Ask The Duke
Question from Intaglia:
How can you consider yourself a noble when you treat women like chattel?
Answer from Duke Vahn:
I have never enslaved a woman. I believe that my judicious use of slavery as a punishment for men is well within any civilized definition of noble. As to my treatment of females who have become enslaved through no action on my part: I cannot help but wonder how giving a girl an excellent home where she is well fed and protected could be construed as ignoble. To expect the girl to do chores and conform to the standards of my house in return is only fair and reasonable, unless one holds to the notion that females are naught but idle trophies.
In order to ask a question of the duke, you must be someone who lives in the duke’s world and has no knowledge of Earth. Questions which do not conform to the setting will be discarded. (Example: You cannot ask anything about computers or use knowledge gained from reading my books to read my character's mind.) So create an Itzi or an Elva and ask away.
