    The hand presses aren't capable of industrial scale printing. Mostly, they're ment to print internal communications, memos and orginzational information internally. The only real public application would be the literacy program for next year, which might serve to increase your profits, as all we'll be printing is the basics.

    My faith is what allows me to do great things. These people gave their sweat, blood, tears, and eventually lives for their cause. Now they've become unwilling pawns for the deamons that reside here. Uplifting this place to its rightful glory is our divine mission from the Great Neposh, and so our crusade will not rest until the evil that lurks in this place is banished, and these heros can move on to the eternal slumber they deserve.

    I personally have minimal objection, on several conditions. One, those working in the office must be hired from the neighborhood it is in, and two, that all factions not represented in the council receive minutes and transcripts of all provisional council meetings. Should we not receive these,we will make the reasonable assumption that you are planning to use military force against us and respond accordingly.

    There is another problem as well. There is no place in these neighborhoods you could build them. As nearly all of the homes are ancestral homes of hundreds of generations, nobody would be willing to sell land to you, and should you seize personal land for this purpose, your true colors will be revealed.

    Last month my forces, and the Militia of Order and Justice moved to restore order to the Mains, removing the stranglehold the Gangs had over the neighbourhood.

    During the operation we discovered that the Blackfist Brotherhood had been providing the gangs with finances. They knowingly provided money to criminals, to further their violent and oppressive control over the populace, and endangered the lives of our peace-keeping forces.

    I demand an explanation, and compensation for our losses. You can deliver the compensation to Dr Vassari, he is due it for his services to the city.

    I apologise for the earlier message. It was not of my personal hand, and was based upon misinformation.

    However, I am aware of your operatives moving through All Gods Hollow. The neighbourhood is known to harbour some truly vicious killers. I intend to move my own operatives into the neighbourhood shortly. I give you this warning so that our respective forces do not accidentally clash, and cause a tragedy.

    We also have plans for the Hollow, though nothing so important it cannot be changed. I propose a solution: Talk to those in the Hollow - if they will accept your rule, not only will I stand aside, I will help you to track down the vicious killers. In exchange, I would ask that you help me to do the same in the Pits. If the people of the area do not want you controlling them however, I cannot stand by and watch you force the matter.

    There are already Ram Supporters among the populace of the Pits - only the gangs (who are the very people we are seeking to rid the place of) are holding out due to their ties to those damnable Blackfists. Is that good enough? (OOC: I already have influence there, do you need more?) As to the Hollow, have you considered talking to the people? The Wren isn't a horrid organization, they're likely to accept you help in getting rid of the murderers. They're main organization is a volunteer group of militia - If you can get passed their deep seated depression they don't seem that bad. I assure you that if you contact them and they agree, we will hear about it. We have ears everywhere.

    We only attacked Embler, who initiated the hostilities. That your operation was harmed was an unfortunate result, of course. But if you've done business in the Shattered Lands, you must know of the Warden Order. We have much experience in protecting shipments in the Shattered Lands against any sort of threat, and as mentioned before, while we might not be as skilled in the arts of infiltration and sabotage, those are not really the skills required here. And whatever you may think of our methods, the Order does not betray a client's trust nor go back on their word.

    You leaving would be a big blow to the economy of this region, and certainly also costly for yourselves. We offer an opportunity for mutual benefit here.

    Of course I had considered speaking to the people. I simply wished to clarify that would accept this as sufficient evidence. It is easy enough to sway some in a neighbourhood to your side, after all.

    Regardless, if this is considered sufficient, I will of course, oblige.

    Though, I assure you, Ram that you would not hear a word I say if I did not wish it to be heard. And my ears hear as far as yours.

    Greetings, brave men of the Hollow Militia.
    As you are no doubt aware, the Cult of the Blessed Mad is dead. They ruled over Lack's Own with a twisted combination of fear and madness. Now, I intend to bring my men north, to bring order to the Hollow. Will you accept my aid?

    My lady,
    You do me kind. I would be honored to attend, knowing your fair presence shall grace the event. I thank you also for providing transcripts of council meetings. You see, I would like to be assured that the council is ruling justly and fairly so that I can keep the old nobility from getting up in arms- metaphorically speaking of course- about not being represented.

    Thank you. I fear she may be planning something more... immediate, but with our antimagic we should be able to keep her at bay for now.

