Heh, the Tamurinian government's as fragile as a house of cards...

 

Yeah, I was wondering what would happen if the Liberty Fighters (LF) start attempting to resist the Marsitranian and Tagmatine enforcement of peace... Would the other nations who are supporting the LF come to their aid and try to defeat the "peace-enforcers", so that they can get to grips with the Reichlanders?

 

The landings would also be a major distraction for the Reichlanders, as Hos has shown in his posts that the loyalists will try to force back the landings. The forces committed to do this would allow the LF to create more havoc in other areas of the nation, therefore sort of defeating the idea of enforcing the peace.

 

I also assume that no other nation knows what every other nation is doing. For example, I suppose that the Tamurinian government thinks that it's the only one supporting the LF, even though there must be about a half-dozen other governments doing so, including the Tagmatine one, even though that has now stopped. I don't think that any other nation knows about Marsitrania and Tagmatium's plans, although the movement of the Southern Battle Fleet will obviously be seen and set wheels a-churning across the region.

I agree with your thoughts on this.

 

As soon as it becomes public that tamurinian weapons were used to engage tagmatine forces, the current Leonhardt/Hartman-government will fall and a more "rough" Tamurin will enter the european stage, fighting against the North-Eastern Imperialists and with itself...

 

This could make Tamurin much more interesting, although I wouldn't like to live in it...

Tagmatium, given the state of affairs between your nation and Deltannia (Let's just say not so friendly tongue.gif ), I may step up to the plate to help the Libery Fighters. I won't do anything super active. I may defend them and give them supplies, but I don't think I will pursue an agressive campaign for the following reasons:

 

1. I want to move onto other projects that are not necessarily violent (depends on the reactions.... mwahaha rolleyes.gif )

2. I'm coming out of a previous engagement

3. I'm not a warmonger. (I'm just an idealist)

 

Therefore, if the Liberty Fighters attempt to fight nonetheless, and you start to attack them, I will defend with limited units. I currently only really have naval forces, with some air cover. Probably whatever marines are onboard ship as well. So I've got a veil, nothing much else. Instead, I may recruit "my" good old mercenary force as seen in the past to do the stuff for me. Thus, any real fighting would probably be from them and not Deltannia (perhaps you wouldn't necessarily find out who paid them?)

 

I'm ranting again....

@Delt: I think our nations have had a virtual state of war since your civil war, although Tagmatium wouldn't at all wish it to blossom into full-scale war, not with the Adapton situation. Proper war would make life difficult to move troops to Adaptus in the future, and it may have to be fought to a conclusion this time, which might mean war with Ide, your nation's protector last time. In all, not a good route to go down tongue.gif.

 

Fighting against your mercenaries would be less offensive, although it would allow, if their paymasters got found out, a nice propaganda offensive, and the same really goes for anyone who backs the rebels against Marsitrania and Tagmatium?s movements for peace.

 

@Tam: Sounds like the ground for a military coup...

I haven't decided how I'll react to the "peace-enforces" yet. As the Fuhrer sid, it will be considered an act of war, but I don't think he'll follow through with it.

 

As for the LF's, I don't know if they will resist you yet. They think only Mari is coming, obuisly becuase Tam hasnt sent a message to the LFs saying otherwise. And they dont know the exact landing date, only that it will be around the First of Septmber which was stated in a message to them.

 

It will be intersetting. smile.gif

Marsitrania,

 

I would have liked you to not RP that whole sceene in the town. If it is just southwest of my Capital, and with a civil war brewing, I'm sure I would have had military men there. I need a chance to respond, you can't just take the town. You have to give the other people a chance to respond, and you can't say my troops withdrew, unless I said they withdrew.

Maybe I didn't clarify. We didn't actually seize a village, all we took were a few abandoned buildings on the outskirts of one. Unoccupied areas were chosen for us to set up the firebases, or sparsely occupied ones. The paratroopers got overambitious and attacked a police precinct, but we withdrew from the town proper. Also most of the casualties inflicted were against local police forces, NOT the military.

 

Given the state of Reichland's military and their unconcentrated division of forces, I didn't think I underestimated their strength. No populated areas were taken, although one village was briefly invaded for the space of half an hour or so. And I didn't say this in that post in particular, but it's a process that's being repeated all across the countryside along the rough territorial borders of the Liberty Fighters and the government - I imagine 16-20 other such bases are simultaneously being established. I chose to focus on this particular one in the story post because it is closest to Berlian, the coastline, and was the first group to drop - hence the designation for the forward operating base "Condor One."

 

I probably should have mentioned some of this stuff in a separate OOC post ahead of time, and I apologize for that, but it was late when I was writing the draft. In any case, our soldiers are on their own for the next 10-12 hours until combat engineers arrive to physically construct the base areas, and you have plenty of time to take advantage of that to try to dislodge them. If you'd prefer we can work out some sort of turn-based thing that determines who has the initiative to set the pace of these battles. I was not trying to be overly powerful, but because this is the first mission and the initial insertion operation, a massive failure would basically put me out of the conflict entirely and I fully intended to play out a longer scenario than that.

 

So again I'm sorry if you think I took too much ground - in reality we're not taking anything but the unpopulated small areas in which we need to establish our operating bases. I had the paratroopers raid the police building because I thought it was somewhat more exciting than watching them sit and dig in for six hours.

We must have got our signals crossed. I do not think you took too much land, I just wish I would have had an oppurtunity to respond to the attack on the town. Also, I wish I would have know it was happening other places too, becuase then I would have deployed more foreces.

Mostly my fault. Anyway I won't post today so feel free to take the time to begin the engagements and set up the scenario however you want. You can even drive some of my troops back if you want, but keep in mind that the land corridor we've dropped over will be supported by Marsitrania's air force, and the Tagmatines are coming from the sea to link up with us too, so resistance will harden once their support troops and main battle tanks reach us. I didn't specify really the exact positions of any of my forces since I wanted to leave that at your liberty (since you're making the maps and such, feel free to place my base/landing locations, I don't mind).

 

Sorry about that. sweatdrop.gif

Tagmatium Rules Posted on Sep 2 2006, 09:57 AM

  The willingness of the Mongol-Swedes to act as the world's police is beginning to offend Tagmatium...

 

Or perhaps the Mongol-Swedes simply wanted to inspire other nations to get off their backsides and take charge of the future, to create a dynamic rush of change to sweep what they viewed as a stagnant and dying region...the CIS was evidence enough of that.

No need for apologies.

Well, the village you took, I sent well more men then you had, so I'll have you dislodges there and other places. I'll add you to the map as well. Also I might not make another IC post today, probaly later tonight if any time.

 

Hows this:

Teal being where your paratroopers dropped, and purple where Tam landed. How many paratroopers are on the ground, MAr, and how many soliders are you landing Tam?
