Jan Haas As decreed by His Serenity, Prince Matthias of the Golden City of Ves on behalf of the populace of the Golden City, the Fourth Meeting of the Fourth Assembly has been called to order. Within this document are those assemblymen which constitute the Fourth Assembly along with the proposals debated. Alongside with the debated proposals are the results of said proposals. Here be those who represent the populace of the Golden City of Ves between the years 1718 to 1722. Prince Matthias Rutledge Patrician Mortimer Myre Patrician Nedric Arkazniv Patrician Chadwick Morris Patrician Paul Sigismund di Montelliano Varoche Patrician Ide Haraccus Patrician Helton Helvets Cassian Colborn Jan Haas Donnie le Croix Cedric Black Zachary Cataffus Tylos Urrigon Drumm Urist Drumm Amalia Varnes Guy Haas Lithren Albert Samrus Here be those new assemblymen chosen to serve out the remainder of this term. Dylan Roger Othodoric Helvets The Assembly began with when a jester by the name of Jackoff Carrion barged into the court performing a comedy. The jester Jackoff twirled into the hall, pointing a finger at the Prince Rutledge and demanding for their abdication. In a similar manner he wagged his finger and went on about how the Republic has fallen to ruin. This jester’s performance was almost lifelike as it inspired the jeers of the assembly though I, Jan Haas would not be fooled by this audacious play. I. RATIFICATION OF THE TREATY OF CURON, 1720 Proposed by Prince Matthias seeking to ratify the peace treaty between the Republic of Ves and the Kingdom of Curon. The details of the treaty are outlined below. ARTICLE I - Both parties shall enforce a strict non-aggression pact, under all circumstances. ARTICLE II - If both parties consent, this treaty may temporarily ascend into a full defensive alliance. ARTICLE III - A policy of free trade and travel shall be enacted between the two nations. No customs shall be applied to any exchange between the two nations. The citizens of both nations shall be permitted to freely and safely travel within the borders of both nations. ARTICLE IV - Both parties shall deliver justice to any party charged with or convicted of any crime by either state. The surrender shall only take place upon evidence of criminality according to the laws of the territory the criminal is found. This extradition may only take place if the facts of the crime would justify his commitment for trial if the crime or offense had been committed in the state where they are apprehended. This article is null if it would violate another treaty, pact, or alliance. ARTICLE V - If either party is found to be in violation of this pact, all articles shall remain in effect, so long as sincere diplomatic efforts are taken to peacefully resolve the dispute, according to the aforementioned articles. ARTICLE VI - Both parties agree to meet and possibly expand this treaty in four years time. If no agreement is reached, the current terms of the treaty shall remain in effect. This proposal passed with a count of seven ayes, zero nays and twelve abstentions. Prince Rutledge became indisposed and thus Assemblyman Cassian Colborn, first among equals, was called by the assembly to host it for the rest of the session. Mister Otho Helvets who was recently elevated to Patricianship has recently become a priest. With this, his eldest son Helton Hadrian Helvets took up the mantled of Patricianship. Mr Otho believed he retained an assembly seat and voted in the previous motion. When informed of such, I Jan Haas offered to sell him a lottery ticket for one of the sacked assemblymen. When he heard this Mr. Otho made a great big stink in the hall. In the end it was High Pontiff Daniel VI that proved to be the most level-headed and bought Otho an assembly ticket. II. THE CASSIAN CASTLE DOCTRINE Proposed by Assemblyman Cassian Colborn, first among equals, this proposal seeks to allow the use of deadly force within private property. This official wording of the proposal is written below. The Freemen and Patricians of the Golden Freecity of Ves will hereby be granted the right to use force (up to and including deadly force) on a trespasser, trespassing on their private property, who, after one warning, refuses to leave. This proposal was tabled by Cassian Colborn, first among equals. III. DECLARATION OF MORTIMER MYRE AS REGENT OF THE GOLDEN CITY OF VES Proposed by Prince Matthias Rutledge, Mortimer Myre is to be raised to the status of regent in the case of the Prince’s indisposition. This proposal failed with a count of no ayes, four nays and fifteen abstentions. Assemblyman Urist Drumm swore himself and the family of Drumm to the Golden City of Ves and he swore that he would bring to the city the head of the jester Jackoff. Afterwards he proposed the following motion for the deposition of the Prince of Ves. He may have been inspired by the jester Jackoff’s play. IV. DEPOSITION OF MATTHIAS RUTLEDGE AS PRINCE OF VES Proposed by Assemblyman Urist Drumm seeking to express his displeasure against the Prince. This proposal was meant to be a condemnation of the Prince’s regime and to express their distaste. As the assembly did not hold a two-thirds majority of the assembly is not legally allowed to force the Prince out of their office. This proposal passed with a count of five ayes, one nay and thirteen abstentions. V. PONTIFICAL SEAT WITHIN THE SERENE ASSEMBLY Proposed by Patrician Helton Helvets, the proposal seeks to add to the assembly a permanent seat for the High Pontiff. This proposal was quickly shot down as requiring a two-thirds majority to amend the charter and amend the fabric of the assembly. This proposal failed due to not achieving a majority. VI. REMOVAL OF THE SCHOOL IN FAVOR OF ANOTHER CONSTRUCTION Proposed by Patrician Mortimer Myre, the proposal seeks to demolish the school located within the square.

