Ivastaen 26-27, 5118

by Leafiara Autumnwind of the TownCrier


Summary

  • Thadston announces that as of the night he's become a citizen of the Landing. He says he still has some clout at the Hendoran outpost, but it's in Breshon's care. He hopes to speak with Magister Raelee in coming days regarding the Kestrels.
  • Afterward, a town clerk arrives with news--originally intended to be delivered by Councilwoman Alendrial, but the clerk reports her as suddenly ill. The announcement is of the four candidates for temporary replacement for Thrayzar as militia marshal: Casiphia, Kilron, Khylon, and Thadston. There will be a debate between them, expected to be brief and expected to be on the following Eve of the Huntress.


[Note: There was quite a bit of confusion over how exactly the nominees were chosen, some of it from characters and perhaps some of it from players. Going by the fact that Thadston claimed to throw his own name in the mix for consideration, and that Lylia, Shinann, and Stormyrain were all surprised by the names, it seems to me that the candidates nominated themselves.]



Log

Speaking With Thadston

Thadston [Local]: "I'll be to our town shortly."

Speaking to Pukk, Goldstr says, "Sir Thadston Andrews."

Speaking quietly to Goldstr, Pukk says, "Oh."

Stormyrain [Local]: "--our? town?"

Chamorr heartily asks, "Our town?"

Stormyrain [Local]: "Have you decided to become a citizen then, Sir Andrews?"

Cruxophim [Local]: "Is there another town around here?"

Pukk quietly says, "He is going to take over the town."

Pukk gasps.

Lylia [Local]: "Always welcome, of course. We are in front of Moot Hall, avoiding the worst of the weather."

Bernadette softly says, "He be local tinkin."

Danthius says, "No one takes over our town..."

Evician [Local]: "Well there is that small town to the south with the kobolds."

Pukk [Local]: "Just stand next to Sir Shiny, he keeps most of the rain off me!"

Speaking to Pukk, Ysharra says, "Unlikely. He seems more the type to burn it down."

Suprie says, "Well, not for too long anyways."

Rioja exclaims, "There will be an army of bebbehs to resist!"

Cruxophim amusedly inquires, "Do we get to fight him?"

Speaking quietly to Ysharra, Pukk exclaims, "We can have roasted food then!"

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "Besides. You can take him."

Rioja exclaims, "We'll whine 'em out of town!"

Lylia says, "I am certain it would not be necessary."

Speaking quietly to Ysharra, Pukk says, "I saw the mayor in action."

Speaking quietly to Ysharra, Pukk says, "It was pretty amazing."

Speaking to Dodeka, Rokja says, "I think half my body would be exposed behind you."

Speaking to Pukk, Ysharra says, "She is a force of nature."

Speaking amusedly to Lylia, Cruxophim reports, "By the way, some loon tried to murder me the other day."

Rioja exclaims, "I'm hungry!!"

Speaking to Pukk, Lylia says, "You flatter me. Of course, you are also correct."

Speaking wryly to Lylia, Cruxophim clarifies, "Not Happy."

Goldstr says, "Thadston was leanin mer toward da Landin even when he ran da Outpost. I expect he become a citizen some day."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk says, "Ysharra said you are full of a bunch of air like a force of nature."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Lylia asks, "Really? Do you know this Zelia-worshipper's name?"

Lylia says, "If you mean tempests and maelstroms, yes."

Speaking to Goldstr, Ysharra says, "That's interesting."

Speaking helpfully to Lylia, Cruxophim adds, "In a teacup."

Speaking to Goldstr, Lylia says, "And he is more than welcome here. I am sure, of course, that North Hendor --"

Lylia clears her throat.

Speaking to Goldstr, Ysharra says, "Perhaps we should invite him to play darts next month."

Lylia corrects, "That Hendor would miss him too."

Speaking quietly to Hlendril, Pukk says, "Now remember, don't try to swing at Thandston."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "So many Hendors."

Speaking thoughtfully to Ysharra, Cruxophim muses, "A murder of Hendors?"

Speaking quietly to Cruxophim, Pukk says, "A pod of Hendors."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra says, "Ask the Rooks."

Evician says, "A gaggle."

Chamorr heartily says, "A hail of hendors."

Lylia firmly says, "If anyone swings at him, I am sure he can take care of himself."

Cruxophim amusedly offers, "A clutch?"

Speaking deeply to Cruxophim, Ferrumus asks, "Are you alright though? Anything since then?"

Ysharra says, "...the villainy of Rooks that is."

Lylia says, "And if he does not, for whatever reason, I shall see to it personally."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Oooh I like Chamorr's!"

Speaking to Shinann, Stormyrain murmurs, "I'm going to need a drink. I can tell. Pardon."

Speaking gently to Ferrumus, Cruxophim assures, "Oh, I'm fine. It was... an ill-advised assault."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra asks, "Who was it?"

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra says, "What'd they try? I'm keeping notes."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "Hopefully you have a plan."

Ferrumus deeply says, "A dangerous misunderstanding of sorts...."

Speaking dismissively to Ysharra, Cruxophim remarks, "Some Y-something or other name."

Speaking quietly to Draccor, Pukk says, "She will blast him, that will be that."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra exclaims, "I'm a Y-something name!"

Speaking darkly to Pukk, Draccor says, "You mean I'm here to take care of her heavy work."

Lord Thadston just arrived.

Speaking gently to Ysharra, Cruxophim suggests, "Need to step up your game, then."

Speaking to Draccor, Lylia says, "I always have a plan."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra says, "I bet I've killed you way more than this other Y person."

Cryheart says, "Good evening."

Thadston asks, "Does this town ever sleep?"

Speaking to Thadston, Lylia says, "A pleasure, as ever."

Speaking heartily to Thadston, Chamorr says, "Howdy."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "I have not seen any plan in action yet."

Lylia simply says, "No."

Cryheart says, "Apparently not."

Speaking to Thadston, Maylan says, "Sleep is for the town guards."

Speaking to Thadston, Goldstr says, "Hail Sir."

Ferrumus deeply asks, "What is this..."sleep"?"

Suprie says, "Sleep isn't what we do."

Speaking quietly to Thadston, Pukk says, "No, the thunder kept us up."

Speaking to Draccor, Lylia asks, "What is it you feel I should be planning, hm? Faendryl domination?"

Speaking to Thadston, Ysharra says, "We wait for hours to greet visitors. Just look at all the scuffmarks at the gate and on the docks."

Cryheart says, "Glad to see ye are back."

Speaking pleasantly to Thadston, Cruxophim greets, "How's things?"

Lylia assures, "There are always plans, though whether they are visible is another matter."

Speaking to Melikor, Ysharra says, "And you think we have people for that."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "I have nothing against those kind."

Thadston says, "Well enough."

Raelee suddenly fades into view.

Speaking to Thadston, Goldstr asks, "Did ye get yer info on da Bleaklands?"

Cryheart says, "Hello Magister Raelee."

Speaking to Ysharra, Melikor says, "I suppose that's us then."

Thadston says, "No. I intend to soon."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "I just want to know that you are focused at the task in hand, and it's Dhe'nar I tend to dislike."

Speaking to Thadston, you greet, "Sir Thadston... Sir Mires gives his regards, from Vornavis."

Thadston says, "We've settled finally. It's taken...some time."

Thadston says, "I am sure some of you will be overjoyed with the irony..."

Lylia smoothly replies, "You would then need to tell me what the task at hand is, sometime."

Speaking calmly to Thadston, Cruxophim admits, "I imagine it would."

Thadston says, "That today I became a citizen of Wehnimer's Landing."

Cryheart says, "Congrats."

Speaking to Thadston, Lylia says, "Wonderful news."

Ushakaron says, "Hmm interesting."

Speaking in Faendryl, Lylia says something you don't understand.

Lylia smiles quietly to herself.

Thadston grins at Lylia.

Suprie says, "Now ya have ta give up sleepin too."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "You are the mayor, I'm here to help you."

Speaking heartily to Thadston, Chamorr says, "Howdy neighbor."

Beldannon softly says, "He must have heard about that merchant going around to citizens of towns improving their weapons wanted to be a citizen."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Evician says, "Next thing you know, he'll be a knight."

Bernadette softly says, "Congrats to ye then, Sir Andrews."

Cryheart says, "Therefore, welcome back."

Lylia says, "You would be far from the first to find this a more congenial home than many."

Thadston says, "I've still some clout at the Outpost, but it will do good in Lord Breshon's care."

Draccor darkly says, "By the looks of it tho, we have some powerful hitters that can make a move and destroy some invaders."

Thadston says, "My new home will be in the..."

Thadston rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Thadston asks, "Dragonsclaw, is that its name?"

You curiously ask, "So he's no longer to be interim commander, but more permanent?"

Thadston shrugs.

Speaking to Thadston, Goldstr says, "Goods ta hear."

Thadston says, "Casi picked it for me."

Speaking to Thadston, Evician says, "Did you by chance see the Prelate, apparently the Deacon is looking for him...."

Speaking to Pukk, Hlendril asks, "Who's Thadston?"

Speaking to Thadston, Ysharra asks, "Which part of it?"

Speaking to you, Lylia asks, "I beg your pardon?"

Speaking to Thadston, Maylan asks, "Are you building a little cottage?"

Speaking quietly to Thadston, Pukk says, "I heard Icemule would be a good home too."

Ulkov says, "Didn't take you for the high rise type."

Speaking to Lylia, you clarify, "Breshon, that is."

Thadston says, "Some inn here."

Cruxophim affably explains, "Breshon."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "If you want I'll be the new constable of the landing."

Thadston points east.

Maylan says, "Ah."

Thadston says, "It's that way."

Ysharra says, "Oh, I see."

Krayjoink says, "Constables only get in tha way."

Thadston says, "Dragon something. It'll do for now."

Thadston glances at Raelee.

Cruxophim amusedly inquires, "The Dragonsclaw?"

Thadston says, "Magister, in the coming days, we need to speak."

Thadston nods at Raelee.

Speaking to Draccor, Krayjoink says, "Justice."

Speaking slowly to Thadston, Raelee says, "... I expect so."

Pukk quietly asks, "Abandoned Inn?"

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra asks, "Isn't that...?"

Speaking darkly to Krayjoink, Draccor asks, "So I'm not all about justice?"

Thadston says, "We need to talk Kestrels."

Thadston nods at Raelee.

Speaking to Draccor, Krayjoink says, "I've no idea."

Speaking to Draccor, Krayjoink says, "Never met an honest constable, that's all I'm sayin'."

Speaking evenly to Thadston, Raelee says, "I know. I cannot imagine you would wish to speak to me regarding much else."

Speaking heartily to Thadston, Chamorr says, "So, when ya runnin fer mayor."

Speaking to Thadston, Hlendril asks, "Who are you?"

Speaking disgustedly to herself, Maylan says, "Kestrels."

Thadston asks, "Thadston. Who the hell are you?"

Thadston peers quizzically at Hlendril.

Speaking to Thadston, Kipara says, "Only you can answer that question."

