After the ceremonial protocol, most of the other delegations left the chambers temporarily.
An initial confusion could be seen on the three representatives when first hearing Blarienn’s suggestion.
F. Vehsi representing the Merimang Group, who was still convinced of his position, complied with the idea first. He would also finish last.
Igar Maryani representing the V.A.F. faction followed thereafter, though appeared to be lost in answering the question of “What the other two sides wish to accomplish”. A short note was written down before being the first to give the paper to Blarienn.
Bogdanov Armantinsky had no idea what to write down. The representative understood BAF’s popularity among the citizens and Skandergrof’s motivation behind the movement. However, the issue was that Armantinsky truly didn’t know what their long-term goal would be and how it would be sustainable.
After some odd ten minutes of staring blankly at the wall, he remembered the recent fraction split within the BAF. Goals regarding the other two factions were already clear to him.
Lord Rivers remained in the room. His look gazed upon the Korosian translator Rowtag for a moment while the rest were leaving. This lasted about until Vehsi started writing. Complying with the instructions he had been given, Rivers stood up and left the round table, although remaining within the room just out of any considerable attention.
The note from Vehsi was pretty much a summary of the Outlaw Declaration, with some defense of it.
In regards to the other two sides, the following was written; “The VAF merely wants power as an autocratic regime, I believe that BAF does not have a goal beyond blind revenge for the bombing of Aelbasan.”
Maryanis note was significantly shorter and more precise. “Zihexh wishes to consolidate and establish a ‘guided democracy’, it does remain questionable whether the rest of V.A.F. would follow such an idea. - - - Merimang Group has a plethora of interests with no clear goal. - - - The B.A.F. aims to” and the note ended incomplete.
Armantinsky perhaps had the worst explanation. It contained the following:
“BAF’s goal is self-determination of the Viliakmoni peoples, as seen in the recent allowance of fracturing between the WJC and ANU.”
“The regime in Ochridae has been a thorn of Viliakmon before the war officially even began. They do not have a goal. It is delusion and disconnect from reality which fuels them.”
“Merimang Island in of itself is an even greater exaggeration of the previous frame of mind. Vehsi still defending the Outlaw Declaration shows a caricature of disconnected elites. Their goal is to return status quo (which is impossible) and keep this corpse of a regime on life support…Though there are some exceptions among them.”
If anything, this disrupted the previously calm demeanor of three representatives approach to one another. Although they were moderates, articulating the other sides lead them to experience a short fuse of self-awareness.
