In subject of: The Count of Garod Arrives in Lithmore

_________________________________________________________________________
On the 10th of Quintilis, during the most active hours of the day, a stately
procession was seen entering through Lithmore's affluent north gate. The
group progressed south along King's Concourse at an unhurried pace, drawing
considerable attention from shopkeepers and passers by. When it arrived at
the busy Crossroads intersection, the crowds halted their business and parted
for several moments to allow the long line of carriages, servants, and guards
to pass through. The cavalcade then continued east down Church Street and, a
short while after, was spotted traversing Rosdokios bridge before
disappearing into the Vandagan quarter.

According to casual and first-hand observers, the train's lavish carriages
were heavily laden with large leather trunks accompanied by well-dressed
retainers. Banner-bearers rode at both ends, holding high the colors of
House Dmitreva.

Those who managed to catch a glimpse of the Count describe him as a stout man
with dark hair who was positively dripping with gold and expensive jewels. A
magnificent greatcoat was draped loosely around his frame, the shoulders of
the garment wreathed in luxurious white fox fur.

The reason for the nobleman's visit is still a subject of speculation, but it
seems clear from his extensive accouterments that he intends to make himself
comfortable in Lithmore for quite some time.

Word circulates outside the Merchants guild that the Grand Magnate, Yeto le
Coblek, has stepped down from office. There's no official reason given,
though some speculate it may be because his incredible weight has led to
health related hardships. Others insinuate the former Grand Magnate simply
has other interests. Either way, leadership has been passed along to the
current Magnate until a formal decision is made regarding the next Grand
Magnate.

Though the Queen has not been seen in person, the Throne has released the
following proclamation:

"Her Royal Highness, Queen Celeste I, congratulates the newly appointed
Seneschal of Lithmore.

Further, as one of the Great Lords, the Seneschal is hereby commanded to
present herself to the Throne. If found to be strong in faith and good
character, they shall be anointed the Keeper of the Seal."

Many of Celeste's supporters queried the brief nature of the proclamation and
wondered why there was no mention of retribution towards Roland, hoping there
might still be more to come.

_________________________________________________________________________
On a cool and clear morning, A youthful Tubori figure stood in front of the
entrance to the Merchants guild, his left hand held gently against his chest.
His voice was strong and confident, but rough from a coughing fit he had been
subject to just before speaking.

"Members of the Merchants's guild It is my Honor to accept the position of
Grand Magnate. Grand Magnate le Coblek was truly and inspiration to me with
his cheerfulness and general involvement with those he had taken interest in.
His goal was to bring the people of the city, The Craftsman of the city
together . Because of his example I have a good starting point in which to
venture into this new journey given to me. The Lord has blessed me and I
wish to express my gratitude in the support that I have gained from my time
here, from Count von dmitriva, and The Baron of Perch, and the patronage from
Lady ab Azater. I plan on meeting with these individuals in future and
taking advice from them in regards to bolstering our guild's foundation to
something garunteed to remain firm."

With this He had turned and left the courtyard and walked back into the
guildhall, speaking with attendants and apprentices alike.

_________________________________________________________________________
Word of a symbolic Candle Blessing is spreading throughout Lithmore.
Spearheaded by the Count of Garod and the Poet Knight, the ceremony is to be
held in the Vandagan Quarter as part of the celebrations in honor of Her
Royal Majesty. Already, residents in other sectors have begun to talk
favorably of the idea, attracted by messages of warmth and unity.

According to supporters, all that's required is a candle and an open heart:
the willingness to forgive old grudges and, unencumbered by them, to accept
and move on. As with the traditional Vandagan Candle Blessing held in
Spring, the ceremony represents a new beginning, a time to balance the humors
so that one may focus on a productive and fulfilling future.

The full benefits aren't likely to be felt until after the actual ceremony,
and only time will tell how long the optimism will last.

In subject of: Word from the Baron Perche
Date : Tue Aug 21 20:44:37 2018
Expires : Sun May 16 20:44:42 2021
To : all
_________________________________________________________________________
It was the morning of Septembris 8 that the Baron and Baroness of Perche, who
had been seen going to confess with a person who was clearly a bishop a few
hours before, walked through Church Square and towards the Bluebird.

Obviously, things went well enough, as they emerged happy and healthy,
arm-in-arm, and they were conversing with said bishop in a
friendly-but-respectful sort of way. What followed, just an hour later, was
a speech at the Bluebird. To be specific, it was in the restaurant. There
were notables there, including a squire and Deaidry le Carinelle.

A speech followed at the restaurant, in which the Baron made a few points.
He revealed he had confessed, as had his wife, and he apologized to a certain
Farin Baron he has a negative relationship with. However, he did point out
that foreign nobles are not his equal in the Duchy of Lithmore, which might
not sit well with those who aren't technically Lithmorran.

The bad blood, if you will, was not really discussed. Notably, he pointed
out that discussing it further would make both barons look bad. He seemed,
at least, apologetic. Whether he was or not is subject to debate, but that's
how it seemed.

He also revealed that while he will remain in town while searching for a
husband for his sister, he has resigned from the City Council. The
resignation, it can only be assumed, has to do with whatever sins he and his
lady wife committed. Still, both the baron and his wife walk free, and those
who have spotted them recently note that they seem to be in fine spirits.

The speech ended with this line: "May the Lord bless you, may the Lord bless
this Holy Duchy, and may the Lord bless the most Holy Kingdom of Lithmore!
Thank you!"

In keeping with the theme of events ahead of the Queen's open court, word
is circulating about a curious contest:
                            Ablute the Brute!

     To quarrel is to let sin darken your soul. There is a Brute who
     needs our help removing such impurities through careful, public
     cleansing! Contestants will shoot arrows at a target to try and
     assist the stubborn Brute with cleaning out his mean ol' mouth.

          To begin approx. 30 minutes after the Candle Blessing
          at Paarin Park Near The Pond. Everything is provided,
               just bring yourself and a helpful attitude!
(OOC questions can be sent to Calanthe.)

_________________________________________________________________________
Word of a quieting in recent mage activity has begun to spread through the
streets of the city, and it seems that one of the contributing factors has
been Countess ab Trenica's denouncements of their activity at the Crossroads
of late. It is now being said that a celebration is being prepared, a public
Mass to be held in Church Square - both for the clear reasons of exulting in
the joy of quelled magery, and, more subtly, to show very clearly to any
witches that continue to skulk that the good cityfolks' faith is brazenly
strong - strengthened, even - rather than cowed.
