Charleston Palace reveals new Information on the kings death

The King was found dead in bed at Charleston Palace’s South Room, on the morning of September 14th.He had died from a coronary thrombosis — a blocking of blood flow to the heart as a result of a blood clot in an artery. He was found to be dead by one of his maids as she poured him some tea. The Maid, Margaret Chamberlain, has stated “As I walked in with my tray, I noticed that he wasn’t responding. I thought that he must still be sleeping, which was odd since the king usually enjoyed waking up quite early, so I waited 5 minutes before gently nudging his shoulder. And then I noticed he had gone very pale and wasn’t breathing. Then I checked his pulse, that’s what made me realise that the king was dead. I called for help immediately, but there was nothing they could do.” The Royal Doctor, Dr David Wendover, discovered the reason for his death a short 5 hours later, before the king’s body was moved to his coffin.

PNN MID-WEEK ROUNDUP

  • United Corp allowed to buy Dosney! Today at the Bank of PyeMcGowan Corporate Regulation Court, Judge George Xavier, after a month of research, gave United Corp the green flag for its expensive purchase of the media conglomerate Dosney. This has raised concerns, with protestors asking the court to break up United Corp, as they shouted “End the Monopoly! End the Corruption! End the oligarchy!”, The leader of the protest, Katie Korpen, said that if United Corp was broken up, the PyeMcGowian economy would receive a significant boost, but PNN Business Simulations and statements from the Bank of PyeMcGowan say that this would be a devastating move from the bank.
  • Schools in Wendover allow mobile phones. The Education Council of Wendover have allowed students of state run schools to use their mobile phones during break times, this only applies to children over the age of 10 and will come into effect in December.

  • Ancient Town found near Charleston. A recent archeological survey in the Counties of South Charleston and Carmarthenburg revealed a large town dating from around 500 BC, some archeologists suggest that around 1500 people could of lived there!

PNN BREAKING NEWS 

PRIME MINISTER GEORGE LONDON CALLS FOR SNAP ELECTION TO PROVE HIS LEADERSHIP OF THE LIBERAL PARTY IS BENEFICIAL!

Today at a cabinet meeting, the PM called for a Snap election to take place tomorrow. This was a risky move from the PM as the Conservative Party has been growing in strength over the past months. This is due to the increasing number of more wealthy people in the nation. The conservative party’s popularity has only been boosted as its leader Edward Charlesburg has cast out all of the far right members of the party.

So could this be the end of the Liberal Party’s reign? We will just have to find out tomorrow evening.

Earthquake detected in Auraid Bay!

A FEW MOMENTS AGO a seismic reader at the seabed of the Auraid Bay detected a 6.5 magnitude earthquake along the Deartynn faultline.

The coastguard has announced that a cargo ship lost some of its cargo, along with the deaths of 3 crew members. The coastguard has advised people to stay away from the coast and seek higher elevation in case of small tsunami waves. The natural disaster act will be put into effect if there is a tsunami!

 

The government has asked people not to panic. This information will be passed on to the nation's neighbors, namely  @Theodoria.

OIL FOUND IN THE AURAID BAY FOLLOWING EARTHQUAKE

Yesterday after a joint venture between PyeMcGowian and Alenveilian Scientists made an unexpected discovery, during the placement of a monitor on the seabed, as they found traces of oil around 4 nautical miles off the coast of PyeMcGowan and Alenveil. Following this United Commodities’ stock has skyrocketed by +$37 as the company’s parent, The United Corporation, also owns small islands in the bay with small scale ports that could be used for the deployment of oil rigs.

The Effects on the other Auraid Bay Nations will also be large, as the expanding economies of the region surely will gain a major boost from this discovery. The Prime Minister has stated that we must be careful not to dramatically effect the enveiroment which is home to the rare Auraid Scalpon.

