     Game Update #320b   in sequence (file #526)
     Admin notes: None

    From Jordi: [Re: Certain City]
       [Email part not shown]
    GM:You emailed me about questions on a city.  I did answer you
       but if you didn't get it let me know.

    From Sergi:
      Don't worry, everybody has real life problems.  I hope your
      brother recovers quickly from his leg infection.
    Scott: It will be 2 weeks Tuesday.  He'll likely be in over
      X-mas and likely new years.  Antibiotics aren't working and
      its a rare bug it seems.  Thanks for asking.  

    From Jordi: [Re: 3 Months]
      When the actions in Marentia are ended, I will send you an
      e-mail with Jordi's actions for the next 3 months.  They won't
      be complicated:
    GM: Opps.  Realized you sent that not to the list so won't post
      the other stuff.  As to 3 month actions being complex don't
      worry about it.  Alex's stuff was far more complex than yours
      so you can beef it up if you want.  :)

    From Unali: [Re: Actions]
      Unali will attend Suresh' wedding
      She will talk to Kaylle to get more info on the Blue Gauntlets.
      [Other stuff not shown]
    GM: Suresh is glad to have you attend and opens a invitation to
      everyone.  Even Duke Aren and Marta join in the event.
      It takes 2.5 months for Kaylle to learn details of the gauntlets.
      He states that there were expenses involved but doesn't directly
      ask for reimbursement.  He states he had to pay some contacts
      and other scholars off for research that came to about 22 silver
      in total which also includes messengers to dispatch that information.
      He says a old scholar in Bhamotin had done most of his life studies
      on unique armor items including gauntlets.  After 2.5 months the
      news returns to Kaylle.  It seems the Blue Gauntlets were a one
      time manufacture in the lands of the Mopazi.  Some 93 Years ago
      a Lion Claw Lodge Great Warrior who battled a evil wizard and
      its minions of chaotic creatures was given them as an award by
      the lodge and tribes.  He would later become chief there and
      rule for 12 years until his death from illness.  It has no magic
      value as stated previously.  It seems the blue metal was actually
      found in the hills near the tribes and was only enough to make
      this one item.  The blue color is not dyed or fake but in fact
      the color of the metal.  The Gems in it are inset by the best
      smiths of the mopazi.  Since there is only one item of such
      quality is is rare and priceless.  If the Bhamotin scholar could
      afford it he would buy it but his lifetime of pay could likely
      not ask for it.  Kaylle later states that the Mopzai aren't rih
      either and being a national treasure they would likely have to
      bankrupt their entire tribe to get it back.  But they have been
      looking for it for the last 15 years.  It seems it was stolen
      by a thief in the area who heard of the gauntlets and that
      thief later sold it to his guild in Porta.  From there the
      trail ends but it seems Clima obtained it.  The documents
      Kaylle found seem to indicate it was found on a Donaran castle
      looted by the Climans in a test of their first airship.  Its
      clear that the mopazi wish it back but could not afford it.
      As GM I can't put a price to it per se.  :)

    [Day 36 - King's Audience]
    From Chion: [Re: Reward]
       Chion states: "Your Majesty. As is easily evident, I am not
       from these parts. I extend upon behalf of my homeland warm
       regards to your Kingdom. I am in need of travel rights to
       return to my homeland. In order that I may do so easier, I
       ask only that I be permitted a written travel notice to legally
       expadite my return home. As I will be travelling through other
       Lord's realms, I ask that it include notice to any who you
       have agreement with, so that they might not hinder my travels.
       Notice that I am to be treated as a free person on my journey,
       whom rightly owns his belongings. Thank you your Lordship."

   King [After a short pause of reflection] "Your homeland is where?
     You also state you are a freeman.  But implying that you should
     not be otherwise.  Should we be apraised of something?" 

