Meetings were not something that Ima liked to miss, whether it be her holding them, or if it was someone else doing them. She wanted them to be on time, and she wanted them to have a schedule, whether it be weekly or bi-weekly, but it seemed as though she was failing in those aspects. Archi had done well with meetings, though not all of them had been on time, there was always one to look forward to within a week or two, whereas Ima's meetings had seemed uncertain as to if there would be one. Well, there was now, and there was a lot of stuff that Ima had to get through in this one. Some things would be hard to announce, but she would get over it. She could manage, as it was all for the best of the clan. "Riftians!" The female would call from where she stood on the bottom floor of the lighthouse, making her way up a few steps so that she was taller than those who would be on the floor, so that she could be seen and heard better. "Gather to the floor for a much needed meeting." Ima would wait a few moments, watching those that gathered, waiting for more to come before she would continue on.
"First of all, I would like to extend a warm welcome to those who have joined recently. I'm glad to see new faces around, and hope that the Rift goes above your expectations of our clan, and that you wish to stay with us for as long as time lets you." Of course, she wished for many to gather to the Rift, many to come to the place they all called home in order to make their home here. Though there was not unlimited room in the Lighthouse, there was also the small village a little further away, and though that wasn't an ideal place for a bunch of animals to live, so far away from the meeting place and main camp, with a little cleaning and clearing away some foilage, it could make a good place to commute to and eventually connect communications. That would be a project for another day, however.
Thinking, she would check of her mental list before opening her maw to continue. "There have been a few things that we have been invited to, of which I have accepted. The Colour Command's leader has died, and they have invited us to Kieran's funeral. None have to go if they did not know him, though if you do wish to go to pay your respects, you are more than welcome to." Ima, personally did not know him too well, and had only met him once when she had become leader herself, but he had seemed nice and respectable. "Second, the Overgrowth has invited us to a campout event. They are a close ally of ours, and a former home of mine, so if anyone is willing to go there, it would be nice. They are a lovely bunch of animals." She was quite fond of all of them really. "And lastly, there is an event hub that Colour Command has invited us to as well. Get to know their territory and our allies and stuff like that."
A pause would come from the female, letting her words sink in before once more her maw opened and sound came out, "There will be more announcements soon."
