  1. High Oracle Itziar smiled as the Duchess seemed to try and pick her words carefully, "I am not sure I'd call it a reign, perhaps more of a stewardship. After all I am merely guiding us for a short time, beyond that everything is open for change." She had seen for herself how swift that change could come having witnessed her Queen effectively destroy the mistakes of the past in next to no time following the High Oracle's uncovering of corruption. "Now I believe that you would like to learn about our faith utilising some kind of scholar programme. If that is the case we would be delighted to welcome some of your team to our Temples." In her mind this could be a chance to help spread the faith, they could maybe convince some of these scholars to embrace their faith and as such has an influence beyond the borders of Morheim. "So perhaps we can make this part of a wider educational exchange, something that could maybe expand out beyond our lands." Queen Julia began. "I am going to propose that we reach an arrangengent where any student may apply for University places in either nation. As such I'd like you to consider this." Queen Julia the Younger handed the document over. "How do you think this is?" She asked confident that it would allow young people in her nation exciting new oppurtunities while maintaining a control over their own education systems.
  2. Don't worry didn't think it was. What I mean by developing relationships its beyond things like having embassies etc. I mean having oppurtunities for interact. If I give an example from another region I've been very active in. Nations RP out things like significant events in their nation, so in the past I've hosted a festival based around my nations interest in arts and crafts and the fact they have diamond mines. This became a Jewel of the Desert festival and a chance for nations to meet in an informal setting, various off hand meetings etc. Similarly things like royal weddings and the like. Most of the Foreign Affairs threads just seem back and forths of setting up things.
  3. For me one issue is that its hard to have relations between nations. I've been here a while and struggle to find ways of interacting with other nations beyond a few who I'm friends with for a while elsewhere around NSland. If we're having international organisations they'd need to be built on international relations existing and so therefore we'd need to have more interactions between nations prior to them. In my view we do have a UNESCO through the organisation my RP set up, sadly not on PC at the moment so can't find the link. We also have an environmental treaty that was put forward. These were both RP'd out. I think a bigger concern rather than having loads of international organisations and standards is to promote people having active ongoing and interesting RP oppurtunities with newer people.
  4. QUEEN ATTENDS EXECUTIONS Following several weeks of trials and investigations the enquiry into the corruption within the Temple of Elements has been concluded. In total 27 former members of the Priesthood (13 Female/14 male) were convicted on various charges with 10 (7male/3 female) receiving the death penalty. The remaining 17 faced prison sentences ranging from 5 years to 35 years. A further 18 people (10 Female/8 Male) were found not-guilty yet despite this verdict were ejected from the Priesthood by Queen Julia III who stated "It is my task as Queen and Guardian of the Elements to ensure that our Priesthood is pure and beyond reproach. Even those with the stench of comradeship with the guilty must be prevented from preaching or teaching in our Temples. After all these people must have known of the practices taking place against the faith and they did nothing. In my eyes while they may not be guilty they are not worthy to work for the Gods." Later in the day the Queen attended Thale Gaol where the first round of 8 executions took place. This was the first time in around 200 years that a member of the royal family has attended an execution. Speaking upon leaving the executions the Queen spoke briefly with the Press stating, "My task as Guardian is to be the enforcer of the Gods among those who would teach their ways. I have a duty as monarch of Morheim to sign the Order of Execution for every single person sentenced to death by the judges of our nation following a fair trial. Satisfied that these individuals had been given exactly that I had no hesitation in signing the orders. As I am the one effectively ending their lives I must have the courage to see through the actions I have begun. It is therefore only fitting that I look the people who have committed crimes against my people in the eye before they are executed." The Queen did not confirm whether she would attend every execution stating only. "The business of purifying the faith is coming to an end and I must therefore return to my duties as Queen ensuring Morheim prospers as best it can. That will be my focus moving forward."
  5. Julia had never really left Morheim much, the odd family holiday here or there but usually then without the full compliment as it was very rare the nations security agency allowed all members of the Royal family to be in one place at the same time. She fully intended as she grew into her reign to begin visiting more and more places and she hoped that her younger sister Beatrix would have more of a chance of a normal teenage life then she had. "If your proposing some kind of school exchange then I think that would be a nice idea, although my understanding is that your schools are girls only, if that is the case then we may need to think how best to do things as I would want all my people to be able to have fair access to such an opportunity" She finished her drink and looked at the mantlepiece clock that showed that it was time for them to make their way to the Temple of the Elements to meet the High Oracle. It wasn't a long drive to the Temple, it sat on the edge of the parkland that the Palace sat in and infact the drive saw them never leave the actual Palace grounds, Julia would have walked but her security advised her that it was better to drive and the fact the route took a rather scenic route across the park made it seem like a much longer drive. High Oracle Itziar Gebara was waiting for them on the steps of the Temple, a group of worshippers being momentarily halted from entering the subterranian complex while the Queen and her guests went inside. Julia bowed respectfully to the High Oracle with a hand placed on her heart, Itziar Gebara returned the bow before the pair embraced as friends. "Duchess Lena this is Her Holiness The High Oracle" Julia said almost proudly. "Duchess Lena" The High Oracle nodded respectfully. "and this is?" she asked as she smiled at Karin and waited for the Queen to make an introduction. "I understand you want to know more about our faith so perhaps you'd like a tour of the complex, or would you prefer to begin with a visit to our library?"
  6. Julia accepted the gift of the spice but wasn't really sure what the diplomatic thing to do with it was, should she taste some now but then what if it the maghical properties it proclaimed were real and somehow it triggered a change in her during these sessions. What on the other hands if she hated the taste and spat it out, would that be an insult to the guests. She considered her approach for a while and then simply determined the best course of action was to say "Thank you for the kind gift. I am sure that our own Oracle will be interested to discover what this spice is like when next I meet with her." She figured diverting the responsibility onto the head of her faith was a more tactful response. She listened carefully to the description of the Bene Gesserit faith by her guests, a lot of it she had read herself but hearing it direct from the followers, and in this case the inner circle, of the faith made things much clearer. It was in Julia's mind a faith based around fear of what was coming as well as a hope in that evil could be avoided and in someway she admired that. Practical solutions to a challenging problem. "My own duty within our faith is more of that of a policeman, keeping a watchful eye on its security from threats outside of it and inside of it, sadly as of late it has been the threat of those within the faith that I have had to worry about. While I have the Oracle to guide me in my decision making, in the path my own soul takes I have the duty that those advising my subjects are as pure as they claim we should be. Historically speaking its been a mainly traditional role, sadly it seems that many in the faith have used our nations devotion to it and my Mother's illness to take advantage of the power it has in our society. It's something I'm keen to ensure doesn't ever happen again. As such I would not consider myself like your Reverend Mother, while the Elementium faith guides my thoughts and actions I am not what I would consider tied to its doctrine as a way of leading our nation. I suspect this is something your Reverend Mother has to consider more than I do. In many ways our nations faith and our nations government are two separate entities but ones that are closely related." "Perhaps we should set out where we both would like this meeting to head and then once we have an agenda a time for each of us to reflect might be an idea. While we are doing that we can go and meet the new Oracle who I know will be much better placed to answer your questions regarding our faith."
