Petitions to the Council

On the following issues, please vote yay or nay and provide whatever caveats or relevant comments your councilor deems necessary.

1. Floxod Uzzo's request for a license to grow opium poppies on his lands

2. The Honourable Drama's proposal for Coast Guard units

3. Arms-Lieutenant Branth ul-Alathar Mitrod's suggestion regarding dire-sized beasts being registered with the Civic Guard


Azaani Authority Within Drache

On the following issue, please provide a 1-2 paragraph response with your councilor's feelings on the matter, and what limitations, if any they would propose. Keep in mind that while the Azaani are in town, they are supposed to be supporting Drache with the construction of its own facilities and airships and have been in Drache for 9+ months. Whatever authority they have will be terminated on the completion of the airship docks.

4. Defining the limitations of the Azaani airship corps' authority in Drache

Please vote yay or nay on each of the numbered items. Any additional comments from your councilor are welcomed, but not necessary.

-- 6A. Magistrate Drama (Riddy) - Good Deeds/Contributions: A record of professional service in Arangoth's military, as well as the Chancellery as Magistrate. Drama also contributed to defeating Velsarius the Nightmare Fae and Drogyoldiiv the Magma Dragon. As Magistrate, she has demonstrated unbiased interpretation of the law as well as asteadfast anti-corruption stance that has already improved the reputation of the office. Also, she could use a last name.

Linn (Shayde) - Linn, human (age elongated because of his magical use, but the years are still setting in), naturalized citizen, he once killed some bandits with mouth crickets and he also once helped kill some giant pig with some marbles. Also notably the only cranberry connoisseur known of in Drache, along with being the only man to ever make a golem out of Astral Cheese.


Civic Council

Please vote yay or nay on the following people, and recommend a position for their talents.

7: City Council Members:

The remaining items on the agenda include:

* Tournament of Marshal Prowess & Fair to Celebrate the End of the Civil War
* The Seven Duchies of Arangoth (Or whatever name we settle on. Suggestions welcomed.)
* Allowing non-malicious undead to petition for a grace period

But I didn't think we had to vote on those.

Any additional comments, IC or OOC, are entirely welcomed.

Floxod Isabelle Auxerre's votes:


1. Sure - but impose a heavy tax on the product for Drachean/Transdarianian treasury.

2. Certainly - as a part of the Civic Guard and extension of the port authority, to cover naval ships.

3. Yes - registration required while within city limits, due to the sheer size, volume of food and droppings

4. Azaani Airship Corps are limited exclusively to airships and have no authority or priviledges of the Civic Guard or Port Authority. Must present badges. This should not last beyond the completion and staffing of the Drachean Airship Docks (which should be before the summer is out.)

5. Yes - 1 additional manorial estate immediately adjacent but not comprised of any of the Castle Black lands.

6A: No. Magistrate promotion was "recent".
6B. Thought she already was, yes.
6C. No. Being put on the council.
6D. Yes. Philanthropic work.

7A. No. Only had his own shop for 2 weeks.
7B. No. Magistrate, already with a good deal of authority.
7C. No. Just ennobled.
7D. Yes, Guard rep
7E. Yes, mage guild rep

Dispater Tivaurd votes/comments as follows:

1) Yes, with appropriate taxation to enrich the treasury.
2) Yes, with number to be determined later.
3) Yes, for dire-sized beasts exceeding the size of a household dog, as some 'dire' animals are still fairly small.

4) To be limited to use against airships and other aerial threats. Also, commissioning some sort of drachean aerial defense besides the eagle riders might be useful. Does not have to be air based.

5) Yes, although with due fees or percentage of product to be collected as additional rent?

6A) No.
6B) Yes, she has shown herself a solid ally of Drache.
6C) No, has had some controversy over her dealings.
6D) Only if we can grant him an estate far, far from Drache.

7A) No. No strong record of suitability for post.
7B) No.
7C) Yes, need a representative of the 'people' on the council, and she's the only one applying who has that provable background.
7D) No. Has a history of overstepping his authority as is. Maybe after further examination.
7E) Yes, as mage guild representative, with the note that she is unpredictable.

We should announce the victory over the north and the reunification and restructuring of Arangoth, and hold the Tournament and Fair to celebrate within a month or so. Formal recognition of the reorganized confederacy of Duchies should take place after each has selected their representative appropriately.

As for non-malicious undead's grace period, I see little need for it. A little bit of pressure on them helps to goad them into proving themselves useful quickly.

Dispater, with the assistance of the Tivaurd Estate has assembled a list of abandoned estates, either by forfeiture during the civil war, termination of the owners' bloodline due to battle or other issues, or those estates which have fallen into unsustainable debt. A full list will be furnished to council members, as well as the actual state, including squatters, current as of the end of last month. We can use these as rewards, sell them to boost the treasury, or the like. The Tivaurds would also like to put a formal request in for the granting of one of these estates as payment for the special services rendered during the revolution. It could be any one with arable land, for purposes of agricultural production, as well as for construction of a minor stronghold to help dissuade banditry in its area.

Petitions to the Council

On the following issues, please vote yay or nay and provide whatever caveats or relevant comments your councilor deems necessary.

1. Floxod Uzzo's request for a license to grow opium poppies on his lands - Yes, with heavy taxation to enrich the treasury.

2. The Honourable Drama's proposal for Coast Guard units - Agreement with Lady Auxerre. Recommend they be answerable directly to the Drachean Sithire and not to the City Guard.

3. Arms-Lieutenant Branth ul-Alathar Mitrod's suggestion regarding dire-sized beasts being registered with the Civic Guard - Yes. Registered and taxed at a no profit level in order to cover the costs of ...clean up.

4. Defining the limitations of the Azaani airship corps' authority in Drache - Agreement with Lady Auxerre. However recommends that they be registered and monitored, and limited to a quantity no greater than the current units of Drache could defend against. Recommend random inspections for weapons and combat troops.

5: Floxod Uzzo's request to expand his lands to adjacent, untenanted plots - Granted, with the limitation set by young Lord Tivaurd.

6: Ennobling of the following:

-- 6A. Magistrate Drama (Riddy) - Absolutely not. She exhibits a profound inability to decisions on limited information, which is a curse to a leader. Furthermore, she seems to have no comprehension of the good will afforded to and between members of the peerage. Finally, while her efforts may be moral and perhaps slightly courageous, she has extremely limited experience.

-- 6B. Aridia Vloress (Chi) - Good Deeds/Contributions: No. If being an alley of Drache quantifies you as nobility we should invite everyone. Give her time to prove her mettle.

-- 6C. Annanistael (Luci) - No.

-- 6D. Linn (Shayde) - Yes. He's a caster isn't he? I believe we need a drain commissioner...

7: City Council Members:

-- 7A. Javakh, Flametender of Vanakanthi (Alex) - No, lack of history as a business man.
-- 7B. Magistrate Drama (Riddy) - No. She is already a magistrate. Let her focus on that.
-- 7C. Aridia Vloress (Chi) - She wants both? I think no.
-- 7D. Lieutenant Branth ul-Alathar Mitrod (GirlElf) - Yes, Guard Representative.
-- 7E. Annanistael (Luci) - Yes, Mage Representative.


The remaining items on the agenda include:

* Tournament of Marshal Prowess & Fair to Celebrate the End of the Civil War
-- Asnerith offers to act as co-host of the tournament, if Lady Auxerre would indulge him as his partner in this endeavor.
* Allowing non-malicious undead to petition for a grace period
-- Asnerith believes no grace period should be offered.

* Suggestion -
Personnel of noble decent from the Seven Dutchies, those serving in an official capacity to in the grade of Officer or higher, should be granted citizenship regardless of all other requirements, in order to afford them the full protection of the law.
