  1. Emil watches from the Seven Skies with a furrowed brow.
  2. A Final Farewell I write this in hopes to make amends with the people of Aaun, and my own family of the house Alstion. I formally revoke and renounce any claim I, or my children might ever have in the throne of Aaun. With my most sincere apology to my father, The Prince of Alstion, Charles I, I didn't mean to ever cause issues or turbulence for you or your nation, I am sorry. And with my most sincere apology to my brother, The Lord of Alba, James Leopold, I am sorry for ever tormenting or speaking against your claim to throne, you are the rightful heir to the nation of Aaun, this is something I cannot and will not change. My return has been appreciated by few, and to those few I say thank you, but the sea calls me back. I hope that any tension or worry of my return is swiftly settled and resolved, as my presence will no longer be something to worry of, nor will the chances or possibility of my line sitting on the throne of Aaun. Please do not treat my children differently because of the flaws in my actions and words, let them walk among you all like you would any other, they are innocent, and should be treated like such. This being the last time I am heard publicly, I will have it be known as my wish. Robert Owyn, my second son, you will be raised by your elder brother, Caius. To you I leave my circlet of platinum, and tartan, I hope you wear these both with pride. Caius Godwin, my first son, I leave you with the responsibility of raising Robert. And to you also I leave the navy, all ships, and my glaive of lunarite. I pray in my absence you both will take great care and importance of the health and safety of your mother, Lucia, as well as both of your sisters, Alexandria and Lyanna. All other valuables of mine will be left in storage until Robert Owyn comes of age to lead this family of ours, only then will he decide what happens to these items, and to whom they belong. With this I bid you all farewell, Aaun will live forever in me. TANDEM TRIUMPHANS. Humbly, Prince Emil Caius of Aaun [!] Shortly after writing and sending out copies of this letter around the lands of Aaun, Emil would drag behind him a chest of all his belongings, a note atop it "For Caius". The Prince making his way out of the city of Florentine, he would find a tree just by the river, a comfortable little spot. There is where Emil would look to the water and smile, a stray tear rolling down his cheek as he hummed the anthem of his recently formed navy. After a few moments of thinking back on his life, it would be done, Emil Caius would take his own life under that tree, laying there with a smile on his face. [!]
  3. Emil Caius screams in pain and sorrow at the hearing of this news. One of his greatest friends and teachers robbed of his life. The hands of the Prince shaking as he would go through fits of denial. "He's a Wick, he can't be gone so easily!" The Alstion shouts, slamming his fist into the desk of his quarters, walking out to the deck of his ship and looking to the skies above with a few stray tears rolling down his cheek. "Until we meet again, Bult." He'd mutter, slowly shutting his eyes, standing in disbelief. Siegmund Wick turns a wicked smile under his damned helm, a smile so wide flesh and sinew ripping audibly from the sides of his mouth. "Another page in Wickstory is turned.." The knight of rot hums, a few loose and very animal cackles being let out into the deep, cursed woods of Dobrov. Standing slowly from his stoop the knight would turn to face in the direction of the Wick's death. "We will meet soon, nephew." The shepherd would bark to the air, beginning to march off, a shrouded and terrible figure behind him, trailing along slowly. "WE AREN'T DONE YET"

IN SEARCH OF NEW HORIZONS, HRH, Emil Caius, Duke of Balamena, First Sea-Lord and Admiral of The Aaunic Royal Navy Vice-Admiral, Caius Godwin, Second Sea-Lord of The Aaunic Royal Navy The Right Honorable, Sir Emir of Abbassia, Count of Pacidia, Viscount of Merville, Baron of Rosina, Master of Logistics and Rear-Admiral of The Aaunic Royal Navy
  5. Emil Caius does not appreciate this outcome.
  6. ____________________________________________________________________________ My hands are clean. It has recently come to my attention that I have been framed for such a heinous and GODless act. A letter has surfaced claiming to be written by my close friend and mentor, Bult Wick, stating that it was I who was responsible for the disappearance and supposed death of the missing Sarkozic girl. This matter had only even come to my attention after settling the horrifying crimes done to my friend Sigismond Varoche, to claim I would do such a terrible thing in a time of mourning is truly disgusting. I am sure this is one of the poor plots and attempts by these Adrian vermin to stir unrest in our people, the people of Aaun. But do not let such false claims concern you, my hands are clean, and my blade at rest. I was informed that this Sarkozic girl was seen returning to Velec after returning the bodies to Bult and I. What happened to the girl can only be assumed as terrible and stomach-turning. On her walk home she was most likely picked up by those same Adrian soldiers that should be protecting her life, yet I only imagine they took it instead. The Adrian men who seek to destroy our home, and harm our innocent citizenry do the same to their own, all in hopes of doing harm to me. If you doubt my words, I invite you to Vienne. My palms will be turned over, and my hands clean of any crime. My hands and blade will rest, waiting to raise for the coming battle, then, and only then, will my hands be stained with the red ichor of these Adrian scoundrels.

