  1. Evar'tir regards the news of Gladewynn with a raised brow overseas, the excruciatingly exhausted carrier falcon having promptly passed out as it reached the vessel. "Peculiar, truly." He hummed, and started to pen a letter of his own.

    An aging knight and Draughtsman of Renatus raises a brow at the news, adjusting his stained scarf idly. "Interesting developments. I suppose."
  3. ♫♪♪♫ The military bastion of Talareh’sae, south of Caras Eldar, now New Endmoor after the Atlasian Exodus to Arcas. When tensions rise in the planes of the descendants, one thing is for certain: war. Whether it be nationalism, pride, coin, or personal motive, there is always something which will drive your blade, and loose your arrow in combat. When war erupted in the Dominion of Malin, the bronze-clad Virarim were the first to take up against the Orcish scourge. When distrust rippled through the Dominion, it was Kairn who took up the mantle of High Prince, and later King of Elves to lead the Atlasian Mali’ame into a golden era of militant strength. It was Kairn’s council upon which the Dominion was at the height of it’s span across Atlas. When Kairn lead, victory was not unheard of. The song of triumph was oft heard in the streets of Caras Eldar, and the victories of the Virarim numerous. Now, upon the Arcasian continent, Elvendom is scattered. From the Sanctuary of Irrinor, to the mountaintop citadels of Tahu’lareh and Berr’lin, to the Elves and Dwarves within the enclosed halls of Aegrothond, to the ebony skinned of Vira’ker; Elvendom remains divided. Long gone are the days of the unity which the Dominion had prospered, and long gone are the days of prominent Elven rulers. Now, in place sit councils of sloth; with intents which rarely supersede personal motives. The HMS Retribution of the Ironwood Armada, circa 1681 With the Diarchy of Irrinor's establishment, the publishing of the Laws and Mandates, and the revitalization the Sirame Order; the 'ker had completed his work. For now, at least. There would always be reason to brandish steel or to enforce the law, but that would have to wait. However, time does not wait. Time is a constant, and it will outlast everyone, even those who claim immortality. With these thoughts in mind, Evar'tir brought himself to wake on a dull morning. After his near daily routine of contemplating life for a while, he moved to the door of his room. Though he donned no platemail; instead, he took on his naval coat of emerald tint. A rather crisp, refreshing, though uneventful morning sounded of faint birdsong, alongside the occasional gust of wind. Worn leather boots crunched leaves underfoot as he buried his hands into the pockets of the overcoat. Many had yet to rise, and the sun had just peeked over the canopy ridge east of the settlement. Rays breaching past the branches and bridgework intruded into the windows of the lesser fortunate, as Evar'tir returned to his room. He had prepared for a considerable amount of time to set for the seas for the isle which Kairn had been banished by the sky-daemon redtag intrusionists, decades after his mortal vessel was controlled by the spirit of Antonius Horen. However Kairn was back now. Pacified, but he was back. Regardless, now was as good of a time as any to seek out the foreign lands. So reasonably, Evar'tir scrawled a brief note and left it on his desk. With that, he departed from the chartered lands to Sutica, where he had anchored the warship which he had utilized to cross from Atlas to Arcas during the exodus. With a company of volunteers, hired crew members, and a potted Tiger Lily; the anchor was raised during the midday sun. Headed eastbound, the Ithelanen-captained ship departed Arcasian waters.

Should only be issued if the offence was moderate. Confiscation of Goods or Other Property Used in such cases where persons have come into possession of goods in an unlawful way, or in such cases where a person has been evicted from their housing within Irrinor Such confiscated property henceforth becomes the property of the government of Irrinor until such a time that the guilty wishes to appeal to the council for the return of the confiscated property.

Magical offences and vandalism are by default a mina fine 300 minas. Fines may also be for material items in ways of confiscation. Eviction An eviction is classified as removal of a person or family from such person’s housing. This includes a removal of keys from such citizens. This means the person shall no longer own their home or be a resident, in addition to having their keys being revoked from the citizen doors. Public service Public service is not a recommended punishment, usually due to the uncooperative nature from both the carer and the participant. Setting tasks such as planting flowers, transcribing books, and other petty works of manual labour should be considered. Follow up on checking the criminal’s progress should be done regularly.

