Requisition Subtotal: 1
- Income: +4
- Expenses: -4
- Final Total: 1


National Interest

Industry: Upgrade Province 208 to Farmland. Upgrade Province 210 to Port. -4 Requisition

Province 212: Sunset Island - Farmland.

Province 211: Scarthmoor - Farmland.

Province 210: Winterreise Victoria - Farmland, Upgrading to Port.

Province 203: Frontier Alpha - The frontier province which meets with Hiigara, this province has seen some subtle fortification in case of attack.

Province 205: Northern Tip - The northern tip of the Kingdom, this province is fairly ordinary.

Military Action

1st Infantry Division continue drilling in Province 210.

Expansion and Diplomacy

Colonisation: Begin immediate colonisation of Provinces 204 & 199.

Diplomacy:

Donatus finally reached Sunset Island, and made haste to his villa. The diplomats from the Republic of Equas and the Darcsen Empire had been called, and it was time to see if they would arrive and begin the Conference.

"Minister", called Donatus to a nearby orderly, "Call the Round Table Conference. It shall begin as soon as all the diplomats arrive, and I shall lay out my proposition for these two nations."

1st Round Table Conference, between the Holy Kingdom of Winterreise, the Religious Republic of Equas, and the Darcsen Empire, has been called and scheduled for the next update. Diplomats from both nations have been given plenty of time to arrive and are expected to join the Conference to maintain good relations with the other two nations involved.

Not-so-random event

David Fern, a farmer living in Scarthmoor knelt down to his son, “listen ma’ boy, you stay away from those farms, the one with the soldiers, alright?” His small child looked up at his father.
“Why daddy?” he asked, the big man put a hand on the child’s shoulder, “just stay away son, just stay away”
Although things have been going spectacularly well in our new Royal Communal Farms (nicknamed ‘sinner pits’ by the soldiers working there) Maj. Urgola, the officer in charge of the camps is somewhat worried.
“It’s only a matter of time before a local stumbles upon these camps, only last week I arrested a man for getting too close to the perimeter. However, I have a solution; just safe of the Hiigaran Empire are a group of small islands (214) they would make a perfect spot for the sinner- erm, Royal communal farms! The Hiigaran Empire has a lot of influence in that area so we could draw up a treaty allowing us to inherit the islands! They would be a sort of penal colony, and I’d have just about every sinner in the country shipped there not just the dammed Atheists!”



Donatus leaned back in his throne. This was not good timing; the Crusader-King was trying to establish relations in the Round Table Conference and now he had nosy villagers in Scarthmoor trying to find out about Royal Communal Farms. He tapped his fingers in impatience.

"We can't petition the Hiigaran Empire to establish a Penal Colony within sight of their mainland, it would ruin our international reputation and is far away from our own Kingdom. There is another, larger island (213), however, which would serve well both as a strategic harbour for our fleets and to give over the mainland for the Communal Farms. Either way I wish to have this island colonised, so we shall do so after the northern provinces have been fully colonised. For now, however, we're just going to have to enforce tighter guard patrols on the existing Farms in Scarthmoor and hope that the filthy atheists in Dratveld have learnt their lesson and seen the light of God."

NSRE Result: Whilst the King expresses consent over the creation of a Penal Colony off the mainland, he disagrees over the proposed location. Donatus would prefer a closer island, which is larger and more strategic for the fleets of Winterreise, which he will colonise as soon as possible. For the moment, however, stricter guard policies have been enforced on the existing Farms in Scarthmoor in an effort to deter any more curious villagers.

Requisition Update

Carried over requisition= 1
Earned=6
Total=7

National Interest

Build farms on provinces 136,126 (4 req)
Build railroads on province 123 (3 req)

“The beasts of iron and steam became a common sight across Akkad, a reminder of our great artistry and alchemical knowledge”

Engineer apprentice Mutab leant out the window, air whipping past his face. The young man had never imagined man could travel so fast! He was being carried along by a great steam engine, the great machine chugging along with no horse or ox to pull it. He imagined himself driving one of these wonderful creations, alone with nothing but the railroad for company. His supervisors shrill voice shattered his reverie, bringing him back to his job of fuelling the boiler. Hefting his shovel, young Mutab smiled ruefully before taking hand to task.

Expansion and Diplomacy

Send envoys to The Darcsen Empire and The United States of Caledonia requesting trade agreements and bearing reassurances of peace and friendship. The ambassadors come loaded with gifts and treasures and will ask to establish embassies and engage in dialogue.

“Great Sargon did cast his eye over the world and saw it full with teeming life. He did decide to welcome his brother rulers into the light of civilisation and call them friend”

Colonise provinces 138, 137

“The Empire grew evermore, like the great lion marking his range”

Tulwar Asharpi sat astride his horse, watching a village burn. Another thatch roof had caught fire, the dry material like kindling for the hungry flames. Bodies littered the ground, rant by sword and spear. He did not enjoy this work but it was necessary. The empire needed this land, The God-King had demanded it. The barbarians had refused to give it up, and so suffered the inevitable fate of all those who opposed great Sargon.

NSRE

Why waste a statue? Sargon orders his stone masons to carve off the face of the statue and instead add his own. The statue is then brought to the capital to display. It would not do for the peasents to learn there were nations before Akkadia.

‘In this year a new statue was dedicated to God-King Sargon of the Akkadian Dynasty, fifty first of that name, King of Kings, Regent of Heaven, Divine Vessel, Celestial Son, Namer of Men, Keeper of Truths, High Judge of Law Satrap of Akkad, Babylon and Syria, Master of a Million Men, Master of Horses, Commander of the Chariots, Guardian of Akkad in all his splendour and glory’.

Requisition Summary

Starting=7

Turn Three

July 1851, to December 1851

Not-so-random events:


Global event – Europe is alive, with the sound of music

This turn you lose your colonisation bonus, meaning you can only colonise one province per turn.

Doctor Robert E Lee, an ex-officer of the Floridian Dominion Army turned musician, was sitting as his desk. It had been a week since his article had been featured in the converted newspaper
World Affairs, and already progress had been made. Doctor Lee was already famous for his music and art but he had looked upon the nations of the world with disgust, and here was why: He had always said the world’s nations had not true appreciation for music, but now he found a way to fix that. He had told a reporter of World Affairs every nation should have its own national anthem, to help them rediscover music. His idea had now reached Europe, the centre of world power and if he could get them to come up with their own national anthem then the world would surely follow.

