  1. CATHALON RISING (or How Helton Hadrian Brought Down the Republic) 12th of Owyn’s Light, 1724 Twas the 9th of Owyn’s Light when the Seventeenth Assembly was called. Delegates from around Ves attended within the Great Hall of the Prince’s Palace, and to many, it would have simply been another normal assembly meeting. However, this would not be the case, for it would be a monumental day in the history of the assembly. Helton Hadrian arose, calling forth a quorum amongst the delegates only to realize that four seats had been left vacant from departures to the demon-hive that was Llyria. And so, like the assemblies before it, a raffle was conducted. Only six came forth, offering their honorably-acquired gains to purchase tickets. The raffle was conducted, and so four new assemblymen rose to take the place of those who abandoned the Republic. GOD bless Caleb Crider, Jayce Lancefeld, Caius Rhodes, and Robert Rovin. Only one issue was brought forth to the assembly that day, a petition - a plea - issued by the Prince Regent Helton Hadrian Helvets. He sought order. “There have been tea ceremonies in Ba'as more able in government than this worthless pit of gossip.” Simon of Bass remarking on the state of the Serene Republic of Ves, 1724. “Within the past year alone, our Republic has fallen victim to all manner of vice and debauchery. The Beets began their insurrection, decimating the defenses of our Golden City. Were that not enough, our most Serene Prince, Ide Haraccus has abandoned his post, fleeing to Llyria whilst our people were stricken with the ratman menace!” The assembly frowned - not because of the honorable Prince Regent - but instead due to the feeling of betrayal. The rowdy assemblymen who had dedicated their lives to Ves’s Military boo’d, cursing the name and the deeds of corruption. In the crowd, one could hear Assemblyman Rovin shout “Drain the Swamp!” Helton, ultimately, continued. “I ask you, of the assembly, is this what our people deserve? In the past few years he was the second Prince to abandon Ves. Are we to hold ourselves as servants to this craven and that, over and over again?” He paused for some time, allowing the assembly to digest what was being said. “I will tell you all of where I, as Prince-Procurate, have been since Ide abandoned the Republic! I was in the streets, fighting alongside the Caer Bann as the Beets sought to usurp our Republic! I fought and bled alongside the people of Ves as the ratmen besieged us from within our very walls!” Those who were patriotic boomed at this, for they knew that the Prince did not simply talk the talk but instead walked the walk. The Regent had bled for his people, more than could be said for the previous heads of state. “Praise Helvets!” could be heard from the plethora of assemblymen, with claps and unruly cheers echoing throughout the hall. “And I will tell you, my assembly, that we have won! The Beets have fled the realm, the ratmen lay broken and defeated! All while our supposed Prince has hid himself away in Llyria.” “Helvets, Helvets, Helvets!” repeated those with patriotic fervor, becoming inspired by the speech. “What I ask you now is the gravest of all favors. The PRINCE has FAILED. The REPUBLIC has FAILED. I ask you, the ASSEMBLY, to JOIN with me and reorganize Ves into THE FIRST DUCHY OF CATHALON!” Helvets exclaimed. His voice rang through the room, being heard by all. A pause was evident, for not even a rat’s squeak could be heard in the dead silence of the chamber. Helvets inhaled, concluding “For a safe and secure society…” Those present knew; as did the populace, that Helvets was correct. There was need for change, and so, the hall was called to a vote. An overwhelming majority was reached, Seven patriotic men voted in Favor of the Duchy, No one dared object, and only Three Abstained. Thus, with a Two-Thirds Majority, the motion was passed, and so, the Republic was reorganized into the Grand Duchy of Cathalon. “CATHALON INVICTA!” “I love Democracy...” said Helvets with a beautiful, elegant smile. And all bar those who slithered in grass knew from this day forward Ves would be on the incline, rather than the decline.
