  1. Ve Prinzen i ve Jard A Haeseni folktale 12th of Jula and Piov, 345 | 12th of Malin’s Welcome, 1792 I write of a story told to me and my brothers by our mother, Marya Baruch var Ruthern, back when we were children many years ago. As the last of her children, and as the sickness spreads throughout my bones, I saw it fit to write this tale down on parchment for the first time since it was originally told generations ago. I dedicate the first written version of this folktale to my four sons: Karl, Rickard, Aldrik, and Varon. May they grow to be strong northerners, as their family before them. Centuries ago, in the faraway lands of Vailor, the isles of olde were riddled with the marring of violence and warfare. The unjust Duke of Courland, removing his vassals from their lands to expand his power, had angered his human neighbors. The strong men of Carnatia and Vasiland allied their forces and set off to battle against the Courlandic threat, led by an ancient Barbanov. During one such battle, that of the Battle of the Curon Forest, the Coalition was in trouble. The forest was slick from the heavy rainfall as the troupes pushed on through the tree cover. The commanders had abandoned their steeds miles back, being unable to pass through the dense underbrush and hazardous mud. The two commanders led their men onwards, toward the awaiting enemy. The Duke of Courland commanded three times the forces of the Coalition, despite this knowledge, the brave soldiers marched forth. The Courland forces hid among the trees not far off, lacking in strength and honour but not in wiliness, they brandished alchemist’s fire. As the sky grew dark and night fell, the troops drew to a halt, setting up camp not a few miles from the front lines at the orders of their Barbanov commander. They didn’t dare light a fire, eating stale bread for their supper and sleeping atop the boggy earth. Throughout the night, the Courlanders lay in wait. As dawn broke, the soldiers ate their measly rations and proceeded, cautiously, deeper into the forest. The Barbanov leader sent a scout ahead, knowing they were drawing near. Unfortunately, it was too late, in the blink of an eye, everything around the troops was flaming. The shattering of glass bottles sounded through the trees. The commander’s horse bucked with the sudden attack, and he was thrown to the muddied ground. His voice rang out over the shouts of his men, commanding them to get back into position. Following the Barbanov’s every order, the soldiers pushed forth, but they were beyond outnumbered. For each Courlander cut down, another two sprang up. The commander led the push nonetheless. As they started to lose ground, the commander realized his men were losing faith. He called out loudly, but the clash of blades and the sounds of combat drowned him out. Through the trees ahead, however, he could see something running. As it drew closer, he realized what it was. A massive northern stag, larger than a fully mature horse, burst through the trees. He continued to fight as the beast ran directly to him, leaving trampled Courlanders in its wake. In a moments gap in the onslaught, the stag lowered itself to the ground, and without hesitation, the commander hoisted himself onto its back. The Barbanov’s voice boomed louder now as he called out to the soldiers of the Coalition. Far more Courland uniforms now lay still. The commander and the mighty stag cut down all in their path, and the soldiers followed suit. All at once, an arrow whistled through the air above the battle, and pierced through the commander’s chest as his steed was midstride. He toppled from the stag, the life seeping from his body before it hit the earth. The men nearest him bellowed in rage, but followed as the stag pressed onward. Their commander was gone, yet they pushed forward until the entire enemy force lay still in the mud, and the victor’s banners were waved high. The stag retreated back into the forest from which it had come, and a cheer of northern glory echoed from the men on the battlefield. Despite their losses, they had won. Signed, The Most Honorable, Marya Annaliese Baruch-Kortrevich, Margravine-Consort of Korstadt
  2. Absolutely loved working on this build with you all. But sorry guys, I’m off to go join the druids.
  3. The nation mourns the loss of a talented poet, and in particular, a spirited mousey-haired woman welcomes the author into the Seven Skies. A dedicated writer, and yet a man who had taken the then-squire under his wing, the man to teach her how to wield a blade. A near-forgotten Primrose Kortrevich thanks the man who led her to knighthood.

  5. Traditional Haeseni Dress and Attire 6th of Jula and Piov, 328 | 6th of Malin’s Welcome, 1775 Coats and Furs Khanbej (Khan = Coat, Bej = Long) The khanbej is a traditional, high-quality coat, commonly worn by Haensemen of high standing. The coats are generally rather long, sometimes decorated with detailed embroidery or patterning. The khanbej is a favored clothing item of Ruskan descent, hailing back hundreds of years. Although worn out of necessity in the cold northern climate, the garment also displays power, masculinity, and wealth. Darskholv (Darusz = Furry, Kholv = Cold) The darskholv is a common clothing piece worn by both men and women throughout the kingdom. Both fur stoles and fur coats are included in the generalized term, ‘darskholv.’ These garments are worn to stave off the biting cold during frigid Haeseni winters. Generally tailored of rabbit, fox, or mink fur, they offer not only protection from the cold, but unique fashion within the Haeseni courts. Men and women of high status and skill may wear darskholvz of wolf pelt to display honor and bravery. The darskholv, just like the khanbej, was also a historically Ruskan vestment. Dresses and Gowns Sanguss (Sansk = Dress, Guss = Poor) The sanguss is a traditional dress worn by Haeseni women of low status. These dresses, generally sewn with inexpensive or cheap fabrics, are beautiful nonetheless. The dresses feature distinct cinching strings across the bodice, and ribbon bows around the waist. The positioning of the ribbon, if worn properly, is important to note. A woman with a bow-tied against her right hip is displaying her married status, a woman with a bow tied across her middle may be undecided or courting, and a woman with a bow on her left hip remains unspoken for. This garment is traditional of Hansetian dress, passed down through generations of Haeseni women. Sanbej (Sansk = Dress, Bej = Long) The sanbej is the expensive counterpart to the sanguss. These fine gowns, worn by women of high standing and wealth, are common among the royalty and nobility within Hanseti-Ruska. They are finely tailored with materials such as silk, satin, and linen. These dresses do not generally feature the classic bow of the sanguss, and instead, don classier patterns and embroidering. These gowns are most often worn at floor-length, and consist of multiple layers of fabric, helping to insulate against the chill. Hats, Shoes, and Otherwise Heusjet (Heut = Hat) The heusjet, known in common as the beret, is the most commonly worn hat in the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska. These are usually worn by men, but women may also be seen donning these hats. The heusjet is a more recent addition to tradition Haeseni garb, becoming more common within the last century, and has recently been added to the uniforms of the Haense Royal Army. Baijlejz (Baijlej = Boot) Baijlejz are the most commonly worn footwear, having been crafted and sold for hundreds of years. These boots are made of sturdy leather and can range from ankle-high to more than halfway up the shin. The soles of these boots are generally made from maple or elmwood and are well polished and sealed. A wide range of options can be seen in these shoes, and are worn by both men and women. Anzkhanz (Anz = Hands, Khan = Coat) Anzkhan is simply the New Marian word for ‘glove.’ Usually made out of leather or wool, anzkhanz are worn throughout the winter months to protect the hands from the icy cold. These small accessories are generally fairly simple in appearance, worn more so for practicality than a sense of fashion. Plate and Uniforms Platen (Platen = Plate Armor) Platen is mostly worn by the nobility of the Kingdom, the majority of which represents the colors of each House. Consisting of more expensive material, platen is not seen as often, unless worn by a soldier of higher ranking, or the aforementioned nobility. Due to the colder climate of Hanseti-Ruska the armor is typically insulated and worn with varying amounts of fur. Junen (Junen = Uniform) Junen is adorned most often by the Royal Army of the Kingdom, though can be seen within the levies of the past and present. The current junen of the Kingdom represents the coat of arms of the King, displaying a red and white background with the colors of House Barbanov forming the shape of a shield. Published Posthumously, Her Royal Highness, Amelya Valeriya Barbanov, Princess of Hanseti-Ruska (( Thank you to: @NJBB for help writing the bottom section @Unbaed for the artwork for the ‘Sanguss’ @garentoft for help with the New Marian words ))
  6. Kamila Baruch begins work on fashioning a miniature party hat for Henry, grooming her treasured pet for the festivities!
