Liberty's Arsenal

Post by Redcoat on Sat Jul 02, 2011 4:32 pm

Sent Per Will of President Antony Lassale for the Republic of Capua;
To Be Recieved in Privacy by Gen. Leon Ribault of the Capuan Armed Forces.
Dated 14 December 1570.
-----
Greetings, my friend.

Given the pressing threats we face from possible Solari aggression from the north, and the remnants of the Royalist and Communist insurgencies in the south, we've approved your request for further resources.

We've decided to open all of the old Kingdom's armouries. They're pretty old; a lot of the materials within are practically Medieval in character, but they'll arm men and they're the best stopgap we have for now. I respectfully suggest that you train your men in the use of the matchlock, because if we're invaded before your New Model Army can get itself in gear, your reserves will be using those.

Speaking of the New Model Army, it's almost complete--industrial complexes in the Capital and surrounding areas have begun production of newer, better muskets and blunderbuss, along with armour and ammunition. Gunpowder remains in ample supply, but more refined recipes are being developed as we speak--see to it that our men are supplied in the most efficient way possible.

Though our tactics against the insurgencies remain effective, our political arms will begin their operations in earnest soon. Your efforts in safeguarding this dream we've had and herding its enemies to the National Razor will not be forgotten. However, there are more pressing matters to discuss.

Though the Solari leadership has made it extraordinarily clear that they do not plan any moves against our Republic, it is my opinion and that of some members of the Directory that an invasion may be an option that the Dictatorship is considering. We must be ready to best all comers. Please prepare fortifications in the North to your satisfaction. The forts must be brought up to speed, appropriate forces stationed, drills conducted, and supplies stored. I leave the technical details of this up to you.

You have the full backing of the Military-Industrial Complex Program. Merely place your orders and the Foundries will work round the clock. Best of luck in your endeavours; please report to my office with all results.

SIGNED,
Antony Lassale
PRESIDENT

To Be Received in Privacy by The Directory.
Dated 19 December 1570.

Greetings, friends and colleagues.

After consultation with Dominic and Peter, it is believed that we have an elegant solution to the Republic's economic and industrial problems--as well as a solution to the military problems posed by lack of equipment.

As reported by Antony's faithful MSI, our friends in Kyokai are currently experiencing civil war. With our foundries pumping out muskets at an unprecedented rate, who's to say we couldn't siphon some of them to Kyokai in order to supply their armies, thus aiding a potentially friendly regime politically. In exchange, the financial resources we gain from this would help with industrial and food supply improvements, further increasing productivity and strengthening the Republican economy. Industrial development would also be stimulated, and the early bugs with new musket designs could be worked out.

We will proceed in detail come the next meeting.

Sent by will of the Regent of War, Kenshi Yutagane
To be received by the President of Capua, Antony Lassale
Dated -- March 12th, 1571
-----

Dear President Lassale,

The Shogunate wishes to extend our thanks over our most recent trade deal. It is a hope that the shipments of Capuan made muskets will aid our soldiers on the field of battle immediately. Perhaps, your new model will serve to change the way war is conducted. The arms and ammunition has been payed in full of course. It is also the Shogun's hope that the capital received through this transaction might serve to aid in the recovery of the Republic - we know of your current condition of course due to your most recent Revolution.

May our bonds forever intertwine, and our relations continue to prove beneficial for both of our great nations.

Signed,
Kenshi Yutagane - 健志-雄太
Regent of War - 戦争の摂政

Their glasses clinked together and twelve shots of scotch were downed simultaneously. Before them was a letter, the Kyokan Regent of War's signature proudly displayed upon it, which represented, to them, a great success. Once their cheering was over, business was tended to immediately.

The Prime Minister, Jacques Neuvo, immediately sent a page to report the news to the National Assembly. The President, Antony Lassale, his smile gleaming, gave instructions to Guy. As the cheer died down a bit, Jaques stood. He could not have been happier.

"It is time!" he said, "Time for us to move into a new era. With the consent of the Assembly and this Directory, it is time to enact the Lepellier Plan!"

And there was much rejoicing.

To Be Received by the Resource Scouting Consortium.
Dated 4 April 1571.

Dear colleagues of the RSC,

With the establishment of your agency as per the Assembly's bill of yesterday, you are to begin operations immediately in the Western sectors. Scout for the best resource areas and recommend those places to my office; we have firms to set up and not much time to set them up in.

You know your orders. Contact my office for information should you require it. The West must be settled and exploited.

"Friends! Capuans! Countrymen!"

It was a fine spring day. Slightly damp from recent rain, for sure, but a fine day nonetheless; a slight breeze counteracted the overhead sun just enough to make the crowd comfortable. And there was a crowd--the speeches by the President or, as in this case, Prime Minister were always well-attended, for they were rare and always told of events or developments most momentous. At Jacques' first three words, the Great Forum fell silent.

