There can be more than one noble/character from a state. If you wanted to stay in Alabama I don’t think you’d have to change too much of your App.

Yeah, just change the title and you could be a noble in Alabama who is nominally under the Archduke Raphael Semmes. Here's the link to that application btw:

No worries, I'd be happy to have a rival nominally under Semmes in Alabama. You could even keep the title Baron of Montgomery since the only cities I directly claimed were Birmingham and Mobile. Feel free to TG me or chat here if you have any other ideas.

Thank you for being understanding, I haven't any intent of usurping titles (and, given Taylor's mental state, I don't think he had any either). Would you be alright if I were to have Taylor rule as Viscount of Montgomery, perhaps with a symbolic and largely powerless role in the Archduke's government?

From what I understand the meeting at Biltmore has concluded. Not for the opportune moment for Semmes to make an appearance, but I was hoping he could strike up some rapport with any one of y'alls characters who are leaving Biltmore.

Certainly! As for the position, I intended Semmes to be an absolute ruler but one with a rather limited focus, so while his courtiers would be powerless compared to him in theory, they would actually enjoy some freedom as to setting policies in areas Semmes is unconcerned with, so long as they keep his favor.

If anyone has any input, would we say for certain the Asheville-Nashville line is the only way to then get to Memphis from Asheville aside from obviously stagecoach or wagon? What would the good Railroad Baron say OOC on the matter?

I ask because while obviously preparations are being made to curb the partisans, they appear to be on the more Eastern portions of Appalachia as of current. Forrest, who I will have attend the meeting in a post that will highlight his general interactions at the gathering prior to the attacks, would want to return to his land to rule direct, being a former military strategist and whatnot, and secure a defensive. As I've stated previously, Forrest values a reborn South yes, but he values his own garnished power more, where Stuart will parry off of this as he puts the needs over the many and the needs of all to become a united South once again over the petty power trip many of our Archduke and King friends have throughout these divided territories.

Things will begin to heat up in Tennessee for sure. On the one hand, Forrest has basically authorized anyone supporting anti-slavery to be at the mercy of his 19th century version of the S.S in a sense. Although certainly those practices won't be undertaken, anyone found to be found guilty of conspiracy to plot against Memphis, even in their public or private support of anti-slavery legislation or practices being adopted, will be at the mercy of the decisions of one Colonel John Goodwin, the same man who was a Captain at Fort Pillow, during the massacre of hundreds of unarmed black unionists captive soldiers, under the direction of course, by Forrest himself.

Forrest will be loved for what he is doing to promote a localized succeeding state for Memphis and West-Tennessee. Stuart ultimately wants to see what Forrest is building that is so great not only "loyal" in the sense it sweats "allegiance" to the Emperor, even though that allegiance to every power at this point is a walking joke, but is actually able to cooperate with those in the East and South, to further safeguard against further North invasion, and to promote Forrest's ideas on a national level, to a degree, excluding of course slavery and the slight warmongering and bitter hatred Forrest has for the North, even if its not even seen by Stuart at this point, it's somewhere in there.

Forrest's son on the contrary, wants Memphis and what it has to stay localized and as a mostly separate entity, so he's very so isolationist and sectionalist like his father, however he's been educated with what can be seen in most cases as a Northern University education by Freed-Hardeman University in the capital city of his Province, established 1869. With that being said, while he will undoubtedly hold true his father's ideals of Southern patriotism and nationalism towards the Southern aristocracy, he will promote higher-level education across all levels of wealth and poverty, despite his father's unwillingness and disapproval, he will end up inevitably promoting slavery to be abolished, and he will promote manufacturing, industry and modernization for the areas of which they control, something his father as originally a plantation owner and farmer of varying degrees of wealth before he was so successful in real-estate, won't be too happy with.

Yes the younger Forrest and the older Forrest will most likely be scrapping for sure in some ways, moreso than expected potentially even.

Additionally, every key member of the Royal Court, Viscounts of Provinces, Ministers who advise, and judiciaries in the Royal Court who serve as almost a makeshift "Supreme Court" in some ways will all play a hand in whose side they're on, as well as keep in mind there are also growing pro-unionists among those who may be able to support young Forrest in the future.

As it stands in the IC it seems that the two lines that were cut were the only lines that led directly into Biltmore. However the railroads in the south are much more prevalent as compared to real life around this period since the north never made it that far into the Confederacy to rid them. My character is a rail baron that has spent close to two decades building a railroad network across the south according to my application. Also a number of other characters have mentioned either in their applications or in the IC their advancements in rail building both locally and nationally. Based on all that, I don't think it would be unreasonable to say that you wouldn't have to travel far to find another station to get wherever you needed to be.

Appreciated, I will address Forrest's return to state via horse to the next approximate rail station and then perhaps a few line transfers here to there back to Memphis in my next post, although I do not want to double post... lololol

OP seems very busy these days, unfortunately.
Also, the meeting between Newton Knight and the southern delegation can only really progress once I know they are all up in Maryland.

With the school year ending and associated problems, I did indeed become very busy. If there's still interest in this roleplay, I am certainly open to making Dahyan co-OP. I will have to scale back my IC involvement, though — probably posting every now and then to push up new plot events — because I've got a full courseload for the next six weeks as well, and am starting work on a Congressional.

So I'll offer a straw poll to that question: is there still interest in continuing the RP?

Although I maybe couldn't complete it soon as I'm in the middle of a zoom meeting currently.
