Aqil
Adrahal speaks simply, as is his way in concerns involving such savage acts against what his ideals of Maalik society uphold.

"As is right in dealing with such barbarians, I vote we make slaves of them all. Those who do not enter the glorious mind of Maalik may surely work under its yolk at the very least. As is such with slaves, they may earn their betterment over time, and perhaps maybe their sons and daughter will be the proper heads that those savages are unable to form."

Safiyyah
Lady Cassandra nods at Adrahal's suggestion,

"Hopefully so. Preferably if we could integrate the ha'dri females into society, the males and the offspring to come will follow. As for the Aranek, Safiyyah has a decent population of Ssazar, being very magically adept, and the Khesun, being the more... intelligent of the Aranek sup-specie. Perhaps we should make contact with the Impo'si kingdom. Perhaps they would be willing to sign with us, then we could truly have a unified Sarkun."

Darkness begins to reign dominant in the sky when the hours pass. A bell rings in the distance over the city, sending out a message to the towns people that it is past six o'clock. " Diplomats under Muhsin's authority have been sent to the council of the Ha'dri and the Arenak. We await their answer next meeting." With that, the standing tiefling gives a half assed bow to the other councilors. The first meeting of the council has ended..

After the first council meeting nearly a week ago, the doors open up and the invitations sent out once again with the arrival of Marcus Olm back in the nation. The streets seem buzying with life as more and more races that have been outcasted by others fill the streets of all towns, save Atiya unless they carry vampirism and wish to be among their fellows without fear of prosecution. Tieflings, drow, and vampires of many different races are the bulk of the new arrivals.

Ha'dri and Aranek alike also fill the streets but are not subjugated to the harsh words or actions by the Maalikians by word of Marcus Olm in Muhsin. They are asked to immediately travel to the council chambers with escorts of demons and the army of Muhsin to ensure there are no hostilities.

Marcus stands at the entrance to welcome the guests, who have been requested to the capital before the councilors themselves."Greetings, natives to Sarkun. I am the new leader of Maalik and as such, welcome you to my city in an attempt to unite all of Sarkun to a single banner. As I am aware, the Aranek of the Impo'si Empire have already accepted this offer and for that I am greatful. We will try to stay within the best wishes of your people and land." Marcus pauses to turn to the Ha'dri council members who are large in number. "A deal will be struck today to forge an alliance between our people to better serve Sarkun and unite it as said before. While there are many of you, you will be required to choose a speaker for your people for later meetings."

After nearly a month of no communication between the council or its members has brought a certain level of disorderly conduct in the official affairs of Maalik and Sarkun. Word finally breaks out from Muhsin and its ruler Marcus Olm to the other leaders in Sarkun to join the council halls as soon as they are able on urgent business to Muhsin.

Some more higher ranking people in the Sarkun society may have heard exploits of a raid Marcus Olm conducted against the city of Rashid and its former ruler, Perish. Word is that Perish fled the city after being defeated in a counter attack led by Marcus after a failed usurping chance against Marcus and the city of Muhsin.

The Impo'si Empire


The dignitaries of the New Impo'si Empire have already arrived in the Council Chambers - one of the Arunjai, Chalcatu, the nephew of the reigning High Shaman and infamous warlord, well-known for his vehement and moderately effective campaign against the conquering forces of Maalik, in particular the Shah. His horde of warriors, composed largely of indigenous Aranek from the lands of Saffiyah, Rashid, and Aqil, often sweeps across the southern and south-eastern jungles, raiding Maalik plantations, freeing Aranek slaves, and contesting the Mage-Kings of Maalik where they attempt to tred on Aranek sovereignty in these regions. While the official bounds of the New Impo'si Empire cover the northern swath of jungle, many Aranek have lived in the lands claimed by Maalik for thousands of years ; many native Aranek consider all of Sarkun to be their home. Chalcatu is thus a very popular leader, and very influential despite acting beyond their officially mandated lands. It is likely that the High Shaman sent Chalcatu to Olm's meeting because he knew that Chalcatu's extremely orthodox and pro-Aranek stylings would act as a buffer to any deception or sweet-sounding talk Maalik can produce.