DRINKING GAME: THE CASK RACE The Aaunic Royal Navy has a tradition of holding a drinking game known as the Cask Race. This game is usually played on the eve of a major naval battle or when the crew has returned from a successful voyage. The game involves a race where crew members must drink a full cask of ale as fast as they can. The crew members who finish their cask first win the race. The Cask Race is not only a test of drinking ability, but also of endurance and mental strength. It is seen as a way to build camaraderie among the crew and to celebrate the hard work they have put in during their voyage. THE NAVY HYMN The Aaunic Royal Navy has a traditional chant/song known as the Navy Hymn. The Navy Hymn is sung by the crew during important ceremonies such as the commissioning of a new ship, the promotion of an officer, or the laying of a wreath in honor of fallen comrades. The Navy Hymn is a solemn and respectful song that honors the sacrifices made by those who serve in the Navy. It speaks to the bravery and courage required to face the dangers of the sea, and the importance of the Navy in protecting the nation's interests. Verse 1: Oh hear us, Lord, we pray to thee As we set sail upon the sea Our ship is strong, our crew is brave Guide us safely through each wave Chorus: For we are the sailors of the Aaunic Royal Navy Bound by duty, honor, and loyalty We stand united, through storm and strife Protecting our land and way of life Verse 2: Our journey takes us far from shore To battle foes and win once more We face the unknown with steady hand And fight for freedom throughout the land Chorus: For we are the sailors of the Aaunic Royal Navy Bound by duty, honor, and loyalty We stand united, through storm and strife Protecting our land and way of life Verse 3: When our time on earth is done And we return to where we begun May our legacy be one of pride As we rest forever by the tide Chorus: For we are the sailors of the Aaunic Royal Navy Bound by duty, honor, and loyalty We stand united, through storm and strife Protecting our land and way of life. THE CROSSING OF THE SEAS The Aaunic Royal Navy celebrates the successful completion of a voyage around the continent with a festival known as the "Crossing of the Seas". This festival marks the end of the training period for a new class of navy men who are graduating to become full members of the crew. It is a time of great celebration, camaraderie, and honor. The festival begins with a grand parade through the town, led by the ship's captain and crew. The new graduates are adorned in their finest uniforms, carrying the flags of the United Kingdom of Aaun and the Aaunic Royal Navy. They march alongside their fellow crew members who have successfully completed the journey around the continent. After the parade, the crew gathers for a grand feast in honor of the occasion. Tables are set with the finest foods and drinks, including roasted meats, fresh fruits, and ale. The captain gives a speech, recognizing the hard work and dedication of the new graduates and the entire crew who sailed the seas with them. They are presented with their official certificates, recognizing their successful completion of the training period and welcoming them as full members of the Aaunic Royal Navy. The festival continues with various games and competitions held throughout the day. The crew participates in a rowing competition, testing their strength and endurance as they race against one another in the sea. There is also a target-shooting competition, where the crew showcases their accuracy and skill with a bow and arrow. The winners of these competitions are presented with special awards, recognizing their talents and contributions to the crew. As the day comes to a close, the crew gathers for a final ceremony. A bonfire is lit on the beach, and the crew sings sea shanties and traditional songs, celebrating their journey around the continent and the new members who have joined their ranks.

  8. _________________________________________ THE HEART OF AAUN MOURNES. ____________________________________________________________________________ Sigismond Varoche has been murdered. It weighs heavily on my heart to write about such events and news. Just earlier this Saint’s night men and women, the scoundrels and vermin that call themselves Adria marched into Petra to disturb the peoples of such a neutral land. In this attack during the dead of night they marched out of Petra with one Sigismond Varoche and his ilk. Dragging them and treating them as nothing but animals, as they marched back to the walls of Velec. Once in Velec, I could only imagine what a terrible and unGODly sight they must have held to try and shame the rightful Duke of Adria, Sigismond. After what seemed an eternity of waiting I was notified of a sorrowful happening in those same GODless walls of Velec. Sigismond Varoche was killed. A good, righteous, and GOD loving man. He was robbed of his life by the hands and blades of heathens, surely ordered by the beast that is Heinrik Sarkozic. I cannot express how disgusted I am by the events that have unraveled tonight, and I will mourn for the late Varoche men and women, for it is they, that we will fight on in this rebellion of Adrian rats. I pray for those harmed and affected in Petra, my heart is with you all. And I will forever pray for those who did such terrible acts to be punished in an eternal damnation, for what they did is an action only those of Iblees might engage.

  9. Emil Caius readies himself for the wedding, a set of rings rolling around in the palm of his hand. The Prince hosts an almost childish smile over his lips, sharing a drink with his son, Caius Godwin. "Perhaps you will find yourself a lady soon?" Emil says to Caius with a hearty laugh soon after.
  10. Emil Caius looks at the missive with a confused gaze. "I swear I just saw this a bit ago.."
  11. Siegmund Wick wonders what this nonesense is, "THIS IS NOT WICKO MODE!!" He says with a shaking fist at the notice.
  12. Emil shrugs because the post was copy and pasted.
  13. MOMENTS TOO SOON An announcement of birth. On the 16th of Sigismund’s End, 1897 - A red haired boy was found as his mother left the lands of the Kingdom of Aaun. The boy bore a resemblance to his great-grandfather, Leopold John Alstion; having the same hair and eyes as that of an Alstion. As he was found by his father, Prince Emil Caius, Duke of Balamena, abandoned in the Grafschaft of Minitz, he was returned into the arms of his father. The boy named Caius Godwin, found himself in the lap of his father once again, ready to be raised as Caius “The Bastard Prince” Godwin Jrent. The boy is to be raised by his biological father, the Prince Emil, Duke of Balamena, despite the circumstances of his birth. Signed, HRH, Prince Emil Caius Duke of Balamena [A fingerprint of Caius Godwin Jrent]
  14. Emil Caius works away, through night and day. The Prince's hardhat staying on until the job is done!
