  1. Coronation of 82 S.A. 19th of the Amber Cold, 81 S.A. With the conclusion of the Kingsmoot of 80 S.A., it was decided by majority that Odin Freysson Ruric would serve as the new King for the Kingdom of Norland. With a new King, it has come time for a coronation ceremony to formally crown King Odin Freysson before the eyes of the Norlandic populace, its allies, and to the rest of Nyrheim. The ceremony shall take place at the palace in Alisgrad. As it is with tradition, the King of Norland shall be ceremoniously presented with symbolic artifacts to cement their role as the King. Afterwards, vassals will be given the opportunity to reaffirm their loyalty to the crown in a public manner. At the conclusion, the attendees of the coronation shall be permitted to petition King Odin regarding any matters they wish to be tended to. This petition stage also extends as an opportunity for allies to speak to the King, but it should be noted that some matters may be postponed until after the formal ceremony is completed to be spoken of. After the ceremony has been concluded, it will be encouraged that attendees visit the tavern to partake in some lighthearted drinking and fun to celebrate the events.

  2. Results of the 80 S.A. Kingsmoot 18th of the Amber Cold, 81 S.A. During Malin’s Welcome of 80 S.A., the Kingdom of Norland officially began the Kingsmoot and gathered at a humble location on the outskirts of Alisgrad where it was held bustling with individuals as they waited eagerly for the new King or Queen. As was tradition, each of the three Rurikid clans were voting for a new successor to bring the Kingdom into a new prosperous era. Upon formally introducing the crowd to the events to come, Einar Edvardsson had nominated himself as a candidate. When asked who else would nominate themselves or others, the following were nominated: Casimira Edvardsson, Halstein Eiriksson, Odin Freysson, and later Torstein Eiriksson. Most candidates provided lengthy speeches and received questions with lengthy answers. After a few Father’s hours, it finally came time to vote. By the decision of a majority vote among the three Rurikid Clans, it was Clan Edvardsson and Clan Freysson that came together to form a majority to install Odin Freysson as the rightful successor to the Kingdom of Norland. The details of the coronation to come shall be announced in a future missive.

  3. Reconsideration of Verdict 10th of the Deep Cold, 80 S.A. Two years ago, a verdict was made regarding the treason of Astrid Eiriksson-Black. Astrid Eiriksson-Black was perceived to be acting contrary to our Kingdom’s values and of our alliance despite being a high-ranking official of the Royal Norlandic Ashguard. With newly-acquired information, the verdict regarding the situation has been reconsidered. Astrid Eiriksson-Black will not be punished with execution for any charges regarding that situation and will be allowed back into the Kingdom’s territories without fear of punishment. She will issue a satisfactory public apology regarding the miswording and errors of her previous letter. She will no longer be permitted to serve in the Royal Norlandic Ashguard, however she is expected to serve the Kingdom in a non-militaristic manner to be decided by King Odin Freysson, beholden to him. To reaffirm, Astrid Eiriksson-Black will be permitted to continue using their Eiriksson surname, as it was never taken from them to begin with. Signed, His Excellency, Einar Edvardsson Ruric, by the Blood of the Herald, Prince of Norland, Chamberlain of Norland, Chieftain of the Edvardssons, Warden of the Royal Norlandic Ashguard Odin Freysson Ruric, King of Norland.