  7. COURT SENTENCE TWO TO DEATH FOR CRIMES OF RELIGION The Court at Thale has today sentenced two former Priests to be executed after being found guilty of crimes committed during their time in the Priesthood. The first to be sentenced to execution was Oroitz Agramunt who was found guilty of embezzeling around $2,800,000 from the Temple of the Elements, coercing people to give him money by utilising his position and sexually exploiting youngsters. The judge presiding over his case said, "Agramunt has been given a very special position within our society. His position embodied the ultimate trust a man can have and he utilised it not for the betterment of his Queendom, the faithful under his guidance or more importantly the Gods. He has failed as a human being on every level and as such he is beyond redemption and so I have no hesitation in setting out the harshest penalties possible for those who abuse their position in the faith. The priesthood are the closest to the Gods there can be save our Queen, they must and should be held to a higher account and that means failure should bring the ultimate penalty." Two hours later in a second court room another former High Priest, Iñaki Ubiña, was also sentenced to death. He was found guilty of embezzling around $3,000,000 as well as having utilised the Temples connections to run what amounted to an organised crime ring with involvement with illegal gun sales to criminal gangs and drugs. Additionally he was tied to having utilised his contacts to have a rival for High Priest murdered in 1994. The judge who passed sentence stated, "Iñaki Ubiña tried to combine the life of a man of faith with that of a gangster mob boss from some cheesy film. For decades he was able to get away with it because his position sheltered him. Now that shelter has gone and there is no choice other than to face the full force of justice." Queen Julia The Younger was in the court complex to hear the verdicts get passed and it was later confirmed that she has already signed the execution warrants meaning that in 48 hours time both Ubina and Agramunt will be hanged at Thale Gaol. In the early afternoon the Queen released a statement saying, "Our faith teaches us that our job as humans is to ensure that balance exists in the elements Fire, Water, Earth and Fire. Those of us blessed by the Four Gods to hold special sway over this duty have a responsibility to work for the betterment of the planet, the people and ensure the future of our ways. These two degenerates are as far away from the Gods as a human can be. As such they must be removed so the balance can be restored. I have a trust placed in me to be the Guardian of the Faith. That means I must remove those unbalancing the faith and purify the clergy when needed. These two will be the first, possibly not the last, to face the death penalty because of the long term corruption that we have uncovered in the faith. Their deaths will serve as an example to those within positions of power in the Temple of Elements that they must conform to the law just as anyone else must, it will also serve as a beacon to the true believers that we will not tolerate our faith being manipulated by the unjust." A further six trials are expected to be concluded this week.
  8. The Prince hadn't quiet expected the Duchess and her daughter-in-law to be attired almost in a military fashion, nor had he expected them to be rather so blunt. "Of course Your Ladyship" he gestured for the two Kaitainites to follow him and he quickly made his way towards a large waiting SUV. He hadn't been sure whether these Missionara people would have brought their own security or even what their actual relationship with their government was. "Its about a twenty minute ride into the Royal Palace where my sister will be waiting. Thankfully we're going to avoid rush-hour and we've a military escort." Black fatigue wearing soldiers with blue and silver patches were taking up position in vehicles before and after the SUV with a group of four motorcycle outriders flanking the procession. The Morheim government were not expecting trouble, there hadn't been any attacks on government officials in at least 100 years, at least not since Prince Thiago had launched a coup against his own sister in an effort to change the Queendom into a Kingdom. That had failed as the people saw the Prince as nothing but a heretic and after just a few days of violence he'd been executed, a large public burning in the square in front of the Palace. It was told that the fire had been so intense that it had cracked some of the marble in the Palace's huge plaza and that if you looked carefully you could still see feint traces of the scorch marks, silly tales if anything as Prince Isaac had never seen them and he spent as much time in the Plaza as anyone. The vehicle began pulling away and soon they were heading south towards the coast, Isaac loved the coastal roads as the sparkling blue sea on one side contrasted with the Orange groves that littered the hillsides. Soon the hills rolled away into the distance as the car reached sea level and now a long sandy beach, complete with those enjoying the early morning sun was contrasted with the buildings of the city. "Perhaps you can tell me a little of the idea behind your faith." Isaac made small talk. "It's one I have heard little of beyond what you can read on things like Wikipedia. A religion with its own military and scholars sounds fascinating." and a little worrying he thought. He'd heard tales from other religions of them using "Holy Warriors" to spread their faith often at spear point. This was something Elementium had largely ignored, it was a faith that sought to create balance and as such sought not to create waves through the use of violence. "I'd be intrigued to hear particularly about these Truthsayers of yours. As a military man I'm always looking to see what I can learn from the way other nations think." Before long the Palace came into view. As they had been expecting guests the Plaza was heavily patrolled and a temporary guard rail had been installed down the centre. Tourists still milled around enjoying looking at the old inscriptions to national heroes on the walls or the art works. Occasionally a small group of people would lay flowers in one of the notches on a wall, a memorial to a loved one or a beloved famous figure honoured at the heart of the Queendom. Guardsman in black dress uniform patrolled the perimeter and a "no go area" just in front of the Palace. On days when Queen Julia the Younger was not on official business in the Palace it had limited opening for tourists but today they were getting a rather grander sight. The SUV left its guard escort at the gate and made its way up the central area that had been kept free of tourists. Naturally seeing the car many stood at the guard rail keen to get a view inside but the heavily tinted windows prevented that. A group of young school children waved energetically as the car passed seeming not to care that they couldn't tell if their greeting was reciprocated. "It was my Mother who began giving access to the Plaza every day." Isaac began, Julia the Elder still lived however she had made the decision to abdicate the throne after her Multiple Sclerosis (MS) had prevented her doing her duties fully. Julia The Elder still liked to do what she could to support the monarchy but that was nowadays mainly just public appearances on her good days or the occasional speech via radio or TV on matters important to the Queendom. Her daughter, Julia the Younger still courted her