War of Faramontese Succession


Recommended Posts

Faramount's longstanding dictator will be dying in the next few weeks, prompting a brief but intense fight to succeed him. His son-in-law will ultimately succeed, but in doing so, will do serious harm the nation's military and security services, thus leading to major gains by communist rebels, ethnic insurgents, and a radical Christian/Truthist militant group. The country will essentially fall into very serious fighting.

I've been working over the last few months to give a lot of nations a strong interest in the outcome. @Rihan is exploiting Faramount for petroleum and slaves. Both @Derthalen and @Limonaia are exploiting Faramount for petroleum and coal, have a substantial expatriate presence in Faramount, and have close religious and cultural ties with Faramount. @Seylos's Monarch has a major operation in the nation, which I believe its planning to use as a recruitment base. @Fulgistan is funding and arming the communist rebels, whose government is hosted in Bogd Gioro. I'm also told that @North Dniester might be interested in directly invading to get access to petroleum.

So I figured it'd be a pretty good idea to establish a general thread to discuss the extent to which people might be planning to get involved.

I would imagine due to proximity we might be very active in tracking the conflict. I am not sure how, as this is just an initial post and me flagging this to ponder how we would react, but I feel like we would want to do something about it. My first thoughts would probably be heavy humanitarian aid efforts, diplomatic actions such as condemnations (as if that actually means much though haha), and welcoming asylum seekers/refugees. I think conceivably Oyus would open itself up to hosting another country's military for the right reasons - nothing we would be neutral about, unlike how we are with Aluxia.

Of course these are all initial thoughts on possibilities and nothing is final, per the intentions of having this thread.

@Faramount I like your open and clear take on this. We chatted about it on Discord. And I'd sure like to get a piece of that energy-pie. Financial backing can go to whichever side promises the most lucrative deal.

But I'm also conscious I cannot get invested in this story. Because right now I have too many parallel stories going on already. And in May I want to send Mr Simizi on his journey.

So I think the best commitment I can make is writing a handful of news stories. Is that alright with you?

Salvia would probably support the Christian group, possibly with arms and/or advisors.  Would this be a problem?

You're certainly welcome to! But I'd note that this isn't just a Christian group, but rather, a Christian/Truther group. Specifically, the Disciples are a radical Christian Imperialist group.

Due to how far away Faramount is and how the new government is meant to be reducing military spending, Prymont will just watch from afar for now. We're no strangers to political meddling though, or covering up war crimes, so if any of those are useful, give us cold boys a shout.

I'm still trying to workout some of the world around Faramount first, but I'm hoping to get it going in the next few weeks. A big part of why I started the whole talk on Christianity is to get a base from which to design what will be an important faction in the civil war. Once I've gotten a better breakdown for Christian Imperialism and the Disciples of Balconi, I'll be in better shape. I'd also like to see a definitive answer on the Derthalen thing, as that could have impacts for me.

A perfect opportunity for the relationships between our nations to grow. SSI humanitarian workers will gladly do their job alongside their Oyusard sisters and brothers.

I got scared when I saw “Derthalen” lol.  In reality, I would likely not support the group then/ they’re just too different from Catholicism , being not only a branch off of Limonian Catholicism but related to Derthalen Truthism.

I’ll probably just join @Sunset Sea Islands and @Oyus in humanitarian aid work and Gospel spreading.

Kill them. For the Lord knows those that are His own.

Well if I continue the path I'm considering for the Limonaian religion then that group alone probably wouldn't be something Tagmatium or Salvia would support.

What path?

Anyway, as it is, there seems to be little angle for me to get involved, other than some frowny faces at some of the factions involved.

Especially the perfidious @Fulgistanis.
