Holy germanic states

The Mass relay has been brought fully online with its destinations have been finally mapped out. A flotilla of 3 Odinson-class corvettes have been sent to scan a nearby system.

The ships readied themselves as the mass relay mapped the route. Only a moment later, the route was ready and the ships were flung into FTL travel.

Junlandt wrote:The enemy ship, although limping like a wounded animal, was not defenceless. Its manouver away from the flotilla brought the group into the firing solution of a second beam weapon which scored hits against one of the Fury class Cruisers and destroyed two of the Blade class Corvettes that were retreating. This turret was also destroyed by the precise gunnery of the Arlekian flotilla: better still, the Species 6 ship's propulsion systems appeared to have been badly damaged with several of its engines now offline and others flickering.

Ha'l-ar decided to put his ships on the offensive and ordered a pursuit, not retreat. The Arlekian ships still fired from significant range (approx 15,000km) as it was uncertain what the effects of the lightning defence weapon would be on capital ships.

The flotilla moved through the debris of the remains of thousands of Species 6 boarding pods that were torn apart by point defence cannon and bombarded the enemy ship again...

Volley after volley of Heavy and Medium MAC rounds scored hits on the huge enemy ship until it appeared that it had lost propulsion entirely. To capture this vessel would be an immense prize for the Arlekians but even if every Jemn Hadar from every ship was sent aboard, the sheer potential number of Species 6 on board may overwhelm them. They had proven themselves a more than worthy adversary in the last confrontation so Commodore Ha'l-ar gave no cease fire order. In fact he ordered the arming of more 'Hammer of Gods' missiles in preparation of a killing stroke when a small ship was observed leaving the stricken vessel.

Only being the size of a Dropship and cleverly leaving via an airlock on the far side of the listing vessel, it was almost missed. Commodore Ha'l-ar instead ordered fighters to scramble and pursue this vessel. Their objective was to cripple it but if it was destroyed, so be it.

Meanwhile the flotilla fired all armed missiles at the massive ship. This time; instead of being swatted away by the energy defence system, 52 multi-megaton warheads tore into the ship and atomised it in a blinding flash. Cheers went up on the bridge of the Gladiator as the few small surviving sections of ship were immediately tracked. These could be secured and brought back for study.

Meanwhile, the Archangel fighters began their pursuit...

Meanwhile, the Archangel fighters began their pursuit...

The enemy shuttle had made for the asteroid field, presumably to try and lose any pursuers. The Archangel fighters were much faster than the shuttle, however and closed the distance just as the asteroid field began.

The fighters broke into pairs and began maneuvering their way through the small field. A couple of fighters had to turn back with impact damage - one with just one engine after only minutes. However, a pair of fighters managed to get the drop on the shuttle and engaged.

The lead fighter fired a short burst that crippled one of the shuttle's engines but only before a turreted beam weapon lanced its way towards the fighter, destroying it in one shot. The wingman was a veteran from the previous encounter with Species 6. There, she had survived many bombing runs against a capital ship and engaged several of the fighter / pods.

She took position behind the shuttle and 'dumb fired' a hypersonic missile at just 1500m. At this range the missile couldn't aquire its target but that's what she counted on. The port rear turret exposed itself to fire at the missile and as it did so Lt Bala'I-ta fired at the turret. The turret must have been manually operated as a Species 6 'arm' flew past and some blue blood smeared on her forward screen.

The shuttle lurched itself to starboard to give the starboard rear turret a clear firing solution. Instinctively, Bala'I-ta fired her Archangel's afterburners and banked past the shuttle on its port side; just as a beam seared past her fighter. She fired her braking thrusters while turning towards the shuttle, opening up with her cannons down the port side of the enemy ship, disabling its remaining engine.

They were now on the edge of the asteroid field but a small stray rock smashed into Bala'I-ta's starboard wing and engine. She shut it down immediately and signalled her position to the remaining squadron. She presumed that the starboard turret on the shuttle was out of operation due to power loss as she passed it several times while circling her quarry.

Within minutes several fighters arrived escorting a Dropship with a team of 50 Jemn Hadar on board. They would storm the shuttle and - where possible - capture any survivors. They would certainly secure the vessel for research purposes.

Meanwhile Bala'I-ta limped back to Gladiator having survived her second fight with Arlekia's most mortal enemy.

The History of the Revolution and the rise of Advanced Industrialism
Written by Anarchist Professor Slovei Rerthen

Long before the revolution, long before the birth of the terror that is Advanced Industrialism, our world was dominated by two states, both following capitalist mode of production. Both these states had taken capitalism to its natural extreme. Both were despotic, dystopic, hellholes where progress was dominated by profit and that the advance of the Elivon race (now known as Fomans) had all but stopped.

