  1. The Ministry of the Interior’s administration recognizes and approves the The Gustavian Zoning Livery Proposition of 1770. Signed, Jasper Carrington, Secretary of the State for the Interior
  2. Civil Servants of the Ministry of the Interior congregating at a boardroom in Varoche Hall, 1768 THE MINISTRY OF THE INTERIOR Est. 1732 The Ministry of the Interior is an administrative department formed below the Council of State, charged with the duties of managing the lands of the Crown as well as all public lands. The head of the department is the Secretary of State for the Interior, often shortened to the Secretary of the Interior, who sits as one of the Great Ministers of the Imperial Cabinet. His role is to oversee administration of the many peoples and governments of the empire, with the goal of building a professional administrative corps to elevate the condition of civil servants beyond the archaic steward. Upon the resignation of the 5th Secretary, Joseph Clement, the inherited Ministry of the Interior has built on the foundations and success of the original ministry. With this development, a plethora of new offices and divisions have been established, introducing a nascent era for the Ministry of the Interior. Under the Ministry of the Interior is the nascent Imperial Civil Service - an empire-wide government administered service designed to maintain and regulate the body of government within the Holy Orenian Empire. The disposition of a civil servant relies on the principles of meritocracy, efficiency, and a devotion to the Imperial State. The establishment of a bureaucracy will encourage individuals to participate in service to the government, a collaborative effort of providing a vital spoke of state - commerce and traffic. The Ministry of the Interior is divided into two sub-departments, these being the Home Office and the Municipalities Office. These will be described in further detail further within this gazette. As one of the preeminent Ministries of the Crown, there are several permanent positions beneath the charge of the Secretary of the Interior, these being mandated either by Acts of the Imperial Diet or by Executive Order. Due to this fact, staffing for the Ministry is always in high demand, and the probability of promotion is high. THE DUTIES OF THE MINISTRY OF THE INTERIOR Prescribed by the Oren Revised Code (CH 601.06), hereafter are the responsibilities of the Ministry. The duty to manage the lands of the Crown as well as all public lands, as both the representative of the government and highest administrator. The duty to commission and administer the construction of all public works, including infrastructure projects. The duty to oversee housing and property within the Crown’s dominions, including the capital city. The duty to manage policing, law enforcement and the safekeeping of the Emperor’s peace within the Crown’s direct dominions. The duty to oversee Imperial cities and all other direct dominions. The duty to administer the Imperial Everardine College, as honorary chancellor. The power to act with the Crown’s commission in the capital city, and to direct its governance in conjunction with the requisite elected bodies, which remain subservient to him. The power to contract architects, labourers and other aides in the completion of infrastructure projects. The power to temporarily manage the property of a deceased, absentee, or unworthy landowner without lawful heir, until the Council of State should choose to reappropriate this property. The power to staff his office, the Ministry of the Interior, in such a way as to provide assistance in his duties. DRESS CODE In order to foster a more professional steward and clerk corps with the eventual vision of a greater Imperial Civil Service, all non-Imperial State Army agents are expected to dress in a professional manner. To help facilitate for newer apprentices in the office, the Interior Ministry has commissioned the following attire for those that cannot afford to meet the standing dress code. All other Imperial Civil Service employees must still dress formally and professionally, adorning an identifiable gold badge. THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE INTERIOR The 6th Secretary of State for the Interior HE Jasper Carrington apt. 8th of Horen’s Calling, 1767 @EddyTheBrave The Secretary of the Interior heads the Ministry, holding sole executive power of its staffing and operation.

Every duty of the Secretary is outlined within the Oren Revised Code (CH 601), which has been written above. Given the number of these duties, the expansive responsibilities entailed, and the vastness of the lands being the direct dominion of the Crown, staffing of his office with competent bureaucrats is one of his most important roles.

