I apologize to Frozen Feet for neglecting his RP, but I had a post for this one half done already, so I decided to finally get it up. I'm totally in Valorim now, feel free to contact me. I probably won't make any attempts to contact any of you until I'm ready to conquer you. Hey, that's how the Lady rolls.

Gale

“You’re not really helping out our situation at all, Prussian,” Angelo looked to the adventurer. Gale was indeed not accepting visitors, so the arrival strangers at their docks guarded by what seemed to be warriors from Avernum was met with open hostility. Soldiers had their weapons drawn, and there must have been a hundred empire archers pointing their deadly arrows at Angelo’s entourage. This wasn’t counting the crowd of angry citizens that stood behind them with pitchforks and rocks already prepared. Angelo hadn’t been in Gale since he was a child, but it really hadn’t changed all that much. “Lower your weapon, Prussian.”

The adventurer slowly obeyed, “You better have a damned good plan to get us out of this, my lord.”

“I’ve spent the last few months thriving in hell, I should hope at the very least I would know how to deal with a few of my fellow Imperials.” Angelo looked down to the wooden box he was carrying, then back to the crowd. “In the name of the Empire, have your leader come forward.”

A greasy-haired middle-aged man surrounded by guards stepped forward, he was booed by the crowd, and, as he stepped forward, people threw rotten fruit and vegetables at him. “Who are you, strangers? Unless you’re envoys sent by the Crown itself, I suggest you leave before I can no longer hold them back.”

Angelo planned his response carefully, “We are the envoys of a great power, come to reclaim the land. We demand a meeting with the Mayor of this town.” Angelo stood firm. Prussian wondered how Angelo thought he was in a position to be making such demands. The young lord’s confident demeanor must have been working, however. The Mayor reluctantly saw them to the city hall, though he probably just did this to get away from the ravenous crowd, who continued to throw various items at him as he fled. The group was soon sitting down with him in the hall.

“I hope you’ve been having better luck wherever your from. Things here have really been spiraling downward lately.”

Angelo leaned close to the Mayor, “My friend, I must come clean with you. I am, in fact, representing an Imperial noble, a true one. Even now she awaits a only the appropriate time for her triumphant return.”

The Mayor smiled for the first time in months, “It can not be! Are you serious? Why didn’t you mention this before?”

“Building catharsis. Never underestimate the power of revelation.” Angelo pulled out his wooden box and began to fiddle with the lock. Suddenly, Prussian stopped him, placing a hand on his shoulder.

“My lord, the Lady… she gave me this note. When I explained to her the situation in Gale, she wrote this and told me to give it to you before you opened your little box.”

Angelo put the box down and accepted the note. “The seal is broken…”

“What, it’s not like I had a damn clue what the note meant anyway.”

Angelo shook his head and read the message. He seemed confused at first as well, but suddenly frowned when he realized its meaning. He looked to the Mayor. “You’re not very popular around here, are you, my friend?”

The Mayor slouched in his chair. “We have fallen on hard times. I’ve tried so hard, but I can barely maintain control of the people inside these walls, and the nearby cities are practically at war with me. Food is low, we’re almost out of money. The damn anarchists outside have practically been trying to kill me for weeks! Does your master have an army? Can you quell the chaos outside? I don’t want to hurt them but they really leave me little choice.”

“Yes, yes. Worry not, my friend. No civilians need be harmed, and you will no longer need to bear the burden of leadership here.”

The Mayor smiled again, “The city is yours. But don’t expect the people here to welcome you with open arms so soon. Noble or not, it will take work. I am willing to do my part.”

Angelo was frowning deeply now. “Oh, they will welcome us. They will love us. But first, I must take something from you. Do not worry, I will give it back, and I assure you that you and your family will be taken care of when this is all over.”

“Look, you have my city, what more could you possibly…”

“Your head. I need your head.”

There were a few seconds of silence before the Mayor responded, terrified, “I have been a loyal Imperial all my life! I have done nothing wrong! I’ll pledge my loyalty to you! I’ll do anything! Don’t do this! Please!” Angelo nodded to Prussian, and then moved towards the door. He did not want to see what was about to happen. “No! My lord! Don’t! Plea- aaaahhhcschhhh.”

-

Angelo looked down at the note that Prussian had given him, written in his mother’s elegant hand:

Borrow a head to calm a mob.

As always, her stratagem had worked brilliantly. Even now, he could hear the people outside, cheering. Gale belonged to the Lady now, at the cost of one good man. It seemed unnecessary, but she must have been testing him to see if he could be brutal when he was called upon to be. He had passed her test. Hopefully, the other cities would bow to her without any bloodshed. He patted the as of yet unopened box in his lap. Yes, Anglo believed they would.

I'm in a generous mood, so I'll choose to remember him as Moses leading his people on the Exodus from Egypt, rather than the scumbag he was portrayed as in Bowling for Columbine. Or as Ben-Hur defeating the evil romans in an epic chariot race rather than as the President of the NRA. What an interesting person.

someone'll make a canister making you resistant to the withdrawl symptoms, or you can be altered that way.
Oh, sort of like the canister they made that cures the side effects caused by normal canisters? Oh, wait, they never made that canister. Not everything can just be solved with magic, you know. Why not just use a strength canister instead of a strength canister with negative side effects? Skribbane canisters just seem foolish.

If he is so sure he's a man, why would he choose to go through the most woman thing any human can go though? I know they had their reasons and whatnot, but a true man would have said "No way I'm doing that, we're adopting."

That's what Barzites want. Tullegolites have a more refined philosophy to make up for the shortcomings of our predecessors. I would have to further study skribbane canisters before being able to make a judgement on their power. At face value they seem worse, as skribbane has negative effects associated with it.

You feel cramped even though there are less characters? How does that work? And I don't usually have too much trouble with classes. One mage, one priest, one sword guy, one spear guy. What else are you trying to fit in?

But then the person would have to constantly use canisters or suffer withdrawal. And if you take too many too fast, you're skin cracks and you fall apart.

First, skribbane filled canisters were, I believe, Goldenking's thing.

Second, canisters are already perfection incarnate as they are, changing them in any way will only make them less than perfect.

By the way, canisters are the most potent drug in the Spiderweb universe. Skribbane is for amateurs.

I got the rifle and bottles, but he is a definitely korean businessman. You might be right about the short part, though.