To the east lay an absolute monarchy ran by a dynasty of mad individuals. Cannibals, killers and the worst kind of leeches on the planet. They kept their regime from collapsing by making deals with private industry promoting monarch sponsored corporate imperialism and colonialism. It was made a law that only twelve businesses could control the means of production, small business owners were forced to give up their property or be killed, coops were abolished and torn down, and union members were executed in brutal acid baths. It was a never-ending age of pain.

To the west laid a "Republic" if it could be called that, which had originally escaped the grasp of the tyrants to the east but was soon engulfed in its own tyranny. After multiple economic collapses, and near uprisings, the highest capital interest in the nation backed a man known as Joen Westerfeld. A mad man who saw the only way to escape dystopia was through absolute embracement of the rich and powerful and complete destruction of the rich and powerful enemies. Once that man was elected he proceeded to quickly tear down the restrictions upon the role of President. He banned and locked up unions and had their leaders and members shot, created an education system that taught historical revisionism and preached the need for the rich. He had elections rigged and banned the opposition parties and had the opposition in his own executed. He had any reporters who criticized him locked up in mental institutions and finally privatized most of the government's duties and sold them off to the ones who backed him, the mad president even betrayed his own values destroying any corporation that was an enemy to him and his friends labeling them as "monarchistic subversives."

Logically the repression in these states couldn't last and the capitalist class which ruled both realized that, so they had behind the scenes implemented a policy of constant "war" between the two states. This war would constantly draft the proletariat into a war machine and make them fight each other in a war purposefully kept in a stalemate. This era of despair lasted thirty years, with the mad dynasty and the mad president being indistinguishable and both controlled by the capitalist class.

But no tyranny can last forever, and soon a marvel came. My religious colleagues suggest this was the doing of the Great creator, I say it was just extraordinary circumstance, but soon a series of revolutionaries and theorist were born. The most important, Maer Verborn, Serd Jaedin, Maie Moray and Jeroy Jemed had pioneered and developed the theories, of socialism, mutualism, syndicalism, and Anarchism. These four figures inspired more revolutionaries as they secretly spread there works across the factory floors and the trenches. The capitalist class did try to suppress them, they were wanted in both states, but they kept up making sure not to stay in one place too long and always had at least some militia guarding them.

Soon, popular discontent was boiling, Unions were growing in large. Workers were arming themselves, armories were being raided and the armies began to turn on their generals. The capitalist class got nervous and arranged a quick meeting between the mad dynasty and the mad president in the center of the capital. The city of Feri. Loyal divisions were called up to the defense and the plan was kept a secret, but there was a leaker. Soon the proletariat had gotten word that their oppressors had gathered in one spot, so the four original revolutionaries gathered the armed workers and the mutineers marched upon the city, the battle wasn't even close. An army of five million rebels easily outnumbered the garrison of 200,000 and the city was stormed and the oppressors captured and killed.

The uprising against capital had begun.

The remaining remnants of the former regimes and capital panicked, police and remaining loyal army members quickly tried to suppress the revolution but it was too late, soon the majority of the countryside and most cities in both countries had been overtaken by the revolution and it was only spreading. But capital wouldn't go down without a fight. The Two states one now ran by the weak vice president Gerome Seren, and the other regency council quickly surrender any illusion that these states had any independence from the capital, with the weak vice president signing a bill abolishing any government and putting the state under the management of the six largest corporations. The regency council soon was bought and replaced by the executives and chairmen of the imperial corporations.

Now it was blatantly clear capital was at war with the proletariat. Capital began using all the weapons they had built up during the war, they dropped chemical bombs. Thermonuclear devices, radiation bombs, flesh-eating pathogens, but nothing slowed the advance of the proletariat as they slowly closed there hand around capitals neck. Capital had to develop a plan before they found themselves on a chopping block. So in a secret meeting on the war, they designed a plan. What if they infiltrated the revolution?

The revolution was composed of many factions but the major was, Democratic Socialist, Social Democrats, Mutualist, Anarcho Communist, Libertarian Socialist, Council Communist, Anarcho-Syndicalist, the Villagist and finally the Vanguardist. The vanguardist was most recent addition, many of the Vanguardists were former managers and high ranking engineers and other mostly former petite bourgeoisie.

The Vanguardist philosophy was that a vanguard of the most intellectual would guide the people to equality. They also were ripe with opportunism with often Vanguardist battalions more then willing to defect if they were paid high enough, so capital contacted quite a few notable Vanguardist intellectuals most importantly Anar Foma who had questioned socialism in the first place. The financial backing pushed Anar Foma to write his own little charter known as the charter for Advanced Industrialism. We know what Advanced Industrialism has become today but it originally started out saying that the state instead of a vanguard would guide the revolution to equality, with further financial backing from capital many notable Vanguardist backed this new "Form of Equality." and created there own faction in the revolution known as the "Advanced Industrialist." many in the revolutionary committee which consisted of major parties, unions, and leagues of revolutionaries questioned advanced industrialism, but did not recognize capitals influence and just felt it was another form of vanguardism.

