A DAY OF HAPPINESS IN THE EMPIRE

Our most benevolent Emperor, Jacob Menelassar III., inaugurated the monument of his father, the great George Menelassar I. who died exactly 15 years ago. Our emperor said:

"There has never been a greater man on Earth. He formed the most advanced Empire ever seen on this planet. Our progress is unstoppable and the day when Tamurin will dominate Europa and the world will come. This century will be remembered as the "Century of Tamurin". Knowledge, Technology and the Spirit of Progress and Power are localized and concentrated most in our great nation.

We have to stand united against all threats from within and without. Other Empires, like the old corrupt Byzantinum Empire, are threatening us in a desperate attempt to stop our progress. Byzantinum-led political groups inside our great nation are trying to weaken and divide our country. We cannot let this happen! We have to stand united! Remember the spirit of our people when this great Empire was founded. Honour the name of my father and all your fathers in continueing, what they started."

The speech of the Emperor was followed by cheers, applause and rejoicing.

FLEET MANEUVER

In the biggest fleet manoeuvre since the founding of our great Empire, the imperial fleet has once again proven that it is the most powerful and advanced Navy in the world.

"Our navy would crush any enemy!" said Admiral von Tarnoff. "Our guns are very precise and our shells will penetrate any armour! Nothing can defeat this great navy."

"One day this great Navy will be seen at all shores of this world. And when this day comes, I will be among a very special shore, looking at the burning ships of a very specific navy..."

REPUBLICAN TERRORISTS SENTENCED TO DEATH

The five leaders of the Republican Terrorist Cell "Republican Progress Now", who were captured two days ago trying to place a bomb near the Imperial Palace, have been sentenced to death by shooting. The execution will take place in two days.

The Republican Party, always sympathizing with terrorists, protested, but was overruled by the Upper House.

Joseph Compronymus, Tagmatine ambassador to Tamurin looked at the Royal Imperial Herald with deepening horror. He had just sat down to his breakfast in the small embassy in Alaghon when the paper had arrived. Being the smallest embassy in Tamurin, owned by a nation that was usually too busy bickering to take much interest in international affairs, it was nearly always quiet. Recently, with the Holy Imperial court swinging to the Marxists, he had been made to aid the rebels, sending them money and what little information came to his ears. With the leaders of rebellion captured and most likely tortured for information, Compronymus knew that the Government of Tamurin must know of his actions. This, diplomat or not, will probably end in the firing squad. Time to go.

A while later, after Compronymus had burnt the relevant documents and packed up, there was a knock at the door. His heart was in his mouth as he crept downstairs and opened the door.

"Yes?" Joseph said to the men, dressed in dark clothes.

"Ambassador Compronymus? Come with us."

It wasn't for several days that anyone noticed his disappearance, as the embassy was off the beaten track. The Holy Empire didn't know until the end of the week. The Court was shocked, and then resolved to do more for the rebels.

After taking all the information in and waiting for a lull in activity, as was the normal Vanarambaion way of doing things, Emperor Wilson made a speech before the Senate that showed a complex public opinion on the region. The Emperor pledged "neutrality in word and mind and deed," and warned against either side trying to bring the nation in on either side. He went on to condemn the sabre-rattling by the Byzantines and the Tamurins. Later, in a semi-obvious ploy to gain the approval of the Senate, he condemned the deaths of the Republican leaders. He refused to answer questions afterwards about his true position on the matter of the executions. He also pledged that he would aid Tagmatium in finding its wayward ambassador, and not to rush into anything before all the details were on the table. In other news, the Vanarambaion ambassador to Tamurin has been withdrawn, though the embassy remains open.

The Conservatives in the Senate, barely a minority, refused to stand for the Emperor's entrance into the Senate, and a few left the room in the course of the speech. The Emperor has been campaigning against them actively since the last election, when they picked up several key seats.

Jacob Menelassar III.: "What about the terrorists?"

Chief of the Secret Police, von Bodewitz: "They're still not talking. They're very into their cause... BUT, I have something good. We got a hint from inside the rebels, that the Tagmatium ambassador helped them. We took him last night and questioned him. He was more...talkative..." >>smiling demonlike<<

Jacob: "Good, but not too impressive. You've been better. Tagmatium and Vanarambaion are acting weird. They smell the weakness in our country. We must crush these rebels like insects. Got that?"

von Bodewitz: "Yes, Excellency. What are your orders then?"

Jacob: "Torture the rebels. There's stuff from the dark ages in that special prison. Use it. Our ancestors were good in inventing stuff that hurts."

von Bodewitz: "Yes, Excellency. And the ambassador?"

