"To the Sovereign Nations of our beloved Southern Continent,

 

Brothers,

 

For over three thousand years, our ancestors inhabited these lands. They worshipped their own gods, they lived their lives peacefully, and built upon their own lands homes of their own likings. Trees were not stripped unceremoniously, animals were not slaughtered mercilessly, and our people's did not die needlessly. Wars were not fought for the sake of wars, and blood was not shed for the sake of riches. Our people prospered, and though they were not the harbingers of a technological new age, they were happy.

 

Until that foreign menace came and occupied our lands. They stole the riches of the earth, and hollowed out a place for their soulless thrones. They erected monuments of gluttony, and built statues devoted to their sins. They oppressed our ancestors until weak and broken they said not a word to the fall of our once beautiful empire. For a thousand years our people obeyed without rebuke.

 

But now no more.

 

The Houses of Moash, Heraan, Tekel, Dani, and Vella hereby declare that we will no longer endure this baseless tyranny. Our ancestor beheld the foreign menace and thought them gods. Now we know they are devils, and we are the divine children. Stand proud, for you stand with the unified voices of millions as we cry out: No more.

 

On this day, the Auroran Empire assumes her birthright. 

On this day, the Auroran people stand up as the free men and women we were destined to be.

On this day!, we shall rise from the lightless earth shaded by those trees far more ancient than we, and we look to those devil gods and bellow, 'this is our home. WE ARE FREE!'

 

[i]The rumbling of cannons firing off in the distance continue for seconds after the speech before succumbing to the static[/i]

(OOC: you all receive the same box and letter. You are free to respond as you will)

 

[i]Two foreign emissaries bearing the seal of the House of Vella and House Moash are dispatched after a correspondence is sent weeks in advance of their arrival at each nation's capital building. The Moashan Emissary is carrying a ritual garb reserved for the ceremonial ascension of emperor. He is clad in an ancient plated armor, with a ceremonial sword at his side. The Moashan Emissary's principle objective, is to ensure the safe return of the Vellan Emissary. For this reason, against the behest of most police and national security agents, only the Moashan may be escorted, but the Vellan may not (in tandem with international law regarding diplomatic immunity). The Vellan emissary is like wise dressed in similar clothing (albeit in different shades and intricate designs) and is furnished with no ceremonial weapon. Instead, he is carrying an extravagantly ornate box with the seal of the House Tekel on the top of its metal infused wooden frame. It is ordained with gems that display the flag of the soverign nation on the right side, with a single, dazzlingly red set jewel (larger than the combined jewels of the foreign flag) on the left side of the box. The words [u]Eye of Fury[/u] is written in Auroran in an arc over the large preset jewel. The Two Emissaries wait to be received by the foreign leaders where the rest of the contents of the box shall be revealed in formal ceremony.[/i]

While normally emissaries are provided with a standard diplomatic greeting by a team led by the MoFA, the reception of gifts was always handled personally by the Empress, much to the dismay of her personal security forces. They could not provide for safety against any possibly outcome, but there was a fully trained medical staff within 100 feet of the chamber in which she received diplomatic guests. Kazuko hated being doted on like a child but she couldn't escape it even if she wanted to, it was what she agreed upon taking title of Empress.
 
The emissaries would arrive at Narita International Airport to a formal red carpet and a group of a half dozen younger diplomats welcoming them to Japan and informing them that they were to be brought to the Imperial Palace for a formal reception. The Imperium had honor guards as well, so no weapons would be taken, however a list of the laws that bodyguards were expected to follow while in Japan was given to the Moashan, though it was unexpected their guest would require it. The emissaries were then taken to the cars waiting to whisk them away to the Imperial Palace. Their path would only allow a limited section of the ruins of the old city to be seen at all off the side of the highway. They were welcomed at the palace by Osamu Saito, the MoFA at the entrance to the Palace, "We welcome you, Emissaries of Auroran Empire, to our nation, Her Imperial Majesty has been expecting you, and has ensured there will be a meal fitting of such esteemed guests to partake in after the ceremony."
 
They were then brought into the reception hall, it was simply decorated, a large room with traditional Shōji walls, and tatami flooring, the only furnishing a raised platform on which a simple wooden throne stood, the Empress sitting upon it in flowing dark red formal robes, a small golden crown seemingly woven into her intricate hairstyle. "Welcome to my nation, Sons of Aurora. we were filled with joy to hear of the restoration of a nation on the South American continent once more, after such a long period of darkness and silence."

