[Game] Uncivil War: Vengeance in the East
August Fox walks in once more to the negotiation room. In her hand, the last few embers of a cigar slowly die out.

"I've noticed recent activity in the Grychak lake. Would love to hear more about that, lest you get sunk where you stand."
but if i'm never your hero
i can never let you down

Making sure nobody gets ideas to attack the New Macedonian Empire by water, if you mean me. As I have consistently maintained.

As for sinking my ship. That would be more of a threat if you had the naval power for it.

If you would like to offer treaty conditions that would induce me to move, I will hear them. My couriers are at the ready to relay messages. That goes for both of you.

"Land combat is one of the most effective manners of warfare. I prefer to build that up before I focus on naval powers. Now, I would be open to treaties, but you would have to offer more than just letting yourself move your tiny little ship away, Ms. Antiquity."
but if i'm never your hero
i can never let you down

"Now. Unless the robot has anything to say, should we declare this meeting adjured?"
but if i'm never your hero
i can never let you down

If the representative of the Mechanicus Imperium would like to speak up, they should do it. If not, I agree. I have no need to continue this meeting further.

... I have nothing to say on the matter, so please... let's not waste any more time with this.
I don't understand any of this... I'm in a world of complete insanity...
Nothing to annotate, but with the departure of my predecessor, I do have plenty of newspapers that I was instructed to put here. The rest of the original report has not been cleared for my viewing, but I have been able to look at many source documents.

Incidentally, big news recently relating to this, Yaw Sangui has fled Mali-Akania after a failed coup attempt, and then disappeared. Perhaps he's wherever EPE went in the immediate aftermath of the Gladwell Assassination? I don't know what I'm supposed to write here, no one sent me anything to annotate.

Negotiation Phase is Now! It ends on the 3rd of November (probably a little later than that in practice) or sooner if everyone agrees.
"Well. If any of you have a problem, feel free to announce it. Who knows, maybe it will be something worth hearing."

Alexandra has been intently playing with a chess-board, an ornate one with hand-carved horses. All the pieces are horses of different kinds, with a large stallion in a crown standing in for a king and a crowned mare standing in for a queen. She's been shuffling the horses around busily. Her bodyguard is playing against her.

...Hmmm?

Oh, yes. Ahem. I got a bit distracted. No excuse. No excuse.

In any case, I am quite content with things as they are, for the meantime. If anyone else has something they would like to discuss, however, my lines of communication are open.

If you would like to play a game of chess, perhaps we can even talk shop over it. Not that you're a bad player, Miles. That last sentence is said to her bodyguard.

I found a thing in the archives, no newspapers really caught my eye this time. Looks like an interview? Maybe it's worth a look.

Combat phase lasts until the 10th at minimum, but get your moves in at the soonest convenience. It is a fall phase, after all.
The New Macedonian Empire:

The NMES Ares bombards the Coastal Quarries*, encountering only token resistance from the disorganized AFDRO militia in the area.
The NMES Nemesis holds in Chylenbol, crushing any further resistance.
The Modern Calvary Unit in the Forester's Home supports an invasion by the Modern Calvary in Luzhi Valley into the Obychinzk Steelworks*, Support: 2 against the Tank Brigade of the Disorganization for Special Interests, which is unprepared and easily driven back from the vital factory. Support: 1.
The Modern Calvary Unit in the Innlands Excavation* enters the Luzhi Forest*, and finds things eerily silent around the well-stocked ammunition dump.
The Modern Calvary Unit in The Gardens* takes the Presidential Palace. President Duopolin had already evacuated to the Arzutzk Government District, however.

The Coastal Quarries, Obychinzk Steelworks, Chylenbol, and Luzhi Forest all fall to the New Macedonian Empire, who can now build three(!) units and maintain up to four more.

The Increasingly Disorganized Organization for Special Interests of Obychinzk:

The ONV Tangiers sails into the open ocean, and is scuttled by its crew due to supply limits. The crew who haven't starved escape to other shores.
The Tank Brigade in the Tank Depot holds, far too hopeful for their chances.

