|In the teahouses of the capital, the citizens talk of nothing else.|
An ultimatum is being delivered to Herzog Mikhail of Saxe-Coburn und Buchholz containing the following demands;
- All forces of the Duchy of Saxe-Coburn und Buchholz to quit the province of Nizhny Bublik forthwith.
- Markgraf Boris Ivanovich to be handed over to the Velikye Byelgorodniyan ambassadors to stand trial on charges of treason.
- Herzog Mikhail to make recompense and pay reparations to the Grand Prince to the amount of 100,000 gold crowns.
- All border posts to be restored and repainted in the appropriate colours.
- All sable hats to be rounded up and handed over for destruction in a ceremonial bonfire.
Failure to comply with these conditions will result in a state of war between the Grand Principality of Velikye Byelgorodniya and the Duchy of Saxe-Coburn und Buchholz.
The enemy has been warned!
Now, if only the generals can decided where to strike the first blow...
