  1. THE SECOND GOLDEN BULL OF VES 4th of Sigismund’s End, 1728 HIS HOLINESS DANIEL VI, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Archbishop of Visigia, Keeper of Varoche, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth decree… TABLE OF CONTENTS: SECTION I: REAPPOINTMENT OF A DIOCESAN BISHOP SECTION II: THE ABBEY-SEMINARY OF SAINT ROBERT SECTION III: RESTORATION OF THE SEPTARCHY SECTION IV: APPOINTMENTS TO THE PONTIFICAL HOUSEHOLD SECTION V: THE ORDER OF THE BLACK SEPULCHER SEC. I. REAPPOINTMENT OF A DIOCESAN BISHOP Dearly beloved, by the promulgation of this bulla, His Grace, Metropolitan Bertholdt of Helena offers his official abdication from office, on account of his failing health. BERTHOLDT METROPOLITAN OF HELENA 1720-1728 In his stead, We have seen fit to consecrate Ludolf de Ruyter (Nectorist, or @Nectorist) as Metropolitan of Helena, duly bestowing upon him all the rights and responsibilities which come with the episcopal office. LUDOLF METROPOLITAN OF HELENA 1728- SEC. II. THE ABBEY-SEMINARY OF SAINT ROBERT Dearly beloved, by all the accounts of history, from antiquity until the present age, the Minor Order of Acolytes has gone through the most numerous of reforms. In keeping with this tradition, We the Pontificate have closely studied the methods of His Eminence, Odus Cardinal St-Robert, in the education and formation of his acolytes, and We see it fit that Mother Church ought to adopt his practices. The Minor Order of Acolytes has persistently held the largest drop-out rate of any of the Orders which compose Our Church, for detailed and diverse reasons; chief among these is a decided lack of fraternity amongst the Order. Historically, an acolyte has been sent off to be taught informally by a parish priest or diocesan bishop, which more often than not leads to aforementioned acolyte’s flight from the vows. It is in this method of teaching that an acolyte fails to create friendships or camaraderie amongst his peers, is not put to diligent work in respectable trades, and is left rather useless outside of his studies. This We seek to remedy. By the promulgation of this bulla, the Abbey of Saint Robert in the City of Ves shall be afforded the additional title of Abbey-Seminary. It shall function as the universal school of the Minor Order of Acolytes, receive them as students, and educate them as priests. Upon graduation and ordainment, they shall be sent for the dioceses in need for them. Additionally, We the Pontificate charge the Prelate of the Priesthood with oversight of this school, and name its first two deans. His Eminence, Dean Odus Cardinal St-Robert (Fatso_Fleeper, or @Padre_Tales) The Right Reverend, Dean Msgr. Othodoric Aurelius Helvets (Byzabro, or @Stevie) SEC. III. RESTORATION OF THE SEPTARCHY Dearly beloved, with the violent death of Our leal Cardinal Omeryn, upon which We diligently investigate, the Septarchy has been reduced to five Cardinals. This cannot do, as the Order requires completion. Sigismund Cardinal Cascadia, and Cassian Cardinal Omeryn, are paid their due respects with plaque and mourning. SIGISMUND CARDINAL CASCADIA 1720-1725 CASSIAN CARDINAL OMERYN 1724-1727 In the stead of these behemoths of the faith, We the Pontificate deem fit to raise Our leal faithful servants, Ludolf de Ruyter (Nectorist, or @Nectorist) and Abbot Odus de Jedih (Fatso_Fleeper, or @Padre_Tales) to the Septarchy. They shall be styled His Eminence, and take for themselves the names Ludolf Cardinal Pruvia, and Odus Cardinal St Robert, respectively. LUDOLF CARDINAL PRUVIA 1728- ODUS CARDINAL ST ROBERT 1728- SEC. IV. APPOINTMENTS TO THE PONTIFICAL HOUSEHOLD Dearly beloved, We the Pontificate have deemed fit to raise the following men to the Pontifical Household. They shall be styled Monsignor, and bestowed the rights and responsibilities of the Curial Office. KEEPER OF THE HOLY PRIMATES: The Right Reverend, Msgr. Othodoric Aurelius Helvets. (Byzabro, or @Stevie) PERSONAL CONFESSOR TO THE CHAIR OF ST. DANIEL: The Right Reverend, Msgr. Goraya of Bihar. (Ryanheff74, or @Heff) KEEPER OF THE HOLY RELICS: The Very Reverend, Msgr. Simon Basrid. (dibbo9, or @Cracker) GRAND ALMONER OF HIS HOLINESS: The Right Reverend, Msgr. Everard Sheffield. (Scipp3r, or @muldoon) SEC. V. THE ORDER OF THE BLACK SEPULCHER Dearly beloved, We the Pontificate have found fit to name His Imperial Majesty, Alexander II Stephen (Yopplwasupxxx, or @yopplwasupxxx), to the Order of the Black Sepulcher on account of his actions in retrieving the body of the late Cassian Cardinal Omeryn from his killers. He may include the honorific Holy Ser of the Black Sepulcher into his titles, and is bestowed the ashes of Blessed Polycarp to safeguard.
