The Nation of Ferrovia has fractured with the death of king Harold with three successor states and a bandit kingdom now fighting over the nation's future. King Elric, the king's brother backed by the landed nobility of the country, wages war in hopes of holding up the monarchy and by connection with the landed gentry. As he styles himself now Lord protector Baric attempts to halt the Monarchists and reformists from harming the status quo with the backing of the army his force is small but well trained and armed. The last of the main contenders is Queen Meredith the sole child of King Harold and devout reformist backed by merchants democrats and communists alike she must lead this dispraite force to victory.

Past threads:https://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=BrinkQM

You are Sir Edmund ”The Crow” Drayton, a recently Knighted Yeoman, the leader of the small monarchist sub faction of the reformists. In an example of extremely effective lighting warfare you've done a great deal to push to the Monarchist capital of Clark's Landing encircling the city and trapping the Pretender and his Heir inside. In an daring plan youve airdropped a significant amount of your men inside the city before assaulting and seizing the palace with your men. Through sheer skill and luck your men were able to take the pretender alive and now you must attempt to convince Prince Elric to order a general surrender or you will have to hold out against his forcers which are converging on the capture palace.

Oh it's actually good sweet. Based off last thread feedback was gonna suggest as a modification to my plan of "just shoot him" we would attempt some trickery where we would take the king out the room "execute" him put a gag in his mouth and bag over his head. Tell the heir that his father is dead and he is now in charge, try to convince em to give orders for surrender under threat of joining his father, assuming he cooperates by the time people realize the fekery that happened we should theoretically be in a much safer position seems we may not have to even attempt this though wew.

I mean, mock executions are technically a firm of torture and I don't think our protagonist really is into that kind of thing but it might have worked. But i still rather like the idea of just scaring him by making him realize he can't intimidate us, which for Elric had to be the first time he's dealt with someone he can't push around for years and years
>>
You crouch down to the pretenders eye level"Look one of two things is going to happen here. Either you and your son die, ending your claims to the throne and leading to the eventual collapse of the monarchist movement since they no longer have an actual monarch to rally around, or you call off your guard, order your men to stand down, and begin the process of transferring rule of the southern districts to the Rightful Queen and the Ferrovian People." His face still one of anger “I will not give up one of my only chances of survival you upjumped serf, If I order my men to throw down their arms Ill be hanging from a lamppost before dinne!r”

You pin your nose and sigh"Look If you get your lads to put down their guns, I am sure I can talk your niece into finding a way to wriggle you out of the consequences of your own actions with your life and property more or less intact. I very much doubt shes going to execute her family worse comes worse I imagine your going to go into exile somewhere with a nice villa while your kids stay in country as potential backups in the line of succession” He sneers at you “ you are truly desperate then afraid my men will storm this place and kill you?” You just smirk at the prince “Elric, I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane to be with you here today. Do you think I'm bothered by the fact that my men are outnumbered and surrounded? We're paratroopers. This is what we *do.* I'm not in any particular hurry to bring you to any harm, but you need to understand that as of right now, the only way you're going to make it out of here alive is if I make it out of here alive.” The young Prince Albrect reaches over and grabs his fathers arm tightly fear in his eyes “Father the war is lost even if the palace is retaken were surrounded and without a real army lets just end this” Elric looks to his son and then back at you and then your men standing around the ballroom.

“Bring me a radio general” You signal to one of your men to bring a radio over. He quickly tunes it to a frequency that is full of various monarchist officers shouting commands and reports. He brings the microphone to his mouth before depressing the switch and speaking. “Attention my soldiers and knights this is your King speaking you've fought well and shown great courage in the face of adversary but we have been bested by my kin and their is no shame in that I hereby order a general halt to all combat in the city and who disobey this order will face the full might of the crown” He lets go of the switch and hangs his head passing the radio back to your man. His son pats him on the back and draws his father into a tight hug.

The gunfire in the city slowly lessens as sunrise slowly gives way to morning as regular infantry from both the communists and reformist forces move into the city to begin disarming the surrendering militias and houseguards.

