Services In Depth
Financial Services: The Acadian Ministry provides a place for mages to safely store their wealth without it being seized. Additionally, it offers investment and lending programs, similarly to any other financial service. The treasury, as it's called, provides extended benefits and reduced interest fees to mages who perform good deeds for other mages - incentivizing positive action and mutually, the growth of Acadia's relevance. At present, Alistair manages this on an individual basis, not yet drafting a long-term formula for such transactions.
Gardening: The Ministry is currently seeking to expand its gardens, growing herbs, reagents and alchemical ingredients. Currently, however, the role is not fulfilled by any employees.
Housing Development and Taxes: The Ministry contracts organizations to build homes in the surrounding area at a reduced price; Alistair typically utilizes his Revenants to gather materials for housing, which allows the Ministry to make a profit due to its free undead laborers. Once people move into Acadian-built homes, Alistair names them citizens of the fledgling governing body, and taxes their wages.
Magical Training: The Ministry provides direct magical instructions to other mages, with comparatively low costs . . . though only, presently, in the fields of Abrogation, Rupturing, Transmutation and Necromancy.
