Gentlemen and Ladyfolk and the UnderEmpire! Revolutionaries, counter-revolutionaries, and counter-counter-revolutionaries! Gather, and let us commence with the final segment of any election process - the election itself! It is time to have your say in who rules in the UnderEmpire with grace, wisdom, and of course some Skaven cunning. It is time to vote for the newest member of the Council of Thirteen!

As you may or may not have heard, it's been an eventful month in the UnderEmpire. Rusty Tincanne, officially named Nurglitch VII, has stepped down from his filthy seat to join the Honoured Lords and Ladies of Decay in retirement. The Lords and Ladies of Decay took this moment of weakness to take over the Council in a bloody revolution! Realizing being a Council is less glorious tyrannical triumph and more calm and calculated monitoring, they surrendered and fled back to their cozy wheelchairs at the retirement home. With that in the past, it's time to vote.

The Council has spent ample time reading, rereading, and in some cases, rerererereadinginginging the Letters Of Intent, and after weeks of discussion, we've come to a consensus on which three members are most ready to join the Council. To the rest of you - we thank you for writing your Letter of Intent, and obviously you're a diamond of the site for having been nominated - we simply feel three are better suited for the position at this moment in time. Keep being awesome, stay active, keep contributing, and you'll be on the ballot, and one day you'll be on the Council.

The three members chosen are (in alphabetical order):

Flem

Ratty Gnawtail

Sketch


Now, good citizens of the UnderEmpire, please cast your vote. You one get one vote, so take some time, and choose who you'd feel most comfortable governing this lovely gem of a site. Yes, you may vote for yourself. We shall leave this election running for two weeks, meaning on Monday, April 16th, 2012, the voting will be over, and the member with the most votes will join the Council, to govern and judge, to watch and monitor, to keep the peace, to listen to the membership, and to respond with both wisdom and haste.

That's all there is to say. All me to finish with something every Skaven could use a little bit of, every now and then:


Good luck
;)

To add to what Vorg said, I want to congratulate all the members who were nominated and especially those who wrote Letters of Intent. It was an exceedingly difficult choice to make for all of us which speaks volumes about all involved. :)

Ratty's reaction to making it to the final three: What?!*

A big thank you to the crazy people rats who thought I would make a good Council member as well as the members of the glorious Council who thought the same. Much condolences to those who didn't get to the final three (I've had to throw away my predictions list now!) as well as much hearted luck to my fellow competitors. It surely marks such a great forum that we have so many members who could be brilliant Mods, and I am over the moon to think that I am even regarded as one of them. Thank you all! And best of luck to the one and only Sketch and the most Fabulous Flem!** :)

**What? I've always wanted to write a description like that! :P

A blood curling cough a day, keeps the assassins away

First off a big thanks to all those of the counsil that would vieuw me as worthy, it's quite the honour to be nominated. Especially since we are talking about the seat of Nurglitch IIX ! The competition seems like they have the needed stamina to endure what ever vile and sickening tricks i'm about to let out of my box...
Second my sympathies to all the great names that didn't get nominated, seems like i'll have to make up for that when and if i get elected ;)
Third, my shipments of bribes, blackmails and assassination orders have been spent. For your sake i hope your on the good side of the Pestilent brotherhood!

Flem,

I am running on a write-in campaign, so I need the support. I'll give you 10 warp tokens and 15 "lightly-used" slaves for your first vote. 5 tokens and 6slaves for each vote you manage to cast thereafter. :P

*lets out a long.... LONG sigh*

I had guessed 3 of us 4, but I hadn't counted on being the odd man out, but there's always next time and till then I'm back to being the underlord!

I won't say who I caste my vote for until afterwords, but I will say that ALL of the chosen 3 are EXCELLENT nominees and EACH of them really deserve a seat.

Cheers mates!

Also just wondering...does the winner get six breeders, a whole host of films, at least one tv series, and a strange competitive drive against the Brets? :P

Lol well i actually googled it, since i was doubting which one of the 2 it was. The IIX one turned up more on reliable sites so i went with that. You can't trust the internet it seems :P

@Ratty Gnawtail:
Your new inventory will more or less consist of six mops, a series of weekends filled with fun... learning Council procedures and such, and this burning sensation in your stomach when coming in the vicinity of spam. (Interpretate that however you want *winks*...). :lol:

IT comes down to weather or not the Romans believed in order precident. Obviously there are very few Romans left around to ask, though I do hope to run into Longinus again some time.

If we allow that order of letters matter, then IIX is correct, being 2 BEFORE 10.
If order doesn't matter, then VIII is correct, being 5 and 3. Of course, IIIV, and IVII would also be correct, only tradion puts them in VIII order. For small number it doesn't matter, but when working with something like 1999 (a good year to party!) the difference between MIM, MCMXCIX, and MDCCCCLXXXXVIIII is pretty significant.

Also, your Sig Banner is HUGE!
