    By Official Decree of Lord Chancellor Delmotte
    01 - 05 - 308
    Article I - Isldar Insurgency
    Article II - The Puppet
    [​IMG]
    His Eminence, Lord Chancellor of the Regalian Empire, and Grand Duke of Basta-Irvelle does herein address two matters of significant importance which the Regalian citizenry are implored to take notice of.

    Article I - Isldar Insurgency,
    Per the assistance of the most honest and righteous Grand Duchess of Narlas, Dianne Black, the Regalian State was made aware of the vile treachery and dissent which had been festering amongst the otherwise good and respectable citizenry of Regalia. There are a great many who endeavor to threaten the integrity of the Regalian State in an attempt of capitulation, but there are none who act as so boldly as the individual known as ‘Taendross.’ A known sympathizer of Frisit and the Isldar of Ellador, the latter of which has recently declared war against the Regalian Empire, Taendross strives to bring the Regalian State to its knees. His Eminence the Lord Chancellor, like many times before, decided to act with benevolence when dealing with this individual, showing the hand of mercy to Taendross when she conspired against the Regalian State in the past. Unfortunately, this act of mercy has gone unappreciated, and Taendross has again struck at the throat of the Regalian State. Her list of crimes are as followed:


    1. To enter a criminal organization and/or work towards its cause is illegal.
    2. To support, aid, or associate with criminal organizations is illegal.
    3. To rebel against or disobey the Regalian State and/or Empire is illegal.
    4. To conspire against the Regalian State is illegal.

    It is with the justification of repeatedly breaking the aforementioned laws that the Lord Chancellor does decree:

    1. Taendross is stripped of her Civil Status and is instead to be given ‘Outsider Civil Status.’ The citizenry of Regalia is implored to freely beat or enslave this individual should they ever show themselves in the Crown Isle.
    2. Taendross is stripped of her position within the Regalian Guard and is barred indefinitely for the remainder of Louis Delmotte’s tenure as Lord Chancellor, and hopefully throughout the tenure of succeeding Chancellors too.
    3. Any Isldar who sympathizes with Taendross’s cause to sow dissent throughout the Empire will share the same fate. The Regalian Empire will not be brought low by pathetic attempts at insurgency.

    Article II - The Puppet,
    For the past month or so, the Regalian population has been put at immense risk by a villain that has dubbed itself as ‘The Puppet.’ This creature has repeatedly assaulted and kidnapped innocent civilians and their gallant defenders in the Regalian Guard. We are most perturbed that these heinous crimes have gone unanswered, and we are determined to bring about an end to this gross injustice. The crimes of ‘The Puppet’ are as followed:

    1. To deprive another Regalian Citizen of their freedom is illegal. (2 Counts)
    2. To willingly subject oneself or another to the aberrations of Undeadism, Sanguinism or Werebeastism is illegal.
    3. To commit to harming another citizen or non-citizen resident is illegal. (8 Counts)
    4. To hide one’s identity or to impersonate another is illegal.
    5. To resist arrest from Regalian Guard Enforcement is illegal.
    6. To support, aid, and associate with criminal organizations is illegal. (2 Counts)
    7. To rebel against or disobey the Regalian State and/or Empire is illegal.

    It should be said that this is not the fullest extent of ‘The Puppet’s’ criminal activity and that reports from multiple charters are still pending. It is with the justification of the law being broken so frequently that His Eminence, Lord Chancellor Delmotte, does declare that ‘The Puppet’ is WANTED FOR EXECUTION and that a 10,000 regal reward is offered to any who slay or deliver this creature to the Guard for proper justice to be dispensed.


    Signed by,
    His Eminence
    Lord Chancellor of the Regalian Empire
    Grand Duke of Basta-Irvelle
    Louis Delmotte

    She looked over the decree with a slight mutter to the many roaches living within her home. "Huh.. Gerald you see this?- Pft, you can't read nevermind."

    Clause looks at the notice in disbelief of what is written up there, gritting his teeth as his brows furrowed "That son of a bitch.." He muttered and sends a punch to a wall

    Greedily licked his lips, scanning over the letter. "That's a lotta money... Could make you a noble right off the bat... Or shoot, even hire a small army..."

    The SOL AVALORN compared the wording of the decree with one which had occurred not all too long ago from another governing individual, then holding the two papers side by side. She tilted her head, clicking her tongue softly in approval, and then waved the woman sitting across from her closer with two gloved fingers. "Alsanna. You should have a look at this, it might interest you." Her eyes parsed the words again, foot tapping in rhythm to help her process the blocks of text and legal tenets better. "I believe that the Lord Chancellor is engaging in the art of killing someone without killing them. Which, for a statesman of his skill and nature, is the norm. But you should have a look. I find it incredibly interesting how neutered the power of the guard charters is to punish the individuals on the wrong side of the law-- for instance, the memory of William Arnyn allowing the Puppet to leave strikes me immediately. But he evidently was not supposed to do that. Look here. Ten thousand Regal reward. That is a significant portion of our weekly income. So what is the real intent of the State, here? Do you believe that there is an intent to be hard on crime, but only through a position of centralized power? Or do you believe that there is some ideological conflict on how to best deal with criminality between the charters and the head of state? The situation baffles me quite considerably. Why, in the two situations, are there such different stances?"

