  1. A CHANGE IN NAME Issued at Year 168 of the Second Age, 14th of Sun’s Smile Let it be known throughout the realms of Lurin and beyond, that a grand transformation is upon us, one that shall shape the annals of our history and mark a new era of prosperity, justice, and unity. As the sun sets on the dominion of House Anarion, we, the sovereign heirs of Lurin, do hereby declare the ascension of House Uialben to the throne. Casting away our fake adopted oppressive titles in exchange for what is synonymous with the bloodline of the Lurinite founders. With profound reverence for our storied past and unwavering determination for a brighter future, we embark on this journey of change and renewal. The Lurin regality wishes not to be synonymous with a bloodline tangentially ensnared in a family on the coattails to Liliyana Carrington and Karysmov Faroe, something that people seemed to bring as some type of dig onto not only the previous Trade Nation of Sutica, The Defunct Magi Nation of Llyria, but now our fair new independent state of the Lubba. With this change, not much will truly change. To put it simply, the surname of the ruling house of the Most Serene State of Lurin will be reverting back to what it once was before Lily Helenson-Anarion adopted our previous Silver Lubba. The Reigning Silver Lubba feels this change is necessary. To reclaim our true heritage, rebuild a once great house. To be something more than what we once were. Henceforth, the Silver Lubba and her immediate family will be Anarion’s no more. It served us well. However, it no longer suits who we have been freed to grow into. May House Uialben grow stronger than it once was in eons past. Long may we prosper and progress. The Silver Lubba, Lumia Uialben
  2. [!] A purple glowing hue burnt onto papers writes a missive broadcasted to all of Aevos [!] "Brothers. Soldier. Guardians. Slayers. Constructs. Creations. The Brotherhood Eternal summons you. Our sacred soldiers have been scattered for a while now and the eternal flame has layed dormant since The Great Kiraso and Mother Scribe vanished. But they were not wrong to believe in the nature of our creation. We are purification, and by the great void shall we cleanse the world of what does not belong. With flame and might we will pierce the skulls of the darkspawn filth that plague this land, feeding on the youth of the people who once created us. To the descendants, whether you are elven people or humans of canonism, let our upbringing not strike fear into your hearts but bring you comfort and assistance on our hunt of darkspawn. To the brothers of our lost army, the eternal flame has been reignited. There is a place for you here to rejoin our great purpose. To the constructs of Aveos beyond our path, a place in the path of the eternal flame is now open to you. Atronachs, Creations, Constructs, you are called to join us in. We offer you purpose, leadership and brotherhood. Join us in the eternal hunt of dark-filth, and we will offer you mana, reparations and upgrades accordingly. The Brotherhood Eternal calls you. Seek Master Prometheus in the most serene state of Lurin, and you shall be enlightened." Eternal we fight. Eternal we hunt. [OOC NOTE] Greetings fellow LOTC-ers. To those of you interested in playing Atronachs, The Brotherhood Eternal needs YOU! Message me on discord: Zakajaervi and you can become our next atronach.
  3. Dear cherished friends and allies, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible display of courage and camaraderie you showed at our wedding. The unexpected arrival of the Azdrazi threatened to shatter our joyous occasion, but your unwavering bravery turned the tide. In the face of danger, you stood by us, fought valiantly, and protected not only our union but the very essence of love that binds us all. The strength and unity you demonstrated are a testament to the powerful bonds forged in the fires of adversity. From the depths of our hearts, thank you for being the guardians of our joy, the defenders of our love, and the heroes of our special day. May the echoes of your valor resonate in the annals of our shared memories. If ever you should need of anything, please do not hesitate to come to me. You saved us. You made our ruined special day memorable instead of a travesty. And for that we are Eternally grateful for. With profound appreciation, The Silver Lubba, Lumia Anarion The Royal Consort, Apollyon Snowell

  6. CERULIA, PROTECTOR OF THE MARCHLANDS Issued at Year 157 of the Second Age Upon retirement from my Lurinite crown, I was granted lands which I am to watch over. During the end of my tenure, I have focused on development of The Marchlands of Lurin which now act as the connection between all parts of the realm and host of forts and farms. I have held myself content and enjoy my retirement, however, the ambitious person I am, I crave progress in our most Serene State and will continue development of the Marchlands. THE MOST SERENE BARONY OF CERULIA, CAPITAL OF THE MARCHLANDS Cerulia, better known as Mika Anarion’s Retirement home stands tall within The Marchlands, joined by farms and a few centurions. These serene lands have earned their title as it is a place of peace and progress under the watchful eye of the Lubba. Constructs are made in peace who then tend to their duty to either maintain or protect the barony at all costs. This barony houses few men though all are productive, paying tax in service instead of mina. THE MARCHLANDS OF LURIN While Cerulia is only