PostSubject: Stirrings in the Ordenreich   Thu Sep 19, 2013 7:58 pm

*The Ordenreich had been thought to have been a firmly militaristic, totalitarian state. A match made in heaven when it came to other powers like the Herakleans but when the Hildenburen hit the Ordenreich hard it started a chain of events that have been slowly growing among the civilian populace of the Ordenreich. Now with recent conflicts and loss of life of Ordenreich soldiers at Praos now becoming public some of these movements that have been growing ever since the Hildenburen war have finally revealed themselves. All across the Ordenreich's core worlds and colonies Ordenreich citizens have taken to the street in nonviolent protest of the Ordenreich government. They did not want to completely overthrow the government or radically change it they only wanted a few concessions. There were many minor problems but the major ones are: 1. O.S.S.C. Livenstein change its stance in the Compact from active military member to passive anti-piracy ally, 2. establishment of an elected citizen government for domestic and economic affairs, 3. Humanization of the Ordenreich military, and 4. Withdrawal of active Ordenreich forces in Heraklea and the Praos conflict immediately after resolution and refraining from joining future conflicts. The bullets below explain further on the previous points...

1. Ordenreich citizens no longer wish to be part of the Compact as an enforcer. The citizens feel that such a stance is only to benefit their old rivals, Heraklea, while they do not want to leave the Compact as the anti-piracy laws laid down by the Compact are a good idea the citizens state that they, "will no longer be Heraklea's attack dog."

2. The Ordenreich Hierarchy currently has entire control over all aspects of its society, economics, and military. The citizens want an elected government set up that will meet every six months that will have a "by population" representation from every Ordenreich colony and core world. This body will have control over all domestic affairs and have at least a say in economic affairs. The military and foreign affairs will remain in control of the Hierarchy.

3. The cultural renaissance currently sweeping through the Ordenreich citizen has made said citizens protest the impersonal and brutal tactics of its military. While they have no problems with the military size, weapons, or training. They demand the soldiers be allowed to live normal lives, socialize, etc to make them more human so they can integrate easier with the civilian population.

4. This is an extension of point number 1. The Ordenreich citizens are demanding that the Ordenreich, upon the successful conclusion of combat operations in Praos, pull all of its troops and ships from Praos as well as pulling all active military forces out of Heraklea. The "all future conflicts" clause is also partly that the Ordenreich citizens fear another incursion of the Hildenburen and don't want to get involved in an attrition war with another military great power like the Rheans with extragalactic threats like the Hildenburen still at large

The stage has been set. The protesters now are occupying the government plazas of every major city in ever core world and colony of the Ordenreich. The Ordenreich Hierarchy has announced that it will meet in private talks with the leaders of, what is now being called, the "Citizens Guard" to negotiate the demands of the Citizen's Guard. It is hard to tell what these negotiations will do to the Ordenreich foreign policy and whether or not it will flip the balance of power in the galactic community.*

(OOC: I was going to have the conclusion in here as well but figured that people might want to RP their government's reaction to this news. I will wait a few days before posting the outcome but I will say whatever happens here will not affect my involvement in the Praos RP. So go ahead and make your posts)

Talent Diane Morris leaned back in her seat as she observed the crowds of protestors on the streets below. Though their attention largely seemed to be focused on the Herakleans, as far as foreign policy went, she could not help but feel concern. Such protest was, to say the least, extremely unusual to the Centauri, if not unthinkable. The closest thing the Centauri ever had to protests were drone riots, which, as the name suggested, were much less protests with coherent goals but rather a destructive outburst of the Centauri underclass. Of course, drone protests were largely a bygone memory in the present day - superior memegeneering methods had largely eliminated the causes of drone riots, and most Centauri now only knew conformity and orthodoxy.

Of course, she realized, a drone riot was probably not the most apt comparison. This protest seemed to span across all levels of the OrdenReich civilian population, and there was some kind of leadership behind it, with very coherent and enumerated political goals. Indeed, it was more than a protest - it seemed to be a movement, an idea that seemed even more alien to the Centauri. What kind of society could let change come from bottom up? For the Centauri, it seemed self-evident that a properly developed society should have change come from top down - by the diktats of the leadership and their implementation by the memegeneers. Still, although this degeneration of the OrdenReich society concerned her, she had to focus on more practical matters.

