Creation of the Warriors
Once the nuclear missiles of the NATO and ACMF War had fallen upon the world in the year 2032, most countries had been torn apart by the nuclear winter and fallout that persisted through the 2030s and late 2040s. However, not all hope was lost; the islands of Japan, it seems, had escaped the worst of the conflict, but just barely. Those who rose from it’s ashes set out to scavenge and gather; to communicate and organize, in the hopes of rebuilding the land they once knew. One such example of this would be the Osaka Warriors, who had seized upon grandiose stockpiles of NATO armaments to use for this very purpose.
With a seemingly eternal grey cloud cover hovering in the cold, desolate sky, the Osaka Warriors made a move on, and settled down in a local town which would become their primary headquarters. In 2033, the Osaka Warriors began to expand out on the Northern Osaka border taking in what resources they could, be they weaponry or potential conscripts.
Turning into the year of 2034, the Osaka Warriors had then reached to a mountain area due north of Omaru point. Gathering whatever materials around, the Osaka Warriors began to fortify a plateau alongside the range; this encampment would become the optimistically named Fort Victory.
Once the year of 2034 ended, the mid 2030s to late 2040s saw the Osaka Warriors as a mighty militia of honourable and glorious people, who wanted to live on in a new Japan, driven primarily by the texts of old such as the philosophies of Confucius. The 2040s saw the end of the nuclear winter; the sun began to rise once more over the horizon. For the Osaka warriors, this symbolized a new era and new potential. With this, they renamed themselves to the Rising Sun Warriors.
Creations and Challenges
With the dawn of the new RSW, the society surrounding it began to change rapidly. In alignment with the classical teachings its leaders were fluent in, they set out to emulate the romanticized imagery of a feudal Japan that had preceded them. New roles were created within the group; a samurai caste was made, and a diplomatic wing of those who sought only peace, the Peace Walkers, was put to work. Powerful feudal lords known as the Daimyo began to dominate the politics of the group, themselves hiring the samurai as personal bodyguards.
In the peak of the 2040s, the RSW made contact with a small camp of refugees and former baseball players that had taken refuge in the old Omaru Point Recreational Facility. It was in these few years of the 2040s, that the RSW offered to help out refugees there via sending supplies of food, water, clothing and other sorts.
The Daimyo’s had reached the point of wishing to create something greater; plans were put forward for the creation of a new state, and with it a final unification of the islands once more.
Creation of the State
The RSW did not stop in Osaka. The surrounding areas north of Osaka would begin to fall under Rising Sun influence. Yet as the territory grew bigger, it was missing one crucial aspect of the feudal society which it sought to recreate; an Emperor. One of the more influential and powerful Daimyo’s, now known formally as Ebisu, would come to fill this role.
With the newly formed Ebisu Dynasty came the formalizing of the new state; those in power knew they did not seek to emulate so greatly the Japanese state that had preceded them, and decided upon a new name for their political entity: Shinsekai, “New World”. Yet as the state grew, so did tensions, until within a few years they had reached their melting point.
A year before the events of Osaka, the Shogun then, Doi Hideo, had expressed vehement disagreements with the Emperor’s leadership, specifically with the foreign policy of treatment towards westerners. Due to the Shogun’s near godly influence within Shinsekai, an anti western clique began to form. Eventually, the pro Shogun forces would march upon the Imperial Palace, the residency of the Emperor, and subsequently burn it down. Forces loyal to the Emperor rose in opposition to the Shogun’s rash and violent attack, and subsequently defeated the coup. One of the more prominent generals of the Loyalist forces, Ankuj Akira, would be greatly commended by the Emperor, and would later be chosen as the new Shogun.
The Emperor thusly recognized the gravity of both his position within Shinsekai’s political structure and the gravity of those around him; efforts were begun to decentralize power from the Emperor, and a new Imperial bureaucracy was created in order to help manage the ever growing state.
The Osaka Civil War
The RSW expanded out further into the Kansai Province, encountering NATO and USMC remnants gathered in old towns and camps; the RSW recognized the helpless situation these remnants had found themselves in, as well as the fact that their only potential hope for an ally within Japan were the Rising Sun. Attempted diplomacy was opened between the groups, yet it has until now bore no fruit.
Reaching into the 2050s, the RSW began to venture further south into Omaru in order to secure farmland and the potential of a rumoured medical facility.. This effort, however, would only serve to bring them to face their rising opposition in the country, the NJLF, or New Japanese Liberation Force; a harsh, and deadly faction whose goals; not entirely unlike the RSW’s, were to emulate a jingoistic and war hungry nationalist government of old. What brief diplomacy had occurred between the groups collapsed quickly.
The two most powerful entities within Japan would now engage in brutal conflict in order to secure the valuable resources surrounding Omaru, as well as to secure the future of Japan itself.
As the Civil War progressed, the RSW and the State was faced with a new challenge, alliances. Akira heavily strained Ebisu to ally with the NATO forces within Osaka, Ebisu pleaded and allowed the alliance to be created.
As the NJLF continued to pose a major threat to Osaka and the inhabitants there, the Emperor agreed for the NJLF and their Camp Commander to make a truce with the RSW in Osaka. Akira would lead the RSW in the meeting, as Camp Commander [SimplySurge] came into the fort, the two and a person from each side discussed terms for the truce, which led nowhere. The NJLF would leave empty handed and the RSW would let the out.
Ebisu, the Emperor, would resign as Emperor of Shinsekai State and would leave the Imperial Court in general, leaving the Court to vote for a new leader. At the moment, Akira took the position as Military Leader until the Court could agree and find a new leader for the State. Akira would however, reform some of the things within the State to make it a little less corrupt.
