Vanarambaion Press Release:

 

While the state still controls all media in the Holy Confederacy, the level of alert has dropped from 'Critical' to 'Enhanced' in North Vanarambaion and raised from 'Normal' to 'Enhanced' in all other areas controlled by Vanarambaion. Ships have been removed from the patrol of North Vanarambaion and are on their way to comply with Executive Order 0923, which calls for all ships entering TCN to first dock at a Vanarambaion port. This is in retaliation for the gross breach of etiquette against the late Akiiryan Prince P'Theodanaric by the aforementioned country, and their unwillingness to apologize promptly and make amends. Vanarambaion supports Prince P'Neonaric's rise to the throne and wishes him well in the future.

*Along the coast of Akiiryu...*

 

Several of Deltannia's ships dotted the coast at various spots, a great number of ships able to divert course from the major waters of Europa. The flags were lowered to half staff, and the memorial flags were raised. The guns were primed, and in unison, all along the coast, 11 shots were heard....

 

OOC: In Deltannian customs, to observe a tragic event, the Deltannian flag is lowered to half staff, and a memorial flagpole, consisting of the memorial flag, as well as the flag of the country. That country's flag is raised to full staff (although the length of the staff is half the height of the standard flagpole, thus making it half staff), and raised below it is the memorial flag.

Executive Order 0923, which calls for all ships entering TCN to first dock at a Vanarambaion port.

Isn't that some what improbable, Van? Were a ship to sail from the south of Europa to TCN, it would have to make a masssice de-tour of at least several weeks to Vanarambaion.

ooc: If Van wants he can add Ide Jiman ports as well. Still a detour, but not quite as long.

This is interference with the International open market. Trans-National Companies had no place in this conflict. The only solution that the Government of TCN is willing to use it to compensate all Trans-National Companies, and fly the cargo into TCN. Any attack on any aircraft, or seacraft will not be tolerated.

 

TCN calls upon Governments of Europa to see sence and ceace disrupting sea traffic.

OFFICIAL TCN PRESS RELEASE

 

Tension has recently heightened in Europa after recent comments of the government. Vanarambaion had hade threats against sea traffic entering TCN.

From now on, where aviable, all cargo that is entering inot TCN will be transported by air. Were this is very expensive, very difficult, unpractical or plain impossible sea-craft will be used. These sea-craft will be protected by TCAiF. Any attempt to move, block, or destroy the ships will be defended by TCAiF.

 

A new regiment of TCAiF has been setup, exclusivly for this task. This new regiment is called TCAiF Commercial Waterbourn Protection Regiment (TCAiFCWPR, for short). Funding had been diverted from other, civillian areas to fund this new regiment. This new regiment is likely to be fully operational in 5-6 weeks (Game Time). TCAiFCWPR has the power to fire upon any non-friendly target that is threating their protectee.

Aki, do you want all this trade/navy stuff split off to its own thread?

 

Holy Imperial Press Statement

 

Once again, the imperialistic and frankly outrageous actions by the Holy Conferderacy of Vanarambaion damage international relations. What could easily be sorted out by a use of diplomatic negotiations was completely blown out of proportions as the Vanarambaion government announced that any ship wishing to trade with the GHET's ally, the Chosen Nations, must first pass through a Vanarambaion port. This is completely unacceptable, another example of the Holy Confederacy attempting to turn the whole of Europa into a series of vassal states, all paying tribute to Thule. Not only will this impact heavily on the Chosen Nations' economy, just as it is recovering from earlier events, it will also damage Tagmatium's economy, as the Chosen Nations is a main trading partner in the south of Europa. The economic pact between these two glorious nations shows this.

 

Thus, all Tagmatine vessels have been ordered not to comply with Executive Order 0923, unless they come under physical attack, there by they should comply. Any assault on a vessel owned by a Tagmatine vessel will have grave consequences on international relations. If Vanarambaion persists in doing this after several warnings, the Imperial Government may have to make sure each merchantman is escorted by a H.I.N combat ship.

 

In other news, the Scutatus class heavy destroyers have come into active service today, and are being distrubuted about the H.I.N fleets. Several are to be stationed in the Ekainak Channel or Southern fleet. The Psilus and Peltatus class ships will be completed later this year (month RL time).

 

EDIT: Spelling errors.

-Statement-

 

We have a proposal to make. As we are an ally of the Holy Confederacy, we propose that shipping be inspected in Ide Jiman ports. Admittedly this wont solve the problem outright, but the money lost from merchant shipping would be drastically cut. We would even welcome groups from Vanarambaion to do the checking. This is our proposal on the matter.

