The Geo-Political and Socioeconomic situation of 1905 was... Complicated, to say the least. The World was divided between the boundaries of two huge, militarily powerful Alliances: The Entente Cordiale; A Mutual Defense Treaty that binned Colonial Empires, and young nations to a Defense and Military Aggression Pact. and the Central Powers; a Mutual Defense treaty and Alliance. Both seeks to expand their already massive power, while those who were neutral, or undecided were slowly being cajoled into helping one side, neutrality was an option doomed to failure.

The World was a Powderkeg, and there were many, many gunmen that are more than willing to blow it.

The Central Powers is a coalition of Nations who seek to expand their power through acquiring Colonies, but due to Entente Domination of the seas, they seek to forcefully expand their Colonies through acquiring the Colonies of Entente members. They are not Good, or Evil, and there is no guarantee of them losing or winning. Hopefully more people would join the Central Powers, yes that means you.


The Entente Cordiale is a Coalition of nations, and Colonial Empires who seek to defend their territories and colonies from the Central Power. As mentioned above, just because the Entente won the war in Real Life, doesn't mean they will win this time. So if you have second thoughts, just join the Central Powers. Yes, that also means you.


you take control of your National Leader(s) and the Commander of the Armies, you will also take control of the POV of a soldier. Describing the horrors and experiences of trench warfare. As everyday, General Ripper awaits to push that big red button to allow for a general advance, then boom you're dead. Also the everyday experiences, the ever-present danger of a lucky shot from enemy artillery, and Chemical Weapons.

Also, WWI wasn't just All Along the Western Front. There was such a thing as an Eastern Front, and the Colonial Front. Some countries maybe so big that Trench Warfare was practically unfeasible, while some countries may have vast colonial territories at their disposal, so RPers will jump from front to front regularly. While each side tries to create new tactics and weapons to break the stalemate in the trenches.

The RP will start in the year 1905, not 1914.

The Medwedian President watched from his balcony as hundreds of Ursoids in dark green uniforms marched along the palace square. It was a very interesting sight - a large formation fighting practice was taking place.

A small company marched to a large row of targets, then the Sergeant ordered "Halt!". The front row then was ordered to aim their rifles at the targets.

The Sergeant shouted: "FIRE!" and 40 gunshots were heard. Then, the Sergeant inspected the targets. Each one had a hole, in the area where you get 100 points, near the middle. Some even had the holes IN the middle.

"Good Job! I didn't know that Grenadiers were as precise as Sharpshooters! Congratulations!" shouted the Sergeant. "Second Row's turn!".

In a small meadow behind the Palace Wall, several Grenadiers were practicing with grenades. Small booms were heard from the training grenades, which were filled with flour. "Bang! Bang! Bang!".

The Artillery was meanwhile practicing in the Bumme Rang, or the Medwedian Artillery Firing Range. It consisted of several cannons set up in a crescent formation, and in front of each cannon, 3 kilometres away, were several targets. In trenches near the targets were sitting soldiers who inspected the hits and telegraphed over to the Artillerists, whether it was a hit or a miss.

"Very good!" said the President. "We will probably win our next war."

St. Louisbourg,
The Palace of the Evremondes


Emperor Dupont sat with his family at their morning breakfast. Clothed in an assortment of bathrobes, night dresses and shirts, the family was relaxing, enjoying its few precious moments of freedom before state duties mandated they all don suits of gold and silk, and carry out the official matters of state. Dupont, a young man, looked upon his four children and wife, and realized that, indeed, he was a truly lucky man. His wife, the lustrous and elegant Rivera Laboise, had been an actress abroad, and her innate beauty shone in each and every one of their offspring. Brushing his regal moustache, the Emperor began to hum a little song from the country serfs that he had learned many years ago.

It was amidst this moment of peace and tranquility that Dupont's phone rang. Slightly annoyed, he picked up his telephone and nearly shouted into it.

"Yes?"

"My Emperor. Your nephew..."

"What about my nephew? Huh? Spit it out?" Dupont was just growing more and more annoyed that he had been interrupted so. This had better be important news.

