  2. The Grand Principality of Rostukhov “And would a few new sets of pearls not do her justice, my dear? A few white furs, a shawl of velvet?” The winter of 866 passed as slowly as the grass grew, and nowhere could that droll tide be felt better than the Rostukhovic court. No real issues of note; no real changes. The Yithic Moss of recent discovery, while quite potent, was still moss, and the nobility could not be expected to wear glowing fungus. No, nothing was different in the winter of 866, save for gossip of wars to the East, of Aeton’s apparent rage, and of ill tides to the west of Wyom. The only, and very poor, respite Adrik II would have from his boredom would be spending money on clothing for his wife’s courtiers. Town Crier Vladimir Vasilyevich travels to Wyom, where he seeks new competition among the duelists there! A Commercial District is built in Rostukhov, and two more Dvoryane Farm-territories created. Two Heavy Manufacturing sites go up in Novohesk. Yithic Moss, as it is coined very originally by the Rostukhovic researchers, can have many shocking implications!!! They search for a means to mass produce it and the clothing that is made from it, so as to be able to give hundreds, or perhaps even thousands, of soldiers undershirts and skull caps of the stuff! Also to do with the new super-moss, Rostukhovic researchers seek a way to make it fire resistant! You know, because it’s...moss.

  3. The Grand Principality of Rostukhov “And one can only believe it so fair that the Prince Vesiliyevich has twice the inheritance of the Prince Prokofiev; do you not think so, my lord?” In the temperate climes of Ater, perhaps only Rostukhov could make itself feel so cold, for the torchlit bedroom covered in furs and steel held about it a certain chill as the Grand Princess spoke to her quiet husband. She had always exuded a certain control over the Grand Prince of Rostukhov, of a level unprecedented among spouses but especially so among the current courtiers of Adrik II; the man had about him a level of confidence not unlike narcissism, and it was only Katina’s advice that he took properly in hand. Here she asked on fairness in the Boyardom; for the Prince Prokofiev and Vesiliyevich shared the same bloodline on their mothers’ side, and in that grand old house dying, they were generally thought to be entitled to equal shares. The Prince Prokofiev, as all knew, was far more disciplined than his counterpart, but was also nothing if not bookish; in a contest of charisma, he lost by a hand-and-a-half. Perhaps that is why their shared third aunt willed the majority to Vesiliyevich; more likely it was because Prokofiev had, in a drunken state, insulted her at the last meeting of the Boyars’ Duma, and now she had wrought her revenge. Prokofiev, though, was the inner court’s darling, a prime choice for a military general and likely to be awarded one of the new keeps on the five-year docket, and so being slighted in such a way by such a woman was something Katina believed the Ademichevs could not abide (though the house in question rarely seemed to care about such matters, and it was likely more the Boyar Taneiew, her father, that had implanted such foolhardy ideas into the Grand Princess). And so another boring year was to pass in Rostukhov, with little but the court dealings and every-other-year famine crises to give Adrik II respite from lazing about. Town Crier Vladimir Vasilyevich challenges all across Rostukhov to friendly bouts, that he may grow in dueling prowess! A Commercial District is built in Rostukhov, and two more Dvoryane Farm-territories created. A crisis in the hinterlands! A slew of worried Dvoryanin and lesser Knyazes petition the Ademichev court for new conquests, as the amount of arable territory in Rostukhov reaches a breaking point. Adrik II approves; two new Royal Mines are to be opened in preparation for two heavy metalworks. If the timetables are correct, they will be able to begin expansion in time before a famine begins. The “””strange plant””” is potted and brought to the capital for research. The other two topics of note are heavy cavalry and, likely because of their population issue, the search for a way to build cheaper farms.