This is an opportunity to be creative; you may come up with your own national anthem and
slogan, how you do this is entirely up to you.

The Holy Kingdom of Winterreise -
Per l'onore d'Italia!
At last! Our hard work has not gone to waste! We have taken all of what the old scriptures call “Italy” This land has been the centre of power for thousands of years. It is where the romans began their mighty empire and some of the finest minds have come out of here. But now is a chance to write history, we can rename this land and its people. So all the many cultures may come together and be name done culture, after all, this is the homeland of our people.

The Akkadian Empire – Fire!!!

The God-King Sargon, the mighty ruler of the Akkadian Empire looked out across the smouldering ruins of former Imperial Palace. He sighed, sometime during the night a fire had started and the old palace couldn’t bear the burden. He had escaped unharmed, thankfully he had not been hurt but a guard and a servant had died in the Inferno. He would need a new palace, but that appeared to be the least of his worries, the crowd standing nearby appeared to be thinking aloud.

“Foreigners did this!”


“Rebels!”


“The statue is cursed!”


“These old buildings are too weak for modern use!”


The Realm of Izgurka – A land lost in mist

When Caption Hiken arrived in Ireland with a promise of support for the Irish and Scottish People he was met by 10,000 Irish Militia and a lot of mist. Training had been going well, the Irish were a race a hardy people whom had lived their entire lives under the threat of death, and they made excellent candidates. It was an odd sight to behold, a well-dressed officer training a group of barbarians who wore an odd collection of animal fur, kilts and the occasional medieval weapon.
After a day of Training Hiken was summoned to the presence of John McNeil, a withered old Irishman and Conan Gant, a bear-like Scotsman. John McNeil was the closest thing these guys had to a president, he may be old and sick but his people claimed he had “The knowledge of a thousand men” John was accompanied by Conan Gant, who was basically the commander-in-chief of the Celtic armies, he was famed throughout Scotland as a mighty warrior. They made an excellent pair, bringing brains and brawn.


“Caption Hiken” John said “we appreciate your work for us, despite the recent losses in Scotland we hope to us this new army to counter-attack the English and drive them back”


“That is good, I wish you the very best on the battlefield”


“But” he continued “we have something to discuss”

Conan spoke for the first time “We want to know why you’re here”
Hiken gave him a puzzled look.

“We want to know why; a great nation from across the seas would want to help a group of people inferior to themselves”

Hiken opened his mouth to talk, but no words came out. In truth, he did not know, he was just acting on the orders of Heffion. He need an answer quickly;
“we…saw people and danger and decided to help”

John McNeil raised an eyebrow

The Empire of England – They aren’t all the same…

Ever since the Anglo-Celtic war started there was always one province in southern Ireland that had remained neutral. From the very start they had said that the war would do more harm the good, whatever the outcome, and as they were the poorest place on the Island it would have not done any good at all. But the leaders of this place had seen what the major powers could do for them, they had seen the vast countries, the fine art, they had seen it all and said: “we want some of that”.

So it was, in secret, that the leaders of this province had sent a letter to the Empire of England which stated that they would support the English cause so long as when the war was over they could take a place within the Empire, a place where they would be treated as equals. To prove their loyalty to the English Monarchy they had sent inside the letter a valuable and dangerous piece of Information:


“The Realm of Izgurka has sent officers to train and an army to fight English Soldiers, the reasons for this are unknown but they will be able to field a proper army very soon”


The United States of Caledonia – Russian Tides

The great wasteland of Russia, it is a huge, barren place. Home to many tribes and nations, some say it is a place of evil and destruction. It is somewhere where many Europeans would rather ignore, because if they try hard enough they might forget about it. Many nations have tried to subdue the savage tribes people, but with little success. The United States of Caledonia is on the very edge of the Russian Wilds, and the nation has always been seen as a sort of border state, to keep trouble makers out of Europe. However, it has come to our attention that a new power is rising in Russia. This new threat is not trying to annex the savage people, simply because it is them. The Empire is growing quickly and rumours say it will in Europe soon; the people are worried, some say war is on the way and Europe is ignorant. Never has so much pressure been on our shoulders.

The Kingdom of Vendsyssel – Colonisation goes wrong!

Disaster! Although the province of Belgien was meant to be peacefully annexed into the country the nation, the Paris Committee, a country they hold common cultural ties was founded and the people of Belgien hesitated. Between the foreign empire and the democracy they hold close ties with, they picked the democracy. After returning from a disrupted mission to colonise the area many of our people were very upset, saying that Soldiers from Paris had barred the way to the province and forced them to leave. However, nobody was hurt. Now we must act, so King, what are your commands?

The Darscen Empire – New Neighbours

With the help of the Empire of Hiigara, the Turkmen Federation rose to power. But to become a real nation it needs to be recognised by the international community as a sovereign state. As the Federation’s closest neighbour Europe will look to us for our thoughts, they know nothing of this new nation, but all we have to do is look over our border. The Turkmen Federation is a sound nation, with little for us to fear or worry about, but it means the gateway to the black sea is now controlled by two countries instead of one. So my Lord, what should we tell the peoples of Europe?

The Empire of Hiigara – “Patchwork nation”

The Empire of Hiigara, moving from the lands of “Spain” in “Gaul”, it is getting bigger, stronger and greater all the time. While we my revel in our own, personal success Hiigara is not just a nation of Hiigarans, now it has many more nationalities within its borders; From Gauls and Istanbens to Parsans, these people easily outnumber that of our primary cultures. We need to decide now what sort of stance we’re going to take on minorities.

Religious Republic of Equas – post plz?

Oh dear jacko, you missed an update. Your NSRE will be the same as before.

Illyrian Empire – The Brewing Storm

“We saw the ship with our own eyes, the Caldari are coming! And when they arrive we will face the full onslaught of their power!” shouted the local priest, he stood in the main square of the nation’s capital. “God has sent them to test us!”

The local military police began to move up to detain the man.


“The people in the west of our nation have seen them! Ships, men, soldiers! All are coming to kill our men! Rape our women! Put our children in slavery!”


One Officer readied his baton, expecting a fight.

The priest took a step back and drew a crude knife, but continued his ranting:

“Our leaders are too scared to react! They will be the death of us!”

The officer took a swing with his baton; the priest fell to the floor.

The Paris Committee founded!

