    (1915-2/2): Reino de España Spanish ministers race across the peninsula as they determine different issues and their resolutions. The mobilization of the Spanish forces have grown to be an expansive effort for the whole country. The conscription of so many tens of thousands of men has caused several industries to look over their production methods. With less men able to work within the factories of Spain, factory managers and owners look to stabilize their factory outputs. Spanish men and women are seen waving along those who enlist within the military as they make their ways in small packs to recruitment offices. News surges throughout the country as an all women medical nursing corp is proposed to the Spanish Congress. One quote by Alvaro De Figueroa is cited by many women suffrage groups as saying, “Women are not the pawns of war and should not be the propagators of it, instead, I believe an all women medical corp would allow women to continue their jobs as natural born mothers to help relieve men in the wounds that they may occur in any military movement. Their position is that of the caretaker, determined by God himself. We should accept their natural talents to soothe men’s souls and let them help our brave soldiers.” The Spanish National Anthem sounds as men are given their unit orders after they graduate from recruit training and their specialized military occupational schooling. Thousands of men graduate every week from their schooling in the military and are sent to their different units. New information seen from the battlefields of Europe are integrated into the military as officers and senior enlisted are drilled to use these new techniques. Mock battles are practiced in the Western Sahara colony with the Army Groups rotating as each officer and enlisted is guided on how modern war is enacted. Actions Taken: The Spanish Congress is proposed by Alvaro De Figueroa, the Prime Minister, on allowing women to serve in medical roles for the military. The generally liberal leaning party would also attempt to open this up in the future to allow women equal rights in voting. Ideas seen from the battlefields on implementation of equipment, the benefits of offense and defense, and movement of troops is incorporated into battle doctrines. For now it is up to the officers to learn how to use it. The entire military is doing mock battle drills with training in Spain and the Western Sahara region to flesh out the general failings of the military and work on improving the efficiency of the army. Spain redacts old laws persecuting everyone but muslims wishing for those who are fleeing the Great War to come seek homes in Spain.

    (1915-1/2): Reino de España Spaniards wave flags all across the country, conscription of the army has been declared unanimously by the government, Spain is mobilizing. The neutral country builds a protective shell of troops against possible military actions by her neighbors. Alfonso XIII declares in a congressional meeting, “No foreign army shall ever conquer Spain! Men serve your country and join me! Protect Iberia!” Many Spanish soldiers are seen exchanging their issued standard uniform of red trousers and blue dress coat for a newly designed brown drab uniform. This command comes from the internal military council determining the resource fluctuation that would occur with importing dyes and materials not made in Spain. The blue dress uniform as it is called, is declared to be in use during formal events and is not authorized to be used in combat. “Your Majesty, it would take time to provide this new uniform to the military,” spoke General Hijuero. Alfonso stroked his shaved chin, “Yes, but we have also neglected the army for several decades, the issue of exchanging this uniform should be no issue,” replied the king. Nodding respectively, the general continued, “This is true my King, but how are we to gain the uniforms to cloth every man? If we are to establish a million man army, how are we to effectively cloth each man?” “Is the history of industry not that of the textile manufacturer? The ability to cloth every man should be no issue, as men are trained, they should receive their equipment. General, to conscript does not mean 1 million men will suddenly be in the military and to this, each man will be equipped as they enter and finish training. We are not reinventing the wheel, we are only having it mass produced. We have the industry, submit the papers and the men will have what they need.” Actions Taken: Conscription of the army, increasing the military to 1 million men by the by January 1916. (Mobilization) Blue Dress Uniform is written into the military codex of rules and regulations to not be fit for combat and is exchanged for a new ‘Service’ uniform consisting of brown clothing that is mass produced in Spain. In exchange of the loss of flash, a swagger stick is implemented and provided to all officers and non- commissioned officers. The Blue Dress uniform is designated as a formal attire clothing.