Jacob: (without thinking) "Kill him, but it shall look like a terrorist attack. OK? Can you do this?"

von Bodewitz: "Yes, Sir."

Dear friends,

I'm sorry to tell you that your good and respected ambassador Joseph Compronymus has been killed in a terrorist attack by anarchists. I'm very sorry to tell you this. Joseph Compronymus was a very good man and I think that he'd have contributed very much to improve the relations between our two peoples.

Emperor of the Great Empire of Tamurin

Re: Condolences

We were shocked to hear of the death at the hands of the rebels our ambassador, and we are honoured at the condolences of the great Empire of Tamurin. We hope the rebels are swiftly crushed by your glorious Imperial forces.


"Damnit! They found him, didn't they!" Strategos Carus bellowed. He was the man who was chief puppet-master of the Holy Emperor, Basil II.

"They put it down to rebel action, my lord." Patriarch Gordian answered.

"Of course they would. They would hardly admit we were sponsoring rebels and giving them information, least of all killing a diplomat." Carus sighed. "We need to find a replacement for him soon."

"Better yet, my lord, if the rebels show themselves, we could properly aid them."

"If it goes wrong, priest, the right-wingers will be all over us."

Greetings exalted one, news of your execution of rebels has just reached us, and we congratulate you.

With soldierly decision and exemplary courage, Tamurin must crush the traitors and murderers. That is why Niederoestereich wishes to form a greater bond with the Imperialistic government. Please, allow us to send a delegation of diplomats to Alaghon to discuss embassy establishment.

King Phil II sends best wishes to his cousin Emporer Jacob Menelassar III, I am pleased you are not as weak as some of the so-called royal family of Europa are becoming in these modern times. The modern world calls for more decisive leaders, Leaders who Lead, as opposed to letting the people set themselves up as rulers. If this trend continues what will happen to the world? It will collapse as the people who have had no training for it kill their countries, kill the world. We were born to rule, we have been trained from birth to rule, do you not think this makes us the best qualified?

These ''Republican'' terrorists must be dealt with all over Europa, before long they will be suggesting that women have the intellect to work for a days wage next, and what will the world come to then! These upstarts must be dealt with as soon as possible, before they get the chance to brainwash the population with their 'power to the people' rubbish. Nip them in the Bud I say, and I congratulate Menelassar III on his fine catch.

Greetings, exalted one.

We are happy to meet a familiar soul in Europa these times. Anarchic scum, calling itself "Republicans" and "Democrats", is coming out of the dark where it should get back sooner than later.

We are happy to welcome you to our country as soon as you wish.

RE: Thank you, my cousin, for your support

Greetings, my good cousin.

I'm very glad to have your support in these rough times. Emperor and Kings everywhere are backing down and giving rights to these people. I can't do that. I forced my brother out of the palace when he did so...

Let us make a pact: Not one of us will back down to these "progressive politicians". We will keep our empires clean from this disease, until the times get better and our way of doing things will be appreciated.

I'd love to see you again. I hope, both our schedules will allow that sometime soon. I miss Philengrad and its beautiful countryside...

Best wishes to you,
Jacob

RE: New things

Dear friends,

I'm sorry to hear that our friend and ally Joseph Compronymus was killed. As we know it, he was captured and tortured by the Secret Police, before he was killed.

This set-back cannot stop us. We heard, that a delegation of Niederoesterreich will come into the country. We are preparing something for this "event". It'd be wise for your people to have a good explanation, why they can't be there.

Best wishes,
James

DEATH TO TRAITORS

Today, the five leaders of the terrorist cell "Republican Progress Now" were executed.

The Imperial Party and the Upper House received the message with joy, while the so-called Republican "democrats" called it a "bad day for Tamurin and for the peace inside our country".

After a very anarchic statement, the Upper House advised the Lower House, that the Republicans should be watched more carefully and maybe should be forbidden, because "terrorists seem to have growing support within their ranks".

The afternoon sun shone through the curtains to the room of the leader of Imperial Intelligence. Askanios, the II leader was staring out of the window. Opposite the building across the street people were enjoying the gentle weather by sunbathing (modestly of course) or taking a stroll in the Park of Theodosius. Here and there were groups of people discussing with each other. The subject in almost every conversation would be easy to predict: the Grand Exhibition of the Arts. The exhibition had just started in Konstantinopoli with dozens of new plays in opera and theatre, many concerts and lots of other visual and audio art in every part of the city.

