(Player Event) Shard Public Auction

April 21, 2014 By: Flair Category: Siege Perilous News

On Saturday, 10th May at 3pm Eastern, the representatives of the King’s Council will be holding a shard public auction in order to give the people of Siege an opportunity to trade goods, promote shard interaction, and raise money for town treasuries. If successful, the event could become a biannual event at the start of each governorship term of office (or conceivably even twice per term). This thread is intended to give advance notice of the auction; further details and the official list of lots for sale will come in May.

Venue & auctioneer

The auction will take place at Gilfane Arena and I will be acting as auctioneer. Kattasrophe is working as chief assistant and will be organizing complementary activities.

Commission & donations

The auctioneer will levy a charge of 5% on all lots sold and the money so raised [the “Town Fund”] will be split equally between the seven towns involved (Jhelom, Minoc, Moonglow, New Magincia, Skara Brae, Trinsic, Vesper). If any member of the public wishes to contribute further, then they are welcome to make additional contributions in four possible ways:

a) By donating an item(s) entirely to the Town Fund, in which case 100% of the auction sale price will go into the fund.

b) By donating an item(s) to ONE particular town, in which case the remaining 95% of the sale price will go directly to the specified town.

c) By donating an item to York’s new player vendor subsidy program, in which case the remaining 95% of the sale price will go directly to this cause.

d) By donating a lump some of cash to the Town Fund or to specified town(s). This is no different than giving cash directly to the town heralds, except that your donation will appear in the official accounts and will therefore be recorded for posterity.

Reserve Price

Items submitted for sale may be assigned a minimum price that the seller is willing to accept, although items may be rejected if the auctioneer views the reserve as unreasonably high and unlikely to lead to a sale.

Advanced bids

To aid those unable to attend the live event or find a suitable proxy, the auctioneer will take private bids in advance of the sale. Further details on this service will be posted nearer the event.

Submitting items for sale

To raise interest and awareness for the auction, the public is encouraged to announce items for sale as soon as possible. However, as the auction house will not be taking receipt of goods until May, anything so announced/listed is not final and could be withdrawn by the seller.

To submit your items, PM me here. Be sure to include any reserve prices you wish to assign the goods, although these could be changed later. All items are presumed to be for the benefit of the seller unless otherwise stated. If you wish to donate the entire proceeds of an item to one of the causes (Town Fund, individual town, subsidy program), please clearly state this. Items donated to a cause will state the name of the donor unless anonymity is specifically requested. General items for sale will not list the name of the seller unless it is necessary to do so.

If you are intending to sell low-priced items, please try and group them together where possible. What constitutes a “low price” is unclear at this point. Once official submissions are taken in May, we should have a better idea of the amount of items that are likely to be for sale and what to set the minimum requirements at.

Official accounts

A record of sale prices and all monies raised will be published after the auction. The auctioneer will deposit the money raised for each town directly with the heralds in the presence of Kattasrophe and/or another creditable witness.

Confidentiality & liability

All reserve prices, advance bids and other privileged information from sellers will be kept in confidence by the auctioneer except in the event of a new auctioneer having to be appointed due to illness or force majeure.

Final responsibility for items being sold, monies raised thereon, and the conduct of the auction, lies with the auctioneer and not the members of the King’s Council.

If anyone can suggest an amusing name for this type of auction, “Townaid” or something, please do so.

Provisional Sale List (21st April) Shall be updated here weekly, but for a more updated list/more information please see  http://uo2.stratics.com/community/threads/shard-public-auction.314642/#post-2380211d items

Kings Meeting Minutes 30Mar2014

March 30, 2014 By: Flair Category: Siege Perilous News

[15:29:57] [King Blackthorn]: I believe it is time to begin.
[15:30:20] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you to those who have made time in their busy scheudles today.
[15:30:34] [King Blackthorn]: though I am saddened to see four towns unrepresented.
[15:30:37] [Nebiki]: i think talia is stuck out side
[15:31:32] [King Blackthorn]: We have a good bit to cover today so let us begin.
[15:31:53] [King Blackthorn]: First off, as many of you have noticed, there have been a few changes here since our last meeting.
[15:32:28] [King Blackthorn]: The chair for the Governor of Bucanneer’s Den has been removed and they are no longer represented on the council.
[15:32:51] [King Blackthorn]: The treachery of Governor Marcus Rotgut was revealed to all.
[15:33:01] [King Blackthorn]: The theft of the world-gem.
[15:33:12] [King Blackthorn]: The revelation that he was the reviled Shadow himself.













[15:33:40] [King Blackthorn]: all eventually led to his own death at the hands of the Demon’s he played with.
[15:34:12] [King Blackthorn]: Due to the theft here of all places, I have requested that a portion of the King’s Guard be reassigned to this council.
[15:34:31] [King Blackthorn]: they will stand guard here to protect the chambers and items within.
[15:35:06] [King Blackthorn]: It is with regret that I have learned that the people of Bucaneer’s Den are happy to be free of the crown again.
[15:35:29] [King Blackthorn]: it seems their membership here was only to learn more of us to take advantage of us.
[15:35:52] [King Blackthorn]: But now, that is all in the past.
[15:36:33] [King Blackthorn]: and we are left with the physical representations of the Virtuous Principles corrupted.
[15:37:32] [King Blackthorn]: Now, it is up to us to determine how to cleanse the Bell, the Book, and the Candle.
[15:38:04] [King Blackthorn]: I have put some research into it, but alas I have not found a solution as of yet.
[15:38:29] [King Blackthorn]: The next item pending is the King’s Contest.
[15:38:49] [King Blackthorn]: I believe that the current standings put Lady Sara Dale in the lead for the grand prize.
[15:39:03] [Sara Dale]: Thats me
[15:39:06] [Flair]: ohhh
[15:39:53] [King Blackthorn]: Lady Dale has submitted a 191 stone Summer Dragonfish.
[15:40:04] [King Blackthorn]: quite an accomplishment. *smiles*
[15:40:10] [TjloSjhion]: shes cool 😀
[15:40:15] [Sara Dale]: It was hard work getting past the dragons
[15:40:24] [The Gooch]: atta girl
[15:40:30] [tick]: yay!
[15:40:53] [King Blackthorn]: The smallest fish is a 7 stone fish caught by Sir Malloc.
[15:41:05] [York]: was it cute?
[15:41:08] [The Gooch]: very impressive none the less!
[15:41:09] [York]: lol
[15:41:35] [King Blackthorn]: and the Largest Crab or Lobster is a rare Blue Lobster submitted by Garfield.
[15:41:45] [Sara Dale]: Yea Garfield
[15:41:48] [tick]: woot
[15:42:05] [King Blackthorn]: We are about 7 hours away from the end of the contest. Please get your final entries turned in
[15:42:12] [King Blackthorn]: by Midnight US Eastern Time.
[15:42:22] [Hoffs]: If you want to know about Sara’s struggle to land the mighty fish, read her forthcoming book…
[15:42:30] [Hoffs]: “The old woman and the sea”
[15:42:34] [tick]: ouch
[15:42:35] [Flair]: really.. sounds like a good read
[15:42:40] [aulbrey]: i caught a flair does that count? *giggles*
[15:42:48] [King Blackthorn]: I have been notified that the magics used to build Castle Blackthorn may prevent the winner from being displayed there.
[15:43:00] [Sara Dale]: awww
[15:43:05] [King Blackthorn]: if that is the case, then the winner will be displayed here in the Governor’s Council Chambers.
[15:43:14] [TjloSjhion]: woo
[15:43:14] [Sara Dale]: What about the awards house?
[15:43:29] [King Blackthorn]: but every effort will be made to display it in the castle if it is possible.
[15:43:44] [Kelmo]: There is that nice spot near Britain Moongate…
[15:44:05] [King Blackthorn]: My intent is for the Awards house to be the final display place after a reasonable time at the castle or here.
[15:44:18] [Sara Dale]: nice
[15:44:23] [King Blackthorn]: I hope everyone has enjoyed the contest.
[15:44:27] [Sara Dale]: I already have shoes there
[15:44:27] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
[15:44:35] [Sara Dale]: its been a blast
[15:44:57] [King Blackthorn]: And now, let us hear from our Governors and learn of our cities.
[15:45:14] [King Blackthorn]: Lord York? Are you settled into your new home?
[15:45:31] [York]: yes, i have settled in well
[15:45:43] [York]: Would you like me to speak first?
[15:45:50] [King Blackthorn]: Please do. *smiles*
[15:45:55] [York]: Ty
[15:46:12] [York]: Upon arrival in Skara Brae I could not help but notice signs of a rift in the citizens.
[15:46:20] [York]: This is not too surprising since there has been a lack of direction for a short time.
[15:46:26] [aulbrey]: its empty for the reals this time
[15:46:29] [York]: The Mayor was found drunken early in the morning,
[15:46:37] [York]: with the excuse that “he was just sampling…. Skara’s finest export.”
[15:46:56] [York]: The Town Guards though, have proved to be very nimble and
[15:47:16] [York]: willing to strike down a threat to the town.
[15:47:36] [York]: Despite the initial set back with the mayor…
[15:47:43] [York]: I have been pleased to see that the citizens of Skara Brae are among
[15:47:47] [York]: the most passionate and spiritual.
[15:47:56] [York]: It will be a great honor to serve this community.
[15:48:03] [York]: On other town matter fiscally the town seems on track;
[15:48:11] [York]: A trade deal with the Bardic Collegium allowing citizen to benefit from a faster casting bonus.
[15:48:26] [King Blackthorn]: well done
[15:48:34] [York]: This was provided by a few players, mainly Hoffs, Spargo, Tina Tink, and Skara’s budget.
[15:48:41] [York]: I am still not convinced the trade deals are a fair deal,
[15:48:48] [York]: I am still not convinced the trade deals are a fair deal,
[15:48:56] [York]: but the citizens support them and I will do as they wish.
[15:49:06] [York]: I have also started a Subsidy program
[15:49:12] [York]: to help encourage general use items to be stocked at a fair price.
[15:49:21] [York]: This includes subsidizing vendors and funding upcoming merchants (resource gathers).
[15:49:28] [York]: A promo is being put together so citizens can easily find these vendors.
[15:49:34] [York]: The only request that the citizens of Skara Brae have made was
[15:49:40] [York]: the matter of acknowledging the settlement of Gilfane.
[15:49:43] [York]: …
[15:49:53] [York]: All other town matters seem to be in order;
[15:50:09] [York]: Thank you
[15:50:15] [York]: that is all
[15:50:18] [King Blackthorn]: I am quite frustrated that the monument for Gilfane has not been completed as of yet.
[15:50:29] [The Gooch]: among other settlements…
[15:50:31] [King Blackthorn]: I have learned not to pay the contractors in advance again.
[15:50:53] [York]: hah they can be crafty
[15:50:56] [York]: ….
[15:51:03] [King Blackthorn]: I shall continue efforts there to see that it is eventually completed.
[15:51:16] [King Blackthorn]: as well as the one for Barter Town.
[15:51:28] [York]: Ty M’Lord
[15:51:39] [King Blackthorn]: For Barter Town, the requested trees are growing nicely, but are not yet ready for planting at their permanent home.
[15:51:53] [The Gooch]: Aye thank you, King
[15:51:55] [Ladra]: yes, we want a big one!
[15:52:09] [King Blackthorn]: Lady Kattasrophe? How fares Moonglow?
[15:52:24] [Kattasrophe]: I do have a small report if I may. My lord
[15:52:28] [Luka Melehan]: *whispers* trees?
[15:53:00] [King Blackthorn]: Please proceed Kattasrophe
[15:53:30] [Kattasrophe]: I would like to start off today by saying thank you to all of the Moonglow Citizens
[15:53:39] [Kattasrophe]: Who have given me the oppertunity to be their Governor.
[15:53:55] [Kattasrophe]: I have enjoyed being here for them.
[15:54:13] [Kattasrophe]: The citizens of Moonglow have donated generously this Month.
[15:54:23] [Kattasrophe]: I would like to say a special thank you to the following people
[15:54:35] [Kattasrophe]: Ravn and Andreas Cross, Arminda
[15:54:45] [Kattasrophe]: Katniss, Talia, Robert the Brute,
[15:54:57] [Kattasrophe]: Sara Dale, DeadBob, Norman Bates, and Governor York
[15:55:01] [Talia]: WoooooOOOOOooooo!!!
[15:55:24] [York]: :)
[15:55:26] [Kattasrophe]: Because of the generously donations of the citizens
[15:55:37] [Kattasrophe]: I was able to open up a trade deal for the Bardiac Collegium
[15:55:51] [Kattasrophe]: For the citizens that have a sword or a bow
[15:56:04] [Kattasrophe]: I will switch betweeen the Bardiac Collegium and the Assians
[15:56:26] [Flair]: You feel sober.
[15:56:31] [Kattasrophe]: Ravn Cross is also building a house that has an Arena in it for everyone
[15:56:42] [TjloSjhion]: :)
[15:56:44] [Kattasrophe]: Although he may not be here he wanted me to say
[15:56:50] [Kattasrophe]: Everyone is welcome there
[15:57:08] [Kattasrophe]: On April the 5th at 3pm Eastern
[15:57:19] [Kattasrophe]: I will be holding a Carnival in Moonglow

[15:57:52] [Kattasrophe]: I am looking forward to restoring the zoo
[15:57:58] [Kattasrophe]: there is no animals in there.

[16:02:25] [Kelmo]: As you well know there is a wrecked building in the center of Trinsic.












