[Bill] Asaïsh Land Trade Bill

* Sings. * :singer:



And who are you,


the proud horde spoke,


that we should avoid your land.



Only the queen of a different den,


that's all the truth we know.



A king of this, a queen of that,


really means naught to us.



We've been fighting kings since the days of dawn,


and we have always won.



And so they spoke, and so they spoke,


that horde of barbarians.



But now the winds wail over their bones,


with no one there to hear.



Yes now the winds wail over their bones,


and not a soul to hear.

Lady Law Speaker

 

While I approve of the principle for a land trade so that Ravaria may be brought under Storish jurisdiction, I would like to have answered whether it is land on Vanaorb or Micras that will be traded or perhaps both, and where His Majesty believes that the Kingdom of Ravaria should be located.

 

As a lawyer, I am also intrigued by the future constitutional changes that this may bring. Will the Storjarla cede the throne to her father or will she remain queen, albeit as a vassal to His Majesty?

Lady Law Speaker, Honourable Jarls,

 

Since the Viceroyalty of the High Queen Asa Isles only owns land on the Dark Side, the land trade under this Bill will only take place on Micras.

 

I'm futhermore of the mind that Ravaria should be located on the island next to the Snow Jarldom.

 

As for the future constitutional arrangements, Storjarla Æsileif will remain Queen of Ravaria and aforesaid Kingdom will for now be a protectorate of the High Realm.

Lady Law Speaker,

 

I thank His Majesty for his reply and would like to bring him to the attention of the former Elwynnese trade station of Mina Durtarui on Snaeland which has now been vacated by the Elwynnese republic. Could perhaps the trade-deal include an expansion of Snaeland so that the whole island becomes part of the jarldom?

I'm in agreement with the Borgarjarl and I will therefore include the acquisition of the former Elwynnese trade station of Mina Durtarui on Snaeland in the Bill.
