The Takarians are a superstitious race governed by a system of wealthy ruling barons. They are not culturally unu-sual in any way, and are fond of legend and prophecy. If any contact or negotiations are to be made, it must be in the very final need - for protection, against any foreign power that may seek to exploit them.
The Treasuries of the Baron are vaults of hoarded wealth garnered from trade and tribute over many years. They will be a useful fund to assist the Takarians in developing their society in agriculture, the economy, and providing many common services and utilities, securing their long term future.
