I. Appointment to the Ashen Council

The Ashen Council has been in urgent need of reorganization and reformation of late. The offices being lax or vacant in the recent days as internal turmoil has wracked the realm. In light of these circumstances, we have deemed fit to appoint new individuals of note to these offices that they may contribute to the growing prosperity of the realm at large.

 

To the Office of Chancellor we do call Torsten of Ruric and to his deputy Office we do call Robin of Volaren. We do entrust the duties of this office to the aforementioned and trust that they will serve the realm to the utmost of their capabilities.

 

To the Office of Purser we do call William Panem of Nordengrad. We do entrust the duties of this office to the aforementioned and trust that they will serve the realm to the utmost of their capabilities.

 

To the Office of Marshal we do call Ryon of Errmark. We do entrust the duties of this office to the aforementioned, and do trust that they will serve the realm to the utmost of their abilities.

 

II. The Offices of the Small Council

The small folk of the Earldom’s day to day affairs must be governed by those drawn from their ranks. Thus the offices of the Small Council will be filled from election rather than appointment. Those offices are as follows. The Office of Mayor will be responsible for organizing the harvest, the management of the town herds, the organization of religious festivals of note, and the appointment of stewards. Whilst the Office of Mayor attends to the day to day administration of smallfolk affairs the Office of Sheriff ensures the peace is kept. The Office of Sheriff shall be responsible for the manning of the gates, conducting contraband raids in search of illegal substances, ensuring merchants conduct business in marks and with licences, breaking up town altercations, keeping the fire watch during the night, keeping the town keys, and appointing deputies to assist them in their work. The Office of Mayor and the Office of Sheriff shall be respectively acknowledged by the Earl with a badge of office.

 

III. Elections for the Small Council

The turmoil of the realm has greatly delayed the elections for positions within the Small Council were also delayed. However as the realm has once more stabilized it has become necessary for the folk of Nordengrad and the surrounding holdfasts to choose from amongst their ranks individuals to carry about the management of the smallfolk. As such we shall be opening elections for the Mayor and Sheriff of Nordengrad. Those who cannot read or write are to ask a local Keeper or Priest to assist them.

IV. Establishing the Nordengradic Mint

We do officially establish the Aristocratic Corporation of the Nordengradic Mint. The Nordengradic Mint shall be held in perpetuity by the Lord of Nordengrad. The Mint shall issue Nordengradic Marks unto the populace for use in commerce and taxation. The Mint shall also issue large quantities of marks to Banks and large scale enterprises and corporations that conduct business within the confines of the Earldom. The Nordengradic Mint shall be divided into one hundred shares. Earl Thoromir Edvardsson is in possession of Eight Nine of those shares. Goodman Alexander Leydon Arden is in possession of Ten of those shares. And Goodman William Pane is in possession of One of those shares. The Throne of Nordengrad may never be in possession of less than a majority of the shares. This to ensure that foreign interests never foul the economic governance of the realm.

 

V. The Canonist Church and its limitations within the Earldom

In compliance with Imperial Decree, the Earldom of Nordengrad shall take in a priest and his proxies. These individuals shall be based in the fortress monastery of Westfort on the western end of town past the Fischall. This edifice shall house the canonist faith within the Earldom and will doubly serve as whatever variant of temple or church the incumbent priest so desires. However, the laws of the realm still apply. Proselytizing must be conducted exclusively within this structure. The persecution of Fatherists or the application of Canon law over Fatherist law will under no circumstances be tolerated. Nor will the usurpation of clerical authority within the confines of the Earldom. Canonists may wear the icons of their faith openly and move freely within the Earldom, provided they do not harass or attempt to suppress Fatherists.

 

VI. Establishing the Barony of Bairseach

In light of the loyalist Mournstones and the recent resolution of their internal clan conflicts, combined with the growth of that elder clan. We have deemed it fit to grant the clan of Mournstones a Holdfasts proper to reflect both their scale, their prolonged loyalty and the esteemed status of their bloodline within the Earldom. Thus we do establish the Barony of Bairseach on the eastern march of the Earldom. The Barony shall overlook the Northway, with that road serving as its western limit with the woods of the Eastmarch limiting it to the north and east. The southern confine of the Barony proper shall be held as the Lochmoors which border the entirety of the Earldom proper.

 

VII. Minting the Half Mark

We do recognize the increasing liquidity and commerce conducted with the Nordengradic Mark minted in our name. However it is an apparent issue that the Nordengradic Mark is oft a mark comprising of too great a value to be used to purchase common goods at a reasonable quantity for daily consumption. Thus we have deemed it fit to commission the Nordengradic Mark to mint a new specie of coin. We have termed this coin the Nordengradic Half Mark. As such it shall hold half the value of its greater kin. With a single half mark being exchanged at a rate of five minas at the Nordengradic Exchange.

 

VIII. Acknowledging New Great Clans

As the wealth and population of the realm proper has grown old clans have returned to the fold whilst others have grown of their own accord into true forces in their own right. Thus we must recognize these new clans and offer them their rightful seat upon the council of Chiefs. Firstly, we do welcome the Clan of Volaren back into the fold. The blood of old is always welcome amongst our ranks. Thusly we do grant one Robin of Volaren the status of Chieftain and confer upon him the right to seat at the council of Chiefs. With the return of old blood we welcome the descendants of one Gareth Errmark back amongst the Father’s children. The Clan of Errmark is acknowledged as a Greater Clan of the realm. We do confer the status of Chieftain upon one Ryon Errmark that he may lead his family in the name of his ancestors.

 

IX. A Conference of Faith

As a bearer of the Herald’s blood and High Chieftain of the Rurikid, I do call the Patriarch and the Keepers to a Conference of Faith. That we may discuss the coming of Hallow’s Eve and prepare accordingly. In addition to this we must discuss the selection of new neophytes into the Holy Hearth as well as the Ordainment of new Brothers and Sisters to spread the Father’s light. Finally I would like to discuss candidates for ascension to Paragonship, having had several Keepers make reports of holy visions to mineself. Let us gather and discuss these matters of Faith that we may guide the Father’s children down the proper path.

 


Writ en Namen De

Thoromir Edvardsson Ruric II, Earl of Nordengrad, Chieftain of the Edvardssons, High Chieftain of the Rurikid, Defender of the Faith, Blood of the Herald.
