  1. The Swiss Confederacy Rebuilding The previous six months have been a flurry of activity for the Swiss. Many men have been moved and the armies merged. In the flurry, the governments have struggled to amalgamate their scriptures and ledgers, meaning many men are left by the way side. The resulting army that came from a force that, while disparate, may have numbered in the tens of thousands, can now barely scratch five. The burghers, in their alarm, begin the confederacies move into a more centralised state. Using part of the uncompleted census has given them a basis for the governance, and the cantons agree on a central government, based off the fourteen, along with their associates. While some of the Cantons have much greater clout, the divide between the people of the Swiss must be closed. They must have peace in the confederacy, even if the outside world burns. The Cantons The cantons are in a state of flux. Many merchants and business men run their errands through the streets, for they are rebuilding a nation. Underclerks and minor dignitaries speak to grizzled veterans, beginning the start of a recruitment drive. Assessments of the equipment the swiss is undertaken and the business the swiss do have is assessed. Actions [Mod] The Swiss Confederacy takes stock in their current forces, beginning a pogrom of training, having the men train in the traditional pike square, as well as the new musket techniques sweeping the continent. [Mod] Recruiters are sent throughout the Swiss lands: to recruit fresh faced young men to swell the ranks once more; bring back those who were lost in the merging; and to find those Swiss mercenary captains who have retired to their farmsteads, to bring experience back to the forces. The aim is to bring the army back to a force of approximately fifty thousand within the next three years. [Mod] Trusted burghers of the state are told to inform Swiss who either live, serve or work abroad of the sweeping changes being brought to the nation. They are instructed to hint to these individuals that the new confederated states wish to employ numbers of people to the land and the forces. The Swiss government undergoes it’s severe reform, forming it’s bureaucracy to oversee the land. The census of the confederacy continues, as the previous bureaucracy must be worked through. ((Apologies for the mass of actions and lack of RP, this week has been rather busy.))
  2. The islands to the south of Arcas boast a large variety of beasts, predators and prey. Recent excursions to the island have seen the remains of animals littered near the river system to the west of the island. They seem to have been violently dragged into the river followed by being torn apart. The powers that be wish to eliminate this threat. A party of hunters must be prepared for a tussle in the undergrowth or in the water to prevent injury or death. CREATURE NAME OR OBJECTIVE- Unknown predator near the river LOCATION – River system to the east of the jungle island THREAT LEVEL – Intermediate REWARD – 100 mina per trophy (500 mina max) PROGRESSION SYSTEM (IF APPLICABLE) – Time ((Contact me privately via Forum message or Discord, Knightei#1596 ))
  3. Turn 7 – 2207 Flag of the Quercus As the sun sets, and rises, the Adaaptar of the Quercus continue their toil, the work is never done. The Exploration ship sailed into it’s cradle at the space port, the hull pitted with dents. As it is looked over, the Metal Bender tuts, fingering the micro-asteroid holes with some displeasure. ”This cannot be avoided it seems with the Fusion Power engines we have used... But, with the new Warp engines! Alas anything is possible.” The work on refitting the exploration ship commences, the workers in their space suits using their plasma torches beginning to patch holes and other dents in the hull. A new warp drive is brought up to the ship, beggining the installation as the captain reads over the plans. ”Ah, this shall make our lives much easier...” Two more sister ships begin construction, the crew of the original is dispersed amongst the new boats. They await their ships to be given the green light once more. As the researchers continue their work, celebrations were abound for the discovery of Warp travel. The plane of Olea rejoiced in a public holiday, their religious fervour abound for the Old One. Dedications and prayer was sent out into the void, all voiced to rejoice in the One. The Adaptaar, after months of busy work, began their work anew for the sensor program. The sensors were upsized, with power modules increasing in output to