  4. Norland-Redclyf Non-Aggression Pact 11th of the First Seed, 79 S.A. ARTICLE I. NON-AGGRESSION The Kingdom of Norland and its vassals, and the Duchy of Redclyf-Rozania will commit to a pact of non-aggression whereby any prior wrongdoing of Clan Mösu towards the Kingdom of Norland will be forgotten in consideration of a united front to face the greater geopolitical landscape. Any diplomacy regarding future wrongdoings are to be presided over by a delegation from the Horde to ensure the presence of a neutral party. ARTICLE II. PAYMENT The Piast of Vistulia, Vojvodz of Daeland-Vistulia, will, on behalf of the Duchy of Redclyf-Rozania, pay the Kingdom of Norland a sum of 2000 mina within 30 Father’s / Iskras days as recompense for Clan Mösu’s past wrongdoings. Failure to pay the owed amount by the given date will give the Kingdom of Norland the right to have the Piast executed for oath-breaking and will additionally declare the pact void, giving the Kingdom of Norland the right to trial Clan Mösu on any prior and present wrongdoings. ARTICLE III. DURATION The pact - assuming that all conditions are followed - shall last a duration of ten years. At the conclusion of the decade, the possibility of a future pact may be discussed to reflect the political situation at the given time. Signed, His Excellency, Einar Edvardsson Ruric, by the Blood of the Herald, Prince of Norland, Chancellor of Norland, Chieftain of the Edvardssons, Warden of the Royal Norlandic Ashguard Lord Uhtred Mösu, Redclyf-Rozania Aesir of peace, Leader of the wild ones, Member of the Mösu’s clan
  5. [!] A letter of summons would be distributed on notice boards throughout the Kingdom of Norland so that it may be seen by all who enter its borders. It would also be delivered to the officials of the Horde. An Overseer’s Treason 78 S.A. TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, The Kingdom of Norland is a kingdom that was founded on four important values. Honour, loyalty, order, and faith. As such, it is expected that our citizens not only respect but adhere to these values. Our reputation and our strength is represented by these values. Therefore, it is taken very seriously when there are those who wish to call themselves Norlanders but do not adhere to our values. Our Kingdom’s military, the Royal Norlandic Ashguard, demands that our soldiers and our officers are held to a greater degree of responsibility and adherence to our values. Being an enlisted member and officer of our Ashguard means that you are expected by oath and duty to assist with honouring our nation’s values and our alliances. You are there to be at the forefront of Norland’s military force as we defend ourselves and our allies, as well as to conduct offensive campaigns as we maintain balance and our kingdom’s interests. Desertion of your military duties is not only letting down those around you, but it is also treason against the entirety of the Kingdom of Norland and its vassals. With this document, Astrid Eiriksson-Black is henceforth dishonourably discharged from the Royal Norlandic Ashguard from their position of Overseer for oath-breaking, mutiny, and treason in a time of war. For their crimes, they are charged with oath-breaking, treason, and possible conspiracy, per their publicly admitted remarks. Upon capture, they are to be executed in a way deemed necessary by presiding Norlandic officials. We implore our allies to assist in the capture of Astrid Eiriksson-Black if possible to ensure that justice and order can be thoroughly maintained. Signed, His Excellency, Einar Edvardsson Ruric, by the Blood of the Herald, Prince of Norland, Chancellor of Norland, Chieftain of the Edvardssons, Warden of the Royal Norlandic Ashguard His Excellency, Ragnar Sigvardson I, Lord of Bjornfjall, Marshal of the Royal Norlandic Ashguard, Chieftain of the Sigvardssons
  6. [!] A letter would be distributed on notice boards throughout the Kingdom of Norland so that it may be seen by all who enter its borders. Death and Ash 77 S.A. CITIZENS OF THE REALM, On the 18th of the First Seed, the body of Olivia Freysson Ruric was discovered in the Hearth Temple. This death, unfortunately, marks the death of a Rurikid chieftess, and as such we hope that Clan Freysson are able to peacefully decide on a new Chieftain to represent their clan. Unfortunately, it is the circumstance of their death that is the worst of all. It is believed that she came, with an accomplice, to cause destruction to property of the Red Faith. Sacred murals were desecrated, the front bench vandalised, chandeliers cut from their chains, and the Hearth in the centre of had been extinguished. While there is no certainty, it seems very likely that Olivia’s death was suicide. Whether it is was an assisted suicide is unknown. However, their accomplice had marked the Hearth Temple with what was seemingly a Canonist Cross using Olivia’s blood, which hints at a Canonist link between the two. It is due to these considerations that, using the total power granted on matters of administration and diplomacy during the regency, Olivia Freysson Ruric is henceforth posthumously considered ashed - to bear the surname of Ash when referenced. Throughout and towards the end of her life especially, she has demonstrated an opposition to the values and tradition of the Rurikid that make her undeserving to be considered Rurikid, and is now considered Ash because she no longer has the inner flame that the Rurikid possess. As an Ash, this means that Olivia may no longer be referred to as a Freysson nor a Ruric. If she had any children before death, they too are considered ashed unless they prove themselves worthy.

