Gavel


Ok, just finishing off some more Mantic Terran stuff, so here’s another item I got this week.

Yes – a gavel.

As regulars will have noticed, I allude to the fact I am chairman of the local council, and had a particularly contentious planning application with an expectation a lot of the public would turn up and want to have their say.

On top of which, when attending training courses – yes councillors do get training – I had been hassled to get a gavel.

So now seemed to be the time. So I had one produced for me by a local carpenter.

The carpenter turned this order round in one day despite being away over the w/e. he did his homework and found out that traditional gavels are made out of yew tree wood.

So that’s what he did – I think he enjoyed it as an alternative to his main business of kitchen units and work tops.

Fortunately, I did not have to use the item during the meeting as the council was prepared beforehand via a BBQ we held, and as I read out the list of complaints we had already received and simply asked “Does anyone have anything new and novel to add to this discussion ?”.

Its my own personal property, and I think it will be useful for adjudicating in RPG and war-games sessions if the players get unruly. 🙂
