The Commonwealth Federation TCF Regional Message Board
With knowledge of the Colombians and their location the Yupanqui prepares for an attack, until he notices the jungle has been set alight. While his army is safe from the fire he is sadden by the actions of the Colombians to destroy the land.
"Officers, hear my orders, maintain formations and protect the flanks. Send the bowmen to destroy any Colombians hiding in the jungle, take any who surrender."
"Runner, carry my message to Roca, request reinforcement to Tulua, be wary of any Colombian solders. make your arrival discreet, no prisoners."
Yupanqui thinks to himself.
"Colombian you will die along with this forest"
The Birjand Mosque Massacre courses mass outcry in the city, it was unwise for the Sunni invaders to shed blood so harshly in a place of worship. Although no formal resistance occurs, every morning a few Afghan men are found dead in Birjand's various alleyways. There is great resentment around the local populace, although for now locals are too fearful to spread word of the massacre to the neighbouring villages, although it won't be long until they muster some courage.
The Persian force sent to relieve Birjand will arrive in a couple of days, they intend to besiege the city.
Sistan and Baluchestan
Similar to Zahedan, the Balochis of Pahrah are quick to join forces with the invaders. The Afghan recruitment campaign proves successful with a grand total of 500 additional fighting men joining the Afghan ranks.
Great Council of 1823
Napoleon-Louis Bonaparte has ascended to the Dutch throne as Louis I Bonaparte at a large ceremony at Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam following his election at a Great Council held in the Royal Palace the day prior. Bonaparte successfully defeated his opponent Duke William of Nassau-Weilberg by a vote of 78%, largely gathering the support of Belgian, German and French nobles, as well as many Dutchmen.
Louis has been betrothed to King William's last remaining issue, Princess Marianne, who he is expected to marry upon her ascension to the age of majority, 16 in the Netherlands.

Chapter 18 King Svend I of Norway
King Svend was born in the middle of February when Oslo was caught in a snowstorm probably during one of the coldest winters we have known in Oslo, he was the second son of his father, King Kristian of Norway . He had 3 sisters and 2 brothers one of them was destined to be the king of Norway while Svend had to remain remained hidden in his shadow. His brother was called Erik, and one day had to become Erik 4 King of Norway, his second brother was named Harald. The three had the same education with the best teacher possible, Svend always took his education seriously and it is said that he would have spent the first 16 years of his life in the library. Erik was a man of the court, he spent his time with the nobles charming them one after the other (especially the young ladies) he had the art and the way to obtain what he wanted especially from his father who cherished him more than everyone else, Harald had a hard time studying and rarely held in place except for any military lesson. we had three very different brothers, an arrogant, spoiled future king who shone in the nobility and despised the common people, a bookworm who despised the nobility and was charmed by manners and worried of the common people he discovered through his books and another that would only swore by the army.
The time of the Napeleonian war came, King Kristian was a paranoid king who feared more than anything an invasion of Napoleon, despite the assertion of Norwegian neutrality and the difficulty of invading it, he then initiated massive and costly military reform increasing largely the Norwegian fleet and the defense of its military ports, but above all he made a reshuffle of military training, he made them very rough, the soldiers spent their day training in the high mountains to carry heavy loads, and spent hours training. The king decided to send Svend and harald armed him, he despised his two other sons whom he considered as rivals of his adored eldest son, Harald did not protest unlike Svend who wanted to continue studying, but his father forced him through the daily soldier training and Svend forced himself to study on the little bit of free time and sleep he had left. At that time Svend's growth went very quickly, he became extremely tall, at the end of his growth he was 1.92 meters much taller than his brothers, due to his size and his build which he had acquired because of the a harsh Norwegian army, he was nicknamed the giant.
The king was getting old and we were preparing his succession, we had married Erik to a noble coming from a Germanic state, however Erik despite the marriage continued to have affair with other woman, wich caused him certain problems, even if he continued to be appreciated by the vast majority of the nobles and the norwegian court, some voices were raised for the crown to return to Svend, his father could not however let go of this, his paranoia made him think that svend would try of stealing the throne of his adored son, he then decided to have him assassinated, King Kristian was a cruel king who only cared for himself and his son, pouring out his hatred and anger on his other sons and on his woman, who was trying somehow to hide her bruises behind a long dress. The assassination attempt never worked, however, after the first attempt which left him with a scar on his forehead, he became terribly suspicious not trusting anyone anymore, this caution saved his life but will have terrible consequences on his life and his reign. So from his 17 years to 20 years old he juggled between the army (which he continued to do to continue to receive his father's pension) the library and long period where he slipped into the Norwegian mountains to relax and sometimes meet the common people (incognito).