  3. MUNICIPAL REFORMATION EDICT, 1769 7 H.F. INTRODUCTION: A few days after the recent approval of the livery legislation titled The Exclusive Control of Goods of the Livery Companies of Helena the Secretary of State for the Interior Jasper Carrington noticed the need of amending such, in order to balance the current monopolistic system for all the Livery Companies of Helena. In addition, the Secretary of the Interior has also noticed the need of abolishing the Office of the District Attorney and the Office of the Commissioner of Urban Planning of Helena. SECTION I: THE ORDERS OF CEASE & DESIST The Provision IV of the Exclusive Control of Goods of the Livery Companies of Helena of 1769 is hereby amended and to be read as follows: Each Livery Company shall have the right to to issue an Order of Cease & Desist to the properties (or to the merchants in case of the Honorable Company of Mercers) that sell goods to the public disobeying the Livery Company’s policy regarding their exclusive control over goods. The Livery Company’s policy must be established in their constitution document or in any other document they issue prior to the commission of the alleged infraction. An Order of Cease & Desist can additionally contain a sanction for the alleged infractor and must: I. State the infraction II. Give detail of the circumstances around the event III. State the amount of the sanction IV. State to whom the infraction must be paid to V. State the deadline that the individual has to pay the sanction VI. Inform the individual of their right to be civilly tried for the infraction All sanctions issued by Livery Companies that aren’t included in an Order of Cease & Desist are considered null and void. All Orders of Cease & Desist issued by Livery Companies that don't contain a deadline to indicate when the alleged infractor must have ceased and desisted in his illegal selling of goods are considered null and void. When the individual doesn’t cease & desist or pay the sanction if there's one before the deadline established in the Order of Cease & Desist then the City Clerk must immediately issue an eviction notice of three saints days to the property where the infractor was illegally selling goods to the public. When the individual receives an Order of Cease & Desist from the Honorable Company of Mercers (considering that it implies that the individual is a traveling or itinerant merchant or somebody selling goods on the streets as described in Provision V) and the individual doesn't cease and desist or doesn’t pay the sanction before the deadline then the Lord Mayor must issue a banishment for the individual from the Imperial City of Helena. SECTION II: THE HONORABLE COMPANY OF MERCERS A new Provision V is created in the Exclusive Control of Goods of the Livery Companies of Helena of 1769 to be read as follows: The Honorable Company of Mercers is granted exclusive control over ALL goods sold by traveling or itinerant merchants or by any individual selling goods to the public on the streets of Helena. The Honorable Company of Mercers is also granted exclusive control over ALL goods sold by auctions in Helena. The Honorable Company of Mercers is exempt of monopoly law when it sells goods to another Livery Company of Helena. This does not apply when the Honorable Company of Mercers sells goods to the public. SECTION III: CONFLICTS BETWEEN LIVERY COMPANIES A new Provision VI is created in the Exclusive Control of Goods of the Livery Companies of Helena of 1769 to be read as follows: In the case that one Livery Company has a conflict or disagreement with another Livery Company regarding aspects such as licenses, which are the exclusive control of goods of each livery company, or C&D Orders, the Lord Mayor of Helena in conjunction with the Vice Undersecretary for the Livery Companies of Helena shall summon both parties to arbitrate between them and cast a verdict that shall be binding for all parties. SECTION IV: ABOLITION OF THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY AND THE COMMISSIONER OF URBAN PLANNING The Section IV of the Helena Municipal Reformation Edict of 1752 is hereby repealed.

  7. Jasper’s eyes gleam as he reads the announcement, jovially folding the paper neatly. After a blissful moment of hesitation, he strolls to the church for an overdue confession.
