Assorted news from Atlantis

July 30/21 Atlantian peace keeping troops prepare to debark

Under the terms agreed upon in the South American summit Atlantian peace keeping troops debarked aboard military transports today bound for Maracaibo Venezuela and their eventual patrol area's in Guyana and Eastern Columbia. The peace keeping troops will ensure that no hostile troops will escalate the war already waging in the region.
War between Nordmark and Argentina broke out earlier this year after the Royal Nordic Family was Sadistically murdered and several Nordic ships were attacked with an undisclosed ammount of Nordic Casualty's. The war is expected to get worse as Nordmark mobilizes her forces and sends them to the region.
In addition Argentina has signed an unholy Alliance with Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia in an aparently planned treaty summit just days after Nordmark was attacked. So far Chile remains out of the war but virtually no news is coming from Chile which leads to speculation that they are preparing to join the war on the side of Nordmark due to poor relations with some of its nabours.
