    it is springtime on the continent and the fate of the world is still uncertain 500 years after the shattering. people wake up everyday knowing that it may be their last day on earth... but life goes on

    in the west

    what is the latest news from the surrounding areas? the harmonioum empires military dictator of the western shores asked a small middle aged man, his chief of external affairs

    the man clears his throat then replies [color"sienna"]the nagarean theocracy seeks allies against us as usual but we have managed to prevent an actual war so far. our ports have seen a suspiciously large number of merchant vessels arriving in the past few weeks. supposedly from some rising power in the western ocean. they are no great threat however.[/color]

    excellent news. things are going much better than expected. soon we should be able to let the emperor himself visit his new holdings. how goes are campaign against the giants in the mountains?

    the small mans eyes grow melancholy. not good. they have repulsed all of our attacks. we managed to avoid taking too many losses but they managed to get general brunae during the battle. what are your orders?

    the dictator transcribes several documents and affixs his seal to them before responding i am sorry to hear about the general. pull all our forces back from the mountains we cannot afford to lose any more men right now. also i would like you to order the general staff to move fully half of the available legions to the dalmascan border. just in case the theocracy tries something.

    yes my lord. the man says with a bow and withdraws from the room

    in the south

    her royal majesty, queen lymslea of the queendom of faluna sat in council with her top advisors. no! we can not afford to aid the theocracy in this matter. i would like to keep up diplomatic relations but we cant risk antagonizing the empire. see if we can aid them in another way the queen says to the assembled councilors

    okay. i see your point. her elder brother conceded

    there now that thats settled is there anything else that requires my attention? the queen said in a bored voice. she was never very comfortable in matters of state

    her high commander, sir georg who was quiet up until that point spoke up there isnt really anything else going on at the moment. the rozarians are conducting war games but thats nothing new and the vale is quiet as usual. however we have been recieving disturbing reports of some sort of hellish cult to the south claiming land. they hav'nt been overtly hostile yet but all the same

    the queen instantly perked up at that. mobilize the army then and have all fleets ready to sail down the feitas river at a moments notice. i want to see if we can resolve this peacefully though. perhaps these reports are exaggerated

    in the east

    bah!!! just mobilize the army and send those beasts back to whatever hell they came from. i refuse to let those damn goblins push us around!

    the dwarf kings aide says right away my king. and with that he salutes and runs off

    in the north

    any other potential profitable oppurtunitys here in the north? the merchant prince kholad asks his wife, a slim half elf with thick blonde hair

    his wife responds in a rich melodic voice quite a bit actually. apparently there are rumours of some sort of risen king back from the dead who is attempting to forge a empire for himself. i dont really believe that hes dead of course but it would be wise to keep a few eyes up there. i also sent a few people to check out that mine you asked me about. they managed to buy up the entire mining party right under their masters nose. in other news it turns out that the gnomes may have some competition from some forgotten race of trolls if you believe the rumours of drunk old men and the hive mind is doing nothing as usual

    prince kholad laughed and said ha ha ha. quite a bit of unlikely news up here then. but i suppose we'll keep an eye out nonetheless

    Yes, Patria is a nation of fanatics, worshiping their god-emperor. I'll try to represent that in the roleplay.


    In a bright land, within the White City, upon His golden throne, the Emperor watches over His people, holding them within His grey eyes.

    From the effectively omnipresent eyes which are His sigil, the Emperor watches. From the Flesh Imperishable with which all Patrians are blessed, the Emperor protects.

    From the endless pools of magic and will that the Emperor embodies, Patria is given the bidding of the Emperor, and the Emperor bids it to rise. So the Emperor has decreed. So it is, for in Patria, the Emperor is God.

    Within the courtyard which rests beneath the Emperor's court, the doors to the Bottomless Tomb stand open. Within the afterlife, the dead hear the Emperor's call, and it is heeded. Stepping forth, one by one the countless dead receive the Gift of the Flesh Imperishable.

    Praise and Glory to the Emperor, for He is Risen! By the Grace of the Emperor, Patria is Risen!. As the Emperor commands, so does Patria act! The Emperor has given His command, and all Patria shall hear it and grow great in His name!

    Venetian Isles
    morale: +

    Yet another session of the bickering council. Thinks Grand Admiral Antonio da Parma as he enters the Council Chambers. At least I should be able to unite them in their quest for wealth. I shouldn't have much trouble pushing through todays Agenda.

    With his arrival everyone in the council chambers rises and offers a salute. Sloppy he thinks as he watches some of the councilmen. He returns the salute quickly, and moves to take his seat. After sitting through hours of internal troubles he finally finds an opening and motions for Caterina di Franco to speak.

    Caterina rises and begins a presentation to the council, saying My fellow Councilors I would like to propose an update on our trading policy. Until now most of our trade has been focused on the nearby nations, however thanks to our new Cannons we now have the Naval power to defend longer trade routes to more distant nations. I propose to the council that we extend our hand to the Vale city-states and the Zexan Consortium.

