  1. THE REFORMATION OF SUTICA Issued at Year 42069 of the Second Age With our citizens growing more and more weary of the Sutican title being held in an unlanded state, a call has been made by the Lurinites to reform The Free Trade State of Sutica once more and crown Mika Anarion as its rightful ruler. THE SUTICAN CLAIM With the Anarion family holding a claim and the current Lurinite ruler having ruled twice before, only to be exiled from leadership through unlawful methods, still claims the Sutican throne as his own for he leads the Suticans in his successor state. With the Sutican people backing his claim and the lack of independent land held by the Sutican title, it is hereby claimed and usurped from the incapable in favor of the new Trade Prince of Sutica, Mika Anarion.

  2. The Brotherhood Purpose The Brotherhood is an organisation currently attached to the Yellow Cross with the mission to contain or eradicate any and all darkspawn which pose a threat to the general populous of the realms. Going to any lengths necessary in order to achieve their goals in preserving life and keeping the innocent safe. However, those that stand in the way of the brotherhood may face judgement, and in some cases, punishment. This purpose is given to them via directives that the Atronachs follow to the best of their ability, applying experience and gained knowledge to each scenario and task that they may come across. -A brotherhood Atronach watching over Lurin territories. Ideology The Brotherhood typically strive to bring balance to the realm, although some constructs have chosen to abstain from worshipping any deity, most however have chosen to follow the concept of the void itself, being that it is the method of their creation. These Atronachs revere void as the beginning and the end of all that exists and that which has yet to exist. Therefore they think of the void as the embodiment of balance. Due to this belief in balance, it is on rare occasion that the Brotherhood will come to an agreement with groups of darkspawn that will assist in defeating threats deemed more dire by choosing the lesser evil. Each Atronach hailing from the State of Lurin is able to speak the Lurinite language. Typically being used to relay information to one another when the Atronachs don’t wish to risk the spread of information and/ or express certain emotions. However they still may speak this language in casual conversation due to it being originally constructed by the Atronachs of Lurin. Structure The structure of the Brotherhood revolves around the age of the Atronachs. The older Atronachs are considered more advanced than younger ones. Because of this, the elders of the Brotherhood are considered the leading force. This however, only applies to the Atronachs who have proven themselves and are capable through experience and ability. In these cases these special Atronachs are given a unique set of plates that identify them as leaders. Although primarily made up of Atronachs made by the forgers of Lurin. The Brotherhood do accept other constructs into their ranks. This can range from Sorvians to Golems, as long as they share the same goal of eradicating evil from the realms and keeping balance. The brotherhood will gladly take them in and treat them as one of their own. Atronach Classes Ŝtalo Class Atronachs The standard class of Atronachs which have been equipped with steel plates. This is the class of all recruit Atronachs as well as some leadership Atronachs by choice. Imiti Class Atronachs A class of Atronachs that have been equipped with Arcanium gauntlets, helmets, or other parts. Mimicking either elements or other substances chosen by the Atronach themself or the forger. These Atronachs typically take on a less direct combat role. Malhela Class Atronachs A class of Atronachs equipped with Rokodra plating. These Atronachs are rarer and serve a vanguard role due to their durability and the unique properties of the metal. Atronachs that fall under this class can be considered to be one of the more aggressive constructs compared to their brothers, say for the Detruanto Class. Fajro Class Atronachs An advanced version of the Ŝtalo Class Atronachs equipped with Daemonsteel plating. These uncommon Atronachs are usually fire or ice aligned. Ŝanĝita Class Atronachs A blanket subclass of Atronachs who have had their platings altered in some way or additions made to their current structure. This can include steel that has been enchanted to be denser or have plates that have been enchanted with spells. Detruanto Class Atronachs A class of Atronachs considered looked down upon by the Brotherhood. Although still considered part of the Brotherhood, they are rogue entities which have no aligned impera and are fully independent, able to follow their own rules and beliefs. These are often seen in black plating. These are considered the most unpredictable and dangerous class of Atronachs, approach with caution. This classification also applies to Atronachs possessing outdated directives. The Brotherhood Directives The Following are the current directives for the Atronachs of the brotherhood, say for a select few Atronachs that fall under the Detruanto classification. I. - Never kill unless granted the go ahead by the appropriate level of authority. Otherwise detaining is your first priority. II. - Never turn against your creator or The Most Serene State of Lurin with violence or hostile intent. III. - Always follow the chain of command, somebody lower in the ranks can’t overrule someone higher in the ranks. If no appropriate chain of command is available the other directives take priority. IV. - Always finish a task given unless commanded to do otherwise by the appropriate rank. V. - Always sustain yourself at any cost if threatened to be destroyed or attacked through physical means. VI. - Spooks and undead are unlawful beings and should never be trusted in any capacity. If possible and acceptable by the law of the lands, terminate them. VII. - Study the law of the lands you wish to visit, abide by them and operate appropriately. If you do not wish to abide by the law of those lands, you may not visit there unless it is under supervision of a high ranking member or under direct order to break this directive temporarily. VIII. - During the free time outside of orders you are to explore your personal goals and develop yourself as a living being.
