I hope Chaun'De isn't causing to many troubles. Zhuge brow furrowed a bit as he looked down from the tower array he was working on towards the central spire in the distance. Well she hopefully has reigned in her excesses a bit more then usual with the warning I gave her about messing with the Jarl. I have been continuing to restore more of Harkynvhal's functions to take advantage of the quiet time are Empire has unusually been blessed with. The three towers that still had functioned are all now fully repaired and the wiring, conduits, and control panels were all replaced now as well. It has taken a great deal of time to get this much completed, but with the control panels restored the ability to control a portion of Harkynvhals defenses and functions is beginning to return. I really mut think of a way to properly reward my women for all of the work they have put in to bring this Empire into proper order. Ok let finish the exterior repairs Rune and Keris and I think we cna then go to the next tower.
Letter to Emperor Brutus I – Excerpt from Zhuge Liangs messages
As requested Chaun'De has completed her assessments and evaluation of the Harkynvhal Court. The additional information for you have been summarized below.
Jarl Ma'Grov – Ruler, 65 male. Has strong duty to his people and believes rulers should act for their people and protect them.
Chief Outrider (Ambassador) – Ryster Ma'Grov Chief Negotiator 25, male. Youngest of two sons of the Jarl. He is primarily a diplomat. His fighting skills are middling. He however is an excellent horseman. While he wishes to be able to always ride free he has a deep belief in the duty to his family and his people.
General – Ku'Lhain Ma'Grov General of Troops 32 male, he is known as a great warrior who has excellent fighting prowess. He is martially gifted and we believe that Battle is the crucible of glory best describes him as well as his devotion to his family.
Minister of Agriculture – William Skarsgaard Head of Agriculture 40 male, He is a studious man in charge of growing crops for the city where they can. The best description of him would be that patience pays off seems to be his maxim as is the loyalty to his younger brother.
Minister of the Interior – Gunther Skarsgaard Head of the Interior 33 male, a stern but fair man he is known as taking his job very seriously. A special note should betaken that he doesn't tolerate disrespect to himself or others around him.
Captain of the Guard – Rikkon Fremaro Guard Captain 24 male, A young capable young man who has yet to step out of the shadow of the man who held the position prior. He is struggle to gain the proper respect of his city guards currently. He is best summed up as a man trying to redeem the honor of his house and a man who knows the duty ot the people and the city.
Chaun'De also indicated additional details regarding the people in the houses of the city. Currently it breaks down as House Ma'Grov, House Skarsgaard, House Fremaro, House Dhalsym.
As more information becomes available to us I will report it to you. Overall my impressions of the city are the same as prior. It is competently ran with excellent leadership in place and functions quite well. My only real worry is the peoples loyalty is to the ruler still and not necessarily to the empire. I think some additional actions or works here should help blend that more. I will also investigate more ways I could assist in getting the city more Empire loyal as a whole.
It was noticed that Jarl Ma'Grov's age is starting to catch up to him some. I was thinking o offering several works projects for the city. Some options I thought for your review are as follows:
1. Rejuvinate Ma'Grov
2. Complete some rituals on the grounds of the city to make them stay fertile to grow more food with less work.
3. Repair more of the ruined infrastructure of the city like the street lights etc while doing the work on the Manses Restoration.
4. add wards to the city area to prevent demon, ghosts, and other entities from being able to enter the city areas.
If there are other thoughts you may have as well I am happy to review them for the best solutions we could provide.
