  1. WANTED: VLADISLAV CARRION For several years since the establishment of this Principality of Savoy, the soldiers of our Esheveurd brigade have dutifully pledged themselves to the cleansing of this holy city: of the heathen and heretic. It saddens us to see that today, yet another victim has fallen to their machinations. According to testimony of our witnesses, one Vladislav Carrion, an Imperial noble tied to the hereditary Orenian peerage of Dobrov and Woldzmir, committed two great sins within our holy city. An ill omen has befallen this cradle of man. His first sin was murder, upon his own daughter: the late Duchess of Cathalon. The second, according to our witnesses, was his nefarious acts of dark nature. On this, the 184nd Saint’s year, we issue a proclamation of wantedness for one such agent of devilry within this blessed city; desired dead or delivered to the ESHEVEURD BRIGADE alive for the crimes of murder, witchcraft, and devilry. We urge our denizens to be weary within Imperial lands, as this Vladislav Carrion, the murderer of the Duchess of Cathalon, was known to reside within its Northern realms. Furthermore, we advise our denizens to be careful as this being is known to prowl the corners of San Luciano at night, awaiting its next prey. Citizens, sellswords, and hunters of monsters are encouraged to redouble their prayers for the safety and sanctity of Savoy that we might have GOD's blessing in the beast's apprehension, and to report any suspicious behavior to the ESHEVEURD BRIGADE, which is offering a bounty of one hundred mina to any folk hero who would bring the beast’s body or head to the Esheveurd Bastille that it might be burned and the ground beneath the pyre consecrated. Praise GOD. Signed, First Magistrate Valentino Gradic Second Magistrate Anne Eleanore Morovar
  2. FIRST ANNUAL SAN LUCIANO ELECTION & LOTTERY Issued the year of our GOD 1842 15th of Horen’s Calling Hear ye, hear ye, let it be known that the first election of the City Assembly shall hereby open. For the plebians must be hearkened, and representation must be strengthened sustainably, as it stands as a link of the chain that holds our holy Principality. A role of bureaucracy, and that of responsibility. The following will elucidate our parameters of this selection, administered by His Excellency, First Magistrate Valentino Gradic, as GOD wills it. The Lottery: This election shall launch in 3 Saint’s Days, open to all Savoyard citizenry of San Luciano. Six seats are available, and the City Assembly shall be determined by our Vessian Lottery. Anyone may buy an unfettered quantity of tickets, granted that they are eligible; each ticket is twenty minas each. This will occur within the square of our city, results being announced there as well. Following this indeterminate period, the Magistrate shall draw six fortunate names from a bag; those present, favored individuals shall make up the Assembly whereby. The Election: As a single man mustn't muster the strength to carry the conduct of the current elections and those to come, an additional role shall be elected thus: the Magistrate. Additionally, that of an administrator orchestrating the Assembly: the Lord Provost, also formerly titled the Lord Mayor. These two positions both open their candidacies as of now, but requirements over the Magistrate office are more strict. To those who seek to run as the Second Magistrate, they must join an interview with His Excellency Valentino Gradic to determine they are adequate for this esteemed office. Those with interest should contact him as soon as possible to be prioritized.

  5. CHARTER FOR THE SERENE CITY OF SAN LUCIANO c. 14th of the Snow’s Maiden, 1840 Lo and behold for San Luciano is glorious! The Princely City of San Luciano, the Jewel of the Southern Coast, was founded and settled in the Year of our Lord 1836, predominantly by the former inhabitants of Luciensburg, Sava, and Sutica. Built on the site of the former Uialbenite Sutican capital, a desolate wasteland of magi and degeneracy turned into a sparse Canonist township through the Alstreim Reclamation, the City fulfilled the vision of the late Prince Ottomar of a bustling, prosperous Canonist seat of power in the South. This was much due to the proprietorship of the Duke of Corazon, Olivier Renault de Savoie, whose hardy Savoyards had settled on the coasts of Merryweather Bay, by what is now rightly called the Renaultic Sea. In the halls of the Palazzo Aggrade, the center of the Savoyard restoration, the Duke declared the beginning of a Savoyard Century - a new era of greatness. With the backing of Sutica's Canonist lineages of Waldenians and Hyspians, this manifested in the glorious proclamation of the Principality of Savoy. In honor of his ancestor, St. Lucien of Ulmsbottom, The Prince thus named the city San Luciano - reflecting its commitment to both traditional values and a vision of a bright, storied future. The City of San Luciano is a domain, which is under the rule of the Prince of Savoy, although given bureaucratic autonomy and self-governance by the Principality. It abides by the laws and statutes laid forth by the Prince and His Grand Assembly. The City of San Luciano is granted privileges under the Gradic Rights which outline their autonomy and freedom from serfdom. The Gradic Rights were given to the Imperial City of Felsen during the reign of John II, Holy Orenian Emperor which allowed for greater autonomy to the city through a series of municipal rights. These rights came from a series of laws which gave privileges to the burghers, exemption from serfdom, and the ability for self-governance and self-defense. The Gradic Rights, c.1557 Hitherto the populace of this town shall be referred to as any legal landholder within municipal authority. Hitherto does the populace of this town have the right to waive feudal privilege and govern itself. Hence the town has the right to choose a leader from amongst its own.

  6. PETITION FOR CIVIL AFFAIRS RECOUNT To: His Excellency, Victor Halcourt, Secretary of State for Civil Affairs The Commonwealth Club municipal campaign hereby files a petition for a nonpartisan Civil Affairs recount and audit of the City Assembly and Mayoral elections held this year to confirm the veracity and legitimacy of the results released by the Office of the City Magistrate. We also request access to the full results for both elections given the fact that the Josephite Party has full unrestricted access to any and all electoral records. Campaign Chair, Valentino Gradic
  7. The elderly and nearly senile Judge Joachim Haas has decided to take this case.
  8. Valentino Gradic raises an imaginary glass to the Commonwealth Club's own Cyprian de la Baltas! "Chin chin!" He'd say upon hearing the town crier. And chin chin indeed, for Valentino joyfully skipped back to his house to drink vast quantities of Auvergnac with his cousin.
