The Supreme Senate of Ironforge [OOC]

The Senate of Ironforge is a community, politically themed roleplaying institution that works In-Character to serve the interests of Khaz Modan. It serves as a political arena for Ironforge and Khaz Modan primarily focusing on representing dwarven interest, yet, the closest ally of the dwarven nation, the Gnomes, are too, welcome in the ranks of the Ironforge Senate, to add their quick understanding of the world and intelligence to an ever changing political landscape.

Representing some form of IC government to give structure and activity the Senators welcome and encourage people  from all aspects of society, whether you’re a thief lurking in the Forlorn Caverns, a mage smuggling something through the city, a member of an underground movement or a law abiding dwarf, all are welcome to organize and approach us for co-operation OOC!
All are encouraged to both attend and apply for the Senate (should you be dwarf or gnome). The more issues that are brought before the Senate the longer we will roleplay, the more controversial these issues the deeper the repercussions will run.

The Veto of the Council: A mechanism that has functioned since the beginning of the Senate. It exists in order to counter-balance or halt any incredibly poor made decisions made by the Senate, whether they stand firmly against how Ironforge would behave or break lore in a very powerful way, this function exists to offer an alternative. Any decision that receives a large amount of well thought out complaints on legitimate ground will be reviewed and put to vote for being invoked.

Contact [OOC]: For information on applying to the Senate, one should contact the current Grand Chancellor. For general information on the Senate of Ironforge, one can contact any Senator. If you are a dwarf that is not on the legitimate side of society, then contacting the Seat you think you will be most involved in is the correct step forward for involving yourself with the Senate.

Contact [IC]: If you require handling a certain grievance, then sending a letter to the relevant Senator is the best of approaching this. If you wish to apply to the Senate then you must contact the Grand Chancellor. If you wish to apply for a working position within the Senate, then you must contact the Senator of the department you are applying for, or again the Grand Chancellor.

Above all else, attending the Senate meeting is the best way of involving yourself with the Senate and the way we’d all encourage you for.

The Supreme Senate of Ironforge [IC]

The Book of Senate

Introductory Note;
This book contains information that is useful for Thanes of the Dwarven Clans as well as the commoners among the streets should they need access to it.  This book contains basic information and extra information on the governing body of Ironforge and Khaz Modan, the Supreme Senate of Ironforge.

The Supreme Senate of Ironforge is at the very top of the civilian government system of Khaz Modan, as per request of the monarchy previous to the Council of the Three Hammers, the Senate of Ironforge has existed in dealing with day-to-day issues within Khaz Modan and helping keeping the tax flowing and the war machine rumbling. The Senate is responsible to both the people and the Council of the Three Hammers, putting their work in the spotlight for both the upper rungs of society and bottom.

The Senators are not chosen by social class or amount of wealth, these individuals are chosen on their personal attributes and potential to contribute to the nation in the designated role. Overall impression is also very important, therefore conducting oneself properly is of great import, Senators are after all the representatives of the Council of The Three Hammers and ought to act and behave accordingly.

All Senators that are sworn in are duty bound to answer and bow to none other but the Council of the Three Hammers or the reigning monarch of Ironforge and Khaz Modan, therefore as a symbolic act Senators are disallowed from bowing or bending the knee to any other. The only exception to this rule is when bending their knees and heads to the might and glory of the Titans.

Organization

The Ironforge Senate is into multiple departments. The departments are then divided into Seats that care for their respective specialties as each Seat is related to a specific duty. Should a dwarven Senator be unavailable or a department seat vacant, then the task may be taken up by another.

The Senate hold a weekly public gathering in the Library of Ironforge on Thursday at eight bells. Public announcements occur and matters of state are resolved, the Senators report both to the attendants and to the other Senators on both accomplishments and future plans for their Seat. As another important function, this gathering serves as a means for the people or foreign powers to gain a hold of the Senate in one guaranteed day of the week.

There are several issues that can only be resolved by the full Senate, if any of these actions are resolved by one Senator then this Senator can be expelled immediately.

• Declaration of War
• The forming or breaking of alliances
• The enactment of new laws
• Major reorganization of any part of dwarven society
• Election of new Senators

As well as major decisions by any one of the departments,  should a pressing issue demand immediate action, the action may be taken but it must be brought up for a vote at the next meeting of the Senate.
The Senate itself, for better organization is divided into three main departments with four additional Seats in existence.

The Department of War

Seat of War is responsible for the senatorial branch of the Khaz'Modan armed forces. Second in command to only the Council of the Three Hammers, the Senator of War may assume full command of any military operation the armies of Khaz Modan are involved in. The Senator of war is not at liberty to decide when a war is begun or ended, such a decision can only be reached by a vote of the Senate or the Council of the Three Hammers themselves.

