Post by Lord DaKaren » Fri Sep 23, 2016 2:25 pm

King Blackthorn: Welcome governors and citizens to this month's Council meeting.
Skattles II: *crawls back under table*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Good Evening Your Grace.
Tanda: Good evening Your Majesty
King Blackthorn: *nods hello to everyone*
Mr E: *tips cap*
King Blackthorn: We have a lengthy agenda for this meeting, so let's get started.
King Blackthorn: If a governor will not be able to attend a meeting of the Council,
King Blackthorn: Contact my secretaries (Elizabella@uoem.net and Malachi@uoem.net.)
King Blackthorn: If you would like to make a request for assistance with an event,
King Blackthorn: it should be sent to Lord Naniwa (pec.naniwa@gmail.com).
King Blackthorn: He has a cottage with a mailbox in northwest Britain, near the North Side Inn.
King Blackthorn: I see that several governors were unable to be here tonight.
King Blackthorn: Would anyone like to speak for one of their towns this evening?
King Blackthorn: Now I invite each governor to give a State of the Town status report,
King Blackthorn: With each governor yielding the floor to the next in line.
King Blackthorn: We will start from Minoc this meeting. Governor Knighthawke, you have the floor.
Tanda: Thank you, Your Grace
Tanda: Minoc is doing well. We will be leading a strike
Tanda: into Hythloth on September 28th
Tanda: primarily I hate to admit it revenge for the death of one of our own
Tanda: but some fact finding may happen into any link into the untimely
Tanda: death of Minoc Mining Company heir Alex Jr.
Tanda: That is all I have to report
Tanda: I yield to Governor of Magincia
Tanda: Mr. E
Mr E: I apologize
Mr E: I am out of breath from rushing
Mr E: Old bones, old man
Mr E: Magincia is doing very well. We have nothing to note of importance.
Mr E: Todie is doing a wonderful job maintaining trade for Magincia keeping the coffers full.
Mr E: Full coffers make a great economy and happy people. My job is easy with the great people
Mr E: I yield to Governor Willow of Yew.
Mr E: Willa
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Thank you Mr E...
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Yew is doing well.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: We are looking forward to receiving wheat from Britain more easily than ever with our new dock so close to the mill.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: This year looks to be a great year for the mill this year.
Tanda: *tilts head*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: We are looking forward to it.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Anyway things are looking good in the town and it's been fairly peaceful.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: I am planning on the annual Samhain Festival for the Theatre with another Costume Contest.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Likely it'll be the 24th of October.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: I should have more news regarding that closer to the date.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Something strange is afoot in here your Grace.
King Blackthorn: Hmm?
Willa of the Yew-Wood: I keep seeing doors open and close...
King Blackthorn: It's probably the wind.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Has me concerned.
Dot Warner: 'Tis the season for ghosts...
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Yes..... while it is getting that time of year... it's most unsettling.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: At any rate I yield to Governor Aornis of Vesper.
Aornis: Thank you, Governor Willa.
Aornis: All is well in Vesper. Trade is even more prosperous as usual, something which I attribute to
Aornis: her citizens' growing excitement for the Walrus fest in a few months time
Aornis: That is all. I yield to Governor Gurney.
Gurney Halleck: Thank you
Gurney Halleck: I am pleased to report to your majesty that work on infrastructure continues
Gurney Halleck: much of the damage to the walls of Trinsic will be greatly repaired. This has done wonders to keep
Gurney Halleck: unemployment rates low
Gurney Halleck: Aside from this I have nothing of substance to report and I yield the floor
Dot Warner: Thank you, Governor Halleck. Thank you, Your Majesty.
Dot Warner: Britain has been quiet as of late, though trade remains strong.
Dot Warner: The merchants are hoping that the All Hallows festivities will give a boost to the lagging tourism.
Dot Warner: The Third Annual Smuggler's Run Regatta was only lightly attended this year. *frowns slightly*
Dot Warner: However, congratulations go to Lea Wavedancer who won first place and a newly commissioned Britannian ship. May the wind always be at her back.
Dot Warner: That is all I have. Thank you, Your Majesty.
King Blackthorn: Thank you to all the governors for keeping me informed about your towns and cities.
King Blackthorn: Our Minister of Security, Magnus Grey, shall now address the Council.