A new nation, going by the name of The Paris Committee was founded recently. It is based around the city of Paris, which has always been a rich, heavily populated and culturally diverse place to live. The country generally accepts all cultures although there has been some reported discrimination to cultures from what they call “foreign, imperialist empires” but nothing serious.

This is an opportunity to be creative; you may come up with your own national anthem and slogan, how you do this is entirely up to you.
National Anthem:

The Anthem of the English Empire is modeled after the "Land of Hope and Glory" Anthem, with a few changes.

Land of Hope and Glory,
Mother of the free,
How shall we extol thee,
Who are born of thee,
Wider still and wider,
Shall thy bounds be set,
Emperor who made thee mighty,
Make thee mightier yet!
Emperor who made thee mighty,
Make thee mightier yet!



Slogan:

Imperiosus Victoria

Requisition Subtotal: 0

-Total Requisition at the start of the Turn: 2
-Income: +1
-Expenses: -2
-Final Total: 0

National Interest: For the Glorious Empire

Province 3 - Riverrun.
Province 4 - Dragonsbone.
Province 5 - Wales - Farm.
Province 6 - Catharidge.
Province 7 - The Emperor's Palace.
Province 8 - East Walkfeyd.
Province 9 - The Devonian Farmlands - Farm.
Province 10 - Port Dover - Port.
Province 83 - Forthland.
Province 84 - New England.

Wales, Province 5 has been turned into a farmland under orders from the Emperor, to provide upkeep for the Empire of England, and support in its wars. (This will then make sure that England gets 2 Requisition per turn.)

Diplomacy and Expansion:

Expansion: Spreading the Word

Begin Temporary Occupation of Province 2, Scotland, from the rebellious Celtic Union. Preachers are sent into the Nation with orders to spread the word of the Emperor, and little tax is taken from the citizens of Scotland while they adapt to being under the rule of the Emperor. Emperor Northwinson II himself has also recently gone on a tour of the newly conquered lands, and slowly but surely, the people of Scotland are beginning to change their views from that of the old and uncultured barbarianism, to the new beliefs of the Empire. Note that the Scotland is still technically not part of the British Empire, but will be once the Celtic Union is destroyed. No Province is conquered, although Province 11, Southern Ireland, will become part of the Empire once the Celtic Union is crushed, as per a treaty organized by the English Empire and the people of the aforementioned province.

Diplomacy: Asking Questions

An ambassador, flanked by an armed bodyguard in case of any troubles like the previous cold-blooded attacks made by the Celtic Union, is sent to the The Realm of Izgurka with orders to seek of a way of withdrawing their support from helping the Celtic Union, and ask a question as to why they are helping honourless barbarians in the first place.

The Emperor of England is still waiting a response from the Empire of Hiigara concerning matters of establishing trade routes, and the matter of forging a possible alliance.

A third ambassador has been dispatched to Province 13, the last remnants of the Celtic Union with an armed escort under the banner of peace with an aim to unite the two nations. The Celtic Union has been promised a peaceful transition into the English Empire, and are allowed the benefits of normal Imperial citizens plus to keep their religious beliefs and ways of practicing, and, if inducted to the English Empire, the Union is allowed to add their own advisors to the Imperial Court.

Military and Naval Actions: Repairing Damage

The First and Second Imperial Regiments are ordered to remain in Scotland (Province 2) until it is a fully established colony of the British Empire. They have been ordered to repair damage caused by the invasion, through methods such as repairing towns, bridges, and creating trade links between the newly conquered Province and the rest of the Empire.

NSRE: They aren’t all the same…

Ever since the Anglo-Celtic war started there was always one province in southern Ireland that had remained neutral. From the very start they had said that the war would do more harm the good, whatever the outcome, and as they were the poorest place on the Island it would have not done any good at all.

An ambassador is sent to Southern Ireland to agree to the terms presented by the nation, with one possible, although optional request, to raise a regiment for the cause of the British Empire.

Christopher smiled as he saw the crows of nobles milling about in the courtyard below. He took a deep breath before stepping out to adress his people.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, Silence please. I have called you all before me today for one reason. I have heard stories that my people do not beleive the murder of my brother to have been a good thing. They are wrong! My brother was a trickster and a fraud. He would have pulled this nation down into the hell of war if only to give him a little more power or money. I trust you have all seen his plans and know of his true intentions. But i have called you here today to prove once and for all that my brother dying has benefitted out nation. I plan to do this by showing you just how far we have come in the world of science. By revealling to you, noble people, the Locomotive!"

With that a curtain behind Christopher dropped and a shining beast of steel and iron was revealed to the crows. Christopher turned and walked down from the platform, smiling at the oohs and ahhs and thinking just how much money the railways will bring to the nation.

Military Action

1st Artillery Regiment moved to Kirstan.

NSRE

As soon as his announcment was made Alexander hurried to the new province of Kirstan to survey the place the locals called the Russian Wilds. As Alexander looked over the bleak landscape a cold breeze caused him to pull his cloak tighter around himself. He hated this place already. but if Caledonia was to survive it would need to expand over these wastes. Alexander turned to a soldier that was standing nearby.

" Take this message to Lord James Fraser. I want him to take a small group of soldiers out into these 'wilds' and make contact with the tribes inhabiting them. I want him to find out how they feel about us taking their land and wether they are up for possible alliances"

"Understood Sir"

The soldier quickly ran off to find the diplomat and to pass on the message. As another cold wind blew Alexander shivered and turned to make his way back to his warm tent.

Facing the World
The bay was awash of anchored vessels, large and small, with shore going craft constantly hauling wares out to the waiting transports. The seaside air was abuzz with seagulls and commands in a dozen different languages as hired crews loaded their ships and prepared to set sail on behalf of the Hiigaran Empire, which as of yet had no merchant navy of its own. The captain looked out from the side of his craft, still trying to grasp the sudden burst of activity that had swarmed Hiigara's coasts in the recent weeks; he had last visited the once secluded land three years ago, and returned now not to a primitive and isolated kingdom, but to a rapidly modernizing empire in the midst of an economic boom. He had first heard the commotion from fellow sea travellers by word of mouth, the noticeably increased traffic in his usual shipping lanes across the meditteranean was due to the reformed nation's flexing of its economic muscle in an attempt to support the Turkmen federation. Yet it was in the North coast where the captain found himself work, as part of a fleet heading to the War torn isles in the North-West of the continent, where the English Empire and Celtic Union were fighting a bitter battle. He was instructed that the Hiigaran Empire had for some time now been seeking some way to help its friend in what it saw as it's 'internal disputes', yet with not even a merchant fleet to its name, let alone armies, there was little chance of the Empire sending military aid; and thus a decision was made. The Hiigaran silos were overflowing with grain, much of which wouldn't survive the long journey to it's Turkmen ally, and as such, was in danger of rotting away as surplus, yet this presented a solution to both of the Empire's problems; excess grain would be traded with the English Empire as the foundation of a trade route between the nations. Armies on campaign were notorious to feed, as were populations gearing for war, the Empire of Hiigara could offer the English greatly reduced prices and subsidies on its grain during the war, and help ease the burden it was facing.

