    THE CORONATION OF ANTONIUS HOREN

    THE CORONATION OF ANTONIUS HOREN 3rd of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1707 The day had started quietly, the morning sun painting the city of Helen a gentle orange; rays of light breaking over the city’s imposing walls and illuminating the empty streets in a broad, bronze hue. Such calm was deceiving however - although the city streets were still quiet, the hallowed silence broken only by the yapping of stray dogs and the gentle laughter of children playing in the street, the palace was filled with a buzz of frenetic energy. Servants shuffled back and forth urgently, motivated to greater vigour by a constant stream of curses from the stewards of the household. As the hours passed and the gentle dawn gave way to bright blue skies, marred only by the occasional drifting cloud, the city shrugged off its lethargic awakening and burst alive. The streets filled with a throng of travellers and visitors: here a visiting noble of Haense, clad in furs and house colours, there a merchant adorned in silks and rings, forcing his way through the crowd. All had only a single destination in mind - that of the cathedral which towered above the homes nearby. It was a momentous occasion they had come to witness - the type which only came about once in a generation. The handing down of responsibilities; the rise of a new generation, fit to surpass their fathers and build on their successes. There is something sacred to the coronation beyond even its promise of divine right and power; it represented the beginning of a new era, a promise of success and renewed, strengthened power. It was this which the travellers had come to see. It was for this occasion that they crammed inwards, pews rammed with visitors from across an entire world come to pay homage to the most powerful man alive. Light streamed in through stained glasses as the masses sweated, sedentary, awaiting the great event. With every passing minute the throng of humanity increased, more and more packing themselves in, and yet it was not a riotous affair but instead respectful, devoid of raised voices and crude jests. Before the congregation stood the figure of Pontian II, robed and preeminent, casting his slow gaze across the masses as if in judgement. Behind him a holy flag, slowly fluttering back and forth. Within his hands he held a crown, cradling it gently, off which the light seemed to bounce to dazzle any who looked directly at it. Waiting in the front row, just before him, were the flower of the Empire’s nobility - the kings of Haense and Curon stood proud and surrounded by their families and attendants. Then, just as the crowd seemed to reach a natural lull and settle down hushed, the doors flung open, a corps of soldiers trooping in. Behind them strode Antonius Horen - the man that the crowds had come to honour. He strode down the aisle, boots muffled by the velvet carpet, chin held up and eyes facing forwards, cloak flowing out behind him. All eyes turned towards the soon-to-be Emperor, a revered silence coming over the hall as he halted before the figure of the High Pontiff, slowly lowering himself to one knee. The clergyman opened his arms, looking out of the crowd, as the coronation began. “Antonious Horen - do you swear in the sight of the Creator, GOD most high, to uphold the laws of the Empire? Antonius Horen - do you swear to protect your people until your dying breath? Antonius Horen - do you swear to never falter in your fervour for the word of GOD, to uphold His word and Church? The High Pontiff reeled out the oath, one after another, and to each one Antonius rose his head and offered a simple “I do,” steely eyes glancing forwards. Pontian II paused for a moment before leaning forwards and placing the crown onto his scalp, offering a brief smile. After a moment’s pause - head still bent lower - he stood and turned to face the crowd, raising his arms to a massed roar, standing not as Prince but Emperor Antonius I.

    OF FATHERS AND SONS

    ✠ OF FATHERS AND SONS Issued and Confirmed by His Imperial Majesty Augustus I of House Horen,The 5th of Owyn’s Flame, 1706 There is no greater love between a Father and Son, as GOD loved Horen and his Children as do I love my children. So do I love my Father, his Imperial Highness Antonius. Since my ascension to Emperor I have watched my sons grow, all of them. And through the passing the time I have watched from close and afar as they developed into Men that I aspired to when I was young. We all come into this world with plans and we hope to leave it with them all completed. However, the truth cannot wait for death. It yearns to break free and let itself be known. So it is now, that I, His Imperial Majesty Augustus I of House Horen seeing that my children have come of age, unburden myself and step forward into the Light of GOD and confess my wrongs that I have put upon the blood of my blood. Let it be known that His Grace, the Duke of Adria, Paul Franz and his sister Velara are not the children of Ratibor Carrion. They are of my blood, they are my children, created out of wedlock between myself and Alexandria Horen- my sister. Paul Franz and Valera are not of House Carrion, they are Jrent. I love my son as my Father loved me. I allow the Duma of Adria to decide upon my son Paul Franz Jrent continuing his reign and that he is to form a Cadet Branch of the House of Horen and take up the name of that Branch. In unburdening myself I see that my life is not here, in the Empire of Man or on this Continent. I am not to remain living above the City of Helena, roaming the gardens and living out my days in peace and whatever harmony can bring a Father who conceals a Son. My mind and spirit draw me to Aeldin to search for my father and brother. It beckons me to speak with them as we did when I was young. To beg for my father’s forgiveness in having played a hand all those years ago in his exiling to Aeldin. I, His Imperial Majesty, Augustus I of House Horen therefore abdicate the Crown of the Empire of Man and all of my titles to my legitimate son, His Imperial Highness, Crown Prince Antonius of House Horen. He shall continue to guide the Empire of Man as I have and my predecessor. He shall expand our wealth, our territories and our Faith. He is the rightful Protector of Man and Holder of the Mark of Pertinax. My son, Prince Romulus is to be granted the Duchy of Cascadia. May he rule in GOD’s Grace and Wisdom which were levied upon me and His Imperial Majesty Aurelius I of House Horen. In abdicating to my Son, I first establish what shall act as the Line of Succession until my Son, Antonius is blessed with a child. His Imperial Highness Prince Antonius of House Horen | His Imperial Highness Prince Romulus of House Horen | Her Imperial Majesty Empress Helen of House Horen In the event that those named in the line of succession are unable to rule and be Crowned, the Empire of Man is placed in the Regency of His Imperial Excellency the Archchancellor Mister Edward Henry Morris. These are my final decrees, carried out upon the publishing of this letter. IN NOMINE DEI HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Augustus I of the House of Horen, Emperor of Man, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, Savoy, Courland, Santegia, and Norland, Duke of the Crownlands, Cascadia, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Carolustadt, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelhold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, Farfolk, etcetera.

