Jerusalem, Macedonian Empire - 23 January 2022

In an alley somewhere in Jerusalem.

Tall Arab man: أهلا

Mysterious hooded figure: Hello Ashan. It's good to finally meet you. I trust you received my message.

Ashan: Yes sir. And I'd be happy to be of service to your cause.

Sir: Splendid. Well, our time is short, so we must be hasty.

Ashan: What do you mean? Is there something wrong?

Sir: No, nothing we hadn't planned for. It's just that Tamashii and his pesky boy band have gotten their clammy hands into my business. But trust me, it really isn't an issue, I have already sent men to dispose of their pitiful agency. They'll be sorry they ever intervened.

Ashan: Well then sir, what would you have me to do?

Sir: Unfortunately, although Tamashii is no problem, there is in fact a larger spanner in the works.

Ashan: What's that sir?

Sir: Alexander the Bighead has gone and started a war. A war is the last thing I need. We must hurry to repair their relations before Napoleon launches his invasion.

Ashan: Why are you so opposed to war?

Sir: If the other world leaders get war into their tiny little brains, they'll squash me as soon as I rise back to power.

Ashan: But sir, if everyone is side-tracked and distracted by a war, then it will produce the ideal social climate for you to rise from the ashes.

Sir: Ashan, you are a genius! I will be known worldwide as the Phoenix Sultan! I will rise from my own ashes. So Ashan, I am sending you to Sana'a. I want you to stir up a protest among the cult there. Pay their leader as many naturas as necessary to make their cult want to join the war.

Ashan: Which side do I convince them to join?

Sir: Umm. Tell them to join Napoleon and begin a great invasion and expansion of the Caliphate through the Macedonian Empire. We want to throw the Veggie Caliphate deep into civil conflict. We want to tare their empire apart. If Miecraftman decides not to join, we can accuse him of siding with Macedon, and we'll convince the cult and their millions of followers to rise up against the democratic government. We will get them to cede from the Caliphate, join the war, and spread it worldwide. Then amidst all the confusion, I will re-establish the greatest country the world has ever known - the Viniga Sultanate, with me as its leader.

Ashan: That is a great plan, sir. I'll go to Sana'a at once. What will you be doing?

Viniga: I will stir up the citizens of Saudi Arabia against the Veggie's. They will become pro war and pro Grandian as well.

Ashan: Good luck, sir. Long live the Sultan.

Viniga (quietly to himself): Good luck too, Ashan. And for your sake and mine, I hope you succeed - your life depends on it...

Probably where Viniga and Ashan met.

Greek coast, Macedonian Empire - 24 January 2022

Napoleon: Colonel.

Colonel: Yes, sir?

Napoleon: I want a full scale invasion. Don't stop until we can achieve unconditional surrender.

Colonel: Ok sir. Any other orders?

Napoleon: Take civilian hostages to force their hand. We'll see what those scums can come up with when they face the might of the Grande Armee!

Napoleon turns to his army and raises a fist in the air. The 4,255 soldiers that make up Napoleon's army cheer and begin the long march into the Macedonian Empire.

The Grandians make 2 naval landings: one in the north near the city of Parga, and one in the south near the city of Pyrgos. The 2 fronts push along the coast towards each other, with the southern one especially making progress. Within days, the southern front reaches and captures the strategic city of Patras, and most importantly the Rion-Antirion Bridge. Before the Macedonian army is mobilised, the Grandians connect the two fronts around the Ambracian Gulf. Then as a joint force, they push eastwards but are slowed in progress by the mountains.

Greek coast

Meanwhile in Athens, Macedonian Empire - 25 January 2022

RB1: thegoatisgoaty! Napoleon and his army have invaded Greece!

tgig: What!?!? How many soldiers do they have?

RB2: We estimate around 10,000 in total.

tgig: Then send at least 50,000 of our own to stop them from advancing. I need to talk with Napoleon and settle this.

RB3: Well, we already spoke to Alexander, and he said that Napoleon is weak and useless and we shouldn't bother stopping him yet, because at least he is distracted from our expedition through the Amazon.

tgig: Expedition? Amazon? Is this a joint exploration with EMG? Why don't I know about this?

RB4: Err... not exactly. The EMG are unaware. Alexander and some of his finest men are searching the Amazon for an orb that he claims will give him world domination.

tgig: And exploration in the Amazon without MG's permission? What is he doing? He's delusional! I must find out who is behind this scheme before it escalates even further.

