Communists Attack As Tambethra Kumar Called Winner Of Election
October 4415

Democratic forces have been ambushed on the day after the election count, early in the morning. As pirate radio called out that Tambethra Kumar had defeated the incumbent in the unsanctioned poll, 59% to 41% with 49% of voters reportedly polled, much of the north erupted into violence as a state of war was finally declared. Masses of communist conscripts, willing to die for the revolution, poured into rural heartlands with assault weapons. While the professionally trained and well-dug-in democratic forces killed thousands of communist recruits, they were outnumbered by nearly 10-to-1 in much of their positions and the sheer numbers forced them to retreat, though the casualties were extreme for the communists. This came as the communists were polled to lose their majority in the unofficial election, which the Pro-Democratic Forum says supports their cause.

Despite the controversial - and somewhat unaccountable - poll and its meagre turnout, the communists saw it as enough of a threat to finally start violence. The Forum has lost 1/3rd of its territory over a few days span, and the communists have begun to build extensive defences throughout the country out of earth in the hopes of containing and closing in on the rebellion from all possible sides. However, the pro-democratic forces were able to halt the communist advance in the central north, as communist losses became too great and the government's generals saw that they were just wasting troops to advance any further yet. The plan has, however, drawn soldiers from industry and agriculture in the south, but this a price the President is willing to pay for the opportunity to crush resistance.

Regardless of the major losses for the democrats, T. Sagana - leader of the Pro-Democratic Forum - declared T. Kumar the winner and announced that he, and the non-communist members of the unofficial parliament, would be in charge of the self-proclaimed "Free Republic of Vanakalam", which would oppose the "People's Socialist State of Vanakalam" led by the President. Holding 1/5th of the nation's land, but nearly half of its farmland, the Pro-Democrats are in the works of procuring aid internationally, and are hoping to garner support from the growing empire of Medina. While the idea of the militaristic leader of Medina, Azeez, supporting democracy seems odd at first, it is rumoured he sees Sagana as a potential ally. The nation of Vanakalam has plenty of resources and fighting men, although it may have fewer of both by the time one side wins the war.

Sagana Executes Major Offensive Against Communists With Medinese Weapons
October 4416

The leader of the Pro-Democratic Forum, T. Sagana, has personally ordered a major offensive against the communist forces after a year of stalemate. With President Kumar a year into his first, though unofficial term, fighting in the war has came to a standstill and both sides have, up until now, been unwilling to make a major advance. However, using new Medinese weaponry, T. Sagana's forces successfully crept into the camp of the communists under cover of night and began shooting indiscriminately into tents. The communist forces were obliterated in one fell swoop through the usage of devastating explosives and high-powered machine guns which ripped through the sleeping soldiers viciously and without remorse.

Outcry at the dishonourable nature of Sagana's attack has made her lose her 'beacon of third world democracy' visage in much of the world, though she is adamant that 'it was necessary so as to defeat communism'. The Forum has subsequently annihilated communist forces across the north violently, being better-equipped and better-trained than the communists. The vicious and controversial offensive - known as the "month of liberation" by pro-democrats - has caused shock and terror amongst the conscripts who serve under the communists. Thousands of soldiers have deserted, sewing panic amongst the government of President Suhanthra. The communists had been convinced that they were on the verge of winning the war, especially considering their conscripts overwhelmed Sagana's forces previously, but all of that has changed.

In this ever-twisting war, where the losing side seems to miraculously take the advantage when defeat seems imminent, communist leader A. Suhanthra has had to consider her options, as even the tens of thousands of new conscripts she is training may easily be cut down by superior weaponry from Medina. It has been reported to the Times that the communists may soon unveil a new, shocking weapon - as evidenced by the government's edict to state scientists to begin investigating electrical and chemical weaponry. If Suhanthra manages to come out with a weapon able to viciously tare down soldiers, possibly against international law, the tide of this war may change again. Food shortages in the capital continue, furthermore.

Conscripts Pile Up On Battle-lines; Communists Lose Control of Lakshmikati
April 4417

Image
Above: Communist Conscripts Transported North


Countless thousands of communist conscripts have been mowed down by Pro-Democracy fighters on the Vanakalamese battlefront, with the soldiers simply being thrown by their commanders at highly defended positions. The method of numbers-over-tactics has proved a failed strategy for the government, who have lost many of their troops to the feckless behaviour. Assaults on forts filled with battle-hardened and well-trained veterans have held against opponents who outnumber them by dozens of measures, proving a damning indictment of the communist military strategists. Alongside further news that the President's ministries cannot afford to produce high-tech weaponry, it has been increasingly stressed that the communists need to stop wasting men if they want to win this war,

The largest city in the north of Vanakalam, Lakshmikati, has been overrun by Forum soldiers who were aided by locals in killing off the communist leadership in the city, as well as rounding up and executing the communist military commanders in the area. The executed include M. Rubini, the leader of the People's Authorities, who form the remnants of the old police force who fight alongside the People's Army - the new conscripts who receive little training and are dying by the tens of thousands. Obliterated in the north, President Suhanthra has began drastic measures of diverting the nation's entire navy to arrive in nearby Sangora, which is likely the next target of the Democratic Fighters and the Forum's leader T. Sagana.