advice but that was usually done away from prying eyes. As if on cue the vehicle stopped at the bottom of the stairs as Queen Julia the Younger appeared at the top of the stairs. Her brother sighed slightly, it seemed she was not convinced by advice of those around her to dress in a manner traditionally befitting a Queen instead she wore a black suit with silver pinstripe, white shirt and a pale blue tie similar to her nations flag. Her blonde shoulder length hair was folded into a bun at the nape of her neck and the only Queenly thing about her was elaborate jewelled tie pin and cufflinks. A Light Scout Guardsman opened the car door and saluted his Queen as Prince Isaac exited the car and offered a helping hand to the two guests. "Your Majesty" He bowed to his own sister who he could tell would have tutted at him had there not been guests, "May I present Her Ladyship Lena Atreides and her daughter-in-law Karin Atreides." "I'm very excited your here" Julia extended a hand to each of them warmly. "I can't wait to hear more about your desert home." An aide appeared beside her with two silk wrapped bundles. "Now I've done a little reading. Not much though. I understand your faith is about gaining knowledge if I read things correctly" In many ways Julia was a nerd, especially for History and so Isaac knew his sister would be right. "I'd love you to have these." She handed over the silk wrapped objects before pulling away the firsts wrapping. "This is a handwritten copy of our Holy Book. It was made by a Priest about 200 years ago who saw it as a labour of love to write it by hand" She opened a few pages and the scrawl was decorated with a vast array of patterns and colours. "And this" she whisked away the second covering, "Is a book written by my grand-father, he was a Historian, I think that's where I get my love for the subject from" She chuckled nervously. "I hope you can find them both useful and enjoyable. Please come inside, you must be thirsty" she ushered for the two Kaitainites to flank her as she walked them up the steps and into her home. "Now I thought we could have some iced tea.....I can find other things if you prefer.....and get to know a little about each others nations and then if that seems to go well maybe some talks about setting up some relations. Does that sound OK?" She realised most monarchs would have the gravitas to make that an instruction rather than question, even though she'd been successful with the Laren Conference she still was worried that international diplomacy had too many rules she was yet to get to grips with because of a lack of practice. Along the corridor was a wide double oak door, a red uniformed chamberlain pushed it open and began arranging the drinks, first serving his Queen and then the guests. "Thank you Joachim" the Queen smiled at the man as he bowed and headed to the door to stand post incase she needed anything else. "So where would be a good place for us to begin. Perhaps you could tell me what exactly a Reverend Mother is?"
  9. FORMER HIGH ORACLE FOUND DEAD IN CELL It was announced this morning that the under fire former High Priest of Water Herminio Armando has been found dead in his cell. The 72 year old was found to have strangled himself with his own prison issue trousers just days after formally being charged with various crimes relating to corruption within the Elementium faith. The news comes as a further 16 individuals have been charged today in courts across the nation. The governor of Thale Prison stated, "It is sad that Mr.Armando elected to take this drastic action. I am confident that the review into his death that must now take place will find that the prison did all that could be expected to ensure his safety. We must clearly now take steps to learn from this tragic event and ensure that others in our care facing a similar predicament do not take the same action." It was also confirmed that the former High Priest is to be denied a burial plot on the Isle of Laren where traditionally High Priests of the elements can be elected to be buried. The decision on who may be buried there falls to the monarch. A spokeswoman for the Palace stated, " We wish to avoid a situation where Mr.Armando is offered the traditional burial arrangements only for him to be found to have been involved in the charges levelled against him. Such discovery will have forced the exhumation of the body and its removal to a more suitable site. The Queen felt that denying the right to a burial of the sacred Isle at this point would perhaps save the family the trauma of removing the body at a later date. Naturally the case against Mr.Armando will be followed through and should he be found to be free of any wrong doing naturally the tradition of the Isle of Laren resting place will be extended." The 16 individuals charged today have been taken to the Thale Military Barracks where they will be kept under a Military Police guard while the investigation into Mr.Armando's death takes place at the civilian prison. Lt-Col Muinoz who is leading the current investigation stated, "Normally we deal with soldiers who have turned up drunk after a weekend of partying and haven't recovered by Monday, or those who get into physical altercations on base. Small level stuff really. It is an exception to have prisoners for long periods and so we are adapting slightly to meet the needs of these people who to date have not been convicted of any crime." The prison at the barracks houses 58 military prisoners at present with most of them serving sentences of less than 3 months. While the military inmates face a schedule of 6 daily inspections, rigorous physical training and military retraining it was confirmed that this would not be extended to the 16 members of the clergy locked up there. MILITARY GO GREEN The Ministry of Defence today announced that they have completed work on the acquisition of a new light strike and patrol vehicle. The ESV, or Electronic Strike Vehicle, will hopefully enter service soon after a prototype having been evaluated by the nations elite 1st Light Scouts. The vehicle is lightly armoured but is capable of mounting three weapons points that could feature a minigun, anti-tank missile or grenade launcher. It is capable of carrying four soldiers and even capable of launching its own helicopter style drone from a rear platform. The vehicle is electrical powered and capable of reaching speeds of 60mph in 3 seconds while covering a distance of around 200km without the need to recharge. The vehicle can charge itself off solar panels carried within the vehicle, a process that takes 14 hours, or alternatively can be charged just like an standard electric car. It was also confirmed that the batteries will be supplied from Elegy factories on the outskirts of the city of Tenma in @Sunset Sea Islands and that the lithium used within them shall come from Solitude Islands. Prince Isaac, an Air Force officer, has also tested the vehicle and stated, "It is a rather nippy little vehicle. It was a lot of fun to drive and I can imagine when fully loaded with weaponry it can be a useful tool. It was also amazingly quiet which I can see being rather useful to a unit like the Light Scouts. I'm please following my sister's efforts to create the Environmental Treaty of Laren that we can extend the principles of that to the military, frankly we're not always the most environmentally friendly, but every little helps." It is expected that an initial order of 100 was placed with Don Blas Vehicles who have made many of the Armies previous mobility vehicles.