RB5: Well, the Grande Armee has taken civilian hostages. It seems he is trying to force your hand in this war.

tgig: Oh dear. Send 50,000 soldiers to push them back and I'll try to defuse the war with Napoleon.

The Grandians took hostages to force the Macedonians hand

Hobart, Great Southern Empire - 26 January 2022

Emperor Geopro (at his national/international eddress): G'day to all the noble citizens of the GSE. Fair dinkum', it's Australia day mates, and to celebrate we are giving out free lamingtons, meat pies, and chicken parmis. Also every LGA in the country will be hosting a bbq with snags, steaks, hamburgers and kebabs.

As for those from other countries, I'm exporting 1 million packets of Tim Tams to encourage you to celebrate the day with us. Enjoy everyone, and happy Australia Day mates!

A mouth-watering lamington

Abuja, Veggie Caliphate - 27 January 2022

Tamashii: Sir! MiecraftMan!

MiecraftMan: Yes Tamashii? What is it?

Tamashii: We have received an anonymous letter disclosing the location of Sultan Viniga.

MiecraftMan: Great! Where is he?

Tamashii: According to the letter he is hiding in a small house on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

MiecraftMan: Ok then. Take a task force of how ever many men you need, and take him down.

Tamashii: Do I execute him, or take him hostage?

MiecraftMan: Take him as hostage, but if he resists, and puts you or your men in danger, then don't hesitate to finish him once and for all.

Tamashii: Ok, I'll leave at once.

MiecraftMan: Good luck!

Tamashii and his task force of 20 men travel to Jerusalem, and search for hours for the correct house. ONce they finally find a house that matches the description perfectly, they plan their attack. Tamashii and his men slowly surround the house, and several snipers are positioned atop various nearby buildings. The men expertly approach the house in utter silence, and Tamashii gestures for one of them to kick down the door. They all prepare their pistols ready for the attack. The man kicks down the fragile door and Tamashii and his men storm in.

Tamashii: Viniga! Your time is up! Surrender peacefully and we will spare your life!

Viniga: If you want to get me, you'll have to catch me!

Tamashii and his men scan the interior of the room, but can't find Viniga. They narrow down his position to behind an upturned wooden table. The men creep over with their guns ready, but Viniga is nowhere to be seen. All they find is a voice recording playing Viniga's voice. One of the men accidentally trips on something hidden under a rug. He removes the rug, and discovers a trap door.

Tamashii: He must have seen us coming and escaped through the trap door with the voice recording to fool us. Very cunning.

Tamashii and his men climb down through the opening and down a tall ladder to a tunnel in the bottom. They begin to travel through the tunnel but when they round the corner, they come to a dead end.

Tamashii: We've been fooled again! Quickly, back to the ladder!

Tamashii and his men race back to the ladder. They look up to the trap door and see a man at the top. He smirks at them and promptly slams the trap door. Tamashii and his men hear it lock as they helplessly stand in the dark at the bottom. Something lands on the ground near them with a clunk. It is the voice recorder.

Sultan Viniga: Well Tamashii, I thought you would be smarter than that. Didn't think I could fool you so easily with an anonymous letter and a mysterious trap door. Oh well, enjoy your time under Jerusalem, you won't be seeing the light of day for a long, long time... or ever again.

Tamashii smashes the voice recorder in his anger.

Tamashii: Don't worry men. We still have those snipers out there remember? They'll come for us.

Tamashii pulls out a two-way radio and tries to radio the snipers. No one replies.

An old mud house in Kashmar, Iran. Could be like the one in Jerusalem, but you'll have to use your imagination.

London, British Isles Empire - 28 January 2022

Royal informer: Sir, there has been a major explosion in the Grando-Macedonian War.

BGG: Explosion! Where? How big? How many casualties?

Royal informer: No, not a literal explosion. Just a major development in the war.

BGG: Oh, what happened?

Royal informer: A large militant cult in the Veggie Caliphate has risen up and used their influence and heaps of road blocks to take control of a large area in Yemen and Saudi Arabia. Because of this, the Veggie Caliphate is in civil war. We don't know what MiecraftMan will do: he might repress them with the military, or let them cede as they desire. The cult though is supporting Napoleon and the Grandians in the war, and they are beginnning to prepare a huge force of mostly untrained civilians and cult followers to invade the Macedonian Empire from the south.

BGG: Oh dear. I was hoping this war wouldn't escalate whilst I was in presidency. Do you suggest we intervene in any way?

