DaKaren: *arches a brow*
Velturus Viaxus: *looks up suddenly*

DaKaren: Hmm.
Malag aste: We'll meet in one week
Malag aste: I honestly don't know if you all want me to defend the kingdom alone or just hand it over to whomever wants it?
C'rinzik Viaxus: hmm
DaKaren: Perhaps an advertising push is required..
Qualark Ventes: A member from the DeSules will attend
Malag aste: So.. either you wish to defend this Kingdom...
Malag aste: Or you don't.
Malag aste: I expect those that wish to defend it and keep it.... to show up.

Kittie: everyone happy and see to their needs. Gov carpe diem." *she smiles and keeps a deep glare with claws ripping into paper as fur fluffs and whiskers flare.. growling further.. her tail whipping about*
Grumpy Girl: Lies
Grumpy Girl: *coughs*
Grumpy Girl: excuse me
Kittie: What?!
Qualark Ventes: *looks to and fro*
Guntur Kivlov: *smiles*
Kal'iksix Viaxus: *covers her mouth to stifle a chuckle*

Grumpy Girl: *claps*
Treybyre Heart: *Claps*
Farrah: *nods to Jennifer*
Jennifer-Marie: We have not quite settled on a date, but we have seriously considered March 24 - with the time to be determined
DaKaren: Ah, we could run the Bunny Bash on the same day, after the hunt.
Jennifer-Marie: *nods* Adding Festivities can only encourage our various citizens to come together and celebrate the rebirth of Spring.
Kal'iksix Viaxus: *groans softly*
Treybyre Heart: *fiddles with his hair, too*
Jennifer-Marie: While three months seems like much too long to plan, last year's Hunt (our first Governor's Hunt) was a resounding success and I have had citizens asking throughout the year if I will hold it again.
Jennifer-Marie: And I know what didn't quite work the last time, and I am working hard to iron out all those wrinkles this time.
Jennifer-Marie: First Prize at the Easter Egg Hunt will, again, be 30m gold with a Second Place prize of 15m and Third Place prize of 5m.
Jennifer-Marie: If any other Governors are able to help with preparations and gathering prize materials, that would be appreciated

Jennifer-Marie: Nemesis, former Governor of Moonglow, is back and looking for friendly faces to help reintegrate into our society.
Kittie: *blinks.. looks to Tanda*
Jennifer-Marie: And since it is Nemesis who introduced me to civil service, I can say I am uncharacteristically pleased to have him back.

Kittie: *BLINKS!*

Qualark Ventes: I will do my best to improve Vesper's opportunities for profit and acquisition.
Qualark Ventes: Next month, I'll be hosting a city meeting to get to know my citizens and fellow merchants.

DaKaren: Minister Todie, do you have anything to bring before the Council this eve?
Earlhad Todie: Appreciate you Chancellor
Earlhad Todie: We have been fairly quiet now that the holidays are over
Kal'iksix Viaxus: *picks up a spider crawling on the bench and brings it to her lips and whispers*
Earlhad Todie: I also was thrilled to see all the trees get advanced

Dr Jerred DeSule: *looks over, bewildered*
DaKaren: Thank you, Minister.

Treybyre Heart: Thank you for all that you do Governors!
DaKaren: Advocate?
Dr Jerred DeSule: I'll be brief.
Dr Jerred DeSule: *mutters and curses at the paper lantern*
Malag aste: *spiders take up a defensive position between the Viaxus and Kittie*
Dr Jerred DeSule: every time..
Dr Jerred DeSule: As you may be aware, the dead author, JL Polstan, left a series of pages scattered
C'rinzik Viaxus: for her protection of course
Dr Jerred DeSule: across the land as his kidnappers took him to Moonglow
Kal'iksix Viaxus: *chuckles*
Martyna Z'muir: *sighs*
Dr Jerred DeSule: As it turns out, he disguised a spell among the words, which Sir John was helpful enough to
Dr Jerred DeSule: discover.
Kittie: *Kittie’s eyes dilate.. and start to glisten*
Dr Jerred DeSule: I would advise against keeping any copies of the pages, if you found them.
DaKaren: A highly suspect spell.
Dr Jerred DeSule: The spell is rather nefarious sounding, and I won't repeat it here.
DaKaren: *nods*
Dr Jerred DeSule: It appears his captors were after revenge. Although I deem the case closed,
Dr Jerred DeSule: I am attempting to follow up on one lead.
Dr Jerred DeSule: I will keep you informed if something comes of it.
Dr Jerred DeSule: *bows head*
Dr Jerred DeSule: dammit!
Dr Jerred DeSule: *kicks lantern*
DaKaren: Thank you, Advocate.
Velturus Viaxus: *Chuckles*
DaKaren: Do watch out for the lanterns...
Dr Jerred DeSule: yes.. yes..
Dr Jerred DeSule: *glares at it*
Kal'iksix Viaxus: *giggles*
DaKaren: Anyone else?
Guntur Kivlov: *looks to the girl in the audience*
Grumpy Girl: *mumbles*
Qualark Ventes: *looks around at all the drow and visitors*
Guntur Kivlov: Miss?
DaKaren: Nay?
Grumpy Girl: I will reserve comment for another day
Guntur Kivlov: If you wish *shrugs*
