Who Are The Azeem - What Do We Stand For?

We are the Azeem, true and noble knights based on fairness, justice, and chivalry as true knights of the old code. For those who did not know Azeem means Defenders, a fitting name for how we serve the Sultana and her citizens in the Jewel of the Desert that is Ireem.

Our goal dear citizens and hopefuls is to serve the city with fairness and humble devotion of true nobility. We believe that it is not simply age or status or blood that makes one great, but a true noble spirit resides inside those willing to help and serve others.

What the Azeem will do for the city, if allowed to become numerous and plentiful, is keep true order without the need for torture and bloodshed whenever possible.

This does not mean that we are weak, in fact all of the Azeem will be expected to attend regular training exercises to sharpen their skills. All will be expected to fight when necessary, but begin every encounter by respectfully giving law breakers a chance to make amends. In other words peaceful negotiations in the city is our ultimate goal.

Too long has there been corruption in the ranks of the knights. The Azeem seek to be fair despite any friendships or past affiliations we may have with other groups and clans. We vow to look at all sides of every conflict before issuing justice to those who have done wrong. All criminals will be allowed a lawyer to represent them if they so desire, all knights will be trained to give those booked for trial this choice.

I hope that the citizens of Ireem like the idea of just knights and will rally in our favor so we can do our job and serve them. Feel free to contact Azeem Amīrah 'Cathereine Night' or Amir ul-Umara 'Alreania DaSilva' with any further questions about our Knights clan. Thank you.

An update of the latest war betwen Beduoins and Slavers, kindly provided to the Chronicles by Eve Forgraine, a Beduoins Commander.

============================

The first battle of the Slaver Bedu war is over after much blood of both sides was spread across the sands... First round was a raid on the smelly slaver camp. While bedouins fought bravely the slavers were hiding behind their girls, peeing their pink panties, trembling so hard that the tents in which they were hiding nearly broke.
Though their girls protected the crying slavers with the help of even smellier undeads and won the battle by outnumbering our brave bedouin fighters.
Also the bedouins couldnt hit the girls so hard, feeling compassion for them as its known bedouin have a very gentle soul and a heart of gold.
After paying Am's crazy price for the captured ones the slavers raided the bedouin camp.
Thanks to Nino and other knights the bedouin could regain their honor and kick the slavers bums!

So it ended with a draw 1:1, but this isnt the end of the war, the sands are possesion of us, the bedouins and we will prove that in the next battles!

warm breezes, Eve Forgraine


I'm asking for the votes of the Ireemians as one of the undead that is running for the positon. I'm an honest hard working sweet little brat I mean girl..... okay lets just leave it at sweet.

I spend many hours on the sand and believe a job such as this would be good for me and keep my mind and body occupied. I can wield a hacksaw and axe as good as the rest of them... with actual dead carcases of animals of course, would never dream of using anything sharp on anything living... except maybe.....

For fun perhaps having wrestling contests once a month to keep your slaves strong, or maybe yourself wrestling with them... as I don't have mud as it never rains can do it in blood.

I'll do deliveries myself to the caffe's on a daily basis, and of course to the palace to supply the guards and the royaly. (maybe finally I'll get invited to tea.)

Keep an undead employed, busy and off the streets.

vote for Aleyah (Elusive Cristole)

CAFE ELECTION: Princess Page


The Arabesque Cafe is one of the oldest and finest Cafe's in all of Ireem.

As an owner I would endeaver to preserve our rich dance cultural heritage.
With my Bedouin upbringing I am able to teach such dances which have been passed down through the generations. Dances that are meant to entice the senses and awaken the sensual desires of all who are watching.

I will have events that will allow our dancers, musicians and story tellers time to show off their individual talents.

In addition, With my position in the palace not only as Princess but Secretary to Sultana I believe in sharing responsibility, and rewards. So a new co-owner will be chosen for those who have been active in the Arabesque Cafe every month.

Sincerely,

Princess Page Siegel

Clearig his voice

I would like to see the arabesque be a place of enjoyment , parties, and wonderful events costume nights, contests, dancers, drinking.

I'm open to ideas and suggestions.

Together lets' make this a fun place where all can kick back, relax hear some gossip or even create some gossip.

Open to all no matter their race, social status, or even if theyre alive or undead





Cor's charter to the butcher shop for the chronicles.





Salaam people of Ireem, you have long been without present manaagement of the butcher shop for too long, and as only an undead knows of how to properly rend flesh from bone. I present myself, Cor as the most qualified candidate to run the shop.