If the demands of the protestors were met, the OrdenReich would withdraw their forces from the developing conflict, leaving only the Pact of Brotherhood to fend against the Christanans and their newfound Rhean allies. Only a few days ago the Centauri were quite confident of their chances, but now there was much more uncertainty. In recent years Centauri technology had matched or perhaps exceeded Rhean technology in most ways, barring construction, and the Herakleans, while comparatively primitive, still served as formidable allies, losing OrdenReich firepower and manpower would be devastating. The sides were already shaping up to be quite evenly matched, and this only tilted the advantage to the Christanans.

Still, there was only so much that she could do regarding the internal affairs of the OrdenReich. It would be brazen to interfere at this time, and as such she simply sent a message to the Hochmeister.

{Encrypted}

We appreciate your respect of our sovereignty. I understand this is a difficult position for us all but foreign aid suppression will only enflame the issue. If I remember from the Earth archives your people supplied mine a "british" empire used Hessian mercenaries to attack rebels in one of their colonies and it only turned a bad situation worse. Aid will not be necessary and the last thing the Ordenreich needs is a civil war with such a powerful enemy right on our doorstep hence why I'm attempting a diplomatic solution when we still have the trust of our people. I cannot guarentee anything at this moment. Our military stands firmly behind our government and will honor whatever decisions we make but the citizens have effectively frozen the Ordenreich economy and war machine until this issue is resolved. I've kept this quiet to maintain face with the interstellar community but the Ordenreich is no longer capable of producing FOABs for our ships on the front lines because the factories producing them have no workers as they have all joined the Citizen's Guard movement. Our artillery fleets supporting the assault on Praos are down to their last salvo. I trust you will keep the knowledge secret as the Christanans will no doubt press demands if they knew our weakness.

Sincerely,
Hochmeister Micah von Guelder

P.S. I have ordered Ordenreich troops to set up a defensive perimeter around the embassy quarter. You have my assurances that any violent pushes by the movement or the occasional anarchist will not reach your embassy but if you wish to leave for your safety I will arrange transport.

(OOC: You said they weren't asking for a radical change, but going from having no elected body to having an elected body, however unofficial or powerless, is a pretty radical change as history goes.)

Burnination makes no official comment. Which is to say, Jenova doesn't comment. But it is clear from Burninite nets that there is near unanimous support for the protest movement in Burnination. This is due to its nonviolence and to its democratizing demands.

Official Heraklean Government Response as Presented by Commodore Cadfan Simona, HDS

“Well, obviously we object to the characterization of our relationship with the Hierarchy as that somehow the Order is our 'attack dog.'  To date Heraklean and Ordenreich forces have engaged in only one joint adventure, the ongoing conflict in Paros.  A conflict that is born of an unprovoked attack on Heraklea which is the only reason we took a leading role in the retaliatory strike.

“My government would also like to remind the 'Citizen's Guard' that pirates are a threat to all peoples.  They are the natural enemies of all professional navies.  I won't deny that our interests are served by an Ordenreich that is actively enforcing anti-piracy laws, but at the same time that serves the interests of the people of the Ordenreich.  It makes travel of civilian ships safer, thus encouraging trade and benefiting all parties.  The HSN intervenes in acts of piracy and hunt down pirates, regardless of their victims.  We even target pirates raiding Christanan shipping.  I would hope that an honorable and responsible people as found in the Ordenreich would see the universe similarly.

“Additionally, it is no secret that it has been a fond hope of my government to eventually achieve a mutual defense pact with the Ordenreich.  We wish this because a block as strong and unified as would be formed in Central Korel through such a relationship would encourage greater long term stability.  With such alliances in place, each of us would be less likely to be subject to attack by others, ensuring between us fewer wars, fewer loses, more peace and more prosperity.  As such, we would caution against the embracement of a policy that steadfastly avoids all conflict, as such stands inevitably make one more susceptible to, if not more wars, certainly more exploitation by those willing to use force to compel favorable treaties.

“We would also advise the 'Citizen Guard' to carefully consider any reforms they demand of the military, for they may inadvertently force changes that are prejudicial to good order and discipline.  By its very nature, a military culture requires certain characteristics that may not be present or well understood in a civilian society.  Soldiers must be able to trust their fellow soldier to do their duty without question as they must trust their commander to make use of them wisely.  Every soldier who gives their oath knows that one day they may called upon to give that last full measure of devotion.  A soldier must be able to make that sacrifice, as such one must be very careful when one attempts to change central elements to a military's character.