  7. When Red Runs Crimson “Of the three princesses will remain two, one’s color is faded the other in blue. The shadow grows, it moves closer. Tick. Tick. Tick. Louder and louder. Fire… fire and war. So much war.” The words of a child, ginger-haired and eerily spoken, radiated through the red princess’s mind as the sounds of the forest echoed around her. Her mind was fuzzy, and she could feel her clarity slipping through the cracks. Cheers and song echoed through the tall, northern trees as the small Haeseni troop drew to a halt. -=- ‘Moonfire’ they had called it. The sickly scent of the purple smoke had been intoxicating, and the Scyflings had been unsettlingly kind and inviting. A night where the violence and cruelty of war were null and void, and loud celebrations were held. The Scyflings had invited the Haensemen into their camps to drink and be merry. And merry they were, for the purple flames bloomed puffs of strong incense, working its way into their heads and forming a false sense of joy among their ranks. -=- They had hastily left the camp as the effects had begun to take hold, those now-jolly Haensemen, working their way through the trees to scout out their other acquaintances. They, too, seemed to be celebrating this holiday and its mind-clouding vapor. The troops, however, were high-strung, the forest creatures causing them to jump and start despite the festivities. -=- Unfortunately, their paranoia was not unwarranted, as a lone arrow thudded to the ground before them. At the raised exclamations of the Haeseni, the drunken Scyfling celebrators rushed to their aid. They quickly started for New Reza, not bolstering the numbers to engage in a conflict. Unfortunately, as they crossed Boot Bridge, they realized they had no choice. A group of Scyflings, intricately dressed, clambered over the ridge before them. The young princess in their midst, being the only one to spot them, quickly called for the soldiers to raise their shields. But she herself stood front and center, as to take the brunt of the first volley of arrows. -=- Amelya reeled backward as an arrow buried itself in her navel, causing her to cry out in pain. One of the knights rushed to her aid, shielding her as he assisted in her retreat. As her strength faltered and the blood pooled, however, Ser Ivan resorted to carrying her, causing her beloved beret to fall to the muddied road. -=- The boy’s prophecy continued to toll in her worsening mind, echoing and repeating as her gaze fell upon the river at their flank. This river, she knew, led to the cursed lake she had been terrified of since her childhood. It had taken her grandmother, her aunt, it was there she had disposed of her mother’s assailant. It was why she had never learned to swim; never dared to try. Despite this, in her weakening state, the water called to her. She would not allow Bralt to have her, she wished to return to her family. -=- With the last of her strength, she wrenched free of Ser Ivan’s grasp, dragging herself to the bank. By the time her Uncle Godfric arrived, the man who had raised the orphaned princess for the majority of her brief life, the princess was nearly dead, oblivious to all but the choppy words clanging in her head. As she attempted to look to those offering help, another arrow struck her in the side. She jolted, tumbling into the water she had dragged herself too. She was swept away instantly, the rapidly moving river sending the near-dead woman down the length of the foothills. “Rest with the moon, Crow.” Hardly anything passed through her mind as the river spat her out into the frigid lake. No memories, no final vows, only the words of the prophecy. Down she sank, too weak to even flail, the prophecy pounding in her skull. Tick. Tick. Tick. Her numbed hands managed to unclasp the last of her plate as the air left her lungs. Fire… fire and war. The bubbles rose as she mouthed it. Finally, as her mouth closed, the life faded from her body, and up she rose. -=- Hours later, a small child in a tiara darted past, skittering to a halt along the lake’s shore. “A-Auntie Amelya!” the child had called out, waving to her aunt as she swam in the lake. The child’s brows furrowed as she noticed the woman’s lack of response, lack of movement. “..Auntie Amelya?” she repeated, eyes widening in disbelief. A wail echoed from the young princess as the realization washed over her. She stared at her aunt, floating motionless in the freezing water. With that, she ran breathlessly for the city, her fine skirts billowing behind her as she carried the terrible news to their family. “Of the three princesses will remain two, one’s color is faded the other in blue.” REQUIESCAT IN PACE Amelya Valeriya Barbanov 1750-1773 “If I can not die for our people, why should they die for me?”
