An invitation was sent via human couriers to the four corners of the earth, to every power encountered on the explorer's path. To meet with a new sovereign power that was emerging on the coast of North America near the Virginia Territories. The couriers carried a simple request. Please send a representative of your state with information about your state and its culture. The place of convention shall be the former territory of the District of Columbia in front of the old U.S. Capitol building where you will be greeted by our combined head of state and government. The city has been renamed New Dragonisia and you may arrive at the Dragonisia International Airport. All representatives are encouraged to bring their own personal security, though we will also provide for safe passage and diplomatic immunity and safety as with traditional conventions (and here came the disturbing part) to this world. The Press of all nations was also welcome to attend the event and there would be no restriction on journalistic freedom.

Mog[Corp] would send a delegation to be decided at arrival time, and sent a care package with several variants of alcohol along with a few other gifts particularly suited for the hosts. A single diplomatic note would be sent with the group, directed towards the highest level of government.

"Hello again,

It has been ages, or perhaps no time at all. It's hard to tell with the multiple worlds we inhabit after all. I hope we can find the time to have a more lengthy conversation regarding our current status and future plans. You have been both a worthy adversary and an opponent, and regardless of which way our relationship in this particular timeline goes I hope we can remain friends, even if we happen to destroy one another. I don't have the time to be my own diplomat, but I will send someone familiar in a new suit capable of ensuring an entertaining gala.

-Mogar

Maelstrom read the reply and raised an eye-ridge. So his wasn't the only people to escape the fate of the prior worlds. He penned the letter personally in the High Dragonic that Mogar's interpreters would easily be familiar with by now.

 

Quote

Ah, Mogar,

It is actually refreshing to see a familiar face here. I consider our relations at a blank slate in terms of our plans for this world. After all, no reason to hold grudges from an entire other mirror universe that's fallen to tatters. I'd prefer be your friend on this battlefield and off this time around, assuming we can tolerate each other.. which I'm pretty certain I could tolerate you well. However, I know my own chaotic dispositions, as do you, so it is up to you. We know each other's natures, what say we put them to good use? Give peace a chance? I mean at least this time we're not fighting for border territories. We could probably substantially assist each other given our positions on this new world. Send your diplomat, your promises intrigue me. By the way, keep the other world leaders in the dark. You know I love a grand entrance.

Regards,
Maelstrom,
Emperor of the Dragon Empire

Prussia will send a Royalist to the Lizard Kingdom with the best of the best guards of the Totenkopf Divisiln. The Royal would be sent with respect to be given to the Nation,  it was not to be any person to arrive there,  the Royal was Kaiserin Victoria herself. Following her,  excluding the guards will be presents made of the finest tobacco. It was essentially a Fruit Basket,  but in it were things opposite of fruit. 

Before the Arrival of any Prussian person on the Lizard Lands the Kaiser sent a message personally to the leader,  translates by the courier. 

[Before Translation] 

"Greetings from the Prussian Monarchy.  I am Kaiserin Victoria herself,  the leader.  Pretty selfexplanitory rofl. I'll attend with my Guards via individual aircraft and make a soinptaniuous entrance.  See you soon.

Greetings sultan,

Please make sure to arrive at the former Ronald Regan Washington National Airport. Your flight will receive an escort once you enter our air-space. Don't worry. They won't eat you.

Regards,
Maelstrom Vortex
Emperor of the Dragon Empire.

 

As their flight would approach Dragonisian Airspace a couple of very large dragon-shaped aircraft would pull up along side of them, with windows near the front that had.. giant eyes peering out at them. They would be escorted along the pre-desginated flight route. Any deviation might result in an incident.

A delegate from Lumia was sent to the Dragon Empire by a long distance jet. There would be a team of scientists and sociologists, who were eager to study this new society. A message was also sent, welcoming the dragons to Orbis, and expressing hopes of friendship.

The delegation from Lumia would be welcomed in like manner as the delegation from Prussia. All would be gathered at the airport to begin a motorcade to the heart of the former District of Columbia.

The planes flown towards the Lizard Kingdom is codenamed - Drache [Dragon in German]. They are mostly bright stuntplanes with a lot of decoration on them. With the conformation of the Lizards, the planes of Prussia were allowed to peform stunts. They flew across the sky being followed by the escorts and formed the Prussian Flag. After all of the fancy things peformed by the pilots, they landed on an airstrip  alongside the escorts. The people whom exited were Victoria and her Guards still in Pilot uniforms, helmets and other gear, all in grey. They talked to the escorts on the location of stay for the visitors from Prussia and what the plan is for meetings, talks and most importantly, buisness dinner

The humans that met them on the ground as part of the diplomatic delegation provided the hotel passes they would need. Indicated the meeting would take place at a conference center near the capitol building lawns, and that dinner would be provided there as well with a number of items to choose on the buffet and drinks would be provided as well. Unfortunately, there were no Prussian brews currently because there were no formal trade relations with Prussia yet, but they hoped to change that soon. Thus far these were lower level diplomats and organizers. They were to meet the heads of state and the diplomats at the Capitol. 

