Exactly. He can't be the first person in the world to have swallowed (successfully) a fish bone. I do fear that there is some chance of damage as well, but my childhood science fair experience tells me that once it hits his stomach, he's got nothing to fear. The acid will dissolve the bone enough to make it less pointy. In fact, if it stays in his stomach long enough, it'll dissolve entirely. Yeay hydrochloric acid experiments. :)

Now we can hope that the GM knows that. Or doesn't care to make you do fish-bone removal surgery.

Of course, if it does happen, there's a good reference for anasteasa-less surgery in the Akira Kurosawa movie "Red Beard." http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058888/

It would be preferable to be able to perform surgery without causing significant head trauma in the patient though.

All right!! New LA is up and running, and when all is now said and done I am pleased with the Ill'har's judgment. And with the Dankin's matter behind us we can get on to some other stuff.

There has been a quite a bit of talk about having a faern rank in order to take care of the books that were found in the tomb. I think that this is a little too soon in that we have no ink or paper and other then those books, he won't have much to do. I think that we should give the books to An'jhali, she would learn allot from them and she already has a blank book to work with.

Also the there has been a little talk about having a cleaner, someone to clean around the runes, overseer the baths, clean the cloths and deal with the bodily waste. I mean we have been here for awhile now, some part of these runes must be smelling pretty funk now.

And here is a new idea, Ill'har for those who are not employed yet, it might help for you to have some kind of billboard that states when a group is hiring. I mean that must be some kind of limit as to how many people can be working with something; exp: the crafter can only work with as much clay as the harvester can bring them and that clay must last them intell the next shipment or they are going to be sitting around with nothing to do. By having a billboard a person can take a job where there is great need and would know when a job he really wants is open.
(By billboard I was thinking of the wall next to the bottom of her stairs and a bit of chalk or tiles, and on the page just an off scene note)

((To me, a 'Janitor' rank is not one I'd back because I look at ranks from the perspective of what resource they will generate or capability they'd make available for An'jhali's clan. Having someone use actions to clean doesn't really generate a resource, nor would they be able to convert a resource into something else useful. I could also argue that cleaning is done by the unemployed faceless. They have to earn their algae and 'sea'food someway.

I would also use a similar argument for the 'Faern' rank. What would a 'Faern' rank really provide the Clan with? A history of whoever lived here before us? That is nice as fluff, but in the official comic won't result in advancing the Clan very much, in my perspective. I could see a "faern's" responsibilities being part of the Mana Specialist as a side responsibility though.))

A Faern could be a historian of the clan, and book keepers.

A Faern might be an upcoming rank that would be available now.

I mean we have a room full of scrolls to look after and decipher.
Plus we also have a mounting number of judgements which should be recorded along with our own history.

I think combining the Faern and Mana Specialist fields might give enough justification to open a new rank, since the combined responsibilities of the two fields should be enough for a ranked to work with.

Good update, very happy with the result (good relation with traders). Interesting to see that voters get to feel the consequences of their "actions". Ah well, best of luck next time Danikin, although maybe not on future banditing issues. }:3

Thalar: I've always supported the idea of a mana specialist. A combination rank could be workable, and has been suggested before, but never been put up for the vote. Perhaps if someone makes it this time, it'll get the needed support.

Though I wonder how many other competing suggestions will pop up this round. There was the olympics idea. People seem keen on a festival of some kind, although I feel we should spend more time working and improving our homes before celebrating. Then there's the Diplomat/Trader thing, too, which STILL might be a bit premature, although a trader semi-rank could be handy to have by the time the traders return...Rykilth did a fine job helping and advicing An'jhali. I'm glad the suggestion got through despite only getting seven votes.

((I don't know if it was actually the voters who felt the consequence. It's possible as the three votes also matched the number of people called out in the LA, but the depicted scenes were taken from specific excerpts from the shoutbox and forums, I believe.

As for the combining of duties for the mana specialist, why don't we take it another step farther and have a Mana Specialist/Faern/Diplomat/Trader? They can make foci and perform research on artifacts when there are no foreign groups to deal with and act like the diplomatic version of the warmaster when there are. (No 'heh' this time. I'm actually being serious.)))

And I'd also like to point out that as we get more resources, like, say, the cloth, we've (the crafters) more to do than just work on clay. :p And as I can set up studios, I plan to do more things like the spinner, where we have production going on in the back-ground, so we don't have to spend face-time on the production of every single tool/trinket/item of clothing/functional object we make.

Of course, now we have the cloth, and that falls directly to my field. I'm open for suggestions about what to do with it. Please remember that out of five bolts, we already have one color defined. It's yellow. I don't know if we can define what the other colors are by action or design. Anyone else know what's going on with that? Suntiger?

I'd like to make something for the Ilhar, and use scraps for color on the flag. Beyond that... This is good surface cloth. We need to use it wisely.

------

As for the mana specialist/faern idea, I think its a good one, and unless someone has serious objections, I'm going to suggest it to Anj'hal (sp?) this turn. If for nothing else than pointing out that glazing pots without some sort of heat creating spell is a pain in the royal ass. (Though I'd not put it that way to her. Clean it up, you know?)

Spontaneous disagreement. On the (maybe-not-so-)off chance it proves to be too much for a single rank to do. Also, Faern/Mana Specialist -likely- has little to do with being a trader.

The ability to see who voted for what option exists in the system. And with the issue being brought before the Ilharess in that way I believe the three pulled in front of her were the ones who voted for the option, mainly because it would be unfair to place someone who didn't vote for that option in their place with the Ilharess directly confronting the characters in question. If the voters hadn't been tracked down there would probably have been two faceless instead.

I think that could work. All four have had too little support or justification alone, but if we combine all those fields the ranked person in question should have enough to do, and if we use this turn to vote for it it might just gather enough support as well (seeing as there's nothing else going on at the moment).

I think we should either combine two and two (Faern(Scholar)/Mana Specialist and Diplomat/Trader), or all four into one.
