    The Order of the Wren

    The Wren had been abed since the fight with Redeye. The twisted philosophy of the serial murderer still made him shudder, as he thought back to the frantic battle in the darkened stone head. He shook his head quickly, as if dismissing the dark thoughts, and pushed himself upright, weakly refusing Alden's protestations.

    With a gasp and a shiver throughout his body, he rose to his feet, making his way to the short balcony from which he regularly gave his speeches. This one would be short. The crowd outside was larger and more restless than it had ever been before. His celebrity had increased a great deal since that dark fight. Now the most famous serial killer the world had known, and the terror of the continent, was roughly tied below the balcony, almost naked as the baying mob fought for a scrap of his clothing as a keepsake.

    Making sure his face was covered, the Wren greeted the crowds. "Redeye is dead. His victims, however, many of them live on, and I must count myself as one of them. I have, under my protection, Doctors and children, both of whom Redeye tasked with my death, in exchange for the lives of their loved ones. They will be taken to Bloodhaven for treatment, and will not be blamed for their predicaments. I shall escort them myself. "

    "I must give particular thanks to Doctor Vassari, and his colleagues, for their knowledge of medicine and poison was invaluable in battling Redeye. I also give my thanks to King James, who graciously provided me the use of his spies, when he too was in need for them. The Ram also deserves my thanks, for his guides were also of help to me. But most of all, I thank every man and woman who fought with me against the killer, and I grieve for every one who gave their life. Operative Winters, who gave his life, and saved my own, will be remembered with honour. "

    "The struggle against Redeye has not been without cost, but it is over. We give honour to the dead, we rebuild, and we will continue on. We must." On the last word, the life seemed to go out of the Wren, and he simply nodded, spun on his heel, and returned indoors.

    Good day, sirs. Doctor Vassari has invited me as a representative of the Bookbinder's Guild to attend this council. My assistants are removing the cobwebs and various squatters from our old guild house here as we speak. I trust my presence in this hall is acceptable to you? Yes?

    I come before you today to talk about monopolies. We each have our own areas of expertise that we, as Guilds formed of the most talented people in the field, like to and deserve to have monopolies over. Having someone without the standards of the Sausage Guild taking care of the city's meat, for example, would be tremendously dangerous to the well-being of the average citizen. The Guild ensures quality, but to do so all work in a field must be done through the Guild. It is for this reason that my organization has a standing policy of seeking out and destroying presses that are outside of our control. With a press, any fool can create thousands of poorly-written pamphlets of incendiary ideas and drop them into the powder keg that is Runner's City. With a press, the city could burn. We do not wish to see that happen.

    It is for this reason that we would like to request that the Technists Guild please stop producing and distributing their hand presses. I know you mean well, that you think it is just good business, but it is harmful to the quality of discourse in this city when uninformed, unedited treatises begin appearing on the streets.

    So in other words hundreds of soldiers gave their lives defending this bridge just so it could be handed over to a king with no claims to it? The Guild has always been a good owner of this bridge, making trade-routes safer and cutting down on smugglers without any assistance from the other powers of this city.

    We haven't been selling them for a long time. We've more or less been keeping hem for internal record keeping and memos, making guild sensitive documents and diagrams, that sort of thing. The two public things we've done with it are "Factory Safety and You" and "The Technist Reading Primer". The safety book is just a checklist of what people can do to improve their safety in the workplace, including some cheap and simple ways for the managers and owers to increase workplace safety. The reading primer, well, we've been teaching people how to read. But we haven't been making any books to sell to them.

    This time, James takes the time to arrive in a less rude fashion. Specifying his arrival time in advance, he arrives punctually. Unfond of grandiose displays, he wears a simple black and gold outfit, and his ever-present, now well-fitted crown. He is shown in promptly, and proceeds to the main chamber, waiting patiently by the door until permission is granted for him to enter.

    I think a deal can be struck, then. I am more interested in the UAL's administration, the region they control, and access to the dock. We need more space, and more people. I'm sure that at least some of their thugs could be persuaded to work for you or the Peacocks.

    It seems the Church of Neposh is also working near the docks, though we could not find out what they are doing.

    OOC: So, we infiltrate them, take them over from the inside, then split all the stats we can get. I want control of the distrct, though. You can have more stats. Consider that the favour you owe me, if that's okay.

