Quick Glance
Life in Oleon centers around traditional values. Oleanders are generally pious people, loyal to their Monarch, and take pride in their vast cultural heritage. Owning land defines one’s standing in the social hierarchy, and the rural nobility - which you can be a part of - has ever since been regarded Oleon's elite.
Following her claim for superiority, Oleon today has the largest warships, fields a powerful army, and has already established a moderate colonial presence, which she is eager to expand.
Oleon accepts new members, especially craftsmen, artists, agriculturalists, seamen, and entrepreneurs of all kinds, as long as they are loyal to the Monarch.

A DETAILED LOOK at the EMPIRE OF OLEON

 

Leadership

 

King Philip I and Queen Beatrice (NPC)

26322769042_2f9aa7640c_z.jpg

Spoiler

Full Name and Title: Philip I, Roi d’Oleon et Guelph, Grand’Croix de l’Ordre Royal et Militaire de l’Étoile d’Ardros, Grand’Croix de l’Ordre Royal de Saint-Arltrees

The Royal Great Coat-of-Arms:

31444489511_550ca66701_o.png

 

After the sudden passing of his elder brother - the late King Stéphan II - Philip was crowned in April 616.
Whereas the late Monarch was a great admirer of the occult, driven by all things mythical, which allowed the Order of the Faith to spread its influence into almost every niche of Oleander society, Philip follows in the footsteps of his father Stéphan I. Noble and almost idealistic, with a broad education, and – growing up in the Royal Palaces of Granoleon – naturally provided with a passion for the arts, he now has to prove that he can prevail on the political stage as the absolute Monarch that he will need to be. With his beloved wife Queen Beatrice by his side he rules over the empire in a crucial time. He tasks himself with nothing less than challenging the mighty Order of the Faith, and reducing the influence of its destructive elements, especially that of the Clerics of Hades, to rebuild Oleon's reputation as the predominating cultural beacon it once was adored for.

 

Lord Chancellor Calida (NPC)

26322768332_cf96c3c081_z.jpg

Spoiler

Full Name and Title: Lucier Henri Calida, Duc de Courtia et Pair d’Oleon, Chancelier d’Oleon, Grand’Croix de l’Ordre Royal et Militaire de l’Étoile d’Ardros, Grand’Croix de l’Ordre Royal de Saint-Arltrees, Amiral

Coat-of-Arms:

30718671354_6e5cd12665_o.png

Lucier Henri Calida was born into the House of Courtia - already one of the most influential Oleander noble families - and he soon saw the potential the Faith offered him for his political ambitions. He rose to power as a clergyman, but his organizational talents were soon discovered by the Royal Court. He was appointed Adviser to the King, and excelled in various tasks, foremost the introduction of a naval focus to Oleon, and the consequent buildup of La Royale prior to the Juniper War.
Today he is not only Chancelier d'Oleon – the highest administrative position in Oleon – he is also Supreme High Priest of the Clerics of Zeus, making him de facto leader of the Order of the Faith, which has blossomed under his regime. Under King Stéphan II he controlled the High Council and was First Adviser to the King, answering only to him. And as the King shared his beliefs, his authority was unchallenged. Some even say Stéphan II was a mere puppet, and that Calida was Oleon's true regent.
Now, with Philip I as King, his universal authority might be challenged for the first time. Nobody can tell how Calida is likely to react to this, since his agenda remains unclear to everyone. He is feared by many, and often described as a devious schemer who will do anything to tighten the Order's grasp on Oleon. Others see in him a savior and believe him to be the only guarantor for upholding the Empire's domestic order.
One thing is for sure, though, he is more likely to prepare for a war with Corrington than to read mass in a temple.

 

Structure of State

Oleon is an absolute Monarchy. The King has always been the central authority, ruling over the land with a wise and strong hand since the days of King Arltrees.
Oleon is the King – and the King is Oleon.

26381834371_ba0d2b48a7_o.png

 

26425772006_7b476964f6_o.png

Wise Monarchs govern for the well-being of their loyal subjects, taking paternal care of them. That is the natural order of all things under the sun. So there is no need for 'representation', for 'parliaments' even, or other unsacred institutions in Oleon.
But wise Monarchs also listen to advice. That is the reason why the High Council supports the King in his rule, and advises him with expertise in all matters of state. The various branches of Oleon's administration then answer to the High Council and his chairman, the Lord Chancellor of Oleon, who traditionally is the first and most important adviser to His Majesty.