    One more thing- find yourself a good royal genology, and pick a random king of old who looks like you.
    You see, most of the time, in Talidor, at least, kingship is determined not by who actually is of 'royal blood,' but whoever claims to be most convincingly- the longest one line of royalty ever ruled was three generations, before one of those 'long lost heirs' stepped in. Really, whoever can get the nobility to say they're king, is. Now, you can imagine that all changed when the sorceress came into power, but the old nobility families have long memories.

    Yes, we did, and we are proud of it. Those gangs you claim are criminal oppressors are people of this city. They unite for mutual protection, support and friendship, as is the right of any person.
    And yet, you move into their district and kill their men. These men have families. They have jobs. They have children. What gives you the right to brand them unworthy of life?
    Yes, we support them. Of course we do. We will support whomsoever we need to make this city a better place, a place of freedom.
    As for Doctor Vasari: we already protect the doctor's life and his interests. Not out of compensation, but because he is a good man, doing good things. We will continue to do so.

    ''I realize your reluctance of giving anything to the workers. That’s way I propose to arrange it as you being forced to implement those measures by my authority as the city official. This would give an impression to the workers, that to get more stuff, they’ll need to petition the city, instead of you. So you’ll be able to leave it for me and ESBA to deal with their demands – and I promise you I recognize the valuable work you are doing and that some things ought to stay as they are.''

    ''I do not wish to slow the production. I promise that whatever regulations I’ll deem necessary, they won’t make the factories unprofitable, unless one is running a veritable death trap. If a new production process that is both inherently deadly and profitable is invented, then as long as the workers are aware of the risks, I have no problem with it. A man can chose to take up sword and face death daily in the army. A worker can chose to risk his life at the factory, to feed his family. However, a soldier should expect his sword not to break in the middle of the battle.''

    ''I believe myself to be a reasonable man, and I plan to engage some consultants to aid me in understanding how things work here. I should be able to regulate things in the district for a time, until a suitable official is ready to take my place. Your alternative is either mobs of the workers rising up at the call of the Anarchists revolution or United Labour Alliance offers, you wouldn’t be able to refuse.''

    We understand the damage the Wrekans have caused on your family. This position will be the first step toward retribution. It is your chioce on who should have the post as long as they are also loyal to the faith. But remember, they will have the job of leading the Fists of Neposh, and the Fists success will lead to quicker judgement on those that work against us.

    I am the Oracle of the Great Neposh, and you are partially correct: their bodies have the rest they deserve. However I do not believe their souls share the rest. They gave their lives to bring peace to the city, to protect their loved ones. If they could take a step outside they would see the distruction for themselves. The city has never been a more cursed place. Blood is flowing in the streets, and the people are scared to fight for their own freedom.

    You say it is a great honor to be among these dead, yet if they knew how their sacrifices have done nothing to improve this city they would be furious. I think you have decieved them into believing lies about the outside world.

    We have heard your recent letter, and I am supprised by how like our desires are. Many of the other factions in the city have already forgotten the oppression of the sorceress and the secret police, and how much bravery, strength, and blood it took to stand up to them.

    Before we start sending the wrong messages, this does not mean we fully agree with you. We believe this city needs a centralized government to give it the strength to become great again.

    "Don't pretend to have the moral high-ground now. You deliberately hid your involvement. You knew the people wouldn't like you defending criminals."

    "People living in such neighbourhoods are perfectly within their right to band together for protection. I wish those people the best of luck and good tidings until order can be restored to their neighbourhoods. These groups however, do not have the right to commit crimes, or acts of violence against those who are not members of their group."

    "The Gangs of the Mains committed such acts, beyond that which could be accepted for people in their desperate position. The good people in the mains did not resist our efforts. Those that did, were concerned only with their own power and selfish desire. They gave us no alternate. We regret the unfortunate loss of life that was necessitated by their actions."

    "Returning to the matter at hand; I appreciate that you are trying to do good, but you made an inexcusable mistake, and should pay for it. I once again demand you donate a significant portion of your own assets to Dr Vassari."

    "The gangs made little attempt to hide their crimes. There was more than enough evidence to justify our actions. And now that we have many of them in custody, witnesses are coming forward, the evidence is building up, and the full extent of their depravity is clear. You are welcome to send witnesses, to observe our courts in process."

    "You said yourself, you already provide money to the good doctor. In which case I am asking nothing extreme of you. Instead of giving the doctor a sum of money every month, give him the source of the money. It is essentially the same, but you will not have the option to cease paying him, and use the money to bribe criminals instead."