Also we need to especially get Elric to hand over operations against the Junta as smoothly as possible and avoid a total collapse of his lines.
Ideally we'd rotate out the monarchists gradually, and allow them to volunteer or go home once each unit is relieved.
>>5968075
They can grumble but expediency is more important than justice. We're literally trading Elric's life for their own lives and we'll make it clear to Mr. Baker when we get the chance. Ideally we'd find an old fort to convert into a fairly comfortable prison, and store the (non cooperative) nobility there until the war is over and their assets have been liquidated.

You make sure the palace and your prisoners are to be kept under your control at all times and that anyone who tries to enter the palace is disarmed before they enter. The morning has fully dawned as you step out of the palace gate; various civilians occasionally peek out of the surrounding homes to see the infantry and occasional tank pass by as they collect up the equipment of the surrendering enemy.

The trip north to were the company of troopers were trapped was a quick one and on your arrival you find a true warzone. The enemy had tried their hardest to destroy the company but they had held firm and bleed the enemy hard the bodies of houseguards and milla lay scattered around a block of house which had been riddled by bullets. You meet the company commander as he is supervising body cleanup. Hes Captin Fisk of 3rd company another peasant born officer whos been quite reliable so far

>Promote him to major
>give his entire company R&R
>>
>>5968853
>Promote him to major

"Major Fisk." let him recover from shock "I'll write to the queen about this action. Maybe you will get a knighthood next to this promotion. Your company is also to report for some R&R and some reorganisation. Tell the men we couldn't have captured the pretender as fast as we did without their actions. Dismissed."

You send his company off with 48 passes as well as award him the rank of major and promise to put in a good word with the queen and see if you can get him a knighthood. You then turn and make your way south to the harbor.

The relatively unscathed city soon gives way to one of shattered windows and the occasional bullet hole. It seems Norton and his men caused some real havoc down near the harbor. When you eventually arrive at the harbor itself you see what you imagine was at some point a warehouse or something that was now a large crater in the dock area. You find Norton busying himself with ransacking another warehouse that seems full of various fancy clothes. There's honestly alot of bodies around the harbor that must have been very well protected before your friend showed up and made a massive crater out of the harbor.

maybe get Norton some kind of commendation as well.
"Goddammit Drayton why did you convince the Queen to go ahead and make me a knight?"
>>
You head over to where Norton is digging through a crate of expensive clothes wearing some insanely gaudy feathered cap on his head like some sort of pirate. “Norton stop being a thief for five minutes and get your men over to the big hole you made” Norton laughs before ordering two of his men who are standing by to grab up his boys before following behind you.

“So like my handy word Edmund?” He says with the widest grin you've ever seen. “Honestly? Yeah, what did you blow up to do it?” You say as both of you come up to the edge of the crater. He keeps grinning at you. “Ammonium Nitrate” You blink in surprise not just because he named a fertilizer but also because that's probably the most complicated word you ever heard your gapped tooth friend say. “Fertilizer?” He vigorously nods “Turns out mixing it with diesel fuel with this shit makes one big fuckin boom” He makes the motion of an explosion with his hands. “Caught some smugglers coming out of the city and they mentioned the big stockpile of fuel and fertilizer they had here in the harbor one of my boys mentioned mixed they could explode just didn't think it was going to be so big one of my squads are still deaf after lighting it”

The rest of his men soon arrive and you take the time to wrangle them into an impromptu photo which you get one of the many reformist journalists to take for you. After you finish and Nortons men swarm off to continue stealing to their hearts content you clap your friend on the shoulder “Norton what you did here today was a deed of great heroism im going to put you up for a knighthood. Nortons face as you expect is soon filled with an angry scowl “Edmund your my friend but that won't stop me from throwing you into the crater” You pat him the back as you cackle “I wouldn't put it past you Norton”

>>
>>5970564
>>Return to Nevefar
like I mentioned earlier we probably want to do something to make sure the Monarchist line's against the Junta don't collapse but that is also probably a job for Mr. Steel not Drayton.