  3. The Vexation [!] Tap, tap.. Tap, tap.. Down in the meager light of the deep skulked silhouettes unknown, scrambling further into the blackness. There below, in a place obscured and discreet lay heaps of jumbled splendor; the sparse light that the peculiar dungeon retained donned them in exquisite glint… Clang! Another trophy joined its fellows that littered the floor. Some contorted giggling wandered the crowdless halls, reverberating from the little shadows - some still scampered round the heaps and added in the new souvenirs with jangles and jingles, whilst others clambered atop of a cluster of pillars and settled there high. Their eyes- nigh shinning in the dimness- watched over their riches. As for the world high above, - the world where common folk lingered merrily - alas, some gloomy news blemished everyone’s mood, for much of their own goods had gone missing. The little trinkets, some weapons and baubles vanished over the night. Beneath the windows of some houses lay shards of glass, and where they once had been standing lodge gaps.. The word is quick; long before noon the rumours sprawled across the city, and a certain elf cussed out something incoherent as the word caught his ears. He snapped out of leisure snoozing and plodded outside. His stroll soon came to an end, for he entered the HQ of Centurions, where he began arranging something, rummaging through the armor and equipment, and scribbling something on numerous parchments..
  4. TO THE MEN IN RED Issued at Year 118 of the Second Age Earlier on this day, men in red and black entered Lurin as our gates are always open during times of peace, however, this trust has been abused by these four men who witnesses to have claimed to taken a woman before sprinting out the gates before reinforcements were called. EYE FOR AN EYE The saying is that an eye for an eye makes the world go blind, however, as Lurin is a forgiving state, they will only be punished for the crimes they have committed according to the Codex of Lurin within our territories, willingly or not. Kidnapping, a class B crime Disturbance of Peace, a class D crime General Battery, a class C crime Aggravated Assault, a class B crime Verbal Harassment of a Higher Official, a class C crime Leading up to a fine of 1250 mina per person present, or the alternatives: -Execution of all -2000 mina worth of labor or goods per person -Two limbs, two digits and a final non-lethal cut per person May this be done peacefully and swiftly without escalation. You have one Esht Week to respond. Eternal We Stand, Eshtael keeps Balance signed, The Silver Lubba
  5. THE COURTS OF LURIN Issued at Year 117 of the Second Age While The Most Serene State of Lurin is still young, it is seen fit to reform the courts to benefit the state they belong to in an attempt to create strife among peers to progress further than ever possible. With this sudden expansion of influence of the people over the state, it must be noted that the state will provide a counterweight in the form of simple requirements to be considered an active member of Lurin’s courts. THE NOBILITY OF LURIN While the court of Lurin is filled with nobility of varying degrees and the average citizen it should be noted that nobility only applies to one person and only in special cases a family is considered an integral part of Lurin. High Nobility: High nobility is often seen as the most important sect of people in Lurin, though they only get limited privileges compared to the average citizen. Vassal Leaders of various levels Vassal leaders are those granted a plot of land to develop the lands of The Silver Lubba for them and establish settlements for their people or potentially fortify the borders of the territories of Lurin. Often vassal leaders can be found as a voice upon the council and within reason govern their own lands with a certain amount of autonomy in exchange for their service. Division and Office Leaders With the rather unique structure of Lurin’s governance, the various divisions and offices are all granted their ability through The Silver Lubba and have their leaders assigned much through the same process. Division leaders are in every way above office leaders though fall in the same ranking of high nobility due to their importance in a functional state. Division leaders are often at the forefront of progress and military matters which they will need to execute with success as failure is not an option within the state at this level of leadership. The lack of a division leader to a division is often filled back up by the lower ranking members of the division, however, if it is found that incompetency is rampant, The Silver Lubba will personally lead the lacking division temporarily. Office leaders are maintaining the state and their institutions to keep the citizenry engaged, educated and healthy. When a position in these offices aren’t filled then often The SIlver Lubba steps in to personally ensure it stays functional. Previous High Council and Silver Lubbas Previous members of the High Council and Silver Lubbas are viewed as highly experienced members of Lurinite society, making them extremely valuable as advisors to the state and as a reward for their service they are granted their position as high noble. THE REQUIREMENTS OF HIGH NOBILITY To become a high noble within the territories of Lurin one must dedicate themselves to the state and its people with many paths laid out for even regular citizens to work their way up to this level of nobility. (A noble of Lurin ensuring the presence of their levymen) Minor Nobility: Minor nobility is often made up of people who have helped the state less directly or are not yet influential enough to be considered a high noble. Family Estate Holders With the nobility of Lurin working different from most other forms, only the one who holds the family estate is considered a minor noble to avoid stretching out the system to where everyone could be considered a noble somehow. Within reason