 

Until a decision is made by other nations as to take up this offer, the Ide Jiman navy and airforce are under orders to sink any vessel which comes near to TCN waters without having complied with order 0923.

Until TCN issues a full public apology for its insulting comments about the deceased Prince P'Theodanaric and pays a suitable weregeld to restore his honour, the R.A.N will stop and search all TCN shipping. All TCN assets in the Sublime Principate have be confiscated as partial payment of said weregeld.

 

The people of Haken and Tagamatium, after the noble gestures they enacted in the memory of Prince P'Theodanaric, should be ashamed to implicity support the dishonourable comments of TCN. These nations should note that TCN started this crisis with its dishonourable and insulting comments about the late Prince P'Theodanaric, they should also note they can end this crisis by offering a full apology for its comments and by paying a suitable weregeld.

Any Naval, Landbased, of Airbourn Unit attacke any vessel that is inbound for the shores of TCN, will be fired upon by TCAiFCWPR. Until the TCAiFCWPR are setup, the TCAiF Seabourd Division will take on the task. TCAiF is the best equiped and most fearson armed force in TCN, and we willuse it's full force to protect ships, and planes inbound for TCN.

You own a piece of land south of Taurmin. I kindly ask that you let me setup the TCAiFCWPR HQ on this land, as it is in the best stratigic place to protect vessels entering TCN.

We cannot set up any military installations in this area. We don't own this land, just policing this area with peacekeepers after the collapse of the Abyssioan government, an old ally of ours. We will be pulling out of this land as soon as possible, and cannot afford to stir up any resistance against this small, over-streched semi-division of peacekeepers. It is too close to Vanarambaion and her allies, and, due to the fact the 6,000 soldiers are spread across an area half the size of The Chosen Nations, and completely unsupported, we cannot risk their lives. We were surprised when no action was taken against them during the course of recent events. We will, how ever, support you in other methods.

What other ways are you willing to help. The current position of TCN is not the best place for a TCAiFCWPR HQ. The HQ needs to be nearer the mouth of the peninsula. If you could secure land for me, I will defend it. Could you not just had over a small portian of the aforementioned land (on the East coast), and TCN will defend it.

TCN, we must ask, why are you risking the live of civilian merchants and your service man and women, when all you can do is give an apology for your comment. please, you dont have to fight over this, surely we are all civilized nations here. can we not resolve this around a table, instead of around a battlefield?

Re: "Other methods"

 

To our honourable and noble allies,

To cut to the chase, we support Adaptus' proposal. We do not think that it is worth war, when you can easily settle this without wasting lives in a rather pointless war which may even be the death of your nation. Apologise to the Sublime Principate and pay their barabric weregeld, and all this can be avoided. After all, what is a few million Tanitsa, rather than lives of the Chosen Armed Forces, and possibly others if the conflict widens.

 

The situation of Vanarambaion can be considered different, of course. But this will be confronted after this incident with the Sublime Principate has be concluded. It was very disrespectful to dishonour the membory of their Prince, which could have been sorted out had you subjected the to the Chosen Nations' "crocodile tears".

 

We hope you make the right choice.

 

Yours faithfully

 

Commodus James,

Holy Emperor of Tagmatium

Subject: Weregeld

 

We can see your point of view, and aggree. Although highly dishonourable to TCN we will apologise and pay the weregeld. TCAiFCWPR will remain operational.

 

TCN PRESS RELEASE

 

The Government of TCN had decided to pay the weregeld to the SPA. The Government of TCN had also decided to apologise for its previous comments. As the SPA have confiscated all TCN assets in the in the Sublime Principate, the weregeld will not be payed until those are returned. If they have been sold/released/destroyed, as the Government of TCN suspects they have been, those assets are the full payment the SPA will get from TCN. TCAiFCWPR will still remain operational, and will monitor all seabourn ships entering TCN.

Once again TCN have chosen the path of dishonour and confrontation, rather than peace and honour. In stating they will make an apology, which it has yet to provide, it has made demands of the SPA and offered further insult to the memory Prince P'Theodanaric - may the Stag guard his soul.

 

The few insignificant TCN assets held in the SPA as partial payment of the weregeld come no where near the required weregeld payment for the insults TCN have offered the SPA.

 

To demand the return of these assests before paying the weregeld and to imply that they are a worthy compensation for the dishonourable acts of the TCN is in itself an insult to Prince P'Theodanaric - may the Stag guard his soul -his ancestors, descendants, the Baronic Council and the people of Akiiryu. These insults were further compounded by the TCN provocative declaration of its military policies in the statement it made regarding Prince P'Theodanaric's - may the Stag guard his soul - weregeld. These insults in themselves require weregeld reparations and apologies and have been added to the weregeld the SPA requires of TCN. How dare the actors of dishonour make demands during weregeld negotiations! How dare they offer further dishonour and insult by offering veiled military threats!

