Dear Citizens of New Magincia,
As you all know a new Election cycle is happening right now. The Nominees are declared and the Voting has begun. I write to you today to humbly ask for your vote based on the involvement and care that I have had for the Atlantic Community.
This Fall I will have been a member of the Atlantic Community for 16 years, all on Atlantic. Many of you know me as the Caretaker of Goodman’s Rune Library. I take that responsibility very seriously and try to be respectful to his memory and ideals. Many wonderful people have helped me keep the promise that I made to him with their support & caring for 8 years now.
I have been involved in many Community Building activities over this time including helping build two Player Run Communities. The Kingdom of Dalriada was an active Island City in the old days where many events and occasions were enjoyed by citizens of the Realm. The City of the Blue Crane currently resides in Zento, Makuto and includes Goodman’s Rune Library, Goodman’s Atlantic Portal and the Grand Britannian Repertory, the largest Library of Player written books on any Shard amongst other fine and outstanding buildings & players who contribute to the Culture of our Great Shard.
I hold a very large Soulstone Repository for the returning citizens of Britannia in the Goodman Portal and Goodman’s Rune Library has donated gold, support and time to many Player Run Events on the Shard.
I have been involved for many years with Citizens of the Realm who together work for the preservation of Atlantic’s grand old buildings including Leiah’s Rune Library, Serpent’s Cross Tavern & The Mage Tower in Felucca. Goodman’s Portal has many of these old sites attached for those who appreciate our past. I also am a great believer in promoting those establishments that stand the test of time like The Red & Purple Mini Mall or The BookStore as well as many new and upcoming buildings & establishments like the HHYC Hostel for new citizens and The Atlantic Auction house.
These connections are important to me because I believe that all playstyles have an important part in the story of our world. For several years off and on I have volunteered for Stratics and filled several roles. During my time as News Administrator I encouraged themed reporters to cover all aspects of the spectrum of playstyles. Feluccian, RolePlay, Decor, Rares, Merchant, all have important stories to tell.
I hope that more of you with different playstyles will join and participate in the Governors’ elections & meetings because I believe that it is not just RolePlayers that can have fun with this government.
If you are a veteran of the Atlantic Shard or a new arrival, the Government of King Blackthorn is open to everyone and will be what we make it. The Governor’s, whomever they be this time, will need your support and participation so please consider helping out and volunteering in your towns. You will meet many fine people that may become long time friends. You will help revive our cities & bring new life to our worlds.
During my first term as Governor of New Magincia, I had some challenges but thanks to the support of my friends & citizens, we worked hard together to bring some fun activity to the cities. During my term, I submitted municipal requests to His Royal Highness for the following:
1. Protection for the Citizens of New Haven from murderers, scammers and thieves.
2. A Stablemaster near the New Magincia Stalls.
3. To be able to hire the other missing Merchants since the wars. ie Mage shops etc.
4. A Dock for the North side of the Island
5. A Cultural Center/Meeting Place.
During my term, New Magincia survived the Blockade of the Privateers of Vesper and Commerce flourishes again and I kept the City Trade Deal active for my citizens.
Should I be reelected this term, I would welcome the ideas and participation of every citizen whether it be for New Magincia or for the betterment of the entire Realm. I will remain dedicated to the Community of Atlantic as I have for all these years whether I am elected or not because it is my home.
Thank you very much for your support.
