The Beginning of Mithril


Mithril

Recommended Posts

For the past few months there has been an enourmous amount of activity in a small office building in the downtown of some city in and undisclosed nation. Saruwatari Sato, and 31 other people in the building have been working on plans for a new organization dubbed "Mithril".

Sato and his first sergeant stare at a computer monitor, a blue glow eminates from the screen, on it are the plans and schematics for their mainline fleet and naval facility. The flagship of the ship appears to be immense.

 

1st Sergenat: "Sir, this is a huge ship, how is Mithril going to pay for it? We only have 114 million in our accounts right now and our benefactors aren't yet willing to pledge full support sir."

 

Sato: "Aren't willing? Release a rough schematic of our facilities, that will convince them to pledge their support. Once they see how much of a difference this team can make to the world they will be convinced of our cause. If this fleet ever gets off the ground we will be able to play a major role in the improvement of mankind and the better of this world. Plan the presentation of our schematics to our benefactors and open invitations to anyone willing to come. We need that support"

 

1st SGT: "Yes sir!" He salutes and leaves the room.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Two Days later this invitation arrives at every capital of almost every country...

 

Dear [Country Leader Here],

You may have heard of us, you may not have, but we, Mithril, Invite you or a representative to come to the presentation dinner of the Mithril Task Force. Mithril is an organization dedicated to stopping crime, terror and injustice. With the formation of this task force Mithril will be able to prevent terrible events before they happen. Mithril would be able to aid anywhere in the world at almost anytime. Mithril personnel are dedicated to saving the lives of millions. But before Mithril becomes an active force we ask you to come and attend the unveiling of the plans for our counter terrorism task force and fleet. Your support will help save humanity.

 

The location of the conference is printed on the back of the letter.

 

Regards,

- Saruwatari Sato - Mithril

The letter arrived on Ling Cao's desk. The Supreme Commander glanced at it, and laughed. 'This must be some kind of joke? Maybe it's an Akiiryan plot to catch us out.'

His aide nodded. 'It sounds like something that lot would do.'

'Well then, we'll send Colonel Bottle. His great-grandfather, old Crust, gave them a kicking in the Tamurin Civil War. They'll love that.'

The aide frowned. 'Sir...Colonel Bottle isn't a diplomat....'

Ling Cao grinned. 'I know! Inform the SMC of my decision, and send a reply to this...Mithril.'

'Yes sir...By the way, sir, Colonel Valiani wanted to speak to you again.'

'Did he? How nice for him....'

The Holy Emperor smiled as he saw the envelope on his desk. He'd been sending Mithral money for years under an assumed name. They generally proved useful when he needed someone with their job description. He sat down and searched for his letter opener. Where had the secretary put it... Finally, he gave up, and used his old service saber to slice open the envelope. Overkill, he thought, but what can you do...

 

Dear Holy Emperor and Marshal of the Armies Christoph Tinsman of Vanarambaion

-For the last few days preperations have been made at the location that was specified in the letter. The location is a large hotel in which the represenative may stay free of cost and all guests have been invited into the conference hall for the beginning of the presentation. After everyone has been seated, the lights in the hall dim except for that on the podium and large screen. Once the guests quieted down, Saruwatari Sato, the leader of Mithril stepped up to the podium carrying a tan folder, setting it down on the top of the podium and he began to speak.-

 

Sato: "Hello and welcome to the long awaited presentation of Mithril's hard work and dedication. Today we will reinforce Mithril's dedication to the world by presenting Mithril's Task Force, including our land based facility, personell and Mithril's flagship to be, the Arnemetia. Please hold all questions until the end of the presentation. First I give you the statement of the purpose of Mithril. The world is a dangerous place. There is war in Ide Jima, war in Sevrun, war in hotspots all around the world. Over powered and under siege the peaceful countries of this world desperately struggle to keep the disorder from spilling over their borders. As an answer to this growing disorder an assault and counter terrorism task force under the Mithril organization has been formed. Working out of a naval fleet, Mithril is able to strike anywhere on the globe in a moments notice. Their combined vigilance and courage strives to save the lives of millions. But to build this task force, Mithril needs the help of everyone here. We are gaining support but still do not have enough donations to contract out the fleet. Anyways to stop groveling, here is what we do have, blueprints and plans for the Mithirl Task Force, first to see, is Mithril's Land Based naval facility..."

