    Time to start the peace talks, yes?

    NOTE THAT THIS IS BY NO MEANS A DEMAND!

    Purple- Province of Veritas: will be under Emorian control. This is to include the Isle of Veritas and Salvation.

    Green- Province of Tellia
    Blue- Province of Emoria: Will become the new Republic of Tellia.

    Yellow- Province of Mogulia: Is annexed by Khemri and will be considered a part of Khemri from now on.

    Teal- Province Centralium
    Light Blue- Province of Kalmaria: Will become the Kingdom of Kalmar, under the reign of the former royal dynasty.

    Orange- Autonomous Governorate of Kerania
    Brown- Province of Strategium: Will each be separate autonomous domains.



    The CRA demands the unconditional surrender of Veritas, and that Davar ceases any military actions directly or otherwise related to the Great War, which this treaty concerns.

    Here are the terms proposed by the CRA. Some of them are negotiable, and conter-proposals are encouraged. A final agreement that will end the Great War once and for all is our mutual and holy mission, and we should all strive to be co-operative to ensure that the peace talks are successful.

    1: Veritas is to be split into the aforementioned political organizations. With no Assembly or capital, it is clear that Veritas as it was known is no more. The boundaries suggested are based on the territories in former Veritas. The actual borders should be determined by referendums held by the local population to ensure stability.

    2: The new nations of Tellia, Kalamar and the two northern domains will each pay tribute to Khemri, Gorin and Shalamari respectively. The payment will be one eco per round, for no more than three rounds. The exception to this is the two northern domains. These will pay one eco each to Shalamari, after which they are not obligated to pay any more tribute.

    3: The nations of Davar and Tristaria are by no means allowed to interfere with the political affairs of the aforementioned new states. Breaking this will be considered a violation of this treaty and reacted to accordingly. They are also encouraged to officially renounce all former ties with Veritas, and are forbidden to attempt a revival of the old Veritas by any means, in any fashion.

    Further details about the conditions of surrender to follow... Will edit this post as the peace talks progress.

    Emor Request Control of the Porovince of Emoria in adition to the Isle of Vertis. though they did abandon us in a misguided fit of Loalyty toward Vertis, they Are still Our Kin, and it is still Our Ansestrial Land.

    Emor was undoubtably played a key part in the victory over Veritas. This seems acceptable.

    To the Crystal Alliance, Emor, Veritas, and Tristaria
    From Davar

    Long has our land been rifled from war. We were united from it, and if the One chooses so, we will die from it. We believe that to abadon a fallen comrade is a sin upon itself. However, we knew better than to continue this war.

    From the beginning it was pure Veritisian aggresion, the desire to prevent the rebuilding of Khermi and it's allies. We knew that somehow, someway this would end in disastor. So with a heavy heart, we gave control to Veritas. And as predicted, the world fell. Veritas is no more, and it seems that the opposition is clearly determined to keep it that way.

    Only years ago has man been born in Davar that preached the values of trust, dependability, and balance. Veritas' fall was the fact that it became overzealous in it's crusade, to hungry for war to accept peace. We advised the Veritisian command to avoid continuing this war, but their minds were set to it.

    As said before, we have been in war nearly continuos since our creation. We thank the Veritians for their assistance and help, but quite blankly we are tired. War shall be no more for Davar. We hearby sign Shalamari's treaty,m and announce that following the peace talks we will renounce any pact-defensive or whatever- to be invalid. Davar will seek a place of isonalistism, a place of peace and balance. No threat should ever be expeected from us.

    OOC: I told him not to continue the war. Emor wasn't that trustable of an ally and I knew something was gonna go wrong. I'll sign peace.

    We are most relieved of your willingness to see beyond the matters of the past, and are able to sign this treaty. It is a great pleasure to resume peaceful relations with your great nation. Let us maintain contact to ensure the Great War does not repeat itself again. Furthermore, there is a new threat against the Civilized World in the north, which will updoubtably be the concern of every nation, from West to East...

    We will have nothing to do with the threat immediatly. We wish for peace and the chance to grow for once, not send young men off to die in another senseless conflict. However if the combined forces of every nation are defeated by the barbarians, then we will not act the parts of fools. But for now this does not concern us.

    OOC: For some reason, when ever I see the word Darkening I think of a fish... :(

    Heaven Speaks

    As the stately procession marched past, the rows of mourners in white joined the entourage and followed the procession. Thousands upon thousands followed the body of Emperor Han to his cremation. An ornate ceremony in all respects, for a great Emperor, whom in fifty years of reign had brought great prosperity to Guangfei. Guangfei had expanded greatly during his reign in all directions of peaceful conquest, assimilation. The power of her culture was simply, too great to resist. The temptations of a better life, a prosperous and long life was something that few people could ever refuse for their children.

