Wiltshire Council Shakeups
Two council members recently resigned from the council, Edge and Scarabecus. That opened the door for the next two on their respective lists to take office on the council. Harekr was the next CUE candidate and has taken Edge's seat while Bohr has replaced Scarabecus from the OPE list.
The change in personnel has led to a change in appointments. The current roles of the council members are as follows:
Quote :
The Council
Ecthelion (Trade Minister)
Lorudce (Count)
Whit (Judge)
LordLED (Sheriff)
Wyntyrkyng (Spokesman/Chief Diplomat)
TheSnowMan (Constable)
Harekr (Mines Superintendant)
Aanien (Sergeant)
Nightbliss (Public Prosecutor/ Minister of Culture)
Nataniel (Captain)

Father Lorudce, Count of Wilthsire has said that the council has been discussing a number of issues and the change in personnel has not slowed down the progress. Expect more announcements soon.

TheSnowMan found Not Guilty

An issue reared its head like a wild beast in the last days of TheSnowMan's term as mayor of Southampton.

The indictment was stated in simple terms.
Quote :
The defendant is accused of abusing of his power of Mayor.

He has sold, on the Town Hall Market, items at 1 for himself

This issue was first brought to light by Stanchev, a citizen of Southampton who noticed some prices which seemed rather low. He shared his concerns on the streets of Southampton and then citizens from throughout Wiltshire came to participate in the debate. His statement:

Quote :

Few days ago I saw that on Town Hall market :

steel ounces 1,00 6 1 2 3 4 5 6
wood bushels 1,00 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
iron ore ounces 1,00 10

So when I saw that, already somebody were trying to buy them.

Then I posted that on Southampton's forum and later when TheSnowMan admit that he was bought the products I posted it in Prosecutor Thread.

The charges centered on whether or not a mayor could make a trade deal with himself while in office. TheSnowMan's defense was:

Quote :

I shall start at the beginning, Your honor,
About a month and a half ago Dugustus offered to trade wood for fish. I agreed to trade. when his trader arrived he had 10 bushels of wood and lots of over stock that we did not need. I told Dugustus and the trader that 10 bushels was a slap in the face for my 30 fish my regular trading price is 23.00 pounds and he wanted 5.50 pounds for the wood.
Kirtap was at the Red Lion Pub with me the night I finally decided to buy all the traders stuff just to get him out of our town. I even had to take a 2.00 pound cut on the fish so that he could buy them.
Then Dugustus says in a thread that I took advantage of his trader. Then about two weeks later his trader shows up again unannounced and starts putting goods on the market to undercut the producers of the town, again I buy all the goods to keep the market steady "my mistake" the trader leaves.
Then Dugustus slams me again on the forums. At the same time I catch his market spies/fishermen. that is what gave me the idea to become a self sufficient town and have traveling woodcutters I have talked to many of the people in town about this plan Wyntyrkyng,Kitrap among others to be honest I don't recall them all.

Now for the axes Presuming that out new Mayor would not be out of retreat(Ffourone wrote this on 2/17 just before she went into retreat:
Due to some real life issues, I will be unable to connect to the internet in some days, and then be in retreat. I will try to back as soon as possible, but I'm not sure if this will be before or one day after the election.)
in time for me to get started building the axes for the woodcutters. I sold myself the Steel, Iron and wood at 1.00 pound because I did not have the 550.00 pounds. I was not trying to hide anything it was on the open market with about 5 or 6 players on at the same time. my intentions were to make axes and then sell/loan at 140.00 pounds (that's the least that the game will let me sell them for)

We have 3 blacksmiths in town Aflac, Sweetlou142 and I. Aflac is working at the University all the time and only does special orders Sweetlou142 would have to handle the buckets and knives and I would do the axes for the woodcutting plan.

Simple plan,
We need wood and I don't want to pay over 5.00 pounds.
I make Axes for 3-6 woodcutters sell/loan axes to them at 140.00 pounds that is the least that the game will let me sell.
3-4 woodcutters in forest per week if their IP and SP is high enough we can cut between 5-7 bushels a day each 4x7=28x 7=189 bushels a week 189x4=756 bushels in 30 days that is enough wood to last for 1 year with a nice profit for the town to boot.
to repay the TH we sell the wood back at 2-3 pounds per bushel and after TH is paid we sell at 4 pounds then the TH makes 1 pound per bushel profit.
if we want to keep doing this we can sell the extra wood to the other towns in the kingdom.

On 2/17 I posted an add for woodcutters:
In three days I will be on the way to the forest to cut wood for Southampton.

If anyone wants to join me in my quest let me know (PM me) and I will make the axes at a reduced rate.
Hi Ho .....

Dugustus himself even said it was a good plan in his own words:
I agree, there was no crime.
It is perfectly permissable for a mayor to sell himself goods if it was for the betterment of his town.
TSM's idea is so perfectly legal and acceptable that I've attempted to adapt it for the purposes of Winchester.
Thank you TSM for you fine example.

Your Honor,

And last I would like to say that the charges brought before you, your honor of Public Disorder are not withstanding.
I see no crime in the Wiltshire Laws that Subsidizing a citizen or a Shop keeper for the betterment of the town is a crime. My reasons for the subsidizing of myself have been mentioned in full in the above statement. As I am defending myself in this case I ask that the charges be dismissed so that I may proceed with my plan for the betterment of the Town of Southampton. If your honer disides not to dismiss the charge, I would like to call Wyntyrkyng , Kitrap ,Solumn and Lorudce as witnesses of my character.

I wish to thank the Court and honorable Judge of Wiltshire for your time and patients in this matter.

This trial saw Count Lorudce and Wyntyrkyng testify as well. Lord Mayor Dugustus was called to testify by the prosecutor but ignored the summons and failed to give testimony.

In a rather unprecedented move, Judge Whit made his ruling and had this to say:
Quote :
The defendant has been discharged.

Based upon the evidence presented in this trial - and unfortunately not all witnesses have presented themselves, I find the defendant - TheSnowMan not guilty of abuse of office.

I think what TheSnowMan has done was most likely for the good of the city, and not for his personal gain. However what he has done was reckless and poorly planned regarding public reaction to such sales between a town and an individual. As such, I recommend that TheSnowMan remove himself of all publicly held and appointed offices and remain that way for a period of sixty days.

Now this cannot be enforced, except by the King - however if TheSnowMan is an honorable man that submits himself to rulings of the Court of Wiltshire he will do so.

We now have a situation in Wiltshire where a defendant is found not guilty, yet the court recommends self punishment for faulty judgment. Continue reading The Herald for the latest news in this ongoing story.

TonyRC found Guilty

After a trial with many lengthy speeches, TonyRC has been found guilty of fraud and convicted to two days in jail.

Judge Lady Vaness wrote:
Due to the involvment I had in a previous case concerning the defendant, and to prevent any abuse of power, the verdict is left to the previous judge Nordicnorn, who statued :
"I would find him guilty of an attempt to manipulate the market of Lewes. Whether it is because the defendant lacks the understanding about how the market economy works, or he did it on purpose, there is no difference. He ignored the plea of the Mayor to sell him back the iron, and somehow thinks he did the town a favor.
Regardless, the law is clear. He made the attempt to manipulate the market of Sussex.
I sentance to two days in jail and 50 pounds fine.
Be thankful that I do not charge with contept of court given the attitude in which you have addressed both members of this court adn the countess in private messages. Further lat it be known that he has been stripped of all title and privledges of the Merchants guild for his behavior."

Formation of the Catholic Church.

This week marks the opening of the 1st church in England...and it's catholic. It may beat around the bush, but it's catholic. Confessors and such are now an in-game reality. The pope is _____.

What do the people think? Silent witnesses caught most of their comments, but if I missed yours please pm me (Nataniel).

It is historically correct for the time set of our game to have this affiliation with the Catholic Church. Now, this has NOTHING to do with religious freedoms nor choices. This has EVERYTHING to do with historical seats of power in the mid 1400's. I am going to cross-post this explanation:.

Yes, it is appropriate if the time period is 15th century. That was before Henry the VIII kicked the catholic church out of England and started the Church of England!

Dugustus wrote:
Although I'm a firm believer in evolution.
There is not a single organizism from man to microbe that evolution cannot be seen given an appropriate time frame.
Whoever I also believe that an outside force has been occasionally at play in this process.
Having researched and been part of many different religions from simple curiousity to being an ordainded priest. My view of God is somewhat personally evolved.
The key problem with almost all modern world religions is they are all humanocentric and place an undue significance on this particular mud ball that in universal terms has less significance than a single dot on a grain of sand among all the words oceans.
This is further humanocized by the belief that any of our actions has any significance to an entity capable of having an outside perception upon our entire universe.
I believe such a being could exist, an instigator of the big bang and a guiding hand to the creation of the spender that is our universe.
As all these things are determined in nanotime on a quantum leverl the instant of the big bang.
I also believe in quantum theories regarding multiple universes and other dimensions we cannot percieve.
"Spiritual" beings could easily exist therein also a primal life force could exist within and exend an effect on our progress.
I seperate 'god' the creator, from 'god' the divine influence, but I do none the less have faith that such a being(s) exist.

That said, I believe much of what all the faiths based out of the old testiment is in fact an erronious interpitation of more ancient Summerian beliefs.
The tribe that became the isrealites did not origionate in isreal.
It origionatied in what is now northern Iraq in the foothills of Mt. Ariat.
They were captured and made a slave tribe by the Babylonians, held for a few generations (where in the Babylonian mythos (re: Summerian) was adopted) then sold as a tribe to Egypt.
Wherein attepting to return to thier one god beliefs ascribed all the events of Summerian Mythos (Creation, Adam and Eve, Flood, Noah's Arc, Tower of Bable) attributed to a parethenon of Gods, to one God.
This is why some of the wierd thing about Genisis are at hand,
Let US make man in OUR image, for example.
The word for rib in Summerian is also the word for lifeforce(or blood) as another example.
The word for sand in summerian is can be used for mud (specifically potters mud).
Thus adam was made like a potter would make something and eve was made from his blood.
Creation from baser elements (neandratal,cro-mangon) and cloning. :wink
One can even as Zacharia Sinzgen wrote in his books take an abstract look at Summerian mythos and see it could read as a cronicle for a extraterrestrial race adapting to earth.

There is also support from the genisis transcription found on the cornerstone of the hanging gardens. Talking about mars being wiped out by the collision that created the firmament (asteriod belt) and them colonizing an earth populated by apemen servants.
This in turn co-incides with the paintings of tanks, planes, men with guns on the walls of the secret room under the archetect of Chyops pyramid's tomb.

Aliens, wonderful. Well as you can see public opinion is deeply divided over this issue. Will we see another church?

Hopefully we will.


The Universal and Roman Aristotelian Church of England has officially been formed.

With the opening of the church, several have entered the ministry recently. The following list shows all positions in England, both vacant and filled.

    • Metropolitan Archdiocese: Archdiocese of Southwark Greenwich: Dragonflame (Archbishop)
      • Parish of Canterbury: Loyats (Priest)
      • Parish of Dover: (Priest)

        • Parish of Marlborough: (Priest)
        • Parish of Salisbury: (Priest)

Produced and provided by the hand of Baiboe.

Bishops can appoint anyone to be priests for the time being. Later, the requirement to be level 3 of the Church Way will be enforced. As you can see there are several openings throughout the Kingdom.

Bishop Iulius_Catullus has been selected to lead the church and is at work appointing priests.
The Bishop released this statement:
Quote :
I want to say that our Universal and Roman Aristotelian Church is open to all people, regardless of what social rank You are. The Church is still in progress and current posts are now allowed just to more skilled people. In the future, there will be more posts for more people of more social ranks and to take a part in the Church will, maybe, need more effort. So if there is someone interested in choosing of the way of the religion it is better to start building a position in the Church sooner and not to wait until there the next recruitment. Every Bishop needs colaborants to run his office. Every Parish Priest needs Deacons. And every post in the Church needs a loyal servant accepting the Dogma of Vatican with its Canon Law.

  21. There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.
  22. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

FDA News Flash latest update:

In pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and a generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of acetaminophen. Aleve is also called naproxen. Amoxil is also called amoxicillin and Advil is also called ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadud, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix and, of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously, we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails," "highballs," and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink." Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of "MOUNT & DO."