The Committee
The ambassadors from the Empire of Hiigara arrived at the Parisan capital still in the crisp of the morning, extending warm hands of peace and trade to the small country, as well as queries of sharing information on potential future growth, lest the two nations' goals collide.

The Republic

Nokubura rose from the bow he had presented to the President-Cardinal of Equas, wincing ever so slightly as his wounds reminded him that he was not as youthful as he once was. He had travelled a great distance to personally meet with the man before him, despite all the obstacles they had faced, it could all turn out to be for naught if the Emperor had misinterpreted the personality of Thomas Marechal. One thing was for sure, Nokubura knew that their two nations' homelands were dangerously close to one another, and it only took a mild misunderstanding for one of them to make a mistake which could push their two peoples over the brink, the two realms had to establish relations, positive ones, lest the future contain undesirable consequences for them both.
"President-Cardinal, I am Emperor Oda Nokubura of The Empire of Hiigara, and I would like to first officially commend the actions of your people and thank you personally for the aid we received whilst beseiged by bandits. I travelled here from my land with peaceful purpose, and I would like to beleive that I have found a kindred spirit." Nokubura paused for a moment, hesitating as to whether his next words would be the right ones, "Across the continent, we, as I have no doubt you are too, are discovering new nations, new horizons, populated by strange and diverse cultures, we are entering an age in which our children could grow and prosper in. However, I fear that some may fear that which they do not understand and seek to dominate it rather than accept it." Nokubura saw that the Cardinal was moving to respond, but he swiftly cut him off with a raised hand, "There is one thing that much of these new nations share: young leaders, full of vigour, national pride and ambition, they will undoubtedly drive their nations onwards to glory; unfortunately, you and I both are aware of the flaws of the youth. They may prove to be to ready to resort to conflict and blood for petty squabbles, and we have already seen the start of pointless conflicts! The Empire of the English, far North of here, have been embroiled in a civil war with the Celts, and it is only a matter of time until a regional power seeks to take advantage of the fact!
I do not doubt your pursuit of peace, I have heard many of your great works even if we have never met, but look at yourself and be honest, look at me also, we may be wise and patient, but we are old and nearing the end of our time on this Earth, would our successors be as committed to peace as we?" Nokubura hesitated momentarily once more, thinking of his own heir-to-be, "I will tell you a personal secret Cardinal, an unofficial tale that I have yet to anounce even to my own people: I am preparing to retire from my duties as Emperor. This is a fact, I would rather have an easy handover of power than leave my nation to descend once more into internal conflict after my demise, yet before I do, I want to ensure that my children won't have to learn the horrors of war first hand."

Emperor Nokubura of Hiigara meets with President-Cardinal Thomas Marechal of the Republic of Equas and proposes a lasting peace between the two nations, along with foundations of trade for future co-operation.


Province 94 colonized. Trade begun with the Empire of England in an effort to support the war effort. A further 3 requisition is worth of aid is sent to the Turkmen Federation as part of the alliance between Hiigara and the fledgling nation. Ambassadors sent to the Paris Committee.

Not-So-Random-Event

The Empire of Hiigara – “Patchwork nation”
The Empire of Hiigara, moving from the lands of “Spain” in “Gaul”, it is getting bigger, stronger and greater all the time. While we my revel in our own, personal success Hiigara is not just a nation of Hiigarans, now it has many more nationalities within its borders; From Gauls and Istanbens to Parsans, these people easily outnumber that of our primary cultures. We need to decide now what sort of stance we’re going to take on minorities.


Yoshu heard the tally of votes read out at the Council meeting, it was an overwhelming victory for passing the new legislation, with only a few representatives voting against, if only due to the necessary financing costing their respective provinces. The newly acquired territories would be granted seats on the council of Hiigara proportional to their population, thus allowing them to have a say in how they will be governed, and not feel ostracised in this new society, lest they think themselves occupied rather than having finally found somewhere to belong. Yoshu and Nokubura had talked long and hard on the issue, it was an inevetible occurence if the border of Hiigara continued to expand, and despite the field not yet quite being level, the transition was underway, and Yoshu strongly beleived that given time they could truely become a single nation. As of yet, however, elections would be held far more often in the territories rather than the homelands, and the capitals of Hiigara would be assured a number of seats, regardless, the news was largely taken up by the territories, which would have a real chance to govern themselves, campaigning had already begun in some regions, and a Gaul was being prepared to be sworn in to the Council. Times truly were changing as Hiigara took to the global stage.

Yoshu and the entire audience gave a standing ovation as the orchestra and composer bowed as the last notes of their dramatic piece echoed throughout the hall. The issue of a national anthem was another that Yoshu and Nokubura discussed before the Emperor's depature to Africa, and when the first proposals were put forth, Yoshu had been stunned as his friend refused them constantly, it was only when Nokubura explained that the empire would soon not be the soul dominion of Hiigarans, but rather a 'Patchwork' nation, composed of countless cultures and nationalities. The anthem HAD to reflect this, it couldn't merely be owned by a minority. The end result was perfect, composed jointly by Daitchi Nasamura and Bernward of Gaul, it was a symbol of the connectivity within the new nation, featuring iconic influences from traditional Hiigaran, Istanben, Gaul and Parsen music, even the Illyrian migrants, having arrived from across the sea all those moons ago, were represented. Yoshu felt tears sting his eyes and pull on his heart as the cheer only grew.

Laws past to help incorporate the new cultures into the Empire, and to help them feel equal and capable of playing a role in governance. The anthem and slogan themselves are also intentionally made incorporating traditional themes throughout the cultures which make up the Empire, hopefully helping to create a sense of national unity.