  9. Full Name of the Alderman Candidate: Valentino Gradic Age of the Alderman Candidate: 31 Street Address of the Alderman Candidate: Selm St 4C
  10. “PROMISES MADE, PROMISES KEPT.” Jep nods at the slogan.
  11. Justice Joachim B. Haas hereby takes this case.
  12. JOSEPHITES, ICONOCLASTS OF OUR SUCCESS His Imperial Majesty had benevolently reformed the Imperial Diet to improve the democracy of our citizens. All of Oren rejoiced, but unfortunately not for the same reasons. The common man and intellectual alike celebrated the new avenue for civil participation and stable reform. The Josephite however, smirked at a new opportunity to chisel at the pillars holding our Empire up. The chubby Josephite, finishing his last whiskey, looks out of his window onto a prospering Helena: and he despises it. Not because he is anti-Imperial or so, but because the success of our ancien regime makes him feel inadequate and effeminate. Whenever the Church unites man better than they unite their demesne, they scream and shout at the tyranny of God! When society rejects his debauchery, suddenly society is at fault. The weak minded and decadent always point fingers: because looking in the proverbial mirror is too much of a frightening prospect for him. This sickening mentality makes them the iconoclasts of our success: as they try to tear down the pillar that is faith, that is family and that is nobility. Like Barbarians they walk into our beloved Empire and smash everything that makes it beautiful and harmonious. If they can’t be successful, nobody can. The accomplices of the greatest heist known to man: the theft of our tradition. But what does their immaturity bring us to? What happens if their dilution of God’s mandates and values become entrenched in our institutions and faith? Any smart historian can resolve that question: we gain a rebirth of the terrorist reign of Emperor Antonius. A product of incest and a promulgator of apostasy, His Former Imperial Majesty would’ve been an excellent candidate for the Josephite list. This philosophy is no longer presented as a tyrannical crown unchecked by morality, but by refined contemporaries like us, but who babble and fantasize over the carcass of tradition day by day. They do not live the reality of most of mankind: who seeks to protect their family, their demesne, their nation and their people. The Josephites see the world as a quaint board of chess: but when they don’t like the rules mankind has set for centuries, they change them. If they still are playing chess with us or something entirely ridiculous is still unknown. But what we do know is that their moves can directly affect most of mankind. We stand behind the systems of class, an unified faith and Crown because we have seen its success elevate humanity to previously unknown heights. This Empire is great because men compete to join the upper echelon, because the Church is strong and the Imperial democracy representative. A man of Haense has the same God and Emperor as a man of Kaedrin: making both of them brothers, as God wills it. Unlike the Josephites, we have no appetite to change the rules of the game. We ask you to fight them through the means given to us by God and his defender, the Emperor. Vote for a party that protects your family, your livelihoods and your society. A vote for the Everardines is a vote against Iblees. - The Everardines
  13. The Western Circuit accepts this case. Prosecution and defendant have tomorrow Saint’s day to submit all corresponding evidence to the Office of Justice Joachim B. Haas.
  14. REQUEST TO THE SUPREME COURT FOR JUDICIAL REVIEW, 1749 JOACHIM BOUSSY HAAS DESIRES TO SEE THE LEGAL CONTEXT OF THE FOLLOWING REVIEWED CITY OF HELENA Office of the City Clerk of Helena, Gradic Rights, The Livery Board of Helena ON THE BASIS OF THE FOLLOWING PRINCIPLE(S), DOCTRINE(S), EDICT(S) OR ARTICLES OF LAW: HELENA MUNICIPAL REFORMATION EDICT, 1743 (https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/187298-helena-municipal-reformation-edict-1743/) RIGHTS OF THE CITIZENS OF HELENA, 1737 (https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/186325-rights-of-the-citizens-of-helena-1737/) The Municipal Reformation Edict of 1743 details that the now defunct Office of Internal Affairs appoints the City Clerk of Helena. The requester believes that considering the Office of Internal Affairs was split into the Office of the Treasury and the Office of the Interior, the City Clerk should rightfully be jointly appointed by both offices and beholden to the City and Lord Mayor as an employee alone to curb excesses of unilateral taxation. The Gradic Rights had also enumerated that the populace of Helena shall dictate the taxation of the city as beholden to the Crown’s demands for tithes and taxation. The requester believes it necessary that the Livery Board of Helena should be the regulatory body for all laws concerning taxation except for those explicitly outlined by the Municipal Reformation Edict pertaining to the City Clerk’s office, including but not limited to property appraisal. YOURS HUMBLY, Vice-Chancellor Joachim B. Haas 12 Anpalais Place, City of Helena
  15. The Vice-Chancellor Joachim would sweep his loose silk garments over his shoulder as he stands up from his seat upon the dias at the Senate Hall. ”With quorum established and the vote called, all present have cast their votes. For the third time under my Vice-Chancellery I must cast yet another tie-breaking vote. In full confidence in the abilities, intelligence and jurisprudence of Duke John of Sunholdt, I find his presence both enjoyable and learned in nature, an upstanding civil servant of this Empire only deserving of such a position of great judiciary import. I believe he is the man capable of leading the Supreme Court into the 18th Century with his enlightened thoughts on judicial activism. On this point I vote ‘Aye.’ To this I call the clerk to report the tally.”