Despite the many losses for the communists, some good news also appeared for them over the past week. Harvests on farms along the southern Mantara rivers were proven exceptionally successful in this spring, while the opposing northern farms along the River Midu failed to flourish. This means the next batch of conscripts sent to fight will actually finally be better supplied, at least for a time, that their opponents. This provides a short but useful window for the communists to move against beleaguered forces opposing them in the north, with thoughts of lifting the siege placed on the temple south of Lakshmati and north of Sangora known as "the Temple of the Five Lions", which alongside Srishayini temple is one of the six holiest sites in the Vanakalamese native religion. Holding this place could provide a morale boost, even if the government is atheistic.

Communists Routed At Sangora
April 4418

Image
Above: The government's most advanced vessels were forced to retreat.


T. Sagana and T. Kumar's democratic forces have used their Medinese resources once again and handed yet another humiliating defeat to the communists in the second year of fighting in the far-eastern nation. This time, the second largest city in the north - Sangora - was taken from the communist despite having the entire communist fleet docked there to provide artillery support. The tactic failed miserably as the communists quickly abandoned their ships in a rout caused by a rumour spread by Forum agents that the President will kill her own soldier's relatives who support democracy. Now the communists must contest with thousands of rogue soldiers making their ways south to try to gather their families and go undercover. Thousands of civilians have just gone missing, and the problem will only worsen as the country's official government continues to lose battles.

Conscripts from the communist military (the People's Army) are falling en-mass when they try to retake ground, with no real training having been provided. Malnourished and with very low, and yet even still diminishing, hopes of winning the war. The communists are in free-fall, with even their 'well-fed' new brigades only barely holding back the Forum in key areas of the north. Soon, and pretty much immanently even, the government will have the full power of the northern armies at their gates, with metropolis capital Thikkonagama threatened itself. If the communists fail to hold back their enemies in the north, the middle of the country is simply an open plain for the Forum forces to sweep over.

After persistent failure, President Suhanthra has gone into panic-mode according to sources. Having thought she would end the rebellion after her rapid advance a few years ago into the poorly prepared Forum which existed then, Suhanthra must now face the fact that her strategy has utterly failed in the idea of sending wave after wave of communist conscripts at better-trained, well-entrenched enemies. Now, the communists will have to deploy a new super-weapon that they call the "Red Guard", which consists of several hundred of the best, hand-picked soldiers the communist have to offer. This "Red Guard" would be a fearsome force, although they had been wanted to defend the cities. With plenty of conscripts and trenches around her personal position, now Suhanthra has no choice but to put in her strongest warriors.

Red Guard Brutally Effective At Five Lions
October 4418

Image

The Communists are back and fighting in the war in Vanakalam with brutal efficiency as the enclave built around the Five Lions temple was reinforced by sea with hundreds of elite "Red Guard" soldiers. In stark contrast to the mainly conscript-based "People's Army", the Guard has not faltered and lost massively against the Forum forces - in fact quite the opposite is true. The Guard won the first major communist victory since the war's early days, with the Forum's military being forced to halt with only incremental ground covered in its attempt to claim the holiest site on the face of Terra for followers of the native religion. The site honours the five sacred lions of heaven said to have been slain by the demonic forces before the Gods fought them back, the lions still venerated as martyrs to this day by all Vanakalamese people.

The Red Guard was able to hold off the first advance made by T. Sagana's forces through heavy suppression fire which stopped the advance almost immediately. The second attempt to advance was met with mortar shells, with both said tactics being far more accurate than the conscripts's attempts to use the same tactics had been. However, the Red Guard also engaged in their own tactics, of sending undercover soldiers behind enemy lines to cause chaos before quickly retreating into the heavy jungle that surrounds the area. The Forum has tried to conserve their own soldiers, which has led to a total stand-still in the sole communist enclave in the area. After defeats in Sangora and Lakshmikati, President Suhanthra was extremely happy to see her new tactic succeed in finally stopping the advance. More Guards are to be trained and deployed in the coming months.

