    Imperial Republic of Mankind Location: Novam Domum, lake solaris It was silent on Novam Domum except for the sounds of 4 men carrying a single coffin. It was a sad time for the IRM, the emperor who had guided them from earth to where they were now was gone. After many years and trials he had finally fallen, for many it was a celebration, for many more it was a tragedy. Now the IRM was more fractured than ever before with it's guardian no longer being there. Now here at a small lake outside of the Imperial city there were only 6 people, Lily Flowers Alexander Varellion's wife, his son Horus Varellion and 4 of his bodyguards that had not been present at the assassination. Then the 4 men lifted the coffin up for a final time and slowly put it down into the ground and would then slowly fill the hole back up with dirt. Meanwhilst the two family members stood there in complete silence with silent tears running from both their faces. The emperor is dead Location: Cadia, Imperial military academy "MOVE YOU BUNCH OF FANCY GIRLS MOVE !!!!" sergeant Cutter would shout as the group of recruits crawled through the wet, cold and muddied grounds of the training area. Recruit Timothy Faulks then quickly sped up his pace as he heaved in and out breathing loudly. This he would do with many others of his company crawling, heaving and walking across the hellish grounds called, the training track. One of the reasons why everyone avoided angering the sergeant was because the punishment would be 2 rounds around the track. And if you failed to complete that you would have to double it another day. No one has ever reached 16 rounds, because they either completed it in time or passed out from exhaustion at which point they were relieved of that particular punishment. Timothy then continued his approach pulling forward, under the barbed wire with the help of his trusty rifle and determination. Unknown to most to him or any other recruit was that a small drone was constantly recording their movements from the trees or other hiding spots accros the mountains. At this very moment two men were watching the footage from these drones on one screen and on another there were statistics of all the recruits of the company. These two men were the director of this facility, an old man of almost 60 years old and a younger though still an adult man of around 30 years old. The 30 year old man would be wearing a hood, a utility belt and a piece of Itoron-plating being spread around various parts of his body protecting him whilst a light, strong leathery material would be under the steel plates and the parts of the body that needed mobility providing further protection. The 60 year old man, director Hammer would speak then "What do you think of this new batch of recruits anyone who shows promise for joining your 'organization'." The director would say having slight distrust and distaste coming through his voice when he said the word organization. "Recruits Willis and Smith are strong and are specialists in surviving and combat, they have also taken up a leadership role in this group of men and have gotten a good amount of obedience from them, though there are some who remain stubborn in remaining independent but they will learn eventually through hard work." "Is it the recruit Timothy that you speak of now ?" the hooded would say in a low but clear voice commanding respect and authority through it. "Well I must say yes, the recruit is not very receptive to leadership and authority whilst being mostly average in combat and other exercises, he does not seem good soldier material, thinks too much for himself and question his superiors. This can not do in the military, this kind of attitude on the battlefield will make the difference between life or death but he will learn, everyone eventually does." The hooded man had an almost unreadable expression on his face before speaking in his usual voice with a steel undertone in it as always. "Mhm, I must agree on those points, he is not the best soldier and would not fit best in the military and he is extremely unlikely to ever raise above the normal rank and file soldier." "Like I said he is not the best soldier but we will pull him through, though he will remain average at best." the director would say with a slight tone of superiority and cockiness in it. "I must disagree." The director would look up clearly surprised. "Didn't you hear me talk, he is just average he is not a good soldier." "Exactly." The hooded man would say now with an edge in his voice. "Have you seen how he acts, what he is not strong in for physical strength he shows remarkable characteristics and if trained will have very good cunning, he can sneak like a shadow, he has a willingness to sacrifice himself for the greater good and he does not listen to his leaders whatever they say but to the content of what they say." The hooded man would glance towards the recruit Timothy. "An almost perfect candidate for the inquisition."

