    Annabel Lee looked at the small sketch again, and let out another huge laugh; yes this was the sort of thing she'd hoped to see! Apparently the King had been given the sketch by someone hiding in the crowd at the Council Du Roi, who'd then ran away rather quickly... and not surprisingly, as it was rather a cheeky cartoon indeed. But that's the free press for you! And as a historian of democracy, Miss Lee rather hoped to encourage more of it. And, gothic skirts twirling in sheer naughty merriment at the thought, taking an advert out in the Trinsic Beacon would be deliciously naughty way to get it painted on a larger canvas too. Getting out a quill and ink, Annabel quickly wrote;

    "Wanted, someone to paint the following scene as a larger image;

    A Sketch, By Unsigned

    *the picture shows a man with the features of a fat blackthorn on his throne. His face is red and puffy as if from
    too much drink and his mouth and shirt are dirty and full of grease. He is dressed in a jester suit with a big jester cap with big bells on his head and a chicken leg in his right hand as his sceptre.

    people looking bored and half asleep are around him, trying to seem alert and fighting falling asleep

    The picture is signed 'Our High Lord and his Council at work'

    Submissions will receive 3 Archivist Points, and the best image as selected by Miss Lee, C/o Castle Blackthorn will be awarded 10 points, and thus a guaranteed promotion and sash declaring their beginning upon this highly respectable career!"

    Rubbing her hands wickedly, Annabel even wondered if they could do a wandering Art Tour displaying The Fat Blackthorns across the Realm...

    Basically, a player gave me a book, and I thought it would be fun to see if anyone could actually draw the scene; any artists out there? ;)
