Oswi Twice-Burned of the Saker
The first ambassador to Jarm was appointed in Autumn 378YE

Overview

The Ambassador to Jarm is an Imperial title. It is an Imperial position appointed by the Imperial Senate. The title was created as a consequence of the embassy commissioned by the Imperial Senate in Winter 377YE. While work was completed after the Summer Solstice 378YE, wrangling continued for several months. The Jarmish House of Princes demanded that the Empire select one of the three primary ports - northern Kavor, southern Vezak, or upstart eastern Rigia as the location for an Imperial embassy - an obvious move to entangle the Empire in the internicine internal wranglings of the Jarmish government. The decision was made to choose Rigia, and formal relations between the two world powers opened shortly afterwards.

Responsibilities

The ambassador is expected to represent the Empire in relations with the Principalities of Jarm. They have all the responsibilities common to an Imperial ambassador.

The Title in Play

The role does not provide additional information about events in the Empire, nor allow the player holding it to request special reports or downtime actions. These details are assumed to be below the abstraction layer. The title holder is encouraged to create their own stories about their activities within reasonable limits and to get involved in events appropriate to their title during the game, but they do not have any powers beyond those explicitly listed in the section on powers.

These details exist partly to provide context and character to the role - and partly to allow our writers to use the title as a plot hook. Plot that involves the position will be rare - but all the campaign positions in Empire have these details to create the potential for it to happen.
