Martial Law Ends. The New Britannian High Council is Announced WarderDragon As was announced at the Spring Faire, the Guard, and its Captain, intends to relinquish their hold on Britannia, and end martial law, upon the formation of a New Britannian Government. Last night, the formation process - dubbed the Jenkins Plan - was revealed. The details are as follows. There will be 6 Seats on the New Britannian High Council. The Council will rule in the name of the Virtues, and Lord British, until his ...messianic return. One seat is secured for the Captain of the Guard, Jenkins. Another will be granted to the Aristocracy. Four will be selected via Election. Canidates who wish to run should petition the Guard. The four will serve a term of 6 months, must be Britannian Citizens, and must swear an oath to defend and preserve the realm. Criminals, and Citizens of Other Realms (i.e. the Orient, Ter Mur.) will be barred from election. In addition, a seat will be reserved for all Sovereign Border Kingdoms - Shieba, Dawn, Avalon, Ter Mur, Heavens Forge and the Empire of the East - in good standing with Britannia. (While the Britannian Government doesn't have the power to enforce its claim on other territories, other Independents and Townships will not be granted a Seat at this time.) No mention was made of the Signoria of Luna, the Necrarchs of Umbra, Papua, Delucia, or Ver Lor Reg, all independent of the Crown. Some from the Isle of Magincia seemed to be ...displeased at the suggestion of their submission to Britannia, and declared their Independence. Captain Jenkins challenged this view, declaring that Britannia will not recognize a Magincian State.