    Zevran, a council member with heavy interests in the merchants guilds immediatly rises and says I second this motion. Trade will greatly benefit our nation, and we should seek it wherever we can.

    After some minor discussion on technicalities the council approves the proposal.

    Antonio is pleasantly surprised that he did not have use his influence to pass the measure, but supposes that in matters of money the councilors are fairly level headed. Now comes the hard part He thinks to himself, before rising and saying The Navy of the League has decided that our new found naval power should be used to seek out unexplored island in the surrounding area. This promises to be a great was to expand our economy and increase our standing in the world. As such We propose allocating a third of our Naval resources to the finding of new colonies.

    Zevran immediately leaps to his feet with a look of outrage on his face. A third! Our navy is all that keeps pirates from raiding our trade routes! and you propose to send them on a fools errand to find islands that may not even exist? How could you even think this.

    Francisco Caravello slowly rises and in an almost bored tone says Sir I think you greatly underestimate the strength of our navy, although what else can you expect from someone who does nothing but lounge in his villa all day. This prompts some laughter, and after it dies down Caravello continues The navy has already destroyed the pirates in the area, you have nothing to fear from them. We can easily afford the losses, after all we have a greater navy than basically everyone on the planet, and unless we piss of the harmonium it looks like it will be staying that way.

    The insult combined with the rational response and the obvious approval from the Grand Admiral is enough for the councilors to barely pass the vote, at which point Antonio breathes out a sigh of relief. He wasn't sure that measure would pass. Despite that he regretted having to go to Caravello for help. There would certainly be some payment at a later date.

    The council continued debating trivial issues for another hour before the session ended and Antonio walked back to his office to speak with Caterina.

    I appreciate that you were willing to go to Caravello. I know how unpleasant that must have been, given how at odds you two usually are. The islands we find should greatly increase our strength and position in the world.

    Indeed, they will. Now I will write out a missive to the Harmonium, formally introducing us and our peaceful intentions. Hopefully they won't be to suspicious. I want you to write to the Vale, and the Consortium. Hopefully we can get some deals out of them.



    To the Harmonium
    Spoiler
    Show

    To the duly appointed representatives of the Holy Harmonium Empire, I the Grand Admiral of the Venetian Naval League wish to formally offer greetings and open negotiations with your nation. Recently a great many of our merchant ships have been going to your empire to trade, as you have likely noticed. I wish to assure you that the Venetian Isles have no hostile intent, and merely wish to open friendly relations. Hopefully we can soon come to a mutually profitable arrangement. I understnad that you have recently come to acquire some new lands. Bringing these lands up to the high Harmonium standards will surely cost a good deal of money. I'm sure that the Venetian Isles can provide a good trading partner for the good you undoubtedly need. I sincerely hope that we can come to an agreement soon.

    Antonio da Parma, Grand Admiral of the Venetian Naval League



    To the Vale
    Spoiler
    Show

    To the representatives of the Vale city-states, I bring greetings from the Venetian Isles, and wish to negotiate a mutually beneficial proposal. With our expanded navy we are now capable of defending trade routes to more distant nation such as yourself, and wish to propose a trade agreement. We wish for the reduction of tariffs so that merchants will be able to trade more easily. We would both benefit immensely from this proposal. Your resources could benefit our nation immensely, and our trade relations could give you access to goods of supreme quality from all over the world. Surely you see the benefits that could be gained by this. We will be awaiting your response with anticipation.

    Caterina di Franco, Minister of trade for the Venetian Naval League


    To the Zexan Consortium
    Spoiler
    Show

    To the representatives of the Zexan Consotrium I bring greeting from the Venetian Isles, and wish to discuss a mutually profitable proposal. We have a large network of sea trading relationships with nations across the world, and would like to expand our list of trading partners. As you are currently the largest trading empire in the world an association between us would bring unheard of profits. With your network we could buy goods from territories in the interior of the main continent, while from us you would gain easier access to the goods produced in the island nations. Additionally our merchants ships could provide a faster and cheaper route for your trade with the southern nations, as traveling by land is always slower than by sea. Should you be interested in this arrangement then reply to us, and we will send a representative to negotiate with you.

    The man seems to be perfectly at ease, despite being unarmed, unarmored, unsupplied, and without a means of trasportation.
    I have come merely to make an offer. The Emperor has recently laid His claim upon a port, and it has been secured. We would establish lines of trade through this port to yours.

    Additionally, if you would hear it, we would offer a pact of mutual defense."

    You follow the path to the Emperor easily, coming to the capitol of Patria. It is built entirely of marble, gilt with silver and gold. At the center of the city stands the Emperor's palace, from which the golden light is emitted.

    At no point is your path impeded, and the citizens can even be seen to make way for you. The palace doors are open, allowing you direct access to the Emperor.

    Within the throne room, you find Him. As He opens His eyes, revealing endless grey throughout, the glow fades, and He is revealed. The Emperor of old, from a time long lost to myth.

