Neopuron's Opening

[Bard Guild, Performance Hall] The auditorium is cavernous, and every inch of the curved ceiling appears to be covered in vividly colored frescos. The walls are a combination of polished mahogany and painted panels that equal the ceiling in decoration. Tiers of seats descend toward a stage at the hall's far end, their ranks upholstered in crimson velvet that matches red carpet runners traversing the aisles between them. A row of small lanterns illuminates the front of the stage. You also see the Repaire disk, the Brokkrsten disk, the sparkling Selaesia disk, the Amie disk, the fiery red Malifren disk, the rolton-shaped Maylan disk and the translucent Aranthius disk with a jade-eyed white kitten on it.

Also here: Elizhabet, Lord Amenadiel, Great Lord Zynthe, Great Lady Mazikaene, High Lady Kaseopea, Lord Katze, Laralana who is sitting, Conquerer of Reim Neovik, High Lord Repaire, Chairman Logeerkamer, Milax, Bbee who is sitting, Lord Arianiss, Shiril, Cruxophim, Wolfloner who is sitting, Mayor Lylia who is sitting, Great Lord Nazarr who is sitting, Daharo, Paymaster Xecnephias, Librarian Selaesia who is sitting, Maven Brokkrsten who is sitting, Goldstr who is sitting, Shinann who is sitting, Amie, Malifren who is sitting, Aranthius, Land Pirate Maylan who is sitting, Achernar who is sitting, Sweetsin who is sitting, Iseo who is sitting, Great Lady Hailleus who is sitting, Great Lord Grutak who is sitting, Sir Balantine who is sitting, Maati who is sitting, Katness, Great Lord Evician who is sitting, Neopuron who is sitting, Ameliya

An apprentice Bard wanders in and in a sonorous voice recites, "Come join Fenog's Regulars as we host a benefit for Wellington House. The Bardesses Khylynnia Sparrhawk and Jastalyn Dragorth will perform, and Luxelle Machtes Ashrim will be headlining. All proceeds will be donated to the Orphanage. Join us tonight at Ten Elven in the Wehnimer's Landing Bard Guild Performance Hall!" He then meanders out of sight.

Neopuron recites:

   "Please help yourself to some food or refreshments on the cart, as the show will be getting underway soon. Also, if you would like to enter the raffle and support a very noble and good cause please be sure to GET a ticket located in the lobby. Tickets are 10,000 silver and limited to one per guest."

Neopuron recites:

   "Good evening,"

Neopuron recites:

   "On behalf of Fenog s Regulars and myself, I would like to take a moment and welcome you all to A Night of the Performances."

Neopuron recites:

   "Tonight we have invited all you fine folk here to take part in something truly special, to share with you a bit of magic that can only be found in that of song. The magic of song that will reach out and touch each and every one of you in a different way. We have assembled three very talented and lovely performers for you this evening to share with you some of that magic."

Neopuron recites:

   "There will also be a raffle for a shimmering trinket this evening that will draw after the closing act. A magical little device that is sure to bring someone hours of enjoyment. Working closely with our local orphanage, this raffle is being used to raise funds for the Wellington Home. All proceeds from this raffle will be given to the Wellington Home in hopes to share some of our own magic with them."

Neopuron recites:

   "At this time I would like to call your attention to the stage and introduce our first act of the evening. The up-and-coming Bardess, Khylynnia SparrHawk, will be performing two songs for you tonight.  Please relax and enjoy the show."

Khylynnia Performs "Brother Can Ye'"

The curtain slowly opens.

Glancing up on stage you see...

[Bard Guild, Stage] Large and acoustically well proportioned, the stage opens expectantly to the auditorium -- lights and curtains, tabs and borders, all are cleverly placed to entice the audience's eye. A semitransparent scrim hangs at the back from the grid of metal framework above. A wide apron at the front of the stage completes the space, from which every seat in the house can be seen. You also see the stage left entrance, the proscenium steps and the stage right entrance.

Also here: Historian Khylynnia

Khylynnia walks gracefully out onto the stage, lowers herself into a lone chair and rests her mandolin case on the floor next to her.