    Imperial Republic of Mankind Location: Planet of Cadia, the mountain region, military base Timothy Faulks an 18 year old, fresh out of high school with top marks and recomendations looked out from the viewport of the shuttle that was slowly descending down to a landing platform. All around him were large mountains, medium-sized mountain and huge mountains as far as the eye could see with some valleys in between. Right now the base he was in was on one of the medium-high mountains and even from here he could see a small road going down and up the mountain through the forests that grew on the mountainside. Then he readied himself as he saw the shuttle was about to reach the landing pad and packed what meager belongings he was allowed to take with him which had been heavily checked to make sure nothing was smuggled in. Then as the viewports opened he could immediately feel a rush of fresh-cold air which made him feel delighted, after taking a trip for 3 days staying only inside one of the frigates of the IRM with only pre-arranged oxygen being around. In some areas the heat was hard not to notice and the air always feeling a bit lacking. Back to the topic together with the air came a few snowflakes since the facility was on such a height it would always be snowy here. He felt like the cold would be a harsh teacher and companion in the time here. Seconds after the hatch opened he was pushed out by the other recruits and were forced to line up by the sergeant who had led them down here. Soon a few minutes later a regal and proud looking man walked down towards the landing pad from the facility. Whilst he had an aura of strength around him as well as some old kind of wisdom and experience. Something Timothy could not fail to notice about the man was the hair that was starting to grey as well as wrinkles on his skin indicating that the man was rather old. He was acompanied by a man who looked a bit younger as well as a bit more rugged and had a large noticable scar on his face which looked like it had only gotten there a few years ago. And whilst the regal man had a kind attitude aroundn him his companion seemed a bit more brutal and hardy, though the former could be because of the age difference. Then the regal looking man began to speak with a strong voice that held a strong aura of leadership in them which almost subconciously forced you to pay attention to him. "I am Hanmar Jaliks the director of the Cadia military academy. This academy has seen fine men go through here and I have trained fine men since before the existence of the Imperial Republic and I can make of anyone fine men no matter the background. Be it some poshy aristocratic kid or former scum from the worst kinds of households. All of them came here all diverse from all background and left here as one, one unit that would die for each other if it came to it. I believe I can make fine men of all of you but in the end you are the ones that make this happen. You may curse this facility you may wish that you had never gone here and may wish for the agony to end during your training but in the end it will be worth it." He would then point to his companion "This is Sergeant Hammer, he will supervise your training and be your superior whilst you are here, disobey him or any of his commands and he will choose your punishment. And whilst he is fair and does not prejuidice anyone it is just that. Everyone will get the same kind of punishement no matter who you are and for any mistake one of you makes you will all feel the consequences. Thus I wish you all a good stay at this academy, Ave imperatoria rem. He would then walk away leaving only sergeant hammer behind and everyone remained silent waiting for the sergeant. He got a sneer and spoke to the men "What are you doing here just standing pack your stuff and follow me to give you fine and dandy ladies a tour of this little palace." The tone of the sergeant was a bit demeaning and frustrated Timothy as he heard it "NOW MOVE or it will be 10 round around the facility." The squad then softly said "yes sir." With which the sergeant responded "I can't hear what maggots just said SPEAK LOUDER. SIR YES SIR" the squad then quickly responded and did as the sergeant commanded and Timothy knew then this would be a rought time. Actions 6 ap is spent on building a light cruiser 2 ap is spent on project longshot 2 ap is spent on project geminos 2 ap is spent on produing heavy walkers 2 ap is spent on producing both Hunter and tank droids (or whatever the combat droids are called) 1 ap is spent training the pilots for the heavy walkers 0 ap for the new elections for the emperor (RP and further explenation will be added later) 0 ap is spent investigating the culture of the early 20th century planet it's customs, tradition terrain etc. Look waht the different powers/super powers of this world are and the balance of power..

