    THE PALATINE GUARD

    The Palatine Guard “Ex Umbra In Solem” The snow flew in all directions, a blizzard most foul had been sent breezing through Atlas in recent times. Even so, a gathering of men walked the southern hills. The dried leaves of winter crunched beneath their steel capped boots as they marched, the tips of their polearms brittle by the snapping cold. Their banners, which flapped solitarily midst the wind, were drenched in a repugnant reddish-brown sludge. There upon the thin linen, though, still flew the violaceous arms of the Vicar of God, its dignified wings frosted over some by a tenebrous ice. A score of men waded through the flurry, determined and hungry, with the objective of reaching their respite. The blizzard had snuffed out any resemblance of humanity in the retainers just as well as their ordeal had. They were tired, they were weary, yet they pushed on. Alike to ants in a downfall, they made for home. For Judeburg For the High Pontiff For GOD PREAMBLE Defenders of the Holy Father, the Church, and its ancient institutions, the Palatine Guard maintains the law of GOD across the realms of humanity. Tasked as the personal protectors of the High Pontiff, these men serve at the most elite level and pledge their life to the Church. It is further organised to manage the defense of the Church and the keepers of its faith. The Guard is formed as its precursor had been under the High Pontiff Daniel I, to protect the Church in times where its security is not guaranteed without strength and arms. To live and die for the Pontiff and God is the ultimate purpose of the Palatine Guard. THE CODE It is the responsibility of all Palatine’s to give their life for the Guard. Each initiate shall have to repeat this code in their oathing ceremony, with the basic tenants of the Guard herein laid out: I. To serve the word of GOD with faith and devotion. II. To maintain and defend His word until death. III. To embody the virtues of the Exalteds and the Saints. IV. To serve the High Pontiff, College of Bishops, and the institutions of the Church of the Canon with unwavering loyalty. V. To obey without question the word of the Holy Father. VI. To live in the knowledge that to violate this code means death. RANKS HIGH COMMAND Commandant The Commandant is the head of the Palatine Guard, and his authority on matters of running the Guard are held as law. The position is retained for life, or until it is abdicated from. The Commandant is appointed by the Palatine Council, chosen from the Vice-Commandants. He can only be removed by the High Pontiff himself, as has a duty to advise the Holy Father and College on all matters military. PALATINE COUNCIL The Palatine Council acts as the commanding force in the Guard. They are the direct subordinates of the Commandant, and are all appointed by him. Made up of the following, it is they who select the next Commandant. Vice-Commandants The Vice-Commandant's are the overall commanders of the Guard. Tasked with command on the battlefield, and the management of specific sections and offices of the Guard, they are implemented in an effort to delegate the daily functions of the Palatine Guard. Kaplan The Kaplan is the highest spiritual rank in the Guard, and acts with the same authority as Commandant, but can be overridden by him. Selected from the fiercest and bravest the Palatine has to offer, the Kaplan becomes an ordained warrior-priest and runs all religious matters in the Guard. The Kaplan has a seat on the Palatine Council, however only one can be in existence at a time. Confanonier The Confanonier is in charge of all within the Enlisted ranks. He is the one to carry the Pontifical standard into battle, and acts as the paymaster, trainer, and role model to all lower ranks. As with the Kaplan, there may be only one in service at a time. SENIOR COMMAND First Knight The First Knight is he who has shown his ability to command in battle effectively. They are considered the advisers to the Palatine Council, and is given command of the Holy Knights. They are to be selected by the Commandant himself, but are not guaranteed a seat within the Palatine Council. On occasion, however, it may be permitted that they sit on the Council. Holy Knights The Holy Knights are the most elite members of the guard. They carry the style of ‘Holy Ser’, and are chosen from the First Palatines. They are beholden to the First Knight, who leads them into battle. First Palatine The First Palatine are the most experienced, proven and competent Palatines the Guard has to offer. They are chosen from those who have been decorated on the field, and usually a secondary duty. The First Palatine is a disciplinary role, and as such they are in charge of distributing punishments amongst the enlisted and keeping order. Quartermaster General The Quartermaster General is tasked with the maintenance of military supplies within the Palatine Guard. They are chosen from Enlisted who are shown to have a keen eye for organisation and logistics. There is usually only one residing Quartermaster, but in certain cases that number may be expanded. It is they who create and keep the records of the Palatine Guard, and work in aid of the Palatine Council in executing their plans. ENLISTED Palatine The Palatine are veteran warriors of the guard, proven in battle and loyalty. It is they who make up the bulwark of the Guard, and act as the primary rank-and-file soldier within its hierarchy. They are the first of the Guard who are