    Comprehensive Imprisonment Reform

    Copy and pasting my response to your status update from earlier; I’ve thought about this a lot, to the point where last map, I assisted in the creation of an imperial prison for a short time in Johannesburg. We had a holding cell, five cells above ground, about ten cells in the lower floors, four solitary confinement chambers, faculty offices, a clinic, a courtyard, storage chambers, and even a laboratory. Our prison was very successful, but thats only because crime in Johannesburg was abnormally rampant, so we had a lot of opportunities to arrest a variety of criminals. Most of them enjoyed the short term captivity, and there were even some asking if prison RP was a long term goal of ours. If we enforced more rigorous soulstone and /d20 rules for imprisonment, I think that the people who would want to participate in prison RP — which seems to be an unexpectedly large base — would actually be eager to play some brand of criminal, not to mention that additional criminals serving an IRP year long sentence or so would also experience the prison RP. Not only would suggested reforms bring about fun and dynamic prison RP, it’d make more functional sense for select nations. My single qualm with this imprisonment system isn’t the proposed change in the rules, but instead the practical implementation. I personally believe there ought to be only a few nation prisons, two or three at most, where allied nations share facilities. That way, we can centralize criminal detainees so that players aren’t forced to just RP with one other cell mate and a guard for a few days. This could also incentivize us to hire more ‘round-the-clock guards, hire players from different time zones to be guardsmen, maybe even reform our broken economy. If we want to truly make prison RP a reality, then we need to focus mainly on LotC’s economy and creating consequences of both our physical and political actions. There’s a lot of sociological and economic theories that the administration should consider, i.e. creating resource scarcity, to inflate our currency, to make poor people actually feel poor, etc. However, that might be a discussion for the future. To make meaningful prison RP, the aforementioned elements are crucial. But this reform to imprisonment RP is a good start. Take my +1

    Atlas Map (Fantasy Styled Map)