Discord Name; bickando Nation Name: Grand Principality of Rostukhov Government Type: Feudal Monarchy Magic Type: Scholar Spell 1: Predusmotritel – Farsight – Can see events happening elsewhere in Ater as they occur. Spell 2: Istinnoye Zrenniye – True Sight – Can see through inhibitory weather or other such circumstances. T2 Spell: Predvideniye – Future Sight – Can see into the future. Leader: Adrik II Vasilyevich Ademichev History/Culture: The Grand Principality of Rostukhov’s origins can most definitively be traced to the Atemic invasion of the Vestvelt, under which Nikolai I was appointed command of Rostukhov and its surroundings as an imperial administrator and, some would note, little more than a puppet. A lesser princeling of the Vestvelt, his marriage with an Atemic princess of minor importance gave him the self-confidence to declare his house ‘of Atem’ – the Ademichev dynasty thus was born. Under the Atemic yoke, Rostukhov was able to slowly integrate its neighboring principalities, largely due to Atemic favor and even more largely due to Atemic indifference towards this little-known border province of their sprawling empire. This began as early as Nikolai I – ten years after entering his post, the Rostukhovics seized Krovna and the Ademichevs secured a marriage with the Popoyevs of Protsk. For the loyalty of the Rostukhovic population (or perhaps for their ability to pay taxes on time), they were allowed the freedom to continue their rather pagan beliefs, worshipping icons of local heroes and taking pilgrimages to great tree-temples among other things. While the hardline princes of old attacked the morality of assisting their conquerors, the Ademichevs happily assisted the Atemic Empire in collecting dues from its vassal states, sent soldiers to its wars, and raised no quarrel with the demands of the capital. This gave a level of precedence above that of their neighbors, while also making them far and away the richest single family in the Atemic Vestvelt. It was under Vasili II, though, that the Grand Principality was truly consolidated, and its place in history confirmed. Even as the Ademichevs assisted their Atemic overlords, they kept watch for a time in which they could claim for themselves a position of real power. They were a grand regional power, after all, and was the capital not a continent away? When the Empire began to crumble, Vasili raised a grand host and sacked the local Atemic fortress, claiming it as his own. Rostukhov as an independent state had been born. Intensely feudal, the Grand Principality has long held serfdom in such esteem that it is considered the only natural state of being for the masses. The connection of a person with the land they live upon has deep religious implications as well; their local temple might host a shrine to their collective ancestry, the icons of their heroes and saints. The only movement of such serfs is in marriage ceremonies, where one village will, in essence, market its brides to others in nearby regions, and indeed even those do not involve moving great distances. The vast majority of serfs, meaning in practice the utter majority of Rostukhovic citizenry, will have never traveled more than two days’ carriage ride from their village of birth. Their only contact with the outside world is with their dvoryanin, the landed nobility that would have ruled over their sets of villages for as long as the village elders can remember, and treated as family and just leadership in their stays. Indeed, only the knyaz, the level of nobility above the dvoryane, would be world-wise in the Rostukhovic countryside, to the point where even the existence of the ocean is a myth among the lesser folk. In Rostukhov’s capital, the Ademichevs have built magnificent palaces and stunning architecture otherwise, likely to flaunt their predominance over the region (though, at this point in history, it is more a lack of possible opponents). They have invested heavily into research institutions and encouraging elan among the many levels of nobility, and it seems they seek only to cement their control over the Atemic Vestvelt. If you didn’t get it by this point, Rostukhov is Russian. Groups or places of interest: Rostukhov [Capital] – The glittering jewel of post-Imperial Vestvelt, the city of Rostukhov was built up originally by the Atemic Empire and later from the coffers of the Ademichevs themselves. While surprisingly lacking in economic institutions, there lies here a frightening amount of military compounds and research groups. The Boyars – The Greater Nobility of the Grand Principality, who would generally control a greater province, and have under their command two Knyazes. Forming the central powerhouse within Rostukhov outside of the royal house itself, the boyars used to run completely rampant in Rostukhov with little issue. Of late, however, their power and prestige has