  1. This is a little ridiculous. It's an SMP temp-map that lasts 8 days. Check out my announcement in LotC public discord. Case dismissed
  2. Hey Slorbin, We're investigating the situation and should offer a proper response soon. Until then, I'll be locking this thread.
  3. The rules page has been formatted for better organization, and some rules have been rewritten to make them more concise. Rules that no longer apply (for example, freebuild) have been removed.
  4. Lorenz knelt before the Temple of Saint Nafis in the restored lands of the former Heartland capital. He whispered a prayer and traced the Cross of Lorraine in the air.

  7. Lorenz Gavaudin signed the Cross of Lorraine, reminiscing about the conversation he had with Adrian concerning his armor craftsmanship. "May GOD bless the King of Balian." He intends to be present at the coronation to show his support for his distant kin.
  8. If you're not terribly busy writing Adrian propaganda as an impartial admin, think we could get a /seen analysis on the Adrian warclaim roster of immersive and active RPers so we could see their RP immersion and activity now that they don't have to PvP anymore?

  9. (Vienne, the once the Capital of Aaun, now under the dominion of nature) RECLAMATION OF THE HEARTLANDS Lorenz Gavaudin of Adria 13th of Tobias' Bounty 1921 IC | 125 SA LO’ unto Adrians, The Capital of the Heartlands was once a radiating symbol of the Holy Orenian Empire's triumphant valor. However, as the sands of time slipped away along with the dissolution of the Empire, the land's diminishment became increasingly evident, a stark contrast to the reverence it once commanded. The goal was to reclaim the Capital of the Heartlands from the displaced and vagrant Aaunic monarch. The land, once a proud location of the capitals of Providence, New Providence, and Vienne, had fallen into disrepair - left uninhabited and barren by the United Kingdom of Aaun. Now, it is our obligation to rejuvenate this region and liberate it from the awful reconstruction perpetuated by the Aaunic monarch. In the days that followed, we dedicated ourselves to revitalizing our cherished homeland. Nature was given the chance to reclaim the land, and once barren fields began to bear the fruits of our labor. As we sowed seeds and tended to the soil, I felt confident that we were cultivating a brighter future for the Heartlands. One idol remained standing, however, as the church served as a steadfast symbol of unwavering resilience. Its presence acted as a reminder of the faith and determination that guided us in our pursuit to rebuild the Heartlands. None of this would have been done without the support of Blackvale people. Their contributions equipped the Adrian soldiers and excavation team with the resources necessary to reclaim our rightful role as the Heartlands' caretakers. Today, as the Capital of the Heartlands proudly stands under the rule of the Duchy of Adria, a new era has unfolded for our people. No longer a desolate and uninhabited land, the Heartlands now exemplify the power of assertiveness, unity, and unwavering spirit of the Adrian people. With the invaluable backing of Blackvale, we have succeeded in our goal, and together, look forward to a future filled with potential and prosperity.
  10. Original: N/A Update: Malirally bells can only be used after three preparation emotes. Rational: This is how we treat it now via the plugin & our policy, but there's no reference to it in the rules.
  11. Although the trial period for raid ladders & tnt is over, we're looking into potentially reimplementing them in the far future with some more community feedback on how they should work. They no longer exist on the server, so any rule pertaining to them should be void for the time being. (just a long overdue update, sorry!)
  12. 90% of this users posts and activity on the server has been hidden. Some may call this strange.

  13. (A depiction of a crumbling Vienne, inhabited by Charles I and Aaunic noblemen, 1914) TREATISE ON THE KINGDOM OF HAENSE On Impending Demise Lorenz Gavaudin of Adria 20th of Horen’s Calling 1921 IC | 125 SA I have witnessed the fall of the once-great Holy Orenian Empire and now cast my gaze upon the Kingdom of Haense. I cannot help but notice striking similarities between these two nations, leading me to believe that Haense may be doomed to meet a similar fate as the Empire. In this thesis, I will outline the reasons for the Holy Orenian Empire's fall and explore the parallels that threaten Haense's future stability. In my observations, one of the most prominent factors contributing to the decline of the Holy Orenian Empire was the dwindling activity of the Imperial State Army. It once protected and enforced the Empire's power, but as its activity waned, the nation's security weakened. Desperate for support, the Empire tried to induct mercenaries into its lands several times, much like Haense does now. However, these mercenary groups often turned their backs and betrayed the monarch they swore to serve. Similarly, the Kingdom of Haense's Brotherhood of Saint Karl appears to be suffering from a decline in activity, which renders it incapable of providing any sufficient security and strength for the nation. Due to Haense's reliance on capricious mercenaries and the deterioration of its own military might, the state finds itself in a vulnerable position. (A generic painting of an abandoned fort within Haense) Another aspect that troubles me is the excessive number of royal family members in both the Holy Orenian Empire and Haense. The elevated status and power of these individuals eventually leads to internal strife and competition, ultimately weakening the stability of the ruling class and the nation as a whole. It is my belief that the abundance of royal family members often results in a clash of interests and a struggle for influence, which proves detrimental to the Crown's unity and governance. Furthermore, I have noticed that both nations have a majority of nobles who have already achieved the highest attainable position within the social hierarchy. This lack of motivation and room for growth results in stagnation and complacency, further eroding the nation's ability to adapt and respond to challenges. I fear that this stagnation, which contributed to the Holy Orenian Empire's fall, now threatens the Kingdom of Haense. My concerns also extend to the isolationist foreign policies adopted by both the Holy Orenian Empire and Haense. This approach has led to missed opportunities for Haense, such as the potential annexation of the Heartlands. Instead, Haense focuses on ensuring that weak rulers control these territories, which may prove to be a short-sighted strategy in the long run. By maintaining an isolationist stance, Haense is limiting its growth and influence, allowing its neighbors to gain power and potentially threaten its existence. Another disconcerting similarity is the lack of confidence in the leadership of both nations. The populations of the Holy Orenian Empire and Haense have questioned the decisions and direction of their respective rulers. This lack of trust can lead to unrest, disobedience, and even rebellion, as the people begin to lose faith in the ability of their leaders to govern effectively. I also perceive a pattern of indecisiveness and inconsistency in the policies and actions of both nations. This wavering propagates to confusion, inefficiency, and a lack of strategic direction, all of which contribute to the decline of a nation. The Holy Orenian Empire's inability to maintain a consistent and coherent policy contributed to its downfall, and Haense seems to be struggling with similar issues. Lastly, I have observed that both the Holy Orenian Empire and the Kingdom of Haense have experienced a pacifist population that is less inclined to defend their nation and its interests. While pacifism may be admirable in certain contexts, it is a certain liability when the Crown faces external threats or internal challenges. A passive population may be less willing to support the military, engage in political activity, or contribute to the nation's defense, leaving it vulnerable to collapse. The Holy Orenian Empire's fall serves as a cautionary tale for the Kingdom of Haense, which faces strikingly similar challenges. The decline of their military, the high number of royal family members, stagnation within the noble class, isolationist foreign policies, lack of confidence in leadership, indecisiveness, and a pacifist population are all factors that contributed to the Empire's collapse and now threaten the future of Haense. As Lorenz Gavaudin, I can only hope that the Kingdom of Haense will recognize these parallels and take swift, decisive action to address these issues, lest it succumb to the same fate as the Holy Orenian Empire.
