I wouldn’t mind making a trade deal with you but the lands of our two people are to far apart. If we had a way to make long distance manageable (and more importantly safer) then I can see our trade agreement become a reality.

@Tribes/Nations/Peoples

Glorious Arstotzka has it’s arms open and accepting for any willing trade partners, let us all prosper together.


Greetings fellow neighbours.

I am proposing a solid and long-term alliance between our three tribes, I believe that as a united and cooperative force we can achieve much greater goals with a higher efficiency than if we were going it alone.

Of course, we will all benefit equally from this alliance and develop alongside one another, not forgetting to mention supporting each other in times of war or crisis.

As the cornerstone of this alliance I propose a list of agreements and treaties that we must all accept and adhere to.
To begin I’ll list my proposed ideas below:

1. Open trade between all members of the alliance.

2. Free military movement within the territories of the alliance e.g. Arstotzkan warbands are permitted
access to lands of the Anatolians and vice versa, this prevents movement congestion and promotes trust.

3. Big advances in technologies are to be shared amongst all members of the alliance.

4. Land/Wealth/Resources obtained through cooperative war is to be fairly split amongst members. If multiple members are fighting a common enemy then anything gained qualifies for this rule. Anything gained independently is kept by the individual, this is to preserve independence of the members.

5. A compulsory Defensive Pact, any member that is attacked is to be assisted without hesitation by the other alliance members unless they themselves are in an immediate conflict. This is purely defensive however, if you attack someone and they retaliate, it is no longer compulsory for your comrades to assists you.

6. If a members becomes victim to a crisis of some sort, one that isn’t brought about by direct war, then the other members are to assist through necessary means. This is a type of insurance.

Falcon, Stalker, feel free to add, modify or remove any of these, this is a mutual agreement and I want to keep it diplomatic.

And if you do agree to the alliance I recommend you develop a currency of some sort to smooth the trading out, silver coinage will do.


Glory to Arstotzka.

Guys, remember that agreements between players (Alliances, Trade Routes) aren’t something I deal with. Unless something is secret and I have to be told discreetly, I go by what’s in the thread. I do that because it promotes player-interaction, and honestly, it’s sort of a waste to make someone use two actions to declare something again.

We of Al Amarja are here to deliver a special announcement to the other powers of Medieval Europe. We will gladly allow others to cross our nation’s soil if they need to trade with other nations who live across from them and needs to cross our nation to do so. But in the conditions that visiting parties in our land most neither threaten us nor disturb our ways of life.

I guess this also make us allies too. Seeing that most of my trade partners and allies are far away from where Al Amarja is.

@Sachielions: Is there still time for me to agree with our trading deal?

Turn 2, 530 AD

Map of the World

Events:

- Vitalian, a Roman General, has had enough of Justin I’s religious views, and raises a revolt of more than 80,000 men in the name of Orthodoxy. After setting siege to Constantinople three times and winning several pitched battles against the Imperial Army, another twist in history occurs, and he wins his final battle. Moving on to drive the Bulgars from Thracia, he is hailed as a worldly and spiritual savior, and begins to carve out his own empire of zealots.
- The Arinians have disintegrated, as no leader has come to unite these people. Top Tier Smug has left the game.

- A principal form of currency is established based on precious metals, boosting the efficiency of transactions.
- Having set up for the kill, Kickassian Warriors face little trouble conquering their neighbors, and a capital is established.
- A classical aristocracy is set up, based on merit and capability. Perhaps torn from the book of a neighbor.

- Attempts to make contact with the Lombards are hazy, at best. the Lombards are too busy murdering the Gepids, and the Gepids are too busy being murdered by the Lombards.
- Scouts report the the city to the south is a rather well-to-do place, perhaps on account of being situated in the mountains, making it a tough target.

- Scouts are sent into the Dracone and Arininan Lands. The Dracones seem to be a fairly unorganized people, and the Arinians have fallen from power.
- A unique technocracy emerges, based on conditional merit, with power changing hands for the situation the Al Amarjians face.
- Poisons have a short lived life as popular weapons. Unfortunately, many of these chemicals cause adverse effects on the meat hunted animals, and are soon regarded as impractical.
- Tree houses spring up. They are fun and whimsical, but ultimately do little to contribute to a commercial center.
- Charters for mines are declared, in hopes of finding iron and silver. The region proves to be barren of precious metals, but as luck would have it, extensive, though difficult, veins of iron criss-cross central Amarjian lands.