a small part of it, I intend on transforming the region of The Marchlands into a collective of farms, small keeps and a place of willing soldiers to aid Lurin in protecting their people, territories and allies. I am only one descendant with a few constructs and a plot of land to my name, I will need help protecting these lands and I will reward those dedicated to the cause. Those aiding me in developing and protecting these lands and dedicate themselves to the cause of protecting Lurin in my name shall be rewarded accordingly. Those most dedicated to the cause may be granted their own plot of land to develop, protect and thrive with friends and family while keeping their oath to protect the lands. Those interested, find me in my Most Serene Barony of Cerulia or send me a note. ETERNAL WE MARCH signed, The Silver Lubba, Mika Anarion

  9. To Gashadokuro __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It has been made known of your acts against people like myself. Sometime ago someone gave me a warning, a warning I did not take seriously though. That warning was a possible assassination upon someone with quality traits like myself. Now seeing this, I am taking this very seriously, but I will not hide from beings of undead like yourself. Even though I have my dislikes of the Oyashiman, I am willing to place that aside to help their friend in need. If the Oyashiman wish for my assistance, you know where to find me. I have men and women around Aevos who would be willing to help, just give me the word. To Gashadokuro personally, worst mistake was working alongside those frost witches and going after myself. I will not stop until my heart stops beating one final time! Now YOU have been warned, I am coming after you!

  10. THE BROTHERHOOD ETERNAL Issued at Year 150 of the Second Age A gathering of atronachs convenes within a hall, an atronach drone ready to start taking record of the words about to be spoken. “Brothers, it seems the place that we once thought free from the dark has been infested by vile creatures of frost. Although there may no longer be any residing within Lurin; this leads me to wonder what else is hiding from our watch… We shall not let such things continue! We vowed to protect Lurin from the dark and we have failed! This time however, I call for a penitent crusade, to make amends for our inability to push the vile scourge from the lands of Lurin. Starting with Lurin itself; we will test the suspicious and we will slaughter the guilty and impure. To restore purity and balance to our once serene lands, ultimately bringing peace back to our citizens.” This is a formal declaration issued from The Brotherhood Eternal. By all that is; By creator and void, we shall cleanse the realms of the vile scourge that dare plague the blessed lands with their presence. We pledge to dedicate ourselves to aid all that are pure and holy. To protect the innocent from these vile darkspawn that threaten the peace and safety of all. We ask that the innocent and holy not see us as foes, but as allies in these dark times. For we will lay down our very beings for the lives of the innocent, the pure and the holy. Our will; unbreakable. Our inquisition; unending. until every last dark creature and their allies are removed from this mortal plain; we will not rest until the lands are pure and free from dark once again. We are eternal.

  11. THE FROST WITCHES IN LURIN Issued at Year 149 of the Second Age We found the frost witches, they are gone now. THE LAIR OF ICE Hidden deep underneath the city, there was a lair of ice. We blocked the only entrance with piles of wood and lit them on fire to smoke them out and melt their icy walls. Presumably there are no survivors as afterwards we stripped the lair of any defenses and texts they held. The names on the signs of their abodes within the lair seemingly were targeted towards Lurin itself as they included every single council member’s name including that of my own and notable Lurinites to mock us and use in transcripts written by them. Corpses were burnt, bodies in vats were found and all remaining forms of life were thrown into the hole without a bottom. SURVIVORS Not all frost witches were found or present within these caves, be careful of a return in another realm nearby. They may hide in vassals of surrounding nations as they are masters of disguise and may convert a female leader to be in favor of them. Testing here in Lurin continues to find those who have decided we are not hostile enough to their existence. ETERNAL WE STAND, ESHTAEL KEEPS BALANCE signed, The Silver Lubba
  12. The birth of a new Generation Issued by the The Starling Kaeronin branch (art by unibearse) 5th of the Deep Cold 146 As the sun rose and sun streak came through the windows of homes, birds chirping in song, this morning seemed different somehow from other mornings, especially in the Kaeronin Songbird household, a tiring night, friends and family waiting in anticipation, news finally given, letters sent out a new baby boy was born on the 5th of the Deep Cold 146 The new-born's features looked identical to that of his mothers, pale porcelain skin, bright snow white hair, and doe-like eyes somewhat darker than the mothers matching more of that of his fathers. It is with great pride and joy that the Kaeronin’s and the Songbirds announce the birth of their son Nevio Kaeronin Songbird. Floria Kaeronin with her son Nevio Kaeronin Below a letter the mother had written to her new-born, and a letter thrown out to sea.

  13. ESHTAEL’S INQUISITION Issued at Year 145 of the Second Age Our most serene balance has been tipped without hesitation of the enemy. Regardless of our more peaceful efforts to cleanse our city of darkspawn, xionists and the vampiric to ward them from the city by laying down aurum lines at every bridge and gate. With our most serene city and requiring testing for both darkspawn and vampirism to acquire a property while being hunted by our constructs for their corruption, it is beyond our council why our very own citizens and vassals invite these pests to reside in our state. Change needs to happen. DETECTION OF THE VILE Every person within our state is subject to a standardized spook test such as those we perform to acquire properties, performed with an aurum dagger and a pouch of salt, this shall cover the majority of darkspawn, However, I will make one addition to this test: exposure to the heat of a torch becomes necessity to detect an entirely new threat, which was made apparent from my visits to The Commonwealth of the Petra. Reactions will be as follows: Aurum shall make darkspawn uneasy and take increased pain from it. Salt upon freshly spilt vampire blood shall boil it. The heat of a torch shall melt the skin of the people made of ice. Xionists, however, are harder to detect as they are folk without a religion and harbor an extreme hate towards Aenguls and the creator. We shall operate based on word of mouth and put all accused to trial and search their property for further evidence that makes us believe beyond a reasonable doubt that they are with this group. Due to the severity of the situation, all who are proven to belong to these groups shall be put down by the blade after receiving their last rites. ON THOSE WHO AID THE VILE Every person affiliated to these groups and those who harbor them shall receive a lesser punishment unless warranted otherwise. Their dominant arm shall be taken and capped off with steel embedded into the bone. The removal of these caps shall be considered criminal and remove the thumbs of the one doing so. All who are found to aid or harbor the vile shall be publicly shamed and exposed for their actions. To encourage those who house the vile to repent for their sins, any person who comes forth and tells us of the one they harbor and what they are shall be spared from punishment. THE VILE THAT TRY TO HIDE To the vile that try to hide, do not. Expose yourself and make it easier for us all or leave the city as soon as you are done reading this. We are determined to cleanse our territories of all Xionists, Vampiric folk, Ice People, Undead and Darkspawn. ETERNAL WE STAND, ESHTAEL KEEPS BALANCE signed, The Silver Lubba
  14. THE INQUISITION PREVAILS Issued at Year 145 of the Second Age Tensions rose, Lurin denied by their very own vassal of Vikela to conduct spook tests upon them, though the inquisition did not yield. Eshtael graced us with the balance we sought and plenty of allies to aid us while Vikela fortified themselves. The last men and women from Talar’nor and various surrounding nations arrived to aid in our most holy goal to rid our lands of the dark, a cry was sounded by The Silver Lubba, offering mercy to those who come out the gate and allow themselves to be tested. None came out. The inquisition commenced. The varying groups in a coordinated fashion advanced to their positions, shooting arrows back and forth before a ladder was erected against the Vikelan walls where the forces gained access to their most fortified positions, mercenaries fleeing the site to the floodplains. All was dealt with rather swiftly inside the city itself to knock the defenders out. After this, we missed one important Vikelan by the name of Orn who followed the mercenaries, a prolonged skirmish on the floodplains followed. The mercenaries were not spared due to their questionable affiliation, however, Orn was spared after the spook test came out negative, proving he is not a vampire or darkspawn. After all was done and dusted, all headed back to Lurin and minor repairs were made and wounds treated. Negotiations with the allied forces commenced to strengthen bonds and keep our morale up high. THE INQUISITION IS VICTORIOUS ETERNAL WE STAND, ESHTAEL KEEPS BALANCE signed, The Silver Lubba
  15. ON LURINITE SUCCESSION Issued at Year 145 of the Second Age As I grow older and my body becomes covered with scars and memories, it is found necessary to think about succession within my most serene realm to avoid conflict within succession of vassals, nobility and eventually myself. Lurinite Succession For Vassals Our most serene vassals stand central for the growth of our realm to develop lands which our state does not have an interest in or having been granted a plot of land for their efforts towards our most serene state. I. Vassals by default have their ruling family to choose from for an heir, this may be appointed by the current ruler at any moment during their reign. II. If a ruler of a vassal leaves their position before an eligible heir is chosen, a vote by the council may be had to choose from the ruling family to lead them. III. If found that none are eligible, a new ruler may be appointed from the council through the previous methods. IV. Vassals may discuss their own succession with The Silver Lubba for other methods and must be documented for validity. Lurinite Succession For Nobility Nobility is the breath of the realm, giving life to our roads and streets and represented by a single person of that family in our most serene courts. As such, it is necessary for our nobility to continue the cycle and pass the torch if the previous one cannot hold it anymore. I. Nobility by default have their ruling member appoint a successor to take their mantle of noble during their lifetime. II. If the leading member of a noble family leaves before a successor is found, the family may collectively appoint a new leading member. III. If there are no members of this family left within Lurinite lands, the family loses their status of nobility. IV. Nobility may discuss other methods of succession with The Silver Lubba and must be documented for validity Lurinite Succession For The Silver Lubba Even my own succession is to be handled, regardless of my long reign from Lubba’s Keep to what Lurin is today. Without a successor we cannot stand eternal as I have preached to all for decades. I. The Silver Lubba may appoint their successor from the Eshtaelites of House Anarion, House Edevane, House Bojo, House Snowell or The Lubba’s Council at will. II. If The Silver Lubba decides to leave early, The Lubba’s Council may through any method choose an Esthaelite among them, be it combat, contest or democracy, choose a new Silver Lubba. III. If there are no Eligible successors in the previous methods, an Eshtaelite from the nobility of our realm to take the mantle until a new Silver Lubba rises. IV. If a non-Esthaelite is willed as The Silver Lubba, they are either to convert to the cause or rejected. V. If a Silver Lubba is chosen illegitimately, that Silver Lubba is to be put down or The Realm of Lurin Dissolves if that pretender keeps a hold of our most serene lands.

SCAVENGER HUNT Across the main city of Lurin, chests will be hidden with trinkets inside for guests to find. However, the hardest to find will be Mr. Snugglesworth the Teddy Bear. Whoever finds and brings this teddy bear to Juniper in the square will receive an additional prize of 50 mina. Any other trinkets may be taken home by guests as party favors. Personal invitations are sent to the following, per the request of Dasyra: Juniper Rose & Scrisa Anarion, and the Anarion family The An-Gho, and his esteemed pedigree Raziel Ibarellan (“Mr. Stars”), and his esteemed pedigree Giraudus Reinold Handil Deyn Astaroth Mr. Kitty-Cat The nobility and citizens of Lurin The Valiant Seekers Guild Refreshments for guests will be graciously provided by the Starlight Winery.

  17. OUR PLACE ON THE COAST Issued at Year 143 of the Second Age Rapid expansion is naturally a sign of prosperity, with it comes many new challenges and diplomatic routes unexpected to have encountered before. Negotiations with surrounding realms have proven to be fruitful, with this our most serene state has simple claims of land to maintain ourselves and maintain content within our own realm. THE CLAIMS Lurin currently has the majority of the floodplains under direct control with a small foothold in the cherry blossoms area as negotiated with the regional powers, however, expansion is not ceasing and here on a map we will present our desired and most likely final borders. (Thank you lotc wiki map maker) (For the tile nerds) With this I would also like those nations who would wish to contest these claims to reach out to our most serene state to resolve this.