  8. A Carrington courier drops a several signed letters to the Durant Group’s stall in Helena, though susceptible to the public. “I’ve been anxiously concerned for the day this concept re-emerges, and lo and behold, another stock exchange emerges. I myself have been interested in the idea, until researching past the surface level. Expert economists and wealthy private businesses, such as yours, have attempted this several times through history. The result however, was always a failure attributed due to impossible objectivity and regulation of stocks. Your proposal, like those in the past, will have stocks and shareholders’ mina dependent upon the interpretation of company representatives, who for obvious reasons, will have their own subjective interest. Even if the empire or crown itself decided to be the ones auditing and defining stock values instead of companies, for obvious reason there is much room for corruption or bias interest. From what I read, the Bank of Marin from Felsen was accountable for manipulating stocks and shares in a stock market they created. So it is concerning a company such as yours, the Durant Group, also oversees and values the stock of other competing companies. Please do not take offense as my criticism, for as a Helena business owner myself I’d love to help develop this idea further should you request my contributions. To condense, the reason why stock exchanges in history are impossible to objectively maintain and provide true accuracy, is because there has never been another impartial organization((like the S.E.C. irl) to dictate stock value and interpret the monetary progress of companies. It is impossible to avoid insider trading and corruption when a company creates and regulates a stock market for other companies.” Signed and sealed with a signature C&C wax logo

  11. Jasper Carrington in exile. I WRITE THIS TO YOU WITH a heavy heart. It is troubling to see the series of events that have unfolded within the jewel of the empire. For understandable reasons, it is even more troubling to see it attributed to me yet again. It is said that when a rock is turned in Helena, the first to blame is a Carrington. Firstly, despite the violent allegations, I give my due to the late pontiff - may he rest in peace. The only crime committed was my foolishness in believing this all would be properly dealt, but as you all could witness, it has declined to absolute chaos. I have since kept silence and assured others to do the same, thinking a lack of response to melodramatic claims would eventually subdue it. But a fervent bull cannot be easily subdued. I give my following narrative to dispel the harmful lies not only to my name, but to the city of Helena and the crown’s empire. I am writing this as a public statement, because there is a substantial chance my words will be distorted upon the trial’s day. Allow this to be definitive evidence that these are my words, and will stand true in the coming trial. Within the events of the pontiff’s demise, I have been nothing but transparent and cooperative as anyone reading can attest. The truth to what occurred: To provide some contextual information, a branch of the Carrington company was publicly hired by the Pontiff and his associates for construction, installing an extension next to the church a saint’s week prior to his death. I should note, we were paid the full amount without any issue, the transaction was smooth and amicable. I say this, to disway any notion that the transaction didn’t go well and dispelling any fabrication that this gave motive to harming the Pontiff. I have the signed contract of the construction project, and I suggest searching the church’s records and mine for when the full promised payment was given - which was far before his death. As I told everyone including witnessing investigators, I did have a meeting with the pontiff prior to his death. Mind you it was not ‘ten saint minutes’ as the clergy claims, it was about half a saint’s hour prior. I was concluding the finishing touches of the construction project and leaving it permanently exiting the church, and in the same moment the Pontiff passed by its entrance. With him was Cardinal Arthur and the priest Boniface. Seeing the opportunity, I said publicly outside with all of the Helena traffic to hear, that I asked to see if the Pontiff wanted the garden’s floral decor to be added or not. Mind you, we have made several exchanges about the construction project, discussing the trivial details and additions. This was no exception, as Pontian and I have grown to become informal and friendly, sharing similar dispositions and interests and sharing many conversations. From there, he exclaimed that he wanted to see for himself. It was from there that we walked inside towards the garden, though Arthur and Boniface were idly walking with us. We have discussed our mutual satisfaction with the construction project, and his thoughts of the floral decor not being a necessity. I recall seeing Arthur and Boniface walking around the garden’s peripherals, though did not make a questioning note of it for obvious reasons. After this very brief exchange, I subsequently left thinking of the rest of my day’s agenda, with the clergymen still lingering in the church. When I heard the news about thirty minutes later, I was sitting comfortably in my office at the Carrington Shop in Helena, surrounded by two of my secretaries. One who has informed me only mere moments after the assassination was uncovered, to which we exchanged thoughtful words about him, and where