Prince Tarun Sweeps Through South; Kayal Proves Challenging
September 4437

The veteran prince of Vatavana, Prince Tarun, has swept through the southern half of Vanakalam and defeated the combined armies of four loyalist princes. The armies of the loyalist Rajavanshi and Anantis were obliterated at the Battle of Arvinda in Vadekar, where many thousands of the imperial troops - the largest single army of the entire loyalist armed forces - was routed by a combination of heavy guerrilla tactics and viciously effective suppression fire from machine guns and sniper-armed soldiers stations in the hills. The 70-year-old Tarun stationed all of his troops into the dense forest, and waited for the perfect opportunity to rain down fire onto the enemy. The troops of the loyalists were caught so off guard that many didn't even try to fire back, and simply ran wildly into the forest. Many were captured in the dense foliage, with a lack of preparedness costing them dearly.

Tarun's success with guerrilla tactics has inspired more rebellions against the royals across the nation. Only the central belt remains true to the Emperor, Raghu III of Kayal, and that is mainly down to the fear instilled in their hearts by the genocidal Empress Lakshmi of Bhapor. The Bhapori princess has ripped through the rebels in the countryside around the central belt through the usage of gassing and burning her opponents with chemical attacks and incendiary weaponry respectively. In Kayal, however, the seat of the Emperor himself, the fighting has been fierce. Violence and gunfire have resounded around the small island, which had yet to suffer the brunt of the Vanakalamese offensive. The Emperor's troops have thrown themselves at the invasion force, but many have fallen in the process. It seems that Kayal may yet be the toughest fight for the Vanakalamese forces since their civil war.

Emperor Raghu Captured As Kayal Falls
October 4438

Emperor Raghu III has been captured by Vanakalamese forces after the fall of his palace on his home territory, the island of Kayal. Kayal proved a challenge for the Vanakalamese to assault due to the fact Raghu had recalled all of his most fierce and experienced troops to protect himself. However, he and his court were eventually obtained after Vanakalamese troops worked with rebels on the island to gain a terrain advantage over a loyalist army that, due to Raghu's recall, was mostly unfamiliar with the island itself. The lack of support from the populous, even in his home island, eventually doomed the Emperor. He was captured in the early hours of this morning. Under the law of the Confederated League of Vascania, he will stand trial in Thikkonagama for treason, crimes against the state, complicity in war crimes and mass-murder. He will be executed if he is found guilty, which is extremely likely, and will be tried alongside his brother.

With the Emperor dethroned, his wife Lakshmi has claimed regency over the nation. Empress Lakshmi "the Black" of Bhapor proclaimed herself 'Empress Regnant', an upgrade from her former position of 'Empress Consort'. Lakshmi has gained massive notoriety in the nation for her usage of crucifixion, brutal repression and systematic chemical attacks on her own people. Acknowledging she has lost the love of the people, she now seeks to make them fear her in order to crush the rebellion. Lakshmi's forces have been effective in dealing sizeable blows to the rebel forces, in stark contrast to the success of Prince Tarun in the south and of President T. Sagana's Vanakalamese invasion forces in the north. Rebellions, which have helped the rebel forces gain ground in other areas, would never dare surface in her central belt of the country. She and the defences of the capital are the last hopes for the loyalist cause.

Capital Of Kalkalistan Falls
April 4439

Kamalata, the largest city in the nation of Kalkalistan and the national capital, has surrendered to the combined forces of Prince Tarun of Vatavana and the Sagana-loyal military of Vanakalam. The city was the largest remaining physical obstacle to the official unification of the continent under the Confederated League of Vascania due to its size and the extent to which its economy serves as a centrepiece of a potential peacetime Kalkalistan. The giant, economically booming and potentially vital city of Kamalata officially surrendered after light skirmishing on the outside of the city in the suburbs. The massive population of the city retreated to the metropolitan centre, but used the evacuation to also protest the mayor of the city into surrender. In the late afternoon, moving into the evening, the city council ordered the city's police to arrest its frightened military garrison and pledge allegiance to the CLV.

The CLV flag flew over city hall soon after, to much applause. With all but the few central regions of the country under the rebel-invasion coalition's control, it seems all but certain at this point that the nation will soon be officially and entirely christened into its alliance with Vanakalam. The nation will then be involved in the largest general election in Terran history, which will choose a President, VP, united legislature, two devolved lower legislatures and two-governor generals, alongside governors and local governments with devolved powers. Thousands of officials will be elected, and massive ramifications will come from the results for Vascania, Dovani and the world as a new major power is born.

The last obstacle for unification is the Empress Lakshmi, self-proclaimed Empress Regent - more commonly referred to as "Her Dark Majesty, the Black Empress" by an afraid populous. Her attacks on her people have continued at a frightening pace and even accelerated. One army battalion invading from the south under the command of an Ananti prince was bombarded with a chemical that attacks the brain and causes subjects to become violent, restless and ultimately dead. The Empress, who now wears black at all times and surrounds herself with loyalist religious figureheads, has declared it the decreed will of the gods that she exterminate all those who refuse to bow to their will. The Empress' sanity was damaged further by recent leaked new that she is pregnant with twins who have been monitored to be 'in a position not forthcoming to easy childbirth' within her womb.

Sagana: Lakshmi Has Fled, The War Is Over
October 4441

The bitter decade-long conflict that swallowed all of Vascania whole has now ended, according to official reports from the President herself, T. Sagana. Sagana told the nation via broadcast to all regions that the Black Empress Lakshmi had gone into hiding or left the country, and that all of her troops had done the same. Her dwindling resources, support and fighters - Sagana says - left her no choice but to take 'the coward's way out and run'. With the sudden disappearance of her forces, the war is over, and peace comes again to the continent of Vascania. The sudden power vacuum will soon be filled by elections, in which the nation of Kalkalistan will be formally absorbed into the Confederated League of Vascania and pick its first Governor-General and governors in each principality.

It is likely many princes will find themselves at the end of a ballot box contest, rather than an armed struggle now the war is over. Meanwhile, the true horrors of Empress Lakshmi's regime in the centre of the country, centred around her homeland of Bhapor, are only now fully being seen. While she was known to be ruthless, the burnt bodies mounted on crosses and the green-tinted ponds of the countryside are utterly terrible. Burnt bodies not only are displayed in the desolate countryside but also in piles throughout a forest of now-charcoal trees. Words in Bhapori are scrawled across the ruins of villages that are now little more than ash and stone, warning people of the wrath of "the Black Empress". Starved and homeless villagers beg for food on the roadside.

Where the tyrant of Bhapor has gone remains a mystery. Some say she has retreated with her loyal followers into the mountains, some say she's smuggled herself abroad somehow - to where is unknown, some say Rapa Pile perhaps. Wherever she's gone, her dynasty is in ruins and she will be hunted for the rest of her days. Now, however, is a time for democracy to be born in a country that has lacked it for all of its history. Sagana has ruled herself out of running again due to being 76 now, and is devoting more time to her grandchildren, of whom she now has 5. With her former VP Tambethra Dyshini heading the GA, her successor seems unclear at this stage.
