SC.2023.06. Battle of Minao Island

Minao Island, located off the coast of Moniq, but belonging to empire of Kagomei, is a textbook example in Arndan history books of why you should respect your word.   In 45AK, still struggling to establish itself as a nation, the small realm of Kagomei found itself attacked by its much larger, much stronger militarly, neighbour: Moniq, despite Moniq being a founding member of the Pledge of Eurani, and bound by it's non-aggression pact. General Xanethar Thiffli led an expedionary force numbering over 75000 total fighting forces into Kagomei, hoping to capture the then-capital of Innu city.   Springing into action with energy born of desperation, Matsu Dandelion, new ruler of Kagomei, mobilized every force he had, and issued edicts that upgraded then-civilian forces of border guards and life guards to military status. The border guards were assigned to garrison duty, keeping a tight lid on major cities, while the lifeguards were assigned to morale-keeping and sorcery-based duties on larger military units, from ships to cavalry. This proved so successful, the classification of such forces went from purely civilian to 'armed services', reflecting what was a current practice of the time for coastal forces and military police, but not general police, in Eurani.

The Conflict


Innu Palace sacked Kagomine capital moved from Innu, to Megamisama


  • Minao Island becomes part of Kagomei
  • Kagomei declares itself an empire, instead of a kingdom, due to the former now possessing territory untouched by Kagomé, its original ruler and namesake
  • Historical Significance


    Kagomei, especially Kagomine diplomats get tagged with the sobriquet: princes/princesses of peace

    Technological Advancement

    Moniqan rulers are so underwhelmed by the performance of their Navy that they begin phasing it out.
