    Leaders of Korea,

    If my Armada scares you, you may consider paying 500 gold.
    It may help you to sleep again instead of staring in terror into the horizon, fearing the appearance of the Fair Median Banner on the Horizon.

    The Ottoman Army and the Russian Navy


    The Ottoman army has begun to trek near the Russian borders on two locations. A considerable force, the Russian home defences have begun to rally to meet the enemy troops now approaching. It is expected that fighting will be seen on Russian soil within 2-3 tactical turns. Dmitry Karamazov has himself been dispatched to oversee the defensive plans.

    At the same time, the Russian navy has deposited Musketmen in two separate locations where the Ottoman empire has poorly defended cities, including a hill near the capital itself! The glorious Russian navy and its expeditionary forces has quickly gained a reputation of unparallelled skill and bravery.

    Russia reiterates its offer to Ottoman, to hand over Bayezids wall and sign peace. If this will not be done, Russia has no choice but to continue its campaign of glory.

    Queen Shivali has sent for Zulkash and was waiting for him in her bedroom, She was deep in her thoughts. She and Zulkash hardly meet these days, She become too old and weak, for a long time now the high priests had the real controll of India. And Zulkash, when he was not in his meditations, has spent most of his time with his new favorite,: her daughter...
    "The world is changing.. this change seems to be much faster than any time in history, people turn away from gods, start to belive in their own capabilities, individualism, science.. but where could all these lead? Changing the people's mind seem to be impossible, but the alternative? Cleansing the world from the non-believers, whose only sin might be our own failure is just as unlikely. What God really wants us to do?"
    -She was thinking about her last dream which She wanted to talk to Zulkash about. It seemed to be all too real...

    Queen Shivali: "First I just heard the noise of war and destruction, then I realized I was flying, I saw cities.. burning cities, armies wielding unknown weapons, birds.. or dragons above them breathing fire. Then I saw a city which I have recognized, there stood the Holy shrine, it was the city of Taorisha. It was also under fire, attacked from the sea and land. I've realized that I was no longer flying but standing on the top of a huge tower erected next to the city. I've never seen a tower like that.. it was made of some kind of dark alloy, it was a hundred times bigger than our largest buildings. Suddenly I heard a terrible nosie and the whole tower began to tremble, strange blue lightnings and flames covered and came out from it., then I was lifted off again, higher and higher away from that tower untill I saw an other similar, then an other.. three towers, far away from each other at even distance forming a triangle and all emitting some kind of strange blue beam towards the other two....

    Zulkash: Interesting.. You saw the towers of Sha'vanti,

    Queen Shivali: So you know about these too?

    Zulkash: The God has sent this vision to his high priests already, strange you saw it too. His wish that we build these towers according to the instructions He will send to us. What else did you see?

    Queen Shivali: After those towers got connected all sent a beam to the centre of this triangle, into the mountans. Where these beams joined together they have formed a large blue sphere and soon I saw a huge white dragon emerging form this portal... She flew directly to Taorisha and with a single breath of fire wasted all the attackers. Then She flew away from our land, from city to city.. destroyed them all.. billions of people, thousands years old cities..nothing remained just ash..

    Zulkash: The avatar of Sha'tur will born and will destroy our enemies, those who failed to listen us those who have betrayed us.. there will be no mercy then!

    Queen Shivali: So what now?, we just build those towers and that's it? Wait untill this monster..."avatar" comes and cleanse the world?

    Zulkash: Not at all.. building these towers will take an eternity. We must ensure that the non-faithfull can not interfere, that they won't even have the means to stop us.. they will try.. no doubt..

    Queen Shivali: I can't say I can blame them. Something has really gone wrong. We were to convert the people, yes, even by force if necessary, but only to save the world and bring eternal peace to it. But how could we convince them that we are here to protect them from the evil demons when in the end we will be the one who bring the destruction upon them by our own monster..

    Zulkash: No! Nooo.. THEY are the monsters.. those humans who refuse to accept their place, those who refuse to bow to Sha'tur and rebel against his order. These humans have no place in God's world, they would destroy it.

    Queen Shivali: You have too low opinion of humans.. you may forget that they hold God's weapons, that I am a human too.



    Princess Shakti: True, mother,.. a pity..

    A tower of Sha'vanti

    Baron Ozious had done his duty well. Close to the imperial court, and a man of respected skill in battle and administration he was chosen to act as regent during the childhood of the new Roman emperor. He acheived many things for Rome during his time. Tamed the icy wilds of Africa, arranged many lucrative deals with foreign nations, and expanded science, learning, and growth of his people. All while passing on the knowledge, skills, and plans to his young ward.

    Now that the new Emperor is ready to assume his high office, Baron Ozious is free to move on. He is confident that he has left the nation on a stronger footing than when he found it.

