  1. To: Trade Minister Leo J. Conway of the @Sancti Imperii Catholico From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomanion To his Eminence Archbishop Salius, through Leo J. Conway, Trade Minister of the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum Your Eminence, Salvia and Ahromaneia come from the same stock, although we have drifted apart over the intervening years. Perhaps too far apart, as both the Salvian and Arhomaniki people still share much with each other. Both of our great nations hold Christ's teachings above all and, although perhaps it could be considered that there may be some variations in how these are espoused by our nations, it is the love of God that shines through. Not only do we share faith in Christ, but our two nations also have a common heritage – it was, after all, Arhomaneia where Liosous set sail from in order to spread the word of God to foreign shores. And truly he did, as Salvia has stood strong ever since. In an ideal world, these ties alone would be strong enough in the face of adversity. However, the current mood of Eurth appears to be a darkening one. Nations that tread the path of righteousness such as ours need to cooperate, in order to strengthen the ties between Christian nations, as well as to make sure that our ancient civilisation can weather any storm that does wash against us. A first step would be to consider our nations' economic ties. Easing trade between our nations will undoubtedly work towards strengthening both of our nations, as well as helping our citizens understand each other better. Even at the moment, our nations do undertake a considerable amount of trade with each other, but this could undoubtedly be improved, to the benefit of both of our people. For example, passion fruit from Salvia are regularly found on the shelves in supermarkets in the Megas Agios Basileia, and mobile phones manufactured in your nation are commonly used by Arhomaioi. Wine is often bought and drunk by the people in Deopolis or Minotia and textiles from Arhomaneia are sold in Salvia. The Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion feels that our nations ought to consider easing the tariffs that are regularly levelled against the imports from foreign countries, as well as viewing any trade restrictions that might be put against the produce of our respective nations. It may also be considered by the Logothesion ton Kommerkiarionikou, the Ministry for Trade, that to show that the Megas Agios Basileia is willing to open our arms to our friends in Salvia that the fees charged on Salvian-flagged ships passing through the canal between the Raga Sea and the Krankes Thalassa, the Ranke Seas, will be reduced, in order to facilitate trade between our nations. This, however, be subject to the agreements that we are able to make, and what might be reciprocated by the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum. We will have much to discuss in any talks between myself, my government and representatives from your nation. Similarly, at a future date, it may be for the worth of our nations to look at visa restrictions between our nations. May God's light shine upon your nation and your people, Takitos Khalkeos, Megas Logothetes of the Logothesion ton Kommerkiarionikou of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomanion
  2. Kill them. For the Lord knows those that are His own.
  3. I presume we'll change the names of the councils?
  4. The biggest problem is with running his nation without his permission. If someone can get his permission, then that's fair enough. If not, it's a bit shitty and this has caused problems in the past, with regards to people saying that their IP was being stolen. I believe @PyeMcGowan got @Theodoria's permission for the Auraid Bay thing that's going on.
  5. It could be done sometime after the thread? I've seen a couple of nations who weren't in the Laren Environmental Conference have ratified the convention after the fact. I think.
  6. Happy birthday, @Ide Jima!
  7. Great work! I think we've needed this. Whilst I'm not a member of the actual convention, I imagine I can retroactively be a signatory, if at a later date than the RP takes place at?
  8. Tagmatium will certainly monitor how things progress.
  9. Could it end up being more commonly used as an exonym for your nation or people?
  10. Since one of the key or most obvious tenets of my brand is the lack of icons or religious imagery, I'd go for the "iconoclastic church". Or "Tagmatine church". But I suppose that is a bit generic.
  11. I'm going to flag @Aluxia and @Greater Serbia in this, as the former was converted to my nation's faith by missionaries and the latter has the same vague Orthodox Christianity as some of the rest of us.
  12. No, not especially. It'll have been mentioned a fair amount. It'll be easy enough to either edit older posts if and when I find the time and go with the new terminology in the future.
  13. In fairness, my shit is basically lazy worldbuilding. It comes from a time when I was much younger and didn't put a lot of thought into this sort of thing. I'd likely not do what I did now, but working from a place of almost fourteen years of writing gives me little choice.
