A decree issued by Casaer Augustus is causing upheaval throughout the world. The decree requires all persons to return to their place of family origin to register. Relocation for undetermined lengths of time are expected, disrupting many businesses. Some are known to have to travel as far as 80 or 90 miles. Those with elderly parents, small children, or pregnant wives will be at a disadvantage when they arrive last in towns where lodgings are filled to capacity. Rents are likely to spike. Even if it is possible to find lodging with relatives, there may only be beds available in the lower floors of houses, with the animals. Travelers are advised to take as many of their own supplies as they can.