Magnus Grey: Your majesty. Governors.
Magnus Grey: The Ministry of Security is currently dealing with a situation in the Ethereal Void.
Magnus Grey: While we were able to help a group of rogue An-Kal-Lem who wished to be free of their blood,
Magnus Grey: Interference by Neikea of the Dark Unknown attracted another daemon called AtoGau.
Magnus Grey: AtoGau the Worldeater is on course to devour the fragment world of Balema.
Magnus Grey: As its protectors. We cannot let it consume the magic of Balema,
Magnus Grey: As it is likely that the large daemon will approach one of the facets of Sosaria after.
Magnus Grey: We are not currently able to injure the creature, but the Ministry is investigating.
Magnus Grey: We have collected information on a hidden vault with a weapon to fight it.
Magnus Grey: Currently, with Britannian security focused on this threat and the crisis in Eodon,
Magnus Grey: We are stretched rather thin, and I have been forced to pull back some of our scouts.
Magnus Grey: For example, there are a few strange reports we haven't been able to look into.
Magnus Grey: We ask that any town militias or concerned citizens keep an eye out.
Magnus Grey: And pass any information onto the Ministry of Security.
Magnus Grey: Margaret Korbel sent a quick note that the diplomatic meeting will likely take place in November.
Your luck just ran out.
Magnus Grey: The city of Luna was chosen by you all as the site of the signing and state visit.
Magnus Grey: More information will be forthcoming.
Magnus Grey: The Ministry will need to provide protections to the royals and diplomats during this.
Magnus Grey: Any questions on Britannian security?
Dot Warner: Anything more concrete than 'strange reports?'
Magnus Grey: A minor earthquake in Ilshenar, a few storms over Tokuno, and a string of minor thefts here.
Gurney Halleck: Could you please define 'minor thefts'?
Dot Warner: Anything of import stolen?
Magnus Grey: Small magical and alchemical items, possibly useful in a ritual.
Magnus Grey: Nothing very valuable or rare.
Magnus Grey: But still presenting a pattern.
Dot Warner: *nods*
Magnus Grey: I hope to get a few of my scouts back when the Eodon situation becomes less active.
Tanda: So items of protection, like salt and garlic
Magnus Grey: Maybe we'll get a cold season, and the Myrmidex will hibernate...
Tanda: or of offense like sulpherus ash
Magnus Grey: Not protective, but not obviously offensive. Black pearl, mandrake, blood moss...*checks notes*
Tanda: *nods thoughtfully*
Magnus Grey: Large supply of candles, a few runes, a large crystal focus.
Tanda: Thank you Sir
Magnus Grey: I think that's everything.
Magnus Grey: Most welcome.
Magnus Grey: I will hopefully have more information for next meeting.
Magnus Grey: Thank you for your time.
King Blackthorn: My thanks to Minister Grey.
King Blackthorn: Now I shall respond to the State of the Towns.
King Blackthorn: Governor E, I am pleased that my city of shepherds is prospering.
King Blackthorn: Governor Knighthawke, I wish you luck on your investigation in Hythloth.
Tanda: *nods*
King Blackthorn: I hope the deceased's family finds the answers they seek.
King Blackthorn: Governor Warner, I join you in congratulating Lea Wavedancer on her victory in the Regatta.
King Blackthorn: Governor Halleck, it is good that the city is swiftly repairing the walls,
King Blackthorn: before the long winter we have ahead of us.
King Blackthorn: As you mention, the repairs to the infrastructure will also stimulate the economy,
King Blackthorn: putting more gold in the pockets of citizens as they too prepare for winter.
King Blackthorn: Governor Aornis, yes, I too look forward to the Walrus Festival.
Aornis: (Apologies, but I must leave early. Good night, everyone!)
Skattles II: bark!
Magnus Grey: *nods to Aornis*
Aornis: *nods* thank you!
King Blackthorn: *nods*
Magnus Grey: Good night.
Aornis: It is a wonderful festival
King Blackthorn: How well I remember the sparkling lights, the fragrant evergreens,
King Blackthorn: the piles of toys, and the clubbing of walruses... *pauses for a moment*
King Blackthorn: Well, some things change, but 'tis still the most magical time of the year.