"Your nephew has brashly taken his Fifth horse guards into Ghondran territory to pursue a woman."

"A...a woman?"

"Yes...I know not how to tell you this an easy way...but she earned a fortune through...pleasure of men."

Dupont simply froze at the sheer stupidity of the situation. His nephew had taken armed soldiers across an already disputed and tense border...to find a whore? Indeed, as the soldier on the phone continued to speak, Dupont grew more and more agitated, until the point that he simply gasped in shock and dropped the phone.

"Wire the Ghondra colonial offices immediately. Perhaps they will return my fool of a nephew without incident."

Crown Colony Hennesey
15th January 1905, 0515 Hours

Private Howard Green got off the Truck, the rubber tires creating a trail of dirt in the wet, rain-soaked mud. He secured his Lander-Ratford Bolt-Action rifle, lining up along with his platoon, the 3 other platoons of Able Company lined up in a column, the Command Staff rid on horses, looking them down as if they were ants, who just happened to know how to use Rifles. "Company!" The Captain; a white man, a 3rd class Margrave from Dunceton shouted to the amassed company of fighting men. "According to a Yalosian Telegram sent to the Colonial Office indicate that a Nephew of the Yalosian Emperor; Prince Francoise has decided to pursue a whore, into Ghondran Territory, of what intent he will do to the Prostitute, we have yet to know." He paused, checking his watch, it would be sunrise in just a few minutes. Not that it would alleviate the winter cold.

"Our orders are simple, Neutralize the Prince, and send him across the border post-haste, he have taken armed guards with him, and should he orders his armed escorts to engage us, we have the right to defend ourselves, under no circumstances should we engage them without prior authorization from the Colonial Office, or without a conflict being started by the Yalos, no one wants a war over a Horny prince gentlemen."

The men chuckled at that, most of the officers looked rather offended though, the remains of Victorian Tradition still drilled into their heads. "Sergeants! Accompany your assigned squads, and search whatever location that might feel suspicious. The Command Staff will search on Horseback. Gentlemen" He ordered, his tone final, before trotting his white horse towards the direction of the sun, his Command Staff following him.

January 18th 1905 Garden of Tyne, Canovia

The Empress of Canovia Alexandria was drinking tea outside in the Garden of Tyne watching the military march down Sunshire lane. General Hein who was commanding the military spotted the Empress and greeted her with a smile.

All was going well until General Hein and Empress Alexandria spotted something in the distance. Enemy Zepplin Blimps making there way into Canovian territory. As the blimps got closer General Hein instructed the military to evacuate the Empress. At 0725 1905 one Zepplin blimp exploded over Big Bently Tower . As each blimp is exploding near the Garden of Tyne Empress Alexandria and General Hein decide to do what was best........ Retreat. As each soldier running the opposite way getting out of harms way General Hein was caught of guard by an exploding blimp burning his arm. Citizens were worried and started evacuating into the Emergency Bumkers. General Hein laying on the floor helpless was picked up and carried to the royal carriage and to his surprise he saw the Empress. "Are you OK General" she asked "Yes thank you your highness" he replied "We must do the Unthinkable we must go to out of the capital city we must find shelter and we must find out who did this." "I agree Empress".

15th January 1905, 12:10


King Mohamed Abdullah was at a mosque praying to god, face down facing towards Mecca he began to speak. "Oh God remove these infidels called the Medwedians, the Ghondrans and the Europans from our lands, and help us to restore the empire." he prayed. After leaving the mosque
Foreign advisor: Bashar Al-Ali approached him with new information. "My King i have something important." he said. "What is this, I have just finished my after noon prayers?" "Well it turns out that there are some disputes between the central powers and the entente cordial." King Mohamed then wondered what was going on in the outside world. "It turns out Medwedia and Ghondra are in the Entente Cordial, while Europa is in the Central Powers." the foreign advisor then said.