  10. To:- Reverened Mother Erin Atwald We thank you for your recent message and are more than happy to explore closer relationships with any nation. We have seen your recent Deceleration of the Sands and believe we share many ideas. As such I am delighted to extend to your two scholars an invitation to meet myself and the new High Oracle in Thale. We look forward to your delegates arrivals and are hopeful of fruitful talks. Best Wishes Queen Julia III of Morheim _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thale had not welcomed foreign guests for quiet some time and Queen Julia The Younger hadn't meet with any foreign delegates since the Laren Environmental Conference. She was rather excited for this meeting, Kiataine sat across the other side of the world and its culture seemed rather intriguing. She already had many questions that she would like to get to the bottom of and find out more about these Bene Gesserit. She hoped to also impress the new High Oracle, while the Queen was the most powerful person in Morheim the High Oracle held significant influence and Julia considered herself a pious person. She had always tried to follow the teachings of the Elementium faith by showing the Four Gods respect and like many of the people of Morheim had been disastisfied of late with the way their Temple had been run. To Julia the meeting today marked a fresh start for Elementium. She had dispatched her older brother Prince Isaac to the airport just outside the capital of Thale to welcome the guests. Isaac was three years older than his sister and filled his time with his service in the Air Force, he stood chatting to a few Airmen from the service who were forming the welcoming party for their guests. While Thale International Airport was a civilian operation two fighter jets sat ready to escort the Kaitaine aircraft in once it reached Morheim's airspace. It was when the aircraft took off that Isaac began running mentally through what he would say when the guests arrived, he figured he'd have about twenty minutes and so began going over and over what his sister had told him. Time seemed to fly by and soon he could see the guests aircraft descending towards the runway and just moments later the band began to play. Isaac waited patiently for the aircraft to stop at the point marked for this special occasion and went over in his mind the introductions. "Good morning. My sister has asked me to welcome you to Morheim and escort you to the Palace where she is very much looking forward to meeting you both. Please step this way." He gestured to a waiting vehicle.
  11. FIRST CORRUPTION CASE HEARINGS BEGIN Following the arrest of former High Priest of Water Herminio Armando a further 15 arrests among the Priesthood have taken place. This morning the 16 accused individuals appeared in the Queen's Court in Thale, the nations highest judicial body, to begin proceedings against them. While this initial hearing was not to determine the innocence or guilt but rather to formerly place charges against them. Armando was formally charged with abusing his position as a Priest to gain favours from law enforcement, embezzlement of the Temple's funds, fraud and also an ancient crime called "corruption of the faithful". This final charge is levelled as Armando is accused of purposely misrepresenting the position of the faith for either financial or personal gain. In this case it is understood that he used his position as a Priest to advance the career of his son as well as using the position to influence arranged marriages for financial gain. Should Armando be found guilty he could potentially face the death penalty however this is highly unlikely to be the case as no one has been charged with the crime of "corruption of the faithful" in several hundred years. The lawyer representing Armando requested bail however this was denied as the judge felt that "It is highly likely that with the network of patronage and nepotism that Mr.Armando is accused of building up that he has sufficient means at his disposal to abscond. As such he will be placed in custody until the trial begins." It was later confirmed that the trial will begin next Monday as the Queen is keen to proceed quickly
  12. ARRESTS MADE FOR RELIGIOUS CORRUPTION Following the new High Oracle requesting that Queen Julia The Younger begin investigations into corruption throughout the Elementium faith there have today been a series of arrests across the nation. In total 16 people have been arrested in raids carried out by members of the 1st Light Scouts under the supervision of the Royal Military Police. The elite military unit normally operate as commando's on special forces operations as well as providing security for the Royal family, they have however been tasked with supporting the Royal Military Police with their work into this corruption. The first arrest was reported at around 6am when a team of Scouts entered the estate of former High Priest of Water Herminio Armando . The 72 year old who retired from the Priesthood in 2017 was later brought out in a police vehicle. An announcement came soon after from the Royal Military Police stating, "We have solid intelligence that a sum of around $500,000 from the Temple of the Elements has passed through the accounts of Mr.Armando in a manner inconsistent with normal practice. The payment comes at a time when he had both the opportunity and the means to transfer these funds." The next few hours saw several other arrests, mainly of local Temple Priests who are accused of taking funds from their congregation and using it for their own ends. Queen Julia The Younger took time to visit the Light Scouts following the various arrests and said, "Today we have begun the process of once more purifying our faith. The new High Oracle deserves a strong foundation on which to build her time as our religious guide. All measures will be taken to ensure that those we have placed in positions of trust because of their seemingly strong knowledge of scripture and ritual are worthy of that trust. Those who go against that trust may as well strike me in my heart with a dagger. Those willing to become fat on the generosity of the faithful deserve every punishment the courts determine they deserve." The Queen has ordered that the nations judges fast-track the court cases relating to this matter as much as possible. "We need this to move quickly, we need this to be draw a line under the last 12 months of chaos and suspicion in the faith." The new High Oracle today visited the Temple of the Elements where it is believed she meet several key members of the faith's administrative staff. Following the meeting High Oracle Miriam Busto stated "The Elementium faith has faced many more dangerous challenges throughout our history. We face great challenges ahead. Now is a time for us to prepare to take back control of our souls from the corruption of the past. Once Her Majesty has carried out her duties as the Guardian of the Faith I will begin to look at celebrating our faith and returning it to a central thought in everyday life. Morheim once had a vibrant religious life. The Isle of Laren is our sacred birthplace and Queen Julia The Younger placed it squarly on the global stage by hosting the Laren Environmental Conference there. That was a chance to show the youth of Morheim that the faith and their home is still as relevant today as it was at the beginning of creation. We have a long road before us, but it is one I hope we can walk together with a smile on our faces."
