  2. 12th of Sun’s Smile, SA 59 (Jan. 16th. 2022) ᚾᚨᚱᚺ-ᛞᚨ-ᚾᚨᚴᚺᚢᛗ'ᚢᚱ-ᛞᚨ-ᛟᚱᚡᚢᛚ-ᚾᚨᚴᚺᛁᛗᛁᚱᚨᛉ IN ANSWER TO YAVOK’S FOLK ᚡᛖᛚᛖᚱᚨᚴ-ᛟᛉ-ᛞᚨ-ᛟᚾᛟᚱ'ᚴᚨᛞᚱᛖᛚ'ᚾᚨᚱᚺᛖ Two centuries ago, an age of continued dwarven rule was disrupted by the chaos of the War of the Beards, which brought the forces of the Brathmordakin to their weakest. After the fall of many city states which had risen in the power vacuum, one would stand triumphant and reclaim the honor of old Urguan: Agnarum. Ever since the reunification of the dwarves, it has been a steady crawl back to our former glory. For decades, it was always a fight for our very unified existence. Now here in Almaris, we stand together as a Kingdom truly deserving of the title “Grand.” Our prosperity has reached great heights, with a booming Workforce composed of many successful guilds and rich workers. The forges incessantly burn with the fire of industry and our anvils never cooled by inaction. Even without the blessings of the runes, the dwarves have forged great works that our predecessors would marvel at. The great throngs of Urguan are at their mightiest, full of not only dwarves, but also mighty men who live with us in the valleys and meadows of the mountains. We have forged strong bonds, and shall forge them stronger yet in the years to come, encouraging our vassals to grow and our mountains to stand taller with towers and turrets, so that no enemy shall ever wrong our folk. We shall cooperate further with our allies, and ensure that our pacts shall last centuries longer in shared peace and prosperity. Our empire is vast, rivaling that of many great kingdoms of man, and allied with the greatest among them. We have come much farther than the humbled dwarves hiding away in the caverns of Atlas alone could have ever imagined. No doubt, we are at the beginning of a Golden Age. For some however, this unrivaled age of prosperity was not enough. There are those who are unable, or perhaps just unwilling, to share the glory with their kin but demand a greater place amongst their brothers. The Intimidations of Clan Ireheart After the height of Urguan and Haense’s victory in the siege against Southbridge, Clan Ireheart decided to test their fame and sought a meeting with the Lordship of Du Loc. Here they asked the settlement to become a vassal to their clan, especially after their aid against a beast which had attacked the Lordship. This was perceived as an insult and a threat, causing Du Loc to then accuse the dwarves on the world stage of conquest. A miscommunication free of guilt on either side, certainly. Ulfric Frostbeard, desiring peace with the long time neutral neighbors of Urguan, went with some of his councilors to Du Loc and resolved the issue, not once admitting that the Irehearts had intended to threaten Du Loc nor ceding ground to the humans, only to guarantee the Leaders of Du Loc knew there was no need to call for aid, as there would not be a fight. Ulfric completed his duty as Grand King to protect the Grand Kingdom of Urguan and its honor. To ensure that we would not make war with good folk and dispel rumors, and did so using diplomacy, not the ax. In return, Clan Ireheart - who began this conflict by meeting without the King and the Kingdom in an attempt to gain power over Du Loc for themselves, thus jeopardizing the entirety of Urguan during a time of war, for the pride of their clan - declared Ulfric Frostbeard a traitor to the Kingdom. Clan Ireheart then demanded that Ulfric Frostbeard submit to their terms and challenged the Grand King to an honor duel within their Clan Hall when he refused, with their full folk rallied along with mercenaries present. When Ulfric denied both their demands and their challenge, and attempted to leave peacefully, Clan Ireheart proceeded to chase after the Grand King, weapons in hand, driving him from the city and down the road, before driving him into the dirt and surrounding him. Once again, they tried to pressure the Grand King into an honor duel, and were once again refused. Only then did they let him leave in peace. This is nothing short of intimidation of the Grand King, attempting to force him into a duel so that Clan Ireheart could beat him into submission. There is no question of honor, for no honor had been insulted. The Grand King upheld his duty, yet despite Ulfric’s ever open ears, Bakir Ireheart, Ulfric Frostbeard's own and trusted King’s Hand, led his folk to ignore attempts at reasonable resolution and instead escalated to scare tactics. The very same tactics employed against orcs and elves, employed upon their own King. As many know, afterwards Clan Ireheart made their list of utterly unreasonable terms of settlement. In this sham of a declaration, the actions of the dwarven monarch four reigns ago were dredged up from the past, as well as their discontent at losing a fair election two reigns ago. All to give their imagined slight concerning Du Loc the image of justified rage, but it is nothing more than a pathetic power play. They demand the Grand Kingdom repay them for wrongs that were never committed, and rather than appeal to the council or through any legitimate means offered to them within the Kingdom, means in which they very likely would have been