July RC- Regroup
Challenge:
Show your character regrouping with allies. Maybe this is as simple as running into an old friend in the street or as serious as mustering a troop for battle. These allies could be any person(s) that you do or do not know...as long as they are not enemies.

If you have any questions about this challenge, feel free to ask here.

To be clear - the last day to post your July RC creations is the 31st of this month.
Please remember to post a link to your entry in this thread.



The following information does not directly relate to the challenge; it is simply an update with the results from the last challenge:


The formal treaty that is in progress between Mythron and Nerogue has spurred people to confirm and/or strengthen their relationships between their allies. Nerogueians are visiting Mythronian cities and vice versa. Rainosians and Enalicans are developing a safe water zone between them for more secure trading between them.

But in Rainos, the recent abandonment from the sack of Meids has people questioning Bartok's leadership...Rainosians are also allowed to instead show how his character reacts to the news and what action(s) he takes in response.

Political Update: The Treaty of Meids

Bartok and Sadon met last month when Bartok offered to end the invasion of Meids. Despite each side's belief in its ability to hold the province through force of arms, the two kings agreed on the following terms:
- Meids and the waters north of Mythron are now a neutral zone - Rainosians can't raid there, but Mythron can't stop Rainosian ships from passing through the area.
- Each country will inform the other of troop and supply movements in the neutral zone to prevent suspicion of surprise attacks.
- Rainos has free reign to land in and deal with Bodus without Mythronian interference
- To uphold the terms of the treaty, Mythron and Rainos have divided an island near the City of Meids in half. Each side has a governor, fleet and garrison of a thousand soldiers to patrol the waters.
- Rainos formally withdraws all support from the Black Lotus (inviting remnants to join its own ranks instead). The Rainosian-Lotus army near Meids will withdraw by the end of July.

The following is a transcript of the meeting between Bartok and Sadon, written live in the chat room by their respective faction leaders:

/Two kings, each watched from a short distance by a couple of bodyguards, meet in the garden of an abandoned manor. The king in green greets the king in blue with an inclination of his head that could almost be taken for a short bow./

Sadon: Welcome. Shall we begin?

Bartok: Gladly. It has been too long since I met one of your line without my blade drawn. Your father and I were good friends once, before the war.

S: Well, I can see that friendship did not last long...

B: Unfortunately, Mythros had a knack for upholding the interests of his people, and that came all too often at the expense of mine. Fortunately, those days are behind us.

S: Yes, I will be happy to rebuild any lost honor of my kingdom. But please tell me, why did you ask me to meet with you?

B: Well... would you believe me if I said that I am an old man, tired of bloodshed and looking for world peace?

S: I would say you are a bloody liar, and a fool that will very soon feel Mythron's wrath.

B: Ah, there is Richardson in you after all. As it happens, that is half of the truth. The Black Lotus was an affront to all that is honorable in this world, and I can persuade my countrymen to leave your province of Meids in peace. There are, of course, conditions connected with this offer.

S: Conditions? Please, enlighten me.

B: My clerks have the official treaty drawn out, but the main item is the transfer of an island.

S: What island are you referring to? Let me be clear though, if it is land you are looking for....you will not find it in Mythron.

B: The territory in question is not technically /in/Mythron - it is a small patch of land not far from the port of Meids. I ask that it be transferred to the throne of Rainos for a trading post and a sort of embassy to the inhabitants of the northern coast. You will agree to keep your forces off the island and respect the right of my countrymen to trade peacefully and make landings in Outlaw territory and the steward I put in control of the island will direct Rainosian raiders away from Meids. In fact, the entire province will be out of bounds so long as my sailors go unmolested.

S: I refuse to sacrifice anymore land to your "kingdom." I will however motion that we create a trading post on said island that will be non-baised. We shall peacefully exchange goods, and in times of war the island will be left untouched. Any violation or military act on the island will result in a revoking of the treaty and an immediate counter defense on said attackers.

B: Considering the size of the forces gathering near the city, I would not have thought you would object so much to the loss of one small island. All the same, I will require a private port capable of supporting a garrison.

S: It will be given to you, assuming you agree to MY conditions.

B: Your conditions? Please, go ahead.