 

Members of the High Council

 

Pierre Lavalette Genaro, Duc de Vele et Pair d’Oleon, Intendant Général des Finances, Grand’Croix de l’Ordre Royal de Saint-Arltrees

Coat-of-Arms:

31523139226_f690531e27_o.png

Pierre Lavalette Genaro is the current Duke of Vele - a booming coastal region East of Granoleon - and General Intendant of Finances at His Majesty’s Royal Court. Using his formidable fiscal talent and economic expertise, the Duke of Vele has consolidated the royal treasury, and reformed Oleon’s taxation system. By many, he is regarded as the Royal Court’s rising star. Some even go as far as saying Genaro’s influence on His Majesty has already surpassed that of Lord Chancellor Calida.

 

Berart Mazan, Duc de Boussac, Secrétaire d’État des Colonies, Grand Officier de l’Ordre Royal de Saint-Arltrees

31583619421_ee51e61cc6_z.jpg

Coat-of-Arms:

31523141786_06b62e219d_o.png

The Lion of Boussac is one of the most important advisors to His Majesty, and as Secretary of State of the Colonies responsible for Oleon’s fate beyond the line. Traditionalists grumble that the task of protecting the nation from her hereditary northern enemy and controlling Oleon’s overseas expansion shouldn’t go hand in hand. But the Lion of Boussac is an able man, and where better to keep Oleon’s foes at bay than in the waters of New Terra.

 

Guiscard Emery de Beauregard, Duc de Corban, Secrétaire d’État de la Marine, Commandeur de l’Ordre Royal et Militaire de l’Étoile d’Ardros, Commandeur de l’Ordre Royal de Saint-Arltrees, Grand-Amiral d’Oleon

Coat-of-Arms:

31523144086_f7b4fbd4bd_o.png

Growing up in chateau Sans-Nuage-sur-Maine - located in the hills just outside the harbor-city of Quilbignon - the young Lord almost naturally acquired a taste for saltwater, and soon was sent to pursue a career in His Majesty’s Royal Navy. Towards the end of the Forty-Nine Years War he was promoted to Grand Admiral of Oleon, and although unsuccessful in preventing Corrington from taking the Isle of Tam, he - under the direction of the Lord Chancellor - managed the rebuild of La Royale, which ultimately gained the upper hand over her Corrish counterpart in the following Juniper War. Today the Secretary’s attention shifts towards the eastern seas as the race for New Terra is speeding up. Oleon’s fate depends on La Royale - and on the salt in the Secretary’s veins.

 

Guérin Godefry de Tourment - nicknamed Le Doublonoi - Duc d’Eranos, Connétable d’Oleon, Grand’Croix de l’Ordre Royal et Militaire de l’Étoile d’Ardros, Maréchal d’Oleon

30857592724_6500403fce_z.jpg

Coat-of-Arms:

31523145086_6e75a1a73d_o.png

Ever since official records first appeared, there has been a de Tourment holding the ‘Southern Key’ and shielding Oleon from the perils of Halos. Traditionally, the de Tourments also hold the title and position of Connétable d’Oleon, providing able commanders for Oleon’s armies who have proven their loyalty in every single conflict in Oleander history. But the house is not only a source of military genius for the Crown. Over the last decades they have also grown rich as prime suppliers of the Royal Army - a development that isn’t to the liking of all at the Royal Court.

 

The Order of the Faith

The Order of the Faith is a secretive band of highly influential clerics that is heavily involved in Oleander politics.
As little is known fact about the Order and its agenda and ways, there are plenty of rumors out on the streets. Some see the Order's influence as a danger to the Monarchy, some even go as far as saying the Order already holds the true power over Oleon, with the Monarch acting only as a puppet. Others counter, pointing out that Oleon is free of dissidents, highlighting the Orders alleged importance for Oleon's inner stability and military might.
Wherever the truth lies, fact is that disagreeing with the Order is a good way to get into serious trouble!

The Order of the Faith can be read about in greater detail here.
 



The Land


Oleon is the largest country on the peninsula, and its land is naturally an important economic factor. Wealth is usually measured in land holdings, and hereditary grants pass on from father to son for generations.
In the interior, the rural nobility traditionally resides in prestigious chateaus, and peasants live in little hamlets, and work for their lords as they have for ages. There are few large cities in the interior, but towards the coast things are beginning to change as innovations are developed. Passing from a rural hamlet with the lord's impressive manor towering over it, to a bustling port town is like going from one world to another. A multitude of coastal hubs have begun to spring up.
With oceans bordering Oleon on either side, these towns have become quite numerous, and have contributed to a new emphasis on seafaring. The Order of the Faith has encouraged this emphasis, but is still eager to preserve the traditional social ways by keeping its mystical hold on the people. With its support, Oleon's navy has boomed. Her merchant fleet is growing by the day, and the Royal Navy is famous for large battleships and highly efficient gun crews, securing Oleon’s influence on the waves.

