National Information - The Kingdom of Otun
Name of Nation: The Kingdom of Otun
Primary Information
Date of Founding: February 9th 834 CE
Flag: (still being worked on)
Motto:
Ashalin (very simplified): “Isulkan ji ajarba inyano ji ayilera.”
Latin: “Unitas virium debilitas divisio.”
English: “Unity is Strength, Division is Weakness.”
Capital:
Unlike most nations in the world today the Kingdom of Otun has three governmental capitols, and two military capitols. This is due to the fact that the two majority peoples of the nation; the Ashalin (of the Ashlin Kindgom) and the Ansarii (of the Ansar Republic) did not conquer each other. In the exact opposite of what was considered normal for the time the two nations settled into a decades long armistice with increasing normalization of contact after expanding inward from the west (Ansarii) and east (Ashalin) and finding they could not expand further in that direction. As such, the cr

Western Regional League Charter
Western Regional League
Introduction
The Western Regional League (WRL) was founded during the Second Ancerius Galactic war as a means of uniting the smaller western nations into a political bloc that would have the power to forge its own policy independent of the international strife that seemed to be consuming the entirety of the northern, southern and eastern quadrants of the galaxy. The primary objective of the WRL is to ensure that all member nations have fair and equal representation locally and abroad. To this end the WRL is a potent political assembly that by the factor of power in numbers, the Western regions of the galaxy are kept free of unwanted incursion, foreign exploitation, and the ravages of unchecked imperialism. Additionally, the existence of the WRL brings law to a formerly lawless region of the galaxy and with that greater prosperity for its membership.
Membership Requirements

After-Action Report
Location & Event: The entire border of the Vaanitas Supremacy
Introduction
In the middle of October, after two first contact attempts by the Western Regional League just a little over two months ago our navy began its first tactical action against the nation calling itself the Vaanitas Supremacy. Based on reports sent back by the Three Domains Alliance and the Divine Davian Empire the Supremacy seems to have a militaristic mindset that appears to be a throwback to an earlier age. In statements made by their representative, Admiral Miria Kavaar it has become clear that the Supremacy’s culture is based on a strong leading the weak sort of arrangement where one rises to a higher position by the virtue of being strong enough to take the position. This rise to power is exactly opposite of

Official Government Announcement
On 9:00 am July 7th 1942, Mansa Gerasim Mašin has announced a formal declaration of war against the Cacean Alliance. This declaration is backed by both the senate and the Ashalin military as the only recourse to a growing number of grievances against the Government and the people of the Cacean Alliance whom in several high profile incidents have put in jeopardy the safety of ocean going traffic in the western sea. Even the peaceful island nation of Irju has not escaped the harassment of the belligerent Cacean navy. To this end I the rightful heir to the throne Mansa Gerasim Mašin call upon every able-bodied Ashalin citizen, and every keen mind to contribute to the war effort, either by enlisting, helping material conservation, working in a supporting factory or by volunteering to join civil patrol units…

Gallentyne  [Gt]
-Atomic Number: 124
-Atomic Mass: 312
-Found in sedimentary deposits on Tiegart III

Gallentyne is a non-Newtonian material that in its native state resembles an ultra-dense hyper-hydrocarbon liquid that is somewhat translucent and green-gold in coloration depending on the purity. It is commonly utilized in self-repairing hull composite but can be catalyzed into a form that reinforces crystalline structures increasing the resistance to shearing forces in structural components. Surprisingly, in the medical field very-low concentrations of Gallentyne can be used to chelate heavy metals from the system. Solutions of Gallentyne also seem to have the added effect of countering osteoporosis and other bone density conditions in a wide variety of patients. While the medical profession is unsure of how this is possible and medical trials are ongoing the standing theory is that somehow amounts of Gallentyne in excess of what is needed seems to bond to the skeletal structure in a similar way that medical grade titanium might. Studies have suggested that if the aforementioned assessment is accurate then Gallentyne might in the future be a miracle cure for injuries involving shattered bones and the associated internal trauma.

Altradium  [Ad]
-Atomic Number: 125
-Atomic Mass: 317
-The name is from the Greek word for Deep, Altum.
-Found in commonly in the ‘cooled’ core of a failed Class F (type g) geometallic planet.

Altradium is utilized most commonly to make windows and portholes on vessels as well as indirect light admission apertures (ILAA). This material is fairly strong and when alloyed with very small amounts of Gallentyne and a few other elements it can be used to make hull panels on starships that allow sensors to scan outwardly through the hull without the need to cut a hole through the hull to allow sensors to see the outside world. In its natural state, Altradium is found with Dataurium in veins of Sedrinite rock at the outer layers of a ‘cool’ planetary core of a type F geometallic planet at the 7th stage of core death (type G) in the Diderot solar system. For note the core of a class F planet even at stage 7 isn’t technically cool. The core of a 7th stage type F has lost most of its internal temperature and with time the core will inevitably cool and solidify leaving a mineral rich but otherwise barren world with no chance of developing any sort of life.


Davinite  [Dvt]
-Atomic Number: 126
-Atomic Mass: 318

Davinite (Known as ToThuum in Davia) is a foreign introduction to this periodic table as the source of Davinite comes from the Divine Davian Empire who presumably mines this crystal from some extra-galactic source. While it does fit in the Table by virtue of its atomic number it is expected that at some point there will be a local element with the same atomic number either created in a lab or discovered in a natural state. Davian red crystals are noted to have an incredibly dense and complex crystalline lattice structure that with some synthetic altering can be made to have almost no melting point, reflect particular wavelengths of light as well as being capable of dispersing heat over its entire surface. These traits make them particularly effective in resisting heat.

Manaetronium  [Mtr]
-Atomic Number: 127
-Atomic Mass: 319
-The name is from Maniae, the Greek deity of Insanity.