the patriarch or matriarch of an influential family is the preferred candidate for holding these family estates. Large Company Holders Large companies within Lurin are considered minor nobility to empower them to more easily convey their desires within the territories for the sake of progress. Large companies need to be granted this title of minor nobility and only one leader per company is able to hold this title. The Silver Lubba’s Family The family of The Silver Lubba is most important to the state, some of these individuals considered princes and princesses if they are a direct descendant by blood to the first degree from The Silver Lubba themself. Though regardless of this, they are still merely minor nobles to limit their power within the state unless they manage to work their way up the ranks like every other citizen of Lurin. Lubba Knights Lubba Knights are an integral part of the Lurinite military, providing prowess of both mind and body to the state as their most elite forces of the realm. Lubba Knights are chosen personally by The Silver Lubba to maintain a force of only the best Lurin can find within their territories. Personal Advisors of The Silver Lubba Personal advisors to The Silver Lubba are often invited over personally to council meetings to bring their unique perspective or expertise to courts. Though not anyone with expertise becomes a personal advisor, often minor nobility is granted to those who repeatedly are requested to show their perspective upon certain issues. THE REQUIREMENTS OF MINOR NOBILITY To become a minor noble within the territories of Lurin one must be proficient at their trade or have value to the state as a whole. Each one of these positions bar the family options are achievable within reasonable time and dedication by any citizen of Lurin. Additionally they are needed to bring forth one person to fill up a position within the divisions of Lurin with families considered as one entity, refusing this requirement will result in remaining a regular citizen rather than minor noble. Upon achieving this first step up into nobility, a mundane weapon of choice may be requested to The Silver Lubba themself who will provide the holder of this title with what they desire to use. This weapon becomes a symbol of service to the state and is of great importance to the holder of it as the loss of this weapon is a great tragedy upon the banner this noble comes from. Furthermore beyond this symbol, the fresh noble will need to provide a banner for the halls of The Silver Lubba, representing them, their family or company in the courts of Lurin and is seen as a gift of great prestige from The Silver Lubba to have their banner present. THE PEOPLE OF LURIN While our courts are filled with nobility of varying levels, it should be noted that citizens are often seen wandering in with issues they have found or ideas they wish to bring to light. Our citizens are encouraged to participate within the courts of Lurin to aid us in our governance as if it were their own duty to do so. Periodically a time for these suggestions and issues is hosted by a member of the high council of The Silver Lubba themself. (Lurinite court being held within the designated room) These moments of public court for the citizenry are a right given by The Silver Lubba and must be held at least once per Esht Month, however, it is preferred to host these bi-weekly for a more effective means of dedicated communication outside of conversations held directly with the various council members. Once a public court is called for with a location provided for it, the citizens may bring forth their word without issue unless in direct violation with the current laws. THE MILITARY OF LURIN With the courts set up within reason in our Most Serene State of Lurin, the military duties of our people may not be forgotten in times of prosperity. Without a necessity to maintain an army in the eyes of our citizens it has been seen fit to take a necessary step towards maintaining a proper standing army made up from people rather than the constructs our state provides us so the constructs may focus upon their primary goals instead of having to act as our military. (A Silver Centurion marching forth into enemy territory) This new system includes full participation from our nobility as they are now required to send forth at least one person from their group to be granted and maintain their position. As easily as the noble status is granted, it may be stripped at the same speed if the bare minimum is not met. This one person put forth must be capable of learning, following orders and be able bodied. These people do not necessarily need to be soldiers of the state, they merely have to participate within the government’s system of divisions. Each person put forth can choose their own division to join willingly to maintain a minimal amount of staff within each division with relative ease and keeping ourselves capable in times of conflict. THE ETIQUETTE OF LURIN The etiquette of our Most Serene State of Lurin is rather simple with the rule of thumb being that humility is praised above all and the lack thereof shunned within the courts. Within Lurin a citizen and The Silver Lubba share the burden of the state in different ways, though never must one raise themselves too high to estrange the people of our state as chaos ensues. Every citizen has their worth provided to the state, the lack of doing so may put them in a less favorable light. Additionally, the laws of Lurin will always be maintained by the citizens of our Most Serene State of Lurin as the lack of discipline will be dealt with accordingly. Furthermore, there are simple phrases within court one could use to show respect to the culture of the Lurinites or used to disrespect a citizen greatly. “May Eshtael Bless you” - A simple phrase to wish good health upon them. “May your scales never tip” - Wishing someone stability and prosperity in life. “The Atronachs Missed You” - Accusing