- Attempts to sweet-talk many of the Angle and Saxon Kingdoms into joining the Kalosi go sour, as conquests of The Emerald Isle have bound them as a loyal, united entity, for now.
- Peaceful contact is not made with the Lombards. As a matter of fact, the skirmishes just west of their territory, combined with their victory over the Gepids, has set them on edge, and the diplomat is sent home in peace. One peace at a time.

- Copper and Coal veins are found and extraction begins.
- A new religion, based on a combination of old Shamanism and new Monotheism, begins.
- Cartography takes a small leap, as leaders pay well for reliable map-work.

- Coinage of currency begins, and soon the Waste-Economy is blooming.
- Studies into metallurgy begin in theory. But with so few learned men in the world, and blacksmiths being too busy being blacksmiths, no progress is made.
- Deeper mines prove catastrophic. Many tunnels collapse and flood, killing a number of utterly disposable slaves.
- Attempts are “brought out” for agriculture and hunting in the north. No one knows what that means.

- Farming estates are established using slash-and-burn extensively. This creates a great deal of surplus crop to feed the Arstotzkan people.
- A new capital spares no expense in its construction, and features solid stonework and palisades.
- New coinage and trade bring money into Arstotzka, and the treasury promises to be restored in short order.
- A north-western settlement is coerced into joining the Artotzkans. The South-east proves more stubborn.
- A search for precious metals is set about, but only iron and coal are found in any respectable amount.

- The Eggman take hold of the region just south. But an unfortunate kerfuffle occurs, as a military expedition to the east encounters a comparable Kalosi troop. However it began, it ends in a series of skirmished from both sides, but no major casualties.
- The north is fortified with a series of bulwarks and militia garrisons. Recent events may prove this wise.

- Nearby settlements are extorted on threat of death. In a way, these vassals are under the control of the Moklaezians.
- Having watched the Black Sea area, it is decided best not to make a move. The Bulgars, while beaten back, still represent a credible opponent, and to the south, Vitalian shows little patience for pagan barbarians.
- A subtle split occurs among the Moklaezians. Two factions, one desiring to settle the area, and make use of the rich land and trade, the other desiring to move on and continue to plunder the landscape.

- A new government is put into work, similar to the old, but the men representing their clans are instead elected by their people, rather than by wealth or lineage.

A permanent marketplace (or bazaar as those of the east would call them) is now being made in Al Amarja for international trade!

@Arstotzka: Al Amarja would like to join both your trade agreement and alliance that you have with both Kickassia and Anatolia. However I wish to modify rule three by stating that while I am willing to trade technology with you, Falcon, and Stalker I also want the rights to not share certain technologies with you three.

How about this, any iron that isn’t being used for the creation of weapons and currency in Al Amarja will be traded along with wood. Our bards and song makers can come by and teach your people their ways but you have to teach one or two cultural arts that your people have to the Al Amarjians. Poisons I don’t feel like trading that those just yet but the totems and effigies remain the same.

Welcome to the alliance, comrade. Arstotzka is more than happy for you to stand alongside us in these uncertain and volatile times.


@Crow of Al Amarja
The oligarchy is happy to see your eagerness to join our alliance however we are disheartened with your unwillingness to cooperative with our mutually agreed treaty. The only compromise is for us to be given the ability to deny you certain technologies as you would do with us.
With this workaround in place Arstotzka would be comfortable with you being apart of our new alliance.

If you agree then long live the quad union.

Glory to Arstotzka.

The Technocracy thanks you for allowing Al Amarja into the union. In fact for this joyfull occasion they wish to suspend their previous statement about denying certain technologies, since that decisions was made in fear that some of them (in particular poison) would be used against the Al Amarjians.

Map of the World

Events:

- Dark times, indeed. 535 sees a series of indiscernible weather events, perhaps comet impacts in the northern hemisphere, or the eruption of Krakatoa. Either way, great drops in temperature, crop failures, and excessive fog permeate the Hemisphere for several years before things return to normal. Such events did nothing to aid the hungry, poor, or the relations of neighbors.