[16:02:33] [TjloSjhion]: :(
[16:02:36] [Kelmo]: i do not know why
[16:02:42] [Luka Melehan]: not good for business
[16:02:46] [King Blackthorn]: Someday I hope to learn the story of that building.
[16:03:02] [Kelmo]: the buildings are all damaged
[16:03:19] [Kelmo]: I too would like to understand this
[16:03:22] [Fat Cat]: it got raided by tons of monsters!
[16:03:24] [Nebiki]: was war in trinsic long ago
[16:03:38] [Fat Cat]: before your time kelmo
[16:05:12] [Kelmo]: there is a veritable dungeon under the city
[16:05:44] [Kelmo]: I would like to see this investigated
[16:05:50] [Kelmo]: I also ask that something be done about the lawless gangs of thugs roaming the lands. Criminals one and all these “factioneers”
[16:06:16] [Luka Melehan]: damn kids…
[16:06:18] [Kelmo]: these criminals have had their way long enough
[16:06:42] [Kelmo]: lawless gangs… the lot of ’em.
[16:06:51] [Kelmo]: The trade unions are entirely over priced for the few meager incentives offered.
[16:06:52] [sir Vincent]: Hmm
[16:06:59] [Kelmo]: For the “tributes” demanded by the unions they should at least be worth while and better yet, assist in gathering the taxes.
[16:07:09] [aulbrey]: …I’m not wasted…
[16:07:20] [Luka Melehan]: here here
[16:07:22] [Kelmo]: they have a strangle hold over the towns
[16:07:31] [Kelmo]: Perhaps the unions could provide us with better incentives and some town vendors.
[16:08:08] [Fat Cat]: your worries are over kelmo. fat cat is here
[16:08:15] [Kelmo]: also a way to track the number of citizens in a town
[16:08:32] [Kelmo]: if not the names at least some numbers
[16:08:53] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you Lord Kelmo.
[16:09:09] [York]: some thought out requests
[16:09:13] [York]: :)
[16:09:17] [Fat Cat]: yes!
[16:09:19] [King Blackthorn]: I do agree that the rogues roaming the lands have caused some distress.
[16:09:33] [King Blackthorn]: and yet, that is a part of what makes this land what it is.
[16:09:40] [King Blackthorn]: A balance of Order and Chaos.
[16:09:51] [Fat Cat]: ^^
[16:09:54] [Talia]: who doesn’t like a little distress?
[16:10:06] [King Blackthorn]: As the Governor of the City of Honor and the Paladins,
[16:10:10] [Kelmo]: indeed my liege…
[16:10:10] [York]: …
[16:10:24] [King Blackthorn]: I believe that you are most suited to assist in combatting these rogues.
[16:11:02] [Kelmo]: I will consider… options
[16:11:09] [King Blackthorn]: Of course, the crown will back you as needed. Please report to me regularly that I may stay aware of your progress. *smiles*
[16:11:25] [Kelmo]: as you command…
[16:11:32] [King Blackthorn]: For the rest, be it known that the system and tools of governors is still new and growing.
[16:11:57] [King Blackthorn]: I hope that some or all of these suggestions will come at a future date, but when that may be I am not certain at this time.
[16:12:21] [aulbrey]: Hey everyone. Listen to my song!
[16:12:30] [York]: your… cat… katt..
[16:12:34] [King Blackthorn]: Is no one here to speak for the capital city?
[16:12:59] [Flair]: it is in constant turmoil.. there are always people fighting the streets there
[16:13:18] [York]: This is disturbing news
[16:13:21] [Luka Melehan]: makes it hard for traders to do business
[16:13:30] [York]: in the fair town of brit..
[16:14:01] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Gooch. How fares Minoc and the suburb of Bartertown?
[16:14:03] [Talia]: It aint so bad
[16:14:15] [The Gooch]: Hail citizens!
[16:14:23] [The Gooch]: whats up, King
[16:14:32] [Fat Cat]: hiss!
[16:14:45] [The Gooch]: I have some small news to start off with
[16:14:47] [York]: :)
[16:14:53] [Kelmo]: this will be interesting
[16:15:07] [The Gooch]: I have spent sometime meeting and greeting with the hard working minocians
[16:15:25] [The Gooch]: and although they are not as giving for a trade deal as some of the realms other cities
[16:15:32] [The Gooch]: they are most certainly full of life
[16:15:56] [The Gooch]: Barter Town has offered to all citizens of the realm
[16:16:13] [The Gooch]: That if they choose to do their buisness and banking inside the city limits of Minoc
[16:16:30] [The Gooch]: The acquisition experts of Barter Town will stay out of their packs
[16:16:42] [The Gooch]: in an effort to bring more buisness and shakers to Minoc
[16:16:47] [Fat Cat]: hisses
[16:17:13] [The Gooch]: We still have several statues throughout the city
[16:17:33] [Kelmo]: at we have “honest” thieves representing here unlike the represenitives from buc’s
[16:17:34] [The Gooch]: that remain unfinished but ive been assured our artisians are hard at work to complete these
[16:17:49] [The Gooch]: Aye, Thank you Kelm’s
[16:18:00] [The Gooch]: We are also taking donations
[16:18:16] [York]: donations.. is that what they call it these days.
[16:18:19] [The Gooch]: For a new roller coaster that is being designed for mount kendall
[16:18:23] [King Blackthorn]: Taking? or accepting? *arches eyebrows*
[16:18:27] [Hoffs]: !
[16:18:38] [Fat Cat]: meow
[16:18:50] [The Gooch]: Basically Minoc is the funniest place in the realm
[16:19:02] [The Gooch]: Barter Town or Die *drops mic*
[16:19:16] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you Lord Gooch.
[16:19:24] [King Blackthorn]: I look forward to hearing more of your progress.
[16:19:49] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Ironfish? Doth New Magincia fare well?
[16:19:50] [York]: Good job gooch.

[16:24:01] [Fat Cat]: lord hisss
[16:24:17] [The Gooch]: ^^
[16:24:24] [King Blackthorn]: What you requested there sounds very nice, but it is well beyond what a King can provide and is akin to asking for nature to change the seasons.
[16:24:44] [King Blackthorn]: and yet, I shall pass the suggestion up to the Goddess and Gods above.
[16:25:01] [Fat Cat]: awes black thorn!!!
[16:25:21] [King Blackthorn]: And now, does anyone from the citizenry wish to speak?

[16:30:08] [TjloSjhion]: I dont have fish kitty :(
[16:30:08] [King Blackthorn]: Lady Kattasrophe?
[16:30:09] [Talia]: Better than the place goin to Ulthar
[16:30:18] [Kattasrophe]: As you said earlier about the Bell Book and Candle
[16:30:20] [The Gooch]: Siege is gonna be the street nobody likes cos there are way too many cats
[16:30:25] [The Gooch]: and lonely women feeding them
[16:30:37] [Kattasrophe]: I believe that if you find someone who is pure of heart
[16:30:52] [Kattasrophe]: they should be able to clinse it
[16:30:55] [Nebiki]: should skin the cats and get dogs
[16:31:08] [TjloSjhion]: id rather have a cat
[16:31:08] [Kattasrophe]: it was the bad who corrupted them.
[16:31:23] [Kattasrophe]: So someone pure of heart and is kind should be able to fix it.
[16:31:27] [King Blackthorn]: Can there be such a person other than the Avatar himself?
[16:31:38] [The Gooch]: I could probably do it
[16:31:43] [Kattasrophe]: I do not know.
[16:31:46] [The Gooch]: let me take them to the labs over at Barter Town
[16:31:47] [Talia]: I recommend Scouring Toxin!
[16:31:53] [Kattasrophe]: But Hope makes people do wonderful things
[16:32:05] [King Blackthorn]: That it does.
[16:32:21] [King Blackthorn]: Is there no one to speak for Jhelom today?
[16:32:28] [King Blackthorn]: I understand that Sam had a conflict.
[16:33:14] [King Blackthorn]: As a last order of business, we have two empty Governor’s Chairs this term.
[16:33:35] [King Blackthorn]: Lady Samantha is missed.
[16:33:54] [The Gooch]: ^^
[16:33:54] [King Blackthorn]: I would ask that our current governors submit nominations to fill these vacant seats.
[16:33:58] [York]: I know one of the members of the Cross characters has expessed interest in vesper
[16:34:07] [Flair]: nominations
[16:34:16] [Kattasrophe]: Eli Cross has shown great intrest in Vesper
[16:34:27] [Kattasrophe]: I fully cast my vote to him
[16:34:32] [King Blackthorn]: Eli Cross? I do not believe that I know him.
[16:34:44] [Kattasrophe]: He is Ravn Cross’s brother
[16:34:49] [Kattasrophe]: the one I had mentioned in my report.
[16:34:51] [King Blackthorn]: Is he here today?
[16:34:53] [Morgan Ironfist]: I would suggest Becca to speak for Yew since she is living close by and knows the people’s needs!?
[16:34:59] [Kattasrophe]: he is not.
[16:35:04] [TjloSjhion]: I am a vesper fan
[16:35:09] [Fat Cat]: ha!
[16:35:11] [TjloSjhion]: im only 6 months old though
[16:35:18] [King Blackthorn]: Who would speak for Eli as to why he would make a good governor?
[16:35:19] [Flair]: i wanna know what are you gonna do about Brit
[16:35:24] [Kattasrophe]: *raises hand
[16:35:30] [Flair]: we never see the governor there and it’s lawless
[16:35:43] [King Blackthorn]: You already spoke on his behalf Lady Kattasrope.
[16:35:49] [King Blackthorn]: I am hoping for a second?
[16:35:54] [York]: I have spoken with him and he is very interested in vesting in eventianment
[16:36:04] [York]: Second
[16:36:12] [The Gooch]: third
[16:36:24] [Talia]: did you just say….. eventainment?
[16:36:33] [Kelmo]: I abstain.
[16:36:33] [King Blackthorn]: The motion has been made to install Eli Cross as Governor of Vesper.
[16:36:41] [King Blackthorn]: Governors? How do you vote?
[16:36:44] [Fat Cat]: hisssss
[16:36:46] [King Blackthorn]: we have 3 for?
[16:36:48] [King Blackthorn]: others?
[16:37:06] [Shayla Keylley]: Should a public notice be posted?
[16:37:39] [York]: :)
[16:37:41] [Ladra]: that cat is chasing my rat, kill it!
[16:37:51] [Kattasrophe]: *gasps* He is my cat
[16:37:52] [The Gooch]: tsk tsk
[16:38:03] [Fat Cat]: dem fightin words!
[16:38:04] [Kattasrophe]: Sit and be good Cat
[16:38:09] [King Blackthorn]: Lord Ironfist? Have you any thoughts on adding Eli Cross to this council?
[16:38:25] [Morgan Ironfist]: SOunds like a good idea
[16:38:46] [King Blackthorn]: and Lord Kelmo? You have abstained?
[16:39:08] [Kelmo]: I have… (glances at moonglow*
[16:39:34] [King Blackthorn]: Then by a vote of 4 with one abstaining and two absent, the motion is carried.
[16:39:46] [King Blackthorn]: Governor Cross shall be installed in Vesper.
[16:39:51] [The Gooch]: nice
[16:40:01] [King Blackthorn]: I belive Becca’s name was presented for Yew?
[16:40:09] [King Blackthorn]: Is Lady Becca here today?
[16:40:12] [Morgan Ironfist]: I have not spoken to her
[16:40:19] [Morgan Ironfist]: she is not unfortunately
[16:40:23] [Kattasrophe]: She did show intrest in running.
[16:40:28] [Hoffs]: I somewhat doubt she would be interested.
[16:40:30] [Morgan Ironfist]: but I think she would make a great governor of Yew
[16:40:31] [York]: This is good news
[16:40:33] [Hoffs]: She is not a politician.
[16:40:47] [Morgan Ironfist]: Lives exactly north of the Abbey
[16:40:47] [Kelmo]: are we drafting cov’ners now?
[16:40:51] [Luka Melehan]: Becca is trust worthy
[16:40:54] [Fat Cat]: dont look at fat cat!
[16:40:58] [King Blackthorn]: The best leaders are often not politicians.
[16:41:06] [Ladra]: if you can’t be here now, how could you be governor?
[16:41:06] [Hoffs]: She is indeed. But not someone who enjoys leadership.
[16:41:15] [King Blackthorn]: but she must express the desire to be a governor.
[16:41:15] [Nebiki]: politicians are bad people
[16:41:31] [TjloSjhion]: Politication?
[16:41:33] [Flair]: so we should only pick from who is here???
[16:41:37] [Flair]: that’s not fair
[16:41:51] [Nebiki]: they should run for it like always
[16:41:52] [Shayla Keylley]: well Eli wasn’t here
[16:41:54] [York]: So you have anyone in mind?
[16:41:55] [Ladra]: yeah, it’s good if you are present at the meetings if you want to be a governor..
[16:42:01] [King Blackthorn]: Are there any other names to put forth?
[16:42:17] [Morgan Ironfist]: Well another name that comes to mind is former governor Hoffs
[16:42:21] [Shayla Keylley]: Make a public post mayhaps?
[16:42:24] [Luka Melehan]: wait….are we overstepping the election process?
[16:42:29] [TjloSjhion]: stares with a lust for blood*
[16:42:38] [Fat Cat]: tuna!
[16:42:39] [Morgan Ironfist]: she knows the business
[16:42:40] [TjloSjhion]: … shew* whipes forhead
[16:42:53] [Morgan Ironfist]: leads the largest guild on Siege Perilious
[16:42:58] [King Blackthorn]: Lady Melehan. This is a King’s Council. While governors are preferrably selected by the people,
[16:43:04] [Flair]: and is cute
[16:43:09] [King Blackthorn]: I’d rather have a governor than an empty seat.
[16:43:16] [TjloSjhion]: I vote Nebiki
[16:43:43] [Flair]: personally i am more worried about places like Brit..
[16:43:44] [Nebiki]: we vote for our leaders
[16:43:51] [King Blackthorn]: I must also say that I regret Lady Hoffs decision to not run for Governor again.
[16:43:54] [Flair]: i never see the governor from there and it’s lawless
[16:44:10] [York]: perhaps she will again..
[16:44:12] [TjloSjhion]: freerunner
[16:44:16] [York]: :)
[16:44:18] [TjloSjhion]: vesper!
[16:44:20] [The Gooch]: Hoffs and GIL are running the Skara Brea governor
[16:44:24] [Luka Melehan]: you want to run Flair? for brit?
[16:44:24] [The Gooch]: >.>
[16:44:25] [The Gooch]: <.<
[16:44:41] [Hoffs]: I have recovered somewhat from my malaise of recent times, and would probably run in Skara again
[16:44:45] [York]: excuse me?
[16:44:49] [Hoffs]: should York ever vacate the seat.
[16:44:55] [Flair]: i just think it should be represented is all.. hugi has had two terms and is never there
[16:44:57] [Flair]: so why run
[16:45:10] [York]: I will step down after this term.
[16:45:24] [King Blackthorn]: As we seem to have no concensus on a Governor for Yew, I will leave it to the governors to submit candidates.
[16:45:27] [York]: since there is a bit of a problem with mid term step downs
[16:45:47] [King Blackthorn]: Speak with your people and see who is loyal to Yew.
[16:45:59] [King Blackthorn]: Find out who may be willing.
[16:46:10] [King Blackthorn]: and let us discuss it again at the next council meeting.
[16:46:13] [York]: Will do
[16:46:20] [King Blackthorn]: If a candidate arises before then
[16:46:29] [Hoffs]: I shall speak with Steven, the brother of former governor Samantha.
[16:46:30] [King Blackthorn]: and is essentially doing the job of Governor
[16:46:43] [Hoffs]: He expressed a desire to run for Yew.
[16:46:43] [King Blackthorn]: then it will be quite easy for them to assume the role officially.
[16:46:57] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you Lady Hoffs.
[16:47:01] [Hoffs]: [Samantha sold him the account when she became unable to continue playing]
[16:47:03] [King Blackthorn]: That is good Information.
[16:47:29] [King Blackthorn]: I beleive that is all of our business for today.
[16:47:37] [King Blackthorn]: Shall we adjourn?
[16:47:41] [York]: Aye
[16:47:43] [sir Vincent]: yes!
[16:47:59] [King Blackthorn]: The meeting is adjourned
[16:48:03] [York]: :)
[16:48:04] [King Blackthorn]: Thank you all for attending.
[16:48:08] [Hoffs]: Thank you, Lord Blackthorn.
[16:48:15] [Shayla Keylley]: Thank you M’Lord
[16:48:22] [Kattasrophe]: *smiles* Thank you Lord BlackThorn

