    Aluxian Imperial Diplomatic Channel

    To: Valron, representative of the Nation of Aluxia From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion Honoured sir, May God and the saints bless his majesty, Davros XXII for his acceptance of my nation's offer to help in Aluxia's troubling times. I hope, and indeed pray, that these talks will come to a successful conclusion, both for Aluxia and, if you forgive me, for the Naxian Republic as well. I recognise that until they move further forward, your nation must continue with its defensive measures. Until they have been brought to the table or are willing to make meaningful concessions, it would be wise to keep viewing your neighbour as hostile, at least for the time being. Whilst it would be a show of good faith to do otherwise, if this history between your two nations is as fraught with hostility as you suggest, then any other course of action may be foolish. I will work with his Imperial Majesty, Kommodos III, my Logothesion and the diplomatic channels available to me to contact the government of the Naxian Republic and make it clear that the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion wishes to intercede in order to bring this current crisis to a peaceful and equitable conclusion. It is often said, far too often, that a bad peace is worse than a conflict, but history shows that this is rarely actually the case. If war can be averted, then that is a victory in and of itself, and is far more pleasing to God than the spilling of blood, needlessly or otherwise. Even if these talks reach a fruitless conclusion, then at least your nation can be assured that it acted as best that it could to prevent the outbreak of war. However, the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion will strive to make sure that that is not the outcome of them. I welcome the construction of an embassy within your glorious capital. I have started talks with the Eparkhos of Tagmatika, the mayor of our illustrious capital, in order to find a suitable building to house your nation's emissaries. If one isn't found, then construction can be started on one that is more suitable to the needs of your nation. We will be able to provide craftspeople who will make sure that this building is in keeping with the surroundings of our ancient capital and will stand as a testament to the friendship between Tagmatium and Aluxia. I have also discussed who to represent Tagmatium in Aluxia with the head of the Skrinion ton Barbaron and I believe we have found a suitable representative in the form of one Nikefora Ktenas. I will forward her qualifications and a summary of her career up until now, in case that either yourself or his majesty, Davros XXII, feels that she is unsuitable for the job. In which case, a more appropriate candidate will be found. I hope that this will be the start of a long, glorious and, above all, friendly relationship between our two ancient and glorious nations. May God guide Aluxia along a path of peace and grant your nation, and Davros XXII, the strength to see his people through these troubling times.

    To: Valron, representative of the Nation of Aluxia From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion Honoured sir, I do hope that your are able to convince his majesty that Tagmatine intercession is the best course of action. If necessary, if and when your are able to convince your monarch that it is a good idea, the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion can then approach the Naxian Republic with the plan of third party talks. This may convince them that Tagmatium has the best intents for both your nation and theirs. It may be if the situation that is brewing with the Naxian Republic is different from the pattern that they have followed previously, then perhaps this is a time to embrace a different tack, too. It could be that a foreign intervention – that is, as a third party with a fresh set of eyes and a perspective uncoloured by a long history of ill-feeling, rather than anything military – might be the very thing that provides a break in this cycle of violence that seems to have, sadly, become a cemented part of your nations' interactions. I realise that this may sound like a basic lesson, but I do not mean to be condescending. Peace is something that must be treasured and striven for, rather than brushed aside readily, for it is a gift given to us all by God and must be treated as such. We give praise to Him by holding it dear and warfare, of any sort, is a rejection of His gifts. The Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion sees that it is the Naxian Republic that is taking the first steps towards war at this time, or at the very least are attempting to sour relations between your esteemed nation and their own nation. Perhaps this is in order to score points, so to speak, for their own ends, such as distracting their populace from internal discord or unrest. If his majesty does not wish for Tagmatine involvement in the break down of relations between Aluxia and her neighbour, then there is little the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion can do other than accept that. Even if it may cause hardship and suffering amongst your people that otherwise might have be averted. After all, self-determination of a people, or state, is a key tenet of international relations, even if it is sometimes ignored, wilfully or otherwise. However, to an extent times have changed since your nation withdrew from the world. What may have once have been localised warfare, limited by the technologies of a millennium ago, will now undoubtedly have an impact on the whole world. Whether due to airspace becoming closed, trade routes and sea lanes disrupted or fleeing refugees coming to other lands, even a brush fire war affects countries half a world away. It may come to it that the Naxian Republic or even Aluxia finds foreign attention unavoidable. I pray that if this does happen, it is on your terms and on an even basis. On the subject of an exchange of emissaries, once his majesty, Davros XXII has accepted our offer of an exchange, I will be able to liaise with the Skrinion ton Barbaron, the Tagmatine diplomatic service, in order to find a suitable individual to represent Tagmatium in your honoured nation. I can assure you that his Imperial Majesty, Kommodos III, by the Grace of Christ the God, the Agios Basileos kai Autokrator Arhomanion, is fully aware of our correspondence and I am acting with his full blessing. May God protect your noble and esteemed monarch and guide him down a path to peace. Eugenios Goulielmos, Megas Logothetes of the Logothesion of Foreign Affairs of the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion

    Aluxian Imperial Diplomatic Channel

    To: Valron, representative of the Nation of Aluxia From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion Honoured sir, It pleases God that it falls upon the devout and faithful Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion to be the first to welcome your noble nation as it takes its first steps onto the world stage after so much time in isolation. Making contact with the world is a brave step after so long in the dark. Undoubtedly, the world has changed much since your nation closed its borders. Our nations may have much in common – both of our nations have lasted more than one thousand years, as the lands of Arhomania have stood since before Aluxia withdrew from the world around it. Many other nations, weaker nations that have not had the faith in God that the people of Tagmatium have have long since fallen. It is likely that your nation and people have witnessed these events from afar, cautiously seeing how they might impact upon your own affairs. It may be considered courageous to attempt to take a stand and divert world events to one's own aims but, perhaps, it is even more courageous to hold oneself apart from them. Seeing how the troubles of the world may play out and choosing when to be involved, rather than diving headlong without a second thought, demonstrates a thoughtful and wise nature, one that is guided by ruler and government that has its peoples best interests at heart. In time, it is hoped by the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion that the relationship between our two great and ancient nations may become strong, cherished by both of our peoples. To this end, it is suggested that our honoured nations start with an exchange of representatives, so that we may get to know each other better. From there, perhaps then we can investigate whether a more formal relationship is where we wish to go, such as a trade deal that is fair and advantageous to the people of both of our great nations. It does, however, concern the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion that the one of the first events that your nation has become involved in appears to be an armed stand off with a neighbour. The Logothesion of Foreign Affairs, as well as intelligence assets, have reported that your nation has regularly had such run ins with the Naxian Republic, recently and throughout history. This may not be the best starting point for your nation's entry into the family of nations of Eurth. As such, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion is willing to offer itself as a third party to see a peaceful and equitable end to the current tensions between Aluxia and the Naxian Republic. Peace, after all, can be a rare and fragile thing. At times, it seems difficult to maintain it, but if we all work together, it can mean prosperity for all. May the light of Christ guide your honoured nation in these troubled times and may God bless your ruler, Davros XXII, and the people of Aluxia. Eugenios Goulielmos, Megas Logothetes of the Logothesion of Foreign Affairs of the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion

    Ahranaian Foregin Ministry

    To: the General Secretary of the Socialist Federation of Ahrana From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion General Secretary Alexsandra Misha Lars Core, It is with surprise that the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion noted the deposing and arrest of the previous General Secretary of Ahrana. If the crimes that have been placed at his door are true, then the Socialist Federation has done the right thing by removing him from office. It was, perhaps, the only thing that your country could do, given the circumstances and nature of his crimes. It is hoped that, in time, the Socialist Federation normalises its relations with the rest of the world. The Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion sees that this trial of the previous General Secretary is a step towards this, although it is hoped that any investigation goes deeper than that, if evidence is found that one bad apple has indeed spoiled the whole basket. That they had gone on for quite so long, and were quite so severe in nature, suggests that either Mr Ivanoff was a formidable master-mind or that the issues were endemic in both the previous monarchy and the regime that he ran. That he is now being forced to answer to them, and that his removal was peaceful in nature, means that Ahrana is transitioning to a normal and functioning country after a such a period of turmoil and bloodshed. It is the first step towards Ahrana once again joining the family of nations of Eurth. The circumstances in which the old monarchy was toppled are still confused and the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion suggests that the story surrounding it has become even more dubious and murky, since the clearest account of it came from the previous General Secretary himself. As such, it means that that version of events may not even be the true ones. Despite the fact that this may open wounds that are not yet entirely healed, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion suggests that you would do well to consider an international investigation into the true circumstances surrounding the revolution – if Mr Ivanoff was the sole perpetrator of these crimes, or that there were others involved. That many seemed to be prepared to aid and abet him, even if the former General Secretary murdered them – or had them murdered – suggests that he may not be the only one responsible. Due to this, a full and frank investigation could be the only way that the ghosts of your nation's revolution are laid to rest and peace finally comes to the people of Ahrana. On that note, it seems that the Socialist Federation has finally seen sense and reduced its support for the pariah nation of Derthalen. That Ahrana had seceded control of its own territory to a nation that could only be considered as barbarian and backwards was foolish in the extreme – that it has taken the Socialist Federation until now to realise this shows how the mismanagement of the previous General Secretary had blinded the people and government of Ahrana to what was right and what was wrong. Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion hopes that any economic ties to those savages will be cut quickly. If not, then the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion may consider enacting sanctions in order to remind the Socialist Federation that entreating with such nations only encourages them to act against the peace and prosperity of the entire world.

    Andallan Foreign Relations

    I'd be up for starting to have decent foreign relations. At the moment, Tagmatium is possibly pretty isolationist. I'm edging towards assuming that the Greater Holy Empire has at least some form of representative in most other nations, and vice versa. If your countries can stand the overweening arrogance, that is. You dog.
