Senator Marcus Aurelius Scipion (Red demes):

I do not think it would be a good idea to increase taxes to the Exarchates. We already have more than enough enemies and the treasury is growing again.

Senator Philaretos Mandromenos (Red Demes):

*As the silence beset the Senate, Mandromenos finally could turn his attention to the message from Columbo*

Well, Well. Trying to play me against another I see... Two snakes seeking to bite the others throat. Very well, perhaps I should allow them to play their little games.

*He begins to write two letters, one to each senator to be delivered to them after the voting is over*

To the esteemed Speaker of the Blues
Fear not the honeyed words of our friend. As a Senator I am accustomed to the lesser aristoi attempting to get unearned favors from me. I will not be so easily mislead.

However, I understand that it would be folly to not consider the arrangement you proposed. To aid in the bond we wish to form, I would like to make an arrangement myself. If I remember correctly, your family is skilled in the art of trade and merchanting. I happen to represent a large collective of craftsmens and business owners in the archonate of Morea. While business is going well, I am afraid that the Plague and the Riots managed to kill many of our customers. Naturally, this will not do. If you would use your contacts among the traders and merchants of the Imperium to find buyers for my quality goods, I am sure that I will be able to compensate you in both material goods and other manners. Meet me in my residence in the city tonight so we can discuss this matter and others further.

Your hopeful partner
Sen. P. Mandromenos

To my friend Desmetri,

I would like to discuss the state of our Red Demes further, just you and me. Perhaps we can make an arrangement that will prove beneficial for the Senate and the Imperium.

Meet me at noon in my residence in the City in two days.

Your hopeful ally,
Sen. P. Mandromenos

{{I am not your pawn, I am a player in this little game, and I shall benefit from it.}}

Leon Taurinus (Red Demes)

"You fools. The Horde's supporters are roaming freely along our northern territories! Taurica is on the verge of being lost, the Horde is looking to invade Thracia! And you all are too afraid of displeasing the Exarchates of distant Africa. If they expect our protection we must demand that they help us to support the army to crush the rebels! We are faced with many foes within and without and we must find more funds for the army to deal with this problem!
I beg you, do not hand over so many loyal and ancient provinces of the Imperium to the enemy to please our distant colonies!"

Senator Lazaros II. Melissenos (White)

Senator Taurinus, until a few years ago, these „distant colonies“ were seen as ancient core lands of the Imperium. Agyptus in particular was roman even in ancient times and an it's an important part too, the corn chamber of the mediterranean. We should be careful that these lands are not lost forever just because we make a hasty decision.

Senator Decius Pylaeus (Faction Speaker of the White Demes)

*To the Senate*

I have to agree with my fellow senators that also support not taxing the exarchates further. Our administrative ressources are needed elsewhere. For instance, they me be useful in the rebuilding of the queen of cities. The jewel of the world is in a shameful state right now. If we were to bring the powerful Italians, who are on the brink of rebellion and who have apparently forgotten what it means to be truly Roman, to the city, then what would happen?

They would see the weakness that plagues us. They would know that our ressourced are focussed inwards. Hearing about a rebellion is one thing, seeing its effects with own eyes is different. We shall not present such an opportunity to them. Let us not invite them to the Synod or the trial.

The Imperium has rebels rampaging from Taurica to Agyptus and the Imperial army needs to recieve all the funds we can muster to help them. The loyal and true Romans in the Exarchates will understand and be happy to support the Imperium because helping the army will help them as well for we are all Romans!
Letting rebels ravage the Imperium because we're afraid of possible rebels in the future, that is Madness and would border on treason!"

{{Wow that's a lot of rebels. Maybe we could make some federati provinces of Mongols and hire the rebels to serve in the army. or we could find the Mongol Bishop and hope he rolls a 20 on his diplomacy to convince them all the join us.}}

"I support calling a Synod to deal with this matter without resorting to bloodshed. We need to gather the Bishops, bring the Italian nobles, the Angelodouloi all to the Synod and condemn their teachings and either let them recant or imprison them. I'll leave the details of the Synod to the Bishops, but what I am certain of is that we must avoid any chance for the heretics to raise rebellions in Italia or anywhere else so that the army can go back to fighting barbarians instead of the Imperium's own citizens!
Surely any true Roman would agree on such a goal."
