  1. DECLARATION OF REGENCY 8th of Sigismund’s End, 1713 His Imperial Majesty has deemed it suitable to pursue an extended absence as he partakes on a sentimental pilgrimage across the fabled continent of Aeldin, where his progenitors hail from. It is due to this that the Privy Council has come together to declare a state of regency across the Empire in order to better maintain the prosperous state of the Realm and to continue the ongoing war against the EU. Therefore the following is declared: SECTION I: REGENCY The Arch-Chancellor, Wilhelm Devereux, shall ascend to the position of Regent and assume the responsibilities of the Emperor until His Imperial Majesty returns. The Privy Council shall aid the newly-named regent in leading the Empire, just as they would assist the Emperor. However if a matter arises where two or more members of the Privy Council deem an issue to be so serious it should not be handled by the Regent alone, then the matter shall be handled democratically by the entire Privy Council. This can also be invoked to revoke, undo or alter the decisions made by the regent. SECTION II: WAR While most matters can be entrusted to the Regent, all matters pertaining to war shall be handled by His Imperial Highness, Martinus Horen, until His Imperial Majesty returns. This position shall be guided alongside a The Regent and a War Council that shall persist of the Grand Marshal, the Grand Knight, and the Siege Master, Tiberius Horen. If these terms are not held to then any additional powers granted to the aforementioned shall be revoked and the Empire shall sit without a sole leader until the return of His Imperial Majesty. IN NOMINE DEI THE IMPERIAL REGENT, Wilhelm of the House of Devereux, Regent and Archchancellor of the Imperium Septimus. HIS IMPERIAL HIGHNESS, Ser Martinus “The Lover” of the House of Horen, Prince and Dragon Knight, and Warlord of the Imperium Septimus HER IMPERIAL HIGHNESS, Amelia Philipa of the House of Horen, Princess of Alstion and the Imperium Septimus, Duchess of Alba and Furnestock, Lady Keeper of the Privy Seal of the Empire HIS IMPERIAL EXCELLENCY, Darius of the House of Ault, Grand Knight of the Imperium Septimus, Ordermaster of the Imperial Order of the Red Dragon and chaste servant of God. HIS IMPERIAL EXCELLENCY, Charles-Edmond of the House of Talraen, Minister of the Interior and Arch-Seneschal of the Imperial and Royal Crown of Exalted Godfrey and Renatus-Marna, Baron and Lord Protector of Rennes HIS IMPERIAL EXCELLENCY, Rozmeo of the House of Kastrovat, Lord Marshal of the Imperial Renatian Legion
  2. PACT OF VERIDIAN “Peace is not the absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.” 12th of Horen’s Calling, 1713 This pact hereby entails the principles to an accord agreed upon by the signees, to be adhered to by both their respective civilians and military alike. Should either principle be broken by a respective participant of either nation, then a truce will be inherently invoked, ergo allowing a maximum of three saints days wherein efforts to re-evaluate the accord, and, or, deem the accord no longer viable. Both signatories shall become at peace with one another, ceasing conflict between the two. Henceforth, both parties will adhere to a strict non-aggression agreement that will be enforced. Regarding the flow of goods and trade, no customs will discourage any exchange. Mobility between the nations will be enforced by both, and the roads swept of bandits who may harass our fair people. Both parties will aid one another in obtaining fugitives and criminals to their respective civilisation, unless one has a pact with said respective nation from which the fugitive hails from. Both parties will aid one another in the defensive means of any of the signatories providing they are aggressed upon. Recognising the supremacy each signatory holds over their race (Uruk, Man.) if this supremacy is contested then for the duration of the situation -- the pact will ascend into a full alliance. The Orcs of Krugmar will join in with the ongoing war against the EU, or any homogenous group, adhering to the commandments of “Desolation.” HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Antonius I of the House of Horen, Emperor of Man, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, Savoy, Courland, Santegia, and Norland, Duke of the Crownlands, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Helena, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelhold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, Farfolk, etcetera REX, Burbur’Lur Farseer and Elementalist of Krugmar, Protector of the Hou-Zi.