    Imperial Republic of Mankind Location: Novam Domum, streets of the Imperial center Through the streets of Novam Domum music and happy cries of both children and adults were heard as the troops proudly with or without power armor walked through the streets. In general there was a great mood among the people at the news that had just been gained not hours ago. The Colonial militia had accepted to be annexed into the IRM for more protection from any outside threats. From his balcony at the Imperial palace the emperor Alexander Varellion looked down with a smile almost plastered onto his face. This sudden news would propel the IRM into greater heights then thought before and speed up many of his plans. To his left and right stood Commander Dante and Admiral Winters, the hammer and anvil of the military. Alexander then spoke to the both of them "I don't think I could have imagined this just a few years ago that this would happen, it was all just chance but we took it with open hands and now we are one of the major human factions in the galaxy." The commander and Admiral both nodded in agreement "Yes this is truly a great asset, and like you said it makes us more of a force to be reckoned with. It has been expected that an almost 20-30% increase of government spending will now be available to invest into projects." Commander Dante would say. "That is true but there is a matter I think I should address." Admiral Winters said and the emperor and Commander looked at what the admiral was going to say. "I think we should help the Solarin federation with their shipyard ?" "And why would we do that Admiral ?" The emperor would question "Their shipyard is much more progressed then ours and has the capacity to produce bigger and more advanced ships and it would be cheaper to contribute a few of our resources to help them and not have to make them ourselves." Hearing this the emperor would ponder for a few moments. "Mhm you have a point there but we shouldn't be too reliant on any nation outside of our own, still I can see the point and agree with it, we should make the investment and start putting resources into the special projects." "Now back to the matter at hand." the emperor would say as the parade came to an end in front of the Imperial palace and the emperor stood up to speak. "My people, we have faced many hardships these years, from the near destruction of human civilization when we lost our original home of Novam Domum to here. We have had to live through harsh conditions especially in the early days with no infrastructures and the harsh days and nights of the endless desert planet." "Yet look at what we have achieved. We have turned this planet from an empty desert into a green planet with thriving cities in which proud Imperials live." "Earth may have died but we have grown strong and now we have grown stronger once again with the Colonial Militia joining us after them being attacked by the Kalronians. I am proud to say that we together have worked so that the Colonial Militia would choose us of all people." "Not the Free human technocracy or any other colony us. and I say to you my people be proud of yourself be proud of being an Imperial." "Because being an Imperial is not only something you are born to be but something you choose to be. To be Imperial is human not simply in body but in soul. It is to be stubborn and adaptive and always ensure your survival. To be human is to be in the darkest of times and always work and hope for a better future. To be human is to be strong and to be human is to be victorious." The Emperor would then shout "LONG LIVE THE IMPERIAL REPUBLIC !" This cry would then be followed by all the others at the squares and beyond at the other planets of the IRM where this speech was broadcasted live.

    Imperial Republic of Mankind Location: Novam Domum, Imperial palace The emperor was sitting in his chair with one of his legs over the other with a frown plastered on his face as he was heavily contemplating the message he heard. It seemed that there was another unknown human colony that now requested to join another human colony for protection. He thought that the IRM was one of the more likely people who had a valid position in getting some new colonists. It would at the very least provide a larger population. Furthermore it would help with getting more security for both them and the IRM. Even then there were other matters, what was disturbing was what had happened to the Republic Thulee and whilst he did not have any interest or relations in them before the catastrophe such a huge loss of life when humanity was weak already from the exodus was definitely disturbing. He then further though about how to get the Colonial Militia to join the IRM. He pondered for a moment before realizing what they wanted. Security. If he could prove to them that he could provide the most security then they would join him. This he definitely could, the IRM had one of the most fortified planets of the southern galaxy and they had one of the if not the strongest human military. Another interesting thing was the GTC, it could definitely provide a great opportunity for him and possibly the whole galaxy. Right now would be the best time to invest in it but he did not have the resources to both get a stronger navy to help boost his military presence as assurance for the Colonial Militia as to the security they could provide. Yet he also had other plans, he had recently gained a source of xylorite and in his mind it would be much more efficient and almost wasteful if he just used xylorite in it's raw form. He could possibly in the future also sell the refined xylorite to any passing travelers that would come past the trade route the GTC was planning in the future. Yes he had much oppertunity yet not enough resources. He could not do everything at once. Yet Alexander knew that with the rising industry it would be more beneficial to invest into it through making an Itoron refinery because then it would be just at the turning point that it would provide huge benefits for the IRM. Yes the coming weeks would prove to be interesting. Location: London Prime, GTC-P, Grand Hotel Diplomat Samuel Martens of the IRM would look from his balcony into the great city that was London Prime. Mind you it was not like the great cities of the Redons, Karras or Protoritans but for human standard it was most likely one of if not the most advanced city there was. He then turned around to the other man behind him. "So you're telling me that we could build an embassy here for free ?" Samuel would say in