Sarah Tintagyl Posted April 6, 2010 Report Share Posted April 6, 2010 Adelaide Josselyne, Paladin of the Aquitaine Armed Forces watched as the private jet descended from the sky onto the tarmac of Bordeaux International Airport. She had her hands clasped firmly behind her back and wrung them slowly as she waited anxiously for the men inside the plane to disembark. Over the past few weeks since the declaration of Aquitaine's independence the country had been busy, but more so, it was the military that was running around the most. Adelaide had been given command of an army, numbering half a million men, a navy of over thirty ships, and an air force of over eighty planes, but the fact of that matter was that many of the soldiers in the infantry lacked sufficient training for war, Aquitaine had yet to expand its naval power outside of their small outlets in the Bay of Biscay or the Mediterranean Sea, and the air force needed to be expanded as well. In addition to the active military, Adelaide was also in charge of a gargantuan construction of defense structures throughout Aquitaine. There was no doubt in her mind, in Therese's mind, or many of both civilians or military personnel that defense was something deemed important, especially given the fact that Aquitaine was essentially in a cold war of sorts with Burgundy, whilst no contact had been made with the newly independent country of Brittany. The Paladin would be the first to admit that while she knew how to lead and train soldiers, the actual bureaucracy for constructing defensive structures across the country escaped her and with most of the privately and nationally owned construction companies worried about infrastructure repair Adelaide had to look outside of Aquitaine for assistance. There were of course hundreds upon hundreds of defense corporations that she could turn to, but the fame of Kriegland's BlitzKrieg Armaments was known across the world and it was something the Paladin aimed to take advantage of. Everything was set up for her meeting with the CEO of the company, Kevin Schidner, there were discussions on new tanks, hopefully planes and ships, and finally a large array of defensive structures, both static and mobile defenses that would guarantee Aquitaine's independence for years, decades, and centuries to come. As Schidner disembarked from the plane, Adelaide along with two of the Knights of Aquitaine immediately approached him. The Paladin bowed and stuck out her hand in greeting. "Mr. Schidner, it is a pleasure, I assure you. Welcome to Aquitaine. You'll be riding with me to my fortress at Pau. We will be able to discuss your business here and hopefully have a toast to its success." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
