Grand Diùcachd Neart Agus Sìth

Welcome to the Grand Diùcachd Neart Agus Sìth, where Domination Through Any Means is our mantra. I come before you this day to make you aware of the wonderful opportunities available within my lands. The Diùcachd is run by Diùc Daibhidh Anaman.
We are sworn to Xeilias, which we require all Gentry-level subjects and above (Counts/Countesses and Barons/Baronesses) to join should they wish to be a part of our Diùcachd.


What is Grand Diùcachd Neart Agus Sìth?

Grand Diùcachd Neart Agus Sìth is a Diùcachd primarily focused on our military. That is not the only thing we focus on though. We also value education, for without education, no one can be at their best. We hope to attract researchers, crafters, merchants, one and all to help our Diùcachd prosper and grow.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for loyal subjects that wish to live the life they want in prosperity, and with the benevolent protection of a fierce lord. I will protect the people that live and work in my lands with the ferocity of a sheepdog protecting his flock. No matter if you want to PvP, craft, research, etc. Whatever you wish to do, we want to be the Diùcachd that you want to live in. Some may have heard that Xeilias is not a nice group. I daresay they don’t know what they are talking about. We enjoy having fun. We don’t want to pick on anyone, and we will zealously defend our lands and citizens so that they may prosper.

Where are we?

Everyone is welcome to join us on our Duchy Discord.

Q & A's

We do a Q & A session every Friday at 2000 EST in our Discord. Below, I will post the more interesting Questions and Answers for everyone's perusal. Please feel free to join us!


QUESTION:

Though I wouldn't mind knowing your opinion on things like public education, mandated military service, and using the military in times of peace as a force for building infrastructure, like Rome did with the roads and aqueducts.

ANSWER:

Public Education is good, I might use taxes to supplement it for the academies. Mandated military service, is 6 months at age 16 for training, then conscription in times of war.

QUESTION:

Specifics on classes or focus areas/skills?

ANSWER:

General reading, riting, rithmatic for a few years, then a student can choose a subject to focus on.

QUESTION:

Both limited to just citizens? Who are the teachers and how will they be vetted? Will you accept non-citizens into military service, either as combat or support roles?

ANSWER:

I would prefer to hire construction companies for infrastructure, but that will be left up to The Builder. Mandatory service for citizens only, non-citizens can join military, but cannot attain higher ranks until they become citizens. I haven't thought about vetting yet.

QUESTION:

Something like a cap at officer rank, then? Why distinguish between public education and the mandatory military service, if running off such a young age? As opposed to folding them together, military style schooling till 16.5yrs, the last 6months of which is active duty, or something?

ANSWER:

As citizens, the students families are paying taxes, so they can go to school.

QUESTION:

Alright. And, then they'll have some sway then, over specializing classes towards specific interests? Like herbology, or metal working, or such? As a service they are in effect paying for

ANSWER:

Yeah, I will work with academies, so they can help steer the kids to proper vocations like counselors. You don't want a kid that is lousy at math becoming an infrastructure engineer

QUESTION:

Alright. Are you looking to keep the academies insular and in house, or will you be working in conjunction with inter-kingdom research specialist, like for example Fennex academy, for training and specialists for the schooling?

ANSWER:

I might be working with academies like Fennec

QUESTIONS:

Would a working internship with some kind of specialist skill, like a Fennec doctor wanting a promising apprentice for his traveling practice, allow for deferring the military service, either to a later (more highly skilled) date, or as a financial buyout? Would either such effect citizenship status? (not meaning to pick on Fennec, they're just the name that comes to mind atm)

ANSWER:

yes, doctors are just as necessary as soldiers they could go either way, but a financial buyout will be stiff

QUESTION:

Okay. What defines citizenship in the duchy? What are the advantages, obligations, and expectations that come with citizenship? How can it be acquired, or lost?

ANSWER: A citizen will be a person that joins Xeilias, resides in our duchy, and swears fealty to me and Xeilias.

House Aurum would like to join our Diùc in welcoming and inviting any prospective citizens.

Included below is a short description of the Town (and eventually City) I plan to oversee within the Diùcachd, as well as an inside look at the available and open positions:

Summary:

  • The City of Aurum (name pending) is an industry-based and quick-to-grow Town situated within the Grand Diùcachd Neart Agus Sìth. For information on the laws and expected societal norms, please reference any releases by Duke Anaman, our liege lord. While we do not personally discriminate based on personal loyalties, we do not model ourselves as a haven for criminals, traitors, or heretics.

Goals:

  • Our main goal is secured productivity. By this, we mean that we want to continually output a quality-assured entity by way of any of our several trade districts and have that part not only meet and exceed standards, but have also been used in the continuing instruction of an apprentice- or journeyman-level student beneath the mastercraftsman that put the hours in to make it. Parts made by the students themselves will later be melted down and fed back through the district’s resource piles.

  • Our secondary goal is increased sovereignty and self-reliant physical security. The issue of our sovereignty is a balance between loyalty to the County that we were assigned within and, ultimately, the Grand Diùcachd we are pledged to as well as our independence as a separate City. Should our holdings grow to the point that we would wish to act as our own County within the Grand Diùcachd, we would petition the Count above us. Our intent would only ever be to reduce the effort and workload of our Count by allowing us to manage ourselves; we would never take our independence by force. Should we still be wanted as part of the larger County, we would happily stay and continue contributing to the cause.

Along these goals, we seek to have our own Guard as well as our own Military so as to not burden anyone with the larger portion of our defense. That being said, we still graciously accept the standard protections given to those our size by our betters within the hierarchy of the nobility. The Policemen’s Guard and Citizen’s Militia are under the command of their Captains, and these as well as any larger Military units answer directly to the Viceroy.


May your paths be swift and your pockets heavy.
