    [19:01:09] [Joseph Frostmore]: *quirks a brow at the sudden appearance of the Kingsguard*
    [19:02:42] [Istari]: ah here he comes
    [19:02:49] [Tala]: My lord
    [19:02:52] [King Blackthorn]: *nods*
    [19:03:04] [King Blackthorn]: Please... sit.
    [19:03:17] [Tatiana Thorn]: *sits on her stool*
    [19:03:17] [Ronnie Van Zant]: King is getting cupided
    [19:03:20] [Evil Eve]: well well the King is here
    [19:03:26] [King Blackthorn]: Good evening everyone.
    [19:03:28] [Evil Eve]: hello
    [19:03:32] [Tatiana Thorn]: good evening sire
    [19:03:33] [Lew]: *nods head*
    [19:03:35] [Queen Arya]: Hail sire
    [19:03:46] [King Blackthorn]: We are going to try and make things quick this evening, however we do have business to attend to
    [19:03:52] [King Blackthorn]: So let's get to it, shall we?
    [19:03:59] [Tatiana Thorn]: *nods*
    [19:04:25] [King Blackthorn]: First up, is the Banner Towns.
    [19:04:35] [Tala]: *analyzing any threats to the king*
    [19:05:01] [Lew]: *looks around*
    [19:05:02] [King Blackthorn]: As many of you have likely seen I have written down a few particulars...
    [19:05:21] [King Blackthorn]: So that we can discuss the issue in greater detail.
    [19:06:07] [King Blackthorn]: Secondly is the matter of the Occupation of the Falling Waters Fortress.
    [19:06:48] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Tazar has shown himself, through his actions to be unwilling to compromise and...
    [19:06:56] [King Blackthorn]: Made himself a traitor to his native lands.
    [19:07:19] [King Blackthorn]: As such, his lands are occupied by Kingsguard, until this council can come to rectify the situation.
    [19:07:48] [King Blackthorn]: While I acted unilaterally on this matter, how long the troops stay in place is up to this council.
    [19:08:08] [Tala]: DEATH TO THE FALSE KING!
    [19:08:11] [King Blackthorn]: However, I believe that Lord Tazar should be made to answer for the murder of Yosef.
    [19:08:23] [Evil Eve]: oh myu
    [19:08:29] [A Goddess]: *blinks*
    [19:08:35] [Joseph Frostmore]: *looks shocked*
    [19:08:43] [Evil Eve]: he went poof
    [19:08:44] [aulbrey]: uhhh
    [19:08:48] [Lew]: *glances at the empty chair*
    [19:08:51] [Queen Arya]: can we lock the doors please
    [19:08:55] [Shinigami]: heh just like the coward he is
    [19:08:56] [Queen Arya]: can we lock the doors please
    [19:08:58] [Evil Eve]: mayb tarzan got him
    [19:08:58] [Istari]: got zapped
    [19:09:05] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
    [19:09:10] [Lew]: what just happened sire
    [19:09:23] [King Blackthorn]: Tala has found herself suitibly occupied.
    [19:09:31] [King Blackthorn]: *shakes his head*
    [19:09:52] [The Necromaster]: Sir Blackthorn. As representative of the Necromancers in Umbra, I must protest your actions in our lands.
    [19:10:04] [Corinthian]: There's a dead huy over here
    [19:10:08] [King Blackthorn]: *looks across the table*
    [19:10:09] [The Necromaster]: You have no authority there and your invasion of our lands is seen as an act of war.
    [19:10:16] [Tatiana Thorn]: oh my word
    [19:10:28] [Queen's Emissary]: I must also protest.
    [19:10:38] [King Blackthorn]: The act of war was comitted by Lord Tazar, Necromaster, and honestly, I refuse to let Malas...
    [19:10:39] [Tatiana Thorn]: oh my goodness
    [19:10:47] [King Blackthorn]: Become a hiding place for traitors and brigands.
    [19:10:48] [Corinthian]: * pushes bidy under carpet*
    [19:10:48] [Queen's Emissary]: Our Emissary to Falling Waters Fortress was brutally slaughtered by your guards.
    [19:11:06] [Queen's Emissary]: we also view this as an act of war and a violation of diplomatic immunity.
    [19:11:24] [King Blackthorn]: The city is under siege, approaching it is foolish.
    [19:11:36] [The Necromaster]: Then you reject our soverienty?
    [19:11:38] [Tatiana Thorn]: *shakes head*
    [19:11:49] [Lew]: *looks back at Galathan*
    [19:11:57] [Galathan]: *loks to Lew*
    [19:11:59] [King Blackthorn]: Necromaster, I reject the idea of letting a man murder a Governor then flee into Malas for...
    [19:12:01] [Lew]: did you bring any asprin?
    [19:12:02] [King Blackthorn]: Safety.
    [19:12:05] [Galathan]: *nods*
    [19:12:09] [Galathan]: *hands him so*
    [19:12:13] [Galathan]: *some*
    [19:12:25] [Lew]: *takes pills*
    [19:12:27] [The Necromaster]: And yet we have reports of your own pardoning of a known mass murderer?
    [19:12:39] [The Necromaster]: I must question your actions and honor, Sir.
    [19:12:43] [Ivory Skyfire]: now i know why i avoid politics
    [19:12:45] [Queen Arya]: I could use a drink*
    [19:12:51] [Sinful Obsession]: *Nods*
    [19:12:51] [King Blackthorn]: Then you listen to one sides reports of a man who seeks to hide in his fortress.
    [19:12:57] [King Blackthorn]: And spin lies which benefit himself.
    [19:13:20] [The Necromaster]: Nay. I listen to the people of Trinsic.
    [19:13:35] [The Necromaster]: and others in Britannia
    [19:13:39] [King Blackthorn]: Governor Lew, speaks for the people of Trinsic.
    [19:13:54] [King Blackthorn]: Governor, have you anything to add, since this man says he speaks for you?
    [19:14:04] [Beldin Brightaxe]: While Ah donnae speak fer Minoc anymair,
    [19:14:07] [Lew]: to what sire
    [19:14:08] [The Necromaster]: I make no claim to speak for Lord Lew.
    [19:14:15] [The Necromaster]: Please do not twist my words.
    [19:14:17] [Lew]: to the Murder of citizens of Trinsic by Solus?
    [19:14:21] [Lew]: or to the words spoken here
    [19:14:23] [Beldin Brightaxe]: Ah must insist tha' justice be doon in thae murder ae Governor Yosef
    [19:14:29] [The Necromaster]: You made the alim that I listen to Lord Tazar and that is not true.
