    To: The New Jersey Rebels
    From: Pennsylvania


    When Pennsylvania went to war with New Jersey over thrity years ago, it was out of self-defense against the government of New Jersey, who had invaded our land. We marched into Trenton to remove the threat that the insane government posed, not only for the protection of our people, but for the population of New Jersey too.

    And ever since New Jersey became part of Pennsylvania, the people of New Jersey have prosepered. And never once have we mistreated the population of New Jersey, even when some of them got it into their heads to rise up. Last year, our armies could have launch large bombing campaings to destroy the rebel armies and cities of New Jersey. But we did not, for fear of harming civilians, who we still recognize as citizens of Pennsylvania.

    We are ready to discuss peace at any time, provided this peace has the result of bringing New Jersey back to Pennsylvania.

    To The World
    From England:

    On behalf of the EAN, we are sending you a message today. Not a request for aid in our fight against tyranny, not to beg money and funds from you but to deliver hope. This is a message of hope. For too long has France enslaved people from across the globe. For too long have they interfered in the relations of people across vast oceans. For too long have they been able to do as they wish without repercussions, to perform vile acts upon the human race itself. No longer will we allow them to reign over the world through terror and bloodshed. No longer will we stand idly by. By the end of this war France will be no more, their age of terror over and a new nation will be born there, watched over carefully by its neighbours. But that day is sadly not today, indeed it may never come. But as long as the people of England and the EAN draw breath it will be our goal.

    We promise the people of the world this, we shall not rest until the threat of French Tyranny is wiped from the globe. We shall not rest until all the people who are under the boot heel of French oppressors, be they Belgium, Morrocan or Indian, are free. We shall not rest until this Evil Empire is done away with.

    The time to rise against this evil is now, rise my friends, rise and show these cowards the time for French Empire is at an end.

    Message to the people of New France

    Citizens! The time to choose is now! You can choose between a dictatorship or a democracy! Do you want to be free? Or do you want to be a slave to an oppressive regime!? Your homes have been overrun, your farmlands, your towns, your lives are now threatened by the very people who wish to see you bonded and forced to work in undesirable locations. You must rise up and push back this tide! Only when we work together can we achieve the impossible and defeat the greatest power in the earth! Just look at our brave airmen! They went up there severely outnumbered and halted the Communist tide and took control of the skies! Let us show them that we can match their bravado and spirit on the battle fields and push the enemy back to the Mighty Columbia River! Join me and we shall prevail!

    Every man that enters the fight will be given training and weapons to do their duty. I ask that all men able to fight to join and protect your families, your homes, your life! We must win! WE WILL WIN!

    To: Pennsylvania


    If Pennsylvania has any respect for the people of New Jersey, which she claims are Pennsylvanian, would you not allow them to pursue their own lives. If you have no respect for the New Jerseyan, how do you respect a man from say...Erie or Philadelphia? We thought we were Pennsylvanians in your eyes.

    I was a young adult when Pennsylvania first invaded. I was not part of the political system back then, I am not part of the enemy you fought 30 years ago. I am different, we are different. We are a people who want sovereignty and freedom, not to fulfill the agenda the previous generation wanted. We only want our freedom to exist with sovereignty, and the freedom to live as a people governed by ourselves. We don't want to fight Pennsylvania for this, but, as we said before, if we must fight, then we shall.

    We are willing to talk, but we will agree to nothing that does not include our complete independence from Pennsylvania.

    You do not recognize New Jersey independence.

    You do not want to invade anyone.

    You do not want a defensive pact with anyone.

    The Blue Tiger Chronicles

    Prologue:​


    This is but one of the legends of which the villagers of Fujian speak….

    Long ago, deep in the Wuyi Mountains, lived the most mysterious of all the world’s many beasts…

    It was told that this creature, covered in a coat of blue, was the absolute master of its domains. Armed with the power to transcend between our world and the celestial heavens, the Blue Coated Creature was able to destroy any beasts which attempted encroach on its kingdom.

    But one day, something changed. Man finally arrived in the Wuyi Mountains, leading the beautiful land down the path of destruction.

    Man, unsatisfied with his conquests of the grasslands and plains, began to destroy the home of the Blue Coated Creature; cutting down forests, flattening mountains and damming the rivers. With the strength of fire and steel, this new adversary was seemingly too powerful for even the Blue Coated Creature to resist.

    But just as all hope seemed lost for the Blue Coated Creature’s Kingdom, a great flood came across the land as if from nowhere. Man’s control over the land began to vanish almost as fast as it had come about.

    Though the Blue Coated Creature could have let those who had infringed upon his lands be destroyed, in his wisdom he could see that Man, despite his flaws, was not truly evil. The Blue Coated Creature thus chose to use his powers to save the lives of as many of his former enemy as he could, keeping them from being utterly wiped out by the wrath of nature.

