  1. The Government of the Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation presents its compliments to the Government of the High Realm of Stormark, and, pursuant to Act of Frenzy, has the honour to convey to the Government of the High Realm, that: 1. The Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation has transferred the territory of Jorvik to the Imperial Republic of Shireroth; 2. All power, including that of Jarl of Jorvik, that was previously afforded His Most Bovic Majesty the Emperor of the Natopians, has been succeeded to by His Majesty the King of Elwynn; and 3. The Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation no longer considers itself bound by the Treaty of the Clear Sea. The Government of the Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation avails itself of the opportunity to assure the Government of the High Realm of Stormark the assurances of its highest consideration.
  2. My lady -- that would be the lord steward of Elwynn.
  3. 10 Azar 1394 12 Silnuai/Noveber 1631 10 Ydalir 14 ASC 5961 Know that We, Mibaradardam be Khorshid va Mah Minamaz dadanam Zurvan, have in the first place granted to Zurvan this farman which by his Kharenah is confirmed for Us and Our heirs forever. Whereas the imperial and dynastic Line of Ayreon-Kalirion, having ruled, at various times, empires, kingdoms and principalities around the world, has recently been involved in the organization of members of the same Line into a House, with rules and laws governing it; And whereas The High King's Most Excellent Majesty in the High Council of the Realm in Stormark, on the fifth day of Noatun in the fourteenth year of the Second Viking Age in the Second Epoch of the High Realm of Stormark, created the House of Ayreon-Kalirion for members of relation to the Line of Ayreon-Kalirion in Stormark; And whereas His late Majesty the Kaiser of Shireroth, then Emir of Sathrati and Patriarch of Ayreon-Kalirion, on the sixth day of Vixaslaa in the year of Norton sixteen-hundred and twenty-one, recognized the Line of Ayreon-Kalirion and defined it by law, also adopting Her late Majesty Kaiseress Isa IV Cassandrae into it; It has therefore become necessary for the creation of a Charter for the House of Ayreon-Kalirion, so that it may be governed across many jurisdictions as one entity with one set of members. Accordingly, I, Nathaniel Andre Utas, Emir of Sathrati, Patriarch of the Line of Ayreon-Kalirion, order, ordain and declare: THE CHARTER OF THE HOUSE OF AYREON-KALIRION 1. MEMBERSHIP 1.1. Acquiring Provided that a person is (or his or her descendants are) not excluded from the membership of the house, 1. any person descended, whether genetically or by adoption, from the union between Princess Isa of Brookshire (otherwise known as Tuuler Kalir) and Eskender Arsalani Sahib, or 2. any person adopted into the House by the Emir or the Council of Elders, or 3. any person having married a member of the House, or 4. any descendant of a member by virtue of point 2, are the members of the house. All members have the right to the style, degree and dignity of imperial highness. 1.2.

Exclusion 1.4.1. Unmarried, childless members. Any unmarried childless member of the house shall, upon petition to the Emir to exclude him or her from the house, cease being a member of the house following the Emir’s decree effecting the same.

Members of the house who are married to each other, and who have no descendants, shall, upon a petition to the Emir signed by them with the request that they be excluded from the house, cease to be members of the house following the Emir’s decree effective the same. Any subsequent descendants, or spouses, will not have automatic right of membership in the house. 1.4.3. The Council of Elders may on its own motion exclude a member from the house if it is satisfied that the member has put the house in disrepute, or tarnished the house, or acting seditiously and untrue to the house, or performing acts with great ill will toward other members of the house. Such exclusion will also apply to any descendants and spouses of the excluded member, unless such descendants and spouses have claim of membership by other connexion or relative. 1.4.4.

