  1. Dissolution of the 17th Imperial Diet 3rd of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1780 His Imperial Majesty does see fit to dissolve the seventeenth Imperial Diet, running from 1774 through 1780 subsequent to the elections of 1774. With this dissolution, His Imperial Majesty commands the members of the seventeenth Imperial Diet to return home to their constituents until such time as the assembly is summoned to sit again. Signed and Issued, Peter III, by the grace of GOD Holy Orenian Emperor, forever August, King of Renatus, Curon, Kaedrin, Salvus, and Seventis, Prince of Malinor, Grand Duke of Ves, Duke of Lorraine, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera.
  2. 2nd of Harren’s Folly, 1778 God with you, James, my only brother: you are to me as Clement. Never has one ignored the other’s counsel, and I shall not break now this sacred fraternity. Yet, you write such biting words when you know my ear is always yours. Never have I acted under any impairment, I assure you, so to that end I return my word with a calm heart. The wicked will find appropriate atonement, or they will find eternal punishment. This is merely by the rule of God, and is not a matter demanding our intervention. That I trust from you, and for that I trust to you. As to the war itself, James: by Providence, we have already threshed the wheat from the chaff. What is left but to turn in for the millstone? Understand though, brother, that even if we succeed in vanquishing the infernal from the lands of the ungrateful and mercurial, we will find ourselves in no better standing. But do not despair, for I have formed the Garden ahead in the horizon of my dreams. Never am I inattentive of the strings from Heaven. No son will be left behind, and neither will my brother be. - Peter

  5. A Sergeant’s Smile 15th of Sigismund’s End, 1776 Sgt. Hinweiser of the 1st Brigade with Lieutenant Reine of the 4th. Advance, thrust, and chop; fall back under the cover of horse and shot. This is the tide of modern combat, a flow which Sergeant Hinweiser had been swept to and fro by for nearly three decades. As he stood proud before his section of eager halberdiers, the old trooper thought back on his beginning all those years ago. James Hinweiser was grown in the Emperor’s own country: the hinterlands of Helena which had been ravaged during the War of Two Emperors. With agriculture and industry yet to fully recover, and the threat of the Nordling coalition making investment from urban centers unlikely, Hinweiser was a boy without much future ahead of him. In those times after the fall of Renatus, the country was left without an army. The Lord Protector had established a professional army under General de Ruyter, the first of his era, but greatness would be long to come. The Imperial army at that time was equipped and trained for the warfare of centuries past, a matter which stung sorely when tested in the lighting-fast, infantry-centric battles of the present. Consecutive disastrous defeats bloodied the country, but for the red flag which had united and restored the ancient Empire, the nation’s pride would never be stained. The Emperor, working with his officers who would later become great leaders and statesmen, enacted modernizing reforms based on the Gunners’ model: a brigade of tireless, psychotically brave engineers which had done much from the interregnum until now. Captain Peter Baldwin d’Arkent of the 3rd Brigade commanding Imperial cavalry. When James Hinweiser was issued his red coat and lobster-tailed helm, Colonel Darius Sabari was hard at work with the figures who lead today, such as General Alren de Nurem and Lieutenant Colonel Peter d’Arkent. The Imperial State Army was gradually growing in size as its discipline increased, modern tactics and logistics proving resoundingly effective on the field. The victories at Reza had greatly augmented national morale, and Hinweiser served diligently with a proud fire in his heart. Whether it was digging, hauling, marching, or fighting - no matter how his blood or sweat flowed - Hinweiser’s pride for his country, like his red coat, would never show stains. The years went on, and James Hinweiser’s efforts eventually found him in charge of a division of the Emperor’s infantry. Though he was never cut out to be the sort of august figure who would rise to the great offices of war and state, Hinweiser found great purpose in his post as an Imperial sergeant. He was becoming too old and worn to push himself as hard as he did in his youth, but Sergeant Hinweiser maintained himself always as a stalwart example of the model Imperial infantryman. His service, that of halberd in hand against beast and brigand, was vital to the survival of the glorious modern state. Hinweiser felt that importance well in his every action, never faltering for a moment. It was the first winter of the current war, a retaliation prompted by some reject of the modern era’s assassinations of various Orenian nobles, and the old Sergeant performed his job as he ever did. Advance, thrust; chop. Fall back to let the enemy wither under fire. In this sweeping tide, Sergeant Hinweiser practically decapitated some renegade fleeing from his division with a wide slash of his halberd. Bending down to retrieve a curiously gleaming sword the enemy had dropped, Hinweiser felt a familiar ache in his back. Leaving the spoils to another, the sergeant stood up straight with a wistful gaze over the retreating enemy, past their territory, and into the blue sky. That pain in his back reminded James Hinweiser of his greying age, the country he had toiled to support, and his family well at home. In his head, the old man resolved to relax himself; to live safely and peacefully in respect of all these things. After seeing this war through, of course, Hinweiser thought with a smile.

