    A last-minute entry by Salinger the Cereal Killer as a candidate for Jhelom was the chief event of the final day of town governor nominations. Although no press release was forthcoming and Salinger has not otherwise outlined his plans, the people seemed overjoyed that they would finally be getting some representation at the highest level of government.

    “I think we'd have been happy even if Minax or Mondain had applied,” said a delighted bank worker.

    Although the total candidates for this term is one short of the fourteen back in June, and the electorate only has a voting choice in four cities compared to six previously, we are at least assured of a full table at the King's Council.

    The contested cities are Britain, where governor Sprago will this time square up against Hugibear the pirate; Minoc, where Possum will be up against Ladra of Barter Town; Moonglow, where incumbent Sam's challenger this go around is York; and New Magincia, a replay of June's contest where Morgan Ironfist overcame an early deficit to defeat Viscount Goop by thirty-three votes to eleven.

    In the other cities, Jhelom and Trinsic have only single candidates, but that is one more than they had previously; Vesper sees Victim, defeated candidate last time, go unopposed; Yew has Samantha, following her 43-3 crushing of President back in June, as the only candidate; and Skara Brae sees Hoffs go unchallenged again.

    With nominations officially closed, all citizens of any status can now start voting at the town stones. All candidates have been asked to provide a summary of their plans for the city this term, such as which trade deals they intend to run, so any citizens of towns with a choice of candidate may wish to wait for this information to be published before exercising their democratic right.

    The final candidate list, as well as any guild affiliations, is shown below:

    Hugibear (Prepare to be Boarded)
    Sprago (Eye for n Eye)

    Salinger (Cereal Killers)

    Ladra (Barter Town Inc)
    Possum (Victim's R Us)

    Sam (Eye for n Eye)

    New Magincia
    Morgan Ironfist (Gilfane)
    Viscount Goop (Eye for n Eye)

    Skara Brae
    Hoffs (Gilfane)


    Victim (Victim's R Us)

    Samantha (Gilfane)

    This reporter is eager to make contact with both Salinger and York. Please send me a pigeon if you can help.

    To whom it may concern,

    After a long thoughtful deliberation, I have casted my vote for the Governor of Jhelom.

    Although I have not meet nor have seen the candidate Salinger, anyone willing to take the reins and represent Jhelom at the council meetings can have my vote. I have no stomach for the inherit corruption stemming from the political system.

    Who knows… Maybe this Salinger can make some improvements in the city that I grew up in. I did notice that my vote did turn the tides in the election process. After submitting my vote, the tally shot up from zero to one hundred percent.

    I still have fond memories of adventures on the main island training in the Dueling Pits and practicing my skills on the undead in the Cemetery. The northern island which for the most part is still unguarded was always a source of excitement and mischief.

    As for the small island, that seems to be an area ripe for potential improvement. I always avoided going into the Performing Arts Centre on the small island. It seems so out of place for Jhelom’s reputation as a Fighter’s town. As a young child in Jhelom, I was warned that the male actors could be a tad too friendly and that I should not go there by myself. I heeded these warnings and out of habit, I have never ventured into the building.

    Hopefully this Salinger will look into this matter.
