ENORIAN NEWS #3286Date: 4/26/2011 at 13:38From: Daskalos QefinTo : EveryoneSubj: The Bezaliel ExodusAll - As Alterus is no longer a member of the ruling council, or even acitizen of Enorian, I would like to speak a little more openly about thesituation between the Paladins and Enorian.When Alterus approached me initially, he wanted me to help him punish aperson who was out of his grasp, having left his guild, for a crime saidperson did not do. He had no proof, and it was little more than hearsay.It was when I refused to punish said person further, that he tookmatters into his own hands and abused his abilities as a Herald ofEnorian - abilities that are given to him to enforce the laws ofEnorian, not the regulations of the Paladin guild.When I told him no, Alterus then blackmailed the city, threatening tobreak every treaty with the city unless we let him do what he wants todo - his right, as he called it - and indeed breaking one treaty withthe city.He began spinning a tail of the city interfering with his guilds rightsto other Paladins, in an attempt to gain support among his own people.Each Paladin who spoke to me, I answered every question they had.There was a political way to do what Alterus wanted: Write a post,suggest it as a law, and let us vote.He never did that. In fact, once he had been told no, he never spoke tome again. The other Bezaliels also refused to speak, most of themsitting around with the city channel ignored in their minds. One thingI've learned since returning is that the Bezaliels don't like being toldno, and when you tell them no, they throw a fit like a five year old.I am not a babysitter. If you want to help Enorian, I will gladlywelcome your help. If you want to act like a child, then I'm going totreat you like a child.However, with this change comes opportunity, especially for those of youthat are younger. You will notice many new Ministers have been appointedrecently, and they need aides. I'm going to look at aides before I lookat regular citizens when jobs open up.Step up for Enorian, and help your city out. Almost every Ministry coulduse the help. Hone your combat skills, Enorian, so that we can take backthe Pash Valley and the villages outlying.Be ready, Enorian, because much like children, I think the Bezalielswill be back. Only this time, it would not surprise me to see themwielding their weapons for the enemy. I hope I am wrong. Many of themare fine people when they want to be.To the Paladins, Enorian stands ready to negotiate openly with yourguild, as we have throughout this entire affair. I hope to meet whoeveryou elect as your guildmaster soon, so we can put this mess behind us.You are an integral part of the city of Enorian.In service,Daskalos QefinPenned by my hand on the 2nd of Ios, in the year 331 MA.
