Meet the Timelords of New Gallifrey – with Designing Worlds

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we visit one of the best known Dr Who/Timelord roleplay regions of New Gallifrey, which has recently been completely redesigned – with a spectacular new look!

This region houses several timelords’ private Tardise but also the Panopticon, the focal point for the adventures of the Time;lords who, after the Time War, found themselves trapped in Second Life. Time travel adapts rather well to Second Life – but in this episode we’ll be concentrating on New Gallifrey itself. The old Panopticon, which we visited way back in 2008 was destroyed as part of a summerlong storyline. Now the new New Gallifrey has emerged, and it really is stunning.

We are given a guided tour by Sen Pixie, former Lord President of the High Council of New Gallifrey, Kylie Todriya, who in the New Gallifrey multiverse is the Pythia of the Sisterhood of the Jade Dreamers, and also Chancellor of New Gallifrey, and Rowan Thursday, the High Seeress of New Gallifrey and also Sister Dreamweaver to the Pythia. They are also the primary builders of this magnificent edifice, and of the landscape that surrounds it.

Then we are given a tour of the darkly stylish Tardis belonging to David Abbot, aka Deimos, head of the Celestial Invervention Agency – which has a rather unexpected special feature.

It all makes for a great show – don’t miss it!

A challenge from House Scendles

A message has been received by NGPR, purporting to come from Lord Omega of House Scendles

House Scendles

House Scendles

With the High Council soon due to convene I call upon House Scendles to arise from the shadows and take it’s rightful place. Too long you have been in the shadows, forced to work in the dark like outcasts…

No More.
We shall retake our place!
The usurpation of our seat by the CIA shall no longer be suffered!
Once in the shadows, now in the open!
As I am risen so shall be the forgotten House!

Thus commands Lord Omega

Surprising document written by the new Cardinal of House Arcalian

 A document has come to light that has apparently been circulating among some time lords, written by the then Arcalian Ordinal Maltheus – recently elected to Cardinal.
We are endeavouring to establish the veracity of this document.

On re-asserting the constitution. Observations and opinion.

Fellow Lords of time.

For the past span of our recent history, many unusual and unprecedented circumstances have befallen our race and our home world. The near total collapse of our world under the assault of the Abbot and other external threats has necessitated a state of emergency, during which the normal order of our society and government has justifiably been suspended. In the need to make quick and vital decisions for the protection of our race, it became necessary to have a small body of time lords appointed by his Excellency the Lord president, to govern under the aegis of the “inner council”.

While the majority of Time lords are joined in gratitude to those few that have steered the ship of state through these troubled waters, many may now feel the time has come to once again restore normal governance and due process to our Capitol.
It would therefore seem an opportune time to propose a number of measures needed to resume and reassert our civilizations constitution.

First and foremost, while there are still challenges facing us, it can be argued that the immediate threat and emergency has abated. Therefore it would be appropriate to recall the high council at the earliest possible opportunity, with the formal ending of the state of emergency that has allowed governing to take place in their absence.

The Lord president is in essence the leader of the high council, and it is from that body that the power and authority of the president is drawn. It is a constitutional and democratic imperative that the authority of the high council be at the very heart of the leadership of our society, and that the roles and responsibilities of all high offices and councils be once more clearly defined and adhered to. A process of debate and ratification of the defined roles of offices should begin at the high council level. In effect a clarification of the constitution is called for.

The inner council, which traditionally consisted of the lord president, the chancellor and the Castellan, has expanded since our race settled in this universe. In addition to some appointees such as the Coordinator of the CIA and Chancellor Emeritus, it has at times included also the leaders of some, but not all of the Time Lord chapters besides. This expanded council has had the effect of causing the inner council to resemble a select and elite sub group of the high council, and caused it to assume a large part of the legitimate role of the high council itself. This has rendered the high council something of an afterthought in many matters of state, where events can be prearranged in private by the inner council before ever reaching the attention of the colleges of Time Lords to vote upon.

Many may find it unsatisfactory that the cardinal or councilor of one chapter, while not holding any of the above mentioned offices, should be included in the inner council even in a none voting position, while the leadership of another chapter is not. Such inequality gives the impression that some chapters are valued more than others, and that those “lesser” chapters deserve less of a voice in leadership. Neither one may add, would it be sensible for the leaders of all chapters to be included equally on the inner council, as doing so would simply make it effectively another session of the high council, which rather defeats the point.

It would be logical to propose therefor that the inner council should be reduced to no longer include any of the chapter leaders, excepting those holding an office such as Chancellor at the same time, and that those cardinals, Councilors and High seer instead should be present on the high council, as the democratic representatives of their chapter members. Further that the inner council should, barring a state of emergency, adopt a role as an advisory body appointed by the lord president. Outside of a state of emergency, this inner council should not take decisions of state, but submit their recommendations to the High council for debate, amendment, and ratification by the elected leaders of the chapters and the president in council session. This restoration of the authority of the high council would return the leadership of our civilization to the Colleges of Time Lords, and reaffirm the principles of accountability, democracy, and due process to our government.

In closing, I submit that while the rebuilding of the panopticon is nearly complete, and the structures in which the time lord civilization shall reside are almost restored, our society is not only based on physical structures. The bedrock upon which our civilization truly stands is the constitution, a codification of the ideological and ethical ideals which have bound us throughout our history. It is those principles and notions of democracy and due process, which have been chipped away and eroded over recent times, which now require repair and rebuilding every bit as much as the physical structures of our citadel. Unless we act soon to reinstate it, our constitution is in danger of finally crumbling and being lost.

Thank you for your attention and consideration.
Maltheusenarpexia
Cardinal, House Arcalian
