  1. The Petrovic Reforms 1st of Horen’s Calling, 1750 | 4th of Julya and Piov, 303 ES Named after King Petyr due to the likeness of his military reforms ushered in by the formation of the Kingdom of Haense, the Petrovic Reforms aim to create efficiency within the military structure of Haense as well as to create incentives for the nobility and military alike. Both play an important role in the defense of Haense and shall be incorporated in the reforms below. The Lord Marshal will have complete authority over all the soldiers of Haense, aside from the knights of the realm who are protected under the Knight Paramount’s authority and jurisdiction. The Brotherhood of Saint Karl shall be recognized as the Auwn Ezred of Haense and will serve as the royal infantry of the kingdom. Their command structure will be determined by the Commandant of the Brotherhood with advice from fellow officers so that the best structure may be implemented. The Chapter of the Black Cross is hereby dissolved and its responsibilities delegated to the Dres Ezred. The Chapter of the Destrier is hereby dissolved and its responsibilities delegated to the Dres Ezred. The Zwein Ezred of Haense is hereby commissioned. The Zwein Ezred will be directly overseen by a hand picked Commandant to serve as a liaison between the Lord Marshal and the Zwein Ezred. It will consist of the authorized retinues of the Kingdom of Haense. Not every House will have an authorized retinue, nor will they be required to maintain one. The creation of a noble retinue must be directly approved by the King of Haense himself, and may not exceed the limits set by the Crown as per the House’s titular status. It may also remain below the limitations set. Houses of Baronial status shall be able to maintain up to eight hundred ((8)) bannermen. Houses of Comital status shall be able to maintain up to thirteen hundred ((13)) bannermen. Houses of Ducal status shall be able to maintain up to eighteen hundred ((18)) bannermen. Those houses currently authorized to possess a noble retinue are as follows: The House of Baruch The House of Ruthern The House of Kovachev Each retinue shall be commanded by a captain nominated by the House’s lord, subject to the approval of the Lord Marshal and/or His Majesty’s Government. These captains will report directly to the Commandant of the Zwein Ezred or, in the absence of one, to the Lord Marshal himself or a designated officer of the Auwn Ezred. The Dres Ezred of Haense is hereby commissioned. The Dres Ezred will be commanded by the Knight Paramount of Haense. It will be composed of the Golden Hussars and any future knightly orders commissioned in Haense. However, soldiers who are knighted within other Ezreds will be able to remain in that Ezred if they so choose. Sodiers of the Auwn Ezred who serve for a minimum of 10 years and achieve the rank of armiger shall be recognized for their efforts and will be considered to receive a farmstead. The farmstead will be given to the soldier’s family for the extent of their life and the lives of their children. Soldiers recognized for this privilege will be chosen at the discretion of their commanding officers and the Lord Marshal. Soldiers will also be equipped with food, weaponry, armor, and housing for the duration of their service as well. The Zwein Ezred is expected to equip their own soldiers. Arrangements can be made with the Lord Marshal to equip soldiers in the Zwein Ezred if found to be necessary. Noble houses who develop quality soldiers will be recognized for those efforts. The maintaining of a healthy retinue and a strong rally will make Houses more likely to receive titular elevations following a royal review. These reviews are conducted at the discretion of the King of Haense and his council and may ask for the division to rally similar numbers presented to them in another battle or at a Royal Demonstration. Exemplary service by noblemen as higher ranking officers in the Auwn Ezred will also be rewarded and taken into consideration during a royal review. The Zwein Ezred shall not be allowed to recruit within the walls of the royal city of Reza. It is the Auwn Ezred, or the Brotherhood of Saint Karl’s, sole right to do this. Auwn Ezred troops may not be enticed in any way to join a retinue after joining the Brotherhood of Saint Karl, nor may lords interfere with Brotherhood recruitment. Should the Lord Marshal also be the patriarch of a noble House, he may not command a retinue as a captain in addition to the military of Haense. He must either enter his soldiers into the First Ezred or nominate another to command the retinue of his House in his stead. A military training camp shall be established on the outskirts of Reza, comprised of tents, obstacle courses, archery ranges, and the likes. The uniforms of each soldier will be armor made by the Brotherhood of Saint Karl. However, the tabard may be designed to display appropriate noble house and knightly symbols that each soldier represents. Signed, HIS ROYAL MAJESTY, King Andrew IV of Hanseti-Ruska, Grand Hetman of the Army, Prince of Bihar, Dules, Ulgaard, Lahy, Sorbesborg and Slesvik, Duke of Carnatia and Videus, Margrave of Rothswald, Count of Graiswald, Karikhov, Baranya, Kvasz, Kavat, Karovia, Kovachgrad, Torun, Turov, and Kaunas, Baron of Rhysburg, Venzia, Esenstadt, Krepost and Kralta, Lord of Alban, Reza, Markev, Lord of the Westfolk, Protector of the Highlanders, etcetera

