    Honourable Duke Omid,

    with all due respect there is no shortage of mercenaries in the Imperium, and I could easily hire as many of those as I wished.

    My main concern is freeing Jinks systems from their oppressors, and as such I would agree to a partition of their space.

    Regards,
    Duke Athaia Kelse

    Zaqaru

    Within the public media, channels, government announcements, the victory over Sansone has been greatly celebrated at first, welcoming Gade into the fold. The news quieted down for a while, but the past weeks the tone has been growing increasingly unfriendly towards Sansone. Talk of dangerous weapons, irresponsible action during the war and the old rivalry simmering show that the public opinion towards Sansone is bad.

    With the public advice towards the merchants to avoid Gade, the public statements have grown worse, to Zaqaru officials denouncing Sansone for the danger they brought to trade and stability in the sector for destabilising the gates. There are several public figures who show indignity for House Sansone making the public broadcast of the Gate Transit Authority instead of Zaqaru.

    Some investigations already hint that the main reason Zaqaru was unable to get a warning out before Sansone is because the authorities were debating whether to classify it a Category 2, 3 or 4 Risk Rating. The debate seemed to have a lack professional input, as no scientific report regarding the gates was mentioned on public report, making the lack of Zaqaru scientific capacity once more painfully obvious.

    What really has the ranks riled up and what is spewed as an accusation towards Sansone is that the public merchant advisory paints a worse situation than it is. Only two of the warpgates are destabilized, those leading to Dimarq and Champseau, meaning traffic to the systems in Sansone space from Gade is still safe. Ofcourse, most merchants will be interested in moving to or from Dimarq and Champseau, and beyond, but the principle remains.

    There are some officials which claim Zaqaru is already busy arranging the gates to be fixed, but even Zaqaru critics are vocal to point out the lack of scientists to deal with the issue. Unsurprisingly, no public claims are made how soon the gates would be fixed.

    Dear Duke Athaia Kelse,

    Thank you for describing the options. Given the amount of research capacity available to me, or rather lack thereof, I feel that permanent knowledge would be too costly and too inefficient to deal with this problem. Instead I believe the most viable course would be if you and your people fix the problem, so your terms are acceptable.

    Considering I am asking for the effort of scientists, I doubt that would divert resources directly from the war efforts. I am willing to pay for the effort of your scientists, which you can use for whatever purpose you wish. As you must have received word from my Grand Adminstrator, you are well aware Zaqaru is willing to sell you weapons and covert devices, so I can offer to produce those for you instead of direct payment.

    How much of your research capability would you be willing to make available to the purpose of fixing the warp gates?

    Yours sincerely,
    Duke Abolar Zaqaru

    Dear Earl Varrais de Pantou,

    No provisions of tribute due are put in, because there are none, besides the aforementioned blueprints. Ofcourse, during war, if you have fleets or agencies available, there is the expectation you will use it to defend Champseau. Beyond that, no tribute, but no investment either, due to conflict and warp gate malfunction taking away the means for investment. Should the capacity to invest become available once more, the opportunity to renegotiate this agreement will be available. I thought this would suit your wish to have sovereignty and develop the system as you saw fit.

    However, from your response I believe I may have made a misjudgement. Investment as requested in Champseau can certainly be arranged, with the usual expectation of tribute, but only after the conflict with Sansone. So if I can amend your first point with “after the Sansone conflict”, then it can be agreed upon. In return, I offer to ensure the warpgate stabilization efforts of Zaqaru will first be directed to Champseau, instead of Dimarq.

    Yours sincerely,
    Meta Zaqaru

    Dear Grand Minister Halmond Abelard,

    It is with pleasure I receive your order. Our production lines will begin immediate work as soon as we receive your first payment and deliver at the soonest opportunity!

    I am also aware you are busy with a new wave of expansion through the Imperium. May I inquire what kind of offers you are making available?

    Dear Earls and Counts of the Sector,

    On behalf of Zaqaru, I wish you well in your noble endeavours to assert noble superiority in the sector and hope you will prevail. To aid in your efforts, Zaqaru is making available two trade offers to the earls and counts with trade and market amongst you, so they can assist those with fleets and agencies.

    First is a military spaceship, an improved version of the Zaqaru bomber, the Orca Bomber equipped with nuclear missiles to inflict even greater damage against heavily armoured targets. 3 Ships of Orca Bombers are offered per five yearly output of an industry. Each shipment contains 5 squadrons of fighter craft. With each squadron having 5 fighters, that makes for a grand total of 75 bombers at your disposal. Any orders will be produced in five years time.


    The second option are agency devices. As you may be well aware, Zaqaru excels at cryptographic capabilities and this extends to the digital realm. To assist your agents in the same field, we are willing to make available to you specialized devices and hardware to operate in the digital and electronic battlefield.

    Each shipment with contain personal devices with specialized hardware and three squadrons of scout spaceships with antenna equipped with all kinds of hacking hardware, such as sensors, computers and communication interceptors. This allows agents to more effectively work in their area of expertise, from disabling enemies, infiltrating hostile territory, listening in to foreign communications, to being tasked to advance cypher or enigma.

    The price is a five-yearly output of an industry for 2 shipments of Hacking Hardware, or if choosing to purchase in bulk, a decade of industrial output in exchange for 5 shipments of Hacking Hardware.
    I hope to hear from any of you soon should you be interested in our offer.

