Not sure our income can handle that level of benefits increase even if we have a decent pile of reserve cash.
Current benefits is level 2, meaning it costs $2m. 10x cost changes that to $20m, an $18m difference. Current budget is $4.2b. The last few turns, finding things to spend money on has been harder than having enough, and our budget last turn was $2.6b. The increased costs aren't completely negligible, but they're not really significant either.

Like the Grifftiger battle armor.
Issue with getting that isn't money (well, not the primary issue at least), but the lack of research slots. Grifftiger power armor is something we get more for "fun" than because we get something highly valuable, and we've had really important things to research. Haven't spent much time pre-planning lately, so not sure how open research will be for "fun" projects as opposed to "needed" ones.

Changing my vote, didn’t check the budget sheet recently, just based it on the reserves we had over the past few turns.

Not a problem, watching the budget tends to be my job.

For the record, I generally keep a savings goal when making the plan. I'll probably end up increasing it sometime soon (maybe to 200m or 500m?), but currently anything substantially over $100m means I couldn't find enough expensive things to spend on. That generally serves as a better determiner of how much budget we have available than seeing how much the leftover changes from one turn to the next (where I'm pretty sure the last three turns jumped from that baseline to ~500->800->700)

Turn 73 - Courage and Will to Fight

As feared, the opposition coalition in the Thing in the NRR has blocked the call for a new general election unless the current ruling coalition stands down all security forces. Rioting and violence are ramping up as mobs of supporters of the opposition are defying the curfew in the capital and engaging in serious acts of vandalism and destruction. The city has been ground to a halt, power outages are constant as rioters target substations and infrastructure. Local security forces are barely holding the line, as the rioters are now screaming for blood, demanding the heads of the entire ruling coalition.

Supporters of the ruling coalition are fighting back, a massive march of supporters is approaching the capital, bringing along modified agricultural machinery that has had armor plates welded to it and very heavily armed, vowing to massacre the ‘criminal scum’ who support the opposition, and following that to ‘string up’ every single sitting member of the Thing who opposed them.

To their credit, security forces are currently struggling to keep this march out of the city and well away from the rioters, because if the two were to meet it would be explosive. The Prime Minister has been reduced to practically begging for calm and repeatedly calling for new elections to try and let the democratic process work. The Opposition claims to support new elections, but only after all security forces are withdrawn completely and the entire march of ruling coalition supporters is jailed as domestic terrorists. The fact that they make these demands while their own supporters riot and pose behind them with automatic weapons? Oh, they’re just peacefully protesting and having to be armed because the tyrannical governing coalition would otherwise murder them with their jackbooted thugs, of course.

The opposition has contacted the embassy, and between protestations of support for the NRR’s alliance with you are demanding that you withdraw all diplomatic recognition of the current Prime Minister, otherwise ‘unfortunate’ things might happen to Griffon owned businesses in NRR space. Considering that several stores owned by Griffon-based companies have already been subjected to arson attacks by the rioters, it’s pretty plain what they mean.

It’s an ugly, explosive situation all around. The part that irritates you is that you’ve seen the economic numbers. Gotland is finally turning the corner and has become a net contributor to the NRR’s balance sheet for the first time. If they can somehow manage to weather this political shit storm they’ll be in a far better position economically. If.

And the NRI is… more annoying in some ways. Evidently the minor fracas on Tarentum has yielded odd fruit, as the efforts by, you grit your teeth, ‘your’ temple in quelling the situation has led to a growth in popularity for the cult. The NRI ambassador is smirking, you are absolutely certain of it, despite his completely deadpan expression as he relays the news that a new temple on Nova Roma is being built. How you manage to keep from strangling him is beyond you.

The news that it’s planned to be made into a bit of a tourist attraction has your blood pressure, and urge to kill, rising. The fact that there is a ‘heroic’ marble sculpture planned ‘in the Classical style’ has you twitching even harder. You don’t need your littlest sister to tell you just what that entails. And you are most certainly not posing for a character study! You draw the line at that!

