    [i dont know what we will do about the whole printing press incident, since GM has not responded yet.]

    The Guild plans to split its assets between helping you defend, retaking Drydocks and perhaps stealing other areas from the Wardens depending on how things go...

    expect atleast 2 ESP or so to help you. normally i would offer all of it to you but i refuse to let the Wardens get too comfortable in the Drydocks and plan to do something about it. they are sending in a company of the Gatekeepers Guard to patrol the area. cant say i have ever heard of them...in other words i will see what i can do depending on if i find it possible to retake Drydock.

    i just had another idea regarding a way to help me in Drydock. you can read my message to the Shipwrights and the subsequent message to GM. my goal is to take the neighbourhood outright but plan B is just eliminating any real hold the Wardens have over the area

    plan C is of course torching the area...(to be avoided at all costs)

    sending Sorenson and the rest of my engineers from the Gear to help the Shipwrights would give me some influence over them correct? this would of course be coupled with WEL and ESP among other things.

    would i need to contend with the Wardens morale or just the Shipwrights? i understand there is whatever stats Murska put towards this but i think morale could be the deciding factor here.

    I respect personal choice. If a man in a late age, choses to endanger his life in reckless adventures, should I, as Doctor force him to stay at home with his loving wife? No. It’s that man’s personal choice and as it doesn’t harm others, what right do I have to interfere with it? I can however, do my best to lessen the negative consequences of person’s choices. And in case of recreational substances, a more reliable supplier from Elfwatch, which I know to maintain standards and class, would be a safer option.

    Two things. You persuade the nobles*, that they can do better with a different supplier of the recreational substances. And should a Sky Watch be formed, well, they let people to have their hobbies, if they don’t hurt anybody.

    Monopoly: if Bookbinders and Gears reach no compromise, we declare Gears as wanted men – subject to paying fines or jail, should they fail to pay those fines. Between SGA and neighbourhoods, that respect ESBA law, we’ll have a considerable part of the city barred to them. If this doesn’t work, we’ll think of a more direct approach. Hopefully, by that time the situation with Pepperstoch attack would be resolved and we’ll have a free hand to act.

    Wardens: if Mercantile Guild is in favour and there are no objections, we’ll make an offer to a neighbourhood under Wardens control to come under our protection, just as it happened with the Shipwrights. And as the Guild said…

    Pepperstoch: Sausage Guild determines our response, which I believe is currently investing [ESP] into finding the truth and protecting against new espionage attacks.

    Madame Beteoui sat down in her hall. The Dwimmercant representative had arrived not long ago.

    After the proper introduction, she asked him something directly.

    "We have had the most interesting proposal from Doctor Vassari. He wishes to colaborate and create a Watch, to better control crime around the neighbourhods. He would want that Watch to be... Let's say blind when regarding certain minor crimes."

    She paused.

    "He has proposed to make the nobles change their suppliers of... Recreational substances.

    You have always been a great trader and an honorable noble, and now you are one of the most respected Party Members. How would you feel about such a proposal?

    I believe it would be a good idea to keep the supplier the nobles always had, as long as he is a friend of us. Then, it would be better to have the Watch turn a blind eye about HIS actions, don't you think?

    By the way, you wouldn't know if the Nobles of the Old families use this substances, right?"

    While your proposal has some merit, I do not believe it is truly a practical one, if only because the editorial staff that manages the Standard must remain in Mewlings so as to keep in close contact with the rest of the Guild. Moving the entire production of the Standard to the factories district, therefore, would be unwise. However, using your press to create the Lower City's portion of the broadsheet is not a bad suggestion, and I believe at the very least a trial run is in order to determine how effective that might be.

It will certainly be good for business, either way."

    "As for methods of communication, there are as many as there are artificers. However, I should note that Verdan is a small island, and most of the people on it are either in Veras, the Ascension Monastery, or are natives who distrust technology. There is not, I fear, much understanding of the sort of distance which exists in the Shattered Lands and elsewhere. If you want something that can deliver messages to someone else in the city, quickly and efficiently, that can certainly be arranged; but elsewhere, I am afraid that a lack of a need for innovation in Veras has sadly left us lacking in some matters."

"And I greatly respect your coming to us before proceeding with such a plan. Undue change in such matters has a tendency to bring them to the attention of those who might otherwise have passed by in blissful ignorance. To use a metaphor that one of the Fisher houses as yourself might better understand, this is a boat that I do not feel is in particular need of rocking. And I must say, no watch, no matter what the good Doctor says, is going to do anything but turn a blind eye to certain things in Sky District." His smile did not quite reach beyond his mouth.

    That sounds like an excellent compromise, and we would be happy to accept your offer.

    I intend to use the dragon guns with three-man weapon crews. One man carries the gun, another the mount and a third the ammunition. If one man is killed, the ammo is split between the others. When a threat is detected, they set up the gun, with a loader, spotter and gunner, and open fire from behind the cover of friendly infantry. Would this work?

    Indeed we do. The Sausage Guild does not want to negotiate, they are making ridiculous demands. Therefore, the Wren and I have decided to pool our espionage (and, hopefully yours). We are sending 1 point of military to the Sausage guild as a first round of consolation. As part of that 1 point, we are also sending a good deal of double agents, so for that, we want to use as much espionage as possible.

    I say we should use as much as possible of the rest of our resources to prepare for war.

    Orc Uprising from Gregoria
    (Def.Esp.5)

    While most of the Orcs were toiling to make Tregon their new home, a considerable group of them was instead exploring the fabled city of Sav Altulas. Mostly they started conversing with local Orcs, finding out more how the life here is like and the various everyday rules, bussiness ettiquette and other things one would have to consider when living in a new and unknown society.

    During one of the walks Krien Roadhand grabbed one of those "Sav Altulas Standard" pamphlets everyone was reading. After a concentrated reading and a quick laugh he handed the pamphlet to his companion Dor.

    I don't know how much scouting I am actually allowed to do in this round beyond the bridge, but if I do get to scout, please tell me what I find out, assuming I only explore the Stacks and taking my negative trait into account. My Orcs are especially looking on how the city Orcs make their lives in the various neighbourhoods of Stacks and will probably converse with quite a few of them. I am also expecting to hear who has say in this area and how they are seen by the people, especially after the lecture of Sav Altulan politics by Ambrose.

    Also I don't know if it is warranted to post more info about my negative trait. It is something others would be aware of after all.

    Dear Doctor Morden Vassari.
    We have heared only good things about you, although no one told us you were a member of the Guilds too. We would first like to settle in a bit before we start buying and selling on such a scale. Having our own clinic outside of the city sounds interesting, but where would you find enough people that actually want to work with us back in Tregon?
    Don't be discouraged but give us some time.

    The houses in Tregon seem to be in quite a good shape, but we may take up your offer if we need more space.
    There are still some things we will have to discuss with the rulers of the city before pledging ourselves to it's defence. For now expect us to do what we can to keep us and the city safe.

    "We are ready to help your efforts and do our part in defending the city. Especially if you want to give us our own land.
    There are a few conditions, however. [Brigwa hands the Champion's representant the letter they recieved from the Wardens.] Tregon is declared autonomous and under permanent Orcish rule. Any adjacent farm and forest land can be freely used by us. Tributes will only be asked if we are also granted the freedom of conducting our own bussiness in the city and are officially accepted as equal citizen of Sav Altulas.
    I know that you may still not have the full authority for all this, so maybe we should also make sure that the council accepts all that. How about we visit it next month and you speak on our behalf? We would of course send our warriors with you as long as you accept our conditions."

    I don't know how much some of us are skilled in the finer arts, but each one of us knows how to work and is probably more enduring than any elf or human labourer. We have farmers, miners, hunters, lumberjacks, guards, fishermen, builders, water carriers and pretty much any other jobs that bring you the raw materials for goods.
    But could you tell us more about the Sovereign Guilds Association and it's inner workings? Also we heared that one of your members is the United Alliance of Labor. We have no idea though what exactly they do and if we will have to negotiate with them first about things concerning labor. We don't want to get into a debacle like the one with the presses I read about in the Standard.
    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Read his promises. He is willing to promise everything to everyone, and then not give anything to them when they have delivered. He promises a democracy, but one where he would rule supreme and the population would have nothing to say.
    On the other hand, some want to help the population to achieve what you orcs actually have. The strength to take their own freedom, and to regulate their own affairs. Is that not a noble goal?

    Excellent. I am glad to hear that you are not easily influenced by others, but prefer to make your own judgements. General Krodok, leader of the Revolutionary Army, will come by your town next month for talks, assuming the city doesn't burst into civil war before then. I would come myself, but pressing business in the city will likely keep my tied up here for some time.

    It’s a policy of Bloodhaven to turn away no one in need. You can make arrangements with the Education Board of the Daimot University to be accepted to the Medical Faculty, to obtain your own professionals. This will require tuition payment, but you’ll have your own doctors. I personally have certain sway with the Doctors of Sav Altulus and I believe, it would be possible to convince them to work with you.


    Candlelight Gala at Daimot University

    Lord Founder, Lord Wallen, Davan Eldermoss and Chrine Blizzardmarch are cordially invited to Candlight Gala at the Daimot University.

    This event is dedicated the Blackspell Watch and its generous supporters.

    It is such. When it is actually warranted. Of what I know King James still does not actually rule the city. So it may be early to decide to have him removed already. Shouldn't we first see if he is truly so oppresive as you suggest? In any case, we will keep your warnings in mind.

    I do not know if we can afford a full tuition or if any in our number are educated enough to become studied doctors. We would prefer something like an apprenticeship for some of our people to learn the basics of your arts and the underlying magics. Maybe we could negotiate a small field clinic to be opened here in the future with Orcs working under two or three of your doctors to both help and learn at the best of their ability. How much money would you ask for that?
