OOC | ICOOC | ICOOC | ICOOC | IC
*For the sake of this thread and for Inferno Over Gael, while the primary OP is whoever makes the opening post; Balnik, Dormill and Stiura, and Roendavar shall be considered the primary Co-OPs with respect to plot and story development. We started this project with Shadow and we would prefer to keep a majority of the story's focus in our control. However, since we at TWI pride ourselves on effective collaboration, all TWI map members are welcome to be involved in this story directly or in stories related to the Tragedy of Gael.

Welcome one and all, The Western Isles and NationStates alike, to Terror Over Gael, the second dedicated story and third so far in the Tragedy of Gael saga. I am your most humble host, Dormill and Stiura, and it is my high hope that you will join me in crafting and enjoying a tale of mystery, intrigue, drama, and conflict as the nations of Gael try to grapple with the aftermath of the events of Oh Night Unholy, Shadow Over Gael, and the News of TWI. The following sections of this OP will overview the situation in Gael immediately following the events of Shadow (alongside recapping it) as well as presenting a preliminary plot overview for the construction of a collaborative plot for this RP. This RP will require plenty of time to plan and more to post in character for given the time dedication of all involved. An in-character thread will be announced and launched in due time but for now, please use this thread to plan, organize, and hype for what should be TWI's next biggest RP.
Section 1: What is Gael?
Image
Gael and the outlying islands of the north Southern Sea, the west Eterna Sea, and east Argean Sea

Gael is one of the three primary continents (or subcontinents if you will) of the Western Isles, situated east of Argus, west of the Eterna Sea region, and north of the Southern Sea region. It is the second-largest and second-most-populous continent of the region and is home to some of the strongest and most vibrant economies in TWI. Originally settled by proto-Argean peoples in pre-history before developing into hundreds more distinct groups, Gael is home to some of the most diverse communities in the region as well as the largest home of European and Asian settlers in the form of the north coast nations of Belantica, Dormill and Stiura, Oscotia (technically in the Eterna), and Sorzandia.

All is not well however in this seemingly tranquil continent, a Shadow now looms over it spreading Terror wherever it falls too close to the ground, from the cultist attacks in Roendavar to the Saela Spring and more, fear is beginning to spread that Gael's stability is waning fast. What was the cause of all this? Who's to blame? In a continent of vibrant democracies and liberalism, why does autocracy have a growing reach? Come with me and explore some recent history.
Section 2: A History of Gael in short
Thanks in large part to the collaborative nature of TWI's roleplay, the history of any region is subject to fluctuations as people join, leave, or retcon their nations or their relationships with the region as a whole. This history is a recap of what is relevant to the Tragedy of Gael storyline first, and an accurate recollection of the collaborative history of Gael second. Any necessary corrections will be made as they are needed.
To simplify the recollection of history, this section will rely on a numbered list until proper prose can be added to replace them.

Welcome back to Terror Over Gael

It's been a while, hasn't it? So what happened when I launched this thread back last December? The simple answer is school but a longer answer is that I had to refocus my energy on my real life obligations and wasn't able to sit down and think about what I was going to do with this RP until very recently, and today, I have the beginning of Terror ready to write. But what's a TWI RP without collaboration? So, let me start the tapestry, and feel free to contribute whatever ideas you feel like as we go.
Terror's place and plot

Terror over Gael is set almost one year after the attack on the Dociara Grand Station and the attack on the Afrail of 2020. In the year since these attacks the three leaders in Gael involved in these actions have been considering their next moves carefully, the game has only just begun and the strategy has been slowly but surely forming. As the second in a trilogy, Terror over Gael represents the rising action of the overall Tragedy of Gael story.
Image

This means that the incidents and tensions that were incited during Shadow over Gael will start to compound with new complications; Dormill and Stiura will have to reconcile its security role in Gael as the Eastern Tripartite solidifies, Roendavar will have to consider if it can safely maintain its demilitarized policy, and Balnik will have to learn how to face off against its rivals without triggering a third Imperial War. All of these and more will consist of Terror's overall plot, each of us will have to face challenges that question the very nature of Gael's status quo and will boil over into Inferno over Gael, the war between Balnik and the United Republics over the trajectory of regional power.
Plot details