  2. AN ENCYCLICAL LETTER OF THE HIGH PONTIFF DANIEL VI TO THE ARCHBISHOPS, BISHOPS, AND LOCAL ORDINARIES AND TO THE CLERGY AND FAITHFUL OF THE CANONIST CHURCH 11th of Harren’s Folly, 1728 Dearly beloved, We join with the Lord in declaring, “thou spillest the blood of thine own uncle in Horen’s tabernacle” (Owyn XII). In sorrow, We weep in mourning for the death of Cassian Cardinal Omeryn, Our leal friend, and one of the High Pontiff’s own side. It has been said that a Cardinal is sent as if from the body of the High Pontiff himself, as has been written by Our own hand in the encyclical bulla REFORMATION OF THE SEPTARCHY, a most sacred office. Violence against a Cardinal of the Septarchy is thus tantamount to violence against the Holy Father himself, chosen Vicar of God, inheritor of the High Priesthood of Evaristus and Clement . . It is in this accursed month, in which the Prophet Owyn, “wroth for the death of his own father” slew his own blood (Owyn XI), that it was first brought before the Chair of Saint Daniel that one of her own Cardinals was slain without reprieve; but further, the news was compounded by defamation of the late Cardinal Omeryn was a shade, a cursed being of reprehensible evil. To these unfounded reports, Mother Church flees from all consolation, Her mourning for Her lost Cardinal greatly encreased. Worse, the reports came with demands made against the Chair of Saint Daniel, that His Holiness issue forth a posthumous excommunication against His faithful friend in life, now taken from his bosom. So too were demands lodged against the Kingdom of Llyria, that all the Cardinal’s work in life should be destroyed, and rendered null, as if no fruit were ever borne from his faithful hands. Within these demands were fundamental errors, which should drive the whole mission of the Church in the Omeryn Province to disarray. The most heinous of these were calls for numerous Llyrian officials to be rebaptized, as if such a thing were possible by the hands of men, and as if the sacred sacrament of baptism should be rendered without power if administered by sinful hands. To the princes of the world then was issued a call to arms, as if to launch a crusade unto the Llyrian Kingdom, a crusade led by the hands of Urguanite heathens. These heathens once admonished by the Exalted Prophet Owyn in writing, that the power of God is not “parted among servants, but imitated” (Dwarves II). Our Pontificate rightly judges such a call to be null and void. Our Pontificate thus opens a full investigation into the violence committed unto a Cardinal of the Septarchy, to be led in full by His Eminence, Humbert Cardinal St Jude, Auditor of the Tribunal (Thesmellypocket, or @thesmellypocket). To assist him is assigned The Right Reverend, Monsignor William Markunas, High Magistrate of the Tribunal (SuperKeziak, or @SuperKeziak). Additionally, The Right Reverend, Monsignor Everard Sheffield (Scipp3r, or @muldoon) shall assist directly in investigations. Furthermore, all Cardinals of the Septarchy are henceforth delegated Cardinal-Judges, and are called to assist in the full ascertainment of the truth. Witnesses, and all men of good will who believe themselves to hold information pertinent to this case involving the death of Cassian Cardinal Omeryn, and the claims lodged against him as a shade, are henceforth summoned before the Chair of Saint Daniel to deliver said information to the Auditor of the Tribunal and his delegated assistants. Furthermore, the follower of Xan, the elf Lefkos Amethil (@Fury_Fire) is summoned specifically for audience before the Chair of Saint Daniel within the year 1729-1730. If such a summons is unheeded, condemnation shall follow. Deo gratias, DANIEL VI

To be administered by His Eminence, Lochlan Cardinal Ves (Herathus, @Herathus, or Herathus#6850) THE CANONIZATION OF ST. NAFIS OF AL-DIRAHK Dearly beloved, the High Pontiff has verified accounts of three miracles by Bl. Nafis Yar, and with the unanimous assent of the Septarchy, has seen fit to declare him Saint Nafis of Al-Dirahk. Rejoice! SAINT NAFIS OF AL-DIRAHK – UNCUT DIAMOND 1495-1569. Patron Saint of Farfolk, Fishermen, Diamonds, Converts and Revolution Born as Nafis Yar, the orphaned Qalasheen - Oyashimian fisher-boy was under the wardship of House Kharadeen in the Caliphate of Khalestine. Raised in a tight knit community of “extended” Qalasheen family, Nafis developed a love for both his country and people and aspired to become a soldier for the Farfolk nation. Growing up he would be involved in the necrotic and monster purges of Vailorian Khalestine as Elven gentrification began to cripple the Farfolk economy. In times of peace, Nafis provided for his family by fishing at the local docks and on a tiny boat he saved up coin to purchase. Nafis would serve a brief time in the Order of Saint Lucien before becoming a mercenary after the Dukes’ War. He would go on to form the Hallowvale Contracting mercenary company and with a conglomerate of disenfranchised Qalasheen and comrades he met while fighting in the Kingdom of Oren. This would lead to Khalestine coming under a newly formed Kingdom of Vandoria first lead by Nafis’ pupil Frederick “Decimus” Rovin. During the Eighteen Years’ War, he would become a Prisoner of War in Urguan for four years before being freed by an advancing Imperial army. He would return home to Vandoria to find out the exiled House Winter and House Kharadeen had united the nation with the Dwed to form the ‘Grand Empire of Vanderguan’. Enraged by the subjugation of his people under the Dwed, Nafis would lead a rebellion known as the Qalasheen Spring. Despite early setbacks, Nafis would employ guerilla warfare against the various vassals of Vandoria who swore to the new Vanderguan and force them to bend the knee or face the blade. Nafis would become Lord Protector of the reformed Kingdom of Vandoria and dismantle the Caliphate of Khalestine into a Sultanate, make Canonism the official state religion and proclaim that the High Pontiff of the Canonist Faith was the only vicar of GOD. Nafis was first introduced to Canonism during his time served in the Dukes’ War and was officially baptized under High Pontiff Lucien III after he had conquered Vandoria. He would go on to die from Black Lung in his old age from years of smoking with his legacy survived by the reformed Sultanate of Khalestine under House Yar, his daughter Almas Yar-Lowedge and his son Rakim Yar who would serve as the last Grandmaster of the Atlasian Order of Saint Lucien. Miracles: In the Westerlands, Nafis’ son Rakim Yar wore the metal mask the Saint wore into battle against the undead. Right after giving commands to his lieutenants, A tainted arrow was shot at Rakim’s head and was embedded into the metal visage’s frontal lobe. Rakim was knocked out for the remainder of the battle, but awoke unscathed, untainted and with his men victorious. A group of soldiers found themselves stranded in the dead, tainted River Piscatoris. After praying to Saint Nafis and casting their lines out, they had a bountiful catch of monkfish that swam in from the sea free of taint. This catch provided enough food for the soldiers to return home. A Canonist missionary to the Alnorid visited the Emir Osman al-Mubak requesting he remove the religious tax on the Canonist Farfolk populace three times, all denied with threat of imprisonment the last time. The Canonist Missionary prayed to Saint Nafis for intervention and the next morning, Emir Osman was found dead on his throne with diamonds pouring from every orifice of his body. The next Emir would remove the religious tax on Canonists and compensate them for the unfair tax with the diamonds that were found in Osman. VENERABLE SIGISMUND I, PONTIAN II, AND JULIA OF HAENSE Dearly beloved, We have seen fit to raise the following virtuous faithful to the status of Venerable, the third class of the legenda sanctorum. With due study of their causes for canonization, these virtuous faithful may be named beatified or canonized at a future date. Following editions of the legenda sanctorum are mandated to include these additions. SIGISMUND I. For his actions in the Council of Ves. PONTIAN II.

