((aka, Naja is being very careful about this, lol. Sorry :D though she isn't actually excepting to get an answer from the secretary, but damn if she won't try))


Dear those who can read this,

You may know me, you may not. Most of you should. I am President Naja Salaheem of the Salaheem Sentinels. This matters naught. My concerns do not rest entirely on all of you at the moment. However, the one I do wish to speak with is this "secretary" that has worked for Mayor Heirwidthal, and is presumably working for this city's new one.

The three others who can read this are currently the only ones I will entrust with any of this information, for the safety of all.

Please, miss secretary, I'd like to request a moment of your time for a meeting. As myself being a foreigner, I can see how... troublesome that may be for you, however, it may be best for the city. You may be the only one who can help us understand the troubles that you are currently (most likely) going through, as well as the ones that you had. Not everyone believes everything is going along as... smoothly as you've left us to imagine.

I know your police are "working" on matters, but I still request a private meeting with you; myself, and... colleague, Fox McCloud. If you are even reading this board, please at least respond to me. I'm a curious little kitten, after all... If we don't hear from you, we still play on going to city hall anyway.


Wouldn't it be best to have things organized, Miss?



President Naja Salaheem

Dear Citizens of Paixao,

The sudden loss of my rival and adversary, 'The Mayor', has been just as shocking to me as I'm sure it was to all of you. I too wanna hear some answers, hear more details about this horrendous crime and know just who is responsible. However, I doubt we'll be hearing anything soon from the officials due to lack of information shared in the past about certain events. None the less, anyone who does know something about it, I trust... Well, I hope you do what's best with the information.

On the note of the mayors seat now being free, I boldly accept the big comfy chair and take on the role of becoming your leader, C.E.O, and 'ol Mayor myself. As your leader person, it's in my best interest to look out for the well bein' of citizens n' guests of the city, doing all in my power to keep 'em safe from harm and keep 'em as informed as I have over the several past months.

-that reminds me, any gifts you wish to present to me for all my hard work will be accepted. You know, gold, pearls, diamonds, expensive jewellery... That kinds stuff.

Sincerely,

The Future Mayor of Paixao

PAIXAO-- Citizens and esteemed guests of Paixao, it is with great sorrow that we inform you of the untimely passing of Oturo Heirwidthal, celebrated Mayor of Paixao. Rest assured that the police force has closed off the office and we are looking into the cause of his death at this time. Any details that we gather on the situation will be forwarded to you as soon as we are able to give you the information.

Fifth Mayor of Paixao since the city's founding, Oturo Heirwidthal, 52, performed great services for Paixao during his ten years in office, bringing innovation and protection to this city when other Mayors failed. Mayor Heirwidthal was the first to bring new technology to Paixao, setting up the journal program for citizens and guests alike to utilize as an unparalleled resource in the city. His funding for the research of inter-dimensional travel has sparked hope among the people of the city, especially for our guests who find themselves stranded here.

The past ten years have been delightful ones with Mayor Heirwidthal to guide us, and he will be greatly missed.

Hello, fellow peeps and cronies! Your moderator has returned. -well, not to say I ever left. Trust me, I ain't goin' anywhere. I just haven't posted anything in awhile. It's been a little difficult. You know how some parties can get a little out a hand. Or should I say festivals? I knew it was a bad idea... Here's my thanks to 'The Mayor' for that catastrophe.

In other news, many visitors and citizens have recently fallen ill. As reported earlier by 'The Mayor', it seems to affect everyone in different ways. It's suspected that the source of this illness was caused by contamination in the water supply. Who's responsible for contaminating it is still unknown, though I personally have a pretty good idea who is to blame...

There is currently no known way to reverse the effects of this unknown illness, but I would suggest a visit to one of the cities clinics or hospitals anyway. There may be something they can do for you.

At the moment, there are five known visitors to be suffering from this illness. Another case has recently appeared, forcing me to hope to raise more awareness to avoid more from catching it. Anyone known to suffering from unusual symptoms, any unusual symptoms, is asked to report to the clinic before contacting me. As much information as I'd like to collect as soon as possible, your health should come first.

Also as mentioned, as a precaution, water that hasn't been bottled, boiled, or purified should be avoided.

And, as usual, to end I'm giving the usual warning to avoid members of the organization (commonly known for their matching black coats). They are extremely dangerous. For your own safety, do not associate with them. New information on them will always be accepted at any time.

Remember: Be on the look out for suspicious activity and don't travel alone. There's safety in numbers and all that.

