RP: Possible Invasion
The Empire of Moonflower has been amassing troops on its northern border in what looks like a military buildup to annex the territory north of the nation. Empress Sparkling Snow has made remarks about how this land is the rightful land of the Empire of Moonflower. This being possibly the first war the new Empire of Moonflower is in the world awaits the outcome of this crisis. This is also a great test for the new Imperial Army as it employs advanced tactics such as paratroopers.
RP: Spreading Democracy
The Republic wishes for Pancoa to halt these acts and for it to establish a more democratic government, though the royalty may keep their democracy. We also ask for the protesters to respect the Ancient Pancoan sites, to preserve the culture, and to possibly use the sites for tourism. We also ask for formal relations as well.
We ask of North Hyechon to stop the invasion of South hyechon. If these acts continue to happen, we will fund a democratic pro-socialist government in the nation. If the ultimatum is not complied, we will create a rebellion in the area.
RP: Our Condolences
Seeing the poor state Emperor Blayre is in in Blayredeshia, the Schwypian royal family extends their condolences to the family of the Emperor. They offer their support to the imperial family in these trying times. This move seems to break past tensions between the two countries after the Blayredeshian and Schwypian governments made amends.
RP: Second Evven-Schismian Meeting Meets Expectations The Atomic Schism
Following a rather short (yet rather explosive) meeting between the new leaderships of the Schismian Empire and the Kingdom of Sol, and East Evven king Satyrn DeVallier, absolutely no problems concerning Evven-Schismian relations were solved. If anything, an argument held by the two Solist leaders further deepened rifts between the Schismian and Evven Solist communities, with Solar King Ddę'Weaoleier viciously attacking Evven Solism's "[locking of heavens' gates] with a key of gold."
Evven King Satyrn DeVallier has since said nothing on the issue; according to East Evven press, he has retreated into the recesses of his palace for a period of meditation.
RP: Mobilization Nation
Supplies Began Being Stockpiled in the Warehouses of Tavi Harbor as Government Incentives Encouraged Corparations to Send Non-Perishable Food items, Bottled Water, Clothing, and Tents for Refugees to the Ports of Pancoa. In addition the Imperial Army of Amaabj Began to Mobilize and Scout out the Raider Camps to the North. Aerial Reconnaissance Drones were Also Launced from Airbases Around the Imperial Confederacy to Comb the Main Island of Pancoa for the Aforementioned Raider Camps that Harassed Pancoa. The Plan to Stabilize that Country is to
A. Knock out the Raiders to Free the Pancoan Millitary to Supress the Riots
B. Send Humanitarian Aid to Try to Let the Riots Suppress Themselves and Peacfully Resolve them before the Pancoan Millitary Has to Resort to Force.
As Such for the Best Results the Humanitarian Aid Had to Arrive Sooner than Later and As such it was Given Transportational Priority.
RP: The New Constitution
After the Nationalist victory in the Civil War, Samilo Ezrael and 3 other higher ups in the Nationalist movement abolished the First Republic of Windardia by signing the Constitution of the Second Republic, which was written by a Nationalist think tank. With the blueprints for a new government established, the election for the new president is set to begin September 2145 and to end in November. Multiple political parties have already been founded, with the most prominent being the Civic Nationalist Party of Windardia and the Elvish Unionist Party. Hero of the Civil War Atric Lezel has hinted he may run in the upcoming election as either an independent or as a member of a new party. It is almost certain that Samilo Ezrael will run, but he has yet to select a party to run for. A new wave of optimism has washed over Windardia as 87% people of the nation in a recent poll are confident in the Nationalists' ability to govern the nation.
It was Han Lee and Ju-Tang's understanding that the regime needed to change. They both did their part in preparation for Operation Busan. As pro-Jucheist guerrillas raged in rural territories, the urban center was rife with conflict and political dissent. At this point, an invasion from the North was imminent, so the current southern government was ready to 'talk'. The current leader and their cabinet decided to hold a press conference with the icewindians and their supporters to debate a solution going forward.
They were so cocky about their own success, they were lax on the security. Little did they know what as about to happen.
RP: Plausible Deniability
The People's Republic of Hyechon is appalled at the statements made by Kynthes. The North denies any invasion of the South, citing all pro-Juche activities are undertaken by southern insurgents. To sweeten the deal, a complete list of every human rights violation committed by South Hyechon from its foundation until now- down to the local level- would be sent to the current embassy. The nation is warned that its ultimatum of regime change is an act of war, and relations have been broken down completely. For even insiniuating such a threat, all officials of Kynthes currently stationed in North Hyechon have been given 48 hours to leave. Any support for the state from media outlets have been publicly reversed, and the nation called a 'group of counter-revolutionary scheming social-imperialists'. Not like they could even breach the country anyways.
