    British Empire The church bells of Westminster Abbey sound throughout the centre of London while trumpets blow the first tunes of the British Coronation Anthem. Royalty from all over Europe is invited, as well as many presidents and prime ministers from all over the world. The Royal Standard waves in the wind, as a new King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the British Dominions, a new Emperor of India, Edward VIII is crowned. LONG LIVE THE KING The election of 1933 With the vote of no confidence passed, not only was King George VI forced to abdicate in favor of Edward VIII, Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald was forced to step down from his position similarly. Normally, the Deputy Prime Minister would take up this position, but MacDonald never formally appointed a Deputy. That, combined with the House of Commons failing to function properly, has lead to Edward VIII calling for new elections as he dissolved the current Parliament. The palace of Westminster closes its doors while the voting offices open theirs. And at the top of the bill sits a new party, formed by an alliance of three men who recently scored headlines in the papers by winning a political victory against the old King, in favor of the new one. This new party, the King’s Party as it’s called, is a coalition of the aforementioned Churchill, George and Mosley, forming a coalition party loyal to King Edward VIII, incorporating George’s Liberal values, Mosley’s fascist views and conservative standpoints he shares with Mr. Churchill. As if the newspaper attention wasn’t enough, the two Members of Parliament and the former Prime Minister, now Father of the House, tour the country, giving speeches all over the place, some of them together with Edward VIII, who’s shown great support for the men who seem to share their plans for Britain with him. Only time will tell what course British politics are taking, as the people await the election results. Scotland All of this political turmoil is not the primary concern of the King and the nation though, the people are reminded as the papers show the young King himself visiting the front up in the Pennines. With nearly 700.000 men on the front in Northern England and everything prepared for an attack, things are set into motion. The RAF drops explosive after explosive upon the Scottish defenses all throughout the night while the majority of the British troops try to get some rest. Upon the break of dawn, forces all along the front ready themselves before the order is given, a front-wide attack commences against the weakened Scottish forces. While the attack is front-wide, a strong, motorized and armored force attacks from Carlisle, headed for Newcastle, aiming to cut off a large part of the Scottish forces and force them into a retreat. Ireland With the army’s main focus right now being on Scotland, the troops in Ireland are not reinforced much. They are however given appropriate equipment, and the English-held cities (Dublin, Waterford and Cork) are fortified and garrisoned by elite forces while military police enforces strict marshal law, not shying away from severely punishing any Irishmen that dare take action against English soldiers. In Ulster, RAF planes drop propaganda leaflets down onto cities like Londonderry and Belfast: traditionally bastions of pro-English and pro-Protestant sentiment in Ireland, calling for the Irish protestants to side with their English brethren, warning them that if Ireland was to succeed against the English, persecution by the catholics was more than likely. Finally, in Dublin, a mixture of Canadian and English forces are amassed with plans being drawn up to retake Leinster, though no plans are put into action just yet. Egypt In Sudan, supply lines are reinforced through Port Sudan and French Djibouti as more and more forces from as close as East Africa or as far away as New Zealand arrive. British engineers build a dam on the Nile river, drastically lowering the amount of water passing through and simply letting it flood into the Merowa basin in northern Sudan, slowly creating a large wetland in the middle of the Sudanese desert and depriving Egypt of its most valuable asset: the Nile river. Small forces of East Africans, Rhodesians and Australians, all veterans that fought against the Ottomans in the Great War, stage a few attacks against the Egyptian forces, carefully testing their defences while the main forces simply guarded the border while supplies were secured. The French Empire is called into the fight against the Egyptians, part of their navy and some troops being stationed on Cyprus together with the British Mediterranean squadron and a force of Royal Marines while they continuously wreak havoc on the Egyptian northern coast. More ships arrive from Great Britain, including two more battleships and a heavy cruiser, brought in to let artillery shells rain down upon the defenses at the Suez. Economy To help support the recovering British economy, sizeable government investments called “The Royal Pennies” are initiated by Edward VIII himself, paid from the royal treasury and targeted on companies that support the war effort like arms producers but also electricity and logistics companies. Actions: -Edward VIII made King -Elections are held -Extensive campaigning for the new King’s Party -Counterattack against the Scots -Buildup in Ireland -Measures taken to prepare for large-scale conflict in Egypt -Royal Pennies