I even had the secretary purchase a red and white boquet from Mary’s floral shop, which I’m sure the shopkeeper can attest. Hours prior to this, all of the employees can also witness I was at the shop’s office since the morning, long before the pontiff’s unfortunate demise. The only time I left was to finalize the construction project aforementioned It was shortly after my discussion with the secretaries that an ISA investigator, Rylan Swint, calmly asked me to follow him to the church to answer questions. I arrived at the church, to where I was bombarded with verbal attacks from clergymen, already throwing accusations that I was behind this incident. Rylan Swint led by through the church, asking me if I was the one who destroyed the entrance apparently used to break into the extension. I responded with ‘No, that was long destroyed by what I remembered to be church members, at the inception of the construction project.’ I assumed it was to allow the construction workers accessibility to the site. Rylan Swint, satisfied with the answer, left. From there, the clergymen halted me within the church and demanded answers. There was a guard there, to my recollection it was Sir Alexander Pruvia who witnessed it. The clergymen aggressively interrogated me, cutting me off several times and attempting to manipulate my answers and what I stated above. Despite this, I remained a calm demeanor, answering cooperatively despite the insulting connotation, for I was sympathetic that their anger was warranted considering their very Pontiff died - I would feel just as enraged in their position. The dubious arrest: On the same day, as evening engulfed the city of Helena, I was still in my office. Already answering the church’s and ISA aforementioned questioning, I resumed through my secretaries’ provided agenda. At this time I was meeting with a Hou-zi and a blonde man about employment opportunities regarding the Carrington tavern’s new section. Attending the meeting was the company lawyer Friedrich Stafyr, along with the secretary Alpha. Amidst this, we were abruptly interrupted by a reckless Solicitor-General, Joseph Adler. With him was guardsman Dane and Aplex. The trio disgustingly barged in, harassing my secretary with demanding entry, forcefully pushing past their way within the meeting. Here was where Mr. Adler wrothfully charged me with the murder of the High Pontiff. From there, I was viciously apprehended and cuffed despite my cooperation, being dragged out. During this, Joseph Adler roughly attacked the witnessing secretary, ripping one of our many agendas in attempt of arresting her. It should be a disclaimer that this one secretary is a 13 year old urchin, confused as to why she was being violently harassed. It was then that Dane savagely attacked my face, grinding it against the office wall for verbally protesting this act against the little girl. Dazed, I was then taken into custody and violently thrown into the cell. Then they subsequently left, to arrest the secretary and lawyer. The justified evasion: During this chaotic and overly brutal arrest, I was wondering why such a small force of ISA men were being so disturbingly violent. There was a connotation that this arrest was questionably rushed, and seemingly discrete. Why was it so exceptionally violent, considering the ISA’s famous professionality and discipline? Why was it enacted so rushed, considering such a charge would normally be treated with meticulous caution? These questions would soon be answered, as I momentarily sat in the cell. Mere moments after they left to arrest those in the office room, my cell door was unlocked by an unrecognizable guard. As the door creaked open, he stood in his uniform and face on the other side. “Mr. Carrington, you must leave - now.” the shadow figure hushed. Shaking my head, I responded that I refuse to leave. I knew I was in the right, considering I was innocent and with no evidence correlating me with the accused crime. I had absolute confidence and faith the judiciary system would see to it that this is properly handed, as has every incident involving an accused Carrington. “This is different, Jasper. They do not want a trial, they will kill you in these cells.” the same figure now exclaimed. Processing this immediate threat to my life, he came in and rushed me out while occasionally looking over his shoulder. Cautiously, the unknown figure discretely smuggled me out of the prison, all the way to Helena’s outside entrance. Without saying any additional words, he left me stranded and still cuffed. From there, I evaded the manhunt and made it to one of the many foreign safehouses. Who framed Jasper? As I sit here writing this, I have had plenty of time to think despite the overwhelming paranoia and constant evasion of amateur bounty hunters. I can confirm that there is a larger conspiracy here, pinning me as a scapegoat. Weaponizing my position, several people seek my death, along with the pontiff. I will not act like the clergymen and be rash by accusing every member of Oren as stated in ‘The Carrington Report’. There was accused the entire military, every politician, and all figures of society as assailants in this heinous crime. This absurd accusation has even dubbed it the Rhenyari Conspiracy, giving the connotation that this is even attributed to an entire race of Oreners. The only agreement I can make is that there is a mysterious conspiracy at hand. One that I admittingly cannot unravel myself. I will not pretend to know why or what is occuring, and why I am being framed for this