Governor’s Meeting 4-9-17Prior to the Governor’s Meeting we were all entertained by the Legionary Lady Petra, who on the first two white nets brought forth the monster of the depth, the Scalis. Sorry I was very busy during this and forgot to take a snap or two.
Roll call for the Meeting:
Lady Queen Mum
Lord Clym of Clough
Absent this evening:
King Blackthorn: Good evening governors. Evening citizens and friends. *motions open hands to the floor* Please take your seats. I heard there was a net toss in New Magincia earlier this evening... Was it eventful?
Dezerai: yes indeed
Lavendar: There were many lovely gray robes as special prizes for the participants.
Seraph Stargazer: hehe
Dezerai: the Lady Petra did summon two on the first two nets
Lavendar: I believe there were a few other prizes as well.
King Blackthorn: *grins*
Lavendar: And we had a distinguished visitor who honored us with his presence.
King Blackthorn: Death robes are hard to avoid with those. How have you all been since we last met?
KHAN: Fine Sire, getting acclimated to my City
Queen Mum: *busy*
Dezerai: *waves to Seraph*
King Blackthorn: Do you know where the governors of Minoc and Trinsic are?
Lavendar: The Governor of Minoc had an emergency and had to take her leave today.
Seraph Stargazer: *waves back*
Dezerai: Minoc Governor had to take her Prince Charming to the healers. Trinsic I am not sure of.
King Blackthorn: Ahh... understandable. Next month, I will be unavailable to hold this meeting on the second Sunday of the month.
Lavendar: Ah, I am happy to hear that as many of us will not be available either
Dezerai: reschedule for another Sunday?
King Blackthorn: I propose a Wednesday or Sunday the twenty eighth
Dezerai: Sunday is best
King Blackthorn: *nods*
King Blackthorn: I will make note to tell the town criers
Clym of Clough: I cannot attend on the 28th, sorry
Clym of Clough: oh wait, yes I can
Clym of Clough: days confused
Dezerai: OK ahh good
Lavendar: I can plan to be here the 28th. I know Lord Galahad has difficulty if it isn't on Sunday
Miri: 28th is fine with me
King Blackthorn: *smiles*
Galahad: Aye Sundays are best for me but if I am the only hold up proceed without me
Dezerai: aye for me as well
King Blackthorn: We will keep it to a Sunday.
Queen Mum: 28th open for me as well
King Blackthorn: Alright, let's begin... First... I have a sensitive subject that I must share with you. It is about your late commander, Chimaera. I have spoken with our most powerful mages, alchemists and mystics. Throughout Britannia. And I have come to the conclusion that a resurrection of someone that has been taken by the darkness is a risk that we can not take.
Lavendar: Oh no
Galahad: so he's kinda like walking dead eh?
Miri: Poor fellow
King Blackthorn: I am unsure of what he is, exactly
King Blackthorn: but, As much as it pains me to have lost commander Chimaera. I was informed that the process of resurrection from another dimension requires a philosophers stone.
Dezerai: I see
Lavendar: Where can we find such a rare item?
King Blackthorn: This is the same method that the nefarious alchemists used to open a rift to another. You should not be able to find it. The creation and use of a philosophers stone is highly dangerous and unpredictable. I will not risk our Kingdom and there is no guarantee that this will bring Chimaera back, unharmed.
Dezerai: are we facing danger as great when Haven blew up?
King Blackthorn: There is no danger to us at this time...
Richard Garriott: The whole realm has been calm
King Blackthorn: Since the alchemical rift has been destroyed... Our land has been as calm is it can be. Now It seems not everyone abides by my ruling
King Blackthorn: Earlier today, one of my guards found an intruder in my library
King Blackthorn: Books on alchemy and necromancy in her hands
KHAN: Who was it?
King Blackthorn: The guard was unable to apprehend the intruder. So her identity is unknown. She was quick and escaped over a balcony. And she was unsuccessful in collecting whatever book she was seeking. *motions to stack of books on table* I believe she was looking for the recipe to create a philosophers stone.
King Blackthorn: Now
Queen Mum: *hmm*
King Blackthorn: This could be unrelated to commander Chimaera. And I could be wrong
But I'm not taking any chances. I'll be locking up these books in the dungeon below my castle. And I'll be hiring additional guards to keep them out of the thief’s hands. But please be on the lookout for any suspicious woman you see around town or my castle. I want to know what she is after and who she is. *collects books*
Clym of Clough: Do you have a description or a name perhaps?
King Blackthorn: According to the guard, she had dark black hair...
King Blackthorn: And was wearing leather armor
Dezerai: human or elf?
Clym of Clough: ah, well that helps a bit anyhow
King Blackthorn: She was human
Lavendar: Sounds like you could be describing me I assure you I did not do it!
King Blackthorn: *laughs* You seem to fit that description very well
Queen Mum: maybe someone disguised as a woman?
Dezerai: very true
King Blackthorn: It's possible. It could be a trained mage that polymorphed himself or itself
King Blackthorn: Regardless, that's all the information I was given from the guard. Now while we search for a new commander. I'll be holding a ceremony of merit for the Royal Britannia Guard later this month
Queen Mum: *look for suspicious and unknown beings*
King Blackthorn: For your bravery and valor, I'll be awarding you with medals. For all you’ve done to keep our lands safe, it is important to me that you are acknowledged.
Lavendar: It is our honor to serve, Your Highness
Dezerai: mine champion shall attend Sire
King Blackthorn: I have a question for you all. Your town taxes...
King Blackthorn: How many of you are having trouble gathering funds from your citizens
Miri: *raises hand*
KHAN: *raises hand*
Dezerai: *Raise hands*
Lavendar: I would venture to guess it is all of us, our Highness
Dezerai: Travel from city to city is very slow
King Blackthorn: And you don't expect a change?
King Blackthorn: If that's the case, the royal coffers may need to step in
Lavendar: I fear our treasury is being quickly depleted.
King Blackthorn: If none of my territories can pay their taxes, that isn't a good sign for our economy. So I proposed town revitalization.
Queen Mum also had a little surprise for us, funds from an auction were disputed among the Governors present for this meeting, these funds were to place on the city stone as soon as possible.
King Blackthorn: The royal bank will contribute to alleviate some of the pain, as well. But that method is unsustainable. But until we can find a solution that lasts, I will step in. I will start to I will begin to intervene and help with the towns that need it most.. Now... A longterm solution will be discussed For now, we work with what is within our control. There is a mailbox at the Hall of Commons. We are revitalizing Yew first. If you have specific requests or suggestions, please contact me. Or... if you have anything you would like to donate please put it in the Hall of Commons mailbox.
King Blackthorn: *looks around room* That is all the announcements I have for this evening. Governor Galahad...
King Blackthorn: Do you have any news to report on Jhelom
Galahad: All is very well in Jhelom...all Fighters are ready
King Blackthorn: Good to hear, governor. KHAN... welcome to governorship.
KHAN: Magincia is well. I am getting acclimated to the city. We actually have some pets for sale! and thank you
King Blackthorn: Thank you, governor KHAN
KHAN: Thank you Sire
King Blackthorn: Governor Mum, any news on the capital
Queen Mum: Yes Sire with the permission of the Governor of Moonglow we would like to request the use of their cotton field near the Royal Zoo for our annual Bunny Bashing on Monday April 17th
Lavendar: Excellent idea!
Dezerai: By all means yes Mum you have our permission
King Blackthorn: Ahh... what a nice idea. As long as the governor permits it...
Queen Mum: it will be held at 9pm Central if that is good for the city of Moonglow
King Blackthorn: and the crops aren't harmed too much
Queen Mum: oh no Sire we help toil the dirt so the crops will be able to grow abundantly
Queen Mum: *thank you* and all is well in Britain
King Blackthorn: Governor Dezerai, how is Moonglow in the aftermath of all the chaos of last month?
Dezerai: The isle of Moonglow has been quite. Spring is in the air and true love is also. But with the recent acts here at the Castle
King Blackthorn: *listens*
Dezerai: I will be sure to alert our guards at all Libraries of the arcane arts.
King Blackthorn: Governor Clym of Skara
Clym of Clough: Our fair citizens/farmers of Skara Brae have started planting some crops and are now waiting to plant more. Nothing exciting happening in Skara I'm afraid
King Blackthorn: It is always nice to hear that... I love winter... but I love winter more when it's over
Queen Mum: *agree* rainpoop is yucky!
King Blackthorn: *laughs* Governor Lavendar How is Vesper?
Lavendar: All is well in Vesper although we are in mourning for the loss of our Commander
King Blackthorn: *nods*
Miri: Very sad
Lavendar: The city is looking especially lovely after the long winter snows
King Blackthorn: I understand, Governor Lavendar
Clym of Clough: He'll be back, he can't leave us!!
Lavendar: Oh i do hope so. We have spring wildflowers bursting into bloom and it is rumored
Lavendar: that the Easter Bunny is planning to hop over for a visit
Dezerai: *perks up*
Lavendar: possibly on the weekend. I hope to see him!
King Blackthorn: Any specific date?
Lavendar: I would think he would wish to avoid the 17th
Lavendar: I would think he would wish to avoid the 17th
King Blackthorn: sounds like it
Lavendar: I am thinking he might come by on the 15th with some easter baskets for the good folks of Sonoma
King Blackthorn: *makes note*
Lavendar: Please all keep a lookout
Dezerai: *sends off a pigeon to home*
King Blackthorn: *smiles*
King Blackthorn: Thank you Lavendar. Governor Miri
King Blackthorn: Any news from Yew
Miri: Yew is doing fine Sire..I have been touring the town to see what is needed to spruce it up
Miri: I noticed our councillors hall is empty!
Dezerai: oh no!
King Blackthorn: Ahh...
Miri: I know!!
King Blackthorn: Let's plan to address that
King Blackthorn: We can hire the finest carpenters
Miri: I would also like to do something with Queen Daawns grave
Miri: maybe pretty it up a bit more
King Blackthorn: Yes... I agree
KHAN: Great Idea
Dezerai: she was a truely lovely lady of the lands
Miri: I assume we wont be doing anything with the prison?
King Blackthorn: Please send me a suggestion or place something in the mailbox
Miri: Aye I will
King Blackthorn: The prison is there to hold our prisoners
Miri: no flowers for them!
King Blackthorn: It doesn't need to be revitalized
