The Susla Affair (Creeperian Spanish: Amorío Sulsa), also known as the First Susla Affair, was a plot concocted by military officials of the Rakeoian Army and Rakeoian Navy to launch an attack on the Creeperian island of Susla with the goal of an eventual annexation.


Location of Susla.

The plan was originally presented as a military operation to leaders in Jinosiá as a possible operation from Olino Garrison's Fort Academy. It outlined how a naval blockade of Punto Sur, the largest city on the Creeperian island of Susla, followed by multiple landings in the largely unpopulated surrounding area of the island, could be used to effectively choke off the island's defenders from resupply. Due to the ongoing Creeperian Civil War, it was thought by officers that the operation would be overlooked by whomever the winner of the conflict was, while simultaneously solidifying Rakeoian naval influence in the Asequi Strait. However, when the plan was put forth to Prime Minister Alfonso Moreno Salinas, it was rejected.

On learning on the rejection of the plan, the officers, rather than abandoning the venture, swore themselves to secrecy, and proceeded with the plan anyway. The new plan was for head plotter, XXXX to coordinate the attack with the heads of the army and navy, respectively, ordering forces under their command to attempt the landings. The plotters believed that once the operation had begun, the civil authorities could be compelled into supporting the planned annexation.


On 23 May 1937, XXXX decided to betray the plot to the civil authorities, providing papers outlining requests that had been made to the quartermasters of armories throughout Olino and Paragon, as well as the complicity of the navy's leadership. He was provided with a personal estate in the small town of Monteta Filo as compensation for disclosing the operation. The first newspaper to report on the trial was the Paragon Inquirer on 15 July 1937.


The officers were arrested in the days following XXXX's testimony. Following testimonies that cleared most soldiers from culpability, a Jinosiá court sentenced the plotters to death. On 8 August 1937, all officers involved in the plot were hanged, marking it the largest mass execution ever conducted in Olino.