  2. The Athalian people are modest individuals who have flourished throughout the years with their teachings based on naturalism and preservation of the natural balance within the ecosystem. They represent not as much strength but instead presenting to others the creative and gentle way of life they have refined upon the tidal cliffs for themselves. As such most of Athalia’s buildings and structures are created with the usage of plants and other natural materials, causing the citizens to carefully maintain the vegetation to further allow the growth of the city and flora itself. The process of conserving such a unique culture is not something easily obtained, the people of Athalia are known to avoid conflict at any cost, as an alternative, they bring new citizens to their safe harbor with their innovations for peace. History The Athalian people have a deep-rooted history alongside with other cultures and religions, unlike many settlements, the cultural dispersion of Athalia is a rather leveled out one with a majority of elves and humans dwelling within the settlement but also a fair amount of orcs and other races having influenced the lifestyle within the kingdom. There have been many unique laws set into effect which prevent racism between the races and individuals inside the settlement, as such the relaxed ambiance of the city attracts more people to its wondrous existence. Granting all of this, the people of Athalian have been around for many realms though only now they have decided to become familiar with their neighboring settlements, while the objective of nonaggression that they strived to acquire would only be something they obtained presently. During the beginning of these ancient realms, various geographical environments allowed civilizations to form and utilize the area, one being a militarized group made mostly of humans and the other being an advanced architectural group of elven ancestors. These two settlements gathered their strong hatred for each other due to a dispute between borders and natural materials that became scarce in certain areas of the lands. After some time of conflict and bloodshed, the elven settlement presented a treaty that would allow them to share the given land and all peace may be restored. The humans had a different approach when attempting to deal with the situation; sneaking into the elven settlement and slaughtering few members. While this would have provoked the elven people, they only continued to show kindness and peace until a formal treaty was given and looked over once more. After the conflict had passed and the treaty was agreed upon, only then did both settlements and cultures unite and completed the balance they both sought out. Peace is more than the absence of war, people learned that after the troubles had ended that to live with love is the only way to achieve true peace. When they began these teachings of guiding your actions by a love that is not tainted with self-serving motives and does not cause harm to the balance, you will find the paradise your soul craves. These words enlightened the people of both settlements as the unity showed true tolerance to people unlike them. This idea of neutrality is what brought peace to Athalia, currently allowing them to form alliances with their neighboring settlers and different cultures, religion, and race. The current period of Arcas is one of pure conflict and war between the races, something that would be known throughout the rest of history as did the other wars. The mainlands of Arcas continued to pose more dangerous each moment, bandits taking their chances to ransack people moving along the road, armies of each nation attacking anyone who seems to be an enemy, natural disasters, and so much more. With the Isles of Korvassa growing and becoming much more advanced, people began to seek safety and somewhere of peace away from the wartorn mainlands. Those people formed the new city of Athalia, hailing near the coastal lining of the isles and surrounded by its magnificent vegetation. Religion Originating from their druidic and elvish influence the state religion of Athalia is Aspectism, yet, most other religious forms are accepted within the kingdom. As such people can freely worship most religions and be part of the kingdom without having any trouble with the laws of Athalia or other citizens. Excluded from such rules are religions which are overly aggressive towards other forms of beliefs or which break the balance itself, such as Necromantic beliefs in demonology and worshipping of dark beings. Due to the strong influence of Aspectism many rituals, often those tied to nature and the seasons, are practiced within the walls of Athalia, often resulting in colorful and rather entertaining festivals. Military and Warfare Known as the Silverwood Guards the military force of Athalia is known to be lead by a singular leader, which is often being assisted by a council of other fighters. The leader and council members can be of any gender, as all members of the guard force can be, allowing both men and women to partake in the defense of Athalia. Often wearing silver-colored armor each individual is also known to hold a leather-version of their armor to act within the deserted lands to the north without being cooked alive. Normally guards are being trained in swordsmanship, yet, over the years the focus changed to a more refined usage of spears and tridents to carry out their work, which is often said to originate from their location near the sea and the easier usage of such in their daily work near the waters. Often said weaponry is made out of Ferrum, yet, Aurum weapons are also known to be used by the guard force. However, while Athalia may hold a guard force of their own they are barely found in battles against other kingdoms and