someone of being vile in nature. “May Tahariae take care of you” - A phrase to wish someone dead. Along with these simple phrases, there is a good chance they will be spoken out with the Lurinite language to ensure foreign bodies know little of what is being spoken of. However, even among Lurinites this language is rare to be spoken as many only speak it to express the true meaning of their words. THE FASHION OF LURIN Most other settlements and nations of the realm often have difficulty finding out who is deemed important and who is not within Lurin, partially this is because of the odd fashion found within Lurin and on their citizens. Often they are seen wearing their work uniform or a modified version of it for more formal meetings, however, there is still the presence of informal clothing among the people who lack a position within the state. Often viewed as a shame, however, if they manage to become successful without the state then they might as well have earned their share into becoming a minor noble or perhaps make their own clothing for ease. (A Silver Centurion with modified uniform entering court) THE DIPLOMACY OF LURIN As Lurin grows over time, there have been a couple preferences and noted down expressions during the diplomatic process which could be more efficient or avoided entirely. With this revelation, a small list has been constructed to give some oversight for future diplomatic meetings. -Bringing anyone other than your leader or someone authorized to officiate pacts autonomously to negotiate terms is a waste of time and effort. -Bringing more than two soldiers to a meeting is an act of aggression. Additional diplomats are an exception if they bring something of use to the table. -A pact with another nation might end up being pushed through the council and shareholders to see a general census before accepting, declining or altering the terms. -Every pact must be made with both parties present in the room, drafts must be prepared beforehand to indicate a clear goal of what the other entity wishes to achieve. -The offering or exchanging of gifts is discouraged during meetings unless they have a true cultural value to avoid muddling diplomacy with nepotism and other forms of bastardized politics. (Diplomats on their way to the Lurinite courts) THE CULTURAL STANDARDS OF THE COURTS The start of court within the territories of Lurin are rather simple, once a time and place have been chosen then as soon as the citizens, indentured servants, council members and nobles of Lurin start wandering in then the leading figure within the room may announce the start with a simple phrase: “The Serene Prevail Today, May Your Voices Be Heard” Followed by a gesture to either summon the first person before the leading figure or to perhaps announce something for all of Lurin to know. The courts of Lurin are considered to be in a more basic form as titles matter little within these courts and competency is always preferred over them. This unusual form enables leadership and nobility to be spoken at by their first name without mention of their title regardless if they agree or not to prevent bastardization of the process of court. The court only finishes after a simple phrase has been spoken out by the leading figure of this court, usually the one who summoned court: “Eternal We Stand, Eshtael Keeps Balance” Once this phrase is spoken, no nobility, leadership or citizens are needed to stay within the room where court was held, granting opportunity for less global and more personal matters to be discussed if deemed necessary to do so. Furthermore, as Lurinite court is considered more basic in nature, it should be noted that at all times only those requesting to speak up will be listened to, the lack of this basic thought in repeated fashion will enable the Centurions in removing them from the premises. Naturally, this rule has exceptions if the words spoken out are widely considered to be slanderous or vile in nature. Eternal We Stand, Eshtael Keeps Balance signed, The Silver Lubba
  6. THE SILVER TRADE Issued at Year 116 of the Second Age As there have been marks upon both states inflicted through conflict of the past, a recent more open approach has been adopted by both states to amend relations through trade and non-aggression for the improving of both states’ wealth and ensuring peace in the south to last. On this day Mika Anarion paid a visit to Luthien Maeyr'onn as a letter had arrived to him concerning a council member who had approached them for a potential trade agreement. Discussions were fruitful and both parties came to acceptable terms to form The Silver Trade pact for its set duration ARTICLE I: TRADE I. The Most Serene State of Lurin agrees to provide a location within their walls for The Silver State of Haelun’or to sell their goods II. The Silver State of Haelun’or agrees to provide a location within their walls for The Most Serene State of Lurin to sell their goods III. Disagreements with the goods sold can be cleared up among signatories. ARTICLE II: NON-AGGRESSION I. The Most Serene State of Lurin agrees to a clause of non-aggression upon The Silver State of Haelun’or for the duration of the pact. II. The Silver State of Haelun’or agrees to a clause of non-aggression upon The Most Serene State of Lurin for the duration of the pact. III. Both signatories agree that upon suspected violation they make sure to clear up the situation among each other before potentially declaring the pact null. ARTICLE III: DURATION I. The duration of this pact lasts for 12 years, till the end of year 128 of the second age. II. The pact may be declared null and void if either signatory violates any of the articles of the pact. ARTICLE IV: DARKSPAWN I. The signatories pledge to lend all resources disposable to them in their attempts against Darkspawn. They pledge to work together in the pursuit of this mutual goal. signed, The Silver Lubba SOHAER of The Silver State of Haelun’or, Luthien Maeyr’onn.