Default Previous Turn

(OOC: I shall write another post for the current turn once Karak has had a chance to update with an NSRE for me :D. Also, is it possible for us to gain requisition via trade? How is that going to work?)

Requisition: 1
Income: 3
Expenses: -4
Total: 0

National Interest

Industry: Upgrade province 98 to Farmland

Military: First Equastrian Infantry

Province 106: Sivernam - Port - COnstruction of a transport fleet begun

Province 107: Elleram - Farmland

Province 105: Wiverna - Farm construction completed

Province 104: Kierra - Farmland

Province 98: Vishua - N/A

Province 99: Kisarm - N/A

Province 109: Sigena - Colonised, the latest province of the Republic of Equas is a dry, arid area, with little life and little potential for it. A few towns are built, but more as waypoints across the desert than for any other reason.

Province 111: Shilema - Under process of colonisation

Military Action

1st United Regiment

The bandits had been quickly eradicated by the time Mathers arrived at the head of the column, the area was yet to be pacified and many of the natives had taken to raiding the local towns and villages. It was partly why the first was here, that and the fact that any combat was good as far as the experience of these youngsters went. They were celebrating as he rode into the circle of wagons and he snapped at the sergeant-major.

"I would like you to remind these young men that this was no battle, this is no great achievement."

They'd done well, but it was true, this was barely a skirmish and the ill-disciplined bandits had been slaughtered. He didn't want his men becoming over confident for such a small reason. He dismounted stiffly, wincing and almost staggering as he landed on the uneven ground, rubbing his leg ruefully. The two apparent leaders of the group that had been attacked walked towards him, covered in blood and dust, and clad in strangely fashioned armour. One of them clearly deferred to the other, and Mathers deduced that this must be the Emperor Nokubura. The man looked ill, he was pale and weak from bloodloss, but he still found the strength to extend a hand of friendship and request medical assistance. Mathers nodded but he knew Captain Gerard had already ordered medics to assist the wounded, the young officer showed initiative and potential.

In fact both men had looked weak, one had, to Mathers' surprise handed him his sword hilt first. Normally a warrior would not hand over his sword unless he was yielding, then Mathers realised he was handing over the command over his men. Before he could refuse the sword however the man collapsed, he dropped his cane and caught him, grunting in pain as he put strain on his leg, before lowering the unconscious warrior gently to the dusty ground. He watched as the Emperor was escorted back to his own bed by his own men.

"Doctor, get them as well as you can to travel, we can offer them more back at Illiam than we can here, they have carriages, we can use them for the wounded, how many do we have?"

"Only a half dozen Colonel, the bandits were in disarray before we even got here according to Captain Gerard, and those are only minor, I have one that has taken a shot to the chest, but that is the worst."

The Colonel nodded, "that'll do, respectfully request that we may billet him in one of the carriages, I'll go back with them and the cavalry, you'll accompany us."

He turned back to the men picking their way through the corpse strewn around the barricades.

"Gerard, you have command here, clear up, find someone who's not too exhausted and find out how they bury their dead, then follow us back with the infantry."

The young captain, his face flushed, and blood on his colour from a shallow cut across his face nodded in affirmation.

"Yes Sir."

Expansion and Diplomacy

Expansion: Colonisation of provinces 111 and 113

Diplomacy:

"At last, an invitation."

The thick roll of parchment was long and interminably worded, but Matthews knew what it meant before he had finished reading. The King, one Donatus Von Blacke had requested the presence of the Equastrian delegation at what he was calling The Round Table Conference. He turned to the messenger, smiling with genuine enthusiasm, "yes of course, I am sorry, please tell your King I would be honoured and delighted to accept his invitation. The Equastrian delegation shall be present at the conference, extending a hearty hand of friendship."

Scouts sent east to the Akkadian Empire, ending at 126, arriving in the Akkadian Empire.


NSRE
Health for the masses?
David Satrina, leader of the newest political party in the republic of Equas has suggested that the cholera epidemic in Kisarm could have been avoided. Two years ago Mr Satrina founded the Equas socialist party, whose ideals stated that we should all work together to create a better nation. One of his newest brainwaves is to form some kind of National Health Service; now, this is an idea never seen before and a lot of the other politicians are a little worried what this might mean for the country. But growing support for the socialists, especially within the poorer areas of the country, has caused this new idea to reach the government. While the idea seems absolutely great the Cardinal will have to play his cards right if he is going to win the next election…

Thomas, a great humanitarian himself, has always looked upon the New Socialist Party with an almost paternal air, but this latest idea actually has some degree of merit. He agrees with the ideas, though he knows many of the landowners may not like it as it is phrased currently. However, the Kierrans, ever bitter at the loss of slavery, may side with him if he argues cleverly, this way, the whole Republic would share the cost of health, but working conditions were still poor in Kierra and ill-health was common, if they didn't have to pay directly for every sick worker then they would probably go for it, and with their support, the rest of the parliamentary opposition would disappear rapidly.

Kingdom of Vendsyssel:


Global event – Europe is alive, with the sound of music.

This turn you lose your colonisation bonus, meaning you can only colonise one province per turn.

Doctor Robert E Lee, an ex-officer of the Floridian Dominion Army turned musician, was sitting as his desk. It had been a week since his article had been featured in the converted newspaper World Affairs, and already progress had been made. Doctor Lee was already famous for his music and art but he had looked upon the nations of the world with disgust, and here was why: He had always said the world’s nations had not true appreciation for music, but now he found a way to fix that. He had told a reporter of World Affairs every nation should have its own national anthem, to help them rediscover music. His idea had now reached Europe, the centre of world power and if he could get them to come up with their own national anthem then the world would surely follow

National Anthem:

Shake it out, from 00.00 to 04.50 (Roughly)

Slogan:
Your goods, our ships, your money becomes our money.

Requisition Subtotal: 0

National Interest:
Province 75: Jylland - Capital, Farmland, Port.
Province 74: Slesvig - Farmland. Location of 1st infantry battalion of the Royal Guard.
Province 71: Prussia - No Upgrades.
Province 72: Hamborg - No Upgrades. Spend 2 Reguisition to create Farmland.

