Oyessia 10 years ago

After some heated time between the Oswarian Empire and the Bjergavjern, both states send ambassadors to attend a diplomatic meeting in the city of Floross in the nation of Flovati to discuss a way to ease tensions and negotiate a possible trade agreement but underneath the press eyes, things always are negotiated in secret.
Conference room of Floross

Foreign Minister Nicklas Sparre of Clan Bierbrau was sent by Volksfuhrer Ivar Hermann to attend the meeting with the diplomat of the Oswarian Empire. Gruff and grim, Nicklas wore simple traditional clothing of his clan while bringing several barrels of beer and ale to the city. Hermann wanted the Oswarians to experience dwarven hospitality and nothing else was welcoming than a mug of Bierbrau alcohol.

The dwarf whose beard reaches his knees almost swelled with pride knowing that his clan is being properly represented in this meeting. Every since the Volksfacistikefurband av Bjergavjern took power in the capital, Holkungenssete, they have implemented a series of centralization and reorganization of dwarven economics and industry in their so called 5 year plan. Thankfully, Clan Bierbrau still retained their speciality as brewers when the party acknowledges their exceptional skill and technique in Bjergavjern.

Foreign Minister Alessandra Reis Boaventura was sent to represent the Empire of Oswaria in the meeting with Bjergavjern she brought clothing symbolizing a noble of the empire together with a series of spicy foods from the Empire tendency of usage of spices in food in their traditions Alessandra in her clothing also brought certain cloth decoration symbolizing her Esken descent from the southern regions of the Empire.

She brought with herself a translator and a few security guards for her mission, and according to the Emperor, also to find a good position for the empire in the negotiations. The emperor himself would come but due to problems at home sent Alessandra in his place to negotiate with the Volkists.

Here, the relations of the two great powers of Oyessia hang in the balance between these two people as Flovati, unwittingly, sealed its fate alongside them. On the surface, this was a trade treaty to smooth relations and to forgive past grievances of one another. Oswaria in the past used to be a disunited band of princes, electors, and petty counts. Unification was the goal of many but none have were as ambitious nor have butted heads with the dwarves of Bjergavjern as much as the Rosario Royal family. They had the misfortune of being late when it comes to securing ties with the dwarves as their rivals beat them to it first. Rosario’s Unification wars was the sore thumb even since the family’s rivals called upon the aid of the dwarves when war was declared against them. Honor was honor in a defensive alliance and Rosario attacked first. In the end, Rosario’s rivals become too complacent and refused a call to arms in a defensive war against Fenice when the elves invaded the island east of the mountains. The rest is history and Oswaria was formed angry and irritated knowing very well its birth and future was severely delayed by Bjergavjern.
On paper, this treaty, what would soon be known as the Floross Agreement, would put an end to the cold relations between the two regional powers. Bjergavjern has no qualms with Oswaria existence and in fact believed it to be punishment to the petty dukes and counts that dishonored the dwarves. Oswaria, on the other hand, was pushing for advancement of their own economic interest, especially the Irridae Strait. The high tariffs of Oswarian merchant shipping was an insult to their national pride and this treaty would hopefully put forward a more equitable solution.

But beneath the flowers lie thornes and the fate of Flovati has been sealed between these two nations. A fate in which cannot be undone.

With some journalist taking photos of both ministers been finished the guards begun to close the door of the room to leave the diplomats to talk.
Alessandra pulled the chair to sit and chat.
“Sometimes these flashes make my eyes hurt. What about you?”

“Me?” Sparre squinted his eyes in response. “I’ve gotten used to it.” He then took another swig on his clan’s ale before resting the cup on the table.

“Good to know” Alessandra blinked twice. “Well they say the dwarves value their clan rather then their leader sometimes” she drinks a little from the beer in her cup.

“Nonsense.” He brushed off the insult, as if he was used to this gross exaggeration, “Our clans are our homes and our homes are guided by the leadership of our High King, now Volksfuhrer. We swore an oath and it is great dishonor to our ancestors if we break it.”

“For our people our dishonor was letting foreign powers to influence our old states until the unification happened.” She leaned forward in the table. “Our states might had a rough start, maybe we can find a ground where our leaders might be pleased.”

An eyebrow was raised on Sparre’s face. “Ah, that's why I'm here.”

She leaned backwards and said “It seems like we can start talking about business then.” She raises her eyebrow.

“Please continue.” He waved his hand. “I'm listening.”

She approached slightly into the table and said “As you know the Empire of Oswaria has been facing the problem of the high tariffing of the Irridare strait...” She makes a small pause and waved her hand slightly as she chats “If your state can lower some of this tarifs we can establish trade links between our nations most notably the natural resources of your nation call the attention of our hungry industrial base economy.”

