Malarbor Says
Malarbor says: The so-called War of Nicki's Minaj has shuddered to a halt in the face of the Mingshi Emperor's "ingenious" defensive strategy of having his defenders commit suicide under the supervision of omnipresent meditative monks, before deleting the evidence in a fit of pique. The Emperor and the returning Diwang then mutually suicided each other bringing us up to the present stalemate. The Alexandrian's have liberated Penguin Island while the Realm of Passio-Corum has placed a sizeable slice of Jingdao's oversea's territory under its own "protection". To accommodate all of these occurrences within a single narrative, where Jingdao is somehow utterly triumphant, has resulted in a display of sophistry that is quite dazzling in its dissonant brilliance. We welcome the advent of the curiously familiar sounding Kuominliantang and the fantastical efforts of an empire to appropriate for itself the rhetorical mantle of anti-imperialism. The only people who are fooled are the ones who want to be fooled (hello, Jack).

Elsewhere the Kaiseress has departed for Athlon on "family business", leaving the somewhat disengaged Steward Dravot in charge once again. As for the nature of that family business, while it is not Malarbor's place to pass judgement (it ought to be though) it does appear that once again, a Kalirion has allowed sentiment to overcome judgement and that a massacre will inevitably ensue. Let's be honest, the only plot twist will be if the daft mare survives.

Meanwhile, there are strange burbling noises emanating from Amokolia. Malarbor assumes that the Nordic yokels are drunk again.

    Mevwan Calendar

    12 months:

    Winter:
    Snowmonth
    Starmonth
    Icemonth
    Spring:
    Dawnmonth
    Meltmonth
    Flowermonth
    Summer:
    Leafmonth
    Wavemonth
    Sunmonth
    Autumn:
    Firemonth
    Duskmonth
    Frostmonth

    Months are usually 30 days, except Snowmonth, which is 35 and occasionally 36 when this is called for to make the lunar and solar calendars match up.

    Weeks are five days long and named after colors. The standard set is Whiteday, Redday, Yellowday, Greenday, and Blueday, but various locales and subcultures prefer different colors for all days except the standard Whiteday (the most common alternate set is Whiteday, Grayday, Blackday, Brownday, and Silverday).

    Mevwan uses the same year-numbers that are given in the early Autokrator's Addresses. This indicates that May 10th was year 1. The year that falls on a given date can be calculated here (enter May 9th as the start date or check the 'include end date' tickybox); the date of a given year can be calculated here (enter May 9th as the start date).
