    Broken Bottle

    “Bottle Wick died for us so that others might find courage to stand in the face of great adversity.” the youngest Alimar brother observes from the Skies.
  2. On the State of Affairs Issued and Confirmed by the Lord Regent Prince Georg Stanimar 7th of Owyn’s Light, 1720 Prince Georg addresses a gathered crowd at Prikaz. Va Birodeo Herzenav ag Edlervik, I seek to clarify the nature of our realm and the policies laid out regarding the current status. It is important for our kingdom to have certainty, stability, and strong leadership. Ever since I became Lord Palatine, the Royal Government has done just that. Now that we have embarked on our course, Haense continues to be defined by the strong resolve of our people and the determination to protect our sovereignty. The unity among the great houses and the strong sense of agency among all our denizens merits a nation that reflects great values and courage. My mandate comes from the unwavering conviction that we always seek the common good, to govern as good and honest as our people. In regards to our military, I have sought to oversee His Majesty’s reform along with our Inspector-Generals so that once it is completed, we will create a unified and stalwart arm to manifest the ideals of justice and the strength of the King’s will. In the present policy, I hope to clarify to our vassals that the levies created shall be provisional forces and will serve as the basis for integrating the soldiers into a force under the purview of the Crown. In this same spirit, our reforms aim to create ranks that diversify and include the many characteristics of a vassalage that is determined to uphold the will of our mission. We enjoin this trust that levies instituted will serve as a backbone in manifesting the reform of centrality. It is under this belief that the policy itself promote the unity among our ranks and guarantees a stronger realm. It is why I called a general election to ensure that the people are invigorated and express their beliefs and conviction within the kingdom and the capital. We are ardent in the belief that a stronger and more stable Haense is one that embraces the will of GOD and the confidence of our subjects to reorient a society that is right and just. The protection of our integrity and the civil discourse that occurs among our people is inherently at the core of our identity. The policies of our realm cannot and will not be shirked by the anxieties abroad, and it is my determination to keep the will of our people as the primary agent of my mandate. We must, within us, spark anew the vigor of the Highlander Spirit. In doing so, I seek to revitalize the confidence of our people and ensure that the king’s justice is maintained and preserved in the North. The years upcoming are ones that will be arduous no doubt, but I am certain and absolutely convinced that a strong, stable, and resolute chancellery will deliver what is needed to our people most. May GOD bless His Majesty and the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska. IV JOVEO MAAN, His Highness, Prince Georg Stanimar of the House of Barbanov-Alimar, Lord Regent of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, Lord Palatine of the Realm, and Protector of the Highlanders
  3. THE CHANCELLOR’S REPORT Issued and Confirmed by the Lord Regent Prince Georg Stanimar 8th of Horen’s Calling, 1720 Va Birodeo Herzenav ag Edlervik, REGARDING THE WAR With the progression of the warfront now entering within the eve of the second year, I seek to reassure the denizens of the realm that His Majesty’s Royal Government is continuing to provide and allocate the necessary resources in preparations for defenses. As such, I am issuing a decree that all noble houses shall mobilize their levymen and procure to the capital, shipments of mortar and masons. Furthermore, I hereby suspend the Royal Levy Ban of 1709 and charge that the great Haeseni Houses impose writs to draft their men to Reza to enjoin ranks with the capital forces, effective immediately. This act shall take effect and expire when His Majesty’s Royal Government issues a decree in regards to military reform. REGARDING THE GENERAL ELECTION With the close of the Haeseni General Election of 1719, I, as Lord Palatine of the Realm, do hereby certify the votes of the following candidates who shall be summoned by the Lord Speaker of the Royal Duma to sit in His Majesty’s House of Peers as Royal Aldermen. Therefore, the government affixes its seal of approval and does hereby declare that Ser Wilheim Barclay and Brog Dhoon have taken the majority of votes and will be the victors for the office aforementioned. We hereby certify the incumbent, Lord Maer Butch, to be re-elected for another term as head of the municipal government of the Royal City of Reza. He shall concurrently retain his seat in the Royal Duma. REGARDING HIS MAJESTY’S AULIC COUNCIL After a lengthy period of over half a century of devoted service to the Crown, we announce the retirement of Lord Justiciar Swithun