    All orders are in, so orders locked!

    A sample of what's to come...

    Other Powers

    Uganda joins the ATO. 12. The government passes an Enabling Act to allow accession, but the matter must be decided by majority vote of the ATO.

    Yeas: Madagascar
    Nays: Biafra, Tanzania, South Africa

    Only Madagascar backs the accession bid of its fellow consolidated autocracy; the moderately autocratic Tanzania sides with its allies in the African Triangle. Uganda’s bid is rejected.

    It becomes apparent that the African Triangle will dominate the agenda of the ATO; Madagascar is just along for the ride of the organization it helped form.

    Sicily signs a full alliance with Crusaders and Ethiopia. 13 (16).

    Ethiopia, as suzerain of the Crusaders, issues its opinion. 15 (17).
    Crusaders – 18 (20).

    The Emperor of Ethiopia is quite eager to secure the Crusaders’ flank, for it is his own flank, and the Crusaders are just as eager as well. The Alexandria Pact forms; the colloquial name is “The Dictators Club.”

    (Ethiopia gains 18 Security, Crusaders gain 15, Sicily 16)

    Slovakia signs a full alliance with Bavaria and Brandenburg-Saxony, the Alliance for Central European Sovereignty, which emphasizes continued sovereignty for its members from great and regional power interference. 17 (20). +8 Security.

    Bavaria. 20 (20). The Bavarian King is able to use the threat of major powers to shame corrupt officials into submission. +5 Security; Corruption Drops to Clean.
    Brandenburg-Saxony. 14 (12). Despite the alliance with the UUC, Brandenburg-Saxony still joins to demonstrate a commitment to sovereignty.

    ACES is formed. Its members have a -2 to Client attempts and -4 to diplomatic annexation attempts.

    Actions

    FRCN

    Action One. Offer alliance to the Philippines with 9 EP (+2). 13 (18).

    The Filipino President welcomes a full alliance with the mighty FRCN.

    (+36 Security for FRCN, +7 Security for Philippines)

    Action Two. Improve relations with Singapore with 3 EP (+2). 4 (8)

    Singapore exchanges pleasantries and generic talk about closer relations, but there is nothing substantive from the meeting.

    Vandread Empire

    Action One. Capture and eliminate Quebecois-UUC agents. 7 (11).

    The Emperor’s security forces are confident at having purged all infiltrators.

    Action Two. Negotiate a trade agreement with the ATO. 10 (11).

    The ATO deliberates, and reaches a decision to admit the Vandread Empire as an observer state with some trade privileges.

    (Vandread Empire will receive 0.5% of ATO’s value; ATO’s value has 2% of Vandread EP added)

    UUC

    Action One. Full alliance and trade pact with Saxony-Brandenburg. 16 (15).

    Saxony-Brandenburg accedes to a full alliance with the UUC, though it does give a gentle caution that this will not lead to a gradual slide into client status.

    (UUC +28 Security, Brandenburg +4 Security)

    Action Two. Create a new supply center in North England. 10 (12).

    A straightforward success. +1 Supply Center in North England.

    High Kingdom

    Action One. Use the Kingdom’s high education to increase Security. 15 (17). (+32 Security)

    Action Two. Expand public health. 3 (4). The Kingdom can’t catch a break with this subject. (-11 Health)

    India

    Action One. Provide monetary assistance to new startups. 7 (8)

    It appears the massive tax cuts had the unfortunate side effect of leading some departments more cash strapped than others, so the startup donations have minimal impact.

    Action Two. Provide regulations and tax incentives to high tech corporations to try and make India the new Silicon Valley. 14 (15)

    New corporations move to India in droves, spurring its tech industry.

    (+10 EP)

    Wars

    Polish Invasion of the Baltics

    The Polish Army declares a ceasefire and withdraws from Karelia, allowing the Baltic League to reclaim the area without a shot fired.

    Indonesian War



    The FRCN-Papuan forces are able to wipe the Indonesian military out, occupying all of the major islands of the Archipelago.

    (Annexation rolls will be in stats sheet)

    Arabian War



    In a move surprising some observers after the Empire’s recent diplomatic turn, but most seeing as a natural consequence of alliance acquisition, Ethiopia invades the Islamic Federation, overrunning the Hedjaz with the assistance of the Crusaders.

