The Keeper of the Garden is an Imperial title that grants custodianship of a sinecure, requiring minimal responsibility but offering a regular income of liao. Construction was proposed to the Senate by Cesare Sanguineo Rezia Di Tassato, in his position as Senator for Tassato during the Spring Equinox 385YE. The Garden of Glory is deep in the woods of Lower Tarn Valley, Therunin.


The Keeper of the Garden has a responsibility to protect the Garden of Glory. If the Garden were to be threatened in any way, it would be the responsibility of the Keeper to deal with those threats.


Offer of liao

The workshop at the Garden of Glory produces twelve doses of liao each season. The Keeper receives six of these doses. The other six are the property of the briars who reside in Lower Tarn Valley.


The Keeper of the Garden is a national position which is appointed by judgement of the Navarr National Assembly. Only a citizen of Navarr may hold the title.

The Keeper has tenure and serves until they die or step down. They can be revoked by the General Assembly, the National Assembly of Navarr, and 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.
