    Barring any major scandal, they are shoo-ins for the governorship positions. But it doesn't hurt for the citizens to know their manifestos, not least so that they may be judged on it at the end of the term.

    Feel free to use this thread to ask additional questions, send messages of support, or just heckle the candidates.

    Hoffs' Skara Brae manifesto:

    Why are you running for governor?
    As the city-state of Gilfane occupies the land areas adjacent to Skara, there is a high degree of friendship, cooperation and trade that goes on between the two communities. With the people of Skara also looking toward their bigger neighbour for assistance in times of crisis, it seems only natural that a member of Gilfane should seek the position of governor here.

    Have you any previous political experience?
    Apart from my previous term as governor, I am Keeper of the Hall [GM] of Gilfane and Chancellor of the White Council alliance.

    What qualities do you think you possess which would make you a good governor?
    My organizational ability and experience are probably the best things I can offer.

    Are you planning on running any trade deals? If so, which ones and how do you intend to finance them?
    I would like to keep a trade deal going, probably with the Guild of Arcane Arts. Funding will likely be a combination of donations and power scroll sales.

    Do you have any plans to petition the King for town improvements?
    I plan on asking the King to inspect several suspect houses on the outskirts of the town and to demolish them if they are found to be unsound.

    Do you have any other plans/promises for the towns, e.g. events, etc.?
    Nothing specific at this time.

    Would you have any particular policies towards specific groups, e.g. murderers, thieves, elves, mages, etc.?
    There are no restrictions except for those who cause trouble whilst in the town.

    Why do you think nobody else is running for governorship in Skara?
    They perhaps recognise the town's close connections to Gilfane and reason that they would be unable to persuade the population to elect a candidate from elsewhere.

    Any other thoughts or messages you would like to pass on to your electorate?
    That you can rely on the full support and resources of Gilfane for your continued well-being.


    Kelmo's Trinsic manifesto:

    Why are you running for governor?
    Trinsic has been long ignored. Much history has revolved around this neglected township. I remember not so long ago all Trinsic was a jumping off point for Magincia. This city has a proud history. I will seek to reclaim that.

    Have you any previous political experience?
    I have had numerous experiences throughout the years I have spent on Siege, I have been a pauper, politician and a pirate. I bring a particularly unique set of skills and experience to the task of restoring the former glory of the historic city of Trinsic.

    What qualities do you think you possess which would make you a good governor?
    I have a lot of patience and can be unusually stubborn when I set my mind to accomplishing a task.

    Are you planning on running any trade deals? If so, which ones and how do you intend to finance them?
    I will study the deals and decide what the proper policies and funding will be after some serious thoughts on this matter.

    Do you have any plans to petition the King for town improvements?
    I am currently exploring the city of Trinsic and assessing several issues. There seems to be a flow of molten lava that needs to be addressed, one way or the other. I would also like to beautify the walkway along the moat. I have several ideas. *smiles*. One major effort I would like to push for soon is the expulsion of several leftover Shadowlord horse vendors as they are an eyesore.

    Do you have any other plans/promises for the towns, e.g. events, etc.?
    I do. There are several interesting features already present that can be used for events and gatherings.

    Would you have any particular policies towards specific groups, e.g. murderers, thieves, elves, mages, etc.?
    There is a very nice city jail. *chuckles*

    What do you think nobody else is running for governorship in Trinsic?
    *chuckles* Why would anyone waste time and gold running against me? Maybe when I build Trinsic into a vibrant and bustling city some will attempt to take what I have built for my citizens... *smiles*

    Any other thoughts or messages you would like to pass on to your electorate?
    I would ask the constituents to embrace the coming changes and opportunities that will come with my leadership. I will promise to make Trinsic a prosperous and exciting city to live in as well as visit.


    Salinger's Jhelom manifesto:

    Why are you running for governor?
    Did you ever get fed up? I mean did you ever get scared that everything was going to go lousy unless you did something? I didn't even know what I was running for; I guess I just felt like it.

    Have you any previous political experience?
    I don't want to go into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, questions like this bore me, and in the second, my previous guildmates would have about two haemorrhages apiece if I mentioned anything personal about them. They are quite touchy.

    What qualities do you think you possess which would make you a good governor?
    I'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. It's awful. If I'm on my way to Luna to buy something, even, and somebody asks me where I'm going, I'm liable to say “I'm going to Shame.”

    Are you planning on running any trade deals? If so, which ones and how do you intend to finance them?
    If I get no request/input, I will go with Bardic Collegium. Goddam gold. It always ends up making you blue as hell.

    Do you have any plans to petition the King for town improvements?
    Certain things, they should stay the way they are. You ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases in a museum and just leave them alone. The best thing about Jhelom is that everything has stayed right where it was. The only thing different is you. Maybe you have finished your warrior training and no longer use the duelling pits or maybe your tamer has surpassed the use of the pens, however you can come back and renew your memories any time.

    Do you have any other plans/promises for the towns, e.g. events, etc.?
    It has come to my attention the fine gift of melodic tunes from citizen Rue Tor. I hope to see him take the stage in the forbidden Performing Arts Center to recite his verse and overcome his irrational fears.

    Would you have any particular policies towards specific groups, e.g. murderers, thieves, elves, mages, etc.?
    I am always saying "Glad to've met you" to somebody I'm not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff, though.

    Why do you think nobody else is running for the governorship in Jhelom?
    People never notice anything.

    Any other thoughts or messages you would like to pass on to your electorate?
    "Politics is a game, boy. Politics is a game one plays according to the rules." Game, my ****. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hotshots are, then it's a game all right - I'll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren't any hotshots, then what's a game about it? Nothing. No game. I don't exactly know what I mean by that, but I mean it.


    Samantha's Yew manifesto:

    Have you any previous political experience?
    I had some experience in the lands of Atlantic as a leader of a respectable guild when the previous leader stepped down. Unfortunately, his departure left a void that was never filled, and the guild floundered. Shortly after that, I began to travel into the mysterious worlds of Siege. Here, I was a co-leader of the new helper group, NEW., under Tina Tink. After leaving Siege for a time, I returned and helped Tina again as she created NEW2. I then left to seek my fortune within the ranks of GIL.

    Are you planning on running any trade deals? If so, which ones and how do you intend to finance them?
    I plan to continue utilizing trade deals, especially with the Guild of Arcane Arts. Generous donations from Yew citizens, along with my own funds, will be (and have been) used to fund these trade deals.

    Do you have any plans to petition the King for town improvements?
    I currently have no petitions to ask of the king, but I am open to suggestions from my citizens.

    Would you have any particular policies towards specific groups, e.g. murderers, thieves, elves, mages, etc.?
    I am completely non-racist, but I do believe that elves best thrive in Yew, especially since the discovery of Heartwood within the city of Yew several years back.

    Any other thoughts or messages you would like to pass on to your electorate?
    I thank the voters of Yew for their support of me, and I hope to continue to represent Yew in a worthy manner.


    Victim's Vesper manifesto:

    Why are you running for governor?
    For the sweet kickbacks.

    Have you any previous political experience?
    None.

    What qualities do you think you possess which would make you a good governor?
    I have the time.

    Are you planning on running any trade deals? If so, which ones and how do you intend to finance them?
    I will hold a town meeting [poll on Stratics] for the populace to decide.

    Do you have any plans to petition the King for town improvements?
    I'd rather not involve the undead in our government.

    Do you have any other plans/promises for the towns, e.g. events, etc.?
    Nothing I can speak of at the moment.

    Would you have any particular policies towards specific groups, e.g. murderers, thieves, elves, mages, etc.?
    I welcome any and all into Vesper.

    Any other thoughts or messages you would like to pass on to your electorate?
    *ponders* Only that I will keep the minions busy with sanitation and town beautification (as long as they don't slack on keeping up Luka's castle grounds).
