We have had novenas, prayers, and other religious concerns said for Our Imperial Torturer. We had dispatched a team of chirurgeons to care for her, although We haven't heard anything from them as yet. Her wages were doubled as her incident has caused her to create new techniques to apply in her job for Us.

My people! We must apologize for not posting earlier, but We had to have a chirurgeon open Our Imperial Skull and let an evil spirit out. Therefore, We were under the chirurgeon's care for some time and are only now regaining some of Our former vim and vigor. We wish to thank all who offered sacrifices for Our recovery and We are certain you will be repaid tenfold or morefold. If you were among the very, very few who did not make such sacrifices We assure you that you will be repaid a hundredfold.

Your Imperial Torturer has been lying low of late. An unfortunate accident while on holiday has resulted in a badly broken right arm (yes, I'm right handed) and bruising in places I didn't even know I had including a spectacular black eye, caused by my sunglasses digging into my cheek when I fell.

But so far, so good - nothing has fallen off.

If any miscreants annoy me, I shall whack them with my plaster....carefully so as not to damage me further.

That was beautifully said, Sire. Our Late Imperial Game Warden was a unique one-of-a-kind Warden who was beloved by all, even as he nabbed the odd poacher or two (some of whom were, it must be admitted, extremely odd).

His memory shall be forever enshrined, as per Your kind wishes.

We must, as part of Our duty, inform all of Our subjects of the death of Our Imperial Game Warden. His post will be difficult to fill but We will appoint another in due course.

We knew he was much loved the poachers in Our forests and streams. We know that often miscreants would be overlooked as such was the only occupation for which they was qualified. And Our honor accepted these losses as inevitable. We did on occasion question Our Imperial Game Warden about his own well-stocked larder. We once visited his office as he was butchering what seemed to be a magnificent stag from Our forests but he convinced Us that it was “a mangy old cow that was hit by a wagon hauling rock” to a rock concert. When We questioned the magnificent set of antler he explained that the were “sheds” that the old cow got stuck on her head somehow. When we looked skeptical he gave Us a flagon of excellent mead and while We were chatting about the state of Our lands, coyotes silently took away the carcass of the mangy old cow.

He shall be missed. And We now institute 90 das of mourning, a 21 gun salute to be fired at dawn and sunset each day during the period of mourning (using blank, not live ammunition), the Empire's flags to be flown at one-quarter staff, full breakfasts for all prisoners during te days of mourning, a tomb to be carved from a granite boulder of the greatest height and width, mourning parades ever day during the sacred period, all work to cease whilst we mourn together, a Te Deum to be sung in the cathedral daily in perpetuity, and all children to be well mannered and helpful forever.

These are Our wishes, and so will be carried out exactly by Our subjects.

Emperor Rapparee, Imperious Rex.            Sealed With Our Tears

My People! Today was the birthday of Our beloved consort. We shan't tell her age as that might cause her dismay, but We are approved to state that she is younger than the mountains. We had a very nice dejeuner at which some excellent wine was served. Certain louts who couldn't keep their voices down have been dealt with by Our guards and We doubt that they will again do such a thing.

To celebrate this auspicious occasion We have determined that this day shall be tax exempt except for those in the Imperial oubliette, who shall have the taxes they may owe doubled unless it would cause hardship for their immediate family. We are just but merciful.

Yes, Imperial Torturer, there is an oubliette. It is, however, always flooded and so when the stone (called the "stopper" or "plug") is in place it becomes a somewhat damp place to stay (or so We are told). We doubt that you would like it there, as the guards must always wear hip boots or wet suits. There is also a plethora of mold.

We find it unnecessary to go door to door begging for treats. However, We allow Our subjects to do as they will as long as they do not harm others or, hopefully, themselves. Thus, you may do as you please regarding Hallowe'en or whatever you wish to call it as long as you don't do damage to yourself or others. Also, We do ask that you keep the damage to property to a minimum. If you wish to be truly frightened We permit the Imperial Torturer to give you the "special tour" of the dungeons, the oubliette, and other little nooks and crannies of which she might be aware.
