Everyone focuses on the troops clinging to the rock face. They should be considerably easy to hit.

They would be if they kept still. Unfortunately they are swinging back and forth, sometimes jumping cracks and gorges.

They continue firing on the border patrol, despite their actions.

As if shooting one-handed weren't hard enough, physics implies that swinging around while shooting one handed would make hitting your intended target a nigh impossibility. As such, the Badguys hardly take any hits as they continue firing.

((They stop, shoot, move, shoot. =P))

The Badguy patrol might notice that the Sammealin are getting close and closer to the top of the cliff face.

They keep shooting anyway. They fire mortars every once in awhile.

Most of the mortars either land at the base of the cliff or above them. Despite the fact that none of the men have made the top of the cliff yet, a large, cannon sized gun is pointing town the cliff at the Badguy patrols. Soon two more join it.

They open fire, shooting shells at the Badguys, particularly the ones with mortar.

The cannons take out several Badguys.

Several more take their place, rolling out cannons of their own. They open fire.

Suddenly all of the Sammealin's drop to the ground, sliding down the rock face on some sort of blade.

More leap over the cliff face and join them. About Seventy men rush the Badguys, firing guns that still aren't visible to the Badguys.

Six cannons continue to fire at the opposing soldiers, the seventh having been destroyed by cannon fire.

Nathaniel shrugs.

"I do not know. I shall leave that to you to analyze and decide how to act upon. Moving on...what kind of aid will you be expecting? Supplies and troops, or a full scale declaration of war and invasion of Sammealin?"

Several Badguys fall, but even more come in their place.

All but three of the mortars are destroyed, and two of the eight cannons are destroyed as well.

"Whatever you can and want to offer, Nathaniel." Karlin says simply.

By now more then 150 Men have descended the cliff and are making their way between various points of cover to the Badguys. Firing as they go. Another cannon is destroyed.

The Skyrian convoy rolls along, approaching the Sammealin border.

A cannon's wheel is hit, but a little ingenuity has it firing again.

The flow of Badguys doesn't seem to be stopping.

A low hum can be heard in the distance.

Nathaniel leans back in his chair and steeples his fingers, as he often does.

"I am willing to go to war with Sammealin, under a couple of conditions. Firstly, I expect the same kind of involvement should Anglarctur become involved in any...unfortunate conflicts. Secondly, any conquered territory is split between our two nations."

"Of course, it's only customary." Karlin says, nodding.

A man clad in the same uniform as Karlin and his guards walks into the room and whispers into the God-King's ear. His face first frowns, but softens shortly after.

"Just as I expected. Sammaelin has attacked."

The Sammealin troops continue to charge the Badguy troops, surely coming rather close by now, despite the ducking and weaving. Also they have been firing with their arm mounted rifles.

Up on the cliff some sort of anti aircraft weapon is being set up. Meanwhile the remaining four cannons have been added to the destroyed ones, leaving 8 working cannons.

Nathaniel nods. "So, war has come. As we knew it would."

He can't help but grinning slightly, though he conceals it quickly. "A formal declaration of war will be made when I arrive at Castle Coffyn, and the Anglarcturian Legion will be deployed within days."

Illumar sends another message to Badguy, once again requesting an explanation for the dissapearences.

Considering that Karlin isn't in at the moment, Illumar will have to wait for a response.

As the Sammaelin troops reach th half-way point between their current position and the border of Badguy, several will probably notice the unpleasant effects of stepping on landmines.

Two gun turrets roll up on two separate, low plateaus and begin firing at the troops manning the cannons.

"Excellent. We can stay here for a bit longer, my troops have already received specific orders for if Sammaelin tried to breach our borders, so it should be safe for a few days."

The convoy reaches the borders. A man wearing long red robes with a stylized gear design on the front climbs out of the lead tank and looks around.

"Good. Next on the agenda...well, we've already covered the matter of supporting each other in war. Trade, then. I'm sure it would be beneficial to both our countries to open up some more trade routes. Anglarctur's international trade has been rather limited."

The troops manning the cannons are all but unreachable up on the cliff behind the cannons themselves.

Meanwhile, the rather diminished charge, 90 men now, in all, is in grenade throwing range at the moment.

No less then twenty grenades fly toward the Badguys, and these grenades will spray nails upon detonation.

((Hey, guys. Let's get this started up again, shall we?))

Roland reviews the reports of war finally breaking out between Sammaelin and Badguy. He reviews the situation carefully, his thoughts turning almost immediately to finding a way to benefit from this.

He decides to allocate even more funds to the military, as well as instructing his propaganda minister to begin unleashing his latest work.

The coming days see an intensification of efforts to promote national pride. Military life is glorified in government press as difficult but honourable work. A new phrase also emerges: "Greater Landsvall." It encompasses all of Landsvall, with the addition of those areas considered to be populated by ethnic Landsvalls. This is some of the surrounding area, with the notable exception of the ethnically separate Sammaelin and Badguy. Much is made of the Empire's duty to protect and support ethnic Landsvalls everywhere, even outside its present borders.

Reports also note that military research is going well, partly given the addition of several scientific minds who are not, shall we say, working of their own volition. Nevertheless, they are treated courteously and politely as long as they cooperate, and are even rewarded for success alongside those who actually chose to participate in Landsvall's military research elements.

((I have a question to ask, if I may. Two, really. I am most interested to join this game, as I have had an idea for a nation that I think is very, very (very, very) cool. The first question is, are any of the nations currently located in the Fennoscandian region of Europe? I ask because, as my nation is called the Fennoscandian Empire (there sure are a lot of empires in this game, but the People's Republic of Fennoscandia does not have the same ring to it, does it?) it is important that the that area is... uninterrupted by a rival nation. My second question is... do you guys think that this thread will go back to updating on a regular basis?))

((No, and I hope so. The actually area where all this is taking place really depends only on where the nations who join say they are. I'm just waiting for Nevr to respond myself. Hint, hint Nevr.))
