10.4.7 THE MINISTRY OF THE CHANCELLERY

The Ministry of the Chancellery is responsible for looking after shops within a
city. It is responsible for ensuring that shops are being used as shops, for
assessing the value of individual shops, and for setting the annual tax rate
for shops.

The commands associated with the Ministry of the Chancellery are:

CITY SHOPS
   - Lists the adventurer-owned shops in your city.

CITY SHOP INFO <shop name>
   - Shows further info on a shop.

CITY ASSESS <shopname> <shop value in gold>
   - Place a value on the shop, for the purposes of property tax.

CITY TAXRATE SHOPS <rate, in percent>
   - This is the annual rate at which shops will be taxed. Each shop will owe,
     after the new year, (taxrate/100*assessed shop value). Since shops cost
     the city 5000 gold each year, it behoves the city to tax them to make
     up for this. If a shop has been closed for 12 continuous Achaean months,
     then it will cease to be taxed, and cease to cost the city anything.

CITY FORGIVE SHOP TAXES <shop> <optional amount>
   - This command can be used to forgive the taxes on a shop. If you do not
     specify an amount, then all the outstanding taxes on the shop will be
     forgiven.

CITY CLOSE SHOP <shop>
   - Orders the guards to stop commerce in a shop.

CITY OPEN SHOP <shop>
   - Orders the guards to re-open commerce in a shop.

CITY LOCK DOOR <direction>

CITY UNLOCK DOOR <direction>
   - Removes a magical lock from a door.

CITY TITLE SHOP/STOCKROOM <shop> <title>
   - Lets you edit the title of a shop. Costs the city 1000 gold.
   - Stockroom names MUST have the word 'stockroom' in it, and otherwise
     make sense as a stockroom name. "Not a stockroom" is not acceptable. Be
     responsible.
