RP: getting money moving
Seeing an opertunity of Blayredeshia's blight, the econ groups have officially requested to move in:
The Banking Federation wishes to begin loaning out money to all people, by injecting these loans, they hipe that these investments will prove to be highly beneficial to both parties.
The Trade Clans hope to open up new trade routes, build new roads and ports, and begin shipping in cheaper goods for the people to buy, and export their good for far better prices than the major families can afford
The Commerce Guilds wish to open up new farms, mines, power plants, malls, factories, refineries and so forth, they also wish to buy up farms and such already there for a good price.
Techno sector: Just doing what like all tech companies do and selling their products and also buying up factories for their production (OORP: like apple ig)
RP: Limited Investment
Out of all the offers the Blayredeshian Government has only accepted for the Kavastori Trade Clans to set up land trade routes and to import cheaper product product to help stimulate Blayredeshia’s autarky economy by providing more consumer goods. Most other offers have been blocked by the major families who in addition to several monopolies also are directly related to the Imperial House of Krieg. Market competiton is highly expected to occur in the arms industry as many civilians may wish for an alternative to the Breck owned Rey Arms and the Lee owned Suid Rifles for their guns as Kavastori guns when imported to Blayredeshia have been popular. Competition in the auto industry between the Kavastoris and the Breck owned Biaf General Motors and Lee owned Olden Motor Company is also expected although on a smaller scale. Regardless the market competition may be good for the economy. The Trade Clans have been leased several large factories in Blayre von Krieg City, Blayredeshia City, and Olden.
RP: Trade Deal
With the news of Blayredeshian Confederacy halting their naval trade reaching the Schismian markets, nervous investors and businesses have begun to worry that the loss of such a close and instrumental trade partner may cause the Commonwealth's economy to fluctuate enough to spark panic and create even more chaos in the Atomic Schism. As such, several private companies and small business owners located in the Northern Schism have petitioned the government, more specifically Chancellor Rhodes, to negotiate with Blayredeshia in order to prevent yet another potential recession in the nation. Furthermore, in Chancellors Rhodes's interests to remove Kavastori influence from the Commonwealth and lessen their economic hold on the region, Rhodes has proposed to the Blayredeshian that the governments resume naval trading between eachother through the use of the Atomic Schism's Merchant Navy. Chancellor Rhodes remains confident that by doing so, tensions between Basaran and Blayredeshia will remain low, while the Northern Schism and the Blayredeshian ports continue to receive steady imports.
RP: rolling it out
As soon as possible, Trade Clan workers and officials immediately begin to move in, in Trade clan owned factories, the populace of the city are searched through and some are recruited for jobs. Now that there are inroads, the Trade Clans industrial muscles begin to flex and their giant industrial and economic might is shown by the import of cheap but reliable car models, the same goes for arms as the new weapons are flooded into the possible purchase in the markets. The Trade Clans have also brought hundreds of other cheap and reliable goods for all sectors.
Schwypia requests for their ally Basaran to apply additional pressure on Blayredeshia in a gambit to force the final real combatant of the yet-to-be-named war to sue for a peaceful end to the conflict. Schwypia asks the Emperor of Blayredeshia to consider the prosperity of his people and end the war before it engulfs them for avoidable reasons; said blood would be entirely on his hands, they write additionally. Schwypia promises to be kind to their foe in defeat should they call off their attacks and not press serious charges against them, but should they continue to aid the withering Rumanian Monarchist rebels, history will not be kind to the Blayredeshians.

RP: Demitor responds to Blayredeshian Movements
The National Council has officially declared a state of neutrality in all world conflicts for the time being, but prepares and mobilizes its forces to respond to the aggression from one of its neighbors. The 1st and 2nd National Corps, made up of the regular army, has been deployed inside of the Demitorian Border to counter the aggressive moves made by the northwestern neighbor. The National Corps composition is made up of around 100,000 motorized infantry, 150,000 normal rifle infantry, 150 tanks, 30 artillery pieces, and 30 attack helicopters. As well, the National Reserve Corps, using the same composition, has been activated and placed at the rear to respond to any hotspots if potential fighting breaks out. As well, the Conscription Laws of the government have been placed into effect, preparing training centers and ramping up production of supplies should the need arise. The counter the airborne threat, VTOL fighters in small pockets have been deployed to forward bases where they will operate from. They will be supported by 250 regular fighter aircraft supplemented by over 300 reserve fighter aircraft. Even though the reserve aircraft and the VTOL aircraft are inferior to the regular aircraft, they have advantages in number to offset the differences. The Nation Remains on high alert at the ready for any attacks against itself.
RP: Protests Descend Upon Blayredeshian Communities in Carpathia
Pecs, Rumania - Angry mobs descended upon small communities of Blayredeshian expats living in Rumania; most of the expats being volunteers of the Blayredeshian intervention in Carpathia. In Pecs, rioters entered a majority Blayredeshian neighborhood in the city, assaulting residents, as well as burning cars and buildings. The attack directly targeted Blayredeshians and was responsible for the deaths of 13 from mob violence; it took police twelve hours to clear the neighborhood of the rioters, using rubber bullets, tear gas as crowd control. Police forces in the city continue to block off the entrances to the neighborhood as protesters remain behind the roadblocks demanding the Blayredeshian be deported.
RP: Operation Razbunare
Bayala, Rumania - The Grand Battle Fleet with the Amphibious Assault Task Force in tow has left the staging point in Bayala, Southern Rumania leaving for Sea of Trendaline.