“Ultimately, these are internal matters that must be decided by the Hierarchy.  While we caution against making sweeping changes to Ordenreich society in a short time frame, the Hierarchy must choose the path they feel best for their nation and their people, and we will support whatever decision that is.”

* * * * *

Unofficial Heraklean Government Position as Conveyed by Secret Back-Channels.

(OOC: Psst... Heraklea. The Citizen's Guard are still all for the anti-piracy measures just not the joint military ventures)

*As with any movement there are extreme branches that break off the main group to fulfill a personal agenda. One such group was a group of Citizen's Guard who began referring themselves as "Neo-Nationalists." This group wants the Ordenreich to return to the "good ole days" when they were "isolationship and strong." The Hochmeister had already reminded the group that it was historically proven that isolationists fall behind technologically all the time and the Ordenreich has seen more growth and prosperity in the years since they opened up to the galaxy then before when under the sick influence of the Black Order. Many news organizations had suspected that the Black Order funded the Neo-Nationalists. Anyway, the Neo-Nationalists had gathered in huge numbers around the embassy quarter but were being kept out by Ordenreich troops. News cameras were on sight capturing the scene unfolding for all to see.

Protestor: Let us in, motherf***er! Those god**n aliens deserve to die!

Ordenreich soldier: Attention all citizens, this area is foreign territory protected by the Hierarchy. Admittance is not allowed by Ordenreich citizens unless given express permission by the respective embassy. If you are an citizen of a nation that has an embassy here please approach the gate with a passport a photo ID for processing. All other must stand back.

Protestor: You f***in robot! You care nothing about us! Go kill babies or whatever it is you soldiers do!

Soldier: Sir, you must stand back now this is...

Protestor: We don't care what this is! Livenstein was settled by us and it belongs to us. No aliens should corrupt our homeworld with their presence.

Soldier: Sir I-...

*As the soldier began to speak he was hit in the head by a brick. Luckily his combat helmet protected him but now the hoards of protestors began to press on the military barricades surrounding the embassy corridor*

Solider: d*** it! Tear gas lets go! disperse this mod!

*Tear gas flew out and neo-nationalists scattered left and right. Most now began to riot, setting fire to whatever they could, even flipping a military FAV. Ordenreich police began to engage with anti-riot tactics but the scene from the news cameras was chaotic. After a few seconds of footage the camera cuts out and the news anchor reappears.*

News Anchor: We apologize for the interruption but we have breaking news... Knight Commander Aaron, decorated war hero of the Hildenburen invasion of the Ordenreich was killed by Neo-Nationalist rioters just a few minutes ago. Based off sources we have discovered that he was killed because of his marriage to a Heraklean woman. Maria Salona, 22, came to Livenstein to learn about Ordenreich culture. According to sources, she is highly interested and intrigued with other alien cultures. She met the Knight Commander during a party and they were wed a year and a half later. Rioters attempted to take her from her home in the officer quarters just outside New Kongisburg military spaceport. Police reports said that the rioters were boasting how they were going to rape her, kill her, then quote, "string her up in front of barbarians at the Heraklean embassy." Police managed to get to her on time and she is now being escorted by police to the Heraklean embassy for her safety. Maria is now five months pregnant with the late Knight Commander's child. We advise all offworlders to please remain in their homes and lock the doors. If you do not feel safe call local law enforcement who will send a trooper to collect you and your family and bring you to a secure location. We will have more news as more stories develop...

To: Heraklean Government
From: Hochmeister Micah von Guelder, Hierarchy of the Ordenreich

We thank you for the aid but we can handle ourselves and the use of foreign military troops or intelligence agencies has a great possibility of making things worse. One thing I should keep you appraised of is that workers left their positions at FOAB facotires to join the Citizen's Guard. We can no longer produce FOABs until those factories start running and we have reliable ways of transferring them to our fleets. As such the Artillery fleets currently supporting your attack on Praos are down to their last salvo with no way of replenishing them. We have kept this fact down low so you can use the FOAB threat for your fleets but don't count on large amounts of support from them.

Sincerely,
Hochmeister Micah von Guelder

OOC: No real time to respond at the moment, but will comment on the OOC. The way you phrased their position seemed to be they wanted to move to a more passive role by supporting anti-piracy operations than actively engaging. My bad if that was a misunderstanding.

Jenova informs her Ordenreich ambassador that should the Ordenreich fear for any more of its people (like Commander Aaron) and wish to offer them an option, that Burnination will take them in for as long as they desire shelter.

