    Kingstone Entry Examinations

    I wish to apply to be a Vassal of Kingstone IGN: 20JPorter RP Name: Jay Porter XX Character Profile: http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3402-character-profile-king-jay-porter-xx/ Character Description: Jay is a rich man who only desires to become richer and to fix whatever mistakes his father made that led to Valland being quartered and ultimately Royalty losing its meaning. Jay, however, will have trouble trusting anyone after his entire group of advisors, including his long-time best friend, left him. Empty and alone, Jay wants to find some purpose in the world and make life greater for whoever he can. Jay does not care about his outward appearance or how others interpret it (His clothes don't work, he goes barefoot, etc.) and is beginning to isolate himself. He would need a psychologist if they existed. Build: Valland: Nearly anyone who has traveled by sea has at the very least dreamed of going to Valland. It is a city in itself, although now half empty, that has a wide variety of grand buildings and art. The Town Hall and Tavern are the largest and most important completed builds, with the Porter House in construction. Valland is planned to grow and economically support Kingstone. (Above is the ex-Noble Hosue design [Now Called the Porter House], now partially complete in Valland) Lore: http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3403-the-ecotorah-vallands-holy-text/ http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3594-valland-a-deer-friend/ http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3637-valland-the-halvening/ http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3640-valland-the-coronation/ http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3657-valland-costly-profit/ http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3699-kingstone-and-valland-the-intruder/ http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3712-valland-a-perspective-of-the-jailbreak/ http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3734-valland-unrighteous-treason/ http://everneth.com/forums/topic/3738-valland-flakes-away/ A Letter to King Icarus Forde of Kingstone From Jay Porter XX of Valland Great King, the people of Valland are at constant risk of rebellion. With no leader that they trust, they may soon feel abused and unrepresented. With half of the people of Valland already gone, you are at risk of losing more potentially loyal citizens. Therefore I urge you to put a man of Valland in command of Valland, while still under your command; give Valland a vassal they trust. Therefore, I humbly present the logical solution to our dilemma. I ask that you consider vassalising me in order to keep Valland in obedience. While many, or if I were to be honest, half of the people of Valland did not trust me, the ones who stayed did. Therefore, the best solution to keep public tranquility is to give them the leader they know and trust. Again, I must point out that the people of Valland are capable of rebellion and damage; my own home is mostly destroyed because of this. I am also obligated to point out other qualities of myself in order to prove my worthiness of vassalship. First, and most obvious, I am a man with experience in power, albeit a few years cut short by distrust in the actions of my father. My experience in domestic, foreign, and economic aspects of government is unmatched, and I also possess experience in war. Second, I am a man who is loyal. In no circumstance have I abandoned a friend for power or profit, abandoned my values for a quick coin, nor made any action with intent, direct or not, to damage Valland. Third, I have immense experience in architecture and civil engineering, having to rebuild Valland after the Halvening. May I also remind you of my apparent connection to Loden, which may lead to a solution to what my father created. It would be profitable for all of us- You, I, the Kingsglaive, Kingstone, Valland- to make me a vassal to keep order in Valland and make Valland contribute to the glory or Kingstone. By using my skills and lineage, we will also bring vengeance on those who died at the hands of Loden. Jay Porter XX of Valland

    Valland Flakes Away

    Valland is no longer a faction. Its land is now owned by Kingstone. Valland may no longer exist, but the dream of profit and the Word of Glod will never die. I, King Jay Porter XX of Valland, abdicate the throne and now am an ordinary citizen.