This is where a lot of community effort will come in as we figure out what kind of specific plot Terror over Gael will follow. Fortunately, I've come up with a framework that we can start from, starting with
  • TWI security experts, scholars, and certain political figures will attend a region-wide security conference and exposition which will set the tone for security policy in several nations and be an open presentation of the regional military-industrial complex's newest and best toys. If anyone wants to be known in the security world, they will attend the 2022 International District Security Conference. Now with an OOC: viewtopic.php?ns=1&f=4&t=399276&p=39652450#p39652450
  • During the IDSC, President Dyson, who is attending as the opening keynote speaker, will announce a Doraltic-Roendavar joint security project aimed at increasing their readiness to respond to future threats (like Balnik) and prevent the previous year's tragedies.
  • This announcement will have the side effect of upsetting the status quo of eastern Gael security, where it was once assumed that Roendavar would remain neutral and both Balnik and D&S would remain uninvolved. Faronna changed that and now D&S and Roendavar will respond by strengthening themselves. Balnik will not respond kindly to this development, an anti-Tripartite with Dormill at its center will render the Aprosian-Balniki-Lesvan experiment moot, and Dovesti Chernobog will take whatever effort he can to prevent this from forming.
  • At the same time, whispers of a coup against Chernobog within small parts of the Balniki officer corps begin to spread, they all suspect Teklak involvement in Roendavar, and they are incensed that they allowed Dormill and Stiura to kill one of their own (Max Rudin, who was in reality killed by Teklak officers) even if he was a traitor. This will put pressure on Chernobog to act more often and more openly to prevent them from removing him and starting a war against Dormill and Stiura themselves.
  • Also at the same time, the Republic of Eppendorf, bordering Roendavar and part of Balnik, is holding its state-level election. It is expected that this will be a bellwether for the federal elections at the end of the year and some politicians expect the Republic's government will shift towards the new party alignment (the one between Dyson's Forwards and the anti-federalist Democrats). While not immediately relevant to Terror, this inclusion is meant to set up a line of attack into Doraltic politics to sow terror and confusion and to possibly force Dyson to play a move he might not want to.
  • Like with Shadow over Gael, the players will be the intelligence community as they try to keep their shadow war where they can control it, with each complication (as pictured above) undermining their ability to keep their war from spreading out into a full on military conflict, which will ultimately fail by some means I want to discuss.
  • Terror over Gael will ultimately end with the start of the open war between Balnik and Roendavar, just before Dormill and Stiura has the time to respond which will begin Inferno over Gael.

Some extra expectations

While I dearly hope I can get Terror started before the start of next month I can't make any hard assurances other than I'll try. Hopefully, if things go well and I still have the motivation to keep this story moving, I want this to be well on its way before the end of the summer when I have to go back to school. As for the transition between this and Inferno, they will probably happen at the same time In Character so either they'll happen at the same time as IRL with the Inferno IC thread, or its plot will be carried in another way while the detailed RP is done later. Further discussion on that will be saved for the Inferno OOC thread which will be posted after Terror's IC is underway.

Absolutely, I want this to have as far-reaching consequences as possible. As for how I'm not exactly sure yet but I would initially imagine it would be in the later stages of complications as more people look closer into the situation going on. Something like an investigative journalist putting the pieces together from what happened in Roendavar last year to average people getting in the way or being caught in the crossfire. There are many ways so I'm open to seeing what you would want to be involved in with this RP.

I see, I see, well I am very open for Uprea to take a part in all of this. I would imagine Uprea (as in almost every conflict) would hold a neutral position.
Especially since I understand that there will be war in Gael. Uprea will (contrary to what happened in the past) not go into an isolationist state during times of war but actively try to negotiate and act as an arbitrator while maintaining a state of armed neutrality.
As for the part I could take during Terror over Gael, my idea was either have something happen out of the perspective of one Uprean, which then escalates into a national issue or just have government officials discuss about the issue and plan potential responses.
Regarding the first option my idea was an uprean diplomat goes missing amidst the intelligence war in Gael, the blame gets shifted from party to party as Uprea struggles with its nation being pulled into a war they want no part of. In the end the guilt cannot be determined. This could continue into Inferno over Gael as Uprea sees the need for an arbitrator to avoid an all out world war as nations are forced to choose a side. I want Uprea to take on more and more of an international role, so this could be one more opportunity for Uprea to show its arbitrator role in international conflicts.
As the RP is just beginning and outside nations, like you said, will probably first start to play a role in the later stages when the intelligence war starts, I will have some time to think about if I would like to flesh this idea out, or if I will go into a different direction. Maybe you could give me some pointers as well, as to what would better fit into the RP.

Is this RP still open and can I join?
WAR IS PEACE

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

A totalitarian, socialist, fascist society ruled by a ruthless dictator known as Big Brother, the First Triumvir Donovan Xavier. The omnipresent and endlessly oppressive government is made up of four ministries: The Ministry of Truth, the Ministry of Love, the Ministry of Peace, and the Ministry of Surplus.

Takes up present-day Russia, China, Mongolia, Vietnam, and Taiwan.