Neither of the Auroran emissary's seemed taken aback by the grandiosity of the throne room. Their approach to the throne was slow and deliberate, and their expressions were peaceful yet distant. The Moashan stopped several feet before the Vellasian and turned about face, until he was facing the wall in absolute stilled discipline. The Vellasian continued forward but a few feet, where there he slowly fell prostrate before the empress as his arms stretched outward to place the box before her. Still on his kness, the Vellasian erects his back, focuses his eyes that he is never looking the empress in the face, (but rather to where her knees barely jut from her flowing robes) and, in fluent Japanese, addressed the empress,

 

 

Your Imperial Majesty, Empress Hoshiko, Grand Cordon of the Supreme Order of the ChrysanthemumGrand Cordon of the Order of the Paulownia FlowersGrand Cordon of the Order of the Precious CrownGrand Cordon of the Order of the Sacred Treasure

 

History has called your mighty home the land of the rising sun. We have a legend that says when our Mountain Sun (the sun that sets behind what is considered the Andean Mountain Range known to the Aurorans as “The Arm of AOR”) meets our Sea Sun, we shall transcend to the place where our ancestors reside. What an honor it is that we, humble Auroran’s, stand in the very throne room of the Kingdom of the rising sun.

 

He smiles warmly, bowing just his head before speaking again.

 

It is traditional, when an Emperor is enthroned, that the surrounding lands are sent a symbol of the Emperor’s house in order to establish both ruling right and to open positive relations, even if the ruler is at odds with a neighboring house.

 

But this tradition was eradicated because we were not historically prepared for the arrival of foreigners on our soil. Our precious continent was once divided into five precincts for each individual house. Now, we are limited to a humble country and the five houses have meditated much over the meaning of this state of affairs. Therefore, it is with a new interpretation of our recently emerging identity that we, instead of five separate houses, are one unified empire.

 

His hands dance gingerly across the box, ever gracefully turning it to reveal the set jewels laid out to form the Japanese Flag. He turns the box to show the other single set jewel and translates the words “Eye of Fury”

 

Those words, he explains are the names our house leaders take when they reach the highest honor of Mundokiir. It symbolizes that we are the children of warrior gods. Often our enemies demonize our history as being one of war mongering and cannibalism. The Vellasian smiled subtly as if to hint to a deeper irony of the true barbarism of civilized societies but in truth, we were born of great struggle that is demonstrable in not only our very natures as creatures upon this planet, but in the very planet itself. Much like the warriors that detail that tapestry that is the very history of your empire like fine embroidery, we too believe in a code of honor. For without it, we are nothing.

 

He turns the front of the box to face the Empress and opens it. The first thing revealed are golden letters melted into the inside lid. There are two columns, one which holds the Auroran words and in the second column the Japanese translation.

 

Because these words are sacred words from our holiest texts I, a Vellasian, nonmember of House Dani, am forbidden to utter them beyond the walls of the Empire. However, they are a stanza taken from our epic prose:

 

And night fell upon the fractured world,

Where upon its despairing face,

Fell fire and fury.

And from the clash of sundered darkness

Were born the children of the world,

And they were Archindar

Which means ‘Never Dying’.

 

Without missing a beat his hands moved into the box and removed an item covered in a bright crimson covered fabric. When he set it down, it became apparent that the item itself was resting atop a very small cushion. He did not remove the fabric, but instead reached within the box and removed a matching set of golden wings. He very carefully attached a thin golden chain unifying the wings. When the chain had fastened both wings, a tiny mechanism within each wings clicked causing springs to expand the wings causing smaller wings to drop out of a small canal once hidden in its compact form. The accessory seemed to come alive and spread its wings as though it were a bird. He laid the necklace so that it surrounded the veiled, cushioned item creating a mini throne. Removing the fabric, there lay resting on the pillow one of the most ornate dagger, bearing the House Heraan emblem on its hilt, an Auroran smith would ever have the honor of producing.

 

I pray the Empress will not find offense, as this is our most difficult tradition to explain. Because we value combat as the highest form of discipline, all emperors provide regional leaders with a dagger forged in their own blood. By accepting this dagger, you acknowledge our Emperor as your Blood Enemy.

 

The Vellasian bows respectfully, and continues to speak prostrate before the Empress.

 

We honor your beauty and majesty and this is no threat. Within our tradition Blood Enemies will ensure the survival of their foes until such time open, fair, combat can be achieved. This is not to say that our Emperor seeks to do battle with your highness sometime in the distant future, rather it is a promise that an Emperor would never cowardly resort to assassinations to end his enemies. Our Honor forbids such dark practice, and in truth, this royal dagger ensures, so long as an emperor holds breathe, you will never succumb to such a fate. However, you are more than welcome to it as a gift to symbolize an open relationship between our Emperor and yourself.

 

The Vellasian slowly returns to an upright position, before continuing

 

If this pleases you, your highness this is the conclusion of the ceremony. We pray that these gifts are to your liking, for the very Mundokiir’s of each house fashioned them for you.

 

The wings here are a symbol of admittance into our Empire. Our Emperor has decreed that no foreigner shall be allowed to step foot into our lands who do not carry the Moashan Wings of Liberating Strife. So long as you wear these wings upon reaching our lands, you will be granted admittance to all areas save the holy sights [sic], where our ancestors and gods once walked the earth together.

