Over a millennium ago, a beast known as Nefas the Destroyer was slain by the God Matte. The world was rebuilt in the wake of the destruction and a new empire was formed. For hundreds of years peace reigned, but this has turned to turmoil in the capital with the disappearance of the empress. In the frontier lands, the people have turned from the Gods and towards the forbidden practice of Machinis. Now rumors stir that Nefas has returned and has brought destruction in its wake. Can the people be brought under one banner again, can the empress be found, and can Nefas be stopped once more?

House Spana is torturing loyal retainers of The Great Houses!
While I and my loyal retainer were held, illegally and against our wills, by House Spana, my loyal retainer was psychologically tortured in an attempt to extract information out of him. Spana has abused their authority and used it to circumvent ours laws and due process. An affront to my loyal retainer is an attack on me, indeed on all of us! This aggression will not stand!

Uredd's speech for Council Referendum #41298739874871 - Investigation into visitor treatment at Black March penal facility
[Hands folded pensively]
I recently had the misfortune of visiting the Black March facility (on an assignment, not as a prisoner of course) [Wait for laugh] and I was shocked and appalled at how I, a free man (born of Dragon no less!), was treated.

[Hands out, palms open]
Now I understand we must "keep a tight ship" [Pound fist on open hand] and give the guards and warden(s) a [scare quotes] "long leash" and so on, but my experience visiting one of the prisoners smacked of handing the keys and power of the facility over to bullies.

The guards at the facility relished ordering me [Hand on chest], again a free man born of the Dragon, around and violating my dignity (and my orifices) all in the name of "security." Now you all know me as a staunch proponent of protecting the realm. [Pump both fists energetically] This clearly had nothing to do with protecting the realm.

[Hands open, palms in, gesturing out]
If, as one much wiser than myself once said; "the degree of a nation’s civilization can be seen in the way it treats its prisoners," certainly those visiting our society's prisoners should be free from the savagery of anal intrusion! [Wince]

[Emphatic closed fist with thumb forward]
We must look into this issue at once and make this place intimidating for prisoners, not terrifying for free persons going there to gather information to aid the hand of Justice!

And as a side note, guard H1N1 still owes me dinner and a drink. [Wait for laugh]. Thank you, and I look forward to working with you on this issue!

Reelect Uredd Berama for District 212 council seat!
Frikk Matros claims he cares about your safety, but he shot down a bill authored by Uredd Berama to increase military spending by 24%.

Frikk Matros attacked Uredd based on some of his friendships with supposed Machini sympathizers, but recently one of Frikk's slaves was executed for being a Machini spy. Looks like those who live in Jade houses should be wary of casting the first stone.

Frikk Matros claims to be a friend to the people, but in fact he's voted against 78% of the bills that would help ordinary folks. He instead chose to vote almost exclusively for special interests, mainly ones that furthered his house's prominence and wealth.

When it comes time to cast your vote for District 212 council member, remember: Frikk Matros cares about house Matros. Ulredd Berama cares about YOU!

I'm Uredd Berama, and I approve this message.

(Paid for by Uredd Berama for District 212 council seat).

And so it begins (again). A chat with Amacus.
As Donata lies down to get a few hours of sleep, she (as she does most nights) confides in Amacus (much of which is in head turns, eye blinks, and shoulder twitches):

"We're slipping. We need to be more careful. I don't want this to end up like that sunken gold temple fiasco."
...
"I mean we should have known the magnitude of that storm was too much to keep Darius out in it overnight."
...
"No I'm not his mother but we still don't want to get him killed, and I have an attachment to him. Don't tell him that though [smiles]. Either way it was reckless and, dare I say arrogant. We're working with a team again, we need to remember that."
...
"I think dealing with all of these petty humanoids and their machinations is already making me restless and clouding my judgement. I'd forgotten how annoying it can be. It can never be simple dealing with them. The more there are, the worse it is."
...
"Yes I am one of them, in a way, you needn't remind me."
...
"I know: This one wants this thing found and is suddenly forgetful, that one wants some other thing dealt with before he'll help with the first one's nonsense, the first one remembers he's murdering his workers but doesn't want to stop, these ones won't talk to those ones, this one will only talk to that one... Like hatchlings, they are. So convoluted!"
...
"Exactly, and the bastard we're looking for is sitting in the bar the whole time."
...
"I miss those days too, they were much simpler, but we have a chance to find Admirari! Our team seems competent so we have that at least."
...
"I just hope we find it before we die of aggravation or old age. The lost city doesn't sound like a picnic, if the crazy old mountain man is being truthful."
...
"That's why I say we need to be more cautious."
......
"Huh? Yes I saw those large rabbit-like creatures burrowing in the snow."
...
"I think they are some kind of rodent, why?"
...
"I don't know if they taste delicious."
...
"If you can take one down, go for it. Just be careful."
...
"No thanks, my 'no rodent' rule still stands, even if there's a chance it may not be a rodent."
...
"Yes that's true, then there'll be more for you."
...
"Night Amacus, happy hunting."
