Showdown in the Shadow Lands
Be it known that the bearer of this charter has been charged by the Restov Territory, acting upon the greater good and authority vested within them by the office of Baron Zero, has granted the right of exploration and travel within the wilderness region starting with what is known as The Badlands. The object of your mission is to explore the Sellen river, & such principal stream of it, as, by its course & communication with the waters of the the rumored Great Western Ocean, and to determine if there exists the offer of the most direct & practicable water communication across this continent, for the purposes of commerce. If a water communication cannot be established, the most efficient land route is to be mapped out and explored. The carrier of this charter will be provided with a posse of regulators for the task of striving against banditry, Injuns, monsters and other unlawful behavior to be encountered. The punishment for unrepentant banditry remains, as always, execution by sword or rope. So witnessed on this 24th day of Kisaragiu, the year of our Lord 4860, under the watchful eye of and authority granted by Slade sonur Svergun, The Baron Zero, Sovereign of the Restov Territory.