RP : Another monarchy?
Seibalath offers to establish a formal diplomatic agreement in order to facilitate trade between the Republic and Asukiro. The Republic's agricultural sector can supply thousand metric tons of rice or other food products with low costs provided tariffs do not bump the price higher.
The prince is welcomed warmly in Etrius at the shared border in the Republic of Khallad. The terms of free trade and travel are readily accepted, with a counter offer as well for joint military exercises in the mountains that they share to further build relations
Chairman Alkh'en is greeted by Trade Minister Al-Farsi to discuss what each side has to gain via trade. Etrius offers its full range of natural resources and manufactured goods as well as services to the newest potential economic partner.
- Agricultural exports (meats, grains and fruits)
- Industrial metals (iron, steel, copper, aluminum, lead and tin)
- Clean burning oil alternatives
- Military exports of all kinds (from bullets to frigates)
- Manufacturing services
- Economic/Infrastructure development services
Also raised, is what Seibalath would like to offer in return
Kowenian specialists are more than welcome to come and tour the most resilient and efficient power grid in the federation, that which provides for the capital and not only the vast majority of the Republic of Kiros, but also the fringe of the other three constituent republics as well. The lead engineer within the Department of infrastructure under the Ministry of labor will be available to tour the guests himself to thoroughly explain the system. If the grid is up to their standards, it may be possible to send Etrian specialists back to Kowen to aid in the development of their own grid
A delegation from one of the world's most vocal leftist regimes is invited to discuss the possibility of opening diplomatic relations and to gauge the benefits of working closely in the future. Lord Attar would meet with the delegation himself in Kiros if accepted
RP: Continuing the Eastern Friendship Policy
As Schwypia continues to bolster her stance with the nations of Eastern Kalrania, Schwypia turns to her south to the nation of Kynthes. Despite sharing a small border with the nation, Schwypia's diplomatic ties with Kynthes are scant. Schwypia wishes to rectify this and dispatches an envoy to the nation, should they choose to accept. Hopefully Kynthes will say yes and further diplomacy will present itself.
RP: Operation Busan in Effect.
King Regent Wallace and Marshall Hemlock were at the site to shake hands and say the diplomatic speel to stall the open talk for the Sniper to make his move.... if the Sniper did not make his move then Hemlock had a pistol ready to... Take matters in his own hands just encase. King Regent Wallace brought over 40 Imperial Marines to show off however they were very well trained for security. The Bayonets on there Assault Rifles were not for show either as they were ready to begin clearing the Security if things went wrong.
Meanwhile Icewindian fleet had split in two with Princess-Admiral Catherine guiding in the ships and Jet Fighters from the Carrier decks to head to shore. The 14,000 Marines were split into two teams with 7,000 each head to two major ports in Naval Landing Craft to secure Ports forcefully or hopefully... welcomed by Coup Members. As the plan was to flood the country with Icewindian Army to bring "Order and Stability".
Icewindia can only hold its breath to see if Coup Members succeed in quick transition of power or not.
Its been an Extreme Economic Burden to keep Coal Running Ships going this long. However surrounded by enemies the Empire deems the fleet Essential.

RP: The Soviets Grow.
From 40 Party members grows into 245 Strong with first Red Army in Exile to show up. They expect in a few years the numbers to grow over 1,000 and continue to grow. Leon Tanz has reported to Juche government that he and his group briefly broke the Icewindian Code but sadly Icewindians switched to a new Code. What little they heard however is cause for concern as it seems something big is about to go down but they dont know what.
RP: Military Attache
Icewindian Government requests an Military Attache to the possible War... if not then Military Observers would work. To sweeten the request the Icewindian Government through Marshall Hemlock offers to send forth Ranger's Mercenaries to provide assistance.
RP: A Dragon out of Time. (Part 2)
Kizum walks down the Mountain the rags he has for clothing is mostly gone at this point. He knows he must find clothing soon and eventually he comes across the nicest looking house one that looks of nobility with lights that gleam more bright then Campfire's and torches he has ever seen. Perhaps it was those olive pots he has heard of so long ago. He continues to lift his legs up high treading through the snow until he heard the sound of an avalanche mixed with purr and roar of an Tankclaw and he stood there freighted before he saw two Icewindians in strangest yet fanciest clothing he has ever seen. They have metal sticks with an sharp bit at end attached to it. There clothing is a bright blue and the roar's come from there strange magical devices that they ride on like horse riders. When they stop they look over Kizum and Kizum couldent understand a word but they threw to him an Crystal necklace and some spare clothing. It was the nicest clothing Kizum has ever seen however before he could speak they speed off on there magical metallic rides away. Kizum took off the rags and they blew away in the wind and he would take on the clothing which felt extremely comfortable and nice however they were very tight and not his size but it would do. The Crystal neckace burned at touched so he left it behind. He remembered the two who saw him also wore those necklaces. What strange people... He looked to aurora closer now and saw things had changed as larger buildings made of stone and metallic ingots were seen with what seemed like clear potion glass as well. He continued forth now entering outskirts wondering what he got himself into.