  4. Your High Holiness I have the honour to present the compliments of the Imperial Bovic Government of the Natopian Nation to you and to the whole government of the High Realm of Stormark. Under the Act to amend the Caprine Code of the Bovic Tapferite Empire of the Natopian Nation to effect a change of the name of the Empire, the name of the Empire is now the Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation. Would your High Holiness be able to assist in changing the legal name of the Natopian Embassy in Haraldsborg so to reflect this new law? This will in no way affect any responsibilities or obligations that Natopia has under treaties or otherwise under international law with the High Realm. I have the honour to remain your faithful servant, NATHANIEL
  5. HIH Prince Nathaniel Grand Chamberlain of the Court of the Calm Waters Lindström HHH Lady Sigrdrifa Lady Warden to the Outland Haraldsborg Your High Holiness To you, my Lady, and to the government of the High Realm of Stormark I extend the compliments of the government of the Bovic Tapferite Empire of the Natopian Nation and mine. I have the honour to inform your High Holiness that I have been appointed Grand Chamberlain of the Court of the Calm Waters, a role that in Natopia is comparable to your office in Stormark. Relations between our countries are of great importance to the Natopian government. The manned and active embassy in Haraldsborg is one example of that objective, as are the many treaties being conducted between our governments. Another example is the strong interdynastic relationship the ruling families of our nations share. I have been instructed by the Natopian government to invite, on behalf of Minister Peter Laidon of Jingdao (who cited difficulties in communicating with Stormark), a representative of the government of the High Realm, for a meeting under Article 8.2 of the Tapfer Continental Organization and Standardization Treaty. The meeting is expected to take place near the village of Am Denkmal des Kapitän Callaghans on Penguin Island. I have the honour to extend to your High Holiness the assurance of my highest consideration, Nathaniel
  6. Emperor Nathaniel of the Natopians arrived with his brother Naian, the Raja of Tas Neemia, greeted Lady Wenche, the Archbishop of Geneva and the First Consul of Alexandria each before spotting his own chancellor. "Good to see you Christo!" Soon enough, Nathaniel's aunt would be married.
  7. Nathaniel woke up 36 hours later in the imperial ward of Haraldsborg's most regal hospital. Somehow, by the unluckiest turn of events, he fell unconscious by his own stupidity among the rocks. But he was in great care and felt terrific now. In fact, he felt as if he never had felt any better. Had he been given some Idunish apple juice? God knows. A few phone-calls from the Chancellor in Natopia later, Nathaniel had been informed that a brother had been found. His father Nathan had fathered another son, Naian, in the mysterious Hazel forests, and the Chancellor advised Nathaniel to immediately return home. As a constitutional monarch, he feared that he had no other choice right now. He had lunch with the High King's daughter, herself a Queen and seeming female chaperone of Nathaniel's trip to Stormark. He profoundly apologized for having to leave so soon, and promised that the trip to Humlebaek would have to wait until things had calmed down and his aunt had married Aesileif's brother. "But that will be soon," Nathaniel smiled, "I will of course return to the wedding!"
  8. "Of course," said the emperor and brought the storjarla to one of the stones hidden by a few low-laying branches. "Look here, see this runes? They're old Hurmu runes, quite unlike the Storish ones. Here it says..." Nathaniel bowed himself down, dusted off some of the dirt on the stone, and just as he was about to stand up tall again, he hit his head on the branch above, which brought him down to the stone again. Nathaniel's head cracked, and blood started streaming down the stone. A bodyguard came running fast, and applied first aid. "My Lady!" he shouted. "He's still unconscious. We need medical assistance immediately."
  9. Nathaniel knocked on the door. Esther showed him the pictures too, "Isn't he cute?" she said and smiled. "Yes, very much so," Nathaniel replied, smiling too. "He looks much more blond than last I saw him!" He chuckled. "Aunt Esther -- please, I need to speak with you. A matter of state importance. Lady Aesileif, will you please excuse us for a moment?" "Of course," the storjarla replied. Nathaniel and Esther headed out, went to Nathaniel's cabin. "I have appointed you Natopia's ambassador to Stormark. It's only temporary. Once you're married, it would be bad form to keep you ambassador... but really now I need someone I can trust. The Natopian government wants to negotiate a treaty with Stormark..." "Yes, Nathaniel... that's perfectly alright. As I was saying to Aesileif, I was hoping to go to Haraldsborg tomorrow anyway." "Alright, thanks. Stay in contact though?" "Of course... I love you as if you were my own son." Nathaniel hugged his aunt, and while doing so sobbed a little. "Damn it, I have to regain my composure..." "Shhh...." was all that Esther said. Two minutes later, Nathaniel had written the necessary papers. "Here you are. Take them to the High King tomorrow. Sorry about my behaviour." "My love, there is nothing to be sorry about. I am to be sorry... I haven't considered your feelings much. I will be better." The hugged and parted, and Esther went back to Aesileif. Nathaniel stayed in his cabin and started a telepresence conference with the Imperial Council at Lindstrom. Due to the differences in time zones, this was the earliest time possible.
  10. While touring the Haithabu Cathedral and market, Nathaniel walked closely to Lady Aesileif. His aunt was feeling unwell, she wasn't used to much activities since her time in hospital so she decided to rest. "I forgot to thank you for your eloquent presentation of these grounds from when we were flying. I am afraid I have to upset you... your telling didn't really do this majesty any justice," said Nathaniel and gave Aesileif his best smile. "Also, I just spoke to my aunt. She has decided to give the brooch of Tårbaek to her husband, as well as some other Humlebaek regalia... I'm afraid I didn't quite catch actually what. She'll collect them from the family vault when we get there." The entourage were served some refreshments, while a newsreel at the market stated that Aesileif's son had been elected king of Batavians. "Wow, my Lady, my warmest congratulations for your son!"