match. Advancements in the software allowed for more efficient data processing, with improved latency between the sensor and the controlling computer. Meanwhile, a team headed by Fulva begins to look at the illnesses and sickness that have come all apparent in this new inter-stellar age. ”Why should we fear the sicknesses of the past?” asked the Archon. The small institute began it’s work, formulating more powerful vaccines and anti-fungals that have plagued the adaptaar for millennia. The recently made Colony ship roars into action, taking off into the void. The new warp drive causing the displacement to be mere minutes, a fleet of smaller vessels are used to ferry the colonists off into their new home. The dust cloud of Morus were to be mined, but those who have came are not all of good intention. ”With this frontier town, we can operate more openly.” “The discontent has died down for now... But we didn’t cause that.” ”Well, no worries to be had then!” ”I am not too sure, I shall look over the slates. Be wary out there.” ”Nonsense, I am here to help.” The High Archon descended from his perch in the capital in Bombax, his robes fluttering. Travelling to the Life Institute, he began a flurry of activity. Blessed individuals found greater fervour for their work, operating with their minds of their patients. State of the Quorum: Actions Taken: [Mod] The colony ship moves to Acer to begin colonising the sector [Red] [Mod] The two exploration vessels continue on their voyage, with one returning home for refitting with warp drives [Pink] [Mod] Research continues on improved macro-sensors, increasing processing power, decreasing acquisition time and improving data accuracy [25 R spent on improving the range of ship sensors (50/??)] Research into the previous enhancements of scientific equipment continues [26 R spent of RF improvements (50/50)] [Mod] Research commences on increasing the total and working lifespan of the Adaptaar peoples [15 R spend on increasing pop growth speed (15/??)] Two Exploration Ships are built in Bombax [2M] [Mod] High Archon Amissa goes to the masses and begins a pogrom of healing, beginning a reform into the health care of the Quercus and coordinating the lower skilled Psionic Healers into action. Balance Sheet:
  4. Chadwick sighs as he shakes his head, his violent constipation that forced him to leave the assembly had adbated. He nods at the proceedings, humming slightly. ”Indeed, this was a good one! May we have many more busy assemblies!”
  5. Chadwick squints at reading the dark writing on the dark parchment, struggling to find what was written.
  6. Chadwick, sitting in the magistrates office, reads the treaty. He continues to read as he reads various other documents before shaking his head. ”Matthias has over stepped his bounds, this treaty is null and void until the assembly ratifies it. This is a truly dark day for the republic, when the prince over steps his bounds.”
  7. THE ELEVENTH SESSION OF THE CITY ASSEMBLY OF THE GOLDEN CITY OF VES c. 5th of the Sun’s Smile, 1718 s. Jan Haas As decreed by His Serenity, Prince Matthias of the Golden City of Ves on behalf of the populace of the Golden City, the Second Meeting of the Fourth Assembly has been called to order. Within this document are those assemblymen which constitute the Fourth Assembly along with the proposals debated. Alongside with the debated proposals are the results of said proposals. Here be those who represent the populace of the Golden City of Ves between the years 1718 to 1722. Prince Matthias Rutledge Patrician Mortimer Myre Patrician Nedric Arkazniv Patrician Chadwick Morris Patrician Paul Varoche Patrician Sun Watanabe Jan Haas Donnie le Croix Cedric Black Cassian Zahret al-Qataffi Otho Aurelius Armin Tylos Evie Devereux Urrigon Drumm Urist Drumm Amalia Varnes Our fair assembly began with a moment of silence for the recently deceased guardsman whom men dubbed Plaid. I. ASCENSION OF ARKAZNIV TO THE STATUS OF PATRICIAN Raised by the late Prince Alfred Myre, Nedric Arkazniv is to be affirmed to the status of Patrician and afforded those rights bestowed upon the status by the Charter of the Golden City of Ves. This proposal passed with a count of eleven ayes, no nays and six abstentions. II. ASCENSION OF MORRIS TO THE STATUS OF PATRICIAN Raised by the late Prince Alfred Myre, Chadwick Morris is to be affirmed to the status of Patrician and afforded those rights bestowed upon the status by the Charter of the Golden City of Ves. This proposal passed with a count of eight ayes, no nays and eight abstentions. III. ASCENSION