    "Welcome, Friend of Old, to this White City. It is indeed good to see you again, in this age.

    I am told that you wish to renew the friendship which we shared so long ago. If so, then I would propose the same treaty as we shared in those times, that the citizens of each of our nations should be allowed to travel freely within the other's domain, that traders should find open markets within any place where the other's traders may do business, and that we should aid each other in times of hardship and war.

    If it should please thee, our friendship shall blossom anew."

    Antonio looks at the man in front of him, and noting his lack of fear deduces that he is likely a mage of some kind. Looking at the man he says in a reserved tone Although the Venetian Isles are always open to more trade, I must ask what empire do you represent? Until recently we have dealt mainly with the western nations, and are unfamiliar with the Emperor you represent. Should he be a legitimate power we will graciously accept your offers of trade relations.

    As for the mutual defense pact that will require more consideration. Our nation is mainly naval based, and cannot provide many armed forces for a land war. So we would need to specify exactly what the contract says. We would also need to know the current state of diplomatic relations that your empire has with the surrounding nations. If we are to enter a mutual defense agreement we would like to know what we are getting into.


    Saying this he motions to one of his guards and says Bring me Caterina and Caravello. They should be here for these negotiations.

    You hesitation is completely understandable. We would greatly like to prove our friendship to the Holy Harmonium Empire, and will gladly undertake efforts to do so. For instance you currently have some of your Navy protecting your sea trade routes with friendly nations. The Venetian Isles has a fairly large navy, and could take over some of these duties, freeing up these naval resources for a more productive use. In order to continue further discussions a representative of our nation will be arriving shortly, with a gesture of our goodwill.

    He comes bearing the following treaty
    Spoiler
    Show

    {this is a summary of the intent, not the legal text. Also anything in {} means OOC notes}

    By signing this treaty both the Harmonium Empire and the Venetian Isles agree to the following conditions.

    1. To take no actions to impede the flow of trade between each other

    2. To lower tariffs between merchants representing the other party

    3. Any new territories acquired by either party shall have the same conditions apply, as apply to the main nation.

    4. Neither nation shall take action against the other to prevent trade with any third party nation, regardless of the signatory nations opinions of the third party.

    5. Should another nation attempt to disrupt the trade of either signatory without a formal declaration of war the other signatory nation shall assist in maintaining the trade routes. {not a key selling point, can be negotiated away if the harmonium dislike it}

    6. For the duration of this treaty the signatory nations agree to partake in no aggressive action against the other party. {also negotiable. Harmonium might want to negotiate non-aggression separately}

    7. Either party may terminate the treaty should they desire, however they must pay a sum of money to the other party {++ econ, temp}

    The Venetian Isles agrees to the following conditions as well as the above

    1. To use their naval power to assist the Harmonium in protecting trade routes {+ navy to start, but negotiations might bring it higher or lower depending on harmonium desires}. The Venetian Isles reserve the right to withdraw these fleet elements should they become engaged in a war.

    2. A signing bonus of + econ {temp} shall be provided to the Harmonium Empire as a gesture of Goodwill.

    The Harmonium Empire agrees to the following conditions in addition to the both nations conditions.

    1. The empire acknowledges the Venetian Isles claim to any colonies that are founded while this treaty is in effect.


    {all points negotiable to some extent, but the ones I have highlighted, are the ones I am less attached to.}

    The ambassadors to the other nations will take longer to get there as the nations are farther away (aka. I'm being lazy and will write their stuff later today).

    Greetings to you, merchants of Faluna,

    We of the Jack Collective, as you well know, have a bit of a lacking trade network. As such, your aid would greatly benefit us in expanding this, and we can offer you something that will aid you in turn. What we deal in is information, and if traders like you had insider information regarding what other nations required, you could make a hefty profit. If such a deal interests you, we gladly welcome discussion as to further details. Otherwise... Well, we don't have much else to offer, I'm sorry to say.

    Good luck to you, whatever your decision.

    Hail to you, Stone Kings,

    We of the Collective have heard many tales of the superb craftsmanship of your people and have an interest in trading for such arms and armor for our forces. It is well known of your distaste for the Harmonium Empire. Maybe we can arrange a trade regarding that. We feed you what information we can find on their actions, and in return you equip our armies? Or, if we can find the available funds, we can pay from our coffers instead.

    The exact details can be elaborated on at a later point. We just are seeing if you have any interest in such a deal.

    We think that cooperation of your espionage power and our military might could lead to easy and profitable raids on a variety of nations. If you use your espionage to smuggle some troops into key economic centers (the Vale, the Zexan consortium, the Venetian Union) we could strike them and loot and harm their economy (or other systems within the area). Then, you could smuggle us back; resulting in minimal losses and (hopefully) great loot. Does this seem like a good plan to you?

    We would be interested in purchasing the experimental cannons, which you offered for ++- temp econ. However, as we do not have the funds to afford that, we offer this deal instead: + temp eco and + temp tech for the cannons. Would that be acceptable?