- Justinian decides that Europe has suffered long enough under the shackles of barbarians long enough. Having lost their Latin roots, the Byzantines begin a campaign of reconquest across Africa and Italy. It is not recommended to become involved, for took not even a year for Justinian’s Generals to break the back of the Vandals forever, and the Ostrogoths are most certainly not winning…

- Fortunately, the capital was not largely occupied, and potential slaughter was averted. Dracon warriors manage to rally after a series of unfavorable skirmishes, and in a pitched battle in which the Lombards attempted to destroy a Dracon camp on the mountains, managed to rout the invading Lombards.

- The Warriors plant their butts down. Finally.
- The west is charted for lakes and food. Lakes are found, and it appears that food grows out of the ground.
- A program to promote Chemistry is run. The people are confused and quickly declare the ruling class as a bunch of nerds.
- A historical society within the Tribal leadership takes part in accurate detailing of the ways and history of the Wastelandites.

- Warriors, no longer needed, go to work in the real world with real jobs.
- The nearest settlement is met with a significant force, and offered they surrender or be enslaved. Upon being told “Neither, thank you”, the commander found his orders had no response for that, and left them be.
- Workshops established by the Oligarchy produce reasonable stockpiles of iron products, mainly arms and armor.
- Guilds spring up in the interest of propagating craftsmanship and fine works. It proves practical, as the otherwise useless peasants that can’t grow anything are capable of creating goods for use and export.
- In an attempt to promote… “increased birthrate”… an old pagan goddess of Fertility is brought to light, and includes the use of genital shaped charms and bread, as well as other more… exotic ideas.

- Monarchy occurs after a string of Court-room shankings occur. The King takes the crown by default.

- The Warriors finally settle down among the Cattonians.
- A currency of minted coins is circulated. The universal nature of coins in Europe makes such a much needed effort.
- Formally organized Militias and Guards appear in place of the Warrior Class, drawn mainly from Herdsmen and consist mainly of the Steppe favored Cavalry. Uniform instruction allows for the drilling of small unit tactics, and while perhaps not as effective as a mob that lives to kill, it is far more efficient.
- Roadworks are put into motion. At this point, there is little but worn paths that have been pounded out and trimmed of foliage, but is still a great improvement.
- The mountains to the east prove treacherous to navigate, and the range is rather extensive. Passing them will be no small task.

Elitist Oligarchy

-Average Peasant Class, Average Working Class

- Warriors have earned their retirement into serfdom.
- A new tax law balances how much one pays in based on their expected income. Difficult to manage, but is seen as fair by the lower class. The few elite, however, protest this greatly.
- Several “Schools”, each headed by a master of distinguished knowledge, appear. Few attend however, as the peasants cannot afford to spend time on anything other than their goats and crops.
- Exports of potatoes have a short life, as it is soon made apparent that they are but rocks. Who took all the potatoes? No one. Potatoes aren’t native to this hemisphere.
- Sales of rocks skyrocket, however.
- Peasants are given a raise. But since they do not get paid, they receive nothing. The rich laugh.
- No one knows what Confucianism is, but an Oligarchy of the elite is established, functioning as a plutocracy that doesn’t have to listen to the people.

Plutocracy

-Average Peasant Class, Small Working Class, Average Hunter-Warrior Class

- Plutocracy emerges. Now power is placed not by a man’s ability to kill or his father’s deeds, but by the coin in his pocket, the sharp of his tongue, and the love of his subjects.
- A new plan emerges that promises to mend the cultural rift in the Moklaezians, as the new capital is established, which would divide society into its military Nomads and sedentary Civilians. The plan succeeds at first, but in 536, after a cruelly poor harvest, the Nomads take to their heels in anger, claiming that staying would only starve them. Heading north, they become the independent Laeufers.
- A new capital is placed on the Dniester. While fertile, the river proves too difficult to navigate for the rather seaworthless Moklaezians, owing to its changes in depth and pace along its length. For the time being, it is commercially unsound. Just as well, as proposed trade partners are no longer available.

- The north east is found to be much the same as it was before.
- Grants and charters mean mines for Foznia. Coal is about the only thing in any major excess, though.
- A simple program begins for educating those willing. More practical than a school, it simply exists as a society of paid tutors who learn any who come willing to.

Wastelandites should claim that little city right there, so we can start trading.
