  1. My apologies I meant to respond faster. Yes I am alright with this. Welcome to the insane neighborhood.
  2. “Who the fuck is Jorji Costava?” Ambassador Shawn Boyce said while looking down at the document that had been sent to him by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “Apparently… the Minister of Papers…” His deputy replied. She looked awkwardly at a copy of the papers. “The fuck is that?” “I believe they handle… messages and storage of said messages.” “Right… Ok. So this is some forgotten government official who’s trying to keep the relevance of his stupid office in the chaos.” Boyce groans, slamming the papers on his desk. “Alright, we need to find a better way. There is no way this person is going to get this working right.” He stands up and walks out of his office and walks directly towards the security office of the ambassadorial building. The building itself was moderately sized and only truly existed as a means to connect Velaheria with Seylos during the war with the Dolch. The two nations of course never liked each other, but war cooperation trounced any past hatred for the moment. After wandering through some hallways, his exasperated deputy following him, he opens the door to the security office. A young soldier, part of the small detachment to guard the embassy, looked up in a bit of shock, “Uh sir, is something wrong?” “I need two of your guys, we’re going on a field trip.” Boyce said and then quickly spun around to address his deputy, “Get me all the money out of the discretionary cash fund and bring it here.” – Boyce and two of the guards from the embassy, Lance Corporal Hodson and Sergeant Kurzmann, walk outside beyond the small compound’s walls. “Sir… I know you wanted us because we speak Dolch, but can you tell me exactly what we are doing?” Sergeant Kurzmann asked. “Look right now we have no idea who is really running things. Obviously someone is getting these elections ready. There's some sort of military and police presence but the Assembled Nations can’t even get to someone who matters… We need to get permission from someone who does matter to make sure the AN troops can land unobstructed.” Boyce replied. Hodson scratched the side of his head, “Um, well sir isn’t there a president or prime minister or something?” Boyce sighed, “Supposedly, not that we can get in contact.” The two young soldiers looked around them. Bastaria wasn’t boiling in chaos, but it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing throughout the city either. It was clear many government services had been severely disrupted and the economy was in a state of flux. Moving from the old style of government to capitalism and democracy was not going to work overnight. Though it was mostly calm in the city’s downtown, the country was running on autopilot with the few civil servants who hadn’t been purged due to party loyalties. It was working, but only just barely. It made sense that the Assembled Nations had only managed to get in contact with the most useless ministry on Eurth. “Let’s start simple… let’s find out who the hell is in charge of law and order in Bastaria, then we can find the actual people in charge..” Boyce said. The two soldiers nodded and followed him along. Attempt #1 “Have you… committed a crime?” The confused Bastarian policeman said looking at the Seylosian Ambassador. “No no, I just want to speak to your supervisor.” “Why… would I bring out my supervisor if there isn’t a crime?” The bemused officer replied. Then suddenly got a bright look in his eyes, “I suppose I could call him down…” Boyce held up some money, “I’d like that.” The officer eyed the money, “Seylosian money? Not Wrans?” Boyce nodded. The officer gleefully snatched the money and got on his radio. Attempt #3 “And you’re only the Chief… for this section of Bastaria?” Boyce asked a bored looking upper ranking police officer. They had been led throughout the city to a larger police station. “Yes yes” The annoyed police officer replied. “Right so, who do you take orders from?” Boyce asked, leaning forward in his chair. The man lit a cigar and leaned back in his chair, “Many people, what is it to you?” Boyce rolled his eyes and produced more money, “You know exactly what I’m talking about.” “Ah, that’s what you are talking about, you know I think I might know something for