    REGARDING THE LINE OF JOHN

    REGARDING THE LINE OF JOHN Issued and Confirmed by His Imperial Highness, Charles of the House of Horen, 14th of Owyns Flame, 1706. Upon my travels in Aeldin I, His Imperial Highness, Charles of the House Horen, Prince of Alstion and Patriarch of the Line of John have uncovered news of my son and heir Alexander Frederick of House Horen’s illegal marriage to Ailsa of House Gromach despite a pre-existing marriage to Analiese of House Barbanov. Therefore as Patriarch of the Line of John I act within my lawful right to decree that such a marriage was not condoned, allowed nor should be accepted in the eyes of any GOD-fearing man or woman. Ailsa of House Gromach is to be stripped of her fraudulent relation to the House of Horen and the titles and formalities that were levied upon her through her now unrecognized marriage to Alexander Frederick of House Horen. Joanna Margaret Jrent shall be recognized as the illegitimate daughter of Alexander Frederick Horen and will not be associated with the name of Horen or any imperial titles associated with it. She is named a Jrent - as all bastards should be. In the absence of my heir and myself, Her Imperial Highness, Amelia Philippa Horen will be recognized as the matriarch of the line of John. IN NOMINE DEI, HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Augustus of the House of Horen, Emperor of Man. HIS IMPERIAL HIGHNESS, Charles of the House of Horen, Prince of Alstion.

    BROTHERS AND THEIR FEUDS

    BROTHERS AND THEIR FEUDS From the Office of the Archchancellor It is apparent to the Crown that over the past saints days the Duchies of Curon and Adria have failed to see the unity which GOD and Emperor Aurelius ushered into the Empire of Man. Sloth shall be stamped out, decadence shall be combatted. Like siblings who argue incessantly with their parents, it is apparent now more than ever that there is only one course of action. It is with this in mind that His Imperial Majesty Emperor Augustus I of House Horen, whom we may all consider the Father of our Empire, that the feuding brothers shall meet on open field to put an end to their strife. It is of the utmost importance to note that this is not a condoning of hostilities outside of this Field. This is not an allowance of raids, going to one another's Lands to harass each other or anything in relation to the aforementioned actions. In one saints week (SUNDAY Feb 3rd , 3pm EST), the levies of the Duchy of Curon and Adria shall meet on the field. We are the Empire of Man. Man has come together in order to defend against outside powers, those with mal-intent and those who purposefully break the Laws of GOD and Man. Therefore, there shall be no use of mercenaries, bandits and or foreign influences. This is a matter that has occurred between Brothers and shall be settled between Brothers. Any failure to meet His Imperial Majesty Emperor Augustus I of House Horen’s demand shall be met with swift and immediate action. If either party sought aggression or decided to act hostile towards one another, then it is expected that they have the strength and ability from within to back up these hostilities. The reliance or need for mercenaries, those not sworn to the Emperor, those who are sworn to outside powers or otherwise is an offense of the highest degree. Those who write of sloth or decadence should have no reliance or need for these outside efforts. It only goes to show hypocrisy, their own sloth and ill-preparations. After the skirmish the feud shall put to rest and the losing Party will give up a relative to the Duke for marriage to the winning Party. So His Imperial Majesty Emperor Augustus I of House Horen declares, and it is in his wisdom and grace given to the Crown from GOD that the Empire of Man shall be stronger and more productive than before. IN NOMINE DEI HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Augustus I of the House of Horen, Emperor of Man, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, Savoy, Courland, Santegia, and Norland, Duke of the Crownlands, Cascadia, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Carolustadt, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelhold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, Farfolk, etcetera.