  4. A Roleplayer’s Guide to Haense Many players have a basic understanding of what Haense is; your typical House Stark-esque Northerner Roleplay or even some sort of Russian hybrid, but let us blow your mind by saying we are much more than what you skim off the surface. Haense is one of Humanity’s longest lasting continuous player bases on this server– having been formulated around the year 1491, which is over 254 years of ingame roleplay (or roughly 5 years of our real life time). It is even longer if you want to calculate the age of the other player bases Haense was originally derived from. Through the amalgamation of several other cultures, Haense would form its own unique and independent identity of which you see present today. This Guide will go into further detail of the livelihoods, history and culture of the Haeseni People and their daily life, in order to give players the ability to further comprehend what exactly a Haeseni is and how they may partake in such endeavours. CONTENTS I. Introduction ➣ What is Haense? ➣ Who Leads Haense? II. How to Roleplay a Haenseman ➣ The Haeseni Mentality ➣ Biharism III. Society ➣ Royalty and Nobility ➣ Gentry, Burghers, and Commoners ➣ Brotherhood of Saint Karl IV. Subcultures of Haense ➣ Raevir ➣ Waldenian ➣ Hansetian V. Haeseni Values ➣ Northern Honor ➣ Tradition VI. New Marian ➣ What is New Marian? VII. Conclusion I. INTRODUCTION What is Haense? The Kingdom of Haense, formally known as the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, is a unitary state ruled under a semi-feudal constitutional monarchy, composed of two crown regions known as Hanseti and Ruska. It is ruled by a single individual known as the king, with his succession being styled in the fashion of Agnatic Primogeniture, meaning that it is typically only the first born male son that inherits the Kingdom. The Kingdom of Haense also serves as the Holy Orenian Empire’s longest continuous standing vassal, with the Imperial and Royal Family intermarrying many times over throughout the iterations of the Empire. Who Leads Haense? If you’ve ever wondered who actually is in charge of Haense, look no further. Haense is a semi-absolute Monarchy with constitutionalist tendencies, with the power mainly being with the King himself and other powers to his Duma (Duma translating roughly into Parliament). At the moment, the King of Haense is a player known as Emenzi, with his heir being AndrewTech. Due to the hereditary nature of things within the Kingdom, these two players also share the same first names, Andrik III (being the current king, Emenzi) and when AndrewTech’s character is crowned, it will be Andrik IV. Aiding these two in the everyday managing of the Kingdom is the King’s Aulic Council, handpicked members of the player base that oversee certain aspects of the nation. Chief over the Aulic Council is the Lord Palatine, a position that is considered as second in command of the Kingdom and serves as the equivalent of a real life Prime Minister. Keep in mind that Haense is dominated by a human centric playerbase, and as such most Haensemen are beholden to the curse humanity experiences due to this server’s lore. Most characters will pass away into the Seven Skies by their eighties, or earlier, making changes in the leadership quite frequent in comparison to other races. So what you see now, may not exactly be the same later on. The following people are those who hold the ability to influence the Kingdom in any capacity; His Imperial Majesty, the Holy Orenian Emperor – Peter Helane | Architecus His Majesty, the King – Andrik Lothar | Emenzi His Highness, the Crown Prince – Andrik Petyr | AndrewTech His Excellency, the Lord Palatine – Markus Kortrevich | CaptainZenny II. HOW TO ROLEPLAY A HAESENI Haense inhabits the cold plains of Northern Arcas, where temperatures drop far below the norm. As such, it is suggested that players first acclimate their characters to the cold by acquiring skins appropriate for the weather and the likes. This would include furs and other heavy articles of clothing. While the Haeseni are accustomed to the cold weather, they are still human. If you ever struggle to find such skins, simply locate one of the players listed at the bottom of this post– they will have a plethora of appropriate skins for the region Haense inhabits. While patriarchy dominates Haeseni society, waves of liberalism during its lengthy existence has allowed for much more lenient gender rights, with many occasions of political offices and military positions being held by female occupants. Traditionally though, the husband is seen as the income provider of the family, while the wife is the caretaker. In comparison to the other Provinces of the Empire, Haense is considered to be the most lax when it comes to gender discrimination in roleplay. The playerbase of Haense is very cordial OOCly towards newcomers, welcoming people from all walks of life, so while players can roleplay in Haense on their foreign characters, they will nonetheless miss out on some aspects of Haeseni Culture if they do not create a character of northern origins. How to Get Started So, you’ve finally found Haense, but upon reaching it, you have no clue what to get started on. The gates might be closed or there's no one in the City. Worry not though, travellers, many of these issues are easily explainable. If you find the gates closed upon your arrival to New Reza, it’s most likely because they have to be shut because the Kingdom is at War, and we don't really appreciate it when a band of raiders sneak into our City and start disrupting our roleplay. An easy enough solution to fix, simply shout for assistance at the gate, and someone in the center hub of the City will hear you and get help. But what if there’s no response to my cries of help? Well, it’s most likely because you’ve come at an hour when most Haeseni Players aren’t online. The vast majority of Haense are all in the Eastern Standard Time-zone (EST), located along the eastern coastline of North America. So the best time you’ll find someone online will be at around 4pm-9pm with notable exceptions for the weekends. So, now you’ve managed to get inside the City, but you have no clue what to do. If you’re looking for a quick and easy job, find the Crow’s Hearth Tavern and Inn and you’ll be set right up with a job maintaining and