Also maybe once we get to Neverfar, try to push for establishing a maximum sentence for the crime of "Rebellion" as 20 years in prison, loss of title and property, and lifetime exile from Ferrovia upon release, so we can reasonably say that none of the people we capture will be executed (unless they committed other crimes like wartime atrocities, or need to be tried for normal criminal activity before the war)
It would probably go a ways to making our job easier (our job being to win the war) if people aren't fighting to the death against us because they're convinced they'll die anyway.
Of course, letting Elric live will essentially end the death penalty as a punishment since all the other rebels will be able to reasonably argue that if he doesn't get executed for his role, they shouldn't, either. But stating that explicitly goes a ways toward presenting the reformists as the most reasonable and humane of the belligerents.
>>
>>5970569
+1
Yeah since junta and bandit kingdom will fight back harder if we don't spare the ex-crown king, then secessionists and bandits will turn to war crimes to resist extinction. We just need to beat down the communists as they will push to kill everyone or cause another civil war.
>>
I would like to point out Elrics survival rests solely on Meredith who has some pragmatic reason to keep elrics children as princes considering his three sons are the only other people in the line of succession
>>
>>5970605
Yeah but we're trying to create a situation where he survives by pushing for a punishment for Rebellion that stops well short of execution so that we can have an easier job of taking back the country. Locking him up for 20 years and sending him into exile (along with other conspirators) would mean we have 20 years to consolidate control over the country and he'd be an old man when he got released, drastically reducing the chances of his causing any trouble.
Also because while we didn't make any explicit promises, we did imply that he wasn't going to be executed when he surrendered to us, and Drayton seems like the kind of person who'd at least do his due diligence to make good on that sort of thing.

A huge part of our strategy so far is convincing our enemies to defect or surrender by guaranteeing their (relative) safety if they come quietly and violently slaughtering them if they choose not to, which put together create a very convincing set of incentives. This just builds on that.

Also, imposing a maximum sentence for all instances of Rebellion would shield Meredith from potential backlash, because it will mean that she is not giving her uncle special treatment that she would not give other rebels.

And even if we're looking at the Commies, there is the example of Emperor Puyi in Communist China to go off of, who was basically allowed to live out his life as a commoner after the war. So it is not impossible that we can bring Mr. Baker and the others in on the plan if we sell it to them convincingly.

I think Drayton should try to make his case for a Maximum Sentence for Rebellion to Baker, Meredith, and the various factions of the Reformist movement using a few of these points.

You spend a few days making sure your prisoners make it out of the city alive and that the communists aren't executing everyone vaguely related to the nobility and that the reformists aren't stealing everything not nailed down. That done you make your way by train to the capital this time your men coming along with you many of them needing some rest and much of your equipment needing to be repaired or replaced.

The city of Nevefar you swear gets busier each time you visit. There's truly a horde of journalists waiting for you at the train station but a group of Queensguard from the palace surround you and escort you to a waiting staff car saving you from being talked to death by journalists. As you arrive at the palace you are welcomed in by the queensguard who are still on high alert but in a far better mood then the last time you visited. The court itself is buzzing with activity as you enter people chatting about the recent defeat of the monarchists and sound hopeful of the coming campaign against the Junta. You see your nominal communist ally Mr Baker speaking to several other men and he does not seem happy. Likewise you see the queen speaking to Marshal Alric at her throne, and finally you also recognize Duke Mason who seems to be in far better spirits and seems quite popular with the white band on his arm signifying his prisoner status now gone.

Speak too

>>
>>5971662
>>Mr Baker
I want to bounce the "20 years imprisonment, asset expropriation, and exile" idea off Baker and get him on board on pragmatic grounds before trying to sell it to the Queen. I think he is pragmatic enough to realize why it's a good idea, since we have to end the war before we can actually get on with all the actual reforming that the Reformist Movement wants to do, and giving our enemies a good reason to not fight us to the death will speed up that whole process. And he can't deny that we've gotten good results from instigating mass defections in the past.
>>
>>5971769
...and of course the other side of the coin is our commitment to finding creative, exciting, and intellectually stimulating ways of separating our enemies from their corporeal existence, should they choose not to surrender to our forces. Our mercy begins with the enemy's submission and not a moment before. I'm sure Baker can agree on that point as well.