  8. Operation Enduring Freedom 4th of Tobias’ Bounty, 1775 TO THE CITY OF SUTICA, Following the legitimate Sutican government’s acceptance of our private and polite requests, Mister Corwin Alstreim has illegally sacked these justice-minded statesmen and replaced each with sycophants in an act of objective tyranny. We wish for all subjects of the Orenian Crown and residents of the City of Sutica to understand the trouble at hand, and to endeavor through dutiful action and educated discussion, reach this civil and peaceful solution. Even given his historied efforts to topple the Holy Orenian Empire as a soldier and commander, Mister Corwin Alstreim, by Our august graciousness, was given amnesty to find peace and repentance wherever his heart would lead him. The man’s heart, however, remains fixated on the destruction of the Orenian state and the violent death of the Imperial monarch’s relations. Not but a week after Mister Corwin Alstreim’s assumption of office in Sutica, a package arrived by post, addressed to the Lord Selm, John d’Arkent, from Mister Alstreim’s office. Contained was a collection of effigies meant to threaten violence against the Orenian people and land, demonstrating a continued commitment to his cause predicating on war against the Empire and murder of Our subjects. Mister Corwin Alstreim, once a commander of the now defunct A.I.S. coalition purposed to destroy the Holy Orenian Empire, his membership and intent revealed by Mister Alstreim’s former colleague Ri’Haskir, evidently maintains this lost cause by his words and actions. Profoundly more troubling is the disappearance and murder of both Lady Henrietta Alstion and Master Peter Amadeus, noble relations by blood to the Imperial monarch. This woman of prestige, wife of the Count Pompourelia and mother of young Peter Amadeus, went missing in the City of Sutica a number of years ago. According to a close friend of Peter, the young man set off on a personally important quest in Sutica just prior to his identical disappearance: to find answers for his dead mother. Following this second vanishment, the Crown’s foreign secretary visited Sutica to receive an explanation. The captain of the guard in Sutica spoke openly of the matter pertaining to Henrietta Alstion, claiming she was “mercy-killed” by Corwin and his personal soldiers. Given that the Lady Pompourelia’s physician’s records showed her to have no notable problems, We can determine, corroborated by Mister Corwin Alstreim’s past membership and current behavior, that this was a demonstration of the A.I.S. coalition’s evil justification of murder: that those born in or faithful to Oren must be killed. Soon after, a mentor to the disappeared Peter Amadeus ventured to Sutica to engage in her own inquiries. Happening upon Mister Corwin Alstreim in person, she was told with a laugh that the young nobleman may have died, but it did not matter to Mister Alstreim - and by the foreign secretary’s return, Mister Alstreim had admitted additionally to this murder. We can only hope that it matters to the people of the City of Sutica, however, for it is evident by his own boasting that Corwin Alstreim, with his demonstrated intent to murder and destroy Orenian people and land, is responsible for these deaths, and intends to abuse the haven of Sutica to perpetrate cold blooded violence in the future. To prevent his further murders of Orenian subjects, most explicitly the Imperial monarch’s blood relations, and to prevent his exploitation of Sutica’s people in violence against the world, We ask for the surrender of Mister Corwin Alstreim and his personal soldiers to Imperial authorities. For the sake of Sutica and Oren both, do oblige, lest he must be taken by force. May God Grant You Wisdom, Peter III, by the grace of GOD Holy Orenian Emperor, forever August, King of Renatus, Curon, Kaedrin, Salvus, and Seventis, Prince of Malinor, Grand Duke of Ves, Duke of Lorraine and Roden, Baron of Sedan, Vitzburg, and Sedai, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera.

With this dissolution, His Imperial Majesty commands the members of the sixteenth Imperial Diet to return home to their constituents until such time as the assembly is summoned to sit again.

  13. AMENDMENTS TO THE EDICT OF REFORM, 1773 To Our Beloved Subjects, Upon the recommendations of Presidents May and Stafyr, the Crown has deemed fit to reform the constitution of the House of Commons, making adjustments to the total number of seats as well as the electoral process. Delivered at Novellen, 15th of Harren’s Folly, 1773. AMENDMENTS TO SECTION I: THE HOUSE OF COMMONS The House of Commons shall be comprised of twelve seats to be competed for in national elections when summoned by the Crown. Imperial subjects will cast ballots for exactly three candidates of their choosing, after which seats will be allocated based on the percentage of the overall vote each candidate receives. Prior to national elections, the Ministry of Civil Affairs shall accept applications for candidacy within a period lasting no less than three months. Any Imperial subject over the age of thirty and registered with the Imperial census shall be permitted to apply to said candidacy, and if reviewed and approved they shall appear as candidates on the ballot. Any subject, regardless of age, who has served in the Commons prior to the promulgation of this amendment is eligible for candidacy. Legal recognition of the current political factions, the Josephites and the Everardines, shall exist independently from the electoral process. Recognition of a candidate’s affiliation with said factions will not be provided on the ballot. Necessarily, Members of the House of Commons will henceforth be allowed to sit independently of either faction while on the bench. Any part of the Edict of Reform not explicitly amended by this amendment edict shall be construed as remaining in effect.
