Despite being commissioned in Summer 379YE, the Commonwealth embassy was not completed until shortly before the Spring Equinox 380YE. This followed several months of growing tension between the powerful south-eastern nation and the Empire, including a number of tariffs imposed by the Commonwealth government on Imperial imports and exports. The embassy stands in Siroc, on the southern coast of Madruga. For their part, the Commonwealth has sent word that a reciprocal arrangement has been made in the port of Leerdam, where a palatial estate has been made available for the use of Imperial civil servants.

The Ambassador to the Commonwealth is an Imperial title. It is an Imperial position appointed by the Imperial Senate.

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


Imperial Ambassador to the Commonwealth

The title has all the common powers of an ambassador: they receive a briefing, can receive a formal delegation, and may prepare a treaty.

Commonwealth Merchants

The embassy in Siroc means that the ambassador enjoys the benefits of mercantile support from traders keen to curry their favour. As a ministry, this allows them to purchase quantities of special materials at a set price. The ambassador spends their money and makes their choices during downtime from their character page. Money is removed from, and resources are placed into, the character's inventory when the downtime is processed.

The Ambassador to the Commonwealth is an Imperial position appointed by the Senate. Any Imperial citizen can hold this title, and the ambassador serves for a year. They can be revoked by the General Assembly and by the Assembly of the Nine.

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.