  7. EDUCATIONAL STATE FORGING ACT Issued at Year 116 of the Second Age With the ideas of what we wish our culture to shift towards penned on paper, an effort must be made to make this into a reality. Industry without a blacksmith is simply impossible and with such The Most Serene State of Lurin has decided to provide a workshop for any and all who wish to visit to learn about the various techniques of craftsmanship. EDUCATE THE MASSES For now the education on forging shall be limited to steel alone with the mere basics as every person that shows up must be able to learn from the ground up how to forge and maintain their tools properly. The initial classes will be taught by Mika Anarion himself and potentially later on a skilled smith is wanting to take over these courses to continue cultural strife towards a more industry capable population. Tools, material and space to forge will be provided by the state to a limited number of people depending on the amount of forges available. First lesson will be held the next stone day at the Workforce HQ. Eternal we Stand, Eshtael Keeps Balance signed, The Silver Lubba
  8. LURIN WINDOW INSURANCE ACT Issued at Year 116 of the Second Age Due to the increasing amounts of shattered windows and the solidarity of the state to its people, The Most Serene State of Lurin has decided to open up insurance for their citizens. As glass is a resource not many have on hand to quickly repair a window due to the labor intensive process of creating perfect glass panes and the state having the workforce to back them up in such a process, it is seen fit to provide the citizens with repairs. GLASS FOR THE CITIZENRY This deal between state and citizen comes at a bare minimum cost where as long as they pay their taxes their windows shall be patched up with a glass of their choosing. Failure to contact the state for your broken windows for a prolonged duration will fall under our general negligence law found at general safety, 2a. The Payment of tax has to be completed before any repairs may be done on behalf of the state, the one holding the property will be able to avoid this by creating and installing the window themselves. There is a possibility that your window will be repaired without your knowledge initially, however, a note will be placed in the inhabitant's mailbox notifying of a potential break in and offered a potential modification in design to avoid future window smashing for potential invasions of property. DEFENSE OF THE STATE With this alarming amount of mischief and failed robberies, The Most Serene State of Lurin will expand efforts to add new constructs to the brotherhood to more frequently patrol the city and make it clear to any who attempt to do so again will be unpleasantly surprised by increasing the severity of this crime temporarily to a class A crime without the escape of bailing yourself out, leaving only blood payment as an option for the following till the 120th year of the second age. Additionally, The Most Serene State of Lurin wishes to revitalize their efforts on expanding The Silver Centurions to limit reliance on construct production. Those Willing to join the cause of keeping our streets safe can contact John or The Silver Lubba for more information. Eternal we Stand, Eshtael Keeps Balance signed, The Silver Lubba
  9. MISCHIEF MAKERS WANTED Issued at Year 114 of the Second Age There has been an alarming rate of mischief going on within the city of Lurin, making it hard to go through the daily lives of our citizenry without minor inconveniences being bestowed upon them by an unknown source. As normally this is not much of an issue, we have found evidence that it is scaling drastically and makes it a necessity for the state to take action. THE SEARCH FOR MISCHIEF We have collected multiple reports of missing items, such as jewelry, scraps of food, trinkets made from precious metals and the steel tools of varying occupations. While theft is something rarely struggled with due to the security provided, it has caught the state by surprise to have such a spree of crime occur while on the other hand there is an immense increase in mischievous behavior that does not align with the citizenry. Everyone within the city is affected by this spree of mischief from the moving of writing utensils to the other side of the room to having their door jammed with a metal pin stolen from the workforce to having a potato thrown at your feet while having a conversation in the square. The Silver Centurions will be on the case for this strange spree of mischief and we hope to report to our citizens about our findings.

  10. ON THE CURED Issued at Year 112 of the Second Age After receiving the missive regarding our citizen, Sarah Artenin, of being a vampire, the Lubba’s Council was in shock. Thankful to the shamans that they cured her of her vile disease, however, there was another part of the missive which did not resonate with the citizens of Lurin as Sarah was made to forcefully live in Nor’asath or be hunted down and executed. The council gathered today to draft up an official response regarding the situation and express their displeasure to this foreign policy. ON THE ABDUCTION OF SARAH ARTENIN As Lurin does not want to waste further ink and blood on this matter, while we agree with your sentiment against darkspawn, the holding of our citizens against their will is a vile act and The Most Serene State of Lurin hereby declares a simple warning: The attempt at a repeated taking of Sarah Artenin will result in conflict of degrees the balance of Eshtael will allow. May the wisdom of the shamans of Nor’Asath and The Iron Horde be everlasting and conflict kept to a minimum so all our lands may experience the prosperity it deserves. signed, The Silver Lubba

