Introduction

[Silvergate Inn, Tea Room] Tiny, colorful songbirds and magnificent honeysuckle vines on hand-painted white silk wall coverings reach up to the high, coffered ceiling. Lit crystal-shaded golden oil lamps rest on tables scattered around the plush green carpet. Overstuffed armchairs circle each table. A tall leaded glass window offering a view of a bustling courtyard neatly frames a wide bench seat with pale golden silk cushions. Opposite the window is a tray-covered pearwood sideboard. You also see a marble-topped pearwood counter with some stuff on it and a carved pearwood tea cabinet.

Lylia adds, "Even love."


Elbromo raises an eyebrow.


Lylia says, "When we are beloved, when we are well-regarded, we raise others' armies for us."

Rovvigen nods at Azerius.

Mikalmas tilts his head toward Leafiara, examining her intently as the tip of one ear twitches briefly.


Leafiara says, "If they'd like to sell them, we could do that, but usually people offer help with design concepts for free around here--and others have come to expect the same. We're a generous town in that sense."


Mikalmas says, "Sounds like a question for Leafiara. To keep things clear going forward, specify who the question is addressed to."

Jazmeena smiles at Leafiara.

Elbromo nods at Jazmeena.

Elbromo inclines his ear, listening intently.


Lylia says, "An excellent question and a pressing concern. I have said before that we under-use our port."


Lylia says, "We ship goods through, but we do not process them while here. I would like to see these empty buildings become manufacturing centers and warehouses in some parts of town, shops in others."


Gorku ponders.


Lylia asks, "If we grow flax, for example -- and you know that is a hot issue -- then why do we not have ways to weave it or press it into paper, bind it into books?"


Lylia says, "I want a stationer's shop. I want a bookseller."


You chuckle at Lylia.


Lylia asks, "Just two concrete examples of what we may do. And of course, as my opponent noted, our Darkstone Bay is an underused resource too. Why do we have no restaurants along the waterfront?"


Ladmartigan coughs.

Leafiara nods in agreement.


Lylia says, "I hope that answers your question."


Lylia nods at Mikalmas.

Mikalmas says, "We are halfway through."

Lylia nods at Rovvigen.

Rovvigen softly says, "Ladmartigan is next."


Leafiara interjects, "May I answer that one as well?"


Leafiara grins.

Mikalmas says, "No, Leafiara gets to answer."

Mikalmas grins.

Mikalmas nods at Leafiara.

Leafiara nods.

Kasgar grins.

Rovvigen nods at Leafiara.

Mikalmas says, "He's just a bit...excited."

Mikalmas winks at Leafiara.

Ladmartigan nods.

Mikalmas grins.

Rovvigen giggles.

Rovvigen blushes a glowing shade of red.


Leafiara says, "We definitely have a lot of underused resources, and how we can change that--again, it comes back to our citizens."


Gavrien chuckles to himself.

Jazmeena mutters poor_bardsandra.

Jazmeena nods at Dethnyain.

Dethnyain nods at Jazmeena.

Rovvigen looks over at Dethnyain and shakes his head.


Leafiara says, "I'd like to see us leverage our diverse population more and sell more goods that aren't usually found in this area. We have such a variety of people and cultures, from erithians to the Dhe'nar to halflings and more, and we can become a better trade center than we are."


Lylia nods in agreement at Leafiara.


Leafiara adds, "But, of course, it's not about what -I- would like to see. A mayor is a public servant there to hear the voices of the people, so I'd invite any to come forward with their ideas no matter which of us wins, to see what we can develop together."


Leafiara nods at Rovvigen.

Rovvigen nods.

Rovvigen points at Ladmartigan.

Lylia nods at Leafiara.

Ysharra nods.

Leafiara smiles at Lylia.

Mikalmas says, "Looks like we have time for one final question."

Leafiara tilts her head toward Ladmartigan, examining him intently as the tip of one ear twitches briefly.

Tystreall slowly empties his lungs.

Speaking softly to Ladmartigan, Rovvigen says, "Ask your question please."

Ladmartigan nods.


Ladmartigan asks, "You speak of love being the guiding force, will love protect us from the Krolvin invading again? How will you bolster the town defenses in the future? Will we be able to form a town militia perhaps?"


Lylia raises her voice in merry laughter.


Lylia flatly says, "No. You misunderstand."


Mikalmas says, "Hopefully something both candidates can answer. For anyone whose questions didn't get answered tonight, there are literally a TON of debates, from about every CHE and MHO, about every night from now until election night."

Mikalmas grins.

Leafiara nods in agreement at Mikalmas.

Elbromo says, "But not every house will have pirate fights."


Lylia asks, "We cannot raise enough of an army to defeat the Krolvin menace alone. But if we have Solhaven's mercantile wealth supporting an Imperial navy? If airships from the east patrol our coastline to defend their trading partner?"


Leafiara flashes a quick grin at Elbromo.

Dethnyain nods at Elbromo.

Mikalmas turns to Elbromo and cheers!

Soliere grins slowly at Elbromo.

Mikalmas cackles!


Lylia says, "Then we have protection -- protection that no amount of our own citizenry, no matter how many militias are organized, can possibly give us."


Speaking to Elbromo, Mikalmas says, "We're getting there, don't ruin the surprise."

Mikalmas grins at Elbromo.


Lylia says, "That is the nature of soft power versus military might."


Ladmartigan nods at Lylia.


Lylia reminds, "Which, again, we have no population to support."


Lylia inclines her head.

Lylia nods at Mikalmas.

Soliere grins at Elbromo.

Lylia nods at Rovvigen.

Rovvigen softly says, "Leafiara's rebuttal."

Elbromo smiles.

Rovvigen peers quizzically at Leafiara.

Leafiara nods at Rovvigen.

Ladmartigan peers quizzically at Leafiara.

Rovvigen nods.

Rovvigen recites softly:

"Then we move on to trivia"

Rovvigen nods at Soliere.

Soliere asks, "Who wha?"

Soliere winks at Rovvigen.


Leafiara says, "While it's easy to imagine an invading force large enough to destroy the Landing, I'd at least like to remind everyone of the countless enemies who we have faced who have tried and failed to destroy our town in the past."


Elbromo nods at Leafiara.

Dethnyain nods at Leafiara.


Leafiara says, "So in the first place I'd only like to say that the situation isn't as dire as some might fear--not that you're necessarily one of them, of course."


Leafiara grins at Ladmartigan.

Ladmartigan chuckles.

Gorku smiles.

Elbromo smiles.

Tystreall sighs.


Leafiara adds, "And while it's true we don't have an especially large population--and if you want safety in numbers there are certainly better places to live--we do have some notable resources in the area that can be drawn upon, like Melgorehen's Reach."


Mikalmas nods at Soliere.


Leafiara acknowledges, "It's always risky to do so, of course, but that is the Landing and a risk most of our population is usually willing to take."


Leafiara says, "A resilient town with daring plans."


Leafiara nods.

Leafiara nods at Rovvigen.

Mikalmas recites:

"Soliere will lead the Trivia event and ask the questions! Rovvigen will keep score. But we have TWO more events after this! So lets get started!"

Phase One: Trivia

Mikalmas says, "Soliere, take Phase 1 away~."

Leafiara tilts her head toward Soliere, examining her intently as the tip of one ear twitches briefly.

Mikalmas turns toward Soliere and renders a sharp hand salute.

Rovvigen softly says, "Leafiara with 10 pts."

Mikalmas says, "That was FAST."
