    A Game of Thrones [RP]

    Several days following the Battle of King’s Landing Lord Tywin Lannister, Queen’s Regent, Warden of the West, Lord of Casterly Rock, and commander of the Lannister host sits in his splendid war tent. Around him were far fewer of his companions then common. Where once laughter and the clinking of glasses was heard, solemn silence is followed. Just two days ago the Lannister host had fled across the Blackwater, back towards home. Many brave companions had been left behind, and thousands of common men. Tywin himself was much tanner than usual. The sheer heat of King’s Landing burning to slag had seared his very skin. As always Kevan sat to his right, though his left seat was empty. Cersei was gone. Jaime as good as gone. Tyrion an imp, and ruling in his stead far away. His grandchildren either missing or hostage. Even his cousins were far away, catering to the defense of the West. He was alone, his only company death. Though the Lannister host still marched in good order, many and more were dead. The lion still had claws, but what to use them on? Troubling reports were coming in from all ends of the Realm. To the North only icy silence. The Vale was apparently on the brink of civil war. The Ironborn marauded the detestable men of the Reach, and to the south Tywin and Stannis’s personal war had seen an entire realm burnt and broken. Tywin was a man of pride and family honor, but what happens your entire family is dead, and no one is left to praise you? Ravens fly. The Lannister Host stops, to the surprise of many Lords. Tywin calls a war council, and lords and knights great and small summoned. The martial power of the West, those that are alive, join the council. Lannister Regulars stand guard outside the tent, with the new Dragon Lances. And for twelve hours, the men inside the tent are heard speaking. Finally Tywin Lannister and Kevan come out of their tent. After having conferred with the Iron Throne, and their own Lords, it was determined this pointless war must end. However the Army of the Seven and Lord Tywin would always ensure the rights of the realms citizenry who worshipped the Seven. Regardless, the blood bath is concluded. Swallowing his pride, Lord Tywin and his lords head to the ashes of King’s Landing to bend the Knee. Stannis awaits them on the fields of King’s Landing, surrounded by the dead and the dying, still victorious. -=+=- Further east, across the Blackwater, Stannis I of house Baratheon sat as a victorious King of the Ashes. Many of his men were dead, his capital a plume of smoke on the horizon. He sat deep in thought, until a rider burst into his tent. “Your Grace, our outriders say the host is marching on Kings Landing!” Stannis, clearly surprised they would try for another fight proclaims “Then I will destroy Lord Tywin sooner then I thought.” The outrider looking a bit frightened stammers “It is said he marches, to bend” Only hours later, the Lannisters had arrived. The two hosts once more face to face, no longer in terms of war and battle, but of negotiation and peace. After minimal formalities and pleasantries Tywin of house Lannister bent before King Stannis I of House Baratheon, First of his name, King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the first men, Protector of the Realm, and Lord of Dragonstone. The war against the West was finally finished, and the whole of the Realm let out a sigh of relief. Long had the bloodshed and war laid heavy on the small folk, now it was over… Only one pretender to the throne remained.

    World In Flames (RP) (The Reboot!)

    World In Flames! ________________________________________________________ World Events A powerful tsunami and earthquake hits Japan in Honshu, killing some 3,000 people. In late March, the Enabling Act is passed in the Reichstag, effectively making Hitler dictator of Germany. In the following months he enacts a numerous more reforms, pushing further pushing his agenda and ideology. In Scotland, George Spicer reports the sighting of a mysterious and unheard of creature near Loch Ness. The event sparks serious interest in Scotland and abroad. A Swedish transport plane flying over central Europe is caught in a storm and disappears, presumably after crashing into the North Sea. Despite efforts to locate the crashed plane, nothing has been found. In Ottoman Arabia, tensions boil over into armed insurrection. The government in Constantinople, is slow and inefficient in its response. In Mesopotamia the rebels make serious gains, capturing important cities like Kirkuk, Baghdad, and Tripoli. By the end of May, the Ottoman army is on the defensive and sent reeling into anatolia. In late April, the Russian White Army invades communist controlled Sinkiang on the pretense of harbouring Soviets who fled from Russia after defeat in the Civil War. Within a matter of weeks the country is overtaken, and