selling beverages at the counter there. You can ask almost anyone in town about wanting to apply, and you’ll be sent the right way. Additionally, the Tavern holds many rooms for spending the night in, so if you’ve got the minas, ask a Tavern Keeper about renting a room. If you aren’t all that interested in working in a tavern, you could instead make your way to the Royal Palace, and get in touch with the Grand Lady of the Royal Court, currently Eryane, to be considered a position within the Court as a Servant, Handmaiden, Ladies-in-waiting or Pages. Being part of the retinue of servants is a surefire way to have your name remembered by important players of Haense, as you would be in their constant presence. So if you’re looking to go big in Haense, consider being a part of the Grand Lady’s workforce. What if you’re feeling like you want to swing swords, listen to orders and do drills? Then the Brotherhood of Saint Karl is ready to accept you into its rank. Starting as an Initiate (Naumaan), the Brotherhood provides newcomers with free lodging, arms and armor, payment, rations, military training, and a chance for glory. And if you’re looking to make a name for yourself, the Brotherhood is the easiest way to achieve such. Competent and Loyal Soldiers are extremely valued within Haense, and many times, some of these soldiers even acquire Knighthood for their service after a lengthy amount of time, Knighted personally by the King during a Ceremony. If you’re unable to find a member of the Brotherhood of induct you into the ranks, contact the following members either on forums, leaving a message with someone else, or on discord; Lord Marshal, Otto Sigmar | Pureimp10 | Pureimp#4596 Erwin Barclay | Stillaminiguy | Miniguy15736#6963 Ovin | Erilobar | Erilobar#6916 By then, assuming you’ve spent some few months within Haense, one of the Noble Houses might ask you to make a character and become part of the Nobility of the Kingdom, which is the start of many political careers or other ambitions. Only on rare occasions does a newfound House rise to prominence within Haense, as many players value the current existing ones and the tradition and quality of roleplay they bring to the Kingdom. Here’s some examples on how the most notable members of Haense became part of the playerbase: There are dozens more key figures in this community’s history, but to add them all in would extend this post past several thousand words, so many apologies for those who were not added in. The Haeseni Mentality | Biharism “I would have perished had I not persisted.” The Kingdom of Haense adheres to a political ideology known as Biharism, whose namesake comes from Saint Henry Bihar. Marked down as center right on a standard political spectrum, Biharism advocates for the maintaining of tradition, nationalistic fervour and Pan-Highlanderism. This ideology dominates the political sphere of the Haeseni Government, with nearly all elected offices strictly abiding by its tenets. As a result of this ideological devotion, Haense is a strict advocate of a player’s freedom of political mobility, most well defined in the following Jorenic Rights: “To each freeman is his own life, to take it is to be a thief, To each freeman his own time, to take it is to be a slaver, To each freeman his own sword, to take it is to blind him, To each freeman his own wife, to take it is to injure him, And to each freeman his own farm, to take is to make him no man.” III. SOCIETY Royalty and Nobility Since the establishment of the kingdom, the ruling house of Hanseti-Ruska has been that of House Barbanov. As the royalty of Haense, they are highly respected individuals among the Haeseni community. Alongside the royalty of Haense, there are numerous houses of nobility that hold a similar importance and high regard within Haense. Some of these houses include, according to the peerage of Haense: Alimar, Vyronov, Ludovar, Baruch, Stafyr, Ruthern, Kortrevich, Vanir, and Barclay. These individuals can often be seen about the palace or within their respective manors. At most times, they are also assisting in the running of the Government. The Royal House of Barbanov - Led by King Andrew III of Haense-Ruska | Emenzi The Princely House of Alimar - Led by Grand Prince Otto Sigmar of Muldav | Pureimp10 The Ducal House of Vyronov - Led by Duke Robert Vyronov of Carnatia | legoboy7984 The Noble House of Baruch - Led by Count Sigmar Baruch of Ayr | drew2_dude The Noble House of Stafyr - Led by Count Erich Stafyr of Nenzing | Scourgeoforder The Noble House of Ruthern - Led by Konstantin Ruthern of Metterden | Firecrimson Gentry, Burghers, and Commoners Plenty individuals of Haense, however, are not of the nobility. There is a unique variety of commonors or those of high standing without being born of a noble house. Their importance is all the same, with many jobs for them to do and become such as tavernkeeps, guards, blacksmiths, knights, and so on. If they so wish and put in the effort, governmental positions are available outside of nobility as well. The commoners are the heart of Haense, with their loyalty and strong Haeseni culture. Brotherhood of St. Karl The Brotherhood of St. Karl is the current military force of Haense, working to guard the Haeseni lands and serve as a domestic peacekeeping force. Such a group was founded under the name of St. Karl – who is a strong historical figure amongst Haeseni history. The Brotherhood values strength, courage, and loyalty above all else– alongside unity together in protecting Haense from those who wish to bring harm to it and its people. Those seeking a military experience or a chance of glory are recommended to try joining. Even if they are not the most skilled in combat does not eliminate the chances or opportunities within the Brotherhood of St. Karl. Soldiers looking to become even more involved with the Royal Family have the option of