Courier

When messages and letters need to be delivered, it is the royal couriers who are charged with the honorable responsibility of protecting and carrying information across vast pieces of land. Some take the journey on horseback, while others simply run from place to place. Depending on the importance of the message, as well as the secrecy surrounding it, some couriers deliver messages by reciting them upon arrival. This is safer in the sense that no one can steal the letter with the information inside, but it means that the courier in question must be trustworthy.