However, today the attitude among the Aranek is much different. Marcus may have received word - of celebrations, of mass sacrifices - to his name! In the wake of his sack of Rashid and the depose of the Shah, popular opinion among the Aranek has vastly swayed in Marcus's favor.

With Chalcatu are two Ssazar, members of the Aranek Shaman-Mage caste, fitted in flowing robes of silk collected from the giant spiders indigenous to Sarkun.



Fadilla


From the courtyard of the Palace of Mushin comes a trio of shuddering cracks as Naji Qusay XII, the Master Artifacer of Fadilla, translocates into Mushin along with two of his Storm-Guard, foreign slaves bought at a very young age, trained and bred from the age of six to be loyal and extremely adept Techno-Mages. Outfitted with the finest of enchanted weapons and armor, they wear light armor enchanted to resist both magic and normal arms by way of magical shield; enchanted helms which allow them to intimately scry any near location; and their main weapon - Arcane Rifles. Qusay lowers his hand, encapsulated by a shuddering mithril-and-platinum gauntlet. After a moment, the shuddering ceases, and Qusay pulls free a cordonium gem, one of many, from a circlet at the base of the gauntlet. Depositing the gem in a pouch on his person, he replaces it with a fresh gem, glowing with power. After these preparations are done, he begins to make his way into the Council Chambers.

Aqil
Under the heavy symbol of Aqil, poised at the delegatory station is one man known as Adrahal of Tisuuk. This man, usually calm, expresses a displeased anger on his face, and those most near to his person are further from him than usual. The eyes of Adrahal are weighty, and seem as if they could tear a mercenary down with ease. He occasionally glances to the Aranek champion, his gaze only strengthening upon his person, before shifting about the room. Adrahal, unlike his common nature, carrys a weapon into this courtroom. At his side is a heavy scepter, lined at the head with magical metal and a large cardonium gem, while the shaft secretly serves as a barrel for a mighty firearm.

Adrahal waits impatiently for the others to arrive, one hand holding up his head, and the other tapping a finger against the haft of his great scepter.

The Impo'si Empire


There is a low, deep rumbling as the Aranek dignitaries speak among themselves. After a few words pass in their own language, Chalcatu casts a glance Adrahal's way. He turns away, but an audible, grumbling chuckle can be heard.

Fadilla

The Techno-mages of Fadilla enter the hall. A brief moment of hesitation passes among the three as they notice the Aranek, but nevertheless Qusay moves to his chair, while his Storm-Guards take of position either side of him. He gives a curt nod to Adrahal, before clasping his hands before his mouth, waiting for the other's arrival.

Aqil
There is little play or question in Adrahal's voice, as he situates himself up, and speaks. He does so fluently, with agitation bleeding from within him into his tone.

"IWhat is this great and terrible, insulting presence in front of me? Aranek, in Maalikite council!? What foulness is this, look, they touch our stands and hold their heads high. Someone, any good citizen, give them the yolks and bar them from raising their heads, that they might look at our glorious cities! This is an /insult/ to all of Maalik, and to what end? What possible reason could we have to invite /lessers/ into this chamber!? I came here to respond to confirmed reports that my people, actual people, were drawn out of their homes in droves, taken to some black fate. I half suspect it was the lizardling across the parapet that has done this, to feed some craven hatchling human flesh and lies of a greater life in ignorance instead of in our pens."

Marcus stands after remaining relatively quiet when as the other council members walk in. He has no guards with him, but the shadows move around him and follow him when he walks with his stern and dominant manner that demands respect. The tiefling wears his usual ebonbone armor, which is still coated in a seemingly fresh spray of blood likely from the fight a few nights before. Before saying anything publicly, he walks over to the Arenak on the outside of the table. He speaks a few soft spoken words to them, if they accept his presence near them.

After briefly speaking to the Arenak, the tiefling now speaks with his booming and overwhelming voice that is supported by the demon inside of him. "Adrahal, do you honestly believe yourself superior to the Arenak? Choose one of your champions to fight just one of them and we will see who will be victorious. If not, close your mouth of your false claims to elitism in this council designed to house and unify all of Sarkun."