Manaetronium and its negative health effects are well documented within the Dominion. Manaetronium in its natural state is already on average 50% more radioactively potent than uranium, however Manaetronium in its natural state has thus far been found to include seven isotopes; Mtr-319, Mtr-318, Mtr-317, Mtr-316, Mtr-315, Mtr-321, Mtr-327 in order of most common to least common.  Manaetronium is one of the few naturally occurring radioactive substances that does not produce any alpha or beta type radioactive particles instead Manaetronium seems to emit gamma, delta and epsilon radioactive effects. When utilized in nuclear fission Manaetronium also releases intense amounts of neutron radiation requiring additional safety features and exceptionally thick reactor shielding.  The health effects of exposure to Manaetronium however represent as a rapid loss of mental capacities as the neurological system of a humanoid is overwhelmed by Epsilon radiation.   For reasons, currently unknown Manaetronium seems to hit the nervous system first causing the three symptoms of exposure within minutes; inability to focus or speak, loss of voluntary muscular control all over the body, mitochondrial necrosis in areas of exposure and soon after the third symptom death results after violent muscular spasms that are strong enough to break bones and cause additional injury to the victim and those attempting to restrain the victim. In minor exposure cases, it has been suggested that amputation of an effected limb early in the necrosis stage can stop or slow the spread of epsilon particles however this treatment only works in 12% of cases and is functionally worthless if exposure occurs on the torso or head. Due to this mining for Manaetronium is done exclusively by remote controlled devices and the decontamination process of the mining equipment often takes twelve or more hours. The only reason Manaetronium is allowed by the state to be mined and enriched in any quantity is because of its comparative efficiency against uranium or plutonium in industrial fission based power plants. Despite the risks of exposure, Manaetronium based fission reactors weigh 60% less than their Plutonium or Uranium fueled competitors, because less overall fuel (and a smaller reaction vessel) is needed to produce the same amount of power, however Manaetronium reactors are bulkier due to the need for additional shielding against fission byproducts and radiation. The most common use for Manaetronium reactors is on industrial space stations where should the worst happen and there is a reactor breach, these systems pose no threat to a planetary ecosystem. It has been rumored that the Dominion has made an enriched version of Manaetronium for use as part of a epsilon radiation weapon of some sort but no evidence of this has ever come to light.


Lyssantium  [Lys]
-Atomic Number: 129
-Atomic Mass: 323
-The name is from the Greek Deity Lyssa who represented Rabies.

Lyssantium is most often encountered as a fibrous crystalline substance (similar in appearance to natural asbestos) that is normally a golden-brown color with a banded luster to it. Technically considered a pseudo metal by the Dominion, this material is highly toxic as it is prone to splintering and shards of Lyssantium can be inhaled or enter the body through the skin. It does not take much exposure for the symptoms of Lyssantium poisoning to occur. Symptoms of poisoning are very similar to those of Rabies from earth, though someone who is suffering Lyssantium poisoning cannot transmit it to others even though they may froth at the mouth and attempt to bite and or inflict other injuries on those around them. At the current time, there is no cure for Lyssantium poisoning if the parts per million in the body reaches a certain point. It is known that an adult human can suffer full effect of poisoning if exposed to roughly 3 micrograms per kilogram of body weight.  The aforementioned calculation means that a 6’ 3” adult male who weighs 68 kilograms will suffer full poisoning if exposed to 0.204 milligrams of pure Lyssantium. The Dominion still mines Lyssantium in small regulated amounts as once it’s crystalline structure is stabilized under extreme pressure and heat it is critical in superconductors, central processing units and in amorphous-LED technology.  It should be noted that Lyssantium mining operations are operated by the government only and have some of the strictest safety regulations known due to in the inherent hazards of the material being mined.


Arasatine  [At]
-Atomic Number:130
-Atomic Mass: 322

Arasatine was one of the first new elements discovered by the Dominion. In its natural state, it is a silvery-grey metal which forms a nearly perfect cubic form similar to talc or some forms of fluorine. It is generally inert and poses no direct health hazards to humans to the point that one would have to ingest several pounds of Arasatine to suffer any sort of medical malady barring the expected gastro-intestinal consequences of ingesting that much metal. Arasatine as a material has effectively replaced the use of iron as it has a much higher tensile strength and forms the backbone of all non-ferrous alloys used in situations where the product is expected to survive extreme heating and cooling cycles as well as be exposed to cosmic radiation and or endure the stresses of combat and moving at faster than light speeds.  Effectively Arasatine alloys are easily several times more durable than the best of the Gigapascal steels and similar such alloys. The price for this is that simply the melting point for Arasatine is quite high in comparison, originally it also could not be formed into curves so Dominion vessels for example between the years of 2073 and 2096 BEC were often angular and a lot of architecture from that time period had a unnatural rigid industrial look to it. New machine tools and advances in molecular welding technology allowed for simulated curves while the discovery of new molecular metallurgy allowed for the first curved Arasatine Alloy structural members and hull plating. The major issue with Arasatine is that molecularly created versions even when alloyed have half the tensile strength and seem to also lose their non-ferrous qualities becoming detrimentally magnetic and modestly fragile when the exact same molecules are arranged in a laboratory. In theory, there is some process that is found on the one planet that has Arasatine that makes it what it is.


Dataurium  [Dm]
-Atomic Number: 131
-Atomic Mass: 331

Dataurium was one of the greatest elemental discoveries in Dominion history because it’s discovery lead to the discovery of Altradium, Cordolenite and its use with Nostromite converts Pyril from worthless metallic rocks to a strategic resource. With that said Dataurium is mined from Sedrinite type rock which is a semi-igneous form of rock that is most commonly found in the outer layers of a ‘cool’ planetary core of a type F geometallic planet at the 7th stage of core death (type G). In about 26% of the deposits of Sedrinite, Dataurium and Altradium will be present where as in 34% Dataurium, Atradium and Cordolenite will be present. Of the remaining 40% of Sedrinite only 6-8% of the time will a prospector find pure elemental Dataurium.  In common use Dataurium is generally utilized in electronics to nullify ionization and electro-magnetic pulses. This of course makes it ideal when combined with Lithon for computer circuitry and particularly effective when combined with Pyril while Nostromite is used as a doping agent to bring the two other elements together. Dataurium dioxide also has use as a congealing-agent in regenerative hull composites as it makes Gallentyne in its natural state thicker and far easier to apply to other solutions while not changing any of its other properties.


Teosinite  [Tsn]
-Atomic Number: 132
-Atomic Mass: 339

Teosinite is a complex pseudo silicate compound that is exclusively found in Nichols fields on the Planet Taveta. Unlike a number of minerals known in this galaxy and in the Dominion’s home galaxy it is possible to watch a crystal cluster of Teosinite to grow at a rate that is visibly perceptible just as long as it is in contact with the soil of the planet of Taveta, and in a few rare places on Risallas and New Magoro. When viewed from a distance, groups of Teosinite roughly resemble green-blue ice formations with the exception that they often grow vertically towards the sky and have full radial symmetry. The purest form of Teosinite is perfectly clear which appears in approximately 15% of all clusters. The rest of Teosinite clusters on average range into mildly cloudy (23%), moderately clouded (42%) and the rest are completely clouded giving them a milky green-blue color. Interestingly Teosinite, that is clear grows the slowest (1-3” per week) whereas fully cloudy teosinte grows rapidly (8”-14” per week) under ideal conditions in both cases. In common culture clouded Teosinite is generally available to the public while clear and mildly clouded Teosinite are a government regulated strategic resource. In common use Teosinite is used as a hard element in landscaping as it can form impenetrable barriers that can be used to shepherd foot traffic through paths.  It is common for rows of Teosinite to be used as Windbreaks and in lieu of installing masonry walls and or fences. Some specimens of Teosinite have been grown as standalone specimens in the one might grow an accent tree which takes several generations to produce a specimen that resembles a medium sized shade tree. In recent times specific, very slow growing clouded specimens of Teosinite have become popular in Bonsai culture as they are quite low maintenance. The high clarity types of Teosinite are harvested and utilized in the internal walls of Dominion Constant Flow Ambient Temperature Fusion Reaction Systems, lower clarity forms are used in electronics. Since Teosinite stops growing when removed from the planetary surface of the three planets where it will grow it effectively becomes a critical mineral that has industrial uses.  When considered in this light Teosinite after being processed is used in in two ways. The first way Teosinite is utilized to coat the inside of the torus used in the construction of Ambient temperature Fusion Reactors.  The coating exists to focus the normal field effects inside the reaction to maintain the fusion effect at ambient temperatures. The second use of Teosinite by the dominion is in circuit boards and chips because of its ability to act as a conductor without the need for including other elements to create conductivity unlike other forms of naturally occurring silicon. This saves quite a bit of effort and time in the production of computer hardware. When paired with molecular wiring and circuitry to direct the flow of energy in systems Teosinite circuit boards when doped with a varied mixture of Lithon/Dataurium the same boards are capable of acting as room temperature super conductors which massively increases the computational power of the Dominion’s computer systems while not incrementally increasing weight or bulk.


