Taming the Wildlands (Discussion/Planning) [Closed]

Postby Atlantian Dominions » Mon Mar 25, 2019 11:39 am



This thread is closed to new entries, unless you are a member of the Kayfabeland region.

This is the OOC thread for Taming the Wildlands, an upcoming RP covering the invasion of the NPC nation of Honduragua by the Confederacy of Atlantian Dominions. This is a war RP with a pre-determined overall outcome but plenty of room for twists and turns on the way. Any nation can fill out the form at the bottom of this post to join, but nations who are members of Kayfabeland get priority for consideration. I reserve the right as OP to deny any nation entry into the RP and to close the RP to new entrants when we reach a critical mass of participants. The overall aim, as always, is to write interesting stories and have fun.

This is a map of the continent/island of Atlantia. The Confderacy of Atlantian Dominions is in blue. The Reublic of Honduragua is in the brown-yellow color. The names of capital cities are in bold.
Image

The Republic of Honduragua shares the island-continent of Atlantia with the Confederacy of Atlantian Dominions. It is an underdeveloped nation that struggles with poverty and corruption. It has been led for the last several decades by President Ramon “Papa” Monzano, an aging dictator. Monzano had been an international nuisance not worth dealing with until the late 1990s, when he formed an alliance with the El Patrón Cartel.

The El Patrón Cartel is a criminal organization primarily engaged in the cultivation and smuggling of illegal drugs, mainly opium and cocaine. The Cartel also engages in human trafficking, gun running, and a host of other illegal activities. The Cartel, which is led by Hector Lopez (who styles himself El Patrón), has thoroughly infested the Honduraguan government with corruption at every level, creating a state within the state.

Geographically, much of the country is covered in jungles. Settlements are largely confined to two coastal islands (Isla San Marcos and Isla San Lorenzo), the coastal plain, and along the San Luis River. This river runs from the mountains in the interior to the ocean, and is the main arteries connecting the three major cities: the inland capital of Hidalgo, the city of Chuparosa, and the port city of Tijata. A single major highway and railroad also connects the three cities. The city of Bonita, less connected to the rest of the country, mainly serves to cater to foreign tourists coming to vacation on the beaches or in the beautiful natural splendor of the jungles and mountains. These tourists are strongly advised not to wander south, for their own safety.

The Confederacy of Atlantian Dominions is a conservative, theodemocratic state. It is dominated by an alliance of large landholders, industrialists, and religious authorities. Socially it is dominated by the Church of the Dominion of Jesus Christ on Earth (commonly called the Dominion Church), which preaches that the Atlantian Dominions are the first bastion of the Kingdom of God on Earth. Atlantians are fiercely religious and highly xenophobic. The society has a strong social hierarchy based on wealth, race, and gender: only white men have the vote, and most people of color in the Dominions are immigrants doing menial labor for very low pay. Women are denied access to all formal levers of political and economic power. The Confederacy maintains few international relations beyond financing missionaries and propping up several dictatorships which embrace the Dominion Church and provide resources to the Atlantians.

Most Atlantians are engaged in agriculture as near-serfs for landholders. The cities, such as the capital of Cumberland or the port cities of Hansport or St. George, are home to a growing manufacturing sector producing machinery for domestic consumption and other goods for export. The Confederacy is currently led by President Jim Gilmore, who governs with the advice and consent of the Dominion Senate.

THE CONFLICT

Two events - which will be part of the opening post of the IC thread - set the Atlantian Dominions and Honduragua on a collision course. The first is the murder of two Atlantian sailors on shore leave in Tijata by Cartel members. The second is the discovery of a large shipment of drugs and people in an Atlantian harbor. When these two stories hit the news, war fever becomes irresistible. Sensing a chance to gain political capital through an easy war, the Dominion Senate will declare war on Honduragua. What starts as an exercise in chastisement will eventually become a war of conquest as the Confederacy of Atlantian Dominions decides to occupy the whole of Honduragua and annex it into the Confederacy. Along the way the Atlantian military will struggle to overcome its own unpreparedness and inflexibility in the face of an unconventional enemy, possibly with covert support from other nations.

How do you want to participate? I want to send mercenaries to help Honduragua

Who is joining the conflict? The Royal East India Company

Why are they getting involved? The Royal East India Company tries to make connections anywhere it might do business. My thought was that they have their own corrupt puppets in Honduragua, and see the Atlantian invasion as a threat to their bottom line. So they put together a mercenary force to bolster the Honduraguan military. The objective would be to make the campaign costly enough to force the Atlantians to give it up, preserving REIC influence.

What does their involvement look like? The Royal East India Company would use their wealth to bankroll a force of several hundred mercenaries, mostly from the militaries of developing nations, led by retired or discharged Royal Army officers from Avon. They would try to help the Honduraguans slow down or halt the Atlantian invasion.