    In fact his reputation has spread so wide and far that the Arabs, to the north, requested his services after the passing of the Caliph. The Caliph's son is but an infant, so Baron Ozious was called north.

    A Roman citizen still, he never considered himself an administrator for hire, but the Arabs seem to be accepting of him. It seems they have overlooked his earlier Roman proclamation where he condemned Islam as the faith of failure.

    Diplomats from around the world sent mesages bqack to the Korean leaders.

    Koreas allies were shocked by the latest Korean action.

    But the leadership stood firm

    Till Persia recanted its goal of attacking any nation not paying, then the priority of korea is defence against Persia.

    Great Seabattles in Ottoman waters


    The Glorious Russian navy has engaged and destroyed several Ottoman ships in the southern waters off the coast of Murad, losses of the Russian frigate NKV Unstoppable was reported. Meanwhile, the first Ottoman blood has been spilled on Russian soil. No Russian casualties reported.

    It was after these triumphs that a message reached Prince Igor from the island of Bayezid. Roman troops now filled the city of Bayezid's wall. Was this a bid to join the conflict? Or just a way for the incomparably cowardly Ottoman to save their foul hides? It seemed all Ottoman flags had been removed during the night and replaced with Roman ones. Unsure of the situation, the Knight in charge, Lord Victor decided to enter the city under official Russian flag and was met by a Centurion of Roman Hastati who told him that the city was now Roman. While riding through the city, a group of Ottoman militia gathered together wielding axes. Making sure that none of them would cause any trouble, Victor took a sword and personally butchered them down to the last man. Covered in blood and brimming with bloodlust he decided to leave the city before others would befall the same fate.


    Upon hearing of the city transfer, Prince Igor proclaimed a proclamation.

    In time of war, there are many who will seek to profit from the struggles of others. Now is such a time, Rome has deprived Russia of its right to conquest and under normal circumstances this might well have resulted in war. Russia admonishes the Roman government and the powers of the region to adhere to honor in war and not cowardly sell off cities right before their fall.

    Russia demands that Rome formally take sides in the conflict and join the war, which is what they have in effect done by supporting the Ottoman in such a fashion, or prepare to make arrangements for transference of Bayezid's wall to Russian hands.

    Should Rome involve itself in this conflict, Russia must call on its allies, as this conflict will no longer be a limited dispute between Ottoman and Russia, despite our continued efforts to avoid escalation.

    story below based on the story of Job

    Fat Ottomans flee to Beli'Az

    Guru Beli'Az of or Media was alone in his throne room.
    All by himself.
    Suddenly the doors opened.
    A man arrived.
    Stressed, scared, tired.
    He had clearly ran for miles.

    He bowed his head
    And said: "Fat Guru,
    I was in the field, the cattle was feeding itself.
    Suddenly an army of 15000 Russians came.
    They killed the cattle
    murdered all men
    I only am escaped alone to tell thee."




    While he was yet speaking, another Fat Ottoman came in.

    "Fat One" he spoke up.
    "We were taking care of the sheep
    in the fields near Mehmed.
    The lambs were playing and their mothers were grazing.
    Then suddenly a troop of Russians came.
    They have slain the sheep with the edge of the sword
    and sent bullets into the heads of the others.
    I only am escaped alone to tell thee"



    While he was yet speaking, another Fat Ottoman came in.

    "Thy Fatness!" he whispered.
    "I was in the city of Mehmed.
    The streets were filled with people.
    Children were playing.
    Fathers were doing business.
    Mothers were chatting.

    Then suddenly a gigantic army of Russians came in.
    They raped our women, enslaved our children,
    killed all men and destroyed the houses.
    No one was left alive.
    I only am escaped alone to tell thee."



    While he was yet speaking, a Fat Minor Guru came in. It was the Minor Guru of Mehmed.

    "Great One, Fat Guru" he started.
    "We were in the Temple of Mehmed.
    Worshipping ourselves, inspired by Hastog the Fat.
    Then the Russians entered the place.
    Their hair was long.
    They killed us all and be-bellied the statue of Hastog the Fat.
    I only am escaped alone to tell thee."



    Beli'Az raises fist in Anger

    Then Beli'A raised from his throne.
    Anger in his eyes.
    "Not the Belly of Hastog!"
    He raised his fist up and spoke
    He spoke up with a Great Voice.
    The Voice was heard in all corners of Hascon.
    The voice was carried to the ears of the Russians.
    It said:

    "Prince Igor, now you have gone too far!
    STOP IT or I WILL STOP YOU!
    Make peace with the Ottomans at good terms.
    Or I will make peace between you on my terms."

    While the voice was still in echoing in the air,
    the Guru ordered special armies of Grenadiers to
    be dispatched to Ottoman lands, south of the
    Mediterranean, to protect all Fat Ottomans.

    A dove arrived on the main ship of the Persian Armada.
    It brought a message.
    An order was given.
    All ships then changed course and sailed home again.

