The Master of the Sword Academy of Temeschwar is an Imperial title awarded to a citizen of the League. Construction of the Sword Academy of Temeschwar was announced by D'ardante as Bearer of the First Imperial Wayleave during the Autumn Equinox 385YE following an opportunity presented that season. Work was completed shortly before the Winter Solstice 385YE.

While the title is officially Master of the Sword Academy of Temeschwar, many citizens of Temeschwar prefer to use the much pithier Maestro of Wolves.


The Master of the Sword Academy of Temeschwar is responsible for setting the syllabus for the academy and is expected to invite the best tutors and instructors to teach there. If the academy, the pupils, or the staff were to be threatened in any way, it would be the responsibility of the Master to deal with those threats.


Master's Stipend

The Master of the Sword Academy of Temeschwar receives an income of 2 thrones, 3 crowns, and 16 rings each season.


The Master of the Sword Academy of Temeschwar 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 Master 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.

Recent Elections

This title is currently held by Valentina von Temeshwar. 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.