"Hm It wouldn't be the best idea to go to war with both alliances at once, so I guess deal with one then the other later, perhaps we should remove the members of the Entente alliance first, and then sometime later Europa." the King said. After that the Kings limo (or whatever was supposed to be a limo back then) arrived and the king got in, it drove to the Palace the king resides in. After it pulled up he entered the Palace and sent a special message to commander Benjamin of Benia.

To: Commander Benjamin of Benia
From: King Mohamed Abdullah of Haichianga
I have heard of the disputes and I must say that Haichianga currently is having some disputes as well, perhaps this could be used to our advantages. I asked you to meet me in the Yichido Palace in 5 days to discuss these matters, I hope you will not arrive late.

-King Mohamed Abdullah of Haichianga: Reviver of the Qysid

15th January 1905, 12:51


"CHARGE yelled a sergeant as the first row of cavalry's horses ran past several targets. Each one of those targets were Shit shot in the center, the aim was precise every time. "SECOND ROW!" the Sargent said. Meanwhile the infantry was also shooting targets quite accurately. "If we go to war surely we will win easily with such accuracy." a soldier said. "IF YOU THINK ACCUACY IS ENOUGH you are sadly mistaken, maneuver is also a major part of warfare." the Sargent said. Artillery was being used In the distance and seemed to have a very good range, but not the best explosion around. The soldiers practiced maneuvering surprisingly well and it would be somewhat hard for a bullet to hit them without perfect aim. field Marshal Hussein Naidoo entered the base and watched as the troops worked there hardest. "I must say I am impressed by this training he said to the Sargent. "Why thank you, I have done a lot of hard work." the Sargent replied. "Well war Is more likely now, there are major disputes going on east, west and south of us." Hussein said, he then left the base expecting a future conflict.

Palace De La Sultan,
Al-Bakubad,
Sharko Federation





Sultan Gamal Abdul Nasser stood at the balcony of his palace.
He had just finished his prayers. He stared out to the Calvary patroling the palace, and gazed at the Calvary, and then at marching marching soldiers. He smiled, and dreamt of something, but was interrupted by someone knocking repeatedly on the door to his room. Gamal sighed, and walked to the door. He opened it, only to see his butler. "My sultan, I have something to tell you..." He said.

"Hmmph, what is it?" Gamal asked. "Disputes..." The butler said. "Central Powers and the Entente Alliance." The butler added. "Fair enough, as a good member of the Central Powers, we shall oppose the Entente, but I don't think a war will happen. Probably one of those small diplomatic arguments..." Gamal said. "No sir, the disputes are even worse.." The butler said.
"By who?!" Gamal said surprised. "We don't know..." He said. "Ready the soldiers. We need to prepare. Hopefully, this isn't a war..." The sultan said, hopefully...




Zaherbad Military Base...

Calvary units trained, and so as normal infantry. They only were told that minor conflict were happening, not a war. The Calvary trained, and the soldiers weren't even prepared for a war. A Sargent prepared his troops, while a General watched. "Come here Sargent. I have to say you are training well..." The General said. He asked the Sargent to come into his quarters, at the most northwestern part of the military base.

They entered, and closed the door. "Sarge, you are doing well. Major disputes happening all around us. Central Powers and you know what..." The general said.

"Well, if there's war we will fight it. If there's none we'll prepare at a higher level Incase there is war," the Sargent said.

"Good thinking, dismissed, now get yourself out there and train. We might be facing a war.." The General said.

"SIR YES SIR!" The Sargent shouted, walking out, thinking about one think, war and his family...

Imperial Forces High Command
15th January 1320 Hours Ghondra Standard Time (GST)

Field Marshall Edward Kirkland, Margrave at Kirkland entered the conference room, the room was filled wit Important figures in the Military. There was the Duke of Ashton, Lord-Admiral of the Fleet, General Andre de Haviland, of the newly constituted Army Ar Corps, and Kirkland's boss; The Viscount Bretton. They all stood once he entered the room. He stood beside his chair, he nodded, "Gentlemen you may be seated" Kirkland said, to which the assembled figures obeyed, seating, facing yours truly.

