    Yeah, these one-liners are seriously annoying. And all propaganda aside, try to atleast act a bit like 19th century aristocrats. The Russian royal family and the Prussian royal family are somewhat related, if not as much as they'd be 50 years later. Insulting each others families makes this appear like some 12 year-old "who knows the worse words" contest, rather than a RPG. :P

    Also, there's no Kaiser in Prussia. Just a König.

    Finally: Anyone here got msn?

    A New Age!


    People of China! Look at the man who claims to be your Emperor, the Imposter in Beijing! Look at his actions, hear his words! Another loss of face for China, caused by his rash and headless speeches, earning him nothing but mockery. Another insult to the Dragon Throne, for a true Emperor does not reverse his decisions on a whim, for news from the other side of the world!

    People of China! See how he rewards his loyal servants - they're replaced within weeks after their appointment to highest offices, without a chance to prove their worth! He is not worthy of the throne he sits, for a true Emperor is just and firm; not arbitrary and faithless, like the man who slaughtered thousands of his loyal servants, because of mere rumours!

    People of China! The Heavenly Kingdom is here to restore China's lost glory! The Heavenly Army is here to liberate you from opression and famine, murder and lawlessness! Swear fealty to Hong Xiuquan! Rise up against the unworthy Qing and begin a new life, a New Age! A New Age of peace! An Age of prosperity! Of progress and glory, of justice and freedom! Rise up, and follow Hong Xiuquan into this New Age! Rise up!


    For the People! For China! For a New Age!

    OOC: Just a heads up, my orders might be a little irregular. I've got a lot deadlines coming up and I'll try to post when I can. If I don't get a chance to send orders I would like the GM to do so for me. Hopefully I'll get all this out of the way soon.

    The Qing Emperor ruler of all under heaven again calls on his people to ignore the lies and slander coming from Taiping lands. The claims he changed his mind on a whim to recognise the CSA are untrue it was a carefully calculated political manoeuvre the Confederates had proven themselves more than capable of taking whatever the Union threw at it and winning these military victories are the reason the choice was made and in fact no position was no changed as previously no position was taken on the CSA. The replaced men had many tries over the past few years or so to stop the spread of the Taiping revolt and have failed to deliver and have been replaced in command of the most important armies by newer men who haven't proved themselves yet. The Taiping leadership continually try to throw dirt on the reputation of the Emperor and it is true many officials where killed none where killed on basis of rumours alone. Significant amounts of evidence against the killed was found and it is known that several orders where misinterpreted by the executioners meaning several innocents were killed, said executioners have since been executed themselves. As another change in upper leadership Sengge Rinchen will now become commander of the Army of Mongolia after he proved himself against the Taiping rebels recently.

    EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND
    August 8th, 1862


    News has reached the Times here in Edinburgh that the rouge Boer State, the South African Republic, has overstepped it's boundaries once again. First, it has sent its army into Her Majesty's most excellent Cape Colony, and now the so called "State President", Marthinus Wessel Pretorius, has announced that the Oranje Free State, along with every other Boer State, has decided to enter into his collective Matrimony. This new "Republic" now bolsters more land and more civilized citizens than our Glorious Cape Colony. If our ignorant Government ever gets rid of these rebels, we here at the Time suggest moving in to crush these upstart Dutchmen.

    The Kingdom of Prussia condemns the boer attack on the cape colony. We hope that our British allies can drive the upstarts from their colony.

    OOC : I don't think they have attacked the Cape colony, only unified with the other boer states?

    The European Civil War, Eastern Theatre, August-September 1862

    It is no small surprise that with the announcement of the creation of the new Polish state, that the Prussian government took immediate action. Rearming the IV. Armee with an additional 20,000 regulars, numbering a total 60,000 regulars and 20,000 conscripts, and the V. Armee with an additional 10,000 regulars, numbering a total 50,000 regulars and 10,000 conscripts, the Prussian military staff began operations to dislodge the new Polish forces from the area of Posen. Rising from their trenches, and marching forward 15 miles, the Prussian army caught the rag-tag Polish regiments by surprise. Using the fast forests to their tactical advantage, the Prussian forces were able to do a sizable amount of damage with the aid of artillery, leveling several villages and one small town in the process of routing the Polish forces. When the battle was well and done, an approximate 10,000 casualties were suffered by the combined Prussian forces, with an unknown amount of Polish military and civilian deaths. [-1000 regulars and -4000 conscripts from the IV. Armee, -1000 regulars and -4000 conscripts from the V. Armee for Prussia.]