being handpicked into the Marian Retinue, Guards that protect the King and his Family, and are always by his side whenever he is in public. Only the most diligent and competent players that come from the soldier caste will be accepted into this tight knit group of players. IV. SUBCULTURES OF HAENSE Haense has historically incorporated many cultures into its playerbase. These cultures shaped the way Haense is today, imposing their legacy in the form of many aspects, such as how the government and military operates, the Haensic traditional language (Nauvmarian), and many others. Raevir - Also known as Ruskans, denizens of an old Kingdom dating back to Anthos and pre-server history. Raevirs are a mix of Eastern Slavic People, namely the Rus, Rutherns and Novgorodians. As aforementioned, Haense in technicality is a Dual Monarchy, with the King being the Monarch of both the Kingdom of Haense and Ruska. It is the Raevir from which the Haeseni are mostly derived, with the House of Barbanov being descendants of the Imperial House of Carrion, the patriarchs of the Raevir people at its time. Waldenian - during the old formation the City of Siegrad, and the Duchy of Haense, in the days of Athera, the Dukedom bordered the burgeoning state of Aesterwald at the time. From Aesterwald came the Waldenians, a people reminiscent of Central and Northern Germans. These Waldenians immigrated to Haense after Aesterwald was struck by a cataclysm, incorporating themselves into many positions of influence, as well as marrying into the House of Barbanov. These acts would leave a profound effect upon the growing Siegradic people, influencing much of its culture in the forms of; military structuring and a martial culture. Hansetians or “Haeseni” - The primary culture of the Kingdom of Haense. The entirety of the Royal Family and the majority of the Kingdom’s Nobility as well as their accompanying subjects are comprised of these people - hardy folks accustomed to the harsh climates of the far north. Haesenians are an amalgamation of the cultures it has absorbed in the past, it ranges widely from its Raevir Roots to Waldenian Influence. V. HAESENI VALUES Northern Honor These are the aspects that dominate the livelihood of a typical Haeseni person; ● A Haensic man will respect legitimate authority, and remain loyal to their King and Country. ● A man of Haense will know the strength of their sword. They would not kill churlishly, and will only take up arms for a worthy cause. ● When at war, a Haensic man will be the first on the field, and the last to leave it. ● A true Highlander will never abandon a companion though they will honor sacrifice freely given. ● If an enemy were to surrender to a Haensic Man they would respect the honor of their prisoner, treating them properly, never stooping to such lows as torture. ● A Haensic man would never refuse a challenge from an equal. ● A Highlander will suffer death before dishonor. ● An honorable man of the North would protect those under their roofs as guests. Only harming a guest if they directly attempt to harm them or their kin. ● A Haensic man will defend the honor of the Church of the Canon, be god fearing, and respect all of it’s tenants. ● A man of the North shall never break an Oath, lest they be branded an Oathbreaker, and lose all of their honor. ● A Haensic man must not lie, for an honorable man has nothing to hide. ● A man of Haense will champion all that is right, and good against injustice, and the evils of the world. ● A Haensic lord who finds a criminal in their territory will give them a just trial, and punish them himself. ● A man of Haense will respect all women ● A Haensic man will never commit infidelity, staying true to the woman to whom he is wed. Tradition There are numerous customary and traditional events, foods, drinks, and ways of life that the Haeseni people value strongly. A common beverage almost always available at taverns or festivities is Carrion Black– a strong, hard liquor. Alongside this drink is Yopil, which is a mixture of berries and Carrion Black. Nevertheless, traditions and customs are the heart and soul of the Haeseni people. To look for more in-depth traditions, the following link is extremely useful for such endeavors. VI. NEW MARIAN | NAUVMARIAN What is New Marian? - Nauvmarian (New Marian in its own language) is an ancient pre-server history language that has the same relevancy as Latin in our current time. Only recently has the language been ‘revived’, now seeing usage in official Government documents and the likes. Recent Kings of Haense have begun a more in-depth restoration of the language, pushing for it to gain more influence within the playerbase of Haense. As a result, most common greetings and farewells you might hear from Haeseni players will be in Nauvmarian, words like Dravi (Goodbye) and Prevja (Hello) are the most popular. The informal greeting of “Eja” (Hey) can also be frequently seen used amongst the Haeseni. Sons and Daughters are usually seen calling their fathers, Papej, or Pader and their mothers, Mametr, or Mamej. Additionally, most Haeseni players will sport Nauvmarian names along the lines of: Aleksandra, Andrey, Branimar, Sigmar, Elizaveta https://docs.google.com/document/d/12MSwrp1ix-JVzIb3ecuuS1PAHhcWOSRHgMxnMYqPunc/edit?usp=sharing VII. CONCLUSION If you wish to learn more about the Kingdom of Haense and its in-depth culture and lore, this forum page serves as a hub that branches off into most of our documentation regarding such. Never hesitate to ask any questions when integrating yourself into Haense and the culture as well. There are plenty of people around who are willing to help, whether that be the list below of who helped create this guide or anyone around on the Server/Haense discord. The best way to contact someone is by either DMing them in game or over discord once you’ve been added to the Haense server.