  3. A GREAT FACADE. Issued and Confirmed by His Imperial Majesty, Antonius I of the House of Horen,12th of Harren’s Folly, 1711 Yet another instance of Norlandic idiocy: one could deem it expected. Those of lackluster minds were once again fooled by a ploy -- a feigned missive sent out by the Imperial Grand Knight, Darius Ault, of a proposed deposition to lure them into our palace. And, as schemed, the wretched followers of Clan Ruric succumbed to Imperial Might. To their dismay, the portcullis slammed to a close, those within the throne room resembling squealing vermin who have been cornered; Bewildered as their flighty response to a feigned claim cost them their lives, the Norlanders soon realised these moments inside of the palace were their last. The Imperial regime considered pity, unable to initially unsheathe their swords and deplete the Norlandic forces - but rather heaved their heads back and relinquished laughter at the feeble attempt. Despite this, the Norlanders persisted, unwavering in their attempts to flee -- though to no avail. The laughter encompassing the room soon ceased as their ichor besmirched the lavender carpets: yet another rebellious effort thwarted. In light of this, one would hope today’s events serve as a reminder for any Adrian migrating to Vilachia to not side with men who so blatantly are outwitted by Imperials in a desperate attempt to relish in a moment of glory that will evidently never occur. No dignity, No wits, No brains. —- “It was such a good bait, I’m not even mad about it. They did all the small things perfectly.” -Hot_Dip

  6. CHIVALRIC RECONSTRUCTION ACT I. PREFACE We do issue this Act in recognition of the need for reform to the existing structures of Knighthood. This Act will therefore contain a number of provisions covering and pertaining to: the structure, formation and rules governing the Orders of Knights; the hierarchy of knights within the Empire; the general rules by which knights must serve. II. Knightly Structure No more shall all knights be held within a singular all-encompassing Order - although they will all still belong to the global community of Sers who are sworn to uphold their God-given oaths. All must, however, obey the Grand Knight who sits upon the Privy Council and lends his advice and sword-arm to the Emperor himself. The Grand Knight has the ultimate say on all issues pertaining to Knighthood, and is tasked with ensuring the sanctity of the role is maintained. All knights shall henceforth be grouped into regional orders who are granted permission to function within their localities by the Grand Knight and the Emperor. These Orders shall all, with only one exception, have Paramount Knights who lead their Orders. Paramount Knights shall answer to the Grand Knight and the Imperial Crown and maintain control over all knights within their subject Order. Ranking within such Orders is subject to the authority of the Paramount Knight - no more shall there be a centralised system of Knight Errantry - but knights may only be made and granted their spurs with the permission of the Grand Knight themself; the sanctity of the role must be held above all doubt. III. Knightly Orders The following Orders are granted permission to exist: The Imperial Order of the Red Dragon, they exist solely to serve the Emperor. They have no Paramount Knight, and instead exist as an elite of soldiery solely designed to protect the Imperial household and further their aims. Their writ runs true to this aim above all else. At the pinnacle of this Order shall stand the Dragon Knights, the foremost of the chivalric community. Their permanent existence is enshrined in law and listen to none but the Emperor himself. The Order of Pertinax, the force maintained by the Kingdom of Renatus The Order of Ursus, the force maintained by the Kingdom of Curon. The Marian Retinue, the force maintained by the Kingdom of Haense. IV. Imperial Rules There will remain a number of precepts which bind knights together across the Empire. All knights are required to undertake the same oaths to the Empire, and in the case of localities to their local ruler, and to God. All knights are also required to maintain the same Code of Chivalry; failure to maintain its precepts can result in expulsion and the honour being stripped away. Orders may add to this Code with their own additions, but they must also follow the central Code which has been passed down by knights from time immemorial. V. Knightly Code of Chivalry: ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall be loyal to the Emperor both in thought and in practice. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall live by honour and for glory. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall guard the honour of fellow Knights. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall at all times keep the faith, ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall serve his liege lord valorously and with conviction. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall persevere to the end in any quest begun. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall never turn their back upon a foe. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall refrain from the wanton giving of offense. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall never leave an insult left unanswered. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall never refuse the challenge of a duel from an equal or superior. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall respect those placed in authority. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall abstain from deceit and treason. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall never draw his blade upon a fellow Knight in unlawful combat. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall be vigilant and show courage in the face of evil. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall at all times speak truly. IN NOMINE DEI HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Antonius I of the House of Horen, Emperor of Man, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, Savoy, Courland, Santegia, and Norland, Duke of the Crownlands, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Helena, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelhold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, Farfolk, etcetera.