    Man was of course grateful to the Blue Coated Creature for saving them and a truce was soon agreed upon. Man would receive the valleys and the Blue Coated Creature would continue to rule the surrounding mountains. For many generations this harmony between Man and nature would last, however like any peace, it could not go on forever…

    Centuries later, Man, having forgotten the acts of kindness the Blue Coated Creature had done in past, once again began to encroach upon mountainous kingdom surrounding them. Just as before, forests were cut down, mountains were destroyed and rivers dammed. Only by this time, the Blue Coated Creature had grown old and tired, unable to defend his lands and unable to convince the other beasts of his realm to maintain the peace.

    As Man took more and more land away from the mountainous kingdom, the beasts began to fight to defend their lands, killing all who ventured in too far. As more and more men died, it soon became apparent to Man that must he take up arms and destroy the beasts permanently. Man set the entire forest ablaze, killing nearly all the creatures within, including the Blue Coated Creature.

    Though Man was now the dominant force in the land, controlling both the valleys and the mountains, this would not last long; shortly after these events, another flood, even greater than the first one had come about. With the mountains destroyed, the valleys lost beneath the river’s waters and the Blue Coated Creature not around to help them, Man disappeared from the land shortly thereafter.

    As time passed, life once again began to return to the Wuyi Mountains. Forests regrew, rivers went back to their original paths and even the beasts began to reappear. The Kingdom of the Blue Coated Creature seemed to be on the verge of coming about once again, yet one important piece was still missing: the Blue Coated Creature had yet to reappear….

    We do indeed have much respect for the people of New Jersey, for we consider them Pennsylvanians. And it is because of this that we will not allow you to break away. New Jersey is as much apart of Pennsylvania as Philadelphia or Erie or any other region of the country. And we do not allow regions of Pennsylvania to break away, nor would any other country.

    We would like there to be peace, but only only if it includes the region of New Jersey returning to Pennsylvania. As our goals and opions on this matter a drastcally different, we can see that further disscusion will get us nowhere. We give you one last chance to give in.

    So, you are saying that you would openly fight your own citizens? We shudder atht he thought of how you treat your friends...or even your enemies.

    If you had any respect for us, you would allow us to blaze our own course, and not try and kill us. All you see New Jersey as is a coastline, and the only reason why you care for the people who inhabit it is so that they the Quakers can justify using our Atlantic ports to house their navy. Well, we aren't giving it to you. It is ours, part of our homeland. We no longer want to be governed by a foreign people who don't care about the New Jerseyan people. We want our own nation, and since you refuse to respect our sovereignty, we will fight any and all attempts the Quakers make to subjugate our people. This is the will of our people, the people of New Jersey.

    Rallying support for the American conflict:

    As we disappear in a modernism, that has already concluded our so meaningful lives, it is hard to say what true identity is when we try so hard to become the unreal. It is this existence that is the hardest of all. The meaning of identity is prior to the modern world based on wealth, but in this mediocre society that we live in, we have no idea what to expect or what to become. It is one unraveled being that we scoop ourselves up every day to experience yet another day of whimsical existence in a world obsessed by tabloid news and war ridden countries so distant and dehumanized to our hearts. How this wonderful modern world has become so barbaric, I don’t know, one might even consider this time as brutal as ever before, comparing to the brutality of the ancient Romans and their gladiators and the French libertines. This unholy concoction of being is no less than despicable when it comes to living the perfect life. The truth in living is what we feel, but when we are force-fed tall tales and indiscriminant lies it is hard to believe in any one but you. It is always hard to look the facts in the eye, but it is necessary to compel the masses to feel. Lack of understanding and compassion is tearing this world apart. People slow down, they stop thinking, drifting through their existence without questioning the world. “This is how it has always been, it doesn’t change” what a load of self wallowing. Change is what we make happen, if we cannot have control of our minds and what we feel let us at least control the setting in which this chaotic madness progresses into an unrecognizable sign of worldly despair. It is you people that drift along in the world floating on your own self pity that will one day destroy the world due to your cannibalistic feast on the human intellect. Socialism is truly the fall of man.

    But yet there is hope in the few, the minorities, the abandoned and the lost. We must seek refuge and trust in the weak for it is them that have experienced the sorrow of mankind, it is those with scars so deep that the human soul is showing, it is these people that we must study, it is in the hearts of the unfortunate that we must find the path of righteousness. Stop helping yourself help the helpless the outlawed and the crooked, the mad, the cons, the gangsters, tyrant dictators. In these people we must trust, for it is these magnificent people who have seen the true face of evil, the cold hard truth, the daring questions and the inexplicable.

    Can't you just give us a little freedom? Were just trying to sign defensive pacts with local countries?