ANDERSON INDEPENDENCE VOTE RESULTS

A FEW MOMENTS AGO, ANDERSONIAN OFFICIALS RELEASED THE RESULTS OF THE RECENT INDEPENDENCE VOTE THAT TOOK PLACE LAST THURSDAY, And the people of Anderson will narrowly remain PyeMcGowians with a narrow 50.5%, Vassalge with 32.5% and Independence with 18%. It was expected that 7.5 million took part in the referendum and it had a much larger turnout than expected following polls that suggested that only 60% would vote whilst 84% actually did.

So what does this mean for the future of Anderson?                                    

The Government has promised Anderson more devolved Powers, handed to its Provincial Assembly , such as policing, tax rates, healthcare and borders(Land and sea) as the province shares a border with @Theodoria. The Andersonian Independance Party’s membership has fallen by 60% over the past few weeks which has just added insult to injury as their leader, Alex Jones, Said that “Theodorians are filthy German rats, that don’t deserve a town never the less a nation!” Despite his parents, who he said were “true patriots”, were Theodorian Immigrants. This caused a massive backlash, when documents were leaked in 2014 of his plans for independent Anderson, he called it “A pure utopia, with children playing, men working, and women cleaning” following this outrage he was put under house arrest in his 9 million Poggle estate north of Dawson. Further trialing will occur on December 10th.

What about the rest of the country?

Well this has raised questions on weather other parts of PyeMcGowan should be given the vote, such as the Leverne Islands, but as Commentator Rick Fielding stated in 1989 at Jones Island, The Leverne Islands must always be PyeMcGowian. But what about The State of Hagren? Many have asked, Well they do have a rather distinct culture and viable reasons to secede, but they are heavily based on industry with only transport routes to PyeMcGowan and many Hagrenians don’t have basic knowledge , whilst Hagren’s leaders are quite corrupt and don’t care for the poor, and with no knowledgable incorruptible persons to lead there is only but a failed state waiting for an independent Hagren.