Your wife finds this absolutely hilarious, although she does agree on the no character study for the sculptor rule. While laughing and pointing out that that bit belongs to her, not to a 12 foot tall statue.

The ambassador clearing his throat and stating that it’s a 12 meter tall statue is the last straw. His bland assurance that the most highly regarded and skilled master craftsman in the NRI has been commissioned for the project is just as bad.

Luckily for the ambassador Sokar decides that he needs to be petted right now and that your lap is perfect for the Great Dane sized griffkitten to drape himself over for his rightful scritchies. And even he is looking amused at the situation. Damn cats.

And then it is budget time.

General Stewart is up first. “Your Majesty, I’ll just be giving a very brief overview now that we have reorganized the military. The Army is in need of additional production facilities, the Navy the same, and the Aerospace Force would like the same but would also like you to consider some proposals that they have to better support the Army. General Marks?”

The general in charge of the Imperial Griffon Army was in command of 1st Infantry during the fighting in the NRI and had impressed you with his ability to grasp the big picture, free of parochial concerns. Coming from an infantry background, he is also quite free of the Mechwarrior Mystique that you still find yourself suffering from sometimes.

“Your Majesty. The Army is in a solid position, with sufficient forces to handle the current plans for the invasion of the remnants of the Dracs. However, doing so would strip us of any meaningful offensive reserve. We would have a pair of Armored Divisions, and a number of Cavalry Divisions in reserve, along with the Rapid Reaction Divisions, however we are going to be dispatching a substantial percentage of our most capable units.”

And he’s cautious, an admirable trait in an infantry officer.

“As such, we would like to request that DoME begin construction of a pair of Megafactory complexes in the Griffon system on Nowy Gdansk, as well as additional Mech factory complexes in the Calliope, New Capricorn, and Nowy Slask systems. This will also require the expansion of Endosteel and Double Heat Sink production capacity. Further, we have the following procurement requests.”

He brings up a slide on the display, but continues speaking without looking at it. “To finish the 3rd Assault Division and bring it up to full strength we would require a pair of Assault Regiments and a single Standard Mech Regiment. Two additional Standard Mech Regiments and a single Armored Cavalry Regiment would allow us to field the 13th Armored Brigade of the 5th Armored Division. A pair of Light Horse Regiments would permit the full-strength fielding of the 15th Cavalry Brigade, thus filling out the 5th Cavalry Division. Three Pathfinder Regiments are requested for the 4th Pathfinder Brigade, which would permit the initial formation of the 2nd Pathfinder Division. Finally a single Raider Regiment is requested to fill out the 1st Rapid Response Brigade of the 1st Rapid Response Division. Last, but most certainly not least, we are requesting 3 Armored Regiments and 6 Mechanized Regiments in order to form the 9th Infantry Division.”
  • Total Procurement
    • 2 Assault Regiment
    • 3 Standard Mech Regiment
    • 1 Armored Cavalry Regiment
    • 2 Light Horse Regiment
    • 3 Pathfinder Regiment
    • 1 Raider Regiment
    • 3 Armored Regiment
    • 6 Mechanized Regiment

      • 3 Battlemech Factories
        • Nowy Slask, Calliope IV, New Capricorn
      • Upgrade All DHS Factories
      • Upgrade All Endosteel Factories

Newly minted General Romanov then takes the podium for the Aerospace Forces, having been recently promoted to fill the shoes of Ole Powerpoint Herself. You are rather grateful for that, you don’t think you’d survive another briefing from General Reyes.

“Your Majesty,” she begins, “As hinted by General Stewart we in the Aerospace Forces are suffering a bit of a crisis of operational relevance. Currently we are effectively just here to fill out the bays and CAP screen for the Navy, or to keep enemy fighters away from the Army with limited ground attack roles. Both of which are vital missions to be sure, but neither of which allows for any independent action. We have been using the same, relatively small, number of platforms for literally decades now, with the new CAP Wings being the first time in years that we’ve actually innovated. Stagnation is death, Your Majesty, and Your Aerospace Force has stagnated badly.”

