THE NEW KGB KING'S HIGH COUNCIL JetStar 03/15/22 10:11 PM March 15th, 2022 - Year 24

[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]

THE KGB KING'S HIGH COUNCIL REPLACES THE KGB SENATE

KGB is about community, friends, and, most importantly, gaming. We have recently lost our way in the KGB government despite things going well in our factions and with the games themselves. Our sense of community, friendship, and gaming together took a back seat to politics and rivalries. The KGB Senate started to look more and more like a real-life job than the advisory body it was designed to be. As you all know, I made the difficult decision to start over.
The Senate will cease to exist going forward and return to its roots. I formed the KGB High Council over 20 years ago, and it eventually evolved into the KGB Senate. I have just authorized the creation of the new King's High Council with advice and consent from KGB King Romeo and KGB Supreme Court Chief Justice Derid. Article III "The King's High Council / Advisory Branch" of the KGB Constitution now reflects this change. Clear language assigns an advisory role instead of a legislative as initially designed and then mislabeled. All of the duties, responsibilities, and capabilities remain. Processes have been simplified and the role is not as demanding as it was becoming.
All Senators will automatically become members of the King's High Council. Former members of the Senate will be invited to return.

The King's High Council will begin operations on March 16th

You can read about the changes in the KGB Constitution Article III here: https://www.the-kgb.com/the-kgb-constitution/
The following will be posted in the King's High Council Chamber forum as the code of conduct that further defined Article III.

It will be made up of KGB Veterans that have shown interest in the health of the organization and/or have participated in leadership or other aspects of the KGB Government. Members will be selected by the King/Queen and High King/Queen. The King/Queen and High King/Queen will leverage this body to gauge support and approval for changes to the organization, awards, and general advice. King’s High Council members may also suggest changes, awards, etc via the proposal process defined below. Proposals that pass the KHC via the voting process would need King/Queen and (GM10) High King/Queen approval to be implemented or become law.

Conduct:
Thou shalt treat all persons with respect in all forms of communication at all times. King's High Council Members will strive to present themselves as honorable, respectable, and chivalrous at all times. Problems will occur and tempers will flare. Help solve the problems with calm discussion and be respectful. Take the time to review your posts and statements. Don’t post angry!
-King’s High Council will be held to a higher standard.
-This code will be strictly enforced.
-Violations will result in removal from the council and extreme violations of the conduct code or KGB general orders will be prosecuted.

Roles:
KGB King’s High Council Member

-KHC members are appointed by the King/Queen and High King/High King for a term of life or as long as they retain their KGB citizenship. A KHC member can be any KGB members regardless of position or responsibility
-KHC members have the option to create and post proposals using the proposal template pinned to this forum.
-KHC members are expected to check the forums and participate as much as possible. There are no participation requirements to hold this position. This allows for members to come and go to deal with RL and personal matters.
-The KHC is not a job, but a privilege. KHC members will play an important role in steering the organization and helping to change and modernize it as time passes.

KGB Prime Ministers and KGB Chiefs of Staff
Federal Faction leadership will manage King’s High Council processes. They would be responsible to:
-Participate in KHC as a full member
-Manage proposals, promotion requests, award requests, etc through the KHC process, including managing debates & discussions, helping to refine proposals, and bringing proposals forward for voting.
-Make sure KHC rules are being followed.
-Refer any violations of conduct code to the King/Queen and High King/High King and Supreme Court via Supreme Court Conduct Report if necessary.

King/Queen and High King/Queen
-Appoint and manage KHC membership
-The King/Queen and High King/Queen may participate and vote on proposals
-Accept or veto proposals passed by the KHC.

CHANGES TO THE KGB SENATE JetStar 03/10/22 06:18 PM March 10th, 2022 - Year 24

CHANGES TO THE KGB SENATE

Hello KGB Citizens,

I have decided to take some bold steps to correct a mistake I feel I made that has caused excessive strife and unrest among many of our citizens. A couple of months back, I wanted to further empower the membership with more say in how the organization operated by laying the groundwork for a more independent and autonomous KGB Senate. This has gone off track and left our leadership in an unsustainable position.
The Senate could not find common ground on several operational issues, and the discussions on these topics devolved into something that cannot continue. The founding principles of our organization are based on respect for others. Specifically, respect in all forms of communication at all times. I will let our founding documents speak for themselves:

Originally Posted by KGB General Order #1
Over time we have evolved, but a basic idea and code remain. Respect both your fellow Citizens, Friends, and Foes alike whenever possible. Problems will occur and tempers will flare. Help solve the problems with calm discussion and be respectful to others if possible.

Somehow we have lost this founding principle in the operations of the Senate, and I have concluded that the Senate in it's current form has become toxic and unable to achieve my goal of empowering the membership with more say in how our organization operates.

I feel we need to press the reset button and start over again from scratch.