successful, Clan Ireheart elects to intimidate and put themselves above their kin. This is blatant subversion of the very institutions of which they have always proclaimed to be staunch protectors. What many do not know is that Clan Ireheart did not even have the honor or decency to wait for their terms to be addressed. Instead they immediately traveled to Oren that very stone evening, and petitioned the Emperor, declaring they would no longer fight for Urguan in the war and seeking the Empire to launch a counterattack against Urguan’s occupied territories. This is nothing short of an utter and outright betrayal of all the Sons of Urguan and all the Citizens of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan. The Reprimand from the Grand Council: Despite what many within Clan Ireheart seem to believe, they had held no disgrace in their kin’s hearts before their intimidations. No doubt, their clan was respected by all others with few individual exceptions. If they truly had grievances and disagreements, certainly through the legitimate avenues they would have successfully resolved them, but the pride of Yavok’s Folk has betrayed them. Left with no other choice, last stone evening the Grand Council, with the exception of Clan Ireheart, met with the Grand King to discuss these recent treasonous actions. After much deliberation, an overwhelming majority of the council has agreed to the following measures: First, let there be no debate. All demands made from Clan Ireheart to Grand King Ulfric Frostbeard and the Council of Urguan are denied outright. Second, let there be no disunity. Clan Ireheart is removed from its seat on the Grand Council of Urguan, only to be reinstated by a 66% majority vote of the Grand Council. Third, let there be no doubt. All members of Clan Ireheart shall be stripped of their Legion and Kingdom titles, along with the powers and the responsibilities which accompany them. Fourth, let there be no grudges. Each Ireheart who has signed his name to their ill-fated cause shall publicly apologize to Grand King Ulfric Frostbeard and swear a new oath of loyalty in the presence of the Council of Urguan. Until a Son of Yavok has made this oath, the previous terms shall be held against him. Fifth, let the instigator face justice. Gror Ireheart, publicly identified as the most traitorous of the Irehearts, shall be banished from Urguan for eternity. Sixth, let the followers face justice. Bakir Ireheart, the Rikkin of Clan Ireheart, and Ragrin Ireheart, who publicly called for Irehearts to dethrone Grand King Ulfric Frostbeard, must submit themselves to a formal trial before the High Courts of Urguan. If these terms are deemed unfair by Clan Ireheart, then understand this; you are free sons and daughters of Urguan, and despite your actions, the glory of previous cooperation cannot be forgotten. You are free by your nature created by Yemekar to be discontented, and if you find the Grand Kingdom’s denial of your demands unfavorable, then you are free to depart at your will, just as you departed under Norli. Know that you shall only be allowed to return upon resolving your wrongs, and as equals to all dwarves. If we are so corrupt and destitute in Urguan, and that it is far greater for dwarves to live as secondary vassals to Irehearts in all times; then go ahead and go. You are released from your oaths, and I pray the Brathmordakin guide you. To the rest of the realm, to Almaris, Urguan offers this warning; This changes nothing. Urguan shall stand strong for centuries to come, with or without Clan Ireheart. We shall uphold our honor with no hesitation, alongside our great allies and vassals who have fought alongside us.

  3. The Grand Kingdom of Urguan Urguan Discord: [Click Here] About The Grand Kingdom ================== The Grand Kingdom of Urguan is a constitutional monarchy established to unify and represent the Dwarven race. The Grand Kingdom itself is one with tremendous history, being the sole nation of the Dwarves for a millennia, leading back to the very first dwarf himself, Urguan. Represented through the colors of orange and gray, the nation has united the Dwarves under its banner through common religion, culture, and ideals. The religion of the land, the Brathmordakin, is a polytheistic religion composed of 7 gods, each of which represent a different aspect of Dwarven culture. Throughout history, Urguan has been best known for their expert craftsmanship, unique clan diversity, beautiful underground cities, engineering capabilities, and wartime strategy. Now on the realm of Almaris, the Grand Kingdom continues to serve as the top Dwarven hub, occupying a sprawling mountainside on the South-East section of the realm. [THESE SECTIONS CAN AND MOST LIKELY WILL CHANGE OVER TIME] The Settlements of Urguan ================== The Capital City of Kal’Darakaan Kal’Darakaan, or “the City of the Ancient Might,” is a subterranean dwarven metropolis that serves as the capital of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan.

Within the capital city, travellers can expect to find multiple clan halls, housing districts, a bustling market, a Brathmordakin temple, Grand Arena, and large area for craftsmen to hone their skills.