surprise at what he had heard a minute earlier "Yes of course, your nation has taken a clear interest in trading with us and the costs would still be yours to construct it, let's just say that we think that we could both make some mutual profit of some things you have talked to us about." the diplomat of the GTFO would say. "Mhm, I must think about it and I can't make the final decision but I can think it is safe to say that my emperor will be pleased with this, one inquiry I might have though could it possibly be a decent distance away from the Han embassy, we do not have the best of relations." Samuel would say with a slight grimace talking about the Han, the wound of the loss at Laandalir Trial still fresh in the minds of many Imperials. "That can be arranged." the GTFO diplomat would say with a neutral expression though Samuel expected the diplomat was face palming internally at the clear animosity between two human factions among a galaxy of other beings. "So the final arrangements would be that we got a piece of land we can build our embassy on which would preferably also be a cultural center and we will need to build it at own costs." "That is correct." Samuel would laugh for a moment and the GTFO diplomat would raise an eyebrow at the laughing as if questioning why Samuel would laugh which Samuel quickly responds to. "It's just that we do not have much of a culture yet, though we have a national identity our nation has not existed long enough to create it's own distinct culture though it is something we thrive towards, maybe this could be something to accelerate that process." The GTFO diplomat would nod in acceptance. "I think this talk will be over then, though I do have a slight inquiry, have you heard of some gang called the Red Imperials, they are a group of men which use much of the same symbolism as your nation and have recently tried to smuggle in some drugs." "The Red Imperials you say, I think I remember that name from somewhere, I think something with a few fanatics, I will report to my superiors about this." Message to the Colonial Militia A transmission would arrive at the Colonial Militia initially displacing the symbol of the Aquila before a voice starts speaking. "We of the Imperial Republic of Mankind have heard of the plight of the Colonial Militia and we wish to help. Though we can not understand what you have suffered through we know the evil of the Kalronians. They as you have experienced only wish to kill and destroy until they are the only sentient beings left in existence. They will not stop and will keep coming back yet we can bring you safety. We of the Imperial Republic have fought against enemies which were stronger than ourselves yet still overcame it with it's allies. We fought hideous abominations created by the Kalronians on our moon and we fought on the fields of Tassarea against the monstrous corrupters. We realize that there is great evil in the galaxy and we wish to protect our own from it. We have some of the strongest defenses in the south. One of the strongest human armies and a spirit matched by none other. We have forged a greater destiny for our people a destiny to help the survival of the human race and help the galaxy as a whole. We have and will most likely fight in the future with enemies that might seem unstoppable and we might fall just like everyone else in the face of such great enemies. Yet what we wish is that you will stand with us and we promise with all our hearts that we will prove ourselves to the men and women of your great nation and hope you will assist us for a better tomorrow " Actions 6ap is invested into building 2 destroyers for the defense of Novam Domum 4ap is invested into a xylorite refinery (Total ap invested into industry 21, with this it should become 25) 1ap providing aid to the Colonial militia if any was needed after the Kalronian attack 0 ap will be spent requesting the Libellan architect of the Solarin Federation to help in the construction of the Xylorite refinery.

    Imperial Republic of Mankind Location: Novam Domum, outer defenses The emperor Alexander Varellion looked out from one of the watchtowers looking at the line of concrete bunkers lining the outside of the Imperial center and the area outside of the city consisting of mostly farms and some mines scattered around several positions. As he looked around flanked by his bodyguards the Praetorians he saw the long and very fortified line of bunkers and other positions that aimed mainly outside the city but also got a few position towards the inside in case the inside was breached. He then realized and muttered to himself "I must say I maybe went a little bit too far. or a lot." He says as he remembers hearing from the reports that Novam Domum was now one of the most fortified worlds in the southern galaxy which has a pretty decent history of war these last few decades and especially these last few years. But now he at least knew that Novam Domum was safe and good with land based defenses as well as the fortifications on the moon. What still was lacking though was the absence of a fleet in the air. This could be a large, to be honest it is a extreme disadvantage since it denies the IRM a large amount of mobility and it can not react to a attack on one of it's two outer colonies outside of Novam Domum. Still though, it was satisfying to come close to the title of most fortified world in the southern galaxy, though he still wanted to make sure that there were more delaying actions for all civilians to manage to get into cover of the bunker complexes. So what he needed was safety but he also needed to make sure there were less enemies that would attack him. Yet luckily he at least a few dealings in place that would hopefully prevent an attack from one of it's more direct possible enemies which would be more interested in him as a whole. Alexander then turned around seeing Commander Dante and Admiral Winters approaching and motioned to the Praetorians who were standing around him in a semi-circle to let them through. He might be a bit paranoid with the Praetorians following him around whenever he went outside of the palace and kept his private quarters guarded but paranoia has saved more than a few lives, if it was not overdone. Back to the matter at hand admiral Winters and Commander Dante came to stand next to him "A good view is it not." the emperor would say looking out over the green fields of the formerly barren land. "That is true sir, but we wanted to speak to you.""Of course." Alexander says as he listens to admiral Winters speak"Then