  1. Robyn would hear news of his old friend's death, frowning as his mind would swim back through the many decades of good memories, from children in Petra going on adventures or sparring, to their young days in Balian fighting darkspawn and Mori and speaking of life, to their wars against the Mori, the coming to Almaris and the politics and friendships continued on to their latter days. He'd mutter under his breath "Cas, Albert, Elena...all gone...August and I are all that is left..." He'd think fondly of his old friends as he'd take a sip of wine from Enderoca, looking out over the waters towards the city on the horizon, and then over the beach to Valio "Times are changing...years have gone on...I shall see them and all the rest soon enough..."
  2. Le Transfert de la Fierté ‘The Transfer of the Pride’ The Enderoca Succession | 12th of Peter’s Glory, 112 BA It has been the greatest honor of my life to take on the charge of my father - despite the horrid circumstances that shall ever grieve me - and to see his dreams of the name De Lyons bearing weight once more fulfilled. To serve this Kingdom, as Magister, Peer, Gran Don, Knight, and Scribe, for many long years, has been fulfilling and a pleasure. To see the land grow in strength, justice, vibrancy, and respect. To see the defeat of those who threatened the peace and freedom of humanity, and the relative peace in our time - at least among Canondom - that has been wrought. However, age brings its dullness and lethargy and stagnancy, and the wise know when is best to pass things on, for their own health and for the best of their House. Thus, I, Ser Robert Joseph de Lyons, Viscount of Enderoca, in sound health and mind, hereby pass the title of Viscount of Enderoca and the Cercle dels Lleons and Fierté du Lion - the marks of that office - on to my eldest son and heir, Lord Tristan Aurelius de Lyons, with the succession then secure in his children. It has been my great honor to serve as peer, and I bear the greatest of confidence that the legacy and vitality of this house shall be well served in the generations to come. Signed, His Royal Majesty, Alexandros II, by the Grace of GOD, King of Balian, Prince of Providence, Duke of Helena, Reutov, Sunholdt and Lorraine, Count of Pompourelia and Kositz, Viscountess of Eflen and Anatis, Baron of Renzfeld, Brucca, Valens, Malenos, Montcoure and Ciavola, Lord of Portoregne, Atrus and Monterosa, Warden of La Costa Rubinissima, Keeper of of St Lothars Hold, Protector of the Heartlanders and the South, etcetera The Most Honorable, Ser Robert Joseph de Lyons, Viscount of Enderoca, Erudit of the Order of the Silver Comet, Kritai of the Kingdom of Balian His Lordship, Don Tristan Aurelius de Lyons, Heir of Enderoca, Cavalier of the Order of the St. Michael, Palatiodoro of the Kingdom of Balian
  3. "Finally, retribution for Father, and for Albert, and for all the rest." the well greyed Viscount would remark as he'd sign the missive, gathering together his arms for the impending conflict "Que les justes feux de Dieu consument les Dragons." "Work for our order at last, da?" the young Vuiller would remark, looking to Prince Xander and the others about the Hold.

  5. Summons of Ser Ephrem Kervallen 12th of Godfrey’s Triumph, 106 B.A LET IT BE KNOWN, that, in connection to incidents in the Battle of St. Lothar’s Hold against the forces of the Scarecrows, SER EPHREM KERVALLEN is being summoned by the Magisterium of Balian, to defend himself against the following charges: 1 Count of Disobedience of the Royal Office, a Crime of Treason (“Lex Criminalis Art. IV.011D - Where an individual refuses a direct order of a member of the Royal Family or Duana, this shall be the crime of Disobedience, a felony.”): For disobeying direct orders from the Royal Magister of Balian to bring in the Scarecrows alive for Trial, and instead fully intended on killing the perpetrator after multiple reminders. 1 Count of Death Threats against the Royal Office, counting as Harmed Majesty, a Crime of Treason (“Lex Criminalis Art II.02C - Where an individual intentionally physically harms a member of the Royal House or Duana, this shall be Harmed Majesty, and charged with the penalty of Treason” and “Lex Criminalis Art. VIII.03 - On Attempt - Where an individual actively attempts, but fails to commit, a crime, the individual shall be held liable with a mitigated punishment according to the crime which was attempted.”): For threatening death upon the Royal Magister of Balian after the aforementioned disobedience. 1 Count of Assault, a Misdemeanor (“Lex Criminalis Art. II.01A - Where an individual intentionally makes an unlawful attempt, coupled with a present ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another, this shall be Assault, a misdemeanor.”): For calling for an Illicit Duel to the death upon another citizen, without consultation, approval, or oversight from the Crown or its Magisterium. To answer to these above-mentioned allegations, SER EPHREM KERVALLEN is summoned by the Magisterium of Balian to trial within the next SIX Saint’s Days. If he should not appear within the appointed period, he shall be deemed guilty of Absconding (Lex Criminalis IV.04A - Where an individual fails or intentionally avoids surrendering oneself to the custody of Royal Officials at the appropriate time, this shall be the crime of Absconding, and in the case of the awaiting trial immediately confirms guilt, dismissing the need for lawful hearing.”) and shall be considered Guilty of the aforementioned crimes, and thus Banished forthwith and from henceforth from the Kingdom of Balian on pain of death. In addition, the following are requested to appear in court as