  7. [!] A letter of summons would be distributed on notice boards throughout the Kingdom of Norland so that it may be seen by all who enter its borders. A letter would also be separately slipped under the door of Olivia's room in the Alisgrad palace. Summons of Olivia Freysson TO OLIVIA FREYSSON AND THOSE WHO IT MAY OTHERWISE CONCERN, Following diplomatic conversation after witnessing the claim of conversion in a foreign letter, Olivia Freysson Ruric, Chieftess of Clan Freysson, is under suspicion for the unholy crime of apostasy as listed in the Red Law. With the release of this letter of summons, Olivia is to appear at the Hearth Temple in Alisgrad within the next few days where a Keeper will render appropriate judgment. Additional punishment may be inflicted by the Throne if deemed necessary at the conclusion of a verdict. If Olivia does not attend by the given date, or refuses to prior, it will be considered an admission of guilt that she has wilfully abandoned the covenant sealed by Thoromir ‘the Herald’, and will result in permanent banishment and ashing, whereby she will no longer be permitted to identify herself as Freysson or a Rurikid among other restrictions.

  10. REGARDING THE RED RAIN Issued this 9th of the Snow's Maiden, year 73 of the Second Age To the Citizens of Norland, It is with a great urgency that the King's Council of Norland releases this missive. As many citizens of Norland and other denizens of Nyrheim are aware, a thick "Blood Rain" has began pouring across the vast continent that we call home. Due to the unusual coloring of the rainfall, it was immediately of great concern to the Crown of Norland to take shelter and study the effects such rain had on those it afflicted. As we have concluded, and other sources across Nyrheim have confirmed, being in bare contact with such liquid for too long causes mental abnormalities including but not limited to; intensified feelings of anger, intensified depression, increased likelihood of impulsive and violent actions against others or their own person, an outright loss of mental control, verbal abusiveness, physical abusiveness, temporary loss of memory, et cetera. While not all effects are mutually inclusive, there is a high likelihood of the aforementioned effects happening at once. There is no confirmed sources stating that the red rain is physically altering nor causes bodily abnormalities, and it is believed that all effects of the liquid remain purely mentally-based. With this in mind, we seek to provide the public with the following instructions: - Remain indoors if possible - Wear complete body-covering clothing including gloves and water-proof shoes and boots if available - Wear multiple layers of clothing to prevent liquid seeping through the cloth - Wear helmets and/or complete head and face coverings - Utilize civilian-made umbrellas - Do not attempt to interact with anyone visibly afflicted by the Red Rain - Do not attempt to reason with visibly afflicted persons - Do not interfere with Ashguard operations to restrain afflicted persons - Do not allow Dogs, Cats, or other pets outdoors - Do not allow Livestock outside to graze - Stock up on food - Do not attempt to drink the red rain or foods that have interacted with the red rain - If you are attacked by an afflicted person, defend yourself with non-lethal objects - If you are attacked by an afflicted animal or pet, restrain or kill the animal - If you are physically injured by afflicted, contact a member of the Ashguard immediately - If you have come into prolonged contact with the red rain, contact a member of the Ashguard immediately With the aforementioned instructions made clear to the public, we also wish to make clear that the effects of the red rain are not permanent and will wear off following a prolonged period of being withdrawn from any sources of the red rain. We also wish to make clear that intentional exposure, forceful exposure of others, or other purposeful interactions with the red rain not sanctioned by the King's Council is hereby illegal. The punishment for forcing another to unwillingly interact with the red rain shall be immediate execution by a member of the Ashguard. The punishment for intentional exposure of yourself to the red rain will be prolonged jail time and the loss of a left hand. The Ashguard is hereby instructed to not kill afflicted persons. Ashguard instructions for how to handle inflicted persons shall be written and distributed to members of the Ashguard privately. The Government shall also issue the following information to the public: There shall be Crown-issued umbrellas made of a thicker fabric than civilian-made umbrellas that shall be distributed at the steps of the palace. Should you be unable to make your way to the Palace, then you may request one be brought to you by way of asking a nearby guardsman. Remain safe, follow the instructions, and stay alert. All-Father guide you all, Iron from Ice Signed, His Majesty, Ragnvald Eiriksson Ruric, King of Norland, High Chieftain of the Rurikkid, Duke of Varhelm and Alisgrad, Lord of Eiriksgrad, Protector of the Highlanders, Et Cetera.
