  11. The 11th of Tobias’ Bounty, 1853 ARTICLE XIII One calls it “The Return of The Aster Prince”, a prophecy created upon the return of His Imperial Majesty Philip III and his noble consort, Empress Anastasia. Their Imperial Majesties first descended upon the Principality of Savoy, and so the Prince of Savoy acknowledged Their Imperial Majesties as the true rulers of the Holy Orenian Empire, declaring his aid for them to cement their righteous rebellion. The House of Sarkozic welcomed their kinsman, Philip III with open arms and many other Houses bent the knee in support of his throne. Her Imperial Majesty called the following motto “RALLY THE FAITHFUL”; a motto we still stand by, from this day forward and for the years to come. The Michaelite Schism began as something that we all believed to be true, but it was not. This schism was something that became the ultimate downfall of our relationship with the Church of the Canon and it had caused more than just an excommunication. The Pontiff created a response to what the Emperor and Empress had declared, and so declared them as EXCOMMUNICATED. After the Pontiff had declared their excommunication, the Emperor and Empress sent out letters to the new Holy See of the High Pontiff, which became the Basilica of St Henrik in Karosgrad. The High Pontiff would only accept them upon his property if Their Imperial Majesties had done a walk of Penance; walking past the ones who are continuously throwing tomatoes at them as they do it. And so Their Imperial Majesties did it, they did the walk of Penance - but what was to follow was not as one would expect. Her Imperial Majesty got accused of assassinating her own father in law, Prince Philip Aurelian. But us loyal citizens of the Empire know that this can not be true, for we know that the Northerners always held something against us as an Empire. There was chaos when such happened, and so the man who was supposed to be seen as “Holy” became known as Yaromir ‘The Lustful’. A stain for our Imperial lands for he has set foot upon them for far too long in his miserable life of being a false pontiff. The Urguani-Orenian war, a war that has been declared since the reign of Philip II, nicknamed “The Fiddler”. The war is said to be started as a collection of Holy Knights, in the company of the then Cardinal Allobrogum Johan Vuiller and Duncan Vuiller began to chase Ireheart heathens off the land of House Vuiller. This was with the intent to kill the heathens for they had threatened to kill clergymen and any bystanders as they stood near the abbey of St Harald. This matter was brought to Philip II and by then a war was declared between the Holy Orenian Empire and the heathens of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan. This sparked the war which was named the Urguani-Orenian conflict, with many raids of the Urguani alliances and their many attempts to breach into the walls of New Providence under the rule of Philip III. Surely our brave soldiers of the Imperial State Army have taught them a lesson and have slain the enemy to the last. The Imperial State Army is doing everything that is necessary to defeat the heathen tripartite coalition of the wee dwarves, the disgusting ferrymen and the traitorous northerners of Hanseti-Ruska. Us Imperials are sure to win this war against this coalition that has been “blessed” by the false pontiff. By the Grace of GOD, that most holy tempore of those blessed into GOD’s divine class. The tradition of Social Season has officially been removed; abandoning our former tradition of using this week of festivities to find future suitors. But instead we now use this week to show the status of the Houses of the participants. Us Imperials surely look forward to the new changes of the Astercalia and can not wait to experience it for ourselves. The Reform of New Providence and our New Mayoral Government. With not only the Imperial capital having a new look, we also have new reforms of Providence when we speak of trade, political affairs, and festivities! New Providence has become the capital that we hoped for it to be; a new beginning for humanity and beyond. Trade has expanded enormously, people dedicate themselves to keeping the Imperial capital safe, What else could one wish for? GOD has truly blessed the citizens of the Empire with the city of New Providence. Ave Orenia! Written by Joseph Clement de Sarkozy.
