  1. His Imperial Majesty has reviewed the bills passed this session and given the following terms: To the revised Civil Unions Bill: since the requested amendments have been made, We do give full assent. To the Provincial Census Information Bill: in Section I, Item II the Crown believes there is a conflict of interest in allowing all senators to unilaterally request information on their constituents. This power of subpoena should lie solely with provincial heads. In Section I, Item III the Chair of Civil Affairs should not authorize, but request, for this body has no granted powers over census data. To the National Land Survey Bill: We give full assent. To the Judicial Reform Bill: We withhold assent. The bill requires a full redrafting and vote. To the Goblin Bill: We give full assent. To the Rotation Bill: We withhold assent. The Imperial Senate is the Emperor’s legislative body, and shall by default meet close to the seat of his governance, the Imperial Capital.
  2. After conference with the Secretary of the Treasury, the Amyas Bill and Entrepreneurship Bill are given full assent.
  3. His Imperial Majesty has reviewed and passed judgement on the following acts: The Battlements Bill receives full assent. The Ratibor Bill receives full assent. The Gwali Bill’s name conflicts with the established national language of Oren, contains mistakes such as the presence of “livres” rather than “marks”, and is filled with errors otherwise. These errors must be corrected to receive assent. The Child Labour Bill receives full assent. The Amyas Bill may receive assent or modifications based on conference with the Secretary of the Treasury. The Railroad Bill receives full assent. The Committee Reform Bill receives full assent. The Entrepreneurship Bill may receive assent or modifications based on conference with the Secretary of the Treasury. The Civil Unions Bill is found redundant when compared against the Orenian Revised Code passed prior by the Senate. Assent is witheld.
  4. A squadron of wigged bureaucrats invites Levian to the Imperial capital of Helena, city of dreams.

  7. Freebuild allows the same “race to the bottom” that charters have. Any conflict or desire for ego expansion becomes a new settlement – and then roleplay suffers as we’ve seen.
  8. Excellent step towards putting roleplay back at the forefront of priorities. In the end, everyone will be grateful for this bravery against the status quo.
  9. The Emperor reviews the end of session from his front study, kitted fully in military costume. “After discussion with the office in question, the Crown does give assent to the Rivaini Act of 1756. The Crown does give eager assent to the Paddington Act of 1756. When the ages of participation are adjusted to nine through seventeen years, the Crown will give full assent to the Imperial Exchange Program of 1754. All issues concluded, the Crown hereby declares this tenth session prorogued.” At that, Peter the Third sets sails for adventure, wig billowing in the ocean wind.
  10. Battle of Rubern 15th of Owyn’s Flame, 1756 A few Orenian troopers of the 1st regiment - including Cpt. d’Arkent on horseback and Lt. Octavian fully armored on the right. At the edge of the Emperor’s personal demesne, where the fertile Heartlands give way to sparse and abandoned fields about Rubern, a small team of surveyors and engineers spotted some seven-hundred coalitioners crossing Oren’s borders. Falling back along the highway, the team was speedily reinforced by garrisons from throughout the Crownlands. Once the incursionary force caught up to the Imperial troopers, the Empire’s defense had swelled to nine-hundred. Building a tight formation against the invaders, Orenian lines responded to ineffectual Qali arrows with a single volley, quickly routing their opponent back along the highway. The Imperial troopers pursued in orderly fashion, preventing the primitive enemy from gaining an advantage by skirmish. The chase persisted until reaching the low walls of Rubern, from which the coalition flung hurried arrows at the behest of their Renalian commander. The Imperial troopers slowly withdrew from the highway, lying in wait for their foe to recover morale. They did not have to wait long, skirmish picking back up in the weeds and tall grasses around the town. Spotting an opening between the invaders’ scattered positions and their escape route to the gate, Lieutenant Octavian directed the troopers in a coordinated charge, opening a bloody melee in which hardly a single coalitioner was able to escape. At the end of the day, the troopers were able to return home with their spoils and hurrahs, seeing the Empire defended against chimaeric hordes once again. The coalition’s dwindling supply of fighters does not know why they fight and die, but every Orenian knows their own purpose here: for God, Emperor, and Country!
  11. Edict of Settlement 20th of Horen’s Calling, 1756 20th of Snow’s Maiden, 1756 TO OUR BELOVED NATION, It is the desire of His Imperial Majesty, acting on the basis of years of cooperation, collaboration and otherwise fraternity with the Sons of Malin and allies, to reserve for them a stake of land of his personal domain with which to settle under the protection of the Crown. This reservation, defined as the Pale of Aldemar or simply the Pale in shorthand, shall be established from the time of the proclamation of this decree, the terms of such settlement defined therein with this very resolution. As such, we do resolve... PROVISION I: On the Pale, sovereignty and nationality I.

PROVISION II: On jurisdiction, privileges and terms of settlement I. That the Pale be outside of the normal jurisdiction of the Holy Orenian Empire for the purposes of courts of judicature, national elections, civil government and ecclesiastical parishes, as a personal reservation of property set aside by His Imperial Majesty.

That the Pale’s elven residents, in the event that they were to commit criminal or civil offenses outside of the Pale, be subject to the normal jurisdiction of the Empire. VI. That the Pale be permitted to maintain its own military and policing force as it deems fit, outside of the command of the Imperial State Army, insofar as any combatants of said military force may be levied by the General Staff or the Emperor personally, in defense of the Empire and for other uses against her enemies. VII. That the Pale be free from the ordinary garrison or otherwise presence of a military force with the exception of cases whereby they are granted explicit permission from its government to enter its territory or in the instances of defense or an emergency.

That the Pale’s Council of Elders be its civil government, legislature and chief court of judicature. IV. That the Pale’s executive personage in question is entitled the Warden of the Pale, who shall serve as the territory’s head of government and the general representative of its elven residents, discharging his duties as a loyal subject of His Imperial Majesty. V. That the Pale’s Council of Elders be selected by whichever way its government deems fit by virtue of their own legislation which shall compliment this document. VI. That the Warden of the Pale serves at the pleasure of the Council of Elders, and may be dismissed by them as the outcome of a majority vote. PROVISION IV: On devolved and reserved powers I.

II. That the Empire’s reserved powers, on which the Pale’s government may not enact legislation involving or contradictory to, consist of: • Capital offenses (espionage, treason and murder). • Foreign affairs as well as terrorism both domestic and external. • Trade (exports, imports and tariffs). PROVISION V: On the interpretation of this document I. That in the case of any provision of this document’s wording being ambiguous or otherwise requiring interpretation, in the case of a dispute, it shall be subject to a civil case heard fairly and impartially by the Imperial Supreme Court on which the ruling shall be precedential. For the Glory of Our Empire, HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Peter III Anthony, Holy Orenian Emperor, King of Renatus, Curon, Salvus, and Seventis, Prince of Malinor, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera.
  12. Hunched over his desk in Novellen, the Emperor carefully scribes, “The Imperial Personhood Act of 1754 will receive Crown assent automatically upon the correction of ‘Orog’ to ‘Olog’. For the Varoche Act of 1753, the Crown requires that the protections afforded to the Edict of Establishment must be defined. Does this immunize that document from amendment? To the Shearing Act of 1752, the Crown vigorously assents.”
