Cyber Attack Cripples Zaxari Power Grid

30/7/2022: 10:00 -BREAKING NEWS- Late last night the Zaxari power grid across nearly the entire province of Flaxzar was suddenly and unexpectedly shut down. During the 9 hour blackout which followed, at least 10 people have been reported dead or missing. Hospitals were especially hard hit with nearly all deaths originating from medical facilities in the cities of Pêcher and Beliere.


The Imperial Hospital in Beliere reported 5 preventable deaths in the ER over the course of the blackout

The local authorities have classified this failure as a cyber attack of foreign origin and have launched investigations into how the attack took place. The Emperor, during a press conference in Sandrica, stated that "this tragedy is, without a doubt, a malicious attack originating from outside the borders of our nation. While we cannot place the exact location where the attack originated, it appears to have come from an actor within Côte de Fourrure. Rest assured, this attack will not go unanswered and it will not be allowed to happen again. CDF will answer for this."

Despite the Emperor's claims that this attack was carried out by CDF, military analysts across Aurelia have concluded that it is highly unlikely that CDF was able to carry our such a sophisticated attack without foreign assistance due to their lack of cyber-warfare capabilities. This has led many to suspect Anglian involvement. These claims are supported by the recent shift in the Anglian stance towards southern Aurelia, with the governments of CDF and Anglia working to strengthen ties between Godstone and Port au Sud.

The Zaxari response has yet to be disclosed.

Imperial Ultimatum: Is it a Thunder Storm or Rain on the Aurelian Horizon?

30/7/2022: 13:00 -BREAKING NEWS- Maurice la Vaneu, minister of foreign affairs of the Empire of Greater Zaxar, has just released an official open letter to La Republique de Côte de Fourrure. The letter included official assertions that the cyber attack which recently rocked southern Zaxar was a "deliberate and unprovoked attack," "carried out by the Fourruran government in an attempt to destabilize the Empire."

The government asserts that CDF bears full responsibility for the attack despite evidence of assistance by another foreign actor and, as such, the government of Côte de Fourrure will be expected to make a formal apology for the attack as well as providing reparations to the families of the individuals who lost their lives due, directly or indirectly, from the attack. Vaneu further demanded several million marks (ω), equivalent to approximately $200,000,000 Adapton Solidus, in reparations to be paid directly to the imperial government in Sandrica to help repair damaged energy and cyber infrastructure.

These demands have been met with horror by peace activists who liken this letter to "an ultimatum which serves only as a pretext to war." However, the majority of Senate parties along with the Emperor himself have asserted that this is a necessary, while unfortunate, step in ensuring that the Zaxari people can "feel safe in their own homes and businesses."

Emperor William has also issued a warning to Field Marshal Caitlin Friseal, leader of CDF's ruling military junta, that CDF can expect "sweeping and crushing sanctions" from Zaxar and its allies if they should fail to comply with the Zaxari demands. According to a source from within the government who wishes to remain anonymous, classified letters have been sent out to the governments of key Zaxari allies, likely including nations such as Ateenia, Gotneska, Iverica, and Tagmatium, asking for their support in sanctioning CDF should they fail to meet Zaxari demands. Similarly, a formal unclassified request was sent to the headquarters of the Aurelian League requesting a vote to recognize Zaxari demands to CDF. It will be interesting to see if this will even make it to a vote in the AL Chamber as requests like this have not ever been issued to the organization.

Unconfirmed sources have also mentioned letters sent to the nearby nation of Gallambria. The Zaxari and Gallambrian government have had surprisingly little interaction with one another in modern history despite their close proximity. Scholars on the topic at the University of Green Falls told our sources that this is really due to just a lack of shared challenges or overlapping interests and assert that it is not due to bad blood between the nations. The contents of the letter are not known by the public but are assumed to be over the alleged Anglian involvement in the cyber attack as Gallambria controls the waves between Zaxar and Godstone.

The deadline for the Zaxari demands is that the formal apology and first round of payments must arrive by August 5, 2022 at 00:00.

