-- Summer of 1454 --
News of the fall of Fortress Renaiss had reached Sienna, the inhabitants of the city are nervous and frightened about the advance of the Imperial Army. The king had ordered the fortifications of the city to be strengthened and additional defensive modifications we're made by the military engineers. Meanwhile, the Royal Air Force with a total of 100 aircraft was stationed several miles from the city. The new temporary airbase was a small land concession given to the british by the king.
-- Lincliff --
Lincliff had underwent major if not complete changes ever since the British arrival in this world. The British government earlier just it had promised, built and improved the existing infrastructure of Lincliff.
The introduction of foreign conglomerates and stores began popping up in the streets. Brands like Mcdonalds and Starbucks which is american-based but multinational companies in its right, can be seen in the modernizing landscape of Lincliff.
The road pavement which was formerly just stone, was improved and cemented with an undergoing construction of a sewer system underground which is partially completed. The British had earlier denied releasing products that gives too much information about their technology, as such there are limitations of what the British could potentially export in Summerwyn.
But, British clothes can be seen now being sold on Lincliff, the local inhabitants had begun to love everything British. One could see how Lincliff had changed after the British arrival in one year. Street lights we're erected on the streets, phone booths we're also free from government technological censorship and the famous red telephone booths from London can now also be seen being operated in the newly-paved streets of Lincliff.
The cafe's of huge companies had also made their way onto the city, giving a new fresh atmosphere to the city's work scene. Every day, Starbucks are always packed by Lincliff consumers for their coffee. And a private initiative of British businessmen are investing onto a possible British privately-owned railway that connects Lincliff and Sienna. Currently, the dockyard in Lincliff is being improved and expanded by the British Government, a British embassy is also present in Sienna.
When the United Kingdom was transferred onto this world, they we're immediately met up with a problem; oil shortage. Oil is vital to the british economy and thus, using the oil stockpiles the government has left for 90 days, the government decided to raise oil prices and limit oil consumption for 90 days until they we're able to find a new source of oil in this world.
The government struck deals with the Republic of Italica and Kingdom of Summerwyn with mining and excavation rights to their respective territories in exchange of infrastracture development and military assistance agreements. The United Kingdom pledged to protect this two countries in case of war and is committed to their agreement.
The British government and private companies had simultaneous search and expeditions in the territories of Summerwyn and Italica, and also to the seas of Roseby in a year. The search had led to numerous leads of possible presence of untapped oil reserves in the Gardenia Mountain Ranges of Summerwyn and the seas in Italica. It is actually a long process, but the British Government is absolutely committed to oil as it is the lifeblood of the country. Oil drilling processes began near the mountain ranges and Prospera sea in Italica.
-- Republic of Italica --
The Republic of Italica also had seen similar direction with the city of Lincliff, given it's much farther distance from the British Isles, supplies here takes much longer. But that doesn't stop the inflow of foreign capital into the republic.
In fact, foreign investors puts much more interest and trust in the Italican consumer market. It must probably because of Italica's strong consumerist culture that is nearly the same with the United Kingdom. Multinational companies from the United Kingdom can be seen popping in the Shopping and Central District like wildfire; the demolished shops and establishments caused by the wyvern bombings we're immediately replaced by foreign multinational stores. Modern clothing stores and cafe's from britain can be seen in the streets of the district.
Light streets we're also erected with hundred of phone booths as well, the dockyard in the Central District is being upgraded and modified as well. And the Government Institutions in the Central District began to renovate their offices after the bombing with British assistance that ranges from material support and British staff aiding the construction of the Italican Infrastructure. Aside from infrastructure support, the British also built anti-air guns in the region and had started building an airport for civilian and military purpose in the island.
The Napoli Family had begun striking deals with both the British Government and the Multinational Companies. The Napoli paid the Royal Navy in exchange for its escort to its shipping lanes from the east in the seas of Roseby, it also financially cooperated with the Multinationals to the rising real-estate demand on the island.
The Napoli Family might see it's wealth and influence grow more powerful. Meanwhile, after securing additional supplies and reinforcements from the mainland. Clause, had began planning their military invasion towards the Summerwyn Capital, Sienna.
The British Army had deployed more men to the continent, the Royal Air Force had 200 aircraft in the continent stationed in Sienna. With the British Army garrisoned 10,000 troops with numerous armored tanks and artillery in Lincliff as well. A company-owned freighter truck is driving to the newly cemented road en route to Sienna to deliver construction materials to a construction site.
But, men with muskets and bombards are seen from a distance marching towards the direction of Sienna. They are marching gallantly with horns and singing loudly, probably singing their anthem to spread fear and panic to the distance. The driver is a British military soldier who came from Lincliff to deliver the supplies, but as soon as he saw the marching army holding the Imperial banner. He immediately called the British base in Sienna to report what he had saw. He then immediately drive his way to Sienna to regroup with the British Army.