Niarhadine  [Nh]
-Atomic Number: 134
-Atomic Mass: 346

Niarhadine is an interesting substance that is fairly rare and is typically found in the cores of certain types of stars and thus cannot be artificially made in any form.  The common source for this material are failed Class K stars (less than 0.08%) and the micro nebulae found in the Vesuvius cluster. When harvested and refined in whatever amounts are possible Niarhadine is a strong, but light weight, alkaline metal. In pure form it is a semi-translucent dark grey to near black color and is commonly said to the opacity of large rock salt in that some light will pass through but it is not even remotely clear. The Dominion makes great use of whatever Niarhadine it can mine and refine as a primary agent for making its starship hulls tougher and the internal structures of such vessels far more resilient. In comparison to various carbon-based compounds that could be used in starship construction (and still are) Niarhadine is far more efficient as less is needed for the same applications, and it is not conductive to heat or electricity. When used in structural components such as support beams for example Niarhadine fibers incorporated into the beam will grant it three to four times the rigidity that a carbon-based compound such as fullerene would allow for. The down side to Niarhadine is that it is a more complex element and weighs a lot more than elemental or lab-made carbon and in terms of blocking radiation while it can absorb some it’s nowhere near graphite’s capacity for that task. In tests with Manaetronium-fission reactors it was found that Niarhadine is not useful as it only deflects neutrons and barely at best absorbs them. The few operating Manaetronium-fission reactors in the Dominion generally have a Niarhadine lining on the reactor vessel but still use graphite and other conventional materials for the control rods.



Talosine  [Ts]
-Atomic Number: 135
-Atomic Mass: 359

Talosine is a soft powdery substance that roughly resembles a sickly green gypsum except it has absolutely none of the same uses. Unlike Gypsum, Talosine if ground into a power and applied to the skin will actually integrate into the skin and begin to grow at a rate of 0.0391 micrometers per 36 hours. This would be an interesting concept for recreational body modification but the problem is that Talosine crystals would continue growing inwardly following the path of the host’s nervous system. Externally Talosine would begin to grow crystalline rosettes along the skin while outward growth in the cutaneous layers and fissuring of the skin causing a constant state of bleeding around the growing areas of Talosine. This growth of course is painful and it exposes the host to infections as their body will not be able to keep up with the constant skin fissuring.  In severe exposure cases those exposed may die from blood loss organ failure as the Talosine growths spread and begin to extract mineral nutrients from the individual. An isolated incident happened aboard the resource extraction vessel the Southward cross where the entire crew suffered extreme exposure to the then unknown material and were fed upon so rapidly they could not put out a distress signal. The vessel continued onwards to its next destination thanks to the autopilot and was boarded there when it failed to respond to hails. Thankfully the boarding team was wearing full EVA equipment as they found that Talosine crystal growths covered almost 70% of the surface of the interior habitation areas and all that was left of the crew was small amounts of calcium and carbon, the two things Talosine seems not to be able to metabolize. Due to this incident, Talosine is considered a class three hazardous material and it’s harvesting and use is strictly regulated. Fortunately, it turns out that high potency medial-grade charcoal can neutralize it in the body allowing an afflicted individual to naturally pass neutralized Talosine in the bodily wastes, though obviously this is not exactly a pleasant experience. In terms of usage, Talosine is very useful in increasing the efficiency of matter-antimatter reactions in the Dominion’s AMP-anti-shipping missiles as it can delay the interaction of plasma and anti-plasma long enough for the missile to reach its target. The Dominion military uses other methods to keep the active agents of their point defense ASM missiles separate as there simply is not enough Talosine mined to do it’s hazards to equip the large number of point defense missiles used by the military’s warships. Gelled Talosine when used as part of a shock absorption system demonstrates properties similar to Oobleck which makes it useful in damage mitigation systems for starships.



Sebittrium  [SBT]
-Atomic Number: 136
-Atomic Mass: 361

Sebbitrium is refined from Rhemonic ore, which is harvested from one of several failed gas giants in the Awasa sector of Dominion territory.  By itself Sebbitrium is a fairly heavy metal, with a dark grey-green coloration. It is non-magnetic and, non-conductive to electricity and in nearly pure forms it is used in power system insulators and as thermal shielding on ‘hot’ fusion reactors and fission power systems. Interestingly, pure Sebbitrium cannot be irradiated, yet resulting heat from a fission reaction can melt Sebbitrium which is why it was originally considered as a denser non-toxic form of lead by Dominion metallurgists early on. In the last thirty years however Sebittrium has been used as a material weight reduction agent in alloys as it rearranges the molecular structure of the common construction metals in just such a way as to reduce material weight an average of 20% while improving tensile strength by 5%. When paired with Ntulawii, Titanium, Uwensin, Gallentyne, and Arasatine the resulting alloy is often called Galactinum, though for note this name refers to a series of eight alloys with differing formulations of the aforementioned materials.



Ntualawii  [NTW]
-Atomic Number: 137
-Atomic Mass: 368

Ntulawii is typically harvested from the ejecta of type VIII chemically peculiar stars that for one reason or another have failed during their main phase or that destabilized early in their life cycle for reasons unknown.  Thus far the only known example of a class VIII is found in a cluster of three stars in the Banya Sector of Dominion territory. For note the stars in this case were the center of a trinary solar system where the worlds that orbited these stars have been locked in a geomorteus or geoinactive states and possess reducing atmospheres which make them uninhabitable and dangerous to mine for resources. Ntulawii mining is a highly dangerous operation because specially modified mining vessels need to get fairly close to the trinary stars to scoop up the ejected particles in a sort of end-run maneuver at moderate sub-light speed to avoid being directly hit by an ejected particle stream. In industrial usage Ntulawii is used as a strengthening agent in silicate glass products that are expected to experience vibration, and high pressure such as in inspection windows and on submersible vehicles. The military makes use of Ntulawii as part of Galactinum alloy where it adds a small amount of material resilience to kinetic stresses but also allows the effects of the sensor scattering composites in Dominion military assets to pass through the outer layers of armor unimpeded.