I am therefore going to take the following actions. I am going to extend the temporary Senate operations suspension until April 15th, 2022. I am going to remove and re-write Article III (The KGB Senate / Legislative Branch) in partnership with KGB King Romeo. The Senate will resume operations with these new rules, goals, oversight, and operational procedures. We will enforce strict adherence to our founding principles on conduct. Violations of this will result in removal from the Senate and further actions if warranted.
Once Senate operations resume, the Senate will be able to propose, vote, and if accepted, implement changes to the new Article III and rules of conduct the King and I are going to implement.

There is a discussion thread for members only that can be found here: Members Discussion Thread

Raiding, Treasure, and Dungeons... Oh My!

It's been three whole months since the Knights of Glory and Beer, led by High Chancellor Selenian, first entered the world of Hydaelyn. Bolstered by a diverse officer corps, and propelled forward by our brave knights, KGB has undoubtedly left its mark on the land. In that time, the guild has seen massive gains to its roster, experienced profound losses, and learned valuable lessons of close bonds and overcoming adversity through friendship and trust. This is only the start of what is to come in the legacy of The Knights of Glory and Beer. Let's raise our mugs and give a toast to all of those who continue to adventure with us and for those who are no longer around. Cheers!

The exploratory commission created by the KGB Officer Corps. hired renowned explorer Cecilia Haubui to guide its more seasoned Knights through a bizarre and twisted tower that adventurers affectionately dubbed Heaven-on-High. You may be asking yourself, what kind of place is this? During my visit to the Old Sharlayan library, I stumbled upon an old research tome related to the tower. It described a menacing and malevolent construct, whose architect is unknown. An ever changing layout faces all those who dare to enter, and the magicks inside are still not fully understood.

[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]

The team, who consisted of Exey O’dababy, Lucian Redgrave, Selenian Dekgb and led by Cecilia Haubui spent months exploring, climbing, and carefully documenting all the interesting marvels and frightening terrors inside. The untold treasures brought back from this adventure are still being totaled by the KGB treasury and a commemorative Empyrean Shrine is now on display in the KGB Museum, located on the 2nd floor of the Free Company mansion.

[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]

Finally, I bring word to you on the Ascendancy raid team created and led by Zeric Lockhart. The Ascendancy raid team is a newly sanctioned, highly trained order of Knights deployed by the High Chancellor to take on more challenging foes around Hydaelyn. In the mere 2 weeks of the team's creation, they have already pushed their way past Coil 1 of Bahamut, and are looking to complete Coil 2 this weekend. The team consists of their Leader, Zeric, mentioned above, Rufin Raffindor and Shadowdale, the vanguards of the group, Alice Bailey, a seasoned healer, as well as Derid x, Valeraya Tsuki, Bladejewel Dekgb, and Ezri Moral, who are the teams main damage. In the reserves we have Screaming Penguin, and one open slot remains.

If anyone is interested in Joining the Ascendancy raid team, please contact Zeric Lockhart.

CONSTITUTION CHANGES COMPLETED JetStar 02/05/22 02:57 AM February 4th, 2022 - Year 24
[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]

CONSTITUTION CHANGES COMPLETED

As mentioned in the previous news story CONSTITUTION CHANGES NEEDED, gaps and contradictions in the current version of the KGB Constitution are interfering with smooth operations in the Senate. I felt there was no alternative but to unilaterally make changes to address these issues.

KGB has a long history of operations that contradict some of the verbiage in the Constitution. I have done my best to align our historical practices with the Constitution and provide as much clarity as possible.

What I have addressed:

Article 1 - Distribution of Powers, Section 1, Clause 1: The powers of the government of the KGB are divided into three distinct departments, the executive branch, the legislative branch, and the judicial branch; and no person or collection of persons charged with the exercise of powers properly belonging to one of these departments shall be permitted to exercise any powers properly belonging to either of the others, except as in this constitution expressly directed or permitted.
  • Historically Federal Officers have been able to serve in the Senate. Federal Officers that hold executive power or can by delegation, will no longer be able to serve in the Senate to avoid conflict. This includes the High King, King, and Prime Ministers. The Chiefs of Staff have duties in the Senate for Awards and Promotions and do not hold executive power. This means they can serve as Senators in addition to Chief of Staff. This has been defined in the Constitutional update in Article 1, Section 1, Clause 2 and 2a.
  • Historically Supreme Court Justices have been able to serve in the Senate. There was a conflict in the original version of the constitution that stated "The KGB Supreme Court will work in tandem with the(GM10) High King / High Queen or (GM5) King / Queen and Prime Ministers to enforce and review the laws of the Guild". There is no process nor historical precedent for this statement: "review the laws of the Guild". This statement created a conflict of interest and would bar Justices from serving in the Senate as they have historically. I have therefore removed this statement from Article 4, Section 1, Clause 1 to account for the court's historical role. Please see more below where this is addressed directly. This change removes the conflict of interest means they can serve as Senators in addition to Supreme Court Justices. This has been defined in the Constitutional update in Article 1, Section 1, Clause 2 and 2a.
  • Historically, Faction High Chancellors, and in some cases, other faction officers, have been appointed Senators as well. Their ability to serve in the Senate was not clearly defined in the Constitution. Since all Faction are subordinate to the Constitution, there is no direct conflict of interest. A statement was added as part of the Constitutional update in Article 1, Section 1, Clause 2 and 2a.
  • Removed the redundant "the (GM10) High King / High Queen or (GM5) King / Queen may remove any Senator at any time during his/her tenure and review his or her performance." from Article 3, Section 2, Clause 2. The Senate manages itself and can remove its own members by process. The (GM10) High King / High Queen and (GM5) King / Queen still retain overall control of membership status as defined in Article 2, Section 3, Clause 4, and Section 4, Clause 2.


PLEASE NOTE: All Senators are equal, meaning that an individual that serves across branches carries no authority or privledge from any other duty or position in the Senate. This is a key point.

Article 4 - Judicial Branch and Powers, Section 1, Clause 1:Section 1
Clause 1: The KGB Supreme Court will work in tandem with the(GM10) High King / High Queen or (GM5) King / Queen and Prime Ministers to enforce and review the laws of the Guild. The (GM10) High King/High Queen will appoint a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court for the term of life.

  • As mentioned above, the Court was created to provide impartial judgment when it comes to member conduct and violations of the KGB General Orders and laws. It was not designed to oversee the validity of KGB law. That duty is owned by the executive branch in the Constitutional Monarchy model.
  • The statement "to enforce and review the laws of the Guild" incorrectly assigns power and authority to the Court. This statement was changed to read "to enforce KGB General Orders and conduct code."
  • This change is in alignment with the historical responsibilities of the court and allows for Justices to continue to serve in the Senate.
  • Justices and recusal in Article 4, Section 1, Clause 8


Leadership is a thankless job. Service in the KGB Senate for KGB Administrators, KGB Chiefs of Staff, and Justices in the Supreme Court is considered a reward for the jobs they do and the services they provide. This gives them a direct say in how the guild is run and how it adapts over time. I felt it was very important to continue this tradition.

These changes allow the Senate to continue operations with it's current list of Senators. If additional changes are needed, they can be proposed and go through to process.

I will now instruct the KGB Senate Chair to resume operations.

CONSTITUTION CHANGES NEEDED JetStar 02/03/22 07:04 PM February 3rd, 2022 - Year 24
[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]

CONSTITUTION CHANGES NEEDED

The KGB Constitution has served us well for many years. It has several gaps and contradictions that are causing problems with the very active state we find ourselves in. These gaps and contradictions are interfering with smooth operations in the Senate. As your High King, I rarely act unilaterally in making major changes to the Constitution or KGB Law, but the current issues are limiting the Senate's ability to contribute. This means I have to exercise my powers as granted in the following sections of the Constitution in its current state.
Article II - High King / High Queen, King / Queen, Prime Ministers / Executive Branch, Section 1 - Attaining and holding Office, Ascension, Appointment, Clause 7: To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the KGB, or in any Department or Officer thereof.
and
Article V - Amending the Constitution, Section 1, Clause 1: The (GM10) High King / High Queen, may amend the Constitution whenever it is necessary.

Some of the issues I will be addressing:
  • General clean up and polishing
  • Removal of depreciated links and terms
  • Article I - Distribution of Powers, Section 1, Clause 1: The powers of the government of the KGB are divided into three distinct departments, the executive branch, the legislative branch, and the judicial branch; and no person or collection of persons charged with the exercise of powers properly belonging to one of these departments shall be permitted to exercise any powers properly belonging to either of the others, except as in this constitution expressly directed or permitted.
  • Cross branch service and involvement. Specifically, who can serve across branches and addressing potential conflicts of interest.
  • Duties and responsibilities of the KGB Judicial Branch


I am making these changes based on how the Guild has actually run for the past several years run as opposed to what is written. As I mentioned, there are several gaps and contradictions that need to be addressed.

I have asked the Senate to cease operations while I construct these changes over the next few days. I will post and explain all the changes when they are completed. Please stay tuned.

Two Worlds Unite...One Company Remains!

Today I bring you news regarding an ever-evolving story of camaraderie and a new frontier. High Chancellor Selenian has announced the Free Company’s quick and immediate withdrawal from our home server of Siren. Vice-Chancellor Exey O’dababy is tasked with staying behind and assisting the Knight Corps in their relocation. All other Officers have already transferred over to greet our members as soon as they have successfully transferred over. The Knights of Glory and Beer will be moving to the server, Brynhildr, which is located on the Crystal datacenter. This necessary move is to facilitate the union of KGB Knights that were stranded outside of our vastly overpopulated home world. This union is met with both happiness and sorrow. The Free Company paid a steep price in its relocation to its new home world. The fee of attrition has been felt by many members. Not every comrade-in-arms was able to make the move over to Brynhildr. And to the ones that have been left behind; we will carry on your spirit and never forget you.

