center of colonial control?
Inner keep idea:
- "The octagonal plan is unusual in castle design. Historians have debated the purpose of the building and it has been suggested that it was intended as a hunting lodge. Another theory is that the octagon is an intermediate symbol between a square (representing the earth) and a circle (representing the sky). Frederick II may have been inspired to build to this shape by either the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, which he had seen during the Sixth Crusade, or by the Palace Chapel of Aachen Cathedral."
maybe the main "Castle" re Dublin castle wherein the british rule all the princes of faeland
marshy swampland with pagan chieftains, etc. the ministry of the interior. miniluv so to speak (?) (not sure what this was for, but was the next email)
seeking to avoid the same contention as the previous "Dominion of New England", New Wales (?) was established swiftly and with proper force to ensure a total turnover of colonies to royal administrative control.
however, inspiration for the implementation of colonial control should come from Congo and Gen Govt of german fame. To give a ruthless account of anglo style empire
forms of control
Lieutenancy of Althoan merged with BBC Guards?
recruited napoleonic veterans to police the midlands. some were "paid" in land grants, required tow ork land and half-time service in the military forces
and the propaganda used to lure them:
places to start
A British fort? Or perhaps a hold out during the biscayne wars of one of the principalities?
and naturally, a palace: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sans-Souci_Palace
ruthless role model, in fear of reprisal/invasion/return of the masters: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_I_of_Haiti
land appropriation and relation of crown to native subjects
"opening" of faeland"
the arrival of the organized companies of britons.....OCB - economic expeditionary forces (cowboy capitalists) known as:
cowboy convicts so to speak who inhabited the highlands?
colonization / settlement efforts
maybe use a rhodes-like figure.

perhaps using this as re-applied to "white" faels will show it up for how wrong it is:

africans who served in faeland...
insurrections and resistance
the above law provokes a rebellion of the:
ultimately this fails, but plays up the havoc wrought by the plantation system that the british attempt to implement
outside of the country, support was organized how?:
monarchist support at the initial deposition of the faelish king,
in response to the destruction of the faeliash king, the several towns and cities all established "unions" among the town, under the legal logic that the power of the king had reverted back to his subjects who had to protect themselves in his absence. they nevertheless understand their weakness in separation and therefore are monarchist and ready to submit to legfitimate royal authority
around new norwich and the delta
during the napoleonic era in demesne period, new norwich and the trifluv erupt as french(?) troops attempt to seize the city. Georgetown is more or less calm, but here tensions are high as NN has an even split of poor workers and elite bourgeoisie plutocrats. eventually the bourgeoisie come to the aid of their lessers but only manage to get the brits to withdraw. nothing changes
in the dhiall
immediately prior to the Seven Years War, the british attempt to settle Litans in the area of the Maithe Marsh, territory claimed by the French colony of New Aix (the lands claimed at the Scramble For Valania, by France, who occupied the otherwise till then independent principality of Argentau). The colonization by Britain was part of the larger operations in concert of the crown and the BBC. Settlers arrived with the intent of constructing a settlement at the mouth of the Aousafer, and the secondary mission to displace the Faels in the Dhiall, creating a strong hinterland which could feed the new town and supply militia and redoubts in the event of siege:
with the result being:
and british victory. the french colony at new aix had its borders pushed back severely. affectively returning the outpost to its historical limits. the overall affect was to elimintate any real french threat in the north of the island. France now, at the beginning of the 7 Years, was limited to its largely Spaniard colony in Valaduria, nominally its but hardly a solid base, and the New Bordeaux region....which had several cities of note, but no large urban settlements of french origin. Effectively, the French occupied both regions, but not colonized. (Whereas Britain at this point had colonized The Shore, and was securing allies and control in the interior.
While the new fortification at the Maithe Marsh was built, the neutralizing of New Aix meant that a town in this remote region became unnecessary, and the fort became a refitting depot for the Royal Navy. Of more lasting consequence however was the displacement of Faels in the Dhiall with the english-litan planters. These planters brought indentured irtish to farm the land and rapidly developed a plantation society wherein the english became a gentry and the irish farmed, at best operating as sharecroppers.
