    So we are going to do a community drop off again? Thats what I got out of the speech. To provide for the military rebuild. Forced inscription. Blah Blah Blah.

    Empty Threats!

    I also noted the Kingdom must be broke because he wore nothing to make himself "Kingly" and even the crown was cheap.

    Who cares if its a Dictatorship just how will it affect our gameplay? It wont. Except for roleplayers.

    "Forced inscription"?! *avoids the wandering tatoo parlors*

    re:crown ... I guess the nobles are not as item-obsessed as we are :)

    Wow. You know, that statement is actually some pretty impressive role-playing. I guess it's all good as long as the trains run on time?

    I am pretty sure it is Event Moderators running this. So events of this type are not dependent on publish schedules.

    I hope I'm misunderstanding the abolishment edict.

    Someone have a transcript of the speech from each shard?

    I saved my journal on Pacific. We had Sherry show up too. Did the other shards have a Sherry appearance?

    Correct, and as such, each Casca speech per shard is different, and may or may not include interactions with Sherry.
     
  15. The Cowardly Usurper did not even address our concerns.

    And then, a closed door meeting was held at the Councilor's Guildhall in Britain.

    Something is very wrong here.

    Casca must be stopped.

    Good.

    It would have been very boring if it was just an automated speech.
     
  18. My sister is correct.

    I have wanted to give this man a chance, but it would appear that he is false.

    As the rightful heir to Lord British's throne, I am afraid I cannot swear allegiance to Casca.

    The time has come for me to accept what Lord British had wanted me to become.

    Shades of grey. I may not embrace all 8 of your virtues, but I Will see Casca burn. He's not of the fey; not a true elf. Nor is he suited to be King of these lands.

    Hidden rooms, deep in the walls of Castle Blackthorn. A man, in the comfort of a Lords rooms, but a prisoner.

    Imprisoned by the Royal Council years ago, while the world has seen his feigned death. Guarded by the same guards for a long time.
    No chance to escape, no contact to people besides a few loyal old servants taking care for the daily needs.

    And now - forgotten from the world. The guards have been sent to fight the dragons invading the capital. None of them returned from the battlefield.
    New - now royal - guards without knowledge about the hidden prisoner.
    Lord Casca - the only surviving member of the Royal Council - never got informed about the mysterious prisoner as well.

    So only he and his servants now know, that he still exists. But still imprisoned and without much knowledge, what happened in all the time in his beloved Sosaria ...

    You can blame this on the fiction that is being given to us. We are aware of his doings because of the stuff going on with Ricardo and Avery.

    Aside from that he mentioned on Baja that there will be no accusation against the council nor the nobility and all things of that nature will be sensured.(I assume he meant censored.) That itself is enough for me.

    I asked him what he wanted us to DO, he pretty much stated we should defend Vesper, Yew and the other cities.

    Like some have been doing.

    Wow, he's just as good at useless pronouncements as British ever was.

    I'm with you on this! None of it sits well with me, even choosing Blackthorns castle seems significant... and not in a good way. This is all going to get a lot worse before people will see Casca for what he truly is.

    for some reason they held the event both in tram and fel on chessy 2 hours apart, as expected a guild of reds raided it in fel and killed all the blues but i got away on my stealther, i think it should have only been held in tram because everyone has a blue... i mean if someone actually has 6 reds on their account then thats their fault

    How about player interaction rather than just an automated character?

    Perhaps his supporters should pick a color and start wearing sashes to show their loyalty to the new order? No need to wait for him to hand out some specially marked ones - any tailor and a dye tub could start such a movement on his behalf.

    We had interaction on Cats. The EM addressed specific peoples shouting during the event by name. Hehe... related to current events in the real world.... I think the EM even *ducked* when someone threw their shoes. I was too busy reading the journal for his speech.

    The text was dark blue. Great for the journal but not so great for the screen. It wouldn't have mattered anyway. Folks were yelling so much I wouldn't have been able to read it there. So the color was a wise choice I think. Overall a pretty good test run for him. Good work!

    But Stratics said my post size had to be at least three characters, so...

    lol I was expecting that, though I actually had planned to go to the fel one and didn't get going in time so I had to settle for Trammel.

    At least he attempted to answer questions, though I think he finally just gave up trying to look through his journal.

    Or stylish shadow lord couture to not support him.

    Trouble is that far too many of us have (right or wrong) jumped ahead a couple of chapters in our opinions.

    I thought that in the version I attended, the EM did a good job of walking the delicate road to follow between presenting the sympathic, strong Casca and not feeding the hecklers.

    I think a few statements about stopping scripters and dupers and the disruptive element and the doubters might have been turned in his favour :)

    Well, he COULD have taken credit for the flaming houses of those "traitors to the realm" in Luna.

    But I suspect a certain firelord would have been mildly annoyed lol

    You should've seen the cheers Casca got on Pacific when he talked of luring folks back to Britain from Luna. A shrewd political move. ;)

    I'm waiting for the transcript, as I could only read every couple of lines due to, ermm, "crowd participation" (participating in what I'm not sure, I don't have enough testosterone I'm afraid)

    Anyone tell me how to save the journal? I ticked the boxes in the game, but not sure tht it worked, or I ticked the right ones! =P

    I will follow those that I trust.....

    The mouse would be one of them....... Casca would NOT......

    But I will appear to follow him as I'm watching and scrutinizing his every move and what was that he said about tax??????

    I don't trust this fellow..... I don't know what sort of virtues he follows...... being a man of virtue myself I must watch this one carefully..... He has not proven to me his worth.... He has some mighty large boots to fill so to speak.... and well..... I always liked Lord British...... Still follow "his" virtues..... those he taught us to believe in and follow.
