"BlizzardClan, gather for a meeting."
Soft evening had fallen over BlizzardClan and the cold had chilled the sounds of the night creatures that had been abundant earlier in the season. Once there was a decent crowd gathered, Aleksei would begin. "Since we are all gathered here, I want to take a moment to remember our fallen friends who are no longer with us. Why were their lives cut short? Because there are people out there who believe that taking a life is alright and sometimes, living in BlizzardClan, we deserve to die. We, as BlizzardClanners, choose to live with rules on how we treat each other, our allies, our neutrals, and our enemies. Many other groups do not have that and hate us for wanting to live better. They call it arrogance, we call it decency, and then they say that we deserve to die, to be killed, to be captured, to be tortured, because we want to conduct our lives in a good manner?"
"The Shadow Veil leader just announced in his most recent meeting that all BlizzardClanners are to be killed on sight. He told his people to capture, torture, and kill any BlizzardClanner they want, in a war they started because they did not want to punish their own member for wrongfully capturing a neutral. We sought justice, we were met with arrogance and insults and here they are now, targeting our friends and family, saying all of us, young and old, should die because of who were are."
"That ends this week. I'll let them know we're coming, so they can evacuate their elderly and their infirmed and their children, because BlizzardClan does not conduct war from the shadows like terrorists, and because BlizzardClan does not fight those who are unable to defend themselves. Expect a battle this week. We will not let them go unpunished for murder." It was a bold move, but it was also a statement: BlizzardClan was not going to sink to the level of the degenerate scum who lived in the Veil.
// since Aleksei is taking note of those who attend the meeting, only those who show up here by the next part of the meeting are receiving their promotions, if any. I plan on posting again with the next part of the meeting on Thursday or after, so your character has until then to attend.