  11. Royal Recognition of Clan Sigvardson Issued this 12th of the Amber Cold To the People of Norland and members of the Sigvardson Family, As long as Varhelm and Alisgrad have stood, so too has the Sigvardson family. In the days of Varhelm, the Sigvardsons enlisted as members of the Ashguard and fought against the threat of the Tribals, Svarlings, and Orenians. They have answered the call to arms for the Kingdom of Norland many a time, and their feats shall no longer go unrewarded. Ragnar Sigvardson, a distinguished member of the Family, has served as a Warden of Norland since the middle of former Marshal Ragnvald's tenure, and has been apart of the Ashguard since the days of Marshal Lee Sun. Ludvig Sigvardson, another distinguished member of the Family, has repeatedly fought alongside the forces of Norland in holding back the tide of those who would see Norland under their heel, and has stood as a defender of his homeland among many of his brothers-in-arms. The Sigvardsons uphold justice within their keep of Bjornfjall, and stand as a Clan of Honor, Justice, and Loyalty. It is therefore the pleasure of the Crown of Norland to declare that the Sigvardson family shall join the many ancient bloodlines of Norland among the book of Clans, and shall be admitted as a Royally recognized Clan of Norland. They shall be afforded the rights given to the clans documented in Norlandic Law, and shall be trusted to continue their firm devotion to the Kingdom of Norland. Signed, His Highness, Ragnvald Eiriksson Ruric, King of Norland, High Chieftain of the Rurikkid, Duke of Varhelm and Alisgrad, Lord of Eiriksgrad, Protector of the Highlands, Et Cetera.
  12. Royal Recognition of Clan Anarórë Issued this 12th of the Amber Cold To the People of Norland and members of the Anarórë Family, For many years, members of the Anarórë family have shown their loyalty to the Kingdom of Norland via their contributions to the Crown. From Varhelm to Alisgrad, the Anarórës have given blood, sweat, and tears for the betterment of the lands which they now call home. From the service of Sir Boots Anarórë as both a Warden of the Ashguard and Laird of Grenzstadt to the contributions of Scarlet Anarórë as a member of Rathonian society, the Anarórë clan has proven their loyalty to Norland time and time again. Their Family has provided capable warriors which have fought in the Tribal, Orenian, and Svarling Wars, and they have contributed to Norlandic growth by lording over the Crown's lands in the Southern frontier of the Nation. It is therefore the pleasure of the Crown of Norland to declare that the Anarórë Family shall join the many ancient bloodlines of Norland among the Book of Clans, and shall be admitted as a Royally recognized Clan of Norland. They shall be afforded the rights given to the clans documented in the laws of Norland, and shall be trusted to continue their hard work within the realm. His Highness, Ragnvald Eiriksson Ruric, King of Norland, High Chieftain of the Rurikkid, Duke of Varhelm and Alisgrad, Lord of Eiriksgrad, Protector of the Highlands, Et Cetera.

With these Royal visits, it is the hope of the Crown of Norland to establish positive relations with the inhabitants of each vassal settlement, and to work with their respective Lords and Governments.

