  3. From the office of the Imperial Chamberlain, I have assumed the position of court Chamberlain on the 6th of Horen’s Calling, 1718. His Imperial Majesty, Godfrey III., has entrusted me with overseeing the management, growth and restoration of the imperial court from the state in which it was left due to the war and the all-too-recent siege of Helena. I solemnly swear to fulfill this responsibility to my utmost capabilities and opportunities. Three short announcements I will make pertaining both the citizenry of the Renatian Empire and the present Imperial court: To the present and prospective Servantry of the Palace, In line with the noble audit of the realm, I will be conducting a parallel, albeit far less serious and grandiose inspection of present employees and residents of the Rubrummagnus. I wish to meet each of you for proper introductions. Those who seek employment in any rudimentary position at the palace may seek me out or pen me a letter and arrange for a meeting at the earliest convenience. To the Ladies of the Court who reside at the palace, I would like to invite you one-by-one to tea and a discussion pertaining the court, your individual personas and backgrounds as well as your ambitions in the Empire. Specifically, there have been multiple requests communicated towards me prior to my appointment related to a debutante ball and the restoration of proper courting traditions. To the Esteemed Nobility of the Realm, Let it be known that I am open to aid you and your courts in various matters, and also gladly co-operate with the esteemed vassal-courts of the Imperium. The Empire is bound together by something more than martial might; a sense of unity which is ought to be reinforced and cemented further in the following years, especially as victory against the rebels draws closer. For any matters related to court, advice, etiquette, host-organisation, or medical aid you may pen me a letter and I will seek to attend to your individual courts as soon as I am able to.

  5. Song o' the Ordermen o' Rudolph ✠ The Holy Order of St. Rudolph ✠ Dated 9th of Sigismund’s End 1714 On the the morning of the 15th of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1713, an meeting was held within the chambers of High Pontiff Pontian II to discuss the growing concerns surrounding the increase of magi, dark beasts and unholy infiltrators into our civilisations. As a result of the meeting the Pontiff approved Archbishop Zachery to investigate a number of demonic sightings with the aid of Haensetic knights. Responding to numerous sightings and leads, Zachery began to put together his report on the concerning subject. There were many demonic creatures amongst mankind, leeching off it and killing its citizens. Eight months later after intensive investigations, interviews and hunts, a report was published by the Archdiocese of Rhodesia in which it found that the demon, Karyssmov, had returned in a settlement called Valis Sollis. Without a militant or Inquisitorial order, the church relied on faithful Canonists to subvert and destroy these demonic creatures, however some were given magical licenses by the Ministry of Magic meaning they could not touch them without being hauled to court. As time went on, rumours and scandals of adultery, fornication and sin began to flood the streets of the capital and various settlements. It seems that sin no longer went punished through various Canonist settlements. There was one such instance where an ex-official of Haelun’or hired brigands to vandalise the Holy See and steal a relic from its cathedral. This relic was taken to Sutica and the church requested Haensetic aid to retrieve it, and retrieve it they did. However as there were no inquisitors to investigate this occurrence, it fell upon Zachery again to which he successfully found the perpetrator. It became apparent in Pontian’s final papal bull, that a Holy Order of some kind was necessary in order to uphold the will of GOD and protect the Canonist realm from the vile beasts and sinners. Sadly whilst the order was still in its infancy, an attempt was made on the life of High Pontiff Everard V by Owynists, citing him as a puppet of the Empire. A lie, of course, but this substantiated the need for a holy order and so Pontian would see it take place. The Code The Code is a set of strict doctrines in which all members of the holy order follow, regardless of sect or rank. ‡ To serve the word of GOD with faith and devotion ‡ ‡ To maintain and defend His word until death ‡ ‡ To embody the virtues of the Exalted and Saints ‡ ‡ To obey without question the word of the Holy Father ‡ ‡ To respect the law of the land in which you tread upon ‡ ‡ To serve the High Pontiff, College of Bishops, and the institutions of the Holy Canonist Church with unwavering loyalty ‡ ‡ To destroy any creature of abomination which practises evil against the society of all Canonists and the Holy Mother Church ‡ The Hierarchy Command High Pontiff His Holiness, the High Pontiff of the Holy Canonist Church exercises supreme authority over the Holy Order of Saint Rudolph, and its entire body of members. Grandmaster An esteemed veteran and scholar of the Canon, the Grandmaster is tasked with supervising the day-to-day operations of the Order. First and foremost amongst Ordermen, his decisions may only be overturned by the High Pontiff. Grand Chaplain Typically a member of the College of Bishops, the Grand Chaplain is an ordained clergyman who oversees the spiritual well-being of the Order, and advises the Grandmaster on matters ecclesiastical in nature. Inquisitorial Branch Grand Inquisitor An accomplished ecclesiastical investigator, the Grand Inquisitor has direct supervisory authority over members of the Inquisitorial Branch, and their activities therein. Inquisitorial Commandant The Grand