To all and singular unto whom these presents shall come, Greetings Be it resolved this day, by and for

the Senatorum Imperialis and High Lords of Terra, in the Name of the Immortal God-Emperor of Man that the following shall constitute a Warrant and Letter of Marque, with the force of a Dictate Imperialis. We, acting upon the desires and recommendation of the Senate and Peers of the Imperium, do hereby name the Bearer of this Warrant, Duke Alfredo Vaal of Tregothos, a Rogue Trader, and likewise all his Line and/or designated Heirs, with all the Rights and Privileges thereto, from this date (277643.M37) until the End of Time. The Bearer shall receive all due Rank and Precedence of a Peer of the Imperium, inter alia planetary Governors and Lord Commanders of His Divine and Imperial Majesty's Munitorum, in Liege Simple. The Bearer shall, beyond His Light, speak with His Voice, with authority superseding that of any Rank and Position short of Lord Governor Sub-Sector. They are likewise granted the authority and responsibilities equivalent to a Fleet Commodore, that they may adjudge the disposition of Lawful Prizes taken by Imperial citizens. This Authority is granted in furtherance of an Eternal Charge upon the Bearer; namely that the Bearer shall uphold and further the Pax and Lex Imperialis beyond His Domains. To ensure that this Charge is delivered, the Bearer will deliver astropathic and/or physical copies of His Ship's Log at intervals no greater than fifty (50) years to an Imperial World with regular Lines of Communication to the Adeptus Terra. For the Proper and Orderly line of succession of this Warrant to be maintained, upon the Death or Abdication of the Bearer, the Warrant and its attendant ship(s) will return to the nearest Sector Capital, there to present the Claimant(s) unto a senior Judge of the Arbites so that their Case for Succession may be ratified. May the God-Emperor's Grace be upon the Bearer and all present. AVE IMPERATOR
