A grin would form on his face, "Such a beautiful place, ah?" He continues, "I've always wanted to live here".
"I see, a lot has changed since my grandfather took me here" he continued speaking for now, "Ever been to Aldenbourg?"
They take mostly small regions, and they target regions that have no founders, because then the WAD has full powers. They do sometimes take bigger regions, but that's only done by huge military organizations like Lily or The Black Hawks, with occasional assistance from other militaries like The East Pacific Sovereign Army. For regions this big, people rely on Coup d'états instead of full on raids, because no one can field an army that big. In these coups, they gain the trust of the region and get endorsed by a bunch of people there usually infiltrating the government as some sort of Guardian or even the Delegate, and with a few friends that have done the same they hold the region. It is possible to counter this by doing campaigns like that of A Slanted Black Stripe and Daanistan during the 2008 Empire Coup or Marrabuk during the October 2019 Fedele Coup, but these are most likely done by the rightful government or else it is easy to fail.
"I suggest you not go there, for now at least"
”wife would Very likely force me to go when it clears up.” He explains
“She’s Convinced me to go with her on a trip to Sanada”
"Sanada? Where's that?" He chuckled "I'm sorry, friend. I don't know my geographies that well"
He laughed with him, "Big country, eh?" he replied
I'm thinking either Katerro or Katudio for my new name
OOC: Decided to respond now because where I am is 11:00 PM (or at least when I started writing), so today is tomorrow.
Cloudy. Skies upon the ambience and area are filled with God's dropped blankets, not letting his lamp shine upon a town where the good have realized he exists and worship him. A Sanquis Catholic man is pressing his two hands together, inside a place with divine lights supported by angels of lamps and a choir singing for peace upon the people of Dolorém. That man is named José Castrillón, he is a commander of a Serpie unit he is leading, he is praying to God for mercy, good luck and safety for him, people here, Hispania and his peasant family.
When a priest leads a singing, an advisor violently kicks the doors of the church that Castrillón is in. When he finds the commander, the advisor seems panicked, saying reports while trying to keep a calm tone.
- "Your gracious individual Castrillón, I have something to say, and it is not good." -
José Castrillón seemed a bit confused, but paused on praying. - "What is the news then?" -
- "We have spotted an army with seemingly black armor, they might be those Tyrists, and they are heading towards us." -
The commander Castrillón stands up. - "Those barbarians... let me gather the men. I pray to God that we defend ourselves." - He starts to walk from the seat of the church, leaving the place. The priest, who has heard the word 'barbarians', tells an order to ring the bells of the church, with monks doing so.
The General and Commander Castrillón of a Serpie unit yells at his men to pick up their arquebuses and swords, they oblige with the order, running to get said weapons. Eight hundred Serpie troops, with their gunpowder rifles and swords, start to go up to the walls' defensive positions, while twenty of other Serpie troops bring in ten cannons.
Bells in the town, including the church's, start ringing, alerting people and settlers about a barbaric Tyrist invasion. Dozens of non-Serpie units such as pikemen, crossbow users, swordsmen and some non-Seripe Arquebusiers gather around the city. When defensive men are ready, commander José Castrillón goes up the ladder to give a speech.
✟ - "ATTENTION, BRAVE MEN OF HISPANIA! - Yelled José. - "We are here in Dolorém to spread the message of Christ and the good! We will not let these dark age barbarians to interrupt our missions! We will not let these barbarians burn our settlements! We will not these DAMNED barbarians from the SHORES OF HELL disrupt our deliveries of wealth for the good people of Dolorém! We WILL repel these monsters! May God, Christ and the Divine light protect us from the devilish beasts." - Arquebusiers and Serpie units cheered, some started to pray before the Tyrists reached the range. ✟