Sulactinite  [SLC]
-Atomic Number: 139
-Atomic Mass: 392

Sulactinite is one of the most important materials mined and refined by the Dominion because in its refined form it has effectively replaced the varied forms of hydrogen as a fuel source in fusion reactions for the dominion’s military and government assets. In its natural state with no impurities Sulactinite is a disordered hyperuniformity, in that it is a type of liquid with crystalline properties. In addition to its non-Newtonian nature, refined Sulactinite is readily manipulated in a magnetic field to a point that any fusion system designed to use it has to devote far less energy to its confinement fields however, this also means that the system has to devote more tonnage to shielding. By itself however Sulactinite is largely inert, which is fortunate because when in transport no special temperature or handling requirements are needed. However, before it is used as fuel a small amount of Cordolenite-based emulsifier is added which increases the reactivity of the compound and renders it into a fuel that when utilized in an ambient temperature fusion reaction yields between ten and fifteen times the energy of any hydrogen based fusion reaction. Despite the advantages of Sulactinite, hydrogen is still the most abundant element in the known galaxy and still relatively cheap to harvest from varied sources. It is due to this one fact that in gelled form both deuterium and protium are still used in fusion reactors on the civilian market.


Uwensin  [Nst]
-Atomic Number: 515
-Atomic Mass: 1,051

Uwensin is mined from Strömgren ore which is found on rouge planets or planetoids of geoplastic or geometallic composition that have been trapped or shattered inside a Strömgren sphere. Such occurrences are believed to be incredibly rare since only one such event has been documented in the Adirgraat sector of Dominion space.  At the time of the discovery the Mineral prospectors responsible for initially documenting the occurrence commented; ‘..and then there it was, it looked like some cosmic being or deity had decided to play a game of marbles using planets as the stand in for mere glass marbles.’ Uwensin is a critical component in the manufacture of Galactinum alloys and in military use it has effectively replaced Iron because far less of it is needed to create the same level of structural strength and it is non-magnetic. Civilian construction however still uses iron-based steels for construction.


Ukharii  [Nst]
-Atomic Number: 516
-Atomic Mass: 1,057

Ukharii, is mined from a Cthonian planet in the Voi Sector of Dominion space. The planet it comes from is called Graz, and it like the other six planets in the solar system are only suitable for relatively short-lived mining operations because the planet’s unstable orbit virtually guarantees it will be consumed by the nearby star in a few hundred years or less. The remaining atmosphere of Graz is largely composed of hydrogen and helium and the surface temperatures on the side of the planet that faces the sun can reach 800 degrees Celsius, since there is very little atmosphere none of the heat is retained and the ‘night’ temperatures can drop to 260 degrees Celsius. The original reason the Dominion decided to mine the world was for it’s incredibly rich deposits of iron, deuterium and diamonds. The discovery of a new element that had the ability of boosting the anti-corrosive properties of common corrosion resistant materials by roughly 30-43% only increased the drive to strip mine the already doomed planet. Since the world had no detectable life forms and it was going to be destroyed by the nearby star there was no ethical issue. Later on, the one property for which Ukharii was famed was discovered, this material was found to impart resistance (in alloys) to the thermal and corrosive properties of plasma.  This feature alone made it the natural choice for containment apparatus in the Dominion’s Anti-plasma/Plasma (AMP) missile technology as other materials could never quite keep the two catalysts apart resulting in sometimes disastrous pre-detonation of warheads.



Nostromite  [Nst]
-Atomic Number: 517
-Atomic Mass: 1,068

Nostromite in its native form is best described as an irrational-solid as it has qualities of a super-solid state of matter when subjected to the specific gravitational forces as well as Theta particle radiation. Due to the unique nature of Nostromite, it is difficult to contain and harvest in its natural state however what relatively small amounts are harvested can then be molecularly reconfigured into a more stable but liquid form by using Cordolenite and strong pulses of Theta wave radiation along with a strong gravitational shear (to remove impurities) to produce what Dominion scientists call Nostromite-Beta. This form of Nostromite is generally used as an extreme duration industrial lubricant for any starship component that is expected to be continually exposed to radiation, the vacuum of space and constant and extreme contraction and expansion cycles. The most common use of Nostromite-Beta is in the lubrication of moving parts in Dominion-made Hyperfield generator components and in the few moving parts of an Ambient Temperature Fusion reactor. Because of the difficulty in harvesting and refining Nostromite, and the fact that it cannot be molecularly reproduced in a laboratory elemental Nostromite is one of the most heavily regulated materials in the Dominion. This is not for a lack of trying as molecular synthesis methods have only produced a far lower quality material officially known as Nostromite-delta or ‘Fool’s Oil’ which has none of the advantageous properties of the beta version.


Hitthonnite  [Htn]
-Atomic Number: 518
-Atomic Mass: 1,071

Hitthonnite is one of a few gasses that are considered extensions of the known noble gasses due it having similar properties of being colorless and odorless yet due to its molecular complexity being surprisingly dense for a gas. Generally speaking Hitthonnite is a atmospheric gas found on Class B (Geomorteus), Class N (reducing atmosphere), Class S (super gas giants) type planets though it is also very rarely found on Class O Pelagic worlds as a form of condensate at or near the bottom of a pelagic world’s deep oceans. With that in mind it is somewhat difficult to harvest, purify and package Hitthonnite for use in general however only very small amounts of it are needed in general. The primary use for Hitthonite is in lighting, as it produces more illumination when an electrical current is applied to it than the known noble gasses are capable of. An additional advantage to using Hitthonite instead of xenon or a similar noble gas is that it effectively replicates more of the natural sunlight spectrum and produces little or no heat. This is incredibly useful on starships, in the lab and in green house agriculture. The latter use is very much of note because Hitthonite revolutionized the use of botany vessels by simply reducing the cost of operating such vessels and increasing the quality of yields from such vessels. In military use because Hitthonite is inert and because it does not produce any light until an electrical current is applied it is often used as the active medium in targeting lasers because it does not produce a beam that is on the visible spectrum yet can be used for guided strikes.


