Words from the Doge
(via his Secretary)
At the Assembly of the Contrades on April 28-30 held on the property of
Machac near Stargate, an appropriate administrator of the heirless land was

some of which came to the attention of the Doge's staff and were rewarded by
tokens from him.
(It was really hard to find out everything he needed to know, while
keeping him from finding out that -- never mind.)
The Doge hopes that many firesides are enlivened by tales of this day, that
the honor and respect they earned are given to all who participated, and that
he hears the tales that have not yet been told to him.
(Yes! Yes! ... Well, let's be careful which tales we tell *him*.)
The Contrade of Raven's Thunder will hold the lands formerly held by Lord
Machac. In addition, to augment their already impressive display, they
received the furnishings of a pavilion -- a table, 3 carved benches, tasseled
floor pillows, banners and banner poles, sconces, candles and stained glass
lanterns, and a painted floor cloth to underlie all.
Furthermore, the Doge assures his people that there is no truth to the rumors
that he is vulnerable to assassination.
(So why did he use that stand-in?)
He expects to live for many years in the peace, gentility, and stability of
the northern Italian city-states. There should never again be need for such
an assembly as this.
