♛♛♛♛ From the Administrator ♛♛♛♛
Tal Citizens and friends

Welcome to the first edition of our newly printed newspaper headed up by the very capable and talented hands of Thrice and his lady, Sara. I look forward to seeing what they will come up with to keep us entertained and informed. With this latest achievement for our city I can say that I am proud of the efforts we have all made so far.

This first month has been one filled with milestones.

From creating and adapting a working set of laws, to having a dedicated council, to the beauty of the Isle that we inhabit there have been great strides in creating a foundation to last and to grow upon. Each one of you, our zealous citizens make up a part of that foundation. One that I see continually press forward day by day to do whatever it is we can to help our home flourish.

With the conclusion of our first council meeting much was accomplished. The High Magistrate voted in, the Merchant Head of Caste, and we were introduced to a candidate for becoming a magistrate in the near future. We heard reports, and marveled at the hard work of our fellow compatriots with promises of more on the horizon.

Very soon we will be having a celebration. Feasting, frolic and games to earmark the next month. To have more to talk about and remember as each day we create lasting bonds to further knit our growing community together.

I am forever proud of our accomplishments and the dedication shown.

Thank you and Hail Tassis!

The first meeting of the Tassis High Council convened this past week. For those of you missing this historic event, your Tassis Tribune made a transcription. (available in the in world document)


Sinkholes Plague Tassis

Lammira Resident, Chief Builder, said “we believe that all the sinkholes that popped up due to the baths construction have been fixed… proceed with caution in the forested area behind the companionship pavilion.” Thus far, no reports of residents falling into a sinkhole have been reported, nor has any single builder been signaled out for discipline for making this mess.

Some have speculated the sink holes, so far confined to that specific area, is riddles with tunnels for a certain free woman to hide her treasures, Lady Wimple had no comment.

❤♀❤♂❤The Male Perspective and The Womanly Way♀❤♂❤

The scribe pulled out a marking stick and began to write: “What happens when your daughter accepts a companion? Do you suddenly stop being the man in charge? Do you relinquish your right to protect her and over see her life? The simple answer is yes, but we all know that old habits die hard and it isn’t easy to admit that another man will now guide her life. Are you a true Gorean man? If you are then you must accept the patriarchy. Gorean family are always led by the oldest MALE of the family. If you want to be the head of your family? Then have sons!” with that the scribe threw the writing stick to the ground and mumbled the family name of his daughter’s new companion. Despite his current feelings, at least he knew his daughter would be cared for and treated well.


The scribe scowled, but picked the writing stick up from the floor. Gleaning what her mate wrote, she puts her own thoughts to paper. Losing a daughter to companionship, even a good match, is harder for women, she writes.

Everyone knows caste is passed from the father to the child. but the mother teaches their child, and in the case of a daughter, argues and prods, and often becomes good friends. Someone who, while learning, actually helps run the household. A father worries about their daughter’s physical safety and well being, a mother worries about that but also their emotional state. Is she happy? Was she afraid? Did she. as her mother, do all she could to prepare their daughter to face the world? And why doesn’t she ever write or call! And where’s my grandchildren!



🙈 🙉 🙊 🙈 🙉 🙊 Tassis Tattletale 🙈 🙉 🙊 🙈 🙉 🙊

Gossip, I mean information from around the port that you KNOW you just can’t live without!

Have you found Waldo, Wally or is that Walderin yet? I hear he has launched some new ships designs out to sea! However, none have come back yet, but we are positive that something might come back. See Rec Rembrandt for your wagers.

I hear the physicians are salivating, ok maybe Just Lady Rosa, at the opportunity to test medical clinical trials on defying Gorean gravity. She was seen leaving the infirmary commenting on some new slave girl “my Priest Kings, how do those puffy things remain so rigid, may have found a new way to hang my robes”

The Scribes have been growing in size, maybe they multiple with just water. The secret, now not so secret investigation is under way!

Is there any truth to these barbarian land rumors some of these crazed beasts talk about? People usually shun such matters but some of the attire recently seen does make someone pause and go “What the Flavarian Float is that??”

Sara lives here now. I know, I am not joking!

Newsflash: the Infirmary is locked, it is not a free for all grab kanda marketplace, in which we do not stock either. Last poor soul that did that ate poisoned kanda, so sad, can’t even recall the name now either, so sad too. I have tears in my eyes truly!
