    The Invasion of Orbis by the Star Dragon Empire of Dragonisia

    ##Nuclear Launch Detected!## Claxons sounded and Maelstrom looked a monitor and smiled. "Someone STILL knows how to fight!" "Inbound ICBM from the nation of Champions." A computer voice blared. "Target?" Maelstrom inquired. "Neo Francograd." The ai chirped. "Sirens sounded?" He continued. "Bunker warnings have been issued." "Time to intercept?" "Insufficient. Suggest to stay in place. Enemy is under heavy ground assault. Their forces are crumbling. They are desperate.. this is likely their last gasp." Maelstrom looked extraordinarily disappointed, "Already?" "Yessir. The Alliance's strike teams are just to efficient." It chirped. "Glory hounds." Mael sat back continuing to eat pop corn as he quietly watched his nation at war. Their orders issued, all he could do was watch and wait to respond as needed.

    Furyion inquired, "Maelstrom, brother.. you have stopped giving out announcements and telling the people of our wars and great achievements. Why is this?" Maelstrom looked off into the distance at burning lands and fields over the horizon through the virtual reality screens around him in the command center of the Empire. Total Scorched Earth procedures were being followed. "In the beginning there was resistance.. and the stories were grand, heroic.. if inevitably pre-determined.. but now.. it just saddens me. It has become a curb stomp. I have begun to pity our enemy." Furyion looked down, "Oh." "Hopefully they will see wisdom soon and spare themselves total destruction."

    Furyion walked in and looked to Mael, the new years fireworks were going on outside. "Maelstrom.. it would be my pleasure to take your first order for this new year and new era on Orbis.. what is your wish?" "Send the people of Great Isle a new years present..." Maelstrom smiled... For a moment, Furyion was confused, "But we're fighting them." "I meant bombs... as present." Maelstrom gave a semi-malevolent grin.

    Despite the earlier hiccups the war resulted in a favorable outcome with the enemy having taking a severe shelling by the restocked navy. Dragonisia took a couple more missiles, but overall had come out on top. Maelstrom grumbled, "We need to do something about those missiles once the war is over. The nukes are fine, I'll eat those all day, but the missiles are just plain annoying." Furyion tapped his jaw. "I have some ideas, but we can't build them while the potential for war looms." Maelstrom nodded, "Use whatever R&D resources you need to bring me Autocad drafts of the designs our engineers and scientists develop.We'll start looking into the construction." Science Minister Yflek was a gnome who had also been in the court at the time addressed the general, "I'll lend you whatever help I can. I've a couple of teams spare who aren't picking apart enemy equipment." Furyion didn't like the thought of having to deal with gnomes, but they had natural engineering talent. "Very well."

    The Invasion of Orbis by the Star Dragon Empire of Dragonisia

    The war was proceeding as expected. Maelstrom absorbed a nuke as it struck New Trismus, the city suffered as the Emperor gained strength. Nevertheless he would spend that energy rebuilding. There was just one minor hiccup. The navy shelled the coast of Aenir for days, reducing blocks to rubble in the enemy's manufacturing and commercial centers. Azure, head Leviathan of the navies came to see Maelstrom at the hearth-hall a day after the attack on New Trismus, "We have a small logistics issue sir." "What? Logistics.. we normally run flawlessly where that is concerned.. what happened?" Azure took his hat off and looked a bit nervous. "We ran out of ammo in the last battle." "You what?" "I'm sorry, your Majesty. I thought we had enough forward supply, but the tankers and support ships holds were empty in the last assault. We were fairly ineffective at the strike. We need to resupply." Maelstrom just rubbed his brow in frustration. "Oh good Drulkar.. fine.. bring the fleet back to resupply and be more ready next time. I'll send to the Order for additional munitions. Do this again and I'm sending you back to your lair at coral station for early retirement. Am I understood?" "Very Clearly, sir I appreciate the second chance." The blue scaled amphibious dragon bowed out nervously. "Fury, what do I need to do to get new help these days?" the Emperor grumbled. Furyion just shook his head as he sat at a table nearby eating his dinner in the hearth-hall. "I would suggest putting the joint command under me and crap like this will not happen. "Sorry Fury, much as I trust you that'd break with Imperial traditions. The military branches must be separate but collaborative to prevent too greater concentration of power." Fury sighed, "Then.. you deal with the bureaucracy.. it's all you can do I suppose." Maelstrom snorted a huff.

    11/3/2018 - Geography Update Implementation

    Can we add ocean nations.. with a kelp bonus to food and perhaps oil as a resource due to calthrates, or I guess you could get iron below the sea floor.