Inquisitor’s foremost assistant, the Inquisitorial Commandant handles the administrative matters of the Inquisitorial Branch, and supervises sensitive investigations. Inquisitorial Superior Inquisitors who have proven themselves dedicated and capable, Inquisitorial Superiors are given the additional capabilities of managing Inquisitors and Initiates, and leading investigations personally. Inquisitor The rank-and-file of the Inquisitorial Branch, Inquisitors gather evidence, conduct interviews, and generate reports on troublesome entities against the Holy Canonist Church. Initiate Those new to the Order, Initiates assist the members of the Inquisitorial and Militant Branches in their duties. After a trial period of one or two years, Initiates are promoted to either Inquisitor or Man-at-Arms, depending on their preferences and the Order’s needs. Militant Branch Knight-Captain The senior-most Holy Knight of the Order, the Knight Captain is responsible for operation of the entire Militant Branch. Reporting directly to the Grandmaster, the Knight-Captain possesses direct authority over each member of the Branch. Knight-Sergeant A pair of Holy Knights hand-chosen by the Grandmaster, the Knight-Sergeants assist the Knight-Captain in managing the Militant Branch. Holy Knight After years of leal service to the Holy Canonist Church, exceptionable members of the Militant Branch may take the Palatine Oath and a vow of obedience, allowing them to adopt the title of Holy Ser. With this rank comes the responsibility of leading excursions into hostile territory, and maintaining the discipline of the Militant Branch. Sergeant-at-Arms Experienced veterans of the Order will eventually find themselves in the supervisory position of Sergeant-at-Arms. In addition to providing mentorship and discipline to lower-ranked members, Sergeant-at-Arms are able to lead patrols in the absence of any Holy Knights. Master-at-Arms Several years as a Man-at-Arms qualifies some members of the Order to serve as Master-at-Arms. Taking on additional responsibilities for the Order, Masters-at-Arms are expected to provide specialized services such as logistics supervision, agricultural management, or medical assistance. Man-at-Arms The Militant Branch’s base rank, Men-at-Arms are expected to serve the Order dutifully during training, patrols, raids, and other excursions on Order business. Initiate Those new to the Order, Initiates assist the members of the Inquisitorial and Militant Branches in their duties. After a trial period of one or two years, Initiates are promoted to either Inquisitor or Man-at-Arms, depending on their preferences and the Order’s needs. The Sects The Inquisitors The Inquisitors are a sect of the Order of St. Rudolph, they make up a portion of the orders men. The Inquisitors are tasked with investigating unnatural occurrences in the Canonist realm and potential threats that come from outside of it. The Inquisitors are known for rooting out heresy and sinners from our society. Though often they set aside their inquisitorial duties to assist the militant in their endeavors. The Militant The faith Militants are the other sect within the holy order, they make up the bulk of the orders forces. Their purpose and goal are pretty straight forward. The faith militant are in charge of the clergy's protection, there have recently been numerous assassination attempts on clergymen and even the Pontiff. They often assist the Inquisitors when called upon in order to detain dangerous individuals or against heretical nations. They must also protect the canonist realm from unholy invaders, no matter the provocation that started the conflict between the Canonist nations and the unholy ones. Joining In order to join the Order of St. Ruoldph you must be a canonist and well versed in the holy scrolls teachings. You must be loyal to GOD and only to him for this is a lifelong commitment, your only resignation is death. If you wish to join this holy order and fight for the church, fill in an application below.

  7. EPISCOPAL EXHORTATION: A MASS OF BLOOD A missa est sanguis Addressed to the Faithful of Arcas MDCCXVII Valliant Canonists, Remember dear children that Horen’s kin are the rightful heirs to all authority on this Terra. All worldly praise be onto Horen’s descendants. With such worldly might comes equal duty- both to GOD and Humankind. As such, the task of leadership has always been the burden of the purest of Horen’s line. However, in this age our Father is greatly displeased by the actions of His Chosen, the sons of Horen. In their desire for unfruitful internationalism they have defied Him in bringing division to Man. This division is the antithesis of the Divine Plan and the work of the Defiler since the very beginning. Therefore, in an effort to bring Divine Favor to the Chosen kin of Horen, with arms outstretched in supplication to Almighty GOD let us offer now a fervent and able presanctified sacrifice to Him. Let us offer our claimed purest Horen. Indeed it is unfortunate that he must die. However, the goodness that is within our hearts and minds for ages to come as Children of Horen must be kept safe from warring deceivers in league with Iblees. I offer up a charge to all able bodied Canonists to execute, with great reverence, one Godfrey Pertinaxi [III] who descends from Horen. A Prayer of Sacrifice Almighty GOD accept this bloody sacrifice of Chosen stock. May his blood unlike his deeds be pure enough to expel the wickedness he foisted upon mankind. We pray for pity Lord but in Thy Justice, if it be Your will, cast him down into the outer darkness of the Void. LORD, do we ever so sincerely pray: spare the innocent - mothers, children, and GOD-fearing men through this act of reparation so that one may die for a multitude to live. ☩ Bishop Emeritus Abraham (ret.)