direct rule from St. Petersburg is imposed. Soviets who were not so lucky to escape the Russian advance hang from buildings and line the streets. Those who did escape flee to the United States, or the People’s Liberation Army. Svenska Riket Pro-Swedish propaganda booms from the capital at Stockholm, however its effectiveness beyond or even within Sweden is negligible at best. Many would rather not tune in, or perhaps dont even own a radio at all! The growth of domestic industry, specifically manufacturing gets off to a rather rocky start. Few investors were to be found and even fewer decided to invest in Sweden. However the abundance of domestic raw material helps the project get off the ground. Shipments of German arms, equipment, etc begins to flow into the Sweden and slowly filters into the regulars and reserve troops. By the end of the year the Swedish military will be fully equipped and familiarized with the German equipment. However a rather rookie officer brings the up the point that unless Sweden seeks to develop a sizeable tankforce and air force of her own, she is extremely lacking in heavy firepower and anti-aircraft guns. The formation of an Officer Corp picks up steam, aided by German advisors the program soon begins to fill the ranks of the Swedish army with capable and promising officers. 3 More heavy cruisers are laid down, and the budget groans. They are expected to be completed for early 1934. The Kingdom of Hungary The deportation of Austrians and other undesirables goes well. Austrians and other former Austro-Hungarian subjects look on the action with slight disappointment and disgust. However in Hungary its seen as a great step in the right direction. The idea of conscripting Jews into the army is shot down by military staff and government workers alike. Pressing an oppressed ethnicity into military service does not at all seem like a good idea. Instead they opt to deport them or do nothing at all. The DBSD is formed, and work on Project Pecs begins with a rough start. Many believe the planned vehicle is far to large, resource consuming, and unnecessary. At present the design is extremely ambitious given the tech available and it fits few of the roles tank fill on the battlefield. Deutsches Reich The recruitment drive begins, immediately picking up steam. Young unemployed boys and men flock to the army, swelling its ranks with promising and dedicated soldiers. OKW predicts that there will be little trouble in meeting the set goal. In the wake of Hitler’s rise to power, the industrial growth of Germany booms. Factories spring up, and are eagerly filled with workers. The construction of the Reichsautobahn begins with few hiccups, providing work and infrastructure. Development of tanks, and weapons of war continue British Empire After much debate, the vote of no confidence against George V and Ramsay MacDonald passes with by a slim margin. The Irish and Scottish rebels are contained relatively well. At sea, a full naval blockade of both countries set in, slowly sapping them of resources. The British mediterranean squadron finds little success in the destruction of Egyptian coastal assets. Coastal gun batteries and what planes the Egyptians do posses are able to ward the British off. The Squadron will need more assets in order to cause any real damage. Empire of Japan The ambitious plan to expand and modernize the economy finds much success. A fair amount of recently displaced and eager American industrialists help fund the largest of the projects. However the consumer goods market, though growing, tends to suffer from the lack of natural resources. The Fengtian clique, eager to get their hands on new equipment and to secure their Korean border, accept the support. However the genuineness of the ‘friendship’ is shaky at best. The Pacific States of America accept the offer. The planning for the invasion of the Philippine Islands goes rather well. With scouting and the allocation of resources for the invasion already well under way, the staff members assigned to the project say that the army and navy will be ready to begin by only Early 33 Naval Expansion begins Development of a new fighter is underway, Mitsubishi currently heads the project, labeling the project A6M. With an ingenious design in the works, It plans to debut the fighters possibly as early as 37’ Kingdom of Sicily The mobilization of the war economy, already well under way, faces some major challenges. Constantly under threat from Italian bombers and air sorties, factories are confined to small sizes or in concealed locations. Furthermore, the Italian fleet blockading the mainland makes communications, transportation, and coordination difficult. Nothing other than sympathy comes from the League of Nations Construction of stronger and more fortified positions on or near the front begins. Further refining of mountain warfare is underway. Austrian