    To Guru Beli'Az


    Dear Guru. You made it quite clear to us earlier that you do not care for what happens between Russia and Ottoman.

    I quote from your letter to us:
    Quote Originally Posted by Guru Beli'Az

    Now one Hairy piece of scum invades another Hairy piece of scum.
    Why would I care?
    Why don't you kill all Ottomans and let all Ottomans kill you.
    We don't care.
    This war is not our business. Just keep it out of our lands.
    You tell us to kill all Ottomans and when we kill some, you respond with great anger? You know that Russia does not fight wars to be considered noble, we fight to win. You have even agreed to sell us weapons. Weapons which we have paid for and are awaiting delivery of.

    As we are fighting courageously against a larger enemy, in superior size and number, we have made choices that we feel are perfectly reasonable. As this letter is written, Ottoman troops have marched in large numbers onto Russian territory. The city of Mehmed was an extremely strategically important part of the Ottoman war effort and as such, there could be only one logical outcome. The Ottoman had every opportunity to defend it, and chose not to. At its location it made all Ottoman lands completely unassailable for any Russian army. Therefore, it was pure military tactics that demanded its burning. Persia has many great generals and must have known this would happen.

    The Ottoman are both larger and more numerous than Russia, why do they need your protection? Can they not protect themselves? Perhaps they should not have been so greedy if they could not defend their cities.

    As for peace, we have offered the Ottoman peace on terms, but they have not even replied to them. We wish peace, but it is the Ottoman who have forced us to war through their vast military buildup, including large numbers of Trebuchets which are in no way defensive weapons. As we are fighting an enemy superior in number and size, we must make use of any and all means to be victorious.


    As for now, we are willing to agree to peace if Ottoman relinquishes one of their southern colonies in the land called Africa. We are not unreasonable, we are merely fighting a war of pre-emptive defence.

    Prince Igor,

    You could kill as many Hairy Ones as you wanted.
    But you decided to raze the Temple of the Fat One.
    You had to unbelly him.
    Now you have gone too far.
    Enough is Enough.

    Now I have had enough of it.
    I just want it to quit.
    Stop it. End it.

    Make peace with the Ottomans.
    Find terms. I don't care how.
    Just do it.

    Don't question my decisions.
    I don't care what I said yesterday.
    What counts is what I say today.
    Screw yesterday, it's tomorrow.

    If they will not discuss peace with you,
    then I'll make a new decision.
    Don't bother me with that now.

    Beli'Az

    Guru Beli'Az hides in his room

    After finishing the letter to the Russians,
    Beli'Az (tanned by the sun) returned to his personal room.
    He needed to rest.
    Inside his room he fell on his bed.
    Cried like a baby.
    The reports from Mehmed had broken him.

    "I can't do it anymore.
    It's all so difficult" he cried with his head buried under some pillows.
    "They all want me to be mean and scary, but I simply can't do it"
    His body was shakin.

    "First the Russians want help, then the Ottomans want help. They all want help from me. But I'm scared. Now the Koreans are angry and I never wanted to scare them. I can't help it that I'm that huge and that I scare them all" he continued to whine.

    "Help me mother, help me.
    I wish that I was never born.
    I should have been killed when I was a baby.
    My life should have been terminated in it's dawn.
    But now her I am.
    Carrying the power of a hawk with the heart of a sparrow.
    My hand on the button of destruction while I care for construction.
    Mother please, take me back inside.
    I don't want it anymore"

    Then he straightened his face again and left the room.
    No one knew about the heart of this Fat Lord.

    Russia,

    I will keep this concise.

    You razed Mehmed.

    No civilization in the history of mankind has ever razed a city.

    I offered you settlers for free before this. The siege equipment you saw was not intended for Russian blood, ask your friends the Byzantines if you don't beleive me.

    Now they are.

    I do not ask for help from anyone else.

    You want peace? Kill all your people and drown the seas in Russian blood. After that, change the name of your capital city to Ottoman Slave. That is my price for peace and I will not stop bringing horror to your land until this is achieved.

    Selim.

    To all nations of the world


    As the Ottoman have so clearly shown, they are hellbent on nothing but death and destruction. Russia is fighting a limited conflict, we have already reached our goals and are prepared to discuss terms. We have been willing to do this since the beginning. Yet the Ottoman are rambling in madness. It can only be clear that they have hated us and been hell-bent on our destruction since the beginning. If this war carries on it will undoubtedly escalate greatly. Russia does not wish a destabilization of the entire region, but it seems that Ottoman does. As such, we will continue to defend our lands, for though we have only minor landings on Ottoman territory, they have large armies in our lands, and already they are murdering and pillaging the countryside of Novgorod and Sevastopol. We will defeat the invaders, perhaps then the Ottoman will finally see reason.