   [Z'leyra approaches for her audience with the King.]
   GM: Much text deleted.  It was posted and is seen on the list
     so no need to repeat it here.  Very detailed :)

   [The King stands from his plush chair listening to the words of
    Z'leyra calmly and with cool fashion.  He ever so slightly
    glances at the group of his courtiers as Z'leyra speaks for
    their reaction.  As he does he grabs a piece of grape or grabs
    for a wine glass while hearing Z'leyra and juding the reaction
    of the others.  Z'leyra on the other hand knows enough to
    stare ahead and only watch the king.   When the words that
    it would be located in the poor district a few in the group
    of Courtiers fidget.  A very subtle smile gleams from the
    King however.  Whenh the words are said the school should not
    be taxed a eyebrow shoots up on the King and a well dressed
    man in the Courtiers shakes his head.  When Z'leyra talks of
    the funding the King glances and stares at Z'leyra fully
    now and a solem face is seen.  When Z'leyra finishes the King
    ponders the request.  He then turns to Z'leyra.]
   King: "Just a moment.  Please have some drink or food."

   [He then walks quietly over to the courtiers where a discussion
    of his advisors occur.  Z'leyra notices at least 2 well dressed
    men shaking haeds.  Another well dressed male but in robes
    talking quickly.  A military officer also speaking to the
    King.  After about 5 minutes the King raises a hand to end
    the discussion and then turns back and walks back to the
    center table.  He places down his wine glass and eyes the
    party over and then back toward Z'leyra.  He places both
    of his hands on the table and slumps over.  Then realizes he
    is doing so and stands tall.  A slight grimace quickly fades
    from his face as if sometimes being a King is a pain.]

   King: "A noble request.  A bold request.  Where would this
     school be placed which domain or city?  Putting it into the
     poor district would help the poor but alienate the other
     classes.  Of course the nobility have their own private
     healers. [A slight pause] The priests I would have to deal
     with this situation.  Some of them try to deal in the areas
     of healing for their flock of followers.  These healers
     would only work one day a week?  If you hire them what would
     they do the rest of the week?  [Another pause] "My advisors
     do not like the tax part you mention.  But I do know you wish
     this school to be state run am I right?  You would not run the
     school?  You would only be part of it?  Are you asking that
     I or my people fund the school initially and then continue
     to fund it even with no gaurentees of success or did I mis
     understand and that you would do the intial funding?  My
     general here claims if it has no tax status that his troops
     should get free healing.  The administrator idea sounds
     good enough.  I could assign someone though my chief healer
     [he waves a hand at the group behind him] seems to possibly
     want that job.  This school would be a non profit organization?
     Why not return to Ticasi so aid there.  I understand they
     have a great school of healing.  I am honored by the request
     and am intrigued.  My final questions to you will determine
     my answer.  This school is it a school for teaching healers
     or for healing the poor?  What part will you have in this school?
     Will it have a policy to turn away any that can't afford your aid
     and if there is such a policy can you handle a situation if that
     were to get out?  Your school could be swamped with those who
     wish to be healed."

    GM: Will wait for answers from Z'leyra and Chion.


   This leaves rewquests by Ben'dar, Jordi and Unali.  There
   is no rush though as this is a holiday weekend.  I don't
   expect answers.  In fact I won't be hurt if nothing is for
   monday if I do a update.  

   I'm working on 3 months for Unali and Ben'dar and slightly
   on Z'leyra and Jordi.  Still will be emailing you guys
   when I get time to do so.  I'm working on finishing up the
   last of the 2 weeks (Z'leyra).  Once I'm done (99% done). I'll
   work on the 3 months stuff.  I already have material from
   Unali and Ben'dar enough to work with.  Will be emailing you
   guys with questions or results when I can.  This may take
   a bit of time.  See the other post for format and suggestions
   if you'e not done so far.

   Update?  Dunno when.  Might do a quickie monday.  At this
   point the adventure is over.  Just alot o work to do on my

   The website is still not updated as I can't do write access.
   So gotta get that fixed at the ISP when I can.

   Merry Christmas!