    [19:14:30] [King Blackthorn]: More to the words spoke here, but speak your peace.
    [19:14:32] [Lanfear]: Bann that Person
    [19:14:34] [The Necromaster]: I listen to the people.
    [19:14:50] [Lew]: *is quizzled*
    [19:15:06] [King Blackthorn]: Governor Beldin, please, step forward and represent your city once more.
    [19:15:11] [Tatiana Thorn]: *frets and chews her bottom lip*
    [19:15:17] [Beldin Brightaxe]: *nods*
    [19:15:50] [King Blackthorn]: Necromaster, put yourself in my seat, how would you see me respond to a man who murdered a...
    [19:15:51] [Ghajulgaah]: I didnt get to say anything to adhere did I
    [19:15:51] [Evil Eve]: it want come up let it be
    [19:15:53] [King Blackthorn]: Governor?
    [19:15:54] [Maelwyn]: Figures
    [19:16:02] [Maelwyn]: a dwarf for Minoc...
    [19:16:14] [The Necromaster]: I would look further to the cause of the act.
    [19:16:34] [The Necromaster]: cause and effect are key
    [19:16:39] [King Blackthorn]: So you would allow, a man to murder a governor, flee into Malas, and not in any way face
    [19:16:42] [King Blackthorn]: Justice or recourse?
    [19:16:46] [The Necromaster]: what led to such actions?
    [19:16:53] [The Necromaster]: Justice? *laughs*
    [19:17:00] [Beldin Brightaxe]: Where be thae manlin' sae accused?
    [19:17:00] [The Necromaster]: this is a mockery of Justice.
    [19:17:06] [Beldin Brightaxe]: kin he nae speak fer hisself?
    [19:17:19] [King Blackthorn]: *shakes his head*
    [19:17:20] [The Necromaster]: You are killing innocents in Malas and you allowed Solus to do the same.
    [19:17:33] [Beth Gilbert]: Depends on the reason for the murder..
    [19:17:37] [Beth Gilbert]: * smiles*
    [19:17:40] [King Blackthorn]: *shakes his head*
    [19:17:43] [The Necromaster]: I shall return to my people and let them know of your "Justice"
    [19:17:47] [Lanfear]: there is no reason for Murder
    [19:18:04] [King Blackthorn]: Tell your people to stay away and not attempt to interfear in the siege.
    [19:18:08] [King Blackthorn]: And there wont be a problem.
    [19:18:13] [Sinful Obsession]: Miss Ivory
    [19:18:16] [Joseph Frostmore]: *nods*
    [19:18:17] [Sinful Obsession]: would you like a chair?
    [19:18:20] [Ivory Skyfire]: oh hello
    [19:18:23] [Ivory Skyfire]: if there is one free
    [19:18:31] [King Blackthorn]: *sighs*
    [19:18:34] [Queen's Emissary]: and what of our Diplomat who went to the Fortress to sue for peace?
    [19:18:35] [Evil Eve]: *giggles*
    [19:18:40] [King Blackthorn]: And to think, I predicted an uneventful evening.
    [19:18:42] [Sinful Obsession]: this way
    [19:18:44] [Queen's Emissary]: slaughtered as are other innocents.
    [19:18:49] [Queen's Emissary]: *sighs*
    [19:18:59] [Ivory Skyfire]: *feels chair*
    [19:18:59] [Lew]: has there been such at this council sire
    [19:18:59] [Queen's Emissary]: I too see the Justice of Blackthorn.
    [19:19:03] [King Blackthorn]: Do you have a name Emissary?
    [19:19:04] [Ivory Skyfire]: thank you
    [19:19:19] [Smoke]: please remove your weapon
    [19:19:20] [Lanfear]: Have a seat Young one
    [19:19:24] [Queen's Emissary]: We who serve the Queen have no name.
    [19:19:28] [Sinful Obsession]: umm
    [19:19:32] [Ghajulgaah]: pardon
    [19:19:32] [Sinful Obsession]: she is Blind
    [19:19:34] [Queen's Emissary]: We give up our selves for her.
    [19:19:36] [King Blackthorn]: Very well, then I shall say this.
    [19:19:39] [Smoke]: sorry
    [19:19:39] [Sinful Obsession]: that is her walking stick
    [19:19:49] [Tatiana Thorn]: oh
    [19:19:50] [Sinful Obsession]: *shakes head*
    [19:19:51] [King Blackthorn]: Britannia has no claim to Malas, nor does your Queen.
    [19:19:53] [Tatiana Thorn]: he was talking to me?
    [19:20:10] [Shinigami]: yet it still invades malas despite having no claim?
    [19:20:11] [Queen's Emissary]: We see your desire is not for peace.
    [19:20:13] [Ivory Skyfire]: oh thank you, i didnt realize it was seen as a weapon
    [19:20:21] [Ivory Skyfire]: *folds staff up and tucks it in her pack*
    [19:20:25] [Sinful Obsession]: Your fine Miss Ivory
    [19:20:28] [Queen's Emissary]: We went to negotiate for peace and are instead killed
    [19:20:30] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Tazar is a Criminal, not a monarch.
    [19:20:48] [Katalin]: He is in lands not ruled by the King
    [19:20:48] [King Blackthorn]: His fortress is under siege because he is to be arrested.
    [19:20:57] [Beldin Brightaxe]: From thae actions ae a rebel ter tha crown
    [19:21:00] [Lew]: My Liege, why are we in Malas when there seem to be Briggands in Brit?
    [19:21:10] [King Blackthorn]: He lacks the authority to seek peace.
    [19:21:20] [King Blackthorn]: A criminal often begs for mercy.
    [19:21:21] [Queen's Emissary]: asit appears are you sir to murder innocents.
    [19:21:26] [King Blackthorn]: But they must first be caught.
    [19:21:40] [Tatiana Thorn]: *chews on her lip*
    [19:21:40] [Queen's Emissary]: I too shall return to my Queen with words of your "justice".
    [19:21:45] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Solus is no longer Governor.
    [19:21:49] [King Blackthorn]: Nor will he be again.
    [19:21:56] [Lew]: *claps*
    [19:21:57] [Evil Eve]: *giggles*
    [19:22:00] [Galathan]: *cheers*
    [19:22:04] [Evil Eve]: woohoo
    [19:22:05] [Ghajulgaah]: spits on the ground*
    [19:22:08] [Beldin Brightaxe]: Why would thae Queen send an emmisary there?
    [19:22:29] [King Blackthorn]: The gargoyles are seemingly interested in this fight.
    [19:22:31] [Beldin Brightaxe]: *shrugs*
    [19:22:35] [King Blackthorn]: Although I do not understand why.
    [19:22:39] [Evil Eve]: she may be hiding who you seek