If you are wondering how to begin the process of transferring. The Mega-Aetheryte that makes the transferring to new worlds possible is located in the Mog Station Store. Please be aware that this process does come at a monetary cost.

On my way to the Mega-Aetheryte, I had a chance to speak with Officer Cecilia Haubui, who when asked about the transfers, stated, “It's a necessary growing pain, I hope we can regroup and get moving along towards our goals soon.”

Members who have successfully made their way to the new world will not find themselves homeless and destitute. Oh, my friends, we are far from it. A much bigger Free Company house has been located and procured for the guild. The new mansion is necessary to house more Knights, supplies, and treasures from across the land. Even with the loss of some of our members, we still see our numbers grow, and all signs point to an exponential growth on this new server. Plans are already underway for the development of the new Free Company Concorde Mansion, located on Plot 35, 18th Ward, of the Goblet district in Ul'dah. There are even talks of a museum being erected to highlight the achievements of the Free Company.

[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]

[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]

Alas, we must call on our gatherers and craftsmen once again to help us reassemble our submersibles, as these vehicles were too large to safely make the transfer over. We also call upon the Knight Corps to help us level the guild, as our previous Free Company charter is not recognized in these news lands. We ask all Knights to get out there, quest, gather, and kill the enemies of Hydalean.

Only through the sheer strength of our will and finely honed teamwork will we succeed in this new world. See you out there!

As promised, as High Chancellor of KGB New World and High King of the KGB Federal Government, I am promoting Knights Phattaz (SirPhz in Discord and New World) and Sugawyrm to the rank of (G1) Knight General in the New World Faction.
General Phattaz and General Sugawyrm will run military operations for the Faction. Their positions will carry the following powers:
  • Lead military PVP and PVE operations for members that volunteer to take part
  • Appoint Squad leaders as well as Knight Captains
  • Declare war with approval from the High Chancellor/High King
  • Remove problematic members from Organized Military Operations (But not the Guild or the Faction)
  • Design and form spec combat teams


We are ready for the next step in organized combat in the New World Faction. Participation in military operations is voluntary. You as a member will be expected to follow the direction of military leadership or not take part in organized combat events.
Congratulations to General Phattaz and General Sugawyrm. We are all here to support you in any way we can.

*** Please Note ***
The KGB New World Faction has been converted from a Federal Faction to a Faction State. This means that Federal Officers outside of the King and High King do not carry rank in the New World faction. This action was taken due to a lack of interest in New World by the Federal government.

WELCOME ONE AND ALL! WE HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS FOR YOU TODAY

KGB’s first ever Triple Triad intercompany championship tournament has concluded with Exey O’dababy coming out on top. The fan favorite and Vice Chancellor of the free company, pulled out all stops with his infamous Bartz card, championing himself to victory. In a close and respectable second place, Bladejewel DeKgb, an up and coming new star, rose the ranks but was unable to clinch a victory against the more seasoned veteran. We look forward to watching Bladejewel’s career closely in future card tournaments. To all other players who participated in KGB’s first ever Triple Triad tournament, a hearty thanks is in order and good luck next time.

Did you know that the world of Hydaelyn consists mostly of water? It is because of this that High Chancellor Selenian set up an exploratory committee to research the viability of underwater research and exploration. Well today I can finally announce that the KGB Underwater Research Institute (KGB-URI) has created a prototype underwater vehicle, which they dubbed a “submarine”. The research so far has borne some fruit. While exploring the Ivory Shoals, The Sub, known as Boaty McBoatface (sigh), was able to unearth some ancient Aether crystals, which will be taken back to the institute for further study.

The KGB-URI is working hard on building a second submarine as we speak. The Free-companies harvesters are hard at work delivering the much needed supplies. Long time company harvester, Rufin Raffinador, said “Twas not difficult gathering the sorely needed materials. Verily, it was but time consuming. I of’t not find myself sleeping many nights and these hands borne witness to the countless hours towards that endeavor. Aye, but borne of these deeds, did a deeper understanding and meaning accrue. Not only did I help my friends, but in doing so helped myself”.

Finally, you may have noticed but the Free Company estate has undergone some changes. In the basement you will find a fully stocked bar, replete with a modern Garlemald television for watching the latest episodes of Inspector Hildibrand. Upstairs, a new addition of a fish tank and some rare fish have been included in honor of our successful underwater explorations.

Wishing you and yours a spectacular twenty-second year of the Second Astral Era
