Ricardo Benedetti, Chief Envoy of His Grace Philibert II, Duke of Savoy, relays His Grace's missive:

A.M.D.G

Being conſcious of the threat poſed to all Chriſtendom by the barbarous Ottomans, it is Our opinion that in order to fruſtrate the deſigns of theſe Infidels it is Our duty to defend as beſt poßible the ſouthern Mediterranean, in order to protect the Italian Peninſula and even the Holy Father from any Turkiſh incurſion.

Therefore, We have despatched Ambaßadors to Sicilie, and with God's grace We hope to bring this iſsland firmly under the control of Ourself through ſhrewd diplomacy, so that it may never become a baſe for the daſtardly Turks, and may God grant Us succeſs.

In addition, it is Our ſincereſt regret that, owing to the vaſt amount of Holy Bibles being produced to help bring the Sicilians into the Light of Our Lord, We can currently ſpare no illuminators to produce illuſtrations of Our countrie's ſoldiers, as is the cuſtom in divers parts abroad, but this error will be corrected as ſoon as poßible.

Savoy is Agresssive

* -1 to diplomacy)

The Kingdom of Sladiskov wants to make a pact with the Northern Baltic Alliance. A pact that will include the following:

- None of the pact's nation will attack each other.
- If one of the pact's nation are attaked, the other nation will come to the rescue.
- None of the pact's nation, may have another pact with another nation there is in war with one of the pact's nation.

The Kingdom of Sladiskov will wait for an answer.

The Northern Baltic Alliance needs time to fully agree with it, at the current moment we would agree to form a non-agression pact.

"They retreat!" A Knight Captain cheered. With shouts of victory, the Titanian Axemen
slay as many of the fleeing Goths as possible.

Galloping to the front of his men, Zeal cheered his father's army. It was another glorious
day in their empire. The last of the Goths had been pushed out of their lands, and
Zeal's plan of peace was soon to commence.

A Sladiskov Ship has been sent to The Gloriuos Republic.

Onbord is men, who want to disguse a partnership, so The Gloriuos Republic and The Kingdom of Sladiskov can control all shipment who is sailing thoug the strait(Øresund).

This is indeed a profitable proposal, however it will take some time for our Officers of the Government to look it over

A group of unarmed horsemen wearing pale blue tunics arrive at the gates of the capital city
of the Grand Duchy of Savoy.

"We seek conference of Duke Philibert II. Our message is of peace from Titania. We have removed the Goth threat from the surrounding land!"

I'll stop posting this now

In His extreme magnaminity, His Grace Philibert II, Duke of Savoy accepts the requeſt of the Titanians for counſel, and makes it known that He is willing to undertake both open and secret negotiations as may be neceßary. Furthermore, he congratulates the Titanians on their succeßful undertaking of purging the heathen Goths from the lands of Navarre and Aquitaine, and in doing so aßiſting Chriſtianity against the ſundry Heresies which have been obſerved in recent times.

The Celtic Army-
The Celts never seemed to be able to catch up with the technology of the other European nations. While other countries developed new weapons and gunpowder, the Celtic armies remained rather medieval, taking a lot of their ideas from what they saw when they went up against the Norse and the English, such as weapons, armor, and tactics.

(As I see people starting to post troops I would like to make a few general notes... 1. They should all be front facing, most of you have kept to this. 2. Uniforms were rather irregular in their distribution at this point, but I can look past this most times. 3. Heavy Infantry would be meant for close assault and hand to hand combat. 4. Please attempt to do backsides

When the subforum comes up I will post an assignment which will involve making troops.

OOC: Will there be any resources in europe? What are the benefits from these resources?
yes there are and their effects are in the rules

To explain how I roll... If your chance is a 10/24 then that means that any roll which lands on a 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 will result in a Success, and all others will result in a failure. However, if you roll a 1 then a special event will occur (A good event at that)

Results of Actions taken hostile and Benign:
1. Titiana Diplomatic action 12/24, roll is a 6, Success
2. Northern Baltic Alliance Diplomatic Action 12/24, roll is a 7, Success
3. Grand Duchy of Savoy Diplomatic Mission 9/24, roll is a 1, Grand Success not only does Sicily accept to come to your rule so does nearby Southern Italy!

Other happenings in the World:
1. Mamalukes flying the colors of the Ottoman Empire have siezed Grenada
To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.          -Sun Tzu, the Art of War

"Might I be so bold as to suggest a toast?" Zeal asked, raising his goblet.
The men seated around him all nodded and voiced their agreement.

"To Duke Vetten, for joining what will become our glorious empire of Titania!"

Vetten smiled, and stood

"To Prince Zeal, for inviting my land to join and prosper!"

The two leaders clicked glasses and the men of the table cheered. They all
drank the frothy mead, and discussed local matters to the background sound
of light lute music. It was a time of happiness - the growth of Titania, and
the building of alliances that would shape the world in the future.

After the grand review of the Peasants army, Czar Peter II ordered Attacks on the small nations near Muscovy. The First, Second, and Third Corps where dispatched. We await results from messangers if the attacks where succesfull.

Diplomats from the Celtic States are sent to Iceland to speak to the people of the fishing villages located there...

"The ruler of the Celtic Free States, High King O'Connell, offers you, the settlers of Iceland, military protection and a seat in the Royal Court. In return He wishes that you allow troops to occupy your villages as part of the protection pact and that taxes are paid in the form of fish, a supply that there is no shortage of in these seas."
