Charter of Imperial College of the Voice

By his Unmatched Virtue and Wisdom, His Most Discerning and Terrible Majesty, Storm-Crown and Dragon of the North, Tiber Septim, True Emperor of Cyrodiil and all Tamriel – its Human Kingdoms, beastfolk chiefdoms and the realms of yet-unconquered Elves – hereby endows this Imperial College of the Voice in the antediluvian citadel-stronghold of Markarth on Karth, amidst the Hold of The Reach, and grants its Masters the pedagogical charter to study and instruct the ageless Way of the Voice and return its practice to the Ancient and Honorable Art of War.

Whereas, the College – both its Masters and pupils – pledge undying loyalty to the Ruby Throne of this Third Empire of Man, destined to stand in everlasting triumph for all ages.

Whereas, the College shall keep its teachings in harmony with the ancient and honorable traditions of the Voice, and shall not suffer any transgressions on the part of its Masters or pupils that might perceivably tarnish the noble standing of its customs and the memory of its respected Masters of old, and show unswerving commitment to the absolute Truth, as pronounced by the Emperor’s word.

Whereas, the College shall admit only those Sons of the North whose loyalty – and the loyalty of their lineage – has been proven to rest solely under the Red Diamond Banner. Said pupils shall swear in both Oath and Deed, to develop and employ their Training and Talent to serve the Benevolent Will of their Emperor.

Whereas, the College shall carry out its scholarly obligations independent of the Hold-Throne of Karthwasten and its Ram-Kings, and any and all Kings, Jarls or Thanes that might one day claim, under the Full and Absolute Sovereignty of The Seat of Sundered Kings, local lordship of Markarth on Karth and its environs.

Whereas, the College, upon the passing of its Grand Master, shall submit candidates for a successor to the Imperial Palace of the Emperor, who commands the Unquestioned Right to appoint said successor to the previous Grand Master, or delegate such task to a trusted advisor.

Whereas, the College shall unbolt its doors to all Imperial Authorities conducting duties in compliance with the will of their Emperor, and aid said Authorities in their undertakings.

So long as these precepts are followed in their unswerving exactness, this Imperial College of the Voice may go about its praiseworthy charge to impart Kynareth’s Blessed Art unto new generations. May it be foretold that the mighty deeds of heroes of old will soon be equaled or surpassed on the battlefields of the present day.

Be it decreed
Emperor Tiber Septim
CE 859

Woah, how the hell did I miss this when it was strung up???

This sounds awesome but I'm not sure what it's trying to say - is Karthwasten Yoku-controlled at this point in time? The 'seat of sundered kings' I take as Cyrodiil, but not sure how that flows into the next bit about Markarth?
Whereas, the College, upon the passing of its Grand Master, shall submit candidates for a successor to the Imperial Palace of the Emperor, who commands the Unquestioned Right to appoint said successor to the previous Grand Master, or delegate such task to a trusted advisor.
I like what you're trying to do here with the Imperial bureaucracy!

Nice bit of text though.. this should be on a revered relic displayed proudly in the foyer or something.
<roerich> woah it's hot in here
<Lord Berandas> it must be Summer.
<Infragris> #hell is meant as a spam and off topic channel. Doing a great job already