 

-He points to the large screen as the display changes from the Mithril insignia to a topographical map of an island.-

"This is the island upon which the Mithril naval facility is to be built. Each grid square represents one kilometer. The location of the island will only be revealed to Mithril personnel, Mithril's construction contractors and to civillians under extraordinary circumstances. This island is to host not only the maintainence facility for Mithril's flagship, it is also to act as the main administration, barracks, training and control center for the Mithril organization. We can finally move out of our small crummy office building where we reside now. Mithril soldiers will be equipped and trained with the upmost best that we can acquire. With your support these soldiers may be the best in the world. Mithril will unfortunately not be complete without it's Naval Flagship, the Arnemetia."

 

-again points to the screen as it changes from the base facility to a rough plan of the Arnemetia.-

"This submarine, once completed, is to be the most advanced ship in the world. It will be capable of speeds over 50 knots with the latest EMFC and Superconductive Propulsion technology, it will be able to launch up to four small VTOL aircraft at a time and at over 210+ meters long and 40+ Meters wide, excluding diving rudder, the Arnemetia will also be the largest sub in the water, displacing over 40,000+ tons of water when submerged. This Submarine will be Mithril's sword with which to cleanse the world of evil and return this planet to a peaceful state. And to deter any negative notions, rumors or ideas about us. Mithril will not work for just any country. Mithril is an assault task force deisgned to fight terrorism, insurgency and oppressive rule. Mithril does not work for oppressive dictatorships, genocidal facists or lunatic socialists. We are not in the same group as the mercenaries who work for these types of terrible countries and people. Mithril is an organization dedicated to stopping crime, stopping opperssion and to saving the lives of millions of innocent people. Thank you all for listening, and now, if you have any quesions now would be the time to ask them."

 

-the screen changes back to Mithirl's insignia and the light return to their normal brightness-

 

OOC: I am leaving again for work in half an hour, but only for three hours(overtime), but after that I can really chug on questions. biggrin.gif Hope you liked this.

The leader of the Akiiryan delegation stood.

 

"Why, pray tell, should we fund you when we have our own militaries? More pointedly why should we fund an organisation that might one day decide that our governments need to be corrected? Who, or what, is Mithril's ultimate moral judge on what is right or wrong?"

Petro Phelt of the Niederoestereichian Delegate rose out of his seat.

 

"Niederoestereich supports Akiiryu's comment, why fund this so called, "organization". How do we know that after you have taken our funds and bought your weapons, that you will not attack a random country for the hell of it, or stab us in the back. As far as we are concerned, how do we know that you, yourselves are not the terrorists.?

 

"Also, we wish to question on whom will be policing you, saying when you have "gone to far". What if your view on "what is evil" is different from a majority of the nations? This Crusade of yours against terrorism and tyranny may be well and all, but Niederoestereich sees it as any countries right to chose which form of government suits them best, Fascist, Communist or whatever the case may be. Your claims to be "in striking distance of anywhere in a moments notice,? does not sit well with us, we will not be threatened, constantly monitored or have foreign military vessels in our waters."

 

Phelt, then returned to his seat

"We can see why Mithril has been formed, and respect such a noble endeavour, striving towards a more peaceful mankind.

 

We would like to know on what grounds would you help a nation? Would it be when a nation is going to war against another, more despotic nation, or if a smaller nation has been invaded? Also, how would Mithril be contacted? Is there a special radio wavelength, like International Rescue, or do we all get given a telephone number, like that for police, but on a governmental scale?

 

Also, once a nation has provided the organisation with cash, would Mithril then help support this nation, even if it fell into it's 'oppresive rule' category?

