[This message is posted up all over Barovia and sent to all of its administrator during the night of 15th...]

Quote

LET ALL OF BAROVIA AND THOSE WITHIN HER BORDERS NOW HEAR THIS

With heavy heart and many tears I must tell you people that Count Strahd, eleventh of this name, has passed away
in his sleep. With a great purpose and shakey legs I now must assume the regency of this great land I am so unworthy
of as we look over the genealogies of the great von Zarovich family.

For the next three days let there be public mourning but know that upon that third day I shall return to you with your next master.

Long may their reign be!



VASILI VAN HOLTZ
REGENT OF BAROVIA

[These pamphlets make their way to every city in Barovia and are sung loudly out by criers the realm over...]

Quote
LET ALL WHO LOVE BAROVIA AND PEACE IN THE WORLD

BEHOLD THESE WORDS OF YOUR GREAT PROTECTOR AND HONORABLE MONARCH


Hail to you my great and noble people, my people who have suffered for so long under the rule
of petty and disgusting tyrants! Know this, my people, that I, Lyssa am not like my vain and wicked
predecessors. I have always had the the people in my heart in all that I did before, and this shall not change.

I intend to restore this land to greatness, build and reform the terrible and cruel edicts that have over time
strangled our and stagnated our home. This great reformation shall begin with this edict:

From this day forward, I demand of you my people, my Burgomasters, and boyars by the end of this year
to destroy all depictions of my predecessors that have taken the namesake of Strahd for they were all petty,
cruel, and corrupting forces in the land and with my rise we shall never need to dwell on those men for I
will restore what they had destroyed.


From here, I shall release from my services the Chancellor van Holtz whose family have dutifully served all
of the von Zarovich clan since the reign of Barov. He will be given a annual stipend of five thousand wolf
fang and lands in the Balinoks, the other great protector of our our land and people.

I do this because I will need no Chancellors, nor advisors, to do what must be done. I shall bring peace
and love to Barovia with my own hand, with no need for others to do what is my own work.

Bear with my people in these coming days and I shall lead you into an age of prosperity and joy.


PEACE UPON ALL BAROVIA,
COUNTESS LYSSA VON ZAROVICH
PROTECTOR OF ALL BAROVIANS

A PROCLAMATION FROM HER EXCELLENCE, LYSSA, COUNTESS OF BAROVIA

BE IT KNOWN BY ALL SERFS AND SUBJECTS of this Our domain of Barovia, the seventh day of Ianuarie, in the year 771 of the Barovian Calendar, that WE COUNTESS LYSSA VON ZAROVICH hereby ORDER AND DEEM that the town of ZEIDENBURG, in that part of Our domains which was once subject to the despised wretch Duke Nharov Gundar, is no longer under the weak and feeble rule of her servant JACENTY GIRGHIU. This criminal has been imprisoned pending his trial for TREASON and MISRULE in his office as Our vassal. We therefore ANNOUNCE AND PROCLAIM that Our loyal servant AMALIA SZATHMARI is hereby raised to the office of BURGOMISTRESS OF ZEIDENBURG and BOYARINYA OF THE WESTERN PROVINCE.

WE TAKE THIS ACTION not out of CRUELTY or SPITE but out of LOVE for those of Our people who once suffered as SLAVES of the HATED GUNDAR, and believe that by RAISING A BURGOMISTRESS from among THEIR KIND they will finally take THEIR NOBLE PLACE as SUBJECTS and LOYAL SERVANTS of Our throne. Let all of those others who claim the rank of BURGOMASTER and BOYAR render unto our BURGOMISTRESS AMALIA SZATHMARI all AID and SUCCOR that she might require as she ascends her throne and takes up her new responsibilities as OUR SERVANT and REPRESENTATIVE in the western parts of Our domain.

LET ALL OF BAROVIA AND THOSE WITHIN HER BORDERS NOW HEAR THESE WORDS OF YOUR MASTER AND RULER

HIS EXCELLENCY COUNT STRAHD VON ZAROVICH XI



As commanded by His Excellency and complied by his honourable subjects, the traitorous cur known as Sedrik and once holding the alias Hobs, has been apprehended and brought to swift and final justice for his crimes against Barovia.  His grievous violence against those entrusted in the service of His Excellency has been avenged and law has prevailed.

Be it known that while his accomplices have yet to be apprehended, they will know no safety or shelter from His Excellency's purview.

Through the actions of Sudhri Noirloin, this treacherous criminal was brought to justice.   

IN HIS NAME,

VASILI VAN HOLTZ
EMISSARY OF HIS EXCELLENCY
STRAHD VON ZAROVICH XI
