The Icarians were so used to victory that when they tasted bitter defeat for the first time, they lost the will to fight. Kinda makes me feel bad.
With the end in sight, I have decided to take executive action. Cosette will be transferred to Ryuvia. Hence forth I wash my hands of this dilemma, however, I will promise all affected Alliance citizens full compensation for all losses she inflicted, to be given out when peace and prosperity permits.
None of the Waifus can die in this war. They have actual plot armor. Not only would executing one of them be akin to cultural genocide against her people, but I don't think it can be done.
(I also threw a lot of effort into getting Cosette on my side in-game. Maybe if she turns down the crazy we can form a neutral rim alliance to fight away the rest of the universe. That or she's a throwaway character now since you had the chance to execute her. I doubt LiS will want to make a detailed branching story based on whether you killed her or not.)
I believe there is merit to all sides of this argument. I believe Cosette is already in custody, correct? Shall we have a military trial to decide what we do with her? How about we do this in a fair and formal manner?
Alright my comrades in arms, this war is rapidly coming to an end. (So rapidly in fact that writing a story about it has become more troublesome than before...)
In preparation for the total capitulation of Icaria, and the hopes that this war will be our last, I have taken the liberty of drawing up a peace treaty that I feel will benefit all involved parties.
The terms I propose are such: Article 1: The majority of Claudia and Icaria will be released as free nations with Union friendly regimes. They will become equal members of the Waifu Union alongside the Alliance and Conglomerate. All lands formerly belonging to Chigara and Cosette will be entrusted to the leaders of the Ryuvian Empire, whether their goals be annexation or "liberation". Article 2: The Ryuvian Empire and all of it's member states will agree to a non-aggression pact of indefinite duration with the Waifu Union and all of it's member states. Article 3: Should they so choose, the Ryuvian Empire and all of it's member states may join the Waifu Union as equal partners. In this case, the territories claimed from Cosette and Chigara must be released as sovereign members of the Waifu Union as was the case with Claudia and Icaria.
All combatants, please feel free to ratify, reject, or propose an amendment to any or all articles proposed in this treaty. I recommend that allies discuss this among themselves, particularly article 3, as it is not to be taken lightly. As the proposer of this treaty and initiator of peace talks, I will sign first.
I, Rellek, as a representative of the Ava Conglomerate and current President of the Waifu Union, ratify articles 1, 2 and 3 of this treaty as they were proposed.
Hopefully this will bring peace and prosperity in our time. Kayto wills it.
Also, as long as you're always watching, Mags, Is there a sunrider discord channel? I've considered making an unofficial one, but if there is an actual one out there, that would be preferable.
Oh, and the server is up and (mostly) running. Any interested parties will have to PM me for the IP, because I'm not slapping that information on the internet. That's a terrible idea. You'll need this btw: Mods!
In the end, this course of action was inevitable. There was to be a blood bath on this site regardless of the decision made. Now it was about minimizing this... tragic, yet necessary sacrifice. Do not mistake my words. The sight of the city burning through the dark night like a midnight sun will forever haunt me. I shudder to think of what horrors of loss lay within the burning rubble of the Empire of the setting Tsun. Operation Godsplitter must never be forgotten. May the lesson of this horror adorn every history book to come. Let every future generation know, that as the blazing city turned to embers, then ash, I wept.
Funny you should say that, looniestrumble, because that's exactly what we're going to do! We can't turn a civilian city into a crater! So we're sending you into the meatgrinder. I mean battle. Think less Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and more along the lines of Stalingrad for this one.
Friends! The Coalition front has reached the Icarian Capitol! There will be fierce resistance from land, air and sea, but we must take the city if we are to win the war! I will lead the ground assault personally.
Black: 1200 (+3) Oh she would definitely wear a black plugsuit. Red: 1452 Blue: Eliminated Purple: Eliminated Yellow: 630 (-5) Pink: Eliminated Green: 1122 White: 1536
Thanks, Somasam. Trenches are underrated, I think. Still working on what I want to do for a grand story arch.
I know Ava takes direct control of the Sunrider during battle, so Kayto can focus on the whole strategy thing. I assume whatever ryder she piloted would have a similar role. Can I take a moment to say that the Ceran officer uniforms are awesome? Kayto, Kryska and Ava look fabulous all the time. I want that uniform in real life so I can never take it off.