you.” The man smiles, grabbing the pounds out of Boyce’s hands. Attempt #8 “And so you know where this Colonel is?” Boyce asked a youthful Velaherian soldier sitting outside his own small apartment. Behind him the naive but kind Lance Corporal Hodson was holding a pile of hand knitted sweaters and chatting with an older woman. They had to buy from the soldier’s mother to even get to talk to him, and even now he was being stingy. “Ah but you’re Seylosian… how do I know you aren’t going to maybe assassinate him?” The boy replied, lighting a cigarette. Boyce yet again held up another collection of bills. The soldier gleefully took them, “Well… I think he was about a kilometer east, a newer building built during the war.” Attempt #15 The tired trio walked into not an ostentatious government building, but instead what seemed to be a field headquarters on the outside of Bastaria. For the first time it felt they had actually found something that made sense. The soldier, who they had graciously paid almost the remainder of the discretionary fund to escort them, led them to a large trailer at the edge of the base. Inside were several Velaherian military officers, a grizzled older man standing among them. He looked up in confusion seeing the three entering. “Who is this?” He asked curtly to the soldier. “Seylosians, their ambassador.” The soldier replied. The older man waved him away along with the other officers in the room. “Well this is something new, the Seylosian ambassador here? In my command?” The man said. “General Breiner correct?” Boyce asked. The General nodded, “Yes… and why are you here?” “I’ve spent quite a lot of time and money today trying to figure out who is actually in charge here. The civilian government has been… unresponsive.” “Hmpf, well it certainly isn’t me,” The General laughed, “I don’t even know who I report to. I let the politicians sort this nonsense out. I suppose now it’s technically Lilian Sagan, she runs the country now. Though I imagine she’s a bit busy as I have yet to receive any substantial orders.” “Fine, we can deal with that later. But what we need right now is to get AN peacekeepers into Velaheria and your government on board.” Boyce said, exasperated. Breiner crossed his arms, clearly looking frustrated, “Can you not reach them?” “The AN has tried, and so has my office. Everything keeps getting routed to this… Ministry of Papers.” Breiner roared with laughter, “Ministry of Papers! Ah yes. Pointless people. Tell me, Seylosian, why should I help you.” “Look, Velaheria and Seylos have never been good friends. That’s fine. But right now you of all people know the chaos of this transition. You’re riding in the honeymoon period, but things are going to fall apart fast without help. The AN is here to help. And I know you see those Stedorians building up on your border. You know you can’t take them.” Breiner narrowed his eyes, “Seylos… for my entire life has always been the enemy. How can I trust you?” “We may hate each other, but when has Seylos ever betrayed Velaheria? We fought the Dolch together, where were the Orionese? Would you believe them over the enemy you know?” Boyce asked. “A fair statement. But did you liberate us?” The General asked. “No, but we can help rebuild you. Nations across the wurld want to help, you’ve got to help us do it.” Breiner looked down for a moment, “You can tell the Assembled Nations they can begin their preparations. I will go directly to the new government to get everything sorted on this front. Have your office contact us here to make sure everything goes through the proper channels.” OOC: I'll get the details requested later. It's my birthday, gimmie a break XOXO
  3. Boltenhagen, Oclait July 20th, 2023 Terror and fear gripped the last stronghold of Wolf’s Sentist forces. Buildings were on fire, and people were dead in the streets, though not through any warfare from advancing Hodrean Milita forces, but instead from the Wolf’s own soldiers who had taken to pillaging the only city on Oclait to have any form of wealth. In the middle of it all was Karl Pichler and Daniel Rhodes, just trying to survive the deluge of destruction. Karl had been feeding information to Hodrean Intelligence for years at this point, just a way to try and get him and Daniel to survive all of this. After they had been stolen from