    [19:22:56] [King Blackthorn]: Tazar is a criminal, not a monarch.
    [19:22:57] [Lew]: It seems everone is interested
    [19:23:09] [King Blackthorn]: Indeed Governor, indeed.
    [19:23:28] [King Blackthorn]: As I said, I leave the occupation of Falling Waters in the hands of this council.
    [19:23:36] [King Blackthorn]: A simple majority.
    [19:23:51] [King Blackthorn]: It was one of your own that was murdered here.
    [19:24:00] [Tatiana Thorn]: *raises hand tentatively*
    [19:24:01] [Ghajulgaah]: *cleans spit*
    [19:24:06] [King Blackthorn]: *nods to Lady Thorn*
    [19:24:11] [Tatiana Thorn]: sire?
    [19:24:14] [Lew]: *looks to Tatiana*
    [19:24:20] [King Blackthorn]: Speak good Lady. Please.
    [19:24:21] [Tatiana Thorn]: isnt malas part of another realm?
    [19:24:27] [Tatiana Thorn]: i mean
    [19:24:33] [Tatiana Thorn]: dont you rule here
    [19:24:33] [King Blackthorn]: Malas is a wild land, lawless frontier.
    [19:24:39] [Tatiana Thorn]: oh
    [19:24:41] [Beth Gilbert]: I beg to differ.
    [19:24:43] [Queen Arya]: coughs*
    [19:24:45] [Beth Gilbert]: It is not lawless..
    [19:24:54] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles slightly*
    [19:24:54] [Tatiana Thorn]: okay
    [19:25:04] [King Blackthorn]: I mean that it is not represented by a single body.
    [19:25:11] [Tatiana Thorn]: *nods*
    [19:25:12] [Queen Arya]: smiles*
    [19:25:16] [Tatiana Thorn]: yes sire, i understand
    [19:25:17] [King Blackthorn]: There are many strongholds, warlords, and townships.
    [19:25:31] [Tatiana Thorn]: *nods*
    [19:25:44] [King Blackthorn]: Truth be told, I long for Sanctus.
    [19:25:44] [Tatiana Thorn]: aye i have been to sanctus manytimes
    [19:26:03] [Beldin Brightaxe]: Paladins an' Necromancers
    [19:26:07] [King Blackthorn]: At least then I would have recourse to communicate with a governmental body.
    [19:26:11] [Galathan]: *looks at the king*
    [19:26:18] [Ivory Skyfire]: oh my
    [19:26:30] [Ivory Skyfire]: my town is hardly lawless
    [19:26:34] [Ivory Skyfire]: it is quite peaceful
    [19:26:49] [Lew]: *looks back at Ivory*
    [19:26:58] [Sinful Obsession]: Miss Ivory is here
    [19:27:00] [King Blackthorn]: Come, lets us continue on a more productive track.
    [19:27:02] [Sinful Obsession]: to talk abotu Sanctus
    [19:27:07] [Queen Arya]: claps*
    [19:27:12] [King Blackthorn]: Corinthian, do you come to speak for Yew this evening?
    [19:28:30] [Corinthian]: Aye, sir
    [19:28:38] [King Blackthorn]: The floor of this chamber is yours sir.
    [19:28:50] [Corinthian]: Your majesty, council members and citizens of Britannia. This is a moment of great import for all of us!
    [19:29:03] [Corinthian]: The synthesis of individual genius and industrious collaboration has brought forth 3 miraculous masterpieces of intoxication.
    [19:29:16] [Tatiana Thorn]: *blinks*
    [19:29:17] [Corinthian]: Thanks to the timely donation of the many puppies and kittens provided by Solus, we had an adequate amount of test subjects
    [19:29:18] [King Blackthorn]: *raises an eyebrow*
    [19:29:30] [Tatiana Thorn]: oh my
    [19:29:31] [Corinthian]: to ensure the safety of the product to the general public.
    [19:29:35] [Queen Arya]: looks up big words8
    [19:29:35] [A Goddess]: *stares*
    [19:29:43] [Corinthian]: The sole survivor, which we have named Rasputin, will be depicted on all future labels.
    [19:29:44] [Lew]: *scratches head*
    [19:29:46] [Ghajulgaah]: Mur rum!
    [19:29:54] [Corinthian]: -{ Shows twitching kitten }-
    [19:30:00] [woody]: wow
    [19:30:01] [Tatiana Thorn]: good lord
    [19:30:09] [King Blackthorn]: *rubs his temples*
    [19:30:11] [Corinthian]: The first product is a hearty but pretentious draught.
    [19:30:13] [Ghajulgaah]: kitty! *claps hands*
    [19:30:15] [Beth Gilbert]: * busts out laughing*
    [19:30:16] [Beldin Brightaxe]: Ah always knew them elflings were bad folk...
    [19:30:21] [Andrasta]: oh my god
    [19:30:22] [Corinthian]: For those who feel that the name rather than the quality of what they drink defines them , we give you, Rebel Rum.
    [19:30:29] [Lew]: you tested on puppies and kittens!!!!!
    [19:30:48] [King Blackthorn]: Maybe Solus changed his name to Biggering...
    [19:30:51] [King Blackthorn]: *whispers*
    [19:30:52] [Ivory Skyfire]: *narrows her eyes*
    [19:30:55] [Beldin Brightaxe]: Jist whit Brittania needs....
    [19:30:57] [Corinthian]: Secondly, specially tailored to the more discerning palate, a libation we hope to have his majesty formally endorse,
    [19:31:03] [Beldin Brightaxe]: A rum named fer rebels
    [19:31:16] [Corinthian]: perhaps even dub in a small ceremony as his official distillation of choice in the interest of increased sales.
    [19:31:28] [Worf Son of Mog]: 4got stuck on my cursor
    [19:31:32] [Corinthian]: We present Royal Ripple.
    [19:31:32] [Ivory Skyfire]: *whispers.. animals*
    [19:31:51] [Corinthian]: And finally the drink for every man, woman and occassion;
    [19:31:56] [Ghajulgaah]: *glares in lost void at kegs*
    [19:32:01] [King Blackthorn]: I do not think I will be putting my name next to anything endorsed by Solus...
    [19:32:02] [Corinthian]: whether it be a single nightcap with that special someone before joining them in the sack,
    [19:32:09] [King Blackthorn]: Or tested on kittens and puppies.
    [19:32:15] [Corinthian]: or many rounds joining a group of friends under the table for the evening.
    [19:32:22] [Ivory Skyfire]: *nods in agreement with the king*
    [19:32:26] [Corinthian]: We have selected a name as easy for numbed lips to pronounce after the 30th drink as it was for the first. We call it Booze!
    [19:32:27] [Khaleesi]: *nods* distastful indeed
    [19:32:42] [Corinthian]: Enjoy the free samples.

    [19:35:30] [Aradan]: King and governors... when you are ready to focus on the needs of the people of this land, I shall return.

    [19:39:40] [Joseph Frostmore]: Secondly
    [19:39:50] [King Blackthorn]: Is there anything the Crown can do to assist Vesper in this?
    [19:39:58] [Joseph Frostmore]: I wish to address the matter of these goblins
    [19:40:05] [Beth Gilbert]: * busts out laughing once more..*
    [19:40:08] [Joseph Frostmore]: They were blamed at first for the sickness
    [19:40:20] [Joseph Frostmore]: And they have overrun our beekeepers shop
    [19:40:29] [Khaleesi]: *nods looking between Lord Frostmore and the King*
    [19:40:33] [Beldin Brightaxe]: *growls at the mention of goblins*
    [19:40:40] [Joseph Frostmore]: THey made the place filthy and he has lost much business
    [19:40:42] [King Blackthorn]: Quite an Immigration of Goblins I hear.
    [19:40:50] [woody]: *burp* good stuff
    [19:40:52] [Joseph Frostmore]: Indeed your Grace

    [19:41:59] [Beldin Brightaxe]: bar it wonnae be....
    [19:42:01] [Ivory Skyfire]: *leans forward to listen*
    [19:42:06] [Joseph Frostmore]: They have not been very responsive
    [19:42:08] [Andrasta]: They are welcome in Zento
    [19:42:15] [King Blackthorn]: I see.
    [19:42:16] [Queen Arya]: same with Toad Town
    [19:42:28] [Joseph Frostmore]: We do not wish to see harm come to them
    [19:42:33] [Queen Arya]: I can speak to Ozog
    [19:42:40] [Joseph Frostmore]: For they have not physically harmed any of us.
    [19:42:51] [King Blackthorn]: Maybe Lord Frostmore, you could offer them greener pastures.
    [19:43:01] [King Blackthorn]: I think they are attracted to the climate in Vesper.
    [19:43:06] [Khaleesi]: Aye and they are welcome to visit anytime
    [19:43:08] [King Blackthorn]: Tis quite mild this time of year.
    [19:43:19] [Khaleesi]: *smirks*
    [19:43:29] [King Blackthorn]: But I understand the concern.
    [19:43:43] [King Blackthorn]: I shall see what can be done to gently encourage them to return to their home.
    [19:43:44] [Ivory Skyfire]: i dont think goblins and pixies get along...
    [19:43:50] [Khaleesi]: Perhasp the orchard behind your castle
    [19:43:50] [Sinful Obsession]: There is greener behind the castle here
    [19:43:50] [King Blackthorn]: Surely the beekeper is nearly out of honey?
    [19:43:53] [Joseph Frostmore]: THank you your Grace
    [19:43:54] [Khaleesi]: *looks behind her*
    [19:44:04] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles slightly at Khaleesi*

    [19:45:52] [Khaleesi]: *nods* We do have missing governor's
    [19:45:55] [King Blackthorn]: However, this evening I will speak for both Britain and the Crown.
    [19:46:10] [King Blackthorn]: I think the matter should be voted upon this evening.
    [19:46:15] [Khaleesi]: Understood.. Perhaps at the end..
    [19:46:19] [King Blackthorn]: To see where the council stands.
    [19:46:21] [King Blackthorn]: If nothing else.

    [19:48:36] [Tatiana Thorn]: he could be arrested
    [19:48:41] [Tatiana Thorn]: if ever he shows here again.........
    [19:48:44] [King Blackthorn]: I do not like it either, however I cannot allow Lord Tazar license to murder Governors...
    [19:48:57] [King Blackthorn]: Or assassinate the King because he lacks the courage to stand for himself politically.
    [19:48:58] [Tatiana Thorn]: *nods in understanding*
    [19:49:04] [Lew]: *looks to his right*
    [19:49:24] [Tatiana Thorn]: we continue to travel about offering wares to the folk
    [19:50:02] [Tatiana Thorn]: that is about all i have to say sire

    [19:50:52] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Lew.
    [19:50:55] [Corinthian]: She needs a drink
    [19:50:57] [King Blackthorn]: How fares Trinsic?
    [19:51:09] [Lew]: Trinsic is well sire
    [19:51:19] [Lew]: we competed our quarterly fishing contest
    [19:51:29] [Lew]: however I cannot at this time hand you the winning fish
    [19:51:36] [King Blackthorn]: Always a popular thing.
    [19:51:37] [King Blackthorn]: *nods*
    [19:51:38] [Lew]: as there was a problem at the taxedirmist
    [19:52:01] [Lew]: so I will have to meet you at a later date
    [19:52:06] [King Blackthorn]: Very well.
    [19:52:15] [Lew]: to the matter at hand
    [19:52:22] [Lew]: and i have qute the headache from it to be honest sire
    [19:52:35] [Lew]: As Governor I am no more important than the people I serve
    [19:52:36] [King Blackthorn]: Then we make an aching pair.
    [19:52:40] [King Blackthorn]: *rubs his forehead*
    [19:52:50] [Corinthian]: Remember that no fishing trip is complete without booze
    [19:52:50] [Lew]: so when I hear talk of murder I think to my people
    [19:53:14] [Lew]: Trinsic is and always has been a servant of sosaria
    [19:53:16] [Lew]: and its king
    [19:53:22] [Lew]: whomever that may be
    [19:53:37] [Lew]: but to that end, we stand to protect this land not others
    [19:53:50] [Lew]: I have heard reports of Briggands in Brit at this very moment
    [19:54:17] [Ivory Skyfire]: i myself was attacked and my poor pet paid the price
    [19:54:18] [Lew]: to this end I believe it important to bring the guard back to the city and deal with the chaos that was caused by solus
    [19:54:30] [Queen Arya]: 8that can happened when the governors are not around to protect its citizens*
    [19:54:44] [Lew]: excuse me?
    [19:54:53] [Jonathan]: FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
    [19:54:59] [King Blackthorn]: I believe she was speaking ill of Solus...
    [19:54:59] [woody]: get em
    [19:55:04] [Queen Arya]: aye
    [19:55:05] [Lew]: do you have something to add my lady?
    [19:55:07] [King Blackthorn]: Which seems right and proper.
    [19:55:20] [Lew]: ok, im sorry I am a bit on edge at the moment
    [19:55:30] [King Blackthorn]: I think we all are Governor.
    [19:55:41] [King Blackthorn]: Tensions are high.
    [19:55:51] [Lew]: if we were ot vote, that my vote would be to recall the guard and deal with problems here
    [19:55:56] [Beldin Brightaxe]: an thae drink be runnin' freely...
    [19:55:59] [Lew]: but keep the warrent issued for Tazar
    [19:56:18] [King Blackthorn]: *nods*
    [19:56:29] [Lew]: other than that, I have no other business for council tonight
    [19:56:36] [King Blackthorn]: Very well.
    [19:56:45] [King Blackthorn]: I shall speak for Britain this evening.
    [19:56:52] [A Goddess]: gee thanks for the recognition for winning the lighthouse competition lew.. lol
    [19:56:54] [Lew]: finally a voice of reason in Brit
    [19:57:01] [King Blackthorn]: And be the first to condemn the actions of the obviously insane Governor Solus.

    [19:58:18] [King Blackthorn]: The peasants of the city have erected banners in support of the Crown.
    [19:58:34] [King Blackthorn]: While several of the nobility continue to stand with Solus.
    [19:58:50] [King Blackthorn]: No doubt due to the one bilion cold sitting in the coffers.
    [19:58:55] [King Blackthorn]: *coughs*
    [19:58:57] [King Blackthorn]: Billion.
    [19:58:59] [Tatiana Thorn]: oh my word
    [19:59:19] [Lew]: funds you should use to rebuild the city
    [19:59:22] [King Blackthorn]: As such, the election for Britain should be an interesting one come next term.
    [19:59:29] [King Blackthorn]: I agree Lord Lew, I agree.
    [19:59:31] [Lew]: or transfer to trinsic to pay reperations
    [20:00:00] [King Blackthorn]: The dock district of Britain should be considered unsafe.
    [20:00:03] [Jonathan]: is the gold even real?
    [20:00:08] [Pink Panther]: Who cares for Fool's Gold?
    [20:00:10] [King Blackthorn]: As it seems to be a hotbed of illegal activity currently.
    [20:00:24] [King Blackthorn]: Due to the actions of Solus and the percieved uncertain situation in Britain.
    [20:00:27] [aulbrey]: *rubs head*
    [20:00:53] [King Blackthorn]: Repairs are on going, and should be completed soon.
    [20:01:03] [King Blackthorn]: *sighs*
    [20:01:04] [Tatiana Thorn]: *shakes head thinking*
    [20:01:21] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Beldin, you have the honor of speaking for the departed Governor Yosef.

    [20:06:38] [Andrasta]: Nothing has been revealed to me Sire
    [20:06:54] [King Blackthorn]: Hmm. My digging into the matter revealed nothing as well.
    [20:07:02] [King Blackthorn]: I will let you know should I hear anything.

    [20:07:41] [Andrasta]: it has been my honor to serve this council for three terms
    [20:07:58] [Andrasta]: after this meeting I retire to the shores of Zento
    [20:08:04] [King Blackthorn]: *nods*
    [20:08:05] [Andrasta]: to my beloved Blue Crane
    [20:08:12] [Tatiana Thorn]: *smiles warmly*
    [20:08:18] [King Blackthorn]: A peaceful land for retirement, you have certainly earned a rest.
    [20:08:28] [Andrasta]: i read your missive with interest
    [20:08:37] [Andrasta]: and hope that it is sincere
    [20:08:44] [King Blackthorn]: Of course.
    [20:08:54] [Andrasta]: i have one question regarding it
    [20:08:57] [King Blackthorn]: *nods*
    [20:09:08] [Andrasta]: Will the Banner Towns join your table?
    [20:09:19] [Tatiana Thorn]: *glances over to ribbit*
    [20:09:30] [Khaleesi]: *slides a carrot under her chair*
    [20:09:35] [King Blackthorn]: As a part of each and every meeting, as the governors here are, no.
    [20:09:37] [Ivory Skyfire]: *lifts an eyebrow*
    [20:09:42] [Akera]: ahh :)
    [20:09:43] [King Blackthorn]: However, should they wish to speak or be heard.
    [20:09:50] [King Blackthorn]: They will be afforded the opportunity.
    [20:09:53] [Andrasta]: I see
    [20:10:18] [Ivory Skyfire]: would that place us under the king's rule?
    [20:10:19] [Akera]: slides a drink under table for rabbit
    [20:10:31] [Andrasta]: So no equal representation for the Banner Towns
    [20:10:43] [aulbrey]: Oops.
    [20:10:49] [Shinigami]: but they are still expected to obey and support the king or be invaded
    [20:10:51] [aulbrey]: uhh
    [20:10:51] [King Blackthorn]: In the case of the Blue Crane, you would still be represented by the Kingdom of Tokuno.
    [20:10:58] [aulbrey]: i know i didnt do it that time either
    [20:11:01] [aulbrey]: *nods*

    [20:11:39] [King Blackthorn]: *laughs*
    [20:11:42] [King Blackthorn]: Conquest is not on our mind.
    [20:11:53] [Tatiana Thorn]: *nods in agreement*
    [20:11:54] [Khaleesi]: *smirks a bit*
    [20:12:12] [Jonathan]: yet you send troops into malas?
    [20:12:13] [Andrasta]: I wish the Lands of Britannia well my King
    [20:12:49] [King Blackthorn]: The crown wishes you the best Lady Andrasta.
    [20:12:58] [King Blackthorn]: Lady Arya of Jhelom.
    [20:12:59] [Andrasta]: I would like to see a vote this evening on Falling Waters
    [20:13:04] [King Blackthorn]: The Floor is yours.
    [20:13:11] [King Blackthorn]: *nods to Andrasta*
    [20:13:19] [Queen Arya]: Aye Sire