Khylynnia recites:

   "Good Evening!  Fenog's Regulars would like to welcome you tonight.  We have gathered some amazing artists this evening to entertain you, and we hope that you enjoy the show."

Khylynnia removes a gold-accented ebonwood mandolin from in her suede mandolin case.

Khylynnia recites confidently:

   "Tonight is all about showing our support for Wellington Home and providing donations for the Orphanage.  We hope that you will dig deep and help us to make this night memorable, not only for ourselves, but for the orphans as well!"

Khylynnia recites smoothly:

   "Without further ado, what say we get this shindig started!"

Khylynnia recites jubilantly:

   "Let's see if we can start this off on a happy note!  I present to you, "Brother Can Ye"."

Neopuron lets out a cheer! Hailleus applauds. Evician lets out a cheer! Selaesia applauds. Laralana applauds. Cruxophim lets out a cheer! Brokkrsten applauds. Goldstr applauds. Shiril applauds. Cruxophim applauds.

Khylynnia rests her mandolin on her knee and takes in a deep breath, her fingers testing the strings and then she really begins to play in earnest.

With a twinkle in her eye, Khylynnia begins a jaunty melody on her mandolin.

Khylynnia sings cheerfully:

   "Forgive me friends but I'm a bard,
    And my life, though fulfilling, is rather hard!
    I sing and play and compose all day,
    I get lots of applause but no damned pay!"

Making the beat of the song even more infectious, Khylynnia sharply thumps the belly of her mandolin in time with the music.

Hailleus giggles. Shinann smiles.

Khylynnia sings playfully:

   "Busking away in the dusty town street,
    Trying to keep up a rapid downbeat.
    People just blithely pass me by -
    Without a "hey", and without a "hi"."

Goldstr grins. Bbee chuckles.

Khylynnia runs through the chorus twice, as if to make certain you will not be able to stop humming it anytime soon.

Khylynnia sings pleadingly:

   "My throat is parched, my mouth is dry,
    But Helga's prices are much too high,
    If I don't drink soon I am gonna die!
    So please kind sir I do need a drink,
    Brother can ye spare some clink?"

Khylynnia skillfully picks up the tempo of her music, making it difficult to keep from tapping your toes to the beat.

Iseo chuckles.

Khylynnia sings jubilantly:

   "I am asking a lot because I am in need,
    But it's Helga's fault, she is full of greed!
    It costs more for a nip than a sword or a bow,
    How a bard's to stay drunk - I do not know!"

Showing precise control over her mandolin, Khylynnia jumps from loud to soft and back again, adding a new dimension to the jaunty tune.

Khylynnia sings amusedly:

   "A sober bard! What a pitiful sight -
    It's enough to give your kids a fright!
    Bards play best when they are full -
    Of rum or grog or apple mull!"

Khylynnia runs through the chorus twice, as if to make certain you will not be able to stop humming it anytime soon.

Goldstr grins. Evician snickers.

Khylynnia sings pleadingly:

   "My throat is parched, my mouth is dry,
    But Helga's prices are much too high,
    If I don't drink soon I am gonna die!
    So please kind sir I do need a drink,
    Brother can ye spare some clink?"

Khylynnia jaunts through the rambunctious refrain, the melody and descant playing along in a breathless game of musical tag.

Khylynnia sings merrily:

   "In ale the fount of creativity,
    That's why drink's a bard's proclivity.
    If ye do enjoy our tunes so truly -
    Then wine's the thing lest we become unruly!"

Adroitly, Khylynnia slides her hand up the neck of the mandolin and continues playing, raising the song a full two octaves for a verse before dropping back down to the normal range.

Khylynnia sings boisterously:

   "Warriors fight and Mages think -
    Thieves do steal, but Bards they drink!
    If ye wish our tunes to fill the land,
    Then ye must give us a helping hand."

Khylynnia runs through the chorus twice, as if to make certain you will not be able to stop humming it anytime soon.

