The time has come to vote for the next Mayor of Stormreach.

Harbormaster Zin

http://images.quickblogcast.com/82681-72328/Zin1.png

Harbormaster Zin currently resides in the Harbor and works to keep tabs on the Waterworks as a municipal administrator. Running on a platform of "He knows the business!", Zin may have the backing of the Coin Lords. He supports increased military might (more guards!), cleaning up the city and training new players to deal with the perils of Stormreach.

He's also been in a tough campaign fight with his rival Lord Gerald Goodblade. Not the best public speaker, but earnest to a fault, Zin has been known to tout his qualifications for the job.

"Lord" Gerald Goodblade

http://images.quickblogcast.com/82681-72328/Gerald1.png

"Lord" Gerald Goodblade is currently residing outside of the city's walls following a last-minute campaign scandal. He claims that "goons" of Harbormaster Zin have threatened his safety. He's also quite concerned about the abilities of Mindflayer Fred to sway voters...his opponents point to some allegedly damaging screenshots involving him and Charlotte the Scarlett as the main reason for his recent disappearance.

Goodblade, known to many as one of the first people they encounter in Stormreach, has been working to get people started on their questing lifestyle through the acquisition of ancient daggers. He's also received criticism for the quality of his so-called "Swords of Tesyus".

His campaign platform includes better health care for the aged, increased guild support and moderate change to the city. His slogan, "Why do Better when you can do Good", remains a mystery to this day.

Nat Gann

http://images.quickblogcast.com/82681-72328/NatGann.png

Nat Gann is another current mayoral candidate who no longer resides within the city walls of Stormreach. His campaign has seen increased support from people who remember his valiant efforts to keep people entertained even as portals of Shavarath began opening throughout the Marketplace. He survived the attack, but just barely, and could be seen writhing on the ground in pain with a broken leg for months until he disappeared.

As Gann tells it, he was placed on a stretcher by unknown people and shuttled outside of the city's walls. Since then, he has experienced a difficult life, fighting displacer beasts, intellect devourers, goblins and other monsters that have been eradicated from the city. He just wants back in, and being mayor would be a great way for him to once again be useful. He promises to stay out of the way...

Gann claims to have a "very wordy" Four Point Plan. He also supports free travel to Meridia and Beyond, increased player events and "wants to tax your pants off!"

His slogan is "Nat Gann for Every Man!"

Skrapps

http://images.quickblogcast.com/82681-72328/Skrapps1.png

Skrapps knows all about combat. This feisty and somewhat insane Kobold can be seen consistently residing in the Wayward Lobster, guiding people to "Fight! Fight PvP! PvP Forever! Fight! Fight! Fight! Dizafrabadoo!"

Freakishly crazy and cold-blooded, this perennial candidate is running on a few ideas:

- Fight! PvP Forever!
- PvP Everywhere!
- Bite Jerry's Face!

Jester of the Festivault

http://images.quickblogcast.com/82681-72328/JesterWhole.png

This somewhat creepy candidate believes in giving you candy. He loves you. Very, very much....

Known for taking your coins for twigs and coal, the Jester has the ability to be in three places at once, something he frequently touts as a good reason to vote for him for mayor. He also has a habit of renaming his holiday and generally can only be seen during a certain time of the year.

The Jester is running on a platform of free dental care for all. Free dental care and candy. Sweet, sweet candy. Candy for you. You love candy, don't you? He loves you, you know....

Mindflayer Fred

http://images.quickblogcast.com/82681-72328/Fredbaby.png

Mindflayer Fred is a long-time resident of House Jorasco and can be seen living under a slab of rock. Somewhat dark and mysterious, Fred has become "the go-to" resident for feat respects. A consummate businessman who seized on a service not being met to ensure his continued survival, Fred has managed to avoid being killed by citizens who otherwise tend to greet Mindflayers with very sharp swords....

Fred is running on a platform of major change to the city. His "reign" would include support for the powerful, destruction of the city's enemies and more feats. He knows what you want and is not afraid to tap into your mind.

His support has grown significantly since he announced his candidacy, particularly among those he has "helped" see why he should become mayor.

###

So, the vote will remain open until Friday, November 14th, 2008 at 6pm Eastern time! The vote takes place both here and on DDO-Europe.com. Let's hear who you think should be mayor!

Jerry

Had to vote for Skrapps.
The rest annoy me no end. Lord Goodblades is a charlatan and a thief. Harbourmaster Zin has a dagger in his hand, which equals tinfoil hat wearing paranoid schizo. Fred takes all my money. Nat Gann annoys the absolute **** out of me...I was glad to see him on his arse in the marketplace and glad hes disappeared. The Jester reminds me of a certain presidential candidate, too angry for my tastes...so Skrapps it is.