Next door is the Red Croupier Casino, the first casino on these lands with fully automatic slot machines and a working roulette table. There's also a magnificent belltower with a shop in its base, a greenhouse, the Knox Apartments, and a war memorial all surrounding the central castle, home to the Crimson Edict.

  5. [MUSIC] The Horn of the Deep, carved from infernal ivory harvested from the corpse of a foul beast Oliphant, booms in the Halls of Ancient Might, echoing through the valleys under the mountain’s shadow. A rhythmic ringing of hammers against anvils like a pounding drum sounds, followed by the steady thunder of ten thousand marching boots. The Tripartite Accord 11th of the Deep Cold, SA 54 "Dwarves are experts at imperial civil wars," Atandt Irongrinder, remarking to Utak Ireheart during the second Three Month War Your flagrant attempts at conquest have been stifled tenfold. You have tried to make Orenian aggression justified in faith, but have failed to usurp that faith and have only been proven by your kin as a wicked man inspired not by devotion to faith but ambition for domination and dominion. Your attempts to fight the Throngs of Urguan have all been incredible failures, our armies outmaneuvering and seizing victory over you numerous times. What few ‘successes’ that have not slipped from your clumsy control have only been possible in the dead of the Saint’s Night, under the eye of Iblees. You dare defame the proud and ancient might of Urguan’s Folk, calling us secretary of darkness, threaten to take our lands and our people, empty our coffers and even shave the royal beard? You are nothing but a tribe of spoiled, weak-willed and conceited braggarts without cause for pride. Your levies of conscripted thugs you call an army lie broken at the feet of our throng, as water breaks against a cliff-face. You fill yourself with delusions of grandeur, and vainglorious dreams of conquest, yet time and time again have proven to lack both the strength and charisma of the forefathers you shamefully mock in your pathetic mimicry. You have proven consistently to hold no intent for peace.

Whilst We crush your armies from the north, the Prince of Savoy shall set sail from San Luciano with a fleet that dwarfs your own. The soldiers aboard these galleys shall disembark on your coastline, burning your fields and ridding the world of your stunted people village by village. No quarter will be given to any dwarf, soldier or civilian, encountered by Our gallant countrymen. To paraphrase the great general, Josef Vladov, who defeated your kind at Rhewengrad and in countless other battles: should you fail to accede to these demands and admit your transgressions, the sun will set a final time on perfidious Urguan.” ~ Philip III, 4 Stone Days ago. To Philip III, We are waiting. The Legion of Urguan prepared for your ‘invasion’ and the ‘burning of our villages’, yet you have not shown. We have awaited the ‘fleet of Savoy’ at our Southern border, yet they have not shown. The time given Urguan within your ultimatum has passed, and you still have not shown. Instead, your throne room has been burned, your forces have been slain, and you have remained silent in the empty threats you declared against our great nation. Our legion grows tired of waiting, and I am sure your forces tire of losing against only a fraction of our army in the small squabbles we have had thus far. Urguan’s Folk fear that your inaction may result in yet another violent uprising within your ranks, and we both know Oren cannot survive that. We await your arrival.

  7. [!] A depiction of the Orenian Capital, a fire burning long into the night. THE MEN OF MORN & THE COWARDS OF NIGHT Some chose to linger in the shadows of night, fretfully biting at their nails until blood sheds from the tip of their fingers. For these so called men have as much honor as they have triumphs in battles where the odds have been fair. Only as night cracks, do the mentioned men - men of Orenian ilk, come out to take up arms. As their force is about as competent as a barrel of lobsters fighting. They struck Urguan in the early hours of the day, just like the cowards they are, cravens in tin suits to mask their wobbling bellies. Those of honesty, take up arms in the midst of day, just when the rabble of cities surmount. The tides of a snake’s war are about as easy to turn around, about as much as the morning eggs of a Halfling. Hence, the joint forces of Urguan showed up at the front gates of Saint James. It was the Men of the Morn, in great contrast to the Cowards of the Night. Recent history has told the Orenians are certainly men of faith. The good Orenians provided the gateway and keys to their city - literally so. Boots sounded from outside of the city, causing many a man or woman to flee into their homes. With the last door promptly shut, the brave joint forces landed into the yolk of Saint James, standing true and tall at the center of the city. Where one fool, Joseph d’Azor found himself captive and in shackles within seconds. Then again, the turncoat of Oren can only leach onto power, his one capability to shine his shoes, with that smooth brain of his. Expectly, the Cowards of the Night did not take up prestigious, patriotic arms to save their good man. Instead their eyes watched him be taken until the horizon showed him no more, perched shakily upon one of their walls. One capture was not enough for the forces albeit, as they remained in the city - expecting a fight. Was it a war? They thought. Or was it the great pitching of tents? Only those with morsels of valor descended to clash blades with the invading force, to no avail, but at the very least, they fought - as those in war should. Battle ensued for minutes before another staring contest persisted. Yet, the eyes of Orenian men only lingered on the destruction to come, while the joint forces only saw triumph. The Clock Tower would strike nil, as the foreshadowed end of times bestowed itself upon the decaying Empire of Oren. What good soldiers would allow an invasion without a defense? To allow their women and children to flee to their homes, knowing their army to be no more than conscripted lousy, dunces. Torches were tossed against the tower, flames licking the sides, until an uproar of inferno took its entirety. Still, the Orenian soldiers moved less than an inch. Cries took hold of Saint James. Still, the Orenian soldiers moved less than an inch. T'was the end of times to come, the beginning of their own declared end. An Emperor declaring oneself as Emperor. An Emperor declaring his own war. An Emperor declaring his own fate. Narvak oz Urguan, Philip III. Part 3 of 3.

