IN OTHER NEWS:

A detachment of ships flying the personal flag of Serov Ryskäl departed from an undisclosed island outpost just off the coast of North-Eastern Gielinor. The most notable ships of this detachment would be two tugs which were pulling what appeared to be an incomplete ship.
---
In addition, followed:

Three 26-gun frigates for primary engagements.

A single 17-gun clipper ship intended for routing enemies and scouting.

Two chase-brigs equipped with 3 mortars each and a multitude of swivel guns to deter boarders.

Lastly, two small unarmed carracks tasked with carrying the aforementioned incompleted ship's remaining pieces.


---
If left unhindered; these ships would arrive on time upon Karamja's primary eastern military port after a lengthy two week's time. Once the primary ships were temporarily moored at the port, the two ships tugging the incomplete-project ship would be guided into a dry-dock where they would remain henceforth. The two carracks would unload their cargo in the same fashion before the entire detachment, barring the tugs and project ship, resupplied and set sail once again for their home port in the brooding north.
---
Once the project ship had been set properly in the dry-dock, security measures would increase for the small area around it to ensure that it's finalization would remain secret. Any
unauthorized peoples nearing the dry-dock yard were immediately turned away to preserve secrecy as well.

In addition to the above, another trade was struck between Karamja and the kingdom of Misthalin. A collection of slaves consisting of Kharidian men and women were sold to Karamja in exchange for some gold and around 80 acres of land for the construction of a new plantation on an island off the coast of eastern Gielinor, one of Karamja's colonies.

A Karamja and Craven Company flag hoisted itself on the tallest mast of a semi-ornate frigate in the ports of Sarimia. After the final checks were done, the sails were drawn down to pull the ship out of the docks and into deeper waters. Eventually the ship would come to full sail, its course set for the ports of Karamja. In the rear of the ships hull was a decent sized cabin where a particular ex-KDF general rested during the voyage. Serov had decided it was time to return to the motherland to seek out new ventures.

I.C.
Under the cover of night a fleet of fifty-six ships set off from the ports of Karamja to amass on the island's northeastern coasts. Once they neared their rendezvous position the fleet went dark, sails raised, and anchors dropped. Come dawn the fleet was brought to full sail once more, the fastest ships of the fleet were sent out front, making their way to intercept any ships in the waters between Karamja and Asgarnia. The primary group of the heaviest ships made to secure both ends of the western Asgarnia waterways, forming a blockade. Any Asgarnian military or civilian ships that were caught in the blockade would have the choice to drop anchor until permitted to pass or be engaged, any non-Asgarnian ships were left unhindered and allowed to traverse the waters freely. Captains of the leading ships of each detachment were equipped with a commorb in order to be relayed orders from the mainland as updates were made available to them.

The 56 ship fleet was detailed as follows:
-4 shield-wall ships
-15 clippers
-5 corvettes
-10 bombard ships
-10 Pallas-class frigates
-10 galleons
-1 Man o' war
-1 Cutter.

The blockades being made up of a staggered and randomly ordered line of bombards, frigates, galleons, and shield wall ships.
The escorts and chase ships consisted of clippers, and corvettes.
The single Man o' war and cutter are both designated as support ships; the cutter is to be used to relay information, while the Man o' war will assist in quelling enemy ships should friendlies be against unsafe odds.




O.O.C.

Hit Buppy or I up if you want to fight back or interact regarding this in any way. We'll make another post or reach out to set up a meeting or somethin' in the near future to discuss reasoning and terms for relinquishment.

After the festivities in Kandarin:

Julia Craven has been named as part of the Vekonic court for the Empress, increasing already fantastic relations with the Kingdom. A small collection of Karamjan vessels would return with Julia upon her arrival in Kandarin, along with her personal guards.

The Karamjan naval yards and dry docks erupted in activity today as a hundred or more KDF inspectors set out to begin picking through Karamja's best and worst naval elements. Each and every single ship would be examined and determined to be kept, destroyed, or salvaged. Such an act is sure to take months, but this time of peace is better a time to commit to such than any.

The expected outcome of this endeavor is to cut the massive Karamjan navy in half whilst upgrading and overhauling all currently active and surely seaworthy ships to ensure another half-century of naval superiority and trade.
