  1. The Government of Haelun’or Comprehensive Edition, for Prospective Civil Servants and Scholars as published the 23rd of the Deep Cold, 1762 In this ever-changing realm, Haelun’or must adapt to emerging challenges. Today, the esteemed Heial’thilln supports the administration of the Ah’niutiran, ushering in a new political era for this bastion of silver. These amendments will provide guidance and structure to the Okariran and the State, ensuring tradition is protected while nurturing a modern understanding of Larihei’s dictum: maehr’sae hiylun’ehya. Though this programme may be ambitious, it is promulgated in the hope that these constitutional changes will serve as a foundation for future progress and lead the nation toward fi’tayna: ay’Heial’thillnae maehr’sae. liewyn'Larihei eltaeleh walehe ohn vallein eltaliyna walehe. NEW POLICIES Fundamentals of the Domains. This document will outline the purposes and functions of the Domains, as well as the duties of the Okariran with respect to these new committees. Provisions for the Absence of Councillors. This constitution renders clear who substitutes for whom in the event that an Okarir is incapacitated or otherwise absent from the city. Generally, the Annilerir will assume the duties of those Okariran charged with the logistical and political maintenance of the state, while the Maelunir will assume the duties of those Okariran working to preserve and bolster the culture and knowledge of the Silver State. The Annilerir and Maelunir. The offices of the Annilerir and the Maelunir are established to provide support for the Diarchy, to bridge the gap between the Diarchy and the Heial’thilln, and to provide for the prolonged absence of one or more of the Okariran. Elimination of the Medi’iran. The Medi’iran, civil servants to the Okariran granted some administrative authority under the previous government, are rendered obsolete. In their stead, Okariran may appoint a single Tilruir as their deputy if they require substantial assistance to execute their duties to the state. The position of Tilruir may also be used to prepare an underling to replace an Okarir who is keen on resigning their office. Okariran may still employ lower bureaucrats as necessary to maintain the institutions of the state, but these individuals will be considered employed by the government rather than agents of the government itself. Signed, Sohaer, Sulraell Visaj Naeluir, Nelgauth Maehr’tehral Puerir’medi, Acaele Lazul DIARCHY: AH’NIUTIRAN The Diarchy or Ah’niutiran constitutes the highest authority of the Silver State of Haelun’or. The Maheral legitimizes and guides the state as the interpreter of the teachings of Larihei. The Sohaer diligently manages the affairs of state as the administrator of the government. The Maelunir and Annilerir directly serve the Maheral and Sohaer respectively as trusted advisors and surrogates, also helping to manage the relationship between the Ah’niutiran and Heialan. MAHERAL LITERAL TRANSLATION: MOST BLESSED Our traditions are the precious bond between ourselves and our origins, and in the person of the Maheral the teachings of Larihei are preserved. Only the wisest and most blessed among the Mali’thill are ever to hold the office, appointed by the outgoing Maheral or by a council of Malauriran. Though the Maheral is not generally considered a political figure, the Mali’thill trust in their guidance and listen to hear their wisdom, for the Maheral’s domain is in the context of tradition itself. The Maheral is a mediator of internal conflicts and retains the most highly sought after opinion among the Mali’thill as chief chronicler of our history and the physical embodiment of Larihei’s vision. Should the culture and traditions of the Mali’thill come under threat, internal or external, the consultation of the Maheral is always solicited for clarity. Only the Maheral and their predecessors are honoured with the title of Malaurir, and citizens are expected to address them accordingly. [I] Guidance – The Maheral is the metaphysical and cultural guide of the Mali’thill, custodian to the culture, traditions and guiding principles established by Larihei ehya elmaehr’sae hiylun’ehya. It is the duty of the Maheral to study, to interpret, and to teach the philosophy of Larihei whenever necessary with the support of the Maelunir. [II] Counsel – When elheial’thilln is divided or the traditions of the maehr’sae hiylun’ehya are compromised, the Maheral is summoned. It is their duty to help the state reach a resolution that honours the needs of its people and Larihei’s [III] Philosophy – This counsel is required when sought by the Sohaer, by other councilors of state, or when it pertains to the general wellbeing of the Mali hill, but the Maheral may also offer their judgment on civil matters brought forward by a citizen. Should matters of lesser import be brought before the Maheral, it is their right to refer cases to the judgment of the Maelunir. Appeals to the Maheral from the public should pertain to matters of personal advice and civil disagreements, criminal charges should instead be brought before the Okarir’tir or Sohaer. The Maelunir may support the Maheral in mediating conflicts of state and navigating legal quandaries, but they lack the authority to issue resolutions to the Sohaer and Heial’thilln on their own. [IV] Interpretation – The Maheral’s foremost duty is to interpret the cultural imperatives of the Mali’thill in accordance with the teachings of Larihei. The Maelunir may theorise and initiate debate over philosophical nuance, only the Maheral may endorse legislation, works of art, or other media as faithful to Larihei’s teachings. [V] Veto – Any decree or resolution of the Sohaer, Heial’thilln, or Heial’lauriran deemed offensive to the cultural mandates and teachings of Larihei can be vetoed by the Maheral as an absolute and non-negotiable right. The Maheral is expected to offer justification for their exercise of the veto and to provide recommendations for alternative action. Should any matter requiring exercise of the veto imply the moral or mental failing of a sitting councilor, the Maheral may order their dismissal from the Heialan. [VI] Removal of the Sohaer – Should the Sohaer fail to or become incapable of executing the duties of their office according to the traditions and laws of Haelun’or, the Maheral reserves the undisputed right to remove the Sohaer from office if unanimously agreed upon by the council. This right may be exercised in response to corruption, absence, stagnation, incompetence, or criminal behavior. [VII] Succession – It is the duty of the Maheral to select their successor, who is expected to be a Mali’thill citizen of good standing and impeccable record. In the event of the Maheral’s death, disgrace, or extended disappearance, the Maelunir will temporarily assume the duties of the Maheral and a council of Malauriran will be called to elect a permanent successor.

