To: His Imperial Majesty Emhyr var Emreis, Emperor of Nilfgaard
Since the time of my last report, remarkably swift progress has been made and sentiment in the the city has crystallized. If anyone previously believed the ongoing war did not concern the free city, not a single resident now doubts the further course of the conflict will be determined within its walls. Our agents have confirmed earlier reports contending that King Radovid has important plans for Novigrad, and lately we have observed an increase in his agents' activity as well as the spread of propaganda. His prime objective seems to be seizure of the wealthy held by the Church of the Eternal Fire. Yet though Hierarch Hemmelfart officially rules the city, true power is in the hands of local crime lords. I recommend the emperor's agents focus further activity in that direction.
Henry var Attre
by decree of His Imperial Majesty
Ambassador of the Empire of Nilfgaard in the Free City of Novigrad
