  1. THE MULDAV COMPANY OF THE HAENSE ROYAL ARMY ‘The Chatnik Cannoneers’ “GIVE NOT, YIELD NOT” History Founded in the spring of 1773 following the death of Godfric Alimar ‘The Charred’ at the hands of Scyfling invaders, the Muldav Company was commissioned to the Princely House of Alimar for its years of unparalleled service to the realm, with the assent of His Royal Majesty, Sigismund II, King of Haenseni-Ruska and His Excellency, the Lord-Marshal Erwin Barclay, Duke of Reinmar. Serving the purpose of utilising newly unearthed military technologies such as the Chatnik Blastbow, an alchemical marvel invented by one Lothar Vladislav Alimar, along with other alchemical weaponry and acting as an extra-Reznian branch of the HRA within the the southern reaches of Haense, the Company can now safeguard the reclaimed territories and clear the lands of any straggling Ruberni barbarians. Today this band of cossacks serves under the banners of Hanseti-Ruska and Alimar as a unit of scouts and cannoneers in the forested lowlands of Haense, keeping peace in the borderlands and highways of the kingdom. Tenants OTHAMANIC DOCTRINE As a part of the HRA, soldiers of the Muldav Company are expected to face the following tenets, the Othamanic Doctrine, else they will face consequences. You shall hold no other allegiance, and be pure to your oath. Be not corruptible. Be calm, strong, polite, and resolute. Show valor in the field, and chivalry at home. Never surrender yourself nor your brothers; bring your honor, or death. Triumph through discipline. Submit to this law; First my orders, then myself. Grasp the purpose of each duty, so you may one day take up the torch of leadership. Against an honorable foe, fight with chivalry, but to the dishonorable, extend no quarter. Keep true to your people. Offer your life in place of theirs. Be strong, true, and loyal to his Majesty and the Haense Royal Army. THE OATH OF SAINT KARL Moreover, all initiates who wish to rank up within the Haense Royal Army are expected to take the Oath of Saint Karl. Soldiers of the Muldav Company do not have an exception. They will be expected to recite the following, To my left I see my fellow brothers, to the right I see the same. For all in the world, we fight for the peace of this land. Through God, he gave us stewardship of the realm. Through stewardship, we gained the knowledge of diligence and prudence. Through diligence, we may conquer all without fault. And if I should falter in my course, send me never to the skies above. If I should succeed, bestow unto me His blessings, forevermore. For now, I march into a valley through which there is no path. And the stones cascade behind me, to seal my retreat. Though in this valley, I find my Brothers, Now I am named Guardian of My Homeland. Should I falter, my shield shall turn to ash, But I shall not falter. THE OATH OF SAINT KARL PAYMENT, HONORS, AND MILITARY DECORATIONS Those soldiers who show great diligence in following the Othamanic Doctrine and respecting their Oath of Saint Karl will receive payment, honors and military decorations. The Muldav Company will house, feed, and arm all soldiers regardless of rank, and maintain appropriate conditions according to rank and stature. The awards and merits given by the Army are listed below Golden Crow of Valor, for those who performed beyond what was expected, a miracle through God in service to the Golden Crow of Haense. It is the most supreme of the medals in the Haeseni Royal Army, a medal pinned by His Majesty personally upon its recipient, and additionally granted a sum of minas. The medal is composed of a Golden Crow upon a black field. Cross of Saint Karl, rarely awarded and not given to those who simply die in battle, but only for those who die as a martyr in service of the Kingdom. It is a medal awarded posthumously to the closest of kin. It is a reminder of Saint Karl Barbanov, the progenitor of the Haeseni State. The medal is composed of a Golden Cross, with the initials K.B. inscribed onto it. Cross of Woldzmir, awarded to those who have defended their brothers in faith against