    The Arena

    The man whistled to himself, a low, slow, sad melody, as he walked past the stakes that had been set up at the arena's main entrance, a shattered skull, face barely recognizable, on each.
    Sixty-seven executions. A high number. He did not particularly like that it had to be done, but he saw the necessity for that. The people had wanted the blood of those who had destroyed their children, their brothers and their parents. That was justice, that was right.
    No, what he didn't like was the spectacle. He would have preferred a dignified execution, a small process, only the accusers and the accused. The dead didn't deserve to be paraded around for entertainment.
    But in the end, they had gone for this. Cheers and sledgehammers, full seats, stakes out in the public. The people wanted it, the people got it.

    It may be difficult to arrange that, as the writ of ownership for the University has been located in the heirloom chamber of the Gantris family. It appears that their family once owned the university and moved out when the Librarian seized power and killed Lord Amos Gantris. Interestingly, a second, nearly identical, writ of ownership was found in the possession of the Holfeather family, but the family historian says it was likely forged by an enterprising Marjorie Holfeather (neť Cynthia) some 40 years after the Librarian took over the university. In addition, it appears our own Abraham Pontiss is the direct descendant of the last Dean and Headmistress of the university. It may be possible to make you, let's see, Patron, Benefactor, Adjunct Principal Chancellor, and possibly some other titles which sound good to to the populous. As for actual ownership, that may be impossible, but we can, with some political shenanigans, make it seem as if you do. (OOC: Perhaps, but it would be difficult to gain influence if you are not actually influencing it. I propose to split the influence (rounded to you rather than me, to be fair), but I would like the stat bonuses.)

    Membership
    I would like to respond the the untrue statement made by the representative from the Champions of Sovereignty. I have never, nor do I intend to, "express apathy" towards the Council. I would be honored to accept should my participation be desired.

    University
    The administration of the university will be made up of a board of education formed by the heads of each department, Dr. Vassari among them, as he has agreed to the proposal of a medical education wing. In addition, there is are history and government, magic, science, language, and arts departments planned. The science and medical wings are the only new additions to the original at the moment, and we will likely be adding more to the plan as we proceed. As the university is still unmapped, we have yet to know how it will be laid out physically. Lord Pontiss has been nominated as Dean of the university, and the writ of ownership for the University has been located in the heirloom chamber of the Gantris family, but we are unsure of his plans for it. He will likely pass if off to another, as he has little interest in the university. The university will be within the full jurisdiction of whatever government comes into place, and the council for now, but will be operated independently. No one organization will have sole control of the university, as the board of education will be made up of learned men from all parts of the city. Lord Pontiss will be equal to them as Dean.

    MU Sifters
    I confirm that all MU Sifter Magi have been removed from my organization. Lord StigBalathad and his men were able to catch them trying to rob Lord Pontiss' home, and they fled the city.

    James enters the main chamber, nodding cordially to each of the representatives and greeting them in turn. He walks over to one of the empty places around the meeting table and stands behind it.

    Taking a breathe for confidence, he begins;

    "Thank you for granting me this meeting. Since we last spoke, I have had a significant change in thought. I now see it was wrong of me to consider limiting your independence. If your actions threaten the city, we will have issue, but otherwise you are free to act as you wish."

    "As I have now made public, the throne is willing to defend your association from all threats, and make your monopolies legally binding."

    "We officially recognise your claim to all the neighbourhoods you currently own, though you must ensure that the cities laws are enforced within them. Also, as citizens of the kingdom, we must demand a tax from your organisations. A sum of [t.wealth] equal to 10% of your [direct attributes], payable to the throne every month."

    "I will require that your organisation appoints a representative to provide economical advice to the throne, and ensure the cities taxes are going to their best use. As a financial group I trust there will be few who can provide better advice than you."

    Well, we might not be able to pay for a few months. Heres why.

    1) The smokes have recently gotten very unstable, due to the blackfists takeover of Fat Tippest.

    2) We have to pay a considerable amount each month for fuel (1/5 our direct stats in WEL each turn).

    3) We are going to be helping to adress the Economy in the smokes in the next few months, as well as remove our dependance on coal.

    So, we'll pay the Taxes, overhead and all, but the next few months might be a bit tricky.