Lithon  [Ltn]
-Atomic Number: 519
-Atomic Mass: 1,077

Commonly called Rochan Crystal in the Dominion, this material is a stable bland material that has a crystalline lattice that makes it more durable than the highest quality of ferrous material impregnated concrete. In its native state Lithon is a drab dark grey to black colored material with a slight lister that roughly resembles a shinier Basalt. In the early decades of the Dominion’s establishment Lithon was used commonly as a construction material in lieu of fabricated and fired stoneware due to its abundance. However, it was discovered about forty years ago that Lithon that was subjected to chemical bath while under an intense magnetic field rearranged it’s crystalline lattice to produce the Rochan crystals that revolutionized the technology of molecular wiring and made dominion vessels immune to most forms of electron disruption.  It is because of this fact that, the method to convert Lithon is a state guarded secret and the Dominion does not trade the methods to make molecular wiring technology of the converted Lithon to foreign powers. It should be noted here that Lithon once converted to Rochan takes on a high luster crystalline form that can range from a very dark purple to obsidian like black with tiny flecks caused by impurities. The highest quality Rochan crystal for use in molecular wiring is described as resembling an evening sky, with visible impurities or flecks. Over time if left unused in its converted state Rochan will begin to accrue flecks as contact with air will introduce impurities eventually turning a sickly yellow green and becoming highly fragile and prone to spontaneous explosive shattering. Only the inclusion of Dataurium in the molecular wiring arrests this effect though truthfully as of this writing the answer for why this works is elusive.


Teuparium  [Tur]
-Atomic Number: 520
-Atomic Mass: 1,079

Teuparium is non-Newtonian fluid that can only be mined from class U ultra-gas giants that have a high concentration of Tseonite in their upper atmospheric layers and a nearly horizontally aligned axis. Teuparium is considered an extragalactic noble gas as it demonstrates properties similar to krypton and xenon under very specific circumstances.  Where it is present in a class U gas giant it is responsible for the very dramatic ionic flashes of ‘lightening’ in the atmosphere. In common use, it has only been found to be medically useful for neutralizing radiation poisoning when inhaled in a diluted form relative to the severity of the exposure. In this role, it is effectively a more potent Prussian blue treatment however over application of it can bring about medical side effects such as it forming crystals in the blood stream due to interaction with the ferrous components in blood cells which the body attempts to pass through he urinary tract. In the best-case scenario of an over dose the patient will simply have urine that changes colors at worse there is severe kidney and bladder damage as the formed crystals damage mucous linings during their exit from the body. Teuparium is commonly used to treat non-necrosing exposure to Manaetronium and in stronger concentrations to slow or halt up to stage III exposure.


Cordolenite  [Cdl]
-Atomic Number: 521
-Atomic Mass: 1,081

Cordolenite is a solid metallic element that has some properties similar to the heavy metals of the old periodic table but is very soft if not outright brittle depending on its relative purity. In its absolute purest form Cordolenite is softer than lead rating 1.03 on the Mohs hardness scale, with upwards of 50% naturally occurring impurities Cordolenite becomes very brittle to the point that rough handling can cause it to shatter. In appearance Cordolenite has a whitish-silver coloration and tends to form irregular cylindrical nodes that are part of winding veins within or near deposits of Sedrinite. At a glance this would make Cordolenite near worthless except for ballast but Cordolenite in it’s pure form when allowed with other materials has a peculiar molecular habit of reinforcing other molecular substances bringing them closer to one of the primary Newtonian states of matter. In the case of its use with Nostromite it stabilizes the molecular structure and makes it act both chemically and molecularly like a normal liquid. In the case of Sulactinite, Cordolenite fills in certain molecular bonds to make Sulactinite reactive as a fuel. Because of its transformative properties some in the scientific community have taken to calling Cordolenite the ultimate catalyst because by itself it’s not particularly useful but when combined with a number of other elements it almost always improves the other element’s usefulness.


Pyril (Risallan Pyrite)  [Prp]
-Atomic Number: 522
-Atomic Mass: 1085

Pyril is a naturally occurring compound that is only found on a planetoid orbiting the gas giant Risallas VII. No other sources of the material have been found thus far. Originally due to its resemblance to Iron pyrite albeit with a color resembling scorched bronze Pyril was originally called Risallan Pyrite and it was at first thought to have very little use; it’s density made mining for other materials difficult and it was the source of many prospector’s agitation. However, it’s labelling as useless ended when one research scientist at the University of New Magoro was accidentally delivered a shipment of powdered Risallan Pyrite rather than the Cordolenite she had ordered. Since the delivery was signed for and was opened there was no way to send the pyrite back so the scientist and her team tried a few experiments with the inert pyrite to see if perhaps they could discover something no one else had. The researchers would soon find out that mixtures combining Dataurium and Nostromite with Risallan Pyrite had a scattering effect on the lab’s chemical and molecular sensor equipment. Later tests found that the mixture in zero gravity could be woven and compressed into plates that could be used to disperse the energy of a sensor just enough that no useful data could be gleaned and yet it was not a stealth type effect which would fit the military cultural disdain for stealth attacks. This discovery would lead to the retrofitting of all military vessels with sensor scattering hull composites by 2112 and the government operated trade convoy system would finish retrofitting it by 2126 AEC. The invention of the scattering composite effectively gave the dominion the upper hand in a lot of engagements after this simply because the dominion could attack a target at extended range and yet the target could not effectively return fire at the same ranges.
Natural resources of the Dominion of Risallas
For note the natural resources are in order of atomic number, and this list represents naturally occurring elements that are only found within the Forlorn Spiral region within Dominion territory*. Given that attempts at molecular synthesis of these materials in a laboratory setting yields only very poor quality imitations of the naturally harvested and refined forms, these materials remain unknown to the greater galaxy*.

*the exception to this is the Davian red crystal.
**Davian red crystal is excluded from this since the Davians have done a fair amount of trading with this material.

Update: 11-30-2017
-I added four critical elements; Sebittrium, Ntualawii, Uwensin and, Ukharii.

Name of Nation: The Kingdom of Otun


Primary Information

Date of Founding: February 9th 834 CE

Flag: (still being worked on)

Motto:
Ashalin (very simplified): “Isulkan ji ajarba inyano ji ayilera.”
Latin: “Unitas virium debilitas divisio.”
English: “Unity is Strength, Division is Weakness.”

Capital:

Unlike most nations in the world today the Kingdom of Otun has three governmental capitols, and two military capitols. This is due to the fact that the two majority peoples of the nation; the Ashalin (of the Ashlin Kindgom) and the Ansarii (of the Ansar Republic) did not conquer each other. In the exact opposite of what was considered normal for the time the two nations settled into a decades long armistice with increasing normalization of contact after expanding inward from the west (Ansarii) and east (Ashalin) and finding they could not expand further in that direction. As such, the creation of a central new capitol and the establishment of two military capitols resulted and the specific information can be found below.