  7. A HISTORY OF THE ROYAL DUMA OF THE KINGDOM OF HANSETI-RUSKA Est. 234 ES | 1681 AH Or, A STUDY INTO THE ROYAL DUMA OF HAENSE BY OTTO, ARCHBISHOP OF JORENUS & GEORG II ALIMAR, PRINCE OF HAENSE Published on 12th of Joma and Umund, 294 ES | 1741 The ROYAL DUMA of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska is the principal legislative assembly of the realm comprising of the noble peerage and elected representatives, known as aldermen. The Duma scrutinizes bills that are introduced among its members or by His Majesty’s Royal Government. The primary responsibility of the Duma is to debate and provide consensus on legislative matters, revenues, and resolutions of state. Structure of the Royal Duma The HERZEN of the ROYAL DUMA, or colloquially known as the Speaker of the Duma, is the presiding officer of the Duma. The Herzen is typically chosen from among the lords of Haense or a sitting member of the Duma and confirmed by the Crown. They are responsible for calling forth sessions during each term and facilitates in the deliberation of the Duma, and for delivering legislation to the Crown of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska to receive royal assent. Unlike the rest of their peers in the assembly, the Herzen is forbidden to adopt any formal political stance and must be ideologically neutral during their tenure in office (though exceptions have existed). As of 292, all Herzens have come from nobility or gentry and three officeholders have ascended to the Palatinate or held the title in conjunction with being Lord Palatine (II, II, and IV). The HERZENAV, or Lord Peers, are members who sit in the Royal Duma by right of their birth as vassals under the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska. The patriarch of each noble family is afforded a seat on the Royal Duma, and in addition may appoint a designated representative of their fiefdom (as well as being a Haeseni citizen) to sit in their stead. The ALDERMEN, or Elected Peers, are members of the Duma, who by virtue of election, sit to represent the commoner populace. Two are elected for a term of four years, and may elect to run for re-election without limitation. The following officials of the Royal Administration are ex officio, members of the Royal Duma: The Lord Palatine (representing one of the Crown’s two seats) The High Steward (representing one of the Crown’s two seats) The Lord Maer The 285 (1732) COMMITTEE is the primary rules committee that governs the processes and structures of the Royal Duma. It is chaired by the Herzen and comprised of appointed members of the by the Herzen to govern the legislative procedures (or standing rules) of the chambers. The BLACK BULAVA is the ceremonial mace of the Royal Duma, which is required to be present in all sittings of the Duma. The bulava represents the Duma as a constituent branch under the legitimacy of the Crown and is carried by the Lord Handler of the Bulava during the opening sessions of the Duma term. Sittings of the Duma in the absence of the bulava are considered legally unconstitutional. The Benches of the Duma The Royal Duma is divided into three main factions, or benches, in which the peers congregate in. These are as followed, CENTRALISM, or Centralist-Biharism, is a centrist philosophy which supports greater powers of the royal state over that of the feudal estates, though in respect to Biharist rights and freedoms. Typically, a Centralist supports the royal army over that of noble levies, and greater focus on central institutions. FEUDALISM, or Feudalist-Biharism, is a centrist philosophy which supports greater rights of the estates over that of the central government, though in respect to Biharist views of authority and national loyalty. Typically, a Feudalist supports noble levies over the royal army, and a greater focus on feudal institutions. CROSSBENCHERS, or independents, are members who do not affiliate with either side typically vary in their positions in the Duma debates. They espoused elements of various political ideologies. BIHARISM is a center-right nationalist philosophy founded and formulated by Saint Henry of Bihar, which has become the leading national philosophy in terms of stewardship and government policy. Biharist, or Haeseni, thought can roughly be boiled down to the following tenets: Agrarianism, or a focus on the maintenance of the farm-based agriculture and peasant economy of the northern rural country. Sponsorship of agricultural development through veteran pensions or noble estates is typically the most pronounced form of this. Loyalty, or the utmost loyalty to the Crown of Haense and the ancient royal family of the Barbanovs. For centuries have the Barbanovs ruled Haense, and to the Biharist, their rule falls hand-in-hand with the well-being of the nation. This also includes loyalty to the state and the fellow citizenry, maintaining a concept of Haeseni honor. Pan-Highlanderism, or Haesenification, which is the concept of uniting all Highlanders, the Sons and Daughters of Joren, under one flag and one state. This includes both Raev, Hansetian, and other highlander peoples. Scholarism, or the support of literacy and scholasticism amongst the people. This includes support for schools and historical recording, and the patronage of such organizations such as the Church of the Canon and independent artists and writers. Expansionism, or a focus on enlarging the borders and influence of the Haeseni state and people. This includes both directly and indirectly, as well as cultural expansionism through use of assimilation. Traditionalism, or a focus on maintaining the specific customs and traditions of the Highlander people, as well as the noble and monarchical hierarchy of Haense. A Biharist does not deny meritocracy and in fact most endorse it, however the ancient customs and traditions of the nobility and religion are typically left untouched and unmolested. Haeseni Liberty, or the concept of the Haeseni citizen as protected under the government. Biharism holds the Jeremic Rights as its standard, which are as follows, “To each freeman is his own life, to take it is to be a thief, To each freeman his own time, to take it is to be a slaver, To each freeman his own sword, to take it is to blind him, To each freeman his own wife, to take it is to injure him, And to each freeman his own farm, to take is to make him no man.” Members of the Duma (as of 292): Alimar Seat: Kazimar Alimar, Prince of Muldav Barclay Seat: Wilheim Barclay, Baron of Freising Baruch Seat: Sigmar Baruch, Count of Ayr Gant Seat: Joren Gant, Baron of Gant Jorenus (Archbishop) Seat: Otto Barrow, Archbishop of Jorenus Kortrevich Seat: Markus Kortrevich, Baron of Koravia Ludovar Seat: Aleksandr Ludovar, Duke of Kvasz Ruthern Seat: Konstantin II Ruthern, Count of Metterden Stafyr Seat: Erich Stafyr, Count of Nenzing Vanir Seat: Henrik Vanir, Baron of Vasiland Vyronov Seat: Jan II Vyronov, Duke of Carnatia Senior Alderman: Marcella Barclay Junior Alderman: Princess Adryana of Reza --- History of the Royal Duma The Royal Duma traces its origins to the traditional dumas of the Raevir and Raev-influenced cultures, carried over by the nascent Barbanov dynasty as heritage of their Carrion roots. Historically, a duma was an assembly of citizens, or more specifically, the ancient Raev peasantry known as streltzy, who would congregate in order to pass common law, pass judgement on peers in cases of trial, and represent their family’s interests to the village. Over time, this evolved alongside the Raevir’s growing nobility, soon to be dominated by aristocratic landowners and powerful gentry. By the time of Karl Barbanov’s ascent as the first ‘Duke of Haense’, the duma had already taken a modern approach of an assembly of knights, and in the early history of Haense it came to be considered a body of knights and veteran soldiery, or in some cases, a war council. Come the coronation of Petyr I in Ottostadt, this body of commanders would have amassed mass lands, becoming powerful landowners in their own rights, and with their military commands they would establish themselves as Haense’s first elder nobility (this would include families such as the Kovachevs, Vanirs, and Rutherns), represented to the crown through the duma. However, until 260, the duma would lack any permanent legal body, and instead be an informal calling of the nobility and important peers when the state required it. Notable dumas held before the official adoption of the Bihar-Ludovar Articles include: The Winter Duma, or the Duma of 139 (1586) - Held by the Lords of Haense (led by Sergey I Kovachev, Duke of Carnatia); deposed King Andrik II following the Deep Cold Uprising against the Holy Orenian Empire. Duma of 145 (1592) - Held by Palatine Charles-Siguine, Count of Bihar; proclaimed crown-enforced peace in the estates of the Kovachev and Brawm families. Duma of 154 (1601) - Held by King Marus I; formally declared war on the coalition forces of Tobias Staunton and the Kingdom of Courland, beginning the First Northern War. Duma of 163 (1610) - Held by the Lords of Haense; election for the monarchy of Haense following the Greyspine Rebellion, with Stephen Barbanov winning in a landslide vote. Duma of 219 (1666) - Held by then Palatine Franz Bihar; election for the monarchy of Haense following the Greyspine Rebellion following the death of King Karl II, with Franz Bihar winning following no-contest. The Peasant’s Duma (1666) - Held by Palatine Karolus van Rothswald; formally declared Karolus as Palatine and state under the rule of mixed commoner-gentry council, also denied entry of King Sigmar I into Markev though confirmed his election as king. Duma of 223 (1670) - Held by King Sigmar I; formally stripped the office of palatine from Karolus van Rothswald and had him beheaded, giving confirmation to the rule of King Sigmar after his march into Markev; signified Barbanov-Bihar as new royal line. The Bihar-Ludovar Articles and Commission of 234 The Royal Commission on Oversight and Reform, called by King Sigmar I in 234 (1680) set out the inquiry on establishing a branch of government to formalize the assembly of the lord peers. The commission was co-chaired by Auditor Otto Ludovar and Lord Palatine Robert Bihar. Drawing from the precedent of the kings to summon the lords for audience and oaths of fealty, the commission established a formalized body that derived legitimacy from the Crown to carry out the legislative duties of the realm as a collective institution with the vassals. The Royal Duma Charter was published and given royal assent by the following year. By 260 ES, King Marius II codified the institution of the Royal Duma with the re-promulgation of the Royal Duma Charters and the subsequent appointment of Lord Edward Morris to chair the first session as Herzen. --- I HERZEN EDWARD MORISZ Edward Morris | Eduardus Morris 260 ES - 263 ES | 1707 AH -1710 AH Monarch(s): Marus II Lord Edward Morisz (Common: Edward Morris) was an Adrian statesman who was appointed as Herzen of the Duma. His speakership was dominated by the tensions that rose between the Golden City of Ves and the Imperial estates. He saw the passage of the Royal Scholarship Act of 1710 that promoted the arts and education for Haeseni commoners. He resigned in protest after the sacking of Ves was condoned by King Marus II. --- II HERZEN PRINZ GEORG ALIMAR Prince George Alimar | Georgius Karovius Alimius 263 ES - 272 ES | 1710 AH -1719 AH Monarch(s): Marus II, Andrik III Prince Georg Alimar (Common: George Alimar) was a Haeseni statesman who rose to become Herzen upon the resignation of Lord Edward Morris. Under his speakership, the constitutional power of the Royal Duma was solidified as a central institution in the royal government. Prince Georg promulgated the Standing Rules of the Royal Duma which served as the standard procedure of the Duma that led to the creation of the 285 Committee. He saw the passage of the Rural Development and Fair Market Act, the Hallucinogens Ban, and the resolution to support the Nenzing Proclamation that sparked the War of Two Emperors. Upon the death of Lord Leopold Stafyr, Prince Georg was appointed Lord Palatine and resigned as Herzen. --- III HERZEN LERALD VYRONOV, HERZEN VAN KARNATIYA Lerald Vyronov, Duke of Carnatia | Leraldus Vironus 272 ES - 276 ES | 1719 AH -1723 AH Monarch(s): Andrik II Lord Lerald Vyronov (Common: Lerald Vyronov) was a Haeseni nobleman and the Duke of Carnatia. He served as deputy to Palatine Leopold Stafyr in the waning years of Marus II. Lord Vyronov succeeded Prince Georg Alimar as Herzen when the former was appointed Lord Palatine. Under Lord Vyronov, the power of the Herzen was enhanced. He saw the passage of the Mayoral Term Limits Act, the Medicinal Services Resolution, the Dissolution of the Office of Lord Bursar, and the Georg Stanimar Commemoration Act. Lord Lerald Vyronov is the only Herzen to have served concurrently as Lord Palatine. --- IV HERZEN SER KONRAD STAFYR Ser Conrad Stafyr | Conradus Alimanius 276 ES - 285 ES | 1723 AH - 1733 AH Monarch(s): Andrik III Ser Konrad Stafyr (Common: Conrad Stafyr) is a Haeseni knight and statesman who served as Herzen of the Duma upon the resignation of Lord Lerald Vyronov. His speakership saw the further institutionalization of the Royal Duma within the government by sponsoring the creation of the 285 Committee. His saw the passage of the Grand Medical Reform Act, the Northeastern Infrastructure Act, the Medical Expansion Act, and the Mask Ban and actively used the power of the office to maintain impartiality. Ser Konrad maintained the institutional integrity of the Duma until his controversial decision to change the quorum rules without the consent of the 285 Committee. He stepped down as Herzen upon his appointment as Lord Palatine upon the resignation of Terrence May. --- V HERZEN SIGMAR BARUCH, KOMIT VAN AYR Siguine Baruch, Count of Ayr | Siguinius Barucis 285 ES - Present | 1733 AH - Present Monarch(s): Andrik III Current Incumbent. ---

