TEAM ALPHA CENTAURI DECLARES ITSELF THE ONE TRUE RULER OF THIS PLANET AND THE -AS OF YET UNDISCOVERED- UNIVERSE
880AD - We have scouting parties all over the world.
We know the diplomatic people who call themselves "Gathering Storm". We know the whereabouts of their cities and the location of their most important resources. We have much experience in diplomatic contacts with them, and we know how to get them to do what we want (just do what they want). In recent times this diplomatic experience has been neglected a bit and we are know getting to know their military defenses. It's a tough defense. We had some succes at the beginning of our war, mostly due to the surprise effect, but GS re-organised themselves and held off our attack at the next city. This was a severe setback, but from this experience we knew we had to focus on surprises. We loaded up some of our troops on galleys and started pinching at strategically important, but relatively undefended spots along their coast. Some of these attacks were very succesful, some others made us lose small parts of our army. All of them however, made it necessary for GS to spread out their defensive army instead of concentrating on one city at a time. This is where we stand now, we don't claim a millitary victory over GS -yet-. We are sure though, that in the long run, we will win this war.
We also have some scouts roaming about on a different continent. We discovered the three tribes of "The Horde", "The Mercenaries" and "Sarantium". Between each of these three, there is some area of wasteland, as a reminder of some violent wars they must have fought between each other. Now everything seemed peaceful there and our scouts didn't notice any direct hostillity towards team AC. However, they could feel very clearly the trust between these tribes themselves is gone forever. Our galleys are on the way to pick them up again, because we think the wastelands between those territories won't be a peaceful place for much longer.
We have sailed around the globe and didn't find any other tribes. It seems there is no real peaceful place anywhere on this planet and that's a pity. The population of this world is constantly declining. Several hundred years ago, our scouts used to encounter lots and lots of friends from different tribes while walking through the woods. Now however, it seems as if we could walk up to the center of these territories without encountering anyone. All vibrant cities have become empty ghost towns. We have started to see this happening in team AC too and it's not a pretty sight. The things our people used to do for fun, seem to have become a chore now.
If we want to survive as a species and not become the food or slaves of some wild animals, we have to unite. The only solution we see, is to start living together. All of us. We will encounter new interesting people, we will be able to exchange stories and experience. The ghost towns will be revitalised and morale will rise again. This is our vision.
We welcome all of you to move to our houses and unite under the glory of The One Yang! While it might be seen as arrogant by some, we really do believe team AC will be the best home for all of us. To quote an influencial member of the government :
We are far and away ahead on all aspects of the Demographics screen an our industrial and technological might mean we can easily absorb 2:1 losses in warfare with GS, thus our victory over them is inevitable.
