Iulia approaches Cygna on the way into the Tribunal amphitheater: "Remember, we will require all your covenant's votes today if we are to drop vis rights claims."
Guglielmo stands and calls Tribunal to order, and calls out, "The Tribunal recognizes Fredegisa scholae Guernicus."
A bookish brunette stands and takes the dais. "Thank you, William. Amici, Englishman, sodales-- lend me your ears. I come to revitalize Stonehenge, not to overturn it. As things stand, the political power of this Tribunal is all centrally located. In order to promote a harmonious Tribunal, where we may come together as equals, I have a number of proposals to place before you today.
"Item One: Location of Tribunal. I pose that, rather than have a single location where Tribunal shall be annually, the location shall rotate every seven years on a bid system. Any location which wishes to host the Tribunal will make their proposals at the preceding Tribunal; the bid should outline the facilities and resources the bidding covenant would invest into the Tribunal activities. Any number of covenants may bid in a single year, and the one receiving the greatest number of total votes shall be the location of the next Tribunal."
The amphitheater is awash in whispers, but Fredegisa continues unfazed.
"Item Two: Tribunal Praeco. By law the praeco is the eldest magus whose legal residence is on record at that Tribunal. As such, the esteemed Talion of Flambeau is recognized for the great service he has done this Tribunal by acting as Praeco, however, Scintilla Flambonis is directly committing a Low Crime by refusing the responsibility. While I do not propose any criminal prosecution for this matter, I do insist that she fulfill the duties required her, such that--" She is interrupted by the sound of someone clearing her voice, loudly.
Up in the amphitheatre, previously unnoticed, stands a tiny old woman with crinkled sun-brown skin and snow white hair. "Actually, you're all out of order. That's my seat you're in there, sonny, and if you get out of it, it better be to make room for me."
This time the amphitheater erupts in talk-- those with Awareness checks of 9 or better can pick out of the noise that many believe the tiny old woman to be Immanola, the Prima of Ex Miscellanea, previously believed to be in Final Twilight. She can be recognized directly (from old descriptions) as Immanola on an Order of Hermes + Int roll of 15.