Penned by His Lordship, Karl Vyronov Education Reformation Act of 1739 13th of Msitza and Dargund, 292 ES Education is at the heart of all great nations, and Haense is no exception to this statement. Education is in a state of decline, and if no steps are taken toward its improvement then it will cease to exist. This bill will ensure that education will not only return as a priority but will be a key focus of the Kingdom. A New Stance on Education Education should not be viewed as a worrisome task that must be completed, but instead as a bountiful opportunity for a child to improve upon his/her person. It is a privilege to attend a school of learning, and it will be treated as such. Our children are the future of our great lands and as any orchard that is well-tended to, the reward upon investment is immeasurable. Instructors The men and women who commit their lives to the children are to be treated with the utmost respect. They are the farmers in this analogy that will raise the children from a sapling, drive their roots deep within the Earth of knowledge, and nurture them into prominent symbols of success. They will be rewarded for their efforts by watching the children blossom, as well as being rewarded handsomely by the state for their devotion. The Right to Education The children represent the very future of our great Kingdom, and it is our goal to ensure their success by providing them with a high-quality education that will lead them to flourish. Children below the age of fourteen are entitled to an education free of charge if they wish to pursue such a privilege. Above such an age, they will be charged a fee of one-hundred mina to attend and complete a single class of their choosing. This fee will be paid in full to the instructor of said class before the adult is allowed to participate. Proof of Education As a symbol of hard work and perseverance, a child or adult who partook in a class, or graduated all classes, will be awarded a book detailing the specifics of their success. This document may be used to prove their worth to future employers, or as a simple token to keep as a reminder of their hard work. Penned by Lord Markus Kortrevich and Adryana Barbanov Education Committee Act of 1739 13th of Msitza and Dargund, 292 ES Purpose The purpose of the Education Committee is to ensure that the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska has a stable and prosperous education system. This mission will be accomplished only by a dedication to the betterment of society and an unending drive to create a lasting impact that will educate the children for generations to come. Structure In the Education Committee, there will be a variety of officials that will need to be selected. The first position that will be needing an appointment is the Head of the Education Committee, which will be referred henceforth as the HEC for convenience.

The HEC in Depth The HEC will act as the representative of the Education Committee when addressing His Majesty, as well as when presenting bills to the Duma. The general qualifications of the HEC are being able to address the Duma, write legislation, and be committed to furthering the quality of education in the Kingdom of Haense.

Function The primary functions of the Education Committee are as follows: Decide on major changes to the education system and the procedures that accompany that system Create courses and syllabuses for these courses Hire instructors that are qualified and clearly understand the values of education Petition the Crown for funding and facilities to assist in their endeavors Place the needs and improvement of education above personal desires Preserve Haeseni culture and improve upon said culture so that it will be sustained for the entirety of its history Penned by Lord Markus Kortrevich IV JOVEO MAAN, His Royal Majesty, King Andrew III of Hanseti and Ruska, Grand Hetman of the Army, Prince of Kusoraev, Dules, Ulgaard, Lahy, Sorbesborg and Slesvik, Grand Duke of Vanderfell, Duke of Vidaus, Margrave of Rothswald, Count of Karikhov, Baranya, Kvasz, Kavat, Karovia, Kovachgrad, Torun, Turov, and Kaunas, Baron of Valwyk, Venzia, Esenstadt, Krepost and Kralta, Lord of Alban, Reza, Markev, Lord of the Westfolk, Protector of the Highlanders, etcetera His Excellency, Sigmar Baruch, Count of Ayr, Baron of Laval, Riveryn, and Voron, Lord Speaker and Herzen of the Royal Duma of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska
  9. Va Birodeo Herzenav e Edlervik, For years we have struggled, for years we have fought, and for years we have bled for the simplest right known to mankind: existence. The heathen scum of Norlandic descent see fit to question this once more as they only know one thing and that is blood. Blood like in the Siege of Nordengrad, blood like in the Siege of Vjorhelm, all good Canonist men share one belief, and that is the eagerness to spill Norlandic blood. We are not overconfident. Make no mistake, we stand once more at the start of a coalition war on this land granted by GOD that we live in. It will be a tough war, a hard war, a long war. But we have GOD on our side. Those men who claim to be Canonist all but turn their backs on the Church of Canon and the anointed Emperor Peter III, GOD bless his name, will have to look to the saints for forgiveness once they are met with the sword as they shall find little with the living. The Dual Kingdom of Hanseti and Ruska will forever and always be a strong defender of the Canonist faith, it will forever be a loyal vassal to the Imperial Crown of Emperor Peter, and will always seek to protect humanity against Norlanders, elves, heathens and blasphemers. Thusly we reaffirm our oaths to the Holy Orenian Empire. So is our duty to this land. God Save Haense! God Save the Empire!

