    On the Devices, well.... we have a bit of a lead. There happens to be someone who sometimes works with the stone wolves. He's been stealing guild secerts, and well...... Mr. Ryan, may we use a cable on somewhere sensitive without it killing him? Normally, we'd just dump him in the charcoal box, but we need to find out how much he knows first.

    The Stone Wolves have been eliminated. I think I know who you are talking about - he managed to escape our encirclement with the help of his machines. We do not know of his present location.

    We have heard disturbing rumours of Merdallan agents within the City, most likely working in some capacity to ensure that the future rulership of Sav Altulas will be favourable to the Kingdom instead of the Empire. They've already had some contact with the Guilds who control most of the City's finances, including the main trade route to the Empire.

    In addition, we find ourselves in a need to recruit and train new men quickly to both replace losses in the Shattered Lands and consolidate gains therein. Would it be possible to acquire some trainers and/or basic equipment? We've got little to pay with for now, but we are doing our best to assist the Empire within the City and should soon have stores of raw materials that we can hopefully convert to capital.

    This is an official warning. We are going to pacify and take control of the regions directly surrounding Sav Altulas. You've seen us annihilate the men you sent to help the Stone Wolves, along with the Wolves themselves - their shattered remnants fled the region. You are surrounded and weak, and the City is directing more and more of its attention outwards. Forts border your lands, our patrols and scouts pass through them.

    If you put yourselves under our protection, trade your goods through us to the City and do nothing more to fight against us, we will let you keep your holdings and most of your profits.

    If you refuse, we will put the mines under the administration of someone else.

    I believe the blackfists were against that proposal, and since this is technically a deal between them and James, I'm inclined to give in to them. That being said, if your willing to provide several judges, the city is large enough we can call up several juries at once, cutting down the time it will take to run someone through the system. We'd also need to get, at the least, the major factions in the city to agree that a jury summons is illegal to turn down, or the system will collapse (or at least, only be workable in our neighborhoods). but that can be fully dealt with in time.

    First, let me welcome you to the city. I hope you will find yourselves as successful in your recent exile as many of us have already.

    First we would like to correct a misapprehension. We are not merchants. We are workers. The sausage Guild is formed for the benefit of its workers and adheres to the wishes of its workers. The fact that you are equating us with some theoretical merchant class shows us that you are regarding the Guild from the completely wrong perspective.

    Now as to your proposal we are willing to accept it. However our good name has been impugned. If you would be willing to investigate Pepperstoch and determine who was behind this it would go a long way to clearing up relations between us.

    First of all we thank you for your assistance in keeping the rioters out. Second we have a proposal for you. You are collecting information on everything as it passes through Allscross yes. Well what if you could collect information from everywhere in the city. We have in mind a network of magic. Runes laid below the streets that could track objects as they move and flow around the city. Obviously the details of how various objects would be tracked would need to be worked out, but as a first step we plan to implement such a runic grid underneath Gilded. And we wonder if you would be interested in the project.

    We are currently in negotiations with the Blackfist so perhaps this will all be settled amicably. However we would ask if other members of the SGA could contribute to our security in the coming month. It is possible they are simply trying to dissuade us from attacking while they attack again, and unfortunately our security measures have proven inadequate for such a conflict.


    Security
    Spoiler
    Show
    On a similar subject we are contemplating installing a much improved security system. Rather than relying on the memories of our guard captains, who of course can't memorize each member of the guild, we are thinking of creating a magical security system. By using some sort of guild seal we could identify all legitimate guild members easily, and by extension identify non guild members attempting to cause trouble quickly.

    We were planning to implement this in Gilded first, but if any other members of the SGA wish to be involved we are open to collaboration.

    (It could also build off the security work we did last turn.)


    Projects
    Spoiler
    Show
    Main problem with any build up is where to put it. With the loss of Pepperstoch I'm at my cap. I'm willing to invest in increasing the SGA's infrastructure though. Give it its own cap. That or something like the security net I'm proposing which is more of a trait than actual stats. Equipping all our forces with guns would also work.

    None of my metro goes under Warden Territory. They have been a bit leery of letting my tunnelers under their buildings. :)

    Magic Birds
    Spoiler
    Show
    My magic is going to go into the Guild Seals. Which is going to be more than just objects. It's also going to be grid of runic magic under my neighborhoods that tags anyone entering with varying levels of knowledge based on what the runic grid has on file. So my officers would basically be able to see at a glance if someone belongs or not. I have some ideas for a more offensive approach to keep track of other factions, but I am obviously focusing more on the defense until I feel secure.

    ''However, you may know, that I take a certain view on crime. Certain forms of it, I believe are much better managed by criminals. And while murder or theft are things not to be tolerated, there are grey areas, victimless crimes, that harm no one. Now in bad hands, those grey areas can turn bad. There is a certain saying. The best way to keep away a dragon, is to have one. Would you be amendable to such views?''

    Hm.

    We will give you a month to search for clues undisturbed by my men if you swear an oath to leave the neighbourhood under our control afterwards and to not attempt any subversion.

    No of course we won't swear such an oath. There is no guarantee that we will find the perpetrators in a month and we will retain control of Pepperstoch for as long as necessary. Once we find them then you will help us bring them to justice and we will turn control of the neighborhood over to you as agreed. But we won't bind ourselves to an agreement that could cut our investigation short while it is still underway, then the perpetrators would never be found.

    That is unacceptable. You could as well spend years investigating and not find anything, or centuries if there simply is no traces to be found, if there even was a true conspiracy at work. And we couldn't even know if your investigation had concluded.

    As for 'retaining' your influence, you currently have none in Pepperstoch and your investigators will have to work through the rioters. Regardless of whether the riots were instigated by a third party, the people of Pepperstoch despise you now and will continue to do so.

    We will give our men orders to work with your investigators in the neighbourhood and hand over to you any evidence we come upon, but we will be moving in.

    And as we have already said your men will only muddle what evidence there is. We are willing to accept a limit, but one month is too short, we propose three.

    It could be foreigners, however why are you so quick to dismiss the Wardens. They are certainly eager to keep us from investigating the matter properly.

    All right. We will give you a choice. Work with our men right now, move in, hopefully our methods will be of assistance instead of muddling the tracks if you coordinate properly. The Wardens are extremely disciplined and can be trusted not to destroy what should be captured.

    Alternatively, swear an oath to, regardless of the current results of the investigation and actions taken thereof, peacefully give us control over the neighbourhood of Pepperstoch after two months from this day forward, and to not intentionally attempt to subvert said control later by any means.

    We are actually quite willing to accept your aid in discovering the culprit. We understand that you may have bias, but we will believe the Blackfist will be working to clear there name, and perhaps even the Wardens will help. With so many sources of information in addition to our own investigators any bias should cancel out.

    It does not matter, but I find it worrisome that you of all people, as a doctor, are advocating such use. I myself find such people dull company, hardly capable of advanced logic. No, I would have to know specifics, doctor. If you wish to meet in person to discuss this, I would be happy to oblige, though I may be leaving the city briefly in the coming months on business.