"Today, the foundry workers and their families may rejoice, for production, and the resulting wealth for their collectives, will have increased tenfold with our support of our closest and most magnanimous allies in Kyokai with shipments of arms. Indeed, all Capua may rejoice, for our Republic now plays an active, positive role on the world stage. But such grand foreign adventures are the dominion of your President. As has been echoed by the best and brightest of our society since the days of the Rumans, no good deed, properly administered, would go unrewarded. Your celebrations, in fact, might also credit the improvements in your own lives brought about by these developments.

"The budgetary surplus brought on by this arrangement is to be put to work immediately, first and foremost in farming, followed by industry of all kinds. With these tools, we may rebuild the national economy and facilitate our entry into a new era of prosperity for all Dwarven-kind. But there are few problems that one can simply throw gold at. Our Government will not make a habit of ham-fisted solutions to problems. I am pleased to announce the founding of the Great Bank of Capua; its charter is to come into effect in six days' time. Its mission will be the maintenance of a national currency, the Karp, with which all mainstream transactions will be conducted. It will set monetary policy and maintain a balanced, capable economy.

"In addition, banking restructuring measures are to be passed through your National Assembly. Investments by these newly improved banks are intended to bolster the capital resources of Capuan collectives, so that they may engage in business development and growth. Investments are awarded on the basis of competency and the ability to repay one's debts. It is hoped that this new, more sophisticated free market will result in competition between our nation's entrepreneurs, resulting in a higher standard of living for everyone.

"Let the age of the truly free, truly representative market in this Republic begin. You and your fellow citizens have been given a chance; a chance for you to discover the most valuable ways to serve one another. Let our foray into this new territory be fraught with dangers from which we may learn; let us succeed by the sweat on our brows and our endless Dwarven creativity."

Sent Per Will of Prime Minister Jacques Neuvo,
The Government's Agenda for 1571.
To Be Received in Public by The National Assembly of Capua;
To Be Received in Public by The People of Capua.
Dated 1 January 1571.
-----
Friends! Capuans! Countrymen!

In light of the recent budgetary surplus, the Directory has in a special session produced a plan, as requested by this Assembly, for dealing with what are currently the most pressing issues facing the Republic. Chief on our agenda is the issue of food supply; after that, comes the defence situation, economic development, and the expansion of the human services.

[Attached: National Farming Strategy.]

Planting season will begin soon. Attached to this document is the National Farming Strategy, brainchild of Guy Lepellier, my Minister of Economic Development, and multiple engineering collectives. It is planned to increase food production significantly and put an end to threats of famine in the foreseeable future. The system relies on mass irrigation systems and more efficient farming protocols to maximize production, and it is my personal opinion that this investment will guarantee food security for generations to come. Possible economic benefits--after all, other countries may not be as fortunate as us and may purchase our surplus--should not be ignored.

[Attached: Mars Directive.]

General Ribault's efforts to improve the Armee Republique and Marine Nationale have not gone unnoticed. This said, however, there are certain other measures that must be undertaken. Fortifications must be constructed to defend our vulnerable West. In addition, the weak Monarchical fleets must be firmly eclipsed by the Republic's power at sea if we are to protect our trading interests.

[Attached: Industrial and Mercantile Ties.]

Any strong nation is strong because of its society, but also its economy. Recent mercantile expansions have resulted in windfall profits for Republican agencies, and we ought to continue the expansion of our mercantile empire if we are to enjoy continued prosperity. This in turn requires the maintenance of our industrial advantage. Enclosed are a variety of strategies for this.

[Attached: National Health Service.]

The lives of the people could be greatly improved if health-care were more easily made available to everyone. Given that medicine collectives have already agreed to the measures suggested by these documents, it seems trivial to set up tax funding for them that they may provide services free of direct charge. However, it is likely that these services will have to await the completion of other more valuable projects.

We should not fail to attend to these matters.

SIGNED,
Jacques Neuvo
PRIME MINISTER

Sent Per Will of President Antony Lassale;
To Be Recieved by Admiral Maximillian of the Capuan Armed Forces.
Dated 28 March 1571.

Greetings, friend.

We have acquired several items of use to your activities at the Kuat Shipyards. Most of them are books or other documents which you'll find in the parcel this letter was attached to; but attached to the back of this letter you should find a contract mentioning a particular Elf by the name of Reelior. He will be very useful to you.

This package has been secured from the Isles which, in a recent deal, have decided to relinquish to us a great deal of shipbuilding expertise. The Marine Nationale could use this knowledge, I am sure. Consider it a gift from this Presidency. Be sure to treat our pointy-eared friend as if he were royalty. He's here for a few months. Make him speak as much as possible.

SIGNED,
Antony Lassale
