20190520_040757 by Charon, on FlickrAdministrator Torley: At the request of Pracka, this gathering has been called on this afternoon... representatives of the various Miltaries and news agencies... you may begin..
20190520_041007 by Charon, on FlickrTorley: As the one who called for this meeting.. Pracka, Leader of the Armata Alliance.. you have the floor
Pracka: *ahem* Many of you weren't there to see it personally, but pretty much all of you had your troops witness what happened in Basil last night.. A massive brawl between who knows how many armies... and it was all ruined when Imperiya forces carpet bombed the shit out of the place....
Jericho.. I knew something was terribly wrong when I saw one of your own troops chatting with a Black Legionnaire about how stupid this has become.. Thanks to the Lazaru Effect... we can never truly die.. so we fight for fun... but this isn't fun.. Imperiya has turned into a Monster, They outnumber Vaclav's Bratva by at least 3 to 1... and they're the next largest group..
But what if we banded together to give a kicking to them? Yes, they're Fking huge... if even half of the leaders in this room agreed to an alliance, we'd outnumber them and give them a taste of their own!
Vaclav, the leader of the Bratva, One of Imperiya's arch rivals joins the floor
20190520_041119 by Charon, on FlickrVaclav: I'm not opposed to the idea... but I have some concerns... namely... look across the floor at some of these smaller Clans... Insurgent? You want to talk about people crashing parties... no one does it more than them, not even Imperiya.... And The Hoplite Clan? Bruno... no offense, but A lot of my troops would have a lot of issues cooperating with you, they hate you..
Pracka: So your point is that you won't put the past behind you?
Vaclav: My point is that everyone here has someone else they don't like in the room. I see a lot of empty chairs here too.
that tells me more than a few leaders chose not to attend this meeting... There's no one here from the Syndicate,
Nor the Legion, the Reavers... A couple of us might agree to work together.. but calling for a "war against Imperiya" just isn't' going to work..
Suddenley, Otto, leader of the Krieger Clan teleports in.. Late
20190520_041230 by Charon, on FlickrOtto: Oh... uh... sorry, I'm late.
20190520_041526 by Charon, on FlickrPracka: Armata and Bratva will stand together, who else will join this Alliance?
Suddenly he's interrupted as another teleports in, it's an Imperiya Officer
20190520_042122 by Charon, on FlickrVoice from background What the fk? You weren't invited!
More teleport in, led by the huge Tachenko, one of their high commanders.
20190520_042217 by Charon, on FlickrTachenko: Why not us? Oh that's right... we didn't get an invite to your little club meeting!
20190520_042657 by Charon, on FlickrTachenko: So you come to Anwar to cry in front of the administrators, who don't care... and try to rile up an alliance of booty bothered losers against us? Newsflash... we've always been alone against the lot of you. And we still won. And we'll continue to win... You want my advice?... Get good... or get out of the game.
The Anwar Security officer squeezes between Tachenko and the ugly guy in the breather
ADU Sergeant: Alright... I think that's quite enough...
20190520_042851 by Charon, on Flickr
The Intruding Imperiya officers are forcibly teleported out of Anwar
20190520_043326 by Charon, on Flickr
A minute later, another Security officer runs in to the room
20190520_043557 by Charon, on FlickrADU Guard: Sergeant! incoming teleport signatures....
ADU Sergeant: Damn it... are these guys dense or what?...
Then out of nowhere, it's not the Imperiya returning...Rocket toting goons from the Black Legion teleport into the room.. It's an attack!
20190520_044256 by Charon, on Flickr
Rockets fly.. and people scatter
20190520_045051 by Charon, on Flickr
The benches explode, people are tossed, some are killed..
20190520_045051 by Charon, on Flickr
20190520_050339 by Charon, on Flickr.
Some teleport the hell out of there, while others try to stand and fight..
20190520_050728 by Charon, on Flickr
Bullets, Pulse rounds, rockets and debris fly every which way
20190520_051108 by Charon, on Flickr
Otto and Jericho bump into each other... and Otto quickly teleports home. While a blast of warp magic appears in the center of the room... and the horned and hulking figure of Charon, the warlord of the Black Legion appears...
20190520_051237 by Charon, on Flickr
Charon mows down Pracka and the Insurgent leader..
20190520_051405 by Charon, on Flickr
Before he can react... Another of Charon's minions warps into the room and cleaves him in half with an axe
20190520_051709 by Charon, on Flickr
Novus, the Echelon leader, GTFOs..
20190520_051712 by Charon, on Flickr
As do Kast and Bob... who've just kind of been spectating this whole time..
20190520_051957 by Charon, on Flickr
With everyone else either having fled or been killed, Charon approaches Torley,
20190520_052150 by Charon, on FlickrTorley: What the hell have you done?! Fiend!.... Leave this place at once!..
Charon: *Sarcastically* Oh? Well... I guess we have no choice but to Obey .. your highness....
Surprisngly... they warp out of Anwar without laying a hand on Torley...
20190520_052223 by Charon, on Flickr
Then... a giant molten fireball smashes through the wall, killing Torley in the collapse....

The Admin tower in Anwar is destroyed in a huge explosion...
Jessie War Journal
In War news... Various groups attempted to come together this week in Anwar to organize an Alliance against the Imperiya..the meeting was spoiled by the Black Legion who destroyed much of the Administration in a daring attack in an apparent attempt to disrupt the community. But it now appears their primary goal was to steal multiple Artifakts that were present during the gathering. True to the Legion's nature, they destroyed much of the city while they were there.
The only apparent result of the call for an Alliance.. is the Bratva and Armata have agreed to a temporary alliance. Pracka was among those taken out during the attack, and since coming back he has been noted by other figures in the community that he is quite sour towards the rest of them, perhaps because the Community failed to come together... or because he lost his signature Artifakt weapon to the Black Legion...
It is without a doubt that for this month at least... While the Imperiya still reigns supreme... the real winner this month is the Black Legion...Stay tuned for more Battleplate News as it happens.
