The odd bird amongst the states of the shattered Flag of Griffonian Empire Griffonian Empire, the Skyfall Trade Federation is a mercantile coalition of towns and companies that has prospered while the Empire has declined. Yet even the Federation has its issues, such as a deep class divide.

The Trade Federation is currently standing at a crossroads, its future might be a model for all of Griffonia, or a cautionary tale about how to ruin prosperity.

Lore[]

An Imperial Trade Port[]

Skyfall was once an Imperial Free City during the rise of the Flag of Griffonian Empire Griffonian Empire over the continent. It becomes a bustling and major trade port. It even becomes the most profitable port in Griffonia, and maybe the world. With Skyfall becoming a major port city of the Empire. It also becomes the main dock of the Imperial Navy and home of their operations. Under the Empire's reign, it prospered and industrialized and became one of the first industrialized nations in Griffonia. In 977 ALB, a businessgriff and industrialist named Ghislain Guichard was elected as mayor and continued to make Skyfall a roaring trade port.

Ghislain Guichard, leader of the Skyfall Trade Federation

The Revolution[]

In 978ALB when the Republican Revolution under Alexander Kemerskai took place, Skyfall was now facing a popular insurrection in the city. Guichard sees this opportunity to seize power and declare Skyfall as its independent nation by initially siding with the Republicans and devising a plan with them to seize the Imperial Fleet by killing the Imperial Garrison there. After the plan to seize the navy, Ghislain showed his true face and sent mercenaries to kill the Republicans he once helped and declare Skyfall as its independent Federation of Merchants, bussinessgriffs, and capitalists.

After the Revolution and the Start of Iron Rule[]

Now that the Republicans have been slaughtered and only Ghislain in charge. He started to crush all opposition and resistance against him to secure his leadership and banning all trade unions for the reasons of stability and peace but in return earning the nickname of "The Most Hated Griffon in Griffonia" and 'Iron Chancellor." After its independence, Skyfall prosper and the economy boomed under his leadership while Griffonia declines around them but even this has its side effects. Prosperity in Skyfall is only centralized and concentrated in the upper class of Skyfall. Capitalists, businessgriffs, Crime Lords, etc grow wealthy and had an abundance of wealth while the common workgriff suffers and stays in poverty. The economic, social, political inequalities in Skyfall are showing themselves plainly as day. As Ghislain ages by the day, his rule will end soon, and everygriff knows that and when he dies, any group or organization will seize the moment to control Skyfall for themselves.

Starting Situation[]

Skyfall is a coastal nation on the west of Griffonia. Skyfall starts as a relatively industrialized nation with 22 factories (6 military factories, 9 civilian, and 7 naval dockyards). They border the nations of Flag of Township of Fezera Township of Fezera,Flag of County of Greifwald County of Greifwald, and Flag of Grand Duchy of Feathisia Grand Duchy of Feathisia.


Military[]

Skyfall starts out with an army of 7 Infantry Divisions, 2 Griffonian Knights Divisions, 1 Marine Division and 1 Light Tank Division. This adds up to a total of 68k Ponypower in the field. In the Navy, they have 9 Destroyers, 3 Light Cruisers, 2 Heavy Cruisers, 5 Battlecruisers, and 6 Battleships, adding up to 49k Ponypower. In the airforce, they have only 50 fighter planes and 40 tatical bombers, adding up to 2k ponypower in the Airforce.


Threats and Opportunities[]

  • Flag of Haukland Haukland and Flag of Township of Fezera Fezera - these two neighbors can be annexed, peacefully or militarily, via political focuses, providing needed extra factories and resources. More importantly, Skyfall will receive cores for these territories, strengthening its weak population base.
  • The Flag of Griffonian Empire Griffonian Empire is Skyfall's chief threat. One it has reunited its loose central vassals into a state, its first step of reconquest will be Skyfall if the Archon is the regent. If the Duchess is regent then Skyfall will be attacked much later along with the rest of western Griffonia. Although Skyfall can industrially match the Empire, it will struggle to project its low manpower effectively in an offensive push into Griffonian territory against more numerous Empire forces.
  • The Flag of Kingdom of Aquileia Aquileia is close to Skyfall, and will eventually seek to enforce its claims against Fezera, (which Skyfall will have integrated). However a Democratic Aquileia will invite Skyfall to join the Entente, providing a strong bulwark against the Griffonian Empire, and preventing claims as long as Skyfall remains in the faction.
  • The Flag of Griffonian Republic Griffonian Republic to the North is a likely ally, and may recruit Skyfall into its Pan-Griffonian Republic, or it may join Aquileia in the Entente if it forms. However this aid is unlikely to arrive quickly enough and its limited military strength will leave it struggling to hold against the greater Griffonian Empire.
  • Flag of County of Greifwald County of Greifwald has little interaction with Skyfall, despite being a neighbour. However a non-aligned Greifwald will seek a guarantee from either Aquileia or the Griffonian Empire which can deter Skyfall from attacking. A Supremacy Greifwald will eventually join the Griffonian Empire which can provide disastrous if the extended frontline is not prepared for.
  • Trade Partners - The Open For Business! focus will offer nations around the world opportunities to trade with Skyfall, in the event of a war, every trade partner can immediately provide a volunteer division for the war.

