Polska-ruthenia

It was another bright and sunny day in Poland. The streets of Kraków were bustling with merchants and traders, and ships lined the streets. The massive walls of the city towered over most buildings, save for the occasional spire or castle. In Waszawa it was no different. The streets were filled with people, and all seemed well. To the West, on the farthest Western region of Polish claims, there was a small outpost near a larger fort. Activity was very usually quiet, and today seemed no different. However, little did they know, expansion was bringing the borders of Polska-Ruthenia and The Deutsche Reich together. It was only a matter of time before the peoples interacted: and whether or not the interaction would go peacefully remains to be seen.

- Byzantine Civil War: Breakthrough at Piraeus -

The City of the Violet Crown had fallen. With imperial fleet blockading the Athenian port of Piraeus for weeks, the rebel garrison waved the white flag of surrender. Similarly to the events in Cyzicus, the soldiers dragged out their rebellious general and presented him to Basil, the Crown Prince. Unlike in Cyzicus, Leo was not as forgiving to the rebel soldiers and had them all executed along with their general. By sunset, his troops had raised the imperial standard once again at the Acropolis. As if to signal the return of Attica into the imperial fold, the mountains in the backdrop appeared to be immersed in a purple haze.

Across the Gulf of Lepanto, more and more towns were declaring their allegiance to Emperor Romanos III. While the northern half of Morea was secured, the rebels continued to hold out in Mystra, the fortified town overlooking the ancient ruins of Sparta. Just like the area's previous inhabitants, these rebels will not be goin down without a fight. With Athens taken care of, Basil's army would now be making its way south for another grueling siege. As for the Imperial fleet, it has crossed the Aegean to link up with the forces of the Emperor himself to subdue the rebellions on the Asia Minor coast.

Annonce du Louvre

"Mi'Lord!"

A courtier in runs down the halls of the Louvre castle to the throne room.

"The Duke of Berry, Marquise of Nemours, and Duke of Limousine have broken off from the realm!"

The king looks calm and proclaims, "Rally the troops. We will meet them in battle by the week's end!"

The Kingdom of Frankish France is now at war to reconquer the southern provinces of Limousine and Berry.

Comunicasiòn Uficiàl dala Serenisima Repùblica de Venesia

His Most Serene Highness, Doge of Venice announce the final riestablishment of order in the mainland territories of the republic. With the integration of the Stati da Mar of Montenegro and Albania the Lion's realm has now reached it's maximum extent on mainland. We are completing the total reconstruction and renewal of our fleet to finally start a Colonial Empire. As the only surviving Merchant Republic we are open to establish trade with any nation interested in profiting from our business.

Polska-ruthenia

Letter from Kraków, Polska

Upon the meeting of the German and Polish borders, the sovereign nations of the Empire of Romisch-Deutsches Reich and the Commonwealth of Polska-ruthenia have mutually agreed to cease expansion East and West respectively in order to eliminate the chances of conflict. Polska-Ruthenia will now focus on its expansion Eastward and to the South, and will not conflict with its Western neighbor over territory.

The Sapmi people has decided that building boats will lead to success for the Viking Sapmi. They want to explore the wilderness of the world and challenge themselves. It will be a hard process and will take a lot of resources to build many big boats but it will be worth it.

- Byzantine Civil War : Triumph for Greece -

The siege of Mystras was long and arduous. The imperial forces gave the rebels everything they got. Trebuchets rained chaos on the the rebel fortress that overlooked the ancient ruins of Sparta. After 5 hours of bombardment, the southern wall finally collapsed. It was at that moment that the rebels sallied out for a last stand. With hopes of a surrender fading with each passing second, Crown Prince Basil gave the Cataphractoi the order to charge. One by one, the rebels were crushed under the hooves of the imperial cavalry, the survivors becoming easy pickings for the Varangians. By sunset, Mystras had returned to the imperial fold

Across the Aegean, the imperial fleet had liberated Heracleion, the capital of Crete, from rebel hands. With Morea, Crete and the Aegean Islands finally secured, the armies of the Basileus and the Crown Prince headed home to Constantinople. With the reconquest of Greece complete, the Byzantines will honor the victorious soldiers and generals with a triumphal march through the capital, a tradition that dates back to the earliest days of Rome. While defunct for many years, our phoenix-like rebirth seems like an apt time to restart it.

Venice, Palazzo Ducale

The Doge was looking at the map his cartographers had prepared. The reconstruction of the Fleet was being ultimated and the republic was searching a new place to start its Mediterranean merchant outposts now that Greece was occupied.
His Most Serene Highness gazed at the cost of north africa. Ancient lands that once belonged to forgotten empires: Egypt, Carthago, Ummayad... The Doge pointed to a rounded coast in what the romans called Lybia.

"Building an outpost on Cirenaica would prove to be useful. We could try to colonize this lands and reclaim them to Christianity. I'm sure his Excellency the Pope will be glad to have once again a beacon of Christ in this Moorish lands."

Beda (البيضاء‎), Cyrenaica, colonial territory (Stato da Màr) of Venice

Governor Rolando Zenà had just arrived to the coastal city of Beda, The republic had managed to conquer Cyrenaica from the moorish hands and was now building new settlements and enlarging the existing ports.
The governor looked around. This hot land was intended to be a replacement to the lost greek settlements in the Aegeum and had to be turned into christian safe ports. The Pope had blessed this "Riconquista" and incuraged the Doge to keep its holdings in north africa.

"I think we NEED to rethink some things..." The king, Gustaf Birke said to his wife
"What do you mean? We can't just change things up and excpect all of the people to be fine with it!" Linnea Birke said to her husband, Gustaf
"We need more allies... We need them so we can export some of our material to them so that we get some more money and we can build better and stronger boats and houses, our people need it!" He said
"But what if the people get suspicious about the whole situation and want to go to war?" She asked him
"Our people are not stupid! They know that we care for them... And if they wanted to fight someone in a war then lets fight, with our future allies, don't you see? It will be so much easier on both fronts!" He said and sat down in a chair
"Alright alright! We'll try but if even one thing goes wrong then i will intervene!"