As a matter of policy you can rest assured there will be no rats in the meat and only fresh flesh will be available for your kebabs. For the Masters you can rest assured that your slaves will only bring you nourishing meat for your conquests with Cor running the shop. For the slaves you will delight in knowing that buying your meats from Cor will keep your Masters strong and virile and able to protect you.

As a public service to the city, the losers of the fights in the arena will be served to the undead. This will have a two-fold benefit to the city, preventing disease from spreading in the city from ra rotting pit of flesh, and also to slake the thrist of the undead to keep the citizens safe from the ravenous beasts.

To ensure a steady supply of meats, I will sponser events at the arena to ensure only the strongest survive to strengthen the bloodlines in the harsh desert.

Thank you for your support and safe paths people of this great city.
~Cor ((Corsair.Wolfhunter))

A scroll was dropped to the Chronicles office at the middle of the night, signed by Palace Guard Cathereine Night. In the absence of the editor, the printing staff decided to print the letter in its entirety:

****************************************
We need a new Knight Leader!

The Knights Leadership has died and crimes are going unpunished!

There is 3 or 4 Knights actually technically "active".. 2 semi active ones.. one is off all the time not doing her duties and another is not really here and sits around doing nothing when he is. Avery does nothing to lead them and is gone for days at a time. So technically there is only 2.

Of those 2...

Avery is gone a lot of the time and when shes here does very little... all shes shown is a lack of ethics by condemning numerous innocent people with evidence before trial that accusations were false and knowing FULL WELL that in Ireem trials you are guilty until proven innocent and it stays on your records.

How many knights are there under her leadership... pretty much NONE and why is that exactly? Do your job Avery.

Nino does what he can but he also has family responsibilities and he was removed from co-leadership by Avery during a fit and as of this letter is not re-instated. Still, I have seen him here a lot more than Avery and at least he is doing something about crimes.

Maybe its time for Avery to step down and let someone who wants to build the Knights to their former glory step in. Or it can be left the way it is.. the criminals stripping the tills all day lately will just love it and our food and other item prices will continue to climb.

Nino and Stella -Two of Ireem's Esteemed Citizens Marry with a Spectacular Ceremony and Celebration





It was the most anticipated event of the season when on November 15th Nino, a distinguished Archon of the Kingdom, and the lovely Stella, Bas Gedikly of the harem and owner of the Blue Lagoon, were married by none other than our own beloved Sultana on the most beautiful day imaginable for such a ceremony.

Before beginning the ceremoney, Sultana took a moment to express her respect and admiration of the couple saying, "You know, Stella, how close to my heart you are. From the first day, I was sure about your success in everything: your kindness, your will, your intelligence, your cheerfulness, your obiedence of the harem rules. Indeed you deserved the title of Bas Gedikly very quickly... and then you met Nino... (smiles)." Turning her gaze toward Nino, Sultana began "Sir Nino, one of the Archon of the Kingdom, always caring for the needy of the poor people and always ready to fight against the criminals to keep the peace in our fine city." Looking toward those in attendance she continued, "He came to ask for my permission and I was glad, because I knew that they would be a good couple!." Again she looked from Stella to Nino saying "Today you have made me so very happy!"

There was barely a dry eye as the lovers spoke their vows and when Sultana spoke of the marriage rings, "This circlet of precious metal is justly regarded as a fitting emblem of the purity and perpetuity of the Marriage State. The ancients were reminded by the circle of eternity, as it is so fashioned as to have neither a beginning nor end; while gold is so incorruptible that it cannot be tarnished by use or time. So may the union, at this time solemnized, be incorruptible in its purity and more lasting than time itself."

The joy in the faces of the citizens of Ireem in attendance was nothing compared to the joy of Nino and Stella as Sultana concluded the ceremony with "Go now and enter into the days of your togetherness."

The Chronicles' Pasha Braveheart caught up with Nino and Stella after the honeymoon and asked them what memories would stand out for them about their lovely wedding.

Stella shared "We were very anxious for that moment and I almost passed out listening to the Sultanas words and when he said his vows to me...oooh that was magical! I felt like in a dream during the ceremony. The reception was all perfect as well I was very pleased to dance for my husband the Candelabra dance. I trainned over and over to make this dance for him in our wedding while living in the Royal Harem. "

Nino offered that ".... I saw the people gathering and as I took Stella in the boat sailing with her to the ceremony while all waiedt for us. I was like "Oh my", then I felt so many feelings gathering all together making my throat narrow for some moments. It was wonderful... everything... and Stella looked soooo beautiful... like an angel."