Ironically, the underdog catching up is Nat Gann, effectively putting Fred back in his place to sulking underneath the populace of Stormreach! ;)

Nat Gann's never had to change for any mod! Nat Gann's got the fortitude and dexterity to soldier on for Stormreach. Nat Gann's the Rock of Stormreach.

Nat Gann's the People's Champ! Can you smell that? Can you smell what the Stormreach Rock's been cook'n?

Smells like unyielding victory. Victory to Nat Gann -- for every man!

Firstly, thanks to the Devs for allowing Jerry to start up this poll!

Secondly, how does my main man "H"-to-the-"Z" get his name misspelled? Jerry. It's "Zin", not "Zinn". People are probably getting confused by this grievous error and are mistakenly voting for Pat Buchanan instead of Zin. Sigh. Recount! Recount! Unfair to the masses. Crucial votes are being lost here. This is a political mockery! How would you like it if ,instead of Jerry Snook, people called you Superfly Jimmy Snuka? This misspelling AND THIS ALONE will no doubt cost Zin the election. :eek:

Oh and you mispelled "Festivult" too, but nobody cares.

(Memnir? No more cool posters? Your boy is winning.)

1. He had to change his pants after I kicked his pole out from under him.
2. He had to change his dialogue when he busted his leg and couldn't get up (hope he had Cleric-Alert jewelry).
3. He had to change his zip code when Tag Hardcastle took his spot and started doing handstands.

Feh!!! waves a hand at you in dismissal :mad:

1. That was all your doing, you freely admit it!
2. You could have healed him!
3. Tag's under Zin's payroll, much like a certain dwarven cleric that kicks poles out from under the common folk!

Mindflayer Fred? MINDFLAYER FRED? What sort of dirty kobold, sewer sludging spin is THIS! Empath is a much more appropriate term. Shame, Shame on the forces of Zin, using inflammatory rhetoric such as Mindflayer. And even this doesn't stop the tentacled juggernaut. He's winning!

Actually, thanks to you and Lessah for coming up with this idea in the first place! :)

I've fixed Zinn's, um, I mean Zin's name in the post, but I couldn't seem to edit the poll. So, the "ballot error" remains. That's what I get for posting a poll on a Monday morning. I've actually been spelling this wrong for weeks! The bad spellings got in my head and I've never been able to get them out.

Oh, and Zin's election will rise and fall on his platform. Which is raised above the rest of the Harbor, so that's a plus...

Lets see here...

I've seen Zin eating steak while giving me my Writ of Commendation. Nope!

"Lord" Gerald Goodblade had a minotaur leg in that desk of his for the times he needed to prove his lordliness with an instant banquet. Nope!

The Jester of the Festavult was passing out cow-shaped cookies to the Stormreach Youth, teaching them the value of cow slaughter at a tender age. Nope!

Skrapps bites both Jerry's face and cows. Nope!

I once saw Nat Gann beat a dead cow with that stick of his. Nope!

Mindflayer Fred screws with the minds of humans and dwarves alike, but leaves the cows alone. Perfectly acceptable! :D

My Vote:

NO Kobolds!! Ever since my first entry into Durk's and hearing "Kobolds Never Forget, Kobolds always Hate You", I've made it my personal business to kill them all.

I'm GLAD Nat got smashed in the Tent Destruction, and had wished for a long time he'd fall and break his neck.

Zin and Goodblade make you work for their favor, so they will never get the job done.

The Jester? He's around for a couple weeks every year! Forget That!

Fred? No one's going to touch my Brain.

So my write in vote: Captain Killmarten. For 20gp he gives you entry into the Market. A little payola and Stormreach is yours for the taking.

Killmarten for Mayor!!

Behold! Corruption slinking it's way into the polls! Such is the nature, I suppose, but seriously. Fred is clearly the best choice. Not only has he helped me out numerous times, albeit for a price, he has never made a single attempt to eat my brain. And look at that face! So charming, so charismatic!

Having moved to Stormreach about two and a half years ago I haven't completely familiarized myself with the local election laws/processes. However it seems to me that being a resident of Ebberon would be a primary requirement of any candidate, on any continent of Ebberon.

Lets put Fred's questionable appetite to the side for one moment and ask ourselves this: Do we really want someone from Xoriat as a mayor of Stormreach? I've personally found that all my encounters with creatures from Xoriat to be quite unpleasant and now, as a rule, tend to avoid them at all costs.

Lets not forget that Fred, who lives quietly in the shadows of the House Jorasco Enclave, appeared after one of the largest Xoriat invasions and was then perfectly positioned to oversee another invasion into our fair plane of existence.

Do we really need more help from Fred?
