I have a question to you all regarding Occitania and Brecosta. It has been quite a long time ago that the player behind Occitania was last seen on the forum. Western Occitania is currently RPed by Serenierre, but what are we going to do with Eastern Occitania and the colony of former Occitania, Brecosta? When Occitania remains absent, also Eastern Occitania and Brecosta will have to become NPCs, but who is going to RP them? I know that at least one person on the forum will have strong objections against me becoming the main person behind Eastern Occitania, and he may not be the only one. Therefore, I think it would be better if I do not take up the task to RP Occitania and Brecosta as an NPC. But who else is going to do so? From an IC point of view, it looks to me that countries like Azraq, Natal and Pelasgia prefer to see Occitania leave Brecosta, because Occitania is a non-hymiary country. And of course Kadikistan would also prefer to see Occitania leave Brecosta, for its own particular reasons. Realisticly speaking, neither Eastern-Occitania nor Western-Occitania are in the position to keep Brecosta as a colony. Western-Occitania would not be able to keep it, because it is recovering from having been shot to a heap of debris. Eastern-Occitania could have kept it from the beginning, but also that country is in a rebuilding process after a deep economic recession, so on the longer run it would not be able to keep Brecosta as a colony. It should also be noted that the Camp Hill accords did not mention anything about the status of Brecosta, although it would have been most logical that it would have remained part of Eastern Occitania, because that country is the continuation of the Kingdom of Occitania. Anyway, like I already mentioned, Eastern Occitania won't be able to keep Brecosta on the long run according to me. My government would have told the Occitanian government behind the screens that it would be better for everyone to grant Brecosta independence, and to discuss that out with Azraq, Pelasgia, Gunnland and Natal (being the most important regional powers). And of course Kadikistan, but I think that I would informally discuss matters out with Azraq, Pelasgia, Gunnland and Natal first, and then, after having secured some support, with Kadikistan (of course with consideration for Kadikistani interests). Furthermore, Justosia cannot be ignored, either. What are your thoughts? @Justosia @Serenierre @Azraq Virumaa">@Virumaa @Natal @Gunnland @Pelasgia @Occitania @Touzen @Engellex W. Engell Republic">@W.
