  1. The Order of St. Emma From Ashes, From Rubble History “I do, truly, believe there is peace in our time.” -Paul I Varoche, Duke of Adria, prior to the burning of Ves. The Order of St. Emma can find its roots in the reign of John I Sarkozic of Adria (circa 1650), in which his Marshal, Count of Vilacz Vladan I Valic founded the aforementioned Knights with the assistance of Artyom Vladov. The Order, originally designed to be a knightly lodge of nobles, took up its role as the main military force of the Duchy upon the ascension of Josip I Sarkozic, serving as his own personal Bannermen. It was dissolved under Ratibor I Carrion, replaced by the City Watch of Belvitz. It is under our Duke, Adrian I, that we reinstitute these great gentry to their proper order. Charge of Belle’s Hill, The Battle of the Rolling Hills (1660) Ranking of the Order “You put the K in Chain of Command.” - Broos Wellis, to Vladan Valic Marshal of Adria: The Marshal of Adria serves as the commander and bearer of the Adrian sword. It is his pen stroke that accompanies the seal of St. Emma, and it is his will that sustains the Order and its expansion. He shall be tasked with leading the men of St. Emma in battle. Commandant of the Marshal: Second to the Marshal, the Commandant is the authority of the Marshal when he is not present. He is tasked with the sustenance of a well-regulated and well trained order of Knights within the Order of St. Emma. Training and skirmishing are under the jurisdiction of the Seneschal and Commandant, as well as the regulation of the finances of the Order. Knight of the Order: The final rank most Ordermen could achieve. A nobleman or gentry of the Holy Orenian Empire and the Duchy of Adria. Any man bearing proper titles may apply for this rank in the Duchy, and Sergeants at Arms of the Order are privy to a nomination for knighthood from the Marshal and Duke to the Holy Orenian Emperor and Grand Knight. Sergeant at Arms of the Order: The ultimate rank of non-gentry within the Order of St. Emma. Responsible for the day-to-day management of grunts and non-gentry inside the Order. Seen as the executive actor of the Marshal’s will within the rank and file, and tasked with the preservation of the well being of all men within the Order, from the lowliest recruit to the Marshal himself. Man at Arms of the Order: A rank displaying the seasoned nature of a non-gentryman within the order. Achieved after a Saint’s Month of service, or 4 years. Footman of the Order: A rank signifying a blooded member of the Order of St. Emma. 2 Years of service are required to achieve this rank.

    The Response

    I was at the fight and felt it was pretty unique and fun. Only people who got killed in that trap were the ones who were too dumb or afk to hear me shouting at them to move. We cannot set a precedent with these new rules that players who do not fit a certain kind of RP play style deserve to be ostracized. TrendE has provided evidence that his blacklist was not only unjustified, but done with il-intent. Additionally, I feel that players should be free to interact in whatever sufficient Roleplay they come into contact with. The “Divine curses” are a shortcut for staff to slap restrictions on players they can’t ban and it needs to go.

    [Your View] Costs and Raids

    Never really been a fan of big restrictions on raiding. With proper RP, I feel like cool downs are a pain and unneccesary unless it’s become toxic. If it’s good RP let it be. Some the most fun wars were in the Fringe when players could actually fight it out without getting threatened a ban for breaking one of the million rules surrounding conflict.
  9. Seems familiar bs tbh, but back before in other wars with the same certain people, the shilling didn’t work. Guess it did now. Completely appalling lmao


  10. A letter would be sent back to the man "Veris is always looking for aspiring business owners to take host within our walls. Should you be interested, come to our newly built city and return this bird." Lord Marshal Dardanus Valmaron ((joenaj))

  13. Warclaim: Siege of Cantal “This Changes Nothing.” - Grand King Algoda Frostbeard As crows stood pecking on the corpses of the fallen warriors, following the coalition's victory at the Battle of Goldfield, the dwedmar descended down from the Evraal Mountains, marching into the heart of the Orenian Imperium. Their aim was simple; They would strike hard and fast, delivering a decisive blow that would set them on a direct course to lay siege to the Orenian capital of Johannesburg. Their recent victories had filled their hearts with defiance and hope that the Imperial menace would soon meet its end. So they marched on fearlessly, ready to cut the head from the Orenian snake once and for all. No longer were the dwedmar the only defense against tyranny. For in their march, they were joined by forces originating from all corners of Axios. Orcs from the east, Snow Elves from the north, High Elves from the west, and Human houses from all corners of the crumbling empire. A fire had been reignited, that gave hope to all those who the Horens had done wrong. No longer would the descendent races stand by as tyranny prevailed. No longer would they stand silent. “Velak yoth othok kraviil kronul!” roared Bastion Ireheart, the newly crowned Grand King of Urguan, following the brutal murder of his predecessor at the hands of Philip Frederick. Grand Marshal Jorik Grandaxe, joined by coalition commanders, stood at the forefront of the immense force, barking orders at their soldiers. They were old, and proven commanders, some having fought in war for most of their adult lives. At long last, victory was close in sight. ________________________________________________________________________ WARCLAIM Tier Chosen: 1 Type of battle: Siege Date And Time: Saturday, 21st of January, 3 PM EST Side A: The Grand Kingdom of Urguan and Allies Side B: Holy Orenian Empire and Allies Location: Dwarven route to Cantal Close up of the Barony Terms of Victory VICTORY FOR ATTACKERS- If the defenders are killed or driven from the field of battle.
