In the recent events of stalemate occurring in region of NX401… ex-NX401… was being affected by events far away from NX401 itself.

Stir in Plot 17 as the old powers of Imperial Overlord was quickly being overpowered as new political entity was emerging from its ashes. The political leverage that Osmoria Foundation once had in anarchistic territory quickly disintegrated as “feudal lords” of regions quickly fell into hands of the new regime. The rise of power was inevitable, and what was left of Imperial Overlord was disappearing.

Osmoria Foundation, consisting of various military generals and corporate officials who sought to create a second era of Imperial Overlord with help of Oscalantine, was waning in support. The feudal lords of Imperial Overlord sought to save their own skins than to support a capitalistic venture that seemed to be taking too long for quick turn of events that is occurring in Plot 17. Osmoria Foundation collapsed under lack of funding and resources. The supply of fresh mercenaries and weapons ceased to be transported to NX401. The mercenaries’ leaders disappeared, leaving the soldiers in NX401 without a proper chain of command. Confusion assumed the ranks, and as much as 30% of the soldiers fled from their stations. Osmorian influence… which was basically Rhombiom’s influence… waned in NX401.

However, like all members of Oscalantine, Rhombiom Corporation has a backup plan.

Rhombiom Corporation quickly agreed to sign a business treaty with a new business entity, the Signators of Xia. The Signators of Xia, or Xia for short, was an independent political entity that was comprised of Military-Industry Complex of various fallen nations. While their stocked capital and military assets were substantial, they lacked political influence and their weapons were lagging behind major powers of the region, for Xia did not have constant stream of cash to fuel research and development like other companies. Xia acted much like vultures of MIC, swooping down into a country that has fallen into anarchy in order to take what was left of their military assets. They either made the MIC of the region, or simply overpowered them with capital. They reveled in civil wars, where they would sell weapons to both sides for substantial profits. They also had a great connection with terrorists in the world, as they would supply these unorthodox organizations in exchange for hefty profits.

Rhombiom’s business treaty with Xia was simple: they would become a legitimate organization that will play under Oscalantine’s lax company rules and regulations, and in exchange Rhombiom will fork over their entire share of Osmoria Foundation, effectively allowing Xia to swallow what was left of Osmoria… and thus military power of Imperial Overlord… whole. Xia was all to glad to accept, as they were all-too willing to be recognized in the political world once more. Rhombiom also started to fund Xia with as much zeal as they did with Osmoria, allowing for Xia’s manufactories to produce state-of-the-art weapons. Xia also recruited nearly 50% of the soldiers that Osmoria once had in their homeland, effective crippling Osmoria from taking actions against change of regimes in Plot 17. Xia consumed Osmoria and sold off all assets that Osmoria once had in Imperial Overlord, and used that small influx of capital to supply their soldiers.

With hindrance of Osmoria out of the way, Rhombiom was freer to take action in NX401 to defend its interests. And Xia was all too willing to do the dirty work for much-needed capital.

Xia agreed to send approximately 25,000 veteran mercenaries through unconventional route. Thanks to HESS’s blockade, Luza Sea was much open for smuggling operations at night. And through already-existing, yet effectively stranded large trade vessels of Rhombiom Corporation, the 20,000 soldiers will be reaching Light City within the week.

The other 5,000 soldiers were armed for difference purposes. They were accompanied by less-modern, but still effective and geared armored division of Xia, consisting of 50 tanks and 100 armored vehicles. They will be pushing from the North, from Plot 46, and attack the Rebel territory from its rear flank. The raid will most likely be announced, as open attack against the Rebel civilian centers will be accompanied by armored support. There are also rumors that should the offensive drag on for more than a week; a heavy escort consisting of Imperial Overlord’s attack helicopters will blaze the Rebel territory’s Northern military headquarters. Xia most likely believes that this offensive will fail, although the soldiers are hardened veterans from Imperial Overlord. Mostly this is being used as a diversion and meat shield for EU’s troops, while the Xia’s main army is planning on moving into securing the Aluminum mines as well as Light City. They will unite with 5,000 soldiers in the Nexian territories, although 3,500 soldiers… now dwindled to 2,500 due to abandoning the posts and KIA… in the copper mines which is now surrounded by rebel forces cannot be helped. Much, if not all of the strike force from north consist of preexisting Imperial Overlord’s military assets and Xia will probably not miss the destruction of these properties.




Oscalantine remained silent about this turn of events. However, the Executor, in his public speech, requested for moderation from Rhombiom officials, claiming that Rhombiom was being too personal with international affairs. However, despite the political leverage that the Executor had, the Executor decided against condemning Rhombiom and temporarily ejecting its members from Stockholders’ Council, a move that the Executor obviously had ability to play. The NNN was also somewhat silent about the emergence of Xia, although they were still condemning Rhombiom for inhumane action against LightScribian people. The CoP, in their regular Sunday Mass, warned the government of Rasvidi to stay away from HESS’s lands, or the CoP will take actions against the heathens.

