  • Once complete the Brass Coast title of Hakima of Salt and Sand will be available to appoint by Tally of the Votes
  • The Parador of Sand and Salt could be expanded into a College of Magic at any point, with a significantly reduced upkeep cost.
  • Imperial law prohibits a title being legally restricted to a specific group of people, but the opportunity makes it crystal clear that the Freeborn who attend Anvil would be expected to ensure that they only ever elected a Hakima to the position and there would be consequences if they appointed anyone else.
  • In addition to these benefits, the Parador would further solidify the central important of Quzar in Madruga and create a community of supportive hakima who could help with magical research if given the right facilities. While the Parador stands, it could be upgraded into a full College of Magic at any time at a cost of 55 wains of mithril and 55 wains of weirwood, 55 wains of white granite, and 330 crowns. The upgrade would require a commission slot and could be authorized by anyone with the power to commission a college of magic. The Hakima would retain the ability to purchase mana crystals from the Parador but gain the additional abilities provided by a college of magic.
  • If the Parador were upgraded then the presence of so many hakima in Quzar would provide a crucial additional benefit. As long as the Hakima of Sand and Salt was seen to be a hakima in good standing, then the total seasonal upkeep of the Empire's colleges of magic would be reduced by 20 thrones a season.