Criminals are defined as those individuals who have not been relieved of their suspected guilt after a hearing before the council and, for all intents and purposes, are conclusively guilty of their accused crime.

Violent offences are defined by the presence of one or more sets of suspects and victims, of which the victim has suffered some degree of bodily harm able to be proven before council. The following list is not yet fully comprehensive of all potential violent crimes, but covers the most prominent and seeks to offer guidance for law enforcement and potential punishments. Assault: is a violent act, physical or magical, wherein one criminal inflicts harm upon a victim. In the case of assault, the victim is given full rights to attempt to subdue the criminal with no legal recourse against them guaranteed by the state. If the assault is to occur against a citizen or non-citizen of the Principality by a citizen, the offending individual is to be stripped of their rights and incarcerated. If there is clear proof of assault witnessed by law enforcement, a trial by council is not required, and the arresting officer may choose any (combination) of the following punishments: (i). Lashings, not to exceed thirty strokes in a public setting. (ii). A private beating of the criminal with bodily assault not to exceed damage inflicted upon the criminal’s victim. (iii). Fine of no less than 500 minas. (iv). Capital punishment, if the victim was brought to the point of near death. If the assault is to occur against a citizen or non-citizen of the Principality by a non-citizen, the suspect is to be immediately incarcerated and their nation of origin contacted by the swiftest means available by law enforcement (if and only if the nation in question and the Principality are on ‘friendly’ and non hostile grounds). The suspect is then to be extradited to the nation in question for punishment. In the case that the suspect’s nation of origin is not friendly with the Principality, a trial is to be held by council regardless of the blatancy of assault committed, and only then might the criminal be subjected to any combination of the punishments described in 1.2§1. Murder: is a violent act defined by an individual (not sanctioned by Principality officials) taking the life of another in an act of malice or ill intent. Murder is defined not by the fact that the victim stays dead, but rather by the act of depriving them of life for any period of time. If murder is to be committed against a citizen or non-citizen of the Principality by a citizen, the offending individual is to be stripped of their rights and incarcerated. All cases of murder are to be granted trial by council, and if the suspect in question is confirmed in their guilt, the following punishments are to be executed in order. (i). A brand is to be set upon the forehead of the criminal and healed (clerically or otherwise) as to mark the offender permanently for their crimes. (ii). Once healed from the first punishment, the dominant arm of the criminal is to be removed and the resultant wound again healed criminal is to be removed and the resultant wound again healed shut to ensure the mark remains permanent. (iii). The criminal is to be exiled from the lands of the Principality, and missives are to be sent to allied nations to communicate this exile. If murder is to be committed against a citizen or non-citizen of the Principality by a citizen, the offending individual is to be immediately executed by responding officials upon capture after information has been extracted regarding the criminal’s nation of origin, name, and motives. Section 1.3 On Non-Violent Offences. Non-violent offences are described as those actions against an individual or the Principality itself taken with the intent to cause harm. The following list is non-comprehensive, and only covers the most common of non-violent crimes recognized by the Principality. Disorderly Conduct: is the action of one or more criminals which poses a non-physical threat to the victims, or the property of victims. While disorderly conduct itself is a blanket term, examples include: loitering, excessive noise, conflict-instigation, and so on. Viewed as a more minor crime by the Principality, the following punishments are to be dealt to offenders engaging in disorderly conduct - with a trial by council only required at the time of the fourth offence. If disorderly conduct is engaged in by a citizen of the Principality, as determined by law enforcement, the following punishments are to be carried out, the severity of which increases for each offence, and each being recorded on a per individual basis by law enforcement: (i) Verbal warning. (ii) Verbal warning II (iii) Fine of no less than 100 minas. (iv) Trial by council with the potential of exile for a term of two elven months. If guilt is certified, then any further offences after exile will be punished starting at step (iii). Slander: is the action of one or more criminals knowingly issuing falsehoods against one or more victims with the intent to demean, undermine, frame, or otherwise damage the reputation