County wide decisions will be made by vote of the County Council members. (Barons & Mayors)

While we'll be using a feudal military style government, we value each and every member of our County, and as such, every citizen of Loc’Mir will have a say in how we govern, however, we will still adhere to the Chain of Command (CoC).

  • Gentry / Soldiers report to the Mayor's & Barons
  • Barons report to the Duke (via the Margrave of Loc’Mir)
  • Mayor’s report to the Count

In times of War, the Count may implement Martial Law, which would suspend the voting process in order to rally troops more effectively. This does not, however, mean that we will discard suggestions during a wartime setting. Below is the Current Hierarchy of Loc’Mir. (Post will be updated once more County Council Members have been selected)

Nobility

  • Kolvan Isendale: Grand Count of Loc’Mir
  • Erysa Isendale: Countess of Loc’Mir
  • Kadian Karstein: Margrave of Loc’Mir, Lord Commander of County Military Forces

County Council

  • Master of Coin: Constantine Belthazar - Responsible for the County Treasury and Recreation within Loc’Mir.

  • High Priest - Sanctaphandri Academy: Renalt Isendal - The head instructor and leader of the Academy. Deciding on prerequisites for advancement, areas of study, and other duties assigned by Count Kolvan Isendale.

  • Minister of Defense: Kadian Karstien - The Highest ranking Military position in the County. Responsible for Military Operations, Rallying of Forces, and military welfare.

  • Captain of the County Guard: Rysdan Zabel - Responsible for keeping Loc’Mir safe by training and recruiting Guardsmen, assigning patrols and Guard Duty. This position also holds the Rank of Baron and is responsible for the County Penitentiary.

  • County Magistrate: Position Open - Responsible for Law and Order within Loc’Mir. Can appoint other Magistrates, with the approval of the County Council. Only the Count can overrule the County Magistrates verdict.

  • Master/Mistress of Trade: Position Open- Responsible for securing trade agreements with other Cities throughout the Kingdom.

  • Master/Mistress of Agriculture: Position Open- Responsible for keeping Loc’Mir fed through Farming and Produce.

  • Master/Mistress of Production: Position Open- Responsible for the County wide production (income) for Loc’Mir.

The Count of Loc’Mir, will be present in all County Council Meetings, however, will not cast a vote on issue presented to the Council, unless used as a Tie-breaker vote.

(We do reserve the right to create additional Council Seats as the need arises.)

THE AVIS PACT

The Avis Pact is a group of Counties, that will ensure the survivability of those involved. This is prioritized as follows:

  • Needs that members may be lacking to ensure survival. (Food, trade, etc.)
  • Financial needs that may arise in times of hardship.

The members of the Avis Pact recognize these needs of the fellow members as a priority ahead of their own growth or fiscal gain. The Avis Pact will also act as a political bloc for the military as, a majority of the founding members have been granted leading roles within the Sanctaphandri military.

This does not mean that members in the Avis Pact are expected to participate in a military capacity nor that the members are held as a higher priority in the case of military actions.

Current roster of the Avis Pact

Laws

  • Loc’Mir will follow the laws of Ashland, & Sanctaphandri, & The AVIS PACT Charter.
  • All accusation of breaking the law or violations of contracts will be decided with a fair trial to the accused. A Magistrate will be appointed to rule and pass judgements in these cases.
  • All accusations of breaking the law, regarding a higher penalty than imprisonment, will be brought before the County Magistrate and be given a fair trial.
  • All citizens have the freedom to play as they wish within the confines of the law. (Note: some pledges or contracts may restrict this.)
  • All citizens will be treated with respect and will not be discriminated against for real life situations or traits. (Please keep in mind this is a Role Play themed County, In Character (IC) confrontations are approved, however, Out of Character (OOC) drama will not be tolerated.)
  • All citizens have the right and will be provided with minimum amounts of food and water to ensure basic survival.

(In the case of an individual that has committed a crime and has been found guilty by the County Council or has been exiled from Loc’Mir, they will be provided the minimum amount of food and water to leave our lands to ensure survival)

Survival

  • We will address water by using water capture devices such as barrels, bowls, or anything else to capture and store water. Also, we will build wells and other water gathering devices.
  • Our settlements will aim to provide enough food for the survival of all citizens and travelers.
  • We will also grow enough produce to store foods in case of military conquest or large scale travel.
  • Grain and cheeses will be a major focus within our agriculture department.

Security

  • Roadways within the immediate vicinity of settlements will be patrolled.
  • Security within the settlements will be provided.
  • High profile individuals, merchants, and various other players will receive personal escorts around the vicinity of the Capital City of Vlans and within the city itself if they make prior arrangements.

