  1. ALEKSANDRPLATZ IV - Royal City of New Valdev - Situated in the Capital of the Kingdom of Haense, the Tipsy Tarchar is the official tavern of the Haeseni state and is run by the approved proprietor. This tavern sports three floors with a beer hall and outdoor seating on the bottom, more private tables and booths above, and at the top a range of fully furnished rooms available for rent. MENU DRINKS: BIHAR BREW - Named in honour of the ruling Royal House of Barbanov-Bihar, Bihar Brew is a more modern drink than the others on sale. This beer is derived from fermented wheat harvested just outside the very walls of New Valdev in Waltonburg, stabilised and embittered with local gruit, a combination of herbs readily found in the North. Relatively inoffensive and smooth, Bihar Brew goes down easy. - 2 mina CARRION BLACK - The principal drink in Haense with its origins dating back nearly six hundred years ago to the Kingdom of Ruska. Undeniably this dark ale-like drink is the most popular order amongst the Haeseni people. - 2 mina ESTERIAN WHISKEY - A single malt whiskey containing a smokey nut and chocolate aroma caused by the peat fires used to dry the malted barley and stored for a minimum of twelve years. It was brewed and sold extensively in Haense after the Estermont-Bihar Trade Act, seeing the House of Estermont become a vital trade partner of the Royal Family. It has been a highly sought after whiskey ever since. - 3 mina FIERY WORM VODKA - At the bottom of each and every shot and bottle is a small worm and the drink is intended to be lit on fire before being consumed. The presentation and manner of drinking this vodka is a reference to the famous story of Saint Karl’s explosive death in Athera. Burningly strong, a shot or, for the especially brave, a bottle is sure to warm the body and make for merry times. - 2 mina HONEY MEAD - Exceedingly popular amongst those of Scyfling descent due to its ancient northern origins, dated back before even the Atheran Nord Lords’ time. First created by flooding beehives, the process is far more refined now and consists of mixing harvested and fermented honey with water. Naturally sparkling and semi-sweet. - 2 mina ILYA VINTAGE - A white wine, originally brewed by the proprietor of the Old Stout Crow Pub, Tarathiel Asul’onn, in Almaris. The pale yellow coloured wine is contained in a green tinted glass bottle and sealed with a golden wax. This chardonnay has a smooth buttercream, oaky vanilla and maple sugar taste topped off with a spot of cinnamon. - 3 mina LUDVIK ANIZ - A red wine, originally brewed by the Sunlit Brewery. It is now the most common form of red wine which had for centuries eluded the Haeseni people. Thankfully the Haeseni elves, knowing more of the tropical and southern alcohols, did share their fantastic wine with the North. A balance of sour, bitter and sweet elements, excellent for any wine enthusiast or simply for anyone. - 3 mina THE KOENG’S NIPPLE - A shot of liquor paired with rich strawberry cream. Originally created by the princess-consort Franziska for her infamous Raev House club. Its name is a joke based on the centuries old tradition of the Haeseni monarch having their nipple pierced as part of their coronation. It is typically drunk as an unofficial means of wishing the King good fortune and health. - 2 mina Non-Alcoholic: GOATS MILK - Introduced during the time of the Colborn proprietors, this more sour milk stayed as the abstinent were needing a drink. In a surprise twist it turns out it is rather good at remedying a bout of indigestion. - 1 mina HOT COCOA - Coming in a wooden mug, this hot cocoa is a particularly delicious creamy drink with a mix of chocolates. Topped off with a swirl of whipped cream and a sprinkle of just a pinch of cinnamon. Perfect for those just out of the cold and looking for a bit of respite. - 2 mina - - - FOOD: BEEF STROGANOV [quarter stack of steak] - Sautéed pieces of beef with mushroom served in a mustard and smetana, a sour cream sauce. Originally created for the Ruskan royal family, it is now a rather commonplace dish everywhere. - 5 mina RAEV BORSCHT [1 beetroot soup] - An ancient recipe that has proven popular throughout the ages. Distinctive in its red colour due to the beetroots but it also contains a plethora of ingredients such as boiled beef and pork with julienned cabbage, carrots, parsnips, onions and tomatoes as well as diced potatoes to boot. - 3 mina MARIZBRUD (Marian Bread) [quarter stack of bread] - The basic form of bread in Haense. It differs from other variations for its distinct use of local honey and a pinch of vanir salt in the bake but is also served with a side portion of them too for making it more savoury or sweet to the person’s preference. - 1 mina PERPETUAL STEW [1 suspicious stew] - A pot into which whatever one can find is placed and cooked continuously. The pot is never or rarely emptied all the way, and ingredients and liquid are replenished as needed. Such foods can continue cooking for months upon months or years even. [The customer rolls and the number determines the quality of that day’s stew] - 2 mina EVENTS & TRADITIONS The Tipsy