RP: (Secret) Short but informative
With a quick meeting wrapped up with the Resistance, agreements were made. The Republic begins slowly sending supply drops to dedicated areas in top secrecy. These supplies are being sent in cargo planes masked so they can avoid radar and are unmarked...supplies include weapons, ammunition, shells, mortars, jeeps, and even a light Lycan-1 tank but fairly rare. A good chunk of the supplies is not specifically marked as Republican as well to be more secrecy. Pilots are required to identify themselves to the Resistance as Wolfinite, which isn't really hard if you're Wolfinite.
Icewindian Airforce begins to move in to attack Cargo Planes flying over there airspace. SAMsystems near towns open up on Cargo Planes. With no mercy shown.
However they cant get all of them with some Cargo Planes able to get into Wooded Countryside where Resistence picks it up.
Wolfinite Pilots inside of Icewindia are being arrested just on suspicion of being connected without evidence. Shogunate asks Werewolf Islands to stop dropping supplies over Icewindia.
Brave Wolfinite Resistance members at night time shine flashlights in countryside to help guide in supplies in areas away from SAM or AA defenses.
RP: Lycannists being removed
In reaction to resistance and arming growing. All Wolfinites are getting a Number Tattoed to there head. Fur Being permantly burned off. Suspected Lycannists are being rounded up in Trains to head eastwards to Mountain Work Camps for Re-education.
All Civilian Wolfinites are slowly being re-located to to Internment Camps where they will build there own communities and be under 24/7 Surveillance. Exception to this is New Wolfy where Wolfinites are being walled into zones and Icewindian Settlers continue to take up the best buildings. Its only getting worse for Wolfinites. Rebellion in New Wolfy Gheto is going to begin soon.
RP || A request for an improvement
- Troops in the field had mixed feelings over certain aspects of the newly acquired M8A2's in service. Though much of the vehicle had improved, certain features were considered a step back in the upgrade. For instance, tank commanders had complained on the newly implemented cupola. It has been stated that it is far too high on the turret and could be lowered down further to improve comfort when utilizing the vision ports. The roof-mounted 20mm cannon had also brought controversy, with its overall effectiveness against infantry targets within 300m being brought into question due to its limited elevation range. There were also issues regarding its low mounting, with certain commanders complaining on accidentally being hit in the head while moving the cannon around while they had their heads out of the hatch.
Due to these underlying issues, the Artaecusian Government has allocated funds to a project to reform the M8A2 into an improved variant. Both troops on the field and Artaecusian Defense Industries will work together with the given funds, the project has been given the name ['Warpriest'].
RP || Musuem pieces
- Over the years, the Artaecusian Government had been stockpiling prototypes of military vehicles for their historical value. With a recent decision to declassify them officially to the public, it has been decided that all the stored prototypes will be moved into the Tau Volantis Tank Musuem collection for the public to see. Included in the coming collection will be the XM-8, the very first prototype of the M8 Palisade.
RP: Genetically Modified Humans
The Luwuian Government is starting a research program with a budget of 5 Billion Federation Credits. The Program is hoping to achieve genetically modified humans with animal ears and tails. The Program if successful is expected to finish in 40-50 years or less if the budget gets increased in the next fiscal year.

RP: I will slap you
As the Republic's citizens are getting more annoyed at things lately, a few protests in the streets have started due to this. Many Doge Land City roads have been blocked, but they are not causing damage as it is just a peaceful protest.
As it spread, though, there were hundreds of protests across Doge Land. To calm these people down, the Republic denounced Luwuia for this action.
The Lirana fleets, some 400 ships previously based in the Bay of Pontricare move up to meet with the Basars in the Sea of Trendaline, as

The 30th LoN Election is now Underway.
OORP: For additional info on what the LoN is if you aren't aware check the pinned factbook on the region board. Should be the fifth one from the top. Telegram me if you have any other questions.
With the Blayredeshian tensions rising, more so following their aerial raid on Rumanian States, President Oscar Winston with military high command, have begun rearmaments of the BNS including the reactivation of dozens of ships currently lying in storage in various Basar drydocks and naval warehouses. This comes from the order of 1202 which gave the command to rearm 202 ships over the course of the next two years. Priority has been set to smaller and lighter vessels like destroyers and light cruisers.
Basaran Enters Partial Mobilization
Additionally to the boost in naval presence, the Federation of Basaran has entered a state of partial mobilization in which all active members have had all vacation time cancelled for the foreseeable future. Well over a hundred military bases have come to life over the past month in response to the Blayredeshian crisis in the Trendaline sea. Hundreds of military aircraft have taken up patrol routes along the coastline of the home island. A hundred new military contracts have been posted for the arms industrial base to bask in including mass production of small arms, explosive payloads and several vehicular orders including 500 more FC 102 strato bombers, 350 Falcon Helicopters and 750 King Ravens (scram variant included).
