An Open Letter to Prefect Tiberius Serenius Valdarus of Valdar, Lord of Hamatar
I'm writing to clarify some points regarding the beastman population of the new domain of Hamatar. Please let it be known that many within the Skull Coalition - particularly the remaining elves who lost their family and fortune when they were crushed in the Elfwood - would rather see the eradication of the entire goblin population than the mercy we showed them.
Further, there are members of the Skull Coalition who refuse to fight alongside goblins. In my estimation, it is unwise to arm demon-spawn. Make sure that your current beastman soldiers are posted strictly for defense and police action, and any future recruitment should be from human settlements only. To help toward this end, I once again give you permission to recruit throughout my domain and those of my vassals. I urge all the other members of the Skull Coalition to do the same.
We allowed these beings to live only because we have taken pity on them and they are of value to us as workmen. They live as prisoners, and not as citizens. Unlike us, they have no qualms about genocide. At any time, they will take you by the throat and kill you. Be sure not to fall into complacency. If you have even the slightest concern, the Dwarves of Badaxe Hold would be at Hamatar's door culling its population of demon-spawn and making Baldgarth a safer place for the mortal races.