permitted to wear the colours and tabard of the Palatine Guard. Gendarmerie The Gendarmerie are those who have been newly initiated, and are now fully fledged members of the Guard. They have been deemed ready for combat, but are still considered a recruit within the Guard. The footmen must obey and respect all those above him in the hierarchy, and must first receive a word of recommendation from a Palatine or above before they can display the Guards colours in battle. Initiate The initiate is the unoathed of the order. They receive basic training until the time at which their loyalty can be proven, and they can take an official oath in the sight of God and the High Command. The initiates are not officially in the Guard until the moment at which they have been inducted. SELECTION For entrance into the Palatine Guard, one must be above the age of fourteen, male, and a member of the Church of the Canon. Those who serve the Guard do so through two routes: Via Consideration To be initiated into the Palatine via consideration, one must first apply to the Guard if they fit the requirements aforementioned. They will be given lodgings, sufficient equipment for their rank, and basic training provided their application should be accepted. If they pass as an initiate, they will be oathed and inducted to be a Gendarmerie. Via Recommendation Any on the Palatine Council can choose a worthy individual to serve in the Guard. They will be inducted into the Palatine directly, rather than having to train as an initiate. This honour is particularly rare, and only those who are renowned for their skills, traits, or standing are sought out in such a way. OATHING When an Initiate has passed their trials, and proven themselves capable of joining the order in full, they shall undergo a ceremony, which shall take place in a recognised chapel and is to be attended by the Kaplan and Commandant. There, the initiate shall take a new name, and swear his oath to the Holy Mother Church and to the Guard. The following is based on transcripts of the oath made by initiates of the last Palatine Guard. Priest: Lo! And behold, for GOD seeks guardians for His flock. You, whose fate is to serve at the fringe of His light, and defend those within from the encroaching abyss. Yet know this fate is the will of the Creator, and as you take upon yourself the mantle of His flock’s protection, you take upon yourself a new name. Commandant: Your tenets. Initiate: (Lists the tenets.) Priest: Ye, who have been deemed fit to guard His flock, mutter unto me the Saintly entity which your very personage seeks most to embody. Initiate: (Personally chosen Saint.) Commandant: You shall know him as your Patron. Priest: Ye, who have been deemed fit to guard His flock. As the Code and the Creator’s light entwine themselves with your very being, rebirth! Now mutter unto me that name which shall be thine Palatine Name. Initiate: (Chosen Palatine name.) Priest: Now pray unto the Skies (chosen name) and give your oath to GOD, and to the Holy Mother Church. Initiate: The initiate takes a knee. If I should falter in my course, send me never to the skies above If I should succeed, bestow unto me His blessings, forevermore For, now I march into a valley through which there is no path And the stones cascade behind me, to seal my retreat Though in this valley, I find my Brothers Now I am named Guardian of His Flock Should I falter, my shield shall turn to ash From the shadow into the light. Priest: The priest anoints them in holy water. Ex umbra in solem. Rise.
  5. THE PONTIFICAL ENTHRONEMENT OF 1693 10th of the Harren’s Folley, 1693 The sun shone with great vibrancy in Carolustadt on the eve of the conclave as the new Vicar of God was elected. Bells tolled across cathedrals and churches in Atlas at the knowledge of the news. The doors of the cathedral burst open with great mirth at the declaration. The Vice Chancellor stands beside the Pontiff-Elect; he then begins to recite the Prayer of Penitence ☩ "Almighty and most merciful Creator, we have wandered and strayed from your ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against your holy laws. We have left undone those things that we ought to have done; and we have done those things that we ought not to have done; and there is no health in us. But you, O Lord, have mercy upon us sinners. Spare those who confess their faults. Restore those who are penitent, according to your promises declared to mankind in Horen our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Creator, for his sake, that we may live a disciplined, righteous and godly life, to the glory of your holy name. So say we all." ☩ It is then that Elwood, Co-adjutor bishop of Rhodesia, was presented to his fellow clergy, bearing a humble white frock and scarlet mozzetta. Vice Chancellor Theodoric of Markev continued; “With the Lord Creator our witness and guide, it has been divined that the Most Reverend Bishop, Elwood of Carolustadt, has been willed to fulfill the seat of the Church Pontificate. Do you heed the call of Our Creator to bear this vocation? “I do so believe.” “You have been ordained in our church, your household names forsaken and your life devoted in sole service to the teachings of our Creator. The vows of your past vocations remain firm; now you must make the declaration of assent.” Vice Chancellor Theodoric of Markev then reads the Assent, preserved from a different time. “The Church of Faithful is the One, Holy and Rightful Church of the