  1. +-Der Baer Hanza-+ The Bear Company Hexmen As a Ser Harlan Saxe once said “Great threats require great men. On occasion, greater threats require groups of significant, motivated men to mitigate them effectively.” A mission to build upon the legacy of ‘The Manticore Initiative’ by using Marked principles and knowledge. A group of men, honoring their predecessors, will protect the innocent from supernatural, unnatural, and all things considered abnormal or abominable threats. Der Baer Hanza’s presence becomes public for the first time in decades and the training of a new generation of reformed monster hunters begins anew. The missive is nailed to various notice boards across the Human Kingdoms [This guild will operate under a strict PK clause] ((OOC: The official recruitment forum will be posted after the release of the new map.))
  2. ArchChancellor Jonah Stahl-Elendil votes Aye on both nominations.
  3. ArchChancellor Jonah Stahl-Elendil To Karl Amador, whom I once called a colleague… I thank you for your dedication to the transparency of state, especially in regards to the state you have been removed from. What an obedient servant, truly. Had I known that you did not pay into Imperial systems like every other citizen of the Empire, the door surely would have been closed to you. It’s not your money we would be spending, afterall. You have neglected much context in your missive which I am happy to provide for readers everywhere. It is interesting how people think if one uses words like ‘secret’ enough, it creates an image of a personality. Upon further scrutiny, anyone who is familiar with Imperial institutions would notice that you forgot to mention that the House of Commons of the Imperial Diet has powers of taxation, budgetary oversight, and access to treasury documents. Frankly, you have only told people that we were doing our jobs and doing them well. Most of us, anyways. Furthermore, your servitude to the obstructionist bloc radical Members of the Commons shows that perhaps state craft is not for you. I am certain the Duma will have you on their bench, one day. It is disappointing, Karl, that you have actively benefited from Imperial funds, when you never paid into any system yourself. Are the protection of Haense during the Nordling Wars and a grant ranging upwards to 25,000 Marks to our beloved Northern Geographic Institute insufficient examples of other people's money hard at work for your benefit? I can list other reasons as well, but let’s move on instead. Also, let us begin differentiating between speculation of Imperial development and being given priority access to an ongoing diplomatic deal due to your status as an elected representative with budgetary power. You actively accuse the Holy Orenian Empire of preparing for occupation and expansion, when reality shows that this is not even close to the truth. It begs the question why the military would show us such documents? Perhaps to find a potential snake in the grass? I hope you are aware that the Ministry logo you have enclosed is not part of any existing or previously Imperial office. Works of fiction can be fun, but let us look towards reality for meaningful retrospection. It is also interesting to read that you admit, plain as day, you were elected to do the bidding of the Hanseti-Ruskan monarchy, rather than the people who voted for you. It is obscene that you would argue for the supremacy of a monarchical aristocratic entity like the Haenseni crown rather than the people you claimed to represent. I leave you with this, Karl; Your country has been expelled. Released from the bonds of fraternity and fidelity and granted independence free of conflict. I suggest you be happy in this like your fellow countrymen, and look inward instead of longingly back to the days where you got to sit all day. You have so much opportunity, after all, now that you are free of Imperial tyrants! So why do you spend your days writing about foreign states? Turn yourself inwards, please, and spend your energy constructively. That you must write this about my government causes me great concern about the internal affairs of Haense… I hope all goes well for you and your country in the future, Karl. Warm regards, HIE Jonah Stahl-Elendil, ArchChancellor of the Holy Orenian Empire J.S.E

