    Welcome back your Royal Highness
    Lanfear: king
    Ma Nerva: hehe
    Lew: *paces*
    Lanfear: we were told you were inside
    King Blackthorn: *puts a single sheet of paper on the table*
    Raina Cold Eyes: who said that
    Summer: hello
    Echo: good evening my liege
    Summer: Gov lew
    King Blackthorn: I do not walk with dishonored knights.
    Lew: Hail summer
    King Blackthorn: So I walked myself in.
    Raina Cold Eyes: what
    Raina Cold Eyes: explain please sir
    Ajiba: Oh... snap?
    King Blackthorn: I have much to say.
    Lew: *listening*
    Summer: well i dont wish to sit next to Dishonored Governors
    King Blackthorn: I ask everyone to wait to say their piece until I am finished.
    Summer: Yes King
    Echo: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: First off, I am of the conclusion that tonights meeting will focus on the election in
    King Blackthorn: New Magincia.
    Lew: *nods head&
    King Blackthorn: So let me be clear of my position on the matter.
    Summer: *nods*
    King Blackthorn: The Crown is of the opinion that the Election in New Magincia was stolen.
    Lanfear: true that
    Lew: *nods head in agreement*
    King Blackthorn: Forces either stole the election FOR the elected governor...
    King Blackthorn: Or forces stole the election FROM the incumbant.
    King Blackthorn: Either way, the crown is of the opinion that the election was stolen and that...
    King Blackthorn: The process was circumvented, dishonorably.
    King Blackthorn: HOWEVER.
    King Blackthorn: I have no proof, nor have I heard anything other than hearsay and conjecture.
    Ajiba: Can we have some concept explained of how this was supposedly acheived?
    King Blackthorn: That Ma Nerva was involved.
    Beordred: Who Speaks out of turn?
    Ajiba: meep
    King Blackthorn: Just because it was stolen, it is impossible to know if it was stolen for or from.
    King Blackthorn: Ma Nerva has run in every election since we begun this experiment.
    Red Beard: Dium Prostra
    Ma Nerva: aye
    King Blackthorn: And, dispite the... issues.
    King Blackthorn: I am willing to let her try.
    King Blackthorn: Note, a guarded, try.
    Summer: *shakes head*
    King Blackthorn: Ma Nerva, I am worried that this is the first time you have entered this chamber.
    King Blackthorn: And dispite your eagerness to sit in these seats...
    Lew: *drops head*
    King Blackthorn: You have never attened a meeting previously.
    Ma Nerva: alone only
    King Blackthorn: And thought the meeting was in the throne room.
    King Blackthorn: In spite of all of this, I am willing to let you continue as Governor.
    Ma Nerva: i wished to see u in ur throne
    King Blackthorn: I will say, you have a lot of work to do, to gain my trust.
    Summer: *pfffff*
    Ma Nerva: thank you my leige
    King Blackthorn: and the trust of the other governors...
    Ma Nerva: i wish the respect of magincia only tho ill try
    King Blackthorn: Tonight I will let you speak first, so that you may address this council while they are at attention
    King Blackthorn: Measure your words carefully, I fear the room is against you.
    King Blackthorn: The floor is yours Governor of Magincia.
    Ma Nerva: thank you
    Ma Nerva: to those whom know me not my name is ma nerva
    Ma Nerva: as the king mentioned i have ran every taime in new magincia
    Ma Nerva: i am glad to be here dispite rumours
    Lew: *scratches head*
    Ma Nerva: i bow to the wisdom of the king and wish to lead new mag to a new age
    Summer: *turns back*
    Ma Nerva: thank you
    Lew: Sire, may I speak
    Summer: *turns back towards the king*
    King Blackthorn: Old friend Lew.
    King Blackthorn: Before you respond and we get into the thick of this.
    Lew: As you recall, the first elections were not without trouble
    Lew: aye
    King Blackthorn: Could we allow the dwarf to speak, he made a request, and I fear once we get rolling...
    Lew: I will wait
    Ma Nerva: i disagree first was flawed
    King Blackthorn: We may not be able to stop.
    Lew: Beldin sir
    Summer: hail Dwarf Brightaxe
    King Blackthorn: Master Dwarf, the floor is yours.
    Beldin Brightaxe: Hail folks ae Brittania
    Echo: Hail master dwarf
    Beldin Brightaxe: It is fortunate tha' Ah donnae see thae despicable governor ae Britain at his seat
    Beldin Brightaxe: Boot since thae folks ae this land seem intent on keepin' an orcling as Governor
    Quacklebush: arr i'll be seated now
    Beldin Brightaxe: Thae dwarf folk huv decided through long debate
    Beldin Brightaxe: an' mooch drinkin'

    Beldin Brightaxe: ter thae elflings home in thae south
    Beldin Brightaxe: all areas are clearly marked as dwarf lands
    Beldin Brightaxe: under thae rule ae Kraggen Cor
    King Blackthorn: To be honest Governor, racism and bigotry have no place in this Kingdom.