Speaking dryly to Chamorr, Lylia teases, "Perhaps in ten months or so, you may question him about questions."

Speaking to Thadston, Hlendril says, "Hlendril Fireheart of Honneland. Third born of Gwendolynn Firehear, husband of Sylvania Monnes."

Hlendril shakes Thadston's hand enthusiastically.

Thadston says, "Well met Honnelander."

Speaking to Thadston, Hlendril says, "I'm a Mercenary, and my blood boils with a thousand yeas of mercanary history."

A snow white raven rolls over and streaks towards the ground, leveling off at the last second to glide just a few feet above the ground!

Speaking darkly to Thadston, Hlendril says, "And I'm not fond of the Empire."

Speaking quietly to Thadston, Pukk says, "He also likes Iron Lions and small gnomes."

Speaking to a snow white raven, Ysharra says, "I noticed."

Maylan says, "I hear that boiling blood is rather fatal."

Speaking to Pukk, Hlendril says, "We do have gnomes serving in the Band."

Evician says, "Can be Maylan."

Speaking wryly to Thadston, Cruxophim assures, "He's really not. Or anyone who hovers into his field of vision." [note: was originally written as "hoves" and could have been either "hovers" or "moves"]

Speaking heartily to Thadston, Chamorr says, "And quiet walks in da park."

Thadston says, "I also understand...your council is making an announcement tonight."

Speaking softly to Hlendril, Beldannon says, "Sir Thadston has more things to worry about whether you like the empire or not."

Thadston says, "Our council, as it is now I suppose."

Speaking darkly to Thadston, Draccor says, "I'll take you for a quiet walk in the park."

Roelaren asks, "They are?"

Speaking to Chaoswynd, Stormyrain mouths, "More brandy."

Thadston says, "Regarding a potential replacement for Thrayzar, even if temporary."

Speaking casually to Thadston, Cruxophim inquires, "Oh?"

Lylia firmly says, "Almost certainly temporary."

Evician says, "Oh here we go."

Maylan asks, "Have we heard no word of Thrayzar at all?"

Thadston says, "They are likely delayed, because I added to their woes."

Beldannon softly says, "It's an announcement about real gambling coming to the Landing I bet."

Suprie says, "Ya don't seem like a woe."

Thadston says, "I've thrown my name into the mix for consideration."

Suprie says, "Spoke too soon."

Speaking to herself, Stormyrain mutters, "Of course you have."

Cruxophim amusedly remarks, "We're still expecting some sappers... any day now."

Pukk whispers something to Lylia.

Goldstr pokes Lylia in the ribs.

Speaking to Thadston, Hlendril says, "I HOPE you aren't what I think of ye."

Pukk whispers something to Lylia.

Meureii whispers something to Lylia.

Thadston peers quizzically at Hlendril.

Thadston says, "What."

Evia asks, "So anyone here can also throw a name in the hat? Yes?"

Speaking to Thadston, Hlendril says, "An Imperial."

Lylia dryly says, "The next person to poke me may draw back a stump."

Beldannon softly says, "Thadston so far has been good people."

Speaking devilishly to Hlendril, Cruxophim remarks, "He's Imperial, aye."

Thadston says, "Hlendril, YOU'RE an imperial."

Thadston says, "From HONNELAND."

Ysharra says, "I would assume some sort of experience in a militia or armed service would help."

Speaking to Evia, Goldstr says, "Sir Bristenn in Haven fer now."

You amusedly acknowledge, "He does have a point."

Speaking to Hlendril, Kipara says, "You have a rather active imagination. I would assume most things are not what you think they are."

Lylia snaps, "And the next person who wishes to tell me what to do may do so openly instead of hissing in my ear."

Evician exclaims, "QUICK go kill yourself!"

Cruxophim cheerfully says, "Evic."

Speaking quietly to Hlendril, Pukk accuses, "I knew it."

Thadston says, "And I'm not a fan of the Empire much right now either."

Thadston says, "So, you hang yourself first. I'll go next."

Thadston asks, "Deal?"

Speaking loudly to Lylia, Maylan says, "He'd make a fine marshall, he would."

Thadston smirks.

Thadston winks at Hlendril.

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "I'm here to protect the Landing."

Speaking amusedly to Hlendril, Cruxophim speculates, "Must be a terrible amount of self-loathing there."

Evia says, "Hmm my head is splitting."

Wolfloner darkly says, "Sounds fair."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Two for one!"

Speaking to Thadston, Ysharra says, "Suddenly, I like you more than the golem."

Wolfloner darkly says, "Quick."

Thadston says, "Or just settle down."

Thadston nods at Hlendril.

Speaking softly to Lylia, Beldannon says, "I would like you to bring Let it Ride to the Landing."

Speaking to Draccor, Lylia replies, "I appreciate that. As do we all."

Speaking bemusedly to Ysharra, Cruxophim ventures, "Suddenly?"

Speaking to himself, Hlendril says, "Must... Resist.. Outburst..."

Thadston says, "This town only has enough room for one uptight Puptilian."

Thadston smirks.

Speaking to Beldannon, Lylia says, "Consider it considered."

Speaking darkly to Thadston, Draccor says, "You do not impress me."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra says, "Oh yes. I love black humor."

Speaking to Thadston, Lylia says, "Yes, well, about that."

A snow white raven suddenly releases an ear-piercing shriek!

Evician says, "Draccor, no one impresses you."

Speaking to a snow white raven, Ysharra says, "Not what I meant."

Maylan says, "I've seen Thadston beat a man with his own arms. That's enough to impress me."

