    What's this? :eek: Breaking away from the Motherland? Is your personal drive for a throne so intense that you would seek to form your own nation? You were welcomed back into the mightiest nation in the known world...and yet you cast us away, like an old shoe.

    So be it, young Tasius. You shall live and learn. I shall not trample you under foot (for now). Atrouia shall exist inside Fanatica as its own entity. You have borders now. Make sure any troops you raise stay well within them.

    Tsk, Tsk. Now I fully understand why they call you Tasius the Bold.

    You see, I am the despot. You took over in a kind of coup d'etat, while never even attempting to contact me or search for me. That is not the conduct of a gentleman, Atrouia is the result of your greed.

    Thomas Anderson approaches the hut of the Despot.
    Oh noble Diutius. I am but a poor man, but I am a man with skills. Please, I come with a request. There are now many nations of Fanatican birth that are no longer part of mother Fanatica. Permit me to serve as your ambassador to these nations. I ask for nothing in return, other then perhaps a piece of land adjacent to my home with the DiSaaMuels. I ask not for a title or a promotion, just to serve my despot.
    As Thomas is making his plea, Smith DiSaaMuel aproaches him
    Smith: Ah, Mr. Anderson. Mother is looking for you. Why are you bothering approaching the great Diutius. He does not have time for commoners like you. Its survival of the fitests. This is our time. Our society. To you, it is soley "Me, me, me, me" Well you know what? Me too! We all have urges to fufil. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some laps to run.


    (OCC- This is my Commoner. Eventually, he and Smith DiSaaMuel will get on eachothers nerves.)
    (Also- Managed to fit Matrix lines in. Woohoo!)

    Character: Sparticus Atticus

    Sparticus approaches the Despot peacefully and with a look of admiration in his otherwise cold, near-black eyes. His intentions are non-violent, but he carries his 12-inch iron dagger under his cloak where he reach it at a moment's notice.

    Sparticus: Oh Great and Glorious Emperor Lifespanius, I approach ye today as one of your common citizens who wishes to better serve his lord and liege. I beseach of you that you grant me a small parcel of land upon which I can build an army to serve you, my King and Almighty. In return I will pledge to you allegiance against the hostile rebel provinces that are appearing in defiance of your devine right to rule. I pledge to use any troops I raise in defense of King and Country against all invaders, foreign and domestic, who might His or Its undoing. Please, sire, I am but a peasant, but one skilled in the arts of war. I am a born leader of men. I beg it, please let me serve you, my lord.

    Anderson: My lord, I beg of you. Now is the time for Diplomacy. My adopted sister and I (Fortuna) are willing to serve as intermeidaries between you and all others. My adopted brother, though... He may be a different story. He seems to be a renegade. Who knows?

    @Sparticus Atticus - Had I known of your existance, I would have granted you a land tile and a legion. I respect your fighting ability and welcome your support. But...

    All of this is meaningless, as the conflict manager has not granted you any troops. The Despot is the only one who can afford troops at this point in time, so you are not able to take a city. You can claim your own Nation, but it is meaningless also. I could walk in with tropps and take it away.

    Please stop this foolishness until we get word from from the appropriate managers.

    OOC: Cyc, I will gladly wait for word from the proper Manager. However....

    IC:
    M'lord, if I cannot yet raise troops to serve you, than let my land parcel exist in name only, and let me serve you with word and deed until the time that I can raise a sword to fight for my Emperor.

    All Land Grants have been revoked as of this moment. All Nobility promotions given by me are revoked as of this moment. Any promotions received from other Despots may stay, but you still lose your Land Grant. Land Tiles given to Helena and Tasius will remain theirs. These are to be the only exceptions.

    Signed,
    The Despot

    [OOC: i still have to check if im still alive, if not im talking as bellona here :)]

    the lands i own and controll have troops as royal guard. they will protect the capitol, the family and all things we own.
    at this moment of time, i am only giving you moral support and will stay in the background of the process. Of course you will have my good words with you on your way to crush the rebels and my pledge to stand behind you. I will keep your back clean to allow you a grand fight, as i know you have enough troops and abilities.
