As the title. Tested on several different characters. I doubt this is intentional.

My dearest Secretary,

Loyal Milo... You have not disappointed me yet. Your faithfulness in sending me this missive will be rewarded with is so very telling of your character. I am GLAD to see that we all agree that this was a horrible misunderstanding. I have considered your advice and am now taking the day to rest.

I will soon return to my duties as Guildmaster. Until then, please have a warm blanket sent down to this strange hospice in the Drips. As I write this letter, I am exposed in my cot betwixt two very hungry looking "individuals."

Guildmaster of the Union

Public Speeches / The Union of Ticker Square

Quote from: The Doorkeepers
Wester McGinty
My speech on behalf of the Signatory Guild of the Union concerning our vision of Ticker Square's future will now commence in the Open Door, at the podium. Whether I speak to one man or twenty.

Quote
The birth of language was the birth of civilization. Stability, security, and prosperity all gained their proper footing from the power of words. I knew from a young age, toiling in murky gutters behind the mansions of rich aristocrats, that this medium had a strength beyond reckoning. The strength to muster likeminded individuals to a singular vision, and to carve out what small piece of civilization was owed to them.

With this thought fresh in our minds, I ask a simple question. What is owed to you? Who else has taken to the parchment to speak on your behalf? Let’s not pretend that Ticker Square hasn’t been without *unified* leadership for quite some time. [He takes a pause, gathering himself] Now I’ve long sought to deliver the truth in plain—and I won’t bother myself with cute, self-important wordsmanship.

I am... and have always been... an Editor. My job has always *been* to revise and... [He interlocks his fingers messily, as if to convey the sentiment] ...Change. But this impulse to *build* extends far past the written word. It is beyond the parchment. It lays at your very doorstep!

In some short weeks, our humble Union has gone from an idea... to an actionable cause. We have taken our place by the Accountants as a Signatory Guild, and *your* representatives. Unlike those who came before me, I won’t mock your station like some exuberant demon fattened by cheese and wine.

“He’s stumbled into it,” the fiends will say. “He’s only an Editor!” [He scoffs] Have at it then! I know it in my heart—Yes, I am an Editor. I will never feign excellence. No, I draw excellence from the Tickerfolk and their want to strive. To toil. To *earn* what could belong to you, with a healthy dose of *competition* to drive you. Anyone who says otherwise can stuff it.

[He pauses and speaks with a slight hint of incredulity] In the short time I have been here, I have seen things you would not *imagine.* Rich collaborators sacrificing the wellbeing of the everyman to fill their next glass of wine. Monstrous creatures masquerading under the pretense of your well-being... right under your nose. And the next. And so on, as per tradition. [His words drip with venom]

These sights gave me a dual portion of horror and resolve—As they should for you also.

And so the Union was born. An association of Tickerfolk, *for* Tickerfolk. What is our policy, you may wonder? To this, I say it is to defend your prospects from all those who besmirch the Ticker name, in public or in secret. To ensure that the flow of groats will find its way into the pockets of those *deserving.* [He pauses] We WILL not stand idly by and allow these parasites to leech off of your lifeblood any longer. Henceforth I say: your interests are WELL protected!

Yes—We are in the market, selling your bread. We toil upon the docks to receive your goods. We are the *spirit* of Ticker Square. That same spirit that demands hard work, persistence, and is intolerant of those who believe their birthright *owes* them something. We’ll gladly fill in the void left by the Weaver’s Guild, who time and time again refused your pleas in favor of their chaotic and hedonistic ways.

As for the Velstrans’ threats... no longer will Tickerfolk be buffeted by daily winds. [He waves his hand coldly]

--The speech is suddenly interrupted by Oscar Tchamorrar, offering a sack of gold for the Union to disappear. Wester declines the sum, leaving the pair to a hushed exchange that appears amiable only on the... surface-level. Wester then continues, appearing frazzled--

It seems... I must make a slight alteration. I had thought our interests aligned with those of the Quills. It now appears this is no *longer* the case. So -be- it.

My *friends* and I... serve for the welfare of the common man, and so long as the Union persists, we won’t shake from this new path. Those in the Union know that our stakes are equal. And why should we dare to wear gawdy titles? Titles do not feed us in Ticker Square, unlike others in this Ring... our actions do.

And we will see those actions through to the end.

Notices and Bulletins / The Union Declaration

As smoke from the recent night of chaos in Ticker Square rises from the ashes, a paper boy is seen erupting from Ticker Press to nail these posters across anything that might resemble a flat surface.

This time it is a young newsboy who delivers the tabloids, hot off the Ticker Press. The lights within the dusty building shine once more.

A crisp letter finds its way back to the man. The style is plain and technical, and suspicious brackets are placed around certain key words, suggesting a standardized format was used... likely owing to some pointless protocol

Dear reader,


Thank you for your concern. We share your woes of these changelings who hunker betwixt us and linger like an putrescent stench. Have you considered that the annoying banging noise you occasionally hear against the roof of your home is actually a changeling attempting to find weak spots in its structural design? Consider avoiding those who appear friendly with changelings, for they may have already succumbed to the Dark Magic.

Also, we pay a sizable bounty for valuable information, and are currently seeking to hire those who share the values of our organizational culture. Do not hesitate to reach out and seek long-term business arrangements with us. Our upcoming expansion will open many doors for people like you!


Sincerely,
Wester McGinty
Editor-in-Chief of the Scribbling Mouther

Wester stumbles through the streets of Ticker Square and the Peerage Ward alike. His body shows clear signs of late-stage Planar Sickness as posts these tabloids wherever he can manage

The two eager reporters once again make their rounds, delivering newly penned broadsheets to anyone willing to stomach them...



15
These tabloids are posted to various bulletins across Ring 99, though many more yet are rolled up in neat bundles and provided to interested individuals by Wester McGinty and Pepper Possum.
