General Information:
{At this point in time Astrakhan is Peaceful. Violence is heavily discouraged unless events are involved}
Settled along the river to the Northwest of Mockingbay lays the ever growing town of Astrakhan. This small town is led by the Herenni family from the land of Asrakos. A simple little town with close-knit community members it's perfect for those looking to get away from the hectic bigger towns.


Location of Astrakhan:
Astrakhan is located upriver from Mockingbay. To gain access travel to Mockingbay from Storm's Landing and search for a small boat with light blue sail.



Rules and Laws of Astrakhan:
1. All citizens- be they a patrician or plebeian- must swear fealty and loyalty to the Basileos and his Family. They must also swear equal fealty to the People of the Dominion.

2. All local laws are to be followed, unless they are a direct threat to the safety and liberty of the public good.

3. Every newborn must be shown to the governor's assistants to be logged into the Public Records. Every child must have a respectable name appropriate to their culture. Names may not include numerals or symbols such as a exclamation point or asterisk- unless such a symbol denotes a click or accented pronunciation.

4. Should a war break loose, and if there is a dire need for a defensive militia, all able-bodied men and women should sign up to join the Legion to defend their homes, the Senate and the Imperial Family. Those who follow pacifistic religions or are foreigners need not apply, they may instead, be give non-combative roles, such as a medic or logistician.

5. No violence is to be committed in the Dominion unless it is in self-defense. All crimes are to be reported to the authorities, where a trial shall take place.

6. All religions are to be respected, however- should a religion or cult be found to be dangerous to the public, they will be exiled or even destroyed by the local militia or Legion.
-Followers of Jishrim and Skraag are prohibited from entering the Dominion, due to their chaotic, possibly malignant nature.
-Crusaders- unless passing through peaceably- may not commit acts of violence in the Dominion. Should heretics be found, they are to be turned in to the authorities where they will be questioned and tried. Any organization or mob who attempts to destroy, disrupt or intimidate the Dominion via a crusade will be destroyed and crucified as bandits.


7. Every year, citizens are to pay an Imperial tax, which must be at least 4,000 radiants minimum for every bachelor, and 2,000 radiants for every family. Should there be financial issues, an audience will be opened with the current ruler, who will lower that family or bachelor's tax. (OOCly: This is optional)

8. Granaries are to be built in every city, with enough food for two years. All private and public farms, hunting guilds, fisheries and vineyards are to give at least a quarter of their goods to their local granary, in which case they will receive a stipend appropriate to the type of goods and amount of goods received. Should someone be given an unfair stipend, they are to seek an audience with the acting governor or Imperial Family.

9. No one but the local and national governments (including the military and local militias) may enforce the law and dole out justice. This obviously doesn't include the disciplining of children.
OOC Rules:
1. If you build anything, ask Blorb or Melody- and if they say yes- follow the style (don't hesitate to ask questions!!)
2. If you use the farm- replant and take only what you need. Until we create a shop at spawn- crops will be free.
3. Don't touch the animals, pls :heart:
4. Respect the players- no trolling or disrespect OOCly is tolerated in Astrakhan.
5. Respect the builds- no griefing is tolerated.

6. Please message Melody via Discord for the town Discord.
7. We are currently not taking taxes until we have more active members of the town.

Climate, Flora, and Fauna:
2018-08-11_18.42.23.png

Climate:
Astrakhan is a rather habitable place, with temperate to hot summers (22-24 Celsius, or 75ish for Fahrenheit lovers). During the summer, the numerous plants- be they cultivated or wild- take advantage of the fertile river soil and grow quite large. Seeds and fruits fall into the calm waters of the river, which feed the fish (some of which are in the middle of mating season)- which gives them a boost in the population and an increase in their weight. The fish and aquatic plants feed the many waterfowl, game-birds and other creatures of flight. While grass is sparse, cattle may be herded up and down the river bank so they may graze on the nutrient-rich water-cress, alfalfa and wild barley.
Hunting and gathering, while more difficult than farming, will almost always bring up some sort of bountiful sustenance in the black forests of Astrakhan. Due to their location by rich river soil, the forest grounds are also prime farming grounds- but the Asrakosians have recognized the need for the forest's timber and the delicate biological community it holds, and have therefore planned to continue farming efforts down the river and eventually to flatter grounds in future areas.
The winters are bitterly cold, with temperatures sometimes coming down to at least 8 to -2 degrees Celsius. Snow should be expected! Therefore, Astrakhan's people will bundle up in sheep's wool, bear skins and whatever winter clothes they can craft up. Wood is seasoned and stocked for personal and communal use and there is always a bonfire with communal stew boiling away in a pot.
