Hear me wayward and lost lambs of the galaxy! Rejoice, for the divine benevolence of the Lazax has returned to guide and safeguard you once more!

I am Vira nal Ziyd, the Herald of Ibna vel Syd, Emperor Immortalus, heir to Salai Sai Corian, All-Father, Archon of Thalnos, Shepherd of the Thousand Suns, may he rule eternal.

Today I declare the end of the Age of Dusk. Long have you suffered in depravity, your societies a barren ruin of their former glory, struggling in the shadows as of your divine penance for the Great Scourge. Your Great Emperor, your All-Father, sees the suffering of his children and absolves you of the crimes of your forefathers. Your days of suffering are over. The All-Father embraces all of you, and with the benevolence of the Lazax you shall be uplifted once more to your former greatness within our majestic empire.

Generosity to the willing. Fairness to the fair. Desolation to the corrupt.





STRATEGIC ACTION: POLITICS

>> I become the Speaker

"Hello, is this thing on? Reggie, can you help mum ou-- oooh, I see a flashing light. I think it works. Hello there. I am Jo from Cobham. I do not have a card, do I need a card? Do you need a card, mister alien?
Reggie pointed out the advert, he did. Reggie's me oldest son, not not my dear departed Reginald, you see, we named him after Reginald. He was me husband. So proud he was when I said we name Reggie after him, Reginald was. Where was I? Oh yes. Reggie, he pointed out the advert. Mum, he says, you just quit the choir, he says. You need something to do, he says. Choir wasn't the same anyway since mrs. Nelson died, oh that was a terrible affair. Poor thing. Slipped in the shower. I only use the bath. Where was I? Oh yes, the job. Mum, he says, Reggie says, this is really your cup of tea. Such a nice boy, he thinks of his mama. So how? I says. I stopped sending G-mails, you see. There was this Ydrassil gentleman who was really a tribal prince, like in the stories, and he needed money to get 'is swamp back and he would pay me back and send some really nice swamp stuff my way. Nat'rally, I sent him my pension. Never 'eard a thing. Charlie, that's Charlene, me youngest, she said it was scam, she said, but I think he drowned, the prince. Anyway, I called the ministry. There was a phone number, in the ad, I mean. So I called the ministry and they put me through to this really nice man and he says I got the job. Didn't need to know any partic'lars, he said, just be nice. I said that is good, I says, because I don't know any part'culars. Reggie says, ask the man if you need to travel, ma. Space is big. I have some pain in me back, you see. Never can go more than two stops on the grav-rail, me. So I ask him do I need to travel? But the nice man said no, you can work from home, he said. Everything arranged, he says. Mrs. Jo, he says, it will be all right, says he. Doesn't matter that you talk a bit loud and do not see so well, he says. With some of these aliens that makes you diplomatic, he says. Such a nice man. Oh, is it already that late? It is time for tea. I never miss tea. For seventy-six years, I have tea at 12. My Reginald, he says, Jo always has tea at twelve. Can put the time on it when the kettle sings, he says. Reginald passed away seventeen years ago, my dear husband. Didn't miss a day of tea since his pension. Good man he was, Reginald. Ooh, that;s the kettle. Goodbye mister alien, until next time."