nations, due to their alliances with said nations. Most commonly their alliances are created to maintain peace and order on the Isles of Korvassa, allowing the settlements on the isles to flourish and grow. Politics Currently, the kingdom of Athalia is ruled by a monarchy and a formed council of ministers that conduct different aspects of the settlement. Each of the Ministers directs their own Ministry which work on their assignments. The function of the Athalian government is based on trust and agreement, while meetings are held almost every few elven weeks. The Ministry Of Magical Affairs often is in charge of the documentation and granting of permits for casting legal magic. They have been trained in various ways to be able to counter and capture any criminal and or rogue mages that wish to bring harm down to the kingdom. They are to accept only trusted individuals that do not have any criminal record or other foreign issues that could cause problems for the ministry. The Ministry Of Internal Affairs is in charge of the stewartry and enforcing taxes upon the citizens and owners of homes, shops, et cetera. They are usually seen helping newcomers gain citizenship and homes within the kingdom, while they collect taxes and make sure that no one avoids paying. The Ministry Of Militaristic and Defensive Affairs documents new recruits for the Silverwood Guards and keeps the kingdom's defenses intact. The Minster tends to do more paperwork as the lower ranks conduct more training regiments, et cetera. The ministry was formed at the beginning of the formation of the settlement as it was to protect the monarch and citizens from harm's way and or any conflict that was presented to Athalia. The Ministry Of Diplomatic Affairs is one of the most important aspects of the kingdom, used to form alliances between different nations and settlements while keeping good ties with them. The recruitment of different diplomats with good foreign affairs and skills when staying within different kingdoms to bring Athalia’s necessities first. The Ministry Of Healthcare and Welfare has been created to keep good health conditions throughout the kingdom and to give out legal medical permits to whoever wishes to use their medical knowledge for assisting the kingdom in times of needs. The Ministry Of Educational Affairs was created to allow young citizens to study and learn about the world outside of Athalia, as such the Ministry is holding school classes for interested people, teaching them about religions, magic, history and even different languages. Marriage and Divorce Unlike most nations or states, marriages and divorces are a lot easier to get through, mostly due to the simple fact that any minister is allowed to divorce a couple. Yet, marriages still need to be approved by the spiritual leader of Athalia, while any priest is allowed to perform them, making it fairly easy to get married or divorced. At the same time, same-sex-relationships and poly-relationships are also allowed within Athalia, meaning that a person can have multiple partners, living in a form of family. They aren’t allowed to marry, yet, are seen equally to married couples, creating the feeling of safety within everyone. Infrastructure Athalia’s architecture is mostly influenced by the naturalism and elven aspects of their culture, as most buildings maintain the thick vegetation of flora that spreads throughout the kingdom. Most of the buildings don’t cause harm to the natural terrain and geography of Athalia but actually utilizes it in order to create a unique ecosystem between the citizens and nature itself. They have refined and formed various designs for the structures of the city, while also being adaptable enough to construct their city upon the tidal cliffs of the northern end of Korvassa. Vines and leaves often intertwine with the stone patterns of their roads and foundations of the buildings, natural streams of water flowing down the hillsides as to aid the watering of the nearby land, allowing new flora to grow and to bloom. While the city is closely tied to nature, ancient forests of thick and old trees are scattered across the lands outside of the walls, allowing the natural ecosystem to flourish as intended. Economy The economy of Athalia is based around numerous trade agreements with other nations and settlements which reside within neighboring lands. The kingdom of Athalia usually trades natural materials such as spices, herbs, and medicines of varying rarity. Athalian merchants are often found within nations and settlements which are allied to Athalia and don’t pose a threat to the individuals, such as Sutica, Urugan, and a few others. While Athalia is known for these herbal and natural based materials and products for trade, there was often insufficient earnings to be made, causing the people of Athalia to adapt. Through the creation of new wares and new products to sell, thanks to the integration of new cultures and citizens into Athalia itself, the economy is flourishing once again. Magic Magic is well-known within Athalia and is most often seen as something respectable and something one needs to work for to obtain it. As such, most forms of magic are legalized and allowed to be used within the walls of Athalia, including voidal forms, deific forms, and forms which don’t fall under the Dark Arts. While this is the case, Druidism is the most prominent one and is often seen as the most liked and preferred form of magic within the lands of Athalia, either due to the fact that nature is constantly surrounding a person, as it is part of the city itself, or due to the fertile soil that the citizens walk upon. However, while magic is popular and mostly legalized, the Dark Arts are still seen as dangerous and impure, forbidding such mages the entry to the city as a whole.
