  1. The Cardinal Helena rises from his chair. He steps towards the ballot. “We have been graced by a time of Peace and Prosperity for our realms. We have been blessed by GOD to have been allowed to have such a gracious and wise High Pontiff such as Daniel VI. This is now a time for the continuation of his legacy. While I appreciate the Cardinal Renfelds support of myself. I am still young, I am embroiled in matters of the State and as such I do not see myself fit to take the helm of the Church. I have prayed much on this matter. There is no doubt in my mind who I shall vote for. Let GOD smile upon us, and let us show our support for the Cardinal Avalain, our new High Pontiff.” The Cardinal Helena raises his piece of paper, then slips it into the ballot.
  2. Peter the Poor, Archchancellor of the Empire and Cardinal of Helena sits quietly in his office. He happily sips on his tea as a herald barges in. ”Your Eminence, the General-Solicitor has declared martial law and outlawed magic!” Peter’s face scrunches up momentarily. He waves his hand towards the door ”Go inform the General-Solicitor and the people of Helena that martial law is suspended, as is the other stipulations he has made today.”
  3. The Haense Letters A Compilation of Journal Entries from the Archchancellor, 1732-1733 Felsen in Twilight, Edmond Manston 1560 1st of HOREN’S CALLING 1732 I have arrived in Reza. A welcome sight since my departure from the City of Helena. I had presumed for much of my youth that my spirit was not designed for the rigours of travel. But I have embarked on a journey to tour the Realm, to meet the faces who we are divinely mandated to protect and assist. The morning of my departure a light snow dusted the area of Reza. As I approached I was first welcomed by the soft crunch as my carriage drove over it. My second welcome was Reza and Her people. A fine city. Tucked in a pleasant and fertile land, close to the mountains it was a sight I most needed as the journey wore heavily on me. Moving through the city gate’s I was pleased to see the bustle and life of the seat of Haense. I dismounted from my carriage and feeling no need for escort I began to wander the streets unaccompanied. Lo’! For how I was overjoyed to see the spirit of the North imbued within each man, woman and child of the City. They took to the kind hearth of the local tavern. While I commend the drinking spirit of the Crownlands those of Reza could outpace any man I have come across in the Capital. Suddenly I heard a scuffle outside, how quick I scurried out of the warmth of the tavern to see what the commotion was. But! I admit it was a show of the North’s spirit, men brawling as sport and to do so with such vigor! Though I enjoy the embrace of the townsfolk, I could not remain in the Square for long. With a helpful Haenseman leading me through the confusing streets of Reza I came upon Prikaz Palace. It was time I meet the King Andrik I and his royal court. Perhaps I am still inexperienced with the meeting of Royals, but a nervousness washed over me. To my enjoyment and relief, I write that King Andrik I is a most amiable man. He represents the best of Haense and must be invited to have tea within the walls of Helena. I lament, for I am weary. I have been given quarters within the Palace and it is time I retire to them. A Jovial Afternoon, Edmond Manston 1540 1st of SUN’S SMILE 1732 It has been some time since I last wrote. I suppose a summation of my recent ongoings is in order. A warm air has taken the town. The flowers have started to bloom. I have found new joy in a warm breeze that calm. The soft colors brightening up the already vibrant town around me. The City of Reza which was once downtrodden by the War of the Two Empires has made a miraculous recovery. I write from the gardens where I had the pleasure of meeting Mister Terrence May, the Lord Palatine of Haense. He is an open minded and ambitious man. Behind his carefully crafted spectacles is a face which one can only help but admire. So in the garden we sat and he illuminated me on the current politics of the Kingdom. The Lord Palatine and I immediately took off. Finding him most ambitious, I was enthralled by his grand visions of infrastructure to connect the Realm. While he tried time and time again for a new rail system, all of which was voted down by the Duma. I noted that perhaps a Canal is in order. The Northern Ferry Deal was immediately drafted and signed. I sent for Mister John de Vitus to join me in Reza. By the time I depart, I am sure that the Canal will be fast underway, ground broken. Then there is Ser Konrad, a Knight turned statesmen who was most kind to give me a tour of the Duma chambers. From what I can gather he is destined to be the next Lord Palatine, a fine addition to an already endearing body of statesmen. I have found that the political institutions of Haense work most effectively. The Duma which meets yearly is comprised of a fine group of statesmen and nobility who while factionalized into three, all work towards the ultimate betterment of the Kingdom. It is a reassuring unity which I think I can return to the Capital with. There are lessons to be learnt throughout the Realm. Perhaps it is wise to begin an investigation into the effectiveness of such a system on a broader Imperial scale. 22nd of TOBIAS’S BOUNTY, 1733 The past few months have been a pleasure. They have been so much so that I have forgotten to write about them. But I assure the reader, what excitement I have had amongst the Haenseman. How jovial they are and how open they have been to me. Now I must admit, I am writing this with a heavy heart. This is my last day in the Kingdom of Haense. I have had such pleasure and enjoyment from my travels that the year which I dreaded would feel long, now has felt too short. I leave the Kingdom of Haense on a high note. With ground broken on the canal connecting Reza to Helena, I am happy to say that the future of our unity has never been better. King Andrik has shown me nothing but hospitality. While I lament seeing Mister May’s resignation of the Lord Palatine. I am enthusiastic to see the rise of the bold Ser Konrad. The Realm has much to learn from the Kingdom of Haense. I for one walk away with a better respect and enjoyment of my counterpart. A better understanding of the realm and a renewed sense of optimism for our future. I think now, more than ever, we must think of the beauty in each land of the Realm. We must trust in GOD and reassure ourselves that is GODs plan to give us the good graces of one another. We are stronger together. I lament closing this chapter in my journey. But in the next few hours, my bags shall be sent ahead to the Grand Duchy of Suffonia, and with a most enthused smile, I shall follow. HIS EXCELLENCY, The Imperial Archchancellor Peter Cardinal Helena
