So King Casca has identified Clainin as a council member, recovering in New Haven (on Catskills at least).

I have tried to speak with him. No avail.

MOVING him, though.... crashes the client. Grey letters appear in his place that I cannot read for the grey bed. Interesting!

Bug report filed.

EDIT: "corpse"

For the record, I brought out Haljous for a little rear-kissing roleplay. Hee hee

I kind of like to think of that dude in a weird kind of magical, undead coma.

Functionally a corpse, technically alive.

Hm. I too, have had similar ideas. The only difference is that I've thought of him less in some sort of magical stasis, and more of a natural comatic state. He's there breathing, his body is shattered; but essentially the mind is just not there.

Or, perhaps he is awake and still recovering from his (extensive) injuries, and the game simply doesn't currently allow us to speak with him?

Whatever the case, I am curious what his reactions might be should he awaken. I am sure that he is astute enough to smell a rat; but on the flip side, it was he who suggested to Dupre that he should take up the crown during the Exodus Wars (atleast in the Todd McFarlane comic). Clearly, he is not adverse to the idea of another King or Queen to replace British.

So far all we were told on Sonoma about the royal council was that they are in hiding!!

There's a thread over in the current event forum called Casca.. Hero or Villian?

Would you have time to add your Catskills report about Clainin being identified as a council member? Would be really appreciated =)

Or if there is a council, it is populated by Astaroth, Fauleini, Nosfentor, Melissa, Erik, Sara, Richard, Myxkion, Valvakka, Kealdia, Rivatach, Vaector, and Krysan. :o

I hope Clainin snaps out of it quick enough to give us a little warning...I get a funny feeling he knows something but Casca's "care" is keeping him from helping us.

Maybe Sherry will come rescue him like she did the other two.

Aye, and the freedom front is being led by Sherry!
Any news of Ricardo? I know he was being held prisoner again,
but he is supposed to be Sosaria's greatest rogue...

Clainin was never a member of the Royal Council. He was the Royal Thaumaturgist only.
I think the EM on Catskills saw people calling Clainin a member, and couldn't remember for sure that he wasn't, so responded by commenting on Clainin's health as opposed to directly stating that he was not a member... or perhaps he wanted to make Casca sound more concerned over Clainin's health than over technicalities... not sure.

I got mixed up a few times with questions at that point of the speech to be sure exactly what was going on.

As stated in the BNN story, Farewell to the King on December 19th, 2003:

"In tight formation, the guardsmen made their way south from the City of Compassion, to Britain’s moongate. Before they could enter it and cross facets, they were halted by Clainin, royal mage and member of the ruling council of Britannia. " (emphasis mine)

So, Clainin is indeed an impediment for Casca.. As is Sherry, Aileen....

I had a feeling he was. *Smiles*

I don't remember where I read it (so it may or may not be true); but I've always been under the impression that the Royal Council included Lord British's close friends and advisors, such as Clanin, Shamino, Dupre, and what have you.

Chuckles? Now thats a King I could serve.
