  2. THE YONG PING ARMY the Warriors of Yong Ping DEFINITION The People’s Army of Yong Ping, also named the Yong Ping Army, are a force of volunteering and conscripted citizens alongside allied mercenaries who have chosen to take up arms in the name of protecting the people of Yong Ping. Whether it be against an internal or external threat, the YPA and its Soldiers are purpose-trained to their specific duties. The most soldiers or regular ranks are familiarly known as Zhànshì or Lion Guard, whilst the commissioned officers are known as Guān or Dragon Guard. The Army has a strict code of honor, which all soldiers regardless of rank must follow. The soldiers stand as a representation of Yong Ping itself, alongside its history and its population. Hence they must portray utmost honor and bravery in every given scenario before them. The Yong Ping Army is divided into two Regiments. Those being the Zhànshì Regiment and the Bushi Regiment. The soldiers and officers of the Zhànshì Regiment specialize in siege work alongside community services, while the counterparts in the Bushi Regiment are trained and exercised specifically in the art of cavalry and tax collection. Both Regiments have a unique culture within them, yet follow the same ranking structure and code of honor: Their purpose is twofold; To serve and protect Yong Ping. HISTORY Formed as a defensive volunteer force conscripted from the City’s population, the Yong Ping Army has stood proudly as a protective barrier against all dangers and threats posed against the people of Yong Ping for many years. The Tianrui zhànshì have long stood a bulwark against that which would harm their people, serving as protectors and monster hunters in the past. With the growth of numbers in their countrymen joining them in the West though, they soon realized they alone could not uphold this duty alone. Tianrui Ren saw to the establishment and training of a civilian defense force in their then resident district in Talon's Port, a group which would be known as the Tai Ping People's Army. The militia at the time was aided in numbers as needed by the Icathian Company, an ally who continues to stand by Yong Ping and her people in valued service to this day. With an even further surge in population and founding of Yong Ping, the YPA was formally established and the handbook written as a guide of conduct and service for all enlisted. New supply requisition was contracted out to the local San Xiong Di Company, outfitting the ranks with the finest the city had to offer. It was also during this time that two main regiments were established. The Zhànshì, a regiment of Li-Ren under the command of then Duhu Tinarui Ren specializing in siege equipment and civil service; and the Bushi, a regiment of Oyashimans under the command of then Sōchō Masamune Musashi specializing in cavalry and tax collection. Whilst specializing in different categories, the two served the same purpose and remain flexible in duty to fill needs as required. In modern Yong Ping, the Zhànshì regiment serves as the sole pillar of the YPA in both law enforcement and city defense under the command of Duhu Tianrui Ryu. Stationed in the east wall side Long Keep, the crimson and gold uniform can be seen patrolling all districts as symbols of safety and security in the Jade State. BENEFITS After joining the Army of Yong Ping, the soldiers receive a number of benefits. These are: ⦁ A tax reduction for housing within Yong Ping ⦁ Yearly payment in form of minae ⦁ Free healthcare for treatments of any kind ⦁ Material benefits for the soldier’s specific needs ⦁ Free equipment maintained by the Army ⦁ Access to facilities and amenities of Long Keep HOW TO JOIN To join the Yong Ping Army, fill out the following form with your information: Minecraft Username: Discord Username: (Can be omitted from public application if sent via forum PM) Character Name: Character Age: Citizenship: (Yes/No) Reason for application:

  7. CELEBRATION OF NATIONHOOD (Kunisato Utagawa. Kokugikan. 1853. Triptych Color Woodblock Print. Far Eastern Museum, Stockholm.) Our History For the past eight years the people of Yong Ping have sacrificed blood and sweat to bring us here today. Our people began as a humble caravan of migrants, fleeing a dark and colored past. But the pain of many years before is long since gone. The Cathant is but a faint memory in the back of the oldest elves' minds, and the separation of Li-Ren and Oyashiman are equally distant. For the past eight years the people of Yong Ping have worked immeasurably, giving their all so that their people may be safe and experience the new comforts that their home now brings to them. With a robust culture that reflects its diverse people, the arts of Yong Ping are shown in museums across the lands. Our merchants travel far and wide, and our goods find themselves in the homes of the northernmost towns of Alamaris. (Hiroshige Utagawa. Mariko, 20th Station. 1832. Color Woodblock Print.) The People of Yong Ping The backbone of the people of Yong Ping are the farmers and tradesmen, or the San Xiong Di. They feed the people and make wares that serve the people of Yong Ping. From the great walls that shield the city to the weapons in the army, finally in the food sold at innumerable stalls across the city, the humble laborers are celebrated and valued for their work. Next, the merchants are a lively folk. Providing trinkets and materials for common folk to buy, merchants help bring the world to Yong Ping. Whether it be the finest jewelry or Nordlandic decorations, merchants have found a way to provide. Serving the people is an equally noble task as any, and that is no different in Yong Ping. The government has expanded rapidly, with volunteers and officials filling the ranks of every hall of the Great House. Facilitating every aspect of life, these often unseen workers oil the gears of the machine of bureaucracy to keep Yong Ping alive. A Declaration of Sovereignty Today, we the people of Yong Ping, are proud to declare ourselves an equal of any people or polity on Alamaris. Our claims are settled, and our lands defended. We see a bright future for our people, and as such, must elevate ourselves on the world stage. Today we see it fit to declare ourselves The Jade State of Yong Ping. We claim the city of Yong Ping and her fertile fields. We claim the coasts to our sides and the fields north and east. With this declaration, we wish to secure our place in the world, and in history.

  9. ORPHANS ADOPTION ACT [Year 15th of the Second Age, Malin’s Welcome] In the event that an Orphan decides to reside within the City State of Yong Ping, this Act will bring into place support structures to help them settle into the community. 一。 We hereby define the term ‘Orphan’ as a personage yet to reach the age of adulthood [18] and lacks an existing guardian or parent. This also includes children who have not been claimed by either parent, regardless if the parent is a Yong Ping citizen. 二。Orphans will be taken under the Care of the State, with food and shelter provided. In return, the Orphan will provide service for the State, whether that be military or government related. 三。If an Adult wishes to adopt an Orphan, they must obtain the consent of the Orphan first and acquire an adoption form from any Officer of the Ministry of Justice. 四。Once adopted, the Orphan is expected to take their Guardian’s family name and register under the family name registry. If later on the guardian and dependent wish to separate, they will have to return the Orphan back to the State’s Care if the Orphan is yet to become an adult. 五。This Act is primarily aimed to ensure that children without guardians are properly cared for and raised with a means to support themselves upon reaching adulthood. 六。This Act will come into effect from Year 16th of the Second Age. Signed, Li Xiuying Minister of Justice [OOC: TLDR if you are an orphan you’ll be a state worker until adopted.]