RP: Exercise Watchful Eagle Concluded
The Watchful Eagle Special Forces exercise has concluded with Luwuian SF in First place, Kavastor in second and Great Eastern Esta in third. All SF Units did a fine job during the exercise and are now allowed to go to their home country.
After the recent meeting with a strange peoples calling themselves the ‘Avallonians’, Admiral Lilliana Feylani aboard the Carrier LSC Dawnguard, of the 2nd Carrier Strike group, has left the Nation temporarily to conduct talks with this nation they have met. Aboard the ships are both sailors and military personnel, including the 3rd Marine Division, a well trained group of soldiers specialising in Warfare in Rainforests and Shallow Water areas like beaches or mangroves. While not as well trained as the insertion groups specifically trained in combat along one specific biome, this group is still more than able to carry out operations in their chosen field.
The heavy Security is due to threats of possible attack on the Admirals convoy, and is not intended to be used violently
RP: Return of Seaplanes
While the concept of boat planes had long since died off, the idea of such a vessel being luxurious never did. Very few people are willing to put in the money and effort into reviving the long lost luxury of boatplanes as many people don't fly for the sake of flying or sail for the sake of being at sea. Every mode of transport isn't luxurious either and much of it has been retrofitted for the sole purpose of travel between point A and point B. Many modern cars take on sleek, aerodynamic and fuel efficient designs instead of being the centerpiece of fashion. for the past century, Basaran has been all about function over fashion.
Until now. One man, 62 year old Tai Calypso, former head of Airport Operations in Jacinto INTL, has taken upon himself to reboot the idea of luxury using his retirement and a small loan from the banks. He created his own company under the name of "Skyward Yachts". The first boat-plane in nearly 200 years of Basar history returns with modern designs including 2 large turbofan engines, 2 story hydroplane which is set up like a miniaturized luxury hotel complete with a full electric system, kitchens and the likes. However, the concept of luxury returns to mind as the average ticket cost for such a ride is nearing a thousand Tiber Coins. These rides, rather than being from point A to point B, although he said he may allow that should the initial runs prove profitable, circle the Basar home island and will consist of several water take offs and landings. However, with tensions from the Blayredeshian Crisis in the Trendaline Sea, his flight routes have been altered to avoid getting near the potential warzone.
RP:Investigation After careful investigation we found that there was a very small chance that the training held by Luwuia was riged.
OOC: Probably not I sent my jungle and forest Specialist to mountains which probably isn't the best environment for them.
RP - Meeting With the Lirana
The nation makes preparations to greet the Lirana into Avallon. The meeting will take place in the Risen City, the second largest of the cities within Avallon and renamed due to the entire populace being saved by God and lifted into God's Kingdom. The now empty streets eliminate any possibility of violence, perfect for this diplomatic meeting to take place.
Jonas, along with his people, hope to secure relations in the hopes that they can be equipped and prepared for the Second Coming, whenever that may be as well as building Avallon into a better nation that provides opportunity for all (especially to achieve the Three Principles so encouraged by the government) and maintaining the level of freedom that Avallonians have, without being unjustly occupied by another nation. Most in Avallon have come to realise that relations with other species is one that is positive and encouraged by their faith and seem to accept the presence of other species on Kalrania.
RP: Reru Tanda Centennial Anniversary Coming Up
Reru Tanda turns 100 soon, and the citizens are excited for the occasion.

RP: 1st SMU-A Raids Domestic Terrorist
On December 30th, 2102 The 1st Special Mission Unit Alpha raided a Large Domestic Terrorist compound. The Operation has been declassified to raise morale and patriotism in Luwuia. Approximately 20 Operators were involved with no friendly deaths or injuries. A Large Compound in the Luwuian Mountains which took up 5 acres of land was spotted during the month-long SF Exercise by a recon UAV that was put under surveillance by the Military Intelligence Agency. The raid started at 0400 and ended at 0600 with 60 Terrorists killed and 10 Captured. Investigators found numerous plans with one in particular of great interest. The domestic terrorist were planning to attack the Capitol building and the royal palace at the same time. By the looks of it the plan seemed to be plotted out very well and had a high chance of succeeding. The Government was alerted to the plot and is now taking steps to increase security so it is more effective.
RP: Redeploying Soldiers
With the Icewindians subdued for now, Schwypia has decided to relocate some of its forces. 100,000 of Schwypia's troops deployed in the Archron Empire will be sent home, leaving 120,000 along the Icewindian-Archian border. Furthermore, 10,000 of those soldiers will be sent to the Rumanian States to reinforce the Schwypian marines there. Over in Rumania, 188 of the 13,000 marines have perished in the fighting, and 412 more have been wounded. Along with the new 10,000 soldiers, 400 mercenaries from the Schwypian PMC Gallowglass LLC. have been hired to help protect Schwypian military bases and assets in the region, and also to test a new weapon. It is unknown if the Schwypian government is providing this new weapon to Gallowglass or if it is one they made on their own...
RP: Bad Relations
Due to Dwarf Land4 not releasing Luwuian Assets in the country the Government will be putting a Trade Embargo on the country and Disallowing business that have below 100 Million in revenue from operating in the country. Luwuia hopes Dwarf will make the smart decision and smooth relations with Luwuia.
