    A little diplomancy.

    From: The Republic of New Albion (Federationists)
    To: The Australian Confederation


    We earnestly seek your intervention in restoring the light of liberty to our land.

    From: The Republic of New Albion (Directorate)
    To: The Kingdom of Arcadia


    We seek the protection and the assistance of the Arcadian Crown in crushing this vile rebellion!

    From: The Uighur Khanate
    To: Bastard Emperor Wanglong


    Rot in hell you cheating ass.

    From: The Malla Empire
    To: The Rajput Empire, The Empire of Bengal


    We submit to your hegemony both, and will pay a rich tithe of gold to show our homage to your twin majesties. Now, will you please leave us in peace to thank Lord Shiva for sparing his sword arm from our ruination?

    ---

    I give you the first remotely on-time update I've possibly ever written. Even so, stats are not done, because I have other real-life responsibilities/am lazy/am not das. :p They will be up by WedNESday optimistically.

    I'm sure that there are errors, omissions, and other problems. I'm not perfect. But I'll do what I can to correct them tomorrow. Enjoy. :D

    Great update, though it cuts off on the last section about Egypt.

    "On the other hand, Egypt has modernized her engineering industry, become the world leader in production of telekinetic wire, and has begun to bring her..."

    OOC: So what exactly is shown about our stories? :mischief:

    IC:

    To: The Empire of Bengal
    From: The Grand Principality of Chernigov


    We apologize for our inability to transfer to you the relevant colonial territory we had previously agreed upon.

    To: The Sultanate of Hyperabad
    From: The Grand Principality of Chernigov


    While your negotiation tactics are certainly unorthodox, they are also extremely effective. The Grand Duke and the Reichstag hopes that the Nizam will follow his word. We shall politely await the final end of our transaction.

    To: The Kingdom of Tver
    From: The Grand Principality of Chernigov


    The Grand Duke kindly remarks to his counterpart in Tver that the ruler of Chernigov needs not a magnificent title, like the "Imperator" that the King of Tver now seems to be enjoying. To be the Grand Duke of Chernigov, and live and work for the betterment of his People and State is more than enough. We are but a simple people, skilled in the arts of peace.

    No orders, they're all yours...good luck.

    Story bonuses I'm doing with stats and casualties, Northern-style. It makes more sense that way. But Chernigov getting an unexpected QoL boost was part of it. :p

    In part, and also due in part to the success of your legislation, which succeeded because you wrote a story about it.

    The Manchu betrayed you? This is not surprising, as treachery is the only thing they know. I will be willy to over look your attacks into China AND pay you handsomely for your assistance against the Manchu. They are at their breaking point, and ever little push brings them closer to falling over. We are also willing to allow the Uigher people to seize some of the Qing lands for themselves if they so please. It seems only right that the those whom get betrayed should get their revenge.

    To: Wanglong The Pretender
    From: Emperor Nancheng

    Damn you a thousand times over! Must I come to Beijing with a club and smack you over the head with it personally? you must realise now that things are going sour for your empire. In only a year I have almost taken my rightful seat in Beijing. And what have you done? Thrown farmers at my armies? Sicked your uncivilized brothers upon the Han people? I believe it is time to end this war right now.

    P.S. Damn Japanese, that's one thing we can agree on, right? Anyways, go die and stuff.

    OOC: Awesome update! I'll probably need to read it in more detail tommorow morning though.

    The Australian Confederation wishes to remind you of your commitment spoken to us in good faith and under the auspices of God to not interfere within the New Albion Republic.

    As you may know Bullworth is a bully and nothing more, he compromised both the political system and the integrity of his self and has raised an army to oppress the natural born people of New Albion. And it is of the opinion of this administration that such a person is dangerous for the stability of the region and as needs must, his private army will be disbanded with the assistance of the Australian Confederation and normal political discourse shall be restored.

    EDIT: The update music is nice :D

    We would like to ensure peace between our borders with a Non-Aggression Pact to be renewed in 10 years time, if you so wish it. We hope that this may be the first step to a peaceful existence between our two peoples who for so long have been at odds. We would like to also state that we would be interested in other opportunities of cooperation should you feel such things would benefit both our nations, however we shall not feel slighted if you decline.

    King Mikhail has maintained the title of velikoye kniazhestvo for some time. We have added no new titles, taken no new honors, beyond those accorded naturally by our governance of the Kingdom of Tver. However, if the Swedes choose to translate it as "Imperator", we would not insult them by refusing to acknowledge it while we enjoy their hospitality in Stockholm.

    From the Kingdom of Tver
    To the Kingdom of Sweden

    The Tsar is concerned that you may take our arrival at the funeral of your noble predecessor, Gustav, as a threat. On the contrary, the honor guard and his personal appearance was meant to be a sign of respect for the late monarch, who did much to maintain the peace between Sweden and Tver. We wish you all success in your reign, despite certain agreements and treaties that could be seen as directed against our peaceful state.

    From the Kingdom of Tver
    To the Khanate of the Golden Horde

    While we would not normally meddle in the internal affairs of another nation, the Tsar is concerned that recent actions being taken by your government may effect Tverian entrepeneurs and businessmen in your nation. It would be most agreeable if private discussions could be held concerning this.

    We wish to reassure you that the treaty signed between Our nation and that of the German Emperor is merely ment to ensure peace and stability in the Baltic Sea. Sweden has no wish for conflict with Tver.