Khylynnia sings pleadingly:

   "My throat is parched, my mouth is dry,
    But Helga's prices are much too high,
    If I don't drink soon I am gonna die!
    So please kind sir I do need a drink,
    Brother can ye spare some clink?"

With a final jaunty chord, Khylynnia stills the strings of her mandolin.

Khylynnia put a gold-accented ebonwood mandolin in her suede mandolin case.

Khylynnia gracefully rises from her chair and then bows low, her diaphanous wings spread wide, right fist held to her heart.

Balantine lets out a cheer! Maati lets out a cheer! Aranthius lets out a cheer! Evician lets out a cheer! Goldstr applauds. Maylan applauds. Shinann applauds. Hailleus lets out a cheer! Bbee applauds. Cruxophim lets out a cheer! High Lord Repaire just arrived. Laralana lets out a cheer! Cruxophim applauds.

Khylynnia retakes her seat, adjusting the skirts of her gown as she settles herself comfortably

Selaesia applauds. Iseo lets out a cheer! Brokkrsten applauds. Milax applauds.

Khylynnia Performs "Winter's Tale"

Khylynnia recites warmly:

   "Thank you!  This night is just beginning, and we still have two more performers to hear from!  But before we move on to the next Artist, I would like to present for you, one more song."

Balantine applauds. Bbee applauds. Shiril applauds. Achernar applauds. Sweetsin applauds.

Khylynnia removes a silver-gilded dark ebony harp from in her suede mandolin case.

Iseo lets out a cheer!

Khylynnia recites proudly:

   "This song is one of my favorites, and I hope you enjoy it as well.  For your listening pleasure I give to you, "Winter's Tale.""

Carefully Khylynnia places her hands on the strings of her harp, pauses a moment in reflection, then begins the quiet, forlorn strains of a gentle ballad.

Khylynnia sings earnestly:

   "Come sit and listen to the winter's tale
    The room be warm and so's the ale
    And as you sit, rejoice in life's regale
    For the spark of life is flickering frail"

Khylynnia's harp strings sing with a poignant sweet sorrow, like a widow standing at her husband's grave.

Khylynnia sings smoothly:

   "Farmer's son looks across the field of snow
    Past is the time to reap, not yet the time to sow
    As autumn ebbs there came first winter's touch
    Though at first the snowflakes do not fall so much"

Bringing her own special touch to the song, Khylynnia plucks a quiet, yet passionate refrain on her harp, like wind whistling through the trees.

Khylynnia sings rhythmically:

   "Glad at first snap of wintry chill
    It means for a time no more fields to till
    He puts behind a year of sweat and toil
    There is no growing in the frozen soil"

Khylynnia expresses all of her sensitivity and talent through her harp as she carries the sad ballad into the next verse.

Khylynnia sings boisterously:

   "Now will he dance at coming yuletide fest
    And enjoy the winter's call with youthful zest
    For the winter's respite is short and sweet
    And soon the call of spring will he greet"

The discordant harmony Khylynnia draws quietly from her harp wails, keening like a chill winter's wind across the steppes.

Khylynnia sings airily:

   "And he laughs..."

Khylynnia sings clearly:

   "I embrace the coming of my winter
    Winter's the time to dance and sing and tell tall tales
    I give thanks to Mistress Winter
    For there is respite in the landscape deathly pale"

Using dynamics skillfully, Khylynnia plays her harp with tender poetic expression -- mournfully, softly, passionately.

Khylynnia sings ploddingly:

   "Young man merchant all alone in the snow
    His wagon wheel on the road was thrown
    He began his trek in unmindful heed
    From his trader brethren though they did plead"

Khylynnia performs an even more haunting and poignant rendition of the mournful ballad on her harp, her fingers touching the strings firmly, then softly.

Khylynnia sings mockingly:

   "He was leaving too late at the end of fall
    He would not hear the sound of winter's call
    Now the icy roads caused his wagon to slip
    And the brittle cold fouled his wheel's grip"

With leading tones and minor chord resolutions, the melody pouring from Khylynnia's harp mourns like a threnody, a lamentation for the dead.