The Iron Chancellor
  • Political Power Gain: +10.0%
  • Stability: +15.0%
  • Surrender Limit: +20.0%

When the Republican Uprising threw the Griffonian Empire into chaos, Skyfall, the Imperial Fleet's main naval base, threatened to get ruined in the ensuing anarchy. Fortunately, Chancellor Guichard's decisive action saved the city from the ruin and conflict that consumed the heart of the Empire. The griffon assumed full and absolute control over Skyfall, but his firm claw guided the city away from the brink of destruction.

In the years that followed, Guichard ruthlessly crushed any opposition to his rule, both from Republican hopefuls and Imperial loyalists, earning him the nickname of 'Iron Chancellor'. However, his clear vision and indominable purpose managed to not only secure Skyfall's sovereignty, but turn it into an oasis of peace and prosperity in the war-torn lands of Griffonia. Although the light in his eyes still shine brightly, the iron chancellor is getting rusty, leaving many to fear for Skyfall's future.

The Biggest City in Little Griffonia

  • Resources to Market: +15.0%
  • Trade deal opinion factor: -5.0%

Just as Griffenheim is the proud political heart of Griffonia, and Griffonstone its ancient spiritual heart, Skyfall is the bustling heart of trade on the continent. Vessels from all four corners of our planet find their way to our harbour, where merchants buy the bulk of the goods to be distributed throughout the Heartlands.

Many of the more exotic artifacts and produce is sold directly in the crowded shopping streets and market squares of the city. And any being who visits our city will marvel at the sheer diversity of peoples and wares that Skyfall offers, instilling desires they didn't know they could have. Of course, what is bought and sold in the city ultimately matters little, as long as a portion of that unfathomable wealth reaches our treasury.

Social Inequality
  • Daily Political Power Gain: -0.15
  • Recruitable Population Factor: -20%
  • Stability: -50.0%
  • Daily Harmony Support: +0.01
  • Daily Communism Support: +0.01
  • Daily Supremacy Support: +0.01

While Skyfall has, for the most part managed to avoid the issues that plague the rest of Griffonia, its unique way of governing is not without its flaws. Although embracing capitalism has made Skyfall incredibly wealthy, its prosperity has not been distributed evenly across the population of the Federation.

Without any restrictions to trade, local manufacturing and agriculture have the impossible task of competing with the entire world. Many non-trading businesses failed, leaving many griffons without a livelihood, especially outside of Skyfall itself. This social and economic inequality will continue to take its toll on the populace, until some sort of solution is found.

De Handelsraad van Skyfall

Born: 15th of March, 914 in Skyfall City

Nickname: The Most Hated Griffon in Griffonia
Biography: Ghislain Guichard was born sixth child to a Feathesian noblechick and a prominent industrialist. Young Ghislain did well in school, particularly in regards to mathematics he particularly loved. Being sixth in line, nogriff believed that he would gain much of an inheritance and so some pushed him to join the imperial army as many in his situation do. But this was not to be Ghislain’s fate. When he was twenty-four, and just out of studying at Romau university, he asked his father's permission to take over the running of an unprofitable cloth mill that the family-owned in the countryside, and had planned to shut down. His father instead loaned his son the money to buy the factory from him and made him pay off the debt. Ghislain threw himself into his work and, within a year, he had paid back his father's loan. Soon enough, he was buying up smaller factories in the countryside and consolidating his financial power. One by one he even bought out his brothers, showing a complete disregard for such weak concepts as "family", preferring to indulge in the pursuit of money instead.

While the whole of Skyfall knew Guichard the businessgriff, they were about to meet a side to him that might have been even scarier. For in 977, Guichard was elected as mayor of the Free City of Skyfall. Austere, he immediately began to roll back privileges for many Imperial nobles and the military, causing Griffenheim more than once to threaten to revoke Skyfall's imperial charter. But everything changed in 978. When Kemerskai launched his coup in Griffenheim, none of the Skyfallian elite was truly on his side but faced with popular uprisings in the city, Guichard decided on a daring plan. Contacting the local republicans in Skyfall he expressed sympathies for their cause and told them how he could assist in taking control of the Imperial fleet. After the republicans had fought for it, Guichard sent in a group of mercenaries and slaughtered them all. He went on to declare Skyfall’s full independence.

