The fourteenth century AD was a turbulent era.
Rome had now asserted her dominance on the large continent. With technological and production superiority she was unassailable. All the other nations combined could not reduce Rome's over whelming dominance. Any efforts by any nation there was thwarted by power politics.
On Meduian the Stincas were falling victim to the Hastings Agreement. It seemed that all of Meduian was against the Stincas yet the Stincas still did NOT reply to diplomacy nor post in the international arena. They continued to build wonders as their empire crashed down around their ears. The HRE and the Khmer were at the frontline of the destruction of the Stincas.
Suryavarman 2 called a secret Khmer Konference in Angkor Thom, the heart of the Khmer military. He had trained with Frederick and shared great experiences with him and appreciated his brief attendance.
It was a secret meeting but walls have ears. A friendly unit of Metal muskets were seeking food and lodgings at the time and no one thought too much of it. Tensions with the Metals had reduced now and the Khmer focus was on the Stinca.
"Sire, the Knight brigade in the South has been trounced by an unexpected Stinca War Elephant from Rice Shores. But with overwhelimg numbers the Khmer have quickly secured Rice Shores and it is now Khmer."
"Send word to the Celts and ensure a swift handover to Celtic control."
"Another Stinca settlement further south has been destroyed however. A settler is needed to re-build for the Celts."
"A road must be built to connect this new Celt city to ensure they have trade. It is wise to build a Courthouse first. Secure the Spanish border and ensure that ancient border agreements with Spain are upheld. Spain is now ruled exclusively by Portugal now and imminent technological trading is suspected. Spain will soon learn Replaceable Parts and Rifling is imminent. This will mean that the Rome/Porrtugal/Spain bloc will be dominant with Cavalry and Riflemen it is believed and I need contingency plans developed to secure Khmer's future here."
"I want for Spain to trade with the Khmer and all other nations of our home continent Meduian, and for Spain to not be a puppet to Portugal. They have refused all trades with the Khmer to date and Spain represents a clear and present danger to the Khmer. But for now we persist in our various support missioons as the HRE penetrate deep into Northern Stinca lands. Still no word from the Stinca yet 4 cities have already fallen. They are either stupid or proud. How goes ther Funglish invasion in the Eatern jungles of Stinca land?"
Frederick shuffled in his seat, "Suryavarman," only Frederick could call him by his real name, "we have received no word about Funglish military movements nor any announcement about the Hastings Agreement. However we believe the Hastings city agreement is imminent. The HRE will press on to Mosquitoe city and secure the final city for our mission. I too am disturbed by the continuing lack of Stinca diplomacy, nor any communication whatsoever. I think we require a wider consensus from the world at large regarding Stinca genocide."
"Yes my dear friend and I think Japan will for one be most pleased with further action against the Stincan wonder stealers."
Discussions continued but behind the scenes a Metal musket was being exited from the rear of the Heroic Epic where he protested he was just looking for some more food. They starve back home you know.
"You'll NOT find food here! Only swords and all manner of deadly things."
He was gently taken back to the Metal lodgings.
