Japhrimel says, "Still are."

Japhrimel says, "Our people rejected such gems.. though the heliodor was it.. we do not use them in heraldry."

Speaking in Faendryl, Maetriks says, "Upon Despana releasing her magicks upon the world, the alabaster began to suck in the darkness and altered in state... thus why it is called despanal."

Japhrimel nods.

Speaking softly to Japhrimel, Aeavenne says, "I believe after the war with Despana, so many sorcerous magics were used that the alabaster changed to what we now c."

Aeavenne softly says, "Ops."

Under Japhrimel's masterful hands, a pair of unfinished flats begins to take shape.

Aeavenne blushes a nice shade of light pink.

Speaking in Faendryl, Maetriks offhandedly says, "Or that."Japhrimel says, "Aye, it was discovered that exposure to significant quantities of sorcerous energies would change the gem from alabaster into what later became called despanal.. after Despana, yep."

Japhrimel leans back with a pleased smile on his face as he looks down at the delicate engraving work he has finished.

Japhrimel begins to carefully attach a sole to the bourde he is working on. He shakes his head as if disappointed by his work.

Under Japhrimel's masterful hands, a pair of unfinished slippers begins to take shape.

You say, "Seems i know what i will be doing once i return to Landing."

Japhrimel says, "Well, make sure to take breaks along the way, it can be daunting."

Japhrimel continues joining the pieces of slippers together, taking his time to do the best job possible.

Japhrimel says, "By the time I finally mastered I was so burnt out I didn't make a shoe for almost a year."

Maetriks nods at Japhrimel.

Japhrimel mutters under his breath.

Japhrimel asks, "Where did?"

Japhrimel says, "Ah ha."

Lord Japhrimel's group just went through an agate-inlaid door.

Speaking to Cobblynau, Japhrimel says, "Don't wander off."

Japhrimel says, "If you'd like shoes, later, let me know."

Japhrimel smiles.

Japhrimel put a black leather book of patterns in his bourde vest.

Allereli nods at Japhrimel.

Japhrimel fiddles about with a pair of unfinished slippers and a set of despanal settings but appears unpleased by the result.

Japhrimel leans back with a pleased smile on his face as he looks down at the delicate engraving work he has finished.

Japhrimel's work appears to be nearing completion.

Speaking quietly in Elven to Tredohal, Demyse says, "Ambassador, it has been a pleasure yet again for another evening. Travel safely and cautiously when rest does finally meet you."

Japhrimel says, "There we are."

Tredohal nods.

Speaking quietly in Elven to Japhrimel, Demyse says, "Interesting insight from you this evening."

Japhrimel says, "Thank you."

Japhrimel steps back and examines the fruits of his labor, waiting just a moment for the final drops of glue to dry.

Japhrimel says, "If you'd like some shoes, I will happily make some."

Japhrimel removes a pair of courtly slippers inset with scarlet despanals from on a sturdy shoe form.

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "This was an excellent evening, except for that one thing, but one never knows who they will find outside the City."

Japhrimel gives his slippers a sharp rap, then nods in satisfaction.

Japhrimel says, "Makes things more interesting."

Japhrimel fusses over some silver-striated bourde open-toed slippers inset with scarlet despanals, making small adjustments.

Japhrimel rubs his silver-striated slippers, dusting off a few stray scraps of leather.

Japhrimel removes a smudge from some silver-striated bourde open-toed slippers inset with scarlet despanals and then holds up his completed work.

Japhrimel offers Tredohal some silver-striated bourde open-toed slippers inset with scarlet despanals.

Japhrimel says, "Here we are."

Speaking quietly in Elven to Japhrimel, Demyse says, "I'll have to keep such in mind, when I need some new sandels."

Speaking in Faendryl, Deckits says, "Speaking with the Palestra was very interesting indeed."

Tredohal accepts Japhrimel's open-toed slippers.

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "Oh my."

Japhrimel asks, "Alright.. now, does anyone else want a pair of shoes tonight?"

Speaking in Faendryl, Tredohal says, "Very lovely."

Japhrimel says, "And, if not tonight, I will happily make them another night for anyone."

You take a drink from your very strong coffee. If it were any more powerful, it would probably be catalogued by the Faendryl as a new kind of demon. Your mouth feels like it wants to turn inside-out from the bitterness.

Speaking in Elven, Luxelle says, "But anytime, Mister Japhrimel. I see you more than at meetings."

Japhrimel adopts an agreeable expression.

Japhrimel says, "Anyone I don't see regularly who might want some."

Japhrimel smiles.

Japhrimel asks, "Cooobra sandals?"

Japhrimel rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Japhrimel says, "Well, if thats the case. then I can take us all back to town."