    [20:14:26] [Ivory Skyfire]: *nods in agreement*
    [20:14:32] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Tazar, fled to Malas and walled up his fortress the day of the attack.
    [20:14:50] [King Blackthorn]: He affords no contact to the agents of Britannia.
    [20:15:05] [Queen Arya]: well the way I see it
    [20:15:09] [Jonathan]: tazar is at the end of the maze
    [20:15:11] [Jonathan]: go find him
    [20:15:25] [Queen Arya]: it could have very well been any one being hit by those arrows
    [20:15:31] [Queen Arya]: I am still in shock
    [20:15:40] [King Blackthorn]: He has taken the cowards course and resorted to assassination and rebellion...
    [20:15:40] [Queen Arya]: I have known Lord Tazar along time
    [20:15:47] [King Blackthorn]: Because he lost a political argument.
    [20:16:02] [King Blackthorn]: *shakes his head*
    [20:16:08] [aulbrey]: *rubs belly*
    [20:16:18] [Queen Arya]: hmm

    [20:18:18] [Queen Arya]: I wanted to report
    [20:18:33] [Queen Arya]: our community day medievil faire was terrific

    [20:20:22] [Daphnie]: *feels the wind*
    [20:20:25] [Queen Arya]: I have seen several odd guards
    [20:20:30] [King Blackthorn]: I think we shall make clarifications as time goes on.
    [20:20:31] [Queen Arya]: at this meeting tonight
    [20:20:36] [Cauchemar]: smells the "wind" geze
    [20:20:42] [Queen Arya]: and wanted to ask if they are recognized by the crown?
    [20:20:52] [King Blackthorn]: It seems everyone has a side or a piece to add on this Tazar business.
    [20:21:03] [Jonathan]: Bring it to a vote!
    [20:21:15] [King Blackthorn]: As for the guards, people take the guise of many things.
    [20:21:20] [King Blackthorn]: I know not.
    [20:21:31] [King Blackthorn]: Lets put this Occupation of Falling Waters to a Vote.
    [20:21:46] [King Blackthorn]: First, allow me to make a statement.
    [20:22:01] [King Blackthorn]: I consider the matter of Solus and Trinsic to be closed.
    [20:22:17] [King Blackthorn]: Solus was banished and put to trial by his peers here in this very chamber.
    [20:22:31] [King Blackthorn]: He was censures and issued harsh punishment in regards to his crimes.
    [20:22:36] [Lew]: *scratches head*
    [20:22:41] [Pink Panther]: Solus was not tried by his peers...
    [20:22:43] [King Blackthorn]: While some may contend it was not harsh enough.
    [20:22:48] [King Blackthorn]: It is a matter of opinion.
    [20:22:51] [Pink Panther]: and there are more recent murders in Britain.
    [20:22:56] [Pink Panther]: to be answered for.
    [20:23:02] [King Blackthorn]: I trust my judgment and stad by it in the matter.
    [20:23:07] [King Blackthorn]: In the case of Lord Lew...
    [20:23:22] [King Blackthorn]: My affection for my friend could not afford me to trust my own judgment.
    [20:23:34] [King Blackthorn]: So he was put to trial in Yew and found innocent.
    [20:23:37] [Lew]: *looks back at Galathan*
    [20:23:42] [King Blackthorn]: I am satisfied in both matters.
    [20:23:45] [Lew]: *whispers thank you*
    [20:23:50] [Galathan]: *nods*
    [20:23:50] [King Blackthorn]: However.
    [20:23:50] [aulbrey]: It's hot in here...
    [20:24:01] [aulbrey]: damn wind elementals
    [20:24:12] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Tazar isn't and instead of moving politically or diplimatically...
    [20:24:29] [King Blackthorn]: He resigned his governorship, made an assassination attempt on the crown...
    [20:24:35] [King Blackthorn]: And murdered a Governor in the process.
    [20:24:43] [King Blackthorn]: He did not stand at the gates afterwords...
    [20:24:47] [Pink Panther]: If only he had succeeded... *sighs*
    [20:24:54] [Tatiana Thorn]: *shudders*
    [20:24:57] [King Blackthorn]: Waving a flag of justice and champion freedom and liberty...
    [20:25:09] [King Blackthorn]: Instead he fled like a scared dog to his castle
    [20:25:15] [King Blackthorn]: Walled it up, and waited for a response.
    [20:25:22] [King Blackthorn]: Well he got one!
    [20:25:40] [Pink Panther]: The fortress was walled up long before that... it is a fortress afterall.
    [20:25:51] [King Blackthorn]: This council represents an Order to the Chaos and diversity of our lands.
    [20:25:59] [King Blackthorn]: We must protect it from all enemies.
    [20:26:11] [King Blackthorn]: We have two proposals this evening.
    [20:26:12] [Tatiana Thorn]: *nods in agreement*
    [20:26:21] [King Blackthorn]: The proposal of the Crown is as follows.
    [20:26:29] [aulbrey]: ...I'm not wasted...
    [20:26:42] [King Blackthorn]: That the Kingsguard of Britannia remain in siege at Falling Waters in Malas...
    [20:27:02] [King Blackthorn]: Until such time that Lord Tazar seeks to make amends for his actions.
    [20:27:08] [A Ribbit]: *run back to titi*
    [20:27:13] [King Blackthorn]: And submits to Justice.
    [20:28:33] [King Blackthorn]: The second proposal...
    [20:28:39] [aulbrey]: *looks up*
    [20:28:44] [King Blackthorn]: Is that of our Noble Lord Lew.
    [20:28:46] [aulbrey]: *rubs eyes*
    [20:28:59] [King Blackthorn]: In that an Arrest Warrant for Lord Tazar be issued...
    [20:29:12] [Tatiana Thorn]: *scratches ribbit on the ears*
    [20:29:14] [King Blackthorn]: And the Kingsguard be recalled to assist in Britain.
    [20:29:29] [Balamaethor]: That seems silly. I'm sure the first proposal will work fine. Why wouldn't he turn himself in? Evil men do that all the time.
    [20:29:31] [Cauchemar]: tries to catch rabbit by ears
    [20:29:37] [Khaleesi]: *sneaks a hand through the chair to pat Ribbit*
    [20:29:43] [King Blackthorn]: I would add, that in addition to Lord Lew's proposal...
    [20:30:09] [King Blackthorn]: All Britanian lands, funds and titles belonging to Lord Tazar...
    [20:30:24] [King Blackthorn]: Would be siezed by the Crown.
    [20:30:37] [Tatiana Thorn]: *chews her lip*
    [20:30:38] [King Blackthorn]: So we shall go through the line.
    [20:30:47] [aulbrey]: wait your taking his booze *looks shocked*
    [20:30:56] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Corintian, if you can pull yourself away from your drink.
    [20:31:05] [Queen Arya]: heh
    [20:31:08] [King Blackthorn]: And choose either the Crown, or Trinsic in this matter.
    [20:31:11] [Corinthian]: Sire?

    [20:31:44] [King Blackthorn]: *nods*

    [20:31:58] [aulbrey]: *hic*
    [20:32:07] [Khaleesi]: I stand by Vesper's vote of neutrality. Lew's proposal supports that..
    [20:32:09] [Lew]: My liege
    [20:32:24] [King Blackthorn]: YEs?
    [20:32:26] [Tatiana Thorn]: *chews her lip thinking*
    [20:32:27] [King Blackthorn]: *coughs*
    [20:32:29] [Jonathan]: burn the falling waters to the ground!
    [20:32:33] [Lew]: Trinsic does not stand against the Crown
    [20:32:33] [King Blackthorn]: Yes, Governor?
    [20:32:45] [King Blackthorn]: no no... just for the proposals.
    [20:32:50] [Khaleesi]: I stand for Trinsic Sire..
    [20:33:02] [King Blackthorn]: *nods to Khaleesi*
    [20:33:02] [Lew]: ok, just wanted clarification, before I am arrested yet again

    (Due to the fact she was dressed like a kings guard)

    That is not music. That is manufactured celebrities stroking their narcissism.

    This is music.

    Since everyone is in the mood for debate this evening and for the sake of argument.

    Maybe I'm interpreting this log wrong, and I fully admit I wasn't there, but I have some serious issues with what I've read. We have an EM who is willing to put the time and effort into incorporating player-created events into the shard-wide fiction, including writing stories and creating in-game representations of the conflict (the Kingsguard) -- only to have a last minute retcon that rendered it all a complete waste of time.

    So Blackhthorn looks like a jerk, Yosef gets off without any consequences for almost starting a war, and the murder doesn't even matter because it was only a "double." Actually, maybe it should be made clear that it wasn't a human double, but a robot or a humanoid golem constructed by the Tinkers of Minoc so it's clear that there was no actual loss of life :)

    Anyway, I don't know if you were actually upset by any of this Bennu, but I seriously apologize and hope this doesn't discourage you at all. You did a really great job with all of this.

    In what way was it a complete waste of time? Because you didn't know the out come before it happened?
    Did anyone even look for the body of Yosef? Was an identification of the body done?
    This story has actually brought people who would not normally role play into role play.

    I actually liked the whole story-line created by Yosef's assassination. I liked all of the consequences of that inciting event, including the occupation of Tazar's lands and the political discussions.

    No, it has nothing to do with not knowing the outcome ahead of time. There was no outcome to be known because it was a great example of a story-line being moved forward by characters and interaction.

    I agree that the story-line brought in people who might not normally role-play. However, that was completely independent of the ending, so I don't find that to be a relevant argument.

    The ending ruined all of the above. It completely voided an interesting story-line by putting everything back into the box, all neat and clean and simple with no consequences. That's bad story-telling. It's logic made characters look stupid for no apparent reason. That's also bad story-telling.

    As for your investigation-related questions, you were the person responsible for that aspect of the story. Did you make those items available for people to investigate? Any clues at all something wasn't kosher? Or was this just a last minute retcon as it appeared to be? I'll leave it for the in-game interaction to work out the logic of Yosef the character's motivations for doing so and won't question them here.

    Yosef was spotted "alive" and had a number of interactions with players throughout the lost lands and Malas (even once near the Falling Waters, in the past few days). Yet no-one came forth with the information.

    Let's just write it up as a fun time was had by all and move on... :)

    I think we can all learn from the interaction here, both the good and the bad points.

    We are ALL still learning with the governor system, AND with this interaction we got to throw in the invasion and participation of a player run town into the mix.

    I think there was a worry that the RP had kinda painted both sides into a corner and there was no real way out for either side.

    I do think it ironic that we ended it AFTER we whittled a resolution out of the whole thing with the vote, which knitted things up nicely.

    Either way, I think we can just move on now.

    Well, if it was really your intention from the beginning to have him be alive all along, then I apologize for calling it a retcon. However, I stand by the rest of my points and feel that it was a terrible ending to a really good story-line and hope that it doesn't discourage any future EM interaction in player-generated content.
