Log of the High Council Meeting on 6/11/18

Post by Lord DaKaren » Mon Jun 18, 2018 6:59 pm

Log of the 524th Session of the High Council of Britannia.

DaKaren: Welcome to the 524th session of the High Council of Britannia.
DaKaren: The terathans and the ophidians are engaging in open hostilities again, with Papua caught in the middle.
DaKaren: The Ministry of Security has managed to blunt the damage done, but a rogue group of OSS knights has been overtly harassing the terathans.
DaKaren: While this is not a direct threat to Britannia, the people of Papua deserve our support.
DaKaren: You may find the Royal Guard's encampment south of the city to lend your aid.
DaKaren: The thirteenth gubernatorial cycle is upon us, with competitive races in Jhelom, Moonglow, Skara Brae, Trinsic and Yew.
DaKaren: Please be sure to do your civic duty and vote in your home town!
DaKaren: Lastly, I am working on a proposal to Article XVI regarding voting procedures.
DaKaren: Specifically, to create a mandatory delay before a vote may be conducted regarding non-emergency changes to law and constitutional amendments.
DaKaren: It would also require all vote-eligible Council members to be notified.
DaKaren: Look for this in the near future.
DaKaren: Grand Marshal Hla'ate, would you address the Council on military matters in the Kingdom?
Malag aste: The state of the kingdom seems to be in a state of how can I put this... Paxil? Decay, absence... decline...
DaKaren: Decline?
Guntur Kivlov: *smirks slyly*
Qualark Ventes: *blinks*
Malag aste: I've heard many rumors of Governors not getting along... some discord amongst many citizens....
DaKaren: Hmm
Malag aste: comments regarding candidates worries and concerns about certain candidates possibly being allied with our enemies...
Malag aste: I'm hoping that they are untrue.
DaKaren: This sounds like something to be brought up before the Defense Committee.
Qualark Ventes: *perplexed expression*
Malag aste: But I wish to urge citizens to take note and vote for virtue and your own safety.
Qualark Ventes: Do you have evidence?
Dot Warner: Qualark is a Shadowlord!
Qualark Ventes: Shh
Dot Warner: *winks at Qualark*
Malag aste: Let’s just say that I'm keeping a few eyes on the stones...
Qualark Ventes: So that's a no.
Qualark Ventes: I put my neck on the line, business-wise, by entering politics.
DaKaren: I am.. uhm...glad you have...extra...
Qualark Ventes: If my partners and merchants think I'm dealing with enemies...
Qualark Ventes: It's a public forum, I understand.
Martyna Z'muir: *checks Malag for cobwebs*
Qualark Ventes: I hope you can back that up with evidence to the Defense Committee.
Malag aste: My other concern is the lack of security in this chamber.
Malag aste: Seems to me that we have a great number of folk who are supposedly members of the Britannian Armed Forces...
Malag aste: However, as the Grand Marshall... I'm not seeing that to be true.
DaKaren: *tilts head*
Mr E: Kill the traitors with fire
Malag aste: Having tried on many occasions to hold training missions I saw very few in attendance.
Malag aste: This seems to be a problem... and I really think that we need to correct it.
Guntur Kivlov: How many active members of the BAF are left Grand Marshall?
Frank Underwood: *crosses arms put hand on chin*
Conner: ahh frank you want me to rub those shoulders
Malag aste: If I were to go by the attendance at training...
Frank Underwood: please do
Malag aste: Less than 5
Conner: how’s that?
Frank Underwood: mmm
Frank Underwood: good
Guntur Kivlov: *nods* That is troubling. A sign of these times perhaps.
Mr E: We have a five-man army and sign of the times is the response!!!!
Guntur Kivlov: What would you have us do?
Malag aste: What's more troubling is that the numbers of our enemies are at least twice that if not more... as seen in these very chambers.
Guntur Kivlov: A Draft?
Frank Underwood: *looks around*
Dot Warner: You mean conscription?
Malag aste: I'd hate to resort to that extreme
Tanda: Perhaps we interview mercenaries?
DaKaren: It would likely run afoul of the Constitution.
Tanda: No hired killers
Tanda: got it
Malag aste: I would prefer that we had members who are actively willing to uphold the laws of this Kingdom... and defend its citizens.
Guntur Kivlov: perhaps...
Guntur Kivlov: We could just vote all the creatures in the land as citizens...
Guntur Kivlov: That is the way things seem we are headed.
Guntur Kivlov: Problem solved. *scoffs*
Malag aste: I shall attempt to hold another Training a week from today.
Tanda: After the Royal Council?
Malag aste: Yes.
DaKaren: I suggest you announce that several times
Tanda: I think if we travel as a group
Tanda: after the meeting it will help some
Malag aste: Perhaps.
Malag aste: I am just concerned about the safety of the citizens.
DaKaren: *nods*
Malag aste: But yes if I have to send frequent pigeons to drill it into everyone’s heads then fine... so be it.
Malag aste: The final item I have on my agenda....
Malag aste: We have just one other matter....
Malag aste: Velturus Viaxus.
Malag aste: He is he not an enemy of the state.
Malag aste: However, I need to know if he were to show up in these chambers again.... I would wish to arrest him.
Qualark Ventes: I don't believe he is. But he supposed to be accountable to past crimes
Malag aste: I'm hoping that I will have backing if this should occur.
Guntur Kivlov: You have my backing in full to deal with any Viaxus
DaKaren: There would need to be formal charges drawn up first.
Malag aste: Is he or is he not an enemy of the state?
Guntur Kivlov: *looks to Dakaren*
DaKaren: I suggest you confer with Chief Justicar Blazefire...
Guntur Kivlov: Malag.. May I ask you a question?
DaKaren: Not as such, but criminal charges could be brought against him personally.
Malag aste: Of course.
Guntur Kivlov: If you were to strike him down, who would dare stand against you.. who would even be capable?
Guntur Kivlov: *smiles*
Malag aste: He is still a criminal.
Guntur Kivlov: As you said... there is not an army to stand in your way.
Malag aste: I do not strike people down just to strike at them.
Guntur Kivlov: *smiles coldly* You know as well as I it would be Justice.
Mr E: Howdy Kittie!!!
Malag aste: He is though still a criminal.
Malag aste: And should pay for his crimes.
Guntur Kivlov: Indeed.
Malag aste: The others I do not know.
Malag aste: But yes, I will speak with the Justicar.
DaKaren: *nods*
Malag aste: That is all I have.
DaKaren: Thank you, Grand Marshal.
DaKaren: Councilor Kivlov, does the Township of Newcastle have anything to bring before the Council this eve?