"We would have had it that the Emperor himself would have greeted everyone who arrived here.. but.. his presence actually endangers those present in the airspace so he stayed at the capitol."

Given it appeared few others were going to show up for the meeting.. the caravan with representatives from Mogtopia, Prussia, and Lumia was assembled. They began to drive through DC. as they did they could see changes already in the works in the city. At one corner people were registering for Imperial citizenship and registering up for the mandatory 1-2 years of military service required by all citizens of the Empire where required.

On another the homeless were being moved into a jobs center where they were having skill evaluations performed and either assigned to career re-education, referred to psychological care, or if they were very elderly, moved into government provided housing.  Course, the attendants would just see the lines of them being handled with care. The Imperial banner was waving everywhere.

They were escorted by human police officers and body guards who looked like your normal secret service, though their lapel pins had the same symbols as the imperial flag. As they made it down to the national mall and the front lawns of the capitol, they would see seating had been arranged outside due to the beautiful weather and a conference style table was setup and attended with a host of foods for their guests. The conference table was notably round.. giving no member present any favored seating. At the end of the table.. there was a place notably empty of any chairs.

The ambassadors to their nations would show them to  their seats and all sit on the side of the table next to the void, flanking it on both sides.

Off to the side a military band was in attendance and in uniform that was similar to the old US Marine corps, but done up primarily in blues and golds. They began to play the Dragonisian National Anthem. The Empire's flag was hefted over the meeting space.. which signaled the arrival of their head of state.

Overhead flew a fighter wing of smaller dragon like craft, escorting a very large dragon shaped aircraft.  There was strangely no sonic booms though they were traveling well faster than the speed of sound. The 4 escorts broke off in all cardinal directions and the center craft went into a vertical stall. The cockpit appeared to bend from the front of the craft at a 40 degree angle downard. As it fell from the sky just short of the meeting space, its wings suddenly lost their rigidity and became sail-like. Catching the wind.. the large craft lowered landing.. no wait.. those were legs. With a horrible glide ratio, it came to a stop with a heavy *thud* right at the end of the table. There were several more clicks and its arms came away from its side. Those arms ended in claws which were covered by a metal gauntlet with clear junctions for screws and bolts and katana sharp talons. The talons made a 'shink'ing sound as they slid back some into a blunted sheath. It then reached up, then sound of more bolts unlocking were heard and it separated the lower nose of the helmet from its visor. Inside, a cloud grey dragon with luminous blue eyes gazed at them and spoke in very rough, but deep bass and almost thunderously loud, English.

"Greetings, representatives from this Earth. I am Maelstrom, Emperor of Dragonisia, the empire of Dragons. I am pleased you elected to attend. Please, might I have your names and sovereign nations or entities of origin?" It settled back onto its haunches, it had to be at least 12 meters long from its tail tip to its snout.

A press corps sat off in the distance and was broadcasting the meeting to the world. The secret was out. The Earth had new occupants.

Victoria stood up, with full of pride and patriotism,  the same way she talked about the nation,  said "My name is Kaiserin Victoria of Prussia, former member of the Light Cavalry otherwise known as Prussian Hussars,  and with the best of the best of the Hussars are escorting me. Chances are that the Prussian Kanzelor will arrive to the meeting with Royal Guards and a Marching Band. It is a pleasure to meet you. Now commenting on something I've talked before,  not sure if it was an associate of yours,  employee or you yourself,  but the topic was that there was no Prussian Food here. I'd like to stay so,  and we only eat, drink,  smoke and other Prussian Food,  Drinks and Tobacco. I don't mean this as disrespect, but as Respect to our nation and we don't usually share our foods to the outside world. We've brought a small plastic packet with a bit of food from Prussia. Well we've brought a few but that is for us to be eaten. One is for you. Not many usually get this." she sat back down,  took a wine glass and tasted it. As she was doing all of that,  people in black and white with some gold parts on them like a belt goinf across their torso brought in food in small plastic packets. One walked up to the King and put it in front of him,  while others put them on the table in front of the Kaserin,  and the National Heroes from the Hussars. 

Upon the Arrival of the continous Prussian Delegates,  they were escortred in to the dinnertable. He wore a Pickelhaube, a helmet used before in the Prussian army and a Dark outfit considred just as traditional wear. The Band wore Hussar outfits as well to match in the others. They were getting ready to play their song as soon as they got the green light.

"I see you have brought music accompaniment. Not many bring a whole band." He dismisses the Imperial band. "I think I shall favor international music this evening since you have done so. Welcome, Kaiseren. If he does come, we shall make room. I take no offense to your dining elections. More for me." He gave a low chortle as he waited for the rest to introduce themselves.

"I am Daryl Walters, a senior delegate of the Lumian Republic. We are a prosperous democratic republic, and I am honoured to stand here today to make first contact with your species and civilisation. We hope that we will be able to forge a common path towards greatness. As a gift from our nation, I hand you a sapling. As it matures into a strong tree, so too will our friendship."

