    I won't mask the truth; the Year of the tohaa has been difficult for us in its uncertainties. The Fall of Daedalus Gate has cut us off from the Trinomial and from our homeworld, Runohaa. Not only are we unable to return home, we are left without a means to know how the colonies with their own faraway battlefronts with the Combined Army. No news from loved ones, no resupplies from Trident Command, no choice but to remain here to fight alongside the Humans.

    But the Humans still remain wary of us and our technology, vastly different from their own rudimentary machines. After all, why should they not be? To them, how are we different from the Morats, from the Exrah, from the Shasvastii that now infiltrate this Human Sphere, from the misled "Sygmaa" septorised by the Enemy?

    If we are to continue fighting our true enemy, we must firmly establish our place among the Humans. To this end, Luubna Kaaram has outpaced us all; her purchase of the Spiral Corps Mixed Mercenary Company is a step toward legitimising Tohaa presence and normalising Tohaa-Human interactions. We must take our own steps.

    First, however, we must answer the question of Tohaa leadership. Ambassador Maaya Seegur is truly dead, Ambassador Vaanther among the O-12, and other senior members difficult to locate. To solve this, I propose that our remaining Tridents, those who have not already pledged to the fledgling Spiral Corps, announce themselves and their present status. From those of us left, a moot and vote shall be called to usher in a new Tohaa Command Triad whose task it will be to not only coordinate our military efforts but also to communicate our intentions to the Humans and discover who among them will welcome us and, more importantly, stand with us in holding back the EI.

    [​IMG]

    My proposition: [With thanks to the Haqqislam organisers.] When the online campaign forums open, one of the first topics that will be provided shall be a nomination thread. This thread will be open for 72 hours. During that time, you are free to nominate anyone, including yourself, as a member of the Command Triad. There are NO REQUIREMENTS. If you feel you could make a good Command Triad member, then nominate yourself. After 72 hours, a new topic will be made to vote on that nomination list. This voting will take place over 48 hours, and each individual will have one vote to cast. Again, you may vote for yourself or others. The individuals with the most votes will be the triad assigned as Tohaa Command.

    No matter the outcome of this vote, all of you brave commanders and your troops are important. We are all ambassadors now with a duty to forge bonds with the Humans and with each other. In these difficult times, let us be a cooperative and fair community. Support each other and share saom as though we were all one Triad. Daedalus may have fallen, but the Tohaa continue to fight, both here and in the colonies.

    10-2. #ThreeTheTohaa #TohaaUnfallen

    PS. Just a reminder that it is imperative we work closely with the Cube Jaegers. Back up frequently. Leave no Tohaa Cube behind or vulnerable. Avoid True Death at all costs.

    Kaeltar Specialist Ereev "Einhorn" Daavi had only served on this side of the Daedalus wormhole for under one of the Human cycles, placed in the Human Sphere instead of other fronts because of the close proximity of his colony to the planet Paradiso. In that year, he mainly managed auxiliary forces to the Trident -- the symbiobombs and -mates, exalted Chaska with the gift of language, Kaauri and Reex, Humans, Omn, and the ocassional but very scary Krakot Morat.

    The Gate falling changed all that.

    Ereev Daavi is by no means a veteran of the Trident, nor one qualified to even be making the call to arms he makes today, especially not with the unsigned contract to the Spiral Corps that sits now neglected on his table. But if there is something he is qualified for, it is the Vaarso Battlespeak designation he has been assigned -- 10-2: an ability to control chaotic situations that have suddenly turned very dangerous.

    It does not escape him also those three numbers transliterated into the Human numerals make an anagram of their own diplomatic hub, O-12. 10-2. The chances that he can help keep the Trident together despite his lack of experience, he believes, are definitely non-zero.

