    Lord Henry Wallen - Kara Lythene
    Spoiler
    Show
    Lord Wallen was ready, as always. He wore a long, black robe, with no garments. He was very tall and skinny, and a bit pale.
    His short blonde hair was in disarray, like always.

    He saluted Kara politely, but only answered her question after they were seated down in his office, with a cup of tea for both.

    "Mylady Lythene, that is a difficult question.
    An older noblemen would answer that government should go to the person that had the most right to it, by tradition and lineage (Both of which can be highly arguable at this time and age).
    I don't like my lineage too much, that is not a secret. You wouldn't like yours either if your father had thrown up in invauable art objets.
    But I like and respect tradition, because it can bring security and happiness to people; as long as it doesn't create conflicts that have to be mended with blood.

    Some commoners may tell you to destroy all nobility, and as you can imagine I deeply resent that.
    I understand where that comes from, but I don't believe in governments that can destroy complete parts of society simply because they don't like such parts.

    Others may tell you that we need to find a balance that allows commoners to prosper and grow, and that brings new life and change to nobility.
    That new balance could include democratic elements, but would have to include some place for the nobles (Specially very honorable and harmless places where we can put the stupidest of my social class to make them feel important and keep them out of the way).

    But, in the end it all comes down to what you want to do. I'm just a lord sitting in his castle. You can move the whole city if you mean to.

    I would be willing to rally the nobles behind your cause, depending on what your cause is.
    And I will be honest about my cause: My cause is the City."

    The woman takes a seat and waits quietly as you make your point, occasionally nodding her head at appropriate times, but overall keeping silent and very, very still. Her eyes, hidden by the darkened spectacles, could still be felt watching you as she listened, before you finished.

    "I am happy to hear that. We of the EBSA believe that a democratic election and government is for the best of the city. I believe that most of the people have had enough of the petty tyrant controlling the city and through extension- their lives"

    She leans forwards, and carefully removes her spectacles, revealing startlingly blue eyes as she smiles "Currently we are considering backing the Ram Revolution, but we wish to direct the course of the... formation of the government into something functional, legitimate, and orderly. Of course this means the backing of at least some of the cities nobility. What we are considering is two chambers of people. We are" she pauses and rolls her eyes "Currently in disagreement over some of the details of other power bases, but the EBSA top staff has agreed that one house elected by the people for legislating and a chamber of the nobility for overview. The exact nature of the power structure is not set in stone, and won't be until the meeting"

    She leans back "Is this, perhaps, something you would support?"
    She's Shona Han. Disappearing for a hundred years just means she's had a hundred years to plan. Trying to find out what happened to her is just going to draw her attention.

    Vassari considered his answer, before giving the boy a message: ‘’I will trust you. The whole mess in the Shattered Lands is because everybody wants to be ruling on the top, instead of working with what was given to them.’’


    Bloodhaven

    Vassari’s assistant Petyr scurried around the hospital in a perpetual state of hushed yelling. The doctor reprimanded him for disturbing the peace of the patients, but clearly you need to shout the ears off the people for them to do their jobs. There was a chance nobs were going to visit and those sorts could get offended over a fly on a curtains. Nothing said about some blue stuff spilled in the hallways to operations room, that nobody thought was his responsibility to clean. He was going to tear the ears off the cleaning staff. Had to keep stuff clean, cause doctor said it was good for patients. Had to keep stuff clean for nobs – Petyr didn’t like them, but they provided a lot of coin, the hospital was run on. He finally spotted the boy responsible for mopping floors, chatting one of the nurses. Well, he couldn’t shout, but he could humiliate the little snot in front of his girl. You could always find enjoyment in little things and the job didn’t look so bad no more.

    Piggy-Piggy Snout Tavern

    Doctor Vassari was relaxing near the fire, eating a goulash. It was hard to do it without staining the bandages and at home he usually didn’t bother. But it wouldn’t do to appear unkempt now. He realized that his position of safety in the neighbourhood hinged mainly on his reputation. The city was growing chaotic and he had to appear strong and unconcerned.
    Several men at the table next to him were reading a pamphlet. Vassari’s eyesight was good and he read it, despite the dim lighting. EBSA was calling for a general meeting. He imagined the chaos and shouting that would occur, if half of the ‘’city lord wannabes’’ would decide to attend.

