De Camino et Virtus Bellorum

Post by Flagmauth on Mon May 26, 2014 3:25 pm




Europe is breaking apart.

Greece is aflame with rebellion. The oppression suffered at the hands of the Ottoman Turks has finally driven the Greeks past their breaking point. The rebellion, under its leader Octavion of Sparta, has garnered much support in the more democratically-inclined France, the host of the Revolution that swept Europe a mere decade ago, threatening to topple nearly every monarchy on the Continent. The Republic remains the only real government of its kind outside the United States, and is ringed by totalitarian or traditionalist regimes who would do anything to see its downfall.

The royal family of the Southern Isles, the sole independent Greek city-states and the last remnants of the Byzantine Empire, have been the primary financiers of the revolution. With their recent royal marriage into the court of Arendelle, the Norwegian splinter-kingdom is beginning to look for ways to aid them. Queen Anna I, however, remains unconvinced. Octavion and his second-in-command Anastasia, leader of the Athenian rebel movement, have embarked via airship to Arendelle to meet the newly-crowned Queen and ask for her help.

But Arendelle and Greece are far from the only countries caught up in Europe's diplomatic web of alliances and interests. Austria, naturally happy to see anything that weakens their longtime rivals in Turkey, has ensured that overland trade into Greece continues uninterrupted. Prussia, arguably the most powerful German state militarily, harbors a huge resentment for her enemy Austria and as such opposes the Greek rebellion. The city-state of Corona, whose independence is owed entirely to Prussia, is therefore put in the same position. Britain, while herself a democratic nation, strongly opposes anything France supports on general principle and also is extremely upset at Arendelle for the loss of several important diplomats when the former Arendellan queen (Elsa I, now known as Elsa the Exile internationally) was revealed to possess magic powers and threw her kingdom into a year-long winter.

The abdication of the young Arendellan queen is hardly the only such incident in recent times, however. Rumors spreading through the Greek army suggest the Ottomans have unlocked some ancient power, while a massive increase in pirate activity in the wake of the destruction of Tripoli has led to increasingly bizarre reports of ghostly ships and airships attacking merchant shipping brazenly in the light of day. The foundations of Europe are shaking, and if it goes, the world is sure to follow..

Outside the lands of Arendelle, a hooded figure with a bow on his back looks at Arendelle

"Things are starting" He says to himself

Phil is busy making sure the Greek airship he is on is running smoothly and is on the lookout for incoming vessels.

The Exegeiroma was one of the larger ships the Greeks themselves possessed - most of their naval power came from the Southern Isles and most of those ships were in turn protecting Southern Islander shipping from Ottoman interdiction and pirates out of Algiers.

What all that meant was that the Southern Islander/Greek convoy heading out to Arendelle had only a paltry escort, the largest of which was a cruiser. With a hostile Europe potentially confronting them, the group hadn't been able to take the direct route across the continent; Prussia and Corona were in the way, either of which could easily shoot down the whole flotilla and claim any of a number of excuses. Instead, the group had had to pass around the Italian peninsula (Italy was embroiled in a war of what appeared to be unification, which had bogged down into a five-way mess that was going nowhere quite quickly) and across France.

Currently they were heading over the North Sea, arguably the most dangerous part of the voyage since passing over Sicily.

Bjorn entered the city with relative ease. Because of his combination of knowing the city like the back of his hand and the whole city getting prepared for the arrival of the ambassadors, the guards didn't really pay enough attention. Once he was inside he got a quiet place to work on his gear. When he finished he flicked on his hood and walked to the docks to get a look at the ambassadors

Phil receives an order from the captain telling him to check on their special guests, Octavian and Anastasia of Sparta.

"Are we there yet?" Octavion asked, impatient.

"What do you think?" Anastasia asked as she continued reading a book on battle strategies.

No one bothered to answer because the ship started rocking as if it was hit

In the bride they see a sight no sailer wants to see. A airship as bigs as there own was coming out of the clouds and the more experience sailers on the ship recognized it as the Queen Anna's Revenge

The Queen Anna's revenge continued its attack damaging most if not all of the propellers on this ship and most of the hull armor

The South Islander ships moved to engage the pirate vessel, spreading out to direct fire at it from multiple directions.

The Queen Anna's revenge pulled away to get a good shot in at the South Islander ships. Once its was in position the QAR opened fire

The South Islander's closest ship, a skiff, took a brutal shot that blew off its bow. The airship listed violently astern with the loss of balance. Other South Islander ships took more hits, knocking off armor plating and damaging weapons. Curiously, the Queen Anne's Revenge wasn't taking much damage from the barrage of fire coming in at it.

The South Islander ships went down one after the other, leaving the Exegeiroma unprotected against the heavily-armed pirates.

The QAR didn't let them go very far, firing at the ships propulsion systems to slow it to a hult

Shots from the Revenge hurtle through the air at the Greek ship. Most sail harmlessly by as the Exegeiroma maneuvers deftly out of the way, but a few punch hard into the engine spall, drawing clouds of smoke and a jet of steam as the engine becomes labored.

The Greek ship's portside engine shuts down completely as steam pours from gashes in the hull. Down to half power, the ship is an easy target if the Revenge wanted to board...