“Sit-rep?” Commodore Simona asked the Command Security Officer.

“Rioters have yet to breach the perimeter around the Diplomatic Quarter. We've taken the opportunity to further strengthen our defensive positions. All security personnel are still utilizing non-lethal rounds and LRADs have been positioned on the walls of the site. Snipers are monitoring the crowd from the roof behind armored walls.”

“What about Cadet Salona?”

“ETA 20 minutes. They're bringing her by air.”

“Any indication of the rioters being armed more heavily than small arms?”

“Not yet. But if they have overrun military vehicles, it's likely they will have them soon.”

“Do you have a recommended red line?”

“10 meters, sir, but I recommend we ask for guidance on before that point if the rioters breach the Diplomatic Quarter perimeter.”

“Very well. I'll send the Hochmeister a message.”

TO: HOCMEISTER MICAH
FROM: COMMODORE SIMONA

BE ADVISED. HERAKLEAN EMBASSY SECURITY PERSONNEL HAVE BEEN EQUIPPED WITH NON-LETHAL MUNITIONS AND WILL COMMENCE ACTIVE DEFENSE OF THE EMBASSY IF RIOTERS COME WITHIN 10 METERS OF THE OUTER WALL. WE REQUEST GUIDANCE ON HOW YOU WOULD PREFER WE ACT IF RIOTERS BREACH THE PERIMETER AROUND THE DIPLOMATIC QUARTER BUT BEFORE THEY ENTER 10 METERS.

They won't

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*So far the rioters had been unable to breach the Ordenreich line. A combination of tear gas and use of military power armor has kept the rioters scattered and unorganized though they did not have the manpower initially to do much more than hold the line. As police reinforcements came in and the Hochmeister authorized the insertion of local Ordenreich knights into the city of New Kongisburg the rioters were becoming steadily overwhelmed by the much more disciplined, organized and equipped Ordenreich military. As this was going on the Ordenreich falcon carrying Salona and a number of other Heraklean refugees started approaching the embassy.

Crossbow 5-3: Heraklean Embassy, this is Crossbow 5-3 requesting clearance to land. We have Heraklean refugees looking for asylum in your embassy. Be advised we have wounded on board. One is a near rape victim and another is an actual rape victim. Another has critical injuries and requires medical attention immediately.

At her office, Talent Morris was filling out routine paperwork while leaving OrdenReich newslinks on the holoprojector in the background, occasionally glancing to see the newest developments. One matter that concerned her was the news of a radical portion of the Citizens' Guard, the Neo-Nationalists, a group who like the Black Order apparently believed in isolationism and the expulsion of all aliens.

Damn, she thought. Is this how the Sacaen people repay the people who lent them a hand in their bleakest moments? We brought them into galactic civilization, over the interference of that interloping doctor, and they call us a corrupting influence? We fought alongside them in the Hildenburen War in this very system. We send them aid and formers to help rebuild. What more could they want? They-

Her thoughts were cut off when she noticed a change in scene on the newslink she was watching. It seemed that a group of Neo-Nationalists were approaching the gates of the embassy quarters, soon enough a riot broke out. The scene was nothing less than pure destruction and chaos - in the carnage and fire she could spot an overturned military vehicle. Now, this was a sight that she was more familiar with, a damned drone riot if there ever was one. And, just to make things worse, apparently some decorated Sacaen veteran had been killed for his marriage to a Heraklean national by rioting Neo-Nationalists. This was absolutely obscene - she needed to act to protect the safety of the Centauri on Livenstein, and she needed to do so quickly. Thus, she composed the following warning:

***

TRAVEL WARNING
FROM THE CENTAURI EMBASSY AT LIVENSTEIN

CENTAURI NATIONALS PLANNING TRAVEL TO THE ORDENREICH ARE ADVISED TO CANCEL ALL NON-CRITICAL TRIPS TO ENSURE THEIR SAFETY FROM ONGOING RIOTS AND INSTABILITY. ANY CENTAURI NATIONALS CURRENTLY PRESENT ON CHIRON ARE SUGGESTED TO REMAIN INSIDE IN A SAFE LOCATION, AND CONTACT ORDENREICH LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS TO REQUEST ESCORT TO THE NEAREST CENTAURI EMBASSY OR CONSULATE, WHICH SHALL REMAIN OPEN 24-HOURS A DAY. AT THAT POINT THE GOVERNATE WILL ARRANGE TRANSPORTATION TO ALPHA CENTAURI, FREE OF CHARGE.