Khylynnia sings slowly:

   "With a final gasp he lays down by his horse
    There is no more warmth from that animal's corpse
    He pulls his satin cloak o'er his shivering head
    For he knows by the morrow will he be dead"

The discordant harmony Khylynnia draws quietly from her harp wails, keening like a chill winter's wind across the steppes.

Khylynnia sings somberly:

   "And he thinks..."

Khylynnia sings soulfully:

   "I feel the coming of my winter
    I feel its icy tendrils lightly caressing me
    I give myself to Mistress Winter
    May she receive my soul and with mercy set me free"

Khylynnia performs an even more haunting and poignant rendition of the mournful ballad on her harp, her fingers touching the strings firmly, then softly.

Khylynnia sings deafeningly:

   "Old man runs through the fallen snow
    Though where he heads he does not know
    But legs are tired and side does ache
    And though deadly tired he cannot break"

Using dynamics skillfully, Khylynnia plays her harp with tender poetic expression -- mournfully, softly, passionately.

Khylynnia sings jauntily:

   "For he has braved the ancient mountains cold
    In search of rumours of forgotten gold
    And of all the dangers he dismissed as least
    The grip of winter 'pon the wild beast"

With leading tones and minor chord resolutions, the melody pouring from Khylynnia's harp mourns like a threnody, a lamentation for the dead.

Khylynnia sings hauntingly:

   "So he looks behind him one last time
    To see the pack up the hillside climb
    For the wolves are frenzied from lack of prey
    But the winter has brought them their sup this day"

The discordant harmony Khylynnia draws quietly from her harp wails, keening like a chill winter's wind across the steppes.

Khylynnia sings gravely:

   "And he gasps..."

Khylynnia sings mournfully:

   "I feel the coming of my winter
    I feel its steamy breath damp and hot upon my heels
    I curse the day I braved the winter
    For she's a mistress who delights in whom she steals"

Khylynnia's harp playing becomes spare yet sensitive as she approaches the depths of the ballad's sorrow.

Khylynnia sings eerily:

   "Moans are dampened by the falling snow
    Still the shrieks begin to grow and grow
    Husband holds the hand of suff'ring wife
    As she brings to being a brand new life"

Bringing her own special touch to the song, Khylynnia plucks a quiet, yet passionate refrain on her harp, like wind whistling through the trees.

Khylynnia sings wistfully:

   "For her time thought far was really near
    And for her life does the poor man fear
    For birthing is ne'er an easy event
    But with the chilling cold her life's near spent"

With leading tones and minor chord resolutions, the melody pouring from Khylynnia's harp mourns like a threnody, a lamentation for the dead.

Khylynnia sings tenderly:

   "With her final heave does life begin
    And with her dying breath do her eyes drink in
    The sight of her babe in husband's arm
    As he swadles the infant to keep it warm"

The discordant harmony Khylynnia draws quietly from her harp wails, keening like a chill winter's wind across the steppes.

Khylynnia sings darkly:

   "And she hears him..."

Khylynnia sings funereally:

   "I feel the coming of my winter
    For winter be the time of dying and rebirth
    This utter joy be mixed with sadness
    I pray the spring may come and wash away the hurt"

Using dynamics skillfully, Khylynnia plays her harp with tender poetic expression -- mournfully, softly, passionately.

Khylynnia sings tenderly:

   "Old woman gazes at the falling snow
    She sits in her chair rocking to and fro
    And though she knows the fire she should tend
    She's content to sit and let her life here end"

Khylynnia's harp playing becomes spare yet sensitive as she approaches the depths of the ballad's sorrow.

Khylynnia sings depressingly:

   "For she has lived these Oh so many years
    Through days of laughter and through nights of tears
    And now she hears a frosty voice entice
    It reminds her of the tinkle of falling ice"

With leading tones and minor chord resolutions, the melody pouring from Khylynnia's harp mourns like a threnody, a lamentation for the dead.

Khylynnia sings grimly:

   "So she sits back and shuts her rheumy eyes
    And while she does the fire slowly dies
    And all the aches and pains of life subside
    As she invites the winter's touch to her inside"

The discordant harmony Khylynnia draws quietly from her harp wails, keening like a chill winter's wind across the steppes.