SA 54 (December 8th, 2021) ᚾᚨᚱᚺ-ᛞᚨ-ᚾᚨᚴᚺᚢᛗ'ᚢᚱ-ᛞᚨ-ᛟᚱᚡᚢᛚ-ᚾᚨᚴᚺᛁᛗᛁᚱᚨᛉ A RESPONSE TO 'EXCORIATION OF URGUANITES' ᚡᛖᛚᛖᚱᚨᚴ-ᛟᛉ-ᛞᚨ-ᛟᚾᛟᚱ'ᚴᚨᛞᚱᛖᛚ'ᚾᚨᚱᚺᛖ To the Usurper ‘Emperor’ of Oren, The Dwarves of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan do not care for your petty attempts at feigning righteousness. You can save your sly remarks and passive-aggressive chatter for ‘your’ new citizens, as who knows how long it will be before yet another forceful uprising presents itself at your feet. Let us correct your decree, as we Dwarves have lived through the events that you can only read about in history books. Before we continue on in correcting your falsities, let it be known that we, Urguan’s Folk, deny any demands made by your ‘Empire’ upon our people. The only further political correspondence we shall accept is the presentation of Ser Duncan to our Lord Justicar to be tried within Urguani Court for the breach of our previous Non-Aggression Pact and the Attempted murder of 2 Urguani Legionnaires. If such is not presented to us, the Dwedmar are prepared for war. We understand that you must attempt to slander our name as ‘Anti-Canonist Heathens’ and make this out to be a ‘Holy War’ to garner much needed support from other Canonist nations, yet it has become rather obvious to everyone besides yourself that the Grand Kingdom has always been accepting of all religions within our halls. The fuss created over our canonist vassals and your ‘DEMAND’ for us to never allow such to happen again truly shows that you cannot realize that the true problems lay within your walls, not ours. The ‘Empire’ of Oren has proven itself to be an egregious place to live to the point where numerous previous vassals have fled your fields to instead be within ours. You attack us as a host nation because you know that your treatment of vassal states has been so horrific that they would rather live with the ‘heathens’ than a ‘pure canonist nation’ such as your own. To any who continue to believe this war is about religion, please walk through Urguan’s realm and behold the diverse religious groups living within Urguani land. There is no further explanation needed for such a blatant falsity, as anyone can see its sole purpose is to garner support. Need we also remind you that we, the ‘secretaries of Iblees’, were the ones who locked him away in the first place? Regardless of your own beliefs on religion it is clear your knowledge of history is lacking, as you have forgotten the facts of the 18 Years’ War. While yes, Orenian forces managed to siege a rapidly built fort on the edge of our territory, you have forgotten the tales of your ancestors fleeing back within their borders after realizing the Grand Empire began to push back. You have forgotten the tales of the Siege of Kal’Ordholm, where your ancestors failed to even breach the outermost wall of the Dwarven Fortress before being entirely eradicated by Urguani forces. You have forgotten the tales of the Siege of Khro’Nogaak, where your ancestors’ forces were burned alive the second they touched the walls of the fortress. You have forgotten the White Peace rapidly declared by your ancestors the second they realized they were losing. While your ancestors have long passed since the realm of Vailor, we Dwed continue to live on to this day. The same Dwed who designed those impenetrable fortresses of the past have further perfected their craft to this day. The same legionnaires who have witnessed the death of loved ones by Orenian hands live on to this day. The same Grand Kingdom which has defeated and conquered your ‘Empire’ lives on to this day. Should you and your ‘Empire’ wish to declare war on the Grand Kingdom, remember that history repeats itself, and it is not on your side.