Seat of Arms is considered the 'junior' role within the Department of War but a seat upon the Senate none the less. The Seat of Arms is responsible for the management and handling of the equipment, supply lines and logistics of the Khaz Modan military. The Senator of Arms duty is to ensure that the Ironforge Military is always kept supplied wherever it may be. A responsibility that is often considered unimportant but is infact a task that keeps the entire war machine together.

The Department of Justice

The Seat of Law handles the legislature of Ironforge, maintaining that the laws of Khaz Modan are kept modern and progressive, naturally always reflecting the will of the Council of the Three Hammers. The Seat of Law is also tasked with maintaining that the guards within both Ironforge and the Kingdom of Khaz Modan are well equipped, well trained and informed of their own duties thoroughly.

The Department of Hearth

Seat of Religion and titan exploration handles the spiritual aspect of the people of Khaz Modan. With the two key religions being Titan Worship and the Holy Light, the Seat of Religion is a diverse yet important pillar of morale support for the citizenry and soldiery of the Kingdom of Khaz Modan. The Senator of Religion is also in duty to the appointment of both High Priest, and Priests within the Temple of Ironforge.

Seat of Exploration and Tradition handles the archaelogical and demographic escapades of the Kingdom of Khaz Modan. It serves as a liasion between the Explorer's League and the Senate while at the same time catering for all the cultural activities within the Kingdom of Khaz Modan, often than nought working closely with the Seat of Religion.

Seat of Magic takes cares of the regulation and safety of use of Arcane within the Kingdom of Khaz Modan. Making sure that only legal forms of magic are practised and taught, as well as handling other magic related affairs within the Kingdom and outside of it. The Senator of Magic oversees the success of the Arcane Library and works closely with them, being their liason to the Supreme Senate of Ironforge. The Seat of Magic also works closely with the Seat of Law in order to ensure that the right legislation exists for those practising magic within the Kingdom.

Additional Seats within the Senate

Seat of Finance handles the economics of the mountain Kingdom, making sure that the lucrative trade opportunities within and outside the Kingdom of Khaz Modan are being used in an efficient manner to enrich the coffers of the great nation of Khaz Modan. The Seat of Finance is also responsible for the management of the finances within the mountain kingdm, with a particular fixation on tax collection from both the Thanes of Clans and private citizens.

Seat of Inventions handles all the industrial and technological advances of the Kingdom. The Senator of Inventions is responsible for the overview of the research of new instruments for both civilian uses and military for the further development of society within the Kingdom of Khaz Modan.

Seat of Diplomacy is tasked with the diplomatic relations of Khaz Modan, bearing in mind that final diplomatic resolutions lie with the Senate.The Seat is more of a representative Seat and is often seen travelling the great capitals and cities of the Alliance in order to keep the relationship of Khaz Modan and her allies fluid and successful.

Grand Chancellor is the Chairman of the Senate, declaring when the Senate will begin and end as well as deciding the program of the day. The Grand Chancellor is tasked with maintaining an orderly Senate and making sure that Senators arrive on time, explain any absences. Another important role that is designated to the Chancellor is the interviewing and application reviewing for new Senators, while the Grand Chancellor is unable to solely welcome in fresh faces to the Supreme Senate of Ironforge, the Grand Chancellor can make sure that the applicant is brought forward and made known of.

Additional Information

Deputy of the Senate: A deputy of the Senate is an individual, charged by the Department they are working in to be a deputy of the Senate. The role is simple and flexible, much like an apprentice within a knighting order, a deputy of the Senate fulfills smaller roles for his/her mentor Senator and works tirelessly for their department. This is a stepping stone position to being taught into the position of a full-time Senator.

Senate Guard: If you're short on time to play, and find yourself still seeking to do something revolving around the Senate, become a guard of the Senate. Your duties involve what regular duties involve and a tad bit more, ensuring that no weapons are brought into the Senate. Protecting the lives of the Senators against any threats that may emerge and maintaining the law and order within the Senate. Senate Guards are vital when an unpopular but necessary decision is passed by the Senate, as situations can often get dangerous. Senate Guards are also required because some Senators have a habit of being assassinated or killed by their allied nations soldiers.

Senate Herald: The Senate Herald is an individual whom announces the resolutions and decisions of the Senate made in the week before in order to bring all those attending up to speed. The Senate Herald can also sometimes be charged to walk the streets of Ironforge and announce any very important decisions that need be known quickly. It is a well paid and simple job associated to the Senate of Ironforge and one that is also highly contested.

I actually found it on Deviantart just like the senate-like picture, the criteria I searched for was "Drunk Dwarf" if I recall correctly. ^^

P.S, Lex, Dwarven Blood isn't classified as blood, its more... A gooey mass of a reddish ale.

The Grand Senate of Khaz Modan is in need of more trustworthy Senators and Judges. You do not need to be member of TTH in order to become a Senator, should you be interested and if you know that you got what it takes to become a Senator then poke me or any Officer online for more Information, or come to the next Senate - Thursday 20.00 server time.

For Khaz Modan!