Few believed that the city could survive on its own but with guile and Guichard’s iron claw, the city thrived while their neighbours struggled.

At 93 years old, Guichard still rules but he can't be immortal... Can he?

Born: 5th of October 969 in Skyfall

Biography: Born the niece of Ghislain Guichard, Genevieve Guildedwing lived a wealthy but simple childhood. However, when 978 struck and that her uncle became the most hated griffon in Griffonia, her life fundamentally changed. While in no way his heiress, she was ostracised by many of her friends from loyalist families and isolated herself.

In 985, she stopped her studies out of a desire to become a priestess of Eyr. A year later, her parents relented and she began her initiation into the clergy. There, she was heavily involved in charitable activities and got to experience firstclaw the depth of misery of the lower classes in Skyfall. These experiences shook her to her core and in 989, she renounced her vows and returned to her family. She was introduced as a debutante and married, not into the nobility but into the Skyfall intelligentsia. She went on to study law and economics.

After her studies, she lived an active political life, penned several textbooks and mingled with various groups, even radical republicans and syndicalists without compromising herself. Over time, she had shed her image as Lady Little Guichard and had become a charismatic griff respected in her own right. Yet, it was through her family that she was co opted into the Trade Federation Council in 1006.Many thought that she would be molded into another one of the stuffy councillors but in less than two years, she had convinced one of the most stubborn griff in history to change course and eventually assumed the position of chancellor.

Genevieve made history but she has no desire to rest on her accomplishments.

Born: 4th of August 976

Biography: Born in 976 ALB to a poor family in Skyfall, faith has been a constant in Gertjan Desramaux's life. His father, a former member of the Imperial navy, retired from his position after Skyfall seized the fleet. Supporting his wife and child as a dock worker, the Desramauxs were rarely in a comfortable position, leaving a sour impression of the detached capitalists of Skyfall- in particular bankers- apon the young Gertjan. Taking to a temple at a young age- often visiting the local temple of Boreas with his mother- he never wavered in his belief. As he matured, he found himself taking a growing interest in theology and law- as well as in media and oration. Finding inspiration in firebrand preaching, he quickly took an interest in politics as he grew into young adulthood.

At the age of twenty, Desramaux set off to Bruma, having been admitted to the city's university for a degree in law. During his studies of law, the young griffon worked as an editor for the university's newspaper. Never truly taking to the study of law, he failed his final exams three times over, finally resigning to return to his home city. With his newfound experience, he quickly realised that his birthplace had even more issues than he had before believed- not only were the people toiling under unfair oligarchs, but as a reaction, syndicalism was on the rise, and many of the city's poor had taken to debauched crime and prostitution out of desperation. Appalled by the state of his city, he began his career as a fiery orator, promoting faith in Boreas and traditional values- all while denouncing the capitalists who had let the city fall into such a state of moral decay. Desramaux found mass success after a series of banking scandals, which he used to propel himself- and the Boreaiste- into the public eye. Establishing themselves as the most prominent populist religious movement in the city. Despite push back from many, with time more within the temples, commoner and official, began to turn to the Boreaiste.

Following the Chancellor's attempt on his life, Desramaux fled into the countryside of Skyfall, taking refuge with a small contingency of loyalists. As large scale rioting began to erupt following the Chancellor's condition, Desramaux quickly set off to the city, knowing that whether the Chancellor was alive or not he needed to make a move- following the tumultous revolution, Desramaux took power, promising a bright future for the faithful of Skyfall...

De Handelsraad van Skyfall

Born: 30th of July 945 in Skyfall

Biography: Born into a family of industrialists, Heinrich Kessler never really knew anything but wealth. However, he had little interest in the enamel products of the family and was fascinated even as a fledgling by the new technology pouring into Skyfall from Equestria. And so, rather than continuing the family business, he branched out and opened his first car factory in 968, convinced that he was that the automobile was the vehicle of the future. His first models saw limited success outside of the nobility, professional racers and wealthy merchants class.

978 was a turning point for Kessler's business. Unable to access the Griffonian market, he was facing bankruptcy but crisis allowed him to reveal his business savvy. The Kessler model G which would go on to be nicknamed either the Guichard in Skyfall or the Grover elsewhere was a different beast entirely. Reliable, sturdy and most importantly affordable, it became a symbol of the success of the newly independent Skyfall and Kessler was celebrated by his compatriot.