Empire Many fleeing from Hungary, find homes in Austria and her territories. Some are even eager to join the armed forces and fight for their homelands. The Armed forces sees a slight rise in volunteers. Designs for a new standard issue Artillery piece are drawn up. It will take more time to refine the design, but estimates suggest they will enter production by Early 34 The switch to a wartime economy is rather puzzling to some, the nation was at peace! However many see it as a step in the right direction. Sections of the army even mobilize, despite receiving no orders to do so. What meager funds the navy does have are stripped, and sent to aide tank production. Det Norske Kongeriket Metal Production sees an increase with the subsidization of Norsk Hydro, expansion also begins bringing jobs to the unemployed. Research concludes that harvesting those forms of power is definitely possible, with Hydroelectric being the most promising. At present the technology to harvest the others does not exist. Offshore drilling for oil commences, within the first few weeks, precious black gold is found. Construction of dry docks begins with few hiccups or road bumps. Expansion of the navy is also begins, with 2 more light cruisers being laid down. The Sultanate of Egypt Machine guns, destroyers, and submarines all enter the forefront of production, mostly designs leased or bought from the French. The Egyptians military Industry also finds several french backers, who help the growth of domestic industry. What Civilian factories exist in Egypt are turned over to the state, and given to the war effort. Fortification of the Mediterranean coast, and Sudanese border is well underway. With it mostly finishing in by June. The spread of propaganda helps swell the Egyptian armed force’s numbers, and spurs support for the war against the British Imperialists. Investments into the Oil industry help increase the productivity of already established wells, and the hunt for more begins, however they come up short and no more are found to tap by June. They will keep looking! United Syndicates of America A more moderate policy is adopted throughout the Syndicates, much to the dismay of many of the more radical factions. However they can do nothing as the minority, and the move sure helps with international opinion! The Revolutionary Army, never under any supreme structure is slowly pieced together into a somewhat competent fighting force. However, it is still composed of hundreds of militas, movements, and national guards and is by no means a professional force. In West Virignia, the attempts to contact coal miners and resistance organizations meets little success. The Confederate government it seems, is doing an excellent job at rooting out and suppressing these movements. Reed’s deal with the capitalists succeeds! However this does not stop many from fleeing the country to other American factions, or abroad. The development of a ‘fighting car’ continues, however the project is moved further east. The Rock Island Arsenal is stationed right at the border and is easy for enemy intelligence to monitor. Additionally, the Syndicates’ grip on the region is rather shaky. Leaders of the project state that it will be finished for late 33, when production can begin. Various contracts are signed to better equip the Revolutionary Army. Italian ‘Empire’ The attraction of foreign investors goes extremely well, some find the civil war somewhat.. off-putting , but hey money is money! Small and promising factories in a variety of industries slowly sprout up all over Imperial-controlled Italy. Subsidization of the arm’s industry goes well, and it sees a sharp increase in productivity following the subsidization. Furthermore, sales to south american and asian countries become more common. The overhaul of the m1918 goes rather well, working out some of the kinks of the design. The new design enters production in late May. Design for a new ground-attack plane goes well, estimates show it will enter production by early 34 Empire Francais Extension of the Maginot line proceeds as planned, with the French footing most of the bill. Forts, gun emplacements, and bunkers slowly sprout up acrossing the Dutch-German border, expected to be fully complete by Early 35 The creation of new tank battalions goes rather smoothly, with only one minor problem, the new battalions have hardly any of the tanks required. The French tank industry, somewhat lacking in production struggles to produce enough fighting vehicles for the new formations Investments into the arms industry helps alleviate some of aforementioned issues, however the growth is rather slower than expected. Sales of arms to other countries specifically those of south america, asia, and even the middle east are more common place, with Brazil placing a large order for small arms after the Argentines ordered from Italy.