Hodrea life had been unbelievably rough, especially for Daniel, but when Karl had finally gained the courage to turncoat against the Sentists things changed for them. Shortly after arriving in Oclait, and barely surviving the encounter with Iverican forces, he knew he had to do something. Somehow he had managed to gain contact with a Hodrean operative and it all went up from there. They funneled him money through clandestine means and he managed to not starve like so many other of his… ‘unimportant’ comrades. With that money he also took the opportunity to free Daniel from the horrors of his own reality, something he could barely bring himself to think about. With the end of Wolf’s reign however he knew he had to get away from everything as soon as possible. “Are you ready? We have to get out of here now Daniel,” Karl said, urging his friend to gather as much of their things as possible from inside the room they both shared in Wolf’s complex. “Ah um yes.. I just…” Daniel mumbled nervously, fumbling around with his things, clearly very stressed out. “Daniel, you’ve got to hurry!” Karl almost yells “They’ve set up an extraction-” “An extraction you say?” A voice said as his door burst open and three men walked in. Karl’s eyes opened wide as he recognized Wolf’s right hand man, Viktor Hofor, standing in front of him. Karl couldn’t speak, he just stood there dumbfounded. He hadn’t expected this… Wolf’s own top commander just walking in on them… Hafer raised a hand to prevent him from speaking, “Don’t bother. I’ve known about this little arrangement of yours with the Hodreans for months now. In fact… it’s exactly why I’m here.” “What? You’ve… known?” Karl sputtered out. “Yes yes, I’ve known. It doesn’t matter now. What does matter is you have a line directly to the Hodreans, and I have a problem.” Hafer said, drawing up one of Karl’s battered chairs and sitting on it. “You do still have a line of communication, ja?” “I… I um yes…” Karl said, trying his best to sound remotely coherent. He was still surprised any of this was happening. “Good. I’m sure it’s nothing new that both myself and our esteemed Kommadant hate each other. In fact… I’m fairly certain he’s made plans to have me eliminated before we reach Nesneubar. I’d very much love for you to help,” Hofor said, crossing his legs and giving a smirk, “But I’d like our good Hodrean friends to get him first.” Karl glanced at Daniel, who seemed frozen in fear. The pale redhead had taken to sitting on the dirty bed and was just shaking in fear. Karl had always taken the lead protecting his friends and he couldn’t stop now by giving into the terror he also felt. Shaking slightly, he grabbed another chair and pulled it up sitting in it, “Ok dann… Was willst du? You want me to call him in? Why would I do that?” Hafer gave a smile, “Well I know you wouldn’t do it for yourself.. But…” Hafer pointed at the quivering redhead, looking as insidious as one could while doing so. “You’d do it for him, ja?” Karl didn’t say anything, only looking at Hafer with narrowed eyes. Hafer laughed and then gave an exaggerated shrug, “I know what your poor friend Daniel had to go through after our occupation of Oclait. And… I know who did it. So I’ll give you this, I’ll have the men who hurt him dead within the day. In return I want to relay exact instructions to your Hodrean handlers.” “Karl… you don’t-” Daniel started, his voice cracking as he tried to speak up. “How do I know you won’t betray me?” Karl replied to Hafer. Hafer shrugged again, “You don’t, but let me sweeten the deal a little more with a gift.” Hafer took a piece of paper out of his pocket and handed it to Karl, “This is one of the people coming for you.” Karl looked at the offered paper and then grabbed it, opening it up. After unfolding it he almost gasped. It was Kieron. His and Daniel’s childhood friend, dressed in military garb along with looked like Seylosians. Though he looked less official than his compatriots, “K-Kieron…” Hafer leaned forward, “You tell them the specific instruction I’m going to give you. I don’t care if the Ivericans take their revenge and kill him, or if the Union arrests him. I want him gone. You do this, I’ll make sure nobody gets in your way to escape and the men who hurt your friend are dead. Verstehen?” “Done,” Karl said quickly, “Tell me everything.”