King Blackthorn: Governor Willa, it is good to hear that the dock has made life easier for the
King Blackthorn: hardworking citizens of Yew.
King Blackthorn: May the harvest be bountiful and the Samhain festival a great success.
King Blackthorn: Now we turn to requests from governors
King Blackthorn: There weren't any this month, except those ably handled by the Lady Wraith. My thanks to her.
King Blackthorn: Now we shall open the floor to new issues.
King Blackthorn: Governors may present any new issues first.
King Blackthorn: Now citizens may present new issues.
George: Aye!
King Blackthorn: Go ahead, George
George: *eyes widen*
George: How'd ye know my name??
George: *looks around in a paranoid way*
King Blackthorn: I'm a mage of some repute.
Mr E: *points at wanted poster*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: He is the King... and a mage King at that.
George: Who's in charge 'round here? I -demand- t'know!
King Blackthorn: I am in charge. What is your concern?
George: I got a complaint, and I demand satisfaction!
George: My name is George Herman, but ye can call me George, fer short!
Mr E: *closes eyes and pulls down hood*
George: This morning I woke up in the east side park, as is my daily custom!
King Blackthorn: *nods*
Dot Warner: *arches a brow*
George: First thing I did, after waking myself up to a few healthy drinks o' rum,
George: I proceed ta find me pals
George: Poor ol' Pete and Smilin' Steve!
George: 'cept they weren't where they was s'posed ta be!
George: So I went about the town o' Britain searchin' for my pals
King Blackthorn: *listens*
George: That's when I found a grilled piece o' chicken just layin' on the ground!
George: Layin' there, can ye believe it?!
King Blackthorn: Please continue.
George: So I picked up this piece o' chicken an' took a bite
Martyna Z'muir: ...
George: It had -worms-, King! Worms!
Dr Jerred DeSule: *hides revolt*
George: Who is responsible fer makin' sure the food in this town is clean, huh??
George: But that ain't my complaint.
Dot Warner: Perhaps this is why it was on the ground?
Tanda: *pats Governor Warner's shoulder*
George: So after pukin' my guts out I decided it was time ta take my daily bath
Mr E: Where are the guards that collect your drunkards, Dot?
Dot Warner: Good question.
George: I slipped into me ol' birthday suit an' had a dip in the river
Dot Warner: *facepalms*
Mr E: *places head on table*
George: There I was cleanin' myself up, makin' me'self respectable
Dr Jerred DeSule: Sir..
George: And some good-for-*NOTHING* guard starts screamin' at me!
Martyna Z'muir: Respectable...
Dot Warner: For public lewdness?
George: He's just givin' me what fer with that loud mouth, 'e was, sayin' 'e was goin' ta arrest me!
Mr E: Because you were not in a bath tub sir
George: So I got the hell out o' there, I did!
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Good.
Tanda: I bathe in the river often
Tanda: *laughs*
George: Was runnin' buck-arse naked down the streets o' Britain I did!
Dot Warner: *sighs*
Mr E: *looks at the wanted poster again to compare*
George: That's when I happen'd 'cross the Blue Boar
George: A miserable establishment if ye ask me
George: Thrown me out twice now fer NO good reason at all!
George: But that ain't my complaint
King Blackthorn: *listens*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Probably your nudity.
George: I wasn't naked the first two times ye green elf!
Mr E: Sir what can we do for you. What is your complaint!
Skattles II: *eyes George's stick*
George: Anyways, I kept on runnin' 'til I come across the tailor's shop
Mr E: That is a location.. not a complaint.
George: I walk in my beautiful naked self still gleamin' in the sunlight from my bath
George: I ask the tailor kindly fer some spare clothes
Tanda: *grins*
George: The tailor, kind man that 'e was, said I could 'ave a pair of old pants and told me ta get out!
Mr E: Still not a complaint.
King Blackthorn: Well that was nice of the tailor.
Tanda: Indeed
King Blackthorn: Very generous citizens I have.
George: Aye, 'cept his pants 'ad fleas in 'em!
George: What kind o' establishment is that??
Mr E: Is that your complaint? The free pants had fleas in them?
George: That ain't my complaint
Willa of the Yew-Wood: One that obviously caters to drunks who lose their pants.
Dot Warner: *rubs the bridge of her nose*
King Blackthorn: Perhaps a local vet could help you remove the fleas.
George: I left that shop scratchin' me knickers the whole way back ta the park
George: Right then I saw, beneath a pile o' rubbish, me two pals!
George: Poor ol' Pete! And Smilin' Steve!
George: Pete! I says. Steve!
Dot Warner: Were they alive?
George: Where ye been??
Mr E: I hope not
Mr E: *sighs*
George: The two of 'em sit up, pushin' the rubbish off o' themselves
Tanda: *elbows Mr. E*
Tanda: You said that out loud
George: They says ta me, they says, we're in yer mind, George!
Mr E: *coughs*
Dr Jerred DeSule: Oh dear..
George: That's when I realize they don't exist, neither of 'em!
Mr E: oops
George: Was all a ruse, it was!
George: An' that's when I discovered what 'appened ta me!
Willa of the Yew-Wood: I think you need to lay off the run.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: er rum.
George: It is clear ta me that a curse has been planted inside o' me brain
King Blackthorn: My suggestion is that you go to the Conservatory and tell them
George: Part of a government conspiracy ta track me movements
King Blackthorn: it is my wish that you be given training as a wandering minstrel.
Dot Warner: The curse of rum?
George: Yer knowin' me name just PROVED it!
Mr E: Can I place a bounty on someone named George that lives in your town Dot?
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Likely you were hallucinating from eating rotten chicken... combined with your alcoholism...
King Blackthorn: I think you will make a fine... well, a bard.
Dot Warner: Uhm. No.
George: It's as clear as the sun itself I am bein' tracked by the governments o' Britannia, Britain, Minoc..
George: ..and I *demand* a written apology!
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Well now we know where you are and we know where you live....
Dot Warner: We could get him a caddelite helm...
King Blackthorn: Again, I am giving you a free education as a minstrel. That is better than an apology.
George: Oh, an "education", huh??
Mr E: You called him Bard material. I think I need an apology.
Tanda: I am sorry for any inconvenience Minoc has caused you
George: Want ta turn me inta one of yer smilin' sycophants, that right??
Tanda: Minoc*
King Blackthorn: *sighs*
Skattles II: *sniffs George's stick*
George: I -demand- a letter o' apology from the varyin' governments o' Britannia!
Skattles II: *bites the stick and tugs gently*
Dot Warner: *makes note to have a guard follow 'George' *everywhere*.*
King Blackthorn: A potential bard, Mr E. Potential.
George: Fer plantin' this curse inside of me brain!
Tanda: *summons a small purse of gold*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Don't pick up meat off the ground and eat it.
Skattles II: *tugs on the staff more insistently and growls playfully*
Mr E: George I want you to sincerely know I had no idea who you were before this meeting.
George: *takes the sack of gold*
Tanda: Here is a small token
George: Tryin' ta pay me off, that it??
George: *tucks the gold away*
George: Well it won't work!
Mr E: And after you have spoken I want to make sure I know where you are
Tanda: may it buy you a clean pair of britches
King Blackthorn: Governor Knighthawke is very kind.
Skattles II: *whines*
Tanda: and a fresh bottle of Rum
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Yes... very.
Skattles II: *plops back in seat*
Dot Warner: I think he's had enough rum.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: So you know ..... we now know where you live.
George: Aye, I'll bet you'll all seem real kind once me brain's been warped by yer curse!
Mr E: I highly recommend taking Governor Tanda's offer. It is far more reasonable than one I see for
Mr E: you
George: I am usin' this ta find a cure, if the lot o' ye ain't helpin' me!
Tanda: His tale was worth every bit
Mr E: But if you do come to Magincia, drop by the Governor’s Office. I have a special room just for
Mr E: you
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Might I suggest you return to the Kindly Tailor and ask if'n he has some work for you.
Tanda: If'n ye wish to visit me in Minoc I would gladly do what I can
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Perhaps then you might get a pair of pants without fleas.
King Blackthorn: I wish you luck with your search.
George: *scratches himself*
Mr E: If you come I promise the curse will be removed.
George: This is an outrage! An' outrage I say!
George: Ye'll never get me!
Mr E: *mumbles*
Mr E: and other random body parts
King Blackthorn: *sighs*
Dot Warner: Well that was...interesting...