Speaking to Evician, Rioja says, "I do."

Speaking in Faendryl, Lylia says something you don't understand.

Lylia nods at Thadston.

Speaking to Draccor, Rioja exclaims, "With this!"

Chamorr heartily says, "Two dark elves walk into a bar."

Speaking to Meureii, Kipara says, "Good to see you, friend."

Draccor darkly says, "I'm not impressed."

Speaking to Kipara, Meureii says, "Likewise."

Speaking formally to Thadston, Hlendril says, "Look, I may be not fond with ye... But I am willing to assist... I'm willing to throw away any anti-imperial sentiment, for the night at least."

Speaking to Draccor, Rioja says, "You say that."

Zosopage says, "Somehow I don't think he is trying to impress you."

A town crier shouts, "The Town Council will be making a brief announcement outside of Moot Hall shortly."

You idly comment, "Convenient."

Speaking amusedly to Hlendril, Cruxophim admits, "Impressive."

Evia says, "Yay."

Pukk quietly says, "Figures they would ruin this fun."

Evician says, "Don't need a Seer to know what's coming..."

Speaking to Thadston, Ysharra says, "Hear that? Your visit is timely, new citizen."

Evia says, "Such as they are."

Suprie says, "First time I've been thankful for the council..."

Draccor darkly asks, "Why should I be?"

Speaking weakly to Cruxophim, Hlendril says, "Trying to discipline myself."

Speaking darkly to Thadston, Draccor says, "I mean no disrespect but I'm not."

Thadston shrugs at Draccor.

Speaking curiously to Thadston, Meureii asks, "How are your recent troubles faring?"

Thadston glances at Meureii.

Speaking quietly to Thadston, Pukk says, "I am the local new citizen debt collector. If you are to join our fair and wonderful town, I need to collect two million silvers."

Speaking idly to Draccor, Cruxophim muses, "Why would you feel the need to tell him that?"

Thadston smirks at Pukk.

Evia asks, "Pylasar has been absent also, are we replacing him too?"

Speaking amusedly to Pukk, Cruxophim teases, "Who are you, Nehor?"

Speaking darkly to Cruxophim, Draccor asks, "I mean no disrespect?"

Speaking to Pukk, Ysharra says, "You need to work on your pitches."

Speaking to Pukk, Evician says, "He left them at the bottom of the well Pukk."

Speaking to Evia, Maylan says, "I hope it's a temporary assignment."

Thadston says, "Goodnight to you all. I've some things to see to."

Speaking diplomatically to Draccor, Cruxophim muses, "You could just not say it."

Speaking to Evia, Maylan says, "An Interim Marshall, perhaps."

Evician says, "Good night Thadston."

Speaking quietly to Thadston, Meureii says, "Noted."

Speaking to Thadston, Ysharra says, "Welcome home."

Cryheart says, "Rest well."

Speaking darkly to Thadston, Wolfloner asks, "You want to renounce the Empire and become a citizen of the Landing?"

Speaking quietly to Thadston, Pukk says, "For you good sir, because you look so handsome and whatnot. I can give you a friend discount of one and half million silvers."

Bernadette softly says, "Have a good nite."

Speaking to Thadston, Lylia says, "Rest well."

Speaking darkly to Cruxophim, Draccor says, "I'm not worried about it."

Speaking to Thadston, Maylan says, "Sweet dreams to you, sir."

Speaking to Wolfloner, you say, "He already did, apparently. Or at least the second part."

Evia says, "No one much has to renounce a damn thing to be a citizen here."

Speaking to Lylia, Goldstr exclaims, "Madam Mayor I hopes ye back Sir Andrews fer Marshall!"

Speaking darkly to Cruxophim, Draccor says, "You know me."

Thadston ruffles Hlendril's shaggy red hair, bopping the single braid like a cat swatting a toy.

Thadston says, "Thanks for tolerating my imperial blood tonight..."

Thadston smirks at Hlendril.

Thadston shakes his head.

Hlendril blushes a light pink shade at Thadston.

Speaking to Goldstr, Lylia says, "Thank you for speaking openly."

Lord Thadston just went north.


Idle Chatter: Awaiting the Council

Speaking to Evia, Ysharra says, "That would make more sense. The Landing and the Empire aren't enemies."

Evician says, "Someone give Hlendril a treat already."

Pukk yells, "Come back! One million silvers!"

Speaking to himself, Hlendril nastily growls, "Resist..."

Pukk yells, "Last chance!"

Draccor darkly says, "Damn he left."

Pukk quietly says, "Never works."

Draccor darkly says, "I was going to be even more offensive."

Evia says, "All one must renounce is a full night's sleep."

Speaking sympathetically to Pukk, you say, "If it makes you feel any better, I'm still waiting on splitting the bounty for helping capture Rone."

Draccor darkly says, "Really I wasn't tho."

Speaking quietly to you, Pukk exclaims, "You're right!"

Draccor darkly says, "I just said what a lot of you wanted to."

Speaking quietly to you, Pukk asks, "Do I get a cut of that?"

Speaking idly to Pukk, you reply, "Actually, I have no idea. But any split would be better than none."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Crime says, "You need a sheriff."

Shinann says, "I think the bounty should go to any victim's family if found and the rest to Shanty Town... but that is not my decision."

Pukk quietly says, "I have a bad feeling all of a sudden."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "I should be the sheriff."

Lylia noncommittally says, "Perhaps."

Pukk quietly says, "Oh wait."

Goldstr says, "Gonna grab Laura."

Pukk belches.

Pukk quietly says, "Okay, all better."

Goldstr just went north.