She checks her notes briefly. “Therefore, we are planning on rolling out a number of initiatives to foster greater innovation and energy in the Force. As such, we would like your approval to form a formal study group charged with creating clean slate designs to fill various roles that aerospace fighters would be well suited for.”
[]Approve
  • Design contests will be opened for new designs to supplement or replace existing designs both in existing roles and in new roles
[]Disapprove
  • Keep with what you have

“As far as procurement and expansion, Your Majesty, the Aerospace Forces have the following requests.” She brings up a slide, but it is simple, straightforward, and shows none of the Powerpoint trickery that General Reyes loved. “First, on the production side, we need additional production lines if we are going to make any of this a reality. Therefore, we are requesting at least three new ASF production lines be built. We would prefer them to be clustered on New Phoenix to take advantage of the incredible potential there, not only for production but also as a relatively isolated system for the testing of new equipment. In addition, we will need more ferro-aluminium and double heat sink production if we aren’t to be bottlenecked.”

“Next, on the procurement side, we have 2 Oasis II stations that are expected to complete this year, requiring a total of 8 Fighter Wings. In addition we are planning in anticipation of a pair of White Tower stations being built in the New Eden system, which we request to be manned with a pair of Patrol Wings. This will leave us with 11 available factories and we would like to make use of them to procure 11 CAP Wings. Ideally, half of our deployed Independence class vessels will eventually have CAP Wings assigned, supplementing the current Carrier wings.”
  • Total Procurement
    • 8 Fighter Wings
    • 2 Patrol Wings
    • 11 CAP Wings
  • Project Requests
    • 4 General (plus seconding the request for the DHS expansion)
      • 3 Aerospace Factories
        • New Phoenix
      • 1 Expand All Ferro-Aluminium

Thanh is seated in the CNO seat and… damnit, she’s wearing a necklace that she obviously got from the NRI ambassador featuring the ‘symbol’ that that damnable cult uses to represent you. And you can’t say anything because you are pretty sure nobody else has noticed it and doing so would just draw attention.

And by her knowing smirk she let you see the necklace just to get a rise out of her big brother. Damn little sisters and their evil conniving ways! Defenestration after the meeting! You swear it!

“Well, Your Majesty, we’re going to want to be spending more of the taxpayers money on the project of Getting Larger.” she grins. “First up, on production expansion, we’d really like to continue to grow the way we have been. Nowa Warszawa is in a position to support a second regular Orbital Shipyard on top of the one it already has, so we’d recommend building one there. Expansion of our current yards, of course, is a given, as well as expanding the Refit & Repair yards. We would like to request a new Refit Yard be built in the New Phoenix system to support operations out that way in the future. And, Your Majesty? More ferro-aluminium is never going to go to waste, nor will more double heat sinks, and ferro-carbide is very… useful.”

She’s not even bothering with notes. “Now for procurement, we have the new Long Beach class ready to go, and we need a lot of them. We would like to lay down 50 of the beautiful things, along with 7 Lancers.

“We’d also like to lay down 20 Independences, assuming that we build those new ASF factories that Penelope asked for so nicely. That will use up all of her production, assuming the new Oasis II is finished next year. We’d like 2 more Sentinels to ensure sufficient recon capability and a new Royal Yacht for…” her smirk is your only warning, “Your Divine Majesties Divine Backside, since mom’s using HMS Renown and you are far too august a personage to ride around in mere transports.”

You are going to KILL HER DEAD.

“We have a half dozen slips each for Jumpships and Warships, therefore we are requesting 6 Brig-class jumpships and 6 Fletcher class Destroyers. The latter won’t be ready in time for the planned operation, but in the future those beautiful girls will be a major part of the fleet.”

She negligently puts up a slide that was obviously made by her five year old granddaughter with crayons and the dubious ‘help’ of grandma. Everybody else in the room is cooing over it, especially all the pretty flowers dotting it. The procurement requests, however, are still visible despite the ‘enhancement by 5 year old’.