RP: Monarchist Forces Surrender; Ferdinand found Dead
Galati, Rumania - Monarchist forces holding out in Galati surrendered to Republican Forces yesterday after NDF divisions captured the Monarchist Command in the Church of St. Stefan. After the capture of their military and national command, the remaining Monarchist forces in the city surrendered to the NDF commander Alexandru Averescu. The NDF was soon faced with a new problem, it now had an additional 50,000 POWs along with the 120,000 it had already captured from Navodari and Gherla, even worse the majority of the Monarchist POWs in Galati were malnourished due to the blockade the city that had been enforced on the city. The NDF opted to set up a large tent city along the banks of the Tepes River, north of Mangalia, until better housing could be found or constructed. During a sweep of the Constantin Prezan Square, the area used as a Command Center by the Monarchists, an NDF battalion discovered the body of Ferdinand, who is believed to have killed himself. The body has been sent to the a medical examiner's office in Bucuresti for a detailed autopsy.
RP: Galati in Ruins
Galati, Rumania - With the liberation of Galati the full damage of the war could be surveyed, the city which was previously home to over 28 million people now only has a population of some 8.5 million, with the majority having fled the city during the initial invasion or later during stalemates between Monarchist and Republican Forces. The refugee crisis caused by the sudden departure of some 18 million people was immense and caused major issues in nearby cities, leading to massive tent cities and a sudden and drastic spike in the number of homeless in neighboring cities. Galati itself was heavily damaged by the months of fighting in it's streets, with estimates of over half million buildings destroyed or facing major damaged in the fighting. The use of artillery by both sides as well as air power by the Republicans contributed the most to this destruction but, later purposeful demolitions of entire city blocks by the Monarchists hoping to slow the NDF also contributed greatly to the destruction. Early reports put the civilian death toll in Galati upward of 200,000; it was known that Monarchist forces were responsible for hundreds of death through suppressive killings meant to prevent opposition by locals in addition to the use of forced conscripts to refill the monarchist ranks. Rumanian authorities have refused to allow former residents to return to the city, deeming much of it unsafe, however the remaining 8.5 million residents are permitted to stay. The fighting has caused major structural damage to many buildings making them unsafe for occupation while bombing also kicked up dangerous amounts of dust particles, much of which contains high amounts of asbestos and other dangerous toxin like Formaldehyde, materials which were common in buildings when much of the outer-city was built. In addition to the toxic dust, gas leaks provide another issue to deal with this authorities entirely cutoff the gaslines, stopping all heating in the city, leaving those who remain living through the rest of February and potentially early spring without heat. The NDF has occupied the city, which is currently under martial law and a 7pm-6am curfew, all supplies including food and drinking water must be brought into the city through military supply convoys due to the destruction of city infrastructure. The military has successfully restored power to much of the city, fortunately.
RP: Coming to a Close
With the Monarchists beaten in the Rumanian States, Schwypia celebrates another victory in the war. What was once projected to be a long and grueling endeavor has proven to be swift and decisive. Of the 23,400 soldiers stationed in Rumania, 192 died and around 500 were wounded. The remnant of the original 3,000 marines will remain in the country, as well as an additional 6,000 soldiers to help the devastated city of Galati recover and keep peace, while the remainder of the forces will be sent elsewhere. The 400 or so private security hired from Gallowglass LLC. will continue their duties of protecting Schwypian assets in Rumania until those assets can be restaffed with professional soldiers. Furthermore, seeing as Blayredeshia is the sole remaining combatant in the war, Schwypia's high command has given the navy the go-ahead to begin preparations for an Accord-sponsored blockade on the nation and preparations for a full-scale assault. 250 Schwypian warships from around the globe will rendezvous with the Basarani fleet to strengthen the pressure on Blayredeshia. Having implemented a greater conscription draft for the military, Schwypia has mustered two full field armies, counting in at 400,000 total soldiers, for an invasion of Blayredeshia should they not surrender within a few months. The operation is to be named Neptune's Pride.
RP: We'll come
Admirala Feylani will attend these talks. Strange, she seems to be spending as much time away from DL4 as possible
RP: Preparations for Operation Neptune's Pride
With the threat of full scale war increasing day by day, the BMS has begun making preparations for the planned invasion of Blayredeshian territory. Of the some million volunteers within the Basar Military service, nearly a hundred thousand infantry are being allocated for the initial stages of the invasion. Landing craft and convoy ships are being outfitted to maximize carrying capacity and defenses. The naval presence in the Sea of Trendaline takes form as Basar Ships group up into small task forces. The use of smaller groups enables clusters of faster destroyers to intercept and block the path of incoming trade.
RP: A Letter to the Schism
The Atomic Schism
It has come to the attention of the Federal Government of Basaran that the Schism is attempting to pursue naval trade to Blayredeshia despite the blockades in place. This a formal letter to demand that the Government of the Schism Cease and Desist all trade and travel with Blayredeshia. To continue this endeavor is bring war to your borders and a quickly mounting cost in supplies and lives. I hope that our past agreements will sway you from walking this razor's edge.

