After the Victory Party After the parties and celeberations were over, and the solidarity of the Quad-Alliance (Japanatica, France, Aztecs, and America) was solidified with a continental war against Babylon and Iroquois, who had attacked France. However, tension was brewing within the alliance. France, being good-natured, had signed some MPPs, and wound up at war with the Aztecs. They had an MPP with Russia, also at war with the Aztecs. France even wanted Japanatica to betray the Aztecs, but Japanatica declined. The leaders of Japanatica saw this as troubling. Then, in 1758AD, the unthinkable happened. The Quad-Alliance, which held the world together throughout the industrial era, collapsed. America had attacked Odessa! This fringe town had not yet acquired barracks and harbors, so it had 2 infantry, and 2 cavalary. These units bravely fought until the last man died. Some 10 or so American cavalry perished trying to take Odessa, and finally succeeded. Then, the foreign advisor came with even more terrible news! "Sire! The Americans have signed an alliance with the French against the Aztecs! The alliance is in chaos! ". "What are you smiling about!", the president said. "Oh, I mean, ", replied the Foreign Advisor. France had drawn America into the war. Airports were ordered rushed in the remaining towns. Fortunately, the era of Modern Armor is upon Japanatica, however, a trade needs to be made to acquire Rocketry. Aerial flights have revealed that Odessa, the Japanatican stronghold, was burned to the ground!!!. Japanatican citizens were outraged at the news. They've been through a war before, but now, this was for real. WWII had begun!
