A simple but highly-classified message was sent to Cruachan, Nadrink, and Ferinh.

To the esteemed leaders of the Tahoe Republic, the Kingdom of Viniland, and Canada,

We as the government and people of the Republic of New England would like to come to each of you with a simple request. You see, we have a somewhat limited experience in regards to national defense building, and as such, we would like to request assistance and support into building and establishing our national defenses and fortifications. We shall be indebted to you, and will pay back the favor whenever you need it.

Thank you for your patience and consideration.

					 - John Fitzgerald Kennedy, President of the Republic of New England.

Dear President Kennedy, 

We will gladly help you in improving your defenses with modern and fluid defensive measures, even though Tahoe is the master of static defenses, second to none. 
If you wish, we will send some men to help you with elastic defense doctrines. 

Regards, 
Chairman Leclerc

Message from the Ministry of Defense:

Viniland can provide assistance with all kinds of defenses, but we are more specialized in urban settings and protection against calamities and nuclear/EMP attacks - although by no means we falter at other aspects of national protection. I will personally go to new England along with a team of military engineers.

Tahoe, our good southern neighbor, is probably the fittest one when it comes to static defense, particularly when we're talking of border defenses. Just a FYI. 

-Daniele Favaloro, Minister of Defense

Dear Daniele Favaloro, Minister of Defense,

We thank you, and we shall make proper preparations for your arrival in Boston. We welcome any assistance for all types of defenses. Thank you for the FYI, we have sent a message to Tahoe and we are currently awaiting their response.

- With regards,
		 John F. Kennedy

Map of Tahoe's principle defensive lines in yellow

Note that the success of Tahoe's static defense system lies in basic facts about the topography of Tahoe. Tahoe is essentially a mountainous nation, with major mountain ranges being intersected by smaller ranges, hills, canyons and rivers, with a few major valleys or basins where most of the population is concentrated. This makes our static defensive systems much more effective than those found in other nations, all of which have flatter topography in key areas.

Our border defenses have grown as Tahoe has grown, with older lines surrounding more central areas. Our outermost line, on the current border, is the most vulnerable, because it stretches for hundreds of miles across relatively flat terrain. It is for this reason that this line is the most basic. It consists primarily of fences and obstacles that make passage extremely difficult and is designed to slow an enemy enough to allow Tahoe's army to counterattack. It is not designed to stop an enemy cold. Interior of this line is the Rocky Mountain Line. The Rocky Mountains effectively stop any attacker themselves, forcing the enemy into dozens of small mountain passes, all of which are equipped with mechanisms to render them impassable including tank traps, presighted artillery and deep set underground forts in the mountains holding artillery, mortars and missiles. All bridges are also pre-designed with slots for explosives to destroy them. As few as a hundred thousand soldiers could effectively hold the entire line against a force ten times their size.

The third line runs alongside the interior of the Rocky Mountains and is the old border line. This is our single most heavily fortified line in the country, with thousands of pre-positioned artillery pieces, bunkers, trench lines, forts, anti-aircraft guns/missiles. This line runs along natural boundaries such as mountains, hills and rivers and utilizes massive concrete and steel fortifications that can stop an enemy cold. This is the fortifications that the old Republic of Arizona found impossible to break through, despite their greater numbers and technology. In the north this line runs along the Rocky Mountains and is a continuation of the Rocky Mountain Line and in the south runs along the Colorado River, including the worlds largest canyon, the Grand Canyon.

The last line is the Cascade-Sierra line, running along the Cascade and Sierra Nevada mountain ranges. This is essentially a more interior version of the Rocky Line.

Thus, Tahoe has three principle types of national defense lines: border, natural and fortified.

The border line is for pinning an enemy in place and preventing illegal immigration or smuggling and consists mostly of barriers, walls and fences with a well developed road system for quickly moving forces to the breach.

The natural lines use natural barriers such as mountains and rivers for complementing man-made defenses. This is the most effective type since it is impossible for an enemy to destroy entire mountains. Under a thousand feet of solid granite and thirty feet of steel reinforced concrete are forts, bunkers and underground train lines for moving troops and supplies from mountain pass to mountain pass. In these natural bottlenecks, any enemy would find themselves under fire from every direction with very little they could do about it.

Fortified lines are the most heavily constructed lines, utilizing massive fortifications in lieu of natural barriers to stop an enemy, although natural features are included. (OOC: think maginot line on a 21st century scale)

In the air, Tahoe utilizes thousands of automated anti-aircraft guns ranging from heavy caliber autocannons to gatling guns and thousands of anti-air missile launchers with hundreds of thousands of missiles, most in bunkers under mountains, where the launcher appears for a split second to launch the missile before falling back to be reloaded.

On the sea, Tahoe has numerous SOSUS lines, mine-fields and underwater torpedo launchers, although the Tahoan coast is so mountainous that anybody coming ashore would find it nearly impossible to create a beachhead.

To the Tahoan Ministry of Defense

This is quite impressive. Very impressive, indeed. We can do nothing but applaud you on your feat, and we would like to emulate you. Would you mind if we used your plans to implement similiar defenses on our soil? Would you like to send military engineers or specialists to New England to help us chart out a plan for our defenses? We are aware that the topography of the Republic of New England are mountainous, primarily the Appalachian mountains that cover most of the state. This would help greatly benefit national defense. 

If you do wish to send over anyone, they are welcome to come to Boston. We shall make proper preparations. Once again, we thank you.

- With regards,
		John F. Kennedy

OOC: How did you find that impressive base map? :o

Tahoe will send engineers and military advisors to New England, as well as designs for both our underground and above ground fortifications and some of the military hardware used in them.

Additionally, Tahoe's Army is availible to send advisors to help train New England forces in the proper use of static defenses combined with rapid response forces.

OOC: Just google searched for a topographic map of the US

It is wonderful to hear that, we shall await their arrival. Several of our military officials shall greet them once they arrive.

OOC: You can RP the men arriving at the Boston International Airport in Boston, if ya want. Also, V the King and Lynneth, you can RP your men arriving at Boston too. ^_^

A large green-gray bearing the markings of the Tahoe Air Force lands at Boston International Airport. Quickly taxiing to a discrete gate, about a dozen men in green uniforms and more than two dozen civilians disembark, approaching a waiting New England Military delegation. With the Tahoans are engineers and military advisors to help New England begin construction.

The New England delegation was indeed waiting at them at the Boston International Airport. They consisted of several military generals and a dozen of civilian officials. The military generals were adorned in military uniforms and the civilian officials were dressed in official clothes. The head of the delegation smiled as he saw the Tahoan delegation approach them. He stepped forward and saluted.

Hello. Welcome to the Republic of New England. It is an honor to meet with you at last.” The man began. “Let me introduce myself. My name is Dwight David Eisenhower, and I am the Supreme Commander of the Army. I have come here to receive you, along with the others, on behalf of the New England government. We look forward to working with you.

OOC: You can continue RPing my characters for your sake in development

OOC: Aww...come on. It's no fun RPing all by myself. :P

IC: After exchanging pleasantries with the Tahoans, Eisenhower and the rest of his delegation led them to several, armored military vehicles that would take them from the Boston International Airport to the State House near the center of the New England capital. After meeting with President Kennedy himself and several other officials, the Tahoans would be debriefed about what was needed to know regarding the New England defenses...
