  1. Consulary Republic of Holm

    The Holmite Knoxween Festival

    Orange and black banners are strung over Holm, pumpkins littered everywhere throughout the city. Knoxween has struck! [ ! ] A flier is pinned to the wall here, dangling and wiggling in the wind. A Knoxween Festival will be hosted in the City State of Holm within two stone days! Apple bobbing, an archery contest, and an entertaining performance will be hosted during the event. Be there or be square! – Consul Caesar E. Curseus [OOC] The event will take place from 1pm-4pm EST on Saturday, October 27th. See you there!
  2. [!] "Hear ye'!" the town crier shouts, rushing down the Republic's streets. "Da' new temp'rary Despot takes th' throne, 'e does! Despot Dimlin in'a coma, read'bout it!" The Consulary Republic of Holm Despotic Crisis The grand opening for the Irongut Palace had taken place on the 14th of the Sun's Smile, 1684, to commemorate both a monumental feat of Holmite ingenuity, and the newly crowned Despot, Dimlin Irongut, who recently succeeded the throne from prior Despot, Dorin Irongut. The party included royal delegates from the Kingdom of Haense, former High Prince Belestram Sylvaeri, former Holmite Senator Atandt Irongrinder, Krugmarian Rex Blogus'Raguk, Consul Caius-Roswell Rubens, the Holmite Council members, and various other common guests. Unfortunately, late into the party, Despot Dimlin Irongut's drink had been poisoned by an assailant. Medical practitioners immediately noticed his pale condition, resting the Dwarf on his side. Two doctors, both professors at the nearby Academy, came to the conclusion that he had been poisoned by a substance brewed with Alabaster leaves. The Brigade then evacuated the hall, not allowing the guests to leave the party until further notice. Despot Dimlin Irongut lays on the floor of the Palace's lobby, surrounded by medical practitioners and guardsmen. Suspects ranged from nearly every guest in attendance, to foreign ambassadors, even to some currently disgruntled statesmen. Initially, the Haensetic delegates were suspected, having only swiftly left the party a mere eight Saint's minutes before the incident took place. Furthermore, suspicions of former Senator Atandt Irongrinder were lobbed about, claiming that he was awfully disgruntled for having been banished some odd four years ago, under advice from then-Brigadier General Dimlin Irongut. The Orcish delegates were also accused, but later testimonies cleared any suspicions of Orcish wrongdoings, as all Krugmarian delegates had been auditing a law class on the top floor at the time of the attempted assassination. However, the mere squire -- a young Dark Elven boy by the name of Ukazelle -- was later interrogated under suspicion of foul play. The child's gloves had been found with Alabaster leaflet stains, the same substance utilized to poison the Despot. After Brigadiers attempted to subdue the boy, he relentlessly resisted, eventually revealing a dagger on his person. Fortunately, after being hospitalized, the process of poison removal by medical practitioners had begun. The Despot is estimated to make a full recovery, but doctors have deemed him "Unfit to serve his role as a nation's leader" at this present time. As a result, the Constitution of Holm was consulted, and Article III, Section C, subsection B was cited as follows; "In the event that the Despot dies, passes away, resigns, is impeached before the end of their term, or is at any point unable to serve their role, the next eldest Irongut shall be offered the position until legitimate elections can be held. Should the next eldest Irongut refuse the offer, the position shall be extended to the next in line, and then so forth." -- III.C.B of the Holm Constitution Almost instantly, the Tribunal Council was tasked with locating the next eldest Irongut, and inaugurating him to become the defacto, temporary Despot, until medical practitioners were to deem Despot Dimlin Irongut fit to serve. Master Treasurer Dwain Irongut was inaugurated on the 15th of the Sun's Smile, 1684, to act as temporary Despot to the Republic. Consul Caius Roswell-Rubens swears Treasurer Dwain Irongut into Despotic office, holding his hand on a copy of the Constitution, whilst Despot Dimlin Irongut rests by his bedside in the background, induced in a coma. Dwain Irongut will serve as Despot until Despot Dimlin Irongut is able bodied and mentally prepared to serve his role as Despot once again. Dwain Irongut shall then be Constitutionally obligated to abdicate the throne back to the previous Despot. The suspect has been detained and awaits trial by means of the Chief Magistrate. Motives are still unclear, and it is unknown at this time if the suspect had collaborated with any external forces. [!] The notice concludes here.

