An unprecedented event has happened to us : our servants are on strike.

They say they will return to work when their safety from attacks by The Hunters can be guaranteed and not a moment sooner.

My servant Jane informed me a while ago that they wanted an answer to their petition asking for their safety to be guaranteed, but I did not take it seriously and filed a report.  Unfortunately it seems she was correct.

I hope this will soon be over as I have got used to having a servant and find myself uncomfortable without one.

It is widely known that I did time without a servant and now only have one servant, so they are all querying me to ask how they can manage without any.

For example, they have no idea how to order their blood.  Fortunately I have an emergency procedure in place which enables me to take leave from my prison w.o.r.k. and deal with emergencies such as this.

I have sent a pamphlet out in the post to everyone outlining the basics of managing without servants, but am still inundated with queries and will be until this is over.

Some have used this as an excuse to increase their hunting and have been quickly shown the error of their ways.

We do not need large numbers of humans going missing, which would alert the Human police.  We used to be able to pay the police to look the other way, but they are a lot less corrupt these days.

Everyone finds themselves horribly inconvenienced as a castle takes many servants to run.

I have contacted servants I know personally; they say they have funds and are prepared to wait until they get what they want.  I fear the consequences of this on my allies.