How do you want to participate? I want to send spies and moles to both Honduragua and The Atlantian Dominion

Who is joining the conflict? The Bundesnachrichtendienst Federal Intelligence Service

Why are they getting involved? Bruzenland may appear as a peaceful country who is trying to slowly transform into a global Superpower, even if able to mantain a decent military force to defend it's borders, Bruzenland likes to use subterfuge and espionage to participate in foreign conflicts, Bruzenland knows that one of the most important elements in a war or in any conflict is information, it's their currency to make some deals under the shadows, deals that give them an edge when the time to make claims arises.

What does their involvement look like? The Federal Intelligence Service will send spies in the form of technicians, secretaries, desk jobs and even tourists as forms of observing battlefields and trying to send information back to Bruzenland. These spies are no civlians, each of them are agents of the FIS and are professionally trained in espionage and military tactics, they will attempt to avoid combat, but will always be silent observers and sources of information for the Bruzen Government. This espionage campaign is to allow Bruzenland to extort either winner of the coming conflict with resource exploitation rights by revealing sensible information to the public.

I want to be involved, but I don’t foresee being able to post super regularly, so I’m proposing a way for me to be involved that will look more like the occasional vignette in the thread instead of frequent posting.

How do you want to participate? Astoria doesn’t like seeing Atlantian Dominions expand, but it can’t get involved. Instead it wants to begin hunting down the Cartel.

Who is joining the conflict? The United States of Astoria

Why are they getting involved? The El Patrón Cartel is beginning to reach into Astoria, especially through Nuevo Rico. The Astorian government wants to cut off the flow of drugs from the source.

What does their involvement look like? A Marine Advanced Reconnaissance Company (MARC) special forces team, along with intelligence and support personnel. Their orders are to go after Cartel drug operations in the interior of the country. If possible they will try and extract Cartel leaders to bring them to trial in Astoria.

How do you want to participate?: We'll aid the Atlantian Dominions by sending over a spec-ops unit tasked with sabotaging and dismantling the cartel and the corrupt government it controls by destroying their cocaine production facilities, stockpiles etc.

Who is joining the conflict?: The United Batavian Kingdom

Why are they getting involved?: During a routine patrol in the Dutch Caribbean, border patrol intercepts a boat from the El Patrón Cartel which is transporting drugs and other contraband. After finding out that the El Patrón Cartel has been transporting drugs to the Dutch Caribbean for quite some time already, our government decides to take action in order to stop the transport of drugs. This action will require Batavia to take the fight to the heart of the drugs and crime: to the Republic of Honduragua

What does their involvement look like?: Silent Striker, our spec-ops unit, will be tasked with putting an end to the cartel and to the Honduraguan government it has infested with corruption, while also mantaining friendly relations with the Atlantean Dominions and other nations which are seeking to aid Antlantea. They'll be doing this by sabotaging and destroying important facilities of the cartel, disrupting smuggling operations and by exposing corrupt government officials.

Postby The Black Party » Mon Mar 25, 2019 8:01 pm

How do you want to participate? The Black Party wishes to aid the Atlantian Dominions by training, assisting, and militarizing local Atlantian police forces by dispatching units of the Security Police. Their overall goal is to restore law and order to core and gained Atlantian territory by combating both insurgent activity and suppressing or destroying the Cartel behind frontlines.

Who is joining the conflict? Security Police (Including child agencies) of The Black Party.

Why are they getting involved? For reasons other of expanding influence to the Atlantian Dominions, The Black Party wishes to further test the capabilities of their Security Police Forces abroad, as well as combat crime in general on neighbouring nations. Although publicly The Black Party seeks to maintain law and order in the warzone, covertly, it is nothing more then a test of capabilities and possibility to earn money by charging Atlantia for their policing services. Additionally, the Security Police is interested in maintaining a permanent presence on the Island to enlarge the jurisdiction of the federal organization.

What does their involvement look like? The Black Party wishes to deploy up to two police regiments (10k) policemen, comprised of technicians, paramedics, firefighters, and engineers, including whatever machinery and fighting vehicles necessary. Their sole duties would remain behind the frontlines. Although they are capable of engaging alongside Atlantian Forces as a pseudo-Military police, this is not the intention.

How do you want to participate? To restore peace and order to the area. They will attempt to evacuate citizens and if needed fight both sides in order to separate the two from each other.

First off those troop numbers are going to need to go down regardless, to under 10,000 at least. As for your idea, I don't think the idea of barging in and trying to fight both sides really works here, especially since I hadn't envisioned this RP as including major combat with another nation. Also the very pro-Cartel government of Honduragua isn't going to invite you to set up shop close to the Cartel's bases of operation. But what if you deploy around the city of Bonita to protect the foreign tourists? That would be something that my nation would accept and that Honduragua woudn't oppose. It also would be a way of narratively dealing with Bonita, which I hadn't figured out yet, and keeping the military focus on the cities on the San Luis River.

How do you want to participate? I want to provide troops to assist in the invasion of Honduragua.