"Gentlemen, today we shall discuss the Situation between the Central Powers, and the Entente, before the Conference scheduled in February. First, as you might already know, we are currently not in an official state of war with the Central Powers. With that in mind, it is imperative that we keep peace in our time. I'm sure you're all aware that the world is a boiling Powderkeg, and there are far too many unsecured pistols aimed at that Powderkeg. Peace in our time is feasible, I believe it is. Now, for reports on the branches, I'll start off first:" Edward took his seat, looking over his papers.

"The Army currently stands as the largest force, with around 52% of Active Personnel, our active personnel numbers stand at 4 million, and 200 thousand personnel at 2,184,000, about a million trucks, at least 300,000 row boats, 500 Observation Baloons, and about 200 Aeroplanes, and 50,000 Artillery Pieces, mostly Howitzers. About 35% of them are deployed in the Colonies and Overseas Territories. I now defer to the Lord-Admiral for his report on the Navy."

The Lord-Admiral stood, his eyes secured on his papers. The rims of his glasses glistening in the light of the outdoor sun. "The Navy and Marine Corps constitutes the rest of the Military, at 48% of Personnel, our personnel numbers are around 2 million, and 16 thousand personnel. We have 10 Marine Divisions, 15 Dreadnoughts, 35 Cruisers, 50 Destroyers, 62 Frigates, 78 Corvettes, and around 120 Steamer Transports, for a sum-total of 320 ships, manned by around a million, and 500 thousand personnel, and a hundred thousand men are members of the Marine Corps. The rests are mostly Harbor crew, Pilots, and Coast Guards. To put it simply gentlemen, we rule the waves." Every Naval officer, and Marine Corps Officer smiled at that, while a few of the Army officers had a sour look planted on their faces, wishing that more funding were allocated to the Army.

The rest of the Afternoon was a blur of planning, reports, and briefings.

After the parade, King Augustus was called to a meeting. A meeting to review the military of Sweadan. 'Your Majesty! What a pleasure to meet you!' Shouted Commander Anderson, Continuously bowing to the monarch. 'Hello, Commander! What a pleasure to finally meet you, How is it going in your new job?' Said the king. 'Brilliant' Said Anderson. The King and Anderson walked to the meeting room. The room was full of military officials. Including the Foreign minister, Defence secretary and other government officials. Everyone stands and salutes the King. 'Please, Please, Be seated my friends.' Said the king. 'Your Majesty, we have called a meeting about our military strength' Said one of the officials. 'Oh, good, and is our military well, may i ask?' said the king. 'Oh, it's fine your majesty, actually, it's better!' said the official. 'OK, lets get down to business! 50% of our forces are the Armed forces, battling on the group. 25% are Airforce, 25% are Military.' said Commander Anderson. 'In the Armed forces, we have a total of 641,550 personnel, 192,465 of these are active, the rest are reserves, and on standby. We have 700 tanks, 400 trucks, and 200 transport trucks' Said anderson 'The Navy, we have 98,700 soldiers, 29,610 of these active, the rest on standby. We have 6 naval ships, and 4 aircraft carriers' Said the Naval Commander 'The Air force, We have 246,750 personnel, 74,025 are active, rest are on standby.

King Nodir II had just been coronated. He was only 5. Meanwhile, During the latter part of his Father's Reign, a unofficial Jordslagian expedition under Colonel Grasnusk discovered a new land. Due to it being closed up, other then to the PKE, Jordslag was very technologically behind, and had no colonies; until now. They established a colony along the coast, next to a nation that called itself Polaria, and the Jordslagians bought from Polaria maps of the world. in 1902, Jordslag finally opened up to the world and spent extensive amounts on modernizing the army and cities, and improving Education.by now, in 1905, the Army was bigger and better then ever, due to the new technology. Citizens now lived in Brick houses, instead of mud huts. And the Literacy rate had gone up from 15% to nearly 80%. In other words, life was good. However, not everything was as great as it seemed. To get the Technology, Jordslag had to allow Citizens of other Countries to come in, and thus was influenced by the world, the very thing King Nodir's Ancestors had hoped to avoid. To avoid being absorbed by a larger country, the King enforced a policy of neutrality. However, neither he nor the policy were to last. During a traditional summer fishing trip, a great storm was whipped up, and it sunk the boat, killing the King and Queen. After he died, Insane Nationalists took over King Nodir II's regency, and aligned Jordslga with the mighty Central powers. However, as Jordslag shares a land border with PKE, and PKE is with the oppising alliance, the Entente, they have been significantly increasing Soldiers along that border...