Tarchar boasts a wide variety of traditions from its previous iterations as well as newer ones that bring a liveliness and constant buzz to the atmosphere at the tavern that’s a staple of Haeseni culture for a reason. Some of our more famous events are, but not limited to: DRINKING COMPETITIONS - A long standing tradition and popular event the world over. Competitors take part in the tavern run contest for who can finish their drink the quickest in subsequent back to back rounds. The slowest participant in each round is eliminated until there are only two left. From then on the final two will each drink from the coveted PRINZEN’S ABSINTHE bottle with the winner taking it home. This bottle can only be obtained by winning an official Tipsy Tarchar drinking competition and is stamped with the year. BARE-KNUCKLE BOXING - While not strictly illegal it is certainly not high brow and often frowned upon. Here at the Tipsy Tarchar we see it for what it is - entertainment! Taking place in an undisclosed location that’s revealed when and if fights are happening, there are drinks served, betting and a monetary prize for the bare-knuckle champion. COMING OF AGE DRINKS - Though we in Haense do not have an official drinking age it is generally accepted as being in the 16-18 years old range. Coinciding with a Haeseni’s ascent into adulthood we at the Tipsy Tarchar wish to celebrate it with alcohol. When someone comes of age we offer a discount package of all our drinks so that the newly minted adult can test each and every one so they can determine where their tastes lie early. [Roll when you try each drink and the result determines which drink is the favourite, middling or down right terrible choice to your character] INN The Tipsy Tarchar Tavern & Inn boasts a warm and inviting atmosphere perfect for any person new to the City of New Valdev or indeed just passersby. There are six rooms total that provide the basic necessities. The rooms are subsidised by the Office of the Grand Maer on specific renting terms. New workers and citizens of Haense are welcome to stay for a period of time, free of charge, until they can find their feet in the booming city. Find and speak to the tavern’s current proprietor Yuri Ostrov (@Nolan_ | CheekyNolan) or any other barkeep for room availability. EMPLOYMENT The Tipsy Tarchar Tavern & Inn is open to peoples of any race or creed as long as they are willing to work hard. Regardless of experience we only ask for a positive attitude and the ambition to sell food and drinks and lots of it. A perfect starter job for people new to New Valdev and indeed could become a lifelong profession if you’ve the mind for it. Contact the tavern’s current proprietor Yuri Ostrov (@Nolan_ | CheekyNolan) or any other barkeep if you are interested.
  2. A TOAST TO VALDEV AND A SCREW YOU TO THE COMET SAINT KARL’S SQUARE - Royal City of Valdev - LORDS & LADIES, SERS & DAMES, BROTHERS & SISTERS, For one night and one night only (not out of choice of course but on account of the giant comet on a destructive path for the city), the Bards & Bottles Tavern is to have one final night of fun and drinking where there are NO RULES and everything is FREE. Smash as many glasses as you please, punch any hole in any wall you like as long as you are sending the tavern off in typical Haeseni fashion. If that was not enough incentive for you then know we’ll be testing out the first batch of our new menu of drinks to be properly launched in whatever will replace Bards & Bottles after Comet Lesanov has ‘wiped the slate clean’. Know as well that there will be a final drinking competition but with the prestigious prize of a bottle of PRINZEN’S ABSINTHE for the winner, a drink that can only be won in Haense’s official tavern! Come with us and after all is said, partied and done, help us close this chapter on our fair city of Valdev. Toast to Koeng, Koenas and country and smash those drinks onto the ground before we set the place alight; literally. After all, why should the comet get to have all the fun? FREE DRINKS. NEW PRIZES. ARSON WITH NO CONSEQUENCES. THIS SAINT’S DAY ONLY

PONTIFICAL LETTER OF THE HIGH PONTIFF XYSTUS QUINTUS MORTEM PONTIFICUS DEATH OF THE PONTIFF HIS HOLINESS SIXTUS V, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Archbishop of Visigia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Missionary to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD. "And now, the waters of Gamesh spill even into the Void, so the ash of sin is mingled with them, and the World is born again. And no place is forbidden to those perfected in the eyes of God, for the wicked are vanquished forever." (Auspice 3:9-10) Most Beloved Brethren, Health and Pontifical Benediction. We announce with due reverence and the utmost sadness that the High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon has passed away in his sleep with spoon in hand this last day. In the time between now and the gathering of the College of Cardinals to select amongst the clergy a successor to arise as the next Vicar of God, the Church of the Canon shall be administered by the Vice-Chancellor Arnaud Cardinal Albarosa.

