    ADVERTISEMENT FROM THE SATRAP OF ARTAPARSA

    -

    The Office of His Highness Satrap Jehangir Artaparsi, the right honourable minister of Foreign Affairs, by the grace of His Majesty the King would like to announce the completion of a new book on the international relations of Persia by the honourable Satrap Jehangir.

    The title of this book is.

    -

    The Great Game: Persia and International Politics

    -

    and it is available for the reasonable price of 3g for a unique insight into the way Persia operates in the international system. Furthermore the Satrap would like to remind the public that his previous book, The Triumvirate of Persia: An Analysis of History and Politics is still available for purchase for a price of 2g for the interested observor of domestic persian politics. If you wish to purchase either book, just send a message to the Satraps office with payment (ooc: pm me and civleader at the same time with your request and your monetary contribution and your book will be sent at the soonest possible time. (ooc: when I get online if you sent your requenst during my absence, or immediately if I am online and get the request)

    ~ spokesperson of the Satrap of Artaparsa

    ---

    ooc: I would use Tambiens publishing service, but he would have to buy my book first (by reducing the price of publication to 2g from the original 5g) before I would consider doing such a thing ;)

    I'll buy this book, but my character is four so I don't think I can read yet.

    Also I would like to request that someone publishes a nice ideology book for the church of Mazda, so lay men like myself may study the practices, history and beliefs of that wonderful establishment.

    ooc: I will write a book on the teachings of the Church of Mazda eventually. I am waiting until I finish exams on the 17th before I work on theological works though (already have one I should get to working on).

    Send a dual message to myself and civleader transferring the monies and I will send it to you (one does require a guarantee of monetary renumeration ;) ), otherwise if you don't I will send you the book once I recieve word from Civleader that money has been transferred (presumably on the basis of your message)

    Send the dual pm then... (transactions require a certain degree of security, ergo I know you have initiated the financial transaction, and in return I send the copy, otherwise I must wait until I get confirmation from Civleader of the transaction before I send the book)

    Following a query by a concerned citizen I am issuing the following legal clarification:
    Arrested Government Officials Decree
    Any holder of a government position arrested on suspicion of criminal activity is suspended until charges are dropped or a verdict is rendered. Any salary earned during their incarceration will be held by the treasury for the duration and released to them on their release or if they are found not guilty. If they are found guilty all salary held by the treasury is forfeit and they will be immediately dismissed and banned from public office in addition to any sentence handed down.

    COMMENTS

    People of Artaparsa, I have looked at the situation of the whole empire, and alas what I see, and what you see also is financial decline the likes of which our city once faced, but on a larger scale. Therefore I have decided to delay with a very heavy heart my personal desire to construct a temple in Artaparsa, a desire shared by many people in this great city, in favour of ordering a market to be constructed in the city once the circus is complete for the greater good of the empire. This will invigorate trade in the city, already strong from our dye plantations and our diamond mines and help bring the empire back into the black thus allowing for further development in the city in collaboration with similar infrastructure in other parts of the empire.

    I would also like to strongly advise other cities to consider similar financial infrastructure, particularly the capital. After the completion of the worker perhaps a market there would be advantageous, followed by the great temple project that has been considered (Angkor Wat) for the glory of Mazda.

    I have recently heard talk that we might be able to cross the Great Ocean with this Optics technology. I suggest that we send out an expedition to take advantage of this! I volunteer to lead it.
