Fellow brothers and sisters,
I trust that you have heard of the executions in Prantz, soon to happen. The reason of this post is to know what we are to do. I believe we all need to discuss this as these people are going to be hanged because they tried to do what's right, what WE should do. I think that there is no need to remind that the tirant who calls himself ruller of Prantz destroyed our temple, killed innocente people and the defenders of the city. I was there. I saw it. This is the time to lead the people of Pratz to a brighter future, to rebuild our great temple, and let everyone know that our Lord is there to protect us all, or to, at the very least, rescue the people who did nothing wrong.

*As Michaelis flips through the book of laws outlined by Broegar, Kashi walks up to him*
Hello Michaelis. Sorry to bother but
it seems many are up in arms about the Prantz executions.
*She looks down to see him immersed as he reads the laws. Without looking up he says*
I know some of these people albeit not so well. This is the first public execution that I'm aware of. He had better have a good reason and even so, I don't see justice being done here. Only cruel judgement.
*Kashi frowns, sitting down next to him. Michaelis speaks again*
Ever since King Waylend died this city has gone to hell. Now his daughter is soon to follow. But for what?
*He flips a page and frowns*
These rules show no mercy and imply utter obediance. I see no good from this. At least the people are more ordered now. But at what cost I wonder?
*Kashi sighs again and speaking she says*
Well a young man wishes to call a meeting. Came in here and posted a notice.
*Michaelis shuts the book and reads the notice*
Hmm, so eager. We need that. But blind bravado will accomplish nothing. That much is certain and that's all I've seen as of late. I need to find out more about what they did to deserve this. Was there even a trial I wonder. A judge? A jury? Perhaps a meeting would be wise.
*He looks up for a moment pondering*
Perhaps there is someone out there who knows more of this. I need more information.
*Kashi looks at him*
But what can you do sir?
I don't know *
I don't know if I'll be able to do anything. Marching in there with swords and axes will accomplish nothing. If they're to be saved, it's to be done diplomatically. But I've heard of Broegar's politics or lack there of. I don't know.
*he sighs and hands the notice back to Kashi instructing her to place it back up where it originally was.*

*Maev strides into the temple, her armor dented and scratched, the blood of giants and the gore of undead splattered across it's usually immactulate surface*
I've been thinking hard, battling chaos in the dark places, punishing it for the unjustices it breeds, hoping to clear the anger out of my head in a constructive manner. These are my friends, some of them I've fought alongside on numerous occasions. The crimes they stand accused of are no more than trumped up lies. Some people understand diplomacy, truth can be explained to them and a just solution can be created without swords and axes. Others are blind by there own addiction to power, they only know the bloody truths taught at the end of Toran's longsword. If we pause here, if we hold our weapons close and seek to check our anger good people will die. We are servants of Toran, we have allowed Broeger to rule unchecked for far too long. The people of the land whisper that we have traded The Great Leader's love to hold on to some illusion of power in Pranzis. Brother Praylor is right, if we stand by and watch, we are no better than the evil chaos we seek to keep in check. Rise up Toranites, let us act boldly in the name of Good!
*she glances down at the battered surface of her armor, and strides purposely out, leapes onto her horse she rides out from Fort Llast at a furious pace*

Fellow brothers and sisters,
I am writting again this time to call a time for the meeting. It appears that the opinions diverge and as such I ask all Toranites to come to the meeting and say what they think we should do. We need to stick together in order to triunph, either diplomaticaly or by force of arms, so again, please try to come.
//No longer going to do voting, will probably get more complicated
I've posted in the calendar but anyway the meeting will occur in Fort Llast at 9 pm GMT day 13.

*Kashi walks up once again to Michaelis and whispers something in his ear. Michaelis sighs*
They are young. I admire their ferver. Though odd that they heard my words when only you were present.
Do you think it's wise sir?
No. No it's not. They would run in screaming, hollering. I pray they know enough to not challenge the city. They would simply be hanged with the rest and their energy to waste. It would accomplish nothing. It would be a loss, a tragic one.
*Kashi nods slightly*
I hear all armor and weapons are being confiscated upon entering. But sir...
*Michaelis holds his hand up and speaks cutting her off*
However, we will not sit passively. I will not. I'll not let injustice stand and now, after what I've heard, I've no doubt there is no justice in this. I will not support this. They're right in that it would be quite an injustice to stand around. That was never my intention.
So then what will you do? The others would like to meet and they seem to be demanding Broegar's head!
*Michaelis appears in thought for a minute, then his face becomes as it always is - stern, expressionless.*
It is my job to protect innocent men and women and if that means certain death, it's a end I'm willing to cope with. If I know it will protect them. Dying so that justice is done is our purpose. Not dying and justice not being served from it. In this case, perhaps the attempt is worth it, but the inexperienced always rush for the sword first. Broegar is abiding by Rofirien's law's, something that is our job to enforce. If he has publically stated that, then only to take back his word, the people may revolt or at the very least he'll lose favor in their eyes. Though I hear reports of some being pleased with the order that he's so incredulously
installed. I still feel that there is good in the people of Prantz. They remember the good when order was maintained by Waylend. Order over disorder yes, but that city needs temporance and the people need a moral leader. I pray the people see that.
*He stands up and walks to a chest, and Kashi speaks to him again*
So will you fight for them?
Always my lady.
But you'll have no blade!
The gaurds will.
You'll take theirs?
If Toran wills it, then yes.
//EDIT - can't make the meeting time scheduled on the calendar unless it's held at 8pm EST. Good initiative with the meeting by the way:)

*A falcon drops a message in front of Kashi, she opens it and reads it slowly*
Dearest Kashi and Brothers and Sisters of the Faith,
In my efforts to use my anger in a constructive fashion, I have found myself deeply wounded and needing to heal before I can fight my way out of the forest of mists. Many giants stand between me and my path home and I'm still too weak to battle them all. I will be strong enough soon, for my faith is unbending. But word has reached me that an important meeting is to take place regarding what to do with the current administration in Prantz, and because of my predicament I may not be able to make it. Please let my suggestions be known.
I know the dwarves under Ironguts are planning to march on the town, between us and them I think we have enough to blockade the town. I suggest we shut down access to and from the town. If we employ the right mercanaries we can ensure that only Broegar suffers the embargo. If Toran wills it, this will give us the power to negotiate freedom for the innocents on the gallows.
Once that is done, we must begin plans to bring proper order to the town, we must get rid of the last of blood's minions and bring real order to our beloved city. Not the pretend order of a despotic demon-dwarf. I will share my plans on that once our friends are freed from the hangman's noose.
In Toran's Honor, Maev O'Leary, Humble servant of the Great Leader
*Kashi then folds the message into a pouch and tacks another message to the board "I have a private message from Maev O'Leary, See Kashi to read it".*
//OOC I will be unable to make this meeting. I wanted Maev's thoughts known, I assume this would be the best way.

*Michaelis is east on Dregar. Specifically in Lorindar. A man runs up to him and gives him a message. He reads it*
A note from Maev O' Leary that I thought you should see. Also, as requested, how the meeting went. There are a few who insist on storming in their with their swords. They scream that they should not have to abide by the laws of a demon-lover and that Toran's will is not to stand idely by, but meet this injustice head on. That they will have nothing to do with a church that does not act. I will let you decide for yourself. Here is the letter from Maev.
"Dearest Kashi and Brothers and Sisters of the Faith, In my efforts to use my anger in a constructive fashion, I have found myself deeply wounded and needing to heal before I can fight my way out of the forest of mists. Many giants stand between me and my path home and I'm still too weak to battle them all. I will be strong enough soon, for my faith is unbending.

*he frowns after reading the letter*
What is it?
*A knight next to him says*
Seems some are planning an attack after all. I pray Maev made it out alright.
*He shows the knight the notice, which the man in turn reads*
How many dwarves does this "Ironguts" have?
*the mans says*.
I've little idea. We've an obligation here no doubt. Those people about to be hanged need us and I'll not abondon them.
*The knight nods, but then his face goes grim*
I admire their ferver Michaelis. Toran would be pleased. But some speak as fools. They'll commit actions in the name of glory. Their hearts are good. But unless we mount an army bigger than the one you fought in with Bloodstone, they'll do absolutely no good! We need to be smart with this!
I know. I've spoken to Kashi about this. I've had people coming to me and speaking of what they've heard others of the faith saying. I wonder if this dwarf Ironguts is the same one who posted that bounty? It just may be. This idea by Maev about cutting off the trade routes. It may work, but to gather the man power needed in this little time.Particularly men and women strong enough and numerous enough to establish this blockade at every entrance
*he sighs in thought for a moment*
The toranites can't let this stand! But I fear those who speak so bluntly have no idea what they speak about.
*The knight nods*
You mean blind bravado and emotion. They'll just get themselves killed.
*Michaelis nods back*
Well...from what I hear, they'd rather die trying even if the chance of success is nill.
There is honor in that and we do have the responsiblity. Broegar may be law bound yes, but I don't see him freeing these people despite their innocence. If that is the case, then we must fight.
But we'll have no armor and weapons!
*the knight sighs, scratching his chin for a moment*.
And some are being irrational. Why I heard through word of mouth that one of our faith was heard saying..and I quote "If that be the bootlicking people of Pranzis so be it...there is a housing shortage any way". That's why the people look down on us!What outrage!
*Michaelis raises an eyebrow at this.*
Who said this?
*The knight shakes his head with a solemn face*
I don't know.
*Michaelis's face shows a hint of anger.*
Many toranites I suspect will bring weapons and amor. If they are to do this....
*he crumples the note as he clenches his fist*
Darn it! I wish someone would contact me. If they insist on raising on army, they do a heck of job keeping those that could actually make a difference out of it. Hell...I'd even be satisfied if they contacted Remiel about it! Plenarius. Reventage. If the others are so blind, and are too proud to get off their horses and form a battle plan, not limiting themselves to our faith, but of allied faiths as well there may be a small chance. But in war, too many innocents would be killed! We must use this "sword pointing" that I keep hearing as a last resort! Diplomacy first. I dislike the Broegar and he should be removed..and..AND...he may not keep his word, in which case we should act. But if we're going to form a strategy, they should at least send letters to those whom fought to protect this world in the first place!
*Michaelis storms off toward Prantz*

*Lucius tacks a message to the Fort Llast temple*
Brothers and sisters,
I could not attend the meeting due to a small bandit problem near Haven, properly taken care of by now. I don't know what was suggested in the meeting, but my idea is to avoid direct confrontations with Prantz for now. The most we should do is take the prisoners out of town, with force if necessary. Taking the town back now is impossible, seeing that the population would defend Broegar and create too many casualties.
Dictatorships like the current Prantz can only be taken down with help from those being opressed. Broegar fooled the city into a feeling of security, and it'll take a while until they see the true nature of his administration. Only then we may attack and remove him from the power he stole.
I unfortunately won't be able to attend the execution, or I'd help free the "criminals". Some of them are friends, and I know they're innocent. A small operation, just to take them out of town, is possible and I agree with, but a full-force blow to the city will do more harm than good. I pray to Toran for the safety of the prisoners, and I pray for wisdom so we may take the right step in this difficult time.