Slowly throughout the revolution, the Advanced Industrialists secretly worked with capital, to sabotage local elections to get advanced industrialist in. They purposefully sabotaged key battles and shifted the blame to other factions. Whenever they had captured any major figure of capital, that major figure would state they realize the mistake and "give" their industry to the state to march towards equality when in reality the next day that major member of capital would become a member of the faction and serve in the committee and return to his office on the factory floor. Slowly over the years, the Advanced Industrialists had gained enough power to hold 51% of the Committee. Capital put its plan in action, they immediately surrender to revolution and first ones in the major areas of the capital were the advanced industrialist militia.

the other factions were left confused that capital would willingly surrender even though it seemed they had a few more years left of the fight in them, then it happened. Advanced Industrialist battalions spread across the revolutionary territory and opened fire upon other factions Battalions, they broke up disloyal unions and killed many unions leadership. The Advanced Industrialists targeted many key revolutionaries including the original four and by the end of the week, most of the forces of the revolution were destroyed and the remaining had fled and sought refuge capturing as much of capitals weapons as they can.

In the next meeting of the committee, the Advanced Industrialist controlled 90% of the committee with the remaining 10% being of the various factions. A peace treaty was presented where capital would be absorbed into a new state and every member of capital would be put somewhere in the state new management but not high up in the management, this came to a surprise to many members, they assumed they be rulers in this new state. But with a physical gun to many of there's head, they signed it, feeling somewhat betrayed. the Committee passed the treaty with 90% support with the 10% opposing it because of its lightness on capital.

Then came the leadership elections, the 10% put up a candidate who they know would lose. The Advanced Industrialist put up Anar Foma. it was obvious who would win. After the elections were obvious with Anar Foma winning, a new constitution was crafted. What was crafted was the modern advanced industrialist constitution including its outlawing of trade unions. With Primiscent now having near unlimited power and with the creation of a new position known as the all-seeing tribunal to punish any "anti-ideological and anti-state" acitivites, it was clearly obvious now the revolution had been subverted.

So with the final meeting of the Committee finished they sung the Internationale, to be more accurate the 10% sung the Internationale the advanced industrialist and anar foma didn't even stand for it. So with the committee finished, the 10% was immediately arrested and the tyranny of the state descended upon the land, with the ban upon all other ideologies and especially the ban of socialism.

But hope wasn't lost as the exile army had finally found a home, a small remote island where they set up base recruiting anyone fleeing from the mainland.

Holy germanic states

The 3 corvettes has stumbled upon a new system when they were thrown out of FTL and back into real time. First thing they did was to turn on the relay and as way back to New Sol and when that was done they started to scan the new system. Their scan found nothing of value besides a planet with a few scattered mineral deposits on its surface with more potentially under the surface. The other planets were gas giants with little value but one had some landable moons orbiting it. The flotilla, done with their scans, packed with a new data to research, prepared to leap use the relay once again but a small garrison of a dozen individuals were left behind to continue exploring the relay and operate it when mining companies ventured out here to establish mining colonies. The 3 corvettes signed to the garrison they were ready and then they were sent off into FTL, back to New Sol and back to their new home.

Merry Christmas, and happy holidays!

Yeah. You're all thinking, "This'll never work."

That's exactly why I'm doing it.

You don't like me (probabl- okay, definitely).

But in the last four years, no one has fought as hard as I have to expose the blatant corruption of the World Assembly.

Hell, I sacrificed my reputation for it, and took my region with me.

    Why should forum drafting make or break a resolution?

    Why should a resolution's author be judged harder than a resolution's content?

    Why shouldn't you self-commend/condemn/liberate?

All this is dictated by the WA Elite. (Trust me, they do exist.)

I intend to, as I always have, put a stop to that.

Under a World Assembly I lead, the QUALITY OF A RESOLUTION will be ALL THAT MATTERS.

No more deceit. No more Elite.

No more bullsh*t.

Hi,

We've made a decision to close embassies with regions tagged as fascist.

Most people associate fascism with the horrors that occurred in the mid-twentieth century. You may have an eloquent argument that refutes this association, or that the brand of fascism you subscribe to is different. Nevertheless, rightly or wrongly, this perception is maintained by the majority, and the tag is seen as a symbol of hate.

By extension, by having embassies with your region, we are seen as endorsing hateful ideology. I'm sure you can understand that this is not the impression that we wish to give the wider world.

We will instruct the closure of our embassy shortly. Should you decide at any point in the future to remove this tag, we will be happy to consider re-opening embassies.

I'd like to thank you for having had an embassy with us.

Regards,

The Receptionist