5/8/2022: 10:00 -BREAKING NEWS- In an internationally broadcasted press briefing early this morning, Field Marshal and leader of Côte de Fourrure Caitlin Friseal read out the Zaxari demands to reporters before bursting out into laughter and balling up the document which she then threw towards the waste bin by the press room door. The shot missed terribly and yet the message was still very clear, CDF would not be paying the Imperial reparations. When asked about how worried she was about Zaxari and allied retaliation, Friseal assured that CDF had become a very "self reliant and self driven nation" and that it had always faced threats from "regional bullies and so-called native swine attempting to rob [Fourrures] of our rightful land and property and we have never taken it laying down. This shall be no different. We are ready and willing to defend our nation from any military or economic attack."

Friseal continued to assert a lack of Zaxari evidence throughout her briefing, a stance which the country has held since the first reports of the attack. She went on to call out to "allies of Côte de Fourrure in Europa and Aurelia and to believers in international law everywhere" for backing in any coming conflict "be it economic or, god forbid, military." Analysts have dubbed this a request for formal backing from the nations of Anglia and others within the OCA as well as other sympathetic nations in order to deter the Zaxari government from taking any serious action against the nation.


The Zaxari and foreign responses have yet to be disclosed.

Imperial Sanctions Announced on Côte de Fourrure: What's next and how can the situation be resolved?

5/8/2022: 13:00 -BREAKING NEWS- Emperor William I Zaxar went live from the Imperial Palace in Sandrica early this afternoon to address the Fourruren broadcast earlier this morning. William announced that sanctions which "would heavily punish those responsible for the attack" before making his speech.

The major targets of these sanctions were lithium (both crude and refined), crude cobalt, and pharmaceuticals. The only export listed which is expected to have any major impact of CDF is the pharmaceuticals industry which CDF relies upon as Zaxar is the only major exporter in the region. Notable exclusions from this list are food products including grain and cider which are very important to CDF due to its frigid climate which makes fish the only significant domestically produced food product. The Emperor avoided discussing these at all during his speech and military analysts have criticized this move as they say it is the only step that could possibly provide the pressure needed to "break CDF."

William made this speech while fully dressed in traditional ceremonial Wampanoag garb rather than his usual business suit. Some suggest that this symbolizes a prioritization of national safety over the previous economic focus of the Emperor. During his speech the Emperor called on the people of Zaxar and of the Wurld to stand united against this blatant state-terrorist attack on the civillian population of Zaxar. The Emperor then addressed his counterparts throughout the Aurelian League, calling for them to place similar sanctions on CDF as a show of Aurelian unity against threats. Commentators are predicting an overall positive but mixed response from the League.

Towards the end of his speech, William made a statement which almost certainly evoked a collective groan from pacifists around the glube as he proclaimed the military is now mobilizing across the CDF-Zaxar border and the reserve troops are being called up into service across the nation. The Ranger Corps have also been repositioned to replace army personnel along friendlier borders to free up further units to move south toward CDF.

Army high command assures that this move is only to deter further Fourruren attacks and to conduct "defensive combat drills." It remains to be seen if this promise will hold.

William concluded his speech with a message to the Fourruren government, stating that "all sanctions can still be lifted and friendly relations restored, all you have to do is admit responsibility for your actions, apologize for them, and give families and companies the reparations they deserve. For every week you wait, the value of these reparations shall increase by 5%, please do yourselves and your people a favor and cooperate sooner rather than later."

To: His Excellency, Maurice la Vaneu, Foreign Minister of the Autokrateia ton Megas Zaxareia, the Empire of Greater @Zaxar

From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomaion


Your Excellency,

The news of the cyber attack on your nation came as a shock to the people of Arome. If, as it it is increasingly appears to be, the actions of a foreign state, then your nation has every right to demand justice for this heinous act. Whilst the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion counsels caution and a full investigation of the matter before conclusions are jumped to, especially if the analysis that this involves not one but two foreign powers acting in concert against your nation. The reaction of the leadership of Côte de Fourrure – one full of smug bravado and discounting the damage that they have done to your nation and its people – suggests that they are indeed at least to blame for the cyber attack. Or, if not directly to blame due to it being a non-state actor within their borders – then dismissive of hurt that it has caused.

