The Realm of the Khazadmar shall be divided into three sections: The Capital - constituting the urban boundaries of Kal’Kladian, which shall serve as the administrative center of the Grand Kingdom and the gathering point of the Khazadmar. The Royal Domains - constituting the caverns of Kal’Kladian, shall serve as the Grand King's personal lands, to be inherited by his successor. The Crownlands - constituting the outer and inner territories of the Grand Kingdom, shall serve as public land of the Grand Kingdom. Individual citizens may rent homesteads and barns for financial purposes. All construction within the Crownlands shall be subject to masonry regulations. The Legion shall have sole authority in managing access to the various mines throughout the Grand Kingdom. Additionally, provided they are eligible, certain Clans may purchase land and build Clan Holds in the Crownlands. Clan Holds - once a Clan is eligible for a land grant (obtained through completing the census), they are to pay the required amount to purchase land within the Crownlands as determined by the Gold Mountain Act: 1000 mina. Clan Lords must consult with either the Grand King or Grand Steward on a chosen location and on the quality of their construction. Rent for these holds shall be set at a fixed rate of 200 mina, collected annually by the Grand Steward.

We must grasp the chance to rebirth the minds of creation within us. To this, I say, let two Royal Guilds of Urguan be established to push us forward in our advancements! The Prospectors Guild, to be organized by Falstad Grandaxe. (Discord: lennydot) The Engineers Guild, to be organized by Xob Wobsson (Discord: norgeth_) From here on out, these guilds shall be sponsored by The Crown. Miners and talented engineers are encouraged to join these respective guilds. Adept smiths should also seek me out, for the craftsmanship of our people deserves my patronage. LAND REFORM A census has already been published to determine the current population of the respective Khazadmar Clans. The Elder Clans Frostbeard, Grandaxe, and Starbreaker officially qualify for Land Grants. Their Clan Lords should seek me out for an audience to determine the locations for their holds. A Land Reform Act shall also be published in this year’s Iron Assembly. [!]A document has been attached below CITY RENOVATIONS As promised in my agenda, our city shall be augmented with vital infrastructure projects, including more housing and sorely needed guild halls and clan halls for smaller clans.

  4. THE IRON ASSEMBLY KHRON’NOZKRON The Iron Assembly is the popular assembly of the Khazadmar people, a political forum for all opinions to be voiced to the Grand King, the chosen leader of the Khazadmar. It is modeled after its direct predecessor, the King’s Court. At these meetings, royal decrees and laws will be presented for approval. Any dwarf may present a petition, informing the government of specific grievances and permitting the spread of new ideas for the betterment of the realm. ROYAL DECREES & LAWS At the start of any Iron Assembly, the Grand King will present his yearly decrees to the khazadmar nation and any laws he wishes to promulgate, to be collectively approved by the Iron Assembly by a verbal shout. PETITIONS Once the King has spoken his piece, all Khazadmar will be invited to present petitions before the Grand King. Once queued in an orderly line, the Grand King will call upon each petitioner in turn, ensuring all get an audience with the crown. Grievances, ideas and ongoing feuds may be raised during this audience. THE GRAND KING’S PEACE The King’s Peace is the principle that shall govern relations within Khazadmar Society: no dwarf shall resolve disputes through violence but instead is encouraged to do so through the arbitration of the Grand King. No dwarf shall create disunity amongst our people through the spread of deceit or mistruths. NARVAK OZ URGUAN

