    Welcome to the States General Assembly Hall.

    This ares is ONLY for ELECTED AND APPOINTED MEMBERS OF THE PEOPLE TO DEBATE!

    Nothing is too small and too big to being up here, but we have a few rules to follow.

    ==============

    Rules for EG.

    1) While you may make honest criticisms, baseless accusations against our Soverign will be looked upon severely.

    2) You must keep all comments CIVIL. Anything not within the purview of diplomatic language will also be looked upon severely.

    3) You must fullfill your duties, or risk being dismissed fro your post. Repeated failures of a Faction Rep to partipate will be looked upon VERY severely.

    4) A Clerk of the Realm (Lord Regent of the Crown) will serve the EG and keep order in this Hall. The Clerk will be chosen for his or her skills from among the peerage.

    ===

    So, we will give it a few days for all to file in, please feel free to chit-chat about whatever you wish. Formal topics for discussion will be submitted by the Clerk.

    ===

    DO NOT POST HERE IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN FORMALLY ADMITTED!

    I'm not sure the Clerk of the Realm should be a representative. That might give one rep more power over the other reps. It might be a good idea if say the Regent would be the Clerk of the Realm. Although this would eliminate me from being a rep, there would not be a need for more power distribution among the reps.

    Point taken.

    The Lord Regent shall be the Clerk of the Realm.

    I suggest we keep records of the minutes here. Perhaps all posts between turn sessions could be lumped with its turn session. Faction and independent Reps should also have to go through a re-election process every few TC's, or have some kind of accountability measure.

    Excellent suggestion, Lord Civius. I shall make note of this in the Charter.

    I hope the Estates General are aware of the scheduled play session next saturday, and I would like to ask if there are any specific requests from the Estates General for this 7 (probably) turn play session.

    Well, I didn't put that much detail in the Charter, but the Constitution will include it.

    There will be a Council Meeting this week before the Turn Session. Hopefully before Saturday, if we can swing it. I've downloaded the mIRC again, but it's been so long since I've used it, I may need your help in setting up the room, dutchfire.

    Anytime from now until the weekend is fine by me. We really do need a Council Meeting.

    Just connect to the irc.irc-chat server, and then join the #turnchat channel, easy as it can get.

    You could ask Chieftess (I suppose) for some admin rights in the channel if you want, dunno if she will give them though.

    Ok, thanks. I suppose admin rights are not really neccessary if you are there (or someone who can mute non-Council members or whatever).

    Now we just need a time and date. Is everyone good for Friday about lunchtime in California? Let's hear some yeas and nays.

    (Some issues to discuss would be nice also. Anyone have an issue?)

    The main topics will be the upcoming war with Babylon and a Research path for our Scientists to follow.

    Great Regent, your duties are to the Kingdom and its prosperity. You have given me the authority to reinstate the BLG. I am working hard to fulfill my duties, I am but awaiting the deadline for citizens to renew their land grants.

    I request a quorum call. Each Estates General member should now post his name and what Aretan province or cause he represents.

    Edit: For the record, and which faction he represents.

    As Clerk of the Realm, I hereby summon all Reps to the Assembly Hall to post your name, locale, and/or the Faction you represent.

    Diamondeye, New Giruvegan, Protectors of Faith. Without mIRC. I had interpreted it as the council going on on the forum, and I am OOP until Saturday, so I probably won't be able to be there.

    Well if we have the Council meeting at noon on the Pacific Coast (California time PDT), then it would probably be 3:00pm or 1500hrs in say, Conneticut.