Cobata (The new Capitol)

The new capital is known as Cobata, and it is located in the geographic center of the nation. Cobata is important because it is where representatives from all the peoples of the nation meet on what is effectively neutral ground to discuss matters of national importance. The construction of Cobata is culturally important because it signifies the absolute union of two the Ashalin and Ansarii nations. Though the need for such a city came out of conflict since originally the two nations were on a fast track to long-term war with each other. Both nations had expanded by cultural and military means inward from the east and west coasts and of course with such expansionism the two were destined to run into each other. However, when the two nations clashed they found that neither could gain much of an upper hand, and an armistice was agreed upon. The Armistice was intended for just the winter months of 1093 but lasted far longer and eventually lead to agreements of disarmament then trade and finally the unification accords of 1103 CE. Twenty years after the unification accords were signed, the settlement of Cobata and its beginnings as the national capitol began. In 1105 CE it was agreed then that the two peoples would retain their national capitols for their own local affairs but would jointly construct a capitol in the geographic center between the two so that fair and equal representation could be had for both. As such Cobata is not considered to be owned by either nation but is a neutral ground for both and both nations equally contribute to its maintenance. This agreement in turn revolutionized the concept of an Absolute Republic. The design of new capital needed to make sure that the people of the Ashalin and Ansarii nation had equal access to the leadership of the nation so that accountability and integration could occur more easily for the various peoples absorbed into the new nation.  However, there was a strong desire of the Ashalin and Ansarii majority not to be seen as a conquering people who thought that all of the known world bent at their whim so the new capital was built in such a way that every road, building and structure was designed with consideration in terms of integrating elements of the native jungle. Unlike other cities in the world, the tallest buildings aren’t rectangular, but rather some form of tapered and truncated pyramid.  Pockets of intentionally placed and cultivated native plants and trees take all the hard angles out of structures in the city and merge the wilderness with the clean order of a modern city. Overall the city is beautiful to behold at any time of the year and certainly has no equal in any part of the world. In terms of governmental efficiency, the absolute republic governmental system itself is known for resolving


Ceren (The old Ashalin Capitol)

Ceren is the old capitol of the Ashalin people and much like Ansar (on the west coast), it does serve as a critical administrative center and a means by which the Ashalin people can gain access to the government, but it also serves as a backup site should something happen to the new capitol. Ceren is the first true city built by the Ashalin people and as such it holds a lot of history fop the people including the largest library and natural history record in the entire country. It should be noted that Ceren due to its age has the largest population in the entire country as 8,631,936 residents reported the city was their primary place of residence in the 1940 census.


Ansar (The old Ansarii Capitol)

Ansar is the original capitol of the Ansarri people and is just a few decades older than Ceren and thus has a rich cultural history and in recent times as construction on roads and infrastructure has occurred Ansar has been the site of several culturally significant archaeological discoveries. Ansar itself is located in the western half of the country and like Ceren it handles the local laws and administration of the Ansarii people but also serves as a backup seat of government should something happen to Ceren or Cobata. Due to enforced population density laws and the architecture of the city Ansar has a smaller population than Ceren at 7,538,362 residents but each individual has more average square feet of space than most modern cities which helps contribute to greater average longevity.


Tulina & Taljin (The military capitols)

Tulina & Taljin are commonly called ‘the twins’ because they both are military capitols of the Ashalin and Ansarii peoples respectively. Both came about as the two nations sized each other up and originally were encampments that became fortifications and eventually full military cities in their own right by 1342 CE. As a result of the armistice and the resulting unification both cities became critical deployment centers especially after the introduction of the steam locomotive in 1840, and more so with the invention of the passenger aircraft in 1935. By 1940, both military cities had grown to have roughly 3,398,447 non-military residents and an averaged total population in each between 6.7-6.8 million residents.

Government: (Absolute Republic)

The Absolute Republic is a representative type of government that was devised after the Unification of the Ashalin and Ansarii peoples as a means to settle disputes and disparities in the law, tax collection and services to the people in a fair and equal way while ensuring that no aspect of the government was out of reach for the common citizen. To this point the nation has three governmental capitols one of which is a neutral ground between the nations and its peoples allowing for unrivaled transparency in governmental affairs. All governmental representatives are elected and those who are governmental employees are routinely evaluated to ensure that they retain the best interests of the population at large in consideration while they perform their government appointed tasks. It should be noted here that the Royal families of the Ashalin and Ansarii people are largely considered figureheads and the old system of royalty is largely in title only.

Main rulers and people of power: -See ooc notes-

Military:  

The Kingdom of Otun’s military is divided into two primary branches of service, the Army and the Navy. Under the specific control of the army are the Marines and the National Militia Corps, in comparison under the control of the navy is the Air Force and the Maritime Logistics Service.  With such a simplification of the military branches of service the Kingdom of Otun has reduced inter-service rivalries as each is well funded and the Military command has fair representation in the government but, the military industrial complex does not. As such the average military hardware seen across all branches of service is not derived from the lowest bidder but from the weapons and materials that have proven to perform the best in the deep jungles that surround and define the Kingdom of Otun. In terms of military strength any given time, the Kingdom of Otun is able to field an immediate force of around 10,000,000 troops with a functioning reserve of 32,000,000 military troops which is understandably spread across the army the navy and the logistical supporting assets of the military.  The normal size of the military including reserves in peacetime is roughly 13% of the entire population

In regard to the first world war, the Kingdom of Otun was officially neutral however, citing that the completion of its canal project was consuming more resources than planned and thus occupying the manpower to mount a direct war effort. Quietly though, the kingdom did allow damaged allied* vessels to receive repairs in their neutral ports and the internment of the crews and vessels were expedited under numerous diplomatic covers to avoid being involved formally in the war. Secret shipments of war materials under false labeling and manifests and other materials were also laundered through the Kingdom’s ports to aid the allied war effort. The Logistics service alone fended off no less than four hundred and twelve submarine attacks that occurred against allied shipping in the declared coastal waters of the kingdom and Republic of Irju. While some decry the standoff rule of the Kingdom of Otun, the completion of the trans-continental canal in late 1916 allowed a massive influx of materials to pour into the allied front. Since none of the Axis powers would sign the Kingdom’s agreement to not engage in hostile activities while using the canal system or the Kingdom’s harbors while the Allies did sign most historians agree that the completion of the canal altered the outcome of the war in the favor of the allies even though it was not expressly built for that purpose. Ultimately while the Axis nations after their defeat came to curse the Kingdom of Otun, for their neutrality and diplomatic subterfuge not a single axis nation ever dared to lift a finger against the Kingdom of Otun during the First World War.

OOC Notes

“Population”
Inevitably some will balk at this population number however it is derived from the census of 1940 from our nearest country in landmass which as noted in ‘land area’ is India. Although The kingdom of Otun isn’t culturally anything like India, this is the most rational population number for a country that I can work with.