    • Inspecting the Troops: Part 1 Garenah: a vibrant farming community amongst dozens that dotted the Aihai, fertile plains of waving grain and abundant fruit and citrus trees. Though most people here were farmers, it was the headquarters the 10th Legion. At the gates of the vast military base swayed the eagle banners. The sun was shining and a car approached - Morror Kassus decided to inspect the troops. "General Approaching! (Daeus mreiyar!)" echoed throughout the camp. The guards at the gates stood at attention and saluted to their hero as he drove by. Soldiers lined the road that ran the length of the complex. It was double-walled and at the center: Kassus's headquarters, the legion's treasury, and armory. With Morror was Kalenna, the most senior colonel, and the commanding officer of the veteran 1st Regiment. Alongside them was Antor Relek, the senior centurion. Morror commented, "the soldiers seem restless," speaking to the two. "They want to get into the fight," Relek responded. Soldiers both new and old cheered as they passed. "They'll all have their chance, soon enough," Kassus said in kind, Kalenna interjected, "the Praetor is being foolish for not using us in the Enolian campaign, we're the most experienced legion in the entire Army and what are they doing? Sitting around, doing nothing." Morror stopped her. "The 10th will play a part. Do not despair. We'll have an opportunity to remind the People of our valor." He glanced out the car and saw one formation. "Driver, pull over." The car came to a halt and the three got out. In front of them was a ter'val, led by a recently promoted centurion. "What is your name sergeant?" "Omal Takvi sir," he responded. "Centurion Relek spoke highly of you," commented Kassus. "Are you and your men when the call to serve is made?" "Yes sir! Just say the word and my men and those of our company will march to glory." "Good man," Morror said, "Relek, give these men an extra ration tonight," he instructed. Antor nodded and took note to talk with the kitchens. The three get back in the car and continued inwards. After passing several more barracks, they reached the gates of the inner compound, guarded by the 'Guards of the Fort' (Moriari ih'Sæmna), his personal bodyguard, made up of only the most veteran men in the entire army unit. Awaiting them in front of his headquarters was the Weaponsmaster (Rianov) and the other regimental colonels. "How was your drive the capital," asked one of the gathered. "Rather quiet," he responded, "helped me to just enjoy the scenery," getting out of the car, "but enough idle chatter, everyone, please come in," he ordered. Inside the two-story building, of stucco and tiled roof, was Kassus's more spartan home away from his home in Rateg. His quarters were above while the main conference room, communications office, and other offices were on the ground floor. The conference table had been prepared: papers bound, tablets linked. Two pots of Maurdivian coffee were primed. They had been called to discuss internal troop readiness and information obtained by Kassus from General Rendak concerning the Enolian conflict. "We have a great deal to talk about, take your seats..." The meeting would last three hours. "...while we are not 'actively' deployed, I want all units to be at the ready until further notice," instructed Kassus. "All units will maintain a twice-daily training program, and all units will participate in a shooting range exercise every week." The Weaponsmaster began drawing up a schedule. "I want all regiments to have readiness reports daily, any questions?" Colonel Joras Morek of the 4th Regiment spoke up, "the Praetor needs to deploy us now. The 8th Legion is in no position to take Duronom. It's like you said, the conflict will drag on if we cannot take out their supply chain, being fed by dubious Asgeirrians." "The Phi'Tlaru are currently tracking down those individuals and negate that situation. I told Colonel Varak this in the car ride out here, the Legion will have its opportunity. Soon enough." Seeing no further questions, he dismissed the group. He watched each of them leave, stopping Colonel Imos Durak of the 7th Regiment. "Congratulations on your engagement to Dara." Imos thanked him, "most appreciated," he responded. "Getting married next year in sight of Karethvek." Morror cared about his men from the senior staff to the lowest soldier. He knew the power of loyalty and it was that bond that made his legion the best in the entire army. After the other colonels had left, all who remained were in the Weaponsmaster and Colonel Varak. "There are two further pieces of business to discuss, the first involves you Avor," looking at the camp's foremost logistician. "I have forwarded funds to Sukkar Marrus, the CEO of Aishkurænd Rheilhhu Rihana, to procure production rights to a range of weaponry from Adaptus which will give us an edge over our enemies, can you please follow up with Sukkar and get that effort moving as quickly as possible?" Weaponsmaster Nerik nodded in acknowledgment. "I looked at the specs you had gotten from Minister Valdran last time and they are quite nice. It will give us a tremendous advantage over the Enolian Guard. If we can't get the rights, I'll see what we can do about outfitting as many of the men as possible with them." Morror was content and excused him. And then there was Varak, "for the last piece of business, it's not martial - it's political," he said. She nodded. "I have Kaya looking into Senator Charvanek's activities," Kalenna reported. "It is always good to have some friends in the Phi'Tlaru," commented Morror, "Livana will need to be dealt with, eventually." Varak put Morror at ease. "Don't worry. Kaya has never failed you." Kassus smiled. He liked hearing that. "Then I'll leave it to you to get to bottom of, we'll talk more on it when she has some dirt," he remarked. Kalenna proceeded to get up and was almost out of the conference room when she stopped and turned back her superior, who was now getting surrounded by officers feeding him intelligence packets and memos from Central Command. She stared at him, imposed against the massive map in the background. She said to herself, "a true leader."
    • Capital City Officially Renamed The Mayor of Cinigrad Avery Ray and Vice-President Turner in an combined federal and local broadcast announced that the Federal District of of Cinigrad would unified with the bordering city of Farbanti, a part of the State of November Island, combining into the Federal District of Cinigrad-Farbanti. Effective Immediately, the area of and around Farbanti has been ceded to the Capital District. Farbanti, once one of the most powerful of the Youtabonian city-states, has now been bordered by Cinigrad with little to no dividing lines between them. Talks of annexation began as early the 1980's but had been stalled due to "cultural history" but talks progressed in late 2018 when Cinigradi officials offered to rename the city and district to include both names, and the funding for a Farbanti historical and cultural museum.