 

I realise I have swamped you with questions, but the Holy Empire will be grateful if they could be answered."

The tamurinian delegate sat quietly. There was no need to repeat what Akiiryu and Niederoesterreich already said.

 

He made a few notes though that he passed on to friends and allies (Akiiryu, Ide Jima, Vanarambaion, Tagmatium):

 

- No political command; seems like a private military organization

 

- Possibility to put it under international control? Otherwise maybe pre-emptive strike against "Mithril" to prevent attacks against our own countries

 

- Massive submarine; are they really able to build this thing (technological problems, funding)? What can we do to protect ourselves from it?

 

- Proposition: Everyone should look with satellite systems for this island!

"Why, pray tell, should we fund you when we have our own militaries? More pointedly why should we fund an organisation that might one day decide that our governments need to be corrected? Who, or what, is Mithril's ultimate moral judge on what is right or wrong?"

 

"Our military is to be used where a countries' normal military would not. In situations where political tendencies are too dangerous or the military force just is not there. Mithril would be able to stop terrorist strikes before they happen, atually prevent crimes against humanity, not stop them after they have already done so much damage!

You second question, a very good one might I add, I can easily answer. Even if we are funded by a good government, if that government turns over to oppressive rule, starts commiting genocide or something in that manner, we will combat that government.

Lastly Mithril's moral judgement is that of what is good for humanity and what is not. Stopping genocide, helping with starvation, fighting terrorism, destroying drug lords, stopping oppressive militia, fighting slavery, the list goes on, but Mithril is for the cause of good. Mithril attempts to keep harm to other people as low as possible, only attacking what must be attacked to cipple the enemies of the good of humanity."

 

"Niederoestereich supports Akiiryu's comment, why fund this so called, "organization". How do we know that after you have taken our funds and bought your weapons, that you will not attack a random country for the hell of it, or stab us in the back.

Your claims to be "in striking distance of anywhere in a moments notice,? does not sit well with us, we will not be threatened, constantly monitored or have foreign military vessels in our waters."

 

"I know that there is no way I can ever truly prove to you that Mithril is a beneficial organization until we can begin enforcing our moral cause. To justify that, as I answered the previous questions, Mithril works to better humanity, that means if even our once allies begin to destroy what we strive to maintain, we will be forced to turn on them, but without damn good evidence that a government, organization or group is commiting atrocities against humanity, we will not attack. We do not attack random nations! Great amounts of planning will go into just navigating outside nations' territorial waters, making sure not to cross any more majot politcal boundaries that we already have. We are not the terrorists, we are enemies of the terrorists.

To your secondary concern, which I believe is a fine fine question. No single man is in direct control of Mithril. I, being the spokesperson and captain of the fleet have two more counterparts with the exact same amount of power as me, under us there are advisors and there are hundreds of checks and balances. If any moral and supporting nation would like, we can hire selected crew of your reccomendation if that at all aids your take on Mithril. We are open to outside suggestions.

Mithril's "crusade" against terror is for the better of humanity. There may be benevolent socialist, communistic, despot, whatever, Mithril would be fine if they were that government, as long as they are not oppressive to their people, other nations or any part of the world, Mithril will have no issues with them at all. Lastly, as I said, we will stay to international waters at almost all times, with the exception of strike missions on enemy countries where we may enter their waters, Mithril, if ever in territorial waters will remain surfaced with our insignia flag raised. Our ability to strike anywhere is to be able to prevent terrible events before they happen, if we had been active earlier, Mithril would have greatly strived to prevent something like the destruction of Sevrun's capital where countless civillian lives were lost."

 

We can see why Mithril has been formed, and respect such a noble endeavour, striving towards a more peaceful mankind.

 

We would like to know on what grounds would you help a nation? Would it be when a nation is going to war against another, more despotic nation, or if a smaller nation has been invaded? Also, how would Mithril be contacted? Is there a special radio wavelength, like International Rescue, or do we all get given a telephone number, like that for police, but on a governmental scale?