  4. AN Command Velaharia is Hereby Authorized to Begin Operations Under the Following Mission Purpose of this command. The purpose of the Assembled Nations Command Velaheria is to ensure the safety and security of the people of Velaheria from any outside military force and assist in recovering the country from the effects of the war with Dolchland. Prevent authoritarian forces from reasserting control over the Velaherian state. Peacekeepers Peacekeepers from contributor nations will be distributed to various designated zones in accordance with their strength and stated capabilities in order to ensure the most optimal spread of forces around the country. Nations with higher quantities of troops should be involved in occupational duties of major urban centers. Nations contributing lower amounts of troops should be utilized patrolling rural zones, and when necessary receive prompt support from other nations if encountering resistance. Military no-fly zone should be established over the nations, ensuring that outside military forces would be unable to mount proper campaigns. Or that internal resistance is not able to use pre-existing air assets to conduct military operations. General Rules of Engagement Peacekeepers have the right to defend themselves from hostile fire. Peacekeepers should move immediately to defend the lives of civilians if they are targeted by hostile forces. When confronted by unarmed civilians performing a hostile act on peacekeepers, peacekeepers should use the absolute minimum required amount of force to contain the situation. Peacekeepers are prohibited from seizing any property, unless it is confirmed to be an asset used by hostile forces. Detentions should be kept to a minimum and be left to local civilian authorities, unless this detention is directly related to any identified hostile forces. This command will follow under the ideas set forth in the Assembled Nations Action for Peacekeeping planning strategy. Political Strategy In order to ensure a coherent political response to the crisis in Velaheria. This response is not to ask countries on the international stage to align with a specific set of beliefs, but instead to create an agreed on framework for operations set specifically in Velaheria. The Assembled Nations has not granted this command the ability to enforce one form of political ideology over another, and as such we must leave it up to the will of the people and local governance to decide their futures. This command’s mission is not to interfere in local politics, and what faction is in control of these politics is still not fully clear. Peace and Security This command must ensure that all individuals capable of assisting in our mission of creating a lasting peace are utilized and not discriminated against. There may be moments, especially when dealing with nations not used to working together or internal struggles which target specific groups, that discrimination may become an obstacle to creating peace. This command must create a framework that prevents these obstacles from derailing our efforts in Velaheria. Protection and Capability This command will create a structure where military units from all contributor nations are evaluated for their military capabilities in the field. Not all contributing nations are suited to certain aspects of conduct, and they must be placed in areas of Velaheria that suit their capabilities the best. Military Units must be educated on how to appropriately conduct themselves with local community engagement as well as set up infrastructure for investigating individuals whose crimes fall within the purview of this command. Safety and Security This command must be ready to develop and implement infrastructure around the country to promptly respond to military threats. This also includes creating an environment where medical and engineering personnel are able to conduct their work without fear of violence from potential combatants. Create a system that appropriately protects humanitarian aid distributed throughout Velaheria. Create a system that deals with crimes committed against peacekeepers working underneath Assembled Nations authority. Performance and Accountability Create a performance assessment system that can gauge the operational readiness of all military units involved in peacekeeping operations. Ensure that peacekeeping personnel are appropriately educated on the local culture and language. Create a system that deals with potential peacekeeper misconduct and apply it to all military units in operation. Peacebuilding and Sustainable Peace Establish a robust diplomatic corps within Velaheria in order to create an environment where peaceful talks can be held between all stakeholders in possible conflicts within the nation. Create a system that effectively distributes participant nations resources to this command, and ensure those resources are used effectively in the field for whatever their final purpose might be. Local and Glubal Partnerships Ensure that this command can establish good relations with local communities and create partnerships with local governance and important groups to create an atmosphere of trust between this command and the local people. Incorporate Assembled Nations economic efforts with this commands security mission on a local level. Maintain a network of global partnerships that will fuel the recovery of Velaheria and ensure that this command’s mission is not threatened. Peacekeeper Conduct A zero tolerance policy on peacekeeper crimes will be implemented to ensure that this command does not perpetuate crimes on the people it has been sent to protect. Pursue a strategy in accordance with Assembled Nations human rights policy, and not on the desires of specific stakeholder nations. Ensure the protection of the environment of Velaheria during the duration of this command. TO: Current Government of Velaharia Based in Bastaria @Orioni FROM: AN Command Velaharia Under the authority granted by the Assembled Nations Security Council, this coalition of nations is ready to begin its mandate to begin peacekeeping operations within the nation. Under this mandate we wish to ensure that the stability of the nation is kept intact and recovery after both this change in government and the war with Dolchland can continue unabated. For this mission to work, this command would need access to strategic airports and ports located across the nation and a working relationship with both the current Velaharian Armed Forces and the Imperial Orioni forces stationed in the country.
