Does the imperial title that goes with the sinecure get generated automatically to be voted on at E3, or do I need to do that with the civil service on the field? (I would like it to be called ‘Guardian of The House of the Proffered Hand). I really, really want to run this one myself as it is so important for my character and her grand vision of building one in every nation of the Empire (am making good progress on 3 in other nations atm too!).
 
 
I hope this description is ok:
 
 
This is the formal description of the sinecure’s mission:
 
 
An institution established to help liberated slaves. We aim to provide shelter, sanctuary and physical and emotional healing to anyone who has been recently liberated from slavery. We will provide ongoing support and comfort to former slaves by giving them a safe place to stay while they recover, come to terms with their experiences and build themselves a new future. This will include guidance and teaching in the Way for any who have been deprived, or never had the opportunity to learn about it.
 
 
For the Empire as a whole, we will provide outreach and education, giving advice on how to help and support family and friends who have been rescued from slavery.
 
 
A description for flavour:
 
--
 
Situated in a small village on the edge of Astolat, just a stone’s throw from the border of Weirwater, The House of the Proffered Hand is a sinecure that has made use of an abandoned manor house and several smallholdings which had fallen into ruin since heavy losses in battle struck the village more harshly than many others. There are also many tents set up in the grounds, ready for an anticipated influx of liberated people.
 
 
There are gardens, both ornamental and those growing produce to feed the residents, tended by both staff and those in recovery, along with a hospital building to treat those who arrive badly hurt and also those with ongoing chronic conditions caused by captivity and torture. It is a peaceful place in a sheltered valley, employing many of the village residents and helping to rejuvenate the local economy.

House of the Proffered Hand

"House" is something of a misnomer, representing a small estate. Situated near Caer Faucon, a small village in southern Astolat not far from the border with Casinea, it is a peaceful place in a sheltered valley, employing many of the village residents and helping to rejuvenate the local economy, devastated by losses suffered in recent military campaigns. The House of the Proffered Hand made use of an abandoned manor house and several smallholdings which had fallen into ruin. The grounds also contain many tents and pavilions, set up to provide temporary accommodation and medical facilities for those who need them.

Central to the structure is a beautiful chapel, dedicated to the Seven Virtues, that serves both as a place of meditation and study of the virtues, and as a place to educate those unfamiliar with the Way. It is a popular destination for pilgrims, some of whom chose to volunteer to support the House's mission.

The estate includes extensive gardens, both ornamental and those growing produce to feed the residents, tended by both staff and those in recovery. There is also a hospital building for treating those who arrive badly hurt, or who suffer from ongoing chronic conditions caused by captivity and torture.
