HD – Can we get our receipt for paying you for our interview? Will you validate our parking?
Jericho hands them a receipt. “I do not validate parking.”
HD – “Can we get a coupon to reduce the price? It is bloody expensive.”

HD – Do you think Channicuts are Greedy?
Jericho – “Yes we are and what is wrong with that?

Jericho – “I prefer being called a fat Dragon.
HD – Do you think your wife, Clarabelle, was looked down on by her family for her perceived greed?
Jericho – “I think she was, she is told me as much. That is their fault for not accepting for what she is and my gain. We are perfect for each other and we have beautiful children.
HD – “How do you maintain your alliance with UT in face of its bad public relations, invasions of its neighbours and restrictive policies?”
Jericho – “It’s not that difficult, he has his sandbox and I have mine.

Jericho – “Never met them so I don’t have an opinion on them.
HD – “Do you think it is fair that Swayville has their lands and gave one to Lucius?”
Jericho – “Personally I think those lands should go to Channicut. But he is the King of Chaos so they are his lands to do with.
HD – Channicut Independence? Yes or no?
Jericho – “No. It’s not worth the hassle, it goes against the basic philosophy that if we were suddenly King of Chaos we would be ruling over less, and it will cost far too much political capital to achieve.
HD – “Do you think Swayville snapping his fingers at Lucius Channicut Brandenberg is acceptable?”
Jericho – “For Lucius it’s acceptable for me not so much.
HD – Do you think Channicut would be richer if independent?
Jericho – “It might look like on paper we would be richer but we would have to pay for everything that Dragon throne provides. If the Dragon throne wanted to end this debate they should reduce the tax burden the more wealthy grand duchies pay. If the less fortunate grand duchies want more money they should hire an unemployed or underemployed Channicut to help increase the capital. I can provide some names for a fee of course.
HD – Should the Imperial Parliament reduce the burden on the Great Houses?
Jericho – “Yes they should.
HD – You are third in line for the current Chaos Royal Succession – any changes if you became king?
Jericho – “There would be a lot of changes, most of them nobody would see. I would decrease the tax burden on the richer duchies and help expansion for any loyal house.
HD – Should Channicut have an Academy and a Higher University and College like the Imperial War College of Chaos or the Helgram Academy?
Jericho – “I might get around to suggesting that, though people from the Duchy can come here if they want higher education. I have reciprocity agreements in place.

Jericho – “Like I said private matter.
HD – Which do you like more? Jerichoways in Channicut, Nod, New Vegas or New Asgard
Jericho – “My favorite place is where I grew up Nod. New Asgard and New Vegas are close behind. Mainly because I had a hand in creating the places. Jerichoways is a place I go to when I want to get away from things.
HD – “Why do you like Jerichoways the most?”
Jericho – “I prefer to call Nod my favorite place because I grew up here.
HD – Tell us of your children.
Jericho – “I have currently eight children and they are wonderful. Clara and I are quite proud of them. They are independent, creative, very good with money, and can handle themselves in any situation.
HD – “Do you have any bastards or children outside of marriage?”
Jericho – “No I do not. I was very careful. I believe not in spreading my seed everywhere. That is why one gets married and the tax write off.
HD – Is it true Aspasia whips servants so cruelly that Tubble winces?
Jericho – “Rumors from jealous people.
HD – “She was seen whipping servants in Amber City. Do you think she whips the servants in the Amber City entertainment district?”

Jericho – “Exploring, invoicing the will of the Empire, and archaeology.

Jericho – “Accept the things as they are and move on. I don’t gamble.
HD – Why did Nestor sell his cousin once removed, Patrick back to Ian?
Jericho – “You will have to ask Nestor that question. He did get a fairly good deal.
HD – “Are you ashamed he sold a cousin to Ian?”
Jericho – “Why would I be? He got a very good price.
HD – Is Nod/New Vegas/New Asgard in a secret war with an advanced Nordic race in your own lands.
Jericho – “If I told you it wouldn’t be a secret. We are not at war with them.
HD – “So you are at peace with them? Who are they?”
Jericho – “They are people from my Power.
HD – You have a lot of tourism in an open society. How have you benefited by UT tightening of its borders?
Jericho – “Oh yes, we have been getting a sizable increase in tourism sense Ultimate Terror tightened their borders.

Jericho – “I’ve been calling UT Ultimate Terror from the beginning. When I helped liberate it even. It signifies a joke.
HD – Have you lost money from UT tourists no longer being allowed to travel out of UT.

Jericho – “Yes that was and they paid their bill. No incident.“
HD – King Lucius banned non High Bloods from travel outside of UT unless they are minions of a High Blood. Can you comment
Jericho – “It’s his land he can do whatever he wants as long as it doesn’t impede any of my people that have to go in there.
HD – What would you do if he Ambernites or Borstalled an unknown son of yours?”
Jericho – “The only way they would get that treatment is if they had a block on their blood. Being my children they wouldn’t be that stupid.