  4. [!] A familiar notice scours the lands for willing students to once again pursue academic, military, and craftsman degrees for the Academy's next semester. Scholars of Atlas, we are blessed and honored to open the doors of our humble Academy once more. Whether you decide to embark on a new academic expedition, or to pursue your current studies, you are more than welcome within the halls of The Academy of Holm. While this would not be the first attempt at opening up our doors to the public, our previous Headmasters, Kardel Irongut and Caius Roswell-Rubens, have provided us with the information that should lead us to a successful semester, by imposing a less strenuous class system upon the students. The Academy of Holm plans on making classes as hands-on as possible, making students intrigued with the subject matter at hand, rather than sitting and taking notes every class. In addition, class schedules won't be nearly as rigorous, granting students the freedom to study at their own pace whilst participating with the rest of the class. The number of classes we offer has also decreased, due to a high demand of specific courses in our previous years. All those who value education can find a place for themselves within the Academy. Graduation Requirements and Degrees Compared to our previous years, the number of Degrees we shall offer will decrease, as well as the requirements for each. At The Academy of Holm, we wish to focus more on success within your individual fields, rather than making you take multiple classes to receive a degree. Graduation Requirements The only requirements for graduation are the completion of your class. We pride ourselves on academic flexibility, with gracious professors adjusting their schedules to suit the needs of the students. Degrees Under the new administration of The Academy of Holm, there shall now only be three degrees available to our students. These degrees have been tailored to allow students to focus on either a single subject, a field of subjects, or attempt to master a multitude of subjects. These degrees are made to accommodate all students, from those attending the academy for a single field of interest, to the aspiring scholars striving to master as many disciplines as possible. Practical Degree Upon earning your Practical Degree, you shall have completed and passed one (1) course within the Academy (Ex: Practical Degree in Engineering). While this is the most basic and simplistic degree offered, it proves that you, as a student, have attained the necessary tools to properly delve into the world of your given academic field. Honorary Degree Upon earning your Honorary Degree, you shall have completed and passed three (3) courses within the Academy. This degree shows dedication to knowledge, and an expertise in a larger amount of subjects. In addition, Honorary students will be required to take a final exam at the end of the semester Master’s Degree Upon earning your Master’s Degree, you shall have completed and passed five (5) courses within the Academy. This degree displays the utmost dedication to your subjects, expertise in your fields, and prowess in academics. In addition to the completion of your classes, Master students must also complete a large project at the end of their final semester, tailored towards your class experience at the professor's discretion. This may include a written thesis, a series of hand crafted merchandise, a novel, or other project subjects. There are also post-graduate courses for those wishing to pursue their doctorate, earning the official title of "Doctor" in their respective field. See the handbook for more details. Classes & Tuition While the number of courses has decreased, at least for the time being, we are proud to bring you sixteen classes, taught by some of the greatest academic minds within the confines of Atlas. Along with the decrease in class sizes, the tuition for The Academy of Holm is now only 75 Minae per class, drastically lowered from previous semesters! The decrease in cost is to allow more pupils access to our Academy, hoping to spread academic excellence to every aspiring scholar possible. Each semester lasts six weeks. At the end of every semester, your evaluations will be calculated, to determine if you qualify to earn your degree.

