    Queen Mother Calls Her Supporters To Rally Around Queen Dawn
    By WarderDragon

    You hear a sound, three loud knocks upon your door. You stand from your reading chair, or perhaps you slip out from under the sheets, blinking back weariness, every muscle in your body demanding that you sit back down and ignore it. Its late. The days events have weighed heavily upon your mind. The Coronation of Her Majesty, Queen Dawn. The Assassination of Captain Commander Nystad. What now?

    But you force yourself up and approach the door. You hear the hoof beats, the snort of a powerful beast, charging off into the night. By the time you reach the door and peer out into the moonlight, black stallion and shadow-clad rider have disappeared into the trees, around a hill, or perhaps into the city. How odd, you think to yourself. Who would wake you up at this hour, only to ride off before you had the chance to enter?

    And then you see it. A ruby-hilted stilleto, buried deep in your door. A folded letter pinned there, stirred by the cold nights wind.

    Against your better judgement, you pull the dagger free. A beautiful weapon, one not so readily discarded. You unfold the vellum envelope. You observe the flowing script, a calligraphers hand. And you, despite your weariness, read what is written within.

    Knights of the Royal Guard and Diplomats of the Independent Kingdoms,

    I have been asked to deliver you a message.

    Her Majesty, The Queen Mother Lady Fahnzjell, Dowager Queen of Britannia and High Seat of House British, has asked that all her loyal subjects and faithful followers offer their support and allegience to Her Grace, The Queen Stewardess Elect Lady Dawn the Brave, By the Grace of the Light, Defender of the People, Protector of the Realm.

    Lady Fahnzjell has expressed no designs upon the Throne of Akalabeth. Only to retain her title and her ties to House British, which were established by right of her marriage to the True Sovereign, His Majesty Lord Cantabrigian British. The Queen Mother's only concern is for her people, and has expressed faith in Lady Dawn as a Defender of Justice and Keeper of the Principles. She will offer her council to Lady Dawn, should Her Grace wish it.

    Those Royal Knights who have sworn oaths to defend the Throne of Akalabeth are asked to continue their sacred duty, and to protect she who currently sits on the throne.

    Light Save The Queen,

    Sir Nicholas Casval Tarrant,
    Knight of the Royal Guard.

    ((Out Of Character: Greetings. Please note that the Lady Fahnzjell British, otherwise known as the Widow, is a player persona in no way directly related to the global storyline. She is a Baja fixture, part of several player-run storylines that involve the Independent Kingdoms and Operation Royal Flush. This was a way for the character, who had made the claim before Lady Dawn had returned, to relinquish her claim to the new Queen while still maintaining the integrity of her backstory. If you have any questions about this, please send me a private message and I will explain in more depth.))

    Oh, wow. I didn't know the backstory of the Widow.

    No wonder she's so important...

    I guess this means that Royal Flush members and the Independent Kingdoms will have to go their seperate ways, because from what I saw at the Coronation, there are groups who want nothing to do with Queen Dawn.

    Hail Folks,

    Lady Fahnzjell aka Lady British came of recent days to be known by many on Baja as the Widow. Her recent claim, or revelation of her past and Heritage, according to her claims remain as yet unverified. She has clearly declared, however, that she makes no claim upon the Crown nor Throne of Lord British.

    Sherry the Mouse is supposed to have first paw knowledge of this Royal Marriage. Furthermore, I have reason to believe others also have first-hand knowledge pertaining to this marriage.

    It is my hope that Sherry the Mouse will be sought out and found. It is also my hope that these claims may be confirmed beyond doubt or question, or clearly disproven.

    Truth must be set free pertaining to these claims and happenings.

    As to the "independent" kingdoms. Let there be no doubt or question that Britannia has but one Monarch. The Realm is currently under the rule of Queen Dawn. All within Her Realm enjoy such freedom and liberty which Her protection and forebearance provide them.

    Queen Dawn will wield such power and control as circumstances and citizens actions require. Those who look favorably upon Her Kindness, and live peacefully and lawfully with their neighbors, shall find Her Rule comfortable and welcome. Those who sow chaos and seek to pursue evil intentions shall find Her Rule swift, Just, and final.

    I shall do all in my ability to discover what is True, and to lend such support, counsel, and arms to whatever needs my Queen may have, and to whatever requests may come.

    Lord Elladan Faeryn, Legendary Paladin of Trinsic

    Now I can support Queen Dawn In-Character, but I was not going to until the Widow's status was resolved fairly. WildStar as a character has reason to be suspious of any new monarch due to her experiences with Casca, so Queen Dawn is going to have to earn her trust.

    *nods*

    Alot of roleplayers came to trust the Widow over the past couple of months, so this letter needed to happen so that those characters could rally beneath Dawn.

    I'm not sure how to put this nicely....

    so i'm just going to say it..

    We don't tell you how to PVM.
    We don't tell you how to PVP.
    Don't tell us how and what to RP.

    We resolved this issue IC for RPers and all your doing in keeping it an issue let it go.

    Gypsies do not follow the throne... thats why were gypsies....

    Nowhere have I told anyone "what and how" to roleplay. Which issue do you consider resolved? I have not asked gypsies to follow the Throne. However, there is but one Ruler in Britainnia, and all the Paladin did was state a fact. We all live and prosper by the will of the Monarch.

    Nothing more was intended to be conveyed by my words than that.

    I made a typo in my original report. The Widows name is Lady Fazhnjell, not Lady Fahnzjell.

    I may very well be mistaken, but I think he meant that the Kingdom of Britannia (not Sosaria) is under the rule of One Monarch (Dawn), rather than Two (Dawn and Fazhnjell).

    Queen Dawn has even confirmed in her opening speech that she doesn't intend to encroach upon the independence of separate realms such as The Kingdom of Dawn (Dawn, Avalon, Duskwood, & the Hordelands), The Samlethe (Scythe & Wind), The Empire of Zento, or any other non-Britannian State.

    WarderDragon is correct. My only meaning is that the Throne of Lord British seated one person at a time. It wasn't a couch.

    Elladan has nothing but love, admiration, and respect for the Widow (aka Lady British and that hard to spell other name).

    Elladan is equally admiring and respectful of any and all Player created "towns" etc.

    The Widow has made it clear that she seeks only recognition of who she is.

    And Queen Dawn has become, for now, our new Monarch. I hope she reigns long, wisely and well.

    All that said, Elladan shall ever hope for, and long for, the return of our beloved King, Lord British. I know this may be unlikely, perhaps not even possible.

    But in Sosaria, that place many now call Britannia, I believe in the impossible.

    I love role playing. Whenever I am able, I try to speak and act IC in character. In role play I fully understand that many folks may take their roles in many directions.

    Lastly, where ever our characters are able to work together toward common goals, and have fun while doing so, I support this.

    Sadly, Trammel and the other non-feluccan facets place limits on our disagreements becoming physical. And Felucca is even worse, for while physical conflict is possible there, others who live only to ruin other folks days and other folks play, interfere and disrupt to their warped and twisted hearts content.

    I hope I have been able to clarify my recent posts, and I hope I have not misunderstood any one else's meanings.

    Elladan
