    Flair:the interviewer is ready
    Flair:in the white area please
    Kyronix: Do I get to sit here?
    Yosef:hello sir
    Yosef:I am yosef the miner
    Yosef:nice to meet you
    Kyronix:Nice to meet you as well
    Yosef:i will be taking over minoc next term
    Kyronix:How exciting
    Tahani:Welcome to Election Hoopla Night II
    Kyronix:Excited to be here, thanks for the invitation
    Tahani:im wondering how you feel about all this
    Kyronix:Warm and Squishy
    Kyronix:But that's how i normally feel
    Kyronix:*pokes self*
    Tahani:they tell me you are the designer responsible for all this
    Tahani:are you happy with the results?
    Kyronix:So far i think its been exciting to see what players across all the shards have done
    Kyronix:And I'm very happy with it, particularly when I see things like this
    Kryonix:This is extraordinary
    Kryonix:It purposely was left very open ended, because we wanted to see what players would do with it
    Kryonix:From that it allows us to examine what needs to be changed
    Kryonix:And what we can add moving forward
    Tahani: This world has always been a world where creativity is the best part
    Tahani:all the Governors want to know
    Tahani:how will you support them
    Tahani:will you give them the tools they need to create this over and over?
    Tahani:without grief?
    Kyronix:Its something we have to be very careful with
    Kyronix:Because implementing something that is designed to prevent people from griefing
    Kyronix:Can very quickly and unfortuantely turn into a tool just to grief
    Kyronix:That being said though, I think there were some great ideas from the global governor's thread
    Kyronix:And we'll be looking to implement some of those in a future publish
    Kyronix:The important thing to remember is this isn't going to become abandonware
    Kyronix:So we'll be making updates so long as there is interest
    Tahani:The Governors will put in extraordinary effort if you support them
    Tahani:i think i can say that for all of them
    Tahani:will you be adding more additions like Vesper's stables?
    Tahani:for other towns?
    Kyronix:The requests portion of the system is something we've been kind of navigating our way through
    Kyronix:And as you may suspect is a very popular feature
    Kyronix:Somethings are pretty easy for us to do, others not so much
    Kyronix:What appears to be simple on the surface, like removing some trees for example
    Kyronix:is a little more complicated
    Kyronix:Anything that is a worldbuilding change like that is always tricky
    Kyronix:We are trying to find ways to streamline that process for the future
    Kyronix:So we can get additions added to more cities in a more efficient manner
    Kyronix:Since those changes are going to be across all shards anyway
    Kyronix:The worldbuilding ones I mean, like the Vesper stables
    Tahani:Will you be including the Player towns and other towns like Sepent's Hold?
    Tahani:we held this here for a reason
    Kyronix: Player towns gets tricky
    Kyronix:There are some that are strongly rooted in the shard and its history
    Kyronix:And have become pillars of the shards very existence
    Kyronix:Others come and go very quickly
    Kyronix:That being said giving more for those in player towns to do is definitely something
    Kyronix:That's been kicked around before
    Kyronix:One of the things that makes Britannia come alive
    Kyronix:And adds such a unique feel to the shards
    Kyronix:As for other NPC towns
    Kyronix:Like Serp's and the like
    Kryonix:Where its appropriate given the current state of the Kingdom
    Kyronix:Not sure the Sultan of Nujel'm would be keen to have a King's Governor Stomping about his island
    Tahani:but there are a lot of Player towns
    Tahani:that have put in years of effort
    Tahani:and would love to be included
    Tahani:A lot has been said regarding the voting system
    Tahani:will there be any more changes to it?
    Kyronix:Sorry I missed that last question
    Kyronix:What was it again?
    Tahani:will there be anymore changes to the voting system?
    Kyronix:We'll continue to see how things play out and if adjustments need to be made
    Kyronix:We'll make them
    Kyronix:I saw there was a call for longer voting terms
    Kyronix:erm governor terms rather
    Kyronix:Which I think has some merit
    Kyronix:So we'll see how it goes
    Tahani:Any thought to Felucca?
    Kyronix:For right now Felucca is under the jurrisdiction of the faction warlords
    Kyronix:So a King's Governor doesn't really fit there just yet
    Kyronix: Depends how things play out in the future
    Tahani:One last question Lord Kyronix
    Tahani:and we'll let you enjoy the evening
    Kyronix:Go for it
    Tahani:what would you like to tell us about the system
    Tahani: Perhaps new upcoming things?
    Tahani:i need a scoop *grins*
    Kyronix:Nothing to report just yet
    Kyronix:Our next step is to kind of evaluate
    Kyronix:What has gone on so far
    Kyronix:And see what changes we can make, what tidbits we can pull from the Governors and citizens
    Kyronix:As to what they would like to see
    Kyronix:And then execute on a plan for the future
    Tahani:I would like to say on my own behalf
    Tahani:that its important that you don't make everything the same
    Tahani:each shard is proud of thier own unique history
    Tahani:its what make us love our shards
    Tahani:ive been an Atlantean for 16 years
    Tahani: Our history is important to us
    Kyronix:That's great
    Tahani: On behalf of all the citizens of Atlantic
    Tahani:i'd like to thank you for your hard work Lord Kryonix
    Kyronix:Well I can't take all the credit
    Tahani:i'm happy you get to come see it for yourself
    Kyronix:None of this would be possible without the tireless efforts of our Event Moderators
    Kyronix:And of course you guys who participate in it
    Kyronix:So a huge kudos to them and you all
    Tahani:we appreciate all you have done as well *smiles*
    Tahani:you are free to go have fun *smiles*
    Kyronix:Thanks for having me
    Tahani:it was our pleasure
    Kyronix:I like the white chairs
    Tahani:Three cheers for Lord Kyronix?
    Tahani:hehe thanks
    Kyronix:Natural dyes?
    Tahani:thats my best seller
    Tahani: Ok its time to turn the interviews over to Flair from Stratics
    Tahani:Welcome Flair
    Kyronix: Do you have more questions for me?
    Flair:we just thought you liked our chair
    Kyronix:I think this is all awesomesauce
    Kyronix: Pretttty