  11. THE DUAL MONARCHY OF THE KINGDOMS OF HANSETI AND RUSKA ZWEINKONGZEM EDAELEO AG KUSORAEV In the northern reaches of the world, the Highlander realm of the KINGDOM OF HANSETI-RUSKA, known colloquially as the KINGDOM OF HAENSE, is situated between the Imperial Crownlands and the Kingdom of Kaedrin. Ruled by the scions of the ancient House of Carrion, direct line of the Prophet Sigismund, the Kingdom of Haense is claimed, and is in practice, the realm of all Highlanders, ruling a plethora of the northern lands and tribes. Its two largest minorities, the Raevir and the Hansetians, create Haense’s unique names- the unification of the two rival peoples into a singular realm. The Kingdom of Haense is an absolute monarchy, ruled by a singular monarch and a council of nobles, acting as advisors and chief ministers. Sparsely populated in the wide reaches of the hinterlands, the main bastions of civilization rest in the fortresses of the principal houses which dot the landscape. The capital of the kingdom is the Royal City of Reza, which lies situated in the southern reaches of the realm just north of the river Leuven. The kingdom itself, compared to its southern neighbors, is considered a traditional agrarian society, a large majority of its population working as farmers and lumberjacks, preferring the open fields to dense urban centers. Its ruling family is the House of Barbanov, claiming direct descent from the Prophet Sigismund through his bastard Tuvya Rosebud (known most commonly as Emperor Tobias), which gained the throne by grant from Emperor John III. Haense remains a staunch Canonist Realm, as well as contributing numerous of its people as Pontiffs, Saints and other clerical positions to the Church throughout history. I. ROYAL GOVERNMENT II. PEERAGE OF NOBILITY III. SURVEY OF THE REALM IV. LINEAGE OF KINGS ROYAL GOVERNMENT The Royal Government of the Kingdom of Haense is composed of a singular monarch, called the King, which rules as the autocratic head of the realm. The King is advised by the Closed Council, nicknamed the Aulic Council, and consists of the realm’s most chief ministers. The body of nobles, from barons to the princes, compose the main selection for the majority of positions in both the bureaucracy and the army. They are also specially represented by a diet called the Royal Duma. The chief advisory board, the Aulic Council, is composed of numerous established positions. The head of the council is the Palatine of the Realm, which acts as the primary chancellor and the right hand of the King effectively the most powerful man of the kingdom besides the King Himself. Beneath the Palatine sits the Lord Justiciar who handles all judiciary matters of the realm, the Lord Marshal whose sole purpose is to maintain the nation’s military and borders, the Lord Kastellan which is appointed to assist and oversee that of the crown’s vassals, the High Steward who handles all direct affairs regarding taxation and maintenance of the crownland estates and finally the Royal Treasurer, who serves as the individual who holds the sole responsibility of the crown’s finances and trade. In the aulic council sits also the councillor paramount who chairs the Duma in the King’s name and any royal exchequer appointed by His Majesty to oversee his councillors. Under the jurisdiction of the Aulic Council serves a another set of honorary advisors and councillors to handle smaller and more direct matters. Generally serving directly under the observation of the Aulic council or Palatine. These men and women can at the will of the King or Lord Palatine be requested to sit on aulic council meetings during special sittings. Succession of the kingdom is maintained by the Royal Office of the Palatine, which also determines marriages, legality of children and nearly all inheritance disputes. Traditionally, the son of the current King would be next in line to the throne. Should the firstborn bear no sons, then the secondborn's sons shall inherit. If there are no males left in the dynasty, then the sons of females would inherit. However, females may not inherit the crown. The succession of the Royal Throne is constricted to the House of Barbanov from the figure King Peter I, who derives his line from Emperor Alexander I, son of Emperor Tobias I, and therefore the direct line of the Prophet Sigismund. In addition to the Aulic Council and the honorary advisors, the kingdom has the Royal Duma: an elective body composed of the various peers of the realm, both nobility and burghers, secondary to the Aulic Council itself. The Duma exists to advise the monarch and vote on legislative matters. Only the monarch may assemble the Duma, though he himself may not vote.

With the centralization of land to the state, the majority of the nobility within the realm hold little land when compared to their established titles- very few still maintain their subscribed estates. THE PRINCELY NOBILITY - THE PRINCES The Princes, generally reserved for those of royal blood such as that of Barbanov or other Carrion dynasties are the highest form of nobility within the Kingdom. There is currently only one living Princely house and that is the House of Alimar who are closely related to the current reigning dynasty, Barbanov-Bihar.

In front of it lies the independent Principality of Rubern, led by another Barbanov scion. Vladrick the Black. To northwest of Reza lies the County of Nenzing, nestled deep within the Almannir highlands and the home to House Stafyr. Between the tall peaks of the highlands lies luscious and grand fields. The Nenzing mountains watch upon the highlands northern border. To the northeast sits the County of Ayr, perched alongside the coast. Home to the Baruchs and the main port for trading with the other coastal nations of Arcas. Along the eastern border of the Kingdom sits also the Duchy of Carnatia held by the recently elevated Greater House of Vyronov. To the direct west of the city lies the Barony of Freising, a hold designed to protect Haense from foreign incursions around the lake Jan. Landed there after the War of the Two Emperors when the Renatian army marched through Haelunor into the Haeseni lowlands to avoid the war torn and well defended south around the river Leuven.