  12. An Explanation So, to start this off I want to say: this is not a hate post, not a rant post (okay maybe a little bit), I dunno just - nothing like that. I mean to offend absolutely nobody this is to be read in a lighthearted and wholly honest tone, apologies in advance if I somehow do. Community Team Now, Rose, what in the **** did you do to get removed from CT in less than a month? Absolutely nothing. I'm not sure if Hogo wants this to get out, but, CT is undergoing reforms - I've already said it publicly in friend broadcast, might as well say it here (Sorry Hogo). I'm really happy that reforms are going on, I think that it's great that changes that are needed will finally take place - and I think the plan Hogo has for it is a good plan. However, being removed has taken a bit of a toll on me mentally. Now, when I say this; it's not that it's on my mind 24/7 and I'm seething about being removed from the team, it's simply that whenever I look at LotC nowadays, it makes me physically feel like shit because I've lost all motivation to play the game. It's kind of like giving a toddler candy and immediately swiping it away from them just to see their hopes of enjoying something great crash and burn. That's just how I feel on the matter, I feel extremely lost. I've thought about joining another team, those being MT and ET. The things that stopped me: ET The hoard of applications to story Not being sure if I'd thrive there like I did with CT Not being sure if I'd truly like the job MT Not being sure if they're accepting And both having a similar reason of: no motivation. Either way, Hogo is a great guy - and one of my best friends, I hold absolutely nothing against him for doing his job. Simple as. Motivation A huge problem that I keep running into with LOTC is that the main reason I'm playing is to create a narrative, this is not the case for most of the server. Everytime I turn around there is some person trying to be a protagonist or just playing to win - and there's nothing wrong with that, do whatever makes you happy, do whatever makes you have fun (except shady shit). In fact, one of the only times I played LotC for a narrative is when I was doing Karkosa events with AlmightySaucer. Huge props to that ST for making an intriguing and active eventline that I honestly had a lot of fun with - I craved those events, those were great. He's also one of the first people I've seen play to lose. Anyways, it's just that a lot of the server isn't really playing the way I am and that makes it hard for me personally to enjoy my roleplay. This is not something I want people to change and I'm not trying to be like grrr why in the **** are you playing this way and not that way, it's simply how I feel currently. Conclusion Basically, I'm going to be not-so-active on LotC. I'll log in sometimes, as I do have an active and new CA that I wish to keep. So maybe you'll see me roleplaying on there - but it won't be a lot until some newfound motivation suddenly keeps me hyperfixated on the server again. Thank you to everyone who has made an impact on me (which is a lot of people so I won't list names), it's been lovely being able to interact and have fun when I did. This isn't really a goodbye, just a 'see you soon'. I'll be around, just, not as much as I used to be. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to reach out. Just because I'm not CT anymore, doesn't mean I will not help you. I want to. Also! If you wish to leave a comment, ask a few things, maybe debate with me on the silly 'play to win or play to make a narrative' argument - go ahead. Just, don't be a ****. <3

  14. LURINITE MINING OPERATION Issued at Year 111 of the Second Age With our soaring levels of wealth it has been decided to invest it back into the people of the state, providing further jobs and making local goods cheaper through the acquisition of a profitable mine near the city. THE OPEN MINE OF LURIN The mine of Lurin will be open to all who have the equipment to properly delve within, however, at the end of your mining trip you will be faced with the question if you will sell your acquired wealth to the local state provided stall at a decent rate or perhaps buy resources from it during a shortage of material. May this newfound acquisition of resources provide further wealth and prosperity to the citizens of Lurin through trade and craft. signed, The Silver Lubba
  15. MEAT FOR LURINITES ACT Issued at Year 111 of the Second Age With a recent expansion of the production of animal products and our exports being overflown with meats, Lurin has taken note of the necessity of increasing welfare for its people by distributing our excess to the taxpayers of Lurin before our storages overflow with the meats we produce locally. MEAT IN THE MAILBOX Our most faithful citizens of Lurin have aided us establish ourselves properly in the south and with this the standard of living for the Lurinites must increase accordingly. While we will not hand out grain, potatoes and vegetables due to our production simply being too low to hand out on top of our exports, we will feed our people the best we can, with steak and beef. Lurin citizens who have paid their taxes are entitled to a pouch of steak and beef in their mailbox if one is available. In some cases the tax is lower than the price of the goods provided, though we will stand by our worth. signed, The Silver Lubba Lumia Anarion, High Steward of Lurin
  16. ATTACK OF THE WOLFMAN Issued at Year 111 of the Second Age Long The Centurions have slumbered, alas the fiends have not. Time to arouse has come, for the peril is enclosing. With the recent assault upon the citizenry of The Most Serene State midst daylight by a hairy humanoid beast of immense size, it is apparent that too long have the folk dawdled. Too long have we been turning a blind eye to the danger that steadily drew into our lands that we thought was below us. The nefarious beasts emerged within our home - heinous wolfmen came attacking, and then fled into their lairs after being met with our citizenry. Heed, for the time has come - The Centurions are recruiting. The aspiring candidates for recruitment are either to reach out to the Silver Lubba, or The Captain of Centurions, or one amongst the officers. Alternatively, the candidates can send letters to the HQ, stating their name and the reason why they wish to enlist. Those letters will be reviewed by the Centurions' captain himself, and the reply will be sent back shortly. The time to defend our home has arrived. signed, The Silver Lubba John, Captain of The Silver Centurions

    6 Months Q&A

    Well, I hadn’t expected the time to fly by so quickly. I’m not gonna lie, I have no idea if it’s like “AMA” or “Q&A” or something to do these posts, but I’m going to go with the one I actually know the meaning to. Please fulfill my forum rep farm and ask me questions: can be about anything.