  7. THE ORDER OF PERTINAX Issued and confirmed by his Imperial Majesty, Antonius of House Horen, 8th of Tobias’ Bounty , 1708. MISSION The Order of Pertinax acts as Knightly Order to the Kingdom of Renatus and the Crownlands. Consisting of every sanctioned Knight within the Crownlands, the Order of Pertinax seeks to uphold the etiquette and prestige of the Knights within the realm. ENLISTMENT It is required, by decree of his Imperial Majesty, that all Knights within the Crownlands are to enlist within the Order of Pertinax. The Order of Pertinax has no uniform. It is also noted that not all Knights are Nobles, yet all Nobles should seek Knighthood, the order like all others is headed by a Paramount Knight. THE KNIGHTLY CODE OF CHIVALRY ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall be loyal to the Emperor both in thought and in practice. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall live by honour and for glory. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall guard the honour of fellow Knights. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall at all times keep the faith, ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall serve his liege lord valorously and with conviction. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall persevere to the end in any quest begun. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall never turn their back upon a foe. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall refrain from the wanton giving of offense. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall never leave an insult left unanswered. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall never refuse the challenge of a duel from an equal or superior. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall respect those placed in authority. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall abstain from deceit and treason. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall never draw his blade upon a fellow Knight in unlawful combat. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall be vigilant and show courage in the face of evil. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall at all times speak truly. THE PRIVILEGES OF KNIGHTHOOD ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall receive the privilege to don the title of Ser. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall receive the privilege to display one’s own sigil. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall receive the privilege to be armed amongst the Emperor’s Court. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall receive the privilege to govern lands in the name of the Emperor. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall receive the privilege to levy taxes upon their fiefdom. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall receive the privilege of providing counsel to the the Emperor. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall receive the privilege of the right to trial by combat. ☩ A Knight of the Empire shall receive the privilege of being buried within the Arrav Crypts. PATH TO KNIGHTHOOD Pagehood The path to Imperial Knighthood begins as the lowly page. Noble boys between the ages of seven and fourteen are inspected and chosen by Knights seeking squires. Pages attend to menial tasks, such as cleaning, messaging and otherwise serving their knight. In return, they receive an education from their knight in the form of basic combat training and courtly manners. Squirehood When a page reaches the age of Fourteen, he is elevated to the role of Squire following confirmation by the Grand Knight. Squires retain the important tasks of their past and adopt new, combat related ones, such as maintaining arms and armour, protecting the knight, and even fighting in formation. Older squires are given important duties to be carried out, and will eventually embark on their Errant quest, as prescribed by their local liege or Grand Knight, to showcase their knowledge of Knightly Custom and Virtue with the goal of eventually becoming a Knight of the Realm. Imperial Writ Should one enlist within a levy force or military order yet not hail from noble lineage, the acquirement of Knighthood remains plausible. It is the will of his Imperial Majesty that the finest of Humanity are to be Knighted and serving within the Imperium, for often times men of low birth showcase more prowess and devotion to mankind than that of gentry or lords. As such, should one be found worthy of Errantry, his Imperial Majesty shall issue an Imperial Writ, officiating the knighthood if a lowborn individual. DEGREES OF KNIGHTHOOD FIRST DEGREE - Knights Errant Knights Errant are the sons of Noblemen who seek