act. There is a lingering wickedness in Oren, a sinister plot that is surfacing that has strung the common men into believing this facade with a narrative. I ask citizens to heed to their own conclusions, and question all parties amongst them. Who is Jasper? Firstly, I want the passionate citizens of Helena to consider all that is at hand here. Realize what is being disturbingly told to you about an honorable man. As every citizen can attest, I have done nothing but work my entire life to better the empire. Immigrating from isles of the east, I swiftly joined the fledgling ISA and led a group of the now few Gunners in the war. Our brigade led the siege against the orcs, our high caliber decimating the enemies with our ability to wield artillery. Additionally, honored for this merit, I have since led the ISA 1st brigade for four saint’s months during the following war against the AIS. With the aid of the amazing members of our military, we have prevailed and crushed our enemies. Any veteran, any participants of this gruesome war, can remember my contributions along with my fellow men in prevailing this war and the horrifying atrocities within it. Afterwards, forming the Carrington Company with the senior executives, we have made tremendous strides. Aiding a declining Helena, we have revived and restored the capital of humanity. Introducing a bustling economy, we have facilitated the immigration of an uncountable amount of refugees into Helena. We have funded every ambitious merchant despite their lack of experience, into having their own shop and dreams fulfilled. A fine example of this is Jason and his bakery, along with Nadya’s smithy, and so on. We have constructed and paid for several amenities never before seen in Helena. A public barn, a public farm, a public mine, and welcoming free houses. We have supplied the majority of the military’s recruits equipment, supplied the majority of the construction of the city’s restoration with workers and material, and have filled the city/crown’s vault tremendously. And this is all only in Helena, excluding the success in other cities. Our contribution, despite the countless perils and hurdles thrown at us, is unimaginable. I only say of my feats to explain what is at stake here. With this said, I am sure several enemies and dark forces want this all to end. Should the Carringtons be chased from the city, it is hard to comprehend how much of the empire’s success will be irreversibly damaged. I have done nothing but try to better my fellow man, as all who know me or a Carrington can confirm. This is why I am devastated at what has happened. What is to happen: I cannot sit in seclusion while this chaos escalates. While I fear for my safety, I will be returning to Helena’s imprisonment despite these false charges and possibility of my imminent death. Peace is what I strive for, and I know very well I am guilty of nothing except a justified escape. Should I be killed upon my return whether by rogue agents in a cell or by a dubious and questionable trial, let it be known that I walk into this willingly. I hope that the arbiters of justice will objectively bring a just trial, one without influence from subjective and emotional outside claims. I ask they question why I would kill and burn the pontiff after such a mutually successful project, and why I would do it in broad daylight with several witnesses and public knowledge of this meeting. I ask they try to empathize with the rationale of my escape from the prison. I ask they seriously consider not adhering to the dramatic lies proclaimed, and to consider all those that would have motive for the pontff’s assassination - recognizing that I would be the last to have any. With this, I thank the reader for taking the time to read the candid truth. Should I die for a crime I did not commit, I want those to remember not defamation and lies, but to remember the contribution we have all collectively made and are still making in building what is before us - and how hysteria makes scapegoats of good men. Nothing above the empire. Signed by Jasper Carrington

  14. The Helena Union of Labour A glimpse of the union led strikers, moments before extreme terrorists separately engaged in a clash with the 1st Brigade, subsequently escalating the peaceful protest to a riot. 13th of Sun’s Smile, 1751 THE TIMES WE LIVE IN are of historic importance, a rare moment where we should stop to contemplate and analyze. It is common knowledge that less than a saint’s week prior, fires erupted and engulfed the slums. A despicable act of cowardice, only enacted by a misguided band of terrorists. And again, during a peaceful demonstration enacted by disheartened strikers pleading for better conditions, these same Cheloveks have weaponized this peaceful protest and initiated violence. Their goal was to pathetically protest the quickly evolving state of the troddened worker, however this was disgustingly conducted. Further evidence, as they’ve proclaimed and publicly stated, they are not affiliated with the strikers. Let it be recognized, that the benevolent union workers actively condemns their actions, and works to root out their threatening presence. Yet, the problem remains. As the city modernizes, the bureaucratic machine abandons its working man. The Helena mines, being the only mines in Arcas to be tolled, requires permits of 200 mina biannually through a discrete, heavily regulated process that could take years to attain. Prior to the fires, the slums already neglected since the dawn of Helena, has seen little residents