  19. THE LURIN FAST TRAVEL ACT Issued at Year 110 of the Second Age With our move away from Lubba's Keep, we sadly enough could not bring along the majority of our livestock, this included our most esteemed purebred white horses that the band has used in every battle they have faced. Recently we have discovered that some of our mercenary hires kept these horses from our days of conflict and quickly pooled them back together to raise the next generation of Lubba Chargers for our guardsmen, workers, government and citizens to use. The Sale of Lurin’s Excess Horses With this discovery, we soon found ourselves with an excess of horses capable of aiding our citizens and breaking even on the less desired horses which are noted down as Lubba Palfrey. Lurin hereby is selling parts of the excess horses for the following prices: For Citizens: Lubba Palfrey: 10 mina Lubba Charger: 30 mina For non-Citizens Lubba Palfrey: 20 mina Lubba Charger: 30 mina Saddles sold separately at the price of 10 mina. Centurions of Lurin will be provided with armour for their horses upon the purchase of a saddle for their Lubba Palfrey or Charger in the good will of these horses being used in the defense of the state. The continuous loss of one’s horse as a Centurion of Lurin may result in being barred from becoming part of the cavalry in future conflicts and will not be granted this good willed horse armour. Additionally, those who are deemed the most loyal of citizens who might find themselves without proper transportation have the chance to be gifted a horse to ensure their travels are safe and swift. signed, The Silver Lubba
  20. THE LURIN CULTURAL ASSIMILATION PROGRAM Issued at Year 110 of the Second Age As we have noticed an influx of new people entering Lurin being oblivious to our ways of life and customs, it is time to write them down for those who desire to read about such. The Sutican Mercenary Origins of Lurin With the gradual fall of the Sutican government before their eventual replacement, there were plenty who moved along with The Silver Lubba to find new fortunes and established The Silver Lubba Band which roamed around Almaris doing contracts and settling where they could. Now having made it to Lurin as the presumed final destination of these wandering mercenaries, they remain with mostly the same structure of government with some various additions to reduce the strain of governing the lands. (Two Titans of the Silver Lubba Band patrolling the mountains of the main continent) (The mountain pass by Sina Hayati) Industrious Modest Glory As the Lurinites originate from a mercenary company, it should not be surprising they all seek something to fulfill their goals, however, each one does so differently now other than a few aspects which are for the majority the same. While there are some different cases per person, it is often seen that a Lurinite seeks to fulfill their tasks on the job and do such as efficiently as possible with the majority of these being more on the industrious side than a stagnant one. Often the only factor that slows down a process is the lack of people that are capable of joining the divisions of the band. However, with this modest attitude often comes some form of recognition of abilities which can open up new paths granted by their division leaders or even The Silver Lubba themself. (A blacksmith from the workforce and his daughter working together) (Blacksmith by Dashinvaine) Clothing of The Most Serene State of Lurin While every person within the state has a different taste in fashion, there is a general census that expensive outfits or jewelry are often a waste of mina, often leaving the average Lurinite with improvised formal clothing or their fanciest uniform during important events. Tailors oftentimes find it hard to be commissioned for anything other than basic clothing or the various state uniforms requested by The Silver Lubba themself and the various division leaders. Diplomatic Customs of Lurin As Lurin grows over time, there have been a couple preferences and noted down expressions during the diplomatic process which could be more efficient or avoided entirely. With this revelation, a small list has been constructed to give some oversight for future diplomatic meetings. -Bringing anyone other than your leader or someone authorized to officiate pacts autonomously to negotiate terms is a waste of time and effort. -Bringing more than two soldiers to a meeting is an act of aggression. Additional diplomats are an exception if they bring something to the table. -A pact with another nation might end up being pushed through the council and shareholders to see a general census before accepting, declining or altering the terms. -Every pact must be made with both parties present in the room, drafts must be prepared beforehand to indicate a clear goal of what the other entity wishes to achieve. -The offering or exchanging of gifts is discouraged during meetings unless they have a true cultural value to avoid muddling diplomacy with nepotism and other forms of bastardized politics. General Government Structure While the eradication of bureaucracy is favorable for efficiency, parts of this system must remain intact to avoid The Silver Lubba from spreading thin governing his lands and executing his missions for the realm. The Silver Lubba The Silver Lubba is the leader of this state and has authority over all that happens within it High Council With The Silver Lubba being spread a little too thin at times even with the existence of the council, a certain level of authority should be granted to act more autonomously to whoever is appointed to join this council. Often these council members are the most notable of the Lubba’s Council, though are often not publicly stated to be from this High Council. Lubba’s Council With such the creation of Lubba’s Council consisting of The Silver Lubba Band’s highest ranking members, personal advisors, high nobility and other offices appointed by The Silver Lubba. Each Division of the Silver Lubba Band is entitled to a seat on the council to more directly communicate their needs and voice their opinions. The following divisions are in place: -The Silver Lubba Band Expeditionary Force -The Lubba Keep Lawyers -The Silver Centurions -The Lubba Medical Force -The Silver Siege Team -The Lubba Band Workforce -The Order of The Lubba The following offices are in place: -The Office of Knowledge -The Office of Stewardry -The Office of Brew and Entertainment -The Office of Conservation -The Office of Rosewood -The Office of Diplomacy -The Office of Unnatural Affairs -The Office of The Yellow Cross -The Office of Culinary Expression The following nobles are in place: High Nobility: -Vassal Leaders of various levels -Division and Office Leaders -Previous High Council and Silver Lubbas Minor Nobility: -Family Estate Holders -Large Company Holders -The Silver Lubba’s Family -Lubba Knights -Personal Advisors of The Silver Lubba (A Lubba Keep Lawyer showing up to court to discuss laws in a heated debate) Shareholders As Lubba’s Council does not encompass all who have brought prosperity to the state, an additional minor council is established to