 

Also, once a nation has provided the organisation with cash, would Mithril then help support this nation, even if it fell into it's 'oppresive rule' category?

 

I realise I have swamped you with questions, but the Holy Empire will be grateful if they could be answered.

 

"The grounds on which Mithril will help a nation are, if the nation is in international crisis, say a peaceful, non-oppressive nation was being invaded by an oppressive and didactic regime, Mithril would definitely interlude until other support could arrive. Mithril is not an army, Mithril is an international Task Force designed to combat small strikes against destructive enemies.

Mithril can be contacted via represenatives that we would like to leave in almost every nation. If that does not suit them, then the use of hardwire phone, or mail can be used. Use the return address on the letters that you all recieved to come here. We will respond to that.

Lastly, and finally, Mithril will fight a nation that becomes oppressive or harmful to humanity, even if that nation once supported Mithril."

 

-drinks a whole pitcher of water then takes a deep breath-

Are you telling us that your organisation is no more than a glorified Mercenary agency, which has been given a theme in order to attract money from governments?

The Emperor was getting a little sleepy from dinner when the questioning began. He was pretty sure he wouldn't have to stand up - he knew the nations assembled around him well enough to know they didn't trust anyone so far as they could throw them. The Ide Jiman representative was of particular interest to him. Undoubtedly the man would ask a particularly stinging question at some point. The Emperor had seen him several times before, and he hadn't been disappointed yet.

 

However, it was Akiiryu and Niedereostereich that surprised him by standing up first. A series of hard questions later, the Ide Jiman bombshell was laid in the lap of the Mithril captain. The Emperor smiled faintly - still not disappointed. Without allowing the man time to respond to the Ide Jiman question, the Emperor rose to his feet.

 

"I think what my Ide Jiman friend was referring to was the apparent contradictions in your presentation up to this point. First of all, you said you would combat a regime that turns bad even if that regime formerly funded you. You still have not defined what a "bad" nation is. For example, a nation that has one party, has speakers up spouting the government ideals to the people all day, who keeps a very close watch on the goings-on of the people - is that an oppressive regime? Or are you proposing to take a survey every time you consider taking action, to see if the people of that nation feel oppressed? For that matter, how do you define all these terms that you're using - genocide, slavery, oppression, terrorism, even militia - all of these are complicated terms. Who decides whether labor is slavery or an honest, though low-paying job? Then you have said that it will take good evidence to turn on your former allies. How will you collect this evidence? How will you decide whether losing a funding source it more important than your noble order? I would like to know a little more about the internal structure of Mithril. Triumvirates have historically been the worst possible form of government, and with the number of checks and balances you've described, we could be years trying to stop genocide, not stopping it before it starts. That could possibly make a situation worse than it already is, rather than better. I also have qualms about your hiring whole crews from other nations. Those crews still have allegiance to their home country, and if that country were to go rogue, where would you be? I also ask you how you plan to stop nations from oppressing other nations. In the international system we have here, power politics is the game of choice by all but about a handful of nations. Are you going to attack all of them as well? These are specific questions that we need answered." After a slight pause, with a deadpan face, the Emperor added, "And I like your trick with the water, can all your representatives do that?"

 

After sitting down, one of his bodyguards handed him a note from the Tamurin delegate. Reading it quickly, he pulled out his phone, dialed a number, and spoke softly into it for a few minutes. Hanging it up, he scribbled down a return note and sent it back to the Tamurin delegate:

 

- No political command; seems like a private military organization - exactly. This can be quite dangerous. suggest caution.

 

- Possibility to put it under international control? Otherwise maybe pre-emptive strike against "Mithril" to prevent attacks against our own countries - perhaps this would work well for your "Council of Nations?" No nukes for them under any circumstances.

 

- Massive submarine; are they really able to build this thing (technological problems, funding)? What can we do to protect ourselves from it? - we can build it for them, so we know its weaknesses if they ever happen to go rogue.

