The Return of the King

Recommended Posts

On board an Ide Jiman NI Corps AN-2, 45 miles south of Southwatch - the president is being interviewed by an IJBC reporter...


"So, Mr President moving on from the issue of nuclear cuts - where do you stand on the restoration of the monarchy?"


"It is a neccessary step towards establishing Ide Jima as a superpower in the south - it would add a great deal of national pride to our populace, and it would also replace a massive part of the culture which was taken away by the last few governments."


"Who is to be chosen as the new monarch?"


"I believe Janichiro Kuzdan is the most direct descendant of Mitsuhiran alive today - he is his nephew, although he is 65 - no spring chicken. Mikosiru - his father is alive, but only just - he's on his deathbed, very sad indeed."


"Kuzdan's second cousin owns SAC - one of Ide Jima's largest companies, won't this widen the rich poor divide, in creating a wealthy elite?"


"That's already happened!- Under Utsure's government"


"Ok, Mr President - thank you for your time..."


"No problem - we'll announce it shortly... Save you the trouble eh?"


"haha... you'll need someone to spread it!..."




--Ide Jiman Government Announcement--


President Inishiro Heisan today announced his approval of the restoration of the Ide Jiman monarchy whilst touring forces at southwatch airbase on Rosario island. The new monarch is to be Janichiro Kuzdan - who last year returned from exile in the Sublime Principate, following the fall of communism. The governments of the following nations have been invited to send representatives to the restoration ceremony:





-The Xheng Dynasty

-Byzantium Nova

-Nevareion Nova

-Loyalist Deltannia


-Haken Rider








We understand if governments are unable to send representatives. An army march past is planned - as the monarch in theory is head of the army. Any nations wishing to contribute a company of troops are welcome. If any national leaders wish to attend, we would accept very gladly.

(I'll fastforward things slightly here...)



By noon that day, guests had already started to arrive. The royal complex was far too busy with staff preparing for festivities, so Janichiro had gone to visit the home of his friend Aichi Jiangwei - former head of the Ide Jiman military, and now commander of forces in the central ranges.


"Today is a great day Janichiro - you shouldn't be so nervous!"


"It isn't easy - being pushed into the limelight this quickly"


"You're saying you don't want to be Emperor?"


"No, no - I would love to be emperor, still I am just being nervous..."


There was a knock at the door, a messenger from Inishiro Heisan arrived - to tell him that the plane bringing the Akiiryan prince was on the final stretch leading into Chang intl. airport in Serekan.


"I shall make ready to greet our ally, how are other preparations Aichi?"


"TZDS-9 Have declared central Serekan to be safe for proceedings. Security is paramount - there are snipers on every building and road blocks guarding the entire area which is to be seen by our guests."




"TZDS have already foiled a bomb attempt by an extremist native animist group - it was minimal threat anyway."


"Well then! Get our car ready, we must go to the airport to greet our friends!"




Outside preperations were going well. An ornament seating area for guests had been set up. Each representative and 5 members of their entourage were provided with seating. The national leaders would be in the front row, with military leaders behind, and other members behind them. The road from the Serekan barracks - which were next to the MOD building right across to People's square and the royal complex were cordoned off for the event. 600 Members of the Serekan Police SP unit were patrolling the area - along with operatives from Ide Jima's secret services, TZDS and TZDS-9.


Infront of the stand, members of the secret service brushed up on how not to insult the Akiiryan prince, and how to react in emergency scenarios. A few members of the stormtrooper motorised regiment practised moving across the square in formation on motorbikes whilst on the far side of the square a policeman chased a sniffer dog which he had lost control of. On all four sides of the square, sniper teams watched proceedings through their scopes. There were 30 teams in total - 20 with Dragunov SVDs, 10 With Barrett 'Light Fifty' heavy sniper rifles.


Things were falling into place well. Overhead news helicopters roared as the Vice President - Ylane Murtan inspected the area at 9 in the morning - 6 hours before proceedings began...

SUBJECT: The Crowning of Janichiro Kuzdan


Dear President Inishiro Heisan,


It is with the greatest pleasure that I personally accept your invitation to come the the crowning of your new monarch, Janichiro Kuzdan.


The opportunity of personally meeting the new leader of your honorable nation is a chance I would not want to miss.


Please forgive my overdue reply. Had I received this invitation anytime sooner, some of our military forces would have surely taken part in your parade.


Instead of requesting a naval escorte, it is still possible to arrange some aircraft from the nearby Orioni Military Island. A brief reply from your part will suffice to arrange this.


With the kindest regards,

And special congratulations to Janichiro Kuzdan,

I remain cordially yours,


H.R.H. Empress Orioni

We are glad to see that Empress Orioni has decided to attend this event. The event is to be held in Serekan in the near future. Orioni air force escort jets will be permitted in our airspace, or an IJAF squadron could escort you - we leave that decision in your hands. Nonetheless, thank you for choosing to attend,


President Inishiro heisan.

OOC: Dang, I just lost my post...... Anyway, Sorry I didn't reply early, I wasn't sure how to do this since you invited only Loyalist Deltannia. Anyway, I'll try not to get intertwined with the war here.


The Councilmen stepped off of the ship along with the one Senator. He had been on a foreign tour when the takeover occurred, to his good luck. They had to explain who they were before guards lowered their weapons, it would make sense to mistake them for Nationalist leaders.


After the tensions wore off, they were directed to the ceremonies, glad to be here than anywhere else.

If this is no problem, they will travel by two govermental jets with a light escort. Chairman Deruyter excuses himself, because he shall have to leave sooner, because of internal affairs in our nation.


We thank you for the invitation.
