POLITICAL OPTION: Each chapter should have
a member of the Diplomatic Corps. These members have the title of
Attache and are the primary contact between the Empire and other
clubs and therefore must be a member of RSE, Inc. An Attache's
duties are to contact other fan clubs and keep the Embassy informed
of their activities.
They have power to develop casual alliances and inform various
chapters of role-playing challenges made by and to other local
clubs. They must keep in mind at all times that these contacts are
friendly and any challenges are in fun. Attaches are approved by the
Attaches report to Ambassadors at an Embassy, a fictitious
location that serves a real purpose. The Ambassadors are accountable
to the Judicial Praetor.
The Romulan Diplomatic Corps can be entered by anyone as a
primary or secondary position for military and civilian members.
For more information about the Romulan Diplomatic Corps,
contact Judicial Praetor Teelis t'Hwersuil.