from the Royal Cabinet. His Majesty the King and myself impart our sincere gratitude for work in the legal codex, for presiding over the judicial courts and dispensing the king’s justice for the last decade. Swithun’s work as a royal scrivener and a vital member of the regency during the succession crisis of 1668 merits profound accolades from the entire nation. We wish him godspeed in his retirement and continue to draw from his experience to counsel the Royal Administration. Furthermore, I hereby appoint Ser Gerard of House Stafyr to the Office of Lord Justiciar. He shall be given the confidence of this government to dispense the king’s justice and preside over the courts of law in the name of His Majesty. We hereby affix our seal of approval and entrust in his diligence as a guardian of Haeseni law. May GOD bless His Majesty and the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska. IV JOVEO MAAN, His Highness, Prince Georg Stanimar of the House of Barbanov-Alimar, Lord Regent of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, Lord Palatine of the Realm, and Protector of the Highlanders
  4. @Emenzi An Uncle’s Letter 10th of Sigismund’s End, 1719 To my nephew, Andrik, I write to you with my mind on the great burdens that you will soon inherit. For when the time comes that I must pass this full responsibility to your hands, I look at you with a deep sense of empathy, for the times will test your will and strength unceasingly. However, I know in my heart that you possess a unique strength that will soon command the confidence of men and the people whom bound by oath and trust in you, shall see that you a resolute leader. I teach you our history so that you do not ever forget the legacy that you have been tasked to protect and pass on. Generations of kings who sat in your place, who mourned the problems of their time, have all been tested in each and every way. Some were victorious champions of humanity like Petyr I. Some were ambitious but allowed their voracious appetite to treachery like Andrik II, your namesake. Some were humbled by crippling defeat like Marius I, which tempered the determination for Highlander unity. Some were adamant protectors of the faith in the midst of odds like Otto II. Some did whatever they could to protect the sovereignty of our kingdom from threats across like that of Otto III, Sigmar I, and Robert I. Your father did what he could in the years that GOD bore witness to his life and I know fully that he would want you to stand brave and strong in the midst of all adversity. I am confident as ever that despite whatever plagues our time, GOD puts good and honest men to rise above the times and dispense what is right and just for all of our people. You, my nephew, have been given this extraordinary call to lead your people when it needs stability and certainty the most. I have and kept my promise to your father to raise you and teach you what it means to rule. However, I have accepted the fact that I cannot do that until you learn on your own what it means to be a good man. Never look at your enemies with malice, but let prudent judgment and a steady hand in the battlefield and in the court be the arm with which you act against all who your people are harmed by. Seek the advice of those who love you, pray to the saints whose eyes watch over you, and seek inner strength from the generations of men who have stood in your place. I seek only to be candid, Andrik, in telling you that the crown of kings is not unlike a crown of thorns which will inflict many wounds upon you, but it is out of love for your subjects and our duty to your ancestral roots that you wear it with honor and dignity. As you grow and when you read this letter one year from now, or five years from now, or fifty years from now, may you look at this as the words of a loving uncle who has always wanted what is best for you and for the family name of the great House of Barbanov. With sincerity, Uncle Georg

  6. An Address from the Lord Palatine Issued and Confirmed by His Highness Prince Georg Stanimar 9th of Owyn’s Light, 1719 Va Birodeo Herzenav e Edlerik, Shortly preceding my address to you, my beloved brethren of the North, I took the time to remember my predecessor, Lord Leopold Stafyr, whose service in this place, to the Crown and to the welfare of the realm is immense. May the saints and prophets in the Seven Skies duly grant him repose and welcome him among their heavenly dominion. In this place, I address the kingdom with sincerity and resolve. The Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska is a realm that has stood unwavering in the face of great odds, united in the cause for humanity, and remains true to the values of holy virtue and the liberties of men. Here again, in the midst of these arduous moments, we are tested once more as we have been in the days of our fathers, judged by our measure and capacity to carry out these values. We are reminded of the sacrifices that those who came before us have made, that in this same spirit, we