For the Forum, this is a new crisis in the ever-shifting war that has became increasingly complex and tangled. Support from Dorvik and Luthori in the form of aid has been extremely useful in helping civilians and soldiers recover from the fighting, helping to increase public support of the movement and Tambethra Kumar's presidency. Financial and military aid from the Tambethra family's connections and Medina has also helped the Forum lock down current territories held, though the new Red Guard makes it likely that the war will soon start to drag for the Forum as they finally meet their match. However, T. Sagana is in the works of getting more support from Dorvish Defence Minister Anouk Reding if reports are to be believed, and this may include resources to help defend civilian areas more easily, allowing more troops to be committed to the front lines. Reding's spokesman said that the reports are 'exaggerated', but that 'the Dorvish government was committed to limiting civilian casualties'.

Red Guard Holds Ground; Forum Gains In Other Areas
October 4419

Fighting continues to roar across Vanakalam, with the Red Guard holding its ground up and down the country against advances being made by their enemies the Forum for Democracy and their pro-democratic forces. President Suhanthra, who is believed to be in ill health, has been deploying thousands of her best soldiers - the newly trained and well-equipt Red Guard - all of whom are sworn to the communist cause. These new forces have been so successful that they haven't given up an inch of ground in most of the areas they have been deployed, allowing communist conscripts from the People's Army to stand back and only be used when necessary. The Red Guard is also teaching fellow soldiers like the People's Authorities and the People's Army on their own more advanced tactics.

On the other hand, there have been many success stories from the pro-democracy forces in their push eastward from their north-western, original position. In the villages in the east, they have encountered many sympathetic rural civilians who have helped to oust conscripts and former policemen who have not been reinforced by the Red Guard. The Red Guard remains focused on fending-off the multi-year sieges on several key temples in the north and midlands, although it is also trying to slowly move and position so as to reclaim Sangora with very limited success as of thus far. Casualties from the war have slowed down, but it is clear that tens of thousands have died in the four-year-long conflict. Over a decade since Suhanthra came to power, her government is embattled for its very survival.

Medina Utilises New Air Force to Devastate Red Guard
November 4418

After taking a number of planes and weapons from Temania after its recent invasion, the Medinese Empire has been developing its Air Force rapidly. While it’s still the weakest branch of its military, they’ve been itching to show it off to the world for years, sources say.

Now that Medinese-backed democratic progress in Vanakalam has been brought to a halt by the elite communist Red Guard forces were brought into action by the communist President of Vanakalam, it appears they’ve seen an opportunity to do just that.

In a surprise attack, the Medinese air forces tore through several key communist strongholds, being notably careful to attack only primarily military locations and avoiding civilian casualties, laying waste to key communist defences. This is the first direct intervention from Medina in the entire war, with the powerful empire preferring to provide aid in the forms of weapons and supplies until now.

Why the sudden shift? On the one hand, it seems that Azeez, the Medinese Emperor, may be growing restless — with a potential war sitting on the horizon, he could be hoping to gain a fresh ally as soon as possible. Or perhaps he just wants to stop wasting resources and guarantee victory. Or, more interestingly, some analysts have proposed that he is attempting to secure democratic loyalty — unlike his potential Northern Council enemy, Dorvik, who also supports the democratic forces, Azeez is perhaps seeking to show that Medina is truly dedicated to the cause and more willing to get involved...

Whatever the reasoning, this is a major boon for so-called Free Vanakalam. If the ground forces capitalise on the attack with their own sweeping assault, they may be able to almost secure victory by taking out remaining communist forces in one fell swoop and utilising the confusion to their advantage. If not, all this may have been for nothing...

Communists Left Reeling From Medinese Attack
April 4420

Image
Above: Forum Military Leaders meeting to discuss future plans.


The Communists of Vanakalam have been soundly routed by air attacks led by Free Vanakalamese allies Medina, and even the elite Red Guard has now been forced to retreat from key enclave positions under the cover of darkness. Military leaders in the communists forces gave the order this week to start formal withdrawal from areas that had been so severely affected by the bombing campaign, aware that since the attacks they have lost dozens to new weak points opened up in their defences. The defeats have caused communist moral, even among their elite soldiers, to drop significantly as yet another path to status quo victory is closed off by the brutally effective attacks.

On the eastern seaboard, communists have continued to fall in unimaginable numbers as wave after wave of energized and motivated Forum for Democracy soldiers poured across the battle lines and unto the communists and their defensive structures. The devastation coincides with reports that communist President A. Suhanthra is severely I'll with pneumonia and may require surgery, posing the possibility of the communists losing a figure popular enough to provoke new recruits. Reports are suggesting that the remaining Ted Guard, having retreated from the Five Lions temple, are going to meet the Forum in an open battle in the hopes of causing significant damage. Only time will tell what happens.
