Re: Choose Your Own Veridis

"A waste of perfectly good coin! These metropoletanos take enough from us as it is and now you'd have us bending over backwards to lick their boots?" José Maria Garcia Alvaréz del Mano slowly shook his head, "No, let them sulk around the whore houses in their pretty boats if they wish...

Re: Choose Your Own Veridis

José Maria Garcia Alvaréz del Mano's craggy, weather-worn face is a stern mask as he listens to his fellow council members. Many of his ranch hands are natives, though he's not heard much in the way of complaints from them, certainly nothing approaching this- he treats them well enough as it is. Sti...