RP: Growing Tension.
As the meeting ended and discussion was made. Marshall Hemlock and Princess-Admiral Catherine returned home the two plotting as both knew just like Blayredeshian Emperor Wallace would one day... well... his day would come one day.... the two while in denial knew how dumb it would be to not at-least make preparations for possible foreign intervention should certain countries want to change leadership of Icewindia if that day comes.
Though Marshall Hemlock was noted that his meeting was mixed feeling as it was both met with respect yet was also very tense given what he learned there.
The Empire of Moonflower gladly accepts the military Attaché offered by Icewindia. Empress Soft Snow also accepted the offer of Ranger’s mercenaries being deployed on the frontline. The new Empire of Moonflower may very well be in its first war.
RP: Support? Nah to the Frontline soon?
Soon 12 Helicopters arrive with 60 Mercenaries in total with additional 40 Mercenaries coming in via boat alongside the 12 Imperial Icewindian Officers who form the Attaché. The 12 Officers would be giving advise and would be examining future battles to gain experience and assist in planning of battles with Moonflower Command. Meanwhile Ranger's Mercenaries lead by Mr.Ranger Himself will be assisting the Front-line holding 40 Mercenaries in Reserves. The Plan was to have Huey's provide a support role yet they have been informed by Moonflower Command they will be placed on Front line so Mr.Ranger as always will adapt to the situation and will assist in Front-line Infiltration Missions and or Search and Destroy. In meantime he is shipping in extra parts and fuel as he realizes that Moonflower Equipment is dated but still effective. Ranger's Mercenaries equipment is also outdated as well but its cheap, durable and reliability is high so there's that. It seems Ranger's Mercenaries can be treated as an Elite Force.
Ranger himself walks around talking to men playing cards and visits the strange Ponies hes heard so much rumors about. He has a side business selling firearms but upon realizing that standard Firearms would not work he is very interested in lever designs these ponies have so maby he can make some Conversion kits. He can still sell Artillery as it seems thats somthing ponies can handle all be it with great difficulty. There is one Weapon he does want to sell thanks to Contacts within Icewindian Military.... Napalm. However he is more interested in what enemy there facing and intelligence on that enemy forces, composition, formations and how well they are dug in along with location etc...
RP: A New Member
Shortly after the return of the Blayredeshian diplomats from Sola Urba; it would be announced in a joint statement by the Ministries of State, War, and Trade that Sola Urba was formally accepted into the Nationalist League, military engineers were departing from Blayredeshia to Sola Urba in order to construct two military bases with one being a naval base and port in the north of the country and an army outpost in the south-west on the border with Cervenia all of which will take around 2-3 years to construct, and that a trade agreement had been set up between Sola Urba and Blayredeshia where the East Dixia Trading Company plans on buying products from Sola Urba for Blayredeshian markets and the Collective Crop Commission and National Federation of Livestock plan on selling crops and livestock respectively to the Sola Urban markets with Texar Oil also allegedly beginning to send ships and engineers to Sola Urba with the intention to begin oil drilling operations in the area.
RP: New Political Wildcards
In preparation for the upcoming 2145 Elections starting in September, two parties have risen. Samilo Ezrael announced he has founded the Christian Democratic Party, which is almost certainly not going to win the elections. However, due to Ezrael's popularity, the party will earn some seats in the National Hall of Delegates. This is good for the few Christians living in Windardia, because not only will they get representation in the government, Ezrael's party has a chance to attract people to the religion.
Atric Lezel, the famed hero of the Civil War, has also founded his own party; the Militant Party. Despite this party's ideology maybe not being the most popular, it is the dark horse to win the election thanks entirely in part to Lezel. These two parties have shaken up the political landscape, and are bound to make the Elections interesting.
RP: Desert Hole improvements
Bandit King Dula Melaku Retta had decreed that houses and farms will be improved in Desert Hole.
RP: Start of the 2145 Elections
The list of parties participating in the 2145 Elections has been finalized, with a total of 11 parties participating:
Birthday Party-Watts Uppdogg
Christian Democratic Party-Samilo Ezrael
Civic Nationalist Party-Faye Ryuga
Elvish Unionist Party-Kidil Reaf
Industrial Worker's Party-Tallin Estin
Human Rights Party-Erick Balling
Militant Party-Atric Lezel
Populist Party-Sorin Thelis
Say No to Taxes Party-Fennikan Atay
Scholar Party-Sylvester Sarra
Windardian Conservative Party-Joxin Adler
The Civic Nationalist Party, led by Constitution signer Faye Ryuga, are the favorites to win the election. However, some in Windardia believe that Ryuga does not deserve to be President, claiming that he has not contributed nearly as much as Ezrael and Lezel did. This turns eyes to those two figures' parties, the Christian Democratic and Militant Parties. The Christian Democratic Party revolves mainly around Christian values and ideologies. Although led by Samilo Ezrael, leader of the Nationalist movement after Dreldin Hoffer's death, the road to victory will be difficult. Christianity, though the number of baptisms and Windardians attending Christian churches is on the rise, is not a popular religion, with only about 900,000 out of 30 million practicing the religion.