    British Empire Rule Britannia, Britannia rule the waves! And rule the waves she did. But ruling on land was an entirely different story nowadays. The Great Depression had hit the global superpower hard and as a result of which, trouble had arisen on the homefront. The Scots and the Irish had revolted and risen up for independence. Many people put the blame on George V, who had been unable to prevent this from happening… The Joint Motion. 19th of January. Westminster: The parliament in Westminster was a mess to say the least, worse than the most furious Brexit debate. The MP’s were trying to discuss what course they should take from here onward. The questioning of George the fifth’s rulership was a hot topic in the discussion, as many looked to him for order and support in these dire times, which he didn’t provide sufficiently. As tensions arose and the Speaker of the House, Edward Fitzroy called a break, MP’s left the House in grave annoyance. Various smaller discussions broke out in the hallways, and amidst the chaos, a few MP’s from multiple parties slipped into a backroom to talk. Most notably, these included: Winston Churchill, member of the conservative party, Father of the House David Lloyd George of the Liberal party and Sir Oswald Mosley of the British Union of Fascists. Later that day, once MP’s had once again gathered in the House of Commons, it was these three men that put forth a joint motion: A vote of no confidence in George V and a demand for his abdication and replacement by Edward VIII as well as a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald. British Army, RAF and Royal Navy: While the men in Westminster were trying to get things under control again, the British Armed forces worked hard to contain the problems for now. Men were deployed to halt the Scottish advance and heavily arm the border to make sure the Scots would be in no position to keep pushing. Marines were sent to help in holding the last held ports in Ireland. Meanwhile, the RAF would combat any Scottish or Irish planes that dared taking to the skies, and the Royal Navy issued a full blockade of the rebellious celts, they would receive no more supplies. Furthermore, these ships were to harass the coasts with naval artillery bombardments on fortified positions and cities. The threat would be contained. Colonial troops were called to service from the Raj, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, South Africa and Rhodesia, to be sent to the Sudan in the effort to reinforce the British defenses against the Egyptian rebels and attempt to halt an Egyptian advance. The Royal Navy mediterranean squadron was also called in to attempt a blockade against the Egyptians, sever their supplies and harass Egyptian ports, namely Port Said. A rumor spread amongst these men, that a million british pounds were promised to the crew that managed to put a hole in the Egyptian battleship and make it sink. As the focus for the Royal Navy laid on the Suez Canal, the fight against the Egyptians soon became known as The Suez Crisis. Actions: -Vote of no confidence against George V and Ramsay MacDonald. -Containment of Scottish and Irish armies and blockading & harassment of their coasts. -Initiation of the Suez Crisis: BEF called in to defend Sudan and Mediterranean Squadron of Royal Navy called in to oppose Egyptian fleet and attempt on breaking defenses of Suez Canal.

Ibelin und Aschkalon nimmen wir ohne sorgen! Und der Hauptpreis Jerusalem? Ah, dort gehen wir morgen!” (We come from the empire, and live in Byblos! ‘But aren’t there muslims there?’ No there there’s nothing wrong. Ibelin and Ascalon we took without worries! And the main prize Jerusalem? We’re going there tomorrow!) With papal decree, the pagan lands in the northern baltics were given to a branch of the Order, the Livonian Brotherhood of the sword, who were to aid the Bishop of Riga in converting the region. The German warrior monks in Riga started setting up a headquarters in the city and recruiting christian men into their ranks, beginning to organize their control in the region. ---------------------------------------- Actions: -The Crusade carries on! -Army’s quality is refined through extensive training -Raiding bands of Teutonic Knights are sent across the Ayyubid border. -Recruiting more Germans for the order from chapters all over central and western Europe, aided by the news of the crusaders’ conquests. -Securing county of Tripoli (Byblos area) -Livonians start getting organized in Riga -Rigans are recruited into the ranks of the Livonian Brotherhood -Missives are sent out into the Livonian Brotherhood’s territory, making it known that any pagans are invited to the Brotherhood’s church sessions in Riga and other Christian settlements in the Baltics, where they can learn about the True Faith and be baptised if they so wish.