Willa of the Yew-Wood: I'm glad 'e lives here.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Not in Yew.
Tanda: Very
Mr E: King I would like to make a complaint about Drunkards in Brit.
Mr E: Just pointing it out
Tanda: I'd say he's a skilled storyteller
Magnus Grey: A city has all kinds.
King Blackthorn: I agree, Governor Knighthawke, he does have potential.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: And if there is a pile of refuse in the East Park you may want to clean that up.
Gurney Halleck: You should not encourage him, some comments might give him leg to stand upon in a legal suit
Willa of the Yew-Wood: He had a leg ..... I suspect a rotten chicken leg.
King Blackthorn: Let us hope the brothers and sisters of the bar would refuse his case.
Dot Warner: Assuming that was even real.
Tanda: A good pub and a bottle and audience I think he'd be set
Dr Jerred DeSule: *shrugs helplessly*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Right may have eaten a rat for all we know.
Dr Jerred DeSule: The king DID know his name
Dr Jerred DeSule: *glances over his shoulder at the door*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: He knows mine too.
Dr Jerred DeSule: *chuckles*
King Blackthorn: It's just a small cantrip, to make my citizens feel I know them.
King Blackthorn: Most like it.
Dot Warner: Might not want to admit that...
King Blackthorn: A king should know his people.
King Blackthorn: I want them to feel valued.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Aye he should.
Tanda: *snickers*
Mr E: Why I could never be king
Dr Jerred DeSule: I will look this man, should he still be in Britain, and help him if I can.
Dr Jerred DeSule: I will look for this man, rather.
Dot Warner: Thank you, Dr. DeSule.
Tanda: *smiles*
King Blackthorn: That is a good idea, Dr DeSule.
King Blackthorn: *smiles*
Tanda: If I can help let me know
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Perhaps you could aide him in his insanity...
Willa of the Yew-Wood: I think he's in need of a Dr.
King Blackthorn: Governor Warner, you may want to pass along the information about the fleas to local tailors.
Dot Warner: *nods*
Tanda: Yes that could be a potential trade killer
King Blackthorn: Well, we did the best we could with that issue. We should move on.
King Blackthorn: Are there any other new issues to be addressed this evening?
Mr E: *pulls hood back up*
Tanda: I say we all go out for a pint
Tanda: after this
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Poor puppy I hope he doesn't get fleas now...
King Blackthorn: A good idea, but I cannot accompany you all this evening.
You see: decorative carpet
Skattles II: *tilts head*
Now following.
King Blackthorn: Huh, good point, Governor Willa
Skattles II: *looks back and forth between them*
Tanda: I'll bring you a bottle next month Your Majesty
King Blackthorn: If someone knows the owner of that dog, they might want to mention the fleas to them.
Willa of the Yew-Wood: I'll have to see if I can whip up a good flea remedy.
Dot Warner: *points to the Doctor*
King Blackthorn: That is very nice of you both, Governors Knighthawke and Willa.
Skattles II: woof!
Willa of the Yew-Wood: I'm betting my sister has one.
Dr Jerred DeSule: *mumbles something under his breath*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: She's very good with animals.
Dot Warner: *smirks*
King Blackthorn: Whose dog is that, by the way?
Dr Jerred DeSule: That is my dog..
Dr Jerred DeSule: *eyes Skattles*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: It seems to like him.
King Blackthorn: Ah, then I am sure it will be fine.
Dr Jerred DeSule: *nods*
Dr Jerred DeSule: He's behaving .. well.. today.
King Blackthorn: He seems like a good dog.
Dr Jerred DeSule: Thank you, your grace
Dr Jerred DeSule: You hear that boy?
Dr Jerred DeSule: *looks over shoulder*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Quite friendly.
King Blackthorn: *smiles*
Skattles II: *thumps tail in chair*
King Blackthorn: If there are no further issues, we shall adjourn.
Tanda: Blessed Be
Mr E: *tips cap*
Willa of the Yew-Wood: Thank you Your Grace.
King Blackthorn: Thank you to all the governors present for a very productive Council meeting.
King Blackthorn: My thanks as well to all the citizens who had the civic spirit to attend.
King Blackthorn: Now we shall adjourn. Goodnight.
