Embassy Scribe / Schreiber
Scribes are an integral part of the Blackwood and Realms Embassy in Mythodea. With various diplomatic letters and documents, commercial agreements, bills, finance documents and other letters being written sent and stored regularly, the need for able-bodied scribes is great. Scribes can serve multiple roles depending on the needs of the embassy but are not required to perform any function outside of the writing and logging function should they not desire the added responsibility. Scribes are paid by contract. Master Scribe’s Apprentice Needed!
Die Schreiber sind ein integraler Bestandteil der Botschaft von Blackwood und den Reichen in Mythodea. Da verschiedene diplomatische Briefe und Dokumente, Handelsvereinbarungen, Rechnungen, Finanzdokumente und andere Briefe regelmäßig verschickt und aufbewahrt werden, ist der Bedarf an körperlich gesunden Schreibern groß. Schreiber können je nach den Bedürfnissen der Botschaft mehrere Aufgaben erfüllen, müssen aber keine Funktion außerhalb der Schreib- und Protokollfunktion ausüben, wenn sie die zusätzliche Verantwortung nicht wünschen. Die Schreiber werden vertraglich bezahlt. Meisterschreiber-Lehrling benötigt!
Mercenaries / Söldner
Mercenaries are important to the defense of embassy interests. Providing the money is right, many can be under the employ of the embassy at any given time. Typically a mercenary contract requires that the mercenary wears the East Blackwood sigil when serving. Mercenaries join the Embassy Guard unless special acceptions are made.
Söldner sind wichtig für die Verteidigung von Botschaftsinteressen. Wenn das Geld stimmt, können viele von ihnen jederzeit in den Dienst der Botschaft gestellt werden. Normalerweise verlangt ein Söldnervertrag, dass der Söldner das Ost Blackwood-Siegel trägt, wenn er dient. Söldner schließen sich der Botschaftswache an, es sei denn, es werden besondere Vereinbarungen getroffen
