- The Sacred Lands
The Curia of the Senate, the Imperial City of Ar-Minalêth, the Heartland of Arandor
The Most Serene People's Empire of the Quendi Nation and the Greater Amanitte State
The emergency session of the Imperial Senate, the first to be undertaken in many years, was organized in a hurry as every senator in the capital region was immediately apprehended and brought to the Curia to hear the words of Athal nos-Arbellason Aþâraphelûn Ingwë Envinyatar Taranōwē Ûrîthor Alcedina, Prince-Regent of the Imperial Regency Council of the Sundavaer Regency. Many a senator, lead by the charismatic Princeps Senatus Mysetis, a seventy something year old woman who had opposed Alcedina hegemony for the better part of a half century, was sceptic of the news they had received as justification for the meeting but as more and more repports arrived from Tol Fornen the opposition faded away as the senators realized that the unthinkable had happened. A third degree power had launched an attack on Amanitte soil.
As Athal entered the marble curia room dressed in full imperial regalia with his aides he knew that victory was already his. The senators had feelt the bitter taste of fear and now they where angry and wanted revenge. The japanese would regret their attack more then anything in their short history. "Senators." The Prince-Regent said raising his hand to call for silence. "Senators, Quendi, Countrymen. Exactly six hours ago the pseudo-socialist empire of Japan launched a full scale air raid of formerly unseen proportions on Tol Fornen sinking a frigate and badly damaging many instalations on the northern side of Tol Fornen, including several townhouses of the Yimai people. This vile attack, launched without prior warning, is a clear signal from the socio-fascists of Japan that they wish not for peace and do not respect the territorial sovereignity of their neighbors. Today, the 11th of Lairë the year 1499, a date which will live in infamy, I ask of this most august body that it will not allow the japanese warmongers to go unpunished. I move for the Senate to, with its supermajority vote, to temporarily suspend the Self Determination of the People to War Act and instill to the Popular Assemblies that they accept and engage in total war with the empire of Japan, its allies of Korea, Russia, Turkey and whatever other nation, state or entity that stands with them and their horrid warmongering ways. Senators, Quendi, Countrymen. I call for war." Athal knew he had won even before the senators jumped from their seats in spontanous applause. It was unthinkable that an attack on a Shield Base could be ignored.
Yet the Prince-regent was not prepared to stop delievering his speech to the Senate. He still needed to push them a bit out of their comfort zone. "Senators, Countrymen, Quendi." He said raising his hand slowly causing the enangered senators to settle down and listen. "Make no mistake about it. The empire of Japan is a monstrous and vile land of enslaved citizens and corrupt lords. Not two hours ago I recieved information from the Imperial Inquisition that the empire of Japan had intended to send terrorists to fly a plane with its own civilian citizens into the Shazbodor Palace. Japan has no compassion for its own citizens. Its government, while waging unjust wars throughout the world, leaves its populace to starve in the street or die in mass conscripted armies. Its emperor calls himself a God while behaving in a manor not fit of a dog and banning all religious beliefs opposed to his own perceived divinity. Its political system prevents all free thought and opposition while demanding its own public to submit to senseless and failed leadership. Senators, Quendi, Countrymen. No honorable and just state, indeed no functional state even if unjust, can stand by and watch the continuance of japanese warmongery, extremism and cruelty for the sake of cruelty. Least of all can we who have so often seen failed states descend into mindless violence and attrocities. This war will not be a war against the People of Japan but only its wicked emperor and his corrupt government. It is indeed a war between Good and Evil. Between Right and Wrong. Senators, Quendi, Countrymen. FREEDOM OR DEATH." Athal smiled a grim and resolved smile as the Senate repeated his roaring war cry. War was a reality. Japan would fall.

