Zippo: Ello m'Lord Merlynna: Hiye Elvin Archor: in my days as ive traveled through my life Elvin Archor: ive noticed as im sure u have Elvin Archor: an encroaching darkness Elvin Archor: a tainted world Elvin Archor: since i saw the ways of old fade Elvin Archor: i vowed to never let it die Elvin Archor: in all my efforts and business Elvin Archor: ive always been honest Elvin Archor: just Elvin Archor: fair Elvin Archor: and i do it to the best of my ability Elvin Archor: ive noticed in recent days Elvin Archor: that there is a lack of leadership in our direct lands Elvin Archor: and i feel it is a duty of mine, due to the public office i already hold Elvin Archor: to bring that sense Elvin Archor: ive talked with Iron about the devided lands Elvin Archor: and since ive always inforced only good honest members for ED Elvin Archor: i would trust any one of them Elvin Archor: so due to our size i am planning to bring back the virtues in Elvin Archor: Luna, Skara, and Help tame Umbra Elvin Archor: we would like to be able to keep a eye on Doom Merlynna: I am confused, sir. Elvin Archor: so i would like to announce my candidacy Elvin Archor: for Governor of Malas Joylah: *lifts a slender brow mildly* Dragon Edge: We don't have any control Of Malas Elvin Archor: and Skara if it would be allowed by the council Elvin Archor: i can give u my work Elvin Archor: word Galen: Depending on who you ask...Malas is either a colony of the Crown, or an independent state. Galen: So we really don't have anything to do with that either way.... Elvin Archor: well then Elvin Archor: im declaring the Governor of Malas Elvin Archor: then Merlynna: *looks kinda stunned* Galen: There was a government called the Malas Confederation. Then recently, Jackson: I thought you were the Governer of Moonglow sir. Elvin Archor: if u who me? Elvin Archor: who me? Merlynna: Didn't someone else Proclaim that Malas Title a while back? Galen: some fellow whose name I forget, but he's part of the government, higher up, Galen: called Malas a colony of Britannia. Elvin Archor: well who ever it was Galen: So it's a bit...Uncertain. Elvin Archor: has not stood time IronHorse: here here Merlynna: Could be, seems we have someone doing it every few months. Elvin Archor: well Buzz Aldridge: And if I may... Elvin Archor: as i can show through my work in ED Buzz Aldridge: The 8th seat, representing Skara Brae... Buzz Aldridge: has not been declared empty Buzz Aldridge: It is still officially Buzz Aldridge: held by Lady Wysteria Elvin Archor: was not looking for the council position Elvin Archor: of council Elvin Archor: only Mayor Buzz Aldridge: I see... Elvin Archor: i like working with the people Elvin Archor: i want to repopulate these cities Galen: A suggestion if I might? Elvin Archor: and bring patriotism to our world again Elvin Archor: plz Galen: The High Council does NOT control the local governments....However, Joylah: Obviously Galen: because we are prominent people in our communities, Galen: the local governments find it convenient to work with us. Galen: So, given that.....What I suggest is that Rick: Run for the office and let the people vote. Galen: you let us settle the matter of the 8th Seat first.....Then whomever occupies it, Galen: can assist you or whomever in setting up a local government there? Galen: It's the reverse of how it'd have worked years ago, I know. Galen: But times have changed. Buzz Aldridge: *nods* Galen: Does that sound good, Elvin? Elvin Archor: yes Galen: Thank you. Elvin Archor: so for clerification Elvin Archor: oh nvm Elvin Archor: hehe Elvin Archor: well i would like to say Zippo: *strokes hally* Elvin Archor: i am already to making a effort to get involved with local officials in each city Elvin Archor: well thank u for hearing me Leeda: Thank You elvin Galen: *salutes* Buzz Aldridge: *smiles* IronHorse: three cheers for the new governor of Malas Merlynna: *smiles* Leeda: Good Luck Merlynna: Aye Elvin Archor: and i hope u keep in mind that all my effort will be for the best of our world Elvin Archor: and always have been Isak Tangretti: here here Thrand Graywolf: Good luck with Umbra Dragon Edge: *nods* Buzz Aldridge: This is certainly an enthusiastic group tonight *smiles* Buzz Aldridge: Would anyone else care to speak tonight?