Stella reflected that "most of Ireem´s best citizens and lovely friends just made the event more special to us. We really appreciate those that could attend and share that moment of great happiness with us. The gifts we got helped us starting our new life together and in the honeymoon travels too. A special thanks goes to our Sultana that could find time to officiate our marriage and all the help I had from my friends and Palace family." Nino added, "There are no words left to thank the people who have helped make this wedding happen; the ones who have supported us all the time and still support us starting with her Highness Sultana who made it possible for us to have that blessed wedding. We thank you one and all."

Looking toward their future together, Stella, with a loving look in her eyes said "I see an exciting life together full of caring and love but especially ...full of passionate moments". She turned, looked down blushing while taking a deep breath and smiling. Nino gazes at the horizon with a big smile on his face and takes a deep sigh while saying "We cannot make the future look as we want it to ... but, the future is built from bits from the past and present which shape the life of everyone. So far I have only seen joy and happiness with Stella and the future can only mirror that if not bringing more joy and happiness to us."

If anyone need a motivation to hunt the Slaver Leader and his woman Mebo, here is an open letter that he sent to the Bedouins:

**************************************

Dear Antar,

I am sorry to hear you are disappointed of our treatment towards some of your tribe members. Nevertheless, you need to subscribe that bedouin girls indeed are very good slave material and it would be a waste of their beauty and charmes just to let them hop around useless in bedu camp.
However, to stop our rude confrontations I suggest the following.
You and your tribe deliver weekly two of your pretty girls which can be enslaved without opposition. You will get half of the benefit.
Looking forward for cooperation in the above subject matter.

Am
Slaver leader

NEWS: Hunt the Slaver Am!

Open slaver hunt!

Our bedouin leader, Antar asked for a meeting of all bedouins to discuss the recent incident with the slaver Am and Mebo, who captured several times bedouin women.

After a letter which Antar send to Am, as a warning, asking him to stop, Am send one back.
Am offerd "peace" if we hand him over bedouin girls on a weekly basis, which rather seemed like a joke, making fun of us.

In the meeting we came to the solution that we have to capture am.
After a longer fight Eve got him with the help of Antar.
As we have an alliance with the magi Kai handed her a potion which Am had to drink. It turned him into a prey, so he wont be able to touch a weapon the next two weeks!

This is a call to all Ladies in Ireem, if you want revenge here is your chance!

If you manage to cap him, dont keep him too long, we want to see him running the whole two weeks.

And its also a call to all magis, do NOT hand him a counter potion!!

Our reporter has received a letter from the Leader of the Bedouins which addressed the recent situation of the co-leader Ehson Miles and his conviction of rape. Here is the letter in full, un-edited (bar the deletion of one name regarding a woman who issued an gagging order.... and don't ask us what she is busy gagging on) :


=============================

To my people the proud Bedouins

In regard to our brother Ehson it was found as i was stating from the first time the causation of rape been issued against him that our Co leader Eshon was set up by the undead to try to divide our unity i stood by him from the first day as i beleaved in his integrity and honor and found out with solid proof that the undead father of Alyssa and teh husband of ##### (ed: name deleted) can't even came to pronounce his name the monster of ireem has raped his daughter and forced his daughter to accuse our brother tried to reason with the knight leader not to prosecute our brother she refused and even after she knew the fact she refused to issue a statement clearing our brother s name there for i will be taking this to highest voice in this land our sultan seeking justice for our brother i will be asking for audience with her majesty the Sultan of ireem i will keep you informed if any one would like to be present please let me know and i will tel you the time and the date when i get confirmation

Your brother Anta Bero King maker

============================================


The incident has so far caused a big storm within the Bedouins community as well as the city of Ireem. Rumour has it that two knights were resigned from duty over this incidents. In addition, many Bedouins feels that there has not been enough done to protect the their community and livelihood. This is proving to be an interesting test to Anta(r)'s leadership skill and his ability to handle this tricky situation.

Bedouins in Turmoil! New Leader is having his work cut out for him.

Fresh from electing a new leader, and a recent declaration of alliance with the Magi, the Bedouins are suffering from a number of setbacks. On that outlook, their new leader Antar (Bero) is a well respected man to many, who had kept a good relation with the City and the Palace, while also being known for his loyalty to the clan. However, despite winning the election of their people, it seems that he had yet won the support of a lot of the powerful elders. And then there is the rising tension between the Undead and the Bedouins adding into the mix. It will be an interesting few months ahead of us.

