  2. Eleanor, the most fervent and earliest of the Alstion Restorationists, reminiscences of the times lost. Many summers ago when she had sworn herself to this great and glorious cause of returning the Johannian inheritance. Her eyes filled with tears and memories engulfed her mind, as she and her love, Charles, dotted upon their successors from above, the Seven Skies. Had they secured the future of the Johannians and Alstions alike, this worried her deeply, knowing that the wheel of humanity was not kind to any. @seannie
  3. John prepared to input his great advice as Groom of the Privy Chamber.
  4. The eldest child and successor by the nature of law and humanity scans the contents of the declaration. The now grown boy surrounds his mind with sorrow emotions and memories of his father. Hoping that John makes his return one day, anticipating that day from now on. Uncertainty clouded his future as John Auguste was now devoid of the figure that saw to his protection and prosperity.

  6. Antoine peruses the contents of the circulating paper, tapping his foot on the ground, as he oversaw the construction of the town. "A madman, and an illiterate at that." He commented to his liege, the Count of Stassion. @Optimus420
  7. THESIS ON THE MARKET UNTO THE ENLIGHTENED AND THOSE NOT SO; The market as an entity of the economy is one of the most outstanding innovation of the Descendants, as from the moment of their creation they have played as the driving instrument behind the purse of the low peasant and chancy state treasuries, due to its connection between consumption and production. It is a part of the financial sphere, in which resources and goods are being exchanged and distributed between economical subjects, in most cases the seller and buyer. The functioning of the market is articulated from the influence of the main market powers, those being the demand, supply, competition. As a result of this impact and interaction the mechanism of price creation is defined, together with the distribution of resources and goods and the actions of the economical entrants, all of these establishing a certain economical order. The market may be arranged by classes, depending on whether the state interferes or does not, those being the free market and the state-guided market. Furthermore the object of exchange, those being the market of products, the market of resources and the market of funds. The first of those mainly dealing in exchange of goods and services, intended for immediate consumption. The second of those is mainly dealing in exchange of production factors, whilst the third of those mainly dealing in currencies, coins or gold. Lastly exists another classification based upon the location and size, as one market may be local, national or international. The heart of the market system is its structure, or construction. Formed by the interaction between the buyer and seller and their competitive behaviour in the market. The competition is a rivalry between the economic agents, buyers and sellers pursuing the same goals. It is the most distinctive feature of the market economy and its presence contributes to the improvement of the quality of goods and services and to reduce their prices. “And you shall discover the strength of heart as you work the forge and the plow.” (Virtue 4:7) SCRIBED AND PUBLISHED; In the Arancione Palace, 12th of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1934 HIS LORDSHIP, John Auguste d’Arkent
  8. The youngling of Arkent hears of the news, pondering on the death of one of his only friends. “Well, we never went to the pyramid.” He said, somewhat saddened at the fact.

  11. John Auguste peruses the contents of the pronouncement on his own after his tutors had proved themselves in teaching him read. He deliberated on the death of his grand father, for they held no personal connections, but the boy felt something in him sorrow for the late Viscount.

  14. THE WHITE DRAGON IS NO MORE On this sorrow day, the 9th of Sun’s Smile, 1932 She had felt unneeded, oftentimes comparing herself to an aged relic as result of the retirement that occurred in tandem with the passing of her husband. She drew breath from the mandate of governance that was bestowed upon her Charles and by her through an extension of him. The moment that linkage was broken, she considered herself and her counsel an undesired asset. What was left for her to do was relish these last summers that were granted by the Heavens above. The madame had found an absorbing hobby, and that was the heavy consumption of Pruvian Port, that she exercised every day thoroughly from dawn to dusk. In concurrent she raised the frequency of her trips to Aeldin, oftentimes disappearing for months without any alarm. That was the life of the once legendary Mother of Aaun, humbled and lowered to an alcoholic, whose delight has only been the lavish retreats to her villas many seas away, away from the state she so greatly nurtured. It was an ordinary evening, the Queen-Mother had secluded herself to her quarters and had her newly-hired servant bring forward the usual tray of Pruvian Port, she extended her arm and her wrinkled hand now held the metal base of the chalice. Her lips were now pressed on the rim as the liquid found its way through her mouth into her body, it was moments later that Eleanor felt something was abnormal as her hands began shaking and she felt losing control of her muscles. She realised that a tiny piece of paper was placed below the tray that held her beverage, and on it read “Aeldin sends its regards.” without much consideration, she had realised that many moons ago she had outbid an Aeldinic merchant, who now sought revenge. The Pruvian scion then collapsed onto the cold ground, eyes closing dramatically as servantry and dwellers of the Royal seat surrounded the elderly woman in her last moments. “OUR MOTHER HAS PASSED, OUR MOTHER HAS PASSED, OUR MOTHER HAS PASSED.” The bells of Whitespire rang and the town criers screamed from their lungs of the news. EXORDIUM BY THE QUEEN-MOTHER ON HER OWN PASSING “ I shall one day be deprived of my mortality and ascend to Him, then I shall preside over my successors and bestow upon them my counsel for eternity; then I shall forgive all my foes and enemies for I hold no grudges; then I shall witness the essence of GOD, that I have so much abided by throughout my ordained summers; ” As prepared by my own to be pronounced upon my own passing; SIGNED, HER ROYAL MAJESTY, THE 1ST QUEEN OF AAUN, ELEANOR OF PROVINS
  15. An Arkent spawn rejoices as he jumps in the air from excitement.
