That's probably more true in less-formal circumstances. That is-- if people who have sworn here keep swearing and swearing and swearing (and/or talking about how they've sworn) elsewhere, I might agree with you.

I, also, swore an oath a few months ago. As time goes on and I settle more comfortably into the role, I find myself talking about it less.

But to get there, I had to take the oath in the first place. For me, that was private, mostly, but this?

This is a part of an extremely public event.


That's fair, I guess... it's just...

To an outsider, a lot of this seems... well... weird.

I understand how you feel, Ms. Culombe. The Society has welcomed me and has, for the most part, accepted me for who I am. There are times, however, that I'm distinctly reminded that for all the warmth they have given me, I am still an outsider.

One of things that I have noted is that the unifying element of their Faith is a source of strength for the Amarr people. It gives them deep roots in the past and provides a fabric that brings and holds the myriad people of Amarr together. Empress Jamyl I was more than just a leader to them, but an inspiration. She was the best of them. Her loss was, and still is, profound. After such a loss, and the grieving and recovery that followed, there is a need for them, the Amarr, to be assured that they still stand as one, that the ancient tree of their society has not been sundered. So, they stand as one and affirm their loyalty to the new Empress and the Empire over which she now rules.

I, Elmund Egivand, swear to finish that essay I started for the perusal of Ms. Felise Selunix before October the 30th, through headaches, sleepiness and having potatoes stacked on the top of my scalp.

I, Elmund Egivand, also swear to build ten potato-powered clocks within one week for the amusement of a certain someone who is slinking around snickering behind my back.

I, Warrant Officer Karina Ivanovich, wish the new head of leadership in the Empire a long and successful reign.

May the ties between the Empire and the State never break, and grow stronger under such leadership.

May both Amarr and the State be triumphant on this, the week of her crowning.

Some call me insane. If the universe is sane, then I embrace that label.

Is that number supposed to be significant for some reason?

I, Morgan Vârcolac, would love to swear fealty to the new empress however I already swore my fealty to the Provists and the Templis Dragonaurs some odd years ago and I don't think I can sell my soul twice.

I'm sure we can work on Reclaiming that...

Can't really promise anything other than that.


It's important to understand that you can't swear 'fealty' to an elected official. For one thing, fealty is a feudal concept due to a Lord by his tenant. For a second, Roden may well be defeated in the forthcoming election, so Federal citizens would have no personal duty to him any further.

Support and defend the constitution, that's what required of a Federal citizen. Vote for whoever you feel will do this best. Otherwise, party.

Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.