    Beldin Brightaxe: *stomps boot*
    Lew: *looks at the dwarf*
    Beldin Brightaxe: Racism an' Bigotry are nae one sided in this manner
    Beldin Brightaxe: Oor folk huv repeatedly been provoked while in Britain
    Summer: *whispers to the kingsguard hes not a governor anymore*
    King Blackthorn: Do what you will Beldin, you are allowing centuries of bloodfude to cloud your mind.
    the town drunk: short people got no reason, short people got no reason
    Beldin Brightaxe: We will nae longer set foot in this town any mair
    King Blackthorn: Why not show the Kingdom how wise and honorable the Dwarves are...
    King Blackthorn: Rather than turn your back and run away from an orc.
    Beldin Brightaxe: Aye, tha' Ah am
    Lew: *whispers to Gal*
    Lew: did you bring the asprin?
    Beldin Brightaxe: Ah cannae stand ter allow me folks ter be repeatedly dis-honored
    King Blackthorn: Would you rather have Solus back in Britain?
    King Blackthorn: I think he would gladly sit again...
    Lew: *chuckles*
    Summer: *grumbles yes*
    King Blackthorn: *is obviously joking and trying to lighten the mood*
    Beldin Brightaxe: Tha' is nae choice
    King Blackthorn: The people of Britain are often subject to whim and fancy.
    King Blackthorn: It is their way.
    Beldin Brightaxe: boot this is oor decision
    Galathan: *growls*
    King Blackthorn: Do what you will master dwarf, just see that you take no seditious acts against Britannia...
    King Blackthorn: And you whall be left alone.
    Beldin Brightaxe: Thank ye
    Beldin Brightaxe: Only tae keep oor honor Lord Blackthorn
    King Blackthorn: I dissagree with your motives and your logic.
    King Blackthorn: However I can only hope that given time and peace, you will see the error you have made.
    King Blackthorn: This chamber is always open to you Governor.
    King Blackthorn: Governor Lew.
    SunWolf: safe travels, Beldin
    King Blackthorn: Thank you for waiting old friend.
    King Blackthorn: The floor of this chamber is yours.
    Lew: *clears throat*
    King Blackthorn: *takes a sip of something that is obviously not water*
    Lew: where was I?
    Lew: oh yes
    Red Beard: Talking about tossing Dwarfs off the roof top
    Lew: as you remmber, our first election to council was not without its problems
    Lew: The mystical powers that created the stones were just being used
    Lew: that election the stone in New Mag happend to break, and no votes were cast
    Lew: at the time, Lady Andrasta was running against Ma Nerva
    Ma Nerva: true
    Nurse Betty: *slips quietly in*
    Lew: Lady Andrasta, being who she is took the high road and asked you personally to hold another election
    Lew: she did not claim the seat for herself
    Lew: at that time, Ma Nerva wrote and placed many books
    Lew: attacking the character and honor of Lady Andrasta
    B o b o: ohh
    Lew: yet she did not return the angry words
    Ma Nerva: b4 the end of election and gm made me destroy books

    King Blackthorn: *nods to Summer*
    B o b o: ohh so it true
    Lew: as you know
    Lew: I live by a very old code of Honor
    Lew: Sire, I cannot sit on this council with her in that seat, in this fashion
    Summer: *nods head*
    King Blackthorn: I am reminded of another election, myself.
    Lew: she has offered nothing but contempt from the start
    King Blackthorn: Governors Sunwolf and Norrington.
    Lew: speaking rather of her island than this council
    SunWolf: *thinks so far only Quacklebush is siting at the council*
    Ug Rankbreath: *smiles at dwarves*
    King Blackthorn: The two seemed bitter enemies.
    Lew: aye
    King Blackthorn: And the city of Yew found itself to be nearly torn apart.
    King Blackthorn: Until the two men made their peace.
    Quacklebush: i do fancy these comby chairs
    King Blackthorn: And Yew was the better for it.
    Lew: but sire in that electoin, the names were on the stone
    Lew: I can be witness that Gov Nails name was on that stone
    Lew: and wsa in the front of the votes
    King Blackthorn: I know, I have already stated I believe that the stone was tampered with and the election stolen.
    Lew: up until black magic was cast
    King Blackthorn: However, I have no proof that Ma Nerva was involved, other than conjecture.
    Lew: *shakes head*
    King Blackthorn: I cannot and will not act on rumors and circumstantial evidence.
    Lew: I am not saying that she was responsible
    Summer: *bangs hand on table knocking over the kings candle*
    Red Beard: If they think it was rigged do it again let the people decide who they want
    King Blackthorn: What I would like to see is Governor Warstein and Ma Nerva work together for the good of
    King Blackthorn: New Magincia.
    the town drunk: *applauds*
    King Blackthorn: This isnt about who sits in a chair, its who does the job, who can represent their people.
    Lew: no
    King Blackthorn: Who has the love for their city to represent them within this hall.
    Ug Rankbreath: MaNure no repsen Ug
    Lew: its about tamping with the stones, its not about a chair
    King Blackthorn: Politics aside, that is what this council comes down to.