Khylynnia sings resoundingly:

   "And the voice says..."

Khylynnia sings tremblingly:

   "This is the ending of your winter
    You respected me and lived your life in peace
    Come join your husband in my springtime
    For in the end you have earned your blest surcease"

Khylynnia creates a deadly, crawling-on-my-belly feel as she draw a mournful dirge from the bass strings of her harp.

Khylynnia sings proudly:

   "And so ends the winter's tale
    Within's a lesson you should avail
    For though man is proud and hates to fail
    It is always the winter that shall prevail"

Khylynnia touches the strings of her harp in one last chord, the minor resolution ringing on as she slowly drops her hands.

Khylynnia put a silver-gilded dark ebony harp in her suede mandolin case.

Slowly, Khylynnia reaches for the lid of her case and closes it. She latches it with deft hands.

Khylynnia rises smoothly to her feet, places one hand over her heart and bows low. A twinkle in her eye and a smile across her lips, she then stands proudly upon the stage.

Neopuron's First Intermission

Neopuron stands up.

Hailleus melodically says, "Beautiful."

Neopuron recites:

   "We will now take a brief intermission as we prepare for our next act. Please feel free to top off your drinks and help yourself to a tasty snack located in the lobby. Also if you re still interested in our raffle to support the Wellington Home, please make sure to GET yourself a ticket out there as well. We will continue very shortly"

Cruxophim applauds.

Neopuron smiles.

A long, sustained note hangs in the air for several seconds, followed by the sharp *TWANG* of a breaking string.

Neopuron smiles.

Speaking to Neopuron, Grutak asks, "I was wondering if you could tell us more about your charity event this evening?"

Speaking to Grutak, Neopuron says, "Raising funds for the local orphanage in the Landing."

Grutak says, "A worthy cause."

Speaking to Neopuron, Grutak asks, "Is this your personal cause?"

Neopuron looks over at Grutak and shakes his head.

Speaking to Grutak, Neopuron says, "Only for charity."

Maylan drunkenly asks, "Whares the babies for kissing and whatnot?"

Grutak nods slowly at Neopuron.

Neopuron recites:

   "At this time I would like to call your attention back to the stage and introduce our second act of the evening, Jastalyn Dragorth."

Evician applauds. Grutak turns to face the stage. Shinann leans forward and rests her chin in her hand, a thoughtful expression on her face.

Speaking skeptically to Maylan, Shiril asks, "Is that what babies are for?"

You lean forward and rest your chin in your hand, a thoughtful expression on your face. Goldstr applauds. Sweetsin watches the stage closely for a moment. Iseo says, "And not one glass of champagne on me."

Jastalyn Performs "Love's Very First Kiss."

The auditorium lights slowly dim as a hush fills the room.

The curtain slowly opens.

Glancing up on stage you see...

[Bard Guild, Stage] Large and acoustically well proportioned, the stage opens expectantly to the auditorium -- lights and curtains, tabs and borders, all are cleverly placed to entice the audience's eye. A semitransparent scrim hangs at the back from the grid of metal framework above. A wide apron at the front of the stage completes the space, from which every seat in the house can be seen. You also see the stage left entrance, the proscenium steps and the stage right entrance.

Also here: Arbiter Jastalyn

Jastalyn smiles.

Iseo lets out a cheer! Evician lets out a cheer! Neopuron lets out a cheer! Cruxophim lets out a cheer!

Jastalyn recites softly:

   "This is a short love song titled, "Love's Very First Kiss."

Arianiss applauds. Goldstr applauds. You grin. You applaud. Hailleus applauds. Sweetsin applauds. Grutak applauds. Bbee applauds.

Jastalyn cradles her zither close to her body as her slender fingers take their place among the strings.

Jastalyn begins playing a quiet song on her cherrywood zither.

Jastalyn sings melodically:

   "When I saw you from the start,
    Something special is what I felt.
    I had no idea you'd steal my heart,
    Playing the hand that I was dealt."

