Occupation of Tytheria
(6570PS – 6521PS)
Tytheria, a pre-nation city-state seen as an informal hub for the exchange of ideas regarding ‘evil’ deities was neighboured by Olmex, a city-state aligned with pre-nations which worshipped ‘good’ deities and had recently undergone a number of embarrassing political scandals with its allies. To cement their position, Olmex began to vocally put pressure on Tytheria to cease their clandestine activities, but Tytherian officials denied that the worship of ‘evil’ deities was any part of their domestic policy (the truth of this matter is still debated).
After around a year of diplomatic frustration, Olmex sought to prove its loyalty to resolving the problem and invaded Tytheria without warning. Instating a formal occupation, they seized control of currency markets and forced Tytherian monetary transactions to be subject to Olmexian permission. This was in part to aid the investigation into any prospective organisations aligned to ‘evil’ deities and in part also to selectively encourage trade and success for organisations or entities more aligned with Olmexian principles or interests. The result was the same; the Tytherian economy ground to a halt almost overnight and remained in stagnation throughout the occupation.
