    FIRST COUNCIL OF THE DUCAL CITY OF VES 1706

    Alfred reads over the publication of the assembly’s minutes seated by the fire, having not been able to attend himself. “So they could not find it within themselves to afford for a city watch, and yet they could take up an act of serfdom with ardent zeal? We find ourselves becoming a new, doubtless very different, Salvus...”
  9. As it stands, forum topics—and thus the forums as a whole— seem far less active than previously. Now I understand that several factors might be at work here, but threads become to feel lonely, and what could drive forum content further than the desire for +1s? This is a tragedy for good forum content and should be remedied. Currently on the desktop version the placement of the modules on the right hand of the screen vary as follows, top to bottom: Discord or the Twitter feed → status updates → latest topics. This is not how the modules have been arranged previously! The Discord module does not really give us much at all, besides the player count; unfortunately the Twitter feed goes mostly without use (as it always has.) Meanwhile the very bread and butter of the forums, the latest topics, is left at the very bottom of them all! My suggestion is that the latest topics module is returned to its preeminent status of old in order to encourage greater use and activity of forum threads. Thank you.

    This is like putting a bandaid on a broken bone, and more changes will be needed to deal with the villain/bandit problem, but it’s a start.
  11. server threads feel very dead these days, why not put the latest topics module above voting/tweets(???)/statuses

  13. DUCAL CHARTER FOR THE CITY OF VES c. 3rd of Snow’s Maiden, 1706 The City of Ves was established by the refugee inhabitants of the Atlasian town of Belvitz, along with their Duke, Paul Franz I Carrion, in the last month of 1705. While prosperity and good will filled the air of the city from its very grounding, the responsibilities of office came to bear upon certain members of government led by the maer of Belvitz, Artumee: the martial and influential Ault family, moved by spite at Paul’s innovative spirit, sought to take him from off his throne. The plot was floundered after the conspirators drew weapons on their liege lord, and they were vanquished with haste by the Duke’s loyalists, Artumee lying dead upon the streets and her husband banished from all imperial domains. This traitorous act by such an ancient house sent shockwaves through the city, prompting a constitutional crisis… The City of Ves is the domain of the elected Duke of Adria. While it is not his official seat from which he reigns, it is acknowledged as the capital of the duchy of Paul, the Eighth Duke of Adria and of his successors. Thus, the City of Ves and its surrounding properties cannot legally be granted to another and the title is intertwined with the Duke’s. Thus neither can the descendent of a previous Duke of Adria claim rights to the City without first claiming rights to the Duchy. The City of Ves is granted privileges under Gradic Law by the Duke of Adria which allows for stability during turbulent Ducal transitions. The Gradic rights were given to the Imperial City of Felsen during the reign of John II, Holy Orenian Emperor which allowed for greater autonomy to the city through a series of municipal rights. These rights came from a series of laws which gave privileges to the burghers, exemption from serfdom, and the ability for self-governance and self-defense. The Gradic Rights, c.1557 Hitherto the populace of this town shall be referred to as any legal landholder within municipal authority. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to waive feudal privilege and govern itself. Hence the town has the right to choose a leader from amongst its own. Hence the town has the right to produce and publish laws and rights regarding itself. Hitherto does the populace of this town have an exemption from serfdom. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to freedom of travel. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to collect tax, tolls, and impose fees. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to freedom of trade. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to a trial by judge. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to petition it’s lord. MAYOR OF THE CITY OF VES The Mayor of the City of Ves is elected by popular vote serving a term of four years.

