    Magtok nods thoughtfully, or at least in a manner that would imply thought. Whether or not he's actually thinking about anything relevant to the discussion at all is an absolute mystery. "Pay my respects to my predecessors, don't assume everyone will be buddies with me, and should things get ugly, drop everything and run like hell. Sounds like something out of the AMENite handbook, if we had one. Yes, I'm certain I can bear the responsibility."
    "Heroes aren't supposed to do bad things. That's what villains are for. So either the good supersedes the bad, or the bad makes it impossible to remember the good. We don't like it when such duality exists in one person. We don't want to know our heroes are human."

    I'm willing to give my blessing as well, as long as we have access to cost estimates and all other information regarding the construction, staff and such. Dipsnig taps his fang.

    "Well, with the people here in support of this idea, I guess that I might as well throw my support behind it as well."

    Gordon pulls out a small piece of paper from his pocket.

    "Now, with that issue out of the way, we can move on to the next one."

    "I still think the council should keep at this project to ensure everything goes according to plans." Cessie adds and then glances at Gordon, "Yes what do you have in mind? I also have a issue I like to take up with the council."

    Gordon unfolds the paper, and places it on the table. On it is a sphere that kinda looks like a wailing head.

    ((Should we recognize it? I don't recall a wailing head apocalypse, but my brain is not reliable. ))

    @V: Okay. I'll leave this as is, since Delisle wouldn't have been involved.

    "Well, not to distract everyone with my lacking knowledge about the nexus but I learned from my fiancee about this city called 'Riverside' not far away from Inside. I did some research and apparently it's divided into three zones, two controlled by cults and one by 'vampires'. From what I read, it doesn't seem to be a very safe place. What I like to know is everyone's relation to this place is, it seems to be the only major city here beside Inside after all." Cessie explains.

    "The old Empire once blockaded Riverside, but since the Vanishing, Remnant has reopened relations with the vampiric portion of the city on rather specific terms. They won't be allowed to hunt here in Inisde, but they'll be allowed to travel freely. Except for those who've committed crimes, in which case, they're fair game to us. Beyond that, we haven't had much contact with the city." Vasquez tells Cessie.

    A Tobias plotclone undeadtimes, writes a quick letter, seals it with wax, puts it in Vasquez's mailbox/hands it off to someone who can relay it to her, and deadtimes again.

    Dear Vasquez,

    I just had a question regarding HALO's authority in the city. Are we allowed to conduct combat operations against bad guys without having to fill out a bunch of boring paperwork and clear things with Remnant weeks ahead of time? It would be easier to just debrief you after missions, but if you prefer to be the only ones killing people in your city, that's great too. If that happens to be the case, then I must ask that you allow me to loan Remnant experienced members of HALO for any sort of special operations you need handled with or without plausible deniability. Some of my more soldiery types are getting desperate for some action.

    Respectfully yours,
    Tobias Vulpan, HALO Commander.
    "There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river;
    while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away.
    No one has stepped twice into the same river.
    But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"

    After a discussion with Vasquez, Delisle types up a letter and wedges it in Tobias's deadtime ooze.

    Dear Tobias,

    Remnant is willing to allow HALO to act within the city without prior approval under the following conditions:
    1. Your members understand that they are expected to act within the confines of the law. This means no extrajudicial executions. Deaths that occur during combat operations or in self-defense, when capture is not feasible, will usually be looked at leniently.
    2. Individuals who cause death or injury to bystanders, or significant property damage, may be held criminally or civilly liable, depending on circumstances.
    3. You or your designated lieutenant should report in after any designated vigilante activities. (ooc, a note arriving at Remnant with a brief description or link to the relevant posts will suffice - no need to roleplay it out)
    4. Captured criminals should be turned over to Remnant for trial.


    If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

    Kind regards,
    1st Lt Delisle


    ((OOC, does this sound okay? I'm trying to (with Wolfy's approval) strike a balance between giving players more autonomy and maintaining the IC environment of a city with laws and structure))
    In times like these, it's helpful to remember that there have always been times like these.

    The mage clears her throat as she raises from her seat within the council.

    "I believe I have some important news to share, an individual known as "Calublufiok", shortened as "Cal" appeared in Watchtower some time ago. As I understand it, he's an especially stubborn madman hellbent on world spread destruction." She pauses a moment to see the others reactions.

    "He appeared as some type of red mist after we defeated a machine being whom he apparently had possessed. He just verbally abused a number of our members and then left. Some of us tried to pursue but eventually lost him. I think you know a bit more about him however, all I know about him were from what miss KR told me."

    Magtok sighs, presses his forehead down against the table, and closes his eyes tight as he makes a face and tries to refrain from belting out a flurry of obscenities and language foul enough to make even a space-sailor blush and/or take notes.

    ...Huh. I guess he's met this Calublufiok guy before.

    That red mist messing with his members was a world-destroying lich?

    "You should probably mobilize your army to deal with it," Delisle says to Gordon, referring to Prometheus and his drones and abominations. "The shields should keep him from attacking the city directly."

    ((FYI: As a player, I won't be participating directly in any Cal plots, but I'm fine with having my characters pass along information.))

    Magtok reaches into a pocket, his head still plastered against the table as he does so. A scrap of paper comes out, upon which he quickly sets about writing a set of tips and advice on dealing with Calublufiok.

    Quote Originally Posted by Maggy's Note

    -His phylactery should be gone, investigate as to whether or not liches can make new ones. Destroy anything and everything he claims as his own, just on the off-chance it's a phylactery.
    -Contact Ghost-Irene of GLoG, find out if the two are still one
    -Keep any and all Reinholdts away at all costs
    -Show no mercy, Cal is guilty of every sort of crime imaginable
    -Do everything to keep him from getting his hands on fancy artifacts of power, he loves those
    -Expect puzzles, riddles, mind games, and tricks
    -Find a skeletal admiral lich guy, he's Cal's old lieutenant. Squeeze him for info
    -Strike first, strike hard, hold nothing back. If you wait for him to make the first move, people you care about will die.
    He then shoves it towards the middle of the table without a word.

    Gordon looks at the paper.

    "Well, this might be helpful, and I'm not sending out an army, cause it would be a subject of laughter having an army armed with vaccums."

    Gordon shakes his head.

    "I'll have my people keeping an eye through. I'll let the rest of you know the moment any of my people spot him. Oh course, since I need more information, I will be paying a visit to GLoG to follow up on Magtok's advice."

    And now Gordon waits for the reactions of him paying a visit to another group.

    a human wearing a flowing blue robe. His head is completely shaved, though despite this he's a very pale person. no signs of a tan at all. must not spend much time outdoors. Worthy of not, however, is his piercings. A golden chain links from his left ear to his nose, a ring in each. there are also three more rings - two on his left, and one on his right. Wonder what those could mean?

    In any case, walking behind him is a human and a dwarf, both in silks, and both female. They each have the left sides of their heads shaved, and they are each a picture of beauty for their race. They also happen to have collars, and those who can sense magic can sense the connection to the man in the robe. They are very clearly slaves, finely dressed as they are.

    He walks forward to the council building, and says to the first person he sees, "I believe this the government of this city-state, yes? I am a diplomat from the Empire of Ascaerin, and I would like to speak with the governing body of the city, this council."