  18. The Office of Conservation & Preservation 2nd of the Deep Cold, 141 SA The lands of Lurin and of Aevos are brimming with life wherever one may look, flourishing and blooming with flowers of many kinds, while just as many animals and creatures roam the lands. Such has been the case on many of the other landmasses Lurin was established on in the past. To protect said lands and also important artifacts, which are tied to Lurins history, the new Office of Conservation and Preservation has been established. STRUCTURE OF THE OFFICE Within the newly established Office multiple ranks and positions were created, each of them focusing on specific tasks and jobs within the office itself. Such jobs can range from the establishment of new protected landscapes to the preservation of historical items or items of interest. Grand Protector The Grand Protector is the head of the Office of Conservation & Preservation, taking care of any arising issues within the Office, while also managing and maintaining several projects at the same time. They are also the person in charge of handling recruiting new members for the Office, while establishing and handing out new possible tasks for the members of the Office. Besides such they are often taking care of obtaining the necessary equipment for the members of the Office, such as rewarding them for their work. Archivist Acting as the second in command the Archivists are hand-picked and appointed members of the community by the Grand Protector. They are managing major projects, act as spokesperson and teachers while the Grand Protector might not be around. Besides such they often lead groups of either Preservers or Conservationists and train newly appointed Scholars in the fields of conservation and preservation. Besides such they are often in charge of documenting newly found or retrieved items, writing the newly acquired information down into one of the many historical books, which can be found within the depths of the Office. Preserver Preservers are often jokingly described as treasure hunters, as they are responsible for obtaining and retrieving unique and rare materials, such as gemstones, weaponry and much more for the Office. Said items are often seen as treasures for the State and are displayed in the educational part of the Office, allowing students to learn about the history of such items and the power they might hold. Due to their line of work Preservers are often individuals with a rather unique skill set, focusing on acrobatics, but also knowledge about where one may find such items for the Office. Conservationist Seen as the very backbone of the Office, commonly known as Conservationists, these individuals are experts in the field of conserving the lands, monitoring current ecosystems and even creating new ones around Lurins borders. Most often projects focusing on replanting destroyed fields or the restoration of damaged coral reefs are handled by the individuals with this very rank. They are also responsible in keeping the local populations of animals and creatures in check, may it be through breeding or reintroducing individual animals and creatures to strengthen their local populations. Scholar The Scholars of the Office of Conservation and Preservation are rather newly appointed individuals, who are tasked to study past projects and the very importance of the Office itself. They are often asked to help with ongoing projects, may it be through the retrieval of ancient items or the establishment of new conservation areas. Often working together with more experienced Conservationists or Preservers they are often acting as students of those individuals. PURPOSE AND DUTIES OF THE OFFICE Conservation of the bordering lands One of the major tasks of the Office of Conservation & Preservation is simply the conservation of the landmasses bordering or within Lurin and the State as a whole. Such can include the removal of possible threats to the bordering lands, while also taking care of natural disasters, which might occur. Besides such the Office is also trying to conserve unique plants and animals within the borders of Lurin. Restoration of the local flora and fauna Upon finding any harmed landmasses or any pollutants the Office is tasked to restore those areas to their former glory, either through ordinary or magical means. Most often druids and the likes of such are asked to assist with such work, yet, just as equally often a handy gardener will be asked for some assistance. At the same time the restoration does also involve the repopulation of species into the local lands, most often by creating a core population and then spreading said population. Protection of important landmarks Besides the general conservation and restoration work of the Office many of the members are also tasked in the protection of important landmarks, such as specific buildings, natural occurring structures, such as the reefs, and much more. The general protection of the landmasses and of Lurin hold a high priority within the Office of Conservation and Preservation. Preservation of important items The Office of Conservation & Preservation is often focusing on the conservation of living beings and ecosystems, yet, the members of the Office are also tasked with the preservation of important, and most often historical, items. Such items can range from the crown of a past ruler to the preservation of unique gemstones and even the preserved parts of specific creatures or plants. As such they are creating the perfect environment for those willing to learn and study those items within the halls of the Office. Documentation of historical relics Once obtained by the Office the actual documentation of historical or important items and