tremendous odds while facing those of opposing religion, the Cross of Woldzmir is named after the famed warrior-woman Saint Emma Vladov and her strategic prowess during the Schismatic Wars of 1490. The medal is composed of a golden Hussariyan cross on a circular white background. Sparrow’s Valor, awarded to those who have proven capable in the ability of leading men, Sparrow’s Valor is named after Saint Thomas of Gaekrin, the once Crown Prince of Kaedrin who led countless victories in conquering the Elven State of Malinor and defending against the invading Dwarven Armies in the First Human-Dwarf War. The medal is composed of a black, flying sparrow across a yellow shield. Vydrian Banner, awarded to those men who rally up and defeat a greater force against all odds. Named after the late Orenian King Andrik Vydra, who took a broken Akovian people and lead them to victory against the violent hordes of Schismatic heretics, Orcish screamers, and Dwarven legionaries, it is a nearly impossible accommodation to achieve but a great honor. The medal is composed of a red gryphon on a black banner ordained in gold. Bulwark of Tobias, awarded to those who have shown great acts of valor during a defensive siege, the Bulwark of Tobias is named after the famous defense of Mount Augustus led by Tobias ‘Rosebud’ Carrion during the Orenian Civil War of 1456. The medal is composed of a red and black tower overlaying a gray shield in the background. And non-combative decorations, Labor Achievement Ribbon, for those who have worked tirelessly for the maintaining of functionality. Army Recruitment Ribbon, for those who have actively recruited men into the Army. Resolve Service Ribbon, for those who have served a minimum of eight years within the Army. Chain of Command The chain of command in the company is similar to that of the Haeseni Royal Army, however all lesser ranks than the Ranks of Command in the Company are different from that of the typical Brotherhood of Saint Karl ranks to avoid more confusion. The key distinction between the Muldav Company and the rest of the Army is their uniform, tactics and range. Whilst they are incorporated into the H.R.A and regardless of location all members must adhere to the Othomanic Doctrine as well as the direct orders of the Great Crown Commandant and Lord Marshal, the Muldav Company holds direct jurisdiction over the Alimar territories in southern Haense, superior to that of any other Company within the Haeseni Royal Army. In turn, the Muldav Company holds equal to (or in some cases lesser) jurisdiction in other areas of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska to their counterparts in the wider H.R.A, their main range being the lowlands of Haense and the crossroad portion of the King’s Road, between Reza, the River Ruber and Aldemar. RANKS OF COMMAND THE GRAND PRINCE OF MULDAV HIS HIGHNESS, JOSEF II ALIMAR, SIXTH GRAND PRINCE OF MULDAV Operating synonymously with the hierarchy of the Haense Royal Army, the Muldav Company is overseen by a Captain like any other, second only to the direct orders of the Great Crown Commandant and the Lord Marshal. Said Captain does, however, serve ceremoniously under the close scrutiny of the ancient Princely House of Alimar, styling their service as at the leisure of its patriarch - concurrently the Grand Prince of Muldav - as the Company’s figurehead. The Grand Prince’s allegiance is to the Crown of Haenseti-Ruska and its governing bodies. Warden of the Haeseni Lowlands, His Highness Joseph Audemar Alimar is the present keeper of keys, justice and peace in the territory. CAPTAIN CAPTAIN LOTHAR VLADISLAV ALIMAR The Captain serves the Grand Prince of Muldav figuratively, whilst acting as the literal commanding officer of the Muldav Company, second in rank to the Lord Marshall of the Haense Royal Army. Inventor of its signature weapon ‘the Chatnik Blastbow’, Captain Lothar is the only known manufacturer of ‘Bottled Wind’, on which the Chatnik Cannoneers depend for their munitions. LIEUTENANT The Lieutenant is a soldier who is a step above his peers. The Captain’s delegate