  1. id say something but max got it pretty good. simply not a suitable nor legitimate candidate.

  3. ‡ A bird delivers you a letter. The envelope is sealed with the Order's logo. ‡ ACCEPTED Please report to an Officer at Fort Lumen, near Sutica, for your orientation.
  4. ((Isn't this the one that offered people USD in exchange for joining?)) A distant Grandmaster wishes only the best for the Harian establishment, upon anonymous sources telling him of the plot. He quickly pens a letter offering support from the Holy Order against the reportedly minuscule uprising.
  5. *does rituals so that he may slay the Ironsword family for the cult!
  6. Cayleb runs across a flier while packing his things in the Karlsburg Bastille. Immediately, he pens a letter to the Steward inquiring about the timing of the election announcement, as Maer Vanir had only served a little more than half his time as Maer, and even if the winner is found before, Maer Vanir is granted his full term (February the 1st). Cayleb smiles, receiving a letter back thanking him for correcting the error.
  7. Cayleb nods showing off the uniform to the Karlsburg Brigade "Alright, I'm all charged up"
  8. As an Orenian I gotta acknowledge the very valid points being made, and James is right. However, the point being made seems to be that Arteh was primary region owner, while in Felsen that system didn't exist. Moreover, that's a pretty shitty ******* system, so I think it's important to set up a system that's not awful for the future.
  9. Cayleb's expression turns somber and startled, unsure of how to proceed with the difficult debate. A serjeant quickly approaches, patting him on the back and awaking him from his trance. Quickly, he looks up to see Tosali's concession. He grunts, clearing his throat and speaking. "If you are conceding, Ser Tosali, then I think we have our Maer, as he has rather... unconventionally debated you to defeat. Congratulations, Lukas Vanir!" As Cayleb announces this, the crowd cheers, though some would note some of the Brigadiers remain silent. Cayleb lets the crowd quiet down, before continuing his announcement. "Ser Tosali, I would like a word soon. Congratulations once more to Maer Vanir!"
  10. (( Candidates will have 24 hours to reply on this thread to the questions asked. At the end of the 24 hours Voting shall begin. @pureimp10 @Luka)) Cayleb de Redmark comes out on a stage in Siegrad Square, announcing to a crowd as the Candidates flank him, announcing a Mayoral debate. NOTICE: ALL NON-KARLSBURG RESIDENTS MUST PAY A TEN MINA VOTING TAX IN ORDER TO VOTE DEBATE STAGE In the nature of pursuing good-natured policy and transparent ideas from the candidates, a debate shall take place for the candidates to reveal some of their policies before voting starts in a day. Here are the candidate's questions: The city recently ratified a new Charter. Offer a general opinion on the Charter. What needs added? What needs changed? Karlsburg is filled with empty homes and a tavern which is currently haphazardly run by the Royal Brigade. How can we fix these crises? Perhaps offer some of your tax and housing policy as solutions. Make a statement regarding general policy and less major issues. Examples include: Pay for the Royal Brigade, how to draw nobles into the city, how city funds will be spent, etc. Feel free to name your running mates for City Steward and Manager. If none are chosen, that is alright, but if they are not chosen by a week after your election, the appointments will be given to the Crown.
  11. ST. KARLSBURG CITY ELECTION It has come time for the first election for Maer of the city of St. Karlsburg. The City Marshal's office shall be overseeing the election to ensure efficiency and legality. The future Maer is expect to adhere to the guidelines listed in the new City Charter (( )) and have a deep understanding of it. With the need to establish the city's system, candidates should declare their candidacy post-haste, and have two saint's days to declare their candidacy and produce a speech regarding their declaration ((reply to this post with both)). ALL residents of Haense are open to run in this election, but will not be in future elections. The candidates shall be expected to appoint two council-members and live within the Mayoral residence. Best of luck to future candidates!