    Valland: Unrighteous Treason

    “Wait, so not only did we fail in even causing damage to a single building, they took the fort, too?” Jay said, tapping his finger on the table. “Yes, sir.” one of the generals said. Jay’s finger tapped faster until he slammed his fist on the table and stood up. “What the Sadin went wrong?” Jay yelled. “They were too powerful.” “I fail to believe we could lose so easily merely due to the, what is it you said, power of an enemy. We outnumbered them, but someone down there failed to use proper strategy, even losing a well-defended fort to a smaller force! I need every officer under your command to retake their strategy tests immediately. Tell our men to avoid conflict while moving back to twenty miles from the City of Valland. Dismissed, but feel free to stay and look at this map.” Jay walked out. Jay was in his library, reading through the book Kordon had open when he attacked Jay. Suddenly, he heard a loud voice coming through the open balcony and through the house. Jay put a mark in the book, put it in a pack, and walked out to the balcony. A group of people gathered around the town square. Jay rushed down. “Do you not see that your King is abusing you? Using your lives for his profit? Follow me to Hero's Village, where none are oppressed!” Jay walked through the crowd. “Who are you, exactly?” Jay asked. “The bringer of peace, the savior of the oppressed.” “I urge you to stop speaking for a moment so I may give my case. What have I done to oppress you?” “Forced men to die for your selfish causes.” “I have done none of that! War is profitable for the warrior but not the King. Every attack I have made was to defend us from an angry enemy!” “You gave those men no choice. At Hero’s Village, we give choice.” “They have choice! They volunteered for the army and militia in order to profit and protect! I have in no way had any intention of harming any citizen of Valland!” “You are an oppressive King.” “What have I done to oppress anyone? Rebuild from ashes? Provide well-paying jobs? Quite simply every act I have made was for the benefit of the people or for my profit without harming anyone.” “Look, look at their hunger! They eat little while you sit under a crown bigger than their houses!” “They hunger not, they are paid and fed!” “All you care about is power, yourself.” “Have I not been where they are? I have wandered the wilderness barefoot to profit as they do, I am not an average king!” “That is correct; you are below average.” Jay put this hand on his halberd. Jay shook, then stopped and sighed. “I have made my case. Now leave.” “As long as I may take my followers with me.” “No. Leave, now.” A couple of guards drew their weapons. Admiral Momo stepped in the way. “Aye, we don’t want another war, do we?” Momo said. “If they make o- no. We do not. Could everyone who wishes to leave go to my right, and everyone who wishes to stay to my left.” The crowd split in half, but in the center were some deciding. Reaneal went to the left, but Momo and Noah went to the right. In the center was a few citizens, Keshi, and Beo stayed in the center. Jay gulped. “Momo, Noah, are you sure you wish to break from Valland?” “Yes.” “Keshi, Beo, please, I can’t have you leave.” “I’m sorry.” Beo went to the right. Keshi began to cry. “Keshi, I need you, remember all those years? Our childhoods?” “But… bu-but Kordon! You are why this happened!” Keshi moved to the right. “Fine. Fine. Go, leave, but be aware, the second you leave the territory of Valland all of you will be denied the right to enter Valland unless you agree to go through three years of prision.” “So be it.” The unknown man said. They walked off as the sun set on Valland. Jay sat on the throne staring at the floor. A man walked in. “Let me guess,” Jay said, “Half of Valland left.” “Exactly, my King.” He said. “Matthew, what have I done wrong?” “Been a king. Without you, they would be in worse condition.” “But with me now, they feel worse.” “But they doom themselves.” “I need someone I can trust to be in charge while I’m gone.” “I’m sure I can find you a replacement, but where are you going?” “To Kingstone to arrange our surrender. If I am captured, I need you to avoid further conflict with Kingstone.” “Or whoever I find to put in charge.” “That person in charge is you, Matthew. You are the only person left who I can trust. I have everything packed.” “Are you sure about this, Jay?” “Of course.” Jay stood up and handed Matthew a book. “This is what I think happened that made Kordon so angry.” They hugged. “Profit well, for both you and Valland.” “And to you and your endeavors, Jay.” Jay walked out and towards the mountains.
  12. I shall nominate Kordon.
  13. A bell rung. More bells rung. Every bell in Valland rung. Jay sat up, and listened for a moment. Then he realized that the bells we not just an annoyance, but a serious alarm. He got up and ran to a lit candle. “Matthew,” Jay yelled, “Get me my spyglass! Now!” Jay ran to his balcony and a cold breeze made him shiver. He looked out over the city and saw a spot of light. The Prison Tower was lit. Matthew ran up behind him and handed Jay the telescope. “Thank you, could you retrieve my Halberd?” Jay looked through the telescope. “My Glod. There’s five dead men at the gates. How did this happen? Enough men to kill them would be quickly spotted!” Jay felt the handle of crystalized bluesteel. Jay put down the telescope and put on his gloves. He looked back through the spyglass. An explosion of flame set three men burning, one in two pieces. A giant hammer floated out of the prison. And Kordon. Suddenly, they began to run towards the West. “It’s the treasury!” “Shall I send for more troops?” “No! These are not normal men, these are- I believe Kordon called them- the Kingsglaive, of which he is a member. Icarus is among them, their King, this cannot be forgiven!” The ‘glaive entered the mines. Jay stood there for a minute, wondering how many were being sent to have Glod evaluate their profits. Jay felt a vibration in his hand. The Halberd began to glow a light blue. “We lost. Let them leave so nobody else dies. Today will be held in infamy.”
  14. It is my solemn duty to report to Valland and its citizens that we have been attacked by Kingstone. In the midst of night, they successfully attempted to rescue Kordon, leaving 36 dead and none with injuries. I must request that the Militia assemble and the Army and Navy prepare for war. As for Kingstone, the next is obvious. Kingstone has illegally made an incursion into Valland, killed 36 men with no mercy whatsoever, all for a single man and a sword. It is the logical and obvious course of action to name this incident an act of war. Therefore, we of Valland, in order to bring profits and justice to Glod and ourselves, formally declare war against Kingstone and its vassals. We will consistently strive for peace, for peace is good for profits. We will not welcome any ambassadors due to the fact that the last one attempted murder. As the Rules of Acquisition state, war is good for profits. Signed, King Jay Porter XX of Valland
