Thread: [Forum Game] - World in Revolution: 1861

    We will still wait for the final peace settlement of the American War to issue a formal recognition of the Confederate States of America, even though it seems that their independence is now secured.

    We would also like to commend the Ottoman Empire for their quick paced march into economic greatness.

    OOC: As a remark on the Ottomans, during this time the city was officially known as "Konstantiniyye". I can't see Ottoman officials calling it by its common name (which is a stupid name, if you know its definition, but that is a discussion for another time). (Also, common as in: the name used by the people, the common folk, the plebeians, the peasants, etcetera).

    OOC: Interesting, didn't know that. Is it still called that way by people, or is it Istanbul now ?

    OOC: I did state that the common name was "Istanbul". It is very old and...IMO a stupid name. It comes from the Medieval Greek phrase "eis tín Pólin". It means "to the city", or "in the city". The reason for the phrase is pretty obvious, seeing as Constantinople was The City (and in some respects, I suppose still is). The name "Istanbul" originates somewhere in the 10th century, but it was never an official name until 1930.

    So yeah, it does well for a name used by the common folk, but as an official name for a city? No.
    One can see this in a lot of toponyms in Anatolia. For example, "Iznik" comes from the phrase, "eis Nicaea", which means "to Nicaea". It drives me mad!

    I am not entirely certain what the Ottomans used as official names for the less prominent cities, but Constantinople was Constantinople (in turkish: Konstantiniyye).

    OOC: Not like anything came to those orders anyways so don't be blaming Brazil and Guatemala for anything.
    For all you guys know, I could have sent smugglers to the Dutch and British Guyana, as well as Spanish, Danish, and German caribbean colonies and Mexico.

    Will be sending revised orders Frymonmon, once this peace treaty is all finished.

    OOC: We aren't using their exact currency, just backing ours with it. Our dollar would still be different from the Franc, and still be worth less than the Franc.

    His Majesty's Government has been far too kind to the South Afrikan menace in the past. We allowed them to get away with a full invasion, as well as numerous insults to ourself.

    This latest insult, against His Majesty, His Majesty's Government and the people of the Cape shall not stand. We shall pursue this war to the end, when the safety of the Cape will be secured from their menace.

    The Fall of Bavaria


    As the haze lifted above Nuremberg on July 4th, 1863, the new German General Helmuth von Moltke arrived by train to command the German Armies. Upon a podium, he overlooked his German Soldiers, recently boosted by the 1st Bavarian Armee Korps, a group of loyal Bavarians who signed up after the Kaiser gave a speech, vowing to protect the Catholics inside Germany.

    On the same train that brought the new General to the German Army, a brand new shipment of very mobile, and very strong, Krupp Guns arrived. Gathering his forces together and training with the new, deadly weapons, the German Army started their march towards Munich on July 26th, 1863. Along the way, many Bavarian partisans constantly attacked the army in small groups, to the point where they started to take a serious toll on the Army. However, once they approached Munich, the minor fighting stopped as both sides began to gear up for the might Siege of Munich. [-2,000 Regulars from the German Empire.]

    The fighting started when the left flank of the German Army, the IX. KaiserKorps, started to march towards the outermost defenses around Munich, where the Germans easily overwhelmed the Bavarian defenders, chasing them back, until they were able to reel around at an unfinished railroad cut, and even pushed the Germans back. While occupying this location, a group of Bavarian Cavalry rode to the North and intercepted the German Telegraph lines, sending a message to Berlin that said Jesus Christ himself was seen on the battlefield, striking down German heathens. This news startled the operator in Berlin, where the message was immediately sent to the Kaiser, who started the messenger straight in his face and replied "If he is, aim all of Krupp's guns at him and send him back to Jerusalem."

    Needless to say, the message wasn't very effective, and the Bavarians were finally beaten back to the City, where the main assault was poised to start at any moment.


    1. Bavarian Forces before the main assault.


    The main assault was carried out a little after noontime came and passed. The Bells of the Munich Cathedral chimed ominously in tune with the Krupp Guns, which constantly pounded away at the city. The German Center marched, at full speed, towards the city's walls, where they were meet with a weak resistance of gunfire and even a few stones were thrown. It did seem, however, that all of Munich's citizens were coming out to support in the defense of the city. Men, Women, and Children fought, dieing side by side. They all believed in a cause, and followed their King gallantly.

    However, the relentless stream of German Troops simply was too much for the city to handle. The line began to waver, and street after street was capitulated to the Germans. However, even as this was happening, the Bavarian national anthem rose up from the citizens, every time a body dropped, they all did so willingly.

    As the final assault waves hit the city, they pushed deeper and deeper, as more and more Bavarians fell to the German Guns. The Krupp Artillery was very effective at tearing down priceless and ancient structures, all of which held some defenders that were routed out. The final moral killer for the Bavarians was when a German sharpshooter took careful aim, fired, and shot the King of the German Federation straight through the heart, killing him instantly. Most resistance at this point was crushed, as the Germans slowly entered the city once and for all, approaching the city hall. As the Bavarian Flag was lowed over Munich, it was wrapped around the body of the dead King, now a martyr for the cause of Federation and Liberalism, and finally, after the long war of attrition, the German Empire proclaimed its complete dominance over Bavaria.

    [-7,000 Regulars from the German Empire. Bavaria/German Federation annexed by Germany. +190 Base to the German Empire. -1 Stability from the German Empire.]

    The Qing Emperor is pleased that another pointless war in Europe is over and that this will enable peace to return to Europe sooner. He's knows well that Bavaria never stood a chance against the Vastly Superior forces of the Germany and while this conviction wavered slightly when the French, Austrians and Russians Intervened on the side of Bavaria the end was never in doubt. Hopefully after this the wars in Italy and Austria can end.

    The United Kingdoms of Sweden and Norway are happy that another bloody chapter of this great war has closed with the defeat of Bavaria, and hopefully with it an end to the rash and disruptive practices espoused by the Bavarian government. We only hope that war in Europe will end soon.

    The Kingdom of Spain is pleased by the end of hostilities in Bavaria, but condemns the use of an assassin to kill the King of Baviera. We remind the Kaiser that Germany condemned the murder of Queen Victoria, and thus should act in a way that prevents such barbaric acts from taking place.