  8. Princess Amelya Valeriya gasps as she dismounts her horse, having ridden to the burial site upon reading the missive. She draws a hand to her mouth as she looks over the desecrated grave of the woman who had died defending her. The grave she had dug herself to lay the Helvetti woman peacefully to rest, lay churned and ruined. “What putrid, rancid people. To dig up one from their final resting place is an act against Godan himself. Lady Arianne was a woman of Haense, this will not go unpunished.” The young woman cursed under her breath, laying a lone flower across the headstone that was now knocked askew. “Requiescat en pasce.” she murmured, “We’ll see this injustice solved.”
  9. Reinstitution of the Royal Duma, 1773 8th of Grona and Droba, 326 | 8th of The Grand Harvest, 1773 Issued by Her Excellency, Marya Kortrevich, Lady Speaker of the Royal Duma and confirmed by His Majesty Sigmund II of Haense Following four years of constant battles and conflict, the Lady Speaker has decided that it is no longer reasonable to withhold sessions of the Royal Duma. The reasoning for this decision is as stated below. After four years without a gathering of the body, there is a necessity for the resuming of legislation within the Kingdom. Although the Scyflings remain a threat, domestic law must return to its previous standing for the good of our civil state. The voices of our lords and governmental representatives must continue to be heard despite outside threat. Due to these reasons, the Royal Duma of Hanseti-Ruska shall hereby resume its sessions on the 8th of Tov and Yermey, 326.

  11. Suspension of the Royal Duma, 1769 10th of Jula and Piov, 322 E.S.|10th of Malin’s Welcome, 1769 Issued by Her Excellency, Marya Kortrevich, Lady Speaker of the Royal Duma and confirmed by His Majesty Sigmund II of Haense Due to the recent aggressions along our northern coasts, the Lady Speaker has decided that it is in the best interest of the Kingdom that the Royal Duma be suspended until the threat has passed. The reasoning for this decision is as stated below. Our lords and military commanders are needed on the battlefront as frequently as possible, rather than in the chambers. The focus on the Scyfling invasion allows little time for the proper formulating and writing of bills. Members should be focused on war happenings and the security of our coasts over attending the Royal Duma at this time. Sessions of the Royal Duma will resume once the Scyfling invaders have been defeated and disposed of. The Lady Speaker will see to it that sessions return to normal once approval is received from the King to do so. IV JOVEO MAAN, Her Excellency, Lady Marya of the House of Kortrevich, Lady Speaker of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, Margravine of Korstadt, Baroness of Koravia
  12. Though the two had never spoken, Dame Primrose Kortrevich welcomed the young Haeseni swords-woman into the Seven Skies with open arms. “Yet another woman who died to protect our kingdom.” the aged knight-ess spoke to her in an admiring tone. “There’s no better way to go, young one, but you went too soon. A grand dame you would have made, child. A grand dame.”
  13. A dame, lost to the lands of ancient Athera, glares down from the Skies upon the fleet of ships along the northern coast. “You absolute rat of a ‘man.’ Had it not been for you, I would not have had to make such a sacrifice. I would have returned home safely to my broken children. Now, you will fall to the Haeseni strength. We’re no longer a small party, but an entire kingdom.” Primrose Kortrevich leans back, drawing a hefty mug of Carrion Black to her lips and taking a swig. “Piss off, savage.”
  14. The Royal Academy of Saint Catherine 9th of Vzmey and Hyff, 321 E.S.|9th of The First Seed, 1768 The Royal Academy of Saint Catherine was originally put in place by Her Late Majesty Maya of Muldav; however, due to her untimely death, the state of The Academy fell into a state of disuse for a period.