    Tax Proposal
    Before any talk of taxes commences the current situation needs to be addressed. We do not trust the Wardens to not retaliate against us. We would need some guarantee to that effect before we release Orange Crown and Guild Hand back to them.

    We would also prefer that Traitor's Bridge be returned to the Mercantile Guild perhaps with some Crown oversight rather than simply give the tolls to the Mercantile Guild. It is after all far simpler to stop giving a gift than to take it in the first place. You yourself might not do so King James, but no King lives forever.

    1. If we are to make such compact, I request that it must be done officially.

    It must be in writing, composed by ESBA, blessed by the Law Magic of the Militia of Order and Justice, in presence of the nobles of the city (ESGE & Lord Wallen) and made public for all commoners to see. The Church of Neposh appears to be growing as mainstream religion of the city, so perhaps we can also invite their priest as representative of the divine.

    2. Personally, Iím prepared to pay the tax. However, this is conditional on Mercantile Guild accepting this agreement as well.

    3. I believe that if the right of Mercantile Guild to all dues from passing traffic and right to manage flow of trade through the Traitorís Bridge is confirmed as part of this compact, the Bridge can be declared as under royal control. The kingís troops can move unimpeded and in the times of war or similar crisis, the King can assume control of the gates, though dues should still be paid to Mercantile Guild. This should be binding on the descendants of King James.

    4. I think, the issue with the Mercantile Guildís damages should be addressed. Due to the losses they suffered, they donít have manpower to protect their trade caravans. With Warlords growing bolder, perhaps as protector of the Guilds, King James could assist the Mercantile Guild, both with protection of their trade and direct some of the taxes to assist the Guild in building up defenses for our trade.

    5. It does appear, that you command the loyalty of Wardens. If they will truly follow the word of the King, then there should be no problem. However, what if their submission is feigned and they now harbor resentment to your majesty?

    6. As for your promise to make Monopolies binding, there is an issue with hand presses. The Militia of Order and Justice and the Ram Revolution seem to have them, and those are under purview of Bookbinder's Guild. Would you address this issue?

    Speaking before the assembled guild leaders Joshua begins Greetings. Now, I've talked individually with many of you regarding the project my masters are currently working on, a great Network which will draw the lightning from the heavens and use it to free us from dependence on imported coal and gas to power factories and light laboratories, as well as light and heat homes and buildings without need for oil or wood. The Network should be completed by the end of the month, barring outside intervention or disaster. So, I'd like to see if any of you would be interested in providing funding for the Network, and in exchange I'll make sure that extending it into the territory under your control is high on our priorities. Reasonable deals have already been worked out with both the Sausage and Technists' Guilds. Such investment would have the doubly good effect of securing gainful employment for the teeming masses in Factories South and the rest of the Smokestacks, which should help stabilize the economy somewhat.

    Stopping for a breath and a drink of ice water, he continues If anyone here in uninterested in such an investment, we would instead like to ask for a loan. Quite simply, the actions of the Blackfists have unsettled the whole district, and ffurther economic collapse would only play into their hands. With some loaned wealth, which would be repaved with reasonable interest of course, we could stabilize and improve the district

    We have encountered an unexpected expense in the form of a tax. We are uncertain if we will have the funds to pay you for the wiring. We will let you know.

    We would also need more reassurances for what the tax money would be used for.

    It is also staggeringly high for the Sausage Guild. Not every guild is made of money. Most of our assets are in our shaper labs and meat carving pits. Having to pay taxes on such would cripple our ability to actually produce profits and invest in new infrastructure.

    Only Scholar's Compass, which has been under our influence for sometime, would we have a true stake in. The others were just something that we would step into if there were no other takers.

    Eminent Domain

    Eminent Domain is an important governmental function. We, as the Council, have not used it yet- and rarely do we do so. The fact remains is that as long as we remain intelligent men and women of character then we will not misuse it. If there is a warlord at the gate, and we need to create a new line of walls- without eminenet domain, we could not do that.

    I would not mine regulation of when and why we can enact a provision, but giving power to factions rather than the people directly or the government is putting a fire to a powder keg.

    A veto is best placed in the hands of one man with undivided loyalties rather than one man elected by many parties. Indeed we think the veto is best placed in the hands of the king. As such we would want the matter of how to allocate funds be switched around.

    Each of us who pays taxes gets a vote on the budget. The king also gets a vote and would have both the power to break ties and veto budgets. We also propose that you get more people paying taxes. So that the SGA cannot be accused of controlling the city's budget.

    In addition we propose the creation of a genuine city watch. Something which can be trusted by all sides to keep the peace impartially. And that people, like us, who are not wealthy in coin can contribute man hours to it to accrue a tax break.

    Spoiler
    Show

    lets see if I can cover everything:

    On The Wardens
    The exact punishment for the wardens I leave between them and the Champions, as long as they stay within legal means. I also support their removal from the council, on the grounds that they have yet to support any move made by the council, as well as their recent violent actions in disregard for the law.

    Lord Founder's Nomination
    Should the Wardens be removed from the council, I would support the Lord Founder as a replacement member. However, I am wary of having a 6 member council. It would be too easy to deadlock.

    University
    The Revolution is in favor of the ESGA's proposal of having the university run by the dean and representatives from each of it's colleges.

    Blacksage
    The neighborhoods that no faction has a claim to should be free to vote where they go: either to a faction of their choice, or to a government of their creation.

    Eminent Domain
    I am with the EBSA. While there should be regulations on when and why eminent domain can be used, it is an integral and necessary part of government.

    Diplomatic Corp
    The Revolution would be willing to sponsor the corp - we could supply diplomats, if there were a place to teach them all the fancy ways of diplomacy (most of our citizens are from the lower class, after all). We would also be willing to provide a protection detail for the diplomats, or at any consulate set up in a foreign nation.

    i agree with the formation of a city watch. many neighborhoods of the stocks already have the beginnings of such a thing...or they did before the Wardens came and scared them off. i will see about rounding up those that remain and officially organizing them.

    How much protection do you think will be needed? The Revolutionary Army is only so large, and some divisions will need to stay in the City. It would be worthless to have over protected diplomats and an undefended city.

    i dont imagine more than a few divisions will be needed. if the skills of the meralldon knights are not exagerations then i really dont think we could stop them if they desired conflict.

    Excellent. We will provide 2 MIL for the diplomatic corp, with the provision that they can be recalled if needed for the protection of the city. We would of course inform the diplomatic corp before doing so.

    Actually, we have to revise our earlier statement. Although your labour isn't necessary per se, if you could provide manpower (morale) for the building and expansion of the cable network, we would be able to make much more progress, either electrifying the home of the Pits, or extending the network into important buildings in farther off districts

    "The Party agrees to the tax, as proposed by his Majesty.
    We have a few proposals on top:

    - First, there should be a procedure for accepting new guilds. As Industry grows and develops, new ideas and ways of doing things are bound to appear. It would be better if the guilds were prepared for that.

    - Second, Law should be used to protect you and your property. Our government has been somewhat innefective as that"

    I must insist. If we are going to tax them we have to rule them. Constitution for all!!!

    I ask for a vote.

    On the Wardens: I vote in favour of their destitution. Their actions are inexcusable.

    Blacksage District
    The Party will be starting important rebuilding projects, to rebuild the neighbourhood.

    We wanted to build a technomagical school (A school that combines basic magic with crafts to create wondrous items); is the University already in charge of that?

    We wanted a free school, available for the brigthtest children in town despite class and wealth.

    Eminent Domain
    It's a dangerous power. My belief is taht we should refrain from using it unless absolutely necessary.

    1. I believe acceptance of the new Guilds can be done with a simple vote.

    2. The issue of property is rather important, but as I understand, King James has agreed to protect it for the Guilds, so that would mean there is no issue.

    3. City Watch

    I believe District Watches should be established and then subordinated to a single central authority, that would coordinate them and ensure cooperation.

    Blacksage District: Blackspell Watch
    Gilded District: Asingiries Watch
    Triphage Untima: Market Watch

    I have a proposal to Mercantile Guild about establishing watch for Stacks Districts, which I plan to discuss with them later this evening, when I visit the Stacks.

    4. I ask that while the major part of the taxes went to restoring the trade, a smaller portion went to fund the restoration of the University. Specifically, the funds should go to the Bookbinderís Guild for printing books for the students.