The Mechanicus Imperium:

The Mechanized Infantry Unit in Inner Autarkia moves to the Exurbs of Arzutzk, with the support of the unit in Outer Arzutzk.
The ONV Prebisch sails out into the Bay of Arzutzk.
The ONV Nyerere holds.
The Mechanized Infantry unit in Ladrynopol* Holds.

AFDRO under Elatain Dupolin barely holds on to the Northern Prisons when a Liberation Team tries to break through from the Northern Desert! (Support: 1 Vs Support: 1)

The Legion for the Light of Liberty:

The Liberation Team in Freedale Ridge enters Freedale Hook*. The region does not resist the incursion.
The SS Liberty in the Strait of Leveforth holds.
The Liberation team in Port Midland moves to the Desert Oilfields.
The Liberation team in the Peninsula has a wild party as it continues to hold.
The Liberation team at Oasis* was going to go to the Northern Desert, but it doesn't because only one unit can occupy a space at a time.

The Legion for the Light of Liberty has captured Freedale Hook, and can build one additional unit.

The Alatanian-Backed Separatists hold.

Send in those unit build requests, those of you who can build units!
The New Macedonian Empire launches the NMES Khalji from Grychak, and builds Modern Calvary Units in the Inner Farmlands and Grychak Industrial.

The Legion for the Light of Liberty launches the SS Peacemaker from Port Midland.

Get moves in by the 25th!
The New Macedonian Empire:
The NMES Khalji Holds.
The NMES Ares Holds.
The NMES Nemesis tries to move to the Southlander Coast Roadways from the West Coast of Chylenbol*, but that is impossible, so instead they have a wild party. (Chylenbol*'s Western Coast does not connect to the coast of the Roadways.)
The Modern Calvary unit in the Inner Farmlands moves to Chylenbol North*.
The Modern Calvary unit in Grychak Industrial moves to the Innlands Excavation*.
The Modern Calvary unit in Luzhi Forest* moves to Arzutzk Forest.
The Modern Calvary unit in Forester's Home holds.
The Modern Calvary unit in the Presidential Palace holds.
The Modern Calvary unit in the Obychinzk Steelworks* holds.

The Disorganization for the Special Interests of Obychinzk:
The Tank in the Tank Depot holds, hoping for a miracle.

The Mechanicus Imperium:
The Mechanized Infantry unit in Outer Arzutzk is convoyed by the ONV Nyerere across the Strait of Arzutzk to Olychia, with the support of the ONV Prebisch, and AVENGES THE BATTLE OF HAVAR BEACH, sinking the ANS General Zhnyasrov! Support: 2 vs Support: 1
The Mechanized Infantry unit in the Arzutzk Exurbs moves to the Arzutzk Suburbs.
The Mechanized Infantry unit in Ladrynopol* holds.

President Duopolin's AFDRO holds, and continues evacuations.

The Legion for the Light of Liberty focuses on suppressing unrest or something, and holds. (No orders received by deadline)

The Alatanian-Backed Separatists panic, but hold all the same.

The New Macedonian Empire builds a New Modern Calvary unit in Grychak Industrial.

No documents were included by my predecessor for this season, nor did I find the report worth annotating. [Not your place to judge.] I think it very plain what happened here. Very little of note can be found during this particular time that is not obvious from troop movement records, though of note is that several individuals who would later become notable left the country at this time in one of the last few immigrant waves spurred by the war.

Also, the sinking of the ANS General Zhnyasrov did in fact reveal that the Mechanican navy was using technology that they by all accounts shouldn't have had, specifically in targeting systems which had previously been restricted to the three powers. This implies that either Sangui or Evans was attempting to empower Dreissler's own initiative, which was ruined by the activation of a particularly notorious bit of software that took over much of the initiative. We have found compelling evidence (though of course, it was obvious) that Dreissler was entirely unable to control it once it activated, apparently because the manual was accidently included in a pile of files to be destroyed.

Get those moves in by midnight pacific on the 10th!