  12. The Imperial Ban of Anna Elizaveta Tuvyic It is with sadness and disapproval that the Imperial Crown has borne witness to the proclamation of Lady Tuvyic, who has acted treasonously whilst harboring unbidden and apparent sympathies for the Enemy; whilst her own mother Charlotte Augusta arranges secret meetings with foreign leaders and dignitaries in an attempt to usurp the Crown and thrust the Realm of Man into chaos. With a tenuous grasp upon her own lands, Anna Elizaveta Tuvyic sewed dissent within the Holy Orenian Empire, pledging that until such a day that the Emperor and Empress resign their positions, Woldzmir shall not sally to the support of the Orenian people. With the influence of her noble pedigree, she has sought to justify the attacks of the Nonhuman Coalition, whilst her own Canonist people suffer and die at the hands of Highwaymen, Haeseni, and Dwarven invaders. No doubt the noble Ostromir Carrion, First Count of Dobrov, rolls in his grave knowing that his own progeny have sought to discredit the Empire he helped build. Anna Elizaveta Tuvyic was entreated to meet with the Crown and promised safety. Instead, at the behest of the insurgent Charlotte Augusta, she has co-opted her mother’s mission of spreading disinformation and acting in support of the invaders, throwing tantrums in court and dispatching bulletins to incite rebellion. We solemnly condemn the dissent against the Orenian people and the support of the enemies of Oren, who seek to slaughter our valiant citizens and soldiers, and to expand into the territories that rightfully belong to our people. Thus, as they flout the laws of the Empire, Woldzmir’s contempt is met with the following motion. After much deliberation, the Adriatic Court, composed of Noble Peerage, has reached a direct conclusion. Voted AYE by: I) The Duchess of Auvergne II) The Count of Azor III) The Countess of Halstaig IV) The Count of Susa V) The Count of Temesch VI) The Baron of Carrington VII) The Baron of St. Lothar Henceforth, by the decision of the Imperial Crown, advised by the Adriatic Court: I) Anna Elizaveta Tuvyic is stripped of the Barony of Woldzmir, II) Stripped of her privilege of governing the municipality of Dobrov. III) Fyodor Ostrovich, son of the late Ostromir Carrion, is legitimized, recognized as his lawful son with all accompanying right of inheritance, succession, etc, IV) Granted the County of Dobrov, the Barony of Woldzmir, and the privilege to govern the municipality of Dobrov, V) Given full legal authority to secure Dobrov in the name of the Empire. SIGNED, HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Philip III, Holy Orenian Emperor, forever August, King of Renatus, Curon, Kaedrin, Salvus, and Seventis, Grand Duke of Ves, Helena, Novellen, Furnestock and Lorraine, Baron of Renzfeld, Protector of the Heartlanders, Orenian Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera HER IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Anastasia of Kositz, Empress consort of the Holy Orenian Empire, Duchess consort of Furnestock
  13. TRANSCRIPT OF THE FIRST MAYORAL DEBATE OF NEW PROVIDENCE On the 10th of Harren’s Folley, 1851 Valentino Gradic: “Alright. Welcome to the first Mayoral debate of New Providence, we have our candidates Judge Henrik Komnenos and former Alderman Edith Hope.” Valentino: “To begin we'll be starting off with each candidate providing an introductory statement, starting with Judge Komnenos.” An ogre walks up to moderators Valentino Gradic and Aubergine de la Baltas. He makes clear his intent to run as a third mayoral candidate! Henrik Komnenos: “Greeting people of Providence. Many of you may already know who I am or at least know of me…” There is a minor interruption as Valentino’s voice cracks while asking the ogre, Bub, his address of residence. Henrik answers. A crossbowman seated in the audience draws a bead on Bub’s head! Nevertheless, Henrik continues, “I was Lord Mayor once in Providence, where the city saw growth and many of its issues were put into the grave under my leadership…” “I wish to run,” the crossbowman raucously stands, announcing his own campaign for mayor. Bub takes a stand between the two other candidates, fidgeting in anticipation of his turn. Valentino Gradic interjects: “Please let Mister Komnenos finish his introduction, thank you.” Henrik, undeterred, continues, “... And I wish to help our newly reformed capital see even more growth, and its people feel they are listened to. I'm a family man. A business man.” He gives a second’s pause, “but what matters the most I'm a man of the people.” Henrik: “I will yield my turn for now.” Aubergine de la Baltas: “Next! Edith Hope will address the constituency!” Edith Hope: “I've served Oren for forty years in the ISA, and twenty-four years as a City Alderwoman. I constructed the reformed municpal codex for Providence before the new City was built …” The crossbowman interjects yet again - “You're a terrorist!” He screams at Edith, “Haense supporter!” Aubergine, Valentino: “ORDER! ORDER, ORDER.” Edith Hope: “I've spent years working for the people in the City Government to better Providence, and with the new Government. I will seek to give universal income to those who cannot