  5. To the Friedrichian Band, We appreciate those zealous in the pursuit of God's will and understand the wish to aid all of Canondom but be wary not to extend beyond your own reach or assume your own virtue compared to an entire city. We trust that there has been some form of misunderstanding on your part pertaining to the agreement struck between Our Holy Mother Church and the State of Lurin. We did not march on the city rather we had arranged the time to discuss the appropriate measures to be taken to rid the state of darkspawn and those swayed by Iblees to which the Silver Lubba agreed with Our representative there, Arnaud Cardinal Albarosa. The deal struck was that appointed members of Our and the Curia's choosing shall be permitted to operate with and at times independently in the State of Lurin to conduct actions against Xionists and other corrupt spawn of the defiler Iblees. The Friedrichian Band was neither approved by Us or a member of the Curia to act on Our behalf in these matters nor is it a Holy Order permitted by Us in the service of the Almighty wholly. Therefore you have acted outside of Our wishes and most assuredly not as Our representatives in these delicate affairs. Do not assume to command the start of a Crusade that need not be while there are avenues still available that can save the lives of innocents and devout Canonists alike. Calm yourselves and seek Our permission before acting in Our name. When it is possible, We will always take the path that the most number of virtuous can walk alongside Us on. Signed, Pontifex Maximus Xystus Quintus

  7. PONTIFICAL LETTER OF THE HIGH PONTIFF XYSTUS QUINTUS BEATUS NUNTIUS IN SEMITA HAPPY TIDINGS ON THE PATH HIS HOLINESS SIXTUS V, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Archbishop of Visigia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Missionary to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD. "And so I have placed into your hearts the blessings of abundance: the virtuous wealth of the spirit. And as I have given to you this blessing of My Word, you shall also give unto your fellows." (Virtue 2:5-6) Most Beloved Brethren, Health and Pontifical Benediction. We write this letter to relay Our journey once more from Our stay in the Archdiocese of Albarosa last year this time. We were blessed with good company immediately when we arrived in the city square of Whitespire in the Kingdom of Aaun in the form of His Grace Bishop Michael, Prince Heinrich of Merryweather, his wife Princess Aleksandra and a remarkable golem that seemed to help the people any way it could. When the golem learned of who We were throughout the progression of the conversion it bestowed unto Us a diamond which We are most grateful and appreciative for and wish to let those who would be so kind as to inform it know that We put it to good use, gifting it to those less fortunate than Us. We also had the opportunity to meet a Canonist dwarf by the name of Ahti who had been missing for nearly three centuries and is a remnant of the Order of Saint Lucien following the Third Crusade. It was a great privilege to speak to someone with such first hand experience and to see that their faith still remains strong even after all their hardships and missing years. At the same time We were most fortunate to happen across Our humble scribe, Cunimund hal'Cingedoz. For those who are unaware, he has copied each of Our Pontifical Letters within a Saint’s day or two of publishing for better spreading amongst the faithful flock. He was a most welcoming and warm man who We could and cannot thank enough for all his hard work, even extending himself to copying manuscripts for Our libraries across Canondom. We have noticed he has made a petition to the Royal Diet in Aaun for more space to continue his work in a proper scriptorium. We cannot express enough how dutiful and hard working this man is. We are thankful to have him and his work ethic is nothing short of exceptional. He truly encapsulates how one might perfectly oppose themselves to slothfulness in accordance with the most virtuous path we all aspire to walk without fault. We were also delighted to bear witness to the most holy of ceremonies, the rite of matrimony between a loving pair, in this case between Sir Victor Halcourt and Dame Cécilia d'Amaury overseen by His Grace Bishop Callahan. It took place underneath a giant, forever autumn tree growing just outside of the Commonwealth of Petra which’s beauty cannot be understated and most assuredly is one of those God given places for Us to enjoy; a reminder of what the entirety of the Skies must look like for the virtuous. It brought to mind the Canticle of Charity, “I am the Lord GOD without peer. I created the metals of the earth, and the onyx and the alabaster, and placed within your groves the trees of incense and resin,”. We must thank the happy