Qusay speaks from his chair - "I find I must concur, good Chairman of Tisuuk. Whatever we have to speak of in this hall is not for the ears of savages. Their entry into this hall is intolerable, Olm. This before you have even explained what has happened to Rashid.

The Ha'dri representatives

The delegation of Ha'dri enter the council chambers just in time to hear Adrahal's voice. The four brightly robed and gold-clad ha'dri chitter and hiss amongst themselves as they take their places. The group remains silent before a much simpler clad translator moves forward, clearing his throat as one of the insectoid creatures hisses into his ear.

"You forget yourself, Lord Adrahal. My people and those of the...Esteemed Chalcatu were here long before your apes set foot in our lands and we shall be here long after your 'glorious' cities have been reclaimed by the wilds. In any case the attack on Rashid has nothing to do with the Aranek, as much as your blind prejudice would like you to believe. We saw the colours, the flares and then the darkness spread over the city you call Rashid. Marcus Olm, the man who claims unity and co-operation has deceived you. Over Rashid we have seen the blackness that has not been seen for many thousands of years. The Slumbering One, Nazzem, as your race knows him and ally to the Dread Lord has returned at the call of Olm. We for one demand an explanation as to why Olm has scarified this entire city to the Sleeping God and if he plans to do so again."

The Ha'dri straightens up, moving away from the translator and back to the other three members of the delegation, mandibles preening together as he exchanges a few more chirps and growls with his companions.

Marcus turns to the Ha'dri. "It is true Nazzem has forced the people there under his will, but this is no doing by me. He came at his own accord to stop the Shah after he revealed his lich form. This attack was only a counter attack after the Shah tried to usurp Muhsin and kill me, in which he failed. Nazzem has told me himself he will release the town once he speaks with Bane and not show himself in Maalik again. The Arenak and the Ha'dri are blameless in this attack, as they were not part of it."

Aqil
It is a short time after being replied to that Adrahal would compose a reply. His stature would remain composed, respectful, and without sign of assault, while his words flare with a deeper malignance that matches his eyes..

"Aqil boasts no champions, only the faithful whom will work for a more united Maalik way. The closest to a champion would be myself, and while I would be willing to make meeting with these... beings in a contest of anything involving a redeeming quality, I do not believe myself as a person to be wholy better than them. I believe in humanity, the strength of man and will, the Maalik way as it has been since we carved these lands. This is what I believe, and why I believe their present is an /affront/ to this council. Lord Olm, as Lord of the Unified Maalik, you must recognize this creed as just. Similarly, why would they want to speak and make amens now with me, when they have done well enough taking and claiming my people for butchery or whatever terrible fates await in those black marshes."

After addressing the council about Nazzem, Marcus looks at the master of Aqil. "This is a constant folly with your kingdom of man. You enslave and kill them as if they were bugs below your foot, yet when they attack you - you cry to whomever holds your hand and speak of war. It is sickening. Either stand for yourself and fight, create peace, or die - the three options you have to face as they have faced for years of your occupation on their land."

Aqil
Adrahal of Tisuuk works more leniently with his eyes, similarly so with his words, seeming to calm as those words are said, but not begrudgingly so much as if a weight has been lifted free from his shoulders.

"Then it shall be death, of one or another; however, I will assign myself such later, for this is a place of speaking and minds. I retract my earlier words, as even .../they/... are capable of such. They may be here to speak, and so I may hear them; but they will know that I hold true to the Maalik way, and that Adrahal of Tisuuk is not a cruel man, but one whom follows the honor held in his heart."

The chairman of Aqil corrects himself in his chair, giving a few nods, situating himself respectfully in his chair. He looks round towards his fellow members of the council, even those of the Aranek and the Ha'dri. To each he give his calm, cool, confident smile. The Ha'dri and the Aranek experience this a short time longer.

"This will not be a cause of further interaction. We may speak now of pertinent matters, if it so pleases the others.."

The Ha'dri representatives.