come to depend more on service to the state and family history, as the percent of taxes going to the state from the lands they control has increased. The Druzhina – Generally the advisory council to boyars or to the Grand Prince, the Druzhina are important primarily because of their overt influence over the direction of research within the country. They have gained even further importance in recent years because of the shift in income towards the crown. The Knyazes – The Middle Nobility of the Grand Principality, who would generally control a lesser province or parts of a greater province, and have under their command ten or more dvoryanin families. The Dvoryanin – The Lesser Nobility of the Grand Principality, which, quite frankly, are in such abundance that in smaller countries they could account for the full population of their nobility with much to spare. The lowest ranking dvoryane might rule over three or four villages, and could know their subjects by name. These would generally live among their subjects for large periods of the year, and similarly make up the bulk of the Pomestnoye Voysko, or the Landed Army. Key Figures (3 people with points): Adrik II Vasilyevich Ademichev – The Grand Prince of Rostukhov, well-known to be a heartless egomaniac with nothing in mind but the relentless expansion of his burgeoning empire. The richest family in the Atemic Vestvelt has finally found a use for their money, it seems. Leadership: 8 Martial: 1 [Base] Charisma: 4 Katina Feofilovna – The Grand Princess of Rostukhov, in whose image many statues have been erected in Rostukhov. Funnily enough, even those of the Knyaz rank have rarely seen her in person. Martial: 1 [Base] Charisma: 12 Vladimir Vasilyevich Ademichev – The Prince of Prostolya, and younger brother of Adrik. Never before has such a duel fanatic been seen in Rostukhov. It is so prevalent, in fact, that he is rarely in his home court, instead touring the courts of the kyazes and boyars searching for possible opponents. Martial: 12 [11+Base] Agility: 1 Point Distribution: 5 Loyalty 6 Mil 10 Size 10 Tech Nat Idea: Relentless Push West | Keeps cost 5.000 G. Unique Units (3): Pomestnoye Voysko – The Landed Army is an incredibly well-armored set of knights meant for, well, charging at the enemy. Made up almost purely of Dvoryanin, they serve as the first, and most integral, part of Rostukhov’s combined forces. Armed with two lances, a shield, and a sword, they are purpose-built for fighting other cavalry and non-pike infantry. Luchniki – Part two in Rostukhov’s three-part plan to dominate the battlefield, the Luchniki are unique in their training rather than their simple equipment of a longbow, an arming sword, and cloth armor. In the Rostukhov countryside, villages are allowed to apply for a voyennoye razresheniye – a military permit – which allows them to pay quarter taxes if they train under supervision eight hours weekly in the longbow. While deadly alone, their true strength comes in their volleys, used to break up particularly closed-in formations – like the pike square, which is the bane of their cavalry. Kopeyshchik – The third and final part of the trilogy, the Kopeyschick is a disciplined formation of pikemen meant to move in close, standardized squares. While on the move, the pike is carried vertically. However, the troops were drilled to be able to point their pikes in any direction while stationary, with the men in the front of the formation kneeling to allow the men in the center or back to point their pikes over their heads. While stationary, the staff of each pike could be butted against the ground, giving it resistance against attack. These squares are then combined to create battle lines where appropriate, and indeed this often happens, as the Kopeyshchik is the core to any Rostukhovic army. The pike square is most formidable when fighting disorganized infantry or defending against an enemy cavalry charge. Starting Location: What is my Favorite color?: You’re a racist, you know that?

The Storm Rifle, as it is very poorly named, is to be its name. 30 Jan. | With rising world tensions, the Ministry of Commerce approves a massive military budget of almost 300.000 ABM – including a rather large sum to Erdemir Industries, for an undisclosed shipment in return. 4 Feb. | Perhaps due to the world around it exploding, Bellica makes little national investment into Briartown for the year. Instead, the movie studios independently put out a few films that mostly talk about better times – the era before the Great War, that type of thing, as if to say ‘Bellica doesn't want war!’. At the same time, Bellican troops move to man the borders, and garrison forces in Bellican Zapor-Vachaus and Bellican Azhon grow restless as they are beefed up by ever-more reinforcements from the homeland. -+- OFFICIAL REPORT OF THE NATIONAL MINISTRY OF THE INTERIOR -+- Approx.