However his brother died suddenly after a fulguring pneumonia, and his father fell ill which made the court and his adviser feared for his future death, so Svend became the inheritance to the chagrin of his father who hated him all the more accusing him of being responsible for after Erik's death, Svend spent the last 2 years of his father's life preparing to become king of Norway. At the beginning, he was not enchanted by these new functions, he was a discreet man who did not like the infinite royal protocol and especially the false pretenses of the court, however over time he ended up saying to himself that this position could allow him to truly change norway, the only person for him who would have exercised a power function in the right way was his grandmother Edwige 1st of Norway, yes he would be the king of the people and not of this nobility he despised so much.
King Kristian died leaving the place to his son who took his rightful place on the throne, he took power while the situation in Scandinavia was very complex since Denmark had invaded southern sweden and war threatened the whole region. one of these first actions was the colonization of the Kola Peninsula, Svalbard as well as the annexation of a region now called the Sapmi. We could say from his early reign that he had been rather remarkable, the economic reform, the construction of mines in the new region and especially a major reform of modernization of the fishing industry allowed a significant economic growth, which like the king wished it was invested in the improvement of the living conditions of the citizens but also in an enlargement of the naval power, there was also the beginning of the immense site of the renovation of Oslo. We could say of the King of Norway that he was an undeniably good man, very attached to his close family, his brother, his sisters and his mother overprotecting them a little sometimes, he was also a frugal man who had greatly reduced the budget granted to the royal family, his only major expense being in the books and the royal orchestra which he had greatly enlarged being a great lover of music. The king was obsessed with the image he sent to the people whom he wanted to show that he was the strong man of norway and the protector of the people while he wanted to appear as an enlightened king in the eyes of the intellectuals of his world that he met frequently met very frequently for several projects. We could say that his dark side was mostly his mistrust, was a king who tried to delegate as little work as possible to his advisers, so he was one of the kings who spent the most time working than I met, however he was also often tired because of that, I don't know how long he will last like that, I was one of the few advisers he seemed to trust. We can also say that he was a relatively poor diplomat at first, his handling of the Danish king's invitation was poor as it led to tension with Denmark. However the real determining trait which will determine all its reign was the alliance with ........ and the war with ....... * to be continued *
the Norwegian expedition finally arrived on the island after several weeks of navigation the king was the first to set foot on the largest island of the archipelago in the gray bay, it was incredibly cold and thousands of birds were flying freely in the sky, this is how the king found the name of the archipelago, Fulgland, the land of birds, the king and the team of researcher / architect / worker ... stayed 14 days on the archipelago where they mapped the island (of course they could not mapped everything given the size of the archipelago) they gave names to the islands, the majority of the names from the royal family and noblemen that King Svend respected and of course the name of the members of the expedition and of the fishermen who had seen the island first, the geologist examined the composition of the soil and was positive on the presence of coal, the soil was also covered with basalt, a stone used in construction and also for status. the team had also built some barracks to prepare the arrival of the future colonist who would open a coal mine, the most important colony and which was to be the major port and the administrative center of the islands would be called Nagurskoye and would be founded in the gray bay on the largest known island of the archipelago,they began to install barracks for future settlers. several flags were placed on different islands to assert Norwegian domination. After its 14th day the team returned to Kirkenes while the king returned to Oslo where he was preparing to welcome the new king of the Netherlands Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte.
Sistan and Baluchestan
The forces that invaded Sistan and Baluchestan have come to the conclusion that most of the province would be under their influence or their control by now. The force that invaded Sistan and Baluchestan has split into two. One half stays in cities within Sistan and Baluchestan, guarding the occupied cities, pulling out invasions of nearby villages and towns, and holding off any Persian forces. The goal is to get Sistan and Baluchestan's governance to surrender to the Afghan invaders or to get them to join Afghanistan. The other half, is headed for Birjand to relieve the forces struggling there.
Birjand's Holy Fury
The invaders, being largely resented by the locals, and struggling heavily, have to wait out. The commander of the army has given the command to slay any local who tries to lay hands on them or disrupts them. Meanwhile, from Sistan and Baluchestan, reinforcements come in from the South, the reinforcements invading towns, villages and cities on their way to Birjand, same for ones coming from Herat. The Birjand Army must await these reinforcements before they can get back on their feet and go back to invading the rest of the province. (You decide if any of the reinforcements come. The Sistan and Baluchestan would likely not arrive but the Herat ones have been at it for a few now.)
Sistan and Baluchestan
The largely Shia dominated government of Sitan and Baluchestan agrees to formally surrender to Afghanistan, with the territories joining the Emirate of Afghanistan.
The Herat forces arrive in Birjand just in time, with the number of attacks on soldiers declining following their arrival as locals began to fear the additional soldiers.
A few days after the arrival of the Herat forces, the Persian army begins their siege of Birjand, hoping to starve out a majority of their fighting force, hoping to make them yield.