aside from the occasional squatter already scrutinized for his inability to live. These slum homes can average to a 400 mina downpayment, with a 150 annual tax. However the mayor’s replaced ‘affordable’ housing will be at a 200 mina downpayment, with 50 mina annual tax. To condense, a fresh person newly arrived to the land of Arcas, specifically Helena, will approach with a request of shelter and work. If he takes the humble and dignified trade of a miner, he will be told that with his empty pockets, he will have to accrue 200 mina for a temporary permit to mine. He will also be told the most affordable form of housing, one that will probably be a 3x3m room in dubious conditions, will cost him an additional 200 mina aside from the tax. With no tools, shelter, instructions, nor knowledge of this land, he will simply leave - siphoned to the many other dozen cities prevalent with better opportunity. Or worse, he will leave the land overall due to his unpleasant welcoming to the capital of humanity. We ask the citizens to examine the community and culture widespread in their city. One of bustling activity, however it’s insular and foundationally built only for the wealthy. The citizens are the same faces and families, those who have had advantageous experience and wealth enough to comfortably live in the opulent conditions the city has adapted. This culture dissuades the immigration of new and fresh persons, which should always be one of the top priorities of the state. Union Description The union stands as the primary and official representative of the collective Helena worker in opposition to the bureaucracy, expressing the imperative need of the laborer who strives only for the worker’s sanctity for a role in the city. The union will facilitate and guarantee the benefits are provided to the worker, and for this gridlocked bureaucracy to appeal to every laborer’s immediate need. This will be smoothly secured, or the politicians will risk their candidacy for an election by the mass displayed above. No longer will fledgling workers have to beg by posting petition pamphlets requesting barns or the like. The union will secure every citizen that steps in the gates with a job of their choosing, food, and shelter. This is the basic minimum that can be given for a worker, while the city will in return have tax income, labourers, votes, and citizens. One of the only few initiatives the political state has taken to display jobs is a neglected and seldom updated Imperial Employment Opportunity Act, 1743, introduced by an alienated group of senators to solve this crisis. While a noble attempt, it’s nearly laughable to assume every new approaching person will read these discrete and subtle edicts amidst dozens of passed Acts just to find a job. Secondly, the union will ensure that all the rights listed under the Workers’ Rights Bill, 1751, will be enacted, regardless of the senators’ reluctance to passing this bill. Two senate sessions within a year have been practiced to pass this bill, and both sessions have tabled it. The union members will ensure that these rights will be exercised regardless of the politicians’ decision. Additionally, the union will ensure with absolute guarantee this senate will rectify their ignorance, and swiftly pass this bill or risk facing the mass’ voting power. The union will collaborate with local companies to have a constant variety of job openings and other benefits not only be steadily available, but to be continuously displayed in the city - person to person. Location The specific address is under construction, however the main office will be at the city square of Helena, unmissable to the new approacher’s eye. This office will have displayed all the union leaders, job openings, contact information, and membership instructions. The many union representatives around will attend and aid any newcomer for all their necessities and grant them immediate membership. Membership Benefits Guaranteed housing with no down payment for as long as necessary, with only a 50 mina annual tax. If struggling to pay this manageable tax, the tenant will be immediately approved and covered at their local union office. Guaranteed jobs constantly available by the many local companies and political offices. The hours and salaries are always negotiable to the worker’s discretion. Legal advice, consultation, representation, and associated fees covered by the top lawyer firms in the empire should the worker have any court violating their rights as a laborer. Any work fees sanctioned by the state to carry out your work will be immediately covered. This includes the 200 biannual tax imposed on the mine, and any similar inconveniences. Guaranteed health services and free or subsidized care at any medical clinic. The member will be allocated to their closest physician if not already assigned one. Any additional aid deemed necessary to facilitate an immigrant’s entrance into the city, and guarantee their prosperity and success. Union politicians will have the endorsement and support of our members through lobbying policies. Thank You A moment of appreciation to every individual new laborer, who has collectively mulled through the arduous system who has neglected them. We’d like to thank Carrington & Co. for funding the endeavors of almost every single new immigrant, welcoming with open arms and guaranteeing each of these benefits long before any mentions of a union. Additionally, a thank you to the many politicians willing to adhere to the union’s policies. Signed by, The Carrington Brothers