to prove themselves honorable in Quests or Battle as a means to earn the coveted Spurs of Knighthood, which would promote them to the Second Degree of Knighthood. Knights Errant are often times inexperienced, and thus they seek to learn and progress through action rather than study. Additionally, Knights Errant do not actively serve a lord, even when directly related, as they are preoccupied with achieving personal glory rather than hereditary tasks. SECOND DEGREE - Knights of the Realm Knights of the Realm are Knights Errant who have earned their Spurs of Knighthood and granted personal fief and form the bulk of the Knights in the Imperium Septimus. Henceforth, Knights of the Realm are obligated to defend their fief, the lands and the honor of the Imperium Septimus. Alternatively, upon the Knight’s choice, a Knight of the Realm may seek out service elsewhere in the Imperium under that of a Landed Noble with a hereditary title and often times hold administrative tasks within that Lord’s holding. Should no land be available for a Knight of the Realm within the Greater Empire, it is the duty of a Knight of the Realm to expand the Borders of the Empire and plant their banners upon contested territories. THIRD DEGREE - Adventuring Knights Adventuring Knights are Knights of the Realm who, despite being offered lands and titles, renounce both in order to journey to foreign lands in hopes of becoming worthy enough to become a Dragon Knight. Adventuring Knights focus on becoming worthy of the Imperial Order of the Red Dragon, and thus they seek to perform good deeds, slay evil beings, engage in single combat honorably, or by displaying valour on the field of battle. CENSUS OF IMPERIAL KNIGHTS Paramount Knight Ser Aldis Chase Adventuring Knights Knights of the Realm Ser Phillip Marshall Ser Rozmeo Kastrovat Ser Roland Castelo Knights Errant Frederick Alexander Valentin Castelo Iros de Castillo The Rule of Pius Authored by Ser Pius Horen, the Hellstrider, 19th of the Sun's Smile, 1679. I. On the Conduct of Imperial Knights Knights of the Imperium Septimus are expected to act as the Emperor’s personal enforcers when called upon. As such, Imperial Knights are DEPUTIZED unless blackmarked. Deputization ensures that all Knights of the Imperium Septima hold the right to act as Judge, Jury and even Executioner when upholding the Emperor’s Peace. Knights of the Imperium Septimus are expected to know how to address their peers, clergymen and local liege lords. Additionally, Imperial Knights are expected to act with honour, in tandem with the Chivalric Code, in any and all given circumstances. Knights of the Imperium Septimus are expected to be in good fitness and health and ensure that their mental state is not impaired whilst in the Public Domain. As such, Imperial Knights are expected to refrain from becoming publicly intoxicated upon liquors, Uruk herbs or hallucinogens. II. On the Dress of Imperial Knights Knights of the Imperium Septimus, by decree of his Imperial Majesty, are to remain armed and armored at all times whilst within the Public Domain. In tandem, Imperial Knights are afforded the right to don the colors and sigil of their House, Liege or Circle. To wear anything less is a sign of disgrace to the Emperor. Knights of the Imperium Septimus, whilst in armor, are expected to upkeep their spurs as to ensure that they remain in good quality. Imperial Knights shall refrain from wearing pointed sabatons, shoes and shoelaces as they indicate pagan tradition and beliefs. Additionally, whilst in battle, Imperial Knights are expected to equip helmets at all times as to ensure that one's pride does not result in premature death. Should a Knight be without an adequate suit of plate due to damage, it shall be provisioned unto him by the Grand Knight until it can be repaired. Knights of the Imperium Septimus, if physical labor is to be completed, shall not remove their armor in favor of wearing flexible materials; rather, Imperial Knights shall persevere and adapt to the constrictions of their armor. Should a Knight be so physically impaired as to conduct labor, they shall utilize partisans to complete it for them. III. On the Elderly, Ill and Infirm Knights Knights of the Imperium Septimus who are above the age of Seventy shall be considered Elderly. Elderly Knights shall be afforded the option of continued servitude or retirement. Elderly Knights shall retain their titles even into retirement, as well as the benefits that the Order provisions unto them. Elderly Knights also shall receive a statue of their person within the Carolustadt Palace. Knights of the Imperium Septimus who are afflicted by viral pathogen or affliction shall be considered Ill. Ill Knights shall immediately be