[1] Asakuun was Acting Alcuahtl of Yoahtl but defected after refusing to accept Yoahtl not joining Laconia. Upon defection Asakuun was declared a traitor and unpersoned, struck from all records.

At the Start of the World, Laconia and Yoahtl were one and the same nation, but a few days after joining, Laconia left Yoahtl and created Mt. Doom, directly north of Axochitlan. Shortly after leaving, raiders began to plague Axochitlan, pearling WackyAki and DerektheMan and obbybombing many areas. Hjaltland and Yoahtl began to investigate the cause of the raiding, with tensions very high. Quauhtli_Mia decided to share this information with Laconia, and then errantly began to blame Laconia for the raiding.

Quauhtli_Mia encouraging Yoahtlans to raid Laconia errantly

Shortly after these accusations, WackyAki encountered a small obby diamond on the GoR bridge in Axochitlan. Believing the diamond was a storage site for raiders, He began to break the associated snitch and obby. Upon discovering that the diamond was a small storage placed by Laconia holding 14uu's pearl, he apologized and offered to pay reps. At the same time, Yoahtlan government official Quauhtli_Mia began encouraging people to raid Laconia, leading to these two events to be seen as connected.

On July 4th, 2017, Laconia made a post on the subreddit [1] citing Yoahtl's illegal raiding of Laconia over the altraiding accusations. Laconia pearled Quauhtli_Mia and WackyAki for raiding, and put them in their vault indefinitely. Initially Asakuun negotiated that Yoahtl could stay in Axochitlan, and in exchange they would grind out 2 DCs of emerald block stacks every week for Laconia and be absorbed into the Laconian state as vassals. bgbba rejected these demands and issued the order to evacuate Axochitlan and begin finding a new home for Yoahtl. Asakuun defected from Yoahtl and the residents of Danville, GDAN12 and Tlanexculi in particular, accepted less harsh terms and joined Laconia. Yoahtl's remaining citizenry under the leadership of St_Liebowitz, bgbba, and TheOrangeWizard, fled north to found New Yoahtl City

A few weeks later, on July 25th, Lexington announced that the alt raiders were indeed Laconian alts[2] and pearled several Laconian ministers for altraiding on behalf of Yoahtl, and Sintralin ordered WackyAki freed and reps be paid to Yoahtl. At this time, the conflict is generally considered over.

Second Yoahtl-Laconia War - Fall of 2017

The second conflict occurred in the Fall of 2017. Amerikalainen, Yoahtl's general, led a series of raids on Mt. Doom to attempt to disable the military fortress. Initially this was done without the knowledge of the Yoahtlan government but after initial success and the lack of a Laconian response interest was expressed in exploring an attempt to take the fortress and reincorporate lost territories such as Axochitlan. Despite initial successes, Laconia was able to pearl three raiders out of a four player raiding party inside Mt. Doom when they were caught by surprise, including Amerikalainen and Quauhtli_mia. Quauhtli_mia, who Laconia still believed was running Yoahtl behind the scenes, was transferred to their ally Lexington, which was currently in the middle of the Somber War.

Yoahtl's government under Alcuahtl TheOrangeWizard and Deputy Alcuahtl bgbba, which had never been invested into the conflict and had no plans to conduct a war, immediately sued for peace. Fearful of opening a third front in the Somber War in the south and unwilling to continue a war that neither party had wanted, peace terms were readily agreed to. All Yoahtlan reps were paid in installments and Quauhtli_mia remained pearled by Lexington for several weeks for instigating the raids.

The second war was the least damaging of the conflicts and did not lead to further escalation. However, Yoahtlan claims to territory in the vicinity of Laconia remained and Yoahtlan nationalist sentiment remained about retaking Axochitlan in the future. These unresolved issues, postponed by the Somber War and fear of expanding it, remained for almost a year until the third and final conflict.

Third Yoahtl-Laconia War - August 2018

Main article: Third Laconia War

After a resettlement effort in Axochitlan drew the attention of an inactive Laconia, war broke out. Yoahtl was decisively defeated via the intervention of Rhodesia on the side of Laconia. Yoahtl was significantly damaged by the defeat and relinquished all claims to Axochitlan and surroundings. Despite three wars and years of conflict between the two powers, the third war was followed by a significant detente between the two nations. Neither fought the other again and the Final Settlement for Peace, negotiated by future Alcuahtl Feathercrown, has prevented any further conflicts.