    The Greater German Empire “Gott Mit Uns!” Late 2935 Commonwealth to blame? Upon hearing of the chaos in Neu Friedrichsburg, the young Kaiser was apparently extremely saddened and even wept for the faithful German citizens caught within the crossfire. But the rebellion gave him no choice, he would send in the Sturmabteilung, weakness was not an option. The fighting within the Colony was fierce, but after several weeks, the hardened veterans of the German Army fought their way through and crushed the rebel defenses. However, the fighting and loss of life was not the worst of the matter. After fully putting the rebellion to bed, the Imperial Intelligence Agency was put to work to discover the origin of this insurrection, what they found was appalling. IIA operations in Neu Friedreichburg interrogate rebel leaders, thoroughly pilfering rebel safehouses and intelligence caches. After the fact, It is beyond clear that the Commonwealth have funded the Rebels and perhaps even trained them. All to undermine the German hold on Mars Following this discovery, an extensive and thorough sweep down of the German Leadership and Command is ordered. The Kaiser personally orders the campaign begins, stating “Every last Commonwealth sympathizer, spy, and rat will be expelled from the Empire, they will pay for their hand in this Rebellion” Though it is unknown if the Commonwealth truly did have a hand in the rebellion, as no Commonwealth personnel or assets were found, cautionary measures are taken anyways. The Empire under threat With the uncovering the Commonwealth’s supposed plot in Neu Friedrichsburg, It is clear designs on German Mars might be a very real reality. The ‘Breadbasket’ of the Empire, might very well be under threat. Assuming as much, measures to protect the colonies are taken. Garrisons on Mars are to extensively drill and prepare more fortifications. Additionally, the construction massive ground-space batteries across the Mars holdings (including the moon of Deimos) is to begin. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Actions The IIA is to begin a campaign, extensively rooting out foreign influence and intelligence within the Empire, personally ordered by the Kaiser. Construction of Synthetic Fuel plants across Mars and Deimos are to begin. Information regarding the IIA’s findings from rebel interrogations and supply caches that point towards Commonwealth involvement in the uprising are made public. Construction of defenses and ground to space batteries on Mars and other celestial bodies begins. Freidrich X begins looking for a suitable bride

Lannister, Tarly, and Baratheon men alike littered the battleground. In the distance, a massive pillar of smoke trailed off into the sky. King’s Landing was lost.. But it mattered not, there was nothing that could be done now. The individual responsible would be punished justly. What mattered was the victory that had been won on the fields of King's Landing. The Lannisters who had dared oppose the King had been swept from the field, sent reeling back into whatever hole they came from. A rider approached the contemplating King, in his hand a message. He extended it towards the man. “Your Grace, word from the Crow’s Nest.” Stannis grabbed the message, reading through it quickly. He thought to himself a moment before responding “send out the order, rally the men, we march at dawn” with that he sent the man off. Looking back to the ruins of King’s Landing only another moment before turning back down the hill, his enemies were still many. A New Contender Several months ago, yet another King entered the game. Landing in the Stormlands and seizing the Griffon’s Roost shortly after, the supposed Aegon VI now ran rampant in the Stormlands. With the King’s host otherwise occupied, messages are dispatched to every castle and lord. They are granted permission to raise as many men as needed and every Castle is to hold out to the very last as their now King had held Storm’s End during Robert’s Rebellion. Any Lord who surrenders their castle with no fight, or bends the knee to the false king will be punished accordingly. “They have strong men, strong walls, and winter provisions, all they must do is hold” The King’s Promise The destruction of King’s Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms had weighed heavy on the morale of the men, this was something that could not allow to happen. The King’s host had been with him, through hell and back; the fight was not yet finished. Pretenders still challenged rule from Storm’s End, now all their homeland’s were directly under threat. In order to raise morale, and give the men a purpose to fight for their king. Stannis Baratheon promises every man under the flaming Stag a sum of coins for their service. Additionally, any man who distinguishes himself in leadership, or on the field will be granted knighthood. A New Capital With the Lannister threat eliminated, and a new army under Stannis’s Command. Additionally, A Lannister pledge of funding to help rebuild the capital and further unite the realm extensively helps the situation. With this in mind, King Stannis orders that construction of a new Capital where King’s Landing once stood is to begin. First with a Keep, after long discussions with the newly befriended Tywin Lannister it is decided that the new structure will be the jewel of the realm, An eternal testament to the men who would see it built. Laborers, Architects, Stone masons, Blacksmiths, and much more from across the Seven Kingdom’s are summoned to the building site. The workers (or their lords) are promised gold for their services to the King. Under the supervision, protection, and help of the Lannister army, progress is expected to go well Actions -Reconstruction of a new capital in the old ones place is begun (see above) -Every stronghold in the Stormlands is ordered to fight to the last -Every castle in the Stormlands is to prepare for a siege until the Targaryean threat is lifted -The lords of the Stormlands are called to raise more men (pms) -Ser Davos Seaworth & The Princess Shireen are called to rejoin the main host from Dragonstone.