Count Dieter von Helsfron was surveying his lands, as the first in the province, he had started to use the newest knowledge and technology when it came to farming and raising livestock, he had bought lots of land from neighbouring lords and nobles. Land that by many had seem inferior, but with the new knowledge coming from Jylland and Slesvig on farming, could be turned into great farmland, and grazing areas for livestock. It would only take a year or so, before his investments had been paid off, and he truly would become a grain and meat baron in the province. Thou many of the other land owners in the province was starting to invest in there own improvements, Dieter knew that his 3 months headstart, would make him come out ahead.

Province 72: Hamborg, upgrading it to Farmland. Increasing income to 3 Requisition a turn.

Diplomacy and Expansion:

Diplomacy:
King Andrew once again looked out the window towards the road, still awaiting news from the delegation he had sent to the Realm of Izgurka, with the invitation to discuss the situation of the rebels that was hiding in vendsyllian lands, and discussions of how the borders between the nations should be managed, as to avoid any terrible incidents that might arise because of misunderstandings. The latests but still old news from the delegation, was from when they had crossed the border from Prussia into the neighbouring realm. Andrew couldn't decide if he should send some agents ahead, to figure out if something had happened or what had delayed the delegation.

Andrew wasn't worried by the lack of news from the advanced fleets sent ahead of Vice Admirals Alexander Jorgen fleet, they was only meant to advice other nations of what was happening, and that the Kingdom of Vendsyssel wasn't on the road to war. But the invitation to the nations to send delegations to vendsyssel was sincere, official written and signed trade pacts, always enhanced the profit of trade between the nations. Some trade with English wool merchants had been initiated, but official trade pact from the English Emperor would be nice, but he had probably been to busy with his war to have had time to receive the Vendsyllian delegation. (Former Vendsyssel Update to see the details of the trade proposal)

King Andrew decided that he would send some agent's towards the Izgurka realm, in an attempt to track down the progress of the official delegation he had sent months ago.

Diplomacy: Awaiting response from everyone about sending delegations to the Kingdom of Vendsyssel to discuss formal relations, trade, embassies and the future.
Have sent Agents to discover the fate of the delegation sent to Izgurka, if some calamity have descended upon them or if they are simply just delayed.


Expansion:
Some good news had arrived to King Andrews table, Vice Admiral Alexander Jorgen was ready to set sail for Africa with the fleet and the 1st expenditionary battalion. A rather large fleet of merchant and civilian ships filled with colonists had joined to set sail for the african coast. The Vendsysslian institute of science had sponsored a large 3rd rate, ship of the line that was rivalling the size and firepower of Vice Admiral Jorgen's Flagship, thou the crew of the ships wasn't military trained like those of the royal fleet, it was still experienced and hardened sailors, and the ship carries a large delegation of scientists of every branch and enough scientific equipment to supply a small university for a year.

Province 73: Hannover. With many people of the northen part of the region having families in the provinces now under King Andrews rule, they learned of the progress and security those of the Vendsyssel Kingdom enjoyed. Those in the southern part was plagued by rogues, highwaymen and bandits from the mountainous regions to the south. All of this created the flame to start a rebellion against the local tyran, Grand King Robert Hassel Von Hoff, who was more interested in gathering wealth, abuse his power, and send his own thugs into neighbouring regions to pillage, plunder and kidnap young girls for the kings pleasure. Something King Andrew simply could not tolerate for long, it threathened the security of his subjects and the Grand Kings behaviour was against everything holy, rightful and just. King Andrew sent a small army of agents, assasins and experienced free company militias to support the rebellion. Thou the civil war was hard fought, it only lasted a couple of months, with a public execution of the tyran, which tens of thousands witnessed. King Andrew celebrated as the savior of the people and Hannover. A local war hero named Patrick Oberron was declared Grand Duke of Hannover, a man who had the sense to declare loyalty to the Kingdom of Vendsyssel and King Andrew. In return King Andrew sent several advisors and councilors, to help and teach the new Grand Duke how to manage his realm.

Expansion: Settle Province 73: Hannover.


Military and Naval Actions:
1st Vendsyssel expeditionary infantry battalion boards the Vendsyssel transport fleet in the North Sea, (Moved the Fleet from the Gulf of Finland to the Northsea last update, assumes its an oversight that it has not been moved on the map.)

The Transport fleet together with the merchant and civilian ships, collectively nicknamed "ADA", Alexander's Dream of Africa. Set sails towards Africa, ending its movement in the Coast of Portugal, (Straights of Gibraltar, if somehow my count is wrong, not quite sure on the borders between the waterzones)

1st infantry battalion of the Royal Guard marching from Province 74 Slesvig to Province 76 Bremen in ordered ranks and with marching bands and public appearances. Providing ample opportunity for the civillian population to see the professional army of the Kingdom, reassuring the populace that they are secure and well taken care of. But the public appearance and spectacle was mostly staged for the newspapers, local as well as international, to show that the Kingdom of Vendsyssel was a power to be reckoned with.


NSRE:
The Kingdom of Vendsyssel – Colonisation goes wrong!
Disaster! Although the province of Belgien was meant to be peacefully annexed into the country the nation, the Paris Committee, a country they hold common cultural ties was founded and the people of Belgien hesitated. Between the foreign empire and the democracy they hold close ties with, they picked the democracy. After returning from a disrupted mission to colonise the area many of our people were very upset, saying that Soldiers from Paris had barred the way to the province and forced them to leave. However, nobody was hurt. Now we must act, so King, what are your commands?


Jakob Samuelsen had not seen his king so angry before, he had just informed the king of the failed colonisation of Belgien. A new nation which called itself the Paris Committee had risen up to snatch Belgien from the Kingdom, its excuse being something about liberty and freedom of speech. Jakob also knew it was the first major obstacle that had met the king, and he just waited for the king to get over his tantrum, so they could make a new plan for the changed situation. After a while the King sat down behind his office desk, breathing deeply before he spoke, the king had allready made new plans for the region.