    We have no fear however, Russia prevails.

    Korea was becoming more paranoid as time passed.


    Based on its decree to the world earlier thst all shipping wishing to traverse korena waters needed official passage, the koreans discoverd an ottoman boat in its waters tht had not asked for passage.

    Accordingly it was escorted out of korean waters.

    The captain was asked his purpose and refused t oanswer.

    Korea has sent a letter to persia querying why they cancleed al ldeals with korea. We feel it is worth 300 gold for cancellation of these deals.

    It was these cancleations that led to the paranoia starting

    Lord of Korea,

    You ask us why we cancelled our deals with Korea.
    We only cancelled the deal that did not benefit us anymore.
    If you can offer us something we need, then we are willing to send you the goods again.

    It was you who closed the borders for Median ships.

    Deep in Constantinople

    Justinian looked round the room at the select few advisors who knew the truth about Byzantine foreign and military policy.

    As they talked softly words laden with meaning floated past his ears "... opetation holy strike ... decapitation strategy ... eastern underbelly ..."

    Momentarily though his thoughts were drawn to the north, the news emerging of the escalating Russian-Ottoman conflict, then he tapped lightly on the table to call the meeting to order.

    "Gentlemen, to business, updates please"

    One by one the men spoke,

    The chief science advisor outlining the recent progress, the standardisation of production and machinery such that craftsmen no longer needed to produce each item uniquely, but rather machines produce 'parts' which can be assembled later, and if something breaks, just that part needs replacing.

    ... discussion followed, the military pushing the industrialist for when this technology could be applied to weaponry and other military equipment, so it could simply roll off the machine lines and be assembled? The industrialists shook their heads, refusing to commit to timescales.

    The diplomat outlined the current state of the ICS (india containment strategy). Going through the ten nations currently actively following through on anti-India strategies. Outlining the cell structure, such that there were four different groups of nations each not knowing the detaills of the others, though perhaps guessing at the existance of more. Going through the two military alliances, the containment approaches, the secret commitments to abandon apparent friendships when the time was right.

    ... discussion followed again. Justinian pressing the diplomat on the nature of the commitments, the military intrlligence agent confirming the basic veracity of the troop build up in allied nations. Argument over the likely impact of the Russian-Turkish war, the Inca-Egyptian war and the current instability in Korea.


    The intelligence agent
    explaining the reduction in Indian espionage activity against Byzantium and sharing with his colleagues the latest reports of rioting breaking out against the Vampire Queen within her own heartland cities.



    ... again much discussion. Some suggesting that India's eyes were now turned eastwards to defending its island territories against the Persians. The military urging that no let up in military build up, not trusting this Indian tactic.

    The speaker of the representatives discussing the success of the new constitution, the tensions in the west with Greek expansion particlarly near Antioch, the development of the Islands particularly the new regional parliment, the southern lands ...

    ... discussion continued late into the night

    General Roberts walked out of the hall, he had been invited to attend by the Korea high command to learn new ways of militasry engagement.

    The Byzantines were very efficianet and apart from secret locations of trroops were very informative.

    He sent meesage hometo iprove the korean army and then reenterd the hall to speak to the Byzantine of other things

    WORLD ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

    ----

    Rip van Greekle awoke after a thousand year sleep….

    The English oppressors of yesteryear were now benefactors.
    Rip sent them a diplomatic message requesting further colonial assistance.
    It would reflect well on England if Greece can rise from the sleep and play a serious role in this world.

    Greece spontaneously erupted into a Golden Age at the news of Rip's awakening!!!

    After inspecting the building progress in all his cities, now with Golden Age production, Rip called for a revolution!!!
    Bureaucracy was installed along with serfdom and free religion.
    No longer will Greece be in the technological backwaters.
    Islam remains the strong choice of most of the population but all religions are now welcome!!!
    Science is the aim….

    For eons Greece had toiled hard without leadership but brilliant advances were made in this time and from a small population many great citizens were enunciating great ideas and strategies for Greece to advance….

    Let it be known to those nations who have asked that our great citizens are Greek and are ours to develop Greece!!!
    So, please do not threaten Greece.
    And let our cultural tensions be negotiated on a case by case basis.
    One idea that occurred to Rip was that a deal might be negotiated with Rome to trade a mainland Roman city of Transterminus with our colony with a sweetener thrown in…

    England is one nation that has helped Greece and this is sincerely appreciated; but more help is needed.
    Rip is on his way to seek an audience with The Hulk to secure Greece's future.
    Rumblings in neighbouring lands needed to be quelled and new alliances forged for the betterment of all!!!

    After visiting England Rip is hoping to visit Rome to flesh out new deals as mentioned....

    Rip thanks India for her recent trade deals.

    Hearing the news of the new leadership in Greece, Justinian sent ambassadors immediately, glad that there was now a power in Greece to relate to.