  11. THE LIFE OF A BOTTLE; MISSIVE TO RENATUS To most of the citizens of Renatus, but not all of you because some of you are ******* pricks. His Imperial Majesty Joseph I, writes once more to the people of Renatus probably, I cant say for certain since im dictating this letter and I aint even told him. Where do I start, ive been PERSONALLY taking in thousands of Renatian refugees into my home, these poor common folk of the Kingdom of Renatus, fleeing from the self proclaimed Emperor Remus ‘Ruh Roh’ Partysnax. The more refugees that come, the more stories I hear of the madness running rampant in the streets of Helena! Soldiers just taking women when they want, blood in the streets, food shortages! It is to those still suffering under the heel of Renatians, I offer you an olive branch but mine is bigger and better, come to me, Bottle Wick, I shall feed and cloth you, keep you safe from the raving dogs! To those that choose to stay in Helena, the only land Renatus holds, I mourn your loss, Remus doesn't value you but that makes sense since he is just a kid or something but also has a child bride that no priest officiated any sort of wedding and I think we got rules against that sorta stuff. In his Imperial Majesty Joseph I’s Empire, everyone is treated fairly and equally, something Renatus cannot boast. Something something Renatians are bad and will torture you for no good reason uh, I known alot of them for some two decades now, I served in the legion for one decade so I seent alot of the decline you dig. I guess you could say I am the MOST knowledgeable person ever on the topic, cant prove me wrong hahah. In closing, I Bottle Wick of the House Wick of the line of Wick of the ancestry of Wick of the lineage of Wick of the clan of Wick from the Wick tribe give permission for Godfrey aka Remus ‘Bedwetter’ Pettytax to surrender all lands and titles to the good and just Joseph I of Marna, I BOTTLE WICK, am allowing for you Remus, to give up and I dont do that for just anyone, you're welcome.

  14. AND TO THE MIRE, HE RETURNS ___________________________________ [!] A depiction of Kaer Glythen, the Aeldinic seat of House Grimm The war between the feuding Imperial Houses of Horen and Marna has claimed many lives as of recent, and families all throughout the two imperiums now grieved for lost sons and daughters - taken all too soon in the conflict. One such family is the noble House of Grimm, its members having learned of its patriarch’s death in the most horrible of ways; The Baron’s corpse was shipped to the stone-maken walls of Reza, confined to a wooden box devoid of any means to initially identify him. Eventually, however, upon reaching hold of Lady Grimm, authorities were able to properly identify the bloodied husk as her spouse - a man who had so chivalrously lived past his prime. As the family grieved together and sorted through the late patriarch’s belongings, a piece of parchment was found. On the paper lay dozens of crossed out lines of text, all discarded before the middle of the page. In there, a handful of lines remained, writing comparable to chicken scratch, though legible nonetheless. I remember my arrival upon Atlas hazily, though some memories do not escape me. The overwhelming fear of leaving my parents, and my eldest siblings, on their lonesome in Venerra. Thankfully, I had my sister Alana by my side throughout the voyage. Tempests raged about us as we ventured further into the murky waters, our vessel soon being consumed by a grey mist -- restricting our vision for a good while. In the days following, we could make out a jagged mountain ahead; Overjoyed, Alana and I leaped into the frigid waters and gradually arrived to Haeseni shores. As we made our way into the confines of Markev, we were greeted by our cousins, Emma Ludovar and her younger sibling, Jacob. My sister took the path of Chamberlain; I, on the other hand, pursued the path my father had always desired for me - knighthood. And so life went on for me: I had four beauteous children and a supportive consort. Alas, I write this for I have spent fifty-some years alive - Death encroaches, and rapidly at that. Should you find this and I’m deceased, my sole request is to be returned to my grand-nephew, William I of Venerra, where I am to be laid in our family crypts with my father Elias, my mother Selina, and my siblings.

