  2. The Dark Lord of Darkness sat lonely in his room, the dim lanterns vanquished and black drapery hanging from each window within his lair. Nikolas wondered when he would next meet with his DARK Liege, even despite his mother having made him promise to not look, never mind speak with the KING. Yet, it was some of the most fun the boy has had, so he dabbled some black eyeshadow onto his face and began plotting how he could discover Malik once more.
  3. ROYAL TREASURY REPORT KRUSAE ZWY KONGZEM Issued by the Office of the Royal Treasury On this 10th of Tov and Yermey of 430 ES VA BIRODEO HERZENAV AG EDLERVIK, Since the elevation of Ser Grigori Vyronov to the office of Royal Treasurer, His Excellency has worked tirelessly to locate and employ the most industrious talents within the Haeseni citizenry, filling his once modest office to its highest potential. The most leal servants of the Crown have been sought out to fulfill the roles of the Kastellans under the Treasurer’s employ – seeking each to further the agenda of revitalization that has become necessary following the years of international conflict brought about by the Sinners’ War. His Excellency has made steady progress in this regard, working alongside those various Kastellans he has employed. For this reason, the office writes this report to keep the denizens of Hanseti-Ruska informed as to its achievements, and what other affairs have taken place pertaining to the Royal Treasury’s Office. TREASURY AFFAIRS The very first endeavor undertaken by His Excellency was to revitalize the national currency of Haense by organizing a Krawn Exchange that lasted several Saint’s Weeks and allowed subjects of the Crown to exchange outdated Krawns from previous reigns for newly-minted ones which are being introduced into circulation. This enterprise was highly successful, bringing in a great deal of funds to be used by the Crown. Additionally, in an effort to encourage internal trading and industry as opposed to looking outward for resources, the Treasury has decided to be rid of the auction house within the Golden Crow Bank. This move will leave the market of Karosgrad with a breath of fresh air, no longer bloated with the international influence of global auctions. Along with the removal of the auction house, it has become necessary to reorganize and redesign the market square of Karosgrad, which the Treasury Office quickly saw to – removing the large, poorly-designed stalls and improving the general flow of the square. In addition, this change has freed up room surrounding the Basilica of St. Heinrik, opening it up to public view free from obstruction. The shops and stalls along Crown Avenue, as well as in the town squares, are all occupied, a feat that hasn’t been achieved in a considerable amount of time. Perhaps the most impressive marker of the success of the Treasury Office in recent years, each role within the office has been filled as of the appointment of The Honorable, Lady Zoya vas Ruthern as Deputy Treasurer. Her role as Kastellan of Domestic Trade has been filled by Mr. Ariovistan Bishop, and it is the hope of the treasury that both flourish in their roles with the support of the Crown and their fellow members of the office. TREASURY EMPLOYMENT Kastellan of Stewardry, Esmée Kortrevich During their tenure, the stewardry branch has accomplished the following: I. A renovation to the stewardry ledgers to improve the performance and organization of property management II. The creation of new tax slips following her ascension to the position, after having taken over from Dracomir Rorikov. III. Begun the process of creating a system by which all Haeseni subjects may see housing and property information IV. The production of berets have been made for stewards within employ to create a uniform and sense of unity in the trade. The Kastellans of Labour, Adele Ludovar and Godric Colborn During their tenure, the labour branch has accomplished the following: I. The reorganization of the Royal vaults, coupled with the creation of plans for a full renovation to the vaults II. An audit covering the inventory of the Royal vaults and the creation of a ledger to ensure accurate records are kept III. Provisions for the collection and sale of in-demand goods through a crown-run stall in the square of Karosgrad The Kastellan