The Kingdom of Valyria’s foreign affairs are managed under its Chancery, which organizes and maintains all diplomatic relations under its chief, the Lord Chancellor of Valyria.
In administrating its foreign affairs, the Kingdom of Valyria assigns qualified yeomen of its court to act as envoys. These envoys are charged with diplomatic missions to liaise with specific foreign states and their representatives. Envoys of the Valyrian Royal Court who frequently interact with specific foreign governments and develop a rapport with them may be offered permanent positions as “ambassadors” to those respective governments.
The Embassy of Valyria Discord (server https://discord.gg/UzrWzW ) is a place of public presence where the Chronicles of Elyria and Angelica communities may congregate. Official announcements of the Royal Court of Valyria will be made in this server for dissemination.
( Currently, until a Lord Chancellor is appointed, the administration of Valyrian Foreign Affairs is being handled by a “Grand Ambassador”, who can be contacted in the Valyrian Embassy Discord server. )
The Embassy of Valyria also facilitates official matters such as the reception of foreign diplomats, reception of offers of homage and fealty from new vassals, and the immigration and registration of subjects of the Crown of Valyria.
If you are a diplomat, herald, or emissary of a foreign government seeking audience with the Valyrian Royal Court, your embassy will be received by the appropriate Valyrian officials after posting in our Embassy of Valyria Discord Channel https://discord.gg/UzrWzW , #reception-hall.
