  1. [!] 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purpose of this Senate session was to review a proposition for a new Constitution, to replace the seriously defunct and outdated Charter, ratified nearly two decades ago.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.

  3. [!] "O'ye," shouts your local town crier, lugging along a crate of your favorite news publication, "The new edition of the Holm Herald has been released! Come pick up ye' copy for five minae a paper, folks! Five minae!" Following the first publication's success, you figure that you'll just buy a copy -- after all, the first edition was so engrossing.

    DNN #7

    Caius scoffs, reading over his own publication. "Maybe if the DNN hadn't been racist and rejected an adept journalist such as myself, they wouldn't be faced with this superior journalistic opposition! This isn't real news, it's nothing more than town gossip."
  5. [!] A news publication, originating from Holm, is distributed to all major cities, available for just five minae a copy -- what a bargain!

    DNN #6

    Caius spews his Stauntbucks Coffee™ onto his copy of the DNN, hand delivered to him in his office. "Denouncing Kardel?! Why would the temple wish to slander the dead, and such a great man in life, too!"
  7. +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.

    Papa_Liam's Wiki Team Application

    Username: Papa_Liam Forum Name: Papa Liam Discord Name and Tag: Liam#7649 How do you wish to work for the wiki? Primarily, I enjoy sprucing up and expanding wiki pages from uninformative stubs to substantive, updated, aesthetically appealing articles of lore and information. I'm well versed in nation history more so than anything else. In addition, I find cartography to be exceptionally fun, making maps for various communities, as well as the current map on the front page of the wiki. I'm more than willing to create maps for relevant wiki pages in the future, as well. Have you worked on the Lord of the Craft Wiki, or any wiki before? Yes, I've wasted a fair amount of my life on the wiki. Which lore are you most familiar with? Post-Athera political lore, creature lore Please provide an example of a wiki page you are not satisfied with and list aspects that could be improved https://wikia.lordofthecraft.net/index.php?title=ShadowVale No information boxes, failing to provide easy access to information. No pictures, very bland when it comes to aesthetics. Broad paragraphs of information, poorly divided into few sections. Increase the amount of divisions in text, and label various sections. Please provide an example of a wiki page you see as a model example and list your reasoning https://wikia.lordofthecraft.net/index.php?title=Kardel_Irongut Character art with clean lines, appropriate colors, and integrates onto the page well. Character box highlights exact birth/death dates, offers extensive info so that readers don't have to dig for simple information. Well written introductory paragraph before table of contents. Biography is properly divided between "turning points" in Kardel's life, especially his ascension to the throne throughout the course of his political career. Please showcase your abilities with either A short writing on a subject of your choosing, or An example of an 'other' (Already completed wiki pages are a plus!)

    Lord Justiciar, Baldwin Brandt, gives a very firm and appreciative nod.

    “As a child of the Canon, I find these aforementioned actions to be quite. . . Absurd,” remarks Baldwin. “As opposed to delivering the enlightenment of GOD to the various realms, both foreign and domestic, the Holy See has now become a political entity of subversion, a blunt, propagandistic tool to be employed for the sake of achieving a political agenda.” Baldwin shakes his head, slouching at his desk. “I would love to see Canonist clergymen hosting congregations within our apostolic society, if they weren’t somehow banished. I see not how Haense can now become enlightened if we are barred from enlightenment itself. The Church truly is working against its own interests.” ”I’m simply glad that the overwhelming majority of Atlas now recognizes their perversion.”

      A nice map of Atlas! Marking all regions/nations? Maybe add their names and maybe roads too?

      Yea I made roads on the wikimap, so I'll just probably overlay the roads onto this map. And I'll add names later, it's a WIP