given leave ordered to remain within relative quarantine. Pathogens that result in illness are contagious and may threaten the lives of a Knight’s peer, and more importantly, the life of the Emperor. An Ill Knight shall remain in relative quarantine until deemed able and healthy by an Imperial Physician. Knights of the Imperium Septimus who are physically unable to conduct their Knightly duties shall be considered Infirm. Infirm Knights, if permanently physically impaired as a result of combat, shall be permitted the option of retirement. In the case of the loss of limb, an infirm Knight is expected to acquire prosthetics and persevere through their disability. Infirm Knights, who are deemed infirm as a result of personal choice (laziness, stupidity, etcetera.), shall be blackmarked. IV. On the Blackmarking of Knights Knights of the Imperium Septimus are expected to act respectfully and within the Guidelines of the Order of the Red Dragon. However, time to time, some Imperial Knights will ignore such regulations put in place to keep them in the grace of GOD and his Empire. Therefor, misconduct is a bad omen to one’s peers and becomes a disastrous precedent to be left unchecked. Hence, the implementation of Blackmarking. Knights of the Imperium Septimus who have been blackmarked have been found committing a grievance beyond repair in the eyes of the Emperor and Grand Knight, the latter of whom suggests the punishment. Blackmarked Imperial Knights are stripped of their Imperial regalia and forced to undertake a Quest of Restitution in the grace of the Empire. Such actions may only be undertaken ONCE in a lifetime. Knights of the Imperium Septum who been blackmarked and completed their quest of restitution, only to be blackmarked once more, are is to be stripped of their Knighthood via the “Chopping of the Spurs”, condemned, and banished from Imperial service. Their name will be made public, and his presence in vassal states, while a stain on their good reputation, is only barely tolerable. If said grievances are terrible enough, the former Knight may be banished from the Imperium entirely, or even executed. IN NOMINE DEI HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Antonius I of the House of Horen, Emperor of Man, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, Savoy, Courland, Santegia, and Norland, Duke of the Crownlands, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Helena, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelhold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, Farfolk, etcetera.
  8. IMPERIAL ORDER OF THE RED DRAGON ✝ “We walk in the light of the Emperor.” This declaration, issued and affirmed by His Imperial Majesty, Antonius of the House Horen on the 8th of Tobias’ Bounty, reforming the ancient Imperial Order of the Red Dragon. THE MISSION OF THE IMPERIAL ORDER Following the anarchic descent of past knightly groups into misrule and dispute the Imperial Crown has seen fit to order the reformation of the Imperial Order. The group is to serve as not an all encompassing force of chivalrous warriors, but instead a collection of the Empire’s most elite Knights. They have a single purpose - the protection and maintenance of Imperial power. Knights of the Red Dragon are mandated to protect the lives of the Imperial house and Horenic line, whilst also acting as the vanguard of wider military efforts. They are to be at the front of every military action and represent the bravest, most skilled and experienced of knights, while answering only to the Emperor himself and, established beneath him, the Ordermaster. DEGREES OF KNIGHTHOOD 1. DRAGON KNIGHT The ‘Dragon Knights’ stand at the pinnacle of the Order. The finest warriors of the Empire, renowned across the entire world, they are embodiments of all the values which the Red Dragon represents: power and dominance over challengers, obedience to the Emperor, courage in the face of certain death, unbridled military might. It is rare for any one knight in a single generation to attain such a privileged position - to do so means they have dedicated themselves entirely to the service of the Empire and proven themselves to be fighters without parallel. 