  6. THE JOSEPHITE PARTY The General Election for the 20th Imperial Diet, 1787 “For The Dignity Of All” ________________________________________________ Well before our first victory in the 16th Imperial Diet of 1764, the Josephite Party had been the driving force of progressive change in the Holy Orenian Empire. It shall continue to be so, but only with your help. Our nation views the Rights of Man as fundamental truths crucial to maintaining the fabric of humanity. It is the Josephite party that sees these rights as inalienable and divinely inspired. It is these truths and our creed, “for the dignity of all”, that passionately inspires and unites us in purpose to do what is right. We in the Josephite Party represent a philosophy of civil fairness, individual liberty, and economic opportunity. Policies of the Past The fair governance under Archchancellor Jonah Stahl-Elendil, leader of the Josephite majority in the House of Commons and the Imperial Ministry, has overseen the expansion of opportunities for the common man. ________________________________________________ The balancing of the Imperial budget in 1768, in partnership with the Basrid Ministry, reduced taxes and reduced Imperial spending by 30% and actively put more money into the pockets of Imperial citizens. With adjustments, the Marna Economic Plan has helped organize and incentivize Orenian business leaders to hire new staff and increase production in Helena and Kaerin. Rights of Orenian workers have been protected through the Josephite’s Intellectual Property Act. Released the city of Helena from the overreaching Ministry of the Interior and the Livery Boards, allowing it to accumulate its own coffers. Under a mayor with Josephite ideals, the unrepresentative livery board was abolished, allowing for a more representative city assembly with aldermen. Guaranteed speedy trials by passing the Swift & Fair Justice Act, compelling the Ministry of Justice and Imperial Court system to a timeframe when processing and hearing and trials so as to avoid prolonged imprisonment and justice to the people. Passing fair election laws that prevent individuals, groups, and organizations from coercing political action from individuals. Increased immigration and economic activity into the City of Helena, attracting new businesses. Negotiated a meaningful non-aggression agreement with the Kingdom of Norland, making the world safer for Canonists. Policies for the Future The Josephite platform for the election of 1787 covers social, economic, and legal reforms that are designed to improve the lives of our citizens, and the function of our Imperial institutions. ________________________________________________ Passage of the Land Grant system to make it easier for citizens, businesses, and entities to apply for tracts of land. Better regulation of land and businesses to prevent misuse and depletion of natural resources. Ratification of new treaties and foreign policy through the Imperial Diet before submitting to the Crown for approvalProtect practical freedom of speech through feasible protection policy. Charter and subsidize new corporations, guilds, and other organizations. Create a national Solicitor and Barrister registry and license, making it unlawful to practice if not licensed. To ensure the protection and expansion of civil liberties to all Orenian citizens. Candidates for the House of Commons Detailed here is the list of every endorsed Josephite candidate currently in the running for the House of Commons, pending their registration and approval. Each candidate has been chosen and endorsed because of their character, principles, and drive to create a better Oren. Ticket I ArchChancellor Jonah Stahl-Elendil ((JakobiWitness)) Vice Chancellor Franz Sarkozy ((Nectorist)) Mr. Edwin Winter ((Barony)) Ticket II Mr. George Dubois ((LouisGY)) Mr. George Kovachev ((esterlen)) Mr. Thomas Aquinas ((ncarr95)) Ticket III Ms. Annabelle Kelmenour ((Audyush)) President George Galbraith ((MrChenn1)) Mr. Philip Pruvia ((SerFinnick)) Mayoral Candidates Dimitri Orlov for the City of Helena ((Bogs_Binny)) The Government The argument of the opposition in which a cabinet minister can take advantage of the legislative is meddled with logical fallacies. If a person, regardless of cabinet or not, wants to run for elective office, they too must be accountable to the people. Thus, in association, the ministerial governance will be held accountable to the people through this manner, through confidence and confirmation. Such is the role of the House of Commons to provide confidence in the Cabinet, should you support these candidates, this is the government that is promised to you.