To: The pseudo-socialistic imperialists of Japan and her allies
CC: The International Community
From: The People and Senate of the Quendi
Subject: Your final ultimatum
The People and Senate has faced its fair share of unwarranted agression and militarism from numerous insignificant nations such as yours. Since time immemoriable the People and Senate of the Quendi has done its utmost to avoid the pointless and foolish wars that in all days of the Earth has been the curse and scourge of mankind. With great patience has we sought the peace even when it was more elusive then the sensibility of nations such as your own failed state. Yet even the patience of the People and Senate is not infinite and you, foolish emperor, has crossed the line of what the People and Senate, in the name of peace, will accept.
By your vile and abominable, and failed, attack on the Quendi possesions of Tol Fornen and the wider Misty Isles Archipelago the japanese empire has condemned itself to face the full and complete military might of the Quendi war machine. As I type these very words an empire far larger then anything you can even imagine is suspending all its operations to adjust to a total war economy with one purpose and one purpose only. The end of Japan.
While I personally weep with those innocent japanese men, women and children who will die and suffer for their unjust regimes cowardice and dishonorable behavior the People and Senate has feelt the black blood of our ancestors awake at your onslaught on our possesions and lands. In the name of the brave men and woman of MIS Ainulindalë and Tol Fornen I hereby issue you an ultimatum which, make no mistake about it, you will either accept completely or be made to accept completely.
Japan must surrender unconditionally to the Amanitte State, accept full responsibility for the war against the Quendi Nation and Aman, accept to be occupied by the Quendi military for all eternity or until the People and Senate, by the grace of their great mercy, allows you independence. Japan's military must be handed over in its entirety to the armed forces of the Imperial. Popular and Republican arms of the Quendi. The military will then be utilized in war against Korea and Russia untill those two states sue for peace. At that point the japanese military will then be abolished. Furthermore any official involved in the attack on Tol Fornen, save those who fought themselves as none of them will ever escape our swift retribution, must take their own live or be executed. Solely shall your emperor be excepted under the condition that he immediately travels to the Borremeo Imperial Palace in Charn to prostrate himself naked before the Phoenix Throne and pledge eternal servitude to the God Emperor of the Quendi. Only then shall your majesty's life be saved. These are the terms of the Amanitte State. Accept them and your state may retain some semblence of statehood. Refuse them and you will be destroyed and the very memory of Japan will be erased from the history books.
This being the decreed will of the People and Senate of the Quendi.Sincerely yours
HIHG Princess Aleera Alcedina-Aquilaine
High Representative of the Provisional Government
The Most Serene People's Empire of the Quendi Nation and the Greater Amanitte State
Throughout the lands of the Amanitte Empire, its colonies, its dominions, its exilarchies and all other lands subordinate to it the war machine of the Quendi Nation was being summoned. If the japanese and their allies had found the quendi operations in the Black Sea a hazzle they would despair faced with the tenfold, yes even hundredfold, larger force that now assembled throughout Aman and beyond.
From popular assembly to popular assembly voices cried out with increasing intensity for war. The senate, which had passed the declaration of war with a shocking 100-0-0 majority enabling it to overturn the Self Determination of the People to War Act needed not fear public opposition. The attack on Tol Fornen had reminded the People of the fear that had once raged in their land as the Quendisphere Crisis saw past policies fail and with the memory came a fierceless, yes even mindless, resolve. A resolve to destroy the japanese military and bring its government to its knees.

Forward Shield Base XXII, the Island of Tol Fornen, the Misty Islands Archipelago
The Most Serene People' Empire of the Quendi Nation and the Greater Amanitte State
If the japanese thought they could escape the consequences of their filthy surprise attack they where very wrong. As admiral Yamamoto Isoruko tried to pull out of the battle his force had started his quendi counterpart navarch Fëanáro nos-Macalaurë i Nelyatïr Oiomúrë was only just about ready to test the true quality of the japanese. They had a long way home and all the way would they be pursued by Quendi planes, ships and submarines. They would not escape Oiomúrë was sure of it.