  13. PRIESTESS OF AIR NAMED NEW ORACLE Following only 17 hours of deliberations the Temple of the Elements have named a 55 year old Priestess of Air as the new High Oracle. Miriam Busto was formerly the Priestess of Air at the Northern mountain town of Deusto and was at one time the spiritual adviser to Queen Julia The Elder. At just after sunrise this morning the ceremonial horn connected to the Temple of the Elements was blown and echoed across the city of Thale waking many of the cities inhabitants who hurried to the streets to find out who would now be responsible for the spiritual well being of the nation. Roughly 30 minutes later Queen Julia The Younger was seen being escorted through the city streets by her personnel guard en route to be the first to be told the name of the new High Oracle. Upon arriving at the Temple the doors slowly opened and the Queen was the only person who entered before reappearing ten minutes later. It became clear very quickly that none of the clergy from Temples in Thale had been appointed as upon returning to the Royal Palace the Queen immediately departed on the hour long journey North via helicopter. Local news channels in Deusto soon began informing the world that the Queen had landed in their town and by the time she had made her way to the residence of Priestess Miriam Busto crowds had begun to gather at the various residences of the clergy in the city hopeful that their particular favourite would be named as the High Oracle. The Queen was photographed entering Priestess Miriam's residence before appearing just after midday with the newly appointed High Oracle on Busto's balcony. Queen Julia The Younger was first to address the crowd saying. "The High Preists and Priestesses of the elements have recieved guidance and have in their widsom determined that Priestess of Air Miram Busto shall be our nations guide. As the Guardian of the Elements I pledge myself to protecting her as she seeks to bring us ever closer to the Gods." Then the new High Oracle appeared on the balcony to huge cheers.High Oracle Busto was dressed in her ceremonial attire of white and gold dress however had the High Oracle's crown on her head as she addressed the crowd for the first time in her new role. "I am honoured to have been selected to serve as High Oracle. Our faith has faced a testing time after the corruption that High Oracle Itziar Gebara permitted to seep into our faiths upper hierachy. This shall be my first task, to ensure that all those who serve the Gods do so with respect and honour be they a mere member of a youth choir or the High Priests themselves. As such I have already enacted my first action as High Oracle and that is requesting a Royal Commission into the actions of Itziar Gerbara, following that I have asked Her Majesty, as Guardian of the Elements to conduct a series of investigations into key members of the faith that have been surrounded by accusations. Her Majesty has given me her full assurance that she will leave no stone unturned in rooting out and then punishing anyone corrupt." Later in the day upon returning to the Royal Palace in Thale Queen Julia the Younger released a statement saying. "Our nation has always been ruled by a monarch who has held the power of making and enforcing laws for the nation. They have also held the responsibility of following and protecting the faith, be that against physical harm or doctrinal harm. In this case I have been asked to ensure that those who misuse our religion do not get away with it. I am proud to be entrusted with this task and have assigned to special duties a team of 50 members of the Military Police along with 20 members of my 1st Light Scouts to weed out anyone who has been misusing their position of power. Old and ancient laws exist in this regard and have served us well." It is thought the Queen is referring to the "Religious Corruption Act of 1504" which permitted any member of the Priesthood or anyone granted privilege or responsibility by them to be severely punished. The maximum penalty under the act is reserved for someone who has used the "materials or locations of the faith to spread the knowledge or word of other faiths" and the penalty for doing so was "death by strangulation" whether the Queen is willing to execute those found guilty of corruption is still being discussed by many with those who know her well suggesting that the Queen may use the Act for prosecuting those who have misused the faith however that she will not utilise the death penalty, something that has not been used in Morheim since 1986. High Oracle Busto will be officially blessed on Wednesday at a major ceremony. NAVY TO INVESTIGATE NEW ADDITION Thale Royal Dockyards have today announced that they are undertaking a review of a older concept that the Admiralty have shown new interest in. "The Workhorse Class" ship was first suggested in the early 2000's but was passed over however today it seems the plans are likely to be given a new chance of becoming reality. A spokesman for the company which has produced the vast majority of Morheim naval vessels for the past 100 years said, "The aim of the vessel is to merge new technologies seemlessly with older ones and form them into a handy package capable of undertaking a vast array of mission types." The recently released design image seems to be a cross between some kind of Destroyer style fore with a carrier style aft, the concept was explained further by the Dockyards saying, "The ship will primarily utilise afleet of airborne drones, these will be kept below deck and largely can be in kit form. Additionally hangar space for helicopters will be avaliable allowing them to carry out anti-submarine roles. We have also futureproofed the concept by making it a ship capable of utilising VSTOL fighter aircraft. The ship also will contain a small dock allowing it to put ashore a small detachment of Marines or allow them to engage in ship to ship activities such as drug searches. The front of the ship will be about firepower with it maintaining a 155 mm cannon, a 20 cell VLS launcher as well as a variety of torpedo launches and missile canisters. We do not envisage the ship operating for long periods alone but do believe that it will provide a highly flexible and versatile asset to the Navy." The ship would be the first new acquistition for the Navy since 2009.
  14. TEMPLE OF THE ELEMENTS TO NAME NEW HIGH ORACLE The Queendom of Morheim's religious establishment, the Temple of the Elements, will begin the process of naming a new High Oracle this week. The position of High Oracle has been vacant for close to 12 months following the abdication of High Oracle Itziar Gebara following allegations of financial embezzlement. The Temple of the Elements have spent the last 12 months ensuring that a full investigation into Gebara's actions have been carried out and that all accounts are in order before beginning the process of naming his successor. The process will see the High Priests of Water and Earth convene with the High Priestesses of Air and Fire to determine who from within the ranks of the clergy. The four leaders of the individual elements will remain within the underground Temple of the Elements until they reach a decision. Today they will gather inside where Her Majesty Queen Julia III, Guardian of the Elements, will formally task them with the selection before the Queen leaves and the four are sealed inside. Once they reach their decision they shall blow the ceremonial horn contained within the Temple which attracts the attention of the Four Gods. At that point Queen Julia will be the first to be told the name of the new High Oracle and will then travel to inform the new High Oracle of their appointment. The lack of a religious leader has drawn criticism from those across the nation as it has been the first time in history the faith has lacked a leader. One such critic was Air Chief Marshall Albert Größel who commands the nation's Air Force, "Our people have lacked religious guidance for far to long. Our Queen requires their input to ensure she protects the Holy Land for the Elementium faith in the correct manner and she has been left to her own devices. While I respect Her Majesties devotion to the faith she is just 22 years of age and not a scholar of the faith like a Priest or Priestess is." It is expected that as soon as the new High Oracle is in place their induction to the role will take place within a week with a large celebration.