One of the biggest spots of news that comes out of the Bedouins in the recent days is their co-leader Ehson Miles, the man who Bero defeated in the election, was once again found guilty of rape by the Court of Ireem. The well known rapist who was responsible for causing the war between the Bedouins and the Djinn not so long ago was being seen, by many people including other Bedouins clans, on a serious of mission to capture and attacked a number of undead women. Some of the high profile victims including the Undead co-leader’s daughter and as well as the mother of another. Despite Bero’s best effort to influence the court in order to save his clan brother, the jury found that there were enough evidence to declare Ehson to be guilty.


When our reporters spoke to some of the Bedouins clans, many of them expressed concerns with Ehson's behaviours. Some had even speculated to it all being a deliberate attempt to sour the already tensed relation between the Bedouins and the Undead, and perhaps there was even an hidden agenda of creating problems to the current Bedouins leader to put him under pressure.

Indeed, speaking to a lot of Bedouins, it is very clear that while Bero has the support of many clans and tribe, he was certainly not the choice of the Nadji, who is leaded by Ehson and supported by other powerful Bedouins. This is giving Bero an enormous internal pressure, as he is being judged and criticized for any little mistakes that he might make. Already, they have been very vocal (albeit behind Bero) about his inability to save Ehson from the guilty verdict despite the overwhelming evidence.

How will the new leader deal with all this? What about whether or not this crisis will cause a widespread effect on others? The Chronicles will be keeping a close eye on the Bedouins and bring you the latest development as always.








Salaam people of Ireem,

I bid you good tidings! My name is Maori Aella Falconer. I am new to Ireem but seek to make a name for myself and help insure that fortune always smiles on the people of the sands by owning The Slavers Inn!

Since Aye be a wee Lass, I have helped brew the finest rum, created the best ale, pressed the finest wines, and haggled to find the best that the Bazaars have to offer.

As owner of the Slavers Inn, I wish to create a place where the wind will be filled with laughter, where the eyes can peer at lovely dancing creatures, where the gullet can be filled with drink, where foods will dance on the tastebuds, and every desire can be quenched.

If you seek a place to gain the same, then cast your vote for Aella Falconer and Aye be greeting ye at the reopening of The Slavers Inn

EVENT: Blood In The Sands





The citizens of Ireem were treated to a spectacular Haloween Party on Saturday the 29th of October sponsored by Icy Aura, owner of the Blue Parrot and Staff. All of Ireem were invited as everyone donned their favorite goulish outfits and danced to the music provided by DJ Ehson. All animosities were forgotten as the party heated up in many ways.. including a mock burning at the stake! It was a difficult task to pick the winners in various categories of costumes but the winners were announced to the excitelment of the crowd.

Winners of 500g were:
Scariest - Juliet;
Strangest - Mathias;
Siliest/Funniest - YaYoo.
and because its halloween...
BEST THEME COSTUME - PONZIO -
Congrats to all the winners!!!
An additional gift of coins (1000g) was donated by IceGypsys Ghost courtesy of the Alchemest shop, which allowed the additional Prizes to be awarded!

Honorable mentions at the party were given 50g .. They were-
Liang, Sev, Gemma, Kal, Sidius, Velvet & Jacob, Aurkae, Zoey, Amosa, Mogrin.

At the end of the party, Mathias, who was unrecognizable as a disgusting giant brain twirling dance partners around, shouted "Great party Icy and Pasha!" The Sultana herself was heard saying "congratulations to the Parrot team for the beautiful party!" Icy Aura wants to say "thank you to Ehson for the great tunes which set the mood for Halloween and most especially thank you to everyone for coming and making it a great Halloween Party!." Icy also acknowledges and thanks Icegypsy for her help with the prizes.









As the elections narrow down, we hear from Antar (bero Kingmaker) of the Bedouin, with his words on his journey to become leader.


Unlike many who discovered Ireem in their travels, Bero is a life long resident being born in the deserts of Ireem. He is the descendant of generations of brave and respected Bedouin fighters. In his words, "I am true to the core Bedouin."

He has seen many generations of bedouins develop as great thinkers and healers becoming the foundation of this great land.

Tragically, Bero watched his own father get killed by the slavers many years ago. Already showing his leadership ability, he proudly leads the clan of his father now, the "Ben kouraish" clan. They are known for their pride as true bedouin and for accepting all bedouin brothers and sisters, considering them as one with their clan.