Looks like the Duke may of charisma maxed his way into being free and becoming part of the constitutional monarchist faction and the commies are mad. While this does help our side and commie cope is always great this also does not bode well for the king getting any major punishment cause after all, if some random duke can talk his way into freedom then what about flesh and blood? If the king (and maybe son?) isn't punished harsh enough this could very well be the straw that breaks the camels back as far as the commies deciding to fight US now if we are unlucky. I hope we don't come to regret taking the king alive.
>>
>>5971769
It's already fucked anon the duke got pardoned and he undeniably participated in a rebellion, at this point unless we can really sell a grandfather clause people are going to be pissed at the arbitrariness even if we do push it through.

You make your way over to Mr baker who see you as you approach and wave off the men standing near him. “Mr Drayton, fine work in Clarks landing” He offers a handshake which you take “Thank you Mr baker you seem upset. Is it the duke over there?” You gesture to Duke mason “That horseshit? I'm mad about it but no that's not what has me so upset” He pulls out a flask taking a long draw from it “While you were in Clarks landing did you happen to find a large stockpile of grain?” You shake you head “No I did see any grain stockpiles” He grimaces “That makes you and every other officer in the city turns out the pretender sold most of last years grain stock to buy weapons” He leans in closer to you “We figured it was going to be a hard summer and fall originally but we thought once we captured the grain stockpile we would be able to scrap by but now?” He leans back and sighs “We've got a bunch of new mouths to feed in the south and barely enough grain for those in the north and half our damn farmers killing eachother”

The thing being said earlier.
>>
>>5972027
>offer a solution (write in)

Could we perhaps take some loans to buy grain from somewhere else (or just straight up ask for the grain) and use the weaponry the king bought as collateral? Or hell instead of weaponry we could use some of the kings assets I'm sure the guy has more than enough in valuables and property to cover any loans we would need especially since we took effort to limit looting.

Also this raises a question if we are screwed on grain and the monarchists were about to be screwed on grain then what's going on in the junta? Surely they must be suffering from similar issues as well without outside interference?
>>
>>5972075
>>5972182
supporting, though "those 20 years are going to be a lot harder for old Elric than I initially had in mind. Oh well, he'll get the same rations as any other prisoner. Though I suppose now I know why he expected we were going to hang him."
>>
You look to Mr Baker “surely we haven't run out of credit or we could liquidate some of Elrics assets?” “He shakes his head “money aint the problem out credit is good and with the mountains mostly back under our control we can sell goods on the global market.” He swigs from the flask again. “The real problem is there ain't enough grain to go around Aquila had a bad harvest last year and by the sounds of it they are going to have an even worse one this year we might be looking down the first real famine in the civilized world in nearly a hundred years” “You think for a moment ”The Kreshi have good harvest usually maybe we can buy from them?” He responds with another head shake. “Refusing any trade deals till we handle the last of the bandits in the mountains”

Well atleast we have some sort of solution just need to deal with the bandits first, maybe we could subsidized farmers to dedicate some of their production to generally unprofitable but high yield fast growing crops like rice or potatos in the mean time or do the same thing but more focused on temporarily growing food in land that normally grows cash crops just as a stop gap measure.

Anyway, I'm willing to back off on this idea a bit if it's not quite gonna go. Plus fuckin' Elric doomed millions of Ferrovians to famine so he's gonna have to take the fall for gross dereliction of duty even if he can skate on the rebellion charges.
>>
>>5972985
Then I recommend him to be stripped of all titles and put into the field to work until his death
>>
>>5973032
Yeah that's probably what 20 years imprisonment is going to look like for a lot of the nobility unless they give us very good reasons not to. I'm still overall in support of the maximum sentence, but if the rolls don't give us enough oomf then that's that.
Nobles like our own Baron who were more or less neutral and did the bare minimum to support the Pretender can probably keep their titles and pursue a more moderate form of land reform where they get paid somewhat for land thats sold to the peasants who work it. Speaking of, maybe some of those more tepid nobles have some supplies squirreled away that they hid from Elric? Might be a line of investigation.
>>
You sigh at the somewhat hopeless situation of the grain but decide its best to press forward. “I wanted to talk to you about potentially setting up a maximum sentence for the rebels when trials start” He looks at you suspiciously “How maximum?” You shift nervously “I was thinking 20 years followed by exile” He snorts “Some of these nobles we've captured have done some real awful things to the common folk of ferrovia Drayton even the more moderate members are demanding most of them should swing for what they have done” you sigh again “Are you amongst them?” He frowns and nods. while the plan for a maximum sentence isnt very popular with the communists maybe you can still convince the reformists