  12. “It has come to the attention of the current tenants of the city of St. Karlsburg that there exists no system for maintaining the city’s leadership and thus no system for maintaining the city. In response, current city leadership has written up a new system, as approved by the Crown, and approved by the City. Signed, Cayleb de Redmark City Marshal 1592" ST. KARLSBURG CITY CHARTER The City shall be run primarily by a Council of five. The Maer Chosen by a popular election from the people, the Maer heads the council and manages day to day operations as well as several appointments to the Council. The City Marshal Appointed by the Crown, the City Marshal heads a guard force within in the city and manages the enforcement of law and order. The High Steward Appointed by the elected Maer, the City Steward manages taxes and elections. He also runs the other stewards of the city. The City Manager Appointed by the elected Maer, the Manager directs events and manages a labor guild within the city. Royal Liaison Appointed by Crown, the Liaison maintains the Crown’s interests in the city, thus maintaining an active and fruitful relationship between the Crown and the Council. Every four years, the legal residents of the city shall hold an election to determine the Maer. Residency is defined in just ONE of the following ways: Owning a home. Being a legal employee of the City. Legally residing in a home while NOT owning the home and paying a twenty mina voting fee. Tax policy shall be determined by the council. A majority of three will determine tax policy. Policies not relating to taxes require a majority of four. This includes: Housing, Major Military reforms, City Expansions, and anything else which is obviously not tax policy Citizens with a dispute over policy must seek out at least two council members before pursuing a petition. Petitions with ten signatures may be reviewed by the Crown. Petition to recall a council member requires ten signatures and the signature of one council member. The petition then goes to the Crown for reviewal The Crown may not recall a council member without the approval of three council members, or the required petition. In the event of an inactive council, these laws are bypassed in the interest of the City. The Crown maintains serious authority within the City. The Crown settles serious disputes, maintains the city garrison, and dictates their share of the city taxes. The Maer’s powers and duties are defined as follows: May appoint Council Members during the first year of his term, after the year is up the Crown may appoint council members that the Maer has neglected to. If a council position vacates during the Maer’s last three years of a term, he has one year to replace them. Again, failure to do so obligates the Crown to appoint that Councilman. May call a vote regarding any type of policy, and propose any type of policy. Only the Maer may propose changes to the Charter. Duty to manage the city’s maintenance Duty to create and maintain an active, bustling city Duty to manage the council The Marshal’s powers are defined as follows: Power to petition to Royalty that the Charter has not been followed May call votes regarding city Military and legal policy Power and duty to enforce the law within the city Duty to maintain an active Garrison The Steward’s powers and duties are defined as follows: Duty to collect taxes Duty to manage fair elections Duty to manage sale of homes May call votes regarding tax policy, housing policy, zoning policy, and legal policy within the city The manager’s duties are defined as follows: Duty to manage a labor guild within the city Duty to conduct events within the city May call votes regarding zoning, labor, legal, and housing policy within the city The Liaison's duties are defined as follows: Duty to maintain communication between the Crown and Council Duty to lobby for the Crown’s interests in the City May not call any votes, only lobby for such and vote himself. Duty to aide in the overseeing of elections
  13. I can't speak for the Dreadlander mercenary actions, but I can certainly speak for my own motives and I trust that you might believe me. But regardless, with the Felsen Guard now having been forced to vacate the city, I'm told Role play has significantly declined in Felsen, and it's safe to say the city would be in a better situation than it is now if we weren't forced to vacate. But again, arguing about what the motives were or what took place isn't the purpose of this post, that'd be well silly considering how much it's likely already happening in Skype, TS, and in game. The purpose of this post was to provide feedback and establish that rule play certainly takes place on LotC, and it needs to be fixed.
  14. Can't really extrapolate for something that was never allowed to happen, but Felsen free state was the ambition! Seeking peace and halting the bloodshed to provide amnesty for all who did not violently oppose the regime! But t'is all beside the point, point is to make sure such confusion doesn't happen again, and to set some potential rules for these sorts of situations.