Maelstrom looked around and at the very edge of the lawn was the grounds keeper who had arranged the whole out-door gathering. He waved the man over. "Take this. Plant it on one of the un-shaded portions of the White House lawn. Give it a plaque designating it as the Lumian tree of friendship so that visitors know what it is and put a protective cordoning fence around it." The grounds keeper moved forward to accept the sapling. His talons were so sharp.. and the sapling so small, Maelstrom feared touching it for snapping it in twain so he let his human counterparts handle it for him.

The representative from Mog Corp would be permitted to speak and introduce themselves if they wished.

The MoG[Corp] diplomat was Bulan Chance, a career diplomat well versed in the majority of the nations represented. Of course the hosts were a new one to her but in a world like this it was not anything incredibly out of the ordinary. Taking a moment to choose as neutral of English as possible, "The corporation extends its warmest regards, and looks forward to working with everyone upon this newly changed planet. To that end, we'd like to open up a diplomatic channel to establish technology sharing of renewable and alternative energy sources, while also providing whatever fossil fuels you may require." With a glance to one of the several forgettable bodyguards who held a briefcase, "The CEO also felt a personal gift was appropriate," She said as she opened the case and spun it around on the table.

Maelstrom raised an eye ridge and asked the grounds keeper to open the briefcase for him as.. well.. huge.. talons.. and gauntlets, do not bode well for fine manipulation.

The dragon continued as the groundskeeper worked to open the case for him, "As many of you know this was once a seat of a government for one of the human powers. We have discovered this in our archives of the history of this place. I've decided to preserve it.. mostly as is. The human side of our operations will be conducted from here as it has historically. You will find, in time, so I may as well say now.. that my species prefers high and secluded places.  Most of us will reside in the blue ridge mountains. You will all be given a means of contacting me by phone. But none of you shall know where I reside, no offense, just a matter of my own personal security. In time I will probably come to trust most, if not all of you as I determine your natures and then perhaps that information will be more forthcoming. Most contact with you and your people will be conducted through my ambassadors. Simply because.. well.. I don't fit well in your structures. Beyond myself, we have a representative Imperial Council who oversees the affairs of the state and an Imperial Judiciary. They are a mixed group between dragon kind and humanity. So, now that that is out there.. as my guests, I will let you go first. What do you wish to know about me or the society to which I belong?"

The Dragon paused for a moment at the question, "A very broad question. Our society is a tapestry of individuals of many different values, only of which the most violent and detrimental to the whole oppressed. Even as Emperor, I would take much in the way of liberties to speak for my entire brood. Personally I value friendship, knowledge, camaraderie, and integrity. Progress in our society is typically governed by a merit based system, an economy of prestige. But the next drake might want to set the world on fire."

With a slight pause considering what to say next, he continued, "What sealed my throne is my ability to lead, a position trusted to my family for generations and for which I was uniquely groomed among my peers. You'll find our people tend to specialize, different bloodlines capable of different feats. It's almost to the point we have diversified into multiple sub species and you can tell what we were born for merely by shade of scale. We tend to put our gods first, family second, and the state or general welfare last in general in terms of our priorities. Your question is so illuminating, I would ask the same of you. What are your values?"

We, like you, also value friendship, knowledge and integrity. Our nation rose in the aftermath of a devastating nuclear war, so we're also strongly committed towards peace. We're a scientific society, so we strongly value progress and curiosity. I can already tell have much in common.

"We would be happy to send a representative. I'll have one of our silvers assigned to your embassy along with his support staff." he nodded to the apparently very late arriving delegation from Salazarstan.  

"There are some things to note that may be unusual to you and your societies. Here, bipeds are not permitted to fly unless it is by aid of a dragon. We will, of course, exempt foreign airlines who choose to operate at our hubs. This law has been in place since the war of Peril during which our race was almost driven to extinction. You will find no human pilots in our society for this reason. We do have a space program however, which permits a very select, elite, and specially chosen few to fly in order to take advantage of their low mass bodies."

He nodded to Rep. Walters. "I agree. I think we do share a lot in common and have a lot to offer each other. The more I appreciate your presence today. If any of you have any drafts or proposal power, my people have entrusted me totally with treaty management. I know it make take some of your nations time to clear your documents by your representative bodies, but we have nay that limitation in this realm."

The grounds keeper got the box open and brought it tom Maelstrom. Inside was a dagger made of some form of meteorite or asteroid material. Maelstrom smiled and looked to Chance, "You may tell the CEO that her gift is much appreciated. She knows my affections well." He quietly put the dirk in a compartment of his suit where he kept side arms. He'd study it later and scan it to make sure nothing inside was some form of bug.

"I'm not so sure he will be pleased to meet me." Thessen stated, "I have few flattering words for him from our lands. Our Emperor has been researching his interactions with this world and he is not pleased. However, eating would be nice before this undoubtedly difficult encounter will begin.."

##Meanwhile back in Washington##

The Emperor looked to the assembled delegates, "In the coming days the embassy district that was once globally renown in this region will be open for service. Each of your nations will be given a place in it. We will be contacting you with the addresses. What you do with it after is up to you."
