Handed to a passing Schuttersbrigade detachment on the common frontier, along with a crate of Stalemate Gin and a Fischer-Preiss No.1.

Springfall 15th, 179 AL
5.III.1661 AN

To the Vryheer, Kanselier and redoubtable Vryholders of the Transbatavian Free State, the Council of Perfecti of the Garden of Kalgachia offers fraternal greetings.

It has come to the attention of the Garden that the population under your administration, after their unfortunate ejection from the ruins previously known as Nackolom city, have nonetheless achieved some measure of consolidation in their material and spiritual circumstances against the odious pressure of the Mango Archon which in recent generations has bloated beyond its natural lair in the River Elwynn watershed to impose itself upon the benighted peoples of the Benacian west. Such resilience and righteous guile from the Transbatavian people in defending their sovereign way of life has propelled them to moral parity with such nations as Kasterburg and Inner Benacia with whom the Garden of Kalgachia already has cordial relations - the time has come, therefore, for the Garden to raise the hand of salutation to Transbatavia itself as the rightful inheritor of those lands beyond Kalgachia's western frontier and a respected neighbour.

The Garden of Kalgachia sympathises with the Vrystaat's desire to restore Greater Batavia to the sovereign dignity that it has historically known and earned, and hopes that in time this can be achieved in a concordant and amicable manner between all the states of Western Benacia.

It is humbly requested that a modest Kalgachi diplomatic mission be permitted passage and entry to the city of Jonkersberghe, for the purposes of establishing more effective communication between our nations. Such emissaries as the Vrystaat may wish to send to Oktavyan would of course be accomodated in reciprocation.

Allow me also to extend my personal apologies in neglecting to address you by your native tongue - there are precious few Batavian speakers in the Kalgachi diplomatic corps and all of them are presently assigned to our mission in Kasterburg. I ask for your forgiveness on the matter.

May your trekking be happy and fruitful.

F.B. Bubbles
Deputy Chief Emissary of the Garden of Kalgachia to the Tumultuous Wastes

*The guards gladly take the bottles of gin, but aren't very sure what to do with the gun.*

:wink:

Is it gun smuggling now? I hope that we won't have to introduce the same preventative measures on the eastern border that we have along the western enclaves of the Jing. :8

"You can have our guns, but never have our *HIC* booze!"

"Merely because we drank it all... *HIC*"

Meanwhile in Oktavyan, Mr. Bubbles is summoned for a 'meeting without coffee' wherein he is gently reminded that the simultaneous gifting of guns and alcohol should only be performed in nations Kalgachia wishes to destabilise - but having eloquently spun the incident as a source of valuable data on future export demand, he avoids outright dismissal.

Upon the advice of the Troglodyti, which has detected increased fluctuations of retroactive continuity emanating from the state previously known as Transbatavia, the Directorate of the Tumultuous Wastes resolves to refrain from further contacts unless they are initiated by the entity now re-classified The Pre-Eminent Government Beyond The Bergburg Frontier, allowing time for the inverted reality field believed to be emanating from Spatially-Autonomous Architectural Entity #1,716 to return to its correct polarity.

Some time later, the sound of chainsaws and falling trees is heard from the Kalgachi border south of Eyndegem. A closer inspection by a patrol of Transbatavian horsemen reveals surveyors setting up theodolites and pacing the ground, surrounded by Kalgachi border guards who beckon one of the Transbatavians up to the demarcation line. Walking his horse cautiously up to the line, He is handed another missive.

Summerise 27th, 183 AL

To whom it may concern,

Be pleased to convey to your sovereign government that the Garden of Kalgachia, saddened as it is by the partition of the greater Batavian nation, is resolved to unite you with your brothers in Kasterburg by means of rail transport (please see attached map). Such assistance in equipment, labour or expertise as you may require to link your own transport infrastructure to this point will be forthcoming upon request.

With Proximate Regard,
F.B. Bubbles
Chief Emissary of the Garden

*The soldiers of the Weermacht are taken by surprise by the offer.*

"Send this to the governor, Gert!" shouted the captain.

"Honourable gentleman, we would love to see this rail network expand, but we will have to await green light from the administration in 's Koningenwaarde."

"Of course," says the official on the Kalgachi side. "The railway will take a while to build at any rate... this is Tee-al country."
