Overview

The Mediator of Wreck oversees the Trading Hall at Wreck in Sermersuaq. The Trading Hall is a joint effort with the Warlock Asjka, on behalf of the Thule, that sees caravans of food travel to the Silver Peaks in return for rings of precious ilium. It was commissioned by the Imperial Senate during the Winter Solstice 384YE and completed shortly before the Summer Solstice 385YE.

Responsibilities

The Mediator of Wreck serves as liaison to Warlock Asjka of the Thule. In the event that the Trading Hall at Wreck, or those who travelling to trade there, were threatened, the Mediator would be expected to deal with those threats.

Powers

Ministry

As a ministry, the Mediator can purchase rings of ilium at a set price. The Mediator 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.

Appointment

This title is appointed during the Spring Equinox. The Mediator of Wreck is appointed by citizens of Wintermark who control military units. The larger the military unit an individual has, the more votes they can allocate in support to a candidate. The voting is handled by the civil servants in the Bourse.

Only a Wintermark citizen may hold the title. They do not receive a seat on the Bourse. As a title appointed through the Bourse they cannot be revoked by the Imperial Synod.

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.
