[EVENT] Diplomacy

The Summerlands are full of dangers and delights just outside the range of the Weyr itself. What can be found in these areas?

[EVENT] Diplomacy

No one can agree to remove the pirates, so it looks like our criminally inclined neighbors are here to stay. You've been drafted to go down to the pirates' beach and try to talk them into being a little less...pirate-y. Good luck!

Kaladin still found it difficult to believe that Semaca Weyr could be *this* short-sighted. Sure, nobody seemed to want to annoy the pirates, but that didn't mean that simply letting them stay was, in fact, the correct idea. Ore even a remotely good one. In fact, he was quite convinced that it was an *extremely* bad idea. On par with just telling the Weyrfolk that pillaging and murdering was perfectly fine, go ransack some northern Hold and bring back rare spices!

Well, he was going to put a stop to this, if no one else would. He would make sure these pirates were made aware of just how unwelcome they really were. It took him longer to reach the beach than a rider might have, but at least he was able to get there. Vella might have words for him about venturing beyond the walls, but this was more important.

At last, he stood on the sandy shore, the wind tugging at his loosely restrained curly hair, shirt sticking to him with sweat as he glared at the nearest pirate.

"I need to speak with your leader."

The pirates have certainly made themselves at home. The fleets have docked, there's a few shoreline caves carved out with their little pseudo-hold, and hey, there's an entire port here.

So, the nearest pirate gave Kaladin a look, frowning.

"An emissary from the Weyr, clearly," Kaladin replied, pointing at his knots. Was it really that difficult to look at what was incredibly obvious?

Not sent by the Weyr though, only from it. So far as he could tell, none of the leadership actually agreed with his ideas about kicking the pirates out. It shouldn't have surprised him. They were all corrupt to start with, and half of them probably had criminal backgrounds themselves.

The group all looks at each other, chuckling to themselves. Obviously they do not regard Kaladin as much of anything, let alone an emissary. It's very clear there is no respect for him there, or for the weyr itself it seems. One of them shakes his head.

"Sure you are, kid. Do yourself a favor and run back home."

Kaladin glared back at the pirate. "First, I'm not a child. Second, while nobody expects much of criminals, if you're going to pretend to be something else, you should learn to recognize a Weyr's knots. Third, I am here from the Weyr, here to speak to you about your behavior and presence in this region."

He would restrain himself and be at least vaguely diplomatic. For the time being.

Cornelia had been tied up in a meeting with some of Chopin Squad, and arrived to the beach a little later than she'd hoped. Not a great start, all told.

To make matters worse, the infamous now-ex-Candidate who'd repeatedly disrespected Semaca's only gold was acting on her behalf. Without permission. Cornelia was a practical sort, but she still sometimes thanked Faranth that Nebulaeth was not her grandmother.

"Go back to Semaca. You will be dealt with later." Cornelia had better things to do than chastise Kaladin right now. Like deal with the forsking pirates that were doing their business on her shores.

"I am Cornelia of Garnet Guiloth, Weyrleader of Semaca. We are willing to open diplomatic negotiations." Cornelia's main goal right now was to stop the pirates from draining time and resources. Something mutually beneficial could be decided after that.

The pirates didn't seem to care about Kaladin's offended pride, nor were they particularly impressed by Cornelia. But she DID have a dragon, and carried significantly more weight than Kaladin's... whatever.

The crowd parted, and a rather strapping woman with ice-cold eyes dressed in black appeared.

"And what are you doing here? We've done nothin' wrong, and none of you were particularly interested in us before." She said, folding her arms.

Kaladin crossed his arms, looking back at Cornelia, utterly undaunted. He wasn't going to be budged, not for anything.

"No, I'm going nowhere. You don't speak for me. You didn't ask the Weyrfolk for our opinions before deciding that diplomacy with known criminals was an acceptable option. We do not exist to be ignored by you simply because you have a dragon and we do not. I have concerns for our safety and livelihoods, as well as retribution from other Weyrs when they learn that we're harboring and treating with, and do I need to state this again, known criminals."

He stared back down at the pirate woman, who seemed to be in the lying sort of mood.

"We know where you get your goods, we aren't as stupid as you seem to think we are. And further, some of us were interested in you, or rather in seeing you removed from our shores, but our concerns went..." He gestured over at Cornelia. "Unheard."

"I don't think starting with diplomacy is a poor idea."

Shouta wasn't too keen on the pirates either, but their leader was right. So far they hadn't done anything to warrant the distrust besides being, well... pirates. If they were sticking around, it might be easier not to start off on the wrong foot. Duoth seemed content to watch them, picturesque draconic silence as he regarded the pirates.

Don't know why here. Not our place. Am bored and hungry. Daisk complained, not keen on going after these smelly pirates. But it was a lot nicer to be out on the warm sands and such. And besides, Daiya had... ideas.

He was here, on paper, as added muscle. Dragons were great, but whers might be needed to fill in the gaps in the ranks. And besides, Daiya was looking to try and TALK to these nice folks once everyone had settled and stopped trying to tear into one another.

Perhaps he could go back to his old ways of making a little extra on the side...?

He'd let the Weyrleader speak for now, as she was clearly a lot more qualified to do so. He was here to look and act tough, and Daisk was here to chase down anyone the dragons didn't happen to get.

The woman looked at Kaladin, and then at the gathering crowd. She didn't look particularly intimidated by him, in fact she looked bored by his posturing. And... everything, really. She didn't really look like this would be a great time to bother her, but here they were.

"Last I checked, you weren't a hold guard, nor are you anyone with proper authority. We're more than happy to piss off and leave you all without supplies, among other things, if you're such an expert. Otherwise, leave. Let the grown-ups talk." She said to Kaladin, instantly turning her attention elsewhere, to Cornelia.

Kaladin spoke before Cornelia could tell him to shut up, and she resisted the urge to put her face in her hands.

"I conferred with the rest of the Weyr Council, who speak for all of Semaca, and we do wish to open diplomatic negotiations as a first course of action." Forgive me for not interviewing your dimglow self personally, she did not add.

Oh, two more interlopers. At least they weren't nearly as annoying. Still, she did have diplomacy to do.

"We are, of course, grateful for the supplies you have provided us in this time of need. However, we cannot overlook how you obtained said supplies. Some of the Weyrs and Holds of the North have already submitted complaints to us about your activities. As we wish to maintain good relations with them as well as you, we propose that you work with existing trade routes in the North. I am happy to help facilitate meetings between you and the appropriate Northern leaders."