couple for permitting Us witness such a special occasion and for giving Us the opportunity to once more reflect on why We do what We do and what made Us pick this life in the first place. We must also show Our appreciation to the Bishop himself as well as Father Elim and the Deacon who accompanied them for it was them who invited Us on the husband and wife’s behalf. We wish you all the luck in this lush, Almighty given world of ours by His grace. Finally on Our stay in the fair heartlander Kingdom We were graced with the opportunity to witness and be toured around the site of Lemon Hill, a church holding operated jointly by Mother Lorina, Ser Morgan of Angren, and Bishop Callahan. It is truly a wonder to behold and a perfect example of how one of these communes might operate in conjunction with Our Holy Mother Church. The harmony between the two has brought many into the fold and encouraged a new generation of those devoted to the best that our faith and Church has to offer and We are most excited to see what greatness the place might produce. We would encourage any who have not spoken to members of Lemon Hill or seen it themselves to most definitely set some time aside to. Both the Reverend Mother and His Grace were incredibly helpful in providing information and suggesting ways in which We might approach the implementation of certain magics in accordance with the Scrolls and Canon Law as part of Our wider Pontifical Commission. Truly they have given new emphasis and holiness to the pastoral activity of Our Church and We pray they can continue to provide such for Our flock in all the years to come. In short, We cannot express the happiness and gratitude We feel over seeing our faith flourish without stop within the Archdiocese of Albarosa. The people welcomed us with open arms and inspired Us to continue to be better in serving them because We have seen what truly wonderful things they can accomplish when the faith is properly administered. We expect much of the same experience in Our stay that’s already begun within the Archdiocese of Lotharia this year. ☩DEO NON FORTUNA☩ BY GOD NOT LUCK
  8. PONTIFICAL LETTER OF THE HIGH PONTIFF XYSTUS QUINTUS SATUS AD ITER LAETUM A JOYOUS START TO THE PATH HIS HOLINESS SIXTUS V, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Archbishop of Visigia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Missionary to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD. "I am the Lord God without peer, and My Word is the holy word, and My path is the virtuous path, and all the blessings of the Virtue shall fall before the righteous who tread it." (Virtue 1:9) Most Beloved Brethren, Health and Pontifical Benediction. We write this letter to relay Our journey thus far since beginning on Our goal of serving every one of the faithful across all of Canondom in a manner befitting God’s vicar. We began our yearly visits within the Archdiocese of Artorus, spending the majority of Our time within the Capital of the Kingdom of Númendil, Númenost, colloquially known as the White City. We were privileged to speak with many of the populace and host Mass on the topic of Saint Edmond of Lachsin and his patronage, knights and hospitality - which We find representative of Our time amongst the devout people of Númendil for the honour and hospitality they showed Us. We were pleased to be able to relate the story of the reverent Saint to the lives of those living there and the positive response and insightful questions that We received, aside from the one relating to the use of crossbows that confused Us, were very affirming that We are on the right course of action and We thank and pray to the Almighty that Our continued journey proves as fruitful as its start. We encourage those who were present to remember the lessons and indeed who else may be reading this to do the same. Remember to live one's life on the virtuous path even when your peers may pressure you otherwise for that is when true piety is exemplified, it is proven when it is tested and you remain resolute in maintaining the path to the Skies. The knights of the realms can often become lost, the training and fighting taking its toll and diverting the mind but it is then that it is most important to remember to live and commit your life to the protection of the innocent, honour and display God given hospitality to those who need it. Let us not forget that it is of paramount importance to not only adhere to God’s teachings but also to guide and epitomise it to others who might also be brought onto the correct and true path. We had many pleasant and fruitful conversations with many there, including with the King, or Tar, himself that aided Us very much in understanding how we might approach the matter of magic and Templars within Our Pontifical Commission as well as understanding his humble origins and his piety in