Malarbor says: Well, puny mortals, Malarbor has had a fine treat today. The first whole Voortrekker that I've had to devour in many a year. So long Paul Duit, as my roots burrowed into your flesh and rended you limb from limb, I felt as if our acquaintance was so fleeting that I hardly knew ye.

Talking to the Voortrekkers, did you know that the Kaiser's advisers, in a fit of demented generosity and a complete lack of strategic nous had offered to alienate the western portion of his patrimony to permit the recreation of a Batavian nation in the form of a condominium jointly administered with the Voortrekker government? Or that after twelve years (AN) of demonstrating good neighbourliness they would ceded the territory outright in return for scant territorial compensation in the lands stolen by the Voortrekkers from the Siyacha in central Benacia?

Happily for the Imperium, the insane generosity of the Imperial Advisory Council was matched only by the insane arrogance of the Voortrekkers presently ensconced in the Jing enclave of King's Worth. Where we saw prudent safeguards for the condominium, a joint garrison, a mechanism for arbitration, a pledge of good will, peaceful intent, and neutrality, they saw only unwarranted constraints upon their sovereignty. Rather than regain ancestral lands and their cultural patrimony, the Voortrekker community now proposes to uproot to the irradiated hell that is Eura.

Malarbor hopes that the Euran Death Worms enjoy their meals as much as he did.

On a partially related note, have you ever noticed how poultry farmers taste like chicken whilst cattle ranchers seldom taste of beef? Weird, huh?

Paul Duit was still somewhat bewildered from the noise of the capital of the Shirerithians. He was the only high placed military officer of the Vrije Weermacht who had ever set foot out of western Benacia. In his younger years he had visited Traiectum, which Batavian descendant simply kept calling Macoeur, with his parents to sell some surpluses from the harvest of that year. At a later age he had visited 's Koningenwaarde, which had also been renamed under the reign of its new masters, to gather support for funding the establishment of the Vrijmacht, the military force of the Vrystaat.

Nothing of all that, however, had prepared him for Shirekeep. The city was noisy and crowded. It held cultures and races which Paul had only seen in picture books and which he - wouldn't he have seen them with his own eyes - considered fairy tales. The city itself had a smell over it: not like the smell of flowers he was used to, but the smell of sewers. Especially when temperature rose, the smell spread through the corners of this metropolis.

Nonetheless, the simple Transbatavian wasn't here to play tourist, nor to enjoy the hundreds of specialties the city had to offer. He was here to meet the (so-called) honorable gentlemen of the foreign office. The guards standing in front of the gate weren't looking all to keen to help him get in, so Paul was lost in what he had to do, now he had reached the building.

As he stood there he attracted the attention from a tourist claiming to originate from Xang Muang.

"Ah, you're the famous diplomat visiting the minister yes? I have never been in the Ministry of Exterior but I would like to visit it and meet these high-ranked people. Can I come with you as your assistant?"

Sadly the tourist was arrested for violating the terms of his visa by touting for work. Even more regrettably, the hapless foreigner slipped and impaled himself on the bayonet of the Sentinel standing watch outside of the Ministry building.

Herr Duit was ushered away by his minders, assigned from the Vigiles Arcani and the Imperial Marshals, to a holding facility from whence his narrative will resume in due course.

Herr Duit was subsequently held in detention for fourteen months before he was given the choice of becoming His Majesty's Loyal Subject or of returning to the Green from whence he came.