speak, what matter would you wish to talk of.""Well my liege whilst we know that these defenses will be very good for any land battles and some slight space support with the Karras cannons we feel like there might not be enough space based defenses." commander Dante would say and Alexander would nod. "That is true but what would you suggest I do, build the fleet larger ?" "Precisely." the admiral would say. "Mhm," Alexander then strokes his chin as he contemplates "Yet at some point I will need to stop investing into pure military or we will get weak economically." "That is true yet I emphasize as you personally already know there are plenty of threats that would profit of our destruction." Alexander then spoke with authority in his voice "I will listen to your suggestions and will definitely take them into consideration but I will also invest in some matters that can help strategically whilst also helping our income." "And what might that be ?" Dante inquires. "Well chlorite of course." Alexander smirks The NIP (New Immigration Policy) The emperor Alexander Varellion looking from the other human colonies has seen the benefits of letting aliens join their colonies but neither does he want to dilute the human gene pool. Thus he has decided to now let any sapient species as classified by the archival in his discovery of the united gene pool of many races. a.k.a. Da'Nor Tassareans etc. Thus any sapient races wishing to flee from the war and live on the secure planet of Novam Domum are welcome. Any immigrants must do a test to see if they are skilled and in what sector they would prefer to work in and what their area of expertise is. Furthermore anyone who is likely to actively oppose IRM policy and believes will not be allowed to immigrate.

    County of Evermore Location: Evermore, archery range Other observed the archers as they fired on the targets in volleys. It seemed as if they were progressing nicely, they were quickly improving and have proven themselves good combatants. They would be a key point in his plan to come with another focus being on the shadow guard. Together they would be the mobile forces that would help harass the Orisium and fight them in a non-direct way. As has been proven direct warfare does not work with the number advantages of the Orisium. large direct battles have proven not to be effective and now he would hopefully finally take down his enemy. He then turned to look around as if trying to spot something before he got tipped on the shoulder and quickly turned around. Behind him he could see a man smiling wildly with messy hair and wrinkles showing that the man laughed a lot. "Seems I got the jump on you my lord." he would say with a bit of a cocky grin as he spoke which increased as he saw Uther roll his eyes "Yes I tried to notice you but again you escaped my watchful eyes, I'll never know how you do that right ?" "Never" The man (Sallis) smiles Uther's demeanor then turns serious as he speak to Sallis "Sallis, it is time for the shadow guard to be deployed, it is time for your skills to be used together with the rest of the army." Sallis then sighs and gets a sad look "I wish we had united High Rock already, I have seen some of the plans for stage two and three and they are good very good though brutal at some points, I wish we could enact them already." "Me too my friend, me too, but now we must get that to happen, start stage 1 section 2 plan B" Sallis then seems to disappear in the shadows and the plan goes to be enacted Actions 3 ap is spent setting up a series of ambushes with the shadow guard setting it up and preparing positions, plans and escape routes with them having aid of the archers and them being covert archers themselves. Then a series of ambushes happen to the patrols of the Orisium all across the region of Wayrest with the goal of briefly striking and getting away with few casualties. This has the goal to threaten Orisium control of the countryside and try and lessen the amount of supplies in the county and force the Orisium to either force themselves inside of their strongholds or at least increase the patrol sizes. 2 ap is spent with the results from the coming series of ambushes a tactical doctrine is developed and created to help with making the enemy get ambushes used against them and decrease their supplies through lightening quick ambushes called, shadow warfare (a.k.a. guerrilla warfare) Population: 13400 Army: 1500 100 shadow guard

    The Red Imperials Nations of origin: The Imperial Republic of Mankind Backstory: The red Imperials back on Novam Domum were a group of extreme members of the Imperialist factions who were prone to violent behavior. Many of them beat, tortured and killed democrats or other people who they saw speak in disfavor or disgust towards the Emperor. This landed many in jail yet this faction managed to stay generally safe. Yet this all changed when the Imperial Inquistion was founded. Without any spies to find the Inquisition beat down on criminal organizations like them and then the survivors of the criminal factions generally united under the red Imperials. Most of them hid among the cargo and went to another nation and after the establishment of the GTC moved there. Here they established themselves in one of the districts and still with distinct patriotism for their country plan to gather as much resources as possible to give them support and to get a strong Imperial sentiment in the GTC. They would fight for the Emperor or die trying. The only option was victory or dead would come. Deus Imperator Praetoritum Herschel Bancroft the leader of the Red Imperials looked out from the window looking at the view of the city. For several minutes he looked outside to the city before turning around and pressed a button saying "Let him in ." Then a man shuffled into the room nervously looking at Herschel who had a cold voice and look with a cold outlook and no single emotion to be seen behind his figurative mask. Then Herschel spoke "Has the district been put under our full control." The man then spoke with fear for the man clear in his voice "Yes sir, we have taken control of the district and opposition has been put down." Herschel then pondered to himself for a moment"That is good now we can move on to the second stage of the plan." He then motioned to his minion to leave the room and Herschel then moved onto the chair in front of the computer and started to write orders for his lower officers and started to begin the plan to control most of the shipping coming into the city, yes the time for conquest has come.

