Tragedy in Tagmatium


Tagmatium Rules

Recommended Posts

Newsreport from the Offical Tagmatium Media Group

Whilst on a state visit to the second city of Petrium, the Holy Emperor-Elect Theodosius was assassinated.

Travelling in the Holy Imperial motorcade past the Petrium General Library, gun-fire was heard and seen to come from an upper window, which struck the Emperor in the head, killing him instantly. Also injured was the Governor of Petrium, Marcus Rogers.

The High Chancellor, Commodus James, has taken over running of the country. The date Imperial election will be announced soon.

Elsewhere, in the capital of Tagmatium, the infamous right-wing dictator, General Konig, escaped from his high-security prison as a result of the Holy Imperial Guard units being re-deployed to aid the Republic of Burgundy-Brabant. This man is the most dangerous and must be apprehended immediately.

As a fellow MATA member the S.S.S.S. offers full support and willingness to help in any way possible. We are sorry for your nations loss and all flags at our MATA offices will be lowered half staff to mourn the loss. General Konig is being sought by the S.S.S.S. government for questioning and for a return to prison. Please, friends, let us know what we can do to assist.

Following the murder of the Emperor and escape of Konig, both of which are thought to be acts of a previously undectected right-wing element within the Tagmatium military. This group apparently wishes to re-establish the dictatorial regime which terrorised the Holy Empire 10 years previously. As yet, no army units have displayed any outward signs of rebellion, and no reports have arrived in the capital. This right-wing group is thought to be located in the north of the country, and a loyal armoured division, led by a General Wulfstan, is heading norht to bolster the loyalist presence and deter any actions the don't put forward the aims of the Holy Empire as a whole.

As yet, no outside assisstance is needed, but would be gladly recieved if the situation worsens.

The right-wing group embedded in the Tagmatine army has struck. Now calling themselves the "Conservative League of Tagmatium", they are claiming to be attempting to rid the Holy Empire from the corruption of Socialism, and to make the Holy Empire a great power to the awe of all in Europa. They have crowned the still-missing Konig as Holy Emperor, dispensing with the old method of electing the Emperor through a general election. They have claimed that there is support for them throughout Tagmatium, but so far the rebellion's strength seems to be several brigades of veteran People's Guard from the northern garrison.

The armoured division sent north to deal with any potential insurrection is yet to encounter any resistance, but has reported sporadic gunfire from further north.

RE: Uprising

Dear friends,

This sounds very similar to our own civil war, where Imperials tried to re-establish a "royal" dictatorship which was overthrown a long time ago.

We'll send you a list of high-ranking Imperials who have not been caught yet. If you find them, be careful - you're dealing with an experienced enemy!

If there is a connection, I fear, that there may be a Europan network of anti-government terrorists who are trying to alter the structure of our region by force. We have to find out why they're doing this and what their ultimate goal is.

Best wishes,
Hartman

Re: Uprising

We would be very grateful if you sent us a list of those you Imperials suspect of aiding or being part of the Conservative League of Tagmatium (CLT). We would also be grateful if you sent some advisors to help us with any potential mass uprising in the countryside and cities. At the moment the north appears to have quietened down since the arrival of the loyalist forces, but it is feared that this isn't because the rebels learnt the error of their ways, rather than the army units concerned, which are veterans in guerilla warfare because of their operations against smugglers in the northern mountains, may have dispersed to fight in their preferred style against the Holy Imperial forces.

This means that the Government has issued a warning to all foreign citizens in Tagmatium that they may be a potential target, as they are viewed by the CLT as corrupting the Tagmatine way of life. Extra security forces have been sent to guard foreign embassies and companies, but as the loyalty of these units can't be promised, we recommend the nations owning those embassies and companies send their own forces to bolster protection.

Being a great ally and member of the TEP with Tagmatium, we offer the services of our Praetorian Commandos to track down this fugitive and restore stability to your nation.

We will also send in our special secret-ops division, HuntingFalcon, to investigate all happenings and "deal" with those who wish to harm our great allies. May evil crumble before our steel! We are here for anything that you need from us. Emperor Theosidious I will attend any burial ceremonies for his late dear friend.

Subject: Security

Due to the risk of civil conflict in your state, the Ekainak Communist Party has determined that they will send elements of an army battalion to protect our citizens as well as our embassy. Departing aboard a transport ship, guarded by 2 destroyers, they will be deployed mostly on the ship or on embassy grounds. Ekainak will not take an active part in any future conflict in Tagmatium. A declaration has been sent to all Ekainak citizens in that country to return to Ekainak.

Re: Uprising and Emperor Theodosius' Funeral

The Holy Empire would like to thank all those nations that have expressed their sorrow over the loss of the Emperor Theodosius. Theodosius led the People of Tagmatium to freedom from the tyranny of the right-wing dictatorship 10 years ago. This right-wing threat has reared its ugly head again, and in its first act murdered the very man who destroyed it. The funeral will be held on the first of February, and all leaders of Europa are invited. Due to the threat of violence, the main ceremony won't be held in the Holy Empire. Any volunteers for a venue?

The aid in the form of soldiers sent from the Holy Empire of Abyssio is most welcome, and these were welcomed with all due ceremony. All embassies have had their guard of Tagmatine military exchanged with that of the ultra-loyal Holy Imperial Guard in the hope of improved safety.

The unknown nature of the strengths of the CLT within the Tagmatine military has led to an atmosphere of unease throughout Tagmatium. People suspect their neighbours, friends and even family of right-wing sympathies.