    Furyion handed the dispatch to Maelstrom, "Next target has arrived. It's BEPU of Aenir. The only advantage they have on us is troops" Maelstrom snorted, "Do a courtesy once over of their soldiers as a salute and then go to full naval bombardment." "They're also nuclear armed," Fury added. "Tell me of any detected trajectories." His brother nodded, "Won't you like like.. eventually explode internally for eating those thinngs?" Fury canted his head. "I mean I'm the fire dragon here.. you're the fricken storm dragon. How are you eating more nukes than me!?" "Black hole for stomach." "Uh.. huh... alright then." "Maelstrom within a maelstrom.. it makes perfect sense you know it. Maelception." Furyion just shook his head, "That's just.. bad." Maelstrom handed a letter to the imperial courier.

    The Invasion of Orbis by the Star Dragon Empire of Dragonisia

    Maelstrom quietly oversaw the rebuilding of his military between the wars. The last one with the "Warrior Princess" had gone as planned. They had eaten a few missiles, but nothing excessively severe as a nuke as in the last war. Quietly, the Emperor roamed among the rubble of his cities, helping coordinating temporary housing for the displaced. "Do not worry. Your sacrifices are not in vain. We are prevailing. Pacifica will win the greater war." His majestic form brought hope to the populace.. there had been wide broadcasts of him devouring the nuke that had struck the nation in the last war. The images had been caught from security and weather cameras from beyond the city and the blast. The Dragon Cult had gained many new follower among the bipeds with the worship of Maelstrom as the state incarnate taking a new fever pitch. The Planeswalker Wyrm knew, however, that he was not a god of any sort.. but did not care to dissuade them either. He returned to his throne in Dragonisia city after having seen to the housing of the displaced, building plans prepared for the post-war period. Advisors took instruction on every detail of the reconstruction of the cities. Every detail was scrutinized and micromanaged. They weren't just going to rebuild.. they were going to further perfect. That was Maelstrom's method, every blank slate is an opportunity for new creation. The top soil in Liak was scoured and the top inch removed, stuffed into barrels.. and put in a mountain bunker storage center. Other top soil was shipped in.. to more quickly reduce the area's radiation. Furyion stood by Maelstrom's side, "Any idea who our next target will be?" He inquired. The Emperor, jaw resting on fist shook his head as he rested on his throne. "At the rate we get them we may not have another.. but I wait word from the Order's central command as to our next action. So far it's been quiet. I've heard peace is being negotiated." Furyion hrmmed, "Seems like a fairly short conflict." Maelstrom shrugged, "Just breeding ground for another if it's not sufficient in its results. We shall see."

    IT'S LIKE A TIME LOOP

    It never fails.. *laughs* Arbitrary nation RPs just don't work among non-clique groups. Only is successful among centralized groups of friends with an extreme level of trust, an intent on story-writing and not competition. Even then it can strain.. One day you folks will learn to embrace the game itself as cannon.. then maybe.. just maybe,.. you'll have fun.

    All three of the above are true. Here is what I think the solution would be that makes everyone happy: 1. A cost must be paid for all war-dodgers.. intentional or not. 2. That cost can be paid by the war-dodger or the alliance collectively at their discretion. They know who has and who has not been a coward more than anyone and it should be at the discretion of the alliance of which the war dodger is a member as to who pays the toll, they collectively.. or the war-dodger personally. This solves the dilemma of war-dodgers not being accounted for and allows the alliance host to treat the war dodgers on a case by case basis internally.

    You are correct, it doesn't force it, but it allows the organization of compliance. A document prevents misunderstanding and thus re-conflagration. it sets guidelines and clarifies terms.You have to operate more on trust, you have to come to mutual understanding and different cultures and dialects and cultures often have different terminology for the same meaning or words with more than one meaning. When it comes to ending a war properly in a means meant to fully settle it and prevent reconfiguration among a large set of bodies, while trust may work on one to one, the document will be a superior implement simply in regards to broadly accepted terminology and communication. Treaties have value. What usually happens when there is no document is that the peace does not last as long as either party intends over some simple misunderstanding resulting in a total re-conflagaration of hostilities and both sides then point at each other. The fault usually lies with the poorest communicator. A document that is well written and established and agreed upon, prevents that occurrence and limits the potential shuffling of blame. I respect that you want to govern based on relationships. I've done such before. I've also know what that kind of governing leads to. People can, and do.. use it as a weapons by intentionally misinterpreting terms to their advantage. I think everyone wants to avoid that here.

    Greetings again Princess of War, Last time we met it was on a battlefield. I think your concern is the stigma associated with dodging a war. I think no such stigma need attached to the term. There are a number of reasons war dodging may have occurred, cowardice being only one of many possibilities including issues affecting the personal lives of various heads of state that prevented their participation. But the truth is, whatever the reason, they dodged the war... thus the title is accurate. Regards, Maelstrom