“What is Oswaria willing to pay in return for lower tariffs and access to our minerals and ores?” he asked.

She smiled a little “The funny part is that you are literally sitting on top what we can offer to your country.”

Unamused, Sparre took another drink of his beer. “It's gonna take more than that to convince the Volksfuhrer that this will be a fair treaty.”

Alessandra nodded as the dwarf spoke, she then said. “Understandable well, then what your Volksfuhrer seeks to this be a fair treaty?.”

Nation Name: Empire of Oswaria

Type of Government: The government of Oswaria worked in a form of an elective monarchy, where the ruling dynasty would have one of their members elected into the position of the emperor. Until recently, the position of Chancellor was also one that was voted on, however, due to the reforms of the previous Empress, the Chancellor is appointed by the current ruling monarch. Both these positions are held for life.

While the nation claims to have a parliament, this branch of government is more for show, with many of the decision being made by the Imperial Council instead. After the Ascension of Emperor Evandro and the increase of Imperial power, many expect a new constitution to be finally sent after the ashes have settled.

Oswaria had major monopolies, after the Constitutional amendment 32 was created and enforced by the Emperor, the industries was then divided into a series of oligopolies. The biggest industries are Refining, machinery, and weaponry. The food and electronics industries has gained attention from both government and private sector. To a certain degree, Oswaria is self-sufficient in iron allowing robust steel industry.

After the volcano eruption, the farming industry collapsed leading to nationwide starvation and crisis. This led to the adoption of a rationing system, however, the damage was done and millions starved to death. The Empire established martial law to hold the nation together until the agricultural fields finally began to recover.

In the past, mana crystals had to be meticulously created by skilled artisans. However, in recent years, lead magicians and engineers were able to create a method that allowed for the mass production of these crystals.

Armored divisions of the Empire has many different types using mechs, spider mechs and tanks having different kinds of armored for different situations.

The Titan is the heavy armored infantry containing a flamethrower and 2 heavy machine guns that can penetrate armored divisions due to slow its put together with infantry divisions. These units are often made up of “penal” battalions due to their risky design.

Magic Prevalence/Usage: Magic although not common but not rare is defined for being hereditary with certain families even practicing incest to protect the magical lineage inside the family their powers range from abilities of healing and even conjuring elemental powers another kind of magic force that has been discovered over the years is Mana crystals that are synthetically made used mostly to certain extent some spells and even flying.
The source of magic have yet to be discovered but thanks to scientific endeavors were able to create a small quantity of magic without someone of magical descent indicating that magic is not restricted to blood.
The schools of magic teached are the schools of order, chaos and balance this schools are teached because the way they tap the arcane power and most of the time to discover what kind of magic you can tap.
The abilities Chaos allows the usage of more extreme kinds of magics such as Elemental and Illusion spells might include the ability to launch fire from your hands to literally creating a fog or a fake Demon other examples is literally calling upon a thunderstorm although not useful when lightning has a tendency to hit what is the more conductive for some reason the abilities of chaos does not allow the usage of frost powers.

The abilities of Balance are rather rare on to be inherited or simply be born with once you discover you have the ability to use magic this power is rather mysterious but like the gods it appears to be able to use both sides of the magical spectre but what makes it more intriguing is the fact that the user of this kind of magic has the ability of restoration or simply healing this kind of spell is barely understood except the fact that the use can heals itself and others.
The fourth ability is considered illegal due to its way to achieve they are some events were a individual can tap into the power but not use not even the 3 spectres but rather use the extremes of order and chaos the last good example was the vampire uprising of almost 600 years ago where magicians that could control the human body by literally absorbing life force although this kind of magic is more extreme of rare it is undocumented of what it can do and the vampire uprising and what such magic can do was lost to history mostly because of document burning of the region what such power can do is mostly considered unknown.

The Age of swords was the time when the empire was under a newly religious fervor and also expansionist growing to the greatest size it has been from the western sides to many zones in the mountains this time, unfortunately, didn't lasted forever as in question of a few centuries the recently conquered territories had gained independence or were conquered by other powers in that time the empire begun to decentralize.
The Second renaissance was the time when a cultural and nationalist boom in the Empire in this moment the first reforms that initiated the centralization of power to the throne once again this moment that lasted almost 120 years allowed the end of the Imperial confederation and the reformation of the Empire the reformation was established with the House of Rosário to assume command of the nation and establishing a tanistry succession system in a example of the ancient ways.
