The Ministries are a series of different jobs that are open to all members. Most ministry jobs are designed so that they can be occupied alongside another job or profession. Furthermore, the roles are designed to complement our guilds and consequently, certain ministries may appeal more to members of certain guilds.

Coin

The Ministry of Coin exists primarily to collect tax, but also to work with other departments to ensure adequate funding of the county. Roles and responsibilities include: Coordinating or partaking in tax collection, helping to decide tax rates, coordinating payment, coordinating funding and deciding investments. This role may end up being the most intensive of all ministries as all members including the minister may be required to travel often.

Defence

The Ministry of Defence exists as a separate institution to our military. The role of the Ministry of Defence is to prepare the county in case of the attack in regards to non-military personal and settlements. The Ministry of Defence will ensure that settlements are assigning ample guards, whether settlements require investment from taxes in their defences and regulate the training of civilians who are not attached to a military unit. Candidates for all roles may be military personnel provided it does not interfere with their duties. Bodyguards are not expected to be required as all members of the Ministry of Defence are required to be skilled combatants and will not be carrying large amounts of valuable items. In addition to all this, members of this ministry may assist with training of army recruits. We expect to have Trainers in varying weapon styles and the role of trainer may be done in conjunction with any other role.

Construction

The Ministry of Construction not only oversee the building of County funded structure, they also decide what should be constructed and where improvements made with tax money should be constructed. While Mayors are expected to continuously improve their settlements, as a county, we will require new defences, settlements and structures to be built. Furthermore if possible we will help mayors to improve their own settlements. A huge part of this role in working with existing guilds and crafters as we aim to utilise these as opposed to constantly paying high numbers of builders. The Ministry of Construction also receives reports on repairs and may participate in the repairs themselves.

Transport

The Ministry of Transport is responsible for overseeing hired or purchased transport and road construction. While many people may wish to purchase their own animals for animal-powered transport, yet lack the space or don’t want to worry about the upkeep and feeding of those animals. Some citizens may also prefer to pay for transport or hire transportation animals. The Ministry of Transport will coordinate all of these, and additionally make sure that citizens in all reaches of the county have access to transportation. The Minister of Transport will also inform the Minister of Construction when new roads are required. Another large responsibility of the Minister of Transport is to work in tandem with other ministries to either provide transport of goods or other ministries with the means to do so. Larger transport operations, whether carrying individuals or goods will require guarded so we will also be recruiting mercenaries and guards. The Ministry of Transport will also be responsible for the transport of large sums of taxes on occasions and will do this in conjunction with tax collectors.

Environment

The Ministry of the Environment makes sure that our current situation and actions are sustainable. As we will require large amounts of logging and hunting, it makes sense that we have to manage this and make sure that we don’t run out of resources. The Minister of the Environment controls: Hunting permits, Logging Permits, Logging Rotation, Hunting Rotation and identification of poachers. As we will rotate allowed areas for hunting and logging, this will be determined by the Minister of the Environment. The Ministry of the Environment is also responsible for determining who hunts in specific areas and identifying and killing poachers.

The Ministry of the Occult deals with all magical or paranormal items or events. This Ministry works with other governmental agencies to locate and study magical artifacts. In addition to this, they find and support any individuals who are found to possess talents. While many may turn away or try to kill talent users, we aim to support them via this ministry. Members of this ministry should attempt to avoid diplomatic repercussions, but at the same time, certain aspects of this ministry may require confrontation. While we do expect this Ministry to secure magical artifacts on their own, many may be heavily guarded or dangerous, so support from the Shadow Corps and military will be provided when required. The Minister of the Occult will also help deal with magic-related crises such as The Long Night.
