In return, and as a sign of Our august graciousness, We do privilege his ability to levy law and taxes upon his subjects if any be borne.

Under the leadership of Lady Registrar Sophie of Provins, the office seeks to act as an archivist of cultures of the Kingdom in large-scale public documents that may be accessed by anyone of the general public, while also studying historic documents to create easily accessible knowledge to the subjects of the Crown regarding the nation’s past.

Current objectives include drafts of a short timeline of Modern History of Royal and Imperial Oren as well as petitioning the Kingdom’s peers for the creation of their own documentation detailing their individual house’s history and culture.

The Master of Entry acts as the head of any Orenian Entry Officers who invite new citizens in and aid them in their integration into the city. Currently the office is headed by Mister Ebereth Iomharach [6byte]. The office’s objectives are to invite new citizens into the city and the creation of a simple guide for the aforementioned new citizens to be better integrated into the city.

  10. THE FIRST SITTING OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY Constituents situated in the hall of Temesch, a diverse array of men and women, both old and juvenile, from areas across the Kingdom. Ravens and Savoyards alike joined the hall in congregation, their representation separate, but their ideals as countrymen: one. From a podium central to the hall, the Lord Chancellor de Falstaff stood, opening the first sitting with an address to the burgess and burgesses. @Chennster Men and women of Oren, I welcome you to our first congregation of His Majesty's Grand Assembly. I beseech ye, today, to ponder on the many developments of recent we have become privy to.” Conrad announced, his voice echoing through the hall. The AsAhford’s eye glistened with redeem, as he faced the constituents that had chosen to serve their country. In comparison to the wars that preceded our ancestors, we live, now, in simpler times. We are graced with the authority of peace, and is our mantle as the leaders - the stewards of this great Kingdom, to put it to use. As of recently, we have mandated peace as our authority. Our military grows, our businesses flourish, and our nobles lavish in privilege and sacred duty. Our government has completed itself, and today, this final instrument of government marks our longstanding vows to prosperity and autonomy. Our predecessors had one item in common: The Nenzing rebels, the Aster visionaries, and our very own King Frederick? It was the mandate of the governed, the reconciliation of the very sacred contract that tethers us, men, together. Our sole presence here marks this fact. So, let this be a reminder that we are men of free will. I implore this assembly, that we may enact legislation that enacts the will of our governed. Be it law of order, appropriations for finances, or even the stewardship of the development of our culture - we Orenians will soar to heights never known, as the late Archchancellor described it - let us be the jewel of the civilized world. He paused, concluding. May God bless us. Let us commence, now, the first sitting of His Majesty's General Assembly, and its ground rules. A hand thudded against the desk, ending his opening remarks. Election for the Leader of the General Assembly Lord Dietrich Barclay 8 Ayes Lord Vincent Keen 12 Ayes **Bills proposed were tabled for the next sitting, due to the first sitting being responsible for establishment of ground procedure.

This title is afforded by House Jazloviecki’s indomitable fortitude, sufficient for the defence of Our borders and, too, Our subjects. Furthermore, theirs is an immigration from the lands of Savoy, an exchange of Crowns in good faith. In return, and as a sign of Our august graciousness, We do privilege their ability to levy law and taxes upon all their crown-approved vassals should any be borne. If ever Our Royal Crown sees fit to suspend or demote these rights or, unitarily, their noble letters, their right to contest the suspension or demotion shall be upheld within the Adriatic Court, where a jury of Noble Peers shall evaluate the act.

ADDENDUM Excerpt Upon the Rights of Man, Humanity, created by God in the image of His Prophets, is bestowed upon through His Divine Power the guaranteed, inalienable rights of Man, held above all law and rule. Through the power of the Crown, they are enforced and protected immaculate and indefinite, only transgressed by committing a mortal sin. The Rights of Man include; ● THE RIGHT TO LIFE, so no man will ever be taken to the Skies so soon. ● THE RIGHT TO LIBERTY, so no man will ever be bonded by the shackles of slavery. ● THE RIGHT TO TRIAL, so no man accused of a crime shall be subject to punishment or penalty without first having been judged so by a jury of his peers; having been allowed fair and proper representation; and to always be presumed innocent until proven guilty. These rights are the backbone of human liberty and law, preventing the slip of chaos as seen in time immemorial, acting as a shield before the dark arrows of tyranny and selfish ambition. All sons of the First Prophet, no matter of blood, language, or culture, carry upon them these golden laurels of freedom, through right of birth and sapienic kinship. - Emperor Joseph I, 1718 ADDENDUM General Principles of Law The Binding Contract Principle; “A binding contract exists by an expressed offer that is taken up upon by an expressed acceptance of said offer”. The Eminent Domain Principle; “All soil, and the structures and elements upon it, are under Crown ownership, unless specified otherwise by referenceable documents from state government”. The Rightful Ownership Principle; “A human with uncontested physical ownership of a good, legal tender or produce, with an absent pretext of criminality, is assumed to be the rightful legal owner.” The Penalty Principle; “The gravity of a crime can exceed the amount of justice the conventional punishments could bring, and therefore might require the execution of the criminal”. The Exclusion (Leumont) Principle; “Everything established within the physical, administrative and diplomatic dimension that is not in accordance with the rule of law; is considered to have never existed.” TITLE II - THE TEN TABLES (LEX CRIMINALIS) CH 201 - On Defining the Tables 201.01 - The activity of the Ten Tables is to elucidate our wishes for the dispensation of justice within our realm. At our charge, its precepts are enacted, and in our absence, they shall service the state in contending against iniquity.

Approximately, the ninth table concerns inchoate offenses, and the tenth legal defenses for mitigation of punishment. 201.03 - Of the offenses enumerated herein, each is classified according to its degree, of which there exist three, and upon which culpability and just punishment shall be evaluated.
