  1. THE IMPERIAL CONSTABULARY EST. 1753 Justice, Integrity, Service The Imperial Constabulary is the arm of the Ministry of Justice, reaching into investigative affairs, prosecution, and even offering up public defenders when necessary. The Constabulary does not work into affairs of the Judiciary directly, only presenting cases before them, and only in the case of prosecution do they work into the affairs of the Solicitors. ROLES: SOLICITOR-GENERAL: The head of the Ministry of Justice. Even if not playing a direct day-to-day role in the Constabulary itself, he is its chief officer, staffing and supervising the affairs of the Ministry. INVESTIGATOR-GENERAL: The Solicitor’s deputy, he may often take a more direct role in the Constabulary and generally heads an investigation when the Solicitor-General is not present. SHERIFF: Very much the lieutenants of the entire Ministry. Sheriffs can lead entire offices, typically lead investigations, and ensure the proper training of the Ministry. CONSTABLE: The namesake of the department, Constables are tasked with both investigative work and handling some legal cases. The top men for handling law enforcement matters. SOLICITOR: Solicitors are state-appointed attorneys deputized by the Solicitor-General to prosecute Crown cases in a court of law, taking the majority of their workload in the circuits. While not explicitly members of the Constabulary, solicitors work directly with investigators in preparing a legal case. They are expected to have sharp legal minds in order to traverse the Courts. In addition, solicitors are at times allocated to legal defense for accused criminals. INVESTIGATOR: Junior law enforcement officials, they’re tasked with assisting investigations while receiving legal training. LAW-MEN: A variety of new hires, taking up work involving clerical matters, armed protection, and basic assistance. These boys-in-blue undergo training in combat, the law, and investigation. A Constable tends to an investigation THE COMMITTEE OF STATE SOLICITORS Solicitors, while not explicitly serving within the Constabulary, do serve the Ministry of Justice and form the backbone of Imperial efforts in court and in the workings of the law. Often these Solicitors require special interviews, appointments, and education. In order to receive a full appointment to the State Solicitors’ committee, applicants must conduct a complete project or study of Imperial Law. These can range from teaching legal courses to studying criminal statistics or philosophy. DUTIES “I do solemnly swear that I will ceaselessly uphold the laws, order, and peace of the Emperor. I do solemnly declare that I will faithfully and loyally carry out the responsibilities of the Ministry of Justice and its Constabulary. I do solemnly affirm that should I act with infidelity unto my Emperor or Ministry, or otherwise disgrace my uniform, then may God have mercy upon my soul.” -The Lawman’s oath The typical member of a Constabulary office can have a wide variety of duties, from clerical work in the intricacies of law and documentation, to investigating in the field, to undercover work amongst the worst the realm has to offer. Constables are encouraged to both follow the regulations and orders of its command, while also being able to think on their feet and direct an investigation on their own. TRAINING Constabulary officials are required to undergo an immense amount of training. Training may often depend on the expected assignment of the individual, but all are expected to undergo basic instruction in combat, law, politics, and investigation. The Inspector-General often oversees and develops Constabulary training as he sees fit. OFFICES: The Constabulary maintains a major office in Helena, as well as offices to oversee the Imperial territories of the North and Northeast, and a budding office in the province of Kaedrin. SALARIES Constabulary officials are properly compensated. In addition to yearly salaries, officials often receive bonuses and commissions for high-quality work and solved cases. Those interested in joining ought to seek out a member at its office at 8 Pontian Place. ((wealthypiano#5651))

