Re: For City Council Vote 08.V.489

Though Councilwoman Raeld implied it, it should be stated clearly for the record: For budgetary reasons I would like to add an additional caveat, that the Floxod be considered an employee of this institution and thereby of the City of Drache, and not just an outside source of funding. My vote is sti...

Re: For City Council Vote 08.V.489

Councilman Lane Silverbow votes yay with caveats: I. The grant equals a 10% total increase. I see no need in a 20% increase to funding if operating expenses currently do not warrant it. II. The reviews and adjustments mentioned are all well and good, but we should be more specific here. I propose th...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

Even though it was a high number, it was easy to accept it. After all, they would be getting paid for this, and for a suitable navy, 5 years seemed like a worthwhile number. Teaching Trandarianians the trades of shipbuiding would only benefit them both in the long run. "Our thanks, Your Grace." As t...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

Prior to the Lord Admiral's words, Alejandra nodded to Sajaad, "We can find some time in the coming days to meet and get this all down to be gone over by our respective ruling bodies, that works well for me." Alejandra pursed her lips faintly while she mulled the number over in her head. A sip of wi...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

"You have my thanks, your Grace," Alejandra began with a smile, glancing between the two. She nursed her glass of wine, leaving the stem perched delicately between two fingers, swaying back and forth idly. "And to you, my lady," she offered to Sajaad with an equally pleasant smile. She spoke briefly...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

A few terms and phrases Alejandra appeared to not be familiar with, or at least the common tongue's version of them at the very least. The whispers between her and her translator lasted for a minute or so, but it may have felt like it took a whole lot longer than that. Once they had concluded, Aleja...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

After a few moments going back and forth with her translator, Alejandra runs her fingertip along the rim of her glass, but without making the obnoxious noise. She contemplates her fellow ambassador's words, mulling them over and forging a response. "Her Grace made this opportunity possible, having a...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

"Of course, your Grace. My apologies. I only wished to give ample time for your people to look them over while we discussed other things." Alejandra smiled politely, perhaps a little apologetically, but kept her composure nonetheless. She paused to take a sip of wine, waving the shipwrights off to f...

Re: Marilsani Negotiations

"Marilsan welcomes you, Your Grace," Alejandra said as she and the two shipwrights rose, offering the bows and curtsies as necessary. They only sat themselves once Isabelle had settled in, and the shipwrights waited until Alejandra sat. She quietly organized the paperwork in front of her, slipping i...

Marilsani Negotiations

Alejandra had been summoned to the great hall where she had met with the other ambassadors, as well as Isabelle, though the seating arrangements were a little more intimate since the topics at hand only required a few ears rather than the full gathered masses. She had arrived first, so it was very q...
