"Warlord Dodonna Salonai,
I hope this correspondence finds you well. I truly appreciate the funds, resources and people you have brought to my campaign.
The Human Colonists of Refuge thank you.
As you know I was once a VLAD agent, and workly closely with the Old VLAD.
He used to tell me stories about the Conquest Wars of Caldon Salonai. I do not blame your father for rebelling. The way the Old Vlad told it, it was inevitable.
Once Caldon Salonai found out the old Colony General was a vampire, he set off to liberate the colonies. Of course his choice to secretly take funding from the Iron Republic was a bad political move. It gave him the weapons and armor for his civil war, but it turned many people, like the Old Vlad against your father.
I know the IR reached out to you during the Border Wars and you refused their help declaring yourself a loyal colonial citizen.
That loyalty deserves to be rewarded. If I do gain the rights of Colony General, I will immediately pull Commander Shiro and his Spec Ops out of Kalino.
That will shift the balance of power in your favor, and you can finally consolidate the entire Colony of Kalino.
But what if I do not win…?
What then? With my pull in Dumbar and your pull in Kalino we could effectively cut off all technology production. I can even reach out to the Duskan Archers and pay them to cut off Dusks flow.
In that case, you would be able to use your Iron Dukes to be the sole source of civilian power armor on Refuge. That would be a coin that could bargain your way into full control over Kalino.
But in that inicident I guarantee Commander Shiro will be a thorn in your side…unless…you throw your support behind a full civil war.
Yes if the Election gets won by those conspiring against Human rule, you will be without any support in places of power. But if we time a civil upring with a civil war going on in the Northern Kingdoms, the EEF will be too split to stop you from your civil…"
It ended abruptly as if it was discarded after the writer spilled his coffee and forgot about the draft of the letter.
Was this the bombshell letter that could turn around the election? Was this the dirt Buffy and Kand had been searching for?