    Thank you Kaeltar Specialist Ereev "Einhorn" Daavi, sadly I, Choo "ChoTimberwolf" Sakuul, patrolled in a pretty far off quadrant so had a low number of contacts with enemy forces. I hope that this area will become more intresting for other forces soon so that I may help my fellow Tohaas.
    Good luck on your missions always stay with your friends and cover each others back

    @Abrilete
    I hope it's okay -- I've stolen your signature because it is a good message for this campaign -- let us expand our influence over the Human Sphere!

    @ChoTimberwolf
    Bravely pioneering into new quadrants is a noble Tohaa tradition. Please accept the hope that you find something out there that shall help the Tohaa cause! Thank you for your support, even from so far away!

    @Einhorn to be quite Honest, Sir. My guess is that this are is simply to intresting cause every other faction withdrew from here.

    Being part of the Tohaa campaign would be so great. I have forgotten this side of Infinity. Unfortunately, with the loss of our game store a couple years ago, the Infinity group died. It's starting back up now that we have a place to play, but it's slow going (only me and two others). I definitely will keep watch and see how my other friendly artichokes are doing, and keep up the good fight!

    @Deathadder84 -- Even if you are only able to deliver one or two battle reports throughout the campaign, that is more than okay; the Tohaa would be glad to have you! Your situation is similar to mine -- my active group in the last year has primarily been me and two others, only now slowly growing out to five active + others in the wider wargaming community, so I know I won't be as effective as someone who can play regularly with different people on weekdays. This is why I will also help contribute in other ways by volunteering to help with our relations with other factions and our internal coordination (although I also hope that my efforts in organising the local group do mean I get a good number of games to report!)

    It sounds like many Tohaa who have replied are in areas now which are less populated, but that is fine; keep up the positive responses and make the space we have here for Tohaa a nice place to interact and discuss the faction and you will be providing a year-long service more valuable than the campaign itself! If we're lucky, I'll see your reports from the battlefield, but we are already very fortunate to have you on these forums!

    Well, I must say that as an Spanish speaker, I usually frequent the Spanish part of the forums, so I didn't knew of this topic until now.

    I must say that, considering Vaanthar not playing Tohaa this year, I was considering to nominate myself as Tohaa liaison since I believe I've proven my compromise with the Tohaa on the past campaigns.

    I think it is great to have a veteran Tohaa wanting to take leadership! What do you think of the idea to have a triad for leadership? Having three voted leaders working in harmony would be very excitingly Tohaa and keeps our command structure healthy for future campaigns, so I'd like to go forward with that idea with you as a definite nominee!

    Considering that in the past years there was only one candidate to liaison, it would be quite surprising to get three people for the leadership. And anyway, it's not a leadership, is a liaison. It is a person that talks and negotiate with liaisons of other factions to see what is gonna be the faction's objective during the campaign, he communicates de objectives to everyone and then each player does whatever he wants (usually they "obey", but they're not obliged).

    I see, I see. This is my first narrative campaign, so I'm not 100% certain how things are supposed to work, but I trust your experience and will wait to see what the campaign console looks like from the inside. I was thinking about the idea of a triad because of how the Haqqislam have 4 leadership positions (3 commanders, 1 advisor who is normally one of the newer players), but a lot will also depend on how many Tohaa players are confirmed once we get the campaign online. (If there is only 11 of us, a triad might seem a bit silly, but might still be fun if everyone wants it, haha.)

    I can pass to you or whomever our liaison/leader ends up being the information I received from people I've been speaking with and generally play support!

    You can count on that we'll be the lesser in number... Last year we were less than a hundred registered players, and I would say than less than twenty were being active players and participative on the forum... U_U

    But don't worry, we were not too many, but we kicked some big asses!

    I'm having issues to register... It says that the username must be unique... Nobody else is registered with the same usernames as I can see on the commanders' log...

    I see you posting over there. Is that actually you, or did someone decide to impersonate you? I can't find the Kaauri on the warconsole...

    I had problems with registration too.
    I can enter in the Kurage site, but can't on the new one. I registered again, I think I had lost all my achievements.
