    Simple. I suggested the scheme which saw you take yourselves from Gregoria to Tregon, to the King. I consider the King a personal friend, but I also act in an advisory role when I am able.

    As for myself. I am not overly important in and of myself. Do you know of the killer Redeye? He was known throughout the continent as a madman and a murderer. If I have some small notoriety, it is in the slaying of Redeye.

    I hope I have not caused undue confusion.

    An excellent point. We will see to fortifying the Prison this month, provided the deal where we take control of it goes through. If anyone wishes to offer assistance, it would be appreciated. If the blackfists remain in control, it is their choice to fortify or not, though we will provide aid if they choose to.

    That is as much as we can wish for, of course. Hopefully you will be able to settle down without trouble.

    We have a long history with the Shattered Lands and know your kind to be hardy and, more importantly, reliable - a rare trait in these gods-forsaken lands. Our dream is to one day return civilization and order into the region, but there is no doubt that we are too weak to do it alone. We hope that we may count you as an ally or, at least, a friendly force in this task.

    There are several cooperative projects in the works at the moment. Among them, there is a plan to collect and publish a comprehensive official history of Sav Altuas and Talidor, which would be included in the university library.

    Lord Wallen has applied to study at the university (3 wel per turn for 3 turns in exchange for leveling up a VIP). He has met with approval so far.

    A warded meeting room was planned for construction, however it is not finished yet as there are other priorities for many of the university magi at this point.

    On the topic of Dr. Vassari's proposal, I believe this is a most worthwhile endeavor. However, I believe this must be undertaken with the utmost care. Desoui's magic is incredibly powerful, and I would not wish to lose mages to backlash from her enchantments.

    [OOC: I'd forgotten that the University Board was separate from the Board of Education. Sorry! I should probably keep university-specific discussion here in the future.]

    I'd like to put out a subtle call to see if there was any chance of getting my hands on some of those 'poisons with no known antidote', preferrably one that would not be curable by any sort of magic whatsoever, especially blood magic.

    In addition, I'd like to know if there was some way to use the Contacts traits without spending Wealth, which I don't have, and, for example, instead using Morale or Espionage or something to convince Jungle tribes to act in a manner benefiting me. I'd have a mission for a single-time use of 4-6 Mil of mercenaries with no ties to the City, but if it costs Wealth I can't get that done.

    I would like to correct, respected Chancellor, that while the History of Talidor and Sav Altulus would be included in the library, itís my sincere wish to publish it and bring to the people of Sav Altulus. Our history would be taught in the schools and discussed in parlors and coffeehouses of the city.

    The proposal of writing the History of the City has been met with aproval and emotion by us.

    We'll spend some time gathering documents, and transcripting the ones we can't give to the University (Some of these Documents are personal Family Relics; and many of my friends are Honor-bound not to give them away).

    We will send the documentation to you [Next turn].

    as one of the most influential factions in the Stocks, i would like to welcome you to the city. to answer your questions:

    the SGA is a collection of the various guilds of Sav Altulas all come together for mutual defense and joint projects. together, we comprise the largest concentration of wealth in the city and our combined military might combined is nothing to shabby.

    UAL is not technically a member of the SGA, though many of them work for me. they organize the work and labor-gangs of the city, drawing from refugees and the hard workers others have just thrown out on the street. decent group of people overall.

    if you are ever in need of work, contact us, i am sure we could arrange something for you.

    Indeed, I had meant that the act pf collecting this knowledge would enrich the library. As for publication, we will have to go through the bookbinder's guild, unless we want to upset their monopoly by printing magically, however it is within their power and rights to give us all manner of bad press should we do so.

    I will lead my men alongside yours in your next ecscursion in the shaterred lands. I trust that this help will be remembered. May the odds be in our favor.

    {OOC: I completely forgot to tell you. I hope this message prevents any akwardness that would otherwise have happened next turn. EoT is already sent and has contingiency in case you are not actually doing anything in the Shattered Lands. And yes, the spelling mistakes are on purpose. Be happy Dor writes as well as he does at all.}

    Ah, thank you for the unexpected assistance, Captain. Your help will be most welcome. Together we may deal a great blow to the rabble infesting the lands neighbouring us.

    ((OOC: Yeah, I've got a small operation to finalize my control over the mines that I drove the Stone Wolves from last turn. I was planning on handing some of them over to you for some Wealth, but if you help me take them then I guess it's pretty fair that you get your share for free. If the GM distributes the gains based on the military employed, then I'd like to note that since I've been working on this for a couple turns I'd like at least one Wealth. I currently have 3 and it's really hindering my use of foreign contacts.

    As for Zemalac, do note that I've now been informed of the Orc help and won't be surprised when they show up. Hopefully. ))

    ______________________________

    An assassination attempt has left Urso Bloodhand, head of the Sausage Guild, either dead or grievously wounded. The Guild has secreted his body in their tunnels and has of yet not revealed his current condition.

    Investigators from the Champions of Sovereignty and the Sausage Guild have been moving through Pepperstoch, inciting grumbling from the locals.

    Blackfist territories have been steadily barricades and armed over the past month. Rumors of electrical systems being laid in place are unconfirmed at this time.

    The Empty Blood Gang has been destroyed by the Church of Neposh and the Militia of Order and Justice, putting Annosus firmly into the hands of the Church.

    Select gentlemen from Silvathrien are investing in Pews, attempting to build factories outside of the Smokeyards.

    A Mercantile's Guild attempt to control the flow of Illarym trade to the city had less of an impact than expected due to the Wardens headquarters in Imperial First unnerving merchants who would otherwise have responded far better to the Guild's enticements.

    Doctor Vassari has hosted a gala in support of the Blackspell Watch, and secured donors to fund the Watch's expansion.

    A new report issued by Doctor Vassari of Bloodhaven has come to the conclusion that the electricity used in the Celestial Network of the Gearís Chosen is giving off harmful emissions, leading to an increased chance of illness and birth defects in those exposed to it. The amount of exposure that has currently occurred is not yet large enough to pose a threat, but the good Doctor is strongly recommending that the Network be shut down until it can be granted a health safety certification from Bloodhaven.

    Doctor Vassari has left the city on a trip to Burnelli, leaving Doctor Blaine in charge of the hospital.

    The Order of the Wren is recruiting soldiers.

    The Wardens have ordered the construction of a small river patrol fleet from the Shipwright's Guild, and have begun constructing fortifications that will let them control river traffic.

    An ambassador from Gregoria has arrived in the city.

    Lord Wallen is attending Daimot University, to further his own understanding of magic.

    An ESGE-backed effort to create a magically powered personal flying machine has seen limited success. In unrelated news, sightings of demons and angels flying through the sky have increased.

    The Ram Police are giving petty criminals the option to serve in the Revolutionary army for a period of time instead of being fined or jailed.

    The Technists Guild is building a massive sky dreadnaught.

    A combined Warden and orcish force has smashed the mine-lords in the hills to the southeast of the city, claiming the mines for the city.

    Greater SGA infrastructure has been constructed in Guild's Row.

    A team of Laheim trainers is beating the Clockwork Swords into shape.

    The Celestial Network has expanded to Old Jack's Run, Little Veras and the Tragic Court.

    A gala at the Opera House in Dogma is well attended by the city's elite.

    Orcs from Tregon are buying farming equipment in the city.

    Rumor has it that the Upside Circle has halted orcish logging operations in their forest.

    The Heladuit Court has relocated any and all undesirables from Tailorway, and turned the run-down tenements into upscale apartments.

    The Executive Breuacracy has expanded the law college at Daimot University.

    The Madman of Foth has been sighted near the city. Do not question the Madman of Foth.

    Due to the expansion of the Law College by the EBSA, degrees of control over the University Board have changed.

    Current degrees of control are as follows, from largest to smallest: ESGE with 57%, Bloodhaven with 20%, EBSA with 8%, Church of Neposh with 5%, House Wallen with 4%, Sausage Guild with 4%, and Champions of Sovereignty with 2%. This means that the ESGE controls 7 of the Universityís MAG, Bloodhaven controls 2, the EBSA controls 1, the Church of Neposh controls 1, and House Wallan and the Sausage Guild between them control 1.

    The Torch of Sav Altulas: Lighting a Fire in the Heart of the Righteous

    What the Hell, James? So-called King shows his true colours

    By request of our friends in the Sausage Guild, the Blackfist has sent investigators to Pepperstoch, to find out who was behind the riots our enemies have accused us of starting.
    They did not find any clues. They found their deaths. These innocent men and women, whose names shall live on as those of martrys, were murdered in cold blood by agents of the Champions. Clearly, the boy James has something to hide in Pepperstoch, and he is not afraid to have people killed to hide it.
    "You raise your baton. The glass kettle drums pound out the the overture. Your vision clouds with blood. You wipe it away and continue. The xylophonist's hair bursts into a violet flame, but he continues playing. He's either a consummate professional or very drunk indeed..."

    Greetings. If I may ask, why did you not request our assistance in your studies of the Celestial Network? If you had informed us ahead of time we would have been happy to provide you access to the core of the Network itself to gain more accurate readings. As of now, we would like to request that you rescind the report until something more through can be completed.

    We warned you that your agents were unwelcome in our territory. You sent them in anyway. Unless you pay us reparations of 3 t. Wealth and cease sending in any more of your men, we will be forced to take punitive action in measure with the severity of your transgressions.