2. RED KNIGHT The majority of the Order consists of Red Knights. While to many these are considered the average knights, merely normal compared to the paragons of virtue who stand above them, they are anything but. Each Knight has undertaken a lifetime of preparation for their role, proving themself totally as devoted to the Empire and capable of bearing arms in its name. Red Knights have responsibility for many things - upholding their code, guarding the Empire and its Imperial family, maintaining peace amongst the realm, leading soldiers, and aiding the Emperor in conducting his duty. THE PATH TO KNIGHTHOOD Although it is the right of the Emperor to dispense ranks as he so desires, should he recognise the exemplary strength of a certain individual and desire to place them into his service, the vast majority of new knights emerge from within the Order. Beneath Red Knight stands a lower rank - that not of a knight but an Orderman. These Ordermen are apprenticed and or squired to the legendary Dragon Knights so that they may learn their duties and train to improve themselves. Serving as auxiliaries and levy forces to the heavily armoured core, it is not rare for many to never complete their training due to its intense rigour - only the most dedicated and most skilled go on to take their place as Red Knights. Proving oneself as worthy of the position requires a hopeful to exhibit all the traits a member of the Imperial Order should display: dedication and obedience, strength and valour, piety and zealotry, intelligence and innovation. They must know the Code and live by it. LISTS OF CURRENT KNIGHTS Dragon Knights: Ser Darius Ault, Ordermaster Ser Martinus Horen Ser Jan Sigmar Ser Carlovac Kovachev Red Knights: Ser Uthred Gromach Ser John Ballard Ser Cassius Horen Ordermen: Aurelius Iani, apprenticed to Cassius Horen Theobald d’Anpalais, apprenticed to Carlovac Kovachev Edward d’Anpalais, apprenticed to Darius Ault Vitus Horen, apprenticed to Antonius Horen Zvonimir Kastrovat Philip Windsor Konyves Ivanovich Gotz Tannhauser Daniel Karl THE CODE OF KNIGHTHOOD The Imperial Order of the Red Dragon rests its values upon the ancient Code of Chivalry, revised over two centuries ago by Ser Maric II Varodyr. It is appended here: A knight shall live by honour, for glory, and guard the honour of fellow knights. Honour The Creator and maintain His Church. Keep the faith and act in righteousness. He shall serve his liege lord valorously and with conviction. Persevere to the end in any quest begun and never turn his back upon a foe. A Knight shall not give wanton offense and shall despise pecuniary reward. Give succour to widows and orphans and regard the honor of women. He shall offer that which is not needed, to those who are needy. And safeguard the helpless and uphold the weak. A knight shall respect those in authority but fight for the welfare of all. Abstain from Injustice, cruelty and deceit. He shall be vigilant and show courage, even in the face of evil. Resolve not with swords what can be with words. And at all times speak the truth, even if faced with death. In his blood the creator’s will shall be written.
  9. THE EMPEROR'S WILL: NAUZICA & KNIGHTHOOD “Where there is a will, prosperity cannot be far behind.” Issued and confirmed by His Imperial Majesty, Antonius of the House of Horen, 8th of Tobias’ Bounty, 1708 By the grace and good will of GOD, His Imperial Majesty Antonius I of the House of Horen does see fit to undertake integral changes to the order of Knighthood and the status of the Nauzican Brigade. He henceforth publishes the following edicts: SECTION I: ON THE NAUZICA The Nauzica have served their purpose under the Empire, but despite a long and valorous history, their relevance and ability to serve has faltered as time has passed. His Imperial Majesty Antonius I of the House of Horen therefore sees fit to disband the Nauzica. They shall cease to exist as a recognised branch of the Empire. SECTION II: ON THE GRAND KNIGHT By the grace and good will of GOD, His Imperial Majesty Antonius I of the House of Horen does see fit for Darius of the House Ault ascend to the privy council to serve as the Grand Knight, with a mandate to pursue reform. SECTION III: ON THE RENATIAN KNIGHTS The contemporary order of Knights encompassing the Kingdom of Renatus is named the Imperial Order of the Red Dragon -- this order shall henceforth be known as “The Order of Pertinax.” The pinnacle of the Order, Dragon Knights shall be removed to make way for a reform of the Dragon Knights into the new Imperial Order. SECTION IV: REMOVAL OF KNIGHTHOOD His Excellency, the Grand Knight has further decreed his preliminary act on the position to strip members of their knighthood. The following listed below may no longer bear the privilege to don themselves a Knight of the Empire nor may bear the title of “Ser.” IN NOMINE DEI HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY, Antonius I of the House of Horen, Emperor of Man, King of Renatus, Marna, Mardon, Salvus, Seventis, Savoy, Courland, Santegia, and Norland, Duke of the Crownlands, Avar, and Frederica, Count of Helena, Alamar, Frederica, Thesmer, Thelen, Lorath, and Cantal, Baron of Darkwood, Gravelhold, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, Farfolk, etcetera.