Who is joining the conflict? The Kingdom of Mount Zeon

Why are they getting involved? Father John wants to show strength after losing the Amber Reyes War. He also sees this as a helping to bring civilization to heathens.

What does their involvement look like? Approximately 2,500 soldiers, who will be sent over once there is somewhere secure for them to land. I imagine that they will mostly be used on secondary fronts, because they will not be particularly well-trained and they will be very unused to the jungle environment.

Just a few questions,

Do the cartels participate in the international drug trade?

Does the Honduraguan government actively supply and arm the cartels?

Do the cartels engage in acts of piracy, to include hijackings and kidnapping foreign sailors?

And what is the population of Honduragua and how large is its military forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, etc.), Including Paramilitary/Narcos? Maybe provide a complete ORBAT. Please.

To answer the second question first, I hope to have it up by the start of this weekend.

To answer the first question, you’ll be able to control your own troops, with the understanding that the Atlantians will ICly expect any foreign support to follow their lead. OOCly what I’m looking for is that whenever there’s a big battle coming up, those involved will use the OOC thread here to work out the details. The emphasis is on telling the story, not trying to win or outsmart each other on the OOC level.

Yes, the Cartel participates in the international drug trade. It deals mainly in cocaine and opium, which are grown in large quantities in Honduragua.

The Honduraguan government has no official relationship with the Cartel. However, corruption has permeated every level of the government. So plenty of supplies and weapons that are intended to go to the Honduraguan military or state end up in Cartel hands.

The Cartel itself doesn’t engage in piracy. It does engage in human trafficking. It also has no issue in working with other criminal groups that do engage in piracy.

As for numbers regarding population and military of Honduragua, I don’t have specifics for you. The country is populous but poor, and the military consists of an army called the Honduragua Defense Force (HDF), a Coast Guard with no vessel larger than a frigate, and a laughably small Air Defense Force. For the Defense Force, let’s say around 20,000 soldiers of generally low quality. As for the Cartel, it has a militia known as the Farm Patrol, let’s spitball around 8,000 soldiers who range from local thugs keeping the poppy field hands in check to foreign mercenaries protecting Cartel leadership.

A CVLN is a light aircraft carrier that will be used to transport the troops to the island. It will mainly be used for a staging area for our troops. It can be removed if it is felt to be too big for this RP.

The Nation of Kandonica is a police state and feels as though any large active criminal organizations throughout the world could be a threat to our safety and thus we usually involve ourselves in these matters to destroy the threat before it can hurt us.

No that’s fine, though I will ask you to reduce your overall troops to under 10,000 soldiers. Once that’s done, you’re accepted.

As for the Cartel, it has a militia known as the Farm Patrol, let’s spitball around 8,000 soldiers who range from local thugs keeping the poppy field hands in check to foreign mercenaries protecting Cartel leadership.


What is the nation of Honduragua? (Land mass and population). It's army size makes it seem quite small.


I realized I switched out some of my ships when I first posted this and left out a couple.

I don't have exact figures for either, but I'd say the population is somewhere around 11 million or so. It's not a tiny country but it's not massive either. Big enough for there to be lots of jungle that isn't populated or heavily used. There's a map under the first spoiler in the OP.

APPLICATION

How do you want to participate? Assist the Atlantian Invasion of Honduragua and fight the influence of drug cartels, especially those who target foreign nationals and support groups who engage in piracy around the world. Support will mainly be in the form of a naval blockade of Honduragua, supported by a brigade of Devontan Marines and a Coastal Defense Force Battalion meant to conduct operations on the islands and coastal areas of Honduragua.

Who is joining the conflict? The Grand Republic of The United States of Devonta. A joint military operation between the Devontan Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coastal Defense Force. In support of operations conducted by the Atlantian Armed Forces and her allies.

Why are they getting involved? Drug cartels in Honduragua have long supported once powerful drug cartels in the Devontan state of San Julia, Devontan Guinea, and the Devontan-Corazanian border. This action will weaken the drug flow into Devonta and also keep Devontan shipping safe abroad.

What does their involvement look like?

The ground component is fine, but you’re bringing quite a lot of naval firepower. What if you dropped the submarines and maybe the fleet carrier? If your nation is ICly worried about air support we can work out a deal to base Devontan aircraft at airbases on the islands, once they’re captured, or at Atlantian airbases prior to that.

The IC Thread is up! If your listed on the OP of this thread under “Accepted Nations” feel free to begin posting. Please use this OOC thread to talk through things so everyone stays on the same page.

For example: the OP has the declaration of war and some planning. My next post will detail the opening air strikes against Honduragua and the final preparations of the amphibious task force. In between I hope that people start laying the ground work for their own entrances in the conflict.

Thank you. I dropped the carrier and a few support vessels, including one of the submarine wolfpacks. But can I keep one wolfpack, I love RPing submarine warfare.

Edit: Will began working on a post tomorrow.