Transcript of the Catskills Meeting with Mesanna and Kryonix

March 20, 2014 By: Flair Category: Community News

[19:04:04] [Crystal] Mesanna says: ok lets begin
[19:04:22] [Crystal] Mesanna says: Pandora welcome
[19:04:26] [Kyronix]: Good Evening Pandora
[19:04:32] [Pandora]: Hello my Dark one.
[19:04:42] [Mesanna]: Good evening
[19:05:06] [Pandora]: Well, my first feedback for you guys is that this system was a great idea….
[19:05:33] [Pandora]: I know Mes really wanted it to shine from her video at the 15th anniversary
[19:05:43] [Pandora]: But I think for some times now
[19:06:02] [Pandora]: you’ve been trying to mesh certain communities that do not traditionally mesh well
[19:06:23] [Pandora]: I felt this system was predominately created for RP’ers
[19:06:48] [Pandora]: but in adding the city buffs, it seemed to want to include the pvp’ers
[19:06:59] [Pandora]: and traditionally those two communities just do not get along
[19:07:07] [Pandora]: its the whole reason Trammel exists in the first place
[19:07:26] [Pandora]: I feel the governor system should be expanded to include Felucca
[19:07:34] [Pandora]: Let them have their own governor system
[19:07:42] [Pandora]: and let them have the city buffs
[19:07:53] [Pandora]: The two communities are just too basically different
[19:08:18] [Pandora]: We want to beautify the city, we want to have events that are based in the history of the cities
[19:08:28] [Pandora]: we want to expand the collections
[19:08:39] [Pandora]: like the zoo and the museum and the library
[19:08:44] [Pandora]: and none of those efforts
[19:08:46] [Pandora]: NONE
[19:09:02] [Pandora]: are taken into consideration by certain groups
[19:09:09] [Pandora]: all they want is their buff
[19:09:15] [Pandora]: because they create their templates
[19:09:16] [Pandora]: for pvp
[19:09:18] [Pandora]: based on them
[19:09:21] [Pandora]: period.
[19:09:37] [Pandora]: they dont care for any efforts that we do (the RP’ers) to bring that element to the city
[19:09:47] [Pandora]: and while all our events are open to all types of players
[19:09:54] [Pandora]: they just dont find that stuff fun
[19:09:57] [Pandora]: they want to go out and pvp
[19:10:03] [Pandora]: that’s their fun
[19:10:07] [Pandora]: so please
[19:10:13] [Pandora]: consider that
[19:10:20] [Pandora]: those two communities are DIFFERENT
[19:10:26] [Pandora]: they have different goals
[19:10:30] [Pandora]: different objectives
[19:10:35] [Pandora]: and i’d love to see Felucca be more
[19:10:43] [Pandora]: than just a place that we have exiled reds to
[19:10:49] [Pandora]: it should be FAR more than that
[19:10:56] [Pandora]: maybe I would enjoy pvp again
[19:11:00] [Pandora]: if there was more to it
[19:11:11] [Pandora]: but i urge to trhink about
[19:11:17] [Pandora]: giving felucca its own governor system
[19:11:28] [Pandora]: and letting trammel be more of the rp-focused governor system
[19:11:36] [Pandora]: will that stop griefers?
[19:11:45] [Pandora]: prob not… if someone REALLY wants to grief you
[19:11:47] [Pandora]: they will
[19:11:56] [Pandora]: but at least this separation will
[19:12:02] [Pandora]: not PROMOTE such things
[19:12:06] [Pandora]: the voting
[19:12:16] [Pandora]: should be 1 vote per account on ONE SHARD
[19:12:25] [Pandora]: the shard you have your house on
[19:12:33] [Pandora]: that’s your main shard
[19:12:40] [Pandora]: and if you play multiple shards
[19:12:43] [Pandora]: great
[19:12:57] [Pandora]: but to have it open up to x y z shards all over
[19:13:02] [Pandora]: just wasnt a good idea
[19:13:06] [Pandora]: it was far better before
[19:13:11] [Pandora]: when all my characters could vote
[19:13:15] [Pandora]: i feel the change was
[19:13:23] [Pandora]: too impulsive
[19:13:28] [Pandora]: because it actually promotes
[19:13:33] [Pandora]: people cross-shard voting
[19:13:40] [Pandora]: like we’re basically forced to do that
[19:13:44] [Pandora]: and what about ppl like me?
[19:13:52] [Pandora]: i have only ever played catskills
[19:13:55] [Pandora]: my whole UO life
[19:13:59] [Pandora]: I dont play other shard
[19:14:02] [Pandora]: therefore
[19:14:03] [Pandora]: guess what
[19:14:12] [Pandora]: I am not as popular as others that do
[19:14:25] [Pandora]: so its become a total popularity contest
[19:14:35] [Pandora]: its not about what you can do for your city
[19:14:39] [Pandora]: its about how many people you know
[19:14:40] [Pandora]: :(
[19:14:46] [Mesanna]: its politics
[19:15:05] [Pandora]: And that’s right… it is…
[19:15:18] [Pandora]: and if I paid $15/mo to be an US Citizen to vote
[19:15:30] [Pandora]: then that would be equivalent
[19:15:32] [Pandora]: but this is a game
[19:15:36] [Pandora]: that we all subscribe to
[19:15:40] [Pandora]: and pay for
[19:15:48] [Pandora]: we dont want to pay money to be griefed or
[19:15:52] [Pandora]: have it be unfair
[19:15:57] [Pandora]: or even percieved as unfair
[19:16:01] [Pandora]: again
[19:16:09] [Mesanna]: Ok Pandora how were you griefed
[19:16:09] [Pandora]: i think felucca should be looked at more
[19:16:31] [Pandora]: Well what I percieved as griefed is the personal attacks on my character
[19:16:37] [Pandora]: on my moral standing
[19:16:59] [Pandora]: being called names or being told that my only job is to PAY for a city buff
[19:17:07] [Pandora]: I see that as griefed
[19:17:19] [Pandora]: griefing is anything that makes you feel a certain way
[19:17:25] [Pandora]: it causes grief
[19:17:30] [Pandora]: i felt nothing I did
[19:17:36] [Pandora]: was worth anything
[19:17:48] [Pandora]: it was just about paying $2 mil a week for a buff
[19:17:54] [Pandora]: expected to pay that out of my own pocket
[19:18:15] [Pandora]: it was just my first term, i didnt know what it was going to be like…
[19:18:30] [Pandora]: hell for ever my friend was governor of another city and we didnt even know
[19:18:34] [Pandora]: a guideline
[19:18:44] [Pandora]: on what the EM’s could or could not provide
[19:18:50] [Pandora]: it was SOOOOOO drastically different
[19:18:56] [Pandora]: from one shard to the other
[19:19:05] [Mesanna]: ok
[19:19:14] [Pandora]: For the longest we didnt know what the system was really about
[19:19:15] [Mesanna]: lets stick to the topic on hand here please
[19:19:19] [Pandora]: k
[19:19:49] [Mesanna]: so to sum up your issues
[19:19:59] [Mesanna]: you want Fel incorportated
[19:20:14] [Pandora]: I do… with its own system, with the city buffs moved there
[19:20:35] [Mesanna]: well I was going to wait till the end but I will say this now
[19:20:57] [Mesanna]: fel is not even under Blackthorns ruling so thats going to be hard under the new PVP system …
[19:21:02] [Mesanna]: that will be in place in the future
[19:21:25] [Mesanna]: we want it out of towns not putting things back into the towns
[19:21:51] [Mesanna]: one vote per account per shard?
[19:22:17] [Mesanna]: Is that right?
[19:22:22] [Mesanna]: sorry taking notes
[19:22:32] [Pandora]: more like lock an account once a vote is cast to that shard
[19:23:00] [Pandora]: or if it is as Kyronix mentioned before tied to the housing database
[19:23:08] [Pandora]: maybe that might be something to explore too
[19:23:16] [Pandora]: vote on the shard where your house is
[19:23:18] [Mesanna]: Different systems
[19:23:21] [Pandora]: ok
[19:23:49] [Pandora]: kyro mentioned something about it would have to be similar to that database (something to that
[19:23:53] [Pandora]: effect).
[19:24:01] [Pandora]: because housing is locked to 1 shard
[19:24:16] [Pandora]: not that they are same systems but that its similar in tha tsense
[19:24:27] [Mesanna]: Pandora please finish up
[19:24:31] [Pandora]: k
[19:24:36] [Mesanna]: no thats not going to work
[19:24:37] [Pandora]: Okay.
[19:24:47] [Crystal] Kyronix says: *nods*
[19:25:03] [Pandora]: Okay
[19:25:03] [Crystal] Pandora says: Okay
[19:25:35] [Crystal] Kyronix says: Thank you for your feedback
[19:25:52] [Mesanna]: Thanks sorry finishing the notes
[19:26:11] [Mesanna]: hi Timothy
[19:26:14] [Crystal] Timothy Taterson says: Greetings
[19:26:14] [Crystal] Kyronix says: Welcome Timothy
[19:26:22] [Mesanna]: lets keep this to a few minutes ok
[19:26:28] [Crystal] Timothy Taterson says: Governor Smoot has sent me on his behalf
[19:26:29] [Mesanna]: so everyone gets a chance to talk
[19:26:37] [Mesanna]: I saw him outside
[19:26:46] [Crystal] Timothy Taterson says: he welcomes everyone to the city of Britain, and extends
[19:27:01] [Crystal] Timothy Taterson says: the office of Britain to the Dark Lady
[19:27:14] [Crystal] Timothy Taterson says: you are at his disposal
[19:27:27] [Crystal] Timothy Taterson says: I will keep this brief
[19:27:34] [Timothy Taterson]: (OOC)
[19:27:45] [Timothy Taterson]: The system is popular with RPers
[19:28:02] [Timothy Taterson]: and to alot of RPers 2mil a week is alot
[19:28:11] [Timothy Taterson]: i see no reason for a gold charge for a city buff
[19:28:36] [Timothy Taterson]: smaller shards would make use of it more if it were no charge
[19:28:44] [Timothy Taterson]: in regards to voting
[19:28:55] [Timothy Taterson]: 1 voter per account or otherwise
[19:29:23] [Timothy Taterson]: please keep things simple. there are always people who will prepare, see what it takes to have an
[19:29:31] [Timothy Taterson]: advantage in any system
[19:30:00] [Timothy Taterson]: please keep in mind that any change, if there is any advatage, people will find it
[19:30:15] [Timothy Taterson]: just please keep the system open to all
[19:30:37] [Timothy Taterson]: and not just those with 20 -50 accounts who take advatage of any given voting changes
[19:30:48] [Timothy Taterson]: To conclude
[19:30:59] [Timothy Taterson]: Politics in a video game…
[19:31:12] [Timothy Taterson]: is sure to make many unhappy
[19:31:25] [Timothy Taterson]: its can be a brutal combo
[19:31:46] [Timothy Taterson]: i would expect those running for governor to accept this
[19:31:54] [Timothy Taterson]: a bit moreso than normal gameplay
[19:32:15] [Timothy Taterson]: Governor Smoot did everything in his power to run a clean campaign
[19:32:35] [Timothy Taterson]: And Commends all the Governors that try to do the same
[19:32:39] [Timothy Taterson]: that is all
[19:32:46] [Kyronix]: Thank you Timothy
[19:32:48] [Mesanna]: thank you
[19:32:51] [Crystal] Timothy Taterson says: *nods*
[19:32:56] [Mesanna]: Kyronix
[19:33:10] [Kyronix]: Yes?
[19:33:22] [Mesanna]: You want to say something before we pull more
[19:33:35] [Kyronix]: Ya sure, let me talk about the trade deal real quick
[19:33:45] [Kyronix]: To keep it short, because I know a lot of people want to have a chance to speak
[19:34:06] [Kyronix]: You have to examine the cost based on the reality of the economy as it is
[19:34:20] [Kyronix]: Is 2 mil a lot for one person? Some yes, some no – however it was never intended for one perso
[19:34:30] [Kyronix]: To carry that burden, and we’ve seen that has become the case in many instances
[19:34:44] [Kyronix]: So instead of just dropping the cost, what we’d rather do is provide more tools
[19:34:53] [Kyronix]: For Governors and their citizens to take advantage of so they can fund their cities
[19:35:00] [Kyronix]: and the treasuries in novel and exciting ways
[19:35:27] [Kyronix]: That’s about the jist of it
[19:35:28] [Mesanna]: thanks
[19:35:29] [Crystal] Kyronix says: *grins*
[19:35:37] [Mesanna]: nice and short I love it
[19:35:39] [Mesanna]: next
[19:35:49] [Kyronix]: Hello Jon
[19:35:51] [Jon Marcus]: Good evening Messana and Kyronix.Thank for for holding this meeting.
[19:35:54] [Mesanna]: hi Jon
[19:36:02] [Jon Marcus]: Mine will also be short
[19:36:08] [Crystal] Mesanna says: *smiles*
[19:36:21] [Jon Marcus]: I would like to make a request that you change the “one accout–one vote+ rule
[19:36:46] [Mesanna]: do you mean make it so?
[19:36:51] [Jon Marcus]: I vote in Skara,but I also have another character that is very fond of Jhelom
[19:37:02] [Jon Marcus]: I had to make a decision on which city to vote in
[19:37:06] [Jon Marcus]: But…
[19:37:14] [Mesanna]: oh I see what you mean
[19:37:38] [Jon Marcus]: In allowing this,I would suggest that one account would be allowed to vote in the same city more t
[19:37:41] [Jon Marcus]: than pnce
[19:37:53] [Jon Marcus]: than once
[19:38:07] [Jon Marcus]: Thank you
[19:38:11] [Kyronix]: Thank you Jon
[19:38:17] [Mesanna]: your welcome thank you for coming
[19:38:28] [Jon Marcus]: thanks
[19:38:30] [Mesanna]: dbl click the bell
[19:38:46] [Mesanna]: Hi Bardo
[19:38:49] [Bardo]: Hi mesana
[19:38:54] [Kyronix]: Hello Bardo
[19:38:57] [Mesanna]: No one can spell my name!
[19:39:03] [Bardo]: I would like to say jsut 2 things please
[19:39:07] [Bardo]: o srry
[19:39:09] [Mesanna]: ok
[19:39:21] [Bardo]: First I agree with Jon
[19:39:39] [Bardo]: we could make its so one account could vote in 2 cities
[19:39:48] [Bardo]: that would be fair I think
[19:39:52] [Bardo]: and ..
[19:40:09] [Bardo]: I dont know what pandoras box said all of anyway
[19:40:18] [Bardo]: but not allowing pvprs to
[19:40:33] [Bardo]: get buffs.. I dont agree. some of us have pvpr
[19:40:42] [Bardo]: and play the rp side .,
[19:40:48] [Bardo]: so I dont find that fair
[19:40:54] [Bardo]: taht is all thank you
[19:40:58] [Mesanna]: Thank you
[19:41:00] [Kyronix]: Thank you Bardo
[19:41:22] [Aron Unrequited]: Thank you for your time
[19:41:23] [Kyronix]: Hello Aron
[19:41:29] [Mesanna]: hi Aron
[19:41:39] [Aron Unrequited]: I have one request, and one general comment
[19:42:03] [Aron Unrequited]: The request first, as it doesn’t need an answer as such
[19:42:25] [Aron Unrequited]: But the councils I attend tend to be well behaved, and you can see similar here tonight
[19:42:31] [Aron Unrequited]: Why, we even queue decently!
[19:43:07] [Aron Unrequited]: The fear of the Dark Lady perhaps; hence as a connected request, it would be nice to see that at wider events
[19:43:39] [Aron Unrequited]: Greater powers to squelch etc, I’m not sure, but the things that work for the Council have made roleplay in particular so much stronger
[19:44:03] [Aron Unrequited]: But, my question about it directly;
[19:44:30] [Aron Unrequited]: I play Europa, there’s a question on Stratics about running for a Governer spot that’s still open
[19:44:37] [Mesanna]: ok how is this related to the issue we are here tonight?
[19:44:47] [Aron Unrequited]: Could there be some clarification on how players can do that?
[19:45:19] [Mesanna]: is there is an opening
[19:45:28] [Aron Unrequited]: On Jhelom yes
[19:45:42] [Mesanna]: email me and I will discuss Europa with you
[19:45:51] [Mesanna]: this is not the place tonight
[19:45:55] [Aron Unrequited]: I ask because it will be open on many shards
[19:46:11] [Mesanna]: this is about an issue on Cats
[19:46:20] [Mesanna]: not an open forums for any issue
[19:46:21] [Mesanna]: sorry
[19:46:25] [Aron Unrequited]: Oh? I thought it was for Governors in general, I’m sorry
[19:46:30] [Mesanna]: no its not
[19:46:31] [Aron Unrequited]: Then I shall bell myself out
[19:46:36] [Aron Unrequited]: Thank you again
[19:46:37] [Mesanna]: no problem email me
[19:46:42] [Kyronix]: Thank You
[19:46:57] [Aornis of GL]: Good evening, Mesanna, Kyronix. Thank you for holding this open forum.
[19:47:01] [Mesanna]: Hi Aornix
[19:47:02] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[19:47:05] [Aornis of GL]: I am Aornis, also Alice, of Great Lakes, the current governor of Vesper.
[19:47:13] [Aornis of GL]: I came here tonight to discuss what happened during last week’s election on Great Lakes.
[19:47:25] [Aornis of GL]: Specifically, I want to discuss the Britain election.
[19:47:33] [Aornis of GL]: The current, and previous, governor of Brit was griefed, and I feel that the actions of
[19:47:43] [Aornis of GL]: the individual who did so should have ramifications.
[19:47:52] [Mesanna]: Stop guys
[19:47:56] [Mesanna]: I am sorry
[19:48:02] [Mesanna]: one second
[19:48:10] [Mesanna]: This meeting is about Catskills
[19:48:22] [Mesanna]: They are having an issue
[19:48:23] [Aornis of GL]: I apologize. From what I read of FLutter’s message on stratics
[19:48:34] [Aornis of GL]: it was for all greifing issues during elections
[19:48:38] [Mesanna]: and asked for a meeting with us to discuss it
[19:48:56] [Mesanna]: we will be more than happy to come to your shards and speak to you guys
[19:48:57] [Aornis of GL]: May we request a GL meeting as well?
[19:49:04] [Mesanna]: yes be happy to
[19:49:06] [Aornis of GL]: Please.
[19:49:08] [Aornis of GL]: Thank you!
[19:49:11] [Mesanna]: we will set it up
[19:49:14] [Mesanna]: but know this
[19:49:19] [Aornis of GL]: Wonderful, thank you so much.
[19:49:44] [Mesanna]: as I answered in email this
[19:49:51] [Mesanna]: we do not have unique names
[19:50:05] [Mesanna]: if a player is harrassing you then the bouncer behind me
[19:50:10] [Mesanna]: will take care of it
[19:50:15] [Mesanna]: he is very good at his job
[19:50:18] [Brutrin]: Indeed
[19:50:20] [Aornis of GL]: I have a point about the names, but I will share it on our GL meetings
[19:50:25] [Mesanna]: ok
[19:50:25] [Aornis of GL]: and he does look intimidating : )
[19:50:28] [Mesanna]: lol
[19:50:31] [Mesanna]: pretty huh
[19:50:37] [Aornis of GL]: Hehe, yes
[19:50:41] [Mesanna]: I am not trying to be rude here
[19:50:45] [Mesanna]: I am sorry Aornis
[19:50:49] [Mesanna]: we will set up a meeting
[19:50:53] [Aornis of GL]: Thank you for your time. And again, I apologize for the confusioin about the topics.
[19:51:19] [Mesanna]: oh I have two now
[19:51:23] [Mesanna]: nice
[19:51:24] [Aornis of GL]: hehe

[19:53:14] [Crystal] Kyronix says: *smiles*
[19:53:27] [General chaos]: ok anyway
[19:53:45] [General chaos]: i was on the night during the last day to vote
[19:53:59] [General chaos]: and there was alot bashing
[19:54:05] [General chaos]: typical for general chat
[19:54:20] [General chaos]: i cant quote anyone to much extent
[19:54:25] [General chaos]: but i do remeber
[19:54:37] [General chaos]: that someone not giving any names
[19:54:45] [General chaos]: made a character
[19:54:51] [General chaos]: skankilicous
[19:55:04] [General chaos]: and called pandora a skank
[19:55:12] [General chaos]: and i did confront them
[19:55:27] [General chaos]: and they just ignored me and then it exploded in general chat
[19:55:28] [Mesanna]: thats what the harrassment feature is for
[19:55:42] [General chaos]: yes but that feature doesnt work
[19:55:55] [Mesanna]: ?

[19:56:40] [Mesanna]: and you won’t see a GM for that type of call
[19:57:06] [General chaos]: i understand people trash talk
[19:57:08] [General chaos]: its a game
[19:57:27] [General chaos]: but breaking peoples morals and stuff like ive seen
[19:57:34] [Mesanna]: General I am trying to get to the bottom of the issue here
[19:57:37] [General chaos]: uncalled for
[19:57:42] [Mesanna]: agreed
[19:57:46] [General chaos]: aye
[19:57:51] [Mesanna]: we are supposed to be adults

[19:59:13] [Mesanna]: hi Parnoc
[19:59:22] [Parnoc]: Good Evening
[19:59:25] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[19:59:34] [Parnoc]: i just have a comment that i think may help
[19:59:55] [Parnoc]: I feel that this was done to make the cities more visited
[20:00:02] [Parnoc]: but it has done the opposite
[20:00:07] [Parnoc]: i feel that is
[20:00:08] [Parnoc]: if
[20:00:18] [Parnoc]: the buff were decided by each citizen
[20:01:52] [Parnoc]: it would not make the person switch his city that he has been loyal to for
[20:01:56] [Parnoc]: perhaps a long time
[20:02:15] [Parnoc]: and would make much more popular the city buff and loyalty for each city
[20:02:39] [Parnoc]: that’s it, thank you very much
[20:02:49] [Mesanna]: thank you
[20:02:53] [Kyronix]: Thank You
[20:03:00] [Mesanna]: hi Lucent
[20:03:03] [Lucent Dreher]: Hello
[20:03:06] [Kyronix]: Hello Lucent
[20:03:10] [Lucent Dreher]: I’d like to keep this short
[20:03:14] [Lucent Dreher]: as many are waiting
[20:03:23] [Lucent Dreher]: so excuse abruptness
[20:03:35] [Crystal] Mesanna says: *nods*
[20:03:49] [Lucent Dreher]: I feel that most people do not agree that the city system is for rpers and that it is useful to
[20:03:52] [Lucent Dreher]: all
[20:04:25] [Lucent Dreher]: I also would like to know exactly what the problem on catskills was
[20:04:33] [Mesanna]: me too
[20:04:40] [Mesanna]: I have heard many things
[20:04:41] [Lucent Dreher]: The election might have been a bit heated but it couldn’t be the worst
[20:04:46] [Mesanna]: but I hoped to hear it first hand
[20:04:54] [Mesanna]: but I haven’t
[20:05:11] [Lucent Dreher]: Sorry that’s about it
[20:05:17] [Lucent Dreher]: cya
[20:05:18] [Mesanna]: thank you
[20:05:28] [Mesanna]: hi Velvathos
[20:05:36] [Mesanna]: stop
[20:05:41] [Velvathos]: Greetings!
[20:05:44] [Kyronix]: Sorry!
[20:05:46] [Kyronix]: Wrong button
[20:06:00] [Velvathos]: Interestin’ look ye have there Mesanna, been bathing in charcoal again?
[20:06:15] [Velvathos]: Anyways!
[20:06:38] [Velvathos]: Onto the discussion! I believe voting
[20:06:40] [Mesanna]: you better be glad my slay button stalled out =P
[20:07:05] [Velvathos]: I believe that voting should be done once per shard somehow, like someone else suggested
[20:07:14] [Velvathos]: Tied to your house or something along the lines
[20:07:30] [Velvathos]: But I feel you should be able to use all your characters to vote to vote in multiple cities
[20:07:37] [Velvathos]: But only on one shard
[20:08:25] [Velvathos]: I believe that’s all for now then..
[20:08:30] [Velvathos]: I will send you an e-mail..
[20:08:32] [Mesanna]: thank you
[20:08:36] [Mesanna]: ok
[20:08:49] [Mesanna]: hi Brigantia
[20:09:05] [Brigantia]: Could we please have some way of earning lockdowns for our events? A tool with limited time set?
[20:09:19] [Brigantia]: Something that is not subject to the whims of EM’s?
[20:09:28] [Brigantia]: Spread out to all the cities?
[20:09:57] [Mesanna]: For what purpose?
[20:10:02] [Brigantia]: Events
[20:10:07] [Brigantia]: to combat griefers
[20:10:16] [Brigantia]: so they dont run off with all our decor
[[20:10:22] [Brigantia]: and ruin our events
[20:10:25] [Mesanna]: you mean like the market
[20:10:33] [Mesanna]: or a crafting center
[20:10:34] [Mesanna]: etc
[20:10:36] [Brigantia]: no like the Hoopla
[20:10:45] [Brigantia]: only Governors can do it
[20:11:01] [Mesanna]: ok so Kyronix and the team have talked about this
[20:11:07] [Brigantia]: something not subject to the whim of EMs
[20:11:09] [Mesanna]: and we talked to the EM’s
[20:11:37] [Brigantia]: something we can earn
[20:12:14] [Brigantia]: so its not just given out to 3 cites of 9 for example
[20:12:28] [Mesanna]: we are going to build a library of the areas
[20:12:40] [Mesanna]: that the governs can place for a limited time
[20:12:47] [Mesanna]: in specific areas
[20:12:57] [Mesanna]: but giving you the options to lock down items
[20:13:17] [Brigantia]: that will help greatly
[20:13:36] [Mesanna]: I think that will help you guys alot
[20:13:40] [Mesanna]: do the events you want to do
[20:13:47] [Mesanna]: and you can place them yourselfs
[20:13:56] [Mesanna]: and place the styles of set ups you want
[20:14:21] [Mesanna]: but thats in the future
[20:14:27] [Brigantia]: it will help with greifers and percieved favoritism
[20:14:40] [Brigantia]: i may consider running again if that is in place
[20:14:43] [Brigantia]: thank you
[20:14:50] [Mesanna]: your welcome
[20:14:52] [Mesanna]: thanks you
[20:14:55] [Mesanna]: thank you
[20:15:05] [Mesanna]: Poo Poo
[20:15:09] [Mesanna]: Hi
[20:15:13] [Kyronix]: Hello
[20:15:18] [Poo Poo Undies]: Hello
[20:15:23] [Crystal] Poo Poo Undies says: Are there any plans on the table to expand the role of the governorship…
[20:15:31] [Crystal] Poo Poo Undies says: or to provide a purpose to encourage players to interact with their town governor?
[20:15:40] [Crystal] Poo Poo Undies says: aside from the town buff.
[20:15:46] [Kyronix]: I think people are already doing that
[20:15:50] [Kyronix]: On a number of shards
[20:16:03] [Kyronix]: It’s about what you make it – we left i open ended for a reason
[20:16:06] [Poo Poo Undies]: Outside of roleplay?
[20:16:38] [Kyronix]: The main purpose is to provide a medium for interacting with events throughout the realm
[20:16:47] [Kyronix]: And bringing community leaders together and supporting them
[20:17:01] [Poo Poo Undies]: Ok. That is all I have to ask
[20:17:07] [Poo Poo Undies]: Thank you
[20:17:17] [Kyronix]: providing tools to accomplish that would be along the lines of something beyond the buff
[20:17:23] [Kyronix]: Thank you
[20:18:27] [Mesanna]: hi Aurelius
[20:18:29] [Aurelius]: Thank you for the chance to speak on Governor issues, i’ll try be brief…
[20:18:56] [Aurelius]: First I agree with most of what Pandora gave as reasons againt sht one vote per account, but ald
[20:19:23] [Aurelius]: I play characters, not accounts – by all means limit the account vote to one shard,
[20:19:42] [Aurelius]: but adding another gap between the player and the characters is not a good idea…
[20:20:04] [Aurelius]: It also led to an issue where someone appeared to stand on multiple – as in about 20 – shards
[20:20:23] [Aurelius]: As they were the only opponent to most governors they challenged, people were
[20:20:46] [Aurelius]: obliged to vote for that governor – only for the ‘pretender’ to withdraw a ady into the elections
[20:21:02] [Aurelius]: so effectively thos people lost any opportunity for a meaningful vote
[20:21:07] [Aurelius]: on their home shard.
[20:21:29] [Aurelius]: As for Felucca, and buffs … we do need something for the Fel people …
[20:21:44] [Aurelius]: As it stands, the Trammel only option is causing more divisiveness between the
[20:21:57] [Aurelius]: two groups of players, hwich surely can’t be the intention…
[20:22:07] [Aurelius]: A different, but parralel, system would be welcome.
[20:22:28] [Aurelius]: Regarding voting being ‘politics’ … yes, it is, in part
[20:22:45] [Aurelius]: but when it’s made cross shard polularity, it’s not in-game, shard specific, politics,..
[20:22:52] [Aurelius]: and again, surely that is not what is intended?
[20:23:18] [Aurelius]: The other thigns I had planned to say, seem inappropriate as I had
[20:23:34] [Aurelius]: uinderstood from theforums this was a general ‘Governor’s issues’ duiscussion …
[20:23:51] [Aurelius]: Perhaps we can arrange such a general, not shard specific, conversation in some way?
[20:23:57] [Aurelius]: And that’s about it ….
[20:24:03] [Mesanna]: thank you
[20:24:09] [Aurelius]: Thank you for your time
[20:24:12] [Kyronix]: Thank you!

[20:26:59] [Mesanna]: hi Va’lis
[20:27:01] [Kyronix]: Hello Va’lis
[20:27:06] [Va’lis Razele]: Good evening.
[20:27:10] [Va’lis Razele]: Where to start where to start…
[20:27:27] [Va’lis Razele]: Well first…if you arent doing anything after this Mesanna…I know a lovely tavern in Nu’jelm
[20:27:39] [Va’lis Razele]: But that is besides the point
[20:27:40] [Mesanna]: asking me for a date?
[20:27:47] [Va’lis Razele]: Are you saying yes?
[20:27:59] [Mesanna]: we will talk later *winks*
[20:28:06] [Va’lis Razele]: Oh lovely.
[20:28:16] [Va’lis Razele]: Now, down to business
[20:28:27] [Va’lis Razele]: I have a few points I would like to bring up.
[20:28:38] [Va’lis Razele]: First… The griefing issues.
[20:28:53] [Va’lis Razele]: I was there for much of the final day of elections.
[20:29:16] [Va’lis Razele]: And to say it was heated well..
[20:29:35] [Va’lis Razele]: Name calling is one thing.
[20:29:46] [Va’lis Razele]: Some things were taken past that.
[20:29:50] [Va’lis Razele]: Such as this
[20:30:05] [Va’lis Razele]: One of many dropped throughout the towns
[20:30:34] [Va’lis Razele]: But.
[20:30:45] [Va’lis Razele]: People seemed very upset
[20:30:53] [Va’lis Razele]: About people using multiple accounts
[20:30:56] [Va’lis Razele]: That they pay for
[20:30:59] [Mesanna]: look at general chat please
[20:31:01] [Va’lis Razele]: To vote how they wished.
[20:31:37] [Mesanna]: Va’lis I am aware of all this and more actually
[20:31:40] [Mesanna]: but thank you
[20:31:43] [Va’lis Razele]: Ah lovely.
[20:31:50] [Va’lis Razele]: Second thing then.
[20:31:54] [Mesanna]: I did come informed
[20:32:00] [Va’lis Razele]: I am glad.
[20:32:17] [Va’lis Razele]: But…My next thing
[20:32:23] [Va’lis Razele]: Was on the topic of voting?
[20:32:44] [Va’lis Razele]: In RL, voting is restricted to those of age
[20:33:23] [Va’lis Razele]: Even gifts are restricted to those of age.
[20:33:29] [Va’lis Razele]: Why is voting not as well?
[20:33:36] [Va’lis Razele]: Just a thought.
[20:33:51] [Va’lis Razele]: And one final thing.
[20:34:02] [Mesanna]: Are you talking 30 days old?
[20:34:08] [Va’lis Razele]: 30,60,a year
[20:34:09] [Mesanna]: do you really think that would help?
[20:34:10] [Va’lis Razele]: Something
[20:34:14] [Va’lis Razele]: I think it would help
[20:34:15] [Va’lis Razele]: Yes
[20:34:23] [Va’lis Razele]: Now..I know..
[20:34:32] [Va’lis Razele]: That some would treat is they do with the gift xsharding
[20:34:39] [Va’lis Razele]: But it would help a bit.
[20:34:59] [Va’lis Razele]: I saw a few trial accounts opened
[20:35:04] [Va’lis Razele]: The young status dropped
[20:35:09] [Va’lis Razele]: Ingots donated
[20:35:12] [Va’lis Razele]: And they voted
[20:35:12] [Kyronix]: You can’t vote with a trial account
[20:35:23] [Va’lis Razele]: If they purchase the 1 month game time
[20:35:23] [Mesanna]: Brutrin you there?
[20:35:24] [Va’lis Razele]: They can.
[20:35:28] [Va’lis Razele]: I have in the past done it.
[20:35:35] [Va’lis Razele]: I admit it, I have.
[20:35:42] [Va’lis Razele]: Not for the most recent election
[20:35:45] [Va’lis Razele]: But in the past.
[20:35:55] [Kyronix]: At that point they have paid for their time just as anyone has
[20:35:55] [Mesanna]: Please divorce that person please
[20:36:11] [Va’lis Razele]: Then why are gifts not allowed instantly as well?
[20:36:21] [Va’lis Razele]: Merely my thoughts on the matter in regard to voting.
[20:36:30] [Kyronix]: We appreciate the feedback
[20:36:32] [Mesanna]: tell him to just change the name please
[20:36:34] [Va’lis Razele]: Last thing
[20:36:46] [Va’lis Razele]: The whole buff issue
[20:37:11] [Va’lis Razele]: I am one that agrees , that maybe the buffs should not be tied to the governorship
[20:37:21] [Va’lis Razele]: But maybe to the guild system
[20:37:27] [Va’lis Razele]: With a guild treasury
[20:37:56] [Va’lis Razele]: After all
[20:38:04] [Va’lis Razele]: Some players have their own towns
[20:38:13] [Va’lis Razele]: Or other things
[20:38:15] [Mesanna]: thank you Va’lis that they do
[20:38:25] [Va’lis Razele]: I think that is all I have.
[20:38:33] [Mesanna]: thank you
[20:38:34] [Va’lis Razele]: And Mesanna, I will be waiting for your answer.
[20:38:37] [Crystal] Va’lis Razele says: *winks*
[20:38:40] [Crystal] Mesanna says: *grins*
[20:38:47] [Gareth]: Man handle me
[20:38:49] [Mesanna]: Hi Gareth
[20:38:52] [Kyronix]: Hello Gareth
[20:38:52] [Gareth]: ‘Ello
[20:38:56] [Gareth]: I have some suggestions to deal with “Outer Shard Voter Fraud”
[20:39:05] [Gareth]: and this is coming from an owner of 26 Active UO Accounts
[20:39:11] [Gareth]: A way to deal with Outer Shard Voter Fraud during elections is to have each vote drain
[20:39:13] [Gareth]: your Characters Loyalty to say negative -10,000. This way the player would have to put
[20:39:20] [Gareth]: in the effort to build their rating back up to vote in every election. You could also cap
[20:39:29] [Gareth]: the amount of Ingots, Wood Etc. you can donate to gain Loyalty. This would also put a
[20:39:36] [Gareth]: wrench in the scripters machine so they can no longer mine unlimited sources of Loyalty.
[20:39:43] [Gareth]: This would not negatively impact players who regularly play on the shard or those who
[20:39:50] [Gareth]: play on Multiple shards because if they truly play the shard
[20:39:53] [Gareth]: building their Loyalty Rating back up should be no problem.
[20:39:56] [Crystal] Gareth says: *Takes a breath*
[20:40:05] [Gareth]: And last, I’d like to call for a Producers election and wish to submit my candidacy
[20:40:08] [Mesanna]: macro that did ya?
[20:40:14] [Gareth]: Ctrl C V
[20:40:16] [Gareth]: :-)
[20:40:23] [Kyronix]: Heh
[20:40:38] [Gareth]: One day… *Shakes fist* One day
[20:40:55] [Mesanna]: have a nice day
[20:41:04] [Gareth]: I will
[20:41:11] [Gareth]: you too Krynoix
[20:41:17] [Crystal] Gareth says: *Evil eyes*
[20:41:30] [Kyronix]: Have a good one, enjoy!
[20:41:31] [Gareth]: You may man handle me out of here now
[20:41:40] [Mesanna]: you can do that yourself
[20:41:43] [Mesanna]: dbl click the bell
[20:41:53] [Mesanna]: hi Wildstar
[20:41:55] [WildStar of Baja]: Hello
[20:41:57] [Kyronix]: Hello WildStar
[20:42:06] [WildStar of Baja]: First
[20:42:24] [WildStar of Baja]: I think voting is already resisted to one vote per shard per vote
[20:42:40] [WildStar of Baja]: I think Pandora meant one vote per account
[20:42:57] [WildStar of Baja]: Second
[20:43:18] [WildStar of Baja]: Role-players and PvPers don’t have to be at each others throats
[20:43:32] [WildStar of Baja]: On baja, several PvP guild were providing the funds for the deals
[20:43:45] [WildStar of Baja]: so the two groups can work together
[20:44:12] [WildStar of Baja]: that was all I had to say
[20:44:20] [Kyronix]: Thank You
[20:44:20] [Mesanna]: thank you
[20:44:32] [Mesanna]: Hi Aedon
[20:44:36] [Kyronix]: Hello Aedon
[20:44:47] [Aedon Durreah]: Evening Mesanna and things who scare me
[20:44:54] [Stethun]: Roar and such.
[20:44:56] [Mesanna]: lol
[20:45:07] [Mesanna]: my pretties
[20:45:16] [Crystal] Mesanna says: *snickers*
[20:45:16] [Aedon Durreah]: First off, I have not seen any true devide in the community I am a part of,
[20:45:36] [Aedon Durreah]: I have dealings with those who sit in taverns and those why wild wildly through the old lands
[20:45:55] [Aedon Durreah]: This election showed that coming together
[20:46:04] [Aedon Durreah]: We had candidates from all walks
[20:46:17] [Aedon Durreah]: Was there some mud slinging, most likely
[20:46:38] [Aedon Durreah]: I myself dropped leaflets telling voters how untrustworthy I am
[20:46:44] [Aedon Durreah]: And yet, I did win
[20:46:52] [Mesanna]: lol
[20:47:00] [Mesanna]: I am sorry
[20:47:00] [Kyronix]: I guess that’s one way to do it
[20:47:03] [Aedon Durreah]: I have also had folks from all walks call me names
[20:47:04] [Mesanna]: I shouldn’t laugh
[20:47:12] [Aedon Durreah]: indeed
[20:47:30] [Aedon Durreah]: And i could make a long list of insults and hurt feelings, but to what end?
[20:47:40] [Aedon Durreah]: Elections are dirty work
[20:47:53] [Aedon Durreah]: And not for those easily hurt or insulted
[20:48:19] [Aedon Durreah]: I have a lot of respect for what we are building in these lands
[20:48:28] [Mesanna]: You have made some very good points
[20:48:39] [Kyronix]: Indeed
[20:48:47] [Aedon Durreah]: And hope that no actions will be taken to disrupt the unity of the community at large
[20:49:01] [Mesanna]: thank you
[20:49:04] [Aedon Durreah]: Thank you for your time and not killing me
[20:49:09] [Kyronix]: Thank you Aedon
[20:49:10] [Mesanna]: I would not kill you
[20:49:16] [Mesanna]: I just enjoy killing Gareth
[20:49:23] [Crystal] Kyronix says: *snickers*
[20:49:23] [Mesanna]: Hi Flutter
[20:49:29] [Kyronix]: Hello Flutter
[20:49:31] [Flutter]: Hello Lady
[20:49:37] [Flutter]: And Hello Ladys minions
[20:49:44] [Flutter]: Im sorry this is taking so long
[20:49:50] [Flutter]: Id like to address a fact
[20:49:55] [Flutter]: with the audience
[20:50:07] [Flutter]: Mesanna has my permission though she doesnt need it im sure
[20:50:13] [Flutter]: to go through all of my accounts
[20:50:21] [Flutter]: and hunt down meanly named characters
[20:50:28] [Flutter]: that may hurt someones feelings
[20:50:48] [Flutter]: The Dark Lady has had my credit card information for months
[20:50:56] [Flutter]: certainly she is free to look at my accounts
[20:51:06] [Crystal] Mesanna says: *LAUGHS*
[20:51:13] [Crystal] Kyronix says: *chuckles*
[20:51:22] [Mesanna]: trusting soul
[20:51:24] [Flutter]: I have no “issues” and dont know why anyone would unless they are sensitive
[20:51:36] [Flutter]: I do understand some people are
[20:51:51] [Flutter]: And I do know that certian folk have blamed me for their “issues”
[20:52:03] [Flutter]: I assure you I have not encouraged anyone to be ugly
[20:52:11] [Flutter]: Aint nobody got time fo dat
[20:52:19] [Flutter]: But My Lady I beg of you
[20:52:28] [Flutter]: Dont limit our voting to once per shard period
[20:52:33] [Flutter]: I do play multiple shards
[20:52:44] [Flutter]: I do enjoy the company of many people herre and abroad
[20:52:59] [Flutter]: I do not believe there to be one person elected to Catskills
[20:53:04] [Flutter]: that does not role play in some way
[20:53:16] [Flutter]: be it insufficient for those with “issues” i cannot help that
[20:53:22] [Flutter]: some of us enjoy all apsects of the game
[20:53:36] [Flutter]: But to say that we are not a tignly knit community is wrong
[20:53:51] [Flutter]: Even I and the lovely Devin Ashley have mended fences
[20:53:54] [Flutter]: and if that is possible
[20:53:57] [Flutter]: all else is as well
[20:54:03] [Flutter]: But limiting votes
[20:54:07] [Flutter]: to once per account
[20:54:14] [Flutter]: only hurts the poor fellow with only one account
[20:54:17] [Flutter]: who wants to run
[20:54:32] [Flutter]: versus the grroup that has what has been called “70+”
[20:54:42] [Flutter]: its a lock in win for that person
[20:54:46] [Flutter]: and everyone
[20:54:51] [Flutter]: even the one with one account only
[20:54:54] [Flutter]: should have a chance
[20:54:56] [Flutter]: if they wish
[20:55:03] [Flutter]: Thank you so much for taking the time
[20:55:06] [Flutter]: to listen to everyone
[20:55:15] [Mesanna]: No problem
[20:55:22] [Kyronix]: Thank You Flutter
[20:55:22] [Flutter]: And I aologise if there was a misunderstanding as to what the conversation is supposed to be abou
[20:55:31] [Mesanna]: thank you
[20:55:33] [Flutter]: I hope whoever had the issue does come forward
[20:55:47] [Mesanna]: hi Thom
[20:55:52] [Kyronix]: Hello Thom
[20:55:54] [Thom]: Evening.
[20:56:26] [Thom]: I’m not sure what the specific complain was about this last election
[20:56:35] [Thom]: but i was around for most of the week of elections
[20:56:52] [Thom]: And I was watching the Britain election a good bit
[20:57:23] [Thom]: I’m sure there was more to it then what I saw
[20:57:44] [Thom]: but from what I saw people that were not running were causing the issues.
[20:57:48] [Thom]: Personally
[20:58:05] [Thom]: I feel that if you run for governor you open yourself up to a certain amount of comments
[20:58:16] [Thom]: And grief from other people
[20:58:29] [Thom]: And if you can not handle that in an appropriate manner
[20:58:48] [Thom]: then perhaps you can best benefit your chosen city in a way that doesn’t involve running for office.
[20:59:04] [Thom]: It doesn’t require the governor office to run events or better the cities, and people can work with
[20:59:08] [Thom]: the elected people to get things done.
[20:59:25] [Thom]: There isn’t a person elected on Catskills that i’m aware of that wouldn’t work with someone in their city
[20:59:38] [Thom]: To get things done
[21:00:22] [Thom]: The other thing
[21:00:31] [Thom]: That I wanted to say was about the trade deals
[21:02:02] [Thom]: I am looking forward to the things that you have mentioned tonight as coming to the system to help
[21:02:20] [Thom]: and feel that the deals benefit everyone equally whether they rp, pvp or strictly pvm
[21:02:47] [Thom]: The governor system does a good job of getting people involved in rp that wouldn’t normally
[21:02:55] [Thom]: participate in it. And that’s a good thing
[21:03:33] [Mesanna]: Thank you Thom
[21:03:39] [Thom]: Thank you.
[21:03:41] [Kyronix]: Thank you!
[21:03:45] [Thom]: For taking the time to listen to us.
[21:04:04] [Mesanna]: hi Shenzin
[21:04:11] [Shenzin]: Hello Mesanna and Kyronix, and thank you for this visit.
[21:04:16] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[21:04:35] [Shenzin]: I stand before you to speak to the voting
[21:04:57] [Shenzin]: I observed both the Vesper and Brit voting
[21:05:13] [Shenzin]: and the Vesper vote was ell handles
[21:05:18] [Shenzin]: handled
[21:05:23] [Shenzin]: but
[21:05:35] [Shenzin]: dear friends of Catskills
[21:05:50] [Shenzin]: I was ashamed of ghe Brit voting
[21:06:15] [Shenzin]: to watch newbie players come for who knows where
[21:06:37] [Shenzin]: and recieve ingots from a packy to gain voting rights?
[21:06:45] [Shenzin]: is dead wrong
[21:07:09] [Shenzin]: I hope I never witness this shamfulness again here
[21:07:27] [Shenzin]: I trust you wil addreess this
[21:07:38] [Shenzin]: thank you
[21:07:42] [Kyronix]: Thank You
[21:07:51] [Mesanna]: thank you
[21:07:59] [Mesanna]: hi Tobias
[21:08:04] [Tobias Cardont]: Hello.
[21:08:08] [Tobias Cardont]: And thank you.
[21:08:09] [Kyronix]: Hello
[21:08:19] [Tobias Cardont]: Just two sort of quick things
[21:08:42] [Tobias Cardont]: First, as a role-player, I’d like to think that role-playing is something that incorporates all kinds of playstyles.
[21:08:45] [Tobias Cardont]: PVP, PVM, etc.
[21:09:04] [Tobias Cardont]: I don’t think separate but equal is ever a good idea, and hope that approach isn’t adopted.
[21:09:21] [Tobias Cardont]: Second, I was watching the election here very closely.
[21:09:29] [Tobias Cardont]: Including in and out of game communications with both sides.
[21:09:40] [Tobias Cardont]: Both sides attacked credibility. Both sides recruited cross-shard voting.
[21:09:49] [Tobias Cardont]: They more or less used the same tactics.
[21:10:00] [Tobias Cardont]: And I don’t thin kthere’s anything wrong with that.
[21:10:11] [Tobias Cardont]: People should be free to use their accounts to vote how they wish.
[21:10:15] [Tobias Cardont]: We all pay money for them.
[21:10:34] [Tobias Cardont]: Lastly, when something is a big public spectacle.
[21:10:41] [Tobias Cardont]: A lot of people are going to come out of the woodwork.
[21:10:54] [Tobias Cardont]: I don’t think it’s fair to blame either side for everything that someone decided to say.
[21:11:09] [Tobias Cardont]: Some people enjoy griefing some people might have had an unrelated axe to grind with one of the candidates.
[21:11:25] [Tobias Cardont]: In general, I don’t really even understand the need for this meeting because I’ve seen worse elections in UO.
[21:11:32] [Tobias Cardont]: but I do appreciate you taking the time to organize this meeting.
[21:11:46] [Tobias Cardont]: And hope that it helps in the future.
[21:11:50] [Tobias Cardont]: Thanl you and that’s all.
[21:11:56] [Tobias Cardont]: Thank you even.
[21:12:05] [Mesanna]: Thank you
[21:12:29] [Tobias Cardont]: How do I escape?!
[21:12:30] [Mesanna]: Tobias dbl click the bell
[21:12:34] [Kyronix]: The Bell!
[21:12:35] [Tobias Cardont]: Thanks!
[21:12:40] [Mesanna]: hi Jac
[21:12:47] [Jac Singleton]: My Lady, My Lord, good Beasts…Good evening.
[21:12:52] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[21:12:58] [Jac Singleton]: i would like to tell you that this is going to be very brief,
[21:13:03] [Mesanna]: silent type =)
[21:13:06] [Jac Singleton]: so short in fact that you may not even realize that i have stopped speaking by the time this is
[21:13:16] [Jac Singleton]: but i wanted to be sure that you were well aware that i am a man of few words, and that I will
[21:13:22] [Jac Singleton]: keep my thoughts incredibly short…
[21:13:35] [Jac Singleton]: because i believe that if i keep my speech short, it will be better understood in a very quick mann
[21:13:39] [Jac Singleton]: er
[21:13:45] [Jac Singleton]: and to be concise, i want to remind you that i’ll be quick about this…
[21:13:53] [Jac Singleton]: thank you for this brief meeting…
[21:14:00] [Jac Singleton]: That being said…
[21:14:13] [Jac Singleton]: I wish to remind everyone that behaviors speak louder than words…
[21:14:21] [Jac Singleton]: and this in the end is purely entertainment.
[21:14:26] [Jac Singleton]: Thank you.
[21:14:31] [Mesanna]: thank you
[21:14:32] [Kyronix]: Thank You
[21:14:42] [Mesanna]: Hi I
[21:14:43] [I SUCK UP]: Hello
[21:14:44] [Kyronix]: Hello
[21:14:47] [I SUCK UP]: First Time Speaker, Long Time ULTIMA player
[21:14:53] [I SUCK UP]: I have just one question in 7 parts.
[21:14:54] [Mesanna]: welcome
[21:15:04] [I SUCK UP]: I’d just like to start off with saying; What a great job you have done in sept hold’s on Atlantic.
[21:15:12] [Mesanna]: thanks
[21:15:15] [I SUCK UP]: 1. Will there ever be a stop to one person being Governor on (X) number of shards
[21:15:22] [I SUCK UP]: Sorry 1min phone.
[21:15:32] [Mesanna]: excuse me
[21:15:43] [Mesanna]: we just got put on hold I think
[21:15:46] [Mesanna]: hrm
[21:15:56] [Crystal] Mesanna says: *looks at watch*
[21:16:25] [I SUCK UP]: sorry
[21:16:32] [Mesanna]: lol
[21:16:34] [I SUCK UP]: I have more inportant things
[21:16:42] [Mesanna]: ok
[21:16:48] [Mesanna]: hi James
[21:17:07] [James]: Hello! *Smiles cheerfully*
[21:17:40] [James]: Well, I don’t consider myself much of a citizen of any of the cities…I live in the Freehold.
[21:17:58] [James]: I did become a member of Yew though, so I could vote to make Aedon king.
[21:18:39] [James]: I was originally thinking of being part of Britain though, but none of the candidates I heard of
[21:18:49] [James]: Wanted to burn down the city.
[21:19:27] [James]: Which brings me to why I was standing in line, as I found out as I got near the front
[21:19:32] [James]: was to talk about voting.
[21:20:09] [James]: I never cared much for it, or took it too seriously..
[21:20:14] [Crystal] Kyronix says: *nom*
[21:20:40] [James]: I’m more in favor of having a king, duely chosen, by seeing which of possible royals
[21:21:19] [James]: would probibly complain the most if they didn’t get their way
[21:21:26] [James]: then you put them in charge so they’d stop it.
[21:21:46] [James]: That’s about all I have to say about voting.
[21:22:04] [James]: By the way, aren’t you the lady who made all those pies?
[21:22:16] [Mesanna]: Nope not me
[21:22:19] [Mesanna]: never
[21:22:20] [Kyronix]: Mesanna’s pie making skills are known throughout the realm
[21:22:25] [Kyronix]: She’s just being modest
[21:22:27] [Crystal] Kyronix says: *nods*
[21:22:40] [Kyronix]: Thank you James
[21:22:48] [Mesanna]: Thank you =)
[21:22:55] [James]: I like those pies, much better for throwing then most of the other ones.
[21:23:17] [Crystal] Mesanna says: *grins*
[21:23:42] [Mesanna]: dbl click the bell to escape
[21:23:51] [James]: Alright then
[21:23:57] [Mesanna]: thank you
[21:24:02] [Mesanna]: hi Tserim
[21:24:05] [Kyronix]: Hello
[21:24:08] [Tserim Arryth]: My lady!!
[21:24:14] [Tserim Arryth]: I must say, you are looking particularly evil today
[21:24:22] [Mesanna]: Why thank you
[21:24:24] [Tserim Arryth]: I have two comments and of course a humble suggestion
[21:24:32] [Mesanna]: compliments will get you everywhere!
[21:24:39] [Mesanna]: of course
[21:24:43] [Tserim Arryth]: Firstly, I caution against voting requirements rules which have been suggested
[21:24:55] [Tserim Arryth]: One vote per account, acount age, and so forth
[21:25:15] [Tserim Arryth]: There will always be a sense of unfairness in large elections
[21:25:26] [Tserim Arryth]: For there will always be someone with many accounts, or a lot of gold or a lot of friends
[21:25:38] [Tserim Arryth]: What matters, in the end, is that the governor does their job
[21:25:48] [Mesanna]: agreed
[21:25:49] [Tserim Arryth]: As I understand it, King Blackthorn has the authority to remove ineffective governors
[21:26:10] [Mesanna]: that he does
[21:26:17] [Tserim Arryth]: As for mud slinging, so long as all live within the rules of Sosaria, it matters little
[21:26:26] [Tserim Arryth]: I’ve wrestled bears with fouler mouths!
[21:26:32] [Tserim Arryth]: My second comment…
[21:26:51] [Tserim Arryth]: I feel that the governors bear too much of a burden with trade deals
[21:27:09] [Tserim Arryth]: I think that it help to find a way to spread the love of paying for these trade deals
[21:27:15] [Tserim Arryth]: But more importantly:?
[21:27:32] [Tserim Arryth]: Smaller shards with smaller populations, cannot so easily get these deals themselves
[21:27:59] [Tserim Arryth]: For this reason I think it might be better to have different costs for different deals
[21:28:21] [Tserim Arryth]: Or at least some way for smaller towns to access some kind of deal
[21:28:36] [Tserim Arryth]: Maybe the cost could scale to the number of citizens or the number of people that use the deal
[21:28:47] [Tserim Arryth]: Finally, my humble suggestion
[21:29:02] [Tserim Arryth]: There is an up and coming industry in these great lands of Britannia
[21:29:11] [Tserim Arryth]: I feel they are being left out of the city trade deals
[21:29:19] [Tserim Arryth]: I speak, of course, of the Donut Bakers Association.
[21:29:32] [Tserim Arryth]: I feel they have a lot to offer to the great cities of Britannia!
[21:29:37] [Kyronix]: Donuts are tasty
[21:29:43] [Tserim Arryth]: Yes!!
[21:29:58] [Tserim Arryth]: If there is one thing we need in these harrowing times, my lady, it’s more donuts
[21:30:09] [Mesanna]: wewill take that under advisement
[21:30:14] [Tserim Arryth]: I feel that the recent election could have avoided much of its drama with more donuts.
[21:30:22] [Mesanna]: I will see what we can do
[21:30:23] [Tserim Arryth]: In any case, that is all I have to say about that!
[21:30:32] [Kyronix]: Thank You
[21:30:32] [Tserim Arryth]: Toodles!
[21:30:36] [Mesanna]: thank you
[21:30:43] [Mesanna]: Hi Tazar
[21:30:47] [Kyronix]: Hello Tazar
[21:30:47] [Tazar]: Greetings My Lady,
[21:30:56] [Tazar]: I’ll try to keep this short:
[21:31:05] [Tazar]: Thank you for providing the governor’s system.
[21:31:20] [Tazar]: We all know that nothing is perfect, and that no matter how it is designed, someone will figure out ways to take advantage, etc.
[21:31:41] [Tazar]: But as a whole, I’d say the program has been a success.
[21:31:54] [Tazar]: Some have complained about what EM’s and/or you can or won’t do for them.
[21:32:06] [Tazar]: but it really boils down to what the Governor can do.
[21:32:19] [Tazar]: I was governor for 2 terms on Atlantic and had a great time with it.
[21:32:35] [Tazar]: As Governor, I hosted events, and I never really requested anything of the EM’s and never received anything
[21:32:51] [Tazar]: except King’s Guards attacking everyone near my house and killing all my neighbors… *grins*
[21:33:05] [Tazar]: But it was fun all the way through from start to finish.
[21:33:18] [Tazar]: I do however recommend Term Limits be it overall terms allowed, or consecutive terms.
[21:33:35] [Tazar]: This system should not really be dominated by a few but should be shared by all.
[21:33:52] [Tazar]: I, for one, appreciate the time you and your Dev/EM Team have put into this.
[21:34:04] [Tazar]: Like UO itself, you’ve added another level to the sandbox and left the system open for us to play with and take it where we will.
[21:34:23] [Tazar]: You can’t please everyone, but I think you all have done a great job.
[21:34:27] [Kyronix]: Thank You Tazar
[21:34:33] [Tazar]: Thank you.
[21:34:34] [Mesanna]: Thank you Tazar
[21:34:41] [Tazar]: Now…
[21:34:47] [Tazar]: Will you kill Flair for me?
[21:34:51] [Tazar]: <<<<<<<<<<< *grins*
[21:35:11] [Mesanna]: Flair has not said a word all night long =P
[21:35:17] [Kyronix]: Hello
[21:35:17] [Mesanna]: hi Kodoz
[21:35:23] [Kodoz]: Good evening to all four of you
[21:35:35] [Kodoz]: First I’d like to apologize for taking up your night this way, so I will try to be brief.
[21:35:50] [Kodoz]: Second, I’d like to say we all appreciate the fine jobs you do on a consistent basis for us
[21:36:08] [Kodoz]: Third, I’d like to say that I’ve heard and been witness to a lot of things with…
[21:36:20] [Kodoz]: These elections, and that there is one recurring theme that everything falls back to.
[21:36:31] [Kodoz]: What has been done to make them fair has been done, to my knowledge
[21:36:48] [Kodoz]: Short of insane measures that would be profoundly ridiculous to implement
[21:36:54] [Kodoz]: And incredibly time consuming if they were possible
[21:37:01] [Kodoz]: There are few things that could improve it
[21:37:08] [Kodoz]: Changing to veterans only discourages new players or new accounts
[21:37:25] [Kodoz]: And nobody wants that.
[21:37:43] [Kodoz]: However, the recurring problem to me is that there is a profound lack….
[21:37:49] [Kodoz]: Of perspective.
[21:37:57] [Kodoz]: These positions, while In Character
[21:38:05] [Kodoz]: Are not some end all be all to our shard or any other.
[21:38:17] [Kodoz]: They are merely another tool that you have graciously provided us with
[21:38:47] [Kodoz]: And any tool can be used by the wielder for a variety of jobs
[21:38:59] [Kodoz]: I appreciate the freedom that you have given us with this versatile tool
[21:39:15] [Kodoz]: Both as a member of PGoH, a Citizen of Trinsic, and a proud fighter
[21:39:40] [Kodoz]: Finally, the only advice I have for all involved
[21:39:49] [Kodoz]: Is that there is only one person who can choose how these elections
[21:39:53] [Kodoz]: or anyones words
[21:40:00] [Kodoz]: Or anyones actions, short of being in fel and getting PKed
[21:40:04] [Kodoz]: can affect you;
[21:40:07] [Kodoz]: And that person is yourself.
[21:40:14] [Kodoz]: It is your choice to react in a certain way
[21:40:22] [Kodoz]: It is your choice whether to take things personally
[21:40:30] [Kodoz]: And it is your choice to continue on in the face of adversity
[21:40:37] [Kodoz]: Or give up, walk away, and start anew somewhere else.
[21:40:46] [Kodoz]: Nobody owes it to anyone else to coddle them
[21:40:52] [Kodoz]: We are adults, and we should all act like it
[21:41:00] [Kodoz]: Once again, I am profoundly sorry that you have had to take time out
[21:41:02] [Kodoz]: Once again
[21:41:06] [Kodoz]: To deal with Catskills problems
[21:41:18] [Kodoz]: I hope that I will once again see you all, but under far more favorable circumstances.
[21:41:26] [Kodoz]: Thank you for your time, and I apologize for being a bit long.
[21:41:29] [Mesanna]: thank you
[21:41:31] [Kyronix]: Thank You
[21:41:40] [Mesanna]: hi Sugar
[21:41:41] [Kyronix]: Hello
[21:41:48] [Sugar Smacks]: a few things to say so ill get to it
[21:41:52] [Sugar Smacks]: I have had an opportunity to test this system and have had mixed results i would like to share
[21:42:01] [Sugar Smacks]: several of the problems i encountered involved this very shard Catskills
[21:42:18] [Sugar Smacks]: The problem being is the vote is no representation of the shard being voted on
[21:42:38] [Sugar Smacks]: I found in my election the people voted on GL brit and Atl Brit and Catskills brit
[21:42:42] [Kyronix]: From what I understand you attempted to misrepresent yourself as Dot Warner on Great Lakes
[21:43:01] [Sugar Smacks]: i think mesanna can verify there is no dot warner on my acct
[21:43:23] [Sugar Smacks]: i in fact had no knowledge of these events until the time of them and yes im aware of it now
[21:43:31] [Sugar Smacks]: and yes i find it amusing
[21:43:40] [Sugar Smacks]: but please back to the actual problems
[21:43:57] [Sugar Smacks]: you literally have 1 group speaking for ALL shards if they please at this moment
[21:44:14] [Sugar Smacks]: They may say they dont do it or wont do it but the fact is they CAN do it
[21:44:26] [Sugar Smacks]: I voted and everyone i know voted on catskills
[21:44:36] [Sugar Smacks]: none of us play catskils much!
[21:44:43] [Sugar Smacks]: should i be able to vote?
[21:44:51] [Sugar Smacks]: it was the same everywhere
[21:45:07] [Sugar Smacks]: now you might take this as a sign of me caring of losing
[21:45:24] [Sugar Smacks]: but i guess me laughing at that isnt convincing enough
[21:45:34] [Sugar Smacks]: it was a test of something new
[21:45:46] [Sugar Smacks]: and i warn you if this isnt happening it will happen
[21:45:56] [Sugar Smacks]: because i will make it happen when i can achieve enough people
[21:46:18] [Sugar Smacks]: so i warn 1 vote per account period when you take it farther it will not be pleasant
[21:46:33] [Sugar Smacks]: you will not have a community you have a group speaking for all communities
[21:46:39] [Sugar Smacks]: and no diversity
[21:47:05] [Sugar Smacks]: now if you fix it
[21:47:07] [Sugar Smacks]: great
[21:47:09] [Sugar Smacks]: if you dont
[21:47:10] [Sugar Smacks]: LOL
[21:47:12] [Sugar Smacks]: either way
[21:47:14] [Sugar Smacks]: i told you
[21:47:25] [Kyronix]: Thank You
[21:47:30] [Mesanna]: hi Devin
[21:47:33] [Kyronix]: Hello
[21:47:36] [Devin Ashley]: Hello
[21:47:47] [Devin Ashley]: I have one suggestion which a lot will not like
[21:48:01] [Devin Ashley]: While the system was invented for the player to vote , its not working
[21:48:14] [Devin Ashley]: so why not use the RNG
[21:48:30] [Devin Ashley]: everyone who wants to run does, and the RNG picks the winner
[21:48:41] [Devin Ashley]: that way noboday can complain it was unfair
[21:49:02] [Devin Ashley]: That is all and Thank You
[21:49:09] [Mesanna]: thank you
[21:49:18] [Mesanna]: hi Wild
[21:49:33] [Wild]: hi!
[21:49:37] [Mesanna]: Tucker is the last one tonight
[21:49:45] [Mesanna]: hi
[21:49:50] [Kyronix]: Hello
[21:50:01] [Wild]: i bascially want to say that nabin’s idea was reasonable in that a player must put forth some wor
[21:50:08] [Wild]: work
[21:50:13] [Wild]: in order to gain the ability to work
[21:50:28] [Wild]: to have a certain amount of acheivment
[21:50:32] [Wild]: accomplished
[21:50:43] [Wild]: that way at least everyone will have “earned” there right to vote
[21:50:54] [Wild]: no matter whom they vote for, they have earned their right
[21:51:11] [Wild]: also i think the one vote per account thing is on the right track
[21:51:27] [Wild]: because it limits the amount of potential “corruption”
[21:51:46] [Wild]: in the fact that hose with many many accts will not be able to manipulate every elctions
[21:51:51] [Wild]: just a lesser amount
[21:51:55] [Wild]: its not perfect
[21:52:01] [Wild]: but s tep in the right direction
[21:52:14] [Wild]: and i think that with adding accomplishment to voting rights
[21:52:29] [Wild]: will lesson the “misuse” of voting
[21:52:48] [Wild]: that and the guys idea about donuts
[21:52:55] [Mesanna]: lol
[21:52:55] [Wild]: but to include cake in such measures
[21:53:07] [Kyronix]: I’m in favor of more treats
[21:53:08] [Wild]: we will NOT excude cake on catskills
[21:53:11] [Crystal] Kyronix says: *nods*
[21:53:15] [Wild]: exclude*
[21:53:18] [Wild]: thats it
[21:53:21] [Wild]: have a good night
[21:53:28] [Mesanna]: hi Tucker
[21:53:46] [Tucker]: hhi
[21:53:51] [Kyronix]: Hello!
[21:54:06] [Tucker]: I was wondering if it is possible to do term limits
[21:54:16] [Tucker]: based on account
[21:54:40] [Kyronix]: I think that might be too limiting to some of our smaller population shards
[21:55:24] [Tucker]: or a way to make sure that
[21:55:46] [Tucker]: the govenor actually serve the office
[21:55:53] [Callista]: Dium Prostra
[21:55:55] [Callista]: Dium Prostra
[21:56:17] [Kyronix]: We do have checks in place to make sure a Governor is a no show
[21:56:19] [Tucker]: and not just run to get a special title
[21:56:25] [Kyronix]: Governors serve at the pleasure of the King
[21:56:32] [Kyronix]: And the King can remove them from office if the need arises
[21:56:59] [Tucker]: would the people have a chance to remove
[21:57:08] [Tucker]: I mean
[21:57:21] [Kyronix]: If citizens have concerns they are encouraged to bring it to the attention to the King
[21:57:35] [Kyronix]: This way its not just a blind removal process where someone can falsly remove someone
[21:57:52] [Tucker]: ok that’s all thanks
[21:57:56] [Kyronix]: Thank You
[21:58:06] [Tucker]: good night
[21:58:10] [Kyronix]: Thank You Tucker
[21:58:29] [Kyronix]: Whew! Thank you everyone for coming out and providing feedback
[21:58:39] [Kyronix]: I encourage everyone to continue the conversation both within the realm and outside
[21:58:47] [Kyronix]: Send us your thoughts if you have something you wish to give us feedback on
[21:59:07] [Kyronix]: We got a lot of great info tonight and will keep it all in mind as we move forward with changes
[21:59:15] [Kyronix]: And additions to the Governorships
[21:59:17] [Kyronix]: Thanks again!
[21:59:34] [Mesanna]: Hi guys
[21:59:51] [Mesanna]: We came here tonight because there was a request for a meeting
[21:59:59] [Mesanna]: because of a issue you guys were having
[22:00:05] [Mesanna]: due to the elections
[22:00:23] [Mesanna]: I reseached what I could
[22:01:38] [Mesanna]: I read the forums
[22:01:44] [Mesanna]: I read the emails
[22:02:00] [Mesanna]: and I listened to many people before coming here tonight
[22:02:12] [Mesanna]: hoping I could get to the bottom of the real problem
[22:02:19] [Mesanna]: but honestly
[22:02:28] [Mesanna]: I am a bit confused
[22:02:43] [Mesanna]: I see a group of people some RP’ers
[22:02:46] [Mesanna]: some not so much
[22:02:51] [Mesanna]: some maybe just trying
[22:03:01] [Mesanna]: but all are playing the way the want to play
[22:03:10] [Mesanna]: maybe things got out of hand
[22:03:21] [Mesanna]: I was not here so I have to say maybe
[22:03:47] [Mesanna]: I find it hard to believe that a shard as big as Atlantic
[22:04:00] [Mesanna]: with as many different types of people as they have can play together
[22:04:11] [Mesanna]: and enjoy the elections
[22:04:20] [Mesanna]: as much as possible
[22:04:29] [Mesanna]: and we can’t do it here
[22:04:41] [Mesanna]: what I heard tonight was some good suggestions
[22:04:44] [Mesanna]: some good feedback
[22:04:57] [Mesanna]: I head a few personal complaints
[22:05:08] [Mesanna]: that GM’s could and should have been called on
[22:05:42] [Mesanna]: what I did come up with though from this tonight
[22:05:52] [Mesanna]: is I want to start a open forum night
[22:05:57] [Mesanna]: so its not restricted
[22:06:09] [Mesanna]: of course I might have to limit it in time =)
[22:06:18] [Mesanna]: or we will never get thru all the shards
[22:06:47] [Mesanna]: but as Kronix said we do appreciate your feedback
[22:06:57] [Mesanna]: we do take harrassement serious
[22:07:33] [Mesanna]: and I hate getting calls on Sunday about people on Cats being upset and wanting to quit
[22:08:04] [Mesanna]: so if I have missed something we have not discussed
[22:08:17] [Mesanna]: if we did not touch base on something
[22:08:22] [Mesanna]: I am asking you to email me
[22:09:02] [Mesanna]: I know your squelched and can’t talk
[22:09:24] [Mesanna]: thank you all for coming
[22:09:35] [Mesanna]: I will be posting the Meet the Dev times on your shards
[22:09:42] [Kyronix]: Thanks again for coming!
[22:09:59] [Mesanna]: so watch for it
[22:10:02] [Mesanna]: Wild
[22:10:10] [Mesanna]: stay alive =)
[22:10:18] [Kyronix]: G’nite Everyone!
[22:10:24] [Mesanna]: good night Everyone
[22:10:37] [Mesanna]: email me at [email protected]

City of Trinsic Fishing Tournament Wrap Up!

February 04, 2014 By: Morpheus Category: Chesapeake News

Anglers wet a line in the name of the city of Trinsic this past week as Governor Phoenix hosted a local fishing tourney. A two hour window was given to find the largest and smallest “big fish” as well as the same for “rare” species.


ScreenHunter_01 Jan. 29 20.04


After the two hour tour, many fish were landed and returned to the city docks much to delight of one Governor Winfield! A “fish fry” was in order as we had enough to feed an army once complete.


ScreenHunter_04 Jan. 29 22.06


In the end so many great catches were landed as Bubba Hogge (RBG) of Guardians Gate took home first place for his largest Big Fish and Professor Sprout of Yew for the Rare variety.

[20:03:35] [SunWolf]: Does anyone know the owner of this staff, or the society that she is apart of?
[20:03:41] [Tatiana Thorn]: *studies it*

[20:04:31] [SunWolf]: It is like they gotten wiped out and tried to be forgotten.
[20:04:43] [King Blackthorn]: The rumor is that all the Druids took to residing inside the great Yew Trees.
[20:04:48] [King Blackthorn]: But tis only a rumor.
[20:05:09] [Galathan]: .
[20:05:16] [SunWolf]: There is still evidence that they are around, but just never seen.
[20:05:32] [SunWolf]: I feel this kingdom, should try to find them, and try to bring them back to us.
[20:05:47] [SunWolf]: We are missing a major part of us
[20:05:57] [SunWolf]: And there would be no Yew, without them.

[20:06:41] [SunWolf]: *nods*
[20:06:56] [King Blackthorn]: But I agree, awakening the Druids if they be willing would be a major boon to our nation.

[20:07:28] [SunWolf]: Or what was the reasoning for them vanishing.
[20:07:46] [SunWolf]: The meer helped with the swamp of all things.
[20:07:57] [King Blackthorn]: An interesting question, I bet they could be of use in the issues of Jhelom as well.
[20:08:10] [Queen Arya]: perks up*

[20:10:16] [King Blackthorn]: Wasnt a memorial already erected there?
[20:10:21] [SunWolf]: *nods*
[20:10:33] [SunWolf]: But, we should reall clean up the place I feel
[20:10:38] [SunWolf]: And put a door back up

[20:10:43] [Andrasta]: Its a small memorial for such a great Queen
[20:10:45] [SunWolf]: *nods*
[20:11:00] [King Blackthorn]: I will have Farthington explore the matter.
[20:11:06] [SunWolf]: A memorial stone outside of a crime scene, doesn’t do justice
[20:11:18] [Andrasta]: *nods*
[20:11:27] [Queen Arya]: I so miss her*
[20:11:27] [SunWolf]: That is all that I have for now.

[20:11:42] [King Blackthorn]: First for Lord Sunwolf.
[20:12:09] [King Blackthorn]: In the past term, I believe it was Governor Norrington that suggested a Tavern…
[20:12:33] [King Blackthorn]: I was wondering what you thought of using the existing Yew Winery as a foundation.
[20:12:41] [King Blackthorn]: And building a Tavern above it.
[20:12:53] [King Blackthorn]: hypothetically of course.
[20:13:06] [SunWolf]: Can I get back with you n that
[20:13:09] [SunWolf]: ??
[20:13:12] [King Blackthorn]: We could also add the monestary bell above it.
[20:13:14] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
[20:13:16] [Tatiana Thorn]: would make shipping easy….
[20:13:17] [King Blackthorn]: Sure.
[20:13:22] [Non-Union Worker]: what of the poor Monks with the excellent robes?
[20:13:28] [SunWolf]: The elves and others, asked for a tavern aswell, and I want to hear more of their thoughts
[20:13:28] [King Blackthorn]: Secondly…
[20:13:30] [Quacklebush]: sounds yummy
[20:13:43] [King Blackthorn]: As many of you know, Lady Amandine is with child.

[20:13:52] [Queen Arya]: aye

[20:14:07] [King Blackthorn]: However, the recent… disturbance in the castle…
[20:14:28] [Khaleesi]: *looks alarmed*
[20:14:29] [King Blackthorn]: I am a tolorant man, I accept all races as they come and believe they each add to the…
[20:14:32] [King Blackthorn]: Diversity of our land.
[20:14:35] [King Blackthorn]: However.
[20:14:44] [King Blackthorn]: For the sake of the health of Lady Amandine…
[20:14:55] [<14156588>SunWolf]: what happened in the castle?
[20:14:59] [Galathan]: .
[20:15:01] [King Blackthorn]: If any Goblin, or other being is caught deficating or urinating on the grounds of the Castle…
[20:15:12] [Queen Arya]: heh

Governor Norrington and Former Governor Sunwolf – Friend or Foe

October 06, 2013 By: Flair Category: Atlantic News

     There has been a lot of activity in Yew it certainly seems with rumors flying everywhere about the new Governor Norrington and the Former Governor Sunwolf. Since I attended the King Blackthorns Conseil du Roi and got to see first hand some of the tensions and controversy surrounding Yew I thought I should do a bit of investigating. With that I packed up and decided to wonder around Yew for a while and see what I could find out. Boy was I shocked when I saw this…

     Amid all the rumors and such there they were and working together. I just had to find out what was up for myself. There was quite a few folks just outside the Abby so I joined the discussion, voicing my opinions and concerns to the new governor. Wasn’t too long after that till a very strange thing happened. As we were standing there chatting, a harpsichord fell seemly from the sky and was accompanied by an interesting musician…
     I was quite amazed really as I didn’t believe our EM Bennu could sing, but there he was singing away to us…
     After the serenade he stayed around and and chatted with everyone about Yew and the plans for the future. I could almost say he was glad to see the new and old governors getting together for the benefit of Yew despite all the nasty rumors that have been floating around.
     As we all got to talking about various topics EM Bennu actually asked us all to do him a favor for one of the other governors…
     Of course all of us agreed, anything to help out and foster this new relationship. A relationship that also was apparent the following evening at the Yew meeting when all were joking laughing and having a very good time as it were, seeming to be working together for the benefit of Yew and her people.
     As the evening got on there were even jokes made from the Conseil du Roi about a certain trashcan….
trash can
     Seems someone is still upset about the trashcans though, however both sides enjoyed a good laugh. There were great ideas presented on both side for plans to move forward in Yew. I look forward to seeing this relationship grow and foster in the coming months, but as for my vote, I am voting friends.

Governors are able to enact City Trade Deals for citizens to enjoy certain benefits if there are enough funds in the city’s coffers. There are also City Message Boards for communicating with the Governors. Some Governors may start polls to learn more about what their citizens want and expect in their cities. The Governors are also expected to sit in council with King Blackthorn. Governors will hold their post for 90 days.

Congratulations to all who participated in the City Elections!