    Yours sincerely,
    Grand Administrator Earl Shursun Byleuc

    [OOC] Making 2 offers available:
    - 3 military equipment (Orca Bomber) for 1 trade, to be received at the start of next turn.
    - 2 agent equipment (Hacking Hardware) for the price of 1 trade, or 5 equipment for 2 trade, to be received at the start of next turn.

    Dear Duke, I can devote as much as I have available, but a brief recon is in order to determine how much effort will be required to fix the warp gates.

    I agree to have such efforts repaid in cash or equipment, although it is not our way in full, but I will be adamant in having no such deal if you would peddle your equipment to our enemies.

    I will await a strong statement on the matter on your part, your Grace.

    Duke Athaia Kelse


    The scenery is idyllic, but the Kelse brothers look sullen. It's not for anybody to scold the Duke Athaia in the whole Imperium, yet a screeching voice echoes in their head, one that repeats that they are not to miss two social events in a row ad nauseam.
    "I would be a lot more useful on the Jinks front, you know."
    "No such thing happening until you are out of Academy Nath. You might as well represent our House at the race."
    "I'm fairly sure that warp forsaken race is far more dangerous than this whole war. Or did you miss the part where it lasts five days?" Athaia gazes into the distance, not responding. "Besides... that looks like an actual horse."
    "Well, yes. There was some gene engineering involved in its breeding I suppose, but still..."
    "Do I really have to?"
    Well...


    House Kelse to participate in social event, analysts are shocked

    Almost a full ten years younger than Athaia, Knight Bachelor Nathael is the youngest of the three Kelse siblings, and the bulkier of the two males. He doesn't make much of a show of himself, as the reclusive members of House Kelse are wont to do, and does little to hide his own annoyance at the whole matter either. At the very least, Lyraen cerimonial uniforms are quite elaborate, and Nathael itself quite politely request an audience with the patrons of the race to send his brother's regards.

    Designed for war rather than mere racing, the Wayward Fleet interceptors are a bit on the smaller side of the scale, but still pack a punch when it comes to firepower.

    With a lighter chassis than most ships, they sacrifice durability for manoeuvrability and speed.

    Its pilot is the quiet sort, appearing to be one of many of the Wayward Academy. You hear his name announced for the starship race, but it doesn't ring a bell whatsoever.

    Dear Duke Athaia Kelse,

    As stated previously, I will readily provide guidance to a recon of your scientists. I would also like to inquire what the Lyraen way regarding payment usually is, for future record.

    My last intelligence states that the scientists of six Lyraen Universities would then be available to fix the warp gates. Assuming this information still holds, in exchange for their services, I am willing to offer to fully arm your fleets and agencies with Orca Bombers and Hacking Hardware respectively. To my knowledge, this amounts to 9 shipments of Orca Bombers and 8 shipments of Hacking Hardware. I will add 2 shipments of Hacking Hardware for reserves, for a total of 10 shipments, as I know how deadly covert warfare can be. Would this offer be acceptable to you?

    Regarding House Jinks, assuming a deal is made regarding the warp gates, Zaqaru will cease taking orders and making trade offers while your war with them continues.

    Yours sincerely,
    Duke Abolar Zaqaru

    [OOC] What are the public war goals of the Duchy of Lyrae against House Jinks? I also asked this in the ooc before and this becomes more relevant now, as it will be an indication of how long your conflict will last.

    your terms of payment are acceptable, and as such we will make haste to estimate the amount of work required at once.

    Our manpower is generally not for hire, but fixing defective gates is a just cause in itself and the request was gracious enough that we should intervene on your behalf.

    More importantly, I thank you for the courtesy shown in agreeing not to sell the Jinks advanced equipment.

    Dear Meta Zaqaru,

    If you are not offering investment nor desiring tribute. And there can be no awarding of titles until I have finished colonizing Champseau then there is very little on the table here.

    You gain the prestige of having me as a vassal and I get the dubious honor of becoming a target for your enemies. I am still amenable to the prospect of eventually offering my fealty. But perhaps it would be best to have this discussion again when we can actually offer each other something tangible.

    If anything I would prefer that the Champseau warp gate not be stabilized until you are finished with your feud with the Sansone. You may view it as a liability, but the disruption works both ways. I have little to fear from that direction now.

    The spaceship Adnergaresh has vanished during transit of the Dimarq - Gade warp gate!

    On its way to deliver critical supplies to the population of the colonies in Gade after the battle with House Sansone, the spaceship Adnergaresh held vital food, water and medicines for civil use. It never made it to the Gade side of the Dimarq-Gade warp gate, utterly vanishing in the void between gates.

    The loss of the spaceship means groups of civilians will have to wait longer for additional supplies to be sent. Already new spaceships are sent, with brave crew willing to venture through the gate in assistance. While other spaceships have suffered from calamity in the hazardous travel of the warp gates, none were on such a vital mission as the Adnergaresh. Duke Abolar Zaqaru and Grand Administrator Earl Shursun Byleuc have already sent their condolences to the family of the crew of the spaceship.

    Several markets ask for caution with any future travel through the gates, though one renowned scientist claims this was just a stroke of bad fortune that a spaceship with such an iconic mission had to be hit. Several government officials lay the blame squarely by House Sansone, which has caused the instability of the warp gates. Earl Ereski Susa has even been bold enough to suggest that House Sansone has not the right to govern their current two star clusters and should only be limited to one if they are willing to show such disrespect to the trade lanes. Since that statement, it is evident that such a sentiment is on the rise in other circles too.