What Loc’Mir offer its Citizens

So, now you know what the Loc’Mir has to offer, but we are part of a much larger community! I encourage you to check out the Sanctaphandri recruitment thread to see for yourself, but in short:

Whilst many strive and hope to achieve the above, many simply lack the resources, pro-activeness and support of experienced members.

Loc’Mir has an extensive network of resources and members within the County, Duchy and Kingdom, all exceptionally loyal to one another and working towards a common goal. We will provide an undying interest and excitement within CoE.

Loc’Mir is a community, a family if you will, and we look after our own! We can provide you the safety to achieve your goals and ambitions within a dangerous world. Extensive Role Play, PvP, or PvE. Whatever Town or City you are a part of, Loc’Mir aims to provide an everlasting experience. One of continual pursuit and accomplishment.

Finally, Loc’Mir provides its people a say in all matters of concern. It is ran by a Council of Equals, and we value every citizen's opinion.

“The Military is the beating heart of this county, some other counties may rely on the strength of their coin, their mines, or harvest. Loc’Mir relies on the strength of its sword and the resilience of its shield. The Military provides both of these things to you. To think you want to cut its budget, stick to your profession councilor and I will stick to mine.”

Kadian Karstein at a County Council meeting

Military Council

The Military Council, (or Baron’s Council), is a council made up of all the Counties Barons. It functions as an extension of the County Council and must adhere to all policies and procedures set forth by Count Isendale.

The Military Council is responsible for any and all military decisions made in the County of Loc’Mir. Decisions taken by the Military Council range from General Patrols during peace time, to Logistics & Organization during war time.

The Council will be responsible for all Offensive and Defensive actions within the County of Loc’Mir.

What the Military can offer you

As I am sure you can tell by now, Loc’Mir is a Militarized County. But any Military, large or small, is only as good as those that step up and enlist. The most important question and the one most often heard throughout our recruitment offices, is “What do I get out of enlisting?”

I could appeal to your sense of patriotism or coax you in with the thought of adventure, but the reality is, you will find these on your own, with or without any help from me. I can however tell you some of the benefits of joining an organized and disciplined force, such as the Loc’Mir Military.

We offer many things to the common citizen of our County, chief among these are Security and Protection. A Place for those less inclined to do battle to pursue honing their skills in the safety of towns and fields.

Alt text - can be left blank

  • Security (City Guardsmen): We want all members of Loc’Mir to enjoy every minute of Chronicles of Elyria. That being said, we understand that security only comes in the form of people patrolling the Cities & Towns, keeping the bandits and other deviants, from stealing peoples hard earned items.

Nothing in CoE will be free, therefore we will be offering a regular wage for each player that wishes to become a Guardsmen. This will provide players with a steady form of income to advance their own plans as well as opening up all forms of possible Roleplay and story opportunities.

Alt text - can be left blank

  • Protection (Formal Soldiers): There will be times when the City Guard will not be enough of a deterrent to keep large enemy forces at bay. That is why, we plan on having a standing Military force in Loc’Mir County.

Each Baron will be responsible for maintaining their own localized military force, weather in the form of Calvary, Infantry, or Ranged, these soldiers belong to the Baron and report to him. The Baron’s however report to The Margrave of Loc’Mir, (senior most Military person in the County).

The Margrave will pull troops from every Barony to form a division of soldiers that will be responsible for patrolling the landscape as well as assigning troops to the various outposts and stations within the County and along the borders. This will be known as a military deployment.

In the event Loc’Mir is invaded by a large bandit group or foreign forces with hostile intent, the Count will send out a notice rallying the Banners along with instructions on where to muster. The Count will assume overall Command of the entire Counties Military force, while the Margrave will serve as the Military General, with each Baron reporting directly to him.

A Soldiers pay will come from the Baron he/she is under. During Military Deployments, each Soldier will receive an added sum paid from the County coffers.

GOVERNED BY STORM LORD VOXXON ISENDALE

Tempest Keep: In the Days of old, Tempest Keep was ruled by the Storm Lords of Ravenloft, under the banner of the King of Loc’Mir. When the Kingdom of Loc’Mir fell, Tempest Keep remained, for a time. Bolstered by the might of The Order of the Wolf and The Knights of Tempest, Ravenloft held strong against all who tried claiming the Northern lands for their own. As The Grand County of Loc’Mir emerged from the ashes, Ravenloft County was no more, and yet, Tempest Keep remained. Hard men and women swore allegiance to the Dark Wolf of Vlans. Their Keep still stands against the Cold of Night, and their hearts still yearn for battle. They are people of the Tempest, they are the North.