"Jakob you are to personally gather and lead a delegation to the Paris Committee. I will send military couriers with orders to General Niels Christian Lunding will direct the Royal Guard to move towars Nederland, where if need be we can launch an invasion into Belgien and Paris. Meet up with the army, and continue with the prestigious 1st company of the Battallion, towards Paris. The Company are probably required to stay at the border, but take a sizeable bodyguard all the way to Paris. So the people and the ministers of the Committee can see for themselves what kind of soldiers they might have to face, if the region does not come to its senses. Now Jakob im not that interested in starting a war, but we can not let the area fall into the hands of the neighbouring powers. Im sure the Paris Committee is wise enough to know that any outstrecthed hand of friendship, is probably just a ruse untill the nation feel ready to annex them. Tell them Jakob that we are not extending a hand in friendship, if they want our friendship they need to provide for it. Offer them to become a protectorate of the Kingdom of Vendsyssel Jakob. It would mean they would keep sovereingty of there own lands, and they can count on our protection against aggressors. They should be aware, and if they are not inform them, that the Empire of England soon will have nowhere to expand but through the committee or through the Empire of Hiigara, they have two battle experienced Battallions which im sure the English are not afraid to use, to secure a wealthy city like Paris. And even thou the Hiigarans are not yet known to have a professional military force, they could quickly recruit a substantial amount of warriors with a certain honour code when it comes to warfare. Our protection ofcourse come at a price, our settlers shall be allowed to move into Belgien as previously arranged, there is plenty of free land for them, they will not take land from any current resident. 2/3 of there taxes will be paid to our state, 1/3 will go to the Paris treasury. We require that the Committee will raise a Artillery Battallion, that are to secure our southeastern border against any English or Hiigaran aggression. We will provide officers to lead the Battallion, that way if the committee decides to go on the offensive, we can remove the experienced leadership from there army. After they have raised the Battallion, some of the regions wealth have to travel into our treasury, something along the lines of 1 point of requisition every 2nd or 3rd turn. On the other hand they are free to expand there sphere of influence into the provinces of 77 and 80, not sure what they call those areas, better research that Jakob before you meet with there representatives. And if they are reluctant, remind them we are in command of two infantery battallions, and even thou one is at sea, it can easily be redirected back to make a invasion into Belgien, and we have the wealth to futher raise army battallions for a war, they do not wish to start. But we need our south eastern border secure and fortified. You Understand me Jakob"

Jakob nodded to his king, "I will carry out your orders my king." Jakob responded.

Send foreign minister Jakob Samuelsen with a delegation and bodyguard from the Royal Guard, to negotiate a pact where the Comittee of Paris become a protectorate of the Kingdom of Vendsyssel.

Diplomacy



Border patrol

The City of Manitia received the Vendsyssel diplomats with respect, a tour of the great city being offered alongside a free meal made by Izgurka's best chef.

But seeing as they wished to get straight down to business, Heffion summoned his advisers to discuss the subject of border protection and what to do if criminals from one country tried to escape to that countries neighbor.

"I say both countries train a group of elite soldiers to guard the borders, and not just our shared borders! I think we should make this standard protocol for all shared borders!" Lord-General Bronsworth advised, it could never hurt to guard one's borders, after all.

Lord Heffion nodded slowly, he had to hear more before he could make a decision.

"Thats all well and good, old man." A feminine voice belonging to one Markia Voiston rang out,"But for any lasting impact we need policies! We need to know exactly what to do when the disgusting filth of society try to hide in the dark corners of another country! I say we establish a policy that states all criminals of Vendsyssel origin are shipped back to where they came from and vice versa for them! That way the respective country gets to deal with their own problem." She explained with practiced ease, no dought she had been preparing for this moment the second she heard the diplomats had arrived.

The crisp and monotone voice of Lord Heffion echoed throughout the room,"Well then, does anyone else have anything to add? Jawsink? Crotex?"

The old scientist shuck his bald head,"No my lord, this falls outside our field of expertise. We are simply here out of courtesy."

"Well then, it is settled, inform the diplomats of our decision, I also wish to know the location of any Izgurken criminals that are in there country. I dought this topic was brought up for no reason."


Result:The western border will be patrolled by specially trained Izgurken soldiers and new policies have been put in place to ensure that criminals from Izgurka that run to Vendsyssel are turned over and vice versa. The location of all Izgurken criminals is also requested.

Tough negotiations

Heffion was sitting at a ancient, Ivory table on the top of his palace across from the English diplomat, who was rambling on and on about the Celtic Union.

But Heffion was hardly paying attention, he could only think about who had tipped them off.

"When I find the traitor that dared betray the trust of Izgurka, they will have to invent a new torture device especially for him!" the dictator thought darkly, he refused to tolerate traitors in his ranks.

Coming back to reality, Heffion noticed that the diplomat had, thankfully, stopped talking, obviously waiting to hear Heffion's response. While he did not hear every small little detail, he got the basic idea: The English Emperor wanted to know why Izgurka was helping the "savages" and "asked" that they removed support from the Celtic Union.

"Not today, my friend." Heffion thought to himself before giving an answer that he was sure would knock the English off their trail, after all, they wouldn't really know if they removed support or not, how could they?

"I understand your Emperor's request and admire the delicate way in which he has handled the situation. I shall remove the small amount of support I have sent to the Celtic Union and I hope we can have better relations in the future." Heffion said with a false smile that could fool most people.

Andapparently the Diplomat was one of those people, as he simply smiled in response,"Thank you! You truly hold wisdom well beyond your years my lord! I hope our kingdoms have more positive relations in the future!"

Heffion's final thoughts before the Diplomat was escorted out by his bodyguards, who either were very well trained in keeping their faces neutral or just didn't care, were along the lines of:

"Just as planned."
Result:Measage sent to England back with it's diplomat saying that Izgurka shall remove support from the Celtic Union and apoligise for the whole situation.But in reality everything shall proceed as planed.

Free-Lance traders.
The feared ruler of Izgurka's criminal underworld, Hennald"Dead-eye" Wankson looked over the docks, his docks.He was overseeing the cannons and guns being loaded upon a small fleet of free-lance trader ships. His boss, Heffion, had paid them a large sum to deliver these unmarked arms and ammo to the Celtic Union. The ships were taking a route that made sure they would not be seen by English navy ships while still allowing them to get to Ireland or wherever the hell they were supposed to go in a timely fashion.

"In the name of Science this is more boring then visiting Manitia!" Hennald complained, he would of been getting drunk with his boys, but he had to make sure they didn't just take off with the money and the Izgurken spies pretending to be crew members got on safely.

Hennald sighed as he saw the first crates were being loaded onto the first ship,"Ahm going to be here a long time....ah need a drink."


Result: Unmarked Izgurken cannons and ammo sent to the Celtic Union through highly paid Free-Lance traders.

Military and Naval

The Green-Glade boys moved to Bludhaven to guard the border from bandits.

