    Dezerai: Kal Ort Por

    She did not wish to be late for this meeting, it had been quite on the isle of mages far to long and she had concerns of a feeling of impending threats to her home.

    Arriving in the city of Britain, she quickly proceeds towards the direction of Castle Blackthrone.

    You are now under the protection of the town guards.
    You see: Royal Guard
    You see: Fergus the Royal Guard First
    You see: Magrathea
    You see: Lavendar Baroness of Vesper
    You see: Lady Miri the Paladin
    You see: Vershawn Knight of Trinsic

    Lavendar: Good evening, Governor Dezerai
    Dezerai: evening
    Nex: hail
    Lavendar: Hail Nex
    Dezerai: Hail
    Lavendar: Hail, Your Majesty
    King Blackthorn: Good evening
    Nex: Hail
    King Blackthorn: Please be seated
    Dezerai: My message was to bring a rune to my primary resident, but I have three so brought a book
    Dezerai: Hail Sire
    Welcome back, Governor Dezerai
    King Blackthorn: Thank you, Dezerai
    King Blackthorn: It is appreciated
    King Blackthorn: Please hand me any runes to you residences...
    As she passes the rune book over to him, she can see deep lines of concern across his face. And can feel that the meeting will not a normal meeting. As the other Governors move to hand HRM runes she slips into her chair to await the start of the meeting.
    Lavendar: Mine has the name of the castle, if you can remember purple flower the name of the castle is Wisteria and mine is Lavendar
    King Blackthorn: I originally was going to summon you at your private residences, Though if you feel this is invasive, I will summon you at your offices within your respective cities
    Lavendar: I would be happy to have you see my residence.
    Dezerai: For me either will do :) Sire

    Lavendar: Whatever you wish.
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: Shall we get started?
    You see: Lord Galahad Ambusher of the Kurak
    King Blackthorn: First things first... Where are my governors?
    Lavendar: Some of us are here , Sire
    Galahad: some of us are here
    Lavendar: and happy to see you
    Galahad: albeit a bit tardy for me
    Lavendar: I believe we have one or two
    Lavendar: cities without governors
    Lavendar: Dezerai might know
    Dezerai: Trinsic’s is absent I know the Lady April Showers wanted to attend
    King Blackthorn: That is what I assumed
    Galahad: We are in need of a governor for Yew i know
    Galahad: I have a suggestion for that possibly
    Lavendar: I am hoping she sits in the back row
    Lavendar: waiting for elections
    King Blackthorn: Yew and Minoc, perhaps?
    Lavendar: Miri was governor of Yew before
    Lavendar: and might wish to be again
    Galahad: Has a motion to propose
    Miri: *ponders*
    Dezerai: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: What is your suggestion,
    Lavendar: Is Minoc vacant?
    Galahad: Lady Miri was a fine gov, once before, perhaps we can impose on her once again?
    Lavendar: I miss sitting next to her.
    Dezerai: I am not sure about Minoc
    King Blackthorn: *shakes head*
    King Blackthorn: I've seen this before
    Lavendar: Queen Mum is governor of Britain
    Dezerai: Queen Mum is Brit
    Lavendar: I assume she couldn't make it
    King Blackthorn: Our cities can not go without governance
    Lavendar: along with April Showers
    Lavendar: who is usually at every meeting
    King Blackthorn: *nods* I'm more concerned about the people of the city without governance. If these cities fall into chaos, so be it. But it benefits us all to have a stone alliance
    Lavendar: I hope that we will have a full turnout at elections.
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Lavendar: Ah, here is Miss Showers
    Dezerai: there is April
    April Showers: sorry
    Lavendar: Hail April
    King Blackthorn: Welcome April
    Dezerai: *smiles*
    April Showers: HI
    King Blackthorn: We have been discussing the ungoverned cities. Know this... If cities go without governorship and law...
    What is to prevent the people from uprising
    Lavendar: It is a concern, certainly.
    Dezerai: Those cities could very well fall far easier then those cities with leaders
    King Blackthorn: Lets keep careful attention to the state of Yew
    Galahad: That is why I suggested Lady Miri
    King Blackthorn: A civil war is not something any of us should want...
    Lavendar: Yew is a very important city-- Might we ask Lady Miri if she would be willing?
    King Blackthorn: Please, Lavendar. Thank you for offering
    Dezerai: Then Lady Miri was its governor before maybe we can get her to once more take up the mantle
    Lavendar: Please consider being governor of Yew again, dear Lady Miri
    Lavendar: We miss you.
    Dezerai: Yes pleases we beg thee
    Galahad: Yo Miri, give in *laugh*
    King Blackthorn: Let's give it some time...
    Dezerai: Yes sire
    Miri: Yew is a quiet hamlet and doesn’t seem to be in turmoil
    King Blackthorn: Let her think it over
    Lavendar: Yes, but that doesn't address the fact that there is an empty seat next to me.
    Miri: but if someone is needed I will always be there for Yew
    Lavendar: And one never knows, there could be an invasion. Does that mean you say yes? *hopes*
    Dezerai: and me as well * looks at the empty seat for Skara
    King Blackthorn: Let's discuss this again at the next meeting
    Galahad: do what is best for you m’lady
    Miri: *smiles*
    Galahad: but we could use the help
    Lavendar: *agree*
    Miri: *nods*
    Dezerai: agrees

    King Blackthorn: Everyone, keep an eye on Yew over the coming weeks
    Dezerai: yes Sire
    King Blackthorn: And report anything you see there
    King Blackthorn: Now...
    King Blackthorn: I have another matter to address...
    Dezerai: My Kin Theresa runs thru there every day I shall ask her for reports
    King Blackthorn: Thank you, Dezerai
    King Blackthorn: In regards to what you may have heard about goblin kidnapping. I’ve spoken with both green and grey goblin clan elders...
    Dezerai: *leans forward to see the King's face*
    Dezerai: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: They are still investigating what is happening.
    But Im confident I know the culpret...
    Dezerai: *checks her notes*
    King Blackthorn: *sigh*
    King Blackthorn: Years ago, before Magnencia fell, I worked with an alchemist named Eric. Old and with flailing health, he was searching for an easy recipe for the elixir of immortality.
    He was confident he could create it with minimal resources.
    It was only later I found that he using goblins in his experiments. Goblins and humans don’t have the best record of getting along... There has been wars between the races for years
    Galahad: Mum :)
    Dezerai: *waves to Mum and looks for cookies*
    Queen Mum: My sincere apology for being late
    Queen Mum: My Lama had a flat
    Galahad: lol
    Dezerai: hehe
    King Blackthorn: It's alright, Queen Mum
    Miri: *smiles*
    King Blackthorn: Please take your seat
    King Blackthorn: *smiles*
    Queen Mum: :)
    King Blackthorn: The governors can fill you in on our previous discussion regarding cities without governorship
    Queen Mum: Thank you
    King Blackthorn: I'm discussing a more pressing matter in regards to goblin kidnapping and an alchemist I believe is behind it, where was I...
    Dezerai: war between the races
    King Blackthorn: Ahh yes, the alchemist was torturing and murdering goblins
    Lavendar: How terrible.
    King Blackthorn: What Eric was doing to these goblins was incomprehensible
    Queen Mum: *oh my*
    King Blackthorn: Dozens of goblins were slain in an effort to preserve his own life. I should have had him executed when I found out, but I banished him from the kingdom instead, Eric was old at the time I took pity on him.
    Dezerai: humm
    King Blackthorn: He should be gone by now...
    Dezerai: If not him then living kin, a son or daughter maybe?
    King Blackthorn: My fear is that he succeeded in creating the elixir
    King Blackthorn: *shakes head*
    King Blackthorn: not that I'm aware of
    Dezerai: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: He was a bit of a hermit, very smart but no family that I'm aware of. I’ve hired an alchemist by the name of Tomas...He will lead the investigation into the missing goblins
    Over the next few days... if you see a goblin in town, ask him if he knows anything. Tomas will want to know anything and everything for his investigation
    Dezerai: will there be a need for guards to travel with this Tomas? if so I shall send my best champion
    King Blackthorn: He is asking all forces to meet him this Wednesday...
    Dezerai: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: If it is in-fact Eric that is behind this, we are dealing with one powerful alchemist. Please don't harm any goblins you encounter unless they attack you first
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Miri: *nods*
    Dezerai: it shall be as you command Sire
    King Blackthorn: We want to keep the relationship between us as peaceful as possible. If there are no questions, I'd like to move on...
    King Blackthorn: *looks around*
    King Blackthorn: Lord Galahad
    Galahad: sire?
    King Blackthorn: Do you have anything to report?
    Galahad: Nay sire, although I was in yew today and all was normal and as for Jhelom...all is also well. I will be out of the kingdom on Wednesday and unable to help
    King Blackthorn: That is too bad, governor. Please keep an eye on Yew for us.
    Galahad: indeed nobody knows Yew like Miri
    King Blackthorn: And we will discuss our findings at the next meeting
    Galahad: aye sire
    King Blackthorn: Governor Magrathea
    Magrathea: *smiles*
    Magrathea: I have nothing to report at this time
    Galahad: m'lord? If I may?
    King Blackthorn: Thank you governor. Please keep an eye on Yew, as well
    Galahad: sorry to interrupt
    King Blackthorn: Yes, go ahead
    Galahad: sire, if it pleases you I do believe were you yourself to ask lady Miri she may accept just a thought highness
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Queen Mum: *smiles in agreement*
    King Blackthorn: I didn't want to put her on the spot after such a brief discussion... but if the lady is comfortable
    King Blackthorn: Miri, I know this is out of order. And please don't feel pressured for me being so direct...I would however like to fill these chairs
    Miri: Yew has been my home for many years..I will always protect it. If it please your Highness I will... serve again
    Lavendar: *cheers*
    Dezerai: *looks around his highness with begging eyes*
    Dezerai: YAY!
    King Blackthorn: Very well then
    Galahad: *claps politely*
    Queen Mum: *claps*
    Dezerai: oops sorry sire I did not mean to shout so loud
    King Blackthorn: I will make sure the seat is ready for you for our next meeting
    Dezerai: *claps*
    Miri: thank you Your Highness
    Miri: *smiles*
    King Blackthorn: Thank you Miri
    Lavendar: *smiles brightly*
    King Blackthorn: Forgive my forgetfulness... these bones are old
    Galahad: Governor *smiles*
    Miri: *smiles*
    King Blackthorn: Is Skara without governorship, as well?
    Dezerai: I believe so Sire
    Lavendar: I am unsure, Your Highness
    Lavendar: I was just wondering that myself.
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    Galahad: I happen to know the old governor there as well your highness he could perhaps be persuaded. We can discuss Skara at the next meeting.
    King Blackthorn: Governor Mum. Do you have anything to report?
    Queen Mum: Nothing about Britain but I do have a community announcement if I may
    King Blackthorn: Please
    Queen Mum: We will be holding our annual FALOWEEN Deco event. Deadline to enter is Sunday the 30th
    King Blackthorn: How wonderful
    Queen Mum: I will be posting the information on the regular areas
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Galahad: Way to go Mum :)
    King Blackthorn: What type of event is it?
    Queen Mum: We will have the tour on Friday the 4th of November. It is a deco contest where the community awards top 3 entries handsomely
    Galahad: indeed
    Queen Mum: And each entry receives a thank you award of 2 million each. It is for any facet on Sonoma
    Galahad: :)
    Dezerai: :)
    Queen Mum: This is our 10th year I think of doing it, I will have to check the books.
    Galahad: It's a big deal sire
    Queen Mum: Then on the Tour we go to the homes for fun and look at all the creative designs
    King Blackthorn: I'm sure it will be a lot of fun. I will love to see the completed homes
    Queen Mum: Our Judges are from off Sonoma
    Queen Mum: and do not know the home owners
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    Queen Mum: Thank you for letting me announce the event
    King Blackthorn: Please let me know if there is anything the Kingdom can do to help
    Queen Mum: I certainly will, thank you
    King Blackthorn: Any other news to report, Governor?
    Queen Mum: No we are quiet citizens in Britain busy harvesting for winter season
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: Thank you, governor
    King Blackthorn: April
    Queen Mum: my pleasure Sire
    King Blackthorn: Do you have any news, Governor Showers?
    April Showers: No news at this time..
    King Blackthorn: Thank you, governor. Please keep an eye for goblins and on Yew
    April Showers: Yes,we will
    King Blackthorn: Governor Dezerai
    Dezerai: Sire All is well in the island city of Moonglow.
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    Dezerai: Trades are doing very well and the people are getting ready for the winter months. All is good since the Bots are no longer a concern
    King Blackthorn: I should let you know to caution your people... The last time I saw Eric, the alchemist, was in your city
    Dezerai: ahh
    Dezerai: I shall alert the city guards to be watchful
    King Blackthorn: Thank you, governor
    Dezerai: My pleasure Sire
    King Blackthorn: Governor Lavendar
    King Blackthorn: Do you have any news to report?
    Lavendar: All is well in the city of bridges, Your Highness. The leaves are turning and the air is chill. We are looking forward to fall. I have been holding a monthly white net toss for the shard
    King Blackthorn: Ahh, yes
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Lavendar: but as Vesper does not have deep water to summon the deep sea creatures
    King Blackthorn: How did the last one turn out? Catch anything good?
    Lavendar: we are holding it in New Magincia. Oh indeed.
    Dezerai: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: When is the next one scheduled for?
    Lavendar: I was astonished that our fisher lady got an awesome catch. I was thinking of holding it before our next governor meeting in November holding it an hour and a half earlier for one hour
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    Lavendar: so people could have fun, but also make the Governor meeting on time.
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Lavendar: So that will be posted on Stratics and I hope people can come enjoy. I have brought 100 white nets, to summon the Scalis creature from the deep waters.
    King Blackthorn: That is quite a lot of nets
    Lavendar: Aye, it took over a year to acquire them.
    Dezerai: *smiles*
    Lavendar: I am happy we can do this. I will be planning other events later in the year but that is all for now. Thank you.
    King Blackthorn: Thank you, governor. If there is nothing else from the governors, I have a few more announcements. Then we can open it up to the floor. It was brought to my attention, there has been a lack of decoration for the holiday season
    Lavendar: Oh!
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Lavendar: A subject dear to my heart!
    King Blackthorn: It appears the person coordinating decorations for your events resigned. There has been a replacement hired. Once appropriate, I'll make sure to relay contact information
    Lavendar: Thank you very much.
    Dezerai: oh thank you, Sire
    King Blackthorn: If, for some reason, you are unable to make contact by mid-November, please speak with me I will personally make sure our cities have decoration for the winter holidays
    Miri: *smiles*
    Lavendar: Thank you ever so much, Your Highness.
    Dezerai: I ha d asked for holiday deco but was unaware of the lack of someone to handle it
    Dezerai: I am glad there is someone now
    King Blackthorn: The final matter I'd like to address is this meeting time. I wanted to keep a set schedule, but I know the first Sunday of the month doesn't work for all. Is there a better Sunday, or better day that works for everyone?
    Galahad: Any Sunday is ok with me as it is the only day I don't work
    King Blackthorn: This meeting does not need to be on a weekend
    Lavendar: I believe we moved it to Sunday so Sir Galahad could make it.
    Dezerai: Sunday is good for me as well
    Galahad: Nods
    Galahad:Thank you Governor Lavendar
    Queen Mum: How about the 2nd Sunday of each month
    Lavendar: You are welcome, Lord Galahad.
    Dezerai: Any Sunday of the month is fine for me
    Galahad: that would be fine sire and any time you all would like would be ok as well
    King Blackthorn: Ok, so we will keep it to Sunday, but I may move the occurance to the second Sunday
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Queen Mum: That way we don't hit the Holiday Season time *grins*
    Lavendar: Just let us know, if our first regular meeting will be the 2nd Sunday as I will schedule the net toss for the same day. Thank you.
    King Blackthorn: Keep an eye out. I'll make my decision and inform the town criers within the day
    Dezerai: will we keep the same time or is that to late for ?
    Galahad: aye
    Queen Mum: 7pm Pacific is a good time for me as well
    King Blackthorn: The time seems to work for everyone
    Lavendar: This time works for me
    Lavendar: as there are times I could not make it earlier.
    Dezerai: aye its is for me as well Queen Mum
    Lavendar: Right now it works for me.
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: We will keep this time
    Dezerai: good
    Lavendar: Thank you. We spent a long time trying to figure out what worked for all of us last term
    Galahad: indeed
    Lavendar: as Galahad could not make
    Dezerai: *nods*
    Lavendar: the meetings as they were originally on Wednesday
    Galahad: Aye
    Lavendar: so we worked out Sunday and this time as best for those who are currently Governors
    King Blackthorn: *nods* Then it will just be the occurance that will change. Thank you, governors. Citizens
    Galahad: welcome highness
    King Blackthorn: The table is open to questions
    Dezerai: I have one request for the next meeting
    Dezerai: Mum please bring cookies
    King Blackthorn: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: cookies are always welcome here
    King Blackthorn: Alright, if no citizen has a contribution, and there is nothing further from the governors
    King Blackthorn: You are all dismissed
    Galahad: thank you sire
    Dezerai: I honor thee
    Galahad: congratulations Miri
    Galahad: and thank you for agreeing
    Dezerai: yes welcome back!
    Lavendar: Thank you Lady Miri
    Miri: Thank you ...I think
    Miri: *laughs*
    Lavendar: you have been missed.
    Galahad: lol
    Magrathea: Farewell all
    Queen Mum: I did :p
    Dezerai: hehe
    Galahad: farewell
    You manage to eat the food, but you are stuffed!
    Miri: Goodnight Magrathea
    You are simply too full to eat any more!
    Queen Mum: See you all soon and Good night :)
    Dezerai: I ate two thank you
    Galahad: good night Queen Mum
    Galahad: thank you highness
    King Blackthorn: Thank you for the cookies
    Galahad: good night
    King Blackthorn: they are delicious
    Dezerai: *hugs*
    Lavendar: *hugs*
    Dezerai: later milady
    Queen Mum: :) A cookie a day ~ keeps the blues away!
    Miri: Best cookies in all of Sosaria
    Galahad: indeed
    April Showers: Hi Cinderella
    King Blackthorn: Have a good evening, everyone
    Galahad: I will walk out with you m'lady
    Cinderella: hi
    April Showers: :)
    Galahad: good evening sire
    Miri: Good night Sire
    Dezerai: as you Sire as you :)
    Dezerai: farewell till next

    With those word she moves to the Castle gate-bridge, opens her rune book,
    Dezerai: Kal Ort Por - Recall
    In Moonglow a quick check of the city gate guards and a quite word with the Sergeant of the guards, nothing to report all is well.

    Thus ends this report.

    Governor meeting1.jpg Governor meeting2.jpg

    Cities that will be pending King’s choice above are without Governors. Any Citizen of those cities may petition HRM for that vacant seat. You must be a citizen of that city and have a City Loyalty of at least adored to accept the office of Governor. At the time of this posting those cities awaiting King's choice may have changed, be sure to check your city stone. I have just one request if you decided to ask for a governorship, please make the meetings.

    PROS - Great information
    CONS - None
    A great meeting with the King. I love that the people on your fair shard are so active in these. Our poor shard only had two governors attend the last two town council. You all are setting a great example.
