Althing Minutes 10/4
* Peasant Rule
Peasant rule will be enforced starting next weekend (Oct 18th)
Loaner garb will be made available, with priority given to new players
New players may play level 1 without garb if there is no appropriate loaners available
* Class Testing
Class testing is required to level.
The official process for class testing will be voted on at the next Althing.
Suggested process for this month:
1. Demonstrate / explain how abilities gained that level worked to guild master.
2. Guild master corrects anything that was incorrect.
Issues brought up.
1. Guild masters may need to test to level up if they are not 6 yet.
2. Guild masters are not always available for testing.
* Look the Part
As the monarch, I will only be granting Look the Part for any people wearing full garb.
That means nothing obviously modern at a distance should be visible.
If you want it awarded specifically for class portrayal and aren't meeting my requirements, please ask your guild master instead.
* Event Announcements
Maize Maze / Las Cruces Ren Faire will be held Oct 31st - Nov 2nd.
There is no camping at the event, but there is a nearby camp ground and plenty of locals usually willing to allocate floor space. ( https://www.facebook.com/amtgardmaze )
Pegasus Valley Weaponmaster and Dragonmaster are Nov 22nd, details to be announced
Pegasus Valley Midreign is Dec 13th, details to be announced
Talifer is requesting articles for the newsletter.
* Other Business
** Balder mentioned that we have been having issues with some players relying too heavily on the loaner weapons and that new players sometimes do not have access.
** A motion was made to excuse officers for attending Maize Maze, which passed
** A motion was made to excuse Belthil for attending Dragonspine Crown Qualifications, which passed.
** Shadydeal brought up that you should not hit people while they are talking to a reeve. So please don't do this.
** Belthil brought up a 3 strikes policy for complaints of people or their weapons hitting too hard.
If you cannot resolve an issue with the player you are fighting, let Belthil know so he can deal with it.
We received reports of another frontier keep attack. These goblins were supplied with a large amount of explosives made by unknown suppliers in Pegasus Valley. They attempted to explode the barricades of the keep, but were quickly thwarted. Due to this unknown treachery, and the insecurity of our borders, Legate Glenalth has instituted martial law, effective immediately. An active curfew at sundown in now in place. I will be aiding Prefect Belthil and Xantcha in enforcing this curfew, with a contingent of summoned creatures, watchful drones, and the reports of our good populace.
Last night we had an outbreak of guild warfare, but it was swiftly quelled, and many of these offenders were caught and jailed. However, a small group evaded our grasp and made off with contraband and guild property. This criminal activity and infighting within our city will not be tolerated. We must all do our part to be strong and keep our populace safe by reporting law-breakers and obeying the law.

There seems to have been some confusion as to what park we are meeting at. Tomorrow (9/20) will be at Taylor Park.
There will also be members off at the Santa Fe Ren Faire on Saturday and Sunday for Food Fight fundraising and hopefully getting more people interested in the game. Please stop by or better yet, get out there and help. We are currently short on people for staffing the booth on Saturday.
The first War Report, posted for posterity.
With our Legate off on foreign affairs, we attempted to take back a small, monster infested village. The numbers were against us, as Goblins sprung from their hiding holes, more aggressive than usual. The ankle biters, coupled with a marauding Orc band, and one very angry Troll, drove us out. A small contingent managed to stave them off in the safety of the farm, and a few enterprising adventurers retrieved a chest of Equuins from under the nose of the Troll.
Our losses were too great, and we are in full retreat. We request full military action from the Duchy at once.

Our once-great land is threatened.
I have learned of a great danger, stronger than steel or fire. The vampiric infestation has allowed our crops to rot, as we stopped tilling the earth and tilled the veins of humanity instead. This winter will be harsh, and we must be strong. Stronger than we have ever been. In light of the cold and the invasions, we cannot afford to let our commoners go unclothed. The monsoons will turn to autumn and snow, and our people will die in the saddest of ways, hungry and cold. We cannot allow this threat to our Duchy to continue.
When winter comes, I will sound the bells of feasting. No loyal citizen shall go hungry, and there will be merriment and renewal in the spring time. And rest assured, I will put clothes on those who have none.
I pledge to do everything in my power to save Pegasus Valley and help it grow. The first step is to declare my intention to run for Regent of Pegasus Valley.
By giving me your vote, we can make Pegasus Valley flourish in the arts and prosper. They shall sing of our glories long.
Long live the Valley,

Will you be prepared?
Hard days are ahead for Pegasus Valley.
Due to the recent vampirism outbreak, the usual patrols and purges of the neighboring goblin, orc, and giant tribes have been suspended. These monsters have been unchecked and wreaking havoc on the outskirts our great Duchy for months now. The losses of both people and territory have been enormous. We will shortly be overrun if this is allowed to continue.
Just this morning I was speaking with a child that lost both of his parents to an attack. Before I could find the identity of the attackers the poor child succumbed to his injuries. These monsters must be put down before more atrocities take place.
I will raise a new militia to augment our faltering patrols and personally lead our brave citizens to victory. Equipment will be provided to outfit our citizens without the means to equip themselves. I will open up the Pegasus Valley armory and distribute the wealth of magic items and locked away magics that have gone unused in this time of great need.
I pledge to do everything in my power to rid Pegasus Valley of these dangerous creatures. The first step is to declare my intention to run for Duke of Pegasus Valley.
By giving me your vote, we can make Pegasus Valley a safe place to live once again.
Be weary, there are dangers everywhere,
Duke Glenalth Woodwalke, Defender of the Black Dragon and Knight of the Flame
