    Flinching as the Governor's hands came slamming down on the desk, the cup of tea so nicely prepared earlier flying to the floor and shattering. Angus took a moment to compose himself before stammering.. she..she..has declared cove no longer exists and now everyone ha...has been brought under Vesperian law and taxation...apparently it's an effort to rebuild the town since the local government is no more. Troops now occupy the city and citizens have now been ordered to...to...to obey the rules of the Army or be charged with treason.

    Eyes widening and while rubbing his now very sore hands Aragorn took a moment to ponder this by pacing up and down the width of the room behind his desk (which is a short pace indeed). Treason? For simply not following an order? . What are we to do bout this Angus? We do not have the resources nor the troops to fortify cove since the previous invasion has sapped both and with rumors of another invasion on the way we cannot afford to send a contingent there and in any case invading vesper or cove would be unwise *ponders*. Angus send a envoy under flag of friendship to Cove to see what is happening with the city and have them report back to me, give this to the envoy captain in case they are intercepted by Anna's troops. *scribbles a official document before sealing it and giving it to Angus*
    *taking the document in hand* Yes my Lord it shall be done immediately.

    Watching his aide de kamp leave, Aragorn sinking into his chair ponders the potential consequences of this annexation of cove under pretense of rebuilding it. Hmm 1/10 of each covians income taxable under this new tithe law, becoming nothing less than an occupation by force. Treason simply by someone disagreeing? *sighs* oh Anna what are you thinking here, this may not end well Governess...for anyone.

    *fixes himself another cup of tea before settling down to look at yet more reports*