    The Plebian’s Guide to Holmite Government

    [!] Within the Academy of Holm's library lies a newly issued government handbook, explaining the basic inner workings of the Holmite government. The Consulary Republic of Holm A Guide to the Basic Inner-Workings of the Holmite Government 1677 Edition TO BE ISSUED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, FOR THE PURPOSE OF GENERAL PUBLIC AWARENESS ON THE FUNCTIONS OF GOVERNMENT. Since the original foundation of the Republic in 1645, the denizens of Holm have enjoyed the increased privileges of residing in one of the only civilizations to allow the common man participatory actions in the process of governing. For the purpose of educating those interested in the affairs of Holmite government, this handbook has been issued to allow those individuals insight into how the government itself functions. This handbook will cover; The Constitution The Branches of Government The Tribunal Council Political Parties THE CONSTITUTION Following the reformation of Holm unto Atlas by the Irongut Clan, traditional methods of governing began to devolve as the gates of the city-state were relinquished to eager migrants. The current rule of law was determined by the previous Charter of Holm, which had originally devised the foundation of the Republic. After highlighting multiple outdated tenets of the Charter, such as compulsory military service, the ability to wear purple, and the restriction of the freedom of thought, Senators began to engage in a fervent debate over the structure of a new Constitution. The end results was increased voting rights for the Senate, an expanded bureaucracy, and a basis for written law. After numerous amendments and revised articles, the Constitution was finally ratified on the 10th of the Grand Harvest, 1673. The Consulary Republic of Holm had overhauled the government, to make it more efficient for the elected officials and leadership of the nation. However, it is permissible that one may posses questions even after reviewing the Constitution, concerning the more adept notions of government. How are the branches of government kept in check, to ensure no individual or institution evolves into a tyrant? What powers does the Despot retain over the Consuls? Who cedes control over the armed forces? It is our hope that this handbook could elaborate on any inquiries the signatories of democracy may have. BRANCHES of GOVERNMENT As with every government, the state distributes various tasks to different agencies and departments, in order to ensure that a single individual or institution does not wield unchecked powers, and to mandate that the leaders of the nation are not entirely burdened with every single governmental affair. For this reason, the Constitution divides the state into three branches; Legislative, executive, and defense. A graph detailing the power dynamics between various government institutions. LEGISLATIVE Holm is a bicameral Republic, entailing the possession of two separate champers of legislature. The Senate is revered as the most powerful chamber both in the legislature, and the most influential institution in government as a whole. It's here where every registered citizen and noble appears to present legislation, vote on bills, and elect the new Consuls. The Senate is constitutionally required to convene once every two Stone's weeks to discuss changes to government policy, but informal sessions of the Senate may be assembled by Nobles or the Consuls, in order to discuss imminent emergencies, disasters, negotiations, or other time-sensitive content. The legislature has final authority on nearly every aspect of government. In contrast, the House of Nobles is a legislative body composed strictly of the noble men and women of Holm. As opposed to being conducted by the Consul in the Senate, the Despot of Holm conducts meetings in the House of Nobles, and are called to assembly at the discretion of the Despot. They act as his advisory board, offering the Despot their input on higher governmental affairs, diplomacy, whether or not to veto certain legislation, and whatever else may concern the Despot. The only time that the House of Nobles is required to meet is to elect a new Despot as soon as possible. Only those hailing from the Irongut Clan may serve as Despot. EXECUTIVE Undoubtedly, the executive branch of Holm is the most expansive, including the elected leaders of Holm, the various members of the Tribunal Council, and most federal employees. The Consuls are elected by the Senate, once every four Stone's weeks. It is their responsibility to ensure that government operate accordingly, directing members of the Council to carry out whatever actions they legally deem necessary for the well being of their constituents. The Senate will elect two Consuls, in two separate elections, for the purpose of a balanced and fair government. Both Consuls retain the same amount of political power, neither surpasses each other in terms of rank. Assuming the Consuls come to a compromise on