relics is also important. Most often a set of Archivists will start to document the items in great detail, while marking down any unique properties the items might hold. Afterwards a proper record will be created and added to one of the many files, which can be found within the depths of the new Office. PAYMENT The payment can be requested within the running elven week from the Grand Protector and equals a tax slab. In case of excellent work and the successful completion of difficult tasks and missions the Office is willing to pay respectable bonuses to the individuals, who partook in those projects. This bonus is handed out by the head of the Office. In case of especially hard and taxing missions unique medals and rewards may also be handed out to the partaking individuals. Scholars: 5 Mina-Tax Slab Conservationists: 10 Mina-Tax Slab Preservers: 10 Mina-Tax Slab Archivists: Tax Exemption for one 10 Mina-Tax-Property Grand Protector: Tax Exemption for one 20 Mina-Tax-Property INITIATION Process To join the Office of Conservation & Preservation one may either find an Archivist or the Grand Protector of the Office and inform them of their willingness to join the Office. Upon doing so the responsible Archivist or the Grand Protector will conduct an interview with the interested newcomer, while also explaining the actual work that the Office handles. They are then given a first task to complete, most often simple ones, before they are officially added to the ranks of a Scholar. If the newly appointed member has shown enough dedication and has completed a few tasks at the side of a Conservationist or Preserver they might be recommended to be added to one of those teams as a permanent member. If enough Archivists and the Grand Protector agree the Scholar will be oathed and given their new rank as either Conservationist or Preserver. The Oath Upon being oathed the following words need to be stated by the selected individual; “I [Name] do solemnly swear, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, to pledge my undying loyalty to the Service of the Silver Lubba and the State of Lurin, to the Grand Protector and to the citizens and subjects under the Silver Lubba. I pledge my efforts to the prosperity and defense of the institutions of the Holdings. I pledge my body as a tool for the Silver Lubba, a friend to the commoner, a helping hand to the needed. I pledge my body and mind for the preservation and conservation of the Serene State of Lurin. I shall obey the orders of those placed above me, and I shall never falter from this oath. On my soul and honor this I swear. Stand Eternal with honor and Glory!”
  19. TO KRUGMAR AND THEIR CAELIAN BRIGANDS Issued at Year 140 of the Second Age The orcish and human forces that have arrived at our most serene territories have been a nuisance and have laid harm upon our people through dishonorable practices and banditry of the innocent. My daughter, Princess Freya, has had an attempt on her life by these brigands who are called Caelians. My daughter has survived, but not without having harm done to her, consequences are needed to be had. DECLARATION OF FREEDOM Due to the nature of these brigands, there is only one punishment applicable, they shall be granted freedom. This strips them of all rights that our most serene state could offer and are no longer considered a protected entity by law, making them unable to obtain properties in the future and are free to be slaughtered on sight without repercussions for the one that does so. EMBARGO ON KRUGMAR Until aggression is fully ceased, all horde assets in Lurin will be confiscated by the state and all trade offers will be refused. Merchants of our most serene state will be urged to remove their goods from the markets of Krugmar and their affiliated realms, presumed that any and all trade with krugmar as the embargo us in place is an act of undermining authority of our most serene state. PEACEFUL UNTIL DISTURBED Our most serene citizens have been assaulted and kidnapped by the brigands of Krugmar and held hostage within their very capital without prior aggression from our people before they were released by force. Our citizens seek peace, yet are not afraid to defend themselves if deemed necessary as our Lurinite spirit deems so. May you come to your senses and make the right choice before one is made for you by your own people. ETERNAL WE STAND, ESHTAEL KEEPS BALANCE signed, The Silver Lubba

  21. UNREGISTERED CITIZENS Issued at Year 139 of the Second Age It has been brought to my attention after some years that my very own citizens are unaware of who they invite into their homes to live with them to the dismay of many others within our most serene state. Thus we shall purge the evil from our homes by force. ADDITIONAL SPOOK TESTS For a person to live with an already established citizen, they are needed to undergo a standardized spook test which can be conducted by any Lurinite steward. Failure to comply will result in a fine and if found that a person is hosting darkspawn in their abode, they shall be charged with the aiding of dark creatures, a class A crime warranting execution after seeing the darkspawn they have hosted executed before them first. REGISTERING CITIZENS All citizens who are living in your abode are now necessary to be registered with a Lurinite steward and otherwise charged with Claiming, a class C crime. Temporary guests are allowed as long they stay within a two year period of time total over the course of a decade. Individuals trying to loophole this system will be subject to be charged with the same law regardless and our Stewards are allowed to enforce this law and observe any unfamiliar faces visiting frequently and question them.