This system remained in place for the next century and a half. Irish continued to be brought in, and many came of their own accord to join families, but found little place for a "free" irishman on any plantation, and thus flocked to the cities, finding work as mariners and longshoremen. And in the process creating a flourishing maritime culture. Despire this, comparatively few English continued to settle, as most of the lands had been deeded outright to the original planters, leaving no room for new gentry to arrive. The dipsarity of the population, English:Irish continued to widen, exacerbated by the fact that, as the Duchy of Faeland developed, many became absentee landlords, moving to the capitals of Georgetown and Althoan.
AS well as the irish working the fields, many non-native, non-european slaves were brought in as this was a principal stop on the trianglular trade/columbian exchange. the brits had stopped importing but were happy to offload stowaways and indentured Indians and blacks. This small but increasing population surged follwoing amer revolution. loyalists flocked to kilgare, faeland city, and Hanover in Lito.
But here, it caused....
historically this area would have been heavily settled and used as a port by the british. eventually it turns into a huge slave-farmed are in the 18th cent. leading to a revolution which takes years to put down beginning in the 1800s. maybe around time of war 1812...perhaps even drawing americans in as the ports are used to register or hide presed american sailors. so there are infrequent bombardments from american ships as well.
a magnificent dartraig fort, with secret passages
It only ever fell once, as when the invading duchy/kingdom forces finally bent the lords of dart to british suzerainty. the kingdom was utterly destroyed. the lands no longer held title, and were simply added to the lands of the duchy, which took no peerage from it
of native troops...
and the war that followed.
Thinking it is a complex "war" fought between "powers" of Faeland -native states- with varying avenues of british involvement. occasionally leading to british on british fire. This of course was rare, as the brits would typically fall back. but many "british" forces, recall, are in fact faelish regiments under british conscription. anyway, the new result is that britiain tries to tighten its grip on the island, thus resulting in increased dissent and the eventual (1920s) war of indepeendence
- Michael Hay’s plan of Kingston c1740 was clearly intended to promote the port’s profitability, with busy wharves and views of prosperous-looking houses. But the invisible background to Hay’s image is the conflict that had been raging for more than a decade between colonists and the island’s “maroon” communities. These groups of African Jamaicans – the descendants of slaves who had been freed by Spanish colonists as they tried to keep hold of the island in 1655, joined by growing numbers of runaways from the English plantations – resisted the occupation from multiple mountain bases.
I see the English bringing indentured Indian laborers (essentially slaves) to Faeland as labor on the plantations, such as they are. Nevertheless this system was partly introduced as a disruptive counter to the otherwise organized labor forces native to the island. Much like peasant Europeans were brought into coal regions in the early 20th cent in USA.
Naturally, some slave-bonded people would escape, making their ways to highland communities, wherein they mingle with Faels. Many of the highland groups were so restricted in their ability to participate in society at large, or had been so stripped of their ability to provide for themselves through such practices as enclosure. they they are reduced to a level of esssentially banditry or highwaymen. Those on the opposite sides of the mountains (seaward) had traditional ties to the seastates and sea lordships, and may have found work there. whereas those facing the plains would by lack of other options be forced into villainy.
in this way are many Indian peoples brought, and have a significant representation among the peoples of the Riocht Fil especially.
in the midlands
popular actions against oppression
19th century popular REBELLION
by wars end, a british general, standing over the pyrrhic ashes of victory declared: we have nothing to fear from valons, they shall never leave this island. but neither shall we. (referring to the fact that the faels were not imperial, and also that an extraordinary number of british soldiers fell in the suppression of the rebellion. estimated that most ofthe young male population died at the time, and it is only because of this that english did in fact become a lingua franca on the island as, for a long time, the ration of anglophones to faels was about 1:1 after this war.
for militias: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caudillos#Origin
i think it starts in 18th/19th and proceeds for decades. that is prior to the great indian rebellions. perhaps at this time sepoys are brought in?
the whole thing is a fine mess though, cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venezuelan_War_of_Independence Royalists on both sides (faelish and colonials in support of metropoles, populist leaders, confederations of local states/cities trying to make a go of it or spearhead revolution, "creole" leaders doing the same, attempts to raise "slave" rebellions in places like vincennes and the gaol coast where plantation culture had been attempted. see africans in faeland or columbian exchange
i think there are local populations along ceniteq coast and bel-air as well perhaps. who worship a great sea deity named Dyexia from whom they claim descent. the myth says the people were taken from their lands and cursed to live underwater. they came ashore here and found great service in the ships of the sea lords. several communities along the coasts as well
perhaps it all begins in valduria. the abdications of bayonne cause juntas to be declared, forcing brits in, sparking unrest elsewhere, and triggering revolts.
