William sits in a wide but naked room with high ceilings and tall windows facing the morning sun. He sits relaxingly on a velvet sofa with ornate gildings on the arms watching with a grin on his face the crowded but comfortable palace square. Through the ten foot bronze doors, the king’s hand walks in briskly wearing a white dress shirt, white stockings, polished leather boots and a yellow long coat with a bleached fur trim. “My lord and friend William, it is time we must discuss our nation’s affairs.”
William stays in his lounging position, still relaxing as he stirs the wine from his goblet. “ I am aware that a forum is being held at the Temple of Isos, please reassure me that we have at least an ambassador competent enough to sit quietly and not cause a stir?”
“Don’t fear my lord, I ousted that buffoon Chasler and sent Mason Tenor. “
“Oh really? My daughter’s husband? I like that kid. He does sound pretentious like all Tenors but he’s got one silver tongue. By the way, he got word about my Government Supremacy Edict, no?”
The Great Temple of Isos
The Hall of Judgement
Mason Tenor, ambassador of The Ansembourg Kingdom sits patiently shuffling his documents. He listens patiently to the Krenth knowing better to not offend the other ambassadors for their race just like the former did. He usually would deny all baseless acussations however the “barbarians” of the frontier do not bother the Anse, therefor he simply doesn’t care. He then see’s the sly ambassador Vorshilov preaching the name of a equal government. He thinks to himself “how does a government run it self if everyone is equal? Someone has to have at least one family that has better privileges so they can lead”.
Mason gets up adjusting his spectacles. “ Great and Honorable lords and gentlemen, I am Mason Tenor, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Ansembourg. I am a little bit unsettled by our colleague Voroshilov. I do not wish to intervene with other country’s political doctrines unless it goes against the Anse. So Voroshilov, to answer your question, I don’t mind about your communistic ways and hope the Confederacy achieves greatness however, I advise you to keep your spreading outside of Ansembourg Kingdom for we are not interested. We will take action on foreigners who wish to disobey our Government Supremacy edict by deporting them and we shall execute repeat offenders. I am terribly sorry that we must go down this road but we enjoy the current approach on government and we hope that we may engage in some private discussions on trade after the assembly. Thank you.” He sits back down slowly.
“ Next is I must bring forth to your attention that we should open our trade restrictions. I caught news that our distant neighbors the Ilisians are in need of new war technology. With your permission I shall send Diplomat Travis with a royal escort on a transport ship.”
“Yes yes of course.” William takes a hearty gulp of wine as Daniel walks over to the telegrapher that is restricted to the Palace alone and begins to type up the message “Please get Travis on his way. See if we can also sell the mountains of ores being unused in exchange for some fruits and veggies. I have noticed on my stroll through the market district that the restaurants have marked up apples a whole ten crown. “
Daniel nods to Williams request as he receives a telegram stating that Travis is ready to make is journey to Ilisia.
“Now Daniel, is that everything?” William gets up pouring a goblet of wine for Daniel.
“I guess that should be all that requires your approval. The council and I shall be rendezvousing for brunch at the hanging gardens in an hour.” Daniel receives the goblet from William “ For Brilliancy and for the Future, my Lord.” The two clank metals and finish the contents in unison.