RP: Final Warning
This is a final letter of warning to Emperor Blayre III. In accordance with actions taken down in Rumanian States, a full unconditional surrender is required from you and your government. Failure to comply with this demand will result in a Formal Declaration of War from the Federation of Basaran and her allies in the Accord.
Office of the President
Guns fire, Missiles rain, people scream. All around the base, men and women are dying. And for what? For a shred of glory from a fading empire, to be written in history? No, this can’t be right. The lies and deceptions, can’t be real. The stories of long forgotten gods and ancient legends, could they be real? It certainly seems so. Fire, smoke, metal, earth and more cloud the air, turning the once green fields into nothing more than mud. And then black, lying over red, blue, green, brown. Covering all, shadowing all. This can’t be real. It must be a dream, can’t be truth. Must be a lie, can’t be life.

From the ashes, rises a phoenix.

On the 10th February 2103, the city of Pajana, or rather the outlying suburbs, saw some of the harshest fighting in Liranaholm since the Reunification War. Soldiers under command of Lieutenant-General Radoslav Vasilev and Major Vano Galuev rose up against forces in the city, as a bomb exploded in the office of the Grand Admiral. Unbeknownst to any of the perpetrators, the Admiral was in Avallon at the time, and as such the office was empty. Major perpetrators have been arrested, and shall be tried in a court of law on the 8th April. Major Galuev has fled the country, and requests asylum in Luwuia. He claims to have with him important documents, vital to the Lirana military. He also offers money, in return for allowance to live a safe life, unbothered by Lirana or Luwuian governmental requests
RP: Standstill (Secret)
Floods, erosion, poverty, hunger.
The crises that plagued Antenesia weighed heavy on the chief, all-encompassing as the blanket of humidity that smothered the islands of Paraba Atoll.
As he walked home that day, an hour's stroll through the amber rays of early evening, his thoughts swarmed, buzzing about his brain in frenetic rage. They encapsulated him with a destructive engrossment, muffling the sounds of the neighborhood he walked through, as densely packed as all the others in Lahonas.
He brooded. Brooded over the isolationism, the state of the mainland, the obstinacy of his colleagues. Above all, though, he brooded about the gridlock.
For years, it had played out the same. A disaster happens. The Lower Council votes (overwhelmingly) to begin reopening the country so they can finally get the aid and resources the nation needs. The bill makes it to the Upper Council...
...and the chiefs vote it down.
The reason was as frustrating as it was straightforward. The Lower Council's proportional, its representatives spread evenly amongst the country's population, almost half of whom live in Lahonas, and yet more on the other densely populated islands.
The Upper Council, on the other hand, is apportioned equally among the inhabited islands. Lahonas, with its tens of thousands, gets one chief. Oumatan, with its 176, gets one chief.
He didn't have the patience or interest to ponder how the decision came about, only the consequences. Less than a tenth of the population - the people on the far flung atolls, the ones with the most land, the most resources per person, the ones least at risk to the plights of the nation - control the majority of the Upper Council's seats. They have the say in what gets passed, and the country only opens when they want it to.
And why would they want it to? Why would they, on their island paradises, with their abundant fisheries and groundwater, their acres of land, want to risk exploitation by all the powers that be - powers that, mind you, seem to go to war over the drop of a pin? Their distrust of the Odrelans was as infuriating as it was sound. Who's to say, given the chance, they won't exploit us? It certainly wouldn't be that hard for them, at least until the mainland gets their act together, and who knows when that'll be?
Still, he hated the narrow-mindedness of it. If only he could just find a way to convince them, to show them-
Panicked, he lifted his sandaled foot off the thing he'd just squashed. Crouching down to examine the remains, he scanned it for a moment, then breathed a sigh of relief.
It was just a beaten up container. Nothing was dead. Everything was alright.
Finally freed from his thoughts, he took the time to scan his surroundings.
He stood before a bridge; the one that connected the main island, with the Council Building, to the smaller island to the west, with the atoll's port - and his home on Paraba.
His location surprised him. The bridge was a ways from the council building, roughly the halfway point on the path to his place. Had he really been walking for that long?
Continuing, he paused as he reached the middle, staring at the calm teal waters of the shallow channel below. He stood there for a bit, watching the surface dance with the humid air's breeze. a few moments passed, maybe minutes. He wasn't counting, just staring.
After a while, he parted his gaze from the salty water. While the view was lovely, he had plans to make, and daylight would soon be fading. After a final few seconds of admiring the scenery around him, he looked on towards his home,
and moved forward.
RP: Deaf Ears
The threat issued by the Basaran Federation has been rejected by the Chancellor Rhodes of the Atomic Schism, who has refused to respond to the President Winston through any means of communication. Furthermore, the increased military presence in the Sea of Trendaline has given Chancellor Rhodes enough leverage to convince the Commonwealth's Parliament to order the beginning of new ship production in the port city of Embark. Meanwhile, the Atomic Schism's navy has been placed on high alert, with all 10 of the Commonwealth's destroyers being sent to patrol the immediate bay surrounding Hymn Island. Once more, Rhodes has also begun to reorganize the positions of soldiers in the Commonwealth as well, sending many of the stationed troops in the Borderlands to the coastal regions of the Northern Schism. 4 battalions of roughly 1000 soldiers each now stand stationed in forts outside Peninsulatown, Curvyville, Embark, and Fish City. 1 battalion of 500 has also been sent to Pontifey on Hymn Island, though the lack of major infrastructure has forced the soldiers there to seek shelter with local residents.
RP: Ending Hostilities
The Confederacy has officially announced an end to aggressive measures in the Rumanian States and has blamed the now deceased Ferdinand for his inability to make major enough gains against the Republicans. As a result the Confederacy has officially recognized the Republic of Rumania as the legitimate government. Rumors persist that agents of the Confederate Intelligence Service have attempted to or already have smuggled small arms into the Magyar Republic for Blayredeshian immigrants to arm themselves although no evidence of this exists as of now and the Imperial Ministry of State has stated it is open to having the immigrants and their families deported back to Blayredeshia.
RP: Yes and No
The issue the Confederacy and its Emperor takes with your demands is that they are unrealistic and unreasonable. No state of war exists between the Confederacy or any nations of the Accord. We have ceased all actions against the Rumanians and have admitted the defeat of our intervention on behalf of lack luster allies. We will however not be unconditionally surrendering to anyone seeing as how no state of war exists between our nations or any of your allies. In your hands not ours, lies the momentous issue of war. The Confederacy shall not assail you. You can have no conflict without being yourselves the agressors. You have no oath registered in heaven to destroy our way of life while we shall have the most solemn one to “defend our homes”.
Let the die be cast,
Amelia Botha, Imperial Minister of State.”