  9. [!] A painting made by a Dwarf, with the mountains of Urguan seen in the background. A CONCISE VICTORY In this third month of the War of the Wigs, a chapter has come to a close. Urguan spends their time celebrating one of many victories that they have earned when news reaches the halls of Kal'Darakaan of treachery within the Empire. The Emperor of Oren, Philip II has vanished without a trace and in his place, a usurper has risen. In addition to plotting to overthrow the Orenian government and previous Emperor, they have sided with their fellow usurpers to the South. The once peaceful hamlet of Sutica, that was defended by all of Arcas against Oren, fell to the same underhanded peoples that now lay claim to the Holy Orenian Empire. With this fact in mind, they have perpetrated the honor war between Urguan and Oren. Due to this, we see no purpose in continuing a war against those who had not transgressed against us. Therefore with the capitulation of the 8th Empire of Oren, the Grand Kingdom claims victory in this short but brutal war. Philip II, much like myself, had led our people with our heads raised high with both honor and pride, but one cannot yet say the same for his so-called successor. This is not the way we wished nor expected the war to end, but these discrepancies must be attended to all the same. Because of the power vacuum caused by the previous Emperor’s disappearance, there is only one certainty that the future holds. The sons and daughters of Urguan shall remain steadfast come whatever may happen. And as such, will not stand aside while aggressions are made to our kin from this new Empire. If the usurper of Philip II wishes to come to the lands of the Grand Kingdom, then he will be met with full retaliation in accordance with his transgression. If he wishes to remain in his new city and begin an era of peace between our folk, then we will accept that with open arms after seeing all grudges settled. Therefore as of this missive, I, Grand King Ulfric Frostbeard, of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan, proclaim victory over Philip II in the War of the Wigs. What comes next is to be decided by he who’d take advantage of the power vacuum, be that Philip III, or any other ambitious Umri who have not yet felt the wrath of Dungrimm. But until then, we shall remain dormant with our victory. To whoever manages to take Oren by the horns and lead them the way their predecessor did, we Dwedmar shall fervently await their response.

  10. A Letter Regarding Your Beds To the Vullier household, from a friendly dwarf. Now, while I am no expert on sleep, I do know a few things on a good nights rest. Not too long ago during the War, before your weak Emperor was embarrasingly coup'd, I raided your house, with ease I must say, and I came upon many of your rooms with beds. Now, one of the rooms stood out in particular, which I assume was your sons rooms. An issue I had with their beds, was how stiff they were, me and my partner layed in them, and soon found how uncomfortable they were, and as a warrior, one of many Wig-Wearer slayers, need to rest my back after slaying many an Orenian fool. So, I write you this letter, as a warning. A good nights rest, can lead to many positive things, and a stiff bed, one that of your sons, will only lead to their death on the battlefield. Another benefit of a soft bed is one more grim, but not uncommon for Orenians, it gives a soothing sense, after a long battle lost, watching many friends fall in battle to dwarven battlaxes can be tiring, and a soft bed sooths the blow. So next time I wish to visit, as I will, I hope to see you have a soft bed, and one that does not stain, for when blood will be spilt, I wish not to ruin your mattress. Sincerely, A Friendly Dwarf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ag1o3koTLWM
  11. 13th of the Amber Cold, SA 46 (October 18th, 2021) ᚾᚨᚱᚺ-ᛞᚨ-ᚾᚨᚴᚺᚢᛗ'ᚢᚱ-ᛞᚨ-ᛟᚱᚡᚢᛚ-ᚾᚨᚴᚺᛁᛗᛁᚱᚨᛉ A MANDATE OF REFORM ᚡᛖᛚᛖᚱᚨᚴ-ᛟᛉ-ᛞᚨ-ᛟᚾᛟᚱ'ᚴᚨᛞᚱᛖᛚ'ᚾᚨᚱᚺᛖ To My Fellow Dwedmar and Fine Folk of Urguan: In the ancient realms of centuries past, the dwarven lords met in council to discuss the future of their kingdom under the lead of Under-King Thorik Grandaxe. They saw a future for Urguan beyond its centralized capital hold, where yrrommar and friends of the Brathmordakin, beardless as they may be, should share in the wide lands of the kingdom. It was in this council that a dream was born, and the future of all dwarfdom determined; the Grand Kingdom. From that point on- with few short eras of exception- the Grand Kingdom would endure as the primary dwarven faction. With the Grand Kingdom’s presence, the world would be ensured its traditions of order, creation and honor, and most certainly those residing within were chief among its protection and allies in its fight for civilization. In the realm of Arcas there were few beyond the dwedmar alone in such a grand fight, but it is with great pride that I gaze upon the mountains and their shadows cast over a prosperous realm of numerous peoples, united through a common investment in the lands. But there is no denying the fact that there are few who feel respected beyond the order of tenant and landlord, few who feel pride in the sacred standard of the orange and gray. It has come to my attention of the desire for a reform of our vassalage system at its most basic roots, a desire which I share vision in. Whilst I cannot yet divulge much of what has been worked on so far, I shall say that it is my hope that I can reveal a new system which shall include all those that call Urguan their home in some fashion. A system which rewards those that work hard, and gives proper assistance to those who may need it. With this said, l see fit to call for a Grand Assembly, the likes of which I expect will show how dedicated we are to the Grand Kingdom as a whole, dwedmar and yrrommar, all citizens of the empire. Here all shall be welcome to share the vision for a new system of the Grand Kingdom, to determine the future cooperation and management of its realm.

