The unification war

This was the war that unified the 3 major nations of Nylicert, creating the Mregian Empire. It lasted 30 years.   The year is 2794, Mregian and Vernan troops are amassing at the border between their two countries. They both have equal technology, but quite different cultures. Mregia has an advantage in sword combat, their warriors are highly trained in this regard, but their enemy has adapted to their neighbours over the years. Vernan troops wear the finest armour on the continent, and have put an emphasis on defence, rather than offence. This also gives them quite a strong metalworking industry and economy, their cities are surrounded by strong walls.   Mregia makes the first attack. The fighting lasts for 3 days straight, before they retreat back behind their lines to recover and count their dead. There isn't much room here for tactics or flanking maneuvers. The attacks keep up for the next 3 years, slowly pushing the Vernans back towards the river, and the castle that lies beyond it.   2796 - The Vernan army retreats across the river, where they've constructed a massive wall, and a few temporary bridges, which they promptly destroy, along the wall they have also placed cannons, which make getting close to the river quite difiicult.   Mregia soon brings in their own cannons, to tear down the wall.

The Conflict

Prelude

Queen Pevytos' son heads to the Vernan border to invade a new mine that Verna was building. He takes the mine, but is captured when the Vernan army retaliates. They execute him dishonourably and leave his corpse to rot. The Queen gets word of this, and is enraged, she orders all the houses to gather troops along the border, and sends a message to the King of Verna, asking him to give up half his land as reparations, or face an all out war. The King instead started reinforcing the border and preparing for an assault. This marked the beginning of the war.

Outcome

Much had been destroyed during the war, including many crop fields and farmland.

Aftermath

Many ruins and dangerous weaponry littered the countrysides, explosives, swords, crashed airships, and a few steam tanks.

Historical Significance

Legacy

Belligerents

Strength

Warrior culture, with a large strong army. The country is very feudalistic, with several very different royal families that rule different corners of the country, but all pledge allegiance to a monarch.

Casualties

Objectives

To get revenge for the dishonourable death of the Queens favourite son by conquering neighbouring countries once and for all.
Verna

Led by

Strength

Extremely good defences and industry. Vernans were a strong and hard nosed people, they weren't much for fighting and instead preferred to just build high walls and improve them to keep the Mregian horde out.   Many Vernan towns have at least a surrounding wall and a few tough gates to keep out enemies.

Casualties

Objectives

Defend Vernan land from invaders. Maybe gain more land if possible.
Kalgitia

Led by

Strength

Powerful Leromirs with large, well trained armies.

Casualties

Objectives

Take back the land that had been stolen.