    Southward Sailing

    He yawned as he got off the little sailing vessel that'd been his home for the past month and a half. Henrik was tired after his expedition, which had taken much longer than he expected. What began as a curious little trip to the southern waters of Arcas, turned into a full-scale exploration journey. The young Haensitan male had taken with him a copy of the map that was given to the descendants by the Vaeyl in Atlas, and as it turned out, this map sucked. The peninsula of Arcas that he was hoping to land his ship at and then camp on for maybe a week, apparently didn't exist. Instead he got lost at sea as he went further and further south in search of the peninsula, thinking that perhaps the distance was incorrect. This error eventually had him land his ship like he hoped. But not on the peninsula, instead he landed on the island south of Arcas, which made him all the more curious and led to him ending up exploring the majority of the southern waters, making a map of his findings and keeping a journal about some of the things he saw. Henrik was back home again, turning down the lantern in his room as he went to bed, t'was all done now, and sent off to the publisher. Passage 1: Southern Island Amadoria "It's been over three days now since I left Sutica. I think me and the other descendants might be given a wrong map, for the landmass I was hoping to find seems to be nothing more than water and coral reefs. I've now landed on the island south of Arcas, not sure what I will find here. After I landed here yesterday, I set up a small camp and took a walk along the island, seems to be completely deserted, perhaps I am the first descendant to ever set foot on this land that can best be described as an exotic, tropical paradise. There's trees as tall as mountains here, full of cocoa fruits. The terrain seems quite mountainous, but they aren't that tall. Spotted a lake or two. Plan to leave again tomorrow and sail around the shores of this place. It's about a week later now, I'm back at my old camping spot on the western peninsula of this land. I've mapped out the shores and generally done the interior. I plan to head west now and see if the rest of the Vaeyl's map is correct. Before I leave however, I have decided I will grant myself the creative liberty to name this land I've set foot on, due to lack of a name on the old map. Beautiful island, I dub thee: Amadoria.” Passage 2: Coral Sea and Triplet islands "I thought about heading back to Sutica despite what I previously wrote, but along the way there, I spotted so many things below the surface of the water, that I couldn't keep my curiousity from getting the better of me. I've seen shipwrecks, stone structures in the water, sometimes fully submerged, sometimes reaching the surface. And so, so much coral. I'm going to continue my naming trend by naming this body of water the Coral Sea.” "The three islands off the coast of Aegrothond seem to be correct the way they are on the old map, but I'm redrawing them on my own one regardless. They just have some rocks and trees on them and aren't that interesting in all honesty. Couldn't come up with a good name. Triplet Islands?” Passage 3: Solitudinem "Just south of the three islands is another big island which sadly doesn't really fit on my map. Not that it seems really interesting though, it's a big desert wasteland, with the only vegetation being some bushes and a tree or two on the shore. So far I haven't set foot on the island yet, I've still got enough supplies and it doesn't seem worth going on land. Sailed around the southern cape of this dry land, been going along the coast of it for a few days now. Doesn't seem to get more interesting than what I previously described, so I'll probably take a short dip to the island south of here, before heading back towards Sutica. Solitudinem. It's the name I thought of last night, High Imperial for desert. All it is.” Passage 4: Siru "It's been two days since I last wrote. I was off the coast of Solitudinem then, right before setting sail to what I'm calling Siru. I expected it to be similar to Solitudinem, but I couldn't have been more wrong. This place is quite... otherworldly. The entire island is covered in fungi, primarily mycelium and giant mushrooms. I've seen five species of the mushrooms, all are about the same size, though shapes and colors differ. There doesn't seem to be any animals on the island, or at least I haven't seen any. I don't think I'm going to set foot on this land, I don't trust it to be good for my health. It's three days later now and I've sailed all the way around Siru. I just noticed I didn't explain the name, it's Ancient Elven for Mushroom. Don't think there could be a more fitting name. Most of the island seems to be quite mountainous, there's fjords of green ooze flowing into the sea, GOD knows what that stuff might be, but it's interesting. I'm heading back to Sutica now, supplies are low and I'm tired. I want to go back home, once there, maybe I'll see about publishing what I've found- if I get home safely.” Thus the findings of a curious Haensitan were shared for others to take interest in. He'd personally had enough of the southern waters for now. Reza seemed interesting enough for the tired Amador.