Royal informer: We could support the Macedonian Empire with supplying weapons, or in alignment to the Pentente agreement we could support them militarily and send our army over there.

BGG: That's a tough decision. I guess I'll think about it and come out with an announcement in the next few days.

Royal informer: Also, many of the Infinity League members (the Vampires, Pacifists, and Sanctusians) and have voiced their support for the Grande Empire, and are internationally recognising the Yemeni cult as a nation independent of the Veggie Caliphate.

BGG: Well, I'll voice my support for the Macedon's and I'll remain neutral on the status of the Yemeni cult for now, but maybe later I'll pick a side. Have any Pentente members done anything?

Royal informer: Well the Imperial Union are afraid of the Imperium Sanctus and the Yemeni cult if they do anything because they are very close and border each other. The Blaze Empire has however sided with Macedon.

BGG: What about any of the Alliance members?

Royal informer: At the moment Chilefornia and the GIE are neutral but they obviously support the Veggie's and therefore are leaning towards picking Macedon's side.

BGG: And any neautral empires?

Royal informer: None of them have picked a side yet, however the GrandOldMen and Empires have supported the Grandians. Sawiwi has kinda supported the Macedon's. The Great Southerners have told everyone to stop the war, the Med-ats and Palapyans haven't said anything. As for EMG, they're staying out of it, and they're still a little upset with Macedon over their unauthorized Amazon expedition, but they also don't like GrandOldLand that much. Also dovewing/tigerheart/tancred/etc. has teamed up with the Sultan Viniga and is spreading havoc across Chilefornia and in Belarus in Macedon.

BGG: Oh well, I guess I'll stay technically neautral but support the Macedons.

Royal informer: Yes sir.

Breaking News, Worldwide - 29 January 2022

Reporter: The war has escolated, making many leaders nervous and making tough decisions, and many war-mongers eager for a worldwide conflict.

Blaze is secretly building a top-secret secret ice base in Antarctica so if needs be, His Imperial Awesomeness and co can escape there to survive. He will get the money to do so from opening a chain of ice-cream stores all over the world.

Thank you for your explanation. Do you plan on having something like a movie that you'll start up again after this ends or are you planning to keep this one going?

If you're planning on a sequel, I'd like to lead an empire there.

If not, I noticed two big sections of Antarctica remain unclaimed: latitudes 150° W - 20° W and 160° E - 44°38' E. Would it possible to claim one of them for a neutral empire?

Aug 2, 2022
I'm not sure I understand what you meant about the movie.

But I do plan on continuing this series, and as this episode outlined, a world war is on the horizon.

Unfortunately I am not adding any more empires, however you can enter the story as a character. Perhaps you could ask to be part of another empire, or something else. I'll add you in if you can think of where you'd like to be added.

Level 58

I also had no idea there was an unclaimed part of Antarctica. Perhaps you could actually claim that as part of your empire, although I'm not sure how much benefit a large sheet of ice would be. You can do whatever you want really (within reason) to strengthen your economy and military etc.

If you haven't read the previous chapters of the series, I do recommend them (it is a lot to read though), because then you can see how things work a little easier.

I hope this explanation helps :)

Thank you! Yes, I've read through the entire series.

Sorry, my movie analogy was not very good. I meant TV show. Are you planning on doing 'seasons', or sticking with this universe for the foreseeable future?

I figured empires couldn't be added, but I thought it was worth a try. I'll think about where I can fit in the plot, thank you. It's hard since I don't want to hijack someone else's empire. None of these are run by NPCs at the moment, by any chance?

Yeah, I noticed Antarctica seemed pretty neglected. I would claim that but I obviously can't without an empire. I expect it would be a decent fallback base if all else was lost. Not really all that helpful, but better than nothing.

Thank you for your explanations and time.

No problem. Unfortunately the only NPC run 'empire' which is really only a rebellion is the Yemeni Autonomous Region in the Veggie Caliphate. I don't think you'll want to be part of them though because Viniga is kind of a villain.

Maybe you could ask around, and find an emperor who would be willing to 'employ' you. If you can't find anyone, then you could hold a role as maybe the general in my own army?

As for the seasons: I originally planned on doing that for some reason, but I've kinda abandoned that plan now. So I don't really have any plans, I basically just write when I feel motivated and I don't have a major structural plan for what is coming, and it is always subject to change anyway...

Maybe the QuizzerBros' might give you a role in their empire? It might be worth asking them.

I sent you a role idea via a group. Would you mind letting me know what you think in that group?