That leads to Atric Lezel and the Militant Party. A dark horse to win the election, this party's ideology revolves around a strong military to defend the nation. Lezel has made it known that if elected, he will increase spending on the military and police forces, attempt to join TNL and open up Windardia to trade with another nations, primarily Blayredeshia. Some fear a Militant victory would result in a military junta coming to power, while the more optimistic citizens say a Lezel administration would mean Windardia would have it's first official military.
Although the other 8 parties all have chances to shake up the results, the Civic Nationalists, Christian Democrats and Militants are the 3 parties to expect to win. The election will end on November 2145.
The counter offer is agreed upon and plans for the joint military exercises are scheduled.
RP || Ivery Autonomous Zone: Equipment Shipped Out
- After a considerable amount of time, the full order of refurbished M8A2's are finally being shipped over to Ivery City. Several experimental improvements and additions brought over from previous experimental variants of the M8A4 and A5 have been incorporated into the refurbished vehicle. Dubbed the M8A2 SCORPION (Synergie du COntact Renforcé par la Polyvalence et l'InfovalorisatiON), it brought the M8A2 up to par with currently existing M8A5's in terms of performance and capability without the added cost. The upgrade, or renovation as the Artaecusians have called it, expands on several categories; Information, situational awareness, mobility, firepower, and armor.
With the introduction of the new CONTACT tactical radio system developed solely for the SCORPION renovation, it allows the vehicle to network efficiently with Ivery's battle network system and their combined forces system. The modularity of this system allows for the ability to remain relevant for at least half a century, and the combination of it being a line module allows simple removal and replacement should other tactical radio systems be desired.
Situational awareness has been increased with the implementation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). These UAV's will allow the commander of the vehicle to perform reconnaissance duties within the comfort and protection of the vehicle. Controls for the UAV are also given to passengers in the rear compartment, allowing infantry to scout ahead for any dangers. Unmanned Ground Vehicles have also been implemented as part of the situational awareness upgrade, allowing both commander and passenger to further scout into occupied buildings.
The engine has been upgraded to the Octanus H-334H Multi-fuel Gas Turbine Engine capable of 2,500 shaft horsepower at 3,000 rpm and a different six-speed (four forward, two reverse) Allison X-1202 Hydrostatic automatic transmission. The governor on the engine has been removed to allow the full 2,500 theoretical horsepower to be utilized as improvements to the Gas Turbine has greatly extended the engine life.
The tank is equipped with the latest fire control system with open architecture, stabilized sights for the commander and gunner, night vision devices, a new human-machine interface, system computers, a laser warning system and other equipment. The thermal imaging sight is capable of detecting targets at night at a range of up to 6000 m and determining its belonging at a distance of 4500 m.
In addition, upgrading its protection through the development of specific armor kits will enable the M8A2 SCORPION to better cope with the evolution of threats, especially improvised explosive devices. The M8A2 SCORPION includes additional modular armor on the hull and turret. The front part of the hull will be protected by a thick passive armor, while the rear part is equipped with an armor wire screen to protect the passengers and spare equipment from missile attacks from RPGs.
With the recent influx of immigrants into the country, the already high pricing of housing in coastal cities has been pushed even higher, with prices in cities in the Southeast like Lutrillia, Roslalensk, Liansk, Liepaja and Liandao pushed as high as ₭500,000 to ₭1,720,000. This pricing, coupled with a rapidly growing homeland population, has led to a mass exodus of people to the countryside, in turn crippling the economies of cities which no longer have as many minimum wage workers to call upon in the workforce. As such, the National Guard has been called upon to set up detention centers for the Rumanians as a temporary measure, until a more permanent fix can be found for the situation, with several solutions having been proposed in Parliament.
RP: Successful takeover
After just a surprise air attack on major military airfields in the region The Empire of Moonflower launched its invasion on the independent province to the north of them that had been claimed by Empress Soft Snow. There are reports of how fiercely Moonflowerian soldiers fight. Doing suicidal bayonet charges and fighting to the last pony. The Empire of Moonflower has made significant gains into this Northern Territory and has the ferocity of its soldiers and the advisors from Icewindia to thank for these victories.