Um, no. Those things were invented AFTER World War II, during the Interwar period, which is part of why there was so few of them in World War II.

OOC: Just wait for a Co-Op, and until then, don't mention these techs. Anyone who has any objections with the tech that Sweadan has mentioned, please go ahead. I need to go to sleep. Jordslag, until Cymrea arrives you're in charge.

OOC: Vietnam, there's still plenty of room. And guys please! Move the conversations to the OOC thread.

Jennifer rui Britannia

Grand Princess of the United Imperial Principalities of Polaris

New Soleanna City


June 13th, 1905 AD / 1960 A.T.B

1825 Hours



New Soleanna City, nicknamed " The City of Water" was amazing at sunset, the lights really brought out the city's heart.

The many workers in this country sought to bring Polaris power and fortune so the United Grand Duchies would prosper.

The Princess was lying in her bedroom, looking at the skyline. Her servant Mr. Atomo rushed into her bedroom.




"Hello, your grace, How are you today" said Mr. Atomo after bowing to his grand princess.

"Archibald, you're too nice , you are allowed to call me Jennifer" said the Grand Princess of Polaris

"I couldn't" Archie said. "But we are missing the point, the creation of the Central Powers"

"And I am supposed to be scared because.." said Jennifer

"This article released by Ghondra... "The Central Powers is a coalition of Nations who seek to expand their power through acquiring Colonies, but due to Entente Domination of the seas, they seek to forcefully expand their Colonies through acquiring the Colonies of Entente members"

"Ahhh the powerful nation of Ghondra, wait.. but if they attack Ghondra... they might get us. We need to send Ghondra a message ...

this message will tell Imperial Ghondra that we are on their side and we will aid them no matter what!" said the Grand Princess

"On it" yelled Archie, as he ran to his office.

LETTER TO THE GRAND PRINCESS OF POLARIS

To: Grand Princess of Polaris, Jennifer Rui Brittania
From: Prime Minister of Jordslag Traskiev Lavsky
Context:
As you know, our Nations have long had a good relationship. However, you are probably thinking that this may change due to us being in the Central powers. However, what you may not know is that King Nodir II has done a bloodless revolution against his corrupt ministers who sought to bring us in line with the Central Powers. We are establishing a new Alliance, the F.N.R., and would like to invite you to join, as you are right next to our only colony. If you choose not to, that's fine, but we will be fighting with the Entente against the Central powers. Please reply soon, as I have many of these letters to send.

King's palace briefing room
15th January 1905 5:12 pm


Field Marshal Hussein Naidoo entered the room and the briefing on the army began.
"Ok so right now we have 10 million ground forces, half of them are cavalry. Our artillery numbers 30,000 artillery pieces and our trucks number 100,000. 150 aero planes are at our disposal along with 100 observation balloons and 200,000 row boats." he said. "Hm I see." king Mohamed said. "Now, lord admiral Ahmad, what is our stance on the navy?"

Lord Admiral Ahmad stood and said, "The Navy and Marine corps as we know has 7 Marine divisions, 10 dreadnoughts, 20 cruisers, 58 destroyers, 65 frigates, 60 corvettes, and 100 steamer transports. Making a total of 313 ships." he said.

"Excellent, with that we should be able to win any war." the king said.

The rest was simply blabbering and stuff.

St Louisbourg,
Chateux Rouge


The Plains Empire was a diverse nation, and while the aristocracy and bureaucracy were predominantly francophone, there were still a number of blacks and native peoples who had managed to secure positions of affluence within the Empire’s inner-most circles. However, it was no secret that racial discrimination was prevalent within Imperial holdings, and that a Frenchman was on average, far wealthier and freer than his darker skinned brethren. The military, gendarmerie and financial elite were all the tell-tale pale skinned, and it was awfully difficult for the minority races to, say, own land or set up businesses.

