    ooc: Trial of Christos

    A verdict has been reached, but unfortunately proper procedure was forgetten due to the length from this trial to the last. Therefore to ensure retroactively that the trial is valid and legitimate you now have time to go to the social group, look at the trial and if you disagree with the decision made after seeing the proceedings challenge the verdict. If no one challenges the verdict will stand and the accused will face life incarceration for the crimes of assasination and attempted assasination.

    OOC: I know, but I count all PCs as nobles (wether lower or upper).

    ooc: the fact remains that he's a commoner like we all were at the beginning (except plyplay) until he gets a job in politics. And really you call everyone nobles, but do you really think that Christos is a noble, he couldn;t pay for your legal fees... how noble is that. :p

    OOC: I guess you're right. But if I am not a noble, with the amount of $$$ in my coffers, something is seriously wrong.

    ooc: your a minister, ergo you are a noble and all your descendants are nobles. Either way though, your income is probably inferior to mine :lol: (although I try to burn my gold in actions to avoid the spoiled brat problem)

    OOC: Most likely. Being a member of the ruling triumvirate must have its advantages. ;)

    And I would like to remind people that, currently, there are 2 works by the House Tambien out.

    ooc:yeah, we pretty much divided the land 30/30/30 with the rest given out to people we like or the Church or it was already owned by people :lol:, although Im not sure about land in Babyloparsa (other than the fact royal nepotism occured) you might like to check there if your hungry for land.

    ooc: its not exactly like that mind you, im just roughly expressing the fact we made many a land deal to keep the balance of land power within the triumvirate, and that because we have oodles of money we could afford to buy up land where other people could not due to the crushing poverty of a minor noble :lol:. Non-triumviral people and organisations do own more than 10% of the land though maybe 20 or perhaps 30%.

    ooc: interesting idea. toe a single step out of line and fall out of political neutrality and you should be aware of the consequences (case in point the fate of the coup people) ;)

    ooc: good good, because the urge to wipe the slate is so very much rising and it would be a shame if you were to invoke it. (that and I am in the mood for bullying people ooc with vague threats atm :p)
