    *Report to Queen Dawn from Carinthian, Elected Commander of the True Britannians**
    Queen Dawn,

    I begin with an introduction. My name is Carinthian WorldWalker. I am a sworn Order Knight in the service of the Hidden the Kingdom of Lore. Our Kingdom is a small, independent nation of Virtue located outside the borders of Britannia in distant Malas.

    I lead a small intershardal expeditionary force sent on a mission to find the world known as, “First Shadow”. Our quest has taken us across the multiverse, spanned countless years, and until we arrived in these lands a few months ago; met with little success. It is our belief that this Sosaria, is in fact the land we have been seeking.

    Since that discovery, our mission has changed from one of aimlessly searching the worlds of the multiverse, to one of focused preparation in anticipation of the arrival of our King to this land. I can not go into details but a key aspect of that preparation involves supporting Britannia in re-establishing virtue, law and order to the Dark Facet. To that end we have joined forces with the True Britannan Army and have successfully liberated Felucca from enemy hands.

    Magincia remains under the protection of the Council of Mages in your name. After initial skirmishes with the Council Armies, the Field Commanders of the Council and True Britannians came to terms that would grant uncontested control of the ruins of Magincia to the Council Soldiers provided they swore oaths to serve as the Wards of Queen Dawn over the Magincia territory while agreeing to establish and abide by Britannian law. We are unsure whether the Commanders of the Council were working independently or under the direct orders of the Council hierarchy. It is our hope that this is a sign of political progress with the Council and such an alliance can be made more permanent.

    The following pages of the report that outline a Strategic Defense and Economic Recovery Plan aimed at: 1) Establishing firm military control of Crown Cities 2) Rebuilding the Feluccan Economy.

    Page 1

    In formulating a comprehensive economic and strategic defense plan for Felucca, the Commanders of the Britannian forces have designated
    Cities into four categories: Strategic, Specialized Trade, Free Trade and Allied Protectorate.

    Strategic Cities: Cities that have this designation are of the utmost military importance to the protection and security of Felucca. These cities are heavily guarded and have a strong military presence. Taxes and the cost of goods are highest in these cities because of the great cost required to fortify the towns from invasion and maintain large standing militias. Trade permits to merchants wishing to sell additional goods over the standard allotment are granted only in emergencies because of the draw from the town’s treasury.

    Cities of Strategic Status:
    Britain: The City of Compassion is both the Capital of Britannia and Headquarters of the True Britannian Armies.

    (True Britannian Forces defending Castle Britannia in times of War)

    The defense and protection of Britain is a prime directive of the military forces. All available funds are sent directly to the capital to ensure its security. Funds are dispersed to other cities only when Britain is secure and has adequate finances in its treasury for its defense. Tithe rates for the True Britannian Forces are set directly in accordance with the financial stability of the capital.

    When defending Britain, guards are placed at all the city’s major access points
    to defend against invading armies and provide citizens safe and secure town to live and conduct business. If the city falls under siege, citizens take shelter in Castle Britannia and the guards are pulled back in defense. Many of the soldiers are familiar with the old war adage that states, “As goes Britain, so go the True Britannians”.

    Trinsic: The City of Honor is home to the Paladins of Britann and the gateway to the island of Magincia. In times of war, Trinsic is the only city that stands in the way of armies invading from the south as well as the Magincia ruins. An enemy army that controls Trinsic can completely cutoff the southern stretches of Britannia from the rest of the Kingdom. Trinsic’s strategic geographic location was evidenced when the Lady Minax, chose the City as her first point of attack in her attempted conquest of Felucca. If not for Lord Dupre and his initial Feluccan army that would later become known as the True Britannians, the City of Honor might still be in the hands of the Dark Temptress.

    (True Britannian Forces defending Castle Britannia in times of War)

    When defending Trinsic, military units are place at all major Access points leading into the city. Guards are stationed both on the ground and on Trinsic’s great sandstone walls. The gate to Magincia is of particular concern as invading forces can by pass the protective walls and attack the city from within. Thus the security of the Magincia gate is of the highest priority and in times of war, citizens will find a full regiment stationed at the gate.