    An Acolyte of the faith soon brought the Imperial decree to the Lord Reclusiarch in the midst of his penance, laying the whip down before him, he took the missive reading it, before laying it on the altar of Faustus before him, a heavy sigh escaping him.

    "Spirit give me strength, Will we witness an end to this sin?"

    Returned to the pamphlet, after having shared the word to a few acquaintances. "What if... We kill the puppet right? Cash in the bounty, then invest it in the Iron Bank... OR! Invest it in Crookback bay... OR! Invest it in Xilthruums library..." He mused over the irony of using state funds to fund additional criminal activity.

    “Oh Gods, The Isldars have rebelled just what I needed another fuckin reason to worry,” the Url sighs the various healed wounds across his form reminding of the previous few days, “Herma is no rebel and if they come for the Isladres on the Basis of Taen then I’ll help her defend herself to the last.” The Url growls as he goes off to make the appropriate sacrifices.

    "Hey, Puppet! Time to buckle up!" The Tordove called over to her stringy friend. She waved the paper in front of his face.

    Tiray stared at the notice in silence. Whether it was out of shock, or anger, was frankly uncertain. After a long, drawn out moment, she exhaled a slow breath. There was a pit in her stomach. It lurched with a cold, serrated feeling that she didn’t quite understand. It was a mix of several things; Dread, rage, hatred, and fear- the last of which she’d never admit aloud if it came down to it. She felt cold, and she hated the cold. It reminded her of the first time she’d ever felt cold after her time worshipping solely Frisit ended, except worse. She could feel her eyes watering, and her brows furrowing. Ages of work to get the votes, ages of effort put into getting the Tyrant out of his position, and it’d all been lost to one slip of the tongue by a singular untrustworthy lady.

    She hunted down Zol first, giving her the notice and leaving the rest to her, before moving on before she had the chance to ask questions. The frostling wouldn’t dare risk a breakdown in front of a woman she hardly knew personally. Next, she hunted down Wistaeri, and passed the notice to her Kin, ushering her to read it wordlessly. The lost look on her face and her tense form spoke wonders for what she was feeling; she needn’t speak her burdens aloud to make her thoughts and frustrations clear.

    Gods, what a slap in the face that would be!” They laughed at the thought before a wicked grin curled their lips. “Imagine what we could achieve with such an amount..,” the Altalar mused.

    The fat, balding dwarf would stumble upon the decree during him street vendoring "One good news after another. One Isldar bastard I can beat up and one expensive bastard to catch. I should contact Kurt"

    Sylvi held her breath as she read over the title.
    Upon giving the paper a glance over, she wheezes out a sigh.

    "Gods almighty, I thought this was about Rosecourt, but this stuff about Miss Shainvrel is..."
    Unable to find her words, she furrows her brows, clearly troubled.
    She tosses the paper onto an offhand table.

    “I hate rich people.”
    Spewed out Lorelei as she skimmed over the declaration, brows knitting in clear disdain.

    The Elden Nightmare lowered a spindly arm to give Sae a pat on the head, using its other limb to pluck up the page, gazing upon its neat penmanship before rolling it up & sinking it into its shawl.

    "We are aware, nothing to fret over as of yet if all goes well... If anything this is a revelation, prepare your self if you desire a path from exile, but a place in the lime light."

    "Fear is not a weakness, it will be the cause of our survival."
    The Entity would go on to seclude its self within a library known to some & ignored by others, utilising its restless nature for personal use, sparking life to its own creation once morn had come.

    The Black Wald Dragon strode down the marbled steps of the Kurtenwald cooridor, flanked on each side by a young Men-at-Arms of the Viridian Order. As he reached the end he sent a look over a small handful of knights, trusted Paladins and others as he raised his chin to speak.

    "This insurrection has gone on far enough. Each day the enemies of this Holy Empire grow bolder, more careless, as they stand against the authority of the Emperor himself. Find these persons and bring them to justice. Cut down anyone who stands against you. If we falter, we show weakness, and I fear that if such occurs we will see a rebellion the likes of which will swallow up this city. Put these demons and their Jacobinist agenda in their place. By the Grace of the Spirit, our duty shall be fulfilled."

    The knights would strike a clenched fist to their chest as the Dragon turned with his entourage in tow, their emerald capes flowing elegantly behind, like a void of darkness about to descend. And descend it will, upon the wicked. The Viridian Knights rounded the corner, their mission clear.