    Looking nice, my fellow cartographers
  6. [!] Rampant news swarms the denizens of Atlas, immediately notifying everyone who lives above a rock of the impending railroad revolution. The Railroad Revolution "The beginning of an industrial revolution to shape the future of Atlas as we know it." 12th of the Sun's Smile, 1680 Investors, engineers, statesmen, and architects all gathered in Belvitz this seed to attend an international conference, hosted by the International Railway Commission, detailing the future innovations in the railroad industry. The first Railroad Exposition of 1680 presented massive locomotive designs, model train tracks, steam engines, and other various inventions to showcase to potential investors and future inventors. Numerous heads of state, engineers, and company associates were in attendance, such as the Bracchus Partners, the Southern Haeseni Railroad Co., and more. At the exposition, engineers and architects were bewildered to witness the erection of a massive locomotive -- decommissioned, of course -- but impressive nonetheless. It was a feat of great ingenuity by leading engineer Eyo O'Fwynn. In addition was an operational railway, mimicking that of the currently constructed railroad connecting the capital city of Holm to the small town of Oserov, a suburb of Belvitz. In addition, local engineers were showcasing outrageously new contraptions, such as portable clocks, steam engines, automatic seed planters, grinders, and even a machine which vends snack foods without need for sentient operators. While the engineers fawned over these contraptions, the investors conversed with railway company presidents and organizers, collaborating and trading shares in their companies with each other. After all, with any massive railway project comes massive financial undertakings. Finally, the statesmen were establishing potential diplomatic and political relations, in preparation to construct various different railways across the settlements of Atlas. Septimius Bracchus, Caius Roswell-Rubens, and Charles Napier delivering speeches in regards to the future of industry. ((Photo credits _Lark_)) Of course, these accomplishments couldn't even be feasible without the support and innovation from numerous contributors. Below is a list of the men and women, so fiercely collaborating together to make this massive feat of infrastructure a reality. Septimius Bracchus President of the Bracchus & Partners Rail Co. Septimius Bracchus, Baron of Aescullus, is considered the leading innovator and businessman in regards to formally conducting the construction of various railways. He acts as the president of the first privately owned railway company, Bracchus & Partners Railways, which has begun to organize the most prominent of these railway construction efforts. He's recently released plans to commission the construction of the Western Imperial Railway, in conjunction with the Southern Haeseni Railway Co. Claudius Bracchus Director of Transport for Holm, Chairman of the International Railway Commission Claudius Bracchus, the brother of Septimius Bracchus, is the director of transportation for the Republic of Holm, as well as the Chairman of the IRC. It's his duty to organize international cooperation between railroad companies, in order to ensure the continuous construction of railroads between major settlements. It's his job to ensure that this massive infrastructure project of ungodly proportions sees the light of day, by negotiating transportation deals with various member states. Eyo O'Fwynn Head Engineer for Bracchus Railways Eyo O'Fwynn is considered the genius behind the curtains. It's her duty to instruct all the engineers when discussing the construction, organization, and internal mechanisms of the railways. Her inventions include the "Automatic Food Vendor," the "Seed grinder," and the "Lighty-Pushy Mechanism." Drawing inspiration from famed architect Balek Irongut, with her engineering expertise, the IRC and their assosciates will truly remain triumphant in their valiant efforts to continue the construction of railways across Atlas. Charles Napier Chief Officer of the Western Imperial Railway Charles Napier is considered the right-hand man to Septimius Bracchus, acting as a coordinator for the physical construction of railways. He's also a director of negotiations and public events for the IRC, such as the recent Railroad Exposition. In essence, he is the strong arm of the railway construction efforts. Caius Roswell-Rubens Consul of the Republic of Holm Caius Roswell-Rubens is the democratically elected Consul of Holm, originally commissioning the creation of the Holmite Transportation Department. He has become one of the leading contributor of railway laborers and statehood support for this industrial revolution. Career Opportunities & Investments If you wish to express interest in working for the International Railway Commission and their various railroad companies, please contact Septimius Bracchus ((Discord: Publius#1947)) at the Bracchus Partners, or Otto Ludevar ((Discord: yopplwasupxxx#6527)) at the Haeseni Southern Railway Co. by carrier to inquire about what you can do for the future of industrial innovations in Atlas. May it be as a construction worker, an architect, an engineer, or an administrative assistant, there's a spot for you to contribute to the patriotic duty of fueling economic and transportation initiatives. In addition, investors are always welcome to contribute their monetary funds to the various railway companies. To invest your funds to the construction efforts and enrich yourself on the next most profitable industry in Atlas, contact Charles Napier ((Discord: Hanrahan#4886)) to inquire as to how you can purchase shares and invest in our future. How to Purchase a Railway If you're a statesman and wish to construct your own rail station in your home settlement, worry naught, for the IRC shall willingly make arrangements with your representatives to demand the construction of a station linking your nation to the rest of the modern world. The IRC cannot guarantee that all requests will be met, for they 'ought to prioritize certain geographical locations over others, but we shall earnestly take your request into consideration, and hopefully, we may conduct business together. Please speak to IRC Chairman Claudius Bracchus ((Discord: Zed#4474)) for further inquiries, or to arrange a meeting. Remember, the Railroad Revolution draws near. The future of technological advancements dawns upon descendants everywhere, demanding that the people utilize their newfound developments to further the expansion of our grandiose desire for an industrial revolution. Ladies and gentlemen, a new Era of Industry is upon us.

    The Empire of Man, c. 1679

    I'm still trying to make lotc cartography that's half as great as this. What program do you use? I've got SAI and that's treated me pretty well but I'm wondering if there's anything better out there. And again, kuddos, getting the political boundaries correct and actually marking townships and forts is extremely difficult and painstakingly excruciating to do EDIT: Only mistake I can see on the map is the island in the lower left hand corner, which actually belongs in Fennic territory. It's home to some Fennic military camp with fat tents n ****

    LET THE FLAG RISE! [Kadarsi Sultanate]