“Land Area”
Because of the geographical shape of the Otun Kingdom before its latest expansions it is very difficult to accurately measure so some rounding down has resulted in a nation that is by geographical comparison is slightly bigger than India, but smaller than Australia.

“Rulers Section”
Since I tend to tell stories from the ground floor, this section won’t be filled out for a while as the characters involved are still in an early stage of development while the lower level characters are fully designed.

“Allies”
At the time of this writing the names and information regarding the belligerents of the first world war were known or published in any document. A strictly ooc inquiry about the missing/ incomplete information has indicated that the allies in question are called the Brakkendar Empire.
National Information - The Kingdom of Otun
This is the first of many revisions to the 1940's era nation that in earlier revisions was known as the Kingdom of Ashlain, the nation still has the ashalin in it but I've reworked the entire core of the nation to represent the style and aesthetic I'd originally intended.

General Overview
=====================


Overview

The design basis of the Paterson class of complete starbases has its roots in Zeugma base which was the Dominion’s first operational starbase in the galaxy.  By comparison the much older Zeugma type starbase was a one-off design that over several decades grew far beyond its original design parameters due to its modular nature and its ability to change orbit without the assistance of towing starships. Unfortunately, as the station grew in size it had to keep moving further away from the planet it was supposed to be orbiting as its new mass would often put the structural integrity of the station at risk because not all of the station was designed to handle the extra mass.  In the 2080’s work began on a new starbase design that matched the Zeugma type’s capacity with critical improvements, this design would come to be known as the Paterson class starbase. Unlike its precursor, the Paterson class was designed from the ground up with an expected habitation capacity of 500,000 and a limited modular features so that the starbase could never exceed its own core structural integrity. Special attention in the design was granted to the inclusion of a large internalized docking ring that could house a normal capacity of sixty vessels and an additional external docking capacity of another fifty vessels. In addition to the capitol vessel capacity of the starbase one-hundred and twenty external dropship docks and six-hundred small craft squadron bays (2,400 small craft) were included in the design to handle maintenance, ship traffic and other aspects expected of a major starbase. Also, the station regularly operates nine hundred fighter squadrons (10,800 starfighters) allowing it to project a considerable amount of force and ensure its zone of control.  

To coordinate all of this, the Paterson class starbase is equipped with hemispherical SAINT type sensor arrays. The SAINT system itself is one of the best sensor systems the dominion has produced despite taking nearly forty years of testing and design to finally put the system in the Dominion military’s arsenal. In the advent of a critical failure Paterson class starbases all have an isolated secondary SAINT sensor system of equivalent power to ensure that at the very least vessel traffic is always managed precisely and efficiently. The presence of two sensor systems of equivalent power that are isolated from each other grants the Command of a Patterson class starbase the ability to overpower jamming, and electronic warfare as the systems themselves are adaptive and individually weigh seven million tons making them larger than a lot of starships. The sensors aren’t the only thing on the starbase with a built-in redundancy; the station also possesses two structural integrity systems once of which is auxiliary. In general, the only times the two SIF systems are operational at the same time would be during a combat event or when the ship is making a hyperfield jump at its maximum range. Much like the sensors the SIF systems are independent of each other which makes them harder to disable. To further protect the Dominion’s investment in such a large orbital facility a total of forty-two million tons of armor protects the starbase while its regenerative internal structures are reinforced as much as is possible. As with all Dominion military vessels the Paterson class starbase also has sensor scattering composites incorporated into in to its hull and internal structure. Unlike dominion vessels though, the composites for the sensor scattering effect in the Paterson’s hull make heavier use of Pyril because the station encounters more traffic than a military warship is expected to. The armament of the Paterson class starbase is quite significant and has led some to refer to it as a space fortress. The primary armament of the Paterson class consists of sixty-four dual mount Pulse AGML mark IV directed energy weapons.  Secondary armament consists of One hundred and ninety-two dual mount AMP-ASM mark X launch systems, seventy-two dual mount type G Autoglaives and seventy-two dual mount Light-18M DRAIL kinetic energy weapons. The tertiary armament of the starbase is comprehensive and is comprised of three thousand and six hundred single-mount QF12 AGML arrays, three thousand and six hundred single-mount AMP-AAF/8i launch systems and, three thousand and six hundred single-mount Type 8/AA DRAIL kinetic energy weapons. As a final note to the complete armament of the Paterson Class as part of the defensive systems of the starbase the Paterson class has eight Spatial Distortion arrays installed in its primary facings to lower the probability of enemy fire hitting the starbase.
Paterson Class Starbase
Here it is, the single largest Dominion-made object in the galaxy, the Paterson Class Starbase. Ten have been made, so that's one per district of Dominion space with exception to the capitol district where two have been built. Each one is a functional symbol of the industrial strength of the Dominion and despite the massive scale each is self-propelled.

Western Regional League



Introduction

The Western Regional League (WRL) was founded during the Second Ancerius Galactic war as a means of uniting the smaller western nations into a political bloc that would have the power to forge its own policy independent of the international strife that seemed to be consuming the entirety of the northern, southern and eastern quadrants of the galaxy. The primary objective of the WRL is to ensure that all member nations have fair and equal representation locally and abroad. To this end the WRL is a potent political assembly that by the factor of power in numbers, the Western regions of the galaxy are kept free of unwanted incursion, foreign exploitation, and the ravages of unchecked imperialism. Additionally, the existence of the WRL brings law to a formerly lawless region of the galaxy and with that greater prosperity for its membership.



Membership Requirements

Any nation seeking admittance to the WRL must have their current primary home territory located within the noted borders as seen on the map on the first page of this document. To clarify what this area entails specifically, the western region is defined as the entirety of the Avarian frontier with the included western fringe regions all the way to farthest western border of the galaxy.


WRL Organizational Structure

As of the formation of the WRL, the following organization will be formed for the purposes of handling normal operations of the League and ensuring that the needs of the member states are met in a quick and efficient manner and any possible conflict between the member nations is handled with mediation to avoid armed conflict. With the aforementioned in mind the WRL will utilize a two-tier organization consisting of a Chairperson and, the Quorum.
- The Chairperson serves as the official representative of the entire WRL when dealing with foreign powers and political entities. Additionally, the Chairperson can vote to break a tie in regards to WRL internal matters. The chairperson is elected by vote of the Quorum from the body of the quorum and will serve a set term that cannot be repeated until all representative nations have had a member of their delegation as an acting chairperson.
- The Quorum is a representative boy consisting of locally elected/selected individuals who act as the representative body of the WRL. All members of the Quorum are deemed equals, and no member of the quorum can an active participant in the quorum and a chairperson at the same time. It is the duty of the Quorum to oversee the creation and implementation of law, policy and the economic survival of the WRL as a whole.

In general, all member nations may put forth a representative to the quorum at the time of their acceptance into the WRL.


