The Surrender of Solaris [ATTN: Desert, Red, Lyon, Maik, Werl]

Post by Kamikaze_X on Wed Aug 17, 2011 10:56 pm

In response to the recent developments in the war, Solari officials finally found themselves face to face with their inevitable fate. The war could not continue any longer, for it would mean the doom of their civilization, and the death of countless lives. Luxuria Urbs had been besieged and taken by the Holy Empire, a long with much land to their immediate west. To the south, Porta Urbs had been assaulted successfully by the Republic for Capua, resulting in the city being subjugated alongside the lands just outside the Solar Mountains. The Capital was the last foreseeable stop on the enemy's path, nestled within the very mountain range that lay just beyond their area of influence.

Losing the Capital was defeat in and of itself. It was no use anymore, the soldiers that remained were ragged and worn, their officers few and unwilling to lead anymore. The once proud demeanor that prompted the war in the first place vanished unto a solemn gloom that now enveloped the Last City. Not even the Elite General could save them from the doom that awaited them beyond the mountain's edge. It was time to surrender, with or without the graces from their Lord.

A single letter was sent to the leaders of the belligerent nations directly by the Elite General himself, only after being forced and persuaded by his officials who pleaded with him to end everything with some shred of dignity. By the end, he agreed.


..........................


Sent per will of Darko DeLuca, Elite General of Solaris
To be received by [insert leader's name here]
Dated: November 21st, 1571

It is with the utmost humility, and the dignity of my position, that I hereby surrender my army and land to you. The war has tolled many lives for both of us, and it is within my own interests, and I'm sure yours, for this bloody conflict to end once and for all. I will lay down arms as long as my citizens and surrendered soldiers are cared for as Prisoners of War should be.

May we meet in Sperrare Impero for concessions to be had. I believe a treaty should be made for a more formal end to all of this.

To a hopeful future,

Darko DeLuca
Elite General, New Solaris

OOC: For the record, I'm awaiting some sort of post from Werl regarding Alba's victory before I post here. Once I've seen that, or once someone else posts here, I'll make my move.

Sent Per Will of President Antony Lassale of the Republic of Capua;
To Be Received by Elite General Darko DeLuca of Solaris.
Dated 1 December 1571.
---------
Dear Elite General,

The Republic is most pleased to hear of the Dictatorship's reconsideration of its position and applauds the Solari intention to end hostilities. As the Republic shares the view that the casualties, in terms of lives and materiel, generated by this conflict are unnecessary, let us agree on the terms of the treaty.

The Republic's demands are as follows.

-The Republic and Dictatorship agree to cease all immediate hostilities. Republican Army units will be allowed to conduct operations in the newly occupied territories (as indicated below) as appropriate.

-Lands shall be ceded to the Republic, to form full Republican provinces at the Republic's pleasure, under full Republican sovereignty, corresponding to the map attached to this document, where blue represents the lands gained by the Republic through this deal.

-Solarians living in the occupied territories become Republican nationals immediately.

-The stationing of troops in the Solar Mountains by Solaris is strictly prohibited, except as law and order concerns may necessitate this action.

-The Republic does not wish to see poverty enforced on the people of Solaris. A free trade agreement and humanitarian aid regime, to ensure that the Solari people are provided for and enjoy economic prosperity, is in the mutual interests of both parties.

-The Republic pledges to work for Alban, Archipelago, and Imperial acceptance of similar peace deals, provided the Dictatorship, and specifically the Elite General, can prove to the Republic's satisfaction that it intends to pose no threat to the Holy Empire, or the Toskhat as a species.

Please inform us of your decision as soon as possible. Republican units have been ordered to cease fire unless fired upon.

SIGNED,
Antony Lassale
PRESIDENT OF CAPUA

Esteemed General DeLuca,

We are glad to hear of your finally seeing sense and not continuing to struggle against the mighty powers besetting you. In order for the Erynnen blockade on your ports to be lifted, you must meet certain of our terms. Firstly, you must send materials enough to build one ship to us each month. Said materials are to be spoken for by the Erynnen ambassador, and none other. Secondly, you must provide coastal land for Erynnen colonization and farming, and servants to tend the farms. You must relinquish all claims to these lands, or we cannot agree to terms. Lastly, Erynnen requires a tribute of twenty thousand gold pieces monthly, for the upkeep and expansion of our navy.

I trust that you will be sensible and agree, to prevent further bloodshed or destruction of your shipping.

Cordially,
Admiral Theron Raven

on behalf of High Captain Ciltesse

General,

The Isles have received word of your surrender, and are gratified to hear that bloodshed between our peoples will no longer be necessary. Send a messenger back, and I will speak with you personally at your earliest convenience, to ensure that such bloodshed does not come between our peoples again, and to work out a set of terms that is mutually beneficial.

My regards to you.

Sent per will of Darko DeLuca, Elite General of Solaris
To be received by President Antony Lassale of the Republic of Capua
Dated: December 7th, 1571

Dear President Lassale,

It is with a humble heart that I accept your terms completely. With this, I sincerely hope that all hostilities between our peoples will end. You may indeed annex the lands south of the Solar Mountains into the Republic, as long as the people who originally inhabited the cities may remain there in good health - just as demanded. Also, I shall move any troops away from the Solar Mountains and into Sperrare Impero to strictly defend the homeland and nothing more.

As for the free trade agreement, I couldn't ask for more. Allow my representative to come to you for the terms to be set down formally. The place and time may be of both of our conveniences. I look forward to a more friendly relationship between our two people.

With the kindest regards,

Darko DeLuca
Elite General, New Solaris

Dear Admiral Raven,

It is with the utmost respect that I must decline your conditions set forth for my surrender. I am sure you know that all diplomatic agreements should be made between proper representatives in government - meaning myself and the Erynnen High Captain. Though I shall surrender informally to you and cease any and all attacks upon your fleets, I shall not agree to any of the terms set forth due to their rather heavy demands.

In the best regards,

Darko DeLuca
Elite General of New Solaris

Dated: December 7th, 1571

Dear High Captain,

It is with great honor that I send back this letter to you in hopes that a long-lasting peace may be achieved between us after all of this bloodshed. It is only a shame that this did not happen sooner. Please, let us meet for a formal Peace Treaty in Sperrare Impero at your convenience. For now, the Solari guns shall be silent.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Darko DeLuca

Dear Elite General,

The Republic is most pleased by your acceptance of our terms and has heard of your acceptance of the Archipelago's through our diplomatic channels. We are satisfied with the situation that exists between our nations, and will endeavour to ensure that the Empire deals with the Dictatorship similarly.

May the relations between our countries normalize quickly. The first shipments of humanitarian aid will arrive shortly, through the routes over the Solar Mountains secured by the Republican Army.

SIGNED,
Antony Lassale
PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CAPUA

SECRET COMMUNICATION! -- UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS IS PUNISHABLE!
Sent Per Will of Operative 114 MSI
To Be Received by Operative 122 MSI
Dated 5 December 1571.

Dear Thomas,

Attached to this letter is a transcription of a most incriminating letter of 2 December, sent by one of the admirals serving the Erynnen navy participating in the recent conflict. It is quite apparent that there are ulterior motives present in the Archipelago's proceedings; perhaps they are even less stable than we realized.

Recommend referral to Presidency immediately.

Post by Maikuolan on Thu Sep 01, 2011 3:58 am

OOC: Assume this reply came earlier than when I'm actually posting it. Didn't get a chance to post earlier. But has been planned for a while. Plus, haven't seen Werl make his final move, and I'm not sure what Erynnen will be citing, thus, only Capua & HE's interests are marked by my map.

- - -

To the office of Darko DeLuca,

Firstly, I must implore that your decision to surrender is most wise - Such unnecessary bloodshed would surely have continued unceasingly had you decided otherwise.

Unnecessary bloodshed is not within my or my people's interests, and I do not intend to prolong this war for longer than is necessary. Assuredly, it is within your interests to end this conflict to end once and for all, but whether or not it is within my own interests - whether prolonging this war is necessary, I am as of yet to determine.

The Holy Empire is vigilant to the end, and when the Holy Empire begins something, that something is seen through to the end - When we enter a conflict, it is for a reason or goal, and only under the grasp of defeat, devoidment of reason or accomplishment of the goal do we exit.

What this particular war ultimately boils down to is that the Holy Empire, and I, personally, have an amassment of evidence which proves that Solaris and its people have long held ill intent towards the people's of the Holy Empire and that you and your government had planned to invade the Holy Empire and commit genocide against its peoples. This is an unforgivable threat to which the Holy Empire had no choice but to meet, thus the reason and motivation for a preemptive invasion of Solaris.

I would seek to meet with you and your government regarding consessions; However, under these reasons for war, how can I guarantee the safety of either myself or any diplomats that I should send? How can I guarantee that your suggestion to meet in Sperrare Impero is not simply a ploy to see my forces lower their guard, to grant you opportunity to strike at our officials and plan a counter-attack?

Until proven otherwise, I will consider your communication an act of goodwill, and thus, should there be no provocation of my forces by yours, will enact and uphold an indefinite ceasefire. As condition to this ceasefire, will will not press our advance further. However, should this ceasefire be broken for any reason by your forces, we will return to state of active conflict and I will give the order to march on your capital.

Hopefully, once I can trust that your seeking concession is not a form of trickery, and once I can trust that Solaris, it's government and people no longer seek to harm the Holy Empire, we may meet to discuss the future of our two peoples.

Additionally, the Holy Empire does hereby lay claim to all territories currently under its occupation - This is not currently up for negotiation. These territories have been outlined in the attached document.

Except for in the utmost of extreme circumstances, the Holy Empire does not engage in imprisonment or subjugation. Non-combatants and former Solaris citizens in occupied territories will be treated the same as our own citizens, and granted both citizenship and protection upon denouncement of any former loyalties and on pledging absolute loyalty to the Holy Empire and imperial hierarchy. However, failure to denounce former loyalties or failure to pledge loyalty to the Holy Empire will result in either deportation or execution, pending circumstances. After a short period of time, prisoners of war will be given the same liberties and treated in the same manner. Children will be protected. All peoples living in occupied territories will be expected to adhere to our laws, failure of which will result in the same as should any of our own peoples fail to adhere to our laws - Execution.

I trust that you both recognise my earnesty in this letter and understand that under my predecessor's rule, or under the rule of any other leadership candidate in the Holy Empire, that the results of this war would be far less lenient.

I hope to hear from you again in the future.

Sincerely,
Dominante Trévutó Dâutên Kšetai Rakhát.