  7. 17th of Horen's Calling, 1787 FRIENDS AND FELLOW-CITIZENS, As many of you know, a difficult decision has recently been made in regards to the state of our Empire. After decades of suspicion and the hardening of men's hearts, Her Imperial Majesty Anne I has, by decree and by providence, deemed it appropriate to release the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska from vassalage, promptly expelling them from the Holy Orenian Empire as a political entity. Let it be known that the Stahl-Elendil Ministry maintains that this expulsion was wholly necessary, though its circumstances certainly unfortunate. I believe that expulsion of Hanseti-Ruska is the correct course of action, and the only one that empowers us to march out of this stagnant, distrustful period to continue the progress of Mankind. Experience of recent decades shows that we cannot do so together, and so we shall not. This is the right answer, for it was the only answer left. The visions of ancient tradition within the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska are not aligned with the providence of Imperial progress, making it irresponsible for us to restrict ourselves as a country, and irresponsible to mandate such a vision upon a populace so certain it cannot find happiness within it. This, as well as the disdain for Imperial institutions of popular representation, fair trial, and individual liberty, show that some parts of humanity are not in step with the majority. These are the causes for our separation, and so we must continue forward as Orenians, unshackled. Let it be known that our Orenian ideals and the Rights of Man will not be compromised by those who are so dramatically distanced from them. This expulsion however, is designed to aid in the preservation of meaningful peace. Out of the desire to maintain the strength of mankind, an alliance has been declared between the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska and the Holy Orenian Empire. The Stahl-Elendil Ministry dedicates itself to peace between realms, and has faith in His Majesty, Josef I to share this dedication. It would be dishonest to say that the challenges that directly lead to the expulsion won’t be overtaken by things we have been forced to neglect, and things we did not predict. But Orenians are made of stronger stuff, and we shall not be deterred. With renewed energy and vigor, and the unending resilience of the Orenian spirit, we are now united in the purpose of going beyond what we once thought possible. May we look onward and upwards, and through the grace of One God, One Empire, One Empress, continue the march towards happiness. His Imperial Excellency, Jonah Stahl-Elendil J.S.E
  8. A letter from ArchChancellor Jonah Stahl-Elendil arrives at Varoche Hall. “My fellow members of the House of Commons, I am proud to be here for the 19th Imperial Diet. In light of our legislative duty, we must choose our presiding officer. As leader of the House of Commons, I nominate Mister George Galbraith for the President of the House of Commons, on behalf of the Josephite bench. He is the living image of what a statesman ought to be in our country, and I trust him to preside over the chamber.”

  10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yenSBfjnK6I&list=RD2hqxhFm44fY&index=23 THE STAHL-ELENDIL MINISTRY The Orchestral Chamber, 1777 PREAMBLE, IN accordance with Edict of Reform, 1773 and under the precedent set by the Edict of Establishment, 1732. It is the legal right and leal duty of His Imperial Majesty’s chosen Arch-Chancellor to formally name appointees to his Government as Ministers of the Crown; pending the affirmation of Parliament. It is his furthermore his duty to act as the personal right-hand to the Monarch. The current administration has thus been raised with the dissolution and retirement of the faithful Sir Simon Basrid; succeeding is his own Vice-Chancellor: The Honourable Jonah Stahl-Elendil, 1783. His is the fourth Ministry to succeed from the Reestablishment of the Empire in 1725. COURSE OF LIFE, His Excellency Jonah Stahl-Elendil, Archchancellor, 1783 JONAH STAHL-ELENDIL was born in 1675 to the Adunian colony of Brolwic in the Heartlands of Aeldin to the departed House of Elendil, long since separated from their Imperial roots. Once under Godfrey I his kin lived first Dukes of Westfall in Asulon, and post-exodus as Kings of Adunia upon the lands first held by the Rhoswenii of old, the fabled White Rose. With a loss of fortune in the tumultuous years following it is only apparent that Elendil is an ancient name with a storied past. Fallen from grace only to survive the ages and reemerge back into the light from centuries of exile. In the later reign of August I Emperor of Man, Stahl-Elendil found himself returned to the land of his ancestor’s past as a man of anything but ancient legacy. As a traveler he roamed the land with a motley crew of outcasts, a crew of companions with naught but a slurbow in his hand and a big iron on his hip. The life of a wanderer did not suit for long, and despite this time of open air and free wind in time Jonah was thrust upon the den of politics with the reformation of the true Empire and the installation of Alexander II. Though he served for a decade beforehand in the initial force of the Imperial State Army, rising to the rank of Ensign in his first tenure of service. In time Jonah continued to endure as a prominent figure in the City of Helena through three successive ministries of Imperial Administration. As leader of the people, head of the Josephite Party which saw an undefeated streak in both the Senate and it’s subsequent successor: The House of Commons. It was Jonah’s dignity which drove each victory, and the strength of ideals which guided the people’s will. His long years of service in the Imperial Diet earned Stahl-Elendil the utmost respect of the Archchancellor Sir Simon Basrid, and in time when his time in office grew to its expiry it was he who began the process of Jonah’s ascension. There would be no better successor to such a bulwark of statesmanship. In his time of ultimate service Jonah Stahl-Elendil has affirmed his most firmly held belief in the Josephite creed: The Natural Rights of Man; Freedom and Justice for all under the law of the Emperor. MANIFESTO, The backbone of this new Elendil Ministry is based foremost in the principles of Emperor Joseph I of Marna. His articles which outline the first written and legally binding acknowledgement of the Natural Rights of Man; the outlining of privileges that all mankind must be guaranteed and afforded: The Nenzing Proclamation, 1715, and The Circular Letters 1-12. The principles each inscribed by the Josephite political patron provide for this newfound administration it’s guiding belief in a policy of free enterprise, an expansion of social programs and citizen involvement beyond the scope of what any might imagine. It is then the will of the Emperor that the internal and civil expansions continue unperturbed in the form of further democratization and participation for the Imperial citizenry, an increased focus on the reform of the Imperial Judicial system and the Courts. Renewed relations in both a domestic and foriegn capacity, and finally the further dissolution of the absolutist tendencies of a medieval past. COUNCIL OF STATE THE CHANCELLERY Designated as all those serving directly beneath the wing of the Archchancellor subsequently also the Vice-Chancellor respectively. The department includes direct special advisory functions, as well as encompassing all the necessary utilities cohesion required for inter-governmental affairs and is headed nominally by the Vice-Chancellor in official capacity.

  11. A Call For Accountability 5th of Amber Cold, 1781 To both my esteemed colleagues, as well as the citizens of our beloved empire, I would like to congratulate those sitting in the House. Both the Josephite Majority, and the Independent members. It is through us that our commitment and proposed reforms to the Imperial Diet shall continue. However, it’s important that we not misunderstand the Diet’s past, nor the ideology of the Majority. We, as Orenians, must recognize that we are unified in fidelity to our greater state, and the ideals shared by our fellow Independent legislators are ideas that the Josephite party has campaigned on, if not already things we’ve done, or begun to act on. Under the Josephite Majority, comprehensive Treasury audits for the government organizations were started three years ago. We have cut Imperial spending down by nearly forty percent during the 16th and 17th Imperial Diet sessions, delivering a balanced budget and a hefty surplus for all tax paying Orenian citizens. Furthermore, fair and balanced elections have already been initiated through the restructuring of the Office of Civil Affairs, and the bipartisan effort to independently establish Helena’s municipal government from the Interior has already begun, through our contact with their Lord Mayor. Furthermore, the Imperial Diet established the precedent of auditing Imperial ministries. The Josephite Majority has led the battle for progress and justice in our country, ranging from Sir Konstantin’s legal reforms, to George Galbraith’s commitment to promoting the Orenian worker, and Angelika’s Bykov’s social justice law. Our creed is Dignity For All, and we have and will continue to deliver. We shall not be obstructed in our task, and I am proud to invite the independent caucus to do the same. I know in my heart, we can count on them. For we acknowledge our established precedent of the responsibility of oversight for the Council of State, on behalf of the Josephites, Minister and MHC, George Galbraith, volunteers himself and the Ministry of Treasury to an audit by the House of Commons. Upon this, we invite other pertinent ministers to similarly step up and do the same, to ensure a properly run government for the people. We look forward to working with our fellow legislators in these upcoming years. Signed, Leader of the House, Jonah Stahl-Elendil, MHC George Galbraith, MHC Sir Konstantin Wick, MHC Angelika Bykov, MHC Padraig O’Rourke, MHC Ostromir Carrion, MHC
  12. A letter from Jonah Stahl-Elendil arrives to the Varoche Hall. “Fellow Colleagues, I humbly accept the nomination for Leader of the House. Furthermore, I support Mr.Rakoczy for President of the Commons. God bless you all. Regards, J.S.E”
