Initial reports indicate the presence of dangerous wildlife in the region which, combined with the nascent state of the colony makes the prospect for a far-flung expedition premature at best. The templars under Athanasius von Strauss are instead to garrison Einburg and patrol the immediate surrounds thereof, with priority on protecting workmen ranging beyond the rising fortifications of the town, and subdue any dangerous wildlife or abominations that are encountered. In this manner the immediate territory of the principality is to be secured and made safe for further development and the stage set for a future expedition to uncover the secrets of this new world.
~ equip Athanasius von Strauss with a blessed weapon.
~ equop Balthazar Altmann with a simple weapon
~ re-equip templar bereft of a blessed weapon with a simple weapon (trainee )
The destruction of Riylod is an act of providence for by an act of God the Immaculate has laid waste the rising infidel power and extinguished a threat to Holy Church and the Confederation. May this clear sign effect the conversion of souls and the repentance of the dwarves that forsaking their errors they might embrace the true religion. The question remains however should Einburg accept refugees from Riylod as an act of Immaculean charity?
After much consideration the Prince has with a heavy heart established a general prohibition (a limited exception aside) on refugees from Riylod settling in Einburg on a number of grounds, propounded in an edict nailed to the doors of the temple.
These reasons include.
1) The people of Riylod worship a demon, a false deity that has long led the race of dwarves astray. To permit resettlement of these infidels in Einburg would be to introduce this blasphemous doctrine into the principality which cannot be approved due to the danger it would pose to the good of souls.
2) Given that any dwarven settlers loyalty and affection would remain with Riylod rather than with the prince and the Holy Confederation, to allow them rights of settlement would be to introduce a potentially subversive element into the colonial population that may betray the principality to foreign powers, notably that colony of Riylod that persists in the new world.
3) Einburg is a human principality, to introduce a significant population from another race may induce racial strife the colony can ill afford.
His Highness has however noted that if a refugee sincerely desires to pledge loyalty to the principality, renounces all ties to Riylod or its erstwhile colony and professes the Immaculean faith and is confirmed solemnly and by oath as a member of the Immaculean church, then they may be considered for settlement on a case by case basis. Such a petition would be considered on the grounds of benefits such an individual may offer to the colony, the applicants sincerity and the desires of the existing citizenry of Einburg to whom the princes devotion and moral obligation is primarily due.
The prince also notes that he will not permit the Taleuten character of Einburg to be put at risk, and has decreed that no more than 5% of the colonial population ought to compose immigrants from beyond the bounds of the Holy Confederation, be they dwarven refugees, elves, members of any other race or indeed humans bearing alien customs from foreign lands.*
ooc*: No to dwarven refugees as a general rule but if the colony receives a specific petition for residency then it will be considered based on the criteria specified.
To: High Highness the Prince Maximillian von Auberg, Lord of Einburg, Prince of the Holy Confederation and Servant of the Immaculate.
From: Pro-Consul Marius Brutus of the Republic of Conria
The Republic of Conria appreciates the kind words of the Lord of Einburg. We thank you for giving us your regards to the death of the beloved Cassia Barkanus, our hero and wife of Aurelian Barkanus. We will agree to a trade agreement between us and hope that it will bring growth and properity to our two nations. Also there is no need to worry about the spiritual well beeing of our people, for while the lack of a temple is an inconvenience, the Holy Flame still burns in the heart of Conria and all its people and its bright light will guide us through these dark times.
Starfall Autonomous Sister Republic Orders:
225 Crowns for 100 Wood with the mainland (200 Crowns for 100 Wood, 25 shipping fee)
Construct 352 Simple Weapons (352 Metal)