  12. Campaign of Durorn Ireheart INTRODUCTION When the rare new dwarf walks into our Grand Kingdom, all they see is a ghost town. Our halls run empty and the hum of hammers against steel ring silent. Our Grand King has been absent, and no member of the council beyond Dhaen Grandaxe has moved to fill this void. Urguan needs someone with fresh ideas, not weighed down from the past of previous administrations. Not weighed down from the ideas of what can, or will not be. I believe this individual is me, Durorn Ireheart, who holds the initiative to bring a return to stability and a potential golden age for the Grand Kingdom of Urguan. It is time for Urguan to stamp its mark back into international affairs, it is time for Urguan to take back control. It is time for Durorn Ireheart. GUILDS THE WORKER’S GUILD: The worker’s guild is the backbone of Urguanian society. Without the workers of Urguan we are nothing. Their daily contributions are what keeps the Grand Kingdom progressing and prepared for any event. For this reason, the Worker’s Guild should be given jurisdiction over all resource gathering activities such as mining, woodcutting, farms, stables and animal pens. To cage up the Worker’s Guild to only the mines would lead to inefficiencies in our logistics and stockpiling. In terms of support, the Worker’s Guild should work alongside the Grand King and the council to ensure that the Worker’s of Urguan are treated and compensated fairly for their contributions to the Grand Kingdom. I myself had humble origins in the Worker’s Guild as both a miner and a smith, I empathize with those who work so hard to keep our nation afloat. THE CLINIC: The Clinic is a necessity in our nation for it heals the sick and wounded, and more importantly our wounded warriors. The Clinic allows for new facets of work for dwarves to delve into. In order to foster the curiosity of new medical staff, I wish to work closely with Mica Grandaxe, the Head of the Clinic, to create a Medical School for Urguan. So outsiders and dwarves alike can come to Urguan and seek medical teachings from some of the best medics in the world. The Clinic also has an international aspect to it. Our ally, Haense, is renowned for its clinic program and cooperation between the Haensetian and Urguanian clinic can build our relations with Haense but also bring visitors to medical meetings in Urguan. THE LEGION: The guild that has the most significant impact on Urguanian society and the Grand Kingdom. A nation is only as safe as it’s military and policing force. As Grand King, I will be able to use my experience as a Legion Commander, Grand Champion, and Grand Marshal to make sure that Urguan is safe from all external forces that may seek our demise. It is important for our Legion to be ready and prepared for any defense of our Grand Kingdom. The Legion of Urguan should also become a symbol of dwarven strength and power on the international stage. Joint-practices with our allies in the Iron Accord will only allow us to become stronger and more prepared for any circumstance. MERCHANT GUILD: The Grand Merchant for too long has become a “tax collector”. Back in Asulon and Anthos, the Grand Merchants of Urguan were some of the richest descendents alive. The Grand Merchant was much more than just a “tax collector” and they led some of the richest institutions in the world. This in turn helps Urguan prosper and gain wealth. I trust Dhaen Grandaxe with these tasks to lead The Merchant Guild of Urguan so that we may once again prosper. The Merchant Guild should include tasks such as establishing trade agreements between other nations, controlling the nation’s finances, selling dwarven goods and crafts to other nations, and the collection of taxes. SMALLER GUILDS: Smaller guilds should still be encouraged within the nation even if they are not Royal Guilds. I hope to encourage new guilds to grow and be created. This allows Dwarves with a multitude of things to do and most importantly, do what they enjoy. FOREIGN RELATIONS THE IRON ACCORD: For too long our current leadership has forgotten our allies in the Iron Accord. When I talk to my dear friends in Haense, they feel as if the alliance is only an alliance on paper with no real intention of true friendship. Our allies in the Iron Accord should be valued and cooperated with. I plan to go on many trips to improve our national relations with both the nations of Haense and Norland, so that we may increase cooperation between our nations. More importantly, I wish for Urguan to become the spearhead of the alliance so that we may host meetings for our allies. This will bring visitors and foreigners to our once empty halls of Urguan. The Iron Accord allows us to also cooperate militarily with each other but also allows us an easy way to set up agreements and cooperation between our guilds. The Iron Accord can also help us in the defense of our territory. [OOC NOTE: Due to the low influx of dwarven players from whitelist applications, another steady way of bringing in new dwarves is through showing foreigners our culture and making dwarven RP seem interesting & enjoyable. This will encourage people to create and try out dwarven roleplay] THE THREAT OF EXTERNAL FORCES: To deal with the threat of possible external forces, it is important that we fortify our lands with the construction of forts in strategic locations. This is important so that we can defend our Grand Kingdom against any foe that threatens our beloved nation. We will also need to strengthen the legion, which I will be involved in personally, so that we can act swiftly in a time of crisis. With these precautions in place, we will be able to fend off any enemies of Urguan. I want to be able to protect our borders and be able to hold claim over the Mountains of Urguan and ensure the claims to our borders are not challenged. DOMESTIC AFFAIRS FEASTS AND EVENTS: With improved foreign