As Space Austria has offered an alliance with Praetoria (as far as I can tell), why doesn't Trattoria join us? It would be very profitable for them...

Would it though? It would be more profitable to sell weapons to them and make money off the war. Also Austria blew up Goldman bank which is a great way to piss of the trats

Yeah, I know. That's what I mean, it would be profitable to sell the DRKNS Trattorian Military supplies and units. They wouldn't sell to the Praetorian side because that's who Space Austria is fighting for.

Wait, did you even read anything I posted in this thread? The whole point is that they didn't...

ultra tl;dr summary: the Trattorians deflected the Space Austrian lasers at the last minute, no damage was done to either Pernault or GS. Trattoria and GS are still pretty upset that Austria even had these intentions though. If anyone still cares about this in December when I get back to my legos they can go to war.

EDIT: Regarding the Kult of Darkness, Trattoria is not really interested in joining. Their diplomacy mainly focuses on multilateral alignment with the largest superpowers in the galaxy, and considers themselves a part of the galactic "establishment" and fighting those who would disrupt it. The Kult of Darkness's goals of conquering Nehellenium and the general all-around focus on darkness do not really fit in with Trattorian policy (even though it's pretty evil, Trattoria would ostensibly align with "light" i.e. Light Is Not Good). That in addition to the fact that in-universe Trattoria is too arrogant to join a new alliance with a bunch of small, newer powers.

Trattoria has an informal alliance with Praetoria (informal since NATO got dissolved), since they both share a lot of similar outlooks and are fellow regional powers, so if anything it would declare war on the Kult of Darkness. Nowadays I tend to avoid declaring war or making big policy changes/events unless I can immediately act on it though so I'm waiting it out, which is why I beat around the bush on formally declaring war on Space Austria.

I'm happy to work with you guys when I can. I'm a little sad since if Archduke had posted this even a week earlier before I had moved out I might have been able to do and allow more exciting stuff than "lol Trattoria saved the day at the last minute" but that's all I can do right now. I'll be happy to join in around December if this stuff is still going on. If that's the case then I promise despite my current response that Archduke's thing here wouldn't have been in vain.

Pssst! Hiremas Alkerith is the physical embodiment of light! My other alliance members voted me down!
I will very probably betray the kult after a while, perhaps then would you set up a trade agreement with Alkeria?  :warhead:

I like to imagine that Hiremas is just diplomatting this right out in the open because minifigs are bad at subterfuge.

:lol:

Sooo...
We should start a page that officially solidifies the beginning storyline of the Magikalennik war. (I guess that's its name now)
I know we have war declarations strewn through the forums, so we need to just quote those back into one thread. Also, we should add this to the Nehelennium "major wars and conflicts" page (or whatever its called) whenever we actually start spinning storyline.

Also, since having actual battles will be difficult (possible but difficult), we should confer about doing some LDD battles or even just having brainstorming sessions (that don't even involve briks, just making up some storyline) as well as doing personal soaps. Since my troops are easy enough to make (as long as they have black heads or are wearing all black), having others soap my guys shouldn't be a problem. I will have a harder time with making your guys' armies, since I have almost all of my figs in either DRK, SSA, or smaller Alien factions. My thought is that we should possibly think about starting to think about this thing, as a group.  :yuno:

tl;dr summary:
Make an official page about the war (not Kult alliance). use LDD for battles? We should get together and talk about the storyline.
thoughts or comments?

Sounds good to me. We'll definitely have to start up a proper thread with all of this put together.
LDD battles are probably the most realistic for most, especially those with fewer budgets, although  I'm planning on expanding my collection somewhat, which will hopefully include adding some DRK and Praetorian units (I've just cobbled together a Praetorian scout for a soap I'm planning)
Let's get to work, I guess!