All this was however far away from Askanios's thoughts. As someone knocked to the door of his office he sapped himself out of the trancelike state he had been while staring out of the window.

"Come in." He said loudly to the knocker. The door opened and four other men stepped inside. Askanios greeted them all by shaking their hands and asked them to sit.

As all the men had found their seats one of them put several newspaper clips and other documents in front of the II leader who started to shuffle through them.

"Our "friends" in Tamurin have been busy, sire. They even caught Tagmatine ambassador after foiling our plans to get rid of their Emperor."

"And our agent? Did he get caught?"

"Nay, sire. He was able to escape from the ambush where the rebels aiding him got caught. Unfortunately, he later ran to soldier patrol and was shot to death. Tamurinians must have mistaken him as one of the rebels or he'd be tortured for information just now instead of being dead."

"Hmmh. Poor guy. Anyway, contact Tagmatine ambassador in Konstantinopoli and ask if he could meet with me soon.

"Immediately, Sire."

"Good. Do not disturb me with anything before tomorrow. I promised to go to see Aeneid with my wife tonight and she'll kill me if I leave there."


At the opposite side of the city in the Imperial Navy HQ one man did not approve Tamurinian actions.

"To hell with those Tamurinians!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First, they mock us with their naval display and then they dare to write such crap in the newspaper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" The Grand Admiral Johannes Komnenus raged while walking across the room to the other black-uniformed men who were playing card around the only table in the little room.

"Calm down Komnenus, just take a seat and play." The other men replied in a chorus as Komnenus was well-known for his outbursts. The Grand Admiral sat in the remaining free seat and took the cards that were dealt to him. He did not, however, calm down.

"We should at least do something to show those...."

"It's already taken care of. We will prepare a Grand naval parade. Emperor himself will be watching and we intend to greet him with almost all of our ships not in colonial seas." the admiral left to Komnenus said.

"Ahh, okay. That should show them that our navy is not a pushover!!"

The high navy officers then continued playing with a somewhat relaxed atmosphere.


(OOC: Sorry about the rough language. I am not trying to offend you personally Tam.)

Stategos Carus paced the small office, dictating a message to the secretary sitting at the desk.

"To my great friend and ally, Jacob Menelassar III, glorious Emperor of Tamurin. I am very much saddened that to tell you that our new representative in your noble country will not be able to attend any forthcoming events for a while," he paused to light a cigar and continued. "As the previous occupant of the Embassy left so hurriedly, there is a lot of paperwork and the like to clear up before he can continue with his normal duties. Got all that? No, don't put that in, I was saying it to you. Yours through these troubling times, Strategos Carus of Tagmatium, from the mouth of Holy Emperor Basil II."

There was a knock at the door, and one Carus's aides came in.

"My lord, the arms shipment is ready." The man told Carus.

"The Enfield .303s? Good. Send them the usual way, and make sure they are not intercepted. We, and the Republicans, can't afford it. This would give those damned Imperialists an excuse to have my head."

BREAKING NEWS

The anarchic Republican terrorists have assaulted the meeting between our beloved Emperor Jacob Menelassar III. and the diplomatic delegation of Niederoesterreich!

When both groups met at the harbour in Arrabar, several men standing in the crowd, at least five, drew revolvers and opened fire upon the officials. At least three other men on roofs around the crowd opened fire with rifles.

The Emperor is unharmed and was able to escape. His personal guard shot three of the anarchists and overpowered two.

But three Lords were killed, seven were wounded. The delegation of Niederoesterreich lost at least two men. Their identity is unknown to us.

This proves clearly, that these "Republicans" are just spreading terror and death. We have to stand up and fight them now! Let's unite against this disease from within!

Our Emperor, minutes after the failed assault: "I will crush this scum!"


REPUBLICAN VOICE

-- An illegal newspaper, appearing irregularly at different locations in all major cities --

The Republican Forces have shown what they're capable of! Today we killed three Lords, three of the cruellest and most brutal men in Tamurin. Each of them is suppressing his people with almost no civil rights, but many taxes and brutal labour laws. They deserved to die, they didn't care a damn about their people!

This time we missed Jacob Menelassar III., but next time he won't be so lucky.

We also stopped the "talks" between the two Empires of Niederoesterreich and Tamurin. We have to unite all Republican forces and end the reign of the Imperialists in our nation and our region.

Republic! Freedom!

NIEDEROESTEREICH TELEGRAPH

DEATH IN TAMURIN

Sketchy reports are filtering through morse code wireless that at least two diplomats have lost their lives on a peaceful mission.