    IN DEFENSE OF THE ADRIANS; OR, ON THE EMPEROR'S LIES

    “Long had I warned them this would happen..” Friedrich grumbles
  6. World In Flames 1933 The Reboot! Prologue 12 years ago, the War to End all Wars officially concluded with the Treaty of Versailles. However its name was far from misleading. Its end only brought about more bloodshed than ever before. The great empires of Europe had been exhausted and depleted from the fighting, drained of much of their strength; Their public weary of war. Coupled with the extreme economic downturn of the 1920s, the world was plunged into chaos. In China, the disintegration had long preceded the conclusion of the Great War. Following the death of Yuan Shikai in 1916, the country was torn apart by competing warlords and political movements. In the north the Fengtian Clique makes massive gain, against both what remains of the central government, as well as Communist guerillas based in Taiyuan. In the south, the government loses ever more influence as the warlords of Guangxi, Fujian, and Jiangsu tighten their grip on the more industrial and developed region of the country. In The United States, extreme economic hardships brought on by the Great Depression bred radicalism and contempt for the government, this came to a head in October of 1930 when radical communist, syndicalist, and socialist rebels stormed the capital in Washington DC. Though the rebellion had little sustenance, it prompted a chain reaction that rippled through much of the industrial north and rustbelt. In a matter of months, the rebels had dealt devastating defeats to demoralized and disheartened federal troops. With faith in the federal government eroding rapidly, southern and west coast states systematically broke off from the failing government. Though on the verge of collapse, the rebel onslaught was eventually halted at the Mississippi and a stalemate set in. After roughly 2 years of fighting, a shaky peace sets in across the former United States. In Europe a new ideology rises across the former central powers. Sweden, after being robbed of honor and territory during the Great War is toppled, a fascist dictatorship taking its place. Italy, Hungary, and Germany are no exceptions either; as all three see rise in similar regimes. The Balkans too remain ever heated, as Austrian and Hungarian claims to the old empire remain ever prevalent and their bitter rivalry continues. The British isles are engulfed in chaos, similar to that of the United States as Ireland and Scotland declare separation from the Empire amidst extreme hardship. Their rebellions have proved relatively successful, the Irish have liberated all but a few ports, where only the might of the Royal Navy cements British influence. Scottish forces to have pushed past their own boundaries, dealing a series of surprising defeats to the British. In The Middle East tensions rise, an Egyptian revolt forces the British out of the suez and much of the province itself. The Empire in scrambles can do little at present to stop it. In Ottoman Arabia, the decaying Empire’s grip continues to loosen as independence, and Arabian nationalists threaten to boot the Turks from the region entirely. Chapter I: The Clouds Gather Going into the new year The British Empire: The pressure of economic hardships brought on by the Great Depression has pushed the long dominant British Empire to its edge. Even the vast wealth of the colonies cannot blunt the damage. The British Isles are where this is felt the hardest. Though recent economic trends show that the worst is behind them, the Scottish and Irish are still in stalwart rebellion! All while the average man suffers from hunger and unemployment. Despite all of this, British military might is no less formidable. With chaos in the Americas, the British are left as the sole and undisputed global naval power. Truly, Britannia rules the waves! On land, the British Army is still at its core a hardened and elite force, though it is overwhelmed with conscripts and volunteers in recent years.. Mechanization in the army is also rather lacking, and tanks are far and few between. The German Reich: With the ascension to Adolf Hitler to the Chancellorship, he has spent no time putting the suffering German economy to work. The unemployed are now sent to factories where ‘tractors’ and ‘convoys’ are pumped out on an industrial scale. Though the effects of the Depression are slowly being overturned, the country is far from where the leadership deems ‘ready’ The German Wehrmacht continues its massive expansion programs, despite the Treaty of Versailles. Though It is far from ready for any war, it shows promise. Interesting and new doctrine shows even more. The army also has new and interesting levels of mechanization, with new and advanced tank as well as armored personnel carriers debuting this year. Svenska Riket: The transition of power to the new fascist government in the previous years had been nearly bloodless. The people, ashamed of their countries performance in the previous war, and scorned by the treaty of Versailles, were in full support of the rhetoric spewed out by