for the day to day management of soldiers, entrusted with the authority to recruit, train and rally. Due to the diversity and importance of the role, there can be up to three Lieutenants at any given time. RANKS OF CANNONEER The uniform of the Cannoneer, designed for mobility above all else, notably lacking the cumbersome bodily plaitmail of less civilised militias from times passed. MAJOR A major is the toughest of the enlisted men, the highest Rank of Cannoneer. They are no stranger to combat as a veteran of many battles. An expert with the Blastbow and proficient with leading men, they may lead many operations. Armed with some of the finest equipment Muldav can offer, they are expected to take active leadership roles in and out of combat. GRENADIER A grenadier is one who seeks no further promotion or is incapable of receiving such. A veteran of the army, they may lead conjunctions with a Major, but must bow to their authority in such operations. A grenadier’s loyalty is unmatched; they are expected to be role models for those beneath them. MARKSMAN A marksman is one who must have especially mastered the Chatnik Blastbow. Also, a Marksman is tried and tested in battle, having proven their mettle on numerous occasions. It is from the vetted Marksmen that the leaders of tomorrow are selected. CANNONEER The Basic Cannoneer makes up the main bulwark of the Muldav Company. Having taken the oath and undergone several trials, their loyalty should be steadfast and their diligence to Othamanic Doctrine should be unquestioned. They are fully-fledged soldiers of the Haeseni Royal Army, and can operate a Chatnik Blastbow with skill. CADET The Cadet is a recently volunteered or conscripted soldier into the Company. Cadets will undergo many tests and trials to prove their loyalty, including learning how to operate a standard Chatnik Blastbow, before they are allowed to take the Oath of Saint Karl and become Basic Cannoneers. Additional Roles Muldav Quartermaster - The man responsible for arming the troops of the Company. As Muldav offers the finest military equipment, only the most trusted men will be given this task. Muldav Physician - An officer responsible for the upkeep of soldiers’ health. Muldav Chaplain - A priest of the Church of Canon who provides religious guidance for cannoneers. Muldav Company Standard-Bearer - This model soldier and patriot will be entrusted with the sacred honor of carrying either the Alimar or Haense Royal Army banner into battle. Drummer - This man is entrusted and skilled with keeping a rhythm, so to keep formation in the ranks and strike fear in the enemy. ENLISTMENT The Company accepts all who have a desire to serve the House of Alimar, King and Country. One must have seen at least 16 winters. ENLISTMENT APPLICATION FOR THE MULDAV COMPANY OF THE HAENSE ROYAL ARMY Full Name: Date of Birth: Place of Birth: Race: Gender: Address [if not applicable, N/A]: Status of Blood [Commoner, Nobility, Gentry, etc]: State your purpose for enlisting: OOC Minecraft Username: Discord: IV JOVEO MAAN, His Royal Majesty, King Sigismund II of Hanseti-Ruska, Grand Hetman of the Army, Prince of Dules, Ulgaard, Lahy, Sorbesborg and Slesvik, Duke of Carnatia and Vidaus, Margrave of Rothswald, Count of Graiswald, Karikhov, Baranya, Kvasz, Kavat, Karovia, Kovachgrad, Torun, Turov, and Kaunas, Baron of Rytsburg, Venzia, Esenstadt, Krepost and Kralta, Lord of Alban, Reza and Markev, Lord of the Westfolk, Protector of the Highlanders, etcetera His Excellency, Erwin Barclay, Lord Marshal of Hanseti-Ruska, Duke of Reinmar, Count of Kretzen, Baron of Freising and Sigradz His Highness, Josef II Barbanov-Alimar, Grand Prince of Muldav, Margrave of Chatnik
  2. Josef Alimar would be absolutely overwhelmed with grief upon hearing of the death of Amelya, just after he had found his dead father. Having never cleared up his petty quarrels with her, he would have to apologize to a ghost... But despite his obvious temper in situations like this, he’d instead lock himself into his room and gently play piano – pieces that Amelya had taught him some time ago.