Guntur Kivlov: *clears throat*
Qualark Ventes: *hands Eep Eep an empty bottle*
Guntur Kivlov: Good evening Council.
Eep Eep: *grunts*
Guntur Kivlov: I also share the Grand Marshalls concerns of our realm...
Guntur Kivlov: I however don’t believe we have much to change the dire state of things.
Guntur Kivlov: Perhaps we should accept our weakness, and welcome the coming conflict..
Guntur Kivlov: *rubs his head for a moment*
Guntur Kivlov: No... Chancellor.. Newcastle has nothing of merit to note for this evening...
DaKaren: Very well...
Guntur Kivlov: Thank you Chancellor.
DaKaren: Thank you, Councilor.
Guntur Kivlov: *winces*
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
DaKaren: Councilor Knighthawke, does the city of Minoc have anything to bring before the Council this eve?
Tanda: Thank you Chancellor
Tanda: Minoc is faring well
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Tanda: I have no competition for Governor, so I believe I shall be returned to the seat
Someone: Kill this one? *points at Eep Eep*
DaKaren: Who was that?
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Tanda: We will continue to work at unifying our citizens to the Virtue of Sacrifice
Tanda: No idea
Tanda: who that was
Qualark Ventes: *looks around*
Malag aste: Someone hiding over along the wall.
nobody: not me
Tanda: trade is working fairly well
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Tanda: that's all I have
DaKaren: Thank you, Councilor.
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
DaKaren: Councilor Warner, does the City of Britain have anything to bring before the Council this eve?
Dot Warner: Aye, thank you.
Dot Warner: Britain's coffers are full, her people happy and content.
Dot Warner: The Gold Tome of the Virtues was recovered from the "Dark Unborn," though we found it had been corrupted by dark magicks.
Dot Warner: Expert opinion believes that the Tome was used as a focus to directly attack the Virtues themselves, somehow managing to subvert key moments in history which reinforced our shared understanding of them.
Dot Warner: The corrupting influence is most noticeable in the Chamber of Virtue in Britain.
Dot Warner: Unfortunately, there is yet to be a consensus regarding how to safely purify the corruption, without untethering ourselves, or our world, to the Virtues.
Dot Warner: I'll report again when the situation develops further.
Dot Warner: That's all I have for this session. Thank you.
DaKaren: Thank you, Councilor.
DaKaren: Adjutant Thorne, does the city of Yew have anything to bring before the Council this eve?
Someone: *raises hands up frustrated* Well which one am I supposed to kill?
DaKaren: *blinks* Kill?
Ariel Thorne: Oh... dear ... Everything is fine in Yew... though there is some competition against M'Lady Willa of the Yew-wood.
Kittie: *raises a brow*
nobody: hum
Ariel Thorne: We are all hoping that she will once again win the election... but you never know.
Malag aste: Are you making threats?
Qualark Ventes: You'll owe me a year's pay, if you kill my servant.
Eep Eep: *looks alarmed*
Mr E: Want a sock Eep Eep?
Qualark Ventes: Don't offer him anything. You've all already corrupted his idea of fair pay
Malag aste: If you are I highly suggest that you show yourself... or you may find yourself forcibly removed.
Qualark Ventes: He'll be asking for more than half a coin!
Ariel Thorne: That's all I have...
Malag aste: Chancellor...
DaKaren: Thank you, Adjutant.
DaKaren: Grand Marshal?
Malag aste: We have an issue.
Malag aste: There have been murderous threats made.
DaKaren: Indeed. I have heard them as well.
Conner: *shakes head*
Malag aste: If you would use your means to force them from hiding.
Conner: *hum something happen*
Conner: *damn naps*
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
DaKaren: Haelyn
Malag aste: *grabs them*
Mr E: That's bright
nobody: what’s the problem
John: There is another someplace or was.
nobody: cant Witchy and I cuddle in peace?
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Kittie: hmmm..
Malag aste: You have been making murderous threats.
nobody: not I!
Frank Underwood: wow so this is how candidates are treated?
DaKaren: The voice is different.
nobody: I think your eyes might need glasses
Mr E: *chuckles*
nobody: someone is definitely not nobody
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Frank Underwood: you are looking for Someone not Nobody
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Mr E: *laughs out loud*
Qualark Ventes: Doesn't sound like the voice that was making threats…
nobody: and nobody doesn’t want to be someone
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Mr E: This reminds me of a comedy skit I once saw
Earlhad Todie: The suspicion is Nobody is allied with Someone since they were both hidden
Malag aste: No, it doesn't....
Martyna Z'muir: That's not confusing at all...
nobody: I’m SHY
Malag aste: But you will refrain from being hidden if you are going to remain in these chambers.
Frank Underwood: Earl you are wrong
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Eep Eep: *looks confused*
John: I should point out that it is a bad idea to stay hidden while threats are openly being made by someone who also is hidden.
nobody: well where’s the one who you want then?
nobody: I see you haven’t found them yet
Mr E: *shrug*
nobody: maybe we are not safe here
Amethyst Witch: This is the best meeting ever
Frank Underwood: would seem so
Amethyst Witch: *Laughs*
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Qualark Ventes: ow!
Qualark Ventes: *rubs legs and knees*
Malag aste: *leans over*
DaKaren: Haelyn
Qualark Ventes: aaah!
Frank Underwood: uh
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
John: Worry not Governor.
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Qualark Ventes: *blinks*
Frank Underwood: *chuckles*
DaKaren: You were in no danger, Councilor Ventes
John: The fire cannot farm you inside the house merely reveal the hidden.
Qualark Ventes: That's a new one to me.
DaKaren: Shall we move along, Grand Marshal?
Frank Underwood: unless he’s in the back room out of the spell
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Malag aste: It is designed to illuminate the shadows.
Mr E: Right... I am with the slave herder on this one
nobody: or he can log out here
Malag aste: Not burn the Councilors.
nobody: hum
DaKaren: We shall continue...
DaKaren: Councilor Kittie, does the city of Moonglow have anything to bring before the Council this eve?

