    [15:34:16] [King Blackthorn]: I believe it is time for us to begin
    [15:34:54] [King Blackthorn]: Is anyone here to represent Britain?
    [15:35:30] [King Blackthorn]: On to business then.
    [15:35:51] [King Blackthorn]: First off, I would like to welcome Lord Eli Cross to the Council.
    [15:35:58] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Cross will be representing Vesper.
    [15:36:03] [Sam]: hail!
    [15:36:40] [Sam]: hi willie
    [15:36:42] [Sam]: d
    [15:36:46] [King Blackthorn]: Secondly, it has been proposed that there be an adjustment to Governor's terms.
    [15:36:48] [Wee Willie Winki]: hi
    [15:37:11] [King Blackthorn]: As it is, the terms are a little short to plan much activity.
    [15:37:50] [King Blackthorn]: With the next term, I believe we will have 6 month terms, if things stay on schedule.
    [15:37:59] [Sam]: ahh
    [15:38:08] [The Gooch]: Exellent news, Sire
    [15:38:18] [King Blackthorn]: This will allow time between election cycles to accomplish more.
    [15:38:25] [The Gooch]: you got this old timer
    [15:38:35] [King Blackthorn]: I would hope not Lord Ironfist.
    [15:39:03] [King Blackthorn]: There is more general business to discuss, but I will hold that for the end of the meeting.
    [15:39:23] [King Blackthorn]: Governor Cross. Would you like to begin?
    [15:39:29] [Kattasrophe]: :)
    [15:39:55] [Eli Cross]: Ahh Of course
    [15:40:03] [King Blackthorn]: Please approach the podium here
    [15:40:19] [Arradin]: i trust it this seat wasnt taken?
    [15:40:29] [Aelfric]: 88nope
    [15:40:33] [Hoffs]: Shall I go first so you have time to prepare?
    [15:40:55] [Eli Cross]: Well,truthfuly I have little to report,yet
    [15:41:12] [King Blackthorn]: If there is no news, that is an acceptable report.
    [15:41:20] [King Blackthorn]: No News is generally Good News. *smiles*
    [15:41:36] [King Blackthorn]: Lady Hoffs? Would you please proceed?
    [15:41:57] [Hoffs]: The following report is from governor York:
    [15:42:12] [Hoffs]: My apoligies for not attending the meeting today
    [15:42:25] [Hoffs]: however I have other matters to attend to.
    [15:42:40] [Hoffs]: Skara Brae, and the citizens of this fair land,
    [15:43:13] [Hoffs]: have been successful in clearing out the vermin vorpal bunnies infestation in the fields.
    [15:43:26] [Hoffs]: This will help ensure a bountiful harvest.
    [15:43:50] [Hoffs]: In other financial matters, the trade deal with the Bardic Collegium has been renewed
    [15:43:56] [Hoffs]: without much delay.
    [15:44:14] [Hoffs]: The current balance in the treasury will ensure at leats one more renewal.
    [15:44:41] [Hoffs]: The Skara Subsidy program seems to have some interest and if more vendors can be set up
    [15:45:15] [Hoffs]: under it it, it will prove to keep basic need items in stock and readily available.
    [15:45:34] [Hoffs]: This should help the kingdon grow id the most basic need is easily fulfilled.
    [15:45:49] [Hoffs]: All other matters appear to be in order.
    [15:45:57] [Hoffs]: Signed York, governor of Skara Brae
    [15:46:10] [Hoffs]: And if I may just add something of my own:
    [15:46:18] [Hoffs]: As most people are probably aware,
    [15:46:24] [Hoffs]: a public auction will be taking place on May 10th
    [15:46:24] [The Gooch]: ^^
    [15:46:29] [Hoffs]: to help raise funds for the town treasuries.
    [15:46:34] [Hoffs]: A commission of 5% will be charged on lots sold,
    [15:46:40] [Hoffs]: and this will be distributed amongst the participating towns.
    [15:46:47] [Hoffs]: It is also possible for people to donate items to be sold entirely for the benefit of the towns,
    [15:46:56] [Hoffs]: and there has actually been an amazing community response for this so far,
    [15:47:03] [Hoffs]: with some very generous donations.
    [15:47:08] [Hoffs]: Full details of the auction event will be announced nearer the date,
    [15:47:14] [Hoffs]: along with the final list of items for sale,
    [15:47:19] [Hoffs]: and there will be an opportunity for people to make advance bids
    [15:47:24] [The Gooch]: We hpe to see you there, Kingy
    [15:47:26] [Hoffs]: if they are unable to attend the event.