    Dear Earl Varrais de Pantou,

    Apologies for any miscommunication, I see my initial offer is not the right one here, so let us both forget about that and come back to the proposal you made, for I believe what I can offer is tangible enough.

    I propose my daughter Sidad Zaqaru and your son Rostac de Pantou get married and that their marriage contract binds our families together, with de Pantou as vassal to Zaqaru.

    1. Zaqaru will protect the holdings of House de Pantou, as is the responsibility of any liege.
    2. Zaqaru will, after peace has been signed with House Sansone and until the title of Countess has been awarded to House de Pantou, provide enough resources [Any combination of 2 Trade/University] every five years to establish a colony and ensure it is properly staffed.
    3. For as long as House de Pantou holds the title of Earl, they reserve of the usage the current research facility for any de Pantou projects, as well as any facilities created without aid from Zaqaru.
    4. Zaqaru will award House de Pantou the title of Countess as soon as a total of four colonies have been established in the Champseau system.
    5. After Zaqaru awards House de Pantou with the title of Countess, they agree that the House de Pantou reserves the usage of two research facilities for House de Pantou projects in perpetuity. Upon full development of the Champseau system, this usage is increased to three facilities. The use of the other facilities is at the behest of Zaqaru.
    6. House de Pantou agrees not to sell any designs resulting from the above projects, unless mutually agreed by the Zaqaru Dynasty.
    7. Zaqaru will dedicate 5 prestige to the contract, House de Pantou needs to dedicate no prestige to the contract. This prestige may be used in the creation of the Countess title, where the Countess vassalage contract replaces this contract. In the event that Zaqaru does not hold up to its obligations, the prestige is awarded to House de Pantou.

    I hope this offer will be acceptable to you. I believe that a contract, bound in marriage, is tangible. It is a promise that you will get a title, you will get support, you will have freedom to develop and protection. For I assure you, the forces of House Sansone will not pass the Champseau - Gade warp gate, even if it is repaired. I will request priority is given to the Dimarq - Gade warp gate, however.

    Yours sincerely,
    Meta Zaqaru

    The Hidalgo ground away under the brutal heat of the desert, still unclear who had the advantage. Numbers were lower now, many craft having suffered too much damage to continue. The second ridge was a fast reducing dust cloud, and the final stretch into Zhou's Valley was a comically steep incline festooned with Digger Warrens, trapdoor like structures dug by the extinct Giant Muethen, huge insect like creatures who hide from the desert heat. For the race they acted like gigantic potholes on an already steep surface, ripping wheels off larger vehicles and swallowing smaller ones entirely.

    The new terrain spread out the racers drastically, allowing Pasha Juia to surge back to the front pack, weaving through the dangers and following Sir Barlow and using his shattering wake for cover.

    Zaqaru

    The attitude of Zaqaru towards Sansone heats up with the disappearance of other vessels going through the gates towards Gade. Lawsuits are filed, complaints, harsh articles, loud critics, heated debates. The tone is hostile, the call for punishment is common, the emotions run deep. The Earls of Zaqaru have had enough of the various outlooks and clamour for a public statement from the Duke. When it is arrives, it is profoundly harsh towards House Sansone.

    Zaqaru Ultimatum to House Sansone

    For rejecting peace and acknowledgement of their territory, for bringing danger and calamity to the trade routes and travel in Akkadu, for the threat they pose to the stability of the warp gates, for the foulness of their actions,

    Zaqaru hereby rejects the Sansone borders and brings forth the old claim on territory from their former title as Kings of Akkadu, to restore order and stability to the sector. In an act of generosity, House Sansone is given the opportunity to avoid further conflict and fulfill the demands posed henceforth.

    House Sansone is to fulfill the following demands within two weeks time or a clash of Zaqaru and House Greenflame against House Sansone is unavoidable.

    • Cede one of their controlled duchies, the Birqu Duchy, to Zaqaru, so the territory may be granted to a more responsible vassal as Duke when Zaqaru rises as Kings of Akkadu once more.
    • Swear fealty to Zaqaru as protectorate, to become a vassal Duke when Zaqaru rises as Kings of Akkadu once more.
    • Repay House Greenflame for all losses incurred in the war over Gade.
    • Assist in the repairs of the Gade warp gates.

    House Sansone currently controls the Kara and Birqu Duchy. The Kara Duchy contains their capital, Avone. The Birqu Duchy is composed of Ukish (12/-4), Deset (13/-4), Erecht (14/-5) and Ramaga (15/-5).

    House Sansone Buys Out the Market
    In a prepared statement Duke Stefano Sansone announces the collaboration of the Sansone Ministry of Science with the Okeke Explorer's League to restabilize the gates in the Gade system in order to ensure the safe passage of all ships travelling to and from the system. House Sansone and House Okeke also enter into a defensive pact to better protect their joint warp gate work.

    He expresses gratitude that there were crews willing to face the dangers of the gates in order to bring aid to the people of Gade, and regrets all the lives lost. House Sansone will pay the full cost of all ships and cargoes lost so far as well as match any life insurance that the lost crews took out.

    In order to prevent further loss of life Duke Sansone swears that House Sansone will out of its own stores deliver any aid being sent to the Gade system in exchange for the cargoes of the aid ships that would otherwise go through. This offer will continue until such a time as the gates are stabilize to at least Category 1.

    House Sansone has also cancelled all of its freight orders, imposed a punitive tariff on all imports for private citizens, and implores the Zaqaru Dynasty to stop sending ships to their doom.