    County of Evermore Location: Evermore headquarters, War room Count Other observed the map in front of him. Wayrest, the next inevitable stepping stone to unification and without taking it almost totally making re-unifcation impossible. Evermore did not have access to the sea, he needed Wayrest if he wanted to get in proper contact with the other regions without being intercepted by Orisium agents. Yet how would he defeat the Orisium, a direct approach hadn't worked and would almost inevitably lead to more massive casualties and no guarantee of victory. The problem was that the Orisium were too strong, they had just as many if not more troops as him if they united like seen with the two Orisium from different tribes fighting together at Wayrest. How was he supposed an enemy with superior numbers than him and superior strength and size. Strength and size strength and size. Then Uther got an Eureka moment. He could and would not only be able to defeat the Orisium by fighting them head to head they needed to do what humans/elves were best at, being sly and covert. They would not fight in the light they would fight in the shadows and the dark, they would shoot where the enemy wasn't looking and then change position.

    Imperial Republic of Mankind Location: Novam Domum, tunnel network Steps could be heard through the tunnel as a small group walked through it, the sounds of heavy machinery as well as normal footsteps were the most common of these. In this group the emperor himself Alexander Varellion as well as several building inspectors. They were looking for any structural weaknesses as well as the progress already made. The tunnels seemed almost endless though Alexander knew they were limited to the cities of Novam Domum. He then came to a crossroads where he then took the the turn to the left towards the gun emplacement which even then took a long 10 minutes to reach. As he walked through it he could see storage rooms to see enough supplies to hold out for possibly years here underground in case of a siege as well as mountains of ammunition all that was needed to keep the planet under control. He also climbed into one of the bunkers with an outside view that had a vantage points into the city where could be fired from in case the enemy entered the city. Here he could already see an automated machine gun which could be used to mow the enemy down or at least give a high rate of fire against any possible high-tech enemies with shielding. Yes these defenses were strong but he could also see that it was not finished yet. Many sections still needed to be build until everything was ready and everyone was safe. This he remarked upon as he also touched the reinforced walls with solid strength behind them able to at lest resist a single railgun bullet coming here if it managed to find the position of the tunnels at least. Then he eventually reached the large surface-space weapons that were ready to be used against any who dared to violate Imperial space and spew fire and smoke upon them, well not really since it used mass accelerators and other such things but you get the point. These guns would defend the IRM against any threats that were to come as well as any that they had now. He then turned to one of the building inspectors "How structurally sound would you say these tunnels systems and bunkers are ?" the emperor inquired before the inspector nervously scrambled a response "The defense system whilst formidable is not truly finished yet and cannot be used to it's maximum effectiveness, we will still need an abundance of manpower and resources to further expand it." The emperor then contemplated the situation for a moment "That is unfortunate but that is what we have expected, as you suggested inspector this will still need to have a lot of effort put into it otherwise it might not prove sufficient for what is to come in the future, we need the resolve of the people to help pull this off and make sure that they will not have to fear for their lives when explosions sound. Though they should feel a healthy amount of fear otherwise they would not be thinking well." He then made an 180 degree turn and went back to the Imperial palace for further discussion of the defenses. Location: Novam Domum, war room somewhere on the planet The emperor stood in the war-room together with commander Dante and admiral Avery Winter looking to the large simulation in the middle of the room showing Novam Domum, it's cities and strategic resources as well as the rest of the solar system surrounding it, with the second largest forcus being on the moon where the second set of fortifications were. Here they contemplated the statistics and simulations that were goon on as they thought of what they should do once the enemy arrived, they stood together in silence until the admiral spoke up "Gentlemen, we have a problem here, whilst the fortifications do give us good defences and will make us be able to last out longer it will also make sure we can't actively respond to the threats in space and that we remain stationary, if the Kalronians attack at the end of year and we only focus on our defenses then we will have a problem on our hands." The emperor nodded in agreement with what the admiral Winters was saying "Yes that may be true but how do you suggest we take care of it, we don't have the resources available at the moment to both expand our defenses as well as defending our fleet, it is either one or the other and we definitely can't neglect either." the emperor says as the company then contemplates the situation until Dante got an idea "We could as another option invest into a large fighter squadron, we can make a hanger on the moon which we can use to hold and send out any fighters we have and with their numbers and maneuverability we can use them to overwhelm the enemy when the heavy hitters a.k.a. the orbital defense cannons give the heavy punches." the company nodded "That is a good idea commander, we will try to implement that as soon as possible to make sure we are prepared when the time comes to defend ourselves because yes it will come, whether in the form of the Kalronians, Corrupters or the Han and their minion the USA there will come a time that we need to be ready for an invasion and when that time comes we will be ready.

