Main parties to vote against ADA
Today the main parties of the Duchies have all said they will vote against the ADA, This includes the Moderates, UoD and Liberals with The Left considering the law to see its stance.The Moderate leader in Anastasia said today "We believe the mayor has more than enough powers including extra immigration powers which no other Duchy has. It will not be productive to try to gain more and this issue was put to bed in an election. The independence extremists must realise Anastasia is not with them and voted against them .We must now unite to work with the powers we have to create a world class home of immigrants that can change with the cultures of those who arrive to create multicultural paradise for people coming into the Duchies."

Armed patrols of streets being
Armed patrols have began in ernest in all cities in the Duchies including Anastasia city with army assisting in the patrols as an emergency measure following the Roscoes bombing and the high terror threat level. Soldiers have been placed under the command of the Duchies High Police and sent in to assist local police authorities with a big focus in Anastasia where attacks are more likely. Numbers have not been confirmed for "national security reasons" nor has where armed police and soldiers under the emergency powers have been sent though extra heavily armed police have been spotted in Goudadam, Baltia , Porterdam, Hamborg , Castcon , Cair Para and the Hague. There has been extra security with armed police at all government buildings and major transport infrastructure such as train stations and airports.
The governments declared emergency powers may be kept for 2 weeks and must then pass a vote of the parliaments within 1 week to continue after 3 weeks.Under the powers citizens are expected to comply with any requests for search and ID and police and army operating under police have the right to search or ask for ID based on "reasonable suspicion" and suspicous behaviour grounds.The government said in a statement "The security of our country is essential to allow for freedom of citizens and their safety. Safety of the public from extremism and terrorism is our top priority and while the threat remains high we regrettably have had to temporarily evoke emergency powers to boost security around the nation, we hope this situation can be resolved quickly and ask all citizens co-operate with authorities for their safety and wellbeing. The extra presence is solely there to protect citizens from terror."

RE: The Tech Meeting
The front desk employee was on orders to look out for their Yosainese guest and bow appropiately upon here arrival. They wanted to treat their guest well this meeting was vital for their gaming business and expanding their mobile platforms. The campus was unlike any other with slides, toys, ping pong tables and break out rooms, they may have worked hard but they encouraged play and creativity too The receptionist said "Welcome of course they will be down in 5 minutes do you fancy a coffee or tea we have all types including green ones." The 5 minutes went and then Set Rubin and Asha Ophir came down and done a traditional Yosainese bow as well as a more casual greeting . They said "Welcome , how was your journey ,its been good working on our gaming project. Pretty soon we should be ready to announce for 2022 launch and preorders , shall we head upstairs."
RE: The Eighteenth of Brumaire
The car exploded outside the Roscoes killing several people , the death toll was soon counted at 19 with the store took out of commission due to the investigation. Headlines were soon coming out of a suspected terrorist attack at the Roscoes in Anastasia that also destroyed housing units. The major parties were quick to united and condemn the act . The Prime Minister John Peter Key announced the raising of the threat level authorising calling the military up to do foot patrols in key areas and being given extra powers to conduct random checks on people if they suspected they could be a threat or were acting suspicious with emergency power laws brought into effect. Immediately he contacted the Anastasia mayor and the cabinet and her were discussing the response to the situation in the Anastasia City.Quickly he was quoted saying "Today my fellow Duchians and Anastasian Duchians I bring bad news. Today we have raised the terror threat in Anastasia city and our nation after a callous act of terror and murder today. This act was the bombing of a Roscoes store, I utterly condemn this act of barbarity and murder against the Anastasian Duchians , we have word that at least 7 children were killed in this attack and that to me epitimises the selfishness of those who committed this act. You killed children, Duchian children , they may have only just arrived but they are make no mistake fellow Duchians and we mourn their deaths today. We will investigate, we will find you and when we find you I can assure you it will not end pleasantly for you. We will get our justice for the people you murdered and the population of Anastasians you seek to terrify. We will stand with the Anastasian government and people in not stopping until we find out who did this terrible disgusting act and find the animals who committed it. Terror will never go unpunished in the United Duchies. Thank you and goodnight." Other leaders backed the PM's tough stance and determination in his response to the terror attack with all of the major parties leaders standing on stage behind the PM. John Peter Key prepared for his visit to the scene and the hospital and families under police and military guard.

RE: European Great War/Reformations
Another alternative is a series of regional wars between nations who want that if a great war scenario doesn't make sense (.e the nations are too far apart that want to be involved etc.) Same for reformation too , maybe there would be multiple reformations that resulted in different splits like in real life.
RE: European Great War/Reformations
This would only be for nations that want to be part of said Great War hence this topic. This is to find out who would have wanted to have been involved in a great war so we can establish fronts etc.. .Perhaps it would make sense for it to be based around them main actors being nations that have been here at least 6 months or so to keep things semi-stable in terms of changes etc. Perhaps the regional history should be more broad than detail specific like who backed who etc what the generally accepted trigger or cause is rather than focusing on individual battles and minutia and do similar with stuff like reformation and religious wars etc then nations can fill in little details on their own like battles that happened in their territory.
European Great War/Reformations
Does anyone have a European Great War in their history and did one happen in history. Think it would be cool to have European great war with two sides like WW1 allies and a sorta axis like power. If so where would nations stand on it and which side would they have joined on and which side would have won. Which blocs would have formed?
Also would othewr wars like the religious wars between protestants and catholics have happened just like in real (i.e 100 years war for instance) and if so when. and whether a big reformation movement happened or it was more of a sorta many smaller national reformations with ideas eventually spreading out.
I'm thinking maybe 20's -40's woould be good for a great war in Europe of WW1 standard possibly ending up in a bloody stalemate with no victory for either side establishing Pax Europa peace due to countries culturally turning against mass wars as a result of the Great War.
