Now, even as word circulates about plans to rebuild the ruined township, another major scion of House Mikin - Duke Orell Mikin - finds himself at odds with the Imperial tax office.
Orell Mikin, recently dismissed as trademaster, could find his lands seized by Imperial authorities if he doesn't pay more than 100,000 Kahar Imperials in back taxes and penalties. If he fails to pay his debts, he risks further liens and the possibility of imprisonment beneath Fastheld Keep.
Orell Mikin is hardly alone in facing the wrath of the tax office. Varal Mikin faces a lien on his property and Tyrell Mikin now has a bounty on his head for capture and arrest.