Re: Uprising and Emperor Theodosius' Funeral

 

The Praetorian Commandos will be performing sweeps and background checks, plus assualts on rebel camps. HuntingFalcon will be performing classified missions not to be mentioned here and are only to be known to the Holy Emperor himself. Abyssio offers its lands as one giant funeral ceremony site, as we will close down everything just so that the Late Emperor Theodosius may be honored with complete and total respect. The procession can take place in Rex Abyssio and he can lie in state in the middle of the city in the Imperial Forum. Let us know what else we can do to help our friends.

All non essential personnel have been requested to leave Tagmatium. Our embassy guard has been augmented with a Company of Marines from the 7th Commando Assault Brigade. They were helicoptered in and the aircraft carrier Fearless, together with her guard ships, are stationed some 40 miles off the coast.

 

The President of TARPS has offered the use of the military base just off the coast of our great nation to hold the ceremony. It has a naval dock, an airfield capable of taking even the largest transport aircraft and is a secure site.

 

If Commodus James wishes to send a delegation to view the facilities he may. But be advised that certain areas of the facility will be out of bounds.

 

Yours in Friendship.

Re: Funeral

 

We thank both your nations for you kind offer of holding the funeral of the late Holy Emperor Theodosius due to looming threat of civil conflict in Tagmatium. You have both made it difficult for the people of Tagmatium as your kindness is over-whelming and we do not wish to insult either of you by declining one over the other. The facilities offered by both nations are more than adequete for the event.

 

Events in the Holy Empire have taken a turn for the worst. Several carbombs have detonated within the capital, causing casualties. In the centre of the country, the forces of the Conservative League have displayed their skills in guerilla warfare by ambusing the returning Armoured division from the north. They managed to destory several tanks before being forced to with draw from the superiour firepower of the armoured column.

We too have suffered the agony of an injured populace who are loyal to the true leaders of their country.

 

However, it sounds as though your loyal forces are holding their own against the guerrillas. We offer support through supply facilities and will place ships and aircraft at your disposal if you require them.

We hope you understand our reluctance to commit front line troops at this confused juncture.

RE: Conservative League of Tagmatium

 

Dear friend,

 

a list of the Imperials that are still free is on the way. I also dispatched one unit of the Tamurin intelligence service which task will be to assist you. I hope that the experience we acquired in our recent war will help to prevent a major uprising in your country.

 

The unit will arrive at noon today.

 

Regards and best wishes,

Hartman

"The situations within our Holy Empire has taken a turn for the worst today. Insurgents from the CLT have revealed the full extent of their treachery and have launched a full attack across the north of our country. The main assault, which includes several artillery pieces.

This attack, although not across a wide front, has overwhelmed the loyalist forces in the area. The garrison of the city of Petrium, which only a few days ago saw the death of our beloved Emperor, has fought a fighting retreat out of the city under heavy bombardment.

 

The capture of Petrium, which is situated at the narrowest point of the channel between Tagmatium and the eastern coast, has blocked any movement of shipping through the channel. The guns of the fortess of Petrium have already sunk several loyalist gunboats attempting to recapture the city."

We have dipspatched the 17th and 21st Legions to defend our embassy in Tagmatium (which is rather large) These being the most anti-senate of our legions. This being the case, there is no further need of any Imperial units in our nation, as loyal forces can handle it.

Re: Civil War

 

Since the fall of Petrium, early afternoon yesterday, what was once an uprising can now becalled a civil war. All across the north of the Holy Empire, loyalist troops have been forced into a fighting retreat, due to the widespread revolt of soldiers within the People's Guard. What was once thought to be a premature rebellion, easily crushed, has now revealed itself to be a planned operation, first to remove the head of the Holy Empire, then to sow confusion and distrust within it, then to strike at it. As a result, 30-40% of the country, mainly the north-east, lies within emeny hands.

 

The body of the late emperor Theodosius has been flown to Abyssio for his funeral, and in the off-chance that Tagmatica does fall, the body cannot be used as an obscene trophy for the forces of the Conservative League.

 

The arrival of the 17th and 21st leagions from the Republic of Burgundy-Brabant (OOC:I assume this are the of the size of the old Roman Legions?) has, even though these are not under the control of the Empire, brought a calmer atmoshere to the streets of Tagmatica, and allowed several loyalist battlions of the People's Guard to be moved northward.

 

The traitor leader, Konig, now proclaimed Emperor by the CLT, now has announced his presence in the city of Petrium, which is the new capital of the Conservative Empire of Tagmatium. He escaped after nearly being caught by the HuntingFalcon's glorious efforts.

RE: Multi-national defense force

 

My dear collegues,

 

again a fellow nation is under attack by rebels and terrorists. This is just the latest incident in a long line of incidents since the uprising of the Imperial League in Tamurin and I'm now convinced, that there is a united command behind all of this. This can't be a coincidence.

 

However, right now it is more important to deal with the Conservative League in Tagmatium. We have to make clear that the removal of a government by force won't be an option in Europa.

 

I call upon all nations willing to support the government of Tagmatium. Tamurin is still weakened by its own civil war and is not able to dispatch major forces to Tagmatium. Army and Luftwaffe are still below their strength before the war. But our Navy is still completely intact and we could offer coastline support and a blocade of CLT-harbors with submarines, frigates and destroyers.

 

If the major powers in Europa could form a multi-national defense force in Tagmatium that would stabilize the loyal sectors, we could end this war quickly.

 

Best wishes,

Hartman

President of the United Republic of Tamurin

Subject: Possible Assistance

 

We are willing to enter into a deal with you, similar to our actions in Tamurin.

 

We can provide you with a steady supply of munitions and war machines, but be aware that if we assist you, it may cause certain MATA members, namely the SSSS, to rethink providing any kind of support.

 

The decision is up to you.