  15. Having listened to @Tagmatium Rules delegate Narses speak Julia thought for a moment, "Well I have a suggestion maybe when it comes to people signing the treaty" she began to explain, "Those of us in the position such as my own will sign the treaty and that means as of the moment we've signed it we're committing our nations to do everything reasonable to hit these targets. Those of you in a position similar to yourself can sign it "in principle" it means your publically throwing your support behind the treaty which will hopefully send a message to your homelands that this is something we should be doing. It also then means your capable of placing it before whatever individual or body needs to approve it." She hoped this would be acceptable. "As for things we've not considered please feel free to make any suggestions you think would be worth us following. I can't speak for the others but I'd prefer to get this right first time and I'm in no rush to get things finished if it means we can get a perfect treaty."
  16. Julia looked around at the various delegates before turning to the @Rihan delegate, "I think at the moment asking for people to make a perscribbed contribution based purely on their GDP would be a mistake. Some nations who will be members of this agreement will be in a position where they will need to use the funding internally in their own nation. I'd hope nations would however consider making a kind of annual voulentary donation to show their commitment to this. As for how it would be funded." She turned to face towards Talya from @Tikva "As for people funding their commitment to this not everything requires bags of money" she smiled, "Cutting down food waste, I'll give you an example of something we're trying in Morheim, we launched a mobile phone app where if you have some food your not planning on using you take a photo of it, post it on the app and anyone in your local area can message you and claim it. It cost our government nothing but has seen for example some smaller baking companies giving locals the about to go stale bread at the close of the day, they get put on the app and someone uses them, as such its less food going to waste. Will it help us reduce food waste by 50%, of course not, but its a start and it costs nothing to do. A lot of the targets can be moved towards with simple measures such as that or just clever legislation. Reducing plastics, ban certain types of packaging, green spaces in urban areas you can achieve by insisting new developments feature gardens such as a roof top garden or something. We then pass the responsibility onto construction companies not just ourselves. I'm excited to see what ideas the general public of Morheim come up with if they know the government are likely to support good ideas." She was rather positive about how all this was going. "So unless there are any further questions, suggestions for an edit or additions then would people like me to prepare a signing ceremony?"
  17. Having listened to the various people around the table Julia scribbled down a few things as they spoke. "If I can first address the comments of our @Tagmatium Rules guest." she turned her body to face Narses. "I think we can accomodate some kind of permanent body, be that a Council or liason group, call it what you will. Maybe we can make the Institute I suggest making have a multi-national team of researchers but each nations team lead by a person appointed by their government. That institute could have a permanent HQ somewhere, I'd be happy to find a place in Thale if need be. They could then be kept informed of the latest research and this could mean we have a very well informed council of sorts capable of reacting to situations that require attention." She paused for a moment, "Now as I think the best approach is a target driven treaty it makes it hard to include anything about protecting specific animals or plants. However I think in a roundabout way thats taken care of. For example by creating extra woodland that creates new habitats, by cutting down things such as ocean acidity that means habitats such as coral reefs will be protected and thus ensure life thrives. Plastic is a great killer of wildlife and cutting that down will protect many species. Now that doesn't mean we can't do more. Another idea I've had bouncing around is the creation of a kind of international agreement on animal protection, perhaps even creating a NGO to investigate and tackle the trade in endangered species. That is maybe something if you have an interest too that we can create together in addition to this. I just felt specific targets on animals would be difficult to create in a manner that all nations could be monitored and scrutinised." She hoped her explanation had satisfied the representative. She next turned to the @Rihan representative. "It is my hope we see lots of larger companies and wealthy individuals keen to cement a legacy helping us. However I think tying a commitment of nations to match fund or even go further and multiply the contributions of private donors could be problematic. If we have less wealthy nations sign up then would it be fair to place this burden upon them while they are also trying to fulfil the targets. I think however perhaps we should all commit to some kind of GDP linked percentage being a minimal annual contribution, I'd be open to any suggestions on that front." Julia gazed at the others hoping for some suggestions on that front.
  18. OOC- Sorry for the delay folks, had a new internet provider and apparently they can't work a calendar so been without WiFi for a while. The Queen listened to the various points and discussions being made. "What I think the best approach to take will be is not one entrenching one method over another or one policy to fit all nations, that would be unreasonable. Each of us sat here today faces different challenges and barriers, but what we also posses are different ideas and examples. I am confident that between those of us sat here we can achieve great things. I am naturally aware of the reliance we have on oil at present but we live in a world now where the prospect of a life without the stuff is not a chance any more it is a certainty, and the nations who can best prepare for that day are the ones who will be the best placed to thrive following its demise. Now just as a drug addict is not safe to go cold turkey we too can not just stop our dependency on oil overnight. So what I suggest is a target driven initiative. This also will take onboard the fact we all start from very different foundations, and seeing as financial concerns are playing a role perhaps they can be reassured this way. Therefore I would like to present you with this draft." She opened a thick leather folder and handed around copies of a document she'd typed up a few days earlier. Recognizing that our world is currently dependent on non-renewable resources Understanding that a time will come in the future when these resources are depleted Convinced that climate change is a man-made phenomenon Concerned that levels of pollution of all kinds are raising The signatory nations of this agreement agree to do all that is within their powers to fulfil the following aims. 1. Limit global temperature increases to within 2.0C (3.6F) of those recorded during the 19th Century. 2. Limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity to the same levels that trees, soil and oceans can absorb naturally by 2070. 3. Remove 75% of plastic packaging by 2025. 4. Remove all fossil fuelled road vehicles by 2040 5. Reduce pollution caused by air travel by 35% by 2030. 6. Create 3million square km of new forests by 2040. 7. Remove at least 40% of plastic from the oceans by 2040. 8. Nations with a GDP per capita of $40,000 or more to produce at least 70% of their electricity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2050. Nations with a GDP per capita lower than $40,000 to aim for 50% by 2060. 9. Reduce pollution caused by public transport to zero by 2040. 10. The amount of green spaces within urban areas to increase 10% by 2030. 11. Reduce food waste by 50% by 2040. 12. All students to receive education on how to better protect the environment by 2021. 13. Halt or reverse the trend of ocean acidification by 2030. 14. For each nation to have 10% of their Exclusive Economic Zone protected as marine reserve by 2050. In order to help nations achieve these aims the following shall be established I - An Environmental Bank . It is expected but not compulsory for signatory nations to make an annual donation to this bank. The Environmental Bank may also accept funds from philanthropic contributors of all kinds. a)This Bank shall be overseen by a committee made up of one representative of each nation. b)Any nation, including non-signatories, may approach the Bank for an interest free loan to fund any project designed at meeting the aims of this treaty. c) The committee shall vote on whether to approve the funding and a simple majority shall be needed to release the funds. d) Nations receiving funding are required to present regular reports on the progress of funded projects. II- The Environmental Review Conference - All signatory nations to meet every two years to review each nations progress towards these aims and share research. This conference shall be open to all non-signatory nations. Furthermore targets may be adjusted by a majority vote dependent on new research. III - The International Environmental Institute - An institute made up of members of all signatory nations who shall undertake research projects on behalf of the members. It shall have a seat at the Conference and act independently of national control. It shall be free to make any recommendations that it wishes. It shall also spread best practice between all nations. IV - The Technology Exchange - This programme shall accept donations of equipment and repurpose it to other nations in need. This shall allow poorer nations to access significant support in improving some of their systems. This treaty shall come into force 30days from signing.