Citizens and visitors of Paixao - more specifically, to our visitors:

It saddens me that I must begin this notice with an apology. I have noticed the abrupt influx of visitors to our streets, and to all of you that have just arrived: Welcome to our fair city! I am only sorry that you have arrived here during a troubled time.

It is my duty as Mayor to warn you of the strange maladies that have befallen many of us of late - many of the visitors and citizens alike have fallen ill, including even myself. It seems to affect everyone in different ways, so be cautious. Our authorities are investigating the matter, but we cannot at this point rule out foul play, nor have we yet discovered the source from which all this originated. If anyone has any information on the subject, please report it to myself or the police immediately! I hope that by working together we can get to the bottom of this once and for all.

That said, I wish, again, to welcome all the newcomers to our city. While we are not currently sure how it is that you were brought here, please know that our scientists are working diligently on the development of transportation back to your respective homes, and have been making great strides in the area.

In the meantime, if you are in need of lodging, the Actua Are Hotels, Haja o Que Houver, Iriela Apartments, O Pastor Hotel, and Villas Salonas have all agreed to provide significant discounts to foreign refugees. The Palazzo Townhomes and Vocea Condominiums have also informed me they are accepting new tenants.

I hope, despite the difficult times upon us all, that we may have this all resolved in the near future. Thank you all for your patience.

Sincerely,

The Mayor of Paixao

Attention, citizens and guests of Paixao:

Despite the recent string of unfortunate events, please let me assure you that Paixao is a peaceful place. Our citizens are making every accomodation possible for you, our guests. Apartments are being emptied, and soon you will be allowed to apply for them. We are making further expansions to our schools so that all of those eligible can attend.

Paixao is a land of tradition, however. It is hard to believe that we are almost upon our centennial year. Our founders did not expect much when they set foot on this island, expecting only to live in isolationist peace. But we have had our highs and lows, our periods of economic growth and bustling trade, and it is due to all this that Paixao is what it is today, and can accomplish all these things. We must never forget that.

Therefore, it is my pleasure as mayor to invite you to our 95th Annual Foundation Day Festival. Admission, food, games and entertainment are complimentary, and catering will be generously provided by the Ersesat Company. However, because of this, I must ask everyone who plans to be there to RSVP in this post, so that our caterers will know how much food to prepare.

Though most of the fair is free of charge to everyone, this year we will also be holding a paid raffle, to help raise funding for our research into offworld transportation. The winner will receive his or her choice of prizes, the nature of which will be given in more detail at the event itself.

The festivities begin at the Jogo da Crianca Fairgrounds in three days' time, and I am also planning to attend. I hope to see all of you there.

Thank you,

The Mayor of Paixao

I apologize about the internal chaos that most of you have faced in your short, or lengthy periods of time here in the grand city of Paixao. I must offer my sincerest apologies for the predicament that we are now all in.

With the initial arrivals of those mysteriously pulled into our city, the government officials committed a grave error by ignoring the problem, presuming that it would solve itself in time. While some who have come have left just as mysteriously, there are many who are still stranded here with little options available.

I must apologize, once again, that no one is able to get in touch with their own homes. However, Paixao's technology has never had a use for such capabilities, and thus interworld communication was not developed. You can have my assurances that this technology's development is being expedited, and hopefully communication to other worlds will soon be possible.

However, please bear with as as this will take some time.

Transportation home has also been an issue of concern for many of our guests, and it has been worked on, but more internally. Within the next few weeks, locations in Paixao will be marked off for further reconstruction of our various transportation facilities. They had been dismantled in the past due to a lack of need for them, but as the need grows, we must reassemble. This will take time as most of the parts necessary will be built from scratch. Again, I apologize profusely.

As much as you are all tired of waiting and want answers, many I do not have, nor have the understanding to offer even a vague explanation, the government has begun work on a housing system, setting aside empty and unused apartments for the use of Paixao's guests until a time where everyone is returned to their specific world.

These apartments will soon be open for application and assignment.

Additionally, Paixao will open its education system to those who are missing valuable time in school due to the circumstances. Those of schooling age will be able to attend our respective primary and secondary schools. I encourage everyone who can to use this to their advantage, as Paixao can learn from you as much as you can learn from us.

In exchange, I emphasize that guests do not leave the walls of Paixao. These walls were not built for decoration, but rather for protection from the Lumens of the outside world, and we cannot claim responsibility for anything that happens outside of the city's walls.

As for the recent reporting of kidnappings, the Paixao police are looking into them. Several areas have been quarantined off for inspection, and more information will become public as we find it.

And as for a final note, please do not panic about the recent waves on amnesia. Our scientists are also looking into that, but as of right now, they are spread quite thin and cannot work to resolve everything as quickly as they would under normal circumstances.

