Landa IILanda II

“There was a sect among the people that worshipped the sun, but it was insignificant both in numbers and power when compared with the worship of the Priest-Kings who, whatever they were, were accorded the honors of divinity. Theirs, it seems, was the honor of being enshrined as the most ancient gods of Gor, and in time of danger a prayer to the Priest-Kings might escape the lips of even the bravest men.”
(Tarnsman of Gor page 29/9)

Members of the council of Landa, two months ago I came to this House to speak to you about the state of the city of Landa. We met then in time of war. Tonight, we meet in a world blessed by the promise of peace.

From the moment Operation “Southern Trade Alliance” commenced on the 1st Day, First Hand of Month of Hesius, Year of Ar 10163, the time the ballistas fell silent at midnight one day ago, this nation has watched its sons and daughters with pride, watched over them with prayer. As Commander in Chief, I can report to you our armed forces fought with honor and valor. And as Ubar, I can report to Landa: the aggression is defeated. The war is over.

This is a diplomatic victory not only for Landa but for the south of Gor. A victory for unprecedented cooperation and diplomacy. It is a victory for the rule of law and for what is right.

And recognizing this was a coalition effort, let us not forget the forces of Treve which had been paid and all the others whose leadership played such a vital role. And most importantly, most importantly of all, all those who served in the field.

I thank the Members of this Council support here for our troops in battle was overwhelming. And above all, I thank those whose unfailing love and support sustained our courageous men and women: I thank the citizen of Landa.

Our uncommon coalition must now work in common purpose: to forge a future that should never again be held hostage to the darker side of human nature.

Tonight in the so called Southern Trade Alliance, also known as the Vosk League, Xavier, the sleen of Meqara, walks amidst ruin. His war machine is crushed. His people have been lied to, denied the truth. And when his defeated legions come home, all his people will see and feel the havoc he has wrought.

First, we must work together to create shared security arrangements in the region. Our friends in the south and of the true and NEW SOUTHERN TRADE ALLIANCE that they will bear the bulk of the responsibility for regional security. But we want them to know that just as we stood with them to repel aggression, so now Landa stands ready to work with them to secure the peace. This does not mean stationing Landa ground forces in the Tahari or in the Schendi region, but it does mean Landanian participation in joint exercises involving both naval and ground forces.

And second, we must work to create new opportunities for peace and stability in the south of Gor. The tactics of terror of Fina lead absolutely nowhere. There can be no substitute for diplomacy.

Third, we must foster economic development for the sake of peace and progress. The south of Gor and the Tahari and the shores of the Thassa form a region rich in natural resources with a wealth of untapped human potential. Resources once squandered on military might must be redirected to more peaceful ends. We are already addressing the immediate economic consequences of the aggression of the Vosk league and their allies. Now, the challenge is to reach higher, to foster economic freedom and prosperity for all the people of the region.

To all the challenges that confront this region of the world there is no single solution, no solely Landanian answer. But we can make a difference. Landa will work tirelessly as a catalyst for positive change.

Tonight, as our troops begin to come home, let us recognize that the hard work of freedom still calls us forward. We’ve learned the hard lessons of history. The diplomatic victory over the Vosk League and its marionettes was not waged as “a war to end all wars.” Even the new world order cannot guarantee an era of perpetual peace.

So, to everyone reading here and everyone watching the events from afar, think about the men and women who participated. Let us honor them with our gratitude. Let us comfort the families of the fallen and remember each precious life lost.

We’re coming home now – proud, confident, heads high. There is much that we must do, at home and abroad. And we will do it. We are Landanians.

True Southern Trade Alliance Established

Monday, June 18th, 2012



It was on a road from Turia a message was intercepted.

The scroll was encrypted however the Turians are not known for their cyphers and encryption knowledge, so the code was easily broken.

The Message was revealed as a treaty and spoke of trade in the south, of stifling all trade with the main aim of driving down the salt and preserved fruit prices. If this was allowed to continue the Vosk league would control all trade south to north with their ally Turia .

The authors of this scroll were Fina and Thentis their ally in the south was Turia. The Turians once again showing their true colors for deceit and intrigue by not seeing the right path to take.

It was this scroll which compelled a few cities to get together and form a true SOUTHERN TRADE ALLIANCE. The formation in Landa bought together many states and tribes of the Tahari desert. Its aim to bring free trade across the southern region and allow trade to also flow north .

The tribes of the Tahari still have the old rivalry between Aretai and Kavar but on the issue of trade, the lifeblood of Gor they are united as one people. More cities join everyday , their envoys traveling many miles to pledge their allegiance to the true STA.

The aforementioned treacherous scroll fell into the hands of warriors of Landa. They were moving north to secure a route for trade from the southern trade alliance. This was accomplished when a force met them close to the Vosk. The force opposing Landa consisted of warriors from Turia and the vosk cities . This force was defeated by the glorious Landa warriors.

Commodities of salt and dates from the far south are once again flowing north as are slaves and dried bosk from the plains, and exotic spices and girls from the Shendi.

The Citizens of the TRUE SOUTHERN TRADE ALLIANCE, in league to form a more perfect coalition, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for trade with safe passage, promote the general well-being, and secure the Blessings of the Priest Kings to ourselves and our Posterity, do prescribe and validate this:

We proclaim to work together towards trade support to unify the south against invaders seen from any entity especially from the North and the Vosk region (as the false Southern Trade Alliance from Meqara is just a front organization of the Vosk League) that disrupts our mutual trade investments within our Ports, Cities and Oases, for peace and prosperity and the protection of our trade routes.