It is the Sohaer who must ratify any terms of peace for the state to consider a conflict resolved. The Maheral, Annilerir, or Heial’thilln (by majority) may object to any such declarations they consider against the interests of the state.

The Silver State of Haelun’or An Offer to The Crown of Haense as delivered the 3rd of the Grand Harvest – 1762 The recent commencement of the ROYAL ACADEMY OF SAINT CATHERINE in the Crown of Haense serves as an unequivocal indication of the esteem your nation bestows upon elmaehr’sae - the development of knowledge - a dogma of Haelun’orian culture and society. Recognising this, I personally impart to you the state’s most sincere applauding on this matter, for such education will only consolidate your nation’s vigilant path to prosperity. In praise of the Crown’s valiant strides to championing elmaehr’sae, the Silver State of Haelun’or graciously offers the Crown of Haense a lecture at the Royal Academy. It is one that shall be competently delivered by a seasoned High Elven scholar from the Eternal College, regarding anthropology. Anthropology comprehends the study of fellow-kind since the origins of the Four Brothers, utilising the importance of written articles, oral stories and conjecture. Offered by the Eternal College of Haelun’or is a collective address to discuss the essence of the elven identity, relative to tradition, philosophies and their racial characters.

  4. Damn, you are really talented, mind sending me your commission info?
  5. Sulraell’s eyes flickered sporadically within their sockets, his long, elongated digits gently clasping around the missive which held the good news. Rays of bright sunlight reflected delicately upon the paper, the opulence of the Citadel towering grandly before his figure as he softly mumbled to himself. ” I a-am glad those spineless green r-rats got the swift ending they truly deserve. May their slippery corpses be burnt and r-removed from the sight of those witness to these cowardly actions. ” The Sohaer stated, stutters tumbling from behind the pale lips which tightly pressed his mouth shut. A shallow breath followed quickly thereafter, the dark violet-gradient garment which covered his posture faintly resounding from the pavement as he straddled towards The Eternal Library ” May t-those naive fools be an example o-of what stupidity brings those who roam Arcasian grounds, may this gift be a good exemplar of the m-magnanimous citizenry within The Silver Walls and may t-this be the beginning of a n-new era, one where ignorance will be punished “
  6. The Silver State of Haelun’or A Magnanimous Deliverance, For Justice as published the 24th of The Grand Harvest – 1761 Spineless Bloodshed, in the eyes of Larihei and the Mali’aheral, is a terrible, reprehensible crime to commit, for it embodies all that opposes civility, sophistication and reason. The attempt to assassination by the Tali’uruk but an Elven day ago is exemplary in demonstrating their barbarism, a self-fulfilling testament to their lack of proper sense. This act was not merely reprobate, but it was also one displaying cowardice - their audacious attempt to slaughter, their foolish attempt to flee. In a seemingly miraculous serendipity, who would have possibly imagined these very ignoramuses would haul themselves to the gates of our blessed silver bastion and bend their knee to justice? In light of this, the beatified sentinels of Haelun’or, the Sillumiran, pursued a swift capture of the fools, detaining them as is fittingly, their iron-clad frames impervious to the feeble assaults of the dark green-gradient rats. As a gesture of unequivocal magnanimity, the Silver State of Haelun’or, in its best interests to preserving peace and curbing conflict, dispatched emissaries to the city of Reza to enlighten our Valah associates of this matter - an apt display of similitude for the efforts of Haense, a fitting reciprocation. An appropriate extradition was performed thereafter, with the malefactors rightfully returned to Reza to meet a proper reckoning, a fitting end to their transgressions. Justice served.

