Geardirector Posted January 26 Share Posted January 26 OOC: 12-hour rule IC: Akiri Nuparu (Onu-Koro) The day had started with Onu-Koro's citizens awakening to finding fliers posted at street signs, bulletins in the newspaper and even the occasional Ussalry member with some sound-based power making their voice heard in some of the large public spaces of the Koro. The marketplace, the plaza near to Late Turaga Whenua's hut and so on. The message was the same through every venue: Akiri Nuparu had an important announcement for later that day. Nuparu had been mulling over how to break the news he'd recieved from Tarnok for some time. The Ussalmatoran was of course right that it could not be kept secret for long, if at all. Nuparu didn't know much about how informed his fellow Akiri were, but he calculated a very high likelihood of the news already beginning to spread somewhat at this stage. There was no point in delaying the inevitable. He tapped apprehensively the microphone he'd had prepared for this occasion. He was standing on a podium on a raised platform, but his voice could carry much further with this to amplify it. He and his team had made some very great strides with the microphones they had supplied to Ko-Koro back before its siege and capture. He would have to ask their new Akiri if they were interested in an upgrade at some point... His train of thought was interrupted by the piercing whine of the microphone, and Nuparu remembered what he was actually here for. "Citizens. I don't want to take up too much of your time, but I'm glad to see so many turned up today. I trust you can bring this news along to any who miss this today." He swallowed. He suspected he had already made some people in the crowd a little on edge just by virtue of assigning this casual responsibility. They would soon understand. "I won't mince words, everyone. I have learned recently that the Makuta has returned" Now the crowd gave him a real reaction: silence. Absolute, total silence for a few moments, which then degenerated into a buzz of voices and cries and shouts and whatever else one could wish to describe as everyone started talking at once. The Makuta was back? Did he really say that? What's going to happen now? "I know these are grave news", Nuparu spoke up, and waited for the crowd to quiet down again, "We never hoped this day would come, but I want to offer some encouragement" The sea of attentive faces before him gave him some strength back in his voice as he continued. "I say look at us. As our old enemy returns, we are stronger than ever. We are wealthier, more populous, potential allies arrive from beyond the sea. Ko-Koro has been liberated. This island is our home, and we defended it once, we'll do so again" Nuparu neglected to add some endcap in the way of saying 'thank you' or invoking the Prosperity rhetoric he'd been adopting recently. It felt like his statement spoke for itself. The crowd gave him a loud cheer, and Nuparu felt satisfied he'd done about as well as he could have. Onu-Koro, at least, was going to face the future. 2 Quote BZPRPG Profiles Nuparu-Ferron-Mar-Zelvin-Wiremu-Farzan-Mako-Krex-Tamachan-??? Akiri Nuparu Posts: 1. 2. ...