Their agenda for today was to meet the Emperor of Tamurin at Arrabar Harbour then inland for talks, information at hand claims that it may be the work of the Republican scum. Possible coming from the crowd to kill the Tamurin leader.

Reports are still arriving and we may not know the full story for days.

(OOC: I was waiting for an inflammatory statement from one of the powers. I think I just got it..)

William Wilson, Emperor of Vanarambaion gave a last bit of hope for peace in the region when he sent out an invitation to all interested parties to hold peace talks in Thule, our capital. Once interested parties have been put together, we will commence talks on the subject of peace and rights in Tamurin. He was very confident, as usual, that the nations of Europa would answer his call quickly: "God is on our side -- how can we go wrong?"

In other news, with election time nearing, the Emperor has commenced a whistle-stop campaign throughout Vanarambaion to stop efforts by Republicans within Vanarambaion from gaining seats in the Vanaramabaion Parliament, a move that could give them majorities in both houses. "Republicanism is akin to Satanism...we cannot morally sit here while those heretics take over the Senate!"

THE PHILIAN JENERAL JOURNAL

King Phil II has launched a scathing attack on the Emporer of Vanarambaion, in a statement given today he said that Wilson was a traitor to the royal cause for even thinking about holding talks with the Republican Scum. (OOC: hehehe, now I feel like I'm some sort of Dark Jedi.) These people cannot be stopped by words, they will continue to kill and maim until they have destroyed the very basis of our Monarchistic society. Wilson should be ashamed of himself for such talks.

King Phil II himself has embarked on talks with his cousin Emperor Jacob Menelassar III about launching a regionwide ''war on republic terror'', to root out the people who seek to destroy our way of life and are capable of committing such heinous acts as the assassination of several Tamurin and Niederoestereich officials last week.

Talks will be held to decide what to do about rumoured republican terrorist cells setting up recruitment and training camps in unclaimed territory in the central peninsula, and about the several republican terrorists currently held in Philian prisons after being arrested last week following a tip-off from one of our spies.

May Phil watch over you all, signing off…

IMPERIAL TRIBUNE

Today the might of the Byzantine Navy was revealed to all as the whole home fleet sailed past the harbour of Konstantinopoli. The long line of massive ships with determined and skilful crews proves to anyone that the Byzantine navy has no equal.

Especially the pride and joy of our glorious navy, the two brand new super-dreadnoughts Seraph and Cherub will crush anything that opposes them. The men of our Navy with over thousand years of naval tradition and countless naval victories will not fear anything.

ROYAL-IMPERIAL HERALD

ANTI-REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN INITIATED

After the recent terrorist attack on the emperor and diplomats from Niederoesterreich, Emperor Jacob Menelassar III. initiated a nationwide campaign against the republican scum.

"We have to unite our people once again and get rid of this disease, this cancer that is killing us from within," he said. "Also, we owe it to the dead and to our friends in Niederoesterreich. I talked to my cousin Phil II. and he wishes to help us. This alliance of the Emperors shows how powerful our resolve is. The republican scum will face the end of its mission, once and for all!"

...

On another note: The Byzantine fleet was parading today. There were claims of hundreds of ships passing the harbour of Konstantinopoli. Tamurin observers found out that many ships passed the parading zone at least twice. That means that the Byzantine fleet is at best half as big as it has shown.

Also, the so-called "best battleships in the world", the Cherub and Seraph, were not very impressive. They compare with a medium-class cruiser of the Tamurin Navy.

"This shows that our Navy is already the best in the world. The Byzantine navy has a tradition of more than 1000 years, but it's stuck some dozen years in the past." a naval intelligence officer told us.

...


REPUBLICAN VOICE

The totalitarian system has once again proven its true nature. In all cities across the nations, people are imprisoned and interrogated to find the ones whose mission is to implement freedom in our nation.

Is this really the country you want to live in? One where you can't talk, do or think what you want? Imagine a nation, where everybody is equal before God and the law - where your view of things is not pursued or forbidden, but allowed and welcome! This could be our Tamurin.

Help us to get rid of the Lords. Help us create the Republic of Tamurin!


(OOC: This is what's really happening: Imperial secret-police is searching for Republicans all over the nation using Gestapo-methods. Intelligence reports indicate mass-imprisonments and massive human rights violations. Until now, there haven't been any executions, but they can be expected. The efforts are concentrated on the medium-sized city of Avid. The Imperials think that the centre of the Republican resistance is there.)

