Note that this does not constitute an imperial position, merely a removal of
official displeasure. The Warlord issue is a bit more curious, but events
were pressing... note that Setha did not *remain* Warlord down to Vlad's
time, so perhaps the "rule" is still in force, especially since the
extenuating circumstances have passed.

*before* this "official" lifting of the ban.  Even in Tortaalik's

Be pretty if you are,
Be witty if you can,
But be cheerful if it kills you.
