My people, you true citizens of our city of light. I apologize for my silence in this terrible time. In the chaos that ensued after the heinous act of yet another interloper, I found myself torn in several directions all at once and only now do I have the time to give you an official word.

Paixao, you have shown your strength these last few days. While clearing away the remains of our city and striving to find the bodies of our loved ones, we've barely had the chance to grieve, yet you forge on with your head held high. You are the spirit of our beautiful town. And I know as long as we hold on to that, no madness or violence will sway us.

I will not lie to you good folk. It will take time to rebuild. We have a very long road ahead, made all the more dangerous by the presence of those outsiders who have the very gall to condescend to us in our time of sorrow. But we don't need their help. Too many times have they shown their true colors. Too many times has their belief that they are somehow better than us lead to their complete disrespect and abuse.

We can restore the light to Paixao, we can rebuild our paradise. But only if we turn away these reckless foreigners once and for all. I regret now the hand of offering I extended to them once. They do not deserve our compassion or understanding.

And to you outsiders listening -- know this: you are not welcome here. Your presence will not be tolerated. Your help is not needed. I don't care where you go or how, but you will not be allowed into our city again. I swear it.

-- Mayor Marcus Praetoris

Paixao --

Now that the snowfall has stopped, I would request that all citizens pitch in with the cleanup, specifically around the train tracks so that transportation may run more efficiently again. I have been reminded that many Outsiders have filed for citizenship with the City of Paixao - I request that those who have also assist in the efforts. I, myself, will be out working to clear the snow in hopes of returning to business as usual for our city.

Additional help of unregistered Outsiders is, of course, welcomed.

Thank you,

Mayor Marcus Praetoris

((ooc: Yeah some of you may remember this little thing... It is still possible to gain citizenship. Not that you probably want to now. Notifs are wonky so tags may be slow, if at all. he's good at ignoring particular people (Timon)))

Citizens of Paixao, I ask that you forgive my absence from our fair city. I have journeyed to these other "worlds" that our Outsiders have spoken of and in my travels I have deemed these unruly worlds as a threat to our existence. Therefore, in an effort to protect Paixao from these dangers, I have come to the decision to once more put restrictions to those who wish to leave the domes. Any who try to exit will be be arrested and face punishment under law.

In addition, on the issue of the recent weather: the matter is being looked into.


Thank you,

Mayor Marcus Praetoris

I have yet to address the city as a whole since my election to the position of mayor, and for that, I do apologize. But at last I have selected my staff who, over the next few days, will be aiding myself in rejuvenating Paixao. We have already begun the simpler stages of this process; now, we are to act, and the fruits of efforts will soon be on display for all.

I take the time now to address any pressing matters that any of our foreigners may currently have.

I am looking for Marcus Praetoris. I wish to speak to him. Does anybody know where I would be able to find him?

[a pause, then, in a quieter and slightly worried tone...]

What are Time Lords? And what is the Time War?

ENOUGH.

MARCUS PRAETORIS...YOU HAVE THREE DAYS TO MAKE YOURSELF SEEN. OTHERWISE, PAIXAO AND EVERYONE IN IT WILL BE LEFT IN ASHES.


OH, AND CONGRATULATIONS.

Hello citizens of Paixao and those in between worlds. I am Marcus Praetoris, and I have decided, rather last minute, to submit my name for the upcoming elections. I came to this decision when I sat outside my home and took a look at those moving through the streets. I found that I was troubled by how our city has grown and changed so extraordinary as time has gone on, and we have shifted far from our customs because of our lack of leadership.

This is wrong.

With this election, I believe that it’s time we return to the traditions that we know to be true in our hearts. Please, my citizens, stand by me so that we may reclaim our city and nourish it back to its proper standing.
