After a long journey from Genoa, I finally arrived at the imperial palace.
When the guards asked me who I was, I answered:


i am Cipro from La Spezia, I'm here to meet the Imperial Chancellor Anthonis Philippe Nicolas de Ligne Borgia

Anthonis walked into the reception area, since he heard of a new arrival.

So please if you do not mind, our vice-chancellor Puzzler will talk to you, while I attent to another candidate.

Anthonis smiled and give him a small bow...

After he was informed by a guard about a new candidate who just arrived at the Palace, Augustus took some papers and documents from his desk and went downstairs to meet him in the Hall.

Welcome to Strasbourg, ser. My name's Augustus Caesar Malaspina, Imperial Vice-Chancellor. It's always a pleasure to meet new people willing to join our great Empire. Please, follow me into my office so that we can talk without any trouble.

Then, whereas they were going into the office, Augustus quietly asked to a servant for some good wine from the cellar for his guest.

Now, please, take a seat. A servant is coming for us with a bottle of wine, I hope you're not that thirsty!

He smiled

Let's start with some easy but very important questions.

Tell me something about yourself, for instance if you have already had some experiences in diplomacy matters, the languages you can speak and, most importantly, the reason why you want to join us.

My name is Cipro, it's a pleasure to meet you. And I followed him into his office.

I would accept with pleasure a glass of wine, I am italian as you are and I can't say No to a glass of good wine. I said smiling too.

So, I'll start talking about myself. I'm still young but for this reason I'm very willing to be useful and to have something to do. Furthermore, I have always liked the art of diplomacy, the ability of good speaking and I do want to be useful to the empire.
I have no previous experience in diplomacy, but I have a very moderate attitude, even though I know when it's time to be tough and how to convince other people.
My mother tongue is italian and I am very fluent in english and spanish. Moreover I know a bit of french.
I would like to join the imperial diplomacy because I really want to improve my skills and I would be honoured to serve the emperor and the empire.

Augustus heard those words carefully and when he ended his answer, he replied:

I can see a little bit of myself in you, I hope it's a good thing!

Since you are very young and with very little experience in diplomacy I'm going to show you a parchment about the Statute of the Imperial Chancellery. Read it carefully, especially the part regarding the obligations of an Ambassador, and ask me any question if you need some clarification. Then, confirm us that you accept everything written there.

And, please, we also need your proof of baptism.


Then, he put on his desk the parchment.

Quote :

I took the chart the Vice chancellor gave me and read it carefully.

I fulfill all the requirements, here my certificate of baptism.
I have read the obligations and I have understood them, for now I don't have further questions.


And I gave to him my certificate of baptism.

He read the certificate and then put it in the file.

Good. I have another question, and I would say that this is probably a crucial one, therefore think about your answer.

As you can probably imagine, being an Ambassador is mainly a work of words: letters are just words, treaties are just made of words too. But this also means that we need someone else willing to hear us on the other side, and this is not always the case.

You said you've a very moderate behaviour and you love the art of "good-speaking". How would you deal with a counterpart who is not active at all... a counterpart that doesn't even reply back to what you write to them. Be aware that I'm not talking about your personal reaction, but about the way you would handle that situation when in Strasbourg there is someone who waits for your news about that Embassy.

I know this is not an easy question, but this is the greatest issue that we face every day (and when I say "every" I really mean it). You need to be prepared to that, thus I want to know the "what would you do, if..." answer to this problem. Of course, there is no actual "good" or "bad" answer but try hard to give me a reasonable one.

I thought a little bit and then I answered

If my counterpart didn't respond me, firstly I would write directly to him [ooc: a pm in game]. If I kept on not getting any answer, I would write to their superior, obviously in a diplomatic way, to have my answer.

I smiled. That is what I would have done, I hope it was right.

All right, I will report everything back to the Chancellor, but before that in case you were admitted, is there some particular Embassy that you're interested in or that you would rather avoid?

Of course, any explanation would be poistively read, nontheless I can only guarantee that your preferences will be considered and evaluated by the Chancellor.

The Vice-Chancellor came back into the room where he left his guest and with a smile on his face , he said:

I'm glad to announce you that, after a bit of talks, we've accepted your application and that you are going to, from now on, represent the SRING both outside and within our Empire with your words and behaviour.

You've been assigned to the Embassy in Aragon, a Spanish Kingdom as you asked. The public announcement is going to be published as soon as possible. Please, get used to your new office and ask for any question or doubt you may have in your work.

Welcome into the Chancellery, Your Excellency!

Anthonis now had time to meet the new Ambassador as well so he stepped into the room and bowed.

Congratulations your Excellency, please here you will find the keys to your new office. Vice-Chancellor Augustus will help you get settled. Welcome.
