    Canada

    International News announcement

    In an unprecedented move the Canadian Federal Imperium and the People's Republic of America have stepped forwards together to announce that the tensions between their nations need to be relieved at once. In support of these goals a few tentative agreements were made public. A small border crossing at Niagra falls will be opened for a very limited form of trade between the two nations, in the hopes of developing economic relations. In addition the two nations are going to send a joint expedition to South America to establish the situation there, as a sign of co-operation between the nations.

    Several discreet messages arrive for the leadership of all important and even most non-important nations. They detail the formation of a new company specializing in information gathering and, between the lines, other clandestine operations. For the correct price, to be negotiated privately with each client, sabotaging rivals or blackmailing 'allies' is now within reach of even those who lack their own proper intelligence services.

    Unrest in the Americas
    Announcement of a possible alliance between CFI and PRA is not met with rejoicing. Quite the opposite. A deep generational hatred exists between the two countries and protests begin forming almost as soon as the announcement is made. The militaries of both sides look askance at their leaders, and the border becomes tenser than ever rather than opening as had been hoped.

    Peace in Asia
    Both Asian wars have wound down. After bitter fighting the Resplendent Empire has been forced out of the Kushan Empire by Kushan and Mongol forces. And the Kushan seem content to return to their old borders rather than continue into Bod.

    Meanwhile in the South the invading Khmer empire has been violently repelled by the Majapahit and Satavahana Empire. As a result of this the Khmer Empire also suffered some social upheaval as the ruling government was replaced by a more cautious body.

    War in Africa
    As if to replace the war in Asia two new wars have begun in Africa. In a surprise invasion the kingdom of Portugal has launched a full blown assault on Kenyuganda and are quickly defeating the defending forces.

    Meanwhile long simmering resentments have erupted into full scale hostilities in the south as the Republic of Saloa launched a first strike on Madagascar's mainland territories.

    We agree that the announcements could have gone better. We will use our influence with the media to try to calm our people, and recommend you do the same.

    We have already taken action of portugal, although we misjudged their intent. We intercepted their communications with Rome and assumed that they were going to conquor Spain. Although we are willing to enter a war be careful about Portugal. They have 22 Military, and so we cannot take them alone. If we are going to intervene militarily we will need allies. Of course we will use our usual covert methods, and try diplomacy first.

    As for Madagascar, stopping that war seems a much more achievable goal. If a war is necessary we will help, unless prior commitments to the Portugal problem stop us.

    Several Madagascar Patrols Ironclads steam up to the Grim Vessel. "Unknown vessel these waters are restricted. State your country and purpose or leave immediately."

    Near Australia the Grim boat is ignored. Massive cargo vessels ply these waters going to and from the great Ports of the nation to trade with the rest of the world. And plainly they have no interest in such a primitive vessel.

    And in South America no contact is made as no one is here to do so. Occasionally a native of one tribe or another can be seen through the trees or a canoe in the distance, but none make any efforts to approach the Grim vessel.

    A rough, crude radio transmission is sent from the boat; "We are the Grim of the Frozen Lands. We hunt for the Path of Stars. Do you know where we can look?" The voice speaks brokenly, in a patchwork of whatever was on the radio for the last few years.

    Australia
    The Grim make landfall, and are heading to the great mesa at a good pace, with only one or two people left behind to mind the boat, hidden in a isolated cove.

    Well given that there wasn't anything on the radio for the past few years, or ever, and that the patrol ships don't even have radios, they don't seem to understand what your ship's speaker just said. Or in fact realize that anything was said.

    Australia
    Your boat and your expedition are quickly intercepted by Australian police units in armored patrol cars. They demand to know what you are doing here. The officers at your boat order your lookouts to get off the boat so they can search it. A fishing boat passing by is one thing. One that avoids the main ports and lands at an untended cove is probably a smuggler.

    Just, you do not consider retaking the land they stole from us mere decades ago just. What more do you ask that we simply let their past atrocities go unpunished and wait until they are plundering our capital and killing our women and children. Madagascar has shown no hesitancy in taking our lands in the past. Why should wait for them to build up themselves up until they are strong enough to feel ready to take another bite of Saloa.

