VICTOR’S VERSES Volume I “The Lighthouse” Distributed by Halcourt Publishing Co. 17th of Horen’s Calling, 1782 Entry I “Varoche Hall” On the inception and foundation of our new Empire As represented by the “lighthouse of liberty, “ Varoche Hall Note: Godfrey is a nod to the old ways (pure feudalism) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ We built Joseph’s Empire Over the graves of nobility We laid the first brick In the ruins of the Old City Next we rebuilt the throne And there, in its place We laid a cornerstone For a nation’s workspace We erected a new temple A shining beacon A capitoline fortress But it was just an example A marble deacon A lighthouse to fluoresce As the fire of liberty burned higher We surrendered our authority For we built our new Empire O’er the ashes of Godfrey __________________________________________ Entry II “Yesteryear’s Josephite” A story of the failed liberal revolution of Joseph Marna Based on recollections from my grandfather, a Josephite who fought in the failed Siege of Helena at the end of the war _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Dust to dust We crumble like rust Social decay The price that we pay It's a cost for our conquest We lost but we progressed It'll suffice for the moment But remember what we dreamt For we're revolutionaries But they'll cast us as rebels My friends, stand at ease For the final ringing of the bells Raise a white flag o'er the ramparts Dream no more of the barricade Let there be no more bleeding hearts This is the disbansion of our brigade Our aim was social reformation To tame a broken institution Our game was total sublimation The blame is in our own possession If your hope is to fight on Begone from these halls If you hope for an august dawn Flee far from these walls This is my farewell I am a sailor aboard a sinking ship I hope you fare well And I pray you avoid the whip Farewell O, farewell Farewell O, farewell __________________________________________ Entry III “Rest In Piss” On the tyrants of the Pertinax dynasty _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Your gravestones will be defaced Thoroughly pissed on so often That your corpses float to the surface Then your story will be forgotten As history continues to march ever onward Not even a footnote for someone so rotten Finally, your legacy will be only this poem Written that we all might remember Once, you could have been different __________________________________________ Entry IV “Titans” My first thoughts upon becoming a Cabinet Secretary _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ I have no words I am made small Before these giants Standing so tall __________________________________________ Entry V “The Tapestry” A tribute to Simon Basrid’s idea: the Tapestry of Man _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Ours is not a melting pot Do not buy this lie they taught It is a tapestry of intersectionality A beautiful painting of our propinquity It captures the essence of all our hearts While maintaining its component parts The goal is not assimilation Put simply, it is cohabitation That we might escape our restraints And live in the land of the saints Authored by Mr. Victor Clement Halcourt
  9. A letter is shared with Simon, sent via courier. @Cracker Mr. Basrid, Upon hearing of your retirement, I felt provoked to write a poem. Your long and dedicated career, and your repeated reinforcement of this beautiful idea – the Tapestry of Man – compelled me to capture this in prose. __________________________________________ “The Tapestry” A tribute to Simon Basrid’s idea: the Tapestry of Man _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Ours is not a melting pot Do not buy this lie they taught It is a tapestry of intersectionality A beautiful painting of our propinquity It captures the essence of all our hearts While maintaining its component parts The goal is not assimilation Put simply, it is cohabitation That we might escape our restraints And live in the land of the saints You have rendered upon the canvas of history an entire corner of the Tapestry of Man, Mr. Basrid. I pray the next generation of artists will possess a similar talent. To Providence indeed. Your friend, Victor Clement Halcourt
  10. Dear sir, It dawned on me just now that you were the nice young man that I had met with in my office. What a wonderful coincedence. But as for your apology, friend --- all is well. I understand. The passions of youth can cloud even the greatest judgement. Sifting through the complexity and confusion of our interconnected world is a difficult task. Even harder is deriving valuations of justice or injustice from the chaos we see in our day to day lives. Please stay vigilant and continue to hold us, your leaders, to account. I have pulled your application and reviewed it personally. Welcome aboard. At your earliest convenience you may report to my office at Varoche Hall. We will begin the onboarding and you may start work as an Imperial Archivist. As an extra project, I will have you assist me in converting the old orphanage into dormitories for the Imperial University. These dormitories will be available for orphans and students alike, offering central and convenient housing to youth in need. I will personally finance a scholarship to this end. I look forward to working with you. Sincerely yours, Secretary Halcourt
  11. A public statement is made available through the Office of the Secretary of State for Civil Affairs. In addition, a letter is dispatched via courier to the petitioner with an exact copy. A job application is also enclosed. [Click here to apply.] Dear sir, The Ministry of Civil Affairs petitioned the Secretary of the Interior for an office building. This is standard procedure as the Interior regulates property ownership in the Crownlands. Numerous other Cabinet Ministries and government agencies are afforded physical office buildings such as the Chancellery, the Interior Ministry, the Justice Ministry, the Imperial Diet, the Imperial State Army, etc. The Secretary of the Interior Edward Galbraith spoke with the church and noted that the church no longer used or managed the orphanage; it had been unused, empty, and abandoned for a period of many years. As a result, the church returned the building to the property of the government. This had the blessing of the Pontiff himself, to my understanding. From there, we were offered the space. Orphanage records show that in the course of three or four decades, a maximum of three orphans ever applied for or were lodged within the orphanage. It was literally never used. We have verified this personally with the former caretaker of the orphanage, Mr. George Galbraith. These orphans have been grown for a decade or so. Given the prime location of this real estate, it was afforded a more fitting use. All that being said, I myself am an orphan. I recognize the importance of care for our most vulnerable population – care that I was never afforded. After years fending for myself, I was reunited with my distant cousins and found normalcy, but I spent my early years on the streets of Helena. Regardless, this program was unsuccessful. I offer an alternative: the University of Helena. Any orphan who is in need of shelter may contact me posthaste. I will provide for them free of charge a dormitory in the Imperial University. There, they may not only be housed and fed, but indeed, they might earn an education that will help them escape their earthly station. Thank you for your concern. Please consider redirecting your vitriol in future. There are far more serious issues to address. Nevertheless, I laud your concern and your civic duty. If you have interest, please consider applying to my Ministry. We could use someone like you to help resolve issues like these. If an orphanage matters so dearly to you, I would be happy to hire you to found a new orphanage – an endeavor I could personally bankroll. Perhaps under your stewardship, such a program could be more well utilized and have a greater impact. Your obedient servant,
  12. The nature of roleplay is that it requires people. This requirement creates a need for some sort of centralization. Because of this, nations with access to a steady playerbase tend to significantly centralize their roleplay. That ensures that regardless of when you log on, you can probably find someone at the tavern or church or town hall to roleplay with. Small towns are antithetical to this level of activity and in fact do the opposite. When populations are further distributed in small or rural settlements, ultimately players log on and do not find people around. When they do this, they become disengaged and inactive. This contributes to a great deal of total current players, but a small amount of activity generated from those players. We saw this in many previous maps. Modern staff policies and even decisions made by nation leaders reinforce the efficacy of centralization. Decentralization is a cancer on the back of an active roleplaying experience and it is important we stop using this rhetoric.