forging his faithful realm. We thank the King for his time and patience with Us. Among others We also took great delight in the petition for a blessing from Siegemaster Bedwyr who We were happy to have seen knighted soon after in Our visit. He gifted Us a key meant to be bestowed only to those entrusted with the defence of the great city; a poignant reminder of Our duty to the Canonist people. It is a gift We carry with Us and intend to leave to Our successors so they too might remember the righteous duty We have the God given and anointed pleasure of conducting. We must thank the people within the Archdiocese of Artorus for their kindness, openness and generosity they exhibited to Us on Our stay and will eternally be glad to return and hear from them whenever. We are currently on Our yearly stay within the next Archdiocese on Our itinerary, Albarosa, and expect very much the same God being willing. ☩DEO NON FORTUNA☩ BY GOD NOT LUCK
  9. BREVE CONSTITUTIONIS WRIT OF APPOINTMENT FOR THE PATRIARCHATE OF JORENUS AND THE DIOCESE OF BURON HIS HOLINESS SIXTUS V, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Archbishop of Visigia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Missionary to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD. Most Beloved Brethren, Health and Pontifical Benediction. Long has the Patriarchate of Jorenus been vacant since Our enthronement but yet We are hopeful for the future and continued shepherding of the diocese by the current and up-and-coming members of the clergy. To most effectively administer the Patriarchate, We can no longer allow it to remain in Sede Vacante and have found a most reverent and capable replacement who by the will of God will be entrusted with this most sacred duty. It is through Our Apostolic Right, bestowed unto Us through the Laurel derived from the Exalted that We have chosen Father Josef @Pureimp10 to be consecrated and elevated to Patriarch of Jorenus. May he guide his flock diligently and soberly. The Pontificate wishes him the best in his newfound responsibility. The Archdiocese of Albarosa has in recent years boasted an incredible presence and number of the clergy. We thank God for such prosperity and efficient shepherding of the faithful and for the number of outstanding diligent and pious members of Our flock. Long has a Bishop to administer the Diocese of Buron been on Our mind and We now rest easy believing We have come to the most prudent answer. An effective member of the clergy and a well known and trusted figure for his God given kindness and devotion, We are assured that this appointment is a beneficial and well deserved one. It is through Our Apostolic Right, bestowed unto Us through the Laurel derived from the Exalted that We have chosen Father Michael @LightTheTrainer to be consecrated and elevated to Bishop of Buron. May he guide his flock diligently and soberly. The Pontificate wishes him the best in his newfound responsibility. ☩DEO NON FORTUNA☩ BY GOD NOT LUCK
  10. PONTIFICAL LETTER OF THE HIGH PONTIFF XYSTUS QUINTUS PONTIFICEM PER OMNEM CANONATUS THE PONTIFF ACROSS ALL CANONDOM HIS HOLINESS SIXTUS V, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Archbishop of Visigia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Missionary to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD. "He entrusted to them the Word of GOD, which were the Virtue and the Spirit, and charged them to instruct their brethren in the path of holiness." (Gospel 5:4) Most Beloved Brethren, Health and Pontifical Benediction. Long has there been unrest within Canondom and it has dominated much of Our time following the arrival on the bountiful continent of Aevos. Yet peace has prevailed and the heretics who would undermine the teachings of God and His Holy Mother Church will imminently be removed from all God fearing lands and brought to heel. With such We find it prudent to review how We might better serve the faithful all across Aevos and thus We have resolved to commit Ourself to extensive tours of each Archdiocese and pray to the Almighty for the strength and conviction to see it through for the betterment of all Our flock. To better spread the message of God and allow the people to seek Us out for whatever needs and petitions they may have, We pledge to rotate Our residency every year to each of the Archdiocese; those being the Holy See the Patriarchate of Jorenus, and the Archdiocese of Artorus, Albarosa, and Lotharia. On Our stays in each, We resolve to perform Mass, allow for confessionals overseen by Ourself, perform blessings and the handing out of alms to the hungry and devout in the streets as well as offering Our personal tutelage to the laity as well as any prospective or existing wards and acolytes of Our Holy Mother Church. We will began this undertaking immediately this same Saint's day and the itinerary for the Pontifical visits is as follows: I. Archdiocese of Artorus II. Archdiocese of Albarosa III. Archdiocese of Lotharia IV. The Holy See, the Patriarchate of Jorenus We would also remind the faithful of Our open Commission, ‘Magicus, Augurum et Incantatio’, into the source and use of most forms of magic. We encourage those who are knowledgeable in such or in their application within Canon Law to come forth and meet with Us while We are in your nations. ☩DEO NON FORTUNA☩ BY GOD NOT LUCK