    [15:47:32] [Hoffs]: But in the meantime, if anyone has any items they wish to sell,
    [15:47:37] [King Blackthorn]: I look forward to hearing more of this. I encourage the cooperation.
    [15:47:41] [Hoffs]: please see the local newspapers and send me a pigeon.
    [15:48:12] [King Blackthorn]: Lady Kattasrophe of Moonglow. Would you like to speak?
    [15:48:21] [Kattasrophe]: Yes M'lord
    [15:48:48] [Kattasrophe]: As Hoffs just said a few moments ago about the auctions,
    [15:48:55] [Kattasrophe]: I do encourage everyone to attend
    [15:49:13] [Kattasrophe]: The more that is there the better chances for our city treasuarys
    [15:49:32] [Kattasrophe]: As for Reports on Moonglow,
    [15:49:50] [Kattasrophe]: At our last governors meeting I mentioned of a carnival event
    [15:50:07] [Kattasrophe]: It was sucessful and many enjoyed the fun.
    [15:50:34] [Kattasrophe]: Me and several citizens have been working on the Mongbat infestation
    [15:50:54] [Kattasrophe]: and now the rate being born is at about 60% down now
    [15:51:10] [Kattasrophe]: So Thank you to the people who have been helping with that.
    [15:51:41] [Kattasrophe]: Today I will be switching the trade deal to the Assians Guild
    [15:51:58] [Kattasrophe]: so for the people with weapons will get their turn.
    [15:52:18] [Kattasrophe]: I have seen some donations to the zoo and I would like to thank the people
    [15:52:24] [Kattasrophe]: who have been donating animalsthere.
    [15:52:46] [Kelmo]: live animals?
    [15:52:49] [Kattasrophe]: I do encourage that people continue to do it to restore our Moonglow zoo
    [15:52:58] [Kattasrophe]: Yes, Live animals *smiles*
    [15:53:26] [Kattasrophe]: Also,
    [15:53:36] [Kattasrophe]: I will be running for Governor again
    [15:53:56] [Kattasrophe]: and I want to hear from everyone about ideas that could help any of the cities
    [15:54:04] [Kelmo]: I will buy ya several votes
    [15:54:17] [Kattasrophe]: *laughs* Thank you Kelmo :)
    [15:54:29] [Kattasrophe]: I also encourage
    [15:54:37] [Kattasrophe]: people to help others
    [15:54:45] [Kattasrophe]: If someone helps out another
    [15:54:49] [Kattasrophe]: and that person helps someone
    [15:54:57] [Kattasrophe]: we can create a chain reaction
    [15:55:01] [Kattasrophe]: of helpfulness
    [15:55:12] [Kattasrophe]: That is all.
    [15:55:37] [Hoffs]: Well said, Lady Kattasrophe.
    [15:55:49] [Kattasrophe]: *smiles* Thank you
    [15:55:53] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you Lady Kattasrophe.

    [16:06:21] [King Blackthorn]: *Whispers to Kattasrophe* Can you interpret that into the King's Language for me?
    [16:06:25] [The Gooch]: They ask for more caves to mine in order to reach the gems and ore they crave so much.
    [16:06:31] [Wee Willie Winki]: Mount Winki
    [16:06:43] [Kattasrophe]: perhaps uh after the meeting?

    [16:08:02] [King Blackthorn]: If the miners need more space, I would suggest the mountains south of the City would be available to them.
    [16:08:21] [Talia]: dark wisps
    [16:08:22] [Troop]: is it safe to mine there?
    [16:08:28] [The Gooch]: I will pass that along king but im sure they would prefer less travel
    [16:08:29] [Kelmo]: and pirates

    [16:16:49] [Kelmo]: I second that
    [16:16:52] [Kattasrophe]: Yes,

    [16:18:05] [King Blackthorn]: And Lady Hoffs?
    [16:18:15] [Hoffs]: Acting this time in my capacity as head of Gilfane city-state,
    [16:18:22] [Hoffs]: I would just like to give special thanks to the king
    [16:18:27] [Hoffs]: for his official recognition of our community.
    [16:18:34] [Hoffs]: We have waited a long time for this moment,
    [16:18:40] [Hoffs]: and it means a great deal to us.
    [16:18:45] [Hoffs]: I hope that it encourages other communites to step forth
    [16:18:52] [Hoffs]: and establish their own identities in the world.
    [16:18:56] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles* I am most glad to see this step forward and hope to see many more.
    [16:19:00] [Kelmo]: *nods* It means a great deal to a lot of us.
    [16:19:28] [Kelmo]: Too late for me...
    [16:19:39] [King Blackthorn]: And now, would any of the citizens like to speak?
    [16:19:46] [King Blackthorn]: If not, we have more business pending.
