Sub 3: East Faction

Roshan leaned back against the stone wall of the jail cell, grumbling to herself incoherently while glaring at her fellow cell mates. She stank of the Eastern alcohol, sweat and dirt-result of an evening of heavy drinking and a recent fist fight. The others kept their distance, either too tired to start another fight or winded from being subdued by Suzou's authorities. It was not a good first day in the East Territory, but it could have been worse.

After separating again from Alen and leaving the West, Roshan decided to visit the East. She had heard many things of the East, mainly of the mystical treasures by Western treasure hunters, wise beasts and monks, and of the honor bound warriors that fiercely protected the Eastern islands. Much of the people who shared the vessel with her were businessmen, treasure hunters and Remnants such as herself searching for something to gain. Whatever the East Territory provided, it certainly would not give its secrets freely nor would it be easy to obtain an occupation.

Given her new taste for alcoholic beverages and curiosity, Roshan followed a group of Westerners to one of Suzou's sake houses-a place not unlike a tavern or a saloon. Armored men gathered there, with posters advertising to join the Eastern Faction with promises of land, wealth and recognition. Some of them leaving the posters at the sake house's entrance and outer walls. There were more of them inside, some with women in long robed dresses fawning over them or chatting idly. A few were gathered around watching two older men play a game with colored stones. The 'barkeep' was very busy with the orders of his patrons, cleaning out bottles and cups while trying to get everyone served.

The woman took her seat near a group of locals and the Westerners, ordering a small glass and a simple dish. Many people did not pay her any mind which suited her. The less that some brainless thug bothers her, the better. She had enough of that since her pit fighting days. Roshan instead listened to the conversations around her while she sipped and savors the flavor of the sake.

"Have you heard? The Factions are banding together to take on the Stronghold." a man said

"Everyone has been taking about it for almost a month now, how come you are late to learn of this?" another asked

"I certainly don't have the luxury of leaving my office in Iwanai very often. Orders have been pilling up and more men are being mobilized for battle."

"I also heard the officials have been recruiting Remnants in all the port towns, as though we don't even enough soldiers to face the Stronghold!"

"Ah, but you forget, the Stronghold's wall and defenses have not been penetrated. These good for nothing Remnants will be put to good use."

Crack!

The cup shattered in Roshan's hand, she snarled as her hair stiffened and her ears pressed downward against her head. It seemed almost every conversation was the same-or seemed to be as the woman had far too much to drink. She turned towards the group of local men, walked over and socked one of the men in jaw. What had begun as simple evening to relax after a journey at sea became brutal fist fight that saw many broken bones and furniture. With that terrible first impression, and the effects of alcohol, the woman decided that East was not worth her service.

"East Faction can go to hell..." she mumbled

Roshan really needs to learn some people skills. That or she should be more careful of what she drinks.

ATTENTION ARTISTS

Copyright law is about to change 

For more than a year Congress has been holding hearings for the drafting of a brand new US Copyright Act. At its heart is the return of Orphan Works 

What does this mean for artists? it means it will make it easier for infringers to steal artists works and harder for people who are making or trying to make a living out of art more difficult. This will effect every artist and all the artwork they have created, are creating, and will be created. Corporates, Big businesses, and publishers want this to pass to make money out off artists works without paying us artists for past, current, and future artwork. 

Basic Facts About The Law Being Proposed

 - “The Next Great Copyright Act” would replace all existing copyright law. 


 - It would void our Constitutional right to the exclusive control of our work.


 - It would “privilege” the public’s right to use our work.

 
 - It would “pressure” you to register your work with commercial registries.

 
 - It would “orphan” unregistered work.

 
 - It would make orphaned work available for commercial infringement by “good faith” infringers. 


 - It would allow others to alter your work and copyright these “derivative works” in their own names. 


 - It would affect all visual art: drawings, paintings, sketches, photos, etc.; past, present and future; published and unpublished; domestic and foreign. 

** Ways to stop this or preventing these changes from happening**

 > > > > > > > DEADLINE IS NEXT THURSDAY: JULY 23, 2015 < < < < < < 

 - share, reblog this post, spread it for other artists to take notice and action.

 - You can submit a letter on how this law can be an issue for you as an artist here.

 - Non-U.S. artists can email their letters to the attention of:
