The following is a log of the Court dances of New Ta'Faendryl held at the Faendryl Symposium on June 11, 2015. Log provided by Sparegris.

[A Silk Pavillion, The Gathering]
Swathes of rich claret-hued silk cover the walls of the pavilion, leaving the sides airy yet secluded. Several cushioned sofas and chairs covered with ebon brocade have been placed about a rich wool carpet. Hanging from the peaked ceiling are a trio of clear crystal lanterns suspended from dark steel chains. Set in the center of the gathering space to ward off the chill is a small marble firepit with a patterned basket of sticks sitting to one side. You also see an expansive carved basalt relief, a marble Palestra statue, a marble elven summoner statue, an imposing black and grey painting and a small ebonwood table with a polished silver platter on it.
Obvious exits: out

A voice cries out from somewhere nearby, "Dance Master Sarvyis Neflior Faendryl will be in the pavilion by the Faendryl embassy in just a bit. He is rounding up his musicians and will begin the dance lessons a few moments late."

Tredohal walks in.

Tredohal says, "Good evening."

Lylia bows to Tredohal.

Lylia says, "Ah, good evening to you."

Lylia smiles at Tredohal.

Speaking in Faendryl to Tredohal, you say, "Good evening Ambassador."

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "It is good to see so many here to learn to dance."

Speaking in Faendryl to Tredohal, Karluth says, "Ambassador, it is good to see you."

Lylia says, "The clomping and stamping I usually see in the Landing is all well and good, but to see something a bit more refined -- yes, I would like that."

Laelithonel skips in a circle around Lylia.

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "And it is good to see, to see everyone."

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "Excellent."

Karluth nods respectfully at Tredohal.

Karluth walks over to the chair and settles down.

Speaking neutrally in Dark Elven to Tredohal, Xinza says, "Good evening, Ambassador."

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "The dancemaster has two dances to practice with you."

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "Please step to the north east."

Tredohal nods.

Ambassador Tredohal just went northeast.

[A Silk Pavillion, Ballroom]
Panels of dark ebonwood are fitted together in the center of the room, creating a large dance floor. The placement of the wood tiles in various directions makes unique patterns and enhances the natural grain. A variety of silk-cushioned chairs are placed about the room, their carved feet sinking into a thick carpet that surrounds the central area. Black steel racks of candles stand tall about the perimeter. You also see a raised oak stage.

A voice cries out from somewhere nearby, "Dance Master Sarvyis Neflior Faendryl is beginning now in the pavilion by the Faendryl embassy."

Sarvyis says, "Excellent."

Sarvyis asks, "How many of you attend balls and stand about, awkwardly?"

Sarvyis asks, "Where does your hand go?"

Lylia quips, "I prefer to think I stand about gracefully."

Sarvyis asks, "Where does his?"

Aurach softly says, "Good evening Ambassador, all gathered."

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "I am afraid duties call me away, but please enjoy."

Tredohal bows.

Speaking to Tredohal, Karluth says, "Good evening, Ambassador."

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "I leave you in the dancing hands of Lord Sarvyis."

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "Or... um... feet."

Ambassador Tredohal just went southwest.

Sarvyis says, "Excellent."

Sarvyis says, "Well now."

Sarvyis asks, "Will you please pair up with a partner?"

Sarvyis says, "And we will try a few basic steps."

Sarvyis says, "Gentlemen please raise your hand."

Xinza smiles at Karluth.

Laelithonel turns to face Abrimel.

Laelithonel smiles at Abrimel.

Sarvyis says, "Even if your partner is the worst one in the city, smile."

Karluth grins weakly.

Laelithonel drops smoothly into a deep curtsy before Abrimel, sweeping her arms grandly to her sides.

(Xinza mimics a curtsy as if she's wearing a skirt.)

Aurach softly says, "Unless they have been married several centuries."

Lylia smiles at Aurach and sinks into a deep curtsy, her skirts pooling around her like liquid eahnor.

Sarvyis says, "It would be rude not to."

Aurach nods sagely.

Karluth glances down.

Laelithonel ponders.

Sarvyis says, "And excellent, if you do not have on a gown, pretend."

Lylia nods at Sarvyis.

Speaking to Sarvyis, Laelithonel asks, "Wha'if ya partner is a female as well? Or male as well? Do both bow an'curtsy?"

Sarvyis says, "Perhaps our latecomer will join in."

Aurach twists his head slightly, cracking his neck. He looks relieved.

Laelithonel folds her arms over her chest.

Sarvyis says, "Men."

Speaking in Faendryl, Demyse quietly says, "My deepest of regrets, I attempted to wait for one on my wifes to be ready for such a venture."

Sarvyis says, "Sashay in a wide circle around your partner while still holding their hand, like this."

Laelithonel cocks her head at Abrimel.

Sarvyis says, "Very pretty."

(Karluth steps as lightly as he can with Xinza to his left, keeping a fleeting eye on his feet.)

Lylia praises Laelithonel.

Laelithonel flushes slightly, some color reaching her cheeks.

