    King Blackthorn: Yes please
    Galahad: M'lord as you have noticed I am sure I have been away for some time and if the meetings change back to during the week it will be the same again. I just wanted to let you know that during the week I am not able to make them, my hours are long, that's it, sorry I have been absent.
    King Blackthorn: Let me reiterate.
    King Blackthorn: The rules are
    King Blackthorn: When someone takes office they are committing time and effort to that city
    King Blackthorn: This is not just supposed to be for the title

    *OOC* I will leave a bit of this chat out as it did not belong within this world's role play.

    King Blackthorn: If you cannot make meetings you are expected to send message to me explaining this
    King Blackthorn: If another wishes to take the place of a governor they must prove they are reliable and prove that the elected official is not. I am speaking generally Galahad, I am repeating the rules for everyone here. *waves hand over the table*
    King Blackthorn: It was voted upon last month
    Galahad: and the verdict was?
    Dezerai: *sigh*
    King Blackthorn: And all agreed we would now have meetings on this day and time
    Galahad: ok
    Galahad: I can make this
    King Blackthorn: Once per month
    Galahad: As evidenced by my being here now
    Galahad: I was only trying to be polite
    King Blackthorn: Should we find the need we shall revisit the issue
    King Blackthorn: Galahad you are speaking to me the King of Britannia
    King Blackthorn: I am speaking to all in general not just you
    King Blackthorn: As you see several seats are open
    King Blackthorn: *waves hand again*
    King Blackthorn: If you feel you cannot fill the seat to which you were elected
    King Blackthorn: For whatever reason
    King Blackthorn: Feel free to step down
    King Blackthorn: There are very few requirements to office
    King Blackthorn: But the people have elected specific people to take seat
    King Blackthorn: My wishes are not even in consideration at this point Galahad
    King Blackthorn: If someone steps forward and requests the seat of Jhelom
    King Blackthorn: We will discuss the merits then
    King Blackthorn: Until then you are who the people have elected
    King Blackthorn: I do not see what the problem is Or why this foot stomping is going on
    King Blackthorn: I am simply explaining the rules so that you understand them
    King Blackthorn: Everyone here knows what the rules are
    Galahad: I'm good
    King Blackthorn: I have gotten messages from governors when they were unable to attend
    King Blackthorn: and their abscense was excused
    King Blackthorn: Tis' only once a month
    King Blackthorn: *shakes head wearily*
    King Blackthorn: Anyone have any questions?

    Lavendar: Your Highness
    King Blackthorn: *glances around*
    Lavendar: I would like to bring up a small matter which is that next meeting is scheduled on Mother's Day I will be unable to attend and I will send you a message.
    King Blackthorn: May the 8th is Mother's Day?
    Lavendar: I would also say that we had more people attend on the other time.
    Lavendar: We changed it for Galahad.
    Lavendar: I hope people can still make it.
    Clym of Clough: and Galahad is here
    Lavendar: May 8 is Mother's Day and it might be a problem for more people than just myself.
    Lavendar: But I will be leaving my home and traveling by ship to see my mother.
    Lavendar: I will not be able to be here.
    King Blackthorn: Perhaps it would be best if we moved the May meeting to the 15th then
    Lavendar: For myself,
    King Blackthorn: I am sure you are not the only one here with a Mother!
    Lavendar: I will be on a ship traveling home that day
    King Blackthorn: *chuckles*
    Lavendar: and still will not be able to be here.
    Lavendar: However other folks might find that a help.
    King Blackthorn: Ahh I do love to travel by ship!
    Lavendar: I am back home that evening.
    Lavendar: Ah, yes, the salt air
    King Blackthorn: Please use care that you do not run into any pirates!
    Lavendar: I shall take good precaution.
    Lavendar: Thank you.
    King Blackthorn: I will take the date into consideration when making the schedule for May
    Image8.jpg
    King Blackthorn: Anything else we need to cover?
    King Blackthorn: *glances around the room*
    King Blackthorn: I will call this meeting closed! Back to protecting Sosaria everyone!
