The Chatelaine of the Reapers' Repose is an Imperial title awarded to a citizen of the League. The Reapers' Repose was commissioned by the Imperial Senate during the Autumn Equinox 384YE following an opportunity presented by Sovia Lahm von Temeschwar. Work was completed on the Reapers Repose shortly before the Winter Solstice 384YE.


The Chatelaine of the Reapers' Repose has a number of responsibilities; to oversee the running of the Reapers' Repose treatment centre, to provide virtuous counselling and therapeutic interventions to Imperial citizens, and to ensure that strict visitor-counsellor confidentiality is maintained. In addition if the Reapers' Repose were to be threatened in any way, it would be the responsibility of the Chatelaine to deal with those threats. Likewise, if any opportunity relating to the Repose presented itself, they would make any decisions needed to take advantage of it.


Chatelaine's Profits

The Chatelaine of the Reapers' Repose receives a seasonal income of 2 thrones from the Reapers' Repose, and 3 doses of Tranquil Nostrum from the Emerald Magpie Guild.

Suite at the Repose

The Chatelaine has a private suite within the Repose. These spacious chambers have been designed to ensure comfort and rest and allow the Chatelaine, or any of their friends or family, to recuperate and relax away from the hectic, competitive lifestyle of the League.


The Chatelaine of the Reapers' Repose is selected by unanimous decision of the the League senators. If a unanimous decision cannot be reached, the title may be appointed by the Imperial Senate instead.

The title can be held by any League citizen. The Chatelaine has tenure, and serves until they die or step down. They can be revoked by the General Assembly, the League National Assembly, and by the Assembly of the Nine.

Reapers' Repose

The Repose is a proud palatial lodge bearing the symbols of the Crimson Reaper Cartel; a red rose and green fern growing through a skull, and the Emerald Magpie Guild; a magpie in flight clutching vibrant green gemstone. There is a plaque above the grand entryway, flanked on either side by Butcher's Cleavers that reads "paid for and built by Laughlan vi Temeschwar, Quartermaster of the Crimson Reaper Cartel and Master of the Butcher's Bank".

The grounds are landscaped by the finest gardeners of Holberg and provide the idyllic setting to best takes advantage of the oasis of calm and serenity. Open-air pools of heated water allow those of unquiet spirit to meditate upon the cares that weighed them down in the company of their peers. A well-dressed staff, in the green of the Emerald Magpie Guild and with sashes of the red and black livery of the Crimson Reapers, are trained to support the advisors and physicks trained in the treatment of the mind and spirit who work to help everyone who visits.

Recent Elections

This title is currently held by Amalie. This title has tenure, the occupant may hold the title until it is revoked, they die or they relinquish the position. The table to the right shows the citizens who have been elected to hold this title in the years since Empress Britta died.

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.