    And we applaud your desire to seek world peace. That does not change the fact that trading with those who seek to ally with your enemies is still the height of foolishness. You are already telling them that you plan to threaten us with your armies. How can we possibly trade with you on those terms.

    The group that was heading off towards the mesa is trying to communicate with the officers. They seem slightly confused by the cars. One of them, with many talismans, draws a picture of the mesa, and some symbols next to it on the ground, which seem to be astrological in nature. He also writes some math. Some very complicated math. Math that borders on rocket science.

    At the boat, when it seems that the officers want to insepect it, they get off. The only goods it's carrying are what sems to be a few extra crude bone and stone spears and some dried fish and seal meat, as well as a few rather stange metal boxes. But, when they inspect the hull, they get a shock. It's not enough to get it to fly, but they incorperate Styxium into their ships hulls, probobly to increase speed. If confronted by this, the look outs shrug, and you get the feeling that they don't speak the lanugauge.
    OOC; They may be partialy primitive, but they have a few tricks. please? Also, till recently, they were isolated down there, and becuase they're the only guys with radios, they had no way of learning the tounges of the outside world.

A diplomatic solution must be attempted first. Madagascar stole your lands in a time of great turmoil, they had no justification and that should be clear to everyone."

    Why should the international court care about our differences with Madagascar. We have seen no evidence that they would even bother to show up, much less care that Madascar had no rationale for stealing our land. We would just end up wasting a lot of time. Time in which Madagascar would be building up its fleet. Then we would be in exactly the position we are in now, except without the military advantage we have worked for years to build up.

    "The frozen lands? You mean Antartica? Surely no-one can survive in those sorts of conditions."

    The coast guard pauses for a few moments.

    "I'm going to need to call someone higher up the command chain. Can you wait a few hours while I get a diplomat here?"

    The Frozen Lands have been our homes for countless years. And we should be able to spare 36 hours and twentyfive minutes.

    The diplomat arrives slightly early. He's dressed in suit and tie, but it's clear he rushed his preparation; the tie doesn't match his clothes, and his suit is badly ironed. He extends a hand to one of your men.

    "I'm Hugh Gordon, representative of the People's Republic of America. I understand you have an astrological event to see. Do you mind If I join you? It'll give us to time to talk."

    Sure, come aboard. Also, we can loan you some heavier clothes for when we reach the circle. After all, while it may be hot as hell here, we don't have any heating meterials on the ship.

    We are Glad that this is not a spot on our relations. As to what we were attempting to gain I will explain. The balance of power on our continent is very fragile, and should a change in the balance of power occur war will likely result. This does not bode well for our nation.

    When we thought they would invade Spain we were worried. Spain's Alliance with Aztlan lets them have a great effect on the balance of power. Granted none of that is direct, however it is still significant. Should Spain have fallen the balance of power would have shifted, and one or another war would have resulted. We don't want to deal with another continental war so soon, and as such informed you, so that you would survive the suspected invasion, preserving the balance of power.

    You have speculated that the larger international community would not care about what is going on with Madagascar, however Canada at least is interested. We do not want another war so soon after the last great war. We need a time of peace in order to repair the world from the last war. If a dispute was brought forth we would of course side with the wronged party, however going to war without even attempting a diplomatic solution will lose you any good will that you otherwise may have had.

    You may. Just as soon as you pass through immigrations. Ee are not in the habit of letting complete strangers simply wander into our lands.

    You are incorrect. Even if our militaries did grow at the same rate, and there is really no telling that they will the ratio between our militaries would shrink. In fact if our armed forces are to grow equally then it is better to strike earlier so as to maintain the greatest possible ratio of military force in our favor. The only time to wait is when you know your military is growing faster.

    If you really support us then you can help us right this wrong now. We are even willing to let your forces ensure that nothing untoward occurs as we drive Madagascar back.

    We are not aware of any. Although the Canadian Imperium was insistent that Portugal or Rome was planning to invade us nothing has come of it.

    And what better way to ensure peace for your country than by simply not getting involved. There is simply no reason for anyone outside the continent to fight in this war. Even if what you say is true you and the PRA make up only a fraction of the world's powers. If you can persuade a large number of the world's powers to agree with you then we are willing to agree to a meeting. Otherwise we see no point in wasting efforts that would be better spent on the war effort.