Sometimes you think Thanh is still a 5 year old, but then you remember the sorts of hijinks you and her would get up to as junior officers…

Bridget is up next, looking chipper as always and possibly chipper enough to distract you from strangling your dear little sister.

“Your Divine Maje… err, sorry.” a wave of laughter fills the room as Bridget blushes at the mistake. You give in, you can’t help it, so you play along and idly wave your hand like you’ve seen actors due in historical holodramas. “Your Majesty, we are well set to build anything you want built! We’ve got those two requests for Megafactories, which we can certainly accommodate if you want, but if not we can get started on building some shiny new Arcology Clusters in Griffon and Nowa Warszawa to make sure we can accommodate the rising populations it’s really your choice and it’s not vital yet since the system governments are on top of things so far but we can totally manage to build a bunch of new factories and expand all the strategic material lines if you want because i’ve got enough teams for all of that stuff and more because did you know that we can now build a really big orbital platform based on the work we’ve been doing on a proposed modular fleet base for future use that we can use as a basis for a ton of industrial work in the Griff’s Leap system which would allow us to build a capital yard and maybe an orbital shipyard and maybe some mech and ASF factories there once we finish the giant thing which would be expensive but also rather quick.”

She is still blushing by the time she’s finished, and she’s your age!

Isoroku is up next. “Your Majesty, the Olympics were incredibly successful last year, and this year we’ll finally be getting the sports camp up and running. However, the situation in the NRR has degenerated even further since this morning.” He hands over a dispatch. There is now open fighting in the streets of the capital of New Rasalhague, the local security forces are barely managing to hold the city center and government buildings as clashing mobs of rioters are engaged in outright warfare throughout the city. The Opposition members of the Thing are holed up in a major government office block right next to the chambers of the body and are refusing to leave, screaming to the skies about oppression by the Government. “We have a formal request from the Prime Minister to send a Garrison Brigade to New Rasalhague to suppress the violence from both sides, with the pledge that as soon as we are securing the city he and the rest of his government will formally resign their offices, triggering an automatic election that the Opposition won’t be able to block with quorum shenanigans. He is asking us to oversee the election as a neutral third party.”

Jake is sitting next to Isoroku, looking tired. “Your Majesty, your political team is available for anything you need. We’re still studying the New Eden situation and will have a report for you early next year, but we foresee no difficulty in lawfully annexing the system assuming that Ms Kalinowski doesn’t find anything preventing it in the traditions of international jurisprudence. Once we have something more concrete for you we’ll let you know.”

Dr Bryant is up next. “Your Majesty, we have six teams chomping at the bit to get started. And we are of the opinion that we need to go big or go home this year. We would like to start all three standard and all three compact core projects this year. This will push back starting work on Mobile HPGs by a year, but we have two possible lab expansions this year, and so we recommend holding off on that for one more year.”

General Messerschmidt has his hands folded in front of him. “Your Majesty, I have nothing new and exciting for you. There’s been little change in the Nya Kopenhamn situation so far this year, and we recommend against exposing our agents in the NRI and NRR for any… operations… at this time.”

Martina is the last one up. “Your Majesty, I’m currently working with Jake on the New Eden situation. The first of the refugees should be arriving in the TTP next month and we’ll be interviewing them, but this all comes under the normal operational functions of my department so we don’t require any special authorization.”

We are a bit of a big fish in a small pond diplomatically right now. Invading the only military opposition, worshipped in part by one ally and being asked to oversee the elections of another.

The fact that we now have 2b in the bank makes me laugh since we are apparently now at the point where money is no longer an issue.

Am I tempting fate, YES! Yes I am.

Still $2b leftover, so no real concerns about money in the near future. Made a few mistakes and forgot things while making previous version, this one works a bit better.

The fact that we now have 2b in the bank makes me laugh since we are apparently now at the point where money is no longer an issue.

Am I tempting fate, YES! Yes I am.
Between the NRR and the Dracs, I am expecting a double mass humanitarian crisis/ guerrilla wars to drain all the treasure from our empire.
Not even counting building a bunch of colonies at the same time. EU4 taught me how draining on the budget that can be.