of those targeted. If slander is committed by a citizen of the Principality against another citizen, or allied entity of the Principality, one or more of the following punishments may be carried out after trial by council. (i) A fine may be issued against the criminal of an amount no less than 200 minas. Property may be confiscated if the individual is unable to pay. (ii) The criminal may be incarcerated for a period of no greater than one elven day. (iii) The tongue of the criminal may be cut out or mutilated with oversight of a healer to ensure the procedure is carried out correctly, and without undue suffering on the behalf of the criminal. If slander is committed by a non-citizen of the Principality against a citizen, or allied entity of the Principality, one or more of the following punishments may be carried out by law enforcement provided an eye-witness or reputable report of the incident. (i) A fine may be issued against the criminal of an amount no less than 200 minas. Personal possessions may be confiscated if the individual is unable to immediately pay. (ii) The criminal may be exiled from the Principality for a period of no less than one elven week. (iii) The tongue of the criminal may be cut out or mutilated with or without the oversight of a healer If slander is committed by any criminal against any member of the Principality’s council, one or more of the following punishments may be carried out by law enforcement (in addition to any punishments listed in 1.3§c2) after trial by council wherein the victim slandered is not present. If more than half of the council was subject to slander, the previous caveat is lifted (i) Public lashings, beatings, or executions depending upon the severity of slander issued. (ii) Indefinite exile from the Principality with no chance of appeal. Theft: is defined as the taking of a victim’s property without their expressed permission or permission from the council in the case of repossession. Such criminals acting as mediators between thief and potential buyers of stolen goods will be considered to have stolen the objects themselves unless adequate evidence to the contrary can be shown. If theft is committed by a citizen of the Principality again a citizen or non-citizen as determined by law enforcement, any stolen goods are to be immediately confiscated and the individual incarcerated until such a time they may face trial by council. If theft is committed and the act is only later revealed, the individual will be immediately given trial by council, after which one or more of the following punishments will be issued in addition to the requirement that the stolen items (or their value in mina) are returned to the victim. (i) Branding of the hands to mark the thief (ii) Removal from positions of influence within the Principality (iii) Incarceration for no longer than one elven week If theft is committed by a non-citizen of the Principality against a citizen or non-citizen as determined by law enforcement, any stolen goods to be immediately confiscated and the criminal in question to be exiled from Principality lands for a time no less than one elven week. If the individual returns before the end of their exile, or if they offend a second time, they are liable to being punished as a citizen, defined in 1.3§d1. If theft is committed by a non-citizen of the Principality against a citizen or non-citizen as determined by law enforcement, any stolen goods to be immediately confiscated and the criminal in question to be exiled from Principality lands for a time no less than one elven week. If the individual returns before the end of their exile, or if they offend a second time, they are liable to being punished as a citizen, defined in 1.3§d1. Practice of Dark Arts: is the action of a criminal wherein the individual in question has taken it upon themselves to actively practice magics hitherto considered ‘dark’ by the religious aspects and Archmagos of the Principality. Should any individual be found actively practicing dark arts within the Principality they are subject to exile for a period not less than one elven month from the date of their discovery, with the suggested duration being indefinite if the criminal seems unlikely to change their ways. Unauthorized Practice of Arcane, Divine, or Other Metaphysical Arts: is a class of actions wherein a criminal practices any category of magic outside areas designated ‘open’ zones without an appropriate licence, in the act of self defense, or authorization from the acting Archmagos of the Principality’s council. Should any individual, regardless of citizenship status, be found in violation of this ordinance by law enforcement, the following punishments may be issued after an initial verbal warning. (i). Fine, of no less than 200 minas. (ii). Fine, of no less than 300 minas. (iii). Incarceration for no less than one elven day and a 300 mina fine. (iv). Scaling incarceration by increments of two elven days, and fines scaling by increments of 50 minas for each additional offence. Section 1.4 On High Crimes and Council Conduct. High crimes by definition are those