The Council of Nine has recently opened the position of World Assembly Secretary to be tasked with recruiting and assisting aspiring WA authors, providing information to Islanders about WA proposals, and conducting international outreach for WA proposals. Markanite has named Sargon Reman our inaugural WA Secretary and he has named Mingulay Isle as the inaugural Deputy WA Secretary. Congratulations to them both! We're excited to see what this new office will do.

Hakke: Oh... I've laughed a lot of times when reading funny posts and responses in Taco Island threads.
One thing that has been very frustrating is explaining to others the concept of vampires and how a cross and holy water isn't gonna help fending off vampires. Another thing that has been frustrating is explaining to my fellow Islanders that I'm a vampire and not something else. I'm not gonna mention what something else I'm talking about. It's actually a taboo subject.

Thanks for reading! Until next month, your 10KI Update staff Senator HumanSanity and Deputy Senator THX1138​
