    Brief Description:
    Ravnitz is located in the northeast corner of the empire, in the Viscounty of Eszertrikvegn, in the County of Chalyert, in the (Formerly Electoral) Archduchy of Eszerthagn–the archduke having been elevated to Emporer in Adomru, Year 372 and transferring the Electoral dignity elsewhere. The barony has a long and distinguished history within the empire… which is something of a mixed blessing, as its best lands have been worked for centuries with little opportunity to renew themselves. Nevertheless, it is one of the empire’s premier producers of turnips, parsnips, and catnip (along with some more marketable herbs), is blessed with good drainage, and has working quarries of stone and lime, as well as unexploited surface deposits of both; it is known that there is tin deep within its hills as well. A greater than average scattering of lesser aristocracy helps provide extra income and, perhaps more importantly, provides a good portion of the barony’s military needs, keeping costs down.

    Helena, your chamberlain, reports on behalf of your gutless seneschal: “Excellency, we are experiencing some difficulties among the peasantry. They seem to believe there has been an ill omen… something about a two-headed calf, or some such superstitious nonsense. At any rate, we should consider what we might do to provide them reassurance. Let us hope their attitude does not spread to our neighbors and cause them to distrust the goods of our realm.”

    On the plus side, sellers of charms and wards report doing brisk business.…

    To reaffirm the barony's dedication to the Earth Mother, Baron Alecsander orders that the small church in Szilidro be expanded hoping that it will counteract any bad omens the peasantry believes occurred.

    Due to a number of Ravnitzian troops serving in the Archduke of Eszerthagn's army, Baron Alecsander orders a city wall to be built around the town of Szilidro and for the baronial keep to be expanded to a Castle to better defend his and his own.

    It takes many wolves to defy a lion. Ravens feed on the kills of both.

    Many shall seek favor with the Panther, but he has leapt too soon: the Swan eludes him. In constance is reward.

    Preparations for Izsac's wedding and the subsequent transfer of the Barony are progressing as expected.