From: Akiiryan Baronic Council
To: Byzantine Government

Our military observers noted with interest your naval parade yesterday, especially the newly constructed Seraph and Cherub. The Prince has expressed interest in signing a naval treaty with you. He proposes a treaty which would allow shipping from our two great nations to benefit from the protection of each others' fleets in our spheres of influence and an exchange of naval officers so that each nation might learn the skills and protocols of the other.

If this is acceptable to the Byzantine Government we would welcome a visit from Byzantine naval vessels, lead by either the Seraph or Cherub, to the Samae Naval Base for the signing of the treaty. The visit would be repaid in future by a capital ship and escorts from the Akiiryan South Seas Naval squadron.

Emperor Wilson indignantly blasted Phil II today after Phil's blatant attack on the Emperor. Lumping Phil in with the Republicans he was campaigning against, Wilson blasted the "self-centred-ness of foreign and domestic politicians with no regard to the peace of the region and the betterment of all...may you have a fiery place in Hell, blasphemous heretics!" (OOC: And you wondered why we're the HOLY Confederacy... laugh.gif ) Republicans have been silent as to the Emperor's attacks, and public opinion is divided as to the merit of the accusations.

Phil II was filled with Rage on hearing of the Vanarambain Emperor's insinuations against his motives and his stance as a whole.

''This proves my point entirely, Emperor Wilson is a weak-willed man, he campaigns against the Republic Scum in his own country, but has not the resolve to do something about it, and offers the terrorists a peace deal. These Republicans, trying to take our God Given right of the throne away from us, and the apparently 'Holy' Emperor offers them a peace talk.

We will offer Emporer Wilson another chance to came back in our fight against terror, but if he continues to talk peace with the terrorists, we would be better off without him at our side, there will be no peace until the dissident Republicans have all been put down to the dirt they crawled up from.''

On the recovery from a particularly nasty bout of gastric 'flu, Strategos Carus was dismayed to hear the news which had filtered out of Tamurin over the last few days.

"So, its taken a turn for the worst, has it?" Carus sighed. "If the Republicans are going to have to fight against an army, the least we can do is give them decent training."

"Sir?" The aide looked rather worried. "How are we going to do that?"

"By sending one of our best, and more to the point, loyal, units to train them. Bring me the Lieutenant Colonel Commenus. His Imperial Guard battalion will do. I plan to send them to Tamurin to train the rebels."

To: Jacob Menelassar III.
From: Jef van Hantwaarpen, Grand Duke of Rider

It has come to our attention that a few simple-minded citizens are trying to bring unrest to your great nation with their misguided ideals. We have noticed this across the whole of Europa, it has even infected our Grand Duchy of Rider. Some weak governments have fallen under their aggression and for their wrong ideas. But this surely is just a period that shall pass; at the end, the true and most powerful rulers of this region shall have pure blood streaming through our veins. We, Jef van Hantwaarpen, offer you full support against this vermin.


(OOC: In fact, Jef van Hantwaarpen is a weak ruler, who already have caved in for countless social laws. His government is too weak to withstand a revolution and his powers are restricted.)

Information that can be gathered using intelligence:

  • Street-fighting between Imperial Soldiers and Republican Rebels has begun in Avid. At least 100 rebels are defending themselves against a whole regiment (3000 soldiers) of the Imperials.
  • The centre of the city is held by the rebels. They're surrounded and don't have any way to escape. The fighting is hard and fierce. Until now, "only" small arms and machine guns are used.
  • The Imperials are ordering their special forces, the 1st Army Corps (5 divisions, each 10.000 men) under the command of General von Steinburg (an ancestor of the current von Steinburg) to Avid to crush the rebellion. They estimate that more than 1000 rebel soldiers are hiding in Avid or in the area around the city.
  • The 1st Army Corps consists of 3 infantry divisions, 1 cavalry division and 1 artillery division. Heavy weapons will be introduced into the fighting in Avid.


STATEMENT BY THE EMPEROR

Tamurinians!

Rebels have opened fire upon our own people! This shows clearly, that they're enemies of our great nation and controlled by outsiders!

We have friends all over Europa. One example is the message I got from my good friend Jef van Hantwaarpen, the Grand Duke of Rider. The Republicans are talking, that we don't have any friends left - this is another lie of their big bag full of lies!

The Republican Party has not condemned the acts of terrorism by the republican rebels! They're showing sympathy - openly!

Because of this treachery, I'm banning the Republican Party. All members are to be imprisoned and shall face a trial because of their treachery! The leaders of the Party will most likely face the sentence of death - and they deserve it.

Never again shall a un-tamurinian party enter the parliament!

For the Empire! The Lords are destined to rule!