    [16:20:03] [King Blackthorn]: Lady Talia. Please approach.
    [16:20:25] [Talia]: I'd like to speak on behalf of the Mongbat Population of Moonglow
    [16:20:38] [Susie]: .
    [16:20:55] [Talia]: Much like our own society, there are Good and Evil Mongbats
    [16:21:01] [King Blackthorn]: *peers closely* You do not look like Czarina. But you sound like her.
    [16:21:10] [Sam]: heheheh
    [16:21:11] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
    [16:21:15] [Talia]: Some Mongbats are quite amenable to being tamed
    [16:21:26] [Kelmo]: grilled too
    [16:21:32] [Kattasrophe]: now Kelmo..
    [16:21:34] [Hoffs]: hehe
    [16:21:37] [Talia]: With a little encouragement, the tamers of the land could form
    [16:21:45] [Talia]: a Moonglow Mongbat Militia
    [16:22:05] [Talia]: and deploying their winged troops around the city
    [16:22:08] [Kelmo]: I thought that was TB?
    [16:22:29] [Talia]: they could cut down on the population of evil hostile mongbats
    [16:22:55] [Talia]: In fact, after being guided by the tamers for a short while
    [16:23:09] [Talia]: they would perform this service even when out of the tamer's control
    [16:23:30] [Talia]: That is all
    [16:23:48] [Sam]: hmmm
    [16:23:54] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you Lady Talia. I would suggest working with Governor Kattasrophe on this.
    [16:24:14] [Kattasrophe]: oops..
    [16:24:17] [King Blackthorn]: and perhaps Lord Kelmo's clothiers can make small uniforms for them. *grins*
    [16:24:23] [Hoffs]: hehe
    [16:24:24] [Sam]: lol
    [16:24:27] [The Gooch]: ^^
    [16:24:43] [King Blackthorn]: Are there others who would like to speak.
    [16:24:56] [Aelfric]: I
    [16:25:15] [King Blackthorn]: Aelfric. Please approach the podium.
    [16:25:15] [Aelfric]: I would just like to say
    [16:25:32] [Aelfric]: The recent acts of aggression
    [16:25:40] [Aelfric]: from the True Brittanians
    [16:25:45] [Aelfric]: against the council of mages
    [16:25:47] [Aelfric]: have been quelled
    [16:25:54] [Aelfric]: and the prices will be kept low
    [16:26:04] [Aelfric]: and the citizen will be able to acquire basic needs
    [16:26:10] [Aelfric]: thanks to the bravery of my comrades
    [16:26:11] [Aelfric]: thank you
    [16:26:15] [The Gooch]: ^^
    [16:26:21] [Talia]: TB Horse Breeder gots Warts!
    [16:26:54] [King Blackthorn]: I had not noticed such agression except for a defense of their own. Perhaps I should watch closer.
    [16:27:05] [Kelmo]: These statements are true...
    [16:27:34] [Kelmo]: The mages keep the prices low
    [16:27:40] [King Blackthorn]: Are there others?
    [16:28:06] [Kelmo]: at this moment the mages control all the cities
    [16:28:25] [Troop]: a monopoly
    [16:28:31] [King Blackthorn]: If not, then I must announce with regret the loss of Lord Pureheart, the Guardian of the Candle of Love.
    [16:28:57] [The Gooch]: A sad day indeed
    [16:29:01] [Kelmo]: I am sorry
    [16:29:02] [King Blackthorn]: It seems that the corruption of the Candle was too much for him and he passes away this week.
    [16:30:34] [King Blackthorn]: I understand that his daughter Hope Pureheart is working in his place
    [16:30:40] [The Gooch]: Aye
    [16:30:44] [King Blackthorn]: to determine how to cleanse the candle.
    [16:30:50] [King Blackthorn]: and that she requested aid.
    [16:30:56] [King Blackthorn]: Can anyone report on this event?
    [16:31:02] [The Gooch]: I can, King
    [16:31:26] [King Blackthorn]: Please proceed Lord Gooch
    [16:31:51] [The Gooch]: Myself and Lord Aelfric spent many hours working with Hope
    [16:31:54] [Kelmo]: Use short words if you must...
    [16:32:02] [The Gooch]: In order to discover 5 words of power
    [16:32:22] [The Gooch]: I am happy to report that we have discovered all five words of power
    [16:32:42] [King Blackthorn]: Please enlighten us.
    [16:33:05] [The Gooch]: Lord Pureheart named his children after the virtues
    [16:33:20] [The Gooch]: and then sent each one to learn of the virtue they were named for
    [16:34:00] [The Gooch]: Mercy Pureheart Discovered the power word of Compassion to be Vilis