relations we can work to hold festivals and events so that our halls may be filled with visitors. Our halls should not be empty, instead they should be full of merchants and visitors and become the center of Almaris. I hope if I become Grand King that I could work closely with the clergy, Norli Starbreaker, and the tavern, Levian’Tol Grandaxe, so we can throw the best religious feasts and ceremonies. These feasts and festivals should not just be limited to being held in the capital city, but also be held in Hefrumm. HEFRUMM: As Grand King I do not plan to favor just the dwarves who live under the mountain, but Urguan as a whole. A Grand King should represent all people in Urguan, including the Forest Dwarves. For this reason, I hope to encourage Hefrumm to host events and feasts for their religious ceremonies and paragon, Bjor Cottonwood. Not only this but Hefrumm should be given more autonomy to do what Hefrumm does best. I am not a forest dwarf, nor do I live in Hefrumm, but the High Chief knows what is the best course of action for Hefrumm. Due to this, the Chief of Hefrumm should be given more authority to enact the things that they believe will do good for the people for Hefrumm. Also, the High Chief of Hefrumm is only limited to one singular vote, which is an unfair representation of the clans of Hefrumm. It is my intention to right this inequality, and allow the High Chief’s vote to count for as many forest dwarf clans in Hefrumm that meet the voter eligibility. This will allow a fair representation of Hefrumm and it’s people in the regular council meetings. THE LAND LEASE ACT: The Land Lease Act has affected my clan personally, and my Grandaxe friends have spoken to me about their elderly plight. With Norli as a strong supporter of it when it first passed, it has caused many repercussions for large clans. My clan has outgrown their clan hall and so was seeking to gain land in Urguan for a settlement. Upon asking, our clan father was told to pay a hefty down payment plus pay taxes on the settlement. This forced us to move away from Urguan and find territory in the nation of Krugmar, for free. It seems to me that this deal has also affected other elder clans such as the Grandaxes, where elders of the clan are forced to live in the slums of Urguan. At the same time us dwarves have to pay for land, the Edict was given land for free for their own use in our nation. I will not allow this to happen under my reign and instead take care of my dwarves. I plan to hopefully edit this act and lower the prices for owning land in Urguan for groups of individuals and clans. THE COUNCIL: For a long time now, the council has been a symbol of constant bickering and inefficiency. Council meetings last many stone hours without getting anything effectively done. I hope to effectively wield the council so that our meetings can be drastically shortened while getting stuff done. I want to sit down and mediate a new version of the Articles of Urguan instead of placing the burden on one man 3 times and the system not working once. INFRASTRUCTURE: It is important for any extra mina to be invested directly into the Grand Kingdom again. We should invest our mina into expanding the mines, farms, and mills we have as well as implementing ferries in our port. This infrastructure is crucial for Urguan to develop a bustling economy as well as allow visitors to visit easier. Forts and Defenses also need to be built so that we can organize the defenses of our territory from anymore aggressions that our enemies may plan. I hope to bring life to the dying Architecture Guild and finding a notable replacement for the preceding Grand Architects. THE ECONOMY: Our economy as dwarves should not solely rely on the collection of taxes. As dwarves, we create the finest works of smithing as well as the best brews. We should use our excellent craftsmanship to excel in places like international trade. Setting up shops in foreign nations so that all descendents may know of the quality of dwarven made goods. The Merchant’s Guild will be in close contact with me so as to work with the Grand King to create a prosperous future for the Kingdom. I also want to develop our own coin and be able to not only keep it in Urguan, but also spread it to our allies in Haense and Norland as well as our close neighbors Vaeylia. STOPPING PETTY FEUDS: It is time for dwarves to stand united for a common goal, the betterment of Urguan. Feuds between the Grandaxes and the Metalfists did no good for the Urguan except divide two great clans. Division is not good, and we can learn from our history that dwarves should not fight between themselves, but stand united for a common cause and the defense of our Grand Kingdom. With me on the throne, I will do my best to mediate petty feuds that may cause division within our Kingdom. Durorn Ireheart, Commander of the Legion and Grand Champion and Elder of Clan Ireheart

  14. As issued 11th of The Grand Harvest, 2A 6 THE SIXTEEN GRAND CHAMPION OF URGUAN After the conclusion of the Grand Tournament of Urguan, Grimnir Ireheart stood at the Great Dias of the Arena of Urguan being given the sovereign question on his acceptance of the title of Grand Champion. He stated simply he intended to fight only with honor but not accept the title in any stead, thus forfeiting to Durorn Ireheart. He was given the same question with triumph “Durorn Ireheart, vested in me as Grand Marshal of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan and seeing you fit as the best example of honor and pride in Urguan. Do you accept the title of Grand Champion of Urguan, defender of the Grand King and the light of dwarven valor?” The Marshal stated simply shouting to the spectators all gazing up with envy His answer was simple. “Aye” Silence overcame the arena as the Marshal would grab Durorn’s hand bringing it up high as a sign of victory “THEN HAIL TO THE GRAND CHAMPION!