If you have any further questions, please refer them to me directly.

Thank you,

The Mayor of Paixao

So, let's review, shall we? -get a pencil. First, we have the million clams, then the morning fur brushing, the life time supply of grubs, the solid gold crown, the large waterhole, the lush jungle home, and.. Eh, what was that last one again? Oh! I remember now, that peace and harmony thing.

Alright! Now that that's all settled, lets get down to business. As most of you know, recently I've become the newly elected Mod and soon to be mayor of this place. And, already I've collected more than enough info that the current maggot headed mayor would even so much as think about sharing.

First of all, this whole nice guy thing he's got goin' on? It's a big sham. He's just as demanding and selfish as Laharl the know it all giraffes. He even threatened me! Insulted me! Can you believe it?

And he calls himself 'The Mayor'. He's not even in charge of this place. Someone else is. He works for somebody as well as works with certain somebodies. The organization?

He also knows how we can get back home. Thing is, it's 'classified information'. He'll deny knowing it, but if he LEFT THE CITY how could he NOT know how WE can leave? Think about that one!

I realize that there are things you people would rather be doing, but last time I checked, it was against company protocol to miss a meeting. As such, I must ask where the current President of Shinra Co. and his associates can be located.

My lead turned out to be a bust, unfortunately. Ms. Chere has, it would seem, vanished from this city. On that note, I wonder if the employees of ShinRa I have had contact with have also suffered a similar fate and, if not, if they are willing to provide locations so that I can meet with them. It would seem that time is of the essence.

I am aware that while I was on a short trip, my secretary has used my journal, but still was unsuccessful in preventing the outburst of a post such as this. Please, feel free to read such a post, on contrary to what my secretary has written. However I would like to note with what kind of ignorance and desperate individuals those who do take the post must be. Certainly, I myself would not want a mayor who wishes for a pampering and knows little about the works of the city-- much less acquainted with the security around here, may I add.

I will not tolerate individuals barging in and out of Paixao, claiming to be the new mayor. Things are as chaotic as they are with recent events and it would be best for everyone if such outbursts did not occur in the future.

Attention all Paixins... Paixaonies, Paxories? Oy, what were they callin' them again? ...Paixaoans! -yeah, that's the one. *ahem* This is your newly elected moderator speaking; the one and only me! And it is with high spirits I boldly accept my new duty of taking care of all you little people out there. Unlike that lousy, good for nothin' mayor, I will be answering your questions and dealing with both new and old visitors to the island.

Now then, as your royal person, leader, CEO, and... Eh, basic, good old fashion moderator I have but a few simple demands:

First, I would like peace and harmony amongst all the Paixaoans of the island. -yeah, that's good. And second, I'd like a million dollars. Or pearls... Or clams, something expensive.

Actually! Why don't you give me the million clams first, and we'll do peace and harmony amongst all the Paixaoans second? That works well.

-Oh! Yeah, and third, I want a full body fur brushing every morning with a nice, stiff bristled bush.

...you know, now that I think of it, why don't you give me the clams and the fur brushing first and second 'cause their easy ones and third we'll do the peace and harmony amongst the paixaoans stuff.

Due to the rash actions of several foreigners, now more than ever, Paixao needs a police force. In addition, other more polite foreigners have pointed out to my office that they need 'help'-- which might or might not be handled willingly by the new local police force.

Now, I am sure that all of you are wondering about the location of these local police offices that I claim to have created around the city. The red marks the location of the newly found police stations that are currently established. As you can see, there is one at each gate, and a larger one near the center of the city. The smaller ones have officers who are assigned to make sure that new foreigners properly follow the rules and regulations. Those that to not will be taken to the center of the city-- our 'jail', for those of you that are familiar with the term. It is, in addition, Paixao's police headquarters. Please note however, we will not tend to the smaller whims of foreigners: although, we will take it under consideration.

Anyone (including 'foreigners') who is in need of food, or any other material can try to 'trade' for it at a police station. I am sure that at least several officers can be convinced into having such a trade in exchange for manual labor.

Questions that are RELATED to the topic stated can be directed to this post. Please refrain from the idiotic comments as in the last 'free-for-all' post that I made. Thank you for your cooperation.

The Mayor of Paixao speaking.

Firstly, I would like to welcome all of those who have been in Paixao. The greeting is probably late for many of you but... I hope that you are somewhat enjoying your stay here.

My secretary has informed me that several of you have filed complaints regarding Paixao. Because of the mass number of them, I think it would be much more efficient to answer questions and complains using the Journal Message Boards. Through this post, comment with any questions and/or complaints and I will try to respond to them.
