Lords of Long Beach
“If a man is proud of his wealth, he should not be praised until it is known how he employs it.” – Socrates
The city of Long Beach is as old as I. Its history is written in its blood. We remember the blood. The Invictus long ago drove out the would-be Lords of the Kindred, and we maintain the traditions set forth by the founders still today.
We have not been without trials, without tribulations. But we have persevered. We have cemented our rule and amassed untold treasures. You are now a part of this blood, this history. You will have a share, however small, in the blood of Long Beach.
Trials await us still. Change threatens our tradition on all fronts. But we will weather this as we always have. With all our resources, pooled for the common good of the Invictus. That is what you swear this day. Rise.
-His Grace Sebastian Torrence, Viscount of Santa Ana, formerly Prince of Long Beach