Speaking quietly in Faendryl to you, Demyse says, "One of my House, family wishes to dance with you. As appealing as the moment be, I wish not to rob one who wishes this moment more than myself."

Speaking in Faendryl to Demyse, Xinza snaps, "Will one of you dance with the girl?"

Karluth turns to face Xinza.

Sarvyis says, "PUSH your partner up to lift her in the air."

Speaking to Xinza, Karluth says, "Of course."

Karluth inclines his head.

Lylia gives a sidelong glance at Aurach.

Sarvyis says, "Or perhaps we need some music."

Sarvyis taps on the side of the raised oak stage three times.

A small orchestra of musicians wanders in and takes their place in a small alcove of the raised oak stage.

Leading in with a slow introduction, the musicians strike up a lilting waltz.

(Xinza turns back to Karluth.)

Sarvyis says, "There."

Xinza nods at Karluth.

Speaking in Faendryl to Karluth, Xinza remarks, "You're stronger than you look."

(Aurach lowers his center of gravity slightly at the knees, moving his hands to Lylia's waist and pushing up and into the air as he returns to full height.)

Sarvyis says, "Man you have one more movement."

Speaking quietly to Xinza, Karluth says, "You're light a fresh snow."

(Lylia rests one hand on Aurach's shoulder.)

Sarvyis turns to face Aurach.

The buoyant strains of the waltz fills the room, the theme edged with a sonorous quality.

Sarvyis says, "You got it."

Sarvyis quickly sets his partner down on the floor and pulls her close as his feet guide hers in a fast dance.

Lylia lifts one arm in a graceful pose, causing the metallic weft of her gown to gleam as her posture shifts.

Aurach inclines his head.

Xinza chuckles to herself.

Sarvyis says, "You will set her down and begin a quick dance about the room."

(Aurach stands there holding her in the air.)

The air about Demyse stops shimmering.

Aurach nods slowly.

Demyse seems to lose some dexterity.

Lylia taps Aurach lightly on his shoulder.

(Aurach lowers Lylia back to her feet.)

Laelithonel gazes dazedly at Aurach.

Lylia smooths the metallic fabric of her gown, and it glitters in the ambient light.

(Karluth slowly sets Xinza down after thier twirl about the floor.)

Lylia nods once at Aurach.

Gentle chiming sounds accompany the soft music as it picks up in pace, the triple meter now lively and upbeat.

Karluth glances around the room.

Lylia cocks her head.

Demyse leans his head down to touch his cheek to your own as you dance.

(Xinza finds her footing easily, alert eyes on Karluth to follow his lead.)

(Abrimel wobbles a little, then drops Laelithonel uncerimoniously back to her feet, panting.)

Laelithonel softly giggles.

Sarvyis says, "And then begin a fast dance with your partner."

Laelithonel tinkers with Abrimel's appearance.

Lylia grins impishly.

Sarvyis says, "Now let's put them together."

Sweeping notes from a harpsichord blend seamlessly with the other instruments as the music takes on a softer tone.

Speaking incredulously to Sarvyis, Karluth asks, "A fast dance?"

Lylia raises her voice in merry laughter.

Abrimel dances lightly across the dance floor with Laelithonel.

Karluth clears his throat.

Sarvyis says, "PUSh your partner up and then set her down while moving in a fast dance."

Karluth grins weakly.

Karluth grins at Xinza.

Deckits rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Demyse steals a kiss as he sways with you across the dance floor.

The musicians formulate a rousing conclusion to the waltz, though they ultimately conclude with a quiet coda.

Sarvyis turns to face you.

Demyse smiles.

Laelithonel beckons you closer with a slow curl of her forefinger.

Sarvyis says, "I am confused as well."

Lylia grins at Laelithonel.

Speaking encouragingly to Xinza, Karluth says, "Well, you seem to be doing fine as is."

Demyse takes a few steps back.

Laelithonel turns to face you.

Abrimel nods quickly!

Laelithonel dramatically spins away from you and fluidly drops into a curtsy with one foot sliding gracefully forward before rising to meet your eyes with a grin.

Speaking to Aurach, Lylia says, "You are quite light on your feet."

Sarvyis asks, "Can we put this altogether?"

Speaking in Faendryl, Demyse quietly says, "All the more reason to step back, if I am not known."

Demyse smiles.

Aurach pulls his faenor-hued surcoat aside for a moment.

Aurach runs a hand across the front of his armor and a few wisps of vapor stream out behind his fingertips.

Deckits chuckles.

Lylia adds, "And I am pleased you are not heavy on my feet, either."

Sarvyis says, "Men to the left... ladies sashay around."

The quiet strumming of a single mandolin quite suddenly transforms into a jaunty tune as other instruments join in the composition.

Abrimel strides over to stand before Deckits.

Laelithonel tried to hold your hand, but you are a member of Demyse's group. Click JOIN Laelithonel to join Laelithonel.

Laelithonel bites her lip.

You join Laelithonel.

Speaking to Deckits, Abrimel says, "Laeli's going to dance with her for a bit. My arms are knackered."