    It is with a heavy heart that I announce Zaqaru has received word from House Sansone. They have rejected the Zaqaru ultimatum.

    In the meantime, Duke Stefano Sansone has chosen to lie to the public at large. I hold proof that the announcement is false.There is no defensive pact between House Sansone and House Okeke, nor has there ever been discussion thereof between the Houses. It is an outrageous bluff.

    The impunity of House Sansone is further marked by even speaking about work on the warp gates, when there has been no discussion with the rightful owner of the warp gates affected. The warp gates are within Zaqaru territory and thus my responsibility. I declare that I will ensure to the reparation of the warp gates, for House Sansone will be unable to do so as they only seek conflict over peace in rejecting the ultimatum.

    Sansone offering to cover for the aid of Gade is but a ruse, in an attempt to foster goodwill. As House Sansone holds no wish to acknowledge the Zaqaru responsibility, it is a blatant sign their reparations are an attempt to increase their knowledge about the effect of the weapons they employed in battle, so they can improve upon them, further posing a threat to the sector.

    For their foul behaviour, I declare WAR on House Sansone! The demands of Zaqaru stand. I call upon House Greenflame for their assistance in this war, so it may be swift in its righteousness.

    To House Okeke, I ask that you do not let yourselves be pressured into assisting House Sansone by the deceitful words of Duke Stefano Sansone. There is no honour nor contract binding the two Houses, as I have made public to the galaxy at large. Yet I generously offer to your House that which I can rightfully give, which House Sansone tried, but cannot. Free access to the Gade warp gates, so they may be studied as desired.

    Earls of Birqu, I will work to ensure House Sansone will not use your efforts to endanger the warp gates further! The warp gates will be repaired, so trade may once more flow freely to your star cluster!

    Dear Duke Okeke,

    I regret House Sansone has made a false public statement involving your House. I know there is no defensive pact between either of your Houses, so there is no need to oblige to any of House Sansone’s demands going forward.

    Should you still hold interest in the warp gates I will grant you full access to the warp gates, which lie within Zaqaru territory.

    Zaqaru has made an agreement with a party specialised in warp gates to repair the warp gates towards Gade. I offer to bring you in contact with this party, so besides repair, research on the emissions and causes of the malfunction of the warp gates can be done together. This will allow House Okeke to further advance their warp gate knowledge as desired.

    I hope you will take me up on my offer, for House Okeke’s mission of exploration is noble and it would be my pleasure to improve relations between our honourable families.

    Yours sincerely,
    Duke Abolar Zaqaru

    Dear Earl Varrais de Pantou,

    That will mean the contract to be as follows:

    1. Zaqaru will protect the holdings of House de Pantou, as is the responsibility of any liege.
    2. Zaqaru will, after peace has been signed with House Sansone and until the title of Countess has been awarded to House de Pantou, provide enough resources [Any combination of 2 Trade/University] every five years to establish a colony and ensure it is properly staffed.
    3. House de Pantou reserve of the usage the current research facility for any de Pantou projects, as well as any facilities created within Champseau without aid from Zaqaru. The use of the other facilities is at the behest of Zaqaru.
    4. Zaqaru will award House de Pantou the title of Countess as soon as a total of four colonies have been established in the Champseau system.
    5. House de Pantou agrees not to sell any designs resulting from the above projects, unless mutually agreed by the Zaqaru Dynasty.
    6. Zaqaru will dedicate 5 prestige to the contract, House de Pantou needs to dedicate no prestige to the contract. This prestige may be used in the creation of the Countess title, where the Countess vassalage contract replaces this contract. In the event that Zaqaru does not hold up to its obligations, the prestige is awarded to House de Pantou.

    Are we agreed?

    Yours sincerely,
    Meta Zaqaru

    As the finish line in the Zerass Flats approaches the terrain opens up to allow the participants to put on a final burst of speed. Pasha Juia and Sir Barlow are neck and neck as they throttle their respective vehicles to the maximum. It appears that the finish will be a spectacularly near thing when the vehicle in third place, piloted by the minor noble Kalan Omerth, explodes in a a burst of metal.

    This is no unfortunate accident however as out of the debris rushes a small tri wheeled buggy. Everything extraneous has been explosively stripped away allowing Omerth maximum speed and maneuverability. To everyone's surprise, including possibly Omerth, this is just enough to get past the two front runners and squeeze out a last minute victory by a whisker's margin.

    Omerth glories in the exultation of the crowd waiting in dusty stands while Juia and Barlow give him glares that could melt durasteel.

    Duke Stefano Sansone Statement
    The Zaqaru think we lie about our offer to make reparations. We do not. Even now, even with this war we the Sansone will pay to cover any ships and cargoes lost through the affected warp gates. Though we will amend that we won't cover the loss of warships sent to wage war on us. Because first doing so would adversely affect our ability to pay the losses of innocent ship crews and second warship crews have already signed up to put their lives on the line by the very act of their service.

    Dear Duke Raudos Arnos,

    I reach out to you, because I am in need of help. The treacherous House Sansone has damaged the warp gates in our conflict, damaging the trade routes through the system and putting the star system Gade at risk.

    I seek to reduce the Sansone threat to the sector, but they have managed to gain the support of House Okeke. They are present in the Dorvale Sector, in which your House has the allegiance of a star system.

    Therefore I ask for you to blockade House Okeke. This way, I will be able to swiftly reduce the Sansone threat, preventing loss of life. As House Okeke and your House are neutral to one another, House Okeke’s forces will be forced to return. Without their support the Sansones will be overrun within the upcoming five years, the conflict will be over before the blockade can be contested and the conflict may reach your House.