Therefore, I have been requested by His Aroman Majesty, Kommodos III, by the Grace of Christ the God, Holy Emperor of the Aroman People and Equal-to-the-Apostles, that the people of Zaxar, your government and your monarch have the full support of people and government of Arome. It is time that the machinations of Great Anglia are opposed not just in Europa but the rest of the glube and your nation's sanctions against this Aurelian minion of theirs does much to further that opposition.

This support is to be shown by the extension of the sanctions that my nation placed against Great Anglia last year to Côte de Fourrure. Should this fail to dissuade them from any more actions that go against your nation, Zaxari or Aroman interests in Aurelia, then the sanctions will be increased. Further to that, Aromania would be willing to share intelligence with your nation, if it would be useful to strengthening your nation's ability to challenge both your neighbour and the meddling of Great Anglia in the coming months.

May God see to it that the Zaxari people and Great Zaxar itself come through this crisis stronger than ever.

From: Maurice la Vaneu, Foreign Minister of the Empire of Greater Zaxar


I apologize for the time which it took to draft a response to your most welcome letter and hope that you may understand the circumstances which so caused the delay,


I would first like to offer our most heartfelt thanks for your commitment to Wurld peace and, in turn, to the plight of the Zaxari peoples known to the Wurld as Côte de Fourrure. Your nation's stance as an ally of the Zaxari people is noticed and will not soon be forgotten. Since the writing of your letter the situation has unfortunately escalated further, as I am sure you are quite aware so I'll spare you the details. This has led to us being forced to take more drastic action than we would normally ever consider and which will be be outlined below.

The Imperial Zaxari Fleet is moving into key strategic locations in the Wampanoag Sea and in the waters around the great Zaxari island of Wampano. The fleet has been tasked with the inspecture of all cargo ships bound for Côte de Fourrure who fly under the flags of any nation who has failed to impose the deserved sanctions on the state. Our courts have determined this a fully legal and responsible action in light of recent rumors of arms shipments passing through our own cherished sea lanes bound for the warmongering state. Should any weapons of war be found on these vessels, they will be seized by the Empire and detained in Zaxar for as long as deemed necessary in the protection of peace.

While these actions may seem an affront to trade in the region and across the glube, they are certainly in the best interest of every nation effected as a war in the region would lead to far greater economic damage than an extra stop in a Zaxari port for inspection. Your nation will obviously be excluded from these checks and allowed total freedom to pass unharmed into Fourruren ports due to your nation's commitment to avoid any arms deals with the country and due to your nation's valued status as a strategic and economic partner.

Further, we would be most grateful for the intelligence assistance offered by your great nation in the hopes of dissuading further Fourruren aggression as well as in finding those who assisted them in their attacks on our state because, while we have made no official accusations, we are well aware of imperialist interference on our continent.


May your god bring you peace and fate bring you luck,




May peace be in your hearts,

From: Maurice la Vaneu, Foreign Minister of the Empire of Greater Zaxar


I write to you today as a friend and on behalf his imperial majesty Emperor William I Zaxar and through him the Empire of Greater Zaxar and its people,


I would like to first offer our great appreciation for your immediate and steadfast actions in support of our cause in this time of crisis. It is far from an easy or thoughtless decision when a leader chooses to take action on the behalf of a nation and a people who are not his own.

While your war funds are very much appreciated, we are thankfully not yet at war. While the permanence of this status will surely be tested in the coming days, we will refrain from escalating this conflict further as far as we are able.

I would like to inform you, however, as your nation is clearly one which may be trusted to stand at our side on the Wurld stage if not the battlefield itself, of our intentions in regards to the unfortunate but inevitable repercussions that the Fourruren government must face in light of their blatant disregard of our sovereignty. As I write this, the Imperial Zaxari Fleet is moving into key strategic locations in the Wampanoag Sea and in the waters around the great Zaxari island of Wampano. The fleet has been tasked with the inspecture of all cargo ships bound for Côte de Fourrure who fly under the flags of any nation who has failed to impose the deserved sanctions on the state.

Should any weapons of war be found on these vessels, they will be seized by the Empire and detained in Zaxar for as long as deemed necessary in the protection of peace.