  5. I absolutely would like to contribute to this project still. Seylosian support would come in the form of financial and academic support along with co-development during construction. The 1970s through to the end of the 80s would be a time of rapid growth and development for Seylos and her power needs would be great. This goes without saying though that we would want a partnership and not simply funding Poja to build a reactor we later use. Academic Support: Much major academic support would come from the fine educators and researchers in Royal Academy Morenish (a public research university), located on the outskirts of Kirkwall, Alba, Seylos. Also present near the university is Morenish National Laboratory, a public research institution that receives grants from the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Science and Technology (MST), and the Ministry of Public Infrastructure and Utilities (MPIU). Over its many decades of existence, the Morenish Lab has been responsible for several breakthroughs that have contributed to everyday Seylosian life. In the present day its main focus is on enhancing Seylos's access to green energy technology, developing more advanced and easier to maintain public infrastructure, and helping to develop national scientific curriculum taught in the Seylosian education system. However there are many academic institutions located around Seylos that have existed for many years. The University of Selbourne and University of Norfolk systems can be drawn upon for a variety of skilled academic professionals and researchers that have come from all over Eurth. Financial Support: Seylos's primary financial contributors to this venture will be from the MPIU, MST, and several private energy companies that are regulated under the Seylosian utility system. Primary funding from government agencies will be focused on hiring the requisite research personnel and funding initial tests either within Seylos or in Poja. Private contributions will mainly be focused on construction of reactors that can be moved towards commercial usage. Political Support: Seylos in general is considered a relatively risk free entity to do business and research with. However most nations know that Argis can be a rough and tumble place, and might need some reassurance nothing strange is going on. Seylosian support and direct involvement would ease any political pushback regarding trade and assure more cautious Seylosian military partners that Poja will not be lobbing nuclear weapons around anytime soon. Military Support: Like I said Argis can be a wild place. As Poja has described in the past, Poja is only a sneeze away from a civil war sometimes. Seylos will ensure agreements are in place to secure any Pojacki nuclear plants that might be exposed to any... extended civil unrest to prevent any catastrophe.

If so, how many, and where are they located? No (More can be opened if it is deemed necessary) Has the government of the Republic of Aurora established an embassy within your country? If so, at what address is it located? Yes, 221 Ambassadorial Quay, Selbourne, New Anglia, Seylos. Has the government of the Republic of Aurora established any consulates within your country? If so, how many, and where are they located? That would be up to you, but recommended locations if desired would be Norfolk and Loughrea.
  7. The escape of the Sentist High Priest had sent shockwaves through the military. For the past few years, the High Priest had been held in captivity close to the border of the Oclait. While the location was certainly considered dangerous for housing the most important prisoner in all of Ceris, it was deemed even more risky to attempt to the High Priest when border crossing and raids happened frequently from the other side. The fear had been that if radical Sentists caught wind of a transfer, the convoy would be immediately ambushed and the High Priest freed. Unfortunately for Hodrea, the reality had been that the opposite was true. Moving the High Priest earlier most likely would have been more safe than when they had decided to actually do it. With the Hodrean Militia pushing deeper and deeper into the Oclait, the decision was finally made to move the High Priest in secrecy. The thought was that any radical Sentists were already being actively engaged in combat and would make the transfer to Liechnenfax go smoothly. Of course this didn’t happen. The High Priests allies were laying in wait, staying in the shadows while letting the warlords of the Oclait take the spotlight. They knew that when the invasion came, security on the High Priest would be far more lax, and luckily for them it wasn’t the Rangers making the transfer. In the early hours of July 17th, Sentist that had laid in waiting for years came out of the woodwork to organize their jailbreak. Around twenty kilometers away from where he had been confined, the Sentists struck with their full force. Far outnumbering the Militia that were in the convoy, it didn’t take long to wipe out the High Priest’s escort and to steal him away to parts unknown. For its part, the Militia tried to keep the incident under wraps, but the story was just too big and leaks cropped up everywhere. It didn’t take long before the whole nation, and probably soon the entire world to know what had occurred. Regardless of this new state of affairs, Wolf’s forces in Oclait had felt the full force of the new Hodrean military crashing down on them. Most of the units that the