"So I find that you seek impossible knowledge not for the good of your fellows, or precious wisdom, but in the desire of power. Indeed, this is an insatiable desire, for none can overcome the Lord." (Spirit 7:11-12) Most Beloved Brethren, Health and Pontifical Benediction. The use of magic was once held in contempt and mistrust at the warning of the Scroll of Spirit and for centuries this was misunderstood as the outright forbidding of all magic in Canondom, a misconception that has begun to be realised. While strides have been made in accommodating and permitting magic and the ethical use of it within the confines of God’s teachings and Canon Law, there remains a lack of proper ordinance and strict mandates on what is and is not sanctioned by the Church of the Canon. To create such requires the Curia and Us be properly informed in all aspects of all magic, augury, enchantments and anything else considered mystical or occult. If any have knowledge on any form of magic, including the coined ‘Voidal’ magic, ‘clericlism’, templarism, enchantments of any kind, golemancy, and others, We urge you to reach out by letter, book or arranging a meeting with Us or one of Our Cardinals, in particular His Eminence Anontius Cardinal Artorus (@shady here). Likewise We encourage the same for any learned laypeople or theologians who wish to make recommendations based on reasonable facts for how We might regulate or permit certain magics. We pray to God that he might bless Us and those who would aid Us in this endeavour with wisdom and intelligence for this great undertaking. We would have any who know or are themselves the leaders of magical orders to contact Us so We might arrange a time to meet and discuss the functioning, source and use of said magic. ☩DEO NON FORTUNA☩ BY GOD NOT LUCK

PATRIARCHATE OF JORENUS, THE HOLY SEE Encompassing the entirety of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska & the Kingdom of Norland, to be shepherded by High Pontiff Sixtus V until such a time as a Patriarch or Matriarch is appointed. ARCHDIOCESE OF ALBAROSA Encompassing the eastern region of Aevos, including the lands of the United Kingdom of Aaun and Archduchy of Petra, to be shepherded by Archbishop Arnaud Cardinal Albarosa. ARCHDIOCESE OF ARTORUS Encompassing the central region of Aevos, including the lands of the Kingdom of Númendil and the Duchy of Adria, to be shepherded by Archbishop Antonius Cardinal Artorus. ARCHDIOCESE OF LOTHARIA Encompassing the south-western region of Aevos, including the lands of the Kingdom of Balian, to be shepherded by Archbishop Armand Cardinal Lotharia. The following Diocese shall be reconstructed and established so that Our church may be better and more efficiently managed by the accordingly appointed shepherds: DIOCESE OF KARENINA Encompassing the northern half of the Patriarchate of Jorenus, currently in Sede Vacante. DIOCESE OF ROSEBUD Encompassing the southern half of the Patriarchate of Jorenus, currently in Sede Vacante. DIOCESE OF BURON Encompassing the eastern half of the Archdiocese of Albarosa, to be shepherded by Archbishop Arnaud Cardinal Albarosa. DIOCESE OF GELIMAR Encompassing the western half of the Archdiocese of Albarosa, including the lands of the Grand Principality of Minitz and the Archduchy of Petra, to be shepherded by Callahan Bishop Gelimar. DIOCESE OF AQUILA Encompassing the entirety of the Kingdom of Númendil, to be shepherded by Archbishop Antonius Cardinal Artorus. DIOCESE OF TYRIA Encompassing the entirety of the Kingdom of Balian, to be shepherded by Bishop Teodosio Cardinal Tyria. SECTION V - EXCOMMUNICATION We whose duty, granted by Apostolic right, is to shepherd the flock of God entrust the members of Our clergy with parts of that flock. They in turn are responsible for the well-being and nurturing of their community’s faith, a task entrusted to them not only by Us but also by God. They serve as an extension and member of Us, and to inflict harm upon one of them is to inflict harm upon Us. There are very few sins greater than this, to attempt to harm a member of Our clergy and faithful servant of God, yet there have been numerous attempts and instances of such. Implicit in the murder of an unknown priest in the then Duchy of Minitz, the body was mutilated beyond recognition but witnesses from within the city attested to an accomplice in the killing wearing the