  6. Y 187 of the second age 30th of June, 2024 King’s Decree Urguan Roadmap Announcement for the Year To the Khazadmar of the Dwarven Realms, It is my duty to present to you the roadmap for Urguan for this year, encompassing important decisions and projects. Engineering and Industrial Advancements: Moving forward, we are pleased to announce the mobilization of a dedicated force of engineers who will spearhead our continued advancements in machinery. This year marks the commencement of a groundbreaking project: the construction of a Transportation Machine. This formidable machine will be a large container unit designed to efficiently transport forces and resources through the deep caves of our lands. This Transportation Machine will be the first of many industrial crafts as we strive to expand our capabilities in construction and warfare. Our goal is to bolster our defenses and enhance our infrastructure, ensuring that Urguan remains a formidable and thriving realm. Appointments and Leadership: In conclusion, I am honored to announce several key appointments that will bolster our leadership and governance. Thumbrindal of the Elder Clan Grandaxe will assume the role of King’s Guardian, Guttrik of the Elder clan Starbreaker shall serve as Yemekar’s Pick, Alaric Grimgold as the High Preceptor, Ak-Rullaz and Rhorgvar of the Elder Clan Frostbeard will serve as Iron Barons. Additionally, we will soon appoint a new Lord Justiciar to further strengthen and uphold the principles of justice within our realm. With these announcements, we set forth on a path of progress. Let us continue to work together to build a stronger, more prosperous Urguan for all Dwarves. Grand King Ulfar Starbreaker of the Dwarven Realms
  7. 21st of Sun’s Smile. Y 187 of the second age 1st of July, 2024 Gold Mountain Act As we near the end of the construction of our new city, it is time to delve into an ambitious idea: the introduction of Clan Holds. This initiative aims to create a network of Holds across the Dwarven realm, allowing us to truly embody the reality of our title, the Grand Kingdom of Urguan. These Holds will bring prosperity to our people by enabling individual clans to deeply root their unique cultures and traditions, fostering growth throughout our lands. The concept of Clan Holds is to provide each clan with a dedicated territory where they can cultivate their heritage and expand their influence. By doing so, we ensure that the depths of Dwarven culture thrives, enhancing the diversity and strength of our kingdom. Each Hold will serve as a beacon of clan identity, fostering pride and solidarity among its members. To be granted land by the Crown for the establishment of a Hold, the Clan Leader must first read and sign a Census. This process will ensure that all Holds are established with the full support and commitment of their respective clans, guaranteeing their success and sustainability. In order to support the expansion of our realm and the rise of new Holds, we must address the current state of our treasury. The construction of our new city has placed a significant strain on our financial resources, resulting in a slow recovery of our funds. To expedite this recovery and enable the funding of Clan Holds, it is imperative that we expand our treasury. To tackle this challenge, I am proud to announce the Gold Mountain Act. This act is a grand fundraiser designed to unite the Khazadmar in a collective effort to replenish our treasury. We call upon every Dwarf to contribute, pooling our resources to explore new lands and secure territories for the establishment of Clan Holds. The Gold Mountain Act will not only bolster our financial reserves but also strengthen the bonds of our community. By working together towards a common goal, we reaffirm our dedication to the prosperity and expansion of Urguan. Those who contribute to the Mountain Act will be rewarded based on the amount deposited: If none of the benefits interest the donator, they can also donate to the Gold Mountain Fund in exchange for Gold Mountain Bonds that can be used in various government related transactions. 200+ Minas: A legendary weapon forged by the Grand King himself using ancient and revered dwarven smithing techniques, embodying the essence of our rich heritage. 350+ Minas: A prestigious Medal personally bestowed by the Grand King, with your name eternally inscribed on the illustrious Wall of Contributors to the Gold Mountain Act. 500+ Minas: All previous prestigious benefits, plus a Grand Bust Statue erected in a prominent public place in Urguan, serving as a testament to your generosity for all to see. 1000+ Minas: The esteemed Clan will be considered for the exclusive option to be granted land after meeting the Census requirements. Additionally, the clan banner will be proudly displayed within the majestic Obsidian Throne Hall. 1500+ Minas: An awe-inspiring, colossal statue will be constructed in your honor within the Lands of Urguan, a grand monument to your unparalleled generosity and contribution. 2000+ Minas: A magnificent Mundus golem of exquisite Royal craftsmanship and rare, precious stone will be meticulously created for the generous benefactor. 3000+ Minas: The donator will be able to name the region of land claimed using the donated funds. This land will be displayed on the Official map of our venerated Lands. Grand King Ulfar Starbreaker of the Dwarven Realms

Let us remember the strength of our forefathers, the wisdom of our ancestors, and the courage that flows through our veins.