OF VAROCHE TO THE STATUS OF PATRICIAN Raised by the late Prince Alfred Myre, Paul Freedom Varoche is to be affirmed to the status of Patrician and afforded those rights bestowed upon the status by the Charter of the Golden City of Ves. This proposal failed miserably with a count of zero ayes, eight nays and eight abstentions. IV. THE RESURGENCE OF THE TITLE OF TAVERN LORD (LADY) Proposed by Prince Matthias seeking to afford the owner and proprietor of the Bird and the Bard tavern a perpetual seat in the city assembly. The proposal was met with mixed response, with Assemblyman Cassian whom has proven to be vocal of his distaste of the tavern’s no smoking laws expressing discontent. Assemblyman Jan Haas, first among equals explained to the assembly that this vote would require changing the fundamental definitions of the assembly within the charter and could not be done without a vote of 2/3rds majority, which the Assembly did not hold. This proposal was tabled by the Prince to the 12th Session of the City Assembly. V. ASCENSION OF LITHREN TO THE STATUS OF PATRICIAN Raised by Prince Matthias, Lithren of the Bird and the Bard is to be affirmed to the status of Patrician and afforded those rights bestowed upon the status by the Charter of the Golden City of Ves. Assemblyman Cassian spoke briefly about the precedent set in a previous session of the City Assembly in which a Patrician must be required to sire children. The proposal was requested to be tabled by Assemblyman Jan Haas, first among equals so this precedent can be investigated by the Office of the Magistrate. This proposal was tabled by the Prince to the 12th Session of the City Assembly. VI. REQUEST FOR A HOOKAH (SMOKING DEVICE) WITHIN THE GATEHOUSE Proposed by Assemblyman Zahret al-Qataffi seeking to order the City Watch to place a hookah within the gatehouse. The assemblyman droned on about the benefits until he was rebuffed by the Prince. This proposal was vetoed by the Prince. VI. A CHANGE TO THE UNIFORM OF THE CITY WATCH OF VES Proposed by Assemblyman Zahret al-Qataffi seeking to order the City Watch to change the uniforms of the City Watch to be forced to wear headscarfs. A dispute began between the two watchmen-in-assembly Assemblyman al-Qataffi and Assemblyman Black. This proposal failed with a count of two ayes, four nays and ten abstentions. VII. CONCLUSION OF THE ELEVENTH SESSION OF THE CITY ASSEMBLY OF VES Proposed by Prince Matthias Rutledge, this proposal seeks to conclude the assembly. This proposal passed with a count of six ayes, zero nays and ten abstentions.
  8. THE TENTH SESSION OF THE CITY ASSEMBLY OF THE GOLDEN CITY OF VES c. 5th of the Malin’s Welcome, 1718 s. Jan Haas As decreed by The City Assembly of Ves on behalf of the populace of the Golden City, the First Meeting of the Fourth Assembly has been called to order. Within this document are those assemblymen which constitute the Fourth Assembly along with the proposals debated. Alongside with the debated proposals are the results of said proposals. Here be those who represent the populace of the Golden City of Ves between the years 1718 to 1722. Patrician Matthias Rutledge Patrician Mortimer Myre Patrician Nedric Arkazniv Patrician Chadwick Morris Patrician Paul Varoche Patrician Sun Watanabe Jan Haas Donnie le Croix Cedric Black Cassian Zahret al-Qataffi Otho Aurelius Armin Tylos Evie Devereux Urrigon Drumm Urist Drumm Amalia Varnes Our Prince has perished, long live the Prince. Alfred Myre lived as he died. The Assembly of the Golden City of Ves is tasked with electing the new Prince from the batch of Patricians. These candidates are listed below. Patrician Matthias Rutledge Patrician Mortimer Myre Patrician Nedric Arkazniv Patrician Chadwick Morris Patrician Paul Varoche The Third Assembly had failed to elect a new Prince after the death of Prince Myre. Their time was up and it was time for a new assembly to elect a Prince from the candidates listed. The previous vote was Four for Nedric, Three for Matthias, and Three for Chadwick with none receiving a majority. Now it is time for the Fourth Assembly to vote for our Prince. The election was managed by Assemblyman Jan Haas, first among equals. The roll was called for each and every assemblyman. Patrician Matthias Rutledge received eleven votes, Patrician Nedric Arkazniv received four votes after his endorsement of Prince Matthias, and Patrician Chadwick Morris received a single vote after his brother blundered his speech. We have a majority, Matthias Rutledge ascends to the title of Prince of the Golden City of Ves.
