"Ard Ri means High One. And it is a title I would be reviving. It has not been used in a long time." I reply. "A very long time. I think...I'm going to try to call a Meeting of the Waters. That's what it's called in River Tongue, but every Kind has a term for it. It's a gathering of all the elders or leaders of every Kind in the Kindred. The Ard Ri is named over them all to discuss and to arbitrate. I could never command all the Kinds, but if I could speak to their leaders, convince them, get them to listen and understand, then they could lead their peoples. And perhaps, in time, things could change. But a Meeting of the Waters hasn't been called since before my Grandmother's great Grandmother was born. I have no idea what will happen."

" If it is anything like other politics, a lot of arguing and a lot of bickering and people making decisions only to spite their neighbor despite that it is cutting off their nose to spite their face" my lip turns up "sorry I hate politics. there are battlefields that are cleaner then a politician's tongue" then at Liv's look "you are a bard that isn't a politician."

"I do not know what a politician is but I do know that if you are going to lead a people then they must either fear you or believe that you have the answers they seek." I look to Liv. "The Emperor is a great man but he does not command armies. Our Shogun commands armies in his stead so that he may focus on spiritual matters. Before the west came, the Shogun commanded fear in order to rule; we obeyed. When the west came the Emperor believed they had all the answers; so he obeyed."

"sadly that isn't the only way to rule, some ruled by money also," I shrug "Or by earning renown like our songstress' sister is want to do and as my and Kaija's father did "and like Liv has started to do weather she wants to our not." Kaija elbows me. "What!" All i get is that somewhat infuriating smirk"

I nod slowly. "Half sister. And I believe I ought to speak with her. She has a gift much like mine. Having another who could help me do the work of getting the elders to really listen could make the difference. I'll need every edge I can get going into this."

"Seems to me, from all I've seen and heard of her, she's more likely to bite and poison then help," Lily grumbles in an undertone.

I shrug. "You may be right. But what can I do but try?"

"she is an angry one, but smart. nearly beat me in chess" I chuckle "If you can get her to listen then she can help but given her desires running so far opposite to yours I am not sure how well that would go" then glancing at Lily "Yes there is a chance of just that" I say slowly " and try not to do it alone"

"I'm not sure she'd take well to anyone else being there. Whoever comes along will need to keep well out of sight." I glance from Liam to Djhuety, and then to Lily. "Sori, don't start, you're not coming till you can walk on your own limbs." I state without much more than a look in her direction. I know she's got her mouth open to volunteer without looking.

"you met her on the way when i was supposed to set up a safe meeting Liv, allow me to keep my word." I my tone is bordering on formal for once not a hint of either monotone or of my normal smirk. "I would appreciate it"

I nod thoughtfully. "Well enough. Just don't get protective. I can handle myself a little, you know."

I quirk a brow at the statement " I will keep that in mind but if the need becomes apparent I will make sure you get back to your beloved" I shrug "I owe both you at least that and don't argue" then heading to the door I grab my coat "No time like the present to get started, Be back with the information as soon as i can" and out into the nightside I go.