So, it was strange that a black man had risen to lead the Imperial military. Defying traditional values of race and status, Marshal Andros had rejected his station in life as the son of a carpenter, and achieved a military education by running off to the army at a young age. Luck, perseverance and a small cadre of devoted followers had catapulted him to that highest of offices, Le Commandant Exalté Impériale. Resistance by the clergy and aristocracy had been fierce, but nobody could deny his talent.

Dupont nodded as Andros entered with his entourage of guards and followers, and beckoned him to sit. Decked out in his garish uniform, Dupont’s sash was covered with medals he had done nothing to earn, and a sword that had never made contact with flesh. Andros, nodding, wordlessly handed his Emperor a small tome, and took a seat at the opposite end of the table. At the table also sat Admiral Prevot and Army commander, Reiu, who simply sat, their hands relaxed, with much dignity and professionalism that had been come to be associated with Yalosii military prowess.

“Mes Amies. L’Empereur. J’ai, ici, un reportage de le situation militaire de notre pays.”

Andros lay out a map upon the table, and instructed the Emperor to turn to page 32 of the corpulent book he had just given to him.

“As you can see, our recent naval build up has been successful. 20 dreadnaughts and 500 other assorted vessels. Most of our vessels are relatively small, but it is no matter. Our naval force is certainly not strong enough to defeat the Ghondran navy in a pitched battle, but certainly enough to protect our ports from blockade and more than enough to force open shipping channels for our troops abroad. The Ghondrans will never expect such an inundation of naval force.”

“What of the underwater boats? Are those feasible?”

Prevot stood and spoke his piece.

“Our scientists have managed to complete about seven prototypes. They cannot last too long underwater, and will be unable to launch far ranged naval strikes. However, for other purposes, they may be useful, yet.”

“What of the condition of our army?”

Reiu stood now, and nodded.

“Unlike the rest of the world, we have seen several years of continuous war against rebellious provinces in the West. The rest of the world boasts its expert sharp shooters and well drilled formations, but as Marshal Andros will tell you, experience is the true asset of a soldier. A soldier can be well trained and still very useless on the battlefield. Our forces are battle hardened and tested, forged in the flames of war.

However, I must plead for additional funding. While we do have several hundred thousand tested and veteran soldiers, we also lack proper equipment for conscript regiments. If we are to fight a major war, we will need more men, but so far, we’ve resorted to giving two rifles to every three men. Machine guns are numerous but still sparse within our vast ranks, and we lack the cavalry forces to make considerable pushes.”

Dupont shook his head.

“We do not have extra funds. Our treasury is already in debt, as you all know. We do not have extra money. We have withheld this vital information from our citizens and foreigners, but the truth will come out that we lack the l’argent to fight a prolonged war. We must win, and win quickly. We must organize. Send out letters to the other Central powers. We will be prepared for war when the Entente is still pulling its trousers on.”

To Fellow Central Powers
From the Office of the His Great Imperial Highness, Emperor Dupont of the Great Plains Empire, King of the Sanaerii Kingdoms, Chieftan of the Noir Tribals, Defender of Christian Faith and he who smites Injustice and all that is vile.

We wish to invite all of your nations and their respective delegates to St. Louisbourg for a meeting to discuss war strategy against the Imperialism of the Entente. Stop. We hope that you will make the time to attend. Stop.





Francois had ridden just past the borders of Gondran colonial territory, resting his regiment in an oasis of sorts while he pulled out his map to plan the next route of action. Shaking his head, he mumbled the name of the next town when he heard the tell tale sound of weapons being prepared.

He looked up to find his position surrounded by a number of desert roaming nomads native to the Noir Tribals of the East. Stepping forward to try to reason with them, he was shot, first in the eye, then stabbed in the stomach as the hooting and yowling natives emasculated the man and lay waste to his guards. Francois Evremonde was dead.