  17. As issued 10th of The Sun's Smile, 4 2A MILITARY FINANCIAL ALLOCATION ACT It is the sovereign duty of the Grand Council to guarantee that the Legion of Urguan is not only active but properly equipped. In the past, this duty has been left to the oversight of the Grand Merchant and the Grand King, however, those charged with the upkeep of the Legion have neglected their duties, placing the burden upon the Grand Marshal and his officers. This dereliction of responsibility was successful in the past only because of the abundance of wealth that the Grand Kingdom enjoyed. Yet in recent times, a lack of funds has been felt throughout the continent, leaving the Legion struggling to acquire sufficient capital to support its infrastructure. Thus, we now find it necessary to form a proper budget for the Legion, allowing the Grand Marshal and his officers the appropriate funds required to fulfill their obligations both to protect the Kingdom during times of peace and to ready the military for any future conflicts. SECTION I - THE LEGION BUDGET The pay scale for the Legion may only be adjusted through the Grand Council of Urguan, although the Grand Marshal may pay bonuses to legionnaires directly from the Legion Reserve. The payment of each member is based on their rank, and the pay will be as follows: Grand Marshal: N/A Commander: N/A Legate: 24 Minae Pridebearer: 20 Minae Longbeard: 16 Minae Ironbreaker: 12 Minae Stoneguard: 8 Minae Grunt: 4 Minae Based on the pay scales outlined, the Legion of Urguan shall receive funds from the Treasury of the Grand Kingdom. The number of funds allotted to the Legion will be revised on a biennial (every two years) basis, to account for any growth in the legion. The redefining of the Budget is to be a collective effort between the Grand Merchant and the Grand Marshal. SECTION II - THE LEGION RESERVE It has always been the nature of the Legion that those who work, receive compensation, and those who do not work will not receive compensation. As a result, there may be an excess of funds at the end of some years. Thus we propose a Legion Reserve, governed by the following regulations: The Legion Reserve is to be controlled directly by the Grand Marshal and is to be dispensed at his discretion, so long as it is to benefit the Legion. Examples of Proper dispensation of funds include, but are not limited to: The payment of new legionnaires. The acquisition of arms and armor. The payment of bonuses to legionnaires that excel in their service. The payment of Legion sponsored events. The payment required to maintain the Legion of Urguan Mission System. This reserve is limited to a maximum of 2,000 minae but it may be raised through the will of the Grand Council. Any surplus mina will be remitted directly to the Kingdom. Donations made directly to the Legion will also go directly into this reserve and thus be under the purview of the minae limit. SECTION III - STATUTES & REVISALS This bill reaffirms the Grand King’s innate sole authority over the Legion. The Grand King may at choice reject the spending of the Legion Reserve. Furthermore, in order to check the powers granted to the Grand Marshal and the Legion by this document. The Grand King, as well as the Grand Merchant, will be granted the power to audit The Legion Budget and Legion Reserve at any time. Upon their request, the Grand Marshal will be required to provide detailed financial documents that show when and how the Legion’s Funds are being utilized. If some discrepancy is found in these documents, the Grand Marshal will be held legally accountable and will be investigated for fraud. Furthermore, if implemented, any section of this proposal is subject to change through a simple majority vote of the Grand Council. Such proposals may include a change to legion payscale, adjusted regulation of the Legion Reserve, implementation of additional oversight, etc. Jórvin son of Kazrin, of the Elder Clan of Starbreaker, Grand King of Urguan’s Folk, Clan-Lord of Gotrek’s Folk, Lord of Kal'Darakaan, Tal'Sjorvath, and Kal’Evraal, Bane of the Neverborn, Slayer of Gazardiael and Savior of the Realm, Founding Member of the Council of the Fourth Grand Kingdom of Urguan, Beloved by the Brathmordakin, Keeper of the Great Book of Grudges.
