STORY ( french and english )


STORY

In 1889, the period known as the Great Cultural Invasion starts. After the opening of the Japanese borders, the United States of America massively imports typical American goods to Japan. They were first in competition with the great European nations but those latters finally retreat, absorbed by the decay of Franco-German relation that paralyze the international politics of the old continent. On the United States side, the Collins-Waffen plan, created in order to ensure the loyalty of the House of Representatives through corruption and military aid in the Sino-Japanese conflict is a success, and the pro-American resolutions succeed one another, to the detriment of Japan's economic health. During June 1891, The New-York Times causes a scandal with the headline "But when the Japanese magpie does dry up? ". The newspaper will be closed with losses and crash two months later, causing riots in New York and Washington DC, quelled by the intervention of the army.

In Japan, the bloodless and scorned people is angry. A second civil war brakes out in 1891, led by a group of feudal families claiming the legacy of Satsuma. The population, exhausted by the too rapid reforms, disappointed by the Emperor and the galloping transformation of the country, ranks overwhelmingly on the side of the "Sons of Satsuma ". The United States react immediately, wanting to protect their interests in Japan, but the Soderberg government is close to its next election in the front of a democratic opposition that is on the rise. President Soderberg then seeks to spare public opinion, especially after the New York Times event. n order to avoid a human engagement in a deadly conflict and which might be unpopular, the United States uses for the first time combat automata. The success of these robots is immediate. Americans' moral disengagement from the conflict is then complete, and abuses become common. This is the beginning of the Uncertain Sun period. The underworld and traditionalist families are growing, supported by China and Russia, and founded an opposition government in Morioka. Japan is cut in half. The brawls and skirmishes multiply between the feudalists and the loyalists.

The sons of Satsuma quickly take over automatons in working order, that they hijack and reshape in the image of colossal and terrifying samurais. Although they are unable to produce them in series or to unravel the mysteries, these robots will become the emblem of the Satsuma revolt and propaganda. Those ones will go up to include their flag. In fact, these robots will be used mostly as a luxury bodyguard for sons and daughters of noble families, and will almost never serve in combat.

HISTOIRE

En 1889 démarre la période dite de la Grande Invasion Culturelle. Suite à l’ouverture des frontières japonaises, les Etats-Unis importent massivement des denrées typiquement Américaines au japon. Ils sont d’abord concurrencés par les grandes nations Européennes mais ces dernières se retirent, absorbées par la déliquescence des relations Franco-Allemandes qui paralysent la politique internationale du vieux continent. Du coté des Etats-Unis, le plan Collins-Waffen, visant à s’assurer la loyauté de la chambre des représentants par la corruption et une aide militaire dans le conflit Sino-Japonais est un succès, et les résolutions pro Américaine se succèdent, au détriment de la santé économique du Japon. Le new York Times fait scandale en juin 1891 en titrant « Mais quand le pie japonais se tarira-t-il ? ». Le journal sera fermé avec pertes et fracas deux mois plus tard, entrainant des émeutes à New York et Washington DC, réprimées dans le sang par l’intervention de l’armée.

Au japon, le peuple exsangue et bafoué gronde. Une deuxième guerre civile éclate en 1891, menée par un groupe de familles féodalistes se réclamant de l’héritage des Satsuma. La population, éreintée par les réformes trop rapides, déçue par l’empereur et la transformation galopante du pays, se range massivement du côté des « Fils de Satsuma ». Les Etats-Unis réagissent immédiatement, cherchant à protéger leurs intérêts au Japon, mais le gouvernement Soderberg est proche de sa prochaine échéance électorale face à une opposition démocrate qui a le vent en poupe. Le président Soderberg cherche alors à ménager l’opinion publique, surtout après l’évènement du New York Times. Afin d’éviter un engagement humain dans un conflit meurtrier et qui risquerait d’être impopulaire, les Etats-Unis emploient pour la première fois des automates de combat. Le succès de ces robots est immédiat. Le désengagement moral des Américains vis-à-vis du conflit est alors total, et les exactions deviennent monnaie courante. C’est le début de la période du Soleil Incertain. La pègre et les familles traditionalistes prennent de l’ampleur, soutenus par la Chine et la Russie, et fondent un gouvernement en opposition à Morioka. Le Japon est coupé en deux. Les rixes et les escarmouches deviennent monnaies courantes entre les féodalistes et les loyalistes.

Les Fils de Satsuma s’emparent rapidement d’automates en état de marche, qu’ils détournent et re façonnent à l’image de samurais colossaux et terrifiants. Bien qu’incapable de les produire en série ou d’en percer les mystères, ces robots deviendront l’emblème de la révolte et de la propagande des Satsuma. Ces derniers iront jusqu’à l’étamper sur leur drapeau. En réalité ces automates seront majoritairement utilisés comme garde du corps de luxe pour les fils et les filles des familles nobles, et ne serviront presque jamais au combat.
