Current Events (December 2016)

Kaiser Dominus

Kaiser Dominus Tarjeisson has ascended the golden mango throne. Key imperial initiatives include conciliation with Alexandria following the devastations of Operation Tymarian Sun, reform of Cedrism and a good old fashioned Oustfest via Imperial Decree 834.

Elsewhere, legal arguments rage in the Judex over the Charter, and Ari reminds us of the interesting corner of Lichbrook known as Caverden. In international news, the Confederacy of Puritanian States in far west Benacia has joined Shireroth as an Imperial Dominion.

The Coat of Arms of the Landsraad

The Prætor is the presiding officer of the Landsraad and is elected by the aforesaid Federal Legislature. Zie presides over the Landsraad in all matters. The Prætorship of the Landsraad is one of the Great Offices of State of the Imperial Republic of Shireroth. Aside from the occasional Kaiseral election by the Landsraad, it is the only elected position in the Imperial Government.

The office of Prætor is almost as old as the Landsraad itself. Prior to the Prætor, the members of the Landsraad moderated themselves, but as the Landsraad grew in size and importance, it became apparent that some form of mediation was necessary. Erik Mortis created the name "Prætor". The letter ash (æ) ought to be used if possible as the proper spelling is not "Praetor" (though it is generally accepted). Nicholas Raglan, a Yardistani, is known as first 'speaker' (an ancient, but nowadays obsolete, term to refer to the Prætor).

The Prætor has a wide variety of duties, functions and powers which are derived from tradition and custom, the Charter, the Procedures of the Landsraad, and several other legal documents.