DENUNCIATION OF VES IN FAVOR OF THE TRUE IMPERIUM; IMPERIUM RENATUM Issued and confirmed by His Most Serene Elected Highness, Demetrio Cicero d’Montelliano y Kavietsby, First Patrician of Ves and First Prince Mayor of Ves For many years, my house and people, respectively the Illatians and the House of Montelliano have faithfully served Adria and and its people to its betterment. My brother, Sigismondo, and I found ourselves in Adria, A weak state during the waning years of Atlas, though after serving Adria during the Gentlemen’s War, the Montellianos were in good standing with His Grace, Paul I of Adria and the People of Adria and great Ves. This led to my election to the mayoral throne, after I dethroned the previous one, then soon later I was made First Patrician of Ves by His Grace, Paul I of Adria. Under my good leadership Ves prospered, it grew into a great city, a city that the entire world desired. But such alas was not to last, and I suppose I had a hand in such, the Emperor Antonius I declared martial law upon Ves, so His Grace abdicated and I cast my vote for His Majesty, Marius II of Haense. Such was my undoing! A disgrace Marius was, he burnt his kin, my city I worked upon day and night! My blood, my sweat, my tears. Now Marius supports this false Emperor José de Marna as does the traitor Alfredo de Myre. For this I can no longer stand still, I must act for the good of Ves and the Adrian peoples as well as my own Illatians. This has led me to this decision, from this day henceforth my loyalty and my house’s loyalty lies with the Emperor Godfrey III of House Horen and his domains, he shall have my eternal loyalty, as did His Imperial Majesty, Antonius I. His Imperial Majesty also has use of my claim to the City of Ves, a claim stronger then the False Prince’s claim. His Most Serene Elected Highness, Demetrio Cicero d’Montelliano y Kavietsby, First Patrician of Ves and First Prince Mayor of Ves
  16. Renatus are bad guys and we do not like them. Also a Declaration of Fealty! Issued and Confirmed by Bottle, 11th of Sun’s Smile, 1715 House Wick has been around for genuine centuries, that makes it better then most people, prove me wrong. For ages untold the Wicks have totally actually served Renatus as the best and most loyal soldiers ever, prove me wrong. But the charade has gone on too long, The last several Emperors have been at the head of a steadily declining civilization, letting depravity and loose morals run rampant in its lands. The Lords of Renatus have seen fit to slaughter their own, sack the cities of loyal vassals and have the gall to be offended when the victims finally decide enough is enough. I, as the Grand Wick, Leader of the clan Wick of the ancestry of Wick of the line of Wick of the lineage of Wick of the Wick bloodline must thus throw off the chains of Renatian oppression, being the personal victim of its savagery, We of the family of WICK Denounce Renatus and the Pertinaxi pretender that squats on the throne like a toad over looking its stinking pond. With this cutting away from the plagued body that is Renatus, They TOTALLY lose the best warrior ever and thus – 10 moral for the Renatian side. It is thus that the ancient and POWERFUL House Wick swears itself wholly and inextricably to the true Emperor Joseph I of Marna, a just and righteous man. His Imperial Majesty Joseph I of Marna has shown himself to be a better man, a man to strive to emulate, one who will ensure every man and woman of the Empire are treated equally and fairly, everyone earning a right to trial, something Renatus cannot assure. It was nearly one Saint Week ago that I Bottle, was kidnapped and tortured by Renatian forces for the crimes of : Ensuring an Owynist received a fair trial instead of being murdered outright, and defending myself from Norlander assailants. In Joseph’s Empire such a crime could never occur for justice and honor will always prevail! Declaration of Fealty WE, House Merentel, House Bolivar, and House Keint HOUSE WICK declare ourselves loyal to Joseph I of House Horen the true Sovereign of Humanity, descended from GOD itself. Also, we encourage other curonian EVERYBODY to do the same before it’s too late, or they shall meet Death as it’s the only fate possible for traitors. Signed: His Lord Bottle Wick of the Wickwood , Prince of Vandoria and the Westerlands, Rightful Heir to the Embermoore , Protectorate of the Northern Wick Castle , Duke of Dust, Licker of Boots , Herald of Hermits, and Defender of all that is Wick
  17. DENOUNCEMENT OF THE CURONIAN THRONE AND DECLARATION OF FEALTY Issued and Confirmed by Lord Alexander II Merentel, Lord Arno Bolivar and Nicholas Keint, 11th of Sun’s Smile, 1715 _________________________________________________ For decades, the noble houses of Curonia have stood by faithfully to the crowned House of Devereux. However, in these dark times the young King Edgar Devereux and on his behalf the Lord Regent Ecbert, have seen it fit to betray his liege lord of House Horen, and the curonian people for his own satisfaction. We, as Lords of the Realm, stand together to denounce the King and his actions towards the curonian people and to declare our fealty to His Imperial Majesty Godfrey III of House Horen. As such, we do not longer recognize House Devereux or the Curonian Throne as the liege lord of House Merentel, House Keint, and House Bolivar. We see King Edgar “The Usurper” Devereux as falsely sitting on the Curonian Throne and encourage the innocent citizens of Curonia to follow our stead. The rest of this document is to share our disapprovals of not only the Curonian Throne but also of the false and treacherous “Holy Orenian Empire”. __________________________________ The Devereux’s Betrayal WE STATE that Ecbert Devereux illegitimately usurped the Curonian Throne from Jarrack Devereux in the name of Edgar Devereux just before the false “Joseph I of Marna” was declared “Holy Orenian Emperor”. It was obvious from start that King Edgar and his regent Lord Ecbert only cared about getting power and creating their own legacies instead of fulfilling their duties as the leaders of the Administration of Curon. Since Ser Wilhelm Devereux and his brother Edward reformed the Duchy of Curon on bear mountain where the city of Cyrilsburg once stood, it was always their intent to put the people first. However, Edgar and Ecbert have not shown to have this same ideology betraying the Imperial Throne for a Pretender. Even though the True Emperor Godfrey III is their kin, as he is son to Anabel Devereux and Romulus Horen. When the old Ser Wilhelm Devereux, a man who ruled Curon for years in two different