To help enable voters in Minoc to make an informed choice in the governorship election, we present a summary of the candidates' campaign manifestos. Feel free to use this thread to ask additional questions, send messages of support, or just heckle the candidates. Ladra's manifesto: Why are you running for governor? Over the last few weeks I have received mail from several hundred concerned citizens of Minoc, demanding a change of politics. They are not happy with the current rulers of their town. Since I'm already Mayor of the bordering town it's natural that they come to me for help. They see the wealthy, crime-free and eco-friendly utopia that is Barter Town and want a piece of that. "Can Barter Town help?", they asked. Yes, we can! Since I can not bear to see a fellow Sosarian in distress, here I am, stepping up to help. Vote for me and you will see change! Have you any previous political experience? I say that me being the Mayor of Barter Town puts a lot of legitimacy in my favor. But yes, of course I have had other experiences. For example, I'm in charge of security in Luna many nights a week. I'm also the former leader of *mumbles something incoherent* And do not forget about *coughs*. So yeah, lots of previous experience... What qualities do you think you possess which would make you a good governor? I'm very upfront and honest about what I want to do. And I get things done. But I really want to press on how honest I am; transparent and honest. Very honest. Are you planning on running any trade deals? If so, which ones and how do you intend to finance them? I make daily trades, yes. Lots of them. *grins* Do you have any plans to petition the King for town improvements? Absolutely. There will be no chance for any other governors to get a word with the King. I'm going to be glued to him. And I'll be watching his pockets to oversee that Minoc gets its fair share. Do you have any other plans/promises for the towns, e.g. events, etc.? Of course. With an increased co-operation with Barter Town there will be lots of things happening. The epic Boom Fest was just a warm-up. Would you have any particular policies towards specific groups, e.g. murderers, thieves, elves, mages, etc.? I have very strong opinions on crimes. Every normal person feels that crime should be abolished and that criminals are the cancer in today's society. And I have very strong opinions about that, yes. What do you think of your opponent, Possum? He seems like a nice guy. And that's his problem, he is too nice. Lacking in leadership and confidence in his own agenda. We have already read quotes where he endorses me. Anyone serious about making a change can not give up before the election even starts. Any other thoughts or messages you would like to pass on to your electorate? A push-over can't lead, vote for Ladra as Governor of Minoc! Possum's manifesto: Why are you running for governor? To rid our town of the Zombie King's influence. Have you any previous political experience? I was the fastest with a machete in high school. What qualities do you think you possess which would make you a good governor? I am good at killing Zombies. Are you planning on running any trade deals? If so, which ones and how do you intend to finance them? That will be up for discussion amongst Barter Town residents. Do you have any plans to petition the King for town improvements? I do not negotiate with Zombies. Do you have any other plans/promises for the towns, e.g. events, etc.? I will do my best to protect our town from the Zombie King's influence. Would you have any particular policies towards specific groups, e.g. murderers, thieves, elves, mages, etc.? I welcome all people to our town. What do you think of your opponent, Ladra? Wonderful person. I wish her luck. *looks for his wallet* Any other thoughts or messages you would like to pass on to your electorate? The Zombie King will be laid to rest.
