Warsman surveyed his empire in a leather chair in one of the towers he had constructed for such a purpose all around Neo-Russia. One was found in every major city and was maintained by under-czars when Warsman wasn't around.
This one inparticular was located in London, or rather Moscow IV, or the Upper Islands, once called the British Isles. It looked over the remains of the city, which were watched and pillaged by his soliders. Even though only a sixth of the city was occupied by Russian soldiers, they were the most potent of military forces there, as they took over the more efficient parts of the city and left the shambles, the falling pieces, to the ones they were hunting down: Old-Londoners.
Warsman had had his eyes set on conquering London, and all of England, for months now and he was close to victory as he watched the wars in the streets grow more violent and shift deeper in his favor with each passing day.