    In return, I am willing to negotiate regarding the payment in trade, previously offered Orca Bombers and Hacking Hardware, or a generous discount on the Orca Bombers and Hacking Hardware. Alternatively, I can offer a military favour after the Sansone threat has been subdued. I am willing to negotiate on other terms.

    My Grand Admiral has worked out two possibilities for blockade, as below. Blockade A, in front of House Okeke, and Blockade B1 and Blockade B2 near the branches from House Barlow at Blockade B1 and B2, where only the spaceships of House Okeke would be blocked from entry. For additional security, all blockades may be put in place, if their forces are capable of using alternate warp gates with their knowledge of Outlaw Gate Maps.


    I hope we may reach an agreement and in any case I ask that this offer remains between the two of us.

    Yours sincerely,
    Duke Abolar Zaqaru

    The Track Race happened later that afternoon, a blindingly fast affair that tested the limits of engineering more than driver skill, and the canyon run under the hidalgo was soon to begin. After the winding chaos of the Hidalgo however, the next event that really shook things this Sashaw was the Starship race. A chance for noble houses to show off their latest and greatest ultralights. Unlike the atmospheric races, starships were too expensive for independants, so the start line barely contained a dozen ships, many of which doubled as warships for their sponsor nations. House Greenflames entry, the Hexshot Superiority Fighter cruised silently through the access track, with six wings each sporting a retro-thruster for maximum maneuverability, though its usual armaments were stripped for a minimum profile. The track ran through the asteroid belt of Samarkand IX, and while there were rescue frigates stationed in orbit, the race was still quite dangerous.

You did not even think to consult my council before throwing our unofficial alliance against a defensive pact of unknown power?

    Time had passed since their last meeting and as they met again, Abolar frowned as Farid spoke.

    “Farid, you speak of debate, but do you think Sansone was open to debate? They announced they would trespass Zaqaru territory and in communication to Zaqaru outright rejected the ultimatum, denying to pay anything to your House and not addressing the other demands, let alone discuss them.”

    “As for the defensive pact, it was nonexistent at the time of the ultimatum or my own declaration. It is only through overnight communication between their Houses they turned a research agreement, which also stood in violation of territorial borders, to negotiations regarding a defensive pact. I will note that even now their pact is unofficial, as there has been no public declaration at all from House Okeke.”

    “It pains me to hear you speak our agreement is unofficial, as you previously agreed to this war. Instead of blatantly declaring war outright, I kindly gave House Sansone a chance to meet the terms so they could prevent a war.”

    “They instead chose to insult the Zaqaru honour by announcing they would repair the gates along with another House on my territory, without any discussion, any consult. Had House Sansone directly contacted myself with an offer instead of a claim, I could have told them I already have an agreement to have the gates fixed and that assistance is appreciated. Though it would still not meet all the demands, negotiation and debate could be the next course of action. And this is why I speak of ancient rivalries. House Sansone has no intention of discussion, debate or words.” Abolar looks angry at this point, his muscles tensed.

    “Do you not realise me how much it pains me to say that? I have worked for decades with Duke Stefano to reach a peace accord, to finally put the feud between our families at rest, culminating in the marriage contract which House Sansone broke. I tried words, I have done diplomacy, I have debated and conversed. To great extent, with great effort, dedicated a large part of my life to it. He knows I am a reasonable man, open to debate, open to negotiations. He chose to devy that with his most recent actions and words, to instead disrespect and offend Zaqaru.”

    “I declared an ultimatum, a chance for him to take, and he rejected it. I do not bluff or lie, as Duke Stefano does. Therefore, his inappropriate and insufficient announcement had to have consequences.”

    Duke Abolar Zaqaru sighs. “But you are right, I should have thought to contact and consult contact you. My sincerest apologies for that, for we are equal partners, both nobles, and we must stand together to make plans here.”

    “So please, do not name me the villain here, when it is obvious House Sansone is. His announcement regarding the reparation of the warp gates is missing vital information. I know he wants to research what effect the mines have had, no doubt to improve upon them. Why do you think he announced a defensive pact to protect their ‘join warp gate work’? None is needed if you politely offer the owner to repairing it. Mark my words, there is more going on there. He will prove to be a threat to the sector and beyond if his strength is not reduced.”

    I Farid Saquar, condone the action of house Sasone in their efforts to repair the damaged warp gates of the Gade System. They truly display the noble virtue of grace in defeat, something all nobles should stand ready to display should bitter disaster meet their righteous armies. House Zaqaru should learn from this example, for it seems that even in victory, grace eludes them. I was not consulted about furthering this war past the offer of reparations and the pacts with house Okeke, but was instead called upon like a chained dog. Our arrangement with house Zaqaru was never official. I offered aid as mercenaries to a cause I once saw as just. Now I see the Zaqaru-Sasone divorce was merely a convenient opportunity for Duke Abolar to pursue grudges long expired.

    Turn 3


    War Rages On
    A full decade has passed since the death of the old emperor, and the wars sparked by his death continue. In the heart of the Imperium the Laramy civil war rages with millions dead on both sides, but the massive Imperial estates continue to churn out soldiers and ships for the grinding fight. In the north the war between the Jinks and Lyrae is one of move and counter move as the Lyraens attempt to move their superior military might into position where they can attack without being sabotaged mid campaign.