Creator , worshiping the one true God, The Creator. It professes the faith uniquely revealed in the Holy Scrolls and set forth in the Faithful creeds, which faith the Church is called upon to proclaim afresh in each generation. Led by the Holy Light, it has borne witness to Faithful truth in its historic formulates, the Articles of Faith, The Book of Saints. In the declaration you are about to make, will you affirm your loyalty to this inheritance of faith as your inspiration and guidance under God in bringing the grace and truth of Horen to this generation and making Him known to those in your care?” “I, Elwood, do so affirm, and accordingly declare my belief in the faith which is revealed in the Holy Scrolls and set forth in the Faithful creeds and to which the historic formularies of the Church of The Creator bear witness; and in public prayer and administration of the sacraments, I will use only the forms of service which are authorized or allowed by Canon.” Elwood replied. Do you accept the Holy Scrolls as revealing all things necessary for eternal salvation through faith? "I do so accept them." "Will you be diligent in prayer, in reading Holy Scrolls, and in all studies that will deepen your faith and fit you to bear witness to the truth of the Word?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you lead your people in proclaiming the glorious Word of Horen, so that the good news of salvation may be heard in every place?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you teach the doctrine of Horen as the Church of Faith has received it, will you refute error, and will you hand on entire the faith that is entrusted to you?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you be faithful in ordaining and commissioning ministers of the Church?" "By the help of God, I will." Will you be gentle and merciful for Horen’s sake to those who are in need, and speak for those who have no other to speak for them? "By the help of God, I will." "Will you endeavor to fashion your own life and that of your household according to the way of God and make your home a place of hospitality and welcome?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you work with your fellow servants in the Church for the sake of the kingdom of God?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you accept the discipline of this Church, exercising authority with justice, courtesy and love, and always holding before you the example of Horen?" "By the help of God, I will." "Will you then, in the strength of the Holy Light, continually stir up the gift of God that is in you, that the good news of God may be proclaimed in all the Realm?" "By the help of God, I will." "Speak thus then the oath of the Pontificate, with the conclave and God as witness." "I vow to change nothing of the received Tradition, and nothing thereof I have found before me guarded by my God-pleasing predecessors, to encroach upon, to alter, or to permit any innovation therein; To the contrary: with glowing affection as her truly faithful student and successor, to safeguard reverently the passed-on good, with my whole strength and utmost effort; To cleanse all that is in contradiction to the canonical order, should such appear; to guard the Holy Canons and Decrees of our Saints and Pontiffs as if they were the divine ordinance of Heaven, because I am conscious of Thee, whose place I take through the Grace of God, whose Vicarship I possess with Thy support, being subject to severest accounting before Thy Divine Tribunal over all that I shall confess; I swear to God Almighty and the Favored son Horen that I will keep whatever has been revealed through Horen and His Successors and whatever the Saints and my predecessors have defined and declared. I will keep without sacrifice to itself the discipline and the rite of the Church. I will put outside the Church whoever dares to go against this oath, may it be somebody else or I. If I should undertake to act in anything of contrary sense, or should permit that it will be executed, Thou willst not be merciful to me on the dreadful Day of Divine Justice. Accordingly, without exclusion, We subject to severest excommunication anyone -- be it Ourselves or be it another -- who would dare to undertake anything new in contradiction to this constituted Tradition and the purity of the Faith and the Faithful religion, or would seek to change anything by his opposing efforts, or would agree with those who undertake such a blasphemous venture." As his oath come to close, Theodoric washes the face of Elwood and anoints his forehead with scented oils. "Cleansed of worldly taint, you are reborn in the Creator's vision. Your heart blessed in the eternal compassion and truth of Horen; your soul aflame with the benevolent justice and fervor of Owyn; your body awash with the incredulous miracles and charisma of Godfrey; your mind attuned to the unworldly wisdom and vigor of Siegmund." Theodoric then garbs Elwood in the pontifical cloth, and bestows the pontifical ferula. "By this you are known to all as preserver of truths and lord spiritual." "I announce a great Blessing; we have a new Pontiff!" The Most Eminent and Most Reverend Elwood, High Pontiff of the Canonist Faith who takes to himself the name DANIEL V

Therefore, there will be no tolerance to toxicity and if a player finds themselves making toxic comments or harassing other individuals in the warzone they can expect to find themselves banned for the duration of the warzone.

