OOC: I thought this would be a nice RP justification to claim more land. Besides, I thought it would be appropriate to post a topic about it so that other nations could gauge their responses and such to my expansionism.
Ragnar, Admiral of the Asendavian fleet, and acting High Commander, steps into the room. “My king, we need more land.”
"And why is this Ragnar? Jon responds as he looks up.
“To keep up with the production of our military of course. In specifics, I was thinking the islands to the east of us. They are unpopulated and ripe for the taking. I was also thinking of taking some land in Gondwana.”
“Are you mad? The islands to our east sound fine but land in Gondwana? Setzna and Stratarin in particular would be suspicious, not to mention the rest of the SEPC and possibly the international community as well. What would your purpose for land in Gondwana be anyway?” Jon replies as he starts to glare at Ragnar.
“As long as we keep a small military force there and GENTLY remove the natives from the land in Gondwana, we should be fine. As to the other nations, we could tell them that we don’t intend it to be for military use, which will be true. I intend the land to be used to house more civilians and expand all of our industries. I’ve heard the land there is quite rich in minerals and lumber, those would be quite important for infrastructure and possibly even our military.”
“Fine!” Jon snaps as he sits back down, “Ready up the navy and some settlers. Be extra damn careful, I don’t want to anger anyone else any further.”
“Yes my king,” Ragnar replies as he leaves the room.