Over time, Kessler grew distant of his benefactor Guichard and his policies. His business plans were hitting an obstacle: most workers were unable to buy his cars and trucks, even the most affordable and there was only so much cost-cutting he could do from factory efficiency. As a result, he began to become a major advocate of welfare and wage increase, not out of a desire for equality or a more just society but out of a savvy business strategy. And as chancellor, he may finally reach his goals.

Born: 17th of April 968 in Skyfall

Biography: Born into the immensely wealthy Von Hochsklaue family, Ferdinand enjoyed the best education and leisure money could buy throughout his childhood and teenage years. Very early on, he was thrust into the world of money and politics by his family. The Von Hochsklaue, due to their lowly rank, had many grievances with the privileges less successful families enjoyed at the Imperial Court. And so, when Ghislain Guichard seceded from the Empire, they became one of his primary backers.

When he graduated from the University of Skyfall, the young Ferdinand seemed to be the typical inept heir: obese, entitled, self-indulging and very elitist in all things. He was given a position at the Von Hochsklaue Bank and all thought he would be more of a liability than anything else. However, he proved himself to be a genius financier, expanding all accounts he was given responsibility for and frequently creating new ones. He also proved himself to be ruthless, sabotaging and professionally humiliating any banker who had wronged him, even if it had simply been rude to him.

At the beginning of the eleventh century, he had begun to assume a leading role in his family affairs and forged himself a new reputation, one of a philanthropist and a patron of the arts. The press did accuse him of self-dealing through his charitable foundations but libel suits quickly followed.

He joined the Trade Federation Council in 1002, taking over the seat of his old mother and after Guichard's death, schemed his way to chancellorship. Now, he stands ready to lead Skyfall and his family to heights never seen before.

Biography: Born in a family of sailors, Hyppolite Bechard had always had a passion for the sea. At 16, he enrolled into the royal navy and served well, enjoying the life at sea. During engagement with pirates, he proved himself to be a ruthless fighter and became his ship's most popular crewmember.

When the Aquileian Revolution erupted, their ship switched side temporarily but eventually, the crew mutinied. The ship went through several captains until Bechard finally took over. Rather than flee, he sailed back to Pridea, flying the republican navy flag, and in a feet of audacity, convinced several ships to join them into forming a pirate fleet. They sailed off after setting several ships on fire, preventing any pursuit.

Bechard tried his luck on the open seas and found his way to Haukland. He found great success, enough to become a problem for the Skyfallian navy. Eventually, he had a falling out with Meyer and so, he made a deal. He offered his services and that of his fleet to Skyfall as privateers in exchange for amnesty. The Skyfallian refused and so, Bechard decided to make a show of force and mounted a vast raid on a Skyfallian convoy. Skyfall ended up agreeing to the deal, with an unholy amount of ransom. Bechard didn't join alone and brought several ships as well as hundreds of pirates and renegades tired of the life on the run.

Over time, he diversified, hired mercenary companies and used his extensive connections to become an armsdealer. This gave him the assets to join the Council and eventually fight his way to chancellorship.

Biography: Walter Whitefeather was born the only son of a family of school teachers. Intelligent and a good student, he had the chance to study chemistry in Yale. Promised to a bright future, his scholarship was discontinued due to the Griffonian Revolution and he was forced to continue his studies in Skyfall. After graduation, he joined a promising chemical company which he left due to personal differences. And so he was reduced to follow in his parent's pawsteps : teaching.

This could have been the end of the story for Walter but one of his student - a young griff involved with the Skyfall mob - sought his help after getting in trouble over opium quality. Against expectation, Walter agreed and after seeing the kind of money there was in the opium trade, he began to involve himself more directly. What happened next is shrouded in mystery but the simple school teacher proved himself to be a brutally effective criminal. Without ever putting himself in harm's way, he managed to kill his competition, rose in the ranks and eventually took over. Quietly and effectively, he began to enter the wealthy circles of the city though he was always the odd griff out and few doubted the morally grey ways he became rich while officially owning simple businesses such as the most profitable taxi company in the world.

After the death of the Ghislain Guichard and surfing on the wave of his Golden Griffon Cigarettes brand, he sought the ultimate position: the chancellorship of the Trade Federation. Having once again crushed his competition, he now seeks to make full use of Skyfall's power to establish a Griffonian Drug Empire. Allegedly.

