Cirdan: ?
Jack Sparrow: aye it was a nasty affair
Lord Blackthorn: Last Thursday the Royal Guard responded to a vicious threat originating from the graveyard.
Beowulf McLovin: ahhh my lord we need to place more security in the town

Beowulf McLovin: the power is strong from with in the grave yard
Lord Blackthorn: *nods*
Lord Blackthorn: I will order the Commander to assign several extra guards to Moonglow’s perimeter.
Beowulf McLovin: the people of moonglow feel unsafe as we try to hold them to the grave yard
Beowulf McLovin: thank you my lord
Lord Blackthorn: In the mean time, I will expect the guard to respond to any further threats that reveal themselve
Lord Blackthorn: I am in the process of organizing a dig at the site of this “old grave” as it was described.
Beowulf McLovin: Yes Sir!
Lord Blackthorn: I have no doubts, once the dig begins, that more of the evil resting beneath it will stir.
DevilsOwn: Ynise suspects that another of Mondain’s Six lies there
Lord Blackthorn: *nods*
Lord Blackthorn: Yes, I noticed that in the report.
Beowulf McLovin: maybe a curfew order may be needed for the people of moonglow
Lord Blackthorn: That is entirely your decision, Governor.
Beowulf McLovin: seems the power grows within the dark hours
Lord Blackthorn: If you believe it will ensure the safety of your people, then do what you must.
Beowulf McLovin: indeed i will order it after the meeting sir
Lord Blackthorn: If one of the ancient Knights does indeed rest beneath Moonglow, it is our duty to find it.
Jack Sparrow: I can spare some guards to assist Moonglow
Lord Blackthorn: *nods*
Lord Blackthorn: That will be appreciated, Governor Sparrow.
Jack Sparrow: I was there last week and saw what was happening
DevilsOwn: Our forces at times seemed overwhelmed, but the night ended in victory
Lord Blackthorn: The undead have always been a vicious and relentless foe.
Beowulf McLovin: a curfew of 10pm will be order in moonglow to keep the people safe and maybe add some barricade
Lord Blackthorn: For they cannot truly be killed – only beaten to a motionless pulp, really.
Lord Blackthorn: *nods*
Lord Blackthorn: Now, with that matter concluded, let us begin our reports.
Lord Blackthorn: Governor Cirdan, what do you have to report about Jhelom?
Cirdan: may i ask some questions first?
Lord Blackthorn: Certainly.

Cirdan: no sure who to go about it tho
Cirdan: not
Lord Blackthorn: How would this event work?
Cirdan: i would try to give participants a reward from my personal holdings based on number of orders com
Cirdan: pleted in a 24 hr period
Cirdan: if it casn be tracked
Cirdan: would promote commerce
Lord Blackthorn: To my knowledge, I am not certain there is a way to track individual trade order counts.
Cirdan: but honstly im still trying to figure out trade orders
Cirdan: ok
Lord Blackthorn: If there was, I believe your idea could bring incredible economic incentive.
Cirdan: ty

Jack Sparrow: the mongbats seemed to have disappeared
DevilsOwn: *smile*
Lord Blackthorn: *nods*
Lord Blackthorn: Very good.
Lord Blackthorn: And it is good to hear of your festival.
Jack Sparrow: now you don’t even see normal ones

Jack Sparrow: on one hand I’m happy they are gone
Jack Sparrow: but am weary to keep a blind eye

Lord Blackthorn: *grins*
DevilsOwn: Jack would win should it be a contest
Jack Sparrow: *nods*
Seledor: begins tosing*yo ho yo ho*
Lord Blackthorn: That sounds like an adventure indeed.
Jack Sparrow: last year we were very successful in defeating an island of undead pirates
Jack Sparrow: and their Titan boss
Jack Sparrow: there was booty for everyone
Jack Sparrow: and my tailors made shirts to mark the occasion
Lord Blackthorn: I wish you good fortune in the expedition.
Jack Sparrow: this year they are busy with a new “surprise”
Jack Sparrow: thank you sire
Lord Blackthorn: That will certainly be a night to remember.
Jack Sparrow: i will inform you if we have trouble with mongbats again

Jack Sparrow: i believe so
DevilsOwn: very good, thank you
DevilsOwn: quiet in Skara Brae, some would say boring, I say peaceful

Cirdan: just a few question M’lord

Lord Blackthorn: *looks to Delian*
Delian Mars: would it be possbile to have a place on the forum where we governors could
Delian Mars: state the current trade agreement we have
Delian Mars: efor the citizens
Lord Blackthorn: If it would help, I could compile such a list and place it in my book of faces.
Delian Mars: if there is one i didnt find it
Delian Mars: oh ty vm
Delian Mars: want to be able to offer alasy many choices as possible
Lord Blackthorn: *nods*
Lord Blackthorn: That is a fine proposition, which I can accomodate.
Delian Mars: also i would like to try to get aa day of hunting/chopping ming for the muesum
Delian Mars: would i tell you to get it on the announcement
Delian Mars: i mean fro the criers to announce
Lord Blackthorn: *rubs his chin*
Lord Blackthorn: Let me consider that for a moment.
Delian Mars: of course
Delian Mars: also would you know how i can figure out the decay rate for the level for the community
Delian Mars: museum
Delian Mars: i just cant grasp it
Delian Mars: when the level goes a tier
Lord Blackthorn: Unfortunately Governor, I do not believe the town criers will be able to accomodate that
Delian Mars: how fast does it decay
Delian Mars: ok ty
Lord Blackthorn: My recommendation is to post your announcement to a forum.
Lord Blackthorn: This is the most visible place for it
Lord Blackthorn: Now, as for the decay rate…
Delian Mars: thats all for my report sir Vesper is quiet
Lord Blackthorn: I’m not sure I have ever heard an answer to the exact rate of decay.
Lord Blackthorn: I believe a percentage is taken away each day.
Delian Mars: ok ty i just wanted to maintain any gains if possible
Lord Blackthorn: The more points that accumulates, the more are lost each day.
Delian Mars: oh hok
Delian Mars: ok
Lord Blackthorn: Perhaps observing it over the course of several days will yield an answer.
Delian Mars: ty i can do that
Lord Blackthorn: Nevertheless I do support your proposition, I wish you good luck in your plans.
Delian Mars: 🙂
Lord Blackthorn: Is there anything else you wish to report?
Delian Mars: no sire
Lord Blackthorn: Thank you.
Lord Blackthorn: Governor Zalan, how fares Yew?
Zalan: Yew is growing
Zalan: Yew has been working on trade deals
Zalan: We have noticed an increase in bandits intercepting the traders
Lord Blackthorn: Ah, bringing more trade into Yew
Lord Blackthorn: *nods*
Lord Blackthorn: The Deep Woods is a typical refuge for fugitives of the law.
Zalan: The guards have noticed a slight increase in orc foot traffic to the south
Zalan: In the forest
Lord Blackthorn: Yes, they have an underground fortress somewhere in that area.
Zalan: I have aquired a small keep to help the security in Yew
Lord Blackthorn: They tend to keep to themselves, but in hard times have been known to strike out.
Lord Blackthorn: Fortunately there has not been a serious orcish threat in a long time.
Zalan: This is all I have to report on Yew for now
Lord Blackthorn: *nods*
Lord Blackthorn: Thank you Governor.
Lord Blackthorn: Before I conclude this meeting, I wish to make one more remark.
Lord Blackthorn: I have heard rumors of a traveling merchant appearing near Skara Brae
Lord Blackthorn: I do not know this man personally – but I understand the nature of his business.
Lord Blackthorn: Men like him must be treated with great caution.
DevilsOwn: gypsy, a bit shady, but fun
Lord Blackthorn: Do not be seduced by his seemingly glamorous goods.
Lord Blackthorn: The gypsies are an industrious and in some ways mysterious people.
DevilsOwn: but they are *very* pretty shinies, m’Lord
Lord Blackthorn: Yet, some among them have been known for being tricksters and shysters.
Lord Blackthorn: It is the same with any people, truly.
Lord Blackthorn: But what sets the gypsies apart is their deep connection to their ancient ways.
Lord Blackthorn: I only advise caution with this man.
Lord Blackthorn: With that said, I thank the governors for their attendance.
Lord Blackthorn: This meeting is adjourned.
DevilsOwn: thank you, Sire
Lord Blackthorn: Long live Britannia!
Seledor: long live Legends