    (1914-2/2): Reino de España Spanish observers watch from distant fields the chaos that occurs during the first few months of invasions across Europe. Spain had talks with England and had initially denied joining in on the war on either side due to being ill prepared for the combat. These observers confirmed the decision. Thousands of French were dead across their own lands, Belgium had been invaded and occupied in only a few weeks and now the Balkans were a mess with tens of thousands captured or dead across Entente and Central Power sides. With periscopes Spanish reporters document the incidences of massive carnage unlike what has ever been seen. Alfonso, nor Congress, have decided to censor these reporters gaining recounts from the battlefields. Generals across the board in Spain request for a larger land based military, petitioning for an increase of 100,000 more men to be added to the military by the end of 1915. Booms of artillery are heard across Western Sahara, the military is restructuring its army into functional modular units encompassing multiple weapon elements and practicing with the new weapons delivered by Britain. The 1st Army is founded consisting of Army Corp Poder de España (23040) and Army Corp Escudo de España (23040). The Lee Enfield rifle is declared the standard infantry rifle of the military. Spanish contractors are asked to produce the weapon to the exact format as the law allows copy cat designs to be made when the manufacturer does not produce the item in the nation. A young Spaniard named Issac Kronos, a moderate politician and city planner by trade, proposes an idea within Madrid’s City Council. Ildefons Cerda, several decades ago had created several books detailing how to develop a city’s railway systems and manage waterways to allow for transportation and proper city planning. In his book, Teoría de la Viabilidad Urbana y Reforma de la de Madrid ("Theory of Urban Roadspace and Reform of That of Madrid", 1861), he denotes how to structure a transit system to link major parts of the city together to provide easy access to all by rail, road, and waterway. Issac Kronos proposes to the Madrid council in a quote: “The land must be accessible to the men and women of this land, to trade, transport, and provide greater access to the resources of Madrid.” This idea catches the eye of politicians to the Spanish Congress who begin to look into the development of a national transit system of railroads. Actions Taken: Spanish war reporters and tacticians begin to observe the war and the methods used to conduct warfare. This information is relayed back to Spanish generals who are counseled on the new forms of warfare being conducted. The attempt to recruit another 100,000 men into the army is started. Army restructuring is implemented based on the modern army model. Army Corp (23040) -Division A, B, C (7680) --1st, 2nd Brigade (2560) ---Battalion 1, 2, 3, 4 (640) -----Company A, B, C (160) --------Platoon 1, 2, 3, 4 (40) -----Company Weapons (160) --------Platoon 1, 2, 3, 4 (40) -Cavalry Brigade (2560) Expeditionary 1st Army Army Corp Madre de España (23040) Army Corp Reconquista de España (23040) 1st Army Army Corp Poder de España (23040) Army Corp Escudo de España (23040) 2nd Army Army Corp Fuerza de Expedicion (23040) Army Corp Roca Sagrada (23040) 3rd Army Army Corp Tierra de Hombres (23040) Army Corp Rex de Afrika (23040) Reserved Capital Force of Madrid Army Corp Proteger (16680) The 1st Army consisting of Army Corp Poder de España (23040) and Army Corp Escudo de España (23040) Expeditionary 1st Army consisting of Army Corp Madre de España (23040) and Army Corp Reconquista de España (23040) and are sent to Western Sahara to train on modern warfare. Plans for a national railway system are drawn up starting in Madrid and spreading outward to every major town. The plan starts with connecting all of the railway systems in Madrid by December 1915. The expansion to every major city would finish by December of 1918.

    Why are reasons for denial of things not posted to applications and appeals? This allows someone closure on why they were not approved/selected and can work for improvement.

  6. Preface to the Siege of Kal’Urguan The Battle of Kal’Urguan was fought between the Ironborn army of Emperor Thorngar, the Lord of Ironborn controlled Kal’Urguan, and a dwarven confederation army under the dwarf leader King Simpa, First of his name,beginning the Remnant conquest of Kal’Urguan. Approximately there were 60,000 dwarven soldiers for Emperor Thorngar and about 80,000 for King Simpa. The Ironborn army was composed almost entirely of archers and had few infantry, whereas only about half of the invading force under Simpa was dwarven infantry, the rest were archers, general medical staff, observers, and multi-racial mercenaries. Thorngar tried to surprise Simpa with an assassination attempt by Blackhand agents, but double agent scouts found the agent stopping the attempt. Thorngar seeing his realm unable to stop the combined armies of the Remnant after the failed assassination, stationed his force in the capital of Kal’Urguan as a full garrison. When Simpa received the report of Thorngar’s consolidation, he marched from city to city gathering supplies from weakly held Ironborn towns on a path to Kal’Urguan, the Fatherland, to confront the Emperor. When the two armies finally matched, Simpa held his sword up to Thorngar who watched from attop open towers. Each shouted curses toward one another, their voices unable to be heard amongst the thousands of roaring dwarves. Duel of Gotrek Starbreaker and Hekaetar, Champion of Thorngar Ironborn Shortly before entering the throne room with