Having fought in many battles with the undead and the slavers, Bero was injured many times, saying "I have spilled my blood on the sands of Ireem all my life." Most recently, Bero played a part in beating back the undead when they launched a sneak attack on the city. He recalled, "I saw them coming, with strength of number, and with hatred in their eyes. Observing them threatening the knights of the city, I gathered a group of citizens to help subdue them. Although a battle ensued, we were able to prevail against them, sustaining many injuries but achieving the ultimate goal as proud inhabitants of this sand."

It has been a lifelong ambition of Bero's to unite the Bedouin clans. He has observed that the Bedouins of the deserts of Ireem have" lost their way in the sand." He has seen a growing lack of respect for the Bedouins that has made them vulnerable to outlaws. He sees it as vital that the Bedouins regain respect and reinforce the values that they have been taught and lived by for generations. If elected leader of the Bedouins, he plans to focus on unity between the bedouin clans.

Speaking directly to the voters he says, "If you want a leader who truly cares about your well being before his own, then vote for me and trust that you will be in good hands."

The staff at the Chronicles are happy to share this occasion passed to us from Dr. Anna.

Be it known to all citizens of Ireem:

Scalia (arian beresford) gave live birth to triplet girls on this day of October 23, 2011 in the following order:

Desi at 12:30pm
Jessie at 12:51pm
Scalia at 1:14pm

In attendance were the father Kingcool, Nightmare Rain performing security, Patience as assitant, and Dr. Anna and Kai Aviatik performing the delivery procedure.

To all good pirates!



Over the past three years I have bled for my kind. I have seen us go from a strong tight knit group that fights together, captures together, and drinks together to the state we're in now. The family days are dead. We are so spread across the board from piss poor leadership and weak noob fighters that it's time to cut out the fat and unite. I say "Fuck the clans!" I'm tired of no one getting the protection and respect that we deserve. The Djinn are the strongest race with one of the smallest turn outs of people in their group. The reason for this is that Indigo leads with an iron fist. They have one clan, the misfits, and everyone is on board. Don't vote for me if you want the same state we're in. I will demand unity in the harshest way...

Yours truly,

Nento Rae.

Master of the House
Bhaiyen Cvercko

Greetings Magi of Ireem, citizens, and other entities named or otherwise,

I am Peter Gunther Hausmann the Sixth, current Administrator of the Tower of Magi. In interest of pursuing my continued position of Magi Leader, I am writing to endorse my candidacy of Magi Administrator, and defend against the various attacks made upon me concerning my time in the tower.

When I was elected to me Magi leader, I established myself as a diplomatic and speaker for the Magi, providing regular reports of Magi events to the Sultana, while acting as her advisor on all things Magi related. For the rest of the Magi, I was a permissive leader, believing that the Magi are not children, they do not need to organize under any common banner, as such a banner does not exist. Having been an academic Magi for quite some time, I can tell you that the dividing lines between individuals even within the same field can make colleagues into sworn enemies. Trying to get any number of such individuals to agree on anything is often akin to occular surgery. So, I chose to let the Magi do their job, so long as they did not cause any problems with each other. When they did, I would step in and deescalate the situation, occasionally even landing myself in a spot of trouble with the knights for my loyalty to my colleagues.

As such, the Magi did the same they had always done- provided services to the city that hosted them, and lived their lives without anyone telling them what to do, think, or be engaged in. I was unaware that anyone was unhappy with this arrangement, which was why when a call for a new election was made, I was shocked to say the least. I had been busy with temporal distortion experiments, employing a Thostra crystal apparatus that uses kautrantic fossnau arrays that establish leading Bossamear waves, and needless to say I was quite busy with that project. I would occasionally vanish for a few days at a time, but left the tower in the capable hands of my assistant, the Djinn Amana, who I had in a gesture of goodwill towards our magic-blooded population, trained in the basic day to day running of the tower. All was well until I reappeared only to find my lab ransacked and my assistant missing. That was the beginning of a long and unpleasant affair that ended up with the Magi establishing a defensive state concerning the undead in the city.

Following that event, I realized I could no longer slip through time as I saw fit, but must take a more active approach in city affairs. I have since been a frequent visitor at the palace, providing counsel to the Sultana, and a more active participant in city affairs, and letting any Magi I met know that my door is always open to any concerns.