    The Berger-Voss war on the other hand has been restricted to mild skirmishes through their border gate as the two sides ramp up military production in an arms race to produce a decisive advantage. And in the east news is scarce past the fluctuating warp gate, but rumors are that the Zaqaru have suffered a setback after their decisive victory in the past war.

    Tensions Rising
    After a period of build up analysts suggest that many noble houses have reached the limit of their estates ability to fuel further growth. Ancient treaties bind many of them to their clusters, but such treaties hold little weight when neighbors are flexing their muscles. As such most believe that even the current wars will pale in comparison to what is to come as many more noble houses began fighting over the most bountiful systems.

    Keys to the Throne
    A posthumous proclamation from the old emperor has been released through the Imperial communication networks.

    Quote Originally Posted by Imperial Decree Theta 2049

In the truest sense the throne will go to the one who brings the most stability to the Imperium."

    Long range Destructor Missiles slid silently from their tubes far below the port-forward view cameras of the H.F. Amon. Captain Treygan grinned as the weapons pulse drives ignited, flashing afterglow all that remained as they sped after their targets. The fight was comically small in comparison to the warzones in Gade only a few years before, but both fleets were fighting all out then. This was two great armada playing chicken over a far less strategically important system.

    But it was still war, and people were still dying.

    At over two million kilometers, the Amon's missiles were unlikely to land a direct hit, especially against the excellent missile decoys of the DRotP frigates, but lobbed like deep space frag grenades they could still gore poorly shielded corvettes and frigates, and the People’s Navy gave as good as they got with barrages of smart torpedos. Scanner blips marked out half a dozen dogfights in the vast space between the Heavy Destroyer Amon her the Frigate Squadron and the P.N.S. Defiant, a Light Cruiser.

    “Comms? How far off is Bafut Squadron?”

    The old comms officer winced, clearly not wanting to be the bearer of bad news.
    “Still about four million Captain, it will be at least half an hour before they are at the edge of missile range.”

    “Very well,” Treygan straightened his shoulders, “Call back the ultralights tactical we are outgunned until Bafut arrives, nav, pull us about and gun the engines once the frigates are in our tractors.”

    The gunnery officer let out a triumphant whoop over the coms, and the scanner blip of the Defiant grew fuzzy and indistinct as her outer shields rippled under impacts.

    “Nice shot Guns, but save the celebration, we are pulling back. Our armaments aren’t up to clawing with cruisers, no sense in wasting missiles.”

    The old comms officer’s voice spoke again, “Actually captain Treygan, they are calling for the general withdrawal, seems the enemy is pulling back too.”

    “COWARDS, permission to pursue captain!” A general cheering filtered through the gunnery officers com unit.

    “Put out your fire guns, we have our orders. No ambushes, no overextending, no risks.” Captain Treygan tried to hide the bitterness in her voice, while the Saquars were good Dukes, and Arda an excellent admiral, it was hard to see the reason for not engaging when they had the advantage. Still, with this skirmish, there was little doubt that war would come. The Whitewyne sector would not escape this era unscathed.

    A few weeks ago our fleets engaged with the People’s Navy in an unofficial skirmish in defense of Earl Roshan’s family. While there were few casualties, it poses several important questions about the DRotP’s future intentions. I hope I do not bore your exotic halls with talks of war…

    I write because your organization has communicated more with the DRotP than any other, and I find myself in desperate need of council. From your talks with them do you think there is any hope for returning them to the fold of the Imperium? I did not know their old nobles well, but Nobility is not inherently cruel or evil. I am hopeful we can avoid a conflict, equal or not I am certain the First Equal would happily throw away the lives of their soldiers and civilians to cling to power. But the behavior of the last ten years…

    The People’s Navy was repelled from Earl Roshan’s system, however, they are far from defeated. They pose a significant threat to both our nations, as they had considerably more manufacturing capabilities by our last intel than either of our nations, and their fleet has grown considerably. I have up to date intel on their fleet, as well as a foothold near their borders. There will be few opportunities better in future to cut them down to size and end their threat.

    I need allies. Official ones, not the madness that happened with the Zaqarus. I have the fleet but it is lacking in a key area. One that your house excels at.

    The Demcratic Republic of the People is advancing faster than I had at first feared. I aided your house some years ago, and helped to turn your System into a jewel of Whitewyne. It has come time to consolidate. Swear fealty to my house, and I will dub you Count with my prestige to back you.

    Zaqaru


    Fighters docking with a Carrier

    Carrier

    Each Zaqaru fleet has one Carrier, which serves as its backbone. The fleet’s fighters are docked there until combat starts and serves as support to frigates. It is a long spaceship, at 951 meters length. A mobile base of maintenance and logistics, it takes up the responsibility of coordination, hosting most strategists and the Admiral of the fleet. Only the bravest Admirals forsake the defensive position of a Carrier for more dedicated combat vessel as the typical Zaqaru Fleet lacks spaceships of equal size of a Carrier focused on firepower. The Zaqaru focus on fighters stem from its past of working in asteroid fields, where bigger spaceships were more of a liability than an asset.


    Interceptors launching from the Carrier’s Fighter bay

    The Carrier brings the fighters to battle and serves to restock, repair and rearm them. Additional supplies are stocked on board, from food to ammunition for torpedo frigates. It carries enough materials and equipment to do on-site repairs, capable of restoring operations and ensuring it keeps playing its prime role over the course of combat. Long ago, it served a role as base of operations in asteroid mining fields and still retains that functionality, as it can serve as a docking bay for resource collectors in asteroid fields to use the resources for its own stock.