  7. THE FUTURE OF THE MOTHERLAND RISE OF THE EVENING PRIMROSE Written by Sohaer, Sulraell Visaj As published on the 7th, of the Harvest of the Grand Harvest , 1760 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyFhsG8Ip4E&list=PLzOwriNHlKPUmMS4bJG2QQrTC-THbhsAj&index=11 Beauty lies within the delicacy and fragility from which the Evening Primrose lends her name. Her petals seemingly decayed and closed when met by the rays which plummet downwards from the sun. Roses, Dandelions and Orchids stand proudly within the time of day, towering grandly above the pitiful flower. It is but when the sun sets and darkness conquers the night sky and observant eyes closed their eyes that the Evening Primrose shows her true potential, her petals opening, flickering luminous bright colours as other flora rest. Time is an ever-lasting bombardement in which we are all lost, albeit it is only within the convolutions of the storm itself that we can find direction and purpose. We, Mali’thill of Haelun’or will be witness to an avant-garde feat of maehr’sae hiylun’ehya— a manifestation of connection and resilience for the Bastion of Knowledge. Long awaited the Motherland for resolution to turmoil and uncertain idleness. The Heart founded in Lareh’thilln is the same that beats within each persona that resides and flourishes in our grandiose Silver State. Henceforth shall we be no longer mere bystanders, but the ambassadors that prevail in education, progress and health. As Larihei sought, we are responsible for the betterment of our State and to ensure that all members of our pure citizenry aid us in the same progression that settles our superiority above all others. We shall no longer fear the Unknown— instead, we now venture forth, together. I, Sulraell Visaj, son of Elrion Visaj hereby pledge to guide Haelun’or through these naive and ignorant times, filled with lies and deceit, for Lareh’thilln is like the Evening Primrose, and her true prowess is still to be shown. Maehr’sae Hiylun’ehya. Sincerely, ElSohaer, Sulraell Visaj

Eternal Rules and Punishments for Students Punishments are dictated and resolved by the Board of Scholars and the Okarir’maehr.

