Boon An imperator can grant a noble title, honorary medals or decorations, call for a festival, or offer a charter for a colony or business, if sufficient service is rendered to their government. An imperator also may pardon criminals or order the exile or execution of the guilty. He can grant a monetary reward of up to 1,000 gp to PCs.

An imperator is the ruler of a nation or colony, sometimes an elected minister or head of state and sometimes a hereditary monarch schooled in the arts of statecraft and leadership, but no stranger to the sad necessities of war and blood. Alert for treachery but possessed of all the courtly graces and devious wiles of politics, imperators lead their people. Whether or not an imperator leads them well depends on their alignment, goals, and the motives of their advisors. An imperator can be used as a high-ranking military advisor or chief of staff, a leading senator or member of a similar legislative body, or even a wealthy and influential captain of industry.