Maylan says, "Thadston is tried and true. He's the obvious choice for Marshall."

Zosopage says, "Sheriffs tend to get shot...."

Lylia coolly says, "Or perhaps I shall declare a ban on certain terms. 'Should.' 'Ought.' 'Must.'."

Maylan says, "That's what I say."

Shinann says, "We have a Marshal."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "All the other mayors wanted to make me the constable."

Speaking curiously to Maylan, Meureii asks, "Or does his current condition and personal vendetta suggest otherwise?"

Speaking wryly to Shinann, Cruxophim ventures, "Do we?"

Speaking to Lylia, Evician asks, "What about maybe?"

Pukk points at Meureii.

Speaking idly to Maylan, you say, "We don't even know who the other candidates are, but I'm inclined to agree."

Shinann says, "Yes."

Lylia says, "These words, in Common, clearly mean something quite different."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "It's like you're not the currently elected mayor or something."

Pukk quietly says, "He is a marshall." [in reference to Meureii being the Marshal of Helden Hall]

Shinann says, "Just not here right now."

Wolfloner darkly asks, "Was it not Thadston's leadership that caused the Outpost to be cast into the lands of the Ithzir?"

Speaking darkly to Wolfloner, Draccor asks, "Did I overstep?"

Speaking to Shinann, Maylan concedes, "Just until Thrayzar returns, of course."

Wolfloner darkly asks, "Should we allow him to be Marshalll?"

Speaking to Lylia, Kipara says, "You should oughtta must make a new position of Grand Pugilist. I know just the candidate."

Gamiron says, "If I was constable... I would just let everyone fight to death in the streets while I skimmed tax money for grog and women of the night."

Speaking to Draccor, Vallet says, "I think you would make a fine marshall."

Wolfloner darkly says, "Seems we both have."

Cruxophim affably states, "Right back."

Speaking to Wolfloner, Lylia asks, "In what way would Thadston have been responsible for the Ithzir and their removal of the outpost?"

Balley softly says, "I still think someone or something bigger is here pulling the strings."

Cryheart asks, "When are ye making an announcement rgarding Thrayzar?"

Speaking perplexedly to Balley, you ask, "The strings of... what? Who?"

Speaking quietly to Balley, Pukk says, "Cryheart...it is him."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maylan asks, "Is there news?"

Balley softly says, "That is the question."

Evia says, "She isn't, the Council...such as it is, is, I thought."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Or maybe Hlendril...the imp!"

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Wolfloner says, "He allowed Glethed to reside in the Outpost after being warned not to."

Evician asks, "Maybe it was a secret vote?"

Balley softly says, "Something feels not right."

Lylia says, "This is for the Town Council to do; I have not announced anything because Thrayzar's role is not under my direct purview."

Balley softly says, "Not sure what just feels not right."

Speaking heartily to Pukk, Chamorr says, "Indeed, knew it all along, Cryheart is pullin da strings."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Wolfloner says, "That led to the near ruin of all his command."

Speaking to Wolfloner, Ysharra asks, "Glethed?"

Evia says, "All two of them."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Wolfloner says, "That is not in dispute."

Cryheart says, "I dinnae get involved with politics."

Ysharra says, "Wouldn't it be up to the militia captains? I admit I don't know the chain of command, I guess."

Lylia says, "Precisely so, and precisely why I have not made any unnecessary pronouncements."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "No matter what happens the citizens of the Landing will fight to protect it."

Speaking wearily to Ysharra, Stormyrain says, "We get no vote, clearly."

Speaking to Wolfloner, Shinann asks, "So, you were upset when the Outpost went to the Ithizir plane?"

Speaking idly to Draccor, you echo, "No matter what happens..."

You simply say, "Hm."

Speaking to Draccor, Lylia says, "Absolutely. I said as much earlier -- that the people, not our walls, are our strength."

Shinann says, "Because you seem upset."

Speaking darkly to you, Draccor asks, "Would we let something destroy our home?"

Speaking to Stormyrain, Ysharra says, "I remember having a similar role in my own outfit, once upon a time."

Speaking darkly to Shinann, Wolfloner asks, "Not at all. But should we allow him to do the same thing to the Landing?"

Speaking to Draccor, Maylan says, "Well, often...but we always rebuild."

Speaking to Cryheart, Goldstr says, "She good now."

Speaking thoughtfully to Draccor, you say, "No, but I was just thinking about it. You're probably right."

Speaking to Draccor, Maylan says, "And I say that's what really matters."

Cryheart says, "Excellent."


Candidates for Interim Marshal

A town clerk arrives.

Speaking darkly to Maylan, Draccor says, "Rebuild yes, but I'd hate for it to come to that."

Roelaren says, "Town clerk."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk asks, "So are you saying that you would throw innocent towns folk in front of an invading force to protect the town?"

Speaking to Danthius, Rioja exclaims, "For folks!"

Evia exclaims, "Shhh!"

Speaking to Pukk, Lylia says, "No."

Speaking to Evia, Maylan says, "That's some mighty good shushing, Miss Evia."

Cryheart says, "Good to see ye alive and well."

Lauranathalasa says, "I think the gods wanted me here and not hunting."

Speaking helpfully to Lylia, Cruxophim jests, "I can, if you need."

Gamiron says, "Yeah don't throw innocents... use a catapult.... much more effective."

Cryheart says, "That is apparent."

A town clerk says, "I am sorry..." The clerk looks over some notes in his hand, "Councilwoman Alendrial was set to come, but she is suddenly ill, and needed to retire early for the night."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Lylia says, "I shall keep that in mind."

You concernedly say, "I hope it's nothing too serious."

Suprie says, "Must be the weather."

Cryheart says, "Give our regards."

Pukk quietly says, "Figures..that council woman."

Pukk quietly says, "What do we pay her for.."

Speaking darkly to Cryheart, Wolfloner asks, "You want Thadston to be Marshall?"

Bernadette softly says, "Hope she feels better soon."

Katze says, "She's a dead woman."

Hlendril says, "Political rivalry perhaps."

Pukk quietly asks, "No really, what do we pay her for?"

Hlendril says, "Maybe poisoned."

Danthius says, "Now, now...."

Evia says, "Sprained her back in a late night...meeting."

Cryheart says, "That is nae my decision."

Speaking darkly to Cryheart, Wolfloner says, "So be it."

Cruxophim calmly assures, "I'm sure she's fine."

Lylia says, "Speculation is beneath us, surely. We wish for her continued good health."

Kipara says, "I wouldn't be surprised if she was poisoned like the one that warned us of the ship's cargo."

Zosopage says, "Too much to drink."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "You would think."

Maylan says, "Bad herbs, most likely. Healing with herbs is dangerous."

A town clerk says, "She was set to make this announcement, but, I suppose it is up to me now."

Balley softly says, "I hope she want not poisoned."

Evician says, "Well let their decree be known."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "Maybe it's my perspective, up here. But the difference can often be hard to see."

A town clerk says, "With the news of Thrayzar missing, and possibly dead, but we hope not, we must consider a replacement for his position, even if temporary."

Speaking quietly to a town clerk, Pukk says, "Go ahead and say it...I have been promoted to town debt collector."

Roelaren says, "Of course."

Lylia firmly says, "Missing. And the appointment is no doubt an interim one."

Speaking affably to a town clerk, Cruxophim jests, "I volunteer."

Draccor darkly says, "I will volunteer for that position."

A town clerk says, "The Town Council has accepted three nominations for Mayor Lylia's consideration for interim Steward of the Militia, acting as the new Marshal."

Speaking heartily to a town clerk, Chamorr says, "I volunteer Pukk."

Pukk quietly says, "No."

Speaking softly to Chamorr, Beldannon says, "Heck no."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "I'm not good with rules!"

Pukk flails his arms about.

A town clerk says, "I...oh." The clerk looks down at his scroll, "Four nominations."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Crime says, "Perhaps I should step in."

Speaking darkly to a town clerk, Draccor says, "I nominate myself."

A town clerk says, "...hah!'

Evia asks, "Err from whence did three nominations come?"

A town clerk says, "Lady Alendrial is fine..." He chuckles at the scroll and shakes his head.

Lylia asks, "Do I seem as though I need someone to 'step in'?"

Hlendril nonchalantly asks, "What are the chances of someone nominating a bastard like me?"

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "Now is yer chance to let me proove myself to this town."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Lylia asks, "Did so many people offer to step in on your behalf, my dear?"

Speaking flirtatiously to a town clerk, Cruxophim jests, "I'll say."

Speaking amusedly to Lylia, Cruxophim soothes, "All the time."

Evician says, "Ahh clerks making jokes, someone's gonna die tonight."

Lylia says, "Mm. Then perhaps I shall simply have to get used to it."

Speaking suspiciously to a town clerk, Hlendril asks, "Why the cough? Hiding something?"

A town clerk says, "The choices for Steward of the Militia are: Khylon, who is current acting captain of the Town Guard, Lady Casiphia, Kilron....and Thadston."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "There's never a lack for people to tell you what to do. Or at least try to."

Speaking curiously to a town clerk, Cruxophim asks, "Is Khylon fit for duty?"

A town clerk says, "Who is?"

Ysharra asks, "What's Kilron's experience at this?"

Wolfloner darkly says, "No wonder Alendrial is ill."

You curiously ask, "Will there be a debate like the last town council appointment, or no since this is only an interim position?"

A town clerk says, "I suspect one night of brief debates, even though interim."

Stormyrain incredulously asks, "Casiphia?"

Speaking skeptically to a town clerk, Cruxophim ventures, "Wasn't Khylon brutalized by the Rooks? He has recovered, I presume, both physically and mentally?"

Speaking heartily to Cruxophim, Chamorr says, "He was the marshal first."

Speaking darkly to a town clerk, Draccor says, "I'm fit for duty."

Cryheart says, "Odd choice."

A town clerk says, "I do not know his well being. I am an underpaid clerk."

Goldstr says, "I loke Cassie a lot but Thadston gots da experience."

Stormyrain asks, "--the same lass that could not even manage her own damned safety? You wish her to ...try to lead our Militia?"

Beldannon softly says, "Thadston works for me."

Speaking gently to Chamorr, Cruxophim reminds, "I know. That was before being tortured."

Pukk quietly says, "It's okay, we understand."

Lylia says, "Thank you. I trust there will be ample time to listen to the debates in public, and to confer with each of them."

Cryheart says, "Ye should ask for more pay."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk exclaims, "You need to give him a raise!"

Kipara asks, "Who will put forth the nominations? Are they self cast, or by suggestion?"

Bernadette softly says, "Aye we has two that stand here are better fit."

Speaking calmly to Kipara, Cruxophim explains, "The Town Council chooses nominees."

Speaking to Kipara, you reply, "Those were the nominations."

Speaking jokingly to a town clerk, Hlendril says, "Maybe Lylia should focus on raising the minimum wage. Seven and a Half silvers an hour just doesn't cut it."

A town clerk says, "The debates will likely take place next Night of the Huntress."

(Evician mutters, "Now selling instruments, so we can watch our town burn.")

Speaking to Pukk, Ysharra says, "Pukk, might ease off on the words "need and should" for a bit."

Gamiron says, "I dunno... I suspect the clerk is doing fine.... every new person that shows up to town instantly owes him like 600 silver pieces... I think it's a scam."

Speaking quietly to Ysharra, Pukk says, "The poor clerk is underpaid."

Maylan says, "I do love a good debate."

Speaking amusedly to Lylia, Cruxophim protests, "Weren't me!" [in reference to someone invisible pinching and/or biting Lylia, and some attempts to figure out who, which as usual have mostly been cut out along with 99% of other non-verbal interaction]

Draccor darkly says, "I'm the best marshal."

Speaking to Pukk, Ysharra says, "I don't disagree. The last underpaid clerk got his hands cut off and killed."

Cruxophim calmly advises, "Whomever is biting the Mayor had best start running now."

Evia says, "It seems odd to have a debate for a fundamentally martial position, but ah well."

Speaking to Ysharra, Evician says, "You forgot disemboweled as well."

Speaking quietly to Raelee, Pukk exclaims, "Better run Rae!"

Speaking to Pukk, Ysharra says, "But I notice that people have been telling Lylia what she should or needs to do since the thunder started up."

A town clerk says, "It will be brief, of course. I do not imagine a robust debate on a wide range of topics."

Ysharra says, "And I think we all might think about how that would sound."

Speaking to a town clerk, Lylia says, "Perhaps you and the Town Council could arrange a meeting with my Captains of the Guard, my advisors, and I with the candidates. Failing that, I shall have mail for you."

Speaking quietly to Ysharra, Pukk says, "Yes, but they aren't me...I'm cuter."

Lylia adds, "A great deal of mail."

A town clerk says, "I do not think anyone cares about their skills in economics!"

Lylia says, "Buried in it."

Speaking to a town clerk, Stormyrain says, "Actually, that is quite important."

Ysharra says, "You'd lose that bet."

Speaking to a town clerk, Lylia says, "See that you arrange such a meeting."

Crime quietly says, "The more taxes collected the more the corruption."

Speaking to a town clerk, Stormyrain says, "There is more to leading the militia than just wildly swinging a weapon."

A town clerk says, "I shall see to it."

Speaking darkly to a town clerk, Draccor says, "I'm here to control town law, and do what I want."

Speaking to a town clerk, Evician says, "You poor poor man, gonna be a busy fella."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Maylan says, "Aye, you have to look good doing it."

Speaking to a town clerk, Rokja says, "You're right. Who gives a crap about economics when we're being overrun by powerful monsters here and about. Some leadership we have here, can't even protect its citizens."

Speaking quietly to a town clerk, Pukk says, "I'm on your side."

Cryheart says, "They need martial skills and knowledge of which end of a sword to use."

A town clerk says, "Goodnight!"

Cryheart says, "And a sense of justice."

Speaking to a town clerk, Maylan says, "G'night."

Lylia says, "Thank you."

Speaking quietly to a town clerk, Pukk says, "Say hi to the family."

Ysharra says, "Good night, sirrah."

The clerk wanders off to look for new townspeople to hit up for 600 coins each.


Discussion Afterward

Hlendril says, "Tell the Town Guard here he needs to talk to my friend."

Evia says, "And good health, and stout boots."

Pukk quietly says, "A man after my own heart."

Cryheart says, "Quite the clerk."

Dodeka says, "Underpaid."

Gamiron says, "Bam... that's how you do it my friends."

Crime quietly exclaims, "The more taxes collected the more the corruption!"

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Draccor says, "I'll be the best constable in three towns."

Cruxophim amusedly remarks, "Not a bad fellow."

Speaking to Pukk, Suprie says, "That's how ya do it, take each new person for a little bit. Ya tried for too much with Thadston."

Dodeka says, "Amateur hour."

Balley softly says, "I do not have a good feeling about this."

Lylia says, "I shall take it under consideration."

Evician says, "And Crime does not pay...unless he has a debt."

Zosopage says, "That clerk must be new. He actually has a sense of humor."

Pukk quietly says, "I have a lot to learn from him."

Crime quietly exclaims, "I pay well!"

Speaking calmly to Balley, you say, "Nah, half of the candidates are good."

Balley softly says, "Time will tell."

Speaking thoughtfully in Elven to Kaseopea, Katze states, "Let us move along now my pet, I have grown bored."

Evia says, "Time will tell...I thought it was all in that water bowl thing."

Speaking quietly to Stormyrain, Pukk says, "Why didn't they consider you? I think you are a great militia captain."

Chamorr heartily says, "Well, I spose the krols is stayin home tonight."

Speaking amusedly to Stormyrain, Cruxophim agrees, "Indeed."

Hlendril shyly asks, "Or.. What about me?"

Speaking speculatively to Pukk, you say, "Going by what Thadston said, I think she would have had to throw her hat in herself to be considered."

Speaking amusedly to Shinann, Cruxophim ventures, "Or you?"

Bernadette softly says, "Aye we has two that stand here are better fit."

Speaking to Pukk, Stormyrain says, "Thank you, but clearly I have more to learn before they feel I am ready. How they think Casiphia is, I have no idea."

Pukk quietly says, "Right, or Shinann."

Hlendril says, "My father is a captain too.."

Speaking to Bernadette, Lylia says, "Indeed."

Pukk quietly says, "I think they overlooked two hard working captains."

Speaking to Pukk, Kipara says, "Maybe it's a hesitation about blood magic."

Lylia says, "I am not entirely pleased with the Council at the moment."

Balley softly says, "Still think something is off."

Stormyrain says, "It doesn't matter, the position will be very temporary if we have anything to do with it. Thrayzar's return is a top priority for us all, I hope."

Speaking politely to Lylia, Cruxophim offers, "Shall I thin their ranks, Madame Mayor?"

Cruxophim innocently murmurs, "Too soon?"

Speaking quietly to Stormyrain, Pukk says, "I think some council people were paid off."

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Wolfloner says, "Their list of candidates for Marshall does not inspire confidence."

Zosopage says, "They can be ousted if they do wrong by us."

Lylia amusedly says, "I think not at the moment."

Lylia says, "Precisely why I wish to speak to them and learn why they chose as they did."

Gamiron says, "Oh man.. that made my night."

Gamiron says, "I like the Clerk now."

Speaking to Pukk, Stormyrain says, "Khylon is a great candidate. As is Kilron, and ..I suppose a case could be made for Thadston as well."

Lylia says, "I am surprised at Casiphia's name."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Maylan says, "Aye, the RIGHT case."

Pukk quietly says, "I don't know any of them. I know you and Shinann and you both have my vote.."

Speaking wryly to Stormyrain, Cruxophim admits, "I have my doubts about that. And Casiphia."

Pukk quietly says, "I haven't seen them protecting the town."

Speaking to Lylia, Evia asks, "They were referred to as nominees...he said the council has accepted four nominations. Who exactly did the nominating?"

Pukk quietly says, "I have seen you both."

Lylia says, "But I am not averse to her wishing to serve in such a capacity. I am simply not aware she had it within her."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Shinann says, "You were voted mayor... shows anything can happen."

Speaking slowly to Evia, Cruxophim repeats, "The Town Council."

Suprie says, "This seems like a conversation we could be havin somewhere inside."

Speaking heartily to Pukk, Chamorr says, "Khylon was marshal afore Thrayzar."

Ysharra asks, "What exactly does this position do?"

Lylia says, "I believe they 'nominated' themselves."

Zosopage says, "Well you know how it works. They put candidates in you will never choose to lead you to the 'one.'"

Cruxophim diplomatically states, "Not my choice, however. I trust the capable wisdom of the Mayor."

Pukk quietly asks, "Where was he when the bodies hit the docks?"

Speaking to Cruxophim, Evia asks, "Sooo....they accepted their own nominations?"

Lylia smiles wryly and says, " 'Nomination' is, in this case, probably a term of art."

Wolfloner darkly says, "I would think the grizzled old warrior of Voln at least deserved some consideration for the position."

Pukk quietly asks, "Where was he when the lava demon came out?"

Speaking to Wolfloner, Maylan says, "He's a little preoccupied."

Shinann says, "Khylon has been ill... I imagine he is all healed up now."

Pukk quietly says, "Stormy and Shinann were protecting us during those times."

Speaking heartily to Pukk, Chamorr says, "He was gravely wounded."

Speaking amusedly to Evia, Cruxophim clarifies, "I presume the Town Council nominated the, well, nominees."

Evia says, "I would prefer Khylon."

Hlendril says, "Clouds sem odd."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk says, "Oh, that's a scowl."

Maylan says, "Now Sleepy. He'd make a fine Marshal."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Evician says, "Like they do."

Cryheart says, "Good evening all."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk says, "Now I understand."

Lylia tersely says, "If anyone wishes to speak more, I am in my office. Briefly."

Hlendril says, "Good eve.. Knight."

Stormyrain offers, "While I appreciate the votes of confidence, I think it is important that we make the best choice for the interim position we can, given the choices we have. I hope everyone will listen to what the candidates have to say next week."

(Kipara takes the mirror from her bandolier momentarily and asks it "Would you accept this nomination? Why yes I would!", and then gives herself a congratulatory pat on the back.)

Speaking to Lylia, Maylan says, "Why ever did you not nominate Quin? He does such a good job guarding the gate."

Stormyrain murmurs, "And please pick someone I can work with and not kill."

Speaking simply to Stormyrain, you say, "There is no 'we' making the best choice."

Speaking to Maylan, Lylia says, "I did not do the nominating."

Lylia says, "I believe I already made this clear."

Speaking quietly to Stormyrain, Pukk says, "Don't worry. I won't be picked."

Lylia asks, "Am I not speaking common?"

Speaking to Lylia, Maylan says, "Nothing is clear. I'm more than half drunk."

Speaking to Pukk, Stormyrain says, "I would pick you over Casiphia, at this point."

Hlendril mutters, "Barely."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "I've heard every word."

Speaking quietly to Stormyrain, Pukk says, "I don't like rules..they would kill me."

Danthius says, "Hmm."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "But I can see how a lot of it may have been lost in the rush to give you...helpful advice."

You curiously say, "A lot of you sure seem upset over a list of candidates who are only nominees. In the end the three worst will be thrown out anyway, one imagines."

Chamorr heartily says, "Well, it is what it is."

Shinann says, "Plus, it is only temporary."

Lylia says, "Precisely."

Chamorr heartily says, "Night folks."

Suprie says, "We could have Co-Marshals, if no one candidate is good enough I suppose."

Speaking quietly to Chamorr, Crime says, "And it's not what it isn't."

Mayor Lylia just entered the Moot Hall.

Ysharra says, "Perhaps the Town Council has the authority to approach potentials and nominate them themselves."

Speaking heartily to Crime, Chamorr says, "Fer sure."

Pukk quietly says, "We can have Hlendril as marshall."

Ysharra says, "And if none of you were approached, well, that was their decision."