RP: Secure Border
Recently the Blayredeshian 3rd and 5th Armies have recently repositioned themselves in eastern Blayredeshia 8 miles north-west of their border with Demitor. The 3rd Army under Brigadier General Edward Klan consists of 76,000 infantry, 120 tanks, 18 artillery pieces, and 170 APCs and it is the second smallest army in Blayredeshia. The 5th Army consists of 200,000 infantry, 190 tanks, 20 artillery pieces, and 175 APCs and is under the command of Major General George Lee. 500 Fighter planes have also reportedly been transported to Fort Suid which lies in the midwest of Blayredeshia’s provinces.
RP: Limited Autarky
In order to difuse tensions with nations such as Basaran; the Confederacy has halted naval trade in order to attempt to provide the Basar’s with less means of instigating conflict. The Confederacy’s main source of imported goods now only comes from the nations of Ponticianre, Kavastor, and Koysala who the Confederacy has requested only ship goods to Blayredeshia via land routes across the continent. This form of limited trade and autarky has not come without costs. Major industries all over Blayredeshia have instantly felt the immense sting and now farmers across rural Blayredeshia are being subsidized by the Blayredeshian treasury to produce more wheat and corn instead of the cashcrops more commonly grown throughout the Confederacy such as cotton and tobacco. Many wonder how long this will last although it could be prolonged via bailouts from the rich landowners and businessmen who have monopolized Blayredeshia’s market such as the Brecks and Lees but even then such an act could only last so long. Only the future will show if the land trade networks between the Blayredeshians and their previously mentioned allies will be able to sustain this limited form of autarky.
The Fleets combine
The First and Second Fleets have combined near the mouth of the Bay of Pontricare. Grand Admiral de la Croix has expressed a desire to blockade the bay however General in Chief Cleburne Bell and the Emperor advised against it instead ordering the Grand Admiral to perform a defensive blockade of Blayredeshia in addition to the coastal artillery and sea batteries being set up along the coast.
RP: The Prophet, Rejected
Schueiold, the harbinger of the new sect of the Shangralorian Faith, in his efforts to promote his revelations, traveled to the Province of Gruven, where large concentrations of Shangralorian faithful reside in the frozen marsh. Though his first experiences with the local populace were well received in Gatoe and it's outlying area--with most of the city's population accepting baptism and conversion, the further the Prophet traveled the more he was harassed and sparked violent debate. In the Province's capital, Republica, Schueiold came under assault from a gathering of Shangralorian faithful after he reportedly commanded them to, ironically, "lay down their weapons of hate." Weapons which were then used to assault him violently. It was only after nearby followers of his cause counterattacked was Schueiold able to retreat to safety. However, as the Prophet retreated, larger crowds were attracted to the commotion and large scale fighting broke out between the followers of the new and old sects. Fortunately, police forces were called to the scene and dispersed the crowds. Despite the chaos, there were few majorly injured, with only one requiring immediate medical attention after an onlooking bystander was his on the head with a bike lock.
RP: Queen Flair Speaks
With mounting reports of violence occurring across the nation and Chancellor Rhodes seemingly unwilling to take any major action against the rising tensions, Queen Flair Ts'dale of The Atomic Schism publicly addressed the nation on the protest box outside the Royal Homestead. Such usage of the protest box had not been seen since the time of King Hymn I, who used it to resign temporarily, and thus the Queen's appearance startled the on-edge populace. However, the Queen did not resign, instead apologizing personally to the citizens of the Commonwealth for the government's inaction. However, the Queen also accused the Church of Shangralore for the disruption of peace in allowing the violence to have begun in the first place. Furthermore, Queen Flair condemned the bombing of the Church in Deseast and offered the families effected her condolences. . .
". . .but my words mean nothing if we do not push aside our differences and accept what makes us all unique in the eyes of God, Shangralore, Acheinseolv, or Acheipps. We cannot forget it was the refusal to cooperate with one another that led to 12 Year Strife and we should be determined to never let our children or their children to go through an era where families are divided by invisible borders in the same nation. . ."
After roughly ten minutes of speaking, Queen Flair finished her address and entered the Royal Homestead. While her speech resonated with many who lived through the 12 Year Strife, the younger generations were reportedly largely unmoved, with one teenager stating in a interview with the 'Electron Times', "It all just sounded like fake government bullcrap. . ." Nevertheless, the Queen's dismay at the government's reaction to the mounting violence has sparked a reaction from Chancellor Rhodes, who in the wake of the address has requested the dispatch of even more military forces to major cities across the Commonwealth, specifically the capitals of the Provinces excluding Strontiumopolis. The move has outraged the residents of the cities, with many blocking the roads in protest so the soldiers transport's cannot proceed. Unfortunately, the body blocking protests have largely failed, save for one in Bunker City, where the convoy of soldiers decided to just stop where they were and patrol the suburbs.