    He pulled out the letter bearing EBSA official seal on it, already broken and quickly re-read it. Food for thought.

    Bloodhaven Hospital, Dr. Vassari’s Cabinet

    ''The costs for materials are going to soar. I wouldn’t be surprised if local toughs would start to collect tolls for goods and raise protection money on craftsmen. Plus merchants always work in premium, for operating in high risk environment.'' Francesca commented, looking over the plans, spread on her table.

    ''Which the city will soon become.’’ Vassari replied. ''What are you estimates for the project?''

    ''You have to give me a little more time. And it will depend on the price, Orson charges for his shack.''

    Lord Henry reflected deeply about Kara's words.

    "I would agree."

    "But I am not the issue" he thought.

    "You should watch your back if you go to other of the big houses with this idea. One or two of the BigOlds wouldn't let you live long after hearing that.

    I'm trying to join the smaller houses under a group protected by my banners, to be able to counterwight the old houses.
    Any support you can give me in that would be apretiated.

    What is your vission on the executive branch? A Prime Minister, a King or both?

    Thorny issue, that is. I would choose both, were I at your place. The King would have veto power over some things, and maybe a private army. The PM would have more power in short-term decissions.

    I tell you this because if you choose a king and not a PM, you will lose the support of the mob. If you put a PM and not a king, then the nobles are out.

    And, as dumb as many of the older houses may look when they divide and fight their little wars, that would cause them to close their ranks and choose a leader.
    Their private guards are insignificant individually, but a formidable force together.

    Maybe the Ram or some others would win at the end, but it would be a bloodbath."

    Four soldiers arrive quickly to the gates to escort her further in. Passing several barracks and a wide training yard, along with multitudes of soldiers performing various tasks, they enter a stone hall.

    At the end of the hall, past rows of faded banners, sets of armour and weapons hanging from the walls, is a heavy wooden table behind which currently sits only Commander Nathaniel Tarmin himself.

    "Our revolution wants what every revolution wants. We are fighting for the rights of the downtrodden and oppressed. Universal suffrage for all adults in the city, as well as citizenship, and some sort of declaration of universal rights, such as the right to speak, to assemble, to hold office, etc. An elected leader that presides over a group of representatives from every part of the city that makes the laws, and a court system separate from the main government that is charged with upholding a constitution that is yet to be written. As you could imagine, there are a few things that are going to have to happen before the writing of such a document, as we would not want to have input from only Runner's City. Of course, this is all very idealistic, and I am unsure of how much will actually pan out, but it is my hope that our view of this government will be the same as the one that we put into place.

    Surely you have heard of our great struggle for democracy. The Revolution is interested into expanding into Pisser's Kingdom, and as you are the rightful protectors of this area, we offer to fully integrate you into our growing government. In order to facilitate this, we would be willing to lend a hand in ridding your streets of the gang known as the "Knifehands". In exchange for this, we would expect your acknowledgement of the Revolution as the true government of the city, your deference to us in matters outside of your neighborhood, and the integration of your military forces into ours. We recognize the need to keep a militia for defensive purposes however, and would allow you to keep half of your forces (+ Mil) in Pisser's kingdom as a militia force, while the other half would be integrated fully into our army under Krodok. We await your reply, and will send a treaty for your leaders to sign with our next message, assuming you are agreeable.

    "Oh?" The Commander smiles.

    "A commendable goal. However, throughout our years of service to the city and our even longer years of fighting in the Shattered Lands, we've come to notice that an uneasy truce between unwilling partners to avoid short-term violence is, in the long term, worse for the populace than a short time of war followed by unification and peace. Not to mention the risks of letting the wrong people in control of various locations.

    An old man with a distinct limp comes near your compound, he says he is from the Church of Neposh and wishes to speak with you about the forming of the new government.
    (if allowed an audience)
    I haven't heard much about your proposal of a new government, but the Church of Neposh also favors order to chaos and to leave the dictatorship a thing of the past. We may not see eye to eye on every issue, but we believe those differences can be worked out. If I may ask more toward your plan for a new government?

    I'm assuming I can use one of my characters to create magic items, right? Also, The Mouth is going to be moving into Orn Totre to drum up support against the Secret Police. We will also be readying to send some military into the district.

    She chuckles, and removes her spectacles, revealing her startlingly blue eyes "We don't plan to make deals with the wrong people. What we are trying to do is establish a democratic government. What we need is more boots on the streets- protecting the populace and fighting the criminal gangs that are becoming violent. Our Greycloaks will start soon, and we are also attempting to converse with the Militia of Order and Justice."

    Suddenly she leans back, apparently not a woman who likes to stay still "The agreement is simply among like-minded military and law enforcement factions who all want to help the city, and combining their forces against the chaos"

    The pale red-headed woman merely chuckles at the cat calls, but ignores them overall until she reaches the Union Boss herself. She smiles at him, glancing around under her darkened spectacles. "Maybe, but is there a place that we can talk... in private?"

    You are brought to Dekan O'vail, an older human male, and Chief of the EBSA staff. He looks up from behind his desk and nods "Our plan is to support a democratic government, and we are trying to find a way to avoid as many casualties as possible doing so. What do you think about a new government?
    She's Shona Han. Disappearing for a hundred years just means she's had a hundred years to plan. Trying to find out what happened to her is just going to draw her attention.

    "Well, that sounds all nice and well.

    We here do not really care about the type of government in Sav Altulas, so long as the city is stable and in peace. Our concerns are towards defending it against outside threats. We intend to pacify Spicer's Circle both to make sure we can work unimpeded and also to secure a base for resources while there is no government to collect taxes and relay them to us. Once such a government emerges, we'll be fine with returning to our old position.

    If our men are needed in troublespots elsewhere in the city, we'll think about it if called."

    I do so much admire a man who goes to the effort of writing his letters in an interesting accent. A man who is a member of an organisation who is so dedicated to peace and unity, like the UAL.
    We are not opposed to peace, as a concept. But we are opposed to a peace that is enforced by thugs in badly tailored suits, and we would rather reserve the right to fight such a peace.

    So you've seen the other letters then? I have under my employ a talented secretary, though if it suits you better I'll have her paraphrase for you. My men and I are not thugs, we are workers and artisans that help the poor and downtrodden. Also, I saw your little poster, you think we work in a Gilded Palace? You think we're rich? We've got almost nothing, yet we give and give, helping Runner's City and all it's inhabitants. I'd mind my tongue if you think to insult us, we simply wished to let you know that if you made trouble we'd be the ones to end it.

Your folks don't seem to be too interested in any established system of governance, but I have an offer for you. I believe my family has the power to make the surrounding area a better place for all of its citizens, and if you will agree to allow us to establish governance over Swordsware we will pledge to protect your interests always and keep you and your markets safe. And the Lauriers could always use a group of skilled swordsmiths to keep our household guard well-equipped."

    OOC: I am willing to negotiate with them in exchange for taking control of Swordsware. If they want more business, I can do that. If they want promise of protection, I can do that. If they want someone eliminated, I can do that. I'd be happy to employ a bunch of them to make me some fine swords as well.

    In regards to The Pond, is MIL the only stat? Or are they fighting over the neighborhood on a more economical level? This is actually a general question when dealing with NPC neutrals. If I wanted to use something like ESP against them, does each minor NPC have an ESPD rating that I would have to surpass or only the particularly notable ones?

    How will subversion work? How will economic attacks work? Similar to 2126 at all? I figure an economic attack would be more effective against gaining control of a neighborhood dominated by merchants. While an espionage attack would achieve greater success in a fractured neighborhood such as The Pond.