John Mccain Eidr ibn-Ahsanullah Haraqqa Astrid Avern NOTE: Striked out names identify those who have lost their seats as of the Eight Assembly of the Golden City of Ves. Our fair assembly begun with a poem given by a halfling dubbed Flynnfer Applehand. The Dance of the Blind Our setting, two camps separated by a jade battlefield… Civil war danced here, gore: this plain’s only yield! Arid winds blew across the hills, chilling to the bone… As morrow came, men’s hearts turned to stone. Ser Mund, came staggering forth, a most honorable knight. Yet sun’s light did not bother, because sword had taken his sight... That skirmish, had also made corpses out of fellows to boot. His mind centered: revenge! A highborn turned brute… Squires armed him, clad his exterior in iron, tabard, and steel… By simple touch he spread scorching rage, now none could feel. Wild shouts! Frothing mouths! And cries of war could be heard... Plans tactics, and formations: all forgotten, replaced. From Footman to general, they all hungered to waste! The cavalry, our knight amongst them, lowered their lances. Upon its gleaming tip, they attempted to check the enemies’ advances! With nails, teeth, lance, and greatsword, without logic nor reason, he slew! Friends and allies, enemies and foes! Another kill with every hew! Invincibility in the darkness only he felt, singing “Leave none alive!” He made his way through the ranks, anger once locked away now did thrive! Now, the violence had stopped, all laid slain, except for the blind. The storm had passed, scavengers sallied forth, yet they found a knight, left behind… There Ser Mund still fighting in the dark, singing a song that was hollow. A knight, blinded by more than a sword, left to wallow. I. VESSIAN AFFIRMATION OF LOYALTY TO EMPEROR JOSEPH Proposed by the Prince Alfred Myre, this proposal seeks to affirm and ratify the treaties and oaths made by His Serenity, Prince Alfred of Ves on behalf of the Golden City of Ves.

  6. Jan Haas, famed notary pens a letter to Robert, Duke of Cascadia. Hello Robert, I hope you are having a good day. I guess not too well being forced to write at swordpoint. You have sullied my mood trying to read this dribble. I will leave to you a quote from our previous Emperor’s last command. So I shall release all my lawful vassals, signers of the reign of Antonius from there fealty to the Empire. I shall be the last Emperor of Man, with me the title shall destroyed alongside the Empire. How can one break an oath if one is released from it? Please consider using proper legal terminology in your proclamations lest you look like a dotard. I can offer my services as a notary so that you should not make this same mistake in the future, though from what I gather this letter shall be vetted by the Office of the Imperial Secret Service and they will not let you see it. If you see it then I hope that you doing well in the confines of your City of Hel. I do hope they have you under house arrest and not in a cell. t. Jan Haas, Esq.