A fine example of an increasingly important city is Breshaun on Le Bellan. Founded not long ago, it has turned into a sparkling and ambitious regional centre.

Society and Culture


Traditionally, a typical Oleander's life centers around the values of – traditions. Considering themselves the most culturally advanced people, Oleanders take great pride in their rich heritage of arts and literature. They are generally pious people, living in accordance with the divine rules of the Gods. But temples are visited more for social reasons than out of religious zeal.

25843701044_d4649cd291_z.jpg

It is true that the Order of the Faith holds its sway over the people, but that doesn't refrain Oleanders from enjoying life. And especially the aristocracy is known throughout Halos for celebrating the most glittering balls and festivities.
Oleon's cities are well organized and planned, their silhouettes often dominated by impressive temples erected in honor of the Gods. The architectural style is mostly a mix of renaissance and baroque western European, dominant among secular buildings – especially among the many aristocratic and royal chateaus and palaces that are in constant competition to outshine each other – and classic Mediterranean influences, which are preferred for religious buildings.
L'Aile du Pontis (The Pontis Wing) of the Royal Palace in Granoleon is a great example for the supremacy of Oleander architects and craftsmen.

The Military

 

Oleanders are known to be fierce warriors if necessary. Military might is of paramount significance, as land is the defining social factor in society. Honor and bravery are values that every Oleander holds in high esteem, sacrificial soldiering on the fields of battle is every Oleander's duty, to die for the nation is considered the highest honor.

The Army

dsc01899.jpg

Ever since the days of King Arltrees the color blue is prominent in the uniforms and flags of the royal military. 
The standard military uniform always includes a blue coat, often but not always accompanied by white cross belts. A fleur-de-lys is not uncommon on the uniforms and flags either.
As presented above, the standard military flag is a white cross on a blue background with a crown over crossed cannons, but there are numerous deviations from these standards. In every case, however, the color blue must be present!

(some conventional flags)

As a result of a history of warfare, mostly with Corrington, many cities and ports are fortified with large walls and impressive fortresses to protect the citizens in case of an invasion.

The Navy

Oleon's Royal Navy – or La Royale as she is affectionately called by the people – is among the finest and largest in all of the known world.
Heavily expanded after the Forty-Nine Years War at the instigation of the Order of the Faith, La Royale managed to have the edge over Corrington's navy during the following Juniper War, but has since then been locked in a stalemate with her biggest rival.
Oleon's master shipwrights are considered leading in the construction of heavy warships, and the emphasis on constant training and education has lead Oleander gun crews to become the most efficient in the known world.

Here you can see a fine example of Oleander ship building, the glorious HRS Pride of Oleon.

Ranking System

If you create your sigfig you are - of course - free to give it any rank you wish. So if you want - for example - a Captain to sail your ship through the waters of New Terra - create a Captain. If you want a Major fighting off Oleon's enemies on the fields of battle - create a Major. However, we would ask you not to start out too high up in rank right away. There are certain official ranks that can be earned, and they bring in-game benefits and lots of prestige - not to mention the awe of your foes.

So fight for your own and Oleon's glory and rise through the ranks - do you have what it takes?

Army Ranks:

  • Maréchal (Marshal)
  • Général d'Armée (Army General)
  • Général de Division (Division General)
  • Général de Régiment (Regiment General)
  • Colonel (Colonel)
  • Lieutenant Colonel (Lieutenant Colonel)

Naval Ranks:

  • Grand-Amiral d'Oleon (Grand Admiral of Oleon)
  • Amiral (Admiral)
  • Vice-Amiral (Vice Admiral)
  • Contre-Amiral (Rear Admiral)
  • Chef d'Escadre (Commodore)
  • Capitaine de Vaisseau (Ship-of-the-Line Captain)

Rank Requirements and Benefits:

Promotions can be earned through military contributions, means through repeated and active participation in war campaigns, fleet actions, through acts of bravery, and - as a base requirement - you need to loyally follow orders.

For promotions to High Command - Général de Régiment respectively Contre-Amiral and higher - a noble title of at least Marquis is required - to make sure only the best of the best command Oleon's finest.