continents and who always cared about the curonian people, confronted them they accused him of being a traitor, destroying the old man’s morale, and after years of war and defense of the realm, they made Ser Wilhelm end up taking his own life in the City of Avalain. The founder of our beloved Kingdom of Curonia dead because the current Curonian Crown broke his oath to the Empire, a man who would have given his life for Curon dead because of betrayal. That’s why WE ACCUSE the current Curonian Crown of inducting the suicide of Ser Wilhelm, whilst not attending the curonian people needs, and backing a pretender with no legitimacy, putting the curonian people in disarray. __________________________________________ Lying to the Curonian People Joseph I “The Pretender” of Marna has claimed to be the true Horen to lead humanity, being proclaimed by a false and treacherous High Pontiff who only desires to be given political power. And yet he decides to reclaim the title of Emperor of the Holy Orenian Empire, the one that was destroyed many years ago. Though he has rallied much of the curonian realm to his side, he still has to proof to be able to beat the Imperium Renatum and its Imperial Legion. Also, WE ACCUSE the current Curonian Crown of lying to the curonian people, as the King of Curon and his Regent promised to the people of the realm that Curon would be independent and a free Kingdom, but as we’ve recently seen the Kingdom of Curonia has been forced to vassalize under Marna (Holy Orenian Empire), and being obligated to give them the King of Curon as a hostage. A total shame, that indicates that the current King and the Lord Regent Ecbert Devereux are only Puppets of the false pretender. __________________________________________ DECLARATION OF FEALTY WE, House Merentel, House Bolivar, and House Keint declare ourselves loyal to GODFREY III OF HOUSE HOREN, the true Sovereign of Humanity, descended from GOD itself. Also, we encourage other curonian nobles to do the same before it’s too late, or they shall meet Death as it’s the only fate possible for traitors. Ave Godfrey III of House Horen HIS LORDSHIP, Alexander II Merentel, Patriarch of House Merentel and Baron of Hallowfell HIS LORDSHIP, Arno Bolivar, Patriarch of House Bolivar, Count of Fuerte and Baron of Centinela HIS EXCELLENCY, Nicholas Keint, Patriarch of House Keint and Captain of the Royal Curonian Army *Two ripped up Letters are pinned at the bottom of the Declaration*

  21. THE BORANS A people who wanders and sets camps all across the world. These are a people that grounds their beliefs within the teachings of peace, quiet and spirituality. However, due to this belief in peace, they tend to lack in millitary power. Infact that is one of the few reasons why the Borans doesn’t have many tribes anymore within Arcas. Another reason why many tribes have died is due to when they move around, they tend to sometimes anger people (though that always depend on the very people). This can create raids and other sorts of harrasments and oppressions. Their religion is based on praying to their ancestors, who the Borans view as gods and demi-gods. They also believe in dead people, like spirits, ghosts and the like. Infact, most of their folk lore is about these strange, spectral beings. The Borans’ tendencies to travel may bring them all around the world, as they camp in forests, mountians, plains, highlands and even deserts and jungles. Borans tend to have a strangely exotic, yet Highlandish appearance about them. This is because that the people are humans with the majority being Highlandish blood, while the minority of blood is Farfolk. A common trait among them are their eyes, ranging from dark brown to Amber. They also tend to have green eyes, though it’s more rare than say brown. Their hair is mostly dark to light brown, but is occationaly black. Their skin is usualy guite fair due to how they mostly camped in forests rather than in deserts or other hot climates. However, there still are the occational man or woman with darker skin. There are certain genes that the Borans have picked up. One of these is the higher chance of having freckles, even to adult hood. While it becomes increasingly difficult to pinpoint to where the culture and religion began, mostly because of the culture becoming older and having lost most information of its origins in the meanwhile. It is said, however, that it all began as a cult in Anthos that believed that their ancestors where the true guardians and god’s of their people. With this new cult, they began practicing prayer and meditation to these new deities, and soon they began their typical behavior of traveling and constantly moving camps from one part of the world to the other. While thet know that wandering to different continents may get them killed (as many other races might be at the same time), they always seems to have survived most of it due to how faithful some of them are in their leaders and Shamans. However, sadly most of the tribes from Anthos have been whiped out, with only a few remaining. One of these tribes are called “In’Kahir”, who pray to the the Second son of Karoh’Tan, Eaok’Foer. THE BORAN LANGUAGE Originating as a secret language that the cult used in order to avoid other religious cults and clans from exterminating them. The language the Borans speak now is an evolved, more perfected language of such, having developed over 400 years. The language has become more commonly known to others as ‘Boran’. However, just because this language exists, doesn’t mean that the Boratic people aren’t allowed to speak common. Boran is spoken in the same grammatic structure as common, with a couple of few exceptions that makes the language a bit more unique. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ [WORD] = [Translation, Informal, Variation] Good day / Hello = Gorath , Gora’ / Go’ (if very informal) Good bye / Farewell = Goteth , Teth (te’ if very informal) I, me = Moh My, mine = Mohr (Note that when explaining if it’s someone’s or something’s, you add an ‘r’ at the end of said word) You = Toh Your = Tohr We, us, our = Vehr (Note: This is an exception to the ‘r’ rule) They, their = Duhr Yes = Je , – , Jevihr (used as “affirmative”) No = Ne , – , Nevohr (used as “negatory”) Maybe = Ere , – , Erih (used as “perhaps”) Is, am, are = Aeh Was, were = Tyot (also used as “used to” or “was / were”, but you add an ‘r’ at the end) Has = Aehr Will, shall = Niaro (add an ‘r’ at the end when in plural) Would = Amden (add an ‘r’ when in plural) Could = Yrih (add an ‘r’ when in plural, like always) (Note: Do not forget the ‘r’ when it’s in plural!)

Their tribes are built on a common leader, shaman, and then in the later and younger tribes; guardians. All tribes has a leader, also called a Cheiftain, someone who leads the people, takes on grand desicitions and other great burdens. However, the leaders are chosen by the tribe’s shaman, also called a “Voroodou”. The Shaman is the second highest ranking one can get, as they lead the people in a spiritual sence, giving them hope and in most cases cure their wounds with apothecary methods (such as bandaging wounds, using roots and herbs to help with deseases etc). Lastly of the highest three comes the Guardians, known as Shan’kir. They are the sworn guardians, chosen by the Cheiftain and the Voroodou to protect their tribe from outside forces, like animals and other people. Below these achived and powerful men and women are the tribesmen, women and children. All picking up a profession a dozen of years after birth, they have no special rank, but are usualy treated well by the higher ranks. These tend to be fishermen, gatherers, farmers, traders, blacksmiths, tanners and tailors. While this people does use Minae to buy and sell outside of their tribes, within their tribes they tend to trade more than buying or selling. This is because they, like their higher-ups believe that one needs to be humble in order to be cared for. This leads to that when someone begins to act cocky, superior or the like, they tend to be scorned at. A way the voroodou tends to fix this is by teaching them lessons. Say, if a lower class fisherman claims that he can catch a big fish within a month, the voroodou tends to demand proof, or perhaps play a riddle or two on him. It all depends on who the voroodou is. Genders are equal in this society. Women can become a cheiftainess if they are ellected to be one by the head Voroodou. However, when a women gets accepted as a voroodou, she tends to be treated like a nun from Canonism, and can have a hard time rising in rank because of it. Men can have the same problem, being treated like servants and stewards at times rather than being acolytes of a voroodou. However, it is a sad truth that men have an easier time to rise in rank. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Festives, Cerimonies and the very Religion As stated previously, the Borans have Shamans. These shamans practice a religion called Karoh’r Lina, which means Karoh’s Teachings. The religion is about praying to their all-mighty ancestors, who had always been known for something great, like deeds. The shamans are ellected by their current head shaman in each tribe. During the ellection, they must go through certain tasks, questions and the like. Only one or two men or women can be chosen. Upon acceptance, the Voroodou chooses a new nickname for his one to two new acolytes. Usualy an animal, mythical beast or even sometimes names of their ancestors. The reason for this is unknown to the general public. After the cerimony, the whole tribe tends to feast with their newly made acolytes of the head voroodou. Music, meat, bread, cheese and all sorts of foods is presented, icluding some of their personal delicacies, such as; Anikr, which is a well roasted onion with herbs and spices that makes it taste better, alongside some mutton and carrots. Another cerimony is the one where the head voroodou chooses a son from each lower ranking family (sometimes the guardian’s or the Cheiftan’s family) and have them prove their physical might usualy in a non-lethal way. They have one to four of these winners, the head shaman waits for it to become night, preparing dyes and the like for the warriors. Upon dusk, the voroodou begins to alight a huge bon fire as they walk up to an altar and begin chanting a chant to the demi-god-like grandson of battle. When the chant is done, the shaman will then choose a dye for each new Guardian. Then, the winner can choose to accept their fate as a guarding, dropping their current profession if they choose to be one. As they do, the shaman begins to chant as he begins to paint special tatoo’s on the man’s torso, arms and face. These tatoos shall mean something to them, as they pick up their weapon of choice and begin training the next day by the current head guardian. THE ANCESTORS The very basic of their religion. The ancestral family that the Borans believe in so dearly. Viewed as all-mighty, god-like beings that have achived great power and immortality within the stars that litter the sky. THE FATHER – Karoh’tan, created the people with his own hands and led the first tribe. He is also known as the Flaming Father, due to his abilities of summoning fire with his bare hands. THE MOTHER – Lillenea. She was able to love even her most evil grandchildren. Also known as the Mother of Love. THE FIRST SON – Eaok’foer, he was the one who was said to be able to control the weather to a certain extent. Also known as the Father of Storms. THE SECOND SON – Iok’Tahlir, the one who showed the people how to be loyal, humble and caring for eachother. Also known as the Father of Loyalty. THE DAUGHTER – Ynieri, known to be the best dancer, singer and entertainer. Also known as the Mother of Fun. While there are more children of these later four sons and daughter, they are concidered demi-gods amongst them. Stories and tales of this family can be told by the shamans. Either a story about a fight, maybe a prank from one of Ynieri’s children. Most tribes are known to pray to a specific ancestor. This is because that specific tribe strives for a specific goal. However, they aren’t bound in any way to pray to the main god. However, one