Galahinda

Request: Galahinda

Recommended Posts

Personally, I think this place would make a great spot for @Galahinda, @Orioni. The climate would match and there could most certainly be some historical colonial shennanigans between @Limonaia, @Fleur de Lys and @Kipan there. Furthermore, that's a great spot to do business with the powerhouse Kipanese economy, *cough cough* me *cough cough*, and the entirety of the Aurelian continent. Naturally, this might limit Kipan's potential future expansions, so their input would be important to this decision.

Alternatively, one of the islands north of @Synturia might be a suitable place for a postcolonial megacity as well.

I remember we had discussed an island location in between the New World and Adaptus that @Galahinda liked.  Maybe he’s changed his mind, but that’s what he had decided on iirc.

It is an interesting proposition but seems quite isolating.

Screenshot might be a bit misleading.  It's actually rather close to @Seylos and not terribly far from Adaptus.

I apologize for the intrusion *but*

Galahinda arguably wouldn't be that isolated. If anything the screenshot above can be a little misleading. In doing some measurements, his closest neighbors would be a decent bit closer than my own if he became a neighbor to Seylos. Of course, it would likely mean the climate would not be the one originally intended by Galahinda and at that point it would be a compromise I would presume.

To SSI's second suggestion, if I do have any say due to proximity, I would not be opposed to having a neighbor somewhat close to me if Galahinda were to take up residence in the smaller isle east of Synturia. Alternatively, he could take the spot in which Synturia currently resides? I know that Synturia's place on the map has been a little bit of discussion and depending on where it is at, perhaps a new occupant could take their place. This is of course presuming Galahinda likes the thought and that the discussion is where it should be.

If climate and being an island is something very important to Galahinda, and SSI's suggestion is not ideal I would also be willing to offer up my southern isle and reshape Oyus a little to make necessary adjustment as not much-if much at all-has really been done, fleshed out, and written with regard/reference to it. The only major city has been referenced very little and could easily be replaced. There is no catch to this, I don't expect some sort of compensation or anything like that presuming this would be allowed in the first place and presuming if Galahinda really found it to be desirable. (This could be just unnecessary)

I apologize if I made any great leaps and strides in making some presumptions.

Presumably the climate would be like that of Ireland IRL, rather than Mediterranean/Caribbean.

I’m honestly not too attached to the climate aspect, as long as it’s not arctic tundra or Sahara I’m fine with whatever.

I'm completely alright with you settling there! It'll be fun having a neighbor that isn't a crazy empire.

I say 3 is your best option. Orioni's #2 is actually where @Fulgistan is looking to expand (and where Rihan will hide under the cover of night and blow up his fleet, I mean, launch a massive fireworks display to show the friendship between the two countries).

I'd have said 1, but I don't really have a horse in this race.

I would like to state though I did kind of have "expansion ideas" and story ideas for the island west of Seylos (3) but I haven't posted anything formal about it so my ideas can change on the matter.

      EDIT: THIS EXPANSION IS COMPLETE
      Abstract
      To save space and keep things all in one place, this will be my OOC thread for my Expansion RPs while also serving as my official claim to the areas.
      The diligent reader (or lurker) on this forums will note how the multitude of relevant and some tangentially relevant sources below have all been directed towards building up to this RP. This wasn't just put together like: hUrR DUrR GiB mE LOTSA cLAy HuUuUurrrrRRR, the RPs below have been consciously placed (for the most part) to build up support to my claim here.
      In the following article, I will state my justifications and stake my claims towards an expansion of significant size. This will prove:
      1) A case where the player has used a similar expansion and been granted his claim.
      2) How this sort of expansion RP is done step-by-step from news posts, escalation, to execution.
      3) That the expansion in question has been given visual form by being shown clearly and accurately on a partition of the Region's map.
      Reiterating, this thread serves to tie in these varied resources and present a coherent OOC claim necessary to legitimise such an expansion--here the player will also respond to relevant points of criticism in defence of his claim and if necessary, make relevant edits to fit community regulations.
       