  8. THE D’ARKENT MANIFESTO 1726 “Work first, then drink over your success.” Ser John d’Arkent The Crown sees the potential of the people of the Empire, idle now and with the will to create in the name of GOD and none other. The industriousness of humanity has been by the wayside in favor of our adeptness for the promulgation of conflict. Countless veterans lack the employment and purpose they once did, and through this act, we put the Orenian man to work. Thus, by the will of the Imperial Crown, we do henceforth declare the functionaries of growth for the coming years. ROADS AND SAFETY Due to the sprawling nature of the Empire, so ideal for its diversity and expanse of land, trips can be lengthy and often unsafe. Thus, we fund the construction of the greatest railway in recorded history, uniting the Empire with safe and quick commerce and travel, and putting the Orenian veterans to work. There will be four stations to begin with; Helena Station Ves Station Reza Station Avalain Station The Empire will form a state-sponsored company which will orchestrate both the construction and future operation of the railway, including future expansion. This company will partner with Durant Rail Co. CROWNLANDS RESTORATION Helena crumbles around us, thus far surviving a siege and poor upkeep from the previous Emperors. In an effort to organize a city with proper infrastructure, and a symbol of the new Empire, a new city will be built. The castles hugging the walls of Helena shall all be reevaluated, audited, and razed should they be found wanting in proper bannermen, purpose, or proper construction. The laborers hired for the digging and construction of the railway by the developed company shall have more work offered in the form of assisting with this progress. CLERICAL EDUCATION The Empire sees the state of the Mother Church and her lack of clerics, and recognizes that stewardship of the soul is as imperative as stewardship of the land. Thus, it shall sponsor financially any man seeking to be educated under the Church. Direct families of priests and priests themselves will live tax-free in the city of Helena, limited to one property per family. Royal and ducal vassal of the realm shall send to the Church a single man willing to train for the role of priest, in order to bring the word of GOD back to their homes, and further the role of the Mother Church in the care of GOD’s most holy flock. Monsignor Frederick Guillen, Prelate of the Priesthood, shall ensure this law’s proper implementation. REPLENISHING THE TREASURY Due to the horrific mismanagement of Helena and the treasury by the previous regime, the treasury requires replenishment and additional funding in order to pay for this plan. The Empire has elected to charge a one-time tithe from its subjects, including the vassals of direct vassals who otherwise pay homage to a King, Duke or Count. This tithe is to be collected by the Lord State Treasurer. 2000 minas from each King 1500 minas from each Ducal 1000 minas from each Count 500 minas from each Baron PROSPECTIVE PROGRAMS These programs have yet to be promulgated, beyond their bare speculation. Once certain programs are complete, these resources could be directed to these, or other programs. MILITARY EDUCATION The Empire maintains the largest military in the world, but in this time of transition and over the past wars, our veterans have grown old and many have been lost in battle. Thus, the Empire shall sponsor Imperial training programs, including wargames, for officers and warriors of the realm. The greatest military trainers from throughout the Emperor shall be assembled and compensated for their time during these training sessions, which will be subsidized entirely by the Empire. SECULAR EDUCATION The Empire sees the state of its people, often unskilled laborers or veterans, who toil the fields or toil not at all, while our industry and economic size grows with our innovation. Thus, the Empire shall be opening a state-sponsored academy. It shall teach any variety of things, from politics to writing, to art and commerce, and so on. Subjects of the Empire can provide proof of lack of employment will be financed in their secular education by the Empire. THE ALEXANDRIAN GAMES The Empire’s and humanity’s diversity and ambition make us natural competitors. Thus, the Empire sees fit that its subjects should test their mettle not just in combat, but