Let it never be forgotten that the Zaxars and Ionians stand together,

San Foca
Presidential Palace

President John Colucci was having lunch with his family when General Marco Bettini suddenly arrived running.

"Mr. President. We have an emergency. You have to follow me in the War Room"

"Arrival. Family. See you soon"

John Colucci got up from his chair and followed the general quickly. After a brisk walk, they came to a door. You could already hear the sound of the running footsteps and when after the president entered the code and opened the door with a special key, they went down the stairs quickly and after a few minutes they were inside the underground floor of the presidential palace where you could see soldiers and civil servants running quickly. The president and the general ran to the room and entered the War Room, where there were all the ministers together with the generals of the various branches of the army. The first who spoke was the Chief of Staff of the Ionian Air Force, Luca Goretti.

"Mr. President. War is breaking out between Zaxar and Côte de Fourrure. This morning there was a hacker attack that hit the infrastructure of our neighbor friend Zaxar again. According to the experts of our Cyber Command, we have identified that this Hacker attack started from the nation Côte de Fourrure. At 12:00, two zaxari air force jets violated the airspace of Côte de Fourrure. President, there is a war here."

The president was reading the top-secret documentation while listening to the various ministers and generals talking while in his mind, he was formulating possible strategies that Ionio could adopt and obtain some form of economic profit but also prestige. After all, John Colucci is a Tycoon who has been lent to politics and enjoys a reputation for being a ruthless businessman, at least when he works.

After that he heard the various opinions of ministers and generals were some called for a diplomatic solution while many ministers and generals called for a descent into the field to help Zaxar's friends. At the end, he started talking.

"Ladies and gentlemen. I think that the path of diplomacy has already been tackled, and I think that weapons are the only solution. Since the solution is explosive, we must think about the protection of our citizens who are in Côte de Fourrure. Franciesco since you are the foreign minister, I order you to execute the Exit Protocol. Immediately alert all citizens of Ionio living in Côte de Fourrure and our embassy. They must activate the protocols of destruction of sensitive material. The diplomatic corps must be the last to be evacuated after all civilian citizens have fled this nation. "

"I'm going to activate the Exit protocol immediately"

The Minister of Foreign Affairs ran away from the war room while the president addressed Mario Tremonti, Minister of Economy

"Mario, I want the Ministry of Economy to activate the worst sanctions against Côte de Fourrure. And have the Guardia di Finanzia activated to seize any assets of all the politicians and generals of Côte de Fourrure who are present in Ionio. Their proceeds will be deposited towards a fund for reconstruction"

"Of course, President"

“As for you, Ignazio La Russa. Since you are the Minister of Defense, I want to authorize arms exports to Zaxar. While I want the army in a state of maximum alert. War could involve us, and we must respond to any threat.”

The defense minister and generals nodded and ran away from the war room, while the President saw the screens of the news that were reporting on the crisis that was unfolding. In the room, there was a landline phone that I use to call his secretary and urgently schedule a press conference.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Sylvain Tourier straightened his tie and mechanically repeated the banal phrases that were said on a first day. First day as an employee of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He quickly adjusted his hairstyle and the elevator doors opened. Much to his disappointment no one to greet him. The building seemed empty. Seemed, Sylvain approached a room where an indistinct hubbub was heard. A crowd of men and women seemed fed by a large screen that sat enthroned in the room. Sylvain approached a man at the back of the crowd, moustachioed and sweating on this summer day.

"Excuse me do you know what's going on?"

The man looked Sylvain up and down and replied nonchalantly.

"Severe diplomatic incident between Zaxar and Cote de Fourrure. It had to blow up one of these days anyway…"

Sylvain looks at the screen and again at the crowd. A man in a red tie approaches him, coffee in hand. 

"Can I help you? The visitors' entrance is downstairs if ever. Here, it's private."

"Uh yes of course. I'm Sylvain Tourier, I was hired as an employee here and…" 

The man with the tie stared at him and asked Sylvain to follow him. They walked quickly through a maze of offices before the man stopped in front of one.

“Here is your office. We're going to work hard soon, have you seen the news?”

"Yes, of course. What does the Ministry do?"