 

TCN have (OOC: one RL day) to offer a full formal apology and retraction of the dishnourable and insulting comments it made about Prince P'Theodanaric - may the Stag guard his soul - and pay the required weregeld. At this time the SPA also requires it pay the weregeld and offer an apology for the further insults it has offered the SPA If it does not the Sublime Principate will exact revenge on the government and people of TCN for the gross disrespect they have shown Prince Theodanaric, his ancestors, descendants, the Baronic Council and the people of Akiiryu. Revenge will be swift and devastating. TCN have been warned.

We apologised, and aggreed to pay the weregeld, but unfortunatly our offer was rejected. TCN will therfore retract the apology and not pay any weregeld to Akiiryu. All citizens of Akiiryu that are living, or visiting TCN will be detained under the Terrorism Act of 2003. All ports of entery into TCN will now be closed to people of Akiiryu. All companies trading in TCN that are of Akiiryu oragin, will have all assets inside TCN detained. All planes, ships ..etc.. that attempt to enter TCn from Akiiryu will be fired upon without question, be they military, commercial or civillian.

 

The previous statement that we made was as far as we were willing to go.

OOC:

 

1) There are NO Akiiryan assets in TCN, nor are there any Akiiryan nationals in the TCN (the SPA has followed a policy of no relations). There might be a heck of a lot there soon though...

 

2) You never made a formal apology, only stated you has decided to make one.

 

3) In relation to your question, you might want to think about your diploamtic skills a bit more.

OOC: The absence of assets or citizens from SPA in TCN is irrelavent. The order would still be issued. Anyway you cannot force citizens to leave, you can only advise them, thus providing the possability for nationals of SPA to be inside TCN.

 

IC:

 

"Sir, the message from the SPA has just been printed" the junior TCSF officer handed that seet of paper to 1st Commander Frank L'I-KI.

"sh*t, another war. I really am gettin' tired." replied 1st Commander Frank L'I-KI, after reading the short message. "Inform T'Yay, and organise the war cabinet. I am sure T'Yay will aggree with me on this one. Inform the Cabined Minister that their posts are currently defunce, TCN is now under the control of the war cabinet. Inform the Generals, and fly them here."

"YES, SIR!". The TCSF officer saluted and marched out.

Frank sighed.

 

25 mins later

 

"I would have to aggree with Frank, we need to begin mobalising, and right now" said The General for TCLD. The warcabinet was made up of T'Yay as 1st Minister, Kayne H'Emp as 2nd Minister, The Generals of TCN responcible for their own forces, Jarbo-Gale Rath, Nita-Lita Estroba, and Kale Reawe. A large group of people.

 

"MOTION PASSED." said T'Yay. "Mobalise all of TCAF. The Generals immediatly got on their secured mobile telephones to issue their respective oreders.

"I think that we should ask Tagmatium for help, and point out clauses in The Chosen-Haken Pact to Haken. We need all the help we can get." sugested Nita-Lita Estroba.

"I aggree" said a number of The Generals.

"MOTION PASSED" said T'Yay. More calls, this time to the Communications room.

 

The meeting continued in this way for many hours. TCN is mobalising for war, and the nation is under martial law. Any crime is sutiable to very harsh punishments from the newly created SS (Secret Service). There is not time for many criminal procedings in wartime. Guilty offenders are beaten up, or killed by the SS.

For years (OOC: Game Time) TCN and Tagmatium have been sturdy allies; defending each other, and growing prosperous from trade. No military aggrement has officially been signed but TCN requests the aide of Tagmatium in the war that will ensue. We must stand together in order to win.

Only recently aggreed; new clauses in The Chosen-Haken Pact, surly must be put into practice. TCN requests the help of Haken in the war that will ensue. I cannot win alone, and need your help. I hope that we can stand togeher, in my wars, in your wars and in peacetime.

OOC: The SPA is a dictatorship, it can stop citizens going to/trading with etc TCN. Moreover, given current relations between TCN and SPA I very much doubt any Akiiryan would chose TCN as a holiday spot. Ide Jima has better beaches and Vanarambaion has historical tours (battlefileds on which Akiiryans fought). Thus, I can assure you, there is no possibility. I am not, by the way, criticising the passing of the law, just telling you there are no Akiiryans to arrest, and no Akiiryan assets to grab.

IX. War will be the final solution, never the right one.

 

The attempts to come to an understandement has failed miserably, on both sides. Seeing the two nations are part of two different alliances, I suggest there will be talks, real talks, in a neutral country.
