  9. On the Helena Fires: Relief from the Crown 12th of Owyn’s Flame, 1750 A drawing of the city’s east area. TO OUR JEWEL OF HUMANITY, HELENA, The fires which have impacted our fair Helena this week are not only a tragedy, but an attack on our very livelihood by the enemy. A small group of rebels, highly suspected of having support from the Alliance of Independent States, are the arsonists responsible for the fires. They are known to hide outside the reaches of any civilization - in the far western mountains and among Orcs - yet take advantage of our hospitality by living among us, enjoying the fruits of our labor while they plot terrible acts. The most vulnerable district of our Helena, Cotter’s Court, was their first target. Several homes outside the inner wall were simultaneously set ablaze, ruling out the possibility of an accident. As the fire quickly spread, many became trapped or incapacitated, their lives cruelly put in danger by the rebels. Thankfully, His Imperial Majesty and his officers, soldiers, and numerous brave volunteers were able to evacuate a great majority of the population. We honor those who lost their lives in the selfless rescue of our poorest fellows. The rebels’ second target was the center of Orenian justice and legislature, Varoche Hall. The supposed leader of this small group made an appearance, attempting to brutally disfigure and kill Vivaca Rutledge, a senator from Curon, and setting fire to the building. Upon being quickly surrounded by our Empire’s gallant troopers, the rebel leader immolated himself in a drug-addled frenzy so to avoid arrest and justice. Regardless, he now suffers eternally separate from the grace of God. However, just as the Bloodied Orphan, the very embodiment of our City, lives on through war and abandonment, we too must live on. We must not let these assaults on our dignity and freedom end us. To this end, the Imperial Crown offers relief to those who lost their homes and livelihoods in the fires: 500 Minas receivable in full and at once, A chest of imperishable and worthwhile foodstuffs, Temporary shelter in the Sasha de Vitus Freedom Park, Guaranteed housing free of purchase in the rebuilt Cotter’s Court. The affected district will be cleared and reconstructed to the standards of the city square, following modern architectural and engineering standards so to make the district resistant to all blights including fire. A drawing of the west district’s new buildings. This We Proclaim, HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Peter III Anthony, Holy Orenian Emperor, King of Renatus, Curon, Kaedrin, Salvus, and Seventis, Grand Duke of Ves, Duke of Lorraine and Roden, Baron of Sedan, Vitzburg, and Sedai, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera.
  10. THE HONOURS OF 1750 17th of Owyn’s Flame, 1750 With the recent consolidation of Imperial orders of chivalry, it is the desire of the Basrid Ministry, in honour of the half-century of 1750, to fill the ranks of these orders by rewarding those who deserve awards in their service to the Empire. As such, the Ministry has undertaken its constitutional role and advised the Emperor of candidates for recipients of these awards. These awards and honours for service are published in this gazette. Recipients come from many walks of life and have undertaken patriotic and exemplary service in a variety of fields, as determined by the relevant provisions of each separate order, and this justifies recognition from the Emperor and the country which they have served. In order to accept these honours and employ the requisite styles, a recipient must swear a generic oath of fealty below to His Imperial Majesty so as to ensure that he is an Imperial subject and thus entitled to employ the honours. “I swear to be true to the Emperor and the realm and not to maintain silence about any evil that I may know which is being contemplated against them. I swear to work tirelessly to the betterment of the Empire and the Orenian people that comprise it. I swear also not to eat or drink with traitors and not to have anything in common with them, and always to defend the honor of the gentlemen I serve. This I swear by the Holy Scrolls.” A failure to undertake this oath denotes an effective refusal of the honour bestowed upon the recipient, preventing them from employing the associated styling of ‘sir’ and any relevant postnominal, as only affirmed Imperial subjects may employ these styles. The gazette for the honours of 1750 is below. THE MOST EXCELLENT PETRINE ORDER OF HUMANITY AND THE EMPIRE Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Petrine Order of Humanity and the Empire (KCHE) John d’Arkent, hereafter oathing to be styled Sir John d’Arkent KCHE For years of political service as chief of the Selm Ministry, in addition to service with the judiciary and for his formative role in the Empire’s early years.

