You see: King Blackthorn
Lavendar: All Hail Your Majesty, Cat Cora: Hail King
King Blackthorn: greetings everyone
Miri: Good evening, Queen Mum: Good evening Sire, Katrina: hello Majesty
Clym of Clough: Good Evening
King Blackthorn: Let us please be seated
King Blackthorn: First thing on my list Katrina is due for a promotion. Katrina I have to order a lantern made.
King Blackthorn: I was misinformed to the availability so it may be a weeks earth time before I can get it to you. But it is top priority! *shiffles parchment*
Clym of Clough: *raises hand*
Katrina: I thank you Majesty
King Blackthorn: It seems some have to be ordered! Yes Governor Clym
Clym of Clough: I wonder why the promotions are only given at a meeting that not everyone can attend? And then are not available later?
King Blackthorn: I had them ready but they have been removed by the court jester! So now I must reorder them. *raises his right eyebrow* If that is ok with you Governor?
Clym of Clough: This ties into a statement I have for the new business, so I will wait with further comment
King Blackthorn: Pray tell what new business have you sir
Clym of Clough: Well we have Governors who do not attend meetings, some of them are reasons beyond their control because of the time of the meetings
King Blackthorn: *check his paperwork*
Clym of Clough: I speak on behalf of Lord Governor Galahad
King Blackthorn: I believe this is only the second meeting of the cycle is it not?
Clym of Clough: yes
King Blackthorn: *nods*
King Blackthorn: I have not gotten any message that says why the governors have missed these meetings.
Clym of Clough: Lord Galahad is one of our most treasured members, but he has a very silent "second" life, one which is most important not only to Britannia but to the whole world
King Blackthorn: To what city is Lord Galahad loyal?
Clym of Clough: he is not able to attend weeknight meetings
Note: I will not go into what Lord Galahad 2nd life is here, if you so desire to learn of this then PM Lord Galahad with a request of information.
King Blackthorn: *gives a baffled look*
Clym of Clough: there fore he works long and hard hours at this second life
King Blackthorn: If Lord Galahad wishes to be excused from meetings then all he hast do is message me. Tis not too much to ask I don't think.
Clym of Clough: If we had these meetings as we had them before on Sundays. Sunday evening it seemed to me we had more attendance.
King Blackthorn: *makes note of the request*
Cat Cora: *nods*
King Blackthorn: Sundays you say? Is this good for everyone?
King Blackthorn: *glances down the table*
Lavendar: It would depend on the time for me
Clym of Clough: I don't know but I would like to see discussion
Miri: It might be a good idea to rethink the meeting given the empty seats
Lavendar: My time zone is 6 hours earlier
Miri: Sunday works for me
Clym of Clough: my time zone is 15 hours later
Clym of Clough: and I make the meetings most of the time
King Blackthorn: What time is best for you Governor Lavendar?
Lavendar: Around this time would work, I cannot come early. I work Sunday
King Blackthorn: So what say ye Sundays at this time then?
King Blackthorn: Please vote aye or nay
Lavendar: that I could do most Sundays
Clym of Clough: aye
King Blackthorn: *glances down*
King Blackthorn: Sundays at this time two aye
Queen Mum: aye
King Blackthorn: Would be Second Sunday of the month as it 'tis now at this hour
Clym of Clough: ah whew, 3 aye
King Blackthorn: Do I hear any objection to this motion?
Lavendar: That would be fine with me
King Blackthorn: Very well the motion passes
Clym of Clough: Lord Galahad will appreciate this and perhaps the others missing at meetings may be able to attend
King Blackthorn: Starting in the month of April meetings will be the second Sunday of the month at 7pm PDT
Queen Mum: Sunday April 10 @ 7pm Pacific
Clym of Clough: Thank you Sire
King Blackthorn: Unless of course it needs to be changed for holiday or other purposes it shall stand until another motion passes on the subject. While you speak Governor Clym of Clough who fairs your fine city
Clym of Clough: beg your pardon, I don't understand
King Blackthorn: How is Skara Brae?
King Blackthorn: *coughs*
King Blackthorn: *coughs*
Clym of Clough: ah, Skara is Great!!! Wonderful agricultural folks are selling their wares, the shopkeepers are happy, all is well
King Blackthorn: Apologies I seem to have a slight cold. Perhaps Spring is in the air.
Clym of Clough: pardon my slight speech impairment
King Blackthorn: *clears throat*
King Blackthorn: Tis good to hear Skara fares well
Queen Mum: *passes the King some Lemon Tea with Honey*
King Blackthorn: Governor Queen Mum how is our Capital?
King Blackthorn: Thank you!
King Blackthorn: *sips it slowly*
Queen Mum: very well, our farmers have begun to plow to start spring planting
King Blackthorn: Very good I am glad to see workers working hard! Are all their needs well met?
Queen Mum: The trees do have a few buds showing and the Gardeners are excited to start planting flowers. Aye Sire. They are also keeping an eye out for the imposter.
King Blackthorn: Very good! Yes I would like to know the whereabouts of that man. I have guards searching high and low! He is a dangerous lot.
Clym of Clough: I fear the citizens of our kingdom will be so busy fighting dinosaurs
Queen Mum: pitchforks and shears are ready
Clym of Clough: and giant apes that they may not see a stealthy one
King Blackthorn: Indeed. I do have some well armed guards I can dispatch to quell the fears of the public
King Blackthorn: Lady Miri how are the people of Yew city?
Miri: Bright eyed and bushy tailed..ready for spring!!
Clym of Clough: *chuckles*
King Blackthorn: Very good! No sign of the impostor in Yew then?
Miri: Nay no sign of him
Miri: but there are lots of hiding places in the deep forest
King Blackthorn: Very good I am sure with a Paladin like yourself as governors their fears are low
Miri: aye we are keeping watch
King Blackthorn: Very well
King Blackthorn: Lavendar how is Vesper this season?
Lavendar: Vesper is beautiful as ever, thank you, Your Highness.
Lavendar: We are happy to see the ice melting, and spring flowers popping up.
Lavendar: We had a visitor for Valentine's Day who gave out Valentines gifts to those who could make it.
King Blackthorn: It is a nice time. That island city must be very exciting this time of year
Lavendar: Yes, the waters are rushing around the bridges from the snow melt.
King Blackthorn: *nods*
Lavendar: I believe the Easter Bunny will be paying us a visit
King Blackthorn: I may take a stroll that way later!
Lavendar: with some Easter Baskets.
Lavendar: Alas, we have seen no sign of the imposter.
King Blackthorn: A location such as yours must be ideal for a criminal to hide out. Under bridges and such
King Blackthorn: I will post guards there as well!
King Blackthorn: Especially with the events you are having
Lavendar: I am sure there are many places to hide, I am sorry to say.
King Blackthorn: *makes a note*
Lavendar: And as others have mentioned, we have quite a lot of forest .
King Blackthorn: Yes and the caves near the mountains aren't far off either
King Blackthorn: Now Governor Showers tell me about Trinsic! I understand there was a big fuss there recently.
Katrina: Your Majesty may I be excused? I have chores to finish.
King Blackthorn: Yes Katrina I apologize
King Blackthorn: Your needs are not forgotten
Katrina: Thank You sire
Katrina: good night
Miri: *waves to Katrina*
King Blackthorn: It seems Governor Showers may have fainted
Lavendar: Good Night.
Katrina: bye all
King Blackthorn: Perhaps there is some illness going around
Clym of Clough: yes it seems that way
Lavendar: Sleeping sickness?
King Blackthorn: Speaking of illness
Clym of Clough: perhaps just fallen asleep?
King Blackthorn: Commander Cameron is stable but unchanged. There is an ancient remedy. Only learned by stories told. It comes up only because of the time portal gate to Eodon. There is a possibility of a cure.
Miri: well that sounds hopeful
Clym of Clough: Excellent, I miss Cameron
Kupoking: *moves in to get a better listen*
King Blackthorn: A special plant that only grows for one week out of the year, but is long since extinct. Has been extinct for longer than I have a memory for sure. But word is this plant may be alive in Eodon
King Blackthorn: Due to bloom sometime this month
Miri: do you know its name we can look for it
King Blackthorn: Now stories go as far as to say this plant can even cure death
Clym of Clough: Do we have a clue as to what this plant looks like?
King Blackthorn: So believe what you will it is a long-shot. It is said to look like poison actually
Miri: can’t hurt to look for it
King Blackthorn: As if it were a bad flower or herb with a cap like a mushroom on top and clover that grows around it thrives. I have already sent preliminary scouts through to investigate
Clym of Clough: ah, I find poison plants without even looking, perhaps I will find one *smiles*
King Blackthorn: But so far they have come up without anything
King Blackthorn: *chuckles*
King Blackthorn: Well keep your eyes open should ye travel that way
King Blackthorn: They say it almost glows in the dark. I fear it may be our only hope for our Commander. *shuffles pages regretfully* It is a last hope *looks up*
Clym of Clough: Would this be something a citizen could find or only a mission by the Royal Guard?
King Blackthorn: It isn't set to bloom yet so I don't think you will just happen upon it
Clym of Clough: ah
King Blackthorn: And if it is as powerful as they say it may be well guarded
King Blackthorn: By... Well by whatever is living back then. Or there, back then there. If you start to see clover. Then it is time. I will call the guard at that time to go search for sure
Clym of Clough: I hope they are large fields of clover
King Blackthorn: In the mean time we keep Commander Cameron comfortable
Clym of Clough: because it seems I do alot of running in Eodon just to save my life
King Blackthorn: And search for that imposter!
King Blackthorn: Yes that place is dangerous
King Blackthorn: Only the strong survive there
Clym of Clough: If we find him, he will be an EXposter
Cat Cora: *smiles*
King Blackthorn: It will have to be our best guardsmen and women
King Blackthorn: He will pay for his crimes
King Blackthorn: Of that you can be sure!
King Blackthorn: If there is nothing further I need to go investigate those lanterns!
King Blackthorn: *grumbles about imps moving things*
King Blackthorn: Anyone?
Queen Mum: they are playful beings
Queen Mum: not I Sire
King Blackthorn: *chuckles*
King Blackthorn: playful beings my foot
Clym of Clough: nor me
Cat Cora: *smiles*
King Blackthorn: Very well I will see you the second Sunday of April!
King Blackthorn: Meeting adjourned!!!
Queen Mum: Good night Sire
King Blackthorn: *straightens his cloak*
King Blackthorn: Good eve to you all
Clym of Clough: As my Irish grandpappy used to say..........May the wind at yer back niver be yer own!
King Blackthorn: *laughs*
King Blackthorn: My Lady
Queen Mum: *giggles*