"We'll wait for the Minister. But I think we'll support Zaxar. Most of our neighbors are already doing it. Okay, get settled, see you in about twenty minutes, conference room."

The man left in a hurry, letting Sylvain alone and the hubbub of the TV and the distant crowd.

The Brothers War
Chapter 5: All Quiet on the Southern Front


-- Nov 20: 1500 hours -- We will begin with a brief apology to all of our readers who have been following the war with so much at stake. As the situation has developed, the Zaxari and Fourruren governments have both cracked down on data leaks and attempted to hinder the spread of misinformation on the conflict, leading to a large media dark zone on the front. While we will continue to do our best within the laws of our nation and without endangering our reporters beyond what is reasonable, our reports will likely continue to be inconsistent and infrequent for the time being.


  1. An Anglian carrier group under the command of Admiral Mosi lands on, and seizes the island of Massatugk after fierce resistance by the Zaxari naval garrison. The Anglians suffered an estimated loss of 653 military personnel, 2 landing craft, and severe damage to an amphibious assault craft which unverified reports have declared sunk days later in the captured Zaxari harbor. Zaxari losses included the entirety of the garrison with 255 killed, including garrison commander Captain Lesattii, and 47 wounded or captured. All those killed in the battle were post-humorously awarded the Southern Star by the Emperor.
  2. General Mishquèsa launched an armored push against a determined Fourruren defense. His objective is to reach the outskirts of Fort de Phoque, the key Fourruren stronghold in the east and the most commercially important city in the country. There he will meet up and merge with forces from the earlier Zaxari amphibious landings. Fighting now rages on three sides of the city as Anglian General Aloïs puts up a desperate defense as the city fears inevitable encirclement.
  3. Colonel Kipchekk and General Péqua continued their infantry assault in the north, capturing much of the underpopulated land of northern Côte de Fourrure. Fourruren commander Mathéo continues his guerrilla campaign in the northern woods along the Powhaten border. International analysts have speculated on the ongoing talks between Zaxar and Powhaten. Should the native state decide to join their longtime allies in Zaxar, much of the Fourruren northern army would face encirclement. This could lead to a swift and detrimental collapse of the Fourruren northern front.
  4. Fourren General Zacharie has been relocated north with his forces to link up with CDF leader Friseal after his victory of the Zaxari landing in the south in preparation for the inevitable assault down the Fourruren River.
  5. In the south, Zaxari forces captured a key Fourruren town and have dug into the surrounding countryside. It seems the landing has stabilized and is now looking to link up with the main Zaxari front in the north.

In other news, control of the sea remains disputed with most of the Adlantic in OCA control while Zaxar has maintained control of the Wampanoag Sea. The development of this naval front is expected to define the projected later stages of this war and Emperor William continues to stress the importance of our sailors, so often overlooked, in the war effort.

The Brothers War
Chapter 6: Marksman 8329


-- Jan 1: 0000 hours -- Marksman 8329 lay silently in his grass nest of camouflage. The breeze running through the tall summer grass was the only noise in this forest clearing. He was surely not the only Zaxari sniper in this area, but if there were others 10 feet away he would not know. General Kipchekk had been anticipating a fourruren counterattack here any day now. Marksman 8329 "grenouille" had been laying in this spot of 34 hours now; perched overlooking the clearing where enemy forces must surely cross in hopes of cutting Zaxari northern supply lines.

The mission of the Zaxari snipers was not to prevent these attacks, for that would require much more firepower. Rather their mission was to be Zaxar's eyes in the field. The Fourruren soldiers had the advantage out here in this sense. On their home turf they knew the locals and the subtler signs of the forests. But their Anglian-made reconnaissance drones, that normally gave them an edge over the Zaxari on the land, were far less effective and so, like the Zaxari, they had resorted to foot patrols.

That was the target of the marksmen. No less than three Fourruren patrols had disappeared in this particular clearing. As soon as another patrol would step out from the woods, they would be met by a hail of targeted fire, swiftly dispatching the two to three man patrols. This tactic was a standard one for the Zaxari Rangers. It had a long history dating back to the times of the Wampanoag Empire when camouflaged archers would wait around an enemy encampment over night and greet their enemies with a hail of targeted fire, as opposed to the Argo-Europic blanket fire more suited to large armies, quickly and quietly eliminating threats.