Many have attacked me, claiming they did not even know who I was, or that I did nothing for the Magi. I counter with this- I sent out many letters to the Magi who aligned themselves with the Tower's official ley network. If I did not know one's address, or that they were a Magi, how would I go about letting them know of my concerns? As for the belief that I was a poor leader and did nothing to help the Magi, I rebuke that with any number of instances where I came to a Magi's aid, or collaborated with fellow Magi to remedy a problem. Others have claimed I did not take care of new Magi. If I had known Magi fresh to the town needed my assistance, I would have taken measures to see that this happened, but again, I had not heard any such concerns, and assumed that even the Magi new to the town were doing well. And, as I have said earlier, my door has always been open to Magi requiring assistance, and seeing as none approached me with any concerns, I assumed that there were none.

So how can I be blamed for not taking an active part in the Magi's life, when I did not know the ley addresses of all the Magi? How can I be blamed for not helping the Magi, when I was not made aware of any problems? How can I be blamed for not leading the Magi, when the Magi did not tell me they wished to be led? I have always felt that the Magi are a group of mature, intelligent people who do not need guidance or strong leadership. We are adults with our own agendas that can handle problems on our own, and if we need help, know how to ask for it. That is why I have been proud to call myself a Magi, as we are a group immune to hysteria, instead deferring to rationality and maturity.

If this is how you perceive yourself as a Magi, then vote me in for a second term. Vote for being allowed to follow your own agenda, and having a Magi Leader that does not interfere with your studies. Vote for a Magi who is not only a seasoned diplomat, but an active researcher in magical affairs. Vote for a Magi who believes you are an intelligent, responsible adult, and will treat you that way. Vote for a Magi who does not think you need to be led like a small child, but left to what is really important- Your own pursuit of Magic, and your freedom to do it without hindrance from any ruling group or party. That is what I have always felt is important, treating the Magi as a group of free thinking adults. So please, vote for me in the upcoming election.

Thank you,

Chronicles: So Zami. Maybe you would like to introduce yourself to those people who don't know you so well, since you have been away for a while.

Zamalie Core: Ok My name is Zamalie and I am a gypsy from a distance land across the sea. I like to play my instrument and do research in old scrolls to seek what has been lost during time. I am single but that is because that works best for me .

Thank you. So what do you consider as your biggest strength?

Honor. And i dont give up easilly.

Maybe you can tell us a bit about why you decide to stand for the Magi Leadership?

Yes i can tell that. Way back the tower worked for the sultan/sultana of Ireem and magi was highly respected. The magis was loyal and did many good deeds and in return we got the tower as our home and study. Today things are not right in the tower, some fractions does not support our dear sultana and has been heard saying they want another leader. None of those can of course become leader of the tower, the tower has to be loyal to the sultana and more than that. So, my goal is to restore the order in the tower.

That's very good. What is your vision for the magi as a group, if you become the leader?

We will have to go back three steps and find the path that leads right, then we will regain our honor and once again the sultana will seek answers from us.

What would be your priority for the Magi if you are to be elect as the next leader?

To improve as person and ones skills, to study hard and work even harder to serve the sultana.

Let's talk a bit deeper about this subject. You mention about serving the Sultana, so I am guessing that you will lead the Magi to the side of the City. What would you do to the Magi who might disagree with you about serving the Sultana?

Then they are of course free to leave the tower and the land and find a job elsewhere, the reason we got the tower was that we should be there and ready to serve.

I have asked around a little after i returned from my study trip, and i have not found many that are unhappy with the sultana but still some claims that people are unhappy, but its only a search for power by a handful who are walking the wrong path.

If we can't manage to get things straight perhaps our dear sultana finds another use for the tower? It's her right!

Does that mean you will expell those magi who openly working with the enemies or vocally against the ruling of our Sultana?

If they are caught working against the sultana with her enemies or vocally abuses her person or doing, i will have them removed if that is possible, if not we have other wasys to deal with rough magis.

That's very good to hear. How would you deal with the enemies of the Magi, and to certain extent, the enemies of the City? We know the Tower had been attacked by the Undead quite recently, for example.

We have possible allies out there and i will tie the band that was once broken also there are so many magis around now so it should be possible to defend f we organize things a little tighter.

What do you think your biggest challenge will be if you become the leader? And how would you deal with those?

The biggest challenge will be to get everyone pull in same direction, to support each other and share their knowledge. I will go as far as tighten the group together as a family and make them work together on that level. You know it's always easier to help your sister or brother than a stranger.

That's great. As a final thought, would you like to sum up your campaign with one last message?

I bring order to chaos!