Jildon stated that her Ministry was still developing a more comprehensive budget for the Republic's healthcare service, the Dræd'et, and will present her recommendation to the relevant Senate committee next month..." "...Kovex Heavy Industries (Diadænzohem u'Kovex) has been selected by the Rateg City Council (Ekhiel ih'Sivas Rateg) to construct 100,000 units of proper housing. The area that will be developed has long been considered a slum by the local authorities. Rateg's population is expected to grow over the next decade, like many of the major urban centers of Rihan, and the Council insisted that it needed to get ahead of the curve. This also coincides with the anticipation of the construction of over two dozen factories hiring nearly 75,000 employees over the same time period. Residents have been assured by the authorities that they will be consulted on the project over its lifespan. Local police units were called in to maintain order in the city center..." "...our brave men and woman continue their advance into Enolia, having achieved victory after victory against the cowardly and uncivilized Enolians. Soldiers of the 8th Legion have made good progress along the coast while their colleagues in the 3rd Legion are moving east in the Thalak Hills. Each legion's key objectives have been made confidential at this time but elements of the Navy's expeditionary fleet was seen leaving port early this morning, indicating they will be playing a role in the ongoing conflict. The Defense Ministry has asked all loyal citizens to keep our soldiers in their thoughts and to make donations towards supporting our forces in the field..."

    • Mathon paid attention to every single word Eugenios had said. "A mission sounds modest but there is nothing saying it couldn't elevate to a proper embassy in due time. I merely propose such a minor step in the name of protecting both my own actions here in Rihan and for the Emperor who I am sure will have to deal with some level of criticism from the Church that doesn't exactly...approve of us. I think the cultural exchange is a good mechanism to test the waters under the auspices of a proper arrangement and if successful, it would warrant much more 'coordinated' deliberations." "I may need the militant Jaridan and the deviously wealthy Nej'ahar to get many of my proposals through but when they consist of men and woman who would rather take a blunt approach to solve a problem - either through the barrel of a rifle or through the sacks of money - it isn't always the right method. Now, as you are aware, I am a military man myself, a long career in the Navy before being appointed the Praetorship, this sounds counter. I may be a political man now, and surely you may not believe what I am about to say but I never 'clawed' for the position. I accepted it because it was my duty to serve. I do not formally pronounce my political alignments in the Senate in the name of safeguarding the Republic - above all. The Suketh may be a small contingent of the Senate membership, they are right. I privately consulted many of them in the early days of my tenure - and this meeting is the product of such discussion and debate." "Rihan may be as far away as the rest of Eurth and it some ways, that is a good thing in the name of maintaining the stability of the Republic, but as you said, no one nation survives on its own. Since my ascention to the position, I've taken far greater steps at continental affairs than many Praetors before me, only concerning themselves with Aurelia overall when there was a situation that was too...complex for our own address. Today, the Rihannsu and Kirvinska are as close as we've ever been. The Phi'Tlaru has been quite useful in probing the wider globe in keeping us abreast of developments abroad. I do respect Arhomaneia cause of keeping Europa at least at some level of stability," another boost few other Praetors would say unless it was meant to get something, "and I am aware of a great many things many governments would not like us to know," he gave a slight chuckle. "In regards to the cultural exchange," he moved towards the first trigger that would reconnect former complements, "the definitive program would probably center around nationally-sponsored trips. I'd like to say we could do an exposition but I have the sense that many in the Church who may want to suppress some of our 'creativity' but I think you can work out the final format with Senator Pranana and the Civilization Minister. Obviously embarking on this type of arrangement would involve some revisions in visa policy between us and the establishment of protocols that our two nations would uphold in the spirit of making this a success." He knew Eugenios would bring up the one difficulty in pulling such an exchange up.
