Envoys are diplomatic ministers in the employ of the Royal Court, working directly for Chancery in its foreign policy role. An envoy is a who has taken and passed the standard which assesses civil servants. Envoys will be hired for their diplomatic skill and temperament, and are selected to meet with foreign entities in game and through Discord channels by the Lord Diplomat. An envoy who is frequently deployed to a certain location and develops a good rapport with his hosts may be selected to become an ambassador.
The Chancery of Valyria will maintain a register of hired ministers with the specific role of envoy, but may also at times enlist other officials in royal government to act under the official capacity of Envoy of the Royal Court when they are specifically qualified to relate to the foreign entity in question.
