  1. To: The Foreign Minister of the Republic of Iverica @Iverica From: Jor Hrovson, Minister of Foreign Affairs - For Her Premiership, Kariana Vinterness To the foreign minster of the republic of Iverica, I send my greetings on behalf of Her Premiership, Kariana Viterness. It is with her blessing that I reach out to you on behalf of the Republic of Stalgora and the Stalgoran People. Your nation is a great power on the continent we call home, and many look to your nation as a leader both here and abroad. As our world changes and access to the the Argic sea becomes more regular and reliable, Stalgora looks to the rest of the wurld to find people who share our ideals and our goals. Iverica represents not only these characteristics, but a common heritage on our continent. As our nation pushes past the troubles of our past, we look to a future where we can come to the wurld stage in both unity and in fellowship with our allies. Iverica and your people - we feel - share that common interest and that desire for diplomatic and peaceful resolution to the challenges and tensions the wurld faces. It is with these facts in mind that the Premiere has directed me to reach out to you and your office in hopes of establishing a dialogue and diplomatic relations. We humbly seek a permanent embassy in your nation at a location that best suits your government, and invite you to establish your own in our capital. I know I speak for all of the Stalgora when I say that I hope this message finds you well, and we look forward to establishing a dialogue with your nation in hopes of benefiting our two people and the greater wurld. Most Respectfully,
  2. To: The Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomanion @Tagmatium Rules From: Jor Hrovson, Minister of Foreign Affairs - For Her Premiership, Kariana Vinterness On behalf of My Premiere, It my great pleasure to respond to your most generous message. On behalf of the people of Stalgora, it is a pleasure to receive a message from your great nation and its people, and while - as you said so well - mountains and seas separate our people, we both call this wurld home. We are both subject to our own actions, and both feel the repercussions of the things our people visit on one another. By that very fact, I am compelled by duty to your people as much as mine to reach out in the face of your generous message. While you accurately note the harsh beauty of our land, we welcome you and your representatives in our state and look proudly towards the opportunity to build a line of communication between our two great nations and great people. At the request of my Premiere, we have enclosed the initial steps for establishing an embassy in our national capital, and our laws governing diplomatic immunity and sovereignty of embassies built in our territory. As with our people, your representatives will also enjoy protection under Stalgoran Law in the face of criminal acts executed by our people. However, I would remind you that we will not sign broad reaching extradition treaties and extradition of Stalgoran citizens will be on a case by case basis. We look forward to establishing full diplomatic relations, and what we can achieve together as partners in peace. Most Respectfully,

  8. Part 2 - Bring Me The Sea A Profile of the Fishing Industry in Stalgora's Distant North October 7th, 2019 . The sea spray catches in his beard and follows the lines of his face from his brow as the waves crash against the small boat. The sun climbs slowly from the horizon. It won't get far. Fall has arrived and sunlight will become fleeting until night takes over. Its the end of the fishing season and the pressure is on. "Not enough fish these days..."Vaun mutters, looking at the half filled nets being drug up from the depths. "Big boys scoop them all up before I can get any." He adds, almost as if he's just remembered that someone else is on the boat with him. He frowns at the horizon where the large factories churn away. They can stay at sea for days and never stop work, and Havgard's lawmakers have done little to stop the advance of Stalgora's vastly lucrative fishing industry. Back in town, the impact of the national corporate policies reach out of the sea into local shops and local markets. "That was Tor Anderson's shop." Vaun says, gesturing towards a boarded up storefront that's faded lettering still reads 'Grocery.' "Closed down not long after the big boxes opened up in Tovenhal." There are dozens of store fronts up and down main street that have shared the same fate, and for many of the people still living in Vintergard, the economic side is the other edge of the sword that is killing their town. With the younger population leaving and shoppers moving towards the larger retail stores or even internet purchases, another set of livelihoods are dying at the same time the small scale fishing industry is. The corporate friendly policies adopted by the Eld administration, while popular in the major cities and with younger voters, are a major strain on traditional sectors in the Stagloran countryside. Vaun's story is playing out across the entirety of the country. Germanic small scale farming has collapsed in the face of industrial scale farming operations in the Hinterland, and machine shops that once served local businesses and industry have closed as industrial powerhouses like Kovat centralize services and make it next to impossible for local workers to get the tools they need to repair their equipment. While some industries are adapting and small scale and locally produced items have seen a resurgence with younger populations, those jobs are still focused in the larger cities where the rest of the population is migrating to. Small towns like Vintergard still can't take advantage of those opportunities because people simply don't visit anymore. - Defiance - The day comes to an end like all the others. The sun set hours ago and the boat sits bobbing in the harbor. Vaun's boots are propped against the door frame and crowned in sea salt that crystallizes on their yellow, glossy surface. His pipe - as much a character in this story as Vaun himself - is lit and emits puffs of smoke with each long draw that Vaun takes. "Nope. Never leaving. I'll die either in this chair, on my boat, or somewhere in between." His voice is carries an air of dark humor as he considers his words. He is a drying breed and he knows it. Everyone who calls Vintergard home knows it. Its a stubborn adherence to tradition that weaves itself through every Stalgoran in some form or another that keeps Vaun and others here in this long forgotten fishing town on the edge of nowhere. As my time comes to an end here, I share a final whiskey with Vaun and thank him for his time, and I truly mean it. Time is the most precious thing out here. Towns and small scale businesses don't seem to have much of it left as industry in Stalgora shifts, and soon the sun will set on people like Vaun and places like Vintergard permanently.

