fsFu2iE.pngBY THE UNWAVERING AUTHORITY OF THE STATE AND THE REPUBLICAN MANDATE BESTOWED UPON THE ILLUSTRIOUS CHAMBER OF HEIDMEN, WE HEREBY ISSUE THIS IMPERIOUS MISSIVE, RESONATING WITH THE EMINENT VIRTUES OF HONOR, DUTY, LIBERTY, FRATERNITY, VALOR, AND WISDOM. WITH THIS COMMUNICATION, WE ENLIGHTEN THY READER UPON THE INTRICACIES OF STATECRAFT AND UNVEIL THE CURRENT AFFAIRS THAT ENGAGE OUR SOVEREIGN REALM.

Regarding this new Duke of Middelan,

“Who may stand between a bull and the golden pastures underneath the silver sun? Ours is power, ours is glory. Ours is freedom.

With the rise of the recently instituted Duke of Middelan, few utterances have wielded comparable influence. The Van Aert family, akin to an unwavering vessel navigating the tumultuous currents of impropriety and malevolence, surfaces prominently. Originating from the lineage of Valentin van Aert, the second offspring amidst the trio of Johannes, Gaspard, and himself, the unyielding spirit of a warrior has surged vigorously through Germanicus since his tender formative years.

Demonstrating an inborn aversion to the quill and parchment, Germanicus, akin to his siblings, gravitated away from the pursuits of literary expression and instead embraced the fray of combat against their adversaries—a path well-trodden within their familial heritage. Germanicus, from his earliest days, engaged in skirmishes against fellow youngsters, progressively evolving into the embodiment of a burgeoning soldier. Although an initiation into political affairs was initially eschewed, Germanicus traversed diverse realms, journeying across the newly unveiled continent in an unrelenting quest for precious artifacts while meticulously mapping the uncharted expanses.

Notably, it was Germanicus who not only dispensed with an affinity for conventional political livelihood after his upbringing but also navigated the unexplored reaches of the nascent landmass. The River Constantine, long attributed to its discovery by the inhabitants of the Kingdom of Aaun, is revealed to have been meticulously charted and endowed with its nomenclature by the very hand of Germanicus.

In the wake of Johannes van Aert's health decline, Germanicus received a compelling summons to abandon his foreign explorations and return to his family's midst, being recalled by Saskia van Aert. The familial call prompted his relinquishment of distant horizons in favor of resuming his residence within the familial fold. It was within this context that the unfolding narrative took an intriguing twist.

Upon his return, Germanicus found himself besieged by the odorous miasma and the dismal neglect that clung to various corners of the city. This prompted a profound response from him, catalyzed by the guiding influence of the spirit of St. Arpad and the ingenious prowess of both architects Ferrant Ashford and the 'Corsair Prince'. In a display of determination and vision, Germanicus embarked on a transformative endeavor that would redefine the urban landscape. Drawing inspiration from the past and infusing it with innovative concepts, he orchestrated a metamorphosis of the city, birthing a reimagined urban fabric that reflected his ideals.

A moment of decisive action was marked by his resonant proclamation, "I will make the heartlands great again!" This rallying cry echoed through the city's rejuvenation efforts, encapsulating Germanicus's commitment to restoring grandeur to every facet of the heartlands. It was amidst the mending of roads and the restoration of architectural splendor that this impassioned quote was attributed to him, encapsulating his vision for the city's revival.

As Johannes's health woes culminated in his relinquishment of the role of Duke, the annals of history witnessed a pivotal juncture. The Chamber of Heidman, armed with foresight, recognized the inherent value that the seasoned soldier possessed. This recognition crystallized into the unanimous understanding that he was eminently qualified to inherit the esteemed position of Captain-General. The chamber promptly elected him as the designated heir and successor. 

As Captain-General, the Duke of Middelan promotes liberty and equality to the subjects of the realm, while also honoring the rights of the titled nobility within the realm. He wishes to promote infrastructure renewal through the realms and promises to vanquish the enemies of the realm swiftly. Having been led into the Pax Veletziana by Johannes van Aert, the true golden age will be uncovered by Germanicus van Aert.

In his esteemed capacity as Captain-General, the Duke of Middelan fervently advocates for the ideals of freedom and impartiality, extending their benevolent reach to encompass every inhabitant of the expansive realm. In tandem, he honors the hallowed entitlements and prerogatives safeguarded within the upper echelons of titled nobility, nurturing a harmonious equilibrium between the aspirations of the common populace and the esteemed heritage of the aristocracy.

With an unswerving gaze fixed on progress, the Duke of Middelan envisions an ambitious trajectory of infrastructural revitalization that will traverse the very essence of the domains under his guardianship. This unwavering commitment to rejuvenation eloquently attests to his resolve to usher in an era of heightened living standards, wherein the symphony of modernity and tradition converge in an embrace of tranquil coexistence. His commitments are not mere eloquence but steadfast pledges to invigorate pathways, edifices, and communal amenities, thus propelling the realm towards a future imbued with vibrant hues of prosperity.

Amidst moments of peril that imperil the realm's tranquility, the Duke of Middelan stands resolute as a vigilant custodian, steadfast in his pledge to swiftly quell any impending adversaries. His martial acumen, sharpened through unrelenting dedication, stands poised to shield the realm's sovereignty, preserving the sanctity of its boundaries and safeguarding the well-being of its populace. His proclamation of triumph over the realm's antagonists isn't mere proclamation; rather, it stands as a testament to his unshakeable determination and his ability to command with strategic prowess.

Guided by the unassailable leadership of Johannes van Aert, the realm was gracefully ushered into the era of Pax Veletziana—a span characterized by tranquility and serenity that beckoned forth the nation's dormant potential. Yet, the Duke, Germanicus van Aert, animated by unyielding conviction and boundless determination, envisions an authentic golden era yet concealed. Through his stewardship, he aspires to unearth the realm's untapped grandeur, elevating it to unprecedented zeniths of achievement and distinction. In so doing, he etches his name upon the pages of history as a bona fide visionary and mastermind of prosperity.