RP || Further funding for the Warpriest
Many innovations and design changes had come out of the ongoing ['Warpriest'] project. To the delight of many tank commanders, the 20mm roof-mounted canon had been deleted and replaced with a modular system known as CROWS.
CROWS, or Commander's Remotely Operated Weapon Station, is one of many features in the new revised A2. Being a completely modular system, it is able to accept weapons from 14.5mm machineguns to 40mm automatic grenade launchers. It also features the full array of electronics and sensors the gunner's sight has while also being dual-axis stabilized.
The commander's hatch had also been revised, now featuring a lower and more ergonomic design. Much of the interior has also been altered, allowing the rear to accomodate two more dismounts or supplies. Due to requests, the rear now features a toilet and boiling vessel as permanent additions to the vehicle. A final addition to the vehicle will be the UAV station for recon duties.
As the project has gathered positive attention from the troops in the field, it has been decided that further funding will be allocated to the project to iron out other possible issues with the design.

RP: Addressing a Nation
Looking out over the capital city of Urbs it's almost hard to believe that many of her great skyscrapers and Stone government buildings once weren't there. In fact only a year ago this city was completely different. The revolution left many of Enmarrs' proud cities broken and wounded, her people cold and hungry. But looking at the city you can no longer see these wounds and her people no longer go hungry. The revolution was a year ago, and now the party is dedicated to rebuilding what was lost and improving what was left. The streets are bustling with cars and people all trying to go about there day to day lives, almost forgetting what things were like a year ago. The new government was quick to establish itself constructing offices and assigning officials to bureaus and companies.

The kingdom has increased products to be shipped to Blayredeshia, four times compared to the country's previous export volume. Products such as textiles, steel, glassware, and processed meats, are just some of the products that increased in volume. The Ministry of Agriculture sent 100 tonnes of organic fertilizer to help farmers affected by the new policy implemented Blayredeshia.