  4. SUBPOENA THE CROWN MINISTRY OF JUSTICE JOSEPH D. ADLER DESIRES TO SUMMON THE FOLLOWING PARTY BEFORE THE WESTERN CIRCUIT; ERIK OTHAMAN GODFRIC ALIMAR ON THE BASIS OF THE FOLLOWING PRINCIPLE(S), DOCTRINE(S), EDICT(S) OR ARTICLES OF LAW: 202.022 - Where an individual intentionally commits such an act of violence upon another which brings about their death, with no premeditation, this shall be a murder of the second degree. (Class V) The accused individuals found themselves in a situation in pursuit of a petty criminal. While in pursuit, the victim took an action which could be interpreted as aid to the criminal in his flight from the scene. The defendants, unable to pursue the criminal now on a horse, grabbed the victim, attempting to use them as leverage to ensure the fleeing criminal’s return. When these efforts failed, Mr. Othaman began violently dragging the victim towards New Reza, likely to be jailed. A Constabulary Sheriff objected to the violent manner of this as he reasonably felt it was cruel and unusual treatment. Mr. Othaman drew his sword, and impaled the victim through their side. An argument ensued, as well as an attempt by the Sheriff to free the victim from Mr. Othaman’s custody, ending in Mr. Alimar aiming a Crossbow at the Sheriff, defusing the situation before Mr. Alimar himself simply stepped forward, firing a bolt through the victim’s head.

Silversteede, witness ON THE DESIRED DATE OF: ((To be arranged OOC)) YOURS HUMBLY, JOSEPH D. ADLER PONTIAN PLACE 8 wealthypiano#5651
  5. Joseph Adler had of course caught news of the passing upon investigation. Seeing the grisly crime scene for himself, he’d struggled to feel anything. Perhaps he’d been in the business too long, seen a few too many scenes like it. In any case, he found himself pondering it for a long while, considering how to prosecute such a terrible act. This time, as a quiet nod to a former friend, foe, and associate.

  13. The Provisional Government of Sverige at Stockholm 1917- First came a declaration--one condemning the failures of the Swedish Crown to protect its own people in the face of protecting the Crown’s interest in the ongoing Great War. Then, the growth of the movement. As many of the people, particularly laborers and farmers in the South, who generally kept the Swedish economy afloat in this time of neutrality, began to finally feel it. Imports failed to flow inwards, and the Swedish economy didn’t have domestic capabilities to replace it. The entirety of the country became impoverished--besides, of course, the Monarchy and their closest allies. Gunnar Nykvist, a long argued defender of the people, and Swedish Chief of Navy, faced his removal and further conspiracy against him as tensions between the movement and the monarchy boiled early in 1917. However, he’d overplayed his hand. As Monarchist powers sought to eradicate him, it would put the Socialists in a tricky position: seize the opportunity, one which many movements in many countries might never have, or, pass on the chance, lose the widespread support of the entire Navy which they had then had, or ride it out with the political power gained until they could bide their time for a mutinous army in the face of starving families. But as the war ended, the Socialists had to seize the gap. The Navy began flying a new flag, workers got their rifles, and party members seized supplies, support, and the capital at Stockholm. Months would pass, and war would break out. Nykvist, now appointed Interim Secretary General, ordered his navy to blockade the Loyalist Forces, as he began to starve them out, using his control of the South and the Waterways. After a brief period of time stuck with a contested zone, rough borders, and questionable diplomacy, it seemed Nykvist finally had the government and military in the stable position he’d long known would be necessary for victory. Reaching this position of stability, several new policies developed: Men begin to entrench in their current positions. (Mod) A blockade of all goods entering Monarchist Sweden is enforced. This includes all Swedish ports, as well as Finnish roadways into Sweden in the South. Military goods stopped at the borders are seized. (Mod) Luxury, foreign goods swell into Sweden from Argentina and Mexico, along with food at levels not seen in years. The goods are quickly dispersed to the impoverished people and starving troops. (mod) A recruitment drive begins, and the Provisional government begins reorganizing citizenship in its territories. Military service is named mandatory for all citizens aged 18-24, with women serving non-combatant roles. (mod) A propoganda operation begins. All loyalists, particularly soldiers, are dropped fliers, offering clemency, food, and safety to surrender to the Socialists. Additionally, with total naval control, offers are made to workers and Socialist in the north that they will receive full support and several thousand soldiers, along with food and supplies, should any cities successfully rise up and flip to the Socialist cause. (mod). Operation: Swedish Fish commences (mod).
  14. Summary of Transcaucasian Federal decisions: The training of all troops recruited the year prior. (mod) The continued recruitment of Caucasian peoples, both local, diaspora, and foreign volunteers for the socialist cause. Investment of many Baku Field Funds into modern weaponry wherever possible. Continued entrenchment.
