    [14/09/07][18:03:54] [King Blackthorn]: Good evening.
    [14/09/07][18:03:59] [Alfonso]: My Lord
    [14/09/07][18:04:02] [Amelia]: *stands*
    [14/09/07][18:04:03] [Alfonso]: *bows*
    [14/09/07][18:04:03] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you all for coming tonight.
    [14/09/07][18:04:04] [Thom]: Evening sire.
    [14/09/07][18:04:15] [Pandora]: *bows with respect*
    [14/09/07][18:04:17] [King Blackthorn]: I trust your trip here was uneventful.
    [14/09/07][18:04:17] [Mare Jade Sky]: evening good sir
    [14/09/07][18:04:18] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][18:04:49] [King Blackthorn]: *sits down and unrolls a scroll*
    [14/09/07][18:04:49] [Kalmar Erikkson]: *takes a seat, resting shield on knee*
    [14/09/07][18:04:59] [King Blackthorn]: *takes a moment to read notes*
    [14/09/07][18:05:01] [Kalmar Erikkson]: *smiles to Capt. Alfonso*
    [14/09/07][18:05:10] [Merida Douglas]: *crosses legs..keeps Amelia's hand in hers*
    [14/09/07][18:05:22] [King Blackthorn]: *takes notice of the empty seats with a slight look of dismay*
    [14/09/07][18:05:27] [King Blackthorn]: Well.
    [14/09/07][18:05:29] [Pandora]: *sighs*
    [14/09/07][18:05:37] [King Blackthorn]: It seems we are missing a few Governors yet again.
    [14/09/07][18:05:53] [Thom]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:05:53] [King Blackthorn]: I did, however, receive word from the Governor of Minoc, who has fallen ill.
    [14/09/07][18:06:01] [Pandora]: Sire my apologies for last meeting, but I did send word.
    [14/09/07][18:06:04] [King Blackthorn]: He was unable to make the journey.
    [14/09/07][18:06:08] [King Blackthorn]: *nods to Pandora*
    [14/09/07][18:06:09] [King Blackthorn]: Of course.
    [14/09/07][18:06:16] [Pandora]: *lets out a sigh a relief*
    [14/09/07][18:06:18] [Pandora]: *relaxes*
    [14/09/07][18:06:23] [King Blackthorn]: This, then, will be the first thing I wish to discuss.
    [14/09/07][18:06:32] [King Blackthorn]: It was talked about at the last meeting, and I wish to make it official now.
    [14/09/07][18:06:33] [Pandora]: At least I won't be pawed at this eve'.
    [14/09/07][18:06:45] [King Blackthorn]: Pardon?
    [14/09/07][18:06:50] [Pandora]: *shakes head*
    [14/09/07][18:06:53] [Pandora]: Nothing sire..
    [14/09/07][18:07:00] [Pandora]: *looking to Gov. of Minoc's empty seat*
    [14/09/07][18:07:04] [King Blackthorn]: *nods, slightly confused*
    [14/09/07][18:07:04] [Alfonso]: *mumles something about Ethan*
    [14/09/07][18:07:12] [Merida Douglas]: *shakes head slowly*
    [14/09/07][18:07:23] [King Blackthorn]: As we talked about at our last meeting...
    [14/09/07][18:07:36] [Mario Trovario]: *Shakes head in disgust*
    [14/09/07][18:07:38] [King Blackthorn]: It would seem necessary to institute a new rule.
    [14/09/07][18:07:49] [Wild]: *look od dismay*
    [14/09/07][18:08:02] [King Blackthorn]: Henceforth, any Governor who misses three consecutive meetings shall be removed from their Office
    [14/09/07][18:08:22] [King Blackthorn]: I received quite a few letters regarding this issue since last we met
    [14/09/07][18:08:24] [Pandora]: *jots that down on her meeting notes*
    [14/09/07][18:08:37] [King Blackthorn]: And tonight is only further indication that this is necessary.
    [14/09/07][18:08:50] [Thom]: Indeed.
    [14/09/07][18:09:04] [King Blackthorn]: Exceptions may be made, in dire circumstances.
    [14/09/07][18:09:11] [King Blackthorn]: Though I expect those to be few and far between.
    [14/09/07][18:09:30] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:09:35] [King Blackthorn]: The manner in which I will select a Governor's replacement will be handled on a case by case basis.
    [14/09/07][18:09:56] [King Blackthorn]: Likely, however, it will involve an interview of potential candidates.
    [14/09/07][18:10:27] [King Blackthorn]: An interview that you all
    [14/09/07][18:10:33] [King Blackthorn]: *gestures to other Governors*
    [14/09/07][18:10:39] [King Blackthorn]: Will have input in.
    [14/09/07][18:10:41] [Pandora]: *scribbling away*
    [14/09/07][18:10:45] [King Blackthorn]: Though the final decision will be mine.
    [14/09/07][18:11:04] [King Blackthorn]: Does this sound reasonable?
    [14/09/07][18:11:08] [Mare Jade Sky]: aye
    [14/09/07][18:11:11] [Wild]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:11:21] [King Blackthorn]: Excellent.
    [14/09/07][18:11:26] [Nyre Lars]: *Sits here sharpening his arrows*
    [14/09/07][18:11:26] [Thom]: I fail to see how our input would be needed for another cities governor honestly.
    [14/09/07][18:11:35] [Pandora]: Indeed, sire.
    [14/09/07][18:11:53] [King Blackthorn]: *thinks for a moment*
    [14/09/07][18:12:10] [Pandora]: I'd certainly like to at least hear from potential candidates.
    [14/09/07][18:12:13] [King Blackthorn]: I would value your counsul in such matters.
    [14/09/07][18:12:22] [King Blackthorn]: Though, as I said, I would make the final decision.
    [14/09/07][18:12:25] [Thom]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:12:27] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:12:31] [King Blackthorn]: And your participation would be by no means mandatory.
    [14/09/07][18:12:54] [King Blackthorn]: Nor will it reflect poorly or positively upon your own standing as Governor.
    [14/09/07][18:12:58] [Thom]: I was just unsure to the point, but I won't hesitate to offer advice when it's asked for.
    [14/09/07][18:13:06] [Thom]: *grins*
    [14/09/07][18:13:09] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][18:13:14] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you, Governor Thom.
    [14/09/07][18:13:25] [Pandora]: You have my support, my liege
    [14/09/07][18:13:32] [Mare Jade Sky]: my as well
    [14/09/07][18:13:35] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][18:13:45] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you both, it will be needed I'm sure.
    [14/09/07][18:13:57] [King Blackthorn]: Now, a moment ago I mentioned receiving letters regarding this issue.
    [14/09/07][18:14:25] [King Blackthorn]: In fact, I have received MANY letters in recent weeks, and I would like to address
    [14/09/07][18:14:30] [King Blackthorn]: some of the issues raised in a few of them.
    [14/09/07][18:14:53] [King Blackthorn]: *straightens stack of parchments and reads the first one*
    [14/09/07][18:15:27] [King Blackthorn]: Ah.
    [14/09/07][18:15:31] [King Blackthorn]: Trade deals.
    [14/09/07][18:15:36] [King Blackthorn]: This was a popular one.
    [14/09/07][18:15:58] [King Blackthorn]: Some Governors have failed to secure trade deals on a consistent basis
    [14/09/07][18:16:17] [King Blackthorn]: And a number of citizens of these affected towns have reached out to me to
    [14/09/07][18:16:40] [King Blackthorn]: In hopes that I put more pressure on said Governors.
    [14/09/07][18:16:40] [Pandora]: *sighs*
    [14/09/07][18:17:03] [King Blackthorn]: I have indeed spoken to two of the Governors who are specifically named
    [14/09/07][18:17:23] [King Blackthorn]: And have found that the problem generally does not lie in any shirking of responsibility
    [14/09/07][18:17:39] [King Blackthorn]: But rather that their own pockets are quite shallow.
    [14/09/07][18:17:55] [King Blackthorn]: I have pointed out, however, the efforts that others have made to raise funds for their coffers.
    [14/09/07][18:18:25] [Thom]: I would happily organize another trade deal auction if it would help.
    [14/09/07][18:18:33] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:18:36] [King Blackthorn]: *turns to Thom*
    [14/09/07][18:18:39] [TimberWolf]: *coughs*
    [14/09/07][18:18:45] [Pandora]: That was quite a bit of help.
    [14/09/07][18:18:46] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you, Governor, that would be appreciated.
    [14/09/07][18:18:59] [King Blackthorn]: The Governor of Minoc in particular would be interested
    [14/09/07][18:19:02] [Thom]: I'll get started right away then.
    [14/09/07][18:19:07] [King Blackthorn]: Or so he has communicated such to me.
    [14/09/07][18:19:08] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:19:26] [King Blackthorn]: Now, that being said...
    [14/09/07][18:19:27] [Catalina Erentzo]: *** mermurs toherself stupid 10 min. idle thing ***
    [14/09/07][18:19:51] [King Blackthorn]: I am not inclined at this time to make any economic sanction upon the service of any Governor.
    [14/09/07][18:20:16] [Alfonso]: *looks confused*
    [14/09/07][18:20:16] [King Blackthorn]: Failure to maintain a trade agreement, at this time, will not result in their termination
    [14/09/07][18:20:19] [King Blackthorn]: from this Council.
    [14/09/07][18:20:27] [Thom]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:20:43] [King Blackthorn]: This may be something to revisit in the future, however.
    [14/09/07][18:21:15] [King Blackthorn]: *looks through other letters*
    [14/09/07][18:21:32] [King Blackthorn]: Town moongates.
    [14/09/07][18:21:51] [King Blackthorn]: This is another subject I have received a number of inquiries about.
    [14/09/07][18:21:58] [Catalina Erentzo]: ??
    [14/09/07][18:22:01] [Pandora]: *looks over to Lord Bytor*
    [14/09/07][18:22:09] [Pandora]: *then to Gov. Mare*
    [14/09/07][18:22:13] [Pandora]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][18:22:16] [Bytor]: :)
    [14/09/07][18:22:25] [Kalmar Erikkson]: *whispers*
    [14/09/07][18:22:30] [King Blackthorn]: I have consulted with Kenneth, the Royal Mage of Transport
    [14/09/07][18:22:46] [Catalina Erentzo]: ???
    [14/09/07][18:23:12] [King Blackthorn]: And while he says it *may* be feasible at a future date, the existing network of moongates
    [14/09/07][18:23:23] [King Blackthorn]: Seems to be as much as we can handle, for now.
    [14/09/07][18:23:33] [Alfonso]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:23:37] [Mare Jade Sky]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:23:37] [King Blackthorn]: Should anything change in this regard, you will be informed.
    [14/09/07][18:23:38] [Va'lis Razele]: *Raises a finger up*
    [14/09/07][18:23:49] [Bytor]: :)
    [14/09/07][18:23:54] [King Blackthorn]: The crystal portal, Governor Thom?
    [14/09/07][18:23:56] [King Blackthorn]: *chuckles*
    [14/09/07][18:24:09] [Thom]: Sire?
    [14/09/07][18:24:21] [King Blackthorn]: Ah, I"m sorry. I thought that was your hand.
    [14/09/07][18:24:36] [Thom]: No... but I would like to discuss that if you had an answer to it.
    [14/09/07][18:24:38] [Thom]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][18:24:42] [King Blackthorn]: But since I mentioned it, the answer is much the same regarding a change to how
    [14/09/07][18:24:44] [King Blackthorn]: that artifact works.
    [14/09/07][18:24:48] [Thom]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:24:51] [Thom]: Understood.
    [14/09/07][18:25:02] [King Blackthorn]: Governor Va'lis?
    [14/09/07][18:25:02] [Thom]: I'll manage i'm sure.
    [14/09/07][18:25:16] [Va'lis Razele]: On this topic of additional moongates...
    [14/09/07][18:25:30] [Va'lis Razele]: It almost seems a worthless idea
    [14/09/07][18:25:41] [King Blackthorn]: How so?
    [14/09/07][18:25:57] [Va'lis Razele]: Magical transportation is already in large abundance
    [14/09/07][18:26:07] [Pandora]: *smiles, making notes*
    [14/09/07][18:26:12] [Mare Jade Sky]: not true
    [14/09/07][18:26:18] [Va'lis Razele]: Oh it is true
    [14/09/07][18:26:26] [Wild]: *stares at Va'lis*
    [14/09/07][18:26:37] [Va'lis Razele]: Anyone can find a runebook if they do not have the skills
    [14/09/07][18:26:45] [King Blackthorn]: *settles back and studies Governors Mare and Va'lis' exchange*
    [14/09/07][18:26:51] [Nyre Lars]: This coming from a governor who has a moongate to her city
    [14/09/07][18:26:55] [Va'lis Razele]: Even...Paladins...can recall of sorts
    [14/09/07][18:27:03] [Wild]: *grins*
    [14/09/07][18:27:04] [Mare Jade Sky]: i can recall
    [14/09/07][18:27:06] [Mare Jade Sky]: but
    [14/09/07][18:27:11] [Mare Jade Sky]: i dont all way
    [14/09/07][18:27:24] [Mare Jade Sky]: and i find it unfair
    [14/09/07][18:27:40] [Mare Jade Sky]: that my town has to use the minco moongate for member
    [14/09/07][18:27:44] [Mare Jade Sky]: that cant recall
    [14/09/07][18:27:46] [Mare Jade Sky]: it unfair
    [14/09/07][18:27:48] [Mare Jade Sky]: for them
    [14/09/07][18:27:51] [Amelia]: *halfway raises her hand*
    [14/09/07][18:27:56] [Va'lis Razele]: Magic is already being misused in various ways
    [14/09/07][18:28:01] [Va'lis Razele]: No need for further misuse
    [14/09/07][18:28:24] [King Blackthorn]: While I agree with your caution about the misuse of magic, Va'lis.
    [14/09/07][18:28:28] [Pandora]: *raises an eyebrow*
    [14/09/07][18:28:40] [Wild]: *raises both eyebrows*
    [14/09/07][18:28:45] [Kalmar Erikkson]: *shifts moving the shield to his other knee*
    [14/09/07][18:28:56] [King Blackthorn]: I believe that an improvement to our moongates would be beneficial to many of our citizens.
    [14/09/07][18:29:05] [Va'lis Razele]: Maybe, maybe not
    [14/09/07][18:29:11] [Pandora]: I would agree.
    [14/09/07][18:29:16] [King Blackthorn]: Those who do not have magic talents may still use a runebook, it is true.
    [14/09/07][18:29:16] [Va'lis Razele]: But I find if I do not disagree with you, everyone else will just smile and nod along
    [14/09/07][18:29:17] [Amelia]: *puts hand down*
    [14/09/07][18:29:17] [Mare Jade Sky]: i think it would
    [14/09/07][18:29:19] [Va'lis Razele]: *chuckles*
    [14/09/07][18:29:22] [Pandora]: In this case of the town of Vesper, they are long overdue.
    [14/09/07][18:29:46] [King Blackthorn]: But those who cannot afford such a luxury are left without means of quick transport.
    [14/09/07][18:29:48] [King Blackthorn]: Ah!
    [14/09/07][18:30:15] [King Blackthorn]: Well, on that I will agree as well - sometimes being adversarial for its own sake...
    [14/09/07][18:30:18] [King Blackthorn]: can be a good thing.
    [14/09/07][18:30:21] [King Blackthorn]: *chuckles*
    [14/09/07][18:30:28] [Mare Jade Sky]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:30:41] [King Blackthorn]: In any event, no changes will be made soon.
    [14/09/07][18:30:50] [King Blackthorn]: Though it may one day be a possibility.
    [14/09/07][18:31:10] [King Blackthorn]: There were other matters brought to me attention
    [14/09/07][18:31:11] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:31:28] [King Blackthorn]: They are best left, however to Captain Kanlocke and Detective Thorpe.
    [14/09/07][18:31:49] [King Blackthorn]: Who I will be meeting with this evening to discuss scheduling a number of matters
    [14/09/07][18:32:22] [King Blackthorn]: Including the questioning of a prisoner of the Rangers.
    [14/09/07][18:32:33] [Merida Douglas]: *covers her mouth with a slight yawn*
    [14/09/07][18:32:36] [King Blackthorn]: Now, I have talked enough for now.
    [14/09/07][18:32:47] [King Blackthorn]: Governor Mare.
    [14/09/07][18:32:58] [King Blackthorn]: Do you have any business you wish to discuss?
    [14/09/07][18:33:46] [King Blackthorn]: Mare?
    [14/09/07][18:33:52] [Mare Jade Sky]: well i do have some plans to show you on what my self and my time have come up
    [14/09/07][18:34:00] [Mare Jade Sky]: with for vesper

    [14/09/07][18:34:59] [King Blackthorn]: Or would you prefer to have them delivered to me in writing?
    [14/09/07][18:35:22] [Mare Jade Sky]: i can give them to you now if you like of tell you some of them and have the rest
    [14/09/07][18:35:31] [Mare Jade Sky]: drop off at ur mail box
    [14/09/07][18:35:59] [King Blackthorn]: Why don't you give us a brief overview of what you have planned, and deliver the details
    [14/09/07][18:36:02] [King Blackthorn]: to me later?
    [14/09/07][18:36:06] [Mare Jade Sky]: ok

    [14/09/07][18:36:55] [Mare Jade Sky]: is much need as well
    [14/09/07][18:36:55] [Pandora]: *nods*

    [14/09/07][18:37:20] [Catalina Erentzo]: *** mermurs toherself stupid 10 min. idle thing ***

    [14/09/07][18:37:46] [King Blackthorn]: *cocks head to the side slightly*
    [14/09/07][18:37:47] [Catalina Erentzo]: :)
    [14/09/07][18:37:53] [King Blackthorn]: Does Vesper not already have a sufficient dock?
    [14/09/07][18:38:11] [TimberWolf]: ya right beside their moon gate
    [14/09/07][18:38:16] [Mare Jade Sky]: it be a dock for are navey sir

    [14/09/07][18:39:22] [Pandora]: *thinks*
    [14/09/07][18:39:24] [Catalina Erentzo]: + now days alot people have Large Britanyin ships
    [14/09/07][18:39:42] [Catalina Erentzo]: regular citys docks aren't big enuff for the large ships
    [14/09/07][18:39:52] [Alfonso]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:40:03] [Catalina Erentzo]: most docks only have 1 good docking spot
    [14/09/07][18:40:06] [King Blackthorn]: *glances to side towards citizen seating*
    [14/09/07][18:40:14] [Wild]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][18:40:18] [Catalina Erentzo]: for Britain for example
    [14/09/07][18:40:26] [Pandora]: *looks back*
    [14/09/07][18:40:29] [Pandora]: We have two docks.
    [14/09/07][18:40:30] [King Blackthorn]: *looks back to Governor Mare*
    [14/09/07][18:40:46] [Kalmar Erikkson]: *nods, hmph*
    [14/09/07][18:40:56] [Mare Jade Sky]: that is the most of it sir
    [14/09/07][18:40:58] [King Blackthorn]: It is true that the shipwrights have been quite productive in recent years.
    [14/09/07][18:41:07] [King Blackthorn]: And, as a result, we now have larger ships.
    [14/09/07][18:41:18] [Mare Jade Sky]: aye
    [14/09/07][18:41:19] [Pandora]: Technological advances sire.
    [14/09/07][18:41:37] [King Blackthorn]: That being said, even if the Vesper's dock is not quite ideal, it is still a dock.
    [14/09/07][18:41:49] [Catalina Erentzo]: granted we haven't progreesed into useing Nuclear power yet :p
    [14/09/07][18:41:53] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:41:54] [King Blackthorn]: The towns of both Minoc, and Yew, have been waiting for some time for theirs.
    [14/09/07][18:41:58] [Catalina Erentzo]: we still useing wind power
    [14/09/07][18:41:59] [Pandora]: Minoc's yet to see their dock.
    [14/09/07][18:42:05] [King Blackthorn]: *nods to Pandora*
    [14/09/07][18:42:07] [Pandora]: Priorities.
    [14/09/07][18:42:15] [Pandora]: And Yew as well.
    [14/09/07][18:42:26] [King Blackthorn]: Once the Royal Dockbuilders are able to solve that problem,
    [14/09/07][18:42:34] [King Blackthorn]: then perhaps we can introduce another to them.
    [14/09/07][18:42:45] [King Blackthorn]: I can assure you they are quite busy these days.
    [14/09/07][18:42:46] [Mare Jade Sky]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:43:12] [King Blackthorn]: *makes a few quick notes*
    [14/09/07][18:43:22] [King Blackthorn]: Please, send along those details when you have them.
    [14/09/07][18:43:30] [Mare Jade Sky]: yes sir
    [14/09/07][18:43:38] [King Blackthorn]: Though keep in mind what I've said regarding the docks.
    [14/09/07][18:43:48] [King Blackthorn]: *turns to Governor Va'lis*
    [14/09/07][18:44:03] [King Blackthorn]: How fairs Moonglow?
    [14/09/07][18:44:04] [Mare Jade Sky]: nods*
    [14/09/07][18:44:11] [Va'lis Razele]: Poorly sire
    [14/09/07][18:44:17] [King Blackthorn]: *frowns*
    [14/09/07][18:44:18] [Va'lis Razele]: We had an incident last week
    [14/09/07][18:44:46] [Pandora]: *mumbles to herself, "I bet you did."*
    [14/09/07][18:44:48] [Va'lis Razele]: A group of unknown individuals entered the Zoo sometime during the evening
    [14/09/07][18:45:06] [Va'lis Razele]: They broke open several exhibits, and made off with a fair amount of them
    [14/09/07][18:45:16] [Merida Douglas]: *smirks slightly*
    [14/09/07][18:45:26] [King Blackthorn]: *eyes widen slightly, followed by a sigh*
    [14/09/07][18:45:41] [King Blackthorn]: I take it they have not been retrieved?
    [14/09/07][18:45:51] [Va'lis Razele]: I have several mages looking into things
    [14/09/07][18:45:51] [Pandora]: Tampering with the zoo is a federal offense.
    [14/09/07][18:45:55] [Pandora]: *shakes head*
    [14/09/07][18:46:01] [Va'lis Razele]: But...We are not investigators
    [14/09/07][18:46:07] [Merida Douglas]: *mutters about "Well then theyre all screwed...."*
    [14/09/07][18:46:28] [Va'lis Razele]: Indeed, my own skills are more in the area of...well...Lets just say sneaking is not my thing
    [14/09/07][18:46:37] [King Blackthorn]: Hm.
    [14/09/07][18:46:40] [King Blackthorn]: I suppose not.
    [14/09/07][18:46:49] [Merida Douglas]: *snorts softly*
    [14/09/07][18:46:54] [Kalmar Erikkson]: *raises an eyebrow then looks to Capt. Alfonso*
    [14/09/07][18:46:57] [Va'lis Razele]: We were not prepared for such a thing to happen
    [14/09/07][18:47:01] [Kalmar Erikkson]: *back to Gov. Razele*
    [14/09/07][18:47:11] [King Blackthorn]: Detective Thorpe has his hands full at the moment. However...
    [14/09/07][18:47:11] [Va'lis Razele]: As most citizens seemed to enjoy the Zoo and visiting it
    [14/09/07][18:47:21] [King Blackthorn]: Of course.
    [14/09/07][18:47:54] [King Blackthorn]: If you could, please send a list detailing the animals that were taken.
    [14/09/07][18:48:00] [Va'lis Razele]: Of course
    [14/09/07][18:48:09] [Va'lis Razele]: We'd like the juvenile dragons back shortly
    [14/09/07][18:48:09] [King Blackthorn]: If he has a moment, I'll have Thorpe look into it.
    [14/09/07][18:48:32] [Catalina Erentzo]: ** looks like Moonlgow guards got caught with thier pants down **
    [14/09/07][18:48:35] [King Blackthorn]: *makes notes*
    [14/09/07][18:48:48] [Va'lis Razele]: Naturally we will be checking Magincia shortly
    [14/09/07][18:49:00] [King Blackthorn]: Than...
    [14/09/07][18:49:02] [King Blackthorn]: *pauses*
    [14/09/07][18:49:11] [Pandora]: Magincia?
    [14/09/07][18:49:23] [Va'lis Razele]: What better place to sell animals?
    [14/09/07][18:49:25] [King Blackthorn]: I'm not sure why that would be the natural course of action, unless you suspect
    [14/09/07][18:49:28] [King Blackthorn]: they are being sold there.
    [14/09/07][18:49:35] [Pandora]: Good point.
    [14/09/07][18:49:37] [King Blackthorn]: *nods in the affirmative*
    [14/09/07][18:49:38] [Va'lis Razele]: Dragons go for quite a bit of gold
    [14/09/07][18:49:55] [Pandora]: Specially the younglings.
    [14/09/07][18:50:13] [King Blackthorn]: As good a place as any to begin.
    [14/09/07][18:50:22] [Pandora]: *makes note*
    [14/09/07][18:50:23] [Va'lis Razele]: So if any here happen across any selling young animals...
    [14/09/07][18:50:27] [Va'lis Razele]: Please inform me.
    [14/09/07][18:50:34] [Wild]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:50:48] [King Blackthorn]: Very well. Was there anything else?
    [14/09/07][18:51:00] [Va'lis Razele]: Oh other than that, everything is going quite well.
    [14/09/07][18:51:27] [King Blackthorn]: Excellent.
    [14/09/07][18:51:43] [King Blackthorn]: Before I forget, though, I will need to speak with you for a moment
    [14/09/07][18:51:49] [King Blackthorn]: After we conclude the meeting.
    [14/09/07][18:51:53] [Va'lis Razele]: *Perks a brow*
    [14/09/07][18:51:56] [Va'lis Razele]: Of course
    [14/09/07][18:51:58] [King Blackthorn]: *looks to Thom*
    [14/09/07][18:52:02] [King Blackthorn]: And you as well, Governor.
    [14/09/07][18:52:06] [Thom]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][18:52:09] [King Blackthorn]: But first...
    [14/09/07][18:52:09] [Thom]: Of course sire.
    [14/09/07][18:52:12] [King Blackthorn]: *still looking at Thom*
    [14/09/07][18:52:16] [King Blackthorn]: What of Trinsic?
    [14/09/07][18:52:44] [Thom]: I have a few minor things that i'll send to you later for improvements to the training grounds
    [14/09/07][18:53:10] [King Blackthorn]: Very well.
    [14/09/07][18:53:31] [Thom]: I have been thinking a lot about barrier isle recently as well.
    [14/09/07][18:53:39] [King Blackthorn]: The one with the goats?
    [14/09/07][18:53:48] [Thom]: *chuckles*
    [14/09/07][18:53:51] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][18:53:55] [Thom]: Yes, among other things.
    [14/09/07][18:54:26] [Thom]: My main concern doesn't include the animals though.
    [14/09/07][18:54:48] [Thom]: I'd like to look into placing a lighthouse on the southern tip of it to help direct ships away from the isle.
    [14/09/07][18:54:59] [Thom]: When trying to dock with Trinsic.
    [14/09/07][18:55:14] [King Blackthorn]: *nods and makes a note*
    [14/09/07][18:55:38] [King Blackthorn]: A wise idea.
    [14/09/07][18:55:46] [Catalina Erentzo]: ** growls*
    [14/09/07][18:55:51] [King Blackthorn]: I shall speak with the Royal Architect.
    [14/09/07][18:56:07] [Thom]: Thank you.
    [14/09/07][18:56:13] [Catalina Erentzo]: i'm a veteran a sailing i don't need a light house
    [14/09/07][18:56:27] [King Blackthorn]: Though you may be required to gather a considerable amount of stone.
    [14/09/07][18:56:27] [Thom]: *glances back to Catalina*
    [14/09/07][18:56:38] [Thom]: You may not but not all sailers are as adept at it as you.
    [14/09/07][18:57:04] [King Blackthorn]: Very true.
    [14/09/07][18:57:16] [Pandora]: The same could be said of every city, then.
    [14/09/07][18:57:43] [Thom]: Every city has an island jutting into the approach of the dock?
    [14/09/07][18:57:59] [Alfonso]: *shakes head no*
    [14/09/07][18:58:27] [Catalina Erentzo]: but will agree that even brit is the worst to get into
    [14/09/07][18:58:30] [King Blackthorn]: I agree it would be more suitable for some, than others.
    [14/09/07][18:58:45] [Catalina Erentzo]: a light house brit would be good
    [14/09/07][18:58:52] [King Blackthorn]: Efforts may be better spent elsewhere in some cases.
    [14/09/07][18:58:56] [Pandora]: *thinks*
    [14/09/07][18:58:59] [Pandora]: Just about.
    [14/09/07][18:59:02] [Catalina Erentzo]: as it a tight entry to brit docks
    [14/09/07][18:59:29] [Merida Douglas]: *covers her mouth..Yawning once more*
    [14/09/07][18:59:32] [King Blackthorn]: *turns to the citizen's seating area, slightly irritated*
    [14/09/07][18:59:33] [Pandora]: I don't know of a landlocked city.
    [14/09/07][18:59:35] [Thom]: Just let me know what materials if it's approved
    [14/09/07][18:59:36] [TimberWolf]: *coughs*
    [14/09/07][18:59:40] [King Blackthorn]: *turns back to Thom*
    [14/09/07][18:59:42] [King Blackthorn]: Of course.
    [14/09/07][18:59:50] [King Blackthorn]: Was there anything else for now?
    [14/09/07][19:00:00] [Thom]: *shakes head*
    [14/09/07][19:00:01] [Thom]: No sire.
    [14/09/07][19:00:06] [King Blackthorn]: Very good.

    [14/09/07][19:00:18] [King Blackthorn]: *shifts in seat and turns to Pandora*
    [14/09/07][19:00:29] [Pandora]: *smiles wide at the King*
    [14/09/07][19:00:30] [King Blackthorn]: Governor. While I have many windows in my Castle, and do peer out of them from time to time...
    [14/09/07][19:00:47] [King Blackthorn]: How is Britain?
    [14/09/07][19:00:50] [King Blackthorn]: *chuckles*
    [14/09/07][19:01:13] [Pandora]: My King, I must say we have some dedicated citizens in our beloved capital.
    [14/09/07][19:01:50] [King Blackthorn]: You will find no argument here.
    [14/09/07][19:01:55] [Pandora]: They have been very involved and when I announced to them the construction for our small jail is
    [14/09/07][19:02:06] [Pandora]: underway, they were general estatic.
    [14/09/07][19:02:29] [Pandora]: I think we managed to convince our citizens of the need for a small building to accomodate
    [14/09/07][19:02:37] [Catalina Erentzo]: ?
    [14/09/07][19:02:55] [Pandora]: our Guard's ability to protect them even further.
    [14/09/07][19:03:18] [Pandora]: Some argued that it would be too intrusive but your suggestion of making it small went over well.
    [14/09/07][19:03:36] [King Blackthorn]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:03:45] [Pandora]: I trust you have the materials you need to break ground?
    [14/09/07][19:03:58] [King Blackthorn]: I have seen the plans the Architects have in mind
    [14/09/07][19:04:10] [King Blackthorn]: And I believe it an appropriate construction, and location.
    [14/09/07][19:04:23] [King Blackthorn]: Yes, I have received the necessary materials for construction, thank you.
    [14/09/07][19:04:40] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:04:51] [Pandora]: Our coffers are good, our people are happy.
    [14/09/07][19:04:53] [King Blackthorn]: I will have the Architects give the plans to the Royal Builders
    [14/09/07][19:05:12] [King Blackthorn]: However some of you are still waiting on offices, so those will come first.
    [14/09/07][19:05:19] [Pandora]: We've finally put in play the ground-breaking for a new hospital in East Britain.
    [14/09/07][19:05:25] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:05:32] [Pandora]: Yes sire.
    [14/09/07][19:05:38] [Pandora]: Was going to inquire about them.
    [14/09/07][19:05:44] [Catalina Erentzo]: ** raises a eye brow **
    [14/09/07][19:06:09] [King Blackthorn]: Very good. The healers will be pleased, as will those who believe
    [14/09/07][19:06:37] [King Blackthorn]: Having a small place to hold criminals is somehow denigrating to Britain.
    [14/09/07][19:06:53] [King Blackthorn]: It is, of course, a worthy project in any city.
    [14/09/07][19:06:58] [King Blackthorn]: The hospital, that is.
    [14/09/07][19:07:00] [Catalina Erentzo]: if not mistaken the only Prison is in Yew Right?
    [14/09/07][19:07:01] [King Blackthorn]: *chuckles*
    [14/09/07][19:07:03] [Pandora]: So I will personally fund the construction, but the city will handle the staffing of the new Hospital
    [14/09/07][19:07:09] [Pandora]: *looks back*
    [14/09/07][19:07:12] [Pandora]: Prison, yes.
    [14/09/07][19:07:19] [Alfonso]: no Catalina there are jails in a couple of cities
    [14/09/07][19:07:26] [Pandora]: Small jails should, in my opinion, exist in every city.
    [14/09/07][19:07:35] [Pandora]: *looks back to the King*
    [14/09/07][19:07:36] [Catalina Erentzo]: geuss my notes are little out of date
    [14/09/07][19:07:42] [King Blackthorn]: Perhaps.
    [14/09/07][19:07:46] [Thom]: As Governor Va'lis pointed out, magical travel is very common.
    [14/09/07][19:08:00] [King Blackthorn]: *looks to Thom and nods*
    [14/09/07][19:08:04] [Pandora]: *looks to Thom*
    [14/09/07][19:08:15] [King Blackthorn]: It is as I said regarding the ligthouse...
    [14/09/07][19:08:16] [Catalina Erentzo]: i may need to examine the new Jails
    [14/09/07][19:08:21] [Pandora]: *looks back to the King*
    [14/09/07][19:08:31] [King Blackthorn]: While most towns could *make use* of a jail
    [14/09/07][19:08:41] [King Blackthorn]: Some are better suited to place their efforts elsewhere.
    [14/09/07][19:08:50] [King Blackthorn]: To areas of greater need.
    [14/09/07][19:08:57] [Thom]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:09:12] [King Blackthorn]: *looks back to Governor Pandora*
    [14/09/07][19:09:22] [Pandora]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][19:09:24] [King Blackthorn]: Was there anything else you wanted to discuss?
    [14/09/07][19:09:35] [Pandora]: Thus the price of the construction will be on my personal pocket.
    [14/09/07][19:09:41] [Aleksei Kai]: *shifts in seat*
    [14/09/07][19:09:42] [Pandora]: But staffing sire...
    [14/09/07][19:09:47] [Pandora]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][19:09:53] [Merida Douglas]: *looks back..glares...looks forward again*
    [14/09/07][19:09:55] [Pandora]: Well...
    [14/09/07][19:10:12] [Pandora]: I have brought over the young lady Amelia Watanabe for your questioning.
    [14/09/07][19:10:16] [Pandora]: *motions to her*
    [14/09/07][19:10:25] [King Blackthorn]: Ah. Hm.
    [14/09/07][19:10:27] [Pandora]: *smiles to Amelia*
    [14/09/07][19:10:30] [King Blackthorn]: *looks across table*
    [14/09/07][19:10:37] [Merida Douglas]: *keeps hold of her hand gently.*
    [14/09/07][19:10:38] [King Blackthorn]: Welcome.
    [14/09/07][19:10:58] [King Blackthorn]: I was not aware that she would be attending this evening.
    [14/09/07][19:11:01] [King Blackthorn]: *looks to Governor Pandora*
    [14/09/07][19:11:28] [Pandora]: Well sir, you did request an audience with her... unless those that took notes on my behalf
    [14/09/07][19:11:34] [Pandora]: misspoke.
    [14/09/07][19:11:53] [Alfonso]: *bites tongue*
    [14/09/07][19:11:55] [Pandora]: I mean she's here...
    [14/09/07][19:12:00] [Thom]: This... is a meeting. Not an audience... unless i'm mistaken.
    [14/09/07][19:12:02] [King Blackthorn]: It was to be Thorpe who was going to talk with her.
    [14/09/07][19:12:08] [Thom]: perhaps after the meeting would be a better time to talk to her sire.
    [14/09/07][19:12:10] [Pandora]: its hard to get her here... as her work and schooling is a tough schedule to break.
    [14/09/07][19:12:25] [King Blackthorn]: Agreed. There has been very much contention during the Council meetings already.
    [14/09/07][19:12:33] [King Blackthorn]: I do not wish to introduce more.
    [14/09/07][19:12:34] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:12:36] [King Blackthorn]: However...
    [14/09/07][19:12:40] [Pandora]: We shall wait until after.
    [14/09/07][19:12:49] [Pandora]: Or..
    [14/09/07][19:12:58] [King Blackthorn]: If you wait until the conclusion of the meeting, I shall dispatch someone to gather Thorpe.
    [14/09/07][19:13:02] [King Blackthorn]: He may have a brief moment.
    [14/09/07][19:13:27] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:13:45] [King Blackthorn]: Aside from this, is there any other business to be discussed by the Council?
    [14/09/07][19:13:55] [King Blackthorn]: Otherwise I shall open the floor to comments from the Citizenry.
    [14/09/07][19:14:08] [Pandora]: Well our Sewer Mud Run will run once again this month.
    [14/09/07][19:14:10] [Pandora]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][19:14:12] [King Blackthorn]: *glances back and forth*
    [14/09/07][19:14:29] [Pandora]: And that's all I have sire.
    [14/09/07][19:14:33] [King Blackthorn]: Then we shall have stewards on hand with large buckets of water.
    [14/09/07][19:14:40] [Pandora]: *laughs a bit*
    [14/09/07][19:14:41] [King Blackthorn]: And perhaps clothes pins.
    [14/09/07][19:14:45] [Pandora]: Yes... much needed.
    [14/09/07][19:14:46] [Alfonso]: *chuckles*
    [14/09/07][19:14:55] [Kalmar Erikkson]: *laughs*
    [14/09/07][19:14:59] [King Blackthorn]: Very good.
    [14/09/07][19:15:04] [Pandora]: *smiles brightly*
    [14/09/07][19:15:14] [Catalina Erentzo]: ** or verry big vacuum cleaners :p **
    [14/09/07][19:15:17] [King Blackthorn]: *looking again at the Council*
    [14/09/07][19:15:30] [King Blackthorn]: Have any of you brought a citizen of your town who wishes to address the Council?
    [14/09/07][19:15:47] [Thom]: Not to my knowledge sire.
    [14/09/07][19:16:04] [King Blackthorn]: Very well then.
    [14/09/07][19:16:12] [King Blackthorn]: *a bit louder now*
    [14/09/07][19:16:34] [King Blackthorn]: At this time, if any wish to address the Royal Council concerning affairs of the realm,
    [14/09/07][19:16:50] [King Blackthorn]: please stand.
    [14/09/07][19:17:05] [King Blackthorn]: *looks about the room*
    [14/09/07][19:17:15] [King Blackthorn]: *notices a man in front*
    [14/09/07][19:17:24] [Amelia]: *waits*
    [14/09/07][19:17:26] [King Blackthorn]: Please sir, approach the Council and state your name.
    [14/09/07][19:17:30] [Merida Douglas]: *blinks at Amelia...*
    [14/09/07][19:17:41] [Merida Douglas]: *gives her a questioning look..*
    [14/09/07][19:17:55] [Mario Trovario]: I do believe I have approached the council as far as this large table will allow...
    [14/09/07][19:18:03] [King Blackthorn]: *chuckles*
    [14/09/07][19:18:05] [King Blackthorn]: Indeed.
    [14/09/07][19:18:09] [King Blackthorn]: What is your name?
    [14/09/07][19:18:10] [Thom]: *grins*
    [14/09/07][19:18:28] [Mario Trovario]: My name is Mario Trovario
    [14/09/07][19:18:30] [Pandora]: *looks over to Amelia and then to the gentleman*
    [14/09/07][19:18:46] [King Blackthorn]: Welcome, Mario Trovario.
    [14/09/07][19:18:51] [King Blackthorn]: You have our attention.
    [14/09/07][19:18:55] [Mario Trovario]: ...and I am here on behalf of Governor Jack Bauer
    [14/09/07][19:19:12] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles, a bit bemused*
    [14/09/07][19:19:16] [King Blackthorn]: Oh?
    [14/09/07][19:19:21] [Pandora]: Of what town?
    [14/09/07][19:19:41] [Mario Trovario]: of Buccaneer's Den...
    [14/09/07][19:19:49] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:20:17] [Mario Trovario]: This past week, Governor Bauer was blindsided in an attack which nearly had taken his life...
    [14/09/07][19:20:30] [King Blackthorn]: On Buccaneer's Den?
    [14/09/07][19:20:47] [Mario Trovario]: Yes, at his residence at Buccaneer's Den
    [14/09/07][19:21:02] [Mario Trovario]: He was beaten... badly...
    [14/09/07][19:21:02] [King Blackthorn]: That is unfortunate.
    [14/09/07][19:21:23] [Mario Trovario]: and is currently recovering... He is too weak to be here.
    [14/09/07][19:21:31] [King Blackthorn]: Though it would seem an occupational hazard when declaring oneself Governor of an island out outlaw
    [14/09/07][19:21:48] [Mario Trovario]: *looks at the King suspiciously*
    [14/09/07][19:21:56] [Merida Douglas]: *smiles a bit*
    [14/09/07][19:22:06] [Mario Trovario]: It is strange that you should say that...
    [14/09/07][19:22:22] [King Blackthorn]: How so?
    [14/09/07][19:22:34] [Mario Trovario]: as a written warning was left in his burned home...
    [14/09/07][19:22:52] [Thom]: *tilts his head*
    [14/09/07][19:23:00] [Mario Trovario]: I have with me a paper...
    [14/09/07][19:23:11] [Mario Trovario]: *unfolds the parchment*
    [14/09/07][19:23:15] [Mario Trovario]: ahem
    [14/09/07][19:23:17] [Mario Trovario]: *cough*
    [14/09/07][19:23:29] [King Blackthorn]: *leans back in chair, with a strange look on his face*
    [14/09/07][19:23:32] [Mario Trovario]: It's header is: A warning
    [14/09/07][19:23:42] [Pandora]: Sire, see this is what I was working on avoiding with my sub-council.
    [14/09/07][19:23:45] [Mario Trovario]: then it goes on to read:
    [14/09/07][19:23:47] [Pandora]: *bites tongue*
    [14/09/07][19:24:01] [King Blackthorn]: *motions gently with hand for Pandora to wait and listen*
    [14/09/07][19:24:17] [Mario Trovario]: Buccaneer's Den will never be supported by the crown...
    [14/09/07][19:24:45] [King Blackthorn]: *considers and then nods in agreement*
    [14/09/07][19:24:46] [Mario Trovario]: Keep your crimminals together on your forsaken island and stay away from the Governor meetings...
    [14/09/07][19:24:55] [Mario Trovario]: ... Or else.
    [14/09/07][19:25:01] [Pandora]: *sighs*
    [14/09/07][19:25:13] [King Blackthorn]: That IS interesting.
    [14/09/07][19:25:16] [Pandora]: I didn't think that!
    [14/09/07][19:25:17] [King Blackthorn]: *leans forward a bit*
    [14/09/07][19:25:22] [Mario Trovario]: this note was written without an author's credit...
    [14/09/07][19:25:29] [Pandora]: *can barely contain herself*
    [14/09/07][19:25:32] [King Blackthorn]: Do you have any idea who might have been responsible?
    [14/09/07][19:25:59] [Mario Trovario]: Well, there as an additional item found amongst the rubble.
    [14/09/07][19:26:00] [King Blackthorn]: Or a suspect of any kind?
    [14/09/07][19:26:15] [Mario Trovario]: ... a pair of ranger's gloves
    [14/09/07][19:26:20] [Catalina Erentzo]: ** would probably be one of the most nortious Pirate, yet to be captured i bet **
    [14/09/07][19:26:46] [Mario Trovario]: If i may hand you the note..
    [14/09/07][19:26:49] [Mario Trovario]: *looks around*
    [14/09/07][19:26:51] [King Blackthorn]: *leans back in chair*
    [14/09/07][19:27:07] [King Blackthorn]: Am I to understand, then...
    [14/09/07][19:27:16] [King Blackthorn]: That you suspect a Ranger of Skara Brae is responsible?
    [14/09/07][19:27:40] [Alfonso]: *looks at Ouija's empty seat*
    [14/09/07][19:27:47] [Mario Trovario]: All we know at this time is that a pair of gloves that are known to be worn by rangers....
    [14/09/07][19:27:54] [Mario Trovario]: was carelessly left
    [14/09/07][19:28:00] [Mario Trovario]: ...or
    [14/09/07][19:28:02] [Merida Douglas]: *now amused.*
    [14/09/07][19:28:07] [Catalina Erentzo]: hmm??
    [14/09/07][19:28:23] [Mario Trovario]: ... it was left with the intention to make us believe that the rangers were involved...
    [14/09/07][19:28:33] [King Blackthorn]: Ah!
    [14/09/07][19:28:37] [Mario Trovario]: Personally...
    [14/09/07][19:28:38] [King Blackthorn]: So, it seems quite clear then.
    [14/09/07][19:28:42] [King Blackthorn]: Oh?
    [14/09/07][19:28:55] [Mario Trovario]: I believe there is a larger picture to this crime
    [14/09/07][19:28:55] [Pandora]: *gasps*
    [14/09/07][19:29:03] [Pandora]: *looks behind her*
    [14/09/07][19:29:07] [Mario Trovario]: Perhaps involvment from a....
    [14/09/07][19:29:12] [Mario Trovario]: Higher authority...
    [14/09/07][19:29:25] [King Blackthorn]: *leans forward again, once again interested*
    [14/09/07][19:29:32] [Catalina Erentzo]: ** eyes widen in confusement !?! **
    [14/09/07][19:29:33] [Thom]: Are you accusing the King?
    [14/09/07][19:29:39] [Alfonso]: You are accusing
    [14/09/07][19:29:42] [King Blackthorn]: How high might this authority be, do you think?
    [14/09/07][19:29:45] [Mario Trovario]: *looks to Governor Thom*
    [14/09/07][19:29:56] [Mario Trovario]: *and back to the King*
    [14/09/07][19:29:57] [Kalmar Erikkson]: The Royal Britannian Guard would never.
    [14/09/07][19:29:58] [King Blackthorn]: *looks around and shakes head, gesturing with hands for calm*
    [14/09/07][19:30:03] [Mario Trovario]: Let's just say...
    [14/09/07][19:30:10] [King Blackthorn]: Let the man speak what he intends to say.
    [14/09/07][19:30:17] [Mario Trovario]: We are holding off on making any accusations...
    [14/09/07][19:30:22] [Pandora]: *holds a hand to the Captains in attendance*
    [14/09/07][19:30:32] [Mario Trovario]: Until more information is recieived...
    [14/09/07][19:30:48] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][19:30:48] [Pandora]: *sighs*
    [14/09/07][19:30:58] [King Blackthorn]: Yet you suspect a "higher authority".
    [14/09/07][19:31:14] [King Blackthorn]: I only ask what you are implying good sir, not for an accusation.
    [14/09/07][19:31:24] [Mario Trovario]: But Governor Bauer is well aware of the disinterest of our town's involvement with the crown...
    [14/09/07][19:31:26] [King Blackthorn]: A theory of who might have reason to do this, is all.
    [14/09/07][19:31:45] [Merida Douglas]: *tugs Amelia's hand*
    [14/09/07][19:31:51] [Merida Douglas]: come, sit down love, this will take a while
    [14/09/07][19:31:55] [Mario Trovario]: You will hear a more complete theory at a later time...
    [14/09/07][19:31:57] [Merida Douglas]: *grinning a bit*
    [14/09/07][19:31:58] [Mario Trovario]: Sir.
    [14/09/07][19:32:01] [King Blackthorn]: Very good.
    [14/09/07][19:32:06] [King Blackthorn]: Then a question I will pose to you.
    [14/09/07][19:32:13] [Mario Trovario]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:32:14] [King Blackthorn]: *gestures around the room*
    [14/09/07][19:32:41] [Mario Trovario]: *waits and listens*
    [14/09/07][19:32:41] [King Blackthorn]: Do you find it odd, that all are asked to sheathe their weapons upon entering this chamber?
    [14/09/07][19:32:55] [King Blackthorn]: Yet, there is not a single armed guard near?
    [14/09/07][19:33:17] [Va'lis Razele]: *Looks down at the spellbook in his lap*
    [14/09/07][19:33:18] [Mario Trovario]: I hever never put much thought into that Lord Blackthorn
    [14/09/07][19:33:28] [Mario Trovario]: have never*
    [14/09/07][19:33:29] [King Blackthorn]: Of course, few do.