 

- Proposition: Everyone should look with satellite systems for this island! - We have three possible locations. Currently searching known travelers to those locations and deep-scanning with infra-red and others to determine activity on islands. Will inform allied group as to progress once it arrives.

These are specific questions that we need answered." After a slight pause, with a deadpan face, the Emperor added, "And I like your trick with the water, can all your representatives do that?"

 

 

"To the first man, Mithril, a glorified and themed mercenary organization? No. As I have already said, Mithril is not the average mercenary group, we dont work for specific clients, Mithril works for humanity, no country asked us to hold this presentation. Mithril Is here because we feel the need for an organization built to save lives. Nothing on as grand a scale as Mithril exists and without it, more people will die. We don't want your support for ourselves, we want it to help humanity.

 

Now to the second and obviously more deliberate man, first, on deciding what is an oppressive regime, or situation or whatever. Mithril will influence on a situation when innocent people are in distress, if a country is full of communists who love being communists, thats great! But if there is a small group of people who decide they don't like communism and try to leave but aren't allowed, that is where Mithril would asses the situation and decide whether to step in or not. With your slavery example, it would be fine, only if those people whom were earning low pay were satisfied with their lifestyle, if they aren't allowed to leave their low paying job then they are being oppressed! Mithril steps in when oppressive governments step out of line. I hope this answer has been clear enough for you sir.

Now onto your issue with internal structure. The 'triumverate' as you say is the head of the submarine. The captain gives an order, one of the two ranking men seconds it then forwards it onto the helmsman, fire control, whatever the command is for. The three of us will always discuss a decision before giving a direct command, we have advisors, intelligence, and enough crew to get us the information to make the right decisions. We are legislating on laws here, this does not take near as much time as I believe you are making it out to be. On what you said about a whole crew being hired from one country, let me clarify, we would not hire a whole crew from one country, we would hire a whole crew consisting of people from many different countries, but we do not hire directly from governments. We can't just hire tribal natives to work for us, they don't know how to operate a technologically advanced submarine as well as a naval engineer would. Mithril is an organization based on vigilance, strength and the will to save mankind. I believe I have answered your questions sir. And I do like my water thank you.

 

Any more questions?"

 

OOC: I was kidding about the water thing, and man are these hard questions! Worse than the AP exam sheesh.

The Akiiryan Chief Delegate Examined Note, thought for a moment and then wrote his responses. He then Returned the note to the Tamurin delegate.

 

No political command; seems like a private military organization

 

True, they seem little more than a mercenary group, made even more dangerous by their obvious self-righteousness. The Akiiryan government has grave concerns about how this group will effect regional stability.

 

Possibility to put it under international control? Otherwise maybe pre-emptive strike against "Mithril" to prevent attacks against our own countries

 

We will consider all options.

 

 

Massive submarine; are they really able to build this thing (technological problems, funding)? What can we do to protect ourselves from it?

 

Not without funding and outside help. Akiiryu will give neither at this stage. Their plans do, however, indicate areas research for our military. We will not rule out destroying this vessel while being constructed if it becomes obvious this group is a threat to our security.

 

Proposition: Everyone should look with satellite systems for this island!

 

Agreed. Once The Island is located Akiiryu will put place it under surveillance.

 

--------------

 

A copy of the response was sent to the Vanarambaion delegation, another note was attached.

 

The Akiiryan government is less than comfortable with the proposals made by this organisation. The Prince suggests we sign the proposed mutual aid and defense treaty as soon as possible.

 

Your comments on this organisation and proposed approaches to dealing with it would be much apperciated.

 

 

--------------

 

The delegate then stood.

 

"Do you not see the threat the existance of such an organisation as you propose offers to regional security and peace? What makes you think you have the right to dictate policy to our nations? Your personal self-righteousness and the self-righteousness of you organisation concerns my government. You would take the role of judge, jury and execution in situations you have not right to judge, let alone become involved in. Your existance would encourage two bit terrorist organisations and criminal organisations to claim oppression in the hope you would come to their aid. WHO JUDGES YOU?"