'But where's the beef?' - you may ask. Well, excelling in military actions is a profound way to boost your social standing in Oleon. It will lead to some shiny medals and ribbons, can contribute to your house's growing reputation, and might eventually get you His Majesty's attention - which can open doors you didn't even believe existed. And - who knows - maybe one day you'll end up commanding the unit you were once fighting alongside with - or determine the fate of a whole royal fleet in the vast waters of New Terra.

 



Diplomacy

Oleon has a hostile history with Corrington, and during the last war the two factions proved to be an even match.
Officially there is no direct trade with Corrington, but various goods do make there way around via Eslandola and smugglers of all sorts.
Pirates are tolerated as long as they don't operate within Oleon claimed waters, piracy is a crime and offenders will be brought to justice when they are caught.

(Note: Relationships are judged on a 1 to 5 scale; Very Friendly, Friendly, Indifferent, Unfriendly, Hostile)

Oleon's relationship with...
Sea-Rats: Indifferent
Eslandola: Indifferent
Corrington: Indifferent

 



Membership

To sign up, post a picture of your signature figure, preferably accompanied by Oleon's formal flag colors. You are welcome to include a bit of a description as well. 
Your signature figure, or sigfig, will represent your character throughout your MOCs within Brethren of the Brick Seas. (That does not mean that your sigfig has to be in every MOC you make)
Although this is the “Bluecoat” faction, that does not mean that everyone should have a bluecoat soldier as sigfig.

Within BoBS there are many possibilities. Build your own story – for example, your sigfig could start out as a carpenter that decides to work on a ship. Via battle experiences he ends up getting his own ship, eventually becoming a privateer in His Majesty's service, etc.

For those still uncertain of what faction to chose or how to sign up in a minute, we have some simple instructions here, which pretty much sum up everything.

Colonial Possessions

 

If you'd like to establish a settlement, please contact one of the members of the Oleon leadership team. In general, we would like a minimum of one settlement for each island. If you have an idea for a new settlement to establish at one of our new colonial processions, let us know!

The Royal Office of the Colonies would like limit settlements on islands that already have settlements. We feel that a fewer settlements per island is a better strategy militarily and economically than many small ones on all islands. However, if you don't ask to start a settlement, you won't know if you can.

Also, consider working with the established colonies to be how you'd like. Who knows, if there's no mayor, you may be appointed. Mayors are typically appointed for significantly contributing to a settlement or making a generous contribution to the empire.

 


 

Le Bellan

Nickname: The Jewel of Oleon
Geographical Features: With the island's shape that of a water drop, Le Bellan's geography is a bit straightforward. Mountainous territories at the center that end up flat whenever they meet the sea, except certain coasts in the west that are actually cliffs of average height. Very characteristic of the island are its three rivers that all start from the mountains and end up at the sea. Water supply is plenty on the whole island.
Rumors: Plenty (usually involving rich and nobles and their extravagant parties at Breshaun)

Settlement: Breshaun
Settlement: Eltina

 


 

Île de Zeus

Nickname: The Shrouded Isle
Geographical Features: Odd currents and wind patterns have almost permanently shrouded this island in a constant fog which rolls in and out multiple times a day. The island is heavily wooded, and 75ft at its highest point. There is a good water supply.
Rumors: There is a powerful artifact on this island, one which Zeus dropped himself. This causes the clouds to be attracted to the island. It seems hard to see on this island, and may be hard to see ships approaching as well.

25842724636_19863ec445_c.jpg

Settlement: Astrapi

 


 

Île de Tyche

Nickname: The Trap
Geographical Features: A small island, no more than 30 miles long, it is shaped as an upside down and backwards “L” the inner bay seems to have become a final resting spot of at least three explorer’s vessels and crews. This is caused by a unique wave pattern that comes crushing in towards the center of the “L”. The island itself has a higher elevation than “New Terraversa” which it sits only seven miles form. It has rocky cliffs, but none of the swamps that its neighbors have.
Rumors: It is rumored that a great Pirate Lord has made this island his home, and within it is a great Gold mine.

Settlement: Cecropia

 


 

Pharos

Nickname: The Tadpole
Geographical Features: Maybe 10 miles at its longest, and under a mile wide at points, the tadpole is the smallest major island in the region. Like the Smoker, it sits up on bluffs, and old Volcano falling back into the water through erosion. There is little soil for producing much more than rudimentary crops. However, the cliffs and its small size make it nearly impenetrable from sea. A true stronghold, with few resources.
Rumors: None

Settlement: Acropolis

 


 

Stéphanique

Nickname: The Old Man's Beard, The Woeful Miser
Geographical Features: The Island's bright white beaches cut by light grey limestone rock lend the island its first nickname. A well-weathered mountain makes up the middle of the Island, on the western slopes of which tropical forests grow. The Eastern coast is quite rocky, and there exists a natural harbour. Quarries may do well here.
Rumors: The earliest report stated that this Island held a vast supply of gold. The adventurer who reported this claim retired early with great sums of wealth, but no further claims have arisen. The original claim was never substantiated, and the adventurer cannot be located for comment.