    PEACE AND DECAY

    PEACE AND DECAY From the Office of the Archchancellor The recent turmoil between the Duchies of Curon and Adria have brought a profound realization upon the Crown. Since the unity and peace brought to Man by Emperor Aurelius I of House Horen, we have enjoyed splendor and a great increase in our wealth, both in knowledge and coin. But as all Peace and fruitful gain bring, we have become the home of decadence. The Crown’s vassals who now enjoy the Empire have grown slothful, their bellies fat and their populace demotivated. Decadence is the decay of our Society. The Crown neither looks favorably upon the disingenuous behavior between its Vassals nor the brewing conflict between them. Peace may breed decadence and a loss of respect to the ties which bind one another together and to the Crown. But War between Brothers shall only lead to drawn out conflicts for the decades to come. Therefore, in this realization, His Imperial Majesty Augustus I of House Horen guided in grace and wisdom does see it fit to end the Weregild. Henceforth, any aggression levied upon vassals from vassals shall be met with a swift and immediate punishment. In these trying times, we must recall that Man must have order to strive to be with GOD. Further, with the Grace and Wisdom of his Imperial Majesty Augustus I, the Duke Wilhelm of Curon, Duke Ratibor of Adria, their respective Marshals and Chancellors are summoned to the Capital of Man. Failure to meet this summons shall be seen by the Crown as willful disobedience. (WEDNSDAY JAN 30, 7 PM EST @KosherZombie @ChumpChump @Aetosion) We shall combat decadence only through order and the tightening of the reigns. We shall combat slothfulness only through an increase in devotion to GOD. The Emperor’s Peace shall be maintained, and only the Crown is of the authority to alter this. IN NOMINE DEI HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Augustus I of the House of Horen, Emperor of Man, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, Savoy, Courland, Santegia, and Norland, Duke of the Crownlands, Cascadia, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Carolustadt, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelhold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, Farfolk, etcetera.

    The Virtue of Poverty and the State

    The Virtue of Poverty and the State It is either known or is becoming known that I, Mister Edward Henry Morris lack great financial means and material possessions. I in fact only recently moved into a home. Previously I lived in a small room of the Carolustdat Tavern. Further I must contend that I only moved into a home to accommodate for a Family to which I am Patriarch of and it is my duty to them as such to provide the means of living more comfortably. It would appear then to be an odd relation between my duty as the Archchancellor and my financial misgivings. To many it is thought that the Archchancellor should be a man of great financial means, a Man who cares for his ledger like he cares for his Wife. But I, a Commoner who has ascended to the position through merit which is very telling of our contemporary State has very little wealth. Despite the sneers of the Aristocrats and Burghers I in fact prefer the lifestyle of little. Without the satisfaction of accruing it is my drive of love and devotion to the Empire and Her people that brings me satisfaction. Thus I am ever content in laboring for the State. I am pleased to reside in a lifestyle in which my ultimate satisfaction is found in the benefit of State. Much like a Priest who casts out wealth and titles to find a closeness to GOD. I am able to a similar closeness to GOD and His Creation. I am thus a Man who is not easily corrupted by bribery, having no real pleasure in Wealth. Further I am a Man who shall labor for the State and GOD as it is ultimately the just and virtuous thing to do; not because I know I shall be given a great monetary sum or other reward for doing so. I cast off the personal gain and fruit for the Fruit of the Empire, for the Gain of the Empire. Thus I remain steadfast in my life and philosophy. I do not mind the jeers and jests to which I am the butt of. For I know that I am a man whose beliefs are virtuous and in closeness to GOD. And I know that for my virtues, those who make jest of my life shall benefit. We must reject decadence which leads to the decay of Man. We must reject monetary and materialist corruption which brings us away from GOD and State. To benefit even those, who are in fact my fellow Man, I gain a satisfaction in my Duty. Dutifully Signed, His Imperial Excellency, the Lord Archchancellor, Mister Edward H. Morris, esq
  15. TO THE REFUGEES OF ROSEYNR, It is no easy task to leave your home and people. It is no easy task to leave after having come to these lands in pursuit of a better life. In escaping the faltering of Roseynr and it’s subsequent turmoil many of you have left behind personal belongings, heirlooms, and other valuables. Those who leave Roseynr are akin to Man in past centuries. We too have been forced to leave behind our way of life be it Continental Disaster, War or otherwise. Therefore, in the grace and good wisdom that befits the sovereign of the Empire of Man, His Imperial Majesty Augustus I does cordially request that the refugees of the Roseynr Disaster attend Imperial Court in the coming days. His Imperial Majesty yearns to come to the aid of those who escaped tragedy in Roseynr. He shall accommodate those who come to the Empire of Man with protection, wealth and a new life. Those who come and present themselves before His Imperial Majesty shall be housed and taken into the serene protection of the Empire of Man. ((Court is Saturday the 12th, 5 PM EST)) In Nomine Dei, HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Augustus I of the House of Horen, Emperor of Man, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, Savoy, Courland, Santegia and Norland, Duke of the Crownlands, Cascadia, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Carolustadt, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelhold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, Farfolk, etcetera.