the new regime! Economic and military reforms had also seen the country nearly untouched by the Depression, making her the envy of her neighbors, and an ever tempting lure to other Scandinavians. Naval buildup and the modernization of Svierge-class battleships had also established the fledgling regime as a premier naval power in the Baltic, on par with or even exceeding the German Kriegsmarine. On the ground, the Swedish army had swelled far larger in size than any of her neighbors, though the military complex was in little position to support it. Hungary: The previous decades had not been kind to the Hungarians, a defeat in the Great War, and the dissolution of her Empire had left many scorn. Further more so as the Austrians continued to gobble up more and more of it in, first in Dalmatia and Bohemia, next in the establishment of a puppet regime in Slovakia. The Hungarians were sorely losing the race to re consolidate the Empire… Kingdom of Sicily: Fed up with the authoritarian nature of Mussolini’s rule, the Kingdom of Sicily finds herself in an interesting position. Her ground forces, though better trained and equipped at present will find themselves in trouble should a long protracted war set in, as the areas controlled currently lacks much of the capabilities to sustain the army. Sultanate of Egypt: The Sultanate currently sits in a period of prosperity, with the British firmly booted from the province, and control of the Suez established, the wealth of Egypt and commerce flows into the Sultan’s treasury. All of this and a population dedicated, even radical for their Sultan, a relatively modern and veteran army sculpts Egypt into a formidable enemy to anyone who might wish to oppose them. Empire of Japan: With the chaos in America, the Empire of the Rising Sun finds itself in a strong position. It’s greatest threat to East Asian supremacy in turmoil. The civil war in China presenting many opportunities for Imperial expansion. At present, the Empire is undisputed in its prevalence over the continent, how it will use this influence and power remains to be seen. The extreme independence and autonomy of the various branches of the Japanese Armed Forces is both a strength and a weakness. On one hand, it allows them to take the initiative and enact crucial reforms, on the other, the divisions also lead to inter branch rivalry and the hoarding of valuable war material from the other. Norway: After its victories in the Great War, and the acquisition of land lost to the Swedish ages ago, the country had entered a period of relative stagnation. The Great Depression had hit the country with a blunted blade, and thus the fallout was not nearly as devastating as it was elsewhere. However, the Norwegian armed forces were far from up to date, mostly stagnant from the Great War. Despite all this, the splendour of victory remained, and faith in the current regime and ruling party was better than ever! Austria: Unlike her Hungarian counterpart, the Austrians had been experiencing a series of successes in the previous years. First the industrial and mineral rich areas of Bohemia were captured, then the Dalmatian coast. In recent news, the establishment of a puppet-regime in Slovakia has pushed Austria one step closer to reuniting the Empire. Austria’s armed forces at present are fairly modern and fairly mechanized, despite their small size. They boast premier tank forces designed and maintained by Skoda works, based in Bohemia. However Austria’s small population heavily restricts the size of her armed forces, and could be seen as one of her biggest shortcomings. Zhili Clique Composed of some of the largest and best equipped sections of the former Beiyang army, the Zhili Clique holds its iron grip on Beijing and the surrounding areas. Support from western business and corporations also helps to pay the bills and arm the men. However this does not alleviate them from their current crisis. The staunch anti-communist, anti-Japanese power finds itself surrounded on most sides. The Fengtian army bearing down from the north, the People’s Liberation Army ever ready in the west, and the shadow of the Japanese looming over it all. United Syndicates of America Since the start of the Revolution nearly 3 years ago, the United Syndicates have been in an almost constant state of war. The deadly conflict against the Federal government had left thousands dead, cities scorched, and infrastructure in ruins. Apart from the east coast and New England, the heartlands of the new nation, much of the Rustbelt and great lake states were in ruins. Furthermore, loyalist guerrillas and insurgents still operated within these states, making the Syndicates hold on them shaky at best. On land, the Syndicate’s military is the largest in north america, however that does not speak much for its quality. The army is largely composed of poorly trained, conscript-esc troops equipped with outdated weaponry and led by questionably experienced officers. At sea, the nation’s navy is one of the biggest, after commandeering much of the Federal Atlantic squadron, though it suffers from the same problems as the army.

