I the crown Prince Ptah of the Empire of Stygia son of Neverlin of House Jade Asp make the following Proclamation to all Hyboria :
Stygian forces have secured Tortage and with it all trade to Khemi.
We are imposing tariffs on all trade entering Stygia to balance the preposterous imbalance advocated by the Dog King Conan who is barely qualified to negotiate with his Cimmerian livestock.
If our taxes are not paid your ships will sink! Making Stygia Great Again!
Prince Ptah of House Jade Asp ~Empire of Stygia
