In Davidium itself little publicity was made with the Ministry of Information markedly conspicuous by its silence.
The armed insurrection waged by the Legoban in the Empire’s far-flung provinces of Castleland and Basicstan has claimed hundreds of lives since violence first broke out in 2009. The majority of deaths have been common Castlefigs.
News of peace talks has nevertheless surprised many political analysts who had expected the military led administration in Davidium would be keener to escalate rather than defuse the conflict.
Speculation is now mounting as to what the state may put forward as part of any peace deal which range from expanding Legoban areas of control to imposing cultural reforms. The Minifig Times understands that the Legoban are seeking at a minimum expanded territorial control within the Empire and the establishment of ‘Cleansed Regions’, areas where it shall hold full judicial power.