  10. HISTORY 0500-1200 - Nomadic Tribes and Indigenous People Settled by nomadic tribes thousands of years ago, the region that would become known as Stalgora is nestled at the top of the world - nicknamed the Crown of Eurth by the locals. With three major historic regions that have an interwoven history, Stalgora proper didn't exist in its current form until Edvard the Conqueror unified the Kingdoms of Stalgora, the Slavic Tribes of the Havden Penninsula, and the Germanic Warlords of the Hinterland in 1628. The first settles of the region were the ocean clans of the Scandinavian people traveling up the coast from the west. The first tribes landed in the region that would one day become known as Vadagard, and the Vanfjord. Vadagard tribesmen were the first to build a permanent settlement in the region, farming the harsh land and carving their gods into the stone walls of the fjord - the ancient sites known as the Jotuns. Over the next couple centuries, new tribes sprung out of the Vadagard, expanding up and down the coast. The vast fjords and mountains were named for the great serpent in Norse mythology - the Jormungandr. Over the centuries, these tribes grew into their own regional powers up and down the coast. 1200-1600- Rise of the Six Kingdoms The majority of Stalgora's history can be traced back to the Scandinavian Earls who ruled the vast, harsh, and rocky landscape that gave the nation its name. From the early settlement of the region to the expansion of the Scandinavian tribes in the harsh area, the states of Vintergard, Scandinaviskrike, Jotunfjell, Vadagard, Rondheim, and Riagard grew to dominate the landscape. These historic Earldoms often unified in battle against their neighboring Germanic and Slavic states, frequently engaged in loosely defined conflicts that would spring up and die down every quarter of a century. The Scandinavian people of the region were unique among their brethern in that they held both a strong naval tradition and organized military. Driven by their climate, unification in the face of the harsh world led to a strong established aristocratic hierarchy and unique to the region building programs. Among some historians, the people of the region have been referred to as the "High Nords" for their advancements in both navigation, engineering, and science. It was these attributes that helped build the dominant powers in the region. However, infighting was still common. No rivalry was greater than those of Vadagard and Scandinaviskrike. Representing the "old" and the "new" (relatively speaking as both were hundreds of years old at this point), the harsh plain people of the Scandinaviskrike and the powerful mountain warriors of the Vadagard rallied the other great Earldoms to their causes of the course of dozens of conflicts from 1200-1600. That all changed when Edvard of House Brandt rose to power in Vadagard. 1612-1678- The Reign of Edvard the Conqueror Edvard Brandt was an unassuming heir to a drunk of a father. Rising to the throne at a young age following his father's untimely death, Edvard was quickly thrown into chaos when - seeing blood in the water - the aging Earl of Scandinaviskrike -Tovin Holt - invaded the eastern fold in an attempt to conquer Jotunfjell. Answering the call of the other great house, Edvard rose his army with unprecedented swiftness. However, the attack had come at a calculated time and as ice pack settled into the Argic Sea, Edvard was without a way to relieve the besieged Jotunfjell. The only answer was to move south and around the great Jormungandr mountains. It was this deep push beyond the mountains - to a region very few had seen - that Edvard and his soldiers discovered the Hinterland. The vast, fertile region was a veritable paradise to the Nords, and the campaign left Edvard curious about this "Gronnverden." Following the retreat of the Scandinaviskrike host, the Jotunfjell people pledged their fidelity and loyalty to Edvard. However, during the ceremony, Edvard broke with tradition and demanded that they swear their loyalty to Vadagard, not Edvard. By pledging their loyalty to the city and its heirs, rather than just Edvard, the bond would extend beyond Edvard's life. With the massive Vadagard host beyond their walls, the Jotunfjell Earl had no choice. King Edvard was crowned upon his return to the capital. -MORE TO FOLLOW-
  11. GEOGRAPHY Stagora is situated on the edge of the Argic circle and on the north eastern edge of the Argic plate. Three climates dominate the landscape of the region - The Argic Mountain climates of the Jormungandr Range, the Temperate climate of the Hinterland, and the Argic Tundra of the Havgen Peninsula. The relative harhness of all but the Hinterland region has contributed heavily to the current population of the nation despite its relatively large landmass. -MORE TO FOLLOW-
  12. ETYMOLOGY The name Stalgora is derived from the Dravian Slavic name for the Jormungandr Mountains - Stalgora - meaning "Steel Mountains." Once a name invoked in fear by the Dravian locals during the invasion of King Edvard the conqueror, the name was adopted by the new King as a badge of honor follow his conquest of the Havden Peninsula. It was formally adopted by the Republic following the People's Rebellion and the rise of the democratic state under the new Federal Republic system.

