Omsk, officially the Siberian Black League, is a Russian warlord state located in West Siberia. It borders Tomsk to the north, Novosibirsk to the east, Kazakhstan to the south and Tyumen to the west.

The Black League itself is an ultra-militaristic extremist organization of former Soviet officers who have become convinced of Germany's permanent hostility. The suffering that the Nazis inflicted on Russia has fermented a deep sense of anger and utter hatred in the Black League's officers, and now the League intends to repay that hatred thousandfold through the "Great Trial", a prophesied final war between Germany and Russia that will decide the fate of both nations.

In-Game Description[edit | edit source]

Conceived by Dmitry Karbyshev, an old Red general who went through years of pain and hatred by the hands of Nazi invaders, the Black League of Omsk was originally a secret military society within the Red Army ranks that sought to overturn the incompetent Communist leadership and commit the whole Russian people to the total destruction of the loathed Germans, whatever the cost.

Following the failed coup against the Soviet government in Tyumen and the retreat to Omsk, the Black League has become entrenched in its extremist vision and seeks nothing but to bring its harsh vengeance upon all enemies of Russia and ensure that the Motherland will never be threatened again.

History[edit | edit source]

Corpse[edit | edit source]

Hope[edit | edit source]

The brightest flame had been flushed out by the darkest night, until all who remained were the children, a misguided flock clinging to dead ideologies and false hopes. Their plans foiled each other, until the successor slew itself - and out of its corpse, the Black League was born. The Russian people had forfeited their chance at prosperity, now thrown into a pit by the Teutonic Aggressor, doomed to witness generations waste away until justice be restored. The future is dead - but within the citadel city of Omsk burns a flicker of hope. Hope that one day the Russian people will climb out of the grave and into the light.

The Great Trial[edit | edit source]

The Great Trial approaches, but everybody else is blind to it - foretold by Dmitry Karbyshev, whose dying eyes now gaze upon a monster birthed from the darkest night. The officers of the Black League, led by Dmitry Yazov, rally for the last battle that will determine the fate of the world. When the sun sets, men speak in hushed tones across Siberia, telling of a black spot on the map from which emerge ominous clouds, marking the movements of soldiers without lines, conditioned to ruthlessly execute anyone who stands on the way of National Reclamation.

Philosophy[edit | edit source]

Survival[edit | edit source]

Indeed, the philosophy of the League preaches National Survival - the Russian people must be prepared for anything, be it the inevitable great trial or a nuclear apocalypse. unbeknownst to many, however, the New Guard of Omsk spiral further and further from Karbyshev's ideals. Within their iron hearts burns a passion for revenge on an unsurpassed scale. if the Black League is to remain stable, it must fuel the pyre with tales of conquest, for momentum is of the essence. The very concept of "civilian" must be stomped out until every plowshare becomes a sword, the Great Trial does not wait.

Enemies[edit | edit source]

Omsk is a city surrounded by enemies: communists in Tyumen, the renegade Red Army in Sverdlovsk, not to mention the various warlords around old Russia. Will the Black League crash and burn like its predecessor? Or will the night grow darker?

Fueled by Hate During the Last Trial, each of us saw and faced Hell on Earth. The Nazis razed our cities, slaughtered our families, and shattered the Union we worked so hard to build. And as the world unraveled around us, we resolved to never again allow the Teuton to despoil our homes. Never again would we tremble in fear as the jackboot trampled on our soil.

Whatever the cost, whatever the sacrifice, the day of the Great Trial will come.

On that day, they will feel our terrible vengeance.

Nothing Left to Lose Our backs are pressed against the wall, our supplies run low, and yet morale is as high as ever. Each and every son and daughter of the Black League know their mission and know they have nothing to lose, for the Last Trial already robbed them of everything. This simple truth has transformed the League from a band of disgruntled veterans to an army with discipline unparalleled in the Russian wastes.

We will survive our current, dire circumstances, we will rebuild what was lost, and when the Great Trial comes, we will repay our enemies for every life lost.

A Puppet in All but Name It is a sad fact that the founder of the Black League, General Karbyshev, is not as young as he once was. As he has aged, though his mind is as sharp as ever, his body has become frail and weak. The people weep to know that he is not long for this world; and yet not all is lost. The loyal sons and daughters of the Black League's officer corps are glad to receive and deliver General Karbyshev's orders, and even to reinterpret them when the General's mind has slipped.

It is a service that most are glad to perform, no matter how much the General begs for it to end.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ironically, according to a former developer of West Siberia, Omsk at one point had a National Socialist path as a "sane" option, due to now-former head developer Knightess wanting every region in Western Siberia to have multiple paths. This was changed after the other developers convinced them to have Omsk only have one path.
  • Omsk was partially inspired by the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia, a militant group that aspired to carve out an ethnic Armenian homeland in eastern Turkey.
