Mitgardian Prime Minister Election Round 2

28 posts in this topic

Mitgardians, it is time for new elections. Will Mittenlander be elected again or is it time for someone else to shine?!

I announce: The Parliamentary Election!

What is it? --> A chance for any Mitgardian to create a small campaign (1 post long) and present his/her candidacy for prime Minister of Mitgardia!

Who can run, and who can vote? --> Any Mitgardian Guildsman can run for the post, and all EB members are eligible to vote!!

Why vote for a parliament when wee have a Jarl? --> The wisest ruler recognizes that his power comes from the people he leads; thus it is a good idea to know that their voice is heard through an official governing body.

When is the vote being held? --> The candidates will have 3 weeks (Until December 31th) to create a campaign post (described below) write a short speech, and post it in this thread. Voting will take place between January 1th and January 8th.

How is the vote being held? --> Cast your votes in the poll right here!pirate_thumbup.gif

How do I enter my candidate in the running? --> Basically you post 1 single post in this thread. It must include:

1) A picture of your candidate, (could be just candidate, or a full scene, but he/she must be the dominating figure. Please don't post giant photos.)

2) Write a shot description on their history, why they are running and what changes they hope to bring.

3) Have a fun slogan, or campaign promise. (i.ee lower ale prices, no more orc riots etc)

4) Once a few candidacies are posted you may take a stab at one or more of the other candidates by spreading rumors, attacking their credential or just calling them troll-witted. (If you choose to take the high road you may ignore this section, but what fun is that? :grin:)

Let's have fun with this again! pirate_thumbup.gif

Post your campaigns Below!

I hope the Kaliphlin Times will have 24/7 news coverage of this exciting time. But I heard their rival the Nocturni Herald has already embedded reporters with the campaigns.

I'll most likely be running too. :sweet:

BTW, are we alllowed to have a campaign manager (you know, so that they can write our speeches so that when we don't do what we promised when we win, we won't get in trouble cause we did'nt write them in the first place :wink: )?

No, just kidding :wink: , but do we have to do everything ourselves, or can someone else be the manager? :sceptic:

And also, is the person running supposed to be our sigfig, or someone else?

I am Mich Maxersine, soon to be Prime Minister of Mitgardia, for it is my destiny! I once was a simple farmer, descendant of farmers for decades past, known simply as Mich Maxer. But then an earl of Mitgardia found me, high up in the mountains, watching over my father's goats. He and his retinue had gone out hunting, winding their way through the treacherous mountain paths. Suddenly, from behind one of the cliffs, there darted a red fox. The entire group gave chase, and their horses spurned the pebbles out from under their hooves, making the lonely ground to ring as it had never rung before. The horses were fast, but the fox was faster; the terrain gave him an advantage, and soon the hunting party had to give up and dropped behind. All but one, that is. The earl rode on still farther, mounted on a beautiful white charger. He was so intent on the chase that he had eyes for nothing else. He did not see me, climbing down the slope with my bare hands and feet, nor did he see something else - something worse - slowly emerge from the cave up the hillside, slowly stretch itself out to its full height, and then slowly, almost sedately, utter a tremendous roar as the horse and its rider swept down the mountain path.

But I had seen it, and I was prepared. The earl was clad only in a light hunting suit; he was prepared for a fox, not for an animal of this size! Well might he reign in his charger, and take off in the other direction as fast as he could, for the beast was larger than any I had seen before, it was stronger than the rock with which it was surrounded, it was faster than a racing greyhound. It was a massive bear! The white charger again pressed forward, again the rocks spurted out from under him, again the ground rang with the sound of his hoofs - but there was no helping it. I was only a few feet from the bottom now - I glanced hurriedly round - there was no time to lose! I dropped to the ground and whirled my sling, the sling that had saved me so many times before, round and round. The earl's horse was nearing me now, in a cloud of dust and rock he went flying by, the bear stopped, only for an instant, on seeing a new adversary - he took one small step forward, but I, dashing up, hurled the rock at him with all my might! For one instant he swayed in the air, the next he crashed to the ground, with the stone still in his forehead. The earl had stopped when he saw me, now he looked at me in amazement, and soon the rest of his company swept round the bend in the mountain path.

Ever since that day I have dwelt with the earl as his son, I know what it is to be poor, and also to be rich. I will do my utmost for the farmers and workers of Mitgardia, I will maintain the interests of the nobles ever in my sight, I will change Mitgardia only for the better! As the bear who fell without a cry, so will fall all the enemies of the great Jarl, as the stone struck him only once, so will no second thrust be needed! And as the enemies without will fall, so will the enemies within, nothing will stop Mitgardia from the greatness for which it is destined! I lay down the gauntlet, and all Mitgardia does with me, to any other candidate who thinks they can do better! Nobles! Peasants! Fellow Mitgardians, guildsmen all! Hear me! Only the best man is good enough for Mitgardia, only the strongest, only the most capable, can ever hope to lead it aright! Vote Mich Maxersine - Mitgardia's Mastermind!