    Imperial Republic of Mankind Location: Novam Domum, Imperial palace, Imperial office The light was on in the imperial office even as it was almost completely dark outside except for few spots of lights indicating other places where people were still awake. Here Alexander Varellion emperor of the IRM thought about the current situation at hand. The southern galactic war was the biggest war the humans had ever seen, it was almost beyond what people could have imagined back on earth. Corrupters and Keerim in the east, the Karrass civil war in the west and the Kalronians in the south all potentially dangerous for the IRM. Of those Alexander worried mainly about the Kalronians. They had a reputation of being fanatic purgers and were known for not being the most tolerant of beings. And the IRM had a former asset of theirs above their very heads as Alexander looked into the sky where the moon was. It could prove a huge potential boon in the future yet for now it also proved a great liability and possible target for the Kalronians. Even if the Kalronians wouldn't attack there were still the Han to worry about who would attack them if they ever showed that they were weak. Yes many threats and possible threats were there for the IRM. Some might call Alexander paranoid but paranoia had made him become one of the largest corporations on earth and managing to get him to have a colony ship to Mars originally. Paranoia whilst unfound could either prove a slight disadvantage or a great boon, mostly the latter when you were leading a nation, especially one with the circumstances the current colonies were in. Luckily he had gotten what he possibly needed and now the time was there to prepare. Soon the Kalronians would attack, it was almost inevitable in Alexander's mind, they would come to get the facility to produce more replicants in the war against the Ganvius where very extra boon could be just what tipped the balance. That war would be huge, these two colossi had been preparing for this war for decades and in this situation all human colonies were just ants, though possibly really helpful or annoying ants. Soon the day of reckoning would come for the IRM in one way or another. Soon it would be seen who lives and survives and all this was on his shoulders, every death would be his fault as well as every survivor, it was a hard burden knowing a whole nation depended on you, though not a populous nation it was still a nation with more than 300.000 brave souls living in it. Yes it was time to prepare to make sure that the IRM would survive the storm to come, he felt that he was being judged by the gods or some other great beings, this would either be his greatest achievement or his greatest achievement.

    Imperial Republic of Mankind Location: Novam Domum, Imperial palace, Imperial office Alexander Varellion emperor of the IRM and protector of humanity contemplated the current galactic situation, inside of his office. Things were not looking good. The southern galaxy was in crisis, the Keerim and Corrupters just kept growing stronger and even now a civil war was going on inside the Karras Dominion. Things were not looking good and from now on things were only going to escalate. At least he could hope that the Keerim did not unleash something beyond their power if they attacked the Ganvius nation. Whilst Alexander did fear the Keerim he feared the Ystor much much more. Whilst the Keerim would annex them and oppress them if they could even reach the IRM and defeat the Trialition and the Protorians and Redons they would at least not purge them in comparison to the Ystor. Yes, he needed to provide adequate defenses. Yet he knew that there could be a possible exchange and he should if he could help the Karras with their internal war. He would do this since the Ystor were a good trading partner and it could provide better relations with the loyalists. Yes he had some things on mind. Another note to self Alexander though, he would need to get better education, maybe he could get some aliens to give them a galactic standard education but for now he would simply improve the education he has. Yes things would be good eventually. Actions 5 ap is spent on producing weapons and ammunation for the Karras loyalists in the civil war 2 ap is spent on project shadowblade 1 ap is spent on improving education (Rp will be added later, this is just so you won't have to wait for me) population: 295,000

