Visa policy of Raspur

Travel to Raspur, even by the reckoning of the Raspurids themselves, can be a perilous affair. The Raspurids are infamous for offering "protection" to travellers venturing into the ungoverned territories of the Euran territory, whether travelling east to west or north to south. It goes without saying that the thing they are offering protection from most frequently is themselves. Fees can vary wildly in accordance with the caprices of the protectors, sometimes being as little as a token gift or modest payment or sometimes amounting to a full-scale hostage taking with extortionate ransom demands.

The prudent will, before venturing upon a journey, hire middlemen to establish contact with the Raspur Khanate, so as to receive, for a fee naturally, the Khan's blessing for their endeavour and a letter of introduction and safe-conduct issued under his warrant as a firman or decree. Those bearing a firman sealed by the Khan himself will at least have the assurance that the sovereign's wrath will fall severely upon any of his subject who harm one who is under the protection of the Raspuri state.

Under the liberalising influence of Raspur's Grand Vizier, a number of nations have been granted blanket toleration and protection. This seemingly magnanimous gesture may well have been in an effort to encourage inward investment towards what was hitherto considered a "radioactive and bandit infested hellhole abandoned by the malevolent archons who orchestrated its rise and fall" - to quote one particularly forthright assessment doing the rounds in the Kalgachi foreign affairs bureau.

It is, however, still ill-advised for comely travellers, of either sex, to travel upon the dismal roads and caravan trails of the Euran interior, for the Raspuri pay little heed to the firmans, or passports and letters of safe-conduct even of the Khan himself, if they chance upon one whom they desire and wish to snatch up and carry away as an adornment for their own harem.