The Chronicles managed to catch up with Shaka the Wild, who is running for the leadership of the Slavers. In this interview he shared with us some of his vision as well as some candid thought in and around the issue of the Slavers leadership

-----------------------------

Chronicles: Even though you are one of the most famous, and perhaps infamous character in the city, sometimes it's hard to establish who is the real you from all these gossips and rumour. Maybe you would like to give us a few lines to describe yourself?

Shaka Brandris: Well ...I am sure most of people in Ireem have hear my name even once ,also every pirate here know who I am . I have been maybe one of the most old pirate here in Ireem .I have my high and low moments ...but even that i have always find my way through the sea fog and raise up myself looking in the future. I was being a second in command once ... before many years ,But trust me i never have lose that fire in me and I have prove that many times ,I have prove that Shaka have a honour even cruel man


Well I guess one of the question people would want to know is that not so long ago you were working with the palace and help us to defend against the Undead. What took you back to the slavers?

Hmm I think that working in the palace was challenge for me also i was there to prove that one of the most hated person in Ireem have more honour than most of that people who blame he .I have give my word to Lonesome and Shaka the Wild never broke his word I think I have prove this ...nut there also was a small deal. Let`s do not forget that this is in my blood ... and just this what is in my blood make me turn back as a pirate ... my soul need of freedom .. my temper make me do things that are not so "royal" I am man who have some hard moments to behave so was better for me and the Palace if I move back to my usual business


Understandable. I think it's easier to buy you drink when you are a pirate than a palace guard anyway. If you do become the leader of the slavers, what would be your priority to the pirate?

To unite them ...to lead them standing on the front line ..I will never hide behind my pirates like some others do ... All knows that I am never scared ..never scared even to fall in battle ..and that`s the reason why most of people have fear or respect of me .I would show the way to all new slavers ... I would give them all trips and experience that i have got in years..about all old slavers ...I think most of them know my skills and also I hopes most of them already stand behind me. I would give to all slavers this what belong to us, the glory.


Obviously, with so many different groups who are living in and around the desert, there will bound to be conflicts. We all know your fierce reputation, but what of you as a leader? Will you be leading your slavers into the war against the Undead, for example, should the group crosses path?

I am warrior ..but not a fool ..I will do not lead my slavers in something that we are not on way to win ... and talking about something so poor like this un-dead pussy creatures ... be sure that no one can`t step on my way ...even I need to deal alone with that.


I absolutely agree with your statement there, certainly none of them are brave enough to step out of their hole and come up to this level and speak to us. On a slightly different note, what would you think the most difficult challenge of leader the slavers, and what would you do to deal with those challenge

I think the most hard job for me would be to unite all slavers ... to make them look in one direction and do not mess up in each other business ...or if there is something with what they need to deal to make it in some discreet way .. I wish to make us look like strong unite and make all bow their head when slavers walk on streets .. i would lose to see that and how I would deal with that ? If i need to be honest I don`t know ..only the time will show ...I know that many would laughs at me because i don`t give some promises ...but if those people even know Shaka a little bit they must agree that Shaka never give empty promises ... only weak and poor people love to shows that they always know how to make things in best way


What would you describe your leadership style? Would you be ruling with an iron fist or would you try a different kind approach?

I have always say that there is nothing more i important that loyalty and respect ... I will rule with respect ..but also there would be no mercy for those who try to ruin this what i build


What about to outsider? Can you see yourself having a drink with the leader of the Bedouin or the Undead, for example?

Probably not . At least not before they all come and bow and paid their respect to us ... in other case we would force them claim that ..in the past i have seen many leaders that was enough stupid to treat us bad ..and they have pay i high price for that ... so I am sure if those are clever enough they would always look back in a history and learn from there


It's good to have you here today, Shaka. Would you like to sum up your campaign with one statement?

No true pirate will allow anything or anyone to come between what is theirs. Elect me as your leader and fight by my side. Reclaim what is rightfully ours.


Candidate statement from Am Demina

-----------------------------------------------

SLAVERS LEADER ? AM IS THE MAN TO VOTE FOR !

Well, we may think different about things happening in Ireem, but one thing all have in common: we love our city! Ireem is a beautiful place to live in.
And where did Ireem earn its prosperity from ? well, I can tell you: Slavery !
Slavery is the basic business of Ireem. The pillar Ireem stands on. Slavery brought traders to Ireem, made royalties come to our city and attracted both the good and the evil to wander around here. Slavery made our city to its high standards.
And who did supply this all? Right, we did, the honest and hard working slavers.