  12. IMPERIAL ORDERS OF CHIVALRY With the coming of the year 1750, the thirteenth year of rule of His Imperial Majesty the Holy Orenian Emperor, Peter the Third, it is the wish of the Crown to formalize and reconstitute the official orders of chivalry within the Holy Orenian Empire. These orders of chivalry, membership of the confraternity therein which shall serve as an award for exemplary service to the Empire, have hence been decreed with considerable consideration for past institutions of history while also a desire for modernization. To be a knight of a chivalric order is to be a member of a brotherhood, to which all fellow members are owed exceptionally respectful and honourable treatment. They operate on the basis of an unwritten code of chivalry, whereby they are expected to act in a courtly and chivalrous fashion, remaining loyal to their sovereign and the principles of knighthood. One may be a member of more than one of these orders simultaneously, however, the order of precedence to these awards must be respected. A directory of membership for all orders, living and deceased, shall be maintained by the Emperor’s personal secretaries. All three reconstituted Imperial orders entitle their recipients, so long as they are human, Imperial subjects and have sworn an oath of allegiance to the Emperor, to a knighthood, with which they may prefix their name ‘Sir’. They are also entitled to associated postnominals after their name. These orders of chivalry typically have four levels, each denoting their own postnominal depending on the particular award. Each of these levels also denote the physical possession of a medal, which may be worn by any recipient at any time. Grand Master A special and nominal title held in perpetuity by the sovereign, who never employs postnominals. Grand Cross The highest rank of a particular order, of which there may be a maximum of two living recipients per order. Knight Commander The middling rank of a particular order, of which there may be a maximum of three living recipients per order. Knight The lowest and most common rank of a particular order, of which there is no particular limit to recipients. The three reconstituted Imperial orders of chivalry, ranked in precedence, are as follows: The Most Excellent Petrine Order of Humanity and the Empire RIBBON: Purple and white ESTABLISHED: 1750 FOUNDER: Emperor Peter III The most prestigious order of chivalry within the Holy Orenian Empire, the Most Excellent Order of Humanity and the Empire, known in shorthand simply as the Order of Humanity, the Petrine Order or the Order of Man, shall serve as the highest honour within the Empire. It is awarded for actions both military and civil for outstanding war service, or outstanding civil service, or otherwise ‘exemplary acts of courage and diligence in pursuit of pan-humanist ideals’. Investiture within the order, at any level, entails admission to knighthood and the right to bear the title of ‘sir’ before a name. This applies only to subjects of the Emperor, with foreign recipients of this award being unable to employ this prefix. The Emperor is sovereign and Grand Master of the Order, and controls investiture within its ranks. RANKS AND POSTNOMINALS: Grand Cross (GCHE) Knight Commander (KCHE) Knight (KHE) GAZETTE: (Left to right: knight, knight commander, grand cross) The Most Ancient and Most Noble Imperial Order of the Lion RIBBON: Black ESTABLISHED: 1374 FOUNDER: Emperor Godfrey I The Order of the Lion, established c. 1374 by the Prophet Godfrey during his time as Holy Orenian Emperor, originally served as a military order in his service. Since that time, it has transitioned into an award for exceptional valour. This is a most highly coveted decoration, which may be conferred upon officers and enlisted men of all the forces in the Empire who qualify by outstanding gallantry and devotion to their duty and country in the face of the enemy. This order is the sole award that may be awarded posthumously, as those actions that may warrant conferral are often fatal. Investiture within the order, at any level, entails admission to knighthood and the right to bear the title of ‘sir’ before a name. This applies only to subjects of the Emperor. The Emperor is sovereign and Grand Master of the Order, and controls investiture within its ranks. RANKS AND POSTNOMINALS: Grand Cross (GCL) Knight Commander (KCL) Knight (KL) GAZETTE: (Left to right: knight, knight commander, grand cross) The Imperial Order of Merit RIBBON: Purple and black ESTABLISHED: 1458 FOUNDER: Emperor Peter I The Imperial Order of Merit was founded in 1458 by Emperor Peter I as the monarch’s personal reward for the ‘specially eminent service’ and ‘unusually deserving achievement’ in science, music, politics, law, art, literature or otherwise ‘for the promotion of culture’. Since that time, it has evolved continuously over the past three centuries, being variously reconstituted and abolished by successive monarchs. With a revival in the 18th century, the Imperial Order of Merit has been refocused as one of the three official orders of chivalry within the Holy Orenian Empire. In this capacity, the Imperial Order of Merit is widely perceived as focusing on the civilian sphere of Imperial pursuits, however, members of the armed forces may also qualify to investiture within its ranks in special circumstances. Investiture within the order, at any level, entails admission to knighthood and the right to bear the title of ‘sir’ before a name. This applies only to subjects of the Emperor. The Emperor is sovereign and Grand Master of the Order, and controls investiture within its ranks. RANKS AND POSTNOMINALS: Grand Cross (GCM) Knight Commander (KCM) Knight (KM) GAZETTE: (Left to right: knight, knight commander, grand cross) Foreign Awards The Holy Orenian Empire recognises a number of technically foreign orders and awards which also denote post-nominals, such as the Church of the Canon’s Order of the Black Sepulchre (KCS). These letters do not carry connotations of knighthood (Unlike domestic orders of chivalry) and always come after local orders in the line of precedence.

  14. Busy in his study at the highest point of Novellen, littered by notes for ciphers, concepts for an Imperial flagship, and plans for a great adventure, Peter III finds the time to review these two passed bills. The Emperor finds no issue with the budget, but flies in to an uproar at the taxation bill! Rushing to Varoche Hall, he loudly reprimands the present senators. “Look at the header; this is still no more than a template! Where is the date?” Peter roars to his officials. “Satraps? We are not some oriental despotism! We do not have SATRAPS!” He states with a furious slam on May’s desk. “Where is the sponsor? Where is the date? You are my lawmaking body! You legislate for this very Empire! Everything you do MUST be of the utmost neatness and professionalism!” Quickly calming himself after his short fit, the Emperor mentions a lesser item to be modified. “Do remove the taxation for the City of Helena from this bill, as it is closer to my personal property than a vassal province. The Crown will manage it in a different matter.”
