Jingdao, the benevolent empire
Chibi announces: Today the Chidao Emperor published his ratification of the treaty with the United Batavian States. As a result, the city of Tianhoucheng shall soon revert back to its Batavian name: 's-Koningenwaarde. Zeeburg and the Regent Isles were also transferred. This was an act of benevolence, in return the Jingdaoese Empire only asked that the territories would not be used by the Shirerithian Republic and that the heritage of Queen Sisera was respected. In a years time the Jingdaoese Empire shall retreat its last garrison from Batavian soil, but already our focus is not on Jingdaoese interests, but in helping this Micran phoenix rise from its ashes.

How different does the Shirerithian government act! They have taken the Jingdaoese Batavian treaty as an example, but perverted it. The Shirekeep Republic wishes to appoint Shirerithian judges in Batavia with a vaguely defined jurisdiction, they also refuse to commit to the transfer of Batavian lands to Batavia. "Oh, we'll have a vote on it in a year or so!" they claim. And if they refuse to live under the Shirerithian yoke, they will have to cede Transbatavia!

It is not much different in Floria. Here the Jingdaoese Empire and the Florian Republic are able to negotiate a deal which is beneficial to both nations. the Jingdaoese Empire gained a corridor which connected a province to the mainland. In return Jingdao gave Floria the island group of Nandao. Shireroth then? It bullies Floria, threatening to veto everything it does, from constitutional changes to industrialization. Only because Shireroth can do this according to treaties it forced on the Florians! How childish!

There is only one empire on Micras that has its focus on the common good, and that is the empire that is led by our glorious Heavenly Light!

    Mevwan Foreign Policy [OOC]

    Postby Alicorn » Sun May 22, 2011 6:21 am

    My policy on other players creating and using one-off Mevwani characters is this:

    - Help yourself to as many throwaway humans as you need, as long as it wouldn't have noticeable demographic effects on my population.

    - The Zaee are mine, and if you want any, you have to clear it with me.

    My policy on hijacking charcters I have created is:

    - You can cause Iriwande the Self-Appointed Minister of International Participation-in-Things (and just him, and later his replacement when he dies) to say innocuous things to move along a conversation which I have already had him start participating in.

    - If you want to initiate, not just continue, a conversation with the Mevwan government(s) and write both sides of it for a while instead of waiting for my reply, you need to be talking to an aide you invent for the purpose, not any character I have named; if you want a character I have named to talk then you have to actually write dialogue with me. Iriwande has unnamed human aides on his staff to keep in touch with the Avewe and staff on his behalf, so the "the Zaee are mine" policy continues to apply - use one of those unnamed aides for this purpose.

    - And don't be having conversations with Mevwan residents, however throwaway those residents, that are meant to have major effects on my statelet without my say-so. (For instance, do not invent a triple-type psion, because those are hella rare and would have an effect I'd have to deal with; do not hand them major technological insights they would be disposed to take home; do not use up the very limited supply of computers and AI chassis on projects of your own; etc.)

    My citizens are entitled to the control of their Mevwani characters (human and Zaee alike) and may create their own policies on the matter.

    The policy on the use of my characters is the normal one within the Archipelago, but if I disappear for a week or more you may take total control of the character and I will consider myself to not have much recourse to change their actions when I get back except by asking politely. If you make my characters act out of character I will be very upset with you and may change this policy.

    Incidental use of my characters and other resources (mentioning them, having a character of yours pass through a place I own and interact briefly with NPC residents, having a character of mine make brief in-character statements, having one of your characters know someone from one of my places but having this be a minor part of your ongoing story) is fine in any case.

    If you would like to use my characters or resources more than incidentally, I would strongly prefer that you either 1) IM* me so that we can work out the details ahead of time or 2) run the finished piece by me before publishing it so that I can correct any inconsistencies or errors. (Preferably both, or at least the latter.)

    If you would like to make a major change to one of my characters (inflicting something traumatic on them, for example) or other resources, I expect to be checked with ahead of time and given the option to veto it, but I may still be interested in such a thing.

    If I disappear from the board, all of my holdings revert to Alicorn and are subject to her rules.

    * My IM of choice is Skype; I am adelene.dawner there.