Militia encountered in its first push into the territory collapsed almost as soon as contact was made, mirroring the famous counter attack by Ceris Coalition members during the Sentist War. And unfortunately this also came with the same headaches as during the Sentist War. Thousands upon thousands of prisoners had to be processed and secured as the Militia tried to keep moving deeper into the territory with the same speed it had started. In many situations it had gotten to the point where one Hodrean soldier would be casually walking two dozen or more young prisoners to temporary internment camps for processing, in almost all cases these prisoners seemed fairly compliant and many were delighted they had been captured finally. Though it seems this was Wolf’s plan all along, as captured officers detailed how Wolf’s more loyal and elite units essentially pillaged their soldiers of most useful weapons and made a quick retreat to their strongholds in Rastenburg and Boltenhagen. It was clear their intent was to dig in as hard as they could in these populated cities as they tried to figure out a way to escape the situation. In the West, the Hodrean allied warlord Armin Saller had led his own successful campaign against the waning forces of Wolf. His ragtag group of fighters had managed to push the beleaguered Sentists out of Haffkrug and drove them all the way down to the southern Border of Estaria, which had remained neutral during the conflict. And in the south, the first of its kind operation had actually occurred between Hodrea and the Sentist State. Eager to be rid of the radicals and to repair its international relations, the Sentist State offered a no strings attached deal to help the Hodreans clear out the mountainous southern region of Oclait of radical Sentists that were left behind. Though many were disturbed at the thought, it brought forward an opportunity to finally heal the deep rift that existed between the nations and for the Sentist State to put on a good face. The two nations working together managed to quickly liberate Dahlem and the labor camp to its southeast and start the march north to clean up any remaining units. – Boltenhagen, Oclait July 19th, 2023 Wolf tapped his fingers on the desk of his office in Boltenhagen. The small city had become his defacto capital after the debacle with the Ivericans at the end of the Sentist War. His still bore the scars on his body from his deadly foray into Estaria, trying to conquer the nation only to be headed off by the damned Ivericans. Luckily for him, it seemed Iverica had little interest in pursuing him deeper into the Oclai himself. He had built himself a nice little empire, of course it was a house of cards ready to collapse at any time. He had dreamed of building his own country to enrich himself, instead what he got was a depopulated burden with quibbling warlords that had been at each other’s throats for decades. There was nothing he could do to stop people fleeing this hellish place, and in some way he couldn’t blame them for trying. His last resort had been to force the creation of labor camps from prisoners that had been stolen from all over Ceris, most notably Hodrea itself. He turned around in his chair and crossed his legs, looking at a haphazard map that had been setup on a bulletin board showing the location of whatever military resources he had left. “What’s the status of our elite units?” “Almost to Rastenburg,” another man replied leaning on the wall near the bulletin board. He was one of Wolf’s more trusted commanders, Vicktor Hofer, and one of the few in his command who knew the true situation going on. “It seems the surrendering units are slowing the Hodrean Militia down enough to give them time to escape.” “Good…” Wolf mumbled. He had about four brigades of his elite units remaining, though still undermanned. At least they had pilfered enough equipment from their remaining comrades to put up a fight. And of course, they were all zealots, “Have the 3rd Regiment remain in Rastenburg, they can buy us more time from the Hodreans. The rest should come to Boltenhagen.” “I presume you’re planning our escape?” Hofer said, raising an eyebrow. “Of course… We just need time.” Wolf replied standing up and staring at the bulletin board map. “Don’t forget about Saller in the west, he’s practically wiped out our garrison at Haffkrug. He’ll be on the march here as soon as he can. I also recall that he very much didn’t like you either,” Hofer said with a smirk. He took pleasure occasionally in messing with the beleaguered Kommandant, especially since Wolf couldn’t just be rid of him. “Yes, I am quite aware of that. I should have wiped him out when I had the chance. We have an opportunity to flee… the North Adlantic Union isn’t sending ships after us and Hodrea has virtually no navy to speak of.” “Then we have a path to Nesneubar? I hope your negotiations went well.” Hofer said. For the past couple weeks Wolf had been in tiring negotiations with many of Nesneubar’s criminal elements to help smuggle them away from the warzone. Of course in Nesneubar anyone could be a criminal, and definitely anyone in their government. “Yes, they went fine. It’s just a matter of their payment.” Wolf groaned, “Start getting what we need from the populace. Every valuable, every solidus or pound or penny.” “There’s already unrest since the people know Hodrea is coming, it won’t go over well.” “Then shoot them until they comply. This doesn’t end here…” Wolf snaps at Hofer.