persist in protecting our sovereignty. The sovereignty and integrity of the Highlanders is placed at the crosshairs of human conflict. Our identity is again challenged by the external affairs of malicious intentions combined with the struggling confidence within our land. However, I remain ever more confident that the strength of our people can never be weakened by any power or dominion. We are a steadfast nation, full of bountiful grace and strength to carry on the duties and responsibilities of maintaining a free and just people. After being conferred this responsibility by the king, I will now form a government that is as good and honest as our people. As Head of His Majesty’s Royal Government, we will commit to giving back to the populace, strengthening the authority and sanctity of the Crown, and ensuring the needs of our realm are properly met. Under my administration, we will swiftly enact reforms to reinvigorate the fabric of our society: We will build a stronger defense and reform within our Royal Armed Forces Develop our city’s infrastructure to create a safe and beautiful urban life Keep our promise to the hinterlands and invest more heavily in rural Haeseni life Reduce excess and decadence at court and within the Royal Administration Ensure greater unity among our vassals In doing so, our kingdom will be ever more poised to stand up to the challenges of our times. It is in this effort that I know we can truly honor Lord Leopold’s vision for Haense and that of the sacrifices our fathers have made to the prosperity of our hearth. THE CHANCELLOR’S REPORT, 1719 In the transition that we have just completed, I seek to inform the realm of the intentions of the Royal Government for the upcoming years. Firstly, I am appointing Prince Otto Sigmar of the House of Barbanov-Alimar and Mister Thomas Raleigh to serve in the newly and temporarily created post of Inspector General of the Royal Army of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska. They shall be charged with counseling His Majesty’s Government in reforms and strengthening the organizational structure of the army, to work in an advisory capacity with the Lord Marshal and the Knight Paramount to carry out all marshal necessities in reinforcing strong defense and discipline. This office shall serve at the pleasure of the Lord Palatine and will be dismissed when their purpose is fulfilled. Secondly, the Royal Government will be focusing on the infrastructure of the Capital City of Reza. It has come to my attention and that of the Lord Seneschal of greater need for labor and supplies to adequately support the structures, both military and civilian, within the kingdom. A saint’s daily wage will be provided to those who contribute to the projects prioritized by the Office of the Lord Seneschal. In this regard, this government shall seek to readily train and appoint new city stewards to assist the Lord Seneschal. Thirdly, this government will look to the interior. I am hereby creating the office of the Lord Castellan to the Aulic Council, whose role shall be the oversight of vassal estates and landed noble holdings. His duties shall also extend toward overseeing and reporting to His Majesty’s government of the development of all civilian and military settlements within the interior lands of the North and all places subject to our jurisdiction outside of the capital city of Reza and the County of Leuven. An appointment shall be made in the upcoming saint’s days. Lastly, I have decided that I will call a general election for the Aldermen seats in the Royal Duma and the Lord Maer of the Capital City of Reza to be held within the coming saint’s days. It is needed to ensure that our political institutions are refreshed and open to aspiring citizens to run for these respective offices. Therefore, the seats of Lord Maer Butch, Alderman Fabius Bracchus, and Alderman Martin Kortrevich shall be subject of these elections. As we look toward the future of our kingdom, let us entrust our hopes and prayers to the Seven Skies, in whose name we pledge our virtues and strengthen our determination to create a kingdom stronger for our people. In this new capacity, I offer a prayer for the prosperity of our citizenry and the harmonious reign of His Majesty the King: GOD, in whose mercy and power we depend, Look kindly on the afflicted, Look mercifully on those who have sinned, Look justly at those who have wronged, Look benevolently at those who seek peace, And may the unity of men be brought to you, To consecrate with our love and joy, That we as a kingdom be brought to fulfillment. HONOR AND HONESTY IN HAENSE! Signed, His Highness, Prince Georg Stanimar of the House of Barbanov-Alimar, Lord Speaker and Herzen of the Royal Duma, Lord Palatine of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska
  7. “Truly a great loss to humanity. He will be remembered as a great servant to the realm, a father, and a friend to our people,” Prince Georg laments as he commemorated his colleague upon hearing Leopold’s death.
