Lake Austin Shardpic for report

I was walking with Governor Jahajx Jov on the city walls. When we stopped to enjoy the view, I had opportunity to interview him. “Governor, your city is no doubt one of the shining gems in Britannia. What makes Trinsic unique?”

Smiling at me, Governor Jov looked around the city pointing out the city walls and large dock area. ” Trinsic is the only truly fortified city. We can withstand attacks that would leave other cities in ruin. We also boast arguably the finest deep water port facilities in the realm.

What makes Trinisic special to you?”

He smiled as he remembered events from the past. “In my younger years I was an active member of the West Trinsic Trade organization, a group of complimentary vendors. We worked together to promote each other’s businesses. I was the organization’s scribe and magery supplies specialist. I was also part of the city guard that ousted Juo’Nar during the undead invasion of Trinsic.”

“Now that the Traversis threat has been removed, what is you vision for your city?”

“Thanks to the help of the Royal spies and guard, we were able to drive out the Traversis.” He paused in thought, “Now is a time for rebuilding. My vision is to change Trinisic into prosperous center of trade and with a vibrant community. Since, I took office, we have entered have a trade deal with the guild of arcane arts. This deal has allowed our mages to increase the damage of their spells by 5%. While that doesn’t seem high, it made a difference in our battle against the Traviesty.  Also I am currently  talking with the other Governors. I hope to develop trade routes with them.” He explained.

Smiling at the Governor, “May I ask some questions that are more personal?”

“But of course,” he replied. “What would you like to know?”

Looking at my notes  I asked, “What city were you born in?”

” 16 years ago, I was born on the eastern docks of Vesper and I grew up hunting in the surrounding forests. A part of me will always call Vesper home. ” he fondly said.

“I know you are very busy as Governor.  Before being elected Governor, what other jobs did you hold?” I asked.

He laughed, ” I have worn many hats over the years. Guild Master, IDOC hunter, Resource Vendor, Real Estate Mogul, Bar Tender, Spawner and Teacher of new players just to name a few. You would also be hard pressed to find a skill that I have not mastered at least once. I am still very involved in teaching new players and heading my guild.” He continued, “I am the founding member of the Canadian Brew Crew (EH?). We started in the lands of Atlantic many years ago and moved to lake Austin shortly after its lands opened. I’ve been the guild master since we formed; so roughly 15 years. ”

I looked at him in amazement. “With all of your commitments, do you find time to relax?”
Nodding at me, he replied, “As odd as it sounds, I quite enjoy a quiet hunt in some out of the way place with friends; which I suppose lately would consist of excursions into the abyss. Nothing is as fun than exploring and hunting with a friend.”

Just then one of the builders called to him. “Alas I only have time for one more question. I need to return to the overseeing of the repairs.”

“My last question is, ” What would you say to the citizens of Britannia?”

“I would say to them, Get out and be more active in your home city! We have an excellent council of Governor’s this term and there are trade deals a plenty for citizens to utilize. It would also be great to see everyone out to join the Friday night hunts. The proceeds of these hunts are sent to one of the cities to assist in the funding of trade deals. I will make announcements regarding the activities in Trinsic on a weekly basis during before our Royal Spy meetings. If anyone has any need to get in touch with me I can typically be found in the lands most evenings. ”

“Wonderful advice,” I said bowing, “Thank you so much for this chance to talk to you. Be safe in your travels.” I watched as he left, then once again looked around at the beauty that is the city of Trinsic.

I was able to meet with Govenor Garion after the town council.  He agreed to grant an interview.

“Thank you, Governor Garion for allowing me to interview you.”

“It is my pleasure, Tamais.” he replied.

“My first question is why is your city special to you?”

Governor Garion thought and said with pride, ” As the city of warriors, Jhelom has faced many challenges from invasions
and pirates. We have always come out stronger. But while we are known for Dupre and our fighting pits, we have a
rich culture in our islands from farmers to bards.

My second question is related to the one you just answered.  How is your city  unique?”

“We are an island city known for our fighting pits where hearty warriors train for battle, our farms, our navy to
battle pirates, and our cultural pursuits.” he explained

“What is your vision for your city?”

“To try to make it a more vibrant city for which the citizens will be proud. As an island city, we cannot grow as big as other cities, but I want
to see Jhelom known for more than warriors and fighting.” he stated.

“This next question was submitted to me by citizens of Britannia looking for a new home.  Has your city entered into trade deals with any guild and other cities?”

” Yes, We have negotiated agreements in the past with the warrior and assassins guilds. Both guilds have raised the price of their trade deals  so we have been unable to recently due to the costs.  Now we spend more time cooperating with the city of Skara Brae raising funds for the various city treasuries in weekly adventures .”

“Now for more personal questions.” I asked with a smile.

He winked as he replied , “As long as I can not answer some questions.”

Laughing, I reassured him that the questions would not be embarrassing.  “Where were you born?”

” Long ago, I was born in the city of tamers and rangers, Skara Brae. ”

“And how  long were you  a citizen of Skara Brae? ”

“I lived in Skara Brae for almost 15 years ago. I moved to Jhelom when  warriors and tamers were needed to help protect the city.”  his eyes held a sadness when he answered.

Quickly I asked a question that wouldn’t bring back memories of a war long past. “What was your job before you took the office of Governor?”

“I am the guild master of the UMP guild, the Universal Melting Pot (UMP).  It is one of the longest running guilds in  the lands of Britiania.

I am also  the guild’s trainer. However, I do have an affinity for tamer and pets.” he replied giving his mount a treat.

“Knowing you are needed else where, this will be my last question for now. Is there anything you wish to say to the citizens of Britiania?”

“We welcome all those who wish to visit or become citizens of Jhelom. The people in these lands are quite friendly and are always
willing to help out people in need in whatever activity. Do not hesitate to seek them out when you need help. After all, with good friends, you
can accomplish most any challenge in the lands.  Now I must return to my duties.” Bowing, he said.

“Thank you so much for sharing with the citizens of both Jhelom and Britiania.  Be safe in your journeys.” I returned his bow.

With a wave, he recalled  back to his city.
