Indeed, our two longest and most steadfast allies, the Krom and the Makers, stand with us still.We have traded with many great civilizations this season, and learned many new secrets! But we have also put a new spin of our own upon it. Gentlemen - I give you our greatest achievement. Thanks to the secrets of the mages, we have figured out a new way to revive old technology."The Clan Chief rips away a tarp to reveal the previously concealed shape underneath. It is strange - covered with twisting fungus, over a metal frame. A mix of rust red and fungal white combine, blooming and twisting in strange ways. It is unclear whether it is sinister or glorious, or both. But whatever it is, it is a marvel of engineering and magic both."This is our new support to our soldiers. Our new, strong ally on the front lines. Gentlemen... I give you the COGANID! Let this be the dawn of a new era! Let all men unite and share their knowledge! We are the inheritors of RustHolme!

When confronted with war, common strategies involve holing up until some help arrives or diverts the enemy. Alliances are generally well structured so there is no misunderstanding; The most support we can provide is economic. The people of this nation are capitalistic by nature. There are a special class of people devoted to diplomatic relations, with extensive schooling being required. It is said that part of this schooling involve more mystical arts.

The Millions. Much faster than the fastest scribes. The United Collectives of Erbast had become a valued trading partner with the members of CogHolme. It would be difficult, but only the people of the Cog could possibly develop printing technology. The ruins of their dead oppressors held the secrets. They merely needed to reach out and take them. He signed the treaty. Masonry for basic medicine, something his people badly needed. Mining techniques from the ancient reactivated mines in return for the technology of paper now, and the promise of the Printing Press when it was redeveloped.

Yet, there still numerous enclaves of dissidents who refused to accept the legitimacy of the Grand Commissar’s son.

Once again, the Ministry for Economic Development comes to the fore and suggests to the new Grand Commissar that the government should help private interests establish a permanent trading route between the UCE and Mon’Grayr. Kelnitz approves of the suggestion and directs the Ministry to make it happen. Furthermore, Kelnitz directs the Ministry to open up trade negotiations with Inferno, a strong nation to the north. He suggests trading their knowledge of paper and the printing press for their knowledge of cartography, which is rumoured to be excellent.The UCE’s Army has always harboured a strong desire to remain at the forefront of military technology and equipment, and thus spends a fair amount of its annual resources on various research and development projects. One project in particular that caught the eyes of the High Command Committee was the notion that a stronger metal that iron could be created for use in both armour and weapons. Curious as to whether such a mystical metal could be created, they decided to focus their resources on this line of inquiry.1 Infrastructure/ Stability: Utilize the printing press to increase state centralization and establish government censors in independent printers2+3: Military tech: Develop steel4 Population: Expand to the west.

Things had gone well in the UCE since the start of his reign all those long years ago. Unfortunately, his calm mood was ruined by the sound of approaching foot-steps. He turned around wearily only to see the Minister of the newly renamed Ministry of Economic Excitement. “Here are the final details of the trade deal with the CogHolme people’s sire,” said the Minister in a deferential tone. “What are we trading again?” Asked Kelnitz, slightly annoyed. “We are trading our knowledge of ‘Austrian’ economics for their educational expertise and their knowledge of naval boarding sire.” Kelnitz nodded to himself, it was a fairly good deal. “Make it happen,” he said in a dismissive tone. The Minister, reading into the mood and tone of his Lord, took that cue to leave and finalize the deal.
