Gartan’s Book – 7/14/10

Got another 7 pages and 2 scenes knocked out tonight.

My protag went to the Governor for help with the law and was told that she had no case.   (She didn’t get to see the Antag giving a sizable donation to the Governor to renovate the docks.)

  1. I don’t know, TPN–do you think anyone will believe the part about the Governor being corrupt? Okay, where is the ROFL icon?
    Making good progress, you are.

    Ah, but that’s it. It’s not a pure, stereotypical case of corruption. The project to renovate the docks is just a good business deal that helps the community. Of course, it builds good will but the move itself isn’t putting anything directly into the Governor’s pockets.

    And the Governor’s arguments to my heroine about why the law would never prosecute her case are totally valid. After all, the theft was over 200 years before and in a foreign land that they don’t have any sort of legal agreements with. They have a concept of a statute of limitations in this culture.

    So, sure, the Governor doesn’t want to do anything to jeopardize his relationship with the antagonist but he’s not just making stuff up. He’s in a position where he’s totally justified in what he’s doing.

    I just wanted that hint of impropriety and unfairness.