  3. Josef Alimar sits on his new toilet in Muldav gloriously, reading over the missive.
  4. BRALT’S FOLLY The coat of arms of House Alimar TO THE NEFARIOUS BRALT AND THE SCYFLINGS, You, Bralt, have disgraced your own people. Not only those who follow the customs of your own culture, but those whom you have brought across the sea to needlessly die. Those who have shed their blood for your false prophecy. Sons have been ripped from their fathers, and fathers ripped from their sons. And yet, you disrespect and desecrate them, despite their sacrifice. On a day of peace and festival, the Moonfire, you call it - a day so adored by your people that they would drink with their enemies, you saw fit to ambush and kill. On a day where one might see the humanity between us, you saw fit to butcher and ravage. On a day where your people put nonviolence above all else, you were violent. And I urge all Scyflings who have a respect for your own way of living - denounce this vile Bralt, and rise against him. That, or return from whence you came. This is not the man who you would follow into battle. His honor is worth my spit, and you are more than that. His Crowslayer’s Vow is one of deceit - you know not of your prophecy, instead he uses this as a device and means for power and blood. Heed my word…. For there will be no more Moonfires. Bralt, the man who decapitated my father and ordered my cousin’s death on a day of your peace, has provoked you Scyflings to the highest extent. If, however, you carelessly remain idly at his side, there shall be no mercy. I will tear your families as you have torn mine and burn your puny camps in which you illegally settle. And I will have Bralt’s head. GIVE NOT, YIELD NOT, Josef II, Red Prince of Muldav

  6. “Somehow saltier than my grave,” says Henrik Vanir who is buried in the depths of the salty ocean
  7. THE SERPENT’S SILENCE Henrik Vanir, c. 1749 Henrik Vanir stood atop his balcony, mustering the little strength that remained in his frail body to gaze upon Vasiland. The familiar salty breeze whipped against his pale skin, dancing through his rough grayed hair as the faint sound of waves crashing against the coast emanated through the air. “Home” He thought, finally having built the home he had often dreamt of for his family. The Margrave’s attention snapped to familiar figures standing upon the coastline to see his greatest gifts, his children: Brandon, Vasili, and Sofiya. With them sat his first grandchild wading in the shallow waters as his giggles of joy echoed from by the sea. His shoulders began to relax from their once ridged position, a weak smile forming on his visage as the agony he had been enduring over the past several years had seemed to subsided. His vision began to blur as the single giggle multiplied to the giddy laughter of three children dancing across the coarse sand. The children that he saw were his own just as they were in their childhood. A soft voice was heard coming from the eldest son, “Papej, papej! Look at me!” The young heir stood at the beach holding a simple wooden sword, sparring with his younger brother as their sister sat playing in the sand. The touch of a hand against his shoulder jolted Henrik from the aberration. The hand belonged to his brother, Fiske, who beckoned him back inside the confines of his castle. The lord trudged back to the solitude of his bed, reclining back into the warm and inviting blankets. Fiske would station himself near the door, observing his fragile brother with a grimace before he began, “You ought to be in bed, why waste your strength going to the balcony?” A long silence ensued, before Henrik replied with strain in his voice, “Those were my children.” “Well, you have time to see all of them soon,” Fiske responded, not seeming convinced himself. Another cough, and another moment of silence from Henrik before he finally acknowledged Fiske, “No… I don’t.” Lord Vanir would slowly turn his head to Fiske. The usually-stoic man’s gaze was welled with tears as he spoke “Leave me on my own now, if you were ever my brother, if you ever remotely had some feeling for me,” he would say in a raspy, quiet voice. His younger brother would frown, looking at Henrik with some anguish before shaking his head and moving to depart. “Goodbye, Henrik.” He would say, and leave, closing the door behind him. Henrik would lay on his sickbed, restless from cold sweats and the incessant coughing. His empty visage remained fixated on the foot of the bed, and the only thing in earshot was the tide crashing against the shores of Vasiland. He drew a single jagged breath, his muted emerald eyes shutting as the serpent slipped into his endless slumber. “The boat sails by, the shore remains.” REQUIESCAT IN PACE MARGRAVE HENRIK VANIR 1718 - 1766 271 - 319 The Sea Bows to None.