  10. PACT OF DRAGON AND STONE “Prosperity tries the fortunate, adversity the great.” 7th of Sun’s Smile, 1707 This pact hereby entails the principles to an accord agreed upon by the signees, to be adhered to by both their respective civilians and military alike. Should either principle be broken by a respective participant of either nation, then a truce will be inherently invoked, ergo allowing a maximum of three saints days wherein efforts to re-evaluate the accord, and, or, deem the accord no longer viable. Both nations agree to avoid conflict with each other, should a potential conflict arise, both nations respective heads shall be notified to find a diplomatic alternative. Both nations agree to permit safe and free passage of each the other nation’s citizens. The Empire of Man and the Kingdom of Agnarum agree to establish borders: The mountain range to the west of the Empire shall be recognized as dwarven lands, given that the dwarves do not build fortifications above ground or expand north or east of that. The Empire agrees to leave the under-realm to the dwarves, and will not build or alter entrances. This pact will remain in effect as long as a Horen remains on the Imperial Throne.
  11. Erathon smiles from the Seven Skies.
  12. “When you slept, what did you see?” “I saw us. Our Gladewynn from times long past. Stretching, harrowing forests that fell to deep blacks. A brilliant aurora adorning a foreign sky. And in that strange light, a lost people found unto themselves. No gates or walls marred our land - only the trees, and silent eyes within.” - Trials of the Avchirran, Viralonde A spirit of war has long inhabited the people of Gladewynn. Although this burden was shared amongst most Alderfolk, few were chosen to carry out the duties that befell the nation. Upon the Rock of Alders seven swords convened, thus forming a nation born on the dying throes of another. They lived and died, with only the rock to note their passing. Their songs and battles lay in woods forlorn by elvenkind -- yet, the spirit lingered. Deeply rooted in the blood of Alderfolk was something that had previously laid dormant. And finally, at long last, it has awoken. Refugees of the stagnated Dominion of Malin embark and accompany the King and Prince of Alders through the Barrowlands, into present day Gladewynn. The Avchirran are the primary branch of military serving the Kingdom of Gladewynn. Initially conceived as a mercenary company, they were meant to assist in the process of aiding Alderfolk refugees from Caras Eldar and therein. As Gladewynn formed and the Alderfolk joined, the company eventually became the de jure army of the nascent state. They would later reclaim lands owed to the Prince of Alders by waging war unto Krugmar. Auxiliary forces were sent to Imperial lands to bolster the Alliance’s army and assist in its conquests abroad. After a brief albeit successful campaign, those who had killed and bled in the name of the Prince and his King returned to Gladewynn as heroes. Their duties are as sung in the Seven Songs -- to defend now, and for time immemorial. A scouting party of Wolves, led by the Annilir, on patrol enduring the harsh conditions of the Barrowlands. High Command Marshal, or Annilir The Marshal is responsible for leading the Avchirran in its entirety. Their word is absolute, second only to the crown bearer. High-Consular The High-Consular is the second-in-command and acts as the de facto leader should the Marshal not be present. Typically they are responsible for carrying out disciplinary actions, managing internal disputes and boosting morale. Consular A Consular is tasked with managing a small division of the Avchirran. Distribution of materials, raiding and other errands relegated to them by their superiors are a regular set of activities they’re meant to chaperon. Army Warden Accomplished, recognized and senior warriors in service to their respective Consulares. Wardens help direct troops during everyday instances of law-breaking, civilian disputes and other domestic affairs. Herald Heralds are responsible for recruitment and public events. They create propaganda, advertise and speak to people to help them feel reassured and safe throughout the realm. Waystalker The designated scouts of the Avchirran, also called the Dread Wolves. They are charged with doing reconnaissance – scoping out enemy defenses, and keeping tabs on foreign politics from afar. Guardian Becoming a Guardian is the second stage of recruitment. Once you are bestowed this title, you are considered a full-fledged member of the military. Initiate A footelf in the standing army, often times levied from the citizenry or abroad. They have only recently sworn their oath to defend the realm unto its dying breath, and thus are in the very beginning of their military tenure. Application:
