Welcome back your Royal Highness Lanfear: king Ma Nerva: hehe Lew: *paces* Lanfear: we were told you were inside King Blackthorn: *puts a single sheet of paper on the table* Raina Cold Eyes: who said that Summer: hello Echo: good evening my liege Summer: Gov lew King Blackthorn: I do not walk with dishonored knights. Lew: Hail summer King Blackthorn: So I walked myself in. Raina Cold Eyes: what Raina Cold Eyes: explain please sir Ajiba: Oh... snap? King Blackthorn: I have much to say. Lew: *listening* Summer: well i dont wish to sit next to Dishonored Governors King Blackthorn: I ask everyone to wait to say their piece until I am finished. Summer: Yes King Echo: *nods* King Blackthorn: First off, I am of the conclusion that tonights meeting will focus on the election in King Blackthorn: New Magincia. Lew: *nods head& King Blackthorn: So let me be clear of my position on the matter. Summer: *nods* King Blackthorn: The Crown is of the opinion that the Election in New Magincia was stolen. Lanfear: true that Lew: *nods head in agreement* King Blackthorn: Forces either stole the election FOR the elected governor... King Blackthorn: Or forces stole the election FROM the incumbant. King Blackthorn: Either way, the crown is of the opinion that the election was stolen and that... King Blackthorn: The process was circumvented, dishonorably. King Blackthorn: HOWEVER. King Blackthorn: I have no proof, nor have I heard anything other than hearsay and conjecture. Ajiba: Can we have some concept explained of how this was supposedly acheived? King Blackthorn: That Ma Nerva was involved. Beordred: Who Speaks out of turn? Ajiba: meep King Blackthorn: Just because it was stolen, it is impossible to know if it was stolen for or from. King Blackthorn: Ma Nerva has run in every election since we begun this experiment. Red Beard: Dium Prostra Ma Nerva: aye King Blackthorn: And, dispite the... issues. King Blackthorn: I am willing to let her try. King Blackthorn: Note, a guarded, try. Summer: *shakes head* King Blackthorn: Ma Nerva, I am worried that this is the first time you have entered this chamber. King Blackthorn: And dispite your eagerness to sit in these seats... Lew: *drops head* King Blackthorn: You have never attened a meeting previously. Ma Nerva: alone only King Blackthorn: And thought the meeting was in the throne room. King Blackthorn: In spite of all of this, I am willing to let you continue as Governor. Ma Nerva: i wished to see u in ur throne King Blackthorn: I will say, you have a lot of work to do, to gain my trust. Summer: *pfffff* Ma Nerva: thank you my leige King Blackthorn: and the trust of the other governors... Ma Nerva: i wish the respect of magincia only tho ill try King Blackthorn: Tonight I will let you speak first, so that you may address this council while they are at attention King Blackthorn: Measure your words carefully, I fear the room is against you.

Ma Nerva: thank you Ma Nerva: to those whom know me not my name is ma nerva Ma Nerva: as the king mentioned i have ran every taime in new magincia Ma Nerva: i am glad to be here dispite rumours Lew: *scratches head* Ma Nerva: i bow to the wisdom of the king and wish to lead new mag to a new age Summer: *turns back* Ma Nerva: thank you Lew: Sire, may I speak Summer: *turns back towards the king* King Blackthorn: Old friend Lew. King Blackthorn: Before you respond and we get into the thick of this.

Lew: speaking rather of her island than this council SunWolf: *thinks so far only Quacklebush is siting at the council* Ug Rankbreath: *smiles at dwarves* King Blackthorn: The two seemed bitter enemies. Lew: aye King Blackthorn: And the city of Yew found itself to be nearly torn apart. King Blackthorn: Until the two men made their peace. Quacklebush: i do fancy these comby chairs King Blackthorn: And Yew was the better for it. Lew: but sire in that electoin, the names were on the stone Lew: I can be witness that Gov Nails name was on that stone Lew: and wsa in the front of the votes King Blackthorn: I know, I have already stated I believe that the stone was tampered with and the election stolen. Lew: up until black magic was cast King Blackthorn: However, I have no proof that Ma Nerva was involved, other than conjecture. Lew: *shakes head* King Blackthorn: I cannot and will not act on rumors and circumstantial evidence. Lew: I am not saying that she was responsible Summer: *bangs hand on table knocking over the kings candle* Red Beard: If they think it was rigged do it again let the people decide who they want King Blackthorn: What I would like to see is Governor Warstein and Ma Nerva work together for the good of King Blackthorn: New Magincia. the town drunk: *applauds* King Blackthorn: This isnt about who sits in a chair, its who does the job, who can represent their people.