The assembled ha'dri chitter and chirp as they hear Aqil speak. Even to one completely alien to their race it's painfully obvious that they're laughing. After a moment the four compose themselves and the individual that appears to be the leader leans forward, hissing to the translator who relays the representative's words to the council.

"The Ha'dri enjoy a fight, this much is no secret but matters of honor and insult are also often decided by the other important displays; be it dance, art or song. That said, we believe that these forms of art are beyond you at any rate."

Fadilla

Qusay looks among the people of the Council Hall, tensions still rife in the air. He clears his throat, as to draw attention to himself before speaking.

"We have come here to speak; to have a meeting of words; let us then speak. As the new and rightful master of Mushin, Olm, the... natives shall remain. It is only my concern that what is spoken of here is to be said between only we lords of Maalik alone, united, yet equal. Whatever may happen in the future, they are not yet one with us.."

Qusay tips his head in deference to Marcus. "Yet you have the right of it."


"You have called us here to address the most disturbing news of the fall of Rashid; I must profess a certain amount of distress at this news. Though the Shah was not a friend, he was an old and powerful mystic, and a follower of our ways. It disturbs me more that Nazzem, sleeping enemy and devourer of mystics, has returned to Aeria. But I stay my judgement; let us hear your words, Olm, master of Mushin."

Aqil
Adrahal of Tisuuk Nods towards the Ha'dri representative. Speaking quickly after he speaks,a nd then being silent as to not further hamper matters.

"You would in fact be very right, speaker. For Aqil is a land of farmers, of hard work and hard labor. Little other than the fight of life and a pride of being is instilled in my people. The skills of praise learned in your arts are lacking in the lands I helm. This is not unfortunate, but necessary, to the function of the people as a whole."

"Let this be said, and said only once more. This is a council of Sarkun, not just of Maalik. The Ha'dri and the Arenak have more right to be here than myself or you, but we are all equals in this room. Maalik cannot function without Sarkun as Sarkun has functioned without Maalik. It is time to unite our lands for the good of mortals not just humanity." Marcus addresses the members inside the council chambers. "All of the world is watching us now, and they only laugh when they see us fighting among our self for petty disagreements. It is time to evolve Sarkun into what it rightly can be."

"A super power among these other imperialistic scum we call neighbors. A shining light for mages, inventors, races who have all been outcasted because of what they desire to do or what they are. This is the true reason Maalik was formed when it fled Sida. " Marcus looks to every one of the council members, his face turning from a stern and hard appearance to a strong and passionate one. "We only push ourselves back more and more every time we fight with each other when we could be fighting to defend those who are exactly like us. Demon summoners, necromancers, inventors, for everyone that couldn't flee Sida - for everyone that couldn't flee Sanctimonia, Pycheko, Occitan."

Fadilla

Qusay leans back in his seat, his face inquisitive, working, his hands steepled in front of his face. "You speak intriguing words, Olm. It is true, though it is often our way to allow each to act as our own - to let might, intellect, and cunning make right - that in times of peace, with collaboration among our peoples, that we have achieved our greatest works. I supported a united Maalik, and a governing body such as this, for this very reason. For us to be a light, to cast off ignorance and false morality from the bodies of the worthy around the world - this is a tantalizing concept. But you must understand if I tailor my enthusiasm with my worries.

The return of Nazzem is troubling. That as he returns he seemingly aids your goal is more so. The Shah was not a friend; and by our way, if he has fallen, he has done so by a lack of his own prowess. Yet.

Nazzem is an enemy, a veritable demon to all mystics and scholars everywhere. He covets our knowledge in the way only the divine do, and schemes to wrench it from us, from our very minds. Even Velecar, formidable Lord of the Soul Prison, stands higher in thought than he, for at least his cold mind has grown by observation. Nazzem furthers himself in the pitiful manner of the divine. And now he has returned - laid waste to the minds of our people? If you speak the truth, Marcus, Master of Mushin, then let the first goal we undertake as a united Maalik to ensure the freedom of our people."

"It is true, Nazzem holds our people hostage against us but he will release them and remove himself from Sarkun completely once he speaks to Bane - or so he has told me. The Shah is still alive, however. He fled the field with some of his fiends and Nazzem wants to destroy him as well."