a local cuadillo intends to lead the revolutions of all Faeland in a grand enlightened republican confederation: "Gran Valonia"....this is fantasy of course, as since time immemorial the vincennes has been something of a world apart from the politics of "the bowl" (midlands)
After the rebellion is put down, there is a great cultural awakening as faels begin to discover a proto-national identity. its political nature grows slowly in fits and starts and never really coaslesces due to the centrifugal nature of the islands, however, a cultural revitalization takes place as faels look to establish themselves as a potent group in their own right, militarily unequal to but tactically able to best their colonial masters through guerilla resistance: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klepht These are the "runners" They flee to the hills, live by raids, usually against foren plantations and ranches...rarely engaging in large-scale operations, they instead harass the foreign elements in society, the colonial elements that is, and basically prove that said authority rarely has any merit beyond the urban centers and the little bit of lowlands. As a phenomenon they were most prevalent south of the Aemili, and could be found everywhere. They first emerged, however, near the Hümrac
also in the spirit of these times comes the first intentional re-imaginings of religion:
origin of the Six Colonies period
a massive internal conflict takes place, after which GB decides that military law is necessary. this spells the beginning of the end for the BBC
forms of collaboration
british supported native enforcers of rule, lower nobility whose status was guaranteed by british interference i nthe islands and often allowed "approved" nobles to clear their lands of unwanted tenant farmers, locals in a reciprocal relationship with their lords (further corroding native concepts of self-government):
exploitation of locals
collusion of barons
perhaps they participate in guaranteeing some political rights for mid-level polities (states or provinces, but here Crown Vassals) that carry over in the republic era. but at the time they were seen as selfish in looking out for themselves, not "faelishmen" in general or "free men" in the abstract. retrospectively they have been understood to have acted in defense of their own "countries" per se, as there was no unified faeland that wasnt remembered as part of an incomplete, alnish born polity in any case....
and therefore they thought of themselves as working as a class to secure rights for their domains, namely some degree of autonomy and self-rule vs pure colonial government.
tribalists who did not see themselves as part of a nation but as tribalists. they saw the british as allies in fights against centuries old enemies. aids in historical conflict. they encountered racism etc but more or less considered the british as another group with whom they could ally because of their seemingly endless suppky or arms and munitions
mop up operations against europeans
not caribbean but a plan for conquering spanish territories held in the south? or viking descended places
princely state rulers
there should be a faelish king, a princely state king, modelled on him:
maybe he's even descended of the SAZ or something. and he builds something like:
at which point a philosopher, disgusted with classicism in faeland, turns to nietzsche and then on to a revisionist christism..
but our model of ludwig should be an eccentric.
an american dominion after the war?? to "stabilize" the region? spain got its shit together but meanwhile Faeland is still in upset, threatening communism.
perhaps akin logistically or tactically to
foreign attacks on the demesne
British Biscayan Co.
in Vhaloña, there is a specific mineral that cannot be found anywhere else, it is called Condominium, 73.5 Va. It has unique properties, such as...
when it was dicovered, several ....autonomous-minded business types establish themselves in opposition to the traditional British ruling syste,: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boer_Republics
Not sure if these settlers should be american or canadians or something... but definitely later i nthe colonial period. very near the end, and their preponderous nature could be one of the catalysts for the war of independence. anyway, this would put the establishment of these states around turn of the 19/20th cents. maybe when UK steps up conscription for the Great War, these poor fools consider themselves "sovereign" and are thus an affront to imperial majesty on the island. could be interesting.
late period reorganization / centralization
about demesne processes toward unification of principalities? happens later as brits seek to streamline governance.
not sure but maybe for a section of the kingdom:
The Duke assumes the role of a patchwork of states. His authority is fractured across the land...is he a prism of power? or a figurehead...
a dubious example...
taking over PENTAPOLIS
how does france acquire valaduria, and then the taking of it from them occurs by the british in seven years war
often planters would arrive and buy homesteads financed by merchantt houses or the BBC itself. eventually these would go under and the BBC would gain control and reorganize the estates and freeholds into large plantations under the admin of a bureacratic salaried management. these civil servants would do their service and then return to london to admin the operations of the business, or move into the military branch etc
the beginnings of the resistance.