most state matters, then they'll be undisturbed by other branches of government. Although, if they disagree on a disputable matter, such as an appointment to the Council, then the issue will be disputed in the Senate. The Despot of Holm retains less executive privilege, but serves as the face of the nation, the most esteemed tool of diplomacy. In addition, he is also tasked with maintaining the original Dwinic culture of Holm, and reminding the denizens that Holm was founded upon the labor of the Irongut Clan. The Despot's final task is to be the highest ranking military officer, retaining a final say in matters relating to the armed forces. The list of Consuls throughout Holm's history. The Consuls are permitted to appoint individuals to a high government institution known as the Tribunal Council, composed of government executives tasked with operating various branches of the government. Constitutionally, the Tribunal Council must appoint a Master Treasurer, High Diplomat, Brigaider-General, Chief Magistrate, and Minister of Interior. These executives serve at the pleasure of the Consuls, conducting day to day operations. Other departments not required by the Constitution can also be created, such as the Department of Education and Department of Transportation, but they will serve as sub-departments under larger agencies already implemented. The complete Tribunal Council includes the aforementioned department directors, the Consuls, and the Despot. Federal employees do not serve on the Council. DEFENSE The final branch of government is that of defense, encapsulating all of the armed forces in Holm. Directed by the Despot himself, his militaristic decisions override all other government official's, with the exception of a few declaratory acts -- such as waging war -- which can only be performed in the Senate. All other military exercises are directed by the Brigadier-General, who acts as the head of the defense branch. The Consuls do have provisional control over the defense department, but their decisions may be vetoed by the Despot at any time, lest that decision conflicts with another constitutional statute. THE TRIBUNAL COUNCIL Elected Leaders Despot Dorin Irongut First Consul Dizzy Irongrinder Second Consul Caius Roswell-Rubens Department of Interior Evan Katke, Minister of Interior The Department of Interior handles the enactment of domestic policies within Holm. Ranging from cultural ceremonies to social programs, this agency's utmost responsibility is to ensure the well-being of the denizens of Holm. This department's major responsibilities are; Healthcare Education Festivals & Cultural Events Organizing Elections Agriculture Communication between the state and the people Department of Foreign Affairs Fili Grandaxe, High Diplomat The Department of Foreign Affairs is tasked with maintaining peaceful relationships with foreign nations, conversing with foreign leaders, and securing information to brief the Consuls and Despot. Their responsibilities are; Managing ambassadors Trade agreements Treaties General diplomacy Drafting public statements on foreign policy Department of Treasury Dwain Irongut, Master Treasurer The Department of Treasury is responsible for the monetary and fiscal policies of the Republic. Not only do they organize and maintain the budget, they also act as general economic advisers, commerce executives, and urban developers. Their responsibilities include; Securing and holding the federal budget Tracking the distribution of minae to various departments Anticipating the ramifications of various economic policies Steward duties, such as selling homes and collecting taxes Verifying the social status of denizens Department of Justice Zahrer Irongrinder, Chief Magistrate The Department of Justice is responsible for all judicial proceedings in the nation. It is their job to not only prosecute the crimes of peasants, but to also prosecute politicians and government employees who have violated the law. Their responsibilities include; The appointment of judges, magistrates, and public attorneys Conducting trials for those accused of committing a crime Settling lawsuits filed against a resident, citizen, or noble Reviewing legislation passed by the Senate to ensure it's constitutional Iron Brigade Dimlin Irongut, Brigadier-General The Iron Brigade is the umbrella organization for all military battalions, agencies, and any other function of the armed forces. They're tasked with both local law enforcement and warfare. Although their Brigaider-General, the top ranking inner-agency military official, sits on the Tribunal Council, they are the only member of the Tribunal Council not technically apart of the executive branch, but is instead the head of the defense branch. Their responsibilities include; The enforcement of local laws The participation in warfare The protection of state leaders and constituents alike Undying loyalty to the Despot Assessments on national security SUB-DEPARTMENTS Department of Education Azkel Frostbeard, Headmaster