specific crimes committed by an official. Officials are capable of committing lower crimes as defined in sections 1.2 - 1.3, however citizens and non-citizens are incapable of committing any of the following crimes, save 1.4§b. High crimes and their associated punishments are as follows: Bribery: is the transaction of monetary, physical, or metaphysical goods between two individuals, one of which being a Principality official, and the other being another Principality official, citizen or non-citizen. For the criminal bribing an official, successfully or otherwise, the following punishments may be levied against an individual. (i). A fine of 100 minas in addition to the offered bribe. (ii). Public service by task of manual labor. (iii). Removal from any publicly held Principality position. (iv). Capital punishment in severe cases For the official, if there is proof they accepted the criminally offered bribe, then the removal from their publicly held office is effective immediately, and the council may issue any of the following punishments in addition. (i). A fine of 100 minas in addition to the accepted bribe. (ii). Public service by task of manual labor. (iii). Incarceration for no less than one elven week. (iv). A ban from holding public office for no less than an elven month. (v). Capital punishment in severe cases. Treason: is the action of betrayal of the Principality or any subservient entities to otherwise hostile, or foreign powers not sanctioned for information exchange by the council. Due to the fact that only officials are capable of committing treason, once the guilt of the criminal has been proven, their position is to be stripped from them and that criminal banned from serving in an official position indefinitely. Dependent upon the severity of treason, and the impact it had upon the Principality, the following punishments may also be issued. (i). Incarceration for a time not to exceed one elven month. (ii). Lashings or public beatings with no set count, or time limit. (iii). Banishment for no less than one elven month. (iv). Execution, ritualistic or otherwise dependent if the transgression has also slighted the Ancestors. If the Prince is found to be guilty of high treason, of which is the act of endangering the peoples of the Principality for their own desires, then they are to be impeached, and removed from power by the acting council. Any one member of the council is able to make a claim to the throne if the charges of high treason are applicable. Should a council member challenge the reigning Prince(ss)’s claim to the throne, they will be subjugated to a honourable dual by combat, chess, or any other means which is agreed upon by the two participants Maladministration: if the action of an official being found inefficient, incompetent, or in negligence of their appointed position. A maladministration charge may be leveled against a council member by another, or by petition of the citizenry - or against a lower official by council member or similar petition by the citizenry. In the case that an individual has been shown to have committed maladministration without intent to harm the principality, the first in the following list of available punishments is mandatory, with those that follow after it being applicable dependent on the severity of the mishandling of position. (i). A fine ranging from 100 minas to 600 minas. (ii). Removal from official position. (iii). Banishment for no less than one elven month. (iv). Public lashings to not exceed twenty strokes. In the case that an individual can be shown to have committed maladministration with intent to harm the principality, or that the negligence of their position may have resulted in some harm or another to the citizenry, the punishments detailed in 1.4§c1 are similarly applicable, with the caveat that both the first and second are mandatory. Section 1.5 On Enforcement Policies and Vigilantism. This section intends to define in part the duties guaranteed to individuals in a law enforcement role within the Principality, as provided in the council. Further, controls and regulations regarding the act of vigilantism are put in place in the following subsections. Certification of Privilege Provided to Law Enforcement: Law enforcement is defined as those entities that the Principality has designated responsible for keeping its citizenry safe and has provided certification to handle any potentially damaging situations that the Principality might face. Individuals within law enforcement may take liberties to detain, restrain, or disable any individual they have reason to suspect might be in violation of the Principality’s regulations. Privilege provided to these citizens is revoked during any criminal investigation or trial that such a member might be a party to, and will remain revoked if a guilty verdict is found by council. Protections Against Inquest for Law Enforcement: As part of their duties, law enforcement officials are not subject to legal backlash as part of their day-to-day routines and any extraordinary circumstances that may arise during them. This is to say that if - while on duty - a member of law enforcement must violate standard conduct to ensure the safety of the Principality and its citizens, that they may not be tried in council for such a transgression, so long as it can be shown they were acting in the interest of the state. Definition and Principality Stance on Vigilantism: Vigilantism is defined as one or more citizens taking the law into their own hands, generally through either the deescalation, apprehension, or diffusion of a criminal element or situation. The Principality considers the vigilante an unlawful entity for the sake of criminal considerations, however - if the act results in apprehension of one or more criminals by law enforcement - the council will drop any pending charges against the vigilante and they may be rewarded for their act of bravery.Provided that the vigilante act does not lead to the capture of a criminal, or if the assumed criminal is proven innocent before council, the following punishments may be levied upon the vigilante in question. (i). A fine of 50 minas. (ii). Required service within law enforcement. (iii). Incarceration for no more than one elven day. Should the vigilante not be a citizen of the Principality, all of the punishments as defined in 1.5§c1 are applicable, with the additional option of exile for a period of time as determined by council. Section 1.6 On Religious Policies, Guidelines, and Enforcement. The council of the Principality is a decidedly secular station, however, recognizes the deep religious and spiritual origins that the Mali’ker people owe themselves to. As such, this section seeks to put in place religious protections for citizens and non-citizens alike, provides state support for sponsored religious entities, and outline common religious crimes. Certification of Privilege Provided to Religious Practitioners: The Principality chooses to acknowledge the worship of one’s ancestors as the true faith of the Mali’ker people, and as such guarantees the safety of this religion’s practitioners - no matter of what origin or nation - within its lands, so provided that these practitioners harbor no intent to directly participate in the harm of the Principality nor its allies. Other faiths are similarly welcomed within the Principality, however the same extent of international privilege does not apply to those seeking entrance and acceptance on religious merit alone. Support for Ancestral Worshiping Organizations: The council extends its support to the primary worship of the Principality, by offering the current head of the Ancestral religion a place within its ranks. This individual, for all intents and purposes, is a functioning member of the council, though not a true official for the purposes of diplomatic relations and regulations. Practitioners of ancestral worship within the Principality’s lands will also be shown leniency by the council should any crime they stand accused of being directly related to the veneration of an ancestor. Desecration: is defined as the act of one or more criminals vandalizing, defacing, improperly honoring, or otherwise interrupting the intended function of a place of worship. For the purposes of this regulation, all places of worship are considered equal, regardless of the venerated figure intended by the location. Should the criminal committing this act be a citizen of the Principality, the following punishments may be issued against them after trial by council. (i). A fine to not exceed 300 minas. (ii). Public service by task of manual labor in religious areas. (iii). Public lashings or beatings. (iv). Exile for a period of no less than one elven week. Should the criminal committing this act be a non-citizen of the Principality, any applicable punishments found in 1.6§c1 may be issued, in addition to ritualistic sacrifice to the desecrated shrine should this individual be a known criminal. Heresy: is defined as the act of one or more criminals publicly expressing falsehoods or slanderous opinions relating to any religious organizations (or venerated entities) supported by the council. Dissent of this category may be carried out privately within one’s own dwelling, however is considered a most heinous crime even in the case any pious individuals overhear the unlawful speech. In the case that the criminal speaking heresy is a citizen of the Principality, the following punishments may be applied to them upon first offence, with the caveat that the final punishment should only be considered if the heretical individual is a repeat-offender. (i). A fine of no less than 200 minas. (ii). Incarceration for no less than two elven days. (iii). Public service by task of manual labor in religious areas. (iv). Public lashings or beatings. (v). Ritualistic execution to please the slighted ancestors. In the case that the criminal speaking heresy is a non-citizen of the Principality, any of the applicable punishments found in 1.6§c1 may be issued, however with the caveat that the final punishment may be applied to a first offence heinous enough to warrant its inaction. Athos Corrin, Lord Arbiter of the Principality of Vira’ker
