    As you know, Qassari trading vessels are among
    the most numerous on the Middle Sea. They are an
    enormous source of wealth in our harbours; consequently,
    continuing friendly relations with Sultan Taaj Abdullah
    in Amharaq is of vital importance. To this end , wear e

    Sultan’s armies in the on going civil war.
    You will assist him against the rebel leader, Nasir Ibn Afdal, who se charisma has w on hi m a significant
    alliance among the southern sultanates and many nomadic tribes. We know the alliance objects to Abdu ll ah’s
    pro-Vetian policies, although I am told the conflict is also
    religious in nature.
    The Sultan ’ s loyalists are largely Mujtam - one of the
    two branches of Alihat religion universal to Qassar -
    while the southerners are predominantly Mahab , the
    other branch.
    May the Lady bless you on your new commission.
    Do not return to our Kingdom with the Crow n’ s
    interests un secured.