of Trade, Leopold Morovar During their tenure, the trade branch has accomplished the following: I. An investigation into the various treaties and pacts of the Kingdom regarding trade II. Honoured treaties by fulfilling trade agreements with other nations III. The establishment and maintenance of foreign stalls The Kastellan of Domestic Trade, Ariovistan Bishop During their tenure, the domestic trade branch has accomplished the following: I. The ongoing audit into the shops and stalls of Hanseti-Ruska to ensure prosperity and proprietor engagement II. Communication with proprietors to ensure their needs are met III. The monitor of government-owned stalls for stock and commodity popularity. IV JOVEO MAN His Excellency, Ser Grigori Vyronov, Lord Treasurer of Hanseti-Ruska, Deputy Palatine, Knight of the Marian Retinue The Honorable, Zoya vas Ruthern, Grand Maer of Karosgrad, Deputy Treasurer of Hanseti-Ruska
  4. The Royal Treasurer pushed the door open into Lukas' room, rubbing his fingers together, "Or we profit on those sick," he said entirely joking. @Mio

  6. EMPLOYMENT WITHIN THE ROYAL TREASURY KRUSAE ZWY KONGZEM Issued by the Office of the Royal Treasury On this 12th of JOMA AG UMUND of 427 ES VA BIRODEO E HERZENAV, Positions to ensure the Aulic duties of the Treasury Office are to be reimplemented taking the previous treasurer Ser Brandt Barclay's innovations into consideration, opening employment for the denizens of Haense to work alongside the Royal Treasurer. It is the responsibility of both the Treasurer and their subordinates that the Haeseni economy is revitalized following the long drought of prosperity subsequent to the Urguani-Oren war. In order to coordinate this effort, the Office of the Royal Treasurer does hereby establish the following offices: DEPUTY TREASURER, held by [VACANT] It is a known fact of government that any leader requires a first officer to ensure the smooth running of his office. It is clear, then, that the Royal Treasurer will require an assistant in managing each of his daily tasks so as to ensure a more seamless, well-run office. The Treasurer’s duty to the Kingdom will be shared with his Deputy, who will serve as both an administrative and organizational foreperson, as well as an envoy between the councillor and his Kastellans. The Deputy Treasurer is to be responsible for managing: The organizational work of the Treasurer’s office Undertaking the usual responsibilities of the Treasurer when they are not present Aiding in keeping all pertaining ledgers up to date, or improving them Communication between the various Kastellans and the Treasurer to ensure that the performance of each branch is optimized to the fullest extent KASTELLAN OF STEWARDRY, held by Esmee Kortrevich (@dove) For lack of proper flexibility, the Office of the Seneschal is being placed within the Office of the Treasury. It is now that the Seneschal continue their duties of “overseeing the administration of the Kingdom’s land, land record-keeping and infrastructure,” under the Treasury Office, so that the two closely aligned Offices can work effectively together. Instead, they are retitled the Kastellan of Stewardry. The Kastellan of Stewardry is to be responsible for managing: The management of properties within the Kingdom The sale of properties within the city Collecting taxes yearly from property owners Evicting properties for which tax has not been paid in a timely manner The employment of stewards to aid in managing properties The Upkeep of ledgers pertaining to the branch Administrating the interior land of Karosgrad KASTELLAN OF TRADE, held by Leopold Morovar (@HogoBojo) For years, Almaris was thrust into a conflict of immense scale which disrupted the balance of international relations. The Tripartite Accord, though effective in the military realm, did little to restore global cooperation in the era of peace. Trade is an excellent tool to encourage cooperation between the Dual Monarchy and its foreign counterparts, and it is the duty of the Kastellan of Trade to ensure that this end is met. The Kastellan of Trade is to be responsible for managing: Trade that is explicitly external The upkeep of all international Haeseni shops and stalls and ensuring that: They remain stocked with merchandise Tax is paid on applicable properties Shops or stalls