witnesses to the aforementioned crimes: Dame Gwenyth Vilac-Vuiller, Victor Rorin, Lavanya Aruna, Bolvar of Joma, and Hilda Brawn. Due to a conflict of interest, being one of the defendants, the Magister has recused herself for this trial, thus leaving the role of Kritai for the trial to Her Majesty, Queen Sybille I, His Royal Excellency, Don Kristoff Ruthern, or to The Most Honorable, Ser Robert Joseph de Lyons, whom she is allowing to oversee this trial if necessary, making an exception to Article XI of Processus Iudicialis due to his previous experience in the office and her inability to try the case due to her recusal. Signed, Her Royal Majesty, Sybille I, by the Grace of GOD, Queen of Balian, Princess of Providence, Duchess of Helena and Lorraine, Countess of Pompourelia, Viscountess of Renduzzo, Eflen and Anatis, Baroness of Renzfield, Brucca, Valens, Malenos and Ciavola, Lady of Portoregne, Atrus and Monterosa, Warden of La Costa Rubinissima, Protector of the Heartlanders and the South, etcetera. Her Grace, Dame Gwenyth “The Unyielding” Vilac Vuiller, Duchess-Consort of Aquilae, Lady Sentinel of The Royal Sentinels, Cavalier of the Order of St. Michael, Royal Magister of the Kingdom of Balian The Most Honorable, Ser Robert Joseph de Lyons, Viscount of Enderoca, Erudit of the Order of the Silver Comet, Kritai of the Kingdom of Balian
  6. "Time to rebuild my collection..." the aging Keeper would say with a slight smile as he'd read over the missive
  7. Transiens Malleus Passing the Gavel On the 14th of Sigismund’s End, 100 B.A. This year marks the Centennial Anniversary of the Kingdom of Balian, a century since King John I saw his sign after leading his people across the desert to their new home. However, this year also bears other significance to myself. It was in the year 50 B.A. that Don Ledicort Vuiller and King Alexander I released the Writ of Appointment that raised me to be the Magister of the Kingdom of Balian, and thus this marks fifty years that the Law of Balian and it’s enforcement have rested in my care. In that time, I have rewritten the entire Codex of Laws and amended it several times, released many missives, trained wards and hired competent people to manage the department and its roles, and led the once dead chamber into a new era. However, all things must end. With my growing age, and new threats from within and without knocking at the door, I believe it is better that one with the vigor and time that I once had in my younger days take over the department, for the safety, welfare, and greater justice of the Kingdom. Thus, I announce that, effective at the end of the year or the approval of a successor by the Queen, that I, Ser Robert Joseph de Lyons, hereby retire from the position of Royal Magister of Balian, to be a Kritai within the Chamber. I formally suggest that Dame Gwenyth Vilac-Vuiller succeed me in my position, as she is the best trained and equipped to take over the office in my absence. I thank all those, living and dead, who took the chance on me, and gave me this opportunity, and I sincerely hope I did them proud and proved that trust in me was worthwhile. I started as a refugee, much like those led by King John forty-three odd years before my coming, fleeing from the Petran Valley and its marks of war and conflict and hoping to build a life anew as they fled Oren. In that I succeeded, as did those founders, many who came with me, and many since. On this Centennial, I hope all remember and celebrate this Kingdom, which has become the home to so many who were displaced, which was built by those driven off from their homes seeking better lives, and help to keep it a just and prosperous place for those who come now and in the centuries to come. Signed, His Excellency, Ser Robert Joseph de Lyons, Viscount of Enderoca, Cavalier of the Order of the Silver Comet, Royal Magister of the Kingdom of Balian
  8. As someone who has done archery rp as my primary combat mode on here for most of a decade, 3 is fine if RP competency and/or incompetency were taken into account. As is, you often end up only getting 2-5 shots off in an encounter, assuming you stay out of range, and thus it is situational. I like the idea of 3 for the first shot, 2 following, and 3 for Crossbows, but I think the underlying issue of there not being disadvantage or advantage or proficiency, especially with ranged weapons, is worse. My elf I've played since Athera primarily as a ranger archetype, for example, shouldn't miss every other shot. But that would require a revamp of combat in general, so I think decreasing the emotes for subsequent shots would help.
  9. Ser Robyn de Lyons, greyed now by his years, road down the familiar Queensroad of Balian at a leisurely pace as he oft wood, breeze gently ruffling his greying gold hair as he'd notice a buzzing at the side of the road by a lump in the ferns, The Magister would cautiously approach the object, a sense of dread filling his as the scent of blood and fresh carrion would fill his nostrils, and he'd notice the familiar garb and greying brownish red locks as he'd move to genuflect by the body, turning it over in his hands as he'd see the face of his wife, letting out a nigh inhuman sob as he'd lift her onto his horse, galloping to town and laying her in a bed in the clinic, calling for his son. Robyn would look upon the body of his deceased wife, sobbing, as he'd swear "Ils périront dans les flammes... tous. Je le jure devant Dieu dans les Sept Cieux." before blessing the body in Flexio, signing the Lorraine as he'd begin to write letters, expression of dethatched, shellshocked sadness on his face as he'd sit at her bedside, breaking into intermittent sobs.
