Open Cascade Bay Governor Steps Down

    During the events of unrest within Cascade Bay, Arthur Pendragon was attacked in his home. He was severely injured and was forced to step down from his position as Governor of Cascade Bay to recuperate, effective from March 16th onward. At this point it is unknown if he’ll try and take back his former position.

    I know this is late, but I figured I should get something up! I’m not sure how this’ll go OC? I don’t think I have enough time during the school year to have Arthur be governor and not fall behind (like I have with current plots) and I’d rather him take less integral roles in future Cascade Bay plots because I can’t fully commit to big plots. So! I’m not sure if there should be some sort of election or if we should just say a NPC ran the town until the new season (as it’s coming up very soon) or what.

    Let me know!

    Aww, I'm sad to see him leave the position but I totally get it. I do believe that the staff has changed it so that elections are no longer required though. It's now more of "whoever signs up for it and has the qualifications can do it" thing now. Basically I think it will be an NPC until someone takes it over. I'm sure someone will though. Then Arthur can pass them the key to the town or something. lol

    Aw no D: poor Arthur!

    I do know Lexa is vyying for that position because she has lead before and she's trained all her life for it. But I'd rather not be all SHE CLAIMS IT just in case some other character is also interested. And I'm still dealing with medication side effects woo x_x so my activity isn't exactly high atm/

    I can not help but feel excited about the entire plot! Frankly, I was away for a short while but work is settling on a normal rhythm, so I have free time! Yayyy! Aside from my issues, Loki would OBVIOUSLY want the position. After, all he is the one behind everything. Of course no one can prove it or know about it but still he was the one pulling the strings. However, he would only try to take the postion if no one else tried because he would not want to give a hint for his dark motives.

    So it sounds like our options are @Lexa and @Loki Laufeyson for next season!

    I do want to mention that if Loki wants nobody to know about his motives, then Merlin might be a problem. Loki was one of Ravenna's councilmen and while Merlin was on the run he kind of got stuck in a "partnership" with Loki due to some anti-Ravenna mutual interests. So he knows all about who Loki is. I don't if that's something you would want to touch on or if it could be used as a reason he doesn't take the position if you go that route, but I just wanted to throw it out there because Merlin would be vocal about it!

    The MSF are planning on creating a Military Base nearby Cascade Bay. Snake and the rest of the soldiers will be watching the proceedings with interest. They're also available to intervene on behalf of whomever needs them to via espionage.

    I would love to throw Jessamine on this, though she's a newcomer and just landed in Cascade Bay. Trouble stalks this Ex-Empress wherever she goes....

    The biggest thing would be that she'd want to keep as many government entities in their place as possible, to help . She would make @Lexa the Leader of the Gaurdsmen, so Lexa could become a Leader there. She'd maybe create a new division for mages, making @Loki Laufeyson the head of creating that. She'd also create a bunch of new positions, that maybe @Big Boss could help with, like increased surveillance and such?

    Of course, she can't do any of this unless she's chosen as the next Governor. Which I feel would be hard to do, considering she just got here this season. Maybe she challenges Lexa and Loki to a General Election? OR meets with them both and offer them the above positions? Lots of political maneuvering, yah feel? Maybe Loki pushes her on the seat because he feels as if he could potentially manipulate her trusting nature? Less him in the position and more him pulling the strings?

    If you guys don't like this newcomer coming in and such, I totes understand. *rolls away back to bad plot island*

    The MSF would be available as a Militia until the Bay creates one. The recent attacks are a good excuse to install them, and they'd be repaid by being granted rights to build a base on the island they're planning on taking as Mother Base.

    So @Big Boss Are you looking to have MSF declare allegiance to CB as a militia? Cause that seems against their code....

    Or are you offering them as a very temporary defense? Since clearly CB is suffering from lack of force needed to keep their citizens in line? Once a defense is created you'll withdraw? that way: they can establish themselves on CB without the government getting rid of them?

    To MSF it'd just be another contract. One of their services as a PMC is to act as a temporary militia for a nation whilst helping to train their own soldiers. MSF would still go to war with Cascade Bay is hired to at a later date (They won't switch sides whilst under a contract)

    I like the idea of having Loki becoming something like a consultant to the new government about magic and politics (since he is also a prince), instead of having a direct position. He is also member of the Justice League, so there is a conflict of interest too. He would not participate in any kind of elections but would actually support @Jessamine Kaldwin in order to gain power through a different path. He would offer advice, leading her down a darker path. Plus this would not trigger @Merlin Ambrosius 's concerns right?! Since he just wants what is best for the town...

    I don't think Merlin will ever think Loki just wants what is best for the town. xD He knows him too well for that already and we all know how stubborn Merlin is when he is paranoid about a baddie.

    But it could be fun conflict anyway! We'll figure something out!

    Lexa would be perfect for leading the guardsmen. As much as she would want to lead the entire town, it's a different world compared to what she lead back home. So though she is a great leader, I think it would be more beneficial for her to lead the guards rather than be governor. So there won't be too much opposition from Lexa ^^
