Palacio de Burgos

"Home." Alessia spoke, dropping her bags on the floor near the doorway. The beautiful palace's windows still boarded up as Alessia stepped on the broken wood that had been destroyed in order to get her into the Palace. Her mother was still at Marrakech, helping her sister-in-law transport the peninsular Iberians back onto the mainland.

The new queen walked slowly in the Palace, stopping for a while and setting her gaze upon the throne which she would soon sit on. She sighed and continued her walk, stepping on the long staircase that led to the second floor. She figured that it would be good to pay her respects to her deceased father, she expected that she'd find him at peace on his bed.

It was not at all like that.

As she opened the door, Alessia noticed a red liquid had stained the brown carpet of the room. She turned her head, and there he was. Vicente de Vivar, former king of Iberia, still sat on a chair. Blood had stained not only the carpet of the room, but his clothes and the chair he was sitting on.

Alessia teared up, this was not a peaceful death. She knelt by her father, hugging his lifeless body and muttering gibberish in Spanish. She wanted to know who killed him, she wanted revenge against the assassin of King Vicente.

1 Hour Post-Arrival

Josefina had arrived 30 minutes after Alessia, and was now holed up in her room. Sobbing uncontrollably as Alessia and her aunt watched Vicente's bodybag be loaded in the ambulance. The hospital would find out the king's cause of death and notify Alessia ASAP.

"Tia Natalia. Who do you think could've done this. Alessia asked her aunt, who was mourning Vicente, in her own way.

"I don't know, Alessia. But when we find out, he or she will pay he price." Natalia replied before leaving Alessia on the sidewalk. They both needed space. Alessia received a text from her mother, ordering Alessia to come to her. As she had an idea about who was the killer of Vicente.

Alessia promptly did so, walking over to her mother's room and closing the door after she entered.

"Yes mama? Who do you think could've done it?"

Josefina was sat on a chair overlooking Burgos, her voice icy as she spoke to her daughter.

"Someone from the Republic."

"Which republic, mama? There are sever-" Alessia was cut off by her mother as she spoke.

"You know which Republic, Alessia." Josefina turned her head to Alessia, her face filled with subtle anger. Her eyes still wet from crying. Alessia stepped back a little, relations between the two nations had always been tense, but to accuse Britain of hiring an assassin to kill Vicente was a little too much.

Alessia nodded, acknowledging her mother's accusation. "But mama, we have no proof."

"We don't need any. Your father was planning a massive invasion of Britain to put Cassandra on the throne. You remember Cassandra, don't you?" Josefina replied, Alessia did remember Cassandra, the heir to the British Throne. As she talked to her mother, Britain assassinating Vicente seemed to make more and more sense.

"Yes, mama. But, I need to think." Alessia left the room, closing the door behind her. As she left it, she noticed the War Room hidden in a dark corner of the second floor's hallway, she approached it, and entered.

You don't get land because it's open and you haven't expanded.
Expansion isn't the focus of the region, we aren't in the Medieval Era. If you want additional land that is VALUABLE TO YOUR CONCEPT, you need to justify it.
Don't want to RP for it? EXPLAIN its value to your concept and approach the cartographer. Maybe it'll work.
Why would they not RP for it? Because perhaps their concept involves them owning the land from the beginning, in the case of a nation larger than the initial claim limit. RPing for it would be non-canon and irrelevant anyway.
PUT THE FREE CLAIM OUT OF ITS MISERY, ITS TIME TO MOVE ON
Vote yes for abolishing the free claim!

That's what my english teacher used to call "Trying to have butt sex with flies."

Which means: You concentrate on details that are too small. What's a free claim? Most of us around here used them, and even you did. If we exclude people like Bak, free claims are actually a good way to enhance your roleplay. If you start making our region more complicated, it won't attract as much people. In the olden days, free claims were allowed, we weren't as stiff regarding concepts and everything went by fine.
