Congratulations on winning your new lands and entering the realm of politics and kingdom building. I will offer you these words of wisdom from the sage minds of Brevoy:
“Politics is a trade where no one gets out alive” -old Brevic saying meaning that once you start, it never stops.
“Nature abhors a vacuum.” – Grozni Druidic saying meaning that places in an ecosystem don’t stay empty for long.
“You have what you hold” -The first River Freedom. The Stolen Lands have been uncivilized for hundreds of years because of the failure to heed this “law”. If you leave any of your power laying around or fail to protect something you value, someone will notice and take action.