 

The Vellasian remained kneeling, the gifts of the Auroran Empire strewn before the empress, waiting patiently for permission to move. Indeed, he knelt with such equanimity, that he almost seemed to be in stasis; a statue of devote Auroran discipline.

The Two Auroran Diplomats are welcomed in as well as offered German Passports. The Two Auroran Diplomats would be offered a ride a representative of the German Government to their assigned embasy. As well as an offer of well being, several gift baskets awatied them as the embassy including a Pre-Paid Visa card loaded with 10,000 to accompany the ambassadors and welcome them to the German Nation.

 

In response, Germany also sent over a small team of diplomats to Bogota'.

[OOC:The capital of the Auroran Empire is Archindar, not Bogota. City names will become available very soon. The correction is simply for the record, lest I forget. I also take it your diplomats are arriving by Jet?]

 

Off the North Eastern point of Aurora (Known as Spear’s Tip; Oktara) an advanced warning radio tower transmitted a warning signal to the homeland. Moashan security forces scrambled a pair of A-37 Dragonflies to intercept the unauthorized, and unidentified  flying aircraft. Moashan air force had no desire to flex their military capabilities, but a squadron of IAI Kfir’s were on standby in case either pilots radioed in a message of noncompliance.

 

Static interrupts the silence as the captain receives his orders from the mainland.

 

In Auroran

 

Your orders, Captain, are to intercept and identify the incoming aircraft vessel. Intentions, nationality, and whether or not they are a threat to our people. Do not underestimate the quantity of the craft. Our immergence from slavery does not make us invulnerable. You are to escort their aircraft to the Mumaku (modern day Aruba) Island. They are not to proceed to Auroran airspace.

I repeat his voice adopting a tone of such severity, even the Captain’s hair prickled beneath his heavily laden g-suit you will not allow that aircraft to enter into Auroan airspace. I would rather have a 1,000 falling burning corpses than one foreigner place a single foot on our sacred lands.

 

Aye, Mundokiir Turo'Mar. It shall be as you command.

 

The transmission ends with a static chirp, before the Captain relays the orders to his wingman. His wingman raises his right hand, signaling his understanding, and they both proceed to the aircraft’s last known trajectory. Their J85-GE-17A turbojet engines propel them over crystalline waters. For several miles, they fly through pristine weather conditions, thanking the gods for the opportunity to stretch their wings. Even the potential, albeit unlikely, threat is welcomed as no Moashan fighter has known combat since before the fall of the Empire.

In less than an hour, the two fighters notice a small speck moving closer to them at a reasonable speed. Their long range radar scanners confirm the matching trajectory and the singularity of the incoming object.

 

In Auroran

 

This looks to be our target. Do not engage until I give the signal.

 

It dawned on the captain that he did not know the nationality, let alone the language, of this incoming ship. Communicating was going to be difficult at best.

 

Still in Auroran

 

This is Captain Sonete of the Moashan Aerial Defense Fleet. You are in direct violation of restricted Auroran Airspace. No foreigners are allowed beyond international waters. State your nationality, and intentions, and be prepared to be escorted to the offshore island of Mumaku.

 

The Captain looks over to his wingman, and signals for them both to split up and take defensive position behind the aircraft while he parallels their port side. Both pilots reach matching velocity with the foreign airplane and await a response from the unknown visitor

The Empress looked down upon the emissary as he spoke, listening to his words carefully, impressed by his intimate knowledge of her language and full list of titles, most foreigners had trouble wrapping their tongues around eastern languages. their history was a fascinating one, she sat in silence to allow his full explanation to be heard, the ornate box was truly a work of art, what was inside it was even more impressive. Upon the end of his speech she sat for a moment carefully considering his words.

 

"The sons and daughters of Japan are the children of Hachiman, our God of War and divine protector of the Japanese Islands. Our society was born from strife against the mainland, and war has given us much advances, even our defeat at the hands of the Americans in the Second World War helped us in the long term, it proved to the Japanese that our people cannot learn merely from within, that the path to victory is paved with the collaboration of many cultures and people together. In order for Japan to regain its spot as a world leader we must look outwards and work with all surrounding us to ensure that we hear every side, every opinion. We are the people of the Rising Sun, we too were once splintered, and when faced with external enemies the people of Japan united, perhaps in time the five houses of Aurora will come to harmonious balance as the shogun learned to in our nation."

 

She took the dagger from the ornate box, twirling it between her fingers, the weapon had perfect balance, spinning in her hand easily.

 

"You share a very spectacular history with me, and I am impressed with your ability to speak Japanese so fluently. I will be your Emperor's blood enemy, and I hold deep respect for a culture with such a ritual, it is important to honor the traditions of the past. After listening to your history, our nations seem to share much in common, I look forward to future discussions with such a fascinating culture and meeting your Emperor personally. Rise Warrior, and tell your Emperor he is welcome in my home."