But the anticipated counterattack would not come. At least not where it was expected. For young general Mathéo, a close friend of field marshal commander Friseal and likely one of the brightest generals ever produced by the south Aurelian nation, had realized the hopelessness of his northern defense. For while the defense was strong and could stall the Zaxari northern advance, the true offensive lay to the south. The south where Friseal was being pushed back deep into her own territory and Aloïs was about to be encircled with his southern army of 15,000 men. Côte de Fourrure could not hold out much longer and Mathéo knew this. With the OCA now turning their attention to their fronts closer to home, the only hope he had of turning the tide of the war now was shocking Zaxar into peace talks.

So now, with 7,000 of his finest veterans of the northern front, Mathéo launched an invasion, cutting through the weak and underdeveloped native nation of Powheten, into the fertile heartlands of Zaxar's Sarthus River Basin. Faced only by the small Zaxari Ranger Corps garrison, Mathéo tore into western Zaxar, looting and pillaging the sparse farming villages, before evacuating the residents and setting fire to all that remained.

A letter from a Zaxari lieutenant fighting by the Fourrune city of Fort de Phoque to his fiance in Sandrica, April 1, 2023.


I hope this letter finds you and our family in good health and spirits. As for myself, I am doing my best to stay strong and focused, but I must admit that being away from you and our home in Sandrica is proving to be quite a challenge. The enemy fights fiercely for their land.

I am currently stationed at [REDACTED] as a [REDACTED] for the Tunnúppa Division. It is certainly not an entertaining role but we need soldiers like me if we ever hope to end this war. I can't believe its only been eight months now, it feels like we've been cooking these blancs for longer honestly.

The Fourrurens are a formidable enemy, and the shifting seasons only makes their tactics more challenging to predict. We are doing everything we can to keep our vehicles from sticking in the mud and keep ourselves healthy while we fight for our country and our loved ones. I can finally appreciate our lack of mechanized heavy armor when all we have out here are light vehicles we can drive strait through the mud. I believe command moved all of our heavy armor down to the major urban combat zones which is probably for the best anyway.

I often think about the moments we shared together, the laughter, the joy, the love we have for each other. These memories keep me going, and they give me the strength to carry on. I miss you and our city so much, and I long for the day when we can be together again. You have true realizations when you lie under enemy gunfire, you see your life differently and you realize what is truly valuable in this life. I'm going to marry you when I get home. If you'll still have me.

I am proud to serve our country of Sandrica, and I am grateful for the opportunity to do so. But at the same time, I am keenly aware of the dangers that lie ahead. We are all aware of the risks that come with serving, but I know that I am doing what I must do to keep my family and our country safe.

Please know that I love you more than anything in this wurld. I will continue to write to you and keep you updated on my progress. I promise to do everything in my power to end this war and return home to you as soon as possible.

Until then, please take care of yourself and look out for my parents and sister. I miss you more than words can express, and I am counting down the days until we can be together again.


Aspinet LeNassielles

The war continues to drag on and is now entering a new phase. As the seasons in the southern hemisphere shift from a cool summer into a wet fall, dirt turns to mud which limits the use of heavy machinery until the inevitable freezing and shallow snow of the South Aurelian winter.


UPDATES: 4/2/23

  • Mathéo continues his scorched Eurth march into southwestern Zaxar
  • The Powhaten nation has officially announced a full strategic alliance with the Empire of Greater Zaxar and has comitted its forces to cut Mathéo's supply lines in the vast northern woodlands
  • A joint Zaxari offensive finally manages to secure the entire east side of the country, only being held off on the outskirts of the capital, Port au Sud.
  • OCA naval forces largely divert from the Wampanoag Sea to reenforce their assets in more crucial regions, leaving the vastly inferior Fourruren Navy with only a single outdated carrier task force stationed on the captured Zaxari naval base at Massatugk.
  • Rumors of secret alliances forming between the native states have begun to circulate. If true, this could either lead to a significant escalation of the current situation if they stand divided, or the illusive swift end to the war that both sides had hoped for.