  4. The Imperial Railway Act Anno Domini 1732 Felsen at Dusk Edmond J.B. Manston, 1532 By the Grace and good wisdom of GOD it has come to the attention of the Lord Protector Adrian of House Sarkozic and His Excellency the Archchancellor Peter Cardinal Helena that the crucial infrastructure of the Holy Oren Empire has fallen into disarray and neglect. It is our divine mandate to better the realm and continue the free flow of persons and possessions to and fro the great Cities of the Empire. With the grace and goodwill of the Crown and Imperial Administration and the accession by imperial delegation to allocate the powers to do so, the properties and possessions of Durant Co. Rail are transferred to the protections and responsibility of the Crown and Administration. Thus we act wholly within the offices of our imperial remit to hereafter establish the Imperial Rail pursuant to the following terms. Subject to this act, the Empire grants itself the following powers; To carry goods and passengers by the railway system extent within the empire. To provide within the empire further rail services and establish the financial and physical foundations for such. In places within the empire where it is so required, to provide for the passengers and other persons adequate stations for railway services. To provide for the empire such amenities and facilities for passengers making use of the services to purchase tickets and other services that it would appear to them requisite to provide. To construct, manufacture, purchase, maintain and repair anything required for the purpose of the establishment of the imperial rail-lines. To take the land under lease or tenancy that was otherwise being used for railway purposes. Subject to the provisions of this act, every agreement to which the previous railway operating body were a party, whether in writing or not, shall, unless its terms or subject matter should make it impossible that it should have effect in the manner provided by this section are modified as follows; The Empire had been a party to the agreement; and, Any references, explicitly worded or otherwise, to the previous company shall be modified to include the Holy Orenian Empire. Provided any modification of agreements to which the previous parties were privy cannot have effect as modified in the preceding manner, no other entity beyond the Holy Orenian Empire shall have their rights and liabilities cease to have effect, as is the divine authority of the imperial crown. Any following funds and securities collected by the rail-companies shall be bestowed upon the Imperial treasury, the holder of any minae may ask for remittance for any costs incurred in returning the funds to the crown. Any question or dispute which occurs as a result of this act are to be arbitrated by the authority of the imperial crown ex officio, although in the event of civil law suit resulting from the act of eminent domain the aggrieved party is permitted to appoint one arbiter to represent the case before the imperial court for three attempts before the aggrieved party is deprived of this right through exhaustion of it. HIS IMPERIAL EXCELLENCY, Adrian Leopold of the House of Sarkozy, Lord Protector of the Holy Orenian Empire, Governor-General of Helena, Duke of Adria, the Crownlands, Lorraine, and Roden, Baron of Renzfeld, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera.

  6. THE DECLARATION OF A REGENT Issued and Confirmed by Prince Alfred Myre of Ves, 15th of The Amber Cold, 1712 As I lie bedridden by a mysterious illness, I do pen this with a heavy heart. While I have enjoyed a fruitful and glorious time with managing our fair Golden City of Ves, this ghastly sickness that I have been taken by prevents me from continuing to properly fulfill my office. Therefore, it is such that I appoint EDWARD HENRY MORRIS as my Regent. Upon reflection of the aforementioned Man, it is of which I see a pool of ability and talent. He has managed the Empire of Man under the just Emperor Augustus I of House Horen with grace and composure. He has been by my side now for some years, aiding me in all matters law and administration. He shall rule as I would have, he is charged to be just and righteous. His word shall be like my word, and shall be carried out as if we were of the same voice. While I lay bedridden I wish to write upon the success, good graces and future of the Golden City of Ves. It is with my belief, that the success of Ves has been created by those who walk the streets every day. To those who are patrons in the Bird and Bard, I commend you. To those who see the fair theatrics of Mister Timothee and the late Timeo de la Baltas, I commend you. While the Institutions of the City are the most just and righteous of its kind, it is on the will and involvement of the citizen that we have come so far. I commend you. Upon the good graces of Ves. We must remain steadfast in our belief in the Institution that is the Free City of Ves and it’s municipal government. I encourage all those who inhabit the City to take part in it. Further I implore each citizen to attend earnestly and with the utmost sense of duty the civic duties which act as the fundamental building block of the City. The Future of Ves is bright, for we aspire to be the most prosperous City on this new found land. For we aspire to create a place of true citizen engagement, in which we act just to one another. At no other time in the modern chronicles of history can I account for a City with such vigor and energy to be razed and rebuilt within the year. At no other time can I account for a city which has been inhabited by such true citizens as we have now. We must remain steadfast in our pursuits. When my illness passes I shall return to you, I shall return a stronger man, in spirit and mind. Until then, may GOD Bless the Regent Edward Henry Morris. Dutifully Signed, Alfred Myre, Prince of the Golden City of Ves, Captain and Defender of Liberty

  9. 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.