Oscalantine seemed to be rather reluctant to condemn Rhombiom. Instead, it was preparing to welcome Xia into the member company status of Oscalantine. It seemed to be already settled amongst the secret, underground corporate dealings of Farnor’s court. It was all too obvious, really, as Lindback’s vacuum had to be filled with something. Dazz and Horizon Entertainment were eagerly taking their shares of what Lindback left behind, and Xia simply sealed the gap. The political transfer seemed to be all too smooth to be accident, and it seemed obvious to the weary watchers of Oscalantine corporate politics that Oscalantine was quietly preparing to allow Xia to enter its halls.




So far, all production of Copper and Aluminum that Rhombiom acquired was behind held in Light City, the safest place in the region currently under NX’s control. Aluminum was constantly streaming into Light City, while Copper shipment was halted from the mines. The routes to copper mines were blockaded off, as the surrounding territories and roads were claimed by the rebel forces. Rhombiom was currently smuggling the copper into Nexian territory little by little, but that was far from enough. With approximately 1,000 casualties in the mines through conflict, the moral of mercenaries in the mines were relatively low, and there was no guarantee that these soldiers will stay in ranks, although Xia, their new employer, guaranteed 1,000% raise to their salary.

The stockpiled goods were still stuck in Light City’s warehouses, although Rhombiom was planning on seeing those through. Rhombiom Corporation decided to seek HESS’s escort, as Oscalantine obviously denied any actions against this civil war. Rhombiom Corporation asked for military escort of civilian ships from Oscalantine to Light City, and back to Oscalantine. HESS, and if needed, EU representatives, can check the contents of the ships to see that there was no military goods coming into Light City through Oscalantine channels. Rhombiom Corporation has stated that this is merely a civilian operation of merchant ships, and that it has no direct relationships with the mercenary forces sent to protect Rhombiom’s assets. Rhombiom has further stated that the sooner Rhombiom can ship its goods away to their HQ in Oscalantine, the sooner they will retreat their assets from NX401, allowing the civil war to commence unhindered by its corporate influences.

One thing was certain regardless of headstrongness of Rhombiom, however: should Rhombiom fail in this huge risk, their influence in Oscalantine’s court will fail, allowing for Nexus Inc or other companies to replace the political vacuum. Either way, this will create even further decrease of GWA influence in Oscalantine, while allowing EU to control Oscalantine more directly.

[I assume by smuggling operations, you mean dealings under-the Nexian-table yet not under-the-Edesu-table. I can assure you that with NX401's current instability, the HESS considers the Luza Sea to be more or less its own lake. So, yes, we will definitely allow all Oscal commercial vessels (containing mercenaries) to enter NX401... for a price. All vessels going in or out of the Bazran Strait pay the small tax. In exchange, instead of transforming your vessels into flotsam, we guard them. Isn't that nice of the 1st Fleet? Are we going to search any commercial vessel meticulously? Yes, but we won't be alarmed if we expect it to be loaded with mercenaries and soldiering equipment.]

Meanwhile, MFA Marcus Albinoni was in the Great SpaceVatican. The ornateness of its cathedrals rivaled the greatest cities of Edes and KingIsaac. Still, nothing could top the Cathedral of the Queen of Peace in Kolbertiko. Completed in 1490 HE (2002 AD), the Queen of Peace Cathedral held well over a million parishioners every Sunday and feast day. It was the crown jewel of Edes, built during the entirety of the reign of Catherine the Prosperous (Roberto VI's predecessor). The Cathedral was by far the largest and most expensive edifice in the history of mankind.

Albinoni was in the Unholy Not Very Roman Empire of The Great SpacePope to entice the Spacepope with Plot 1's riches and perhaps even hammer out an alliance between the autocrat and the HESS. The Spacepope had seemed very wary to ally with anyone, but Edes was indeed one of two nations who piety was comparable to the Empire's.

FROM: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Holy Edesu Socialist State

Greetings,

Surely you are aware of the current situation in NX401. Like us, you have decided to remain neutral, a wise move. However, NX401's current precarious nature could prove very lucrative for your empire. The Nexians have been the sole owners of an oil field in the North Sea. The recent political void could allow your empire to seize this valuable resource. The entire facility is up and running; all that would be required would be the conquest of Plot 1 to secure its maritime oil.

Time is of the essence. We give you this advice in order to prevent a particularly barbaric nation of militant atheists, Rasvidi, from acquiring these oil reserves. We would much rather they benefit upstanding Catholics than Satanists.

Also, a alliance is still on the table, obviously.