While I am highly encouraged to make this as open as possible to TWI, the specific nature of the plot and the writing requirements I ask from participants are limiting factors. Like with Uprea, there are shockwaves from this is certainly something I want to see spread across TWI and that's where this RP is the most open. As for a specific role for you to play, that ultimately depends on answering these questions:
  • Does the Orwell Society care about what goes on in Gael?
  • If it does care about Gaeltic affairs, is it well informed about the relationship between Balnik and the United Republics?
  • Does Big Brother want to take sides in the conflict between Balnik and D&S?
  • What kind of capabilities does the Orwell Society have in acting in Gael in support of whatever policy objective it has?
Otherwise, reacting to the events in this RP as they become open knowledge (and I'll indicate when) is more than good in my book for interacting with this RP. Balnik, Roen, and I all want this RP to have wide-reaching impacts and embed itself into TWI canon for the future and anything that expands the impact across the region works for me.
Uprea wrote:Maybe you could give me some pointers as well, as to what would better fit into the RP.

I do actually have a role in mind for you if you're interested. Part of the opening of this RP will be the kidnapping of a Doraltic Bureau agent by Balniki intelligence via a criminal syndicate. Details on the syndicate are sparse for now but I have thought of having the kidnapping happen in your territory, meaning you'll be on the front of investigating the kidnapping and tracing it back to whoever ordered it and why which will require interfacing (or even confronting) the Bureau for information. Eventually, this external investigation and other events will drag this conflict out of the shadows and into the open war of Inferno over Gael.

Sounds awesome, I am in!
The POV I currently have in mind is that out of a investigator taking the lead on the case and maybe a few side roles. I imagine this RP would take serious collaboration on the planning part, as to what information the investigation could get out of the bureau? What leads can the detective find? What methods of investigation are necessary? etc.
I think it would be best if I asked the questions as we go along in the RP, for otherwise things are pretty stagnant in the way the can evolve.
One more question I do have, is if Uprea would consequently get dragged in the war as a participant or if it is possible for Uprea to remain in the investigative corner and stay neutral in the war?
Not staying neutral in the war, would mean a massive governmental crisis and immense pushback from the uprean populace I would have to figure out. It is possible but if avoidable, that would be preferable.

Now that Terror is opened I can answer your questions.

"I imagine this RP would take serious collaboration on the planning part, as to what information the investigation could get out of the bureau? What leads can the detective find? What methods of investigation are necessary? etc. "
Yes, we'll need to talk about this as your investigation develops but my current plans are that the knowledge of the investigation remains within Uprea until someone leaks it to our Embassy, which spreads the info back to the Bureau, then to Dyson. From that point forward, Dyson, the Bureau, and your investigators will start to work together on figuring out the source of the kidnapping and the goal (as revealed in my opening post). Details will be determined as we RP.

"Uprea would consequently get dragged in the war as a participant or if it is possible for Uprea to remain in the investigative corner and stay neutral in the war?"
It is ultimately possible for Uprea to remain out of the war. We are not formal allies and though Dormill and Stiura will try to appeal to the League to intervene for peace enforcement, this does not oblige anybody in the region to join the war.

This will be a major shift in Gaelitic geopolitics. Kilat should be far enough to weather the direct conflicts, but the shifting geopolitcs stance (considering Kilat ties with the three nations and Ainslie) might intertwine Kilat in minor ways. Also economically, i assume such sign of instability might prompt some market downturns? Like rising tensions between russia and ukraine? Or would it be less candid?

Yes, expect rising tensions to become openly prominent around the mid-point of this RP and subsequent market woes from there through Inferno. Overall we're looking at a pretty large recession and market scare so if there's any industry that is particularly vulnerable right now or may be overvalued, they're gonna be in some serious pain by around the end of this year.

Additionally the outcome of Inferno will obviously see a major upset in the supply chain from Western Gael so anybody reliant on Balniki or Doraltic manufacturing (which is most people East of Argus) is also going to be seeing a lot of pain.

This whole story seems super interesting! Since San Jimenez is increasingly dependent on Gael for trade and economic survival, how would the country fit into this RP? Is there any room for involvement in Terror Over Gael for SJ? I know SJ would feel the implications of war so I would really like to be involved with Inferno Over Gael when that time comes.

Since Costavozka has a somewhat close proximity to Gael and tensions with Lesva and Balnik (because of the Eastern Tripartite), would this be alright with you? I feel that while Costavozka might not have positive relations with some members of the ET, the stability in that sector of the region would upset the trade flow, and hurt Costavozka’s economy, so therefore stability would be in Costavozka’s best interests. This would also mean that there is a possibility for involvement in Inferno Over Gael. I guess what I want to know is: is there any room for Costavozka in the Tragedy of Gael saga?