    [!] Consul Roswell-Rubens is encouraged to see his Kadarsian friends prosper.
  10. [!] A young, Dwinic courier steps up to Dwainstone to make an announcement. The Holmoite Reformist Party est. 1669 ”Righteousness to the Republic” “Hear ye’, hear ye’!” bellows a courier from the centre of Holm’s city square. The town crier, a young Dwed, hoists a parchment into the air. “We, the constituents of our righteous Republic, now engage in the establishment and construction of a political revolution against the establishment caucus of the Senate. For our short Republic’s history, they have touted their democratic values without truly embodying the principles to support such achievements. These claimants are corrupt, elitist, and do not advocate for the well-being of the voting class.” “That is why We, the People, wage a full scale political war in the Senate.” “Not a literal war, mind you,” the Dwarven courier continued, quoting the parchment. “A war of republican ideals, waged upon elitist beliefs which have emboldened the political prowess of our domestic opposition.” “On the 8th of the Amber Cold, 1668, an informal Senate meeting was called into session. The Senators in attendance included Caius Roswell-Rubens, Dimlin Irongut, Samuel Lythian, Dwain Irongut, and Zahrer Irongrinder, in addition to Consuls Dorin and Dor Irongut. The purpose of this Senate session was to review a proposition for a new Constitution, to replace the seriously defunct and outdated Charter, ratified nearly two decades ago. When presented with the constitutional proposition, establishment politicians belligerently rejected the core principles of such a reasonable notion. The Consuls, the Tribunal Council, and the fellow establishment Senators all resented the ideals of basic, republican values. They staunchly opposed the confirmation of government officials by Senate members, they rejected the proposal to grant all Senate members an equal vote, and most egregious of all, they can be quoted as deeming citizens nothing more than leeches and parasites. “Nobility, by the basis of it’s allowance, is given when someone contributes above and beyond that asked of the individual citizenry. By numbers alone, citizenry outnumbers nobility by a great deal and as such allows for a majority of citizens. The issue which your endeavor is to fix by leveling present rights of nobles is only being proposed as not all citizens participate as the nobility does. There is no reason to reduce their own votes to establish greater voting power to those who do nothing.” — Zahrer Irongrinder "So, is it unfair to deem those who have done more for our state higher than those [citizens] who feed off of us?" — Dor Irongut For these reasons, we find it prudent to formulate a political party to represent the people of Holm, in order to grant the rabble a candidate they’re excited to vote for. The courier pins the party’s platform to the stand for the audience to read. With the creation of the Holmoite Reformist Party, we seek to advocate for the following; A Balanced Constitution The Charter is significantly outdated. Our new Constitutional Proposition is open to changes and alterations. The Holmoite Reformist Party will be hosting a series of constitutional conventions to accommodate for concerns within the provisions of this proposed document. The Tribunal Council Currently, our bureaucratic administration is dysfunctional, ineffective, and fails to promote executive, legislative, and judicial excellence. It is our duty to adopt a more modern approach to administrative government, appointing more individuals to the public sector, as a means to both increase functionality in government affairs and increase employment. Increase Voting Rights in the Senate Our unicameral legislature is treated more so as an advisory board than an actual Senate. We must require that all changes in policy are brought forth to the Senate for a vote, in order to maintain the reputability of our Republic. Senators 'ought to receive more updates about policies implemented by the Consuls, and have the ability to vote on each and every measure enacted. In addition, Senate sessions should be constitutionally required. The Holmoite Reformist Party will be hosting a series of conventions to decipher further policy planks. All registered members are invited, as well as those fascinated with the concept of the platform, with an interest in further engaging in electoral politics. To register as a party member and become entitled to event information and be involved in elections, please fill out the form below. Residents, citizens, and nobles are all welcome to assist in our endeavors. We invite you to join us in our endeavor to pass competent legislative reforms in the Senate. We’ve no doubt that together, our political party shall truly shape public policy in Holm. Speak to Evan Katke, Hogarth Irongut, Charles Napier, Alexandra Bradshawe, or Caius Roswell-Rubens with further inquiries.
  11. +1 over and over again. Give this man the position. If you want good FM's, Cara's probably the second most competent person on the server. I'm the first.

    Not only was this unneeded, this will 100000% hurt the server. I laughed when I thought this was a joke, now I'm thinking of just RP'ing on Hypixel because there won't be much of a difference now.