    The occupation of Mecca by a Christian power – especially when one of them is named the Crusaders - does not go over well with several Muslim countries.

    The King considers emergency action to stop his citizens spreading ill-health, disease and poor hygenie. He also considers blocking trade and other contacts with neghbours. Prime Minister Star-Four Henry talks about herd immunity which does not go down well with King or People.

    In the end nothing is done.

    Action 1: Offer of Alliance to Shanghai
    As too late with Shanghai, will instead Increase Security

    Action 2: Offer of Increased Trade with Chinese Empire

    The United Uruk Clans welcomes the potential ending of conflict in the Baltic with the news that the Polish army has declared a halt and began to withdraw. We are open to conduct diplomatic talks with Poland. May we suggest, if the Baltic League and Poland approves, a conference in Visby, Gotland, so that we can enshrine the terms of peace between Polish and Baltic realms?

    As for the Vandread: we are eyeing this particular episode and ponder whether this counter spying operations is a effort to hunt down anti-regime dissidents.

    We are not amused by the episode in Arabia and will keep a close eye. Uruktok and other members of the International Convention of Refugees & Asylum Seekers will continue to host those seeking shelter from conflict and other injustices.

    We welcome our new alliance with Saxony-Brandenburg. The United Clans will enjoy the trade pleasure from this new pact.

    Finally we are pleased to report the success of new supply hubs in North England through the development of Aztar Markatji. May glory comet to the United Uruk Clans!

    GM Notes

    -New power category of “emerging” has been included for those minor states that are on the verge of becoming regional powers; at the moment, only the Caribbean and Ummah Confederacy (Afghanistan) qualify. This is for your planning purposes; regional powers have benefits that minor states do not.

    New Units

    Too many to count; please consult stats sheet under “Extra Units.”

    News from Around the World

    End of the Baltic War?

    Analysts are puzzled at the sudden decision of Polish President Karmazyn to withdraw his forces from Karelia and declare a unilateral ceasefire pending full withdrawal and a peace agreement. Most believe that the Polish military is consolidating its grip on the Baltic coastline rather than extending itself into Karelia.

    "The Dictators’ Club"

    The Crusader State and Sicily have formed a trilateral alliance with Ethiopia, the Alexandria Pact. It has been lampooned as “The Dictators’ Club” in the UUC and FRCN press. One commentator noted, “the only reason the Papal States and Romania aren’t included is because they hate each other.”

    Some see the Alexandria Pact as a force for peace as it nullifies a lot of potentially dangerous wars in the Mediterranean. Others see it as a possible source of instability given the nature of the states that make it up.

    The Shifting Middle Eastern Balance

    The Islamic Federation has come under attack from the Crusader State and Ethiopia; Mecca has already been occupied, provoking outrage in many Muslim countries.

    Perhaps not surprisingly, one of the most outspoken countries is the Ummah Confederacy centered on Kabul with its reactionary Islamic ideology. The Ummah Confederacy has been a historic foe of the democratic Arabia, and is currently classed as an emerging power.

    It remains to be seen if any Muslim powers will intervene, or if fear of Ethiopia's military and economic might will keep them out of it.

    The Fall of Indonesia

    A combined FRCN-Papua military force has seized control of all the major population centers of Indonesia; the Indonesian government is effectively no more. While many of the captured territories are putting up firm resistance to the occupation forces, believing the campaign against Indonesia to have been based on lies, the Javanese have welcomed the FRCN and already applied to become the newest members of the federation.

    Relationship Boost

    Philippines – +1 with FRCN
    Barbados - +1 with Vandread Empire

    Research Breakthrough (Based off research level; emerging powers and above only)

    Education: India +10
    Health: Ethiopia +10
    Leisure: India +10
    Security: High Kingdom +10

    Resource Boost (Increased odds with more territory)

    NPC Actions

    The Maghreb applies to join the ATO. It offers 11 EP to South Africa, 7 to Biafra, and 9 to Tanzania, purely as gestures of friendship and in no way a bribe considering the African Triangle's domination of ATO politics.

    The Holy See announces the abdication of Pope Pius XVII, who gave an announcement that God gave him an epiphany that he should resign to make way for fresh leadership in uncertain times. Born Giuliano Modano of Tuscany, Pius XVII worked tirelessly to keep the peace in Europe, constantly wary of Romanian aggression, and worked with fair success to contain it by aligning with fellow loyal Catholics in Poland.

    The Holy Spirit has guided the College to elect Jean Richelieu as Pope Peter III. With a new Bishop of Rome comes a new vision for peace and stability.

    His Holiness, noting Poland's apparent instability in leadership given the abrupt decision to withdraw from the Baltic War (even if the Papacy applauds a quick end to the conflict), is not confident that its alliance will be honored in a worst case scenario. Furthermore, with the Papal States' alliance having been rejected by the Central European powers, His Holiness has been forced to consider other security arrangements. Some Cardinals suggested that the Holy See perhaps seek alliance with the UUC bloc; His Holiness rejects this on the belief the UUC sphere is overextended and might not offer optimal protection to Rome's patrimony. While an alliance with the Crusaders seems intuitive, His Holiness is hesitant to join the Alexandria Pact because of the foreign policy portfolios of Sicily and Ethiopia and how these could possibly drag The Vatican into a war it does not desire.

    The Pope, as a humble servant of God on this Earth, tasked with protecting and guiding Catholics and all humanity in the pursuit of peace and prosperity, has received guidance from The Lord, one that provides a way to guarantee security for the Papal States as well as defuse the tension in Southern Europe.

    The Papal States offer a defense pact to the Romanian Emperor, on the condition that the Catholic citizens of Romania be treated equally with the Empire's Orthodox population; the Papacy or another organization such as the ICRAS must be able to periodically investigate Romania to ensure good treatment. His Holiness, normally a steadfast believer in national sovereignty, will of course reciprocate and allow the same investigations of the Papal States to make sure that Orthodox citizens are given the same rights as Catholics. His Holiness Pius XVII is hopeful that the Romanian Emperor will see utility in an alliance that essentially erases any chance of a future war in the Balkans.

    Naturally, should Romania accept this gesture of friendship, the Papacy's conditional alliance with Poland will be formally dissolved.

    (3 NPC actions not accounted for)

    Shanghai no longer exists, having been annexed by Sino-Korean forces.

    To the surprise of the Sejm, President Karmazyn and the Government are open to signing a white peace accord.

    The United Uruk Clans are pleased with the progress with the Baltic-Polish situation.

    We will make two declarations:


    Action One: Visby Accord

    Conduct a peace conference in Visby, Gotland with both Poland and the Baltic League to seek a white peace between the powers, with a investment from the UUC of 6EP to help in reconstruction. Our diplomats will set forth to enshrine all sides to seek out a white peace, setting all occupied lands back to the Baltic League and to set out a non-aggression agreement between Poland and the Baltic League. Highlight that we will be eager to help recover the economies hindered and to help Baltic refugees that seek to return to that which they fled from. Our main aim is to enshrine a end to the Baltic Conflict.


    Action Two: African Triangle

    Seek out a treaty with the African Trade Organization to promote fair trade, ecological protection and to invite them into both IREGS and ICRAS. Our objective is to enshrine good trade that gives us prosperity while strengthening worker rights (including democratic workplaces) and ecological protection, while we also strive to invite the members of the A.T.O. to both the I.R.E.G.S. and I.C.R.A.S to promote geological co-operation and refugee protections respectfully. Our diplomats will hope to enshrine this deal for the benefit of glory and prosperity.

    2. Build a new city called New Chicago after clearing out the ruins of the original Chicago. New Chicago will rise like a phoenix from the ashes of the Second Great Chicago Fire and become one of the financial cities of the world. 5 EP will be invested to insure the success of the project.
    Unit Orders:
    • Move Air wing from Louisiana to Missouri.
    • Create a new army unit in Louisiana.

    India has not given orders but in the interest of keeping the country from falling too far behind, one automated action will be made consistent with prior actions.

    FRCN

    Action One. Recruit observers from the Zapatistas to be sure honest behavior is upheld in occupied Indonesia. 7 (12).

    The Zapatistas are able to dispatch experts to keep an eye on the situation on the ground in occupied Indonesia, ensuring that human rights are respected regardless of the islands’ final legal status. If nothing else, they inspire rank and file Indonesians to be a little more cooperative with authorities.

    (Occupation income from Indonesia raised to 30% from 20%).

    Action Two. Invest in the arts, entertainment, and sports programs. 13 (14).

    (+25 Leisure)

    Vandread Empire

    Action One. Found the Imperial Space Agency, to provide for rocketry and the launching of Vandread satellites into orbit. 5 (6). For all the buzz, the proposed rocket systems are clearly faulty. (-6 Education)

    Action Two. Found the City of New Chicago to serve as a financial center, with 5 EP invested. 14 (15).

    Success! A shiny new metropolis cements the permanence of Vandread rule in the former Great Lakes Confederacy, attracting businesses from all over the world and reinforcing the Vandreads’ status as the world’s most powerful nation.

    (+1 City, +6 EP)

    UUC

    Action One. Enact the Visby Accord, which allocates 6 EP to the Baltics for reconstruction, provides a white peace, and has the Baltics and Poland sign a non-aggression pact. 12 (14).

    The UUC sets up the meeting, now it just falls to the parties to come to the table.

    --The Baltics – 15 (18). The Baltics feel little desire for reparations after the generous grant from the United Clans, and so they focus on restoring the antebellum borders and otherwise returning to normality.
    --Poland – 4 (7). The Polish representatives get ready to sign the Treaty but are abruptly recalled; President Karmazyn has ended the ceasefire with Polish troops still in control of the Baltic Republics. Seems the Pope was right to think Karmazyn has a few screws loose. Some Polish forces are captured due to the awkward timing, but nonetheless, the war is hot once again, now with Poland’s forces in an excellent defensive posture.

    Because it is apparent this might be a long-term conflict, the Baltic League is able to draw up a defense treaty with the UUC (so long as the UUC does not decline it of course).

    (Poland -3 Security. UUC +14 Security. Baltic League +6 Security)

    Action Two. Sign a cooperation agreement with the ATO, providing for fair trade and ecological cooperation while also inviting all its members to join the ICRAS and IREGS. 5 (6). Unfortunately, the package of initiatives fumbles and is not able to get very far. (-3 EP)

    High Kingdom

    Action One. Increase Security. 11 (12)

    +7 Security.

    Action Two. Increase trade with Kingdom of China. 9 (12)

    Trade Pact worth 2% of EP implemented with China.

    India

    Action One (Automated). India invites several fellow democracies of the Indian Ocean – the Maldives, Thailand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, and Australia – to form the Indian Ocean Trade Organization, to better coordinate economic and environmental policy among our shared ocean. The IOTO shall be governed by two-thirds supermajorities. 18 (20).

    India passes the proposal by huge margins. It now goes to the prospective members.

    (IOTO is created, offering 2% of members EP as a bonus, and +2% to Education research. +13 EP)

    Maldives. 1 (1). The Maldives see this as Indian imperialism and immediately put up trade protections to stem a flood of Indian goods. Fearing the specter of Hindu domination, it moves to form an alliance with the Ummah Confederacy. (-2 to Relations, -2 EP)

    Thailand. 12 (13). Thailand accedes.

    Sri Lanka. 13 (13). Sri Lanka accedes.

    South Africa. 5 (7). While South Africa has a moderate interest in the proposal, it feels the ATO should be its primary multilateral partnership. There is a minor increase in trade barriers from the failed invitation. (-1 EP)

    Australia. 6 (11). Oz desires economic growth and, having had positive relations with India in the past, accepts the invitation.

    Other Powers

    The Papacy arranges for the creation of a watchdog for religious freedom with Romania, and on that condition, proposes a defensive alliance. 12 (16)

    Security of Faith International is formed, with the purpose of hiring neutral observers to examine compliance with religious protection agreements. SFI does not take a normative stance on religious freedoms, merely measuring compliance with agreements. (All members get +1% to Leisure research)

    In spite of the historical enmity, both states see the benefits of an alliance, and the Adriatic Alliance comes into being, a defense alliance that nullifies the chance of conflict in much of Southern Europe. The Papacy annuls its conditional pact with Poland, and sets about cooperation with its new ally.

    (Gain Historical Enmity, -3 to relations, while the old -5 modifier is cleared.)

    The Maghreb applies to join the ATO. 11 EP to South Africa, 7 to Biafra, and 9 to Tanzania (+2 to relations each). 11 (11).

    The Maghrebi Sultan is able to get the measure past some skeptical aristocrats, and it goes to the ATO for consideration.

    Nays: Madagascar (Token vote, since the Triangle determines admission)
    Yea: Tanzania, South Africa, Biafra

    The Maghreb accedes to the ATO! With that, the ATO is now majority autocratic, so the democratic messaging becomes less central.

    Wars

    Polish Invasion of the Baltics

    The Polish retreat stops as Karmazyn changes his mind once again. But no military moves are made just yet.

    Arabian War



    The Islamic Federation Navy prepares to launch an assault on Oman to tie down Ethiopian air wings, but comes under fire from the Ummah Confederacy. Many Ummah pilots lose their lives that day, but as they are dying, the Supreme Leader is giving speeches about how they have earned their place in Paradise by securing a great victory for the Confederacy: with the promise of Mecca, southwestern Iran and ample financial compensation for their recently-lost hardware, the Confederacy has entered the war on the side of the Crusaders and Ethiopia.

    Ethiopian-Crusader forces overrun Nejd. Almost immediately, analysts are able to report on the long-term situation: without Riyadh, the Islamic Federation only has enough supplies to maintain its entire military for a year.

    (Ummah -7 Security

    Islamic Federation -20 EP, -18 Pop)

    GM Notes

    Spoiler :
    Government Adjustments

    Consolidated government types have been boosted to give them further advantages. Consolidated autocracies now grant +1 to all diplomacy, representing the iron will of their leaders, while consolidated democracies now have +1 to all diplomacy with weak democracies and +2 with consolidated democracies. This is slightly weaker than the autocratic effect, but consolidated democracies also have more EP on average due to their growth bonus, which can be used to incentivize other states.

    These bonuses do not apply to attempts to annex.

    Long-term, the idea here is you will want all your allies to be a consolidated regime type.

    Other Adjustments

    NPC initiative. Originally, 5% of the NPCs in the game (that aren’t Great Powers) received Initiative per turn. Now it is the same as the number of players the prior turn that got orders in. So, for this turn, 4 NPCs besides Ethiopia have Initiative.

    Gifts. Clarified in the rules that net EP (which is seen on the first page of stats) is used to determine the effect on relations from a gift, not base EP (which can be seen in the military stats).

    Movement rules. I’ve clarified these a little in light of the increased navy and air operations; this is under Units.


    New Units (Units may be placed every even numbered turn)

    N/A

    News from Around the World

    Coup Attempt Foiled

    “Our Aztec ancestors would be proud.” The Emperor of Mexico spoke before crowds in Phoenix after the gruesome public executions of several foreign spies. The Mexican Emperor had recently survived a coup attempt; all evidence points the Zapatistas attempting to usurp the Mexican autocracy to install a democratic regime that would abandon Mexico’s claim to Zapatista territory.

    The Zapatistas have not denied the charges. They have simply noted the superiority of the Zapatista military, while continuing to insist they wish for a peaceful resolution to the border disputes.

    The Clans Rule The Waves

    Not only do the United Clans possess the world’s largest navy (tied with the FRCN), but their merchant marine has improved dramatically in the past year. Clan-originating ships are noticeably larger and have better fuel economy. They are slowly but surely starting to dominate freight contracts around the world.

    Fired and Forgotten

    Angola arrested hundreds of citizens on charges related to Kongolese espionage, and several dozen have been sentenced to life imprisonment (Angola abolished the death penalty after the Revolution). The Kongo denies the charges, but Angola has quite a bit of evidence to the contrary. Thus far, however, neither country has made a move to attack the other; the African Cold War continues.

    The Storm of the Indian Ocean

    India, long a peaceful, trade-centered power, has expanded its foreign affairs presence through the formation of the IOTO. Several states warmly received the IOTO’s creation and the promising future it has for coordinated economic policy, though the Maldives saw it as a Hindu imperialist plot and scrambled to pledge their allegiance to the Ummah Confederacy.

    Nonetheless, India’s clear messaging of democratization as a prerequisite for membership has been praised by observers who believe it will help reinforce human rights and peace in the region. Romanian commentators have scoffed at the idea of democratization will do anything besides lead to more chaotic wars.

    NPC Diplomacy

    Ethiopia requests permission from India for its fleet to pass through the Arabian Sea, noting India's dominance of the area.

    The Kingdom of China proposes a defensive alliance with the High Kingdom, to ensure the continued peace and prosperity of all Asia.

    NOTE: since Kingdom of China is a regional power/NPC, the High Kingdom does not have to roll to pass this treaty, only China does.

    (For everyone else: I have added clarifications to the Diplomacy section on whether diplomacy requires both sides roll for it or just one. In short: player-to-player or Great Power-to-Great Power diplomacy requires both sides roll; everything else just requires both sides agree and the initiating side roll. An exception is multilateral agreements, in which case the Initiating power must succeed, and then everyone else rolls on whether to join or not.)

    NPC Actions


    Ethiopia requests admission to the African Trade Organization as well as observer status for its allies the Crusaders and Sicily, with their African territories of Egypt and Libya (respectively) being added into the ATO's economic zones and all their benefits. The Emperor understands the ATO's reservations with admitting powers involved in a war, but he also notes Ethiopia's considerable resources, which could be used either to advance the ATO's mission... or that of an alternative economic organization. Should the ATO decline the offer, the Emperor respects that decision, but in the interests of Ethiopia, would have to consult with other African powers about economic integration.

    The Emperor also sends 8, 13, and 10 EP to Biafra, South Africa, and Tanzania as a gesture of friendship.

    China signs a defensive alliance with the High Kingdom, assuming the offer is accepted.

    Sicily proposes a trade pact with Romania and the Papal States, to integrate the economies of the Mediterranean.

    Biafra pursues an Urbanization program to help drive economic growth.

    The Clans at War

    Due to the continued aggression by the Polish government towards the Baltic League and due to the signing of the defense pact the United Uruk Clans' part in the Baltic War has upgraded from damage control to peace enforcement: we will take on the side of the defendant against the warmongering President Karmazyn. In Gotland we had hoped to avoid this but it is appears glory will be gathered on the battlefield instead of the diplomatic table. Our warriors will be set forth to help guard the Baltic League against Karmazyn's aggressive ambition.

    Our war-goal, now that Poland has decided to continue warfare, is to set them to pay up to the Baltic League and to enter a much more enforced agreement of non-aggression. We are prepared to make Poland a client if it does not see the error of its ways but we will judge any claims from their surrender depending on the positioning during the conflict. We will uphold honor and will safeguard any refugees from the war-zones.

    In light of entering war the structural directive of the United Uruk Clans is to see to the ascension of the Warchief. In peace time we do not have a singular executive figure but in time of war or other hyper dangerous situations the Clan Assembly has the power to appoint a Warchief to hold executive dominion to lead the UUC against the crises. Among our warriors the Assembly has considered for candidates the one who ascend the title of the Warchief will be Bula Paflok ro Miot. May this daughter of Clan Miot demonstrate the needed might to lead us in the right against our foes in the Baltic War. As declared by law the title will be forgone once the war has ceased and the UUC is once more in a momentum of peace and prosperity.

    Needless to say we will be setting Karelia to be guarded: it will not be taken again!

    Now to our actions:

    Action One: Call to Arms

    We give a call to arms for Brandenburg-Saxony and Iberia to help us in the Baltic War. Naturally the Rhenish Republicwill be set to join us. We will remind them of the need to keep aggressors at bay, while also hoping to nib one of three potential threats to our peace. This call to arms will be specially hoping for Brandenburg-Saxony due to their strategic closeness to a Polish air-base which puts them in a prime position to launch a assault.

    If successful request the Rhenish forces to mobilise to the capital of Brandenburg-Saxony to provide cover for the advancement of the army of Brandenburg-Saxony in Polish territory.


    Action Two: Jurvik

    Declare Jurvik (York) a city and ensure the support for its rise on the map. The city will be a center of culture and networked with agricultural sites. This will mark a good day for the UUC!

    Glory to the Clans!