  9. Turn 6 – 2206 Flag of the Quercus The stars waltzed around the galactic core, their many lesser partners swinging around their suns. Out in the ‘North West’ arm of the galaxy, one could find the Quorum, their scurrying for interstellar ambitions keeping them busy. The office was awash with a flurry of activity, board after board of cellulose was being filled with lines and lines of mathematics. The four adaptaar were conversing rapidly using their psionics, the formulation and debate occurring as quick as they could think. ”More!” a cry went out to the under-researcher, but they were already prepared, when they wheeled another board in, numbered in the corner. The leading Adaptaar scribbled the last on the board as one of the colleagues stood, proceeding to continue the equations to the next board. Meanwhile, the sensor division of research on Olea had made leaps and bounds. Macro-sizing the new sensors that had been produced for the exploration ships was proceeding leaps and bounds. ”Move it more to the left! Left! and ease it in.... Yes!” Scaba looked at the prototype aboard the small ship, ready to test this new long range sensor. Further scurrying was made on the launch pad, a vessel being loaded with construction materials. It soared through the atmosphere, docking with the minor spaceport. The skilled workers, clustered around the large skeleton of a ship, chatted to the closest Adaptaar near them, operating a daisy chain to converse instructions and reports on how their work was going. Further the work was done on the new colony ship. The gun runner grunted, moving the shipment to the drop off. As they left the items there, they scurried off through the undergrowth. The planet thrummed with energy, as psionic calls and responses were thrown out in the festival. The Archon nodded to the Mind Bender, ”It goes well yes?” ”Indeed, but we’ve had reports of malcontent.” ”Indeed?” ”Yes.” The Archon’s visage darkened, “Step up surveillance on them then.” The Mind Bender nodded, storing the tidbit away in their head to enact when the time permitted. State of the Quorum: Actions Taken: [Mod] The two exploration vessels continue on their voyage, as charted below: [Mod] Research continues into Warp field theory [13 R spent on research into Warp FTL (25/??)] [Mod] Research commences on improved macro-sensors [25 R spent on improving the range of ship sensors (25/??)] Research into the previous enhancements of scientific equipment continues [24 R spent of RF improvements (24/50)] A Colony ship is constructed in Bombax [8M] Balance Sheet:
  10. The Swiss Confederacy Background Having been a Confederate, multi-religious collection of states during the Religious war of 1640, the Swiss Confederacy remained neutral, on the ground that the Catholic Cantons attempted to promote their religion to the protestant states. Due to this, refugees from the surrounding companies swamped through the mountain valleys in the West, burgeoning Geneva into a large state. This fact, coupled with the rise of french-speaking protestants settling across the entirety of the confederacy, has seen Geneva been made as the 14 Canton in 1683. The religious tension in the region is rising, as the refugee crisis of 1641 has swollen the typically catholic heartland of the Confederacy be over wrought by french peasant families, now entering their second, or even third generation. Cantons and peasants alike chose Protestantism out of their own accord, but the Catholic heartland still holds the sway of power in the Swiss Diet, even if in monetary or manpower this power may have dropped away. Due to their numerous defence and mercenary contracts the individual cantons have signed to their neighbours, they’ve remained neutral in the recent years, but certain associates have been ravaged by the great powers travelling their land. The Swiss have maintained a state of readiness for hundreds of years, and have tried to remain at the forefront of military innovation, regardless that their more minor manpower would lend to it. The Cantons The burghers met in their guild halls, deciding on their professions stance on the new legislation that their colleagues have put forward. The discussion and debates continued until the town meeting had arrived. The guild masters, charged