    Reminds me of my first story.

    Reminds me, almost eerily, of my first story.

    This has a great deal of potential, and I wish you the greatest luck in its composition.

    -Kannan Relations-
    The foreign ambassador to France stepped nimbly into the King’s chamber. At the moment the Domestic Advisor was with the King, and the ambassador did not want to interrupt. But coolly, the King waved his hand to signal the ambassador over to him.
    “I just don’t want to see those people in Vehn and Bwore to starve. Get to work out there as soon as you can. Start building up some Temples too to improve our relations with the people out on the border.” The King was saying as the ambassador walked up to the desk.
    “Yes my lord.” The advisory gathered what few papers he had and left the chamber. The King stood with a smile on his face to greet the French ambassador.
    “Ambassador Jean Paul! How are you?” the King said inviting him to sit.
    “I’ve had a long vacation from your beautiful lands to speak with my Queen, my good King. And we have a proposal for your Kingdom you may want to look into.” Jean Paul had a smile on his face as he handed the King the proposal.
    “Gems for Dyes?” the King asked. “Doesn’t seem like a bad offer. Espcially coming from my ever trustful friends the French.” The King’s face gave way to another smile. “Yes. This seems like a good deal, tell your Queen that her first shipment is with you on your journey home.”
    “Yes sir.”
    Suddenly, just before the ambassador arrived, another man stepped in. He looked a little more worn than anyone else that had walked through those doors in the past days. The King, not losing a beat in his last statements to the ambassador, addressed the young man by name without even needing to remember it.
    “Captain Tremond!” the young rusty looking man walked to the King.
    “Your highness.” Tremond said, bowing slightly. “What do I earn the extreme honor of an audience?
    “It is I that is honored Tremond.” The King said. “You’ve mapped this entire continent’s coastline, and now I have a job for you, if you’re interested.”
    “For my King I am interested in anything.” Tremond said with a grin.
    “Good. I want you to take a group of settlers to find the rumored island in the western waters.” Tremond nodded, knowing the rumor. “I want you to set up a city there where you believe it will be more fruitful.”
    “What’s the payment my Lord? Other than the honor of serving my King and Country?” the grin grew to being a smile. But Tremond would not leave any agreement without knowing what he was to get in return.
    “For your services I would be willing to give you 500 gold pieces. And you could, if you choose have the honor of naming the colony after yourself. Interested still?”
    “Yes. When do I set off?”

    -Growing Shadows-
    “Sir.” The foreign advisor ran into the King’s chamber. “The Chinese have pulled away from our agreement of wines!”
    “Discontinue payments of gold now.” Kahnn said, looking up.
    “I have already given that order sire. Do you know why this is happening?”
    “Not the immediate cause, but I do believe that our friend Mao is showing his teeth. Did you hear of the Spearmen legion attempting to cross the Jerim lands?” the King asked of his advisor.
    “Yes sir. I did. They were sent back to the border, and hour later the crossed only to meet our Horsemen. They were sent back and second time and have stayed at the border since.”
    “That makes me uneasy. I don’t like anyone moving units through my realm. They apparently got extremely angry that they were denied to pass. That may be what lead to this end to trade. Then again, maybe Mao just didn’t have a good season in his vineyards. Either way I don’t like it. I have ordered General Gueven to Jerim. He will begin construction of an army of Knights.”
    “Sir?” the advisor looked confused and frightened in the same instant. “Are you going to risk open war?”
    “I may have no choice. China has been violating our borders and our agreements for many years. I cannot allow it to continue. If a war on China is to where fate is to take us, then that is what I will prepare for.”
    “But, my lord, the Chinese army could turn our eastern lands to rubble! Castle Ian and Verin are not equipped to stand off an invading army!” the foreign minister looked at the map on Kahnn’s desk and knew it was a possibility – War with China.
    “I’m going to summon my Military Advisors and Generals here. If you and I fail to negotiate with Mao and his Chinese Empire, we will be forced to engage him off the diplomatic table.”

    The Kingdom of Kann

    * Writer’s Note *
    I decided that after a few games of horrible power struggles, I would familiarize myself with Civ3 with a Tiny Planet with Three enemies. This was only my fourth full game, and I still didn’t know all the ropes yet so I wanted to play one through to learn the bare minimum. (A lot of help came from this site, which I greatly appreciated!)
    And even though my Civilization was actually Germany, I renamed all the aspects to make it more personalized for such a shorter game.
    Hope you enjoy my story! I enjoyed creating it!

    The Kingdom of Kann

    -King Kahnn-
    From his Palace, King Kahnn could see the heart of his Kingdom. To the south, the great city of Kehnt was dwarfed by the two looming mountains that stood tall by it. These two mountains created the Kehnt Pass, where years ago Kahnn’s father defeated an army of barbarians. The King could also see the city of Torin to the north, and the city of Jerim to the southeast. And although he could not see past the Eastern Kann Mountain range, he knew that behind it nestled safely the city of Beyre.
    He looked out at his kingdom pleased. It was the largest nation the area had ever seen. Not even the French or Chinese nations were so extended. The Chinese sat looming in the south of the Kingdom. And the French rested to the northeast. The weak yet dangerous Aztecs settled the lands most southeast of the Kingdom, past Chinese lands.
    The King Kahnn ended his view of his realm as he turned to return to his office. There he was met by his foreign minister and advisor, “Sire, the French are requesting an audience with you. I believe they wish to buy or trade for some of our Dyes.”
    “Good.” Kahnn said calmly, sitting on his large comfortable chair. “and I trust you have spoken to the Chinese about their convoys and troop parties?”
    “Yes sir,” the advisor said, placing a peace of parchment on the King’s desk, “they have agreed not to encroach on the border any further, but they did demand of you to ‘resist your paranoia’. They then dismissed me.”
    “Paranoia is a blind man’s calling for action. I know what they want. It’s our unclaimed western lands. They also want to shift the balance of power here in the west. I’m not a fool. I will not allow that to happen.”