    (Prussian forces advancing on Polish regiments.)

    The carnage did not end there. The Russian Staff had granted an additional 40,000 regulars to aid the 35,000 regulars assaulting the city of Allenstein. However, the Prussians had other plans in mind. Using there two battle hardened Armee's to reinforce the garrison at Allenstein, the Prussian forces launched a counterattack. Numbering a total of 130,000 soldiers, the newly arrived Prussian forces moved to the sides of the city, in an attempt to flank the Russian force of 75,000. Charging cavalry into the newly arrived infantry regiments, the Prussian force soon overwhelmed the recently recruited Russian forces, forcing them to pull back, with an estimated 12,000 casualties. The Prussian armee's are estimated to have sustained 4,000 casualties themselves. The Russians quickly re-organized themselves however, and were able to set up defensive lines a bit forward of the Neman River.[-4000 regulars and -8000 conscripts for Russia. -4000 conscripts for Prussia.]



    (Prussian cavalry assaulting a Russian flank.)

    The Prussians, instead of moving to attack the Russian force once more, proceeded south, in an attempt to capture the self-proclaimed Capital of the new Polish State. Facing minimal resistance, the Prussians paved a path towards Warsaw, coming to the outskirts of the city. Upon arrival, the Prussian force sent a message to the Polish government holed up in the city; "Fight for us, and you shall have your own state out of Russian and Austrian lands." Needless to say, the Poles were hardly convinced, and refused to give up their centuries old claims on Prussian land. The Prussian force, numbering 126,000 men, proceeded to bomb the city with a hailstorm of artillery fire. Upon sending regular infantry and cavalry to advance into the suburbs, and then the city proper, the Prussian command was in for a rude awakening. Instead of a desolated, destroyed, and morale crushed rag-tag group of Polish peasants wielding rifles, they encountered Polish guerrillas, fighting from every house, ally way, and street that was visible in the suburbs themselves. The Poles resistance to the advancing Prussian force was so fierce, that Prussian soldiers would refer to them as the "Satan spawns." After several attempts to secure a foothold in the suburbs, Prussian command ordered the assault be called off, and the forces set up a siege on the outskirts. What seemed like an easy attempt to knock a pesky nuisance out of the war, turned into a living hell for every Prussian soldier to step foot inside the city. Needless to say, the Prussian public was less then satisfied with losing to a people so avidly noted as inferior in almost every central European society. Prussian nationalists began to become disillusioned with the current government, even that of Otto Von Bismark himself. The public, forced to deal with a two-front war on their home soil, and constant Bavarian propaganda, was less then happy. [-4000 regulars, -4000 conscripts, -1 stability for Prussia.]

    Contrary to the claims of the British paper The Times, we are no rebels. In fact, the existence of the South African Republic and the now defunct Oranje Free State was officially recognized by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland during the Sand River Convention of 1852. We are, by the British government's own admission, a free and independent state, subject not in the least to British law in any way whatsoever. Therefore, any action undertaken by any Boer state that does not immediately concern the United Kingdom is completely and entirely our own affair, and therefore should not be interfered with.

    Furthermore, I would like to assert that I am by no means a Dutchman. I am a Boer, or an Afrikaner, if you prefer that term. The Netherlands has long since rejected me and my people, and we have rejected it. We have left the old world behind, never again to concern ourselves with it. South Africa is our home now, and every last Boer will spill their blood to defend it from any and all threats.

    Finally, it is the right of every free, civilized people to organize themselves as they see fit. The Boers have chosen to stand united under the banner of the South African Republic, and so they will, unless foreign intervention is going to tear us apart and deprive us of our God-given rights.
