The Storm Approaches;
The nations start the new year of 18,048 YL fresh and energizes.... Well, most of them anyhow. For the Nations of the Branden-Rutherian Empire,CW Empire,Kingdom if IPL-SC,Aggony and Swissland, it is. All of their nations are upgrading their armies, building their economies, building news schools and so on. There are new advances in military, art,science and so on coming from these nations, Swissland and Branden-Rutherian Empire especially. The rest of the KnightTime continent not so much..... WoC been struggling to get all of their citizens to unite under one single banner and stop having useless debates. Celtibero, once a strong empire, is now weak. Many people look to their female leader with suspicious eyes. Can she lead us to greatness they say. Hos Empire is becoming stronger but needs a strong leader. Devotio is in the same spot of WoC. The RTK Kingdom (Located at the KNT spot on the map) was strong but also needs a good leader.....Can the current one do the job?
The Swissland Empire is expanding its Military. It is now up to 400,000 men, increasing it by 50,000 men. The men are mostly marines and sailors with a cavalry unit to be used as a mobile reserve corps in case of invasion. The King of Swissland is deciding to build a Medium size fortress in and around the city of Port. This is increasing the number of jobs in Swissland, which is not a major industrial power yet expect around the Innsbruck and the northern towns. Swissland has major railroads from Castle 2_5_2 to 4 locations, to White Oak, to Innsbruck, To Pitts, and to Farimus and some minor railroads to. The King is putting 2 million talers into this fortress along with 2 million extra dollars into increasing railroads in the nation. The rest of it he is keeping in reserve for emergencies. He is also introduction new training for his army as well. Warman is loved by most of his people and all of his men though some of the other nations can’t say the same. He sees himself as the Protector of KnightTime. He has made a trade deal with Aggony,IPL-SC and Celtibero. His nation made an alliance with Celtibero recently as well. His nation as average amount of people in the workforce.
The Branden-Rutherian Empire has a huge railroad system and is conducting military exercises on several borders. While Swissland and CW Empire have not been offended by this, and Swissland might partake in the Wargames, Aggony fears for an attack on them. Swissland, while they want to do wargames, is keeping an eye on the situation as they sit in the middle of a snake pit in the words of Warman. They are still a strong force with a leader who seems to be loved by this people and his men. This Empire is a rival to Swissland for the Protector of KnightTime, no matter what people say. Their people are employed. They are also doing testing for their weapons as well.
The CW Empire, while they have many railroads, is not as industrial as the other nations. They have many weapons factories in their towns but they are a farming based nation, more then Swissland is. They are in turmoil with their leader, he seem to disappear as of late. They have a massive population and a army, creating some tension on the nations they border. They have slightly high number of unemployed workers.
The Celtibero nation is OK but needs to modernize fast. With a Warrior Queen as the King of Swissland calls her, they may get out of this mess fast.
WoC, being as peaceful as they are, do not like Swissland. They see them as “warlike” as Branden and CW but trying to be peaceful like them. They think Swissland tries to influce them too much and WoC leader is trying to build up foreign alliances and his own military to , not attack, but to defend against one. They have an average amount of railroads.
IPL-SC is a small nation population wise with only two major railroad routes. They are highly civilized though with a strong small army and navy. They have a trade deal with Swissland and looking to trade with other nations to.
Aggony Kingdom is a strong kingdom army wise like Swissland,CW, and Branden Rutherian. They have a moderate amount of railroads and are looking for trade deals. They have a position on the map which is not too bad for them.
The Kingdom of the RTK is an interesting nation with a good railroad system, a decent army plus their merc force and so on. They got everything working for them.
The HoS Empire has a decent military and is trying to expand their trade and alliances. They are on rocky relationships with Aggony but enjoy OK relationships with Devotio and RTK.
Here we go! Deadline for game orders is 4/8/2013!