  10. IGN(s): Caranthir_ Age 17 Timezone GMT Discord: Caranthir#1962 What map did you join during?: Vailor Do you have access to a Microphone? Yes Average Daily Play Time? Usually 4 hours on a weekday, and 5 or above on a weekend. Have you held any LotC staff position(s) before? If so, for how long?: I've been an Forum Moderator and Manager in the recent past - put together roughly for 5 consecutive months. Unfortunately I stepped down over time constraints during that period, which have now fortunately dissipated. Do you have prior history in any forms of moderation? Apart from mediating between furious friends or family members, of which I have much experience, I haven't any training specifically in moderation. Though as stated before I was a Forum Team Manager, in which time I helped solve disputes between enraged players. Why do you want to join the GM Team?: I want to join the GM team simply to have a tangible, noticeable, effect on how people view the moderation of the community. My time spent moderating the forums showed me how little many people respect our staff, and I would like to be given the opportunity to prove that we can be fair and even-handed, and also to aid in improving communication lines between the two. The link between staff and player is an important one. One which cannot be easily summed up in one short paragraph for a GM application. But nevertheless it is imperative that we do our best to restore old enmities between the two, especially as the server is looking forward to its transition into 7.0 – which I personally believe will be a testing time for that relationship. I thoroughly believe I hold the necessary qualities to be accepted onto the team – which can be vouched for by others. I’m attentive, diligent, and knowledgeable. Most(*) people will say that I have a terrible sense of humour, but I like to differ on that specific one. Possessing these things, I believe, is absolutely necessary to even be considered for the team. Attentiveness is necessary in the understanding of situations, and using a subjective eye to look past the black and white aspects that others may see – down to the roots of a potential problem. I think I am apt to utilise this if accepted onto the team, as steady hands who are consistent on issues and stay focused are vital to the basic, routine work that the GM Team does on a day-to-day basis. Diligence is, for a moderator, a very important quality that I believe I have. Diligence means going beyond just resolving an issue in the short-term. From my experience as an FM Manager, I learnt that to fully resolve a situation we must go beyond into the long-term. This can be exemplified from the most simplistic of things, such as checking up with a player after a modreq to make sure their issue is still solved, or through going above and beyond in the investigation of an problem that a player or group of players may have. Last, but by no means least, moderators must hold with them the ability to be knowledgeable. Nobody knows everything, but the ones who excel are those who are able to use their understanding of a specific situation or mindset – which may be negative – and then use it to solve difficulties or complications that people may have. Taking, for want of an example, pvp. I understand PVP, what it entails, the reasons behind it, and the difficulties that surround it in terms of staff regulations. Therefore, when I go to answer a modreq related to combat or observe a pvp event; I know how, when, and what to enforce or punish, and then to move forwards in the aftermath of such. Through the skillsets listed above, I feel as if I have an ability to positively progress as a GM on the server – which is what motivates me to want to join the team, and to subsequently write this application. Have you applied for this position before and been denied? If so, link the application: Sadly not. Anything else you want to tell us?: Not necessarily, but I would like to thank you for spending the time to read this application.

    A Letter of Abdication

    A Letter Of Abdication By His Imperial Highness’ own hand it is written: In the Palace of Caesaromagnus 10th of Sigismund’s End, 1691 Signed: Alexander Frederick, Imperial Prince of the Empire of Man, Duke of Alba and Furnestock, Lord Keeper of the Privy Seal. Over a decade ago, I first appeared as the Privy Seal to the Emperor. My thoughts were that I may have proved happy in service to the land that I love. Of this object I have never lost sight, though sad experience now teaches me that selfish views are now so prevalent amongst us all, that they have smothered the virtues that we prescribe to our Empire. The strength of this land, the fierce loyalty to the country - which ought to warm the hearts and minds of every citizen living within its borders - has provided us to build the tools with which we may all enjoy the same rights and liberties to our common folk that we feel now. My ascension to Speaker of the Parliament, I had hoped, would allow me to see this task through; which I believe heartily would have rendered our Empire invulnerable. Yet it is my own inclination that this task can never be fulfilled. Despite my undertaking of the arduous task of obtaining the peace, security, and stability we all wish for, it seems that a change of sentiments in our precious Parliament has labelled me unable to ever make the aforementioned so. I must therefore, to end conflict from amongst ourselves, make a final decision as to my standing. A long experience and an attention to recent events which have progulmated within our lands, have prepared me to the thought that I am no longer of utility to this Empire. My hour has now come; and I am therefore resolved to resign from all my titles, ancestral and nominal. To the former, I give all that I have to my name to my son and heir, John Alexander. There are those who exist now that are not unworthy of the kindness that I feel towards them, and that I believe I shall hereafter forever love as my friends and devoted servants. The Empire may depend on me to continue with an arduous attention to serving GOD and living a pious and holy life of the Cloth. May all the wise providence that I have dispatched within this notice and throughout my life direct His Imperial Majesty in assisting and guiding His conduct towards restoring morality within the hearts of Men, and may he strike down every evil that has plagued us. I rest now in comfort that, through the endeavors of the Crown and its successors, our home and land may be kept guarded and safe from the evil and hate that wish to see it slain. HORENVS : VINCIT : HORENVS : REIGNAT : HORENVS : IMPERIAT IN NOMINE DEI, Alexander.