Biography:Clotbeak De Altesburg was born in 972  to what in Skyfall was considered a middle class family. His father owned a small dockyard in the city's port and was involved in the construction, repair, and refurbishment of ships; as well as having money invested in both trade and fishing. His mother was a commoner from the countryside who moved to the city to marry rich and live high, but ended up finding a true loving partner instead.

Clotbeak's father was a well known philanthropist in Skyfall for years before and after the birth of his son and cared immensely for the workers under his care. But the entire family's life was turned upside down when the revolution came to the continent. The revolutionary forces in the nation forced Clotbeak's father to flee to the shores of Nova Griffonia while the rest of the family hid in a small house that had been inherited from his mother's family. As war wracked the town, the De Altesburg family became famous in their small town for shielding Griffons of all manners from violence, including an Imperial commander who they even convinced to peacefully surrender to the Republicans, instead of sentencing his troops to certain death.

This was the world Clotbeak De Altesburg grew up in. As he matured he saw the republicans driven out, the rise of Guichard, as well as the increasing burden of the hated griff's age, his father had to stay in Nova Griffonia since Guichard thought him dangerous to have around. In 1000 Clotbeak moved back into the city of Skyfall and became linked with revolutionary groups. Often preferring reform to violence, the revolution following Guichard's death allowed him to rally together more moderate voices in Skyfall to establish, in his own words “A government ruling with a gentle wing, not with a sharpened claw”

Biography: Adalbert Growder was born to a moderately well off family in the city of Skyfall in 957. Born on the cusp of complete industrialization his father served as a banker working for one of the city's emerging capitalist magnates. His father considered himself an intellectual and always kept the house stocked with books of all types, of which Adalbert was a voracious reader. One day he began to read a specific book by a pony named Caramel Marks who advocated for the worker's revolution and liberation from the capitalistic upper classes. The rest of the Growder family considered this a phase and paid little heed to the amounts of socialist literature flowing into Adalbert's room.

When he was twenty years old, Growder decided he would make his breakout into the socialist world, attending a rally to call for the freedom of another prominent socialist of the time, with whom he would later butt heads, Hendrik Rosebeak. Growder had honed his skills as an orator as much as he could over the years and stood upon a crate of industrial parts and began to deliver a fiery speech against the oppressive capitalist system and spouted his own modifications of Marksian ideas to the griffons who had gathered that day.

As his speech gathered in intensity he began to rile the crowd to a fever pitch and at its climax, declared the beginning of the Skyfall revolution. Following this, he was quickly arrested by the police and thrown in a cell. Little did he know, but this would be a blessing in disguise. For the next year, he began work on a combination biography and treatise on his ideas which he would title “My Life, for and by the Revolution”, which quickly became popular amongst the radicals of the city as well as the other republican elements who recognized the power this griffon may have in his writings. But this potential was for naught as the events of 978 unfolded. Growder remained in his cell while his city became soaked in blood, revolutionary blood. The display of violence hardened Growder even further to his radical ideas.

After his release Growder would stay on the sidelines of revolutionary politics for a while, only emerging when he believed revolution was once more inevitable in Skyfall. And now he stands at the helm of his nation, which he would remake in his image.

Born: 1st of May 941

Biography: Entering the world in the year 941, Hendrik Rosebeak's entire life has been shaped by the industrial nature of the city he was born into. Skyfall was on the rise as an important center in Griffonia with its burgeoning industrial economy heralding the arrival of the industrial world to the rest of Griffonia. Born into a family of industrial laborers who had moved from the countryside to seize new opportunities in the bustling factories of the city. But the cruel reality of modern life soon fell upon them and they were subjected to terrible conditions within the city's factories.

After living through the life of labor for the first two decades of his life, Hendrik joined with a group of workers from various factories and industries throughout the city to form a league of workers and began distributing pamphlets, not on violent revolution, but encouraging reform. Hendrik at this point did not see the industrial world as evil, nor the system he lived in as wicked. But this was about to change.

One day while making a speech to his fellow workers, a group of thugs entered the factory. Calling themselves a “private police force” they stated they were there to arrest Rosebeak on charges including treason, murder, assault, and abuse of a young child who they refused to name and wouldn't take him to. Seeing what fate awaited him if he didn't take action, Rosebeak seized a nearby revolver and fired at the thugs. Buying time to flee, Rosebeak would sulk in and out of the city for many years. Hardening his revolutionary views and preparing for another rising. In 978 he got that chance, but with the failure of the republicans around the city Rosebeak called off his support before the most grievous wound was inflicted on the Republican forces, saving his underground movement from utter annihilation.

And now the most hated griffon is dead, and the aging Rosebeak rules. Ready to implement his dogma of true revolutionary thought.
