Should Mons Electi be the permanent host for the septennial Tribunal?
- Yes; but we're gonna get ours.
- I don't care.
Day two of the Tribunal is opened with a little more pomp and circumstance. Celeres stands on the stage facing the seats in the coliseum and addresses the assembled magi. "My good magi, I ask your humble forgiveness for yesterday's...debacle. I was persuaded by Proctor and Valerian to push this case forward. Had I known that it was a case without honor, and didn't meet the merits of testing an actual legal question, I would never have assented to that. I stand before you as Praeco, but I have not been ratified by you. If there is another magus of a certain age that contests my position as Praeco, let them come forward." Celeres stands for a few moments, and no one comes forward.
"Very well. I am humbled to be your Praeco. It would appear that we have a new Presiding Quaesitor for the Tribunal, but he needs assistance. I would ask for volunteers for those skilled in the Code of Hermes to lend him your support during this transition." He turns to Cavillor and applauds his ascension to his post. Cavillor seems a bit nonplussed by the attention.
"Finally, we are in need of a Chief Hoplite. Valerian's actions while not against the Code were less than honorable for a knight. We require men of honor. Let those with honor come forward and be judged by their peers."