  8. THE DESIDERATUM OF THE ROYAL DUMA Memoirs of the VI Herzen, Henrik Vanir (1765) As I confine myself to my study tonight, deciding to pen these memoirs as my predecessors have, I realize the necessity of the position of Royal Herzen and its prerequisites; integrity, honor, incorruptibility. As I get older, I’d hope to define myself by this office and its ideals. In truth, I live by the job now – and acquiring these traits as I may have has taken my full dedication. Endured have I the full experience of the Royal Duma, and along with it the side effects – it causes anger, parents arguments, forges some cooperation, but most importantly, constitutes a room where the bright, and dare I say combustible, lords and officials can come together to do something more than debate over bills – their voices help function the great Hanseti-Ruska, an entity bigger than just the chamber. And that is why I write today. The desideratum, the sanctity, the necessity of the Royal Duma. Many question the relevance or need of the august body; after all, we are governed by our true leader, the rightful King of Hanseti-Ruska. While the rule of the King is certain and true (hence his ability to veto anything he does not see fit to be in place), the Duma provides something one man cannot – a collective of individuals, not-so like-minded, with varying ideas for prosperity. It is not a means of government, per say, though it is (how the V Herzen, Sigmar Baruch wrote) “a legislative body composed of nobility, gentry, and peasantry alike in which they aid in the governance of His Majesty’s demesne.” The accessibility and diversity of it alone is a reason for its desideratum – it gives those from the smallest corner of Reza to Counts and Dukes a voice that is heard. When the chamber is used correctly, it is a means for progress. When it is used incorrectly, it can destructive or divisive. In stagnation, the chamber feels useless, but I assure all that the body is necessary. For all of these reasons, I urge every citizen to be well-informed on the affairs of Duma, and even attempt to forge their own political career. I urge future Royal Herzens to understand the ideals I’ll now reiterate – integrity, honor, incorruptibility. And I urge all lords to not take their Duma privileges for granted; they are a gift, and an exhibition of the benevolence of our royal leadership. Signed, Henrik Vanir, VI Herzen

  10. “Such is why the Benches in the Royal Duma were dissolved – to avoid the tribalism and partisanship that is inherent in any system with formal ‘sides.’” The Lord Speaker would sigh, “Time will tell if this will be any different. Both sides must remember their true goals of helping the people through all the divisions this may cause.”

  12. Henrik Vanir nods at his son-in-law’s address, “I think he will achieve great heights.”
  13. DISSOLUTION OF THE BENCHES Issued by the Lord Speaker, Henrik Vanir | Confirmed by His Majesty, Sigismund II 9th of Joma and Umund, 316 ES Va Birodeo Herzenav e Edlervik, Under the Lord Speaker Sir Konrad Stafyr, the august body of the Royal Duma saw fit to decree the establishment of ‘benches’ within the chamber. These literal and figurative seats are where lords and representatives choose to sit alongside like-minded men and women who share similar political philosophies. At the beginning of the Benches tenure, they were far from political divisors - they were simply ideologies, formally integrated into the chamber so the Duma could be more effective via harmonious individuals working together. However, as we examine the efficiency and effectiveness of the chamber under this system today, we find that the Benches no longer yield the same results as they have prior. When one chooses to define themself as “feudalist” or “centralist”, they find themselves at odds with their counterpart due to the divisions that have formed and the sense of tribalism present. We must always be reminded that the Haeseni system does not condone the establishment of political parties. Therefore, the Royal Herzen decrees the following, I. The “Benches” featured in the Royal Duma will henceforth be dissolved. A. The Feudalist bench will no longer be represented within the august body, B. The Centralist bench will no longer be represented within the august body, C. The Crossbench will no longer be represented within the august body. II. No ideologies may be formally represented within the Royal Duma. IV JOVEO MANN, His Royal Majesty, King Sigismund II of Hanseti-Ruska, Grand Hetman of the Army, Prince of Dules, Ulgaard, Lahy, Sorbesborg and Slesvik, Duke of Carnatia and Vidaus, Margrave of Rothswald, Count of Graiswald, Karikhov, Baranya, Kvasz, Kavat, Karovia, Kovachgrad, Torun, Turov, and Kaunas, Baron of Rytsburg, Venzia, Esenstadt, Krepost and Kralta, Lord of Alban, Reza and Markev, Lord of the Westfolk, Protector of the Highlanders, etcetera His Excellency, Henrik of the House of Vanir, Lord Speaker of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, Margrave of Vasiland, Baron of Kraken’s Watch and Lorentz