  10. Deep in the slums of Urguan, where the poor and hungry go, Ulfar Starbreaker sits among the natives. There, he gifts the poor with wealth and the hungry with food, servus golems carrying crates of fresh slaughter and barrels of quality ale. Soon enough, a Servus golem brings Alaric's letter to him. The golemantic gaze looks upon the contents of such, a grim expression growing over the dwarf's face. One of the natives required assistance, needing help cleaning off some of the blood from the crates. Easily, Ulfar hands them the letter as it soaks up the mess.
  11. THE KHAZADMAR OATH For too long has The Grand Kingdom of Urguan been the bickering of words, not the Kingdom of taking Action. We spend days, months, and even years trying to come to conclusions and outcomes by simply talking about them around a table or in a large chamber. Often, these ideas, a blessing given to us by Ogradhad to think, are thrown to the side after hours of conversation. Mouths flapping as we go nowhere and make no productive advancements. As a leader of our Grand Kingdom, I know this will no longer be the case. Time will be given for ideas to brew, but we shall take action to make them a reality. To be a Khazad of my word, I shall declare all I will achieve during my time on the throne as a united front of all Khazadmar, not just those with Elder blood, but as a King dedicated to serving his people. Let my actions be my legacy, not my words. RETURN TO THE ANCIENT WAYS Let my words bring truth where others lie. As we move forward, the first action to be declared and taken will be the Act of Innovation. We will create a new Dwedmar world with a reignited industry. We aim to bring the ancient Khazadmar skills back into the light for all to see, idolize, and be awed by, as we are a people unmatched. I pledge my royal patronage to the guild that leads by example: the Guild of the Anvilmasters. Furthermore, I am a Khazad of business too, so I know what it is like to try to start up your own guild and enterprise. With that, I declare that I encourage the foundation of new guilds and cooperations to take place, offering my unwavering support to these new ideas as long as they are practical. Second, I declare the revival of our Sacred Art, which was taught to Gotrek the Starbreaker by Yemekar himself. As you may have seen, I have taught many in the ways of Golemancy within Urguan, and even as a king, I will continue to do so. The golemancers shall be organized in such a way that it will be encouraged to teach our sacred craft to new aspiring Dwedki as the Loremaster Ogradhad teaches. Our crafts shall birth new Khorenmar, small and Titanic, into our society, bringing back the powerful bond of Khazad and Khoren just as we had in Ancient Times. Furthermore, I shall prioritize learning and growth of knowledge within the Kingdom. That said, let it be known that we will push for this greater industry to take place with Kingdom projects to set in motion the construction of great engineering machines and the masonry of structures and constructs. THE IRON ASSEMBLY As King, I will always lend my ears to the people; however, the Iron Assembly is where I will listen closer to the Khazadmar of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan. I shall, therefore, introduce the Iron Assembly as a public forum for all Dwarves modeled after past monarchs’ King’s Courts. Held on a yearly basis: it is at this forum that any royal decrees and laws shall be presented. Petitions may be made by any dwarf so that ideas or concerns can be raised directly with the King. It is at this assembly that feuds may also be arbitrated by the Crown to ensure the unity of the Khazadmar and the Grand King’s peace is maintained. GOVERNMENT REFORM The government has always been rusty regarding upholding responsibilities. To resolve this, I will reconstruct the round table and define the Permanent and Honorary positions within the council. Furthermore, the Articles and Laws of our Kingdom have grown old and outdated, written for a time long past. My government will work to review the Articles and Laws and have them redrafted for the new age we find ourselves in. Within the same realm of government, I will work to establish various methods to raise revenue within the Kingdom and develop a largely more efficient and effective currency for our society with the help of others of my choosing. CITY RENOVATIONS Thanks to the work and labor of the Urguani construction team led by Thazzaer Grandaxe, we have come to live in a magnificent city. However, it is still incomplete, so we must work together to carry out the construction with new additions in mind. The first shall be the expansion of the Guildhalls, where new and growing guilds can settle in to advance their industry. Next, we will expand the city's living quarters to accommodate our ever-growing population, with a new housing area for Yrommar to free up space for the dwarves. Then, we will construct a Grand Arena to honor Dungrimm while the Legion Hall will be receiving a sizable renovation effort to house more soldiers and provide new facilities. We shall also begin the construction of space for Clan Halls so the Clans can organize themselves more efficiently. Lastly, we will expand the great forge of the Khazadmar and build a new Foundry for golems to reward the growing number of Golemancers within our society. LAND REFORM With the City Renovation Act, we must also focus on the lands surrounding our glorious Kingdom. The realm of Khazadmar shall be divided into three districts. The first district shall be The Capital city of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan, which will become the administrative center. The second district shall be the King’s Personal domains, extending to the Caverns of Kal’Kladian and the Fjordlands as a frontier province managed directly by the Legion. The third district shall be the crownlands. Within this district, qualified clans may be granted land by the Crown to construct a hold for themselves once their members have completed the Census and complied with Masonry regulations to ensure the construction meets quality standards. The Village of Hefrumm will be granted renewed autonomy by affirming its longstanding constitution. DIPLOMACY I will otherwise work hard to establish alliances based upon trust and friendship, not cynical interest. Alliances built on strategic interest are likely to break, so they are not worth engaging in. On the other hand, agreements built upon friendship are nearly unbreakable, even in the face of destruction. We Khazadmar must uphold this ideal to demonstrate not only that our word is strong but that our fidelity to our allies is stronger; it must not be mistaken for weakness. Our previous King, Thurgrim Silverbraid, saw the need for a united front among our allies against the impending Azdrazi threat. This work must be continued, with a concordat of descendants organized amongst the Western nations unified in one goal—to resist the darkness that lies to the far north. With the treacherous Aengul abandoning Aevos, we must stand strong together against the Dragons and their allies and pursue the divinely sanctioned destruction of the Red Lich Gashadokuro and his forces. NARVOK OZ URGUAN