his personal guard of Gotrek Starbreaker, Tungdil Goldhand, and Urir Ireheart, Simpa discussed his chances of defeating Thorngar with his prized golemancer, Gotrek. “Meh lord, Ye must let meh first defeat t’eir champion. If ye face t’is so called Champion of T’orngar, ye will not ‘ave t’e strength to fight t’eir false emperor,” spoke Gotrek to Simpa. The king nodded, “I do not want to see ye die out t’ere, no Ironborn will show ye mercy. If ye let yer guard down for ah moment, ‘e will kill ye outright. Ye understand t’is meh friend?” Gotrek only nodded before he opened the throne room doors. While the Remnant dwarves discussed their options, Thorngar began speaking with his champion, Hekaetar, a member of a lesser branch to the Ironborn clan. Several high ranking commanders of Thorngar arrived into the throneroom shortly thereafter taking out Ironborn relics from the room as they prepared for the final fight. “Much depends on you Thorngar, if we are to purify the unholy in Khorvads name we must first crush their champion, then their leader...” Thorngar grabbed his champion for an embrace, before taking his place upon the throne. Hekaetar stood between the entrance of the throne room and his emperor. The two champions eyed each other up, Gotrek’s grip tightened on his warhammer, the runes along his armour and weapon glowed slightly brighter as he saw the banners of Khorvad high where the Brathmordakin should have been. Gotrek then looked to Hekaetar, the runes dotted amongst the Ironborn made armor and along his axe and shield, Gotrek recognized the rune of Dungrimm along the shield and the axe, a rune of frost. His anger would intensify as he looked upon the runes of the Brathmordakin etched into the weapons of the unholy. Few dwarves were present, many were off in separate chambers securing the palace grounds and fought in small pockets. To those present the air tensed as both parties lay quiet, eager to see the two champions fight for the sake of their monarch. Before the fight, Gotrek demanded Hekaetar confess to yielding readying himself into a defensive stance. Hekaetar confident in his abilities ignored the warning and charged at Gotrek landing several skillful attacks on Gotrek despite his attempts at blocking them, seemingly toying with the cave dwarf. He knocked Gotrek to the ground and landed a near-fatal blow on his chest the rune of frost upon the axe freezing the armor where it was hit and yet Gotreks armour held. Hekaetar then screamed at Gotrek in an ironic manner for him to yield instead, hoping the cave dwarf would admit defeat before he slayed him in front of both rulers. Hekaetar stepped back from Gotrek allowing the cave dwarf to stand up, clearly Hekaetar wasn’t done toying with him. The Remnant dwarves began to lose faith as Gotrek stood up, clearly showing signs of doubt. The two circled each other for a moment before Hekaetar charged at Gotrek his shield in front and his axe over head. Gotrek got into another defensive stance lifting his hammer up to parry Hekaetar’s axe as it swooped down aiming for Gotreks head. Gotrek seeing the incoming strike blocked the blow but as his gaze focused on the axe, Hekaeter rammed his shield into the torso of Gotrek, causing the Starbreaker to step back. Hekaetar once again stepped back from Gotrek, antagonizing him, “T’is is t’e great Gotrek Starbreaker t’e famous warrior smit’? Who can spurt lava and fire from ‘is warhammeh and ah direct son of Urguan ‘imself? Hah!” Gotrek hearing these words hesitated, shaking his head of these doubts. ”Yer gods ‘ave abandoned ye Starbreaker.” Anger surged into Gotrek, he now wished for blood. With blood filled rage, Gotrek charged at Hekaetar, their weapons locking in combat yet again. Hekaetar bashed Gotrek in the torso with his shield but Gotreks armour prevailed as it absorbed the blow, allowing Gotrek to swing his warhammer, cracking several of the Ironborn’s ribs as it landed. The two backed off from the other, breathing heavily. Each was trying to recover faster than the other, but kept an eye open, they had wounds that would bring them down soon but Gotrek saw he had more. The Starbreaker Clan Father finally stopped, he cracked a smile as he watched the Ironborn Champion fly into a rage, charging at the weakened dwarf waiting for his death. As the eager champion went for one final swoop to end the life of Gotrek he left his guard open, and with a quick action,Gotrek ripped his warhammer around in one fatal blow knocking Hekaetar to the ground. Gotrek dropped his warhammer and lunged to strangle Hekaetar while confessing, “I confess, I confess to Yemekar I will defeat you and watch your king die.” his grip barely able to hold on tight as his vision blurred, “Don’t beh so sure cave dwarf…” The now dying Hekaetar would say as he motioned for Gotrek to look at his torso. For indeed a small dagger had been thrusted into Gotrek’s left side when he wasn’t looking, the runes on it capable of piercing Gotrek’s armor. Realizing the sharp pain further squeezing down onto his neck, Hekaetar desperately clung to life before he fell lifelessly to the ground, his golden yellow eyes empty. The Ironborn king slammed his fist onto the throne angered as his champion had failed him. He stood up from the throne, yelling at the Remnant dwarves to cease their rebellion and be granted a quick death. Gotrek with his vision blurry and with a sharp pain in his kidney collapses on the ground, King Simpa followed behind as he looked at the slightly conscious champion. King Simpa clenched his fists as he watched the angry king step off his throne, both their armours glowed bright with runes, his battle with Thorngar to begin.

