Discussion

His Illustriousness the Count of Oldenburg wishes for some clarification on the proposal. Firstly: during times of peace, will the states have control over their own contingents? Secondly: will the so-called  Römermonat be proportional to the number of men contributed? Because if not, small countries will have disproportionate financial burdens placed upon them. 

Maximilian I clarifies that this army doesn't replace each nations' army. Each state will continue to have their own army, but now a fraction of it will be gathered into a unified army. During peace time each state will essentially have full control over their forces, since during peace time the Reichsarmee will be demobilized or held at a very small number. Each state will be required to pay a small tax during war, while each state that provides soldiers will be required to pay for their personal contingents. 

The Count thanks His Imperial Majesty for the clarification, and will now certainly support the proposal.

Imperial Act of Procedure

In the year 1551, Albert von Wittelsbach, Chancellor of the Holy Roman Empire, proposes the following act in regards to the authoring and voting upon a law.

  1. Each proposed legislation will have a standard form. Below is the form accepted:
    • In the year XXXX, Name + royal house, hereditary/Imperial title, proposes the following act in regards to [subject matter of legislation].
  2. After the standard introduction is written, there will be a section detailing the findings the author has made in regards to the law, and this section will be titled the To Begin: section. The To Begin section is the culmination of the author's research on the conditions and components that affect or are important to the legislation. For example, if there is a law that proposes to change the capital of the Reichsregiment from Augsburg to Munich, the To Begin section would go as follows:
    • The author has found that many princes have trouble reaching Augsburg.
    • The city of Augsburg is plentiful in thieves and criminals, and endangers many princes.
  3. After the first section is written, there will be subsequent section which will detail the propositions of the legislation. Using the example from above, the proposition section would go as follows:
    • The capital of the Reichsregiment will be moved from Augsburg to Munich.
  4. The third section will detail all of the consequences and effects that will be felt once and if the legislation is passed. Using the example from above, the consequence section would go as follows:
    • Augsburg would no longer be capital of the Reichsregiment.
    • Munich will be the capital of the Reichsregiment, and would thus require suitable meeting place for the princes.
  5. The final section will be a final message that the author writes in order to give a succinct, clear message of what the law will aim to accomplish. Using the example from above, the final declaration section would go as follows:
    • This act is aimed to reduce the danger and travel time German princes undergo to be able to partake in Imperial politics.
  6. Note: For the introductory and proposition sections, Proper nouns will be underlined.
  7. Each section will be numbered, with the numbers going to the right of the section name. For example, To begin (1). All bulleted points under that section will have letters in parentheses.
  8. The voting section will be split up into two parts, for and against. Those who do not vote are assumed to have abstained the vote. Princes may only vote once.
  9. When a prince votes, there will be a standard when he writes his name. The standard goes as follows: Name + royal house, hereditary/Imperial title, on behalf of The Sovereign Nation for which the Prince Rules.
  10. In order for a vote to pass, there will be required more positive for votes than negative against votes.
  11. There will be a space for discussion under each voting section.
  12. There will be separate scribes chambers for both passed and tabled laws.
  13. Each law will be given a period of 36 hours (1 and a half years, in game) for voting.
