    Your attempt to force the conversion of an entire nation to your strange faith WITHOUT A PROPER TRIAL FAILS FREEBORN!!! This angers the clans, whom have issued a massive trial of refusal. Hordes of genetically superior warriors and giant mechs of destruction will arrive in (2) turns from the Pokensky cluster. Perpare yourself!

    It has passed post #100: time to round up before checking on Project Wardrobe.

    10: report noted.

    13(13 due to +1 cancelled out by a +1 from other side): you engage the Union forces and bring hindrance to their faster forces. (Union suffers -1 to speed based rolls until the issue is repaired)

    11: you have succeeded in conscripting a new naval force (gain Ghost Washington Fleet)

    16: they indeed could not (provinces are left scorched Earth; you force is now in sea; gain 100 golds worth of EP, plus left the Union hanging)

    First: New York, then Washington.

    4(5): the battle proved costly and your forces were forced to retreat; the 3rd Howard Bisons have lot a lot of their forces. Worst a quarter were left dead and ready to be made into thralls of the vampires. [Howard Bison reduced to 50% strength and the vampire has 25% of the Bisons potential for undead army. Plus side the Bisons have +1 XP]

    16(17): you arrived in time as the pirate conducted a burning policy that left much of the city in ruins but you manage to save Congress and secure the prime institutions of government. [saved Congress and have the admin lost removed; the Washington Guard gain +5 XP]

    17(19): the 202nd found support among local resistance forces, who aided not only in storming the local administration but also to locate a covert facility. After securing the facility your forces located some short of energy array that linked to a prime facility in Wales. Your forces secured the device and took it off some short of network; this has caused disruption to Project Wardrobe as the device was used to help keep whatever they are conducting in a stable fashion but safe to say the dimensional aspect were true as the device seems to co-ordinate locations; one set in New Zealand and the other just outside the facility in Wales. Either way: the liberation and mission was success. [Project delayed till post #130; your forces gain Newfoundland and the 202nd gain +10XP plus +1 to engagements against Manx forcse. +3 prestige]

    I will go with NC on the results of the Saber notion that you are following Saber now but you are a utopia?

    9: ideals are not to be.

    ---

    Due to keeping the wizards of Tyo at bay it should be alerted that continued notions to the parent may materialist said wizards and they won't have a GM to stop them.

    ---

    8: you hurt your own hand. [Johan suffers -1 HP]

    20(19): ... [Aile is at a status challenge: potential risk he may no longer be GM?!]

    ...

    ...

    ...

    Error: Project Wardrobe delayed to post #130 and GM amok; will need to proceed... with... with...

    ......BZZZzzzz

    15: Thor is now a GM.

    Happy new time!

    2: Your agents fail spectacularly at couping the government to attempt these reforms, and as a response they were expelled by a wave of counter-reformers from a new religion developing in the New Union believing that George Washington ascended to Heaven after establishing the American Republic and is now the only true diety. As the First Amendment has already been broken down, this religion soon becomes the state religion of the Union, although it only actively propagates it in areas following Saberism. In addition, a second Red Scare begins, and while some small reforms restricting the power of businesses are passed in the interests of protecting the Democracy, overall you've made far more progress against your goals than for it.
    [New Union: Get +2 to all rolls involving the spread of the new Washingtonian faith within its own borders.] (See the inserted file for the roll.)


    Even as the Undead scourge our lands, we continue to advance ever onward and defend our sacred Union. The Eternal Washington shall guide our forces and our holy democracy to victory in the face of the Undead and evil Saberists! Washington Vult! (Note that this isn't an order-)

    It seems the Bisons have suffered dramatic casualties in their New York offensive. Withdraw their remaining forces and attempt to reinforce them and reestablish our logistics, to prepare us to launch a second assault against the vile Undead. We cannot give up now, even in the face of the Undead! We will liberate North America!

    Send our holy missionaries to spread the message of truth, freedom, and the Holy Washington to the Saberists that plauge our Democracy. Send the Washington Guard with them to ensure that the Saberists do not attempt to harm those who would spread the message.

    We will need to repopulate the Maryland area and reestablish its ruined cities, as well as the damaged administrative centers. Offer financial incentives to loyal Washingtonians to repopulate the state and rebuild its fallen cities.