    A New Age - 2934 AD (RP)

    The Greater German Empire “Gott Mit Uns!” I.I.S.T Crackdown & The search for intelligence The Imperial Institute of Science and Technology had shown extreme insubordination in the previous months. Personal feuds along with inter-university rivalries had prevented any advancement and had costed the Empire time that it did not have. The Kaiser looks on the situation with extreme disgust and embarrassment. In response to this, the Kaiser strictly orders the institutions put aside their personal glory and rivalries and continue scientific work. If not complied with, Frederick X would find men who would. Additionally, a vast population of engineers and scientists exist throughout the colonial holdings of the Empire. This untapped scientific potential coerces the Kaiser to pass a motion that would scour the colonies for above average to genius engineers and scientific minds who would work for the betterment of the Empire. Elara & Deimos Following the limited colonial success of the previous months mostly due to unforeseen complications as well as piracy, the Empire settled itself down on two more rocks at least. In order to further cement Imperial control and security within the Jupiter region, the Kaiser orders that piracy on German shipping be cracked down on. Defensive installations are also ordered to be constructed on the colony itself, as well as belt shipping lanes. In order to facilitate the growth of this far flung territory, a colonial policy granting a monetary compensation, as well as free travel to the colony itself is instituted. It is hoped that this would draw in bountiful amounts of eager souls to Elara. Additionally, the Protectorate of Saturn is requested to dedicate a portion of their squadron to protecting the new settlers while in travel. Space Piracy & The Belt Piracy of not just vital Imperial shipping lanes, but all nation’s shipping lanes has seen a recent explosion with the crippling of the Commonwealth fleet in the Outer Rim. In a move to establish Germany as a more dominant naval force, as well as a ‘Good Guy’ the Kaiser orders a series of defensive installations be constructed throughout the belt, where piracy is most prevalent. These would create safe lanes, protected by batteries and waystations. Open to all for only a small toll. More Imperial Commision & Joint Research The ever ambitious Kaiser, always wanting to further develop the Kriegsmarine and German military capabilities in general embarks on another program. In cooperation with the Japanese Empire, as well as the Protectorate of Saturn, the Kaiser commissions the team along with the Wilhelmshaven Imperial Shipyard, another prominent naval company within the empire to develop and design a more advance Battlecruiser. The planned vessel would focus mainly on improving the gunnery systems as well as speed when in comparison to current models. Actions The I.I.S.T is cracked down on by the Kaiser himself, they are ordered to put aside their rivalries and feuds for the good of the Empire. A campaign to search the Mars colonies for fresh minds, specifically more than capable engineers and scientists to advance research is begun. A colonial policy offering free transport as well as a small monetary bonus to citizens willing to travel to the new colony of Elara is instated. It is hoped to spur growth and development. The transportation of these new settlers is to be protected from piracy by elements of the Far Rim squadron. The Kaiser embarks on an ambitious project within the Belt. Under the protection of the Kreigsmarine, German companies as well as state firms are contracted to begin construction of an array of defensive installations as well as waystations. The goal of the project is to form secure trade lanes/nets that would protect traveling cargo from hostilities and project German power in the region. The Japanese offer of an alliance is accepted and engineers are dispatched to assist Japanese naval production A Triple-development project, in coordination with the Protectorate of Saturn, The Wilhelmshaven Imperial Shipyard, along with the Japanese Empire is begun. The project would aim to develop a ‘Super-Cruiser’, How These ships would be employed is not yet clear however they would ideally be fast, and heavily armored and gunned for their size, which would be larger than a regular cruiser. The Sturmabtielung’s request is granted, and better pay and living conditions are granted. In addition to their promotions, OHL dispatches crack officers to staff and drill the new force in new tactics. (pms) Colonial facilites on Mars are tasked with outfitting the Sturmabtielung with lighter, compact, and more mobile equipment capable of achieving local firepower supremacy. (pms)

    A New Age - 2934 AD (RP)

    The Greater German Empire “Gott Mit Uns!” _____________________________________________________________________________________________ The Ascension of Kaiser Frederick X In mid 2933 the late Kaiser, Wilhelm XI, had fallen ill; Later that year, the old emperor succumbed to his illness and perished. Across the empire, his funeral procession was broadcasted on both television and radio alike, a public day of mourning was allocated for the event. Though publicly, all were distraught with the Kaiser’s death, the leadership of the empire celebrated in private. Long had Wilhelm XI neglected duties of state, which led to what many saw as an unfavorable position for the Empire. However, all of the neglect and stagnation of Wilhelm’s reign would swiftly be undone. In early 2934, Frederick X ascended to the throne. He was a popular and competent man, adored by his subjects and officials alike. The young Kaiser, eager to undo his father’s damage had anxiously awaited his ascension. His early reign would see the implementation new legislation. Surely the empire would flourish under his wise and guiding hand. (A portrait of Frederick