    (1914-1/2): Reino de España As the Spanish Congress arrives into session, a girl hand Alfonso a flower a he enters the chamber. Four Spanish guards from the Royal Guard enter with Alfonso, he holds his hand backward escorting the Queen with him. Despite issues over their relationship that those close to the royal family would know, Alfonso seems to be putting effort into his marriage. The Queen sits down next to Alfonso, she seems to be wearing very few pieces of English dress and instead is clat in Spanish fashion. The King seems to only pay attention to few who speak, only talk to his wife in broken English and her speaking in extremely broken Spanish. A spark growing between them. A newly promoted lieutenant is asked to speak at the Congress as a personal report of his view of the military. Some medals glean his chest from won conflicts in the Sahara region. He coughs before speaking to the crowd of skeptics. “I was asked not by the people of Congress but by our king to speak my mind on the military.” Alfonso would stop focusing on his wife and begins to listen. “Through his reform of the officer corp, I, a commissioned officer from originally the ranks of the NCO, was able to implement the ideas I had seen in my enlisted career in my officer one. My men now eat better for one as I put them before myself, an issue before with many of our removed officers…” The officer continues on his speech glorifying Alfonso’s incite on the issues he corrected in the military. An open letter is sent to Germany and Britain, asking if either is able to provide goods or items to sway Spain into joining their ally groups. “To the great leaders of (Britain/Germany), Spain opens it’s harbors and hands to your country. An alliance during these times are sought between Spain and the powers of Europe. To the countries, Spain wishes to see what your country can provide to make it a lasting alliance.” Actions Taken: -Propaganda of the crown is continued to be spread, the title being spread of Alfonso as, “ Padre con una corona” (Father with a crown) -The open letter is sent to Germany and Britain -Continues financing the mining and foundry project -Grain silos are to be constructed in every town -Alfonso begins to put effort into his marriage for it to work better.
  8. I have seen and heard of several people within the golemancy community having non-lore accepted event golems and golem objects. Things like 'god cores', 'titan cores', golems that are 30 feet high to golems 500 feet high. Where are these things being documented? Why are gods giving descendents mecha-golems? Where is the lore being posted to support these god cores and titan cores? Just because it is an event does not mean it gets to be outside the realm of reality. If there IS lore for these creatures, why is it not being posted, if there IS NO lore for these creatures why are lore amendments not made for these golems? Why are nations and guilds being given these world breaking automatons without any backing or public documentation? I want Event Team more accountable to their creations since they are purposefully modifying lore in a lore breaking manner. In addition to this post, this is not even just golemancy, this is in general as well. ET are making events with items made by gods but nothing is provided to maintain their lore consistency. Items change base on different ETs whims. Example everyone should know about are the weapons of the four brothers. Everyone knows they exist but no lore posts. They change hands to whoever says they can get a named item first, there is no consistency. Another example is the Hammer of Ardol that Aengoth claims to have though he is inactive, no lore post besides a side piece on known artifacts saying it deactivates golems. No lore on why it was created or who created. Items/creatures should be documented that are lore breaking or are additions to lore so they can be tracked and their properties known. They should also be documented to stop an unsupported event by ET who are out of their limits. If an ET cannot make a post to justify why they are breaking lore with providing creatures like golems to players or providing objects to control other worldly creatures, or objects that are used in creating lore breaking items/creatures, then they need to downscale what they are doing and rethink their event. Not every event needs to be providing lore breaking items and creatures. It is totally possible to create an event using the HUNDREDS OF PAGES OF LORE that have been written without including providing objects made by gods into an event.

    (1913-2/2): Reino de España Talks arise as the different Spanish political parties begin to arrive into the Congressional Chambers. The focus of the morning bill being the development of the Spanish industrial sector. The bill titled “Spanish Internal Industrial Expansion and Production” is debated over by the politicians in muttered tones as the session comes to order. The first person to speak to the congressional gathering is King Alfonso, he eyes the crowd before beginning his speech. “Wealth!” he shouts suddenly. “Work!” he repeats in a shouting tone. “As a collective whole we have debated the economy for many years, but it is during this time we have a budget to expand an industrial economy. The other nations produce ships years beyond ours, they produce guns years beyond ours, they produce wealth beyond ours! To this I say this will change. The difference between Espana and Europe is not from our lack of drive in the Spaniard but the lack of motivation for the government to reinvest in her people. To the far north Britain has conquered Asia by being the first to expand their industry, to the north east Germany expands their navy to destroy all who threaten Europe, to the south France has claimed almost a third of Africa, and to the far east Japan ignites a flame unlocked by the Americans to conquer all their rivals. If we do not expand our industry we are doomed to fall to our neighbors, be it through peaceful strangulation or a great bloody war. You all have drawn up your own ideals of this bill. Now let it be passed or failed.” The king steps down from the stand, he would exit the room, allowing the peasants who believe they hold power to decide if they help their own countrymen or not. Actions -Begin building state owned mines -Begin building state owned foundries -Begin sending out positive propaganda about the crown