    Imperial Republic of Mankind Location: Novam Domum, industrial district, warehouse Joshua Smith was not a man that would stand out in a crowd. He seemed as regular as a person could be, he had normal jeans, shoes and shirt and to the untrained eye he would seem to be a normal person. Yet those trained to truly see a person could see with his body language and eyes that he was no normal person and was rather shady. This was true, Joshua Smith was the leader of a local gang of drug dealers called the harbingers. This group had been established around 12 years AIM (After Imperial founding,the unofficial calendar in the IRM) and had managed to mostly stay hidden. For now. Joshua was looking over the men working in the warehouse on top of the raised platform from which he could see all that was going on inside the factory. There were around a dozen guards standing guard and a few dozen men working on processing the cocaine plants into the good stuff. Joshua took pride in knowing that he was the largest drug dealer and one of the large boys on the small criminal sector of the IRM. He sold regular amounts of cocaine and other drugs to the poorer parts of society who had a low income and were in a bad state emotionally taking advantage of them. From this Joshua gained a large amount of money which he used to expand and maintain his operations whilst also giving himself some luxuries. Then suddenly Joshua felt a feeling of dread and felt goosebumps spreading around him as if a forewarning. But that is unlikely, what could happen they were safe secure and had been working for years not being noticed under being the guise of being a normal storage warehouse. Then Joshua saw some of the doors open lightly and almost unnoticeably like they had simply been opened by the wind and were not secured properly but the weird thing was that they were all opening a small part all at the same time. Then Joshua just at the edge of his senses felt something clanging against the door and tried to give a warning before large flashes came and his senses were overwhelmed for around 10 seconds. As he returned to his senses Joshua quickly noticed that in the short time almost all of his guards had been taken out and a large group of men with black clothing and golden trimmings in their clothes made of a secure material. Seeing the hopeless situation Joshua tried to flee through the back door before he was roughly lifted up by his shoulders and he got smashed in the stomach by a hard cold fist, most likely some gloves padded with a strong material. Then after the pain settled Joshua looked up at the man in front of him. The man looked to be around his 30's and had a scar on his face and a grim look in his face. Though at the moment he had a malicious grin plastered on his face which gave Joshua a feeling of dread. Then as Joshua looked up at the man with around the same standard clothes as the rest of the men who stormed the compound but with more decorations and a small golden double headed eagle at the right side of his chest he felt his curiosity outweigh his sense of safety and sense. "Who....o... are you all and what are you doing here ?" Joshua said trying to look and sound brave but ending up sounding scared and fearful. Then if possible the malicious smile on top of the man's face grew even larger and Joshua felt his goosebumps and fear getting even worse as the man spoke few words. "No one expects the Imperial inquisition." Joshua heard before he saw the fist of the large man approach his head before feeling a sharp pain around his temple and then there was nothing. Location: Novam Domum, Imperial palace, Imperial office Alexander Varellion, first of his name emperor of the IRM, protector of humanity and guardian of freedom as called so by many was in a call with inquisitor Allisandor Carrow. "So how did the raid go agent carrow ?" Alexandra asked through the call with an inquisitive look on his face. It all went according to plan and efficiently, there were no casualties, only a few small wounds and the leader of the operation has been captured and is being prepared for interrogation." Alexander then mused to himself for a few moments before making a decision "Go medium interrogation level on him, mostly psychological and light physical interrogation. Yes my lord." Allisandor responded showing only a slight displeasure before Alexander shut off his com and thought back on his recent action. Whilst there had not been any spies found inside the colony the inquistion had proven sufficient in tracking down criminal groups and other dangerous organizations and Alexander was pleased. Yet now it was time not to focus anymore on tech, politics or even the military, this year it was time to do some good old domestic investment. For some time he had focused on preparing for battle and getting soldiers to battle and that had proven sufficient in accomplishing his goals, though the incident in Han space was definetely less than satisfactory the losses were acceptable considering that there was not much invested into the fleet anyway. Now with his personal opinion and several factions pushing for it the IRM was going more isolationistic which now included simply focus on matters inside the state. Things were going to be good and soon all would go as planned Actions 4 ap is spent investing into industry to make more and better quality products for citizens inside the IRM and any excess products to be sold to their trade partners. 2 ap is spent into finishing the colony ship 2 ap is spent on a campaign to encourage people to have more children, around 6 per family preferably and to improve child services to help parents take care of the children.