Île Sous le Vent

Nickname: The Island of Clay
Geographical Features: Less humid than many islands in the seas of Prio, this Island's soil is comprised of hard clay. The surrounding sea is deep, and the beaches are sandy, with a few clay cliffs. This island lacks any tall peaks, but hosts a small forested area to the southwest. The north experiences large gusts of cooler wind. Mediterranean growing conditions exist here, and it has suitable grassland for grazing animals.
Rumors: Grapes may grow well here.

 


 

Île d'Or

Nickname: The Crown
Geographical Features: This island's coasts are white sand, and the surrounding sea is deep, but a small ridge of coral does exist to the west. The natives of this island dive for pearls in the reef ridge, where they also cast nets for fish. The Island's soil is rocky, and not great for crop growing.
Rumors: It is rumoured that there may be gold on this island. It is also suspected that the natives of this island are related to those from the glimmering archipelago.

Settlement: Fatu Hiva

Hello everyone! :pir-classic: I just discovered that I really found silver near to Astrapi, and I would like to start a little minerary village in the interior (tavern, general store, a geologist, a smith...). Since it wouldn't have a port, I think that is better build it as a district of the city, varying only the building style (something like Infero Pordejon division in high town and low town). What do you think?

@Keymonus Beautiful idea! You can start your own building a'la higher and lower districts of Astrapi OR you can always assume that your small mining community lies on the outskirts of Astrapi, thus using whatever building style you like! Anything is possible as long as you can tie it in with a story or a description of your liking!

Corrington should like to inquire whether your diplomatic stance towards our nation is still to be considered unfriendly. It is the cause of some concern that our mutual efforts during the last Era should not have had any effect.

Good point! Sir Montoya (or admiral Fletcher). Our mutual efforts should certainly not be overlooked and we are not neglecting your kind proposal, but our faction leaders are very busy, I know for sure BD is very busy now, he'll give you an answer, don't worry:look:.

FIXED: Unfriendly -> Indifferent :tongue:

Yeah, we are a bit snobbish I know, but I guess if you hadn't forcibly try to "protect" those immigrants, we would be at a better status :wink: . I can't stress enough that this type of relationship only reflects the main Oleander and Corrish governments and doesn't, in any way, directly affect personal feelings/agreements of our vassals towards a few of your loyal subjects

I can't stress enough that this type of relationship only reflects the main Oleander and Corrish governments and doesn't, in any way, directly affect personal feelings/agreements of our vassals towards a few of your loyal subjects

We are happy to see some improvement and is intent on continued positive development.

However, we are also saddened to find that you appear to subscribe to the Eslandian version of the "truth" about Operation Pax Corlandia. Should you have any misgivings about our intentions or actions, we are more than ready to discuss them in the proper forum.

(Although Montoya is currently not to be found... Last seen on his way to tortuga to meet captain Benjamin Morgan... :O )

Glad to see a little improvement has been made between our two factions. This can be considered as a good beginning and maybe we could work out something to ameliorate our relationship even further, for example transform our seasonal cooperation to a full weather one.:wink:

Lagaufre is very grateful of his King's generosity and he promises to serve his majesty with more ardour.

Vive le Roi!

I have retreived my bricks from long-term storage now and have started furnishing a room in the basement to become my very own 14 m2 MOCing-studio! Official sets, computer or other useless space-thieves will be kept to a minimum so this time it will be all-in on practical sorting :classic:
Looking forward to returning to fight for Oleon on the islands of the Brick Seas in a few months!

(Going to double up the Billy bookshelves on the other side and add 1-2 more glass cabinets for <32x32 MOCs and maybe an official set or two if I don't have enough stored MOCs in the beginning)

Yay! Welcome back! It feels like a friend is getting back in town, same as when KB was purposely trying to hurt himself and when he finished doing that, he returned :tongue:. We are waiting for you! MOC-ing space? I want some!!! With a baby incoming I have been confined to a bare minimum... We want photos of the room when you are done! Btw the only official set I would have displayed this period (if I had the aforementioned room), would be the awesome old fishing store :wink:
