Heaven's Reach ST Posted March 20, 2014 Share Posted March 20, 2014 Having cleanse the manses completely, though it took some time to finish the cleansing, especially in the most contaminated areas, it was just as well for the diplomatic agenda took several weeks all on it's own. The empire wanted access and trade agreements, the system government wanted autonomy, the marshal's wanted alliance, and the talks had gathered a few other interested parties. ,, With the weapons systems online, the system had the military power to maintain it's independence, however access and control was restricted to the celestial exalted, a built in feature from the age of the solar dynasties. If the system had any celestial exalts of their own, that might not have been a problem, but as they did not, a rather firm treaty was needed with those who did, namely the marshals or the empire. The Queen also didn't wish to make an enemy of the empire, and though relations between the marshals and the empire were tense, neither wished them to become worse. ,, Several weeks were to pass while the young Serenity caste was to attempt to thread this particular diplomatic manse, time during with the rest of the exalted and the ship crews were able to to use for repairs, study and assisting the diplomatic endeavors of Althea on the planet below. This was not as entirely free of complications, there were a few individuals on either side who didn't want this to go through, though the determination of the queen, the marshals and the imperial commander were presently such that little seemed able to stop it. Nevertheless, there was a request by Althea to look into and provide security against those who might use more direct means to stop the peace accords. ,, During this period, Dan was to be contacted by the marshals with a request, from the Emissary of Nexus VII, which, was part of the Confederation of Rivers was a signatory on the Illuminated Accords, if one with certain provisions. Enough time had passed sense Dan was first given his present mission that some details had slipped to the other major signatories, and there was a request that he take the influential eclipse caste Methis and his retinue aboard his ship as a liaison officer.
