    Well, our friends in Downwind told us that you kept making allusions to Fat Tippest and the dangers of associating with certain people. Since we are associating with them and are the most involved in Tippest, the connection seems likely.

    Of course I will attend the meeting. Madame Beteoui will be there.

    For now, pretty much all the New Noble houses are behind our banners.

    We expect to have the support of several Guilds and merchant houses in little time, if things develop.

    We see you have not called the EBSA to the new meeting. Is this a punishment for their failure to colaborate with the Palace?

    Your Majesty, regarding that matter, I may have a solution that might fix the matter to your pleasure.

They didnít. So now Iím warning the Wild Mages, that things may end badly for them, though naturally the dangers they face are certainly not Blackfist Brotherhood. Truth be told, I might qualify as a grave threat to them. So it was an attempt on my part, to make them recognize that my advice is not just idle talk, not to besmirch your disreputable name.

    We have a great many very large lizards, with very large claws, and very large teeth. If that fails our Carvers will be on hand to break up disturbances. Even without weapons they are intimidating, and if a full scale invasion occurs we will call in our shaper mages. And if that fails we feel that the ban will be so well and truly broken by that point that lifting it for our own troops isn't going to cause any problems. We don't expect that to happen however.

    In any case we estimate that it will cost [9 Wealth] to extend our subways through the Lomb Circle, [3] per neighborhood. We cannot afford the full cost ourselves in a single month. So how fast we can complete it will depend on how much you believe you can invest.

    Yes it is two wealth for the better pumps. You still need to buy two though as far as I know.

    "Thank you all, for sparing the time to be here today."

    "I have called this meeting to discuss the cities government. As order has nearly entirely been restored to the city, I believe it is time for the temporary council to step down in a favour of a more permanent system"

    "I make no secret of my belief, that my blood grants me the divine right to rule the city. But I do not wish, nor believe it sensible to hold absolute power. I am here today to compromise, to offer you all a measure of power, and to find out which each of you wants of your government, and do my best to give it to you."

    "As to the the offering of power, I will present it in the form of two proposals, which were suggested to me by factions I have invited here today. If they are to your satisfaction, I will make them parts of my government.

    Legislative Proposal

    "The first is a proposal by House Wallen, to grant the legislative power of the city to an assembly of the cities factions. You would all have the right to be a member of this assembly, and vote on matters of importance to you and the city. I would retain the power of veto.

    Executive Proposal

    "The second proposal is by the Sausage Guild, and relate to taxes. I understand the current system for collecting taxes is not viable, and I hope we can find a viable system here today.

    The Sausage Guilds proposal however relates to the spending of taxes, specifically that the power to decide the budget should be given to a commission. Every faction that pays taxes would be part of the commission, and be able to debate and vote on how the taxes will be spent for that month. I would also get a vote and would have both the power to break ties and veto budgets

    Open discussion

    "I apologise if I presented either proposal incorrectly. Feel free to correct or elaborate on any part of it. I open this meeting to discussion from all parties. What do you all think of the proposals, and what else do you desire of the government?"

    "Not that I can think of off the top of my head, I'm afraid," says Alexandre. "Our most immidiate plans have to do with strengthening the ties of this city with our homeland, both trade-wise and culturally. There is an inordinate amount of Imperial influence in Sav Altulas, as I'm sure you've noticed, and while I will not deny that the Empire has its good points I must favor my homeland over its ancient enemy."

    "There is a slight problem with that," says High Watchman Kos. "Namely, the Militia adheres to its own faith, that we would like to give to the people as well.

While we do not expect everyone under our protection to convert to our faith, we do hope that some might see our example and join of their own free will."

    Surely you protect other faiths even if the order itself worships the Most Just One. Is allowing our preachers into your territory a problem?

    We are not looking to combine our groups, just work around each other to help both of us reach our goals. You would allow our preachers to preach in the Orders territory, and we will allow the Militia into the Church's districts to help lower the crime rate.

    "I'm honored to attend this meeting.

    On the Legislative Proposal, I'd like to add something, to outline how it would work. It wouldn't be a Council, such as the one we have created as provissional Government. It would be two chambers, one formed by Nobles, and other formed by Commoners.

    The chamber of Nobles would have a fixed number of seats (a third; perhaps?); that would be held by the heads of the bigger families. The other seats would go to nobles elected by their peers.


    Commoners would be elected by their peers.
    OOC:

    Representatives per neighbourhood; factions would depend on Influence and Reputation to gain seats; some seats would be gained from controlling neighbourhoods.
    Should ask Zem, but such a Parliament should grant Influence to its members, at least.


    The Commoner's Chamber will debate and outline Bills to prepare laws. The Chamber of Nobles will aprove such bills, or modify them and return them for aproval at Commoners.

    Taxes should be prepared by a commision with members from both chambers, as well as a royal representative.

    The King should (And must have, in our opinion) executive power to allow him to protect and rule our city.
    Discussions on what the relative powers of the members of government should arise from this discussions.

    On the Executive Proposal, it is our belief that the aforementioned Commision should assist the King in tax collection, as well as help decide how the taxes are spent."

    We would propose a third chamber. The House of Merchants whose seats would not be fixed or elected, but rather dependent on the amount of taxes that are paid. If after all we guilds would be paying the highest taxes we would require some say in how those taxes are created and used.

    The House of Merchants should be given the power to propose the city's budget as well as final approval on any new taxes proposed by the other houses.

    And as a side benefit it basically legalizes paying for a seat. Except that the money actually goes to the government rather than bribes to nobles and common citizens for their votes.

    On the power of veto, I have one issue. This is acceptable only if the power of veto is not absolute; were that true, the executive leader- you, in this case, would be able to completely deadlock any legislative action should you disagree with them. This is unacceptable. I would wish to amend the legislative power to overrule a veto in the case of a clear super-majority.

    On the regulation of taxes, I see an illogicality. If the king were to get a vote and the power to break ties, then the king would effectively have two votes, which, coupled with the power to veto any budget which vote which does not go his way, could hypothetically entirely dominate this area of legislation as well.

    How much control, exactly, do we have over the UAL now? We made a deal with the Chosen to split the territory, how does that work? Do we get any of the UAL's stats? Do they still exist? Could we read messages sent to the UAL?

    I am disturbed by the meeting recently called by the supposed "King" James. This meeting, combined with his attempt to enforce a tax upon the people, leads me to believe that he may be trying to usurp the rightful government of this people from the Council and our provisional government. At the very least, if they are discussing matters of government, all members of the Council should be invited and asked to participate, considering we're the closest thing the city has at the moment.