  8. TO: The Federation of Baltica FROM: The Kingdom of Seylos The Kingdom of Seylos wishes to increase the bid of our contested plot with the Presidential Directorate of Aurora to the price of 250 million Adapton Solidus. OOC: I'm writing this just in case me and Aurora don't come to a deal first.
  9. We can certainly make one. It could be a tribunal for more several crimes, and leave punishment to individual nations for small things like stealing a small amount of things. I would say that the AN Command shouldn't be using the Red Cross standards since one is a civilian organization and the other is primarily military in nature. They would operate in very different ways. I think the easiest way to address this is to simply use existing UN policy on these matters. I believe the hierarchy would be ANSC > Commander in Charge >Whatever groups are working in the command. Again it's mainly a military command, the Assembled Nations can assign civilian organizations to work in tandem with the military command to do things. In terms of loyalty to the AN vs loyalty to home country, the only thing I imagine that could possibly change how that is expressed it where their pay is coming from and the culture from where their home is. As stated by the UN itself "All military personnel working under the Blue Beret are first and foremost members of their own national armies and are then seconded to work with the UN for periods normally of up to one year in the field, or two years in the UN headquarters." There seems to be no expectation of loyalty to the UN over their home nation. Which makes sense. And since all peacekeepers are voluntary contributions by member states, presumably those troops would have orders to cooperate, otherwise why would they even be there?
  10. Just wanted to create this thread to dump everything we need while planning our operation in Velaheria. First thing I wanted to run past everyone is our plan going into Velaheria. I've kinda written up a framwork I'd like everyone to look at. It can be a bit vague at times (mainly because I'm not a military planner or diplomat) but I think it gets us on the right footing. Purpose of this command. The purpose of the Assembled Nations Command Velaheria is to ensure the safety and security of the people of Velaheria from any outside military force and assist in recovering the country from the effects of the war with Dolchland.

This command must create a framework that prevents these obstacles from derailing our efforts in Velaheria. Protection and Capability This command will create a structure where military units from all contributor nations are evaluated for their military capabilities in the field.

This also includes creating an environment where medical and engineering personnel are able to conduct their work without fear of violence from potential combatants. Create a system that appropriately protects humanitarian aid distributed throughout Velaheria. Create a system that deals with crimes committed against peacekeepers working underneath Assembled Nations authority. Performance and Accountability Create a performance assessment system that can gauge the operational readiness of all military units involved in peacekeeping operations. Ensure that peacekeeping personnel are appropriately educated on the local culture and language. Create a system that deals with potential peacekeeper misconduct and apply it to all military units in operation. Peacebuilding and Sustainable Peace Establish a robust diplomatic corps within Velaheria in order to create an environment where peaceful talks can be held between all stakeholders in possible conflicts within the nation. Create a system that effectively distributes participant nations resources to this command, and ensure those resources are used effectively in the field for whatever their final purpose might be. Local and Glubal Partnerships Ensure that this command can establish good relations with local communities and create partnerships with local governance and important groups to create an atmosphere of trust between this command and the local people. Incorporate Assembled Nations economic efforts with this commands security mission on a local level. Maintain a network of global partnerships that will fuel the recovery of Velaheria and ensure that this command’s mission is not threatened.