Build 4 Fishing Docks (400 Wood, 100 Population)
Build 3 Farms (750 Wood, 75 Population)
Assign Linnye Silvertongue as a Magistrate and equip her with a Simple Weapon
Increase immigration rate to Loosened Borders
Harald Moönseeker (equipped with a simple weapon) will lead an expedition of 247 (equipped with 200 crude weapons and 47 simple weapons for those more experienced in combat) currently unemployed volunteers to explore the areas surrounding the colony. Harald Moönseeker is interested in finding anything magical he can research, but the civilians are more interested in finding something that would be more immediately useful.
The remaining unemployed civilians will remain at home (one will be equipped with a Simple Weapon, that's Yvette).
Governor-General Yvette Chevalier initially wanted to completely open the borders to all refugees wishing to flee the Old World, but this was vetoed by the Legislative Assembly. After negotiations, she agreed to a compromise where the city would increase its intake of civilians but not to the drastic degree that she initially proposed. An additional measure would be that immigration from the mainland would be curbed slightly when refugee output exceeded safe levels. This measure was tolerated by the United Republics back home as the Riyodian collapse is currently a major humanitarian crisis that is putting pressure on border Republics.
To alleviate concerns about food security, Yvette has prioritised the construction of farms and fisheries and has begun trading with the motherland and other colonies for resources. She defended her decision to assist the Kingdom of Eternia with the construction of a fort against the most radical portions of the city saying that "meeting the needs of our Republic and the large number of Rylodian refugees coming to the continent is far more important than moral grandstanding that will have minimal impact on the world".

The first wave of ships will arrive the new world by the time of the harvest season.

Let he who turneth away those in need be themselves rebuffed in their time of need.
It is our solemn and sworn duty to help those in need. These refugees will be in need, and so we must help them. Accept them under our protection, no questions asked. We pledge to, as soon as we can, provide them with a new homeland, a city where they may rule themselves under our protection.
Blessed be they who stand in evil’s way with naught to clad them but their faith and will.
Top up our Templars, please!
This land is our land, and this land is your land. You toil so that we may eat, and we bleed so you may toil

This will eventually become the Site of the Settlement for the Refugees.

Orders have been received and are now locked.
A few hair. Thats all that he was holding in his hands. A few hair. That was all that he had left of Cassia, all that this cruel fate had left him with. It has been weeks since the tragedy, months since they had marched out to purge the lands of the undead. And it had been weeks since the few survivors came back, battered, bruised and tramatized. A whole week the entire colony had come to a standstill. Everybody had lost somebody close to them, somebody who was now cursed to have their souls forever bound to their magically animated husk. A fate so much worse than death.
In death they would be united with their loved ones eventually, all together in the light of the Holy Flame. But for that to happen, their mortal form had to be burned, reduced to ash, so that the immortal soul would be free to join the Great Beyond in the Holy Flame. But now, that would never happen, even if Aurelian would to fall on his sword here and now, he would be dammed to never see here again, since she was now one of the cursed undead.
He looked back, tears in his eyes. Their daughters, their twins, both barely three years old, were watching him. A maid was holding their tiny hands, while Aurelian was proceeding with the ceremony. How much he wished that he was holding their tiny hands, instead of the last tiny bit of his wife that he still had. He didn't listen to the speech of the priest or the words of others, as they burned the hair of the loved ones they loved. It was tradition for soldiers to always keep a lock of ahir at home, so that if their body was lost and could not be creamted, their family could burn at least a tiny part of them, to hopefully release their soul.
Oh, how he hoped that it would work here, too. How he hoped that it would reduce the undead to nothing but a husk that has his belovedes appearence, instead of a rotting prison that kept her soul bound to this realm for eternity. Yet, his hands trembled when it was his turn to step to the cauldron, in which the bright fire of the Holy Flame roared. These hair were all that remained of her, all he had. He didn't want her to go, there was still a lifetime ahead that he would have wanted to spend with her. To love her, to live with her, to laugh with her and to be with her. All of this had fate taken away and now he would loose the last fragment of her that remained.
Mechanically, his arm rose up and opened, releasing the hair into the fire. The flame didn't notice, the lock disappeared within a short, tiny flame, that died the moment it started.
"Goodbye Cassia. Don't be too bored while you wait for me" he couldn't bring himself to say something heavy or serious, their relationship had never been like this. A teary chuckle escaped him, as he remembered all the times she beat his stupid head in for dumb things. But it would never happen again.
Back than when his amster had died, the man who had believed in both him and Cassia, he had thought that he could never fell anything more painful than that. Back than he and Cassia had had each other to rely on, but now, he was alone.
But that wasn't right, they were still here. Diane and Palatina, his daughters were still there and they looked at him bewildered, as he slowly stepped towards them. He went down on his knees and with one fluid motion took them both into the closest bear hug he could muster. He would go on, for them. And he would make sure that Cassias soul would be freed. No matter how high the cost, he would purge the so called "Deadlands".
