II. Book On Elections/Cities Available
III. City Funds and Governors - Update.

- - - - - - - -


The City Stones lied to us all again, and the nominations did not open until yesterday, December 1st. However, it is time to nominate yourselves for City Governorships!

I have heard of people interested in being Governors and this is exciting! I hope all of you will nominate yourselves. Use a toon that is 'adored' in the City you choose to be a Governor in. Nominate him/herself on the City Stone and have it seconded by another account's toon. The one to second the nomination needs to be a citizen with a loyalty rating of "Respected."

Voting begins 7 days after the nominations start so that puts voting to next week, starting Tuesday, December 7th. To vote, just make sure you have declared your citizenship in the City and have the rating of "Respected," Use the stone to cast a vote for your preferred candidate. Please still vote if there is only one candidate so that the candidate is elected into the office and can manage the City business!

Thank you all for participating! Let's fill those Governorships and get our Cities bustling with buffs, title awards, and trade runs again!

II. Book On Elections/Cities Available

Detailed books on City procedures, running trade missions for gaining City funds, and the election procedures for Governors are locked down at the entrance to Veritas Inn on the North Road of Luna (2nd house from the NW corner). You can also find this book on the front steps of El's Castle, the WTLA Player Center and the WTLA Memorial Rune Library North of Vesper. You can get to the Rune Library easily by stepping on the transport tile at Veritas Inn behind the mailbox.

III. City Funds and Governors - Update.

The Pandemic and lockdown has affected many of our players and the life of the shard. As a result, we are lacking all but one established Governors at the moment for our cities! Here is a list of the player buffs and gold balances of each city today (11/19/20). Email our EM, Topaz, on the UO.com shard forum if you'd like to be designated for any of our open Governorships. Consider doing some trade runs this week to assist those Cities with lower bank balances for player buffs! Please consider putting in your name for a Governorship when the next election comes on November 23rd. I am placing companion green books at the Player Center, Veritas Inn, WTLA Memorial Rune library and my houses that explain the process. You can get them for free off the vendor for the "LA Informer" at Veritas Inn.