    The Carrier may have low manoeuvrability and speed, its role in a fleet is essential as it serves as the hub of logistics and coordination. Equipped with defensive turrets, these are only sufficient to take down a small assault of a few fighter squadrons or a pair of frigates. Staying well behind the line of fire, when the battle moves to involve Carriers for anything longer than a skirmish, it is likely the battle is already lost. Nevertheless, the large spaceship can sustain a lot of damage with a thick hull until the Carrier’s escort can take down the threat.

    Orca Bomber
    Price: 1 Trade (upfront payment) for 3 shipments.

    The Orca Bomber is an improved version of the Zaqaru bomber. The chassis is of a familiar and trusted design, with the necessary upgrades. The armaments are of Greenflame design, an array of nuclear missiles to inflect even greater damage against heavily armoured targets.

    Each shipment contains 5 squadrons of fighter craft. With each squadron composed of 5 fighters, this makes for a grand total of 75 bombers at your disposal. They are available in the colour scheme of your choice, to fit with the rest of your fleet and be ready to target any enemy.

    New! Fire Control Module
    Price: 1 Trade (upfront payment) for 2 Shipments, 2 Trade (1 upfront, 1 on delivery) for 5 Shipments.

    The Fire Control Module ensures improved battle operations by synchronising fire and enhancing tactical control for a Fleet. It is a large module to be installed on a sizeable vessel, such as a flagship or logistics ship. It can fit from a frigate and upwards, though at heavy cost to other systems. Most suitable would be a Carrier or Destroyer and up.

    The Fire Control Module is dedicated to oversight and control over an action radius, increasing efficiency within range. Advanced computers track targets and allies, enabling commanders a better overview of the battle and coupling with other ship systems to coordinate assaults more effectively. Besides giving the ability to better coordin lead combat, the systems are also designed to synchronise targets and allowing devastating barrages of weapons fire, increasing damage dealt to enemies.

    Hacking Hardware
    Price: 1 Trade (upfront payment) for 2 Shipments, 2 Trade (1 upfront, 1 on delivery) for 5 Shipments.


    Designed with Zaqaru expertise in cryptography and the digital realm, Hacking Hardware was developed to assist your agents in the same field. Specialized devices and hardware operate in the digital and electronic battlefield.

    Each shipment contains personal devices with specialized hardware and three squadrons of scout spaceships in the colour of your choice. The scouts have antenna equipped with all kinds of hacking hardware, such as sensors, computers and communication interceptors. This allows agents to more effectively work in their area of expertise, from disabling enemies, infiltrating hostile territory, listening in to foreign communications, to being tasked to advance cypher or enigma.

    New! Sensors Array
    Price: 1 Trade (upfront payment) for 2 Shipments, 2 Trade (1 upfront, 1 on delivery) for 5 Shipments.

    Information regarding the enemy is what will prove vital in any operation. Zaqaru provides advanced sensors to meet this need. Specialized sensors arrays to be incorporated in large vessels, such as Carriers and Cruisers, as well as the latest sensors installed in dedicated sensor probes.

    This allows highly effective intelligence gathering, so that messages or sensitive information may be earlier uncovered. The information provides a significant advantage in the battlefield, as by being aware of the enemy before they are aware of you, disabling them is even easier. The equipment readily synergises with hacking Hardware.

Most suitable would be a Carrier or Destroyer and up.

    The Fire Control Module is dedicated to oversight and control over an action radius, increasing efficiency within range. Advanced computers track targets and allies, enabling commanders a better overview of the battle and coupling with other ship systems to coordinate assaults more effectively. Besides giving the ability to better coordin lead combat, the systems are also designed to synchronise targets and allowing devastating barrages of weapons fire, increasing damage dealt to enemies.

    Hacking Hardware
    Price: 1 Trade (upfront payment) for 2 Shipments, 2 Trade (1 upfront, 1 on delivery) for 5 Shipments.


    Designed with Zaqaru expertise in cryptography and the digital realm, Hacking Hardware was developed to assist your agents in the same field. Specialized devices and hardware operate in the digital and electronic battlefield.

    Each shipment contains personal devices with specialized hardware and three squadrons of scout spaceships in the colour of your choice. The scouts have antenna equipped with all kinds of hacking hardware, such as sensors, computers and communication interceptors. This allows agents to more effectively work in their area of expertise, from disabling enemies, infiltrating hostile territory, listening in to foreign communications, to being tasked to advance cypher or enigma.

    New! Sensors Array
    Price: 1 Trade (upfront payment) for 2 Shipments, 2 Trade (1 upfront, 1 on delivery) for 5 Shipments.

    Information regarding the enemy is what will prove vital in any operation. Zaqaru provides advanced sensors to meet this need. Specialized sensors arrays to be incorporated in large vessels, such as Carriers and Cruisers, as well as the latest sensors installed in dedicated sensor probes.

    This allows highly effective intelligence gathering, so that messages or sensitive information may be earlier uncovered. The information provides a significant advantage in the battlefield, as by being aware of the enemy before they are aware of you, disabling them is even easier. The equipment readily synergises with hacking Hardware.

    Designed with Zaqaru expertise in cryptography and the digital realm, Hacking Hardware was developed to assist your agents in the same field. Specialized devices and hardware operate in the digital and electronic battlefield.