  8. @Caranthir_ @_Stigwig Regarding the Integrity of the North: A Response to John Alexander 10th of Tobias’ Bounty, 1717 To Mr. John Alexander, I write to you in the spirit of your recent publication regarding your charges that the House of Barbanov has “forfeited its claim in treason,” for this is mischaracterized and falsely stated. Before even addressing this matter at hand, it is quite clear that the circumstances of your words seem to be conceived out of personal avarice and most opportune to take advantage of the current state of affairs. If you had cared even remotely about the denizens whom you call your kin, you would have addressed the issues that the Pertinaxi Dynasty had committed long before this whole conflict had ensued. Peace is our objective here. Unity is the resolve. Sowing dissent within the family name and that of North only affords you greater detriment, counterintuitive to the goal you had espoused in preserving the integrity of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska. Returning to your assertion that the House of Barbanov as it currently stands is jeopardizing itself if it does not cease its efforts against Renatus. The statement you make is inherently a form of treachery to the family and kingdom to which you claim to seek to save. Your statement regarding the treasonous acts that the Royal family has committed by fighting is wrongly stated. The Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska was bound by oath and fealty to the Empire of Man when its declaration of loyalty was made under Emperor Aurelius Canonius in 1678. If you do not recall, these oaths were duly dissolved by Emperor Anthony Pertinaxi: “So I shall leave, this time on a permanent pilgrimage. To return to continue past my fathers grave in search for my grandfather. However, I shall not carry the weight of the failed promise to my father to his grave. I shall not see him once more with an empire which is not equal to the one I promised. So I shall release all my lawful vassals, signers of the reign of Antonius from there fealty to the Empire. I shall be the last Emperor of Man, with me the title shall destroyed alongside the Empire” A RETURN TO DUST, 1715 Thusly, all obligations of fealty have been negated by the Empire of Man, releasing Haense and that of the other vassal states who were once pledged by GOD to serve any empire. We stand unequivocally with the judgment of our liege, King Marius II of the House of Barbanov, in whose name GOD has bestowed the protection and welfare of the Highlanders. You insult the very titles and ancestral roots of this realm, slandering your kin and turning your back against the people of the North in exchange for political expediency bribed to you by Renatus, a people who do not hold the best interest of Haense. I address to you personally, as a man of character. I do not write against Renatus, in whose struggle for unity among men is of a different caliber. I direct this to you personally, for you to see your erroneous words. I pray you see the wronging of this regard, and I speak from my personal opinion, and in the spirit of the Highlanders that we do not take your absurdity with any regard. May GOD keep you from committing further such transgressions to our hallowed people.

  10. A Treatise on Imperial Authority: Discerning the Questions of Jurisprudence and the Legitimacy of the Marnantine Revolution 13th of Tobias’ Bounty, 1715 Denizens of Humanity, The present course with which we find ourselves is indeed one of great strife, division, and disunion. Truly, it has come to the point of irreversibility where the conscience of Man has been tested to the very core. I write out of personal conviction to discern these issues and bring to light why the Marnantine Revolution has truly illustrated the unity of Man and the legitimacy of the divine right to rule. Therefore, I shall divide my treatise into three parts to convey these ideas with clarity and frankness: The Divine Right and the Lawful Regime Unlike that of the Pertinaxi and the pretenders that lay claim to this tainted dynastic era, the Marnantine Revolution has merited out of its own sheer stewardship the mandate of the Seven Skies. As evident in this point, humanity has been guided by GOD above to coalesce together in the service of the greater good: to rid ourselves of the wretched men who have for so long unjustly governed and disposed the lives of humanity. The total disregard of Faith, the disrespect against GOD, and the pervasion of unjust dominion has brought itself onto the very bearers of such malice. The consequence is self-evident: the truth that all who fail in their obligation to GOD shall fall beneath the sword of vigilance. Joseph Marna, having duly coronated by the Vicar of GOD himself, has won favor with the Seven Skies. All of humanity and those who do not trace their racial lineage to Horen have recognized that the Seven Skies has appointed another to serve undisputedly as Fidei Defensor. The cause of Marna is a cause consecrated by the communion of saints, upheld by the Scrolls, and guided by tradition to restore the virtues of Horen that have been lost since the dawn of the Aurelian regime. In contrast, pretenders of the Pertinaxi line have desperately sought to hold onto power that has been evidently stripped upon them by the metaphysical. The justice of GOD has been dispensed and that sacred trust transferred to the rightful heirs of Horen’s covenant and the