Chairman Väinö Nakashidze had strong words for the HESS in a press conference today, calling them traitors to global stability and accusing them of risking an escalation of the Nexian Civil War into a serious international conflict. He called the government of the HESS petty for trying to claim international waters as their own, effectively penalizing the rest of the world over unimportant nationalist goals. Such claims would harm international trade through taxes, tariffs and financial levies imposed on merchants passing through the region, and would further risk the stability of the region by creating conflict with the UPRR and it's allies. Adhering to the idea that the Bazran Strait is actually international water with no legitimate claims, the Chairman has stated that the naval blockade of Light City will continue as planned and military vessels will pass through the Strait. He has threatened 'severe, immediate, and overwhelming' military retaliation should the Rasvidi vessels be fired upon, and he has authorized the vessels to fire upon any ships that attempt to prevent them from traversing the strait. The Commissar of Defence has stated that the Rasvidi Military is more then capable of fighting a war against the HESS, and that the military spending by Rasvidi eclipses that of the HESS by about 3,000%.

The government of Rasvidi has also declared an 'Elite Union Militarized Zone' extending 100 km from the Rasvidi border into NX401. The declaration comes after Elite Union forces have achieved considerable success in taking the area from Nexian forces, after a joint military effort from Gracealona, Rasvidi and Pokoteria/Alameria. The zone will constitute the EU headquarters for launching military operations into Nexian held territory. Rasvidi has expressed desire to launch an occupation of Absolve, which is located near the EU Military Zone but is still controlled by Nexian forces. The military has committed another 50,000 troops to the region, and is constructing makeshift runways for military aircraft to land and refuel. Anti-aircraft vehicles are being deployed to the region to protect against any potential military backlash from the Nexians. The government has also commended their allies of Pokoteria and Alameria for coming to the EU's assistance during this conflict, despite their own military struggles. Rasvidi has offered to reroute some troops and ships from the Rasvidi Islands to hasten the occupation of Plot 30's eastern portion.

Criticism is being launched yet again at Oscalantine, targeting a perceived "lack of control" over it's national institutions. The unwillingness for the Oscalantian government to interfere with Rhombiom, and indeed allowing it's forces to be supplemented by mercenary groups, is straining Rasvidi-Oscalantian relations. Rasvidi corporations have begun to withdraw from Oscalantine, over a perceived lack of stability in the nation.

Meanwhile, ships have been dispatched to the abandoned oil rig in the North Sea. The government has announced it's intentions to reclaim the rig for the Elite Union, to be operated by Rasvidi. They have cited that their ally is no longer able to administer the structure, and that Rasvidi would be able to better take over it's operations to provide oil for Elite Union nations. It has also expressed concern over the possibility that other groups, such as the GWA, might attempt to take control of the rig at the expense of Tiberiam. As ships begin to be dispatched to the rig, and the UPRR draws up plans to reclaim, repair and man the structure, it has stated that it will not tolerate interference in it's rig operations from any nations other then those of the Elite Union. Should a nation attempt to do so, the government has promised a 'Second North Sea War that will dwarf the first in casualties, and distinguish itself as the bloodiest in Tiberiam history'. Support for this position remains overwhelmingly strong in Rasvidi, as the people see the first North Sea War as a source of patriotism and the last war fought by the late Venedikt Pralnikov, who holds the title of 'The Eternally Glorious Leader of Rasvidi and of the Revolution' for his role in defeating the Commonwealth and leading the country to economic and military strength during his over sixty year reign.

[Remember, Ras, that the message sent from the HESS to the Spacepope was clandestine. I only made it available to your eyes (instead of hiding it within telegrams) for the sake of the RP. Rasvidi would know. Rasvidi would care.]

Supreme Holy Technocrat Rebbecca I condemned the UPRR's warmongering today, reiterating the Holy Edesu Socialist State's neutrality in the ongoing LightScribian Revolution and praising its humanitarian efforts. Rebbecca further denounced the barbaric and imperialistic actions of the Rasvidi government, as there is no basis for war.

Supreme Holy Technocrat Rebbecca I reminded Rasvidi of its obligation to maintain international peace, as specified by the Treaty of Port Allansberry of 1498. She affirmed that Edes would not yield in the Bazran Strait, which has been under the full governance of the HESS since the fall of the first Isis Rakael. [Second Reich?]

Rebbecca's penultimate remark advised that the Rasvidi military staff ought to have its paranoia treated by registered psychiatrists. She concluded her speech with a prayer for world peace and an end to the Three Curses of the World: Satanism, capitalism, and nationalism.

[Edesus consider nationalism evil. However, since they believe Catholicism and communism to be one and the same, they nonetheless develop a blind loyalty to the HESS. Irony.]

[Actually I was thinking of interesting things I could do and remembered the oil rig, then I saw your post and was like "dammit" so I imagine we thought of it around the same time but you posted it first]