art and athleticism. The Alexandrian Games will be held once every four years in a different City in the Empire, decided by the Emperor each year. The Emperor will not select the same city twice within the course of four Alexandrian Games, or sixteen years, so that every major city in the Kingdom has the opportunity to reap the benefits of such an event. A state-sponsored company will assist in subsidizing the construction of the necessary arenas for the various contests. LABOR SUBSIDY PROGRAM The Empire finds that the people of Orenia’s productivity wavers in the gathering of useful yet common materials. This is due to the lack of market value and ability to sell this material for tradeable currency easily. Thus, the Empire sees fit to officiate a program for the purchase of such goods. The City of Helena shall contain a warehouse by which citizens may deposit their various goods of value; iron, gold, or whatsoever the program requests at that given time. A chest will be assigned per participating citizen. The chests will be emptied and deposited, and the citizen paid a marginal market value of the item, determined at the time the chest is emptied by the officer assigned to the task.
  9. THE SECOND SESSION OF HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY’S REGENCY COUNCIL 1726 As decreed by the Regency Council of the Holy Orenian Empire, on behalf of His Imperial Majesty, Alexander II Stephen. Within this document are those regents which constitute the council, and a roll call, along with the proposals debated and ratified. This session was convened in the City of Ves.

His Grace, Adrian. Present. His Majesty, Andrew III. Present. His Serene Highness, Charles Edward. Absent. I. RATIFICATION OF AMENDMENTS TO THE FENN-OREN-URGUAN PEACE TREATY OF 1725 Raised by His Holiness, Daniel VI. His Excellency, the Archchancellor had returned to the Regency with amended clauses after the Regency had formally voted to renegotiate the treaty the month prior. This debate featured passionate discourse, and in the words of one Mister Jasper, “waxed soliloquy.” After lengthy argument, the Council came to a decision by vote. This proposal failed with a count of four nays to one aye. II. RATIFICATION OF AMENDMENTS TO THE FENN-OREN-URGUAN PEACE TREATY OF 1725 Raised by His Holiness, Daniel VI. After the former amended treaty of His Excellency, the Archchancellor had failed ratification, the Regency took it upon itself to create its own amendments to the treaty, to be presented to the foreign ambassadors for consideration. This proposal was temporarily interrupted by an invasion of ratmen into the Palace. This proposal passed by unanimous vote. III. WITH REGARDS TO IMPERIAL NEUTRALITY IN THE ELVEN CONFLICTS After failure of collective efforts by His Excellency, the Archchancellor to bring the Haelunorian and Fennic parties to a peace summit, the Council voted to declare Imperial neutrality in the brewing elven crisis. This proposal passed by a vote of four ayes to one nay. IV. WITH REGARDS TO THE PETITION OF JOHN ALEXANDER During the session, His Excellency, the Archchancellor received word of a petition by John Alexander, requesting His Imperial Majesty to relinquish and dissolve Kingdom of Renatus. After small debate, the Regency Council voted to politely decline John Alexander’s petition. This petition was denied by unanimous vote. V. THE D’ARKENT MANIFESTO Proposed before the Regency Council by His Excellency, the Archchancellor, the d’Arkent Manifesto has the stated purpose of securing “growth for the coming years” in the project to restore humanity to its former heights, and incentivize prosperity. The following programs of the d’Arkent Manifesto were debated by the Council. Roads and Safety Due to the sprawling nature of the Empire, so ideal for its diversity and expanse of land, trips can be lengthy and often unsafe. Thus, we fund the construction of the greatest railway in recorded history, uniting the Empire with safe and quick commerce and travel, and putting the Orenian veterans to work. There will be four stations to begin with; Helena Station Ves Station Reza Station Avalain Station The Empire will form a state-sponsored company which will orchestrate both the construction and future operation of the railway, including future expansion. This company will partner with Durant Rail Co. Crownlands Reconstruction Helena crumbles around