“Well, I like his confidence. Doesn't really answer the question.”

“Just use the red line as the limit. Issue warnings at 30 meters.”

“Aye aye, sir.”

* * * * *

“Understood Crossbow 5-3. Corpsmen are standing by to receive refugees.”

The falcon was directed to one of the clear landing pads on the roof. Immediately upon landing, corpsmen moved forward and began unloading the refugees. Cadet Salona refused the first offers of aid.

“I'm fine, dammit. See to them first.”

* * * * *

Lieutenant Jeremy Franco, Provost Marshal Corps, was intently watching the holo in his hotel room to keep up with events in the Ordenreich when he heard a crash outside his room. He grabbed his pistol and cracked open his door.

“You like catering to foreigners you traitor bitch? Huh? Do you?!” Jeremy looked out and saw a man accosting one of the maids. The man raised his hand to strike her and Jeremy immediately moved into action. As the hand came to the high point of its arc, Jeremy grabbed it and twisted it behind the man's back. Jeremy's offhand pressed his pistol against the back of the man's head.

“You should be more polite to the lady.”

“Fuck you dog.”

“Right. We're going for a little walk.” Jeremy forced the man over to the elevator and called the car. Upon entering it, he rode it down to the lobby and force walked the man to the front doors of the hotel before throwing him out in the street. “Get out of here, now.”

“This is Livenstein, not Sparta. My country, not yours.”

“Leave or I will shoot you where you stand.” The man sneered, then his face shifted to a cruel smile.

“Doesn't matter. I'll be back soon enough.” He turned and started walking up the street. Jeremy looked past the man he had just thrown out to see rioters a handful of blocks away. He turned back inside and walked to the front desk. “You need to lock down this hotel and call emergency services.” The hotel employees stood frozen for a moment. “Now!”

*The Hochmeister knew his message to the Herakleans was vague but he had a million other messages from other people. Messages asking for statuses of foreign diplomats, request for orders from military higher ups, and even a message from the leaders of the Citizen's Guard assuring the Hochmeister that the Citizen's Guard does not support nor condone what the Neo-Nationalists are doing. The Hochmeister wanted to get talks underway with the Guard as their nonviolent protest was putting the Ordenreich in a vulnerable state but he needed to crush these Neo-Nationalists. But how to do it without just outright shooting civilians in the street? He was just typing out a letter assuring yet another ambassador that the embassy quarter was secure when the Head Scribe walked in. The Head Scribe was the master of the Order Library which contained the accumulated knowledge of everything from military secrets to the complete history of the Ordenreich's foundation and arrival on Livenstein.

Head Scribe: My Hochmeister, I trust you are well?

Micah: What does it look like? Most of the galaxy thinks the Ordenreich is falling apart and are having a meltdown about it. I've been playing clean up with them for the better part of 14 hours now!

Head Scribe: That is what I wanted to see you about my Hochmeister we may have a solution to the problem of the Neo-Nationalists.

Micah: Finally! An advisor who actually gives me solutions instead of more problems. What is it?

Head Scribe: Some scribes down in R&D were developing a new type of grenade specifically designed for anti-personal using sonic technology. You are familiar with this yes?

Micah: Yeah Project: Banshee. What does that have to do with this?

Head Scribe: One of the scribes has said that they can turn down the frequency of the sonics for the grenade to make it a non-lethal weapon for incapacitation. The grenades will effectively knock out a wide range of people.

Micah: Is it dangerous?

Head Scribe: There may be some side effects like blown eardrums but largely no it should be quite harmless.

Micah: And our troops?

Head Scribe: Their combat helmets will be able to block out the sonic frequencies. They will be completely unaffected.

Micah: Fine, you have my approval, how soon can these grenades be ready?

Head Scribe: Now actually. I took the liberty of having them be produced. Just needed your permission to use them.

Micah: And thats why your my Head Scribe. Get those grenades on board some falcons and deliver them over the rioters now. I want these riots extinguished so we can get these Citizen's Guard negotiations taken care of. There is a war raging and I don't need a civil war going on during that.

Head Scribe: As you wish my Hochmeister.

(OOC: Just as a warning to you all tomorrow is the last day to do a round of posts before negotiations start on Monday. If you want to RP any kind of posts to influence the negotiations now is the time. Whatever you guys post I will take into account when negotiations start)