tribe in the past was known to have forced its tribesmen to pray to a specific, evil ancestor by force. This can sometimes happen when the cheiftan gets corrupt or perhaps gets the Shaman corrupt. However, there has been few that actually did fall for this tragedy. ACCEPTANCE OF MAGIC While magic is generaly accepted in the culture, depending on the tribe, the head Shaman must have approved it and must monitor it. This is because one of the grandchildren of Eaok’foer was “Mysr’I”, the Mother of Magic. She was known to have become corrupted by the very own magic she had created. Due to this, the Karoh’tan asks of all the Shamans to watch the mage within the village grow and halt it if he or she is near corruption from it. Dark magic is NOT accepted within the culture and religion, however. It is rare for the Shaman or leader to practice magic, but the acolytes have been known to be wanting to and in some cases, they have indeed. Some tribes all together banishes it, while some incourages it. It really depends on the leader of it. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ CLOTHING While it of course also depends on the climate they have settled in, the Borans also have a sence of clothes and fashion that makes them unique. While none of these clothing has a meaning or specific religious meaning (unless it’s the Shaman’s clothing), it certantly is important to know what they find good-looking at appropriate. Do remember that this also changes to what tribe it is, but all tribes follow a similar pattern. GENERAL: It’s very typical of all Borans to wear something like a cloak, mantle or something that goes ontop and around the upper torso. Clothes in general are also made out of linen, hide and fur, usually not too saturized in color. Their boots usualy range from leather shoes to furry boots. It’s common for women and children to wear sandals instead. Jewelry is rare to see because of that being humble is a socialy deprived thing, but when you do, it’s usually things like amuletes made out of wood and strung on a string, or maybe bronze jewels with stones like granite ingraved into them. MEN: While in general the only thing that a man would wear is a mantle, since they believe that showing off muscles is manly, they can still have on a thin, sleeve-less shirt that is usualy made of linen. They usualy wear propper, long pants aswell, though short ones aren’t uncommon either. WOMEN: Most women would wear a thin dress or skirt, made out of linen or hide. If not, they would be wearing a mantle with a concealing top and a skirt. A common fashion trend is to wear a crown of flowers, straw or maybe even just plain grass. There’s also a type of clothing called a wrist-cloth. Women tend to wear this around their wrists to look propper. CHILDREN: While they do wear what the adults do of their gender, the children tend to wear sandals, sleeved tunics or maybe even a crown if they wanna extra pretty (note that boys tend to do this too). ARMOUR While armour isn’t something that one would normaly wear, as mostly it’s used in cerimonies, their armour tend to be tanned leather Muscle Cuirass, hoods with a wooden mask of sorts and leather greaves. The richer or higher ranked men and women tends to have the same set up, but instead in bronze, such as a tanned leather Muscle Cuirass with a bronze overlay, hoods with a bronze mask (usualy well decorated), leather arm guards with bronze plates and then tanned leather greaves with bronze overlay. When it comes to shields, they tend to have an oval shaped would with a strap on AND a center grip. This is to make it as versatile as one can. The thickness, broad and height varies. WEAPONS Most tribesmen and tribeswomen tends to have a mere flint knife as their protection. However, if they happen to have a weapon of sorts, it’d most likely be; a spear (commonly known as Pokih in Boran) or a short, flat hunting bow (Lyu’or). When it comes to the bow’s ammunition, if they’re just hunting they have simple arrows with an oak haft, feathers of any common bird and a flint tip. If made for war, it’s a bronze leaf tip, oak haft and then a bit more high quality feathers. Swords do exist in the Boratic Culture, it’s just that it’s rare to see it. But if you do, it’s usually a leaf-bladed, guardless shortsword. Quarterstaffs can be seen alongside with Guardians aswell, sometimes with a bronze reinforcement at each end of the staff. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Architecture Commoner / Tribesmen As the tribes travel, they tend to set up camps. Therefore, they use tents because of how quickly and efficently one can set them up. A typical way for them to set them up is by a cliff-side, digging slightly into it as they set the tent up by it and having an opening in the upper tent for campfires, so that there’s a nice fire without it being more-than-enough dangerous. Sometimes, they decide to live in caves instead, doing so by placing down hide mats to soften the ground. Yet again, there’s also a campfire to be seen. ((Please remember that these are just showcases of the typical. Variations of blocks are a thing among different tribes.)) Rare Exceptions There are times when a tribe decides to settle down “Permanently”. These extremly rare occations come with interesting design of houses and sometimes even market places. OOC NOTE Let me know if you guys ever want more soon! It was really fun to introduce this new culture to the public. If you want to know any more specific things, I can either edit and add it in, or you can PM me the questions. Have a great day y’all!!