  10. Ser Robyn de Lyons would charge on foot, armor dirtied and battered from his horse being felled beneath him, cheering "In Signo Vinces! Deus nos conservat!" as he'd mill about the field, looking for the last survivors as he'd help defend his homeland
  11. "I thought this war was about stopping the Brigands and Veletz both..." the Magister would mutter with a sigh as the missive would reach him "I suppose war brings strange bedfellows, and people can be reformed...I suppose time shall tell if they return to their ways once the war is through and it is convenient for them..."
  12. Officium Procerum est Pugnare It is the Nobleman’s Duty to Fight It is the Nobleman’s duty to fight for the peace, freedom, and prosperity of his progeny, and his whole people. Thus, let it be known, that by the order of His Royal Majesty, King Adrian, first of his name, all members of Balian’s noble families who reside within the nation must enlist into the Armada, in order to put an end to the Scourge of Stassion, the Ferryman, and Veletz, and ensure the freedom, peace, and honor of all men living under GOD’s grace. Those who refuse their duty when pressed shall be fined a sum of two-hundred fifty minas, and forced to carry out their duty, unless granted dispensation due to age or poor health. Men are separated from beasts by their honor, and should compromise their honor for no one. Thus, I hope that all our nobility shall willingly and quickly jump at the chance to fulfill their duties and obligations, and to bring honor to themselves and their houses, for serving GOD’s will against the wicked, the unjust, the tainted, and the ungodly. Signed, HIS ROYAL MAJESTY, Adrian I, by the Grace of GOD, King of Balian, Viscount of Pompourelia, Eflen and Anatis, Baron of Brucca,Valens, Malenos, Goza and Ciavola, Lord of Portoregne, Atrus and Monterosa, Warden of La Costa Rubinissima, Prince of the Holy Orenian Empire, Protector of the Heartlanders and the South, etcetera. Her Royal Highness, Elena Casimira Novellen-de Lyons, Countess of Rosemoor, Baroness of Enderoca, Amiratus of the Kingdom of Balian, Lady Seneschal of the Crown and Chief Minister of the Royal Duana. His Excellency, Ser Robert Joseph de Lyons, Baron of Enderoca, Cavalier of the Order of the Silver Comet, Royal Magister of the Kingdom of Balian
  13. Història en Cendres History in Ashes 19th of Owyn's Flame, 86 B.A. Let it be known, that some time over the previous Saint’s Night, we found that the Veletzian Anathema, likely individuals tied to those who burnt down a Church of GOD in the lands of Petra within a similar timeframe, also entered the Kingdom of Balian, and intentionally razed a museum on the history of the old Empire curated by one of our private citizens. Let it be known that acts by the Anathema to destroy Humanity’s ties to its GOD and its History - two of the things that most define us as Human - shall not be tolerated. For our Faith in our GOD and his natural Law guide us towards what we should aspire to be, and his Exalted warn us of our deficiencies and against iniquity; likewise, our History shows us what we have done - both good and ill - in the past, without knowledge of which we would be left unable to learn and improve into the future. Let it be known that this act of Arson in the First Degree - a felony under our laws - shall be investigated, and if we may find the cowards who would rather incinerate and destroy buildings of Learning and Faith in the night rather than face the League of GOD’s Chosen in fair combat, thus depriving Humanity of the lessons provided in such, shall be punished under the full extent of the law, and only prove their cowardice and stupidity. Signed, His Excellency, Ser Robert Joseph de Lyons, Baron of Enderoca, Cavalier of the Order of the Silver Comet, Royal Magister of the Kingdom of Balian
  14. "A war long coming, and well deserved. For blessed are those who walk not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor lived in the way of sinners, nor gave themselves to pestilences. For those who live by the law of the Lord shall grow strong, and bring forth fruit, and prosper in all they do, while the wicked shall be driven and scattered like dust from the face of the earth, and shall be revealed for who they are and trusted no longer in the councils of the just and the righteous. Now the wicked shall perish, while those who live by GOD's justice shall endure forever." the de Lyons would remark, half in prayer, half in his own contemplation as he'd move to prepare his hammer and his blade, and the armor once worn by his father, now by him. Though as he'd look upon the armor, his brow would furrow, and he'd frown slightly as he'd mutter to himself "Or at least so the scriptures say, and the just pray for. Though sometimes our history sings a different, less certain tune. But without hope and honor, we have naught. Time tells, but resolve decides."
  15. Ser Robyn de Lyons would prepare his blade, sharpening and oiling it as he'd read over the paper "To war once more then, and one that has been long coming...a solid plan, and GOD is with us, for he knows the way of the Just, and the Wicked shall perish."
