The Mistress of Medicine is an Imperial title commissioned by the Imperial Senate in Summer 384YE. The position of Mistress of Medicine is a sinecure, requiring minimal responsibility but offering a regular income of valuable herbs.

The Angelica Vergo di Sarvos Memorial House of Healing is in the region of Riposi, Sarvos.


The Mistress of Medicine has a responsibility to support the national block of the League in excursions through the Sentinel Gate. If the House of Healing were to be threatened in any way, it would be the responsibility of the Mistress to deal with those threats. Likewise, if any opportunity relating to the House presented itself, they would make any decisions needed to take advantage of it.


Bounty of Herbs

The Mistress of Medicine receives an income of 18 drams of cerulean mazzarine each season from the Angelica Vergo di Sarvos Memorial House of Healing.


The Mistress of Medicine is selected by unanimous decision of the the League generals. If a unanimous decision cannot be reached, the title may be appointed by the Imperial Military Council instead.

The title can be held by any League citizen. The Mistress 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 Donato Zanella di Riposi di Sarvos. 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.