    Each shipment contains personal devices with specialized hardware and three squadrons of scout spaceships in the colour of your choice. The scouts have antenna equipped with all kinds of hacking hardware, such as sensors, computers and communication interceptors. This allows agents to more effectively work in their area of expertise, from disabling enemies, infiltrating hostile territory, listening in to foreign communications, to being tasked to advance cypher or enigma.

    New! Sensors Array
    Price: 1 Trade (upfront payment) for 2 Shipments, 2 Trade (1 upfront, 1 on delivery) for 5 Shipments.

    Information regarding the enemy is what will prove vital in any operation. Zaqaru provides advanced sensors to meet this need. Specialized sensors arrays to be incorporated in large vessels, such as Carriers and Cruisers, as well as the latest sensors installed in dedicated sensor probes.

    This allows highly effective intelligence gathering, so that messages or sensitive information may be earlier uncovered. The information provides a significant advantage in the battlefield, as by being aware of the enemy before they are aware of you, disabling them is even easier. The equipment readily synergises with hacking Hardware.

    I am honoured to announce the destabilised warp gates to Gade have been repaired! I offer my gratitude towards my predecessor for making the requires arrangements and my compliments to Duke Athae Kelse for lending aid in troubled time. Congratulations and my thanks to the scientists of the Duchy of Lyrae for their dedication and expertise in ensuring the returned stability of the warp gates.

    No threat from warp gates remains for travel throughout the Manzat star cluster. However, due to the continued war, danger remains for travel in Gade and beyond, therefore civilian movements are discouraged towards the star clusters of Birqu and Kara. Zaqaru supply spaceships have finally managed to reach the settlements in Gade without impediment from the warp gates to restore regular operations.

The suggested course of action would be to dedicate the research efforts of your University to create a prototype for the new colony and share the resulting blueprint.

    Both noble Houses agree not to sell the blueprint and both will be able to use the blueprint to create equipment.

    Farid arrives with a military escort, though his private craft is purely for envoy work. He is dressed in a formal business suit, though the Samarkite stylizations give the clothes a vague robe like quality. Once the initial pleasantaries are through with, Farid settles in to talk business.

    "So alliance talk. I wish for this to be as mutually beneficial as possible, and for that I propose we begin with trade relations. However-" Farid holds up a finger. "Both our duchies have a significant advantage of universities. I propose we both put our brightest minds to work on developing your nation up to [commerce 2], and then in a few years your scientist aid mine in copying that information over into my systems. In addition to building a trade agreement of sorts now, I believe we can both turn considerable profit in years to come."
    [OOC: we both put 5 science in this turn to build up to commerce 2, then next turn we both put in 4 to copy them over to me. Also the wording of commerce implies that it unlocks certain trade interactions, which I hope we can then use on each other.]

    Farid flicks his wrist, and a small hologram flares up covering the skirmish in Earl Roshan's system.

    "This alliance will not be struck in a time of peace however. While we are not officially at war, the DRotP is pushing their borders. Unless they are intending to push directly into the Haytham and new Sashaw fleets, which would require declarations and possibly stir up galactic opposition, they will be hitting the Earls along the western Whitewyn. A trail which gives them room to expand and puts them close to your borders."

    The holo zooms back to show the predicted routes and probable fleet composition.

    "I propose we declare ourselves allies and offer guarantees to the Earl's under threat. Given the utter hopelessness of their situation they may even become your vassals should that be the route you wish to take."

    Farid pauses, to gauge Izabellas reaction thus far before going into actual military strategy.

While I am curious what may be the reason behind the lack of response, I am even more interested in your current stance towards House Voss and I hope you will honour me with a response regarding this inquiry.

    Yours sincerely,
    Grand Diplomat Namzara Zaqaru

    Dear Shadda Cabal,

    I offer you my sincere gratitude for giving directions for the Zaqaruans lost in space, allowing them to make their way home.

    Before my loyal subjects established communications with you, the name Shadda Cabal was but a rumoured name to me. My subjects have informed me that your group lives travelling through space, which is uncharted to us. Out of curiosity, may I inquire what brought you to venture out there?

    Yours sincerely,
    Duke Nabuna Zaqaru

    We have decided that this war is a strain that neither of our houses can afford at the current time. We are currently in the process of drawing up an armistice and non aggression treaty.

    Grand Administrator Emit,

    My advice is to be more discreet. You are selling new and marvelous things to everyone for significant profits. And you are also engaged in a great and terrible war where all your fleets are involved. It's only a matter of time before you get pirates.

    The only thing you can offer us is military protection. The Triune Pact plans to conquer this cluster and use our resources to form a Great House.

    Our houses have been at war for an entire decade. And the war looks to be dragging on for even more years. It is my hope that you will be willing to negotiate a cease fire so that our subjects no longer have to give their lives for the machinations of the great houses.

    Sincerely,

    Dear Duke Farid Saquar Greenflame,

    I would like to inform you that the offer regarding Hacking Hardware extended to you earlier by Zaqaru is still valid. Since that offer Zaqaru has developed new equipment, such as an extensive Sensors Array. Should you be interested in making a purchase, please let me know and I will send you more information.

    Given lack of prior interest and most recent interactions, I thought it best to wait until contacting you. Should you have specific wishes which I may facilitate in the future, please make me aware so I can look into possibilities in the time to come.

    Yours sincerely,
    Grand Administrator Earl Yaadus Emit

    Thank you for your advice. I will take the advice into account going forward. Your words have reminded me times are changing and that threats of old may resurface. To my knowledge pirates have not been a danger of note throughout the Empire, but without Emperor this may well change.