divine right to govern his people. The Popular Support of the Nations for Marnantine Revolt An Imperial dominion is, no uncertain terms, one that upholds the juridical and political union that binds a civilization together with the implication of security, cooperation, and good-will. Let us first reflect what the histories of our time have to say regarding this matter. The Renatian Empire began its conquest with the vices of wrath, avarice, and corruption plaguing their heart. Beginning with regicide and fratricide upon a boy barely of age to take the Crown that was duly his divine right, the Renatian Empire had no claim nor favor. Moreover, it is why the many nations following this crime have since distrusted the intentions of this regime. Since these times, Renatus has betrayed the trust and integrity with its sovereign neighbors. It is a regime built upon the blood of innocents, the violation of the Peace and Truce of GOD, and the expense of those who follow the right. It is what compels nations near and far, human and non-human alike, to understand the objective immorality that the Pertinaxi Dynasty has imposed on the people for far too long. It is why the times have brought us to these ends, not to spill more senselessness into a costly war, but for a cause that transcends the human experience: to cure the plague that wracks us all. On the Affirmation of Marna’s Sovereignty As I have laid out the issues facing our time, I compel those to understand the solution that we ought to consider, for ourselves and for our posterity. The question of natural rights, the question of justice, the question of goodness, the question of the self-determination of sovereignty is nigh. As I have mentioned, GOD favors Marna. The people favor Marna. This new order bridges the interests of man and divine alike, securing a peace and prosperous regime that will serve in the interests of all. No more do we fear the arbitrary whims of the Pertinaxi and their pretenders. We look toward a civilization that embraces vassal allegiance, the peace and cooperation of foreign powers, the rule of law, and the values of the Canon. The Marnantine Revolution is a cause greater than the times. It is one that proceeds from the virtues of Horen, recognizing the value of its people. The time for us to fear is over. The time to build is before us. I assert to my audience that Joseph I is the rightful and duly favored Emperor of Man, with GOD as my witness and my fellow brethren to attest to this fact, I write to you in earnest zeal. To those pretenders, the true and rightful Emperor of Man yields to none. Rebels are enemies of the peace and adverse to the unity and grace of Horen’s virtues. With all powers and dominion of the Seven Skies, may all who have eyes to see and ears to hear bear witness to these words: Emperor Joseph I is Holy Orenian Emperor, Head of the Commonwealth of Man, and Protector of our Liberties

This document shall amend a third provision of the Rural Development Act of 1711; Farm plots may be purchased by a fair market cost, to be determined by the House of the Seneschal. These plots may be subjected to taxes at the Duma’s discretion. All farmlands will remain a public utility, and regulated as such. A minimum of 40% of agricultural products yielded from public farmlands must be placed on the public market, or sold to clients. The remaining products may be used for private purposes, donated, or sold for profit. Crops lost to man-made, external destruction will be deducted from the net produce mandated to be sold on the market, giving farmers the liberty to decide how to use their remaining produce. The price of the crops sold shall be determined entirely by the farmer. If crops are unable to be sold before spoiling, they may be repossessed and used for private purposes. Privately owned farms are not subjected to this amendment.

The Hallucinogens Ban of 1713 Issued by the Royal Duma and Confirmed by His Majesty King Marius II 10th of the Sun’s Smile, 1713 An Act To ban the usage, selling and possession of hallucinogens and narcotics within the entirety of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska. On the nature of hallucinogen prohibition “The purchase of some product may pose a threat to the wellbeing of others within the nation, and thus, those, too, may have to be regulated. It is not simply material objects which could pose a threat, it may be cultural deviancy, as well. The citizenry must ultimately determine what material objects and abstract ideas are beneficial, and which ones are detrimental.” -The Sanoist Compendium The usage, selling and possession of narcotic substances and the likes offers no benefit to our society, ‘drugs’ are in fact a threat to the wellbeing of our citizenry, as they delude the senses, trouble the health of the people and cause instability and disturbances amongst the population. It is therefore that a ban on hallucinogens is to be instituted, to purge this societal ill and protect the people of our Kingdom from such detrimental substances. On the nature of the incense The only exception to this law is to be the usage of incense by the clergy in clerical matters related to the church such as a mass or a funeral. This is because incense is not a substance that is hurtful to the populace when used appropriately and it has been a cornerstone to canonist traditions for ages, hence it should be considered part of our cultural and spiritual heritage and protected.
