I've been pretty busy with work for the last months, not enough time to dedicate to playing a Peerage person who should be in the know of things, so I'm just taking a break. Not retiring my character or anything, Grayson's out there somewhere, mucking about.

I'll be representing Glitt in the next Peerage Council. If for some reason I'm not available, anyone currently not on duty will do so. There's no set second.

To Halemont,

Come by Glitt hall if you want words in person. But I reckon this is big enough a thing to put forth during Council. And if it is done, Glitt will give it the attention it deserves.

Correspondence / Letter to house Sunpurse
« on: July 31, 2020, 08:52:23 PM »

I send you this letter on behalf of house Glitt to bring up issues we deem to be of great importance. Those of debts, slavery and writs of murder. Therefore, house Glitt wants to propose some new laws, meaning a Council needs to be called. As Sunpurse is the preciding Bannerhouse, I will leave the declaration of calling for Council to You. Glitt will do the summons if necessary, of course. I take it a week from now is not too swift.

I am not one for words, so I have attached a copy of the motions along with this letter, for viewing. The point is not to discuss changes before the Council. Any and all changes, suggestions and objections should be voiced around the table. That is what it is for.

On behalf of house Glitt,

Veteran Grayson Pilkins

Freedom Of Involuntary Servitude Act
At the passing of this act, neither slavery nor any form of involuntary servitude shall be allowed, or exist in the domain of the Peerage, or any of its wards. Should any individual be found breaking this act, a tax of one hundred thousand groats shall be levied upon them and their estate. They will forfeit any materials, or wealth gained using the labor of slaves or debtors, to those who labored for it. If they are unable to pay the tax, they will be put to death.

Dismantling of Inherited Debt, Revision One
At the passing of this act, no more shall any kin or kith, inherit the debt of a family member within the Domain of the Peerage and its wards. The debt shall now die with the holder of it. Should any creditor be found breaking this act, they will be paraded in Ticker Square, and placed in the stocks for two nights and days. Given bread and water by the Blackjacks, then released. The sum of what they gained from unlawful debt payment, shall be paid back to the debtor. And an additional five hundred groat shall be levied for the payment of Blackjacks. If they are unable to pay this additional levy, a number of items equal to the sum will be taken and sold.

Abolishment of the “Assassin” Guild, Revision Two
At the passing of this act, murder is once more illegal and the legality of Writs of Murder, destroyed. No order of death can be placed on a soul by any group aside from the Royal Court, The Houses, and The Guilds of Ticker Square, and only if the subject is a credible threat to the Peerage Ward, and its wards. Should a group, or person be found breaking this act, they will be put to death.

Notices and Bulletins / House Glitt on TTT (Three Ticker Tax)
« on: July 11, 2020, 01:12:34 PM »
Painstakingly written by someone obviously not used to writing official documents, pauses of deep consideration apparent between words.

The Council of Peers recently issued a tax on three Ticker individuals. This may seem cruel and opportunistic to some, considering the state we find this ring in. However, it was decreed these three should be fined due to their lack of loyalty and integrity during the Torc invasion. They switched their loyalties, even fled the ring and declared it doomed. And now that we have victory over the Torc armies, and there is peace, they are back as if nothing ever happened. It is a fitting punishment, to lessen the weight of their purse.

House Glitt knows not what the other Great Houses plan to do with their groats to be gained. Glitt, however, would see our share go back to those most touched by the recent war. People who lost their homes, livelihoods, families. To give them a leg up in a new life. To see damages to the Square rebuilt, if only a little. The men who took their things and left for supposedly greener pastures do not owe their groats to Glitt, but to their fellows they left behind.

We do not, however, share in the bloodthirsty will of some, in executing this tax. The sums are great, and more slain lives or cut-off fingers will not help those in need. Therefore, Glitt is open to negotiations with these three individuals, to see these amounts paid in a reasonable manner.

Can't really tell you too much since it's still in the works, but there may be something for all you non-humans to do in the Ward soon. Until then, maybe it would be best to make yourself useful in the Burgage, protecting the farms from mongrels. Show people some skills. If this project that's in the works takes off, then there will be lots to do.

There's nothing more we can offer now. We've given you a chance to huddle in or near the hall. You seem worried for your safety, but I told you how it's going to be earlier. There is no protection, not for now at least. It's a risk you take, being in the Ward. For someone with time on her hands, you seem to be in a hurry. I get the need for revenge, but that won't be happening anytime soon. No matter which house you turn to, the Torcs will have to wait.

If you want purpose, seek out Niven of Velstra. Maybe she will be willing to discuss the project and find some use for you in it.

Bug Reports / Re: New Glitt bugs
« on: June 20, 2020, 05:33:40 PM »
Okay, found another Glitt bug with the updated masterwork armours.

There's no masterwork version for the platemail armour in Wull's shop. There is one by name, but it's a medium armour, statwise it appears to be the breastplate's masterwork version with the wrong name. So the current 'platemail' needs to be renamed as a masterwork breastplate, and the actual heavy armour platemail version needs to be added.

Notices and Bulletins / Glitt announcement in the Peerage
« on: June 06, 2020, 05:04:01 PM »
The following announcement is written on a parchment, hung in the Peerage for all there to see. The penmanship is far from the best, and it is clear the writer is not used to writing down sophisticated words. One can almost see the pause and consideration between each word.

This is a document to discuss the recent troubles in the Ward regarding house Glitt on the subject of Mu Ticker Square and the Copper Torcs.

After the unanimous Council vote on the motion of aid being given to Ticker Square on the condition they agree to the terms of vassalage, Glitt retainers Gunne and Horiksson still went to assist in the defence. To clarify the matter, there was no official word or order given to act as such. These actions did not represent the official stance of house Glitt on the matter.

It can, I believe, be understood why these two did what they did. For the sake of attempting to ensure the lives of mothers and children are not lost in this war. It is what the Glitt Code expects of us. At the same time, the Code expects us to always be truthful in our word. And in this sad situation, deeds did not follow the word given. And so we have come to where we are now.

Milk has been spilled and the remaining stench is there for us all to smell. Repercussions have happened as I knew they would. Duels were held according to tradition, the results of which have been accepted and will not be contested. Death was on the table, but none ate off the platter. For that we are thankful.

We move on.

The letter is finally collected, and read. Maybe a response will be coming as well.

Think it's about time to start looking into that Glitt business we had a chat about before. I have a feeling it might get real dangerous and ugly, so I reckon we should meet up to talk details in person. Payment and whatnot.

Bug Reports / Re: Something weird going on with arrows

Little update in case this is still in need of fixing. The ice arrows drop from morghoul archers at least. Also, when I pick them up myself, they stay as ice arrows. So it's the trading that makes them change. Changeling arrows?

I have no idea, other PCs keep giving me theirs. Best guess? The kobold lair quest in the Crosscurrents.

Bug Reports / Something weird going on with arrows
« on: May 09, 2020, 01:52:07 AM »
So, I've had this happen to me a few times, now. Another PC gives mine a small stack of ice arrows. The ones with the picture of a black shaft and white feathers, doing 1 extra cold damage. But when they transfer over to my inventory, they turn into goblin acid arrows, which do 1 acid damage instead. It's a pretty weird bug, and only seen it happen with these ice arrows.
