cooperation and capabilities for both nations and is open to negotiations for such.
RP: More border provocation
The Luwuian National Guard has conducted more military exercises on the border with Nonadia. This has been the largest exercise on the border so far with soldiers still pointing their guns on the other side of the border and even shooting into what is considered Nonadia. The difference this time is that Armored assets were involved mostly IFV's. The IFV's repeatedly fired their 30mm Autocannons and ATGM missiles into Nonadian territory with a complete disregard for any life that may be in the direction they're shooting in.
RP: Protest over healing from fascist
ICN(Iron Comarakan News): This just in The workers of the three worlds are in a protest over all of the world 1, 2, and current world over not knowing how to fix from fascism and other nationalist groups like with humanism. The group known as the VFC (Victims of Fascism in Comaraka) have called apon the new workers assembly to fix this problem and see what needs to be done. The Head leader is currently working it and see what can the Ironist Party do.
RP: Stopping for No Man
The Schismian trade ship, 'the Calc' has refused to respond or halt to the Demitorian naval forces, attempting to breakthrough the blockade by slipping past the ships. However, the weight of the Calc's cargo has noticeably slowed the ship's speed. Furthermore, as the Calc nears the Demitorian Cruiser, soldiers stationed aboard have begun aiming their ballistic rifles at the enemy as warning to not interfere.
RP: Tear Down the Hallowed
In the Northern Schism, a large conglomeration of survivors have formed around the disturbed ruins of Zachsville, once the largest city in the province of Theda. The survivors themselves hail from numerous outlying towns and villages, but have since settled into a semi-stable community after traveling countless miles across the tundra. However, food and clean water has remained far from being readily available, and infighting remains rampant. Despite this, little progress has been made to continue traveling North, as Dual Church planes have been continuously patrolling the skies above the Northern Schism.
Farther east, in the Borderland Province of Forwest, villages on the frontier of the Schismian mountains have been reporting odd figures moving around the houses and churches on the outskirts of towns at night. Witnesses have reported the figures have remained unresponsive to their calls and seem to avoid becoming fully revealed by flashlights or other light sources, darting away at the last moment. So far, the figures have only appeared around the houses notable religious leaders in Forwest, leading many to believe (and fear) that outcasts from Eftmind have managed to make it past the mountains and are now planning to attack the Dual Church. In response, Cardinal Dukei of Forwest has arranged an extermination party of nearly 600 to search the woods of northern Forwest for these "trespassers and heretics." The night after this decree, Cardinal Dukei claimed to have woken to a clamor in her manor. Upon investigation, Dukei discovered her front door totally ripped from its hinges and smashed against a large painting of her family. The Cardinal has reportedly since installed surveillance cameras around her premises.
