Visiting the Neighbours [Open; ATT: Icarus Faction & Dong Wu]

Recommended Posts

Ke'alohilani, Kawaikini Colonial Capital:

Earth; PW-2

 

With the establishment of rather extensive territorial claims in the Pacific region, the Kawaikini have successfully made their presence known on this blue world. Now, with the grand cities and metropolises bustling and growing with each passing day, it is time to look outward. This planet harbours many nations across its greater extent, and it can only be beneficial for Kawaikini's children to make official contact with at least some of these powers, large and small. Naturally those nations within their own sphere of influence are of greatest concern to them, and so with much haste diplomatic scouting parties are readied and initial observations are made. To the west stand Dong Wu, Taiyochi, and Amenria - all nations with land that hems in the ambition of the islanders. But to the south, between Kawaikini lands and those of the Icarus Faction, there is territory still untamed and savage.

 

A message is drafted and sent to Icarus Central:

 

"As you may know, we have recently arrived on this planet. We have built majestic cities and ports on the islands sprawling across the seas to your northern borders. Between us lies land untamed and savage. We would like to open negotiations to discuss the nature of a buffer zone in this region and potentially Kawaikini-Icarus relations beyond this. We will send the High Priest Hepualaha'ole to discuss these matters at once should you accept our offer."

 

In typical Kawaikini fashion it is blunt. A similar message is drafted and send to Dong Wu; the Wusian territory borders potential avenues for expansion, and it thus stands to reason that spheres of influence will need to be hashed out to prevent needless hostility.

Changsha, Capital of the Federation of Dong Wu

 

Earth, PW-2

 

Ministry of Foreign Affairs

 

A message was received.

 

And within short order, a reply was completed.

 

 

"As you may know, we have recently arrived on this planet. We have built majestic cities and ports on the islands sprawling across the seas to your northern borders. Between us lies land untamed and savage. We would like to open negotiations to discuss the nature of a buffer zone in this region and potentially Kawaikini-Icarus relations beyond this. We will send the High Priest Hepualaha'ole to discuss these matters at once should you accept our offer."

A similar message is drafted and send to Dong Wu; the Wusian territory borders potential avenues for expansion, and it thus stands to reason that spheres of influence will need to be hashed out to prevent needless hostility.

 

 

"Greetings, esteemed Kawaikini people.  The people of Wu are glad that you have reached out to us regarding this pressing concern.  We will welcome your delegation with open arms, and may we suggest your people meet ours at the Hangzhou International Airport?  The flight to Changsha is long, but Hangzhou lies much closer to your esteemed lands."

 

The Minister's aide sent the message with baited breath.  While there was no intention of contesting claims to the Phillippines or the Indonesian Islands, it was also unthinkable that anyone would believe Wu would engage in conflict over those distant lands.

 

As for Hangzhou, well, Taipei wasn't quite worthy enough to accept foreign dignitaries just yet...

The Kawaikini

 

From Dong Wu a reply is received. It is read at the colonial capital and a response is rapidly crafted. 

 

"Within a fortnight we will arrive at Hangzhou. High Priest Hepualaha'ole will come and with him a grand entourage will follow."

 

Within the city the High Priest's entourage begins to gather. A tall outrigger, with sails that reach skyward, is bedecked with rows of resplendent teeth and magnificent carvings. It is readied for the transit to Hangzhou and the High Priest oversees its preparation. Five ships, nearly as grand, are prepared to join it.