Signed, His Majesty, Ragnvald Eiriksson Ruric, King of Norland, High Chieftain of the Rurikkid, Duke of Varhelm and Alisgrad
  14. To Redefine the Clans Issued this 12th of the Grand Harvest To the People of Norland, With the intent of clarifying the purposes, functions, and abilities of a Clan, we in the King’s Council seek to issue this missive, redefining the Clans of Norland as well as asserting many of the old definitions. A Clan is a Royally recognized family or political unit that has contributed greatly to the Kingdom of Norland. A Clan must have at least Five (5) active members who each actively contribute to the wellbeing of Norland. This can be achieved via the following though are not required: - Consistent involvement in the Ashguard. - Consistent participation in the Capital or one of its Vassal-States and any events it may partake in. - Consistent political involvement (attending Clansmoots, advocating for Events, etc) A Clan must reside within Norland and/or one of the subsidiary Vassal-States. A non-recognized Family/political entity may formally request to be considered for recognized Clanhood. Once Royally recognized, a Clan will be written into the Book of Clans. A Clan shall not be struck from the Book of Clans unless the following occurs: - An act of Treason is committed by the majority of the Clan’s members. - The Clan leaves Norland for an extended period of time/permanently. - The Clan is rendered extinct. Clans have the right to establish a singular leader titled the Chieftain/Chieftess. Clans are given the privilege to be considered for land grants outside of the Capital. Clans have the right to call a Clansmoot at any time, where they may petition the King and his Council. Should members of a Clan be dissatisfied with their current Chieftain, they may call an internal Chiefsmoot to select a new Chieftain by majority vote of the Clan. Clan Members do not need to be born into a Clan in order to join one. Clans may not field their own Bannermen unless a landed member of Norland’s Baronage. Clan/Vassal levies are seconded to the Ashguard, and are expected to consult the Marshal, Overseers, or local Wardens before committing to military operations. Succession of a Clan’s Chieftainship may be decided by the Clan itself, either by direct hereditary succession or Chiefsmoot. Smaller Clans may band together in order to petition the King’s Council. Clans are afforded the right to feud with one another, so long as said feuds remain bloodless. - The Crown of Norland shall have the right to intervene in Clan feuds should they be designated as out of control. - Clans may not feud any of the three major Rurikkid Clans (Edvardsson, Eiriksson, Freysson) but may feud their cadet branches (Rosik, etc). - The three major Rurikkid Clans may not feud each other. - Clan feuds must be announced publicly - Multiple Clans cannot band together to declare a feud on a singular Clan Clans are afforded the right to organize a Clan Brawl, which shall be a non-lethal fight between opposing Clans should they wish to solve their feud through violence. - Clan Members may not cripple, wound, or otherwise severely injure opposing Clan Members. - Clan Members may not kill opposing Clan Members under penalty of a Murder charge. - Only Clan Members may partake in a Clan Brawl, therefore Vassal Levies may not partake in the fighting nor any non-clan members. - Only blunt weaponry is permitted such as Staffs, Dull Swords, etc, and both Clans must be equipped with full body armor designating their Clan colors. - The opposing Clans may negotiate on a size limit to the fight (5v5, 10v10, etc). - Clan Brawls are not required to have a size limit unless requested by either Clan. - A member of the Kings Council must be present to bear witness to the Clan Brawl, preferably the Marshal of Norland or the King of Norland. - Clans may not bring non-aligned Clans into a Brawl. Clans shall have the right to create and bear their own insignia. Clans are not entitled to being promoted to Norland’s Baronage, but are the only entities that may be considered for such. Signed, His Majesty, Ragnvald Eiriksson Ruric, King of Norland, High Chieftain of the Rurikkid, Duke of Varhelm and Alisgrad, Lord of Eiriksgrad
  15. Results of the Kingsmoot Issued this 5th of the Deep Cold, year 70 of the Second Age To the People of Norland, Upon the request for a Kingsmoot, representatives from each of the three Rurikkid Clans met alongside with the lords of Norland’s vassals to discuss and elect a new Monarch to sit upon the throne of Norland. The place of gathering, deep within the mountains of Norland, was full of activity on this day. Citizens rushed to make the settlement easier to defend whilst the Moot took place, and kept its location an absolute secret to the outside world and even their own people. Then, the Rurikkid loyal to Norland met and began their nominations. The following Rurics were nominated or nominated themselves: Casimira Edvardsson Ruric Ragnvald Eiriksson Ruric Torstein Eiriksson Ruric With no other nominations, the process of the Kingsmoot began. Each nominee plead their case to the representatives present, and the representatives had the opportunity to ask all three candidates questions regarding their plans for their reign. After questions were answered and speeches concluded, the Vote began. To protect the privacy of the electors, the vote was kept anonymous and was later counted up once the vote was collected. The King’s Council, upon the tallying of the vote, hereby declares that Ragnvald Eiriksson Ruric has been elected as Norland’s new legitimate ruler by right of Kingsmoot. The Coronation of the new Monarch shall be announced at a later date in order to make the necessary preparations in the meantime. Signed, The King’s Council