    [14/09/07][19:34:07] [King Blackthorn]: I have a message for you to return to your "Governor" with, along with my
    [14/09/07][19:34:11] [King Blackthorn]: wishes for a speedy recovery.
    [14/09/07][19:34:23] [Kalmar Erikkson]: *coughs*
    [14/09/07][19:34:37] [Mario Trovario]: *pulls out acrumpled, blank piece of paper*
    [14/09/07][19:34:40] [King Blackthorn]: If, during the course of your investigation into his attack
    [14/09/07][19:34:49] [Mario Trovario]: *writes*
    [14/09/07][19:34:53] [Mario Trovario]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:35:05] [King Blackthorn]: It should occur to you to accuse myself, as King.
    [14/09/07][19:35:19] [Mario Trovario]: *continues writing*
    [14/09/07][19:35:23] [King Blackthorn]: I shall show him why I need no guards.
    [14/09/07][19:35:23] [Mario Trovario]: *blinks*
    [14/09/07][19:35:25] [Pandora]: *blinks*
    [14/09/07][19:35:29] [Pandora]: Woah.
    [14/09/07][19:35:31] [Gillian Wilkins]: *turns*
    [14/09/07][19:35:32] [Va'lis Razele]: *Slight grin*
    [14/09/07][19:35:35] [Alfonso]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][19:35:39] [Mylar Tyrmitore]: *stares*
    [14/09/07][19:35:40] [King Blackthorn]: If it were my intention to have Jack Bauer killed.
    [14/09/07][19:35:48] [King Blackthorn]: You would have no one to deliver this message to.
    [14/09/07][19:35:56] [King Blackthorn]: *smirks*
    [14/09/07][19:36:02] [Mario Trovario]: *shows slight sign of fear*
    [14/09/07][19:36:16] [Morrow Mallorn]: *chuckles quietly but quickly stifles it and shifts a bit*
    [14/09/07][19:36:18] [Pandora]: *looks around the room*
    [14/09/07][19:36:24] [Mario Trovario]: *looking confused*
    [14/09/07][19:36:24] [Pandora]: *then to the chair to her left*
    [14/09/07][19:36:30] [Mario Trovario]: The message shall...
    [14/09/07][19:36:34] [King Blackthorn]: Please, give my regards to Jack.
    [14/09/07][19:36:41] [Mario Trovario]: be delivered in it's entirety
    [14/09/07][19:36:59] [King Blackthorn]: Excellent. You are a most dutiful emissary.
    [14/09/07][19:37:06] [Mario Trovario]: *nods and stumbles into a chair*
    [14/09/07][19:37:11] [Kalmar Erikkson]: To accuse his guard, is to accuse the King.
    [14/09/07][19:37:18] [Mario Trovario]: *takes a deep breath*
    [14/09/07][19:37:18] [Gillian Wilkins]: *looks over briefly*
    [14/09/07][19:37:26] [King Blackthorn]: Now!
    [14/09/07][19:37:27] [Pandora]: *sighs*
    [14/09/07][19:37:29] [King Blackthorn]: *brightens up a bit*
    [14/09/07][19:37:30] [Merida Douglas]: *pats Amelia's hand*
    [14/09/07][19:37:33] [King Blackthorn]: Was there anyone else?
    [14/09/07][19:37:33] [Merida Douglas]: *murmurs*
    [14/09/07][19:37:34] [Catalina Erentzo]: ** why am i not surprised **
    [14/09/07][19:37:39] [Merida Douglas]: y-
    [14/09/07][19:37:45] [Amelia]: *stops in the middle of getting up*
    [14/09/07][19:37:45] [Gillian Wilkins]: *smiles*
    [14/09/07][19:37:52] [Mario Trovario]: *looks up to the ranger*
    [14/09/07][19:37:55] [Merida Douglas]: *smiles to amelia*
    [14/09/07][19:37:57] [Merida Douglas]: in due time love
    [14/09/07][19:37:58] [King Blackthorn]: Ah yes, Gillian Wilkins. If I may...
    [14/09/07][19:38:02] [Gillian Wilkins]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:38:13] [King Blackthorn]: I believe our friend Amelia wished to say something.
    [14/09/07][19:38:24] [King Blackthorn]: If she still does, I invite her to speak first, so long it is not concerning matters
    [14/09/07][19:38:34] [King Blackthorn]: Which I have already said will be spoken of later this evening.
    [14/09/07][19:38:37] [Gillian Wilkins]: *nods*
    [14/09/07][19:38:39] [Gillian Wilkins]: By all means!
    [14/09/07][19:38:45] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you, Gillian.
    [14/09/07][19:38:50] [King Blackthorn]: Amelia, welcome.
    [14/09/07][19:38:58] [King Blackthorn]: What it is you wish to bring to the attention of the Council?
    [14/09/07][19:39:05] [Pandora]: *looks to her*
    [14/09/07][19:39:07] [Amelia]: I had a suggestion on the matter that was brought up of town moongates
    [14/09/07][19:39:14] [King Blackthorn]: Oh?
    [14/09/07][19:39:19] [King Blackthorn]: *readies quill and ink*
    [14/09/07][19:39:25] [Amelia]: perhaps it would be easiest to incorporate teleporter tiles into town signs
    [14/09/07][19:39:34] [Amelia]: and place a central hub for them somewhere
    [14/09/07][19:39:41] [Amelia]: near an actual moongate
    [14/09/07][19:39:56] [Amelia]: that way they can be added or removed easily
    [14/09/07][19:40:04] [Pandora]: Hmmm.
    [14/09/07][19:40:11] [Pandora]: *makes some notes*
    [14/09/07][19:40:14] [King Blackthorn]: *makes a few notes*
    [14/09/07][19:40:37] [King Blackthorn]: I will have to discuss it with the Royal Mage of Transport, but I would agree with you.

    I must say that that was a very interesting meeting. In the past I have been prone to falling asleep at such events due to a huge amount to read within a long amount of time, but I was totally into the entire discussion which occurred.

    It was a good show on all parts, especially towards the end. It seemed unrehearsed and really exciting.

    Good show by all participants!

    It made me laugh a bit, I am really a bit intrigued by the plot involving Buc's Den though. I may have to have Aedon poke his head in there and look around. And before any of your Governors offer protest let me remind you that Aedon is not one to accept the authority over him by anyone other than his wife. (she has a really big axe)

    Lord Blackthorn, you sure you do not wish to just step down and let me solve all this stuff for you? I am sure I can have half the council staked in the sun and the rest drinking and singing in Galehaven by the weeks end. *grins*

    That might be an improvement with this council and this king that believes not all peasants are equal and not all deserve the same basic infrastructure. When one town is weaker and has less resources allotted to it then the entire kingdom is weakened! Even the simplest things seemed to get stonewalled and put off. A collection chest,...an arcane circle,..a collection officer , a gate someplace near the town. ....sorry can't help ya vesper,... But no we have resources for jails and lighthouses. In other towns.
    Bring all the towns up to the same basic level before you add a single thing to another town....or there will be a revolt! And if this is treason so be it....