  19. Julia was rather excited, her Queendom hadn't really engaged much in global politics, content to stick in the past to trade and research. Now she was welcoming the first delegate from @Rihan to visit Morheim as far as she was aware. "Good Morning" she said with a smile. "I truly hope we can form some kind of agreement, but also get to know each other rather better. I know Morheim has rather been absent from international affairs and as such neglected international relations. I hope I can kill two birds with one stone." She paused suddenly realising the words she'd said, "Maybe just not birds from this island." She said rather red faced. "If you'd care to head inside I'm sure they've a fire going." A junior Army Officer from the Light Scouts escorted Jovis tr'Anaka inside and found him a place in what looked like a large lounge with sofas arranged in a horse shoe around a roaring fire the sweet smell of the wood filling the room. The officer brought him a cup of tea and some ginger biscuits while outside Julia began greeting the next delegate. "Talya Shoshan of @Tikva" an aide whispered in the Queen's ear. It was one advantage of using the island, they could control who landed in what order and the Queen knew exactly who would be stepping out. It gave the youngster a small boost of confidence being able to apply the briefing details so directly. "Thank you for attending" the Queen began, "I'm glad your nation have attended I understand you've begun taking measures already to use renewables, its something that may come in useful during the talks." She commented remembering the details from the dark brown cardboard folder her Secretary had given her this morning. "If you pop inside Jovis tr'Anaka from Rihan has already arrived, I look forward to joining you shortly." She watched as a second Light Scouts officer took Talya inside, introduced them to Jovis and brought more tea and biscuits. Finally it was the turn of Paulos Narses of @Tagmatium Rules, "Welcome to our island" Julia had been told this would be the final helicopter for the time being, she was rather disappointed that it would be just the four of them but from "small acorns giant oaks grew" she remembered one of her father's favourite phrases. "I had hoped to be knee deep in delegates by now" she added as she personally escorted Paulos inside. "But we'll just have to be the trialblazers" she smiled reassuringly as they entered the lounge. Julia made sure everyone was introduced and sat down next to Talya and poured Paulos a tea from a white china pot that stood on the centre of a low table, she then poured one for herself before offering the plate of biscuits around. "Well I must say I'd hoped this lounge would have been packed with delegates by now, but a nice little gathering can probably get things set up far easier than a mighty gathering of nations. We can then work together to spread whatever we agree on across the globe and then hopefully see a second conference in a few years time swelled well beyond this." She began hopefully. " Now if I can begin by explaining my vision for this gathering and then fingers crossed we can get a few more people in here by then." She hadn't been informed of anyone else being inbound but was hopeful they may pick one or two up later. "What I hope to do is get a series of targets on matters ranging from food waste to fossil fuel use, to protecting fishing stocks to reducing green house gases. Now once we've got some targets on the table we need to look at how we can support each other to achieve them, be that technological advice, sharing best practice, carrying out research or student exchanges. I also have an idea for what I'm provisionally calling a Green Bank, a multi-national fund that would support research by small companies into such technology such as cleaning up the oceans, cutting down on fossil fuel use or even such projects as one company in Morheim trying to develop a bacteria that will eat plastic. Many great ideas are being left behind because of a lack of funds." She could feel herself on the verge of beginning to wander with her thoughts and so stopped. "The reason I picked this island is its the most perfectly green place I can think of. The people of this Holy Island live as green as anyone I'm aware of on the planet, they love nature, revere life and see themselves as the Guardians of Gods creation. Now I know you won't have the same religious outlook as us but the way this island is could be a dream for the whole world's attitude. So does anyone have any ideas for our talks beyond setting some targets and establishing a Green Bank, and maybe more importantly, how do we get more people to support whatever we agree on here today."
  20. The Isle of Laren may have seemed an odd choice for a series of talks on the environment but in Queen Julia's mind it made sense. The purpose of the conference was to discuss and set some targets about how to ensure that the world was protected for generations to come and the fact that at least to her faith it was here on this Isle that all creation began. The isle was off the southern tip of Morheim and despite its rather large size it was home to just 1000 people. The island already had strict controls over what could be done there and the people who had elected to make the island their home, people often referred to be Morheimians as The Caretakers because of the way they tried to live in harmony with the nature present on the island. The royal family had built a retreat here in the 1700's and Julia could actually count on the fingers of one hand how many times she'd visited. The staff had arrived a week earlier and spent the time sweeping out the cobwebs and making the place look more lived in. On the day the conference would begin the lawn behind would be used as a helicopter landing pad to which delegates would be ferried by Air Force helicopter as they arrived at Thale International Airport. The arrangements may not have been the most practical but the venue would serve to illustrate some of the issues that Julia hoped to bring up and that could be a rather useful technique. On the morning put aside for the meeting it was the Queen's brother Prince Isaak who greeted the arrivals. He was five years older than his sister but in Morheim the throne passed down the female line as after all it was women's blood who nourished the new born thus ensuring the families blood remained pure as it passed down over the generations. He was actually happy as Prince, he had few royal duties beyond shaking hands and could concentrate on his career flying in the Air Force. A band made up of Marines stood ready to play the national anthems of the nation arriving and as each deplaned at the airport Isaak saluted them, shook their hand and made small talk with them as they were shown the way to the waiting helicopter. It was one of the fleet of five that served the royals and from the outside may look like it was ready for a combat zone but inside large leather seats, air conditioning and a smiling Air Force steward awaited. It was only a thirty minute flight but the pilots ferrying the guests to the island as soon as they arrived at the airport made sure to keep low giving stunning views of the Morheim coastland and the strip of ocean leading to the largely untouched island. As the aircraft touched down on the back lawn Julia waited, a trademark black pin stripe suit, white shirt and plain Morheim blue tie as usual. Once the blades stopped spinning the Air Force steward opened the door and flicked the steps down before saluting his monarch. The Queen returned the salute with a nod before making her way to greet the first arrival. "It's a pleasure to welcome you to the Laren Environmental Conference" She said with a hand outstretched.