  14. On the Legal Procedure Bill of 1772, the Crown grants assent. On the Evictions Bill of 1772, the Crown grants assent. On the Voter Protection Bill of 1772, the Crown withholds assent pending fundamental changes to Section I. Any subject of the Empire shall be allowed free discourse sparing sedition, blasphemy; etcetera. However, it is powers and privileges afforded by government offices municipal, provincial, or Imperial that must forbidden leverage in political action.
  15. THE INVESTITURE OF THE COUNT OF LEUVEN 14th of the Sun’s Smile, 1772 With the welcome news that all resistance had been defeated or naturally withered in the occupied Leuven region, the settlements of the Holy Orenian Empire erupted into a celebratory mood the likes of which had not been seen since the end of that great war over a decade past. From Helena to Johnstown, from Reza to Owynsburg, and even within the glade of Tor Eldar and the far-flung freeholds of the Northeast, common people, aristocrats and nonhumans alike toasted the occasion in jubilation. The Great Deceiver’s mistress, Helen Stiborovich, had passed from this world in a whimper, and with that the last vestiges of rebellion and foreign incursion in the Empire. Years ago, the late Count of Leuven, Conrad de Falstaff, had picked the wrong side in one of the bloodiest civil wars humanity had ever seen. By supporting the failed rebel Joseph of Marna, he had lost his lands, which were promptly partitioned from the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska into the rump state of Rubern, a notorious hive of bandits and reprobates. That was the War of Two Emperors, and over the fifty years since the den of scoundrels had changed hands nearly ten score. From Rhenyari emigres, to dissident Haeseni, to neo-Savoyards, and finally to slovenly Stiborovich herself, all had endeavoured to secure a foothold there - yet always had their fields run fallow. Stubbornly, however, and with the relentless spite the region would come to be known for, none acceded to requests for peace or reassimilation from the Empire that surrounded them. It was in the Basilica of the Final Revelation that this wicked cycle would be put to an end. Armande de Falstaff, the successor to a father he had never known, knelt staidly before the rostrum. Resplendent in a full-bottomed white periwig and immaculate knee-breeches, the heir to Leuven paid homage before his sovereign, Peter the Third. Their predecessors had known each other. After all, it was against His Imperial Majesty’s father the old Count had taken up arms in the first place. “I swear,” began the rebel’s son, the lost baby that had now grown to his middle ages, “On my faith and family, that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to His Imperial Majesty Peter the Third and his lawful heirs and successors without deceit. So help me GOD.” The hoary old ruler inspected Armande with his single grey eye, outstretching a hand bedecked in frilled sleeves for him to kiss. After he had done that, the bewigged monarch hovered his ceremonial sword over either of the now peer’s shoulders. From behind Armande came his twin sons Albert and Lysander, who ritualistically invested him with the ermine robes traditional to the comital rank, draping the fur over their father’s shoulders. It was a good showing from a pair of ten year olds. “Rise, then, Armande de Falstaff, as Count of Leuven restored,” ordered the Holy Orenian Emperor. Armande de Falstaff, invested in traditional garb as Count of Leuven in 1772. An accompanying document would be issued following the investiture, gazetted throughout the Empire to give notice of the rite. IMPERIAL LETTERS FOR THE COUNTY OF LEUVEN, 1772 TO OUR BELOVED SUBJECTS, It has pleased the Imperial Throne to reward the service of Our leal subject, Armande de Falstaff, with official verification of their tenure in fealty to the Holy Orenian Empire. Accordingly, with this grace of God and the counsel of Our court, we do invest Armande de Falstaff as the Count of Leuven, a role they as peers of the Holy Orenian Empire shall hold in trust to Our throne for the duration of their loyal service. They are enjoined to maintain the law of Our realm, to abide peacefully by Our rule, and to rise to Our defense when necessary. In return, as a sign of Our August graciousness, we do privilege their head to collect rents on their estates and holdings, to join His Imperial Majesty’s court, and to conduct themself with a noble grace befitting their rank. HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY Peter III, by the grace of GOD Holy Orenian Emperor, forever August, King of Renatus, Curon, Kaedrin, Salvus, and Seventis, Prince of Malinor, Grand Duke of Ves, Duke of Lorraine and Roden, Baron of Sedan, Vitzburg, and Sedai, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera.
