A messenger arrives at Isawda's door knocking politely and handing him a letter bearing the seal of the Arcane Sanctum.
Cracking open the letter is from the ArchMage and reads as follows:
Please, let it be known that the stipend comes from King Ulric directly. His Majesty has final word on the office of Sherriff within Parson's Breach. The Magistrate in no way should be involved in payments to your office as this could be seen as a conflict of interest at best, and outright Bribery at worst. The payments to your office will come directly from the King's coffers through the Quartermaster at Parson's Breach.
The Magistrate's duty is to dispense final judgement upon criminals for serious crimes. Any petty crimes requiring fines or minimal time served in the stocks is up to your wisdom, as the King trusts your judgement, please just let the Magistrate know the events leading up to your judgement in punishment. Consult with the Magistrate if you deem it necessary or the crime requires a more severe punishment such as a lengthy stay in the stocks, Death or worse.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me, or if you can arrange and audience, with King Ulric himself. The safety of the Breach is paramount to the both of us and your duties will only grow as the Breach does.
ArchMage of Calandonia
Steward of Calandonia