Voidal Magic practitioners are allowed to do short lecture classes on their craft but are not allowed to literally ‘teach’ the magic to apprentices. VI – Plagiarism - Naeluir follow the same circumstances as Students, and are not allowed to craft lectures + exams without properly crediting their sources. If the source is what they have learned throughout their own studies, it is best to mention such. Okarir’maehr Sulraell Guidance Councelor, Uppori Visaj
  11. Curse of Elarah -=-=(0)=-=- Moist soil met with red fluid as Thoras Elyrion’s throat oozed with blood, his throat lacerated from side to side as he used his blade for a quick, self-inflicted demise. Whispers paraded through the air whilst complete silence covered the canyon like a blanket. The high elf collapsed upon the haunted dirt, the thud of his armour hitting the ground resembling the end of his life like a bass-drum would a prelude... “A single soul is a-all I need, the life of one with p-pure blood flowing through t-their veins” made its way in the elven ears of the group of ‘thill, an eerie feeling resonating within the cursed ruins on which they had set foot. Brave Sillumir fighting alongside Magi and Citizens as friends and relatives subside upon the ground, paralysed. A lifeless child’s body grasped by acquaintances seconds after an apparition, resembling her grandpa, snaps her neck on the spot. Only the act of a single brave Sillumir was needed for the ghost to dissipate. Thoras Elyrion took matters into his own hands, protecting the lives of the citizenry of the Silver State by offering his own. Piercing whispers danced through the ruins a final time before settling. Those that were evaporated in thin air back in sight and those who were paralysed regaining control over their muscles. Everything seemed normal again, yet a penetrating odour wafted from within one of the ruined houses nearby. Uppori Visaj made her way into said house, the sight of a handful of skeletons flickering in her eyes as she fell down a hole in the floor. A jade-coloured vase stood upon a pedestal, a perfect circle of formerly descendants arranged like a ritual site around it. Uppori was startled as she looked down the vase. “Finally” was the phrase flung out of the vase as it shattered into pieces. The curious Mali grabbed a single shard, putting it in her pocket before being pulled back out of the hole. The group slowly make their way back to Lareh’thilln, some carrying bodies, others struggling to balance their own... [OOC] The continuation of the first event reserved for Haelun’or 1st of March - 15:00 EST
  12. The Eternal College – Education Curriculum as published on the 24th of Snow’s Maiden, 1756 Our cranium is but a simple husk, an emptiness to be filled with the knowledge provided by those more experienced than us. An obligatory task for those granted with grand intelligence, a task of unimaginable importance, a task taken up by the Nealuir of The Eternal College. Maehr’sae Hiylun’ehya A phrase most core to our being, elmaehr'sae hiylun'ehya is the eternal philosophy of the pure. Throughout the ages, there have been many different interpretations, yet all share rather similar ideals. In this class, we'd hope to provide education upon what such a philosophy entails, the common interpretations of elmaehr'sae hiylun'ehya, and discuss the further interpretations and thoughts of the class. For progress, and for health. -Alaion Miravaris, Alluin Miravaris Mali’thill Anthropology (Mali’thill turinder) The Mali'thill have forged a legacy, dawning with Larihei's following, discoveries and foundations. Now in an era, enlightened beyond Malin's, the citizenry are equipped with the opportunity to be educated on our originations and the journey of Her people. Provided by the Eternal College, History aims to aid students with our genesis, the role of Mali'thill through their generations and the changes of Her State's renderings. Our lectures provide a deeper understanding of the past with our political and cultural perspectives through time, while solidifying general knowledge concerning our societal development. -Nelgauth Maehr’tehral, Seth Calith Linguistics & Epistemology (Sanir & Yut) Mali'san. Elven speech. With the passing of time, fewer and fewer mali are capable of conversing in what should be their mother tongue, a wound which will not heal without the proper medicine. The Eternal College will serve as the guiding hand which leads Arcas away from the ignorance of war and into a new age marked by the wisdom of peace. -Aerendyl Lor’demar Voidal Studies (Inder’seth) Since the dawn of time, mages have sought to unravel and unveil the mysteries that lie within the timeless, undeniable emptiness of the Voidal plane— an abyss that provides our realm with so much, albeit returning to it just as much. Voidal Studies will focus solely on these topics, garnering extraordinary knowledge of the void and its every known detail. -Adeline Dagre’sae Natural Philosophy (Yut’ame) The physical and abysmal realms are made of giant organisms, some yet to be explored. Natural Philosophy is the systematic study of these aspects which compose natural, physical and astronomical pieces of scientific discoveries— Theoretical studies of the origin and development of our realm and its living organisms through observation and experiment. -Uppori Visaj, Sulraell Fine Arts (Val’thill) Art and architecture are considered synonymous amongst the mali’thill. Best represented through our buildings which are often designed to emphasise beauty above all else. Similarly, architects are more-often referred to as "artists" than anything else. To study Fine Art is to study the creations of our ancestors who inhabited the ancient and original Haelun’or of Asulon. Through this study we ensure that their legacy and vision for Haelun’or is never lost. -Nerithil Valarieth Folklore & Mythology (Antesan & Ullral’inder) The world out the blessed walls of elCihi'thilln is one of much diversity, hosting a multitudinous range of cultures that only a well-read individual, or a seasoned traveller can fathom. The purpose of this course is to provide these benefits in the comforts of the Blessed Silver City, enlightening students of the nature of many of the races and settlements in the land of Arcas. -Muriel Uradir Okarir’maehr, Sulraell Guidance Councelor, Uppori Visaj
  13. The Eternal College – The Ilumiran Order Arcane Fraternity as published on the 13th of the deep cold, 1754 War rages upon Arcas as never before, children murdered and nations collapsing as Larihei watches over our blessed bastion. Threats grow, and so do the armies of our foul enemies. The Silver Hill is to be protected and Larihei alone won’t do our defence justice. Our citizenry upon the silver hill are to be educated in the ways of magic, for they must protect what holds them so dearly. The Eternal College and The Ilumiran Order, under The Silver State of Haelun’or have on this day come together bearing a promising future and have formulated fair terms upon which the foundation of an enduring age of maehr’sae hiylun’ehya. A collaboration which aspires to serve as an example for stability, prosperity and health in a realm so war-ridden.

  14. Custodians of Knowledge The Eternal Library As published on the 2nd of Sun’s Smile, 1754 Time passes and with it does the citizenry of our Blessed Bastion upon the Silver Hill. Larihei has blessed me with the fortunate opportunity to take it upon myself to be the new caretaker of The Eternal College. Miss Uppori has served The Silver State for an impressive amount of time, made countless improvements and raised our college from the ground up. Yet she has decided for herself that a well-deserved break is needed to look at things from a different perspective. Therefore Uppori Visaj has stepped down as Okarir’Maehr and made me her new successor. The sudden leave of a small group of impure-minded Mali and Kharajyr, has left our library at a lack of staff, and due to my sudden change of status I will not be able to pick up all the work needed to protect and uphold the copious amount of books stored in our Bastion of Knowledge. Therefore, The Eternal Library is looking for new staff members to fill the roles of safekeeping, sorting and protecting our most sacred treasures. Protecting our most dear belongings, passed on by generations is an occupation of respect and honour, hence the library will be having interviews and traineeships in order to filter out the incapable. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeEySyUJ0hRijtqgki4O7b_v-SU3HjOVYIMdRwHyvysW1603Q/viewform?usp=sf_link Okarir’maehr, Sulraell