As a leader I will make sure everyone understands this matter. I will propose laws to encourage slavery; I will organize our respected profession to make slavers a major force in our beloved city.

Slavers rule Ireem ! Vote for Am Demina !


Candidate statement from Ehson
---------------------------------------------

Ehson Miles moved to Ireem a little more than 4 years ago, he became a Bedouin and remained that ever since, many came, many offered, many bribed to change his loyalty to another clan. The young bedu never left his ground never gave up never surrendered.

Slowly but surely he starting protecting his family and friends, he defended his tribe, he protected the weak. There were times he had to prove that in arena by winning championships.

He became a warlord, by the blessing from his elders, April showered her guidance and encouragement, his tribe members supported him at times of need.

The Bedouin Shall rise again!!, The new leadership will provide freedom, independence and the right to express themselves. No Leader has the right to dictate, nor shall it be. A leader needs to earn respect not force it.

Directions, codes and are only restricting the proud members to express themselves, all proud bedus are well aware of what they can and probably would not do. The leadership should provide guidance and assistance to new members.

There is one code only and that will be enforced only, ALL are one. One for all and all for one. And that’s it. “We will never surrender, Never give up”


KAI AVIATIK - EMPATH AND CANDIDATE FOR LEAD MAGI

The lovely Magi, Kai Aviatik, is a candidate to be the lead Magi of Ireem. The Conronicles sat down with Kai to find out more about this already beloved citizen of Ireem.

Kai grew up in another land far from Ireem and tells a fascinating story of her journey to Ireem. In her words, " I grew up in another land far from Ireem. The Shaman of my people sent me to seek out the "Trail of the Ancestors" in order that I could further hone my skills as an Empath. The Shamen recognized that if I experienced new magic and new spirits in others lands, I soon could become very powerful in my skills. I travelled alone in the open and wild deserts for the greatest part of my life, before happening upon Ireem."

For those who are uninformed, as this reporter was, an Empath represents a small breed of Magi who are able to actually see into the soul of another being. Kai explains, "What you feel... an Empath can feel! Be it mental pain, heart pain or pain of the physical body. The Empath has the unique ability to actually take on the emotions and the spirit of another. We will cry when you cry. We will be ill when you are ill. We will bleed when you bleed. This is where an Empath has the unique ability to heal as an Empath will connect to your soul and inherit your pain, your illness or your injury, removing it from your body and taking to their own. This does not come without a price though ... as taking on the injury or illness of another weakens an Empath desperately."

Speaking in general about the life of a Magi, Kai reflects, "Ah yes. the life of a magi is many faceted. The true magi has a very free spirit and will always seek out paths that they know suit them best. This helps ensure each magi is able to focus on their own specific disciplines."

In terms of her experiences here in Ireem, Kai shares a couple that stand out in her mind, " I have been fortunate to have experienced some of the finest things of Ireem! Things such as seeing Anna come back to us when she nearly lost her life, as well as festive events such as the time myself and my dance sisters were personally asked to dance for the Royal Wedding! That was a glorious event to be sure!"

Kai talked of her skills as an Empath in Ireem when she said, "Through these skills I practice the seeing and healing of souls and spirits and on occassion, depending on the severity of the illness or injury, have healed their bodies as well."

It is Kai, who Dr. Anna seems to call on to deliver the babies of Ireem. Of this Kai says, "I have been fortunate to have been the attendant of a number of births here already. In my homeland, the women learn this very early. This is because most often our women will go off by themselves to have the babies, where they are silent and never cry out in pain. So each girl of our people learn this very early. "

When speaking of her desire to be the lead Magi of Ireem, a broad smile comes across her pleasing face, "Ahh.. well that's quite simple... because I understand the importance of each and every magi. I understand and believe in their freedom to seek the path each one chooses, that best suits them. Added to that, I know how important it is to help new magi discover the skills they have hidden deep inside themselves as well as helping them to learn about all the exciting things Ireem has to offer them! We already prove these caring values within our Illuminati clan. Each Illuminati is there to assist and care for each other, and it is very successful! We only look to expand this wonderful opportunity to all magi of Ireem so that they too can live the fullest life possible here in our lovely city!"

To be sure, Kai has already proven her leadership ability by creating and leading the Illuminati Clan, whose purpose it is to assist and/or mentor the Magi community of Ireem.

In closing Kai wants the citizens of Ireem to know, "Though citizens may not always "see" a magi about, we are always close by. So, if you should be so fortunate as to see a magi, do not be afraid to say Salaam!"