  24. THE AGE OF ELVES; A FALTERED PRINCE   Our enemies mournfully proclaim an ‘The Age of Elves’ as if intimidating in its nature; a claim made all the more hysterical after the self-made inferno that rampaged throughout their city. An act of nothing but true cowardice, before we have even sullied forth the banners of Our Alliance the enemy has set their city ablaze and scurried to the corners of this world. They hope to leave our claim on Alderyn to be a claim on the ashes. We shall not be so easily undone, however, and Our justice shall spring forth all the more forcefully for this attempt. We shall march on the lands of Alderyn, honouring Our alliances and pacts made in the sight of the Lord, and reclaim the ashes of a wasteful people to build and renew. We shall not leave the remnants of a once proud race to starve for Our fight is not with their race but instead with the craven, dishonourable leadership which shall be replaced. We shall aid our allies to build a new nation. And, as if this inferno was a trumpet sounding before the marching boots of Our armies, let it be stated simply - this is a warning to the others of the EU. Twice now have the cities of traitors burned - once in punishment and once simply in fear at the coming of Our justice. If the members of the EU desire to come and entreaty us for peace, as has always been offered, they shall be granted fair terms. We do not wish for a war, but have been forced into one by the machinations of nations aiding the Fennic enemy; let this event ring out as warning. It is to our great shame that the Orcish peoples have enjoined themselves with this coalition, for we have no quarrel with them. We know well that the Orcs do not fear a fight and are honourable warriors - and for this reason do not fear meeting them on the battle - yet they have allied themselves with a folk who prove by the extremity of their action their dishonour and refusal to fight. The Orcish folk are an honourable one, and we know that they are no part of an Elven Union - to them the hand of friendship shall always be open. This is no ‘Age of Elves’, and never shall it be so. This land was a chance for peace to reign supreme - for it to be an age of nothing but tranquility - and yet the dreams of such have been smashed again by the ambition of the Fennic people. There is still the chance for peace to return and for serenity to rest upon this age, provided the EU abide by merely two fair demands made by the signatories of the ‘Desolation Pact’: the first is that they disband the aggressive EU to prove their peaceful intent, and the second is that they return the lands where Alderyn once towered to its rightful leader without the need for greater bloodshed. But once more, another head of this “EU” falters, Avurak Syllar, Prince of the Vira’ker has perished to the blades of Our Knights once more -- his head flauntered around the Capital of Helena and his crimson ichor staining the stands of the guillotine. As stated prior, the rest shall follow.
  25. THE REIGN OF ANTONIUS 6th of Horen’s Calling, 1709 “I regret that I only have one life to give to my Empire.” The Empire of Man holds vast territory, with many diverse peoples owing fealty to His Divine Imperial Majesty, the Emperor of Man, Antonius I Horen. Throughout the years, many lords and ladies have sworn to the Horen scion, adding their armies to the Imperial horde, and finding peace through service. These various folks together comprise the Imperial nation – from Adria to Haense, they collectively form the heartland of humanity. Law and logic assert these men and women as subjects of the Imperial Crown. They, therefore, quite naturally, assist one another. The Imperial armies defend her people; her people, in turn, offer tax and levy to the Crown. It is a trade off – a feudal hierarchy. Some of the Imperial vassals themselves have vassals. Just as the leaders of the more powerful fiefdoms were awarded land and office by the Emperor, so to do they offer land and office to subservient lords and ladies. It is clear that those enfeoffed with land and titulage owed service to the crown, and would be expected to maintain justice, law, and order in their lands. In exchange for privilege and esteem, they are required to rally a levy, pay taxes, et cetera. Imperial vassals are expected to do as follows. Rally as a singular entity, calling forth all their levy and banners. Allow the Crown to negotiate foreign policy. Maintain law and order in their subject territories. Negotiate and pay taxes to the Emperor. Uphold the lawful orders of the Crown always. Uphold and carry out the demands of the Emperor. The following landed feudal vassals that encompass the realm must pen their signature, pledging their service to His Imperial Majesty and to withhold the responsibilities of being under Our Empire. IMPERIAL CROWNLANDS: His Imperial Majesty, Antonius Horen. [3andD] @3andD His Lordship, Charles-Edmond Talraen.