with their constituent's wants, desires and wishes, seated themselves in the hall, nodding and waving their greetings to fellow businessmen. The meisters had their debate, leaving the hall with their heads held high, for while some had their discourse, they had agreed to put forward the reforms to the Diet. Weeks later, the delegates from Zurich prepared their burg for the 13 other delegations of the cantons, with their 72 associates, protectorates, subjects and condominiums sending their representatives to argue and watch the major 14 states decide their fates. These 72 lesser states watched, whether aghast or in glee as the cantons had decided their Reformation, a wide range of legislature to improve centralisation of the Confederacy. For if the great powers began to pool their resources to form nation-states, why shouldn’t these liberal and intelligent Swiss? The Swiss Reform, 1684 As signed by: Zurich, Berne, Lucerne, Geneva, Uri, Schwyz, Unterwalden, Zug, Glarus, Basel, Fribourg, Solothurn, Schaffhausen, Appenzell That these states do so agree that their separate and indifferent borders are to be eroded away. The 14 Cantons do swear that they are not 14, but 1 Swiss Confederacy. Therefore, they agree that the Confederacy shall be made of constituent members of the Cantons to present a fair system of Democracy to represent all 14 areas of the Swiss. Due to this agreement and their centralisation, the Confederacy formally absorbs the following condominiums and subjects into the Confederacy proper, to be distributed and allowed to reside within the Cantons themselves. The Condominiums of: Freie Amter; County of Baden; County of Sargans; Landgraviate of Thurgau; Vogtei of Rheintal; Vogtei of Blenio; Vogtei of Rivera; Vogtei of Bellinzona; Landvogtai of Valmaggia; Landvogtai of Lugano; Landvogtai of Locarno; Londvogtai of Mendrisio; Count of Schwarzenburg; Curten; Grandson; Orve and Echallens; Uznach; Windegg; Hohensax; Valley of Leventina; Valley of Urseren; Kussnact; Einsiedeln Abbey; March; Hofe; County of Wedenberg; The Confederacy also does agree to pool their resources and economy to supply a standing Swiss Army made up of the separate Cantons to provide a force to protect the Confederacy. Furthermore, the Swiss Army could not be put into contract as Mercenaries unless ratified by the whole Confederacy. Finally, the Confederacy so allows the cantons to levy a singular tax upon all its subjects. In order to both pay for this new standing army while also to provide relief for those Cantons and subject states to build highways and bridges throughout the Confederacy, simultaneously to reinforce the mountain passes and Burgs. Actions [Diplomacy] The Cantons send diplomats reaffirming their neutrality to the great powers of the world, such as the Hasburgs, the French, the Venetians, the Danes, the Spanish or the English; while also offering the Swiss banking service for the neighbouring states. [Mod] The Swiss Confederacy unifies their military might between them, undergoing a series of military reform and joint training to cement loyalty to their fellow cantons. [Mod] The Swiss Confederacy offers the opportunity to their Associates: the The City of Biel, The City of St. Gallen, the Bishopric of St. Gallen, the Seiben Zendel, and the Three Leagues; the chance to join the confederacy. The census of the confederacy, to provide an expectation of their tax revenue for the years to come.
  11. I spent my money on the server for my coloured emotes, coloured emotes for those paying for it baby.
  12. Swiss Confederacy Leaders (With brief description of circumstances/personality): Complicated due to the confederacy being of 13 Cantons and a number of associated states. Effectively each canton either lead by an oligarchic republic leader (eg. Zurich)or a Landsgemeinde, the canton voting (eg. Glarus) Heirs: N/A (voting) State of the Swiss: Due to the divergence of history regarding religion and such, can discuss how the relgious differences of the canton stand, and whether the associate states have joined or not. Discord: Knightei#1596 (you have it)
  13. Chadwick Morris, Magistrate of Ves, nods reading this. He writes a quick note to himself to join the guild; offer his personal services; and to add support from the Magistrates office.