can be appropriately established, through work with the Office of the Envoy Financial agreements are considered and met, through work with the Office of the Envoy KASTELLAN OF DOMESTIC TRADE, held by Zoya Ruthern (@veganwalmart) Internal trade is as important as its external counterpart, hence another Kastellan should be charged with managing the trade-orientated, domestic affairs within the Kingdom. The Kastellan of Domestic Trade encourages a productive internal market by working closely with those who maintain shops or stalls. This is while bringing in capital for the Royal Treasury itself by retaining a Government owned shop, so that its citizens can be provided with desired commodities. The Kastellan of Domestic Trade is to be responsible for managing: Trade that is explicitly internal. The upkeep of all internal shops and stalls by cooperating with property owners Ensuring that each are kept up to date with new merchandise, or stock Optimizing the internal market, for example finding solutions to not having the same stock sold at three different stalls Owning and retaining a Government owned shop Keeping the stock, and merchandise up to date KASTELLAN OF LABOUR, held by Godric Colborn and Adele Ludovar (@Seuss and @CopOwl) Without the Kastellan of Labour, each branch would face hardship in meeting their duties to the Treasury, due to the inherent need for resources to be readily available to them to be effective. Labour is the backbone of the Royal Treasury, guaranteeing that prosperity can be reached. They meet the demand with supply, and promote employment so that the treasury remains rich in productivity and stock. The Kastellan of Labour is to be responsible for managing: The allocation of resources to the several other Kastellans The facilitation of labour to gather resources to supply the various ventures of the Haeseni crown Incentives and compensation for labourers under their employ The upkeep of the Royal vaults IV JOVEO MAN His Royal Majesty KARL III by the Grace of Godan, King of Hanseti and Ruska, Grand Hetman of the Army, Prince of Bihar, Dules, Lahy, Muldav, Solvesborg, Slesvik and Ulgaard, Duke of Carnatia and Vanaheim, Margrave of Korstadt, Rothswald and Vasiland, Count of Alban, Alimar, Baranya, Graiswald, Karikhov, Karovia, Kaunas, Kavat, Kovachgrad, Kvasz, Markev, Nenzing, Torun, and Toruv, Viscount of Varna, Baron of Esenstadt, Kraken’s Watch, Kralta, Krepost, Lorentz, Rytsburg, Thurant, Venzia and Astfield, Lord of the Westfolk, Fidei Defensor, Protector of the Highlanders, etcetera. His Excellency, Ser Grigori Vyronov, Lord Treasurer of Hanseti-Ruska, Knight Bachelor
  7. Ser Ailred greeted the King in the seven-skies, tapping the top of a full flagon with a finger. "What a way to go, eh?"
  8. OUT OF THE KENNEL The Hounds of Don The Hounds of Don rise from their slumber - out of their Kennels and into the fray. They stand loyal to the righteous Empire of Oren and, who they fought alongside during the Norlandic-Orenian war. Our company swells in size to fight once more against the oppressor tyrant, who holds no true claim. Bound by oath and obligation, the Hounds ride to the Bastion of Peter IV, defending soil in a vindictive defense. It is now that the dogs are released in support of the Emperor. Signed His Lordship, Ratibor af Don

  10. The Vanguard awoke early in the day to carry out his duties of which the Marian Retinue entails, wiping the dark bags beneath his eyes and tending to the freshly lined scar below his eye - it was a tale to tell one day, for it was product of the capture of Philip III. Despite the early morning lethargy, the missive served as a reminder as to why he served his King and Country, bringing a diligent smile about his face.
  11. Vladimir walks by and serenades Ernst in his grief.
  12. Vladimir Barrow var Ruthern could be seen approaching the Haeseni docks, donning an entirely black garb. Coming across a blonde haired, blue eyed man, he came to a standstill. The shaking figure asked, "Who are vy?" In which Vladimir replied, "Vengeance."
  13. Vladimir Barrow turned up to the steps of Vidaus from his nearby home after reading the missive, greeting the Baron of Rostig with an arch of his slitted brow. From there, they delved deeper into the Castle and discussed the meat of the missive. @indiana105
