Background: Safely nestled in a natural harbor, Lavalette is the first settlement built by the Royal New Terra Company (RNTC). Situated with an enclosed harbor to the north, steep mountains to the east, and a large lake to the south, Lavalette is surrounded by natural defenses. Lavalette is named after the Intendant General des Finances d'Oleon, Pierre Lavalette Genaro, Duc de Vele. Most of the population is Oleanders, but foreigners are not uncommon.

Relatively undeveloped, many experts believe the settlement can boast large shipyards as well as huge plantations for the recently discovered peppercorn plant. Despite the rumors, the RNTC has remained relatively quiet regarding the settlement's potential and long-term plans.

Current Plans:

As of now, only the plans to make Lavalette a town have been released to the public. The town is small, mostly divided into a grid pattern, and surrounded by basic fortifications. On a small peninsula overlooking the bay, a fort is planned.

Most of the initial buildings are expected to be very simple. Nothing too ornate, with many buildings built out of local materials in a quick manner. Most initial structures will be residences and commerce and artisan properties designed to help support initial settlers as well as pave the way for large expansion in the future. Examples would likely include lumber yards, quarries and stone masons, brick factories, stucco and plaster producers, to support construction as well as bakers, blacksmiths, and merchants selling basic necessities to keep the settlement well fed and functioning.

To representatives of His Royal Majesty, King Philip I, Lavalette

July 618, King's Harbour

It has come to our attention that a ship of the Royal Navy, the corvette HMS Badger, has been brought into Lavalette as a prize to a fleet of notorious pirates. We warn you that the vessels (mentioned below) have been involved in several instances of documented piracy against merchant shipping in the Brick Seas, and that the HMS Badger was taking in its efforts to keep the sea lanes safe for all nations.

You will hereby find enclosed our official request to have the HMS Badger seized and returned to the Royal Navy. We have no doubts that neither his Royal Majesty King Philip I, nor the honourable RNTC, wishes to see Olean ports harbouring pirates. We are willing to compensate you any reasonable expenses you may have in seizing the HMS Badger and her crew. Should additional crew be needed to man her, we will send a vessel under a flag of truce from Cocovia to retrieve her.

And while Corrington has no wish to interfere with internal Olean politics, I implore you to consider the nefarious acts of piracy committed by the Black Flag fleet now harboured under the guns of Lavalette, and the danger it poses to all peaceful shipping of the Brick Seas.

Awaiting your response,

Rear-admiral Fletcher

Commander-in-chief, Royal Terra Novan Navy

Pirate vessels:

Killer Frog

Morning Fog

Warped Wood

To Her Most Corrish Majesty's Officer, Rear-Admiral Fletcher. Greetings. 

Your concerns and requests have been sent to the appropriate authorities. I will inform you as soon as any decision is reached. Until then, I would ask that you reach out to the aggressors and see if an arraignment can be reached without the need to involve Oleon or the RNTC.

Major Wolfgang Hochstetter