  14. Turn 5 – 2205 Quercus Quorum Flag of the Quercus Another year, another story. The planet span it’s cycles around the star, which research and discovery to be had by all. The twin ships had spent a year travelling between systems, travelling as a pair to the nearby stars at the edge of the galaxy. Barren worlds and gas giants greeted them at every turn, the captains becoming despondent. 6 months passed, and with low crew morale, the twin shipped embarked on their final journey together. They both drifted through the void to the final star. After dropping their acceleration, the twin crews paused in wonder. This planet was surrounded in a vast cloud of dust. With low visibility, the pair drifted apart to cover more ground. As confirmation of the dust composition came in, a wealth of minerals in dust-form, the sight of a planet was found. Celebrations were to be had, and the crews rejoiced, for the planet was indeed unique. Held in stasis, the world was an orb of blue in this unique cloud, for surely great interest for the scientific community. As the new labratory equipment went in production, the intellectual property leased out to one of the various corporations of the Quercus Quorum, the prototypes were put to use on Olea. Scaba, stepping off the small transport vessel, breathed in the air of Minima, the icy breathe condensing in the air. As the days turned to months, using the new equipment, the geology of Minima was assessed and categorised, with new mining methods being developed. From the jungle came Adaptaar, wether alone or in pairs, they slowly filtered from the clearing they had just met in. A few hours previously, a well built plantoid had addressed the populace, a well built stage and state of the art PA system, conveying his words to the crowd. Money had clearly found its way into Grata’s pockets. The ships drifted apart, their final voyage together finished for the foreseeable future. They travelled in opposite directions, intent on discovering more of the universe. State of the Quorum: Actions Taken: [Mod] Both Exploration ships depart from the system named “Morus” to head ‘north’ and ‘south’ respectively. Research into better scientific apparatus continues [1R spend on RF Improvements (25/25)] Research into more efficient mineral extraction [25R spent on BI Improvements (25/25)] [MOD] Research into faster than light travel [12R spent on research into FTL (12/??)] 1 Research Centre created in Olea Sector [15k C ( 10/10)] Balance Sheet:
  15. Turn 4 – 2204 Quercus Quorum Flag of the Quercus As the year came to a close, the Adapataar swarmed the streets in celebration, for news was filtering in as the Sector of Olea was declared ‘Most Holy’ for the foreseeable few cycles. The streets were thronging with plantoid bodies, short range psionic chatter causing the air to hold a fay-like energy. ”Some are not happy with the decision High Archon...” “I know, but the decision has been accepted by the majority of our believers!” ”I agree it is a good idea, but some of the combines have seen decreased productivity due to decreased fervour.” ”I know, but they’ll have to manage, they pay their tithe’s and that is all we really care on.” ”Agreed, I’ll keep an eye on them, I don’t trust them at all...” The celebrations continued for the weeks to come, until the residents of Bombax realised that their home wasn’t the exalted, but Orea was. As the fusion drives were checked and rechecked, the twin ships were ready. The ships, piloted expertly within half a kilometer within each other, gave each other electromagnetic O.K.s. The captains briefly conversed over their psionics before the engines roared into life, the first stage of the mission to be completed in union, as all things should be. The scout vessels drifted out of Bombax, entering into the unknown. Grata left through the door, his gait steady and his face neutral. He turned to his friend, commenting on the conversation they just had. ”I’m not sure on this... They claim they are religious but wish to aid in our cause... We must think on this.” The men and women of the laboratories of Maxma cried out, for they had made a breakthrough. Fulva entered the lab, a wide grin upon his face. ”So these new plant forms, there is a species which focuses down light through a strange lens on it’s form?” ”Yes yes, and concentrates it into this densely packed receptor!” ”Ah, so both have been adapted for our sensors?” ”Indeed, they’ll be ready next year, and produced the year following!” State of the Quorum: Actions Taken: [Mod] Both Exploration ships depart from the Bombax system to head ‘Westward’ Research into better scientific apparatus continues [18R spend on RF Improvements (24/25)] 5 Research Centres created in Olea Sector [60k C] Balance Sheet:
