    @Corlupi- Protip: Being dead means your buckler doesn't block your fingers! Renn should try it sometime >:)

    Great video, Cuch! I think a lot of our players will find it very instructive. Even I picked up a tip or two. smile

    ...but, come on, lute *and* buckler? No wonder Mors' music wakes the dead, what with him playing the strings with his teeth. tongue

Parchments such as the one below are posted on a few locations in Steinkreis, in the poor and middle-class areas. Some are slipped under doors seemingly at random. Many are simply spread out on the streets for anyone to find.

Where is your king?




You necks have been bent before the throne for a long time.
Within you, the people, lay the power to choose your own leaders.
When you awaken to realize you are the ones that give your leaders power, no force can stop you.
The day where you can rule your own future is close at hand.

Tyranny begone!
Long live the Republic!

One of the notes is taken and pinned to a wall outside the Flying Mug, staked their with an expertly sharpened knife, its hilt wrapped in pure white leather.

"Littering is a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of fifty gold or equivalent goods.

Served and witnessed."

Discarded sheets are gathered by an enterprising young kindling-seller, who folds and twists the pages into paper roses, which he sells for a few coppers apiece.

These "peasants' petals" are a sensation, after a society wag turns up sporting one in his tricorne at Lord and Lady W— 's supper party. The fad spreads, particularly among fashionistas, the newly wealthy, and the sort of people who believe that adopting the trappings of a different class, however contrived, will make one appear forward-thinking and broad-minded.

"Gharos is seen in the impoverished areas of Steinkeis now and then. Paying a hundred coins for a rumor and fifty for a far-fetched tale, the first impression would be that he wants to learn what is happening in the city. However, sums of about a hundred coins are given out seemingly for nothing, and apparently to random commoners." ( Rumors )

As Jalla made a visit to the School in Lowtown, to work some more on preparing her lesson plan to start teaching there, she heard the people in the street commenting upon their good fortune, how some 'nice man' was giving away lots of gold for trifles of gossip.

Curious, she stopped an old lady and asked who this person might be, or at least what he looked like. As if to imply that she might want to take advantage of his offer herself. The reply unmistakably described Gharos.

Diego noticed the many suspicious flyers around steinkreis. he shaked his head and looked around him. some kids were playing tag instead of doing their schoolwork or chores. He gave them a pretty penny for a child to gather some of these up and dispose of them in a proper manner.

Citizenship is different than the existance as a subject.

Citizenship does not mean the right to pay misdirected taxes and make way for marching soldiers.

Citizenship does not mean to silently accept the small ruling elite making the laws for you to live by.

Citizenship entitles you to the right to vote.
Your right is to be heard by your government.
Your right is to change your rulers if they do not keep your best interests close.

Your right is the right to representation.
Long live the Republic!

Has your situation improved while you have waited?


One day there will be no tyrant ruling over you.

One step, one courageous stride, will bring about that day and deliver you from tyranny.

Look amongst yourselves and consider those who hold the greatest respect, the highest wisdom, the swiftest decisiveness and the most even-handed judgement. Those are the people you should entrust to govern, not the tyrant. The day will come when you chose your rulers yourselves. From every part of the city the best of you, those you trust to make the best decisions, will gather to form a Senate. The Senate will ensure that all citizens are represented, and that the loss of no single individual will leave the city leaderless.

No one individual should hold too much power, or he will distance himself from the people he is to serve, and serve only himself.

Long live the Republic!
