Minutes for his grace’s duma, 12’th sun’s smile 1697

 

Penned by Laertes de Falstaff

 

 

The Duma was started formally by the Chancellor Basarab after a riveting performance of ‘Sigismund’s lament’ written by and starring the Duchy’s very own Timeo of the Baltas.


 

Firstly as is tradition the Aldermen were chosen from those assembled by the volunteering of three individuals present. These were accepted by the Maer are deliberation with the Chancellor as follows:

  • The Legionnaire Peter Tyrus

  • The Elf Maly’thil

  • The Man simply known as Alfius

Upon the acceptance of the aldermen the Duma was able to begin it’s discourse upon the first item of agenda, this being:

 

On Magik and Magik Licences within the Duchy.


 

The first voice to break the bickering was Artumee Ault, wife of Baron Dario le Blu, voicing her displeasure in there being any use of Magik at all within the Duchy, and that if there was there would be required a public record of all active licences. This was met with general agreement. On a counterpoint the Elf Maly’thil pointed out that Magik itself isn’t inherently bad, rather the abuse of it by users. Then the Adunian Peter Tyrus said something incomprehensible. Alfius stated that there have been issues with Magikal attacks within the Duchy as of late. The proceedings were halted by the whole assembly entranced by a discussion on the best way to kill mages.

The first item was brought up to vote. It was defined as follows: The vote upon the legality of Magik within the Duchy of Adria.

The votes were:

 

In favour

-Maly’thil with one vote

-Alfius with one vote

-The Chancellor with three votes

-The Scrivener with one vote

-Peter Tyrus with one vote

-Constantine with three votes

Against

-Baron Dario le Blu with two votes

-The county of Susa with three votes

-Bruce Rogers with three votes


 

The vote passed 10-8

 

The next item up for vote was on the creation of licenses for magic users within his Grace's Duchy. Constantine was first to speak up from a pontificial stance, and suggested that the overseeing if the licensing of Magik be overseen by the local religious authority. The Chancellor disagreed, suggesting that as it stands, licenses should be overseen by the Magistrates Office of Adria. Then, upon deliberation with the Duc, it was suggested that the position of Minister of Magik be created and appointed at the Duc's discretion.

The item was defined as follows: The limiting of magik via the role of Minister of Magik and Magik licenses.

The votes were:

 

Unanimously in favour with 18 Ayes.

 

The vote passed 18-0.

 

 

On the Practice of Throwing Ducal Dice

 

The next item up for vote was that when throwing the Ducal Dice one must shout, otherwise one cannot be counted to have thrown them. Upon the announcement, Prince-Prior Constantine called to dismiss the motion for fear of bad luck stipulating that one cannot talk about the Ducal Dice unless the Ducal Dice have been thrown, however this was ignored by the Chancellor.

 

The votes were:

 

16 votes in favour, with only the Baron Dario le Blue voting twice against it, though he seemed confused by the premise of this particular vote.

 

The vote passed 16-2




On the Curse of the Adrian Marshalhood


 

The next motion was upon the curse of the Adrian Marshalhood and its successive failures and deaths associated with the position. Firstly Timeo of the Baltas suggested that the name be changed, for the curse was on Marshalship and not, for example upon 'Commandantery'. In fact Constantine called outright for the position to be removed altogether!

The vote was specified as follows: Change the name of the position currently known as Marshal of Adria.

The Votes were:


 

Unanimously in favour.


 

The vote passed 22-0

 

 

The Grand Knight of Adria

 

The next item brought up for discussion was by Baron Dario le Blu, asking for his position of Grand Knight of Adria to be considered to have voting rights within his Grace's Adrian Duma.

 

The vote was stated as follows: The Grand Knight of Adria shall receive one vote at Duma.

 

The votes were:

 

All in favour aside from Bruce Rogers

 

The vote passed 17-3

 

Upon the legal deceasion of Count Ostrobor of Susa

 

The next item brought up for discussion was by the Count's two sons Chekov and Rubert, the two claiming that they had heard no word of their father for two years and wanted to have him declared officially dead. There was no debate and the item was brought straight up to vote.

 

The vote was stated as follows: That Ostrobor Carrion, Count of Susa and Baron of both Giza and Goza be declared dead in the eyes of the law, and his estate be managed by his widow Vesna Carrion until such a time whereby his children were of age to inherit his property.

 

The votes were:

 

Unanimous ayes.

 

The vote passed 22-0

 

 

Walls and Gates

 

The next issue brought up for debate has been a big point of contention throughout his Grace's Dumas. This being the call for walls and a gate to be constructed around the town of Belvitzia. The vote was called by recently appointed Maer Bruce Rogers.

 

The motion was defined as: The construction of walls and a gate around the city of Belvitzia to prevent against raids by banditos.

 

The votes were:

 

In favour

-The Chancellor with three votes

-Bruce Rogers with three votes

-The scrivener with one vote

Against

-The Baron Dario le Blu with three votes

-The Dragon vote with one vote

-Timeo on behalf of Gloschwitz three votes

-Constantine with two votes

-Peter Tyrus with one vote

 

The vote failed 10-7

 

 

Upon the transgressions of Artumee Ault

 

The next vote was called unusually by the Scrivener, who clearly frustrated with subsequent outbursts and interruptions from Artumee Ault, wife of the Baron Dario le Blu, called for her to be defenestrated into a pile of manure as is customary at Duma. This was immediately met with a threat by Dario that any whom voted aye would fall by his own hand. However Bruce Rogers was all in favour as he had be feuding and trading insults with the Ault couple throughout the whole Duma.

 

The motion was defined as such: The defenestration of Artumee Ault into menure for disrespecting the ancient practice of Duma.

 

The votes were:

 

All against, except Bruce Rogers.

 

The vote failed 19-3

 

 

Civil War!

 

Upon the voting outcome of the last motion and the threats of Dario le Blu against the life of Bruce Rogers, the Duc finally spoke his peace and suggested the creation of a legal feud between the two in order for them to air their grievances.

 

The vote was defined as followed: The creation of a Civil War between Maer Bruce Rogers and Baron Dario le Blu.

 

The votes were:

 

15 votes in Favour

 

7 Votes against

 

The vote passed 15-7

 

Magistrate Funding

 

Ritz Gloschwitz returned and suggested extra funding of 100,000 minae for the Adrian Magistrates Office. This fell on mostly deaf ears after the last motion and went straight up for voting.

 

The vote was defined as follows: The Adrian Magistrates office shall receive a gift of 100,000 minae for funding from his Grace's treasury.

 

The voting was as follows:

 

Unanimously in favour.

 

The vote passed 22-0

 

 

End

 

The final motion was called by the Chancellor for his Grace's Duma of 1697 to end. This motion passed a unanimous aye, thus ending the Duma.

Constantine reads the transcript for two separate proposals and rubs his head in confusion.

Maly’thill reminds Constantine that he was granted his vote when he stepped out to get potato chips and pizza dough!

Peter squints at the transcript, following the words with his finger as he reads them aloud.

 

After 20 saints minutes and once he read his name he yells, Wha’, Ah’m no fecki’ Adunanian!”.

 

The grumpy /HEARTLANDER/ would then march off to moan at the Scrivener.

Constantine reminds Maly’thill that he holds four votes before being granted any extras!