Speaking amusedly in Faendryl to Japhrimel, Maetriks asks, "Do you have anaconda skin by any chance?"

Japhrimel says, "But do keep in mind, I'm happy to make some of your designs."

Japhrimel rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Speaking to Japhrimel, Laelithonel asks, "Wha'if we want shoes but have no designs?"

Speaking to Maetriks, Japhrimel says, "I didn't bring any, since that's not really a desert snake.. I do have iguana with me, though."

Speaking disgustedly in Faendryl to Japhrimel, Maetriks says, "Ew, no."

Speaking to Laelithonel, Japhrimel says, "Then I will make you some hedgehog gem-inset slippers."

Japhrimel exclaims, "Oh!"

Japhrimel asks, "Cave bat?"

Japhrimel asks, "Anyone?"

Japhrimel says, "Oh, sorry."

Tredohal grins.

Japhrimel says, "It's an undertaker bat skin."

Japhrimel says, "And cave lizard skin."

Japhrimel asks, "Troll zombie for the daring?"

Japhrimel chuckles.

Japhrimel says, "Oh, good."

Japhrimel says, "Alright, well, then let us return to town, if I can't make anything else tonight."

Speaking in Elven to Japhrimel, Luxelle says, "That was terrific! You deserve a raise."

Speaking to Japhrimel, Tysong asks, "The cobbling presentation go as expected?"

Speaking to Luxelle, Japhrimel asks, "Twice what I make now! which is zero.. so.... zero?"

Speaking to Tysong, Japhrimel exclaims, "I expected to make a few more pairs of shoes than I did!"

Speaking in Elven, Luxelle says, "I hate arithmetic."

Tredohal says, "Everything was wonderful."

Luxelle nods at Tredohal.

Japhrimel says, "Well, thank you."

Japhrimel says, "I hope no one was too terribly bored at any point."

Speaking in Elven, Luxelle says, "Never."

Speaking to Japhrimel, Laelithonel says, "Ah jus'didn' know wha' t'ask for."

Speaking to Laelithonel, Japhrimel asks, "Grey-lavender rune-scribed leather flats inset with hedgehog-shaped gems?"

Tredohal says, "I will commission onemore pair before I travel. Perhaps we can open some trade."

Speaking to Tredohal, Japhrimel says, "I would be happy to make more."

Speaking to Japhrimel, Laelithonel says, "Jus' make th'entire shoe hedgehog-shaped."

Laelithonel says, "Spiny slippers."

Speaking to Laelithonel, Japhrimel says, "Now there's an idea."

Japhrimel rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Laelithonel says, "Ah have 'em sometimes."

Tredohal says, "I think i will take my leave for the evening. I have my dance master coming tomorrow."

Tredohal exclaims, "So bring a partner and your dancing shoes!"

Japhrimel says, "Ah yes."

Japhrimel says, "I should make more dance shoes then."

Laelithonel says, "Skirts should be everywhere."

Japhrimel asks, "Everywhere huh?"

Laelithonel nods.

Speaking to Japhrimel, Laelithonel asks, "Where's ya skirt?"

Tredohal says, "Perhaps I will get a seamstress to come and work on some for you."

Japhrimel says, "Ooh, that would be good."

Speaking in Elven, Luxelle says, "You can never have too many skirts."

Speaking to Tredohal, Diablic says, "That would be nice."

Speaking to Laelithonel, you say, "I got a wonderful corset, but nothing to wear with it."

Laelithonel says, "Oooh."

Tredohal says, "Maybe I can round one up tomorrow."

Laelithonel says, "Corsets too... corsets an'skirts an'bodices an'stockin's...."

Japhrimel says, "In the month of Jastatos we were thinking of putting on a Masquerade Ball.. we'll have to show off these dances at it."

Tredohal says, "I am going to take my leave as it has been a long week, but exciting."

Speaking to Diablic, Japhrimel says, "Those are wonderful shoes, by the by."

Tredohal says, "I hope to see you all tomorrow."

Japhrimel nods at Tredohal.

Speaking to Japhrimel, Diablic says, "Thanks."

You say, "Good night Ambassador."

Japhrimel says, "Yes, goodnight."

Japhrimel smiles.

Tredohal bows.

Diablic slings a leaf-etched elven infantry long bow with an ivy-wrapped grip over his shoulder.

Speaking to Diablic, Japhrimel says, "Ah, monkies.. those are so creepy."

Tredohal disbands his group.

Tredohal says, "Have an excellent night and leave some food in the other embassies."

Japhrimel says, "We will leave all the food.. in the krolvin embassy."

Ambassador Tredohal just went out.