work, add increased benefits if you own a business and a house.” Edith: “God Bless Providence and God Bless the Holy Oren Empire. I yield the floor.” There is momentary confusion over whether the third candidate, Bub, had abandoned the hall entirely. After a moment of tense deliberation, the ogre bursts into the hall again: Bub: “UGUUGG.” Valentino: “Bub may introduce themselves, upon providing the address of their residence.” Bub: “Me Addrezz bi Mane's Lane AZH.” He'd take a pause before speaking confidently once more, “Mi EZ BUB agh mi Ez Runnin Fo Mayor. Be ez HOZh IZA love, HOZH.” The Obedia family interjects from the stands, Kenny: “Whoa! Hey! Hold on!” Solomon: “That’s my home…” Valentino: “Is this true?” The ogre makes no comment. Valentino: “I'm afraid I'm going to have to disqualify you then, Bub, for using another's address fraudulently.” In the ensuing confusion over Bub’s disqualification, the crossbowman rises again, re-stating his wish to run for mayor. Valentino: “I'm officially closing off candidacies. The debates have already started, it's too late.” Bub looks around, confused. The crossbowman returns to the stands. Another citizen enters the hall, asking after the guards for an unstated reason. Bub takes a pause once more, looking around the hall, Bub: “UkKE zu MI ez OLOG agh our citeh bi at KRUG. Mi az OLOG zhall teach all Women agh Men Pinkehz tu KLOMP HOZH. Thank lad.” Valentino escorts Bub to the stands, or attempts to. Bub declares, at Valentino “lat haz no right tu remove BUB.” Valentino re-states his position, firmly, to which Bub interjects that he submitted his candidacy on time, to which Valentino re-states his disqualification for using the Obedia family address. The crossbowman takes aim at Bub once again. Crossbowman: “Get on your knees. You are under arrest.” Bub protests: “Mi share blarg, lat nub disqualify me.” Bub’s lawyer enters the chamber to no avail. The crossbowman has his bead trained right between Bub’s eyes. Crossbowman: “Get on your knees or be executed.” The ISA in the room make haste to disarm the crossbowman, or at least talk him down from attempted assassination. Meanwhile, Valentino continues, red as a beet with exasperation: Valentino: “Edith Hope. What would you do as Mayor to steer this city in the right direction?” Edith: “I would start by expanding the clinic as it is too small to handle the wounded soldiers that every battle inevitably has. I would then work with the City Clerk on a way to lower taxes for everyone in Providence and I'd start construction on more shopping plazas as it seems we do not have enough storefronts for the city. I'd also like to restart theatre plays and maybe even advocate for an Orenian Band to play there.” There is a lull in the fracas and then quiet applause. The Surgeon-General smiles at the mention of her clinic. Aubergine and Valentino both raise eyebrows at the prospect of a renewed theatre. Valentino: “Very good Miss Hope, you may now go ahead Mister Komnenos.” Henrik Komnenos: “My plan is simple Trade must grow, were currently in a war fighting on two fronts. If our trade dies, our city rots from within.” The crossbowman, still in possession of his weapon, cheers for the mention of trade. Henrik: “I plan to work with the state and the clerks to issue packages for our merchants to ensure they can operate without the fear of shutting down. Furthermore, I will do my best to work with the army to ensure our city is safe. So we can have our plays! Our music! And events!” There is a laudatory whistle from the crowd: Henrik: “Without fearing the small bearded men or damn Haense! A safe people is a happy people! I won't issue tax cuts left and right like Miss Hope, we can’t afford such ordeals. Every dime helps the war effort and keeps our people safe!” Valentino: “Thank you Mister Komnenos. Now for the final question, we shall be fielding one from the audience.” A flurry of hands raise, each eager to pose a question. A young ISA recruit is singled out from the audience, and in precocious eloquence asks both candidates: Recruit: “The new city charter lets the city government, including the mayor, to exert a lot more authority on the city. Without the House of Commons being an obstacle, what new policies will you push forward as mayor that you couldn't previously?” Edith Hope: “As I read in the new city charter the Lord Mayor may grant alms to those who need it. I would set up a program to grant that money to those who need it. It would enable them to buy Oren and build Oren more so than they ever could before.” There is a jeer from the crowd, unsurprisingly from the fiscally responsible crossbowman. He raises his weapon once again, though this time at Miss Hope. The ISA immediately jump up to disarm him. Henrik Komnenos: “Back on topic, I will also look into every single law currently active within our capital to see which ones can either be removed or eased up to provide a better state of living for our people.” There is a loud and chaotic scramble in the stands to relieve the crossbowman of his crossbow. Through the din, Valentino dismisses the debate, and attendees begin to flee the assembly hall... Valentino: “Debate’s over! Thank you all for attending!”