Sub-Department of Interior The Department of Education directs all educational initiatives in the Republic, and is proudly based at the Academy of Holm. They're tasked with scientific innovations from within the Republic, recognizing medical breakthroughs, publishing academic reports, and allowing scholars to give public lectures to students. Their responsibilities are; To deliver a quality education to all Holmite residents in search of such To publish academic and scientific breakthroughs The registration of foreign students To hire teachers and other academics Department of Transport [VACANT], Director of Transport Sub-Department of Treasury As part of a temporary initative to construct massive railroads across Atlas, the Department of Transport was formed in 1673, tasked with the construction of these railways. Their responsibilities now include the following; Negotiating the construction of railroads Constructing railroads Maintaining and repairing railroads Regulating roads, horse stables, canals, and other methods of transportation POLITICAL PARTIES Political parties in Holm have only recently become a major factor in Holmite politics. Currently, there are two major political parties, of which half of registered Senators have subscribed to. The rest of the populace remains independent, choosing not to officially register with any political party. Dwarven United Party Often referred to as the DUP, the Dwarven United Party unites itself behind traditionalist policies, often associated with Dwinic values. The party is undoubtedly more socially conservative than the opposition, also opting for economic policies more capitalist in nature. They generally advocate for policies in favor of an increased military budget, assertive foreign policy, granting increased political powers to Nobles, maintaining traditional Dwarven values, free markets, and a smaller bureaucracy. Reformist Party The Reformist Party, founded in 1669, is often regarded as the more "progressive" union of Senators. Their original purpose was to lobby the Senate for the ratification of a new Constitution, granting increased rights to the citizenry class. They generally advocate for policies in favor of a non-interventionist foreign policy, increased immigration, a larger bureaucracy, social and civic liberalism, and a protectionist trade policy. As of this time, there has never been another political party. All registered voters are either members of the DUP, the Reformists, or remain independent. It is evident that, at times, the government of the Republic can be confusing. We hope this handbook acts as a general guide, to assist you in deciphering the basic tenets of the state.

  14. Consulary Republic of Holm

    The Constitution of Holm; A New Era of Government

    [!] In anticipation of the groundbreaking news, state couriers deliver writs to every door of each and every Holmite denizen. The Consulary Republic of Holm A notice on the passage of the Constitution & what it means for Holmites moving forward. (( For the full text of the Constitution, click here )) Introduction On the 10th of the Grand Harvest, 1673, two years after the election of Consuls Dizzy Irongrinder and Hogarth Irongut, the Senate convened to discuss the ratification of a newly established Constitution. The issue had been a contentious portion of Holmite politics for the last six years, after Evan Katke's failed campaign in '67 called for the ratification of a new, founding document to replace the prior Charter, which was universally considered an outdated piece of legislation. After the Senate anxiously met before the Consuls on the 10th of the Grand Harvest earlier this Seed, tirades ensued between both political parties -- the centrist Reformist Party and the traditionalist DUP -- about what final modifications should be considered before ratifying the document into law. For instance, Senator Fili Grandaxe, renown in the Senate for being a moderate, detailed qualms with the lack of voting rights for Nobles in the newly formed House of Nobles, an advisory body to the acting Despot, and how only Ironguts were allowed to vote in Despotic elections. In addition, DUP Senator Hyperion stated his disapproval of the proposal, due to it's inherently polarizing tenets, stating that it would encourage "divisive, partisan politics" if passed into law. After some more investigative comments, the document was finally signed into law, by a margin of 18 - 5 votes, with three Noble senators abstaining. This officially passed the new Constitution into law, discarding the previous Charter. On the 8th of the Sun's Smile, however, DUP Senator Atandt Irongrinder, a Noble, utilized his newfound rights to call an informal hearing of the Senate to order, where members of the opposition expressed their qualms with specific articles. Expressly, the Senators declared their dissatisfaction with the position of High Diplomat, stating that it should either be merged with the powers of the Despot or amended to clarify their differences in