Conner: hum maybe this someone is someone is in disguise
Frank Underwood: *chuckles*
Kittie: Annual Moonglow Garden Gala and Faire coming up soon! The people are excited for it once more, readying pastries and tending to their shops to ensure a beautiful event.
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Kittie: We do have a group of mages aiding the king currently, but so many have pitched in their support. It's been a peaceful time indeed.
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
Kittie: Coffers continue to grow as well! I am hoping to return to office once again to continue the net tosses, archery tournaments and various
Kittie: events for Moonglow. *smiles* That is all I have.
DaKaren: Thank you, Councilor.
Qualark Ventes: *hic*
DaKaren: Councilor Goldie, does the city of New Magincia have anything to bring before the Council this eve?
Goldie: Thank you Chancellor
Goldie: All is good in Magincia, I ended up being unchallenged this election

Mr E: Gratz Goldie
Goldie: Magincia does not hold any animosity towards him but the threats are taken seriously and will be

Qualark Ventes: Scot, I think. I'm sure.
Martyna Z'muir: Skattles.
Qualark Ventes: I'm happy to report I will be serving another term, and also wish the best of luck to other Governors.
Qualark Ventes: Money to your constituents in the form of tax rebates is always a good policy.
Qualark Ventes: Unrelated to the election of course.
Qualark Ventes: That was all.

Conner: *claps*
Earlhad Todie: I heard of some small conflict with Moonglow’s election.
Earlhad Todie: Impressed to see our incumbent and one of the challengers here tonight.
