In 461 Admiral Greer is pleased to be able to
pull 2 more armadas from reserve at the Tefnut system to reinforce
the entry point to our core and the keep the enemy from our
home system of Awenn. With the battle to push the gas bags
from these systems near our core going se well, he is finally
able to give some time and effort to other fronts that had
When he accesses intelligence reports about the strength
of the Auarhciniala fleet he is saddened to see the results.
We have 437 ships while the gas bags are still fielding 2,460
ships. Nearly half of their entire fleet is stationed at Joseki
facing our meager force of 102 ships. Admiral Greer simply
shakes his head in disgust. His meager force is nearly than
25% of his entire fleet! How in tarnation am I expected to
defeat an enemy that can field such a massive force? Someday
soon I will have to provide enough ships to Joseki so we can
try repeat what we did in Waage.
Later in the year the defender of Waage attack the gas bag
colony of Mu Veloru I defeat and destroy the remaining 42
enemy warships stationed there and then bomb their colony
out of existence. In return, the gas bags attack our frontier
system of Whynil II and then bomb our colony out of existence.
A one for one exchange in controlled worlds. We will NOT survive
if we cannot improve these odds a bit more.
The war continues as in 462, Admiral Greer’s plan to
begin moving on the offensive and expand the secure perimeter
of our core begins to take shape. The defenders of Tefnut
follings admiral Greer’s ambitious plan to expand launch
an attack against Archid I. They quickly destroy the planets
defenses losing 12 of ships in the battle and then bomb the
colony. Following the earlier plan to clear the near core
worlds of gas bag colonies, that will allow the expansion
of the core, the defenders of Waage continue their assault
by launching an attack against Mu Veloru IV and then bombing
that colony, nearly destroying everything there. For enemy
action, they attack us in the Indactyl system and then bomb
our colony of Indactyl V destroying the colony killing every
man woman and child once again.
In 463 Admiral Greer pulls an armada out of reserve at Tefnut
along with one army. 134 enemy ships engage our forces at
Archid and the resulting battle is both swift and fierce.
Every enemy warship is destroyed and we lose a mere 11 ships
in the action. Yet one more major victory to add to our growing
tally of victories, and yet there is still no significant
change in our strategic situation. Having beaten the space
bound defenders of Archid II, we land an army there and take
the colony with little enemy resistance.
Continueing the battle in Mu Veloru, the defenders of Waage
assault the colony of Mu Veloru IV once again. This time,
the bombardment finishes the job that they started last year.
The Mu Veloru system is finally purged of our enemy and only
one system remains to be cleared before the near core can
officially become a part of the new expanded core!
For the next two years the campaign to expand the core continues
as the defenders of Tefnut attack and then successfully invade
the colony of Archid III and then bomb Archid I once again,
this time destroying the entire colony. In 465 the same year
that Archid I is destroyed, the defenders of Waage assault
the gas bag world of Fakar IV and then bomb the world in their
final push to purge this sector an effectively complete their
With his campaign to expand the core going well with few
losses, Admiral Greer feels safe enough to dispatch a new
short range armada to Joseki bringing the force there just
one step closer to the point where they will begin engaging
the massive fleet arrayed against them there.