    I'm deeply apologetic over the results of the past month. There were certain miscomunications that lead to the assault on the Gear. We'd be perfectly willing to turn it back over for the payment previously addressed. However, thanks to the actions of certain other factions, we require a small infusion of credit to maintain the stability of the Smokestacks, something which is in your interests as well. If you can provide such a loan as well, we'd be happy to leave presently.

    Wallen soldiers start to distribute hot (Non alcoholic) beverages to the crowd, and keep some fires running.
    Luckily, it's not too cold that day.

    Lord Wallen walked before the group and said:
    "People are just getting here, and it's early. But we can begin. I am Lord Wallen, and I will be helping you to rebuild the neighbourhood. I have great ideas, but nothing I think is more important than what you can say.

    Ah, yes. It's an interesting project, we had a look at it. It seems to be getting quite big and unwieldy, your little structure down by the piers, though we must congratulate you on your security measures, not even your workers really know what they are doing. At least not those we compromised.

    Be assured, we'll come to terms with the UAL in a much more peaceful manner than with Fat Tippest. Your project will be left to continue.

    Where do you need to start from? Our tunnels are not everywhere, and the nearest terminus is in Heartsblood. If you can start from Old Jack's Run then it would probably be a simple matter to arrange for tunnels through the Painted Court. If you need to start further south however it may be more difficult.

    What do you mean by a private network? Something only under your territories or a network paralleling the main lines which only your men have access to. We must point out that while it might be private for everyone else the tunnels themselves are not the reason these lines are so efficient. In fact it is our specially shaped draft beasts which allow us to move around the tunnels with such ease. Since we have no intention of selling our creations, and you likely couldn't care for them properly if we did, even a private network would still necessitate our own presence.

    We also extend an invitation for you to speak to the SGA again if one of the other members has not already presented one.

    We do not believe that we will be able to assist in stabilizing the economy. First we of course have to consider the Warden's likely retaliation and have to keep most of our assets close to home for now. And second we are still pursuing the construction of our subterranean network of transportation tunnels. We actually feel that if we could extend it through the Triphage Untima it would be extensive enough to provide benefits to trade beyond what it is already giving us externally. And also be large enough to open to the public for the use of non-guild merchants and possibly the occasional passenger.

    Airships
    We have finished bringing Embassy Row under the control of the Guilds. So the question we have is should our representatives style themselves as city diplomats or guild negotiators.

    The Gears
    We are actually negotiating with the Gear's to establish more city infrastructure. We have considered their lightning generators, and while we are uncertain of their utility for our specific needs the thought has occurred to us that the citizens as a whole may be willing to pay for such a thing. And while they may not have the means to provide the necessary infrastructure we do, and the tunnels to supply it without causing undue construction on the surface.

    As such we would rather not see the Gear's capabilities harmed when we are considering the long term possibilities.

    Bookbinder's Guild
    We bid you welcome. It is always a good thing to see another guild moving back in to the Row. It has been neglected for far too long.

    As for your monopoly we of course have no issues with it. It is guild prerogative to maintain its own field.

    The Warden Situation
    We will wait to see what the king has to say. We have no intention of keeping either Guild's Hand or Orange Crown, but we do not wish to give the Wardens the means to consolidate without reassurance that they will not retaliate.

    While James waits he can admire the splendid murals along the walls of the main chamber. In the manner of true guild ostentatious each member of the SGA has a mural depicting its founding. Plenty of room along the walls has been left blank for future additions. The centerpiece however is a fantastic mural directly opposite the main entryway. It depicts the short vicious underground war known as the scouring in which the SGA reclaimed Guild's Row from the con men and thieves who had inhabited it. Urso Bloodhand figures prominently, but the other founding guilds are featured in some manner as well with their sigils etched discreetly into the mural's left side. Oddly enough while the mural depicts most of the opponents of the guild as individuals hidden throughout the painting are various figures that seem to be directing the others and although not in any sort of uniform they all have a matching symbol which is merely a grey shield somewhere on them. On the far right the grey shield is shown again in the manner of the Guild's sigils.

    Explanation

    ''I believe I should explain, that I declined to participate in the meeting with the Council the previous month, as I feared infiltration and tried to minimize risks of my activities against MU being found out. Lord Founder can confirm that I have dedicated my full resources to combating MU threat to the city.''

    ''I also thank Blackfists for assisting our city, when it needed help the most.''

    ''My efforts to root out MU infiltrators within my faction have proven successful, though unfortunately they managed to escape justice.''

    Lord Wallen Membership

    I second Mercantile Guild’s nomination of Lord Wallen. His earlier reluctance to join the Council, shouldn't bar him from membership.

    Votes in Favor: 2

    Wardens removal from Council

    The Wardens have failed to participate in the Council affairs or assist the Council in dealing with threats to the city. Due to their inaction I propose the removal of their membership.

    Blacksage District

    I propose three measures in regards to the Blacksage District.

    1. Council confirms Blackspell Watch as legitimate law organization with power to police the Blacksage District.

    2. The University Daimot is placed under the administration of the honorable Lord Founder as University Chancellor.

    3. The administration of the liberated Blacksage Districted needs to be determined.

    At this moment the following was requested:
    Lord Wallen: administration of Dogma
    Southside Black: unclaimed
    Northside Black: unclaimed
    Dead Campus: unclaimed

    If nobody claims control of the neighborhoods, I will inform the Blackspell Watch, they are free to claim them.

    Law of Sav Altulus

    ''I believe as first order of business we must determine the issue of private property and ownership. Do any of the factions in the City ‘’own’’ any parts of the city? Under what condition ownership of property or control over territory can be taken from them within the confines of law?''

    Matters of law have long been decided by the courts. We wish that you turn the Warden over for trial at the Silent Courts. Consul Blizzardmarch will judge the case personally, and legal council will be offered to both the defense and prosecution, though outside council is legal.

    Is this acceptable?

    Matters of the Bridge and Justice
    The fighting does seem to have stopped for now. I bring to the council that on matters of legality, the EBSA takes its traditional role of judge- with guilt or innocence to be judged at the Silent Courts.


    Lord Wallen Membership

    I do not oppose Lord Founder's addition to the council. If the number of council members is a problem, we will willingly give up our right to a voting seat as long as we may still be directly tied to the council- it will make the bureaucracy easier.

    Votes in Favor: 3

    Wardens removal from Council

    We agree that there should be serious discussion of this. They have yet to actually truly help aid any of the council's actions.

    Blacksage District


    1. If they agree to the proper training, following the regulations of law, and recognize the ruling government then we have no problems.

    2. We would prefer if no one organization had direct control over the university. Make it government owned, run and funded by the council and city. That way no one faction obstructs the rights and privileges that students deserve.

    3. We would take administration of the remaining districts, paticularly Dead Campus, to help facilitate the spread of total council influence, as well as expand our own network of field offices.



    Law of Sav Altulus

    According to law, everything is subject to Eminent Domain from the government- but the Halls of Final Justice and the Daisong Palace in particular are primarily government owned.

    Diplomatic Corps

    We would send legal advisers to instruct and aid the Diplomatic Corps.

    Daisong Palace

    The Base Camp in Daisong is still operational, to great cost for the EBSA. Now that Redeye and the Sifters are dealt with, may I suggest that we focus on retaking this symbol of government?

    We will send our trainers and legal counselars to the districts to train them on law and order as a supplement to their current level of, obviously excellent, training.

    University

    Once we hand over the University to a faction, they own it. No matter what, it will be known as the EGSE's University, or The Jame's University- which is dangerous. Look at the Librarian- once a institute of learning is controlled by a single power it becomes a political playing piece rather than a neutral institute that a poor man or a wealthy man can feel comfortable in sending his sons and daughters.

    Now loans to help create new branches, like a law school or a theological school, or a business school whether separate or part of the university I am in complete support for.

    Law of Sav Altulus

    How is this citizen friendly? Honestly, if you give the ownership of the districts to the various factions you don't help the citizens, you help the warlords of the city. Is there really any difference between this council and the Helduit Court? The answer is the Court has real power in their districts, while all the council can do is ask them to follow the rules and regulations that we set down.

    I believe that these factions, including my own, are all temporary power bases which only serve to destabilize the city and its inhabitants. The Council, or the government it decides upon must take a strong stance as the true power of the city or else it will never be recognized as legitimate.

    Daisong Palace

    It is our hope that it will become the true center of whatever government, at least the legislative branch, comes to pass. That way whenever the people look to the palace they know that the government is in control and working for them.