Before we leave Baker, tell him,
"I certainly understand where you're coming from. I can't disagree that he should hang, for selling the nation's grain, if nothing else. He stole from my plate and the plates of my men as much as he stole from the rest of the nation. To be honest, I hadn't been completely appraised of the situation before arriving here. Still, I hope you at least see the logic behind the maximum sentence for rebellion. It won't be used as a shield for other crimes, just a way to help convince our enemies to surrender if they haven't done anything specifically horrible otherwise. Not to mention, a legal framework through which to begin the land reform process that makes it obvious we're not motivated by base greed."

But anyway, we need to find out how the Duke got pardoned, and see what he can do to feed the Ferrovian People. He's still working Displaced Persons, I hope. That should put him in a position to make himself useful here.

We should speak to the queen last, once we know what cards are in our hand and which ones are even in the deck.

You mull over Mr Baker's decision before turning to him one last time "I certainly understand where you're coming from. I can't disagree that he should hang, for selling the nation's grain, if nothing else. He stole from my plate and the plates of my men as much as he stole from the rest of the nation.

He he crosses his arms huffing “Ill see if I can convince some of the moderates but the radicals would never agree to anything but the rope or bullet for the traitors”

You wish the depressed communist well and make your way over to duke mason whos chatting to several people. He notices your approach and waves you over “ This is Sir Drayton everyone or better know in the papers as the Crow” You chuckle at your apparent nickname “Glad to see your in better spirits and not a prisoner anymore Mason”

“So how did you manage to not be a prisoner anymore, Duke mason?” A twinge of pain on his face at the word duke “Well The queen in all her wisdom decided my selling of my lands was not legal as I sold them to an unofficial government in the form of her uncle. She then confiscated everything but my ducal capital and demoted me to a Baron. I didnt fight this in the courts so she freed me of any other legal problems other than probation. Oh and my family can no longer raise a houseguard.” you pat him on the shoulder “well congrats on atleast being given back some of your land Mason what have you been up to since I was last in the city?” He shrugs “Marshal alrics letting me do some instructional work with the new armored divisions and im trying to figure out how i'm going to pay to maintain my estate now” he waves as the crowd he was speaking to disperses leaving you and Mason alone/

The former duke looks around the room cautiously before leaning in to whisper to you “You know that coup attempt before your last visit, I got contacted by some folk after I got pardoned, they tried to talk me into doing something similar saying how the Reformists were holding the queen at gunpoint It was real odd I figured last time it was the reformists trying to frame the communists for something but that doesn't seem likely at this point”

You thank Mason for telling you bout this and turn to begin walking toward the throne to speak to Marshal Alric and the Queen. You've become accustomed to the stares and quick looks you receive from the nobles and other officials when you're at court. The fact your from simple stock and your deeds in the field are the cause of that but you notice someone in the crowd whose eyes will not leave you at all as you walk across the hall. It's a servant or at least someone dressed as one, their eyes tracking your every move until you make eye contact with them.

The servants eyes grow wide and they quickly turn begin moving through the crowd toward the exit with all haste.

The guy (probably) would of been fine if he just kept his cool a general notices you staring at him so what? Panicking and deciding to speed walk away is probably one of the worst things ya can do ere.

You move quickly after the man pushing your way through the crowd tracking him as he goes. Whoever this man is he is real shit at evasion as you manage to keep eyes on him until hes just at the door. You shout at the two queenguard at the door to grab him just as the crowd closes and you lose sight of him.

You manage to push past the crowd coming to find the queensguard who have managed to catch someone. That someone being a young army officer who is clearly not your target. Sprinting past the guards and their detainee you yell about them catching the wrong man. You expect to have lost your prey after making your way out the exit hallway out infront of the hotel turned palace you find him bent over hands on his knees panting only a couple dozen meters from the door. The thought this man is either really dumb or really out of shape occurs to you but you shrug and jog up to him revolver in hand

>arrest him
>interrogate him now
>write in

Im honestly impressed by how bad those middle rolls are
