Malarbor Says
Malarbor says: A new Charter has been promulgated by the Kaiser, cementing the permanence of dynastic rule and the outcome of the Auspicious Occasion.The powers of the regency have been invested in the Imperial Advisory Council and the Steward, Liv Dravot, now has one year remaining to her term after which elections for her successor must be held.

A number of overseas territories, including Ura'Bos, have been evacuated. Resources freed up by decolonisation have been invested into securing the Lywall protectorate, a buffer between Malarboria and the hostile environment of the inner Benacian Green.

The Elwynnese Monarchy has been abolished following the promulgation of a new republican constitution. The former King, Vilhjalm of Elwynn, continues in office as interim Prince. His successor will, in due course, be elected by the Elwynnese Senate. The exiled King Noah and his followers maintain their pretence to their former titles.

Daniyal Dravot, a veteran Elwynnese imperial minister, politician, businessman, and husband of the Steward, is suffering a grievous illness and, at ninety-four years of age, faces the looming spectre of Mors himself. Rather than accept the inevitable he has ventured on a pilgrimage into Brookshire in pursuit of longevity.

A dubious gentlemen, going by the moniker of Curt Kobain has been seen stalking the island of Yardistan, stoking the remembrance of a time when the isle was ruled by its own Anarch and generally asking "what the hell's happened to this place?" Observers are agreed that he is certainly curt.

    Expatriates and Prel-Stik

    "Have some more fish, Elsio."

    "Er, no thanks, Mom, I don't want to be too weighed down when we get to playing prel-stik later," Elsio demurred. "I've missed playing with all you guys... is the court up the road still open?"

    "Oh, you must miss prel-stik," said her brother. "Don't they play weird foreign sports up there - ball in a basket, that sort of thing?"

    "It's not 'ball in a basket'. But yeah. I can still play prel-stik, though. There's a decent Mevwani population in my part of my town. Some of us got together and refitted a building to suit. It's just informal, unisex, no spectators except for the occasional player's boyfriend or girlfriend, but playing at family reunions is informal too. I was never heading for a pro position."

    "Damn," said Elsio's uncle. "Was going to tell you that if you want to run a restaurant and have a chance to play I could ask my sister if she wants to let you run a franchise..."

    Elsio laughed. "I'm happy with the restaurant I have," she said. "And with the league I have. Go Green Ribbons!"

    "Green Ribbons, seriously?" asked the nearest cousin.

    "I didn't vote for that team name," Elsio admitted. "We had to please a bunch of people including some who aren't exactly happy with being expats - there's this man who moved with his wife and she likes Safiria and he really doesn't - but - well."

    "Do the other teams have names that dumb?" the same cousin inquired.

    "Depends on what you think makes a dumb name. There's, let's see. Sister Nanthi's Nine. Least Cosash. The Squids -"

    Her mother butted in. "Are these all about where they're from - you're on the normal Mainlander team and then there's Islanders and Cosashi and Lake Province people - or -"

    "No, there's two Islanders and a Cosashi on the Green Ribbons," Elsio said. "But I guess the majorities did fall out that way. Except there's one more team, with a mix of players and no regional hint in what they call themselves."

    "What're they called?" asked Elsio's cousin.

    "Just, The Stikkers."

    I hope that if you're asked "How is Prel-Stick played?", the answer won't be "With gusto!"