S: We will agree to transform said island into a mutual trading post. The post will be uninhabited by any military operations, and if said post is attacked; both kingdoms will equally defend it. Any housing, transporting, or gathering of soldiers from either kingdom will result in revoking of the treaty. Also, general law of the island will be handle by Mythron with no interference from Rainos.

B: Your sentiment is noble, but it is imperative that the island can protect itself and host armed forces. The first reason is the relocation of the Black Lotus remnants that beset Meids - a long sea journey takes time to arrange, and if a camp is made available close to hand, they can leave your shore and their former cause behind all the sooner. Second, your subjects may jump to obey your commands or at least think carefully before disobeying them, but mine are harder of head -without a garrison and ships, I have no way to keep the peace between my raiders and your barons. Third and finally, there is a threat to both our nations in those waters, one that I may have need to lead troops against - the Organization of the Outlaws.

S: If you cannot control your own people you have no right being a leader in my opinion, but besides my political views...I might hear some truth in your argument. I will agree to let 500 soldiers from each of our armies inhabit the island for personal defense in times of needs.

B: Richardson, I can see that there is a gap of understanding. You, the man trying to protect his country, do not want a Rainosian fortress off your shoreline. I, the man who can choose whether or not to take the army off your doorstep, want to end enmity between Rainos and Mythron in the northern seas so that I and my countrymen may deal with the third party of Bodus. Although Rainos has what most would consider to be leverage in this case, I can see that we will have to meet both conditions if we are to chill the war of Meids.

S: Even if your troops are but a days march away from my city, I can crush your forces. It is I who am offering you a safe retreat that will benefit us both. I suggest we compromise, we both are allowed a garrison and fleet, we will equally defend the island in times of crisis, but most importantly we will use this island only for the exporting of goods and as minimal military operations as possible. Can we agree on these terms?

B: I can agree to something... similar... with more flexibility. The island, as small as it is, will go to Rainos as a halfway point for traffic to and from Bodus. I have a trustworthy and capable governor in mind who bears no ill will to Mythron - in fact, he campaigned as a volunteer for one of your generals before he inherited land from his Rainosian uncle. His garrison will consist of no more than one thousand men as will the Mythronian-controlled fortress in the port. Given the strategic nature of the island, both of our nations will be allowed to channel troops through it in times of war provided that notice and an accurate count of soldiers and goods is provided to the other party, subject to inspection by the island's garrisons. Finally, this contract shall hold up even in periods of war between Rainos and Mythron, but will be broken if the regional cease-fire is disturbed.

S: I will agree to all but one of your terms. I refuse to hand full authority of the island over to Rainos. Instead I propose that we both put in place our own selected governors which will have equal power. I will uphold all your other terms assuming you agree to this.

B: I will accept a division of the island and its port. Half will fall under Rainosian rule and half under Mythronian law with the boundary decided by a mixed team of surveyors. Agreed?

S: Agreed.

B: Thank you. My scribes will present a formal copy for your signature, and I will go to the Lotus at once. It has been a pleasure doing business, Mythron.

S: You as well Rainos, I am glad we have finally been able to put some issues behind us.

/Sadon motions for a younger lad to come fourth with a golden ring on a deep blue pillow/

S: Let this be the beginning of understanding for Rainos and Mythron.

B: Thank you. Now, I think I have something... ah, yes.

/Bartok pulls a large blue gemstone from his pocket. Sadon gives an underwhelmed face, but moves past it with acceptance./

B: Don't worry, that's a real one. The enchanted versions looked much more attractive. Understanding begins, and someday acceptance may even follow. Farewell.

S: Farewell Bartok, may we never meet in hostile circumstances.

The challenge relates to regrouping with people who aren't your enemies (allies definitely fall in to this category). Does that answer your question?

Yes, I'm posting a comment in the Nerogue group pretty soon.

You can meet up with some Rainosians, then! A lone Outlaw can always find an ally or ten in our fair land, as long as he or she doesn't run into one of the Spines (who kill Outlaws on the spot because of some vague family issue) or praise the Organization too loudly (the very name goes against the values of some Rainosians).

Build a quick 8x8 vig just for the sake of entering! This might be bad advice, but it's okay to do a rush job every now and again. It's relaxing, too - I have more fun building small, experimental MOCs than large, complicated ones.
