1st Uri War. Result: Enemy Fleet annihilated. Tributary, Humiliate, Open borders.
1st Caloctoran War; 2229.09.11 - 2231.09.03 (8 days under 2 years); Result: Enemy Fleet annihilated, Vassalisation, Humiliate, Open borders.
2nd Uri War; 2242.01.02 - 2246.07.02 (4.5 years); Result: Fleet Annihilated. Complete Annexation. General put into Reserve, then died.
1st Yapathi/Heejam War; 2259.04.01 - 2265.04.09 (6 years); Results: Fleets Annihilated. Vassalsiation of both Empires. Caloctoran did the last half the work,
While their contribution to the whole was still important, not every dead made the cut to be a true hero of the Empire. In order to properly highlight those that stood out, removing those that did not from our list of heroes is the only way. In the end many did not make the cut, but those that did will now be a even more shining beacon for our Citizen!
In the Aesir System we found signs of a Irassian Mining Colony. The Irassians were the dominant power in this sector, lording over dozens of species. They were wiped out by a plague called the "Jarovian Pox". And it seems at least likely that their Subjects had a hand in spreading the plague. If so, their failings will be of vital importance for the future Security of Humanities Manifest Destiny!
We Ultimatively decided for the Defensive Agreement with the Uva-Xavani. While such a close alliance with a religious group might be problematic longterm, the strategic use of having at least one ally is not to be understimated.
The Yalon Regime sugested a Non-Agression pact. But we are no fools. We know exactly that they only want to protect their Flank as they conquer the Galaxy themself.
The Yalon jsut signed a Defense pact with the Kenjodan. We will ahve to see how that situation develops.
Our groundforces have been increased to a total of 12 Armies and our Fleet will soon reach 40 Destroyers, enabling us to finally begin teh Subjugation of the Yapathi Republic States.
The Kenjodan/Yalon Defense pact did not last long. Apparently there were severe differences in military maters.
The Fleet has been reinforced to 40 Units. While still about 50% shy of the total capacity, that should be enough to subjugate the Yapathi using our Caloctoran Vassals as support.
Fleet and Army are moving to Paradise, Kehines System in preparation for the assault.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of Sociologists under Tian He (OTG Founder), work on a "Empire Capitol Complex" has begun on new Earth.
Interestign find in the Irassian Mining Base. Apparently workers dropped the bodies of their infected comrades into a deep mining hole, in a futile attempt to prevent the Plague from spreading. It is unclear if the infected were still alive at that point.
This shows clearly why it is important to keep travel limited and regulated. As is only natural, we only allow humans free migration across the stars.
The Metrak jsut declared war on the Yalon. Who will be victories will be as open, as the question if the Mandasura will intervene in any way.
What the Mandasura will do is equally unclear.
The war agaisnt the Yapathi/Heejam Alliance has begun. The goal is nothing less then the subjugation of both parties and their addition to our List of Vassals. While also preventing any larger alliances from forming around the Xenophile Yapathi.
The 1st Enemy spaceport has been destoryed with help of the Caloctoran Fleet. 5 destroyers were lost. Meanwhile the enemy main Fleet entered the system.
Against all military Sanity, the Yapathi Fleet charged straight at the united Human/Caloctoran Fleets. Half the enemy fleet was destroyed before they jumped out. New ships are being build in New Earths and Unity Spaceports.
The first Yapathi planet has been captured. The fleet returns for a minor refit.
Tradition Unlock: Fleet Levies
"It is a vassal's sworn duty to provide military support to their overlords. We will fill up the lower ranks of our fleet with recruits from those nations that have pledged to serve us."
Effect: Vassals add 20% of their Naval Capacity to overlord
Civic changes were planned, due to Unlocking of the 3rd Slot. But still on cooldown till 2269.
The Fleet has been retrofitted. And while reinforcements are still trickling in, it is returning to the frontlines.
The Hejam Fleed tried to stage a counter-attack in the captured System and was annihilated.
The Zaydan are ordered to colonise Sasin. They should be suiteable to establish the colony there until humans arrive.
Scientist Ni Yang was killed during battles.
While we are chasing the remaining enemy Fleet across space, our Vassals have conquered another planet.
A alien Menace called a "Spectral Wraith" jsut destoryed the Curator Lambda Enclave.
The "Ministery of benevolence" is being build on New Earth. It will allows us ever better control over unruly Integrated Xenos.
Sasin Prime has been colonised.
Our Fleet has been retrofitted with new equipment and has begun the hunt for the Spectral Entity that dared to destroy the Enclave that would have served us so well. The Caloctoran can now pretty much wrap up this war on it's own, now that the enemy Fleets have been broken.
The Yapathi and Heejam have relented to becomming our Vassals. Most importanlty thanks to their Diplomatic Connections we have no once again made contact with Earth!
Unfortunatley earth is still as weak and un-ordered as we left them: The UN managed to become the world government, enforcing their ways of "Liberty for all" and unhealthy Interest in Xenos!
We found teh Wraith again. It is in Nimolan, a System with a Blue Star. According to the Curators that should mean it is now much weaker. The time to slay that beast has come!
The Wraith prooved more powerfull then we could have expected. The Fleet was practically cut in half jsut trying to engage it. We will need a different approach to fight this being.
The mericless class destroyers will be retrofitted to better fight this being in the future. Shields and afterburners should allow them to close the gap a lot faster and the bigger laser should proove more powerfull.
Tradition Unlock: Protection Racket
"Our obligation to protect our vassals from the dangers of the universe is one that we take very seriously. Alas, seeing to the defense of their worlds doesn't come cheap..."
Effect: +10% extra Income from Tributaries.
Domination Finished: -30% Reserach cost for between Vassals and Overlord.
Ascension Perk: Interstellar Dominion (+25% Border Range)
Our deal with the Riggan Enclave has run out. It was renewed and we also added the special resource from the Mutaagan and XuraCorp Enclaves to our imperial resources.
The Mendrak/Yalon conflict ended with a Decisive Vicotry for the Yalon Regime.