Standardized Non-Aggression Pact (SNAP)

The following is a standardized agreement for use with member nations of the Western Regional League, all member nations must agree to it to be granted entry (along with having territory in the denoted region).

Terms and Conditions

1. Signatories of SNAP may individually agree on a one-on-one basis to have a more detail military aid agreement. This agreement may stipulate whatever the two parties agree upon but is covered by the caveats seen in the MAP section of this document.

2. Signatories of SNAP may forge their own independent local trade Documents that if fully agreed upon by the two parties in question will be backed by the Quorum of the WRL.

3. Signatories of SNAP may also forge independent foreign trade arrangements at their leisure, but these agreements must not compromise the safety, of the WRL or its financial strength.

4. Signatories of SNAP agree that within their national borders their own military has absolute jurisdiction. In unclaimed open space within the marked boundaries of the WRL trade lane patrol assets generally have jurisdiction unless the Quorum has ordered a military intervention. In the advent of a sanctioned military intervention, the quorum will designate which military has jurisdiction and if more than one military is involved what the state of cooperation is.

5. Signatories of SNAP who are also members of the WRL agree, that they at no time will willingly and knowingly make any action that could bring harm to another WRL nation.

6. Signatories of SNAP who are also members of the WRL explicitly agree that while it is expected that commerce will inevitably compete they will do nothing to cause intentional catastrophic economic losses to another WRL nation.

7. Signatories of SNAP who are also members of the WRL may not be an accomplice to unwarranted military aggression. Examples include knowingly allowing an enemy force to utilize your territory to make an attack against another WRL nation.

8. 7. Signatories of SNAP who are also members of the WRL may not utilize less-than-legal methods to intentionally damage another WRL nation’s commerce by way of mercenary forces, foreign legion style military operations, criminal activity, piracy or industrial or commercial sabotage.

9. The use of Cyber-warfare against other Signatories of SNAP who are also members of the WRL is strictly forbidden.

10. The intentional act of inciting an uprising with or without the aid of guerilla forces and proxy militaries against the legally elected governments of signatories of SNAP who are also a member of the WRL is strictly forbidden.

11. For reference the breaking of the aforementioned rules contained in  the Western Regional League’s member-specific SNAP document may result in suspension from or expulsion from WRL depending on the frequency and severity of the infaction.





Standardized Trade Agreement (STA)

Although the WRL as a governing body does not directly set any intricate terms for trade agreements within the borders of the WRL it does encourage individual member nations to specialize in a specific trade item/items without repeat specializations if possible to avoid market saturation. This in turn encourages a balanced free-trade arrangement as no nation has to worry for being unduly undercut economically while each has something that can be traded by locally agreed-upon means without the risk of over or under-valuation. Obviously, it is anticipated that member nations would trade at better rates with each other than they might trade to outside nations.


Military Assistance Pact (MAP)

In general, WRL’s ruling body does encourage the cooperation of its member states in the patrolling and upkeep of trade lanes running between the individual member nations as part of support for the STA. To this point a member state can either assign vessels to patrols or contribute to a joint international patrolling organization to keep the known trade lanes piracy-free and thus reduce economic losses to preventable incidents. For anything greater than this that requires military action the WRL follows a specific set of rules regarding the nature of military aid between nations.
1. If the nation requesting military assistance is the clear aggressor in the given conflict it is up to individual nation’s discretion and/or their individual agreements to determine if they are required to intervene. It is possible that this form of intervention may not be considered actionable by the Senior Quorum and the nations engaged in warfare whom have seats on the quorum may be asked temporarily to recuse themselves from WRL positions.
2. If the nation requesting assistance is not the aggressor in a conflict, individual agreements for military aid are considered legal and actionable.
3. Should a threat come along that is determined by the Senior Quorum to be a significant threat to the safety and stability of the region as a whole (e.g. an invasion without provocation). The Senior Quorum may decide (after hearing arguments from the Senate) decide to declare war against the threat. Member states may opt to set their role in such a declaration to supportive or active. A supportive role means that a member nation may opt not to engage in any direct combat instead taking up supportive roles such as production of war materials, additional trade route patrols or similar such tasks to maintain the safety and survival of the WRL. Active participants in a given declared war are given a legal pretext to engage the threat to the region in the way that is seen fit by the declared field commanders from each nation.

With the above said, it is not the goal of the WRL to seek conflict and such the Quorum should only agree to declare war when absolutely necessary and even then, in a limited fashion as a means to an end.
Western Regional League Charter
Some of you may have heard of it, but the WRL or Western Regional League which operates in the western side of the Ancerius galaxy and the above are the rules and codes of conduct for nations that are members in the organization. It may be the first document of it's kind to be produced in Ancerius.

The current members-nations of WRL are as follows in alphabetical order:

Ancient One Hedgemony - :iconCrimsonDeath225:
Divine Davian Empire - :iconnhinhonhinho:
The Risallas Dominion  - :icongratefulreflex:
Three Domains Alliance - :icongingerninja3303:

First off the name TKG is my initials, but that aside I started out with loose sketches in my notepad which originally transformed into scaled-up paintings. Later on this turned into the digital art that fills my online portfolio on Deviant Art. At first I only did paintings but as time progressed, the digital became dominant for the ease of editing and the sheer simplicity of making a piece of art one pixel at a time. As with the old times my art is done with each wave of inspiration with little or no directive other then the fervor of the moment. feel free to leave a comment about it all.
Interests
Well you knew this was coming didn’t you? It is official 2017 is as terrible a year thus far as 2016 was. Below are my two comments regarding the deaths of Paul O'Neill, and Gregg Allman respectively as I got the news. If you don't know who these guys are; well I suggest you look at 80’s and classic rock respectively.
 
"Paul O'neill, the man who made Christmas rock, he who turned the bland Christmas choir into a rock and roll ensemble and made the holidays something to doubly look forward to. I do not know if Trans Siberian Orchestra will continue at all, but I know this, I have CD's from the past glory days  of TSO and will remember the time however brief on the mortal coil when Christmas was invaded by the glory of rock and roll."
 
"Damn....first I hear the lead of Trans-siberian Orchestra and now this....could 2017 suck any less at any point? Gregg may you rest in peace, know that classic rock especially never forgets and in of that you are a legend that cannot ever find compare."


We are unfortunately of an age where we get to see the old rockers who changed it all feel their age; we've lost Bowie and Prince and several others and it's no less sad even if you were not a fan because we will never see these guys and gals make another witty comment while being interviewed or make another deep musical commentary about the ails of the world or hell just flippantly remind us that they too are human. I think it's the humanity that gets lost in the shuffle of popularity, we expect that these people will go on forever but in reality they are mortal even if their contributions to culture and music are functionally immortal.

What do all of you think?

Thanks Jarl, though I hope the successful year part applies to 2017 cause 2016 has been a flaming nuclear train wreck.
