(The following is a completely out-of-character post). One of my side characters, Rorik, has won the Governorship of Jhelom unopposed for this present term. Just to clarify for anyone who might be curious, he is not affiliated with the Rangers of Spiritwood in any manner whatsoever, he's a Jhelom-based, Ultima Fighter type I've been playing awhile outside my main guild. Anyway, while I will be keeping the in-character specifics of his governing to in-game, I do want to be accessible to people as a player and on a community-level, so I do encourage anyone who has any ideas or requests to please contact me either here on Stratics (either on this forum or via PM), or at ICQ #6082388). This includes role-playing interaction, event ideas, or trade deals. In fact, I'd really like to know what preference citizens of Jhelom might have for the trade deals as I do intend to keep it fully funded throughout the term. And this post is directed towards everyone who plays a Jhelom citizen, regardless of play style or any previous interaction or non-interaction we may have had, for good or bad. So please feel free to contact me as needed.