us, thus far surviving a siege and poor upkeep from the previous Emperors. In an effort to organize a city with proper infrastructure, and a symbol of the new Empire, a new city will be built. The castles hugging the walls of Helena shall all be reevaluated, audited, and razed should they be found wanting in proper bannermen, purpose, or proper construction. The laborers hired for the digging and construction of the railway by the developed company shall have more work offered in the form of assisting with this progress. Clerical Education The Empire sees the state of the Mother Church and her lack of clerics, and recognizes that stewardship of the soul is as imperative as stewardship of the land. Thus, it shall sponsor financially any man seeking to be educated under the Church. Direct families of priests and priests themselves will live tax-free in the city of Helena, limited to one property per family. Royal and ducal vassal of the realm shall send to the Church a single man willing to train for the role of priest, in order to bring the word of GOD back to their homes, and further the role of the Mother Church in the care of GOD’s most holy flock. Monsignor Frederick Guillen, Prelate of the Priesthood, shall ensure this law’s proper implementation. Replenishing the Treasury Due to the horrific mismanagement of Helena and the treasury by the previous regime, the treasury requires replenishment and additional funding in order to pay for this plan. The Empire has elected to charge a one-time tithe from its subjects, including the vassals of direct vassals who otherwise pay homage to a King, Duke or Count. 2000 minas from each King 1500 minas from each Ducal 1000 minas from each Count 500 minas from each Baron This proposal passed by a vote of four ayes to one nay. So ended the second session of His Imperial Majesty’s Regency Council.

Expect word to reach you in some time.” The cleric sends Ludolf’s interview down the road to St. Robert’s Abbey, addressed for Monsignor Odus de Jedih. (Fatso_Fleeper, @Padre_Tales, or Shady#6958)
  12. ”I knit this for you.” To his surprise, the stoic young Empress had done something profoundly charitable. Meeting her by chance before the shrine in the Golden City, Daniel hesitantly accepted the gift: an acorn hat, made of a pure violet color, knit by the hands of Adeline. The girl took often to making a cynical, yet childish mockery of his tonsure, calling it a bald spot, to which he characteristically responded that it was an act of mortification. Here she had done what he thought she was nigh incapable of, and the act left an indelible mark upon his heart. In the recovering years following the War of the Two Emperors, Daniel had taken to seeing Adeline as his very own daughter. To his understanding, the war years had left an irrevocable maturity in the young girl, and she had certainly not had many courtiers to teach her in the art of anything besides warfighting and diplomacy. Their very first meeting was when the High Pontiff, then Guy Haas, had joined Othodoric Helvets on diplomatic parley to plead the Renatians for peace. There the pair stood, dumbfounded, as a girl no older than ten coldly gave them welcome. On the trip, Guy had taken to noting that many in the Imperial Court were of Adeline’s age – and yet she would later lament to him personally that she was incapable of making a single friend out of the lot. As the war years passed, and people new the uncomfortable peace that followed, Adeline had taken to making additional trips to Varoche Palace. Daniel himself began to see the young girl, frigid as she was, to be his very own ward child. He brought her in tow to meetings of the Curia, he tutored her in the histories of men, and tried to some result to impart what religion he could into her. In the High Pontiff’s eyes, the future of humanity stood before him in a young lady’s court dress, and he would not let her fall further under the influences of the increasingly weak Cascadian court. In their later days, the young Empress now Empress-Dowager, had taken to laughter and shy smile. It was enough for him. Within the halls of Varoche, the news of the tragedy reached Daniel by morning. Not one to air out publicly the more melancholic thoughts which torture poets, he dismissed the Curia, and took with broken spirit to his bedchambers. That would be the last they would see him for some time.
