  1. Governor Meeting 12-11-16


    ((Yesterday meeting was very late for those on the east coast. However, we still had a very good turnout. Below are my notes of the meeting and those that spoke during the meeting.))
    Governor Meeting 12-11-16a.jpg
    Before traveling to the isle of Britannia Dezerai stopped by the Herbal shop to see Laura, The Herbalist, to once again ask more questions of her regarding any information about the Void, a Dragon, but it was as she was speaking to a deaf mute.

    Traveling to the City of Britain is always full of adventure, and this time there was combat just outside the very gates of Castle Blackthorn. Governor Dezerai found a lone knight in battle with an Alchemical Energy, she quickly cast heals on this knight, whom she later saw to be Lord Vershawn Knight of Trinsic, and also sent a message on the winds for more help with dealing with this minion from the void. At first, it was a sea-saw battle most times doing running hits, but once more help arrived we were able to final turn the tide of battle against this beast from the void.

    Dezerai: Last week Lord Chimaera said to speak to the Herbalist in Moonglow, She still has yet to speak.
    You see: Lord Clym of Clough [KHV]
    Dezerai: Hail sir
    Clym of Clough: Hail Dez
    Dezerai: we were speaking about Laura at Moonglow
    Clym of Clough: ah
    Dezerai: So far she has refused to say a single word
    Clym of Clough: ah
    Dezerai: I question her this evening prior to this meeting and Drakelord has also questioned her
    Dezerai: now how long do we wait for a King?
    Clym of Clough: yeah good point
    You see: King Blackthorn
    You see: King Blackthorn
    Cinderella: shhh
    Dezerai: ahh
    Dezerai: there he be
    Cinderella: fashionably late *giggles*
    Dezerai: yes indeed
    Governor Meeting 12-11-16b.jpg
    King Blackthorn: Evening governors...
    KHAN: Hail Sire
    Cinderella: Evening Sire
    King Blackthorn: Please be seated
    Clym of Clough: Good Evening
    King Blackthorn: Let us see... Whom are we missing?
    Clym of Clough: Good Evening Lord Galahad
    King Blackthorn: I know Governor Lavendar couldn't attend
    Dezerai: Lady Lavendar is traveling last I heard
    Dezerai: Queen Mum I have not seen since yesterday
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: I hope the schedule change is not keeping any of you up too late

    King Blackthorn: I have a few announcements... The monthly town hall will be held this coming Wednesday at the Hall of Commons Please attend to bring up any subject regarding our lands.

    King Blackthorn: Another dungeon has been overrun with extremely powerful creatures... And Chimaera will need assistance eliminating that threat
    Clym of Clough: Well I sure hope they don't eat our armor like the last big baddie I saw
    King Blackthorn: I heard the alchemical radiation was sickening
    Clym of Clough: it was horrible
    Cinderella: oh it was
    King Blackthorn: destroyed many troops armor
    Clym of Clough: and in a day of limited armor life, quite disturbing
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    Dezerai:Sire we have a minor problem with the information given to us about a Herbalist in Moonglow. She refuses to speak
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    Dezerai: when question by anyone
    King Blackthorn: I'll send a squire to investigate
    Dezerai: her name is Laura
    King Blackthorn: I know.. she may hold the link to awakening the void dragon
    Dezerai: aye
    King Blackthorn: I'll send someone shortly after this meeting to interrogate her
    Dezerai: I have had agents trying to get information from her short of arresting her
    King Blackthorn: *laughs*
    King Blackthorn: I know her well. She was key to finding the underground lair of Eric, the alchemist. Let me have someone speak to her. He may be able to jog her memory. Try to speak with her again, tomorrow
    Dezerai: nods
    Governor Meeting 12-11-16c.jpg
    King Blackthorn: On that note... I thought our troubles were over once the guard defeated the two alchemists. But it seemed we only made things worse
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Cinderella: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: Alchemical energy was released. Which had to be dealt with. That created radiation...
    Dezerai: Lord Vershawn fought one such monster outside these very gates this evening
    King Blackthorn: Evening Lavendar
    King Blackthorn: Was there still radiation remaining. If there is residual radiation, we need to take care of it. But I was told it has been contained
    Vershawn: I was waylaid outside the castle walls earlier
    King Blackthorn: Is it still there?
    Vershawn: No.
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: alright
    Vershawn: Well a puddle of it remains I guess
    King Blackthorn: Ahh... the antimatter That is a substance that exists in the void... an area between two realms
    Cinderella: aye just outside the cave where the dragon sleeps
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    Dezerai: Yes Lord Vershawn was in battle with it when I arrived
    King Blackthorn: Though the physical elements have been contained...
    the energy and radiation antimatter is... something else nothing physical no atoms no weight
    just... darkness
    Dezerai: shivers

    King Blackthorn: in a "puddle" as you call it... I'm not too concerned If it spreads... grows... Then it is something to worry about
    Vershawn: It was dispatched, won't be after anyone at this point
    King Blackthorn: This, I expect, is something that isn't a "thing" we can kill or contain
    But it is something to continue to look after. Mention it to Laura after I have someone speak with her
    King Blackthorn: I'm sure you've all encountered the void pool at some point. It's a terrible place... But the antimatter is what creates that endless portal of vile creatures

    takes a deep breath

    I have one additional announcement. In light of this trouble with the alchemists, You may know by now that I am reinstating the royal guard. Starting next month. The cries will announce the commencement date. The ranks will be changed I will give additional notice. But please bring evidence of your previous rank. The new hierarchy will be posted early, next month. Chimaera will be the commander, for now. He has experience with alchemy, so makes a trusted advisor
    Lavendar: Excellent choice, Your Highness.
    King Blackthorn: That may change after we are sure this alchemical rift has been destroyed
    Dezerai: Aye Lord Drakelord has praised your Champion
    King Blackthorn: *nods* I'm sure he appreciates it. He is quite a new leader
    King Blackthorn: looks around the room

    King Blackthorn: Governors... do you have any news from your state... Let's start with Governor Galahad. Governor Galahad, do you have any news to report?

    Clym of Clough: I was just going to say. On a happier and lighter note, I would like to congratulate Governor Lord Galahad on his city working very hard and attaining a beautiful fully developed Christmas Tree in his fair city.
    Galahad: Thank you Lord Clym
    King Blackthorn: I noticed the tree, the other day. Very nice job, governor
    Galahad: were it not for the family it wouldn't have been possible especially Khan, thank you sire
