Grayfeared takes note of Jaya's demeanour, "We don't need more bloodshed. We also don't need to let emotions run wild here. We should all calmly discuss the facts. That's the only way we can come to a logical decision. Emotions will do us no good here. We need order. The time for emotions will come. But now is not that time."

" Jaya, now might be a good time to take a breather. We can all agree that the recent events involving the elves could have been done in a better way, but bringing it up and getting emotional about it will do absolutely no one any good.Hugo, I understand your worry about the council being ignored, and that is the purpose of keeping it small. Seven people couldn't be bothered, but three could be. A sheriff who has everyone's interest in mind is the best, but in the end that person will be only one opinion --- an opinion that can make all the difference in the world. If We make the council responsible for that sheriff's behavior, we remove the individuality from the the position. Then, any action taken Is done so by either the council's consent , or condemned by that very same council"

"Well, Degren, that's part of the reason I'd consider a council an unnecessary body. It's better to have a sheriff who is only sheriff by the graces of they people they serve the townsfolk, rather than chain the position to the council. Make sure they have a set of laws to enforce, agreed upon by the town, and make sure the sheriff enforces them. Recent history suggests that sheriffs who are seen as doing a bad job are relieved of the position rather quickly, so no need to worry about a sheriff not doing their job right for too long."

Grayfeared raises an eyebrow at Datura's comment, "This isn't the time to be hurling insults. If you want to get your digs in do it elsewhere. If we don't nip this in the bud now, the meeting will be derailed and then nothing will get done. Which, by the way, is a good example of why we need a council."

Jaya suppresses the urge to toss some fire at a certain someone and instead clenches her fist tighter.  

"I'm just trying to prove a point, this is what the town needs. We can't have people not feeling safe or like their people and beliefs don't matter. Everyone needs to have a voice and there needs to be talking before actions that can have huge consequences. I'm sure you can agree after some comments tonight not everyone will agree with each other so instead of a town meeting that ends up a tavern brawl we should just have a council of civil representatives deal with things.

"We're all here for the same reason. Under Gurok's summon; to speak our minds. If we cannot, this whole meeting is meaningless. My digs are right here, in this room."

Auron speaks up.

"For what it's worth, I'm also in favor of a council. I feel like we spend far too long talking about what to do, and not enough time taking action. A small council would allow for quick, informed decision making. It would be formed by people chosen by the entire town, so doesn't that help ensure all voices are represented in some way?"

"I'm going to bite my tongue on a comment in favor of asking the lot of you to stay on the topic of the role of the sheriff for now. The desire for a small council has been voiced already."

"If you're interested in a fist fight however, take it outside."

"You seem uneasy, Jaya. Is it because you don't have a logical reply to my comment about elves? You said it yourself. We can't have people feeling unsafe. Those elves caused exactly that. Pick your side. I'd suggest you choose carefully; I can see you 'heating' up over there."

Talia walks out of the kitchen with a huge piece of delicious pie in hand.

"Sorry, I couldn't help but overhear. I realize I'm new here and my opinion may not matter to any of you but it seems to me that the problem with this town is the lack of unity."

She takes an enormous bite of the pie. For dramatic effect or because it's so yummy she can't help herself, nobody knows. She swallows and continues.

"All I'm saying is no council or sheriff will stay in place if the people in this town are against each other. You all need to lighten up! This is probably one of the weirdest, scariest places I've ever come across so you need to stand together."

She finishes the last of the pie and sighs in disappointment.

"Unite the town first, then work on the council because that is a good idea. Have a party or something! Do something fun together! I don't know, have a huge brawl to get your anger out! Just do something or this town is going to destroy itself. "

She leaves to find more pie.

"Datura, do the rest of us a favor and shut up. If you want to bitch and moan about fey politics, go find a venue that *isn't* the middle of a town meeting. Perhaps you and Jeya could take it outside, maybe somewhere non-flammable."

"Alright, putting all that aside," Grayfeared sighs, "Who do we have as nominations for the sheriff? I believe fairy nominated Gurok. Currently I'm against it. However, if the position were changed to make it answer to a council, I would change my vote to support the decision. Are there any other nominations?"

"I would like to nominate Sir Gallagher for the position of sheriff. While new, I believe he has a functioning sense of justice and duty which is ideal for the position."

"And Datura, do you want the Inn burned down again, because this is the sort of bullshit that gets the Inn burned down again."

"I'm done wasting my energy. Datura's unsympathetic views on others is his own problem, not mine.

I believe Faerie appointed that position to Gurok? Is that not correct?"

"If someone burns the tavern, so be it. It'll only display Gurok's failure to unify and create peace. That being said, I nominate Pierre. Nobody has a more solid mind than him. He would only better this town in every way. Trustworthy, just, and powerful."

"As much as I hate to say it, I'm inclined to agree with Datura. Pierre would make an ideal sheriff. Consider that my nomination as well, pending further discussion on what the position actually entails, and who they serve."

He turns to Jaya: "Also, uh, and I really don't mean any disrespect by this, but... when did Faerie get the authority to appoint the sheriff of our town? I don't recall ever having a discussion about that."

"Faerie can appoint whoever the fuck they want, all the fuck they want. Their influence may be able to swallow your minds whole, but to the rest of us, that tyrant's opinions do not matter."

"Maybe it's what's stopping Faerie from leveling this town or at least those who are disrespectful. I wouldn't test Faerie's patience if it's what they want we should at least try. I also could be wrong it could be a recommendation and we're free to choose how we see fit"

"That... sounds a little bit like we're being strong-armed into doing what Faerie wants, doesn't it? "Appoint who I choose, and do as I say, or I may level your town!"

Is that really the entity you choose to worship? I truly mean no disrespect by asking this, but I must know."