  14. And what will you do when I start messing with your coup?
  15. To: Ana Codrianu, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Greater Queendom of @Suverina From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomanion Minister Codrianu, Despite our recent disagreements, which are now happily years in the past, the Greater Queendom of Suverina has always been a close neighbour and a great friend of the Arhomaioi. Our nations share a border and a common history, one that goes beyond recent mere diplomatic spats and into the distant past. Many are the times our nations have cooperated and not just for the good of ourselves, or Europa, but Eurth as a whole. The gift that your great nation has chosen to present to the Megas Agios Basileia is one that has obviously been closely considered – the tact that the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion, the Imperial Government, has taken in recent years is one of conservation and environmentalism. After all, man was appointed as God's steward on Eurth, so the decisions that we make and the actions that we undertake need to demonstrate this, that we our preserving God's gift for future generations. Indeed, the choice of Aurochsen shows this. There are no breeding Aurochsen within Arhomaneia. Sadly, the last was slain many hundreds of years ago. The Logothesion ton Agelon, the Ministry for the Environment, has been pursuing a policy of re-wilding in recent years, where practicable, in areas that would benefit from the re-introduction of both large prey species and large predators. Obviously, this cannot be done everywhere – despite the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion's preference for environmentalism, the impact upon parts of Arhomaneia that are primarily pastoral must be considered. Although wolves or leopards may only take few sheep from a flock, those are still more than otherwise. A programme for breeding the Occidental Bison, the subspecies of bison that used to be widespread across Tagmatium in years past, has existed since 1965 (7474 according to the Tagmatine calendar) and has been very successful. Indeed, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion is in talks with another nation to export a number to establish a breeding population in that country, although this has to be looked at from the idea that this is not a native animal, even if it close to one that has been driven to extinction by anthropogenic means. Obviously, Suverina's noble gift of a pair of Aurochsen must be considered within this lens. It is thought that the last wild Aurochs was killed in Ahromaneia about four hundred years ago, roughly, and before then they existed as a small population in Perateia, the part of my nation that has a border with yours. Because of this, the Aurochsen will have to be put within a zoo or a wildlife park in order to allow the breeding pair that the Greater Queendom has gifted us to flourish without impacting on any other species or programme that the Logothesion ton Agelon is undertaking. At the moment, I could not tell you where this might be, but all care will be taken of them, wherever they end up. God willing, this will not just be the start of a new breeding population of a rare species, but the start of a new period of relations between two of the most powerful nations of not just Europa, but Eurth. May God be a guide for the future of both our great nations, Eugenios Goulielmos, Megas Logothetes of the Logothesion ton Barbaron of the Megas Agios Basileia Arhomanion
  16. It doesn't necessarily matter for this point. I'm kind of tempted to not mirror the Sack(s) of Rome, though. Suffice to say, Arome became a backwater and it ended up being politically expedient to move the capital of what Tagmatium considers civilised Christianity to Europatorion and then Tagmatika.
  17. I'm cool with that, albeit with some tweaks - me and Adaptus were thinking about 500 for the collapse of Arome, although we'd not quite decided on how that would take place. Considering the sheer size, I'd go for over-extension and subsequent fragmentation, rather than barbarian invasions. Maybe plague thrown in there for good measure. Tagmatium holds itself to be a continuation rather than a successor but that's open to debate. I was initially going to have some sort of cataclysm explain why Arome doesn't appear on the map, specifically an earthquake, but Tagmatium is quite far away from any faultlines. A meteorite might be over-egging it.
  18. *Most secret, for the eyes of King Aidan I only* To: His Majesty, Aidan I, King of @Seylos, Eire, Pleinmont, and Sark From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomanion Your majesty, As you are no doubt aware, Arhomaniki forces are operating out of Adrotiri in order to support our ally, @Aluxia, against a terroristic organisation that is striking against that country's rightful and recognised government. Adrotiri is effectively a naval base inside Derthaler waters, owned by @Adaptus. This means that, as much as my government would like to aid you and your allies against the so-called “Holy Empire” of @Derthalen, to pay them retribution for the awful actions that they have carried out, it would likely be impossible to do so without jeopardising the supply routes to our forces in Aluxia. Indeed, to safeguard these supply lines, a third carrier battle group has been despatched to the Makhaira Thalassa, the Dolche See, to make sure that my nation's interests are not affected by either side in this conflict. Again, I assure you that the Megas Agios Basileia does not threaten your nation's interests in any way. Far from it. It is clear that the Kingdom of Seylos has long stood as a bastion against the loathsome actions of Derthalen, and this is something that ought to be recognised by the nations of eastern Argis. For this, Arhomaneia salutes the steadfast nature of your nation and your people. As I have said, Adrotiri is effectively a naval base within Derthaler waters. Whilst this does put it in a precarious position during these troubling times, it does have certain advantages. Namely, it can act as something of a window into activities within Derthalen. Because of this, and the great respect that the Arhomaioi hold for you and your nation, I have been authorised to offer you any intelligence that my nation's forces might glean about the so-called “Holy Empire” from the base we are using and our movements in and out of the Makhaira Thalassa. This could be ship movements, troop deployments, new defensive works – information that will undoubtedly be of use as to your forces as you chastise the errant Derthalers. I will stress that this intelligence is not being pursued in an active manner – Arhomaniki forces cannot be imperilled in such a manner, in case they provoke Derthalen. Further, I have been allowed by Kommodos III, by the Grace of Christ the God, the faithful Agios Basileos kai Aukokrator ton Arhomaioi, to give you authorisation to pass any intelligence on to your allies in your righteous struggle. My nation does not quite have the relations with the Grand Duchy of @Limonaia or the Worker's Republic of @Fulgistan to pass it on directly but they will be grateful for anything that saves the lives of their forces and shortens this war. Furthermore, I must request that you keep your source of information secret – it will likely put Arhomaioi in danger if you do not. May God grant your people and you victory, Honorios Kontarian, Megas Logothetes of the Logothesion ton Stratiotikou of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomanion
  19. There's this map: I'll emphasise it's a rough one and not exactly definitive.
  20. Hello and welcome to Eurth! It's great to see new people.
  21. Me, O and formerly Adaptus have been tweaking the cultural groups of Europa for things to better fit overall plans, and Europa's equivalent of Rome is "Arome". This is the culture that me and Adaptus sprang from. Arome itself is within my territory, although I've been having difficulty trying to find a good fit for it within my country. We're kind of planning (I think) to explain Byzantium Nova as a weird off-shoot, possibly similar to those Roman legionairies who supposedly ended up in China after Crassus' defeat by the Parthians. He is OOCly the first Byzantine knock off in the region before me, however I'm not claiming to be the first Christian nation, nor where all of the different branches orginated. On top of that, my brand of Christianity is somewhat different to other, later denominations - my one holds that all depictions of religious figures are against the commandment about graven images, and is generally quite austere compared to others. I think me and @Sancti Imperii Catholico did roughly work out when the person who converted his nation left mine, but I can't find the date to hand.
