Crown Princess Apologizes To Kingdom


Crown Princess Adriana has disavowed remarks regarding Jenka-Jenkinson, a historically touchy issue in Rokkenjiman-Dartfordian relations.

Crown Princess Adriana has issued a formal apology to the People of Dartfordia for "my na´ve and unwarranted insertion into Jenka-Jenkinson. It was inappropriate for me to say anything on the matter, and I respect the decisions of the Royal and Local Governments thus far. I apologize for any difficulties which have taken place due to my comments and hereby retract them. I must remember that I am not only a Princess of Rokkenjima but also of Dartfordia, and I did not keep the interests of our Kingdom in mind with my words. I hope that you all will allow me the opportunity to prove to you that, though a daughter of Rokkenjima, I am also a daughter of Dartfordia and I will not exercise such poor judgement in the future."

The remarks come after the Crown Princess visited her family in Dartfordia which was expanded to include an "educational and informative" session with Prime Minister Daniel Cleaver. "The Prime Minister was kind enough to take some time out of his day to speak with me," Crown Princess Adriana shared with the RBC, "going all the way back to the formative days of Jenka-Jenkinson, to the departure of Dartfordia from the CSU to, finally, present day events. He explained them not chiding me, but in a way I could tell he wanted me to understand and a way which would be best for all involved. I appreciate the time he took with me and will not repeat mistakes I've made, Dartfordia deserves more from me and I won't let them down anymore. After we could see things from the same page I even got to show the Prime Minister one of the best Rokkenjiman restaraunts in Hematite, even cluing him in on the 'secret' menu where they hide the best treats."

Before departing Dartfordia to resume her studies in the Kingdom of Tytor the Crown Princess spent two hours volunteering at a Hematite SPCA. "I want to spread goodwill each time I visit, no matter where it is or who it's directed towards. One of the greatest ways we can reduce unwanted animals, when considering a new pet, is adoption from a shelter. I made many friends on my visit to the SPCA, especially a certain black kitten who will be returning with me to the First Empire, and I encourage those who are looking for a companion to take an hour out of their day and acquaint themselves with the many beautiful hearts housed here." Pyrena Castle declined to comment for this story.

ORDER OF CONNLA TO "GO BENE GESSERIT"


Prince William, the eldest son of King Henry of Papcastle, has today spoken of the Order of Connla copying approaches taken by the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood in taking a deep interest in education. The Prince is a member of the prestigious Order of Connla which is tasked with ensuring the future of the Lorchist faith. The Prince announced that the Order is to invest some $30million to establish a series of schools outside of Eskdale. The 35 year old Prince is a former officer in the Military Police and joined the Order after being invited in 2017. He has been one of the more public faces of the Order which is still in many ways rather reclusive. The Prince spoke from Papcastle's capital, Whaw and said, "The Lorchist faith is in good health in the United Kingdoms. We have done well to ensure it resists challenges from other faiths but it must spread and thrive beyond its natural homeland. We have witnessed the approach taken by the Bene Gesserit and they have done an incredible job in protecting and promoting their faith and I believe that it stems from their attitude towards education. A wise man once said knowledge is power and that is truly the case. We have agreed today in principle to establish a pair of schools in different locations across Mundus and while we will teach a broad range of knowledge the philosophy and values of the school shall be shaped by our faith. Now we shall work to find a good location."

The Order have already got three schools in Eskdale, one in each Kingdom, while also helping fund a theological college. The leader or the Lorchist faith,  Deacon William Oakdale, said he was pleased the Order was taking these steps. "The entire Lorchist faith should help spread the word of the Almighty. In that mission the Order of Connla are just the vanguard. This is an interesting idea and I fully support them, as I will always. I will be working carefully with the Order, in particular Prince William, to ensure that any such expansion is as successful as it can be."

King Henry was pleased that David would at least give climbing a go and was sure his daughter Princess Mary would be excited by the prospect. "We're a Kingdom blessed with the peaks and so I think we're a people that love the mountains, some like me just like wandering in them and finding a cosy little pub for a beer and nice stew at the end of a hike, meanwhile people like my daughter are crossed with mountain goats I think." By now they had reached the door of the Council building.

King Robert was pleased he'd just bagged an invite to Chamwick. "Well I'd be thrilled to come and have a look. I think projects like Chamwick are something we need to push on with and I believe you've had some good results."

Once inside the Council chamber various people mingled with the Morelander delegation while Keynes followed David to one side, "Your Majesty our nation is one were we are largely devoted to the Lorchist faith, but we do not deny others their faith. We've about a million Cultists in our nation, your final day we've arranged for you to attend prayers here in the capital at a Temple of Helus, not as grand as your Northfort one but I am sure you'll like it. Naturally if you wish to carry out your ceremony you are more than welcome to. If you require anything please let me know. You may even have a few Cultists within the chamber." He motioned back the way they had come and permitted David some time for his ceremony seeing at least one of the handful of Cultists who worked within the building he motioned for that man to move closer to the King, no doubt that man, Thomas Birkdale, would know what was about to happening and could help if required and no doubt would be happy to be so close to the ceremony. Keynes watched on having never truly witnessed any of the Cults rituals except for the odd event on their feast days. Keynes waited patiently for the matter to be concluded before he could return to the matters of the day.

"This evening we'll be dining in the Grand Council's chamber so perhaps you'd not want to fill up too much." Keynes reminded the King. "For now once we've finished the drinks we'll make our way through each of the quarters. Is there anything you'd like to see in particular first?" Teynes asked David and Stasya.

Biography:
     Erel II brought about an age of prosperity unmatched in the Hailun-led Empire of Arashkai, waging a decisive war against the tribes in the east which would, for the century that followed, allow for the Empire to focus on its internal development rather than focus on external threats. However, he would lose his firstborn son, Arkan, in an accident while the latter was visiting a monastery in the Feltasi mountains. As such, his grandson, Imras, would take the throne upon his death.

Karlis senior thought for a moment or two but it was his youngest son, Prince Motiejus, who began the response. "I have a suggestion. You are a nation with various religious orders and we have our Spearman of the Dievasian Order, a cermonial but religious order." The Prince was a member and the group were limited to just 60 living members. It carried out various ceremonial duties and was a key part of the faith of the nation. "I would like to propose perhaps a joint spiritual area. We could perhaps have a kind of garden, I know your faith places a great emphasis on nature. We could have several buildings for education and recreation, and two residential units allowing our faiths to have visits there and conduct exchanges. What do you think?"
