State Ministry: the city services.

Genesis, the god of timeto Everyone

Over the years the State Ministry's core role has been somewhat taken over

by the Trade Ministry (despite the Trade Ministry being, in effect, a

part of the Ministry of State). In light of this and for various reasons,

I've reactivated the civic services in a new form, with a new \"look and

feel\". Some may remember the old city guards from years back. Anyway:

the State Ministry is now responsible for the CIVIC SERVICES and these

cover a variety of useful city (and guild and sphere-of-influence)

benefits. In many cases the State Ministry will work with another Ministry

to decide how the service works exactly (e.g. 'police' sees State and

Justice work together).

So, for those who're involved in the State Ministry or city government,

check out HELP STATE and HELP SERVICES for further info. This info is

available to everybody. If you hold rank in your city or town, type

SERVICES on its own for a list of civic services and - if you are in

the State Ministry or have high enough rank, SERVICES followed by a service

name for detailed info on that facility. I suspect many cities will find

some of the services invaluable.
