BE IT KNOWN:

By order of the Lady-Governor and her Council of Brilliance, the following policies are to be placed into effect immediately, and are to be considered law of the land:

  • All magicians, foreign and domestic, who wish to practice their talents in public or in private within the boundaries of this fair republic (or make use of any magical items or paraphernalia), will be required to register themselves, providing their name and their country of origin, along with a one-time processing fee of 1,000 golden solars, to a member of the Gendarmerie. The Gendarmerie will, in return, issue them a "License to Practice Magic". If a member of the Gendarmerie or public official has reason to believe that the magician is using his or her talents in a reckless manner, the license can and will be revoked, and may not be re-issued.
  • Those who practice magic without a license, be it a work of trickery or legerdemain, or something that is in fact supernatural, will be struck with a fine equal to 2,000 solars, upon the first offense. Upon the second, they will be issued a fine of 5,000 solars. Upon the third offense, they shall be arrested by a member of the Gendarmerie until a more severe sentence will be decided upon by a magistrate.

BE IT KNOWN:

We of the Lady-Governor's most esteemed Council of Brilliance do unequivocally and unilaterally condemn the recent actions of STEZEN D'POLARNO, MARQUIS of GHASTRIA. The unlawful abduction of a Dementlieuse citizen and chevalier de la Republique by those employed by the Marquis, cannot go unanswered and certainly cannot go unpunished.

As such, we hereby decree that the shipping and delivery of all foodstuffs to the isle of Ghastria is to be deemed unlawful -- those caught transporting any such goods by ship or by any other means will be tried as though smugglers carrying contraband, as per our pre-existing laws on the matter.

BE IT KNOWN:

That in the recent struggle against the Covenant, the Council finds itself needful of every armed weapon that can be put to the defense of the Republique; therefore, mercenary companies and those seeking good pay and fair treatment should send a representative to Port-a-Lucine as soon as possible. Pay will depend on preparedness, training, and previous experience.

By order of the Lady-Governor acting through this, her Council of Brilliance, under the legal authority of the government of the Republique de Dementlieu, we do hereby order and proclaim that all those seeking safety and shelter during the siege by the villainous, murderous traitor Marius de Mortigny will be granted safe accommodation and shelter within the

GRAND OPÉRA NATIONAL

by a gracious offer from its proprietor Ricardo Diosa, late of this Council.

Food, blankets, and bedding will be provided, and the building will be marked as a safe refuge in the unlikely event that a few enemies manage to enter the city.

The people of Port-a-Lucine are likewise admonished not to go beyond the walls! The Maitriser's army is wicked and evil, and accounts of murders, robbery, rapes, and worse are heard every day by the noble Gendarmes. The Council cannot defend you from threats if you willingly leave this safe and secure city!

BE IT KNOWN:

That in order to ensure the safety and security of all CITOYENS of this fair REPUBLIQUE, the upcoming

ELECTIONS

must be held in accordance with ancient Dementlieuse tradition. However, certain

SUBVERSIVE ELEMENTS

have been conspiring to undermine the legitimacy and security of these elections, which has resulted in their delay despite the best intentions of the Provisional Government. Therefore, additional security members have had to be taken to ensure the safety of all concerned.

Furthermore, it has been noted that candidates continue to undermine the legitimacy of the elections or argue in support of the deposed Council. This is impermissible and risks throwing us back into civil war. Therefore, all candidates must ensure that their expressed views are not in violation of ancient tradition and Dementlieuse custom. Any found to be in violation of this edict will be

IMPRISONED

or subject to forfeiture of their titles and assets.