    Order of Brothers of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem The Teutonic Order “Helfen, Wehren, Heilen” Turn: 2 Current Grandmaster: Heinrich Walpot von Bassenheim Population (Members): 13.200 Allegiance: The Holy See/The Holy Roman Empire Headquarters: Byblos (Kingdom of Acre) --- (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUtXo1sTPDg) “Heinrich, wir haben ein Brief bekommen! Von die muslimischen Hunde! Vielleicht ist es ein Scherz!” The Grandmaster’s right hand man called with a bit of laughter as he walked in with the message the Ayyubids had delivered to them. ‘We received a letter! From the muslim hounds! Perhaps it’s a joke!’ He had called. As the two read the message, they began laughing again. “[in German:] He requests me to keep the PEACE between our people? HAH!” “And he DEMANDS us not to attempt breaking the truce between them and Acre. Like we have anything to do with any agreements Acre has signed...” The Grandmaster snorted. “May Allah protect us, yeah right! May GOD tell them his name is GOD and not ‘Allah’.” He jested with a grin before walking outside into the camp of the Order to stand upon a crate and read the letter out loud. Approximately 20 seconds later, some ten thousand men were laughing their asses off. Later that day, the Grandmaster altered the letter a bit, making a better version before sending it off to Rome, with the side note that copies of the altered letter were to be made and spread throughout the Holy Roman Empire and hung up on every door of the Order’s chapters, serving as propaganda for the Order’s cause. The altered letter reads: “See this letter as a supplication, I King Adil the first, from the Ayyubid Kingdom, request that you, Heinrich Walpot von Bassenheim, Grandmaster of the Teutonic Order, keep the peace between our people, we beg you not to convince the Kingdom of Jerusalem to attack us. May GOD protect us all when Allah fails to do so and please, please don’t attack us, we can’t take it.” Underneath the letter, it reads: “It appears the muslim hounds think there is any sort of ‘peace’ between us proper catholics and them pagans. They fear our ever-growing strength and have resorted to sending letters of pleading to avoid losing the Holy Land. Join the ranks of the Teutonic Order now and we shall show the muslim hounds together what our response to this sign of weakness shall be!” They rode in 3 groups of 30, 2 going north and 1 going east across the mountains. Die Herren im weißen Mantel, The lords in white capes rode out to show the Ayyubids what they thought of peace. As they galloped through the Levant, they sang an ominous song. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5D2jyuJaSAU&list=RDjUtXo1sTPDg&index=2) “Die Eisenfaust am Lanzenschaft, die Zügel in der Linken… So sprengt des Reiches Ritterschaft, und ihre Schwerter blinken… Heja heja heja! Heja! Und ihre Schwerter blinken...” It sounded in the morning wind. They were out to kill any Ayyubid muslims they came across and pillage some of the villages leading up to Tartous, Homs and Damascus. They were told to be quick and efficient, if any trouble in the form of local guards was seen, leave them be if there’s too many. They were expected back in Byblos the next morning. “Heja heja heja! Heja!....” ---------------------------------------- Actions: -Castle Byblos is further fortified -Army’s quality is refined through extensive training -Raiding bands of Teutonic Knights are sent across the Ayyubid border. -Recruiting more Germans for the order from chapters all over central and western Europe, aided by the propaganda of muslim weakness. -Forced converting of any remaining HERETICS in the county of Tripoli -Meeting with the Pope -Patrolling county of Tripoli Christ ist erstanden von den Toten, im Tode bezwang er den Tod, und schenkte den Entschlafenen das Leben

    Order of Brothers of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem The Teutonic Order “Helfen, Wehren, Heilen” Turn: 1 Current Grandmaster: Heinrich Walpot von Bassenheim Population (Members): 11.000 Allegiance: The Holy See/The Holy Roman Empire Headquarters: Byblos (Kingdom of Acre) --- (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUtXo1sTPDg) “Christ ist erstanden von den Toten..” Sang Grandmaster Heinrich together with his most trusted Knights and close company in the halls of the Byblos Citadel in Acre. They had arrived there in the early morning, having travelled through the night from Acre itself, where the King had granted them the Citadel and surrounding lands. The remainder of the Teutonic Knights’ forces were also travelling to the citadel now, their new headquarters. After morning mass in the citadel’s chapel, the men had breakfast together and then got to work with their German Arbeitsgeist. Unpacking of supplies and the setting up of a camp big enough for over ten thousand men began in Byblos, while others saw to the castle’s defenses, repairing them and making plans to improve and expand them. Training and sparring grounds were set up for the military side of the Order and within a few days, knights were busily sparring, and the normal warrior monks of the Order were given training. The port of Byblos started expansion under the Grandmaster’s orders, so that it could accommodate more ships from the west. Envoys of the Order were sent to the Holy See in Rome, and their Seat in Vienna. The envoy to Rome was to ask the Pope for a similar Seat and Hospital in Rome as a base of operations together with the Pope. The Envoy to Vienna was to recruit more men from the Holy Roman Empire and seek the Emperor’s blessing in the Order’s cause. Meanwhile, the priests of the Order who were less involved with the military side, started making sure any muslims or jews in a wide range around Byblos would be converted to catholicism. The local church also started ambitious expansion to accommodate both the city’s new german population, as well as the new christians. Once the Order got its initial organization done, patrols of Knights and cavalry were sent out to patrol the county of Tripoli and it’s borders, enforcing order. ---------------------------------------- Actions: -Headquarters is moved to Byblos -Castle Byblos’ defenses are improved -Army’s quality is refined -Byblos’ port is expanded -An envoy is sent to Rome -An envoy is sent to Vienna -Recruiting more Germans for the order from base in Vienna -Converting of any HERETICS in a wide range around Byblos -Expansion of local church -Patrolling county of Tripoli Christ ist erstanden von den Toten, im Tode bezwang er den Tod, und schenkte den Entschlafenen das Leben.