  21. BYE BYE PLASTIC BY 2025 Plastic shopping bags are soon to be a thing of the past as it was announced today that Queen Julia The Younger has approved a series of environmental targets for the nation. The targets where put forward by the People's Congress. The targets aim to make Morheim a more environmentally aware nation and cut down pollution of all kinds. It is hoped that no unrecycleable plastic waste is used at all within Morheim by the year 2025 and many leading supermarkets have already announced steps to try and cut down their own waste. One will no longer sell potatoes in plastic bags instead committing to switch to recycleable paper bags by the end of 2019. The move prompted several other outlets to announce measures including some banning plastic bags at checkouts. One spokesman for a leading store said, "We see millions of bags used each year and if you're like me you've a plastic bag full of plastic bags. For the first week of January we will be giving all customers canvas bags as a gift from us. It is hoped they will then bring these with them each time they come and thus not rely on the plastic bags that end up in landfill." The measures were applauded by the 20 year old Queen who said, "The People's Congress have drawn up a comprehensive plan of how to cut down waste in our nation and set some ambitious goals. I'm delighted to have been able to approve them and I aim to go even further. Our planet has a finite amount of resources and as such we need to ensure we look after them and can maintain our way of life. It is my intention therefore to try and get as many nations as possible to also set targets, if not the same as ours at least as ambitious and meaningful." It was confirmed that in the coming days the Queen would invite nations from across the globe to come and discuss ways of protecting the environment and oceans. Among other key targets are to remove diesel vehicles, cut food waste and create new woodlands. AIR FORCE TO GET NEW TRAINER AND LIGHT STRIKE HYBRID With the nations aging trainer fleet reaching 40 years of age this year the Air Force are soon to take delivery of a new aircraft to fulfil both the training role as well as being able to be used as a light ground attack aircraft. The AX-11 is expected to be delivered at the end of February and around 80 are thought to have been ordered. The aircraft features a unique pusher design and is capable of carrying a significant amount of fire power. The aircraft will be built by Terrafe Aviation who traditionally have been more adept at building UAV's. The two seater aircraft is also being made available for export in the coming months.

  23. ZENITH DATA SYSTEMS EXPERIMENT "PARTLY SUCCESSFUL" Following a recent military exercise which saw soldiers using bio-elecrical implants for the first time the Ministry of Defence have called it "partly successful". The exercise saw 30 members of the Royal Lancers volunteer to have a device implanted just beneath the skin which connected with satellite navigation systems and illuminated to help point the direction of travel needed. One of the volunteers was Sergeant Calhana a 15 year veteran of the Lancers. "The implants took some getting used to, for the first two or three days it feels like something burrowing under your skin and that freaks you out, the skin feels tight but soon it feels natural. When you connect it to your units sat nav you see it light up blue and then as you move towards your objective or along the pre-determined route it flashes red in the direction of travel. Its very useful." According to the Sergeant however there are some downsides too, "After a while it became quiet warm, like holding your arm on a radiator, we found the best way to get over the discomfort was to pour water over it but obviously on live operations that could be in short supply. The light was also a lot brighter than I thought it would be and could illuminate yourself rather conveniently for the enemy." During the exercise the units with the new devices found themselves reaching objectives quicker than their no equipped counter-parts something Calhana put down to not having to take map stops. "When you navigate through what could be enemy territory you move to a waypoint, check the map again, then move off, stop again to check for movement, have another look at the map, then go again. We simply programmed the route to start off with and just had to worry about checking for the enemy ahead." The CEO of Zenith Data Systems, the company pioneering the technology said, "This was our first test and the feedback is invaluable, we've removed the sensors from the voulenteers and we're looking at including ways to dim the lights so its only just visible. We're also going to see what we can do about the heating issue, that's something we didn't consider." The Ministry of Defence declared themselves pleased with the results and have approved further tests and have asked ZDS to look at further "Biological Upgrades", something ZDS explained could include cochlea radio receivers, HUD contact lenses and even RHIF chips to control equipment remotely.
  24. ZENITH DATA SYSTEMS GIVEN GREEN LIGHT FOR MILITARY EXPERIMENT Morheim based Biotechnology company Zenith Data Systems has been given approval to test a sub-dermal implant for use in the military. The device which has yet to be given an official name is currently being called Project 0001 and is what the company have described as "an internal sat nav". The system will be implanted in a group of soldiers from the Queen's Royal Lances who have voulentered. The group will take part in an annual Morheim military exercise alongside members of their unit who have not been implanted with the devices, following completion of the week long exercise the performance of the two groups of soldiers will take place. One of the Lancers being implanted is Sergeant Alina a ten year veteran of the Light Armour Unit. "The device feels strange and a little bulky at first but after a while you don't notice it until its working. Then you see lights through the back of your hand which is a little freaky." Project 0001 essentially connects the soldiers navigation system to the implant and lights up in order to keep them on the route assigned to them meaning the days of needing to read a map while moving is over. Sgt Alina explained, "When your bouncing around in the bowels of a light tank reading maps can be a little tricky and the implant will mean you literally just glance at your hand, the fact it buzzes too when you need to change direction also helps. I've yet to try it out at work but I did use it for getting around Thale by connecting it to my mobile phone and it worked a treat." If the exercise goes as well as ZDS believe it will then they say they hope the military will place a large order. Their CEO Peter Simiod explained, "I think what we call Biohacking could be the future for human evolution and we have a whole host of devices we think could be useful for the military lined up on our drawing board. We're a new company and landing a major project like this would set us up to expand rapidly. We'll have our fingers crossed that all goes to plan." The implants were inserted by an Army Nurse under local anaesthetic and took thirty minutes for the procedure, it is expected the devices, which can be charged using Inductive Charging methods will be removed once the experiment is over and that this process will take only thirty minutes. Peter Simiod explained, "I had a very basic version of Project 0001 for three months and had no issues before having it removed as we'd developed well beyond it in that short time. I think those with them will find no issues as I didn't and the new implants are smaller, lighter and more comfortable."