Speaking softly to Lylia, Aurach says, "I am somewhat floating most often."

Aurach covers his mouth, then gives a small, discrete cough.

Laelithonel claps her hands.

You smile at Laelithonel.

Laelithonel drops smoothly into a deep curtsy before you, sweeping her arms grandly to her sides.

Aurach takes a few steps to his left.

Xinza nods encouragingly at Karluth.

Sarvyis says, "Then lift her and put her down while beginning a fast dance."

With the quick, lively beat of a country dance, several shawms keep time with the light tapping of the musicians' feet.

(Karluth holding Xinzas hand, lightly half spins to his left, keeping her to his right.)

Lylia lifts one arm in a graceful pose, causing the metallic weft of her gown to gleam as her posture shifts.

(Lylia takes Aurach's hand by the fingertips and sashays around him, her hips swaying and her feet moving in time to the music. She seems to have the hang of it now.)

Laelithonel says, "Curtsy an'bow before."

Laelithonel says, "An'smile even if they smell funny."

Laelithonel nods slowly.

(Karluth grasps Xinzas other hand as he switches his half spin to his right, keeping her to his left.)

Laelithonel looks lost in thought.

Energetic passages tumble forth from the musicians, one after the other, in a complex but cohesive whirl of sound.

(Xinza sashays around Karluth again, moving smoothly to the right with him.)

Karluth dances lightly across the dance floor with Xinza.

Xinza dances lightly across the dance floor with Karluth.

Xinza ponders.

Xinza surreptitiously glances at Sarvyis.

Lylia says, "You know, Laeli, that is the very soul of diplomacy. 'Smile even if they smell funny.' Very astute."

Xinza lifts Karluth up high into the air and twirls with him!

Xinza hums a disjointed, angry little tune.

Abrimel sniffs at Demyse.

Karluth blinks at Xinza.

Abrimel smiles.

Sarvyis asks, "Does that make sense?"

Lylia grins at Xinza.

Karluth smirks at Xinza.

Speaking amusedly in Faendryl to Karluth, Xinza says, "..we forgot that part."

Demyse examines Abrimel closely, sizing him up and taking note of all the details.

(OOC) Laelithonel's player whispers to the group, "Okies! There's verbs and then ACT commands. Sashay left/right person will give the same result about. Is it stride right?"

Laelithonel peers quizzically at Abrimel.

Laelithonel squints at Demyse.

Speaking to Demyse, Laelithonel says, "Mine."

Speaking to Xinza, Karluth says, "You mean, I forgot that part."

Speaking in Faendryl, Xinza says, "I could have reminded you."

J>stride right
You take a few steps to your right.

Suddenly the instruments quiet, save for a single mandolin, which continues on with an animated plucking of its strings. As the notes hit a peak of sound, the other musicians join in once again.

Where are you trying to go?

(Xinza shrugs one shoulder at Karluth.)

Xinza nods at Sarvyis.

(OOC) Abrimel's player whispers to the group, "Stride*."

Speaking to Abrimel, Laelithonel says, "Ya do as ya please."

Festive and almost sprightly music continues to spill through the air.

Laelithonel steals a kiss from Abrimel as they sway across the dance floor.

Abrimel adopts an agreeable expression.

Sarvyis says, "Ah excellent for this."

Lylia gently brushes her auburn hair away from her eyes and, with a deft twist of her wrist, tucks it back into its bindings.

Sarvyis says, "That is the basic steps of the dance."

Lylia fans herself.

Sarvyis says, "And you can embellish it as you like."

Xinza runs a hand through her cropped blue-black hair, trying to make herself presentable.

Xinza shifts her weight.

Speaking in Faendryl, you say, "Most interesting."

Karluth runs a hand through his very long white hair, trying to make himself presentable.

Karluth casually plucks a speck of dust from his stormy grey robes and flicks it away.

Laelithonel sashays in a circle to the left.

The sounds of each instrument fade away, one by one, until only a single mandolin is left strumming. With a quick brush on the strings, the musician plays a final, concluding chord.

Sarvyis says, "Full skirts look lovely when doing this."

Laelithonel swings you out then spins you right back into her arms.

Lylia nods at Sarvyis.

Abrimel folds his hands behind his back.

J>dance
You sway to and fro as you dance.

Speaking to Sarvyis, Karluth says, "I'm sure they do."

Sarvyis asks, "Lets try a slow song shall we?"

(OOC) You whisper, "Run those commands again." to your group.

All at once, several flutes, a piccolo, a mandolin, a cittern, and an enshai begin to play as one in a two quarter-note beat.

Demyse just left.

(OOC) Laelithonel's player whispers to the group, "Bow/cursty, smile, stride right, sashay left person, push person, dance person."

(OOC) Laelithonel's player whispers to the group, "That's the basic dance."

Staccato notes plucked on the cittern underlie the longer notes of the enshai and flutes as they continue to maintain the beat.

Demyse just arrived.

(OOC) Laelithonel's player whispers to the group, "Also you may or may not have this already: https://gswiki.play.net/mediawiki/index.php/Verb_list."

Lylia chuckles.