  9. CHARTER FOR THE GOLDEN CITY OF VES c. 3rd of the Snow’s Maiden, 1706 amd. 6th of the Grand Harvest, 1714 Lo and behold for Ves is glorious! The City of Ves was settled in the year of our Lord 1705 predominantly by former inhabitants of the City of Belvitz. The Duke of Adria, Paul II marched a host of his own people to the so called Mont Saint Catherine and announced “This is where our people shall live a thousand lives.” Embraced in the loving grip of the mountain which graced the city with its protection and riches, Ves grew prosperous. What started off as a chaotic mess of huts and hovels was quickly put to order by Count Rupert of Susa who gave order and structure to the city. He had a singular demand which was to anoint his mother, the Countess Vesna as the namesake of the city. With ore from its mines and it’s central location within the Empire, it quickly became a major trading hub of not only the Empire but the world. Peace was good, the city grew rich and fat though this was not to last. A faction of the city, mainly composed of former officials from the City of Belvitz grew malcontent that the Duke Paul favored new blood instead of the old. These officials, including Darius Ault, Artumee Ault, and Bruce Roger acted against the Duke though their plot failed and those who supported them either perished or fled. “Out with the old, in with the new! Innovation is key.” was what the Duke announced to his people after the coup. No truer words have embodied the beating heart of Ves, for the city rewards those who work and punishes those who lounge. The city’s bureaucracy grew, filled with fresh faces and keen minds, the city was granted it’s autonomy and it was given its own charter. When Emperor Anthony took the throne, Darius Ault was pardoned and appointed as the Grand Knight of the Empire and commander of his Dragon Knights. The Emperor and the Duke did not get along, rumors have it that the Emperor threw the Duke into a well when they were children, other rumors have it that the Duke was planning to claim the throne as he was revealed to be the Emperor’s half brother. The truth is that misery befell onto the City of Ves. The Dragon Knights came in force, enacting the Emperor’s will and terrorizing the citizens. Martial law was enacted in the City of Ves. Duke Paul, fearing for his life and the life of his Duchy abdicated his titles. The Duma of Adria elected the King of Hanseti and Ruska, Marius II as their Duke. Hoping for protection it was the Duchy’s undoing. The King Marius asked for justice for an Imperial Prince shedding the blood and leading a raid against the city. The Haenseni and Adrian populace that attended the trial were executed in a brutal spectacle of imperial justice. In a bid to save his own Kingdom, Marius allowed the Empire to set the City of Ves alight and plunder it. Ves smoldered and its inhabitants were scattered to the wind as ash. Though this was not to last. For the late Seneschal, Alfred Myre came to an agreement with Emperor Anthony and was named Prince of Vilachia with the City of Ves and the former lands of Adria as his domain. Under his watch the City stopped smouldering and was rebuilt. Whether under Adria or Vilachia, the City of Ves endures and will do so for a thousand lifetimes. The City of Ves is a domain which is legally free from feudal rule. While feudal lords such as the Dukes of Adria or the Princes of Vilachia have claimed suzerainty over the city and proclaimed it as the Capital of their states, its administrative capabilities have been left to its citizenry. The city is defined as a free city within Imperial Law and is thus defined as a city which is not bounded by aristocratic or feudal law, its populace not held in contract or tenure to the Imperial State or other lord, and has the power to elect by citizenry vote its executive and formal leader in the form of a mayor or other allocated title.[1] The City of Ves thus does claim its autonomy for perpetuity. [1] Prince Henry Joseph Horen, PANDECTARVM JOHANNES FREDERICVS IMPERATOR; Office of the High Magistrate of the Holy Orenian Empire, 1565. The City of Ves is granted privileges under the Gradic Rights which outline their autonomy and freedom from serfdom. The Gradic Rights were given to the Imperial City of Felsen during the reign of John II, Holy Orenian Emperor which allowed for greater autonomy to the city through a series of municipal rights. These rights came from a series of laws which gave privileges to the burghers, exemption from serfdom, and the ability for self-governance and self-defense. The Gradic Rights, c.1557 Hitherto the populace of this town shall be referred to as any legal landholder within municipal authority. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to waive feudal privilege and govern itself. Hence the town has the right to choose a leader from amongst its own. Hence the town has the right to produce and publish laws and rights regarding itself. Hitherto does the populace of this town have an exemption from serfdom. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to freedom of travel. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to collect tax, tolls, and impose fees. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to freedom of trade. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to a trial by judge. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to petition it’s lord. THE CITY ASSEMBLY OF VES The City Assembly of Ves acts as the collective representation for the citizenry of Ves.
