As morning creeps down from the sky, Polyhieronia sits placidly, as its first few members arrive. Drolivekk, a Draconic Clan
Representative, welcomes members of both the Human Clans and the Elfin Clan as they arrive. Informing them of the needs and interests of the Council, he begins the Clan discussions which will come to make the Clans a great success in the future. Such discussions and debates on hot topics will assuredly be the basis for great communication, networking, and success in the future for all Clans.
A passerby, [Steel Mal'ak], enters and exclaims, "Oh, I love it!"
Morning on Polyhieronia;
The dew-laden marble stairs glisten in the sunrise's early haze, lit by the indigo sky above. The first day of the RP Council begins, sure to be a grand success in the Elftown Clans.
Drolivekk of the Draconic Representatives approaches the Council Hall, ready to answer any questions about Polyhieronia or her Council Members' needs.
(Polyhieronia is often referred to in the feminine-self aspect, as if she has a persona. This regard for the Council as an equal and welcoming entity is an unstated gesture of honour and respect among Council members.)
Polyhieronia is still under construction in the minds and hearts of Elftowners around the world, and so is an unfinished project currently. She should bear no more than five chambers or subsections; one central chamber, and one chamber for each compass rose direction AT MOST.
"All RP Council members are welcomed to begin work in words, ideas, artwork, or welcoming newcomers, or any other things that would make them happy and useful." Drolivekk says aloud to the first visitor, smiling widely.
Eáránë Narmolanya, walks in softly, gazing at the spectacularness of the great Polyhieronia. -[BinaryPhoenix]
Drolivekk welcomes both newcomers with a hearty smile and raises his arms like he owns the place.
"Built in a single night, they say!" he comments gleefully, nearly beaming in radiant joy. Then again, it could just be the sun on his scales.
"Good to see you both! Why, can you believe that such a place was built for good folk like us?" he chides to the soft-spoken member. -[xido]
"It's really spectacular! One night, you say? Wow!" Eáránë responds. -[BinaryPhoenix]
"Indeed! Why, I lavished in the grove that lay here only two nights past, and it was a simple grove. But now," and with a gesture of his hand, "This!"
The site was indeed utopian in its perfection. The Olympian architecture and Gothic ornamentation melded with a seamless perfection of style, while the natural garden groves lay surrounding the building as if unharmed by its presence. Though Drolivekk was loathe to say it out loud, it almost looked like either an elf or a dragon had built it, but he was sure it might create unrest, and instead simply smiled.
"I have been informed that the RP Council will first convene when each Clan has at least one member, one leader (a Clan Representative to the House they are part of), and with more than four Council members' involvement. Only then will the Council make any recommendations, nominations or Unison House Votes on any major issue. Does that all sound sensible to you, as it does to me?" Drolivekk asked. -[xido]
"Sounds like an outstanding idea!" Eáránë smiled. -[BinaryPhoenix]
"I'll agree with that," commented a new voice as a human entered, or rather landed, golden coat swishing slightly as she moved towards the pair. "I'm Estantia of the Human Clans, I'm part of the 11th Clan too, but my council involvement is more important here." -[Estantia]
The fine-featured elf turned to the newly arrived human, and responded, "Well met, Estantia. I am Eáránë Narmolanya, of the Elfin Clan." -[BinaryPhoenix]
"Simply wonderful," Drolivekk comments heartily, sure that this was a great beginning to such an integral part of what Elftown was sure to become.
"Already I have seen such motivated and intriguing movement from some of the Clans, and surely the best of them is finding its way here. Simply wonderful," he repeated, motioning to the newcomers with prideful reverence.
"The first thing that comes to mind about the Clans meeting is that not every Clan has a member or two and one Representative to vote in the Houses of the RP Council, and the first mission from the Ancients is to have at least five Council members present and attending while the Clans are constructed. This is because we wish to do some work on renovating upon the ideas raised on the Race Suggestions and the-roleplay-initiative by working with The Creature List Creatures and the ECM."
"Also, since many people voted on the <poll:73926>, one has to assume that there would be an interest from these voting members to post such a creature on their house presentation," the brazen dragon speculates.
"Estantia," Drolivekk begins, "What do the humans of your Clan wish to see happen, in order to make relations smooth between all parties in the RP Council, or in your own Clan?"
Looking to Eáránë, he continues, "And what of the Elfin Clan? Surely, both your Clans now have art contests underway, and are seeking new members... But what do you envision for the future?"
Giving a broad gesture, he comments, "The Draconic Clan foresees great things happening in the Clans, and wishes to lead the way with them. Currently, we have even done our fair share to see to it that the Undead Clan, as the Majority House Seat, is cared for until it receives more members. Though we dragons are not fond of the Undead, we care to see them promote coordination and leadership in their primary race, the Vampires of Elftown. They are a rather hearty bunch, and include many more than we'd expected, but we are willing to see them through to success, as any other race. Assuredly, Draconic honour will grow with our willingness to help others. I see that being a Human Clan trait as well, am I right?" -[xido]
"Sounds like a good plan," Eáránë answers. "I do think that between some clans, that do not see eye to eye, will have to come up with a truce between them, so all could live in peace here in Elftown. And the RP Council will then, if truces are instantiated, think of a way to punish thise that do not honour the truce." -[BinaryPhoenix]
"Such laws are indeed necessary," Drolivekk responds, always eager to have a heated discussion on such things. "It was envisioned that each Clan would create its own laws and regulations. There were other ideas too, as they were discussed with the Elves and Humans, that if more fantasy races were offered to Elftowners, that there would be default settings, which would correlate to a member's 'house' (user presentation - not the RP Council Houses) having artworks or images in it. Those without art or media would be designated as Humans until they choose to change or add a picture to their presentations. These options are of course still being considered, but it made sense to me when I thought about them. What do you both think?" -[xido]
"Would this be to test that they are a bit involved in elftown?" Estantia asked curiously, "many creative members of this community wouldn't want to add their own art, and simply use a wiki's banner, a phrase or plaque. Those aren't art, but they do show involvement. It would be easy to get around the system though." -[Estantia]
"You raise good points," remarks Drolivekk. "Like any good problem, I believe that there are sure solutions that could be dealt to issues of copyright infringement in place. Also, if someone wanted to be in the Elfin Clan, they would not necessarily need to add artwork, it would just be the default setting until they actively made a choice on the matter. The default settings would then no longer apply to that member ever again."