X) Colonial Ambitions Under the neglect of the previous Kaiser, Germany had once more largely failed in obtaining more than a vast array of colonial possessions, aside from minor holdings on Saturn; The empire was confined to Mars and the Belt. This lack of far rim holdings creates not only economic but strategic and operational problems for the Empire. In response to this glaring issue Kaiser Frederick X issues a Colonial Mandate, claiming the following celestial bodies for the Greater German Empire. -Adrastea (Jupiter) -Themisto (Jupiter) -Valetudo (Jupiter) -Dia (Jupiter) -Elara (Jupiter) -Lysithia (Jupiter) -Deimos (Mars) -Additional unclaimed swaths of the Asteroid Belt In these claims, major emphasis is placed on acquiring the 2nd of Mars’s two moon as well as the construction of both defense facilities and fuel refineries on Jupiter-bound ambitions. Imperial Institute of Science & Technology (I.I.S.T) With such a vast empire surrounded by so many potential enemies, the need for technological supremacy is paramount. As such, the various earthbound scientific and technological institutions of the Greater German Empire are officially consolidated into a single entity. This is to be known as the Imperial Institute of Science & Technology. It is intended not only to fling the German Empire far ahead in terms of science as well as military development. Creation of the Saturn Protectorate With the Far Rim territories of the Empire being of both great value and importance, as well as the great distances between the inner territories, The Emperor sees it fit to place the colonies into its own Protectorate, and give it levels of autonomy. At the head of this protectorate, the Kaiser sees it fit to place King Otto XXXIV of Wettin. In addition to local autonomy, Oberster Saturn-Befehl (OSB) or Supreme Saturn-Command is appointed to the new Protectorate. Both Imperial generals and admirals alike are assigned to the territory along with their own respective squadrons and detachments. It is worth noting that OSB would be both an extension of the Kaiser’s power as well as a tool for the local government to better protect and manage their territories. Naval Expansion Like many of the other Great Powers, Germany’s potential enemies are numerous and her territories are vast. Should a war break out between one or multiple of these powers, it could end in disaster. As such, both the Kaiser and Reichstag approve movements and adjusted budgets to see to the expansion of all aspects of the Imperial Kriegsmarine. Blohm & Voss, a prominent, trusted, and ancient German shipbuilding company is contracted to fulfill the order. And is expected to complete the ships within a timely manner. Der Sturmabteilung The Imperial German army is one of the key components in the maintenance and upkeep of the Empire. From policing the vast colonial cities, to fighting in many of the numerous conflicts, and even building colossal public works and military facilities the army is essential. It is also standardized, and its vast size sees to it that talented and experienced personnel are often neglected. The Kaiser sees to remedy this with the formation of the Sturmabteilung, or the Storm Division. The Division will act as a prestigious and true extension of the Kaiser’s power, composed of the most elite, experienced, and hardened of the German army, and equipped with the best material at the Empire’s disposal. They will be tasked with the impossible and expected to succeed. The Rights of Man Across the empire, particularly Mars, a vast majority of the German population lives in awful conditions. As a man of the people, this state saddens Friedrich X. However long and strained talks both within the Reichstag and with the United States seek to remedy this issue. In exchange for mutual backing of American-German colonial ambitions, the Empire agrees to enter a partnership with American Corporations. Facilities on the large and sprawling colony worlds are leased to the companies, who will in turn work to provide the average German with the wonders of the modern word. Modern appliances, sources of entertainment, radios, and much more. Additionally, the Kaiser encourages the Reichstag to move to pass legislation that would allocate more representation to the average citizen on local and colonial levels of government. Actions The ambitious, popular, and competent Frederick X ascends to the Imperial throne following the death of his father, Wilhelm XI in late 2933. The Kaiser issues a colonial mandate, claiming the following unclaimed celestial bodies. Outposts and defensive facilities are both to be constructed on the listed worlds. -Adrastea (Jupiter) -Themisto (Jupiter) -Valetudo (Jupiter) -Dia (Jupiter) -Elara (Jupiter) -Lysithia (Jupiter) -Deimos (Mars) Additional unclaimed swaths of the Asteroid belt The Imperial Institute of Science & Technology is officially formed and consolidated (see section for more info). With its creation several research initiatives are pursued (pms) The Protectorate of Saturn is created, with King Otto XXXIV of Wettin at its head. OSB, is formed and dispatched along with portions of the army & a naval squadron to defend the territories. A bill ordering several new ships and adjusting the Imperial budget is passed, Blohm & Voss is contracted to fulfill the order. (pms) The Sturmabteilung (500k) is formed, local officers are directed to select their very best men to the new formation gathering at Thelpval. An agreement is finalized between the United States and Germany. In exchange for mutual backing of colonial ambitions, the empire will lease facilities to American companies that would allow them to enter the German colonial market and work to improve the life of an average citizen The Kaiser encourages the Reichstag to pass legislation that would increase the representation of the average german in colonial and local governments (not too much tho
