@Authoria and Cattonian Republic: Would you two like to make a trade agreement with Al Amarja? Also Cattonia I wouldn’t make a trade deal with you because the distance between us was to far but with borders now so close I believe a trade agreement is now possible for us.

After I get this whole war thing sorted out, I’d love to start trading.

@Cattonian Republic
Well, if you would be so kind, I’d like to kind of work this out peacefully. I’ll try to do whatever it takes to resolve this, as I’m not really in the best shape to fight right now, and I have a feeling the Madom Khanate is going to be causing trouble for me pretty soon.

I think we can negotiate something via PM.

I see you’ve been following. There are still slots open, no longer bound by the Culture rule.

Because I know you like New Zealand.

I’m thinking of just spectating, this time. As much as I have enjoyed participating in NatRP, I want to focus on other projects at the moment.

Though if I wasn’t so busy, I’d make either Obristan or United Federation. Just to give the immigration officers in Arstotska more work to deal with

- Astoran forces continue to drive through Maldania, as many of their troops are directed north towards the capital.
- Bloom forges emerge in Astora, allowing large amounts of steel to be produced.
- Astora already has a currency of coins.
- Open donation towards the needy proves… small. Peasants can give little, and the wealthy aren’t very much towards giving freely. The Bright Book says “jolly cooperation”, not “free hand-outs”.
- A national bank is chartered and established. This novel business of holding money for others smooths the transition of currency among Astorans of wealth, and small “fees” for this service quickly add up to benefit the Theocracy.

- A rudimentary printing press is developed, though fairly crude and difficult to work with, in the long run it cuts the time and effort of producing a single volume to as little as a fourth.
- More schools are built to teach more folk. It isn’t a matter of not enough buildings though. Attendance is low because it is simply not within the financial means of the majority to go off and learn instead of work constantly to survive.
- More cults or similar appear. Maybe. No one really knows. In fact, no one really knows who runs the country. All anyone knows is that every now and again, some one knocks at the door demanding the monthly tax.
- New efforts to investigate about the supernatural, as well as more secular knowledge, leads to the conclusion that any new information to be found is certainly beyond the Amarjan borders.

- Work continues on “Fire Powder”, in hopes of making the blast more substantial.
- Use for explosives is few and far between, simply being too impotent to perform practically.
- The Knights of Shalour reject royal orders to play sneak-thief. No one becomes a Knight to skulk among peasants, and a Knight answers to God before his Lord.
- Instead, the usual groups of unsavory characters are sent out to fish out information. Denmark, of its own, is on par with Kalos in all but size, while France is head and shoulders above Kalos and Denmark put together, assuming they are fighting the English at the time.
- Caravans bearing trebuchet-shaped cargo travel from Moklaezia to Authoria. It is insisted that they are cows.

- Sachielians should find somewhere to settle quickly, if survival is the objective.
- A gift for the Cattonians, however, sees the capital burn to the ground. Pyrrhic? Perhaps.

- Lighter armors of metal prove a futile search, as the iron scales of Lamellar and Laminar armors are as sophisticated as can be.
- A product of the east, with a little ingenuity, comes into Cattonian hands: the repeating crossbow. Though by demand of its design it is far weaker and much more difficult to aim than the pedestrian bow or ordinary crossbow, it does have an unprecedented rate of fire and is much easier to handle.
- A Maldanian counter-attack is successfully repelled, and the capital falls into Cattoninan hands. Ambushes become common place as forces progress.
- Nationally sponsored delivery systems come into place, merely groups of horsemen to send and carry packages or messages.
- Sachielia falls entirely, as the natives flee into the east. Sore losers, perhaps, as fire and explosives are set across the capital, causing it to burn to rubble.

- Spies have discovered that Cattonia and Astora are planning to invade Maldania.
- What little working men remain are set upon producing a large number of arms and armor.
- Reduced to a holding in the east, forces begin setting up extensive ambushes against Cattonian forces, slowing their progress.

- Special exports of “Cows” are directed to Authoria. “Cows”.
- Not much is gleamed by spies in the east. Though they can clearly see the devices of foreigners, their designs are much more difficult to ascertain.
- Missionaries make slow progress in the Novgorod lands. Respectably adherent to the Heirs, as well as fairly substantial economic status, gives little for Moklazeians to work with.

- New techniques of cutting softer stones and paving wider paths with them produces extensive “highways” that provide caravans with an extremely stable route.
- New ideas regarding the bow and arrow are few and far between, but many focus on improving the arrowhead.
- Extensive work is put into the guest houses of foreign advisers and diplomats, providing lavish treatment one would see for a (lesser) Khan.
- Horlves are hunted down by the score, and soon the southern herds of the creatures are sparse, to say the least. They cannot even be eaten, for they are certainly not Halal. Even under extreme punishment, it is sometimes heard of the creatures being smuggled east.
- Forces are retracted from Persia more open areas where the extensive Horsemen of Madom have the advantage. The Persians do not take the bait, however, and instead head through the eastern mountains, where horsemen are unable to effectively deal with Persian Archers and infantry.
- The Madomi armies push deeper into Foznia, as organized resistance is no where to be found.

