I believe there has been some oversight in the procurement of Oakwoods End by Fatalus. If you were not aware, Thakria has recently been able to bring the majority of Oakwoods End within our SOI. As such, I believe we are warranted first rights to assign or approve any potential leader of those villages within our influence. I do not mean to question the Gods, but it would strike me as questionable at best if we were forced to sit on the sidelines and watch our SOI shrink as Fatalus builds forts and
raises a new army within our boundaries.
Now, if Fatalus' intentions are really to aid the underprivileged citizens of Oakwood's End, then by all means, he may spend his wealth as he pleases. But if as I suspect, his goal is to once again build a defended city, this time on Thakrian soil, our great city can not approve of this. So, I propose either allowing Thakria to match Fatalus's offer and supplant it's own leader, or imposing some ban on the building of fortifications and raising an army within Oakwood's boundaries.
Respectfully yours in Vengeance,