The Realm of Izgurka – A land lost in mist

When Caption Hiken arrived in Ireland with a promise of support for the Irish and Scottish People he was met by 10,000 Irish Militia and a lot of mist. Training had been going well, the Irish were a race a hardy people whom had lived their entire lives under the threat of death, and they made excellent candidates. It was an odd sight to behold, a well-dressed officer training a group of barbarians who wore an odd collection of animal fur, kilts and the occasional medieval weapon.
After a day of Training Hiken was summoned to the presence of John McNeil, a withered old Irishman and Conan Gant, a bear-like Scotsman. John McNeil was the closest thing these guys had to a president, he may be old and sick but his people claimed he had “The knowledge of a thousand men” John was accompanied by Conan Gant, who was basically the commander-in-chief of the Celtic armies, he was famed throughout Scotland as a mighty warrior. They made an excellent pair, bringing brains and brawn.

“Caption Hiken” John said “we appreciate your work for us, despite the recent losses in Scotland we hope to us this new army to counter-attack the English and drive them back”

“That is good, I wish you the very best on the battlefield”

“But” he continued “we have something to discuss”
Conan spoke for the first time “We want to know why you’re here”
Hiken gave him a puzzled look.

“We want to know why; a great nation from across the seas would want to help a group of people inferior to themselves”

Hiken opened his mouth to talk, but no words came out. In truth, he did not know, he was just acting on the orders of Heffion. He need an answer quickly;
“we…saw people and danger and decided to help”
John McNeil raised an eyebrow


Caption Hiken was very nervous, who couldn't be after that harrowing meeting? Not a moment after he was allowed to leave he rushed to the large tent he had brought with him from Izgurka and did what any Izgurken would do in his position.

He wrote a letter.

Dear Lord Heffion the Logical

It seems that our Celtic comrades have started to grow suspicious. Their leader, a very wise yet sickly man by the name of John Mcneil has asked me the reason why I was sent to train them. I attempted to give them an answer but I believe I have only made them more suspicious. I request instructions as to what I should tell them.
Here to serve,
Captain Hiken
[/I]

Three days later, while Captain Hiken was training the Celtic troops in first-aid on the battlefield, a little Irish girl ran up to him and handed him a letter, telling him that a ship had arrived at the docks coverd in wierd symbols, and that they gave her a bag of gold coins to deliver the letter to him. Accepting the letter with a smile, Hiken looked over the mysterious envelope.

The letter was the traditional color of Izgurka, a dark green, and had the Atom symbol of the Izgurken government emblazoned upon it's front. Hiken took great care with opening the envelope, it looked expensive and would make a great conversation starter when he hosted a party.

Setting the envelope down on a nearby stump, Hiken took a seat on the ground and started to read the eloquent writing that belonged to his ruler.

Dear Captain Hiken

I received your letter and I must say you made the correct decision, now here is what you must tell them:

"I have been sent by Lord Heffion the Logical to ensure the Celtic Union does not fall to English invaders and grows into a great and respectable nation. I shall not rest until the Celtic troops become a world renowned fighting force and push back the English."

Memorize this to the letter and send me a letter detailing the results.

Also, Cannons and rifles should be on their way to aid the defense of the Celtic Union, I expect you to train them in how to use them when they arrive.

Burn this letter.
Lord Heffion the Logical


Hiken nodded before he began memorizing his lines, tomorrow he would ask for an audience with King Mcneil and see how this turns out.

"Science help me." The captain sighed.

NSRE;
Straightening his uniform and taking a deep breath to quell his shakes Mclanahan stepped out onto the large stage in front of the ever-growing crowd half annoyed feeling as he had been forced to give a speech to avoid a mass panic every other day. Still this moment imp articular was what most would consider thin ice. Panic had started to spread about the Caldari. Now here Mclanahan was acting like the calm collecting leader once again.
“Brothers and sisters of Illyrian I have called you here today to answer some of the many questions you all must have. Firstly I have heard rumours that the Caldari have been sighted and know of our presence.” He paused as he thought threw his words before continuing “I am here to end these rumours. The Caldari Have spotted us and I can only be sure that they know of who we are.” Pausing once again to let his words sink before going on “My comrades there are snakes in our new paradise, I am saddened by this... But. I am not, Scarred. For I know we will survive because we are not some prey. We are a falcon! And we will destroy anything, that DARES! to try and stand against us!” Yelling now he drew himself up as he went on raising his voice more getting a cheering response from his crowd “They can bring what they want but we shan’t simply hold what is our new home but destroy those who come! We have allies in this land! They have an enemy and they haven’t even decided to come! And as of now!” he added while waving a white parchment in the air “we have an Army our first of many to defend for us and destroy for us! We are strong and we will only grow!” He let the cheering die down before he continued in a more quiet calm voice “Brothers, sisters if, no, when they come they will attack us and many of us may well die. But I am ready to make them suffer a thousand times worse. But now I ask you to not fear these vile creatures but continue with your life and be ready for the call to arms and the deaths of hundreds of thousands Caldari.” At hearing this the cheering rose as he left the stage and the workers departed. They will be scarred but they know they are defended hopefully it will be enough Mclanahan thought before entering his carriage.


Diplomacy;
Michal nodded for what must have been the thousandth time as his colleages ran him through his duties and as body guards prepared for possible danger after receiving reports of another foreign leader being caught by raiders. He had been selected to warn the Higarans about the coming Caldari and propose and alliance to protect one another from threats they couldn’t handle alone and to further one another’s power. In truth there had always been good nature between the two small countries due to the Higarans saving the party who discovered the area from a caldari frigate chasing them. Not to mention giving them the charts and knowledge of the area. In honesty they were the main reason that his people had been able to settle in the first place. Now with the Caldari threat it seemed that everyone would have to move quickly to simply stay alive as the door closed behind him and he sat back preparing for what might happen other the next few weeks.


Military;
Rowley laughed in his new bunk with his men as a fight started about a card game was lost. It wasn’t regulation but the men had just came out of training and deserved a drink, so in part to him they got one. Finally he could sleep at night. Soon the dock would be finished but with an army they could defend and stop any attacks.


Summary; due to close panic government could not fund anthem development and instead put ideas on hold ( OOC. will be up for next update) Army is used as symbal to crush panic. All countries warned about Caldari Illdrian war and sighting. Higarans sent alliance and battle plans. Finally Rowley gets a whole force drunk for a night in there desolate camp away from any population centres with his and about every other officers money but ensures all cheques were paid first.