       
      Summary
      Iverica wants to expand through a political federation of states (NPCs for this case) which Iverica is already Hegemon over. Iverica's leadership is able to do this because of the following things:
      A constitutional amendment was made (see: "CA no. 103" below) which contains the foundation for unifying other culturally cohesive "Solidaridad" states. Solidaridad- "Iberic Solidarity", is an ethno-ideological concept which refers to the perceived unity of all Iberic Diaspora states. Degrees of Solidaridad exist--the strongest linking ideologically homogenous states, guaranteeing military or diplomatic mutual-protection. The weakest degree linking ideologically opposed states only through shared ancestry, this degree does not guarantee strong ties or other mutual benefits. All the states concerned in this RP are Solidaridad states of the strongest degree--constitutions are similar, lingua franca (Iverican) is shared, exclusive trade and border agreements usually exist between most. Stagnation of the Satellite States and Rise of Iverican Power- due to Primo Deitorr's pursuit of foreign trade and political-economic manoeuvering, Iverica has seen a rise in industrial output, military protectionism, trade surplus, and technological growth. Satellite states look more favourably on a union with Iverica because of stagnant economies and having the military backing of Iverica's aggressively protectionist policy as well as membership in the Defence treaty "TRIDENT". In short, they want to benefit from Iverica's gains internationally and regionally. Union Under a Common and Grave Cause- To be revealed. This will be demonstrated in an upcoming RP wherein the various states take up arms against a common enemy during a critical period which could make or break the future of the federation. Gameplay Justifications
      Case: Fleur de Lys' Union Pan-Republicaine [LINK] Fleur de Lys has successfully made a similar expansion via diplomacy/legislation with no outcry from the membership then. It is fair to expect that if there is any opposition to the nature and critical similarities between this RP and FdL's RP, the opponent must carry the burden of proving against the Lysian claim as well. TLDR: No one took issue OOC or released any statements IC on FdL's expansion, therefore if any qualms about critical similarities with the RPs are had, I expect due diligence to be taken. Relevant News Posts and RP Events I have been planning this extensively for a long time (since about Oct-Nov 2017), I have made many posts since this time relevant to the IC justifications of why a state would want to be part of an Iverican Federation, some details how this may be done, and news posts of citizens wanting to do this in the past. Once again, the opposition carries the burden of adequate research on the posts I have worked hard to produce the past half-year. There is no TLDR excuse here, sounds abrasive but it is not too much for me to ask critics to read my content and make citations as necessary. Integration of "Las Islas Ultramares"- evidence that Iverica can integrate a Solidaridad state.  Claim [OOC] [LINK]
      Initial (Ultramariano) Referendum [LINK]
      First Delay [LINK]

      Previous Attempts to Integrate & Context of the Expansion RP
      Involvement and Status in IGOs- supporting points why satellite states want to integrate.
      [ATARA]
      [TRIDENT]
      Cases Proving Iverican Defensive Capability- further supporting points to why satellite states want to integrate. As a Hegemon, Iverica is able to prove that it is willing to decisively use force to protect citizens domestically and internationally.
      Operations in Afropa - See related articles for escalation and justification of this RP.
      Operation Paloma- Evacuation of Nationals from Ahranaian Revolution
      Verde Blockade
      Economic Prosperity- Iverica is able to prove that it RP'd and news-posted content which justifies a strong economy--further supporting the rationale that satellite states would want to integrate for mutual/self-profit.
      Proof of Sale 1- Astriedan
      Proof of Sale 2- Gallambria
      Proof of Sale 3- Girkmand

      Also explains the effects of some of Iverica's prior RPs and explains some of Iverica's plans for the future.
      CORE EXPANSION RP 2: A UNION DIVIDED
      This will conclude the expansion for the most part pending a few addendums to clearly explain some gaps the scenario is bound to have.
      The additions on the Region's map would then be justified at the conclusion of this RP.

      This post comes from a place of considerable thought, and I think it's time I at least ask for permission to do it.
      The fact of the matter is, Bulgenstaz is flawed. Not flawed in that I regret government choices or economic situation, but more in how I have handled my nation's culture, history, traditions, etc. I came in here with a wild idea about a weird place called "Bulgenstaz": home to a socialist democracy of Slavic/Vietnamese islanders. Looking back, however, I feel as though I've worked myself into a bit of a cultural hole, as I just don't see these plans making sense in the long-term.
      I made some regrettable choices, and I would like to be able to modify them in a positive and thoughtful manner.
      To begin, I want to talk about the new climate map and how it has influenced my decision: it has been a sort of "tipping point" as far as my satisfaction with my nation's lore. Frankly, it's a little strange for Vietnamese slavs to exist in a place without jungles. I would like to be able to re-establish my people as simply khmer people who derived themselves from the ancient Marenai. In my current (and now long-standing) opinion the slavic island nation concept seems pretty dumb in retrospect, and combining it with Vietnamese/Indonesian else just is too chaotic.
      So I guess the central theme here is this: I would like my people to instead be based linguistically and ethnically based on the khmer, while maintaining a savanna origin similar to many African cultures and some parts of Mesoamerica. I want to formally ditch my slavic roots, as I think it does not work in the context of a culture. Obviously being a savanna-based nation there would likely still have been a colonizer, but I think Dniester has proven to be too incapable as a country for it to be logically justified. If the colonization of my country after this change is undesirable, however, I am content with them having always been a sovereign nation. I would like to add: I am aware this would require a lot of work to redo, especially for other people, but I am willing to take it on as I reedit my nation's people and small cities (including possibly the nation name and capitol (yikes)) to fit my new precedent. This is why I would like to put this request into OOC: as a forum for discussing the transformation, the limits at which such a transformation would occur, the feedback of other nations with how to best immerse "Bulgenstaz" into Eurth again, and (of course) some level of approval of our lovely moderation team.
      Please note: all/almost all my planned changes WILL NOT alter any of my pre-existing posts/relationships (with the exception of Dniester, who no longer posts here), I have full intent to stay in ICEB, retain my current foreign relations, etc. What I'm asking is for a rebranding of Bulgenstaz as it is currently known (if it even remains Bulgenstaz, who knows 😛). This process would not be instantaneous, but I will do my best to get the bulk of the transformation done quickly so as to not interfere with other people's posts.
      Thank you very much for your time.

      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.