Praefectus Shannara i Calaquendi Sulanarii had been ordered to wipe out those of the enemy zeros and stealth bombers that had foolishly stayed behind. The radars of her Skyguard battery which had yet to be attacked was far superior to any stealth available and firing yet a volley of 144 LY4031 missiles the praefectus was certain that she would be able to take out the enemy forces. From the airbases just south of Tol Fornen a dozen RM-30 San Real Supersonic Bombers took of each carrying 10 LY4030 missiles. The fast bombers quickly reached Tol Fornen and fired a total of 120 of the LY4030 Missiles against what remained of the enemy fighters and bombers.
It was at that point that Oiomúrë finally stroke against the enemy vessels. From no less then 130 FA-18 Vehicles a total of 260 of the Anti Ship Intermediate Range Ballistic Missiles was fired at the enemy carriers. The formidable missiles quickly entered a ballistic trajectory being guided by a sophisticated supercomputer towards their targets. Flying 200 kilometers above the japense and at speeds exceeding mach 10 the missiles took only a few minuttes to be in range before plunging down towards the enemy capital ships. As they descended the missiles reached their maximum speed at which almost no missile on earth would be able to stop them. They also used their computers to scramble enemy radars to detect fake radar signals immitating he missiles. As the missiles came even closer chaff and flares en masse was fired all to make it impossible to stop the 260 missiles.
Yet however fearsome the FA-18 missiles was it was but a fraction of the military power that Oiomúrë now releashed against Japan. From his four carriers 36 LY908 'Warhawk' Strike Fighter/Interceptor took of armed to the teeth with missiles on all inner pylons to destroy the japanese navy and whatever airplanes would be on their wings after facing the massive attack that had been unleashed upon them.
South of Tol Fornen, on the small island of Téezînth an artillery myriad was finally ready to launch missiles against the enemy ships. 234 LY300 Manticore Multiple Rocket Systems, guided by the radar of praefectus Shannara i Calaquendi Sulanarii and her people, launched a formidable volley of LY589 Hellion Advanced Cruise Missiles against the enemy ships. 3276 missiles in total was fired. Their targets where five hundred kilometers away so it would take the highly advanced missiles a half hour to arrive and rain down upon the enemy. Or what of the enemy would survive the FA-18's.
The result of the Quendi attack was formidable. In the air the quendi missiles destroyed what remained of the japanese aircrafts and the japanese attempts to kamikaze failed almost entirely as the targets was to far away to be hit by the already badly damaged japanese aircrafts. At sea Yamamoto's 2nd Imperial fleet, got heavily assaulted, losing 4 of the 6 aircraft carriers. Three of the 4 helicopter carriers were also sunk, while 5 destroyers, 6 frigates, 4 battle-cruisers, 40 patrol boats, 5 nuclear cruisers, 6 dreadnoughts, 4 juggernaughts, 9 battleships, with 5 of each sort of submarines deployed to this front, were also sunk. The attack on Tol Fornen was a disastous proof of the effectivity of the Quendi defenses in the Belgaer even when caught by surprise.
Yet for Oiomúrë it was not enough. When the 36 QU-9 Advanced Air Superiority Fighters that had previously been send out came within range of the enemy ships they fired 216 KEPD-350 Cruise Missiles at what remained of the once so proud japanese 2nd Imperial Fleet. Immediately flying back towards their carriers, the artillery on Téezînth fired their second, and last, missile volley that arrived only seven minuttes after the first. This round of 3276 Hellion missiles was, thought Oiomúrë, enough to send the japanese to Utumno and Anagmando where they belonged. Yet the admiral didn't end the attack but keept up his pursuit. No japanese who had taken part in the cowardly attack would ever see their island homeland, yet given how that nation was run why would they want to?

This war is as the headline say semi-open. Conditions for participation is to refrain from godmodding, keeping OOC to the OOC thread. The RP is cannonic (as all my non F7 related RP's are) and will not be retconned. The OOC and Sign-Up thread is here