    The Disunited States of America

    The Federal Empire of California - El Imperio Federal de California Late 1863 and All of 1864 Population: ~850.000 Army Size: ~38.250 Imperial Friends: With the war of French Intervention in Mexico over with a French success, and California having aided the victors, the Imperial government was eager to establish good relations with the new Mexican emperor, Maximilian von Habsburg. Therefore, Emperor Norton invited the upper classes of California and Mexico to a ball in his palace in San Francisco, to make his acquaintance with his new colleague, establish good relations between the two nations and invite them to sign a pact of economic partnership between the two nations, called “The two golden crowns of the West”. Kalifornische Armee: An envoy of the minister of foreign affairs and the minister of defense is sent to the Kingdom of Prussia to seek an audience with Wilhelm I and discuss options for military cooperation between the two nations, primarily the request for Prussian military advisors, drillmasters, quartermasters and professors to educate Californian generals. The goal is to reform the Californian army into one of Prussian organization and quality. What the Prussian Crown would want in return for this, is entirely negotiable. Council of Old and New: All Native American Chiefs that have opted to join the Empire of California, are invited to a summit in Sacramento. Here the so called “Council of Old and New” is established as a council between the Old and New Americans. This is to be chieftains’ primary way to discuss matters with the Imperial government, as for the most part, they are left to live in isolation from the rest of the Empire. Various matters are discussed though the main one is one of military concern, as the chieftains are requested to sign a bill that will form the “1st Native Cavalry Division”, which is to exist entirely out of Native American horsemen and expand the Californian army with thousands of men. The main argument for this request is that the Native Americans should help in protecting their new nation, one that has given them more freedom than they’ve ever experienced in the past century or so. Industrializing the Frontier: By far the biggest part of Government investments in this period is spend on the primary and secondary sectors of the Californian economy. Sizeable investments are given out to logging, mining and ranching companies, while even bigger investments are given out to industrial companies like kerosene and tar producers or manufacturers, not to be overlooked are the nation’s military and gun manufacturers in this section.

    The Disunited States of America

    The Federal Empire of California - El Imperio Federal de California Early 1863 Population: ~498.000 Army Size: ~15.000 An Armed State: “To ensure our fledgeling nation’s safety in this world with ever-growing armies, we must build up our own army. But, due to our minor population, compared to some of our neighbours, an army alone might not suffice. Therefore, California, the open West, God’s own country, must arm itself, to stand against foreign threats and protect our American Dream!” These words were spoken by Emperor Joshua Norton I upon the signing of the National Armament Bill. This new law was to ensure the Federal Empire of California would get a larger army to use, as well as an armed population who could be called upon to defend their national homestead at any time. All men, aged 17, 18 and 19 would have to serve in the Californian Army, during which they would be paid for their services as to compensate the temporary loss of a helping hand on the homesteads of their parents and to give them more financial opportunities later on. Furthermore, all men were expected to either own a firearm or know how to use one in case they’d be called for service. Eastward Expansion: With the Federal Empire now stretching from British Columbia to Mexico, it was time to make the eastern border definite. The lands formerly known as the Washington Territory, Utah territory and most of the New Mexico Territory, are claimed by the Empire and turned into the “Rocky Mountain Territory”, representing the first two ex-US territories, and the “Mesa Territory” in what used to be the New Mexico Territory, east of the Rio Grande. The peaks of the Rocky Mountains and the Rio Grande are now taken as the eastern border of the Federal Empire of California and control is assumed over the area in between. Messengers are sent to various major tribes like the Navajo, stating they’d get a province of their own, where their tribe rules, in the Empire, if they submit peacefully. These autonomous provinces would be nearly independent, yet a part of the empire. The Emperor would let the Indians know he wanted to make peace with them and live together in harmony, throwing away the old ways the USA had treated them in the past. Various army camps were also to be set up in these new territories, to ensure some degree of control and order over the population in this currently lawless land. International Relations: The Californian government would further their relations with the French, stating they’d be eager to have Emperor Norton I marry a Bonaparte princess. The Mexican governors of Baja California and Baja California Sur would be invited to the Imperial Palace in San Francisco. They were asked about whether they would be interested in seceding from Mexico and becoming Dukes under the Imperial crown of California, appointing them and their descendants to power for life, ruling over their Duchies in the southern peninsula. Focus would also be laid on the fact that it’d safe them and their people from the war with the French, and that they were Californian Hermanos in the end, who should be united. The Californian government would seek to establish relations with British Columbia, Hawai’i Japan, Qing and the Russian Empire, in regards to Russian Alaska, asking for Californian embassies to be set up in their respective capitals. A meeting was also arranged in San Francisco with delegates from Hawai’i, Japan and Qing, proposing a trans-pacific trade and migration pact.
