Wysteria is deeply saddened to hear of conflict breaking out between these two old allies. We would hope that the return to Imperial prominence of the leaders of these rich and storied realms would be just cause for celebration and efforts for ever closer bonds between the peoples of the Empire; it was equally aspired to that two such peoples could find common ground to avert this most severe course of action. Sadly,it appears that conflict has reared its ugly visage once again and we are left to hear the drums of war.

Wysteria pledges formal neutrality in the course of this conflict, and hopes to make every effort to attain a diplomatic solution. The Wysteria Department of Legal and Foreign Affairs shall shortly be dispatching a diplomatic observation team to the front lines; following the troubling failure of an accord to be reached with Khabranth guaranteeing their safety of passage, they shall be passing through Minervan soil and shall have the dual mission of seeking diplomatic solutions while also offering a neutral perspective on the course of the conflict.

Missive from the Disciples regarding the declaration of war on the Kingdom of Minerva by the Kingdom of Khabranth

This is without a doubt a disturbing turn of events not only in this western region of the Empire but in the recent slew of conflicts that have festered across the entirety of our lands. It is our hope that a diplomatic resolution will be found at the end of this crisis. In the meantime however, the Disciples in the Kingdom of Minerva pledge their support to their liege, the Regent of Minerva, in any capacity possible.

Additionally we would warn any outsiders from approaching the buffer zone or the Isle of Mists during this time of uncertainty.

How long do you predict the war will go on for?

Update from the field:

Greetings allies,
After receiving extensive updates from our generals, our court thought it prudent to update the international community on the ongoing conflict in Western Khabranth.

Status of the war: cautiously optimistic for Minervan forces.

Recent activities: The first phase of the war, which has lasted an extensive period of time, was to engage in defensive preparation and recon. Minerva relied on its reserves in Fortuda to hold the castle in the event of an invasion, and began the process of constructing several small mobile ships to launch into the Fortuda Bay. This is because it feared losing major ships should sending them through the Valyrian Sea lead to complications in the canals in Khabranth. Without the ability to use its navies, Minerva relied on slow defensive posturing. However, the success of future offenses could open the door for Minerva revising this unwillingness to send her main fleets, however.

In the mean time, the Royal Minervan Cavalry marched through Valtoros, having received support and permission from its longtime ally and neighour. They arrived in the Tri-Town area, Oasae, which they then quickly occupied the long-quiet Khabranthian outpost. From there, they began a slow mobile operation into the north, into western Khabranth territories, to offer recon should Khabranth's forces march west towards Fortuda.

This strategy proved effective, as several small raiding parties were surveyed long before they could reach Fortuda, and they were little match for the immense defenses of the city.

Fortuda's real liability was from the sea, so prudent effort to launch those small ships was a high priority. Fortunately, Khabranth's efforts have been defensive as well. This gave Minerva the time it needed to prepare for its offense.

As the months past, Minerva fielded a unified national army, and marched them through its northern lands, Plures Napiskea. They met up and reinforced the Fortudan reserves, which by then had only faced a few raids.

Casualities have so far been minimal, with no major confrontations on sea or on land. However, some small settlements on the fringes of Fortuda have faced night-time raids that have left a few farmlands torched, and a few guard brigades have been captured. With the core Minervan Army fielded though, Minerva is confident casualties in her national borders will slow down or stop.

Next phase: The Khalinar Offence

Small reserve brigades from New Thoth have met with the Royal Minervan Cavalry, which will play the role of recon as the Royal Minervan Army marches eastward. The target of this offense is Khalinar itself, which seemed unable to defend Gimpy's incursions in their earlier conflict. Minerva has sent word to Khabranth through formal diplomatic channels, requesting a gentlemenly conflict. Minerva promised to field her armies on the outskirts of Khabranth's capital, in hopes Khabranth will do the same. This will be the first major battle in the conflict, and the hope is by doing so formally and through traditional combat, the war will be won by one side soon.

Both sides are negotiating on a time for this conflict. The international community will be kept abreast.