sigil of House von Draco. Long has House von Draco also associated with the vile scourge the Azdrazi, an affront to God Himself. Dealt with by the Holy Inquisition and other faithful Canonists beyond, a number of House von Draco’s members have been positively identified as Azdrazi and Heralds of Azdromoth. Senior Church officials, including a number of the Curia, were witness to this evidence that brought validity to the claims of this association. No longer will We permit known Azdrazi and sympathisers to corrupt and inflict harm upon the Canonist realms who look to Us for guidance. Therefore, We, the Pontificate and Most Holy College of Cardinals, declared that the ‘House of von Draco’ shall be branded EXCOMMUNICATE and ANATHEMA. They are spiritually amputated from Our Holy Canonist Church and the Society of all Canonists. They are to be shunned, evicted, and brought to justice if captured by any and all settlements who claim union with the Holy Church of the Canon. Having come before Us and submitted themselves willingly to Our judgement at the Holy See and found to still hold reverence for God in their heart as well as being absent from the many crimes of the rest of their family, Cassius von Draco and his children are not branded excommunicate and anathema. As We said that members of Our clergy serve as an extension and member of Us and their responsibilities include tending to their flocks by Our and God’s entrustment in them. The man known as Jonathan of Adria has usurped this God-given order of ours, the superiority of ecclesiastical rank established in the time of Exalted Owyn himself and a critical part in the functioning of the Holy Church. Declaring the creation of an illegitimate Archdiocese and appointing himself Archbishop and Cardinal of it on no one’s authority but his own is a flagrant disregard for the will of God and Canon Law. As is explicit in the Codex Iurius Canonici Danielus Pontifex, otherwise known commonly as the Codex of the Law Canon, to be in such flagrant disregard of it automatically incurs excommunication. Thus, We, the Pontificate confirm and assert that ‘Jonathan of Adria’ is to be branded EXCOMMUNICATE and ANATHEMA. They will be spiritually amputated from the Canonist Church and Canonist societies until such a time should come that they submit themselves to Our judgement at the Holy See and repent of their sins to receive ablution to be granted by Us should they come as a sincere and penitent seeker of God. SECTION VI - ANNULMENTS AND DISSOLUTIONS We write this declaration in accordance with the excommunication of the House of von Draco and having been petitioned by Lady Adelajda vas Ruthern on the matter. We have come to the conclusion that her union cannot continue. Therefore, We declare that the union between Adelajda vas Ruthern and Loran von Draco dissolved, on account of the latter’s excommunication from Our holy church. We wish Lady Ruthern good fortune in the future and give her permission to engage in the holy sacrament of matrimony once more if she wishes to do so. SECTION VII - PONTIFICAL COMMISSION We have long heard common misconceptions and division amongst Our clergy and faithful laypeople alike on the interpretation of the Holy Scrolls on the matter of magic, voidal and otherwise. This topic is of great interest to Us, but We mean to learn more on the subject before We are to commit to reforms of any kind. We are wanting most to gather enough knowledge on the sources, maintenance and usage of these magicks so We might concretely state once and for all what is and is not permitted within Canondom and in accordance with the Almighty’s teachings. We shall form a Pontifical Commission to study on Our behalf and deliver to Us information and recommendations for the future on all forms of magic. We shall lead this commission Ourselves with the aid of Our honourable Prelate of the Clergy, Antonius Cardinal Artorus, and grant him authority to appoint to this commission whomever he desires. May God bless him and the other commissioners with wisdom and intelligence for this undertaking. Any and all information may be sent to Us or Antonius Cardinal Artorus, or a meeting may be arranged. We earnestly encourage all faithful with any knowledge or recommendations based on fact and Canon Law and the Holy Scrolls to be in contact. SECTION VIII - VENERATION Through Our Apostolic Authority, and with the approval of a majority of the College of Cardinals, We venerate the following: VENERABLE ARTORUS ELENDIL Made venerable for having been a pious and just Adunian throughout his life and reign as Duke of Westfall. Last of the legitimate Adunian Lords and great converter of the Adunian peoples as well as companion of Exalted Godfrey.

Stalwart in their defence of the Church of the Canon during the Sedan Reaction and one-third of the leaders of the Canonist League.