responsibilities. They also wish to change the line of succession, to swap the Minister of Interior and High Diplomat in terms of ranking. They also proposed the clarifications of what an informal meeting of the Senate could legally accomplish. The Tribunal Council Possibly the most notable alteration to the Holmite government was the creation of the reformed Tribunal Council, with the establishment of five, new departments to assist the Holmite leadership in running the government, and advising the Consuls on specific policies to pursue. (Temporary seals) The Department of Foreign Affairs The Department of Foreign Affairs, directed by the High Diplomat, maintains all diplomatic ties to foreign national entities in Atlas. The department includes any potential ambassadors, and schedules meetings between foreign representatives and the Holmite leadership, including that of the High Diplomat, who acts as a "grand ambassador." They also make recommendations to the Consuls and Despot on how to behave when interacting with foreign leaders, including how to respectfully address other leaders in accordance to their appropriate cultures. They ensure that Holm remains unaffiliated with any foreign, armed conflicts. The Department of Justice The Department of Justice, directed by the Chief Magistrate, encompasses any and all lawyers, public defendants, or judges to be potentially employed by the state. The judges are to act as impartial arbiters of the law, acting in the interest of codified law, irregardless of the accused body in question. The most scrutinizing, invaluable trait to posses in this role is the impartiality of opinion, and the disregard for personal biases. They rule on criminal hearings, civil suits, and legal inquiries into the Constitutionality of certain measures passed in the Senate. Their primary duty is to uphold the integrity of the Constitution, while also exploring the legality of legislation proposed by Senators, in addition to providing a fair trial for those accused of violating the law. The Department of Treasury The Department of Treasury, directed by the Master Treasurer, is tasked with the safeguarding of Holmite funds, the upkeep of a federal budget, housing, and other economic affairs. While accounting for income and expenses in the Holmite government, this department also acts as a "Steward's Office," filing requests for housing and appropriately relocating constituents into their appropriate homes. The Master Treasurer will also act as an overall economic adviser to the leadership. The Department of Interior The Department of Interior, directed by the Minister of Interior, acts as a "Jack-of-all-Trades" in the Holmite government, managing the actual paperwork of the Republic's various bureaucratic branches. It is the duty of the Minister to act as the utmost administrative leader, a "Chief of Staff" to the Consuls, delegating responsibilities when faced with a lack of Consular oversight. They are to be the utmost personal assistant to Holm's leaders, ensuring the government runs smoothly. Their most important task, however, may also include acting as an election commissioner, being responsible for tallying together the votes during Senate meetings and elections, to ensure that our democracy operates without fail. The Iron Brigade The Iron Brigade of Holm, directed by the Brigadier-General, is the overall law enforcement and militaristic agency in the nation. Their only function is to enforce the law to it's fullest extent, taking direct orders from the Despot to appropriately safeguard the denizens of Holm, and ensure order is instilled into our gracious society. In the unlikely event of national warfare, it is also the Iron Brigade's duty to assemble a military to defend our borders. "What does this Constitution mean for the Future of Holm?" In the coming days, constituents of Holm can expect to witness both Consuls debating who should be appointed to which federal positions. Dizzy Irongrinder, sympathetic to the DUP caucus, and Hogarth Irongut, a staunch Reformist, may encounter disagreements about which nominees should be appointed into the Tribunal Council. Should they be unable to unanimously consent on a nominee, then the Senate will convene to an informal session to either confirm or reject each Consul's selected candidate. Consular elections begin in two Stone's Weeks, so it is expected that the Consuls will swiftly decide their nominees in the following days. In addition, this Constitution ushers in a new era of democracy for the Republic. Never before has the history of descendentkind witnessed any sort of major, democratic feat; Of course, the likes of the Republics of Salvus and Carasca had existed as our predecessors, but fell to the whims of greedy men who dared place their self interest before that of their constituents. Holm is prepared to declare itself the first successful republic in history. Updates will be submitted as soon as there's anything to report on the state of governmental affairs. [!] The notice concludes.