- Calls for Heretics and Witches from beyond Amarja are met with few, but only for lack of individuals: beyond the border, such peoples are poached for their thoughts.
- Tourism is not a thing. The few who have the means to spend a month or two without working tend to embellish their own homes, not to mention Amarja is widely considered a no-man’s land.

- In an attempt to lower military costs, members are exempted from taxes and given a pay grade after a time. Which makes the expense of the army go up.

The Khanate operates much differently, using extensive skirmish tactics and traditional mounted archers, feigning retreats and surrounding the enemy.

- Across Europe and North Africa, children gone missing are reported in scores, mostly young boys, but the occasional girl or babe is gone too.

- The bloom forge is developed, allowing for the production of large amounts of raw steel.
- A three piece item: an iron tube, a stone ball, and a charge of gunpowder, creating what amounts to a crude cannon. Such items begin to replace the artillery pieces formerly mounted on ships.
- A token force of ships is sent far west to explore the waters beyond the Emerald Isles, long thought to lead to the edge of the world. However, an interesting turn of fate occurs; foreign ships surround the commercial boats of Kalos and force their course north, where they are led to make port on new shores. Their hosts, a people with strange features, though speaking a distinctly Norse language, introduce themselves as members of the Court of Kaldrvan, and say that the fleet was heading for extremely dangerous waters, home to nigh-unstoppable monsters. After a few weeks, the Kalos fleet returns, no worse for wear.

- New methods of preserving the strength of soil promote greater harvests in Astotzka.
- A national bank. Bankers. Cash flow.
- Obscene numbers of Ideology books are printed and spread around. Some even end up outside the border, where peasants use them as insulation.
- Excess military engines are marketed. Few are bought, however. Most people just build such items when they are needed.

- Doctors decide that knowing how to fix their patients would be a great help, and begin looking into medicinal methods.
- A national bank promotes the further growth of the elite class, which is becoming almost dangerously powerful…
- The Novgorod Republic is substantially powerful, though caught off-guard at the moment. Rich off of fur-trades, the city can afford extensive armies built of Mercenary Crossbowmen, as well as drafted peasants in score.

So I’m currently trying to find a means of expressing how I’m feeling about the Moklaezian’s actions, something along the lines of ‘why’ and ‘could you not do that’

I’m getting nowhere in that regard.

Would anyone mind helping me properly articulate my emotion towards this situation?

You know, I seem to remember that all my current problems are the result of one nation’s very rude invasion. I wonder who it was……OH YEAH.

Note: This is in no way a formal declaration of war. Please do not invade me and attack with pointy things again.
On another note, would the Cattonian Republic care to trade with poor old Sachielia?

You can have all the manure that our beautiful, well-fed cows produce, to use as fertilizer.

I feel like I should be offended by that, but my country is in such poor shape I can’t refuse your offer. I await your manure.

I have noticed that none of the Heirs of the Sun have access to mass printing. If you feel like controlling your people enlightening your people with the truth of your religion, the Zonkerites would be happy to mass produce your holy book for export.

Wouldn’t it make more sense if I was to trade the secrets of printing to them then having their books exported from across the map? Plus my printing machines are updated. So if the nations of the sun are interested in trading with Al Amarja for the designs of the print machine just put it down on your next turn.

Just forget this post please I wrote this one while I was still half asleep so I wasn’t thinking straight. instead I’m offering the same deal as Classic Rock, but only to Astora, Authoria, and Cattonian. Sachielia to far away for me to even make any sort of deal with.

Also sorry for the doublepost but I felt that I needed to clear up that mistake.

Moklaezia enticed the Republic to take Kalosi Finland

It is at this moment, that a very awkward silence befell the Kalos/Moklaezian border

Saying “the shit hit the fan” would be a huge understatement for what just happened.

I’ve had two opposing parties approach me, either one asking me to attack the other. Saying this is getting fun would also be an understatement.

The outcome to this situation could go either way depending on which choice benefits Arstotzka the most, I know saying this has probably damaged my trustworthy reputation but then again…trusting Arstotzka is a risky move in itself

I like how we all conveniently ignored the fact that pyromancer pedophiles are probably stealing children.

In response to the pyro-pedo’s. I can only imagine that Al Amarja is cooking up some nasty shit.


@Al Amarja,

I’ve been meaning to pay you back for the printing tech from earlier, unfortunately I don’t have the tech you requested right now so this one will have to do.

I’m sending you Superior Infrastructure, hopefully you can put this to some good use. Expect further techs to arrive in the future, Arstotzka does not forget it’s dear Al Amarja

Haha. Some pryomanic pedos shows up and right out the bat everyone thinks that the small nation of heretics, outsiders, and general weirdos is responsible. Well ever considered that just maybe we’re about as stumped about that as the rest of you. But I will admit that’s one mystery most Al Amarjians would most likely try to investigate.


@Arstotzka

Thank you for that and in good timing too since we are planing to boost our defenses since World War 1 is pretty much inevitable.