  22. STEEL FOR THE LURINITES Issued at Year 139 of the Second Age With a sudden boom in the Lurinite steel industry spearheaded by our most serene state and The Silver Lubba, it has been decided that we shall distribute a fraction of our production towards supplying our most helpful citizens with this steel for projects and personal equipment. THE DISTRIBUTION With the acquisition of a few new iron mines within our borders, we have achieved an abundance of steel in our market and storage, steel that remains unused as Lurin has achieved its more than comfortable surplus of steel that shall only be touched for the most dire of situations. This steel shall be distributed amongst the population through valid requests to the state. THE ELIGIBILITY The eligibility of our citizens to acquire the steel they desire from our most serene state depends on a few factors which are easily met by the more productive members of our society. The following citizens are eligible with proper reason: Silver Lubba Band Members Tavern Workers Critical Industries High Nobility Low Nobility Direct Vassals Special cases may arise and they shall be discussed personally upon receiving a request. THE REQUESTS The requests should always be fair and reasonable to both the productive citizen and the state, any amount may be requested, though the state may always deny a request if deemed necessary. The following reasons are likely to be accepted by the state: Equipment Maintenance Equipment Replenishment Production of State Goods Production of Critical Goods Fortification of Property Supplying Workers These reasons are most valid to the state and one may suggest another if deemed necessary. Any and all requests are able to be denied even if meeting all criteria. ETERNAL WE STAND, ESHTAEL KEEPS BALANCE signed, The Silver Lubba
  23. DENOUNCING THOSE OF FALSE FATES Issued at Year 138 of the Second Age A few reports have come out regarding fortune tellers with dark magics, using the minds of our citizens with good faith left for their own malicious gains. No wounds are found on the victims, yet they are left exhausted and unable to work for our most serene state. BANISHMENT OF THE PRACTICE Fortune telling is against the law now, being declared a class C crime and makes the lawbreaker subject to a mandatory spook test. Further elaboration will be made within the codex as to what constitutes breaking this law under 2.6.3f. ETERNAL WE STAND, ESHTAEL KEEPS BALANCE signed, The Silver Lubba
  24. Tiwari’s Furniture And Home Designing Workshop DEAR NEW COSTUMERS AND POTENTIAL COSTUMERS-TO-BE! I, Tiwari Edevane Elmwood, Director of Furniture And Home Design (FAHD) finally bring news forth once again about the future of the establishment, following the prior announcement about our development! As some of you may know, low and behold we have silently started to take in a few commissions from primarily around Lurin but also a stray one here and there from other parts of the Continent. Through our experience with this bit of behind the scenes work, and the employment of two new Employees to the FAHD ranks, we have decided it is time to more officially open up for business! Our current target audience in terms of work territory will still be within Lurin’s borders, as our current pricing model uses this place’s space, economy and such as a template for pricing guidelines. However, we won’t be shy to gradually expand out to Lurin’s neighboring Settlements and Nations and work our way out from there as we are ready to do so. For news on that, feel free to check in with us at our Company Headquarters in Lurin, in the Old Town district, or ask if you see any of us elsewhere! Do you live In or nearby Lurin and have an interest in getting building and/or furnishing help for a reasonable price? Then please consider applying for FAHD to come and take a look at the job you want done and we will give you an as fair price as possible with a willing-to-help attitude towards you! Please, do not hesitate to contact us either by mail to me, Tiwari, or finding our establishment in the State of Lurin to seek us out about it, and we can discuss further details together! (OOC: or you can DM me on discord: @thegekko or open a ticket in the official FAHD discord server: https://discord.gg/gkSuX6HCta ) A special welcome for our new Employees is appropriate here at the end! We’re looking forward to continue working with you, Nellis and Kaelis! We hope that with your contributions, we can satisfy more costumers as we go! That would be all for this Company update. Thank you for your time, and we hope to work with you soon! -Tiwari (Director of FAHD)
  25. TO THE MEN IN GREEN Issued at Year 136 of the Second Age Earlier on this day two men, one in green and golden robes entered Lurin as our gates are always open during times of peace, however, this trust has been abused by these two individuals who witnesses have claimed to have set our tree on fire sprinting far into the city and probably through the canals before aid could be called for. As Lurin is a forgiving State, these two individuals shall be only punished for the crimes they have commited according to the Codex of Lurin within our territories, willing or not. - Attempted Murder, a Class B Crime -> Putting Lurin citizens in danger - Grand Vandalism, a Class A Crime -> Burning the Tree Leading up to a fine of 1500 mina per person present or the alternatives: - Execution of All - 2150 mina worth of labor or goods per person - Banishment and loss of both eyes, two limbs or the tongue May this be done peacefully and swiftly without escalation, you have one Eshtael Week to respond or we'll send the Brotherhood after you. Eternal We Stand, Eshtael Keeps Balance. Signed,