allow new voices to be heard. The Shareholders consist of a majority out of minor nobility who have brought their families or services to these lands and made themselves notable. However, They are not the only ones within this council as Lubba Knights are granted a seat for their dedication to the state as well as notable guilds within the state that were not created by The Silver Lubba themself. High Command Further down the chain of command from The Silver Lubba’s Governmental Structure you will find the chain of the band itself where the highest ranking members and their commanding officers below are represented. These members ensure the function of the state to be in optimal condition and are not limited to the band alone as they could be part of an appointed office created by The Silver Lubba. Governmental Members The members of the Silver Lubba Band and other offices are found here at the bottom of the chain of command, executing tasks and finding themselves to be the bulk of the government. While they are in numbers, the individual is of great value as they are either being trained up for the division they have chosen or served the band for a longer period of time as for without these members there would be little government and chaos would rule the streets. Despise the Dark While not every Lurinite agrees with the overly zealous sentiment of the government towards darkspawn and undead, there is a general census that they should not roam the streets publicly or establish a foothold within our holdings or underground spaces. This sentiment along with some other clear factors such as the undead feeding upon descendants makes Lurin one of the few places that demands a person to be tested for being undead or a vampire before they may purchase a property. Along with this it is required for the government to lay down an aurum line and provide a golden sword for every public building. Sympathizers are often looked down upon or even questioned by local forces to lead them to potential sects that will be investigated and or terminated. (Artwork by @Saun_399) Akin to some sects of holy mages, Lurin has formed their own group to terminate these beings with the group mostly made out of constructs by the name of The Brotherhood which actively seeks out to terminate darkspawn and undead. They operate mostly autonomously with the majority of these constructs following the same set of directives, however it is possible that some of these use an outdated set which allows them to be more liberal in their approach of finding and terminating these creatures. Forge of the Dead As the burial of a corpse is a waste of valuable space, the Lurinites have opted to cremate every corpse in a ceremonious way where the ashes will be merged with iron or steel. After this metal of the dead is made, a close relative can have a dedicated smith forge this ingot into what they desire the deceased to represent. If there are no close relatives present or wanting to claim the deceased metal then they shall remain as an ingot with their name stamped upon it to be archived. However, if they do wish to have something simple such as a tool then the test of the deceased's balance will occur based on the quenching process. If it so happens that the metal warps or even snaps then it is believed the deceased lived an unbalanced life and their afterlife is a torturous existence. If the quenching succeeds however, then the deceased person has lived a balanced life and the afterlife might be bearable. (A dedicated blacksmith hard at work to forge a tool from the dead) Worship The Lurinites often don’t actively participate in religious rituals, however, this does not mean they are not religious as a decent number of them worship an aengul by the name of Eshtael or in some cases prefer to worship Tahariae instead. With these two being the main aenguls that are worshiped, there is still a minority which follows their own with the blessing of the state to allow such to be. Due to a large share of Eshtael worship and believing in the balance, the place of worship for Eshtael is often shared with the other religions out of good faith to co-exist with the others to perform their ceremonies in peace. Courtship While not enforced to any degree, Lurin does practice some form of courtship among their citizenry and nobility where two people optionally decide to entrust the other with an object of importance to them for a prolonged time and accustom themselves to each other over a period of time. To end such courtship they must do so either verbally or through the symbolic act of returning the object of importance to the other and requesting theirs to be returned. If this courtship is deemed successful by both, they may opt to join together in marriage. This marriage however, may be conducted by a religious entity of their choice or they may contact the state to aid them in hosting and approving this festivity in a state marriage. Festivities (A workforce market held in the industry district) (The Simmering Mind by Geeking out over Noblebright) With most Lurinites more focused upon their own goals, festivities are often a neglected side of the culture, though these may occur more frequently during times of prosperity and stability. One of the most common festivities are the tavern nights held every so often where the local population and visitors are bestowed upon with free drinks till they topple over if the bar cuts them off. Following this is not too much of an orthodox festivity, though it brings the populace great joy to attend a local auction to either buy or sell goods and see if they can make new connections throughout. While yet to occur, with the increased size of the workers division of The Silver Lubba Band it has become possible to start dishing out temporary stalls in the industry district and organize a workers market where the local artisans can sell their goods and there would be plenty bartering with merchants from around Almaris who caught wind of such an event. The most rare of all of these festivities are when The Silver Lubba decides to host an event in their own holding where formal attire is required to attend. The Silver Lubba being not much for excess usually avoids these types of pleasantries to focus upon their primary tasks or personal life. Naturally, there are more festivities to be held than listed here, though these are often more situational or forgotten to be listed. signed, The Silver Lubba

  22. A CALL FOR INDUSTRY Issued at Year 106 of the Second Age With the resources of our state increasing more than we can possibly consume at this rate, it will be most valuable to use these resources to be used to fuel the local artisans of Lurin and attract new citizens who wish to exploit this offer on behalf of the workforce. On the matter of encouraging craftsmanship Artisans all around Almaris will be accepted to use a share of our collected resources to fund their projects and day to day endeavors.

Additionally, you will gain access to a general market spot soon to be constructed where you may sell your goods without the weekly taxes. STAND ETERNAL WITH HONOR AND GLORY. signed, The Silver Lubba
