The Kingdom has come up with its own forms of punishments over the millennia but does occasionally pinch ideas from other worlds . (It prefers to think of it as “being inspired by other worlds” but it outright lifting of ideas). The realm as a whole was rather taken with the stocks form of punishment and some of the more remote Kingdom villages have installed these. They don’t throw wet sponges at offending sprites. They throw rotten vegetables and fruit (but often they “forget” to take them out of the cans first!).
Dwarves and Mining Safety Rules
The dwarves coming to their senses and accepting the need for mining safety rules. The Queen and her Council are happy for the dwarves to decide what these should be but do want to see an end to the dithering that’s gone on about this issue. The Queen and her Council do not believe that the dwarves actually want mine disasters. The Queen and her Council do not want to impose – it causes hassle for the government – but are getting tired of arguing over this so would like to see a sensible settlement.
An end to annoying acronyms, particularly those made by the sprites to spell out a rude word or idea. The Queen has made strenuous efforts (and had several personal visits) to try to convince the sprites of this but to date has not succeeded. So the sprites will be pleased to know Her Majesty has no intention of trying again. She will, however, shoot the next sprite to whatever galaxy she deems fit on the next attempt.
