Re: Choose Your Own Veridis

Raul puffs on his cigar and looks up from the latest edition of the local paper.

Re: Choose Your Own Veridis

“They must be given the proper respects!,” Raul states forcefully. “Let us throw a grand ball for our honored guests, show them that we are honorable gentlemen as any in their metropoles, remind them of the wisdom of our present arrangement.

Re: Choose Your Own Veridis

Raul nods serenely as his associates speak; for once, they seem to have some sense about them. “I believe we are all in agreement, as am I, that we ought to hear what this man has to say.

Re: Choose Your Own Veridis

Raul Garcia Alvarez sipped from his drink as he heard the others speak their minds; brash and haughty, most of them, but what else was new.

Re: Embrea 101: War, Peace, and Trade