Much of the short history of the Philippine Commonwealth had been concerned with consolidating its hold and the fragile peace that entails in the archipelago. The shadows that loomed from the aftermath of the war of independence against the Spanish have left the many kingdoms and states of the islands still recoiling from despite the best efforts of both the local and national government to recover its assets. The actions made by parliament, in particular, had always been under scrutiny. But it must be said that without the contributions from the national government, the Philippine islands would be regress into nothing more than a collection of petty island kingdoms and ethnicities that vie each other with immense abhorrence, just as that from the pre-colonial era. While such sentiments still exists, the existence of the Philippine Commonwealth serves as an effective mediator for feuding regions. In other parts of the archipelago, cooperation and even coexistence are being exercised, and thanks to some agrarian land reforms made by parliament, former rebels are starting to return to their home and begin to develop their lands.
Making the Philippines Stand Out!
The Philippines is, and will probably remain as an agrarian nation, at least in to the most foreseeable future. The Land Redevelopment Law that was passed into parliament encouraged farmers to return to their homes and work the lands without them paying any taxes for eight months, giving them ample time to create surplus. However, there exists a problem.
While the country's manpower is large for its size, the Philippines is yet to be seen as a competitive nation in the emerging global market. Products that were once coveted by foreign nations like coffee, hemp, spices, sugar, and cotton among others among others are also sold at other countries at more reasonable bargains. While the Philippines was able to achieve some degree of economic triumphs by signing alliances with nations like Hawaii, the Dutch, and its Malayan brothers, it still yet to be seen as an independent and significant economic entity. The disintegration of the Manila Galleons in 1790, in the aftermath of the Independence War have greatly diminished Manila's impact in the global economy, and representatives of Parliament and that of the Mactan court have expressed these concerns to the executive council.
The Manila Galleons!
Kawit City, Cavite.
In a hooked-shaped peninsula located in the southern regions of the Manila Bay, there lies a great structure of dilapidated stone and wood floating upon the surface of the great bay. Gentle waves larp around the seemingly ancient ruins, though it has to be said that it had not been even half a century since this building was abandoned. Nevertheless, this once great Arsenal was the site where most of the Philippine Galleons are constructed, are broken and in a state of disrepair. Before the Spanish left the Philippines, they ensured that they either carried much of their innovations back to the Iberian peninsula, or destroy it if they are unable to do the former. Burn it instead of letting the uncivilized 'indios' wield it, said the last of the Gobernador-Heneral before he threw the torch that would burn the Astillero de Rivera (Rivera Shipyards).
During a regular Parliamentary Regional Analysis in Mactan, representatives from the Tagalog Federation have expressed their desire to repair the damaged Astillero de Rivera, and have given their interest of sharing their knowledge of shipbuilding to other states that may be interested to know their secrets. The executive council, upon hearing of their small interests, encouraged the Tagalogs to indeed repair the abandoned Arsenal.
While most people saw this as nothing more than a nation that is trying to reestablish its former pride, cynics and conspiracy theorists believe that they knew better. What was once a government that is concerned with internal politics drastically changed itself to connect with foreign countries, both old and new, and now it is reconstructing its naval bases. These cynics believe that the Philippine Commonwealth is inspired not by a desire of profit and prosperity, but of fear and survival. Rumors from lands beyond the seas have told that the pale skinned men are doubling their efforts to find and colonize lands that are not theirs, and that even in the Americas, a nation which broke away from a powerful European country are now being threatened by the very same empire it broke away from. The Executive Council converse behind closed doors and darkened rooms, discussing a small part these rumours, but mostly of one single fact: that a resurgent Spain, which was considered as a broken nation after being invaded themselves by a foreign nation, are now seeking to reintegrate its lost borders and colonies. The reemergence of the Spanish have led the highest officials of the Philippines in a state of Existential anxiety, and shifted its foreign policy in an almost 180 degrees. With the emergence of the Peninsulares threatening the fragile commonwealth, the young nation shall be tested once more, though of what it is is still yet to be seen.
(I think you mean Sunni)
The Victory Over Sistan and Baluchestan!
The victory is celebrated in the province, as Persian flags are ripped down from major buildings and replaced with the flag of the Afghan Empire. The Afghans promises the Baloch people that an autonomous Baluchestan state will be made within Afghanistan and self-governance is not out of the question. Meanwhile, the border with nearby provinces is fortified to protect against Persians who might want their country back.
The Siege of Birjand
The retaliation is slow at first, and the Persians are quick to lock the Afghan soldiers in the city. The current objective now is to look for an opening, to push out of the siege and reverse the siege on them. However, there is large doubts that the Persian army would leave any hole in their siege. If so, the Afghans plan to attempt to force their way out of the siege. The command to search for a hole in the siege has been given.
The Siege of Birjand
The Persian army have notably worse military equipment than the Afghans and have been demoralised by the loss of Sistan and Baluchestan