    The City of Ves

    The Gatehouse and Walls as seen from the King’s Road The Municipality of Ves Coin for Most, Blood for Freedom The Municipality of Ves is a beacon of the Arts, Philosophies and Sciences in a time of growing ignorance amongst humanity. Long hailed as the land of opportunity (and opportunists) the Adrians have perfected the art of meritocracy, with hard workers and a competitive hierarchy of persons clawing for increasingly marginal powers over their peers. Regardless of such strife, the city is known for its unique architecture, striking color, and diverse cultures; you might find an exchange on the streets between a Raevir nobleman and an Illatian burgher, or a common serf selling his produce to an orcish merchant. For those seeking a world of opportunity, diversity, and unique expression, as well as a home where gravitas is ripe for the taking, the City of Ves awaits. Histories Upon the death of the last male Valic, Dario Valic, Vesna Carrion became the last descendant of Bronte, as well as the sole living child of Vladan Valic, former Marshal of Adria. In remembrance of both Vesna’s commitment to the Duchy, her renowned sense of motherhood, and the service that House Valic had contributed to the City of Belvitz, the New Adrian Capital would be her namesake. Designs for a new city were drafted by the prodigy Rupert Carrion, son of legally dead Ostrobar Carrion and cousin to Duke Paul Everard Otto Phillip Leopold Eugene I, henceforth referred to as Paul I. Their striking differentiation drew sharp criticism from critics of architecture, however were widely popular amongst the populace, as much innovation is, and was therefore decided upon as the future design of Ves. Construction began upon arrival. Housing Ves’s large, colorful houses are in high demand. As such, their prices are reflective of such, and Ves stewards are renowned for their shrewd practice of usury and interest in their housing plans, often profiting personally off of the purchases of houses. Taxes can be paid in iron and minas, or both; amount is determined by category. Homes range from a single floor to four-story mansions, and everything in between. Contact a steward to buy property! The City and Her Districts as seen from the Basarab Tower Basarab Institute of Philosophy and Liberal Arts Considered a spiritual successor of the University of Holm and the Imperial Institute of Johannesburg, the Basarab Institute is a memorial to one Barnabas Basarab, and the entirety of House Basarab’s contribution to Adrian society. All lessons, ranging from bookkeeping and literacy, to medicine and philosophy, are taught at a price, with different methods of approach depending on the professor. Some prefer one-on-one tutoring sessions, others lectures; if one is willing to pay the coin, they will undoubtedly learn something worthwhile there. The Institute as seen in the Daytime Theater Led by the renowned Timeo “the Great” de la Baltas, the Theater Troupe of Ves operates monthly, and its plays are known for their both romanticism and accuracy, depending on who you ask, as well as their artistic endeavors to further the art. Features such as “The Lusty Kharajyr Maid” and “Siegmund’s Lament” have become renowned for their delivery by the Troupe. Timeo is accepting of all newcomers, and would love new cast members. The Theater as seen during nighttime Cultures Ves has become a crossroads for all peoples in Arcas, especially those left in the wake of the Empire’s various campaigns. Rosenyr’s forsaken souls rallied under Timeo the Great, and serve him in various facets of the community. The Raevir elite of Old Adria still linger, and the occasional Norlandic warrior finds his way to the city gates. Elves inhabit multiple neighborhoods and taverns, and orcs have found their way into ghettos and tents, left to be refugees at the Empire’s whim. Some Curonites, dismayed by their city’s barren streets, have found the life of Ves refreshing. All may find Ves as their home. Merchant Companies Schnub & Crowley Co. is a major employer of the city’s townsfolk, and a lucrative trader of wares throughout all the nations. The company owns a sizeable amount of property within the city and continues to expand at a rapid pace. Bruce Rogers is at it again, and this time with the full might of Adria behind his greedy purse. With full support from the Duke, Mr. Rogers has established an empire of trade and wares throughout the city, and is looking for more citizens to aid him in his endeavours. Government Although there has been great debate over the supremacy of the Duchy over the City of Ves, the City is effectively run by the Maer. The Maer is elected by his or her peers every four Saint’s Weeks, and is tasked with the maintenance of the city’s finances, activity and endeavors. They are in charge of the recruitment of stewards, who do not need to be elected, and aid in the process of city management. Paul I is still the de facto overlord of the City, and is accompanied by his Ducal Guard at all times when inside its walls and outside as well. He is to collect the taxes gained from the Maer on a periodic basis. The Maer is to keep a ledger bearing records of sales, minas and iron gained, and housing addresses. NEEDED INDUSTRIES: TAX OFFICE Persons willing to maintain the town hall, especially on matters of tax paper creation and collection, bulletin maintenance, as well as weekly meetings to discuss the future of the city are welcome and will receive state support. NEWSPAPER Bold entrepreneur required to start their own printing industry. State support may be provided. TAILOR’S GUILD (Skinners) A skilled maker of clothing and cutters of hair welcome to set up their own office in Ves. ARTIST’S GUILD Creators of Art are sponsored in Ves, and will receive state support for their efforts, whether it be musical, painted, or of other varieties. Art, Music, and Literature provided for the City of Ves shall be compensated and rewarded, though it would be preferred that this be a transaction between a single guild and the state to make things easier. MINER’S GUILD Those bold enough to establish a union of miners, intent on the mass harvesting and production of precious ores and coal shall be handsomely rewarded by the various industries and factions in Ves for their product, as well as given free and untaxed access to the mines. NATIONAL BANK He with a surplus of capital and an ability to provide loans to those who seek them shall find great economic surplus in Ves.