    We will need to reestablish the United States Navy in order to ensure that the Undead are kept away from our shores. We shall raise several squadrons of vessels in order to be able to, in the future repel any attempts by Saberist Manx or vile Undead to assail our holy Union.

    Finally, the 202nd shall move to secure the island and allow our holy missionaries to spread the True Faith there, before preparing several airbases in order to launch new paradropping assaults into the vile Manx empire.

    5: unfortunate the forces not only failed to reinforce but are currently having a serious supply error... [the Bison cannot be used in the next roll]

    6: Saber will not be denied. [Saberists resistance by +1]

    13: repairs are going well. [+1 prestige]

    16: where will you seek to deploy? [the 501st will have +1 combat and can engage land, sea and air]



    20: the 501st is trapped in a giant Henry! [the 501st are now inside imprisoned in a mecha Henry. Unlike other mechs Henry does not suffer from the -5 to combat]

    This most wonderful player's rolls will be counted!

    3: the operation to reconquer Newfoundland ends with disaster and the leading noble leading the operation, Baron Thomas yn Erris, has been captured by the Unionist. [Unionist gain +1 prestige and have a captured Manx noble]

    11: Murmansk Oblast has been conquered! Praise the Emperor!

    13: Tasmania is now Manx! [+1 prestige for Mann]

    13: mild measures installed. [+1 to covert defence for Project Wardrobe]

    We must train new missionaries to spread and evangelize the word of the Holy Washington, teaching them the Faith's doctrines and reinforcing their zeal will surely allow them to convert the Saberists back into the light of Washington.

    Clearly, the death of the Manx emperor is a sign from the Holy Washington that the end of the vile Manx autocrats is imminent. Their false Saber will not protect them, for she does not exist - only Washington does, standing as the eternal guard of our Republic against those who would undermine it! Redouble our efforts to convert those unfortunate souls who still cling to Saber.

    The Bisons have failed dramatically in their campaigns and their logistical recuperation - the officers in charge of said regiment must be dismissed and new, more competent and faithful officers put in their place.

    In addition, the enemies of the Republic seem to be multiplying, and the burden of these wars on our economy is straining it. Measures must be taken to ensure that our economy can continue to sustain our nation as well as our military-industrial complex with investments into new industries concentrated around the rebuilding area of Maryland. These cleared areas will be the beating heart of a new industrial base for our nation.

    We shall send our new navy forth to deal with our enemies - the First and Second Washington Fleets will be sent forth to sink the Vampire vessels at sea, and the First Athena shall harass the coast of New York, raiding Vampire bases and liberating and escorting those under the Vampiric thumb.

    We shall once again try to establish a new science department in order to research a way to better combat the Vampires - they seem to be becoming more and more powerful on the land, and so they must be stopped before much longer.

    Finally, the Washington Guard will remain around our Capital, its engineering detachments building temples and facilities for the Holy Washington...

    and the 202nd will organize the local resistance forces that assisted their invasion into a National Guard unit that will protect Newfoundland from any further Manx incursions as they make ready to take the fight to Canada!

    Elections are coming soon for our holy Democracy, and a new President may soon come to power. Surveys must be completed, the electorate educated on the potential candidates, and the balloting areas secured so that all those who accept the Holy Washington, no matter their origin, race, or gender, will be able to vote for the new President of the Union.

    Raise the Jolly Roger and give the US navy or whatever they call themselves a spanking and make their ships and crew mine. They’ll be shivering their timbers whenever they hear the name Luther Harkonen from now on

    Call the rotting leviathans from the deep to lay assault to the shores of our enemies

    No self respecting pirate be sailing the seas without rum, assault the Caribbeas for their delicious rum

    We’re the Vampire Coast what the hell are we doing with land that isn’t a coast! Abandon positions of everything outside of the city of New York and establish control over the coast of the Northeast. Massachusetts will bow to us!

    Hah! See!? Those unholy devils use their faith in Saber as a lie in order to hold up their empire, as a mystery cult to cover up their true misbelief in false heathen idols! The Holy Washington will stand above all others, in the end! george-washington-9524786-1-402.jpg