Appearing relaxed and confident, Jastalyn places her hands on her cherrywood zither, gliding with gentle gestures into a simple, soft ballad.

Jastalyn sings softly:

   "Love's very first kiss
    Can take you by surprise.
    When you hold me like this
    And look into my eyes"

Jastalyn smiles quietly to herself.

Jastalyn plucks a quiet song on her cherrywood zither with ease and subtlety; the musical nuances appealingly intimate.

Jastalyn sings softly:

   "It's like looking at myself
    From a whole new perspective.
    With your first kiss I knew,
    You'd give all you had to give"

Jastalyn's graceful shaping of the lyrical adagio is as elegant and gracious as a swan gliding across the evening pond.

Jastalyn sings earnestly:

   "Months have passed
    And how much we've grown.
    I wouldn't change a thing,
    Even if I had known"

Appearing relaxed and confident, Jastalyn places her hands on her cherrywood zither, gliding with gentle gestures into a simple, soft ballad.

Jastalyn sings softly:

   "Love's very first kiss
    Can take you by surprise.
    When I hold you like this
    And look into your eyes"

Jastalyn closes her eyes as her fingers skillfully glide along the strings of her zither.

Jastalyn plucks a quiet song on her cherrywood zither with ease and subtlety; the musical nuances appealingly intimate.

Jastalyn sings softly:

   "It's like looking at myself
    From a whole new perspective.
    With your first kiss I knew,
    I'd give all I had to give"

As Jastalyn plays softly on her cherrywood zither, each note magically appears on time and in place with a tone that is substantial and rich but never forced.

Jastalyn sings seductively:

   "Kiss me my love and
    Put your hand in mine.
    Tomorrow is uncertain,
    We only have this time"

Appearing relaxed and confident, Jastalyn places her hands on her cherrywood zither, gliding with gentle gestures into a simple, soft ballad.

Jastalyn sings softly:

   "Love's very first kiss
    Can take you by surprise.
    When we hold on like this
    And look into each other's eyes"

Jastalyn subtly shivers as a memory visually passes over her face causing her to smile slightly.

Jastalyn plucks a quiet song on her cherrywood zither with ease and subtlety; the musical nuances appealingly intimate.

Jastalyn sings softly:

   "It's like looking at myself
    From a whole new perspective.
    With our first kiss we knew,
    We'll give all we have to give"

Jastalyn brings her quiet performance to a close with three descending harmonics; these last notes ring on, barely heard, as she lets her arms fall to her sides.

Jastalyn holds her zither over her heart, closes her eyes and bows.

Goldstr applauds.

Jastalyn recites softly:

   "Neopuron, Khylynnia, and myself on behalf of Fenog's Regulars would like to thank you this evening for coming out to help us support the Wellington Home."

Jastalyn bows again and waves.

Jastalyn curtsies gracefully.

Maylan applauds. Selaesia applauds. You applaud. Evician lets out a cheer!

The auditorium lights slowly brighten, casting a soft glow through the room.

Neopuron smiles.

Speaking melodically to Grutak, Hailleus asks, "Is that how you feel about me?"

Hailleus peers quizzically at Grutak.

Neopuron recites:

   "We will now take another brief intermission as we prepare for our final act of the evening. Again, please feel free to top of your drinks and help yourself to a tasty snack. Also if you re still interested in our raffle to support the Wellington Home, please make sure to GET yourself a ticket."

Shaelethe laughs softly, trying to hide her amusement.

With his jawbone dagger and abyran'ra skull held high, Cruxophim throws his head back, arching his body slightly, as he releases a heathen scream.

(Bbee peeks around the curtain.)

Tucking his jawbone dagger against his body, Cruxophim squeezes his right hand into a fist and holds it out over a small abyran'ra skull. Blood streams through his fingers and along his hand, splattering down into it.

[Bard Guild, Stage] Large and acoustically well proportioned, the stage opens expectantly to the auditorium -- lights and curtains, tabs and borders, all are cleverly placed to entice the audience's eye.

You also see the Luxelle disk, the stage left entrance, the proscenium steps and the stage right entrance.