    Of course, in any group you have your radicals. People who value their independence in name so much, that even though they spoke like us, did business like us, prayed like us, farmed like us and are essentially “us” they still refuse to be assimilated. To deal with such nations and people, their government structure must be ruined, their stability destroyed. Their livelihood must become so terrible that they will throw off the shackles of any “independence” to embrace the greatness of our nation.

    A bit cold blooded of course, but politics and statesmanship usually involved a lot of dirty hands. The honorable Emperor Han, a forthright and righteous man to all eyes had more fingers in the pot of intrigue then many could ever believe. That shrewd man, had been the cause for the instability of Shangei for the long period of instability. Though to the uniformed, this “manliest of man” as he appeared on the outside, reveling in wine, women and sports, his wife, the conniving Empress Si had been behind all the intrigues.

    Of course, not that the said Emperor was the Dowager Empress people had decided discretion was the best policy. The new Emperor, Emperor Xian, former Prince Liu An, was relatively inexperienced in the management of the Empire despite his long career in administrating new peoples which had petitioned the Dragon Throne to become part of Guangfei.

    Though by now stability was guaranteed as no one wanted a civil war of course, civil wars were terrible things. It probably is a good thing to dislike the Crown Prince because his political views are different, but to actively plot with another Prince against him? Unspeakable! And bring an end to the century long peace? Everyone loved peace, even though there was a small fraction of officials who called for war with Shangei to “Bring all under Heaven, under Heaven.”

    Of course, there was the matter of the small city state to the west of the greatness of Guangfei, a small blot on the horizon that was completely assimilated only holding out for unknown reasons. Of course, pretty much no one cared. People never complain or congratulate the government when things are going well though they’re the first to point fingers when things go bad. Of course, the fact that everyone was obsessed with the new “sushi” thing could be another reason. The idea of raising fish in the irrigation ditches was a great success and peasants now had access to a greater variety of diet then they had ever before.

    And the fact that the reading of the stars was highly popular among all people giving them great joy in hypothetically seeing the future. Palm readers had also become popular, being able to see one’s future by reading the lines upon the palm as well as feeling the hand. A smooth soft hand symbolizes a soft and comfortable life while a hard muscular hand symbolizes a hard life with much work.

    Lines on the palm also determined one’s life span as well as fortunes in life. Heaven was prone to whimsy…

    By all means. This is a time to rebuild. If the Lengels indeed prove to be a threat to us all, we will most likely have fallen by then. ;) (That's not really funni...)

    Lord Kaiser Rajo Oborski of Gorin, Lord of the Dusk, here by signs the treaty put forth by the Shalamari.

    From the Gorinese Empire
    To Davar

    War has plagued our nations for to long and the Lord Kaiser knows that it was Veritas, in their evil ways, that forced you to aid them. Now that they are no more the Lord Kaiser would like to formally ask the Davar Republic for trade. This will be through our vassal Kelmaria and Rajo Oborski hopes that this trade will mend great rift between our two nations. Also Gorin would like to sign a treaty of friendship between Davar and the Gorinese Empire.

    We apologize, but at this time no such trade treaties can be signed. We will, however, sign the friendship treaty and promise no attacks will come from Davar to any nation.

    To: All

    Do what you will with the land. It is tainted, tainted with the sins of our people. In utter folly we chose to repeat the sins of Pride that caused our original exile. And now our punishment will be even greater This is our fault, and we are the sinners. But Emor is the sin.

    Veritas respected and trusted Emor from the very beginning. Veritas established the nation of Emor, brought it into the Republic peacefully, and then protected and aided it when it chose to leave. And in return, you seize and destroy the holiest city of your religion, and slaughter the same Assemblum that spared your ancestors. An Assemblum that had no idea of the plot that Delagani and Dominius hatched.

    Might we add...Dominius is not dead. He still leads us. His entire assassination was a fakery of the Stratikrator. But you...you have done something far worse.

    May all your lands be blighted forever, may all your fortunes turn against you, may the very bread you eat turn to ash in your mouths. At the last, may you be cursed to wander a barren desert, your feet eternally bleeding, your chest eternally burdened with sorrowing sighs.

    Do what you will with the land. We are going.

    Ok, for my next stories I need some info.

    I need:

    Rough descriptions of the Gorin, Shalamari, and Khermi, Emor, Myocians, and the Barbarians (Swade)- (dominate hairstyles, average height, skin color, military uniforms. etc.)
    I also need a rough description of where the major battle took place in Khermi, if you don't mind.

    From Thlayli- Rough descrptions of people and the land, along with the name of the major book of the One, the tounge it's written in, the major beliefs, and if there is one, the name of a phophet.

    Thanks. Hopefully first chapter will be up two to three days after I get info.