The Saryn race is united in its State – a sweeping peace and planetary reform as created by the strongest and wisest of their race. An eon ago, their peoples looked outwards to the stars and created for themselves an empire. Solot’dohol was joined by a young Dandaaril Loor, and then a younger Triat Fangh, and thusly the Saryn had become masters of the cosmos. They looked past their borders, towards the center of the galaxy, then swept it across the empty space that surrounded their cluster of stars. Everywhere, there was nothing. In the habitable planets they had come across, there was only primitive life, or worse, sweeping plains of nothing. Soon they began to believe that was all there was to the galaxy. Perhaps, they thought, that was all there was to the universe. And so they stopped, and for a thousand years the Saryn lived in decadent complacency, served well by their rigidly structured society and peaceful nature. Their empire dwindled and collapsed as all do, but their Gaian homeworlds sat clean, perfected by a thousand generations. Infrastructure, too, dwindled, and still nothing needed to be done. Life was good on their ancient triad of planets, after all, good enough for an eon more. But the State is made imperfect through its peoples’ ambitions, and animals must eat.

Briartown Luxe is a story about a woman that loved a struggling actor – a woman that, when that actor became rich and famous, was abandoned. She then embarks upon a redemption arc, the culmination of which is her rise to stardom! A classic Briartown ending, really. 23 Feb. | A metric ton of military spending, and a few civilian industry districts in Briartown. 3 March | A huge military parade is held in Bellican Azhon, celebrating the fifth year of their overlordship there – and reminding both Azhon and the world that Bellica has maintained a sizable military presence in the colonies. Many of the warrior clans – who, by now, have hopefully largely been pacified through bribes or through kind colonial policy - are invited to participate, though. 5 Apr. | Two B-1 Oberlufts are sent on scouting missions.

  14. The Kingdom of Bellica as it was the Year of Our Lord, 1895 -+- YEAR IN REVIEW, 1895 -+- 19 Jan. | The other movie out of Briartown this year, given a massive budget of 20.000, is called LAST MAN STANDING, and details the legendary defense of Lt. Colonel Kedem Har-Zahav at Karaman. It is a three hour long thriller, with suspenseful long-shots of individual soldiers, and is the tale of the fifty thousand sons, brothers, and fathers of the Carnelian I Corps, and the rear guard left behind under Har-Zahav to defend the city. It is even more dramatized than the real life occasion, though claims it is a completely true story. 21 Jan. | Miscellaneous investments occur in the civilian and military sectors. 3 Feb. | 16.500 ABM is sent to Valdek, and 11.000 ABM to the Empire of Syullin. 20.000 is sent to Modevia. 5 Mar. | Moso Grandisi is announced as the Bellican entrant to the Tierra Rojan Air Race, and 2.000 is fronted as the entry fee. 3 Oct. | A horrifying movie is made, in the form of SUICIDE, a film about the horrifying suicide-bombing of the Venzeatic racer just to take out a party ship full of, well, partygoers! Given a budget of 5.000 ABM, it is an hour-and-a-half long movie of suspense, showing a beautiful, ornate party aboard a palace-like yacht, climaxing in the aforementioned suicide bombing, killing everyone aboard! The movie, in which there is among the Venzeatic crewmen of Valeryii only syphilitic, evil-looking men, and belowdecks bedrooms full of dogs to mate with, is quite obviously anti-Venzan! 4 Nov. | 10 AP and 1.500 ABM is spent on modernizing the equipment of loyal Azhoni warrior clans, improving their castles, and buying favor through military assistance. Disloyal elements, of course, are given nothing. New Research | Project S-9 -+- OFFICIAL REPORT OF THE NATIONAL MINISTRY OF THE INTERIOR -+- Approx. Population Growth Est.
