"It has always been a dream of mine to expore the Orient. Gaining the Emperor's permission to stay here at the borders of his empire is both an honour, and a pleasure."

Lord Richard Northburgh is the ambassador of the Occident, and the player's main guide throughout the game. As the cousin of the deathly-ill Emperor, he plays a major role in the Campaign, teaching the player the very basics of the game in the first chapters and standing alongside them as they face off against Cardinal Lucius in the final Chapter. He also appears in every Continuous game, where he presents the player with the Start and Victory conditions. He offers basic Goods and Items at his port, as well as scrolls to increase your Diplomatic rank with the Orient.

Prestige scrolls[]

Lord Richard Northburgh will sell Prestige Items until the player reaches the highest Diplomatic rank. In the base game, this will cost a total of 3,900 Honour. With the Venice add-on this amount is reduced to 3,050 Honour. Once the maximum Prestige has been reached, the scrolls are replaced with powerful end-game Items like trade taxes and production enhancers.