  15. The Federal Republic of Stalgora Capital: Havgard Capital Location: Protected Bay City off the Argic Sea Factbook: Current Version News Link: Courier - Carried Around the World Culture: Historically Dominated by Scandinavian People with a intermingling of Slavic and German Culture - Slavic Predominant on the Havgen Peninsula and the Germanic Tribes of the Hinterland Climate: Frigid mountain coastlines with protected Fjords and Bays which give way to and protected a sea warmed inner region known as the Hinterland - primary farmland and open pit mining region. Sparsly populated. Location: Proposed Location - Includes the territory of their long time rivals and enemies - The Scandinaviskrike. History 0500-1200 The Nomadic Scandinavian Tribes- The Scandinavian tribes settled the region that would become known as Stalgora. Giving the mountain range the name Jormungandr after the mythical beast of Nordic Lore. The main tribe, Vadagard, established itself early on as one of the key centerpieces of the region. The other Earldoms - including what would become The Skandinaviskrike - grew around this same time as colonies of Vadagard proper. 1200-1612 The Six Great Earldoms - Out of the various tribes, the six great Earldoms grew. Vadagard was the greatest and seat of power in the Jormungandr region. Its chief rival Scandinaviskgard - ruled the eastern reach in the great frozen plains of the Nordhavet. The other four earldoms - Vintergard, Rondheim, Jotunfjell, and Riagard - swayed between loyalty to the two greater powers. Traditions of swearing fielty and loyalty to an individual, not a lineage or state - meant loyalties only lasted as long as the people who had made them lived. Wars were fought, and lands changed hands. Mostly, the powers grew in both technology, science, and size. 1612-1671 The Rise of Edvard the Conqueror - Edvard the Conqueror was the greatest leader of Stalgoran history. Through his reign, he expanded Vadagard's influence to rule over the 5 other Earldoms as King. He conquered the Hinterland, bringing the Germanic tribes into the fold. He also conquered the Havgen Peninsula, marrying a Slavic beauty and naming his kingdom Stalgora - the Slavic name for the region. The House of Brandt would rule for ages to come. 1671-1858 The Golden Age of Kings - The Golden ages of kings saw the consolidating of the great power of the Stalgoran Monarchy. Vadagard became a veritable fortress of palaces of the great houses and power was consolidated from the traditional homes to the capital city. One holdout were the houses loyal to the Earl of Skandinaviskgard. The former rivals of the Brandt house continued to hold the monarchy in contempt, particularly in both their inclusion and incorporation of Germanic and Slavic culture into theirs - despite the fact that both ethnic groups were limited to the working class. As this rivalry continued to fester, it ended in Civil War. 1858-1861 The War of the Two Crowns - In 1858, Skandinaviskgard declared its independence from Stalgora and established its own monarchy with Ashelm as its capital. Over the course of three years, the region between the Hinterland and the Eiranfjell became fertile with the dead as the two sides fought a stalemate of a war. Finally, after three years, Stalgora and Skandinaviskgard reached a truce and a unsteady peace was established between the two powers. 1861-1900 The birth of Industry and the Revolution - As the industrial Revolution began to pick up pace, shifting demographics and corporate power challenged the aristocratic foundations of the nation. As the nation established itself as an industrial powerhouse in the region (one rich in titanium, iron, coal, and oil), the power began to shift from the wealthy commoners running the corporate industries and the traditional power holders among the aristocracy. This shifting dynamic created tensions in the government. Attempting to assert some control again, the Monarchy and the aristocracy levied increasing taxes on both the corporations and the citizens. Finally, the tensions reached a tipping point. 1900 The Birth of a Republic - With a hungry population, it took very little to shift the dynamic. A people's revolution funded by the over taxed corporations, the military largely shifted their support to the commoners and their goals. With little support and almost completely eroded power, the Monarchy capitulated. The Aristocratic households were sacked and the "old wealth" transferred to the state. The monarchy heritages were allowed to keep some semblance of power, and as the capital moved to the bay city of Havgard, Vadagard became the decadent and decaying seat of the old aristocratic houses. -More Developing-