    The Lion pelt strode with purpose and confidence, his posture lax in nature, his composure exuding utter confidence and assurance in ones self. His attention was drawn at the mention of the puppet, interest tugging at his soul as he found his gaze locked on it. “My, I’m sure Thomas would life to hear of this.” He leaned forward onto the bored, placing his right scarred hand on the board as he continued to read along. “Oh, such perfect timing then, lovely guess I have someone to punish then.” They moved to turn off at that, the gentle tip two of their boot heels sounding off as they moved away.

    A poor Cielothar felt like her stomach fell out of her chest. “Taendross ...” she trailed off. She clutched the bundle at her chest, steeled herself, and went to go looking for the Isldar.

    Vala stared at the second half of the notice with a wrinkled nose before placing it down on the table. "Hagmer's bounty wasn't even that big," she mused before heaving a sigh. "The sewers are going to be crawling again. That bounty against the mercenaries won't be enough to deter them this time."

    Forcus Ironfist had finally managed to get out of his bed, weakly standing with the help of Glaror Ironfist, his grandson. They both stood to speak with the fellow Dwarf. However, the elder Dwarf had begun to speak first. "She is the one who wanted our kind killed off. H-House Black will not be forgotten." Glaror had begun to look towards the name, thinking to himself before also deciding to speak. "I believe that is the one who was my father's death bed.. did she try to kill my father, as I thought? Damn the Isldar to the Void. They are truly as vile as the Kathar."

    Aldebrand had already been made aware of the edicts, his hand shakily drifting toward his puretek as he read over it again.

    Traitors to the Empire... He thought in his head the meaning of those words. Whether it was the old guard who fabricated false accusations to bring the Inquisition down, or whether it was the sewer rats of the same elk, he would do his duty.

    "Its about time we went hunting," he mumbled, "And no corrupt charter will be there to stop us this time."

    Merdoc read the paper barely getting through the first few lines before releasing a sharp laugh and looking to Damon "The Chancellor allows himself to be further eclipsed by the rising lady of Dragenthal. One can only wonder how much longer it will be before she is declared Princess Electorate of the Heartland." he said passing off the decree to Damon and going to make his way further into the Slumberwood Estate.

    The Harbinger sat quietly within their study, the parchment laying upon the desk before them. Cocking their head to the side, their violet-rimmed eyes briefly fluttering towards their longsword that leaned just beside the door. A soft clicking of their tongue, they rose and swept the parchment up into their hands. "Continued wasted chances. You cannot have your cake and eat it too, Taen'dross. Perhaps this will get that through your thick ice block of a head." As their own words were uttered to themselves, they shoved the parchment into their pocket and moved for the door. Retrieving their blade and securing it to their person, Seraphina exited the house and made for the city. Their mind focused on the second part of the decree. Time to cut some puppet strings.

    Dominel read the notice. Then read it again. And then she read it a third time, just to make sure she hadn't dreamt up any of what she'd seen. A grin crept across her face as she neatly folded it up and put it in her coat pocket. Her fingers twitched. She could feel the frost gathering on the tips.
    "Looks like I'll have some work. And soon." She smiled to herself.

    Hreidmarr stroked his beard, anger could be heard in his voice, “Damn her and the all other Isldar polluting this city. With any luck they’ll share the same fate as that beast they worship.”

    Arien looks over the notice. The Si’hai smiles as she reads about the Puppet.”Finally! Though... How the fuck is someone going to capture that thing alive...” She shoves the paper into her pocket, back to sweeping the floors of the Nook.

    News of the most recent edict reached Nallia while she was out for more kaffee. The Isldar pressed her eyes shut for a few seconds afterwards, and muttered out a single, soft phrase: "Politics". She then peeled her eyes open before scooping up her drink and shuffling off to find some nice, quiet space to finish off her afternoon beverage.

    Unknowing of what to come, Wistaeri took the notice in hand with a raised brow, opening her eyes widely at the words written down on the paper. The Isldar looked down at it in disbelief before glancing up at Tiray for a moment in silence and confusion, then releasing a sigh and gritting her teeth she'd place the notice down, running her hands through her hair as she moved into the kitchen to make another glass of wine.

    Kurt pushed through a throng of excited townspeople who had gathered around a freshly tacked parchment on the public board. The ink was so wet, in fact, that a black smudge finger print marked the place where the courier had carried the notice straight from Lord Delmotte's writing desk.
    He waded toward the front like a dog in the high water to read the town crier's message word for word.
    "A 10,000 Regal reward? 'The Puppet', dead of alive?"
    Kurt was carried out to the edge of the crowd, and in what seemed like infinite stillness he put up a quick blessing to the Spirit. "Hunt with Honour, as is due, And through the beast to God be true. So I shall!"
    The Hunt was on.