  3. [!] Within the lands of Athalia one would be able to find notice boards, each covered by thick rose vines and spikes. Upon those boards would be a list for all visitors and citizens of Athalia to read, listing all wanted criminals and banishments that occurred within Athalia, while also holding a short description of each individual. A banished individual is not allowed to enter the lands of Athalia without the clear permission of the ministers and only after a vote was done within the council. If entering the land without permission the individual will be removed by force, either through the local guard force or by the nearby citizens. Wanted criminals are to be arrested on sight if they are found on Athalian land and brought to the local guardforce. If the criminal is refusing force may be used to arrest them.

  5. 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. To the mire, I return. Credit to Axelu for writing the entire thing, I’m just here for the rep.

  8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj_wyw6Xrq4&ab_channel=AdrianvonZiegler The Kingdom of Caer Conaithe & of Y Tuath Cadeyrn "They are tall in stature, with rippling muscles under clear white skin, they look like wood demons" Physically the Bradáchs are terrifying in appearance, with deep sounding voices. They frequently exaggerate with the aim of extolling themselves. They are boasters and threateners and given to bombastic self-dramatisation, and yet they are quick of mind and with good natural ability for learning" Lore of the Bradách The Bradách peoples are a mix of Northern raiders and a unique culture. Choosing to live either on islands or hillforts, preferring proximity to the sea and living most of their life as farmers and fishermen, some worshipping the Bradách Pantheon. Despite their usually typical occupations, they put a large emphasis on Warfare, Raiding and Combat, which is how Bradáchs gain popularity and fame within their societies. Their unique culture is also carried into their government, which is ruled by a Rí, also called King. Also, there is a Derwydd Rí, also called Druid King, who is in-charge of all things to do with the Gods. These are two of the most powerful peoples in the government, but there is also the Bradán, who is the heir to the Rí, but not necessarily his son or family. What is most unique about the Bradách is their emphasis on the community and it's say. The Rí is chosen by the people's choice, most commonly the most battle-tested and intelligent chosen, which is the same for the Derwydd Rí, although that title is chosen by the other Derwydd. Finally, the Derwydd are the Druids, who are responsible for up-holding the will of the Gods by hosting the rituals, sacrifices and all else considered holy. For someone to become a Druid, the Derwydd Rí may decide if someone may become one, which is usually based on their intelligence and commitment to the Gods. The Bradách Pantheon Since the Bradách people are Pagan, they follow multiple Gods and Goddesses; Mormaer - Goddess of all the deities. Goddess of Sacrifice and Fortune Belatucadros - God of War, Hunting and the Weather Belisama - Goddess of the Sea, Agriculture and Peace Sirona - Goddess of Fertility, Health, Love and the Sun Myrddin - God of Knowledge, Wisdom, Planning and Magic. Also the God of the Undead. The Bradách also have Gods for their own Clans. Currently, Cadeyrn is the only Clan; Tuath Cadeyrn's God - Bendigeidfran - The Giant God of Kings, Resolve and Decisiveness.