Support me? Show it in your signature! Be sure all Historica gets the word!

Since that "mittenlander" became our prime minister, Mitgardia isn't the grand Guild it once was. Look where he took us with his actions. No more money for our defences and lowering taxes. Well, we all have seen that lowering taxes was nothing more than an illusion.

The lack of defenses gave the elemental creatures the advantage to move fast from village to village plundering and destroying all. The evil forces are controlling a lot of regions nowadays. Valholl, Ondylion en just a handfull cities are still in Mitgardian hands. But for how long. Even those cities are not as prepared as they once were, because the Jarl ordered people they hide in the Mystical domains.

This sounds like we really need to change things so give your vote to me: Besdarc Menteno

8203434158_692fe912ce_z.jpg

Only a few know of my existence so let me introduce myself. My forefathers came from Valyrio hundreds of years ago. One of Elon's ancestors saved my grand-grand-grand-father when he was robbed. Since then he swore to protect the house of Chorian with his life. Since then me and my ancestors became the Acirhon, Chorians personal elite guards. As I am the leader of the Acirhon I'm always laying low. But now it's time to change that. Mitgardia needs change!

And who can manage that better than me. Thanks to the Acirhon the Chorians are safe as are Ondylion and its villages. I also personally, took care of those Avalonian Elves who tried to come now we are weaker than before. I'm also proud to be engaged to Kennjae, the youngest daughter of Elon. So as you can see my hart beats for Mitgardia and I will make Mitgardia strong again.

8254179491_692e211483_z.jpg

This is what I will do:

-Ministry for Defenses: I will set up a special ministry for defenses. So that our borders are as well protected as the strong walls of Ondylion. There will be more border patrols and garrisons along the borders and roads. Beacons will be all across Mitgardia not only from Ondylion to Valholl. This way we can act fast and strike hard. You think it's not important? Look around you, nothing more is needed now.

-Social Security: I will also give Mitgardia a system that provides everyone to live in health. Not less taxes just a better system. So that the poor have more money to spend on food and clothing and the ritch do not spill that much on to much clothing and food that is just making them fat. The taxes for rich people will be max 55% of their income, starting by people who own two acres. No higher because a famous Mitgardian once said: "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."

Ofcourse I have a lot more of ideas wich are good for Mitgardia. But to build up Mitgardia when we have defeated the dark forces, these points are the most important ones! So vote Besdarc Monteno!

Kendrick Baylor has lived in Mitgardian for decades and he knows what Mitgardia needs.

With all the elemental attacks and turmoil from Revolword trying to take the throne many Mitgardian's homes have been destroyed, Kendrick would give more funding to the E.R.T. (Elemental Response Team). Where would the funding come from? Kendrick will also change Mitgardia's foreign trade policy making it easier to import and export goods which will bring more commerce into Mitgardia generating more revenue to fund the E.R.T. and keep the Mitgardian Army strong.

"A vote for Kendrick Baylor is a vote for the future"

Clothes of an avalonian? I just see a square with a red x. A suspicious canidate indeed, even my browser doesn't like him! :laugh: (JK - though I really can't see anything and you probably know who I support... though Ecc's is really good. But I'd rather a wise old man than a assasin... :laugh: ...well, it was the first thing that poped into my mind when I saw him on your photostream!)

Dear Mitgardians,

now once again I question you, what have the others done the past year?

I, Eric Grimmson, am one of the most active Mitgardian Politicians, someone who does, not someone who talks

sscn0702.jpg

So while others vanished just after their eclection, I took the defeat as a man, stuck around and worked for the benefit of all Mitgardians. I took over the urban planning committee and made sure to pacify the rowdiest areas of Valholl

sscn0856.jpg

I was part of the team around Steen Larsson which was in charge of restoring the Valholl city wall and, as reserve officer, returned to military service and defended the save haven around the black rock temple from elemental terror:

dscn2022.jpg

When I ran for office the last time

I wanted to get our military ready - what did Mittenlander do? Lower taxes to deprive our forces of the nessecary funds to protect us!

I wanted to get rid of the scum - what did Mittenlander do? He allowed the scum to collect in the areas around the bridge, breaking the law numerous times!

dscn1078.jpg

I wanted our military to be alert - what did Mittenlander do? He allowed Orcs on the city wall!

dscn1845.jpg

So Mitgardians, if you are sick of this neoliberal Agenda destroying our precious country, and if doub't people that have never been seen in this country before, vote for

Grimmson the true Mitgardian!

PS: more campaign pictures will be uploaded in the weeks to follow!

PSS: Say no to Drow!