Everyone judges Mithril. If our funding is cut, Mithril is crippled and the funding comes from countries like you. We realize that many nations feel extremely negatively towards the creation of Mithril and that is understandable. And may I add again, before any major decision is made, it is reviewed and discussed by our advisiors and ranking officers. We would obviously inform all nations that we will be entering their territory, crossing it, whatever it is, we will only perform actions under the disgression of the participating nation. I do not know any other way to reaffirm Mithril's cause. What does Mithril have to do for everyone here to earn your trust!?

"Sir, i put it to you, that any escaped criminal can form an organisation to 'fight for the minority'. Through this action, u may infact make a situation worse and cause more deaths then u aim to save, cause more damage psycologically, in terms of resources and thus achieveing no real goal. It still seems to Niederoestereich, that Mithril's aims are based soley to 'sh*t stir' fanatics whom wish to coup d'etat their system. Even in a 'perfect and free demoncracy' some people, somewhere will feel that the government owes them something, kick up a fuss and you will come on your noble steed to defend their honour?"

 

"I wish you to re-address this statement of which you have spoken 'Mithril Is here because we feel the need for an organization built to save lives'[i/]

Let me understand from were you are coming from, you wish to create an orgainisation to root out 'evil' in this world by fighting for a minority, by crushing the majority with brutal force, this Massive submarine of yours is testiment to this."

The tamurinian delegate answered.

 

"To earn our trust, or at least mine, you have to do a lot.

 

A start would be, that you'd place yourself under a political command, like the failed "Council of Nations" or the United Nations.

 

My country is doesn't feel comfortable with a military organization without a political command. If something goes wrong in one of your missions - and don't tell us it won't, you will fail one time as we all did one time - who will be responsible?

 

And what if your assessment of the situation is wrong? Intelligence reports can be exaggerated or wrong, the judgement of three people can be clouded.

 

If there's nobody there to control and if necessary stop you, Tamurin can not and will not accept a mithrilian intervention in international affairs."

-Sato's first sergrant enters from a door in the side of the room, walking up to sato with a piece of paper and handing it to him, Sato reads it-

 

-4.7 Billion Wired to Escrow Accounts 15 Minutes ago-

-Do not name donor, too hot politically-

-Proceed with meeting as you wish-

 

-Sato nods to his first sergeant, whom returns back through the door in which he came-

"Your interpretation of my words is wrong, sir. We don't fight oppression on a national scale, we cannot just crush a "majority with brutal force." We wouldn't do something like that NOR do we have the capability. Even with our submarine, we would hardly ever have a deployable force larger than 1400 men! We do not have the ability to even think of doing something so belligerant as that. It is obvious that you offer no constructive criticism at all towards Mithril and only look to the destruction of it. You are not an enemy of Mithril, nor do we have any quarrel with you. You are execused from this presentation sir and may return to your hotel suite. I hope that your nation does not take any unnecessary "precautions." Mithril has done and will do nothing to harm you if you maintain your neutrality. If you have any further questions for mithril sir, you may send a letter to the return address on the envelope. Thank You and goodbye."

-A chauffer walks to the man to escort him out-

 

To earn our trust, or at least mine, you have to do a lot.

 

A start would be, that you'd place yourself under a political command, like the failed "Council of Nations" or the United Nations.

 

My country is doesn't feel comfortable with a military organization without a political command. If something goes wrong in one of your missions - and don't tell us it won't, you will fail one time as we all did one time - who will be responsible?

 

And what if your assessment of the situation is wrong? Intelligence reports can be exaggerated or wrong, the judgement of three people can be clouded.

 

If there's nobody there to control and if necessary stop you, Tamurin can not and will not accept a mithrilian intervention in international affairs.

 

"Mithril sees and hears your proposition of a political command, our issues with a system like that is that there would have to be reps from almost every country and the amount of time that delegations will take place in order to get something done. What do you suggest here?

 

Also, if Mithril does make a mistake, we claim our responsibility, we pay fines, we clean up and rebuild.

 

I leave it to you right now."
