    Notes on Delivery: Same as usual, a tube given to a group or merchants that were headed off to wherever. The Council will try to get the message to both the Princely Council and the Elder Council.
    The scrolls will read as follows:


    As per our last message, the time has now arrived that we might do battle. Our people will not back down from this so grave a misunderstanding, for we are not as foolish as your incompetent messengers whom apparently cannot do the most basic task of updating the correct date of battle. A shame that, really.

    We wish the best of luck to your people’s solidarity, for as was sent to in our initial scroll one of our most important goals is to unite Nazca under one banner. It would be much easier to do so if you actually had some national pride that we could build off.

    In conclusion, may your armies be united and your troops ready when we arrive at the hill.

    I know on discord it was flagged that this sunday was the due date for orders, however to give people a little more time for orders (and so no one can say they were not given sufficient notice) I will set the due date as Sunday 25th July '

    Concordantly, it would be most welcome for players to make contributions on the threads, whether that be in the form of diplomatic notices as in the above post, short stories or anything else. This makes the thread livelier and thus more appealing to the general viewer, and more satisfying for your co-moderators.

    Finally, the sooner you get orders in the better. Kudos to the two players who have already submitted their directives.

    Hearken Tasmina, servant of the King, Priestess of the Lady of the Deep, my sister, thus speaks the Prince Saknutjer your brother. For me all goes well, for you and yours, may all go very well.

    When the lords of Haversten and the princes of Ashdod established diplomatic relations in days past then we became like loving brothers under the rule of Mahat, we did not become brothers for one day only but for all time; indeed did we not establish permanent brotherly relations based on equal standing? Our fathers then made the following agreement: "We are only mortals; thus he who endures shall look after the interests of the son of he who has perished that our sons may inherit our brotherly bonds forever".

    Yet word has come to us that your army has gone beyond mere sporting raiding and attacked Nemsisouk, desirous of its uttermost ruin, in violation of this ancient peace and has been repelled from its walls, praise to Ishat, by an act of providence.

    We must ask, what possesses you to rend asunder all brotherly bonds in such a manner? What evil did the people of Nemsisouk commit against thee that you would seek to slay all who abide within its walls? What behooves you to resort to savageries like those committed by those upstart chattel that so vex our brothers in Mavernus?

    I tell you that our brother the prince of Nemsisouk has sent his messenger unto me and pledged his fealty and subjection to us as his Lord, if we but deliver his subjects from your betrayal and the cruelty you would inflict upon them.

    Hear then our voice. You will relent from your attack against our subject. For we will not suffer our possessions to be dispossessed by thee nor the flame of the Avvim to be snuffed out at the will of the one you serve. If you resist than we shall render the "service" you would render to us with precise reciprocity, to the praise and glory of the Father of Battles, great god of the flame.

    From: Garrangleas & Leathelune

    Whilst your invitation and good will are appreciated, nonetheless preferring the rule and customs of our own people to those of outsiders we must respectfully decline your proposed union with the Emerald Kingdom.

    We do this firstly, as we have noted, out of a desire to maintain our own traditions.

    Secondly whilst your suggested benefits are in themselves appealing we do not believe they are best achieved through the agency of your kingdom. The Emerald Kingdom as you are well aware is presently in a grinding war with the Svartalfar of Bhir Boldahr and our people would inevitably become involved in your quarrel, and any other quarrels your kingdom freely chooses to entertain in the future, should we accede to your request.

    Furthermore what benefit is there in entrusting the liberty of Lord Froedes cult in the hands of the votaries of a strange god when his cult is already free and unencumbered in our midst already? We note that what you choose to bestow now may be taken away later, and that unwritten in your missive is the implication that annexation would presuppose that we grant liberty for your citizens to practice Lotahnic rites in our midsts? We fear that this would invite divine displeasure and at the very least the suggestion that your goddess might be given worship among the sidhe is chimerical.

    These problems outweigh any financial incentive you might propose. Be assured however that we will consider our peoples situation sedulously in light of your proposal and chart an appropriate path forward for their security and prosperity after due counsel is taken amongst ourselves.

    ~ The Marcher Lords of Garrangleas and Leathelune.

    From: The Fey Court
    To: The Emerald Kingdom


    We presumed good Queen that in light of former correspondences that cordial relations had flowered between the House of Towers and the Court of Jormungand and that this new age might see the cultivation of friendship and peace between the Sidhe and their less fortunate neigbours. However word has come to us in our towers that you whisper promises to those lords who have yet to join our assembly and seek to expand your Kingdom to the lands rightfully belonging to our esteemed race.

    We cannot help, in light of your aggressions against the Svartalfar, but interpret these approaches as being hostile to our Court. Whilst we will endeavour to maintain mutually beneficial and cordial relations with your Kingdom despite your indiscretion, presuming such tranquility remains between us as has heretofore been the case, understand that further attempts at encroachment upon Sidhe lands and upon the dominion of Lord Froede will be met with our ill-pleasure and that we will be carefully watching events as they transpire that we might respond accordingly in due course.

    ---

    ooc: A little late as I wanted to enable orders to proceed before the response. The Sidhe response wont affect anything in the region this turn however so no need to worry on that front.

    We meant no ill will against the Sidhe and The Fey Court. Our purpose was to enforce and expand the smaller towns between us to strengthen the trade, and improve the life for the citizens living there.


    We won't proceed with the matter anymore out of respect for the The Fey Court, and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this have caused.

    To The Prince Saknutjer,
    Why do you send threats and chastisement for doing what is right for us both. Are you blind to what is happening to the south of you? We are only removing the rot of weakness that is Nemsisouk and what it could have been. Their weakness would have become yours and ours, a rot that would kill from within and leave us with nothing. So instead of looking out for pox filled beggars strengthen yourselves for at your border, there lies a greater foe.
    King Fuldan of Haversten.

    Hearken Fuldan, King of Haversten, my brother. Thus speaks the Prince Saknutjer your brother. For me all goes well, for you and yours, may all go very well.

    We have threatened no evil to thy kingdom and demanded only what is our due. Nemsisouk has submitted to us and thus is rightly ours by law and custom, in continuing your assault you therefore attack us in the full knowledge that Nemisouk has acceded to our Estate. We are cognisant of the slave-rabble to our south, but we will not forsake our subjects when the sword bears down upon them in the present for fear of a future foe, for such cowardice does not befit servants of the Lord of the Flame nor a prince of the Avvim.

    To Prince Saknutjer
    Those you claim to be your subjects were never yours to subjugate. You claim to be a prince, but now you come in like a thief to steal another's prize. The city is all but mine, why should I give it up to some hastily written claim of ownership by someone who is in no way involved. If you want it prove you deserve it, otherwise deal with your actual problem before you are burned in the fires of your god.
